Prom 60: Vivier, Ravel, Prokofiev, Mussorgsky

Part 1

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Donald Macleod.

The programme begins with an exotic work composed in 1979 by the Frenchman Claude Vivier. Huge orchestral forces conjure up the immensity of the cosmos, and the piece suggests that human nature is just as vast and unfathomable.

The brilliant, mercurial pianist Martha Argerich returns to the Proms, playing Ravel's jazz-inspired concerto.

Vivier: Orion

SUN 20:15 Twenty Minutes (b00mdj28)
Pictures Re-arranged

Composer and producer Gabriel Prokofiev looks at arrangements of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

The original piano suite has been arranged hundreds of times, not just for classical orchestra but for a wide range of instruments and ensembles including accordion, double bass, brass, harpischord, heavy metal band, prog-rock band, organ, percussion and synthesiser.

Gabriel comes from a family that has a close association with the piece: his grandfather, the composer Sergei Prokofiev, regularly played the original version in his piano recitals.

Gabriel looks at the enduring appeal of Pictures at an Exhibition for the composer/arranger, and considers some of the many and varied arrangements that have been made.

SUN 21:45 Sunday Feature (b00mdj5m)
Smashing the Idols

Writer Andrew Brown explores the controversial cultural and theological legacy of Calvinism. Perhaps nobody has ever looked at death, hell, human nature and God quite so uncompromisingly as the lawyer born in Noyon in 1509, who gave his name to one of the fiercest and most influential forms of Protestantism.

John Calvin believed in a world where God controlled all, and who went to heaven and who went to hell was predestined - Christ died for only a select few. Nothing except the Bible was tolerated in church which led to Calvinism's terrible reputation as a destroyer of art.

It is argued that Calvinism influenced many aspects of our modern society - science, economics, philosophy, democracy - but such claims are considered by historians to be overblown. They instead highlight the strangely paradoxical qualities of a faith which fuelled both the religious wars of the 17th century and the enlightenment which followed.

Moving from Geneva to Scotland, and talking to historians Diarmaid MacCulloch and Bill Naphy, as well as novelists Marilynne Robinson and James Robertson, Andrew explores the sometimes unexpected legacies of this extraordinarily polarising system of belief. With works by Calvin read by John Sessions and music by Cappella Nova.


SUN 22:30 Words and Music (b007hpzq)
Russian Dreams

A journey to Russia, as imagined by poets and musicians: natives, exiles and foreigners.

Music by French composer Tournemire conjures up the bells of Moscow, while verses by Marina Tsvetaeva give a Russian literary slant on the same subject. Stravinsky depicts his homeland from the perspective of both resident and emigre, one in an unabashedly Russian vein, the other unmistakably coloured by his exposure to American jazz.

Including poems by Anna Akhmatova, Mikhail Lermontov and Osip Mandelstam, and music by Borodin, John Field and Schnittke. Readings by Andrew Sachs and Siobhan Redmond.


SUN 23:30 Jazz Line-Up (b00mdj5r)
Mark Murphy and the Frankfurt Big Band/Joe Zawinul Profile

Julian Joseph presents a European Broadcasting Union concert set from vocalist Mark Murphy and The Frankfurt Big Band, performed at Broadcasting Hall at HR Radio House, Frankfurt on March 9, 2007, with repertoire by French composer Michel le Grand.

He is also joined by author Brian Glasser to discuss the music of Joe Zawinul. Glasser's book In a Silent way: A Biography of Joe Zawinul profiles the late composer/keyboardist who was famous for his work with Miles Davis and with his progressive jazz group Weather Report.

MON 10:00 Composer of the Week (b00mdj7y)
Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)

Episode 1

The much maligned Antonio Salieri, mainly remembered today for supposedly poisoning Mozart through jealousy of the younger composer's talent, is the focus for this week's Composer of the Week. This rumour of murder has travelled over two hundred years, inspiring verse by Alexander Pushkin, an opera by Rimsky-Korsakov, to Peter Shaffer's film "Amadeus". But is it right that this once highly celebrated composer should be remembered for an unsubstantiated rumour? Salieri was at one time the most famous composer in all Europe, with the Holy Roman Emperor Joseph II as his patron. He received offers of work from the King of Sweden, and even dedicated one of his works to Marie Antoinette. He composed over forty operas, including a work premiered for the official opening in Milan of La Scala opera house. Amongst Salieri's students, which he always taught for free unless they came from wealthy backgrounds, were Beethoven, Schubert, Liszt and even Mozart's son Franz Xaver.

In the first programme, Donald Macleod looks at Salieri's formative years, including the loss of his parents early on, and the miracle when he was discovered by the composer Florian Leopold Gassmann, and taken from Venice to Vienna. We hear a specially made recording by the BBC Singers of the Missa stylo a cappella, documented as being one of Salieri's first compositions - and one which was never performed in the composer's lifetime.

Prom 61: Sibelius, Duparc, Ravel

Part 1

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Mariss Jansons conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Sibelius's Symphony No 1. Sibelius stopped composing decades before his death. However, the seven symphonies he left place him securely among the greatest symphonists of the 20th century.

MON 19:40 Twenty Minutes (b00mdjtc)
The Annual General Boiled Egg Panic

A specially-commissioned memoir from comedian and author Alexei Sayle, in celebration of bank holidays.

As the son of a train guard and union official, the Liverpool-raised Alexei has more reason than most to remember the bank holiday. It meant that the Sayle family could travel all over Europe by rail for free. But it also meant that often holidays were spent in the English seaside town that was hosting the Annual General Meeting of the National Union of Railwaymen, and the only foreign interest was provided by fraternal delegates sent from SNCF, the French railway.

Alexei recalls the cherished passes that allowed him in to all the local attractions free. He remembers the strange nature of the meetings themselves - like rock festivals 'where the stars...were balding alcoholics in ill-fitting suits, talking gibberish'. But come the annual dinner dance, they revealed themselves as sharp and fluent, masters of the jive and the waltz.

But at the age of 14, Alexei wasn't so keen on the meetings anymore, especially when the union meeting was in Southport, just a few miles from home. So he committed a daring, meaningless and highly significant act.


MON 20:00 BBC Proms (b00mdjtf)
Prom 61: Sibelius, Duparc, Ravel

Part 2

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Mariss Jansons conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in some of Duparc's finest songs. Upon his death Duparc left just 13 songs, yet each is a gem of textual subtlety and melodic inspiration; lustrous-toned Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena sings her own selection.

Ravel's pastoral ballet Daphnis et Chloe, commissioned by Diaghilev in 1909, the year he met Stravinsky, is based on an ancient erotic novel. The second suite begins with a sunrise and ends in an orgy.

MON 21:15 The Lebrecht Interview (b00mdjth)
Jonathan Miller

Norman Lebrecht talks to Jonathan Miller, a high-profile figure in British arts and intellectual circles whose work over the years has embraced medicine, satire, religion, television, theatre and opera direction.

Coming from a London Jewish background with a father who was a pychiatrist and a mother who was a writer, Miller initially went into medicine before becoming involved in the 60s satirical movement along with Peter Cook and Alan Bennett. This led to an invitation to work in television and then the theatre before he made his debut in the 70s directing opera. But Miller never left medicine behind, working on TV series like the Body in Question and Madness which reached large audiences in the UK and America.

Miller reflects on the way his career has been borne out of a series of invitations, his feelings about his Jewish upbringing, the world of opera and his atheism.


MON 22:00 Night Music (b00mj5l1)

Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)

Episode 2

In the second programme Donald Macleod surveys Salieri's beginnings as a composer in Vienna. Whilst employed as Composer for the Imperial Chamber, Salieri would have been responsible for writing suitable chamber music, and we hear the Cassazione that was likely to have been performed during royal banquets. Salieri, working with his mentor Gassmann at Vienna's opera house, was also offered the opportunity to compose an opera. Opera was to be the arena in which he made his biggest mark, and we hear two extracts from his early works Armida, and La fiera di Venezia.

It includes songs from the romantic idylls of pre-war England by Ireland, Warlock, Keel, Vaughan Williams and Quilter, opera arias and Schubert lieder, Faure miniatures, as well as folk songs of the British Isles dearest to Terfel's heart.

The programme concludes with celebrated Shostakovich interpreter Semyon Bychkov conducting the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Shostakovich's Symphony No 11. Written in 1957, the work ostensibly commemorates the failed anti-Tsarist uprising of 1905, but under the surface it rages at the Soviet authorities.

TUE 19:30 BBC Proms (b00mdk55)
Prom 62: Haydn, Shostakovich

Part 1

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Mariss Jansons and his Dutch orchestra perform Haydn's Military Symphony, composed on his second visit to London in 1794-95, at a time when England and Holland were allied with Austria against republican France.

According to an early review, the slow movement - graphically portraying 'the hellish roar of war increase to a climax of horrid sublimity' - was greeted with repeated cries of 'Encore! in which the Ladies themselves could not forbear to join.'

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra
Mariss Jansons (conductor)

Haydn Symphony No 100 in G (Military).


TUE 19:55 Twenty Minutes (b00mdk57)
Oblomov

Ivan Goncharov's novel "Oblomov" was published in 1859 and depicted, in its hero, the greatest couch-potato in literature. So appealing is Oblomov's habit of never really getting up that his name has become synonymous with a sort of fatalistic laziness. So prevalent a character trope did Oblomovism become in Russia that Lenin said that three revolutions had not been able to defeat it. Lesley Chamberlain explores the book and its legacy.

Producer Tim Dee (rpt).


TUE 20:15 BBC Proms (b00mdk59)

Part 2

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's second Prom of the 2009 season concludes with a performance of Shostakovich's Tenth, one of the composer's most popular symphonies, and a favourite of conductor Mariss Jansons. The work intertwines the composer's personal motto theme with that of a student with whom he was infatuated.

Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)

Episode 3

Donald Macleod in this third programme traces Salieri's highly successful career in the world of opera. On the recommendation of Gluck, Salieri was invited to Milan to compose L'Europa riconosciuta for the official opening of La Scala. During his tour around Italy, he also got time to compose other works, and we'll hear his Piccola Serenata written at this time. Later, Salieri was offered another notable opera commission, again on the advice of Gluck - a work for the Paris Opera. Once in Paris, he journeyed to Versailles to perform for Marie Antoinette. The programme ends with part of the final act of Les Danaides, which was dedicated to the French Queen.

Prom 63: Xenakis, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich

Part 1

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Christopher Cook.

The BBC Symphony Orchestra perform Xenakis's Nomos Gamma, with 98 players dispersed among the audience in the arena, including eight percussionists. The transience of life and the finality of death are then confronted in Rachmaninov's evocative Stygian tone poem The Isle of the Dead, composed in 1909.

WED 20:35 BBC Proms (b00mdkry)
Prom 63: Xenakis, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich

Part 2

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Christopher Cook.

The BBC Symphony Orchestra perform Xenakis's Ais, a work confronting the transience of life and the finality of death. A searing setting of ancient Greek texts by Homer and Sappho, with a wildly wide-ranging vocal line of powerful elemental utterances, it features a solo percussionist pitted against the orchestra. The concert concludes with Shostakovich's Ninth Symphony from 1945, a work that seems almost to laugh off the horrors of war.

WED 21:45 Sunday Feature (b00fmdbz)
Buying a Culture in Abu Dhabi

As a centre with vast new museums and performance spaces grows out of the dust in Abu Dhabi, Anthony Sattin investigates the attempts of the oil-rich rulers to 'buy culture'.

The ambitious project, called Sadiyaat, involves the creation from scratch of a 'culture island', created by superstar architects Frank Gehry, Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid and Jean Nouvel. It involves expertise brought in from the Guggenheim and the Louvre as well as liberal arts teaching from the Sorbonne and New York University.

But the plans have bought protests, with objections to the 'plundering' of European museums' treasures for oil money. Fears of censorship have also been raised. But is this prejudice or justified fear?

Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)

Episode 4

In the fourth episode Donald Macleod discusses Salieri's first public competition against Mozart, initiated by Joseph II. Both composers had to write a short opera in their own language, and these would be presented side by side as part of the 1786 carnival season in Vienna. Salieri's work Prima la Musica, Poi le Parole, won favour over Mozart's composition. In addition to this, there was another opportunity to travel back to Paris to compose two more works, where he collaborated with the notorious Beaumarchais. Back in Vienna, Salieri was appointed Director of Music to the Imperial Chapel. He was the most influential composer in all Europe, and with this came a change in direction from opera, to sacred music and teaching. To end the programme we hear his Twenty-six Variations on La Folia di Spagna, which could be seen as an instructive guide to orchestration for his students.

Episode 5

Donald Macleod discusses whether there is any truth in the rumour, and traces the impact Salieri had on the world of music. The Requiem composed by Salieri, has been specially recorded by the BBC Singers and BBC Concert Orchestra for this programme. It was first heard at Salieri's own funeral, where the entire musical establishment turned out to pay homage to the great man.

Part 1

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

Rising star conductor Jonathan Nott and one of the world's top youth orchestras, the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, in Ligeti's haunting Atmospheres - a work made famous by Stanley Kubrick's film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is followed by Mahler's poignant Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children), featuring baritone Matthias Goerne, and Schoenberg's ground-breaking Five Orchestral Pieces, premiered at the Proms in 1912 by Henry Wood.

FRI 20:05 BBC Proms (b00mdn88)
Proms Plus

Proms Literary Festival: Music and Philosophy in Fin de Siecle Vienna

Susan Hitch invites philosophers Roger Scruton and AC Grayling to consider how iconoclastic thought found an echo in groundbreaking music in fin de siecle Vienna and how it resonates even today.

What did Mahler owe to his study of Nietzsche? Were there many musicians who knew of and were inspired by Freud's Interpretation of Dreams when it appeared in 1899? And how did Wittgenstein respond to the music of late 19th century Vienna? The Austrian capital was a place of challenge and iconoclasm during this period and the boundaries between concert hall and study were blurring as thinkers and musicians re-evaluated the nature of human experience.


FRI 20:25 BBC Proms (b00mdn8b)
Prom 65: Ligeti, Mahler, Schoenberg, Strauss

Part 2

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

Jonathan Nott conducts one of the world's top youth orchestras, the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, in Richard Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra, a work inspired by the philosophical writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, and famously, used by Stanley Kubrick to accompany images of space in his film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

FRI 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00j4j1j)
From Ecstasy to Infinity

Mathematician Marcus du Sautoy explores the role of science and mathematics in the arts of the baroque. From Bernini's architecture and sculpture in Rome, the playful gardens at Versailles, to the grand dome of St Paul's Cathedral and the music of Monteverdi and Bach, he discovers that new ideas about perspective, capturing movement and the infinite all play a part in the baroque vision.

'The Baroque was always a style I'd associated with vulgarity and excess. But in this programme I’ve discovered how much control and structure underpins the spectacle of the baroque. The dramatic and sensational effects of the greatest baroque architects like Borromini and Bernini are founded on sound mathematical principles. Painters like Caravaggio and Rubens are battling with the same problems as Newton and Leibniz in their attempt to capture bodies in motion. And the extravagant sounds of Monteverdi and Bach would not be possible without the mathematical development of new ideas of temperament. It is my world of mathematics and science which allows the artist and musician to play with your emotions. Join me on my journey to the conversion of the delights of the baroque.' Marcus Du Sautoy


FRI 22:15 BBC Proms (b00mdn8z)
2009

Prom 66 - Nash Ensemble

From the Royal Albert Hall, London. Presented by Verity Sharp.

The Nash Ensemble and Diego Masson celebrate the 80th birthday of American composer George Crumb with three hauntingly beautiful pieces.

To mark the 40th anniversary of the first manned mission to the moon, mezzo-soprano Hilary Summers sings Night of the Four Moons, a work composed by Crumb during the Apollo 11 flight. Crumb often incorporates theatre into his work and Vox balaenae (Voice of the Whale) draws inspiration from the songs of humpback whales for which the three performers on stage are required to wear masks to efface their human presence. Soprano Claire Booth leads a septet of performers in Ancient Voices of Children, a highly expressive cycle set to verses by Federico Garcia Lorca.

Claire Booth (soprano)
Hilary Summers (mezzo-soprano)
Nash Ensemble
Diego Masson (conductor)

George Crumb: Night of the Four Moons; Vox balaenae (Voice of the Whale); Ancient Voices of Children.
