9.30am Building a Library – Another chance to hear Kate Molleson discussing her favourite recordings of Bartok's Third Piano Concerto and making a recommendation. (First broadcast on 29th February 2020)

Bartók composed the concerto in 1945 during the final months of his life, as a surprise birthday present for his second wife. It was one of the pieces he composed after departing Hungary following the outbreak of World War II. After a prolonged fight with leukaemia, an improvement in his health raised his spirits which might partly explain the piece's lighter almost neoclassical tone, compared to his earlier works.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m000kmyx)
Covid-19’s impact on singing and teaching

Tom Service talks to mezzo-soprano Dame Sarah Connolly about musical life world during lockdown, and her calls for more support and protection for the music industry, as well as clarity from science regarding the potential risk of spreading COVID-19 through singing and playing wind instruments. In search of answers about the latter, we also examine research investigating whether speech, singing and playing wind instruments does indeed spread this virus, and hear from two ENT specialists - both also musicians - Declan Costello in the UK and Adam Schwalje in the USA. Turning to the impact of the coronavirus on music education in the UK, Tom joins peripatetic teachers working for Hull Music Service to hear how music provision is faring as part of home schooling. He hears, too, how the UK's music colleges are responding, and their plans for the next academic year with Jonathan Freeman-Attwood of the Royal Academy of Music in London; Linda Merrick of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and Jeffrey Sharkey at Glasgow’s Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000kmyz)
Guitarist Sean Shibe with dance music, drones and a reconstructed Dresden manuscript

Guitarist Sean Shibe takes lockdown recording to new heights as he builds a studio underneath a fortepiano (that’s correct) and lines up a playlist that features drones, dance music and a reconstructed Dresden manuscript. The guitar makes an appearance with pieces by Bach, William Walton and Johann Kaspar Mertz, as well as some comforting music for the guitar’s cousin, the lute.

Plus, Smetana’s Ma Vlast transports Sean back to his teenage bedroom floor, and he reveals a weakness for ‘banger’ arias, pointing out that there is more than football to Puccini’s famous aria Nessun Dorma. And if you fancy a rave, there’s a track by the multi-talented piper, violinist, composer and producer, Martyn Bennett.

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

SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (m000kmz1)
John Williams - the scores you'd forgotten

John Williams is one of the most successful and most identifiable of all Hollywood composers, with the likes of Star Wars, Harry Potter, ET, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List to his credit. But what might the Williams legacy be had Steven Spielberg and George Lucas turned to other composers to write their scores? Matthew looks back over John Williams’ long career and celebrates his associations with the likes of Oliver Stone, Robert Altman, Irwin Allen and Alfred Hitchcock. The programme features music from ‘How To Steal A Million’, Lost In Space’, ‘Land Of The Giants’, ‘The Valley Of The Dolls’, ‘Images’, ‘The Long Goodbye’, ‘The Towering Inferno’, ‘Black Sunday’, ‘Family Plot’, ‘The Fury’, ‘Dracula’, ‘The Witches Of Eastwick’, ‘Home Alone’, ‘Memoirs Of A Geisha’, ‘The Book Thief’ and ‘Jane Eyre’.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b03nch13)
Richard Strauss: Elektra

Elektra by Richard Strauss, from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, conducted by Andris Nelsons. Christine Goerke sings the title role.

The Greek hero Agamemnon returns home from the Trojan War, only to be murdered by his wife Klytemnestra and her lover, Aegisthus. His daughter, Elektra, has become possessed by a desperate need to revenge her father and will not rest until she has done so. Strauss's music plunges the audience straight into this psychologically intense and violent world, and Charles Edwards's production highlights the moral decay at its heart.

Presented by Louise Fryer.

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m000kmz9)
Finnish blues

Saxophonist Jorma Tapio connects the traditions of shamanic songs and free jazz on his reinterpretation of the traditional songs from East Karelia. Originally a region of Finland, but now part of Russia, the area is famous for being populated by shamans, healers and players of the kantele, a Finnish stringed folk instrument that was a fundamental part of the local music scene for centuries.

Also in the show, the first album recorded by humans and produced by birds. Growing up in a musicians home, the non-human artist tandem that is Kakaduu (two parrots: Säuks and Präuks) became unique experts on music and were offered the opportunity to produce an album by the free improvising trio WIG. Plus, a mesmerising piece by the violin and double bass duo Vilde&Inga. Presented by Corey Mwamba.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (m000kmwv)
Sarah Walker with guest Marie-Louise Muir

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

Today Sarah finds the sounds of summer in music depicting gardens, rivers, lakes and birds, and enjoys the way that Claudio Monteverdi brought a certain earthiness into even the most sacred of his vocal pieces.

She also plays a bossa nova (with hints of JS Bach) from a group featuring singer Rosa Passos and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, plus a sparkling performance of Mozart’s celebrated ‘Paris’ symphony.

At 10.30am Sarah invites arts and music broadcaster Marie-Louise Muir to join her for the Sunday Morning monthly arts roundup, focussing on five cultural happenings that you can catch online during July.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000djf9)
William Sieghart

William Sieghart, the founder of the Forward Prizes for poetry and National Poetry Day, talks to Michael Berkeley about the music and poetry he loves.

Over the last twenty-five years National Poetry Day has become a popular fixture in the cultural calendar, and it was William’s idea to have permanent poems engraved at the Olympic Park in East London.

He’s also the creator of the hugely successful Poetry Pharmacy. At festivals and events, William sits in a tent and people bring him their dilemmas, problems and sadnesses - and he ‘prescribes’ them a poem to console, comfort or encourage. The Poetry Pharmacy has spread to Radio 4, television and hugely successful poetry anthologies, described by Stephen Fry as ‘a matchless compound of hug, tonic and kiss’.

William chooses music by Schubert and by Mendelssohn that reminds him of his father, who fled Vienna just before the Second World War, and he talks movingly about the effect of his father’s immigrant experience on his own life.

He describes how poetry and, later, music, helped him through his distress at being sent to boarding school at the age of eight and chooses recordings of music by Bach and by Debussy that have remained vital to him ever since.

And in the spirit of the Poetry Pharmacy, he reveals the poetry and music he turns to for comfort in a crisis.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0005gsk)
What's the point of practice?

Does practice make perfect? And what is perfect practice? Tom Service asks whether anyone can become a good musician by just putting in the hours. Pianist James Rhodes talks about the role practice plays in his life, and Professor Brooke Macnamara reveals the true role practice plays in performance.

Rest and Respite

This is a moment of pause and peace. Even with the cosmic stop-button pushed by the pandemic and global lockdown, it can still seem that the world is obsessed with speed: hyperactive work patterns, immediate information transfer, group video conferencing, a psychological drive towards ever-increasing productivity, more and more of everything all at once.

Slowing things down for a short while, David Ajao and Florence Roberts read sedentary and still poetry, where resting is a human right, a spiritual act, a conversation with nature, a rebellion and resistance, a naughty break from normality. Meanwhile, musical evocations of rest and repose come from Jacques Ibert, Meredith Monk, Henry Purcell, and William Walton.

If you need permission to let your body and mind recover and rejuvenate, rest here a while ...

Afterwords: Toni Morrison

Reflections on the American writer Toni Morrison, who died in 2019, through her own words and those of her peers.

The words of the author Toni Morrison, whose work received the Nobel Prize and many other awards, take us on a journey that spans her literary career and the black American story. Through a selection of Morrison's interviews for BBC outlets, spanning her entire career, Morrison is placed in dialogue with contemporary thinkers, writers and activists - as well as with readings from her work. Afterwords outlines the events that shaped her powerful command of language and the great visionary force through which she chronicled the black American experience.

With contributions from writers, historians and curators, including Jay Bernard, Nydia Sawby, Ifeanyi Awachie, Dana Williams and Morrison's friend, Professor Farah Jasmine Griffin.

Jump Blue

On 2 August 2015, the great Russian freediver Natalia Molchanova disappeared in Spanish territorial waters. Through sound, text and music, “Jump Blue” takes us to extraordinary depths in this immersive re-imagining of her final descent.

Apnea, or freediving without breathing apparatus, requires the few who practise it to encounter a profound stillness as their heart rate slows and their lungs contract. In the darkness of the abyss, on a single breath, they truly meet themselves. In Hannah Silva’s lyrical text, voiced by actress Fiona Shaw, memory and sensation fragment and intertwine in shifting layers of consciousness.

"Jump Blue" is based on extensive interviews with many of the world’s leading freedivers, including Natalia Molchanova's son Alexey.

Freediver ..... Fiona Shaw

Three Letters

THREE LETTERS, written and performed by Nell Leyshon
'I am trying to remember the young woman that I was before I had children. I am trying to see who I am now… I am a writer and I have a splinter of ice in my heart and in my eye.'
Nell Leyshon performs her own true story of how her reinvention of herself after children is halted by illness. It is a story of the body, medicine, statistics and the NHS; a story of motherhood and being a woman; a story of writing and of speaking with our own authentic voices.

Three letters was written and performed by Nell Leyshon and directed in Edinburgh by Susan Roberts.

Holmes and Duparc

A tale of two composers

Donald Macleod and Anastasia Belina explore the lives and music of Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc, beginning with their early years, and including Duparc's L'invitation au voyage and a symphony by Holmès, which was specially recorded by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Imagine creating a grand spectacle that demands 1,200 performers, along with the most lavish sets and costumes. You might think that the figure behind such an extraordinary achievement would have staked a claim on immortality, yet despite achieving considerable fame in her own lifetime, this is not the fate that befell Augusta Holmès. Over the passage of time her name has disappeared into obscurity, whilst that of her direct contemporary, Henri Duparc has grown and prospered. These days he’s regarded as one of the leading figures of French song, yet it’s still the case that relatively little is known about his life.

In Duparc’s case his is a reputation built on the slenderest of musical means, some seventeen mélodies. By contrast, Holmès’s Ode triomphale, which was written to mark the centenary of France’s 1789 revolution, is the largest of a generous collection of large-scale orchestral works, to which you can also add four operas, the last of which was mounted at the Paris Opera in 1895, as well as considerable catalogue of songs.

To shed light on Holmès's music, several of her works have been recorded by the BBC Performing Groups, as part of the Forgotten Women Composers project, which was developed by the BBC in association with the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Helping Donald Macleod uncover more about the little-known Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc, is Anastasia Belina, a music historian with a particular interest in 19th-century music and women composers.

Holmès’s musical aspirations didn’t get off to a flying start, as her mother, who was a painter, held an aversion to music, while Duparc’s family saw their son’s eventual future in Law.

New Generation Thinkers 2020

Dam Fever and The Diaspora

New Generation Thinker Majed Akhter explores how large dam projects continue to form reservoirs of hope for a sustainable future. Despite their known drawbacks, our love affair with dams has not abated – across the world more than 3,500 dams are in various stages of construction. In Pakistan this has become entwined with nationalism, both inside the community and in the diaspora - but what are the dangers of this “dam fever” ? This Essay traces the history of river development in the region, from the early twentieth century “canal colonies” in Punjab, to Cold War mega-projects, to the contemporary drive to build large new dams. Previously an engineer and a resource economist, Majed Akhter now lectures in geography at King’s College London. you can hear him discussing the politics of rivers in a Free Thinking episode called Rivers and geopolitics https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00051hb

Holmes and Duparc

A composer in the making

Donald Macleod and Anastasia Belina consider how Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc’s musical trajectories led them to study with Cèsar Franck.

Donald Macleod and Anastasia Belina consider howAugusta Holmès and Henri Duparc’s contrasting musical trajectories led them to study with Cèsar Franck, including the story behind Duparc’s rescued cello sonata.

Imagine creating a grand spectacle that demands 1,200 performers, along with the most lavish sets and costumes. You might think that the figure behind such an extraordinary achievement would have staked a claim on immortality, yet despite achieving considerable fame in her own lifetime, this is not the fate that befell Augusta Holmès. Over the passage of time her name has disappeared into obscurity, whilst that of her direct contemporary, Henri Duparc has grown and prospered. These days he’s regarded as one of the leading figures of French song, yet it’s still the case that relatively little is known about his life.

In Duparc’s case his is a reputation built on the slenderest of musical means, some seventeen mélodies. By contrast, Holmès’s Ode triomphale, which was written to mark the centenary of France’s 1789 revolution, is the largest of a generous collection of large-scale orchestral works, to which you can add four operas, the last of which was mounted at the Paris Opera in 1895, as well as considerable catalogue of songs.

To shed light on Holmès's music, several of her works, including one of her symphonies, have been specially recorded by the BBC Performing Groups, as part of the Forgotten Women Composers project, which was developed by the BBC in association with the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Helping Donald Macleod uncover more about the little-known Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc, is Anastasia Belina, a researcher with a particular interest in 19th-century music and women composers.

Duparc was a perfectionist, who was often driven to destroy his compositions. Today, a chance to hear his only surviving chamber work, a cello sonata.

New Generation Thinkers 2020

Facing Facts

Earlier periods of history have seen more people with scarring to their faces from duelling injuries and infectious diseases but what stopped this leading to a greater tolerance of facial difference? Historian Emily Cock considers the case of the Puritan William Prynne and looks at a range of strategies people used to improve their looks from eye patches to buying replacement teeth from the mouths of the poor, whose low-sugar diets kept their dentures better preserved than their aristocratic neighbours. In portraits and medical histories she finds examples of the elision between beauty and morality. With techniques such as ‘Metoposcopy’, which focused on interpreting the wrinkles on your forehead and the fact that enacting the law led to deliberate cut marks being made - this Essay reflects on the difficult terrain of judging by appearance.

Emily Cock is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the University of Cardiff working on a project looking at Disfigurement in Britain and its Colonies 1600 – 1850.
You can hear her discussing her research with Fay Alberti, who works on facial transplants, in a New Thinking podcast episode of the Arts & Ideas podcast called About Face https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p080p2bc

Holmes and Duparc

A time of conflict

Donald Macleod and Anastasia Belina look at how Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc fared during the Siege of Paris in 1870.

Imagine creating a grand spectacle that demands 1,200 performers, along with the most lavish sets and costumes. You might think that the figure behind such an extraordinary achievement would have staked a claim on immortality, yet despite achieving considerable fame in her own lifetime, this is not the fate that befell Augusta Holmès. Over the passage of time her name has disappeared into obscurity, whilst that of her direct contemporary, Henri Duparc has grown and prospered. These days he’s regarded as one of the leading figures of French song, yet it’s still the case that relatively little is known about his life.

In Duparc’s case his is a reputation built on the slenderest of musical means, some seventeen mélodies. By contrast, Holmès’s Ode triomphale, which was written to mark the centenary of France’s 1789 revolution, is the largest of a generous collection of large scale orchestral works, to which you can also add four operas, the last of which was mounted at the Paris Opera in 1895, as well as considerable catalogue of songs.

To shed light on Holmès's music, several of her works, including one of her symphonies, have been specially recorded by the BBC Performing Groups, as part of the Forgotten Women Composers project, which was developed by the BBC in association with the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Helping Donald Macleod uncover more about the little-known Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc, is Anastasia Belina, a researcher with a particular interest in 19th-century music and women composers.

Holmès and Duparc both contributed to the war effort, as a nurse, and as a member of the 18th Battalion. Yet despite the exigencies of their situation, music-making was still possible.

Vilabertran Festival 2/4

Sarah Walker presents a performance of Schubert's final song-cycle, Schwanengesang or ‘Swan-Song’, given at last year's Vilabertran Festival by rising star baritone Andrè Schuen with pianist Daniel Heide.

The cycle was published after Schubert's death and it was publisher rather than composer who decided upon the marketable nickname. The cycle sets poems by three contemporary writers - Rellstab, Heine and Seidl - and the tone of the cycle overall is more varied than the name would have us believe.

Holmes and Duparc

France’s muse

Donald Macleod and Anastasia Belina consider the cultural outlets Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc used to disseminate their ideas and music, with a rare chamber work by Holmès, specially recorded for the series by the BBC Singers, and Duparc's timeless song, Phidylé.

Imagine creating a grand spectacle that demands 1,200 performers, along with the most lavish sets and costumes. You might think that the figure behind such an extraordinary achievement would have staked a claim on immortality, yet despite achieving considerable fame in her own lifetime, this is not the fate that befell Augusta Holmès. Over the passage of time her name has disappeared into obscurity, whilst that of her direct contemporary, Henri Duparc has grown and prospered. These days he’s regarded as one of the leading figures of French song, yet it’s still the case that relatively little is known about his life.

In Duparc’s case his is a reputation built on the slenderest of musical means, some seventeen mélodies. By contrast, Holmès’s Ode triomphale, which was written to mark the centenary of France’s 1789 revolution, is the largest of a generous collection of large-scale orchestral works, to which you can also add four operas, the last of which was mounted at the Paris Opera in 1895, as well as considerable catalogue of songs.

To shed light on Holmès's music, several of her works, including one of her symphonies, have been specially recorded by the BBC Performing Groups, as part of the Forgotten Women Composers project, which was developed by the BBC in association with the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Helping Donald Macleod uncover more about the little-known Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc, is Anastasia Belina, a researcher with a particular interest in 19th-century music and women composers.

A celebrated figure by the 1880s, Holmès held a weekly salon of her own where she was able to present her own music, while Duparc was a prominent attendee at the most exclusive musical soirées in Paris.

Vilabertran Festival 3/4

Sarah Walker introduces string quartets by Mozart and Shostakovich, written some two hundred years apart, part of a concert given by the Casals Quartet at last year's Vilabertran Festival.

Mozart's wasn't responsible for the nickname given to his B flat quartet, this comes from a general feeling of vigour and the outdoors in its first movement. Shostakovich's eighth quartet has no such bounciness, rather a sombre intensity made all the more personal by the composer's use of a theme made up of his own initials: DSCH (in German notation D - E flat - C - B).

Opera Matinee: Rossini's The Barber of Seville

A barber who never cuts any hair and a young woman in lockdown - an opera for our times? Georgia Mann presents Rossini's comic masterpiece from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Figaro the barber helps Count Almaviva to spring his rich and sassy lover Rosina from the clutches of her guardian Dr Bartolo - through various implausible disguises and many close shaves. The sheer humour and energy of Rossini's opera soon made it a popular favourite: even Beethoven is supposed to have told Rossini "Be sure to write more Barbers!" But there's an underlying poignancy too - especially if you know Mozart's sequel, The Marriage of Figaro, where Almaviva is already tired of Rosina and chasing Figaro's fiancee Susanna.

BBC Philharmonic
Andrei Ionită (cello)
John Storgards (conductor)

Having fled across the Atlantic to escape Nazi Europe, Martinů marked the defeat of his persecutors in 1945 with his Fourth Symphony. In this joyous and powerful work, we hear military sounds but also snatches of Czech folk song. The following year, in Los Angeles, Stravinsky finished his ballet 'Orpheus' which received its premiere in New York in 1948, with choreography by Balanchine, The music is translucent, lyrical and restrained; the dreadful moment when Orpheus turns back to see Eurydice is powerfully marked - by silence. Andrei Ionită joins the orchestra for another work which marks the loss of a loved-one: fifty years before Stravinsky and Martinů made America their home, a home-sick Dvořák was teaching in New York, and his Cello Concerto is infused with a powerful longing for his homeland, and for his sister-in-law, Josefina. She had a particular fondness for one of his songs which appears in the slow movement. When she died a few years later, he revised the Concerto in homage to her.

Holmes and Duparc

When the music stops

Donald Macleod and Anastasia Belina reflect on the very different characters of Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc with music including Duparc’s La vie antérieure.

Imagine creating a grand spectacle that demands 1,200 performers, along with the most lavish sets and costumes. You might think that the figure behind such an extraordinary achievement would have staked a claim on immortality, yet despite achieving considerable fame in her own lifetime, this is not the fate that befell Augusta Holmès. Over the passage of time her name has disappeared into obscurity, whilst that of her direct contemporary, Henri Duparc has grown and prospered. These days he’s regarded as one of the leading figures of French song, yet it’s still the case that relatively little is known about his life.

In Duparc’s case his is a reputation built on the slenderest of musical means, some seventeen mélodies. By contrast, Holmès’s Ode triomphale, which was written to mark the centenary of France’s 1789 revolution, is the largest of a generous collection of large-scale orchestral works, to which you can also add four operas, the last of which was mounted at the Paris Opera in 1895, as well as considerable catalogue of songs.

To shed light on Holmès's music, several of her works, including one of her symphonies, have been specially recorded by the BBC Performing Groups, as part of the Forgotten Women Composers project, a collaboration with the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Helping Donald Macleod uncover more about the little-known Augusta Holmès and Henri Duparc, is Anastasia Belina, a researcher with a particular interest in19th-century music and women composers.

The failure of her opera La montagne noire was a huge disappointment to Holmès but it did not prevent her from working on new projects. Duparc’s creative life came to an abrupt end through the re-appearance of a debilitating illness but despite a long compositional silence, his songs continued to find new audiences.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m000kpyq)
Vilabertran Festival 4/4

Sarah Walker introduces part of a concert given at last year's Vilabertran Festival by rising star Catalan pianist Eudald Buch.

Bach's G major French Suite is one of six the composer wrote in what musicians of the time described as "the French style" - in common with much of this week's music, the nickname was more to do with convenience and marketing than anything the composer wished to say about them. Buch contrasts this with Schubert's great C minor piano sonata, one of the trilogy the composer wrote at the end of his life to form one of the great pinnacles of the instrument's repertoire.

Sinfonia Cymru and Sheku Kanneh-Mason

Sinfonia Cymru match their trademark sparkle to a programme of works that themselves fizz with confidence, drama and vitality. They are joined by young cello star, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, fresh from his Royal Wedding performance and chart-topping debut album, to perform Haydn’s First Cello Concerto. Later in the programme, composer Charles Ives attempts nothing less than solving the riddle of life, the universe, and everything, in his extraordinary six-minute piece, The Unanswered Question. Their concert begins with CPE Bach, whose music is daring and brimming with passion, and they finish with Beethoven’s musical announcement to the world that he might just be the greatest symphonist of all time.

Another chance to hear this concert recorded in March 2019 at the Riverfront, Newport. Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m000kpz3)
New Generation Thinkers 2020

Prison Break

Prison breaks loom large in both literature and pop culture. But how should we evaluate them ethically? New Generation Thinker Jeffrey Howard asks what a world without prison would look like. His essay explores whether those unjustly incarcerated have the moral right to break out, whether the rest of us have an obligation to help -- and what the answers teach us about the ethics of punishment today. Jeffrey Howard is an Associate Professor in the Political Science Dept at University College, London whose work on dangerous speech has been funded by the British Academy and the Leverhulme Trust. You can find him discussing hate speech in a Free Thinking Episode https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0006tnf

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select ten academics who can turn their research into radio.

Producer: Luke Mulhall


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000kpz5)
Space is the Place

Jennifer Lucy Allan travels the spaceways for a Late Junction special on science fiction, with jazz flautist Nicole Mitchell. Mitchell leads the rotating cast of the eclectic Black Earth Ensemble, and is former chairperson of Chicago musicians collective the AACM (Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians). She joins us to select music and discuss the work of science fiction writer Octavia Butler who has been deeply influential on her work. Butler’s visions of time travel, inter-species relationships and an unravelling America, propose radical spaces where social relations can be reimagined and Afrofuturist utopias can take root.

Elsewhere we’ll hear other artists who have been exploring alternative futures. Expect dub legend Scientist meeting the space invaders, Stockhausen’s flying saucer operas, Ursula Le Guin’s imagined languages, and Detroit techno duo Drexciya’s sub-aquatic Black Atlantic society.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
