9.30am Building A Library: Sarah Willis on Britten’s Serenade for tenor, horn and strings

The Serenade's status as a darkly dazzling 20th-century classic is founded on Britten's unerring ear for finding and setting English poetry, coupled with his instinctive sense of instrumental and vocal virtuosity. Its six texts, from Ben Johnson to Tennyson, deal with night and the corruption of innocence, themes which preoccupied Britten throughout his career. Both the solo writing and the interplay between voice and horn are based on the strengths of the two musicians for which it was written, Britten's long-time partner, Peter Pears and the horn player Dennis Brain. They made the first recording in 1944, a year after the premiere, and since then many subsequent recordings, most often featuring British tenors, have followed.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0014yg0)
Semyon Bychkov

As he prepares for concerts in the UK with the Czech Philharmonic, conductor Semyon Bychkov talks to Tom Service about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and about the relationship between art and politics, and draws a fascinating comparison with events in recent European history.

We also hear heart-rending accounts from Ukrainian musicians, some still in the country, some abroad, about how the conflict has affected their lives, about whether they're prepared to answer the call to arms to defend their homeland, and about how they see their future. We hear from Oleksander Piriyev, cellist and broadcaster in Radio Kultura, in Lviv; from the leader of the Lviv National Philharmonic, Marko Komonko; from Dartsya Tarkovska, co-founder of Music Export Ukraine, an organisation promoting artists; and from Kirill Karabits, chief conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

Also, Concert Fieri premieres recently found madrigals from Italian late Renaissance composer Maddalena Casulana; we talk to musicologist Laurie Stras who discovered them, as well as Hannah Ely, from the ensemble.

And leading up to Radio 3's programmes on International Women’s Day next Tuesday, we take a look at female sound engineers and record producers, a role traditionally associated with men only. With contributions from Classical producer Martha de Francisco, who recorded artists such as Jessye Norman, Alfred Brendel, the Vienna Philharmonic and Simon Rattle, and also from Marta Salogni, whose creative drive has led her to collaborate with Bjork, Holly Herndon and Anna Meredith, and bands like Django Django and Groove Armada.

Producer: Juan Carlos Jaramillo

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0014yg2)
Lute player Elizabeth Kenny with strings plucked, bowed and strummed

Lutenist Elizabeth Kenny returns to Inside Music with a selection of musical surprises. She explores two plucked improvisations - one by Senegalese kora player Kadialy Kouyate and another by Renaissance composer Hieronymus Kapsberger, champions the versatility of the ukulele, and is reacquainted with a track that takes the guitar into apocalyptic territory.

Liz also shares a recording that finds tragedy in the bowing of a violin, and a string quartet that seems to sit between two worlds.

Plus, Liz celebrates musical storytelling, from a cantata lifting souls to the stars, to Stephen Sondheim’s use of a pit orchestra.

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

SAT 17:00 J to Z (m0014yg8)
ARTEMIS in concert, plus Jihye Lee

Jumoké Fashola marks International Women's Day with live music from ARTEMIS, an all-star band featuring pianist Renee Rosnes, tenor saxophonist Nicole Glover, clarinettist Anat Cohen, trumpeter Ingrid Jensen, bassist Noriko Ueda, drummer Allison Miller and vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant. Recorded live in Toronto they play some brand-new music, including an imaginative arrangement of a Wayne Shorter favourite.

Also in the programme, South Korean, New York-based bandleader and composer Jihye Lee shares her inspirations. Lee moved to the US to study at Boston’s Berklee College of Music, and later to New York to study under the tutelage of the great Jim McNealy. She is now a highly regarded big-band composer, recognised for her innovative and risk-taking style. Lee treats her compositions like documents of her life, encouraging listeners to enter her creative world. This is reflected in the tracks she has chosen to share, which explore music’s ability to tell stories.


SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0014ygb)
Handel's Theodora

In the 4th century AD, when Valens, the Roman governor of Antioch, issues a decree that all citizens will offer sacrifice to Venus, Theodora, as a Christian, refuses. Expecting to be put to death, she is informed instead that she has been sentenced to serve as a prostitute in the temple of Venus. Her beloved Didymus persuades her to change places with him, concealing her identity by putting on his uniform and escaping, leaving him to face the wrath of the Roman officers. She does so, but is fraught with guilt at having endangered Didymus's life in order to save her own.

At the Royal Opera House, Julia Bullock, Joyce DiDonato and Jakub Józef Orliński star in Katie Mitchell’s new interpretation of this story. In an alternative modern-day reality, Theodora, a religious fundamentalist, plots for the resistance against the Roman occupation. But when her secret plan to destroy the Roman embassy is discovered, she learns the true brutality of her oppressors.

Not heard in Covent Garden since its 1750 premiere, and sung in the original English libretto by Thomas Morell, Theodora is a tour de force for soloists and chorus alike, with ensembles, duets and arias of profound depth and beauty. This new interpretation, conducted by Baroque specialist Harry Bicket, shines a new, feminist light on the story.

Presented by Andrew McGregor, in conversation with Suzanne Aspden.

Theodora: Julia Bullock, soprano
Irene: Joyce DiDonato, mezzo-soprano
Didymus: Jakub Józef Orlinski, counter-tenor
Septimus: Ed Lyon, tenor
Valens: Gyula Orendt, baritone
Marcus: Thando Mjandana, tenor
Chorus: Royal Opera Chorus
Orchestra: Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

SUNDAY 06 MARCH 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0014ygg)
Common Tongue

Kim Macari presents new improvised music.

The Italian duo, Cesare Lopopolo’s and Anna Vezzosi’s project, Rosso Polare uses an array of techniques - from call and response improvisation to tape manipulation - to create experimental soundscapes of bass-backed murmurs and clangs that blur the line between the worlds of human and non-humans.

The name of the Berlin based trio, Der Dritte Stand, roughly translates as the Third Estate, or the common people. Through free association and subtle give and take, a sprawling egalitarian world emerges that exists beyond hierarchy and towards collaborative possibility.

Kenyan American multi-instrumentalist Nyokabi Kariuki offers a meditation not only on the impact of colonialism on Kenyan languages and indigenous cultures, but her own reconciliatory journey to reconnect with her heritage. Her childhood haunts are brought to life through field recordings, experimental electronics, and multilingual chatter in this tender and vibrant quest through memory and history.

Sarah Walker with an inviting musical mix

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning.

Sarah looks back to ancient times with a 14th-century ‘estampie’, and a setting of an old hymn by the 17th-century composer Monteverdi. She also enjoys the unique syncopated sound world of the composer Peggy Glanville-Hicks, and revels in the nostalgic atmosphere of Prokofiev’s ‘Tales of an Old Grandmother’.

There are also three very different dances - one from Sweden, one from the Highlands of Scotland played on a medieval harp and a Spanish Arabesque.

Plus, horn player Alec Frank-Gemmill shows the versatility of his instrument in a piece by Johann Friedrich Fasch.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0014ym9)
Esther Rantzen

Back when Mrs Thatcher was prime minister, it was said there were three powerful women in Britain. There was Mrs Thatcher herself; there was the Queen; and there was Esther Rantzen. Breaking into television at a time when it was very much a man’s world, she became one of the most recognisable and powerful voices in the country, thanks to her Sunday-night show, That’s Life, which ran for 21 years. In today’s fragmented television world, it’s almost unbelievable quite how popular that programme was in the 70s and 80s; up to 22 million people tuned in for a mix of consumer affairs, cheeky vox pops, and rudely shaped root vegetables sent in by viewers. It was a programme that exposed both faulty washing machines and the shortage of organ donors, and it created some serious social campaigns. In 1986 Esther Rantzen set up Childline, which is now run by the NSPCC, and in 2012 she launched Silver Line, offering support to older people. In 2015 she was made a Dame for services to children and older people.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley Esther Rantzen looks back on her early days in broadcasting, when her job was to create sound effects for dramas by running round the studio flapping a huge umbrella (to simulate a pterodactyl, apparently). She talks about how she began to realize the scale of abuse suffered by the children in this country, which led to the creation of Childline. She reveals, too, the pleasure she takes now in living in the country, leaving her career behind, and realising that life is for living, not working.

Music choices include Elgar, Georges Brassens, Brahms’s Double Concerto, Grieg, and Carmen Jones.

Dorothee Mields and Tobias Koch

Early music soprano and fortepianist Tobias Koch perform songs by CPE Bach, interspersed with the composer's solo keyboard music. The theme of the recital is “On Kissing”, and the songs are grouped under the headings: “Vom Küssen allgemein” (On Kissing, in general); "Alles, nur nicht Küssen" (Anything but Kissing); and “Vom Todeskuss aus dem Schierlingsbecher” (On the Deadly Kiss from the Cup of Hemlock) with Heinrich Wilhelm von Gerstenberg’s arrangement of the Fantasia in C Minor, underlaid with Socrates’s monologue on death. The recital concludes with CPE Bach's secular cantata Die Grazien (The Graces), which includes confusion, mistaken identity, and in keeping with the theme of the programme, a kissing game.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0003rpg)
Bruckner and the Symphonic Boa Constrictors

Even today, some music lovers will nod knowingly when they hear Brahms's comparison of Anton Bruckner's epic symphonies with a nightmare-scary giant snake that kills its victims in the inescapable embrace of its crushing coils. Poor Bruckner, ever the easy target of sneering critics. At once childishly obsessive and intensely spiritual, ultra-sophisticated musician and naive country bumpkin: even by composers' standards he stood out as weird. No wonder the music was so hopeless!

But Tom Service wants you to think of Bruckner as one of the greatest and most original symphonists of all time (whose symphonies really don't all sound the same), as much master of daring long-range musical form as of the perfect miniature.

David Papp (producer)


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0014ymh)
Sisters

For there is no friend like a sister, and in this International Women’s Day edition of Words and Music, Pippa Nixon and Sarah Amankwah explore the complex relationships between sisters. From delighting in each other’s company with readings of Wordsworth and Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, to seething with jealousy in extracts from Arifa Akbar’s Consumed and CS Lewis’s Narnia, to sadness at parting in Diana Hendry’s Parting and Brit Bennett’s The Vanishing Half. There are many types of sisters: not just blood relatives, but friends, loved ones, and those rallying together to change the world. Emily Dickinson celebrates a sister-in-law, and Rupi Kaur celebrates sisters-in-heart, while we turn to Magi Gibson makes a call to arms for sisters in her poem ‘Wild Women of a Certain Age’. We also hear about musical sisters, Nanerl Mozart and Fanny Mendelssohn.

Musically, we hear figures twisting around one another like sisters in Bach’s Double Concerto and Brahms’s Concerto for Violin and Cello. Our soundtrack also includes piano duets played by the Labeque Sisters. As well as Fanny Mendelssohn, there’s music from sisters Nadia and Lili Boulanger. We explore jealousy and sadness in songs from Hamilton and by the Unthank Sisters, and celebrate sisterhood with Angelique Kidjo.

Readers: Sarah Amankwah and Pippa Nixon.

Producer: Sofie Vilcins

You might also be interested in the Free Thinking episode on International Women's Day March 8th in which Shahidha Bari talks to the Unthank Sisters and to the authors Oyinkan Braithwaite and Lucy Holland and feminist historian Professor Sally Alexander.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0014ymk)
Florence Price’s Chicago and the Black Female Fellowship

Samantha Ege unravels a tale of music, kinship and community in 1920s Chicago: the remarkable female musicians and activists who helped Florence Price's music to thrive.

The last few years have seen the life and work of Florence Price (1887-1953) come fascinatingly - and belatedly - into the spotlight. Born in segregation-era Little Rock Arkansas, Price is now considered amongst the most important American musicians of the 20th century: a pioneering and gifted African-American composer whose life and music challenged - and broke through - barriers of race and gender to claim a place in music history.

In 1933, Florence Price was the first black woman to have a symphony performed by a major orchestra, the Chicago Symphony. Her works for piano - including her rhapsodic and intoxicating Fantasies Negres - are full of the influence of not just spirituals and folk music, but Stravinsky, Berg and the lush textures and melodies of early 20th century Romanticism.

Now, in the 21st century, Florence Price's music is finally finding its rightful place in our concert halls and history books. Yet underpinning Price's story is a remarkable parallel story - one that's still virtually unknown.

Because Florence Price was not an anomaly. Hers is just one part of of a remarkable narrative in 20th-century American music: a thriving community of black female musicians in early 20th-century Chicago, whose collective agency, advocacy, support and activism helped one another - and Price especially - to truly thrive.

For the first time, Oxford University Research Fellow Dr Samantha Ege tells their story - (re-)framing Price as part of a vivid group portrait in the nexus of Chicago South Side's cultural community: the district of Bronzeville. As we traverse the key locations and the cultural geography of this remarkable district, Samantha unravels the story of a unique "Chicago Renaissance", exploring the interlinked stories of four pivotal musical figures: Nora Douglas Holt (1885-1974), Estella Conway Bonds (1882-1957) and her daughter Margaret Bonds (1913-1972) and Maude Roberts George (1892-1943).

With contributions from historians Tammy Kernodle, Liesl Olson and Alisha Jones; composer Regina Harris Baiocchi; photographer and author Lee Bey; and vocalists Robert Sims and Paul-Martin Bender.

SUN 20:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0014ymr)
Quartet for the End of Time

The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Total Immersion 'Music for the End of Time' in January this year focused on the Theresienstadt Ghetto of the 1940s. Here many of the finest musical talents of the time were held pawns in an appalling Nazi propaganda exercise, then taken to the concentration camps from which they never returned.

Over the course of a day at the Barbican, to reflect their fate, the number of performers on the Barbican stage dwindled from full orchestra to conclude with just four. Messiaen composed his Quartet for the End of Time for fellow musicians imprisoned with him in 1941 in a Silesian camp, saying of the premiere: ‘never was I listened to with such rapt attention and comprehension’. Outstanding musicians from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama gave a performance described by The Guardian as 'sensationally played'.

Recorded at the Barbican on Sunday 23rd January 2022

SUN 23:00 The Electronic Century with Gabriel Prokofiev (m000r39k)
New Sonic Territories

One hundred years since the earliest electronic instruments began to appear, composer Gabriel Prokofiev explores how the advent of electronically generated sound has influenced how we make and listen to music. Over three episodes, Gabriel charts a personal journey through the key works that influenced his own composing style, and the impact electronics have had on contemporary classical music.

In this episode, Gabriel shares some of the earliest compositions made with electronically generated sound. Starting with the theremin, the first instrument to broaden the possibilities of the orchestra through electronics, Gabriel traces a line between the lesser heard electronic compositions of György Ligeti emerging from Stockhausen’s WDR studio in Cologne, to the madcap inventions of Raymond Scott and Wendy Carlos’ synthesized film scores.

We’ll feature music composed for early, lesser-known synthesizer prototypes such as the ANS machine from 1937, inspired by the Russian composer and synesthesiac Alexander Nikolayevich Scriabin, as well as Daphne Oram’s ‘Oramics Machine’ which also allowed her to draw shapes and turn them into sound. Gabriel re-evaluates the early electronic compositions that were sidelined into jingles, TV themes and film scores to hear how they still stand the test of time today.

Henriette Bosmans (1895-1952)

Family Matters

Donald Macleod looks at Bosmans’s relationship with her parents and finds out about a confrontation with the Gestapo.

Henriëtte Bosmans seemed destined for a life in music from the moment of her birth, in 1895. Her father was the principal solo cellist in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and her mother a piano teacher at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Bosmans developed a flourishing career and won international success with her Concert Piece for Violin and Orchestra. As a concert pianist she performed alongside conductors such as Ernest Ansermet and George Szell.
Bosmans’s mother was a Jew and, although Bosmans didn’t consider herself Jewish, her ancestry played a significant role in the events of her life. She lived through the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, when tens of thousands of Amsterdam Jews were deported to concentration camps, including her fellow citizen, Anne Frank. This week, Donald Macleod is joined by Bosmans expert Dr Helen Metzelaar and also Dr Laurien Vastenhout from Amsterdam’s Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide.

Today, Donald sees Henriëtte’s mother, Sara, arrested by the Nazi secret police and sent to the transit camp at Westerbork. Henriëtte sets out to rescue her.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0014yqx)
Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra

Mahler famously told Sibelius that "a symphony must be like the world. It must embrace everything" and there's certainly a lot of everything in Mahler's Third Symphony. It takes over 90 minutes and massive orchestral forces to perform, as it lurches from resplendent and eloquent depictions of nature to military marches, earthy humour and rustic dances. There's song, too, when time seems suspended, only to be immediately followed by a jolly ding-dong folksong. And it's all capped by an extraordinary and transcendent slow orchestral finale.

The recording was made at the opening concert of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra's new season in September last year. After four years, the orchestra was finally back in its home, the lavishly renovated Grosse Tonhalle, internationally renowned for its superb acoustics.

Fashion Stories

Body Armour

"My lady's corselet" was developed by a pioneer of free verse on the frontlines of feminism, the poet Mina Loy. Celebrated in the 1910s as the quintessential New Woman, her love of freedom was shadowed by a darker quest to perfect the female body, as her unusual designs for a figure-correcting corset show. Sophie Oliver asks how she fits into a history of body-correcting garments and cosmetic surgery, feminism and fashion. Working on both sides of the Atlantic writing poetry and designing bonkers body-altering garments: like a bracelet for office workers with a built-in ink blotter, or her ‘corselet’ to correct curvature of the spine in women - in the end Mina Loy couldn’t stop time, and her late-life poetry is full of old clothes and outcast people from the Bowery, as she reckons with – and celebrates – the fact that she has become unfashionable.

Henriette Bosmans (1895-1952)

Concert Pianist

Donald Macleod traces Bosmans’s trajectory as a pianist, and her short-lived engaged to a fellow musician.

Henriëtte Bosmans seemed destined for a life in music from the moment of her birth, in 1895. Her father was the principal solo cellist in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and her mother a piano teacher at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Bosmans developed a flourishing career and won international success with her Concert Piece for Violin and Orchestra. As a concert pianist she performed alongside conductors such as Ernest Ansermet and George Szell.

Bosmans’s mother was a Jew and, although Bosmans didn’t consider herself Jewish, her ancestry played a significant role in the events of her life. She lived through the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, when tens of thousands of Amsterdam Jews were deported to concentration camps, including her fellow citizen, Anne Frank. This week, Donald Macleod is joined by Bosmans expert Dr Helen Metzelaar and also Dr Laurien Vastenhout from Amsterdam’s Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide.

During the 1920s and 30s, Henriëtte Bosmans was making a name for herself as a concert pianist. She was regularly engaged to perform with orchestras and her chamber ensemble, toured the Netherlands. The intense pressure of her performing work led Bosmans to feel that she’d reached a crisis point as a composer and she sought the help of her neighbour, the composer Willem Pijper. From this point her compositions began to move away from the Late-Romantic sound of the 19th century, towards a more forward-looking style. In 1934 Bosmans became engaged to the violinist Francis Koene. However, tragedy struck, and Koene died that same year of a brain tumour. Years later, Bosmans confessed that she “died a little bit then” herself.

Casulana and Strozzi: The Excellence of Women

Fieri Consort and Professor Laurie Stras, in partnership with BBC Radio 3 and Kings Place, present newly rediscovered madrigals by Maddalena Casulana for International Women's Day 2022.

In one of the most important musicological discoveries of recent years, the lost Alto partbook of Maddalena Casulana’s 1583 First Book of five-voice madrigals has been found. Living at a time in which women’s creativity was often stifled, Casulana (1544-1590) and her compatriot Barbara Strozzi (1619-1677) were only too aware their music would be judged inferior to men’s. This concert presents Casulana’s madrigals as a fresh perspective on Strozzi’s works, celebrating both composers’ skill with words and music.

Casulana (from the dedication in her first book of 1566):
“these first fruits of mine, flawed as they are…show the world the futile error of men who believe themselves patrons of the high gifts of intellect, which according to them cannot also be held in the same way by women…”

This concert is presented by Hannah French, live from Kings Place, London.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m0014ylx)
Sisters

The Unthank sisters, writers Lucy Holland and Oyinkan Braithwaite and historian and feminist activist Sally Alexander join Shahidha Bari for a conversation about what it means to be a sister on International Women's Day 2022. You could make a family from recent novels depicting sisterhood from Oyinkan Braithwaite's My Sister the Serial Killer, to Daisy Johnson's Sisters and Brit Bennett's The Vanishing Half but literary sisterhood goes back via Jane Austen and the Brontës to Chekhov, King Lear's daughters, Cinderella and Greek myths about the seven sisters who formed the Pleiades, or Antigone and Ismene. And if you're looking at feminist history the idea of the sisterhood has been a cornerstone of political action. Is it right that sisters will have a particular bond and sound if they perform music together? All of this and more in tonight's Free Thinking conversation.

The Unthank sisters will be on tour with their latest album Sorrows Away visiting a range of venues from Norwich, Poole, Northampton, Middlesborough, Belfast, Edinburgh, Dublin and a range of places in between starting on March 13th in Lincoln
Lucy Holland has written Sistersong set in Anglo-Saxon Britannia. She also presents Breaking the Glass Slipper, a podcast celebrating women in genre.
You can hear a reading of Oyinkan's novel My Sister the Serial Killer by Weruche Opia on BBC Sounds https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/series/p08q6q19

This week, Donald Macleod is joined by Bosman’s expert Dr Helen Metzelaar and also Dr Laurien Vastenhout from Amsterdam’s Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide.

Towards the beginning of World War II, Henriëtte Bosmans found herself in great demand as a performer. The turbulence in Europe meant that other pianists, such as Myra Hess, were cancelling their planned visits to Holland. Following the German invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940, Bosmans considered leaving for the USA but decided she couldn’t abandon her now elderly mother. By 1942, Bosmans’s music had been banned by the Dutch National Broadcasting Organisation and there was also an injunction which forbade her from performing. With little income and now relying on friends for food, Bosmans took to performing in illegal concerts; on at least one occasion, she was nearly caught and arrested. A further blow came when her mother Sara was arrested and sent to a transit camp awaiting deportation.

New research into women's history

Sex strikes suggested by Suffragettes, a theatre company devoted to exploring the experiences of women in the UK prison system and the campaign to make women's rights at the heart of human rights and its links with socialist eastern Europe: Naomi Paxton finds out about new research into women's history.

Her guests are:

Tania Shew specialises in the history of feminist thought. She's currently a Scouloudi Fellow at the Institute of Historical Research working on sex strikes and birth strikes as tactics in the British and American women’s suffrage movements, 1890-1920.

Dr Celia Donert is Associate Professor in Central European History at the University of Cambridge. She is writing a book exploring How Women's Rights became Human Rights: Gender, Socialism, and Postsocialism in Global History, 1917-2017.

Caoimhe Mcavinchey is Professor of Socially Engaged and Contemporary Performance at Queen Mary University London. She has been working on a project Clean Break: Women, Theatre Organisation and the Criminal Justice System

Chloë Moss is a playwright who has worked with Clean Break on a number of projects.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0014ysq)
Fashion Stories

Drama, Dressing-up and Droopy & Browns

From a market stall to the devoted followers now, who collect both catalogues and classic designs: Jade Halbert traces the rise of Droopy & Browns, a family business started in the 1970s by Angela Holmes, which at its height had 8 shops, but which folded following Angela's death, aged 50, in 2000. In the 1980s many British designers looked to replicate a lean, monochromatic, almost corporate New York sensibility, Angela Holmes gloried in maximalism and historicism, taking inspiration from Edwardian styles and eighteenth century riding habits.

Producer: Jessica Treen

Jade Halbert lectures at the University of Huddersfield and is a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker on the scheme which turns academic research into radio. You can find another Essay called Not Quite Jean Muir about learning to make a dress on BBC Sounds https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000kgwq

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0014y5k)
Henriette Bosmans (1895-1952)

A British Connection

Bosmans begins to compose again and strikes up a relationship with Benjamin Britten.

Henriëtte Bosmans seemed destined for a life in music from the moment of her birth, in 1895. Her father was the principal solo cellist in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and her mother a piano teacher at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Bosmans developed a flourishing career and won international success with her Concert Piece for Violin and Orchestra. As a concert pianist she performed alongside conductors such as Ernest Ansermet and George Szell.

Bosmans’s mother was a Jew and, although Bosmans didn’t consider herself Jewish, her ancestry played a significant role in the events of her life. She lived through the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, when tens of thousands of Amsterdam Jews were deported to concentration camps, including her fellow citizen, Anne Frank. This week, Donald Macleod is joined by Bosman’s expert Dr Helen Metzelaar and also Dr Laurien Vastenhout from Amsterdam’s Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide.

Once the Second World War had ended, Henriëtte Bosmans and her mother, Sara, emerged exhausted and malnourished but alive. Bosmans soon started to compose again, and found particular inspiration in writing for the voice. In 1946 she witnessed young British composer, Benjamin Britten, perform with Peter Pears and was immediately struck by their artistry. Bosmans began corresponding with Britten and championing his music. She adopted a rather motherly role towards him, sending him presents of chocolate and eggs.

From school to work to the military – uniforms can signal authority and belonging. But what happens when uniforms are worn by those whom institutions normally exclude? Or when they’re used out of context?

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0014y4l)
Henriette Bosmans (1895-1952)

Muse

Donald Macleod looks at Bosmans’s final years including her fiery relationship with the singer, Noëmie Perugia.

Henriëtte Bosmans seemed destined for a life in music from the moment of her birth, in 1895. Her father was the principal solo cellist in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra and her mother a piano teacher at the Amsterdam Conservatory. Bosmans developed a flourishing career and won international success with her Concert Piece for Violin and Orchestra. As a concert pianist she performed alongside conductors such as Ernest Ansermet and George Szell.
Bosmans’s mother was a Jew and, although Bosmans didn’t consider herself Jewish, her ancestry played a significant role in the events of her life. She lived through the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands, when tens of thousands of Amsterdam Jews were deported to concentration camps, including her fellow citizen, Anne Frank. This week, Donald Macleod is joined by Bosman’s expert Dr Helen Metzelaar and also Dr Laurien Vastenhout from Amsterdam’s Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide.

Henriëtte Bosmans was greatly inspired observing the powerful connection between composer, Benjamin Britten and tenor, Peter Pears, and she sought out her own vocal muse. Her heart was captured by the singing of Noëmie Perugia and the two began to perform together. The relationship was far from harmonious, though, and there were frequent arguments between the two. Perugia refused to sing in Dutch, and often refused to sing songs Bosmans composed in other languages, too. For Bosmans’s part, she would deliberately set texts she knew would irritate Perugia. Their relationship only lasted a few years before Bosmans started to suffer from stomach pains. She died of stomach cancer in 1952.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0014y50)
Viktor Ullmann's Der Kaiser von Atlantis

The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Total Immersion 'Music for the End of Time' in January this year centred its focus on the Theresienstadt ghetto of the 1940s. Here many of the finest musical talents of the time were held pawns in an appalling Nazi propaganda exercise, then taken to the concentration camps from which they never returned.

In a second broadcast from that day the BBC Symphony Orchestra, with a fine cast, perform Viktor Ullmann's parody of fascism, the chamber opera Der Kaiser von Atlantis [Plot summary below]. Before this come more musical testaments from Theresienstadt by Hans Krása and Pavel Haas, and a searing symphony by Erwin Schulhoff that warns of impending human catastrophe.

Presented by Georgia Mann
Recorded at the Barbican on 23rd January 2022

Pavel Haas: Study for string orchestra

Plot of Der Kaiser von Atlantis: set in mythical times, centres on the desire and determination of Emperor Overall to rule over the whole world. In the first scene, the Emperor proclaims a universal war, conducting his campaign via a loudspeaker and conscripting his old ally Death to the cause. But Death denounces the Emperor for usurping his role and refuses to participate in the slaughter by stating unequivocally that people cannot die. The Emperor is shocked by Death’s response and in particular by his refusal to carry out executions. In Scene 2 a mysterious epidemic breaks out. Yet, although many people are mortally wounded, nobody is able to die. The next scene takes place on the battlefield, but the conflict of arms brings about a completely unexpected result. Instead of fighting each other, a male soldier and a female soldier sing a love duet. With the final scene we return to the empty palace where the Emperor is sitting alone. He is becoming increasingly alarmed by the reports of the chaos ravaging the country and that the sick and suffering are unable to die. In desperation, he looks in the mirror and sees Death reflected there. Death is now prepared to resume his work, but on the condition that the Emperor agrees to be his first victim. After some initial resistance, the Emperor accepts Death’s invitation and is then led away.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0014y52)
Fashion Stories

Boy with a Pearl Earring

"Delight in disorder" was celebrated in a poem by Robert Herrick (1591-1674) and the long hair, flamboyant dress and embrace of earrings that made up Cavalier style has continued to exert influence as a gender fluid look. Lauren Working's essay considers examples ranging from Van Dyck portraits and plays by Aphra Behn to the advertising for the exhibition called Fashioning Masculinities which runs at the Victoria and Albert museum this spring.

Fashioning Masculinities: The Art of Menswear is at the V&A from March 19th 2022.
Radio 3 broadcast a series of Essays from New Generation Thinkers exploring Masculinities which you can find on BBC Sounds https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00061jm

Debit’s Mixtape

Verity Sharp shares a mixtape from Mexican-American composer and producer Debit, also known as Delia Beatriz. A visual artist and musician since childhood, Debit started making DIY hardware and circuit-bending music in 2012. After collaborating with the groundbreaking label and collective N.A.A.F.I. in Mexico City, she moved to New York. Her work has previously fused ambient techno and dissonance with reggaeton, baile funk and other latin-based club beats. But after researching Mayan wind instruments at the archive for Mayan studios in Mexico City, Debit’s latest album, ‘The Long Count’ intermingles the whistles, ocarinas, flutes and trumpets of the ancient past, with Artificial Intelligence techniques of the future.

Elsewhere in the show… new, experimental, spoken word from London’s Lou Hill, the antiphonal bird song of Laura Cannell’s local woodland, glowing Montreal post-punk and a Sonic Youth shaped treat.
