9.30am Building a Library: Nigel Simeone on Janacek’s Jenufa

Completed in 1902 Jenufa was Janacek's first great masterpiece. It is a tragic tale of small-minded village attitudes, infanticide and redemption. But as with all Janacek, the music is totally life-enhancing without being in the least sentimental. At the heart of the story is the strong but complicated relationship between Jenufa and her mother: they share some of the most heart-breaking music in the opera.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0017dp5)
Ethel Smyth's The Wreckers

Kate Molleson visits Glyndebourne Festival Opera to hear about its new production of Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers – the first major staging of this tale of a hostile coastal community in many, many years, heard, as the composer intended, with its original French libretto.

Briefly: A Delicious Life is a new novel by the writer Nell Stevens, a ghost story based around Fryderyk Chopin and his partner – the French novelist – George Sand, set in a monastery retreat in Mallorca. Kate meets the author to discover more about this tale of love, creativity and sexuality.

The folk singer Angeline Morrison, writer and broadcaster Kevin Le Gendre and folk singer and academic Fay Hield all join Kate to discuss the overlooked black history in English folk music.

And Tom Service meets conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, recovering from major surgery, still working and in the UK recently to continue his long association with London Symphony Orchestra.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0017dp9)
Cellist Julian Lloyd Webber finds immediacy and rapture in music

Music educator and former cellist Julian Lloyd Webber introduces a wide-ranging selection of pieces, from Frederick Delius’s concisely constructed Song before Sunrise, to the loudest live performance he ever heard - a track by the band Cream.

He also discovers conductor Evgeny Svetlanov playing the piano in a little-known chorus by Rachmaninov, and wonders whether the cellist Pierre Fournier produced such a recognisable sound because of the shape of his fingers.

Plus Julian remembers how when he and his brother Andrew were flummoxed by a particular chord in a Beach Boys song, their father William Lloyd Webber came to the rescue.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0017dpk)
Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor from the Met

Soprano Nadine Sierra, always a favourite at the Met, takes on one of the repertory’s most formidable roles, the haunted heroine of Lucia di Lammermoor. Tenor Javier Camarena adds to the bel canto fireworks as Lucia’s beloved, Edgardo, with baritone Artur Ruciński as her overbearing brother, Enrico, and bass Matthew Rose as her tutor, Raimondo. Riccardo Frizza conducts.

Presented by Debra Lew Harder, in conversation with Ira Siff.

Lucia: Nadine Sierra, soprano
Edgardo: Javier Camarena, tenor
Enrico: Artur Ruciński, baritone
Raimondo: Christian Van Horn, bass
Chorus and Orchestra of the Metropolitan Opera
Riccardo Frizza, conductor

Donizetti's tragic masterpiece tells of the innocent Lucia who is forced into a marriage by her brother Enrico to save the family fortunes, although she is desperately in love with another man. Enrico's ruthlessness and deceit devastate his fragile sister Lucia, with tragic consequences.

SAT 22:00 New Music Show (m0017dpm)
Traveller Song

Tom Service with the latest new music in performance. This week, a live recording of Apartment House from a concert given at London's Wigmore Hall in March including Jurg Frey's Second String Quartet and a rare performance of German composer Michael von Biel's String Quartet with Accompaniment, music which like that of Helmut Lachenmann achieves a musique concrete sound world but with acoustic instruments. Also tonight, from the 2019 Warsaw Autumn festival, a performance of Cassandra Miller's Traveller Song, an exploration of the composer's "singing impulses" while singing along to an Alan Lomax recording of a Sicilian cart driver. The musicians of Plus Minus Ensemble play alongside overlaid recordings of Miller's voice in a piece she describes having a "quasi-shamanistic keening". There's new electronic music from Isambard Khroustaliov, and continuing our series of New Music Biennial recordings from the last ten years we hear Arlene Sierra's Urban Birds for piano, disklavier and electronics from 2014.



SUNDAY 22 MAY 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0017dpp)
Energetic Matter

Corey Mwamba presents new music exploring energetic states inspired by Afrofuturism, dharmic principles and quantum physics.

Leeds-based DJ and sound artist Nik Nak sent in a track from her debut album, Sankofa taking inspiration from Afrofuturism and comic book heroes. Entitled Doubt, through an initially foreboding, pressure cooker atmosphere, she creates a buzzing sound world that ‘whispers, sounding like swarms of locusts’. But, it's an immersive experience that shifts from the negativity of doubt to a state of peace and enlightenment.

In Barcelona, sound artist Reiko Yamada and physicist Maciej Lewenstein offer a glitching, multi-dimensional ride building on their interdisciplinary research and interest in quantum physics. Elsewhere in the programme, we head to Tokyo for a live performance from improvisers Tatsuya Yoshida and Risa Takeda. It’s a voracious, drum and synth fuelled feat drawing from dharmic symbols to evoke the principles of irresistible force and indestructibility.

Sarah Walker with an invigorating musical mix

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning.

Today, Sarah shares a pair of dances by Bach which remind her of clockwork toys, a glorious symphonic finale by Mendelssohn, and a tone poem by William Alwyn inspired by the top of a Surrey hill.

There is also a piece Mozart probably wrote for himself to perform with his sister Nannerl, a brand-new recording of Ravel’s most famous piece, and a thrilling overture by Zdeněk Fibich full of drama and peril.

Plus, Sarah takes a trip down memory lane to her first music festival with a song which has stayed with her ever since…

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0017dpy)
Kat Arney

The science writer and broadcaster Dr Kat Arney shares with Michael Berkeley her passion for the harp and her revelatory new research into the causes of cancer.

Gone are the days when cancer could not be mentioned but was “the Big C”. It is just as well, since about half of us will develop cancer during our lifetime. And as the treatments and drugs improve all the time, so does our knowledge of what causes it. Kat Arney’s latest, award-winning, book, Rebel Cell: "Cancer, Evolution and the Science of Life", explains the revelatory new breakthroughs happening in labs around the world.

After a PhD in Genetics at Cambridge University, Kat Arney worked for ten years as Science Communications Manager at Cancer Research UK. And then she left that job to go freelance - writing books and newspaper articles about science, broadcasting and podcasting including a recent Radio 4 series, Ingenious, about how individual genes shape our lives.

But as well as science Kat Arney has another passion, for music, and particularly the harp, which she has played since she was a teenager both as a classical instrument and in bands. She chooses music by the harpist Ruth Wall; Arnold Bax’s Harp Quintet; and we hear Kat herself playing with the Ethiopian musician Mulatu Astatke and the Heliocentrics.

And she lets Michael into the secret of how to fit a harp into the back of an Austin Metro.

Formed in 2008 and based in Zurich, the ensemble, whose members come from four different countries, has maintained a high reputation in the classical and modern repertoires and won particular praise for its CD of the Schoenberg quartets, in which the composer’s ‘sometimes taxing language seem so utterly natural,’ as one critic noted.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m0017dq0)
John Blanke's England

John Blanke was a trumpet player of African descent employed by the English Kings Henry VII and Henry VIII in the early 1500s. He's the only black person of the Tudor period for whom we have both a name and a picture – in the Westminster Tournament Roll of 1511, currently on display at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool – but he was by no means the only person of African heritage living in England at that time. Lucie Skeaping uncovers the life and world of John Blanke and the music he would have known, in conversation with expert on diversity in Tudor England, Dr Onyeka Nubia.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000xzn3)
The Tudors

From Shakespeare to Hilary Mantel - the Tudors is a period rich in literature, with a king who is said to have composed Greensleeves for his future Queen Anne Boleyn. Today's Words and Music is inspired by the Tudor dynasty who ruled England from Henry VII’s reign in 1485 until the death of Elizabeth I in 1603. Theirs was an era of turbulence, from the Wars of the Roses, to the seismic break with Rome under Henry VIII, and the bloody era of protestant executions under Mary I. There is poetry by the key players in the Tudor drama: Thomas Wyatt (who was accused of adultery with Anne Boleyn), Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I herself. And we feature extracts from one of the most compelling modern-day takes on the Tudors: Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall. Musically, we’ll hear from the star of this week’s series of Essays, William Byrd; and Thomas Tallis, who walked a dangerous line as a Catholic composer in Elizabeth I's Protestant court, and we'll also hear Tudor inspired music by Donizetti and Benjamin Britten. Our readers are Anton Lesser and Josette Simon.

Producer: Georgia Mann

You can hear three Free Thinking Discussions about the Tudors being broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on Tues 24th, Weds 25th and Thurs 25th May and available to download as Arts & Ideas podcasts.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000j969)
Electronic India

In 2018 Paul Purgas found a box of dusty reel to reel tapes in the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. They featured a collection of intriguing electronic compositions made by a series of unknown composers dated from 1969 to 1973. In this documentary Paul sets out to find the musicians he heard on the tapes and to discover more about this little-known chapter of Indian music history.

The National Institute of Design (NID) was a design school in Western India which during the 1960s became a creative hub, where leading international artists came to teach, share ideas and socialise. Louis Kahn, David Tudor, Iannis Xenakis and John Cage all passed through the college. The NID also housed an electronic music studio containing an early Moog synthesizer. Paul’s discovery raises some intriguing questions: how did such a rare piece of technology come to crash land in Ahmedabad in the late 1960s, what else was recorded there, and why have we not heard of it before?

Paul Purgas is a British electronic musician. Born to Indian parents and raised in the UK, he has created a form of electronic music that owes as much to Xenakis as it does Detroit Techno - but in all his years of researching his craft, he has always looked West, from Stockhausen in Cologne, to Laurie Spiegel at Bell Labs to tell the story of electronic music. Until Now.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0017dq7)
The Hummingbird

Sandro Veronesi's award-winning, bestselling novel, The Hummingbird, adapted as a play for BBC Radio 3.

An impressionistic, dreamlike telescoping of a life into 60 minutes, this adaptation by John Retallack weaves together voices, soundscape, music, and the authentic sounds and textures of Italy.

The Hummingbird won the Premio Strega, Italy’s major literary award, and is a No.1 international bestseller. Marco Carrera, is 'the hummingbird' who stands still as he navigates the challenges of life – confronting the death of his sister; taking care of his elderly parents; raising his granddaughter when her mother can no longer be there for her; and coming to terms with his love for Luisa. It is a romance of a different kind, and the story portrays a hero who can give more easily than he can take it. A sportsman and gambler, Marco is above all a truly gentle man - right up to the last hour of his life when he brings together those he loves to bid farewell.

The Hummingbird is produced by The Story of Books for BBC Radio 3.

Cast:

The Author ..... Paul Ansdell
Marco ..... Simon Lenagan
Luisa ..... Caroline Faber
Dr Carradori ..... Dan Krikler
Adele ..... Katie Walton
Miraijin ..... Darcy Dixon

Sound design by Jon Nicholls

The 'Hummingbird' poem is by Raymond Carver.

The Hummingbird was translated from the Italian by Elena Pala. It was adapted and directed by John Retallack, and produced by Emma Balch for The Story of Books.

Patrick Watson with Jules Buckley and the BBC Symphony Orchestra

Musical omnivore Patrick Watson has given us some of the most beautiful songs of recent years. He has garnered a dedicated following of deep-listening fans, all of them attracted by music that mines deep subtlety from its expansive tendencies. Watson’s musical outlook ranges from rock to classical chamber music via cabaret and film soundtracks. His gift for melody and narrative and his personal vocal delivery have secured his status as one of the most distinctive songwriters of his generation. With its deep regard for texture, silence and emotion, Watson’s music has always glanced towards the huge universe of the symphony orchestra. This concert, recorded at the Barbican Hall in February, was conducted by the BBC SO's Creative Artist in Association Jules Buckley - who also wrote many of the arrangements. Watson fans and newcomers alike will hear his songs magnified to reveal all their artful depth.

Across the World

In the final episode of this three-part series, Anoushka Shankar explores the influence that Indian classical music has had across the world, from Philip Glass, Terry Riley and The Beatles to the music of Bollywood and jazz, and artists working between the western and Indian classical traditions. She also explores how the folk music of India itself left an indelible mark on Hindustani and Carnatic music.

Steeped in the traditions of the music, and a sitarist herself, Anoushka Shankar is our guide to the stories, theories and recordings of Indian classical music and what makes it so rich.

Vaughan Williams Today

1948-1951 Nostalgia for Spring

Donald Macleod explores the late 1940s and early 50s as Adeline’s arthritis becomes increasingly worse, and Vaughan Williams - now in his mid-70s - begins to feel his age.

This month, Donald Macleod takes a new look at one of Britain’s best loved composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams, as part of Radio 3's 'Vaughan Williams Today' season - marking the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Over the course of four weeks and twenty programmes, Donald will be delving into Vaughan Williams's life story and work in intriguing detail, and he’ll also be talking to some of the leading authorities on Vaughan Williams to share and explore fresh perspectives on a variety of overlooked and less well known aspects of his life and work, forming a comprehensive and absorbing portrait of a composer whose body of work has had such an enduring impact on British cultural life.

In this, the final week of Composer of the Week’s landmark series, Donald will focus primarily on the years 1948-1958, the final decade of Vaughan Williams’s life. The composer was, by this point recognised as the Grand Old Man of English music, and for a younger generation of British composers had begun to represent the establishment. He was also beginning to feel his age but was still managing to surprise critics with some of his new works, and he showed little sign of slowing down, continuing to lead a busy life, and launching into new endeavours too: foreign travels which included a major tour of the US, a major house move, and, following the death of Adeline, a second marriage. Donald will also be speaking to Vaughan Williams experts Ceri Owen and Alain Frogley about Adeline Fisher and Ursula Wood, Vaughan Williams’s two wives, and about Vaughan Williams’s legacy, and the changing reception to his music since his death.

In Monday’s programme, Donald explores the late 40s and early 50s as Adeline’s arthritis becomes increasingly worse, and Vaughan Williams – now in his mid-70s - begins to suffer from a series of aches and pains, and sees his first real concert hall failure.

Adrian Edmondson - Signs of Life (Series 2)

Creativity

In this second series of essays, Adrian Edmondson finds five ways to consider moments of personal and career highs, lows and the bits in-between.

1. Creativity
In which Adrian Edmondson looks back from his early triumph at primary school as the Angel Gabriel to what went wrong with his hugely successful television sitcom and live show, Bottom, and his relationship with Rik Mayall:

“Over thirteen years we create three series, one feature film and five two-hour live shows, it’s very satisfying... until - it isn’t anymore. One day I look in the larder and find I’m slightly bored of this diet."

Adrian Edmondson studied drama at Manchester University where he met his comedy partner Rik Mayall. He and Rik were part of the first wave of Alternative Comedy where their glorious pursuit of laughter and anarchic performances changed the comedic landscape forever. He starred as Vyvyan in The Young Ones, the series that blasted its way onto our screens tearing into our preconceptions of what television comedy could be. It was followed by Bottom which ran for three series on BBC television, had a spin-off film (Guest Hotel Paradiso), and became a live show.

Adrian's career has since taken him into 'straight' acting as well, at the RSC, BBC TV’s War and Peace and EastEnders. He is a writer of books for adults and children; and co-wrote the television series Teenage Kicks. He has had an award-winning music career with his band The Bad Shepherds which fused punk and folk. And he is an award-winning music video producer.

Vaughan Williams Today

Ralph, Adeline and Ursula, with Ceri Owen

Donald Macleod and Ceri Owen offer a fresh view of Vaughan Williams’s two wives – Adeline Fisher and Ursula Wood – their own creative lives, and their role in the composer’s success.

This month, Donald Macleod takes a new look at one of Britain’s best loved composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams, as part of Radio 3's 'Vaughan Williams Today' season - marking the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Over the course of four weeks and twenty programmes, Donald will be delving into Vaughan Williams's life story and work in intriguing detail, and he’ll also be talking to some of the leading authorities on Vaughan Williams to share and explore fresh perspectives on a variety of overlooked and less well known aspects of his life and work, forming a comprehensive and absorbing portrait of a composer whose body of work has had such an enduring impact on British cultural life.

In this, the final week of Composer of the Week’s landmark series, Donald will focus primarily on the years 1948-1958, the final decade of Vaughan Williams’s life. The composer was, by this point recognised as the Grand Old Man of English music, and for a younger generation of British composers had begun to represent the establishment. He was also beginning to feel his age but was still managing to surprise critics with some of his new works, and he showed little sign of slowing down, continuing to lead a busy life, and launching into new endeavours too: foreign travels which included a major tour of the US, a major house move, and, following the death of Adeline, a second marriage. Donald will also be speaking to Vaughan Williams experts Ceri Owen and Alain Frogley about Adeline Fisher and Ursula Wood, Vaughan Williams’s two wives, and about Vaughan Williams’s legacy, and the changing reception to his music since his death.

In Tuesday’s programme, Donald speaks to Dr Ceri Owen about Vaughan Williams’s two wives – Adeline Fisher and Ursula Wood – offering a fresh perspective of both their own creative lives and their roles in the composer’s success.

The continuing appeal of Tudor history

Historical novelist Philippa Gregory, historians Susan Doran and Nandini Das, and literary scholar Adam Roberts recorded with Matthew Sweet at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry as part of the BBC Contains Strong Language festival. Their conversation begins a Tudor week on Free Thinking - looking at the enduring appeal of Tudor history and the role that historical fiction plays in shaping our view of history.

Kenilworth Castle and Garden are run by English Heritage https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/kenilworth-castle/

Walter Scott (15 August 1771 – 21 September 1832) wrote many historical novels including Kenilworth - his account of Queen Elizabeth, the Earl of Leicester and the murder of his wife Amy Robsart which was published 13 January 1821.

Philippa Gregory's novels include The Other Boleyn Girl, The King's Curse and her current Fairmile Series. She is a fellow of the Universities of Sussex and Cardiff and an honorary research fellow at Birkbeck University of London.

Adam Roberts teaches at Royal Holloway, University of London and Nandini Das teaches at the University of Oxford. She is a BBC/ARHC New Generation Thinker.

Adrian Edmondson - Signs of Life (Series 2)

Money

In this second series of essays Adrian Edmondson finds five ways to consider moments of personal and career highs, lows and the bits in-between.

2. Money:
In which we learn how the school boy Adrian Edmondson tricked the bank, ran away from school and almost got expelled - all for the love of a bass guitar:

“It’s a brutal way to learn about economics – but possibly more enlightening than doing PPE at Oxford.”

Adrian Edmondson studied drama at Manchester University where he met his comedy partner Rik Mayall.. He and Rik were part of the first wave of Alternative Comedy where their glorious pursuit of laughter and anarchic performances changed the comedic landscape forever. He starred as Vyvyan in The Young Ones, the series that blasted its way onto our screens tearing into our preconceptions of what television comedy could be. It was followed by Bottom which ran for three series on BBC television, had a spin-off film (Guest Hotel Paradiso), and became a live show.

Adrian's career has since taken him into 'straight' acting as well, at the RSC, BBC TV’s War and Peace and EastEnders. He is a writer of books for adults and children; and co-wrote the television series Teenage Kicks. He has had an award-winning music career with his band The Bad Shepherds which fused punk and folk.

The composer was, by this point recognised as the Grand Old Man of English music, and for a younger generation of British composers had begun to represent the establishment.

Donald will also be speaking to Vaughan Williams experts Ceri Owen and Alain Frogley about Adeline Fisher and Ursula Wood, Vaughan Williams’s two wives, and about Vaughan Williams’ legacy, and the changing reception to his music since his death.

Today, Donald explores how after his wife Adeline’s death, Vaughan Williams threw himself back into life: meeting Churchill, contributing music for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and travelling to the US to see the Grand Canyon. He also celebrates his eightieth birthday with a whole host of parties, and moves back to the hubbub of London as a newly-wed, with his second wife, Ursula.

The Tudor Mind

Royal Trumpeter John Blanke's image is on show alongside portraits of the Tudor monarchy in an exhibition opening at the Walker Gallery in Liverpool. Blanke is the only black Tudor for whom we have an identifiable picture, painted on horseback in the royal retinue. New Generation Thinker Christina Faraday has been looking at these and other Tudor artworks. She joins Helen Hackett, author of The Elizabethan Mind and music historian Eleanor Chan for a discussion chaired by New Generation Thinker John Gallagher. And what aspects of the Tudor mind do we see at work in the next generation writing of John Donne? Biographer Katherine Rundell has the answers.

The Tudors: Passion, Power and Politics runs at Liverpool's Walker Gallery 21 May 2022—29 Aug 2022.

John Gallagher is Associate Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Leeds and the author of Learning Languages in Early Modern England.

Christina Faraday is a Research Fellow at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where she is working on a project exploring Elizabethan art and music.

Professor Helen Hackett teaches at University College London and her book The Elizabethan Mind is out now.

Katherine Rundell's biography of John Donne is called Super-Infinite: The Transformations of John Donne.

Eleanor Chan is a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker who studies the links between music and art history. She's based at the University of Manchester.

You can find a host of programmes about Vaughan Williams on Radio 3 and BBC Sounds broadcasting this May. His Tudor Portraits are being performed by the Britten Sinfonia and Norwich Philharmonic Chorus at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival on Sunday 29 MAY, 7.30PM at St Andrews and Blackfriars Hall.

Adrian Edmondson - Signs of Life (Series 2)

Nuts

In this second series of essays Adrian Edmondson finds five ways to consider moments of personal and career highs, lows and the bits in-between.

3. Nuts:
In which Adrian Edmondson reflects on his own mental health and how reading about the ancient philosophers changed his life:

“He nods, and says he’s noticed that I am very much a ‘glass half empty’ kind of person. He is very much ‘glass half full.’ … He says suicidal thoughts are not normal. This is a shock, and it’s when I start to get an inkling that I might be nuts.”

Adrian Edmondson studied drama at Manchester University where he met his comedy partner Rik Mayall.. He and Rik were part of the first wave of Alternative Comedy where their glorious pursuit of laughter and anarchic performances changed the comedic landscape forever. He starred as Vyvyan in The Young Ones, the series that blasted its way onto our screens tearing into our preconceptions of what television comedy could be. It was followed by Bottom which ran for three series on BBC television, had a spin-off film (Guest Hotel Paradiso), and became a live show.

Adrian's career has since taken him into 'straight' acting as well, at the RSC, BBC TV’s War and Peace and EastEnders. He is a writer of books for adults and children; and co-wrote the television series Teenage Kicks. He has had an award-winning music career with his band The Bad Shepherds which fused punk and folk. And he is an award-winning music video producer.

Philosophy for Life: And other Dangerous Situations is written by Jules Evans.

Vaughan Williams Today

1955-58 : The End

Donald Macleod explores the final, happy years of Vaughan Williams’s life, combining foreign travel with a busy social life in London and completing his final two symphonies.

This month, Donald Macleod takes a new look at one of Britain’s best loved composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams, as part of Radio 3's 'Vaughan Williams Today' season - marking the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth. Over the course of four weeks and twenty programmes, Donald will be delving into Vaughan Williams' life story and work in intriguing detail, and he’ll also be talking to some of the leading authorities on Vaughan Williams to share and explore fresh perspectives on a variety of overlooked and less well known aspects of his life and work, forming a comprehensive and absorbing portrait of a composer whose body of work has had such an enduring impact on British cultural life.

In this, the final week of Composer of the Week’s landmark series, Donald will focus primarily on the years 1948-1958, the final decade of Vaughan Williams’s life. The composer was, by this point recognised as the Grand Old Man of English music, and for a younger generation of British composers had begun to represent the establishment. He was also beginning to feel his age but was still managing to surprise critics with some of his new works, and he showed little sign of slowing down, continuing to lead a busy life, and launching into new endeavours too: foreign travels which included a major tour of the US, a major house move, and, following the death of Adeline, a second marriage. Donald will also be speaking to Vaughan Williams experts Ceri Owen and Alain Frogley about Adeline Fisher and Ursula Wood, Vaughan Williams’s two wives, and about Vaughan Williams’s legacy, and the changing reception to his music since his death.

Today, Donald explores the final, happy years of the composer’s life, which saw him broaden his geographical horizons with a series of foreign travels, receive a standing ovation at the Royal Festival Hall for his eighty-fifth birthday, and complete his Eighth and Ninth Symphonies. He also has an interesting encounter with a gypsy traveller Juanita Berlin.

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain are celebrating the theme of ‘Open Up’ - the idea being to open up new perspectives, form new relationships, and disperse preconceptions about music and musicians. Tonight’s theme is ‘Running Riot’, and Carlos Miguel Prieto conducts a programme that ends with Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, the piece which came out of nowhere to catapult music into the 20th century, not adhering to any tradition, and exploring the cycles of nature that in the end connect everyone. The Rite takes up the second part of this concert, and before it comes music by two innovative composers working right now, Dinuk Wijeratne and Gabriela Ortiz, who are exploring difference and diversity, transcending barriers and finding human connection through music. Sandeep Das will be the tabla soloist in Wijeratne’s tabla concerto, and he says it’s ‘simply the best Western Classical piece written for my instrument.’

Concert recorded on 23rd April at the Royal Festival Hall, London.

Adrian Edmondson - Signs of Life (Series 2)

Fandom

In this second series of essays Adrian Edmondson finds five ways to consider moments of personal and career highs, lows and the bits in-between.

4. Fandom:
In which Adrian Edmondson ponders the nature of both being a fan and being the object of others' recognition:

“It isn’t quite the Beatles at Paddington Station, I’m talking around a dozen people, mostly girls, running towards me. But they run pell-mell. And I have to tell you, it’s not a nice feeling. It makes you quite panicky. I imagine it’s how the fox feels. My instinct, like his, is to run.”

Adrian Edmondson studied drama at Manchester University where he met his comedy partner Rik Mayall.. He and Rik were part of the first wave of Alternative Comedy where their glorious pursuit of laughter and anarchic performances changed the comedic landscape forever. He starred as Vyvyan in The Young Ones, the series that blasted its way onto our screens tearing into our preconceptions of what television comedy could be. It was followed by Bottom which ran for three series on BBC television, had a spin off film (Guest Hotel Paradiso), and became a live show.

Adrian's career has since taken him into 'straight' acting as well, at the RSC, BBC TV’s War and Peace and EastEnders. He is a writer of books for adults and children; and co-wrote the television series Teenage Kicks. He has had an award-winning music career with his band The Bad Shepherds which fused punk and folk.

Stephen Hough plays Rachmaninov with the BBC SO

The BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Alpesh Chauhan, join pianist Stephen Hough in Rachmaninov, plus a Richard Baker premiere and Bruckner’s transcendental Ninth Symphony.

Live from the Barbican London
Presented by Martin Handley

Richard Baker: The Price of Curiosity (BBC Commission: world premiere)
Sergey Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

8.05pm
Interval

8.25pm
Anton Bruckner: Symphony No 9

Stephen Hough (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Alpesh Chauhan (conductor)

In his most famous work, Sergei Rachmaninov pits piano against orchestra in a witty, bolshie and wickedly entertaining dual. Who wins? Find out as Stephen Hough takes on this remarkable piece.

Anton Bruckner’s last, unfinished symphony was intended as his great spiritual autobiography. Even from the three movements the composer did finish, we experience intense power, cataclysmic terror and exquisite tenderness. Fate decreed that the symphony would end with music apparently slow enough to stop time itself – a great, transfiguring Adagio that forms Bruckner’s epitaph.

To begin Alpesh Chauhan’s Barbican debut, we premiere Richard Baker’s orchestral reimagining of a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s 1956 thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (m0017dtg)
The Queen's Library, Windsor Castle

Presented by Ian McMillan, The Verb, Radio 3’s showcase for the best in new poetry, writing and performance, hosts a special programme recorded in The Queen’s Library at Windsor Castle. The Poet Laureate Simon Armitage will perform a new work for the occasion, and we’ll explore rare poetic gems from the collection – annotated editions gifted to the library by his Laureate predecessors Wordsworth and Tennyson. Ian will discuss the collection with the Royal Librarian, Stella Panayotova

We are also joined by Grace Nichols, recipient of the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 2021 and the Young People's Laureate for London, Theresa Lola, linking verse past and present in an intimate setting with an astonishing history.

Produced by Kevin Core and Jessica Treen


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0017dtj)
Adrian Edmondson - Signs of Life (Series 2)

The Jacobite Rebellion

In this second series of essays Adrian Edmondson finds five ways to consider moments of personal and career highs, lows and the bits in-between.

5. The Jacobite Rebellion:
In which Adrian Edmondson compares the fugitive Bonnie Prince Charlie’s flight across the country with his and Rik’s progress on tour around the kingdom and some of the battles they encountered:

“….everything comes to an end. The Jacobite rebellion ends in defeat at the Battle of Culloden. Our Culloden in 2003 is the Watford Colosseum. We’ve done five tours, more than 500 gigs. We put up a better fight than the Jacobites, we aren’t exactly overrun, but like Charlie I’ve really had enough.”

Adrian Edmondson studied drama at Manchester University where he met his comedy partner Rik Mayall.. He and Rik were part of the first wave of Alternative Comedy where their glorious pursuit of laughter and anarchic performances changed the comedic landscape forever. He starred as Vyvyan in The Young Ones, the series that blasted its way onto our screens tearing into our preconceptions of what television comedy could be. It was followed by Bottom which ran for three series on BBC television, had a spin off film (Guest Hotel Paradiso), and became a live show.

Adrian's career has since taken him into 'straight' acting as well, at the RSC, BBC TV’s War and Peace and EastEnders. He is a writer of books for adults and children; and co-wrote the television series Teenage Kicks. He has had an award-winning music career with his band The Bad Shepherds which fused punk and folk. And he is an award-winning music video producer.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0017dtl)
Sarah Angliss and Stick in the Wheel in session

Verity Sharp shares our latest collaboration session, recorded live in the studio, between east London duo Stick in the Wheel and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Angliss. Together, the three musicians respond to the work of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams as part of BBC Radio 3’s celebrations marking 150 years since his birth. Drawing from the composer’s A London Symphony as a starting point, their collaboration explores a joint interest in urban folklore and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s connection to the capital where the three artists all live and work.

Sarah Angliss’s music explores the intersections between her lifelong interests in European folksong and cybernetics. A classically trained composer, Sarah has made a name for herself performing on the UK folk scene. She is particularly renowned for her skills on recorder, theremin and keyboard as well as her own DIY robotic instruments. This session also provides a rare opportunity for an outing for her portative organ.

Stick in the Wheel explore the parallels between the past and present using a mix of traditional and electronic instruments, fronted by vocalist Nicola Kearey alongside guitarist Ian Carter. Their approach to folk music is firmly rooted in the urban, drawing from their East London working-class heritage. They sing and perform both their own compositions and traditional songs, with their latest album Tonebeds for Poetry exploring the sounds of the city and the struggle of its communities.

Elsewhere in the show, a response to recent flooding in Brisbane from Australian producer Timothy Fairless and music from the Sahel recorded on a mobile phone.
