SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m001691b)
Martin Fröst, SongPath, Beckett and Russia

Tom Service is joined by Russian music and history expert, Marina Frolova-Walker and BBC journalist, Olga Ivshina to discuss the effects the war in Ukraine is having on Russian music and culture.

Clarinettist and conductor, Martin Fröst talks to Tom about reshaping the classical musical arena through multi-media spectacular as he prepares to launch his newest project, Xodus.

Singers, Jess Dandy and Joanna Harries take Tom on a musical walk through a woodland in south east London ahead of their "SongPath" at RSPB St Aidan’s nature reserve near Leeds this week. They immerse themselves in the sounds of birds, rain and song as they talk about the benefits connections through nature and music have on mental health.

And Tom visits the Coronet Theatre in London where the theatre company, Gare St Lazare Ireland begins rehearsals for a production of Samuel Beckett’s novel, "How It Is." One of Beckett’s most experimental and beautiful works, "How it is" is an extraordinary exploration of language and this production explores the beauty, sound, rhythm and meaning of the words while the strains of the Irish Gamelan Orchestra enhance the dystopian atmosphere of Beckett’s writing. Tom is joined by director, Judy Hegarty Lovett; composer and sound designer, Mel Mercier, and performers, Stephen Dillane, and Conor Lovett.

She also musically marks Easter Sunday with a reflective track for wind instruments subtitled ‘Maundy Thursday at Midnight’, and Ivan Moody’s ‘Words of the Angel’ sung by Trio Mediaeval, which pictures Mary standing outside Christ's empty tomb. And Percy Grainger and JS Bach combine forces in Blithe Bells.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m001691s)
Tim Birkhead

For Easter Day, Private Passions celebrates Spring and the music of birdsong with one of the world’s leading experts on birds, Professor Tim Birkhead.

An award-winning scientist, author and university lecturer, Tim Birkhead is Emeritus Professor of Zoology at the University of Sheffield, and the author of many books that communicate his life-long passion, including “What it’s like to be a bird” and most recently “Birds and Us”, a 12,000-year history of our relationship with birds, from cave art to conservation.

His choices include music that Mozart taught to a starling, and the old Catalan “Song of the Birds”, played by Pablo Casals. There will also be the music of birdsong itself, from the Dawn Chorus to the song of the bullfinch, which Tim Birkhead regards as the ultimate songbird. The programme includes the famous 1924 recording of Beatrice Harrison playing her cello to a nightingale with the nightingale answering back. Or so the story goes…

Tim Birkhead explores the true story of the recording and considers the enduring impact of Beatrice’s duet.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m001692k)
April

Is it the cruellest month or the time when sweet showers fall? There's an ambiguity about April with its changeable weather and promise of rebirth that's reflected in this week's programme. Readers Tayla Kovacevic-Ebong and Emma Fielding guide us into April's more beguiling realms with poems by Anne Stevenson, Laurie Lee, Ann Sexton and Caleb Femi that are full of flowers, possibility and the warmth of sun on skin, but then TS Eliot, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Philip Larkin turn up to reveal that darker, melancholic side - the feeling of loss made starker by burgeoning new life. That same tension and contradiction comes through in the music which includes works by Stravinsky, Ella Fitzgerald and Count Basie, Cécile Chaminade, Prince (yes, sometimes it DOES snow in April), Manuel Maria Ponce, TesseracT and Astor Piazzolla.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m001692r)
A Society of Recordists

For over half a century, the Wildlife Sound Recording Society has been active in encouraging amateur recordists to develop their skills and increase their understanding of the natural world, in the UK and around the globe. In this impressionistic sonic portrait, we join society members on a group field-recording trip to Caerlaverock Wetland Centre in Dumfriesshire, to share in reflections and reminiscences about encounters with nature and the art of audio recording.

The sound of thousands of barnacle geese in flight; the wingbeat of a whooper swan; the ambience of a lake at night - our recordists have different sounds they wish to capture during the trip, and a variety of techniques, equipment rigs and field craft know-how at their disposal. Some want the ultimate sense of a location in stunning stereo, while others want to document specific species with as little other "pollution" as possible. What makes a good recording? And what drives them to keep heading out at dawn and dusk alone with their microphones?

Featured Field Recordings:

David M. - A flock takes to the air at Caerlaverock
Richard Youell - Overhead Whooper Swan
Johannes van den Burg - Black-backed Jackal calling at the Waterhole
Anna Sulley - Bird song: Wren, Curlew, Jackdaw
Robert Malpas - Inner Farne: Terns with People
Johannes van der Burg - Life In The River Eye
Derek McGinn - Snow Bunting
Richard Youell - Geese over Caerlaverock

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m000sqxn)
The Balcony

New Generation Thinker Dr Islam Issa has a strong cultural attachment to the balcony. In his native Egypt, the place where architectural historians believe the balcony was first developed, the balcony is a pivotal part of family homes, a place that blurs the line between private and public living. He recalls it being a place that linked communities and allowed an external life without the risks of life in the open streets.

When he saw Italians singing from their balconies during the early weeks of the Covid pandemic he was reminded that they have many other roles in political, cultural and literary settings. With the help of Egyptian film-maker and photographer Alia Aidel and Shakespeare scholar Reverend Paul Edmondson, Islam explores the use of balconies from Romeo and Juliet to Buckingham Palace and reflects on his own upbringing in which he learned to look up and in to the family balcony and yet as he matured, realised he thought of it principally as a place to look out and down.

SUN 23:00 The Art of Accompaniment (m0016930)
Virtuoso in the Shadows

“Just an accompanist” is an epithet that stings. In fact, several centuries of composers have written “accompanying” parts that are the technical equal of the soloist - yet garner an iota of the praise. Not to mention having to “be an orchestra” at the drop of a hat. All turning a marriage of equals into a pressure-cooker of resentment…

Music by Strauss, Weber, Poulenc, Berg and Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

---

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 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0016b71)
One Hit Wonders

Pachelbel and Humperdinck

Donald Macleod explores some of the greatest “one-hit wonders” in classical music.

Donald Macleod and guest Sarah Willis explore the lives and music of Johann Pachelbel and Engelbert Humperdinck, both composers who are primarily famous for a single work.

Classical music is littered with composers who are famous for just a single piece of music. In a special week of Composer of the Week programmes, Donald Macleod is joined by Berlin Philharmonic horn player Sarah Willis to explore ten of these composers and examine episodes from their lives, alongside their compositions – both their popular hits and some of their less familiar music. They also try to isolate why certain works have captured the popular imagination of audiences around the world.

In Monday’s programme, Donald and Sarah reveal their first two composers. Johann Pachelbel is famed primarily for a short canon. Engelbert Humperdinck composed one of the most popular operas in the world today, but is remembered for very little else!

MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0016b73)
Viktoria Mullova and Alasdair Beatson

Viktoria Mullova and Alasdair Beatson perform two sonatas they recorded last year to great critical acclaim, earning 5* reviews as well as BBC Music Magazine's 'Chamber Choice' of the month. Beethoven's Seventh Sonata for fortepiano and violin is one of the grandest in the violinist’s repertory, packed with drama, passion and a deep sense of unsettled urgency. Following the Seventh's stormy conclusion comes the opening, lyrical melody of the 'Spring' sonata, immediately suggestive of the freshness and beauty of the season that has earned the sonata its nickname.

Live from Wigmore Hall
Presented by Andrew McGregor

MON 19:00 In Tune Mixtape (m0008jw6)
Half an hour of the finest classical music

Half an hour of uninterrupted music featuring an eclectic mix of styles and moods, opening with a hefty slab of liturgical pomp from Bruckner in his anthem "Ecce sacerdos", written to welcome a bishop into his cathedral. Amy Beach's languid "Dreaming" leads into a world of dance, ranging from Medieval stomps, via the Elizabethan court to the rhapsodic Spanish whirling of the fairground as depicted by Ravel. Malcolm Arnold's whimsical "Little Suite" calms things down, and a Handelian concerto steals some well known tunes from his own more famous seasonal oratorio, until it's time to settle down in front of the fire for a romantic evening with the peerless crooning of Al Bowlly.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0016b7h)
Words for War

Oksana Maksymchuk - Hear Their Words

A week of Essays from Ukrainian poets who have responded to war in their country since 2014. Many of Ukraine’s poets had to grapple with language (Russian or Ukrainian) and make sense of the hybrid war since 2014 that brought bloody division as Russian backed separatists and the Ukrainian military fought over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of East Ukraine.

Poet Oksana Maksymchuk co-edited Words for War, a collection of new poems from Ukraine. Now she, like many of the poets in the collection, has been forced to flee. From a studio in Budapest she introduces writers such as Serhiy Zhadan - now active in relief efforts in Kharkiv, Halyna Kruk - who has remained in Lviv and soldier poet Borys Humenyuk who wrote -

'Poetry saw people die. Poetry put spent bullet shells in its ears. Poetry would rather go blind than see corpses every day. Poetry went places where there isn't a place for poetry. Poetry witnessed it all. Poetry witnessed it all.' .

Hear their words. You may be changed by them.

One Hit Wonders

Dukas and Allegri

Donald Macleod explores two more of the greatest “one-hit wonders” in classical music.

Composers Paul Dukas and Gregorio Allegri are both remembered for just a single work. Together with guest Sarah Willis, Donald Macleod explores the reasons for this phenomenon.

Classical music is littered with composers who are famous for just a single piece of music. In a special week of Composer of the Week programmes, Donald Macleod is joined by Berlin Philharmonic horn player Sarah Willis to explore ten of these composers and examine episodes from their lives, alongside their compositions – both their popular hits and some of their less familiar music. They also try to isolate why certain works have captured the popular imagination of audiences around the world.

Paul Dukas and Gregorio Allegri are composers with very little in common, separated by nearly three centuries. However they are both largely remembered for just one of their works. In Tuesday’s programme, Donald and Sarah explore their lives and the stories behind their single hits.

The concert begins in a former chapel, the Tabernacle, which is now home of the Machynlleth Festival, and where Camille Thomas and Julius Drake performed the dreamlike romantic Fantasiestücke by Schumann. This is followed by two of Liszt’s often virtuosic Transcendental Studies, with the pianist Llyr Williams performing at the Gower Festival.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0016964)
Semyon Bychkov conducts the Czech Philharmonic

In March, to end their European tour, the Czech Philharmonic and their Chief Conductor Semyon Bychkov came to the Barbican Hall for this eagerly awaited concert – the first international visiting orchestra to perform there since the pandemic.

In a world where one orchestra often sounds very much like another, the Czech Philharmonic has retained an immediately recognisable distinctiveness, especially, as here, in two peaks of the Czech repertoire, each so characteristic of its composer.

Dvořák's unique joyousness, sensuous happiness and nostalgia combine in his lyrical Eighth Symphony, by turns rustic, wistful and exuberant.

The church's all-consuming obsession (as he saw it) with death and suffering, was not for Janáček and his Glagolitic Mass, an ecstatic, visionary, pantheistic celebration, including fanfares, a wild organ solo and sudden outbursts, is like nothing else. 'Luminous, totally crazy, insane, full of joy of life,' is how Semyon Bychkov describes it.

Introduced by Ian Skelly.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m001696d)
Words for War

We Come from Odesa - Boris and Ludmila Khersonsky

A week of Essays from Ukrainian poets who have responded to war in their country since 2014. Many of Ukraine’s poets had to grapple with language (Russian or Ukrainian) and make sense of the hybrid war since 2014 that brought bloody division as Russian backed separatists and the Ukrainian military fought over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of East Ukraine. Now total war is upon them and many have been forced to flee. Here are their words.

Boris and Ludmila Khersonsky became refugees from Odesa at the end of March. Both leading poets, Boris began writing in the days of Samizdat and the ossified Soviet state and has never stilled his voice against the malevolent state. For his wife Ludmila, the hybrid war from 2014 plunged many Ukrainian poets into a state of innocence, a second childhood, in which they confronted the need of speaking a new language. Boris was one of his country's foremost poets expressing himself in Russian. Since 2014 he has learned to write in Ukrainian with poems such as Explosions are the New Normal. 'We have to write. You have to speak, to give witness.'

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a selection of music recorded at three festivals in Wales in 2019, including in this programme, the Gower and Machynlleth festivals. The concert starts with music performed by the celebrated Welsh pianist Llŷr Williams at the Gower Festival, where he delighted the audience with Poulenc’s Les Soirées de Nazelles. Llŷr Williams introduced the music by saying that he felt the music was a set of eight depictions of the composer’s friends, sitting round the piano at Nazelles. This is followed by a classic of the cello repertoire, the Cello Sonata No 1 by Brahms. It was performed by Camille Thomas at the Machynlleth Festival, and is a particular favourite of the pianist Julius Drake.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0016bbv)
Radio 3's New Generation Artists at Snape Maltings

Tonight's recordings were made during a weekend of concerts given in the Britten Studio at Snape Maltings in March by some of Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme, the well-established programme for exceptional musicians at the beginning of national and international careers.

The Van Kuijk Quartet open the concert with Dvorak's Ninth String Quartet; it was written at a tragic time in the composer's life when he had recently suffered the loss of two of his children, and this sadness is palpable right from the opening melody that drives the movement.

One of the many riches to come from the Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme is new collaborations between the musicians, and the second half of the concert is a fine example of this. The Van Kuijk Quartet join pianist Tom Borrow and the violinist of the Mithras Trio, Ionel Manciu, for a performance of the rarely played work by Chausson, his thrilling Concert for Violin, Piano and String Quartet Op. 21.

The concert concludes with another work by Chausson, and another collaboration: mezzo-soprano Ema Nikolovska and pianist Kunal Lahiry join the Van Kuijk Quartet for Chausson's very last work, his beautiful Chanson perpétuelle, Op. 37.

Introduced by Ian Skelly.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0016bbz)
Words for War

Lyuba Yakimchuk

A week of Essays from Ukrainian poets who have responded to war in their country since 2014.

Lyuba Yakimchuk is a poet, screenwriter, playwright. She grew up in eastern Ukraine in the 1990s and witnessed the arrival of hybrid war there as Russian backed separatists began an ongoing bloody conflict with the Ukrainian army. She left for the security of Kyiv but now total war and invasion has uprooted her and her family to Vienna. Recently she wrote 'Before the war I was a good girl, the kind who would never say bad words, who was never rude to anyone, even in the most conflicted situations. “Good” in the patriarchal sense of the word, a girl one might imagine growing up in a small town near Luhansk. Yet when the war between Russia and Ukraine began, quite literally in our backyard, back in 2014, I started using filthy language even in my poems, because that very filth was as efficient as a gunshot – it had the capacity to “kill”.

She recently performed her work at the Grammies. Here she relates her own recent experience of the war along with poems such as 'He Says Everything Will Be Fine' and 'Crow, Wheels'... 'When the city was destroyed, they started fighting over the cemetery.'

One Hit Wonders

Pergolesi and Mascagni

Donald Macleod explores some of the greatest “one-hit wonders” in classical music.

Donald Macleod and Sarah Willis explore the life and music of Giovanni Pergolesi and Pietro Mascagni – two more of classical music’s greatest “one-hit wonders”.

Classical music is littered with composers who are famous for just a single piece of music. In a special week of Composer of the Week programmes, Donald Macleod is joined by Berlin Philharmonic horn player Sarah Willis to explore ten of these composers and examine episodes from their lives, alongside their compositions – both their popular hits and some of their less familiar music. They also try to isolate why certain works have captured the popular imagination of audiences around the world.

In Thursday’s programme, Donald and Sarah explore the life and music of Giovanni Pergolesi, whose huge posthumous fame has now been reduced to just a sole work, and a composer at the other end of the scale, who even in his own lifetime, despite his best efforts, was primarily famous for just a single piece – Pietro Mascagni.

One Hit Wonders

Orff and Fučík

Donald Macleod explores more of the great “one-hit wonders” of classical music.

Exploring the lives and music of classical music’s “one-hit wonders” – today Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana, and Julius Fučík’s Entry of the Gladiators come under the microscope.

Classical music is littered with composers who are famous for just a single piece of music. In a special week of Composer of the Week programmes, Donald Macleod is joined by Berlin Philharmonic horn player Sarah Willis to explore ten of these composers and examine episodes from their lives, alongside their compositions – both their popular hits and some of their less familiar music. They also try to isolate why certain works have captured the popular imagination of audiences around the world.

O Fortuna from Carmina Burana has become one of the most recognisable pieces of music in the world, used in TV and film, and still massively popular in the concert hall. In the final programme of the week, Donald and Sarah explore the life and music of its composer Carl Orff, alongside the life and music of Julius Fučík, who is famous today primarily for just one of his 400-odd marches.

Beethoven's last piano concerto meets Shostakovich's final symphony

Beethoven's 'Emperor' Concerto begins with epic majesty and grandeur and ends with a joyfully rambunctious finale; in between, time seems suspended in serene, hymn-like stillness. Tonight's soloist is internationally renowned Beatrice Rana ‘one of the most insightful and prodigiously gifted artists of the new generation’, according to the New York Times.

Gianandrea Noseda's acclaimed Shostakovich symphony cycle with the LSO has arrived at the elusive No. 15. Completed in 1970, Shostakovich's final symphony disconcerts as raspberry-blowing perkiness rubs shoulders with bleak despair, and overt musical quotations are subverted by mysterious musical ciphers. And even the meagre reassurance of Shostakovich's trademark sardonic humour seems to be undermined by the final dehumanised clockwork of the symphony's close.

Recorded at the Barbican Hall in February and introduced by Martin Handley.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m00169kx)
Words for War

Vasyl Makhno - My Personal History of War

Vasyl Makhno was born in 1964 in the town of Chortkiv in the Ternopil region of Ukraine. He has written about war from a distance since the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and now he lives in New York. “It seemed to me that I had written my final poem about the war. I wrote a few about Maidan and the events in Donbas and Luhansk. Poetry, of course, should react, and so I reacted. But on February 24 I experienced real shock and pain from the tragic news about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. I couldn’t call it anything other than ‘War’.”

Producer: Mark Burman


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m00169kz)
Flora Purim's mixtape

Verity Sharp shares a mixtape from Grammy-nominated Brazilian jazz vocalist Flora Purim. Often referred to as ‘The Queen of Brazilian Jazz’, she has been a key figure in the Latin and American jazz scenes for the last seven decades. Early on in her career, she combined jazz with radical protest songs that challenged the Brazilian government, before leaving for New York in 1967. There she was able to spend time with her idols, including Thelonious Monk and Horace Silver, and over the course of her career has collaborated with a long list of esteemed musicians, from Dizzy Gillespie and Hermeto Pascoal to Gil Evans and Chick Corea. The longest collaboration of her career has been the one with her husband, the Brazilian jazz percussionist Airto Moreira.

This month saw the release of her first studio album in 15 years, which revisits some of her past collaborations as well as new compositions, including alongside her daughter Diana Purim. Her mixtape for Late Junction pays homage to her jazz heroes, from American trumpeter Miles Davis to Polish vocalist Urszula Dudziak, as well as pieces from South African singer Miriam Makeba and Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia.

Elsewhere in the show there’s new music from Haitian-American multi-instrumentalist Leyla McCalla that draws on 20th century Haitian radio archives, as well as a collection of cassette recordings of Khmer music from Cambodia recorded between the 1960s and the 1990s. Plus a new release from Wessex electronic duo Reigns, inspired the story of an artist who created a beautifully illustrated deck of tarot cards only to completely destroy it in 1970 once it predicted her death.

Produced by Katie Callin.
