SAT 11:45 New Generation Artists (m0019xhc)
Summer Showcase (5/8)

New Generation Artists Summer Showcase: Kate Molleson continues her summer series celebrating the talents of the current members of Radio 3's prestigious young artists' programme. Today, Eric Lu is heard playing Schumann's wistful Arabesque at the Wigmore Hall last month and mezzo, Ema Nikolovska and collaborative pianist, Kunal Lahiry combine Haydn with Cecile Chaminade in a recital at Snape. And they also join recent members of the scheme, the Quatuor Van Kuijk for Chausson's Chanson perpétuelle. The composer's final work brought this March weekend residency at Snape to a memorable end.

Chaminade: La lune paresseuse
Haydn: The Wanderer
Chaminade: Ronde d’amour
Haydn: Mermaid Song
Chaminade: Espoir: ne dis pas que l’espoir
Ema Nikolovska (mezzo-soprano), Kunal Lahiry (piano)

Rob Luft: Endless summer
Rob Luft Quintet and the Amika String Quartet

Established over two decades ago, Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme is internationally acknowledged as the foremost scheme of its kind. It exists to offer a platform for artists at the beginning of their international careers. Each year six musicians join the scheme for two years, during which time they appear at the UK's major music festivals, enjoy dates with the BBC orchestras and have the opportunity to record in the BBC studios. The artists are also encouraged to form artistic partnerships with one another and to explore a wide range of repertoire, not least the work of contemporary and women composers. In recent years Radio 3's New Generation Artists have appeared at many of the UK's music festivals and concert halls. The BBC New Generation Artists scheme is not itself a prize, rather it offers a unique platform on which artists can develop their prodigious talents. Not surprisingly, the list of alumni reads like a Who’s Who of the most exciting musicians of the past two decades.


SAT 12:30 This Classical Life (m0019xhf)
Jess Gillam with... Sam Amidon

Jess's guest this week is folk artist Sam Amidon. His songs reimagine and breathe new life into old songs and ballads, but his musical life also encompasses any number of collaborations with classical composers, experimental producers as well as the jazz world which he finds so inspiring.

Sam and Jess settle in for a listening party of the music they love, including Ornette Coleman and friends having a street party, Ennio Morricone in full blown cinematic mode, Sam shares a revelatory recording by the Georgian voices in The Rustavi Choir and Jess continues her bid to be reincarnated in the 1960s with a Dusty Springfield classic.

Playlist:

TRAD GEORGIAN: Shen Khar venakhi – Kartli Kakhetia (The Rustavi Choir)
MORRICONE: Cinema Paradiso – Theme
ORNETTE COLEMAN: Friends and Neighbours (Vocal version) [Live]
PROKOFIEV: Romeo and Juliet – Dance of the Knights (Cleveland Orchestra, Lorin Maazel (conductor))

DUSTY SPRINGFIELD: Anyone Who Had a Heart


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0019xhh)
Baritone Roderick Williams rifles through some favourite records

Baritone Roderick Williams takes inspiration both from his parents' record collection and from composers who absorbed and reworked music from other times.

Roderick’s playlist effortlessly moves from symphonies by Schubert and Mahler to vocal music by Francis Potts and a certain Roderick Williams, as well as revelling in the sounds of The Modern Jazz Quartet and music written by Michael Giacchino for the film Batman. There’s also storytelling by Prokofiev and Britten and a piece of musical defiance by Michael Tippett.

And if you’ve ever had reservations about classical crossover, Benjamin Luxon singing the music of Herman Hupfeld might very well convince you to think again…

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

With the release of a new film inspired by the art of wine tasting and the true story of a Zimbabwean team of professional sommeliers, 'Blind Ambition', Matthew considers film and film music under the wider context of the connoisseur. Who are the great on-screen arbiters of merit and taste? And he talks to the Australian composer Helena Czajka, about her score for 'Blind Ambition'.

The programme includes music from Sideways, Bottle Shock, The Monuments Men, The Thomas Crown Affair, The Best Offer, The Leopard, Goldfinger, Phantom Thread, La La Land, Like Water For Chocolate, and Blind Ambition.

SAT 17:00 J to Z (m0010x1p)
Chelsea Carmichael in concert

Kevin Le Gendre presents concert highlights from saxophonist Chelsea Carmichael recorded on the J to Z Presents stage at the London Jazz Festival 2021.

Chelsea Carmichael has made a name as a key player in the UK jazz community, both as a member of the Mercury-nominated SEED Ensemble and now in her own right with the release of her debut album, The River Doesn’t Like Strangers, on Shabaka Hutchings’ new label, Native Rebel Recordings. Here Chelsea is joined by guitarist Nikos Ziarkas for the first ever live performance of the album.

Also in the programme, creative guitarist-vocalist Monnette Sudler shares some of the music that inspires her. In the 1970s Sudler was a member of the pioneering Philadelphia-based jazz collective Sounds of Liberation. She went on to work with Hugh Masekela, Grover Washington, Kenny Barron and many more. Her album In My Own Way was rescued from the vaults and released on SteepleChase Records last year.

Prom 36: Marin Alsop conducts the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra (Part 1)

Live at the BBC Proms: Marin Alsop conducts the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and Benjamin Grosvenor in Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No 3 and Dvořák's Symphony No 7.

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

PART 1
Béla Bartók: The Miraculous Mandarin – suite
Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No 3 in C major

c. 20:25 INTERVAL: Chain Reaction (3/6)
Georgia Mann and Tom Service take us on another unpredictable musical journey as they explore Chain Reaction, connecting the last piece in the first half of this Prom to the first piece after the interval - it's quite a refreshing interval G&T with Georgia and Tom!

c. 20:45 PART 2
Hannah Eisendle: Heliosis (UK premiere)
Dvořák: Symphony No 7 in D minor

Benjamin Grosvenor (piano)
Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra
Marin Alsop (conductor)

Viennese orchestral playing is a byword for excellence, rooted in generations of tradition. But under its distinguished (and adventurous) American Music Director Marin Alsop, the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra takes that tradition as a starting point to look outwards – to explore. Bartók’s blood-curdling ballet suite prepares the way for Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto: energising, unsentimental brilliance, brought to life by former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Benjamin Grosvenor. And then, two very different facets of the Central European tradition: the windswept drama and dancing Bohemian melodies of Dvořák’s magnificent Seventh Symphony, and the UK premiere of Heliosis – written specially for Alsop and the Vienna RSO by a young Viennese composer with a flair for drama.

Roberto Gerhard studied with Schoenberg, and fled Spain after the Civil War, to live in England, where he composed a substantial body of work, including symphonies, ballet and opera. Leo was one of his last works, written the year before he died in 1970, and it's a richly realised and colourful piece in the modernist style that he developed. He dedicated the piece to his wife, whose star sign was Leo.



SUNDAY 14 AUGUST 2022

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m0019xhx)
Haunted Textures

Corey Mwamba presents the best in new improvised music.

Damon Smith and Sarah Ruth Alexandra pay homage to the late bassist Ben Patterson with a special duo set inspired by a 1961 performance. A celebrated experimentalist, Patterson was one of the founders of the radical Fluxus movement.

Mexican group Cataratas del Niágara - featuring double bassist and improviser, Adriana Camacho - create an evocative world of mysterious field recordings and distortion charged by electronics.

Elsewhere in the programme, a skronking, squalling collaboration from Dirk Serries, Cath Roberts and Tullis Rennie. Together they play with texture and space to beguiling effect.

Sarah Walker with an engrossing musical mix

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

Today, Sarah gets lost in the magic of Palestrina’s flowing vocal lines, and readies herself for a relaxed summer afternoon with an arrangement of Gershwin’s Summertime for solo guitar.

She also finds refreshing coolness in a piano sonata by Clementi, and theatrical declamation in a motet by Rosa Giacinta Badalla.

Plus, we head to Germany for a holiday with the Elgars…

Prom 37: Haydn, Vaughan Williams, Kaija Saariaho and Beethoven

Live at the BBC Proms: Dinis Sousa and the Royal Northern Sinfonia, featuring sunlit masterworks by Haydn, Saariaho and Beethoven.

Presented by Linton Stephens, live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Haydn: Symphony No. 6 in D major, ‘Le matin’
Vaughan Williams: Oboe Concerto
Kaija Saariaho: Vers toi qui es si loin (London premiere)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4 in B flat major

Nicholas Daniel, oboe
Maria Włoszczowska, violin
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Dinis Sousa, conductor

From sunrise to high noon: this matinee concert from the Tyneside-based Royal Northern Sinfonia under its Principal Conductor Dinis Sousa begins with the sun rising over Haydn’s joyous early symphony. It ends with Beethoven cutting loose in sheer, unbuckled glee, in the rollercoaster finale of his brightest symphony. In between, the skies just gets brighter and more beautiful, as oboist Nicholas Daniel takes the solo spot in Vaughan Williams’s playful, pastoral Oboe Concerto – another anniversary salute to this great British master. Then violinist Maria Maria Włoszczowska is the soloist in Kaija Saariaho’s ravishing Vers toi qui es si loin – a wordless love song, adapted from the acclaimed opera L’amour de loin by one of today’s true sonic magicians.

Proms at Battersea: Leif Ove Andsnes – Mozart Momentum 3

From the BBC Proms: Leif Ove Andsnes and three Mahler Chamber Orchestra members play Mozart Piano Trio in B flat major and Piano Quartet in E flat major.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny, from Battersea Arts Centre, London.

Mozart:
Piano Trio in B flat major
Piano Quartet in E flat major

Leif Ove Andsnes (piano)
Matthew Truscott (violin)
Joel Hunter (viola)
Frank-Michael Guthmann (cello)

The music of friends: for pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, performing with the musicians of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra is first and foremost about ‘partnership, a companionship’. Together, they’ve explored the music of Beethoven; now they turn to Mozart and in this lunchtime recital at Battersea Arts Centre they pare it down to basics – Andsnes, three MCO players and some of the loveliest chamber music ever created: the Piano Trio, K502, and the warm-hearted Piano Quartet, K493. This is music that Mozart conceived to be played at home, intimate without being inhibited, and playful without being flashy. Just inspiration, wit and melodies that speak straight to the heart.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08qtdts)
What's the Point of the Conductor?

The Listening Service had a question from a listener:

"When I see the musicians playing, they seem to be looking at their sheet music, not the conductor. Can an orchestra not function perfectly well without a conductor? If I'm intensely moved by a piece of orchestral music, is it not the musicians which moved me? Why must I applaud some arbitrary conductor, who never touched a single instrument throughout the entire performance?"

Tom Service rises to the challenge and looks at the role of the conductor - is it all about their ego, their clothes, their ability to beat time or their emotional outpouring onstage - or it is something else entirely? Rethink music with The Listening Service.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000v7yz)
Coming of Age

Josh O'Connor and Lydia Wilson with readings inspired by youthful experiences. Fresh from his role as Romeo for the National Theatre – a classic ‘coming of age’ story – The Crown’s Josh O'Connor reads Shakespeare, James Joyce and Harry Potter. Lydia Wilson, star of the thriller Requiem, offers contemporary fiction from Naoise Dolan and Emma Cline, along with Dickens’ bildungsroman David Copperfield, and a poem by Libby Russell, a past winner of the Foyle Young Poets Award run by the Poetry Society. Ted Hughes recites his own translation of Ovid in archive audio and Tez Ilyas reads from his Secret Diary of a British Muslim Aged 13 ¾.

The music includes Stravinsky's adolescent girls dancing the Rite of Spring, a Marian hymn from Palestrina, and Ravel's mythical young lovers, Daphnis et Chloé. Herbie Hancock, Rebecca Clarke and Felix Mendelssohn come of age as composers, while Patrick Doyle's film music shows Prince Hal turn into noble Henry V. The programme closes with Richard Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier: the Marschallin bids farewell to her lost youth, and wishes her lover happiness with his new young bride.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000pm8v)
The Myth and Mystery of Anja Thauer

Anja Thauer was a young German cellist on the brink of stardom in the 1960s. She won the Grand Prix at the Paris Conservatoire, signed with Deutsche Grammophon, released two critically acclaimed albums, and toured internationally. And then, a tragic end: she took her own life in 1973, aged 28, after starting an affair with a married doctor in Wiesbaden. Five days later, he took his own life.

Thauer remains a cult figure among collectors of rare records, who will sometimes pay four-figure sums for original copies of her LPs. But her story has never been properly told. Why not? In this Sunday Feature, music journalist Phil Hebblethwaite discovers that her position in music history may have been intentionally obscured by her mother – a former violin virtuoso – who exerted complete control over her daughter’s career, and subsequently her legacy.

And was Thauer’s career also overshadowed by the success of Jacqueline du Pré at a time when classical music perhaps wasn’t ready for two female star cellists? Their stories have uncanny similarities. They were the same age, studied together at the Paris Conservatoire, and their careers both ended in 1973 – when Thauer died and du Pré was diagnosed with MS.

The documentary starts in a charity shop in west London, with Hebblethwaite finding a copy of a Thauer’s recording of the Dvořák Cello Concerto. We meet critics who have spent years trying to find out more about Thauer and hear from those who knew and worked by her, including the conductors Zdeněk Mácal and Neville Dilkes, and the pianist Claude Françaix. And we head to Germany too, to research Thauer’s mother Ruth, and to try and understand the complicated relationship she had with her gifted daughter.

*Since making this programme, the cellist Anna Shuttleworth, who took Anja’s place in the 1973 English Sinfonia tour, died in March 2021 aged 93.

Prom 38: Tchaikovsky, Missy Mazzoli and Prokofiev

Live at the BBC Proms: Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Santtu-Matias Rouvali with volinist Jennifer Koh perform Tchaikovsky, Missy Mazzoli and Prokofiev.

Presented by Martin Handley, live from the Albert Hall, London.

Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake (suite)
Missy Mazzoli: Violin Concerto (Procession)

8.15 pm
INTERVAL: Poet Hannah Lowe, whose collection of sonnets The Kids won the Costa Book Award for Poetry in 2021, joins Martin Handley before the performance of excerpts from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet to explore how poets from Shakespeare to the present day have written about love.

Prokofiev: Romeo and Juliet (excerpts)

Jennifer Koh (violin)
Philharmonia Orchestra
Santtu-Matias Rouvali (conductor)

Enchantment, potions, and deep emotions suddenly transforming into passionate music. And it’s not just the star-crossed lovers of Prokofiev’s great Shakespearean ballet score. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is a story of love blossoming under the shadow of a dark magic. Missy Mazzoli’s new Violin Concerto, ‘Procession’, meanwhile, casts the soloist (in the composer’s words) ‘as a soothsayer, sorcerer, healer and pied piper’, playing music that begins with medieval charms and ends by reaching for the sky. It’s played tonight by its dedicatee Jennifer Koh, with the Philharmonia Orchestra conducted by Santtu Matias-Rouvali, at the end of his first (critically acclaimed) season as Music Director.

Hannah French offers listeners a chance to hear at greater length the recordings reviewed and discussed in yesterday’s Record Review. Tonight she presents a special all-Handel programme, featuring more from her favourite recordings of his music as revealed yesterday morning.


SUN 23:00 Free the Music with Pekka Kuusisto (m0012qpg)
The Wood or the Trees?

Pekka Kuusisto is a solo violinist, conductor, composer and folk musician who can change the way people think about music.

In this three-part series he muses on how much creative freedom a musician really has, and the complex relationship between improvisation and ‘sticking to the plan’. How is a performance dictated by time, place, tradition, learned techniques and mindset? And how can we open the door to wider musical freedom in the future, for performers, composers and listeners?

Pekka illustrates his thoughts with a wide selection of music, ranging from Purcell and Paganini to Mahler, Miles Davis and the White Stripes, and he also gets his violin out to create some on the spot improvisations.

In this second episode Pekka explores and questions the significance of repetition in music. He applauds the violinist Thomas Zehetmair, who turns Paganini’s 24 Caprices from exercises into mini Italian operas. He also admires Björk’s ability to mask and magnify repetition by making it sophisticated enough to withstand hundreds of listens. And Pekka invites us to join him in a musical tasting party, sampling multiple recordings of Schubert’s Winterreise made by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.

The Opus 77 quartets were written in Haydn’s late sixties and sum up his particular style and mastery of a form that he'd shaped for decades. Two works by student composers follow; Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s lushly romantic character sketches written during his studies at the Royal College of Music in London and Ravel’s lyrical String Quartet dedicated to his teacher, Gabriel Faure.

Proms at Cardiff: Ligeti, Nielsen and Stravinsky

Live at the BBC Proms: Carion Wind Quintet play Nielsen's brilliant Quintet for Wind together with works by Ligeti and Stravinsky.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny, live from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.

György Ligeti: Bagatelles 12'
Carl Nielsen: Wind Quintet 27'
Igor Stravinsky, arr. David M.A.P. Palmquist: Suite no 2 6'

Carion Wind Quintet

‘These young players are just the best there is,’ says Sir James Galway. No chairs, no music stands, playing from memory, and with every performance exuberantly choreographed, the five members of Carion Wind Quintet make all their performances fresh and unique. In this lunchtime concert at Cardiff's Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, their programme centres around Nielsen's Wind Quintet, a mesmerising kaleidoscope of colours that's deservedly become a cornerstone of wind repertory. There are some ingenious games courtesy of György Ligeti to begin with; an arrangement by their horn player David Palmquist of Stravinsky's Suite no 2 which exploits the contrasting characters of the wind instruments provides a sparkling finale.

Your daily classical soundtrack

The threatening majesty of Rachmaninov’s Prelude in C sharp minor leads to an epic struggle with fate for Beethoven. Stravinsky’s elephantine Circus Polka pushes the boundaries and Nina Simone joins the struggle to be free. Suddenly, love makes an entrance with Khachaturian, and we move from sensuous sublimity to the cheeky panache of Leroy Anderson, topped off with a whizzing Beethoven variation, which brings tonight’s cocktail of classics to a conclusion.

Sakari Oramo (conductor)

A muffled drum, a quiet march … and the melody for which a nation had been waiting. From first hesitant notes to heaven-storming conclusion, Elgar’s First Symphony is more than just a landmark in British music: it’s the autobiography of a creative spirit, passionate, troubled and profoundly moving. BBC Symphony Orchestra Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo has loved the music of Elgar for decades, and it’s a thrilling contrast to the playfulness and poetry of Vaughan Williams’s Tuba Concerto, played by rising international brass star Constantin Hartwig. Meanwhile, what’s a composer to do when he’s invited to the Tokyo Olympics during a global travel ban? Mark-Anthony Turnage lets his music do the globetrotting in his jazz-inspired Time Flies.

Decameron Nights

I'm alright, Jack

I’m alright, Jack - a trio of folk tales about looking out for number one. Part of 1927’s Decameron Nights; lesser-known folk tales from innovative theatre company 1927.

The Italian writer Boccaccio wrote The Decameron in the aftermath of the 14th-century plague. He borrowed plots from existing folk tales, stories that had survived through plagues and wars, tales that have outlived the greatest storytellers, but that hailed from the imaginations of ordinary men and women. In The Decameron a group of people tell tales to pass the time, as they shelter outside Florence, to escape the bubonic plague that rages in the city. 1927’s latest theatre show also borrowed from this primordial soup of storytelling. When touring of their show stopped due to Covid-19, they turned the show into an aural experience. Three episodes of Telling tales to pass the time…

TUE 13:00 Composer of the Week (m000sxzh)
Ruth Gipps (1921-1999)

A Sussex Childhood

Donald Macleod explores the life of English composer Ruth Gipps. A celebrated child pianist, her career as a composer began at age eight, when she won a prize for her piano piece The Fairy Shoemaker.

Ruth Gipps was born in Bexhill-on-Sea in 1921. Her Swiss-born mother was an accomplished pianist and, recognising her daughter’s aptitude, taught her piano from an early age. Gipps was four years old when she gave her first public performance, at Grotrian Hall in London. It was from that moment on, she said later, that she knew without a shadow of a doubt, that playing the piano was her job and that she wanted to be a composer.

A highly gifted and versatile musician, on 25th March 1945, Gipps took part in a public concert as the soloist in Glazunov’s Piano Concerto before rejoining the woodwind section of the City of Birmingham Orchestra as an oboist for the premiere of her first symphony. Four more symphonies were to follow. But a troublesome injury to her hand, which she had sustained in childhood, brought her career as a concert pianist to an end in the 1950s. By this stage she had achieved some notable successes as a composer. The recipient of several composition prizes, an early high point was the selection of her orchestral work “Knight in Armour” by Sir Henry Wood for the Last Night of the Proms broadcast in 1942.

Awarded a doctorate in music in 1947, Gipps held teaching posts at London’s Trinity College of Music, the Royal College of Music and Kingston Polytechnic and did terms as Chair of both the Composers’ Guild and the newly founded British Music Information Centre. There’s little doubt though that Gipps faced considerable gender discrimination in several of the fields in which she excelled. On discovering her enjoyment of conducting, she overcame this by founding two orchestras, the London Repertoire Orchestra in 1955, and then the Chanticleer Orchestra.

A composition pupil of Vaughan Williams, Gipps defined her music as, “a follow-on from her teacher, Bliss and Walton, the three giants of British music since the Second World War.” While all these composers can be heard in her music, her music has its own distinctive and original qualities.

Publicly outspoken, Gipps remained firmly anti-modernist. She regarded 12-tone music, serial music, electronic music and avant-garde music as utter rubbish. From the late 1950s the musical establishment felt her music was out of step with the times, and they bypassed her work. She did have some admirers, including Sir Arthur Bliss, whom she had first met in 1942, who continued to support and admire her music but in general it fell to her own resourcefulness to get her music heard, arranging performances, which she would then conduct with her own orchestras.

Across the week Donald Macleod is joined by Victoria Rowe, the keeper of Gipps’ archive and her daughter-in-law. Together they build a picture of Gipps as a child performer, a young student, an educator, a conductor and a composer. The series features specially recorded material from the BBC’s performing groups, including Gipps’ second, and fourth symphonies.

By the time she was ten, Ruth Gipps was a seasoned concert pianist, with six years' experience under her belt. Music includes her piano concerto, which she dedicated to her mother, and a complete performance of her quintet, written for the unusual combination of oboe, clarinet, violin, viola and cello.

INTERVAL: In the BBC’s centenary year, Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough takes a closer look at another cultural landmark from 1922 - Robert Flaherty’s ground-breaking documentary film Nanook of the North. Film historian Roswitha Skare and journalist Luke Dormehl explain why this study of life in the Arctic has proved to be both controversial and influential.

Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5 in B flat major

Peter Moore, trombone
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko, conductor

Moscow, 1945: when Sergey Prokofiev stepped up to conduct the premiere of his Fifth Symphony, he was interrupted by the sound of an artillery barrage. Forged in a time of war and tyranny, Prokofiev said that the symphony embodied ‘the greatness of the human spirit’, and for the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s Music Director, Vasily Petrenko, it’s one of the supreme 20th-century masterpieces. Tonight, he sets it in a strikingly original context – alongside the primary colours and all-American optimism of Copland’s Appalachian Spring, and the bold, swinging postwar rhythms of George Walker’s Trombone Concerto. Peter Moore (‘magical’ – The Times) is the soloist in this striking contribution to our season-long focus on instruments that don’t always get their due.

Decameron Nights

Heartstrings

Heartstrings - a threesome of folk tales about love. Part of Decameron Nights; lesser-known folk tales from innovative theatre company 1927.

The Italian writer Boccaccio wrote The Decameron in the aftermath of the 14th-century plague. He borrowed plots from existing folk tales, stories that had survived through plagues and wars, tales that have outlived the greatest storytellers, but that hailed from the imaginations of ordinary men and women. In The Decameron a group of people tell tales to pass the time, as they shelter outside Florence, to escape the bubonic plague that rages in the city. 1927’s latest theatre show also borrowed from this primordial soup of storytelling. When touring of their show stopped due to Covid-19, they turned the show into an aural experience. Three episodes of unfamiliar and often bizarre tales. Telling tales to pass the time…

Golda Schultz and Jonathan Ware

South African soprano Golda Schultz makes a welcome return to the Edinburgh International Festival, this time with her regular recital partner, Jonathan Ware.

Having performed lieder together that was written solely by men about women, they have set about skillfully crafting a recital that speaks of a woman's world and experience but from the perspective and pen of female composers. Schultz presents 'This Be Her Verse', as a thoughtful programme of songs that range from Clara Schumann, Emilie Mayer and Nadia Boulanger through to a specially commissioned song cycle by fellow South African, Kathleen Tagg, that lends its title to this concert.

WED 13:00 Composer of the Week (m000sxbk)
Ruth Gipps (1921-1999)

The Young Student

Donald Macleod follows Ruth Gipps' progress as she begins a period of study at the Royal College of Music in London, with music including her early orchestral works Knight in Armour and the fantasy for viola and string orchestra, Jane Grey.

Ruth Gipps was born in Bexhill-on-Sea in 1921. Her Swiss-born mother was an accomplished pianist and, recognising her daughter’s aptitude, taught her piano from an early age. Gipps was four years old when she gave her first public performance, at Grotrian Hall in London. It was from that moment on, she said later, that she knew without a shadow of a doubt, that playing the piano was her job and that she wanted to be a composer.

A highly gifted and versatile musician, on 25th March 1945, Gipps took part in a public concert as the soloist in Glazunov’s Piano Concerto before rejoining the woodwind section of the City of Birmingham Orchestra as an oboist for the premiere of her first symphony. Four more symphonies were to follow. But a troublesome injury to her hand, which she had sustained in childhood, brought her career as a concert pianist to an end in the 1950s. By this stage she had achieved some notable successes as a composer. The recipient of several composition prizes, an early high point was the selection of her orchestral work “Knight in Armour” by Sir Henry Wood for the Last Night of the Proms broadcast in 1942.

Awarded a doctorate in music in 1947, Gipps held teaching posts at London’s Trinity College of Music, the Royal College of Music and Kingston Polytechnic and did terms as Chair of both the Composers’ Guild and the newly founded British Music Information Centre. There’s little doubt though that Gipps faced considerable gender discrimination in several of the fields in which she excelled. On discovering her enjoyment of conducting, she overcame this by founding two orchestras, the London Repertoire Orchestra in 1955, and then the Chanticleer Orchestra.

A composition pupil of Vaughan Williams, Gipps defined her music as, “a follow-on from her teacher, Bliss and Walton, the three giants of British music since the Second World War.” While all these composers can be heard in her music, her music has its own distinctive and original qualities.

Publicly outspoken, Gipps remained firmly anti-modernist. She regarded 12-tone music, serial music, electronic music and avant-garde music as utter rubbish. From the late 1950s the musical establishment felt her music was out of step with the times, and they bypassed her work. She did have some admirers, including Sir Arthur Bliss, whom she had first met in 1942, who continued to support and admire her music but in general it fell to her own resourcefulness to get her music heard, arranging performances, which she would then conduct with her own orchestras.

Across the week Donald Macleod is joined by Victoria Rowe, the keeper of Gipps’ archive and her daughter-in-law. Together they build a picture of Gipps as a child performer, a young student, an educator, a conductor and a composer. The series features specially recorded material from the BBC’s performing groups, including Gipps’ second, and fourth symphonies.

"Consistent and cheerful overwork" was how Ruth Gipps summarised the five and a half years she spent at the Royal College. Despite a few bust-ups, including an especially fiery one with the principal, Gipps won her compositional wings, and made some close friends, among them her future husband, clarinettist Robert Baker.

Prom 41: Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto with Behzod Abduraimov

Live at the BBC Proms: BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Thomas Dausgaard perform music by Nielsen; and Behzod Abduraimov joins for Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1.

Presented by Martin Handley, live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Ravel: La valse
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1

8.20 Interval: Daniel Grimley talks to Martin Handley about the music of Nielsen.

Behzod Abduraimov (piano)
Elizabeth Watts (soprano)
Benjamin Appl (baritone)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard (conductor)

‘Sizzling’ was how The Guardian described the playing of pianist Behzod Abduraimov. For The Arts Desk, meanwhile, he’s a ‘rare and enchanting musician’: the ideal performer, in other words, for a masterwork as witty, as joyful and as impulsive as Beethoven’s sunlit First Piano Concerto. That’s the burst of light and joy at the heart of this concert from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under its Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard, but there’s no letting up after the interval, as Dausgaard conducts a symphony he’s made his own: Nielsen’s ebullient Sinfonia espansiva. Ravel’s La valse sets things spinning: a sumptuous, sinister evocation of an era – and a culture – waltzing ever closer to the abyss.

During the 1980s and 1990s, DJ Andy Kershaw travelled around Africa and the Americas searching out great music and taping it on his Walkman Pro, a new broadcast-quality cassette recorder that was bringing about a revolution in mobile recording. He also used it to capture his celebrated Kitchen Sessions, held in his small flat in Crouch End.

In this episode, Andy meets Kenyan harpist Ayub Ogada on a beach in Cornwall, the Antioch Gospel group in a car park in New Orleans, Cuarteto Iglesias on a roof top in Cuba and a young Ballake Sissoko next to the railway tracks in Bamako, Mali. On his very first day recording with his Walkman Pro, Andy visits the Edale Bluegrass Festival then travels to Leeds to record a rare performance from guitarist Mark Knopfler in a pub with his early group The Duolian String Pickers. Back in Andy’s kitchen Louisiana comes to Crouch End with sessions from blues man Lazy Lester and Cajun stars DL Menard, Eddie LeJeune and Ken Smith. Plus we pay another visit to Wilkinson's HiFi in Nelson to find out just why the compact cassette format is so enduring and well loved.

THU 13:00 Composer of the Week (m000sytk)
Ruth Gipps (1921-1999)

The Conductor

Donald Macleod considers the types of obstacles Ruth Gipps encountered in her professional capacities as an educator and as a conductor, with music from her Fourth Symphony and her Horn Concerto.

Ruth Gipps was born in Bexhill-on-Sea in 1921. Her Swiss-born mother was an accomplished pianist and, recognising her daughter’s aptitude, taught her piano from an early age. Gipps was four years old when she gave her first public performance, at Grotrian Hall in London. It was from that moment on, she said later, that she knew without a shadow of a doubt, that playing the piano was her job and that she wanted to be a composer.

A highly gifted and versatile musician, on 25th March 1945, Gipps took part in a public concert as the soloist in Glazunov’s Piano Concerto before rejoining the woodwind section of the City of Birmingham Orchestra as an oboist for the premiere of her first symphony. Four more symphonies were to follow. But a troublesome injury to her hand, which she had sustained in childhood, brought her career as a concert pianist to an end in the 1950s. By this stage she had achieved some notable successes as a composer. The recipient of several composition prizes, an early high point was the selection of her orchestral work “Knight in Armour” by Sir Henry Wood for the Last Night of the Proms broadcast in 1942.

Awarded a doctorate in music in 1947, Gipps held teaching posts at London’s Trinity College of Music, the Royal College of Music and Kingston Polytechnic and did terms as Chair of both the Composers’ Guild and the newly founded British Music Information Centre. There’s little doubt though that Gipps faced considerable gender discrimination in several of the fields in which she excelled. On discovering her enjoyment of conducting, she overcame this by founding two orchestras, the London Repertoire Orchestra in 1955, and then the Chanticleer Orchestra.

A composition pupil of Vaughan Williams, Gipps defined her music as, “a follow-on from her teacher, Bliss and Walton, the three giants of British music since the Second World War.” While all these composers can be heard in her music, her music has its own distinctive and original qualities.

Publicly outspoken, Gipps remained firmly anti-modernist. She regarded 12-tone music, serial music, electronic music and avant-garde music as utter rubbish. From the late 1950s the musical establishment felt her music was out of step with the times, and they bypassed her work. She did have some admirers, including Sir Arthur Bliss, whom she had first met in 1942, who continued to support and admire her music but in general it fell to her own resourcefulness to get her music heard, arranging performances, which she would then conduct with her own orchestras.

Across the week Donald Macleod is joined by Victoria Rowe, the keeper of Gipps’ archive and her daughter-in-law. Together they build a picture of Gipps as a child performer, a young student, an educator, a conductor and a composer. The series features specially recorded material from the BBC’s performing groups, including Gipps’ second, and fourth symphonies.

In 1957 Ruth Gipps made her professional debut as a conductor at the Royal Festival Hall in London. As her profile developed, she became more involved in the organisation of British orchestras. Her views ruffled quite a few feathers, but Gipps stood her ground.

Nielsen: Symphony No. 4, ‘The Inextinguishable’

Francesco Piemontesi (piano)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard (conductor)

‘Music is life – and like it, inextinguishable.’ Two giants of the symphony take the 20th century head-on, with shattering results. Sibelius seems to concentrate all the forces of air, earth and water in a Seventh Symphony that feels like it could have been wrought from the elements themselves. Nielsen confronted the brutality of the First World War in music that absolutely refuses to lie down and die – crowned by a life-or-death duel for two sets of drums. An epic evening from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under its Danish-born Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard: Beethoven’s lyrical Fourth Piano Concerto will form the eye of the storm, with Francesco Piemontesi (‘tremendous’: The Times) as soloist.

Even more Kershaw Tapes

During the 1980s and 1990s, DJ Andy Kershaw travelled around Africa and the Americas searching out great music and taping it on his Walkman Pro, a new broadcast-quality cassette recorder that was bringing about a revolution in mobile recording. He also used it to capture his celebrated Kitchen Sessions, held in his small flat in Crouch End.

In this episode, Andy meets Malian blues man Ali Farka Touré on a boat on the Niger and wins a bottle of BBQ sauce at Fred’s Lounge in Louisiana whilst enjoying some live cajun music from the Mamou Cajun Band. We witness the breakneck speed of Scottish accordionist Phil Cunningham and banjo player Gary Petersen in an impromptu session in a pub in Shetland and we take a look at the iconic Cuban song Guantanamera, with versions by Cuarteto Iglesias on a roof top in Cuba and Celina Gonzales in Andy’s Crouch End kitchen. Also from the kitchen we have vintage sessions from Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and English psychedelics, Robyn Hitchcock & The Egyptians. Plus Andy dusts off the Walkman Pro to records a brand new session with folk singer-songwriter and guitarist Steve Tilston.

2022 Queen's Hall Series

Florian Boesch and Malcolm Martineau

Schubert's lonely tale of lost love against the backdrop of a winter walk is without doubt one of his finest works. A critic of the time wrote 'none can sing or hear without being deeply moved.' The song cycle of 24 songs traces the journey by a broken-hearted young man whose love has deserted him, the wintry scenes of nature around him reflecting his sadness, defiance and resignation as he reaches a cemetery and finally encounters a hurdy-gurdy player in the street playing whose enigmatic drone paints a picture of complete desolation.

FRI 13:00 Composer of the Week (m000szy4)
Ruth Gipps (1921-1999)

A Voice for British Music

Donald Macleod considers Ruth Gipps' contribution to education and to British music in general, with music from her Fourth Symphony and Wind Sinfonietta.

Ruth Gipps was born in Bexhill-on-Sea in 1921. Her Swiss-born mother was an accomplished pianist and, recognising her daughter’s aptitude, taught her piano from an early age. Gipps was four years old when she gave her first public performance, at Grotrian Hall in London. It was from that moment on, she said later, that she knew without a shadow of a doubt, that playing the piano was her job and that she wanted to be a composer.

A highly gifted and versatile musician, on 25th March 1945, Gipps took part in a public concert as the soloist in Glazunov’s Piano Concerto before rejoining the woodwind section of the City of Birmingham Orchestra as an oboist for the premiere of her first symphony. Four more symphonies were to follow. But a troublesome injury to her hand, which she had sustained in childhood, brought her career as a concert pianist to an end in the 1950s. By this stage she had achieved some notable successes as a composer. The recipient of several composition prizes, an early high point was the selection of her orchestral work “Knight in Armour” by Sir Henry Wood for the Last Night of the Proms broadcast in 1942.

Awarded a doctorate in music in 1947, Gipps held teaching posts at London’s Trinity College of Music, the Royal College of Music and Kingston Polytechnic and did terms as Chair of both the Composers’ Guild and the newly founded British Music Information Centre. There’s little doubt though that Gipps faced considerable gender discrimination in several of the fields in which she excelled. On discovering her enjoyment of conducting, she overcame this by founding two orchestras, the London Repertoire Orchestra in 1955, and then the Chanticleer Orchestra.

A composition pupil of Vaughan Williams, Gipps defined her music as, “a follow-on from her teacher, Bliss and Walton, the three giants of British music since the Second World War.” While all these composers can be heard in her music, her music has its own distinctive and original qualities.

Publicly outspoken, Gipps remained firmly anti-modernist. She regarded 12-tone music, serial music, electronic music and avant-garde music as utter rubbish. From the late 1950s the musical establishment felt her music was out of step with the times, and they bypassed her work. She did have some admirers, including Sir Arthur Bliss, whom she had first met in 1942, who continued to support and admire her music but in general it fell to her own resourcefulness to get her music heard, arranging performances, which she would then conduct with her own orchestras.

Across the week Donald Macleod is joined by Victoria Rowe, the keeper of Gipps’ archive and her daughter-in-law. Together they build a picture of Gipps as a child performer, a young student, an educator, a conductor and a composer. The series features specially recorded material from the BBC’s performing groups, including Gipps’ second, and fourth symphonies.

While she wanted to be regarded as a "composer" irrespective of gender, Ruth Gipps became an influential voice in promoting women musicians, creating opportunities for them and supporting their activities within the music profession.

Live at the BBC Proms: the BBC Singers and The English Concert with conductor Sofi Jeannin perform Handel's Solomon with a stunning cast of soloists including Iestyn Davies as Solomon.

Presented by Hannah French live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Handel: Solomon
19.00 Act I

20:00 Interval: Suzanne Aspden talks to Hannah French about Handel's Solomon.

‘Thy harmony's divine, great king
All, all obey the artist's string.
And now, illustrious prince, receive
Such tribute as my realm can give.’

A musician as monarch: what could be more perfect? Handel’s Solomon (1749) is a celebration of a nation (and a genius) at the height of its confidence, and with its libretto by Moses Mendes, this lavish oratorio is the gloriously tuneful product of a diverse and fast-changing society. Iestyn Davies – arguably Britain’s finest living counter-tenor – lavishes all his eloquence and dramatic power on the title-role, as the period instruments of The English Concert, and the BBC Singers under their Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin, bring Handel’s vision to majestic life.


FRI 22:30 Between the Ears (m000kh8m)
The Vet at the End of the World

Angry bulls, furious penguins, enraged seals! In the shadow of the volcano 'Between the Ears' gets a microphone close up to enjoy the action, as veterinarian Jonathan Hollins, gives us a taste of life with the remote animals and sea life of Tristan Da Cunha.

On an island of a population of around 250 people, a thousand sheep and many more penguins, Joe also gets a flavour of what happened to the islanders when the volcano last erupted and they were forced to leave their homes, sixty years ago. Cracks in the ground were opening and closing - one sheep fell in! Boats took them to a nearby penguin colony where they sheltered until rescued. Sent to live in the UK, all chose to return to Tristan as soon as it was declared safe by an expeditionary force sent out by The Royal Society.

The island was just as they had left it, the settlement miraculously spared, though all the sheep mysteriously disappeared... there are theories as to why!

Memories of the volcano are mixed with Joe's daily life - the domestic close up sounds of cows birthing, bulls hoisted onto land from bucking fishing vessels and gong clanging to bring the islanders together.

The atmosphere is punctuated by updated versions of traditional sea shanties - performed by the likes of Lou Reed, Anthony, Beth Orton, Rufus Wainwright, Richard Thomson and Tim Robbins.

This rocky outcrop was claimed by the Dutch, the British, the Portuguese, and even an American Privateer, geographically useful to all in its splendid isolation, (even in the 20th century the islanders only heard about the ‘result’ of the First World War a year after it finished). Today, we might envy their close community and isolation in a world endangered by today’s globalisation.

Joe was lucky to get permission to record during his time there, by the island council, scarred by their previous experiences with the ‘press’, most particularly during that 18 months living as refugees in the UK.

From the most remote community in the world – Tristan Da Cunha - the sounds, songs and tales of a whole island committed to socially isolating – together.

With grateful thanks to the people of Tristan Da Cunha.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall

Archive: The Royal Society Volcanic Eruption on Tristan da Cunha, 1961

Music: as sourced by Danny Webb from 'Rogue’s Gallery' - a series of sea shanties and pirate songs.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0015cz6)
After Dark Festival

Join the Late Junction team in Newcastle at the After Dark Festival, as Verity Sharp and Jennifer Lucy Allan bring you a selection of highlights from our stage at the Star & Shadow in collaboration with Tusk.

The After Dark festival, from BBC Radio 3 and Sage Gateshead, is a celebration of alternative music taking place over the weekend of the Spring Equinox and shining a light on creativity in the North East. We bring you highlights from Friday night at the Star & Shadow, a special line-up curated by Late Junction and Tusk Music featuring Iceboy Violet, Nyati Mayi & The Astral Synth Transmitters and Yeah You. Plus from Saturday night, Jennifer Lucy Allan speaks to the legendary folk singer-songwriter Vashti Bunyan about her new memoir.

Iceboy Violet is a Manchester-based producer, vocalist and DJ. A key player in the experimental scene in Manchester, their sound combines dark brooding electronics with a powerfully raw vocal delivery. Inspired by the energy and resistance of Grime music, their lyrics are honest and vulnerable, warping the genre in a way that aims to challenge toxic masculinity and heteronormativity.

Nyati Mayi & The Astral Synth Transmitters is the project of Belgo-Congolese multi-instrumentalist and singer Nyati Mayi, and Brussels DJ, producer and musician soFa elsewhere. Rooted in improvisation and free music, their sound is heavily percussive and vocal led, with influences including 90s hip-hop, folk, Congolese rhythms and dub.

Yeah You are Newcastle father-daughter duo of Elvin Brandhi and Gustav Thomas. Inspired by everything from noise pop to black metal, the pair have been improvising and recording together since Brandhi was a teenager. Their work is almost entirely improvised and spontaneous, with Brandhi letting loose stream-of-consciousness vocals over distorted rhythms and warped electronics.

Produced by Katie Callin and Rebecca Gaskell.
