MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b010722x)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 1

Donald Macleod explores Felix Mendelssohn's last seven years, starting with his appointment in 1841 to the post of Royal Prussian Kapellmeister in his home town of Berlin. For the previous six years Mendelssohn had been based in Leipzig, as director of the Gewandhaus Concerts. He had been spectacularly successful, turning the orchestra there into one of the finest in Europe - and thereby making himself an attractive prospect for neighbouring rulers to poach. The new king of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm IV, wanted to make Berlin a cultural centre to be reckoned with, and had decided that Mendelssohn was the man for the job. After six months of strenuous but largely unsuccessful attempts to hammer out the responsibilities of his post, Mendelssohn was offered a lucrative one-year contract on a pretty much take-it-or-leave-it basis; he took it, but the job remained ill-defined and he grew increasingly frustrated - not least with the lack of any progress whatsoever on the proposed new Berlin Conservatory, the creation of which had been a major carrot during the negotiations. Mendelssohn's incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone is one of the few fruits of this first Berlin post; but at least he had plenty of time to get to grips with the composition of his 'Scottish' Symphony, the seeds of which had been sown during his visit to the ruins of Queen Mary's palace of Holyrood in 1829. On hearing the symphony, one contemporary critic astutely commented, "we may prophesy that it will rouse pure feeling of pleasure everywhere".

Producer: Chris Barstow.

2012 Festival

Michael Ignatieff

On the eve of the US election, Michael Ignatieff gives a talk on Enemies in Politics at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2012.

After a high-profile career in the UK as a broadcaster, law academic and Booker shortlisted author, Michael Ignatieff returned to Canada to become a politician, leading the Canadian Opposition in the 2011 election and losing dramatically to Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Ignatieff's Free Thinking talk is titled "Them and Us: Enemies and Adversaries in Politics". Addressing this year's central festival theme "Them and Us", he blames excessive partisanship for the public's dislike of politics. Why is political competition so vicious when party differences are so small?

Michael Ignatieff reveals what he believes needs to be done to restore faith in politics.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Matthew Sweet.

BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival takes place at The Sage Gateshead 2 - 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

Producer: Natalie Steed.

Free Thinking Essay

Charlotte Blease

Charlotte Blease, one of Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk that questions the relationship between doctors and patients, recorded at Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival.

We trust the 36,000 GPs in this country to work out what is wrong with us. But how much of what they do is guesswork?

In her talk titled "The Medicine Game", philosopher of medicine Charlotte Blease of Queen's University Belfast argues that the relationship between doctors and patients is built on a phoney image of medicine, and instead diagnosis involves playing the "medicine game".

The Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival takes place at The Sage Gateshead Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

The New Generation Thinkers are winners of a talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into broadcasts.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0107459)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 2

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years. Christmas 1842 must have been a bleak one in the Mendelssohn household; on 12 December the composer's mother, Lea, had died. Wealthy, cultured, intelligent and larger than life, Lea Mendelssohn had presided over a salon frequented by some of the greatest minds of the day. Mendelssohn's father, Abraham, had died some years earlier, so as the composer now wrote to his brother Paul: "We are children no longer." Understandably, fresh composition was difficult, and he started the new year by revising an old work - Die Erste Walpurgisnacht. Then there was a series of concerts to conduct in Berlin, along with the none-too-onerous 'duties' of his new, resounding-sounding appointment as Generalmusikdirector für kirchliche und geistliche Musik - although this did result in the incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream. When he had negotiated his new contract with the Prussian king, Friedrich Wilhelm IV, it had been agreed that Mendelssohn could spend part of 1843 in his old stamping-ground, Leipzig. On his arrival there he was promptly offered the job of Director of Music to the Saxon court - he declined, but managed to persuade King Frederick Augustus III to establish a new music conservatory in the city. He also conducted a series of eight subscription concerts, was granted the Freedom of the city of Leipzig, and unveiled a monument to his musical hero, J S Bach. Back in Berlin, he was driven up the wall by the Prussian government's shilly-shallying over the conditions attached to his new post in charge of church music. He worked off some of his frustration in paint - not just a prodigious composer, he was a talented artist as well - and in the composition of his exuberant 2nd Cello Sonata.

2012 Festival

Is Social Mobility Overrated?

Anne McElvoy chairs a debate on Social Mobility at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival: Is Social Mobility Overrated?

Social Mobility has become the new Holy Grail for politicians, with all three main parties united in their desire to break down social barriers and inequality. It's an emotive topic in Britain, raising issues of class, wealth and education.

But for some people to rise up, do others have to slide down? And does greater openness to talent necessarily make a more equal society?

Tackling the Free Thinking Festival's central theme "Them and Us" is a panel including Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee, Oxford historian Lawrence Goldman, management consultant Jamie Whyte, and Director of SCHOOLS NorthEast Beccy Earnshaw.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Anne McElvoy and recorded as part of BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2012.

The festival of ideas takes place at The Sage Gateshead Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

Lecturer in International Relations at the University of East Anglia, Adriana Sinclair argues that as Asia rises and Europe fades, new patterns and forms of exploitation and domination will emerge that could turn the tables on the old world.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 3

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years with a look at the year 1844. Towards the end of the previous year the composer had finally, after months of wrangling, taken up his new appointment as Director of Sacred Music in Berlin. In the event, he found it impossible to work with the court chaplain, Friedrich Adolf Strauss, and ended up providing music for just four services - Christmas, New Year's Day, Passion Sunday and Good Friday. It doubtless came as a great relief to him to return, in the spring, to a city he had first visited in 1829 - London, or "that smoky nest", as he fondly called it. He had agreed to help out the Philharmonic Society, whose finances were in a bad way, by conducting a few concerts for them. The headache induced by a seven-hour rehearsal meant that he had to turn down an invitation to visit Charles Babbage of Difference Engine fame, but Mendelssohn did get to meet Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray, who pronounced his face: "the most beautiful ...I ever saw, like what I imagine our Saviour's to have been..." His stay was crowned by an audience with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It was also during this visit that he composed one of his best-known works - Hear My Prayer, whose second section opens with the line that has given the piece its popular name: 'O for the wings of a dove'. Another of Mendelssohn's most popular creations dates from autumn of the same year - the Violin Concerto, written for his old friend Ferdinand David. David played the première on his 1742 Guarneri del Gesu violin, which later passed to Jascha Heifetz, who plays it on the recording you'll hear in the programme.

Islam and Christianity: The Essential Difference

Tom Holland and Mona Siddiqui discuss the essential difference between Islam and Christianity at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Just how different are the two biggest world religions?

Two leading scholars explore what differentiates Islam from Christianity, and the impact that has on the world today, from their different historical origins to their different versions of God.

With the historian Tom Holland, author of a book on Arabic history In the Shadow of the Sword and presenter of the recent Channel 4 documentary Islam: The Untold Story. And the leading theologian Mona Siddiqui, Professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Samira Ahmed and recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2012.

The Free Thinking festival of ideas takes place at The Sage Gateshead Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

Free Thinking Essay

Jonathan Healey

Oxford University historian Jonathan Healey, one of Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk questioning the value of lessons from history.

Healey claims that lessons drawn from the past and applied to our own world are meaningless, despite what we are told by best-selling historians and television documentaries. It is precisely because the past is so foreign that we are able to understand what is so unique about today.

The Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival takes place at The Sage Gateshead Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

The New Generation Thinkers are winners of a talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into broadcasts.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 4

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years. In October 1844, the composer took the bull by the horns in an audience with his royal employer Friedrich Wilhelm IV, the King of Prussia, and asked to be released from his service to the crown - a grand-sounding, but in practice rather vague position, which had been a source of immense frustration and disappointment to the composer. His request was granted - more or less. Mendelssohn would no longer be required to live in Berlin, and there'd be no fixed duties to perform; just the occasional royal commission. One such commission was to supply incidental music for a performance of Racine's play Athalie (as Donald suggests, the full-blooded choruses give tantalizing glimpses of the opera Mendelssohn might have composed, had he lived long enough). Early in 1845 came a request out of the blue from the other side of the world - the newly-created New York Philharmonic Society was inviting him to go to the United States to conduct a "Grand Musical Festival", with an orchestra of 250 and chorus of 500 at his disposal. Mendelssohn declined - he didn't feel his health would be up to such a long and arduous trip, and he told his brother Paul that undertaking such a venture would be "no more possible than a trip to the moon". Instead, he composed a set of six small but perfectly formed organ sonatas for the British publisher Charles Coventry, and worked on his highly virtuosic 2nd Piano Trio, written in Frankfurt during a freak flood of the River Main; perhaps that's reflected in the stormy opening of the trio's first movement!

Darkness falls, and love finds a way. In Act II of Wagner's Tristan und Isolde, the summer night itself seems to shimmer with emotion, as the two lovers consummate their passion beneath a canopy of stars. Yet treachery hides in the shadows, and Wagner follows his greatest love scene with some of the most tragic music he ever wrote. Donald Runnicles and a superb international cast dive deep into the glowing heart of Wagner's epic love story. The concert opens with excerpts from the work that some think gave Wagner his inspiration: Hector Berlioz's scarcely less extraordinary Roméo et Juliette.

An audience with Lee Hall, writer of Billy Elliot and The Pitmen Painters, recorded at The Sage Gateshead as part of the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

The Newcastle born screenwriter and playwright Lee Hall is best known for the hugely successful film and musical Billy Elliot, for which he won a Tony Award and was nominated for an Oscar.

Hall's play The Pitmen Painters, about a group of miners from Ashington in the North East, has been performed throughout the world. He recently updated Alan Plater's 1960s musical drama Close the Coalhouse Door and is now working on a biopic of Elton John.

From a working-class background, much a Hall's work explores the complexities of what class means in the UK. At Free Thinking 2012 Lee Hall discusses class and art, his own life, writing and ideas.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Philip Dodd and recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2012.

Historian Emma Griffin of the University of East Anglia turns to the poor of Victorian Britain to ask what made a good mother then in families struggling to keep body and soul together.

She finds that our own values and ideas about motherhood may not be as instinctive as we like to believe.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 5

Donald Macleod concludes his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years with a look at the genesis of his oratorio Elijah, whose popularity in Victorian England was second only to that of Handel's Messiah - certainly not a claim that could be made today, when it tends to be regarded as the height of kitsch. In 1846, the city of Birmingham invited Mendelssohn to take charge of its music festival. He turned the job down, but agreed instead to compose an oratorio for the festival. After the earlier success of his oratorio St Paul, Mendelssohn had considered composing an Elijah; the Birmingham commission prompted him to return to this idea, which he'd had on the back burner for the past 10 years. The first performance was a huge success - "Never was there a more complete triumph!", as The Times put it - but Mendelssohn wasn't completely satisfied, and immediately set about overhauling the work for the London première the following year. According to a contemporary report it was met with a "long-continued unanimous volley of plaudits, vociferous and deafening applause." Mendelssohn's elation, however, was short-lived. On his return to Germany he was met by a letter from his brother Paul, telling him that their beloved sister Fanny had suffered a series of strokes and died - while rehearsing one of his pieces. Mendelssohn remained in a state of emotional collapse for some time, but when he was able to compose again he poured his grief out in his anguished 6th String Quartet - the last major work he completed before his own death, just two months later.

His most recent collection of poetry is Under the Clock (2005), and his Collected Poems, and Collected Film Poetry, were both published in 2007.

FRI 22:45 Free Thinking (b01npj7v)
Free Thinking Essay

Timothy Secret

Timothy Secret, one of Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk exploring how we react when looked at by animals, recorded at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Our world changes when we're on display. When caught in another person's gaze, some of us strut like a peacock whilst others squirm like a fly.

But how do we react when an animal, rather than a human, looks at us? Is there a difference, and what does this say about our relationship with animals?

In a talk titled "Cat's Eyes", University of Essex philosopher Timothy Secret examines the philosophical consequences of the animal gaze.

The Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival takes place at The Sage Gateshead Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

The New Generation Thinkers are winners of a talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into broadcasts.
