SAT 01:00 Composed with Emeli Sandé (m0015v5k)
Find Hope with the Sounds Of Spring

Emeli Sandé explores the music that brings her strength and inspiration, from classical to pop and beyond.

She begins the series by celebrating the hope and renewal of spring, with a selection of music that includes Julianna Barwick, Sampa The Great and Frederick Delius.

Emeli shares her love of Tchaikovsky who, more than any other composer, inspires her to find new ways of expressing emotions. Plus we hear a Max Richter composition that reminds Emeli of falling in love.

In this, and every episode, Emeli will invite listeners to join her in Composure Moment, and put everything on pause. The first Composure Moment comes from Jon Hopkins’s 2018 album Singularity.

9.30am Building A Library: Gillian Moore on Mahler’s 9th Symphony

Mahler's final completed symphony is a monumental achievement ranging in emotion from wild passion to deep despair and finally resignation. He wrote it in 1908 and 1909 but did not live to see it performed. Leonard Bernstein said of the last movement: "It is terrifying, and paralyzing, as the strands of sound disintegrate. In ceasing, we lose it all. But in letting go, we have gained everything."

Nigel Simeone reviews reissues of the Czech conductor Karel Ancerl. He was born into a wealthy Jewish family and imprisoned in Theresienstadt and then Auschwitz.

Following the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia, he emigrated to Canada, where he worked as music director of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra until his death in 1973. He is particularly known for the distinctly Czech sound he managed to get from the Czech Philharmonic and other orchestras.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m00161y1)
Kirill Gerstein

The Russian born pianist Kirill Gerstein joins presenter Tom Service, fresh off the stage after his recent Ukraine solidarity concert with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin where he featured alongside a starry line-up of soloists, to discuss his thoughts about the tragedies of the war, and his series of online seminars – Kirill Gerstein Invites – in which he’s chaired discussion throughout the pandemic with leading creative figures, including Ai Weiwei, Ivan Fisher and Steven Isserlis, about the artistic subjects which matter to them.

The American guitarist Pat Metheny shares his thoughts about collaborating with artists like the vibraphone-player Gary Burton and composer Steve Reich, his first records in the 1970s, and his most recent album – Side-Eye NYC project – which he tours to the UK in June. He tells Tom about the creative search for new sounds which has permeated the course of his career.

Music Matters talks to the creative team behind a new chamber opera, The Paradis Files, based on the life of the Austrian musician and composer who lost her sight as a child – Maria Theresia von Paradis. With contributions from the composer Errollyn Wallen, director Jenny Sealey, and librettists Selena Milla and Nicola Werenowska, we hear about their collective instinct to tell the remarkable story of Theresia’s life, and how the life of this 18th Century figure has lessons for the 21st century.

The BBC’s Secunder Kermani reports on the recent edicts stopping education for school-aged girls in Afghanistan, and describes the impact on the country’s musicians caused by the hardening attitude of the Taliban’s Ministry of Vice and Virtue towards live and recorded music.

And we speak to Sinfonia Cymru’s Chief Executive Peter Bellingham, the Chief Executive of St George's Bristol Samir Savant, and the Associate Music Director of the Paraorchestra, Lloyd Coleman, about how the cost of living crisis is affecting the musicians, venues and institutions at the heart of the UK’s musical culture.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m00161y5)
Clarinettist Berginald Rash with cadenzas, constellations, and a cradle song

Clarinettist Berginald Rash shares music that, for him, conjures up vivid images including the red clay of the Mississippi Delta and the constellations of the night sky.

He showcases several vocalists whose expertise surprises him, including Natalie Dessay’s sky-high singing, the burnished quality of Renee Fleming’s voice, and Daryl Coley’s ability to sing an immensely long phrase without taking a breath. And Berginald admires fellow clarinettist Mariam Adam’s skill at tackling virtuosic extended techniques and cadenzas.

Plus, the magical blend which Berginald finds is a characteristic of the American school of wind playing.

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

Binker and Moses in session

Kevin Le Gendre presents a session from UK jazz heavyweights, Binker and Moses, comprising of drummer Moses Boyd and saxophonist Binker Golding. Over the past few years Binker and Moses have become frontrunners of the UK jazz community, winning awards such as the 2015 MOBO Award for Best Jazz Act, a Parliamentary Jazz Award, and two Jazz FM Awards as well as numerous individual accolades. In session for J to Z they perform music from their latest album, Feeding the Machine, which blends heavy grooves, soaring melodies and freewheeling improvisation.

Also in the programme we hear from acclaimed American jazz pianist and composer Helen Sung. Initially classically trained, Helen found herself drawn to the world of jazz and has gone on to become a celebrated jazz pianist both nationally and abroad. She has worked with jazz greats such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Terri Lyne Carrington and Wynton Marsalis. Here Helen shares some of her musical inspirations, including a McCoy Tyner classic she describes as "musical ecstasy".

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m00161yk)
Ambient Melodies

Corey Mwamba presents the best in new improvised music. Laura Cannell talks about her new album, Antiphony Of the Trees, and shares her inspirations. Of the album, created during a lockdown wave, she said: “the birds were singing so loudly that I had to sing back.” Here, she reinterprets birdsong through the recorder. Mimicking and extending the tonal quality of birdsong, through a mixture of composition and improvisation, she creates a beguiling dialogue with the natural world. Elsewhere in the programme, Francesco Covarino weaves soothing lullabies for his daughter from sparse guitar, toy instruments and field recordings. Plus, oceanic meditations on consciousness from the Ukrainian violinist, Valentina Goncharova.

Today, Sarah takes us back in time to the sound of the 1st century with a replica of an ancient Greek lyre, heads to the Caribbean in the percussive sway of Gershwin’s Cuban Overture, and finds herself on an Alaskan mountain in Ola Gjeilo’s choral piece, Second Eve.

She also plays a piece for horn that provides delicate and graceful lines for the instrument, and enjoys a tender romance by composer Clemence de Grandval.

Plus, there’s some detective work in search of a catchy unknown tune…

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000tw5j)
Sister Teresa Keswick

Some 40 years ago, Teresa Keswick exchanged her career as a London lawyer for life as a nun in an enclosed and largely silent Carmelite monastery in Norfolk. She’s devoted her life to prayer and work and has become a highly skilled embroiderer. Since 2014 she’s written a regular column for The Oldie magazine.

In a special programme, originally broadcast on Easter Day 2021, Sister Teresa shares her fascinating life story and the music she loves with Michael Berkeley.

Teresa tells Michael about her initial reluctance to accept her vocation and leave her busy social life in London for a remote monastery in the Norfolk countryside and the contentment she eventually found in the strict daily routine of prayer and work.

She chooses pieces by Handel and by Beethoven that reflect her life before she became a nun, and two pieces of plainchant that play a central role in the life of her community. She describes her ongoing love of 1960s pop music and we hear a song by Simon and Garfunkel that she still plays when she has a day off from work, once a month. And she appreciates the importance of having fun – in life and in music – choosing the party scene from the opening of La traviata, which recalls a wonderful evening at the opera when she lived in London.

Teresa describes how her community celebrates Easter Day and chooses music from Bach’s Mass in B Minor; she says this music is the only thing that comes close to describing Christ’s resurrection.

Song Cycles and Concept Albums

Tom Service explores the world of the song cycle - from the tortured passions and existential angst of Beethoven and Schubert's protagonists in 19th-century Vienna, to Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole's ebullient takes on the genre with the birth of the concept album, and Kate Bush's groundbreaking experimental pop suite The Ninth Wave.

Our witness today is composer Emily Hall whose work Life Cycle, written with Toby Litt for singer Mara Carlyle, explores the theme of motherhood.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0006m0f)
Genesis

Anton Lesser and Stella Gonet with readings from Genesis and poems that cast a sideways glance at these well-known myths.

The first book of the Bible is a wellspring of potent stories that contain deep truths and powerful archetypes. The expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden shows how we learn to label things as Good or Evil in our search for knowledge; and how this comes at a terrible price. The fratricidal brothers, Cain and Abel, demonstrate the malevolent force of resentment and revenge.

Stella Gonet reads from the classic King James Version of the Bible, a translation whose cadences run through Shakespeare, Milton and all of English literature.

As well as the tales of Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph, Anton Lesser explores the untold stories of the women in Genesis: Eve thrown out of paradise and yearning to lie naked in the grass of Eden once more; a middle-aged and plump Mrs Noah looking back at her passionate youth when she was locked up in an ark full of frisky animals; and Potiphar’s wife, the prototype of a whole line of femmes fatales looking for a “rough and ready man.”

As well as containing great wisdom, these deep-rooted myths can tap into more dangerous aspects of the human psyche, if taken too literally. One of the best-known parts of Genesis is the story of Noah’s flood. The notion of a universal flood sent by God to purify a world that has supposedly fallen into sin is a common theme in many religions. It has allowed the idea that any major flood or catastrophe expresses God’s displeasure. In 2014 it was claimed by some that the UK floods were divine retribution for the British government's introduction of gay marriage. It prompted a Facebook campaign to get the song “It’s raining men” to UK number one. This iconic 80s gay anthem was written for the duo Two Tons o Fun, later known as The Weather Girls.

Also includes music by Messiaen, Dowland, Cole Porter, Berg, Stravinsky, Rossini, Bach, Martin Georgiev, Ligeti, Mozart, Richard Strauss and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m001620r)
Notes on Water

Before I can say goodbye to the man who will leave in winter…

Amanda Dalton's Notes on Water is a beautiful, visceral poetic exploration of grief. A river full of wreckage with nothing that will make a raft. Written following the death of her partner in 2019, Notes on Water takes us lyrically through the universal human experience of loss. Everything is sodden, cold, sunken. Homes are flooded, broken. The village is not a haven. Nothing is solid. Hotels fall into the sea, everything slips and changes, including time.

Sound design is by Laurence Nelson, one of the young sound designers who have come though BBC's Sound First - a development scheme for new sound designers.

As we move through images of the seabed, the centre of the earth and the blackness of raging water, these powerful words and sound seep under the skin sending a depth charge through our deepest emotions. Memories of a sister punctuate the narrative, with the detail of a pink balloon the only colour in the colour drained landscape and her dancing the only light.

Voices: Amanda Dalton and Colette Bryce
Producer: Susan Roberts


SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m0010x6w)
A Trip to My Grave

Sophie Coulombeau, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinker, writer and lecturer in English literature at the University of York, reflects on the contemporary reluctance to face death. Accompanied by funeral director Christine Dudzinska and Clive Dawson, cemetery volunteer, she visits the plot she has purchased in the atmospheric and historic cemetery in York that will be her final resting place - an unusual act of forward planning in a modern age in which most people prefer not to think too much about their demise. By contrast, the 18th-century writer and patron of the arts Hester Thrale Piozzi was frank, even playful, in imagining her own end. Two hundred years after her death, what can this writer - and her culture - teach us today about how to reconcile ourselves to mortality?

SUN 23:00 The Art of Accompaniment (m001620y)
The Art of Invention

You couldn’t make it up. But in fact - for swathes of music before the 18th century, and a surprising amount after - the accompanist, well, does.

Keval Shah explores the art of riffing on the musical equations and suggestions in figured bass - and how composers throughout history have expected the accompanist to be simultaneous editor, director and Executive Producer… as well as musical supporter. Music by Purcell, Errollyn Wallen, Corelli, Schubert, Stockhausen and Snow Patrol.

---

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 (m0016210)
Keelan Carew

Keelan Carew finds the unlikely connections between five pieces throughout musical history. Tonight, what could big beats from Little Simz, a quirky Waltz by Britten and a Charlie Brown Christmas possibly have in common? Join Keelan to find out.

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 (b071cl19)
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Seven Last Words

Donald Macleod explores Haydn's unique instrumental oratorio, "The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross", as well as his final opera, "Orpheus and Euridice".

Haydn's "Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross" is one of the most remarkable and original musical works of the entire 18th century. Conceived as an instrumental oratorio for Cadiz in Spain, it vividly depicts the suffering of Christ in sound alone – a truly radical idea for the time. This week, Donald Macleod explores this little-known and beautiful work, as well as Haydn's own "last words" – his last compositions in a variety of genres: last opera, last symphony, last piano sonata, and many more, covering the period from 1786 to his death in 1809.

The week begins with the story of Haydn's unique "Seven Last Words", before we join the composer at his very last meeting with Mozart, just a year before the younger man died. Donald Macleod explores the story of Haydn's first year in England, 1790, as well as introducing his final opera – Orpheus and Euridice, or "The Philosopher's Soul".

MON 22:45 The Essay (m001645f)
Talking about Silence

An Invitation to Silence

'Talking about Silence' is a personal pilgrimage around an enjoyable paradox: that you can understand silence better if you talk about it. In his new series of essays, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores the many varieties of spiritual silence in human life and beyond, and what he's learned of its meanings in his six-decade career as a historian of religion.

Framed by his memories of filming at some of the most significant Christian sites in the world for his land-mark TV series on the history of Christianity, Diarmaid explores how even though Christianity has been a religion of the word, it cannot escape silence, because silence is wrapped up in the lived experiences of Christians through time. He presents silence in all its different forms: as the truest expression of the divine, as well as a vehicle of the greatest evil, over the course of Christianity’s two thousand years of existence.

In his first essay, Diarmaid MacCulloch introduces us to the theme of silence and how he has returned to the subject at key points during his career. Looking back on his life, Diarmaid sees it was a path laid down from the beginning, which sprang from the experience of a happy but isolated country parsonage childhood: alert already to history and its delights, but also alert as a gay teenager to the way in which things are not said, and what the meaning of that silence is. The hero of Diarmaid’s favourite story is the little boy who told the crowd that the emperor had no clothes on. That, says Diarmaid, is what his whole career writing and teaching history has been devoted to: showing up the Emperors with no clothes and ending the silences that need ending.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b071fd1r)
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

A Final Symphony

Donald Macleod explores Haydn's last symphony, No.104, and continues his journey through Haydn's unique instrumental oratorio, "Seven Last Words".

Haydn's "The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross" is one of the most remarkable and original musical works of the entire 18th century. Conceived as an instrumental oratorio for Cadiz in Spain, it vividly depicts the suffering of Christ in sound alone – a truly radical idea for the time. This week, Donald Macleod explores this little-known and beautiful work, as well as Haydn's own "last words" – his last compositions in a variety of genres: last opera, last symphony, last piano sonata, and many more, covering the period from 1786 to his death in 1809.

Today Donald Macleod explores the story of Haydn's final symphony, No.104, composed in London in 1795, and introduces a real rarity – one of only two fragments of what would have been his only English oratorio, with words composed by his friend (and later convicted criminal) the Earl of Abingdon. He also continues his exploration of Haydn's unique and remarkable "Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross".

TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m001622v)
Mostly Mozart (1/4)

PIanist Llŷr Williams devises a programme for the Perth Concert Hall audience that connects Mozart and Haydn with a little French twist. Ravel's Menuet was written for the anniversary of Haydn's death in 1809. Debussy also contributed to this initiative along with several other prominent french composers of the day and created a hommage in waltz form, based on the translation of Haydn's name into corresponding note pitches as Ravel had done. Poulenc's short miniatures entitled Novelette are written in a similar vein and were published as a set of three short works dedicated to close friends. The concert by Llŷr Williams culminates in a Mozart double-bill of his C minor Fantasia and Piano Sonata also in C minor which were, unusually, published together and are often performed as a pair. The Sonata is dedicated to his pupil Therese von Trattner, who was also the wife of his landlord, and was probably intended for domestic performance or teaching purposes. It translates effortlessly into a modern concert platform nevertheless.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m001623c)
Toward the Unknown Region - Vaughan Williams 150

From Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Presented by Tom McKinney

In the third of this collaborative series of concerts in which the BBC Philharmonic and the Halle Orchestra explore the symphonies of Ralph Vaughan Williams in his 150th anniversary year, conductor John Wilson guides the BBC Philharmonic through the frozen wastes in the direction of the South Pole and back to London in the early years of the 20th century.

Fashioned from music for the film "Scott of the Antarctic", released in 1948 and charting the doomed 1912 expedition, Vaughan Williams's Sinfonia Antartica immerses us in some of his most descriptive and chilling music. We hear the unstoppable force of nature in the movement of the ice floes, the howling of the incessant wind and blizzards on the glacier. We experience hope and patriotism as well as fear and despair, but are also allowed to enjoy the antics of the South Pole's resident penguins!

Closer to home, although born in the Gloucestershire countryside, Vaughan Williams considered himself a Londoner, and his portrait of the city during this period is evocative and powerful, framed by its depiction of the Westminster Chimes ringing out over the Thames. The lost atmosphere of those years is caught in the sound of the streets; the music of an accordion and a lavender seller clearly portray a sense of time and place in this rich symphonic tapestry.

Doctor Who collaborators Mark Gatiss and Stephen Moffat, academics Una McCormack and Claire Langhamer and Matthew Kneale join Matthew Sweet to celebrate Nigel Kneale's groundbreaking 1953 BBC TV sci-fi serial The Quatermass Experiment, which spawned two late 1950s sequels and an ITV final run in autumn 1979. This year marks the centenary of Nigel Kneale's birth and sees a BFI season of films and events across April.

Picturehouse Crouch End in London will be hosting a day-long event on 23 April featuring expert panellists and members of cast and crew looking at Kneale’s film and TV work and his influence and legacy.
Nigel Kneale's adaptation of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four starring Peter Cushing is released by the BFI on Blu ray DVD in April. Quatermass 1 and 2 will also be available on BFI Player.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m001645l)
Talking about Silence

The Wild Track

'Talking about Silence' is a personal pilgrimage around an enjoyable paradox: that you can understand silence better if you talk about it. In his new series of essays, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores the many varieties of spiritual silence in human life and beyond, and what he's learned of its meanings in his six-decade career as a historian of religion.

In this essay, Diarmaid MacCulloch introduces us to the concept of the 'Wild Track' of the TV or radio interview, whose rationale in recording silence is that every silence is different and has its own personality. Diarmaid’s life-long research into the history of Christianity has helped him listen to the 'wild-track' of Christian silences, and how Christians have changed their minds on the subject of silence over time. In fact, the first Christians had little respect for silence: they experienced their God in noise. But in seeking to understand their disasters, they gradually saw how they might find their God in profound silence. Jesus’ life, as portrayed by the Gospel writers, is punctuated by meaningful silence. So, says Diarmaid, silence is built into the foundation of Christian history, and it has taken a multitude of wild-track byways over two thousand years.

A Farewell to the Keyboard

Exploring Haydn's final works. Today, Donald Macleod explores Haydn's final keyboard sonata and last major orchestral work, his much-loved Trumpet Concerto.

Haydn's "The Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross" is one of the most remarkable and original musical works of the entire 18th century. Conceived as an instrumental oratorio for Cadiz in Spain, it vividly depicts the suffering of Christ in sound alone – a truly radical idea for the time.

In today's episode, Donald Macleod tells the story of how Haydn came to make a choral arrangement of his "Seven Last Words", a decade after the pioneering instrumental version. We also explore the background to Haydn's last keyboard sonata, No.62, and the story of his much-loved Trumpet Concerto.

Mostly Mozart (2/4)

Adam Walker performs Mozart Piano Sonata No 17 in his own arrangement for piano and flute duo. Schubert himself wrote the brilliant and virtuosic Trockne Blumen variations for flute & piano based on his song from Die Schone Mullerin. It was written at the request of his friend and flautist Ferdinand Pogner and is in the form of a theme and variation for maximum opportunity to demontrate the flautist's virtuosic prowess no doubt. Adam Walker and James Baillieu complete their recital with a showpiece from another virtuoso flautist of the 19th century, Albert Doppler. Doppler was born in Lviv in Ukraine and together with his flute-playing brother dazzled European audiences as a duo. Multi-talented, Franz Doppler wrote seven operas and fifteen ballets on top of countless pieces for flute and he had a distinguished career as Chief Conductor at the Vienna Court Opera at the same time as holding the position of Professor of Flute at the Vienna Conservatoire.

Ships and History

What nationalities served in the British navy of the 18th century and what difference did peacetime and wartime conditions have on the make-up of crews? How does visiting a landlocked village which was once a thriving Gloucestershire port change our view of history? What did enslaved people think about their rescue by anti-slavery rescue ships? These are the questions Rana Mitter will be asking three writers and historians: Sarah Caputo, Tom Nancollas and New Generation Thinker Jake Subryan Richards. Plus the artist Hew Locke describes his new commission for the entrance hall of Tate Britain and the artwork now on show at Tate Liverpool which is built from 45 votive boats suspended from the ceiling.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m001645j)
Talking about Silence

In a Monastery Garden

'Talking about Silence' is a personal pilgrimage around an enjoyable paradox: that you can understand silence better if you talk about it. In his new series of essays, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores the many varieties of spiritual silence in human life and beyond, and what he's learned of its meanings in his six-decade career as an historian of religion.

Today Diarmaid takes us inside the spiritual homes of Christian silence, the monasteries. But he says, although they seem a natural part of its two millennia of history, monasteries are actually an early import into Christianity from Syria, which made sense for Christianity. The monastic life of contemplation and silence went on to triumph for a thousand years throughout the Church. The triumph was so complete, that monks developed a language of silence, using all ten fingers of the hand to convey meaning in everyday life. And yet, says Diarmaid, as in all triumphs, there was a reckoning.

Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

The Seasons

Donald Macleod explores Haydn's final oratorio, The Seasons, featuring a complete performance of "Autumn". He also continues his journey through Haydn's unique "Seven Last Words".

Haydn's "Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross" is one of the most remarkable and original musical works of the entire 18th century. Conceived as an instrumental oratorio for Cadiz in Spain, it vividly depicts the suffering of Christ in sound alone – a truly radical idea for the time. This week, Donald Macleod explores this little-known and beautiful work, as well as Haydn's own "last words" – his last compositions in a variety of genres: last opera, last symphony, last piano sonata, and many more, covering the period from 1786 to his death in 1809.

Haydn's final oratorio, "The Seasons", composed in 1801, has always been in the shadow of its older brother, "The Creation", completed three years prior. It's tough being perennially compared to a work that's not just regarded as Haydn's masterpiece, but possibly the greatest sacred work of the Classical Era. Yet "The Seasons" is a masterpiece in its own right. Donald Macleod takes up its story, with a complete performance of "Autumn".

Mostly Mozart (3/4)

Award-winning young Italian violinist Francesca Dego brings an all-Mozart programme of sonatas to the Perth Concert Hall featuring three contrasting sonatas. The short and simple Sonatas in G and A were written while visiting Mannheim, in south-west Germany, a highly influential centre for innovation and the development of the orchestra. The Sonata K454 written six years later in Vienna is a more substantial proposition. According to a story told by Constanze, his wife, Mozart did not leave himself time to write down the piano part of K.454 before its performance in Vienna and so performed with a blank sheet of paper on the stand - much to the admiration of Emperor Joseph II - according to the story.

Talking about Silence

Reformation: Losing Silence

'Talking about Silence' is a personal pilgrimage around an enjoyable paradox: that you can understand silence better if you talk about it. In his new series of essays, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores the many varieties of spiritual silence in human life and beyond, and what he's learned of its meanings in his six-decade career as a historian of religion.

Today Diarmaid MacCulloch takes us inside Martin Luther’s home in Wittenberg, Germany, to explore how Luther’s message rewrote the lived experience of Christian silence from the moment he burst onto the scene with his radical, reforming message. The monasteries, as factories of silent prayer, were symbolic of the majesty of the medieval western Church, and so they became the chief casualties of the Protestant Reformation. It took the most radical spirits of the Reformation to realise that something precious was in danger of being lost: the Quakers, who have often found that silent gatherings are the best settings in which to worship. Modern Protestants can still be very noisy, says Diarmaid, and he recalls visiting a revivalist megachurch in South Korea that was the loudest of them all.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b071g52c)
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

The Final Curtain

Donald Macleod explores Haydn's final, incomplete string quartet, and introduces the story of the composer's final months, with a last excerpt from his unique "Seven Last Words".

Haydn's "Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross" is one of the most remarkable and original musical works of the entire 18th century. Conceived as an instrumental oratorio for Cadiz in Spain, it vividly depicts the suffering of Christ in sound alone – a truly radical idea for the time. This week, Donald Macleod explores this little-known and beautiful work, as well as Haydn's own "last words" – his last compositions in a variety of genres: last opera, last symphony, last piano sonata, and many more, covering the period from 1786 to his death in 1809.

In this week's final episode, Donald Macleod explores Haydn's last fully active year of composition, 1803, including a performance of his final, incomplete string quartet and extracts from his last mass, the "Harmoniemesse". The week ends with the story of Haydn's own last days set against a final extract from his extraordinary instrumental oratorio for Cadiz, the Seven Last Words of Our Saviour on the Cross.

Easter at King's

Ian Skelly presents a live Good Friday concert from King's College, Cambridge. Director of Music Daniel Hyde conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra in Haydn's Symphony No 26, known as Lamentatione and written for Easter week 1768, one of his earliest minor key symphonies. In January 1783 Mozart wrote to his father saying he had promised to complete a setting of the Mass. It was performed later that year in Salzburg with his new wife Constanze as one of the soprano soloists, but in fact remains unfinished, suggesting that Mozart perhaps borrowed bits from existing works for that performance.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m00167pg)
Talking about Silence

Good Silence, Bad Silence

'Talking about Silence' is a personal pilgrimage around an enjoyable paradox: that you can understand silence better if you talk about it. In his new series of essays, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores the many varieties of spiritual silence in human life and beyond, and what he's learned of its meanings in his six-decade career as a historian of religion.

Framed by his memories of filming at some of the most significant Christian sites in the world for his land-mark TV series on the history of Christianity, Diarmaid explores how even though Christianity has been a religion of the word, it cannot escape silence, because silence is wrapped up in the lived experiences of Christians through time. He presents silence in all its different forms: as the truest expression of the divine, as well as a vehicle of the greatest evil, over the course of Christianity’s two thousand years of existence.

In his final essay, Diarmaid MacCulloch explores how Christianity contains silences that need ending and the role the historian takes in doing so.


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m00162c7)
Park Jiha and Roy Claire Potter

Jennifer Lucy Allan brings 80s post-punk from Cheri Knight, performance art meets high goth from Vindicatrix alongside New Noveta, guitar diversions from Japan’s Sato Koji as well as caustic electronics merged with mussed lo-fi vocals from Bristol's Max Kelan.

Elsewhere in the show, after meeting during a Late Junction collaboration session in 2020, Korean multi-instrumentalist and composer Park Jiha and experimental writer and performer Roy Claire Potter talk about their ongoing work together from Glasgow’s Counterflows festival.

Produced by Rachel Byrne

A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.
