Come Heavy Sleep

Tom Mckinney meets guitarist Julian Bream on the eve of his 80th birthday to discuss his career and a defining composition by Benjamin Britten that helped to elevate him and his instrument onto the global stage.

Julian Bream is arguably the most important guitarist of the second half of the twentieth century: pioneer of the burgeoning period instrument movement and champion of new repertoire for the guitar. The archetypal eccentric Englishman with a huge personality and incredible musical ability, Bream had a massive impact on the global musical scene from the 1960s, becoming a genuine a household name with appearances on prime-time television and platinum record sales.

His performances at the Aldeburgh Festival in the 50s, especially his recitals of Elizabethan songs with Benjamin Britten's partner the tenor Peter Pears, eventually led to Britten writing what is perhaps the guitar's finest work - the Nocturnal after John Dowland, an unsettling and often disturbing set of variations based on the song Come Heavy Sleep by John Dowland. It was a landmark moment: that a composer of Britten's stature should write such a substantial and significant piece of music for the guitar, changed at once the perception of the instrument and its subsequent repertoire. At that time the guitar was still a minority instrument, inseparably linked to its Spanish heritage. Bream pounced on the opportunity to play Nocturnal worldwide, almost utilising it as a bargaining chip to coax many other major composers into write for guitar, such as Walton, Tippett, Henze, Takemitsu and Maxwell Davies.

With contributions from guitarist Craig Ogden, Britten expert Mervyn Cooke and Bream biographer Tony Palmer, we will hear about the legacy of the Nocturnal and of Julian Bream's remarkable contribution to the guitar's history.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b036ts1y)
York Early Music Festival 2013

York Early Music Festival: Musica Antiqua Roma 'Approaching Corelli'

Catherine Bott introduces highlights from a concert given by Musica Antiqua Roma at the 2013 York Early Music Festival.

The theme of this year's York Early Music Festival is "Rome - The Eternal City". Arcangelo Corelli is a crucial figure in Rome's musical history, seen in his day - the 18th Century - as the 'Orpheus of our age'. His instrumental chamber works and concertos were ground breaking. Yet this music, which played a major part in defining the musical language of the 18th century, did not spring from nowhere. In this concert Riccardo Minasi and his ensemble, Musica Antiqua Roma consider music that formed the background to Corelli's achievements, performing works by some of his brilliant but less well-known Roman predecessors and contemporaries.


SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b036j24r)
Wigmore Hall: Tai Murray

Two former Radio 3 New Generation Artists, violinist Tai Murray and pianist Ashley Wass join forces for a programme live from Wigmore Hall in London. Szymanowski's colourful and expressive Myths are followed by Schumann's passionate Second Violin Sonata.

SAT 15:00 Saturday Classics (b0379msp)
Brahms Debussy and Tchaikovsky appear in Richard Sisson's celebration of summer

With what optimism did the BBC invite composer Richard Sisson to present a selection of music for the Spring; sadly, however, the fluttering blossom of that season appears to have withered on his bough, so to speak. Forced to embark on a serious bit of professional diversification, he has nevertheless been invited to return with a Summer selection which will be broadcast from his ice-cream van in a loading bay just round the corner from the BBC. Amongst the cornets and wafers expect Janacek, Brahms, Legrand, Getz and possibly hundreds and thousands...

First broadcast in July 2013.


SAT 17:00 Jazz Record Requests (b036ts76)
Alyn Shipton's selection of music suggested by listeners includes music on unusual instruments, including pieces by baritone saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and harpist David Snell.


SAT 18:00 Words and Music (b017lz5j)
A Great Exhibition

This Words and Music is a celebration of The Great Exhibition 1851. The backbone of the programme is made up from descriptions of the rooms by Robert Hunt in his Companion to the Official Catalogue.

Scott Handy and Catherine Harvey read extracts from Robert Hunt together with poetry inspired by the exhibits on show. The display of locomotives in the Central Avenue, for example, leads here to William Carlos Williams' 'Overture to a Dance of Locomotives'. Similarly, China was represented by a model of a joss-house, which is depicted in the programme by Wang Wei's 'Toward the Temple of Heaped Fragrance' and Wordsworth's 'In My Mind's Eye a Temple, like a Cloud'.

The music includes Thomas Morley's 'Hard by a Crystal Fountain', Mosolov's 'Iron Foundry' and Bartok's 'Mikrokosmos'.

SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b01nznsd)
Belongings

Decisions about what possessions to keep and what to throw away can be agonising, raising fundamental questions about their true value. In Belongings we follow three people over six months as they make some painful decisions, move house and start again somewhere smaller. The outcomes are often unexpected.

Mike and Sue need to find a bungalow so Mike, who recently had a stroke, doesn't have to cope with stairs. The belongings he desperately wants to keep, although perhaps now unnecessary, symbolise both his past fitness and his potential future happiness.

Nina is moving to a retirement flat and prides herself on a life free of attachment to material things, but over the years she has amassed a fascinating collection of possessions that hold powerful memories for her.

Patricia was a successful soprano, and now in her 80s has many boxes full of treasures from her career. She finds it hard to throw things away, they are as she says: "my life".

For many people possessions are just "stuff". The stories of Pat, Mike and Nina are interspersed with those for whom the disposal and moving of belongings is how they make their living. We hear the detached comments of auctioneers, removal men and estate agents. The intention of Belongings is to make the listener lose themselves in the lives of the downsizers, but also to make them think "what do I value most?".

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b036v4p8)
Robert Macfarlane

Robert Macfarlane is a writer and scholar who has spent years exploring the wild spaces of the world. In this location edition of Private Passions, he takes Michael Berkeley to an uninhabited island off the coast of Suffolk, Orfordness. It was a place used for military testing right up to the 1950s, and it's littered with abandoned rusty machinery and ruined observation towers; the wind scrapes across the debris and makes a kind of unearthly music. It's the perfect setting, then, to listen to music about wild spaces and bird calls: Mussorgsky's Night on a Bare Mountain and Messiaen's Abime des Oiseaux among them. Robert Macfarlane talks about feeling that he is walking with ghosts, particularly the ghost of poet Edward Thomas who died in the First World War. He introduces the music that Thomas listened to at the Front, Chopin's Berceuse (or Lullaby). The programme also includes a rare recording made in the 1950s on a rock far out into the Atlantic, of a group of Hebridean islanders singing psalms. Macfarlane is a Cambridge scholar and award-winning writer, as well as a climber, walker, and wild swimmer. He is extraordinarily eloquent when he introduces this atmospheric selection of music.

First broadcast in July 2013.

York Early Music Festival: La Risonanza - 'Voicing Corelli'

Catherine Bott introduces highlights from a concert given by La Risonanza and Fabio Bonizzoni at the 2013 York Early Music Festival.

The theme of this year's York Early Music Festival is "Rome - The Eternal City". In the second of this weekend's programmes inspired by Corelli we look at vocal music by the composer - even though Corelli never left us with any music composed for voices! Corelli was known and much admired throughout Europe, but his published output was small, and restricted entirely to instrumental music. That nothing existed for voices was particularly frustrating for publishers - so a solution was sought. Fabio Bonizzoni's award-winning ensemble La Risonanza have created a unique programme of vocal duets on sacred texts ingeniously adapted from Corelli's trio sonatas by his contemporary admirer Antonio Tonelli.


SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b036v4pd)
BBC Symphony Orchestra - Ravel, Poulenc

Ravel's fantastical opera L'enfant et les sortileges and Poulenc's suite from his ballet Les animaux modèles, featuring comic actor Stephen Mangan with the BBC SO conducted by Stéphane Denève.

From the Barbican Centre, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Poulenc: Les animaux modèles - suite
Ravel: L'enfant et les sortilèges

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Stephen Mangan (actor)
Singers from the Royal Academy of Music
Stéphane Denève (conductor)

The creatures populating Francis Poulenc's charming musical bestiary Les animaux modèles are based on figures from the fables of Jean de la Fontaine and in this performance of the suite made by the composer from his ballet, the popular comic actor Stephen Mangan reads these witty morality tales in between the movements of the suite. The BBC Symphony Orchestra then crown their recent series of operas with Ravel's fantastical opera L'enfant et les sortilèges, featuring talented young singers from the Royal Academy of Music. In a score teeming with invention, Ravel tells the magical story of a young boy driven to cruelty by boredom, who provokes the animals and objects around him to spring to life and conspire against him in a phantasmagorical parade. The charismatic French conductor Stéphane Denève is the zookeeper-in-chief, marshalling the forces of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b036v4pk)
Suburbs

Emily Joyce and Philip Franks take a literary walk through the suburbs, to music by JS Bach, Philip Glass, Kaikhosru Sorabji and others.

Suburbs sprung up in the 19th century along the rail routes that led out of rapidly growing cities like London and the major industrial centres. Suburbs now cover large swathes of our post-industrial landscape and have led to a particular culture which has evolved from the daily commute to work.

This edition of Words and Music wanders through suburbs, from those dark industrial places of Dickens's times to the uniform towns experienced by Hanif Kureishi and Adrian Henri. Suburbs provide a peaceful haven at the end of the working day, a near-rural setting, a nice place in which to grow up, in which to learn certain morals, but also a place of ennui, monotony and rebellion. The programme includes texts from Dickens's Old Curiosity Shop, Hanif Kureishi's Buddha of Suburbia, and poems by John Betjeman, DH Lawrence, William Cowper, Emerson, Tennyson, Arthur Guiterman, Gwen Harwood, Aesop, Margaret Atwood, Hardy, Kipling, TS Eliot, John Davidson, EE Cummings and Adrian Henri.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b036v4pm)
Significant Others - Jewish Life in Poland

Episode 2

Writer Eva Hoffman examines the traumatic contradictions and perplexity of the Jewish Polish experience of the 20th Century and the unexpected return of history and memory in the 21st. The 20th Century offered hard challenges for Jewish Poles. Which language to speak? Yiddish or Polish? Which faith to follow? The new politics of Zionism and perhaps emigration? The defiant Yiddish voice of the Socialist Bund? The creed of Communism or the continual values of the Shtetl, the devotion of Hasidism, the perpetual study of the Torah?

Yiddish writing peaked with the work of I.L.Peretz, I.J. Singer and Sholem Asch. Warsaw sounded to the hot jazz licks of Addy Rosner and the dance tunes of Henryk Gold. Julian Tuwim, writing in Polish, stunned all with his poetry and yet was always aware of the contradictions of Jewish identity in the new century.

Despite the rise of Fascism on its borders and the increasingly shrill nationalism at home, this land was still the least worst place to be in Central Europe. Until September 1st 1939. By 1945 the Nazis had done their best to destroy the idea of Poland, as had the Soviets. Both had killed its intelligentsia. The Germans had enslaved, starved and slaughtered millions and gathered the Jews of Europe, the majority of whom resided in Poland, to be murdered on its soil. By 1947, after sporadic pogroms, what had been Europe's largest Jewish community was now just 100,000. What could its future be? The cruelties of the Cold War largely decided its fate. Emigration to Israel and elsewhere increased under the assault of official anti-semitic persecution, culminating in mass expulsions in 1968. Jewish identity was buried, whispered among families. A thousand years of Polish Jewish presence seemed finally at an end.

The decades since 1989 have been bewildering and unexpected. The vast new Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw opened this spring. It is the boldest statement yet that the history and memory of its Signifcant Others has returned for many in Poland. Elsewhere, Cracow's Jewish Festival is in its 23rd year. Although there are more Polish migrants in London than there are Jews in the whole of Poland, fledgling Jewish communities in cities like Warsaw and Cracow now seem at least viable. Perhaps Poland's most Significant Others have truly returned to history and to a land that has helped shape the world.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01ngp50)
Rachmaninov and Medtner (1873-1943 and 1880-1951)

Episode 1

They were two of the great Russian pianist-composers of their time, yet apparently poles apart in temperament and philosophy. Or were they? As part of the BBC's Piano Season, Donald Macleod hunts out the countless intersections of their lives as they both forge their careers in the face of revolution, war and cultural exile.

It's hardly surprising that the two are remembered so differently. Whereas Rachmaninov saw out his last years in luxury, expensive cars parked outside his Beverly Hills mansion, Medtner ended his days in a non-descript semi in North London. Rachmaninov had been a musical entrepreneur, willing to follow the market, whereas Medtner had a reputation for intellectualism and stubbornness. Only Medtner would have put his musical philosophy into book form, and yet 'The Muse and the Fashion' was so impenetrable that it instantly disappeared into publishing oblivion.

But on countless occasions the musicians' careers brought them together. Rachmaninov's help and advice proved invaluable as Medtner built his early career as both pianist and composer, and the pair later formed a united front against what they saw as the destruction of Russian music. And with Rachmaninov's guidance, the anxious Medtner, who didn't speak a word of English, was able to build a lucrative concert career in Europe and the US.

During the week, we hear the two concertos which the composers dedicated to each other, and also some of the recordings which they left of their own playing, including previously unbroadcast piano roll transcriptions. And to begin, Donald Macleod pinpoints the composers' early encounters, both of them graduating from the Moscow Conservatoire. But whereas Rachmaninov leaves as a confident young artist, Medtner suffers a near-disastrous early blow to his confidence.

Written over the summers of 1901 and 1902, Mahler's Fifth remains one of the best-loved symphonies in the repertory, its famous Adagietto a love-letter to his wife, Alma. Before it, the brilliantly virtuosic Arditti Quartet joins the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for Helmut Lachenmann's Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied, an abrasive, unsettling example of the composer's 'musique concrète instrumentale', whose metallic timbres and subtle textures promise to transfix and enthrall.

Mahler in Words

Mahler in Words: conductor, rock star and blogger Kenneth Woods introduces a selection of readings about Gustav Mahler and discusses how the composer's intense relationship with Alma fed into the writing of his Fifth Symphony. Woods argues that the tempestuous monster of popular myth is not an accurate depiction of Mahler and there is a chance to hear rare audio of an orchestral player who actually worked under him.

Rana Mitter presents. The reader is Nicholas Boulton.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music as the first of this year's Literary Proms Plus events.

TUE 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01hq2bb)
Arnold Wesker

Another chance to hear the playwright Arnold Wesker, who died in April of this year, on the eve of his 80th birthday, looking back at his life and career with Matthew Sweet. Matthew also talks to the theatre critic Michael Billington, Margaret Drabble, the actress Nichola McAuliffe and to the director Dominic Cooke.

The author of 42 plays enjoyed a revival of his work in recent years with productions of 'The Kitchen' and 'Chicken Soup with Barley' but for many years he felt himself to be neglected by the British theatrical establishment. His plays were performed around the world and translated into seventeen languages but were rarely seen in his own country. In 1976 'Shylock', his reworking of 'The Merchant of Venice' closed on Broadway before the opening night when its star, Zero Mostel, died suddenly. And four years earlier, in 1972, Wesker sued the RSC for refusing to stage 'The Journalists', a play they had commissioned and which Wesker had researched at the Sunday Times. For the first time the RSC opened their archives to allow Matthew Sweet to discover what was happening in the company at the time and why the actors refused to perform the play.

Poles in Britain

Polish is the third most spoken language in the UK, after English and Welsh, and the 2011 census found over half a million Poles living in Britain. But you don't need to speak Polish in order to embrace Polish culture, thanks to a current boom in translating Polish novels into English. Rana Mitter asks the Polish-born writers Eva Hoffman and A.M. Bakalar to provide a guide to the most exciting writing coming out of Poland today.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Royal College of Music as part of this year's Proms Plus events.

WED 22:15 Sunday Feature (b01jxs5y)
Edward James and the Surreal Garden

On the outer edge of a remote mountain town in Mexico lies one of the largest and least known artistic monuments of the twentieth century: an inexplicably strange garden (Las Pozas) that, in terms of incongruity, ranks alongside The Watts Towers in Los Angeles and the Palais Ideal created by the Facteur Cheval in France.

Edward James was the unconventional character responsible for creating it, with his friend Plutarco Gastelum. Edward was a poet, better known for funding the early career of Salvador Dali - he co-designed the lobster telephone and the Mae West lips sofa - and for the surreal style of his Sussex home, Monkton House..

Journalist Joanna Moorhead discovers the bizarre sequence of events that led to the creation of Las Pozas and its struggle for survival since Edward's death in 1984. Made possible by Edward's wealth, Mexico's climate, the country's unique construction skills and a strong bond between Edward and a Mexican family, is it a valuable piece of Mexican heritage? Mere whimsy? Or a surreal tribute to the great gardens of England? In a country acclaimed for its ancient archaeological sites, and against the backdrop of a worsening security situation, what are the difficulties of preserving Las Pozas? And is it really one of the foremost concrete artworks in the world?

With artists Pedro Friedeberg and Melanie Smith, filmmaker Rafael Ortega, surrealism expert Dawn Ades and architect Matthew Holmes, who is leading the conservation of Las Pozas.

Producer: Tamsin Hughes

First broadcast in June 2012.

Mahler: Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor
Bamberg Symphony Orchestra
Jonathan Nott (conductor)

Written over the summers of 1901 and 1902, Mahler's Fifth remains one of the best-loved symphonies in the repertory, its famous Adagietto a love-letter to his wife, Alma. Before it, the brilliantly virtuosic Arditti Quartet joined the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra for Helmut Lachenmann's Tanzsuite mit Deutschlandlied, an abrasive, unsettling example of the composer's 'musique concrète instrumentale', whose metallic timbres and subtle textures promise to transfix and enthrall.

Evocations of Nordic forests, Persian gardens and snow-capped mountains feature in Thomas Søndergård's first Prom as Principal Conductor of the BBC NOW. Stenhammar's joyful Excelsior! is an upbeat to the opulent, exotic sound-world of Szymanowski's Symphony No. 3, 'The Song of the Night'. And Strauss's epic Alpine Symphony is as much a statement of the composer's personal philosophy as a description of the natural world at its most dramatic.

This Prom will be repeated on Monday 22nd July at 2pm.

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Thomas Søndergård live at the BBC Proms with three of the most colourful orchestral scores in the repertory.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Stenhammar: Excelsior!
Szymanowski: Symphony No. 3, 'The Song of the Night'

7.50pm Interval

8.10pm
R Strauss: An Alpine Symphony

Michael Weinius (tenor)
BBC National Chorus of Wales
BBC Symphony Chorus
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Søndergård (conductor)

Evocations of Nordic forests, Persian gardens and snow-capped mountains feature in Thomas Søndergård's first Prom as Principal Conductor of the BBC NOW. Stenhammar's joyful Excelsior! is an upbeat to the opulent, exotic sound-world of Szymanowski's Symphony No. 3, 'The Song of the Night'. And Strauss's epic Alpine Symphony is as much a statement of the composer's personal philosophy as a description of the natural world at its most dramatic.

This Prom will be repeated on Monday 22nd July at 2pm.


THU 21:15 Sunday Feature (b01k9t7k)
The Other Dickens

Radio 3 'New Generation Thinker' Laurence Scott tells the story of Victorian 'bad-boy' writer of penny-dreadful novels George WM Reynolds, whose books sold in their hundreds of thousands, and who was a contemporary of Charles Dickens and prolific exponent of 'urban Gothic'.

"An indescribable sensation of fear crept over him; and the perspiration broke out upon his forehead in large drops... He was alone - in an uninhabited house, in the midst of a horrible neighbourhood; and all the fearful tales of midnight murders which he had ever heard or read, rushed to his memory..."

Reynolds's gruesome depictions of the London poor of the 1830s and '40s led to contention over whether his work highlighted their plight or exploited the public's appetite for romanticised portrayals of squalor. Karl Marx thought that Reynolds was a 'scoundrel', yet on his death in 1879 Reynolds was described in The Bookseller as 'the most popular writer of our time'.

Like Dickens, Reynolds was inspired by both London and Paris, and the circulation of ideas between the two capitals. Reynolds was a naturalised French citizen, lived there in the 1830s, married, had a child there, was bankrupted and, in July 1830 witnessed three glorious days of revolution.

Reynolds's stories were sexually scandalous, he was known as a 'red republican', and one modern scholar remarked that 'No other novelist, not even Dickens, gives as good a picture of some aspects of London life in the 'forties and 'fifties.'

THU 22:45 The Essay (b01mss9v)
The Piano in Five Pieces

Stuart Isacoff

Pianist and writer Stuart Isacoff explores how the piano's "four sounds" - melody, rhythm, harmonic chemistry - and its vast dynamic range, have shaped the music over the past 250 years. He mixes the Baroque with the Rock n Roll, comparing Beethoven with Jerry Lee Lewis and Debussy with Jazz pianist Bill Evans, to reveal how piano music transcends traditional chronological categories.

FRI 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01jg8nk)
Suspended in Air

"Were I to choose an auspicious image for the new millennium, I would choose [...] the sudden agile leap of the poet-philosopher who raises himself above the weight of the world, showing that with all his gravity he has the secret of lightness, and that what many consider to be the vitality of the times - noisy, aggressive, revving and roaring - belongs to the realm of death, like a cemetery for rusty old cars." - Italo Calvino

The neuroscientist and writer David Eagleman explores the invention, fantasy and flights of the imagination taken by one of Italy's foremost writers - Italo Calvino.

One of the 20th Century's great experimenters, Calvino consistently pushed the boundaries of literary form. Perhaps most famously in his novel 'If on a Winter's Night a Traveller...' - a book composed of the first chapters of other novels.

Calvino drew on a vast range of influences as diverse as tarot cards, astrophysics and the Brother's Grimm, drawing them together into his playful, literary worlds. His writing style danced from works of fantasy and science fiction to folktale and neo-realism - constantly resisting being defined by any single genre. Relishing the challenge to push the boundaries of literature, where he remained a quietly rebellious force until his death in 1985.

In this programme we hear from translator and Calvino scholar Professor Martin McLaughlin, the writer and academic Marina Warner and his friend Adam Pollock, amongst others. Alongside readings by Simon Russell Beale and archive of Calvino himself.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Louise Fryer

Stockhausen: Gesang der Jünglinge
Stockhausen: Mittwoch aus 'Licht' - Welt-Parlament

Kathinka Pasveer (sound projection)
Ex Cathedra
Jeffrey Skidmore (director)

Louise Fryer introduces a concert of music by one of the 20th century's most provocative, revolutionary composers. Gesang der Jünglinge (Song of the Youths) dates from the mid 1950s and is generally hailed as Stockhausen's first electronic masterpiece, a mind-popping sonic translation of the biblical story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, realised live tonight by Kathinka Pasveer who worked closely with the composer for over two decades. Welt-Parlament (World Parliament) was composed 30 years later and is a multi-lingual, virtuosic piece of choral writing for 37 singers, who form a futuristic world parliament discussing the theme of love. It receives its London premiere at the hands of Ex Cathedra and their director Jeffrey Skidmore, who promises listeners "an incredible spiritual feeling" by the end of this dazzling, demanding and hugely complex work.
