Tchaikovsky's 1812: A Dishonest Overture?

September 7th, 1812. Near the village of Borodino, just 30 miles from Moscow, the forces of Tsarist Russia face the might of Napoleon's grande armée. James Jolly explores Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture, written to commemorate this battle, and discovers hidden depths in this famous crowd-pleaser, which plays fast and loose with historical fact. With contributions from historian Orlando Figes, Russian music expert Geoffrey Norris, and conductors Andrew Litton and Vasily Petrenko.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b03851db)
Cipriano de Rore Parody Mass

Josquin's motet - Praeter rerum seriem - proved to be very popular with younger composers of 16th century and in this programme Lucie Skeaping takes a look at how two of them - Cipriano de Rore and Roland de Lassus - paid a compliment to Josquin by using material from the motet in their own music. Nowadays song writers and composers "sample" music from elsewhere all the time but the idea is not a new one. "Parody" masses were very popular in the 16th century, sometimes being controversial in the choice of material if it was not sacred. De Rore's mass and a Magnificat by Lassus, along with the original Josquin motet, have been specially recorded for the Early Music Show by the BBC Singers conducted by Peter Phillips, who talks to Lucie Skeaping about why this music fascinates him.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b038542t)
Adam Nicolson

Adam Nicolson has the privilege, and the burden, of an extraordinary inheritance: Sissinghurst, that quintessentially English house and garden created by his grandparents Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West. In his own right, he's the author of a series of highly esteemed history books and television series, about the making of the King James Bible, about the English gentry, and most recently about 17th-century writers. But it's that Sissinghurst connection which fascinates us all: growing up with bohemian writers and artists, there must have been music going on there all the time? Not at all - Adam reveals that his family were musical philistines. His father hated music because it moved him, and made him emotional ? so for an Englishman of that generation and class it was deeply suspect. It's only in middle age that Adam is discovering music, and he admits cheerfully that his musical taste is 'dreadful'. He also talks about walking 6000 miles round Europe, about his love for the Hebrides, and about his disastrous 'open' marriage. Adam and his wife had a deal ? they were allowed to have two affairs a year, as long as they were abroad. This too was the legacy of Sissinghurst, and a father who urged him to have as many affairs as possible. What followed was predictable, and messy, but with a happy ending - as Adam's choice of music reveals.

A light-hearted programme, which includes music by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Eric Whitacre, Prokofiev, Roberta Flack, and a reading by Alec Guinness of T.S.Eliot's 'Little Gidding'.

Presented at the Royal Albert Hall by Christopher Cook.

Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

Mitsuko Uchida (piano)
Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
Mariss Jansons (conductor)

Mitsuko Uchida is a much loved figure on the concert platform, and she returns to the Proms after an absence of almost 20 years, joining the Bavarian Radio Symphony for Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 4, in which musical ideas are tested to their limits in a dialogue between the keyboard and orchestra. The rest of the programme is devoted to Berlioz's monumental Symphonie fantastique, complete with opium-fuelled obsessions, a rural idyll and a danse macabre. The conductor Mariss Jansons, who celebrates his 70th birthday this year, is a regular at the Proms, and he demonstrates the closeness of his 10-year partnership with the Bavarian orchestra.

Vasily Petrenko (conductor)

The first ever major free Prom with a host of youthful performers celebrates the bicentenary this year of the Royal Philharmonic Society with the most famous piece the Society ever played a role in commissioning - and a brand new one too. The 'most famous' is surely Beethoven's last completed Symphony, the groundbreaking Choral Symphony - for which the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain are joined by four soloists and three youthful choirs from the UK and Ireland, including from Derry-Londonderry, the UK City of Culture 2013. The 'brand new' is by British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, who's been 'obsessed with Beethoven from the age of 8 - what a joy, therefore, to be asked by the RPS to write a piece inspired by Beethoven's great Symphony. Beethoven is a towering figure, but I find him more inspiring than intimidating.' Turnage's title refers to the famous Beethoven Frieze created in 1902 by the Viennese artist Gustav Klimt.

An edited version of this Prom will be broadcast on Tuesday 13th August at 2pm.

The first ever major free Prom with a host of youthful performers celebrates the bicentenary this year of the Royal Philharmonic Society with the most famous piece the Society ever played a role in commissioning - and a brand new one too. The 'most famous' is surely Beethoven's last completed Symphony, the groundbreaking Choral Symphony - for which the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain are joined by four soloists and three youthful choirs from the UK and Ireland, including from Derry-Londonderry, the UK City of Culture 2013. The 'brand new' is by British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, who's been 'obsessed with Beethoven from the age of 8 - what a joy, therefore, to be asked by the RPS to write a piece inspired by Beethoven's great Symphony. Beethoven is a towering figure, but I find him more inspiring than intimidating.' Turnage's title refers to the famous Beethoven Frieze created in 1902 by the Viennese artist Gustav Klimt.

An edited version of this Prom will be broadcast on Tuesday 13th August at 2pm.

WOMAD 2013

Episode 2

Lucy Duran presents more highlights from this year's WOMAD festival held at Charlton Park in Wiltshire two weeks' ago. Including the groups Dawanggang from China and Canzoniere Grecanico from Southern Italy. Producer James Parkin.

Dawanggang is a musical ensemble created by Song Yuzhe, an eclectic musician from the
North East of China. While the name Dawanggang has no other meaning than "what you see above", the content of the music reaches far and wide, from the nomadic themes of Western China to broad experimental lines.

Formed by writer Rina Durante in 1975, Canzoniere Grecanico is a traditional music ensemble from Salento, Italy. The seven piece band perform a contemporary style of Southern Italy's traditional Pizzica music and dance. Based in Lecce, the group performs under the direction of fiddler and drummer Mauro Durante. Canzoniere Grecanico has recorded 17 albums and performed all over the world. In 2010, they were awarded Best Italian World Music Group at the Meeting of Independent Labels festival in Italy.

Prom 39 (part 1): Holst, Nishat Khan & Vaughan Williams

East meets West in two visions of India and a portrait of London. Nishat Khan's Sitar Concerto and Vaughan Williams's London Symphony with David Atherton and The BBC National Orchestra of Wales live at the BBC Proms.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Suzy Klein

Vaughan Williams: A London Symphony (Symphony No. 2)

Nishat Khan (sitar)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
David Atherton (conductor)

Gustav Holst's fascination with Sanskrit literature found early expression in the 1903 tone-poem Indra, composed before the first set of his Hymns from the Rig Veda (heard on Radio 3 in Proms Chamber Music No 5, Monday 12 August 13:00). Sitar virtuoso Nishat Khan is a proms verteran, having first played as a soloist in 1989. This is the first time one of his own compositions has appeard at the Proms. Writing his concerto is a dream come true: "I have a huge love and respect for the Western classical tradition, and it's a daunting challenge to find a way of combining the sitar with this beautiful, gigantic orchestral sound". He's taken a minimalist approach, with the soloist partly playing composed lines and partly improvising; somtimes the forces meet in dialogue, sometimes embarking upon rhythmic exploration together, with a lot of interaction. He won't be using other indian instruments, though, rather exploiting the sounds of the orchestra. "I think of Western classical music as a huge ocean with so many different fish, plants and temperatures. Among the elements, he particularly loves the sound of the cello and the oboe, which he says combines beautifully with the sitar, bringing a "piercing nostalgia".

First performed in 1914, Vaughan Williams's A London Symphony evokes the chimes of Westminster, a chill November in Bloomsbury and the bright lights of the Strand in a city that would soon be scarred by war.

First half simulcast on BBC Asian Network.

An edited version of this Prom will be broadcast on Thursday 15th August at 2pm.

Stephen Johnson and Kate Kennedy join Louise Fryer to talk about the Symphony that remained Vaughan Williams's own favourite even after he'd written seven more.

MON 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01s46xc)
Along the Highland River

Neil Gunn's novel, 'Highland River', explores a northern river and its impact on a boy's life. Poet Kenneth Steven sets off to find the source of the river and Gunn's inspiration.

'Highland River' is set in Caithness in the far north of the Scottish mainland. The actual river on which the story is based is Dunbeath Water, and the novel explores the lives of those who live in and around the area. Kenneth Steven has always been fascinated by the story, and travels to Dunbeath to retrace the steps of the central character of the novel, himself called Kenn.

This is a wild and extraordinary landscape, where the sheltered corners of the strath soon give way to open peatland moors, known in Caithness as the 'flow country'. In Gunn's novel, Kenn makes a journey from the coast inland, to find the source of the river in the flow country. It becomes symbolic of both what has been lost and what has endured.

With its imaginative depiction of Kenn's childhood in Dunbeath, the horrors of the First World War, and his return to Caithness, this is a story which has deep resonance for communities across the highlands of Scotland.
Kenneth Steven explores the lasting significance of 'Highland River', whilst setting himself the challenge of reaching the river's source.

Fred Frith

Pioneering guitarist and composer Fred Frith returned to his native UK last year to perform for the first time with leading British free-improvisers John Edwards (bass) and Mark Sanders (drums). This week's programme features the previously unbroadcast second set from that gig. Frith's grounding in experimental rock and the improvising lineage of the likes of Derek Bailey make him one of the most adventurous guitarists around, adopting unorthodox percussive techniques that give his playing variety on an orchestral scale. Edwards and Sanders are the perfect foil for this approach, creating an ensemble sound in which it's sometimes impossible to tell where one instrument begins and another ends.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Chris Elcombe.

A host of youthful performers celebrates the bicentenary this year of the Royal Philharmonic Society with the most famous piece the Society ever played a role in commissioning - and another chance to hear Mark Anthony Turnage's brand new BBC Co-Commission with the RPS. The 'most famous' is surely Beethoven's last completed Symphony, the groundbreaking Choral Symphony - for which the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain are joined by four soloists and three youthful choirs from the UK and Ireland, including from Derry-Londonderry, the UK City of Culture 2013. 'Obsessed' with Beethoven from the age of 8, we hear a new work by British composer Mark-Anthony Turnage. He described being asked by the RPS to write a piece inspired by Beethoven's great Symphony as "...a joy... Beethoven is a towering figure, but I find him more inspiring than intimidating..." Turnage's title refers to the famous Beethoven Frieze created in 1902 by the Viennese artist Gustav Klimt.

Plus Spanish music from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

This Country Called Russia

Lesley Chamberlain tells the story of the Red Princess, Sofka Skipwith, posh supporter of the Soviet Union and personal assistant to Laurence Olivier and Vivien Leigh.

Producer: Tim Dee

Women in exile are often forced to lead brave and extraordinary lives. Sofka Skipwith (1907-1994) has been called The Red Princess. She was born Princess Dolgorouky. After fleeing the revolution with her family and ending up in London she did a series of jobs, including personal assistant to the actor Laurence Olivier and his wife Vivien Leigh. It wasn't easy to keep body and soul together, but her grand manner and her toughness carried her through. The love of her life and briefly her husband was killed at the beginning of the war. During the war in which she was active saving Jewish lives she was interned by the Nazis in occupied France. With her second husband, to whom she referred as 'my prole', she lived in the wilds of Bodmin Moor. At the same time, for many years she guided tourists on visits to the Soviet Union, of which she was a posh supporter. Never having wanted to leave her native country, she maintained a loyalty to the last. Both the British and Israeli governments recognized her wartime achievements. She wrote excellent memoirs and one of the first Russian cookery books in English.

Here's Looking at Me

Episode 1

Maggi Hambling's self portrait of 1978 was made, according to the artist, when her life was 'in a muddle'. Spiritually in love with one person but having an affair with another, the artist/subject sits centre frame surrounded by the swirl of forms - a teapot and a naked torso, a penguin and a puffer fish, a card trickster and a big tabby cat.

How do these things come together to describe a life? Maggi Hambling takes us on a tour of the picture and reflects on the nature of portraiture - from the great masters such as Rembrandt and Titian to her own celebrated work depicting her friend George Melly.

WED 21:30 Sunday Feature (b01nj7ff)
The Dragon with Two Tongues

Poet Gwyneth Lewis looks at the modern revival of the Welsh language.

Inspired by a radio lecture entitled Tynged yr Iaith (The Fate of the Language) by the playwright Saunders Lewis - which predicted the end of Welsh as a living language if radical steps were not taken - in October 1962 a group of people approached the main bridge in Aberystwyth and sat down on it. They refused to move, blocking traffic for several hours. It was the first action by the newly-formed Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (Welsh Language Society) and marked the beginning of a movement of language activism and campaigning in Wales that continues to the present day.

In the 50 years since Saunders Lewis's dire predictions, the status of the language has changed a great deal: Wales is now officially a bilingual nation, with a growing Welsh-language education sector and relatively flourishing Welsh-language publishing, film production, and music industries.

But while the number of Welsh speakers might be increasing, the number of organic Welsh-speaking communities is in decline.

Against this backdrop, bilingual poet Gwyneth Lewis examines this controversial modern revival of Welsh, finds out what living in a bilingual nation really means and assesses where the language project is going.

Featuring Dafydd Elis-Thomas, David Crystal, Geraint Talfan Davies, Deian Hopkin, Joe Dunthorne, Iain Sinclair, Simon Jenkins, Patrick McGuiness and others.

Producer: Martin Williams.

Taverner: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas - Gloria
Gesualdo: Ave, dulcissima Maria
Taverner: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas - Credo

Taverner: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas - Sanctus
Gesualdo: Maria, mater gratiae
Taverner: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas - Agnus dei

Tallis Scholars
Peter Phillips (conductor)

The Tallis Scholars are the choral group who, arguably, have done more than any other in this country to bring the sacred Renaissance masterpieces of the Golden Age back to life. In their 40th anniversary season they perform music by a composer who himself has an anniversary - Carlo Gesualdo, born 400 years ago this year. This 16th-century Neapolitan prince, notoriously, murdered his wife and her lover when he caught them in flagrante, and then - the story goes - spent the rest of his life in seclusion, atoning for this act of violence by composing a stream of sacred works whose highly-charged emotional expression shed a light on his own tortured state of mind. Alongside this intense, mannered music, a gloriously radiant setting of the mass by the English Tudor composer John Taverner - founding choirmaster of what is now Christ Church, Oxford, before falling from grace in the wake of his master - Cardinal Wolsey.

THU 21:45 Sunday Feature (b01nt18n)
Queen's University - Belfast Built

The past fifty years in Northern Ireland have often been turbulent but throughout this time the Queen's University of Belfast has always been at the core, encouraging intellectual thought and spirited discussion. William Crawley considers this period of its history and how the university tried in vain to remove itself from the political difficulties of Northern Ireland.

With contributions from past graduates and current staff William recalls the hey-day of the 1960s when Queen's found itself welcoming its first working class students like Paul Muldoon to a world where intellectual thought was prized and Queen's was the very essence of a British red brick institution. As 1968 took hold, and student radicalism swept the world, Queen's University students like Nick Ross were to take up the role of championing the rights of the individual and their civil liberties, carrying the flame for student activism challenging the society around them. However, in the 1970s as a young David Trimble and Alexander McCall Smith took up their first teaching posts, it was clear that the university could not resist the grip of the' Troubles' as it permeated every aspect of Northern Ireland life.

From the turbulent years of the seventies and the out of control eighties WIlliam Crawley tells the story of a university that became the very reflection of what it tried to stand apart from as staff, students and the university itself became embroiled in the chaos around it. From murders on campus to discrimination and alienation, to a very public row over its own identity he charts how Queen's University Belfast passed through an emotional rollercoaster few institutions would have survived to emerge stronger and leaner in the 21st century.

Producer: Regina Gallen.

Here's Looking at Me

Martin Gayford

Lucian Freud was intense and unwavering in his approach to portraiture. Here Martin Gayford, 'Man with a Blue Scarf', describes the experience of sitting for many hours for Freud over a period of 18 months.
In that time Gayford had ample opportunity to watch the artist in action - while he himself was being scrutinised in the finest detail, 'something between transcendental meditation and a visit to the barber's'.
Gayford explains how the portrait slowly came together, his reactions to the finished work and what he learned about Lucian Freud the man over their 'long dinner party for two' during its painting .

Germaine Greer

Paula Rego's portrait of Germaine Greer is one of the most popular in the National Portrait Gallery. Greer describes the friendship and respect that made the portrait possible. She wouldn't have sat for a portrait had it NOT been Paula, whose work Greer hugely admires.
Greer explains her misgivings about portraiture which she considers 'a minor art form at best...made by artists working in a self-limiting genre'. Worst of all are portraits of women - which are vapid or flattering or soulless.
What then was the key to the success of this portrait and how did it come about?
