SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01kjtw6)
Judith Kerr

Michael Berkeley's guest on Private Passions this week is the best-selling children's author Judith Kerr. Now 89, Judith was born into a distinguished pre-war German Jewish intellectual family: her father, Alfred Kerr, was a well known journalist and critic, and her mother, Julia, a composer. The family fled from Berlin in 1933 after Hitler's rise to power, and lived in Switzerland and Paris before reaching London in 1936. In the 1950s Judith met and married Nigel Kneale, author of the famous BBC TV science fiction series Quatermass. Their son Matthew Kneale has followed in his parents' footsteps, becoming an acclaimed novelist, while their daughter Tacy is an artist.

Judith is both a writer and an illustrator, best known for her children's books, including the much-loved Mog series (about a cat), 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' and the novel for young adults 'When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit', which is based on her own experiences as a child refugee, and won the 1974 Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis.

Judith's musical choices include a fragment of an opera about Einstein written by her parents; an excerpt from the final scene of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni; the Jewish Memorial Prayer El Malei Rachamim performed at the 2001 International Holocaust Memorial Day in London; Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, which was a favourite of her father, and was played at his funeral; part of 'Mars' from Holst's The Planets, which served as the theme music for Quatermass; The Dance of the Knights from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, which was a favourite of her husband's, and finally her own personal favourite, the Kyrie from Mozart's Mass in C minor, K427.

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b013xq9t)
The Exotic

Words and Music on the theme of The Exotic. Readings by Greta Scacchi and Simon Woods.
Distant lands full of heat, opulence and mysterious inhabitants; lost civilisations full of entrancing women and god-like warriors have provided vivid inspiration to authors and composers across the centuries. The Exotic has meant different things to different generations: from Shakespeare's visions of a savage island full of unnerving sights and sounds, informed by the era of exploration and brutal empire building in which he lived; to the rich visions of the romantics: Coleridge's Xanadu and Byron's Childe Harolde who wonders in landscapes described with the linguistic lushness of love poetry. Musical and literary experiences of exoticism are often about western artists seduced by a vision of otherness which is little more than a mirage: from Mozart's typically eighteenth century take on a Turkish harem to Kipling's colonial representations of India. Yet from the excitement of imagined faraway lands and people comes the lush beauty of Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade and the delicate orientalism of Debussy's Pagodes. Gustave Flaubert's entrancing Salammbô and Shakespeare's glittering Cleopatra offer visions of exotic womanhood; the goddess who commands adulation and fear in equal measure - like the distant corners of the earth from which she comes.

Producer: Georgia Mann.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01kjtwj)
Think Negative!

A celebration of nay-saying, refusal, and creative contrariness in cultural history.

We live in a culture that puts a premium on positivity and frowns on negativity. The poet, novelist and professor of Comparative Literature at Oxford University, Patrick McGuinness argues that, on the contrary, negative thinking is vital to the life of the mind and the progress of thought. He draws on a long fascination with "negative spaces", inspired by his youthful experiences of Bucharest at the end of the Ceaucescu era, a vanishing "city of lost walks", explored in his acclaimed first novel. His current research involves another "negative city", Bruges, which, after its link to the North Sea receded, was cut off from the commerce that once sustained it. Following the huge success of Georges Rodenbach's novel Bruges-la-Morte in 1892, a cult of "dead-Bruges" developed. It was considered the "anti-Paris" of the 19th century, a dark version of the City of Light, and drew tourists for that very reason. McGuinness recreates this anti-grand-tour with Belgian poet Stefan Hertmans.

Along the way he reflects how our current era is more likely to repress negativity than make a cult of it. Neuroscientist Tali Sharot argues that, like it or not, we have evolved an "optimism bias", while cultural commentator Barbara Ehrenereich claims that "positive thinking has ruined America and the world". McGuinness traces the changing role of negativity across cultural history: the via negativa of medieval theology; the negative dialectics of modern philosophy; the discovery of negative numbers in maths. Geoff Dyer and John Banville discuss the writers they admire who exemplify and inspire the creative possibilities of negative thinking.

Produced by Paul Quinn. A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.

First broadcast in July 2012.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01kjtwl)
The Go-Between

Another chance to hear the last radio drama performance of the acclaimed actor Richard Griffiths, who died in March.

In L.P. Hartley's classic novel, a boy is betrayed by a sophisticated young rich woman and her farmer lover who use him to ferry letters back and forth in the blazing summer of 1900. It's best known from Joseph Losey's 1970 film, which focused on the main plot line, but on re-reading the book, adaptor Frances Byrnes found within it another drama, perfect for radio, in which an old man finds a boyhood diary and is forced to unlock the trauma inside.

Re-visited by that summer for the first time since it happened, the older man (Richard Griffiths) turns detective. Leo, in his 60s, finds a locked diary in his attic; it was written in 1900, the last time he lived with any sense of possibility. Leo realises that his tidy life has been a living death and that that summer was to blame.

Missing from the film - and working beautifully for the radio - is a clear incremental, emotional journey of a fragile boy-man, who lives in his imagination and is destroyed by an increasingly separate reality. From the beginning the boy (Oscar Kennedy in his first major radio role) is vulnerable - fatherless, socially one step down, the child of a pacifist. Leo struggles to be made whole again; his past and present, reality and imagination, re-integrated.

SUN 22:00 World Routes (b01kjtwn)
In October 2011 Lucy Duran travelled to Mali in West Africa to meet rapper Amkoullel and hear the music of young Malians. On the streets of Bamako she met and recorded musicians from Bambara, Fulani and Bobo ethnic groups, all of whom are drawing on their traditional roots and making music for the future. She attended the musical wedding parties that spread all over the city each weekend, the informal street discussions called Grins where young men discuss politics, music and local gossip, and went cassette shopping to find out how music piracy is affecting young musicians.

Since March 2012 Mali has been in the grip of an unprecedented political crisis, one of the most serious since the country gained independence from France in 1960. With Tuareg rebels controlling the north of the country, and political instability still rife in the capital, reports are that the music that resounded on the streets of Bamako when World Routes visited has now fallen silent.

On this week's World Routes hear the young, vital sound of one of Africa's most musical nations, before it was plunged into political crisis.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kjvkc)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman's Early Life

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

Michael Nyman's music is instantly recognisable, frequently using repetitive piano chords, distinctive instrumental combinations often including saxophones, and yet there is a familiarity in much of the music, sometimes with a hint of Mozart or Purcell. Nyman rocketed to fame in 1992 with his score for the film The Piano. The soundtrack went on to sell over 3 million copies, and won Nyman an Ivor Novello award. Prior to this there had already been many successes, including his collaboration with Peter Greenaway on films such as The Draughtsman's Contract (1982), and The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989), or music for the stage such as Nyman's opera, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat (1986).

Yet despite these accolades, including BBC commissions, the Michael Nyman Band performing at the BBC Proms and all over the world, and other awards for the composer, Nyman remains a controversial figure. Considered by some as a musical archaeologist, Nyman's use, quotation and transformation of the music of other composers, has often led to harsh criticism. Donald Macleod in exclusive interview with the composer, looks at the life and music of Michael Nyman, including more recent artistic activities as a photographer and film maker.

Michael Nyman's early life is a fascinating account of a boy, travelling around London, collecting things such as bus tickets, matchboxes and lolly wrappers. This Nyman of the past comes to life in the composer's opera, Man and Boy: Dada, as Nyman himself explains in conversation with Donald Macleod.

Music didn't play an important part in Nyman's formative years, until he met Leslie Winters at the Sir George Monoux Grammar School, who encouraged Nyman to explore music including playing the piano. Nyman frequently performs at the piano, directing the Michael Nyman Band. Music from the film Wonderland offers the opportunity of hearing Nyman performing solo at the piano.

Nyman went on to study music at the Royal Academy of Music, and then King's College, London. It was 1964 when Nyman went to Wardour Castle, and through his experiences there of serialism, he became disillusioned as a composer, and subsequently was silent for a decade; although he found other outlets as a musicologist and music critic. By the late 70s, Nyman was composing again, including his music for four or more pianos, 1-100.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhs)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman's Early Collaborations

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

By 1977, Nyman composed In Re Don Giovanni, which has been hailed as his first 'original' work. As a youth when Nyman's contemporaries were listening to pop music, Nyman was listening to Mozart. The Catalogue Song in Mozart's opera Don Giovanni stayed in Nyman's memory, and in In Re Don Giovanni it receives a truly Nymanesque treatment, subjected to rock 'n' roll, minimalism, and that emerging Nyman sound world.

During the 70s and 80s, there were a number of important collaborations for Nyman, including touring with Steve Reich in the UK. Another important collaborator was Peter Greenaway, and this relationship led to a number of significant and successful films, including The Draughtsman's Contract (1982).

London

In a year when all eyes are on London, Matthew Sweet explores London's place as a world city, and asks if London really is the centre of arts and culture it claims to be. At the top of Tower Bridge he looks down on the city with Neil O'Brien of the think tank Policy Exchange and Aditya Chakrabortty of the Guardian and asks why they believe London is now so different from the rest of the UK that it has effectively become another country - and what they think should be done about it.

At the Southbank Centre Matthew meets with its artistic director Jude Kelly, the novelist Lesley Lokko and the culture editor of Monocle Robert Bound to debate London's claim to be the world's greatest city of culture. Strolling through the streets of the capital, Radio 3 New Generation Thinker Nandini Das reflects on the long history of immigration to London and argues that newcomers have profoundly affected the English imagination.

And Matthew Sweet joins the 'Gentle Author' of the Spitalfields Life blog on a tour of the East End of London to meet a new immigrant artist as well as some characters who have been part of life on Brick Lane since they were born.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhv)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman the Music Archaeologist

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

Michael Nyman explores with Donald Macleod, his interest in music recycling. Many of Nyman's works take existing material by other composers, or previous works by Nyman himself, to create something new. One example of this is Memorial, used in the film The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989), but linked to previous projects.

Nyman has also been keen to explore other cultures and their musical heritage for inspiration and potential collaborations. Nyman's second String Quartet (1988) uses rhythmic templates from the South Indian Bharata Natyam dance tradition, to create a work which links East and West, and was originally intended for solo dance performance. The programme ends with another exploration of another culture, in The Upside-Down Violin (1992).

The beginning of the 90s sees Nyman's first concerto. Where the Bee Dances (1991) is a concerto for saxophone, and recycles material composed for the film Prospero's Books, which never came to full fruition, marking the end of the Greenaway and Nyman collaboration.

WED 19:00 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01kkp33)
Cheltenham Festival Kraggerud/Beynon/Isserlis etc

Live from the Cheltenham Music Festival 2012

Presented by Martin Handley

A concert of chamber works from 1915, including two of Debussy's final works.

One of a series of concerts at this year's Cheltenham Music Festival exploring music written between 1914 and 1918, tonight's concert features pieces from the year 1915, including two of Debussy's final chamber works. The First World War proved to be a turning point in music, with some composers clinging to Romanticism while others were forging a new way ahead. Reduced to almost complete silence at the outbreak of war, Debussy 'rediscovered music' in the summer of 1915, in a villa on the channel coast at Pourville, writing a handful of chamber works in quick succession. Tonight Emily Beynon, Jennifer Stumm and Sally Pryce begin with Debussy's penultimate work, his 'Sonata for flute, viola and harp', and at the centre of the concert is Steven Isserlis' performance of Debussy's 'Sonata for cello and piano' with Connie Shih. Szymanowski too broke a creative deadlock in 1915 and found his voice with his 'Mythes' for violin and piano, influenced by Debussy. Henning Kraggerud and Christian Ihle Hadland join forces to perform 'Mythes', and to close the concert the Escher Quartet are joined by Matthew Hunt for Reger's Clarinet Quintet, the composer's final work.


WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01kkp35)
James Fenton, Tommie Smith, Ibsen, Jonathan Healey

James Fenton

James Fenton is one of the most compelling voices of our time - a major poet, a front line reporter and a wildly successful librettist. In Night Waves this evening he talks to Rana Mitter about the nature of inspiration, politics and love - all powerful themes in his latest collection, Yellow Tulips, which draws on four decades of verse as well as his recent unpublished work.

Yellow Tulips is out now from Faber

Tommie Smith

At the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico, two African American athletes - Tommie Smith and John Carlos - made a silent but controversial protest, as they received their Olympic medals, by raising their fists in the Black Power Salute. It was met with hostility and they were banned from the Olympics for life. But the image of the two men - along with Australian sprinter Peter Norman - standing on the dais to receive their awards became an iconic one. A new film, Salute, looks at the lead-up to that life-changing moment and what inspired these men make this protest.

Over forty years on, Tommie Smith discusses how black politics has changed since then and how, despite many landmark achievements such as the election of an African American President to the White House, black politics still struggles to find its place in British and European politics.

Salute is released in cinemas this Friday certificate PG

Henrik Ibsen

As a rare production of Ibsen's first play, St John's Night, opens, Susannah Clapp considers the gloomy Scandinavian's under-appreciated comic side.

St John's Night by Henrik Ibsen is at the Jermyn Street Theatre in London until 4th August.

New Generation Thinker

Jonathan Healey considers how 17th Century Britain finally beat the spectre of famine once and for all.

Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman and The Piano

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

In 1992, Michael Nyman's score for the film The Piano, was a huge success. The soundtrack went on to sell over 3 million copies, and won Nyman an Ivor Novello Award. Despite this great achievement, Nyman has felt that this has in some way colored people's perception of him when composing away from film. Further film successes have followed, including the soundtrack to the science fiction film, Gattaca (1997).

The 90s have seen for Nyman a number of significant works away from film, including concertos for harpsichord, saxophone and cello, and also a concerto for Trombone and Orchestra (1995). This piece is a dramatic work, and unlike many of Nyman's scores, is based entirely on original material.

Nyman has previously said when talking about his film music, that visual materials have never inspired him to compose. Exclusively in interview with Donald Macleod, Nyman discusses his process for writing music for another visual medium, opera, specifically his work Facing Goya (2000).

Thursday Opera Matinee

Thursday Opera Matinee.

Penny Gore presents a performance of Donizetti's sparkling comedy L'elisir d'amore - The Elixir of Love - starring Juan Florez and Diana Damrau recorded earlier this year at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. To the usual operatic plot of the tenor and the baritone being rivals for the love of the soprano this witty score adds a wonderful comic bass role - Dulcamara, the 'quack doctor' whose magic potion (the Elixir of Love itself) causes a good deal of merriment and confusion. All ends happily, despite the moment when Nemorino contemplates Adina's 'furtive tear'... but that gives the opera its best-known aria 'Una furtiva lagrima' - Juan Diego Florez's New York performance of which was so good he sang it twice.

Donizetti: L'Elisir d'Amore

Nemorino, a simple peasant, in love with Adina ..... Juan Diego Florez (tenor),

2012 Proms Preview

On the eve of the 2012 BBC Proms Petroc Trelawny and Louise Fryer preview the season and pick out some of the many highlights to look forward to this summer.

This year young people are at the heart of the Proms with numerous youth orchestras and ensembles taking part: from the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester, and the orchestra of the Juilliard School in New York, to our many national youth orchestras, choirs and ensembles. We're joined in the studio by members of the National Youth Brass Band to look ahead to their performance on the 12th August and play live.

With numerous world premieres of new works this season we'll also be discussing the wealth of new music to look forward to with featured composer Helen Grime.

Mezzo-soprano Alice Coote and harpsichordist Laurence Cummings join Petroc and Louise to discuss their appearances this season and pick out their personal highlights, and we'll be hearing from conductors Kristjan Jarvi and Ilan Volkov who are at the helm of two evenings devoted to the giants of twentieth century American music - Leonard Bernstein and, in his 100th anniversary year, John Cage.

Plus we drop in on final rehearsals for the first night which features not one but four conductors, and catch up with Proms Director Roger Wright.


THU 22:00 Night Waves (b01kkp42)
LS Lowry, Thomas Kuhn, Magic Mike, Voyeurism

Philip Dodd will be casting an irreverent eye over the reputations of two figures who loom large in the 20th century -- the painter L S Lowry and the historian of science, Thomas Kuhn. Lowry though wildly popular divides critical opinion. His detractors claim that he lacks vision and technique. His supporters say that's academic snobbery and betrays a kind of class prejudice. As a new Lowry show opens in Salford and the Tate prepares to mount a major retrospective next year Philip is joined by the Booker Prize winner and Lowry fan, Howard Jacobson and the art critic, James Malpas to consider the nature of the painter's achievement.

Kuhn may not be quite such a household name but one of his concepts has entered the language and has been part of the way that scientists think for the past fifty years. All of us will have come across the notion of a " paradigm shift " even if we're not always sure what it means. The philosopher and Kuhnian, Rupert Read will be here to provide enlightenment and the science writer, Gabrielle Walker, will consider whether Kuhn is still relevant today.

Plenty for the mind then but there's also something more visceral in the programme - voyeurism. Steven Soderbergh's new film, Magic Mike, invites us into the world of the male stripper where it's permissible to look but not to touch - unless you want to break the law... and then there's Mark Wallinger's, Diana, a peepshow homage to Titian at the National Gallery. Amanda Hopkinson and Geoff Dyer will be scrutinising both and offering their assessment of why voyeurism seems to be on the rise.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhz)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman: Composer, Photographer and Filmmaker

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

In recent years, Michael Nyman has had to juggle a very busy schedule performing in, and directing the Michael Nyman Band, composing, and other recent activities as both a photographer and filmmaker. Nyman in exclusive interview with Donald Macleod, discusses his recent career.

Collaboration remains an important part of Nyman's career as a composer. This has included working with the vocalist and song writer David McAlmont, recycling a number of older works by Nyman, and turning them into new songs. These works, such as 'Secrets, Accusations and Charges', or 'City of Turin', focus upon contemporary issues, sometimes sensitive, and sometimes poignant.

The final work, Three ways of describing rain (2000), is another example of Nyman collaborating across cultures. East meets West, and Nyman has described this as a "coming together" with Indian classical music cultures. It is a re-release, hot off the press, and Nyman explores this work with Donald Macleod.
