The Rite of Spring

Dance critic Stephanie Jordan traces the explosive influence of the Rite of Spring on modern dance, the shocking combination of Igor Stravinsky's music and Vaslav Nijinsky's choreography, 100 years after the piece was famously premiered in Paris in 1913 and led to uproar.

The programme features interviews with choreographers Akram Khan and Mark Morris, both devising new interpretations of the Rite. Stephanie Jordan meets Deborah Bull, who danced the role of the Chosen Maiden and Monica Mason, for whom the Royal Ballet1s Kenneth MacMillan created his legendary solo choreography. Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer explain how they reconstructed Nijinsky1s 1913 ballet and Marin Alsop describes the physicality involved in conducting Stravinsky1s score today.

First broadcast in May 2013.

It's not known whether Vivaldi himself wrote the sonnets, but the music he wrote reflects each season's essence: birdsong in spring, a stormy summer, harvest revelries and winter's chill. The poems are read by our very own Catherine Bott.

Berg's Lulu

Alban Berg's "Lulu"
Presented by Louise Fryer.
The first of two visits this weekend to Welsh National Opera, for a recording of David Pountney's brilliant new production of Alban Berg's operatic swansong, "Lulu". Unfinished on Berg's death in 1935, tonight's performance includes the British broadcast premiere of Eberhard Kloke's recent completion of the final act. Soprano Marie Arnet debuts in the title role, with baritone Ashley Holland as the darkly complex Dr. Schön. Lothar Köenigs conducts.

Chorus and Orchestra of Welsh National Opera
Lothar Koenigs (conductor)

Berg's sumptuous score breathes life into one of opera's most fascinating characters. "Lulu" is a woman with a troubled past and a fatally irresistible appeal to men. Set in the 1920s, infused with elements of burlesque, surrealism and jazz, Berg's adaptation of Wedekind's plays is a mixture of tragedy and farce. Lulu is a seductress and a murderess who uses sex with a succession of men to attain social advancement. Ultimately downfall follows her ascent up the social ladder. Reduced to prostitution, this twentieth century free-spirit meets a brutal death at the hands of Jack the Ripper.


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b01jqj1j)
In Search of the Balinese Scarecrow

Fire flies glimmer over the paddy fields. Water trickles through volcanic irrigation canals. On the edge of a palm tree fringed field, Balinese farmer, and composer Bapak I Dewa Arnawa stands silent under the shooting stars, listening to the frogs calling back and forth, back and forth.
This is where he draws his inspiration.
"Just like gamelan", he says. And it was.

On the Indonesian island of Bali, music is not just entertainment; it is fully integrated into everyday life. Behind the elaborate walls of family compounds and villages, away from tourist eyes, gamelan orchestras practise daily, slit gongs, called kulkul, call the children to school, and music is offered to the Gods in every ceremony of life. Often a bewilderingly chaotic style of music for the Western ear, gamelan in context can make so much more sense.
Even the scarecrows make music here; from bamboo chimes and whirring clackers, to rusty tin cans and elaborate the plastic bag mobiles, shaken by the farmers and the wind; all to rid the valuable rice fields of the birds.

In the search for the music of scarecrows we encounter not only the natural and concrete sounds found in gamelan; the toads, birds, geckos, frogs and ducks, but also the new generation of composers and choreographers who are inspired by these sounds to create new music and dances. Farmers are still reputed to make the best composers.

Using the scarecrows, wildlife and the gamelan of Bali, "In Search of the Balinese Scarecrow" explores where the music stops and the sounds of nature begin.

Music included in the programme included compositions by Bapak I Made Arnawa, Pak Dewa Allit, and I Dewa Putu Berata, a musician, composer , and the founder of Ãudamani , one of Bali's most innovative new gamelan ensembles.
Emiko Saraswati Susilo is a dancer, singer, and musician who has been active in Balinese and Javanese arts for 25 years. She is artistic director of Gamelan Sekar Jaya, a San Franciscan based group, and associate director of Cudamani in Pengosekan, Ubud, Bali, running International Summer schools for people interested in learning gamelan.

Musical specialists advising on the programme are:
Andy Channing, the UK's foremost teacher of Balinese Gamelan
And jazz musician and composer Ray Sandoval, who is writing his doctoral thesis on Canadian composer Colin McPhee. Thanks to Emiko, Pak Dewa, all those recorded for the programme and also Gregory Ghent, D'Lo, Anjali, Ida, Danu, and all those who taught, played and were part of the Cudamani Summer School 2011

Producer: Sara Jane Hall

First broadcast in June 2012.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01slkwz)
A Cultural History of Syphilis

In the 1490s an apparently new and terrifying disease struck Naples in southern Italy and swept fire-like across Europe, reaping a dreadful human cost.

It must have been as though hell had come early to earth: pustules spread across the genitals and the faces of its many sufferers, unbearable gastrointestinal pain followed upon fevers, screamingly severe headaches and other symptoms. Finally, flesh fell from bones. Syphilis had arrived in Europe, where it would stay, misunderstood, lacking any form of cure, for nearly 500 years.

In its reign (before penicillin all but stopped the scourge in its tracks) syphilis held up a mirror to civilisation and radically influenced social and cultural outlooks as well as the histories of medicine and welfare. Syphilis also spread to the arts where the communities of writers, musicians and painters bore the full force of its impact. When, in the 1980s, Aids struck, it evoked panic and prejudice bearing striking resemblance to the dawn of syphilis in the early 16th century.

In this BBC Radio 3 Sunday Feature, the writer Sarah Dunant examines the impact "The Great Pox" made in the arts and the wider world in key European cities Florence, Ferrara, Paris and finally central London, where a chance discovery by Alexander Fleming ended half a millennium of suffering.

With contributions from Dr. Jonathan Sawday, author of The Body Emblazoned: Dissection and the Human Body in Renaissance Culture; Dr. Kevin Siena, author of Sins of the Flesh: Responding to Sexual Disease in Early Modern Europe; Kevin Brown, author of "The Pox: The Life and Near Death of a Very Social Disease" and curator of the Fleming Museum in London, and cultural historian Dr. Jann Matlock, senior lecturer in French at University College London.


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 (b01sll21)
Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea Episode 2

Lucy Duran heads back to Equatorial Guinea to hear the music of the island of Annobon and meet singer and guitarist Desmali.

Desmali is a quiet emotional man with a sweet toned voice, who comes from the remote island of Annobon, 400 miles south of the capital Malabo, separated from the rest of Equatorial Guinea by Sao Tome and Principe. Desmali is clearly a performer, and in the slum where he lives, ironically named "Niu Bili" meaning New Building, sat under the almond and mango trees he worked an ever growing crowd of elders and children drawn to World Routes' Sunday afternoon recording session. His songs were of love for his guitar, a woman he met called Sonita, but also of a life spent struggling to make ends meet through music. Despite the tinge of wistful melancholy that haunted his words. the music confounded easy definition, so naturally embracing centuries of criss-crossed paths of returned slaves, Europeans and indigenous people that make Equatorial Guinea, and its music so unique.

Home to many different ethnic groups, the Fang, Bubi, Ndowe, Bisio, Krio and others, Equatorial Guinea is spread across a mainland portion, squeezed between Gabon and Cameroon, and a series of islands, the largest being Bioko and home to capital Malabo. The Spanish claimed the country in 1843 as Spanish Guinea, independence came in 1968, followed by the 11-year reign of terror of first president Francisco Macias Nguema. He was overthrown by his nephew, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who at 34 years in the job is now Africa's longest serving leader. Since the discovery of oil in the mid-1990s Equatorial Guinea has become an extremely wealthy nation, and is undergoing extensive infrastructural change.

In the week that marks the 50th Anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay becoming the first men to reach the summit of Mount Everest, Sarah Walker?s guest is the mountaineer, writer, broadcaster and public speaker, Stephen Venables, the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen. He reached the summit alone, after climbing with a small American-Canadian team, by a new route up the gigantic Kangshung Face.

Everest was a thrilling highlight in a career which has taken Stephen right through the Himalaya, from Afghanistan to Tibet, making first ascents of many previously unknown mountains. His adventures have also taken him to the Rockies, the Andes, the Antarctic island South Georgia, and East and South Africa.

The stories of these travels have enthralled Stephen?s lecture audiences in theatres, schools and university clubs and at corporate conferences all over the world. He has also appeared in television documentaries for BBC, ITV and National Geographic, presented for Radio 4 and appeared in the IMAX movie Shackleton?s Antarctic Adventure.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00sv70k)
Gabriel Faure (1845-1924)

Fauré: The City Awaits

Donald Macleod travels to Paris to chart the life of Gabriel Fauré. He's joined by the composer's English biographer Jessica Duchen, pianist Billy Eidi, and the leading authority on Fauré's music Jean-Michel Nectoux.

Listen to his work and you'd think he was the perfect Parisian gentleman. Fauré's music is the epitome of charm, of a Gallic gentleman's reserve. There's nothing offensive, only page after page of utter beauty and ravishing melody. But look into his eyes and you get hints of another story: those dark orbs of a deep-thinking southerner, a man who always struggled for recognition, but who never lost the ability to seduce a lady.

This week Donald Macleod is in Paris to follow Fauré's footsteps, and to probe this most enigmatic of personalities. From the start, Fauré is an outsider. Sent by his family to study at a school for gifted youngsters, the composer quickly decides that the traditional route is not for him. Instead of heading to the conservatoire, dogged by its reputation for fustiness, he falls in with the world of aristocratic music-making. And at the former home of singer Pauline Viardot, Donald Macleod rediscovers something of the allure for Fauré, not just musical opportunities but also the attraction of a highly cultured lady in the form of Viardot's daughter.

We soon discover that this is a template for the composer's life. A few blocks away we take a look inside one of the city's stunning former musical salons. Here, Winnaretta Singer, daughter of the sewing machine king, hosted the likes of Marcel Proust and Georges Sand. Fauré too was a regular, and even embarked on a dramatic work for the salon with legendary writer Paul Verlaine. It was to be ill-fated though: Verlaine succumbed spectacularly to drink and his plots became so off-the-wall that Fauré had to abandon his project.

There are more refined moments too. In the ever-controversial church of La Madeleine, at once a tribute to the revolution and a souped-up banking hall cum railway station, we find the inspiration of Fauré's most famous work, the Requiem, in the death of a local architect, the passing of the composer's own father, and the astounding acoustics of the building itself.

But it's in the equally echoey hallways of the Paris Conservatoire buildings where we get closest to the real Fauré. It took an internal scandal before they would let him in, but here at last Fauré gets a chance to cement his reputation as a member of the French establishment as director of the institution. Here we find the very room where he had his office, and (in the Salle Fauré) the stage where he would take performance exams, and even an ante-room solely for students to pull themselves together or recover their shattered composure before and after playing to the great man.



Donald Macleod begins his week in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, at Passy Cemetery, where Fauré is buried with family members, friends, and leading cultural figures. Together with writer Jessica Duchen he charts the complex web of personalities in the composer's early life, including a formative bond with the musician Camille Saint-Saëns which at times seemingly bordered on the sexual.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01slngw)
BBC SSO - Liszt, Bartok, Brahms

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Ian Skelly

The BBC Scottish Symphony is joined by its Principal Guest Conductor Ilan Volkov for a lively evening of virtuoso music of Hungarian origin, from Franz List and Bela Bartok, alongside a great Romantic statement written in the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Johannes Brahms' Fourth Symphony.

Franz Liszt's Faust-inspired 'Der Tanz in der Dorfschenke', better known as the First Mephisto Waltz, presents a spirited musical account of diabolical fiddle-playing at a village Inn. Patricia Kopatchinskaja joins the orchestra for Bartok's Violin Concerto from 1938. Both technically dazzling and forward-looking it combines 12-tone melody with the folk dance idiom from Transylvanian fiddle music.

Bartok's concerto is constructed around an extensive and ingenious set of variations, which find a resonance in the concluding passacaglia variations to Brahms' Fourth Symphony, the final piece in this programme. A work which amalgamates techniques from historical counterpoint, much loved by Brahms, with the composer's characteristic romantic harmonies and lyrical melodies the Fourth Symphony is Brahms' ultimate achievement in the symphonic form.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b01slm5m)
Life in Fragments: Stories from the Cairo Genizah

The Discovery

The Cairo Genizah is a treasure trove of manuscripts from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Old Cairo that portrays over 800 years of community life. Rediscovered in the 19th century, this vast communal paper-bin contained hundreds upon thousands of scraps of rag-paper and parchment. It's an unedited archive of prayers, letters, poems, magical spells, alchemical recipes, children's exercise books, divorce deeds and pre-nuptial agreements that paints a lively and intimate picture of daily medieval life in Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

In this first essay, Dr Esther-Miriam Wagner of the Genizah Research Unit tells the story of the discovery of the Genizah inside the ancient and crumbling synagogue of Al-Fustat, a suburb of modern day Cairo. Featuring a legendary curse, a pair of intrepid Scottish twins, an eccentric scholar and one very generous rabbi.

Produced by Michele Banal and Miranda Hinkley.
A Nightjar production.

First broadcast in May 2013.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01slm5p)
Tomasz Stańko and his New York Quartet, Gary Burton in Session

Jez Nelson presents Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stańko and his New York Quartet in concert at London's Barbican.

There has always been a sense of the 'poetic' to much of the music made by Poland's most famous living jazz musician. Whether in the raft of acclaimed ECM releases Stańko has produced over the last twenty years or in the pioneering free music he made with Krzysztof Komeda in Krakow in the '60s, his is a music in which space, lyricism and a concern for creating atmospheres remains paramount.

With his latest New York Quartet project, Stańko cites the poetry of fellow Pole Wisława Szymborska as providing the "ideas, insights and impetus" behind the new compositions. And while much of that inspiration brings about stanzas of Stańko's trademark brooding trumpet, there is fire and freedom in his playing and in that of band members Thomas Morgan (bass), Gerald Cleaver (drums) and David Virelles (piano) that means this poetry is full of varied meter, rhythm and tone.

Also on the programme, an exclusive session from one of the greats of jazz vibraphone, Gary Burton, in duet with guitarist Julian Lage.

His idiosyncratic but touching words reflect on his condition, but also describe how he sees the glory of God in all created things: mythical, abstract and real - even his own cat makes an appearance. Britten's wonderfully imaginative music was composed for St Matthew's Church, Northampton in 1943.

James MacMillan's equally powerful Cantos Sagrados fuses Latin liturgical texts with poems by Ariel Dorfman and Ana Maria Mendoza in a powerful protest against political repression in Latin America.

Paul Mealor's music became known worldwide after his motet Ubi caritas was sung at last year's Royal Wedding. His new work turns to Celtic myth, and tells of the inhabitants of an Anglesey village, cast under a spell by a mysterious stranger. The work has been commissioned by the John Armitage Memorial - a charity promoting new works for chorus - and tonight receives its first performance.


TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01slnbh)
Philip Hoare, Morality and the Law, Andrew Upton

Tonight on Night Waves, Anne McElvoy discusses ethics and the law. Several politicians have complained recently about tax avoidance by big companies. They say that even though avoiding tax is not illegal, it's not always moral either. So where do ethics and the law come apart? And what's the point of law anyway? Anne is joined by a lawyer, a political campaigner and a philosopher: Geoffrey Robertson QC, Mark Littlewood, Director General of the Institute of Economic Affairs, and Angie Hobbs, Professor of the Public Understanding of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield.

In "The Sea Inside", writer Philip Hoare explores his fascination and fear of the sea in a journey which takes him from his home in Southampton to the other side of the world. He explains to Anne McElvoy why we all have a relationship to the sea, and just as it sustains and threatens us, it is also where we come from.

Plus, Australian writer Andrew Upton discusses his sometimes controversial adaptations of classic Russian plays and explains to Anne why he inserted an egg fight into his recent production of Maxim Gorky's Children of the Sun.

Produced by Luke Mulhall.

Life in Fragments: Stories from the Cairo Genizah

Letters

Ben Outhwaite, Head of the Genizah Research Unit, shows how private letters between medieval merchants reveal an international trading network that united Jews, Muslims and Christians across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

The Cairo Genizah is a treasure trove of manuscripts from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Old Cairo that portrays over 800 years of community life. Rediscovered in the 19th century, this vast communal paper-bin contained hundreds upon thousands of scraps of rag-paper and parchment. It's an unedited archive of prayers, letters, poems, magical spells, alchemical recipes, children's exercise books, divorce deeds and pre-nuptial agreements that paints a lively and intimate picture of daily medieval life in Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Produced by Michele Banal and Miranda Hinkley.

In the week that marks the 50th Anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay becoming the first men to reach the summit of Mount Everest, Sarah Walker?s guest is the mountaineer, writer, broadcaster and public speaker, Stephen Venables, the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen. He reached the summit alone, after climbing with a small American-Canadian team, by a new route up the gigantic Kangshung Face.

Everest was a thrilling highlight in a career which has taken Stephen right through the Himalaya, from Afghanistan to Tibet, making first ascents of many previously unknown mountains. His adventures have also taken him to the Rockies, the Andes, the Antarctic island South Georgia, and East and South Africa.

The stories of these travels have enthralled Stephen?s lecture audiences in theatres, schools and university clubs and at corporate conferences all over the world. He has also appeared in television documentaries for BBC, ITV and National Geographic, presented for Radio 4 and appeared in the IMAX movie Shackleton?s Antarctic Adventure.

Race, Nate Silver, RB Kitaj, Philanthropy

Philip Dodd reviews the UK premiere of David Mamet's controversial play Race and discusses its impact and arguments with Susannah Clapp and Kit Davies.

Nate Silver is the star statistician who accurately predicted the results of every state in the 2012 US election. He tells Philip why every child should study statistics and whether careful data analysis could have predicted the attack on the World Trade Center in New York in 2011.

Not long before his death the artist RB Kitaj donated a collection of over 300 of his prints to the British Museum now some of them are in display for the first time. Philip Dodd has been to see them and asks why the artist might have chosen the British Museum to host this collection.

The gap between the very wealthy and the poorest is ever widening whilst private donations to charities and good causes are shrinking. A new book calls for a societal change in our attitude to philanthropy. Philip and guests discuss the moral implications of giving and being grateful.

Philharmonia
Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor

Salonen and the Philharmonia celebrate the centenary of one of the most famous premieres in musical history: on 29 May 1913 Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring took the musical world by storm. Provoking one of the most famous riots in musical history, the whole thing ended in uproar with the young conductor, Pierre Monteux, and his musicians fleeing for their lives. Puccini, who was in the Paris audience that night, described it as 'the creation of a madman.' Yet Stravinsky claimed that he was merely 'the vessel through which the Rite passed.' Opening the concert is Debussy's no less groundbreaking Prelude à l'après-midi d'un faune. 'From that moment,' wrote Pierre Boulez, 'music began to beat with a new pulse'.

The Rite of Spring, George Monbiot, Mary Rose, Suffrage Plays

In the week that Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring celebrates its centenary, British choreographer Akram Khan presents a new work which takes inspiration from the hugely influential ballet. iTMOi or In the Mind of Igor, takes Stravinsky's theme of sacrifice and adds new choreography and music from Nitin Sawhney, Jocelyn Pook and Ben Frost. Debra Craine delivers her verdict.

Environmentalist George Monbiot's new book Feral argues the case for a "rewilding" of Britain, and a radically different kind of conservation which lets Nature run wild. He also calls for a reintroduction of beavers, bison and boar to this country and also, controversially, wolves. Dame Fiona Reynolds, was Director of the National Trust and has a totally different approach.

New Generation thinker and Tudor historian Jonathan Healey reports from the new Mary Rose Museum.

Naomi Paxton and Fern Riddell discuss the Actresses' Franchise League and the plays they wrote to support the cause of Women's Suffrage.

Life in Fragments: Stories from the Cairo Genizah

Three Lives

Daniel Davies of the Genizah Research Unit sheds light on three very different lives by reading the private documents of the legendary philosopher Maimonides, community leader Solomon ben Judah and Indian Ocean trader Abraham ben Yiju,

They are all from the Genizah papers. The Cairo Genizah is a treasure trove of manuscripts from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Old Cairo that portrays over 800 years of community life. Rediscovered in the 19th century, this vast communal paper-bin contained hundreds upon thousands of scraps of rag-paper and parchment - an unedited archive of prayers, letters, poems, magical spells, alchemical recipes, children's exercise books, divorce deeds and pre-nuptial agreements that paints a lively and intimate picture of daily medieval life in Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Produced by Michele Banal and Miranda Hinkley.

First broadcast in May 2013.

In the week that marks the 50th Anniversary of Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay becoming the first men to reach the summit of Mount Everest, Sarah Walker?s guest is the mountaineer, writer, broadcaster and public speaker, Stephen Venables, the first Briton to climb Everest without supplementary oxygen. He reached the summit alone, after climbing with a small American-Canadian team, by a new route up the gigantic Kangshung Face.

Everest was a thrilling highlight in a career which has taken Stephen right through the Himalaya, from Afghanistan to Tibet, making first ascents of many previously unknown mountains. His adventures have also taken him to the Rockies, the Andes, the Antarctic island South Georgia, and East and South Africa.

The stories of these travels have enthralled Stephen?s lecture audiences in theatres, schools and university clubs and at corporate conferences all over the world. He has also appeared in television documentaries for BBC, ITV and National Geographic, presented for Radio 4 and appeared in the IMAX movie Shackleton?s Antarctic Adventure.
