Natasha Loges chooses five essential recordings of BBC Proms Composer Beethoven and explains why you need to hear them.

The titan of classical music, Beethoven is the quintessential Romantic genius. In the popular imagination, he is the tortured artist, confronting his deafness and loneliness with a series of heroic, life-enhancing masterpieces. Beethoven developed and expanded what music could do in terms of power and expression. He developed the forms of orchestral, chamber and vocal music to new limits.

Summer Showcase (8/8)

New Generation Artists Summer Showcase: Kate Molleson presents the last programme in her summer series celebrating the prodigious talent of the current members of Radio 3's young artist programme. Today Alexander Gadjiev, a multiple prize winner at last year's Warsaw Chopin Competition, explores the Romantic sonorities of the Pleyel piano which Chopin brought with him to England in 1848. Also today, viola player Timothy Ridout plays Stravinsky's suite based on his ballet Pulcinella, a work populated by the figures of the commedia dell'arte, in a performance given at the Aldeburgh Festival. And to end this summer series, a traditional Italian love song to be sung under the balcony of the sleeping beauty.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m001bl24)
Violinist Elena Urioste pays attention to what’s going on in the background

Violinist Elena Urioste shares pieces that have shaped not only her violin playing but also her appreciation of music. Her choices range from Debussy in the hands of the Punch Brothers to vocal lines that, for her, embody the beauty of sound that she thinks all string players should strive for. Chamber music features too, with pieces by Beethoven and Coleridge-Taylor.

She also points out how important it often is to hear what’s going on in the background of a piece as she unearths accompaniments that remind her of the most delicious mulled wine!

Plus, Elena shares performances and anecdotes from some of her mentors.

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

Prom 62: Berliner Philharmoniker and Kirill Petrenko – Mahler’s Seventh Symphony

Live from the BBC Proms: the Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Kirill Petrenko, play Mahler's Symphony No. 7.

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

Mahler: Symphony No. 7 in E minor

Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
Kirill Petrenko (conductor)

Some would call the Berliner Philharmoniker the finest orchestra in the world, but one thing’s for certain: whenever it visits the Proms under its Chief Conductor Kirill Petrenko, it’s always a night to remember. In the first of two concerts in the 2022 BBC Proms, the orchestra performs just one work: the symphony that Mahler called his ‘song of the night’. Every Mahler symphony is an emotional journey; but this one sweeps from an overcast Alpine lake through love songs, nightmares and nocturnal marches to an ear-splitting finish along with jangling cowbells and laced with pitch-black humour. Expect grandeur, beauty and piercing insight from one of the 21st century’s most acclaimed musical partnerships.

Marius Neset (saxophones)
Ivo Neame (piano)
Jim Hart (vibraphone/marimba/percussion)

London Sinfonietta
Geoffrey Paterson (conductor)

Geyser: forces from the core of the Earth heat water to boiling point, and then blast it high into the Northern sky in an unstoppable eruption of steam, spray and sound. Born in Bergen, Norway, saxophonist and composer Marius Neset knows all about the power of nature. And with influences as varied as Frank Zappa, Pat Metheny, Gustav Mahler and Olivier Messiaen, he knows all about the energy that results when elemental creative forces collide, too. In his Proms debut, a young virtuoso who’s been praised for his ‘voracious reinvention of jazz’ runs his own quintet, full-speed, into London’s crack new-music ensemble the London Sinfonietta.


SUN 00:00 Freeness (m001bl2l)
Percussion storm

Corey Mwamba presents the best in improvised music.

UK trio Alan Wilkinson, Alex Ward and Jem Doulton conjure up an apocalyptic punk storm complete with lightning-rod guitar riffs, thunderous drums and the unrelenting hail of a blowing horn. Plus, new music from Eddie Wakili Hick (of Sons of Kemet fame) and his forthcoming debut release as a band leader. His group, the NOK Cultural Ensemble, celebrates diverse percussive styles from across the African diaspora. With inflections of propulsive dub and devotional music, the band take inspiration from the ancient Nigerian NOK civilisation.

Elsewhere in the programme, Corey plays a track in tribute to the late cellist Abdul Wadud. A distinguished voice as an improviser, he was a creative force in experimental and classical music scenes, playing with the likes of George Lewis and Arthur Blythe.

She also heads to the old kingdom of Bactria with composer Jean Philippe Rameau, and into the streets of ancient Venice with Giovanni Gabrieli.

Plus, Germaine Tailleferre’s ‘fugue of the umbrella’ reminds Sarah of Renoir’s famous painting…

Prom 64: Sir András Schiff plays Beethoven Piano Sonatas

Live at the BBC Proms: Sir András Schiff plays Beethoven's final three piano sonatas, works of Olympian virtuosity and transcendent, spiritual beauty.

Presented by Katie Derham, live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 30 in E major, Op. 109
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 31 in A flat major, Op. 110
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111

Sir András Schiff piano

Beethoven’s piano sonatas, says Sir András Schiff, ‘have lost none of their relevance and freshness’. In Schiff’s hands, every new encounter with these great but deeply human works – the so-called ‘New Testament’ of the piano repertoire – reveals new depths of character and meaning. According to The Guardian, his interpretations of the late sonatas, in particular, ‘sweep all before them’, and that’s what he’ll be playing today: Beethoven’s final trilogy of sonatas, music of wild imagination, profound tenderness and sudden, piercing beauty.

SUN 13:00 BBC Proms (m001bcsk)
Proms at Birmingham

Mezzo-soprano Claire Barnett-Jones and pianist Simon Lepper play music by Joseph Horovitz, Ethel Smyth, Rebecca Clarke, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Errollyn Wallen.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny, from Birmingham's Bradshaw Hall.

Joseph Horovitz: Lady Macbeth – a scena
Ethel Smyth: Lieder, Op. 4
Rebecca Clarke: The Seal Man
Ralph Vaughan Williams: Four Last Songs
Errollyn Wallen: Lady Super Spy Adventurer

The sheer wealth and beauty of English poetry has been a continual inspiration to British composers. Since winning the Joan Sutherland Audience Prize at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2021 mezzo-soprano Claire Barnett-Jones has become one of the most sought-after voices on both the operatic stage and the concert platform – with one critic writing that she ‘stole the stage at every movement’ in English National Opera’s recent The Cunning Little Vixen. Today, with pianist Simon Lepper, she celebrates the songs of 2022 Proms featured composers Vaughan Williams and Ethel Smyth, brings all her theatrical flair to a Shakespeare sketch by the late Joseph Horovitz, and sings something entirely new from Proms favourite Errollyn Wallen.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m000hvn8)
Music in 18th-century Portugal (2/2)

The second of two programmes exploring the music of 18th-century Portugal. In this second programme, we explore in particular the church music that flowered at court and in ecclesiastical establishments.

Marcos Magalhães, director of the ensemble Os Músicos do Tejo, is our guide and he continues his tour of the city, from the neo-classical Basílica da Estrela and the modern-day Praça do Comércio, near which the old royal palace was located, before its destruction in the earthquake of 175, to the glorious Baroque-style Palácio Nacional da Ajuda, a royal residence that was only completed in the late 19th century.

The 18th century saw the Portuguese court consciously try to rediscover the grandness of their 15th- and 16th-century predecessors during the so-called ‘Age of Discoveries’, when the Portuguese first established their overseas empire. With it came a musical heritage that was both inspired by those of Italy and France, but also sought to bring Portuguese talent to the fore.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000dj3x)
Beethoven Unleashed: Getting to grips with Beethoven

Beethoven: deaf for most of his life, unbearable egotist, flagrant opportunist and musical anarchist whose music reaches the heights of ecstasy. Where do you start with this bundle of contradictions, probably the most admired composer in western music, whose works have unfailingly filled concert halls for over 200 years? Tom Service goes in search of what makes Beethoven Beethoven and suggests a few key pieces to help unlock the man and his music.

David Papp (producer)

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m001bl5g)
All Fingers and Thumbs

Fingers and thumbs define us – they can signify our identity and family heritage. One of the first things a baby does is suck its thumb, until Struwwelpeter’s great tall tailor comes to cut it clean off.

Sylvia Plath contemplates her bleeding thumb stump, while Ted Hughes remembers her fingers leaping and somersaulting across the keyboard. There are magic fingers, hitchhiking thumbs, spin bowling experts and light-fingered thieves, with readings from Roald Dahl, Sarah Waters, Ian McEwan and Lorna Goodson – brought to life by Clare Perkins and Sean Barrett.

Musically, dextrous fingers predominate as players – from Martha Argerich to Anoushka Shankar – ply them with great skill. The piano, harp, drums and the thumb piano, the mbira are all on show with works from Rachmaninov, Sally Beamish and Thomas Ades.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000v7z3)
Riding the Waves

Literary style, the novelist Virginia Woolf wrote, is “all rhythm … Now, this is very profound, what rhythm is, and goes far, far deeper than words.”

Woolf's musically 'modernist' novel, The Waves, was first publsihed in 1931. This Sunday Feature evokes a sense of what Woolf meant by literature's "allegiance" to music and how the rhythm of her writing might carry the reader beyond the word towards "the thing that lies beneath the semblance of the thing".

The novelist Amy Sackville, watching the sea from a Kent beach, meditates on Woolf's interest in 'rhythm over narrative'; the musician Steve Harley recalls the precise moment this most beloved novel inspired his song Riding the Waves; the dramaturg Uzma Hameed traces the translation of Woolf's language from the page to the stage in Wayne McGregor's acclaimed ballet Woolf Works; the pianist Lana Bode (of the Virginia Woolf & Music project) reflects on the musicality of Woolf's language and the composer Jeremy Thurlow reveals both how Woolf was inspired by music, by Bach and Beethoven, and how her work has inspired his own music.

Max Richter: Three Worlds, music from Woolf Works: The Waves
Beethoven: String Quartet No.13 in B flat, Op. 130 (Alban Berg Quartett)
Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel: Riding the Waves

Prom 65: Berliner Philharmoniker plays Schnittke and Bruckner

The Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Daniel Harding, play Schnittke's Viola Concerto, with Tabea Zimmermann as soloist, and Bruckner's Symphony No 4, 'Romantic'.

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

Schnittke: Viola Concerto

20:10: Interval: Tasmin Little joins Martin Handley to look ahead to the week's forthcoming highlights at the BBC Proms.

Bruckner Symphony No. 4, ‘Romantic’

Tabea Zimmermann, viola
Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
Daniel Harding, conductor

In their second and final concert at the 2022 BBC Proms, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Daniel Harding play Bruckner's Symphony No. 4, ‘Romantic’. First, they support Tabea Zimmermann – whose playing is, in the words of The Strad, of ‘breathtaking beauty’ – as she rediscovers a Cold War classic: the intense melancholy and sardonic humour of the Viola Concerto, written in 1985 by the Russian dissident composer Alfred Schnittke. It couldn’t find more committed champions.

SUN 22:00 Record Review Extra (m001bl5l)
Natasha Loges's Beethoven

Hannah French offers listeners a chance to hear at greater length the recordings reviewed and discussed in yesterday’s Record Review, featuring more from reviewer Natasha Loges's favourite Beethoven recordings.

SUN 23:00 The Voice of the Vibraphone (m001bl5n)
To reach all the notes

Corey Mwamba delves into the many colours of an underappreciated instrument.

The percussive nature and motor-driven vibrato of the vibraphone have led to a perception that it can only produce a homogeneous sound. Vibes player Corey Mwamba passionately dismantles this and encourages us to listen more closely.

In this first episode, Corey explores different ways in which the vibraphone has been played like a piano. We hear how the four-mallet, chordal approach, often attributed to Gary Burton in the 1960s, can in fact be traced back to the earliest vibraphone recordings of the 1920s. We follow the changes in jazz piano language through stride and bebop, and how these were translated onto the vibraphone by the likes of Red Norvo, Terry Pollard and Walt Dickerson. And we listen to the impact of electronic processes on the more recent keyboard-styled approaches of Mike Mainieri and Sasha Berliner.

Donald Macleod explores the work of Franz Schubert, focusing on five distinct phases in the composer’s life. And afterlife.

We start in 1815, the year in which Schubert turned 18 and was a reluctant schoolmaster still living under his father’s roof. Although he was in many ways unhappy and constrained by his circumstances, he was still prodigiously prolific.

Dausgaard conducts Nielsen's Inextinguishable

Thomas Dausgaard conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Sibelius and Nielsen, and they are joined by Jan Lisiecki for Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto,

‘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 Jan Lisiecki as soloist.

Sibelius: Symphony No. 7

The autographed manuscript of this grandest of the set turned up by chance when it was extracted from a plastic bag and shown to the conductor and scholar Christopher Hogwood after a concert in Melbourne having been brought to Australia by a British colonel who had bought it in London before emigrating.

Karina Canellakis (conductor)

Imagine if silence had a sound. That’s what the young Gustav Mahler tried to evoke in the massive stillness that opens his First Symphony – a whole world emerging into life, and a young artist walking out to find triumph, tragedy and (of course) love. But youth is a state of mind: expect surprises (and sounds) like you’ve never heard when the revered Franco-American composer Betsy Jolas riffs on the 21st-century listening culture of playlists and downloads in her inventive new concerto for pianist Nicolas Hodges. Karina Canellakis (hailed by The Times for her ‘freshly minted’ interpretations) conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra – and few living conductors are better equipped to channel fire from the gods in Beethoven’s Olympian overture.

MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (m00041b0)
The Actors' Guide to the Emotions

Shahidha Bari hosts an evening of live drama and conversation from the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead, tracing the changing portrayal of emotions on stage.

When 'the first modern actor' David Garrick stepped on stage in 1741, people were stunned by his realistic emotions. But hasn't simulating strong feelings been the essence of theatre from the first Greek tragedies? What has changed since the earliest performances?
The actors Sandy Grierson, Charlie Hardwick and Jackie Edwards are joined on stage by theatre director Lorne Campbell and Professor Jen Harvie to perform and discuss the long history of emotion on stage, the public's changing tastes and the ways that actors prepare themselves to perform 'emotionally' from the days of Chekhov to The Last Ship, the singer and musician Sting's musical about the death of the shipbuilding industry.

Franz Schubert (1797-1828)


Donald Macleod explores the work of Franz Schubert, focusing on five distinct phases in the composer’s life. And afterlife.

In the years after 1820, we see him spreading his wings as he’d never been able to do before, enjoying a sense of liberation after being shackled to the schoolroom in his father’s house.

Ethel Smyth's Mass in D

Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in works by Debussy and Smyth.

Ethel Smyth wasn’t especially religious: the text and images of the Catholic Mass simply thrilled her. ‘What words! What words!’ she exclaimed, and her monumental Mass in D major is one of the crowning glories of the British choral tradition. Following their widely admired 2019 recording (‘fiercely committed, highly persuasive’ – BBC Music Magazine) Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra give the first Proms performance since the composer’s own lifetime, with rising operatic star Nardus Williams heading an impressive quartet of soloists. Debussy’s Nocturnes begin the evening in a very different, but no less beautiful world – blurring the edges of sound itself to create music that seems to glow in the dark.

Wynton Marsalis: Violin Concerto

8.30 pm
INTERVAL: Created in a natural landscape feature, a conclave hillside, the Hollywood Bowl had already hosted religious services before its stage arrived. In 1922 the Los Angeles Philharmonic played its first season of open air concerts inaugurating a music venue. Lisa Mullen hears how the amphitheatre has hosted some of the greats of classical and popular music from Felix and Leonard Slatkin to Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles and James Taylor. Michael Goldfarb and Mark Glancy discuss the emergence of a cultural landmark.

Britten: Four Sea Interludes from ‘Peter Grimes’
Bernstein: Symphonic Dances from ‘West Side Story’

Nicola Benedetti (violin)
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Thomas Søndergård (conductor)

‘Nicola Benedetti – now, she really can play,’ says the American composer, trumpeter and all-round jazz legend Wynton Marsalis, and after Benedetti gave the world premiere of the concerto that he composed for her in 2015, The Guardian wrote of her ‘sparky performance’. Thomas Søndergård and The Royal Scottish National Orchestra gives its Proms premiere tonight: the big, generous heart of a concert with a spring in its step, that opens with Thomas Adès’s wonderfully sleazy Powder her Face suite and ends amid the headstrong urban energy of West Side Story. In between comes a blast of fresh sea air from Benjamin Britten.

TUE 22:15 Between the Ears (m000qj29)
To Bear Witness

While we, as a species, grapple with ongoing legacies of racism and violence, and as biodiversity loss and the mass extinction of wildlife on earth accelerates, the call to bear witness becomes ever more necessary. What might it mean - for ourselves and the other beings on this planet - if we were able to sorrow, if we knew how to grieve? As things disintegrate around us, is bearing witness a final act of love we can offer our world?

“Loving and grieving are joined at the hip,” says spiritual activist and author Stephen Jenkinson. “Grief is a way of loving what has slipped from view. Love is a way of grieving that which has not yet done so.”

Biologist and philosopher Andreas Weber and poet and psychologist Anita Barrows reflect on what is lost as beloved species and places of wilderness continue to vanish; reparations scholar-activist Esther Stanford-Xosei grieves the genocide of communities that were the custodians of ways of living in harmony with the earth; and activist Kofi Mawuli Klu mourns the immense beauty of forests now destroyed.

Every waking moment is a requiem - not what we signed up for. But what did you sign up for? Into what were you initiated? Lacking in ceremony and ritual, grappling with legacies of undone spirit work and ancestral trauma, bearing witness to what is happening within ourselves and around us might “not be everybody’s idea of a good time” (Stephen Jenkinson), but it might be what we need to do. It might help us to belong.

Hadelich plays Dvorak

Augustin Hadelich plays Dvorak's violin concerto and Cristian Măcelaru conducts the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne in works by Mendelssohn and Brahms.

The composers of the Romantic generation saw the world differently, and they heard it differently, too. A stormy voyage off the Scottish coast set music playing in Mendelssohn’s head: music that grew into the overture The Hebrides. Brahms launches his Third Symphony in heroic style – but brings it to a close in the most radiant of sunset glows. Dvořák, meanwhile, fused Classical forms with Czech folklore and his own deeply poetic spirit to create a violin concerto that dances as joyfully as it sings. Grammy Award-winner Augustin Hadelich is its champion tonight, as the Proms welcomes the Cologne-based WDR Symphony Orchestra and its energetic Chief Conductor Cristian Măcelaru.

Prom 69: Beethoven’s Missa solemnis

Live at the BBC Proms: John Eliot Gardiner and his Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique perform Beethoven's supreme spiritual testament, the Missa solemnis.

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

Beethoven: Missa solemnis

Ann Hallenberg (mezzo-soprano)
Giovanni Sala (tenor)
William Thomas (bass)
Monteverdi Choir
Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
Conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner

‘From the heart – may it go straight to the heart.’ Ludwig van Beethoven worked for half a decade on his Missa solemnis, and it’s infinitely more than just one of the mightiest and most ambitious Mass settings since Bach. The Missa solemnis is the supreme spiritual testament of one of the greatest creative artists who ever lived: an intimate self-portrait of a human soul, profoundly beautiful and almost unbearably moving. This performance is a labour of love for Sir John Eliot Gardiner. Few living conductors can match his experience as an interpreter of Classical and Romantic choral music, and with the period instruments of the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, Beethoven’s inspiration will glow with a special richness and warmth.

WED 22:00 Between the Ears (m000rtx8)
Sinking Feelings

Bogs have always captured the human imagination, inspiring both fear and fiction. Between the Ears wades into this treacherous netherworld in a search for the lost and found.

These liminal spaces have a unique and troubling consistency: neither absolutely water, nor absolutely earth, but a potentially dangerous mix between the two.

Writers have long been fascinated by the dangerous pull of the bog but also by the secrets that lay buried the peat, from 'The Slough of Despond' in John Bunyan's 'Pilgrim's Progress' to Seamus Heaney's 'Bog Poems'

Producer Neil McCarthy and author and former rock climber Jim Perrin attempt to cross a bog called Waun-y-Griafolen in Snowdonia. A living entity, the bog erases paths over time and the duo's navigation becomes as uncertain as the ground beneath them. As they make their way, and as the days fades, they are accompanied by the reflections of Hetta Howes ('Transformative Waters'), Karin Sanders ('Bodies in the Bog'), and artist Mark Daniels who also finds he's strayed from the path.

They squelch their way, hoping to understand the bog's contradictory nature before getting swallowed up.

Featuring the poem 'Bog Queen' by Seamus Heaney

WED 22:30 The Essay (m000qbhp)
Folk at Home

At Home with Lizabett Russo

As the year prepares to turn, Verity Sharp dials up singer-songwriters who aren’t living in their country of birth. Are they more mindful of their roots at this time of year? Has the pandemic made them feel closer or further away from home? Or is music all they need to help keep them connected?

Lizabett Russo grew up in communist Romania where learning a musical instrument was forbidden. Moving to the UK ten years ago, expressing herself in song became her lifeline. She recalls how her grandparents' traditional life led on the land made a powerful, lasting impression, and sings about the beauty of how swallows and humans build their nests alike.

Presented and produced by Verity Sharp.
