The Spirit of Schubert

1815 Day

The Spirit of Schubert - 1815 Day.

With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life. Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers. When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completions of his music and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC Radio 3 unravels the spirit of this prolific composer.

Today we celebrate the year 1815 when Schubert wrote nearly 22,000 bars of music, much of it in the current repertoire 200 years on. This feat represents a productivity unparalleled in the history of any art. Where did that productivity come from and how did he physically create and write down such a vast amount of music? Throughout the day at 1115, 1400 and 1745 Tom Service introduces The Schubert Lab exploring issues and answering questions about the composer's life and music.

Martin Handley presents Radio 3's classical Breakfast Show.

SAT 19:30 Opera on 3 (b01dn7hl)
The Spirit of Schubert

Fierrabras

BBC Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert continues with Fierrabras, Schubert's last completed opera and an early example of the German romantic operatic style. The story is set in the courts of the Frankish King Charlemagne and the Moorish Prince Boland. Boland's son and daughter are both in love with members of the Frankish court. While his daughter, Florinda wins her knight, his son, Fierrabras realises his love, Emma is already in love with somebody else.

Because of the vogue for Italian opera in the 1820s, especially Rossini, Schubert's Fierrabras was overlooked by the Kärntnertor Theatre who commissioned it, and it didn't get its first performance for another 60 years. It has never really entered the repertory, but is a dramatic tale of love, honour, courage and chivalry with some glorious music. It's given here by a stellar cast including Karita Mattila and Josef Protschka, conducted by Claudio Abbado.

Presented by Andrew McGregor

Emma.....Karita Mattila (soprano)
König Karl.....Robert Holl (bass)
Roland.....Thomas Hampson (baritone)

SAT 22:00 Play Schubert for Me (b01dn7hn)
1815 Day

As part of Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert, Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents late night Schubert requests and dedications.

Write to her with your Schubert requests and dedications. Email: schubert@bbc.co.uk

Live in the studio across the week she'll also feature exclusive Schubert Remixed sessions, with contemporary artists from across the genres reinterpreting some of Schubert's great songs live in the studio.

Including at 1130, the Schubert Essay. Schubert was described as the "musician who also seemed a magician" in appealing to so many. But attempts to explain both his achievements and mood swings through theory, often fall short of explanation. The writer, philosopher and retired medical doctor Raymond Tallis re examines the neurological and psychological evidence of a composer who increasingly meditated on the darker side of the human psyche and human relationships.

Schubert and Friends

The Spirit of Schubert - Schubert and Friends

With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life. Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers. When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completions of his music and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC Radio 3 unravels the spirit of this prolific composer.

Today we celebrate Schubert and his Friends. The spirit of camaraderie reflected in much of Schubert's music was essential to the life of the composer and his close-knit circle - friends in music, other arts and other professions, who wrote texts for dozens of his songs and made for the psychological well-being which could only aid his creativity and ease the later bouts of illness and depression. Today The Spirit of Schubert investigates how important those friends were to the creativity and productivity of a composer who lived life to the full.

Throughout the day at 1000, 1500 and 1745 Tom Service presents The Schubert Lab - exploring the issues of the day and answering questions about Schubert's life and music.

Martin Handley presents Radio 3's classical Breakfast Show.

The Spirit of Schubert

Schubert and Friends

Schubert - In Words and Music

Continuing BBC Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert, the words in this special edition of Words and Music come from letters by Schubert himself, read by Russell Tovey, and from letters, diaries and remininscences from his wide circle of friends, read by Anthony Calf. There are also extracts from fascinating contemporary documents including the composer's school reports, the dismissive official view of his suitability for conscription, and the poignant inventory of his paltry possessions, listed after his death.

The music is, of course, all by Schubert, a soundtrack to the life and death of this short-lived genius.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01dtv8g)

SUN 21:15 Claiming Schubert (b01dn7tp)
Sir John Tusa explores the many and varied ways in which, since his death, the composer Franz Schubert has been used and reinvented in politics, art and literature. Who has claimed Schubert - and why? And what are the different things that he has come to represent since his death in 1828?

For many decades across parts of Europe there was a Romantic interpretation of Schubert as lovelorn, naive and at one with nature.

He has also been seen in a feminine context, especially after the composer Robert Schumann described him as having feminine qualities when compared to Beethoven.

But Schubert has also been appropriated by political leaders. The emerging Christian Socialist Party in 20th-century Vienna used Schubert to exemplify a nostalgic, non-multicultural way of life. This fitted in with their anti-Semitic and anti-liberal policies. John explores the significance of this use of Schubert and how this link with fascism developed throughout the century.

And John hears how the novelist George Eliot and the painter Gustav Klimt refashioned Schubert and brought a different view of him to a wider public.

Producer: Emma Kingsley

This programme was first broadcast in 2012.


SUN 22:00 Play Schubert for Me (b01dnbz6)

As part of Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert, Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents late night Schubert requests and dedications.

The Spirit of Schubert

Schubert and Vienna

Schubert and Vienna

With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life. Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers. When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completions of his music and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC Radio 3 unravels the spirit of this prolific composer.

Schubert's fortunes as a composer were largely conditioned by the musical scene in the city where he was born and which he seldom left. Few pieces are not in some way connected with the institutions, societies, buildings, professional musicians and businesses of Vienna at its height as the hub of musical endeavour in the western world. Today we ask what was the magic of Vienna, and how did it shape Schubert's music?

Throughout the day at 1000, 1500 and 1745 Tom Service presents The Schubert Lab - exploring the issues of the day and answering questions about Schubert's life and music.

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's Breakfast Show celebrating The Spirit of Schubert including between 8.00 and 8.30 the world premiere of Brian Newbould's completion of Schubert's Minuet and Trio D2f.

MON 22:00 Play Schubert for Me (b01dncj1)
Schubert and Vienna

As part of Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert, Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents late night Schubert requests and dedications.

Write to her with your Schubert requests and dedications. Email: schubert@bbc.co.uk

Live in the studio across the week she'll also feature exclusive Schubert Remixed sessions, with contemporary artists from across the genres reinterpreting some of Schubert's great songs live in the studio.

Including at 11.30pm The Schubert Essay. Schubert idolised Beethoven: he dedicated his work to him, was torch-bearer at his funeral and requested to be buried next to him in the Währinger Ortsfriedhof. Even though they lived in the same city for most of their lives, sources are unreliable when it comes to how many times they actually met, and the conversations they had are fable. So as part of The Spirit of Schubert, this essay imagines what might have happened when Schubert met his hero.

TUE 06:30 Breakfast (b01dtvnj)
The Spirit of Schubert

The Outdoors

The Outdoors

With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life. Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers. When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completions of his music and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC Radio 3 unravels the spirit of this prolific composer.

Throughout the day at 1000, 1500 and 1745 Tom Service presents The Schubert Lab - exploring the issues of the day and answering questions about Schubert's life and music.

So many of Schubert's songs reflect his love of nature, whilst his chamber and orchestral works were at times shaped by the wealth of imagery offered by the outdoors. As a composer who was able to represent the outdoors often as well as any painting of the period, today we investigate how his music translates the natural world into images in the mind.

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's Breakfast Show celebrating The Spirit of Schubert.

Jeremy has fond memories of playing this uniquely intimate but still profound music.

Throughout the day at 1000, 1500 and 1745 Tom Service presents The Schubert Lab - exploring the issues of the day and answering questions about Schubert's life and music.

Schubert found such musical mileage in the concept of 'The Wanderer' that he reworked music from the song of that name within his 'Wanderer' Fantasy for piano. Images of alienation, rejection, despair and death often go hand in hand with the portrayal of rudderless peregrination. Today we ask what was Schubert looking for, and what did he find?

Schubert in Concert

Paul Lewis, Mark Padmore, Takacs Quartet

As part of The Spirit of Schubert, Clemency Burton-Hill presents three masterworks written between 1822 and 1826 and performed at the Schwetzingen and Schwarzenburg Schubertiade by some of today's leading Schubertians.
Paul Lewis brings his profound technical and musical mastery to Schubert's four movement piano fantasy of 1822, whose slow movement variations are based on the song Der Wanderer. He then joins tenor, Mark Padmore in the Angelika Kauffmann Concert Hall, Schwartzenburg for Schubert's first song cycle, to which he gave the title: The lovely maid of the mill, a song cycle to poems by Wilhelm Müller. Composed by the twenty six year old Schubert in 1823, just a few years after Muller published his poems, the cycle charts the joys and travails of the miller who is unlucky in love and after much travail, drowns himself in the brook to which he finds himself inexorably drawn. The Takacs Quartet then perform one of the great quartets of Schubert's maturity, a work which, though written in 1826, was, like so many othes, only publshed many years after the composer's death.

The Spirit of Schubert

Classical or Romantic?

Schubert - Classical or Romantic?

With 200 hours of broadcasting and more than a thousand performances, over eight and a half days, BBC Radio 3 presents the biggest ever celebration of Schubert, his music and his life. Including performances of all his completed music and unique broadcasts of his unfinished works, Radio 3 devotes its entire schedule to one of the greatest ever composers. When he died at the age of 31 in 1828, he left a vast body of work, and with live daily performances across the UK, specially commissioned completions of his music and unprecedented analysis of the man behind the music, now, for the first time on this scale, BBC Radio 3 unravels the spirit of this prolific composer.

Throughout the day at 1000, 1500 and 1745 Tom Service presents The Schubert Lab - exploring the issues of the day and answering questions about Schubert's life and music.

From his earliest days Schubert, like Mozart and Beethoven, aimed to excel across the whole of instrumental and vocal composition and that put his roots firmly in classical soil. Inspiration from outside music soon coloured his thinking though, pushing him towards a richer harmonic and textural music - ahead of the true Romantics. Today we ask, what was Schubert at heart - Classical or Romantic?

Petroc Trelawny presents Radio 3's Breakfast Show celebrating The Spirit of Schubert.

Champs Hill: Michael Collins and Friends

Radio 3's celebration of The Spirit of Schubert continues live from Champs Hill in Sussex. Sean Rafferty introduces a performance of one of Schubert's best loved masterpieces, the Octet in F, D803.

In 1824 Count Ferdinand Troyer, a talented amateur clarinettist proposed to Schubert that he write a follow-up to Beethoven's immensely successful Septet. Schubert duly obliged, adding a second violin to the line-up and creating a work that was quintessentially his own.

Acclaimed Clarinettist Michael Collins is joined by the young Doric Quartet, as well as horn player Richard Watkins, bassoonist Robin O'Neill and Double Bassist Lynda Houghton to play this enduringly popular work.

The Spirit of Schubert

Die Verschworenen, Der Vierjahrige Posten

The Spirit of Schubert. Penny Gore presents 2 dramatic works by Schubert: First, Die Verschworenen (D.787) a one act Singspiel which translates roughly as "Domestic Warfare". It is an adaption of the bawdy comedy "Lysistrata" by the fifth century BC Athenian Aristophanes, transposed to Medieval Germany, where the knights, on their way home from war, encounter a very personal, but effective type of "industrial action" by their neglected womenfolk.

Secondly, another one act Singspiel "Der Vierjahrige Posten" (The 4 year posting) at just half an hour, it relates the tale of an army deserter and his wife, a local girl. 4 years on and the army returns to the village and the crafty deserter manages to convince his superiors that he has been on sentry duty for the whole 4 years - awaiting further orders. Suitably impressed by his dedication to duty, the soldier is rewarded by being given his release papers.

Today we ask who is Schubert? Clearly a man, trapped in a body vulnerable to the fortunes and misfortunes of the day, the whims of others, health, sickness, temptation and disease. But also a creative persona, capable of sublime visions in which intellect, sensuality and spirituality meet with unique consequences. We try to get to the essence of the man, and what the music tells of him.

In turning to the streets of 19th century Vienna, "a night in the arms of Venus lead to a lifetime on Mercury" Whilst uncertainty exists about the cause of Schubert's death from syphilis, what do his attempts at mercury remedies reveal about his final few years? The medical historian and author of Romanticism and the Sciences Andrew Cunningham, examines The UnRomantic death of the mercurial Schubert.
