Composer Hannah Kendall explores the notes between the notes

Hannah Kendall has composed music for various orchestras, ensembles and choirs throughout the UK, and her new piece Tuxedo: Vasco 'de' Gama opened the 2020 live BBC Proms with its world premiere. In 2015 Hannah won the Women of the Future Award for Arts and Culture.

Today Hannah explains how Mahan Esfahani’s recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations transformed the way she heard them, and explores the fluttery flute writing in Tania León’s Alma.

She also talks about the effect a space can have on a sound and treats us to the virtuosic tuba playing that changed her whole view of the instrument.

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

Mike is one of the most successful cricket captains of all time, winning 17 tests for England and losing only four. No one who follows the game will forget the so-called ‘miracle’ of the 1981 Ashes: recalled as captain, Mike galvanised the demoralised team in one of the greatest-ever feats of sporting psychology - and led England to an astonishing 3-1 series victory.

The Australian fast bowler Rodney Hogg famously described Mike as having ‘a degree in people’ – and that’s particularly appropriate as he’s gone on to have a long and successful second career as a psychoanalyst, as well as writing a series of books and working as a cricket journalist.

Mike talks to Michael Berkeley about the close engagement he has with music – he listens with the same intensity and concentration he brought to test cricket and that he brings to his work as a psychoanalyst.

He chooses music by Bach, Monteverdi, and Tchaikovsky, and a Mozart sonata that reminds him of his father, also a first-class cricketer.

Mike is drawn to the complexity and darkness of music written by Beethoven and by Schubert at the very end of their lives and to an opera by Harrison Birtwistle that he finds challenging and difficult but ultimately enlightening.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000m6f6)
HIPP to be Square

Tom Service dips a toe into the choppy waters of historically informed performance practice. HIPP is the latest term for the well-established vogue of recreating the sounds of music from past centuries. But how can we possibly know what music sounded like before it was recorded? Can HIPP ever be more than a hopeful stab in the dark? Like quinoa and farmers' markets, is it merely another facet of fashion and commercial imperative, a mirror that reflects us and our current concerns straight back at ourselves? Or is it a revitalising and constantly evolving force for good, sweeping away years of lazy and complacent tradition, revealing afresh music we thought we knew? Violinist Rachel Podger and chronicler of HIPP Nicolas Kenyon are on hand to help.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0004n6z)
Do Keep in Touch

From a texting poem to a novel written in letters and intimate letters for strings composed by Janáček. This edition of Words and Music is about an increasingly frenzied international obsession: communication.

Of course, communicating is nothing new and as we approach World Letter Writing Day on September 1st, we begin with readings from good, old-fashioned letters such as those exchanged by F Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway in the 1920s; Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath in the 50s; and fictional, archly manipulative letters between the Viscount de Malmont and Marchioness de Merteuil in Laclos's Les Liaisons Dangereuses.

Getting more up to date, the poet Carol Ann Duffy's poem "Text" highlights text messaging, today's most used, misused and disposable way to keep in touch. Jonathan Franzen's Purity highlights the tendency of texting to lead to unfortunate, emotional gameplay. We also have literature by JRR Martin, Keats, Hardy, Margaret Atwood and others. Music is by Gershwin, Janáček, Roy Harris, Laurie Anderson, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Tom Waits and Fauré.

The words are read by the actors Emily Bruni and Paterson Joseph,

SUN 20:30 Edinburgh International Festival (m000z5t0)
2018 Queen's Hall Series

Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich in 2018

Acclaimed Serbian pianist Tamara Stefanovich joined former Messiaen protégé Pierre-Laurent Aimard at the Queens Hall in Edinburgh in 2018. Their live performance centred around two works; Brahms’s sumptuous Sonata for Two Pianos, that would later become his Piano Quintet in F minor, followed by Messiaen’s all-encompassing Visions de l’Amen. Messiaen’s two piano works were written for the sparkling talent of 19-year-old Yvonne Loriod and himself to play. They gave the premiere during the German occupation of Paris in 1943 and with the composer Arthur Honegger present. He wrote that the work was ‘a remarkable one, of great musical richness and of true grandeur in its conception.’

A Night on Lundy

An audio voyage to the remote island of Lundy, a haven for marine wildlife.

12 miles off the coast of North Devon, Lundy has long been a place of refuge. Once ruled by Barbary pirates and political plotters, the island's stormy history has blown over, leaving a peaceful haven, awash with wildlife, and home to just 20 people. Stepping ashore from the ferry, MS Oldenburg, we'll be castaways for the night, and our to guide us, is the island's nature warden, Dean Woodfin-Jones. Walking the blustery coastal path, it's time to meet the seabirds - from late spring they nest here in the cliffs, and have trebled in recent years. From the raucous cackles of guillemots and razorbills, to the cries of kittiwakes and growls of Atlantic Grey seals, Lundy’s coastline is like a polyphonic party throughout the summer breeding season. But after dark, a different kind of magic happens. At midnight, the island’s generator turns off and suddenly there's no light, no internet - only the weather and the eerie sounds that emerge from the stillness. We'll be visited by Manx shearwaters, take shelter at the top of a lighthouse, and hear a lone skylark usher in the dawn.

Donald Macleod and art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon visit the National Gallery in London to build a picture of music and art in Josquin’s age.

The humanist Cosimo Bartoli described Josquin as the Michelangelo of Music. A master of polyphonic choral writing, Josquin was as widely admired in his own lifetime as posthumously. While Josquin was a dominant force in music, the Franco-Flemish area with which he’s associated, also produced some remarkable painters, who, like Josquin and his fellow composers, exported their style, technical accomplishments and influence across Europe. In a series to mark the 500th anniversary of Josquin’s death, Donald Macleod visits the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square with art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon, to build a picture of Josquin’s music and the places he lived and worked, which also stimulated painters to produce equally outstanding Art. To accompany the series the paintings they discuss can be viewed on the Radio 3 website.

Considering his standing, it’s surprisingly difficult to map Josquin’s life. His birthdate was possibly 1450 or perhaps 1455 and it’s thought he was a choirboy at the collegiate church of St. Géry in Cambrai. Documents show he died in 1521, by which time he was probably in his seventies. He spent his last years as provost of the Collegiate church of Notre Dame in Condé sur l’Escaut, a town near Saint Quentin, right on the border with what’s now Belgium. In between times, Josquin may have had an association with the royal courts of King René in Aix-en-Provence and Louis XI of France, before working for the influential Sforza family in Milan and becoming the first maestro di cappella for Ercole d’Este in Ferrara.

Today Donald Macleod considers Josquin’s roots, and the paintings of Jan van Eyck, and other Northern Renaissance artists with Andrew Graham-Dixon at the National Gallery. The paintings they mention are on the Radio 3 website.

Proms at Cadogan Hall 5

Live at the BBC Proms: Olivier Stankiewicz and Huw Watkins play 20th-century oboe music by Gipps, Saint-Saëns, Dutilleux and Poulenc.

First broadcast on Monday from Cadogan Hall, London.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Camille Saint‐Saëns: Oboe Sonata
Ruth Gipps: Sea-Shore Suite

Olivier Stankiewicz (oboe)
Huw Watkins (piano)

A triptych of 20th-century sonatas by Saint-Saëns, Dutilleux and Poulenc forms the heart of this Anglo-French programme. The cool lines of Saint-Saëns’s neo-Classical sonata give way to the edgier, mercurial beauty of Dutilleux’s, while the Poulenc pays musical homage to its dedicatee, Sergey Prokofiev, ending with a ravishing lament. Ruth Gipps’s vivid Sea-Shore Suite completes the recital.

When the 20-year-old George Benjamin’s Ringed by the Flat Horizon was performed at the Proms in 1980, it marked an arrival for a precociously talented young composer. Now established as one of the greats of his generation, he returns to conduct regular collaborators, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, in a concert featuring Ravel’s jazz-infused Piano Concerto, an operatic ‘pot-pourri’ by his friend, the late Oliver Knussen, the world premiere of his own Concerto for Orchestra and his new re-workings of Fantasias by Purcell, the ‘English Orpheus’.


MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (m0004dpr)
Hotel Genius

It’s been described as one of the most remarkable collections of minds on the planet. It has a brilliant international faculty, but no students. Its researchers have made some of the most significant scientific discoveries of the 20th century, but it has never had a laboratory.

Sally Marlow joins scholars for the start of a new term at The Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton New Jersey, conceived as a paradise for curiosity-driven research in mathematics, natural sciences, social science and history.

The Institute has more than once been called an Intellectual Hotel, and that certainly captures its leisurely pace, but appearances can be deceptive. Scholars here have an extraordinary ability to work on what everyone else is looking at, but to see something differently. Since its founding in 1930, it’s been home to a remarkable number of world-class thinkers, the most famous of whom was Albert Einstein who exerted a gravitational pull on attracting many scientists of promise to the Institute.

From John von Neumann, widely credited with inventing the programmable computer, to J. Robert Oppenheimer, lead architect of the atomic bomb, to the surprise arrival of poet and playwright T.S. Eliot - the Institute’s first Artist in Residence, Sally Marlow gets beneath the skin of some of its rich history and its extraordinary ethos, wondering how the weight of the past plays out on those bright minds there today.

As a scholar herself at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London, Sally knows that space and time to think is becoming increasingly challenged, So what happens when you turn thinkers loose from the constraints of a traditional academic institution?

And amidst the Institute’s hotbed of string theorists, she seeks answers to Einstein’s biggest, most tantalising question of all - whether there's a grand, all-embracing theory, a unified theory of everything, that will complete our understanding of the laws of the universe.

Featuring interviews with Robbert Dijkgraaf, Director of the IAS, Myles Jackson, Professor of History of Science, Joan Scott Professor Emerita in the School of Social Science, particle physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed, Freeman Dyson, retired theoretical physicist, historian George Dyson , Christina Sormani, Professor of Maths at City University New York, archivist Casey Westerman and composer and former artist in residence Derek Bermel.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b09kqg6l)
Cornerstones

Flint

The writer Alan Garner sparks with flint, the stone that, perhaps more than any other, has enabled human civilisation. It's a stone that has featured in some of his novels, such as Red Shift, where the same Neolithic hand axe resurfaces across different times to haunt his characters. And it is time and evolution that he looks at in this essay: "My blood walked out of Africa ninety thousand years ago. We came by flint. Flint makes and kills; gives shelter, food; it clothes us. Flint clears forest. Flint brings fire. With flint we bear the cold."

Alan's essay is the first of five Cornerstones this week in which different writers reflect on how a particular rock shapes both people and place.

Music and Art in Josquin's Age: Branching Out

Donald Macleod is back at the National Gallery with Andrew Graham-Dixon to consider how Josquin and the painters of Northern Europe were extending their influence.

The humanist Cosimo Bartoli described Josquin as the Michelangelo of Music. A master of polyphonic choral writing, Josquin was as widely admired in his own lifetime as posthumously. While Josquin was a dominant force in music, the Franco-Flemish area with which he’s associated, also produced some remarkable painters, who, like Josquin and his fellow composers, exported their style, technical accomplishments and influence across Europe. In a series to mark the 500th anniversary of Josquin’s death, Donald Macleod visits the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square with art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon, to build a picture of Josquin’s music and the places he lived and worked, which also stimulated painters to produce equally outstanding Art.

In between times, Josquin may have had an association with the royal courts of King René in Aix-en-Provence and Louis XI of France, before working for the influential Sforza family in Milan and becoming the first maestro di cappella for Ercole d’Este in Ferrara.

As Josquin progresses from church musician to employment at a royal establishment, Donald Macleod and Andrew Graham-Dixon return to the National Gallery to see how painters from Northern Europe were extending their spheres of influence. The paintings they talk about are available on the Radio 3 website.

I am still looking for a work with as dangerous a fascination, with as terrible and sweet an infinity as Tristan,’ Nietzsche wrote of Wagner’s great love tragedy. A story about longing and yearning, about an unresolved and unresolvable love, expressed in music that famously denies us resolution until its very final bars, the opera still exerts the same fascination today. Glyndebourne Music Director Robin Ticciati conducts an international cast in a concert performance marking 60 years of the company’s appearances at the Proms.


TUE 22:15 Between the Ears (b082k79m)
Tomorrow Never Knew

Fifty-five years since the release of The Beatles' album Revolver, their music still casts a long shadow over the people of Liverpool.

For many growing up and working in Liverpool during the 50s and 60s, The Beatles have cast a long shadow. They breathed the same air, inhabited the same streets and felt the same promise of a new, postwar culture. The story of the 'Fab Four' has been told and told again. But for a young couple like Gwen and her ex-soldier husband Ken, and young people like Barrie (a biology teacher who taught sex education to thousands of 'Scousers' before moving to Manhattan) and Keith (the son of a bookie's runner and Cavern member), the experiences of the 60s formed the basis of their lives - and all played out to a Beatles soundtrack.

The album Revolver confirmed The Beatles' transition from young lovable moptops to maturer, somewhat troubled artists. In a collage of music, voices and location atmospheres, Tomorrow Never Knew accompanies Gwen, Barrie and Keith through the intervening years and, simultaneously, retraces the band's origins to an encounter at a fete in a field next to St Peter's Church, Woolton, with some of those who were there.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b09kqgpd)
Cornerstones

Lewisian Gneiss

The writer Sara Maitland conjures with a rock of ages, Lewisian gneiss. Two-thirds the age of the earth itself, and the oldest stone in the UK, it makes up parts of the Northwest Highlands and the Western Isles. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about rock, place and landscape.

Sara reflects on how the gneiss began its slow journey across the face of the earth more or less where Antarctica is today. It is still moving northwards, at about the same speed as our nails grow. 'Gneiss' comes from the German word meaning to sparkle, and Sara wonders whether it's this quality that convinced Neolithic builders to construct the Callanish stone circle on Lewis from this distinctive, ancient stone.

The other Cornerstones essays broadcast on Radio 3 this week hears different writers reflecting on how other rocks shape landscapes and us, such as flint, North Sea oil and gas, gypsum, which is the main constituent of plaster, and the clay bricks that define our urban landscapes.

Josquin and Art

Josquin and Art in Northern Italy

Once more at the National Gallery, to see two works by Leonardo da Vinci, Donald Macleod and art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon line up information on Josquin and Leonardo da Vinci, who were both employees of the ruling Sforza family. The paintings can be viewed on the Radio 3 website.

The humanist Cosimo Bartoli described Josquin as the Michelangelo of Music. A master of polyphonic choral writing, Josquin was as widely admired in his own lifetime as posthumously. While Josquin was a dominant force in music, the Franco-Flemish area with which he’s associated, also produced some remarkable painters, who, like Josquin and his fellow composers, exported their style, technical accomplishments and influence across Europe. In a series to mark the 500th anniversary of Josquin’s death, Donald Macleod visits the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square with art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon, to build a picture of Josquin’s music and the places he lived and worked, which also stimulated painters to produce equally outstanding Art. To accompany the series the paintings they discuss can be viewed on the Radio 3 website.

Considering his fame, it’s surprisingly difficult to map Josquin’s life. His birthdate was possibly 1450 or perhaps 1455 and it’s thought he was a choirboy at the collegiate church of St. Géry in Cambrai. Documents show he died in 1521, by which time he was probably in his seventies. He spent his last years as provost of the Collegiate church of Notre Dame in Condé sur l’Escaut, a town near Saint Quentin, right on the border with what’s now Belgium. In between times, Josquin may have had an association with the royal courts of King René in Aix-en Provence and Louis XI of France, before working for the influential Sforza family in Milan and becoming the first maestro di cappella for Ercole d’Este in Ferrara.

Arriving in Italy, it seems Josquin was employed by Cardinal Ascanio Sforza, a man of considerable influence. Music was evidently generously funded and flourishing in Milan in the 1480s, but how were other branches of the Arts faring?

LSO St Luke's Artist Focus Series (2/4)

Ian Skelly presents the second of four concerts recorded earlier this summer at LSO St Luke's in London, featuring four exceptional British musicians. Today the spotlight is on the clarinet player and composer Mark Simpson, who is joined by pianist Richard Uttley. The concert opens with music by Debussy. His Rhapsody was written as an examination piece but is full of impressionistic colours and textures. The duo include a work written by Mark himself in 2006: 'Lov(escape)', which is sandwiched between two works commissioned by Mark, music by Edmund Finnis and Gavin Higgins.

The concert ends with Weber's show-stopping piece, the flamboyant Grand Duo Concertant, full of virtuosic melodic writing for both clarinet and piano.

Conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner

Sir John Eliot Gardiner makes his 60th Proms appearance directing his own Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in Handel’s vividly theatrical Dixit Dominus – a concerto for choir that blazes with virtuosity and colour. It’s paired with Bach’s Easter cantata Christ lag in Todes Banden – a fiery, dramatic setting of Luther’s popular hymn. Mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg is the soloist in the young Handel’s cantata of praise to the Virgin Mary, Donna, che in ciel, containing music the composer later borrowed for his opera Agrippina.


WED 22:00 Sunday Feature (m000g67v)
Queen of Technicolor

Famed for playing fiery, feisty characters and the great beauty that would see her dubbed ‘Queen of Technicolor’, Irish actress Maureen O’Hara had a complex relationship with Hollywood.

On the one hand, she became one of the biggest stars of the 1940s and 50s thanks to gaudy swashbucklers and her frequent collaborations with director John Ford and lifelong friend John Wayne, with whom she starred in Ford’s 1952 classic ‘The Quiet Man’

However, she came to deeply resent being cast for her beauty and striking looks and longed for the serious ‘character’ roles of her early career, launched by English actor Charles Laughton, who had cast as Esmerelda in the 1939 epic ‘The Hunchback Of Notre Dame’

One hundred years on from her birth, Marie-Louise Muir explores how O’Hara fought against the men who controlled her life, took on the Hollywood gossip industry single-handedly – and successfully - and spoke out against the casting couch culture 70 years before the #metoo movement.

In Boise Idaho, Marie-Louise meets Maureen’s grandson Conor, who shares personal memories of his grandmother and some of his vast collection of memorabilia, including love letters from John Ford sent during the filming of ‘The Quiet Man’

In Los Angeles, O’Hara’s friend and biographer Johnny Nicoletti explains why Maureen was never afraid to fight her corner, even against some of the movie industry’s most powerful people, while author Cari Beauchamp frames O’Hara in the wider Hollywood story, which had once been a hub of creative, powerful women before 'the men with the money took over'.

Long-term friend Stefanie Powers, who starred in McClintock! (1963) alongside Maureen and John Wayne, remembers a woman fiercely proud of her Irish roots who had little time for the Hollywood life, while ‘Little Women’ star Saoirse Ronan reflects on Maureen’s legacy and influence on the current generation of young Irish actors.

Archive recordings of Maureen herself and extracts from her most celebrated films also appear throughout this compelling portrait of a true Hollywood icon 100 years after her birth.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b09kqgyx)
Cornerstones

North Sea Oil and Gas

The writer Esther Woolfson contrasts the solidity of Aberdeen, the 'Granite City', with the decline of the North Sea oil and gas industry, on which its economy has so relied since the 1970s. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about rock, place and landscape.

Author of 'Field Notes from a Hidden City', about her encounters with Aberdeen's wildlife, Esther reflects on the city's relationship with the North Sea hydrocarbons industry, and how much the city has been affected by the waning oil boom. She contrasts the city's big, public granite Victorian edifices with the slow creation in past millennia beneath the seabed of the oil and gas hydrocarbons which have powered the modern world.

Among the other Cornerstones essays this week, the writer Alan Garner reflects upon flint, the stone that has enabled human civilisation, and Sara Maitland considers Lewisian gneiss, so much a rock of ages that it is two-thirds the age of the earth itself.

Josquin and Art

Josquin and Art in Rome

Donald Macleod and art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon return to London's National Gallery to look at the work of artists active in the time when Josquin sang in the papal chapel.

The humanist Cosimo Bartoli described Josquin as the Michelangelo of Music. A master of polyphonic choral writing, Josquin was as widely admired in his own lifetime as posthumously. While Josquin was a dominant force in music, the Franco-Flemish area with which he’s associated, also produced some remarkable painters, who, like Josquin and his fellow composers, exported their style, technical accomplishments and influence across Europe.

Josquin appears in papal records as a singer in the choir from June 1489. He would have sung in the Sistine Chapel around forty times a year, surrounded by friezes commissioned by some of the leading artists of the period. The paintings mentioned in the programme can be seen online on the Radio 3 website.

20th-Century British Film Music

Live at the BBC Proms: the BBC Concert Orchestra and Principal Conductor Bramwell Tovey perform classic British film scores, celebrating Malcolm Arnold on the centenary of his birth.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall in London.
Presented by Martin Handley.

Malcolm Arnold's rumbustious score for Hobson's Choice matches perfectly the wonderful, blustery performance of Charles Laughton in the title role; and he illuminates the mischievous antics of the naughty schoolgirls in his sparking score for St Trinian’s. Doreen Carwithen and husband William Alwyn are featured alongside highly regarded classic Walton and Vaughan Williams scores. We'll also hear excerpts from The Skull, written by the queen of horror film music Elisabeth Lutyens, the first British woman composer to write for a full length feature film; and, 50 years after his death, Alan Rawsthorne's brooding and dark Cruel Sea Prelude.

Carwithen, arr Philip Lane Overture – Men of Sherwood Forest
Arnold, arr Christopher Palmer Hobson’s Choice – Concert Suite
Rawsthorne, arr Philip Lane The Cruel Sea - Prelude and Nocturne
Walton Escape Me Never Suite

8.15pm
Live Interval: Matthew Sweet, the presenter of Radio 3's Sound of Cinema, shares his knowledge of film music focusing particularly on the career of Malcolm Arnold, born 100 years ago this October.

Inside Stories

Author Carlo Gebler has spent nearly three decades working in the Northern Ireland prison system as a teacher of creative writing.

He's been in all the prisons there, including the notorious Maze/Long Kesh H-Blocks, where he worked with inmates on everything from basic literacy to Open University degrees.

Now Carlo wants to know if prison arts and education has made any difference to the lives of those he taught. Through meeting those attending classes in the education and skills section of HMP Magilligan on Northern Ireland's north coast - and catching up with some of the former prisoners he worked with over many years - Carlo explores the true role of arts and education in punishment and rehabilitation.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b09kqh7m)
Cornerstones

Gypsum and Alabaster

The artist and archaeologist Rose Ferraby gets to grips with something that is always around us, but which we almost never stop to consider: gypsum, the chief constituent of the plaster on the walls around us. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about how rock, place and landscape affects us.

Gypsum's use dates back to at least the ancient pyramids of Egypt. Rose explains how gypsum, being highly soluble, is responsible for the notorious sinkholes around the city of Ripon, frequently causing subsidence and damage to homes. She also considers alabaster, a soft, luminous stone composed of gypsum, and which was used to stunning effect for medieval memorials and sometimes even in place of stained glass in windows.

Among the other Cornerstones essays this week, the writer Alan Garner takes flint, the stone that has enabled human civilisation, and Esther Woolfson contrasts Aberdeen's granite solidity with the decline of the North Sea oil and gas industry, on which its economy has relied for the last 40 years.

Josquin and Art

Josquin and Art in Ferrara

Donald Macleod and art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon are back in the National Gallery to look at the work of Cosimo Tura, an artist in Ferrara, where Josquin was Maestro di Cappella.

The humanist Cosimo Bartoli described Josquin as the Michelangelo of Music. A master of polyphonic choral writing, Josquin was as widely admired in his own lifetime as posthumously. While Josquin was a dominant force in music, the Franco-Flemish area with which he’s associated, also produced some remarkable painters, who, like Josquin and his fellow composers, exported their style, technical accomplishments and influence across Europe. In a series to mark the 500th anniversary of Josquin’s death, Donald Macleod visits the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square with art historian Andrew Graham-Dixon, to build a picture of Josquin’s music and the places he lived and worked, which also stimulated painters to produce equally outstanding Art. To accompany the series the paintings they discuss can be viewed on the Radio 3 website.

Considering his fame, it’s surprisingly difficult to map Josquin’s life. His birthdate was possibly 1450 or perhaps 1455 and it’s thought he was a choirboy at the collegiate church of St. Géry in Cambrai. Documents show he died in 1521, by which time he was probably in his seventies. He spent his last years as provost of the Collegiate church of Notre Dame in Condé sur l’Escaut, a town near Saint Quentin, right on the border with what’s now Belgium. In between times, Josquin may have had an association with the royal courts of King René in Aix-en Provence and Louis XI of France, before working for the influential Sforza family in Milan and becoming the first maestro di cappella for Ercole d’Este in Ferrara.

The court at Ferrara had a strong reputation for the excellence of its court musicians, and as a leading and highly influential musician, Josquin was highly sought after, but where did art fit in? The paintings Donald and Andrew mention can be seen on the Radio 3 website.

LSO St Luke's Artist Focus Series (4/4)

Ian Skelly introduces the fourth and final concert in a series recorded at LSO St Luke's in London in June, featuring hugely talented British musicians. Benjamin Grosvenor has been described as "one in several million" and today he treats us to music by Robert Schumann and Ravel. Schumann's Kreisleriana was written after a character in one of ETA Hoffmann’s stories, each short movement showing a different side to his character, and was one of Schumann's favourite of his own compositions. Ben follows this with one of the most formidable works of the piano repertoire, Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit. It's inspired by a set of poems that tell of a Persian medieval character called Gaspard, the man in charge of the dark and mysterious treasures of the night.

Presented by Ian Skelly.

Ravel: Gaspard de la Nuit

FRI 22:00 Sunday Feature (m0009jzk)
The Hidden Reservoir

More than two decades on from the signing of the Good Friday Belfast Agreement, estimates suggest around a quarter of the population in Northern Ireland continues to be affected by psychological trauma arising from the Troubles. While politicians still can't agree on how to deal with the legacy of the conflict, for many victims and survivors, the past can't just be left behind.

Author Carlo Gebler believes Northern Ireland is sitting on a hidden reservoir of pain. But as a teacher of creative writing in some of Northern Ireland’s toughest prisons, he has witnessed first hand the transformative role the arts can play in enabling positive change. Now Carlo looks at some of the arts based initiatives aimed at promoting peace-building and reconciliation in Northern Ireland and asks they’re helping to heal a society still in pain.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b09kqhbp)
Cornerstones

Clay Bricks

The poet Fiona Hamilton contrasts the different states of clay before and after it's baked hard. The satisfying tactile quality of clay squished in the hand, compared to the dry ordinariness of a brick. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about how rock, place and landscapes affect us.

Mud bricks are as old as civilisation, and have been used throughout the world, but in England they underpinned the Industrial Revolution, enabling the rapid, cheap construction of mills, factories, terraced housing and the bridges and viaducts of an expanding rail network. Whilst bricks are mundane and ubiquitous, they derive from the deposits left across large parts of England after the last Ice Age, and so are surely the youngest 'rock' of all.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000z72j)
Space Afrika’s Mixtape

Verity Sharp shares a mixtape from electronic duo Space Afrika, aka Joshua Reid and Joshua Inyang. Lifelong friends, they’ve become key players in Manchester’s experimental scene known for their genre-splicing productions. They describe their sound as being made up of overlapping moments, weaving experimental ambience with dub and techno, samples and field recordings. Their new album Honest Labour, named after a legendary patriarch from Inyang's Nigerian family tree, features hazy loops, found sounds and vocal incantations. Their exclusive mixtape for Late Junction reflects their influences, from hazy post-punk and ambient soundscapes, to early grime experimentation.

Elsewhere in the show Verity shares reissued Turkish folk songs from singer Tülay German, as well as Congolese electronics from Kampala-based DJ and producer Oyisse. There’ll be jazz combined with traditional Mongolian music from Ulaanbaatar-raised Munich-based vocalist Enji, and brand new minimal meditations from Sarah Davachi on Mellotron, organ and harpsichord.
