9.30am Building a Library

Mark Simpson compares recordings of Richard Strauss's Eine Alpensinfonie and chooses his favourite.

The epic Alpine Symphony is Strauss's vivid evocation of the thrills and spills of a day out in his beloved Bavarian Alps, including dangerous moments and a glacier on the way up to a spectacular view from the summit. On the way down there's a violent thunderstorm and at the end, as the sun sets and night falls, the deep, emotional satisfaction of having completed an arduous and exhausting journey. The 1915 tone poem thrillingly tests an orchestra, at once collectively, its individual sections and its principal players. And it also tests a conductor who has to convincingly marshal a score calling for 130-plus musicians including 34 brass players (with 12 offstage horns) and a percussion section stocked with, among other things, wind machine, thunder machine and cowbells. Spare a thought, too, for the recording engineers...

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0011kr9)
Between tradition and evolution in Scotland

Kate Molleson presents a special episode of Music Matters which explores the line between tradition and innovation in Scotland's musical life.

We hear from the Canadian piper, composer and arranger Jack Lee, winner of the 2021 Glenfiddich Piping Championship held at Blair Castle, as he reflects on the challenges of preparing for what is the world’s premiere piping competition; we speak to competition’s judge of the Fear an Tighe category – Bob Worrall – about the boundaries and creative possibilities of music making and attire; and the piper, performer, and BBC Scotland presenter Gary West discusses, amongst other things, why the competition had no women finalists this year.

Kate meets the columnist and arts critic for the Scotsman, Joyce McMillan, and Professor of Architectural History and Theory, Ian Campbell, on location at Calton Hill in the heart of Edinburgh – site of the Royal High School, which has been abandoned for decades – to hear about recently approved plans to create a new centre for culture and education in one of the city’s most iconic buildings.

As the School of Scottish Studies Archives celebrates its 70th year, Kate is joined by the singers Steve Byrne and Julie Fowlis, and the Scottish writer, folklorist, ethnologist, broadcaster, and singer Margaret Bennett, to assess the archive’s role in the preservation and expansion of Gaelic and Scots culture today.

And, the principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Maxim Emelyanychev, tells Kate about the ensemble's role in music making across Scotland, describes how he navigates fluidly between the world of period instruments and traditional orchestras, and shares the story of his own journey into the profession.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000msn1)
Percussionist Michael Doran on collaboration and car horns

Mick Doran’s many years as principal percussionist at English National Opera have given him a unique view of the musical world, whether he’s down in the opera house orchestra pit, teetering offstage on a ladder, or quietly absorbing the music while counting bars rest.

Today Mick’s musical choices range from the crystal-clear diction of Dennis Noble singing Rossini in English, to the spot-on ensemble of Count Basie’s big band. He also shows how Prokofiev understood the true power of the side drum, and talks about the profound effect Dvorak’s Eighth Symphony had on him when he was being treated for a life-threatening illness.

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

SAT 17:00 J to Z (m0011krk)
Donald Brown

Julian Joseph presents an interview with his former mentor, pianist and composer Donald Brown, who shares some of the music that inspires him. Revered by musicians and those in the know, Brown has had a major influence on the jazz world. Over the course of his 50-year career he’s done everything from playing in Art Blakey’s iconic Jazz Messengers, touring with Donald Byrd and Freddie Hubbard, working in production at soul music giant Stax Records and producing eight of sax great Kenny Garrett’s albums. He’s been equally influential as an educator. In the mid-80s he taught at Berklee College of Music, mentoring then students including Danilo Pérez, Javon Jackson, Roy Hargrove and Julian Joseph himself. Here he chooses tracks that defined his thinking as a composer, including a soul-raising song by Earth Wind and Fire full of ingenious orchestration.

Also in the programme, Julian compiles a London Jazz Festival sampler, with highlights and tips from this year’s line-up.

Produced by Thomas Rees for Somethin’ Else.

La Damnation de Faust

Vienna Philharmonic at the 2021 Salzburg Festival: Berlioz' La Damnation de Faust.

Over the next two weeks Opera on 3 presents two French takes on the Faust legend, in which the hero exchanges his soul for unlimited knowledge. Today: a concert presentation of Berlioz’s compelling and imaginative version - like the masterpiece it's based on, wild and grandiose but also intimately beautiful.

The cast is an ideal line-up of stars: tenor Charles Castronovo sings the doomed and besotted Faust, with the dazzling mezzo-soprano Elina Garanca as his forsaken lover Marguerite and bass Ildar Abdrazakov as the malevolent Méphistophélès. Alain Altinoglu conducts.

Presented by Tom Service, in conversation with William Mival.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0011kv4)
Jamila Gavin

Jamila Gavin was born in the foothills of the Himalayas; her Indian father and English mother met as teachers in Iran and married in Mumbai. By the age of 12, she’d lived in an Indian palace in the Punjab, a bungalow in Poona - and a terraced house in Ealing, west London. Ealing was where the family settled in 1953; Jamila went on to study at London’s Trinity College of Music, and to become a sound engineer and then a director in television. She didn’t start to write until her late thirties, beginning a career distinguished by many awards for her novels, plays and short stories – around 50 books in all. It’s a rich world of myths and fairy-tales, orphans and adventures, ranging from 15th-century Venice to the mountains of India. She’s best known for Coram Boy, her prize-winning novel, later staged at the National Theatre, about the Foundling Hospital – to which Handel gave the royalties from his Messiah.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Jamila Gavin reveals the shocking story, which inspired her to write her first book for children. Her books deal with serious themes: particularly slavery, both historic slavery and people-trafficking now. Reading them, you can forget that these are children’s books; but, she says, any experiences which children suffer should also be experiences they can read about.

Jamila Gavin’s playlist includes Handel’s Messiah, Tippett’s A Child of Our Time, Schubert, Brahms, Stockhausen - and her favourite Night Raga.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0011kv8)
The Borrowers

Taking other people's music and using it for your own purposes might look like the very opposite of creative originality. But down the centuries, from the parody masses of the middle ages and the habitual borrowings of the Baroque, through to 21st-century digital sampling, the greatest musical minds have done just that.

Tom Service looks into the hows, whys and copyright pitfalls of musical borrowing with the help of legal expert and historian Olufunmilayo Arewa and composer and sound designer Pascal Wyse.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000j2bl)
Gratitude

Rory Kinnear and Pandora Colin read diary extracts from 1945, recalling visits to see the royal family waving from the balcony of Buckingham Palace and the pubs extending their licensing hours for a programme exploring gratitude on Remembrance Sunday. We hear from Hadley Freeman’s book House of Glass, recalling the trains sent from France to America laden with gifts after the US had sent France food trains in the second world war. Gratitude to medical staff is much on our minds at the moment so we picture Florence Nightingale, depicted in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem Santa Filomena ‘A lady with a lamp shall stand / In the great history of the land’. Plus poems about our feline friends and the benefits of childhood piano lessons - as well as a thank you letter from Audrey Hepburn to the composer Henry Mancini. And in a reading by Clive James, a poem in which he gives thanks that "the book of my enemy has been remaindered".

The soundtrack includes Beethoven, writing in thanks for the restoration of his health after illness, a very grateful Pharaoh created by Verdi and The Kinks, who are just thankful for The Days. It also includes a short extract from Extract from The NHS Symphony by Alex Woolf which was recorded for broadcast as an episode of Between the Ears on Radio 3.

Producer: Georgia Mann

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0011m4h)
Afterwords: Simone de Beauvoir

Of the reception of The Second Sex, the seminal book of feminist philosophy that launched 'second-wave' feminism, Simone de Beauvoir said, "Well, it is not my fault if, particularly in France, whenever we talk about women, we instantly think about sex. This is precisely because women have been reduced, by men, to being what they mainly are for men, which is almost exclusively something sexual."

De Beauvoir's position was simply stated, in line with a philosophical position that existence precedes essence: "one is not born but becomes a woman". De Beauvoir herself became a formidable figure in the world of philosophy, literature and politics. It is this iconic image - 'brand Beauvoir' - that has dominated in the thirty-five years since her death and which this episode of Afterwords seeks to deconstruct.

Through archive from 1949 onwards and through the words of those who knew her (such as the writer and former diplomat Claudine Monteil who lives within sight of de Beauvoir's grave) and those who've studied her work (the philosopher and de Beauvoir biographer Kate Kirkpatrick, Professor Ursula Tidd of Manchester University and American philosopher Kathryn Sophia Belle), an intimate, nuanced portrait of Simone de Beauvoir emerges - a woman who embraced the 'matter of being a human being' and modelled new ways of engaging ethically with the world.

SUN 23:00 A History of Black Classical Music (m000j96f)
A Great and Noble Music

In this second programme of this series, in which British composer Eleanor Alberga charts the contribution that black composers have made to the story of western classical music, the focus is America, and how “black pride and identity” have helped to shape American classical music from the turn of the 20th century to the present day.

In the early 1890s, Antonin Dvorak was invited to the country to help establish an American national music. “With the negro melodies of America”, he said, “I discover all that is needed for a great and noble school of music”. There were several black classical composers who emerged at this time, and their music is often characterised by the use of spirituals; an example is the music of William Levi Dawson.

“The history of black people in America can never be divorced from the story of slavery”, and Eleanor continues her story with a look at the impact on American culture of the ‘Northern Migration’ of black people from the south and the emergence of the Harlem Renaissance. She features music by Lawrence Freeman, William Grant Still, Margaret Bonds, Julia Perry and Margaret Price.

There can be no denying that the ‘black experience’ has proved an important catalyst for expression amongst black American composers, but as Eleanor is at pains to point out, this is “a story of composers who, like myself, just happen to be black”. It is a not sub-genre of composition; the contribution that black classical composers make to the music of America is as broad as music itself. She foregrounds contrasting examples of American classical music from composers such as Adolphus Hailstork, Florence Price, George Walker, Julius Eastman, Jeffrey Mumford and Jonathan Bailey Holland.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0011lm9)
Carla Bley (b 1936)

An Unorthodox Education

Jazz composer Carla Bley encounters the New York club scene of the 1950s.

With Donald Macleod and jazz critic and writer Kevin Le Gendre.

One of the most original voices in jazz, composer, arranger, performer and bandleader Carla Bley has been determinedly pursuing her own musical path for more than 60 years. Her back catalogue of some fifty plus recordings tell the story of a musician who's responded in her own unique style to all the current trends, from free and experimental jazz in the 60s and 70s to 80s soul, blues and R&B. In later decades, she's written for and created big bands recalling the musical landscapes of Count Basie and the Duke and in the last 20 years, she's refined a distilled, intimate style for smaller chamber ensembles, in particular performing in a trio with her life partner, bassist Steve Swallow and the British saxophonist Andy Sheppard. Little wonder then, her fellow musicians affectionately call Bley 'Countess Bleysie' and 'Bleythoven'. Featuring a selection of recordings suggested by Carla Bley, Donald Macleod and Kevin Le Gendre follow Bley's musical adventuring from her early days writing for Paul Bley and Gary Burton, to her latest album for the Carla Bley Trio, released in 2020.

Arriving in New York and still in her teens, Bley landed a job as a cigarette girl at the famous jazz club "Birdland". Having had only a rudimentary musical training to that point, the clubs became her learning ground, as she soaked up the atmosphere, listening intently to all the jazz greats, among them Count Basie, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Stan Getz, Charles Mingus and Thelonious Monk.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m000cz35)
Beneath the Night

The Great Sky Above

From the dawn of time, the night sky has captivated human imagination. Over five essays, astronomer Dr Stuart Clark gives his personal perspective on how we draw meaning from the stars.

Our history has been shaped by the night sky. We have worshiped it, used it for practical purposes such as time keeping and navigation, enchanted it with stories of heroes and gods and sought to link ourselves to it in both magical and scientific ways. In recent decades, we have even taken our first small steps to explore worlds beyond the Earth.

Stuart has never known a time when he wasn't utterly captivated by the darkness and the pinpoints of light embedded within it. As a young child he would gaze out of his bedroom window in rural Hertfordshire and wonder at the meaning of the stars.

Stuart argues that we use those distant realms as a mirror onto which we project our hopes and dreams, fears and anxieties. Our search for meaning in the night sky convinces him that looking upwards in wonder is one of the indelible hallmarks of what makes us human.

Each essay explores different aspects of our cultural understanding of the night sky. They all include practical advice on how listeners can look up and make sense of the darkness.

At the same time, she was reinforcing her artistic independence through the formation of the New Music Distribution Service.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0011l35)
Tragedy, Comedy and the Rhine

Principal Conductor Ryan Bancroft leads the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in three highly contrasting pieces. Brahms wrote his Tragic Overture as a direct response to his Academic Festival Overture, and it is the antithesis to the earlier work in every way, depicting a nameless hero in his ultimately doomed struggle against his fate. To lighten the mood, Brahms's dramatic work is followed by one of Mozart's most well-loved piano concertos, his twenty-first – a work characterised by its technical difficulty and lightness of tone, which is redolent of his comedic operas. The Orchestra will be joined by American pianist Jonathan Biss as soloist. The concert concludes with Schumann's magnificent paean to the Rhine, his Third Symphony. The Rhine inspired some of the greatest romantic works of art, and Schumann in his turn fell in love with the river, its surrounding lands, and the people who lived there. It led him to create one of the truly great symphonies, full of the majestic energy that its subject inspires.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas and recorded in St. David's Hall on 12th of November.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0011m4m)
Carla Bley (b 1936)

The Romantic Years

Jazz composer Carla Bley heads off in a soulful direction in the 80s

With Donald Macleod and writer and jazz critic Kevin Le Gendre.

One of the most original voices in jazz, composer, arranger, performer and bandleader Carla Bley has been determinedly pursuing her own musical path for more than 60 years. Her back catalogue of some 50 plus recordings tell the story of a musician who's responded in her own unique style to all the current trends, from free and experimental jazz in the 60s and 70s to 80s soul, blues and R&B. In later decades, she's written for and created big bands recalling the musical landscapes of Count Basie and the Duke and in the last 20 years, she's refined a distilled, intimate style for smaller chamber ensembles, in particular performing in a trio with her life partner, bassist Steve Swallow and the British saxophonist Andy Sheppard. Little wonder then, her fellow musicians affectionately call Bley 'Countess Bleysie' and 'Bleythoven'. Featuring a selection of recordings suggested by Carla Bley, Donald Macleod and Kevin Le Gendre follow Bley's musical adventuring from her early days writing for Paul Bley and Gary Burton, to her latest album for the Carla Bley Trio, released in 2020.

After her experimental projects of the 70s, and leading a big band, a decade on Bley released a series of albums that draw on R&B and Motown. It caused a big stir, and a certain degree of confusion among the fans of her earlier work as to her musical direction.

Haydn Plus: Trio Karenine

Hannah French presents the second of this week's Lunchtime Concerts, each taking Joseph Haydn as a starting point and exploring the wealth of his chamber music alongside his huge influence on many composers. Today the focus is on the piano trio genre, given by the young French ensemble, Trio Karenine. The trio were formed in 2009 in Paris, and take its name from Tolstoy’s beautiful and emotionally honest heroine. The trio's performances and recordings have received high critical acclaim. In today's concert they begin with a charming trio by Haydn, and Korngold's Op.1, a lushly rich piano trio, written when the composer was only 12 years old. Between those works, Trio Karenine play Schubert's mesmerically beautiful Notturno D.887.

Hannah French presents this concert, which was recorded at LSO St Luke's in September.

Vietnam, ecological worries and poverty and suffering inspired the lyrics in Marvin Gaye's 1971 album What's Going On. Written as a song cycle from the point of view of a war vet returning home, it was inspired in part by the letters he was receiving from his brother from Vietnam and from his own questions following the 1965 Watts riots. The Nu Civilization Orchestra is performing their version of the album at the London Jazz Festival tomorrow. Matthew Sweet is joined by jazz journalist Kevin Le Gendre, musician Gary Crosby, Dr Althea Legal-Miller - Senior Lecturer in American History and Culture at Canterbury Christ Church university and poet Roy McFarlane

Beneath the Night

Cosmic Revelations

From the dawn of time, the night sky has captivated human imagination. Over five essays, astronomer Dr Stuart Clark gives his personal perspective on how we draw meaning from the stars.

Our history has been shaped by the night sky. We have worshipped it, used it for practical purposes such as time keeping and navigation, enchanted it with stories of heroes and gods and sought to link ourselves to it in both magical and scientific ways. In recent decades, we have even taken our first small steps to explore worlds beyond the Earth.

Stuart has never known a time when he wasn't utterly captivated by the darkness and the pinpoints of light embedded within it. As a young child he would gaze out of his bedroom window in rural Hertfordshire and wonder at the meaning of the stars.

Stuart argues that we use those distant realms as a mirror onto which we project our hopes and dreams, fears and anxieties. Our search for meaning in the night sky convinces him that looking upwards in wonder is one of the indelible hallmarks of what makes us human.

Each essay explores different aspects of our cultural understanding of the night sky. They all include practical advice on how listeners can look up and make sense of the darkness.

Melissa Harrison’s Listening Chair

Elizabeth handpicks the best new ambient, electronic, and post-classical music and revels in the spaces between. This week she invites the novelist and nature writer Melissa Harrison to sit in Unclassified’s listening chair to describe a piece that transports her to another place. Melissa has been in and around dance music for the last 30 years, increasingly turning towards ambient soundworlds. Her writing - including the award-winning novel All Among the Barley - connects deeply to the English countryside, and her Nature Notebook column in The Times is an evocative diary of her encounters with the natural world. Her Listening Chair selection comes from Canadian artist Ian William Craig - known for using broken tapes in his compositions - and Melissa describes how the lack of control this brings has been an inspiration for her.

Elsewhere in the show, Elizabeth plays a track from Manchester greats the Durutti Column’s album A Paean to Wilson, which gets a deluxe reissue on coloured vinyl. And there's new music from Polish cellist Resina.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0011m4r)
Carla Bley (b 1936)

Two Can Make Three

Jazz composer Carla Bley' finds a new musical pathway, this time, in trio form.

With Donald Macleod and writer and jazz critic Kevin Le Gendre.

One of the most original voices in jazz, composer, arranger, performer and bandleader Carla Bley has been determinedly pursuing her own musical path for more than 60 years. Her back catalogue of some 50 plus recordings tell the story of a musician who's responded in her own unique style to all the current trends, from free and experimental jazz in the 60s and 70s to 80s soul, blues and R&B. In later decades, she's written for and created big bands recalling the musical landscapes of Count Basie and the Duke and in the last 20 years, she's refined a distilled, intimate style for smaller chamber ensembles, in particular performing in a trio with her life partner, bassist Steve Swallow and the British saxophonist Andy Sheppard. Little wonder then, her fellow musicians affectionately call Bley 'Countess Bleysie' and 'Bleythoven'. Featuring a selection of recordings suggested by Carla Bley, Donald Macleod and Kevin Le Gendre follow Bley's musical adventuring from her early days writing for Paul Bley and Gary Burton, to her latest album for the Carla Bley Trio, released in 2020.

In 1994 saxophonist Andy Sheppard joined regular musical partners Carla Bley and Steve Swallow on tour. It was a move that would see Bley develop new confidence as a pianist, refining and honing her famously distilled style, and it was the start of a creative partnership that has continued following Bley's treatment for cancer in 2018.

Haydn Plus: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet

The final concert in the Haydn Plus series recorded at LSO St Luke's in September. Each of the concerts have taken Haydn's achievements as the starting point and look at his wide-reaching influence. Today, the multi-award-winning pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet gives a recital full of grace, lyricism and wit, starting with one of Haydn's solo keyboard sonatas. He follows Haydn with a sonata by a composer often called 'the father of the piano', Muzio Clementi. The concert ends with great flourish as Bavouzet performs Liszt's virtuosic Grosses Konzert Solo.

Presented by Hannah French.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0011llc)
Bath Mozartfest 2021

An international cast of BBC New Generation Artists play works by Schubert, Schumann and Mozart in the historic setting of the Assembly Rooms in Bath, as part of this year's Bath Mozartfest. As well as Schumann's impassioned Fantasy Pieces, and Schubert's early fragment for String Trio, pianist Elisabeth Brauss performs Mozart's charming Variations on "Ah vous dirais-je Maman" which many will recognise as the tune for the nursery rhyme, "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star", and the ensemble unite in Mozart's piano quartet in E flat major. Published in 1786, the quartet didn't catch on immediately and the publisher felt it was too difficult to appeal to an amateur market. Despite that cool initial reception, its genial outlook and natural appeal has ensured its rightful place as a cornerstone of the repertoire for piano quartet.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m000czr8)
Beneath the Night

Above the Night

From the dawn of time, the night sky has captivated human imagination. Over five essays, astronomer Dr Stuart Clark gives his personal perspective on how we draw meaning from the stars.

Our history has been shaped by the night sky. We have worshiped it, used it for practical purposes such as time keeping and navigation, enchanted it with stories of heroes and gods and sought to link ourselves to it in both magical and scientific ways. In recent decades, we have even taken our first small steps to explore worlds beyond the Earth.

Stuart has never known a time when he wasn't utterly captivated by the darkness and the pinpoints of light embedded within it. As a young child he would gaze out of his bedroom window in rural Hertfordshire and wonder at the meaning of the stars.

Stuart argues that we use those distant realms as a mirror onto which we project our hopes and dreams, fears and anxieties. Our search for meaning in the night sky convinces him that looking upwards in wonder is one of the indelible hallmarks of what makes us human.

Each essay explores different aspects of our cultural understanding of the night sky. They all include practical advice on how listeners can look up and make sense of the darkness.

Producer: Richard Hollingham


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0011llh)
Authentically Plastic’s Mixtape

From her hotel room in Utrecht during Le Guess Who Festival, Jennifer Lucy Allan shares a mixtape from one of the performers - Authentically Plastic of the Ugandan dance collective Nyege Nyege. Celebrating outsider music from around Uganda and beyond, Nyege Nyege put an emphasis on experimental club music and extreme electronics. Following their set at the Hakuna Kulala club night at Le Guess Who this weekend, the DJ and producer Authentically Plastic takes over mixtape duties for Late Junction.

With influences including dancehall, Afrofuturism and acid techno, Authentically Plastic’s sound is densely layered and high energy, having been honed at the Kampala club night they run with their queer dance collective ANTI-MASS. Their mixtape for Late Junction features selections from South African kwaito music, Glaswegian post-punk, recordings of royal court music from 1950s Uganda and plenty of heavy rhythms from the Nyege Nyege scene.

Elsewhere in the show Jennifer shares spoken word from American visual artist Alice Knowles, there’s DIY dub-influenced sounds from singer Brenda Ray and a cover of The Police from the Western Sahel courtesy of musician Hamadth Kah.
