John explains how he came to work with the great Ennio Morricone who wrote the score for 'The Thing'.

SAT 17:00 J to Z (m0010pj2)
Pee Wee Ellis, Madeleine Peyroux

Kevin Le Gendre presents live music from the late saxophonist and composer Pee Wee Ellis who died last month, aged 80. A highly gifted composer, Ellis worked as James Brown’s musical director and was the mastermind behind Brown’s timeless power anthem ‘Say It Loud (I’m Black and I’m Proud)’. As well as performing with Brown, he went on the play with the likes of Van Morrison, Ginger Baker and Ali Farka Touré as well as leading his own band, the Pee Wee Ellis Assembly. Here we hear highlights of a concert recorded live in Hamburg with the NDR Big Band in 2015.

Also in the programme, we hear from the internationally renowned singer and songwriter Madeleine Peyroux. Likened to the voices of jazz greats Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, Peyroux’s dusky, unmissable tone has captured the minds and souls of listeners for the last 30 years. Here she shares some of the music that has inspired her, including one of her deepest influences, Billie Holiday.

Produced by Thomas Rees for Somethin' Else.

Mitridate, re di Ponto

Kate Molleson and Martin Handley introduce Mozart's Mitridate, Re di Ponto, recorded in 2017 at the Royal Opera House in London.

In this highly acclaimed production, Christophe Rousset conducts the ROH Orchestra and chorus, as well as a stellar cast lead by Michael Spyres in the title role, Albina Shagimuratova as Aspasia, Bejun Mehta as Farnace and Salome Jicia as Sifare.

Quiet Contours

Corey Mwamba presents the best in adventurous improvised music. This week features pianist Aman Mahajan’s musical responses to his mother’s poetic reflections on quietude. The vocalist Mankwe Ndosi gives voice to what is felt, and not said in a contained tempest of free improvisation with BodyMemOri trio (Tomeka Reid on cello, Davu Seru on drums and Sylvia Bolognesi on bass). Plus, the multi-instrumentalist Maeve Schallert creates an immersive experience with the remnant sounds of a performance - easily discarded feedback from guitar, violin and more are used to build an atmospheric sound world of droning, subtle noise.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0010nwy)
Mark Solms

Mark Solms is a neuroscientist who has spent his whole career investigating the mysteries of consciousness. His research throws light on some of the most difficult questions of all: how does the mind connect to the body? Why does it feel like something to be you? Born in Namibia and educated in South Africa, he came to Britain in his late twenties to avoid military service under the apartheid regime. He made his name with research into what happens in the brain when we’re dreaming; then he startled his scientific colleagues by training as a psychoanalyst, something which, he says, “put me at odds with the rest of my field”. He’s now very unusual in holding eminent positions within both psychoanalysis and scientific research. He’s the author of six books – his latest is "The Hidden Spring" – and he divides his time between London and Cape Town, where he also pursues his other career... as a wine-maker.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Mark Solms reveals the traumatic childhood event which made him determined to become a doctor, when his brother jumped off a roof and suffered a major brain injury. He discusses the latest research on dreams, and how working with brain-damaged people can teach us about the nature of consciousness. And he tells the story of how he tried to rescue his family vineyard from the wider historical trauma of the apartheid past.

Mark chooses music which he hopes will illuminate the nature of consciousness itself: Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata, Bach, Ligeti, Chopin, and Talking Heads.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0010nx8)
Malcolm Arnold, the Tortured Composer

Sir Malcolm Arnold has given joy and pleasure to millions of people all over the world through his music. His screen credits alone numbered far over one hundred, including iconic films such as The Belles of St. Trinian’s, Whistle Down the Wind, Hobson’s Choice, The Sound Barrier, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness and - earning Arnold an Oscar - The Bridge on the River Kwai. Then there are his frequently performed works for the concert hall, including The Padstow Lifeboat, the Scottish, English and Cornish Dances, the Guitar Concerto, and the list goes on. Yet the nine symphonies of Malcolm Arnold have had a very different reception over the years. In this centenary year since the composer’s birth, Simon Heffer champions Arnold as one of the greatest British symphonic composers, and explores why these works are not better known.

Arnold’s professional career started as a trumpeter for a number of leading London orchestras. It was here that he honed his knowledge and craft of orchestration. Interviewed for this feature are musicians who worked with Arnold later in his career, including composer Joseph Horovitz, cellist Julian Lloyd Webber and conductor Andrew Penny. All can hear different influences in Arnold’s music, but they all agree that Arnold also had his own very distinctive voice. So why have Arnold’s symphonies been largely neglected? One view is that when Arnold was writing, there was a certain snobbery within the music industry that composers should either write film music or works for the concert hall, but not both. Heffer questions whether this could be one reason for the neglect of Arnold’s symphonies. Another possible reason is Arnold’s innate sense of fun, such as taking part in the Hoffnung Festival. Could this side of his character to entertain, also be a cause for his more serious works not being taken seriously?

As Simon Heffer delves further, another far more personal theme emerged. Could Malcolm Arnold’s own mental health problems have had something to do with how his symphonic works were received? His symphonies span the trajectory of Arnold’s own life through two divorces, alcoholism, to Arnold being hospitalised and ending up in care. Arnold had a reputation for being jovial, the life and soul of the party, but also for being difficult and rude. Heffer discusses this more personal side of Arnold with his eldest child, Katherine Arnold, who also helps us to explore the biographical nature of these symphonic works. With the assistance of psychiatrist Professor Veronica O’Keane, she gives us her opinions on Arnold the man, and how this may have impacted upon his perception by others.

One advocate for the Fifth Symphony is the conductor Sakari Oramo, who in 2021 gave the BBC Proms debut of this work. Oramo feels that this specific symphony is Arnold’s masterpiece, as does Simon Heffer, who throughout this programme, reinforces the importance of Arnold as one of Britain’s greatest composers of symphonies.

SUN 23:00 Barrie Kosky's Musical Stages (m0010nxd)
Theatrical Handel

‘Triumph, joy, madness, death, battle, jealousy, rage - what more do you want in a night at the opera?' Barrie Kosky explores not the staged operas but Handel's oratorios. The Bible stories of Handel’s oratorios were not allowed to be staged in their day, but Kosky believes them to be intensely theatrical, not just because of their pageantry and brilliance but for the composer's ability to plumb the depths of characters in his music and finely describe the human condition. Barrie Kosky reminisces on his production of Saul with Christopher Purves, the gloriously visual word-painting depicting the plagues on Egypt as well as the pageantry of Solomon, the human drama of Jephtha and the spiritually uplifting sound-world of Messiah.

Handel: Extracts from Solomon
Arrival of the Queen of Sheba; Thrice bless'd be the king; From the East unto the West

Handel: Extracts from Saul
How excellent Thy Name, O Lord; Welcome welcome mighty king; David his ten thousand slew; With rage I shall burst; Dead March

Handel: Extracts from Jephtha
Scenes of horror, scenes of woe: How dark O Lord are Thy decrees; Waft her angels

Handel: Extracts from Israel in Egypt
He gave them hailstones; He sent a thick darkness over all the land: He smote all the first-born of Egypt: But the waters overwhelmed their enemies

Handel: Extracts from Messiah
How beautiful are thy feet; Hallelujah Chorus

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000b8hr)
Malcolm Arnold (1921- 2006)

Arnold's Many Personalities

Donald Macleod journeys through some of the contrasting sides of Sir Malcolm Arnold and his music.

Sir Malcolm Arnold was a prolific composer, writing music in many different genres ranging from nine symphonies and over 20 concertos, to chamber music, music for brass bands and nearly 120 film scores. These many works for film include classics such as Hobson’s Choice, Whistle Down the Wind, the St Trinian’s films, and The Bridge on the River Kwai for which he won an Oscar. He composed works for some of the very top performers in the music industry including Julian Bream, Julian Lloyd Webber, Larry Adler, Frederic Thurston, Benny Goodman, and collaborated with the likes of Deep Purple and Gerard Hoffnung. His music crossed social boundaries and gave pleasure to so many, and yet his personal life was marred by alcoholism, depression and periods of hospitalisation. He’s been described as a larger than life character, outrageous, Falstaffian, Bohemian, and some of the stories which circulated about Arnold have become the stuff of legend.

Across the week, Donald Macleod traces Sir Malcolm Arnold’s life through exploring five different influences upon the composer’s music, from his love of Cornwall and Ireland, to his own mental and emotional wellbeing. In today’s programme, the focus is upon the many different and contrasting sides of Arnold’s character and its impact upon his music.

Some of Arnold’s best-loved scores may be full of fun, such as his music for the Hoffnung festivals, but his works could also have a much darker character as well. The slow movement in his second symphony depicts lamenting shades of Mahler, and his first string quartet has influences of Bartok. In his early career, Arnold also led a double life between trumpeter, and composer. The composer won the day, and yet despite his often highly turbulent personal life, Arnold could compose music that has stood the test of time. His ever-popular first set of English Dances for example, was composed not long after he had been released from an asylum.

Walk with Amal

Milk of the World, by Sema Kaygusuz

Little Amal is a 3.5m high puppet who has been walking nearly 9000 kilometres across Europe this summer in recognition of the journey made by thousands of child refugees every year in search of family members, safety and a new home. To mark this extraordinary project, five award-winning European writers have written short stories inspired by Amal’s walk. Each one has responded imaginatively to the puppet’s journey through their own country, reflecting the hopes and fears of both Amal herself and the people she encounters on her way.

As she strides through the stories and across Europe, Amal takes on many guises. She’s a refugee child from a camp on the Turkish Syrian border, who sets off in search of her mother, accompanied by an alter-ego puppet guide; she’s befriended by a seagull in Greece; she strikes fear into the heart of a small, lonely boy in Italy; becomes the target for a kidnapping in Belgium…

The Walk has been created by Good Chance Theatre, who started the theatre in the Calais Jungle and Handspring Puppet company, who created the puppets for War Horse. Little Amal began her walk in Turkey at the end of July and, helped by a team of puppeteers, performers, local people and arts organisations, she’ll walk nearly 9000km across Europe, finishing in Manchester in November. She arrives in the UK, at Folkestone, on 19 October.

This episode is Milk of the World by Sema Kaygusuz. A young refugee girl is rescued from a camp on the Syrian Turkish border by a huge puppet, who becomes her protector and alter ego as they set off to find the girl’s mother.

Sema Kaygusuz is one of Turkey’s leading fiction writers, whose novels and short stories have been widely translated and won many awards, including an English PEN award for Every Fire You Tend, which also won the TA First Translation Prize for her translator, Nicholas Glastonbury, who translated this story. The story is read by Sirine Saba.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000b8hl)
Malcolm Arnold (1921- 2006)

Arnold's Celtic Connections

Donald Macleod explores the influence of Cornwall and Ireland upon Malcolm Arnold and his music.

Sir Malcolm Arnold was a prolific composer, writing music in many different genres ranging from nine symphonies and over 20 concertos, to chamber music, music for brass bands and nearly 120 film scores. These many works for film include classics such as Hobson’s Choice, Whistle Down the Wind, the St Trinian’s films, and The Bridge on the River Kwai for which he won an Oscar. He composed works for some of the very top performers in the music industry including Julian Bream, Julian Lloyd Webber, Larry Adler, Frederic Thurston, Benny Goodman, and collaborated with the likes of Deep Purple and Gerard Hoffnung. His music crossed social boundaries and gave pleasure to so many, and yet his personal life was marred by alcoholism, depression and periods of hospitalisation. He’s been described as a larger than life character, outrageous, Falstaffian, Bohemian, and some of the stories which circulated about Arnold have become the stuff of legend.

Across the week, Donald Macleod traces Sir Malcolm Arnold’s life through exploring five different influences upon the composer’s music, from his eclectic interest in different kinds of musical genres, to his own mental and emotional wellbeing. In today’s programme, the focus is upon the influence of Cornwall and Ireland upon Arnold’s life and creativity.

Sir Malcolm Arnold spent much time holidaying in Cornwall and eventually living there. It would become a significant home for Arnold, often providing the inspiration and setting to compose many works including his Four Cornish Dances, Three Sea Shanties and Fantasy for Guitar. Ireland would also provide a similar role for Arnold, although his troubled personal life also had a great influence upon his music including the Eighth Symphony, and his Philharmonic Concerto.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0010q88)
Schmidt's Third Symphony

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Jonathan Berman present three different perspectives of Austria-Hungary: Kurt Schwertsik, Ernst von Dohnányi, and Franz Schmidt. The three composers were born less than 40 miles apart and all have fiercely nationalistic voices, yet all have strikingly different musical identities. Dohnányi was born in Pozsony, modern day Bratislava, during the Austro-Hungarian empire and remained fiercely Hungarian. Tonight the Orchestra will be joined by cellist Raphael Wallfisch for his Konzertstück, a masterwork in symphonic cello writing. Vienna born Kurt Schwerzik is instigator of the Third Viennese School, and is the voice of modern day Austria. The evening begins with his Epilog zu 'Rosamunde', a paean to Schubert and the lost space between Schubert's music and that of today. These two composers are bought together by Franz Schmidt, whose Schubert inspired Third Symphony closes the evening. Schmidt was born like Dohnányi in Pozsony, but moved to Vienna and fell utterly under the spell of the city, where his music has been championed ever since. The third symphony is the most cheerful of the four which he wrote, but the lightness of theme obscures a work of staggering harmonic writing.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, and recorded in Hoddinott Hall on the 7th of October.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0010q8d)
Walk with Amal

Of Girls and Gulls, by Auguste Corteau

Little Amal is a 3.5m high puppet who has been walking nearly 9000 kilometres across Europe this summer in recognition of the journey made by thousands of child refugees every year in search of family members, safety and a new home. To mark this extraordinary project, five award-winning European writers have written short stories inspired by Amal’s walk. Each one has responded imaginatively to the puppet’s journey through their own country, reflecting the hopes and fears of both Amal herself and the people she encounters on her way.

As she strides through the stories and across Europe, Amal takes on many guises. She’s a refugee child from a camp on the Turkish Syrian border, who sets off in search of her mother, accompanied by an alter-ego puppet guide; she’s befriended by a seagull in Greece; she strikes fear into the heart of a small, lonely boy in Italy; becomes the target for a kidnapping in Belgium…

The Walk has been created by Good Chance Theatre, who started the theatre in the Calais Jungle and Handspring Puppet company, who created the puppets for War Horse. Little Amal began her walk in Turkey at the end of July and, helped by a team of puppeteers, performers, local people and arts organisations, she’ll walk nearly 9000km across Europe, finishing in Manchester in November. She arrives in the UK, at Folkestone, on 19 October.

Of Girls and Gulls by Auguste Corteau tells of a scavenging seagull who bonds with the huge puppet-girl Amal as she is foraging for food on a rubbish tip outside Athens: both are far from home and in need of friendship.

Auguste Corteau has written novels and short stories for adults and children, and has been awarded the Greek National Book Award for Children’s Literature and the IBBY Prize for Best Children’s Novel. His novel The Book of Katarina is published in English by Parthian Books and available as an audiobook.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000b8hw)
Malcolm Arnold (1921- 2006)

Arnold's Hoover and Floor Polisher

Donald Macleod traces some of the many diverse musical influences upon Sir Malcolm Arnold’s works.

Sir Malcolm Arnold was a prolific composer, writing music in many different genres ranging from nine symphonies and 120 concertos, to chamber music, music for brass bands and nearly one hundred and 20 film scores. These many works for film include classics such as Hobson’s Choice, Whistle Down the Wind, the St Trinian’s films, and The Bridge on the River Kwai for which he won an Oscar. He composed works for some of the very top performers in the music industry including Julian Bream, Julian Lloyd Webber, Larry Adler, Frederic Thurston, Benny Goodman, and collaborated with the likes of Deep Purple and Gerard Hoffnung. His music crossed social boundaries and gave pleasure to so many, and yet his personal life was marred by alcoholism, depression and periods of hospitalisation. He’s been described as a larger than life character, outrageous, Falstaffian, Bohemian, and some of the stories which circulated about Arnold have become the stuff of legend.

Across the week, Donald Macleod traces Sir Malcolm Arnold’s life through exploring five different influences upon the composer’s music, from his love of Cornwall and Ireland, to his own mental and emotional wellbeing. In today’s programme, the focus is upon the many eclectic influences upon Arnold’s own music.

Sir Malcolm Arnold didn’t like to be boxed into being one type of composer. His range of works testify to this, including both traditional symphonies, to more obscure works including a concerto for Eater, Waiter, Food and Orchestra. His Organ Concerto demonstrates the influences of Handel and Bach, and Jazz permeates through his Concerto for Two Pianos (3 Hands). A Grand, Grand Overture is very different, and not only displays his mastery as an orchestrator, but includes some rather unusual soloists, three hoovers and a floor polisher.

Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo leads a season opening like no other. At its heart is Johannes Brahms’s symphony of light and shadows – music that tells of the magnificence of creation but with a ribbon of mourning tied around its sleeve; Brahms’s Symphony No. 2 resembles the most beautiful of sunsets followed by the most invigorating of new dawns.

In 1968, the composer Ruth Gipps wrote a concerto for a newly qualified young horn player embarking on a career. That horn player happened to be her son. His mother’s gift is an ethereal, poetic and virtuosic piece, played here, in the centenary of the composer’s birth, by former BBC Young Musician finalist Ben Goldscheider. To open, Oramo conducts the UK premiere of Betsy Jolas’s ‘meticulously charming’ (The Boston Globe) collage in homage to Bach’s hometown, Leipzig.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0010prs)
Walk with Amal

Hide and Seek, by Lorenza Pieri

Little Amal is a 3.5m high puppet who has been walking nearly 9000 kilometres across Europe this summer in recognition of the journey made by thousands of child refugees every year in search of family members, safety and a new home. To mark this extraordinary project, five award-winning European writers have written short stories inspired by Amal’s walk. Each one has responded imaginatively to the puppet’s journey through their own country, reflecting the hopes and fears of both Amal herself and the people she encounters on her way.

As she strides through the stories and across Europe, Amal takes on many guises. She’s a refugee child from a camp on the Turkish Syrian border, who sets off in search of her mother, accompanied by an alter-ego puppet guide; she’s befriended by a seagull in Greece; she strikes fear into the heart of a small, lonely boy in Italy; becomes the target for a kidnapping in Belgium…

The Walk has been created by Good Chance Theatre, who started the theatre in the Calais Jungle and Handspring Puppet company, who created the puppets for War Horse. Little Amal began her walk in Turkey at the end of July and, helped by a team of puppeteers, performers, local people and arts organisations, she’ll walk nearly 9000km across Europe, finishing in Manchester in November. She arrives in the UK, at Folkestone, on 19 October.

Hide and Seek by Lorenza Pieri is set in Genazzano, near Rome, where the children of the town are playing games to welcome Little Amal on her journey through Italy. But for Daniel, hiding on the steps to the castle to avoid being found and caught by the other children and their huge, terrifying visitor, the game threatens to be another humiliation in a long line.

Lorenza Pieri is a novelist, journalist and literary translator. Her first novel to appear in English, The Garden of Monsters, is published by Europa Editions.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000b8j0)
Malcolm Arnold (1921- 2006)

Arnold, the People's Composer

Donald Macleod traces Malcolm Arnold’s own interest in being a composer for the people.

Sir Malcolm Arnold was a prolific composer, writing music in many different genres ranging from nine symphonies and over 20 concertos, to chamber music, music for brass bands and nearly 120 film scores. These many works for film include classics such as Hobson’s Choice, Whistle Down the Wind, the St Trinian’s films, and The Bridge on the River Kwai for which he won an Oscar. He composed works for some of the very top performers in the music industry including Julian Bream, Julian Lloyd Webber, Larry Adler, Frederic Thurston, Benny Goodman, and collaborated with the likes of Deep Purple and Gerard Hoffnung. His music crossed social boundaries and gave pleasure to so many, and yet his personal life was marred by alcoholism, depression and periods of hospitalization. He’s been described as a larger than life character, outrageous, Falstaffian, Bohemian, and some of the stories which circulated about Arnold have become the stuff of legend.

Across the week, Donald Macleod journeys through Sir Malcolm Arnold’s life by exploring five different influences upon the composer’s music, from his love of Cornwall and Ireland, to his own mental and emotional wellbeing. In today’s programme, the focus is upon Arnold’s interest to be a composer for the people, and the music he composed away from the rigidity of the concert hall.

Malcolm Arnold had a passion for Cornwall, and one of his best-loved works, The Padstow Lifeboat, was composed for the launching of the new lifeboat in Padstow because the coxswain was a great brass band enthusiast. Arnold also wrote many works for brass bands, including a Fantasy. This was commissioned for the National Brass Band Championships in 1974, and as a test piece, received 19 first performances at the Royal Albert Hall. Arnold often composed for youth orchestras as well, although his dependence upon alcohol sometimes caused issues when working with young musicians.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0010q0y)
Walk with Amal

A Piece of Cake, by Nicolas Ancion

Little Amal is a 3.5m high puppet who has been walking nearly 9000 kilometres across Europe this summer in recognition of the journey made by thousands of child refugees every year in search of family members, safety and a new home. To mark this extraordinary project, five award-winning European writers have written short stories inspired by Amal’s walk. Each one has responded imaginatively to the puppet’s journey through their own country, reflecting the hopes and fears of both Amal herself and the people she encounters on her way.

As she strides through the stories and across Europe, Amal takes on many guises. She’s a refugee child from a camp on the Turkish Syrian border, who sets off in search of her mother, accompanied by an alter-ego puppet guide; she’s befriended by a seagull in Greece; she strikes fear into the heart of a small, lonely boy in Italy; becomes the target for a kidnapping in Belgium…

The Walk has been created by Good Chance Theatre, who started the theatre in the Calais Jungle and Handspring Puppet company, who created the puppets for War Horse. Little Amal began her walk in Turkey at the end of July and, helped by a team of puppeteers, performers, local people and arts organisations, she’ll walk nearly 9000km across Europe, finishing in Manchester in November. She arrives in the UK, at Folkestone, on 19 October.

A Piece of Cake by Nicolas Ancion catches up with the puppet in Belgium where two young men try to kidnap it to raise awareness of the death of a Kurdish child shot by a policeman, only to be abducted themselves by a group who want to give Amal a special Belgian welcome.

Nicolas Ancion is a novelist and scriptwriter who grew up in a puppet theater in Liege, Belgium. His work has been translated into a dozen languages and awarded several literary prizes. His novel “The Man Who Refused To Die” is published by Dis Voir Editions.

Karl Hyde’s Listening Chair

Elizabeth Alker surveys the landscape of contemporary ambient recordings, with songs that soothe, spiral, and soar.

She invites Karl Hyde, one half of the seminal electronic duo Underworld, into the Listening Chair, for a transportive and surprising selection. Far from the ecstasy of late-night dance floors, Karl’s pick is a haunting piece of choral music made famous by 2001: A Space Odyssey. Elsewhere, Helado Negro’s new album is full of bright, jubilant pop songs that have been smudged around their edges, and the DJ known as Ross From Friends delivers a record of soaring and emotional house music.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000b8j4)
Malcolm Arnold (1921- 2006)

Malcolm Arnold's Demons

Donald Macleod explores Malcolm Arnold’s personal demons, including alcoholism and subsequent breakdowns.

Sir Malcolm Arnold was a prolific composer, writing music in many different genres ranging from nine symphonies and over 20 concertos, to chamber music, music for brass bands and nearly 120 film scores. These many works for film include classics such as Hobson’s Choice, Whistle Down the Wind, the St Trinian’s films, and The Bridge on the River Kwai for which he won an Oscar. He composed works for some of the very top performers in the music industry including Julian Bream, Julian Lloyd Webber, Larry Adler, Frederic Thurston, Benny Goodman, and collaborated with the likes of Deep Purple and Gerard Hoffnung. His music crossed social boundaries and gave pleasure to so many, and yet his personal life was marred by alcoholism, depression and periods of hospitalisation. He’s been described as a larger than life character, outrageous, Falstaffian, Bohemian, and some of the stories which circulated about Arnold have become the stuff of legend.

Across the week, Donald Macleod journeys through Sir Malcolm Arnold’s life by exploring five different influences upon the composer’s music, from his love of Cornwall and Ireland, to his interest in being a composer for the people. In today’s programme, the focus is upon Arnold’s personal life including alcoholism, emotional and mental breakdowns, to periods in hospital and asylums.

Sir Malcolm Arnold had a dependence upon alcohol for much of his life. He also had a history of poor mental and emotional health, and at times was violent towards others. On many occasions, he was admitted to a hospital, or an asylum, and experienced insulin shock treatment, and electro convulsive therapy. His life was far from idyllic, and yet his music gave great pleasure to so many, including his film scores for Hobson’s Choice and The Sound Barrier, to what many consider his best symphony, the Fifth.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0010qnr)
Purcell and Handel live at Wigmore Hall

The English Concert directed by Kristian Bezuidenhout perform choral, instrumental and theatre music by Handel and Purcell.

Reading the chauvinistic tub-thumping of 'Why, why are all the muses mute?' is a dispiriting experience. But in combination with Purcell's ravishing music, the undistinguished, sycophantic text designed to flatter King James II is elevated to a level far beyond anything its anonymous author had a right to expect, including one of Purcell's finest ground bass arias, ‘Britain, thou now art great’.

James Bridges' prodigal extravagance left little of any lasting consequence but for the music he commissioned from Handel. It includes the masque Acis and Galatea and the oratorio Esther, written to be performed at his opulent mansion at Cannons, near Edgeware. And for the church on his estate, the Duke of Chandos also commissioned the 11 Chandos Anthems. In these Psalm settings for voices, wind, strings and organ, Handel often ingeniously recycles some of his older works to make new-minted music with all his customary brilliance for word-setting, including here, texts from Psalm 89.

Presented live from Wigmore Hall by Hannah French.

Walk with Amal

A Day at the Beach, by Emilienne Malfatto

Little Amal is a 3.5m high puppet who has been walking nearly 9000 kilometres across Europe this summer in recognition of the journey made by thousands of child refugees every year in search of family members, safety and a new home. To mark this extraordinary project, five award-winning European writers have written short stories inspired by Amal’s walk. Each one has responded imaginatively to the puppet’s journey through their own country, reflecting the hopes and fears of both Amal herself and the people she encounters on her way.

As she strides through the stories and across Europe, Amal takes on many guises. She’s a refugee child from a camp on the Turkish Syrian border, who sets off in search of her mother, accompanied by an alter-ego puppet guide; she’s befriended by a seagull in Greece; she strikes fear into the heart of a small, lonely boy in Italy; becomes the target for a kidnapping in Belgium…

The Walk has been created by Good Chance Theatre, who started the theatre in the Calais Jungle and Handspring Puppet company, who created the puppets for War Horse. Little Amal began her walk in Turkey at the end of July and, helped by a team of puppeteers, performers, local people and arts organisations, she’ll walk nearly 9000km across Europe, finishing in Manchester in November. She arrives in the UK, at Folkestone, on 19 October.

A Day at the Beach by Emilienne Malfatto takes place after the long journey through Europe. A young Syrian girl waits, exhausted, on the beach at Calais for the boat that she hopes will take her across the water to safety. Amal has nothing left to her except her memories of home, when she had parents, a family, a roof over her head, food on her plate and the ordinary worries of a small girl.

Emilienne Malfatto is a photojournalist, working between Iraq, France and Latin America. She won this year’s Prix Goncourt first novel prize for her novel ‘Que sur toi se lamente le Tigre’.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0010q4l)
Rubbish Music

It’s not just any old rubbish this week on Late Junction: Jennifer Lucy Allan dumpster dives to share music made from and inspired by the world of waste, rummaging through her bins to bring you music from instruments made of recycled materials and odes to waste management. As London’s Design Museum launches their exhibition asking how we can reinvent our relationship with waste, Late Junction explores how artists have made music with and about literal rubbish.

Embracing the concept of ‘one man's rubbish is another man's treasure’, there’ll be plenty of music made by instruments created from things others have thrown away, from the likes of the Congolese eco-friendly collective Fulu Miziki, sculptor of found objects Lonnie Holley, and the plastic-obsessed electronic duo Matmos. There’ll be field recordings from a Materials Recovery Facility in Massachusetts, as well as the sounds of British post-punk trio Trash Kit. Plus brand new releases elsewhere in the show, including György Ligeti reimagined by a chorus of teenagers with composer Marina Rosenfeld and fuzzy ambience from Nigerian sound artist and violist Ibukun Sunday.
