William Byrd

Episode 1

As part of Radio 3 Celebrating British Music, Catherine Bott introduces the first of two programmes about the life and music of William Byrd, in conversation with conductor Andrew Carwood.

Byrd is arguably one of the most prolific and versatile composer of the English Renaissance, who wrote in many of the forms current in England at the time, including various types of sacred and secular polyphony, keyboard (the so-called Virginalist school) and consort music.

Catherine Bott and Andrew Carwood present a comprehensive profile of the man and some of his most glorious music.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b0260ht6)
Verdi 200 - Nabucco

Verdi 200:

BBC Radio 3's Verdi 200 Season continues with Nabucco, starring Placido Domingo singing the title role for the very first time anywhere in the world and Liudmyla Monastryska in the dazzling role of Abigaille, in a new production by Daniele Abbado recorded last month at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Domingo sings yet another baritone role as he takes on Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Babylonians, in the biblical story which so much resounded in the hearts of Italians at the time. The fight of the Hebrews against oppression and exile took a different twist in a tale of love and patriotism, represented in the celebrated chorus 'Va Pensiero', one of Verdi's most famous pieces. Nicola Luisotti conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
Presented by Martin Handley.

Abigaille.....Liudmyla Monastryka (soprano)

SAT 21:00 Between the Ears (b0260htd)
Sebald's Apocalyptic Vision

This Between the Ears offers an insight into one of the strangest and most original writers of the 20th Century, W. G. Sebald.

Polymathic and profound, the intricacies of Sebald's writing cannot be summarised or explained. But this programme hopes to explore a few of the themes that most preoccupied Sebald in his life and writing: in particular, memory, history and landscape.

A voluntary emigrant from Germany to England, Sebald settled in East Anglia in 1970. The Rings of Saturn, a book first published in German in 1995, recounts a long walk down the coast, from Somerleyton to Orford. The narrator is a man who seems to be partly based on Sebald himself.

Last year, the acclaimed theatre director Katie Mitchell put The Rings of Saturn or Die Ringe des Saturn on stage - not in England but in Cologne, Germany.

This programme follows her as she takes her German actors to East Anglia to experience at first-hand the landscape in which Sebald was writing and walking. They explore a coastline, which - as Sebald was acutely aware - looks out towards Germany, across what used to be known until the late 19th century as "the German Ocean".

The trip along the coast precipitates the actors' personal reflections and memories of their grandparents' generation during the Second World War and the way the history of that time has been handed down to them.

The programme introduces The Rings of Saturn through beautiful readings by the actor Stephen Dillane, interspersed with music by composer Paul Clark, and sounds recorded on the Suffolk coastline; but it also shows Sebald's contemporary importance in a world in which the significance of history, time and place can so easily be dismissed.

First broadcast in June 2013.


SAT 21:30 Pre-Hear (b0260htq)
Steve Martland

Steve Martland died suddenly last month. The news shocked the music world; no-one would have anticipated such an event. Many were looking forward to a new creative surge by this composer, known for his forthright views on society, the establishment and music in general. His recent Sea Songs had their world premiere last year and their English premiere in this concert, given by the BBC Singers in February, conducted by Paul Brough. Far from being simple celebrations of the seafaring life, the works explore the social undercurrents that made men go to sea, risking, and often losing, their lives in the process.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b02vct2g)
Tom Service presents new music by Brian Ferneyhough and Benedict Mason as part of Radio 3's celebration of British Music, in recordings made at last year's Festival d'Automne in Paris. And in the first of four interviews with British composers turning 70 this year, Ferneyhough talks to Robert Worby about his early landmark score Sonatas for String Quartet and the ways in which it pointed to his later works.

And we pay tribute to the great French composer, Henri Dutilleux who died towards the end of last month at the age of ninety seven. His haunting orchestral work Timbres, espace, movement is inspired by a Van Gogh's "The Starry Night." As the artist wrote at the time of painting it: "I have a terrible need for religion. And so I go outside at night and paint the stars."

Sunday - Martin Handley

Martin Handley presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show, celebrating British Music and continuing our Musical Map of Britain.


SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b0261v9l)
Beginning a short season of Schumann Konzertstücke with two contrasting works for piano and orchestra and four horns and orchestra, James Jolly also presents music by composers and performers who fled Nazi Germany to enrich British musical life.

This week's baroque choral work is the motet by Schütz: Die Himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes, "The heavens declare the glory of God", SWV386.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0261v9q)
Sean O'Brien

As part of the British music season on Radio 3, poets from across the UK reveal their favourite music.

Sean O'Brien is a perfect choice for Private Passions because his poems capture the musical soundscapes of the north-east of England where he lives: the cries of gulls, the wash of the sea, the rumble of trains. In fact he's obsessed by trains, and for O'Brien, like many other poets, journeys by train are an inspiration and a form of meditation. So one of his choices is Steve Reich's hypnotic work Different Trains, in which the composer mixes fragments of train whistles and announcements. Sean O'Brien's other choices include Little Feat, Schubert, Vaughan Williams, Debussy's La Mer, and Prokofiev's film music for Eisenstein's Alexander Nevsky, a film he first saw when skiving off games as a 16-year-old. He used to be a drummer in a rock band and likes to listen to everything very loud, so Miles Davies is the perfect soundtrack to Sunday mornings ... Michael Berkeley's guest Sean O'Brien reveals his Private Passions.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b0261v9t)
William Byrd

Episode 2

As part of Radio 3 Celebrating British Music, Catherine Bott introduces the second of two programmes about the life and music of William Byrd, in conversation with conductor Andrew Carwood of St Paul's Cathedral and The Cardinall's Musick.

Byrd is arguably one of the most prolific and versatile composer of the English Renaissance, who wrote in many of the forms current in England at the time, including various types of sacred and secular polyphony, keyboard (the so-called Virginalist school) and consort music.

Catherine Bott and Andrew Carwood present a comprehensive profile of the man and some of his most glorious music.


SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b0261v9x)
BBC Philharmonic - Sibelius

Recorded on Saturday 8 June at The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by John Storgårds, performs Sibelius's fourth and second symphonies.

Sibelius: Symphony No 4
Sibelius: Symphony No 2

BBC Philharmonic
John Storgårds (conductor)

Join John Storgårds and the BBC Philharmonic for the second concert in their cycle of Sibelius's symphonies. The Fourth Symphony, without doubt his darkest, was written at a low point in Sibelius's life, during his struggle to come to terms with his diagnosis of cancer and to emerge with determination. The Second could hardly be more different. From playful beginning to triumphant finish, there's never been a more inspiring musical portrait of a nation awakening to freedom.

They'll also be sharing their experiences of performing with the BBC's flagship chamber choir.


SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b0261vb2)
Untitled

It often seems that we live in a world where nothing exists unless it has a title of some kind. And yet there are experiences that we can't easily name... unique emotions that defy all categories. Our struggle to find a name sometimes expresses itself as poetry, sometimes as music... even if the attempt ends in failure. Of course attaching the word "untitled" to anything doesn't really help as this can serve as just another sort of title. That's the nature of things... or maybe just human nature.
In Words and Music this evening the actors Andrew Scott and Amelia Lowdell venture into the weightless world where experiences and what we call them have been allowed to float free... the realm of the untitled. Catullus, Wordsworth, Samuel Menashe and Emily Dickinson are swirling around with them out there as well as Benjamin Britten, Morton Feldman, Schumann and Conlon Nancarrow. There'll be others too although they may be hard to distinguish to begin with, having escaped their usual moorings. Should we revel in this buoyancy or prepare for a nasty fall? That's up to you.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


SUN 19:30 Sunday Feature (b02626dc)
Stirring Up a Revolution

"Café spaces, coffee houses and culture and politics work together almost from the genesis, the very beginning of cafes". Dr Mohamed-Salah Omri, Oxford University.

Author and journalist Tarek Osman returns to the Middle East to explore how the apparently unassuming establishment of the Café has served as a vibrant hub of change in the political tsunamis that have swept - and are still sweeping - through the region.

From neighbourhood sanctuaries to while away the time, to highly charged cultural salons, no two Arab cafés are the same. They are lively centres shaped by the community around them and have long been the targeted nuclei of free thinking. Poets such as, Awlad Ahmed, profess to have learned their trade, both in politics and art, in these venues - shaping their work and their lives.

To discover just how instrumental they have been, Tarek takes listeners inside 500 year old cafés in Tunis, legendary haunts of Nobel prize writer Naguib Mahfouz in Cairo, buzzing 'western' style cafes full of both men and women, and the vandalised but still open coffee houses clinging to the outskirts of Tahrir Square.

As the lyrical sounds of Arabic and French swim over a heady mix of smoke, mint tea and coffee beans, we hear the poetry and prose that was born in the café and that in turn immortalises this ancient institution. Tarek speaks to the new generation of thinkers, writers and activists who frequent new venues and we step back in time to uncover hidden printing presses and prowling policemen.

But why is the café a source of political expression and contention? Wherever there is a public space where people express themselves, there is opposition and the café and the state have always battled. With governments trying to impose new restrictions and the continued rise of social media, will the cafe continue to thrive or are its days already numbered?

Producer: India Rakusen.


SUN 20:15 Drama on 3 (b007mcs0)
Elgar's Rondo

Composer Edward Elgar struggles to overcome doubts and fears following the premiere of his second symphony. Friends endeavour to help him re-ignite his creative spark. The reaction to this work, and the Rondo in particular, only heightens the doubts and fears which plague him for much of his creative life.

Later, while struggling to express in music the horror of the First World War, his family and admirers endeavour to help him re-ignite his creative spark.

The second in a season of plays by veteran radio dramatist David Pownall, Elgar's Rondo was first broadcast in June 2007.

Elgar ..... David Horovitch
Alice ..... Sarah Badel
Jaeger/George V ..... Robert Glenister
Windflower ..... Emma Fielding
Schuster ..... Ian Masters
Carice/Mother/Cellist ..... Clare Corbett
Bernard Shaw ..... Gerard Murphy
Mark/Father ..... Harry Myers
Father John ..... Carl Prekopp
Bandmaster ..... John Evitts
Paul Hooker ..... Robert Lister

Directed by Martin Jenkins

In an English country garden Elgar is hiding away from failure, heartbroken by the bad reception given to his second symphony. Only three years earlier he had been hailed as England's answer to Beethoven and loaded with honours. Although the piano-tuner's son is now famous, knighted and wealthy, he cannot rise above criticism of the one piece of music he has written that is most detectably him. He receives sympathy from every quarter - his wife, his ghosts, his dream-woman, his priest, his friends, even his king.

The guns in Flanders can be heard in the Sussex garden but Elgar cannot respond. He refuses to go through the sufferings and mental dangers that being a creative artist expose him to. He wants to be himself first and a servant of music's terrible duty second. Taking this choice, he imagines he will be free from pain - but the muse knows better.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01bs9w7)
Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry is Spurred on by Wesley

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music, including the revitalisation of British musical life. Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry (1848-1918).

Parry's own wish to study music, and later also to marry the love of his life, were both frowned upon by his elders, but he eventually achieved both, proving himself to be a man of determination and ability. He would, however, go on to be a victim of his own success, with the nation's lust for oratorios, an area of music in which Parry would be pigeonholed. His works were successful in the UK, but very few ever achieved much further afield, and although he was responsible for heralding a British musical renaissance, the nation would largely forget Parry towards the end of his life, in favour of younger talent. Parry did go on to have an incredible impact upon new composers in his role as Director of the Royal College of Music, and despite ill health throughout most of his life, he was never one to turn a student away or not offer help and advice.

Hubert Parry was born into an affluent family, with certain expectations being placed upon him with regard to his future career and religious beliefs. Parry would go on to fight against these confines, and whilst studying at Eton, he would also pursue his musical ambitions on the side, including composing anthems such as Crossing the Bar. The organ would also prove to be an area of interest to Parry throughout his career, with works such as his Fantasia and Fugue in G. In fact we see Parry in the organ loft with the senior composer Samuel Sebastian Wesley, who encourages the young lad to pursue a career in music.

When Parry went to Oxford, he soon acquired his music degree, and was active in devising musical events in his lodgings, including the performance of chamber music. Parry would go on to compose many chamber works, especially in his early career, including a Nonet. Also whilst still at Oxford, Parry searched out music tutors such as Pierson, who instructed Parry further in the art of instrumental writing. This tuition would eventually feed into larger works, such as his first Symphony.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b0263nbn)
Slade School artists, Turkey, Kierkegaard, Sarah Dillon

Philip Dodd examines A Crisis of Brilliance a new exhibition at London's Dulwich Picture gallery charting the evolution and legacy of the early 20th century group of Slade school of artists from Paul Nash to Stanley Spencer, Mark Gertler, David Bomberg, CRW Nevinson and Dora Carrington. They were among the most well-known and distinctive British artists of the early twentieth century and became linked with the Futurists, the Vorticists and the Bloomsbury Group, and befriended the leading writers and intellectuals of the day. Philip talks to David Boyd-Haycock the curator of the exhibition.

As Turkey's unexpected eruption of anti-government protest continues, Philip Dodd explores the underlying reasons for civil society's dissatisfactions. Gathered round the Nightwaves table are the novelist Elif Shafak, Karl Sharro, a political commentator, and Professor Benjamin Fortna, Professor in Middle-Eastern history at the School of Oriental and African Studies. They reflect on the nature of Turkey's transition to modernity , the strengths and weaknesses of Turkish democracy now and whether the current Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan will one day be known as father of the nation, like Ataturk before him.

Sarah Dillon is Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Literature in the School of English at the University of St Andrews and one of this year's New Generation Thinkers. Her column is on the role of analogy in science. She argues that it's not just something scientists use to explain their ideas but part of how scientific explanation works.

Søren Kierkegaard is noted for books with titles like Fear & Trembling, The Concept of Dread and The Sickness Unto Death. What's less well known is that the grandfather of existentialism was also a sophisticated humourist who used irony, satire and sarcasm to shake his readers out of their complacent attitudes. Philip is joined by theologian George Pattison and the Danish stand-up comedian Claus Damgaard for a Kierkegaardian lesson in freedom in his bi-centenary year.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01bzr2x)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Edith Hall

When we think of the nude we usually think of the female nude and in Western art in particular we're often contemplating an image where the artist is primarily concerned with sensuality and desire. If we spare a thought for the male nude at all he tends to appear as a figure symbolising courage and endurance. Both perspectives are, of course, a simplification or distortion. This week's Essay series - Men Only: An Informal History of the Male Nude - is a kind of corrective to that astigmatism.
In the first essay the classicist Edith Hall examines the ideals of the Greeks and the Romans. She begins with Myron's discus thrower from 460 BC and moves via Marilyn Monroe and Leni Riefenstahl to the images of Antinous, the great love of the Roman Emperor, Hadrian. Along the way she rediscovers the shock of her first encounters with the Classical tradition and reflects on the impact this continues to have on our lives today.

Producer: Zahid Warley

First broadcast in February 2012.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01pygq4)
Django Bates' Belovèd Trio

Reinterpreting the music of a legend can be a perilous business, but pianist Django Bates gives a masterclass on the subject with his Belovèd Trio, as we continue our celebration of British music this month. Charlie Parker is the band's touchstone, although the band have lately begun to weave originals by Bates into their setlist too, including on their recent second album. The band is a highly attuned unit, with the music evolving through shifting feels, textures and tempos. Bates is on great form at the piano, and Peter Bruun (drums) and Petter Eldh (bass) propel things along with subtlety and a constant sense of exploration. This concert, recorded in Sheffield, was first broadcast earlier in 2013.

Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry Goes Into Insurance

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

Whilst still at Oxford, Parry was very active in musical activities such as the Exeter College Musical Society. This gave him the opportunity to hear many of his own works, such as songs and partsongs. Parry would continue to compose music for the voice throughout his career, including songs such as More fond than Cushat Dove, and the partsong What voice of gladness.

When Parry left Oxford, he went into insurance much to the pleasure of his father. This also provided Parry with a level of respectability, which his future mother-in-law very much approved of, eventually allowing him to marry her daughter Maude. Throughout his early career with Lloyds, Parry continued his musical activities, always searching for a piano and a composition teacher to support him. He continued to compose around this time, including works for the piano such as his Charakterbilder.

Parry's search for musical support brought him to the pianist and teacher Dannreuther, who frequently held his own chamber music gatherings. This allowed Parry the opportunity to compose and hear his works, such as his first Piano Trio. Dannreuther and Parry also both shared a love for the music of Wagner, which can be heard in Parry's orchestral work Concertstuck, composed after he'd visited Beyreuth.

Live from BBC Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff

Ketting, Bartok

Live from BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Final musical thoughts from Prokofiev - his 7th Symphony, and Bartok, his 3rd Piano Concerto with Jean-Eflam Bavouzet. Jac van steen conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Ketting: Symphony no.1
Bartok: Piano Concerto no.3

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Jac van Steen (Principal Guest Conductor)

Principal Guest Conductor Jac van Steen conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in two musical farewells and an ambitious symphonic first. Written at the close of their lives, Prokofiev's Seventh Symphony is both nostalgic and has a wide-eyed childlike innocence, while Bartok's Third Piano Concerto is warm and valedictory. Each is among its composer's best-loved works. And written within ten years of both, Otto Ketting's First Symphony is an ambitious early work by one of Holland's most important composers.

Otto Ketting (1935-2012) was perhaps the most important composer in the Netherlands to continue the great tradition of Gustav Mahler and Alban Berg, wonderfully demonstrated in his First Symphony. His musical style combines the soundworld of Stravinsky's objectivity and Berg's emotionality, writing from a modernist perspective that takes tonality and atonality equally. It's all wrapped up in utterly exuberant orchestral colours, no doubt harking back to his earlier career as a solo trumpeter in orchestras. In his own words, "Music should be about emotions and experiences, time and surroundings..."

Bartok left his native Hungary in 1940 to settle in America, but during his final five years, despite the many honours bestowed upon him, he had few offers of real work. Life remained precarious. The Third Piano Concerto was his last work, written whilst suffering from leukemia, the composer finally copied out the score from his sick bed. It's far less astringent than the previous two piano concertos, it's simpler with sparser textures, revealing the mellow side of Bartok's musical personality. At the end of his life, he returned to the melodies of his Hungarian roots, and incorporated his personal "nature music" - bird calls and insect noises in wind, muted brass, xylpophone and scurrying piano runs. The soloist is French pianist Jean-Efflam-Bavouzet, who's won high praise as a searching, penetrating and imaginatively fired musician, endlessly curious in his exploration of any composer's unique sound palette and language. His Bartok performances have been critically acclaimes as soulful, effervescent and "...pure, unaffected delight...".

After being criticised by the Soviet authroties for "formalism, decedance and bourgeois decay", Prokofiev decided on a more direct and approachable style for his final symphony. Originally the seventh symphony was intended to be for children's audience, with imaginative orchestration and hints of the flavour of his Classical Symphony. When the composer attended the premiere in 1952 it was to be his last public appearnace, he died just 5 months later. Four years later, the Seventh Symphony won the Lenin prize for music.

Prokofiev: Symphony No. 7

Stephen Johnson examines Prokofiev's Seventh Symphony. It was written at a difficult time in Prokofiev's life. At the Congress of Soviet Composers in 1948, Prokofiev, along with other composers, was accused by Stalins's advisor on culture, Andrei Zhdanov, of 'formalism, decadence and bourgeois decay'. His response was write a symphony might fit the political agenda, yet at the same time hold true to his musical values. Tragically, it would be Prokofiev's final symphonic statement; he died just months after the work's premiere in 1952.

Final musical thoughts from Prokofiev - his 7th Symphony, and Bartok, his 3rd Piano Concerto with Jean-Eflam Bavouzet. Jac van steen conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Mussorgsky (arr. Shostakovich): Khovanschina - Prelude to act I ("Dawn on the Moskva river")
Prokofiev: Symphony no.7

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Jac van Steen (Principal Guest Conductor)

Principal Guest Conductor Jac van Steen conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in two musical farewells and an ambitious symphonic first. Written at the close of their lives, Prokofiev's Seventh Symphony is both nostalgic and has a wide-eyed childlike innocence, while Bartok's Third Piano Concerto is warm and valedictory. Each is among its composer's best-loved works. And written within ten years of both, Otto Ketting's First Symphony is an ambitious early work by one of Holland's most important composers.

Otto Ketting (1935-2012) was perhaps the most important composer in the Netherlands to continue the great tradition of Gustav Mahler and Alban Berg, wonderfully demonstrated in his First Symphony. His musical style combines the soundworld of Stravinsky's objectivity and Berg's emotionality, writing from a modernist perspective that takes tonality and atonality equally. It's all wrapped up in utterly exuberant orchestral colours, no doubt harking back to his earlier career as a solo trumpeter in orchestras. In his own words, "Music should be about emotions and experiences, time and surroundings..."

Bartok left his native Hungary in 1940 to settle in America, but during his final five years, despite the many honours bestowed upon him, he had few offers of real work. Life remained precarious. The Third Piano Concerto was his last work, written whilst suffering from leukemia, the composer finally copied out the score from his sick bed. It's far less astringent than the previous two piano concertos, it's simpler with sparser textures, revealing the mellow side of Bartok's musical personality. At the end of his life, he returned to the melodies of his Hungarian roots, and incorporated his personal "nature music" - bird calls and insect noises in wind, muted brass, xylpophone and scurrying piano runs. The soloist is French pianist Jean-Efflam-Bavouzet, who's won high praise as a searching, penetrating and imaginatively fired musician, endlessly curious in his exploration of any composer's unique sound palette and language. His Bartok performances have been critically acclaimes as soulful, effervescent and "...pure, unaffected delight...".

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b01bzrgr)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Partha Mitter

Where is the male nude in Indian art? Is there such a thing? And if he's there for all to see why has he proved invisible to all but the most discerning of Western eyes? The art historian, Partha Mitter, answers all these questions in the second instalment of Men Only- An Informal History of the Male Nude. He explores both the differences and the similarities between the Classical tradition and the Hindu one pausing to recall his own experiences as a 14 year old life artist in Calcuttta and as a not so accidental tourist cowering beneath a giant, erect Jain statue on the outskirts of Bangalore.

Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry and the Birth of Modern English Music

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

Parry in his early thirties was enjoying the support and friendship of the pianist Edward Dannreuther. This friendship would allow Parry the chance to compose and hear many chamber works at his mentor's chamber evenings, including his Violin Sonata in D major, composed at the request of Dannreuther.

Parry's status as a composer would soon be on the up, with a commission from the Gloucestershire Festival. His response was the choral work Prometheus Unbound, which some say heralded the birth of modern English music. This popularity in writing choral music would develop further, allowing Parry the opportunity to write one of best known scores, Blest Pair of Sirens.

Parry was now appointed a teacher at the newly established Royal College of Music, and colleagues would soon be criticising him for his interest in Wagner. Like Wagner, Parry was attracted to the art from of opera. Yet unlike Wagner, Parry's only attempt in the form, Guenever, was a total failure. During this time though Parry did compose one of his most popular orchestral works, his third Symphony, nicknamed The English.

Live from Snape Maltings at the 2013 Aldeburgh Festival

Presented by Louise Fryer

Benjamin Britten wrote two operas based on ghost stories by Henry James. In a BBC Radio 3 and Aldeburgh music co-commission in Britten's centenary year, jazz trumpeter and composer Guy Barker has worked with author Robert Ryan to complete this trilogy with his new work "That Obscure Hurt". Adapting the James short story The Jolly Corner, Barker's work for orchestra and jazz orchestra incorporates both jazz and echoes of Britten's operas to create a 70-minute-long suite.

Louise Fryer presents live from Snape Maltings at the 2013 Aldeburgh Festival as the BBC Concert Orchestra join forces with the Guy Barker Jazz Orchestra, conducted by the composer to perform "That Obscure Hurt".

WED 22:45 The Essay (b01bzsf1)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Gabriel Gbadamosi

The male nude in Africa is a vexed, political question. So its perhaps inevitable that the writer and broadcaster, Gabriel Gbadamosi has chosen an olblique, provocative approach to the subject. Drawing on his Yoruba and Irish roots, for the third part of Men Only: An informal History of the Male Nude, he journeys from South London to Nigeria and back again slowly uncovering pleasure as well as paradox. At the beginning and at the end of his exploration he comes face to face with the phallic, trickster god, Eshu - a being at work in traditional sculpture as well as in the photography of the Brixton-based Rotimi Fani-Kayode.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01bwb55)
Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry Becomes Director of the Royal College of Music

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

Parry had hit the big time! His Blest Pair of Sirens had proved to be popular, and a number of other choral commissions followed, including the chance to write an oratorio, Judith. Although rarely heard in its entirety today, many will recognise one of the tunes as the hymn Dear Lord and Father of Mankind. Other choral works followed, such as Job, although Parry detested the nation's lust for oratorios, and soon found himself pigeonholed in the category of an oratorio composer.

Other commissions came Parry's way though, such as composing incidental music for the stage. One such play was The Frogs, which caused wild uproar. Then followed another stage work, Hypatia, although the composing of this was at a time when Parry's health was not good. Parry had always suffered from poor health, and now his doctors were advising him regular trips abroad for peace and quiet, and time away from work. This was hard to achieve, as Parry had just been appointed Director of the Royal College of Music.

Along with this appointment at the RCM, and with his commissions increasing, Parry's status was now at an all time high. For the anniversary celebrations of the composer Purcell, Parry would compose one of his best choral works, Invocation to Music. Also at this time he'd write his only orchestral work to become popular abroad, the Symphonic Variations.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b026qhvb)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Honegger and Ibert - L'Aiglon

Jonathan Swain presents this week's Thursday Opera Matinee: L'Aiglon - 'The Young Eagle' - a little-known work which was a collaborative effort by two composers, both Arthur Honegger (who wrote Acts II, III, and IV) and Jacques Ibert (Acts I and V). The libretto by Henri Cain was based on Edmond Rostand's 1900 play about the life of Napoleon Bonaparte's son, the Duc de Reichstadt - known to Bonapartists as 'Napoleon II of France' and to almost everybody by the nickname L'Aiglon. The opera was first performed at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo in 1937.

After the opera, Afternoon on 3's celebration of the British symphony continues with a work by Robert Simpson. A conscientious objector, during World War II he studied composition with Herbert Howells whilst serving with a mobile surgical unit in the London Blitz. His Fifth Symphony was "dedicated in admiration" to the London Symphony Orchestra, who gave the premiere in 1973.

Sibelius: Symphony No. 7

Stephen Johnson scales the heights of Sibelius's seventh symphony, the culmination of the composer's creative journey as a symphonist. Moving away from the structure of his earlier symphonies, the seventh is cast in a single movement. Recognising the originality of this form, when Sibelius conducted the premiere of the symphony in 1924, he gave the symphony a name, "Fantasia sinfonica" rather than a number.

THU 22:00 Night Waves (b026rbj6)
The Ocean at the End of the Lane, Check Your Privilege, Visions of the Universe

Anne McElvoy talks to Neil Gaiman, prolific award-winning author of novels for adults and children alike and writer for radio and television - think Neverwhere and Dr Who. His new novel, The Ocean At The End Of The Lane, has more than a hint of autobiography. It's a tale for adults inspired by an event in his own childhood. Gaiman explains how the short story he started to write for his wife, the musician Amanda Palmer, became his first adult novel since 2005.

Also joining Anne in the Nightwaves studio, the historian, Selina Todd, writer and novelist Bidisha, and Telegraph columnist Tim Stanley to tiptoe round a current debate raging across social media. If you haven't heard the phrase, 'check your privilege' yet, you soon will because the debate has been hotting up. Is it possible to speak from a position of "privilege" about injustice or inequality or, indeed, anything beyond your own world? Or can language, imagination and empathy allow us to transcend our direct experience. There's been much discussion online about whether those offering opinions should first "check their privilege" as well as the ongoing debate about whether the educational background of our politicans limits their ability to understand the needs and concerns of the wider public.

And finally out beyond where the human eye can see, giant telescopes or not, are close to finishing a remarkable photographic inventory of the known Universe Cosmologist consultant, Marcus Chown, reports back from Visions of the Universe at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b01bzt3j)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Matthew Sweet

One of the weighty and apparently immovable pieces of our mental furniture is the notion that Queen Victoria was a prude. Another is that the Italian Renaissance was a sunny dream where man was always the unapologetic measure of all things. In the fourth part of Men Only: An informal History of the Male Nude, the author and broadcaster, Matthew Sweet, confounds both of these notions. He focusses on a cultural exchange between Queen Victoria and the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Leopold II as well as examining a sixteen inch fig leaf, penectomies and Crystal Palace. Stay tuned!

Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry Is Nearly Sunk by a Warship

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

During the last twenty years of Parry's life, although he was an important part of the British musical scene, knighted by Queen Victoria, and Director of the Royal College of Music, his own music would soon be forgotten and overshadowed by the works of his friend Elgar. Parry would still compose two scores, which would prove to be his most popular and enduring. Jerusalem, which is considered to be Britain's second national anthem, was composed for a war organisation during WWI. The second, his anthem I was Glad, was composed for the coronation of Edward VII, and has since been used at many royal occasions.

Parry's health was deteriorating greatly, and he had to start giving up various teaching and committee obligations. Throughout his career he had always continued to compose the odd work for organ, or set of songs based on English lyrics. There was an Indian summer for Parry when his works were briefly back in vogue, which saw the composition of his fifth symphony. However, with the outbreak of war, his health soon started to go downhill, as he was required to work more and more on his own estate in the chopping down of trees. This was a period when Parry would hear of the death of many of his students at the front, and suffer himself from depression. Parry died a month before the armistice, and at his funeral was performed one of his last composed works, his a cappella Songs of Farewell.
