SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b00g2jlz)
150th Anniversary of the Birth of Puccini

In a special edition to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Puccini, Tom Service visits some of the locations in Tuscany that meant so much to the composer, even when he had achieved international stardom. In the company of musicologist Roger Parker, he assesses Puccini's legacy, the reception of his music a century ago and now, his complicated relationships with women and their impact on the operas, and the importance of his works in the Italian opera scene after Verdi.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b008lpvc)
Lucie Skeaping presents a programme devoted to Euripedes' great tragedy of Medea, and the setting by the French composer Charpentier. Charpentier was very much over-shadowed by his famous contemporary Lully, and it is really only in the last few decades that this opera has been rediscovered; the music is considered some of Charpentier's most magnificent and colourful, and one can only imagine the spectacle the drama created through its use of stage machinery and fireworks in the 17th century!

SUN 22:45 Words and Music (b00gkqlg)
Birdsong

Birdsong has fascinated poets and musicians for centuries. This poetry selection spans 700 years, from Dafydd ap Gwilym's 14th-century hymn to the thrush to RS Thomas's more recent celebration of the blackbird, while the music ranges almost as far, from the Renaissance lute-song The dark is my delight to a section from Einojuhani Rautavaara's atmospheric Cantus arcticus, memorably enriched by the recorded sound of migrating swans.

With a pair of 'catalogues' (opening with Izaak Walton's inventory of the 'nimble musicians of the air'), but for the greater part have chosen to concentrate on those songsters who have inspired the most frequent creative effort. Most popular among them by far is the nightingale, the thrilling musician of the woods who reduces the other birds to silence with her brilliance in Blake's Milton, sings her traditional song of lost love in Richard Barnfield's As it fell upon a day, and offers encouragement to human lovers in a ravishing air from Rameau's opera Hippolyte et Aricie. For Leslie Norris the voice of 'the poet's bird' is both pleasure and torment, a spur to the creative act and a reproach to human inadequacy.

Not far behind is the skylark, whose ebullient airborne music - for many people the sound of the British summer - is here celebrated in an anonymous 17th-century poem and in music connecting its song to the cares of lovers from the English folk tradition and by Hoagy Carmichael.

Less virtuosic but no less irresistible to artists have been the cuckoo - the two-note herald of spring humorously imitated by Saint-Saens and argued over in words by Wordsworth and Bunyan - and the owl, whose comforting and disturbing contributions to the soundscape of the winter night are evoked by Edward Thomas and in Dominick Argento's setting of lines from Love's Labour's Lost.

Other composers and poets have essayed more demanding birdsong imitations: Olivier Messiaen's intricately notated representations became a vital part of his own creative personality; Gerard Manley Hopkins ambitiously attempts a verbal characterisation of a woodlark.

Few of these skilful impressions would count for much without some wider resonance. We have seen that birdsong both marks out the seasons and reminds us of our humble place in the natural world. But above all, and as all the poets and composers represented in this programme have recognised, birdsong also touches something deep in our hearts, unstopping the streams of love, longing, memory, joy, laughter and melancholy that lie within us all.

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Suzy Klein.

James O'Donnell puts the organ of the Royal Albert Hall through its paces in one of the landmarks of 20th-century repertoire for the instrument, Messiaen's Messe de la Pentecôte, which draws musical inspiration from birdsong and concludes with a shattering depiction of pentecostal tongues of fire engulfing the Apostles. Alongside it, sacred French music for the same church feast from an earlier tradition: a Renaissance mass by Pierre de Manchicourt, a composer who, though little known today, ended his life as master of the royal chapel of Philip II of Spain and who no less a figure than Orlando Lassus called a 'distinguished and excellent composer of music'.

Elvira

Puccini's elopement with one of his pupils, Elvira Gemignani, had lasting consequences. A married woman with two children, Elvira took a brave leap when she ran off with him.

Having survived the ensuing scandal, the couple conducted their relationship in a fashion which, for most of their friends and colleagues, defied comprehension. Yet despite Puccini's frequent infidelities and her obsessive jealousy, they remained together until his death in 1924.

Presented by Geoffrey Smith, from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

A concert of 20th-century Americana featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under the baton of Kristjan Jarvi. To mark the opening of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing tonight, Jarvi launches the programme with Michael Torke's Javelin, written for the 1994 games, which is followed by John Adams's evocation of Richard Nixon's visit to China in the 1970s.

Young cellist Han-Na Chang joins the orchestra for Three Mediations from Bernstein's personal and thought-provoking theatre piece Mass, while New York finally comes to town with a jazz work by Duke Ellington.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

The Belasco Connection

With Donald Macleod. The two operas Puccini composed to plays by the American dramatist David Belasco showed him to be making real advances in orchestral techniques and the handling of characters. While these developments were largely ignored in the first of them, Madama Butterfly, the premiere of La fanciulla del West was a different story altogether.

THU 21:30 BBC Proms (b00d6xsg)
2008

Prom 63: Motets, chansons ragas, Messiaen

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Martin Handley.

A performance of Messiaen's Cinq rechants - a work which draws its inspiration from a mixture of Sanskrit texts, traditional Indian rhythms, Renaissance polyphony and ancient tales and mythology, creating a sensual, vocally virtuosic and highly charged synthesis of styles and language.

The opening sequence likewise weaves together music of the East and West. Nishat Khan joins the BBC Singers in a short sequence of French Renaissance motets and chansons - exploring the season of spring and the erotic imagery associated with it - woven around improvised classical Indian ragas, echoing the mood of Messiaen.

And Nishat Khan concludes the programme with a selection of night ragas, chosen according to the mood of the occasion.

Motets and chansons by Claudin de Sermisy, Jean Richafort, Antoine Brumel and Claude Le Jeune, interspersed with Indian ragas

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

Puccini's World

Donald Macleod explores how the beginning of the 20th century saw Puccini searching for a new dramatic direction. The world around him was changing and he was feeling distinctly out of step. On the one hand he was seen as the successor to Verdi, while on the other his detractors felt his music had no Italian character whatsoever.

Series 4

Rabbi Dr Tony Bayfield

Joan Bakewell talks to the head of Britain's Reform Jewish community, Rabbi Dr Tony Bayfield, who has devoted his life to challenging those who claim to have a monopoly on truth. He talks openly about the Holocaust survivors who taught him at theological college, the place of converts within Judaism and how his training and work as a Rabbi left him utterly unprepared for the untimely death of his wife.

Rabbi Bayfield has focused strongly on promoting Jewish-Christian-Muslim dialogue as well as criticising all forms of fundamentalism. In 2008, he spearheaded a commitment to collaborate with other branches of Judaism in an attempt to embrace diversity and pluralism and reduce in-fighting. His stance has seen him publicly oppose his friend of 40 years, Britain's Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks. Yet that friendship remains, despite the passionate theological divide.


FRI 21:15 BBC Proms (b00ct7bj)
