SAT 19:30 Opera on 3 (b0477dh8)
Henze's Boulevard Solitude

A rare opportunity to hear one of the masterpieces of the post-war operatic canon, Composed shortly after the Second World War, Boulevard Solitude is Henze's take on the story of Manon Lescaut, which had already attracted many composers before him. No genteel romance for Henze, though: his telling of the story takes us into a seedy world of desperate lowlife characters - rootless, loveless, egocentric, and desperate for drugs, money, and sex.

The story unfolds without a break in a series of seven scenes, the first of which takes place in a railway station bar, where Armand sees Manon and is instantly lovestruck. In the scenes that follow we witness the futility of his good intentions in the face of greed and desperation, and chart the course of their affair as it descends into a catastrophe largely brought about by Manon's bullying brother Lescaut.

This production was part of Welsh National Opera's Fallen Women season, and in his introduction Christopher Cook speaks to WNO's Artistic Director David Pountney, and the principal protagonists, about the opera and their roles within it.

Manon Lescaut ..... Sarah Tynan (soprano)

SAT 21:40 Between the Ears (b0477dhb)
Sky Boy

This Between the Ears is a flight simulation in sound that takes off with trapeze artist, Matt Costain. A portrait of life divided between reality and wild fantasy, which soars through the subconscious; to dreamlike spaces where anything is possible.

Dreams may represent that which is beyond our physical limitations. In our subconscious mind, we can be anybody and do anything. We feel undefeatable and nobody can tell us what we cannot do and accomplish.

In reality, we do not have the ability to fly. Or do we?

"I suppose it's the flip side of being real, it's about flying in the face of reality and saying ha! See? See what I can do? See what we can do? See what can be done? Not just physically here, but as metaphor, as life statement as joie de vivre, as life."

With contributions from Adi Andrei, Hitomi Sakamoto, Evelyn Quek and Matt Costain.

Produced by Hana Walker-Brown
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03lzsbh)
Hugh Masekela

Hugh Masekela is a jazz legend. Brought up in South Africa during Apartheid, he left the country at 21, and spent the next 30 years in exile, releasing album after album - 43 to date - and performing alongside all the other great musicians of our era: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Who ... He's still making music and touring the world at 74, and Private Passions was lucky enough to catch him on a visit to London.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about his passion for performing, which began when Bishop Trevor Huddleston gave him money to go to buy his first trumpet. Masekela describes vividly the musical culture he grew up in: the townships were awash with music, he says, and there was a competing cacophony of sound. As a child he began piano lessons at four, begging his father to play records before he had the strength to turn the handle of the gramophone. Music took over and he says he's been 'bewitched' ever since. He tells the moving story of how as a teenager he played truant from school and instead spent his days playing with other musicians in recording studios; his father found out and beat him severely, and Hugh ran away from home. But a few weeks later his father visited the studio and heard him play the trumpet. Realising that this was his future, his father forgave him and welcomed him back into the family.

Masekela also talks about his relationship with Nelson Mandela, and how Mandela smuggled a letter out of prison to him, inspiring his anthem (and worldwide hit) 'Bring Him Back Home'. He reveals the disillusionment he feels about South Africa now, and reflects on what would have happened had he stayed there - 'I would have died very young'.

Hugh Masekela's choices include Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, J S Bach, Billie Holliday and Ravel.

First broadcast in December 2013.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b047gdhl)
Bannockburn Begins

On the eve of the feast of St John the Baptist in the year 1314, the battle of Bannockburn began. 700 years later, Robert Bruce's great victory over Edward II of England is still with us. Ask a medieval historian of the period what Bannockburn achieved and they'll talk about ending the Scottish civil war, forcing those who held lands in both England and Scotland to choose one or the other or saving the Bruce dynasty by allowing Bruce to bargain to get his wife and daughter back from English captivity. Ask any non-historian and they'll most likely tell you that it was the battle that secured Scottish independence. Look down through the ages and you'll find everyone from Stewart court poets to our current Queen (when she unveiled Bruce's statue at Bannockburn in 1964) telling you that it's about freedom. There's a glorious mismatch between historians and history. The battle lives in our imagination - but why and how? Novelist Louise Welsh explores the meaning of Bannockburn - what people fought for on that day in 1314 and why it took on such a life of its own. She's helped on her quest by historians Fiona Watson, Dauvit Broun, Alan Young, Richard Finlay, James Coleman and the National Trust for Scotland Battlefield Visitor Centre Manager Scott McMaster.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b02x939n)
Babbage

The truly extraordinary story of Charles Babbage, a forgotten genius. One of the great scientific brains of the nineteenth century, he first conceived the computer but died a despised failure. A new play by David Pownall.

This is a play with strong contemporary overtones as Babbage is forced to constantly struggle against financial cuts and restraints imposed by successive governments and a lack of investment in scientific projects.

Although failure and injustice have dogged the lives of many inventors, Babbage really took terrible revenge upon himself. At the beginning of the play, he is building his analytical engine, the prototype of the modern computer, at his house in Dorset Street, W1. When he learns his project will no longer be funded by Government, he cracks and loses the will to fight on. He is flat broke, exhausted, bitter and disillusioned. If no one wants his computer, so be it. Let the thing be scrapped. Only one friend is able to imagine the future of the computer - Ada Lovelace, Byron's daughter, poet, prophet, gambler and mathematician. Following the early death of Babbage's wife, Ada is the most important woman in his life, despite the fact that she was married to an aristocrat. Through thick and thin, illness and despair, Babbage and Ada are a team in numbers, imagination and dreams.

First broadcast in June 2013.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b016vn00)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

The Edwardian Golden Summer

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum. At the outbreak of war, Elgar was noted for being more concerned about his beloved horses, than for any soldiers fighting. Little did anyone know how many horses or people would die in this conflict, which lasted more than the predicted three months. Elgar did do his bit though, joining the Special Reserve, conducting charity concerts to raise much needed funds, and composing the odd bit of jingoistic music to rally the people. It is the Great War period back at home in Great Britain, with Zeppelin raids, German cruisers shelling Whitby and Scarborough, to xenophobic riots in London, which Donald Macleod explores tracing how these events affected the life and music of Sir Edward Elgar.

1914, and in the age of Empire and British supremacy at sea, it was the Edwardian Golden Summer. Few people realised that war was looming, and commissions were coming in for Elgar, such as from the Sons of Clergy Festival at St. Paul's Cathedral, for which he composed his anthem Give unto the Lord. Soon, with motor vehicles requisitioned, and the unmistakable increase of men in khaki, the Great War had begun. Elgar soon received his first war commission in aid of the Belgian Fund, writing a work for narrator and orchestra, Carillon. But many of Elgar's most fierce supporters were German, including Hans Richter, to whom he dedicated his Three Bavarian Dances.

Penny Gore introduces an afternoon of music connected with the UK at war, featuring music by the Irishman Sir Charles Villiers Stanford and two of his composition pupils at the Royal College of Music: Howells and Bliss. Howells' First Piano Concerto was his first major orchestral work, and the 1914 premiere was conducted by Stanford. It is notable for the colour and brilliance of his orchestration as well as the extremely demanding piano writing. The afternoon also includes performances of Strauss and Dvorak from the BBC Philharmonic.

MON 18:30 Composer of the Week (b016vn00)
[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b0477jsj)
Aldeburgh Festival - Pierre-Laurent Aimard

Live from Snape Maltings as part of the Aldeburgh Festival

Presented by Tom Service

Aldeburgh Festival Director Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays a selection of highly virtuosic and pianistic studies by five of the greatest 19th- and 20th-century composers.

Debussy - Etudes (selection)
Ligeti - Etudes (selection)
Chopin - Etudes (selection)

Interval - includes études or studies for orchestra by Szymanowski, Stravinsky, Arthur Bliss and Frank Martin.

Bartok - Etudes (selection)
Ligeti - Etudes (selection)
Scriabin - Etudes (selection)

To hear Aldeburgh Festival Artistic Director Pierre-Laurent Aimard perform Ligeti's dazzling Études is to experience some of the twentieth century's most energising piano music interpreted by one of the composer's closest collaborators. For this concert Aimard takes the audience on a grand kaleidoscopic tour of the Étude ('study') genre, from the great Romantic composer-pianists Chopin and Bartók to the exploration of sounds and colours in pieces by Debussy and Scriabin.
Earlier studies which on paper seem light-years removed turn out to have surprising connections and resonances with Ligeti's, whose 'high virtuosity' the composer explained to be 'a response to my own inadequate piano technique'.


MON 21:45 Sean Rafferty at Home (b03lzdcz)
Dame Mitsuko Uchida

Pianist Dame Mitsuko Uchida invites Sean Rafferty into her piano studio for an extended interview reflecting on a life in music and culture.
Mitsuko Uchida is one of the world's most celebrated pianists, noted for her interpretations of Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven. Japanese born Uchida has made the UK her home and houses her four pianos in a studio in West London - a deeply personal space, not often opened to visitors. Mitusko Uchida discusses her early musical memories, from her instant connection with the piano to hearing Aida with her father when an Italian opera company made its first visit to Japan. She describes her love of London, how she doesn't feel the need to own great art and her deep love of Mozart, a composer who "always forgives".

Producer: Freya Hellier

First broadcast in December 2013 (Revised repeat).


MON 22:45 The Essay (b0477jtc)
Minds at War: Series 1

Paths of Glory

How great artists and thinkers responded to the First World War in individual works of art
1. BBC Correspondent Allan Little reflects on C.R.W.Nevinson's great 1917 painting, Paths of Glory

C.R.W.Nevinson's painting, Paths of Glory, is a distant cry from the rallying recruitment posters which appeared at the start of the war. It depicts the bloated corpses of two dead soldiers, stretched out in the mud, against a backdrop of tangled barbed wire, somewhere on the Western Front.

Unsuprisingly, it was censored at the time.

Perhaps part of its shock value was in its title. In his Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard, the 18th century poet, Thomas Gray, had declared "the Paths of Glory lead but to the grave", but in Nevinson's painting, the two fallen soldiers are far from the comfort even of a grave in an English country churchyard, and, indeed, from any decent burial at all.

In his many years as a BBC Special Correspondent, Allan Little has witnessed some shocking scenes of war and has also reflected on the depiction of war in news footage and photography as well as in the works of contemporary war artists.

He considers the continuing power of Nevinson's painting and the role of art both in recruiting soldiers and in denouncing war.

Producer; Beaty Rubens.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b0477jvm)
Barry Guy New Orchestra

British bassist and composer Barry Guy presents his twelve-piece New Orchestra in concert.

Known for his adventurous and demanding writing, Barry Guy's music is highly scored, yet unpredictable in nature - unusual instrumental techniques, sharp-turning textures and thunderous bursts can unhinge the music at any given moment. In controlled sections of improvisation, the composer exploits the talents of experienced free players within the band, including saxophonist Evan Parker and pianist Agusti Fernandez, whilst the Baroque violin of Maya Homburger adds a contemporary classical flavour to the performance.

Here in concert at London's Cafe Oto, the New Orchestra perform brand new material, including pieces featuring smaller groupings of players from within the ensemble.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Elgar and the Zeppelin Raids on London

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

At the beginning of 1915 came the realisation that the Great War was not going to be over in three months. German cruisers had been shelling Whitby and Scarborough, and Zeppelin raids were happening over London. Keen to do his bit, Elgar joined the Hampstead Special Reserve, being called out when needed for air-raid duties. He also started to compose a work genuinely inspired by the pity of war and the inhumanity of warfare, The Spirit of England. But with the sinking of the Lusitania, riots took place in London, and xenophobia was on the rise. At this very same time, Elgar was writing his Polonia, a symphonic prelude in aid of the Polish Relief Fund. However, what the people needed more than anything, was escapism, and Elgar supplied it by returning to fairyland, with his Starlight Express.


TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b047br1d)
Great Irish Houses

Episode 1

Sean Rafferty crosses the Irish Sea this week to introduce this week's series of Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival.

This year the festival has spread its wings to include venues that include stately homes, gardens, waterways and a city gallery. Today we visit Dublin City Gallery, the National Botanic Gardens, and Kilruddy House - the 19th-century tudor revival mansion where Arabella Steinbacher and Robert Kulek play Beethoven's First Violin Sonata Op 12, which is dedicated to one of his teachers, Antonio Salieri.

Howard Ferguson was born in Belfast. During World War II, he helped Myra Hess run a morale-boosting series of concerts at the National Gallery in London. Michael Collins and Michael McHale play his romantic Four Short Pieces for clarinet and piano in another gallery, Dublin City Gallery, The Hugh Lane.

Today's concert ends with Cuarteto Casals's performance of the Dissonance Quartet by Mozart at Ireland's National Botanic Gardens. The quartet K.465 earned its nickname from the opening bars which provide the only slow introduction of Mozart's string quartets.

Beethoven: Violin Sonata in D major, Op 12 No 1

Their friendship generated poems and music which endure as a poignant reminder of their extraordinary lives.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b047bs5z)
Landmark: The Thirty-Nine Steps and World War I

The Thirty-Nine Steps first appeared in Blackwoods Magazine in August and September 1915 and depicts Europe on the edge of war in May and June 1914. It quickly became popular reading in the trenches and on the home front, and nearly a hundred years and three film adaptations later, its popularity is enduring.

In a special edition of Free Thinking, Matthew Sweet talks to Buchan's biographer Andrew Lownie and Buchan scholars Dr Michael Redley and Dr Kate Macdonald about the connections between Buchan's own war experience and The Thirty-Nine Steps, and to Professors Elleke Boehmer and Terence Ranger about how ideas about empire and adventure play out in the novel.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b047bs6t)
Minds at War: Series 1

Non-Combatants and Others

How great artists and thinkers responded to the Frst World War in individual works of art

2.Sarah LeFanu reflects on Rose Macaulay's 1916 novel, Non-Combatants and Others

Rose Macaulay is perhaps best remembered for her final novel, The Towers of Trebizond, but her biographer, Sarah LeFanu, has long believed that one of her earlier novels, Non-Combatants and Others, is a work of striking originality. She also argues for its importance to our understanding of the impact of the First World War not only on soldiers at the front but on the entire nation.

The books which have become the foundational texts of our perception and understanding of the war are all by men who had served as soldiers - Edmund Blunden, Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves - but all were written more than a decade later, when their authors had had time to shape and mediate their experiences through a process of post-war reflections.

The immediacy of Non-Combatants and Others - written and set in 1915 - is another reason for its claim to be regarded as a key text of the war.

Sarah LeFanu brings the novel alive by interweaving a re-telling of its story with her reflections on how it sheds light on Macaulay's own changing attitude to the war, and her later commitment to the League of Nations Union and the Peace Pledge Union.

Producer : Beaty Rubens.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b016vpxp)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Elgar and the Gramophone Company

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

The Great War dragged on, and by 1916 the government was forced to introduce compulsory national service. Elgar found himself touring the North of England and Scotland, with morale-raising concerts and music including To Women from The Spirit of England. But Elgar was unwell even before the war started, and war events combined with his exhausting work were dragging him down. His wife Alice refused to let Elgar accept the offer of a conducting tour of Russia, due to his ill health. He still managed though to keep working on a theme or two of his, such as his incomplete Piano Concerto, and a jingoistic work Fight for Right.


WED 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b047br1g)
Great Irish Houses

Episode 2

Sean Rafferty continues this week's series of Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival.
Michael Collins, Giovanni Guzzo & Michael McHale play Milhaud's Suite Op.157b for clarinet, violin and piano in a venue which stands in Dublin's Grand Canal - Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre. The music began life as incidental music for Jean Anouilh's play, "Le Voyageur sans Bagage" and after its success, Milhaud arranged this quasi baroque-style dance suite.
Cuarteto Casals then perform Brahms's String Quartet in C minor, Op 51 No.1, at the National Botanic Gardens in Glesnevin, Dublin. Brahms was always painstaking and self-critical. He was 40 before he published a single symphony or string quartet. In the case of the quartets, Brahms had made as many as twenty previous attempts before writing the two Opus 51 quartets in the summer of 1873.

Joan Rodgers
Sergei Leiferkus
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard

Completing its residency at the St Magnus International Festival in Orkney, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Dausgaard, one of the world's most renowned conductors, directs the BBC SSO in what promises to be an intense and moving event. Ives' iconic and atmospheric work displaces the musicians around the cathedral to pose the "ultimate question of existence" whilst Ravel's dazzling orchestration of his earlier piano work conjures up memories of friends lost in battle in WWI. After the interval in this very apt setting, we hear Shostakovich's powerful, dark and haunting reflections on the subject of death. Soprano Joan Rodgers and Baritone Sergei Leiferkus bring the poetry to life in the music.


WED 20:00 Music in the Great War (b047bt3t)
Stalking the Hun

The Scottish gamekeeper, or ghillie, was obviously an asset to hunting down an elusive prey. They had unique experience of spotting tiny movements in the landscape. Lord Lovat formed his own regiment of Scouts during the Boer War. They wore elaborate camouflage and were described as 'half wolf and half jackrabbit.' But they really came to prominence during WW1.

Stalkers and 'glassmen' were advertised for in Scottish newspapers. Lovat succeeded in extending the age limit so he could recruit one man, Macpherson of Balavil, who was 62. The youngest was 42. They worked in pairs mainly as observers rather than snipers.

By the end of the war photographic reconnaissance replaced much of their scouting duties but their skills and mentality still exists in the SAS.

In 1918 Country Life reported that the war had a disastrous effect on the marksmanship of hunters which they put down to 'jumpiness' caused by the noise of shells. So the deer of Scotland may have been an unintended beneficiary of WW1.

Minds at War: Series 1

Der Krieg

How great artists and thinkers responded to the First World War in individual works of art
Cartoonist and writer Martin Rowson reflects on Otto Dix's Der Krieg, a harrowing cycle of prints of wartime experience.

In 1924, six years after the end of hostiliies, the painter Otto Dix, who had been a machine-gunner in the German Army, produced his 51 Der Krieg prints. Gruesome, hallucinatory, and terribly frank, these postcards of conflict tell the soldier's ghastly tale.

Cartoonist Martin Rowson, whose own work is similarly direct and uncompromising, tells Dix's story, exposing what the War did to the man and ponders why Der Krieg remains such a powerful statement.

Producer: Benedict Warren.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Elgar and The Fringes of the Fleet

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

With no end in sight for the war, it continued on into 1917. This is when Elgar heard of the death of his friend and supporter Hans Richter, who had given the premiere of some of Elgar's best known works, including the Enigma Variations. Things however were starting to change in Britain, with a new government, and the introduction of convoys to protect cargo and hospital ships from the German u-boat campaign. But with the continued reports of atrocities on the front line, and increased deprivations at home, Elgar finally found the stimulus to finish his work The Spirit of England, with a setting of The Fourth of August. It wasn't only war music which Elgar concentrated on during this time, as he also composed his only ballet incorporating 18th century French costumes and classical mythology, in The Sanguine Fan.


THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b047br1j)
Great Irish Houses

Episode 3

Sean Rafferty continues this week's series of Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival. Today we visit the Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre on the waters of the Grand Canal Basin in Dublin and Kilruddy House in Co. Wicklow. Michael Collins and Michael McHale play the Debussy Première Rhapsodie, which shows off the clarinet's lyrical qualities. They are joined by violinist, Giovanni Guzzo for Stravinsky's Suite from "A Soldier's Tale" - the story of a soldier who deserts and then sells his soul to the devil in exchange for a book which will answer all his questions. Today's concert ends with Prokofiev's Violin Sonata No. 1, which he began writing in 1938 and completed after the war in 1946. The work occupies one of the darkest sonorities of all Prokofiev's work. He said that it was inspired by one of Handel's violin sonatas and the four-movement structure, slow-fast-slow-fast, follows the outline of a Baroque church sonata,

Debussy: Première Rhapsodie
Michael Collins (clarinet), Michael McHale, (piano)

Stravinsky: Suite from A Soldier's Tale

Live from Watford Colosseum
Presented by Ian Skelly

As part of the BBC's World War One centenary season, the BBC Concert Orchestra looks at life through the lens of prisoners held in two wartime internment camps; one in London at Alexandra Palace and one in Germany at Ruhleben racecourse near Berlin.

Made up of men of fighting age who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, both camps formed orchestras. Together they put on concerts for their fellow captives, maintaining their sense of self and the spirit of their homelands. The orchestra performs a selection of music played and written in the camps whilst actor Alex Wyndham (The Crimson Field, BBC) reads letters and poetry to tell the real-life story of the prisoners.

Minds at War: Series 1

The Memorandum on the Neglect of Science

How great artists and thinkers responded to the First World War in individual works of art.

Professor David Edgerton of King's College London reflects on the Memorandum on the Neglect of Science, a 1916 clarion-call from the British scientific establishment.

In a letter to The Times that year, many of the great names of British science declared their belief that both academic and applied science were being treated as Cinderella subjects. The Germans, they surmised, had got their act together and were outflanking the British military effort in chemical warfare, armaments and generally taking science more seriously.

They continued by observing that the entrance examinations for Oxford and Cambridge Universities and the civil service, were weighted towards the Classics rather than sciences. Was this the first stirrings CP Snow's Two Cultures debate?

David Edgerton, the Hans Rausing Professor of the History of Science and Technology and Professor of Modern British History, at King's College London, finds out what was going on at the time and looks at how the First World War advanced British science.

Armistice Declared, But No Celebration for Elgar

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

By 1918, Elgar had stomach problems and was continually unwell, finally being operated on to remove his tonsils. Compared to what hundreds of thousands were enduring in the trench warfare of the first world war, this was no great thing, but Elgar was 61 and not in great shape. Once installed with his wife in a rustic thatched cottage in West Sussex to recuperate, his creativity started to flow again, in particular sketching out a germ of a theme on his piano entitled "?", which would later become part of his Cello Concerto. There were also more rustic pursuits, including gardening and fishing, but then came an official request from the Ministry of Food for a new war work, Big Steamers. When the Armistice was signed, with his Land of Hope and Glory proving ever popular, Elgar did not feel inclined to compose any work in celebration of peace. Many of his friends had died, and his life was dramatically changed for ever.

Episode 4

Sean Rafferty brings this week's series of Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the Great Music in Irish Houses Festival to a close with visits to Dublin City Gallery, Ireland's National Botanic Gardens, and Waterways Ireland Visitor Centre which is situated on the waters of the Grand Canal Basin in Dublin. Michael Collins and Michael McHale begin with Arnold Bax's Clarinet Sonata of 1934. Bax dedicated it to Hugh Prew, an amateur clarinettist who was a fellow-cricketer in his brother Clifford Bax's 'Old Broughtonians' cricket team. Cuarteto Casals play Ligeti's First Quartet, subtitled Métamorphoses nocturnes, which is indebted to Bartók for its folk-infused passages. Bartók composed his striking Contrasts for violin, clarinet and piano, for the eminent Hungarian violinist Joseph Szigeti, famed clarinettist Benny Goodman and himself - Bartók was a fine pianist. All three performers must have enjoyed the convergence of musical styles - jazz and classical - and the variety moods and tempos. Today's Lunchtime Concert closes with a performance by Michael Collins (clarinet), Giovanni Guzzo (violin) and Michael McHale (piano).

8.25 pm:
Morfydd Owen: Morfa Rhuddlan
Kelly: Elegy for strings: "in memoriam Rupert Brooke"
Ian Parrott: Luxor

George Butterworth was one of many young composers whose careers were tragically cut short by the Great War. His rhapsody explores the world of A.E Housmann's poem "A Shropshire lad", a reflection on the senselessness of the Boer War. It's regarded as a minature masterpiece, perfectly encapsulating the futility of war filtered through his love of English folksong. When war broke out in 1914, a million Belgians fled their country with some 100,000 coming to Britain. Among them was organist and composer Joseph Jongen, who made a new home in Bournemouth - though he took his summer holidays in North Wales. The Cello Concerto displays his melodic charm whilst embracing the eloquence of Wagner and the delicacy of Debussy. David van der Woestijne was born in 1915, to refugee Belgian parents at the Lion Hotel in Llandinam, Powys, and went on to become a leading Belgian composer. Like Butterworth, Morfydd Owen was also deeply influenced by folk music she found around her. The Welsh tune Morfa Rhuddlan commemmorates a savage battle between the Welsh and the Saxons in the eighth century.

In 1914, the Autralian composer Frederick Kelly joined the Royal Navy alongside the poet Rupert Brooke. Together they sailed for Gallipoli but Brooke died on route, and Kelly was one of the party who buried him on the Greek island of Skyros in 1915. Kelly was moved to write an elegy to his friend as a tender lasting memorial. The following year he was killed in the last days of the Battle of the Somme.

Ian Parrot was Gregynog Professor of Music at University College of Wales, Aberystwyth (1949-83), and second Artistic Director of the Gregynog Festival (1956-61). His time in the Royal Signals Corps took him to Egypt, and the experience there influenced his early compositions. Whilst in Cairo he even found time to write a complete opera, "The Sergeant-Major's Daughter", but it was his symphonic impression of the temple of Luxor, which earned him greatest success, winning first prize from the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1949.

Thoughts for the Times on War and Death

How great artists and thinkers responded to the First World War in individual works of art, literature and scholarship

5.Michal Shapira on Sigmund Freud's Thoughts for the Times on War and Death, a text written in Vienna in 1915, expressing his dismay as the war progressed.

The declaration of war in 1914 was initially met with jubilation by the people of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and, in Vienna, Sigmund Freud shared the general mood

But, like his fellow-citizens, Freud expected a quick war. By February 1915, with two of his sons fighting and thousands of injured and traumatised soldiers returning from the front, Freud's feelings had changed.

Dr Michal Shapira reflects on his Thoughts for the Times on War and Death and considers how it prefigures some of his later, better-known works on war and the death-drive.

Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin, Commonwealth Connections Part 21

Lopa Kothari with our series Commonwealth Connections, exploring the music of Singapore and Tuvalu, plus Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin live in session.

Commonwealth Connections - Feature: Singapore
Singapore is home to a very senior group of 'waijiang' musicians originating from Chaozhou in southern China. Their waijiang style of playing was popular in pre-cultural revolutionary China but is now extinct on the mainland. Yet in their small shop house in the Geylang neighbourhood these senior gentlemen still take pride in performing pieces such as 'Little Peach Red' and 'Pipa verse'. Not far away in Chinatown a group of young students from the Siong Leng Musical Association practice Nanyin or 'southern pipes music' - the traditional wooden flute and voice reminisce wistfully of home.

Commonwealth Connections - Heritage Feature
Formerly known as the Ellice Islands, Tuvalu is a Pacific island nation situated between Hawaii and Australia. Its population of just 11,200 means it the third-least populous sovereign state in the world, and in terms of land mass at ten square miles it's the fourth-smallest country in the world. If you stand in the middle of the main island you can see the Pacific Ocean in every direction. Tuvalu first took part in the Commonwealth Games in 1998 and since then has steadily increased its participation. But Tuvalu weightlifter Lapua Lapua isn't just an Olympian - he's a bit of a singer and guitarist too, and gave us a taste of the Pacific. The song is "Toku nukupele funafuti" by Tamaika Kofe.

Session: Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin
Phillip Henry, one of the UK's top slide guitar player and master of the Dobro, and Hannah Martin, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, join us live in the studio for an exclusive session before they rush off to Glastonbury.
