9.30am Building a Library: Hannah French’s Zelenka Survey

Hannah French surveys the key works works and recordings of Czech composer Jan Dismas Zelenka and chooses her favourite.

Zelenka was born in Central Bohemia in 1679 and, after his musical education in Prague and Vienna, he spent most of his professional life in Dresden. Much admired by Bach for the harmonic inventiveness of his counterpoint, and friends with Telemann, Pisendel and Weiss, Zelenka was considered one of the giants of the Baroque era. Zelenka's music is also inspired by Czech folk music and it was Smetana who is credited with rediscovering the music of his forebear during the 19th century.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0011bvp)
Alfredo Catalani: Edmea

All over the world, year in, year out, opera houses put on a handful of operas from the standard repertory. For 70 years, however, Wexford Festival Opera has bucked that trend and the unlikely setting of a small town on Ireland's southeast coast has become the destination for opera lovers who want to see the operas no one else will stage and to be the first to hear singers on the threshold of international careers.

Among this season's rarities is Alfredo Catalani's Edmea. Overshadowed by his greatest hit La Wally, Edmea was Catalani's penultimate opera, based on an Alexandre Dumas play and premiered at La Scala, Milan, in 1886. It has many of the customary elements of the genre: a vulnerable orphan (Edmea), a love triangle, mistaken identity, forced marriage, madness, a castle and suicide (one attempted; one successful). But it does have a happy ending of sorts, when Edmea is able to marry her true love Oberto after her unwanted husband Ulmo shoots himself.

Recorded last month and presented by Sean Rafferty.

Alfredo Catalani: Edmea

Acts 1 & 2

7.50 pm
Sean Rafferty talks to soprano Anne Sophie Duprels about the challenges of the title role and asks conductor Francesco Cilluffo about Catalani's place in Italian operatic history.

New Music Show COP26 Special

As the world gathers in Glasgow soon for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), seeking to bring about closer and binding agreements on action required to tackle the major environmental issues we face, the New Music Show will be in Glasgow too, seeking to reflect on how music can respond.

Featuring artists who have long brought climate and our earth into the heart of their work, we hear performances from composer and vocalist Laura Bowler and flautist Ruth Morley, electro-acoustic composer and sound artist Annie Mahtani, pianist and composer Xenia Pestova-Bennett with her Magnetic Resonator Piano and the Ligeti Quartet, at the forefront of new and contemporary music for more than a decade.

Presented by Kate Molleson.



SUNDAY 07 NOVEMBER 2021

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0011bvt)
Inner Rhythms

Corey Mwamba presents new music exploring creative freedom. Australian percussionist Abe Rounds presents music inspired by an old VHS film of his younger self aged four, expressing himself without inhibition. The film was sent to him by his father - the celebrated producer Victor Rounds. Tapping into those formative memories, he unleashes a joyful experience of kaleidoscopic percussion and rhythms drawing on his rich cultural heritages - he’s mixed Polynesian, Sephardic Jew, Iraqi and Hungarian. Another artist looking inwards is saxophonist Catherine Sikora, who invites listeners to re-evaluate conventional ideas about strength and weakness, through extended tonal explorations. Elsewhere in the programme, opera singer Alya Al-Sultani and turntablist Mariam Rezaei join forces in a live performance that gives a new voice to Middle Eastern poetry, hip-hop and noise.

Sarah Walker with guest Robbie Collin

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

Today amongst her many and varied choices Sarah discovers the range of colours to be found in music written for the piano. There’s intimacy in Lucy Parham’s interpretation of Schumann’s Piano Concerto, glittering playing by pianist Kathryn Stott, and an energetic rendition of Brahms’s First Piano Quartet, arranged for orchestra.

Plus, a jazz standard that takes us straight across the Atlantic…

At 10.30am Sarah invites film critic Robbie Collin to join her for the Sunday Morning monthly arts roundup, focusing on five cultural happenings around the UK that you can catch either online or in person during November.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0011clj)
Tamsin Edwards

In a special edition of Private Passions for COP26, Michael Berkeley talks to Dr Tamsin Edwards about her career as a climate scientist and her lifelong passion for music.

As a child, Tamsin wanted to be a concert pianist and she went on to play the clarinet, saxophone and double bass, and to sing in choirs. Music is still a vital part of her life but now she is one of our leading climate scientists, at King’s College London, studying the uncertainties of climate model predictions, particularly in relation to rising sea levels.

In 2018 she joined the author team for the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the UN body responsible for assessing the science related to climate change. Instantly recognizable with her trademark cropped blue hair, she is a passionate science communicator, blogging, writing for newspapers and frequently appearing on radio and television.

Tamsin tells Michael how performing music helped her to develop the confidence to speak about science to governments, corporations and the public. We hear part of a Beethoven sonata that brings back memories of the terror she felt playing it for her Grade 8 Piano exam. She chooses music by Liszt for her mother, a concert pianist, and we hear her late father playing the trumpet with his New Orleans jazz band.

And Tamsin talks movingly about her debilitating treatment for bowel cancer, paying tribute to the love and support of her partner, the television presenter Dallas Campbell, with piano music by Philip Glass.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m0011cln)
Who wrote Monteverdi's Coronation of Poppea?

The question of who wrote Monteverdi's last opera, The Coronation of Poppea, is a lot harder to answer than the old joke, 'Who wrote Beethoven's Fifth?' There's no evidence from Monteverdi's lifetime that he was involved with the opera at all. It seems likely that he did compose most of the music, but other composers probably contributed too – and there are at least five suspects in the frame. Lucie Skeaping turns detective to try to unravel the mystery.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0007c2f)
Temperatures Rising

From John Clare’s white woolsack clouds to the daydreaming figure under Meleager’s plane tree, summer days have long been a time for writers to wander into fantasies and idylls.

But summer can be a time for extreme weather too - cathartic storms and raging wildfires burst forth in the music of Vivaldi and the epic accounts of Imru’ al-Qais and Cassius Dio. And the fierce sun inspires a particular vividness in the African desert of H Rider Haggard and the noontime scene in southern India that Kamala Das conjures.

These extremes may have had an exotic appeal in the past; but now, they hint at what is likely to become far more familiar, as temperatures rise.

Pack your sunscreen and join readers Raad Rawi and Pearl Chanda in the hot landscapes of past, present and future, with music by Debussy, Orff and Jobim.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0011cm1)
A Tree Story

From forest to concert hall, a tree makes an incredible journey to become a beautiful sounding musical instrument. But why does it sound as it does? Is it the quality of the wood? The skill of the instrument builder? What part do the acoustics of performance spaces play?

Radio 3 presenter Martin Handley has played on his Great-Great-Grandfather’s violin since he was seven years old. He’s always admired its beauty and been intrigued by its provenance, which set him to wondering about the alchemy of the relationship between wood and the craftsmen who return it to a living thing.

To find out more, Martin joins violinist Christian Garrick, about whose instrument we know everything, and together they chart a journey backwards from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire’s Bradshaw Hall to visit the forests of Bavaria. While there, we also discover the surprising story of a little Alpine town that was the cradle of lute & violin-making 500 years ago.

Martin talks to the maker of Christian’s violin – John Dilworth – about the process of building instruments, and what is required from the raw materials. He also meets an acoustician, an engineer and a dendrochronologist who help reveal some of the science behind the music.

The final chapter takes us to forester Andreas Pahler, who lovingly sources the trees that will become countless instruments, the world over, and who takes us to the very spot where Christian’s violin was born.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0011cm5)
The Tempest

Drama on 3 presents a new, environmentally-inflected production of The Tempest to coincide with COP26 in Glasgow.

In The Tempest, Shakespeare's explores the relationship between humanity, the environment and our connection with nature. A Scottish cast is led by Ian McDiarmid as Prospero in this play of magic, romance and revenge, situated within the context of our current global climate crisis. Audiences are transported to Prospero's island of chaos and disorder; the island is 'full of noises' and the play’s cataclysmic opening storm is created out of news items about the climate emergency.

As Shakespeare’s most musical play, original Scottish music composed by Pippa Murphy interweaves throughout - to ethereal and magical effect, - enhanced by Ariel’s songs realised in binaural sound.

Cast:
Prospero ..... Ian McDiarmid
Caliban ..... Joseph Arkley
Sebastian ..... Maggie Bain
Gonzalo ..... Maureen Beattie
Stefano ..... Sandy Grierson
Antonio/Boatswain ..... John MacKay
Alonso ..... Forbes Masson
Ferdinand ..... Noof Ousellam
Trinculo ..... Owen Whitelaw

SUN 23:00 A History of Black Classical Music (m000j2bs)
The Blacke Trumpeter

The first programme of a three-part series in which composer Eleanor Alberga foregrounds the contribution that black composers have made to the story of western classical music through the ages, with examples of their music. Eleanor confesses that "in researching this series, much of the story has proved surprising to me as well”.

Eleanor begins her journey with story of John Blanke, a celebrated court trumpeter to Henry VII, who appears as “the blacke trumpeter” on the Westminster Tournament Roll, commissioned by the king to mark the birth of his son Henry in 1511. The programme considers the presence and position of black people within the European population since that time. She features the music of black composers in England and France from the 18th century, including Ignatius Sancho, JJO de Meude-Monpas and Joseph Boulogne, before crossing the Atlantic to the Southern States of America, to New Orleans, and the music of the “Creole Romantics”; musicians like Lucien-Léon Guillaume Lambert and Edmond Dédé. This first programme ends with Eleanor considering the impact that Dvorak’s historic visit to America made to black composers in the 1890s.

Music featured in this first programme includes:

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0011bmk)
Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842)

An Italian by Birth

Luigi Cherubini sets out to learn his craft, with an eye to a future career as a theatrical composer. With Donald Macleod.

An octogenarian when he died in 1842, Cherubini's long life places him alongside three giants of the age, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. When he was born in 1760, Mozart was four years old, and Haydn was in his thirties. Beethoven was born a decade after Cherubini. Standing among these luminaries, all of whom he admired, Cherubini was a composer, conductor, teacher, administrator, theorist and music publisher, who enjoyed a much higher standing in his own lifetime than his present day reputation might suggest. Beethoven and latterly Wagner are just two of a long list of notables who hugely admired his music. These days it's perhaps through his masses that many people come to his music, so it may be a surprise to discover that he followed the fashion of his day, and produced a considerable number of successful operas. This week Donald Macleod follows Cherubini's progress from his Florentine childhood to Paris, where he was to settle and see his theatrical ambitions realised, in addition to taking on the directorship of the Paris Conservatoire, a position that gave him considerable influence over successive generations.

Today Cherubini jumps at the chance to work with one of the biggest names in the operatic world, Giuseppe Sarti.

New Creatives

Thames Whale

An experimental sound programme by artist Joseph Bond.

Extraordinary reports of whales into the River Thames date back to the seventeenth century. Most recently, the northern bottlenose whale “Willy” (2006), “Benny The Beluga” (2018) and a juvenile minke whale (2021) have stirred a collective hysteria and highlighted nature’s precarious, yet persistent role in the hallucinogenic heart of London.

Richard Sabin (Principal Curator for Mammals at Natural History Museum, London) and Jessica Sarah Rinland (filmmaker ‘We Account The Whale Immortal’) weave their way through the cult of cetacean celebrity, British folklore and a living archive of whale bones. Where the sea transforms into a city, they probe the temporal, tidal space of the Thames, whales – ancient, alien and yet remarkably connected to humans – and the Londoner as witness.

Elsewhere, 23-year-old Londoner Abondance Matanda reads a specially commissioned eulogy for all those who have found themselves submerged in the city’s “big belly kingdom of concrete.”

Between the Ears showcases a selection of new audio creations by up-and-coming artists who work with sound. The artists have been commissioned by the ICA and the BBC as part of New Creatives and their subjects range from the science of bees, the legacy of Derek Jarman and preserving the Aids quilt.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0011cxg)
Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842)

Adventures in London

Cherubini made two visits to London, almost 30 years apart. Donald Macleod recounts the story of these experiences, one an artistic flop, the other wildly successful.

An octogenarian when he died in 1842, Cherubini's long life places him alongside three giants of the age, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. When he was born in 1760, Mozart was four years old, and Haydn was in his thirties. Beethoven was born a decade after Cherubini. Standing among these luminaries, all of whom he admired, Cherubini was a composer, conductor, teacher, administrator, theorist and music publisher, who enjoyed a much higher standing in his own lifetime than his present day reputation might suggest. Beethoven and latterly Wagner are just two of a long list of notables who hugely admired his music. These days it's perhaps through his masses that many people come to his music, so it may be a surprise to discover that he followed the fashion of his day, and produced a considerable number of successful operas. This week Donald Macleod follows Cherubini's progress from his Florentine childhood to Paris, where he was to settle and see his theatrical ambitions realised, in addition to taking on the directorship of the Paris Conservatoire, a position that gave him considerable influence over successive generations.

In 1786 as a fresh-faced 24-year-old Italian operatic hopeful, Cherubini arrived in London to take up the position of composer-in-residence at the King’s Theatre. He was all set to conquer the London stage, but it was a much harder nut to crack than he'd anticipated.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0011cxs)
Grace Williams, Benjamin Britten and Vaughan Williams

Jamie Phillips and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales present three giants of British music side-by-side; Benjamin Britten, Grace Williams and Ralph Vaughan Williams. The three were all united by the Royal College of Music, with the elder Vaughan Williams teaching his younger counterparts. Britten and Williams became good friends, keeping in contact throughout their lives, however their opinions of their teacher were starkly different - Grace saw him as one of her biggest influences, referring to him as "Uncle Ralph", whereas Britten was publicly contemptuous toward him. Nonetheless, all three composed some of the most remarkable music to come out of Britain in the 20th Century.

Britten's Prelude and Fugue is an intense work for string orchestra, in which all 18 players have individual lines, giving the fugue phenomenal drive and energy. Grace Williams' Violin Concerto is an exceptionally lyrical piece, whose central movement is built around the Welsh hymn tune Hen Ddarbi (Old Proverb), and Vaughan Williams' celebrated 5th Symphony is also highly melodic, but with the evocative spaciousness so remarkable in his music.

Recorded in Hoddinott Hall on 3rd November and presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas.

The Imperial War Museum Remembrance Discussion 2021

Cold, civil, world, uprising, conflict, war on terror: Anne McElvoy and her guests Elif Shafak, Christina Lamb, Lincoln Jopp and Hilary Roberts explore the impact of the words we use to describe conflict. The Imperial War Museum has just revamped its "Second World War" galleries with changed dates and a wider focus and Cold War history is being rewritten in the light of current politics. So this year's Remembrance discussion asks how does language affect attitudes to war?

Elif Shafak's latest novel The Island of Missing Trees explores the division of Cyprus.

Journalist Christina Lamb's books include Our Bodies, Their Battlefield: What War Does to Women and Farewell Kabul: From Afghanistan to a More Dangerous World and with Nujeen Mustafa she published The Girl from Aleppo: Nujeen's Escape from War to Freedom and with Malala Yousafzai she published I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban.

Hilary Roberts is the IWM's Senior Curator and Historian of Cold War and Late 20th Century Conflict.

Total War: A People’s History of the Second World War and The Holocaust by IWM curators Kate Clements, Paul Cornish and Vikki Hawkins an illustrated history of the Second World War, told with the help of personal stories from across the globe has been published to mark the re-opening of the IWM galleries.

Lieutenant-Colonel Lincoln Jopp MC (retired) discussed war and modern memory on Free Thinking https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b07jlbvp and at the Free Thinking Festival he debated decision making and quick reactions with Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson and Damon Hill https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08j9zsh

TUE 22:45 Between the Ears (m0011cxx)
New Creatives

Time is what keeps the light from reaching us

An essay in sound by artist Cassandre Greenberg.

Standing on Waterloo Bridge in 2021, the artist re-examines the personal impact of Derek Jarman’s final film, ‘Blue’ (1993). His celebrated experimental film is a poetic reckoning with his grief at the loss of friends, lovers and his own life as a result of Aids-related illnesses. ‘Time is what keeps the light from reaching us’ is an audio essay, sampling from the film itself, asking the question, what does it mean to review Jarman’s film without an image today? A re-view, in this case, might be defined by a multiplicity of looks; seeing again, anew, once more. As the artist finds out, ‘Blue’ casts its shadow over all they see. From the vantage point of many years, ‘Time is what keeps the light from reaching us’ is a cinematic vision; a long-distance double take.

Between the Ears showcases a selection of new audio creations by up-and-coming artists who work with sound. The artists have been commissioned by the ICA and the BBC as part of New Creatives and their subjects range from the science of bees, the legacy of Derek Jarman and preserving the Aids quilt.

Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842)

The Dawning of a Revolution

Cherubini's career as an operatic composer is temporarily suspended, as the terrifying events of the French Revolution take over Paris. With Donald Macleod.

An octogenarian when he died in 1842, Cherubini's long life places him alongside three giants of the age, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. When he was born in 1760, Mozart was four years old, and Haydn was in his thirties. Beethoven was born a decade after Cherubini. Standing among these luminaries, all of whom he admired, Cherubini was a composer, conductor, teacher, administrator, theorist and music publisher, who enjoyed a much higher standing in his own lifetime than his present day reputation might suggest.

These days it's perhaps through his masses that many people come to his music, so it may be a surprise to discover that he followed the fashion of his day, and produced a considerable number of successful operas. This week Donald Macleod follows Cherubini's progress from his Florentine childhood to Paris, where he was to settle and see his theatrical ambitions realised, in addition to taking on the directorship of the Paris Conservatoire, a position that gave him considerable influence over successive generations.

Within months of signing a new theatrical contract in 1792, France declared war on Austria and Prussia. Cherubini was going to need every ounce of his charm to survive the terrifying events that followed.

Tom Coult takes inspiration from images of "constructed natural spaces" around cities, drawing on stories from 9th century Japan and 14th century Italy as well as a visit from Queen Victoria to the very spot in which RHS Bridgewater now flourishes. Ravel brings a Fairy Garden to life at the end of his ballet about favourite fairy-tale characters, "Mother Goose" and the programme opens with music written for a real princess; Weill's Second Symphony written while he was in France in the 1930s was commissioned by the Princesse de Polignac, Winnaretta Singer, heir to the Singer sewing machine fortune and a generous patron of the arts.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (m0011cm8)
Dogs

New York best-selling author of "Inside of a Dog" Alexandra Horowitz gives us the dog's eye view of life, alongside sports broadcaster and dog owner Andrew Cotter, poet Dr Jason Allen-Paisant and literary expert Dr Joseph Anderton. The conversation chaired by Rana Mitter (not yet a dog owner), covers the lockdown fame of Labradors Olive and Mabel, canine narrators in fiction, and the legal status of dogs. Whilst Jason Allen-Paisant's poetry collection Thinking with Trees questions the assumptions dog owners make about their place in the landscape.

Dr Joseph Anderton teaches at Birmingham City University and has written Beckett's Creatures: Art of Failure after the Holocaust. His current project is a book called Writing Homelessness: Rough Sleeping in Contemporary British Fiction.

Dr Jason Allen-Paisant lectures at the University of Leeds and, in addition to his poetry collection Thinking with Trees, he is working on a book called Thinking with Spirits: Engaging Art and the Political through Aimé Césaire.

You can find out about the range of books from Alexandra Horowitz at https://alexandrahorowitz.net/

Andrew Cotter has published Dog Days: A Year with Olive and Mabel and Olive, Mabel and Me https://www.oliveandmabelbook.com/

WED 22:45 Between the Ears (m0011cmd)
New Creatives

Therianthropy

Therianthropy - an experimental sound programme by by Aladin Borioli.

Dr Randolf Menzel is a German neurobiologist who dedicated his life to the world of bees. At the beginning of his career, he was dreaming of becoming a bee. At nights, and sometimes during the day, he was transforming into his subject of research. These experiences helped him to build a better understanding of what it is like to be a bee, and gave him leads to his scientific inquiries. In return, his discoveries in the lab were enhancing his dreams. Dream worlds are a central part of human life. Neuroscience has shown that they are an important activity for human brain and its evolution, and not mere epiphenomena. Within these dreamlands, time is telescoped, it is distorted; offering a space to try specific hypotheses. Acting as a lullaby, the 14-minute piece mixes together a narrative, spoken by Randolf Menzel, and music. Just before going to sleep, listeners will experience Randolf Menzel’s dream and question if bees dream as well.

Between the Ears showcases a selection of new audio creations by up-and-coming artists who work with sound. The artists have been commissioned by the ICA and the BBC as part of New Creatives and their subjects range from the science of bees, the legacy of Derek Jarman and preserving the Aids quilt.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0011d13)
Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842)

Vienna, Haydn and Beethoven

Cherubini visits Vienna, where his operas are sell outs, and he meets two of the leading composers of the day, Haydn and Beethoven. With Donald Macleod.

An octogenarian when he died in 1842, Cherubini's long life places him alongside three giants of the age, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. When he was born in 1760, Mozart was four years old, and Haydn was in his thirties. Beethoven was born a decade after Cherubini. Standing among these luminaries, all of whom he admired, Cherubini was a composer, conductor, teacher, administrator, theorist and music publisher, who enjoyed a much higher standing in his own lifetime than his present day reputation might suggest. Beethoven and latterly Wagner are just two of a long list of notables who hugely admired his music. These days it's perhaps through his masses that many people come to his music, so it may be a surprise to discover that he followed the fashion of his day, and produced a considerable number of successful operas. This week Donald Macleod follows Cherubini's progress from his Florentine childhood to Paris, where he was to settle and see his theatrical ambitions realised, in addition to taking on the directorship of the Paris Conservatoire, a position which gave him considerable influence over successive generations.

After enjoying a series of triumphs on the Viennese stage, in 1806 Cherubini made a hasty retreat back to his home in Paris. The reasons behind this move are none too clear.

Being Human 2021

Deciphering Dickens' shorthand, how the national health service uses graphic art to convey messages, creating a comic strip from Greek myths: these are some of the events taking place at the annual Being Human Festival in which universities around the UK introduce their research in a series of public talks, walks, workshops and performances. Laurence Scott meets some of those taking part and discusses different ways of recording and presenting information from comics to coded notebooks, to a scheme which projected books onto the ceilings of hospitals, which made it possible for thousands of people with disabilities to read after the Second World War.

Dr Claire Wood is at the University of Leicester. Her event is called Cracking the Dickens Code.
Dr Anna Feigenbaum is at the University of Bournemouth. Her event is called Covid Comics and Me.
Dr Amanda Potter is at the Open University. Her event is called Greek Mythology Comic Writing Workshop.
Professor Matthew Rubery is at Queen Mary University of London. His event is called Projected Books for Veterans of the Second World War.
The Being Human Festival runs from November 11th to 20th https://beinghumanfestival.org/

Producer: Phoebe McFarlane.

Quilts of Love

Quilts of Love, by Tom Foskett-Barnes.

For the first time since it was initially displayed in Hyde Park in 1994, the UK Aids Memorial Quilt was unfolded in its entirety in July 2021. It features hundreds of hand-stitched, glue-gunned and collaged memorial panels. Each is the size of a grave plot, powerfully naming a generation of loved ones lost during the HIV/Aids epidemic in the 80s and 90s. The Quilt, with all its colours, materials and immense care and detail, is a heart-breaking monument of love for those departed, as well as a protest against the institutional failures of the period and the stigma surrounding HIV that still remains.

Colliding past and present, ‘Quilts of Love’ features interviews with Barton Friedland, Project Coordinator of the 1994 display, and the staff of The Food Chain, a frontline HIV charity that recently spearheaded the 2021 exhibition. The work pays homage to this stunning piece of visual and community art, but also the tireless work of the people who have made sure the stories behind the Quilts are preserved and the names it commemorates are never forgotten.

Between the Ears showcases a selection of new audio creations by up-and-coming artists who work with sound. The artists have been commissioned by the ICA and the BBC as part of New Creatives and their subjects range from the science of bees, the legacy of Derek Jarman and preserving the Aids quilt.

Ambient Inspirations at the London Jazz Festival

Elizabeth Alker journeys to the outer edges of ambient, electronic and post-classical music, and revels in the spaces between.

As the London Jazz Festival takes over corners of the capital once again, Elizabeth looks at the ongoing sonic conversation between improvised and ambient music – the rich evidence of which can be found punctuating this year’s line-up, with the harpist Alina Bzhezhinska channelling the spirit of Alice Coltrane, and Damon Albarn leading a joyous celebration of Tony Allen’s groundbreaking drum work. Elsewhere, the American poet and musician Moor Mother creates vivid hypnagogic soundscapes, haunted by half-memories from her country’s past, but radically anchored in this present moment.

Luigi Cherubini (1760-1842)

A Creator of New Paths

Cherubini survived years of political upheaval in France, which began with the 1789 storming of Bastille. Donald Macleod considers how he was able to manage and prosper.

An octogenarian when he died in 1842, Cherubini's long life places him alongside three giants of the age, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven. When he was born in 1760, Mozart was four years old, and Haydn was in his thirties. Beethoven was born a decade after Cherubini. Standing among these luminaries, all of whom he admired, Cherubini was a composer, conductor, teacher, administrator, theorist and music publisher, who enjoyed a much higher standing in his own lifetime than his present day reputation might suggest. Beethoven and latterly Wagner are just two of a long list of notables who hugely admired his music. These days it's perhaps through his masses that many people come to his music, so it may be a surprise to discover that he followed the fashion of his day, and produced a considerable number of successful operas. This week Donald Macleod follows Cherubini's progress from his Florentine childhood to Paris, where he was to settle and see his theatrical ambitions realised, in addition to taking on the directorship of the Paris Conservatoire, a position that gave him considerable influence over successive generations.

It was Cherubini's sheer versatility in repeatedly having to trim his musical sails that enabled him to fit in with whichever regime was in power at the time, on occasion with breathtaking speed.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (m0011d6d)
Bernardine Evaristo

Ian McMillan meets Booker Prize-winning author Bernardine Evaristo to explore her poetry, her essays and her fiction - to find out about her writing process and how it has evolved, her sources of inspiration and her influences.


FRI 22:45 Between the Ears (m0011d6g)
New Creatives

Ding Dong

An experimental performance by Leanne Shorley.

When the Present Moment comes knocking, Leanne wants nothing to do with her. She’s far too smiley and righteous, and she has some difficult questions which are best left unanswered. Besides, Leanne’s very busy scrolling through videos of dogs on her phone and eating biscuits, so she doesn’t really have the time. However, the Present Moment is persistent in her curiosity of the here and now, and refuses to stop dinging Leanne’s doorbell until she has her answers, forcing her away from the blissful euphoria of her phone (and her fridge) to face up to the uneasy prospect of some time without distraction.

Part poem, part surreal radio play, Ding Dong explores the difficulties of staying in the present through the mind of a millennial, and delves into why shutting off your senses with the content on your phone is far more appealing than opening your eyes to the discomfort of today (and even worse, the bleak uncertainty of tomorrow). Accompanied by a dreamlike score composed by Emma Barnaby.

Between the Ears showcases a selection of new audio creations by up-and-coming artists who work with sound. The artists have been commissioned by the ICA and the BBC as part of New Creatives and their subjects range from the science of bees, the legacy of Derek Jarman and preserving the Aids quilt.


FRI 23:00 J to Z (m0011d6j)
Live from the London Jazz Festival

Jumoké Fashola presents a special live edition of J to Z from the opening night of the EFG London Jazz Festival, with sets from some of the most exciting young players on the bill.

Leading the line-up is American piano star Christian Sands and his trio. Since his emergence in the 2000s, Sands has become a key figure on the international circuit, known for his blistering energy and virtuosity. In his teens he was mentored by the late great Billy Taylor and he’s since collaborated with Wynton Marsalis, Gregory Porter and Christian McBride, as the first-call pianist in McBride’s own trio. Here he performs music from his latest album, Be Water.

Joining him on stage at Pizza Express jazz club in Holborn are two UK talents. Dynamic trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey aka Ms Maurice opens the show with a groove-laden set. Best known for her work with KOKOROKO, Nérija and Little Simz, her contemporary London sound has echoes of 70s fusion with “a touch of West African sonic seasoning”.

And gifted drummer, composer and producer Romarna Campbell proves she’s one to watch with music that takes in both jazz and hip-hop influences.

Produced by Somethin’ Else for BBC Radio 3.
