9.30am Building A Library: Jonathan Cross on Stravinsky’s Symphony In Three Movements

The first movement of Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements began life as a piano concerto. And in a failed bid to join the ranks of well-paid movie composers in Hollywood where Stravinsky now lived, the second movement, with its prominent harp part, was originally conceived to accompany a vision of the Virgin Mary in the 1943 film Song of Bernadette. Stravinsky's genius was to add a third movement, related to the first, and so create a cohesive, satisfying and brilliant whole despite the disparate origins of its first two parts. He completed the Symphony in 1945 and, despite a deeply felt sense of exile, loss and nostalgia, it's perhaps some of the most American-sounding of Stravinsky's music, capped by a resplendent final chord, straight out of Hollywood.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0017m0x)
Accordionist Ksenija Sidorova with powerful melodies and musical embraces

Classical accordionist Ksenija Sidorova shares a tranquil choral piece to accompany us through hard times, and the Signum Saxophone Quartet play what Ksenija thinks could be the best version of a track from Star Wars.

She also finds some perfect musical pairings - from the unusual combination of mandolin and piano in a track by Omer Avital, to the transportive sonorities of accordion combined with electronic music, and a conductor whose connection with his orchestra shines through a symphony by Tchaikovsky.

Plus, a harp piece by Lavinia Meijer which is the perfect lullaby…

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

SAT 17:00 J to Z (m0017m13)
Robert Glasper's inspirations, plus Zoe Rahman in session

Jumoké Fashola presents an interview with innovative pianist and producer Robert Glasper. Over the past decade, Glasper’s blend of jazz, hip hop and R&B has become one of the most influential sounds in jazz, spawning legions of imitators. Moving freely between genres he has worked with jazz heavyweights such as Herbie Hancock and Esperanza Spalding, and rappers including Common and Kendrick Lamar, featuring on Kendrick’s landmark album ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’. His own ‘Black Radio’ album series has featured Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and many others. Here he shares a selection of tracks that have shaped his sound and reflects on the shared lineage of jazz and hip hop.

Also in the programme, creative UK pianist Zoe Rahman performs live in the J to Z studio. Originally a classically trained musician, Rahman went on to study at Berklee College of Music where she worked under the tutelage of Joanne Brackeen. With English-Irish and Bengali heritage, she plays some brand new music that reflects her roots and her classical beginnings. She’s joined by Alec Dankworth on bass and Gene Calderazzo (Pharoah Sanders) on drums.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0017ml3)
Harrison Birtwistle - Gawain

Gawain, the epic opera by Sir Harrison Birtwistle, who died last month. Sir John Tomlinson is the Green Knight and Leigh Melrose, Gawain. The BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Singers are conducted by Martyn Brabbins. Presented by Tom Service.

Bishop Baldwin ..... William Towers (countertenor)
Agravain ..... Ivan Ludlow (baritone)
Ywain ..... Robert Anthony Gardiner (tenor)
BBC Singers
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Martyn Brabbins conductor
Andrew Griffiths conductor

Birtwistle's iconic opera of the 1990s dramatizes the mysterious Arthurian legend of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight with sombre, often shattering, power. He and librettist David Harsent cast the story in two cyclical acts, emphasising the ritual aspects of the epic saga, and lending it hieratic force. The part of the Green Knight was modelled on the range of Wotan, and is pitted against the baritone Gawain. But is it Morgan Le Fay who is really controlling events? A rare opportunity to hear this striking modern classic, from an orchestra, chorus and conductor steeped in Birtwistle's music. And Sir John Tomlinson reprises the role he created, and he alone has sung.


SAT 22:00 New Music Show (m0017m17)
Kate Molleson with specially recorded performances including Amber Priestly's For Jocelyn Bell Burnell - a BBC commission which was premiered by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Ilan Volkov at the recent Tectonics Festival in Glasgow.

Paul Hillier’s Theatre of Voices perform David Lang's The Little Match Girl Passion, which sets Hans Christian Andersen’s story, The Little Match Girl, in the format of Bach’s Saint Matthew Passion. There are new releases by the Norwegian improvising trio, Mokus and the Berlin-based guitarist, Julia Reidy. This week's look back at a decade of New Music Biennial pieces is Jason Yarde's Skip, Dash, Flow from 2012. And, as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee this week, Gerald Barry talks about the power of hymns, anthems and mass singing as well as his settings of Rule Britannia and God save the Queen.



SUNDAY 29 MAY 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0017m19)
Meditative States

Guitarist Tashi Dorji joined forces with drummer Susie Ibarra back in 2019 for an exhibition exploring the life and teachings of 8th century Indian Buddhist master, Padmasambhava. Believed to have brought Buddhism to Tibet, his philosophies included beliefs around self-transformation, impermanence, and the nonlinear nature of time. Here, the duo conjure shapeshifting transmutations that stretch and evolve with shades of dark and light.

New York-based pianist Lucian Ban, known for his work blending Transylvanian folk music and European classical music with improvisation, is back with his first unaccompanied solo album. Recorded in his native Transylvania in a grand hall on a Bösendorfer piano, it’s an offering of tonal quietude, washing over in gentle waves, and a snapshot into his contention that “improvisation is just composition in real time”.

Elsewhere, we dive into the subtle ferocity of cellist Tomeka Reid, guitarist Joe Morris, cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum and exquisite vocal work from Kyoko Kitamura. A foursome playing with texture, pitch, and daring presence.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0017lqp)
Jarvis Cocker

In a wide-ranging and engaging interview, musician Jarvis Cocker tells Michael Berkeley about the role classical music plays in his life and relationships.

Fortunately for the world of music Jarvis Cocker abandoned his early ambition to be an astronaut and instead, at the age of 14, had the idea of forming a band called Pulp during an Economics lesson at school in Sheffield. Some 15 years later, Pulp was one of the most successful bands in the world, with a string of witty, emotionally raw, and musically inventive hits rooted in the details of real life.

Since then, he has become a much-loved radio presenter with the long-running "Jarvis Cocker’s Sunday Service" on BBC Six Music, and "Wireless Nights" on Radio 4. Amongst numerous other projects he has formed a new band, JARV IS…, and he has just published a memoir of his childhood and the early years of Pulp called Good Pop, Bad Pop.

Jarvis describes how, during a long period of convalescence after an accident, he transformed the way he wrote songs, realizing that the details of everyday life around him in Sheffield provided a goldmine of material. He tells Michael how he coped with fame when it eventually arrived in his thirties, and how he has never conquered his stage fright.

Jarvis chooses music by Schubert, Max Richter, Rachmaninoff, Eric Satie and Delius, all guaranteed to give him the ‘tingle’ factor. He talks about the power of particular vinyl records to bring back memories of his teenage years in Sheffield and of his son as he was growing up in Paris. And he talks movingly about the role Richter’s music played in his relationship with his dying father who had been absent for most of Jarvis’s life.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000hvnd)
Talking in music

Tom Service explores talking in music - from Gilbert and Sullivan's patter songs to high-art ‘sprechgesang’ by Schoenberg, from Mozart's recitative to the rap of present-day LA. Anyway, who's to say what is talking and what is singing? Archive recordings of WB Yeats reveal him intoning his poetry melodically, while Ken Nordine devised what he called ‘Word Jazz’.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000bdjd)
Secrets and Discoveries

Bettrys Jones and Kingsley Ben-Adir with readings on this week's theme of Secrets and Discoveries - one which suggests not only the realms of science and investigation, but also the inner world of the human heart. The choices run from a Polari version of the Genesis story through an oratorio inspired by the life and work of code-breaker Alan Turing, to the fossils which inspired a poem by Thomas Hardy and the meditations on life and grief in Maggie Nelson's Bluets to Colin Matthews’ completion of Holst’s The Planets with the newly discovered Pluto.

Producer: Caitlin Benedict

We begin with the first secret, and the first discovery: in the Garden of Eden. Genesis, and the story of the Tree of Knowledge is presented in Polari, the coded patois that was utilised in the underground gay culture of 20th century Britain. Meditations on the Apple, the Tree, and the Fall of Man from Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman to Haydn show the sheer range of interpretations that story has bred.

The dramatic potential of secret love is a recurring theme, from American poet Lola Ridge’s obscure Secrets to Barbara Strozzi’s secular song L’amante segreto (The Secret Lover), and the mysterious thirteenth variation of Elgar’s Enigma Variations begins a section dealing with coded expressions of affection. Each variation was named for a friend of Elgar’s, and this highly romantic movement, given only as “***” is suspected to refer to Helen Weaver, who was once engaged to the composer. Brahms’s Sextet for Strings no. 2 and Berg’s Lyric Suite both spell out the names of women with whom their composers were infatuated.

What E.M. Forster refers to as “a great unrecorded history” of LGBT+ love stories are revealed in the next section. De Profundis, the great letter Oscar Wilde wrote, ostensibly to his lover Lord Alfred Douglas, during his time imprisoned in Reading Gaol, introduce a swathe of queer love letters – from Tove Jansson to Vivica Bandler, from E.M. Forster about his lover Mohammed el-Adl, from Virginia Woolf to Vita Sackville-West, and Benjamin Britten to Peter Pears. A E Housman’s Because I Liked You Better, about a doomed and possibly unrequited secret love between men and never published during Housman’s lifetime, is given in contrast to Perfume Genius’s Alan, which depicts the delicate, casual intimacy of a marriage between men today.

The link between discoveries inside the human soul and out in the wide universe begins with Alan Turing, who kept the secret of his sexuality whilst making game-changing discoveries during the second world war, is the subject of James McCarthy’s Codebreaker oratorio. Musical and written accounts of Turing’s enigmatic persona and major codebreaking discoveries give way to Thomas Hardy’s reflection on seeing an archaeopteryx fossil In A Museum, Emily Dickinson’s much-debated metaphoric treatment of the earth’s surface in The reticent volcano keeps, and to two very different takes on archaeology. Mike Pitts’ history of British archaeology resonates with eerie ancient Scandinavian music performed on a bone flute, reconstructed from an archaeological discovery made in Sweden.

Anna Meredith’s Blackfriars, a piece Meredith refuses to ascribe or reveal any meaning to, accompanies fragments of American poet Maggie Nelson’s Bluets. Colin Matthews’s completion of Holst’s The Planets, adds Pluto – the Renewer. Pluto was discovered as a planet well after Holst wrote his Planets suite, and then tragically demoted from planet status after Colin Matthews went to the effort of writing it into the suite.

This edition of Words & Music ends a journey from secrecy to discovery on a complicated note: Margaret Atwood’s Journey to the Interior expresses an uneasy desire to venture out into the undiscovered worlds of the wilderness and the self, whilst out of the multi-layered chaos of Philip Glass’s Einstein on the Beach, a love story to rise to the surface: lovers on a park bench. Not a million miles away from the garden we started in.

"And what sort of story shall we hear? Ah, it will be a familiar story, a story that is so very, very old, and yet it is so new."

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0017lqw)
The Lark Descending

Half environmental warning, half re-imagining of a classic work - The Lark Descending features the premiere of Hinako Omori’s new electronic arrangement of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending.

When Vaughan Williams wrote his most famous work in 1914, the skylark would have been a ubiquitous presence in the British countryside, but today the skylark is on the "red list" of conservation concern. This bird may have inspired one of the most famous pieces of classical music ever, but now we’re facing an increasingly silent sky.

Between The Ears explores what we have lost, presenting The Lark Ascending in a new light, with a fresh, electronic arrangement. Here, the soloist is the skylark itself - captured by veteran sound recordist Chris Watson in Northumberland this spring.

Naturalist and broadcaster Lucy ‘Lapwing’ Hodson explores the relationship between The Lark Ascending and the birds disappearing from our skies. Along the way, Lucy meets concert violinist Jennifer Pike at Vaughan Williams’s childhood home, producer and nature beatboxer Jason Singh, and writer and conservationist Laurence Rose.

150 years after Vaughan Williams was born, the contrast between the popularity of his most famous work and the steady decline of skylark numbers in the UK has never been as stark. Composer Hinako Omori's electronic re-imagining of the piece explores this contrast, in the premiere of her new arrangement Conversation With A Lark.

Produced in binaural sound, immerse yourself in the skylark’s world by wearing headphones for the best listening experience.

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m0017lqy)
Dylan And The Ferry

New Generation Thinker and Bob Dylan fan Dafydd Mills Daniel investigates the story behind the iconic image of the singer/songwriter that appeared on the poster for the documentary No Direction Home.

It's a black and white photo of Dylan on a small car ferry. The ferry was called The Severn Princess and it transported drivers across the River Severn, between England and Wales. Dylan was using the Aust Ferry to convey his new electric guitar and sound into Wales – a sound that for audiences at the end of that ferry ride was perceived as new and destructive, signalling the end of traditional folk music and culture – just as, ironically, the old ferry Dylan was travelling on was itself under threat from something new that was about to replace it: a new bridge and roadway that would make it and its ethos obsolete.

Dafydd returns to the scene of the photograph in the company of Tim Ryan and Sue Kingdom who are running a campaign to preserve the Princess, which is now docked on a beach near Chepstow. He also talks to Richard F. Thomas, author of Why Dylan Matters, about the so-called "Judas Tour".

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0017m50)
Handel and the Crown

Divided Loyalties

Handel finds himself in demand at rival royal courts in Germany and Britain. Which will he choose? Presented by Donald Macleod.

What could be more quintessentially British than a rousing chorus of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus? Or his anthem Zadok the Priest, which has been performed at every British coronation since 1727? Yet, though the composer became was a naturalised British subject, he was born in Germany and kept his German accent all of his life. The same was true of the two kings Handel served, George I and George II. This week, as we head towards a royal jubilee weekend, Donald Macleod explores Handel’s crucial relationship with the British monarchy, and how he and the Georgian Kings helped forge a new sense of British culture and identity.

In today’s programme, Donald follows Handel to Hanover, and a prestigious new job at the court of the prince-elector. Almost immediately he’s restless to explore new opportunities. Then, London beckons.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m000p1nt)
Composers and Their Dogs

Newfoundlands

Essay One: Newfoundlands

A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Composer Richard Wagner loved this huge, gentle, shaggy Canadian dog breed, having many in his lifetime. The essay includes the rollercoaster tale of Wagner’s daring escape across international borders, dragging his massive Newfoundland, Robber, with him. On arrival in Paris, Robber became a bigger celebrity than Wagner before fame finally came to the composer. The journey inspired Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman. Lord Byron was devoted to his Newfoundlands. His first, Boatswain, resulted in portraits, an elegy and a grand tomb and his last Newfoundland probably caused Byron’s death. Newfoundlands have webbed feet, are great swimmers and have rescued many people from drowning; still being used today by sea rescue services, these fearless dogs leap from helicopters into the water to rescue people.

Handel and the Crown

Diplomatic Manoeuvres

Hanover’s prince-elector plans to capitalise on Handel’s favour with the British queen. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Handel was born in Germany, but he became a naturalised British citizen at the same time that two other native Germans, King George I and King George II, were also learning to be British after their house of Hanover acceded to the crown in 1714. This week, as we head towards the jubilee bank holiday, Donald Macleod uncovers Handel’s fascinating relationship with Britain’s monarchs, and examines how he and the Georgian kings helped kick-start a new age of British culture and identity.

In today’s programme, Handel appears to have cut his ties completely with the house of Hanover and pledged his loyalty to Britain’s Queen Anne. But not everything is as it seems. Queen Anne is sick, and Handel has a vital role to play behind the scenes, as the royal courts in both London and Hanover plan for the succession.

2022 Hay Festival – Dvořák Plus performed by Aleksey Semenenko (1/4)

Sarah Walker presents Dvořák Plus, with music performed by the violinist Aleksey Semenenko with the pianist Sam Haywood, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2022 Hay Festival. The concert includes Dvořák’s Sonatina, composed in America and featuring a theme he noted down on his shirt cuff, when visiting the awesome natural wonder of the Minnehaha Falls. The programme also features music by Austrian composer Maria Theresia von Paradis. Paradis was a pianist, organist and singer, and composers such as Mozart, Salieri and possibly Haydn all dedicated concertos to her. The Sicilenne by Paradis is her most popular work.

In the second half of the concert, we hear music by the Swedish violinist and composer Amanda Röntgen-Maier. Marriage to fellow composer Julius Röntgen ended her career as a performer, but the couple arranged private musical salons for the likes of Grieg, Joachim and Brahms. It was during her studies in Germany when in her twenties, that she composed her violin sonata. The concert then ends with a popular work by another violinist and composer, Sarasate, who was known for composing technically difficult music.

Stutzmann conducts Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pathétique’ Symphony

The BBC Symphony Orchestra and BBC Symphony Chorus conducted by Natalie Stuzmann in Brahms' Nänie, Song of the Fates, and Song of Destiny. Plus Tchaikovsky's great Symphony No.6.

In the combination of choir and orchestra, Brahms found a perfect medium for spellbinding visions of paradise and heartfelt lamentations for lost love. Both are enshrined in the hushed tones of Nänie, Song of the Fates and the Song of Destiny, for which debuting conductor Nathalie Stutzmann marshals the full forces of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.

The atmosphere intensifies with a symphonic drama by a composer who always wore his heart on his sleeve. Tchaikovsky conducted this work’s premiere just nine days before his death, the cause of which remains unsolved. Whatever the true story, the music is the most emotional symphony Tchaikovsky ever wrote – a vivid, moving concert hall experience.

Composers and Their Dogs

Old English Sheepdogs

Essay Two: Old English Sheepdogs

A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Composer, eccentric and suffragette Dame Ethel Smyth, the first woman to have an Opera put on at the Met, had five Old English Sheepdogs in succession, all called 'Pan'. She was so obsessed with her dogs that she considered them almost like husbands and wrote a book about the depth of feeling and the need for composers to have canine companionship, called “Inordinate (?) Affection” with the question mark showing she knew others found her obsession odd. Her famous friends and lovers included Emmeline Pankhurst and Virginia Woolf, These sturdy dogs were used as herding dogs whose tails were docked for centuries to avoid taxes and only started being bred with long tails again from 2006. Other musical devotees include Paul McCartney, whose first of many Old English sheepdogs inspired the Beatles song “Martha My Dear”.

Handel and the Crown

New Broom

The death of King George I brings new challenges for Handel, and new opportunities. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Handel was born in Germany, but he became a naturalised British citizen at the same time that two other native Germans, King George I and King George II, were also learning to be British after their house of Hanover acceded to the crown in 1714. This week, as we head towards the jubilee bank holiday, Donald Macleod uncovers Handel’s fascinating relationship with Britain’s monarchs, and examines how he and the Georgian Kings helped kick-start a new age of British culture and identity.

Today, an escalating rivalry between Handel’s star sopranos at his opera company creates a terrible breach of royal etiquette. The accession of a new British king leads to a key turning point in Handel’s relationship with his adopted country.

Final Flourishes

From Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Ben Gernon and the BBC Philharmonic host a concert showcasing three works by composers who brought the experience and skills honed by a lifetime's experience to create breathtaking works that continue to inspire and amaze. The orchestra is joined by Manchester musicians at the start of their musical adventures.

The programme begins that Manchester collaboration: the BBC Philharmonic is joined by soloists from Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music and from Chetham's School of Music for Haydn's final stunning Mass, his "Harmoniemesse". Named after the German term "Harmonie", meaning a wind ensemble, the woodwind and horns weave their way through the piece, adding another dimension of character and colour to a genre which he already knew well. Written for Esterhazy, he was at home here in a community in which he was loved, respected and had been encouraged to experiment. Haydn looks back to the Baroque but also forward to larger-scale works of the nineteenth century. Instrumental colour and inspiration from the Baroque are also important in Webern's delicate orchestration of Bach's six-part Ricercar from his Musical Offering. Using a tune given to him by Frederick the Great, Bach created a weave of the material but didn't specify an instrument to play his composition. Twentieth century genius orchestrator Anton Webern colours Bach's work, bringing the notes off the page to create an extra dimension of line and texture. The concert began with a final Mass and ends with a final Symphony, Mozart's. Echoes of Bach's counterpoint resound in the astonishing last movement of the breathtaking "Jupiter" Symphony.

Amia Srinivasan and Philosophical Genealogy

In Amia Srinivasan's book The Right to Sex, she discusses some of the most hotly controversial topics of today: sex work, pornography, the nature of sexual liberation. What can and should a philosopher bring to these debates?

Also, we explore one of the philosophical techniques informing Srinivasan's work: genealogy. First named by Friedrich Nietzsche (although arguably practised by philosophers before him) and developed by Michel Foucault and Bernard Williams, amongst others, genealogy seeks to investigate concepts and institutions by looking at the contingent historical situations in which they arose and that have shaped them over time.

Christopher Harding in conversation with Amia Srinivasan, Caterina Dutilh Vovaes and Christoph Schurinnga.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m000p02g)
Composers and Their Dogs

Poodles

Essay Three: Poodles

A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

As an older man, Joseph Haydn was very comfortably off, living in the Esterhazy court in eastern Austria. An unlikely flirtation developed between him and a young woman who inadvertently offended him, when an incredible tale about her lover’s poodle prompted her to beg Haydn to set the tale to music. The story uncovers the depth of his loneliness and the fragility of his ego. Frédéric Chopin is famously reported as having been besotted with his lover, Georges Sand's toy poodle, who was the inspiration for his Minute Waltz due to its pirouetting. However, our research shows this not to be the case – not only was the white fluffy dog in question probably not a toy poodle, but the name of the waltz has much less to do with sixty seconds and far more to do with dog sizes. Poodles in the 1960s were seen as glamour dogs, the choice of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Walt Disney and surprisingly also Elvis Presley who gave them as gifts to women he courted. There's been a resurgence in recent decades for cross-breeding poodles as their coats are non-allergic for humans. Plus, poodle tales involving Beethoven, and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Handel and the Crown

A Break with the Past

Handel decides his career needs a change of direction following an important trip to Ireland. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Handel was born in Germany, but he became a naturalised British citizen at the same time that two other native Germans, King George I and King George II, were also learning to be British after their house of Hanover acceded to the crown in 1714. This week, as we head towards the jubilee bank holiday, Donald Macleod uncovers Handel’s fascinating relationship with Britain’s monarchs, and examines how he and the Georgian kings helped kick-start a new age of British culture and identity.

Today, Handel loses one of his staunchest allies within the royal family, and he searches for a new business model as Britain’s theatregoers fall out of love with his beloved Italian opera.

Their programme features the Israeli-American composer, Shulamit Ran. She’s a recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, and her Soliloquy, with its distinctly Middle-Eastern flavour, was composed in 1997. This is followed by Dvořák’s Piano Trio No 3, composed over one hundred years earlier in 1883. A four movement work, it’s akin to other rather dramatic works he composed in the same period including his Hussite Overture and 7th symphony. Dvořák himself took part in the premiere.

We'll also hear excerpts from Malcolm Arnold's Homage to the Queen ballet suite and Britten's Gloriana opera, both commissioned in honour of the Queen's Coronation.

A few years ago the Queen was asked about her favourite pieces of music. Fred Astaire's Cheek to Cheek was one of her choices and she also enjoys music by Duke Ellington - after meeting Ellington in 1958, Ellington outlined the movements of his Queen's Suite. He sent it privately to the Queen and it was only issued commercially after his death.

I Was Glad has become an essential part of the British coronation ceremony since its first inclusion in 1902 at the crowning of Edward VI. The anthem is a superb piece of ceremonial music; tonight, it’s performed in an orchestration by Gordon Jacob, made for the 1953 Coronation of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.
Tchaikovsky’s music for Shakespeare’s The Tempest evokes the atmospheres and passions of the play. The gently undulating sea in the opening is calm on the surface, but a storm is on its way, which will change the lives of the characters for ever. The music which Walton wrote for Olivier’s Henry V was one of his most celebrated film scores. Christopher Palmer has reworked Walton’s score into a concert piece, featuring some of Shakespeare’s most rousing speeches, recited tonight by Alex Hassell.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m000p1dz)
Composers and Their Dogs

Dachshunds

Essay Four: Dachshunds

A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Composers Benjamin Britten and Leonard Bernstein were both dachshund aficionados, with stories galore about both. Benjamin Britten was almost inseparable from his dachshunds, taking them to rehearsals and concerts. He was often to be seen walking along the Suffolk coast with his dachshunds and the famous Red House in Aldeburgh has signs in many languages (many from other famous composers and musicians) warning people to beware of the fierce dogs. This was not as fanciful as it might appear. These ‘sausage dogs’ are figures of fun, but they were bred and trained to flush out rabbits or badgers, often known as badger hounds and are fearless fighters. Research marks dachshunds out as amongst the most aggressive breeds, fiercely defending their owners. Leonard Bernstein had a succession of very badly behaved dachshunds, all named Henry. When he was abroad on tour, if he had not taken one of his dachshunds with him, he would often commandeer other peoples’ dachshunds and got a reputation for being a serial dog kidnapper ; but who was going to say “No” to the famous composer? Artists also devoted to dachshunds included Picasso.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0017m8h)
Handel and the Crown

Politics and Pageantry

When Bonnie Prince Charlie marches against London and George II, Handel rallies to the Hanoverian cause. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Handel was born in Germany, but he became a naturalised British citizen at the same time that two other native Germans, King George I and King George II, were also learning to be British after their house of Hanover acceded to the crown in 1714. This week, as we head towards the jubilee bank holiday, Donald Macleod uncovers Handel’s fascinating relationship with Britain’s monarchs, and examines how he and the Georgian kings helped kick-start a new age of British culture and identity.

Today, we see how Handel, now in his sixties, continued to find musical ways to demonstrate his unswerving loyalty to his king and fellow German expatriate, George II. Donald introduces works to celebrate the crown’s victory over the Jacobites, and Handel’s enduringly popular Music for the Royal Fireworks.

Sarah Walker presents Dvořák Plus, with music performed by the soprano Ruby Hughes accompanied by the pianist and composer Huw Watkins, recorded at St Mary's Church, Hay-on-Wye, during the 2022 Hay Festival. Their concert begins with a selection of songs by Dvořák, which includes his most popular number, Songs my mother taught me. These are followed by the first concert performance of four Romances by the Russian pianist and composer, Leokadiya Kashperova, who was a favoured interpreter of the works of Glazunov and Balakirev. Kashperova did perform these songs in her own home at private soirees, but this will be their first outing in a public concert setting.

The second part of the concert features music by another composer and pianist, Huw Watkins. Echo was premiered by Ruby Hughes at Carnegie Hall in 2017. It’s the fifth song cycle by Watkins, and sets texts by Dickinson, Rossetti, Yeats, Larkin and Harsent. The concert then ends with two popular settings of folksongs by Benjamin Britten.

BBC NOW, live at St David's Cathedral

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and their Principal Conductor, Ryan Bancroft, celebrate the Queen's platinum jubilee at St Davids Cathedral Festival. They begin their performance with the Courtly Dances from Benjamin Britten's Gloriana, an opera based on the relationship between Elizabeth I and the Earl of Essex, which Britten wrote in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. Pianist Stewart Goodyear will then join Ryan and the Orchestra for Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto, a work that he describes as being "music of joyous collaboration". After the interval, the world premiere of a BBC commission by Alex Mills will be performed. Titled Landsker, it takes its inspiration from the imaginary line which divides the English and Welsh-speaking areas of West Wales. The evening will then culminate in Schumann's First Symphony, a work he titled ‘Spring’, and which displays the irrepressible joy of the Romantic composer not long after his wedding to his beloved Clara.

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents live from St Davids Cathedral.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (m0017m8r)
The Verb at Hay

Ian McMillan is always at home in front of a crowd, and in this programme, recorded at Hay Festival, he is joined by some of our most exciting writers, performers and poets to explore the idea of homeliness - literal or metaphorical and to ask if writing can be a kind of home.

His guests are: the poet Lemn Sissay, whose latest book, for children, is a celebration of curiosity and belonging; by Monica Ali, who casts her eye across family matters in her new novel 'Love Marriage'; by Daniel Morden - a consummate storyteller and performer, acquainted with all the myths of belonging; and by Tishani Doshi, whose poetry and prose is alert to the possibilities of a home - in the poem or in the body.

We also share a brand-new poetry commission for the BBC's centenary - part of our 'Something Old, Something New' series.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m000p0jg)
Composers and Their Dogs

Cocker Spaniels

Essay Five: Cocker Spaniels

A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Elton John was so devoted to his cocker spaniel, Arthur, that not only did the dog get given Elton’s original surname, Dwight, but he was also the best man at his owner’s wedding to David Furnish. Sir Edward Elgar was not allowed dogs by his wife during their decades-long marriage. When she died, he had dogs for the rest of his life, his favourite being his spaniel Marco. He would address Marco from live radio broadcasts, and the dog would react on hearing his master’s voice say his name. Poet Elizabeth Barrett idolised her cocker spaniel, Flush, who bit husband-to-be Robert Browning, was stolen, recovered, eloped with them and was the subject of a biography by Virginia Woolf. Other surprises include cocker spaniels being the first dog breed to detect cancer by smell.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0010q4l)
Rubbish Music

It’s not just any old rubbish this week on Late Junction: Jennifer Lucy Allan dumpster dives to share music made from and inspired by the world of waste, rummaging through her bins to bring you music from instruments made of recycled materials and odes to waste management. As London’s Design Museum launches their exhibition asking how we can reinvent our relationship with waste, Late Junction explores how artists have made music with and about literal rubbish.

Embracing the concept of ‘one man's rubbish is another man's treasure’, there’ll be plenty of music made by instruments created from things others have thrown away, from the likes of the Congolese eco-friendly collective Fulu Miziki, sculptor of found objects Lonnie Holley, and the plastic-obsessed electronic duo Matmos. There’ll be field recordings from a Materials Recovery Facility in Massachusetts, as well as the sounds of British post-punk trio Trash Kit. Plus brand new releases elsewhere in the show, including György Ligeti reimagined by a chorus of teenagers with composer Marina Rosenfeld and fuzzy ambience from Nigerian sound artist and violist Ibukun Sunday.
