SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b016kd3b)
Music at the Court of Catherine the Great

Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia from 1762 until her death in 1796, didn't portray herself as naturally musical. In her letters and memoirs she makes it clear that, when it came to music, she could make neither head nor tail of it - a rather unpromising patron of music, to say the least.

But, argues Virginia Rounding, who has written a biography of the Empress, though it may be true that she was not much of a musician herself, music was central not only to Catherine's determination to establish Russia as a leading cultural - and political - force, but also in her effort to reshape the education and role of women in her court and in aristocratic society. And, it is arguably under Catherine that a distinctively Russian classical music tradition began to emerge.

With music by Giuseppe Sarti, Tommaso Traetta Baldassare Galuppi, Vasily Pashkevich, Dmitry Bortniansky and by a number of princesses at her court, including Natalia Kourakine, Maria Zubova and Maria Naryshkin.

Produced by Hannah Rosenfelder
This is a Just Radio Ltd production for Radio 3

First broadcast in October 2011.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01lhhzh)

SAT 14:00 BBC Proms (b01lhhzk)
Prom 28

Chabrier, Mozart, Elaine Agnew

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Launching a weekend featuring performances by young performers, the Ulster Youth Orchestra joins the Ulster Orchestra in a concert brimming with orchestral colour. The Ulster Orchestra's Principal Conductor, JoAnn Falletta, makes her Proms, debut while virtuoso flautist, Sir James Galway, makes a welcome return to the Proms.

The members of the Ulster Youth Orchestra showcase their talent in a piece sparkling with Spanish dance rhythms and folk-like tunes - Chabrier's España is a musical postcard marking the composer's visit to Spain in 1882. Sir James Galway joins the Ulster Orchestra to perform Mozarts's Flute Concerto No. 2 in D major, K314, a work which began life as an oboe concerto and was adapted for flute by the composer in Mannheim in 1798. Dark Hedges for double orchestra and solo flute is a BBC commission for the BBC Proms by Elaine Agnew. The work is inspired by an avenue of over-arching beech trees planted near Armoy in 1750, close to the composer's home in Co. Antrim.

The concert ends with music from Stravinsky's ballet, The Firebird. It tells the story of a prince who, with the help of a mysterious firebird, breaks a spell cast by the evil magician, King Kashei. The 1911 suite from the ballet is lavishly orchestrated and takes full advantage of the large orchestral forces provided by the combined forces of the youth and professional orchestras playing side by side on the stage of the Royal Albert Hall.

Chabrier: España
Mozart: Flute Concerto No. 2 in D major, K314

SAT 14:50 Twenty Minutes (b01lhj04)
The Global Flute Fraternity

James Galway, this afternoon's soloist, plays a flute made of gold - and the penny whistle. These are two extremes of this instrument. People have, everywhere and always, fulfilled their need to make music by blowing into and across a reed or a hollow bone.

Keith Waithe, the Guyanese jazz flautist and composer, has played in the Americas, Africa, India and the Far East and, on his travels, has gathered members of the flute family from all over the world. He now has 207 flutes, of bamboo, bone and even pottery.

For the interval of this matinee he takes Julian May around the collection, around the world, and around his kitchen table, telling the stories of the flutes - their provenance, their use, how he came by them - and he plays them in 'The Global Flute Fraternity'.

Keith Waithe has been a resident with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, his band The Macusi Players, performs widely and he composes for the theatre and radio. He has also made a theatre show using his collection of flutes, performed at BAC.

Producer: Julian May.

Proms Chamber Music

PCM 03: L'Arpeggiata

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.

Cazzati: Ciaccona
Strozzi: Eraclito amoroso
Trad: Stu' criatu
Improvisation: Tarantella Napoletana
Kapsberger: Toccata Prima
Trad: La Carpinese

There's a wide range of music in Alyn Shipton's selection of listeners' requests today, from the pioneering sounds of the New Orleans Rhythm Kings via the swing of Buck Clayton to the latest recording by Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts. Plus the jazz fusion sounds of Steely Dan.


SAT 18:15 Words and Music (b00skbfj)
Man Made

Caroline Catz and Anthony Flanagan read a selection of poetry and prose, serious and light-hearted, celebrating the relationship between humankind, nature and machines.

The programme begins with a look at man's use of machinery through history, including words from Karl Marx and Charles Dickens, and music from Bach and the Beach Boys.

Meanwhile, poets Rudyard Kipling and Carl Sandburg look into the minds of machines and imagine how they must feel as they carry out their work. This leads down the shady avenue of artificial intelligence: the endeavour to create the perfect machine in man's image, an idea investigated by Science Fiction writer Philip K Dick. Interspersed are Olympia the doll's aria from Offenbach's Tales of Hoffmann, and music featuring telephones, typewriters and helicopters.

Philip Larkin's poem The Mower hints at the destructive power of machines, as he finds a mauled hedgehog in the blades of his lawnmower, while Kenneth Grahame's animal characters from The Wind in the Willows have a close encounter with an automobile. D.H. Lawrence ponders where it will all lead, and nature and the man-made dance together in the music of Messiaen.

Prom 29

Varese, Muhly

Live from the Royal Albert Hall

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

One of the highlights of this year's celebration of youth at the BBC Proms is this evening's appearance by the talented National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain as they scale the heights in Messiaen's Turangalîla Symphony, an ecstatic song of love.

The huge orchestral forces and soaring solos for the ondes martenot in Messiaen's Tristan-inspired symphony will surely fill the Royal Albert Hall with glorious sounds. Messiaen's twentieth century classic is framed by a BBC commission from one of America's rising talents and Anna Meredith's acclaimed tour de force of clapping, stamping, singing and body percussion, first performed earlier this year by NYO members and commissioned for the PRS for Music Foundation's New Music 20x12 programme as part of the Cultural Olympiad.

SAT 20:00 Twenty Minutes (b01bw8hn)
Some Bloom in Darknesss

Simon Van Booy's story of unreal love is set in a silent Paris, covered with snow, where the search for love is unreal, problematic even..

"His life went back to normal until one day, after almost ten years, he witnessed a violent incident at the railway station where he worked as a clerk. The desires suddenly returned, and soon enough, Saboné's eyes burned for the girl who stood in a shop-window on his walk to work. She was very pretty. And Saboné assumed he had passed her many times before. but for some reason, he had never noticed her. In addition to this new passion, Saboné caught himself doing odd things, like talking to birds and removing his hat whenever he passed statues in the gardens.

For days, he held the image of the shop-girl in his mind.."

There's also Strauss sung by Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, Tchaikowsky played by the Borodin Quartet, and Bartok's music for strings, percussion and celeste in Rob's mini-series of works for double string orchestra. Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts this week's Bach cantata, no. 168: Tue Rechnung! Donnerwort (Settle account! Word of thunder) with a text appropriate to the European financial crisis!


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01lng7w)
Vangelis

Michael Berkeley meets Vangelis, the Greek composer of electronic, progressive. jazz, pop rock and orchestral music, whos began his career in the 1960s working with bands such as Aphrodite's Child. In the early 1980s he formed a musical partnership with Jon Anderson, the lead singer of the progressive rock band Yes, and in 1981 he shot to worldwide fame with his modern, synthesizer-heavy score for Hugh Hudson's Oscar-winning film Chariots of Fire, set at the 1924 Paris Olympics. Vangelis won the Academy Award for Best Original Music Score, and the opening theme of the film was released as a single in 1982. In that year Vangelis composed the score for Ridley Scott's science fiction film Blade Runner, and in 1993 his score for Scott's '1492:Conquest of Paradise' was nominated for an Oscar. He has recently provided a reworked score for the current stage production of Chariots of Fire.

His music relies heavily on synthesizers, while also drawing on Greek folk melodies. In all, he has composed more than 52 albums in a career spanning over 50 years. He is also a painter.

Vangelis' choices for Private Passions include pieces by Debussy (the Sonata for flute, viola and harp), Stravinsky (The Rite of Spring), solo cello music by Bach, Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Wagner (Tristan and Isolde), Mozart (the Concerto for Flute and Harp) and Gil Evans.

SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b01ljhhp)
Prom 21 - Britten, Mahler, Stravinsky

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 has convened 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.
Presented by Louise Fryer

Rob Cowan's guest on Essential Classics this week, during British Food Fortnight, is the actress, writer and cake-maker Jane Asher. Since beginning her acting career at the age of 5, she has appeared in several feature films including the original film of 'Alfie', and has starred in many TV series including 'Brideshead Revisited', 'The Mistress', 'The Choir', 'Crossroads', 'Poirot' , 'Miss Marple' and 'The Old Guys'. She played Lady Byrne in the BBC TV drama Holby City. She has twice been nominated for BAFTA awards and has received a Sony Award for her radio work. She has worked extensively in the theatre, recently at the Rose Theatre, Kingston in Bedroom Farce, directed by Sir Peter Hall, The Importance of Being Earnest (as Lady Bracknell), and in A Farewell to the Theatre, directed by Stephen Unwin. She has recently finished filming Dancing on the Edge, a new six-part series for the BBC written and directed by Steven Poliakoff, and a feature film called I Give it a Year.

Jane has written three best-selling novels and published over a dozen lifestyle and cake decorating books. Her love of cake-making began when she started baking as a child, helping her mother. As a young mother herself she started making novelty cakes for her children, and opened her own cake-making shop, Jane Asher Party Cakes, in 1990. It is now one of the UK's foremost bespoke cake makers.

A great music-lover, in summer 2008 she took part in the BBC's first Maestro conducting competition.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01ljhs9)
Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

Episode 1

It's a classic tale of the nineteenth century artist ... always at odds with the establishment in his native France, lurching from one disastrous romantic entanglement to the next, never quite knowing whether he would stay afloat financially. Nonetheless, Hector Berlioz swept music into the Romantic age almost single-handedly, redefining the nature of the symphony and inventing the modern orchestra. Donald Macleod explores the life and music of the great innovator, beginning with Berlioz's struggles against his parents' disapproval of his choice of career ("folly") and of his wife, Harriet, who disappointed them on four counts: she was an actress, a foreigner, a Protestant - and penniless to boot.


MON 13:00 BBC Proms (b01ljhsc)
Proms Chamber Music

PCM 04: Pike, Altstaedt, Levit

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill

Three leading soloists join forces to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Debussy.

French composer Claude Debussy was one of the most forward-looking of early 20th century composers so his return to Classical form in these late Sonatas is one last party-trick from a composer who constantly rebelled and surprised. Ravel's Piano Trio was written in 1914 just as the First World War broke out. Finishing it at break-neck speed so he could enlist, he said he composed it 'with the sureness and lucidity of a madman'. The result is an elegant and virtuosic masterpiece that seems tinged with nostalgia. The performers are three leading young soloists, all of whom are, or have been, BBC New Generation Artists.

Prom 22 - Mozart, Knussen, Mahler

With Louise Fryer
The BBC Philharmonic and their Conductor Laureate Gianandrea Noseda open with Mozart's famous Don Giovanni Overture and celebrate Oliver Knussen's 60th Birthday with his Second symphony. 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. Sometimes seen as the Cinderella of Mahler's symphonies, its rich orchestration and imaginative use of unusual instruments, like guitar and mandolin, make it a compelling listen.

Prom 32 - Bernstein Mass

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

Bernstein devised his Mass not as a religious setting, but as 'a theatre piece for singers, players and dancers. It has courted controversy ever since it was first performed at the opening of the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington in 1971. There will be over 250 young people from across Wales and beyond joining members of the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales to perform it with charismatic conductor Kristjan Jarvi.

The young performers come from the National Youth Orchestra and National Youth Choir of Wales, the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, 120 young choristers from primary schools across South Wales, and the award -winning choir Aelwyd y Waun Ddyfal - as well as a rock band and over 100 kazoos.

Bernstein fuses a kaleidoscopic mix of musical, political and theological colours in a work which takes us through the movements of the mass, as the presiding celebrant gradually loses control of first his congregation and then his own mind. Elements of jazz, rock, Latin and blues rub shoulders with counterpoint, avant garde and the best of Bernstein's Broadway melodies. The 1970s world was deeply disturbed by the realities of the Cold War and Vietnam, confused sexualities and blurred moral boundaries. All the frustrations and all the anger are penned up in this explosive mix, bound by Bernstein's eclectic score and period lyrics from the composer and Stephen Schwartz, plus a rhyming couplet by Paul Simon. At the height of the cacophony, the celebrant smashes the chalice, seemingly destroying any hope that his god actually exists. But from the following silence, a soft hymn emerges, singing God a secret yet a simple song. As the final prayer dies, a warm and reassuring voice from the quadraphonic tape which interlaces the score declares 'The Mass is ended: go in peace'.

Bernstein was born into the Jewish faith, but he was fascinated by the ritual of the Catholic Mass. In this work he said, he wanted to "communicate as directly and universally as I can a reaffirmation of faith". Despite his wishes - and the success of the premiere, critics slammed the "superficiality and pretentiousness" whilst Catholic clergy considered the work blasphemous. But when one such archbishop in Cincinnati spoke out against any Catholic to even see a production in 1972, he suffered a fatal stroke which in turn ensured the run was a sell-out success. Despite it's religious criticisms, the Vatican finally hosted a production in 2000 to commemorate the World Jubilee for Migrants. Increasingly this work, in which Bernstein wears his heart deeply engrained on his sleeve, is becoming a modern classic.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01ljk90)
Ambrose Akinmusire, Marius Neset

Jez Nelson presents a second chance to hear performances by two rising stars: US trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire and Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset.

Since being invited to tour with Steve Coleman's Five Elements when aged just 19, Akinmusire has built a reputation as one to watch. His playing is distinguished by a variety of tone colours and angular melodic lines, enhancing the adventurous yet straightahead approach of his quintet, featuring Walter Smith III (tenor sax), Gerald Clayton (piano), Harish Raghavan (bass) and Justin Brown (drums). This performance, recorded at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam last year, features music from his debut album for Blue Note.

Marius Neset's emergence and debut album as a leader last year were met with great excitement - a response to his fearsome technique and energy, allied to a mature writing style. Neset has been mentored by Django Bates for a number of years, appearing in his stoRMChaser and Human Chain bands. This performance with his Golden Xplosion Quartet, recorded at Pizza Express last year, features pianist Nick Ramm, and Phronesis's Jasper Hoiby (bass) and Anton Eger (drums).

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

Episode 2

At his fourth attempt, Berlioz finally won the prestigious Prix de Rome. The good news was the substantial financial package, plus free entry to every opera house in Europe. The bad news was a compulsory two year stay in Rome, studying at the Villa Medici. Berlioz, whose love life was rather fragile at the time, didn't want to go at all, and when he got there did very little composition and lots of complaining. Nevertheless, his time in Italy made its presence felt in his music throughout his life. Donald Macleod investigates.

With Catriona Young
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.

Prom 33

Wagner, MacMillan

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

A dramatic world premiere by James Macmillan is set alongside tragically romantic music by Wagner and one of Bruckner's most expansive symphonies.

A world premiere at the Proms is always exciting and this is no exception. Hot on the heels of his "Gloria", composed for the 50th anniversary of the re-consecration of Coventry Cathedral, is James MacMillan's dramatic and full-blooded "Credo", performed by the BBC Philharmonic, their chief conductor Juanjo Mena and the combined Manchester Chamber Choir, Northern Sinfonia Chorus and Rushley Singers. Bruckner's Sixth Symphony was one of his favourites - bold and expansive and entirely befitting of the space of the Royal Albert Hall. The concert opens with the Prelude to Wagner's landmark tale of tragic love - Tristan und Isolde - performed here with Wagner's rarely heard concert ending.

Dark Arcadias

Episode 1

Adam Nicolson presents the first of 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.

Prom 28 - Chabrier, Mozart, Elaine Agnew

With Louise Fryer
As part of this year''s celebration of youth at the BBC Proms, young performers from the Ulster Youth Orchestra join the Ulster Orchestra in a concert brimming with orchestral colour. The Ulster Orchestra's Principal Conductor, JoAnn Falletta, makes her Proms, debut while virtuoso flautist, Sir James Galway, makes a welcome return to the Proms.

The members of the Ulster Youth Orchestra showcase their talent in a piece sparkling with Spanish dance rhythms and folk-like tunes - Chabrier's España is a musical postcard marking the composer's visit to Spain in 1882. Sir James Galway joins the Ulster Orchestra to perform Mozarts's Flute Concerto No. 2 in D major, K314, a work which began life as an oboe concerto and was adapted for flute by the composer in Mannheim in 1798. Dark Hedges for double orchestra and solo flute is a BBC commission for the BBC Proms by Elaine Agnew. The work is inspired by an avenue of over-arching beech trees planted near Armoy in 1750, close to the composer's home in Co. Antrim.
The concert ends with music from Stravinsky's ballet, The Firebird. It tells the story of a prince who, with the help of a mysterious firebird, breaks a spell cast by the evil magician, King Kashei.

Telling Me of Elsewhere - Philip Larkin and Radio

On what, had he survived, would be Philip Larkin's 90th birthday, the historian Sean Street explores this much-loved poet's relationship with the radio. In his poem 'Broadcast', which ends this programme, Larkin tries pick out the particular clapping of a lover in the applause of the entire audience in a 'vast' hall.

The poet was listening to a concert such as this evening's broadcast and this inspired one of the finest and most poignant poems of the second half of the 20th century. In 'Livings II' he writes that 'Radio rubs its legs,/ Telling me of elsewhere'. This 'elsewhere' is a major theme in his work and radio both an apt metaphor, and a conduit to it.

But his relationship with radio was complicated. In 'Mr Bleaney' there is a set 'jabbering', he seems to think, inanities. And Philip Larkin, when he read on the radio himself, memorably remarked that this was his first experience of speaking to such a large audience and, "if I have anything to do with it, my last." Though a reluctant broadcaster, Larkin was a great listener, not least to music programmes.

Using the poems, his letters, archive recordings, jazz and the thoughts and recollections of Larkin's friend and biographer Andrew Motion, Sean Street reveals the importance of of the radio and of the act of listening to Philip Larkin's life and poetry.

Prom 26 - Bach's B Minor Mass

With Louise Fryer
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. The English Concert, conductor Harry Bicket and their starry lineup of soloists bring their performance to the Royal Albert Hall fresh from Leipzig, where they closed the 2012 Bachfest with the B minor Mass - in Bach's own church, the Thomaskirche.

Elgar: The Apostles - Part 1

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Mark Elder conducts the Hallé and a distinguished cast of singers in one of the English choral tradition's major works: Elgar's dramatic and Biblical oratorio The Apostles. Elgar explores the inner feelings of Judas Iscariot with dramatic intensity, and Christ's anguished cry from the cross becomes a wordless lament.

Elgar conceived the idea for The Apostles as a schoolboy, but the project came to fruition only in 1903 - after both The Dream of Gerontius and a visit to Bayreuth to hear Wagner's The Ring and Parsifal.

FRI 21:30 Sunday Feature (b010xwgd)
Hume, the Philosophical Historian

"Mary Queen of Scots was a Strumpet and a murtherer!"

- bellowed the famous philosopher, right into the ear of a snoozing elderly Jacobite reader in the Advocates Library. You might think this more David Starkey than David Hume, and you wouldn't be far off the mark: the 18th-century author of the Treatise on Human Nature was also, like Starkey, a highly bankable writer of Tudor history who profoundly admired Elizabeth I and reached out beyond academia to a popular audience.

History made Hume's fortune. He took sides Elizabeth versus Mary. He sought a female readership for his work. He jettisoned his philosophical works for the witty, readable, sometimes gossipy but always polished style of the History of Great Britain, designed to be read out loud to delight and provoke the tea-table.

But the history had a serious purpose. It meant to explode the very bedrock of political hackery in Hume's day by destroying the myth of England's matchless ancient constitution, and you can follow this powder trail all the way to the American Revolution. Convinced England was in danger of becoming ungovernable due to bitter factional political warfare and falling back into the bloody religious wars of the 16th and 17th century, Hume went on the offensive against fanatical religion. Britain's most famous 'atheist' (he was a sceptic who found the
'A'-word too dogmatic for his liking) set out to write a subversive account of the psychology of religion to show his audience the deep dangers of relying on beliefs for which there was no evidence. His three chief weapons were satire, irony and wit. Nobody expected the Edinburgh inquisition, and, as Hume ruefully recorded, his writings made him no enemies except all the Whigs, all the Tories, and all the Christians. That's what you get for writing history!

The youthful members of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra conducted by Mark Armstrong perform a wide-ranging set, from Jazz classics through to a new work by Tim Garland.

Founded in the mid-1960s the NYJO is world-famous as a glittering showcase for the country's best young jazz musicians with many of the current generation of top British jazz players having risen through its ranks. Known for their unique swinging big band sound they have always played a mix of classics and new works. In tonight's late-night Prom they perform compositions by Ellington and Monk through to contemporary pieces including the premiere of a new work by Tim Garland called 'Agro Alegria' described by its composer as 'almost a ballad' based on a dance rhythm from the flamenco tradition, with the word 'Agro' having the double meaning of planting and growing, but also a reference to the youthful rowdiness of the NYJO members.
