9.30am Building a Library: Mahan Esfahani listens to and compares recordings of Verdi's opera La Traviata

The tale of the consumptive courtesan rescued from a life of reckless and meaningless pleasure by an idealistic and ardent lover is one of the most popular operas in the repertoire. Written by Verdi in the white heat of his middle period when he was creating one masterpiece after another and forging an ever closer relationship between music, text and drama, La Traviata has attracted some of the best sopranos who ever went into a recording studio.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0009k6c)
New York Special

Tom Service talks to Steve Reich, for many one of the most important composers alive today. He visits Carnegie Hall and St George’s Episcopal Church Rutherford Place where Dvorak played a key role in the development of black American classical music. Then to The New School which opened in 1919 as a centre of intellectual and artistic freedom where John Cage studied and taught experimental composition as well as Judson Church where choreographers, artists, and composers met in a socially engaged space to redefine what it is to make art in a spiritual and secular community. Tom also talks to composers and performers Claire Chase and Kamala Sankaram who breathe life and sound into this city, creating a multi-dimensional song that’s as vibrant and visionary as New York has always been.

From musical beginnings in a carnival band, to being the first ever saxophone finalist in BBC Young Musician, and appearances at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018 and at this year’s BAFTA awards, Jess is one of today’s most engaging and charismatic classical performers. Each week on This Classical Life, Jess will be joined by young musicians to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0001psn)
Cellist Natalie Clein chooses music that satisfies both mind and heart

Cellist Natalie Clein describes what it’s like playing J.S. Bach’s inexorable bass lines, thinks about how important silence is - both in music and everyday life, and presents two very different versions of the tango.

She also introduces us to a refreshing take on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the granite-like construction of Sibelius’s 5th Symphony.

Natalie’s Must Listen piece at 2pm takes us into the world of one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century - performing his own music.

A series in which each week a musician explores a selection of music - from the inside.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (m0009jyw)
Sarah Walker with an engrossing musical mix

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.

An elegant early symphony from a composer who also happened to be King George III’s astronomer, pearly piano sounds from young pianist Yeol Eum Son performing some rarely played Mozart, and an orchestral painting of woods and fields in old Bohemia. Plus a sonata by Francis Poulenc that Sarah has played herself on both flute and piano.

Further afield Sarah finds Brazilian bossa nova meeting the mesmeric repetitions of Steve Reich’s music, and three trumpets playing JS Bach are followed a little later on by the unique sound of trumpeter Miles Davis in a moment from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0009jz0)
Selina Cadell

Selina Cadell is one of our most versatile and accomplished actresses - from French and Saunders to Chekhov on Broadway, and from Alan Bennett to Shakespeare, she brings humour and sensitivity to stage and screen. Michael Billington described her recent performance in Charlotte Jones’s play Humble Boy as ‘one of the best pieces of acting you’ll see anywhere'.

Instantly recognisable to millions as the infatuated neck-braced pharmacist in the hugely popular TV series Doc Martin, Selina has another string to her bow – as a director specialising in 18th-century drama and, particularly, opera. She talks to Michael Berkeley about how she coaches singers to become better actors and she chooses arias from operas she’s directed: Handel’s 'Arianna in Creta' and Stravinsky’s 'The Rake’s Progress', written in 1951 but set in Handel’s time.

Selina shares memories of her godfather Sir Ralph Richardson - and his acting tips – and we hear his beautiful reading of Keats’s Ode to a Nightingale. She chooses a song by Noel Coward in memory of her brother, the actor Simon Cadell, and she speaks movingly about the death of her husband and mother earlier this year, choosing Debussy’s 'La Mer' as a celebration of her husband’s love of the sea.

SUN 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0009c24)
The Russian Soul

From Wigmore Hall, London, the Borodin Quartet, one of the world's legendary ensembles, returns with an all-Russian programme. The quartet joins forces with the renowned Irish pianist, Barry Douglas in Shostakovich's powerful Piano Quintet, one of the composer's best-known chamber works. It was written for the Beethoven Quartet who gave its premiere in Moscow in 1941, and then won Shostakovich the Stalin Prize in 1941. The Borodin Quartet also play the elegiac Andante cantabile from Tchaikovsky's 1st String Quartet, and Barry Douglas plays two movements from Tchaikovsky's cycle, The Seasons.

Presented by Andrew McGregor.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m0009jz4)
Le Poème Harmonique at the Utrecht Early Music Festival

A concert given by Le Poème Harmonique at the JacobiKerk as part of the 2019 Utrecht Early Music Festival. 17th Century Music: vanities & contrafacta from Naples to Rome. Presented by Lucie Skeaping.

Naples, 1640. A pilgrim mingles with a colourful crowd as it moves in a vast procession. Along the cortege are heard laudi, simple devotionals sung in unison, and belted out with popular enthusiasm. Of the faithful, few know the authors of these melodies, and yet they live and work in the city.
When the traveller were to enter a church, he would have found it hard to believe their eyes or ears. Lost in the Baroque décor, they risked being equally led astray by the music. Rather than hymns, echoing off the walls would be the roar of battle, a lover’s plaint or a dramatic quarrel. And yet, in Latin, under the heavy vaulting and between the twisted columns, they would still hear the names of Christ and the Virgin.
From its earliest beginnings, the musical language of opera has been the language of passion, even in church, where saints and sinners express themselves like lyrical figures; from the profane to the sacred, voices often merge.

Music by Claudio Monteverdi, Gregorio Allegri, Luigi Rossi and Marco Marazzoli.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0009jzd)
Turn up the volume, dial up the drama

From loud to soft, even louder and even softer, dynamics are crucial to the dramatic effect of music.
Tom Service discovers just how loud and soft classical music can be, and pop music that is louder still. Is it all about loudness or are the quiet moments more evocative?

With the Royal College of Music’s Head of Composition, William Mival, and BBC Sound engineer Matilda Macari, Tom gives an insight into just how loud the music that we're hearing through our radios is.

Produced by Calantha Bonnissent


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0009jzh)
What Is Modern Art?

From scoffing critics to celebrations of invention - prose, poetry and music inspired by art with readings by Peter Wight and Indra Ové.

We hear from TV presenter Jeremy Paxman questioning Damien Hirst, the Director of the Tate 1938–64 John Rothenstein's analysis of Bridget Riley's art of optical illusion and predictions about the future of art from the influential Australian Robert Hughes - presenter and author of the Shock of the New 1980 documentary television series.

Readings include Christina Rosetti's poem In an Artist's Studio, extracts from Plato on what making art is; the American critic Susan Sontag's argument for a new erotics of art; John Donne's poem Witchcraft by a Picture; a speech from the hit play Art, written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton, which depicted the response of his friends to a man buying a completely white painting and the views of residents in Harlem to photographs of their streets in an essay from Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts.

Claude Debussy scorned the term Impressionism but it didn't stop critics using it to describe his compositions and the music choices in this programme include Debussy's La Mer performed by Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic, Don McLean's Vincent inspired by Van Gogh's painting of Starry Nights, Clarence "Pinetop" Smith's Boogie Woogie and Four Organs by composer Steve Reich, one of the people sharing their view of an art work from the collection of MOMA, in New York in the new podcast and Essay series The Way I See It - which you can find on BBC Radio 3 at 10.45pm or available to download.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0009jzk)
The Hidden Reservoir

Author Carlo Gebler believes Northern Ireland is sitting on a hidden reservoir of pain.

50 years on from the onset of the Troubles, estimates suggest around a quarter of the population continues to be affected by the psychological trauma of the conflict.

No political agreement has been reached on how to deal with the legacy of the violence - yet for many victims and survivors, members of the security forces, individuals, families and even ex-combatants - the past is something which can’t just be left behind.

As a teacher of creative writing in some of Northern Ireland’s toughest prisons, Carlo Gebler witnessed first hand the transformative role the arts can play in enabling positive change. Now Carlo looks at the numerous arts based initiatives, schemes and individual projects aimed at promoting peace-building and reconciliation in Northern Ireland - and asks they’re helping to heal a society still in pain - or simply perpetuating bitter memories.

A Khoisan Woman by Zodwa Nyoni

Saartjie Baartman is the proud embodiment of the Khoisan women of South Africa. But in London 1810, she is the Hottentot Venus, a freak of race and sexuality on display for the audiences' amusement. Saartjie stands as the epitome of colonial exploitation, ridicule and commodification of black women.

Schubert and Weinberg

Fiona Talkington presents performances from across Europe

We are back this week at the Würzburg Mozart Festival with two Schubert symphonies - live performances of pieces that Heinz Holliger has been working with the Basel Chamber Orchestra to bring out as commercial recordings.

And the Karajan Academy are back with Ravel. The young musicians of the Karajan Academy are supported and mentored by members of the Berlin Philharmonic and are playing Ravel's orchestral tribute to Couperin.

And among these orchestral delights comes a powerful Piano Trio by Mieczysław Weinberg, a Polish-born composer of Jewish heritage, who fled east to the Soviet Union at the outbreak of the Second World War - he was the only survivor from his immediate family. Weinberg struck up a friendship with Shostakovich and this trio shares some of his friend's soundworld, but this is also a powerfully personal and individual piece. The Marvin Trio have been winning chamber music prizes across the globe, exciting audiences with their skill and commitment, and this resonates strongly in the Weinberg Trio as they count former Eastern Bloc countries as their homes.

Identity

Baritone Benjamin Appl delves into the great treasure trove of German Lieder, French melodies and English art song. He finds music and lyrics which he matches in a very down-to-earth way to his everyday experience as a Lieder singer in the 21st century. In this programme he talks about the problem of singing competitions, where to find inspiration, the dangers of imitating idols, the skills a Lieder singer needs and he asks why there is only a handful of female accompanists. Includes songs by Britten, Schubert and Poulenc. Features singers such as Veronique Gens, Theresa Berganza, Peter Pears, Felicity Lott and Nicolai Gedda.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b098fpbc)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

A step forward

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today it's Manon Lescaut, a woman whose love of pleasure and the good life ultimately leads to her destruction.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì, Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, Puccini was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly pushing the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - which include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

It was his third opera, Manon Lescaut that marked a significant turning point for Puccini. After three years of hard graft, working with a succession of librettists on this adaptation of Abbé Provost's novel, when it was premiered in Turin in 1893, the critics were universal in their praise, citing in particular the quality of the vocal writing.

Steve Reich on Richard Serra’s Equal

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features composer, and chief exponent of Minimalism, Steve Reich. As he stands in front of eight steel boxes stacked in pairs, each box weighing forty tons, he reflects on the effect Richard Serra's work, "Equal" has on our sense of space. But does it change the way he thinks about his own work?

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b098hrbq)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

The Bohemians

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss Puccini's vivid evocation of student life, La Bohème, and the characters of the fragile embroiderer, Mimì and the flamboyant Musetta.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, Puccini was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Set in the Latin Quarter of Paris, and premiered in 1896, La Bohème was the first of a series of highly successful collaborations with the writers Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica.

Britten: the Shostakovich connection

As part of a weekend at Snape Maltings celebrating Britten's relationship with Russia, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Jac van Steen give a concert inspired by the long friendship between Britten and his Russian counterpart, Shostakovich. Britten wrote his Russian Funeral Music around a revolutionary tune, which commemorates lives lost in the Russian revolutionary cause; Shostakovich would also go on to use this theme in his 11th Symphony. Cellist Alban Gerhardt takes up Britten's masterful Cello Symphony, the second piece that Britten wrote for Rostropovich, who was a long-term collaborator, first introduced to Britten by none other than Shostakovich. And the evening culminates in Shostakovich's deeply personal 10th Symphony, a work which takes the listener on a journey through the depths of the soul.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

A Roman truth

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss one of the most passionate and complex of characters, Tosca.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì, Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Now firmly established as an internationally acclaimed figure, there was a lot of hype surrounding a new opera by Puccini. But when Tosca was first heard in Rome on 14th January 1900, the audience simply didn't get what they were hearing. They were confused. Where, they asked was the melody?

2018 Hay Festival - Mendelssohn Plus performed by Tom Poster

Sarah Walker presents Mendelssohn Plus, with music performed by the pianist Tom Poster, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2018 Hay Festival. Included in the concert is a selection of Felix Mendelssohn's art songs for piano. This was a new genre at the time, and could be traced to the composer's childhood with his sister, Fanny Hensel, when they would both compose music for the piano and then add texts. Hensel also composed a Nocturne, which the pianist Tom Poster contrasts with other examples in this genre, including examples by Clara Schumann and Maria Szymanowska. The concert ends with scenes from the forest by Robert Schumann, involving a Hunter waiting in ambush, and also a visit to a Wayside Inn.

Love, song and travel

Live from the BBC's Maida Vale Studios, Ben Gernon conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Tonight we hear two famous song cycles featuring British singers, the UK premiere of British composer Anna Clyne’s Abstractions (in which five contemporary artworks are re-imagined in music) and Tchaikovsky’s symphonic poem Francesca da Rimini – she was the tragic beauty immortalized in Dante's Divine Comedy.

And in a week of Radio 3 in Concert that highlights some of Britten’s works with orchestra, tonight we hear Les Illuminations for which the young composer set surreal and evocative texts by Arthur Rimbaud - soprano Sally Matthews is the soloist. BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist James Newby sings Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer, which sprang into life in the wake of an unhappy love affair. Mahler wrote the four poems himself: they and the music reflect his emotional journey.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

A sea of misery

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss Puccini's personal favourite, the tragic geisha, Madama Butterfly.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Based on a play he'd seen in London by David Belasco, Madama Butterfly ended up causing Puccini more heartache than either Tosca or La bohème. At the opening night at La Scala Milan on 17th February 1904 the action on stage was drowned out by the catcalls from the audience. Worse was to come. When the curtain came down at the end there was total silence. Out of all this anguish, what really stands out is Puccini's creation of surely the most heart-breaking and delicate of heroines, Cio-cio San, Madama Butterly.

2018 Hay Festival - Mendelssohn Plus performed by the Albion Quartet

Sarah Walker presents Mendelssohn Plus with music performed by the Albion Quartet, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2018 Hay Festival. Included in the concert is Mendelssohn's Capriccio for string quartet, written in 1843 just a few years before the composer's early death. Also in one movement is Maconchy's third string quartet. This was written in 1938 just before the outbreak of World War Two for the New Hungarian Quartet. It was another ensemble, the Florentine Quartet who contacted Dvorak with a commission for something Slavonic. This was due to the composer's recent success with his first set of Slavonic Dances. Dvorak's response was his tenth string quartet, which includes a Czech polka and a Ukrainian dumka.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b098n9x6)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

Three for One

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano concludes this series exploring Puccini's heroines with Il trittico, three one-act operas and three contrasting female leads, Il tabarro's Giorgetta, Suor Angelica and Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, for whom he wrote one of the most beautiful, soaring melodies in opera, O mio babbino caro.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking a perfect synthesis between music and action, constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

The success of Puccini's trilogy of one-act operas, Il trittico at its New York premiere in 1918 ended a difficult decade for the composer. He'd started and abandoned several theatrical projects but now, finally, his hunger to embrace a new and modern musical language found expression in these three carefully balanced narratives: the darkly impressionistic Il tabarro follows Giorgetta and Luigi's illicit affair to a shocking conclusion, Puccini's own personal favourite, recounts a moment of truth and its tragic consequences for Suor Angelica and to round the evening off, greedy relatives are outwitted in the fast paced comic opera Gianni Schicchi.

Included in the concert is Felix Mendelssohn's first cello sonata, composed in 1838 for his brother Paul who was an amateur cellist, and written at a happy time when the Mendelssohn's were expecting their first child. In contrast the E minor sonata by Dora Pejacevic was composed just before the outbreak of World War One, and revised in 1915. This was a period when the composer reached her creative maturity, penning many large-scale works including a symphony and a piano concerto.

Britten and Russia

In 1960, Benjamin Britten attended a concert at the Royal Festival Hall in which Shostakovich's Cello concerto was being given its London Premiere, alongside Britten's Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra. The cellist at the concert was Rostropovich, and Shostakovich was in attendance during one of his few visits to the UK. Britten met both of these Russian musical giants there for the first time, and it was to create two long-lasting relationships, both personal and professional. In this concert the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Jac van Steen recreate that seminal concert, with BBC Young Musician 2012 Laura van der Heijden taking the part of Rostropovich in Shostakovich's Concerto. As in 1960, the performance culminates with another Russian great, Rachmaninov's Third Symphony.

Recorded at Snape Maltings last Sunday and presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas.

FRI 22:45 The Way I See It (m0009llz)
John Waters on Lee Lozano's Untitled 1963

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features film director John Waters. He chooses Lee Lozano's depiction of a head of a hammer, "Untitled 1963", but what will cult film specialist and director of Pink Flamingos make of such an apparently utilitarian subject?

Producer: Tom Alban


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0009lm1)
Akari Wauja and Nathaniel Mann

Nathaniel Mann, a composer, singer, and sound artist from Essex, recently travelled to the Xingu reservation in Brazil to visit the indigenous community, the Wauja. There he met and recorded with renowned musician and storyteller Akari Wauja, whose mission is to keep his culture alive for younger generations, and to draw attention to the plight of the rainforest habitat and its people.

Tonight this remarkable, unique collaboration comes to the BBC Studios in London, for a live session of improvisation and open-form composition, featuring foot bells, bamboo drums, electric bass, and singing. Late Junction is honoured to host Akari Wauja for his first-ever radio performance, on his first trip to Europe.

Elsewhere in the programme we move from the Amazon to London’s Heathrow Airport, as Verity Sharp showcases Kate Carr’s field recordings from under a flight path.

Produced by Jack Howson.
A Reduced Listening Production for BBC Radio 3.
