SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b011l7d6)
Music of the King James Bible

The Revd Richard Coles assesses the influence that the King James Bible has had on music during the past 400 years. With the help of composers, writers and musicians he follows the trail of the King James translation from madrigals to missionaries and from Handel to hip-hop.

He considers the problems and rewards of setting the sometimes-difficult language of the 1611 version in choral anthems and oratorios. But he also tracks its journey into the American gospel tradition and discovers its central importance in the lyrics of Bob Dylan.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b011j6g8)
Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music 2011

The Formidable Virtuosi

Lucie Skeaping presents highlights of a concert given by violinist Enrico Gatti and keyboard player Fabio Ciofini, recorded at this year's Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music. The Festival's theme explores music in Europe from the Hanseatic north to the Adriatic south; the repertoire in this programme reflects that theme and includes virtuoso violin and keyboard compositions by composers such as Johann Schop and Pandolfo Mealli.


SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b011cjt4)
Ebene Quartet

The French members of the Ebene Quartet are as at home in jazz and comtemporary music as they are in classical, but today's live Wigmore recital is firmly mainstream, with music by Mozart and Borodin's tuneful second quartet.

Born in Guinea into a family of virtuoso balafon players, Lassana Diabaté moved as a young man to Bamako in the early 1990s. He plays the 22-key xylophone of the Mandé griots, and has appeared on albums by Salif Keita, Bassekou Kouyate, and Kasse Mady Diabaté, among others, and has been a long-standing member of Toumani Diabaté's Symmetric Orchestra.

Lucy is also joined by writers Sue Steward and John L Walters to discuss new World Music releases and look at what's on offer at this summer's festivals.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Library (b011j6gd)
Phineas Newborn Jr

Phineas Newborn Jr. was one of the finest pianists in jazz history, but his short career was dogged by physical and mental illness and he is now a somewhat obscure figure. In the wake of several recent reissues of Newborn's work, Brian Priestley joins Alyn Shipton to pick the highlights and to reappraise this largely forgotten genius of the piano.


SAT 17:00 Jazz Record Requests (b011j6gg)
Geoffrey Smith presents a selection of listeners' jazz requests with McCoy Tyner on sizzling form in Blue Bossa alongside a starry array of styles from Bill Evans to Woody Herman.


SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b011j6gj)
Weinberg's The Portrait

The Jewish composer Moisey (Mieczyslaw) Weinberg was born in Poland, but fled from the Nazis to Russia where he became a close friend of Shostakovich. However, today his music is much less well known than that of his contemporaries. His 3-act opera The Portrait is based on a short story by Nikolai Gogol, and tells the cautionary tale of the painter Chartkov who yearns for fame and fortune until he acquires a portrait which brings him exactly that. Blinded by the attentions of the rich and famous he betrays his artistic integrity and, distraught at his own actions, resorts to desperate measures.

This new production by Opera North is directed by David Poutney, a leading figure in the revival of Weinberg's music. Acclaimed tenor Paul Nilon takes the lead role of Chartkov and the Orchestra of Opera North is conducted by Rossen Gergov.

Presented by Christopher Cook with David Nice, an expert on Russian music.

Chartkov ..... Paul Nilon (tenor)
Liza ..... Katherine Broderick (soprano)
Nikita ..... Richard Burkhard (baritone)
Professor of Fine Arts/Journalist/Art Dealer/Landlady/Earl ..... Peter Savidge (baritone)

Orchestra of Opera North conducted by Rossen Gergov.


SAT 20:35 Night Music (b011ksc7)
Weinberg from Wyastone Leys

Chamber music by one of the 20th century's forgotten musical stars, performed at the Wyastone Leys concert hall in the Monmouthshire countryside. Moisey (Mieczyslaw) Weinberg's Jewish heritage meant that his career was all but destroyed, first in Poland then in exile in the Soviet Union. Only now is his work re-emerging as a worthy counterpart to the music of Shostakovich and Prokofiev.

Weinberg: Piano Quintet op.18
Kopelman Quartet, Elizaveta Kopelman (piano)

repeat.


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b011j6gl)
Playing the Form

The Form in Tai Chi is a set number of precise moves which Tai Chi participants play in sequence. Each move has a martial application although Tai Chi is often practised more for healing and meditative purposes. Many of the moves have wonderfully evocative names such as Embrace Tiger Return to Mountain, White Crane Spreads its Wings, Grasp Sparrow's Tail.

In this programme Westerners describe ways in which playing the Tai Chi Form has, over time, changed their lives. Murray took it up initally to heal damage he'd caused to his back from being a baker. Alec started in order to overcome shyness. Johkim began when both of her parents died and she wanted to change the direction of her life. Bruce Frantzis describes the way in which playing Tai Chi healed his broken back after a car accident. Over time, Playing the Form altered the path of each of their lives.

There is a sense that the Short Form is being played throughout this programme, with accompanying soundtrack from composer Simon Hall.

Producer Rosie Boulton.

SUNDAY 29 MAY 2011

SUN 00:00 Jazz Library (b00rxbp8)
Al Grey

Trombonist Al Grey (1925 - 2000) was one of the most distinctive soloists in big band jazz, working with many of the most famous swing orchestras. In an archive interview, recorded just before his death 11 years ago, Al selects his key recordings with, among others, Count Basie, Lionel Hampton and Dizzy Gillespie.

With his gap-toothed grin, pith helmet and extrovert trombone style, Al Grey was one of the most colourful characters in jazz. He and Alyn Shipton first met when Radio 3 broadcast Lionel Hampton's Golden Men of Jazz, for whom Al was musical director. They kept in touch, and not long before Al's death in March 2000, Alyn visited him at his home in Great Neck Long Island to pick the trombonist's favourite recordings from his voluminous catalogue.

Max Beesley

Michael Berkeley's guest this week is the Manchester-born actor Max Beesley, who made his name in the 1997 TV mini-series 'The History of Tom Jones' and has gone on to star in major TV series including 'Bodies', 'Hotel Babylon', 'Survivors' , 'The Last Enemy', and 'Mad Dogs' (with Philip Glenister, John Simm and Marc Warren). He recently appeared with Ashley Jensen in the ITV drama 'The Reckoning'.

Born into a musical family (his mother was a jazz singer and his father a professional jazz drummer), Max was a pupil at Chetham's School of Music, studied percussion at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and pursued a career as a musician before turning to acting. He has toured as percussionist/keyboard/backing vocals with George Michael, Robbie Williams, Take That and Chaka Khan among others.

Max Beesley is passionate about music, and his eclectic choices include keyboard pieces by Bach and Liszt, a Chopin prelude arranged for cello and piano by Aaron Copland, Elly Ameling singing Schubert's 'Ave Maria', part of the 'Dies irae' from Mozart's Requiem, 'The Shrove-Tide Fair' from Stravinsky's ballet 'Petrushka', music from his own soundtrack to the film 'The Emperor's Wife', and Pat Metheny's 'Third Wind' from the album 'Still Life Talking'.

Halle - Handel, Mozart, Britten

Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé play Handel, Mozart's Symphony No 39 and Britten's Spring Symphony.

English poetry - from the 13th to the 20th century, including the familiar 'Summer is icumen in' - is illustrated with brilliant choral and orchestral effects including a whistling children's choir, cow horn and merry cuckoo. Handel's elegant and joyful concerto for strings, with two groups of wind instruments, and one of Mozart's finest symphonies, his late and lovely No.39, complete this delightful concert to celebrate spring.

Sibelius - Symphony No 4

Sibelius wrote his 4th Symphony in 1910/11, a period of great darkness for the composer. He had recently undergone an operation to remove a cancerous tumour from his throat, and he seems to have been convinced that the cancer had spread. The operation also meant that for two years he had to do without his two main emotional props: alcohol and tobacco. It was also a terrible time outside of Sibelius's personal life, the world was hurtling towards the great war and closer to home, Finland was still recovering from the previous century's famine during which starving Scandinavians had had to eat the bark of trees to survive. On top of all this turmoil, in the musical world, Sibelius felt profoundly challenged by Schoenberg's opening up of the world of atonality. Stephen Johnson and the BBC Philharmonic conducted by Petri Sakari explore this intense masterpiece, regarded by many as the greatest work Sibelius ever wrote.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b011ks3p)
A Movement Beyond Dance

The dance critic Judith Mackrell believes dance is now going through one of the most exciting periods of its history - exploding with possibilities and merging with many other art forms. It's now normal to see choreographers collaborating with film makers, visual artists and playwrights and they come together from all over the world. Audience figures, even in recessionary times, remain impressive and many young and diverse people are flocking to see new and challenging work. Mackrell examines why so many are turning to new forms of dance and considers the dangers of the range and speed of change. She travels to the Venice Contemporary Dance Festival to see the most experimental and diverse work being created today and meets with choreographers, audiences and dance programmers such as Alistair Spalding, artistic director at the Sadler's Wells theatre.

She asks whether with so many art forms merging with dance, with technology playing a more dominant role than ever and so many cultures colliding where does this leave dance now? And she asks whether despite the diversity of the genre, it remains ultimately about the power and beauty of the moving human body?

First broadcast in May 2011.

"Roy Goodman's enthusiasm never fails to inspire and energise those in front of him". This week's Artist of the Week on Classical Collection is the early music specialist Roy Goodman who turned sixty in January. The Englishman is well known for his work as founder of the Brandenburg Consort, co-founder of The Parley of Instruments and, for twelve years, as Principal Conductor of the Hanover Band. Success came early, when at just twelve, Goodman achieved international fame with King's College Choir as the boy soloist in Allegri's Miserere [in Wednesday's programme]. He went on to become one of Europe's leading first violinists or concertmasters, playing under leading conductors from Frans Bruggen to Sir Simon Rattle. As what has been called "probably the most active independent freelance conductor in Europe", Goodman has made over 120 recordings and today's performances showcase some of his strongest period-instrument work: a full of character reading of Haydn's Le Matin symphony and an excitingly brisk interpretation of Bach's fifth Brandenburg Concerto.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b011jxr5)
Gustav Mahler (1860-1911)

Episode 1

There are so many versions of Gustav Mahler that you can pick your own: the ultimate visionary who slipped mysteriously into obscurity for almost a century, the conducting genius recreated in a Ken Russell film, or perhaps the mystical figure re-imagined in the works of jazz musicians and electronic composers. And then there's one of the most fascinating Mahlers of them all: the one portrayed by his wife Alma in a famously controversial yet compelling biography.

This week Donald Macleod explores this alluring source, and with it the last decade of the composer's life - the 'Alma' years. It's a portrait which says as much about the biographer as her subject. We meet a seductress, magnetically drawn to the greatest artists of her time, and who admitted openly that her love was more for Mahler's creative powers than anything else. But she was also an essential part of Mahler's life, helping to create a stable background for a man utterly obsessed with music both as composer and conductor.

Through her, we glimpse Mahler's many passions and foibles: his quest for physical fitness, his dedication to his home city of Vienna despite the open hostility it returned him, and his emotional frailties which led him to a famed consultation with Sigmund Freud. We see Alma's weaknesses to, not least her marital infidelity which rocked their marriage in Mahler's last years.

The music includes many of his most impassioned works: the fateful 'hammer blows' of the Symphony no.6, the emotional devastation of the Kindertotenlieder encapsulating Mahler's response to the death of his brother in childhood, and the gargantuan 'Symphony of a Thousand' written in a flurry of emotion at his composition retreat.

There's also a rare chance to hear Alma Mahler's own songs, kept from publication until Mahler encouraged her to release them at the very end of his career. And we also hear from a landmark BBC broadcast, the first presentation of the posthumously completed Symphony no.10, a programme which Alma Mahler embargoed from repeat transmission. It's an insight not just into the compositional mind of its creator, but also Alma's ardent belief in herself as the guardian of his legacy.

To open the week, Donald Macleod sets the scene for Mahler's relationship with his wife, from her unflattering account of his clumsiness at their wedding to happy memories of the private symphony premieres he would give her at the piano.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b011j7gw)
Shai Wosner

Live from Wigmore Hall in London, pianist and former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Shai Wosner plays a programme of keyboard variations from three centuries. The outer pieces on the programme are connected - Handel's Suite contains a Theme and Variations whose theme was later reused by Brahms for his 'Handel Variations'. Between Handel and Brahms come two sets of variations on 'original' themes. Oliver Knussen wrote his brief set (12 variations in 6 minutes) in the 1980's for American pianist Peter Serkin. Beethoven's Op.34 set are rather more expansive and include a march and a minuet.

Presented by Sean Rafferty

Shai Wosner (piano)

Handel: Suite in B flat, HWV 434
Knussen: Variations Op. 24
Beethoven: Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 34
Brahms: Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Handel, Op. 24.


MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b011j7gy)
Hamburgers and Frankfurters

Episode 1

Louise Fryer presents a week featuring two of Germany's finest orchestras, the NDR (North German Radio) Symphony Orchestra from Hamburg and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra - both sister ensembles to the BBC's own performing groups.

During the week you can hear a daily Mozart concerto or symphony from Hamburg, and a daily Nordic Symphony: two each from Sibelius and Nielsen. Plus the likes of Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Shostakovich and even a couple of British pieces (by Delius and Britten). Monday's programme introduces the NDR Symphony Orchestra, and Tuesday's programme the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra - with a special focus on some of the intriguingly different repertoire and interesting musical juxtapositions that Chief Conductor Paavo Järvi likes to explore with the orchestra.

Our Thursday Opera Matinee comes from the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester: Gianandrea Noseda brings to a close his decade as Chief Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic with a concert performance of Verdi's last great tragic opera, Otello - starring Clifton Forbis and Barbara Frittoli as the ill-starred Shakespearean lovers Othello and Desdemona, and Lado Ataneli as their nemesis Iago. You can also hear Noseda on Wednesday, conducting Mahler's First Symphony in Frankfurt.

Today's programme features the NDR Symphony Orchestra conducted by Christoph Eschenbach and John Storgards in a closely-woven musical tapestry: the first symphonies of bothTchaikovsky and a composer he greatly influenced, Sibelius; plus a favourite symphony by one of Tchaikovsky's own favourite composers, Mozart; and two takes on the best-loved of all Shakespeare's tragedies, Romeo and Juliet - from Delius and Tchaikovsky.

David Hill conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. They are joined by cello soloist Raphael Wallfisch for a performance of the large-scale Rhapsody by York Bowen and the concert also includes folk-inspired music for strings by Vaughan Williams, a favourite short piece by Delius and a darkly atmospheric Hardy-inspired landscape by Holst.

MON 19:40 Twenty Minutes (b011j7wv)
Fruits of the Pomegranate

The potent symbolism of the pomegranate in contemporary poetry in which this most exotic of fruits has taken on a range of new meanings.

In Classical mythology, the only food that Persephone was unable to resist in the dark halls of Hades was six seeds of the golden-red pomegranate. From this story came the explanation for the division of the year into death-like winter and fertile summer, and the common symbolism of the pomegranate as a fruit of fertility, love and resurrection.

This is the story on which the poet Algernon Swinburne drew in 'The Garden of Proserpine'. In turn, Vaughan Williams was inspired to compose his version, the world premiere of which is being performed in the second half of this evening's concert.

During this interval, Beaty Rubens explores a whole new range of meanings which the fruit of the pomegranate has assumed over the last few decades. With extensive illustrations from the poetry of Eavan Boland and Mimi Khalvati, Sarah Maguire, Dunja Mikhail and Zulfikar Ghose, she looks at the way that this fruit has come to represent bloodshed and a powerful sense of exile and longing for home, particularly amongst poets born in the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.

Along the way, she also tells a story of a pomegranate tree grown in a small garden in Oxfordshire and of how the ruby-red seeds of the fruit continue to inspire a thriving sense of optimism.

Producer: Julian May.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b011j7xc)
Bank Holiday Special Edition

Matthew Sweet attempts to re-write the history of British cinema, or at least, re-address the balance and remember some directors who were submerged by the New Wave of British cinema in the early 60s.

Matthew tries to recover the collective memory of directors like Basil Dearden, Roy Ward Baker and J. Lee Thompson who mapped the changing social landscape of the 1950s, when the post-war consensus broke apart and racism and juvenile delinquency appeared through the cracks. Films like Victim, Sapphire and Woman In A Dressing Gown were box-office hits and garnered with awards in their day, but subsequently forgotten by film history in favour of their louder, brasher contemporaries like Saturday Night And Sunday Morning. With the help of some historians, archivists and the occasional director, Matthew puts the record straight.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b011j7xf)
Ambrose Akinmusire, Marcus Strickland Trio

Jez Nelson presents Ambrose Akinmusire at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam. Since being invited to tour with Steve Coleman's Five Elements when aged just 19, Akinmusire has built a reputation as one to watch, playing as a sideman with East Coast musicians such as Vijay Iyer, David Binney and Esperanza Spalding. He was signed to Blue Note last year and this performance features music from his debut album on the label. His playing is distinguished by a variety of tone colours and angular melodic lines, enhancing the adventurous yet straightahead approach of his quintet, featuring Walter Smith III (tenor sax), Sam Harris (piano), Harish Raghavan (bass) and Justin Brown (drums).

Also on the programme, highlights from a set by saxophonist Marcus Strickland and his trio, recorded at the Jazz Baltica festival in Germany last July.

"It seems fitting that the great Hungarian pianist Annie Fischer should have died while listening to a broadcast performance of Bach's St John Passion. Until her final years she was an inveterate concert- and opera-goer. Fischer's profound love of music and her enthusiasm for life were reflected in her playing. She communicated great physical, emotional and spiritual energy, warmth and generosity" (The Independent). Today we hear Fischer tackling the mature emotions of Beethoven's Sonata Op. 26, known as "Les Adieux", with her typical combination of the intellectual and the humane, in a legendary recording not released until after her death - a testament to her reluctance to release recordings begun nearly twenty years earlier, because she was never totally satisfied with the result. In fact, she was said to hate the recording process, but the high quality of her rarely released interpretations made them even more sought after by collectors.

Wigmore Hall 110th Anniversary

In the interval of the gala concert celebrating the 110th anniversary (to the day) of its opening, Christopher Cook tells the story of the Wigmore Hall. He traces the hall's history from its beginning, as a recital room built by Bechstein's, whose showrooms were close by, to showcase their pianos, to today, when this beautiful Edwardian building is one of the most highly regarded chamber music venues in the world. Audiences love its architecture, its acoustic, and the adventurousness of its programming.

The Wigmore Hall was designed by Thomas Colcutt, who also designed state rooms on P&O liners. He loved the Renaissance, hence its alabaster and marble walls, flooring and stairway. In the First World War hostility to German businesses compelled Bechstein's to sell the hall (to Debenhams). It had had cost £100,000 to build but the hall itself, its studios, offices, warehouses and 137 pianos fetched only £56,500. It was refurbished in 2004, and every week Radio 3 broadcasts one of its concerts, live.

Great people have performed there, including Prokofiev, Poulenc and Britten and Pears - several of Britten's chamber and vocal works were given their first performances at the Hall; Jacqueline du Pré played the cello; the Amadeus Quartet gave many memorable concerts. Now its programming includes jazz, too.

Christopher explores the building's history and talks to musicians, and audience members, about its future, too.

"Anne-Sophie Mutter makes strong men quail" (The Telegraph). Certainly, the German prize-winning violinist has maintained a nearly forty year career at the very top of her profession, playing an instrument that ever since Paganini, the archetype of the demonic violin virtuoso, had been seen as male-dominated. Today she performs a work that would probably be played more often if it had been called "The Bernstein Violin Concerto". Bernstein's Serenade after Plato's Symposium for solo violin, strings, harp, and percussion, an unusual suite inspired, intriguingly, by different kinds of love, is one of his finest and most sparkling concert works; Mutter's performance, with her second husband Andre Previn conducting, is magnificent.

Gustav Mahler (1860-1911)

Britten Sinfonia at Lunch 2011

Brahms, Julian Philips, Janacek

The second from the recent series of concerts "Britten Sinfonia at Lunch" features music by Brahms and Janacek alongside a new work from Welsh born composer Julian Philips. Philips' new piece, Ricochets Between was inspired by the two works that stand either side of it. Brahms's melifluous, late trio for clarinet and strings and Janacek's nature inspired chamber Concertino for piano and ensemble.

WED 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b011j856)
Hamburgers and Frankfurters

Episode 3

Louise Fryer presents a week featuring two of Germany's finest orchestras, the NDR (North German Radio) Symphony Orchestra from Hamburg and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra - both sister ensembles to the BBC's own performing groups.

During the week you can hear a daily Mozart concerto or symphony from Hamburg, and a daily Nordic Symphony: two each from Sibelius and Nielsen. Plus the likes of Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Shostakovich and even a couple of British pieces (by Delius and Britten).

Today there's Mozart, Schubert and Sibelius's Seventh Symphony from Hamburg, and from Frankfurt the precocious First Symphony by a man who argued with Sibelius about what kind of piece a symphony should be: Gustav Mahler. When Mahler was conducting in Finland in November 1907 the two composers went for a long walk and talk together, and when Sibelius said he liked the symphony's profound severity and logic, Mahler said: 'No, a symphony must be like the world - it must embrace everything!' The Schubert and Sibelius feature the Principal Guest Conductor of the NDR Symphony Orchestra, Alan Gilbert, while the Mahler is conducted by Gianandrea Noseda, who also conducts tomorrow's Thursday Opera Matinee: Verdi's Shakespearean tragedy 'Otello', with his own orchestra, the BBC Philharmonic.

WED 19:00 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b011j85x)
Wigmore Gala Concert

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Wigmore Hall first opened its doors at the end of May 1901 as the Bechstein Hall, and to celebrate this 110th anniversary in the second of two special gala concerts, an illustrious group of artists come together from across the world for chamber music making of the finest calibre. The ensemble includes the celebrated American violinist Joshua Bell, and the renowned British cellist Steven Isserlis.

A delightful rarity from Beethoven opens the programme, which is followed by the expansive Piano Trio no.2 by Schubert, written at a time when he had reached his full maturity as a composer, though alas as his health was declining at the age of 31.

Dvorak's Miniatures for two violins and viola complement the final work in the concert: Elgar's Piano Quintet, composed in 1919 and given its first performance at Wigmore Hall. Written in a grand style with a sublime slow movement, it is a fitting piece with which to conclude this Gala concert.

Thursday - James Jolly

With James Jolly. This week performances by early music specialist Roy Goodman and a performance of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No.19 in G minor, Op.49 No.1.

"He is best acclaimed for his brisk interpretations of Handel, Haydn and Bach" (The Telegraph), but with over 120 recordings to his name, many exploring Baroque and Classical era repertoire on period instruments, how does more recent music fare under Classical Collection's Artist of the Week Roy Goodman? Today's performances explore a surprisingly fascinating side to Goodman's back catalogue, where he took up the challenge of the period instrument movement to explore more recent repertoire and led them into new territory. For Holst's St Paul's Suite, composed just under a century ago, Goodman revived the New Queen's Hall Orchestra using gut strings and narrow bore wind instruments; amazingly it makes the music sound modern and original. We also hear Schumann's first symphony in its first ever period instrument recording, of which Goodman said: "I remember when the pioneers of the movement took on Haydn for the first time and I thought, is this wise? Now I feel sure that when you push the boundaries forward it makes the previous generation of composers much easier to play."

Britten Sinfonia at Lunch 2011

Simon Holt, Schubert

For the third in the most recent series of concerts "Britten Sinfonia at Lunch" Simon Holt creates a new piece to complement a performance of Schubert's celebrated "Trout" Quintet. Schubert's quintet is scored for the unusual combination of piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass and the fourth of its five movements is based on the famous Schubert song, Die Forelle - "The Trout" - from which the quintet takes its name.
In Simon Holt's new piece he takes up the challenge of writing for the same combination of instruments using them to depict the fall of Icarus.

This summer Gianandrea Noseda, who's been Chief Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic since September 2002, hands over the baton to Juanjo Mena.

Verdi's brooding Shakespearean masterpiece is sung by a world-class line up of soloists, led by American tenor Clifton Forbis in the title role and the Italian soprano Barbara Frittoli as his wife Desdemona. Their nemesis Iago is sung by the Georgian baritone Lado Ataneli.

From Monday 11 July, Afternoon on 3 will broadcast a week of programmes celebrating Gianandrea Noseda's work with the BBC Philharmonic.

LSO - Haydn, Beethoven, Nielsen

Live from the Barbican Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Sir Colin Davis conducts the LSO in symphonies by Schubert and Nielsen. Soloist Mitsuko Uchida joins them for Beethoven's Concerto No 1.
Beethoven wrote his Piano Concerto to play in 1798 at a concert in Prague. As a prodigious soloist keen to impress the public, he gave himself grand and daring challenges. Haydn composed his 99th symphony for a visit to London in 1793; it includes a strikingly elegiac wind choir. Nielsen's final symphony (1925), is known as the "Sinfonia semplice", though its argument is anything but simple.

"A little piece of magic - fourteen minutes of perfection" (1001 Classical Recordings You Must Hear Before You Die). In 1938, the founder of the Proms Henry Wood requested from Ralph Vaughan Williams a piece for a London concert to celebrate his golden jubilee as a conductor. Wood contributed the request to showcase sixteen leading soloists of the day; Vaughan Williams chose the text from Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. The classic recording, made just ten days after the premiere with the same exquisite team, brings vividly to life music designed to celebrate the art of singing and music itself. In essence, what really comes across is an act of homage by the soaring singers to the conductor himself.
