The Genius of Mozart

Opera Day

A Mozart selection for breakfast-time listening. With Martin Handley.


SAT 10:00 Kiri Te Kanawa's Favourite Mozart Arias (b00x1r64)
Dame Kiri Te Kanawa made her break through as a Mozart singer and went on to become a world-renowned Countess, Donna Elvira and Fiordiligi. She talks about the Mozart arias that mean the most to her, including music from The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Cosi fan tutte.
(Produced by Clive Portbury).


SAT 11:00 Mozart by Mackerras (b00x89tr)
The Australian conductor Sir Charles Mackerras, who died last July, was one of the most ardent advocates of Mozart's music in modern times. He left behind a wealth of recordings. As part of our The Genius of Mozart season, Petroc Trelawny plays a selection of Mackerras's Mozart and asks what made him such a great Mozartean.


SAT 12:00 Donald Macleod's Mozart (b00x1rc6)
Opera

Donald Macleod maps out Mozart's life-story, and tries to fathom why for him Mozart's music will always remain a constant companion. Today Donald mixes two of his favourite passions: Mozart and Opera, and selects music from Zaide, The Seraglio, Idomeneo, Don Giovanni, Cosi and The Marriage of Figaro.


SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00x1rc8)
The Genius of Mozart

BBC NOW, Jennifer Pike

Catrin Finch presents a live concert from BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff as part of Radio 3's celebration of The Genius of Mozart.

Violinist Jennifer, a recent graduate of Radio 3's New Generation Artist scheme, joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for Mozart's fifth and final violin concerto. Mozart's prowess as a violinist is often overshadowed by his pianistic virtuosity, but it's quite possible he wrote this concerto to play himself. One early soloist commented that the middle movement was 'too clever by half', but it's the finale that's catches most attention today, as it suddenly lurches into the 'Turkish' (or more accurately Hungarian-inspired) style - and the nickname has stuck.

Conductor Garry Walker is no stranger to Mozart, last season he visited the St David's Festival in West Wales with the orchestra, taking the 'Haffner' symphony. Today he conducts the players in Symphony No. 25, written when Mozart was a teenager. It's his first symphony in a minor key, and maybe the passion and turbulence we hear in the outer movements a young man struggling out of his adolescence.

SAT 14:00 Opera on 3 (b00x1rfr)
Cosi fan Tutte

Presented by Martin Handley

Sir Colin Davis conducts an exceptional recording of one of Mozart's wittiest operas, with a superlative cast, including Kiri Te Kanawa and Agnes Baltsa. Davis's finely polished account of the score deftly balances the humanity, irony, pain and humour of Da Ponte's complex battle of the sexes.

When two army officers claim to be certain that their fiancés will be eternally faithful, Don Alfonso cannot resist the urge to prove them wrong. It will take him only a day, he claims, to prove that these - like all women - are fickle. His wager is accepted, and from then on, things get complicated.

Ferrando ..... Stuart Burrows
Guglielmo ..... Thomas Allan
Don Alfonso ..... Richard Van Allan
Fiordiligi ..... Kiri Te Kanawa
Dorabella ..... Agnes Baltsa

SAT 17:30 The Early Music Show (b00x1rft)
Mozart and Metastasio

As part of the "Genius of Mozart" season, Catherine Bott presents a programme focusing on the Italian poet, librettist and moralist Pietro Trapassi, aka Metastasio, through Mozart's four settings of his texts. Two of these texts, 'Il sogno di Scipione' and 'Lucio Silla' (written by Giovanni de Gamerra and adapted by Metastasio), were written in 1771 when Mozart was still only 16, in between trips to Italy. Metastasio wrote his text 'Il re Pastore' in 1751, and it had been set 14 times before Mozart chose it. The fourth of Mozart's settings turned out to be one of his final works, 'La Clemenza di Tito', written in the summer of 1791; twelve weeks after the first performance Mozart was dead. Catherine Bott reflects on the settings of these texts and plays music from each of the four works.


SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b00x1rfw)
Mozart Double Bill: Le nozze di Figaro and La clemenza di Tito

Donald Macleod presents Le Nozze di Figaro, K492, with the Chicago Lyric Opera conducted by Andrew Davis, and La Clemenza di Tito, K621, conducted by Rene Jacobs.

Le Nozze di Figaro, K492

When Count Almaviva decides to exercise his droit de seigneur and sample the delights of Figaro's bride-to-be, Susanna, he sets off a train of events which do not make his life any easier.

La Clemenza di Tito, K621

Based on the life of the Roman Emperor Titus, the work was commissioned to celebrate the coronation of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor as King of Bohemia, in September 1791. At the core of the opera is Vitellia's plot to assassinate Titus, but there is also unrequited love, a great deal of intrigue, and some heart-stopping reversals of fortune along the way. In this acclaimed recording, Rene Jacobs conducts an all-star cast.

The Genius of Mozart

BBC Philharmonic, Nicholas Kraemer, Ben Johnson

The BBC Philharmonic and conductor Nicholas Kraemer take us on a miniature trip to the opera, beginning with the overture to one of Mozart's earliest operatic triumphs, Lucio Silla, composed for the Milan court when Mozart was sixteen. New Generation Artist Ben Johnson contributes three arias Mozart wrote to show off the genius of individual voices in other composer's operas, as well as a licenza praising the Archbishop of Salzburg on the anniversary of his enthronement. A rare version of a Divertimento written in Mozart's downtime in Milan on an earlier visit completes the programme.

The programme also looks at Mozart's re-orchestrations of some of Handel's large-scale works such as "Acis & Galatea", and how some Baroque-like features found their way into pieces such as "The Magic Flute", the Requiem and the "Jupiter" Symphony.


SUN 15:00 Tom Service on Mozart (b00x1s9m)

As part of the "Genius of Mozart" season, Stephen Johnson visits Clandon Park House in Surrey to study the nuances found in Mozart's most famous serenade - "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik". He's joined by the architect Jonathan Foyle to discuss the links between Mozart's musical structures and the Palladian-style architecture of the period, and by the historian Steven Parissien who'll be giving his insight into the social history of the time and into the European-wide concept of 18th century sensibility. Musical extracts will be played by The Doric Quartet and double-bass player Tim Gibbs.


SUN 18:00 Herr Mozart Presents... (b00x1s9r)
One of the most successful periods of Mozart's life was the first half of the 1780s, when, having made his permanent move to Vienna, he appeared before the public there many times as a composer and pianist. The formats of these concerts were different from those of today; a symphony, for instance, could be broken up and interspersed with vocal items, keyboard improvisations and examples of the genre which Mozart brought to a new level of sophistication at this time - the piano concerto. Mozart scholar Cliff Eisen explores the atmosphere of Mozart's Viennese concerts, and revisits one in particular, the benefit concert given at the Burgtheater on 11 March 1783 for his sister-in-law, the singer Aloisa Lange

The Genius of Mozart

Mozart - Die Zauberflote

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Claudio Abbado's celebrated recording of The Magic Flute K. 620, with René Pape as Sarastro, Christoph Strehl as Tamino, Dorothea Röschmann as Pamina and Hanno Müller-Brachmann as Papageno. The queen of the night is interpreted by Erika Mikósa.

When Tamino, a young prince, finds himself lost and pursued by a snake, he invokes the mercy of the gods, and faints. Three veiled maidens appear, and quickly notice how sweet and handsome the young man is. They compete amongst themselves for the pleasure of looking after him - and so begins Mozart's final opera, a mix of both philosophical parable and music-hall comedy.

Wednesday - James Jolly

James Jolly introduces great Mozart recordings and talks with his guest Sir John Eliot Gardiner. As well as pioneering the use of original instruments in historically-informed performances of Mozart's music, Gardiner has conducted many Mozart productions in opera houses using modern instruments. He reflects on the changes in approach to performing Mozart's music, especially in the opera house, the particular challenges of dramatic pacing in Mozart's operas, and the similarities and differences in approach between conducting Mozart's operas and his concert music.

1791

Donald Macleod maps out Mozart's life-story, plays many of his favourite works and trys to fathom why for him Mozart's music will always remain a constant companion. Today Donald takes a broad view of Mozart's last year - 1791, a year that began full of promise but transformed into one of the saddest in the history of music.


WED 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00x1smq)
The Genius of Mozart

St James's Baroque - Mozart Sacred Music

BBC Singers
St James's Baroque
Paul Brough conductor

Live from St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, London
Presented by Catherine Bott

Ave verum K618
God is our refuge K20
Kyrie K33
Church Sonata in D major K69
Veni Sancte Spiritus K47
Laudate Dominum K339
Church Sonata in C major K328
Mass in C major 'Coronation' K317

The BBC Singers join forces with period-instrument orchestra St James's Baroque for a concert of sacred music from every decade of Mozart's life. The programme ranges from his very first sacred work ('God is our refuge' - composed by the eight-year old Mozart in July 1765 after a visit with his family to the recently-opened British Museum), to one of his last (the 'Ave verum corpus', a deeply serene setting of Latin words which he composed in July 1791, only a few months before his death). In between, comes music from Mozart's years in Salzburg, where he was employed by the city's Prince Archbishop. Mozart spent this period as a liveried servant in the Archbishop's household (higher in rank than the cooks but lower than the valets, as he rather ruefully observed) and his lack of status, combined with the creative restrictions imposed by the Archbishop's preferences in liturgical music, led to the famous bust-up with his princely employer which culminated - the story goes - in Mozart being physically kicked out of the Archbishop's palace. Nonetheless, that period gave rise to some of Mozart's most exquisite sacred music, including, in this concert, the wonderful 'Laudate dominum' from one of his Vespers settings, and the famous Coronation Mass whose final, heartbreaking, Agnus Dei points forward to the music Mozart would later write for one of his most unforgettable operatic characters - the Countess in 'The Marriage of Figaro'.

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00x1smz)
The Genius of Mozart

Music from Mozart's Last Years

Suzy Klein and Petroc Trelawny introduce music from Mozart's last years.

It's fair to say most people know at least something about Mozart's life, for instance that he was a child prodigy and died while writing his Requiem. But is there any fact about Mozart - man or music - you've always wondered about but never dared to ask? Maybe it's about the circumstances of that Requiem or Mozart's fabled skittish personality, or whether he really could write music straight onto the page, almost without thinking.

Well, this evening is your chance.

Dr Cliff Eisen who has been our music consultant on The Genius of Mozart season and is an internationally regarded authority on Mozart will be joining Petroc Trelawny and Suzy Klein on Performance on 3. You'll be able to ask Cliff Eisen your Mozart question live on air or you can email or text.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00td8j5)
George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Man of God

iv) Man of God
Donald Macleod and Suzanne Aspden of Oxford University put Handel's spirtual beliefs under the microscope and explain the circumstances that led to the composer repositioning himself as a composer of oratorios.

If you are in search of a good role model, an example of a life well spent, well navigated, look to George Frideric Handel's seventy-four years. From day one this divinely musical and decisive Saxon instinctively knew where to take himself and who to please.

Donald Macleod is joined by Suzanne Aspden, a Handel expert from Oxford University armed with the latest in Handel scholarship. Faced with hours of Handel's sublime music and the composer's eventful life story they've whisked up a focus on Handel the borrower of his own and others' music - with a look at Agrippina the opera that so impressed Venice, and an electric peformance of Dixit Dominus. They discuss Handel the politician, how the composer was adopted in England and found long-term favour with the new Hanoverian monarchy.

Some of the most arresting moments from Handel's operas Radamisto, Admeto, Partenope, and Ariodante dominate the third programme, a look at Handel the resourceful 'Opera divo'. And with ravishing music from his oratorios Esther, Saul, Samson and Messiah, Handel as 'Man of God' is also exposed, revealing the composer's ability to twist a ban on staging Biblical texts to his advantage.

Today the spirit of Handel lives on and in the final programme 'The Idea of Handel' Donald and Suzanne broadcast 'The Anthem for the Foundling Hospital', the Violin Sonata in D Op.1 and a saucy aria from Semele, as they exhibit how the reputation of this great composer has evolved over the centuries.

THU 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00x8b10)
Northern Sinfonia - Schreker, Elgar, Strauss

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Sir Mark Elder conducts Northern Sinfonia for the first time in a programme of works composed around and during the First World War, within the space of five years. The profound and wistful Cello Concerto, played by one of the great British cellists, Steven Isserlis, was the last major work that Elgar wrote. 'Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme' was composed by Strauss as incidental music for Molière's play of the same name, originally with the ambitious idea of staging it together with the opera Ariadne auf Naxos in the same evening. Strauss included some arrangements of the music of Lully within it. Schreker was one of Vienna's most important composers in the same period, and in this luscious chamber symphony he makes full use of the mere 23 instruments involved.

Schreker: Chamber Symphony
Elgar: Cello Concerto

THU 21:00 Music Planet (b00x31t3)
Oceans

For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go trekking across the globe to bring us music from the peoples of some of the world's remotest regions, visiting many of the places featured in the TV series. This week the focus is on the music of ocean communities.

Galicia: Galicians consider themselves Celts, linked by sea travel with peoples in Northern France, Ireland and Scotland. Lucy Duran meets leading piper Xosé Manuel Budiño, and is invited to the village of Cebreiro for a party celebrating Celtic culture.

Papua New Guinea: To the accompaniment of the villagers, Andy Kershaw sets off on a shark fishing expedition with Blais, the singing shark caller from Tembin Village. Together the try to lure sharks with Blais's unique repertory of shark-calling songs.

Brazil: Lucy Duran visits the coastal city of Salvador da Bahia, the ancient capital of the Camdomblé religion. This is the religion that uses old African customs and languages - it's practised on the seashore looking across to Africa, and the sea and its shells are crucial to the liturgy, and its music too.

Solomon Islands: Andy Kershaw gets the gospel: the Deep Sea Canoe Movement is dedicated to keeping up continuous worship 24 hours a day on the paradise island of Malaita.

Producers: Roger Short and James Parkin.

THU 23:00 The Essay (b00r8cn9)
Land and Sea and Sky

Michael Bird

Michael Bird writes books about the visual arts, so St Ives is a good place to be. In his essay he explores how the constant transformations of what he sees, the land in the light, the weather, the breaking waves, even the people, have a rejuvenating, inspirational impact on him. Bird's essay was recorded in the streets leading down to the water, on Porthmeor Beach, on the cliff path leading to Land's End, along the run he takes to focus his thoughts. Unusually, but importantly, for a writer, he lives where the visual rather than the verbal, takes precedence. In St Ives one sees, then writes, rather than the other way around. And Michael Bird puzzles on his personal jouney, on how he came to be living in the far southwest, where land and sea and sky meet so dramatically.

FRI 19:55 Twenty Minutes (b00x21pk)
A Marginal History

Justin Champion rummages through public and academic libraries to see how the defacing of books over centuries of reading sheds light on the history of reading and information.

We've all been brought up to believe that writing in books is literary sacrilege: small children are still told off for colouring in their own books. How many hearts have sunk when opening a library book to find biro underlining, marginal commentary, or plain simple abuse?

The rules and regulations of public libraries sternly outline the penalties and punishment for such crimes. The modern obsession with the unmarked book has been famously broken by a few notorious readers: Joe Orton and his partner, Kenneth Halliwell, served a four month sentence for defacing library books. In 1959 they began a two year campaign of stealing and defacing books from the Islington public library, then smuggling them back into the stacks, where they shocked and appalled patrons and staff alike.

Surprisingly though this passion for the clean page is a recent cultural attitude: it is a consequence of the increasing commodification of the trade in second hand and rare books - books without marks simply command a greater price. Book dealers used to crop marginalia from their titles to increase their value.

In the past it was different: annotating, marking, and including marginal comments was approved and encouraged. There were handbooks explaining the best way of doing it. Historians of the book have only very recently recognised that these marks in books are the surviving traces of how real readers encountered books.

In A Marginal History, Justin Champion and Bill Sherman look in the margins of some of the intriguing books and manuscripts in the British Library's collection to shed light on this practice of marking books.

Ian McMillan presents Radio 3's celebration of the best writing and performance of all kinds. This week, the best-selling writer of 'The Time Traveler's Wife' Audrey Niffenegger reads a brand new Verb commission. Her latest book is a graphic novel and, as she explains to Ian, she's passionate about the form and about the bookiness of books in general. And, the songwriter, musician, philosopher Sharron Kraus performs work from her new album which mixes the folk traditions of England and Appalachia and discusses the art of songwriting. Poets Susan Wicks and Catherine Smith describe the treasures they found in the store-rooms of the Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery when they and other writers and artists were invited to be inspired for a local project. And, poet, mathematician and lover of the avant garde Ira Lightman assesses haikus found in the Wikileaks cables. They may be haiku in a mathematical sense but are they spiritually true to the form?

Chris Wood

Chris Wood has won awards for his songwriting and his performance, such as BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year, 2009. He is much concerned with English identity and our relationship with the land (his album 'Trespasser' is a musical examination of enclosure as a continuing affront). Exploring such themes Wood draws on the ancient storytelling of traditional song, engages with our very nature in 'Turtle Song' - a new song written for the recent Darwin anniversary - and place (there's even a song about his allotment). He has always lived in Faversham and recorded on location here in Kent's creek, mudflat region, his essay explores how the sea snaking far inland the vast sky and the Dickensian marshes have all shaped his sensibility and concerns.
