SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0015tyc)
Bobby McFerrin, Mari Kalkun, The Handmaid's Tale

Tom Service talks to virtuoso vocalist Bobby McFerrin about the latest chapter in his musical life and his ceaseless creativity. He’s been inspiring audiences to make music with him during concerts for decades, and now, following a Parkinson’s diagnosis, he is taking this further as he starts to perform live again. Bobby reflects on his early solo shows, the improvisation technique ‘circle singing’ which he developed in the 1980s and whether music can really bring peace to the world.

Folk musician Mari Kalkun comes to the studio with her kannel, a traditional Estonian plucked string instrument with a long history which plays a central role in much of her music. Mari talks to Tom about her personal and artistic response to the war in Ukraine and how musical activism is now an essential part of her role as an artist.

We visit English National Opera to find out more about a new production of Poul Ruders’s The Handmaid's Tale, based on Margaret Atwood’s seminal novel. Tom is joined by director Annilese Miskimmon, mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey who sings Offred and soprano Emma Bell who sings Aunt Lydia, to explore how the story is being brought to life on stage and why it is a shattering story of our times.

Plus conductor and harpsichordist Rinaldo Alessandrini tells us about the irresistible theatrical energy of Vivaldi's 'L'estro armonico' concertos from 1711 and why placing them alongside reworkings by JS Bach on his new recording with his ensemble Concerto Italiano offers a new perspective and a thrilling ride.

She also muses on the benefits of live versus studio performance before hearing Glenn Gould play Bach, and realises that singing Wagner isn’t necessarily all about power.

Plus she remembers how as a small girl she discovered that listening to a Mahler symphony could be fun…

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

Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin

From the New York Metropolitan Opera: James Gaffigan conducts Tchaikovsky's masterpiece, starring Igor Golovatenko in the title role with Ailyn Pérez and Piotr Beczała. At the heart of Pushkin's story is Tatiana, who as a teenager falls for the urbane but cynical nobleman Eugene Onegin. When he cruelly rejects her, Tatiana builds her own life and marries a Prince - and when Onegin meets her again as a strong, mature woman, and realises his mistake, it's too late for both of them.

Presented by Debra Lew Harder with commentator Ira Siff.

SUNDAY 03 APRIL 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0015tyv)
New Frontiers

Corey Mwamba presents improvised music exploring new frontiers in outer space, technology and language. UK trumpeter Nick Walters’s piercing horn meets inventive loops and NASA audio samples from space exploration missions. Here, he draws on unresolved mysteries of outer space, pulling listeners into the centre of black holes and an infant universe freshly reeling from the Big Bang.

British duo Moses Boyd and Binker Golding extend their collaborative partnership to include producer Max Luthert as they venture to more electronic planes for their new album, Feed The Machine. Their improvisational dialogue moves with heightened velocity through modular synth and ambient, minimalist touches.

Also in the programme, travel back in time to the 1970s in Ireland, via the archives of the former Kilkenny Electroacoustic Research Laboratory, an experimental project founded in the mid-1960s by Jacinta Delaney and Eoghan Comerford bringing together cutting-edge technologies, sound studies, early years studies and linguistic research.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0015tzq)
Francesco da Mosto

Michael Berkeley’s guest is the architect, author and broadcaster Francesco da Mosto.

With his shock of white hair, boundless energy and unmistakable accent, Francesco da Mosto is for many of us the quintessential Venetian.

His distant ancestors were some of the first settlers to colonise the swampy islands that were to become Venice, fleeing Attila the Hun in the 5th century, and since then the da Mosto family has been at the forefront of Venetian public life.

One of the team of architects who restored the opera house in Venice after a devastating fire in 1996, Francesco shot to fame with his BBC television series exploring Venice, Italy and the Mediterranean. And with his English wife Jane, he’s at the heart of the campaign to find a sustainable future for this most beautiful and vulnerable city.

Francesco tells Michael about the joys and travails of living in Venice, and about his life in a crumbling palazzo just off the Grand Canal, shared by his parents, his children and more than twenty other Venetian families. And he tells Michael how to cook his favourite Sunday lunch dish.

His music choices are a celebration of Italy, with arias from operas by Puccini and by Verdi; a much loved song by Mina Mazzini; music by Ennio Morricone, Alessandro Marcello, and the most famous Venetian composer of them all: Vivaldi.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000fft0)
More Than the Score

Are the 100s of recordings of each Beethoven symphony (and the thousands upon thousands of live performances over the years) really so very different from each other? Can one interpretation be better than another? What is interpretation and why is it apparently so central to western classical music? Why do we keep coming back for more? With the help of music critic Fiona Maddocks and pianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, Tom Service is on the case.

The Body

From the tattoos on Queequeg in Moby Dick to the schoolboys in Nicholas Nickleby, the diaries of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison to the experience of excavating an Iron Age tomb, medieval manuscripts to studies of the gut - today's programme reflects research into different aspects of the body undertaken by New Generation Thinkers.

As Radio 3 marks the fact that 100 early career academics have now come through the scheme run in conjunction with the Arts and Humanities Research Council to turn research into radio - this episode features new non fiction writing by ten New Generation Thinkers read by the actors Deeivya Meir and Ewan Bailey with published authors Sarah Jackson, Sandeep Parmar, Preti Taneja and Peter Mackay reading their own poems and prose.

The musical pieces range from Mahler to the Delta Rhythm Boys via Scriabin and Missy Mazzoli.

Producer: Torquil MacLeod

I Arrive without Leaving - The Story of Women Surrealist Poets

New Generation Thinker Alexandra Reza tells the little-known story of the early women surrealist poets and writers and how they shaped the surrealist movement.

Surrealism is often associated with visual arts – with melting clocks and headless torsos. But it was in the realm of writing and poetry that surrealist experiments first began. Some of the most radical work was produced by a group of women poets who embraced the movement as a vehicle for innovation and liberation.

“When one is overcome by demoralization and defeat, depressed or on the verge of suicide, that is the time to open one’s Surrealist Survival Kit and enjoy a breath of magical fresh air. To lay out its marvellous contents carefully before you and let them play …” wrote artist, novelist and poet, Leonora Carrington in 1936.

Leonora was one of a group of surrealist women poets who were key thinkers in the build up to and in the decades following the publication of André Breton’s Surrealist Manifesto in 1924. And yet at the time they were often perceived to be muses more than artists in their own right by some of the men in the movement.

Drawing on rare recordings including an interview with Leonora Carrington as well as readings of poems by Méret Oppenheim, Joyce Mansour, Gisèle Prassinos, Claud Cahun and Suzanne Césaire, Alexandra examines how these women writers’ confronted issues of gender identity, the erotic, colonialism and power structures using the tools of surrealism to reimagine the world.

With contributions from contemporary surrealist poets and writers Penelope Rosemont, Beatriz Hausner, Rikki Ducornet, Selena Chambers, Aja Monet and Professor Robin DG Kelley.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m000mrgn)
Beethoven Can Hear You

By Timothy X Atack

Peter Capaldi stars as Ludwig van Beethoven, in an immersive drama first broadcast in 2020 to mark the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

Beethoven is visited by a deaf traveller from another time. The Visitor (Sophie Stone) is shocked to discover that Beethoven can hear; it seems that in this reality the composer never lost his hearing. Beethoven is haunted by the idea his ears could fail him. But the Visitor must make him understand his importance as history’s first deaf composer.

An immersive exploration of Beethoven and his music from writer Timothy X Atack (Forest 404) and with an original score from deaf composer Lloyd Coleman.

SUN 23:00 The Art of Accompaniment (m0015v04)
Quarrelling, Making Up

How is performing music for voice or instrument and piano like a marriage - a relationship of mutual support, differing opinion, conflict, compromise and rapture?

Keval begins the series by exploring music that sets up the synergy of soloist and accompanist in a variety of fascinating and surprising ways: from songs by Schubert, Debussy and Saariaho to chamber music by JS Bach, Brahms and Dutilleux.

---

Pianist Keval Shah explores some of the greatest chamber music and song repertoire - from a compelling and often overlooked viewpoint: that of the so-called 'accompanist'. He “flips” cherished vocal and chamber masterpieces by Brahms, Bach, Schubert, Britten and others - as we gain new insights into their musical genius.

In doing so, Keval explodes myths, challenges, cliches and reinvents the way we approach some of our most cherished masterpieces, whilst introducing listeners to new and exciting frontiers of music-making.

Above all, it’s personal: as listeners get “under the bonnet” of the music in a way that’s engaging, passionate and delivered by an acknowledged leader in their field: one of the world's leading collaborative pianists and Lecturer of Lieder at the Sibelius Academy in Finland.

MON 00:00 Sounds Connected (m0015v07)
Keelan Carew

Keelan Carew finds the unlikely connections between five pieces throughout musical history. Tonight Keelan plots a musical course through hypnotic music by Steve Reich, vibrant Prokofiev, a sad waltz by Sibelius and a stunning collaboration between a Bulgarian choir and Mongolian throat singers.

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."

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0015vrz)
Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004)

Hollywood Beckons

Donald Macleod talks to composer Peter Bernstein about his father, the award-winning Hollywood film composer Elmer Bernstein, beginning today with his father's early years in Hollywood.

Born in 1922, Elmer Bernstein created the music for more than 150 films. His big break was one of Hollywood's biggest pictures, Cecil B DeMille's swan song, the 1955 biblical epic, "The Ten Commandments". At the same time as working on that enormous canvas for DeMille, Bernstein was composing the first in a series of groundbreaking jazz-infused scores, "The Man with the Golden Arm". He went on to write the music for the Hollywood adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird", westerns that include The Magnificent Seven, surely one of the best-known title themes in the history of cinema, before he became the go to composer for John Wayne. His scores for action adventures include "The Great Escape" and a moving depiction of the inner life of a prisoner in "Birdman of Alcatraz". Nominated on numerous occasions, he won an Oscar for "Thoroughly Modern Millie". In the 1980s he delighted younger generations of cinema goers with scores such as "National Lampoon's Animal House", "Ghostbusters" and "Airplane!", before deciding to make a return to more serious drama. Projects with Martin Scorsese included the film of Edith Wharton's novel "The Age of Innocence", and he also created a remarkable portrait of the artist Christy Brown in "My Left Foot". His last score, for which he received a final Oscar nomination, was for Todd Haynes's "Far from Heaven" in 2002. He died just two years later in 2004.

Donald Macleod marks the centenary of this gifted and versatile film composer in conversation with Peter and Emilie Bernstein, two of Elmer Bernstein's children. They offer a fascinating insider's view to the film music industry alongside a personal portrait of their father.

Classically trained as a concert pianist, within five years of arriving in Hollywood Cecil B DeMille was to give Elmer Bernstein the chance to write the music for The Ten Commandments. The veteran director would also support the young composer when Bernstein found himself accused of having "left-wing sympathies".

MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0015vs1)
Alexander Gadjiev plays Schumann and Prokofiev

Live from Wigmore Hall: Alexander Gadjiev plays Schumann and Prokofiev.

Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Alexander Gadjiev tackles two masterpieces of the piano repertoire, written a hundred years apart but both notable for their towering technical and musical challenges. Schumann's Fantasie was dedicated to Franz Liszt and began life as a memorial work for Beethoven, whilst the second of Prokofiev's so-called 'War Sonatas' probably reveals Prokofiev's innermost feelings amid the chaos of war and the Stalinist purges; something hinted at in his quotation of a song by Schumann: "I can sometimes sing as if I were glad, yet secretly tears well and so free my heart."

Presented by Martin Handley

R. Schumann: Fantasie in C Op. 17
Prokofiev: Piano Sonata No. 7 in B flat Op. 83

Already the winner of the Hamamatsu, Monte Carlo and Sydney Piano Competitions, and more recently joint second prizewinner at the 2021 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, the Italian-Slovenian pianist (of Russian descent) also received the Krystian Zimerman Prize on the latter occasion for the best performance of a sonata.

EarthWorks

Wold

Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby explores traces of human history in different landscapes around the British Isles. In ‘Wold’, she discovers layers of human history in Yorkshire’s celebrated chalk hills and describes her involvement in a dig at Thwing on the high Wolds at a Romano-British farmstead, a site which interacts with much older patterns of habitation.

Rose uses the lens of archaeology to reveal our impacts on the world. In EarthWorks she helps us see ourselves within previous patterns of change. Archaeology, we hear, is about imagination, with layers of time revealing people and their stories folded into the earth. At a time of considerable uncertainty about our future, could understanding our past interactions with the environment help us respond and adapt to whatever comes next?

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0015v2z)
Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004)

Firing On All Cylinders

In the second of their conversations Donald Macleod talks to composer Peter Bernstein about his father film composer Elmer Bernstein's projects in the 1960s.

Born in 1922, Elmer Bernstein created the music for more than 150 films. His big break was one of Hollywood's biggest pictures, Cecil B DeMille's swan song, the 1955 biblical epic, "The Ten Commandments". At the same time as working on that enormous canvas for DeMille, Bernstein was composing the first in a series of groundbreaking jazz-infused scores, "The Man with the Golden Arm". He went on to write the music for the Hollywood adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird", westerns that include The Magnificent Seven, surely one of the best-known title themes in the history of cinema, before he became the go to composer for John Wayne. His scores for action adventures include "The Great Escape" and a moving depiction of the inner life of a prisoner in "Birdman of Alcatraz". Nominated on numerous occasions, he won an Oscar for "Thoroughly Modern Millie". In the 1980s he delighted younger generations of cinema goers with scores such as "National Lampoon's Animal House", "Ghostbusters" and "Airplane!”, before deciding to make a return to more serious drama. Projects with Martin Scorsese included the film of Edith Wharton's novel "The Age of Innocence" and a remake of "Cape Fear". Among Bernstein's other projects was the music for "My Left Foot", the film about the artist Christy Brown. His last score, for which he received a final Oscar nomination, was for Todd Haynes's "Far from Heaven" in 2002. He died just two years later in 2004.

Donald Macleod marks the centenary of this gifted and versatile film composer in conversation with Peter and Emilie Bernstein, two of Elmer Bernstein's children. They offer a fascinating insider's view into the film music industry alongside a personal portrait of their father.

From the sleazy atmospheric jazz score for Walk on the Wild Side to the rolling vistas conjured up by The Magnificent Seven to a satirical show on Broadway, the 1960s were a period of creative success and diversification for Elmer Bernstein.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m0015v3c)
Bridgerton and Georgian Entertainment

As the hit period drama Bridgerton returns to Netflix for a second series Shahidha Bari explores what kept the Georgians entertained, from a night at the opera to music lessons at home, strolls in the pleasure gardens, hot air balloons, chess playing Turks, and perhaps most of all - if Lady Whistledown is to be believed - gossip, intrigue, and scandal. And from the Regency romances of Georgette Heyer to contemporary bestselling fiction set in the period, on screen adaptations of Jane Austen, and binge-worthy boxsets like Poldark and Bridgerton, just what is it about the Georgians that we find so enduringly entertaining?

Shahidha’s guests are - musicologist Brianna Robertson-Kirkland who has written a new book about Venanzio Rauzzini, a scandal ridden Italian castrato revered by Mozart who fled the continent to become one of Georgian England’s most celebrated singing teachers and a musical figurehead in the city of Bath. Writer Sophie Coulombeau who has researched Georgian novelist Frances Burney and bluestocking socialite Mary Hamilton. Biographer, playwright and actor Ian Kelly who has played George III in his own play Mr Foote’s Other Leg. And History Film Club podcast presenter Hannah Greig whose credits as a historical consultant in TV and film include The Duchess, Sanditon, and Bridgerton.

Producer: Ruth Thomson

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0015v3f)
EarthWorks

Fen

Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby explores traces of human history in different landscapes around the British Isles. In 'Fen' she is at Must Farm in, near Peterborough, where close attention to the changes in the peat shows how we responded to environmental change in the Bronze Age. It was a time when rising sea levels drove inhabitants to seek higher ground.

Rose uses the lens of archaeology to reveal our impacts on the world. In EarthWorks she helps us see ourselves within previous patterns of change. Archaeology, we hear, is about imagination, with layers of time revealing people and their stories folded into the earth. At a time of considerable uncertainty about our future, could understanding our past interactions with the environment help us respond and adapt to whatever comes next?

Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004)

Behind the Scenes

Today Donald Macleod talks to composer Peter Bernstein about his father film composer Elmer Bernstein's projects in the sixties and seventies and gets an insight into Bernstein's working methods.

Born in 1922, Elmer Bernstein created the music for more than 150 films. His big break was one of Hollywood's biggest pictures, Cecil B DeMille's swan song, the 1955 biblical epic, "The Ten Commandments". At the same time as working on that enormous canvas for DeMille, Bernstein was composing the first in a series of groundbreaking jazz-infused scores, "The Man with the Golden Arm". He went on to write the music for the Hollywood adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird", westerns that include The Magnificent Seven, surely one of the best-known title themes in the history of cinema, before he became the go to composer for John Wayne. His scores for action adventures include "The Great Escape" and a moving depiction of the inner life of a prisoner in "Birdman of Alcatraz". Nominated on numerous occasions, he won an Oscar for "Thoroughly Modern Millie". In the 1980s he delighted younger generations of cinema goers with scores such as "National Lampoon's Animal House", "Ghostbusters" and "Airplane!”, before deciding to make a return to more serious drama. Projects with Martin Scorsese included the film of Edith Wharton's novel "The Age of Innocence" and a remake of "Cape Fear". Among Bernstein's other projects was the music for "My Left Foot", the film about the artist Christy Brown. His last score, for which he received a final Oscar nomination, was for Todd Haynes's "Far from Heaven" in 2002. He died just two years later in 2004.

Donald Macleod marks the centenary of this gifted and versatile film composer in conversation with Peter and Emilie Bernstein, two of Elmer Bernstein's children. They offer a fascinating insider's view into the film music industry alongside a personal portrait of their father.

As well as a hugely successful career as a film composer Elmer Bernstein assumed several leadership roles. He also financed a scheme to preserve Hollywood film scores. Among the music he preserved was Max Steiner's King Kong.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (m0015vns)
China: World Politics, Ink Art and Insomnia

Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is a long time scholar of China. In his new book, The Avoidable War, he argues that it is cultural misunderstanding and historical grievance that make Chinese-US relations so volatile. Rana Mitter asks him how he sees China's current positioning of itself on the world stage. And, in the spirit of better understanding the rich artistic traditions and cultural history of China, we hear from three researchers about the latest thinking on Hong Kong ink art, representations of sleep, Chinese identity and contemporary classical music and insomnia from the cultural revolution to the present day.

Kevin Rudd is President and CEO of Asia Society and a former Prime Minister of Australia. He is a leading international authority on China and began his career as a China scholar, serving as an Australian diplomat in Beijing before entering Australian politics. His latest book is The Avoidable War: The Dangers of a Catastrophic Conflict between the US and Xi Jinping's China.

Alexander Ho is a British-Chinese composer based at the Royal College of Music in London. His work has been commissioned or performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Radio 3 and the Royal Opera House.

Ros Holmes is a lecturer in Chinese Studies at the University of St Andrews. Her research focuses on ideas about sleep and the art and visual culture of 20th-century and contemporary China.

Malcolm McNeill is Director of Postgraduate Diploma in Asian Art at SOAS, University of London. He is a specialist in Chinese painting and he has worked for museums in the UK and Taiwan.

Producer: Ruth Watts

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0015vnv)
EarthWorks

Mountain

Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby explores traces of human history in different landscapes around the British Isles. In ‘Mountain’ she heads for the Lake District and a site of some startling discoveries. She recounts how during the Neolithic, 6000 years ago, skilled workers extracted the hard-wearing greenstone from the Langdales and fashioned axes that have been found throughout the British Isles.

Rose uses the lens of archaeology to reveal our impact on the world. In EarthWorks she helps us see ourselves within previous patterns of change. Archaeology, we hear, is about imagination, with layers of time revealing people and their stories folded into the earth. At a time of considerable uncertainty about our future, could understanding our past interactions with the environment help us respond and adapt to whatever comes next?

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0015v22)
Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004)

Breaking the Mould

Donald Macleod talks with composer Emilie Bernstein about the music her father Elmer wrote for films during the 1980s and 1990s.

Born in 1922, Elmer Bernstein created the music for more than 150 films. His big break was one of Hollywood's biggest pictures, Cecil B DeMille's swan song, the 1955 biblical epic, "The Ten Commandments". At the same time as working on that enormous canvas for DeMille, Bernstein was composing the first in a series of groundbreaking jazz-infused scores, "The Man with the Golden Arm". He went on to write the music for the Hollywood adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird", westerns that include The Magnificent Seven, surely one of the best-known title themes in the history of cinema, before he became the go to composer for John Wayne. His scores for action adventures include "The Great Escape" and a moving depiction of the inner life of a prisoner in "Birdman of Alcatraz". Nominated on numerous occasions, he won an Oscar for "Thoroughly Modern Millie". In the 1980s he delighted younger generations of cinema goers with scores such as "National Lampoon's Animal House", "Ghostbusters" and "Airplane!", before deciding to make a return to more serious drama. Projects with Martin Scorsese included the film of Edith Wharton's novel "The Age of Innocence" and a remake of "Cape Fear". Projects with Martin Scorsese included the film of Edith Wharton's novel "The Age of Innocence" and a remake of "Cape Fear". He also created the musical soundscape for "My Left Foot", the film about the artist Christy Brown. His last score, for which he received a final Oscar nomination, was for Todd Haynes's "Far from Heaven" in 2002. He died just two years later in 2004.

Donald Macleod marks the centenary of this gifted and versatile film composer in conversation with Peter and Emilie Bernstein, two of Elmer Bernstein's children. They offer a fascinating insider's view into the film music industry alongside a personal portrait of their father.

An invitation from John Landis, an old school friend of his son Peter's, to write the music for a comedy film he had directed led Elmer Bernstein to write music for National Lampoon's Animal House. After a decade and producing music for a string of hit comedies, it was time to change course once again.

Pictures at an Exhibition

Vivid colours and lyricism are the order of the day for this concert, given by the Philharmonia and Norwegian conductor Eivind Gullberg Jensen.

Gill Shaham is the acclaimed soloist in Prokofiev's 1935 Second Violin Concerto which outwardly seems to conform to the requirements of socialist realism, yet whose string of memorable melodies is somehow reserved and equivocal. Two orchestral showpieces bookend the programme. The first, by music's most famous chemist, comes at the rousing end of Act 2 of Borodin's opera Prince Igor, as the Polovtsians prepare to launch an invasion into Russia. Ravel's glittering, ever-popular orchestration of Mussorgsky's gallery stroll ends the concert in spectacular style.

Introduced live from the Royal Festival Hall by Martin Handley.

Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby explores traces of human history in different landscapes around the British Isles. In ‘Island’ Rose begins with the excavation of a Neolithic house on a remote causeway which leads her to explore the nature of islands, connectedness through sea travel, and margins.

Rose uses the lens of archaeology to reveal our impact on the world. In EarthWorks she helps us see ourselves within previous patterns of change. Archaeology, we hear, is about imagination, with layers of time revealing people and their stories folded into the earth.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0015v4z)
Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004)

A Master of Style

Donald Macleod talks with composer Emilie Bernstein about her father: film composer, Elmer Bernstein. They discuss his projects with film director, Martin Scorsese, and his final picture "Far from Heaven".

Born in 1922, Elmer Bernstein created the music for more than 150 films. His big break was one of Hollywood's biggest pictures, Cecil B DeMille's swan song, the 1955 biblical epic, "The Ten Commandments". At the same time as working on that enormous canvas for DeMille, Bernstein was composing the first in a series of groundbreaking jazz-infused scores, "The Man with the Golden Arm". He went on to write the music for the Hollywood adaptation of Harper Lee's classic novel "To Kill a Mockingbird", westerns that include The Magnificent Seven, surely one of the best-known title themes in the history of cinema, before he became the go to composer for John Wayne. His scores for action adventures include "The Great Escape" and a moving depiction of the inner life of a prisoner in "Birdman of Alcatraz". Nominated on numerous occasions, he won an Oscar for "Thoroughly Modern Millie". In the 1980s he delighted younger generations of cinema goers with scores such as "National Lampoon's Animal House", "Ghostbusters" and "Airplane!", before deciding to make a return to more serious drama. Projects with Martin Scorsese included the film of Edith Wharton's novel "The Age of Innocence", and a remake of "Cape Fear". Bernstein also created a remarkable portrait of the artist Christy Brown in "My Left Foot". His last score, for which he received a final Oscar nomination, was for Todd Haynes's "Far from Heaven" in 2002. He died just two years later in 2004.

Donald Macleod marks the centenary of this gifted and versatile film composer in conversation with Peter and Emilie Bernstein, two of Elmer Bernstein's children. They offer a fascinating insider's view into the film music industry alongside a personal portrait of their father.

For more than fifty years Elmer Bernstein remained a consummate master craftsman among Hollywood film composers. His daughter Emilie explains something of his working methods.

Rued Langgaard: Symphony No. 1 in B minor, BVN 32 "Klippepastoraler"

Nicola Benedetti (violin)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

Fate dealt a cruel hand to Erich Wolfgang Korngold and Rued Langgaard, two composers born in the wrong place at the wrong time. Korngold longed to write the sort of yearning, haunting melodic music that was out of fashion in early 20th-century Vienna, but when the Nazis came to power he faced more serious challenges. Exiled in Hollywood, Korngold scored success writing movie themes, plundering the most expressive and beautiful of them in 1945 for a captivating violin concerto.

Rued Langgaard was only 17 in 1911 when he finished his Symphony No. 1, a lush, romantic work in the tradition of Strauss and Bruckner that was soon taken up by the Berlin Philharmonic. Marginalised by his native Denmark, Langgaard’s highly personal, exceptionally crafted and utterly compelling music is at last getting the recognition it deserves.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (m0015v5c)
Join Ian McMillan and guests, including Kate Fox, Malika Booker, Joelle Taylor, Toby Litt, Luke Wright and Ira Lightman for our twentieth anniversary Verb celebration.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0015v5f)
EarthWorks

Moor

Archaeologist and artist Rose Ferraby explores traces of human history in different landscapes around the British Isles. In ‘Moor’ she explores environmental change on Exmoor’s peatlands. Here, ecologists and archaeologists must work together to restore the upland bogs. Understanding past environments provides insight into scales of change, and archaeology can be a valuable part of creating sustainable landscapes in the face of climate change.

Rose uses the lens of archaeology to reveal our impact on the world. In EarthWorks she helps us see ourselves within previous patterns of change. Archaeology, we hear, is about imagination, with layers of time revealing people and their stories folded into the earth. At a time of considerable uncertainty about our future, could understanding our past interactions with the environment help us respond and adapt to whatever comes next?

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0015v5h)
Sonic epiphany and After Dark highlights

Verity Sharp leads us on a tightrope across the outer edges of adventurous music. There’s newly reissued music from Gabonese harpist Papé Nziengui, traditional recordings from the Peruvian Amazon and an uncovered archival interview from the island of Tiree in Scotland. We’ll hear a piece for theremin and accordion by Ukrainian composer Victoria Poleva and music from a compilation exploring the phenomenon of epiphany through sound.

Plus more highlights from Radio 3's After Dark Festival which took place over the weekend of the spring equinox in Newcastle, including Vashti Bunyan in conversation at Sage Gateshead and a live recording from the Late Junction stage at the Star and Shadow Cinema from Nyati Mayi & The Astral Synth Transmitters.
