SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b03j99mm)
Singing for Britten

Benjamin Britten was notoriously particular about the professional musicians he worked with (a close-knit circle of friends) and he had famously high musical standards. Yet all his life he embraced working with amateurs and children. John Bridcut tracks down amateur singers from Suffolk and beyond to share their experiences of singing for Britten - and to discover why it was so special.

John Bridcut sang for Britten as a student in 1971, on the recording of Elgar's Dream of Gerontius. It's an experience he will never forget:

'How I wish I could remember every moment of those recording sessions. But at the time I was far too busy getting the notes right. What has stayed with me is Britten's crystal-clear beat, and his nervous intensity. He demanded the most of you. When he first appeared, he greeted our chorus master with a kiss on both cheeks - that sort of thing was quite rare in those days - and the whole of the London Symphony Chorus cheered!'

John returns to Suffolk, to Britten's Snape Maltings, to swap memories with two fellow singers from that summer more than forty years ago. He also talks to long-standing members of Britten's 'house choir', the Aldeburgh Festival Singers; Suffolk children who sang for Britten in the 1940s and 1950s; and two retired doctors who've not seen each other since they sang on Britten's celebrated recording of his War Requiem as schoolboys.

Britten worked with amateur singers right to the end of his career. John Bridcut asks what he drew from them, and why working with amateurs was so central to his vision of music being 'useful, and to the living'.

Producers: Jane Greenwood and Elizabeth Burke

Clemency Burton-Hill presents another programme in this summer series showcasing the talents of the BBC's New Generation Artists.

As part of the BBC's commitment to developing and nurturing young talent, BBC Radio 3 launched its New Generation Artists scheme in the autumn of 1999. 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.

Tonight's programme focuses on the multi-talented Mark Simpson, clarinettist and composer.

Camilla Tilling (soprano)
London Symphony Orchestra
Bernard Haitink (conductor)

The London Symphony Orchestra returns to the Proms, joined by noted Mahlerian Bernard Haitink, for the composer's Fourth Symphony.

Famously described as a 'pearl of great price', Schubert's Fifth Symphony presents Classical perfection on a miniature scale. This compact symphony glows with melody and is as light on its feet as anything the composer ever wrote.

Prom 41: Aurora Orchestra

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Christopher Cook

The Aurora Orchestra and Nicholas Collon live at the BBC Proms in music by Dobrinka Tabakova, the world premiere of Benedict Mason's Meld, and Mozart's Symphony no 40

Mozart: Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K550

Dobrinka Tabakova: Spinning a Yarn

Benedict Mason: Meld (BBC commission: world premiere)

Alexandra Wood (violin) (Proms debut artist)
Stevie Wishart (hurdy-gurdy)
Chantage
Aurora Orchestra
Nicholas Collon (conductor)

Admired by Schumann for its 'Grecian light and grace', Mozart's evergreen Symphony No. 40 combines rhythmic verve and dance-like elegance, streaked with stormy drama. For a performance in Vienna, the composer added parts for two clarinets - an instrument at the time still largely absent from the orchestra. Bulgarian-born Dobrinka Tabakova goes one further in her recent Spinning a Yarn, in which the rustic hurdy-gurdy takes a solo role alongside the violin.

Benedict Mason experiments with much more besides in his BBC commission, Meld - at once an enigma and a spectacle, that confounds what we think of as an orchestra, of a concert, and even of music itself. Prepare to be surprised ?!

He begins a three week mini-season of Haydn symphonies with No. 94 in G, the "Surprise".


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03g2r57)
Roddy Doyle

It was a band called The Commitments that first brought Roddy Doyle fame 25 years ago - not a real group of musicians, but a comic novel about a group of Dublin teenagers who get together and form a soul band. The book and its sequels became successful films. Roddy Doyle gave up his job as a teacher and has gone on to write nine more novels set in Dublin, where he grew up and still lives.

One of them, Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha, won the Booker Prize and is a memorable tour de force told entirely in the voice of a ten-year-old Dublin boy. Roddy Doyle has also written for children, for the theatre and the cinema, and now, after 25 years, he's back where he started - he's turned The Commitments into a musical which has just opened in London's West End.

Roddy's music choices range from the richness of Pergolesi and Mozart to the sparse modernism of Steve Reich and Brian Eno, with a touching love song to end the programme.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about music while you work, the pleasures of Dublin dialogue, and the joy of taking up the trumpet in middle age.

First broadcast November 2013.


SUN 13:00 BBC Proms (b04d4jcp)
Proms Chamber Music

PCM 04 - Prokofiev and Schubert

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Prokofiev: Five Melodies

Prokofiev: Sonata in C major for two violins

Schubert: Fantasie in C major, D934

Janine Jansen (violin)
Sakari Oramo (violin)
Itamar Golan (piano)

Prior to her appearances at the Royal Albert Hall later this week and at the Last Night of the Proms, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen performs as a chamber musician alongside pianist Itamar Golan and violinist-turned-conductor Sakari Oramo. Although a familiar face on the podium, Oramo is only now making his Proms debut as a violinist.

Two richly coloured works by Prokofiev contrast with the Fantasie for violin and piano in which Schubert leans towards the sublime, less than a year before his death.

Proms Chamber 4 repeat Sunday 17th August 1302-1400.

Presented by Martin Handley at the Royal Albert Hall

Academy of St Martin in the Fields
Neville Marriner (conductor)

In his First Symphony Beethoven retained the 18th-century grace and wit of Haydn and Mozart, adding his own forward-looking innovations.

Bruch's First Violin Concerto is pure, swooning 19th- century Romanticism, while Walton's Henry V recalls a golden age of 20th-century film music. Sir Neville Marriner, 90 this year, returns to conduct the arrangement of Henry V he himself premiered in 1988. Joshua Bell, the Music Director of The Academy of St Martin in the Fields, leads and directs the orchestra in Beethoven's First Symphony, and directs from the solo violin in the Bruch.

Neptune's Kingdom

The undersea world is evoked in a sequence of words and music. Emily Taaffe and Nicholas Farrell read poetry and prose by Rita Dove, William Shakespeare and Charles Kingsley and the submarine music is provided by Britten, Hovhaness and Holst.

Songs of mackerel shoals and whale tales swell the ocean and the seas pick clean the bones of the drowned. There's beauty, death and the sea-change of new life here in the deep.

Prom 42 (part 1): Lest We Forget

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Penny Gore

Andrew Manze conducts the BBC SSO in music from WW1 including Vaughan Williams 'Pastoral' Third Symphony

Stephan: Music for Orchestra (1912)

Kelly: Elegy for strings, in memoriam Rupert Brooke

Butterworth: Six Songs from 'A Shropshire Lad'

8.15pm Interval

Vaughan Williams: Pastoral Symphony

Allan Clayton (tenor)
Roderick Williams (baritone)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Andrew Manze (conductor)

The BBC Proms continues to mark the centenary of the outbreak of WW1 with a concert of musical imaginations shattered by the Great War.

Rudi Stephan was born in 1887, and by 1912 his Music for Orchestra seemed to promise a great deal in its mysterious and expressionistic textures. In 1915 he was killed by a shot from a Russian soldier.

Frederick Kelly was a talented musician and Olympic rower. His heartfelt Elegy for Strings is a tribute to poet Rupert Brooke with whom he served at Gallipoli. Kelly was killed in the last days of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. George Butterworth, who is best remembered for his settings of E. A. Housman's poems A Shropshire Lad, died from a shot in the head during that same battle. His nostalgic songs are performed this evening by Roderick Williams.

And the Pastoral Fields of Vaughan Williams' Third Symphony are not the rolling hills of England, but those of France, where the composer served in the Royal Army Medical Corps. The rhapsodic symphony, with the wordless voice of tenor Allan Clayton, is performed by Andrew Manze and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and follows their dazzling performance of Symphonies 4, 5 and 6 at the BBC Proms in 2012.

This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 28th August at 2pm.

SUN 21:40 Drama on 3 (b00wlj9b)
The Marriage of Figaro

A rare chance to hear the original play that inspired Mozart's now more famous opera. Written by French writer Beaumarchais, and considered too dangerous to perform in its own time.

Bristling with social and political conflict, behind the comic intrigues of da Ponte's libretto lies a drama that is edgy, political, dealing with class and stroppy servants sensing the smell of Revolution in the air.

The author, Beaumarchais, led a life as colourful as the world of his plays. At the height of the French Revolution, as he had been a royal servant, he was brought before the Revolutionary council. His life was spared when he declared in his defence that he was the creator of Figaro. This character epitomised the underdog striving to be free and was hugely popular with the revolutionaries. Napoleon realised its power when he declared it to be 'the Revolution in action'.

Cast:
Figaro ..... Rupert Degas;
Count ..... Nicholas Rowe;
Suzanne ..... Joannah Tincey;
Countess ..... Clare Wille;
Antonio/Double-Main ..... Sean Barrett;
Marceline ..... Frances Jeater;

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.

MON 18:30 Composer of the Week (b03kp74c)
Iceland

A Symphony of Fire and Ice

Donald Macleod visits the frozen North to explore Icelandic classical music's ancient roots, and learn more about Iceland's greatest 20th-century composer: Jon Leifs.

For more than a millennium, Iceland's composers have drawn upon the sounds of its unique geology: sounds created in a glacial, geothermal landscape like nowhere else on earth. Searing water explodes from fissures; the earth steams spongily underfoot; vast, electric-blue hunks of solid ice crack and collide as they bob down otherwise silent fjords. Yet Iceland's classical music tradition remains barely known. This week, Donald Macleod explores the landscapes and vistas of the world's most northerly island nation - to discover its unique musical culture.

Donald begins his travels around Iceland with an exploration of its earliest art music - with Romantic-era songs by the lonely doctor Sigvaldi Kaldalóns, whose name means 'cold lagoon', and the composer of Iceland's national anthem: Sveinbjörn Sveinbjörnsson, who later made his home in Edinburgh. He meets the Icelandic musicologist Árni Heimir Ingólfsson to discuss the influence of Iceland's ancient folk music on its classical tradition, and introduces the work of "Iceland's Sibelius" - the 20th-century composer, Jon Leifs.

Are We at a Tipping Point? Controlling Infection and Combatting Disease

Increasing resistance to antibiotics is a threat to Britain which could be as dangerous as terrorism.

The first woman to hold the post of Chief Medical Officer for England, she also answers audience questions and talks about strategies for combatting infection and improving the nation's health. Joining her on stage for this discussion is Andrew Sails, Consultant Clinical Scientist and Head of Research and Development and Molecular Diagnostics at Newcastle's Public Health Laboratory, and Professor Hugh Pennnington, Emeritus Professor at the University of Aberdeen.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Anne McElvoy

Recorded at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead and first broadcast in October 2013.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03pd9jr)
Letters to a Young Poet

Michael Symmons Roberts

Taking Rilke's classic correspondence as inspiration, five leading poets write a personal letter to a young poet. Today, to coincide with the announcement of the T S Eliot Prize, shortlisted poet Michael Symmons Roberts writes a letter about poetry that dares the depths.

The original Letters to a Young Poet is a compilation of letters by Rainer Maria Rilke, written between 1902 and 1908 to a 19-year-old officer cadet called Franz Kappus. Kappus was trying to choose between a literary career and entering the Austro-Hungarian army. Rilke's letters touch on poetry and criticism, but they range widely in subject matter from atheism and loneliness, to friendship and sexuality:

"If your everyday life seems to lack material, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to summon up its riches; for there is no lack for him who creates and no poor, trivial place."

In their new letters, five poets imagine a young poet protégé to whom they want to pass on life experience and thoughts about the poetic art.

Our poets are: Michael Symmons Roberts, Vicki Feaver, Michael Longley, Moniza Alvi and Don Paterson.

About Michael Symmons Roberts: Roberts's latest collection Drysalter (Cape 2013) won the 2013 Forward Prize and is on the shortlist for both the T S Eliot Prize and the Costa Poetry Award. He is a leading poet, librettist, novelist, radio dramatist and broadcaster. Previous collections include The Half-Healed, Corpus and Burning Babylon.

First broadcast in January 2014.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04dqf6z)
Live from the Edinburgh Festivals

Jazz on 3 makes its first trip to the Edinburgh Festivals with a live broadcast from the BBC Potterrow site. Presented by Kevin Le Gendre, the show features three local bands as well as a very special festival guest.

Several of the leading lights on the Scottish scene join together in a new band. Playtime Trio features saxophonist Martin Kershaw, drummer Tom Bancroft and guitarist Graeme Stephen, who are also joined in this performance by trombonist Chris Greive. Trio HSK come as one of the most exciting young ensembles to have emerged in the last year, creating off-kilter grooves in an unusual line-up of piano, guitar and drums. The billing is completed by the avant-garde Edimpro collective, here in quintet form, freely improvising in a soundscape of reed instruments and electronics.

Kevin is also joined on stage by a big-name guest - a comedian who regularly performs at the Edinburgh Fringe and is something of a surprise jazz fan.

Presenter: Kevin Le Gendre
Producer: Chris Elcombe.

Prom 34: Strauss, Mozart and Nielsen

Afternoon on 3 with Penny Gore

BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård recorded last week at the BBC Proms with music by Richard Strauss, including his Burleske with pianist Francesco Piemontesi, and Nielsen's Fifth Symphony.

Presented by Christopher Cook at the Royal Albert Hall, London

Richard Strauss: Tod und Verklärung, Op 24
Richard Strauss: Burleske

Mozart: Rondo in A major for piano and orchestra, K386
Nielsen: Symphony No. 5

Francesco Piemontesi (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Søndergård (conductor)

In the first of his two concerts with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård directs Nielsen's Fifth Symphony, shaped by the conflicts and oppositions of the First World War and touching on a bleak nostalgia that is also at the core of Strauss's tone poem Death and Transfiguration - a musical dramatisation of the roaming thoughts of a dying artist. Profundity is balanced by virtuosity in the 'complicated nonsense' of Strauss's youthful Burleske and Mozart's sunny Rondo in A major, both featuring former New Generation Artist Francesco Piemontesi.

First broadcast 11th August 2014.

Prom 44 (part 1): Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Suzy Klein

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra makes its Proms debut under its Chief Conductor Sir Andrew Davis. Passion and despair, love and death, all feature in a programme that roams from the dark fantasy of Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique to the soaring ecstasy of Strauss's Don Juan, while Elgar's Cello Concerto adds more delicate shades of melancholy and yearning.

Richard Strauss: Don Juan

Elgar: Cello Concerto in E minor

7.30pm Interval

7.50pm
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

Truls Mørk (cello)
Melbourne Symphony Orchestra
Sir Andrew Davis (conductor)

This season's showcase of global orchestras continues with the Proms debut of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, under its new Chief Conductor, Sir Andrew Davis. Together they explore the musical extremes of passion, despair, love and death. Perhaps the most powerful artistic expression of unrequited love, Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique is a dark, vivid fantasy inspired by the woman who would eventually become his wife.
Strauss too had just married when he composed the soaring love theme of Don Juan. Elgar's last major work, the Cello Concerto, traces more questioning shades of emotion. There's a beautiful melancholy and tentative yearning to this work, coloured by the First World War: an elegy by any other name.

Prom 44 repeat Sunday 31st August 1600-1755.

TUE 21:10 New Generation Artists (b04dqhkw)
Sean Shibe

Clemency Burton-Hill presents another programme in this summer series showcasing the talents of the BBC's New Generation Artists.

As part of the BBC's commitment to developing and nurturing young talent, BBC Radio 3 launched its New Generation Artists scheme in the autumn of 1999. 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.

Tonight, the spotlight falls on the first ever NGA guitarist, Sean Shibe, widely praised for his particularly sensitive brand of musicianship.

2013 Festival

Why Are Maps Still So Powerful?

Can a map reveal too much? How do they direct our thinking? From ancient atlases to satnav and Google, maps continue to be a key planning tool.

Rana Mitter hosts a discussion recorded at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage, Gateshead between Vanessa Lawrence CB, head of Ordnance Survey and Professor Jerry Broton. They look at who owns the data? What are they doing with it? Who are they selling it to? Who has peer reviewed the maps?

Professor Jerry Brotton, Professor of Renaissance Studies in the Department of English, Queen Mary, University of London is the author of A History of the World in Twelve Maps and presenter of the BBC Four TV series Maps: Power, Plunder and Possession.

Vanessa Lawrence is advisor to the British government on mapping, surveying and geographic information. She is honorary vice-president of the Geographical Association and visiting Professor at the University of Southampton and Kingston University.

He selected sounds he liked, and wrote instrumental music to blend with, and develop from, the recorded sounds.

Harrold said: "It's a challenging project; the issues associated with marrying acoustic and electroacoustic elements into one piece requires a lot of thought."

It is being performed as part of the Proms Inspire Winners Concert, by members of the Aurora Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Collon.

WED 18:30 Composer of the Week (b03kp837)
Iceland

From the Ancients to Bjork

Donald Macleod visits the site of the world's oldest parliament - and explores the remarkable, genre-crossing voice of the world's most celebrated Icelandic musician: Bjork.

For more than a millennium, Iceland's composers have drawn upon the sounds of its unique geology: sounds created in a glacial, geothermal landscape like nowhere else on earth. Searing water explodes from fissures; the earth steams spongily underfoot; vast, electric-blue hunks of solid ice crack and collide as they bob down otherwise silent fjords. Yet Iceland's classical music tradition remains barely known. This week, Donald Macleod explores the landscapes and vistas of the world's most northerly island nation - to discover its unique musical culture.

The fleeting flute dreams of Atli Heimir Sveinsson's "21 Sounding Minutes" thread together today's story of Iceland's past both ancient and modern. At Thingvellir, historic site of the world's oldest continuous democratic parliament, Donald Macleod introduces a cantata by Jon Leifs that looks back at his hardy Scandinavian forebears, before bringing us into the 20th century with a charming piano concerto by Iceland's leading female composer Jorunn Vidar. He ends by exploring the remarkable, genre-crossing career - and voice - of unquestionably Iceland's most famous musical export: Bjork.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b03pdg58)
Letters to a Young Poet

Vicki Feaver

Taking Rilke's classic correspondence as inspiration, five leading poets write a personal letter to a young protégé. Today, to coincide with the announcement of the T S Eliot Prize, one of the prize's judges, Vicki Feaver, writes a letter to a young woman poet.

The original Letters to a Young Poet is a compilation of letters by Rainer Maria Rilke, written between 1902 and 1908 to a 19-year-old officer cadet called Franz Kappus. Kappus was trying to choose between a literary career and entering the Austro-Hungarian army. Rilke's letters touch on poetry and criticism, but they range widely in subject matter from atheism and loneliness, to friendship and sexuality:

"If your everyday life seems to lack material, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to summon up its riches; for there is no lack for him who creates and no poor, trivial place."

In their new letters, five poets imagine a young poet protégé to whom they want to pass on life experience and thoughts about the poetic art.

Our poets are: Michael Symmons Roberts, Vicki Feaver, Michael Longley, Moniza Alvi and Don Paterson.

About Vicki Feaver: Vicki Feaver has published three collections of poetry, Close Relatives (Secker 1981), The Handless Maiden (Cape 1994) and The Book of Blood (Cape 2006), both short-listed for the Forward Prize Best Collection, with The Book of Blood also shortlisted for the 2006 Costa (formerly Whitbread) Poetry Book Award. Her poem 'Judith' won the Forward Prize for the Best Single Poem. She lives in Scotland.

Prom 35: Sibelius, Walton, Peter Maxwell Davies

Afternoon on 3 with Penny Gore
The BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Thomas Søndergård live at the BBC Proms with music by Sibelius, Peter Maxwell Davies and James Ehnes plays the Walton Violin Concerto.

Presented by Christopher Cook at the Royal Albert Hall, London

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies: Caroline Mathilde - suite from Act 2
Walton: Violin Concerto

Sibelius: The Swan of Tuonela

Mary Bevan (soprano)
Kitty Whately (mezzo-soprano) (Proms debut artist & New Generation Artist)
James Ehnes (violin)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Søndergård (conductor)

Commissioned by Jascha Heifetz, Walton's concerto extended the possibilities of what could be achieved on the violin, while at the same time maintaining a striking intimacy and emotional directness. Thomas Søndergård and BBC NOW open with a suite from Sir Peter Maxwell Davies's ballet Caroline Mathilde, in which the English princess is sent to an unhappy marriage in Denmark. Caroline Mathilde was written for The Danish Royal Ballet and premiered in 1991 in Copenhagen, with tonight's conductor playing percussion at the back of the orchestra in the pit. Sibelius had a painting of a flight of swans hung on the wall of his study, and these birds inspired the two great orchestral canvases in this concert - in the majestic 'swan theme' which appears at the culmination of his Fifth symphony, and in a more serene and mystical way in the Swan of Tuonela.

THU 18:30 Composer of the Week (b03kp839)
Iceland

Sagas and Requiems

Donald Macleod explores the influence of Iceland's sagas on its music, before exploring the contemporary music scene with Valgeir Sigurðsson, a leading producer and composer.

For more than a millennium, Iceland's composers have drawn upon the sounds of its unique geology: sounds created in a glacial, geothermal landscape like nowhere else on earth. Searing water explodes from fissures; the earth steams spongily underfoot; vast, electric-blue hunks of solid ice crack and collide as they bob down otherwise silent fjords. Yet Iceland's classical music tradition remains barely known. This week, Donald Macleod explores the landscapes and vistas of the world's most northerly island nation - to discover its unique musical culture.

Having survived the traumas of the Second World War, the life of Iceland's leading composer, Jon Leifs was to fall apart in 1947 after his daughter Líf drowned in the sea. Donald Macleod explores the legacy of this tragedy on his music with the musicologist Arni Heimir Ingolfsson before meeting one of Icelandic contemporary music's most important figures: the record producer and composer Valgeir Sigurdsson, whose music seems to transcend genre classifications such 'popular', 'classical', 'ambient' and 'electronica'.

Prom 47: Britten - War Requiem

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Suzy Klein

A Proms performance of Britten's great musical protest at 'the pity of War'.

Britten: War Requiem

Susan Gritton (soprano)
Toby Spence (tenor)
Hanno Müller-Brachmann (baritone)
BBC Proms Youth Choir
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
Andris Nelsons (conductor)

Marking the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1, a Proms performance of the greatest musical piece of anti-war polemic ever composed. Britten's magisterial oratorio was first heard in 1962, performed in a Coventry Cathedral newly-opened after its medieval predecessor had been destroyed by the bombs of WW2. Subtly interleaving the Latin text of the Requiem Mass with the war poems of Wilfred Owen, the 'War Requiem' stands as both one of Britten's most passionate and heartfelt works and a devastating portrayal of what Owen called 'the pity of War'.

Prom 47 repeat Tuesday 2nd September 1400-1630.

Fred D'Aguiar's poems include Boy Soldier in his collection The Rose of Toulouse and his most recent novel is called Children of Paradise

THU 22:45 The Essay (b03pdg5b)
Letters to a Young Poet

Michael Longley

Taking Rilke's classic correspondence as inspiration, five leading poets write a personal letter to a young poet. Today, eminent Belfast poet, Michael Longley.

The original Letters to a Young Poet is a compilation of letters by Rainer Maria Rilke, written between 1902 and 1908 to a 19-year-old officer cadet called Franz Kappus. Kappus was trying to choose between a literary career and entering the Austro-Hungarian army. Rilke's letters touch on poetry and criticism, but they range widely in subject matter from atheism and loneliness, to friendship and sexuality:

"If your everyday life seems to lack material, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to summon up its riches; for there is no lack for him who creates and no poor, trivial place."

In their new letters, five poets imagine a young poet protégé to whom they want to pass on life experience and thoughts about the poetic art.

Our poets are: Michael Symmons Roberts, Vicki Feaver, Michael Longley, Moniza Alvi and Don Paterson.

About Michael Longley: Michael Longley was born in Belfast in 1939. His Collected Poems was published in 2006 and in 2007, he was appointed Professor of Poetry for Ireland. His most recent poetry collections are Gorse Fires (2009) and A Hundred Doors (2011), shortlisted for the 2011 Forward Poetry Prize (Best Poetry Collection of the Year).

First broadcast in January 2014.

Iceland

Old Poetry, New Sounds

Donald Macleod explores works by two key contemporary figures, Haflidi Halgrimsson and Daniel Bjarnason - ending with an extraordinary musical depiction of a volcanic eruption by Jon Leifs.

For more than a millennium, Iceland's composers have drawn upon the sounds of its unique geology: sounds created in a glacial, geothermal landscape like nowhere else on earth. Searing water explodes from fissures; the earth steams spongily underfoot; vast, electric-blue hunks of solid ice crack and collide as they bob down otherwise silent fjords. Yet Iceland's classical music tradition remains barely known. This week, Donald Macleod explores the landscapes and vistas of the world's most northerly island nation - to discover its unique musical culture.

Donald Macleod ends his visit to Iceland with two utterly different works by Jon Leifs - his quiet, valedictory Fine II for strings and vibraphone, and the colossal orchestral poem "Hekla" - possibly the loudest piece of classical music ever written. He also introduces works by two key contemporary Icelandic voices: Haflidi Halgrimsson and Daníel Bjarnason, and talks to the latter about how his music bridges the worlds of rock, classical and electronic music.

Virtuoso American pianist Jonathan Biss makes his second appearance this season with Schumann's Piano Concerto, and the concert closes with another central piece in the Classical repertoire: Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough teaches at Durham University and will be presenting a documentary for BBC Radio 3 about The Supernatural North
Joanna Kavenna's books include Come to the Edge and The Ice Museum: In Search of The Lost Land of Thule

Iceland Symphony Orchestra
Ilan Volkov (conductor)

The Iceland Symphony Orchestra make their BBC Proms debut led by Music Director, the Israeli conductor Ilan Volkov. Together they bring works from two major Icelandic composers, both inspired by the power and drama of their native country's geology. There's a slow-growing, primal force to Leifs's Geysir that balances the shifting tectonics of Tómasson's Magma. Virtuoso American pianist Jonathan Biss makes his second appearance this season with Schumann's Piano Concerto, and the concert closes with another central piece in the Classical repertoire: Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Tom Service presents live.

Prom 48 repeat Thursday 4th September 1400-1630.
