SATURDAY 18 JUNE 2022

SAT 01:00 Composed with Emeli Sandé (m00182d2)
Feel the sunshine with midsummer music

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

This week's episode celebrates long summer days, with tunes to soundtrack sun salutations or other meditations, from Claude Debussy, Grace Jones and Barrington Levy.

And in this, and every episode, Emeli invites listeners to join her in Composure Moment. This week, put everything on pause, for Ólafur Arnalds, a composer who believes there’s a layer to music that we don’t hear, we just feel.

9.30am Building A Library: Roger Parker on Haydn’s operas

Joseph Haydn is possibly one of the greatest composers who wrote operas which are hardly known. He wrote 17 of them, and opera occupied a great deal of his composing life. During the 1770s and 1780s, Haydn ran an opera company for his employer, Prince Nikolaus Esterházy. They put on up to 150 performances per year. Haydn's operas are not often performed today, but they contain some great music which Roger explores.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0018875)
Scottish Opera at 60, Jan Carson, Felix Yaniewicz Exhibition

As Scottish Opera celebrates its sixtieth anniversary, Kate Molleson talks to key figures and artists from the company about its past, present and future including the company's General Director Alex Reedijk, Emerging Artist Lea Shaw, critic Ken Walton and conductor Donald Runnicles.

Kate speaks to Josie Dixon, curator of the exhibition ‘Music and Migration in Georgian Edinburgh’ which tells the story of Felix Yaniewicz, a Polish-Lithuanian virtuoso violinist who founded the first ever Edinburgh Festival, and to the satirist, writer and director Armando Iannucci who is giving a talk about music, migration and Scotland.

Novelist, short-story writer, and community arts worker Jan Carson talks to Kate about her new collaboration with the Ulster Orchestra and children from Carniny Primary School in Ballymena, County Antrim.

And as music venues across the UK prepare for a summer of live music free of covid restrictions, we look at the extent to which audiences are returning to the concert halls and what impact that has on a venue’s programming. Kate speaks to David Dodd of the Hall for Cornwall, Jane Ann Purdy, co-director of the Soundhouse concerts which take place at the Traverse in Edinburgh, and Neil Bennison from the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham.

Producer: Graham Rogers

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m00188mm)
Leoš Janáček: The Cunning Little Vixen

One of the few operas inspired by a cartoon strip, The Cunning Little Vixen is one of Janáček's late, great works. Despite its simple story (a forester captures a vixen who then escapes, breeds and is eventually shot by a poacher) the opera nevertheless explores the big themes as the human condition – ageing, life lived in misery and regret – is contrasted with the freedom, joy and vigour of animal life and the ineluctable force of nature and its constant renewal.

Soprano Sally Matthews took the title role in English National Opera's new production, including a cast of fauna drawn from local schools, and in the pit, Martyn Brabbins conducted Janáček's luminous score.

Recorded in February at the Coliseum in London and introduced by Flora Willson in conversation with Nigel Simeone.

SUNDAY 19 JUNE 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m00188mr)
Long distance improv

The Oxford Improvisers came together online from different locations in 2021, to create a space of collaboration and dialogue in a piece called Between, a reflection of the physical distances between players. Here, they weave a world of ever emergent textures and terrains, filled with quiet sliding doors and rousing cacophonies.

Trio Eris 136199 - Catherine Sikora, Han-earl Park and Nick Didkovsky - mark their 10th anniversary with a long-distance improvisational collage, bringing new life to a performance originally recorded in Derby in 2017. Each player recorded a new part resulting in tectonic shifts, extraterrestrial buzzing and clandestine whispers across time. As Nick Didkovsky notes, “It's like peering into a parallel universe and listening to what Eris in that world sounds like.”

Elsewhere in the programme we hear a piece of rich and expansive improvising from a custodian of Shona culture, the late Zimbabwean master mbira player Dumisani Maraire. A committed ethnomusicologist, he created a new notation system for the instrument, and championed Zimbabwean music around the world.

Plus, the soft laid-back voice of Jesse Belvin shines in Blues in the Night…

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0010nwy)
Mark Solms

Mark Solms is a neuroscientist who has spent his whole career investigating the mysteries of consciousness. His research throws light on some of the most difficult questions of all: how does the mind connect to the body? Why does it feel like something to be you? Born in Namibia and educated in South Africa, he came to Britain in his late twenties to avoid military service under the apartheid regime. He made his name with research into what happens in the brain when we’re dreaming; then he startled his scientific colleagues by training as a psychoanalyst, something which, he says, “put me at odds with the rest of my field”. He’s now very unusual in holding eminent positions within both psychoanalysis and scientific research. He’s the author of six books – his latest is "The Hidden Spring" – and he divides his time between London and Cape Town, where he also pursues his other career... as a winemaker.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Mark Solms reveals the traumatic childhood event which made him determined to become a doctor, when his brother jumped off a roof and suffered a major brain injury. He discusses the latest research on dreams, and how working with brain-damaged people can teach us about the nature of consciousness. And he tells the story of how he tried to rescue his family vineyard from the wider historical trauma of the apartheid past.

Mark chooses music which he hopes will illuminate the nature of consciousness itself: Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata, Bach, Ligeti, Chopin, and Talking Heads.

From Wigmore Hall, Nevermind, four of France's leading Baroque music specialists showcase the remarkable chamber music of Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre who, at the age of five, caught the attention of Louis XIV and went on to become one of the most acclaimed musicians of her time. Indeed one contemporary accorded her a place on his Mount Parnassus directly below Lully and next to Lalande and Marais.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m000k8xz)
Hercules at the Crossroads

The ancient Greek tale, Hercules at the Crossroads, sees the man of the moment offered a choice between Vice and Virtue. Personifications of each visit him to offer the option of a pleasant and easy life, or a hard but glorious one. It was all the rage in the Renaissance, inspiring writers and artists and remained so to the time of Bach and Handel. Two pillars of the Baroque, each knowing something of pleasure and toil, and each setting this Herculean conundrum in his own style. Which will you choose?

Music comes from recordings of Bach's secular cantata "Laßt uns Sorgen, laßt uns wachen", BWV.213 and Handel's 1750 oratorio "The Choice of Hercules".

Presented by Hannah French.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m00057gs)
Nomads

Emma Paetz and Nicholas Farrell read from Cervantes and Louise Doughty to Abd al Qadir as today's journey of words and music moves from the desert to tramping along English country roads ahead of Refugee Week 2022 (June 20th - 26th).

Our past is nomadic. Our ancestors roamed around, moving according to the seasons and the availability of food. The historian Yuval Noah Harari suggests that our subsequent adoption of settled, agricultural lives represented a massive blow to human well-being, bringing with it unstinting labour and disease. Does this go some way to explaining the distrust and unease with which the settled have tended to regard nomads? Is there an atavistic envy at its root? That desire to wander still burns within many of us. We may be tethered to a particular part of the world by our work, our homes, our families, but we are restless, forever planning journeys to somewhere distant, somewhere new.

This programme explores the relationship between the nomad and that settled world. Nomads not just in the sense of traditionally itinerant people (including Bedouin, some Native American tribes and Roma – referred to as ‘gypsies’ by some of the writers here), but also those who are homeless or refugees. In short, those who have no fixed abode. So we hear field recordings both of Tuareg singers with a traditional Danse de tazengharaht, and an unnamed homeless man singing a hymn in Gavin Bryars’s Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet. The chorus of Hebrew slaves from Verdi’s Nabucco echoes the painful longing for a lost homeland experienced by refugees through the ages, while songs by Sibelius and Schubert show the figure of the wanderer in nature, gripped by both a sense of freedom and existential melancholia.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m00188kh)
Afterwords: Chinua Achebe

The life and ideas of Nigerian novelist, poet and critic Chinua Achebe, in his own words, and in the words of those who knew, loved, and were inspired by him.

Celebrated as “the Father of Modern African literature,” Achebe blazed a trail for African people centring themselves and their culture in their own stories. This began with the release of his debut novel, Things Fall Apart, in 1958. He believed fiercely in the power of stories to obscure or reveal identities, depending on who does the telling, and with that, came a duty to speak out about the failings and corruption of postcolonial Nigeria, and its suppression of stories around Biafra.

With contributions from Achebe’s close friend, the Somali novelist and poet Nuruddin Farah, the author Caryl Phillips, who began a friendship with Achebe after interviewing him in 2003, the young Nigerian writer Esther Ifesinachi Okonkwo who has taken inspiration from Achebe’s essays, and the Igbo historian (and Achebe’s youngest child) Dr Nwando Achebe.

Produced by Redzi Bernard.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m00188kk)
Maupassant’s Confessions of a Hedonist

A phantasmagorical journey through the most personal short stories of French writer and bon-viveur, Guy de Maupassant, adapted and translated by Simon Scardifield.

Telling his short stories to an invited guest becomes a matter of life and death for the author as he struggles to save his sanity. Will the power of his imagination be enough to pull him back from the brink.

Featuring adaptations of A Strange Night Out, Mouche, Laid To Rest, Cockcrow and Le Horla this is about the untold consequences of living fast and hard enough to keep the demons at bay.

Guy ….. Elliot Cowan
Mathilde ….. Holli Dempsey
Saval ….. Colin Ryan
Fly ….. Alexandra Hannant
Joseph ….. Gunnar Cauthery
Celeste ….. Ruth Everett
The Baron ….. Jonathan Forbes

Other parts were played by Matthew Durkan, Lloyd Thomas and Simon Scardifield

Directed by Gemma Jenkins

Maupassant was writing during the latter half of the 19th century. The world of the chosen stories is like entering a Toulouse Lautrec painting depicting the wild energy of Belle Epoque Paris. His later stories, of which Le Horla is one, are akin to experiencing the acid colours and trippy surrealism evident in the work of Odilon Redon.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0018860)
Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

A Requiem for Maria

Donald Macleod surveys Victoria’s duties as chaplain to a retired Empress Maria and the Requiem he composed for her funeral

Tomás Luis de Victoria has become the most famed Spanish composer of the Renaissance and ranks alongside Palestrina and Lassus as one of the greatest composers of the 16th century. He was a singer, organist, scholar, teacher, and a priest but it was in composition that he made his most significant impact. His motets, Offices for the Dead and music for Holy Week are admired for their great beauty and intensity and his musical talent thrust him into the orbit of Spain’s royal family and the most senior clerics in Rome. His devotion to God sat at the heart of his creative life; and he wrote, “there is not a single thing as useful as music, which, reaching our hearts soft but deeply, provides a clear benefit not only for our soul but also for our body.”

Today, Donald Macleod explores the last work Victoria published, his Missa pro defunctis. This Requiem Mass is believed to have been written and performed to mark the death of his employer, the Dowager Empress Maria in 1603. Victoria returned to Spain from Italy to work as Chaplain for the Empress in the mid to late 1580s, where he greatly enhanced the cultural prestige of her household. Although Victoria was expected to undertake various priestly duties, he also served as unofficial Director of Music to the convent where the Empress was living. The post allowed him much time to compose and also to travel to oversee his various publications. When Empress Maria was taken ill, Victoria was one of the chaplains who attended her, as nuns sang psalms and recited prayers. After her death, Victoria was charged with organising music for the numerous services of mourning which took place. His Requiem stands as one of the pinnacles of his musical achievements.

Notoriously reclusive, Lupu's concerts were not-to-be-missed events, his performances characterised by integrity, vision and imagination. He's ideally partnered here with Bernard Haitink in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 17, with its typically Mozartian combination of joyousness and melancholy. Haitink ends with an orchestral tour de force, Richard Strauss's vivid portrayal of an epic day in the mountains.

Claire Askew and Carmel Smickersgill

Elizabeth Alker returns for a new series of Northern Drift with poet, crime writer, and witch Claire Askew, and Manchester based composer and performer Carmel Smickersgill.

Claire's new poetry collection 'How to Burn a Woman' celebrates the lives of women accused of witchcraft and heresy - including her 16th-century ancestor Anne Askew, one of the earliest female English language poets and the first Englishwoman to request a divorce. She was tortured in the Tower of London and burnt at the stake in 1546, aged 25.

Currently under the mentorship of Anna Meredith, Carmel Smickersgill has been commissioned by the Liverpool Philharmonic's Ensemble 10/10, Galvanise Ensemble, and Fretwork. She's described her new EP 'We Get What We Want & We Don't Get Upset' as “silly music that comes from serious places”.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m001887b)
Moments of Being

Moments of Being

The minutiae of life have always fascinated Joanna Robertson. Moments like opening the curtains or shutters in the morning, putting the key in the lock when returning home, making dinner, or smelling the cooking of the neighbours. The author Virginia Woolf dismissed everyday repetitive rituals as 'moments of non-being', by contrast to epiphanies of experience or understanding that she saw as 'moments of being'.

Joanna Robertson argues that on the contrary, the deceptively insignificant everyday, is actually what our lives are made of. They shape, frame and colour our waking moments. Other writers, like Proust, or painters like Vermeer or van Hooch, appear to agree, and have captured the essence of the everyday in their art.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00188f9)
Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

Moving to the Eternal City

Donald Macleod follows the young composer from his Spanish home in Ávila to Rome.

Tomás Luis de Victoria has become the most famed Spanish composer of the Renaissance and ranks alongside Palestrina and Lassus as one of the greatest composers of the 16th century. He was a singer, organist, scholar, teacher, and a priest but it was in composition that he made his most significant impact. His motets, Offices for the Dead and music for Holy Week are admired for their great beauty and intensity and his musical talent thrust him into the orbit of Spain’s royal family and the most senior clerics in Rome. His devotion to God sat at the heart of his creative life; and he wrote, “there is not a single thing as useful as music, which, reaching our hearts soft but deeply, provides a clear benefit not only for our soul but also for our body.”

Victoria was born in 1548 in Ávila, Spain. In today’s programme, Donald Macleod explores how the city and its culture may have shaped the young composer. He became a choirboy at the Cathedral of Ávila, around the age of nine or ten, where he learned much about sacred music, its performance and composition. Victoria was then sent to Italy to prepare for holy orders, at the German College in Rome. It must have been an overwhelming experience for Victoria, arriving in the teeming metropolis of the Eternal City. He would have quickly encountered the music of Rome’s most celebrated composer, Palestrina, and it’s possible that Victoria was able to study with him, too.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m00188fk)
Sheffield

Crucible steel, a process developed around 1740, propelled Sheffield into the industrial future, giving rise to world-famous scissors, tools and cutlery manufacturers. Inevitably these firms are now in decline, but anybody with roots in the city is marked in some way by the industry. The Sheffield playwright Chris Bush’s new trilogy - Rock, Paper, Scissors - examines the city’s metalworking history through the stories of three generations working in the City’s oldest Scissors Factory.

The Poet Peter Sansom was not born in Sheffield but is deeply connected to it and his new collection Lanyard has poems dedicated to the city. He’s the founder and director of the Poetry Business and co-editor of The North magazine. What place does poetry have in the city reimagines itself after its steely past during a cost of living crisis? John Gallagher presents

Moments of Being

Windows

The minutiae of the everyday frame, shape and colour our lives. Joanna Robertson lives in Paris, and finds that the views from her fourth-floor flat have a real influence on her daily life. Looking out over the neighbourhood of Montparnasse, her windows let her eye and mind wander over the sites of much recent and not so recent cultural history.

Former residents whose residences she can still see, range from Irish playwright Samuel Beckett to Austro-Hungarian writer Joseph Roth. And, following in the footsteps of painter John Constable, Joanna too goes "skying", as he called it: observing the sky and its cloudscapes through the window. What's beyond the glass is both separate from, yet also inextricably part of her life.

Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

Becoming a Priest

Donald Macleod follows the young Victoria as he takes holy orders and seeks to improve his circumstances.

Tomás Luis de Victoria has become the most famed Spanish composer of the Renaissance and ranks alongside Palestrina and Lassus as one of the greatest composers of the 16th century. He was a singer, organist, scholar, teacher, and a priest but it was in composition that he made his most significant impact. His motets, Offices for the Dead and music for Holy Week are admired for their great beauty and intensity and his musical talent thrust him into the orbit of Spain’s royal family and the most senior clerics in Rome. His devotion to God sat at the heart of his creative life; and he wrote, “there is not a single thing as useful as music, which, reaching our hearts soft but deeply, provides a clear benefit not only for our soul but also for our body.”

In today’s programme, we find Victoria working as director of music at the church of Sant’Apollinare in Rome. His duties kept him very busy, including training the choir, tuning and maintaining the church’s organ and providing music for high mass on at least 180 days each year. Around 1575, Victoria was ordained and he was able to find a new position as a priest at San Girolamo. This role came with a better income and lodgings, and gave him more time to devote to composition. Victoria remained there for several years, bringing many of his works into print.

ETA Hoffmann

The German Romantic author of horror and fantasy published stories which form the basis of Jacques Offenbach's opera The Tales of Hoffmann, the ballet Coppélia and the Nutcracker. In the theatre he worked as a stagehand, decorator, playwright and manager and he wrote his own musical works, his opera Undine ended its run at the Berlin Theatre after a fire. But during his lifetime he also saw Warsaw and Berlin occupied by Napoleon and during the Prussian war against France, he wrote an account of his visit to the battlefields and he became entangled in various legal disputes towards the end of his life. Anne McElvoy marks 200 years since his death gathering together literary and musical scholars to look at his legacy.

Joanna Neilly is Associate Professor and Fellow and Tutor in German at the University of Oxford.

Moments of Being

Going for a Walk

'It's only the minutiae of life that are important,' wrote the Austro-Hungarian author Joseph Roth, announcing that he was 'going for a walk'. Joanna Robertson feels, and does, the same, and finds that far from small, the minutiae are actually infinite. Just walking from her Paris flat to a nearby bakery, yields so many observations, memories and encounters, that they conjure up the life of the whole street. From the homeless man sleeping, and dying, on the monastery's front steps, to the blazing row (and withering put-downs) of two usually tolerant ladies of Polish and Russian heritage respectively. Not to mention the rivalry between Joanna's dogs and those of a well-known model and designer, who every day claim each others' territory in ways only dogs will....

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0018919)
Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

Moving to a Convent

Donald Macleod sees Victoria return to Spain where he makes the most of his new Royal connections.

Tomás Luis de Victoria has become the most famed Spanish composer of the Renaissance and ranks alongside Palestrina and Lassus as one of the greatest composers of the 16th century. He was a singer, organist, scholar, teacher, and a priest but it was in composition that he made his most significant impact. His motets, Offices for the Dead and music for Holy Week are admired for their great beauty and intensity and his musical talent thrust him into the orbit of Spain’s royal family and the most senior clerics in Rome. His devotion to God sat at the heart of his creative life; and he wrote, “there is not a single thing as useful as music, which, reaching our hearts soft but deeply, provides a clear benefit not only for our soul but also for our body.”

Victoria had been hoping for some time to return home to Spain and seized his opportunity when a position arose in the household of the Spanish Dowager Empress Maria. Donald Macleod explores this fruitful period in Victoria’s career, in the employ of one of the senior members of Europe’s most powerful family, the Habsburgs. As part of the Empress’s staff in Madrid, Victoria came regularly into contact with influential members of the Spanish Court and was also involved in music making at the convent where Maria lived. His job gave him plenty of time to compose and also to travel; he often returned to Rome to oversee his publications and he was able to attend the funeral of the famed composer, Palestrina.

Moments of Being

The Lives of Others

Joanna Robertson believes it's the everyday moments that shape, frame and colour our lives. That includes observing, or imagining, the lives of others around us.

Are portraitists creating a mere image, or capturing the authentic selves of their subjects? The celebrated Belle Epoque painter Giovanni Boldini became a darling of Parisian society with his glamorous portrayals of society women, but a spontaneous portrait of a wealthy couple's gardener in eastern France, possibly painted for Boldini's own eyes only, inside the lid of his paintbox, gloriously reveals the gardener's inner life.

And what about the people we meet or see ourselves? Take the new neighbours who moved into a flat opposite. Their daily rituals, from their apparently perfect breakfast to their equally apparently perfect dinner, with all five regulation courses, every night, all seen through the windows. Why is observing them, with the resulting questioning of Joanna's own habits, such a vivid part of her and her daughters' daily life?

And then Joanna actually meets the family. How do they compare to their imagined selves?

Tomás Luis de Victoria (1548-1611)

Death of the Empress

Donald Macleod explores Victoria’s last published music, his Requiem, written for the death of the Dowager Empress Maria

Tomás Luis de Victoria has become the most famed Spanish composer of the Renaissance, and ranks alongside Palestrina and Lassus as one of the greatest composers of the 16th century. He was a singer, organist, scholar, teacher, and a priest, but it was in composition that he made his most significant impact. His motets, Offices for the Dead and music for Holy Week are admired for their great beauty and intensity and his musical talent thrust him into the orbit of Spain’s royal family and the most senior clerics in Rome. His devotion to God sat at the heart of his creative life; and he wrote, “there is not a single thing as useful as music, which, reaching our hearts soft but deeply, provides a clear benefit not only for our soul but also for our body.”

When the Dowager Empress Maria died in 1603, arrangements for the funeral were far from straightforward. As Donald Macleod relates in today’s episode, the Empress wanted only a simple service, and to be buried at the Convent where she’d been living. The King of Spain and his royal court felt very differently! Victoria was charged with writing music for the Empress’s Requiem Mass, and produced one of his most intense and heartfelt works. Little is known of Victoria’s life after the death of the Empress. He published his Requiem in 1605 and also stepped back from his unofficial role of Director of Music at the convent. The Empress’s will stipulated that Victoria should say Mass for his late employer every week - which he did until his own death in 1611.

Moments of Being

Miracle

Joanna Robertson argues that it's the regular, everyday moments and rituals that make up and frame the fabric of our lives. The details of dress or speech that shape and project an identity. Painters capturing an essence in time, like that of Madame Cezanne in Provence, dressed in blue, hair pulled tautly back into a bun, sitting next to a table with a white cup and saucer, spoon standing upwards in the cup. Or the myriad details, from by-passers to snippets of conversations to the design of a chair or cafe interior, which, when well observed, can turn the instant of taking the first sip of a milky coffee in that same cafe to the level of a miracle, where all surroundings coalesce into one, soul-sweetening moment.

Mostly known for her potent, psychotropic juke and footwork experiments, Aylu takes the sound of ordinary objects and assembles them to create something completely new, exploring different materials and their textures, and ascribing new meaning to the sounds that surround us on a daily basis.

Elsewhere in the show, thundering Egyptian grime from producer ABADIR, digitised Ghanaian highlife music, and a guided dream meditation aid crafted from polar expedition recordings, arranged by conceptual artist Aboutface.

Produced by Gabriel Francis
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3
