9.30am Building A Library: Tom Service on Walton’s First Symphony

In 1932, with the spectacular success of Belshazzar's Feast behind him, Walton began his Symphony No 1. But, always a slow worker, the symphony took him two painful years to complete – painful because what lay behind most of the Symphony was the emotional upheaval that came with the end of a relationship. The result was the greatest English symphony of its time, its darkly menacing first movement bursting with seemingly elemental power, is followed by a bitter scherzo marked Presto 'con malizia' ('with malice'), a melancholic slow movement and a joyful major key finale.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0018yjk)
The musical life of Blackpool

Presenter Tom Service visits Blackpool to explore the iconic seaside town’s rich musical history and learn more about the energy of a musical ecosystem famed for its ballrooms, dance bands, and Wurlitzer organs; to hear from the those responsible for creating new musical opportunities for the area’s residents and visitors; and to speak those nurturing the next generation of musicians from across the town.

Tom starts at the world-famous Tower Ballroom, where he hears organist Phil Kelsall after his turn at the Wurlitzer Organ. He also tours the wider Blackpool area with Andrew White, Head of Blackpool Music Hub, who tells Tom about his organisation’s work to break down the barriers that often exist in providing all children with access to musical instruments as well as giving them memorable opportunities to perform in Blackpool’s many entertainment venues. Music Director Helen Harrison also joins Tom to discuss the role of Blackpool Symphony Orchestra and its place at the heart of the town’s musical community.

Tom speaks to luminaries of Blackpool’s long tradition in band music, including David Windle, who directed the Tower Circus Band, as well as Bandleader Albie Hilton, and discusses the legacy of music making within the town’s dance circuit. And, local resident Elaine Smith reminisces about tripping the light fantastic in Blackpool’s many dance halls.

We’ve contributions, too, from Blackpool brethren including singer Alfie Boe and the singer-songwriter Rae Morris, eavesdrop on the George Formby Society convention, and talk to the visiting guitarist Alexander Hacke reflects on how the town inspired his experimental band Einsturzende Neubauten while recently recording their new album on location.

Today, Jeannette explores the importance of the key of D minor in several pieces, ranging from a fiery harpsichord concerto to a movement from Mozart’s Requiem.

Jeannette also enjoys folk songs that have found their way from the British Isles to American and Canada, and finds comfort in discovering the music of her own roots thanks to klezmer band She’koyokh.

John Scofield and Dave Holland in concert

Kevin Le Gendre presents live music from two giants in jazz, guitarist John Scofield and bassist Dave Holland, in concert at Tampere Jazz Happening 2021. Over their decade spanning careers, John Scofield and Dave Holland have recorded with the créme de la créme of the jazz world including Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, Roy Haynes and, most famously, Miles Davis (although at different times). As well as offering their impeccable rhythm and lyricism to countless jazz ensembles, they have also made their name as formidable band leaders and pioneers of their instruments. Performing as a duo, their Tampere Jazz Happening set offers an intimate mixture of their own compositions and timeless jazz standards.

Also in the programme, we hear from London-based, Berklee-trained rising star drummer Jas Kayser. Mentored by the likes of Terri Lyne Carrington, Danilo Perez and Ralph Peterson, Jas has since become one of the on-call drummers of the London jazz world and beyond, playing with the likes of Nubya Garcia, Alfa Mist, Ashley Henry, Kansas Smittys and Jorja Smith. She won Jazz FM's Breakthrough Act of 2021 and has recently released her debut album ‘Jas 5ive’ on jazz re:freshed. Here Jas shares some of the music that has inspired her, including a dream-like, groove driven track by West African duo the Cavemen.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0018ykx)
Katherine Rundell

Katherine Rundell started writing for children at the age of only 21; in little more than a decade she’s become one of our leading children’s writers, with six books so far, including the award-winning Rooftoppers, the story of a girl who travels across the rooftops of Paris looking for her mother. Katherine herself is a roof climber and a tightrope walker.

Born in 1987, she grew up in Zimbabwe and Brussels; after taking her undergraduate degree at Oxford, she was elected a Fellow of All Souls College where she wrote her PhD thesis on John Donne. Her book on that great metaphysical poet, Super-infinite: The Transformations of John Donne, was published earlier this year, to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the poet’s birth.

Katherine Rundell tells Michael Berkeley that her books set out to explain to children that life does contain loss, and pain, and darkness, but that it is always possible to discover joy. Her own childhood was marked by the loss of her sister and she says it is no accident that she lost her sister when she herself was ten and that she writes for ten-year-olds now. She talks too about her love of tightrope-walking and roof-climbing, and about her passion for John Donne, choosing two musical settings of his work. Other music choices include Mozart, Bach, Strauss, Fauré and Miles Davis.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000sht9)
Classical Commonwealth, Part 1

Errollyn Wallen unravels the story of how classical music fused with local musical traditions across the British Commonwealth, speaking to acclaimed conductor Zubin Mehta, soprano Patricia Rozario, composer and kora player Tunde Jegede and others.

Errollyn explores the remarkable musical hybrids that emerged in Nigeria, India and the Caribbean, as well as those from her own heritage in the Central American nation of Belize. We hear the fascinating stories - and music - of Nigeria's Fela Sowande, the Indian conductor Mehli Mehta (father of Zubin Mehta), and more recent composers that have sought to capture their cultural "in-between"-ness in sound, such as Naresh Sohal, Akin Euba, and Tunde Jegede.

Errollyn also explores challenging questions around our reception (and sometimes neglect) of this music in a postcolonial era. In celebrating and championing this repertoire - how much do we also need to confront ideas of musical colonialism? What does this all tell us about how musical culture was disseminated - and sometimes imposed - across the British Empire? And what should we make of it today?

Featuring contributions from acclaimed maestro Zubin Mehta and soprano Patricia Rozario - both born in Bombay, India; contemporary musicians Tunde Jegede, Olabode Omojola and Ankna Arockiam; and music historians Gina Scott, Stephen Banfield, Uchenna Ngwe, Hannah Marsden and Jon Silpayamanant.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0018yl5)
He Do The Waste Land in Different Voices - the Centenary of TS Eliot's poem

"Hurry up please it's time."

History pushes through the cracks of time: harried workers hurry across the river; in the glow of footlights an actor gives his final performance; in a seedy room Madame Sosostris turns the cards; a poet returned from the Great War, and his wife, both miserable in their marriage, wait for something to happen; a street prophet, a seer, finds his faith tested. Marie, an elderly displaced countess, somewhere in Europe, remembers her childhood, reads all night and waits for summer; while in a London pub women gossip. Watching over all of this, Tiresias, who can see everything, records the abuse of a young typist.

"These fragments I have shored against my ruins."

Eliot started writing The Waste Land as the Great War drew to a close and continued through the slippery, unsettling and uneasy post-war times that followed. The bodies of dead soldiers still littered the fields of France and Belgium, and those who returned are shell shocked, physically shattered and struggling to feed their families. In Whitehall committees meet to consider the threat of anarchism. Eliot's writing gropes to understand one world slipping away while another crawls out of the rubble. At the same time, as Eliot was to reflect, he was suffering from, 'a feeling of guilt in having married a woman I detested, and consequently a feeling that I must put up with anything.' His second wife, Valerie Eliot, recalled the years of The Waste Land, 'a terrible nightmare to him... all the horror.'

An early title for the poem was He Do the Police in Different Voices. It was taken from Dickens and refers to a character who read the newspaper out loud very well. Eliot was not to write drama for another ten years but the first glimmers of Eliot the dramatist are here in The Waste Land. It has been described as a radio play written before such a thing existed. It is possible to trace different characters, different voices, through the poem; this is the approach taken for this production, which is faithful to the text, recorded word for word as written, relishing the collection of voices within it.

Every word in the text is from the authorised text including the line reinstated by the Estate in the 2015 published edition of The Waste Land, and never before broadcast.

It is recorded in binaural and best listened to with headphones.

Before the poem itself, a Preface, an exploration of the poem with Lyndall Gordon (Senior Research Fellow, St Hilda’s College Oxford), Professor Mark Ford (University College London), Professor Seamus Perry (University of Oxford), Professor Stephen Connor (University of Cambridge). Nancy Fulford, archivist for the T S Eliot Estate, shows us some precious first editions and a revealing letter from the collection.

Marie & Madame Sosostris: Maggie Steed
The Seer: Adrian Edmondson
The Hyacinth Girl: Esme Scarborough
The Poet: Paul Ready
The Woman in the Pub: Tilly Vosburgh
The Actor: David Haig
Tiresias: David Calder

SUN 23:00 World of Classical (m0018ylc)
Pious Voices and Plucked Strings

How much richer would our listening experience be if we could join the dots between classical music traditions around the world?

In this three-part series, Thai-American cellist, composer and transcultural researcher Jon Silpayamanant traces shifting global trends across different musical cultures.

This episode visits the Middle Ages, and the emergence of music notation. Silpayamanant opens with music from the 12th century by Hildegard von Bingen, then travels back to show how liturgical chant was being preserved 600 years prior to this in Ethiopia, while developing in parallel in other Christian cultures such as Armenia. Other forms of musical record keeping were emerging in China, in the griot lineages of the Mali empire, and with the troubadours of south west Europe, allowing increasingly complex and rich musical traditions to be sustained.

A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0018ylq)
Hélène de Montgeroult (1764-1836)

Noble Beginnings

Donald Macleod begins the second leg of his “Tour de France” in three weeks focused on French composers across the centuries. This week, Donald introduces us to the remarkable life story and unsung musical innovations of Hélène de Montgeroult.

There aren’t many composers who can claim that music saved their life – at least, in the literal sense. But for Hélène de Montgeroult, it was her astounding powers of improvisation that got her out of the stickiest situation imaginable, hauled in front of the guillotine during the French Revolution. This week, we’ll follow her rollercoaster tale and hear how she had her own revolutionary impact on the piano literature. Described as a precursor of Romanticism, anticipating the language of Schubert and Mendelssohn, audiences said her playing “made the keys speak”. She broke ground as the first female professor at the Paris Conservatoire and left behind 600 pages of music, including a complete course for piano which elevated the technical study into a miniature lyrical art form. As Donald pieces together her tantalising story, he’s joined by pianist Clare Hammond, who has spent recent years getting to know Montgeroult and recording an album of her études.

Today, we hear about Hélène’s early years, growing up in aristocratic circles. For young women, the harpsichord was wielded as a tool for courtship but for Helene her musical prospects immediately ran deeper. Little did she know then that her noble background would eventually become one of her biggest artistic obstacles, and would even someday put her life in danger.

Larkin and Believing

The Mower

Amongst the 20th century's most significant English-language poets, Philip Larkin (1922-1985) is often regarded as one of literature’s great pessimists, a writer who described postwar Britain and the mores of modernity with a gloomy cynicism bordering on the fanatical. Dismissive of notions of god and religion, drawn to failures of human communication, he is a figure reluctantly moored to the meaninglessness of the quotidian. And yet, from such positions of despair, his poetry often reaches for the divine: he is also a soul in search of something beyond the seen, whose best poems reach for the numinous, celebrating moments of mystery and encounters with “unfenced existence”.

In a week of essays marking his centenary year, five contemporary poets each take a short poem by Larkin as the starting point for an exploration of their own attitudes to faith, belief and the spiritual. To begin the series, the London-born poet Raymond Antrobus responds to Larkin’s 'The Mower' with an essay on kindness, care and moments of epiphany. Weaving together accounts of his grandfather’s church sermons with reflections on the poetic craft, Antrobus considers how the certainty of his own atheism has shifted as he entered his thirties.

Hélène de Montgeroult (1764-1836)

The Revolution Rumbles

Donald Macleod continues the second leg of his “Tour de France"; three weeks focused on French composers from different eras, running alongside the famous French cycle race. This week, Donald introduces us to the remarkable life story and unsung musical innovations of Hélène de Montgeroult.

There aren’t many composers who can claim that music saved their life – at least, in the literal sense. But for Hélène de Montgeroult, it was her astounding powers of improvisation that got her out of the stickiest situation imaginable, hauled in front of the guillotine during the French Revolution. This week, we’ll follow her rollercoaster tale and hear how she had her own revolutionary impact on the piano literature. Described as a precursor of Romanticism, anticipating the language of Schubert and Mendelssohn, audiences said her playing “made the keys speak”. She broke ground as the first female professor at the Paris Conservatoire and left behind 600 pages of music, including a complete course for piano which elevated the technical study into a miniature lyrical artform. As Donald pieces together her tantalising story, he’s joined by pianist Clare Hammond, who has spent recent years getting to know Montgeroult and recording an album of her études.

Today, we hear how the newly-married Hélène joined the “grand monde” of Paris and made her mark on its most exclusive salons. But as the Great Terror hit the city, the ground began to tremble under her feet. She took flight with her husband, on a dramatic diplomatic mission, but their enemies were lying in wait.

This lavish sequence of festive music has become synonymous with tonight’s performers and combines brilliance and solemnity in a compelling and kaleidoscopic programme of masterpieces for combinations of voices, cornetts and sackbuts by Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli. The Gabrieli Consort & Players’ original 1989 recording, and the second recording in 2012, both won Gramophone Awards.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0018yqj)
Larkin and Believing

Water

Among the 20th-century's most significant English-language poets, Philip Larkin (1922-1985) is often regarded as one of literature’s great pessimists, a writer who described postwar Britain and the mores of modernity with a gloomy cynicism bordering on the fanatical. Dismissive of notions of god and religion, drawn to failures of human communication, he is a figure reluctantly moored to the meaninglessness of the quotidian. And yet, from such positions of despair, his poetry often reaches for the divine: he is also a soul in search of something beyond the seen, whose best poems reach for the numinous, celebrating moments of mystery and encounters with “unfenced existence”.

In a week of essays marking his centenary year, five contemporary poets each take a short poem by Larkin as the starting point for an exploration into their own attitudes to faith, belief and the spiritual. In this third episode, Jean Sprackland returns to the brewery town of Burton upon Trent, home to Saint Modwen, in a meditation on water as a miraculous and mundane presence in her life.

Hélène de Montgeroult (1764-1836)

Behind Closed Doors

Donald Macleod continues the second leg of his “Tour de France"; three weeks focused on French composers from different eras, running alongside the famous French cycle race. This week, Donald introduces us to the remarkable life story and unsung musical innovations of Hélène de Montgeroult.

There aren’t many composers who can claim that music saved their life – at least, in the literal sense. But for Hélène de Montgeroult, it was her astounding powers of improvisation that got her out of the stickiest situation imaginable, hauled in front of the guillotine during the French Revolution. This week, we’ll follow her rollercoaster tale and hear how she had her own revolutionary impact on the piano literature. Described as a precursor of Romanticism, anticipating the language of Schubert and Mendelssohn, audiences said her playing “made the keys speak”. She broke ground as the first female professor at the Paris Conservatoire and left behind 600 pages of music, including a complete course for piano which elevated the technical study into a miniature lyrical art form. As Donald pieces together her tantalising story, he’s joined by pianist Clare Hammond, who has spent recent years getting to know Montgeroult and recording an album of her études.

Today, Donald explores the twist and turns of Hélène’s private life, from her illegitimate son, who was possibly conceived in prison, to her three marriages and her not-so-secret affair with the Baron of Tremont. Plus, Donald and Clare talk about how intimacy was central to her music-making, which mainly took place in private spheres.

Cheltenham Festival 2022: Johan Dalene and Charles Owen

BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Johan Dalene, performs two major violin sonatas with pianist Charles Owen, live from the Pittville Pump Room in Cheltenham. Poulenc’s sonata was composed in Nazi occupied France and exudes rage, tragedy and profound sadness. He dedicated it to the murdered Spanish poet, Federico García Lorca. Grieg’s third sonata was the composer’s favourite, and he performed it often. The two urgent outer movements frame a meltingly beautiful middle section. Johan and Charles also perform Boulanger’s miniature evocation of a spring morning; full of restless, vibrant energy. Presented live by Ian Skelly.

This is followed by a romantic waltz for piano by the French composer Cecile Chaminade and Bach's Italian Concerto arranged for saxophone quartet. The pace calms down with the slow movement from Mozart's Fourth Horn Concerto and Leonardo Leo's Misereris omnium, Domine. The pulsating finale of the mixtape comes in the shape of Steve Reich's Quartet for two pianos and two vibraphones.

Expert guests will have 2000 rels - that’s 45 earth minutes - to explore Dalek culture, politics and philosophy, and to explore how Terry Nation’s creations carry the weight of the Second World War, the Cold War and contemporary arguments about race and difference.

Matthew is joined by Nicholas Briggs, who uses a voice modulator to give us the voice of the Daleks, and by Una McCormack, whose books have reached the USA Today best-selling lists.

Doctor Who and the Daleks and Daleks: Invasion Earth are being given a 4K restoration and screenings in UK cinemas across the summer.

Larkin and Believing

Ambulances

Among the 20th-century's most significant English-language poets, Philip Larkin (1922-1985) is often regarded as one of literature’s great pessimists, a writer who described postwar Britain and the mores of modernity with a gloomy cynicism bordering on the fanatical. Dismissive of notions of god and religion, drawn to failures of human communication, he is a figure reluctantly moored to the meaninglessness of the quotidian. And yet, from such positions of despair, his poetry often reaches for the divine: he is also a soul in search of something beyond the seen, whose best poems reach for the numinous, celebrating moments of mystery and encounters with “unfenced existence”.

In a week of essays to mark his centenary year, five UK poets each take a short poem by Larkin as the starting point for an exploration into their own attitudes to faith, belief and the spiritual. In this fourth episode, Vidyan Ravinthiran discusses the religious role played by the NHS in an essay on collective faith and private ritual, inspired by a close reading of Larkin’s poem 'Ambulances'.

Simon Armitage's Listening Chair

The UK’s Poet Laureate Simon Armitage has been a major force in British poetry for more than three decades. Much loved for the unflinching honesty he brings to explorations of modernity, Armitage’s portraits of people, places and things are often shot through with a playfully dark humour and offered up in colloquial language. Recent years have seen him take to the stage to deliver lyrics as a member of the bands LYR and The Scaremongers, and Armitage has written extensively about the songs and albums that have inspired and shaped him over the years. Sitting in the Unclassified Listening Chair he introduces a piece of music that transports him to another place.

Elsewhere in the programme, Elizabeth Alker selects an eclectic range of new sounds from the worlds of experimental and ambient music, including a restless horn-led electronic chorale by Ralph Heidel, art-rock lamentation courtesy of The Smile, and Ola Szmidt’s blissfully free-form vocals.

There aren’t many composers who can claim that music saved their life – at least, in the literal sense.

Today, Donald and Clare chat about Hélène’s musical imprint and how she’s now being brought back from obscurity, having all but disappeared from the story of French music. We hear about the scandal of her exit from the Paris Conservatoire, and how her pedagogical piano method may have had something to do with it. They dig deeper into her magnum opus, and discuss what her astonishing music has to offer to players and listeners today.

First Night of the Proms

Live at the BBC Proms: Verdi's Requiem opens the season. Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC SO, two choirs, Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha, Jennifer Johnston, Freddie De Tommaso and Kihwan Sim.

Presented by Georgia Mann and Petroc Trelawny, live from the Royal Albert Hall in London. Georgia and Petroc are joined in the box by Flora Willson, expert in 19th-century music and culture, to chat about the powerful work in this evening's concert, and look forward to the eight weeks of exciting music making ahead.

Verdi: Requiem

Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha, soprano

Kihwan Sim, bass
BBC Symphony Chorus
Crouch End Festival Chorus
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo, conductor

Giuseppe Verdi had a complicated relationship with religion: he asked to be buried with just ‘one priest, one candle, one cross’. But as a born dramatist, he knew how to tell a great story – and his colossal Requiem encompasses death, rebirth and the end of the world itself, in music that simply blazes with passion and power. Now, in the vast spaces of the Royal Albert Hall, Sakari Oramo assembles two choruses, a multinational team of solo singers (including 2021 Cardiff Singer of the World Song Prize winner Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha) and the full forces of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and prepares to raise the roof. A truly spectacular First Night of the 2022 BBC Proms.

There will be no interval.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (m0018ynt)
Games Day

It's the last Verb before we break up for the summer, so we're having an end-of-term games day. Philip Terry, poet and editor of 'The Penguin Book of Oulipo' joins us to play some avant-garde language games. We also look ahead to the 'Sound of Gaming' Prom, the very first prom to centre on Computer games music with Sound of Gaming presenter Louise Blain, who also gives us an insight into the techniques used in game narratives. Rhianna Pratchett is an award-winning video games writer. She tells Ian about creating the characters and story for titles such as Heavenly Sword and overlord. Verb regular Ira Lightman embraces the chaos.

Our 'Something New' this week comes from poet Will Harris. and our Something Old Archive recording is from Adrian Henri.

Producer: Jessica Treen


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0018ynw)
Larkin and Believing

Going

Among the 20th-century's most significant English-language poets, Philip Larkin (1922-1985) is often regarded as one of literature’s great pessimists, a writer who described postwar Britain and the mores of modernity with a gloomy cynicism bordering on the fanatical. Dismissive of notions of god and religion, drawn to failures of human communication, he is a figure reluctantly moored to the meaninglessness of the quotidian. And yet, from such positions of despair, his poetry often reaches for the divine: he is also a soul in search of something beyond the seen, whose best poems reach for the numinous, celebrating moments of mystery and encounters with “unfenced existence”.

In a week of essays marking his centenary year, five contemporary poets each take a short poem by Larkin as the starting point for an exploration into their own attitudes to faith, belief and the spiritual. In this concluding episode, Helen Mort visits her father in hospital in an essay on mortality, meaning and mystery, inspired by Larkin's verse 'Going'.
