Piers asks why, by the end of his life, this Romantic virtuoso was all but forgotten.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00szcgx)
Opera Profiles

Opera Profile: Lully's Armide

Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of Lully's 17th Century operatic masterpiece "Armide" with French conductor Hugo Reyne highlighting some of its qualities and innovations.

Jean-Baptiste Lully almost single-handedly created French opera, and his Tragedie-Lyrique (tragic opera) "Armide" about a sorceress and her love for the valiant hero Renaud, was the culmination of a long and fruitful collaboration with librettist Philippe Quinault. "Armide" was instantly recognised as a masterpiece, remarkable not only for its attractive music, and affective dramatic architecture, as for its genius in setting the French language to music, and the psychological depths portrayed by its characters.

As part of the BBC year long celebration of opera, and the Early Music Show's monthly profile of important Baroque masterworks, Lucie Skeaping examines "Armide" with contributions from Lully champion and conductor Hugo Reyne. Key moments from the opera are performed from CD by Philippe Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale.

SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00szd8n)
Lobi Traore, Cheikh Lo, Brighton Kora Festival

Lucy Duran and Blur's Damon Albarn remember the life of the Malian guitarist Lobi Traore who died last month. Albarn's a big Malian music fan and actually produced Traore's self-titled 2005 album. Plus there's a session with Senegalese singer, songwriter and percussionist Cheikh Lo, and a preview of the UK's first kora festival in Brighton. Producer James Parkin.

Lobi Traore was born in 1961 on the left bank of the River Niger near Segou in Mali. He died of a heart attack on 1st June 2010.
Both his parents were singers, and members of the komo - the most important of three secret castes in Bambara society, charged with the custodianship of divine knowledge. Lobi followed in their footsteps living in a forest inhabited with wild animals, and going days without food and water. At the same time he pursued his training as a musician. Lucy and Damon reminisce and play some of their favourite tracks as well as preview a posthumous album due out in September.
Cheikh Lo is one of the great mavericks of African music who dedicates both his life and music to Baye Fall, a specifically Senegalese form of Islam and part of the larger Islamic brotherhood of Mouridism. His 1995 album 'Ne La Thiass' was produced by Youssou N'Dour and in 1996, he was signed to Buena Vista Social club label World Circuit. His latest album 'Jamm' was released at the end of June.
The UK's first festival of African Kora music is taking place for one day on Saturday 21st August 2010 at the Sallis Benney Theatre in Brighton.
The festival is the concept of Les Sherwood, one of only a handful of Kora makers in the UK. One of the featured artists Kadialy Kouyate joins Lucy in the studio for a session. The Kora is a form of West African harp.

Wagner: The Mastersingers of Nuremberg - Part 1

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Presented by Suzy Klein.

Welsh National Opera brings its new production of Wagner's Mastersingers of Nuremberg to the Royal Albert Hall, and the celebrated bass-baritone Bryn Terfel makes his debut in the role of Hans Sachs, the shoemaker and poet at the heart of this monumental work - part comedy, part love story, part meditation on the transformative power of art.

In 16th-century Nuremberg, the Mastersingers are a highly influential guild of singers who meet for an annual singing competition - a challenge requiring a high level of technical expertise, and rewarded by a coveted prize. For the forthcoming competition, the goldsmith, Pogner, offers an extra prize - the hand in marriage of his daughter, Eva. Into the town comes a young knight, Walther, with no experience in the craft of singing, but he falls instantly in love with Eva. He performs a song for a chance to enter the competition, but is judged to be unworthy by the pedantic town clerk, Beckmesser, who is also keen to win Eva's hand. Hans Sachs is the only member of the establishment willing to listen to the newcomer and to give him a chance in his quest.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b00dw3g2)
Nick Clegg

Michael Berkeley's guest today is Nick Clegg, Leader of the Liberal Democrats and MP for Sheffield Hallam. He was born in 1967, the third of four children of a half-Russian father and a Dutch mother. He speaks fluent Dutch, French, German and Spanish, and has a Spanish wife.

After beginning his career as a journalist and development aid and trade expert for the European Commission, he was elected as an MEP in 1999, writing many essays on public policy issues. He was elected MP for Sheffield Hallam in 2005, and succeeded Menzies Campbell as party leader in December 2007. Since this programme was first broadcast in October 2008, he has become Deputy Prime Minister in the newly-elected coalition government.

He admits that being an MP and particularly party leader, is such a full-time job (especially also having small children), that it doesn't leave very much time for leisure activities, but he loves listening to music when he can. His wife plays the piano, and three of his choices are of music played by pianists he greatly admires: a Schubert Impromptu in E flat minor played by Alfred Brendel, a Chopin waltz played by Claudio Arrau, and the slow movement of Chopin's Second Piano Concerto, played by Vladimir Ashkenazy. His other choices are Mozart's Laudate Dominum, K339, Schubert's terrifying song Erlkonig, sung by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau with Gerald Moore; and Richard Strauss's radiant Beim Schlafengehen, one of the Four Last Songs, sung by Elizabeth Schwarzkopf. (Rpt).


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00szfs3)
Caravaggio and Music

Catherine Bott talks to the art critic, writer and broadcaster Andrew Graham-Dixon about the Italian painter Caravaggio, and some of the musical references found in his work. In terms of religion, Caravaggio was born in troubled times, and losing many members of his family to the plague when he was a child left him psychologically scarred. Caravaggio led a rather shadowy, some might say dissolute life, and spent the last years of his life on the run after killing a man in Rome. His paintings are considered by some to be the real beginnings of Baroque art, full of light and shade, and often quite macabre and gruesome in content. Andrew Graham Dixon, who has just written a new book about Caravaggio, puts some of the painter's most famous works into the context of his fascinating life, alongside a soundtrack of music from the time by Monteverdi, Gesualdo, Cavalieri and Caccini. He and Catherine Bott also look in detail at three of Caravaggio's "musical" paintings: "The Lute Player", "The Musicians" and the troublesome "Amor vincit omnia".


SUN 14:00 Radio 3 Requests (b00szfs5)

Trumpet Concertos - Telemann, Haydn

Stephen Johnson takes the trumpet concerto as his subject, journeying from the baroque with a concerto by Telemann to Haydn's ground breaking masterpiece of the classical era. Phillipe Schartz is the soloist who at one point even ventures to play an original keyed bugle - a new kind of instrument that enabled the player for the first time to play all twelve notes of the scale, across the whole range of instrument, and which inspired Haydn to put pen to paper.

Verdi: Simon Boccanegra - Part 1

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

Classic Verdi themes are at the heart of his opera Simon Boccanegra: the clash of love and power, and an intense relationship between Boccanegra and his long-lost daughter Amelia. The Spanish tenor Placido Domingo has sung over 130 different operatic roles, which must be something of a record. But he had never sung a baritone role until a year ago, when he took on a part he had long wanted to play: Simon Boccanegra, the Doge of Genoa. 'Verdi didn't have any children,' says Domingo, 'and in any opera when you have the parts of father and daughter, he wrote his best music'.

This Proms semi-staging is based on the Royal Opera House production by Elijah Moshinsky, with a starry cast conducted by the Music Director at Covent Garden, Antonio Pappano.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00szh08)
In Search of Gustav Mahler

Marking the centenary of Gustav Mahler's death, Norman Lebrecht travels in the footsteps of the composer in search of those whose lives have been touched and changed by his music.

Beginning in the woods of Gustav Mahler's childhood, Lebrecht talks of a child who's so terrified by what's going on at home that he runs away deep into the woods where he sits on a log - listening. Something that he heard there became part of him. The noise of the wind blowing through the pines sounds like the note A - the note he starts his first symphony with not many years later. A long drawn out A - the A, Lebrecht says, that has made his Gustav Mahler.

In search of Gustav Mahler, Lebrecht visits not just the places he lived and the music he made, but the people who are alive today who have been touched by his music. Mahler was able to bring them face to face with themselves and gave them the means to continue.

Mahler was born in the tiny village of Kaliste in the Czech Republic - a few houses around a murky pond where his father's distillery is in ruins and is now for sale. There, Jiri Stilec has transformed the house where Mahler was born into a museum. Stilec says that when he had problems with his marriage, he used Mahler's 4th Symphony as medicine - the long melancholic melodies of the slow movement gave him hope. "It's really very deep music that gives me peace. It's like a drug."

At the opera house in Vienna where Mahler was director, the music archivist there is Peter Poltun. A former American diplomat to Turkey he used the 4th Symphony as an escape from the difficulties he encountered when in negotiations with security officers during the violence that engulfed Turkey of the 1970s. "There are dangerous emotions in this music. The sense of death and destruction is so strong you begin seeing everything through the prism of this music. It's frightening music" says Poltun.

Philosopher, Professor Anthony Grayling talks of how Mahler approached his music.
"I find Mahler very moving", says Grayling. "Not just emotionally, but intellectually. I find myself being drawn into the sense of the profound suffering in the world, but not in a way that makes me mourn it, but in a way that turns emotions into structures. It's an experience you become addicted to and you need it. You've got to go back to it and listen to it again and again."

"As a jazz musician the chords are just too delicious", says jazz pianist and composer Uri Caine who performs improvised sections of both the 1st and 5th Symphonies. "There's something just so aching about the harmony and so passionate. He's trying to embrace the whole world and include all the different aspects of his life in his music."

Renate Stark-Voigt is a musicologist who's spent years working on a complete and final edition of the 2nd Symphony. She describes hearing the adagietto from the 5th Symphony for the first time - it had such an affect on her that she had to spend weeks in the public rental library listening to the music again and again on LP. She became a music scholar because she had to understand what was behind Mahler's music and why it had such an effect on her. Yet there were times when she simply couldn't listen to his music. She describes how when her first child died, she couldn't hear any of his works. "I had periods when I couldn't hear a note of Mahler - when I was not strong, Mahler was too much for me."

Travelling from Kaliste, the village of his birth to Jihlava the town of his childhood in the Czech Republic, Lebrecht then moves to Vienna where Mahler was director of the Opera, and on to Klagenfurt in the south of Austria, almost in the Balkans where after 3 years at the opera and as a powerful man in the land, he builds a composing cabin deep in the woods. It's here where he finds the voice he was looking for ever since he was an infant - in the heart of nature, untroubled by the human conflicts he explores in his symphonies; he composed some of his darkest music here.

Lebrecht says: "There are times when I've needed Mahler more than anything else on earth - times when I've been so unsure or frightened or confused about the state of my world only Mahler would have the answer. Mahler can do many things - he can address you, he can harangue you, he can tease you, he can do many things, but in that music, there is a healing balm. Mahler from somewhere brings a reunion of the individual with the world, a person with nature - the possibility that out of chaos there can be harmony and there can be love. Mahler can be the healer of us all."

Producer: Jeremy Evans.


SUN 22:30 Words and Music (b00n6ytj)
Walkers, Wanderers and Wayfarers

Walking is the subject of this week's edition of the award-winning programme mixing music, poetry and prose. Clare Higgins and Ian McDiarmid read poems and prose extracts by Henry David Thoreau, Edward Thomas, WH Davies, William Wordsworth and Alfred Wainwright among others, while the music includes contributions from Mussorgsky, Elgar, Richard Strauss, Vaughan Williams and Lou Reed. From the age-old beneficial effects of sauntering to the exhilaration of climbing a mountain, and from a lover's evening stroll to the inconvenience of Manchester street-puddles, this seemingly everyday subject gradually takes us further and further from home...


SUN 23:30 Jazz Line-Up (b00szh0y)
Younee and Alex Hutton

At the Pizza Express Jazz Club, London in April of this year, Korean pianist Younee was joined by jazz pianist Alex Hutton as part of the Steinway Festival. The hour-long set had many highlights, among which were Alex Hutton's two numbers, 'The Ballad of Beautiful' and 'Silent Man', the arrangement of Bach's 'Siciliano' and Younee's own 'True to You'. Hutton sat out the first half of the song before returning to the keyboard to provide some inspired jazz embellishments to Younee's rock harmonies. An unusual item was a Korean folk song, 'Birds Birds', both pianos delicately played. This set was recorded on a Saturday lunchtime and attracted a substantial crowd .
Younee, from Seoul, Korea is 'beyond category' as a singer, songwriter and pianist. Her exquisitely vulnerable voice can also express raw power.
Alex Hutton is Yorkshire born, but has spent time in the US both studying and performing. In this session, he gave some impeccable answering phrases to Younee and there's a fine chance to hear some of his own composition.

"Try to imagine the whole universe beginning to ring and resound. There are no longer human voices, but planets and suns revolving" - so Mahler described his Eighth Symphony. It's a celebratory start to two months of music making at the world's greatest music festival and a tribute to the Proms founder and conductor - Sir Henry Wood - who gave the work its UK premiere 80 years ago.

Schumann, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky - Part 1

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Tom Service

An evening of heady romanticism as Byron's tortured hero Manfred takes centre stage in tonight's performance by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Inspired by Lord Byron's dramatic poem, Schumann provided incidental music which captures the story's ghostly, brooding atmosphere, whilst Tchaikovsky wrote a symphony in the style of tone poem, one of his most highly charged and theatrical orchestral works. Guilt, death, religion and temptation are the Byronic themes depicted by both composers in their works, which arguably gave the moody protagonist much more fame than the original poem would have done alone.

The RLPO is joined by Macedonian pianist and former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Simon Trpceski to perform the ever popular piano concerto No 2 by Rachmaninov. At the helm is Liverpool's own adopted hero Vassily Petrenko.

Proms Literary Festival: Byron

George Gordon Byron, 6th Baron Byron, romantic poet and political hero is discussed by critic Kevin Jackson and Nick Dear, writer of the BBC drama 'Byron" in the opening event of this year's BBC Proms Literary Festival.

Kevin Jackson and Nick Dear discuss why Bryon's life and work had such an enduring appeal. Is it the story of his reckless love affairs, international political activism and early death after defending Greek liberty - as portrayed in Nick's film, which starred Jonny Lee Miller as the poet himself? Or is it actually the power of his writing itself - from Don Juan, to the Prisoner of Chillon and the creation of the "Byronic hero".

Byron's writings borught to life some of the most enduring romantic heroes in literature - and they have had a powerful attraction for other artists. The 2010 Proms features several adaptations of Byron's work by composers - and this literary event precedes a concert featuring two settings by Schumann and Tchaikovsky of Byron's metaphysical poem Manfred, about a Swiss noble who seeks forgiveness from spirits for his past actions.

The Proms Literary Festival is now in its third year - tackling some of the literary and cultural dimensions of this year's Proms concerts, in front of an audience right next door to the Albert Hall at the Royal College of Music and just in advance of the concerts themselves.

Night Waves presenter Matthew Sweet hosts this Byron debate recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music.

MON 22:00 The Lebrecht Interview (b00szhsr)
Riccardo Chailly

In the first of this year's Lebrecht Interviews, Norman meets the Italian conductor Riccardo Chailly. For more than 30 years, Chailly has been one of Europe's most important conductors. The son of a well-known Italian composer and music administrator, his career has taken him from the opera house in Bologna to the Radio Symphony Orchestra in Berlin, the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam, and most recently the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig. Aged 57, Chailly specialises in the masterpieces of the symphonic repertoire and the summits of Italian opera. Yet some would say the Chailly story begs more questions than it answers. Although fluent in English, he's never held a major post in Britain or America; his moves have often been jagged and contentious, at odds with his calm and smiling persona. He talks to Norman about working with the likes of Pavarotti, Abbado and Karajan, his decision to leave Amsterdam (the first conductor ever to walk away from the Concertgebouw), the death of his father, and the possibility of a future post with a major American orchestra.


MON 23:00 The Essay (b00szhst)
Home Rule for the Soul

Gandhi Get Your Gun

Professor Sunil Khilnani, author of The Idea of India, sets out on a journey through the ideas of Gandhi's first major work, Hind Swaraj, which argues for freedom but against violence. But does modern India still find a space for such ideas? In the first of his essays, Gandhi Get Your Gun, Khilnani argues that the power of Gandhi's Hind Swaraj still speaks both to India's future and our own.

Autumn 1909. In the middle of the ocean, on a ship bound for South Africa, Mohandas Gandhi is gripped by 'A violent possession' as he furiously writes his first major work, Hind Swaraj. An astonishing critique of modern civilization and a defense of non-violent resistance, it was banned by the British who viewed it as a seditious manifesto.

Gandhi had greater ambitions than mere nationalist uprising. 'The essence of what I have said is that man should rest content with what are his real needs... if he does not have control he cannot save himself.' Written after his encounters with those who advocated revolutionary violence and terrorism in the cause of India's freedom, Hind Swaraj argues for force without violence or hatred as it strives to define what self rule, freedom, actually is.


MON 23:15 Jazz on 3 (b00szht3)
Kit Downes Trio

Jez Nelson presents hotly tipped pianist Kit Downes's trio, with drummer James Maddren and Calum Gourlay on double bass, recorded at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in May. Downes is a versatile player who, as part of a wave of twenty-something British musicians, has spent the past few years exploring new directions in jazz. Last heard on Jazz On 3 a few weeks ago playing organ in avant-blues-rock trio Troyka, he's also a member of the dark and explosive Golden Age of Steam. As a classic piano, bass and drums trio, Downes's own group makes more obvious reference to the jazz tradition than either of the above, but the group's sound looks forwards as well as back, and showcases Kit's voice as both a distinctive contemporary composer and an economical and thoughtful improviser.

Giuseppe Verdi

Nabucco, Aida

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of the operas of Verdi with the composer's only forays into 'exotic' subject-matter - Nabucco, his 3rd opera, and Aida, his 30th. Nabucco was Verdi's artistic break-through - a tremendous success, it made his name in Italy and all over Europe. Aida, written towards the other end of his long career, confirmed his reputation as the pre-eminent Italian composer of his day. Both works are best known for their choruses - Nabucco for 'Va pensiero', sung by the Hebrew slaves by the waters of Babylon; and Aida for the spectacular Triumph Scene from Act 2 scene 2, when the Egyptian troops return, victorious, to the city of Thebes.

Prom 03

Presented by Louise Fryer
Classic Verdi themes are at the heart of his opera Simon Boccanegra: the clash of love and power, and an intense relationship between Boccanegra and his long-lost daughter Amelia. The Spanish tenor Plácido Domingo has sung over 130 different operatic roles, which must be something of a record. But he had never sung a baritone role until a year ago, when he took on a part he had long wanted to play: Simon Boccanegra, the Doge of Genoa. This Proms semi-staging is based on the Royal Opera House production by Elijah Moshinsky, with a starry cast conducted by the Music Director at Covent Garden, Antonio Pappano. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Presented by Martin Handley.

The Russian-born conductor Semyon Bychkov has been in charge of the West German Radio Orchestra, based in Cologne, for more than ten years now and their performances and recordings have been widely acclaimed.

For tonight's Prom they are joined by the violinist Viviane Hagner for Mendelssohn's evergreen Violin Concerto. The programme begins with one of Wagner's most atmospheric operatic preludes and also includes a work by the veteran American composer Gunther Schuller. Finally, the orchestra performs one of Richard Strauss's most spectacularly colourful scores - his Alpine Symphony. Augmented by organ and an offstage band including twelve horns, Strauss's portrait of the mountain-climber's exhilarating day's adventure provides conductor and orchestra with a fearsome challenge of their own.

My Summer Job

Joe Queenan

Joe Queenan on working for a summer in a bubble gum factory. The first of five talks by writers on the temporary jobs they took before writing full time. Tedium or raw material? Is the summer job an enemy of promise or the best experience for a would be writer otherwise chained to their desk?

The American critic Joe Queenan begins the series with a memorable account of his time at a bubble gum factory in Philadelphia. "This was not the way I had expected to spend what had come to be known as The Summer of Love," he writes.

Joe worked the graveyard shift at Fleer's Bubble Gum, inventors of the Dubble Bubble, and most of his time was spent compacting trash. "I loved telling my friends, especially girlfriends, that I was working the graveyard shift. Using terminology like that made me feel like a man. I was not a man. I was not even close to being a man, but after that first summer in the factory, I felt at least that I could masquerade as one.".

Home Rule for the Soul

Episode 2

Professor Sunil Khilnani, author of The Idea of India, continues his journey through the ideas of Gandhi's first major work, Hind Swaraj, which argues for freedom of both self and nation but against violence. Gandhi is often thought of as a nationalist thinker but Khilnani urges us to think again. Most anti-colonial leaders sought the overthrow of white rule and the retention of the modern economy and state. Gandhi's view was precisely the opposite.

'India is being ground down not under the English heel, but under that of modern civilization', Gandhi wrote, arguing that by enslaving themselves to modern civilization, India had enslaved themselves to the British. True freedom, Swaraj, would only come, he believed, when India and individuals found a way to free themselves for the seduction of modern life.

Giuseppe Verdi

Giovanna d'Arco, I Masnadieri, Luisa Miller

Friedrich Schiller is perhaps most widely known today as the poet of the 'Ode to Joy', famously set to music in the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Verdi encountered his work through the glittering Milanese salon of Countess Clarina Maffei, whose husband Count Andrea had embarked on the task of translating Schiller's plays into Italian. Schiller became a favourite of Verdi's - second only to Shakespeare in his estimation - and the composer was to base four operas on his plays. Here, Donald Macleod considers three of them, written in fairly swift succession in the late 1840s - Giovanna d'Arco, I Masnadieri, and lastly Luisa Miller, which marks the transition to Verdi's mature style.

Producer: Chris Barstow.

With Louise Fryer

An abundance of heady romanticism as Byron's tortured hero Manfred takes centre stage in this Prom performance by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Inspired by Lord Byron's dramatic poem, Schumann provided incidental music which captures the story's ghostly, brooding atmosphere, whilst Tchaikovsky wrote a symphony in the style of tone poem, one of his most highly charged and theatrical orchestral works. The RLPO is joined by Macedonian pianist and former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Simon Trpceski to perform the ever popular Piano Concerto No 2 by Rachmaninov. At the helm is Liverpool's own adopted hero Vassily Petrenko. Presented by Tom Service.

WED 21:15 Sunday Feature (b00lxrp7)
Searching for Alfred in the Shadow of Tennyson

To many people today Alfred, Lord Tennyson is an iconic image of the Victorian era. We know him as Queen Victorian's Poet Laureate, an imposing figure with a beard and cape and the author of long poems often based on myths and legends. But this image hides other facets of Tennyson and obscures the fact that many creative artists today are drawing on his work.

In this programme the poet and writer Ruth Padel goes in search of the real Tennyson, championing him as a poet for our times as well as his own. In conversation with figures as diverse as the poet and former Laureate Andrew Motion, the novelists Andrew O' Hagan and Adam Foulds, the poet Jo Shapcott, the rock musician Dani Filth and academics Robert Douglas-Fairhurst and Angela Leighton, she hears how the figure of Tennyson has been an inspiration to them.

Ruth also investigates the real Alfred behind the image of grandeur. She finds our about his preoccupation with what he called the "black blood" of his family, whose members were prone to break-downs, alcoholism and madness. And she hears how these concerns led to Tennyson's ability to articulate neurosis and loss in his work even though, as Poet Laureate, he became an establishment figure.

This programme was first broadcast in 2009 to mark the 200th anniversary of Tennyson's birth.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00t374k)
Giuseppe Verdi

Don Carlos

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Verdi's operas with Don Carlos, an epic tale of thwarted love that poses epic problems for directors. The historical Don Carlos was a tortured, tragic and misshapen young man in 16th-century Spain. Verdi's grand operatic version of his life, based, not for the first time, on a play by Schiller, turned out to have one of the most tortuous and protracted histories in all opera. As a result there are no fewer than eight possible 'authentic' versions of the score, so for anyone putting on a production of Don Carlos, it's rather a case of Let's Make an Opera!

Producer: Chris Barstow.

With Louise Fryer

The Russian-born conductor Semyon Bychkov has been in charge of the West German Radio Orchestra, based in Cologne, for more than ten years now and their performances and recordings have been widely acclaimed. They are joined in this Prom by the violinist Viviane Hagner for Mendelssohn's evergreen Violin Concerto. The programme concludes with one of Richard Strauss's most spectacularly colourful scores - his Alpine Symphony. Augmented by organ and an offstage band including twelve horns, Strauss's portrait of the mountain-climber's exhilarating day's adventure provides conductor and orchestra with a fearsome challenge of their own. Presented by Martin Handley.

Prom 08

Britten, Prokofiev, Shostakovich - Part 1

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Rob Cowan.

Two immensely powerful pieces from World War II frame this concert, given by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer. Prokofiev's First Piano Concerto, by contrast, is witty and exuberant. In just a quarter of an hour it condenses a three movement concerto into just a single arch.

As the Nazis invaded, Britten received an anonymous invitation from the Japanese government to write a work commemorating the founding of the Mikado dynasty 2600 years earlier. He completed his Sinfonia da Requiem the following year, but the Japanese government rejected it as inappropriate for their celebrations and too Christian in its nature. The work reflects the composer's feelings about the inhumanity of war and, based on the liturgy of the mass of the dead, he dedicated it to the memory of his parents.

Shostakovich was rather closer to the action than Britten, when Russia entered the war against Germany, in 1941. He was in Leningrad where, between July and October, he witnessed first-hand the Nazis's siege of the city while he worked on his Seventh Symphony.

"I was in no hurry to leave the city where a true fighting spirit reigned. Women, children and old people acted courageously. I will always remember the women of Leningrad who selflessly struggled to put out incendiary bombs.I worked day and night, I could hear ack-ack guns firing and shells exploding as I worked, but I never stopped writing."

Prokofiev's concerto exploits the percussive potential of the piano, and in turn expresses his take on clean neo-classical lines, contrasted with tumbling leaps and richer more romantic textures, indebted to Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky.

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b00kl0fn)
Children of the Whitsun Weddings

Poets Kate Clanchy and Paul Farley take the train through 'Larkinland' and explore their mutual admiration for Larkin's work, especially his masterpiece 'The Whitsun Weddings'.

If - as much contemporary criticism has it - Philip Larkin was a misogynist and a snob, what would he have to say to a poet from one of the working-class estates he thought would destroy England, and a bourgeois woman who writes poems about motherhood? Poets Paul Farley and Kate Clanchy were born within days of each other in 1965, nine months after the publication of 'The Whitsun Weddings'. They grew up in very different Englands, and have very different poetic voices. In this programme, they travel across Britain retracing some of Larkin's key train-inspired poetic journeys.

The iambic click of the rail carriage will accompany readings of 'The Whitsun Weddings', 'Dockery and Son', 'Friday Night at the Royal Station Hotel' and 'Here'. The journeys from Oxford to Sheffield, Hull to London, via 'colleges and clouds' and 'awful pies', lead Kate and Paul to a series of lively interchanges on class, gender, paternity and Englishness, to considerations of the poet's influence on them and on other contemporary writers. Along the way, they meet fellow Larkin lovers, but also real people - such as the Hull woman married in the 1950s who remembers the 'bridal express' days captured in 'The Whitsun Weddings' - to build up a picture of how much of Larkin's England has gone, and what remains.

New readings of the poems are mixed with archive recordings. Above all, Kate Clanchy and Paul Farley interrogate why and how a middle class woman and a working class man, in a train moving around a changing England, can agree unfailingly on Larkin's poems - as they examine the passion, despite everything, they share for Larkin's work.


THU 23:00 The Essay (b00szrl3)
Home Rule for the Soul

Home Rule for the Soul

Professor Sunil Khilnani continues his exploration of the power of Gandhi's ideas of freedom for self and nation in his first major work, Hind Swaraj. Written in a frenzy in the autumn of 1909 when Gandhi was returning to South Africa, Hind Swaraj is a ferocious critique of modern civilization, revolution and violence.

For Gandhi the self was the well spring of all political possibility. 'Politics encircles us today like the coil of a snake from which one cannot get out, no matter how much one tries'. His attempts to wrestle with the snake of politics, to reject the process of ends and means redefined the scope of political action.

Giuseppe Verdi

Macbeth, Otello, Falstaff

For Verdi, Shakespeare was 'the great poet of the human heart' and the greatest of all playwrights, whom he sometimes referred to simply as 'Papa'. Donald Macleod concludes his exploration of Verdi's operas with his Shakespearean trio: a groundbreaking early work, Macbeth; and his final two operatic essays, Otello and Falstaff - acknowledged pinnacles of the genre. All three excerpts show the protagonists losing control in one way or another: Lady Macbeth, in the famous sleepwalking scene, is unable to suppress her murderous guilt; Otello is unable to control his jealously and rage; and Falstaff, tricked into taking cover in a laundry basket, finds himself at the mercy of gravity, as he's unceremoniously tossed out of a window into the River Thames.

Producer: Chris Barstow.

With Louise Fryer

An all-Beethoven Proms programme. Distinguished pianist Paul Lewis launches his complete cycle of piano concertos with the exuberant First and the more introspective but tensely dramatic Fourth. He is partnered by Jiri Belohlavek and the BBC Symphony Orchestra with whom he recently recorded all five concertos. And there is more characteristic Beethovenian drama with two heroic overtures: one battling against oppression and the other recounting the legend of the Creatures of Prometheus who were created with fire from the gods. Presented by Katie Derham.

FRI 19:30 BBC Proms (b00szrqk)
Prom 09

Parry, Scriabin, Tchaikovsky - Part 1

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Vassily Sinaisky, the BBC Philharmonic's Chief Guest Conductor, is a champion of both Russian and English repertoire, and this Prom draws these two passions together.

The evening opens with the first Proms performance of Parry's Symphonic Fantasia, and closes with Tchaikovsky's swansong, his 'Pathetique' Symphony. Vassily Sinaisky admits "even though it is my favourite piece, I try not to conduct it too much, as every performance of it should be a special event".

At the centre of the BBC Philharmonic's first appearance this season is Scriabin's Piano Concerto, with Argentinean soloist Nelson Goerner, whose performances of the great Romantic concertos are much admired. A relatively early work, the influence of Chopin on Scriabin's music can be clearly detected here.

Parry: Symphonic Fantasia in B minor, '1912' (Symphony No. 5)
Scriabin: Piano Concerto in F sharp minor

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 in B minor, 'Pathetique'

FRI 20:30 Twenty Minutes (b00szrqw)
The Diaries of Sofia Tolstoy

Sofia Tolstoy, the wife of Count Leo Tolstoy, kept a diary for most of her life. It offers a fascinating chronicle of her marriage to the great Russian writer, and a vivid account of the trials and tribulations of her daily life. The selected extract focuses on the summer of 1897 when Sofia and Leo are approaching their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary. Turbulence characterizes their relationship, and while there are moments of passion and tenderness, tensions are also apparent. Leo is a demanding and difficult man, and it is Sofia who ensures her husband's needs are met. She also manages the estate where they live, and her responsibilities as a mother to her nine children are further demands on her time. However, amid the demands of daily life, she finds solace in the beautiful landscape around her, swimming in the nearby river, and more contentiously, her friendship with the composer, Taneev.

Abridged and produced by Elizabeth Allard.

For the Islands I Sing

George Mackay Brown was one of the most important Scottish poets of the 20th century. He believed a poet was born, not made, and his gifts might either flourish or wither depending on circumstance. In his case he suspected that, had he grown up in a city, he might never have written a word. He lived in Orkney, and the islands for him became a 'place of order, a place of remembrance, a place of vision' which sustained him throughout his life.

Poet Kenneth Steven travels to Stromness, where George Mackay Brown remained for almost his entire life, to speak to those who remember him and his influence in the community.

Home Rule for the Soul

Home Rule for the Soul

Professor Sunil Khilnani, author of The Idea of India, concludes his exploration of Gandhi's ideas and beliefs first set down in Hind Swaraj. 'My writings should be cremated with my body", Gandhi said in 1937, " What I have done will endure, not what I have said or written'. It's an intriguing statement, especially coming from someone whose collected writings amount to a hundred volumes: and it underlines Gandhi's belief that his greatest political text is in fact his life.
