It inhabits a unique sound world, omitting as it does clarinets, violins and violas, and comparisons are guaranteed to be fascinating.

Mind, body and soul

Kate Molleson talks about mind, body and soul with the Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill, as she prepares for concert performances of Bartok's Bluebeard's Castle with Opera North later this month. And Kate speaks to Anna Bull about her new book “Class, Control and Classical Music”, exploring the class barriers into classical music, together with the opera director Adele Thomas and the head of Hull’s music service, James Dickinson. The artist, audio investigator and Turner Prize nominee Lawrence Abu Hamdan muses on the role of sound within both the law and human rights, and describes how he turns his investigations into works of art. Plus Kate asks Daisy Fancourt about her new report for the World Health Organisation – a meta-analysis of 3000 studies examining the role of the music and the arts in improving health and well-being – and visits a soon-to-open pioneering care facility for people living with dementia at Harmonia Village in Kent where music is set to play a central role.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000bffr)
A richly romantic mix with horn player Katy Woolley

Katy Woolley was appointed principal horn of the Philharmonia Orchestra when she was just 22, and has recently taken up the top horn job in Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Today she chooses music that has emotional weight behind it, whether it’s angst-ridden or upbeat, and discovers how composers can unleash that power to move us.

There’s angular dance music by Prokofiev, the public expression of private grief by Brahms and music by Shostakovich that never seems to give up the fight. Plus one of the orchestral repertoire’s most notorious French horn solos given a soulful treatment by Chet Baker, and how some early baroque music has more in common with The Carpenters than you’d think.

At 2 o’clock Katy reveals her Must Listen piece - a work full of shape and colour by a conductor-composer.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m000bfg0)
Die Frau ohne Schatten

On the 10th October 1919 Richard Strauss's grand opera Die Frau ohne Schatten received its premiere at the Vienna State Opera, and 100 years later a top line-up of soloists including Camilla Nylund, Stephen Gould and Nina Stemme give a performance on the same stage under Christian Thielemann. The 'woman without a shadow' of the title is the half-mortal Empress. If she doesn't acquire a shadow within three days, she will be returned to the spirit world, and her Emperor turned to stone. Will she maintain her integrity, or steal a mortal woman's shadow instead? Modeled on Mozart's Magic Flute, the moral fairy-tale is musically very influenced by Wagner, and is on a grand scale with a huge orchestra including an organ, wind machines and a glass harmonica.

Flora Willson presents, and is joined by William Mival to discuss the history and importance of Strauss's score.

Background
While out hunting, the Emperor shoots a gazelle. She is transformed into a young woman; he falls in love with her and marries her. She is the daughter
of the Spirit King Keikobad. However, she must cast a shadow within twelve months or the Emperor will turn to stone and the Empress will have to return to her father. Finally, there are just three days left.

SYNOPSIS
The Emperor is unaware of the impending danger and leaves to go hunting again. Accompanied by the Nurse, the Empress secretly sets off for the human world in order to acquire a shadow. They stop at the home of the Dyer, Barak, and his Wife. The couple live in poverty with Barak’s brothers; they have no children. The Dyer‘s Wife, dissatisfied with her life and her husband, allows herself to be seduced by the promise of riches and is willing to surrender her shadow to the Empress. But if she does this, the Dyer’s Wife will never become a mother. Initially she desires a handsome young man, conjured up by the Nurse, but her conscience prevents her from actually betraying Barak, who loves her more than anything else.

Troubled, she confesses to him what has happened. For Barak, whose sole goal in life is attaining the happiness of a large, close-knit family, his world collapses. He feels a desire to commit murder. At that moment, their world is swallowed up, and the two find themselves separated, in a stone vault. The couple are overcome by remorse, they once again confess their love for each other. For his part, the Emperor believes that the Empress has been unfaithful to him and wishes her dead. However, even in his wrath he cannot kill his wife. The Empress realizes that she can only attain happiness through the misfortune of others – of Barak and his Wife. She decides against her own well-being and does not drink the magic water that will secure her the shadow of the Dyer’s Wife and save the Emperor from being turned to stone.

She has passed the trial to become human, as she has now shown empathy and compassion for others and placed her own personal happiness after that of others. In becoming human she has acquired a shadow – and the Emperor, whom she loves, is saved, as are the Dyer and his Wife. The triumphant closing exultation is softly echoed by the voices of the (as yet)

Unborn Children:
Father, nothing threatens you,
See, Mother, the terror
That led you astray
Is already receding.
Was there ever a feast
Where in secret
We were both the guests
And also the Hosts?


SAT 22:15 New Music Show (m000bfg2)
Claudia Molitor's Decay - a subject we are troubled by

New Music Show: Kate Molleson samples some of the latest happenings in the world of new and experimental sound with a programme which ranges from the quiet meditations of Pascale Criton via the formality of a new quartet by James Dillon to the ear-splitting vocal experimentation of performance artist, Stine Janvin. There's also a substantial track from the latest 'vinyl' release of Claudia Molitor which contemplates the process of decay. As she says: "Decay is a subject we are troubled by and drawn to in equal measures, because it implies decline and loss and also opens up to possibilities of change and transformation. Be it the fermentation process of food, the patina of treasured furniture, the warm sounds of an old cello...Decay embraces the melancholy of loss and rejoices in the promise of change."

Sarah Walker with an enticing musical mix

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

Sarah finds the gravitas of a coronation sparks a moving outburst by Handel, while swallows in flight inspire two very different kinds of folk music.

How does a singer manage to communicate feelings of both purity and angst? Soprano Karita Mattila has the answers in a piece where Bach and Brasil come together - a gorgeous song by Villa-Lobos.

Also, baroque star composer Barbara Strozzi has some cheeky words for the naked goddess Venus and there’s a beautiful balance of emotions in a symphony by Mozart’s friend Michael Haydn.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000bdj0)
YolanDa Brown

In a special programme to coincide with the London Jazz Festival the outstanding saxophonist YolanDa Brown talks to Michael Berkeley about her passion for spreading the joy of music, especially to children.

YolanDa presents 'YolanDa’s Band Jam' on CBeebies and hosts Young Jazz Musician of the Year. She’s an ambassador for BBC Music Day and chair of the charity Youth Music. She has won a string of awards, including two Jazz MOBOs – Music of Black Origin Awards – and her most recent album, 'Love Politics War', topped the jazz charts.

Less well known is that she started out on a career in social science research, taking masters degrees in both Operations Management and Methods of Social Research and beginning a PhD before veering back to her first love – music.

YolanDa talks about the importance of introducing children to live music at the earliest possible age. Her own daughter responded to music in the womb and went to her first opera at the age of four. We hear music from YolanDa’s own first musical outing to see Iolanthe with her father, also at the age of four.

YolanDa describes her vibrant mix of jazz and soul as ‘posh reggae’, influenced by her Jamaican heritage. We hear a track from her latest album and tracks from musicians who have influenced her, including Kamasi Washington, Dave Brubeck and Bobby McFerrin. She talks to Michael about playing the piano and violin as a child; classical music remains very close to her heart, and she chooses music by Schubert and Dvorak.

And we hear a special commission from film composer Hans Zimmer, part of the BBC’s Ten Pieces Trailblazers, which was introduced by YolanDa when she presented this year’s CBeebies Proms.

The Great Highland Bagpipe

From shortbread tins to the Royal Mile, rugby games and highland weddings, the bagpipes have long been a symbol of Scottish identity: but where did they come from, what are they for, and who writes their music? With pipers Simon McKerrell and Brighde Chaimbeul Tom Service explores their history against the backdrop of global piping traditions from Sweden to Macedonia, Spain and Hungary. What's the difference between the ceol mhor and the ceol beag? Are modern pipes more likely to be made from goat or gore-tex? And how did they make their way into everything from ACDC to Eminem, and Berlioz to Bach? Tom is on the case...

Bone Music

Bone Music tells the story of an ingenious Cold War recording technology - using hospital x-ray plates to capture music forbidden in the USSR. Soviet bootleggers began making Bone Records in the later 1940s as troops returned victorious from Germany laden with records - classical, jazz and most of all, popular songs by Russian super-stars living in exile - singers like Alexander Vertinsky and Pyotr Leshchenko. Soon teenagers all over the country were buying the wafer-thin flimsy records that opened up new worlds of sound from Minsk to Vladivostok. Bootleggers risked interrogation and even long prison sentences for distributing the music that mattered, running risks hard to imagine in our digital age of infinite musical abundance and instant sharing.

Bone Music features a live demonstration of cutting discs on x-ray, and lively memories of bootleggers along with the sound of their treasured records.

SUN 19:15 New Generation Thinkers (m000bdjj)
Of Dogs and Duchesses

Sometime in the late eighteenth century, Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, sat in Chatsworth House penning a poem to her pooch. Although heartfelt, at first glance there is little to say about this doggerel verse. The rhymes are bad and it ends abruptly, we don’t know the date, and we are none the wiser about the name of the canine companion in which Georgiana confided...

But if we look across Europe around this time, lap dogs and house dogs were being written about more than ever before. And - allegedly - picking up the pen themselves… they sent letters, not infrequently in French: Frederick the Great’s princessly whippet replied to a little spaniel who solicited her affections; the flirtatious Madame Rococo sent a note to the 6th Duke of Devonshire’s Mr Bony… and dogs took on leading roles in popular literature of the age, too.

Dr Seán Williams from University of Sheffield is curious about these scraps of cultural history. They tell us as much about humans, our ideals and fears, as they do about man's best friend. Seán visits the archives at Chatsworth, digs up readings from Germany, and talks to historian Ingrid Tague, an expert on pets in the eighteenth century. In that period, ideas of innate goodness and trained, proper sociability - the best version of humanity in a civilised world - were projected onto little dogs. But lapdogs in particular also characterised modern society’s ills, sent up in satire to show the worst sides of their human owners.

Creative dogs that voice such cultural aspirations and anxieties are also common today - though they're more likely to be found on social media than as epistles penned by paws. So Seán visits a Pop-Up-Pug-Cafe - surely a first on BBC Radio 3 - where there are pugs a plenty - a dog breed that has been in Britain since the royal court of William and Mary, and mocked by none other than Jane Austen...
He meets 21st century canine characters, to get their own opinions, as well as those of their two-legged friends.

Dr Seán Williams is Lecturer in German and European Cultural History at the University of Sheffield, with a dogged devotion to the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He’s a BBC New Generation Thinker.

Dr Ingrid Tague is Associate Professor of History at the University of Denver in the US. She’s author of Animal Companions: Pets and Social Change in Eighteenth-Century Britain (2015, Penn State University Press).

SUN 23:00 The Future of the Past - Early Music Today (m000bdjn)
Marketing the new

Nicholas Kenyon shows how the arrival of the CD ushered in fresh ways of selling the past.

Fifty years ago a revolution began in classical music. Back then, there was little doubt how to play a Mozart symphony or a Bach passion – it meant big symphonic forces, heavy textures, slow speeds and modern instruments. But then along came period performance: a new generation of musicians researched and revived period instruments, performance styles and forgotten composers. With lighter forces, faster speeds and new tools, they declared war on the interventionist musical culture of the mid-19th century. To start with, they were largely dismissed as eccentrics - Neville Marriner called them "the open-toed-sandals and brown-bread set” – and academics unable to play in tune. But throughout the 1970s and 80s they multiplied and gathered force. Along with the advent of the CD, their newfound repertory and fascinating new-old sound gave a boost to the classical recording industry. They overturned the way classical music was listened to and performed, making household names of musicians whose scholarly credentials became almost as important as their performing flair.

Nicholas Kenyon tells the story of that revolution, from the earliest pioneers to the global superstars of today. Across the series, he’ll uncover the musical detective-work which went on in universities and rehearsal rooms, reliving the incredible vitality of the times through landmark recordings which took the musical world by storm.

In today’s episode, Nicholas tells us how record companies rode the wave of the early music revival’s success, embracing the arrival of the CD and using it to sell the past in a fresh new way. At first, this new medium with all its sparkling clarity provided the perfect excuse to re-record works, but then they took the excitement of the baroque and pushed it forward into the classical period. Audiences lapped up their new versions of familiar masterpieces. Was this going to be the sound of the future? And were conventional orchestras done for?

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000bdx0)
Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981)

The little piano girl of East Liberty

Donald Macleod charts the extraordinary life of composer and jazz pianist Mary Lou Williams beginning with her impoverished childhood growing up in Georgia and Pennsylvania.

Mary Lou Williams’ music stands out from the crowd because, as Duke Ellington recognised, “her writing and performing have always been just a little ahead throughout her career.” A prolific composer and arranger, she was also a gifted pianist. A master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing and be-bop, Williams was quick to absorb the prevailing musical currents in her own music, naturally able to exploit her ability to play anything she heard around her. It is this restless musical curiosity that defines her own compositions, and led her to become friends with and mentor many younger musicians, among them Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Born around 1910 in Atlanta, Georgia, Williams grew up in Pittsburgh, where she had to overcome racial segregation, gender discrimination and the disadvantages of an impoverished family to realise her musical ambitions. Learning to play entirely by ear, she was performing locally by age six. Barely into her teens she was touring professionally as a pianist, living proof that - contrary to the prevailing views - women really could play jazz as well as men. But her artistic success came at some personal cost, with instances of domestic abuse, two divorces, a gambling addiction, and the ongoing strain of trying to support her extended family, all taking its toll over the years. After taking a spiritual path, she spent some years trying to rehabilitate addicted musicians, and developed an interest in writing sacred jazz pieces, and after a long career of some sixty years she took on the mantle of educating future generations about the cultural roots of jazz.

Over the course of the week Donald Macleod follows Mary Lou Williams as her life and musical pathways intertwine, from the early years playing Kansas City swing, to embracing be-bop, religion and modern jazz.

When she was around three years old, sitting on her mother's lap as she played the harmonium, suddenly Mary Lou Williams reached up and replicated exactly what she'd just heard her mother do. It was a defining moment. Williams' future had just been decided, and in her own words, "I never left the piano after that."

Heroes and Heartache

Conductor Joseph Swensen draws on his Norwegian roots to perform two stunning works by Edward Grieg with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. First on the bill is his cherished Peer Gynt, the incidental music to Henrik Ibsen's play heard here in the first suite of music that Grieg compiled from the original production. Following that, the Orchestra are joined by Yevgeny Sudbin for a performance of Grieg's celebrated Piano Concerto; full of Norwegian folk-music influences, it was the piece that helped launch Grieg's compositional career. The evening concludes with Tchaikovsky's emotionally charged Sixth Symphony, the Pathetique. It was the last symphony that he would write, and he famously died only nine days after conducting the premiere.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, recorded in St. David's Hall, Cardiff last week.

Legacies of 1619

Philip Quaque

To mark the 400 years since the arrival of African slaves to America, the author and playwright Caryl Phillips reflects on the life of one individual.

In February 1766, a twenty-five year old African man, Philip Quaque, arrived back in his native Africa, with an English wife. He had been taken to England as a teenager to be educated as a Christian missionary. In England he had been ordained into the church, and married, and now the young man was to serve in a slave fort as both a missionary to his own African people, and a Chaplain to the English troops and merchants stationed on the coast. His was an impossible situation, trapped as he was between the hostility of his own people and the disdain of the English. For nearly half a century he managed to maintain a life balanced between these two opposing groups, and he recorded the anxieties visited upon him in a remarkable series of letters that he dispatched back to his employers in England.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000bfn7)
Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981)

The lady who swings the band

Donald Macleod charts the extraordinary life of composer and jazz pianist Mary Lou Williams. Today he explores her years of graft on tour in vaudeville and with Andy Kirk's 12 Clouds of Joy.

Mary Lou Williams’ music stands out from the crowd because, as Duke Ellington recognised, “her writing and performing have always been just a little ahead throughout her career.” A prolific composer and arranger, she was also a gifted pianist. A master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing and be-bop, Williams was quick to absorb the prevailing musical currents in her own music, naturally able to exploit her ability to play anything she heard around her. It is this restless musical curiosity that defines her own compositions, and led her to become friends with and mentor many younger musicians, among them Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Born around 1910 in Atlanta, Georgia, Williams grew up in Pittsburgh, where she had to overcome racial segregation, gender discrimination and the disadvantages of an impoverished family to realise her musical ambitions. Learning to play entirely by ear, she was performing locally by age six. Barely into her teens she was touring professionally as a pianist, living proof that - contrary to the prevailing views - women really could play jazz as well as men. But her artistic success came at some personal cost, with instances of domestic abuse, two divorces, a gambling addiction, and the ongoing strain of trying to support her extended family, all taking its toll over the years. After taking a spiritual path, she spent some years trying to rehabilitate addicted musicians, and developed an interest in writing sacred jazz pieces, and after a long career of some sixty years she took on the mantle of educating future generations about the cultural roots of jazz.

Over the course of the week Donald Macleod follows Mary Lou Williams as her life and musical pathways intertwine, from the early years playing Kansas City swing, to embracing be-bop, religion and modern jazz.

A bit of a dare-devil and a gypsy, life on the road appealed to Mary Lou Williams. She couldn't wait to leave her home town of Pittsburgh, first joining Buzzin’ Harris and His Hits ‘n Bits on tour, but it wasn't too long before she was attracting attention from some bigger fish.

Part of Wells Cathedral School, and set in beautiful, leafy surroundings, this purpose built arts venue, which opened its doors in 2016, is justifiably proud of the acoustic in its main concert hall.

A former Radio 3 New Generation Artist, over the next few days Shai's programming features one of Schubert's profound late sonatas, keyboard miniatures by Scarlatti, the American experimentalist, Frederick Rzewski and delves into chamber repertoire too. He begins today with Janáček's impressionistic "In the mists", a snapshot of Debussy in a gentle Lullaby and Fauré's highly romantic and virtuosic Piano Quintet in C minor, Op 115, which he plays with fellow musicians from the International Musicians Seminar in Prussia Cove, Cornwall.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m000bfnm)
Are the arts saving Margate?

The seaside town of Margate has both struggled and thrived over the past two centuries – it thronged with holidaymakers from the Victorian era onwards but limped through the latter half of the 20th century and was one of the most deprived parts of the UK before the £17.5m Turner Contemporary opened in 2011. Many hoped that the new art gallery would spearhead change and eight years on there has clearly been growth – the town sometimes jokingly referred to as Shoreditch-on-Sea has been through a wave of gentrification, complete with the common trappings of independent cafés, vintage shops and yoga studios, frequented by an ever-growing artistic community bolstered by regular arrivals of Londoners fleeing the capital. Tourist numbers are up, with the Dreamland amusement park reopening and over 3.2m visitors to the Turner Contemporary reported since its launch. This narrative of a successful arts-led regeneration however ignores that fact that Margate remains in the top 1% of deprived communities in the country and in some wards around half of all children live in poverty. The painter JMW Turner once remarked of Margate that it had the ‘loveliest’ skies in Europe, but can they brighten prospects for the local community, as well as for the artists that flock there?

As this year’s Turner Prize comes to Margate for the first time, Philip Dodd looks at whether the arts are a successful driver of regeneration, with Turner Contemporary Director Victoria Pomery and the social artist Dan Thompson, who has looked at people, place and change throughout his career.

We reflect on the Turner Prize exhibition itself, and the work of shortlisted artists Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Helen Cammock, Oscar Murillo and Tai Shani. The exhibition runs at Turner Contemporary until January 12th and the winner is announced on December 3rd.

The author Maggie Gee’s new novel Blood is set in Margate and the surrounding area of Thanet. A darkly comic crime thriller set in Brexit Britain East Kent where the political atmosphere bleeds into the action. Her imposing protagonist Monica is accused of murdering the tyrannical patriarch of her family – a situation complicated by the fact she’s armed with an axe ready to do just that, when she finds her father’s body. Maggie tells us about Blood and how the local area is a perfect canvas for the story.

Margate is hosting several events as part of Being Human, the UK’s national festival of the humanities which runs from November 14th to the 23rd – you can find more information on their website https://beinghumanfestival.org/

Literary historian Professor Carolyn Oulton is hosting a Murder Mystery trail in Margate for Being Human, amongst other things, and has been studying seaside towns in literature during the railway age. She gives us a view of Margate from the Victorian era – a bustling, promiscuous, populist place full of tourists – and the kind of stories set there. Crime and romance reads for the beach did particularly well for the holiday market, with works like Love in a Mist and Death in a Deckchair key tomes in the Margate canon.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000bfnp)
Legacies of 1619

Isaac

To mark 400 years since the arrival of African slaves to America, the author Daina Berry reflects on Isaac, who led a rebellion, and whose life ended in a final act of defiance.

Reflecting on the 400-year anniversary of African arrivals in America and the legacy of slavery, Daina Berry is drawn to an enslaved man she met while researching her book The Price for their Pound of Flesh. His name is Isaac and she learned about him through a 19th-century newspaper that recorded his remarkable story. He is someone she thinks of often because of his expression of soul values which enslaved people clung to and used to resist the commodification of their bodies. Daina shares Isaac’s story, his powerful statement, and legacies of slavery that reverberate today.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000bf6h)
Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981)

Strikin' out

Donald Macleod charts the extraordinary life of composer and jazz pianist Mary Lou Williams. Today a dramatic break with Andy Kirk and the 12 Clouds of Joy gives Williams the space to work on ambitious projects in her own name.

Mary Lou Williams’ music stands out from the crowd because, as Duke Ellington recognised, “her writing and performing have always been just a little ahead throughout her career.” A prolific composer and arranger, she was also a gifted pianist. A master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing and be-bop, Williams was quick to absorb the prevailing musical currents in her own music, naturally able to exploit her ability to play anything she heard around her. It is this restless musical curiosity that defines her own compositions, and led her to become friends with and mentor many younger musicians, among them Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Born around 1910 in Atlanta, Georgia, Williams grew up in Pittsburgh, where she had to overcome racial segregation, gender discrimination and the disadvantages of an impoverished family to realise her musical ambitions. Learning to play entirely by ear, she was performing locally by age six. Barely into her teens she was touring professionally as a pianist, living proof that - contrary to the prevailing views - women really could play jazz as well as men. But her artistic success came at some personal cost, with instances of domestic abuse, two divorces, a gambling addiction, and the ongoing strain of trying to support her extended family, all taking its toll over the years. After taking a spiritual path, she spent some years trying to rehabilitate addicted musicians, and developed an interest in writing sacred jazz pieces, and after a long career of some sixty years she took on the mantle of educating future generations about the cultural roots of jazz.

Over the course of the week Donald Macleod follows Mary Lou Williams as her life and musical pathways intertwine, from the early years playing Kansas City swing, to embracing be-bop, religion and modern jazz. .

A move to New York in the 1940s saw Mary Lou Williams putting together her own groups and accepting her own commissions to write and record, courted by some of the greatest band leaders of the day. Pushing boundaries, the Zodiac Suite was conceptually inspired by classical music, and she was also mingling and dabbling with the ideas of the be-bop generation in her own music.

Schubert, Scarlatti and Rzewski

Vocal Jewels by Elgar and Brahms

David Hill celebrates the synthesis between voice and orchestra in a programme that brings together two leading romantic figures, Edward Elgar and Johannes Brahms. Marking his tenth anniversary as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's Associate Guest Conductor, tonight's concert opens with Elgar's only song cycle, Sea Pictures, sung by Jennifer Johnston. The text uses five poems, each one by a different author, to explore the fragility of man facing the depths of the sea, with the colours of the orchestral accompaniment evoking the ocean's changing moods. In the second half, the Bournemouth Symphony Chorus and soloists Jennifer Davis and Gareth Brynmor John join the orchestra to perform Brahms' A German Requiem. Begun in the wake of his friend Schumann's death, and standing as a musical memorial to his mother, Brahms selected passages from Martin Luther's translation of the bible to create his own texts. The result is an uplifting and deeply human work that carries a message of hope and comfort to the living.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000bg25)
Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981)

Music for the soul

Donald Macleod's survey of Mary Lou Williams sees her establish a charitable refuge for jazz musicians who were struggling with addictions and turning her mind to a new direction, writing religiously inspired jazz.

Mary Lou Williams’ music stands out from the crowd because, as Duke Ellington recognised, “her writing and performing have always been just a little ahead throughout her career.” A prolific composer and arranger, she was also a gifted pianist. A master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing and be-bop, Williams was quick to absorb the prevailing musical currents in her own music, naturally able to exploit her ability to play anything she heard around her. It is this restless musical curiosity that defines her own compositions, and led her to become friends with and mentor many younger musicians, among them Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Born around 1910 in Atlanta, Georgia, Williams grew up in Pittsburgh, where she had to overcome racial segregation, gender discrimination and the disadvantages of an impoverished family to realise her musical ambitions. Learning to play entirely by ear, she was performing locally by age six. Barely into her teens she was touring professionally as a pianist, living proof that - contrary to the prevailing views - women really could play jazz as well as men. But her artistic success came at some personal cost, with instances of domestic abuse, two divorces, a gambling addiction, and the ongoing strain of trying to support her extended family, all taking its toll over the years. After taking a spiritual path, she spent some years trying to rehabilitate addicted musicians, and developed an interest in writing sacred jazz pieces, and after a long career of some sixty years she took on the mantle of educating future generations about the cultural roots of jazz.

Over the course of the week Donald Macleod follows Mary Lou Williams as her life and musical pathways intertwine, from the early years playing Kansas City swing, to embracing be-bop, religion and modern jazz.

The 1950s were difficult years for Mary Lou Williams. Work was hard to come by in New York so she looked to Europe for bookings. During an extended sojourn in Paris she experienced a major spiritual crisis which was to have lasting consequences.

John Storgards (conductor)

The BBC Philharmonic's Chief Guest Conductor, John Storgards brings music from his Lapland home to Manchester. Outi Tarkiainen's "Midnight Sun Variations" immerses us in the light of the arctic tundra on a Summer's night, in the least polluted part of Europe, and amongst dense mysterious forests. Summer moves towards the mists of Autumn, she says, the time of year her first baby was born, the parting of mother and child restoring her former self. Kalevi Aho's Theremin Concerto, written for Carolina Eyck, widely considered the world's leading exponent of the instrument, also takes its inspiration from the natural world. The native Sami of Lapland divide the year into eight seasons which become the eight movements of the piece and the unique sound-world portrays different snow landscapes, the mists of Autumn and the last section of the piece is titled "Midnight Sun". The third movement of Shostakovich's Twelfth Symphony is headed "Aurora" but we move in a completely different direction here; this was the name of the battleship whose first shots at the Winter Palace heralded the start of the 1917 Revolution. Dedicated to Lenin this is perhaps Shostakovich's most filmic Symphony and graphically depicts the events of the Revolution.

Mary Prince and Sally Hemings

To mark the 400 years since the arrival of African slaves to America, Jamaican born author Anne Bailey reflects on two remarkable women pertinent to this commemoration and discusses how they have influenced her journey as a Black female historian.

Mary Prince, a West Indian slave who after enduring incredible hardships at the hands of several masters obtained her freedom and wrote an abolitionist narrative that was published in Britain. And Sally Hemings—the enigmatic enslaved mistress of Thomas Jefferson who never officially received her freedom and who never wrote her own story yet as a historical figure looms large in history and in memory.

Anne Bailey reflects on how each of them represented freedom in their own way.

Mary Lou Williams (1910-1981)

The priest and the jazz musician

Donald Macleod survey of Mary Lou Williams finds her still breaking boundaries musically and embracing a role teaching jazz history at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.

Mary Lou Williams’ music stands out from the crowd because, as Duke Ellington recognised, “her writing and performing have always been just a little ahead throughout her career.” A prolific composer and arranger, she was also a gifted pianist. A master of blues, boogie woogie, stride, swing and be-bop, Williams was quick to absorb the prevailing musical currents in her own music, naturally able to exploit her ability to play anything she heard around her. It is this restless musical curiosity that defines her own compositions, and led her to become friends with and mentor many younger musicians, among them Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.

Learning to play entirely by ear, she was performing locally by age six. Barely into her teens she was touring professionally as a pianist, living proof that - contrary to the prevailing views - women really could play jazz as well as men. But her artistic success came at some personal cost, with instances of domestic abuse, two divorces, a gambling addiction, and the ongoing strain of trying to support her extended family, all taking its toll over the years. After taking a spiritual path, she spent some years trying to rehabilitate addicted musicians, and developed an interest in writing sacred jazz pieces, and after a long career of some sixty years she took on the mantle of educating future generations about the cultural roots of jazz.

Over the course of the week Donald Macleod follows Mary Lou Williams as her life and musical pathways intertwine, from the early years playing Kansas City swing, to embracing be-bop, religion and modern jazz.

After some fifty years of ups and downs and sheer hard graft, from 1966 Mary Lou Williams was managed by a Jesuit priest, Father O'Brien. A decade on she was finally financially secure, able to devote herself to her own varied projects, performing, writing and producing critically acclaimed recordings, and realising a long cherished ambition, a history of Jazz.

Legacies of 1619

John Ocansey

In April 1881, a young African man named John Ocansey set sail from the Gold Coast (modern day Ghana) for Liverpool in order to try and discover what had happened to goods that his father had dispatched to a Liverpudlian agent. The Africans had not received the two and a half thousand pounds they were owed in exchange for the goods, and rather than sit at home and accept the fact that they had most likely been swindled, young John Ocansey had decided to journey to the world-famous port of Liverpool and claim the money that rightfully belonged to his father. Trading between Africa and Liverpool had been established for over two centuries, and was based on the slave trade in which it was understood that Africans had no rights. Even after the abolition of the trade such attitudes persisted, but Ocansey was determined that he would not be treated as a slave.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000bgvb)
Pan Daijing and Coby Sey

Pan Daijing, the self-taught, self-proclaimed outsider artist meets MC and producer Coby Sey for the first time in a fully improvised recording session featuring electronics, piano, bass and voice.

Born and raised in Guiyang, Southwest China, Pan Daijing has been based in Berlin since 2016. She tells visceral, emotional, poetic stories through a practice that combines composition, performance art, cinema, theatre, opera, noise, and more.

Lewisham’s Coby Sey has a wonderfully open approach to music, collaborating frequently with the likes of Tirzah, Klein and Kwes. His work often skilfully blends spoken word, vocals, live instrumentation, electronics and improvised DJ-ing to create new visions of club music. His collective Curl, founded with Mica Levi and Brother May among others, performed an amazing set at the inaugural Late Junction festival earlier this year.

Elsewhere in the programme we hear live concert highlights from the recent edition of ‘Le Guess Who?’, the avant-garde music festival that has been hosted in Utrecht, the Netherlands, since 2009.

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