9.30am Proms Composer: Louise Blain on gaming music

Louise Blain chooses five essential recordings of gaming music ahead of next week's Gaming Prom and explains why you need to hear them.

The music commissioned for gaming, which began as elementary electronic bleeps, is now an intrinsic part of the gaming experience, a sophisticated genre in itself rather than just an attractive add-on, often scored for large symphonic forces. And with the number of gamers expected to top 3 billion this year, it's no surprise that gaming music is now an international phenomenon increasingly performed by some of the world's finest orchestras in sold-out concert halls.

Philharmonia Voices
Hallé Orchestra
Sir Mark Elder (conductor)

Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé bring Puccini’s atmospheric Parisian tragedy Il Tabarro to the Proms – a score that swirls and throbs with the energy of the River Seine.
Natalya Romaniw stars as the unhappily married Giorgetta, whose affair is the catalyst for murder. Two orchestral favourites set the watery scene: Respighi’s Fountains of Rome – by turns glistening in the sunlight and swathed in dawn mist – and the irrepressible musical antics of Dukas’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

In the first half of the programme music from the recent Music and Maths Festival in Birmingham, including new works by Sergio Luque and Emily Howard.



SUNDAY 31 JULY 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0019kr8)
Drones

Corey Mwamba shares new improvised music that channels deep feeling.

American percussionist JoVia Armstrong draws inspiration from the likes of Sun Ra and Lee Scratch Perry to create drone-laden, aerial pieces that attempt to heal through an Afrofuturist approach to sound.

Drones make another appearance via a meditation on grief from the Athens-based Farwest Mandolinistic Orchestra. The quartet generate a glitching industrial atmosphere softly underscored by rippling strings.

Elsewhere in the programme, British double bassist Olie Brice amasses a supergroup of stellar UK improvisers offering a funhouse of sound that slips and slides in multiple directions. This octet features Jason Yarde, Rachel Musson, George Crowley, Cath Roberts, Alex Bonney, Kim Macari and Johnny Hunter.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (m0019l16)
Sarah Walker with a refreshing musical mix

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

Today, there's music with varied moods - unpredictability contrasts with peace and warmth in the writing of Margaret Rizza, while Mozart’s Piano Sonata in C minor combines light flowing passages with dark intense sonorities and intricate flourishes.

Sarah also discovers a surprise re-working of JS Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.2 for three guitars, and John Taverner’s Christe Jesu creates a rich soundscape with just five voices.

Plus, the precise and energetic bowing of the Kronos Quartet highlights rhythmic counterpoint in a piece by Kevin Volans…

Prom 19a: Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra

Live at the BBC Proms: the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra is conducted by Keri-Lynn Wilson with pianist Anna Fedorova and soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska.

Presented by Georgia Mann, live at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Valentin Silvestrov: Symphony No. 7
Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor
Beethoven: ‘Abscheulicher! … Komm, Hoffnung, lass den letzten Stern’
Brahms: Symphony No. 4 in E minor

Anna Fedorova (piano)
Liudmyla Monastyrska (soprano)
Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra
Keri-Lynn Wilson (conductor)

The newly formed Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra, made up of Ukrainian musicians – some from Ukraine’s major cities, some now displaced as refugees, and others who play in European orchestras – is a special late addition to this year’s Proms. Under Canadian-Ukrainian conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson the orchestra is a symbol of the remarkable resolve and determination shown by the people of Ukraine during the dark months of conflict – but also a beacon of hope for peace. They celebrate Ukraine’s leading living composer, Valentin Silvestrov, who escaped Kyiv with his daughter and granddaughter in March. ‘It is now clear how little we appreciate the times when peace reigns,’ he has since said, ‘and how fragile civilisation is.’ His deeply reflective Symphony No. 7 from 2003 complements Chopin’s ravishing Piano Concerto No. 2. And, after music from Beethoven’s great ‘rescue’ opera, Fidelio, with its themes of false imprisonment and hard-won freedom, Brahms’s final symphony offers tragic turbulence soothed by moments of defiant joy.


SUN 13:00 BBC Proms (m0019cpg)
2022

Proms at Truro: Scarlatti, Liszt and Chopin

From the BBC Proms: Alim Beisembayev plays Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 2 alongside music by Liszt and Scarlatti.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, from Hall for Cornwall, Truro.

Domenico Scarlatti: Piano Sonata in G major, K13
Domenico Scarlatti: Piano Sonata in C sharp minor, K247
Domenico Scarlatti: Piano Sonata in C minor, K22
Franz Liszt: Transcendental Études – No. 3: Paysage
Franz Liszt: Transcendental Études – No. 4: Mazeppa
Franz Liszt: Transcendental Études – No. 5: Feux follets
Frédéric Chopin: Piano Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 35

Alim Beisembayev (piano)

‘The most valuable commodity is a real musical personality,’ wrote Andrew Clements of The Guardian, reporting on the 2021 Leeds International Piano Competition. ‘To judge from the final, Beisembayev certainly has that.’ Since his victory at Leeds, this young piano virtuoso from Kazakhstan has seen his career take off, with critics applauding his ‘high-powered’ playing. In this, his Proms debut, he tackles three cornerstones of the keyboard repertoire: the vivacity and wit of Scarlatti’s sonatas, the high-Romantic drama of Chopin’s expansive Second Sonata and – like a sudden volley of fireworks at the heart of the recital – three of Liszt’s spectacular Transcendental Études.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m0019l1b)

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b0wrpd)
How does video game music work?

Bleep... bleep.... bleeeeep

It's amazing how a few electronic bleeps can tell us so much about what's going on in a video game without us even being aware of it

But music in video games has come a long way from the arcades, from the bleeps and bloops of Space Invaders and Super Mario to epic orchestral scores of the Legend of Zelda and Bioshock, Tom Service goes on an interactive odyssey to discover the secrets behind our favourite video game music. Along the way he meets composer Jessica Curry and video game expert Tim Summers who tell us what's really happening in the music when we're playing, the composer tricks of the trade and how video games can get new audiences closer to classical music.

bleeeeeeep... GAME OVER.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000pf0n)
Our Birmingham Fathers

Three people across Birmingham are grieving the recent loss of their musician fathers. Each is busy piecing together their father's life story and breathing new life into their musical legacy.

Their parents were from different musical worlds: Lionel Martin, the Jamaican saxophonist known as Saxa, who found fame with the 80s ska group The Beat; David Hindley, a composer who spent much of his life creating intricate classical piano music from recorded bird song; and Paul Murphy - singer, songwriter and mentor to many musicians in the city.

Their children come together, from three different areas of Birmingham, to tell each other their father's story and talk about their search for healing through music and memory.

Jo Hindley nursed her father David through years of dementia. In coming to terms with her loss, she is also beginning to understand and champion his unique gifts as a composer. Immersed in his vast archive, she is also dramatically changing her own life to confront the loss of the natural world that was his inspiration.

Francilla Martin remembers seeing her father on Top of the Pops, meeting David Bowie, entrancing everybody. Saxa was a huge personality and a mentor to a generation of Birmingham musicians, but never gave interviews. In writing his story she hopes to make sense of her own relationship with him.

Mark Murphy can’t yet bring himself to listen to some of his dad’s music. ‘Grief takes its own time’ he says, as he thinks of his dad’s early days with Van Morrison and Lemmy, of unreleased recordings, and what might happen to the amazing, elaborate tree-house from where Paul Murphy streamed folk concerts around the world.

With thanks to:

Rolf Hind for his performances of David Hindley's solo piano music: Skylark, Woodlark and Nightingale
Thomas Uhlman and John Bryden for their performances of David Hindley's piano duet: The Cuckoo's Nest.
Sasha Owen for the recordings of David Hindley's memorial concert.
Robin Valk and Valeria Rispo for the recordings at Paul Murphy's treehouse
Ska Machine: Andy Gayle, Andy Peate, Darren Dolczech, Mike Green, John McKinley and Ash, for their recordings with Saxa
And thanks to Jo Hindley, Mark Murphy and Francilla Martin for the use of their private recordings.

Prom 20: Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring

Live at the BBC Proms: the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Martyn Brabbins in Stravinsky, Xenakis, Birtwistle and Ravel's kaleidoscopic Piano Concerto with soloist Tom Borrow.

Presented by Ian Skelly, live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Harrison Birtwistle: Sonance Severance 2000
Maurice Ravel: Piano Concerto in G major
Iannis Xenakis: Jonchaies

Interval: Gillian Moore joins Ian Skelly to look ahead to the week's forthcoming highlights at the BBC Proms.

20.35
Igor Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

Tom Borrow (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Martyn Brabbins (conductor)

Iannis Xenakis contemplated reeds in the wind; Stravinsky pictured a Russia before the dawn of civilisation. But Nature is unstoppable, and both composers unleashed forces beyond the imagination: riotous, explosive masterpieces from opposite ends of the 20th century, using supersized orchestras to redefine the limits of music itself. In Xenakis’s centenary year, Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra reap the whirlwind that grew from Stravinsky’s storm. Ravel’s gorgeous, jazz-influenced Piano Concerto appears like an oasis of calm before Jonchaies and The Rite of Spring – though with the ‘astonishing’ (according to Bachtrack) BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Tom Borrow as soloist, it should be every bit as gripping. And to begin a summons by the late, much missed Harrison Birtwistle.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0019knj)
Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)

Finding his Voice

Monteverdi’s prodigious musical talent leads him from Cremona to Mantua.

Claudio Monteverdi is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the development of Western music. As a composer of both secular and sacred music, over the course of his career he worked for court, church and was one of the key figures in the development of opera. During this week of programmes, Donald Macleod tracks Monteverdi’s career across three cities, from promising child prodigy, through poverty and plague, to his final years in the priesthood, with huge artistic successes along the way.

In Monday’s programme, Donald examines the early signs of Monteverdi’s unusual musical talent, which took him from provincial Cremona to the Italian city of Mantua, where he was appointed as musician to the prestigious Gonzaga court.

Proms at Bristol: Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien

Live at the BBC Proms: Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien perform romantic showpieces for violin and piano, including music by Franck, Ysaÿe and Havergal Brian.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, live from St. George's Bristol.

Havergal Brian: Legend
Eugène Ysaÿe: Poème élégiaque
César Franck: Violin Sonata in A major

Alina Ibragimova, violin
Cédric Tiberghien, piano

‘Both of these players have the potential to conquer the world,’ wrote The Times soon after violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cédric Tiberghien – then both BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists – first played together in 2007. 15 years on, they’re being described as ‘today’s partnership of choice for violin and piano repertory’ and this lunchtime concert from the elegant surroundings of St George’s Bristol shows why. From the brooding passion of Ysaÿe’s Poème to the high drama and soaring melodies of César Franck’s much-loved Sonata – as well as an anniversary tribute to British maverick Havergal Brian, who died 50 years ago – this is a concert that demands emotional commitment and fearless virtuosity. Ibragimova and Tiberghien will supply them in abundance.

MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (m000pvbs)
The Fake Poet

250 years ago, the brilliant but impoverished Thomas Chatterton died in his cold, bare garret, alone. The image of the tragic and neglected young genius, doomed by his art, has rippled through the centuries. Sophie Coulombeau discovers that the myths built up around this tortured poet are as enticing and complex as the poems he is accused of faking.

Chatterton ended his brief life at 17 years of age. But his story catapulted around the world and was captured in poetry, novels, operas and paintings. There was Chatterton merch with postcards and handkerchiefs; he captivated the Romantics and the Pre-Raphaelites, shaped the work of myriad writers and musicians from Oscar Wilde to Keith Jarrett, Samuel Wesley to Serge Gainsbourg and his invented poet monk Rowley is hailed as an inspiration for literary duplicity even today.

Telling Chatterton's story through five works he inspired, New Generation Thinker Sophie Coulombeau pins down the man and the myth, exploring how each generation has passed the baton and reinvented the poet for their own age.

Producer: Sarah Bowen

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features London-based fashion designer Duro Olowu. Duro chooses the 1941 painting 'Children' by William H Johnson from MoMA's collection. Johnson depicted scenes of everyday African American life in Harlem and in the south - but what will a modern fashion-conscious eye spot in the work?

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0019l1w)
Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)

Poverty in the swamps

Donald Macleod explores the reality of Monteverdi’s life at the Gonzaga court in Mantua.

Claudio Monteverdi is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the development of Western music. As a composer of both secular and sacred music, over the course of his career he worked for court, church and was one of the key figures in the development of opera. During this week of programmes, Donald Macleod tracks Monteverdi’s career across three cities, from promising child prodigy, through poverty and plague, to his final years in the priesthood, with huge artistic successes along the way.

In Tuesday’s programme, Donald explores the harsh realities of Monteverdi’s life at the Gonzaga court in Mantua, with experiences of war which would have a profound impact on the composer for the rest of his life, unpaid wages which lead to large debts, and a hedonistic, immoral and dangerously unpredictable boss in Duke Vincenzo Gonzaga. But it was also a time of great breakthroughs in Monteverdi’s musical style, though he had to contend with criticism for his musical “irregularities”.

Prom 24: Ryan Bancroft conducts Mahler’s Fourth Symphony

Live at the BBC Proms: BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Ryan Bancroft perform Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto with Clara-Jumi Kang and Mahler's Fourth Symphony with Miah Persson.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Caroline Shaw: Entr’acte
Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto in E minor, Op 64

8.05pm
Mahler: Symphony No 4 in G major

Clara-Jumi Kang (violin)
Miah Persson (soprano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Ryan Bancroft (conductor)

Mahler pictured his Fourth Symphony unfolding under skies that ‘shine eternally blue’ – and from the sleighbells with which it opens to its final, childlike vision of heaven, it is outwardly the happiest symphony he ever wrote. But he knew that life is more complicated than that, and in a Prom that begins with Caroline Shaw’s contemporary take on the music of the 18th century, and stars the ‘compelling’ Clara-Jumi Kang in Mendelssohn’s bittersweet Violin Concerto, there’s always something more, hidden just below the surface. Soprano Miah Persson makes Mahler’s vision shine, and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales shows the full scope of its blossoming relationship with Principal Conductor Ryan Bancroft.


WED 22:00 Sunday Feature (m000y5vp)
Great Scott

Sir Walter Scott was a literary superstar of the 19th century. He dominated the cultural landscape first as a poet, then pioneered the historical novel. Best-selling works such as Waverley, Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, and Lady of the Lake, inspired hundreds of musical and dramatic adaptations. He rebranded the Highlands, orchestrated the King's Jaunt to Edinburgh, and kick-started the Scottish tourist industry.

But today he is widely credited with inventing the Romanticised shortbread biscuit tin view of Scotland. Is that a fair assessment?

Allan Little examines why Scott fell so dramatically out of public favour. Why from the 20th century, writers began to denigrate his work as prolix, dull twaddle. Poet Edwin Muir declared him and Robert Burns "Sham Bards of A Sham Nation" Accused of being the man who undermined Scotland's modernity by popularising a bogus mythologised version of Scotland, it's a vision that Scottish writers, playwrights, and artists have since fought hard to dispel.

We visit the ruins of Melrose Abbey and Scott's eccentric Baronial house in the Borders to meet curator Kirsty Archer-Thompson and author of Scott-land Stuart Kelly. Allan also speaks to historian Sir Tom Devine; writers Andrew O'Hagan, Rosemary Hill and Sara Sheridan; Scott enthousiast Rory Stewart; and critic Joyce McMillan, to uncover why in the early 19th century Scott felt compelled to re-imagine Scotland's history and landscape, and promote a Tartan-clad image of the nation. A closer look at Scott's novels and journals reveals a more complex, witty and surprisingly down-to-earth figure.

Today's edition features Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features Hisham Matar , the American-born British-Libyan writer whose memoir of the search for his father, The Return, won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Biography. He has chosen a photograph by Hungarian–French photographer Brassaï, which is biographic in its own way, featuring a man sleeping by the River Seine, taken in 1932. What inspiration will the award-winning novelist take from this image?

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0019l8q)
Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643)

La Serenissima

Donald Macleod follows Monteverdi to a new city, and a new chapter in his life.

Claudio Monteverdi is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the development of Western music. As a composer of both secular and sacred music, over the course of his career he worked for court, church and was one of the key figures in the development of opera. Across this week of programmes, Donald Macleod tracks Monteverdi’s career across three cities, from promising child prodigy, through poverty and plague, to his final years in the priesthood, with huge artistic successes along the way.

In Thursday’s programme, Donald finds Monteverdi newly arrived in Venice, and discovering new challenges including trying to rejuvenate the city's largest musical ensemble. He also has to contend with accusations of treason, and a terrifying encounter with highway robbers. Rather surprisingly, we also find him renewing his ties with the Mantuan court.

Prom 25: Shostakovich's Last Symphony and a Concerto for Theremin

Live at the BBC Proms: the BBC Philharmonic and John Storgards in music by Shostakovich, Kalevi Aho and Kaija Saariaho.

Presented by Tom McKinney, live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Kalevi Aho: Eight Seasons (Concerto for Theremin and Chamber Orchestra)

8.05 Interval: Following the London premier of Kalevi Aho’s work The Eight Seasons, which is inspired by the way Finland’s native Sami people divide up the year, in the interval Tom McKinney will be joined by Kenneth Steven, a poet and nature writer who has immersed himself in the world of the Sami.

Kaija Saariaho: Vista
Dmitry Shostakovich: Symphony No.15

Carolina Eyck (theremin)
BBC Philharmonic
John Storgards (conductor)

Imagine pulling music out of thin air. Two living Finnish masters do just that today: Kaija Saariaho felt that ‘new music was flowing into my mind’ as she drove by night along the coast of California. Kalevi Aho, meanwhile, turned to the eight seasons of Lapland’s Sámi culture in his extraordinary concerto for the theremin. ‘The soloist is like a magician, a weaver of spells,’ he says – ‘producing music without touching the instrument at all.’ Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15 inhabits a much darker world, but there’ll be mystery too, as well as humour, when John Storgårds conducts the enigmatic final symphony of one of the 20th century’s supreme musical chroniclers.


THU 22:15 Between the Ears (m0000n7r)
Miss Birdie's Letter

Poet Karen McCarthy Woolf follows the trail of a letter sent to her Jamaican grandmother by her Church, commending her on 67 years of faithful service. The trip takes her back to her father’s village, and to 1918, when her grandmother sets off for downtown Kingston from the poor country parish of St Catherine, a district that is now under a state of emergency as part of a government crackdown on gang violence. What would life have been like for a rural migrant at the end of the First World War? And how does that compare to today?

THU 23:00 Great String Quartets at Edinburgh (m0019m7f)
Quatuor Mosaïques

Pioneers of the period instrument string quartet, the Quatuor Mosaïques, appeared at the Queen's Hall in 1999 as part of the Festival's rich chamber music series. The concert begins with an early work by the teenage Mozart dating from his visit to Milan, followed by the final quartets ever written by Beethoven and Mozart respectively.

Written a year before his death, Beethoven's quartet K.135 is surprisingly bright and congenial but with the subtlety of great experience and Mozart's F major quartet features a prominent cello part dedicated to the cello-playing King Frederick William II of Prussia.

The Very Reverend Claudio Monteverdi

Monteverdi enters the priesthood and plague comes to Venice.

Claudio Monteverdi is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in the development of Western music. As a composer of both secular and sacred music, over the course of his career he worked for court, church and was one of the key figures in the development of opera. During this week of programmes, Donald Macleod tracks Monteverdi’s career across three cities, from promising child prodigy, through poverty and plague, to his final years in the priesthood, with huge artistic successes along the way.

In Friday’s programme, Donald explores a traumatic period as plague sweeps through Venice and brings the city to a standstill. We also see Monteverdi entering the priesthood, and the composer returns to opera, before a final six-month-long celebrity tour.

His keenly awaited Second Symphony takes its cue from old photographs of Prague: a city dear to conductor Semyon Bychkov, and to the exiled Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů, whose exuberant double concerto falls into the hands of sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque. As for Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances – well, it’s been described as a secret ballet score, a concerto for orchestra and a symphony by any other name. But every note glows with the sorrow of exile, and the undimmed energy of a composer whose inspiration burned fiercer than ever in this last, bittersweet masterpiece.

Unmouthed

What happens to a creative mind when it has everything taken away?

Many writers and composers are eccentric, some might even be labelled ‘mad’. But that generally is not a bar to having their voice heard. Once an artist is certified insane however, the way in which their work is viewed changes forever. And their ability to share their creativity is taken from them in the most extreme way society offers.

Ivor Gurney, outrageously gifted composer and poet, lost everything when mental health problems saw him committed to an asylum after the First World War. A composer who had been considered one of the best of his generation would remain behind closed doors until his death.

Ivor Gurney was tricked into being certified, when a magistrate and two doctors were invited incognito to his house, and waited, reading the newspaper, for him to incriminate himself. They were about to leave, finding nothing odd about him, but just at the last minute, he approached the magistrate to ask if he might borrow a revolver with which to shoot himself. That one question set the course for the rest of his life. Being suicidal was enough to ensure incarceration in an asylum, and Gurney was never again a free man.

He had few visitors, and interest in his music and poems ebbed away.

But on a scrap of paper, hidden away in a box in an archive, you can see Gurney talking about music scores in his mental hospital room – he calls them ‘poor unmouthed creatures’.

For 15 years, Gurney continued to write – hundreds of beautiful, moving, compelling and troubling works - which disappeared, unheard and unpublished.
In this programme, writer and broadcaster Dr Kate Kennedy travels to the asylum for the first time, seeing the buildings where Gurney spent his years and traces his journey inside. She gains access to Gurney’s archives - discovering a treasure trove of lost compositions and poems. Words and music about the Gloucestershire landscape Gurney would never again see; about his mental state; about thoughts of suicide; about the devastating effects of war.

Together with poet Andrew Motion and musicologist Stephen Johnson, Kate Kennedy explores the lost works of Gurney. And we hear previously unheard songs which tenor Nicky Spence and pianist Dylan Perez rehearse and perform especially for the programme.

Through examining his manuscripts, we find Gurney being deprived of a pen, the tool of his trade. He was obliged to compose his poetry and music in pencil – a pen nib could be used to slash wrists. We chart his many attempts (some successful) to escape from the institutions that confined him. On one occasion he managed to get as far as Vaughan Williams’s house, who was faced with the impossible situation of having to hand his own pupil over to the police.

Through conversations with asylum employees, we learn that Vaughan Williams and Arthur Benjamin actually regularly visited Gurney in the asylum to play through his latest compositions, all of which have been neglected since. We find one asylum doctor, Dr Anderson, who cared, and tried to help him (and interview his son), and others who undertook horrendous experiments on him, injecting him with malaria. In Gurney’s medical notes, he is found to be two stone lighter, and ‘on his knees, praying for death.’

The programme ends with his death from near-starvation and tuberculosis, alone and forgotten over Christmas of 1937.

FRI 22:45 The Way I See It (m000bxh1)
Richard Serra on Jackson Pollock

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features the choice of heavyweight sculptor of steel, Richard Serra. He chooses Jackson Pollock’s "One: Number 31, 1950" - but why choose this work, and how does it inform his own?
