SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b01l7x4d)
Viola: Air on a C String

Writer and string player Fiona Maddocks takes an analytical look at the viola. Why did so many great composers choose the most misunderstood and enigmatic string instrument as their favourite? What is it about its tone quality and the role that it plays in musical texture - right at the heart of the harmonic engine room - that made it so attractive, and why has it become the butt of jokes? With contributions from soloists PInchas Zukerman and Maxim Rysanov, Paul Cassidy of the Brodsky Quartet, violist/composers Brett Dean and Sally Beamish, and baroque violist Annette Isserlis.

Music includes works by Bach, Purcell, Mozart Beethoven, Schubert, Janacek, Smetana, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Hindemith, Britten, Vaughan Williams, Walton, and Bartok.

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Orlando Gibbons's The Cryes of London uses viols to accompany street vendors' cries, while Steve Martland's modern-day equivalent uses a marimba along with the voices in traditional songs such as 'Oranges and Lemons'. There's also the world premiere of Julian Philips's Sorowfull Songes, which sets an excerpt from the first anthology of English poetry, Tottel's Miscellany, published in London in 1557.

For this special project, the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles has painstakingly recreated these early instruments, and they are played by musicians from the Royal College of Music and the French conservatoires of Paris and Orsay, reviving these unique musical textures as they might have been heard 300 years ago.

SAT 18:00 Words and Music (b015zsdq)
The Parish Priest

Music, poetry and prose about the day to day life of the parish priest, with actors Celia Imrie and Michael Kitchen. Priests appear in major and minor roles in literature from Biblical times to the present day and frequently play a pivotal or catalyst part in the dramatic plot twists. Think of Mr Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, or Obadiah Slope in Trollope's Barchester novels. Many priests have themselves been poets, such as R.S. Thomas and John Donne, whose work is featured along with the view points of long suffering vicars' wives, often the power behind the parish throne. Priests are often portrayed in novels and poetry as distinctive characters who are either malevolent, self absorbed, objects of desire or saintly. Rarely are they ordinary, frequently they are comical. Music surrounds the life of the church and the programme features works by Handel, J.S. Bach, William Harris, James MacMillan and Saint-Saens , and includes poetry and prose by, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, John Pritchard (Bishop of Oxford) and Thomas Hardy.
Producer Helen Garrison.

SAT 20:40 Twenty Minutes (b01l8n1g)
Are You Musical?

Are you 'musical'? Tchaikovsky's Pathetique and the making of the modern homosexual...

In a scene in E. M. Foster's novel, "Maurice", a group of pre-war Cambridge undergraduates enjoy a performance of Tchaikovsky's Pathetique Symphony on a pianola in one of their rooms. Later on, Maurice Hall, the hero, learns that the composer was gay. In the novel, the music of Tchaikovsky, like the literature of Ancient Greece, becomes a private symbol of male homosexuality to be shared and understood by a group of like-minded initiates.

Other writers and artists felt the influence of the composer too. A group of social radicals embraced Tchaikovsky and his music as an instance of how creativity and sexuality were intimately linked. The popular use of the word 'musical' to mean "homosexual" shows just how intimate this link was.

In this interval feature, the writer and musicologist Dr. Philip Bullock looks at what was known about Tchaikovsky in Britain before the Great War, tracing his changing reputation through popular biographies, programme notes and the gay subculture of late Victorian and Edwardian Britain.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.

SAT 22:10 Between the Ears (b018smy5)
Obituary Notice

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, three times a day local radio station WPAQ 740AM proudly broadcasts obituaries of local people. Established by Ralph Epperson in 1948, WPAQ was founded to preserve a wholesome way of life on the airwaves, broadcasting local Old Time and Gospel music, firebrand local preachers, and the daily reporting of obituary notices. Today, to an outsider it seems a morbid anachronism, yet people across the town of Mt Airy tune in on a daily basis, especially to catch news of those who have died.

As well as exploring the Radio's archive to build a picture of this wholesome way of life over the last 60 years, local people talk about how the town has changed since the obituary reading began. From a famed and thriving industrial town making socks, farming tobacco, building furniture and mining granite, Mt Airy has witnessed the decline of the American South, and the flight of jobs from its rural areas. Almost all the industry has gone and the town is struggling to find its place in a new non-industrial economy. Those who live there are concerned about the future for the town's young people, but are full of nostalgia for the past, and love the close knit community.

Whether the daily Obituary Notices are for the local individuals who pass each day, taking with them another chapter of this part of America's unique rural history, or whether they are a collective sigh for a disappearing way of life is not clear - life in some form will go on in the American South, and WPAQ will still broadcast obituaries.

All the material for this programme was recorded in and around the town of Mt Airy, North Carolina. Drawing heavily on local field recordings, the reminiscence of local people, and the archive of WPAQ 740AM, to create an aural portrait of a community of people united by a slowly disappearing way of life.

Produced by Peter Meanwell.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01l8nvq)
Adrian Cadbury

In the first of three Olympics-related editions of Private Passions, Michael Berkeley goes to Birmingham to meet Sir Adrian Cadbury in a house once owned by one of his Victorian forebears who founded the Cadbury chocolate dynasty. Adrian was Chairman of the family firm for 24 years. He has been a pioneer in stimulating the debate on corporate governance, and produced the Cadbury report, a code of best practice for corporate governance around the world.

Educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge, Adrian rowed in the 1952 Boat Race, and then in the British coxless four in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics. He joined the Cadbury business later that year and became Chairman of Cadbury Ltd in 1965, retiring in 1989. He was a Director of the Bank of England 1970-94, and also of IBM. He was Chancellor of Aston University for 25 years until 2004.

His choices begin with Beethoven's First Symphony, a piece he played with the school orchestra, and gave him a life-long love for Beethoven. He loves opera, and has chosen 'Che gelida manina' from Puccini's La boheme, sung by Jussi Bjorling, and the chorus Va pensiero from Verdi's Nabucco, as well as a march from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro played by the band of the Coldstream Guards. He remembers hearing a carol by Elizabeth Poston in the King's College Chapel Christmas service, while his remaining choices include an excerpt from Simon Jeffes' Still Life at the Penguin Cafe, part of Prokofiev's Lieutenant Kije, which he loves for its Russian quirkiness, and finally Chopin's famous 'Raindrop' Prelude, played by Claudio Arrau.

Aldeburgh World Orchestra

Stephen Johnson and musicians from the Aldeburgh World Orchestra, specially created for the London 2012 Festival from young musicians from all over the world, give an illustrated introduction to the music in tonight's Prom.

The Aldeburgh World Orchestra gathers together some of the finest emerging talent from over 30 countries, encapsulating the Olympic ideals of excellence, youth and diversity. It is part of Aldeburgh Music's Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme. Established 40 years ago, the Programme has made Aldeburgh one of the world's most important centres for supporting emerging musical talent. The Aldeburgh World Orchestra illustrates the far-reaching extent of Aldeburgh Music's artist development work, which now offers year-round training and performance opportunities to emerging professional musicians from across the globe.
Planning for the AWO began three years ago, building on Aldeburgh Music's existing artist networks and reaching out beyond its traditional international links to embrace other conservatoires, festivals and youth orchestras around the world. These include the South African National Youth Orchestra, the Yong Siew Toh Conservatoire in Singapore, the Youth Orchestra of the Americas, the Buchman-Mehta School of Music in Israel, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra Fellowship scheme and many more. In addition to identifying exceptional talent through tried and tested routes, Aldeburgh Music also initiated the use of a new online audition platform, so that as many young artists as possible - regardless of location or background - could apply.

Prom 21

Britten, Mahler

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Mark Elder directs the Aldeburgh World Orchestra, a brand new ensemble of young musicians brought together from every continent, in music by Britten, Mahler and Stravinsky, plus a newly commisioned work by Charlotte Bray.

Chosen by audition, and with a strict limit of twenty musicians from each continent, the orchestra will convene for three weeks in the Suffolk fishing town forever associated with Benjamin Britten.

The programme begins with Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem, both a private memorial to his parents and a reaction to the developing menace of war. That's paired with two classic orchestral scores from the early twentieth century, which, though written just a few years apart inhabit completely different realms. The luxuriant Adagio from Mahler's Tenth symphony contrasts with the scandalous barbarities of Stravinsky's Rite but both have become musical icons.

Plus features, live guests and discussions.


SUN 21:10 BBC Proms (b01l8qqj)
Prom 21

Bray, Stravinsky

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Mark Elder directs the Aldeburgh World Orchestra, a brand new ensemble of young musicians brought together from every continent, in music by Britten, Mahler and Stravinsky, plus a newly commisioned work by Charlotte Bray.

Chosen by audition, and with a strict limit of twenty musicians from each continent, the orchestra will convene for three weeks in the Suffolk fishing town forever associated with Benjamin Britten.

The programme begins with Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem, both a private memorial to his parents and a reaction to the developing menace of war. That's paired with two classic orchestral scores from the early twentieth century, which, though written just a few years apart inhabit completely different realms. The luxuriant Adagio from Mahler's Tenth symphony contrasts with the scandalous barbarities of Stravinsky's Rite but both have become musical icons. And before the Stravinsky comes a new work by one of the UK's most exciting new composing talents and one who already has an impressive list of international commissions to her name.

Rob Cowan's guest on Essential Classics this week is the best-selling novelist Joanna Trollope. Following in the footsteps of her relation Anthony Trollope, the prolific Victorian novelist famous for the Barchester Chronicles, the Palliser sequence and 'The Way We Live Now', Joanna has published a series of best-selling novels chronicling aspects of contemporary British life, including 'The Choir', 'A Village Affair', 'The Rector's Wife' and 'Other People's Children', all of which have been made into TV series. Her latest novels are 'The Other Family' (2010) and 'Daughters-in-Law' (2011). The popularity of her novels among middle-class readers has led to them being dubbed 'Aga-sagas'. She has also published several historical novels under the nom-de-plume Caroline Harvey, and a study of women in the British Empire, 'Britannia's Daughters'. She was born in the Cotswolds, and divides her time between her homes in Gloucestershire and London. In 2012 she chaired the Orange Prize for Fiction.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01l8r02)
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

Closer to Heaven Than Earth

We have a frustratingly cloudy picture of JS Bach in his final years (1735-1750), but this week Donald Macleod looks at the composer's preoccupations during this period, when it seems that he was contemplating past, present and future. One biographer suggests that towards the end of his life, as he sat at his composing desk at St Thomas's School in Leipzig, he would have been surrounded by the 'Old Bach Archive' - the music of his ancestors - on bookshelves. He had recently drawn up a family tree, and was proudly watching his sons begin to make their mark in the musical world. From the late 1730s onwards Bach began to retreat from his church duties in Leipzig, possibly in protest against his employers, and started to devote himself to his own large and ambitious projects. One of these was the Mass in B Minor, a monumental work which seems to have been written without a commission or any intended performance, and which will be heard in its entirety through the course of this week's programmes.

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill

The innovative period instrument ensemble L'Arpeggiata celebrate the Tarantella - a Mediterranean dance form which was born out of the myth that a venomous tarantula spider bite could only be cured by music and dancing.

Known in the Middle Ages as 'tarantismo', the dance moves immitated the symptoms of a tarantula bite, such as excitability and restlessness. L'Arpeggiata perform a sequence of Baroque, traditional and improvised music on the theme, including works by Falconieri, Kapsberger, Kircher and Soler.

Prom 13 - Beethoven, Boulez

With Penny Gore

The West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, under the baton of Daniel Barenboim continues its Beethoven cycle with two dramatic symphonies: the tightly-coiled Eighth and the Seventh, famously dubbed 'the apotheosis of dance'. It was the last piece conducted by Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood. This ebulliant symphonic music is contrasted with Pierre Boulez's beautifully serene Anthèmes 2, scored for violin and live electronics.

Presented by Tom Service.

Gillian Keith is the soloist giving stratospheric voice to this setting of poems by Georg Trakl and Sylvia Plath.
Mahler described his Seventh Symphony as 'light-hearted' and it is said to be the work that convinced Schoenberg of Mahler's greatness.

MON 22:00 The Lebrecht Interview (b01l8rfr)
Ivan Fischer

Norman Lebrecht meets Hungarian conductor Iván Fischer, who looks back on a career characterised by ground breaking musical achievements and occasional political controversy.

Fischer recalls his elite musical education under communism, singing as a boy in the opera house where Gustav Mahler was once director. Being taught by both Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Hans Swarowsky during his studies in Vienna, where he initially set out to become a cellist, gave Fischer a unique musical perspective. He remembers what made both teachers great and how they impacted in his later decision to found The Budapest Festival Orchestra, alongside gifted pianist and countryman Zoltán Kocsis. Fischer describes the jealousy and bad feeling which initially greeted the new orchestra, and why his relationship with Kocsis deteriorated. He talks frankly about his discomfort with Kocsis's perceived closeness to Hungary's rightist political regime, and why he will continue to speak out against it.

Iván Fischer has always been musically motivated by change: the desire to alter the status quo and unlock the potential of the musicians he conducts - he speaks passionately about what he sees as the crisis being faced by the modern symphony orchestra, and how they need to be reinvented or face extinction.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b011vh2c)
It Talks

Cows and Shells

"Money. You don't know where it's been,
But you put it where your mouth is.
And it talks." (Money, by Dana Gioia)

The history of money stretches back some 11,000 years. There have been certain key moments in its development and each essay tells their story and the resonance that these revolutionary blips have had ever since.

1. Cows - round about 9,000BC cattle were first domesticated. Soon after they became units of exchange and thus the idea of money was born: cows became cash on legs. And they still are - in certain parts of Africa commodities (especially brides) are priced in cows. Professor Keith Hart explores the early examples of money as part of an economy of living persons and things.

Series Producer: Paul Kobrak.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01l8rg8)
The Thing and Neneh Cherry

Jez Nelson presents an exciting new collaboration between Scandinavian free-jazz trio The Thing and vocalist Neneh Cherry. Cherry's career has spanned a wide range of styles including punk, rap and trip-hop. Her stepfather is the avant-garde cornettist Don Cherry, and The Thing, named after one of his pieces, first formed to reinterpret his music. The group comprises Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and a Norwegian rhythm section of Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten and Paal Nilssen-Love. All three have long experience playing on the European and American improvised scenes with the likes of Ken Vandermark and Peter Brotzmann, and share a love of the high energy of rock and thrash metal that finds a place in their music.

Revisiting the Past

In his last years, JS Bach undertook an intensified review of his works, sometimes re-imagining them for different forces. In the process he would transform them. With the Mass in B Minor, Bach revisited some of his older works, but expanded upon them hugely, creating a compendium of different styles of music. Donald Macleod looks at JS Bach's music during a period of compositional introspection.

Vaughan Williams, Ireland

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

A vibrantly colourful all-English Prom with the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales and conductor Laureate Tadaaki Otaka - a notable advocate of British music.

The programme opens with Vaughan Williams's Tallis Fantasia, which uses the hidden spaces of the Royal Albert Hall acoustic to full effect. The first of two oratorios marks the 50th anniversary of the death of John Ireland, organist, choirmaster and Professor of Composition at the Royal College of Music. These Things Shall Be was commissioned by the BBC for the coronation of King George VI in 1937, setting a utopian text. The bass-baritone soloist is former Radio 3 new Generation Artist Jonathan Lemalu, who also takes the commanding role in Walton's dramatic retelling of the Biblical story, Belshazzar's Feast. With full orchestra and chorus augmented by two brass bands, it promises to raise the roof. Delius is another Proms anniversary for 2012, celebrated here with the Walk to the Paradise Garden from his opera A Village Romeo and Juliet.

Tadaaki Otaka enjoys a long and prosperous relationship with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, first as Principal Conductor (1987-95) and since as Laureate. In 2000 he was awarded the Elgar Medal for his services to British music.

A Herball for the 21st Century

A genuinely mysterious story of a 17th century memorial bust, which "disappeared" during the London Blitz only to be rediscovered seventy years later, leads the popular gardening writer and broadcaster Anna Pavord to celebrate her botanical hero, the sadly neglected William Turner.

According to the popular gardening writer and broadcaster Anna Pavord, the 16th century botanical writer William Turner has been neglected for far too long. It is her belief that his "New Herball" - the first plant book ever to be written in English - deserves much wider recognition today. She tells his story in the garden of the church where he is buried in the City of London - St Olave's, Hart Street - linking it in with the more recent and genuinely mysterious tale of the memorial bust of his son, Peter, which disappeared from the same church during the Blitz, only to re-emerge 70 years later.

Delius, Walton

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

A vibrantly colourful all-English Prom with the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales and conductor Laureate Tadaaki Otaka - a notable advocate of British music.

The programme opens with Vaughan Williams's Tallis Fantasia, which uses the hidden spaces of the Royal Albert Hall acoustic to full effect. The first of two oratorios marks the 50th anniversary of the death of John Ireland, organist, choirmaster and Professor of Composition at the Royal College of Music. These Things Shall Be was commissioned by the BBC for the coronation of King George VI in 1937, setting a utopian text. The bass-baritone soloist is former Radio 3 new Generation Artist Jonathan Lemalu, who also takes the commanding role in Walton's dramatic retelling of the Biblical story, Belshazzar's Feast. With full orchestra and chorus augmented by two brass bands, it promises to raise the roof. Delius is another Proms anniversary for 2012, celebrated here with the Walk to the Paradise Garden from his opera A Village Romeo and Juliet.

Tadaaki Otaka enjoys a long and prosperous relationship with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, first as Principal Conductor (1987-95) and since as Laureate. In 2000 he was awarded the Elgar Medal for his services to British music.

Out in the World - A Global Gay History

Episode 1

Richard Coles embarks on an excavation of same-sex desire through the ages, starting with the modern construction of gay identity and its links with the ancient world.

Across four programmes and a range of investigations which reach from the UK to India, Egypt, Greece and Native America, Richard discovers a far more complex and nuanced story than one of darkness into light.

In programme one, he confronts the challenges of uncovering such a history given that the idea of 'being gay' is a very modern phenomenon. Richard's quest takes him to Saqqara in Egypt and the contested tomb of two men, Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum. Some claim the two men were lovers - others say they were twin brothers. He explores the ideas of the 'sexologists' so crucial to the formation of modern gay identity. And he tells the story of Anne Lister, a 19th century Yorkshirewoman who had same sex relationships - but can we actually label her a lesbian?

In programme two, Richard explores the homosexuality of the ancients. He traces the transition from classical celebration to religious repression under the strictures of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

Part three shifts the focus to the complex relationship between sexuality and gender as Richard surveys the so-called 'third sex' in places such as India, Indonesia, and the ladyboys of Thailand which confounded the understanding of 19th century imperialists.

Richard concludes the series by looking at the globalisation of gay identity. Some theorists argue that western states are now attempting to promote and impose ideas of gay liberation which are alien to the developing world. Richard asks whether this charge of latter-day imperialism is justified.

Prom 24: World Routes Academy

Live from the Royal Albert Hall

Presented by Lucy Duran

A Late Night Prom devoted to the vallenato music of Colombia, and featuring the protégé and the mentor of the 2012 World Routes Academy. London-born 20-year-old accordionist and singer José Hernando Arias Noguera performs with one of Colombia's top artists, accordion virtuoso Egidio Cuadrado, with new songs as well as vallenato standards including 'La Gota Fria', 'El Cantor de Fonseca', 'La Vieja Sara' and 'Matilde Lina'. They are joined by singer Carlos Maria Zabaleta, guitarists Edgardo Ramos and Jesus Enrique Saurith, percussionists Eder Polo, Alfredo Rosado and Rony Theran, with Mayte Montero playing gaita flute and Luis Ángel Pastor on double bass. Introduced by Lucy Duran.

This is the third year of the World Routes Academy scheme, which brings together young UK-based performers of traditional roots music with top artists from the tradition to which they belong. José Hernando Arias Noguera was born and raised in West London - his parents emigrated to the UK from Colombia, but are not musicians themselves - José is largely self-taught, learning from recordings of great vallenato artists. In the World Routes Academy scheme he was able to make two trips to Colombia, involving intense mentoring sessions with Egidio Cuadrado, and also taking part in the celebrated Valledupar vallenato festival. He is aware that the vallenato tradition requires all-round musicianship: "The aim is to be a complete troubadour - to sing, to compose and to play the accordion at the same time. My dream is to make this music as well-known as salsa and to write lyrics in English for it.".

The Scheibe Criticism

Though a legend in his own time, Bach wasn't appreciated by everyone in Leipzig. A certain J.A. Scheibe found cause for complaint against his music, calling it turgid, confused, and over-complicated. Donald Macleod looks at Bach's response to such criticism in his later years, and the concessions he may have made to the younger generation in his music. From the Mass in B Minor we'll hear the symmetrical Credo section, which stands at the centre of this huge work.

Herschel Grynszpan, the Forgotten Assassin

Michael Tippett's oratorio A Child of Our Time was partly inspired by the story of Herschel Grynszpan, a young Polish-German Jew whose assassination of Nazi foreign service officer Ernst vom Rath in Paris on 7 November 1938 provided the excuse for the vicious pogrom that became known as Kristallnacht.

Despite his key role, Grynszpan remains an obscure figure. He was taken into French custody and remained alive throughout much of the war, a prisoner in various Nazi institutions. But his ultimate fate is unknown.

This feature tells the intriguing story of 17 year old Herschel Grynszpan and speculates on his fate, and on why his name has been largely forgotten by history.

Contributors: David Cesarani, Ron Roizen, Gerald Schwab and John Najam.

Out in the World - A Global Gay History

Episode 2

In the second programme in Radio 3's landmark series telling the global story of gay identity, Richard Coles travels to Greece to re-discover the ancient culture in which homoerotic love was part of a social code.

Alongside exploring familiar and, according to modern scholarship, hopelessly over-simplified images of pederastic relationships between older and younger men Richard travels to the plain of Chaeronea where the famous Sacred Band of Thebes fought and died. The Band, a military unit made up of same-sex lovers, were wiped out in combat against the Macedonian forces of Philip and his son Alexander in 338BCE. The Lion monument that overlooks the site of the slaughter speaks of an attitude towards the Sacred Band at odds with our modern feminised view of homosexuality.

Richard then explores the impact of the Abrahamic monotheistic religions beginning with the Mosaic laws of Judaism. The fierce prohibition that 'thou shalt not sleep with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination' has echoed down the centuries. Equally the Qur'an stories of Lot and his rejection by the people of Sodom appears unequivocal. But how did the early Islamic, Judaic and Christian societies react to these texts and what are we to make of the Hebrew and Arabic homoerotic poetry of the early medieval period?

Christianity seems to have been the most enthusiastic critic of same-sex relations but even here the judgements and images are rarely as clear cut as the Biblical call for the death sentence for transgressors.

The Musical Offering

Bach's visit, three years before his death, to Frederick the Great in Potsdam in 1747, was timed tactfully. Prussian troops had withdrawn from Leipzig six months earlier, and Leipzig city council and the Dresden court would have noted that Bach had made the journey as a true ambassador of peace. Frederick the flute-playing monarch offered the composer a theme on which to base a new work, and Bach improvised a piece for the king there and then. After returning home he set to work on several movements based on this royal theme. Donald Macleod looks at the music arising from Bach's visit to Frederick the Great.

Ryan Wigglesworth conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in an Entente Cordiale of British and French music. Joanna MacGregor, widely acclaimed as one of the world's most innovative musicians, is the soloist in Hugh Wood's jazz-influenced Piano Concerto. Hugh Wood celebrates his 80th birthday this year.
Elgar's warm and sunny overture In the South opens the programme, a musical postcard from a happy holiday in Mediterranean Italy.
The watery influence seeps into the French second half, which concludes with Debussy's revolutionary seascape La Mer, a sparkling of light at play on the ocean, forever associated with Hokusai's famous woodprint of the Great Wave. Around the same time, Ravel turned his attention to depicting a boat setting sail, fighting with wind and ocean's current. Originally one of his piano pieces, he later scored "Une barque sur l'ocean" with great precision for full orchestral colour. Henry Wood, founder of the Proms, was an early champion of Debussy in England, so it's fitting that Debussy's most popular piano pieces, La cathedrale engloutie, is heard in a rarely heard orchestration by Wood himself.

Bach: B Minor Mass - Part 1

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Donald Macleod

Nobody knows why it was written - it's one of the great mysteries of Bach's life. Why did he spend so much of his last two years reworking religious music he'd already written into an enormous setting of the Catholic Mass, in Latin? It's tempting to see the B minor Mass as a drawing-together-of-threads, the great composer's last religious will and testament, a monumental summation of his decades of work for the church... albeit usually for the Protestant Church, in German. Since the nineteenth century the Mass has become one of Bach's best-loved works - though it's almost always performed, as here, in concert halls rather than churches. But the English Concert, conductor Harry Bicket and their starry lineup of soloists are sure to bring new insights: their performance comes fresh from Leipzig, where they closed the 2012 Bachfest with the B minor Mass - in Bach's own church, the Thomaskirche.

The Greatest Poem Never Read

Danny Karlin, Professor of Poetry at the University of Bristol and editor of the complete works of Robert Browning, stands up for one of his poet's least loved and least read poems: 'Sordello'. A long story of a medieval troubadour, the poem was a complete and utter disaster on publication, set the career of its author back by twenty years, and has remained a black hole in Victorian poetry. Can anything of Browning's intentions be recovered, can the poem itself come to life at all? If we could find a way to read 'Sordello' should we? No one knows the poem better than Danny Karlin; can he convince us that we should try it?

Producer: Tim Dee.

Bach: B Minor Mass - Part 2

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Donald Macleod

Nobody knows why it was written - it's one of the great mysteries of Bach's life. Why did he spend so much of his last two years reworking religious music he'd already written into an enormous setting of the Catholic Mass, in Latin? It's tempting to see the B minor Mass as a drawing-together-of-threads, the great composer's last religious will and testament, a monumental summation of his decades of work for the church... albeit usually for the Protestant Church, in German. Since the nineteenth century the Mass has become one of Bach's best-loved works - though it's almost always performed, as here, in concert halls rather than churches. But the English Concert, conductor Harry Bicket and their starry lineup of soloists are sure to bring new insights: their performance comes fresh from Leipzig, where they closed the 2012 Bachfest with the B minor Mass - in Bach's own church, the Thomaskirche.

J S Bach: Mass in B minor (conclusion)

This Prom will be repeated on Friday 10th August at 2pm.

Out in the World - A Global Gay History

Episode 3

Turning his gaze to India, Polynesia and Native America, Richard Coles continues his excavation of same-sex desire across the centuries, focusing on the age of Empire and the relationship between gender and sexuality.

When the European nations went out into the world during the era of colonial expansion, they found a bewildering and - to them - shocking array of sexual behaviours. In many societies, gender rather than sexuality took precedence - such as India's third-gender Hijras or the Native Americans' multiple genders.

As Richard finds out, the colonial authorities set about imposing western moral mores around the world - systematically destroying indigenous traditions which had existed for centuries. He concludes by taking the pulse of those societies in the post imperial era.

Producer: Laurence Grissell

First broadcast in September 2011.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b011vh32)
It Talks

Standards

"Money. You don't know where it's been,
But you put it where your mouth is.
And it talks." (Money, by Dana Gioia)

The history of money stretches back some 11,000 years. There have been certain key moments in its development and each essay tells their story and the resonance that these revolutionary blips have had ever since.

2. Standards - Once the idea that things without use had value there had to be some sort of agreement about them. And so in 2,250 BC Cappadocia became the first state to guarantee the weight and purity of its silver ingots and the idea of inter-national and cross boundary standards came into being. Professor Paul Cartledge tracks their evolution and considers their leagcy.

Producer: Paul Kobrak.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)

When We are in Deepest Distress

The Art of Fugue seems to have occupied Bach's mind throughout the last decade of his life, and inspires reverence partly because the final fugue in the collection was left incomplete, trailing off into thin air, due to the composer's last illness. When the work was published, the editors included the so-called deathbed chorale, which Bach supposedly dictated to an attending visitor. Donald Macleod explores the music associated with the very end of the great composer's life, concluding with the final section of the monumental work which dominated Bach's last decade, the Mass in B Minor.

Wagner

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Renowned for conducting Wagner and Bruckner, Chief Conductor Donald Runnicles plays the first of this season's BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra Proms in repertoire close to his heart.

Wagner's intimate and private Idyll was written in 1870 to celebrate his second wife's birthday just after the birth of their son Siegfried. It is played here with the original 13 instruments but building to a larger string section. In contrast Bruckner wrote his 8th symphony to epic proportions. He is arguably the greatest Symphonist since Beethoven, and Bruckner's 8th is perhaps the most challenging and glorious of all his symphonies. The Nowak 1955 (1890) edition is played here.

Out in the World - A Global Gay History

Canary in the Mine

Richard Coles completes his excavation of same-sex desire across the ages, focusing on the recent history which has seen western societies change dramatically in their attitudes to same-sex relationships.This self-proclaimed enlightenment is however now being used as a measure of human rights across the globe.

That creates enormous tension, given that some countries, particularly those in Sub-saharan Africa and with a predominantly Muslim culture, see this attitude as neo-colonial.

Richard talks to gay rights activists in Egypt, Greece, China, India and the United States about their interpretation of these changing attitudes. He also hears from those debating whether or not gay identity is really an effective way of moving forward in the face of the apparent impasse between human rights and religious and cultural beliefs.

Producer: Tom Alban
