9.30am Building A Library: William Mival on Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony

Dedicated to 'dem lieben Gott' (the beloved God), Bruckner's monumental Ninth Symphony in D minor was intended to be the culmination of his life's work. Bruckner began working on the Ninth Symphony in the summer of 1887, immediately after finishing his Eighth, but he died in 1896 before finishing the fourth and final movement. Nonetheless, Bruckner's Ninth Symphony is often performed as a mighty, visionary large-scale three-movement work. Shimmering strings and low brass start the opening movement, Feierlich, misterioso, followed by the Scherzo and an achingly expansive Adagio.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m001323n)
Ludovico Einaudi, Peter Grimes, Anna Clyne

Ahead of a new production of Britten's Peter Grimes at the Royal Opera House, Sara Mohr-Pietsch hears from members of the creative team bringing this compelling tale of an outsider to life, in a post-pandemic, 21st-century context.

The composer Anna Clyne also talks to Sara about her latest work, including a Handel-inspired piece to be premiered later this month by the Academy of Ancient Music and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain.

As the situation in Ukraine continues, Sara looks talks to Peter Gelb, general manager of the Metropolitan Opera in New York, about the company's parting of ways with Russian soprano Anna Netrebko, and to conductor Thomas Sanderling about the decision to leave his post at the Novosibirsk Philharmonic Orchestra, asking the question of how one effectively balances art and politics.

And the phenomenally successful Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi joins Sara from his home studio in the Italian Alps, where the pandemic allowed a break in his usual hectic schedule to reappraise his creative process.

Producer: Sam Hickling

Cathy Thompson is a versatile violinist and a composer - a leading session musician who has played with groups ranging from the Medici String Quartet to the New Blood Orchestra.

Today, Cathy shares her unique experience of recording music from a huge range of genres, including the rising and falling inner string parts that characterise Joni Mitchell’s latest recording of her song ‘Both Sides Now’, to the physically exhausting but exhilarating music of Michael Nyman.

She also reveals a piece that keeps her moving, and explains why sometimes you have to bring jazz techniques to a Debussy sonata.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0015ckh)
Handel's Rodelinda

One of Handel’s most successful operas when first performed in 1725, and one of his most highly regarded in recent times, Rodelinda is an involving, taut, and remarkably modern drama. Much of its power lies in the appeal of its protagonist, a realistic portrait of a woman rather than an allegorical type, and every character is driven by dramatically credible motivations and the human emotions that accompany them, all masterfully captured in Handel’s music, by turns subtle and bold.

Bertarido has been driven from his kingdom by Grimoaldo and is presumed dead, leaving behind his grieving wife, Rodelinda. Grimoaldo will imprison Rodelinda unless she agrees to marry him, thereby allowing him to seize Bertarido's throne for himself. But then the exiled king returns in disguise.

Soprano Elza van den Heever takes the title role, with countertenor Iestyn Davies as her husband Bertarido whose throne has been seized by Grimoaldo (tenor Paul Appleby), now betrothed to Bertarido's sister Eduige (mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke). Harry Bicket, a champion of the composer’s operas, takes the podium to conduct the Met’s moving production.

Presented by Debra Lew Harder with commentator Ira Siff.

SUNDAY 20 MARCH 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m00120vc)
Alternate states

Corey Mwamba presents electronic and found sounds conjuring new worlds. Drummer and composer Tyshawn Sorey teams up with synthesist and producer King Britt for polyrhythmic time travelling; vintage East Coast club sounds collide with in-the-moment improvisation, dazzling drum and bass and sharp breaks on an electronic plane.

Also exploring alternate states are the duo of double bassist Una MacGlone and pianist Jim McEwan, who take inspiration from the remote environs of the Scottish Hoy coastal lines and North Sea that surrounds it. The pair fuse their playing with the sounds of objects including radios, tape recorders and crinkly bags, journeying inwards to explore the experience of different psychological states.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0015cm3)
Misan Harriman

Misan Harriman didn’t become a photographer till five years ago, when his wife gave him a camera for his fortieth birthday. Since then he’s become world-famous, photographing celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Cate Blanchett, and Meghan Markle – his was the romantic black-and-white photograph of Harry and Meghan announcing her pregnancy last year. Alongside these high-profile celebrity commissions, he’s also become a photographer known for documenting Extinction Rebellion, anti-Trump protests, and the Black Lives Matter movement. In 2020 he became the first black person in the 104-year history of British Vogue to shoot the cover of its prestigious September issue; last year he became the Chair of the Southbank Centre, the renowned arts complex in London.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Misan talks about his journey to become a photographer, from early childhood in Nigeria to his time at an English boarding school. He reveals his “superpower” of dyslexia, and how he’s found a new way of shooting portraits in lockdown: “remote photography”.

Misan Harriman is a passionate film buff, and all his music choices come from movies that have made a profound impression on him, from the soundtrack to “Ghost” which he saw as a boy, to William Walton’s score for “Henry V” and the moving Dunkirk scene in “Atonement”.

The Judgement of Paris

At the turn of the 18th century, a contest was announced in an attempt was made to kick-start the operatic scene in London. The brief was to set an all-sung English opera based on William Congreve's short libretto: The Judgement of Paris. An alluring 100 guineas was promised to the winner, and four contestants entered the competition: John Weldon, John Eccles, Daniel Purcell and Gottfried Finger.

Each entry was given an individual premiere before all four were staged on one night - a grand finale at Dorset Garden Theatre on 3 June 1701. The competition was judged by a public vote... what could possibly go wrong?

Hannah French explores the music and stories of the four entries.

Vikings

The Edda, Noggin, Wagner, Neil Gaiman - today's programme journeys into the realms of Norse gods and mythology, and the seafaring Scandinavian warrior people who conjured them - the Vikings. The name 'Viking' is an Old Norse term meaning a pirate raid, and their invasions sent terror into the hearts of many but new archaeological finds are changing our understanding of this civilisation. Our readers are Leo Suter, star of the new Netflix TV series Vikings: Valhalla, and Natalie Simpson, and our readings include extracts from novels by Neil Gaiman and Douglas Adams. In his poem, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow conjures a Viking skeleton to life in full gothic horror, and P.G. Wodehouse muses on the Viking notion of going "Berserk". And in the beginning was the Edda - the ancient Scandinavian poetry that first recorded the myths of the gods such as Odin, Thor, Loki and Angrboda.

The music includes classics such as Grieg's Peer Gynt and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries into Valhalla (the realm of the Viking gods), Jon Leif's choral epic inspired by the Edda, contemporary Scandinavian composers including Ola Gjeilo and Rebecca Karijord, and Moondog, the New York-based "Viking of 6th Avenue".

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0015ds7)
The Emperor and the Pianola

The Emperor and the Pianola

This Between the Ears odyssey weaves together the music - ragtime, classical and jazz - that Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia and his family and Royal Court used to play and listen to on their pianola when exiled at Fairfield House in Bath between 1936 and 1941, with the story of the Emperor himself, as told by those who knew him then, and the different communities - Rastafari, Bath Ethnic Minority Senior Citizens, visitors of the Ethiopian Coptic Church - that use the former home of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie today; a home he bequeathed to the citizens of Bath after he regained his country from Mussolini.

Professor Shawn Sobers of the University of the West of England, Director of the Freedom in the City Festival of Learning - a seven-month festival exploring Ethiopian and Rastafari cultures - and Trustee of Fairfield House CIC in Bath, is our guide for this fascinating story. And the Emperor's pianola, once lost without trace, is now found, restored and played for the first time since the late 1930s/early 1940s at a celebratory gathering at Fairfield House.

For the Emperor, the pianola and its music were his solace of the soul at a time of great uncertainty and turmoil as his country fought the fascist invaders, now reunited at last.

The pianola, like Haile Selassie's exile itself, served to build bridges between communities of different faiths, cultures and nationalities and all through the healing power of music. It continues to do so today.

His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, Emperor of Ethiopia, King of Kings, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, was a man described as the 'conscience of the world' and 'Father of Africa'.

The Emperor and the Pianola is a Reel Soul Movies production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0015jdf)
Middlemarch Monologues

Middlemarch is an extraordinary 19th century novel about provincial lives during significant social change, such as the building of new railways. It creates an engrossing web of individual experiences in an unidentified Midlands town, largely modelled on Coventry, where Warwickshire born George Eliot lived for a time.

These bold new Middlemarch Monologues weave together eight 21st-century voices. Covid 19, Brexit, HS2 and Black Lives Matter feature, mirroring the social upheavals of George Eliot’s day. The characters are updated versions of the originals. Dorothea Brooke becomes Thea, ardent climate change activist struggling with mental health; Dr Lydgate meets and falls heavily for Rosanna Vincy, beautiful South Asian social media influencer and thwarted pianist; Will Ladislaw is a Jamaican-Polish-heritage writer-cum-postman, hurt by the acts of racism filling up his social media and working out what to do about it. There are subtle references to the book and George Eliot lines to be found within the monologues.

SUN 23:00 The Electronic Century with Gabriel Prokofiev (m000rmkx)
Blurring the Lines

In the 21st-century electronics have become part of the language of classical music in complex ways. Works for string ensemble are devised to emulate the dance floor while purely electronic sample libraries are being used for orchestral arrangements in the film world. Electronic sound is completely enmeshed in both our understanding of music and in contemporary methods of music making. What does this mean for composition?

We hear ‘Ecstasio’, the third movement from contemporary composer Thomas Adès’s piece Assyla, which references techno without using any electronics at all. And Gabriel demonstrates how his own classical works have been heavily influenced by electronic music, often using acoustic instruments to imitate the bass lines and melodic phrasing from dance music.

Electronic artists can struggle to translate their studio productions into live performance. We explore some of the current composers and artists using innovative performance ideas to get around the challenges of performing electronics live, including Mexican composer Javier Álvarez and Congolese group KOKOKO! Finally we look to the future with work that explores the boundaries between human and machine composition with artists Holly Herndon and Jennifer Walshe, who are using machine learning as a creative partner within their work.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000spmy)
Richard Strauss (1864-1949)

The Making of a Composer

Donald Macleod charts Richard Strauss’s precocious early years, with music including his First Symphony, which was written in his last year at school.

During Richard Strauss’s lifetime the sound and form of music altered radically. He was born at the tail end of the 19th century and saw the emergence of twelve-tone music and atonality from younger composers like Arnold Schoenberg and his pupil Alban Berg. Strauss belonged to a previous generation and his music came to be regarded as conservative in style, but at the start of his career, Strauss had been seen as something of a modernist, breaking the mould with his series of innovative orchestral tone poems, and with the dissonant sound world of operas such as Salome and Elektra.

This week Donald Macleod follows the young Strauss’s pathway leading up to and including the tone poems, seeing how an immersion in music across his formative years influenced his ideas about orchestral writing, as well as opening up opportunities that helped him to establish a professional career as a conductor.

Having written his first compositions aged five, Richard Strauss’s raw musical talent was discovered early on. His progress continued at such a rate that by 11 he was conducting an amateur orchestra, and by 18 he’d written something in the region of 150 works.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0015cxq)
Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra

Petr Popelka, chief conductor of the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, conducts the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra in this highlight from the European concert season.

The programme opens with the Concerto for Violin, Piano and Orchestra that Bohuslav Martinů wrote in New York in 1953. The piece bears the typical features of its composer’s later work, combining restless expanses with simple intimate melodies.

After the interval, the concert continues with a contemporary composer's response to the work of one of the greats of musical history.

Wolfgang Rihm wrote Ernster Gesang (Serious Song) in the 1990s at the behest of conductor Wolfgang Sawallisch, as a composition intended specifically to be played before the music of Johannes Brahms.

At the time, Rihm sought inspiration in Brahms's later songs and piano pieces, the harmonies of which enchanted him with their "sharpness and at the same time dark sweetness". He derived the title from the Four Serious Songs that Brahms wrote for bass and piano a year before his death in Vienna. Rihm's introverted, lyrical work prepares the atmosphere for one of Brahms's greatest works: the Symphony No. 3 in F major, written in the summer of 1883 in the spa town of Wiesbaden.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000sqzd)
Richard Strauss (1864-1949)

A Public Debut

Donald Macleod charts Strauss’s early years, including his Second Symphony and Burleske, a work for piano that was initially described by its first performer as being unpianistic.

During Richard Strauss’s lifetime the sound and form of music altered radically. He was born at the tail end of the 19th century and saw the emergence of twelve-tone music and atonality from younger composers like Arnold Schoenberg and his pupil Alban Berg. Strauss belonged to a previous generation and his music came to be regarded as conservative in style, but at the start of his career, Strauss had been seen as something of a modernist, breaking the mould with his series of innovative orchestral tone poems, and with the dissonant sound world of operas such as Salome and Elektra.

This week Donald Macleod follows the young Strauss’s pathway leading up to and including the tone poems, seeing how an immersion in music across his formative years influenced his ideas about orchestral writing, as well as opening up opportunities that helped him to establish a professional career as a conductor.

In his early 20s, Strauss was appointed assistant conductor to Hans von Bülow, then the music director of the influential Meiningen Court Orchestra. It was to turn into one of the most inspirational periods of his life.

Schumann went on to rewrite the first and second movements by Brahms and Dietrich to create his own third violin sonata, his last major work. The concert closes with Brahms dramatic third and final violin sonata.
Recorded at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.

Richard Strauss (1864-1949)

Practical Improvements

Donald Macleod explores Richard Strauss’s rather fraught early years as third conductor at the Munich Opera, with music including his orchestral tone poem Tod und Verklärung.

During Richard Strauss’s lifetime the sound and form of music altered radically. He was born at the tail end of the 19th century and saw the emergence of twelve-tone music and atonality from younger composers like Arnold Schoenberg and his pupil Alban Berg. Strauss belonged to a previous generation and his music came to be regarded as conservative in style, but at the start of his career, Strauss had been seen as something of a modernist, breaking the mould with his series of innovative orchestral tone poems, and with the dissonant sound world of operas such as Salome and Elektra.

This week Donald Macleod follows the young Strauss’s pathway leading up to and including the tone poems, seeing how an immersion in music across his formative years influenced his ideas about orchestral writing, as well as opening up opportunities that helped him to establish a professional career as a conductor.

Following a hasty departure by his boss, Hans von Bülow, in 1886 Strauss left his position at Meiningen to join Munich Court Opera. The experience proved to be a steep learning curve.

Haydn's The Creation

Haydn's The Creation conducted by Harry Christophers with the London Symphony Chorus and Orchestra and an all-star team of soloists in a performance sung in English to mark the 40th anniversary of the Barbican Centre.

Out of chaos comes wonder; from darkness, light. Haydn’s oratorio The Creation is more than just a gloriously tuneful retelling of the Book of Genesis. Inspired by Haydn’s visits to London and the optimism of the Enlightenment, it’s a celebration of the act of creativity itself, overflowing with majesty, humour and the joy of life.

With its famous depictions of Chaos through the dawning of light to a tawny lion, a flexible tiger and a nimble stag and the great chorus, ‘The Heavens are telling', the work has been a favourite since its first performance some 224 years ago.

After Dark Festival: Equinox

Matthew Sweet and his guests launch the After Dark Festival - an overnight extravaganza recorded at Sage Gateshead for the equinox weekend. What meanings and interpretations has humanity given to the moment when the length of day and night is equal and to other key points of the solar year? Cosmologist Carlos Frenk from Durham University, archaeologist Penny Bickle from the University of York, Kevin Lapping from the Pagan Federation and his daughter Bex discuss the significance of the changing seasons, what we learn from the solar alignment of Neolithic monuments and the vaster galactic and cosmic cycles that are we are also a part of.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000srbb)
Richard Strauss (1864-1949)

The Wagner Disciple

Donald Macleod considers Richard Strauss’s move to the Weimar Court Opera, and the ideas and philosophical discussions that led to Also sprach Zarathustra.

During Richard Strauss’s lifetime the sound and form of music altered radically. He was born at the tail end of the 19th century and saw the emergence of twelve-tone music and atonality from younger composers like Arnold Schoenberg and his pupil Alban Berg. Strauss belonged to a previous generation and his music came to be regarded as conservative in style, but at the start of his career, Strauss had been seen as something of a modernist, breaking the mould with his series of innovative orchestral tone poems, and with the dissonant sound world of operas such as Salome and Elektra.

This week Donald Macleod follows the young Strauss’s pathway leading up to and including the tone poems, seeing how an immersion in music across his formative years influenced his ideas about orchestral writing, as well as opening up opportunities that helped him to establish a professional career as a conductor.

After the disappointment of a lukewarm response to his first opera, Strauss was to discover that a promotion to the top position of music director would not be supported by the officials in Weimar.

Richard Strauss (1864-1949)

Overwork in a Difficult Business

Donald Macleod assesses the enormous demands of Richard Strauss’s appointment to the Berlin Court Opera, with music including the vast canvas of his tone poem Ein Heldenleben.

During Richard Strauss’s lifetime the sound and form of music altered radically. He was born at the tail end of the 19th century and saw the emergence of twelve-tone music and atonality from younger composers like Arnold Schoenberg and his pupil Alban Berg. Strauss belonged to a previous generation and his music came to be regarded as conservative in style, but at the start of his career, Strauss had been seen as something of a modernist, breaking the mould with his series of innovative orchestral tone poems, and with the dissonant sound world of operas such as Salome and Elektra.

This week Donald Macleod follows the young Strauss’s pathway leading up to and including the tone poems, seeing how an immersion in music across his formative years influenced his ideas about orchestral writing, as well as opening up opportunities that helped him to establish a professional career as a conductor.

Strauss conducted some 25 operas a season at Berlin, but these pressures did not diminish the scale and vision of his compositional projects.

Total Immersion: Frank Zappa

Few have influenced music like Frank Zappa. Now the 20th-century titan becomes the focus of a BBC Symphony Orchestra Total Immersion Day, recorded last Saturday at the Barbican Centre. Ever the experimentalist, Zappa’s music explores influences as diverse as classical modernism, free improvisation, rock and roll virtuosity and cultural satire. Expect the unexpected in an evening of performances where Brad Lubman conducts the BBC SO and the Guildhall's Ubu Ensemble, led by Simon Wills, explores the ensemble music.

Following a diagnosis of terminal cancer, in 1991 Zappa agreed to appear as a featured composer at the Frankfurt Festival the next year. What started as a cautious collaboration turned into an inspired one when Zappa started working with the German contemporary music orchestra, Ensemble Modern. The concerts that followed have gone down in history, thanks in part to The Yellow Shark. The Ubu Ensemble performs works that rhapsodize on Zappa’s intense, disciplined interest in classical counterpoint, and by the composer’s beloved Edgard Varèse and Igor Stravinsky.

For Frank Zappa, the symphony orchestra was the consummate vehicle for musical storytelling. Brad Lubman leads this live-streamed evening culminating in Zappa’s acknowledged orchestral masterpieces. In 1983, Zappa hired the London Symphony Orchestra and recorded 90 minutes of his freest, most imaginative and most wickedly entertaining music with the ensemble. Included on the album was the tear-away invention of Pedro’s Dowry, a frantic piece that obsesses over repeated fragments with all the primary-coloured brilliance of a cartoon soundtrack. This rampant hyperactivity finds the perfect counterbalance in Sad Jane, which is presented alongside its companion piece Bob in Dacron.

Mo ‘n Herb’s Vacation is one of Zappa’s most accomplished large-scale orchestral works. Within its three-movement, theme and variations structure, beauty and aggression mingle, paradoxically embodying the sort of ‘sophisticated’ musical archetype Zappa loved to mock. The concert opens with music by Igor Stravinsky, one of Zappa’s principal musical inspirations.

Presented by Andrew McGregor with guests including Zappa expert Ben Watson.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0015cz6)
After Dark Festival: Late Junction

Join the Late Junction team in Newcastle at the After Dark Festival, as Verity Sharp and Jennifer Lucy Allan bring you a selection of highlights from our stage at the Star & Shadow in collaboration with Tusk.

The After Dark festival, from BBC Radio 3 and Sage Gateshead, is a celebration of alternative music taking place over the weekend of the Spring Equinox and shining a light on creativity in the North East. We bring you highlights from Friday night at the Star & Shadow, a special line-up curated by Late Junction and Tusk Music featuring Iceboy Violet, Nyati Mayi & The Astral Synth Transmitters and Yeah You. Plus from Saturday night, Jennifer Lucy Allan speaks to the legendary folk singer-songwriter Vashti Bunyan about her new memoir.

Iceboy Violet is a Manchester-based producer, vocalist and DJ. A key player in the experimental scene in Manchester, their sound combines dark brooding electronics with a powerfully raw vocal delivery. Inspired by the energy and resistance of Grime music, their lyrics are honest and vulnerable, warping the genre in a way that aims to challenge toxic masculinity and heteronormativity.

Nyati Mayi & The Astral Synth Transmitters is the project of Belgo-Congolese multi-instrumentalist and singer Nyati Mayi, and Brussels DJ, producer and musician soFa elsewhere. Rooted in improvisation and free music, their sound is heavily percussive and vocal led, with influences including ‘90s hip hop, folk, Congolese rhythms and dub.

Yeah You are Newcastle father-daughter duo of Elvin Brandhi and Gustav Thomas. Inspired by everything from noise pop to black metal, the pair have been improvising and recording together since Brandhi was a teenager. Their work is almost entirely improvised and spontaneous, with Brandhi letting loose stream-of-consciousness vocals over distorted rhythms and warped electronics.
