London Jazz Festival 2010

Hugh Masekela, The Mahotella Queens

A London Jazz Festival concert featuring some of South Africa's biggest stars. Hugh Masekela has been a master of South African jazz since the 1960s, becoming an international celebrity with his hit 'Grazin' in the Grass'. The Mahotella Queens are of a similar vintage, and can still excite audiences with their high-energy township dance music.

This concert was recorded on the opening night of the 2010 London Jazz Festival. Hugh Masekela learned the trumpet at the age of 14, and by the end of the 1950s was recognised as a top player. In 1960 following the Sharpeville massacre, he left South Africa and settled for a while in the USA. After his 1987 song 'Bring him back home' came true with the release of Nelson Mandela, he returned to South Africa. Now 71, he is still recording and still touring the world.

The Mahotella Queens are young in comparison, forming in 1964. They had a string of hits with the 'King of the groaners' Simon Mahlatini Nkabinde, combining the energy of township 'mbaqanga' music with tight vocal harmonies. The current band members - Hilda, Nobesuthu and Midred - were all in the original 1964 line-up.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b00vkp5t)
Handel's Radamisto

Presented by Donald Macleod

Handel took the theatre-going public of London by storm with this intensely dramatic opera, Radamisto. Set in the ancient kingdom of Thrace, this is a story of nobility in the face of aggression. Radamisto and his wife Zenobia are under siege in the city from the Armenian tyrant Tiridate. Tiridate has his eye on Zenobia as his prize, despite already being married to Polissena, who also happens to be Radamisto's sister. Radamisto's father, Farasmane, has already been captured, and Tiridate's henchman, Tigrane, is under instruction to bring Zenobia to him at all costs. Radamisto himself tries to follow a noble path despite the tumult surrounding him.

Handel brought some of Italy's greatest singers to London for this opera, giving some wonderful arias to his star performers. In this new production from English National Opera, the acclaimed countertenor Lawrence Zazzo takes the title role, and the director David Alden teams up with the experienced Handelian, Laurence Cummings.

Radamisto..... Lawrence Zazzo (counter-tenor)
Zenobia ..... Christine Rice (mezzo soprano)
Tiridate ..... Ryan McKinny (baritone)
Polissena ..... Sophie Bevan (soprano)
Farasmane ..... Henry Waddington (bass)
Tigrane ..... Ailish Tynan (soprano)

Conductor ..... Laurence Cummings

SAT 21:25 Between the Ears (b00lkm83)
A Wireless Revelation

At the back of the Bible hides perhaps the most misunderstood but profoundly influential little book of them all: the Apocalypse of St John, also known as the Book of Revelation. The Apocalypse - which means "unveiling" - is a breathless and intense sequence of visions given to the exiled John on the Aegean island of Patmos, 70 miles or so from Ephesus in what is now Turkey, at the end of the first century AD. Although it's well-known for being a challenging read, Revelation compensates right from the start with an explicit blessing on both reader and listener. Thereafter its twenty-two chapters are packed full of pictures and patterns that have inspired artists and composers (and scientists, kings, and politicians) down the nineteen centuries since it was written: seven seals and seven trumpets, a beast with seven heads and ten horns, a woman with a crown of twelve stars on her head, and a Hallelujah chorus! However, the book also ends with a curse on anyone tampering with its text, so this radiophonic collage presents the complete text from mysterious beginning to epic end - in a communal reading from a number of translations old and new (including echoes of New Testament Greek as well as Mandarin, Arabic, Persian, and Urdu). John Ashenfelter reads from the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible; additional voices include the Reverend Alan Walker, the Reverend Clifford Hill, Ekene Akalawu, Kathryn Knight (presenter), the former Bishop of Rochester Michael Nazir-Ali, and the Reverend Richard Coles. Decorating and illuminating the sacred text as it unfolds are iconic fragments from Handel's Messiah and every movement of Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, as well as choral music by Hildegard of Bingen and Antony Pitts, who also mixed this extended version.

SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b00vkp5w)
Cut & Splice 2010

Episode 3

Robert Worby presents the last of three programmes from Cut & Splice, the electronic music festival co-produced by Hear And Now with Sound And Music.
This year's theme is "Transmission": the use of radio in avant garde music and sound-art.
Performances will include Stockhausen's classic works for radios and instruments, Kurzwellen and Poles For 2, played by Apartment House; a new 4-channel electronic piece, "Like Radio", by Robert Normandeau; and the improvising duo of Ma la Pert (vocalist Jennifer Walshe and violinist Tony Conrad)
(Recorded at Wilton's Music Hall, London).

Karlheinz Stockhausen: Kurzwellen
Simon Limbrick (tam-tam, shortwave radio)
Andrew Sparling (microphone)
Philip Thomas (piano, shortwave radio)
Kerry Yong (synth, shortwave radio)
Anton Lukoszevieze (cello, shortwave radio)
Tim Steiner (sound diffusion)

Programme Note:
Kurzwellen (Shortwaves) was composed in 1968. It is scored for four instrumentalists (each of whom has a shortwave radio), one assistant (the tam tam player's 'microphonist') and a 'sound director'. Shortwave 'events' are culled from the airwaves, emulated by the instrumentalists and then 'processed' according to the score. These processes, performed by the players, are entirely musical and acoustic. Pitches are transposed, durations are elongated, dynamics are shifted and 'segments' (number of attacks in an event) are multiplied and divided. When asked why he was attracted to shortwave radio, Stockhausen shrugged his shoulders and answered "Instant electronic music."

Robert Normandeau: Like Radio
Robert Normandeau (4 channel electronic sound)

Karlheinz Stockhausen: Poles For 2
Frank Gratkowski (sax, shortwave radio)
Anton Lukoszevieze (cello, shortwave radio)
Tim Steiner (sound diffusion)

Programme Note:
In 1970 Stockhausen represented Germany, performing in the German pavilion, at the Expo world fair in Osaka. This was a huge event involving several performances a day for several weeks. So, he needed pieces to perform. Poles for 2 was one of the pieces he composed for that occasion. Using similar principles to Kurzwellen, this piece is scored for two players with shortwave radios and a 'sound director' whose part is very detailed compared with Kurzwellen and the other pieces composed for Osaka. Stockhausen referred to these pieces, composed around this time, as 'process' pieces (not to be confused with Steve Reich's idea of process) because the scores notate musical activity rather than precisely what is heard.

SUN 00:00 Jazz Library (b00j0g0b)
Brad Mehldau

Singer Gwyneth Herbert has proved herself an insightful commentator on the recordings of fellow vocalists on Jazz Library, but in this week's programme she shares her enthusiasm for the pianist Brad Mehldau, who is one of the most challenging and innovative of contemporary jazz players. With a repertoire ranging from Broadway songs to the works of contemporary rock players, his music seldom stands still. He is a romantic player in the grand tradition of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, but also a fearless experimenter with time, and musical structure.

Gwyneth Herbert joins Alyn Shipton to pick Mehldau's finest recordings, as a soloist, with his trio and with the bands of Lee Konitz and Charles Lloyd.

Brad Mehldau performs at the 2010 London Jazz Festival.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00vkpcp)
Walking with Freud

100 years on, composer David Matthews and psychoanalyst Anthony Cantle retrace the walk that Mahler and Freud famously took around the Dutch town of Leiden.

On 26th August 1910, Gustav Mahler took a four hour walk with Sigmund Freud. Mahler's marriage to Alma was in tatters and, on the edge of a breakdown, he'd telegraphed Freud asking for an urgent consultation.
Freud was on holiday with his family in Leiden, Holland and asked Mahler to make the journey from Vienna to Leiden, which he duly did.

These two great Viennese Jews met for the only documented time in their lives in Leiden. They walked around the city for 4 hours and in that time, Mahler poured his heart out to Freud.

In this last summer of his life, Mahler had discovered that his wife Alma was having an affair with the architect Walter Gropius. This discovery seemed to totally unhinge Mahler. There are descriptions of Alma taking trays of food to him in his composing hut and finding him lying on the floor weeping his heart out. And he wrote a letter telling of how he stood at Alma's bedside night after night listening to the sound of her breathing.

And throughout this agonising period, Mahler wrote the sketches for his 10th Symphony. The music is highly autobiographical and much of its content reflects Mahler's extreme anxiety about Alma's betrayal and the future of their marriage, but it ends (in Mahler's draft) with a passionate reaffirmation of love.

The 10th Symphony remained unfinished at Mahler's death the following year. David Matthews helped with the orchestration of Deryck Cooke's performing version of the Symphony.

In this programme, David Matthews and Anthony Cantle visit Leiden 100 years on, to walk and talk together about this tantalising episode which is close to both of their hearts. Not only do they retell the story of the meeting and give it a context, but as a composer and psychoanalyst, they also bring their own professional and personal insights to the story.

David Matthews is a British composer of mostly orchestral, chamber, choral, vocal, and piano works that have been performed throughout the world; he is also active as a scholar and writer.

Anthony Cantle is a Fellow of the Institute of Psycho-Analysis, London and a practising Psychoanalyst. He's also a member of the UK Gustav Mahler Society.

Producer, Rosie Boulton.

Pilgrimage to Drottningholm

i) Pilgrimage to Drottningholm

King Gustavus III of Sweden, 'The Theatre King' (1746-1792) was a sort of Louis XIV of his country, an actor manqué and opera buff. Such was his thespian passion that his advisers had on occasions to shepherd him away from the grease paint back to running the country! Over Gustavus's turbulent reign, which was supported by France, he oversaw a flowering of music bringing into Sweden first-rate German composers. Joseph Martin Kraus, for both Joseph Haydn and Gluck 'a genius', was recruited along with Johann Gottlieb Naumann. They joined a host of other composers, librettists, dancers and linguists to harvest a crop of the first Swedish language operas, many of which were first performed at the Drottningholm Opera House. Today Donald Macleod leaves Stockholm by steam-boat to fulfill a long-held dream to visit this treasure of an opera house suspended in time and, bar the odd stage rope or two, exactly as it was more than 200 years ago. The theatre, part of the Swedish Royal Court, is still used and in today's episode Donald's shown around by the General Manager Per Forsström and Artistic Director Mark Tatlow.

Soprano Elisabeth Söderström described it as the 'inside of a Stradivarius'. For many singers, performing classical opera at the Drottningholm Opera House is a Eureka moment where the logic behind every scene- change, every pairing of instruments, every reckless ride in a cloud-machine becomes wonderfully clear. A breathtaking working museum of the Gustavian era, the theatre exactly replicates the candle light of the period and still uses all the orginal auditorium seats and stage machinery.

This week Donald Macleod is joined in Drottningholm, West of Stockholm, by mezzo Anne Sophie von Otter, soprano Susanne Rydén, former director of the Drottningholm Theatre Museum, Inga Lewenhaupt, Per Forsström, General Manager, and Artistic Director Mark Tatlow. Together they explore the fairy tale of the rediscovery of the Opera House in the early 20th century. They discuss the great influence Gluck had on the gathering of composers King Gustavus III signed up including the remarkable Joseph Martin Kraus. How, at a time when Sweden's old foe Denmark was still at large, Gustavus III commissioned Johann Gottlieb Naumann to write 'Gustaf Wasa' - a tub-thumping nationalistic opera.

The arcane world of on-stage gesture promoted by Gustavus III is also revealed along with a detailed look at the glorious assembly of stage-machines and trap doors at the Theatre.

In the final programme Donald plays an excerpt from this summer's production at Drottningholm of Mozart's Don Giovanni. He's then joined at the Riddarholmskyrkan church in Stockholm by Christian Buchberger of the Swedish Royal Courts to discuss the grisly end of King Gustavus III a theatrical man in life as well as death.

Michael Holroyd, Bridget Riley, Thilo Sarrazin, Garry Trudeau

The critic Sarah Kent joins Philip to review the National Gallery's new exhibition of work by the abstract artist, Bridget Riley.

There's a discussion on immigration, multiculturalism and integration, looking at the controversial ideas contained in a best-selling book in Germany. Written by a former banker, Thilo Sarrazin, 'Germany Abolishes Itself' has been acclaimed for 'opening an important debate' and denounced as 'racist'. Philip is joined by the outgoing editor of Prospect, David Goodhart, and Cornelia Fuchs, London Correspondent for Stern magazine.

And it's forty years since the cartoonist Garry Trudeau began his Doonesbury strip. He talks to Philip Dodd about how cartoons have evolved since he began Doonesbury in the late 60s.

MON 23:00 The Essay (b00mw9g9)

Voltaire and the Voices of the Enlightenment

You don't have to be a patriotic Frenchman to consider Voltaire the presiding genius of the European Enlightenment. A brilliant, caustic and prolific polemicist, he left behind some 15 million written words - twenty times the length of the Bible - in almost every literary form, from plays, poems and novels to pamphlets, letters and essays. His subjects included philosophy, science, travel, religion and civil liberties and, by the time he died, aged 84 in 1778, his breathtaking output and canny media manipulation had made him the most famous writer in the world. Even today, his thoughts on religion, tolerance and human rights can seem strikingly contemporary and provocative. And many people may be familiar with his words without realizing it: famous Voltaire sayings include "in the best of all possible worlds", "we must cultivate the garden" and "if God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him", though his much quoted rallying cry for tolerant multiculturalism: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it" turns out, in fact, to have been invented on Voltaire's behalf by a female English biographer in 1906.

Professor Nicholas Cronk, director of the Voltaire Foundation in Oxford, introduces the great man, places him within the context of other Enlightenment thinkers, and celebrates his timeless satire on the human condition, the novel Candide, which was published 250 years ago.

London Jazz Festival 2010

Charles Lloyd Quartet and Norma Winstone Trio

Jez Nelson presents one of the most anticipated performances of the London Jazz Festival, featuring American saxophonist Charles Lloyd. Mirrors, Lloyd's recent release on the ECM label, has been acclaimed as a highlight of his forty-plus year career. And his new quartet, featuring Jason Moran, one of the premier pianists of his generation, drummer Eric Harland and bassist Reuben Rogers, is possibly Lloyd's finest since his seminal 1960s group with Jack DeJohnette, Keith Jarrett and Cecil McBee.

Opening the show is a set from British vocalist Norma Winstone with her European trio featuring German reeds-player Klaus Gesing and Italian pianist Glauco Venier. Performing music from their latest album 'Stories Yet To Tell' the trio weave improvised lines and collective compositions that draw influences far and wide, from medieval ballads to Wayne Shorter.

TUE 23:00 The Essay (b00mw9p8)

Voltaire and England

Series exploring the work of the French writer and philosopher Voltaire.

Professor Nicholas Cronk, director of the Voltaire Foundation at the University of Oxford, explores how Voltaire's encounter with English culture both influenced the writer personally and had far-reaching consequences for Enlightenment thinking generally.

He explains why Voltaire came to England in the first place and considers why the book of essays he wrote - Letters Concerning the English Nation - has been described as 'the first bomb thrown at the ancient regime' - a praise of the country and a covert criticism pre-revolutionary France.

With his vivid and often highly contemporary observations on religion, business, politics, science, philosophy and literature, Voltaire's book on England is as striking today as it was to both French and English readers when it was first published in 1733.

Reader: Simon Russell Beale.

Mahler was more famous in his lifetime as a conductor than as a composer and today's programme, presented by Louise Fryer, includes two works by Beethoven, played in Mahler's own performing versions. The first is an 'amplified' string quartet and the programme ends with Mahler's re-orchestration of the choral 9th symphony. The programme also includes two colourful scores, both of which Mahler conducted several times.

Presented by Catherine Bott.

Continuing their Mahler Cycle at the Symphony Hall, conductor Andris Nelsons with his City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra offer their rendition of the Austrian composer's Symphony No. 5 - a tale of life and death, from the opening harrowing funereal trumpet solo, to the very last reassuring chords. First though, Judith Weir's Shakespeare-inspired Storm, performed by the very choir and conductor who premiered it back in 1997.

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00vyyh6)
Matthew Sweet's guests include the grumpy old man of American satire, P.J. O'Rourke; one of the leading practitioners of relational aesthetics, Philippe Parreno; and the architect Rab Bennetts, who has re-designed the Royal Shakespeare Company's home at Stratford-upon-Avon. All three may figure in Matthew's dissection of what it means to be a gentleman -- an inquiry which follows an assertion from none other than Mr Darcy's avatar, the actor Colin Firth, who claims there is no such thing.

WED 23:00 The Essay (b00mw9st)

Voltaire, Sarkozy and the Burqa Debate

In a series on the great thinkers of the European Enlightenment originally broadcast in 2009, the French journalist Agnes Poirier imagines a dialogue between Voltaire and President Sarkozy on the issue of legislating about the wearing of the burqa in public.

Nicolas Sarkozy is alone at night in the gilded rooms of the Elysee Palace. Carla Bruni is out at a gig with Mick Jagger but the President has something rather more serious on his mind......

In July 2009, the French President Nicolas Sarkozy set up a Parliamentary committee to consider a possible ban in France of the burqa, the full Islamic dress. Agnes Poirier imagines the ruminations of the tired President: what would Voltaire, the father of "laicite" - the uniquely French interpretation of secularism - say on the matter? Would he ban the burqa? Sarkozy drifts off to sleep and finds himself in the oak-panelled library at the Chateau de Ferney, home of Voltaire.

In a witty and thought-provoking tour de force of an Essay, French journalist Agnes Poirier brings Voltaire and his views firmly into the contemporary realm in an examination of one of the most vexed debates in France today.

French born Agnès Poirier moved to London in 1995 and started writing as an independent journalist for Le Monde (1996) and then for Le Figaro as UK arts correspondent (1997-2001). Between 2001 and 2006, she was a political correspondent and film critic for Libération.

Today, she is a UK editor for French and Italian weeklies Le Nouvel Obs, La Vie, L'Espresso and a regular contributor to the BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Al Jazeera on French politics and films. She is also a regular commentator for The Guardian, The Independent On Sunday, The New Statesman and The Observer.

Free Thinking 2010

Violence - A New Perspective

"Violence - A New Perspective", a lecture delivered at this year's Free Thinking festival of ideas, by Lord Blair, former head of the Metropolitan Police.

Lord Blair of Boughton, as Sir Ian Blair, was Britain's most senior police officer, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police from February 2005 until the end of 2008. His tenure included the London Bombings of 2005 and the controversial shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes. But he started his professional life as a constable on the beat in London's Soho - and has gone onto write several treatises on the future of policing.

Having dealt with crime and policing up to the very highest level for over 35 years, Lord Blair comes to BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking festival of ideas to reflect on the part that violence plays in human behaviour: its origins, effects and how we as a society should deal with it.

Night Waves presenter Philip Dodd chairs the event, recorded in front of an audience at the Sage Gateshead as part of BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking festival of ideas 2010.

Producer: Anthony Denselow.

THU 23:00 The Essay (b00mwb3q)

Voltaire and Religion

The cataclysmic Lisbon earthquake of 1755 in which tens of thousands of people died is Professor Simon Blackburn's starting point for an examination of Voltaire's views on religion and belief. The event occurred on November 1st, All Saints Day, which meant that the churches in one of the godliest cities in Catholic Europe were all packed while the brothels were relatively empty. Where, Voltaire wondered, was divine providence in all this?

Simon Blackburn carefully explores not only Voltaire's coruscating views on the corrupt and powerful established church but also the complex question of his lingering faith. Above all, he examines the practical effect of Voltaire's ideas, celebrating the role of the Enlightenment in replacing the altars and thrones of an older Europe with the largely secular constitutional democracies that followed.

Simon Blackburn is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cambridge.

FRI 19:40 Twenty Minutes (b00w15zw)
The American poet Emily Dickinson was very reclusive and spent most of her adult life in her room in Amherst, Massachusetts where, after her death, her extraordinary poems were discovered. When Aaron Copland was composing the settings of her poems that are being performed in this evening's concert, he spent many hours there trying to capture something of the spirit of Emily Dickinson. Someone who knows the room well is the poet Fred D'Aguiar, who lived in Amherst for several years. In tonight's Twenty Minutes he reflects on Emily Dickinson's room, the place where he himself writes, and the significance of "The Poet's Room".

FRI 23:00 The Essay (b00mwb88)

Voltaire's Library and Legacy

When Voltaire died in 1778 at the grand old age of 84, he was the most famous writer in the world. Whatever his doubts about the Christian afterlife, his own immortality was assured. In this fifth and final Essay on Voltaire, Professor Nicholas Cronk explores the legacy of this greatest of Enlightenment figures. He starts with the extraordinary story of the removal of Voltaire's library, book by book - and there were some seven thousand of them - from his chateau in France all the way to St Petersburg, where Catherine the Great planned to build a sort of Voltaire theme park. He explores Voltaire's celebrity status, both before and after his death, and goes on to discuss how his ideas - about politics, about religion, about tolerance - continue to resonate today. He concludes with a poignant illustration of how, in the true spirit of the Enlightenment, writers continue to debate with Voltaire and, in so doing, perpetuate his legacy.

Professor Nicholas Cronk, director of the Voltaire Foundation in Oxford.
