Viola: Air on a C String

Writer and string player Fiona Maddocks takes an analytical look at the viola. Why did so many great composers choose the most misunderstood and enigmatic string instrument as their favourite? What is it about its tone quality and the role that it plays in musical texture - right at the heart of the harmonic engine room - that made it so attractive, and why has it become the butt of jokes? With contributions from soloists PInchas Zukerman and Maxim Rysanov, Paul Cassidy of the Brodsky Quartet, violist/composers Brett Dean and Sally Beamish, and baroque violist Annette Isserlis.

Music includes works by Bach, Purcell, Mozart Beethoven, Schubert, Janacek, Smetana, Berlioz, Tchaikovsky, Hindemith, Britten, Vaughan Williams, Walton, and Bartok.

Judith Kerr

Michael Berkeley's guest on Private Passions this week is the best-selling children's author Judith Kerr. Now 89, Judith was born into a distinguished pre-war German Jewish intellectual family: her father, Alfred Kerr, was a well known journalist and critic, and her mother, Julia, a composer. The family fled from Berlin in 1933 after Hitler's rise to power, and lived in Switzerland and Paris before reaching London in 1936. In the 1950s Judith met and married Nigel Kneale, author of the famous BBC TV science fiction series Quatermass. Their son Matthew Kneale has followed in his parents' footsteps, becoming an acclaimed novelist, while their daughter Tacy is an artist.

Judith is both a writer and an illustrator, best known for her children's books, including the much-loved Mog series (about a cat), 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea' and the novel for young adults 'When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit', which is based on her own experiences as a child refugee, and won the 1974 Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis.

Judith's musical choices include a fragment of an opera about Einstein written by her parents; an excerpt from the final scene of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni; the Jewish Memorial Prayer El Malei Rachamim performed at the 2001 International Holocaust Memorial Day in London; Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, which was a favourite of her father, and was played at his funeral; part of 'Mars' from Holst's The Planets, which served as the theme music for Quatermass; The Dance of the Knights from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, which was a favourite of her husband's, and finally her own personal favourite, the Kyrie from Mozart's Mass in C minor, K427.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b037vywm)
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

Piano

When Robert Schumann abandoned his legal studies, the world may have lost a lawyer, but it gained one of the freshest, most distinctive musical voices of the 19th - or any other - century. In this 70th anniversary week of the programme, Donald Macleod explores the work and life of this prototypically Romantic composer, who drew his inspiration as much from literature and the dramas of his own life as from the music of the composers he revered - above all, Bach, Beethoven and Schubert.

Largely self-taught, Schumann immersed himself in one musical medium until he felt ready to move on and tackle another. So this week's programmes look in turn at his five major fields of compositional activity: solo piano; song; chamber music; music drama; and music for orchestra.

For his first ten years as a composer, Schumann focused almost exclusively on the piano. He was a virtuoso pianist and had originally envisaged a solo career, so it was a natural place for him to start. Schumann's piano music is closely bound up with the circumstances of its creation, from the early Toccata in C, inspired by seeing Paganini in concert, to another C major work on an altogether grander scale, the Fantasie, op.17, which dramatizes the composer's inner life, and particularly his feelings of desolation at being separated from Clara Wieck (later to become his wife). The soberly-titled Variations in E flat major on an Original Theme are Schumann's last surviving work for solo piano, written days before his voluntary committal to the asylum where he would see out his final years. He said that the theme was 'dictated by the angels' whose voices he heard one night as he lay in bed.

The world premiere of John McCabe's 'Joybox' opened 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 Márquez 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.

Prom 21 (part 1): Colin Matthews, Prokofiev and Shostakovich

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Thomas Søndergård live at the BBC Proms with Russian masterpeices by Prokofiev and Shostakovich plus a UK premiere by Colin Matthews

Colin Matthews: Turning Point (UK premiere)
Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2 in G minor

7.50pm Interval

Shostakovich Symphony No. 11, 'The Year 1905'

Daniel Hope (violin)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Søndergård (conductor)

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales reutrns to the BBC Proms with Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård to give the UK premiere of Colin Matthews's mercurial Turning Point. First performed in 2007 by the Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, it's a work the composer wrestled with over several years. The fast opening section came into being in 2003, but Matthews couldn't immediately find the way forward, and when he did a year later, the continuation was even faster, a whirling, scherzo-like episode. Once again, the composer ground to a halt, unable to continue. The 'turning point' came with a complete change of direction, music that was very slow and intense though based entirely on the same material that was heard earlier. The overall impression is, as Matthews puts it "of complex momentum countered by expressive simplicity".

British violinist Daniel Hope has toured the world as a virtuoso soloist for many years. Acclaimed by critics as adventurous and brilliant, of probing intellect and commanding style, he's also been described as "the most exciting British string player since Jacqueline du Pré" by the Observer. Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto was a landmark in his search for a new simplicity and a directness of expression. The flinty beauty of the concerto stands in sharp contrast to the granite heft of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 11, 'The Year 1905' written four years after the death of Joseph Stalin and studded through with revolutionary songs.

This Prom will be repeated on Tuesday 30th July at 2pm.

MON 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01ghb93)
AL Kennedy's Art and Madness

In this highly authored inquiry AL Kennedy questions the clichéd link between madness and creativity, claiming that being true to oneself and exploring ones identity is integral to the making or performing of one's art - however perilous this can seem. Losing one's mind is a negative, terrifying experience, freeing it can be nerve-wracking too, but also exhilarating, beautiful and eloquent - for everyone.

Many artists' creativity has been defined as a kind of obsessive disorder, a compulsion they can barely control. So, after being diagnosed with tuberculosis, Chekhov chose to continue work rather than seek treatment. Acutely tuned senses, restlessness, intensity of focus, reduced inhibition, depression, a sense of the visionary and heightened imaginative powers are all hallmarks of both the creative and mentally ill individual - a number of recent studies support this link. And yet decades of studies have also questioned conventional definitions of madness, treatments of the "insane" and the long-term effects of "normal" behaviour.

Van Gogh or Virginia Woolf could not work when they were experiencing a psychotic episode; Sylvia Plath was probably pushed to the brink by wrongly prescribed medication - she too could not write during extreme states of depression..

As we hear, making art can be profoundly therapeutic, but to create, perform or make, requires a great deal of control and order.

With contributions from psychologist Dorothy Rowe, psychotherapist Adam Phillips, writer Lisa Appignanesi, playwright John Byrne, pianist James Rhodes, performance artist Bobby Baker, sculptor and artist Cornelia Parker, actor Edward Petherbridge and patients and staff at Bethlem Psychiatric Hospital.

First broadcast in April 2012.

Prom 22: Naturally 7

A cappella vocal group Naturally 7 live at the BBC Proms. With a soundworld that ranges from scratching and drums to brass and electric guitar all produced with just the human voice.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Who needs instruments when you have seven voices and seven bodies? Building on the heritage of gospel with a style described as 'vocal play', the group performs its own material alongside arrangements of classics including George Harrison's 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' and Phil Collins's 'In the Air Tonight' which incorporate a range of sounds from scratching and drums to brass and electric guitar all produced with just the human voice.


MON 23:45 Jazz on 3 (b0375w9g)
John Surman

Reeds player John Surman has been key to the story of British jazz for 40 years and more. This solo performance, featuring music from his most recent album Saltash Bells, sums up why. Surman's musical pathways have taken him into free jazz and folk, South African township music and the blues - and many of those sounds are filtered into this set, in which he uses his trademark virtuosity, allied to an array of pedals and loops, to build rich soundworlds.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b037vyy9)
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

Song

When Robert Schumann abandoned his legal studies, the world may have lost a lawyer, but it gained one of the freshest, most distinctive musical voices of the 19th - or any other - century. In this 70th anniversary week of the programme, Donald Macleod explores the work and life of this prototypically Romantic composer, who drew his inspiration as much from literature and the dramas of his own life as from the music of the composers he revered - above all, Bach, Beethoven and Schubert.

Largely self-taught, Schumann immersed himself in one musical medium until he felt ready to move on and tackle another. So this week's programmes look in turn at his five major fields of compositional activity: solo piano; song; chamber music; music drama; and music for orchestra.

Today's programme is set largely in 1840, Schumann's 'year of song'. It was an extraordinary period of creative fertility that followed in the wake of his reunion with Clara Wieck, the sweetheart from whom he had been separated for many months. The year of song was far from idyllic; for much of it, Schumann had to contend with the litigation initiated by Clara's father, Friedrich, who was implacably opposed to their relationship. Implacable or not, he lost the battle, and on the 12th of September 1840, Clara Wieck became Clara Schumann. More than half of Schumann's output of lieder, much of it infused with his feelings for Clara, dates from this single year, including one of his finest song-cycles, Dichterliebe - The Poet's Love. Right at the other end of the spectrum are the 5 Hunting Songs of 1849, for male chorus and a quartet of horns.

Two great symphonies acutely expressive of light and shade, Schumann's Second and Sibelius's Seventh, complete an imaginative and stimulating sequence of works.

This Prom will be repeated on Wednesday 31st July at 2pm.


TUE 20:15 BBC Proms (b0375xd1)
Proms Plus Intro

Mozart and Vienna

Nicholas Till and Richard Wigmore join James Jolly to explore Mozart's Vienna, seat of the Hapsburgs, administrative capital of a growing empire and centre of the musical world.

It was less than a century before Mozart's birth that the Viennese and their allies drove the Turks from the gates of Vienna and pushed south creating a large empire. By the time Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven were walking its streets it had become a vibrant cosmopolitan city where the aristocracy lived in close proximity to the lower classes and catholic German speakers rubbed shoulders with immigrants from across the empire. With the ideas of the enlightenment being discussed in every coffee house and a population with money to spend, the scene was set for the composer of The Marriage of Figaro, Die Entfuhrung and The Magic Flute to entertain them.

Recorded earlier this evening at the Royal College of Music.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b037vyyc)
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

Chamber Music

When Robert Schumann abandoned his legal studies, the world may have lost a lawyer, but it gained one of the freshest, most distinctive musical voices of the 19th - or any other - century. In this 70th anniversary week of the programme, Donald Macleod explores the work and life of this prototypically Romantic composer, who drew his inspiration as much from literature and the dramas of his own life as from the music of the composers he revered - above all, Bach, Beethoven and Schubert.

Largely self-taught, Schumann immersed himself in one musical medium until he felt ready to move on and tackle another. So this week's programmes look in turn at his five major fields of compositional activity: solo piano; song; chamber music; music drama; and music for orchestra.

Schumann's first serious venture into chamber music came in 1842, and it was an exceptionally productive one: two piano quintets, three string quartets and a set of Phantasiestücke for piano trio. The first quintet is one of Schumann's most popular works and has a truly symphonic sweep. By contrast, the quartets are intimate and discursive. Ten years on, Schumann was half-way through an ill-fated post as Director of Music for the city of Düsseldorf. Perhaps it was the increasingly unsatisfactory nature of his encounters with the local symphony orchestra, of which he was now the conductor, that spurred him to an intense, late burst of chamber-music composition, including the strange and elliptical Märchenerzählungen.

WED 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01kjtwj)
Think Negative!

A celebration of nay-saying, refusal, and creative contrariness in cultural history.

We live in a culture that puts a premium on positivity and frowns on negativity. The poet, novelist and professor of Comparative Literature at Oxford University, Patrick McGuinness argues that, on the contrary, negative thinking is vital to the life of the mind and the progress of thought. He draws on a long fascination with "negative spaces", inspired by his youthful experiences of Bucharest at the end of the Ceaucescu era, a vanishing "city of lost walks", explored in his acclaimed first novel. His current research involves another "negative city", Bruges, which, after its link to the North Sea receded, was cut off from the commerce that once sustained it. Following the huge success of Georges Rodenbach's novel Bruges-la-Morte in 1892, a cult of "dead-Bruges" developed. It was considered the "anti-Paris" of the 19th century, a dark version of the City of Light, and drew tourists for that very reason. McGuinness recreates this anti-grand-tour with Belgian poet Stefan Hertmans.

Along the way he reflects how our current era is more likely to repress negativity than make a cult of it. Neuroscientist Tali Sharot argues that, like it or not, we have evolved an "optimism bias", while cultural commentator Barbara Ehrenereich claims that "positive thinking has ruined America and the world". McGuinness traces the changing role of negativity across cultural history: the via negativa of medieval theology; the negative dialectics of modern philosophy; the discovery of negative numbers in maths. Geoff Dyer and John Banville discuss the writers they admire who exemplify and inspire the creative possibilities of negative thinking.

Produced by Paul Quinn. A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.

First broadcast in July 2012.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b037vyyf)
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

Music Drama

When Robert Schumann abandoned his legal studies, the world may have lost a lawyer, but it gained one of the freshest, most distinctive musical voices of the 19th - or any other - century. In this 70th anniversary week of the programme, Donald Macleod explores the work and life of this prototypically Romantic composer, who drew his inspiration as much from literature and the dramas of his own life as from the music of the composers he revered - above all, Bach, Beethoven and Schubert.

Largely self-taught, Schumann immersed himself in one musical medium until he felt ready to move on and tackle another. So this week's programmes look in turn at his five major fields of compositional activity: solo piano; song; chamber music; music drama; and music for orchestra.

Today's programme is largely devoted to Schumann's one and only opera, Genoveva, a tale of conjugal suspicion - and devotion - set in the time of the Crusades. It's been widely criticised for its lack of real drama, but contains some wonderful music and deserves to be better known. Schumann's other major dramatic project started off as an opera but metamorphosed into an oratorio; Scenes from Goethe's Faust kept its composer occupied, on and off, for nearly ten years. Like Genoveva, it's had a mixed reception critically, and is equally deserving of performance.

Barry Wordsworth (conductor)

The BBC Concert Orchestra and their Conductor Laureate Barry Wordsworth demonstrate their versatility in a mixed programme celebrating British music of different styles, including pieces written by Walton and Coates used to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II 60 years ago, and Elgar's Nursery Suite, dedicated in 1931 to the Princesses Margaret and Elizabeth and their mother Elizabeth. The orchestra are joined by pianists Noriko Ogawa and Kathryn Stott in Malcolm Arnold's unashamedly attractive concerto and the programme ends with a celebration of old BBC radio signature tunes woven together in a medley by master arranger Gordon Langford.

Plus highlights from the 2012 Cheltenham Festival.

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b01jyzff)
Crowd Psychology

Collective behaviour and how it can be managed is a burgeoning field of science, driven by the demands of music festivals, sporting events and managing protests.

The origins of this topical specialism lie in the turn of the last century, when academics argued that crowds were a hostile force to be reckoned with - mad mobs where indviduals lose their rational behaviour and get caught up in the crowd. However there's a growing body of evidence to suggest the opposite. Geneticist Steve Jones investigates.

Producer: Erika Wright

First broadcast in June 2012.

How Pleasant to Know Mr Lear

Matthew Bevis

In the second essay in the series, Keble fellow and writer Matthew Bevis explores the story of nonsense. Looking back to a time before nonsense existed, he considers what nonsense is, how it fitted into the Victorian age and the role of Lear in its development.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b037vyyh)
Robert Schumann (1810-1856)

Music for Orchestra

When Robert Schumann abandoned his legal studies, the world may have lost a lawyer, but it gained one of the freshest, most distinctive musical voices of the 19th - or any other - century. In this 70th anniversary week of the programme, Donald Macleod explores the work and life of this prototypically Romantic composer, who drew his inspiration as much from literature and the dramas of his own life as from the music of the composers he revered - above all, Bach, Beethoven and Schubert.

Largely self-taught, Schumann immersed himself in one musical medium until he felt ready to move on and tackle another. So this week's programmes look in turn at his five major fields of compositional activity: solo piano; song; chamber music; music drama; and music for orchestra.

Schumann's orchestral output is the focus of the last of the week's programmes, with a complete performance of his 4th Symphony of 1841 (in its lusher 1851 revision). Donald also introduces an extract from one of Schumann's most exuberant and original works, the Konzertstück for 4 horns and orchestra, written during the composer's most productive year, 1849; and the strangely haunting Phantasie for violin and orchestra, one of Schumann's last completed works. It was written in the afterglow of encounters with the 18-year-old Joachim - six years into his career and already one of the foremost violinists in Europe - and a little-known composer, recently turned 20, who had the chutzpah to pitch up on the famous man's doorstep with a satchelful of his own compositions: Johannes Brahms.
