The 1945 premiere was conducted by Prokofiev himself and the symphony has remained one of the composer's most popular works.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m00138fd)
From the Met

From the Metropolitan Opera in New York: Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts a new production of Fire Shut Up in My Bones, by Grammy Award–winning jazz musician and composer Terence Blanchard. His adaptation of Charles M Blow’s moving memoir was first performed in 2019 at the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.

Featuring a libretto by film-maker Kasi Lemmons, the opera tells a poignant and profound story about a young man’s journey to overcome a life of trauma and hardship.

Baritone Will Liverman stars as Charles, alongside soprano Angel Blue as Destiny, soprano Latonia Moore as Billie and Walter Russell III as Char’es-Baby.

This broadcast of the first opera by a Black composer ever to be performed by the Met is presented by Debra Lew Harder in conversation with Ira Siff.

SAT 22:00 New Music Show (m00138fg)
Enno Poppe's Prozession

Tom Service introduces some of the latest sounds in the world of new music including important new works from Lara Poe and Enno Poppe.
Finnish composer Lara Poe's Kaamos, is a ten-minute long orchestral exploration of the unique limbo between darkness and daylight whilst Enno Poppe's 50-minute Prozession - “Procession” - is a breathtakingly imaginative homage to the processional music of Berlioz and Mahler. But Poppe's work uses the orchestra - which includes electric guitars, trumpets and saxophones - with the utmost economy. The performance from Cologne-based Ensemble Musikfabrik was one of the hottest tickets at last November's Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.

Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra

This was their first in person gathering since the start of the pandemic; the players have been meeting online for nearly two years. Corey hosts from the stage of the CCA in Glasgow with highlights from the small groups - ensembles curated by Corey featuring members of the orchestra. Some players were familiar to each other, others were not, but each group came together for a memorable evening of spontaneous dialogue.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m001382y)
David Nutt

Professor David Nutt is an expert on drugs, and how they work on the brain. He trained as a psychiatrist, and for almost 50 years his research has focused on new drug treatments for anxiety, depression and addiction. In the late 1980s, at Bristol University, he set up the first unit in Britain to bridge psychiatry and pharmacology. He’s now at Imperial College, where he is Professor of Neuro-psychopharmacology. He has published hundreds of scientific papers and 27 books.

All of this makes David Nutt sound like a pillar of the establishment. But the reason most people know his name is that he has repeatedly challenged the government over its policies on illegal drugs and alcohol, arguing, for instance, that it’s more risky to go horse-riding than to take ecstasy. In his words: “no one in a position of authority dares to speak the truth”. But he also stresses “I have repeatedly said that cannabis is not safe”.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, David Nutt looks back on the childhood that gave him the confidence to challenge established opinion. Living on a council estate, he felt out of place at Bristol Grammar School, and was a very anxious child who couldn’t sleep. At night he used to creep to the stairs to hear the Proms drifting up from his father’s radio. Professor Nutt describes fascinating new research into treating depression using the active ingredient of magic mushrooms, and he reveals which music he plays to his patients during these experiments.

Music choices include Faure, Nielsen, Grieg and Beethoven – his Seventh Symphony, which David persuaded the crowd to dance to at a New Year’s Eve party. That experiment, he says, was a resounding success.

Elizabeth Watts and Julius Drake

A former member of Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme, Elizabeth Watts joins Julius Drake to perform a recital of songs by father and daughter: Gustav and Imogen Holst. While Gustav's songs regularly make their way into programmes, Imogen's have enjoyed far less success. In this recital, as well as Gustav's Vedic Hymns, inspired by the Rig Veda (a collection of over 1000 sacred hymns of praise, composed in Vedic Sanskrit), we're treated to some hidden gems, including what is possibly the world premiere of three of Imogen's 10 Appalachian Folksongs.

From London's Wigmore Hall.
Presented by Martin Handley.

Gustav Holst:
Calm is the morn (from Six Songs, Op 16)
Persephone (from Twelve Humbert Wolfe Songs, Op 48)
Betelgeuse (from Twelve Humbert Wolfe Songs, Op 48)
The heart worships
The floral bandit (from Twelve Humbert Wolfe Songs, Op 48)

Imogen Holst:
Weathers
Shall I thus ever long (from Four Songs, 1944)
As lawrell leaves (from Four Songs, 1944)

Imogen Holst (excerpts from 10 Appalachian Folksongs):
My dearest dear
The brisk young lover
I must and I will get married

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000dxyl)
The String Quartet

Why is a chamber ensemble of two violins, viola and cello the most popular in all of music? The string quartet has inspired - and instilled fear into - composers like no other ensemble, and has been used in pop songs from The Beatles to Bjork. Tom Service explores the string quartet, from Haydn's epic 68 works for the medium, to Beethoven's heroic and tortured late masterpieces, to Shostakovich's 15 soul-bearing 20th-century works. Tom's guests are composer Dobrinka Tabakova, who takes inspiration from the wealth of quartets written before her, and one of the best quartets in the business - the Brodsky Quartet who, besides the great classical cannon, have played with pop artists including Elvis Costello, Sting and Paul McCartney in their nearly 50-year existence.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0013835)
Healing Hertz

The note of A tuned to 440hz is perhaps the most recognisable and resonated frequency in the world. This is the international standard that an orchestra tunes to before starting to play. It's how our tuners are calibrated, how our keyboards and synthesisers are set up, how our computers are programmed and our ears attuned.

Composer and conductor Hannah Catherine Jones explores how this particular frequency for A rose to dominance in the western world. It's a story that encompasses a century-long argument between several countries, and which also involves BBC radio and even telephone ringtones.

Featuring new music she has composed specially for the programme, Hannah experiments with how it feels to reject the default tuning and embrace other frequencies. She presents a question in sound: what are we missing in the vibrations we don’t hear?

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m0013837)
Breaking the Ice

Join us as we glide through the centuries, skating on natural ice. Seán Williams traverses painting and poetry, cultural classical music and popular song since the “Northern Renaissance”. From 16th-century Flanders, across European Romanticism, and the ice discos of old: skating on frozen fields or waters was a sociable winter pastime for many during the “Little Ice Age” – and into the 20th century. Skaters’ Meadow in Cambridge was once the place to meet and try out new tricks, before seasonal outdoor rinks such as the one on the city’s Parker’s Piece were invented.

Skating has mostly been sociable, and sometimes idealised as solitary. But the fun and sense of freedom can shatter if it does not thaw. Ice, like life, is transient – and stories of ice skating are those of life and death, or flirtation. They tell of the slippery side to the lives of men especially…

Seán Williams hears from Beatrice Behlen, senior curator for fashion and decorative arts at the Museum of London, and hears a spontaneous choir of Cambridge students: James Bibey, Gina Stock, and Shriya Vishwanathan. Ice recordings in Sweden are thanks to John Savelid. The reader is Chris Jackson.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0013839)
To Preserve the Health of Man

David Suchet stars as the English Renaissance composer William Byrd, 'The Father of English Music'. In five imagined encounters, Byrd looks back at key influences in his life and work, as he composes his major liturgical work, the Gradualia, a collection of 109 pieces written for each of the feasts and events in the Church calendar.

Written by DJ Britton

William Byrd ..... David Suchet
Juliana Byrd ..... Sara Kestelman
Queen Elizabeth ..... Juliet Aubrey

Music performed by Odyssean Ensemble and recorded at the Chapel Royal, Tower of London

SUN 23:00 Cello Retold (m001383f)
Speaking to Yourself

South African cellist, singer and composer Abel Selaocoe explores the infinite bounds of the cello, looking at how the instrument can speak with itself on many different levels.

In this episode, Abel explains how the cello is an instrument of introspection and conversation, speaking in a variety of ways and expressing many different thoughts at the same time. From Bach to the Ugandan endingidi, Abel finds the common elements in the cello's story around the globe – rhythm, melody and basslines. With some incredible improvisations, Abel demonstrates how he creates so many fascinating sounds on the instrument, and moves from the bushmen of the Kalahari to Celtic folk music to end with some high energy cello funk.

Following on from Nick’s Japanese springtime soundscape from Tokyo last year, for this episode, we travel to the frozen north of the country - to Hokkaido, where we will be hearing the results of a research retreat featuring Japanese sound artist Makoto Nomura in collaboration with traditional and experimental musicians, all using the frozen wilderness as a musical instrument and sound source.

The eerie sound of skimming stones on a frozen lake, music made from huge pieces of driftwood on the beach, the delicate tones of the traditional indigenous Ainu instrument, the Tonkori, plus improvised music from in and around Menu Earth Lab located within a series of experimental architectural spaces.

Exploring the truth about Lully’s background and how he came to be in France.

Jean-Baptiste Lully was the most influential French composer of the 17th century, a key figure in the court of Louis XIV. This week, Donald Macleod explores how Lully rose from humble origins in Italy to become the most powerful musician in France, a story of lies, ambition and intrigue.

Today, Donald reveals Lully’s childhood in Italy and the circumstances that led him to France, where he began to make a name for himself in a sometimes hostile environment for Italians. Donald also examines the composer’s own misleading claims about his heritage.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m00138lg)
Herb

Marijuana Made Me

The world of cannabis is changing. The 21st century is witnessing decriminalisation of recreational use and increasing pressure for wider medical application. There are global cultural and social implications – but not all of them well explored. In 'Herb', the writer Colin Grant sets out to remedy this, mixing autobiography, history and research. He carries no agenda, ‘no lawyer’s brief for marijuana’. Rather, in a landscape in which almost all discussion is polarised, he seeks to explore a range of more nuanced aspects of its use and abuse.

In this first essay, Colin explores how his own attitude towards the drug has evolved over the years and the ambivalence he feels about it now. His father felt he had the perfect justification for dealing cannabis to his fellow West Indians in Luton in the late 1960s; he was doing it to further his ten-year-old son’s education. Unsurprisingly, the law didn’t quite see it that way...

Today, Donald explores how Lully came to work for France's monarch, Louis XIV, the Sun King. Lully’s own rise to fame in many ways mirrors Louis’s own rise to power, and Donald explores the dynamics of the relationship between the two men, and the advantages this afforded to Lully.

Adapting Molière

Do we underappreciate comic writing ? It’s 400 years since the birth of France’s great satirical playwright, Jean-Baptiste Pocquelin, better known by his pen-name Molière. Stendhal described him as “the great painter of man as he is” and his works have continued to be translated and performed on both the French and British stage with recent adaptations by Christopher Hampton, Anil Gupta and the Scottish poet and playwright, Liz Lochhead. She joins Anne McElvoy to help consider what we make of Molière now and how well his plays work in translation, alongside Clare Finburgh-Delijani, Professor of European Theatre at Goldsmiths, University of London and Suzanne Jones, a Junior Research Fellow in French at St Anne’s College Oxford. Their discussion looks at various adaptations of Tartuffe, Moliere’s play translated as The Hypocrite or The Imposter, which was first performed in 1664.

Listen out for a Words and Music episode that picks out key speeches from plays including The Miser, the Imaginary Invalid, The School for Wives and the Misanthrope. You can hear that on BBC Radio 3 at 5.30pm Sunday 16th - followed by a new adaptation of The Miser scripted by Barunka O’Shaughnessy.
You can also find out about the court music of Lully in Composer of the Week and there's a special edition of Radio 3's Early Music Show.

Burkina Faso's Incorruptible People and the Drum

Writer Colin Grant examines the implications of evolving attitudes to cannabis use in the 21st century. Recalling a trip to Burkina Faso some years ago, Colin explores the relationship between cannabis and the local community he encountered there, and how the boom in acceptance of the drug worldwide, for both medical and recreational purposes, has led to ‘green’ venture capitalism – and possibly a net loss for those subsistence farmers he met on his trip.

While the 20th century was replete with prohibition, the 21st century is rediscovering tolerance. From Canada to South Africa, Georgia to Uruguay and numerous US states; the legalisation of cannabis appears to be snowballing. But, Colin asks, what might it really mean to those who produce and consume it?

Celebrating Bernard Haitink: London Symphony Orchestra

Bernard Haitink's guest appearances with the LSO were hotly anticipated events and his 2017 benchmark performance of Mahler's great Ninth Symphony certainly lived up to expectations. As The Guardian critic put it, this was 'an exceptional performance, unblinkingly direct and faultlessly played by the LSO... objective and utterly coherent... few usher the final adagio towards its faltering close with more care and gentle humanity than Haitink did here.'

Mélusine

The legend of Mélusine emerges in French literature of the late 14th and early 15th centuries in the texts of Jean d’Arras and Coudrette. A beautiful young woman, the progeny of the union between a king and a fairy, is condemned to spend every Saturday with her body below the waist transformed into the tail of serpent. She agrees to marry only on the condition that her husband should never seek to see her on that day every week. Shahidha Bari explores the emergence of the hybrid mermaid-woman, her historical significance and the legacy of the medieval myth of Mélusine.

Olivia Colquitt is an AHRC-funded doctoral candidate at the University of Liverpool whose research focuses upon the socio-cultural significance of the late Middle English translations of the French prose romance Mélusine and its verse counterpart, Le Roman de Parthenay.

Hetta Howes is Senior Lecturer in Medieval and Early Modern Literature at City, University of London and is a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker. She is the author of Transformative Waters in Medieval Literature.

Lydia Zeldenrust is an Associate Lecturer in Medieval Literature, where she currently holds a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship. She is the author of The Melusine Romance in Medieval Europe.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m00139mw)
Herb

Leaf of Life

The writer Colin Grant says he carries ‘no lawyer’s brief for marijuana’. Rather, in a landscape in which almost all discussion is polarised, he seeks to explore a range of more nuanced aspects of the drug.

In this third essay of the series, Colin looks at the issue of medical cannabis. He traces the way in which it fell from favour in the 20th century and is now rising again, despite opposition and, as Colin sees it, institutional intransigence.

It is a subject with a particularly strong resonance for Colin’s family. When his brother, Christopher, struggled with prescribed epilepsy medication, he discovered welcome relief through cannabis use. Colin looks at recent research studies, delves back into the history of medical cannabis, and asks - if it was good enough for Queen Victoria, then why not his brother?

Tonight, recorded live in concert in 1997 at the Philharmonie, Berlin, the great Dutch conductor leads the Berlin Philharmonic in symphonies by two composers close to his heart. Like Mahler, the symphonies of Shostakovich were a mainstay of Haitink's repertoire and his performance of the epic Fourth was an unforgettable experience. The concert begins with the symphonic polar opposite of the Shostakovich, the charming and elegant Third Symphony of Schubert.
Presented by Tom Service

THU 22:45 The Essay (m00137ml)
Herb

The Fall of the House of Crosskill

Writer Colin Grant guides us through a nuanced story of cannabis use... and abuse.

As he states at the beginning of the series, Colin carries ‘no lawyer’s brief for marijuana’. In previous programmes, he has explored how it helped his epileptic brother and also how he believes it has provided a form of social service to subsistence communities. But in this essay, Colin explores one of the negative consequences; the role it might have played in the tragic demise of former editor and respected BBC World Service journalist, Hugh Crosskill.

With decriminalisation increasing and cannabis use continuing to grow globally, Colin feels it’s a story that may have implications for us all. The warning it carries is not perhaps the one we might expect, but one far more connected with the perils of how little we really know about the drug in its 21st-century form.

5. Out of Favour

Donald Macleod reveals the drastic consequences that resulted from Lully's unfortunate tendency to make enemies.

Jean-Baptiste Lully was the most influential French composer of the 17th century, a key figure in the court of Louis XIV. This week, Donald Macleod explores how Lully rose from humble origins in Italy to become the most powerful musician in France, a story of lies, ambition and intrigue.

In this final programme, we see how Lully eventually fell out with Louis XIV and Donald also examines the tragic events which led to the composer’s death.

Celebrating Bernard Haitink: Vienna Philharmonic

To end the series celebrating Bernard Haitink, the great conductor's last performance, when the 90-year-old bade farewell to the international concert stage with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, recorded at the Concert Hall, KKL, Lucerne, as part of the 2019 Lucerne Festival. To open the concert, he's joined by Emanuel Ax for Beethoven's by turns elusive and playful Piano Concerto No. 4. But to end, one of those 'Haitink' composers with which he made his name: Bruckner and his Seventh Symphony, which in this performance unfolds with Haitink's trademark inexorable inevitability, a fitting end to a seven-decades-long career.

Presented by Martin Handley.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m00139yp)
Herb

The Binoculars of Jah

The writer Colin Grant weaves autobiography with history and research to allow us to look at cannabis use and abuse from an original perspective. He explores how tendrils of marijuana smoke drift through literature, music, madness, medicine and mankind’s desire to meet and exchange.

While the twentieth century was marked by cannabis prohibition, the twenty first century is rediscovering tolerance. Legalisation appears to be snowballing.

But this tolerance comes just as scientists and psychiatrists are becoming increasingly concerned about the drug's links to psychosis, particularly with the global prevalence of higher-strength strains.

In this final Essay, Colin describes how, in the process of writing a book about one of his musical heroes, Bunny Wailer, he finds himself cursed and fearing his own imminent demise. This Essay interrogates marijuana’s association with culture and creativity and explores the place of the drug in both Hinduism and Rastafari, the spiritual and political movement in Jamaica.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m00139yr)
Ben LaMar Gay’s mixtape

Verity Sharp shares a mixtape from Chicago multi-instrumentalist, composer and vocalist Ben LaMar Gay to blast away the January blues. Raised on Chicago's South Side, Gay started his career as a cornet player, honing his craft as a member of the respected Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians. A prolific creator and collaborator in the experimental music scene in the city, he’s worked with everyone from Makaya McCraven, Joshua Abrams and Nicole Mitchell to Jaimie Branch, Theo Parrish and Bitchin Bajas.

Often described as a ‘postmodern folklorist’, Gay’s sound melds a vast array of influences including avant-garde jazz, Brazilian traditions, and experimental electronic composition. His exclusive mixtape for Late Junction reflects his wide-ranging influences, featuring Brazilian jazz, gospel blues, electroacoustic sounds, and plenty of avant-garde mind-bending jazz moments, with pieces from Charles Mingus, Pauline Oliveros, Pamela Z and Blind Willie Johnson.

Elsewhere in the show there’s sonic experiments from the Kingdom of Fife, marimba and vibraphone collaborations from Geneva and jaw harp from Nova Scotia.
