The Exile Returned

On September 21st 1962 when Igor Stravinsky got off the plane at Moscow airport he stepped onto Russian soil for the first time in over 45 years. During this time he had become the world's most famous composer and was first a Swiss and then an American citizen. Now at the age of 80 he returned at the height of the Cold War to a country cut off from the composer by revolution. What would he make of the old country and what would the old country make of him?

Bridget Kendall, the BBC's diplomatic correspondent and former Moscow correspondent tells the story of the composer's visit to Moscow and his home city of St Petersburg and the effect it had on Stravinsky, his party and the artists, composers and musicians living in the USSR. Featuring archive recordings of the concerts Stravinsky conducted during the trip, interviews with Russian writers and musicians who were in the audience, the composer's biographer Stephen Walsh and Soviet music specialists Gerard McBurney and Marina Frolova-Walker; Bridget Kendall uncovers the cultural significance of the event 50 years on.

The programme also features an exclusive interview with the composer's assistant, Robert Craft, who accompanied him on the visit and recalls how Stravinsky and his wife Vera immediately became enthusiastic Russians once again as soon as they came back to the 'motherland'.

Sophie Bevan (soprano)
The Academy of Ancient Music
Richard Egarr (conductor)

Before settling in Britain Handel visited to Rome to hear the famous Italian violinist and composer Arcangelo Corelli. Unable to write operas - which were temporarily banned in the Papal states - Handel turned his hand to writing sacred music. In this first of five Proms Saturday Matinees, Richard Egarr, Sophie Bevan and the Academy of Ancient Music examine Handel's vivacious Italian cantatas in the context of virtuosic concerti grossi and harpsichord music by Corelli and his compatriots.

SAT 20:15 Twenty Minutes (b0375p3h)
Roger Parker chairs a round-table discussion about Verdi's idea of God, the Church and Religion.

The Four Sacred Pieces were Verdi's final work and he said he wanted to be buried with the manuscript of the Te Deum. But Verdi was an agnostic, who refused to accompany his wife to church, and his religious music was described as 'opera in ecclesiastical clothing'.

In Verdi's God, Roger Parker and his guests explore the composer's spiritual life and its impact on his music, relationships and politics. Taking part in the discussion are Flora Willson from the University of Cambridge, who takes a special interest in the culture and society of Italy in the 19th century, and one of the pre-eminent Verdi conductors of today, Semyon Bychkov, whose performance of the Requiem was a highlight of the 2011 Proms season, and who will be bringing to bear his experience of the religious music in Verdi's operas and the operatic element in his religious music.

These three great Verdi experts will attempt to answer a very difficult question: who was Verdi's God?

SAT 21:45 Sunday Feature (b01nwcb1)
Way off the Beaten Track

Many of the most admired and popular travel writers of recent times have been revealed after their deaths as distinctly unreliable narrators, from Norman Lewis to Ryszard Kapuscinski.

Newsnight's Culture Correspondent Stephen Smith sets out on a journey to ask if it matters. Don't their polished yarns improve on reality, by giving the reader a better insight than more workaday and ambiguous 'truth' can offer? And aren't their worked-up stories simply more fun, better page-turners?

As a reporter and a travel writer, Stephen has grappled with the ethical and literary dilemmas of telling it like it is. But have other writers been as worried about such dull things as facts? He goes on a journey to explore the work of both past and present travel writers.

Producer: Charlotte McDonald.


SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b0375p59)
Vale of Glamorgan Festival 2013

Sandwiched between the two is Lithuanian composer Juste Janulyte's 'Elongation of Nights', whose sound, she says, is 'like a utopian 84-string instrument'. Presented by Ivan Hewett in conversation with Graham Fitkin.

Sunday - Simon Hoban

Simon Hoban presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show.


SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b0375pfd)
Rob Cowan's selection of music includes the guitar concerto by Malcolm Arnold, played by Julian Bream.

His theme is music by those of astounding musical talent, but who died young, including violinist Michael Rabin, cellist Emanuel Feuermann, and the much-loved contralto Kathleen Ferrier.

The morning's Telemann cantata is a secular work, Die Falscheit, sung by Peter Schreier.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0375pfg)
Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks

Lord Sacks ends his twenty-year tenure as Britain's Chief Rabbi this coming autumn. At his retirement dinner (24 June) Prince Charles described him as "a light unto this nation" and praised him for promoting the principle of tolerance, expressing mounting anxiety at the apparent rise in anti-Semitism, along with other poisonous and debilitating forms of intolerance.

In this programme, Lord Sacks looks back at his life and career, and talks to Michael Berkeley about both the joyous and the sad music which has accompanied him during his time as Chief Rabbi. From the moment his father took the young Jonathan (as a reluctant teenager) to a concert at the Albert Hall he has been passionate about the power of music. But he has also been concerned about the lack of music written for the Jewish people. Composers from Mendelssohn and Mahler to Irving Berlin and George Gershwin have composed for other faiths and other peoples. He feels this is part of the reason why Jewish music needs invigorating - it needs an injection of joyousness. He also talks about composers whose music he feels augurs the nineteenth- and twentieth- century tragedies suffered by the Jewish people, as well as the music which he feels represents the possibility of national and religious reconciliation.

His choices include Mahler, Beethoven, Stravinsky, Simon and Garfunkel and Bach. He is a thoughtful but also an ebullient speaker who loves jokes.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b0375pfj)
York Early Music Festival: Ensemble Medusa

Neptune's Kingdom

The undersea world is evoked in a sequence of words and music. Emily Taaffe and Nicholas Farrell read poetry and prose by Rita Dove, William Shakespeare and Charles Kingsley and the submarine music is provided by Britten, Hovhaness and Holst.

Songs of mackerel shoals and whale tales swell the ocean and the seas pick clean the bones of the drowned. There's beauty, death and the sea-change of new life here in the deep.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

From Clerk to Composer

Donald Macleod begins a week of programmes exploring the life and work of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky. Tchaikovsky played a crucial role in the creation of a new, national musical tradition in his homeland; eventually becoming Russia's greatest musical export and one of the most popular composers of the Romantic era.

Despite his obvious musical talents, Tchaikovsky decided to pursue a career in law. In this first programme, Donald Macleod tells how the young government clerk eventually overcame his doubts and became a student at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Donald then follows him to Moscow, where Tchaikovsky took on a new teaching job and his first significant love affair.

One of the most enterprising and accomplished of the specialist vocal ensembles on today's early music scene, the Huelgas Ensemble and founder/conductor Paul van Nevel make their BBC Proms debut with a characteristically imaginative programme centering on the little-known repertoire of choral music from Renaissance Poland - most of it rarely heard these days, and some of it only recently re-discovered in the archives of the University of Warsaw. Alongside the Polish music are works by 16th-century composers from other corners of Europe - including the great Italian Luca Marenzio, the Dutch-born Johannes Wanning, and Christoph Demantius from Bohemia.

with Jonathan Swain - and a second chance to hear the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Thomas Søndergård at last Thursday night's BBC Proms with three of the most colourful orchestral scores in the repertory
Presented by Petroc Trelawny at the Royal Albert Hall, London

Thomas Søndergård (conductor)
Imogen Cooper (piano)

Evocations of Nordic forests, Persian gardens and snow-capped mountains featured 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.

Wagner 200

Following the success of his Beethoven symphony cycle last year, Daniel Barenboim launches his Proms Ring cycle, the first ever performance of Wagner's four Ring cycle operas in a single Proms Festival.

Staatskapelle Berlin
Daniel Barenboim (conductor)

The first opera in Wagner's Ring cycle, Das Rheingold, introduces us to mythical stories of sword-wielding heroes, castles, magic potions and scheming dwarves, and the central corrupting influence of the all-powerful ring, guarded by the cruel water-sprites, otherwise known as the Rhinemaidens. A lecherous Nibelung dwarf called Alberich seizes the gold and heads to Nibelheim where he builds an empire based on fear and slave labour. We also meet Wotan the chief god in his castle Valhalla, and who when he hears of the all-powerful ring, decides he wants it for himself. Das Rheingold is performed by Staatskapelle Berlin and a stellar cast from both Barenboim's Berlin and Milan ring cycles. This is the first ever performance of Wagner's four Ring cycle operas in a single Proms Festival.

First broadcast in September 2012.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b0375qly)
TrioVD, Shatner's Bassoon

Think of 'prog' and lengthy concept albums, zany costumes and fantastical on-stage theatricality may spring to mind. Yet there's also a connection with a very contemporary-sounding strand of British jazz that has emerged in recent years, explored in this programme. Is there something within the bombastic skronk of TrioVD and the explosive eccentricity of sextet Shatner's Bassoon that connects to the British prog tradition? Alongside sets from these two bands and Dutch piano trio Tin Men And The Telephone, journalist Stephen Graham considers the implications of the term 'prog-jazz' in today's music and asks whether it's here to stay.

The opera opens with a turbulent prologue depicting the terrible storm and devastating events including incest and adultery that are about to shake the characters. Siegmund has been asked by Wotan to help him acquire the ring, but blots his copybook by falling for his long-lost twin sister Sieglinde. This angers Fricka, Wotan's consort, so much that she demands Siegmund's death. Brünnhilde, Wotan's rebel daughter who we meet for the first time, tries to defend him, but in punishment she is put to sleep on a rock surrounded by fire. Die Walküre is considered perhaps the most accessible of the Ring cycle operas, and ends with the powerful Magic Fire Music.

TUE 20:05 Twenty Minutes (b0375s09)
The Soviet Valkyrie

In 1940, the famed Soviet film director Sergey Eisenstein was suddenly invited to stage a production of Wagner's Die Walküre at the Bolshoi. Wagner was unlikely fare at this time - the Soviet Union was largely hostile to foreign art, especially that of its great political rival in Europe, Germany. Yet the signing of the Soviet-Nazi non-aggression pact in 1939 opened up a brief window for the oddest of reconciliations. The historian Philip Bullock considers Eisenstein's involvement in the production, and explores Russian interest in Wagner more generally, asking what happens when works of art get caught up in politics, propaganda and international diplomacy?

2012 Festival

Rewriting World History

Rana Mitter chairs a debate about World History at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival, with historian Antony Beevor, broadcaster Andrew Marr and India expert Maria Misra.

Does World History really still mean Western History, or do we need a radical new understanding of the past?

Antony Beevor is our leading military historian and author of the best-selling history books The Second World War and Stalingrad. Andrew Marr's landmark series A New History of the World aired on BBC1 last year, and he has published the book A History of the World. And Maria Misra is Fellow in Modern History at the University of Oxford and author of Vishnu's Corwded Temple, India since the Great Rebellion.

The event is hosted by Chinese History expert and Radio 3's Night Waves presenter Rana Mitter, and was recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2012.

First broadcast in November 2012.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b0375s54)
Late Junction at Latitude 2013

Max Reinhardt presents highlights from the Late Junction stage in the Lavish Lounge at the 2013 Latitude Festival.

On tonight's programme the sounds and dance moves of Moroccan master musician Simo Lagnawi are given a psychedelic space age makeover as Electric Jalaba float traditional Gnawa songs above analogue effects and warped guitars.

Newcastle's skewed troubadour Richard Dawson brings an intense soaring slant to traditional songs of the North East, with a voice that cracks and soars in equal measure.

Melt Yourself Down (pictured) conjure a post-punk jazz future with music hewn from North African deserts and the New York underground, that explodes onstage into a tropical storm.

Max also heads off around the site to meet festival goers and performers from across the artforms that make the festival unique, including sound-artist Nick Franglen and folk legend Richard Thompson.

Yo La Tengo also visited our truck to record a special acoustic session of melodic noise for Late Junction.

The wealthy Nadezhda von Meck became the composer's most important patron, meanwhile Tchaikovsky's disastrous marriage to Antonina Ivanovna Milyukova nearly destroyed him. Presented by Donald Macleod.


WED 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0375qzh)
Ulster Hall Piano Series 2013

Nikolai Demidenko

The Ulster Hall Piano Series continues with a recital by Russian pianist Nikolai Demidenko who is a regular visitor to Belfast.

On the programme are two works by Chopin, and Rachmaninov's Variations on a Theme by Corelli. The variations were written at Rachmaninov's holiday home in Switzerland in 1931 and are dedicated to the violinist Fritz Kreisler. The theme in question was not actually written by Corelli but was used by him in 1700 as the basis for variations in a violin sonata. Franz Liszt also used the same theme in his Rhapsodie espagnole.

Chopin: Berceuse

with Jonathan Swain - and another chance to hear the Academy of Ancient Music and Richard Egarr from the BBC Proms in a concert that celebrated Handel's visit to Rome to hear the music of Arcangelo Corelli

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill at Cadogan Hall, London

Sophie Bevan (soprano)
The Academy of Ancient Music
Richard Egarr (conductor)

Before settling in Britain Handel visited to Rome to hear the famous Italian violinist and composer Arcangelo Corelli. Unable to write operas - which were temporarily banned in the Papal states - Handel turned his hand to writing sacred music. In this first of five Proms Saturday Matinees, Richard Egarr, Sophie Bevan and the Academy of Ancient Music examined Handel's vivacious Italian cantatas in the context of virtuosic concerti grossi and harpsichord music by Corelli and his compatriots.

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4 in F minor

Raphael Wallfisch (cello)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Jac van Steen (conductor)

The baleful fanfare of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony heralds the BBC Proms complete cycle of his symphonies. For conductor Jac van Steen, it's a realisation of extreme opposites, and overcoming the contrasts: "The first movement is born out of the chaos that is an inevitable part of this process, it is concerned with darkness and fate, leading to a euphoric finale, where the energy turns to light and joy". Celebrating his 60th birthday this year, Raphael Wallfisch is the soloist in the Proms premiere of Granville Bantock's Sapphic Poem, launching the Proms focus on the composer this summer. Rich, lyrical and lushly orchestrated, it is framed by two very different portraits of Sir John Falstaff by Edward Elgar and William Walton.


WED 20:20 BBC Proms (b0375sjg)
Proms Plus Literary

Playing Falstaff

What makes Falstaff, Prince Hal's fat, boastful and cowardly companion so irresistible to writers and composers? The character appears in several Shakespeare plays and in musical works by Verdi, Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Salieri. Samira Ahmed talks to Timothy West and Desmond Barrit about their experience of playing one of Shakespeare's greatest characters.

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

2012 Festival

Mark Pagel

Evolutionary biologist Mark Pagel gives a talk on Evolution and Humanity - What Next? at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Why have humans evolved to speak so many incomprehensible languages? Why do we work against our own survival by going to war with one another?

Professor Mark Pagel, Head of the Evolution Laboratory at the University of Reading and author of Wired for Culture, argues that despite today's incredible cultural diversity, humanity has been steadily evolving from small tribes to huge nation states.

Are we moving towards a unified world of one language and one state?

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

First broadcast in November 2012.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (b0375sjl)
Late Junction at Latitude 2013

Max Reinhardt presents highlights from the Late Junction stage in the Lavish Lounge at the 2013 Latitude Festival.

On tonight's programme Walls vs. Daphne Oram bring the live incarnation of a project that has seen electronic duo Walls dig deep into the archives and transportative soundworld of the late Daphne Oram - composer, inventor and founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop - creating new material from the sounds they found there.

There's an acutely musical collaboration between kinetic DIY drummer Chris Corsano and Mick Flower on shaahi baaja, known as Flower-Corsano Duo (pictured) for a set of free improvisation that encompasses delicacy and noise at one fell swoop.

Acclaimed London based band Troyka bring a new vision of the jazz trio as their guitar, organ and drums swap roles in an ever changing musical landscape.

Plus, Viriginan Matthew E. White stops by our acoustic truck to record a session of swirling gospel-folk, as does Sierra and Bianca Casady aka the mysterious Coco Rosie with a multitude of instruments.

Presenter Nick Luscombe also meets one of his soul heroes in an exclusive interview with the legendary Bobby Womack.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0375r07)
Ulster Hall Piano Series 2013

Christian Ihle Hadland

Christian Ihle Hadland is one of Norway's most exciting young pianists. He continues the Ulster Hall Piano Series with a programme of Bach, Berg and Beethoven. At the heart of the concert is Berg's Opus 1 - a sonata which the composer initially intended to have a traditional three movement structure. After completing the first movement however he struggled to continue and turned to his teacher Arnold Schoenberg for advice. Schoenberg concluded that his pupil had simply said all there was to say.

Bach: French Suite No.6 in E major
Berg: Sonata, Op. 1
Beethoven: Sonata no.18 in E flat major, Op.31 No.3

The BBC Philharmonic and Juanjo Mena, live at the BBC Proms, perform John McCabe's 'Joybox', Beethoven's Symphony No 7, Falla's 'The Three-Cornered Hat' and Ravel's 'Bolero'.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Penny Gore

John McCabe: Joybox (BBC commission: world premiere)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A major

Falla: The Three-Cornered Hat (complete)
Ravel: Boléro

Clara Mouriz (mezzo-soprano)

BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

The world premiere of John McCabe's 'Joybox' opens a concert of music inspired by or written for dance, from the Bohemian stamp and whirl of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony to the slow-burn crescendo of Ravel's 'Boléro'. Mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz and the Compañía Antonio Marquéz join conductor Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic in Falla's colourful Ballets Russes commission 'The Three-Cornered Hat', a tale of intrigue and jealousy shot through with the spirit of Spanish folk dances.


THU 20:20 Twenty Minutes (b0375sm2)
Ravel's Bolero

Bolero is probably Ravel's most famous work, noted for its insistent repetition. It has been suggested that this repetition was not a musical device consciously adopted by the composer, but an early sign of the dementia that led to his death. An alternative view is that Bolero is an example of a musical genius simply writing under great pressure to finish a piece of music when another commission fell though at short notice.

Ravel died following neurosurgical treatment in 1937, after a period of gradual decline over a period of five years or more. His condition has fascinated doctors since the first scientific paper was written on Ravel's decline in 1948, and a steady flow of scientific papers has followed since, trying to establish a precise diagnosis and the effect his condition had on his music.

Broadcaster and writer Stephen Johnson looks at the final years of Ravel's life, and the extent to which his creativity may have been affected by the loss of his mental faculties, not just in Bolero but in his two late piano concertos.

Frustratingly, we have no brain scans or autopsy records for Ravel, so any attempt at diagnosis of his condition must be based on an analysis of clinical records and contemporary accounts from Ravel and his friends. So will we ever reach a definitive diagnosis, and be able to establish what effect his illness had on his music? And can psychiatry suggest an alternative diagnosis of Ravel's condition - and the possible effect on his music - which is not available to neuroscience?

With contributions from Ravel biographer Roger Nichols, writer and former consultant psychiatrist Eva Cybulska, and Dr Jason Warren, a neurologist at the Dementia Research Centre, University College London.

THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b01p9hrm)
2012 Festival

Philippa Gregory

Rana Mitter talks to the best-selling novelist Philippa Gregory about writing historical fiction and her fascination with the Tudors, recorded at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Philippa Gregory's fiction turns the spotlight on the lives of women at significant moments in history. Her Tudor series of novels includes The Other Boleyn Girl, which became a Hollywood film, and her most recent collection is set during the War of the Roses, England's epic power struggle between the Houses of Lancaster and York. BBC1 have now turned these novels into a major drama series The White Queen.

In an event recorded at Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at The Sage Gateshead in November 2012 in front of a live audience, Philippa Gregory reveals why she went from academia to fiction, how her approach to Tudor characters such as Thomas Cromwell differs from other historial novelists such as Hilary Mantel, whose Wolf Hall won the Man Booker prize, and why she can't help interfering with drama scripts of her novels.

First broadcast in December 2012.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b01mssbk)
The Piano in Five Pieces

Susan Tomes

Susan Tomes reveals the pianist's experience of constantly playing unfamiliar instruments on the concert platform. Unlike string and woodwind players, who take their beloved instruments with them, pianists face the unknown as they sit down to perform on unknown pianos. How does this impact on the playing and what surprises does it offer?

First broadcast in September 2012.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b0375snf)
Late Junction at Latitude 2013

Max Reinhardt presents highlights from the Late Junction stage in the Lavish Lounge at the 2013 Latitude Festival.

On tonight's programme composer Anna Meredith brings her cello-encrusted live band to perform music of symphonic scale with dancefloor intensity, crossing all boundaries between concert hall and festival stage, acoustic and electronic composition. Multi-instrumentalist Nancy Elizabeth conjures up old English folk traditions alongside the soundworlds of Ennio Morricone and Arthur Lee, and brings it all together with her beautifully unadorned voice. Post-tropical polyphonic populists from Minas Gerais in Brazil, Graveola draw influence from kitsch pop radio and dusty classical vinyls to create a sound they call "carnival-cannibalism", mixing the canon of 20th-century Brazilian music with funk, Latin, baroque and blues.

Max also heads off around the site to meet festival-goers and performers from across the artforms that make the festival unique.

Late Junction, BBC Radio 3's late night celebration of musical curiosities from across time and space returns to Latitude for a third year running. Filling the woods with captivating sounds, previous line-ups have featured music as diverse as Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier, song collector and Mercury Prize nominee Sam Lee and the tape music of minimalist composer Steve Reich. For 2013, Late Junction presenter Max Reinhardt hosts another hand-picked collection of diverse, wild music in the intimate setting of The Lavish Lounge.

FRI 20:15 Twenty Minutes (b0375szx)
When Tolkien Stole Wagner's Ring

Tolkien always vehemently denied any connection between his Lord of the Rings and Wagner's Ring Cycle. He once said: 'Both rings were round, and there the resemblance ceased'.

But there is almost certainly more to it than that. Tolkien used the same Norse legends as Wagner for inspiration in 'Lord of the Rings', but it also seems likely that he took the original idea of an all-powerful and corrupting ring directly from Wagner. So why did he deny it? Perhaps Tolkien felt the taint of the Nazi associations that surrounded Wagner's music at the time he was writing. Perhaps he simply found Wagner's conclusions distasteful. Was Tolkien's work, in fact, conceived as a kind of antidote to Wagner's take on ultimate power.

Susan Hitch explores the connections between the pair of them.
