SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b00tmf52)
Sir Henry's Hoard

Discovered in the basement of the British Library: Proms legend Sir Henry Wood's substantial collection of concert programmes dating from the 1900s and covering musical events across Europe and beyond. Bound into a succession of volumes proudly displaying their owner's name in gold leaf.

In Sir Henry's Hoard, Stephen Johnson uses this fabulous collection to build a picture of concert life of the day: the great performers (for example, Pablo de Sarasate, Fritz Kreisler, Arthur Nikisch); the hot new music of the day (Richard Strauss, Max Reger, Gustav Mahler); the first early music revival, embracing music from Monteverdi to Bach; the late 19th century 'golden period' for women's music-making; the often (to us) strange make-up of concerts, with the overture often last, for example.

There's also a look at how advances in printing techniques made it possible for such programmes to be produced swiftly, attractively and cheaply, together with a sideways glance at the exotic range of businesses that might advertise in such publications, from umbrella and hat makers to life assurance salesmen.

Why did Henry Wood join the exchange scheme that circulated such concert programmes, his own included? Just to be well-informed....or as a route to furthering his fledgling career?

Along the way, Stephen Johnson visits the site of the Queen's Hall where Wood made his name through the Promenade Concerts, and the Hitchin church where his wartime funeral took place, a few miles from his last 'home' - the Cromwell Hotel in Stevenage. He also tracks down two stray volumes of programmes that turned up in Cambridge.

And of course there's plenty of music, much of it from major performers of Henry Wood's day...and plenty from 'Old Timber' himself.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00tmf6t)
Dartington 2010

Episode 1

Dartington's International Summer School grew out of the very first Edinburgh Festival in 1947 and has run every year since, attracting luminaries in the musical world to work alongside talented amateurs and professionals. 2010 is the last year which the Summer School will be under the stewardship of Artistic Director Gavin Henderson, who has been running the Summer School since 1985. Dartington has long had a strong focus on early music, and Lucie Skeaping travelled to the 2010 Summer School to speak with some of the various illustrious tutors about events there this year and about the importance of the Summer School for early music in this country.


SAT 14:00 BBC Proms (b00tkmjc)
Proms Chamber Music

PCM 07 - Lars Vogt

BBC PROMS 2010

From the Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Catherine Bott.

Another chance to hear last Monday's Proms Chamber Music recital with pianist Lars Vogt. The programme begins with Janacek's impressionistic last major piano work, it's 'mistiness' captured in these miniatures by evocative harmonies and constantly shifting perspectives. Schubert's Sonata is by contrast one of his more expansive solo works in which the easy-going tone is interrupted by anguished outbursts, though the mood lightens again for the playful conclusion.

Janacek: In the Mists
Schubert: Piano Sonata in G major, D894

Lars Vogt, piano.


SAT 15:00 BBC Proms (b00tmf9f)
Proms Chamber Music

PSM 05 - BBC Singers, Endymion

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Catherine Bott

Music which casts a glance over its shoulder to the works of previous generations is the keynote of this Proms Saturday Matinee, including pieces by living composers which have been inspired by the music of earlier times.

Judith Weir's All the Ends of the Earth takes as its starting-point the newly-invented style of four-part singing developed at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris in the 13th century, while Brian Ferneyhough's work for string quartet is based on music by the Tudor composer Christopher Tye. Jonathan Harvey's motet for Easter is inspired by the work of Tye's contemporary John Taverner, as is Gabriel Jackson's new piece, a BBC commission, which makes a 21st-century contribution to the popular Renaissance form initiated by Taverner, the In nomine.

Completing the programme, another BBC commission by the Edinburgh-born but California-based Thea Musgrave. Ithaca sets a modern poetic description of Odysseus' epic journey back to his island home after the Trojan Wars. And - a classical companion-piece - Bayan Northcott, in his Hymn to Cybele, sets words by Catullus in honour of the wild mountain Mother-Goddess whose followers were noted for their orgiastic nocturnal dances of self-mutilation.

Judith Weir: All the Ends of the Earth
Thea Musgrave: Ithaca (BBC commission; World Premiere)
Bayan Northcott: Hymn to Cybele
Brian Ferneyhough: Dum transisset I-IV (London premiere)

Prom 66

Wagner, Strauss, Webern, Berg - Part 1

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

In the second of their two BBC Proms this year, Simon Rattle and his renowned Berlin orchestra play music from the heart of the Austro-German repertoire.

The atmospheric prelude to Wagner's last opera, is followed by Richard Strauss's swansong, with popular Finnish soprano, Karita Mattila, composed in the 1940s but full of nostalgia for the first Romantic age.

After the interval, music from the avant-garde maelstrom of early twentieth-century Vienna, as Schoenberg and his pupils Berg and Webern take their cue from the innovations of Wagner, Strauss and Mahler to split traditional tonality at the seams.

Wagner: Parsifal - Prelude (Act 1)
R. Strauss: Four Last Songs

Karita Mattila (soprano)
Berliner Philharmoniker
Sir Simon Rattle (conductor)

This Prom will be repeated on Friday 10th September at 2.20pm.


SAT 20:10 Twenty Minutes (b00tmfds)
Jung's Red Book

Bidisha looks at Carl Jung's remarkable Red Book, recently made available to the public for the first time, in which he developed his theories and also created a beautiful work of art.

The early part of the 20th Century was a time of great spiritual, intellectual and artistic upheaval in Western Europe. In Vienna, Arnold Schoenberg and his pupils Anton Webern and Alban Berg, whose music we will hear in the second half of tonight's Prom, were rewriting the rules of classical music. Sigmund Freud was practising psychoanalysis in Vienna, and Jung was developing his theories of analytical psychology; the two worked closely together for several years.

Europe was heading for the First World War and on the eve of the war Jung had an almost catastrophic spiritual crisis which led him to enter in to a long and complex period of self-analysis.

Jung recorded his psychological experiments on himself in a beautiful manuscript which he called Liber Novus (the New Book). Bound in red leather, it became known as the Red Book.

The Red Book contains fine calligraphy, with illuminated capital letters like a medieval manuscript. Jung also created several full-page paintings - some fairly naturalistic, others which appear to be abstract patterns. Jung used these images to help him analyse his own unconscious and to develop some of his most important theories in analytical psychology.

The Red Book remained hidden by Jung's family after he died, first in the family home then in a Swiss bank vault. It was not until late in 2009 that a facsimile of the Book was finally published and made available to the public.

Bidisha talks to Professor Sonu Shamdasani, Editor of the published edition of the Red Book, and to the artist Bettina Reiber about this extraordinary artefact.

SUNDAY 05 SEPTEMBER 2010

SUN 00:00 The Early Music Show (b00qzt9l)
The Court of Mary, Queen of Scots

David McGuinness visits Stirling Castle and the Palace of Holyrood House in Edinburgh, to trace the story of Mary Queen of Scots' reign, and the music which surrounded her. From the devotional masses and motets by Robert Carver - so popular with Mary's father, King James V, to the jolly French dances she would have enjoyed during her first marriage to Francis Dauphin of France, Mary remained a music lover throughout her short life. Queen Mary's favourite attendant and confidante during her second marriage to her cousin, Lord Henry Darnley, was an Italian musician called David Rizzio. Darnley and David Rizzio spent long hours together on the tennis court at Falkland Palace, but Darnley's jealousy grew at the Italian's familiarity with his new wife, and he planned to do away with Rizzio at the earliest opportunity. The political assassination that followed was carefully staged, with 500 armed men keeping the Palace of Holyrood House secure while Lord Ruthven and his accomplices burst in to Mary's chamber, where she and Rizzio were sharing supper with guests. Rizzio was dragged from the dinner table and stabbed more than 50 times in front of the Queen.

The Barley Bird

In Suffolk they call the Nightingale, the Barley Bird, as its arrival coincides with the sprouting of the barley. The acclaimed nature writer, Richard Mabey, a longtime devotee of the bird, reads extracts from his new book, 'The Barley Bird', and muses on how this mysterious and elusive bird has inspired poets and musicians across the centuries. He recalls too, the famous series of annual outside broadcasts made by the cellist Beatrice Harrison and her accompanist - a nightingale in her garden.

To complete Henry Wood day, the Ulster Orchestra and its Principal Guest Conductor Paul Watkins perform music either premiered by or closely associated with Sir Henry Wood, founder conductor of the Proms.

There is inevitably a strong English flavour to the programme with works by Arthur Bliss, Arnold Bax and Hubert Parry.

Proms Literary Festival: From Howards End to Henry Wood

Matthew Sweet explores the Edwardian cultural landscape in 1910, to understand the painting, literature and theatrical performance that would have been part of the experience of the audience who attended the last night of the Proms 100 years ago. Historian Juliet Gardiner, writer Juliet Nicolson and art historian Lynda Nead join an audience at the Royal College of Music to talk about the key arts and social movements of the time, discuss the extent to which international artistic trends permeated British work, and whether the iconoclastic power of modernism would have already been evident to arts-goers of the time.

Exile

Frances Barber and Greg Hicks read poetry and prose exploring the theme of exile. The texts look at differing reactions to being away from home and its effects, or thinking that home should be somewhere other than it is. Shakespeare, Du Maurier, Italo Calvino, WB Yeats, AE Housman, Browning, Shelley, John Clare, Edward Lear, and Emily Dickinson provide the words; music from Chabrier, Byrd, Bach and Bob Marley, among others.
Produced by David Papp.


SUN 23:45 Jazz Line-Up (b00tmj1l)
Julian Joseph with the latest jazz news and releases from the UK's vibrant jazz scene. Plus an interview with Jasper Hoiby and Ivo Neame from Phronesis profiling their latest album ' Alive'. Phronesis are led by Danish double-bassist Jasper Hoiby and also feature British pianist Ivo Neame (Loop Collective) and American drummer Mark Guiliana (Avishai Cohen/ Meshell Ndegeocello). Their latest recording 'Alive' was recorded over two nights at London's Forge Arts Venue and captures the trio at the height of their powers. In Hoiby's words ' This is what I love about playing live, there's a real edge and freshness that exites me'. The performance on the 'Alive' succesfully documents the telepathic empathy between the musicians and their collective desire to take music in new directions. This spirit of adventure prompted Jazzwise Editor Jon Newey to describe them in live performance as 'the most exciting and imaginative jazz trio since EST'. Join Julian Joseph as Jasper and Ivo navigate through selections from 'Alive' and provide insights into their approach to music making.

Vibrant French ensemble Le Poème Harmonique and their director Vincent Dumestre conjure up the carnivalesque atmosphere of 17th century Venice, where the streets and palaces provided a cultural melting pot for both popular and artistic styles of the day.

MON 21:15 The Lebrecht Interview (b00tmj7k)
Patrice Chereau

Now 65, Patrice Chereau is one of the most highly regarded French directors. He began his career directing at his Lycee and running a theatre in the Parisian suburbs in the 1960s. Not long after he was invited to Italy and to Germany initially directing plays by the classic dramatists.

His first job in opera was a work by Rossini at Spoleto but the occasion which caused the greatest controversy was in 1976 at Bayreuth when he directed Wagner's Ring Cycle with Pierre Boulez conducting. Chereau was not the first choice - Ingmar Bergman and Peter Brook were asked but both turned it down. Then, after Peter Stein accepted but then withdrew, Boulez approached Chereau. His production was deemed controversial in its setting, drawing as it did, heavily on the years of the 19th century Industrial Revolution and many staunch Wagnerites were incensed that the centenary Ring should be in the hands of a French production team. But the production is now seen as hugely influential in the effect it had on opera directors all over the world. It was widely seen on television in this country and abroad.

Patrice Chereau talks candidly to Norman Lebrecht in this interview recorded at his home in Paris about the Bayreuth experience including the hostility of the audience and the problems caused by his late appointment as director. He also talks about the works which attract him: Wozzeck and Lulu by Berg and Janacek's From The House of The Dead, all of which deal with difficult and sometimes expressionistic subject matter. And about some of his films which deal with issues of sexuality including L'Homme blesse and Son Frere.

The musicians of Ensemble Matheus from Brittany in the far west of France have been making a name for themselves in recent years with their thrilling performances of Baroque music. Tonight they make their Proms debut with their founder-director Jean-Christophe Spinosi in music from the heart of their repertory, by Handel, Telemann and Vivaldi.

Celebrated French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky and Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux join the group for arias and duets by Handel and one of his greatest operatic rivals in early eighteenth-century London, Nicola Porpora - including music he wrote for the famous castrato Farinelli.

Handel: Julius Caesar - Empiro dirò tu sei

Vivaldi: Orlando furioso - 'Sol da te, mio dolce amore' & 'Sorge l'irato nembo'

Elton Dean Tribute Session

Jez Nelson presents a session played in tribute to the late saxophonist Elton Dean, featuring Alex Maguire on keyboards, trumpeter Jim Dvorak, saxophonist Simon Picard, bassist Paul Rogers and drummer Tony Levin.

A versatile musician, whose work over four decades encompassed free improvisation, jazz-rock and avant-jazz, Elton Dean was a key figure on the UK's creative music scene until his death in 2006 at the age of 60. Having made his name in Keith Tippett's sextet and then seminal rock group Soft Machine in the late 60s and early 70s, he went on to lead diverse projects of his own and work with a wide range of collaborators, several of whom feature in this session.

This completely improvised set was recorded in June this year in the living room of Dean's flat in London's Dalston. Four years after his death it still contained posters, tapes and memorabilia that provided poignant reminders of Dean's life and work, and plenty of inspiration for the musicians who came together to remember him. Just a few days after this session was recorded the flat was due to be cleared out and refurbished.

Leonard Bernstein

Episode 2

Bernstein always seems to have been in the right place at the right time. Seven years to the day since meeting his mentor Aaron Copland, he gallantly took the baton at the last minute of the ailing Bruno Walter in a broadcast with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Thus Bernstein was catapulted into the limelight. Donald Macleod also explores his beloved Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and we'll hear 'Prelude, Fugue and Riffs', first performed in Bernstein's second appearance on the television programme 'Omnibus'.

With Katie Derham

Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the visiting Czech Philharmonic Orchestra frame their programme with Dvorak's ebullient, life-affirming Carnival Overture and his radiant 8th Symphony. In between, Martinu's 6th Symphony dances with Czech and Moravian folk melodies and rhythms; there's a detour to the Norwegian fjords for Grieg's Piano Concerto with Lars Vogt; and back to the Moravian Janacek whose gentle Ballad of Blanik was inspired by Czech independence and the new nation's legendary guardians. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Debussy, Stravinsky - Part 1

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Suzy Klein

The Orchestre National de France and Music Director Daniele Gatti present three vibrant masterpieces with Parisian connections.

Debussy's subtly shifting impression of the sea, completed in Eastborne and first performed in Paris, is now one of his best-loved works. His earlier Prelude, inspired by a Mallarmé poem, alludes to the desires and dreams of the faun. Nijinsky danced his erotic choreography to Debussy's score for the Ballets russes in 1912, and this connection is followed through with Stravinsky's primeval Rite of Spring, which was performed by the Ballets russes in Paris the following year and provoked an even more sensational scandal for Diaghilev's company.

The Rite of Autumn

The Orchestre National de France is about to perform 'The Rite of Spring', but spring is long past, the long summer of concerts is drawing to its close and the autumn equinox is a fortnight away. Doc Rowe, who since the 1960s has been recording and filming the traditions, vernacular arts, folklore, song and dance of Britain and Ireland, explores the rites of autumn. With recordings of such events and customs as the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance, Punkie Night in Hinton St George, and the wild bonfires of Kent and Sussex, and talking to those involved, he reveals how people here mark the gathering dark.

Producer: Julian May.

TUE 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00qps1j)
From Gameboy to Armageddon

War games are as old as military history but something has begun to change as war and play converge to create what some call the 'military entertainment complex'. Ken Hollings pushes the button on this latest phenomenon.

Men have always played at and with soldiers. Gaming has been an essential part of warfare and by the 19th Century it had been developed into the sophisticated "Kriegspiel", derived from the still influential theories of Von Clausewitz and played at military colleges in both Europe and America. These war games then became real games for table-top strategists by the early 20th Century. A remarkable synergy developed between colleges of war and devisers of such games, particularly in America. And in the think tanks of the RAND Corp gaming theory was used intensively to plot the future of war and nuclear destruction.

But from the late 1970s computer strategy games started to form a powerful loop between gamers and warriors. With the creation of the SIMNET, the military began to develop hugely powerful simulators and now convergence is taking place between military and the entertainment industry. Some say we are living in what Stanford Professor Tim Lenoir has called 'the military entertainment complex', with military functions increasingly taking place online, using simulation for training and in the treatment of soldiers suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. But is this new realm of war truly a revolution - the shape of things to come - or just more virtual bangs for real bucks?

Out of the Marvellous

The poet Katrina Porteous lives at the edge of the land in the Northumbrian village of Beadnell and has spent her life exploring and writing about the culture and language of fishing, the land and seascape, the sky full of seabirds and the history of her place. In her essay, 'Out of the Marvellous', recorded on the rocks, in a tarry old fisherman's hut and the ruins of an ancient headland chapel, she reveals how the meeting of land and sea and sky has shaped the way of life of a community, and her own way of seeing and artistic creation.

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Penny Gore

Bruckner, like his hero Wagner, composed on a vast scale. The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor, Jiri Belohlávek, pairs the festive prelude from Act 3 of Wagner's 'swan knight' romance with the most overarching and open-hearted of Bruckner's nine symphonies - a work whose slow movement was composed in the shadow of Wagner's death and enshrines Bruckner's musical memorial to the man he revered as the 'Master'. Always a composer of vivid and funky surprises, Tansy Davies promises in her new work to take us on a journey through the Tarot pack.

Dusk Walk

"Walking at dusk means walking at the magic hour of transformation and metamorphosis, that charged time when the underworld opens up, the mysterious time of transition, of hauntings and sightings. The French call dusk l'heure bleue, and it can be the most beautiful time of day..."

The novelist Michele Roberts closes the iron gate behind her and takes to the streets of Kiev, as things are starting to lose their daytime definition. It's still boiling though, as darkness comes. And in the next half hour she encounters packs of dogs, inspirational saints and pretty girls boldly dressed for their own evening stolls.

It all happens on the streets of Kiev.

In this specailly commissioned essay, novelist Michele Roberts
takes to the streets of Kiev, to find out what happens in the transforming
hour of dusk...

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0093t4q)
Leonard Bernstein

Bad Times

Bernstein's seemingly perfect life as a loving husband and father, an exceptional musical talent and an electric personality are in jeopardy in this fourth programme. Donald Macleod maps a category of bad events in Bernstein's life. He blamed his wife Felicia for his Broadway flop 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue; she'd apparently encouraged him to work with its librettist. But Bernstein's affair with his assistant Thomas Cothran, for whom he momentarily left his wife, was a harsher blow. Bernstein's relationship with Cothran resulted in their collaboration on 'Songfest - A Cycle of American Poems', played here in its entirety.

Llyr Williams

EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 2010

Welsh pianist -and former BBC New Generation Artist- Llyr Williams pairs Beethoven's Sonata Quasi Una Fantasia, in E-flat major, with Charles Ives' majestic 'Concord' Sonata. To recreate the American composer's eccentric musical vision, he is joined by violist Jane Atkins and flautist Juliette Bausor, for an expanded Piano Sonata which is as much a study of Ives' philosophy as his composition.

Beethoven:
Piano Sonata No. 13 in E-flat Op.27 No. 1

Ives:
Piano Sonata No. 2, "Concord, Mass., 1840-1860".

Prom 63

With Jonathan Swain

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales' French-born associate conductor, Francois-Xavier Roth, directs a mainly French-flavoured programme beginning with a brilliant suite by Rameau and a selection of Canteloube's seductive folk song settings with Italian Anna Caterina Antonacci as soloist. The title of Paris-based Argentinian composer Martin Matalon's new work translates as 'Lines of Flight' and relates to a technique in drawing where added lines produce depth and perspective in a picture. Finally a rarely-heard version of Musorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, orchestrated with characteristic flair and imagination by the founder of the Proms, Sir Henry Wood. Presented by Louise Fryer.

Rameau: Dardanus - suite

Schubert, Schumann, Mozart - Part 1

BBC PROMS 2010

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

The Romantic spirit of bicentenary composer Schumann hovers above the central works of this concert. His lyrical 'Introduction and Allegro appassionato' - in effect a single-movement piano concerto - is played by Finghin Collins, and Dorothea Röschmann is the soloist in Robin Holloway's illumination of Schumann's last song cycle, which sets poems and prayers by Mary Queen of Scots, written during her incarceration by her cousin Elizabeth I.

Gianandrea Noseda frames these works with two well-known penultimate symphonies - Schubert's tantalisingly 'Unfinished' but nonetheless perfect work, and what is probably Mozart's darkest masterpiece.

Drawing on her own childhood picnics in the parks of Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Bradford, she reflects on the importance of parks in city life and what Buile Hill Park means to the different cultures of Salford. Walking in the footsteps of Lowry, this first person essay recorded on location defines what the city has lost and more importantly found.

Tracking the Aryans

Historian Bettany Hughes uncovers the troubled story of the search for the ancient Aryans, and journeys to Siberia to find out how recent archaeological discoveries are bringing them renewed attention.

Nowadays associated with the Nazi ideology of a blond blue-eyed master race, the term Aryan was once used to refer to the speakers of a prehistoric language from which the modern Indo-European Language family is descended (including, among others, English, German, Latin, Greek, Farsi and Hindi). But the name's origins lie in the ancient texts of Bronze Age Iran and North India.

Archaeologists on the remote borders of Siberia and Kazakhstan have recently uncovered a series of unexpectedly sophisticated prehistoric settlements. Within, they have discovered unusually complex burial rituals and the earliest known chariots in the world. Could this Steppe culture be the origin of the Aryans of Iran and North India? And what can it tell us about the origin of Indo-European languages?

Bettany travels to the Siberian Steppe to the ancient circular fortified town of Arkaim to find out. And witnesses how even today the Aryans are being used for modern political ends.

THU 23:00 The Essay (b00r8b0b)
Land and Sea and Sky

Episode 2

The poet and essayist Jeremy Hooker recalls his early life on the south coast, looking across to Isle of Wight, in wartime. The sea and sky were fascinating, and dangerous, and the land fractured, revealing remants of earlier creations and their stories. Out of these the poet was himself made. Hooker considers other poets of the south country -Tennyson, whose memorial he could see on the Island, and Thomas Hardy. Their poetry has a Victorian melancholy which he resists in his own. He contrasts the meeting of land and sea and sky he knew as a boy with that in west Wales, where storms shifted the furniture in his seafront room. And for Hooker the meeting of land and sea and sky, its shifting, its re-arranging and it rhythms provides an example, a poetic discipline.

Leonard Bernstein

The Final Years

Donald Macleod discovers that Bernstein's final years were anything but quiet despite declining health with much of his work being autobiographical. Felicia Bernstein's death in June 1978, not long after the reconciliation with her husband, left a gaping void in Bernstein's life. He began contemplating his own mortality and leaving a legacy in his final decade is including a song cycle named after a remark by President Eisenhower who preferred music with a good tune, "not all them Arias and Barcarolles". Works featured in this programme include 'The Great American Opera' and 'A Quiet Place'.

Prom 66

With Jonathan Swain

In the second of their two BBC Proms this year, Simon Rattle and his renowned Berlin orchestra play music from the heart of the Austro-German repertoire.

The atmospheric prelude to Wagner's last opera, is followed by popular Finnish soprano Karita Mattila singing Richard Strauss's swansong, composed in the 1940s but full of nostalgia for the first Romantic age.

There's also music from the avant-garde maelstrom of early twentieth-century Vienna, as Schoenberg and his pupils Berg and Webern take their cue from the innovations of Wagner, Strauss and Mahler to split traditional tonality at the seams. Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Wagner: Parsifal - Prelude (Act 1)
Richard Strauss: Four Last Songs
Schoenberg: Five Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 16 (original 1909 version)
Webern: Six Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 6 (1928 version)

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts the Monteverdi Choir and English Baroque Soloists in Monteverdi's resplendent Vespers. Published 400 years ago in 1610, Monteverdi's choral masterpiece is a glorious summation of the different styles of Venetian church music of the 1600s. Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his Monteverdi Choir make the most of the vast spaces of the Royal Albert Hall to perform the music with which they made their Proms debut in 1968.

The Glasgow Boys

Highly acclaimed author and comedian A L Kennedy stalks the industrial past of her home city, investigating a group of trailblazing young painters who achieved international fame and encouraged Glasgow's new, brassy tycoons to nurture a contemporary art scene that continues to thrive today.
A portrait of a city as much as these painters, A L Kennedy's witty, insightful journey takes her deep into the history and cultural soul of Glasgow. She talks to leading biographer of the Boys, Roger Bilcliffe, to establish how the city's low cultural standing galvanized the painters' defiant attitude, a spirit which would later inspire Charles Rennie Mackintosh and countless others. Legendary Glasgow author and artist Alasdair Gray describes the unexpected inspiration to be drawn from the great industrial heritage, while painter Sandy Moffat makes a moving case for the enduring relevance of the Boys.

Today, Glasgow's vibrant arts scene is taken for granted, and it churns out Turner Prize nominees virtually every year. But a century ago, it was unheard of for the city's artists to be taken seriously beyond their heavily industrialized home town, especially in the face of Edinburgh's staid cultural elitism. Taking their cue from the radical French realists, James Guthrie and John Lavery, among others, produced some of the most influential paintings ever to come out of the country, and established the city's art community for generations to come.

Land and Sea and Sky

Over the Water: Writing Belonging

The young Liverpool dramatist and singer Lizzie Nunnery brings an urban eye to bear on the meeting of land and sea and sky in her essay 'Over the Water: Writing Belonging'. Recorded by water, at the pierhead on the Mersey and on the streets of Liverpool, her essay recalls the pleasure of growing up in a city with beaches which she took for granted, then her growing awarenes of how the city grew from the meeting of the land and the sea, how the traffic of people and ideas created the identity of the place, the character of the people, and her own sensibility as a writer.


FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00tmm32)
The Family Elan

Mary Ann Kennedy with music from across the globe, plus a studio session with Yorkshire-based band The Family Elan.

The Family Elan are led by bouzouki player Chris Hladowski and his sister, the singer Stephanie Hladowski, who both also play with other bands such as A Hawk and a Hacksaw. Their chief influence is traditional music from Eastern Europe, and they freely adapt old songs heard from field recordings into new compositions, giving them a kind of 21st-century Polish-Yorkshire slant. Their new album 'Bow Low Bright Glow' came out earlier this year.
