Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini, The Future of the Met, Lawrence Zazzo, David Lang's Crowd Out

Terry Gilliam's new production of Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini opened at English National Opera this week. Tom Service speaks to ENO's music director Edward Gardner and reviews the production with the critics Alexandra Coghlan and Geoffrey Smith. On a flying visit to London, the Metropolitan Opera's General Manager Peter Gelb explains to Tom that although the launch of the Met's live HD cinema relays worldwide have been a tremendous success the opera company faces bankruptcy within in the next two or three years if things aren't rectified now. Gelb sets out his plan to save the Met to Tom.

Tom also took the opportunity to catch up with the American countertenor Lawrence Zazzo when he was in town and found out about the influence Frankie Valli and the Bee Gees had on him...as well as James Bowman! Zazzo also expressed his frustration at the idea that countertenors are a continuation of the castrati line and not seen as falsettists in their own right. Tom also visits Birmingham to see how preparations are coming along for the composer David Lang's new work called Crowd Out which features a thousand voices shouting, whispering and chanting!


SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b045xc54)
Russian Patriarchate Choir

The Russian Patriarchate Choir lead by Anatoly Grindenko, perform Russian Orthodox chant from the 16th and 17th centuries.

For many years Russian Orthodox chant was rarely heard in its country of origin where it was suppressed. Then, once the Soviet Union had collapsed, it began to find a new popularity. This group of male singers was founded in the early 1980s and has succeeded in bringing this music to a wider public. Typically Russian, the choir is renowned for its astonishing basso profundo sonorities and raw emotional performances.


SAT 14:00 Saturday Classics (b045xc56)
Peter Day

Saturday Classics this week is presented by one of the BBC's great broadcasters. Peter Day has presented business programmes on BBC Radio 4 and the World Service for many years. Yet, he has an abiding passion for music, which has underpinned his life since childhood. Today, for Radio 3, Peter Day puts aside matters of finance and business to present two hours of his favourite classical and folk music. His highly personal selection embraces the musical worlds of Dvorak, Scarlatti, Monteverdi, Jake Thackray, Shostakovich, Mozart and Mahler.


SAT 16:00 Sound of Cinema (b045xclt)
Rachel Portman and Belle

Matthew Sweet meets composer Rachel Portman in the week that sees the launch of Amma Asante's "Belle", featuring a new Rachel Portman score.

Matthew meets Rachel at her London home and looks back on a career that stretches beyond her music for the 1989 Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit, through Chocolat, The Duchess, Oliver Twist, Sirens, Benny and Joon, The Manchurian Candidate, The Cider House Rules and the Academy Award-winning Emma.

The programme also features music from Rachel's new score for Belle.

Cowley describes his latest work as the band's 'concert hall record' and captures Neil and his trio on a new voyage of discovery exchanging their loud riffs for a gentler, more reflective sound.

SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b045xdst)
How Was Your Day Joe?

Joe is home from school.

"How was your day Joe?" asks his mum Emma (the producer of the programme).

But Joe, and many like him on the autistic spectrum, can't always find the words to summarise their day, or even make sense of the question. Yet later on, they may come round to offering an answer. So what is happening as they struggle to process what is being asked of them?

Through sound and interview, Joe and Emma explore where he and others on the autistic spectrum go to in their minds between the question and a possible answer.

Emma finds out that part of Joe's resistance to giving an answer may come from the fact that he's exhausted just from the effort of processing the transition between school and home. Whereas so-called "neurotypical" people find it easy to make sense of the different settings and can see them in a wider context, people with autism often focus on every tiny detail and find it difficult to filter information. So a short walk up the path to the house may be crammed with observations of every blade of grass, or a struggle to understand why some things have changed since they left- the window being open for instance when it wasn't before.

And the question itself - "How was your day?" Which part of the day? Does Mummy mean "today" or yesterday? Is it the right question to be asking at all?

Emma and Joe hear testimony from others on the autistic spectrum, including the writers Wendy Lawson, Michael Barton and the poet Nicole Nicholson. There are also contributions from Professor Simon Baron-Cohen (Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University), clinical psychologist Andrew McDonnell, speech therapist Robert Bell and Delia Barton, Michael's mother.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b045xhnj)
Strauss 150: Strauss's Library

Strauss 150: Strauss's Library

In this special edition of Words and Music, Charles Edwards and Pooky Quesnel delve into Richard Strauss's library and imagination. Strauss was an avid reader and, like many of his contemporaries, was extremely well versed in the writings of Goethe. He was also fascinated by the literature of Ancient Greece, modelling his operas on works by Sophocles, as in the example of Elektra.

This edition of Words and Music weaves a Goethe strand - texts by Goethe or inspired by Goethe - with a strand on texts that Strauss used in his operatic works. There are also letters from his correspondence with his librettist Hoffmannsthal and modern poems on subjects that inspired Strauss, from the stories of Salome to Ariadne.

Strauss loved Mozart, Wagner and Couperin. The music of these composers features alongside that of Strauss himself.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b047qj5p)
Sonic Art Boom - The Art of Noise

How can art be invisible? When it's made of sound.

Dan Jones commemorates the centenary of 'The Art of Noise Manifesto', by Luigi Russolo, with an exploration of that mysterious, invisible and vigorous form - Sound Art.

Luigi Russolo believed that the music of the future should reflect the noises of modern life. Rejecting the classical orchestra (along with pizza and pasta which he believed sapped the moral fibre of his nation) he invented 'noise- makers' to replicate the sounds of traffic, industry and even modern warfare.

Russolo may be a disputed godfather of sound art, but it would be almost a hundred years till a sound artist would be shortlisted for the Turner Prize (Susan Philipzs won in 2010) and the Museum of Modern Art, MOMA, in New York would open its first sound art show.

In 'Sonic Art Boom', Dan Jones considers why it has taken so long for Sound Art to get a hearing.

He talks to Janet Cardiff - whose sound installation "The Forty-Part Motet" has been presented by prestigious galleries all over the globe; speaks with Barbara London, MOMA's legendary curator, about the difficulties of displaying sound; meets his hero Stan Shaff - creator of 'Audium', the world's first sound sculpture theatre in San Francisco; and goes underground with Bill Fontana, world-renowned sound artist, as he places a giant loudspeaker in front of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

The art world, it seems, has pulled out its earplugs.
First broadcast in October 2013

Producer: Sara Jane Hall

Presenter: Dan Jones is a BAFTA award-winning composer and sound designer working in film and theatre - Sound and Fury, is a theatre company of which he is a founder - and his performance piece, created with Luke Jerram, 'Sky Orchestra' has toured the globe for ten years.

The Seagull

THE SEAGULL
Siobhan Redmond and Paul Higgins head a cast of leading Scottish actors in this new production of Chekhov's classic drama. In part a tragic play about eternally unhappy people, Chekhov has always surprised his audiences by viewing it as a comedy, poking fun at human folly. All the characters are dissatisfied with their lives. Some desire love. Some yearn for success. Some crave artistic genius. But no one ever seems to attain happiness. When famous actress Irina Arkadina arrives to spend the summer on her brother Sorin's country estate, tempers inevitably get frayed.

Adapted for radio by Stuart Paterson from the first ever English translation by George Calderon.

First broadcast in January 2010.

Rob's guest this week is Tamara Rojo. Tamara dazzled the ballet world by winning both a Gold Medal at the Paris International Dance Competition and a Special Jury Award in 1994.

She then joined the English National Ballet, dancing the full range of principal roles, and ENB Artistic Director Derek Deane created the roles of Juliet (Romeo and Juliet) and Clara (The Nutcracker) for Tamara. Her performances as Clara broke attendance records at the London Coliseum, and in 1997 the London Times named her "Dance Revelation of the Year". Three years later, Sir Anthony Dowell asked Tamara to join the Royal Ballet, with whom she danced principal roles in Dowell's Swan Lake, Makarova's The Sleeping Beauty and La Bayadere, Nureyev's Don Quixote and Wright's The Nutcracker. She also performed many roles in Sir Kenneth MacMillan's works for the Royal Ballet, including the title roles in Isadora, Romeo and Juliet and Manon, and The Chosen One in The Rite of Spring. In 2012 Tamara was appointed as Director and Principal Dancer of the English National Ballet.

Strauss 150

Early Influences

Donald Macleod introduces important figures who each played a key role in Strauss's burgeoning career as both conductor and composer.

Strauss's father, Franz, exerted a powerful influence over his education and early career. Conductor Hans von Bülow gave Strauss his first conducting post, and the violinist Alexander Ritter was responsible for igniting Strauss's passion for Wagner. However, the most significant figure of all was Strauss's wife, the distinguished soprano Pauline de Ahna, for whom Strauss wrote more than 200 songs over the course of his career.

Two of BBC Radio 3's current New Generation Artists take part in this live recital from the Isle of Man, showcasing some of the best repertoire for solo violin and solo piano. In the first half of the concert, the American violinist Elena Urioste plays one of Bach's incredible Partitas alongside Eugène Ysaye's fiendish 3rd violin sonata. In the second half, Chinese pianist Zhang Zuo performs one of Haydn's exuberant piano sonatas and Chopin's intensely romantic Andante spianato and Grand polonaise brillante. Both performers come together at the end of the concert to play some well-known pieces for violin and piano by Massenet and Kreisler.

During the interval, there will be music associated with the Isle of Man, which throughout 2014 is showcasing Manx artistic heritage in a year-long "Island of Culture" festival. As festival director Michael Lees said at the launch in January: "This is the year we tell our story to the world".


MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (b020ts57)
Burma: Art under Dictatorship

The documentary film-maker Rex Bloomstein travels to Burma to explore the country's cultural life during this period of extraordinary transition and asks how free now are its artists to express themselves? Bloomstein has visited Burma secretly twice in the last six years to make two documentaries, one on freedom of expression and the other on Zarganar, the country's greatest comedian.

During his last trip in 2010, all those he approached to be interviewed were too frightened to appear on camera. However, after the political reforms of the last few years, he encounters an artistic community who feel safe enough to speak out but who reveal how much censorship still exists.

Bloomstein meets with painter and performance artist Nyein Chan Su who describes how ten government officials from the Censorship Board came to his gallery earlier this year to inspect his politically themed paintings. The painter reveals that in the past the colour red was not allowed to be used because it suggested that the regime had blood on its hands.

The film producer Myo So discusses his two-year battle with the censors to get his 2010 film 'Nostalgia', about the student uprising in 1988, distributed without significant cuts even though the film contains no scenes of actual protest. Myo So is still fighting that battle.

Bloomstein meets with one of Burma's foremost contemporary poets Zeyar Lynn who has spearheaded a new form of Burmese poetry, freed up from using introspective and emotional language that was characteristic under previous dictatorships.

Han Htoo Lwin, one of Burma's most radical punk rock singers, describes the ways he has tried to defeat the censors through his lyrics and via his satirical radio show which was banned.

Bloomstein also discovers the scale of the country's cultural impoverishment, with so few places to study, view and exhibit art. He engages with those artists who through their work are fighting an ongoing battle for history and memory as they gradually become freer to confront their past.

Presenter: Rex Bloomstein
Producers: Simon Jacobs & Rex Bloomstein

First broadcast in June 2013.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01slm5m)
Life in Fragments: Stories from the Cairo Genizah

The Discovery

The Cairo Genizah is a treasure trove of manuscripts from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Old Cairo that portrays over 800 years of community life. Rediscovered in the 19th century, this vast communal paper-bin contained hundreds upon thousands of scraps of rag-paper and parchment. It's an unedited archive of prayers, letters, poems, magical spells, alchemical recipes, children's exercise books, divorce deeds and pre-nuptial agreements that paints a lively and intimate picture of daily medieval life in Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

In this first essay, Dr Esther-Miriam Wagner of the Genizah Research Unit tells the story of the discovery of the Genizah inside the ancient and crumbling synagogue of Al-Fustat, a suburb of modern day Cairo. Featuring a legendary curse, a pair of intrepid Scottish twins, an eccentric scholar and one very generous rabbi.

Produced by Michele Banal and Miranda Hinkley.
A Nightjar production.

First broadcast in May 2013.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b045xk19)
Loose Tubes

A second chance to hear legendary British big band Loose Tubes, reunited and in concert at Ronnie Scott's, performing new music commissioned by BBC Radio 3.

Bursting onto the scene in the 1980s, Loose Tubes represented one of the most exciting movements in British jazz history, winning crowds over with a combination of trailblazing compositions, anarchic stage performances and an irreverent sense of humour. Twenty four years after their last outing, they're back at their spiritual home of Ronnie Scott’s, with all that original spirit intact. This performance features brand new music from the band’s composers Chris Batchelor, Steve Berry, Eddie Parker and Django Bates, alongside a selection of old favourites.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe

Ben Outhwaite, Head of the Genizah Research Unit, shows how private letters between medieval merchants reveal an international trading network that united Jews, Muslims and Christians across Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.

She then joined the English National Ballet, dancing the full range of principal roles, and ENB Artistic Director Derek Deane created the roles of Juliet (Romeo and Juliet) and Clara (The Nutcracker) for Tamara. Her performances as Clara broke attendance records at the London Coliseum, and in 1997 the London Times named her "Dance Revelation of the Year". Three years later, Sir Anthony Dowell asked Tamara to join the Royal Ballet, with whom she danced principal roles in Dowell's Swan Lake, Makarova's The Sleeping Beauty and La Bayadere, Nureyev's Don Quixote and Wright's The Nutcracker. She also performed many roles in Sir Kenneth MacMillan's works for the Royal Ballet, including the title roles in Isadora, Romeo and Juliet and Manon, and The Chosen One in The Rite of Spring. In 2012 Tamara was appointed as Director and Principal Dancer of the English National Ballet.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b01slnf2)
Life in Fragments: Stories from the Cairo Genizah

Women

Melonie Schmierer-Lee of the Genizah Research Unit reveals the fortunes of women in medieval Cairo by looking at marriage and divorce deeds, as well as some incredibly detailed pre-nuptial agreements.

The Cairo Genizah is a treasure trove of manuscripts from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Old Cairo that portrays over 800 years of community life. Rediscovered in the 19th century, this vast communal paper-bin contained hundreds upon thousands of scraps of rag-paper and parchment - an unedited archive of prayers, letters, poems, magical spells, alchemical recipes, children's exercise books, divorce deeds and pre-nuptial agreements that paints a lively and intimate picture of daily medieval life in Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Produced by Michele Banal and Miranda Hinkley

First broadcast in May 2013.

Strauss 150 - Daphne

Another day in Greek Myth Land; another unwanted advance by Apollo. In this award-winning recording, Renée Fleming is nymph-turned-tree Daphne, whose vegetal transformation saves her from the lecherous clutches of Apollo. The tale, with its moonlit sylvan setting, sex, love and death, was a gift to Richard Strauss. Strauss responded, demonstrating his utter mastery of voice and orchestra, with some of his most consistently lyrical and beautiful music, ending with the famously sumptuous transformation scene.

Plus Beethoven Symphony No. 7: a work in the repertoire of Strauss, who was one of the most celebrated conductors of his day. Presented by Verity Sharp

Boyce is less famous today than his contemporary Handel, but his serenata 'Solomon' was as popular as Handel's Messiah in its time. Its lyrics however were considered too racy for later, more conservative tastes, so it lay virtually unperformed after 1800. Modern audiences are likely to be more open-minded.

Rob's guest this week is Tamara Rojo. Tamara dazzled the ballet world by winning both a Gold Medal at the Paris International Dance Competition and a Special Jury Award in 1994. She left her native Spain in 1996, having been invited to join the Scottish National Ballet. She then joined the English National Ballet, dancing the full range of principal roles, and ENB Artistic Director Derek Deane created the roles of Juliet (Romeo and Juliet) and Clara (The Nutcracker) for Tamara. Her performances as Clara broke attendance records at the London Coliseum, and in 1997 the London Times named her "Dance Revelation of the Year". Three years later, Sir Anthony Dowell asked Tamara to join the Royal Ballet, with whom she danced principal roles in Dowell's Swan Lake, Makarova's The Sleeping Beauty and La Bayadere, Nureyev's Don Quixote and Wright's The Nutcracker. She also performed many roles in Sir Kenneth MacMillan's works for the Royal Ballet, including the title roles in Isadora, Romeo and Juliet and Manon, and The Chosen One in The Rite of Spring. In 2012 Tamara was appointed as Director and Principal Dancer of the English National Ballet.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b045xl8y)
Strauss 150

Final Years

After the Second World War, Strauss was under suspicion as a collaborator. During the Allies' investigation, he was persuaded to go into exile in Switzerland and, once there, he and his wife underwent a gruelling, nomadic existence for more than three years. Finally cleared in June 1948, Strauss returned home in the spring of the following year, just months before he died.
Donald Macleod introduces two of Strauss's finest works from those final years - one an overwhelming expression of grief, the other his crowning achievement to a life devoted to the human voice.

Strauss 150

Episode 4

Verity Sharp presents the Oboe Concerto - late, post-War Strauss - and a work from the end of the previous century. In the tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life) Strauss outraged his critics by making himself its hero. Ein Heldenleben was dedicated to the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam and its conductor Willem Mengelberg. Strauss had been impressed by what was then, and still very much is, one of the world's great orchestras. Today's performance of this orchestral tour de force is played by them and their current Chief Conductor Mariss Jansons, recorded at a special concert celebrating their 125-year anniversary

Plus music from Strauss's conducting repertoire: Mozart's 'Jupiter' Symphony and the Prelude to Act 1 from Wagner's Parsifal.

Life in Fragments: Stories from the Cairo Genizah

Alchemy and Magic

Gabriele Ferrario of the Genizah Research Unit reveals the most secretive side of the Genizah collection: the manuscripts relating to alchemy and magic.

The Cairo Genizah is a treasure trove of manuscripts from the Ben Ezra synagogue in Old Cairo that portrays over 800 years of community life. Rediscovered in the 19th century, this vast communal paper-bin contained hundreds upon thousands of scraps of rag-paper and parchment - an unedited archive of prayers, letters, poems, magical spells, alchemical recipes, children's exercise books, divorce deeds and pre-nuptial agreements that paints a lively and intimate picture of daily medieval life in Egypt and the Eastern Mediterranean.

Produced by Michele Banal and Miranda Hinkley.

First broadcast in May 2013.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b045xwkl)
Svara-Kanti, Commonwealth Connections 19

Mary Ann Kennedy with music from Uganda, and from the Caribbean islands of St Kitts and Nevis in our Commonwealth Connections. Also a session with Simon Thacker's multicultural Indian-Western group Svara-Kanti, and a selection of new World Music releases.

COMMONWEALTH CONNECTIONS FEATURE / Uganda - both sides of the Nile
Across the source of the Nile at Jinja and eastwards towards the Kenyan border lies a remote and rural Busogan village with music both from the Busoga royal courts and of the people. The last surviving musicians of the Royal courts are the Xylophone players, playing a giant wooden xylophone built across a pit in the ground for resonance. This impromptu concert at the village also features a rare opportunity to hear the gourd trumpets of Busoga, also a part of the royal music who have been named by UNESCO on the list of Important Cultural Heritages in need of urgent safeguarding. Meanwhile and by contrast in the leafy campus of Kyambogo University in Kampala, we meet one of the two Ennanga (Bow harp) players of Buganda, who learned from court players at the Buganda Royal Palace. This beautiful instrument was played pointing towards the King and the player was his confidante and personal advisor, relating in stories, all the worries and concerns of his people.

HERITAGE TRACK - ST KITTS AND NEVIS
Athlete Jason Rogers (100m), living and training in Canada, chooses as his Heritage Track an example of the soca music so popular back home in the Caribbean islands of St Kitts and Nevis. Unstoppable Force by King Konris is deeply rooted in that country and speaks of the pride, dedication and energy of the people, something Jason finds inspiring as he looks forward to representing St Kitts and Nevis at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in a few weeks' time.

SESSION - Simon Thacker's group Svara-Kanti
Simon Thacker and his group Svara-Kanti bring a mix of original pieces as well as arrangements to our studio, in this special multicultural experiment. Western sounds, with both jazz, classical, rock and flamenco undertones, blend in with the rhythmic structures of Indian music as the group Svara-Kanti find new expression to cross-cultural collaborations.
