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

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

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

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

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

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

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


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b012fc76)
Musica Britannica

Catherine Bott speaks to Julian Rushton, Chairman of Musica Britannica - a national collection of music founded in 1951 and which was one of the main musical sources of the modern Early Music revival in Britain. Among the music featured in the programme are works by Tallis, Byrd, Blow and Lawes.


SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0128ml2)
Imogen Cooper

Live from London's Wigmore Hall pianist Imogen Cooper begins her recital with four mini-masterpieces by Debussy. The centrepiece of her programme is one of Beethoven's darker piano sonatas (sometimes known as the 'Tempest' sonata) and she ends with two of Chopin's finest works - a dreamy Nocturne and the glorious final Ballade.

SAT 15:00 World Routes (b012fcp0)
Sayan Ring Festival

Andy Kershaw visits the Sayan Ring Festival in Shushenskoe in deepest Siberia. Modelled on the UK's WOMAD Festival, it draws artists and audiences from across the Russian Federation and beyond. Andy meets some of the headline acts, including local boys Huun Huur Tu from nearby Tuva, Daler Nazarov from Tajikistan, and veteran German world music band Dissidenten, and he gets a masterclass in throat singing.

The Sayan Ring Festival is located in Siberia's Sayan Ring mountains. Shushenskoe was a major tourist town during the Soviet era, as one of Lenin's places of exile - and as interest in Lenin declined in the post-Soviet years, the town turned to music and culture to fill its monolithic hotel. Huun Huur Tu is the area's best-known band, having taken their Tuvan throat-singing style all over the world. Daler Nazarov started out as a rock musician, spent years as a successul film music composer, and has now returned to touring with a band, this time with music strongly based on Tajik traditions. Berlin-based band Dissidenten have been called the 'grandfathers of world beat', and had great success in the 1990s with songs such as 'Fata Morgana'. Andy's throat-singing lesson comes from Albert Kuvezin, one of the pioneers of the popularisation of Tuvan music through his work with Huun Huur Tu and Yat Kha. The programme was recorded at the 2010 Sayan Ring Festival.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Library (b012fcp2)

Massenet's Cendrillon

Live from Covent Garden, the Royal Opera House presents its first ever production of Massenet's Cendrillon in a staging by French director Laurent Pelly with an all-star cast including Joyce DiDonato and Alice Coote. Massenet's score stays true to Perrault's well-known Cinderella story, but adding a coloratura soprano fairy-godmother, and some ravishing duets for Cendrillon and her prince.

SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b00s4xrx)
The Glass Piano

Writer and poet Deborah Levy considers the true story of Princess Alexandra Amelie of Bavaria, 1826-1875 who at the age of 23 was observed awkwardly walking sideways down the corridors of her family palace. When questioned by her worried royal parents, she announced that she had swallowed a grand glass piano.

The Princess is played by Emily Watson.

The piece is structured between the Princess's dialogue as she walks through the palace and the conversations Levy has to find out what's wrong with her. Our key contributors are the psychoanalyst Susie Orbach, historian Erin Sullivan and Consultant in Emergency Medicine, Dr Fiona Lecky with music composed and arranged by Chris O'Shaughnessy.

This is a magical tale on the one hand and a partial history and analysis of mental delusions on the other.

We follow the 23 year old Alexandra Amelie as she walks sideways around the doors and ornaments of the royal palace. She is wearing a white dress, certain colours and smells distress her.

Delusions of being made from glass were quite popular in the 16th century. The stories are extraordinary and include "The Lawyer Made From Glass", by Cervantes which tells of a man who believed his body was made from glass. He wears loose clothing, sleeps in straw, walks in the middle of the road to avoid injury from falling roof tiles, and is so scared of people approaching him when they give him food, he fixes a bucket to the end of a pole so fruit can be deposited in it.

For Levy, Alexandra Amelie is a sort of early cyborg, a collision of flesh and technology. Woman and piano have merged, the piano being an instrument of communication.


SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b012fczg)

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b012fqr3)
Andrew Graham-Dixon

Michael Berkeley's guest this week is the art critic and TV presenter of arts programmes Andrew Graham-Dixon. He began his career as Chief Art Critic of the Independent, won the inaugural Hawthornden Prize for Art Criticism in 1991, and since 1999 has been Chief Art Correspondent of The Sunday Telegraph.

He has presented several landmark series on art for the BBC, including A History of British Art, Renaissance, The Art of Eternity, The Art of Spain, The Art of Russia and The Art of Germany, as well as a film biography of Hogarth, Art That Shook the World (a study of Impressionism), and The Secret Lives of the Artists, three films re-evaluating the lives and works of Caravaggio (of whom he has also published a biography), Vermeer and Constable. He has also presented documentaries about more recent artists including Jasper Johns, Lucian Freud and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Since 2006 he has been the face of the visual arts on BBC2's The Culture Show.

Andrew Graham-Dixon's musical tastes are equally wide-ranging: a Schubert Impromptu he remembers his grandmother playing and the great Chaconne from Bach's Partita No.2 in D minor for solo violin; the opening of Wagner's Das Rheingold, which he finds truly revolutionary; Beethoven's A minor String Quartet Op.132, which to him represents the essence of Romanticism in its expression of invidual human feeling; to Keith Jarrett, whom he admires for his improvisatory skills, Glenn Miller's In the Mood, which, he says, is functional music guaranteed to cheer you up, and The Sex Pistols' Anarchy in the UK, which he thinks is the most important piece of British 20th-century music, as destruction is central to our culture.

First broadcast in July 2011.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b012fqr5)

SUN 17:00 Discovering Music (b012fqs4)
Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain

Stephen Johnson joins the pianist Artur Pizarro and the BBC Concert Orchestra conducted by Barry Wordsworth for a look at the music and ideas of Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.

Falla finsihed his musical evocation of Spanish landscapes, scored for piano and orchestra, in 1915. As well as the many native Spanish influences that shaped the music, Falla was also guided by the French Impressionists, Debussy and Ravel, so that his three movement portrait has a telling atmospheric quality. It also demonstrates many of the Spanish influences taken from the Arab world.

Stephen unpicks the work with playing and comment from the Lisbon born pianist Artur Pizarro.

My Heart's a Suitcase

David Edgar introduces a new production of "My Heart's a Suitcase" by Clare McIntyre.

McIntyre was one of the new generation of women playwrights who emerged with huge impact in the 1980s and this was one of her best-known plays from 1990.

Two young women take a weekend break in Brighton but find that you can never really escape from your feelings, fear, money and the lack of it.

Chris and Hannah are close friends and they decide to take up an offer of a weekend in Brighton, staying in a large but empty, seafront flat. Although they are close friends, they are very different, Hannah has MS but is accepting of her lot, her glass is always half full, Chris on the other hand is healthy but wishes she had more of everything and finds life hard to accept, her glass is always half empty!

Over the weekend they encounter Elliot, a down on his luck homeless man who has been squatting in the flat and Tunis, the wealthy wife of the owner of the flat, who is and has everything Chris and Hannah are and have not! It is a weekend of visitations and attempts to confront the truth and with help, lighten and enlighten the load.

David Edgar was a colleague of Clare McIntrye's, who died in 2009.

SUN 21:35 Sunday Feature (b012fqty)
Dark Arcadias

Part 2

Adam Nicolson presents a two-part exploration of humankind's relationship with nature, told through the cultural accounts of the arcadian wild we have made. This is a journey from the cave paintings of Chauvet in France to the Cape Farewell - artists as eco-warriors - project. To be human is to construct arcadias: of the mind and for real, escapes and escape routes. Culture is made in the recognition of the gap between wildness and the self. But accounts of the gap are made on and of the earth, and they cannot be heavenly. So arcadia is always dark. Death lives at its heart. This is what the cave paintings describe and the melting ice maps tell. Et in Arcadia ego.

Producer: Tim Dee

First broadcast in July 2011.


SUN 22:20 Words and Music (b012fqv0)
Apples

Olivia Williams and Oliver Ford Davies read poems and prose inspired by apples with work by Keats, Kafka and Christina Rossetti and music by Schumann, Purcell and Janacek.

Apples are such a common place food and yet have been deployed in literature and myth to mean much more than the crisp bite and juicy, healthy froth on the tongue. They are a symbol of temptation, seduction and the fall of man as well as, in the savouring of the old names of disregarded varieties, a sort of nostalgic longing for an England of abundant orchards.

Night Waves theatre critic Susannah Clapp reports on the Manchester International Festival which includes a new musical by Victoria Wood about the Manchester Childrens Choir's 1929 recording of Nymphs and Shepherds and a collaboration for children between the BBC and immersive theatre company Punchdrunk taking Doctor Who as its starting point.

David Coke and Hannah Grieg discuss the Pleasure Gardens at Vauxhall which provided two centuries of opportunities for promenading and performance. Juliet asks whether they deserve their reputation as a place where all kinds of boundaries, whether social or sexual, where breached.

The writer Joan Smith joins Juliet to review the new television adaptation of Sarah Waters' wartime novel The Night Watch.

And Philip Roscoe of St Andrews University, one of the finalists in the Radio 3 New Generation Thinkers scheme, gives his personal view of online dating.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b00v7sxl)
Architecture: The Fourth R

The Past Sure Is Tense

Making shelter is a fundamental human activity, so, asks Former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Sunand Prasad - why don't we talk about it? The way we build reflects society's values and aspirations - but also its fears. In The Essay, Sunand Prasad takes us on a journey through Architecture, from the India he grew up in, to the Utopian vision of Le Corbusier, from the concrete carbuncles of Post-War Britain, to the design that will combat Climate Change.

In this first programme, he examines our relationship with buildings of the past 200 years, in a search for our mistrust of the new. And despite the failed Utopias of 60s tower blocks, Sunand Prasad sees a brave new architecture emerging in their wake.


MON 23:00 Sacred Sites (b012fr9f)

TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b012ft1c)
Phone-Hacking, Museum of Liverpool, The Kingdom, Rachel Hewitt

On tonight's Night Waves...

... Matthew Sweet and guests, the business psychologist David de Cremer, philosopher Julian Baggini and the canon chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, Giles Fraser, discuss the moral questions thrown up by the current phone-hacking scandal. Is it, like the parliamentary expenses and the care home abuses scandals of recent months another example of how we live and work in hermetically-sealed environments, bubbles with their own rules and what passes for ethics? Is it inevitably the case that we lose the ability to look at the bigger picture when we work and operate in closed groups or should we continuously assert a reference to a wider moral framework?

Ahead of the opening of the new Museum of Liverpool, the largest purpose built museum in Britain for more than a century, its director Janet Dugdale gives Matthew a private tour. He also meets Liverpool historian, John Belchem to get a sense of why the city's history deserves its very own museum.

Following the success of The Killing, another major TV series from Denmark is being released on DVD. Lars Von Trier's magnum opus The Kingdom is like no other hospital drama ever made - more Twin Peaks than Casualty, it was a huge success when it was first shown in the mid 90s, but does it hold up two decades later? Dr Niall Boyce from the Lancet reviews.

And there's a chance to hear the thoughts of another of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, Rachel Hewitt.

That's Night Waves at 10.00 pm with Matthew Sweet.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b00v7tny)
Architecture: The Fourth R

The Value Proposition

Making shelter is a fundamental human activity, so, asks Former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Sunand Prasad - why don't we talk about it? The way we build reflects society's values and aspirations - but also its fears. Sunand Prasad takes us on a journey through Architecture, from the India he grew up in, to the Utopian vision of Le Corbusier, from the concrete carbuncles of Post-War Britain, to the design that will combat Climate Change.

In this second programme, he argues that the buildings we work in are just as important as the activities that take place within them. Sunand explains the value of good quality design, from speeding patient recovery, to helping children learn; and why investment in architecture is a commitment to our faith in the future, as well as a way of saving costs.

The BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda

Episode 3

Louise Fryer celebrates the work of the BBC Philharmonic and Gianandrea Noseda who leaves them this Summer after a distinguished decade in charge as Chief Conductor
Today there's also the chance to hear a rare performance of a ballet by Noseda's compatriot Dallapiccola. Written during the bleakest period of WW2 - like all his stage works - it portrays an unequal confrontation between an individual and a musical greater force. Here, the satyr Marsyas is bold enough to challenge the god Apollo to a musical contest. Naturally he loses, and is punished by being flayed alive.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b012ftq9)
Peter Hall, The Hour, Shahidha Bari

Warning : This programme contains strong language.

Philip Dodd talks to the theatre director Peter Hall as he directs Henry IV Parts 1 and 2 at the Theatre Royal in Bath. Hall's 1963-64 staging of the Wars of the Roses Cycle, which inaugurated the Royal Shakespeare Company and which included the Henry plays, is one of the great landmark productions of Shakespeare's work.
Forty seven years later as he approaches the plays again he talks about his career, Shakespeare, Harold Pinter and the ways theatre has found to thrive, and sometimes just survive, in Britain over that time.

Dominic Sandbrook takes us further back in time to the fifties as he reviews the new television series 'The Hour' which revolves around a current affairs programme, just launched, and the aspiring young journalists who drive it. Was fifties Britain as exciting a place to be as various Madmen found New York ?

And one of our New Generation Thinkers, Shahidha Bari, traces the relationship that the poets John Keats and Samuel Taylor Coleridge had with The Arabian Nights, a text that came out of a tradition that was not theirs, and which they did not fully understand, but by which they were formed. Such relationships are particularly relevant to us today in the context of our recent and current engagements with places like Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b00v7txq)
Architecture: The Fourth R

Culture and Multiculture

Making shelter is a fundamental human activity, so, asks Former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Sunand Prasad - why don't we talk about it? The way we build reflects society's values and aspirations - but also its fears. Sunand Prasad takes us on a journey through Architecture, from the India he grew up in, to the Utopian vision of Le Corbusier, from the concrete carbuncles of Post-War Britain, to the design that will combat Climate Change.

In this third programme, he assesses the impact of multiculturalism on British buildings. As waves of immigrants make their mark on society, Sunand asks, what would a future archaeologist see of their impact on our buildings? He looks at the evolution of architecture as cultures come together; how the spaces around us can promote how we want to live and work; and how, from warehouses to weavers' lofts, the way we use our buildings is constantly adapting, with every social change.


WED 23:00 Sacred Sites (b012fvnm)
Mor Karbasi

Recorded last week at Manchester Reform Synagogue during the International Festival. Five of the foremost international performers of sacred song celebrate the power of the voice in Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh sites of worship across the city. Tonight Lopa Kothari meets Mor Karbasi, a singer influenced by several cultures - from songs inspired by the Jewish culture of fifteenth-century Spain to new Ladino-influenced compositions. Mor's music is heavily inspired by and influenced by her deep connection with the Jewish faith, and her love for Spain and Morocco. And Lopa shares in the life of the Manchester Jewish community and speaks to festival goers experiencing the unique surroundings of a Synagogue for the first time. Producer: Chris Wines.

Sunand Prasad takes us on a journey through Architecture,from the India he grew up in, to the Utopian vision of Le Corbusier, from the concrete carbuncles of Post-War Britain, to the design that will combat Climate Change.

In this fourth programme, Sunand takes us back to the place he grew up, Sevagram. Recalling the way of life of this community, founded by Gandhi, Sunand finds out what today's architects can learn from traditional ways of living. He also looks at the challenge architecture faces in creating zero-carbon buildings, and asks - in an age where air-conditioning and central heating are the norm, are we ready to make the changes to our buildings that will combat Climate Change, and so ensure the future of the World?

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

New British music, Brahms and Liszt and lavish choral works are some of the musical threads which trace their way through the 2011 Proms season and they are all represented in this opening celebration. The performers are the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and a starry line-up of soloists under the baton of Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra Jiri Belohlavek.

A new work by leading British composer Judith Weir provides the opening flourish - a short choral and orchestral fanfare based on the four words of the title: Stars, Night, Music and Light. Brahms and Liszt not only form a witty partnership in rhyming slang they are both in their own ways at the core of European music in the 19th Century and many of their major works appear throughout the season. Tonight's concert includes Brahms's festive overture and Liszt's virtuosic concerto performed by young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor who makes his Proms debut. After the interval Belohlavek leads orchestra, chorus and soloists in Janacek's extraordinary celebration of Slavic culture.

FRI 20:15 Twenty Minutes (b012fvcf)
Janacek's Beliefs

The first concert of the 2011 Proms features a performance of Leos Janacek's 'Glagolitic Mass'. The liturgy he chose to set was in Old Church Slavonic, rather than Latin, and Glagolitic refers to the script in which it was written.

But that Janacek should compose a mass at all is strange. He declared himself an atheist refused to, as he said, 'even go into church to shelter from the rain' and he dismissed organised religion as 'concentrated death. Tombs under the floor, bones on the altar, pictures full of torture and dying. Rituals, prayers, chants - death and nothing but death. I don't want to have anything to do with it'.

But he had grown up in an Augustinian monastery where he took charge of its choir. That's a musical legacy not easily jettisoned. In the letters he wrote to Kamila Stosslova he refers to God constantly, to her Jewish God and his Catholic one. Janacek's letters to Kamila document the impassioned relationship between the 74 year old composer and a married woman 37 years younger. He emerges as something of a pantheist, seeing something of God in every living creature.

The playwright Paul Allen has used these 'Intimate Letters' in a monologue he has written, premiered recently by Daniel Evans. In the interval feature before the performance of the Glagolitic Mass in the first Prom Concert of 2011 Paul explores the contradictory nature of Janacek's beliefs, with readings from the 'Intimate Letters' and a contribution from Janacek's biographer, John Tyrrell.

Producer: Julian May.

After the interval Belohlavek leads orchestra, chorus and soloists in Janacek's extraordinary celebration of Slavic culture.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b012fvd0)
Playwright Billy Roche, Chuquai Billy - Native American Comedian, Poet James Davies, Proms Poetry Competition

Radio 3's Cabaret of the Word presented by Ian McMillan. Actor Simone Kirby reads a new story by playwright Billy Roche, about a woman who has run away from her husband in Ireland and he finds her working in a pub in West London. Billy joins Ian from Dublin to discuss the story, and talks about the importance of its setting - the pub, like the story, is called the Dog and Bone. He'll also be explaining how he's bent on preserving the vagaries of the Irish vernacular in his work, because he thinks contemporary Irish voices are changing with outside influences.

Chuquai Billy is the only Native American stand up comedian in the UK and he performs on the Verb. The humour is self deprecating but Billy says that's developed since he's lived in England rather than intrinsic to his Chocktaw and Lakota Sioux tribal background. He had to 'google' the meaning of his own name as he was never taught it, and was bitterly disappointed to find out it has no connection to the wilds of North America.

James Davies describes himself as a poet and 'literary activist' and works on the spoken word scene in his home town of Manchester. His new book, Plants, contains 'unmade poems' - poems that he has written in the past and deleted. Like the poem 'Apples'.

Apples
Written, typed, altered, deleted.

Poet Carol Watts joins Ian and James to give a history of the unmade poem.

And on the first night of the Proms, a reminder about Radio 3's poetry competition. Ian writes a poem inspired by the rarely performed Rossini opera, William Tell; and music critic Susan Hitch talks about the myth of William Tell. To enter the competition, listeners are invited to write a poem based on a piece of music from this year's Prom Concerts.

Producer : Dymphna Flynn.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b00v7ybs)
Architecture: The Fourth R

Architecture and Its Public

Making shelter is a fundamental human activity, so, asks Former President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, Sunand Prasad - why don't we talk about it? The way we build reflects society's values and aspirations - but also its fears. Sunand Prasad takes us on a journey through Architecture, from the India he grew up in, to the Utopian vision of Le Corbusier, from the concrete carbuncles of Post-War Britain, to the design that will combat Climate Change.

In this fifth and final programme, he tells the story of the Battle of Covent Garden - how one man took on the planners to stop the wholesale demolition of a part of Britain's past. Sunand argues that all of us have the power to shape planning. We can all make our voices heard to ensure good decision-making and good design. Above all, he calls for a fundamental reconnection between us and our shelter - and for future generations to be educated in the value of Architecture, the Fourth R.


FRI 23:00 Sacred Sites (b012fvq3)
