Presented by Tom Service. As part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema season, Music Matters this week includes an interview with the Polish film composer Zbigniew Preisner, whose collaborations with the director Krzysztof Kieslowski on films such as Dekalog, The Double Life Of Veronique and The Three Colours Trliogy brought him international acclaim. Preisner's latest work, 'Diaries of Hope', premieres in London in October. And Tom is joined by the historian Mervyn Cooke and composer Jocelyn Pook to discuss the challenges facing classical composers in the film industry.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b03bfdk7)
Sound of Cinema: Farinelli - The Movie

As part of the Sound of Cinema season, Catherine Bott looks at the story and the soundtrack of the 1994 film "Farinelli" - a biopic of the great 18th century castrato and his colourful relationships with women, with his older brother and with the composers Handel and Porpora.

It's been a long time since we had a real life castrato singer in our midst, and the only recording we have of one is Alessandro Moreschi, who died in 1922 and was already at the end of his performing career when the rather primitive recordings were made. No-one today really possesses the vocal range of a castrato ? which could be as much as three and a half octaves, so, when Belgian film director Gerard Corbiau decided to turn Farinelli's colourful life into a full-length biopic, he charged music director Christophe Rousset with coming up with a way to create as near to the castrato sound as he could.

The solution was to combine the voices of Polish soprano Ewa Mallas-Godlewska and American countertenor Derek Lee Ragin, so that Derek would sing the lower passages and Ewa the highest. During the precision editing, the voices of the two singers were relayed, from the notes to the highest, in order to cover the tessitura and also demonstrate the castrato's virtuosity. The resulting tape included nearly 3000 editing points. It was then necessary to "homogenise" the two singers' timbres in order to give Farinelli his own voice, both new and, at the same time, respectful of the original voices.

The film soundtrack includes performances by the "combined" voices with Christophe Rousset's own ensemble Les Talens Lyriques, in glorious music by Handel, Porpora, Hasse, Pergolesi and Farinelli's own older brother (and protagonist of the film), Riccardo Broschi.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b03bfdkj)
Return of the Monster from the Id

In 1956 Louis and Bebe Barron birthed the world's first electronic film score with their unearthly soundtrack to M.G.M.'s Forbidden Planet. Ken Hollings considers their act of creation and wonders if the Monster from the Id can ever be re-awakened?

Forbidden Planet was M.G.M.'s lavish leap into science fiction. Fusing Shakespeare's Tempest, pop Freud and pulp SF. Fleetingly Hollywood and the electronic avant-garde embraced to make unworldly music inspired by the new science of cybernetics. The Barrons were close associates of John Cage and at the cutting edge of new technology and music. Their "electronic tonalities", as credited on screen in deference to an anxious musicians union, were groundbreaking for both experimental music film scoring.

In the cramped space of their Greenwich village apartment the Barron's poured current through homemade circuits made up of valves, oscillators and wires. Music, sound effects and character were all arrived at by wiring, art and sweat. The roaring Monster from the Id, the bubbling sounds of Planet Altair IV and the vast caverns of glowing, ancient Krell technology. Even the Krell music, anthem to a long dead race of technologically advanced beings.

Audiences and filmmakers were startled by this great musical experiment. It remains one of the most perfect fusions of film and music, defining the way we thought the future would sound. In rare recordings Bebe and Louis Barron relate their adventures in sound. Meanwhile, somewhere near Stoke, Ken Hollings challenges music boffin Phil Taylor to a hardwired search for the secrets of Krell music and the electronic heartbeat of the Monster from the Id.

Producer: Mark Burman
Electronic tonalities: Phil Taylor and Donald MacDonald

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0112czq)
Sound of Cinema: Mike Leigh

Michael Berkeley's guest this week is the filmmaker, writer and playwright Mike Leigh, who began his career in the theatre and with TV dramas such as 'Abigail's Party' and 'Nuts in May', and went to to produce a string of original, award-winning films including 'Life is Sweet', 'Career Girls', the Gilbert and Sullivan biopic 'Topsy Turvy', 'Naked', 'Secrets and Lies', 'Happy Go Lucky', 'Vera Drake', and most recently, 'Another Year'. Many of his films involve an element of improvisation, and Mike Leigh has launched the careers of an impressive array of distinguished British actors, including Alison Steadman. Brenda Blethyn, David Thewlis, Sally Hawkins, Liz Smith and Jane Horrocks. His play 'Ecstasy' is currently enjoying a West End revival.

Mike Leigh's choices begin with two extracts by Gilbert and Sullivan. He starts with a comic duet from 'Ruddigore' (I once was a very abandoned person)l, and goes on to 'The World is but a broken toy' from 'Princess Ida', which he loves for its sentimental charm. Mike Leigh sees Mozart's 'Cosi fan tutte' as essentially a comic opera, and has selected the gorgeous trio 'Soave sia il vento' from Act I. Then comes another facet of comic opera - the Doll's Song from Act II of Offenbach's 'The Tales of Hoffmann', which he used as the background to the brothel scene in 'Topsy Turvy'. There's also the original 1928 recording of the Ballad of Mack the Knife from Weill/Brecht's 'Threepenny Opera', an extract from a film score by Shostakovich, Jeanne Moreau singing 'Le Tourbillon de la vie' from Truffaut's famous film 'Jules et Jim'; 'Blue in Green' from Miles Davis' 'Kind of Blue', and finally the Rondo from Beethoven's Violin Concerto (Mike Leigh used Beethoven to great effect in 'Abigail's Party').


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b03bfjql)
Sound of Cinema: Tous Les matins du monde

The revered French actor Gérard Depardieu is frequently in the news these days and not always for his acting. In the early 1990s Depardieu gave a brilliantly nuanced performance as the 17th/18th-century composer and viol player Marin Marais. The acclaimed film "Tous les matins du monde" was one of the few movies to celebrate and popularise early music. Lucie Skeaping remembers the film and considers some of the music.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b03bfjqv)
Sound of Cinema: Composing for Hollywood

Once upon a time Hollywood composers were classically schooled European maestros. Today many of the most successful ones are drawn from the world of pop and rock. In this documentary journalist Jonathan Coffey is in Los Angeles to meet some of the biggest names in the industry to assess the business of writing for the movies.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b03bfjqx)
The Father

August Strindberg's notorious drama from 1890 was his response to the most famous gender drama of the day, Ibsen's A Doll's House and charts the explosive power-struggle between a married couple.

This new version by Laurie Slade makes the The Father an uncompromising and psychologically astute portrayal of the battle of the sexes in a 19th-century middle-class marriage, with surprising insights into issues such as gender, the meaning of marriage, parental attitudes to child education, and the conflicts between science and religion.

This production was originally staged at the Belgrade Theatre, Coventry with award-winning actors Joe Dixon and Katy Stephens as the Captain and his wife Laura.

An uneasy stand-off exists between an army Captain and his wife. A disagreement over the future of their daughter Bertha triggers an all-out war. Laura will stop at nothing to gain control of her daughter's education and when she suggests to the Captain that he may not actually be the girl's father at all, she sets a chain of events in motion, from which nobody escapes unharmed.

A Unique Production for BBC Radio 3.

Sound of Cinema: British Film Music

The Early British Sound Film: Bliss, Britten and Walton

Donald Macleod celebrates a quintessentially British legacy of film music - from Vaughan Williams to Nitin Sawhney, via Walton, The Beatles, Nyman, Britten, John Dankworth, Malcolm Arnold, Elisabeth Lutyens, John Barry...and many more...

Thought film music was all about the glitz and glamour of Hollywood? Think again. Ever since the dawn of the sound film, some of the greatest film scores have been created on this side of the Atlantic - by composers who often juggled brilliant careers in the concert hall with the demands of writing for the silver screen.

This week, writer and film music expert David Huckvale joins Donald Macleod for a journey through more than eight decades of uniquely British film music - blending a host of the most iconic movie music of the 20th century (including "Scott of the Antarctic", "Henry V", "A Hard Day's Night" and "Dr No") with ghoulish treats from Hammer Horror, comic escapades from Ealing Studios, and genre-bending jazz, rock and electronic-influenced scores by John Barry, Michael Nyman and Nitin Sawhney.

Beginning with the grandees of the 20th century British concert hall - Vaughan Williams, Bliss and Walton - David Huckvale and Donald Macleod examine how they translated their unique musical gifts to the craft of writing for the movies, whilst exploring the unique collaboration between WH Auden, Benjamin Britten and John Grierson's GPO Film Unit in "Night Mail's" lesser-known, but no less remarkable, sibling: the social history documentary "Coal Face".

But there's plenty of opportunity to hear from many less well-known names whose genius was expressed on the big screen, with music by the two most prolific film composers of the mid 20th century - William Alwyn and Malcolm Arnold; the 'forgotten hero' of British film music, Oscar-winner Brian Easdale; and a celebration of Ealing Studios' composers, including John Ireland, Gerrard Schurmann and Benjamin Frankel.

As pop looms on the horizon in the 1960s, with new sounds from John Barry, The Beatles and even Cliff Richard (!), Donald and David take a spooky turn to explore how Hammer Horror catalysed uniquely a uniquely British avant-garde...with electronic experiments by Tristram Cary, and creepy atonal sounds from Elisabeth Lutyens and James Bernard.

Lastly, in the week's final episode, we explore the unique, exciting cross-fertilisation in British film music over the last few decades, with scores drawing equally from classical, jazz, rock and world music genres by Richard Rodney Bennett, Michael Nyman, Patrick Doyle and Nitin Sawhney.

---

In this first programme, Donald is joined in the studio by film music expert and writer David Huckvale to explore film works by two grandees of the British concert hall, Sirs Arthur Bliss and William Walton, and discuss the hugely important influence of the conductor and musical svengali James Muir Matheson.

Walter Leigh's pioneering score for the 1934 documentary "Song Of Ceylon" provides the backdrop to a unique complete performance of WH Auden and Benjamin Britten's score to the 1935 social history documentary "Coal Face" - a portrayal of the 1930s coal industry, complete with highly original sound effects and musical experiments. There's also space for one of the most popular and enduring examples of early British film music: Richard Addinsell's heartstring-tugging "Warsaw Concerto", and the programme ends with Walton's famous music to Laurence Olivier's wartime adaptation of Shakespeare's "Henry V".

Beginning in 1994 with Ladybird Ladybird, they have worked together on titles including Sweet Sixteen, My Name is Joe, Looking for Eric, and the Palme d'Or-winning The Wind that Shakes the Barley. Currently working on a new release for 2014 being filmed in Ireland, they take time out to talk to Tom about the role of music in Ken's films - how it can make the specific universal and bring to the fore real emotions rather than false ones. #BBCSoundofCinema.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b03bfm1c)
Night Waves at ZSL London Zoo

Matthew Sweet examines the zoo as a cultural institution

In the first of three special programmes from ZSL London Zoo, Matthew Sweet examines the Zoo as cultural institution.

From Royal menagerie to scientific institution, from family day out to centre for wildlife conservation, the Zoo has presented itself in different ways over the years. Matthew discusses the Zoo's current incarnation as conservation centre with ZSL's Zoological Director David Field and head of the Tiger Conservation Programme Sarah Christie.

The Zoo's Lubetkin Penguin Pool, 1934, lays claim to being one of the first public buildings in Britain to be built in the then-new Modernist style. David Field takes Matthew and the architecture critic Ellis Woodman for a tour of the Zoo discussing the peculiarities of designing housing for animals.

Produced by Luke Mulhall.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03bfm1f)
Praising Powell and Pressburger

The Red Shoes

Continuing the Sound of Cinema season, ballerina, writer and broadcaster Deborah Bull gives a dancer's take on Powell and Pressburger's best-known film, the 1948 classic 'The Red Shoes', starring Moira Shearer, and based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, together known as The Archers, were one of the most influential and audacious film-makers of the 1930s and 40s. Their groundbreaking works include: 'The Red Shoes', 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp', 'A Matter of Life and Death' and 'Black Narcissus'.

Writen and read by Deborah Bull. Bull joined The Royal Ballet in 1981 and became a Principal Ballerina in 1992. After her 20-year career in ballet, she went on to become Creative Director of the Royal Opera House, as well as an author and broadcaster. She is currently Director of Cultural Partnerships at King's College, London.
Producer: Justine Willett.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03bfm1h)
Rudresh Mahanthappa's Gamak

A second chance to hear one of Jazz on 3's gig highlights of 2013: Indian-American saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa in performance with his quartet, Gamak, at Ronnie Scott's.

Mahanthappa is second-generation Indian-American and his music reflects this heritage: the classical Carnatic tradition of southern India is absorbed into a progressive jazz language that takes in complex, muscular rhythmic patterns as well as hip-hop grooves. In Gamak he casts his net even wider, pulling in Americana, go-go and heavy metal along the way too. The band's name comes from the south Indian term for melodic ornamentation, so it's fitting that he's joined in this group by guitarist Dave 'Fuze' Fiuczynski, known for his intricate, microtonal playing and for whom Mahanthappa wrote much of the music. The band is completed by longtime collaborators Francois Moutin (bass) and Dan Weiss on drums.

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

Sound of Cinema: British Film Music

The 1940s: Alwyn, Easdale and Vaughan Williams

Donald Macleod is joined in the studio by film music expert David Huckvale to explore the legacy of one of the most prolific film composers of the mid-20th century: William Alwyn, who juggled writing over a hundred film scores with a distinguished career in the concert hall.

The pair introduce an excerpt from Vaughan Williams's Sinfonia Antarctica - drawn from his music to the 1948 film Scott Of The Antarctic - plus a famous lollipop, Charles Williams's The Dream of Olwen, performed fabulously by Liberace...

And there's a rare chance to hear from the first score ever to win an Oscar for Best Original Score - written not by Vaughan Williams, Bliss, Walton or Alwyn - but by the "lost hero" of British film music, Brian Easdale; a man seemingly written out of British musical history.

The tiny cathedral city of St. Asaph is home to the North Wales International Music Festival and venue for this evening's live piano recital from Peter Donohoe. All the works in his intriguing programme are linked by their appellation 'Opus 1'. As Peter himself points out, these pieces don't represent the composers' very earliest efforts but their first published music; their first forays into the professional world of composition.

Peter invites us to explore with him music that reveals the ambition and freshness of composers at the beginnings of their long and distinguished careers; full of youthful originality and containing fascinating hints of the mature artists they would become.

Prokofiev: - Sonata No.1 in F minor, Op.1
Bartok: Rhapsody, Op.1

8.10 Interval

Berg: Sonata , Op.1
Schumann: Abegg Variations,Op.1
Brahms: Sonata No.1 in C major, Op.1

The tiny cathedral city of St. Asaph is home to the North Wales International Music Festival and venue for this evening's live piano recital from Peter Donohoe. All the works in his intriguing programme are linked by their appellation 'Opus 1'. As Peter himself points out, these pieces don't represent the composers' very earliest efforts but their first published music; their first forays into the professional world of composition.

Peter invites us to explore with him music that reveals the ambition and freshness of composers at the beginnings of their long and distinguished careers; full of youthful originality and containing fascinating hints of the mature artists they would become.


TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b03bfqln)
Loyalty, Herodotus, Shunga, Martin Parr

In Night Waves this evening Philip Dodd will be exploring the idea of loyalty. In the light of recent revelations about feuding in the Labour party does it make sense to demand or even expect loyalty from people in public life? Two former newspaper editors, Andreas Whittam Smith and David Yelland will be joining Philip to give their opinions. Also in the programme the historian, Tom Holland, will be sharing his passion for Herodotus; Tim Clark and Rosina Buckland will be discussing the evolution of the Japanese erotic print; and the Magnum photographer, Martin Parr will be paying tribute to one of his gurus - the late Tony Ray Jones.

Producer: Zahid Warley.

Praising Powell and Pressburger

The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp

Continuing the Sound of Cinema season, Ian Christie on the 1943 Powell and Pressburger film The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, a film that has been called Britain's answer to Citizen Kane.

Ian Christie knew Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger well, and was instrumental in bringing their films to a new audience in the 1980s. Here he looks at their unusual relationship through one of their greatest films.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, together known as The Archers, were one of the most influential and audacious film-makers of the 1930s and 40s. Their groundbreaking works include: 'The Red Shoes', 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp', 'A Matter of Life and Death' and 'Black Narcissus'.

Ian Christie is an acclaimed film scholar, who has written several works on the films of Powell and Pressburger.

Producer: Justine Willett.

The 1950s: Ealing Comedy, Arnold and Winds of Change

Donald Macleod and film music expert David Huckvale introduce music by one of British film's most versatile and industrious composers, as we hear excerpts from Malcolm Arnold's famous score to David Lean's "Bridge On The River Kwai" and "Hobson's Choice".

The pair also explore the musical legacy of one of British film's most famous producers - Ealing Studios - and the huge array of composers they commissioned, from elder statesmen like Vaughan Williams, Frankel and Ireland, to budding young voices like Gerrard Schurmann. We end with the winds of change, as popular music begins to challenge the classical status quo - with John Dankworth's sultry jazz score to "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning".

Tormented by forbidden desires, Byron's Manfred takes to the mountains to battle his demons. Tchaikovsky knew exactly how he felt, and poured everything into fifty minutes of the rawest, most personal and most passionate music he ever wrote. It's certainly a powerful contrast to the stirring Marche Slave and the jewel-like Rococo Variations, here played by Daniel Müller-Schott.

He's best known however for his bright and brash films Romeo and Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and The Great Gatsby which was released earlier this year. On all three he has worked with Glasgow based composer Craig Armstrong who studied with Cornelius Cardew and began his career as in-house composer at the city's Tron Theatre. Baz and Craig explain how their creative relationship works and reflect on the role of music in Baz's films. #BBCSoundofCinema.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b03bfqlx)
Zaha Hadid, French Cinema Music, Cynicism

With Rana Mitter who meets Zaha Hadid as her new building opens in London. The influential architect has created a new wing for the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park by transforming a 19th century gunpowder magazine into 21st century curves and squiggles. She reflects on how the design seeks to fuse her need for innovation with respect for the historic site.

Rana Mitter continues the Sound of Cinema Season by talking to critics Ian Christie and Muriel Zagha about french cinema. From Rene Clair's 1930 film Sous les toits de Paris to Jean Luc Godard's Prénom Carmen, how important has music been in creating France's distinctive cinema reputation?

Finally cultural debate with philosopher Julian Baggini and classicist Richard Seaford on whether the prevalence of cynicism towards the public sphere may turn out to be a positive rather than a negative. Rana Mitter hears how the original cynic's emphasis on nature over culture may encourage us to alter our expectations and move society in a fundamentally different and healthier direction.

Sound of Cinema: British Film Music

The 1960s: Hammer Horror, Bond and The Beatles

Donald Macleod is joined once more by film music expert David Huckvale to explore two completely different musical genres that dominated 1960s British film. On one hand, jazz and pop were beginning to infuse some of the most innovative and popular movies of the decade ? from The Beatles' "Hard Day's Night" to Monty Norman's famous "Bond Theme" and John Barry's music to "The Ipcress File".

And yet in a studio just off Regent Street, ghoulish forces were stirring... Hammer Horror provided a unique environment for British composers to experiment with the latest ideas from the European avant-garde, safe in the knowledge that audiences would accept their harsh dissonances and bizarre soundworlds in the context of terror. David Huckvale discusses the legacy of musical scarers-in-chief Elisabeth Lutyens, Tristram Cary, Benjamin Frankel ? and the 'godfather' of British horror music, James Bernard.

Live from City Halls in Glasgow

Presented by Jamie MacDougall

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with Chief Conductor Donald Runnicles, perform two of the favourite pieces in the repertoire: Elgar's Cello Concerto and Mozart's Requiem. They are joined by international soloists and the National Youth Choir of Scotland.

Donald Runnicles, conductor

Mozart's unfinished Requiem is one of the best-loved masterpieces of classical choral music. But strip away the rumours, legends and the layers of alterations, and it turns out that the piece we usually hear is only half the story. Donald Runnicles directs the acclaimed National Youth Choir of Scotland and a quartet of world-class soloists in a revelatory new completion of the Requiem prepared, with a creator's insight, by the great Canadian Mozartian Robert Levin. Hear this transcendent music with new ears - and savour the intense commitment that the young American cellist Alisa Weilerstein brings to Elgar's war requiem of a cello concerto.

Mozart: Requiem

It's not possible to know precisely what Mozart's plans were for the Requiem he left incomplete on his death in 1791. At the request of his widow, Constanze, a completion was made by the composer's pupil Franz Süssmayr but lack of physical evidence means its proximity to Mozart's intentions cannot be proved. Two hundred years after the first completion, the musicologist, academic and performer Robert Levin recompleted the Requiem, aiming to enhance Süssmayr's version rather than replace it. Stephen Johnson examines the relationship between the two versions.

Cate Blanchett takes the lead in Woody Allen's latest offering 'Blue Jasmine', portrait of
a wealthy New York socialite's decline into alcohol, lies and self-deception. Blanchett joins Samira to discuss her preparation for the role.

As the late Brazilian artist Mira Schendel gets a first major retrospective at London's Tate Modern, Samira talks to art critic Joanne Harwood about this intellectual European woman who has iconic status in Sao Paulo but remains relatively unknown outside South America.

Maxim Leo was 19 and living in East Berlin when the Wall came down in 1989. Both of his grandfathers had been prominent Communists but in his new memoir Red Love he finds that that meant very different things in each case. He joins Samira to discuss the compromises involved in living in the DDR.

And did the great works of Donatello, Fra Filippo Lippi, and Michelangelo spring into being despite the social and political conditions of the times, or rather because of them? Renaissance scholar Alexander Lee argues we view the Renaissance through rose-tinted glasses. He joins Samira along with John Gallagher of Cambridge University and Radio 3 New Generation Thinker, and Sarah Dunant whose novels include 'Blood and Beauty' about the Borgias.

Produced by Luke Mulhall.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b03bfqnl)
Praising Powell and Pressburger

Black Narcissus

"It is all done by suggestion, but eroticism is in every frame and image from beginning to end. It is a film full of wonderful performances and passion just below the surface, which finally, at the end of the film, erupts", Michael Powell

Continuing the Sound of Cinema season, film critic Peter Bradshaw looks at Powell and Pressburger's sensuous 1947 melodrama, 'Black Narcissus'.

Set in a convent in an isolated Himalayan valley, in which tensions are running high, Black Narcissus was based on the 1939 novel of the same name by Rumer Godden. It stars Deborah Kerr, Kathleen Byron and Jean Simmons, and was described by Michael Powell described as the most erotic film he ever made.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, together known as The Archers, were one of the most influential and audacious film-makers of the 1930s and 40s. Their groundbreaking works include: 'The Red Shoes', 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp', 'A Matter of Life and Death' and 'Black Narcissus'.

Peter Bradshaw is the Guardian's film critic.

Producer: Justine Willett.

Sound of Cinema: British Film Music

Remixes and Reimaginings: RR Bennett, Nyman and Sawhney

The last few decades have seen a previously unimaginable diversity of styles in British film music - with award-winning rock, dance and electronica scores by Pink Floyd, Massive Attack and Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood - and music that increasingly blurs lines between genres by figures such as Michael Nyman and Nitin Sawhney.

Amidst all of this, Richard Rodney Bennett's extraordinary ability across a vast array of styles, from avant-garde modernism to jazz to quintessential British classicism, made him one of the most sought-after British composers in film.

Film music expert David Huckvale joins Donald Macleod for a final time to discuss his legacy - and the extraordinary crosspollination of musical genres in British film music at the beginning of the 21st century.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03bft93)
City of London Sinfonia - Britten, Copland, Shostakovich

The City of London Sinfonia, directed by Michael Collins, play Britten's Serenade and Shostakovich's 14th Symphony.

Live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Britten: Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings
Britten (arr.Colin Matthews): Movements for a Clarinet Concerto (second movement)
Copland: Clarinet Concerto

8.15: Interval

8.35
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 14

Evelina Dobracheva, soprano
Graeme Broadbent, bass
Ronan Busfield, tenor
Stephen Stirling, horn
Michael Collins, conductor, clarinet

Britten and Copland wrote their clarinet concertos for the American 'King of Swing' Benny Goodman. Britten's original score was impounded by US Immigration, as he was being watched by the FBI, but it was eventually finished by Colin Matthews.
The Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, composed in 1947, was one of the first pieces Britten wrote on his return from wartime America. Setting English poems on the ideas of night, sleep and the 'cloak of evil', it shares similar themes with Shostakovich's Fourteenth Symphony, a work filled with imagery of death and destruction.

FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03bfqv2)
Sound of Cinema: AR Rahman Profile, 2013 Darbar Festival

Lopa Kothari with a profile of Indian film composer A R Rahman, plus highlights from last weekend's Darbar Festival of Indian classical music, including the sitar of Budhaditya Mukherjee and the voice of Sudha Ragunathan.

In the first hour of the programme, as part of the Sound of Cinema season, Lopa Kothari meets A R Rahman, who brought about a revolution in Indian cinema in the 1990s with music that introduced fresh elements from Indian traditional and sacred music, plus western pop and classical. Rahman also insisted on a state-of-the-art approach to sound quality, and two decades on, the technical standards in Indian films and in urban Indian cinemas are the equal of anywhere in the world. Emerging from the Tamil film industry, Rahman moved to Bollywood and then went on to popularise Indian film music to a global audience, not least with his song 'Jai Ho' from 'Slumdog Millionaire'. Rahman is still based in the Tamil city of Chennai, and Lopa Kothari visits his studio, and also Rahman's own music conservatory, where he is seeking to train a new generation of orchestral and traditional Indian musicians to perform for Indian films in the future.

The second hour is devoted to two performances from the Darbar Festival, with leading performers from both north and south India.
