Conducting today, Takacs Quartet, Voice loss

As a week of exploration of the legacy of the late great Dutch maestro Bernard Haitink draws to a close on Radio 3, Tom Service talks to a handful of conductors making their mark today, to learn how they work their magic from the podium. Established names Marin Alsop and Sir Antonio Pappano offer their view, alongside rising stars Ryan Bancroft and Kalena Bovell, while Rebecca Miller and Alice Farnham share their thoughts and talk about their work exploring questions of leadership.

Composer Hannah Conway tells Tom about her sound and video installation exploring loss of voice, and featuring soprano Lucy Crowe dueting with Tanja Bage, a singer whose larynx were removed following a diagnosis of throat cancer.

And the four members of the Takacs Quartet join Tom down the line from their home in Boulder, Colorado, to talk about their latest projects, surviving lockdown, and their 47-year history.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0013htn)
Violinist Tessa Lark with musical flow, groove and crunch

Violinist Tessa Lark grew up immersed in both classical music and the bluegrass traditions of her native Kentucky. Drawing on these musical roots, Tessa chooses a colourful playlist that includes what she calls ‘neuron-tickling’ piano music by György Ligeti, powerful melodies by Dvorák and the folksy grooves of Béla Bartók.

Tessa also celebrates music by musicians with an “old-school” sound including pianist Artur Schnabel playing Schubert and a violinist who could really “sing a phrase”, Fritz Kreisler.

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

SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (m0013htv)
Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

Celebrating Bernard Haitink, who conducts this classic Royal Opera performance of the 1993 production by Graham Vick, which stars John Tomlinson as the cobbler-poet Hans Sachs. Gösta Winbergh sings the young iconoclast Walther, Thomas Allen is the prissy Nuremberg town clerk Beckmesser, and Nancy Gustafson is Eva Pogner, the young woman caught between them all.

The great Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink, who died last October at the age of 92. This production of Wagner's comic masterpiece was one of Haitink's greatest artistic triumphs as Music Director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden - perfect for Opera on 3's contribution to Radio 3's exploration of his legacy.

Graham Vick's acclaimed production, brand new in 1993, featured sunny designs inspired by the paintings of Breughel and Dürer, and a cast at the top of their game, as John Tomlinson's Sachs tries to save Eva from the threat of marriage to the dreaded Beckmesser - but will he give her up to the man she loves, or does he want her for himself?

Presented by Donald Macleod, in conversation with John Tomlinson.

SAT 22:00 New Music Show (m0013htx)
Alvin Lucier focus

Tom Service presents a special focus on the music of Alvin Lucier, who died last month, with highlights from a concert of his music recorded in London, and an in-depth archive interview with him.

Alvin Lucier: EPO5
Alvin Lucier: Two Circles
Ever Present Orchestra
Also tonight, music from Aberdeen Sound Festival 2021:
Tansy Davies: Yoik II
David Fennessy: Divje Babe
Ruth Morley (flute)
Luke Styles: Five Phase Sphere
Red Note Ensemble
And from Donaueshingen Music Days 2021:
Oyvind Torvund: Plans
Klangforum Wien

Lucier was a distinguished American experimental composer. Much of his work was influenced by science and explores the physical properties of sound itself: resonance of spaces, phase interference between closely tuned pitches, and the transmission of sound through physical media.

The Ever Present Orchestra was formed exclusively to perform the music of Lucier, in Switzerland in 2017. The concert featuring in tonight's show was recorded in London in 2019, and Tom also talks to the orchestra's director, Bernhard Rietbrock, about Lucier's legacy.



SUNDAY 16 JANUARY 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0013htz)
Monuments

Corey Mwamba presents live sets performed in, and reflecting on, old monuments in Russia and France, plus Latin American-inspired psychedelia.

We hear a live set from The Urge Trio - saxophonists Keefe Jackson and Christopher Erb, alongside cellist Tomeka Reid - performing at the Masterskaya Anikushina community arts venue in St Petersburg, Russia. Here, they explore different facets of heroism, as inspired by the statues of 20th-century Russian revolutionaries through deep listening and subtle gestures. Another live set comes from Joëlle Léandre at the 2020 Souillac en Jazz festival in France, just before her seventieth birthday. It's a stunning solo performance filled with vigour and light-bending grit, in the atmospheric surrounds of a church marked as an historic site predating the 17th century. Also in the programme, we dive into the ‘electric experimental assemblage’ world of the Canada-based Commander Gonzales, a project led by saxophonist Mark Allwood and drummer Paul Ciuk: expect Latin American polyrhythms and avant-garde psychedelia.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0013hws)
Dame Stephanie Shirley

Dame Stephanie Shirley arrived in Britain from Vienna as a five-year-old, without her parents. It was 1939, and she was one of 10,000 Jewish children brought by train on the Kindertransport to escape the Nazis. She went on to become one of the most successful businesswomen of the 20th century; in 1962, working from home, she founded one of the first tech-start-ups: an all-woman software company, Freelance Programmers, which was ultimately valued at almost $3 billion, making seventy of her staff millionaires.

Since ‘retiring’, her work has been in philanthropy, with a particular focus on IT and autism – in memory of her son, who had autism, and who died at the age of only 35. She estimates that The Shirley Foundation has given away £67 million, not least for the establishment of three autism charities. She is the author of two books and is frequently asked to give motivational speeches about women in business and her own life story. She says, “I decided to make my life one worth saving”.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Dame Stephanie Shirley looks back on an extraordinarily dramatic life. She describes the Kindertransport train, with children sleeping on the luggage racks, weeping for their lost families. She tells the story of her early days in business, and how she took on the name “Steve” to be taken more seriously. She also had a tape recording of frantic typing that she used to play during work phone calls, to disguise the fact that she was at home. And she talks movingly about her son’s death and how that changed the direction of her life. Her music choices include Bach, Britten’s ‘Ceremony of Carols’, Dido’s Lament and the ‘Cat Duet’ attributed to Rossini.

Molière

Today's programme is divided into some of the key themes explored in plays such as Don Juan, Tartuffe and the Misanthrope: Hypocrisy, Theatre, Marriage and the relationships between Men and Women, Religion, Medics, Death; with readings from other authors on these topics including Swift and Nancy Mitford. The French language is often referred to as the "language of Molière" and some of today's readings are in French; others come from translations by Ranjit Bolt, Liz Lochead, Martin Crimp, John Wood and David Coward.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0013hx1)
Sound in the Blood

All sound carries an emotional charge: the sea at rest, bird squabbles, wind moving through trees. Nature beatboxer and sound artist Jason Singh registers this emotion in his skin and bones, using his voice to make sensitive, layered and moving soundscapes - for galleries, theatres, and films. To encounter Jason's work is to be astonished at what can be achieved with the human voice. Jason's craft requires a poet's heightened attention; inhabiting the song of a blackbird has been a lifetime's work.

In this programme, Jason seeks the source of his fascination with mimicking the natural world, which became very important to him after reading 'The Conference of the Birds', a 12th-century Persian poem.

Jason also thinks his fascination with shapeshifting or 'soundshifting' must have something to do with his great-grandfather, who left Lahore to travel and read the palms of the great and the good, always carrying glowing letters of recommendation explaining that he would reveal truths about people 'not commonly known' and reflecting people's stories back to them. He explores the idea that they are both 'listeners' - a kind of family inheritance.

Jason bares his process along the way taking us deep into a soundscape of sea, wind, birds and drones.

The reader is Chris Jackson.

SUN 23:00 Cello Retold (m0013hx7)
Virtuosity and the Voice

South African cellist, singer and composer Abel Selaocoe explores the infinite bounds of the cello, looking at how virtuosic power and vocal expression carries through similar instruments around the world.

In this episode, Abel explains how the cello's phenomenal virtuosity and human-like voice is common to similar instruments in other cultures, including the Eritrean wata and South African lesiba, and delves into how poetry and storytelling is communicated through the cello. With some incredible improvisations Abel demonstrates how he creates so many fascinating sounds on the instrument such as circular bowing inspired by Lesotho's sekhankula, and moves from the virtuosity of Bach to the yearning expressivity of Egyptian tonality, as well as improvising on the music of Tanzania's Wagogo people.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0013j05)
Unearthing Britannia's Tribes

The Cantiaci

The Essay unearths the peoples of Iron Age Britain from warrior queens to Lindow Man in a major new series.

"We are the last people on earth, and the last to be free: our very remoteness in a land known only to rumour has protected us up till this day. Today the furthest bounds of Britain lie open—and everything unknown is given an inflated worth. But now there is no people beyond us, nothing but tides and rocks and, more deadly than these, the Romans." Tacitus, Agricola

Explore the worlds of ancient Albion; from the western reaches of Cornwall to the tribes of Essex and across to the wilds of Scotland and Wales. Their stories, footprint and traces have been dug from the ground, pored over by archaeologists and historians, and informed by the accounts of travellers and conquerors who visited the far shores of exotic Britannia for trade or glory. With the arrival of Caesar's armies, nothing would be the same again.

In this episode archaeologist David Miles, tells the story of the Cantiaci of Kent and how the inhabitants of this 'land on the edge' became the first to fall under Rome's influence.

Producer: Ellie Bury

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0013j4z)
Franz Liszt (1811-1886)

Flood

After several years of absence from Hungary, Liszt is taken aback by news of the disastrous floods in Pest in 1838. His thoughts turn to the country of his birth and prompt him take action to support his native countrymen. Donald Macleod continues his story of Liszt's relationship with Hungary and recounts how thoughts of his homeland inspired a new sequence of works which will eventually become the Hungarian Rhapsodies.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0013j59)
Simon Rattle conducts the London Symphony Orchestra

For their first concert of 2022, Simon Rattle and the LSO begin with an eagerly awaited, Covid-postponed world premiere. The internationally renowned Korean-born, Berlin-based composer Unsuk Chin thought she had written her one and only violin concerto until she heard the playing of Leonidas Kavakos. The result is her Violin Concerto No 2, ‘Scherben der Stille’ – 'Shards of Silence' – inspired by, as she puts it, Kavakos’s burningly intense and completely focused personality and unique musicianship.

Two very different 20th-century masterpieces by composers close to Rattle's heart complete the programme. The inevitability of Sibelius's intense and compact final symphony in some way seems profoundly to reflect the natural world, in stark contrast to Bartók's albeit dazzling suite from his ballet The Miraculous Mandarin with its squalid and tawdry urban setting peopled by sleazy characters.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0013j5f)
Unearthing Britannia's Tribes

Cornwall-People, Land and Worship

The Essay unearths the peoples of Iron Age Britain from warrior queens to Lindow Man in a major new series.

"We are the last people on earth, and the last to be free: our very remoteness in a land known only to rumour has protected us up till this day. Today the furthest bounds of Britain lie open—and everything unknown is given an inflated worth. But now there is no people beyond us, nothing but tides and rocks and, more deadly than these, the Romans." Tacitus, Agricola

Explore the worlds of ancient Albion; from the western reaches of Cornwall to the tribes of Essex & across to the wilds of Scotland and Wales. Their stories, footprint and traces have been dug from the ground, pored over by archaeologists and historians, and informed by the accounts of travellers and conquerors who visited the far shores of exotic Britannia for trade or glory. With the arrival of Caesar's armies, nothing would be the same again.

Caradoc Peters of Plymouth University has been in love with the Iron Age, a land and people that hovered between an ancient landscape of nature spirits and one where the living and the dead inhabited close but separate parallel worlds. It was a place of many small, fragmented communities, paradoxically at the cutting edge of new developments.

Producer: Mark Burman

Franz Liszt (1811-1886)

Uprising

Europe in the 1840s saw a potent wave of nationalism with uprisings breaking out in many of the continent’s major cities as people campaigned against old feudal rule and the right to self-determination. As Donald Macleod relates, the uprising in Hungary was a prime example and it required a reaction and a response from the country’s most famous son, Franz Liszt, both personally and musically.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (m0013jnx)
Paper

Laurence Scott explores the cultural and social history of paper, from the Chinese Han Dynasty in 105 AD to the 20th-century workplace. His guests are:

Adam Smyth, a Professor of English Literature and the History of the Book at the University of Oxford. His books include Material Texts in Early Modern England; Book Destruction from the Medieval to the Contemporary (co-edited with Dennis Duncan) and Book Parts: A collection of essays on the history of parts of a book; Therese Weber, an artist who has made paintings out of pulp, paper tearing and dipping and is the author of The Language of Paper: A History of 2000 Years; Nicholas Basbanes, a writer and journalist, whose books include On Paper: The Everything of its Two Thousand Year History and Emily Cockayne, an Associate Professor in Early Modern History at the University of East Anglia and author of Rummage: A History of the Things We Have Reused, Recycled and Refused to Let Go. Laurence Scott is the author of books about digital life including The Four-Dimensional Human and Picnic Comma Lightning.

How did such a mundane substance revolutionise modern warfare, enable Imperialism and transform art? Can there ever be a blank page? Is recycling the answer to waste?

The conversation ranges across the relationship between paper and religious history in the printing of the Quran and Tibetan rituals for the dead; to C17 Swedish paper bullets; Dickens’ Bleak House - in which a pile of paper leads to a fatal fire; the Bristol company who specialised in papier-mâché – a material used for elaborate decorations in C18 homes – and then used by artists like Jean Dubuffet in the 1940s and 50s and a scrap of paper, which survived 9/11 and told a widow, about her husband's final moments.

Franz Liszt (1811-1886)

Charitas

It is indicative of Liszt’s nature that he was so giving and generous, both with his money and his time. Profoundly religious, he believed absolutely in what he referred to as "Genie oblige" - the obligation of genius. One of his favourite images was of the saint St Francis of Padua, captured in a miraculous image brandishing his motto “Charitas”, which prompted Liszt to depict him in music. Donald Macleod continues his story of Liszt and Hungary with a focus on his benevolent response to the country of his birth and on how he was prevailed upon to take a part in shaping the course of the nation’s future, in particular by giving weight to its music.

Touki Bouki

A bull-horned skull motorbike is one of the central images of Djibril Diop Mambéty's classic 1973 film, whose title translates as The Journey of the Hyena. Listed as one of the 100 greatest films of all time in the Sight and Sound magazine poll, it was part funded by the Senagalese government with a budget of $30,000. During the filming Mambéty was arrested after taking part in anti-racist protests in Rome. Matthew Sweet is joined by guests including New Generation Thinker Sarah Jilani and xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.

Producer: Torquil MacLeod

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0013js6)
Unearthing Britannia's Tribes

Queen Cartimandua

The Essay unearths the peoples & landscape of Iron Age Britain. From warrior Queens to Lindow Man in a major new series. Explore the worlds of ancient Albion; from the Western reaches of Cornwall to the tribes of Essex & across to the wilds of Scotland & Wales. Their stories, footprint & traces have been dug from the ground, pored over by archaeologists & historians & informed by the accounts of travellers and conquerors.

"We are the last people on earth, and the last to be free: our very remoteness in a land known only to rumour has protected us up till this day. Today the furthest bounds of Britain lie open—and everything unknown is given an inflated worth. But now there is no people beyond us, nothing but tides and rocks and, more deadly than these, the Romans." Tacitus, Agricola (XXX)

Independent historian Nicki Howarth-Pollard pieces together Queen Cartimandua's reign & fate as a ruler who had to negotiate the survival of her people, the Brigantes, and the reality of a conquered land.

Producer: Mark Burman

As Cold As Ice

Elizabeth Alker presents chilling ambient sounds inspired by the Arctic marine environment, featuring an exclusive first play of a track from Tim Hecker’s new record The North Water, which soundtracks a film that follows a doomed Arctic journey. The composer Michael Begg transforms daily average data points for ice concentration and thickness, air temperature, pressure, precipitation and evaporation into melodic lines and harmonic content on his album Light Water Is Black Water. The steep ravines and waterfalls of the Calderdale Valley in West Yorkshire form the inspiration for the latest release by the artist known as Spaceship and there’s a little something from a forthcoming Animal Collective album.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0013jqt)
Franz Liszt (1811-1886)

Je suis hongrois

Donald Macleod recounts Liszt’s final years, and the period when the elderly composer spent much time travelling between his homes in Rome, Weimar and Budapest, journeying hundreds of miles by train to fulfil his many obligations. Tired and often unfairly criticised by even those closest to him, his final days were tragic. When he died an international argument ensued as to which country held the best claim to his final resting place.

Correspondances

From the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.
Presented by Tom McKinney

The BBC Philharmonic and Ludovic Morlot explore travel and the art of letter writing. Betsy Jolas's "Letters from Bachville" is her response to an invitation to compose music to be performed in Leipzig. She imagined herself walking in the city's streets, treading in Bach's footsteps and she incorporates fragments of his music throughout the piece. Having moved from Paris to America as a child during the Second World War, Betsy Jolas returned to study in Paris when she was 20 years old. Dvorak made a journey from Europe to America and his "New World" Symphony, which closes the programme, reflects his feelings of homesickness as well as fascination with the new tunes and landscapes he found in America. Soprano Carolyn Sampson joins the orchestra for Dutilleux's song-cycle "Correspondances". He chooses letters by Vincent van Gogh to his brother, and from Mstislav Rostropovich to his wife, soprano Galina Vishnevskaya as well as poetry by Rainer Maria Rilke and Prithwindra Mukherjee weaving a unique sound world of expressive orchestral colour.

The programme opens with "Letter from Home" by Copland, another composer who had spent time away from his American home studying in Paris. This piece was written for a war-time radio programme "Out of the Blue" and this tender and nostalgic music portrays a soldier reading a letter with news from home.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0013jr8)
Unearthing Britannia's Tribes

The Demetae

The Essay unearths the peoples of Iron Age Britain from warrior queens to Lindow Man in a major new series.

"We are the last people on earth, and the last to be free: our very remoteness in a land known only to rumour has protected us up till this day. Today the furthest bounds of Britain lie open—and everything unknown is given an inflated worth. But now there is no people beyond us, nothing but tides and rocks and, more deadly than these, the Romans." Tacitus, Agricola

Explore the worlds of ancient Albion; from the western reaches of Cornwall to the tribes of Essex and across to the wilds of Scotland and Wales. Their stories, footprint and traces have been dug from the ground, pored over by archaeologists and historians, and informed by the accounts of travellers and conquerors who visited the far shores of exotic Britannia for trade or glory. With the arrival of Caesar's armies, nothing would be the same again.

In this episode, poet Menna Elfyn senses the enduring presence of the Demetae in Carmarthen, the oldest town in Wales.

Producer: Ellie Bury


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0013jrb)
Highlife and the Big Bang

Strap in for another two-hour journey, adventuring through the nooks and crannies of experimental sound with Jennifer Lucy Allan. We’ll drop in on some Ghanaian highlife fused with Congolese rumba from the 1970s courtesy of the band Vis-A-Vis, and visit the strange and haunting sound worlds of French artist Anne Gillis. Plus a trip back to the Big Bang courtesy of Nigerian violinist Ibukun Sunday, and we zoom in on sonic miniatures inspired by the world of cinema from Turkish songwriter Isik Kural.
