SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0015l5p)
Klaus Mäkelä

To coincide with the release of his debut recording of all seven of Jean Sibelius’s symphonies, Tom Service talks to 26-year-old Finnish conductor, Klaus Mäkelä, about his meteoric rise as conductor of the Orchestre de Paris and the Oslo Philharmonic.

In response to the government’s levelling up agenda, Tom also talks to Professor Katy Shaw about her own report “The Case for Culture” – the role that culture can be playing. Plus, Tom hears from Angie Burnett of Grimsby Central Hall and Scott O’Hara, director of the Seed organisation in Somerset about their own experiences when it comes to funding and government support.

Author and violinist, Brendan Slocumb, also joins Tom from Washington DC to discuss the success and subject of his debut novel, The Violin Conspiracy, a thriller that draws heavily on Brendan’s own experiences of racial discrimination.

This weekend marks the culmination of Radio 3’s After Dark Festival broadcasts, with a unique 5 hour edition of Night Tracks that was recorded live last weekend from Sage Gateshead. Tom talks to presenter Hannah Peel about her own dream-like experience there and also hears from DJ and sound artist, Jason Singh and explores his concept of music-making for different times of the day.

Producer: Calantha Bonnissent

Natacha Atlas in concert

Jumoké Fashola presents concert highlights from Egyptian-Belgian singer Natacha Atlas, recorded live at Tampere Jazz Happening. Natacha blends Western and Arabic vocal traditions with jazz motifs, offering a unique sound born of her heritage. She began her career in the 90s as a vocalist with Transglobal Underground, before exploring other genres including jazz, playing with the likes of Nitin Sawhney and Omar Sosa. Here Natacha plays music from her eleventh release, ‘Strange Days’. Sung in both English and Arabic, it brings her jazz explorations to the forefront. She’s joined by Asaf Sirkis on drums, Andy Hamill on bass, Samy Bishai on violin, trumpeter Hayden Powell and pianist Alcyona Mick.

Inspired by Natacha’s approach, Jumoké shares some classic tracks and a selection of the best new releases by North African and Middle Eastern jazz artists.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (m0015ly5)
Verdi's Don Carlos

From the New York Metropolitan Opera: the original 1867 five-act French version of Verdi’s epic opera of doomed love among royalty, set against the backdrop of the Spanish Inquisition.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a world-beating cast of opera’s leading lights, including tenor Matthew Polenzani in the title role, soprano Sonya Yoncheva as Élisabeth de Valois, and mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton as Eboli. Bass-baritones Eric Owens and John Relyea are the King of Spain Philippe II and the Grand Inquisitor, and baritone Etienne Dupuis rounds out the all-star principal cast as Rodrigue.

Verdi’s longest and most ambitious opera offers a profound look at the intersection of the personal and the political spheres. The opera features a number of complex one-on-one confrontations, and the chorus, when it appears, is imposing, most notably in the central auto-da-fé. The grandeur of the score telescopes in Acts 4 and 5 to the individuals, with magnificent and melodically rich solo scenes.

Presented by Debra Lew Harder with commentator Ira Siff.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0015l3r)
Richard Holloway

Richard Holloway, former Bishop of Edinburgh, talks to Michael Berkeley about faith, doubt, compassion and the powerful emotions stirred up by his favourite music.

In 1948, at the age of just 14, Richard Holloway left his home in a small town near Glasgow to train for the priesthood at an Anglican monastery in Nottinghamshire. Nearly four decades later, after working in some of Scotland’s most deprived inner-city parishes, he was appointed Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Church of Scotland. But in 2000 he resigned, unable any longer to reconcile his religious doubts, and his views, especially on gay rights, with church orthodoxy.

As he’s navigated his unusual spiritual journey he’s remained an honest, compassionate voice, cutting through dogma and unafraid to engage with uncertainty and celebrate our humanity.

Richard Holloway has presented many radio series and has written 33 books, the latest being Stories We Tell Ourselves: Making Meaning in a Meaningless Universe, an exploration of how we can try to make sense of our fleeting lives in a post-religious world.

For Richard Holloway, listening to music is a deeply emotional experience; he chooses pieces by Rachmaninov, Elgar and Brahms, and a psalm and a hymn that bring back powerful memories of life in the seminary as a teenager.

And Robert Burns’ Ca’ the Yowes reminds him of the joy of singing with his family around the kitchen table.

Born in 1572, his life spanned the end of the Tudor period, the beginning of the reign of the Stuarts and the execution of Charles I to whom he dedicated his Sad Pavan: for these distracted times.

Movies

Bogey, Marilyn, Laurel and Hardy, Judy Garland and Fred Astaire all make an appearance in today's programme celebrating the movies as the Academy Awards are handed out this weekend. The programme include poems by Anthony Brode, Sharon Olds, Jack Mitchell and Roger McGough and prose by Raymond Chandler, Katherine Mansfield and F Scott Fitzgerald. The music draws from Max Steiner's score for Casablanca, vintage Erich Korngold, Bernard Herrmann; songs by Elizabeth Lutyens and Francis Poulenc, and film inspired music for the concert hall by John Adams, Charles Koechlin and Arnold Schoenberg. The Kinks look back to their Celluloid Heroes and there's Hitchcock inspired music by Danny Elfman and from John Williams's Star Wars.

The readers are no strangers to the world of film - Robert Powell and Amanda Donohoe.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0015l40)
Krishnamurti in England

The artist Paul Purgas reassesses the legacy of spiritual teacher and writer Jiddu Krishnamurti.

“One has to be light oneself. You cannot have light from another. God, or by saviours and Buddhas, it cannot be handed down to another.”

In over 60 years of public speaking and writing, Krishnamurti influenced the likes of Aldous Huxley, Bruce Lee and Jackson Pollock, recorded conversations with Iris Murdoch and David Bohm, was friends with Igor Stravinsky, and was described by the Dalai Lama as “one of the greatest philosophers of the age”. So why has he faded from view? And in a world that is gripped by division, crisis and confusion, what might we gain from paying more attention to his words?

“A mind that is self-concerned with its own ambitions, greed, fears, guilt, suffering, has no capacity to love.”

After becoming interested in esoteric writing as a teenager in Bristol, Paul Purgas was struck by the story of an apparently unremarkable young boy from Chennai who had been transformed into the World Teacher of Humankind by the Theosophical Society, sent to England to be groomed into his role, before renouncing the position and striking out on his own. Coming from a household with both Hindu and Sikh religions, Paul was interested in Krishnamurti’s perspective as a South Asian spiritual voice speaking outside of the constructs of organised religion.

Purgas is intrigued by Krishnamurti’s role in the Anglo-Indian cultural exchange that was a formative part of British Modernism in the early decades of the 20th century. And he reappraises the legacy of Krishnamurti’s message, expounded from his departure from theosophy in 1929, right up to his death in 1986. Purgas visits Brockwood Park in Hampshire, home to one of the schools that Krishnamurti founded in the 1960s to educate students in accordance with his outlook. What effect does this schooling have on young minds and their outlook on themselves and the world?

"Truth is a pathless land": Paul reflects on the apparent simplicity and tangled paradoxes of Krishnamurti’s words: the self-professed anti-guru who couldn’t help build a worldwide following; who renounced the idea of a path to truth but laid out his own method of enlightenment; who demanded radical change but eschewed collective activism; who addressed age-old human preoccupations of fear, sorrow and pleasure, while weaving in his interest in cybernetics, psychology and quantum physics.

There are questions, though: Can universalist ideas on freedom be taken seriously from the mouth of a man privileged through elite education, status and wealth? And how does his individualist message sit in a world beset by crises that seem to demand collective action?

Paul reflects on Krishnamurti’s work as a creative manifesto, not just for artists like himself, but for the world at large.

With contributions from pianist Maria João Pires, literature professor Elleke Boehmer, writer and musician T M Krishna, the staff and students from the school and foundation at Brockwood Park, and archive recordings of Krishnamurti’s public talks and interviews.

Hall of Mirrors

Book by Robert Hudson and Music and Lyrics by Susannah Pearse
Arrangements and Musical Direction by Tim Sutton

Robert Hudson and Susannah Pearse bring us a musical about the great economist John Maynard Keynes and his journey through the great crises of the early 20th century. Dreams of freedom battle demands for vengeance as clashing cultures come alive in a kaleidoscope of songs, ranging from folk to power pop.

We begin in Paris in 1919. Keynes is convinced that the Peace Treaty of Versailles is going to be a disaster; inadvertently creating inequality, fear and populism. Insisting that he will remain a dispassionate observer of events, Keynes befriends the idealistic American delegate Honor Whary, who is determined to build a better world. As Keynes prophesises that Honor's dreams will turn to heartbreak, he is caught off guard when the story takes an altogether more hopeful course.

Jamie Parker, Patsy Ferran and members of the cast perform songs in this sweeping story about nationalism, populists, inequality and how global disasters need bridges not walls.

Keelan Carew

Keelan Carew finds the unlikely connections between five pieces throughout musical history. Tonight what links jazz from the roaring 20s, a fiendishly difficult Rachmaninov piano concerto and the score to the new Batman movie? Keelan has the answers!

A new voice for Radio 3 - Keelan is a pianist and works in musical education with young people:

"I think music is universal, but each of us discovers it through our own special circumstances, so Sounds Connected is a little insight into my path.

"I was the only musician in the house growing up, so ended up with pretty eclectic musical loves. Whether influenced by my passion for the piano and deep-dives into lost keyboard masterpieces – or my sister playing her latest finds on long car journeys, I love finding those unlikely musical connections from Bartok and Afro-beats, or Mongol voices to minimalists."

Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704)

Career Move

Donald Macleod explores the music, and what little is known of the life, of Baroque master Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. Today, Biber runs an errand for his boss, but absconds en route.

Biber was born in the small town of Wartenberg (present-day Stráž pod Ralskem) in Bohemia – now in the Czech Republic, then part of the Holy Roman Empire – where his father worked as gamekeeper for the local bigwig. Biber’s first appearance in the historical records is in his early 20s, when we find him in the service of Karl Liechtenstein, prince-bishop of Olomouc in central Moravia. Liechtenstein was a huge music fan who maintained a first-rate choral and instrumental ensemble at nearby Kroměříž Castle, where he also kept an impressive library of musical scores – to this day, the source of all Biber’s surviving autographs. We’ll probably never know the precise circumstances that drove the 26-year-old Biber to leave the Prince-Bishop’s service so abruptly, but when the opportunity presented itself, he seized it with both hands. Dispatched on a lengthy trek to the Austrian Tyrol to collect some instruments from a celebrated violin-maker there, he only made it around three-quarters of the way: as far as Salzburg, where he did a bunk, trading in his old employer for a new and even more illustrious one, Prince-Archbishop Maximilian Gandolph von Küenburg. In Salzburg, Biber put down roots, married the daughter of a wealthy local businessman, fathered eleven children and gradually rose through the court ranks to become Kapellmeister. His risky career-gamble had paid off.

Ways of Being

Kate Davis on Thomas Hardy

The poet Kate Davis explores the way Thomas Hardy's poem 'Afterwards' has influenced her way of being.

In this series, artists, writers and thinkers tell us about the ways they have been shaped by their ‘ways of being’, their individual bodies – what freedoms they allow, and their sensitivities or limits. They also explore how their work has been shaped and informed by the body, its freedoms and limits. And as many creative people have discovered - limits can lead to originality, and freedoms can offer ‘more of the same’.

Kate is the first of our essayists, who each let us into their particular 'way of being' via their relationship with a cultural touchstone (whether it’s a poem, a singer, a television series, or a story from the Bible). Each tells us about something that has enriched their own creativity, and brought them closer appreciating their own way of being. Kate contracted polio as a child and it has informed her relationship with the ground and with poetry.

Kate's first poetry collection is 'The Girl Who Forgets How to Walk' - she has always lived in the Furness peninsula of south Cumbria.

Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704)

Mystery Man

Donald Macleod explores the music, and what little is known of the life, of Baroque master Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. Today, Biber’s best-known work – his Mystery, or Rosary, Sonatas.

Unpublished during his lifetime and unknown outside of a small circle at the Salzburg court, for more than two centuries Biber’s Rosary Sonatas existed in a single source – a mistake-peppered presentation copy which appears to have passed through the hands of a succession of private collectors before being deposited, eventually, in the Bavarian State Library in Munich. The sonatas – there are 15 of them, organised in three groups of five – describe events in the lives of the Virgin Mary and Jesus, starting with The Annunciation and culminating in The Coronation of the Virgin. Heard as a complete cycle, they take the listener on an emotional journey of extraordinary range and intensity, whose rich and varied palette of colours Biber summons up by means of a technique called scordatura – literally, ‘mis-tuning’. From the second sonata on, Biber deliberately mis-tunes the violin in 14 different ways, resulting in subtly different tone-colours and allowing the performer to play combinations of notes that would be impossible on a normally-tuned instrument. The collection ends with a Passacaglia for unaccompanied violin that while returning to the standard tuning in which it opened, brings the cycle to a transcendent conclusion.

TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0015l7n)
Two groundbreaking string quartets

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents the first concert in a series given by Radio 3 New Generation Artists and recorded at St. George's Bristol earlier this month. The award-winning Van Kuijk Quartet pair two highly expressive works by Mozart and Mendelssohn. Dedicated to his friend Haydn, Mozart's quartet in D minor has an intriguing, rather restless quality. Separated by more than half a century, Mendelssohn's poignant final quartet reflects his deep sorrow at his sister Fanny's death in 1847.

The Van Kuijk Quartet are former Radio 3 New Generation Artists.

Toward the Unknown Region - Vaughan Williams 150

From Bridgewater Hall in Manchester
Presented by Tom McKinney

In the second of six concerts presented in collaboration with the Halle Orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic continue to explore the symphonies of Vaughan Williams. In this concert, the spotlight falls on his Fourth; in Vaughan Williams's words, "not ... a definite picture of anything external - e.g. the state of Europe - but simply because it occurred to me like that." Written between 1931 and 1934, what felt like unexpected dissonance to some listeners did, despite his assertion, reflect the discomfort many felt about the uncertainty of the political situation. Uncertainty frames the faith that is core to the Walt Whitman text Vaughan Williams sets in the music that opens the programme; the Halle choir joins the BBC Philharmonic and Sir Andrew Davis for Toward the Unknown Region, "Darest though now, O soul, walk out with me toward the unknown region, where neither ground is for the feet nor any path to follow?", words which seem to permeate Vaughan Williams's spirituality for the rest of his life. Extra-musical influence from a different medium and century provide the inspiration for music which Vaughan Williams called a masque for dancing, "Job". William Blake's engravings for the biblical book form the basis of nine scenes and the metaphysical interpretation and freedom Blake displays in these unique works inspired Vaughan Williams to create a particularly powerful, intriguing and visionary score.

Ways of Being

David Bower on Tom Waits

Actor David Bower explores his fascination with American singer-songwriter Tom Waits's music and tells us about the way it has influenced his ‘way of being’ as a deaf artist.

In this series, artists, writers and thinkers tell us about the ways they have been shaped by their ‘ways of being’, their individual bodies – what freedoms they allow, and their sensitivities or limits. They also explore how their work has been shaped and informed by the body, its freedoms and limits. And as many creative people have discovered - limits can lead to originality, and freedoms can offer ‘more of the same’.

David is the second of our essayists, who each let us into their particular 'way of being' via their relationship with a cultural touchstone (whether it’s a poem, a singer, a television series, or a story from the Bible). Each tells us about something that has enriched their own creativity, and brought them closer appreciating their own way of being.

David Bower
David is an award-winning actor and the co-founder of a groundbreaking international theatre company called 'The Signdance Collective'. His films have been screened across the globe, and he has been acclaimed for his radio drama performances. He also played Hugh Grant's brother in 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' directed by Mike Newell and written by Richard Curtis.

Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704)

He Who Endures, Wins

Donald Macleod explores the music, and what little is known of the life, of Baroque master Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. Today, Biber’s music for church and stage.

Biber is known to posterity primarily as a composer for the violin, yet much of his time in Salzburg was spent in the production of ecclesiastical and theatrical music. Of his stage works, including at least three operas and fifteen ‘school dramas’, only one has survived, his opera Arminio, or Chi la dura la vince – ‘He who endures, wins’. Its score has certainly endured, but the opera, despite many fine moments, is rarely heard nowadays. Many of Biber’s masterly sacred works were composed with the cavernous spaces of Salzburg Cathedral in mind, and make full use of the spatial possibilities afforded by that monumental building.

A noted interpreter of Liszt, award-winning pianist Mariam Batsashvili's programme celebrates Liszt's interest in literature, his spiritual convictions and his love for his homeland. Liszt prefaced Bénédiction de Dieu dans la solitude with a line taken from the poems of Alphonse de Lamartine, "Whence comes, oh my God, this peace that floods over me". The second of his Hungarian Rhapsodies pays tribute to the gypsy music of his birthland.

Born to a film-making family, Leopoldo Torre Nilsson was the first Argentine film director to be critically acclaimed outside the country. Before he died in 1978 from cancer, aged 54, Torre Nilsson worked alongside his wife Beatriz Guido, a published author, on many of the scripts he turned into successful films. One of them, Martín Fierro (1968), is about the main character of Argentina's national poem. In today's programme Rana Mitter and his guests discuss another - Hand in the Trap - a psychological coming of age story which won the FIPRESCI prize at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival.

Ways of Being

Kate Fox on Doctor Who

Stand-up poet Kate Fox explores her fascination with Doctor Who and the Tardis, and tells us about the way it has influenced her way of being as a neurodiverse artist.

In this series, artists, writers and thinkers tell us about the ways they have been shaped by their ‘ways of being’, their individual bodies – what freedoms they allow, and their sensitivities or limits. They also explore how their work has been shaped and informed by the body, its freedoms and limits. And as many creative people have discovered - limits can lead to originality, and freedoms can offer ‘more of the same’.

Kate is the third of our essayists to let us into their particular 'way of being' via their relationship with a cultural touchstone (whether it’s a poem, a singer, a television series, or a story from the Bible). Each tells us about something that has enriched their own creativity, and brought them closer to appreciating their own way of being.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0003rtq)
Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704)

Preserved in Print

Donald Macleod explores the music, and what little is known of the life, of Baroque master Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. Today, the five remarkable printed collections of instrumental music that spread Biber’s name across Europe.

That music in the western classical tradition has enjoyed, by and large, a relatively good survival rate, is down to the fact that unlike improvised music, it has a system of notation that allows it to be written down. Even so, much music from the past has been lost – a prime example being Bach’s cantatas, of which it’s been estimated that around 40 per cent have gone missing in action. That’s because they existed only in manuscript – often just in a single copy, which could easily be inadvertently mislaid, damaged or destroyed. The manuscript score of Biber’s great Missa Salisburgensis, which is the focus of tomorrow’s programme, nearly ended up as wrapping paper in a Salzburg grocer’s shop; if a local choirmaster hadn’t happened to be dropping by for some groceries at just the right moment, the huge – that’s to say, 82 by 57 cm! – folios of Biber’s magnum opus might very well have been split up and dispersed among dozens of peckish customers, bundled around their Bratwurst, Pumpernickel and Apfelkuchen. The odds of survival are immeasurably lengthened for music that gets into print, ensuring a wide distribution of multiple copies. Only six collections of Biber’s music appeared in print during his lifetime, five of them instrumental; so it was his instrumental music, and particularly his music for violin, that formed the basis of his reputation, both among his contemporaries and for many years after his death.

THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0015m4q)
Romantic songs by Clara and Robert Schumann

Nicola Heywood Thomas introduces the third concert in a series celebrating Radio 3's New Generation Artists. Baritone James Newby and pianist James Baillieu perform a programme that explores love as expressed in 19th-century romantic poetry. Many of Clara Schumann's deeply touching songs were written as presents for her husband Robert. The six songs in her Op 13 collection are paired here with Robert Schumann's masterly song cycle "Dichterliebe", settings of texts by Heinrich Heine that tell the story of a young man's rejection in love. Schumann produced the sixteen songs in a mere ten days during 1840, the year in which the young couple would finally overcome Clara's family's opposition by gaining a court ruling allowing them to marry.
James Newby was a Radio 3 New Generation Artist from 2018 to 2021.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0015m51)
Ways of Being

Rachael Boast on The Book of Job

Poet Rachael Boast explains why the ‘Book of Job’ from the Bible has been so important to her; how it has informed her experience of writing poetry, and her experience a rare genetic condition called ichthyosis.

In this series, artists, writers and thinkers tell us about the ways they have been shaped by their ‘ways of being’, their individual bodies – what freedoms they allow, and their sensitivities or limits. They also explore how their work has been shaped and informed by the body, its freedoms and limits. And as many creative people have discovered - limits can lead to originality, and freedoms can offer ‘more of the same’.

Rachael is the fourth essayist to let us into their particular 'way of being' and into their relationship with a cultural touchstone - whether it’s a poem, a singer, a television series, or a story from the Bible – each tells us about something that has enriched their own creativity, and brought them closer to understanding their own way of being.

Rachael Boast
Poet Rachael Boast's Sidereal won the Forward Prize for Best First Collection - she's a poet whose work gives us ‘the kind of layered time-travel only the best lyric poems allow’ as one reviewer put it. Her fourth poetry collection ‘Hotel Raphael’ is named after the patron saint of healing and pilgrims, and lets us brush against the worlds of artists, writers and filmmakers – as well as the biblical figure of Job. Rachael talks about how Job has informed her experience of ichthyosis - a rare genetic condition that puts her skin under great pressure. She has also come to see the poem itself as language placed under pressure.

Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber (1644-1704)

A Grand Day Out

Donald Macleod explores the music, and what little is known of the life, of Baroque master Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. Today, the focus is on Biber’s magnificent Salzburg Mass.

For many years after its score turned up in a Salzburg grocer’s, the Missa Salisburgensis wasn’t regarded as a work by Biber. The scholars of the Salzburg Mozarteum, to whom the choirmaster who made the momentous discovery took the score for identification, attributed it to one Orazio Benevoli and dated it to 1628, when, it was supposed, the mass was performed at a service for the consecration of the new Salzburg Cathedral. It was not until the 1970s that the attribution to Benevoli was contested, when it was spotted that the watermarks on the score’s paper placed it much later in the century. Further musicological detective-work followed, and nowadays most scholars concur that the Missa Salisburgensis is without doubt the work of Biber, and that it was composed for the service that marked the high-point of a grand eight-day festival not in 1628 but in 1682, when the city celebrated the 1100th anniversary of the founding of the diocese of Salzburg. Our performance was recorded in the monumental space where it was first heard – that of Salzburg Cathedral, rebuilt to its original design after a single Allied bomb destroyed its colossal dome in 1944.

Masterworks for cello and piano

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents the last concert in a series given by Radio 3 New Generation Artists at St. George's Bristol. Recorded last month, cellist Anastasia Kobekina and pianist Jean-Sélim Abdelmoula play the third of Beethoven's cello sonatas and an arrangement of Fauré's Violin Sonata in A. Full of melody and Beethoven's characteristic wit, the third of his five sonatas shows Beethoven writing for cello and piano as equal partners. The appeal of its sunny, lyrical grace made Faure's Violin Sonata in A a natural candidate for a cello arrangement, with the first published version appearing in 1899.

Anastasia Kobekina is a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist

Symphonie Fantastique

When Hector Berlioz saw a performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet featuring an Irish actress named Harriet Smithson as Ophelia, he fell head over heels in love and found his calling in life. In his Symphonie fantastique, Berlioz set out to prove that love while writing a manifesto for French music based on passion, humour, spirit and pride. But Berlioz’s captivating symphonic story would be remembered just as much for its compelling debauchery and torment.

Jordan de Souza brings with him a premonition of Berlioz’s own Witches' Sabbath in the form of Édith Canat de Chizy’s new work Omen, and has both Noriko Ogawa and Kathryn Stott for company in Vaughan Williams’s rarely heard and consistently surprising Concerto for Two Pianos.

Taking Risks

The Verb, Ian McMillan's weekly foray into writing and language, examines the appeal of risk and chance. Risk is inherent to writing every time you put words on paper; whether its risk in the use of form, or language, or subject matter. It's the risk a writer takes when they expose their own lives or the lives of others in their writing. Booker Prize-winning author DBC Pierre talks about his latest book 'Big Snake, Little Snake: An Inquiry into Gambling and Life'; and poet and novelist Helen Mort, who's always been drawn to the thrill and risk of rock climbing, examines how the world views women who aren't afraid to take risks in her new book 'A Line Above the Sky'.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0015lhb)
Ways of Being

Tom Shakespeare on JRR Tolkien

In this series, artists, writers and thinkers tell us about the ways they have been shaped by their ‘ways of being’, their individual bodies – what freedoms they allow, and their sensitivities or limits. They also explore how their work has been shaped and informed by the body, its freedoms and limits. As many creative people have discovered - limits can lead to originality, and freedoms can offer ‘more of the same’.

Tom is the fifth essayist to let us into their particular 'way of being' and into their relationship with a cultural touchstone - whether it’s a poem, a singer, a television series, or a story from the Bible – each tells us about something that has enriched their own creativity, and brought them closer to understanding their own way of being.


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000zbz1)
Natalia Beylis and Anna Homler in session

Jennifer Lucy Allan shares the fruits of our latest Late Junction long distance collaboration session, created across the Atlantic Ocean by two sonic storytellers: Natalia Beylis in County Leitrim and Anna Homler in Los Angeles.

Natalia Beylis is an experimental composer and multi-instrumentalist interested in sounds that appear unexpectedly, often layering and manipulating acoustic instruments with field recordings to create strange juxtapositions. Born in Kiev and raised in the States she moved to Ireland two decades ago, and has been a key figure in the experimental scene there since, with a regular show on Dublin Digital Radio playing ‘experimental bric-a-brac’. Her latest release Invaded by Fireflies is a collage of voices describing memories of a beautiful place.

Anna Homler is an improvising vocalist and avant-garde performance artist from Los Angeles, and has been experimenting with language and sound since the 1980s. Using words as music and everyday objects as instruments, her work explores alternative forms of communication and the poetry of ordinary things. She often performs as her character Breadwoman, a creature she describes as “so very old she has turned into bread” and has her own invented language.

Elsewhere there’ll be previously unreleased woozy, bubbling dancehall from Jamaica, as well as a new compilation of instrumental modal pop from 1970s Egypt. Plus some synth bangers inspired by the anthropological roots of cat's cradles by the artist Kristen Gallerneaux.
