Brigitte Fassbaender

In a special programme Tom Service talks to German mezzo-soprano and opera director Brigitte Fassbaender about her life and career. Fassbaender, who is celebrating her 75th birthday this year, was born in Berlin to an actress mother and celebrated baritone father - Willi Domgraf-Fassbaender - so it is not surprising that the opera stage should have appealed to the young Brigitte.

Fassbaender made her stage debut at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich in the early 1960s and since then has performed around the world concentrating on roles in Austro-German opera from Mozart to Wagner. It was her performance as Octavian in Richard Strauss' Rosenkavalier in Munich in 1967 that launched her international career, leading to debuts at Covent Garden (1971) and the Metropolitan Opera (1974) in the same role. Aside from the operatic stage Fassbaender is well known as a lieder singer, winning admirers worldwide with her richly imaginative, psychologically revealing interpretations.

Since retiring from public performances in 1995 Fassbaender has continued to work closely with the operatic world - as a stage director and intendantin of the Tiroler Landestheatre in Innsbruck for 13 years from 1999-2012. The works of Richard Strauss have always had a special part in Fassbaender's career, and she curates the Richard Strauss Festival in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, the town he lived in for over 40 years.

In this interview Fassbaender talks about her transition from singer to director, her work with young singers and about the music of Richard Strauss.


SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03x17wv)
Wigmore Hall: Brentano Quartet

Live from Wigmore Hall, London.

Brentano Quartet

Shostakovich: String Quartet No 11 in F minor, Op 122
Beethoven: String Quartet in E minor, Op 59 No 2

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.

The Brentano Quartet play two masterworks of the chamber repertoire: they begin with Shostakovich's darkly tense String Quartet no 11, and contrast this with Beethoven's contemplative E minor Quartet, the second of his middle-period set of three dedicated to his patron Count Razumovsky.

The Brentano Quartet takes its name from Antonie Brentano, whom many scholars consider to be Beethoven's "Immortal Beloved", the intended recipient of his famous love confession. The Quartet was formed in 1992, receiving high critical acclaim and winning a number of awards. The Quartet had its first European tour in 1997, and was honoured in the UK with the Royal Philharmonic Award for Most Outstanding Debut. Last year the quartet was named as the new Quartet in Residence at the Yale School of Music.


SAT 14:00 Saturday Classics (b03y10fy)

SAT 16:00 Sound of Cinema (b03y10g0)
Number Crunching

Matthew Sweet proves there's more to movies and mathematics than Superman 1, 2, 3 etc with a selection of film music sharing the theme of The Zero Theorem, this week's big release.

Terry Gilliam's new film is inspired by the power of mathematics to change the world, with a new score by George Fenton. Matthew considers the film and its music and looks at other film scores inspired by number-crunching, from Don Davis's music for "The Matrix" trilogy to James Horner's score to "A Beautiful Mind".

The Classic score of the week is Michael Nyman's "Drowning By Numbers" and the programme also features music by Hans Zimmer; Richard Rodney Bennett; John Williams and Danny Elfman.

San Francisco Symphony - Ives, Adams, Berlioz

Michael Tilson Thomas conducts the San Francisco Symphony in music from America's west and east coasts, plus Berlioz's opium-influenced Symphonie Fantastique.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall in London. Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

John Adams: Absolute Jest

8.05: INTERVAL A profile of the St Lawrence String Quartet from Canada

8.20: Part 2

Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique

St Lawrence String Quartet
San Francisco Symphony
Michael Tilson Thomas (conductor)

Nineteenth-century New Englander Charles Ives was inspired by the countryside, the people and the ideas around where he lived. He wrote that his Concord Sonata was an "impression of the spirit of transcendentalism that is associated in the minds of many with Concord, Massachusetts over a half century ago." The Alcotts were leading figures of the Transcendentalist movement, and one of them was Louisa May Alcott, author of 'Little Women'.

The San Francisco Symphony commissioned their local luminary John Adams to compose 'Absolute Jest', a concerto for string quartet and orchestra, first performed in 2012. Adams took the music of Beethoven as his inspiration - as he puts it, he is excited by "the ecstatic energy of Beethoven."

With Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, the San Francsico Symphony can be heard at their energetic and brilliant best. His 'Episode in the life of an artist' describes the inner adventures of a young man who has 'poisoned himself with opium', moving from ecstatic happiness to deep despair in a score full of vibrant colour and sharp sonic contrast.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b03y10g8)
French Focus

Ivan Hewett introduces a recent concert of contemporary music from France performed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales with conductor Otto Tausk, bringing together the work of elder statesman Pierre Boulez with two composers from the younger generation, Eric Tanguy and Pascal Dusapin. Alongside Dusapin's orchestral study Extenso we hear his large-scale choral work based on the Greek myth of Niobe. Also in tonight's programme, Lucy Railton and Sam Mackay discuss the work of the late Bernard Parmegiani, a key figure in electronic music from the 1960s onwards and the focus of a London Contemporary Music Festival event next weekend.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b038kzww)
Sally Davies

The Chief Medical Officer, Sally Davies, is on our TV screens almost every week as the authority we appeal to in every health scare: horsemeat in burgers, antibiotic resistance, three-parent babies. She is clearly a person of tremendous power and influence, in charge of the National Institute of Health Research with a budget of £1 billion ? voted by Woman's Hour recently one of the top ten most powerful women in the UK.

Sally Davies talks to Michael Berkeley about her private life. She tells him about the death of her second husband from leukaemia less than a year after they were married, and how this has changed her as a doctor. (She scandalised her medical colleagues on a hospital ward round by putting her arms around a dying patient.) She discusses the breakdown of her first marriage, as well as the happiness she has found with her third husband and daughters.

She also reveals that she believes drugs are a medical issue rather than a criminal one.

Sally Davies is humorous, and fun ? she admits she loves wine, for instance. She is deeply musical ? she played in the Midlands Youth Orchestra as a girl and turns to music to relieve stress.

Music includes: Mozart, Brahms, Wagner, Vaughan Williams, Rossini's Stabat Mater, Beethoven's Fidelio - and Queen.

Mozart: String Quartet in D minor K421

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b00wh2zk)
Opera Profiles

Rameau - Platee

Lucie Skeaping looks at Jean Philippe Rameau's comic masterpiece, the baroque opera Platée.

Rameau wrote the opera when he was in his sixties, for an entertainment at a court wedding at Versailles. The story tells of a foolish and ugly nymph who believes she is loved by Jupiter. The sense of the absurd permeates Rameau's score, with the composer and his librettist managing to create a wonderfully imaginative and colourful piece which turn many of the operatic conventions of the time on their head.

Rameau's contemporary, Melchior Grimm, considered the piece "sublime" while for Jean Jacques Rousseau it was a "divine" work. Even today it succeeds in firing the imaginations of opera producers and conductors, not least the French conductor Marc Minkowski, who explains why in the programme.

SUN 20:45 Sunday Feature (b03y1460)
Music and the Jews

There's a Place for Us

Norman Lebrecht presents the second of three programmes examining the complex relationship between music and Jewish identity.

Spanning thousands of years, from King David and the creation of the Psalms, to composers writing today including Steve Reich and Robert Saxton, Norman uncovers a wealth of fascinating stories about the role music has played at some of the key points in Jewish history.

Women, in the Jewish religion, are not meant to sing, and yet Jewish women have shrugged off that inhibition to become some of the most powerful figures in the popular imagination. We hear from some of the most successful women singing in Israel - and indeed on the world stage - today, including the eighth-generation Yiddish singer Myriam Fuks and Achinoam Nini, the latest in a long line of iconic Jewish women of Yemenite origin. Michael Grade remembers his grandmother's passion for Sophie Tucker, and the promoter Harvey Goldsmith explains why Jewish women have had such a huge impact on music over the past half century. We also hear from Dr Tova Gamliel about the extraordinarily powerful role of women in the religious practices of Yemen.

With contributions from Rabbi Shlomo Levin, Dr Gila Flam, the Yiddish singer Myriam Fuks, former Chairman of the BBC, Michael Grade, promoter Harvey Goldsmith, Ladino singers Kohava and Yasmin Levy, the Yemenite singer Achinoam Nini, and Dr Tova Gamliel of Bar-Ilan University in Tel Aviv.

Producer Emma Bloxham.


SUN 21:30 Drama on 3 (b00cky0w)
Lorca's Rural Trilogy

Blood Wedding

An atmospheric re-working by Ted Hughes of Lorca's evocative meditation on fate, war, tradition, passion and repression. Inspired by the true story of a fatal feud between two families in the Almeria province, high in the mountains of rural Spain.

The third play in Radio 3's broadcast of Federico García Lorca's "Rural Trilogy" from 1930s Spain. This production of Blood Wedding was first broadcast in 2008 and won the Sony Award for best drama that year.


SUN 22:55 BBC Performing Groups (b03y1462)
The New Babylon

"New Babylon" is Shostakovich's first film score, and is full of the composer's characteristically witty - and occasionally dark - musical style. The score was written quickly in 1928/9 and is tightly tied to the images in the film, at times violent, and at times lyrical and passionate. Its vivid and masterfully orchestrated music includes quotations from 'La Marseillaise' and ebullient can-cans in the style of Offenbach.

After its completion the score was largely ignored in the West for many years before resurfacing in 2001. This performance by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, recorded at Glasgow's City Halls in 2006, accompanied a screening of the film as part of that year's Merchant City Festival and was conducted by Ilan Volkov.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03y38d3)
Leopold Mozart (1719-1787)

Reluctant Scholar

He was at the forefront of early symphonic writing and composed a great deal of music across many forms, but he's been largely overshadowed by the popularity of his own son; this week Donald Macleod with Professor Cliff Eisen, explores the life and music of Leopold Mozart. Very few of his works are heard today, except a popular Trumpet Concerto and Toy Symphony. This hardly does justice to a man who composed many symphonies, concertos, chamber and sacred works, and whose musical influence can be heard in the compositions of his son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This week Donald Macleod follows Leopold on his tours with his family, explores the popular Violin Manual which made him famous across Europe, and questions whether Leopold's status as a composer should be reconsidered.

Leopold Mozart was the son of a bookbinder, living in Augsburg. He studied at the Augsburg Gymnasium, and then at the Jesuit school of St Salvator, where he performed as an actor, singer, organist and violinist. He was also a choirboy, and religion played an important part in his life. Leopold went on to compose a great many sacred choral works, including his Missa solemnis in C, which was once attributed to his son Wolfgang.

Leopold became a significant figure in the early development of the symphony. First though, he needed to leave Augsburg and make for Salzburg, where he was employed as a valet and musician to a Canon, who was also a Count. Leopold dedicated his Opus 1 set of Six Church and Chamber Sonatas to his employer, including his Sonata in G major Op 1 No 4.

When he comes back a few months later she's married, but realises she loves him too. Telling him they can never meet again, Werther decides he can't live without her. Jonas Kaufmann sings the troubled poet Werther at the Met for the first time, with Sophie Koch as the woman he falls for but can't have.

On the very day he celebrates his 70th birthday, Lill tackles one of the most dauntingly difficult and enduringly popular concertos in the entire repertoire.

In the interval, there is chance to look back on Lill's career in the recording studio, including solo works by Beethoven.

Secret Admirers

Sarah Walker on John White

Radio 3 presenter Sarah Walker celebrates a composer whose music has particularly inspired her: 'English Experimentalist' John White - who, as well as being a dedicated opponent of "seriosity" in classical music, is the spitting image of Hollywood actor Jack Nicholson.

This is the first of five editions of The Essay in which Radio 3 classical music presenters celebrate lesser-known composers whose 'secret admirers' they are. Coming up from Tuesday to Friday:
Tom Service on Arnold Bax
Lucie Skeaping on Thomas Ravenscroft
Martin Handley on Malcolm Arnold
Sara Mohr-Pietsch on Hildegard of Bingen.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03y3bx4)
Rosetta Trio

Warm melodic themes and Americana tones characterise the music of Stephan Crump's Rosetta Trio, where the bassist is joined by fellow stringsmen Liberty Ellman and Jamie Fox, both on guitars. Crump leads from the centre with an unfaltering sense of time and feel, shaping pieces through lilting bass grooves while his bandmates - Ellman on acoustic and Fox on electric - entwine beautiful lines and solos. Here in performance at London's Vortex jazz club, the group sound at their most intuitive.

Crump also joins Jez Nelson in the studio where he is put to the 'MP3 Shuffle' test, revealing an unexpected mix of listening pleasures and influences.

Leopold Mozart (1719-1787)

Minimum Wage

He was at the forefront of early symphonic writing and composed a great deal of music across many forms, but he's been largely overshadowed by the popularity of his own son; this week Donald Macleod with Professor Cliff Eisen, explores the life and music of Leopold Mozart.

In the 1740s, Leopold Mozart gained his first position at the Court of the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg. This was an unpaid position to begin with, and it was difficult to rise up the ranks at Court. Leopold went on to write much music for the court orchestra, in particular for those musicians he particularly admired, including two horn players. It is probable that his Concerto in E flat for two horns and strings was composed with these colleagues in mind.

During this early period in Salzburg, Leopold met Maria Anna Pertl. It was only when Leopold became more financially secure that they were eventually able to marry, in 1747, at Salzburg Cathedral.

Leopold Mozart (1719-1787)

Teacher

He was at the forefront of early symphonic writing and composed a great deal of music across many forms, but he's been largely overshadowed by the popularity of his own son; this week Donald Macleod with Professor Cliff Eisen, explores the life and music of Leopold Mozart.

Leopold Mozart was now very active at the court in Salzburg, with a great many violin pupils. With this experience, Leopold decided to write a Manual on the Violin. His book proved to be very popular indeed, and was reprinted in different languages. With his circumstances improving, he was now able to marry. Leopold and his wife Maria Anna would go on to have a number of children, although only two survived, Nannerl and Wolfgang. Leopold took a great interest in teaching his children, including writing several minuets for Nannerl to study, which he presented to her in a notebook, for her 8th birthday.

Travels with the Mozarts

He was at the forefront of early symphonic writing and composed a great deal of music across many forms, but he's been largely overshadowed by the popularity of his own son; this week Donald Macleod with Professor Cliff Eisen, explores the life and music of Leopold Mozart.

Leopold Mozart was convinced that his son, Wolfgang, was a gift from God. Such a talented son should be shown off to the world, and so Leopold took his family on tour. They performed for royalty and aristocrats; Wolfgang, aged just 6, played for the Empress Maria Theresa. These journeys abroad were also intended to be educational and Leopold, who was a devout Catholic, commented much on the changes in religious landscape from country to country.
Once the family had returned from their Grand Tour, Leopold settled back into life in Salzburg, and composed his Symphony in G, the Neue Lambacher symphony, once thought to be by his son. By now Wolfgang had started to compose his own music, although Leopold and Wolfgang often collaborated together on composition, including the Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in D major, K 107.

For the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss, Lorin Maazel conducts the Philharmonia in An Alpine Symphony and Also sprach Zarathustra.

conductor Lorin Maazel

For the 150th anniversary celebrations of Richard Strauss this year, the world-renowned conductor Lorin Maazel returns to London to conduct the Philharmonia in two orchestral masterpieces.
The Alpine Symphony recounts a mountain scene in detail from dawn to nightfall, imaginatively using an orchestra of over 150 players. Strauss's resonant opening to Also sprach Zarathustra may be best known thanks to Stanley Kubrick, but it is still an arresting start to a piece with searches for answers to Nietzsche's questions about God, humankind and our existence.

Sport Relief runs from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March and when Rob's guest retired from his sport, his opponents probably breathed a sigh of relief.

Known as the 'Pitbull' for his uncompromising style, he has continued his direct approach with his journalism. Brian is a regular part of the BBC rugby commentary team and has broadcast widely on TV and radio.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03y3dlr)
Leopold Mozart (1719-1787)

Final Years

He was at the forefront of early symphonic writing and composed a great deal of music across many forms, but he's been largely overshadowed by the popularity of his own son; this week Donald Macleod with Professor Cliff Eisen, explores the life and music of Leopold Mozart.

In the last decade of Leopold Mozart's life, he gave up composing music. His time focused more and more on the support and development of his children. It wasn't all hard work though, and on one occasion Leopold and Wolfgang went to a fancy dress party in Salzburg, where it was likely some of Leopold's music was performed, such as his Serenade in D major.

Leopold was now facing a lonely final few years. His wife Maria Anna had died in Paris, and both Wolfgang and Nannerl had left home and got married. Leopold no longer sought promotion at court, having been passed over a number of times. He did however continue to teach musicians at home, which included regular ensemble sessions, working on pieces like his own Trio Sonata in A major.

Leopold remained proud of his son's achievements, even if he didn't always approve of his behaviour. One contemporary account reports Leopold crying when he heard one of Wolfgang's Violin works. Leopold's own reputation was now becoming more and more eclipsed by his famous son; however, he remains an important early explorer in symphonic writing, such as his Symphony in D major D17.

Live at Southbank Centre: John Scott

Live from Royal Festival Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Continuing Radio 3's residency at Southbank Centre, celebrating the re-opening of the restored Royal Festival Hall organ, John Scott plays a selection of music from the Baroque to our own era.

Marchand: Dialogue in C
Buxtehude: Chorale prelude Komm, heiliger Geist (BuxWV199)
J S Bach: Prelude and Fugue in flat major (BWV 552)
Mozart: Adagio and Allegro in F minor (K 594)
Dupré: Esquisse in E minor( Op.41 no 2)
Dupré: Esquisse in B flat minor (Op.41 no 3)

8.25 Interval

John Scott (organ)

When first installed in 1953, the Royal Festival Hall's great 8000-pipe organ attracted admiration and opprobrium in equal measure. Controversially, it aimed - for the first time in a major British instrument - to be able convincingly to recreate the sounds and timbres required for every period and school of organ composition, and drew inspiration from many famous European instruments of the past. John Scott, formerly Organist of St Paul's Cathedral, and now Director of Music at St Thomas', Fifth Avenue in New York, demonstrates the RFH organ's versatility in music from 17th-century France to our own day.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03y3fhq)
Secret Admirers

Sara Mohr-Pietsch on Hildegard of Bingen

Radio 3 presenter Sara Mohr-Pietsch celebrates a composer whose music has particularly inspired her: the remarkable twelfth-century abbess and mystic Hildegard of Bingen - perhaps the earliest actual "composer" in the history of Western music.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03y3ggs)
Live at Southbank Centre: Claudia Aurora in Session, Commonwealth Connections 7

Live at Southbank Centre: Mary Ann Kennedy with Portuguese Fado singer Claudia Aurora live in session and part 7 of the Commonwealth Connections series.

COMMONWEALTH CONNECTIONS
This landmark 26-part weekly series leading up to the Commonwealth Games in July features music from each of the 53 member states, reflecting the range of music and culture across the whole Commonwealth.

Music feature from Botswana:
In Botswana, each tribe has their own identifiable style of music. The Balete Ditlhaka traditional group, based in Ramotswa village in the south of Botswana, is one of the last groups keeping Ditlhaka music alive. Deputy Chief Kgosi Tsimane Mokgosi tells the stories of the Ditlhaka music, and the group's director and pipe tuner Sialala Mookestsi shares how he learnt Ditlhaka in the South African mines as a boy. In Botswana's capital Gaborone, a very different sound comes from inside a garden; Myzer Mathako plays his Mbira, moved by its spirit.

Heritage Track from Sierra Leone:
Hafsatu Kamara is an up-and-coming sprinter who represented Sierra Leone at the 2013 African Senior Championships, and aims to do well at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Raised in Sierra Leone and the United States, she is well aware of the extremes life can throw at you, having been forced to leave Sierra Leone because of the outbreak of Civil War in the early nineties. Her choice of music is by Emmerson from his "Yesterday Betteh Pass Tiday?" album, a recording which provoked a tense political debate in Sierra Leone. This reggae song "Na for Balance" advises Sierra Leoneans to avoid physical confrontation.

Live session with Claudia Aurora:
Born and raised in Oporto, Portugal. Claudia Aurora grew up listening to early Bruce Springsteen, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young and Janis Joplin. It wasn't until she re-located to Bristol in 2003, a place far from friends and family, that she became interested in performing the music from her roots - Fado, a musical form renowned for its heady mix of loss, longing, love, and nostalgia.
