SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b036hz8v)
Egypt

Suzy Klein travelled to Cairo to meet musicians and cultural activists, and find out how Egypt is forging a new cultural identity in 2013. Recorded in a climate of upheaval and protest that has resulted with the deposition of President Mohammed Morsi, Suzy hears how Egyptian cultural identity spans 7000 years of history and includes Pharaonic, Arabic, Coptic and Western Classical music, and that musicians today are taking to the street to defend this plurality of cultural expression.

In 1871 Giuseppe Verdi's grand opera Aida was given its world premiere at the newly built Cairo Opera House. In June 2013, on the stage of the new opera house, singers and musicians appeared in full dress once more for a performance of Aida, but this time holding protest placards against interference from the sixth culture minister to be appointed in two years. Suzy speaks to Nayer Nagui, conductor of the Cairo Opera Orchestra, and journalist Ati Metwaly and asks whether the protests within the arts mirror wider unrest across the country, and what role the arts have in protecting cultural diversity in a country of 80 million people. She also takes the artists' concerns to the now deposed Minister for Culture Alaa Abdel Aziz, and asks for a direct response to their allegations.

Cultural activist Basma El Husseiny, who runs Culture Resource, a non-governmental arts body, tells Suzy how the fine arts in Egypt have traditionally been associated with ruling elites and that as she takes music, theatre and dance out into deprived communities, the need for new modes of expression amongst the Egyptian people is stronger than ever.

One of the most significant religious minorities in Egypt today are the Coptic Christians. Founded in the 1st century AD, the Copts have preserved their music over 20 centuries as an oral tradition. Since the advent of recording technology the Insitute of Coptic Studies in Cairo has been working to catalogue and record this tradition, and now it has been digitised. Dr Michael Ghattas tells Suzy how the music of the Copts can be traced back to Pharaonic times, and why Egypt's Coptic community worry for their future in Egypt today.

With a tradition dating back to at least the 14th Century, the Egyptian oud is one of the lynchpins of Arabic classical music. In a suburban flat surrounded by 78rpm gramophone records, archivist and oud player Mustafa Said explains to Suzy how, since the 1950s Arabic classical music has looked to the West for ways to innovate and why he believes it is now crucial that musicians draw inspiration from the classical repertoire of an older era and use this music to find a new way to look forward.

Finally, in a small music studio in downtown Cairo, Suzy meets 22 year old composer Bahaa El Ansary, and musician and curator Mahmoud Refat. Refat's "100 Copies" label and venue has been a key player in the experimental music scene in Egypt over the last 10 years, and he talks frankly about how, since 2011, musicians in Egypt are pigeonholed as 'revolutionary' by Western media, to the detriment of the vibrant music scene that has long existed in Egypt.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b008xhwh)
A Day in the Life of Louis XIV

Lucie Skeaping recreates a possible day in the life of King Louis XIV. Upon waking in his sumptuous bedchamber, the king follows a busy schedule before entertaining guests at supper and retiring late in the evening. At every part of the day, musicians were on hand to entertain him, to soothe him or to trumpet his arrival. Olivier Baumont - harpsichordist and expert on French Baroque music - guides Lucie through the palace of Versailles to illustrate some of the music the king may have heard.


SAT 14:00 Saturday Classics (b036hzcr)
Roderick Williams

The singer Roderick Williams presents a very personal selection of his favourite classical music. Included in this autobiographical journey are works by Britten, Finzi, Puccini, Bach, Mahler, Webern and Spike Milligan.


SAT 16:00 Opera on 3 (b036hzct)
Wagner 200 - Rienzi

Wagner 200. John Shea presents the final Opera on 3 of the season, a BBC archive recording from 1976 of Wagner's third opera Rienzi, the Last of the Tribunes in the 1842 version with additional music orchestrated from sketches.

Rienzi is a grand opera in 5 acts owing a great deal to the examples of the genre by Meyerbeer and Halévy. The original performance material for Rienzi was destroyed during the Dresden bombings of 1945 as was the score which was apparently given to Hitler as a present and lost in the destruction of his bunker in Berlin. Consequently performances since then, which have been few and far between, have been reconstructions. In the mid 1970s Edward Downes and others worked on the most complete version ever heard which was later published in the Wagner Edition. Wagner scholar John Deathridge tells John Shea about the preparation of the material for this studio recording and there's also a Radio 3 Opera Guide about Rienzi which can be downloaded for free after the broadcast.

Rienzi is set in Rome in the middle ages and the central figure is Cola di Rienzi, who leads the populace against the power for the nobles.

Wagner based it on the novel by the English writer Henry Bulwer-Lytton published in 1835. He completed it in 1840 and it was first performed in Dresden in 1842 when despite its length it was a considerable success and led to Wagner becoming Kapellmeister at the Dresden Opera the following year. However because of its scale Wagner subsequently made cuts and throughout the 19th century it was often performed in Germany and other parts of Europe and even reached America. Wagner later disowned the work and like his two earlier operas it has never been staged at the Bayreuth Festival, the Wagner festival still run by his descendants.

SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b036hzcw)
A Song of Bricks and Mortar

Nina Perry's composed feature A Song of Bricks and Mortar explores composition, the creative process and the art of making. It takes its inspiration from this quote by Benjamin Britten:

"Composing is like driving down a foggy road toward a house. Slowly you see more details of the house - the colour of the slates and bricks, the shape of the windows. The notes are the bricks and the mortar of the house."

Via a compositional road trip, artists in the process of creating and making give insight into their own personal creative process, and what drives them to create. Like a play within a play or a documentary that documents itself - this feature dips its toe into the infinite and timeless nature of artistic creativity as an integral part of being human.

The fear of new beginnings, the pleasure of being in flow, moments of illumination, and of being lost; the artists' relationship with the environment and their own interior landscapes are revealed by Sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld, Art Student Imran Perretta, Composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad, Choreographer and Artistic Director of Rambert Dance Company, Mark Baldwin; and a group of people with Dementia and memory problems at a Creative Arts Session run by the Arts development company Verd de gris.

Their insights are woven together with a metaphorical motorbike journey performed by violinist Oli Langford and a soundscape of specially composed music.

First broadcast 06/07/2013.

Ruth Rogers

Ruth Rogers has become one of our most celebrated cooks and best-selling food writers since she and her friend the late Rose Gray opened a modest cafe in West London more than twenty five years ago. Their modest ambition was to make the River Cafe the best Italian restaurant in the world. Since then Ruth Rogers has been instrumental in changing the way we think about Italian food in Britain.

Ruth reveals how her musical passions bring together her love of Italy, food, family, and the human voice. Her choices of music include the joyous ode to wine from Don Giovanni; a contemporary opera chosen for her husband, the architect Richard Rogers; a moving piano tribute to her late son; and a Bob Dylan song which recalls the time, growing up in Woodstock, when she turned down his invitation to watch him rehearse.

SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b036j06y)
BBC NOW - Dvorak, Beethoven, Brahms

From Brangwyn Hall, Swansea

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Dvorak's Othello is the last of a set of three overtures that he entitled Nature, Life and Love. Though the composer clearly intended it to illustrate specific moments in the Shakespeare play from which it derives its name, in fact it is just as easy to hear as a piece of abstract music, the composer's ear for orchestral sonorities everywhere apparent.

The winner of the 2010 BBC Young Musician, pianist Lara Melda, joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Beethoven's dramatic C minor Concerto.

Brahms' final symphony caused him more than a little self-doubt, especially in the wake of the serene Third Symphony. His misgivings were to some extent borne out by the initial reaction, one commentator observing that it was akin to 'being thrashed by two terribly clever men'. This symphony broke the mould in many respects, not least in the way that the finale is based on the archaic form of the passacaglia, but it soon became a staple of the repertoire and today is regarded as among the greatest of Brahms's achievements.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b036j072)
Significant Others - Jewish Life in Poland

Episode 1

Writer Eva Hoffman examines the rich history and impact of a thousand years of Jewish presence in Poland and Polish attempts, since 1989, to re-connect to a people and history inextricable from their own. It is a story largely overshadowed by 6 years of annihilation on Polish soil by the occupying Nazis. Today we remember the loss. Poland as a graveyard.These two programmes explore vastly different worlds before and after destruction.

This spring an impressive new museum telling the history of Jewish presence in Poland opened in Warsaw, once home to the largest Jewish population in Europe, now home to a few thousand Jewish souls. Chmielnik is a small town a few hours drive from Krakow. Once its population was 85% Jewish, now there are no Jews left in this former shtetl. Yet this June an elaborately restored synagogue and interactive new museum of the shtetl was unveiled, but who is it for? Perhaps for Poles anxious to reclaim a Jewish history that they increasingly now see as their own? For Israeli and other Jewish tourists who consider Poland usually as the end point of Jewish life rather than a place that has shaped Ashenazi Jewish identity around the world.

This summer Krakow hosts its 23rd festival of Jewish culture festival in a city whose Jewish community numbers only in the 100's. Israeli funk bands, skateboarding Hassidic rabbis and workshops on anything from food to the most complex historical and religious issues run throughout. More people will attend than there are Polish Jews. The maxim now is' Small presence, big impact.
For post Communist Poland re-connecting with their Jewish story, their Significant Others, has become a multi layered and sometimes startling process of rediscovery.

The centuries that come before the 'wolfhound' 20th, are the story Eva Hoffman focuses on in the first programme. The rise of a Jewish civilization in the East that would go on to create a vast body of literature, culture and thought and whose fortunes were inextricably tied with the emerging story of Polish identity and nationhood.

Jewish settlement, usually at the invitation of Polish nobility, was crucial to developing the vast lands. This was no small community of persecuted migrants but a people as at home in the lands of what would become the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth as those of Polish, Ukrainian, Lithuanian and German origin. Here scholarship flourished in cities like Krakow whilst Jewish life flourished in 'shtetls', the unique phenomenon of almost entirely Jewish towns and villages later celebrated or denigrated in the great Yiddish literature of the late 19th and early 20th Century. All bound by faith, communal structures including the remarkable Council of the Four Lands and the transnational language of Yiddish.

By the middle of the 16th century, about 80% of world Jewry lived on Polish lands. During this 'Golden Age', the word "Polin" - the Jewish name for Poland - could be interpreted to mean "Here though shall rest in exile" - in other words, that Poland was a second promised land. But for how long?

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01cvp2v)
Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805)

Boccherini's Early Life

He could number among his patrons the King of Spain, and the heir to the Prussian Throne, and he composed around one hundred string quartets, and at least as many quintets, amongst other works - this week Donald Macleod looks at the life and music of Luigi Boccherini. Although Boccherini was originally born in the Tuscan city of Lucca, he spent the majority of his life as a working musician in Spain, after a brief spell in Paris. His extensive output is largely now forgotten, but one work in particular, the Minuet from his fifth String Quartet opus 11, is one of the most used entry points by film and TV producers today, creating a sense of eighteenth century elegance and period. Boccherini is also credited with forming the first ever string quartet, yet despite his popularity during much of his lifetime, Boccherini lived at the end of his life in virtual poverty, seeing his wife and daughters die one after another, before his own death possibly from tuberculosis.

Luigi Boccherini came from a humble background, with his father performing as a double bassist in their home city of Lucca. Luigi quickly made a name for himself not only as a cellist, but also as a composer for the cello, including works such as his sixth Cello Sonata, in C major. The young Luigi was soon sent off to Rome for further musical training, where he came into contact with much of the sacred choral music taking place there. Boccherini would go on to compose many sacred choral works of his own, such as the Kyrie in B flat, from his own setting of the Mass.

Boccherini junior was now making quite a name for himself as a virtuoso player of the cello, and along with his father, embarked on a tour performing in Venice, Trieste and Vienna. By the time of their second engagement in Vienna, Boccherini was composing and publishing his first significant works, which caused quite a stir. His first set of trios made a huge impression on the older composer Gluck. His published opus 2 quartets also had a huge impact, including the fifth String Quartet in E major.

His output has been curtailed in recent years due to serious illness but he has just published a new translation of Dante's Divine Comedy, something he has wanted to accomplish since first reading the epic poem as a student in 1964. He explains why this project was so important and what he's learnt through being forced to stop and reflect on his life.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01bsbyz)
On Directing

Roger Michell

In the first essay of the series, Roger Michell reflects on the mix of emotion he feels on the first day of any production, and beckons us to follow as he travels to the location of his 2012 film Hyde Park on Hudson.

A James Cameron film. A Rupert Goold production. The director has become an acclaimed and authoritative figure - even a star in his own right - but the job itself remains the subject of speculation: what does a director actually do? And what is the mysterious 'process' that sees them from idea to first night? In this Essay series, five innovative practitioners of stage and screen reveal the daily grind of a craft which, despite books and interviews on the subject, remains opaque.

Roger Michell's career has spanned theatre, television and film. Earlier in his career, he worked at the Royal Court and the RSC, where he eventually became a resident director. He continues to divide his time between theatre and film, and recent stage productions include Rope (The Almeida) and Tribes (Royal Court). For BBC television he directed The Buddha of Suburbia (1993) and Persuasian (1995). Some of his films include Notting Hill (1999), Changing Lanes (2002), The Mother (2003), Enduring Love (2004), Venus (2006) and Morning Glory (2010), as well as Hyde Park on Hudson (2012).

The series is produced by Sasha Yevtushenko.

First broadcast in February 2012.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01ppwxk)
Anthony Braxton's Falling River Music

Prolific composer and multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxton performs with his Falling River Music quartet, at a 400-year-old former pig barn in Austria!
Braxton - a pioneer of avant-garde and improvised music - is well known for challenging traditional compositional methods with approaches such as graphic scores and instructions left open to the performers' interpretation. Falling River Music is the composer's latest system, and Braxton - performing on alto and soprano saxophones - is joined by three stars from the younger generation of New York's experimental scene: cornettist Taylor Ho Bynum, saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock and guitarist Mary Halvorson. Jazz on 3 trekked all the way to the tiny Austrian town of Ulrichsberg to record a stunning gig, in addition to which Braxton and his group explain the visual references and directions they use to create the music.

First broadcast in January 2013

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Phil Smith.

Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805)

Boccherini is Successful in Paris

He could number among his patrons the King of Spain, and the heir to the Prussian throne, and he composed around one hundred string quartets, and at least as many quintets, amongst other works - this week Donald Macleod looks at the life and music of Luigi Boccherini.

Boccherini on tour with his father in Vienna, was soon longing to return for his native city of Lucca. However upon their return, Luigi was soon disillusioned and wished to leave again, wanting to pursue his musical career elsewhere. Still keeping his contractual ties with Lucca, Boccherini toured Pavia and Cremona with his father. It was around this time that he composed his successful opus two set of quartets, including the second String Quartet in B flat major.

Back in Lucca, Boccherini had certain obligations to the city fathers there, and was commissioned to compose for various civic occasions, along with his contractual arrangements to regularly perform. One work Boccherini composed during this period, which may have been commissioned by his city employers, was his oratorio Gioas, or King of Judah.

Soon afterwards, Boccherini's father died. Young Luigi accompanied by his friend Manfredi, was able to spread his wings without his family in tow, and they made their way to Paris. This was good timing, as some of Boccherini's works had just been published there. It was during this period in Paris when Boccherini relied upon the patronage of Baron de Bagge, that through this aristocrats music library, Boccherini was likely to have come into contact with the ideas of orchestral woodwind writing. We can hear Boccherini's own writing for orchestra, including woodwind instruments in his Symphony opus 7 in C major.

The second half begins with Liszt's Vallée d'Obermann from his Années de pèlerinage (Years of pilgrimage) 1st year, Switzerland, and one of Heinz Holliger's best-known piano works "Elis". The concert ends with one of the great tours-de-force of 20th century piano music - Ravel's incredible "Gaspard de la nuit".


TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b036s1c0)
Egypt's democracy, Diana Quick, Laura Knight, Technology & Cities

The situation in Egypt is developing quickly. But as the army deposes an elected president, seemingly in support of popular protestors in the streets, it's difficult to see where the sympathies of democrats should lie. Philip is joined by the historian Tom Holland and the political scientist Salwa Ismail to try to make sense of the revolution unfolding in front of us.

Actress Diana Quick reflects on playing Eva, a charming but controlling German-Jewish émigré in Richard Greenberg's play The American Plan, and discusses the way she's perceived and the type of roles she gets offered since coming to fame as Lady Julia Flyte in Brideshead Revisited back in 1981.

Laura Knight was one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century and the first woman to be elected to the Royal Academy. Best known for her work during the Second World War as well as her series of paintings at the ballet and the circus, she resolutely rejected modernism. There's been a revival of interest in her work recently and the National Portrait Gallery is mounting an exhibition of her work. James Malpas joins Philip to review it.

More than half of the world's population now live in cities and the percentage will continue to rise. As architects and planners attempt to cater for ever-growing urban populations, the challenge is to create environments that offer the rich and varied experience of our best loved cities. To discuss how to make our evolving cities more habitable, Philip is joined by Richard Sennett, Professor of Sociology at LSE, Amanda Levete, founder of ALA Architects and Gerard Evenden, Senior Partner at Foster and Partners.

Produced by Luke Mulhall.

Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805)

Boccherini Finds a Princely Patron in Spain

He could number among his patrons the King of Spain, and the heir to the Prussian throne, and he composed around one hundred string quartets, and at least as many quintets, amongst other works - this week Donald Macleod looks at the life and music of Luigi Boccherini.

Whilst in Paris, Boccherini was approached by the Spanish Ambassador, who proposed that Boccherini and his friend the violinist Manfredi, might like to visit Madrid, and that the two young men would receive a rapturous welcome from the heir to the Spanish throne. Both Boccherini and Manfredi travelled to Spain, but their welcome was not what they had hoped it would be. In a bid to ingratiate himself with the Spanish Prince, Boccherini dedicated his Opus 6 trios to him, including the fifth Trio in G minor. This didn't get the Prince's attention.

Another Royal patron did however materialise, and this was the King's brother, Don Luis, whom Boccherini would go on to work for, for many years. Boccherini would compose many works dedicated to his royal patron, including sextets, quintets, and a set of symphonies, which included the third Symphony in C major opus 12. These works steadily began to establish Boccherini's reputation in Spain and further afield, in particular his set of quintets opus 11. The sixth of this set, nicknamed The Aviary, depicts Boccherini's patron's passion for exotic birds.

Don Luis would soon fall out of favour with his family and the royal court, over his marriage to a lady of non-royal blood. This soon meant that Don Luis's court would have to move far from Madrid. This isolation would influence the works Boccherini went on to compose, given the limited number of musicians to hand. However, with a visit to Arenas of a famous singer, Boccherini was able compose his first setting of the Stabat Mater.

Free Thinking in Summer 2013

York Festival of Ideas

BBC Radio 3's annual Free Thinking festival of ideas continues its summer tour as it takes up residency at leading summer events across the country.

Rana Mitter chairs a debate from the York Festival of Ideas on whether we can afford ethical business.

As austerity bites into family finances and public services, cheap goods seem ever more attractive, even vital. But is there a price to pay in fairness, and to the environment? York has a long history of making ethical business ideals a reality, but can those ideas be carried forward into the era of austerity?

The panel includes The Guardian's Lucy Siegle, Adrian Wooldridge of The Economist, founder of Ethical Superstore Andy Redfern and economist Virginie Perotin.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Rana Mitter and was recorded earlier this month at the York Festival of Ideas as part of BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking in the Summer

Free Thinking is visiting four festivals throughout the summer including HowTheLightGetsIn at Hay, the Institut Français Philosophy Night in London, York Festival of Ideas and the Chalke Valley History Festival in Wiltshire. These events are being broadcast in July and lead the way towards Free Thinking's annual weekend of debate at the Sage, Gateshead in October 2013.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01cwq76)
Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805)

Boccherini is Desperate to Find a New Patron

He could number among his patrons the King of Spain, and the heir to the Prussian throne, and he composed around one hundred string quartets, and at least as many quintets, amongst other works - this week Donald Macleod looks at the life and music of Luigi Boccherini.

Around 1773, a talented flute player seems to have joined the staff of the Spanish Infante, Don Luis. This allowed Boccherini greater scope for composing new works, including the first Flute Quintet in E flat major, from Boccherini's opus 19 set. However with Don Luis and his court banished to Arenas, Boccherini was finding opportunities to compose quite limited.

Around a decade later, the Ambassador to Prussia visited the Spanish Court in Madrid, where he was honoured by a performance of six of Boccherini's string quartets. The Ambassador sent a copy of the music to Frederick the Great's nephew, Frederick William, who soon sent the composer a gold box containing a letter saying how much he had enjoyed his music. One of the quartets the Ambassador might have heard, was the sixth String Quartet in A major, from the opus 32 set.

In the 1780's Boccherini suffered a double blow with not only the death of his wife, but also the death of his patron Don Luis. King Carlos III granted Boccherini an annual pension, and also a place in the instrumental Royal Chapel in Madrid, although he was excused from fulfilling his duties due to his frequent spittings of blood. The following year Boccherini received an honorary appointment with the Crown Prince of Prussia, and in return the composer sent a number of works every year, possibly including a set of concert arias, such as Misera, dove son!

It's a would-be tale of blood and thunder in sixteenth-century Peru, with the Incas fighting against Spanish imperial domination - but surprisingly, both sides keep releasing rather than killing each other. Maybe that's why it's never been popular... The Inca princess Alzira is caught at the centre of the conflict, as the Inca leader Zamoro (whom she loves) fights the Spanish Governor Gusmano (whom she doesn't) for her favours. Who will she end up with? Tune in at 2 o'clock to find out.

Plus, after the opera, Louise Fryer presents a Sibelius Symphony performed by this week's featured performers: Simon Rattle and the orchestra of which he's Chief Conductor, the Berlin Philharmonic.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b01bwbfp)
On Directing

Josie Rourke

Josie Rourke, the Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, reminds us that working in theatre isn't always plain sailing. In her essay, she looks at what happens when disaster strikes and things go wrong. It's in these situations that a director is truly tested.

Josie Rourke trained with directors Peter Gill, Michael Grandage, Nicholas Hytner, Phyllida Lloyd and Sam Mendes. Before coming to the Bush she worked for five years as a freelance director and was the Associate Director of Sheffield Theatres and Trainee Associate Director at the Royal Court. At the Royal Court she directed Loyal Women by Gary Mitchell. She was the tour director of The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. For the Royal Shakespeare Company she directed Believe What You Will and King John.

Rourke was the Artistic Director of the Bush Theatre between 2007 and 2011, where she also directed many of its hits including Nick Payne's If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet. In 2011, Rourke directed a production of Much Ado About Nothing at Wyndham's Theatre, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate. She became Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse in January 2012 and her first production as director was George Farquhar's The Recruiting Officer.

The series is produced by Sasha Yevtushenko.

First broadccast in February 2012.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01cwq8w)
Luigi Boccherini (1743-1805)

Boccherini Falls Into Poverty

He could number among his patrons the King of Spain, and the heir to the Prussian throne, and he composed around one hundred string quartets, and at least as many quintets, amongst other works - this week Donald Macleod looks at the life and music of Luigi Boccherini.

Boccherini towards the end of his life, now found himself in quite a predicament. King Carlos III of Spain had now died, and his son, the new King Carlos IV, was less disposed towards Boccherini due to an earlier disagreement. Boccherini had to look for patronage elsewhere, and was subsequently forced to sell a number of his works to the Parisian publishing house Pleyel, for not much money. However, commissions still did occasionally come in, such as from the Marquis of Benavente, who wanted Boccherini to arrange a number of his already composed works to include guitar. One such work, which also included castanets, was the Guitar Quintet in B flat major.

Towards the end of Boccherini's life, with his Benavente patrons having left for Vienna, and the composer being forced to sell more of his works for little money to his Parisian publisher, Boccherini started to turn more towards choral writing, such as the responsory Domine ad adjuvandum. Other patrons were to come and ago, including Lucien Bonaparte, who commissioned Boccherini to compose a number of works. The opus 57 piano quintets, Boccherini dedicated to the French nation.

In 1805 Boccherini died, probably due to the tuberculosis which had troubled him for most of his life. He was buried in Madrid, but later in 1927 his remains were taken back to his birthplace of Lucca for reburial. Just before he died, he was working on one last String Quartet, in D major, of which only one movement now survives in full.

FRI 20:30 Twenty Minutes (b036v857)
The Trials of the Chorus Master

This Prom has five different choruses, which is pretty remarkable even for the Proms.
In this interval feature we gather together three of the chorus masters of tonight's concert to talk about the art of the chorus master.

This is a job which requires going along to many rehearsals on wet Tuesday nights and putting up with some terrible attendances and unmusical politics. Then, after all the hard work, when the choir is drilled to perfection, in comes the star conductor and takes the glory. Is it tricky? We ask them.

Producer Geoff Ballinger.
