Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music 2011

Intimate Bach

Lucie Skeaping meets the gamba player Hille Perl, theorbo player Lee Santana and harpsichordist Patrick Ayrton for highlights from a concert of "Intimate Bach" from the 2011 Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music.

It is widely believed that JS Bach composed six sonatas for the viola da gamba, although only three of them still exist. Bach often recycled his work so that the same music appears arranged for different instruments. Hille Perl wondered whether the three "missing" gamba sonatas might be found elsewhere in Bach's output, as arrangements. This set her on a quest to discover potential "new" music for gamba by Bach, and in this concert from St John's Smith Square in London, we hear official music for gamba, alongside other items by JS Bach, and the opportunity to hear what could be a restoration of sonatas for viola da gamba by Bach.


SAT 14:00 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

He is now well into his 70s, but with no thoughts of retiring - he has just completed a new album 'Rise Again'. Here he teams up with Max Romeo, whose most successful album, 'War in a Babylon', Perry produced in 1976. Adrian Sherwood has worked as producer with a wide range of successful artists, but he is best known for his work with dub music - he has worked regularly with Lee Perry since the 1980s.

Werther won't accept this, leading to tragic consequences for everybody. Massenet's Goethe-based opera is performed at the Royal Opera House with star tenor Rolando Villazon and Sophie Koch as the doomed lovers. Antonio Pappano conducts, and talks to Andrew McGregor about his view of the opera.

SAT 21:30 Music Feature (b011pksz)
50 Years of Minimalism in Music

American conductor Richard Bernas talks to Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Terry Riley, Bob Wilson, Louis Andriessen, Michael Nyman, Meredith Monk, David Lang, Nico Muhly, John Rockwell, Paula Cooper, among others, as he undertakes a critical survey of five decades of Minimalism in music. He traces its origins in both the San Francisco and New York underground cultures of the early 1960s, exploring the relationship between music and the visual arts, but also theatre and dance. He also assesses how Minimalism, arguably the newest style proper to emerge in Classical music, evolved into a mature and powerful force during the 1970s and 80s, eventually becoming part of the cultural mainstream of today's America. Crossing the Atlantic, he examines its influence in the wider field of European composers, such as Michael Nyman and Louis Andriessen - who've created their own brands of Minimalism.

Presenter: Richard Bernas
Producer: Juan Carlos Jaramillo.


SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b011pktf)
Muhly, Riley, Adams

Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents minimalist and post-minimalist music by three generations of American composers.
Nico Muhly: Seeing Is Believing
Thomas Gould (electric violin)
Aurora Orchestra conducted by Nicholas Collon
Terry Riley: ArchAngels
Cello Octet Amsterdam
John Adams: Chamber Symphony
Aurora Orchestra conducted by Nicholas Collon

Nico Muhly is a rising star in contemporary composition - his new opera Two Boys opens in London on 24th June. He worked as an assistant to Philip Glass, one of the first generation of American Minimalists, and his music might be called "post-minimalist", as it employs the repeating patterns of minimalism but adds rich harmonies and complex textures, as in this concerto for electric violin.
Terry Riley is another Minimalist pioneer, and his cello octet ArchAngels uses different string tunings to create a darkly resonant soundworld.
John Adams' Chamber Symphony combines the unlikely influences of Arnold Schoenberg and classic American cartoon music (one movement is called Roadrunner) to make an action-packed rollercoaster-ride of manic virtuosity.

(Music recorded in recent concert performances at King's Place, London and at the Sounds New Festival, Canterbury.).

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b011pl6f)
Trevor McDonald

Michael Berkeley's guest on Private Passions this week is the journalist and former newsreader Sir Trevor McDonald. Born in Trinidad, he moved to Britain and began his media career as a BBC radio producer. He began his long association with ITN in 1973, first as a general reporter, then as a sports correspondent, and subsequently focusing on international politics - he secured interviews with Yasser Arafat, Colonel Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein, among other notorious international figures.
In the 1980s he became the first black TV newsreader in the UK. From 1992 he was the sole presenter of ITV's News at Ten, quickly gaining a profile as one of the best-known faces on British TV, and continued to present the evening news until he finally retired after the 2008 US Presidential Election. From 1999 to 2009 he hosted ITN's flagship current affairs programme Tonight with Trevor McDonald. He now focuses on presenting documentaries and features. He has won more awards than any other British reporter, and was knighted in 1999.

His musical choices start with Elgar's 'Introduction and Allegro', which he first heard as a young man played by the Halle Orchestra on tour in Trinidad. They continue with the Prisoners' Chorus from Verdi's Nabucco, which represents the cry for freedom of all oppressed people; an aria from Handel's 'Messiah', which moves him as an expression of faith; an excerpt from Beethoven's Violin Concerto played by Nigel Kennedy, whom he greatly admires as a violinist; the Shaker hymn tune 'Simple Gifts' from Copland's 'Appalachian Spring'; an aria from Act I of Puccini's 'Tosca', and the finale of Chopin's First Piano Concerto, played by Artur Rubinstein, another of his musical heroes.

First broadcast in June 2011.

SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b011pl6k)
Gergiev and the London Symphony Orchestra

From the Barbican Centre, London

Presented by Rob Cowan

Valery Gergiev conducts the LSO and pianist Yefim Bronfman in both Shostakovich Piano Concertos and Tchaikovsky's Third Symphony.
Shostakovich's First Piano Concerto is very much the work of a young man spreading his creative wings, with the unusual combination of piano, trumpet and strings - the trumpeter tonight is the orchestra's section principal, Philip Cobb. The Second Concerto, a present for the composer's son has, at its centre, what's possibly the most romantic slow movement that Shostakovich ever composed. The concert's second half features the third and least-known of Tchaikovsky's early symphonies, the so-called Polish Symphony, music that opens in the manner of a sombre funeral march and closes with a thrilling Polonaise.

Shostakovich: Concerto for Trumpet, Piano and Strings
Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No 2

SUN 17:00 Discovering Music (b011plfz)
Beethoven: String Quartet in A minor, Op 132

Stephen Johnson is the guest of the Sowerby Music in Yorkshire for an exploration of one of the pinnacles of the repertory, Beethoven's String Quartet in A minor, Opus 132.

This is one of the so called "late" quartets of Beethoven, written after he had recovered from a debilitating illness. Beethoven used the quartet medium to grapple with some of his deepest feelings and sensibilities and the work is striking for the profundity of its expression and its novel and imaginative use of form. At the heart of the work lies one of the composers' most heart felt slow movements - an expression of an artist's thanks to God after recovering from illness.

Stephen is joined by members of the Wihan Quartet who perform illustrations and a complete performance of the work, and he explores the piece by way of a series of queries and questions from the members of Sowerby Music.


SUN 18:30 Choir and Organ (b011plg1)

Flare Path

Flare Path is a play by Terence Rattigan, written in 1941 and first staged in 1942. Set in a hotel near an RAF Bomber Command airbase during the Second World War, the story involves a love triangle between a pilot, his actress wife and a famous film star.

The title of the play refers to the flares that were used to light runways to allow planes to take off and land but the flare paths were also used by the Germans to target the RAF planes.
In writing the play, Terence Rattigan drew on his experiences as a tail gunner in the RAF Coastal Command.

SUN 21:40 Sunday Feature (b011pmmt)
To Listen Well

ETA Hoffmann summarised the business of music criticism very neatly by saying it existed 'to lead people to listen well'. Hilary Finch, who has been a classical music critic on The Times for thirty years, considers the craft, purpose and future of her own profession at a time when the 'death of the critic' has been proclaimed.

The Times was the first newspaper to appoint a regular music critic, but with a combination of changes in the arts, in newspapers and in social media, she considers whether it might be the last.

Hilary talks with fellow critics Hugh Canning, Anna Picard and Paul Morley, the Radio 3 presenter and twitterer Tom Service, and people from other corners of the music industry - the soprano Elizabeth Watts, the chief executive of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and media relations expert Ginny Macbeth.

Producer: Alan Hall
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.


SUN 22:25 Words and Music (b011pmpk)
Turning Points

In this edition of Words & Music Helena Bonham Carter and Hugh Bonneville explore Turning Points, from life-changing and epoch-making, to funny and insignificant.

Love is the pivot for many of the programme's turning points. Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra, artist Marc Chagall, and Coleridge fall in it; Dorothea (in George Eliot's 'Middlemarch') and Carol Ann Duffy's Eurydice fall out of it; Alan Bennett movingly describes his mother's final days.

Revolutions provide other turning points: the Industrial one provokes opposing reactions from Erasmus Darwin and William Blake; Igor Stravinsky self-consciously remembers his musical one, and Estelle Sylvia Pankhurst recalls her part in an episode in the fight for Women's Suffrage.

The lives of Hilaire Belloc's Matilda and the Bible's Saul are changed forever by versions of the truth, and there's a culinary miracle when eggs and oil emulsify into a mayonnaise, according to Julia Child's instructions.

Music is by Bach, Beethoven, Janacek, Rachmaninov, Vaughan Williams and Erma Franklin, among others.

MON 10:00 Classical Collection (b011pnnw)
Monday - James Jolly

With James Jolly. This week musicians and music associated with the Aldeburgh Festival, and Pierre-Laurent Aimard, the festival's current artistic director, is our Artist of the Week.

To celebrate the opening of the 64th festival on Friday 10th June, here on Classical Collection James Jolly celebrates the music and musicians associated with the Festival.

"The annual Aldeburgh Festival, arguably the best musical event in Britain" - (Charlotte Higgins, Guardian).

"World-renowned as an outstanding year-round performance centre, Aldeburgh is also a place where artists at all stages of their career can be inspired and energized. With inspirational scenery, a rich musical heritage and the time and space for musicians and audience to discover, create and explore, Aldeburgh is the place to help artists reach their full potential and define their own musical landscape." (Aldeburgh Music)

Central to this week music and musicians associated with Aldeburgh are performances by the festival's current artistic director, the French pianist, Pierre-Laurent Aimard. "I''m a musician, and the piano happens to be my instrument. I don't like to have one function, to give me just one perspective on music. I like to make chamber music, to be part of a group, to play song accompaniments, to teach, to speak about music. In other words, to live the phenomenon on different sides." (Aimard in interview with Tom Service, The Guardian).

There are also performances from former directors including Oliver Knussen (Mussorgsky), Steuart Bedford (Britten), Murray Perahia (Liszt), Imogen Holst (in her husband's music), Thomas Ades, and from Britten himself (Bach, Mozart as well as his own).

The Festival was founded by Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears and Eric Crozier in 1948 with concerts given in the Jubilee Hall in Aldeburgh and in local churches. In the mid-1960s the Festival gained a new concert hall with the conversion of Snape Maltings, which includes one of the largest mid nineteenth century barley malthouses in East Anglia. Most of the building's original character, such as the distinctive square malthouse roof-vents, was retained. The new concert hall was opened by the Queen on 2 June 1967, at the start of the twentieth Aldeburgh Festival.

The next recording was made in 1968, a year before the old concert hall was destroyed by fire on the first night of the 1969 festival.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00npls6)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Gymnopediste

Irascible. Irreverent. Infuriating. He's the author of one of the most famous - and beautiful - piano pieces ever written. Yet away from the famous Gymnopédie, Erik Satie still divides opinion like no other composer.

In today's episode, Donald Macleod explores Satie's early life - from his youth in the sleepy seaside town of Honfleur to the boozy dives of bohemian Montmartre...and that trio of Gymnopédies, written at the tender age of 20.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b011pntg)
Angela Hewitt

Live from Wigmore Hall in London. The renowned Canadian pianist, Angela Hewitt, gives a recital of keyboard works by Bach and Chopin. She couples two of Bach's French Suites, which are full of idealized dances, with works by Chopin that are based round his music used in the ballet Les Sylphides.

Angela Hewitt, who used to dance in Les Sylphides with the original choreography, has chosen to play the Chopin pieces in the same sequence as the ballet.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Episode 1

Across the week the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra plays complete concerts from around Scotland featuring their family of conductors: Donald Runnicles, Ilan Volkov, Andrew Manze and Matthias Pintscher. There's also the chance to hear brand-new CD releases of British Music recorded by the orchestra, featuring music by Walton and Somervell.

The Thursday Opera Matinee this week is Wagner's Das Rheingold from the Paris National Opera, and on Wednesday we go live to the Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff for a concert conducted by Roberto Minczuk featuring Rachmaninov's final work, the Symphonic Dances, alongside one of the greatest masterpieces of Russian music: Mussorgsky's Songs and Dances of Death, sung by Radio 3 New Generation Artist Henk Heven.

Walton's driving rhythms and passionate lyricism are combined in one of his greatest works, his First Symphony. This brand-new recording conducted by Martyn Brabbins is about to be issued on CD. The second half of the afternoon is dedicated to a concert given in Aberdeen with the BBC SSO's Principal Guest Conductor, Ilan Volkov. Bruckner's Fifth was his longest Symphony and in some ways his most complex work, overcoming the pain and frustration of life with an atmosphere of spiritual exaltation. This is a mammoth work given life in one of Scotland's best concert halls.

Presented by Katie Derham.

The Cardinall's Musick

Byrd, Tallis, Sheppard, Mundy

Live from St.John's College Cambridge

Presented by Louise Fryer

This concert, which is part of Cambridge Summer Music, puts the music of Elizabethan composer William Byrd firmly in the context of his colleagues and friends. In what was a golden age for English music, Byrd and Thomas Tallis wrote music for the Protestant church despite both having strong Catholic sympathies, and Byrd co-wrote the psalm setting In exitu Israel with John Sheppard and William Mundy. Robert Parsons was Byrd's predecessor as Organist of Lincoln Cathedral and Alfonso Ferrabosco was an exotic spy-composer and both of them had an impact on Byrd's own compositions. The Cardinall's Musick is known for its extensive study of English Renaissance music, winning Recording of the Year at the 2010 Gramophone Awards for a recording of William Byrd's latin music.

Emotional Breakdown

Glory

The first in a six-part series of lively conversations examining how and why certain pieces of music make us feel the way they do. In each programme, presenter Suzy Klein and two guests explore a theme such as tragedy, glory or romance. They champion favourite pieces that evoke the theme and discuss just what it is about the music that pulls these emotional strings. Tonight's theme is glory, with composer Anna Meredith and Aurora Orchestra's principal conductor Nicholas Collon talking to Suzy about Handel, Sibelius and Messiaen.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b011pp6d)
Contemporary India, Sentimentality, Butley, John Burnside

Rana Mitter talks to two acclaimed Indian novelists about their new - non-fiction - books. Arundhati Roy and Siddhartha Deb discuss their views on the nature of India's development into an emerging superpower and explore how the dream of a new India compares to the reality.

Controversial writer V.S Naipaul last week suggested that women's writing is overly sentimental; and this year's Orange Prize for literature - a prize which has often attracted criticism for its exclusion of male writers - is about to be announced. Novelists Sarah Dunant and Philip Hensher join Rana to debate why accusations of sentimentality are so often levelled at female writing, and whether or not matters of gender have any place in the appreciation of literature.

Susannah Clapp reviews the 40th anniversary revival of Simon Gray's award-winning comedy, Butley - with Dominic West in the starring role as a charismatic professor.

And Rana talks to poet and writer John Burnside about his new novel, A Summer of Drowning, set in the white nights of an Arctic summer.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b00twyq2)
A Letter to My Body

Sarah Graham

'A Letter to my Body' is a series of essays in which five thinkers, artists and writers ask themselves how they relate to their own bodies. In this first essay Sarah Graham, who is now a successful therapist and addictions counsellor, explores her at times turbulent relationship with her body. From the age of eight Sarah was given ongoing medical treatment for a disorder of sexual development - but she only learned the real nature of her diagnosis at the age of twenty-five when a gynaecologist finally revealed the truth: that she is an intersex woman. She has XY chromosomes. She had never questioned her sex and had lived her life as a woman. Doctors had even shielded her parents from the truth about her gender. The shock of the revelation led Sarah on a path of depression and addiction which nearly killed her. However she has gradually rebuilt her health and her self esteem. In this essay she makes peace with her body and questions our society's polarised expectations of gender.
Producer: Charlotte Simpson.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b011pp6g)
Overtone Quartet at the 2011 Cheltenham Festival

Jez Nelson presents transatlantic group the Overtone Quartet at the Cheltenham Festival. This all-star band first came together in 2007, although some of the musical relationships involved go back 20 years. Notionally led by bass player Dave Holland, the group has a strong collective ethos, with each member stamping their authority through adventurous compositions, virtuosic sparring and subtle interplay. It features Chris Potter on saxophone, pianist Jason Moran, drummer Eric Harland and, replacing Dave Holland for this performance, Larry Grenadier on double bass.

Also on the programme Nate Chinen talks to Jason Moran about his musical influences, and Jez discusses the new Smithsonian jazz anthology with Nate and Smithsonian panel member and Radio 3 presenter Alyn Shipton.

Beethoven Piano Sonata Cycle

Beethoven's Sonata in E flat major, Op.27 No.1 is the featured sonata today. Unfairly neglected in favour of its famous "Moonlight" companion, this work marked a radical breakthrough, a new sense of freedom in Beethoven's piano writing. With its coquettish dancing andante, a breathless moto perpetuo, romantic full-bodied adagio, and improvisatory fugal finale the work expresses the emotional turmoil Beethoven was suffering at the time of its composition as his deafness threatened his livelihood as a performing musician.

The pianist Friedrich Gulda was born to take on the challenges of this sonata. Trained in the classical tradition in its home town of Vienna, from the 1950s onwards he cultivated an interest in jazz, and he brings the best of both styles to his performance of this sonata.

Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Monsieur Le Pauvre

In the 1890s, Satie reinvented himself as a holy man - a self-imposed outcast from the 'wicked' musical establishment. After a brief spell as the composer for a Christian cult, he set up his own church, studied mystical volumes in Paris's National Library, and penned vitriolic articles in his own magazine (average circulation: 1).

Donald Macleod introduces the music of this 'mystic' period, including the infamous Vexations - a short piece which the pianist is apparently instructed to repeat 840 times - and the rare, almost Zen-like ballet Uspud.

TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b011ppgw)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Episode 2

Today's music from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's brand-new CDs begins with William Walton's Second Symphony, conducted by Martyn Brabbins. Composed over 25 years after Walton had written his first symphony, it was greeted with a muted response by the younger critics of the time as being out of date; but as the years pass opinions are shifting in its favour. We also hear from another English composer - Arthur Somervell, with a work for piano and orchestra in which pianist Martin Roscoe joins the orchestra and Martyn Brabbins.

The second half of the programme is given over to a performance recorded in Inverness featuring the BBC SSO's Principal Oboe, Stella McCracken and conducted by the orchestra's Associate Guest Conductor Andrew Manze. Mozart's wonderful Oboe Concerto is sandwiched between the gems of Brahms' Tragic Overture and his First Symphony.

Presented by Katie Derham.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b011pph0)
Royal Philharmonic - Weber, Beethoven, Stravinsky

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London.

Presented by Martin Handley.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and its Artistic Director Charles Dutoit perform Stravinsky's infamous ballet score for the Rite of Spring, together with a Beethoven piano concerto and a lively concert waltz by Weber.

Originally composed for the piano, Weber's Invitation to the Dance tells the story of a couple at a ball. It caught the imagination of many composers, most notably the master orchestrator Berlioz. In Beethoven's Fourth Piano concerto the orchestra and soloist are in close partnership, and the gentle lyricism of the opening movements contrasts with the exuberance of the finale.

Diaghilev's Ballets Russes had helped to establish Stravinsky's reputation as one of the leading modern composers of the day, but that reputation turned into notoriety at the angry, hooliganistic reception of The Rite of Spring in 1913. Described by Debussy as a 'beautiful nightmare', the Rite combines music of terrifying savagery with passages of quiet wonder and mystery, and remains one of the towering masterpieces of 20th-century music.

AC Grayling, Obsession with the Past, Amitav Ghosh, Tarell Alvin McCraney

As philosopher A C Grayling announces the foundation of the New College of the Humanities, Philip Dodd brings him together with critic Terry Eagleton to discuss the new venture. What will the students be taught?

In a new book called Retromania, the music writer Simon Reynolds argues that contemporary pop culture is addicted to the past. But what about the renaissance's attraction to the classical past, or the Victorians' penchant for the medieval gothic? Philip Dodd and historians, Rosemary Sweet and Roger Luckhurst, ask how new is our love of the old?

Amitav Ghosh is the bestelling author of the Sea of Poppies, shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2008. He joins Philip to discuss the next in the epic trilogy, a sweeping swashbuckling tale set during the Opium Wars.

And Philip talks to American playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney about his new RSC commission opening at the Hampstead Theatre this week.

Antony Gormley

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00npmhl)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Le Fantaisiste

In 1905, Satie renounced his bohemian lifestyle and decided, rather improbably...to go back to school, at the tender age of 39. After two years of hard graft, he graduated with flying colours - and with typical perversity, set about composing some of the most surreal piano works ever written...

In today's episode, Donald Macleod explores his famously eccentric character, as expressed in works like Desiccated Embryos and the six 'monkey dances' from his Dadaist opera Medusa's Snare. He ends with Satie's most famous stage work - the irreverent ballet Parade.

The programme includes works by Tomas Luis de Victoria, who was both priest and composer and died 400 years ago this year: the BBC Singers, conducted by David Hill, perform Victoria's Mass O quam gloriosum, together with the motet on which it's based. In addition, works three of Victoria's friends, contemporaries and associates - all of them masters of the rich and passionate styles of church music in the Spanish renaissance.
Completing the programme, organist Stephen Farr plays works from the brilliant and highly colourful repertoire of Spanish keyboard music of the period.

Tonight's theme is defiance, with choreographer Siobhan Davies and composer/artist Tom Phillips talking to Suzy about Britten, Stravinsky and the Dies Irae plainchant.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b011ppmc)
Mysterious Wisdom, Simon Boccanegra, Stephen Law, Life in a Day

As 'Mysterious Wisdom', a new biography of the visionary painter Samuel Palmer is published Matthew Sweet talks to its author Rachel Campbell-Johnston. The book tells the story of the man who, inspired by William Blake, set up the first British art movement, the brotherhood of Ancients. Much neglected during his lifetime Palmer's reputation has grown since his death in 1881 - he has been a major influence on twentieth century artists.

And Susan Hitch gives a first night review of Verdi's 'Simon Boccanegra', a tale of public feuds and private griefs, set against a backdrop of civil war, in a production at the ENO conducted by Edward Gardner and with leading Verdi baritone Bruno Caproni in the title role .

Philosopher Stephen Law has written a book about how people come to believe in ridiculous ideas. He discusses his guide to avoiding getting sucked into intellectual black holes with Matthew and journalist Nick Cohen.

And Kevin Macdonald talks to Matthew Sweet about his new film, Life in a Day, in which he invited people across the world to submit footage of their lives on one day: 24th July 2010. He discusses how he made the four and a half thousand hours worth of footage he received into a film and examines why involving the general public in art is so popular today.

Britten wrote the cadenzas at Richter's request specifically for this performance. Britten dared to step outside the musical language of Mozart's original and express the full sonorities and virtuoso displays that a grand piano is capable of in an extraordinary mix of musical styles and melodic invention.

Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Two Masterpieces

Donald Macleod introduces two works widely regarded as Satie's greatest, plus a rare miniature for violin and piano, The Embarkation For Cythera.

The brilliant suite of vignettes Sports Et Divertissements was commissioned to accompany a volume of artworks. Originally turned down by Stravinsky, Satie almost rejected the project - as he felt the fee offered was too handsome.

Socrate is generally considered the composer's masterpiece - a unique, poignant, stunningly beautiful work for voices and chamber orchestra, setting Plato's account of the death of Socrates.

The Philharmonia Play Music from Russia

Live from the London's Royal Festival Hall

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Yuri Temirkanov has been Music Director of the St.Petersburg Philharmonic for more than two decades and he brings an all-Russian programme to London. Liadov's Kikimora, a 'fantastic scherzo' with operatic origins, tells the story of a legendary figure from Slavic folklore who spins flax from dawn to dusk, with evil intentions for the world. The other two works on the programme are by Rachmaninov. His much-loved 2nd Piano Concerto has the award-winning Russian-born pianist Kirill Gerstein as soloist. The Symphonic Dances is Rachmaninov's final orchestral work, combining a remarkable rhythmic energy with a nostalgic look back to some of Rachmaninov's earlier music.

A new television drama based on Mallory's Morte d'Arthur starts on Channel 4 this weekend starring Joseph Fiennes and Eva Green. The historical novelist Philippa Gregory and Professor of Medieval History Miri Rubin give their verdict on this latest foray into Arthurian legend.

This week the government brought in legislation to combat the sexualisation of children, banning the sale of deliberately provocative clothing. This Saturday hundreds of women will march in a 'Slut Walk' - a rejection of the idea that women should moderate their dress to minimise the risk of sexual attack. Classicist Edith Hall and columnist Deborah Orr discuss the historical interrelation of dress and sexuality, and ask whether it is ever possible to detach dress from social expectation.

The political cartoonist Steve Bell has artistically lampooned everyone from John Major to George Bush. He explains how he captures the mannerisms of the political elite and is joined by Sir Menzies Campbell who explains what it is like to be the subject of one of Bell's depictions.

And the author David Pryce-Jones discusses his latest book 'Treason of the Heart', which looks at the British radicals and activists who took up foreign causes; from Thomas Paine's influence on American independence to Byron's support for the Greeks rebelling against the Ottoman empire.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b00twzc0)
A Letter to My Body

Ted Harrison

Writer and journalist Ted Harrison asks what body, soul and self really mean in the light of advances in our understanding of molecular biology. Can the Cartesian idea of body-soul dualism mean anything today? Twenty years ago Ted himself received a life-saving kidney transplant. He reflects on how he views the donor organ - and the unknown friend who donated it and he asks whether the development of organ and tissue transplantation changes our notions of the integrity of the body.

The Friday Virtuoso

This week's Friday Virtuoso is British pianist Clifford Curzon who performs Liszt's Sonata in B minor. The work was described by Wagner, Liszt's son-in-law, as "beyond all conception beautiful; great, lovely, deep and noble", and it is these qualities that Curzon emphasizes in his performance. Liszt's music can often be heard as inflated, superfluous and over-the-top, but in Curzon's hands, while delivering the pyrotechnic displays with great bravura, it is the spiritual and the humane nature of the composer that is revealed.

"Curzon is more meticulous than anyone in his observance of Liszt's tempo and tonal indications... There is wonderful delicacy in his playing and plenty of full-blooded excitement." (Gramophone)

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00npp59)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Le Maitre

By the early 1920s, Satie was the toast of Paris. Having been spotted by the legendary impresario Jean Cocteau, he found himself working with the likes of Picasso and hailed by a new generation as "the Prince Of Musicians". The composer had also invented "furniture music" - designed to work unnoticed as interior decoration, a little like modern muzak.

Donald Macleod introduces Satie's momentous last decade, featuring two rare fanfares for trumpet and a song written in memory of the composer's greatest friend and colleague, Claude Debussy. The week ends with Satie's remarkable Entr'acte Cinematographique, the first ever film music to be written frame-by-frame, and a startling precursor of minimalism.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b00twzg9)
A Letter to My Body

Joan Bakewell

'A Letter to my Body' is a series of essays in which five thinkers, artists and writers ask themselves how they relate to their own bodies. In this essay broadcaster Dame Joan Bakewell, who has been outspoken on the way that our society perceives and treats old people, asks herself how she feels about her own body now that she has reached her seventies. She explores the cultural influences - from Shirley Temple to the image of the white wedding - which led her to grow up seeking to use her appearance to gain affection and approval and asks whether now, as she approaches old age, she has finally been liberated from society's expectations of the female body.
Producer: Charlotte Simpson.

They will be playing songs from their latest album 'Find the Lady', including the poignant First World War song 'Home, Lads Home'.
