SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b01lyb4k)
Wandering Minstrels

Sarah Walker uncovers the forgotten story of one of the best known orchestras in Britain in the late 1800s: The Wandering Minstrels - a bunch of aristocrats and middle-class dilettantes who claimed to be the only purely amateur orchestra in Europe. They gave the first ever concert in the Royal Albert Hall, they raised the equivalent of millions of pounds for charity through their performances - and they really put the professionals' backs up.

And if their name seems familiar, you're probably thinking of the Gilbert & Sullivan song 'A wandering minstrel I' from The Mikado. No, the orchestra didn't name themselves after the song: the song was a tongue-in-cheek homage to the then-famous orchestra. Sullivan was good mates with the orchestra's founder, Seymour Egerton (later the Fourth Earl of Wilton), and Nanki-Poo, who sings the song, is - like the orchestra's players - a member of the nobility roughing it as an itinerant musician.

First broadcast in August 2012.

Dowland's Grand Tour

As part of the celebrations of the 450th anniversary of the birth of John Dowland, Catherine Bott talks to American lutenist Paul O'Dette about Dowland's travels around Europe, and the lutenist-composers he met en route, such as Melchior Neusidler, Simone Molinari and Gregorio Huwet.

Donald Runnicles (conductor)

A renowned interpreter of Austro-German repertoire, Donald Runnicles opens this concert with arguably the most famous waltz in the world - The Blue Danube - and the evening ends with the symphony which has one of the most recognisable openings of all time, Beethoven's Fifth.

James MacMillan's Violin Concerto, which was premiered by Vadim Repin in 2010, is the centrepiece of the concert. The concerto is influenced strongly by Scottish traditional music, as the composer says "Fiddle music has long been under my skin, and in writing a violin concerto it is inevitable that it would rise up to the surface. Its roots are in song and dance, and these most ancient modes of expression and storytelling are at the heart of my new work."

SAT 21:45 Sunday Feature (b01mfb2d)
Jacquetta Hawkes and the Personal Past

Christine Finn excavates clues in the personal and public life of once acclaimed archaeologist and writer, Jacquetta Hawkes, to explain why she has faded from public memory.

Jacquetta Hawkes defined archaeology for the post-War generation. Central to the planning of the Festival of Britain, her films and her regular TV and radio appearances ensured she was a public figure; her best-selling 1951 book, A Land, made archaeology accessible in a novel way. When Christine Finn came across it while studying archaeology and poetry, she could not understand why its author had been forgotten, while her second husband, JB Priestley, with whom she wrote and collaborated, remains well known. Finn's excavation throws up clues in Hawkes' personal and public life to explain why she was erased from public memory.

Finn was responsible for rescuing Hawkes' papers after her death and has championed her work as Hawkes' biographer. Now she celebrates the re-issue after 60 years of Hawkes' best known book, A Land. Illustrated by Henry Moore, it was a unique synthesis of art and geology, captivating critics and public alike, and introducing Hawkes' literary trademark: archaeology laced with her own personal past.

In the course of her excavation Christine Finn meets Jacquetta Hawkes' son Nicolas, JB Priestley's son Tom, Emeritus Professor of European Archaeology at Oxford Barry Cunliffe, Roman archaeologist Dr Martin Henig and Professor of Classical Archaeology at Stanford Michael Shanks; and she visits the Hawkes' archive at Bradford University in the company of archivist Alison Cullingford.

Producer: Marya Burgess

First broadcast in September 2012.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b037tvrj)
Jocelyn Bell Burnell

The astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell changed the way we see the universe. At the age of only 24, as a Phd student, she discovered a totally new kind of star, a pulsar. Her older male colleagues got the Nobel Prize for the discovery ? her name being unfairly, and in the view of many scientists, outrageously, left off. But many honours have followed, and Jocelyn Bell Burnell is currently Visiting Professor of Astrophysics at Oxford University.

In Private Passions she talks to Michael Berkeley about the sexism she's fought all her life as a woman in science: the jeering and catcalls she encountered in lectures at Glasgow university, and the fight as a young girl to be allowed to study science at all. She reflects on what it was like to be denied the Nobel Prize so unfairly ? and why she doesn't feel bitterness. She evokes the exhilaration of scientific discovery, and talks too about the darker times in her life, when she had a very sick child and her marriage failed. Her musical passions include Haydn, Verdi, Smetana, Sibelius, Rachmaninov and Arvo Pärt.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b037tvrl)

To help her are studio guests Jacob Heringman, currently one of Britain's foremost lutenists, and the singer Emma Kirkby, whose seminal recordings and performances of Dowland songs have enchanted audiences for many years.

Rana Mitter and guests explore Richard Wagner's relationship with French Music and ideas.

That most German of composers, Wagner, had a consistent and interesting relationship with France throughout his life. From 1848 when he stood on a revolutionary barricade fired with the spirit of the French revolution to the rewriting of Tannhauser at the behest of the Emperor Napoleon. Indeed, the disastrous premiere of Tannhäuser in Paris in 1861, when laughter and whistling broke out and the whole was invaded by members of the 'Jockey Club', brought the curtain down on Wagner's attempts to conquer Paris, the capital city of Opera. Professor Tim Blanning and Dr. Sarah Hibberd swap notes on Wagner's very personal Franco-German alliance.

Producer: James Cook.

Episode 1

Lucy Duran presents more highlights from last weekend's WOMAD festival held at Charlton Park in Wiltshire. Including the Malian star Rokia Traore, Guy Schalom's Egyptian project Baladi Blues and the Brazilian beats of DJ Tudo. Producer James Parkin.

Rokia Traoré is a Victoires de la Musique award-winning Malian singer, songwriter and guitarist. Born in Mali as a member of the Bambara ethnic group. Unusually for a female musician in Africa, Rokia plays acoustic guitar as well as sings, and she uses vocal harmonies in her arrangements which are rare in Malian music. Her first album "Mouneïssa" (1997) sold over 40,000 copies in Europe. Her second album "Wanita" was widely acclaimed with The New York Times nominating it as one of its critics' albums of the In 2013, her latest album "Beautiful Africa" was released and she performed at the Glastonbury Festival.

Described as urban Egyptian dance music, Baladi Blues combine accordion and saxophone improvisations with Arabic percussion uniting some of Egypt's most renownedmaster musicians: Ahmed El Saidi, Sheik Taha and Aly el Minyawi.

Regarded as one of Brazil's most important researchers of that country's traditional cultrure, DJ Tudo has a collection of over 1700 recorded hours, including around 10, 000 LPs. The marrying of this amazing collection of sounds from all over Brazil with acoustic bass, electric bass, sampling, percussion, keyboards and programming has created the unique sound that is DJ Tudo.

200 Years of the Royal Philharmonic Society

Commissioning Beethoven's Ninth

Marking the 200th birthday of one of the nation's most influential musical organisations, this week Composer Of The Week celebrates the story of the Royal Philharmonic Society - and the remarkable roll-call of commissions and world premieres given by the Society during its two centuries of existence.
From 1813 to the present day, the one-time "Philharmonic Society of London" (it acquired its "Royal" title in 1912) has been responsible for some of the greatest musical masterpieces of each successive generation. Beethoven's Ninth Symphony was commissioned by the Society, as was Mendelssohn's "Italian" Symphony, Vaughan Williams' Ninth, Elgar's Violin Concerto, Saint-Saëns' "Organ" Symphony, and many others.
But more than this, the story of the RPS is one of our nation's relationship with some of Europe's greatest composers. Richard Wagner came to London to conduct the Society for one, tumultuous, season in 1855, following in the footsteps of his compatriot Felix Mendelssohn - a great supporter and friend of the organisation. Later, Dvorak, Saint-Saens, Grieg, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov all enjoyed a fruitful relationship with the Society, delighting audiences with their performances. Complementing an almost unparalleled playlist of commissions from the 19th century, each day we'll also hear a key RPS commission from the 20th and 21st centuries - showcasing works by Thea Musgrave, Alan Rawthorne and Mark-Anthony Turnage.
This week, Donald Macleod is joined by the cultural historian Leanne Langley to take us through all these stories and many more, exploring musical highlights both familiar and unfamiliar from the first 100 years of the organisation and the watershed the RPS faced in the late 20th century as it faced financial crisis and potential extinction.
He speaks to the Society's current Executive Director, Rosemary Johnson, about how the RPS dramatically reinvented itself in the 21st century as a commissioner and promoter of new music - and the remarkable litany of new commissions (more than 50 and counting since the turn of the millennium) that have seen the RPS reclaim their position at the heart of British musical life.
--
Donald Macleod begins his exploration of the RPS's bicentenary with the story of how the Philharmonic Society came to be founded in 1813, as part of the great architectural and artistic projects of Regency London. He juxtaposes one of the Society's very first commissions, by the little-known Ferdinand Ries, with arguably their greatest-ever: Beethoven's monumental Ninth Symphony. The programme ends with another valedictory Ninth Symphony, commissioned by the RPS in the 20th century, by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

James MacMillan's Violin Concerto, which was premiered by Vadim Repin in 2010, is the centrepiece of the concert. The concerto is influenced strongly by Scottish traditional music, as the composer says "Fiddle music has long been under my skin, and in writing a violin concerto it is inevitable that it would rise up to the surface. Its roots are in song and dance, and these most ancient modes of expression and storytelling are at the heart of my new work."

BBC Introducing at the 2013 Manchester Jazz Festival

Some of the UK's brightest emerging jazz musicians converge on the BBC Introducing stage at this year's Manchester Jazz Festival. Hosted by Jez Nelson at the Band on the Wall club, the night features four bands from around the country. Leeds-based piano player Laura Cole and her ensemble, Metamorphic, bring together jazz and folk in multi-layered grooves, interspersed with freer explorations of texture. Bristol quintet Moonlight Saving Time re-interpret music by some of the great jazz composers with a sound that harks back to 1970s Latin jazz-fusion, but brought up to date with contemporary hip-hop and Afro-Cuban influences. There are also hip-hop tinges to Dominic J Marshall's piano trio, while the music of London quartet Twelveheads, led by drummer Peter Ibbetson, has an angularity reminiscent of the New York downtown scene.

BBC Introducing gives unsigned, undiscovered or under-the-radar bands the chance to upload their music and get it played on BBC radio. The bands featured in this programme were selected to appear at the Manchester Jazz Festival by Jez Nelson, Gilles Peterson and Jamie Cullum.

TUE 22:00 Sunday Feature (b01n6r1t)
Renouncing India

Jatinder Verma examines the growing tension in India between the ingrained religious way of life and the powerful modernised society around it, as he explores the role of the ascetic in modern Indian life and culture.

India has aspirations to become a new global superpower. The middle class is over 300 million strong and growing fast. But India still operates as a deeply structured traditional society, with rigid religious codes and a caste system underpinning all aspects of life, especially in rural areas.

Jatinder Verma considers the impact of the ascetic on Indian mainstream life and politics and asks whether it can survive the profound economic transformation that is taking place in India at present.

According to traditional scriptures, the ideal life in India should be lived in defined stages. Between the ages of 12-25 you are a student, between 25-50 you should be a householder, from 50-75 you take the role of an elder, and from 75 you are encouraged to become an ascetic - totally renouncing the world and its possessions to live beyond the normal rules of society.

"Renouncing India" describes the lives of ascetics in India including the more extreme younger religious dropouts. It contrasts religious culture in one of the most globalised cities in India, Delhi, with life in one of India's most religious cities, Varanasi, on the banks of the Ganges. What does such a spectacularly radical tradition, where men and women give up their homes and families to undergo severe penance, say about the nature of Indian modernity?

How Pleasant to Know Mr Lear

Robert Crawford

Marking the centenary of Edward Lear's birth in 1812, this series of five essays considers the exuberant play of Edward Lear as a nonsense poet and artist and the influence of 'nonsense' on modern life.

In the third essay in the series, Robert Crawford, poet and professor of Modern Literature at the University of St Andrews, speaks about Edward Lear's literary legacy.

He will focus especially on T S Eliot, who often drew on the work of Lear in his writing, even going as far as to write the poem 'How Unpleasant to Meet Mr Eliot'.

200 Years of the Royal Philharmonic Society

Wagner at the Helm

By the middle of the 19th century, the Society was looking for a new musical direction. Enter stage left the young, supremely confident Richard Wagner, who was appointed chief conductor of the Society's orchestra for one truly tumultuous concert season in 1855. Donald Macleod explores the highs and lows, the drama and mutual antipathy with the help of cultural historianb Leanne Langley, before presenting works by Spohr and the "great white hope" of Victorian British music, William Sterndale Bennett. He also introduces the Society's relationship with European composers of the late 19th century and the reception of Tchaikovsky's dramatic "Pathetique" symphony.
The programme ends with a masterpiece of 20th century British orchestral music - Thea Musgrave's Clarinet Concerto, commissioned by the RPS in 1969.

WED 20:35 Twenty Minutes (b00m0d7p)
The Planets

Music journalist and cultural commentator Paul Morley on finally seeing the future in Gustav Holst's 'The Planets'.

'The Planets' was the first classical album that Paul Morley ever bought. As a teenager into experimental German electronic music and psychedelic rock, he expected it to take him into the realms of science fiction. But has was disappointed. It seemed irrelevant, old-fashioned, nothing to do with the future. Decades on, however, 'The Planets' has become for Morley the music of the future, for the future, and it's pop and rock that sound dated and quaint in comparison.

Written and read by Paul Morley
Produced by Justine Willett.

200 Years of the Royal Philharmonic Society

Turning to Europe

By the late 1800s, under the steady stewardship of Francesco Berger, the Philharmonic Society of London was thriving after a few years in the musical and financial doldrums. Yet, as competition increased from other concert societies, they turned their focus abroad, forging strong relationships with Dvorak, Grieg and Saint-Saëns.
Donald Macleod is joined once more by the cultural historian, Leanne Langley to explore the musical scene of late 19th century London, before a rare opportunity to hear Alan Rawsthorne's First Symphony - commissioned by the RPS in 1950.

Sylvia Plath

To mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Sylvia Plath and the publication of her novel, The Bell Jar, the writer, Lavinia Greenlaw and the critic, Sally Bayley, look back on the legacy of a remarkable poet with readings by Buffy Davis.

Born in Boston in 1932 Plath moved to England to study at Cambridge where she met and married the poet Ted Hughes. Her first collection of poems, Colossus, was published here in 1960. In 1962 she wrote most of the poems which would form her best known collection, Ariel. She died in February 1963 during one of the most severe winters on record in Britain. Ariel and The Bell Jar were published after her death.

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

THU 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01n9zgv)
Kashmir - the Flower of India

Jatinder Verma reports on India's troubled relationship with the contested region of Kashmir. He describes the seismic cultural change that has occurred in Kashmir since the collapse of the old world order after the fall of communism and the major eruption of violence in the region in 1989 - a local uprising rapidly became a stand off between India and Pakistan.

Jatinder Verma, the director of Tara Arts theatre company, talks to key players in the cultural life of Kashmir.

Loosely using the framework of Indian cinema, Jatinder explores the ways in which India's relationship to this beautiful Himalayan region has changed over the years.

He describes the famous syncretic elements that once defined traditional Kashmiri culture and discovers how well that culture has survived decades of violence. Do the local Sufi beliefs of the region and the particular culture of the Hindu minority continue to flourish? Now that thousands of Indian tourists are returning to the once idyllic valley, with its mountains, famous lakes and landscaped gardens, is normal life resumed?
