SAT 11:45 New Generation Artists (m000ythb)
Anastasia Kobekina, Alessandro Fisher, Alexander Gadjiev, Rob Luft

Kate Molleson continues her summer series celebrating the prodigious talents of Radio 3's current New Generation Artists, a dozen supremely talented musicians with burgeoning international careers. Today Alessandro Fisher brings his Italian flair to the young Benjamin Britten's settings of words by Michelangelo and Anastasia plays a delightful miniature by Britten's teacher, Frank Bridge.

Bridge: Spring Song
Anastasia Kobekina (cello), Luka Okros (piano)

Britten: Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo, Op. 22
Alessandro Fisher (tenor), Joseph Middleton (piano)

Trad. Italian arr Duni and Luft: Bella ci dormi (trad Italian)
Elina Duni (vocals), Rob Luft (guitar), Fred Thomas (piano)

Established two decades ago, Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme is internationally acknowledged as the foremost scheme of its kind. It exists to offer a platform for artists at the beginning of their international careers. Each year six musicians join the scheme for two years, during which time they appear at the UK's major music festivals, enjoy dates with the BBC orchestras and have the opportunity to record in the BBC studios. The artists are also encouraged to form artistic partnerships with one another and to explore a wide range of repertoire. In recent years Radio 3's New Generation Artists have appeared at many of the world's major music festivals and concert halls. The BBC New Generation Artists Scheme is not itself a prize, rather it offers a unique two year platform on which artists can develop their prodigious talents. Not surprisingly, the list of alumni reads like a Who’s Who of the most exciting musicians of the past two decades.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000ythg)
Soprano Ailish Tynan with music to stir the emotions

Soprano Ailish Tynan is used to tackling some of the biggest dramatic roles in opera and there is plenty of action in her choice of music today. She’ll be playing bracing orchestral works by Mussorgsky, Handel and Messiaen, and as contrast, there’ll be intimate drama in music by Judith Weir, Gabriel Fauré and Schumann. Plus the closing part of Puccini’s tragic La bohème.

Ailish also showcases two superstar singers of their day: Irish tenor John McCormack and celebrated jazz vocalist Betty Carter.

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

SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (m000ythj)
Christophe Beck

Matthew meets Canadian film composer Christophe Beck, who wrote the music for both Frozen films, the Ant-Man franchise and The Hangover trilogy.
Initially a music student at Yale where he wrote two musicals with his brother, the pianist Chilly Gonzales, he went on to study film scoring with Jerry Goldsmith at the University of Southern California. Starting out in television he won an Emmy for his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, before the cheerleading comedy Bring it On launched his film career. Other credits include Under the Tuscan Sun, Garfield, Crazy Stupid Love, Pitch Perfect, and Trolls.

Christophe talks to Matthew about his latest film Free Guy, his love of modular synths, and how it feels when a film you score flops at the box office.

Producer: Ruth Thomson

Kathryn Tickell presents these two specially curated mixtapes.

Elsewhere in the programme, UK sax great John Surman shares some of the music that inspires him and Jumoké plays tracks from harpist Brandee Younger and a new reissue series reviving classic British jazz albums.

Produced by Thomas Rees for Somethin’ Else.

Award-winning Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson makes his much-anticipated Proms debut, as soloist in both Bach’s Keyboard Concerto in F minor, whose energised outer movements frame a ravishing central Adagio, and Mozart’s pioneering Piano Concerto K491, a rare minor-key work whose stormy, richly orchestrated music climaxes in a relentless dance. The Philharmonia Orchestra and Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi frame the concert with two symphonies: Prokofiev’s playful ‘Classical’ Symphony, with its clever juxtaposition of traditional forms and contemporary colours, and the more loaded irony of Shostakovich’s compact Symphony No. 9.

SUN 12:00 My Problem with... (m000qncz)
Mahler

The second of two shows where the harpsichordist and broadcaster Mahan Esfahani throws down the argument that some of the so-called ‘greats’ maybe aren’t that great.

In this episode, Mahan picks on the music of Gustav Mahler, a composer who formed a bridge between the 19th-century Austrian-German tradition from Beethoven to Brahms and the modernism of the early 20th century. Famous for his symphonic output, which brought together different strands of Romanticism whilst giving a glimpse to the future. What’s not to love?

Quite a bit, says Mahan. What’s with all the endless hypothesising and posing of music questions? Why doesn’t he ever write a good tune? His orchestrations are so bizarre, to what end? Why are his symphonies so excruciatingly long?

Arguing in Mahler’s defence is the conductor Joshua Weilerstein. Joshua is currently the incumbent music director at the Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne in Switzerland. Previously he was the Assistant Conductor at the New York Philharmonic and had a hand in the orchestra’s famous Young People’s Concerts, the same popular series associated with the former New York Philharmonic director and Mahler champion Leonard Bernstein. Joshua tackles each of Mahan’s charges head on and attempts to shake Mahan out of his Mahler morass.

Proms at Cadogan Hall 2

BBC Proms: The Marian Consort perform music by one of the most celebrated composers of 16th-century Europe, Josquin des Prez, and some of his contemporaries.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny from Cadogan Hall, London.

Marian Consort

British vocal ensemble the Marian Consort makes its Proms debut with a concert celebrating Renaissance master Josquin des Prez 500 years after his death. In a season of musical borrowings, three of Josquin’s greatest motets, all drawing on pre-existing material, are paired with three musical homages – including the kaleidoscopic Inviolata, integra et casta es by the first published black composer, Vicente Lusitano – that each rework Josquin’s own music for a new age.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b081t4vp)
Cover Versions

The Listening Service explores the art of the cover version: what happens when one composer 'covers' the art of another? Why was it common practice for Baroque composers to recycle their own work and 'borrow' from their colleagues on a regular basis? And what of musical traditions like folk and jazz where key pieces or 'standards' are covered by multiple artists? Tom Service talks to Baroque expert Berta Joncas and folk star Eliza Carthy to get some answers.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000ytj7)
Walter Scott

This week’s programme celebrates the work of Sir Walter Scott on the 250th anniversary of the writer's birth. Scott was so renowned that a vast monument built to his memory still towers over Princes Street in Edinburgh, a full 30 feet taller than Nelson’s Column in London. A pioneer of the historical novel and of the gothic, Scott’s output of poetry and prose was colossal. But he also found time to more or else invent the modern idea of Scottishness, when he devised an elaborate pageant to welcome George IV to Scotland in 1822. Sophia McLean and Denis Lawson read extracts not only from Scott’s work, but also from other Scottish authors and poets whose writing reflects some of his sensibilities, including Margaret Oliphant, Iain Banks, Jean Guthrie Smith and Robin Jenkins. The music includes Rossini’s La Donna del Lago, one of many operas adapted from a Scott novel and Haydn’s arrangement of Lizae Baillie – the kind of traditional ballad that Scott drew inspiration from. There are also offerings from Hector Berlioz, Thea Musgrave, Tiny Grimes, Eddi Reader and Simon Thoumire.

The Art of Rowing with Mary Wollstonecraft

Mary Wollstonecraft, the great feminist pioneer is best known for her book, ‘A Vindication of the Rights of Women’. She was never afraid to make waves.

But after her book came out in 1792 she embarked on perhaps her greatest and most personal experiment in modern womanhood: travelling alone as a single mother.

She hadn’t planned her life this way. Her passionate affair with an American adventurer, Gilbert Imlay, had come to an end when he abandoned her and their baby daughter, Fanny. Undeterred, she set off for Scandinavia, where she hoped to impress Imlay by tracking down some business assets that seemed to have been lost at sea. Mary turned the letters she wrote during her travels into her next book, and it gives us a vivid picture of a single mother who is fully engaged in the world around her - a ‘fallen' woman refusing to stay at home and play the victim.

In the end, the book impressed a much worthier man, Mary’s fellow radical activist and writer, William Godwin. ‘If ever there was a book calculated to make a man in love with its author, this appears to me to be the book,’ he said.

We join Dr Lisa Mullen, herself a single mother with experience of the vicissitudes of travel-with-child, as she sets off on a voyage of the imagination in the company of one of the greatest intellects of western culture, to 18th-century Sweden and Norway. She talks to writer Marie-Noelle Bauer and artists Vicky Samuel to find out if having a child on your own is really that different today.

Restlessness and single motherhood: sex and motherhood: treacherous waters indeed.

Dr Lisa Mullen is a writer and academic at Oxford University, where she researches the literature of sick bodies and strange landscapes.

She published her first book this year - "Mid-Century Gothic".

Producer: Sara Jane Hall

2. Saint-Sulpice, Paris

David Briggs invites us to experience the fire and majesty of one of France’s greatest musical treasures.

In this series, organist David Briggs invites us to visit three of his favourite pipe organs, picked from the hundreds of unique instruments he’s encountered during his career as an international recitalist. He shares his experiences of what these organs feel like to play and the special qualities that gives each their own, very individual character, including the extraordinary spaces they inhabit. Alongside, he picks a selection of great recordings that lets us hear these organs at their very best.

In episode two, David gives us a back stage tour of the organ housed in Paris’s church of Saint-Sulpice. Here he shows us a very grand instrument, once at the cutting edge of Victorian technology, now a beautifully preserved example of the distinctive sound world of builder, Cavaillé-Coll, whose innovations inspired many of France’s most celebrated organ composers.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000ck10)
Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713)

Corelli, the European Phenomenon

Donald Macleod delves into the international successes of Arcangelo Corelli.

Arcangelo Corelli was something of a European phenomenon not only during his lifetime, but also after his death. His compositional output was not large, but the development of the printing press enabled his music to be widely circulated. Musically, he bridged the gap between the Baroque and the Classical periods, and is seen as pivotal in the development of the sonata and the concerto. Even today, Corelli’s music is held in high esteem, with composers still inspired by his music. As a violinist he was also legendary, and people flocked from all over Europe to not only hear him play, but to also be taught by him. Corelli spent most of his career in Rome, maintained in some luxury by royalty, nobility and the Church. During his career he collaborated with many other composers including Alessandro Scarlatti and Handel. Despite his fame and continued popularity, we still know relatively little about Corelli, and this Composer of the Week series seeks to explore the man and his music through his personal and professional relationships.

In this programme, Donald Macleod explores those relationships that propelled Corelli to being something of a European phenomenon. The writer on music Charles Burney thought that Corelli’s fame came from his music being so pure, rich and graceful, and that it withstood the test of time. Corelli’s fame initially originated with his ability as a violinist, and this attracted over time a stream of international students. With the evolution of the printing press, Corelli’s music would also bolster his reputation, with not only copies being produced in Italy, but also Amsterdam, Antwerp and London. Publishers fought over printing music by Corelli, disagreeing over whose publication was more authentic. Myths would grow and surround Corelli, all adding to his celebrity status.

Marmen Quartet

The prizewinning young Marmen Quartet, formed in 2013 at London’s Royal College of Music, makes its BBC Proms debut with Haydn’s vivacious ‘Lark’ Quartet, which opens with a soaring violin melody that gives the work its nickname. It is also the inspiration for the String Quartet No. 1 by Robert Simpson, performed in this centenary year of his birth. Its opening draws on Haydn’s own initial theme and its ingenious coda reflects Haydn’s elegant simplicity, with a nod to Beethoven thrown in for good measure.

An evening of opera excerpts on the themes of separation and reconciliation.

A host of British opera stars join Ben Glassberg and the BBC Philharmonic for a night rich in emotion and drama. After a year of lockdowns and social distancing, the themes of isolation and loneliness as well as the joy of reunion have particular poignancy in excerpts from much-loved operas including Handel’s Rodelinda, Beethoven’s Fidelio, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel and Puccini’s La bohème.


MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (m0005sld)
Cristiani and Her Cello

Dr Kate Kennedy explores the life of pioneer 19th-century cellist Lise Cristiani and investigates the profound bond she developed with the instrument she called 'husband'. Perhaps the first female cello virtuosa, Dr Kennedy finds out what makes her a trailblazer from her playing position to the extraordinary journey she undertook through some of the most remote areas of Russia.

Very little is known of Lise Cristiani's life, but tantalising references remain. She is the person to whom Mendelssohn's Song Without Words for cello and piano was dedicated, and her 1700 Stradivarius still bears her name. Dr Kennedy travels to Paris, the city of Cristiani's birth, and to Cremona, the city of her cello's birth, to help piece together the life and artistry of this remarkable woman.

Dr Kennedy, herself a cellist, speaks to Julian Lloyd-Webber and Natalie Clein, as well as to the luthier Charles Beare. In Paris, the cellist Marie-Thérèse Grisenti and the journalist Dominique Boutel, who have become fascinated by Cristiani, explore her life and also her repertoire. In conjunction with the pianist and Mendelssohn historian Prof. Larry Todd, they discuss the power and the significance of Mendelssohn’s Song Without Words, and thanks to Larry Todd, we hear for the first time another piece, still unpublished, that is dedicated to her. Throughout the programme we hear a wide variety of music from Bach, Chopin, and Mendelssohn, to Delius and Bloch.

We hear Cristiani’s voice through her letters, and Dr Kennedy tries too to find the voice of her cello, asking whether an instrument can tell us anything about the player who spent so many emotional and life-changing experiences with it.

Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713)

Corelli and the Aristocracy

Donald Macleod explores Arcangelo Corelli’s relationships with the nobility and crowned heads.

Arcangelo Corelli was something of a European phenomenon not only during his lifetime, but also after his death. His compositional output was not large, but the development of the printing press enabled his music to be widely circulated. Musically, he bridged the gap between the Baroque and the Classical periods, and is seen as pivotal in the development of the sonata and the concerto. Even today, Corelli’s music is held in high esteem, with composers still inspired by his music. As a violinist he was also legendary, and people flocked from all over Europe to not only hear him play, but to also be taught by him. Corelli spent most of his career in Rome, maintained in some luxury by royalty, nobility and the Church. During his career he collaborated with many other composers including Alessandro Scarlatti and Handel. Despite his fame and continued popularity, we still know relatively little about Corelli, and this Composer of the Week series seeks to explore the man and his music through his personal and professional relationships.

In this programme, Donald Macleod journeys through the many relationships Corelli had with nobles and royals, ranging from the eccentric Queen Christina of Sweden and the Electress Sofia Carlotta of Brandenburg, to Duke Francesco d’Este of Modena and the King of Naples. Corelli was fortunate to be employed by the nobility, to the extent that he would often receive offers from different aristocrats. They tried to poach Corelli from one another, wanting to secure the services of the famed Corelli for themselves.

Maxim Emelyanychev and Principals of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra

Maxim Emelyanychev is the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s dynamic principal conductor, but for today's Lunchtime Concert he takes up his seat at the keyboard to perform two works alongside five of the SCO’s celebrated woodwind principals.

When Mozart composed his Quintet in E flat, aged 28, he believed it to be the best thing he had written in his life. Scored for piano, oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon, this life-affirming work gives each instrument their moment to shine.

Ludwig Thuille was a prolific composer, best known for his operas and chamber music and a contemporary and friend of Richard Strauss. After his death in 1907, at the age of 45, his reputation waned and his work was neglected. His Sextet for piano and wind instruments remains his most popular, though still under-performed, chamber works.

Rakhi Singh, violin/director

Fresh from the release of its debut recording, the dynamic Manchester Collective makes its first appearance at the Proms with a programme that draws on the musical past to help imagine a bold musical future. Award-winning harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani explodes stereotypes around his instrument in concertos by Joseph Horovitz and Górecki – the former a witty fusion of jazz colours and textures with Classical forms, the latter a musical ‘prank’, motoric and defiantly playful. Also looking back to the 18th century is Dobrinka Tabakova’s Suite in Old Style – a musical homage to Rameau (alias Amareu) that blends folk and Baroque details in its five contrasting movements. The concert also includes music by the black American avant-garde post- Minimalist and gay activist Julius Eastman and Novello Award-nominated composer Edmund Finnis.


TUE 22:00 Sunday Feature (m0006swg)
Cold War in Full Swing - Louis Armstrong in the GDR

Jazz and communist East Germany seem unlikely bedfellows. Yet in 1965 Louis Armstrong became the first American entertainer to play jazz there at the height of the Cold War. East Germans celebrated Armstrong, and his visit became a propaganda victory for East Germany, helping it to boost its reputation in the wake of its oppressive government building the Berlin Wall in 1961.

On his brief and only tour through East Germany Armstrong played to packed houses. His popularity surprised the authorities very much considering not one record of him was available before 1965 and your passion for the music could land you in prison.

Kevin Le Gendre peeks through the former Iron Curtain to discover the dangers jazz lovers faced to pave the way for these legendary concerts to happen while tracing the tour. He speaks to jazz journalist Karlheinz Drechsel who first risked his career for jazz but then, amazingly, had the privilege to accompany Louis Armstrong on the tour and announce his concerts. He tells Kevin what it was like meeting Louis Armstrong and seeing beyond the smile and laughter that Louis Armstrong was famous for. Armstrong not only had to navigate political sensitivities on the Cold War front between east and west, but also on the home front in the US, when questioned about the Civil Rights Movement, which was at its peak.

The tour left a big impression on both sides. Armstrong was very taken by the enthusiastic welcome he received and East Germany, far from the authorities’ intentions, developed a Free Jazz scene that became an unexpected export hit.

Speakers include the journalists Karlheinz Drechsel, Siegfried Schmidt-Joos and Leslie Colitt; the jazz fan Volker Stiehler; the authors Ricky Riccardi and Stephan Schulz; pianist Ulrich Gumpert; and Roland Trisch, who worked at East Germany’s Artists Agency, which enabled Louis Armstrong’s tour. Archive material of the Selma to Montgomery march in Alabama on 7 March 1965 is courtesy of the Robert H Jackson Center.

Arcangelo Corelli was something of a European phenomenon not only during his lifetime, but also after his death. His compositional output was not large, but the development of the printing press enabled his music to be widely circulated. Musically, he bridged the gap between the Baroque and the Classical periods, and is seen as pivotal in the development of the sonata and the concerto.

Despite his fame and continued popularity, we still know relatively little about Corelli, and this Composer of the Week series seeks to explore the man and his music through his personal and professional relationships.

In this programme, Donald Macleod delves into the opportunities open to Corelli through his relationship with the Roman Catholic Church. Two of his more prominent patrons were Cardinal Pamphili and Cardinal Ottoboni. Corelli was employed in sequence by these two cardinals, and was held in high esteem. He not only composed music for them, but was able to live in their palaces in some splendour, often writing incidental music for their private theatres and annual festivities.

Chineke! Chamber Ensemble

The Chineke! Chamber Ensemble makes its Scottish debut with two rarely heard works. Samuel Coleridge Taylor’s Nonet in F minor was written in London when he was only 18 and fast becoming one of the most noted composers of his day. It’s a lyrical work, rich in melody and harmony, written for strings, wind and piano. Coleridge-Taylor’s contemporary Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote his Piano Quintet in C minor roughly ten years later, in 1903 and revised it twice in the following years, however he later withdrew this early chamber work along with others and his widow embargoed its performance until the 1990s.

Nubya Garcia

Live from the BBC Proms: an evening of jazz with saxophonist and composer Nubya Garcia, marking her Proms debut.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Hannah French

British saxophonist, composer, DJ and bandleader Nubya Garcia is one of the brightest of a new generation of jazz talent, drawing comparison with greats such as Sonny Rollins and Dexter Gordon. Named a ‘major voice’ by The New York Times, she has devised a brand of ‘eclectic, danceable, political jazz’ that draws on influences from Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Tonight marks her Proms debut.

WED 22:00 Between the Ears (b0b51ypf)
Right Between the Ears

When Ken Hollings underwent surgery at Moorfields Hospital for a detached retina he experienced an unexpected symphony inside his head, right between the ears. The sounds have haunted him ever since. Musician Martin McCarrick also found himself in a terrifying and unsettling world of head noise that began with a perforated eardrum and ended in a rare medical condition. He too has never forgotten the unexpected world of noise he heard between his ears and has set about recreating it. In this binaural edition of Between the Ears Ken Hollings goes in search of his primal sound.

Folk at Home

At Home with Owen Shiers

From her garage studio in Wiltshire, Verity Sharp calls up musicians who are rooted in traditional music, exercises their home-recording skills, and asks them to sing something that’s been particularly resonating for them during lockdown. In this episode, Verity dials up Owen Shiers who shares a song that’s reminding him of his roots in the Clettwr Valley of Wales.

In this period of social distancing, how is music helping us keep connected to the things that matter? With its deep links to people, communities, land, nature and history, folk song has much to offer at this point in time.

Presented and produced by Verity Sharp.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000cnq8)
Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713)

Corelli's Contemporaries

Donald Macleod traces the relationship between Arcangelo Corelli and his musical contemporaries.

Arcangelo Corelli was something of a European phenomenon not only during his lifetime, but also after his death. His compositional output was not large, but the development of the printing press enabled his music to be widely circulated. Musically, he bridged the gap between the Baroque and the Classical periods, and is seen as pivotal in the development of the sonata and the concerto. Even today, Corelli’s music is held in high esteem, with composers still inspired by his music. As a violinist he was also legendary, and people flocked from all over Europe to not only hear him play, but to also be taught by him. Corelli spent most of his career in Rome, maintained in some luxury by royalty, nobility and the Church. During his career he collaborated with many other composers including Alessandro Scarlatti and Handel. Despite his fame and continued popularity, we still know relatively little about Corelli, and this Composer of the Week series seeks to explore the man and his music through his personal and professional relationships.

In this programme, Donald Macleod discovers more details about Corelli's life and character through his relationship with other composers. Including stories of Alessandro Scarlatti's jealousy over Corelli’s exulted position in Rome and Handel's visit with the great master, made when he travelled to Rome as a young man. Handel not only composed music based on some of Corelli’s own themes but also probably composed a violin concerto for Corelli to play.

Concert presented by Kate Molleson

Can a composer reuse the past and at the same time move in a forward direction? It’s the question that goes to the heart of Igor Stravinsky’s music - works that often take their inspiration from historical models but remain defiantly, distinctively modern

Martyn Brabbins joins the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to mark the 50th anniversary of Stravinsky’s death with a concert pairing the composer’s ballet Pulcinella – a witty, charming take on Baroque dance and commedia dell’arte – with the heart-rending Stabat mater by Pergolesi, whose music inspired it

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (m000bmrr)
A Racist Music

Errollyn Wallen explores and challenges the legacy of John Powell (1882-1963) – a once-celebrated composer whose racist politics scarred the lives of generations of Americans.

John Powell (1882-1963) was one of the most celebrated American composers of the early 20th century: his “Rhapsodie nègre” for piano and orchestra was the most-performed concerto of the era, after Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue”. Performed from Carnegie Hall to London to Berlin, Powell’s music blends the lush harmonies of the late Romantic era with folk tunes and even early jazz: a missing link between the early Americana of Edward MacDowell and Amy Beach and the Roaring Twenties modernism of Gershwin and Copland.

Yet you’ll find barely a mention of John Powell in most music textbooks.

Because Powell was also one of the most infamous – and horribly influential – racist ideologues in music history. A composer who didn’t just hold repugnant white supremacist views, but used his own compositions and work as an ethnomusicologist to articulate them, and who used his position as a major cultural figure to help personally secure the passage of one of the most poisonous racist laws of the 20th century: America’s 1924 Racial Integrity Act.

In Powell’s native Virginia – from the archives of Charlottesville’s University of Virginia to the bucolic Blue Ridge Mountains – we discover that more than half a century after his death, Powell’s social, musical and ideological legacy continues to scar the lives of musicians today.

---

This is a story that challenges our romanticised idea of American music history – a story often told of cosmopolitan cross-fertilisation, Dvorak’s “New World Symphony”, of jazz, Gershwin, and the Harlem Renaissance. But it’s also one whose central, disturbing idea – of a white cultural supremacism – still plays out in British music. As we unravel Powell’s story, Errollyn discusses the challenges that continue to face musicians of colour – and the structural racism that classical music still seeks to dismantle – with a generation of young musicians, including composer Daniel Kidane, cellist Pete Yelding and oboist Uchenna Ngwe.

Musicologists Bonnie Gordon and Philip Ewell explain how Powell’s unquestioning championing of white music above all others continues to play out in insidious and powerful ways in the 21st century. Powell may be dead, his virulent racism espoused by fewer people now (we can hope), and yet it’s lazy – and dangerous – to cast this as a story from the past: Powell’s legacy is a conversation with the present.

Bonnie Gordon explores how Powell’s cultural racism played directly into the horrific tragedy in Charlottesville in 2017, when an anti-fascist protester was killed at a white supremacist demo. Meanwhile Philip Ewell powerfully unravels what he describes as the “white racial frame” of the way we consume and talk about classical music, and how it’s inescapable even in 2019.

Archivists Molly Schwartzburg and Ellen Welch take us through Powell's papers, bequeathed to the University of Virginia after his death in 1963, and the challenges of curating his legacy. (With thanks to University of Virginia scholar Aldona Dye and Appalachian folk music expert Ted Olsson).

And what of Powell’s compositions? Pianist Nicholas Ross describes his ethical struggle with Powell’s piano pieces, having discovered them by chance in archives two decades ago. Having fallen in love with the notes on the page, he was appalled to discover the ideology of its composer. He takes us through some of Powell’s piano works as we grapple with the question of whether any musical value is worth hearing in the context of the creator’s wider views - especially when, as journalist J Lester Feder explains, Powell’s most famous works were explicitly created to musicologically demonstrate the “superiority” (as he saw it) of white people.

Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713)

Corelli and His Followers

Donald Macleod explores the Arcangelo Corelli craze after the composer’s death.

Arcangelo Corelli was something of a European phenomenon not only during his lifetime, but also after his death. His compositional output was not large, but the development of the printing press enabled his music to be widely circulated. Musically, he bridged the gap between the Baroque and the Classical periods, and is seen as pivotal in the development of the sonata and the concerto. Even today, Corelli’s music is held in high esteem, with composers still inspired by his music. As a violinist he was also legendary, and people flocked from all over Europe to not only hear him play, but to also be taught by him. Corelli spent most of his career in Rome, maintained in some luxury by royalty, nobility and the Church. During his career he collaborated with many other composers including Alessandro Scarlatti and Handel. Despite his fame and continued popularity, we still know relatively little about Corelli, and this Composer of the Week series seeks to explore the man and his music through his personal and professional relationships.

In this final programme, Donald Macleod explores the craze for the music of Corelli after the composer’s death. He was held in such high esteem that not only was he buried in the Pantheon near the painter Raphael, but also yearly recitals of his music were held there before the tomb. Composers like Couperin tried to emulate Corelli and the Italian style, and Locatelli would claim to be in direct musical lineage. Others took works by Corelli and tried to capitalise upon their popularity by embellishing them further in print. In modern times, Tippett and Rachmaninov have paid musical homage to Corelli, by creating variations on themes by the great master.

Elisabeth Leonskaja

The Edinburgh International Festival welcomes back legendary pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja to perform works by Schubert, Schoenberg and Brahms. She begins her recital with Schubert's lyrical Allegretto from 3 Piano Pieces, D.946. In 1911, Arnold Schoenberg longed to move away from the large-scale, dense works that had been occupying him. Freed from these constraints and excited by their brevity, he set aside February 9th as a 'day off' to compose five of these musical epigrams. In contrast to these miniatures, Leonskaja ends her festival programme in symphonic style with Brahms's five-movement Sonata in F minor, inspired by Beethoven’s Fifth.

David Bates, conductor

‘Didn’t I tell you that I composed the Requiem for myself?’ Mozart may (or may not) have spoken those words on his death bed, but his choral masterpiece, the Requiem, commissioned by a mysterious cloaked figure, certainly offers a transfiguring experience. Written in the last month of Mozart’s life, it contrasts the fear of death with radiant hope and balances dark drama with sublime simplicity. It’s sung tonight by a cast of rising-star soloists, joined by some of the UK’s most talented young voices, the National Youth Chamber Choir. As a prelude, the concert’s first half includes a short symphony by Mozart’s contemporary Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges – the first composer of African ancestry to make waves in Europe – and a selection of dances arias and storm-evocations drawn from operas by Jean-Philippe Rameau, the leading music-dramatist of this day.


FRI 22:00 Sunday Feature (m000dxyq)
The Lonely Death of Stanley Bate

It was whilst driving his car that Simon Heffer first heard some music on the radio that greatly touched him. It was a viola concerto, and Heffer couldn’t believe what he was hearing. He found the work truly sublime, and not only was it a surprise that he hadn’t heard this music before, but even more so was the name, Stanley Bate. Since then Simon Heffer has been keen to find out more, and this programme is a journey into the world of this enigma of English music.

A cursory glance at the limited information on Stanley Bate will bring up luminaries of the musical world including the famed teacher Nadia Boulanger, composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, music critic and composer Virgil Thomson, and the list goes on and on. Although he was older than Benjamin Britten, Bate began his studies at the Royal College of Music after Britten, with Vaughan Williams, Arthur Benjamin, Gordon Jacob and R.O. Morris as his teachers. After a period in Paris with Boulanger, a spell in Berlin with Hindemith, and before World War Two, Bate had a highly successful career - particularly as a composer of ballet, collaborating with the likes of Marie Rambert and Ninette de Valois. Yet all of this was to change, and with the onset of war he moved with his wife, the composer Peggy Glanville Hicks, to Australia and then on to the USA. Although there were more successes to come, with music performed at Carnegie Hall, and then once back in the UK eventual broadcasts on the BBC, Bate’s career was never to regain its pre-war position. There were further complications to his story as well, personal ones, including a breakdown and periods of depression, alcoholism, and also issues around his sexuality. Then came his early death. Did he take his own life as composer Ned Rorem suggested? If so, why?

Simon Heffer lifts the veil on this composer who, as a student, won nearly all the awards available at the Royal College of Music. He begins with meeting conductor Stephen Bell, whose recording of the Bate Viola Concerto made such an impression. Heffer is joined by the composer Joseph Horovitz who remembers meeting Bate, and also by musicologist Suzanne Robinson whose biography of Peggy Glanville Hicks has shone a light into the murky personal world and career of Stanley Bate. Heffer also goes in search of music by Bate being performed and explored now, and joins Emily Gray and Timothy Salter to explore some songs they’re planning to record. There is also archive footage from others who knew Stanley Bate, including from Peggy Glanville Hicks and composer Paul Bowles, originating from A Modern Odyssey by Juniper Films, directed by John Tristram and James Wilson.

Daybreak... and five writers set off on foot - and report back:

Finally, the biographer Lucy Hughes Hallett, strolling amongst headstones in a local cemetery. Accompanying her, a hairy pointer called Kilburn, who has his own reasons for trotting out early.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000yvd3)
In the Key of Green

This show is brought to you by the colour green. Jennifer Lucy Allan goes verdant with a meditation on the colour green from Tomoko Sauvage and Francesco Cavaliere, a spoken word piece by Fluxus ‘action-poet’ Robert Filiou and a ceremonial peacock dance from Cambodia.

For their new release Tomoko Sauvage and Francesco Cavaliere play a host of green instruments and objects to radiate colour into sound. For inspiration, they used a series of anecdotes about the hue: a chinese myth about a man wearing a green hat or the names of Japanese traffic lights. We also hear a performance by Fluxus artist Robert Filiou from 1977, who devoted his piece ‘Greetings from L, We Are All Green’ to the colour.

Elsewhere, Jen plunges into the deep end of her record collection to select an old favourite from street performer George Coleman, aka Bongo Joe, some early Cajun accordion from Harry Smith’s Anthology of folk music and music made by buoys and wind powered sails by Charlie Hooker.
