Leonardo García Alarcón, direction

The Flood in music: Michelangelo Falvetti, maestro di cappella at Messina Cathedral during the 1680s, is today a relatively neglected figure but his compositions burst with imagination and gripping drama. Il diluvio universale is a sacred 'dialogue' oratorio, in which there is no joined-up narrative, but in which the soloists and chorus take roles in a sequence of dramatic tableaux. The subject is The Flood, and the cast includes God, Noah and his wife and a chorus of drowning folk, as well as Death, Divine Justice, Human Nature and the Four Elements.

Please note Skylarking is a lawn-based, horizontal radio feature best experienced from the comfort of a picnic blanket with a long drink, a soft pillow and a view of the sky.

This episode of Between the Ears was produced by Cathy FitzGerald and Matt Thompson. Original music and sound design by Joe Acheson (Hidden Orchestra), featuring clarinettist Tomas Dvorak and cellist Su-a Lee.
Skylarking is a Rockethouse Production for BBC Radio 3.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b048bgjd)
Luca Francesconi's Quartett, Composers' Rooms: Harrison Birtwistle

Tom Service presents the eagerly anticipated UK premiere of Luca Francesconi's Quartett and Sara Mohr Pietsch meets Sir Harrison Birtwistle in Composers' Rooms.
Premiered at La Scala in Milan in 2011, Francesconi's chamber opera is a setting of Heiner Müller's sensational play, Quartett from 1980, which was in turn inspired by the famous epistolary novel Les Liaisons dangereuses (1782) by Pierre-Ambroise-François Choderlos de Laclos. In Müller's radical reworking only two roles have remained: the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont. But the Quartett of the title still exists as, in a succession of perverse role playing, Merteuil and Valmont play out their doubles. Set in a 'Salon before the French Revolution/Bunker after the Third World War,' Francesconi exposes the abyss of base human instincts in an endgame of fear and greed.

Music in the Great War: Pat Barker

Writer Pat Barker is fascinated by the First World War; for twenty years now, her award-winning novels have returned again and again to the trauma and grief and erotic intensity of wartime. Her novels draw on the experiences of real people: Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, and in particular the army doctor W.H. Rivers, a pioneering psychiatrist who treated victims of shell shock. As this centenary year opens, with all its commemorations of the First World War, Pat Barker talks about why and how we should remember War - and about the power of fiction to tell historical truth.

She reveals that her fascination with war began as a child; she was brought up by her grandparents, and her grandfather had a bayonet wound which she saw every time he washed at the kitchen sink. 'Through my grandfather and my stepfather, I have a direct link through to the world before the war - for me it's not simply reading history.' Pat Barker herself was a war baby - born in 1943 after her mother, a Wren, had a one-night stand with a man in the RAF. She never traced her father, and that central mystery in her life, 'half my identity missing', was part of what drove her to write. She talks about the stigma her mother faced as an unmarried mother, and in a moving section of the interview she wishes she could speak to her mother now to tell her 'It doesn't matter'.

Pat Barker's music choices include her grandfather's favourite music hall song - his party piece as a boy in the 1890s; Anton Lesser reading two poems by Wilfred Owen, and Benjamin Britten's setting of Wilfred Owen in his 'Nocturne'; Butterworth's 'The Banks of Green Willow'; original cast recordings from Joan Littlewood's 'Oh What a Lovely War'; and Elgar's Cello Concerto, in the famous recording by Jacqueline du Pré.

First broadcast 05/01/2014.

CPE Bach in Berlin

Piers Adams continues to celebrate CPE Bach's 300th anniversary year with a visit to Berlin's Charlottenburg Palace, where Emanuel Bach arrived as an optimistic 26 year old to join the court of Prussia's flute-playing King Frederick the Great.

In a guided tour though the palace we hear how Emanuel Bach's adventurous musical style was not to the King's conservative tastes, and so he spent much of the next 28 years trying to leave the court - but not before he had established himself as Europe's most famous keyboard player and teacher. Emanuel also found a valuable friend in Frederick's sister Anna Amalia, herself an accomplished musician and also something of a court outcast, having secretly married and become pregnant against the King's wishes. We hear movements from CPE Bach's String Symphonies and from his Prussian Sonatas, from new recordings issued to celebrate the anniversary.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b048rqqb)
World War One: Cradle of Jazz

In 1917, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band made what are generally regarded as the first jazz records. But where did this music come from? What changes were going on during the period of World War One that prompted the musical and social changes that led to the jazz age of the roaring twenties? Alyn Shipton sets out to chart the evolution of jazz from ragtime at a time when few recordings exist to document the emergence of this new musical form.

His journey takes him across America on the TOBA circuit of African-American Theatres, where vaudeville acts and blues singers pioneered musical change, and to Britain and France, where black entertainers offered light relief to those in the grip of the war. We hear from Alyn's historical Radio 3 interviews with big band pioneer Jesse Stone, who formed his first band in 1918, and trumpeter Doc Cheatham, who served his apprenticeship on the wartime theatre circuit, as well as archive interviews with Jelly Roll Morton and Willie "The Lion" Smith.

There's music from Scott Joplin, James P Johnson, James Reese Europe, and Ma Rainey, plus European recordings by Dan Kildare and Gordon Stretton among others. Alyn also talks to music historians Paul Oliver, James Lincoln Collier and Howard Rye to find out whether the war itself was the catalyst for musical change.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b048bh41)
Life in the Tomb

A masterwork of Greek fiction, Life in the Tomb provides a different perspective on the anniversary of the Great War. This new dramatisation from leading playwright April De Angelis in her first radio dramatisation features an original score by award winning composer Errollyn Wallen.

Originally published as extracts in a national Greek newspaper, the book takes the form of a series of letters from a young soldier back to his girlfriend in Lesvos, as his platoon moves deeper into trench warfare. Myrivilis based the book on his own experience of fighting on the Macedonian front. The book is so honest about how appalling conditions were and how badly the army was managed that it was banned on publication.

Stratis Myrivilis's book brilliantly captures a complex Southern European view of World War I. Our narrator meets a wide range of nationalities on his journey to the trenches. The incidents he describes are rich and often unexpected - the Macedonian family who care for him when wounded, the enemy soldier with the voice of an angel and the Chinese cart driver who helps him when lost. The narrator is moving, unwittingly, towards his own death, a tragic accident in the last days of the conflict.

Stratis Myrivilis was a prolific author, nominated by the Greek society of authors for the Nobel Prize in 1960.

April De Angelis is a leading playwright. She has been produced by the Royal Court, the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company and Hampstead Theatre. Recent productions include Playhouse Creatures at Chichester and Jumpy at The Duke of Yorks.

Errollyn Wallen is an award-winning composer and singer, whose work has been commissioned by the BBC, Brodsky Quartet and Royal Opera House amongst many others.

MON 17:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b048bk9g)
Wagner's Gotterdammerung

Adam Tomlinson introduces a semi-staged performance of Wagner's Götterdämmerung - The Twilght of the Gods - from the Leeds Town Hall, concluding Opera North's highly praised four-year Nibelung Cycle.
In the previous opera in Wagner's tetralogy - Die Walküre - we left the hero Siegfried doting over his new found love Brünnhilde. In Götterdämmerung, that love is tested by bitter betrayal, brought about by the machinations of Hagen, son of the Nibelung Alberich (the one who stole the gold from the Rhinemaidens, fashioned the The Ring, then put a curse upon it plunging the whole world into turmoil and strife). Only Brünnhilde's love and self-sacrifice can bring about redemption for mankind. But the cost will be an end to the days of gods.

The musical and dramatic power of Götterdämmerung is awe-inspiring: it includes Siegfried's Rhine Journey; the mighty chorus of the Gibichung vassals; Siegfried's Funeral March and Brünnhilde's tour-de-force, the Immolation Scene.

In this presentation, recorded last month, Adam Tomlinson is joined by 19th-century opera expert Anastasia Belina-Johnson.

Götterdämmerung is sung in German.

Goodbye to All That

Elif Shafak

Taking Robert Graves' phrase Goodbye to All That as their starting point, five writers from countries involved in the First World War reflect on a turning point moment in their own histories and interpret the phrase with the ambiguity that Graves intended.

These five essays that have been curated by writer Lavinia Greenlaw to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One, as part of 14-18 Now, a major cultural programme across the United Kingdom.

Tonight, Elif Shafak contemplates a point of no return in the history of her native country, Turkey.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03k0nqz)
Mehliana at the 2013 London Jazz Festival

A second chance to hear one of the highlights from last year's London Jazz Festival - Mehliana, in concert at the Barbican Centre.

Mehliana brings together US pianist Brad Mehldau, one of the most influential musicians of his generation, with a drummer about whom Time Out London asked "What happens when you add hard drum bop masters Elvin Jones and Art Blakey to a 1980s Roland 808 drum machine, divide the result by J Dilla and multiply to the power of Squarepusher? The answer: Mark Guiliana."

With Mehldau on Fender Rhodes and an array of vintage synthesizers alongside Guiliana on drums and effects, their freewheeling improvisations explore and humanize the world of electronic music, touching on everything from free jazz to drum & bass to baroque music and 70s dance funk.

Producers: Peggy Sutton and Chris Elcombe.

She has written two more novels in the Chocolat series: The Lollipop Shoes and Peaches for Monsieur le Curé, as well as two French cookbooks (co-written with Fran Warde). In 2007 she published Runemarks, a fantasy novel based on Norse mythology, aimed at both children and adults.

Dietrich Buxtehude (1637-1707)

Visitors

In today's programme Donald Macleod explores some of the musicians who travelled to hear Dieterich Buxtehude perform. One day towards the end of 1705, a young man of twenty turned up at Buxtehude's door at St. Mary's church in Lübeck. He introduced himself as Johann Sebastian Bach. He had heard about Buxtehude's legendary organ playing and had walked all the way from Arnstadt ? 280 miles away ? to hear him play in person. Bach had taken leave of his post for four weeks. He stayed for three months. On his return, Bach got into trouble on two counts: for staying away so long, and for now playing the chorales in such a bizarre way that the congregation was thoroughly confused.

Thursday Opera Matinee

Rossini - Tancredi

Rossini's Tancredi has a plot whose convoluted complications risk making even the most committed operaphile go cross-eyed. Suffice to say that, set in 11th century Syracuse, it features two endlessly feuding families (think Romeo and Juliet), a father who condemns to death his own daughter, a love triangle (of course), mistaken identity and a knight in shining armour.

But more to the point, Tancredi is one of Rossini's most lyrical works and contains numbers like 'Di tanti palpiti' which became a hit all over Europe and still wows audiences today. This recording was made at the recent highly acclaimed production at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Paris, and features an international cast, led by the celebrated Canadian coloratura contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux as the eponymous knight.

Kalenda Maya: Folias and Dances from Palace and Desert

East meets West in this colourful evocation of medieval music from all around the Mediterranean. In the twelfth and thirteenth centuries Spain was a melting pot, where Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures co-existed, where Provençal troubadours and Arabic musicians could meet and exchange ideas. Manuscripts associated with the Castilian court of Alfonso X ''the Wise'' show illustrations of musicians playing instruments that look remarkably similar to those still played in North Africa, the Middle East and around the Adriatic today, and this has inspired Jordi Savall to gather together a group of musicians from east and west to recreate the lost sounds of medieval Spain, Provence and Italy in the context of traditional music from Armenia, Persia and Turkey.

An account from just after Buxtehude's death, in 1707, gives a clue as to the fate that befell much of his music: "Everything that [such] men wrote with so much trouble and work... has not the slightest value now... much of it has gone into the stove, in place of kindling, much has been given to people who can use all sorts of scarps and paper in their shops... for nothing is more useless than old music.".

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b048nh2t)
Goodbye to All That

Jeanette Winterson

Taking Robert Graves' phrase Goodbye to All That as their starting point, five writers from countries involved in the First World War reflect on a turning point moment in their own histories and interpret the phrase with the ambiguity that Graves intended.

These five essays that have been curated by writer Lavinia Greenlaw to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One, as part of 14-18 Now, a major cultural programme across the United Kingdom.

Tonight, Jeanette Winterson examines her own sense that recent years have seen a turning point in British attitudes to the importance of the arts.

Written and read by Jeanette Winterson
Produced by Emma Harding.

Commonwealth Connections 23

Lopa Kothari with the Commonwealth Connections series, exploring the music of Bangladesh and Kiribati,
plus a live session by Tulipa, and the latest new World Music releases.

COMMONWEALTH FEATURE / Bangladesh
On a rooftop beside Gulshan lake, above the bells of tuk tuks and sounds of the call to prayer, a group of musicians have gathered in the late afternoon in Dhaka. Baby Dewan sings Bhatiyali songs of the lonely boatmen who ply the waters here for a living and Baul musician Rob Fakir shares the mystical music and philosophy of one of the legendary Bauls of Bangladesh, Lalon Shah.

HERITAGE FEATURE / Kiribati
Kiribati is an archipelago of 33 islands in the central Pacific, with a population of just one hundred thousand people across more than a million square miles of Ocean. Formerly the Gilbert Islands, Kiribati gained independence from the UK in 1979, and has participated in the Commonwealth Games since 1998. Weightlifter David Katoata became the first person from the country to formally qualify for the Olympics, and came 17th in London two years ago. His favourite Kiribati group is called Ruff Dogs with their song Salute.

SESSION: Tulipa
Brazilian singer-songwriter Tulipa visit the studio for a live session.
