Verdi 200: Verdi the Opera Director - the Composer's Other Artistic Side

Verdi 200
Throughout his career of nearly 30 operas, Giuseppe Verdi developed an interest in the genre well beyond the world of sound to encompass other aspects of the spectacle on stage. That he was able to take control of the latter as he gained fame and strengthened his position around Europe remains a relatively unknown and obscure side of his artistic life - until now. With the help of valuable archive material and visiting opera houses and institutions in Milan, Venice and Parma - key places for Verdi - opera scholar Susan Rutherford explains how he brought things full circle, completing the journey from composer to 'director', a role he was crucial to develop in 19th-century Italy. This documentary shows how he intervened in the making of staging designs, the latest scenic effects, and - not least - the acting and delivery techniques of his singers as he aimed towards the perfect fusion between music and drama. His role of 'director' was particularly prominent, this programme shows, in his last three works: Aida, Otello and Falstaff. With contributions from, among others, singer Placido Domingo, opera director Graham Vick, the Superintendent of Venice's La Fenice Theatre Cristiano Chiarot, and the director of the Istituto Nazionale di Studi Verdiani in Parma, Emilio Sala.

SAT 19:30 Opera on 3 (b03cn8qc)
Verdi 200: Il trovatore

Verdi 200: Il Trovatore recorded at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich earlier this year with Jonas Kaufmann making his debut in the role of Manrico and Anja Harteros as Leonora. The production was by Olivier Py and drew a lot of criticism for its modern approach.

Jonas Kaufmann one of the world's leading tenors continues to expand his repertoire into some of the heavier Italian roles with Manrico, the troubadour of the opera's title. He's joined once again by one of his regular collaborators, the German soprano Anja Harteros, as Leonora, the subject of his affection.

Il Trovatore was one of Verdi's most successful operas even during his lifetime. In the three years following its premiere in 1853 it received more than 200 productions worldwide. And today it remains one of the most popular operas in the repertoire. He wrote it during a period which also saw the composition of Rigoletto and La Traviata, so by the time Verdi was forty he was at the height of his powers.

The story is sometimes parodied for the melodramatic and seemingly outrageous nature of some of the plot. Salvatore Cammarano wrote the libretto but died before its completion so Verdi found a new collaborator in the Neapolitan poet Leone Bardare.

Manrico is an enemy of the Count di Luna, a nobleman and soldier. They are also both in love with Leonora a noblewoman who returns Manrico's love. A gypsy, Azucena, is also the Count's enemy as his father killed her mother. She wants to avenge her mother's death so years before has abducted one of the Count's sons. This is Manrico who thinks that Azucena is his mother, though he learns she is not during the opera.

Manrico and Azucena are eventually imprisoned by the Count and Leonora offers to give herself to him to secure their release. However she takes poison and dies in Manrico's arms. When Di Luna finds her dead he orders Manrico's execution and he's taken away. Only then does Azucena tell Di Luna that Manrico was actually his brother.

SAT 22:30 Between the Ears (b03cn8qf)
Shadowplay

Slow Movement: Everything, Nothing, Harvey Keitel

Shadowplay offers a four-part 'symphony of voices' to celebrate 20 years of Between the Ears. It explores the shadows that may fall between the appearance of things and their reality. Making use of the full palette available to the radio producer - documentary, fiction, music, pure sound - four feature-makers address our values, our identities, our romantic inclinations and our sense of worth.

2. Slow Movement:
Everything, Nothing, Harvey Keitel

In the middle of one of the busiest cities in the world, the city of lights and dreams and distractions, a man sits down and tries to meditate. Learning to meditate is hard. Emptying one's mind, focusing entirely on one's breath is hard. And it gets even harder for the man with the realisation that he's sitting next to the famous actor Harvey Keitel.

Radio 3's showcase for adventurous feature-making was launched in October 1993 with a 'piece for radio', by the composer Ian Gardiner. 'Monument', which was conceived as a kind of London symphony, received the prestigious Prix Italia the following year.

Produced by Pejk Malinovski.
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.

Verdi 200: Renata Scotto, Bocklin paintings, Zelenka Magnificat

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03cn99q)
Rory Kinnear

Michael Berkeley's guest is the actor Rory Kinnear.

Rory Kinnear is in danger of becoming a national treasure. Audiences across the world know him thanks to two Bond movies, where he plays M15 officer Bill Tanner. He was the journalist in the TV thriller Southcliffe, he was Denis Thatcher in the Margaret Thatcher TV biopic, he's the straight man to Count Arthur Strong... And he's established a reputation as one of our finest Shakespearean actors - his performance as Hamlet at the National Theatre was screened across the UK as part of the National's 50th anniversary celebrations. This summer he played an unforgettably chilling Iago to Adrian Lester's Othello, again at the National. And he's just turned playwright - his first play, The Herd, directed by Howard Davies, has opened in London.

He's a difficult actor to pin down. But in conversation with Michael Berkeley he reveals the man behind the theatrical mask. He talks movingly about his father, the actor Roy Kinnear, who was killed during a film stunt, and how he kept sane after the accident by playing the piano. Rory still plays in rehearsal rooms across the world, grabbing his chance at the piano while the other actors eat lunch. He reveals too that music is the key to his relationship with his sister, who was born with profound disabilities; Rory composes music for her, and plays songs as a way of communicating with her. He works increasingly with musicians, at the Proms last year, and in recordings. And, be warned, every morning he walks across London listening to music on his huge headphones - and singing along at the top of his voice.

Music choices include Mark Padmore singing Bach, Haydn's Trumpet Concerto, a Beethoven violin sonata, Erroll Garner, and Big Rock Candy Mountain.

First broadcast 13/10/2013.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b01jxs5p)
Greek Myths

From the early years of the Renaissance, composers portrayed subjects from Greek mythology. These stories provided particular inspiration as the new operatic genre took hold in the early 17th century. The 18th century saw the philosophical revolution of the Enlightenment spread throughout Europe and accompanied by a certain reaction against Greek myth, there was a tendency to insist on the scientific and philosophical achievements of Ancient Greece. The myths, however, continued to provide an important source of raw material for dramatists and composers. Lucie Skeaping introduces a diverse selection of early music inspired by these Greek myths, including works by Monteverdi, Handel, Purcell, Cavalli, Rameau and Gluck.

First broadcast in June 2012.

Rain

The rainstorm is an invitation to pause and step outside the normal stream of everyday time and to reflect or remember; for some an irritant, for others an opportunity and for others a reminder of the power of nature or God and the impotence of man.

In this edition of Words and Music Tim McMullan and Emily Taaffe read poems and prose by John Clare, Thomas Hardy and Emily Dickinson with music from Sibelius, Finzi and Debussy.

Producer: Natalie Steed.


SUN 18:30 Sunday Feature (b01pmf8c)
Verdi 200: Viva Verdi

No piece of classical music evokes stronger images of Italian nationalistic fervour than Va pensiero (the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves) from Verdi's 1842 opera Nabucco, undoubtedly the best known of the composer's "patriotic" choruses. For more than a century this piece has been treated by Italians with the mixture of condescension and throaty awe that marks a true national monument, and yet there is no evidence to support the idea that Verdi intended it as a rallying call of Italian nationalism, or indeed that it was received as such until long after Italian reunification, in 1861.

As part of Verdi 200, taking as a starting point Verdi's funeral in 1901 at which some 300,000 people gathered to pay their respects, Professor Roger Parker traces the complex reception history of Verdi's so-called "Risorgimento operas" and asks what it can tell us about the function of opera in Italian society in the 19th century, its role in the cultural nation-building that took place after 1861, and indeed Verdi himself. Why is it that Verdi's music has been appropriated by radically different groups, from the Fascist regime in the 1940s to the Lega Nord (the North League for the Independence of Padania) today, and what can this tell us about the fragile state of modern Italy?

With contributions from conductor Sir Mark Elder, director Graham Vick, musicologists Emanuele Senici and Susan Rutherford, Milan-based novelist and commentator Tim Parks, and Lucy Riall, a specialist in the Risorgimento.

Producer Emma Bloxham.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03cnbf4)
Mozart String Quintets

Quatuor Ebene and Antoine Tamestit (viola) play String Quintets by Mozart together with the newly commissioned String Quintet by Bruno Mantovani.

Mozart: String Quintet in C, K515
Bruno Mantovani: String Quintet (UK premiere)

8.50pm - Part 2:
Mozart: String Quintet in G minor, K516

Quatuor Ebène
Antoine Tamestit (viola)

Live from the Wigmore Hall, London
Presented by Catherine Bott

Mozart gave the string quintet a grandeur of its own, and these two works, written in the same year, were most likely written as a contrasting pair. The C major work has a sense of nobility about it, while the G minor piece is more poignant. The young French composer Bruno Mantovani has had a meteoric rise to prominence in recent years, after studying in Paris with Pierre Boulez. His quintet has an autobiographical nature.


SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b007fk4k)
Sunday at Sant' Agata

By Ronald Frame

It is August 1893. The great Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi is spending the summer at Sant'Agata, his country house and extensive estate near Busseto in the Duchy of Parma. He is a few days short of his eightieth birthday. With him are his wife of forty-five years and former star soprano, Giuseppina; and his later muse Teresa Stolz, another star soprano.

Verdi's opera 'Falstaff' has recently been triumphantly performed in Milan and Rome. It's a kind of swansong, a homage to composers from Mozart to Bizet to Wagner, and to one of his favourite writers, Shakespeare. Preparations are advanced for a production at the Opéra-Comique in Paris. Verdi's librettist Arrigo Boito, who has been supervising the translation work, has submitted his progress report.

Verdi intends a quiet day: a siesta, a little work on the translation, supper on the terrace, perhaps a game of billiards, and a walk in the twilight with the dogs. But then two students arrive unannounced, intent on bearding Italy's national hero in his den. And in the garden that so reminds Verdi of Shakespeare's Forest of Arden, the rumbustious spirit of old Pot Belly himself, Sir John Falstaff, is intent on some genial mischief.

Pianist, Andy Massey.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b03cnr00)
Captain Phillips, David Thomson, David Greig's The Events

Matthew Sweet presents.

Tom Hanks stars as Captain Phillips in the new film from Paul Greengrass, which tells the true story of American cargo ship hijacked by Somali pirates who take the captain hostage. Writer Kevin Jackson and Anja Shortland, who has studied the economics of Somali piracy, discuss whether the film gives a true picture of not only the events but their underlying causes.

Film historian David Thomson discusses the most memorable moments from 70 films, covering a hundred-year span and including films from Britain, France, Japan and Italy as well as from the United States.

On the opening night in London of David Greig's play, inspired by the Norwegian massacre perpetrated by Anders Breivik, Matthew Sweet discusses the possibility of forgiveness in the face of atrocity: with forensic psychiatrist Cleo Van Velsen, the priest and broadcaster Giles Fraser and the production's director Ramin Gray.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03cnd70)
If Walls Could Talk

Susan McKay

Journalist and author Susan McKay returns to Londonderry to explore what 'City of Culture' status has meant to the place of her birth. Known as both Derry and Londonderry, the walled city became the inaugural UK City of Culture in 2013, and Susan examines what rebranding and reimagining has meant to a place that endured some of the worst episodes of the 'troubles' throughout her school days. As its search for identity continues, what has the city gained from its year in the limelight, and has anyone beyond its ancient walls noticed?


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01slm5p)
Tomasz Stańko and his New York Quartet, Gary Burton in Session

Jez Nelson presents Polish trumpeter Tomasz Stańko and his New York Quartet in concert at London's Barbican.

There has always been a sense of the 'poetic' to much of the music made by Poland's most famous living jazz musician. Whether in the raft of acclaimed ECM releases Stańko has produced over the last twenty years or in the pioneering free music he made with Krzysztof Komeda in Krakow in the '60s, his is a music in which space, lyricism and a concern for creating atmospheres remains paramount.

With his latest New York Quartet project, Stańko cites the poetry of fellow Pole Wisława Szymborska as providing the "ideas, insights and impetus" behind the new compositions. And while much of that inspiration brings about stanzas of Stańko's trademark brooding trumpet, there is fire and freedom in his playing and in that of band members Thomas Morgan (bass), Gerald Cleaver (drums) and David Virelles (piano) that means this poetry is full of varied meter, rhythm and tone.

Also on the programme, an exclusive session from one of the greats of jazz vibraphone, Gary Burton, in duet with guitarist Julian Lage.

Live from Milton Court, London

In one of the opening concerts from London's newest concert hall, the BBC Singers perform a programme of American music which journeys from the Biblical beginnings of time to the end of the world as imagined in the apocalypse of the post-nuclear age. Aaron Copland's tender re-telling of the Creation story is a much-loved 20th-century choral classic, while The Desert Music contemplates the devastation of nuclear war. In between, three characteristically richly-scored works by one of the most charismatic figures on the contemporary choral scene: composer-conductor Eric Whitacre. David Hill conducts the BBC Singers, specialist contemporary music ensemble Endymion, and leading young mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston.


TUE 20:10 Discovering Music (b03cnn8m)
Reich's The Desert Music

By the early 1980s, Steve Reich had won acclaim for the sensuous, almost trance-like brand of minimalism of "Music For 18 Musicians" and "Drumming". Yet "The Desert Music", from 1983, marked a new direction in his career.

Setting William Carlos Williams' adaptation of the Ancient Greek poet Theocritus, the text explores the idea of deserts as places of creativity, delirious visions, love - and destruction. But more than this, Reich's work for voices and ensemble captures Cold War anxieties over nuclear armageddon - as Stephen Johnson discovers...

Paul Klee, US Shutdown, Catherine Merridale, Man Booker Prize, National Theatre

Philip Dodd discusses the announcement of the winner of this year's Man Booker Prize with Sarah Churchwell, the final year before US writers will be included.

Susannah Clapp will be in the studio to discuss Rufus Norris, the director revealed today as the new Artistic Director of the National Theatre.

With the US Congress in deadlock over Obama's healthcare plan, the nation's Government has shut down. The Chinese government has reminded their American counterpart that they're obliged to pay their debts whether they're shut down or not and commentators in the rest of the world are looking on in bafflement. But in a country built on rebellion, with a deep-seated suspicion of central government, what does the shutdown tell us about the American political psyche? Philip is joined by the Guardian columnist Jonathan Freedland and historian of US politics Prof Philip Davis to discuss.

Paul Klee is the subject of a major new exhibition at Tate Modern which sets out to challenge his reputation for being a solitary dreamer and to reveal the rigour with which he created his work and presented it to the public. The show spans thirty years of his career from his emergence in Munich in the 1910s, through his years of teaching at the Bauhaus in the 1920s and up to his final paintings made in Bern after the outbreak of World War II. James Malpas and Karen Leeder review.

And Philip takes a trip into the heart and history of the Kremlin and asks the historian Catherine Merridale about its secrets. Her new book Red Fortress examines the story of one of the most mysterious and emblematic buildings in Russian history - the Kremlin. Part citadel, part holy shrine, the Kremlin has been Russia's heart for centuries, a metaphor for the eternal state.

Neil Cowley

Composer, jazz musician and session pianist Neil Cowley revisits his year as musician in residence for Derry / Londonderry, the inaugural UK City of Culture in 2013. Neil arrived in a city he knew little about, full of trepidation thanks to years of headlines about terrorism and violence in Northern Ireland.

If Walls Could Talk

Brian McGilloway

Novelist Brian McGilloway was born and brought up in Derry, a city from which his imagination has never quite escaped. He explores how the urban landscape shaped him creatively, from the river Foyle which divides the city, to its dark, tangled streets and alleyways, and the strange hinterland of the nearby Donegal border. As his writing progressed, the city began to take shape as a character in its own right, one which continues to feed and inspire his imagination.

These fears are soon realised, when she meets Leonora and discovers Riccardo's back-story. Cuniza agrees to help Leonora win Riccardo back.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall in London

Philharmonia - Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky (part 1)

Vladimir Ashkenazy conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in a Russian programme of music by Stravinsky plus Tchaikovsky's 'Manfred' Symphony.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London. Introduced by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.

Stravinsky: Four Norwegian Moods

Stravinsky: Violin Concerto

Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony

Patricia Kopatchinskaja (violin)
Philharmonia Orchestra
Vladimir Ashkenazy (conductor)

The Philharmonia's Conductor Laureate leads the orchestra in a programme culminating in Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony, a programmatic piece based on the poem by Lord Byron. It's a love it or hate it piece: Toscanini considered it Tchaikovsky's greatest work, while Bernstein condemned it as 'trash'. The first half starts with Stravinsky's music for a projected Hollywood film about the Nazi invasion of Norway, which he recycled as a short suite. Young Moldovan violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja plays Stravinsky's Violin Concerto, a neoclassical piece from 1931.


THU 20:05 Discovering Music (b03cnrls)
Tchaikovsky: Manfred Symphony

It should never have been by Tchaikovsky at all. His Russian colleague Balakirev was first in line to make a symphony of Byron's lonely Manfred, and he'd passed it to Berlioz. Only when the plan reached Tchaikovsky did it find a composer willing to take the challenge. Stephen Johnson explores how the composer transformed Byron's poetic vision into music, and teases apart the lives of the composer outside and the hero within.

Eric Schlosser, Richard II, Basil Bunting, Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough

As the curtain goes down on David Tennant's much anticipated performance in the lead role of Shakespeare's Richard II at Stratford, Susannah Clapp joins Anne for the very first review.

In 1980 an accident in a missile silo in Arkansas almost detonated the most powerful bomb ever constructed. Had it gone off the explosion would have been more powerful than all of the bombs used in the Second World War combined, including those dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In his new book Command And Control journalist Eric Schlosser reveals this was only one of several very near misses since 1945. He joins Anne.

It is a thousand years since King Sweyn 'Forkbeard' of Denmark was named king of England in 1013 and the Illuminating York Festival is marking the city's Viking history with an artwork in the form of a Son et Lumiere based around Old Nordic and Anglo Saxon texts. Eleanor Barraclough, Radio 3 New Generation Thinker and lecturer in medieval literature at Durham University, has had a sneak preview.

Poet Basil Bunting has fallen into obscurity since his death in 1985. Yet during his life he was admired by the finest writers of the twentieth century including W.B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway and Ford Madox Ford. Richard Burton's new biography charts the poet's astonishing life including several spells in prison, and jobs working as an artists' model, music critic, balloon operator, wing commander, diplomat and spy.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.

Nuala Hayes

Dublin born Nuala Hayes first came to Derry in the 1970s to act in Brian Friel's early Field Day productions, including the first staging of Translations at the height of the 'troubles'. Since then she has become fascinated with the city's many stories, and in particular those of the famous shirt factories. Nuala ponders the common threads of the city's shirt factory and story-telling traditions, examining the shirt as a symbol in Irish poetry and literature, and on the factory floors of Derry where story-telling became a way of life for the city's women.

FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b03cnf9z)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 4

Fiona Talkington links up live with American radio presenter Fred Childs in Minnesota, for the second Americana concert in the BBC National Orchestra of Wales's autumn series at BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff. This season, Afternoon on 3 is celebrating American music, with a particular focus on composers who established a new orchestral identity from the cultural melting pot of the twentieth-century United States.

John Alden Carpenter won fame with his first orchestral work in 1914, an unusual view of American day to day life, from a child's perspective. These action-packed - and tune-filled - adventures, inspired by Carpenter's own daughter - are so vivid that Walt Disney considered them at one point for a sequel to Fantasia. Aaron Copland played the the solo piano for the premiere of his own Piano Concerto in 1926 - to unkind reviews. These days it's difficult to understand how this jazz-influenced score could seem so shocking, reflecting as it does what Copland saw as the two sides of jazz: "the slow blues and the snappy number". It's a bold, unbridled piece, full of new York exhuberance and swagger. Another New Yorker, William Schuman also embraced jazz and folk traditions. Schuman was a prolific composer and vital force in American musical life as an administrator: his works deserve to be heard more often.

Also this afternoon, an American classic by the quintessential American maverick, Charles Ives, inspired by his native New England. And Louise Fryer shares a sneak preview of a new recording with Raphael Wallfisch and the BBC NOW, featuring music by Swiss-born Jewish composer Ernest Bloch, who settled in America during the First World War.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03cnrn3)
A Taste of Spain: James Galway and the Ulster Orchestra

Sir James Galway and the Ulster Orchestra with A Taste of Spain, live from the Belfast Waterfront, including music by Tchaikovsky, Rodrigo and Borne.

Live from the Waterfront Hall, Belfast.

Presented by John Toal

Tchaikovsky: Overture-Fantasie: Hamlet
Rodrigo: Fantasía para un Gentilhombre

8.15: Interval

Borne: Fantaisie brillante sur des airs de Carmen
Tchaikovsky: Francesca da Rimini, Symphonic Fantasy after Dante

Sir James Galway, flute
Ulster Orchestra
Antonio Mendéz, conductor

The fame of Joaquin Rodrigo, one of Spain's best known composers, rests mainly on just two pieces: the famous Concierto de Aranjuez, and the Fantasia para un Gentilhombre, both for guitar and orchestra. Among the delicacies in this concert will be a version of the latter for the flute. As always when Sir James plays in his home town, he is likely to receive the warmest of welcomes - and to respond with the most thrilling of encores!

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03cnms7)
If Walls Could Talk

Glenn Patterson

Novelist Glenn Patterson is proudly Belfast, and admits to being baffled by Derry in his childhood - it seemed far off in the distant West, and not quite in Northern Ireland, and not quite in Donegal, on whose border the city lies. Belfast has had a tendency to feel superior culturally, so why then has Derry's unique cultural tale had such a lasting impact and influence on Glenn? The city's Punk rockers The Undertones changed his view of music and 'shook' him awake, so why does he now think of them as Canadians?


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03cnrn5)
Nynke in Session

Lopa Kothari presents the latest tracks from across the globe, plus a specially recorded studio session by the Dutch fado singer Nynke, who combines influences from the Mediterranean and her native Friesland.
