SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b03y10fw)
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.

Wigmore Hall: Trio di Clarone

Live from Wigmore Hall, London.

Trio di Clarone

Having inspired 18th century composers such as Mozart to write seminal works in his concerto and quintet, the clarinet was still a relatively new instrument during the 19th century. Technological advances in instrument making rapidly brought it into the mainstream and later composers such as Mendelssohn were inspired by the virtuoso playing of performers such as his good friend Heinrich Baermann. Trio di Clarone have been exploring this music for many years and bring the fruits of their journey to Wigmore Hall in works by Mendelssohn, Bruch and Schumann.

Mendelssohn: Concert piece No 2 in D minor, Op 114

Sir Andrew Davis (conductor)

The largest classical music festival in the world, the BBC Proms also boasts one of the mightiest venues. The Royal Albert Hall is a monument to the same Victorian pomp and splendour that swells through Edward Elgar's music. What better way to open this season than with the composer's biblical oratorio The Kingdom - the beautiful 'slow movement' of a musical triptych that started with The Apostles, but that would remain unfinished at Elgar's death.

Celebrated Elgarian and Proms favourite Sir Andrew Davis, a Conductor Laureate of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, returns in his 70th-birthday year, joined by a distinguished cast of soloists.

There are many types of kisses: the innocent first kisses of a baby, kisses of affection, the first romantic kiss, ritual kisses and the kisses of betrayal.

Music includes Stravinsky's 'The Fairy's Kiss' and Irving Berlin's 'Kiss me Honey'.


SUN 19:00 Between the Ears (b01pz2rr)
Mighty Beast

Sean Borodale's long poem, Mighty Beast, was created using interviews, a range of voices and overheard conversations he gathered from many visits to cattle markets in towns across Somerset, where he lives. This radio documentary version is told in the voice of the auctioneer: a brilliant, shifting stream of patter that is by turns harsh, lyrical, cajoling, admonitory and consoling. Through this tour de force of poetic writing come the real voices of some of the people who inspired the poem, men whose memories are of the gradual gaining of skills and experience, of childhoods spent in a landscape that has changed beyong retrieval, and the deep love for the animals who provide their livelihood. These voices, real and imagined, are given a rich and lyrical soundscape created by composer Elizabeth Purnell.

The auctioneer is played by Christopher Bianchi
The poem is written by Sean Borodale
The soundscape is created by Elizabeth Purnell
The Producer is Sara Davies.

Now well into its second decade, the scheme has acquired the reputation of being a world leader for young artists. Every autumn six to seven artists or groups who are beginning to make a mark on the national and international music scene are invited to join the scheme, which offers them unique opportunities to develop their considerable talents. These include concerts in London and around the UK, appearances and recordings with the BBC Orchestras, special studio recordings for Radio 3, and, last but not least, appearances at the Proms.

Today, another chance to hear a recording made last year by a recent graduate of the NGA scheme, soprano Ruby Hughes, of George Crumb's Apparition.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04b2b0m)
Leos Janacek (1854-1928)

Folklorist and Teacher

For most of his life, Leoš Janácek was known primarily as a folklorist and teacher and didn't achieve international recognition as a composer until he was into his sixties. He was a man of immense drive and determination and, alongside his passion for the folk music of his native Moravia, Janácek improved the standard of music-making and music education in Brno where he spent most of his life.
Donald Macleod introduces works from the years leading up to Janacek's first big success including a sample of the wealth of folk songs he collected, a ghostly orchestral ballad, a piano piece written at a time of personal and professional crisis, and part of the opera which finally put Janácek's career as a serious composer firmly on the map.

Proms Chamber Music 1: Les Arts Florissants

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Leading period-instrument ensemble Les Arts Florissants launches the Proms Chamber Music series with the first of its two Proms appearances marking 250 years since the death of Jean-Philippe Rameau. France's leading Baroque composer, whom some have called the 'French Bach', proved more progressive than Lully, more virtuosic than Couperin. This lunchtime Les Arts Florissants appears on an intimate scale, performing Rameau's only chamber music - the lively and virtuosic Pièces de clavecin en concerts. With movements named after people, places and moods, each is a miniature character study, an evocative musical portrait.

Rameau: Premier concert : La Coulicam, La Livri - Rondeau gracieux, Le Vézinet
Rameau: Deuxième concert : La Laborde, La Boucon, L'Agaçante, Premier Menuet et Deuxième Menuet
Rameau: Troisième concert : La Lapoplinière, La Timide, Premier Tambourin et Deuxième Tambourin en Rondeau
Rameau: Quatrième concert : La Pantomime, L'Indiscrète, La Rameau
Rameau: Cinquième concert : La Forqueray, La Cupis, La Marais

Of One Mind - A Murmuration of Starlings

Have you ever seen one of those wonderful twisters in the sky consisting entirely of starlings - flocking and dancing in their hundreds of thousands?
Known as a murmuration, the dancing twisting patterns must be one of the most magical sights, and sounds, in the natural world, and can be seen in city and countryside right across the UK.

Ham Wall, in the Avalon Marshes, close to Glastonbury Tor, in Somerset, is home to one of the most spectacular murmurations, and at dawn and dusk over 500,000 starlings take to the skies in great clouds, unpredictable in their numbers and behaviour, but worth seeking out for natural drama.

So why do the murmurations happen, and how do the birds avoid crashing into each other whilst flying? The latest theory is known as scale free correlation - how birds like starlings appear to share one mind.

David Bramwell, musician and keen amateur bird watcher takes his chance to share the sharp eyes and ears of ornithologist, Tony Whitehead of the RSPB, and musician and artist, Kathy Hinde, on a mission to film and record the starlings mysterious patterns and dramatic sounds, using both in concerts and exhibitions.

When you have heard a murmuration on such a scale you may wonder why they are not called a 'jet engine'.... such is the volume of half a million birds taking off at dawn.

MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (b039p1bz)
Living and Present: Laurie Anderson on Performance Art

Pioneering artist Laurie Anderson traces the roots of performance art - the most daring and popular of contemporary art forms, which blurs the boundaries of art, theatre and dance.

More and more artists are drawing on the live quality of performance in their work: the artist Marina Abramovic was present for three months in New York's Museum of Modern Art for visitors to lock eyes with, silent and motionless; this year's prestigious Venice Biennale Golden Lion prize was given to the performance artist Tino Sehgal; and the newest addition to the Tate are the Tate Tanks, dedicated to Performance art. But what is this transient medium and where has it come from?

Laurie Anderson, famous for bringing her song O Superman to the British pop charts in the 1980s, focuses on this innovative and elusive art form, drawing out the qualities of ritual and gathering, pain and endurance. She turns to the earliest recordings of the Futurist artist, Marinetti's Zang Tumb Tumb, the actions of German artist Joseph Beuys; the influence of John Cage in contrast to the risk of Yoko Ono, the sexual politics of Vito Acconci, the confrontation of the Viennese Actionists or British artist Stuart Brisley's offal bath and the explosive shock of Chris Burden's Shoot.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03bfm1f)
Praising Powell and Pressburger

The Red Shoes

Continuing the Sound of Cinema season, ballerina, writer and broadcaster Deborah Bull gives a dancer's take on Powell and Pressburger's best-known film, the 1948 classic 'The Red Shoes', starring Moira Shearer, and based on the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, together known as The Archers, were one of the most influential and audacious film-makers of the 1930s and 40s. Their groundbreaking works include: 'The Red Shoes', 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp', 'A Matter of Life and Death' and 'Black Narcissus'.

Writen and read by Deborah Bull. Bull joined The Royal Ballet in 1981 and became a Principal Ballerina in 1992. After her 20-year career in ballet, she went on to become Creative Director of the Royal Opera House, as well as an author and broadcaster. She is currently Director of Cultural Partnerships at King's College, London.
Producer: Justine Willett.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04b2bpy)

Jez Nelson presents three acts from the London-based Loop Collective at his monthly Jazz in the Round night.

Trumpeter Rory Simmons brings his trio Monocled Man featuring guitarist Chris Montague and drummer Jon Scott, in which fiery lines and hard-hitting post-rock grooves meet with expansive, brooding soundscapes. Keys player and electronics expert Dan Nicholls performs an intriguing solo set on a one-of-a-kind instrument - his self-made 'kalimba keyboard', an upsized and amplified thumb piano, manipulated through effects and processing. Plus we've time for some Wedding Music, the title of Kit Downes and Tom Challenger's organ and sax collaboration that explores the subtle nuances of improvised textures, here in the intimate setting of the Cockpit Theatre in Marylebone, London.

Producer: Chris Elcombe

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04b2gsc)
Leos Janacek (1854-1928)

A Passionate Nature

One of Janácek's favourite places was the peaceful village of Hukvaldy where he'd been born and where, in 1921, he bought a cottage in which he could compose, away from the hectic life of Brno. Shortly afterwards he began work on the opera in which he was able to combine two of his passions - for the natural world which had always been an essential part of his life, and for Kamila Stösslová, the married woman with whom he became obsessed. Donald Macleod introduces this everyday tale of Vixen Sharp-Ears, and Janácek's next opera, whose enigmatic heroine was also inspired by Kamila. Elina Makropulos has lived for over three centuries and, as the elixir which has kept her alive begins to wear off, she realises that there's only one possible solution to her joyless existence.

Now well into its second decade, the scheme has acquired the reputation of being a world leader for young artists. Every autumn six to seven artists or groups who are beginning to make a mark on the national and international music scene are invited to join the scheme, which offers them unique opportunities to develop their considerable talents. These include concerts in London and around the UK, appearances and recordings with the BBC Orchestras, special studio recordings for Radio 3, and, last but not least, appearances at the Proms.

The legendary Pet Shop Boys make their Proms debut in this Late Night Prom, joining the BBC Singers and BBC Concert Orchestra for the world premiere of A Man from the Future, a new piece for electronics, orchestra, choir and narrator.
The piece is inspired by the life and work of Alan Turing, who helped break the German Enigma code during the Second World War and formulated the concept of the digital computer, but was prosecuted in 1952 for his homosexuality, receiving a posthumous pardon last year. It comes as a timely homage, 60 years after Turing's death.
The concert also includes new orchestral arrangements by renowned film composer Angelo Badalamenti of five Pet Shop Boys songs chosen by Tennant and Lowe, in which they are joined by Chrissie Hynde, as well as the exuberant overture to their 1991 tour, Performance, heard live in concert for the first time.

Leos Janacek (1854-1928)

Reminiscence

Janácek's 70th birthday was celebrated with concerts in Prague and Brno, the publication of his biography and an Honorary PhD from Brno University, which pleased him most of all.

Donald Macleod introduces two remarkably youthful works Janácek composed around that time - an exuberant wind sextet and a group of choral settings of nonsense rhymes he came across in the children's supplement of his local paper, as well as a rhapsodic piece for cello and piano inspired by a Russian epic poem.

He begins the programme with Schubert's Four Impromptus, D. 899 - the four pieces were written and published in 1827, the year before the composer's death.

Proms 2014 Repeats

Prom 7: Shostakovich, Bartok and Tavener

Afternoon on 3 with Verity Sharp

The BBC Symphony Orchestra and Jirí Belohlávek at last night's BBC Proms. Shostakovich's 10th Symphony, Isabelle Faust in Bartok's 2nd Violin Concerto and a John Tavener premiere.

Presented by Penny Gore at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Tavener: Gnosis (BBC commission; world premiere)
Bartók: Violin Concerto No. 2

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93

Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano)
Michael Cox (alto flute)
Isabelle Faust (violin)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Jirí Belohlávek (conductor)

Isabelle Faust's association with Bartók extends back to her very first recording. Now, fresh from an acclaimed disc of both the composer's violin concertos, she joins the BBC SO and Conductor Laureate Jirí Belohlávek for Bartók's Second Violin Concerto. Written under the threat of Fascism, it's a passionate national statement, lively with folk rhythms.

By the early 1950s and Shostakovich's 10th Symphony, threat had become reality. This violent, despairing work paints a vivid portrait of the horrors of Stalin's Russia. The evening opened with the first of two posthumous premieres this season from the late John Tavener - some of the last works from England's great musical mystic. Gnosis, written for mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly with solo alto flute, strings and percussion.

First broadcast 23rd July 2014.

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b03brsc5)
Fear and Trembling in Copenhagen - In Search of Soren Kierkegaard

Nigel Warburton travels to Copenhagen to explore the life and writings of Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard - often called the father of existentialism - in his bicentenary year.

In Denmark today the name Kierkegaard evokes a mix of pride and uncertainty. His mix of earnestness and irony - angst and comedy, influenced many thinkers and writers in the twentieth century: from Wittgenstein, Jean Paul Sartre and W H Auden, to Woody Allen. But he remains difficult to categorise.

His name means 'graveyard' - fitting for a man often referred to as the father of existentialism: now a byword for angst and despair. But Kierkegaard was an eccentric, paradoxical writer, who can be read in many ways. An anti-intellectualist yet profoundly intellectual; deeply Christian but relentlessly critical of the Church; a philosopher, who hated most philosophy, and a poet, some even say a novelist, who never really wrote poems or novels.

On location in Denmark Nigel Warburton travels to his old apartments and walks the streets this eccentric man took his inspiration from. He also visits the cathedral which Kierkegaard spent his last years attacking, and asks what this controversial Christian thinker can offer us in a highly secular age.

Praising Powell and Pressburger

Black Narcissus

"It is all done by suggestion, but eroticism is in every frame and image from beginning to end. It is a film full of wonderful performances and passion just below the surface, which finally, at the end of the film, erupts", Michael Powell

Continuing the Sound of Cinema season, film critic Peter Bradshaw looks at Powell and Pressburger's sensuous 1947 melodrama, 'Black Narcissus'.

Set in a convent in an isolated Himalayan valley, in which tensions are running high, Black Narcissus was based on the 1939 novel of the same name by Rumer Godden. It stars Deborah Kerr, Kathleen Byron and Jean Simmons, and was described by Michael Powell described as the most erotic film he ever made.

Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, together known as The Archers, were one of the most influential and audacious film-makers of the 1930s and 40s. Their groundbreaking works include: 'The Red Shoes', 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp', 'A Matter of Life and Death' and 'Black Narcissus'.

MUSIC FEATURE: India
Kala Ramnath is one of the leading Hindustani musicians of her generation. Born into a dynasty of violin players who championed the instrument in Indian classical music in the 20th century, Kala has developed the instrument still further with a mixture of traditional and improvisational repertoire. In her home in Mumbai, Kala demonstrates just how closely the violin is modelled on the human voice.

HERITAGE FEATURE: Nauru
Measuring eight square miles with a total coastline of eighteen and a half miles and a population of just over nine thousand, the Pacific island of Nauru is arguably the least populous actual sovereign country in the world, although officially the Vatican State and then Monaco occupy the first and second spots. Situated in Micronesia, Nauru lies 2,800 miles north east of Australia, and used to be called Pleasant Island before independence in 1968. Itte Detenamo is a super heavyweight lifter, and his chosen music is of Nauruan songs composed by Baron Waqa, a songwriter who is currently the nation's President.
