9.30am Building a Library – Jan Smaczny on Dvořák’s Symphony No. 7 in D minor, Op. 70

Possibly Dvořák's greatest symphony, he started work on the piece in 1884. After hearing Brahms's new Third Symphony, he was inspired to write a new symphony himself. He said that during his regular stroll to Prague railway station, "the first subject of my new symphony flashed in to my mind on the arrival of the festive train bringing our countrymen from Pest". The Czechs were in fact arriving for a musical celebration of the Czech nation. He decided that his new work would celebrate his patriotism and desire to see the Czech nation flourish.

Messages of hope...

Tom Service talks to the American composers Michael Gordon and Julia Wolfe about Bang on a Can’s live-streamed music marathon, the nine works receiving their world premiere over the course of the event, and how the project explores artistic responses in times of crisis. We’re joined by composer Tania León and flautist and composer Nathalie Joachim, two musicians taking part in this marathon, who reflect on what it means to be an artist in America today and how this COVID-19 watershed can be a catalyst to help reshape things to come. As the school year starts, we've an update from James Dickinson, Head of Hull Music Hub and Chair of The UK Association for Music Education, about how are schools in England coping with music tuition after the coronavirus. We also hear another instalment from our ‘musicians in our time’ series with the violinist Rakhi Singh.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000nm1t)
Trombonist Amos Miller on the importance of fun in music

Amos Miller combines his role as head of brass at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with the post of principal trombone with the orchestra of Birmingham Royal Ballet and founder member of the acclaimed quintet Onyx Brass.

Fun is at the heart of many of his choices today, including a piece by Danny Kaye that made him cry with laughter as a child, and an arrangement of a piece by Bessie Smith that he’d like to play to aliens. Amos also reveals when Tchaikovsky finally got orchestration right, and tells us why he is still inspired by the 81-year-old Vladimir Horowitz’s comeback concert in Moscow.

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

Royal Opera Chorus
Orchestra of the Royal Opera House
Conducted by Antonio Pappano

Written for the Paris Opera in 1855, Verdi adopted the elaborate styles and traditions of French Grand opera in Les Vêpres Siciliennes. It is a tale of family relationships, loyalty, patriotism and revenge.

Based on a story set in 1282, Sicily has been invaded by the French, and the Duchess Hélène (sung by soprano Lianna Haroutounian) is being held hostage by Montfort (baritone Michael Volle), the French governor. Hélène reveals that her brother was executed by Montfort and she is seeking revenge, and is assured by Henri (tenor Bryan Hymel) how deeply he despises Montfort, although he does not realise that he is Montfort's son. Procida (bass Erwin Schrott) is a Sicilian, also seeking revenge after the French attack, and he involves Henri and Hélène in a plot to assassinate Montfort. However, once he knows he is Montfort's son, Henri is torn between his love for Hélène and his loyalty to his father and country, and ultimately this predicament leads to everybody losing everything.

SUN 12:00 The Early Music Show (m000nkzf)
Latin America’s turbulent Colonial history told through its music

Hannah French presents a programme of music and discussion exploring the turbulent history of Latin America through its sacred and secular music from the 16th to 18th centuries.

1200
Hannah French introduces us to some of the sounds of Latin American Baroque, alongside her studio guests - Peruvian historian Dr Gabriela Ramos, and musicologist Leonardo Waisman.

1205 CONQUISTADORS, COLONISATION, GENOCIDE & GOLD
An exploration of the arrival of the Europeans and how they were first received in the Americas. It’s thought that during the initial Spanish and Portuguese conquest, up to 8 million indigenous people died, mainly through the spread of disease and slavery. In 1520 Hernán Cortés led an expedition that caused the fall of the Aztec Empire, beginning the steady but ruthless colonisation of the Americas.

1220 ANCIENT TRADITIONS
Music archaeologists Matthias Stöckli and Alexander Herrera tell us about their research into the ancient musical traditions of the Mayan Highlands and of the Andes.

1230 THE JESUITS
The Jesuits arrived in the region in the mid-16th century. They evangelised the indigenous people, built mission towns, schools and churches and acted as diplomats between the colonialists and the local population. Much of the evangelising involved music and, over time, indigenous instruments mixed with European instruments to form some of the sounds we know today.

1240 ARAKAENDER BOLIVIA
Ashley Solomon talks about a project that he has been involved with since the early 2000s. Working with the biennial Festivals Misiones de Chiquitos, he has helped to set up a national choir and ensemble: Arakaender - Bolivia’s first baroque orchestra on period instruments.

1300 LANGUAGE
Dr Alice Corr reflects on the cross-pollination of language from and to Latin America.

1310 VILLANCICOS
The villancico was a secular genre until religious villancicos gained popularity in the second half of the 16thC in Spain and Latin America. The texts were didactic, designed to help converts understand and enjoy the new religion.

1325 SLAVE TRADE
Professor David Treece tells us about the beginnings of the slave trade in colonial Latin America and the cultural influence it had on the population. Over 350 years, more than 10m Africans were taken by force to the region and made to work in mines or on plantations. The rhythms they brought with them became the single most important part of Latin American music. Exchanges of dances and songs formed the roots of Lundu, Candombe & Samba.

1340 CAPOEIRA
Here we find out about another centuries-old practice from Brazil: Capoeira - a combination of martial arts, dance & music, originally conceived in plantations by enslaved Africans to defend themselves from their Portuguese masters.

1350 SANTERIA
The mesmerising appeal of Cuban music is due in part to Santería - a religion blending traditional Yoruba rituals, deities and the sacred batá drums brought by slaves, with beliefs from Roman Catholicism. Much Latin music we know today - mambo, cha-cha-chá and salsa - has its roots in this potent amalgamation. Crispin Robinson, a Santería practitioner himself, tells us about its ancient roots, along with his Cuban spiritual guide, who sings for us some of the melodies kept alive across time.

1400 PUEBLA CATHEDRAL
100km south-east of Mexico City lies Puebla, a UNESCO world heritage site enclosed in a dramatic volcanic basin. In its colonial central square stands a magnificent cathedral - a physical embodiment of the Baroque with its bell towers, 14 chapels and sublime interior. Ireri E. Chávez-Bárcenas , Drew Edward Davies & Andrew Cashner explore the Cathedral’s place in the historical landscape and its 17th century musicians.

1425 CODEX TRUJILLO
A unique snapshot of late-18th-century Peru, almost unparalleled in the history of Latin America, the so-called Codex Trujillo is in nine volumes, contains 20 musical scores and around 1,400 watercolours, including images of musicians in action - some of indigenous extraction, some of African descent. We hear from three ensembles who’ve recorded the music about the challenges posed by this repertoire and the contrasting ways in which they’ve approached it in an attempt to bring its amazing soundscape back to life.

1450 LATIN AMERICAN FOOD
Food writer Sandra A. Gutierrez explains how certain indigenous Latin American ingredients introduced to Europe in the 15th century have shaped the way we eat today globally. But the culinary exchange went both ways.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000nkzk)
Latin America: It Takes Two

What is it about the Tango that has enabled it to transcend its origins in the late 19th-century slums of Buenos Aires to become one of most popular dances in the world's glittering ballrooms and beloved of gymnasts, figure skaters and synchronized swimmers? How did Tango escape the sparkle of the glitter ball and the borders of Argentina to be taken seriously as art music?

It may take two to Tango but there's a trio here to tease out the complex, multiple strands of this beguiling dance, as Tom Service is joined by Tango historian John Turci-Escobar and Buenos Aires-born Tango dancer Carla Dominguez. Part of Radio 3’s focus on the music, history and culture of Latin America.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000nkzm)
Latin America: Spears, Jaguars and Eagles

The Spanish colonisation of the Americas depicted in poems and journals by the Aztecs, Incas and other indigenous peoples, and in the writings of the invading European Conquistadors. Spanish actor Enrique Arce (Money Heist) reads from accounts of Bernal Díaz del Castillo, a soldier who participated in the 1521 conquest of Mexico, Bartolomé de las Casas, a Dominican Friar who documented the atrocities committed against the native communities, and Garcilaso de la Vega, son of a Spanish conquistador and an Inca noblewoman born in the early years of the conquest. Brazilian born actress Thalissa Teixeira (Two Weeks to Live) reads poems and perspectives from the Acolhua philosopher Nezahualcoyotl, Nahua writer Chimalpahin, and other first hand sources documented in Camilla Townsend's acclaimed new history of the Aztecs, Fifth Sun. Alongside Spanish Baroque there's music by Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela, Bolivian singer and champion of indigenous rights Luzmila Carpio, who sings in the Andean Quechua language, and the Afro-Colombian group Sexteto Tabalá.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m000nkzp)
The Rising Sea Symphony

The dramatic effects of climate change evoked in words, sounds and a powerful new musical work.

Over four movements of rich and evocative music, the listener is transported to the front line of the climate crisis, with stories from coastal Ghana – where entire villages are being swept away by the rising sea – to Norway’s Svalbard archipelago in the high arctic where the ice is melting with alarming speed. The dramatic final movement ponders two contrasting possible outcomes to the crisis.

In this ambitious new commission for BBC Radio 3, Kieran Brunt weaves together electronic, vocal and orchestral elements recorded in isolation by players from the BBC Philharmonic. Each musician recorded their part individually at home and these recordings were then painstakingly combined by sound engineer Donald MacDonald to create a symphonic sound.

Documentary producer Laurence Grissell and composer Kieran Brunt have collaborated to produce an ambitious and original evocation of the causes and consequences of rising, warming oceans.

Composer: Kieran Brunt

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m000nkzr)
New Generation Thinkers: Short Feature - COVID and the Black Death; the imperfect fit

It's understandable that, with the onset of a global pandemic, commentators have looked to the past for comparisons. But Dr Seb Falk is concerned that with the easy headlines about the mortality rate or the economic damage, or even the positive transformations inspired by plagues of the past and particularly in his field, the Black Death of the medieval period, more subtle comparisons emerging from exciting new Plague research are being overlooked. He hears from Dr Monica Green, a leading authority on the true origins and journey of the Black Death and finds, in her use of palaeogenetic research, refinements about the plague and its impact on those who lived with it. And he talks to Dr Zoë Fritz, consultant physician and Wellcome Fellow in Society and Ethics at the University of Cambridge, about the human responses beyond the science today that echo the experiences of our ancestors centuries ago. Rather than mortality rates and economic trauma, the more profound links might be the twin challenges of uncertainty and impotence and the human desire to overcome or deny both.

SUN 23:00 Transcribe, Transform with Vikingur Olafsson (m000nkzw)
Expand and Contract

Pianist Víkingur Ólafsson approaches music without preconceptions; as he puts it, “Every note we play anywhere, anytime, is a reinterpretation, a transcription.”

In this second episode, Víkingur finds huge pieces reduced to small forces and vice versa as he explores the maximal and the minimal in arrangements. A grand baroque masterpiece is transformed into something very different by a jazz quartet, while a piano score is given the rock ’n roll treatment. There’ll also be symphonic grandeur by Gustav Mahler transcribed for the organ, plus piano music by Schubert that Víkingur actually prefers in the orchestral transcription made by the violinist Joseph Joachim.

MON 00:00 Sounds Connected (m000nkzy)
Part 5: Yshani Perinpanayagam

Yshani Perinpanayagam tracks the connections between five pieces from a range of musical genres and eras.

A new voice to BBC Radio 3, Yshani is a composer, pianist and music director.

"I was never really introduced to music in terms of genres or categories. When I was very little, my dad made me a mix tape which I remember had Mozart, Teddy Bear's Picnic and Bohemian Rhapsody in a row. So, Sounds Connected really is my ideal playtime - a gallivant across the entire canon, stretching my leaping legs as far as I can. I love the places to which lateral thinking can take you, leading you to new discoveries, or pointing a new angle-poise at the very familiar."

The starting point for Yshani's journey in this episode is a romantic piano piece by Fanny Mendelssohn.

This programme contains racial language within a historical context.

Beethoven Unleashed: Piano Sonatas

The Newcomer

Pianist Angela Hewitt shares her knowledge of Beethoven’s opus 2 trilogy of piano sonatas with Donald Macleod.

As part of Composer of the Week's year-long focus on Beethoven, this week the world-renowned pianist Angela Hewitt chooses five contrasting aspects of the piano sonatas to discuss with Donald Macleod. In 2020, Hewitt reaches the end of her survey of Beethoven’s piano works with the last recording in her acclaimed series of his 32 piano sonatas. Begun in 2005, her Beethoven odyssey has been taken at a deliberately measured pace, to give ample space and time to reflect on each sonata, each recording being a testament to her deep understanding of Beethoven. Well known for her award-winning interpretation of Bach’s music, she brings that special insight to Beethoven’s profound admiration for the composer, after which she explores the humour Beethoven injects into his music, the composer’s ability to write cantabile or singing style and how Beethoven responded to the advancement of the piano.

Angela Hewitt and Donald Macleod begin today with a look at the piano sonatas a young Beethoven wrote, freshly arrived in Vienna, starting with his opus 2 trilogy.

Black Legacies: Chineke! Orchestra with Jeneba Kanneh-Mason at Royal Festival Hall

Presented by Georgia Mann

Chineke! Orchestra performs contemporary and classical works, conducted by Kevin John Edusei.
London-born Samuel Coleridge-Taylor often made reference to his Sierra Leonean ancestry in his music. His African Suite imagines the energy and vitality of the continent he dreamed of visiting, using the vocabulary of his European classical training.

As the first African-American woman to have her work performed by a major American orchestra, Florence B. Price enjoyed widespread acclaim during her heyday in the 1930s and 1940s. The Piano Concerto in One Movement is a new edition of the composer’s original 1934 orchestration, and we're delighted that Jeneba Kanneh-Mason will make her debut solo performance with Chineke!.

Chineke! also presents the world premiere of James B. Wilson’s latest commission, a collaboration with poet Yomi Sode. The work is inspired by a seminal moment in the recent Black Lives Matter protests in the UK.

Beethoven’s celebrated Fifth Symphony opens with the ominous notes of ‘fate knocking at the door’, marking Chineke!’s final nod to the composer in his 250th anniversary year.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m000nmpx)
Africa in the City

Marseille

Writer and broadcaster Lindsay Johns introduces his new series of essays on five great cities which have been influenced by African migration, as he discusses Marseille.

Looking for inspiration to Ian Fleming's 'Thrilling Cities', Lindsay wants to eschew the loud, brash main avenues and explore instead the quiet back alleys, abandoning tourist sites in favour of lesser known, more local and edgier haunts. But he also wants to ditch the colonial mindset always looking for European influence, and instead examine how these cities have been affected by migration from Africa.

And in Marseille, the first of his five, Lindsay finds it all: a truly Franco-African metropolis, infused with gastronomic, religious, linguistic, musical, sartorial and literary influences from the other side of the Mediterranean.

Producer: Giles Edwards

Beethoven Unleashed: Piano Sonatas

Beethoven and the Influence of JS Bach

Donald Macleod and pianist Angela Hewitt explore Beethoven's admiration for J.S. Bach and how his study of Bach's music informed his piano sonatas, including the Pathétique.

As part of Composer of the Week's year-long focus on Beethoven, this week the world-renowned pianist Angela Hewitt chooses five contrasting aspects of the piano sonatas to discuss with Donald Macleod. In 2020, Hewitt reaches the end of her survey of Beethoven’s piano works with the last recording in her acclaimed series of his 32 piano sonatas. Begun in 2005, her Beethoven odyssey has been taken at a deliberately measured pace, to give ample space and time to reflect on each sonata, each recording being a testament to her deep understanding of Beethoven. Well known for her award-winning interpretation of Bach’s music, she brings that special insight to Beethoven’s profound admiration for the composer, after which she explores the humour Beethoven injects into his music, the composer’s ability to write cantabile or singing style and how Beethoven responded to the advancement of the piano.

Today Angela Hewitt and Donald Macleod discuss the elements in Beethoven's writing for the piano, which reflect his study of Bach.

After the interval Williams joins soprano Rowan Pierce for Apollo e Dafne. In Handel's poignant and seductive setting of the tale from Ovid's Metamorphoses, passion and desire are succeeded by regret and penitence as Daphne fights off Apollo's insatiable lust and finds escape by transforming herself into a laurel tree, its branches forever watered by Apollo's remorseful tears.

Introduced live from the Royal Festival Hall by Martin Handley.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000nlx8)
Africa in the City

Philadelphia

In the second of his essays on great cities which have been influenced by African migration, writer and broadcaster Lindsay Johns takes a walk around Philadelphia.

It's a city whose history is tied up with notions of America and of freedom, and as he wanders the streets of Philadelphia, Lindsay ponders the relationship between these two powerful ideas. They're not always easy to reconcile in Philadelphia - where the chronic racialised street homeless situation, the city’s poverty and stark racial divide leave him feeling a distinct lack of 'Brotherly Love' - in a city which takes that as its moniker. As Lindsay considers some of the philosophical questions which arise, he also reflects upon a community of African migrants making their home in the city with its own fascinating and surprising relationship with Philadelphia.

Producer: Giles Edwards.

Beethoven Unleashed: Piano Sonatas

The Art of Cantabile

Donald Macleod and pianist Angela Hewitt celebrate Beethoven's ability to write expressive music, in the singing or cantabile style, with music including piano sonata no 27 in E minor and piano sonata no 28 in A major.

As part of Composer of the Week's year-long focus on Beethoven, this week the world-renowned pianist Angela Hewitt chooses five contrasting aspects of the piano sonatas to discuss with Donald Macleod. In 2020, Hewitt reaches the end of her survey of Beethoven’s piano works with the last recording in her acclaimed series of his 32 piano sonatas. Begun in 2005, her Beethoven odyssey has been taken at a deliberately measured pace, to give ample space and time to reflect on each sonata, each recording being a testament to her deep understanding of Beethoven.

In today's conversation Angela Hewitt and Donald Macleod turn to the quieter moments in Beethoven's music, an area which Hewitt feels tends to be neglected in favour of the composer's heroic style.

Changing Times: Vivaldi, Schubert, Larcher and Reger

As part of Southbank Centre’s Inside Out season, Thierry Fischer conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in a programme of music from Europe spanning three centuries. They begin in the splendour of Vivaldi's Venice, before moving to Austria in 1814, when Europe enjoyed a fragile peace, and the teenage Schubert set to work on his joyful Second Symphony. A century later in 1914, Europe stood on the brink again, and the German composer Max Reger looked back to Mozart for inspiration. Most recently, a century on from Reger, the contemporary Austrian composer Thomas Larcher turned to a myth of renewal in his 2014 cello concerto Ourobouros - the ancient image of a snake eating its own tail as symbol of infinity.

Presented by Martin Handley, live from the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre.

Africa in the City

Kingston

Writer and broadcaster Lindsay Johns continues his series of essays examining five great world cities through the prism of their relationship with Africa. In the Jamaican capital, Kingston, this different lens leads to a focus not on pristine beaches, sunshine and cricket, but instead on rebellion and spirituality.

Lindsay considers Jamaica's history, intimately inter-woven with the tragedies, iniquities and horror of slavery; but also one defined by those who have refused to accept that status quo, from Queen Nanny to Marcus Garvey. And as he walks the city's streets, from downtown to New Kingston, where Jamaica's thriving community of entrepreneurs, business people and scientists is based, he ponders Kingston's spiritual connections with East Africa - and Ethiopia - and how profoundly they have affected the city.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000nmx1)
Beethoven Unleashed: Piano Sonatas

Beethoven and Humour

Pianist Angela Hewitt joins Donald Macleod to discuss the humour to be found and enjoyed in Beethoven's piano music, with some of Hewitt's favourite examples, including his Sonata No 18 in E flat major.

As part of Composer of the Week's year-long focus on Beethoven, this week the world-renowned pianist Angela Hewitt chooses five contrasting aspects of the piano sonatas to discuss with Donald Macleod. In 2020, Hewitt reaches the end of her survey of Beethoven’s piano works with the last recording in her acclaimed series of his 32 piano sonatas. Begun in 2005, her Beethoven odyssey has been taken at a deliberately measured pace, to give ample space and time to reflect on each sonata, each recording being a testament to her deep understanding of Beethoven. Well known for her award-winning interpretation of Bach’s music, she brings that special insight to Beethoven’s profound admiration for the composer, after which she explores the humour Beethoven injects into his music, the composer’s ability to write cantabile or singing style and how Beethoven responded to the advancement of the piano.

Dalia’s Mix Tape - BBC Symphony Orchestra 90th Birthday Celebration

Petroc Trelawny presents a mixture of live and pre-recorded music given by the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Dalia Stasevska from its home at the Maida Vale studios to mark its 90th birthday.

Dalia’s Live Mixtape is inspired by the BBC SO’s tour to Scandinavia in 1956 and offers a timetravel through Finnish and British music. Dalia writes: “The time travel idea was inspired by 90 years of history and amazing accomplishments of the Orchestra, but as well by the name of Sibelius's music: Scenes Historiques. We’re celebrating the history of BBCSO, the history of British music and the close friendship the UK has with Finnish music. See how a unique combination of music communicates with us, how pieces communicate with each other through times and what kind of story they tell us.”

Sibelius: Scenes Historiques, Op 66; 1st mvt "Metsästys" (The Chase))

THU 22:00 Free Thinking (m000nmxf)
The writing of Aimé Césaire

His stinging critique of European colonial racism and hypocrisy Discours sur le colonialisme was published in 1955. How does it resonate today?
A founder of the négritude movement, Aimé Césaire (26 June 1913 – 17 April 2008) also wrote poetry and a biography of Haitian revolutionary leader Toussaint Louverture. To discuss the influence of Césaire's writing, Rana Mitter is joined by Sudhir Hazareesingh, who has just published his own biography of Toussaint; New Generation Thinker Alexandra Reza, from the University of Oxford; Kehinde Andrews from Birmingham City University; and André Naffis-Sahely.

Black Spartacus: The Epic Life Of Toussaint Louverture by Sudhir Hazareesingh is out now and will be read as a Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4 from 16 November.

Alexandra Reza teaches post-colonial literature at the University of Oxford and is a New Generation Thinker - a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council which selects ten academics each year to turn their research into radio.

Kehinde Andrews is the author of Back to Black: Retelling Black Radicalism for the 21st Century.

André Naffis-Sahely is the author of author of The Promised Land: Poems from Itinerant Life.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m000nmxh)
Africa in the City

Fort-de-France

Writer and broadcaster Lindsay Johns continues his tour of great cities influenced by their relationship with Africa in Fort-de-France, the capital of the Caribbean island of Martinique.

On an island where, as he puts it, Gallic efficiency and Cartesian rigour rub shoulders with local Creole flavour, all in the enervating tropical heat, Lindsay examines the question of identity. Fort-de-France, says Lindsay, looks to Paris for her modus vivendi and to Africa for her raison d’être. So was the decision of Martinique’s most famous son - the poet, playwright, polymath, founder of the Negritude literary movement, politician and former Mayor of Fort-de-France, Aimé Césaire - to stave off independence and remain part of France, the right one? On his walk around the city Lindsay encounters French waiters, BMW-driving witch doctors, and a decapitated lady, as he considers this question.

Producer: Giles Edwards.

Music for the night

Hannah Peel with a magical sonic journey for late-night listening.


THU 23:30 Unclassified (m000nmxm)
Elizabeth Alker with music that defies classification, including the latest releases and exclusive previews.

Unclassified is a late night listening party, a place for curious ears to congregate, disconnect from all other devices and get lost in some soothing, serene and strange new sounds. It's a home for composers whose work cannot easily be categorised, artists who are as comfortable in a grimy basement venue as they are in a prestigious concert hall.

Beethoven Unleashed: Piano Sonatas

Beethoven the Innovator

Donald Macleod and pianist Angela Hewitt examine how Beethoven incorporated the technical advances made in the manufacture of the piano in his writing for the instrument, including the Hammerklavier.

As part of Composer of the Week's year-long focus on Beethoven, this week the world-renowned pianist Angela Hewitt chooses five contrasting aspects of the piano sonatas to discuss with Donald Macleod. In 2020, Hewitt reaches the end of her survey of Beethoven’s piano works with the last recording in her acclaimed series of his 32 piano sonatas. Begun in 2005, her Beethoven odyssey has been taken at a deliberately measured pace, to give ample space and time to reflect on each sonata, each recording being a testament to her deep understanding of Beethoven. Well known for her award-winning interpretation of Bach’s music, she brings that special insight to Beethoven’s profound admiration for the composer, after which she explores the humour Beethoven injects into his music, the composer’s ability to write cantabile or singing style and how Beethoven responded to the advancement of the piano.

In their final conversation, Donald Macleod and Angela Hewitt discuss how bigger pianos gave Beethoven full rein to write music which was completely modern in its time.

Brahms and Beyond: Heath Quartet

Presented by Georgia Mann.

In the final concert of our series from LSO St Luke's in London, chamber-music works by Brahms are played alongside those of Austro-Germanic composers who were inspired or influenced by the great Viennese master. Today, Georgia Mann presents the Heath Quartet performing works by Berg and Brahms. Alban Berg, like his teacher Arnold Schoenberg, was very conscious of composing in the shadow of Brahms. His String Quartet Op.3, a highly expressive two-movement work, became his first big success. The Heath Quartet end today's programme with Brahms' String Quartet in A minor, Op.51 No.2.

Beethoven's Four - a concerto and symphony

Live from the Royal Festival Hall - the London Philharmonic play Beethoven.
As part of Southbank Centre’s Inside Out season one of the centre's resident orchestras leaps into action with a fascinating rarity by the dashing Chevalier de Saint-Georges, violinist, composer and champion swordsman. And in a daring sleight of hand, Beethoven asks the pianist to steal in before the orchestra in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 4. The soloist Nicolas Namarodze promises to bring his poetic touch to that and also to the haunting slow movement, likened to Orpheus's journey to the underworld. Also on the bill, Daniele Rustoni conducts a Beethoven symphony which is unjustly overlooked, and favourite soprano Sophie Bevan sings of the pains of betrayal in love.
Presented by Martin Handley.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m000nmw4)
Africa in the City

Cape Town

Writer and broadcaster Lindsay Johns ends his series of essays on cities influenced by African migration in Cape Town.

Making his way around a city he knows intimately, respects abundantly and loves profusely, Lindsay asks what it means to be Capetonian. From the city's tragic racial history and its legacy, to the wave of migration from elsewhere in Africa, this is a place whose identity is constantly shifting. And as he concludes his series of essays, Lindsay ponders his own ambivalent feelings towards this demographic, political, social, spiritual change.

Producer: Giles Edwards.


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000nmw6)
Oren Ambarchi’s Mixtape

Oren Ambarchi is a guitarist, composer and musical polymath with a reputation for deconstructing genre; combining elements of free jazz, rock and contemporary composition. His work hops from modern electronics to minimal improvisation; blistering noise to hushed songwriting, with an open-eared approach that he also brings to his label Black Truffle. For this mixtape he hand picks the most surprising cuts from his collection.

Elsewhere we shine a light on a particular form of ‘Far East’ reggae from Jamaica which was developed by Chinese-Jamaican producers on the island, we hear the sounds of forests thinking as devised by Norwegian string duo Vilda & Inga and ‘imaginary island music’ by duo LAGOSS.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
