In a special edition of Music Matters marking the 150th anniversary of the birth of Richard Strauss, Tom Service travels to Garmish-Partenkirchen, near Munich, where Strauss made his home for more than forty years, and where he wrote many of his most important works, including Elektra.
As a festival celebrating Strauss begins, Tom is shown around Villa Strauss, the composer's former home, by Strauss' grandson, Christian. He also speaks to musicians including the great mezzo-soprano Brigitte Fassbaender about what the composer means to them, Dr Christian Wolf from the Richard Strauss Institute considers how Strauss is viewed more than 60 years after his death, and Ian Bostridge and Julius Drake talk us through the art of the Strauss song.

Celebrating his 80th birthday this year and the subject of one of this season's Proms Plus Composer Portraits, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies is one of the greats of contemporary British music.

This programme chosen by the composer himself explores his wide-ranging sound-worlds, from the sleek and glittering chamber textures of A Mirror of Whitening Light (completed in 1977, shortly after his move to Orkney) to the confrontational music drama of Revelation and Fall.

London Sinfonietta principal cellist Tim Gill is the soloist in the writhing plainchant melodies of Linguae ignis, and Sian Edwards returns to conduct, following her Proms Saturday Matinee appearance last year.

2014

Prom 58: Strauss - Salome

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Donald Macleod

In Richard Strauss's 150th-anniversary year the Proms presents a double bill of his two great tragedies. On consecutive nights his heroines Salome and Elektra meet their bloody ends in the Royal Albert Hall. Tonight, Donald Runnicles brings his Deutsche Oper Berlin forces to the Proms for Salome. Star soprano Nina Stemme leads the cast as the troubled princess.

2nd Jew/A Slave: Gideon Poppe (Tenor)

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Donald Runnicles (Conductor)

After seeing Oscar Wilde's play Salomé, Richard Strauss was overcome with the feeling that it "cried out for music."

Wilde wrote his drama on "the sinfulness of innocence" in French and Strauss used a German translation by Hedwig Lachmann as his libretto. First performed in Dresden in December 1905, Salome gave Richard Strauss his first international opera success.

The story is one that takes passion to its extreme and beyond. Salome is the sultry princess of ancient Judea. Her stepfather, Herod, has promised Salome half of his kingdom in exchange for a sensual dance. In return, she asks that he gives her the head of John the Baptist on a silver platter...

In the title role, for which Strauss famously wished for a 16-year-old princess with the voice of an Isolde, is one of the world's leading dramatic sopranos, Nina Stemme.


SAT 21:45 Hear and Now (b04fy98b)
Elliott Carter in Glasgow

Tom Service presents performances from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's two-concert celebration of the American composer Elliott Carter, staged at City Halls in Glasgow in May this year and featuring several Scottish premieres. Conductors Ryan Wigglesworth and Diego Masson direct a wide range of Carter's orchestral music, with a particular focus on his works for piano and orchestra - played by Nicolas Hodges, who worked closely with Carter in the later years of his long life. Hodges also plays solo and chamber pieces by Carter.

And in this week's episode in the Hear and Now Composers' Rooms series, Sara Mohr-Pietsch visits the new Master of the Queen's Music, Judith Weir.

Mark Miodownik

From concrete to chocolate and teacups to tennis racquets, it's the everyday stuff of life that fascinates Mark Miodownik. He's Professor of Materials and Society at University College London where he is also Director of the Institute of Making, a research hub for scientists, designers, engineers, artists, architects - and musicians. A passionate communicator about the vital role of science in society, he's written a bestselling book Stuff Matters; he's the scientist in residence on Dara O'Briain's Science Club on BBC2; and he's listed by The Times as one of the 100 most influential scientists in the UK.

Mark is fascinated by how materials influence the way music sounds, and talks to Michael Berkeley about brass bands, tuning forks and how love can bloom over playing the saw. His musical choices include Bach, film music by Morricone, Scott Joplin and a little known piece for brass band by Holst.

Alongside it is a rarely heard curiosity - Mahler's contemplative Piano Quartet movement, the tantalising torso of a work never completed.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b04fybmn)
Rinaldo Alessandrini and Concerto Italiano

Lucie Skeaping profiles Rinaldo Alessandrini - keyboard player and director of Concerto Italiano - with music recorded at their recent Edinburgh International Festival concert.

Alessandrini founded Concerto Italiano in 1984 with a debut performance in Rome with Cavalli's opera "La Callisto". Now considered one of Europe's finest Baroque ensembles, Concerto Italiano is cherished for its vivid, urgent yet subtle performances that display a rare expressive flexibility. The ensemble celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, and over the last three decades it has become renowned for its interpretations of Monteverdi, Vivaldi and Alessandro Scarlatti, amongst others.

Rinaldo Alessandrini brings a rich programme of exquisite Italian music to Greyfriars Kirk as part of the Edinburgh International Festival, contrasting instrumental pieces by Marini, Uccellini, Merula and Castello with dazzling madrigals by Monteverdi, including the highly moving "Lettera amorosa" and the hugely emotional miniature opera "Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda", in which a Christian knight unknowingly defeats his beloved in battle.

Concerto Italiano is joined for their Edinburgh concert by the soprano Anna Simboli and tenors Gianluca Ferrarini and Luca Dordolo.

Prom 44: Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique

The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis recorded earlier this month at the BBC Proms.

Presented by Suzy Klein at the Royal Albert Hall, London

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

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.

First broadcast 19th August 2014.


SUN 17:55 Words and Music (b04fyd89)
Recipes

A celebration of all things culinary and mixological, from an ancient recipe for chocolate to James Bond's iconic 'Vesper' Martini.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Richard Strauss's Elektra. Semyon Bychkov conducts a starry international cast, the BBC SO & BBC Singers in this powerful retelling of the Greek revenge myth.

Presented by Andrew McGregor.

Richard Strauss: Elektra

Elektra: Christine Goerke (Soprano)

Confidante: BBC Singers Stepout 1 (Soprano)
Trainbearer: BBC Singers Stepout 2 (Soprano)
Old Servant: BBC Singers Stepout 3 (Bass)

BBC Singers
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Semyon Bychkov (Conductor)

With a libretto by Hofmannsthal which focusses on Elektra's psychological state, Strauss's brutal and ferociously compelling interpretation of the ancient Greek orginal, premiered in 1909, is highly modernist and expressionist. It's brought to life by Semyon Bychkov, a long-time champion of his music. The cast is led by American soprano Christine Goerke, who recently dazzled in the title-role at the Royal Opera House, with Danish baritone Johan Reuter as her beloved brother Orestes.

In Greek mythology, Electra was the daughter of King Agamemnon and Queen Clytemnestra. She and her brother Orestes plotted revenge against their mother Clytemnestra and stepfather Aegisthus for the murder of their father, Agamemnon.


SUN 21:40 Drama on 3 (b04fyd8h)
August 1914

A new adaptation for radio of Nobel Prize-winner Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's epic story of the first battle of the Eastern Front in 1914 - which was a disaster for Russia. Solzhenitsyn's book was published in the West one year after he won the prize - with sections about Lenin omitted. It was only after his expulsion from the USSR that the complete book was available. This new production is narrated by Fiona Shaw.

In August 1914, Colonel Vorotyntsev advances into East Prussia in search of the elusive front line. As he encounters the truth about the German war-machine his military ideals rapidly tarnish and he must decide whether to volunteer his men for certain death or retreat. At the outbreak of the First World War, the Russian advance met with catastrophic results. Bungled orders, poor and insufficient supplies, out-dated equipment and tactics, and deliberate misinformation resulted in chaos and the near-annihiliation of the army at the hands of the Germans. Three years later the tsarist regime fell as Lenin led the October Revolution.

Dramatised by Robin Brooks from the translation by H.T.Willett

Sound Nigel Lewis & Catherine Robinson

BBC Cymru Wales production.

Rob's guest this week is the satirist, writer, television director and radio producer, Armando Iannucci. Described by The Daily Telegraph as "the hardman of political satire" and by The Observer as one of the 50 Funniest Acts in British Comedy, he rose quickly through the BBC with On the Hour and the television series, The Day Today. One of his and Steve Coogan's most famous creations from that series, Alan Partridge, went on to feature in a number of Armando's television and radio programmes including Knowing Me, Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge.

As well as writing and producing, he has also fronted the satirical Armistice review shows and The Armando Iannucci Shows, for Channel 4. Moving back to the BBC in 2005, he created the political sitcom The Thick of It, the spoof documentary Time Trumpet and the radio series, Charm Offensive. He has written an operetta libretto, Skin Deep, for Opera North, and his latest television project is the HBO political satire, Veep. Armando received an OBE in 2012 for services to broadcasting.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04fyh0q)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

Czech Seeds in British Soil

Between 1884 and 1896, Dvorák visited Britain nine times - with enormous benefit both to himself and to musical life on these shores. The platforms offered by London's conductors and concert venues helped to launch him as a composer of international stature. Before his first visit to London, he was known only in the German-speaking world and his native Bohemia. By his fifth visit, his fame was on a par with that of his friend and untiring advocate Brahms.

Donald Macleod explores the origins of Dvorák's relationship with the British Isles, from his earliest musical calling-card, the Slavonic Dances opus 46, first presented to British audiences at Crystal Palace in February 1879, to the triumphant reception accorded him five years later when he conducted his Stabat Mater at the Royal Albert Hall. A key element along the way, before he had even set foot here, was his enthusiastic endorsement by musical luminaries such as the violinist Joachim, who presented Dvorák's String Sextet in London in 1880, and the conductor Hans Richter, who championed a string of Dvorák's works, beginning with the 3rd Slavonic Rhapsody.


MON 13:00 BBC Proms (b04fyh0s)
Proms Chamber Music

PCM 07 - Benjamin Grosvenor

Benjamin Grosvenor at the BBC Proms in music by Chopin, Judith Weir and Ravel

From the Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Chopin: Ballade no. 1 in G minor, Op. 23
Mompou: Paisajes
Ravel: Valses nobles et sentimentales
Judith Weir: Day Break Shadows Flee [BBC Commission. World Premiere]
Gounod arr. Liszt: Waltz from 'Faust'

Benjamin Grosvenor (piano)

He may only just have turned 22, but pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is already a Proms regular. The precocious British pianist returns for his first Proms Chamber Music concert, performing a mixed programme with a dance theme pulsing through it.

He explores the waltz from the contrasting perspectives of Ravel and Liszt, exchanging bladed impressionism for dizzying virtuosity, while Mompou's Paisajes transports us to Barcelona, offering an evocative vision of a city from which the composer had been distanced for many years.

The contrast of nocturnal scurrying and warm radiance suggested the title for Judith Weir's new commission, written specially for Grosvenor.

It's followed by the UK premiere of two compositions by Middle-Eastern composers: Israeli, Ayal Adler and Syrian-born Kareem Roustom. And then it's time for some more Iberian flavours with Ravel's music: his Rapsodie espagnole and Alborada del gracioso, followed by an orchestral version of his Pavane pour une infante défunte and finishing with the mesmerising rhythms of his Bolero.

Prom 60

Prom 60 (part 1): Roman Holiday

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra & Charles Dutoit live at the BBC Proms with a celebration of Italy and especially the city of Rome. Music by Berlioz, Walton and Respighi.

Berlioz: Overture 'Le carnaval romain'

Walton: Sinfonia concertante (original version)

8:05pm Interval

8:25pm
Respighi: Roman Festivals; Fountains of Rome; Pines of Rome

Danny Driver (piano),
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra,
Charles Dutoit (conductor).

Italian sunshine floods the Royal Albert Hall Tonight's Prom - with a Swiss conductor, a British orchestra, and music by an Italian, an Englishman and (first) a Frenchman. Hector Berlioz's opera Benvenuto Cellini - featuring the riotous Roman Carnival from which he took the Overture we'll hear tonight - was inspired by Berlioz's experiences during eighteen months in Italy after winning the French Prix de Rome in 1830. Ottorino Respighi settled in Rome for most of his adult life, and celebrated his adopted city in a triptych of increasingly flamboyant orchestral showpieces - depicting not just fountains, pines and festivals, but the children of Rome at play, the mysterious catacombs and the ancient Roman legions on the march. Charles Dutoit offers a rare chance to hear all three works in sequence. William Walton - one of the featured composers in the 2014 BBC Proms - dedicated the three movements of his original Sinfonia concertante to the three Sitwell siblings, Osbert, Edith and Sacheverell, who took him under their wing and (crucially) introduced him to Italy. "I've never forgotten it," Walton said of the experience of emerging from a tunnel under the Alps into the Italian sunlight: "a new world".


MON 20:05 BBC Proms (b04g1510)

Respighi's Roman Triptych

MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (b03k0lg0)
A Profile of Ken Adam: The Spectre of Modernism

Presented by Matthew Sweet.

If you think of a megalomaniac villain's lair, it's almost certain your imagination will be fuelled by the creations of Sir Ken Adam.

Matthew Sweet meets the game-changing film designer. Most famous for designing Bond films and Dr. Strangelove, the ambition of Ken Adam's vision is unrivalled. He created Dr No's underwater hideout, Goldfinger's Rumpus Room and Blofeld's volcano lair, and a Cabinet War Room for Dr Strangelove so persuasive and convincing that - the apocryphal story goes - when Ronald Reagan entered the White House he asked to see it.

Matthew hears Ken Adam's story from the man himself. It's an extraordinary one: as a boy in Berlin he witnessed the smoking ruins of the Reichstag on his way to school; as a young man he was one of only two Germans to fly a fighter jet for the RAF over his own homeland. And Matthew explores how much Ken Adam - born Klaus Hugo Adam 92 years ago - shaped our sense of what a glamorous urban environment should look like.

Matthew Sweet explores how Ken Adam's playful take on modernism has influenced not just film but also the real world, feeding the imagination of a generation of architects and changing our built environment.

Matthew hears from modernist architect Norman Foster, Director of the National Theatre Nicholas Hytner (who worked with Ken on The Madness of King George), longtime friend the cultural historian Christopher Frayling, Julia Peyton Jones, Co-Director of the Serpentine Gallery, and design writer Jonathan Glancey.

Producer: Allegra McIlroy.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03vd61m)
Cornerstones

Limestone

Sue Clifford, co-founder of the arts and environment organisation Common Ground, reflects on what England's limestone landscapes mean to her, the way water has carved out vast underground cave systems.

This is the first of four essays in which writers reflect on the way their bedrock geology has shaped their favourite landscapes. Limestone, as Sue Clifford says, is not only the stone of choice for many of Britain's architectural landmarks, but in the wild it also supports a wealth of flowers, creating its own micro-climates in the klints and grykes that characterise karst scenery. Limestone, she acknowledges, rejoices in its own specific vocabulary.

In the other essays, the walker and geologist Ronald Turnbull addresses sandstone, the sculptor Peter Randall-Page describes what it's like working with Dartmoor's obdurate granite boulders, and the Welsh poet Gillian Clarke writes about Snowdonia's slate.

Producer: Mark Smalley.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04g153j)
Led Bib

Prog-jazz outfit Led Bib celebrate their tenth anniversary, in concert at The Vortex, London.

Once fittingly described by the Wire Magazine as sounding "like a hot chainsaw through butter", drummer Mark Holub and his searing quintet Led Bib have marked a decade of music-making with tireless energy and an irreverence for genre boundaries. Amassing five albums and a Mercury Prize nomination along the way, the group returned to the location of their debut album release in Dalston for a three-day residency to celebrate the occasion. Performing music from their latest record "The People in Your Neighbourhood", Holub is joined by the twin altos of Pete Grogan and Chris Williams who take the lead in anthemic melodies and urgent improvisations, whilst powerhouse bassist Liran Donin and keys player Toby McLaren propel the band through heavy riffing and angular, psychedelic excursions.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Miranda Hinkley.

Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

A Bohemian in Blighty

Between 1884 and 1896, Dvorák visited Britain nine times - with enormous benefit both to himself and to musical life on these shores. The platforms offered by London's conductors and concert venues helped to launch him as a composer of international stature. Before his first visit to London, he was known only in the German-speaking world and his native Bohemia. By his fifth visit, his fame was on a par with that of his friend and untiring advocate Brahms.

Donald Macleod looks at the background to the commissioning of Dvorák's 7th Symphony by the Royal Philharmonic Society. That same organization had commissioned Beethoven's 9th Symphony some 67 years earlier, and is still going strong today. The RPS had been instrumental in organising Dvorák's first visit to Britain. Other invitations quickly followed, including one to conduct his 6th Symphony and Stabat Mater at the Worcester Three Choirs Festival, where an awestruck young Edward Elgar sat among the ranks of the violins.

Prom 47: Britten - War Requiem

Afternoon on 3 with Penny Gore

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons recorded last month at the BBC Proms in Benjamin Britten's great musical protest at 'the pity of War' - his heartfelt and passionate War Requiem.

Presented by Suzy Klein at the Royal Albert Hall, London

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 both as one of Britten's most passionate and heartfelt works and a devastating portrayal of what Owen called 'the pity of War'.

First broadcast 21st August 2014.

Continuing the World Orchestras strand this year, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra makes its Proms debut under Music Director Lan Shui, bringing with it the European premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning Chinese composer Zhou Long's Piano Concerto - a fusion of Western forms and Eastern memories.

The concert opens with the overture to Glinka's fairy-tale opera Ruslan and Lyudmila, which weaves three melodies together with intricate skill. We end with Rachmaninov's Second Symphony, in which the composer overcame his early artistic doubts to produce an expansive work with a brilliant, vivacious scherzo and one of his very loveliest slow movements.

2013 Festival

Are Audiences Killing Culture?

In a bid to reach new audiences, theatre is increasingly moving off the stage and the visual arts are coming out of the gallery, but is this a welcome trend? Matthew Sweet chairs the Free Thinking panel: BALTIC Curator Godfrey Worsdale, critic Sarah Kent, artist Wolfgang Weileder and Helen Marriage, director of Artichoke, the arts company responsible for a puppet elephant parading through London and Durham's Lumiere street light festival.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b03vd7vj)
Cornerstones

Sandstone

The walker, writer and geologist Ronald Turnbull reflects on how some of his favourite landscapes across the UK are softly shaped by sandstone. The ease of carving it, he says, accounts for its attractions to mankind across time.

This is the second of four essays in which writers reflect on the way their bedrock geology has shaped their favourite landscapes. The sandstone that characterises his home in Dumfries, Ronald Turnbull says, is similar to the sandstone of North America, Siberia and elsewhere, because it was all created as part of the same hot, desert landmass millions of years ago.

In the other essays, Sue Clifford, co-founder of Common Ground reflects on limestone landscapes, the sculptor Peter Randall-Page describes what it's like working with Dartmoor's obdurate granite boulders, and the Welsh poet Gillian Clarke evokes the human stories shaped by Snowdonia's slate.

Producer: Mark Smalley.

One of his and Steve Coogan's most famous creations from that series, Alan Partridge, went on to feature in a number of Armando's television and radio programmes including Knowing Me, Knowing You and I'm Alan Partridge.

As well as writing and producing, he has also fronted the satirical Armistice review shows and The Armando Iannucci Shows, for Channel 4. Moving back to the BBC in 2005, he created the political sitcom The Thick of It, the spoof documentary Time Trumpet and the radio series, Charm Offensive. He has written an operetta libretto, Skin Deep, for Opera North, and his latest television project is the HBO political satire, Veep. Armando received an OBE in 2012 for services to broadcasting.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04g13t0)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

You See, I Became Quite the Englishman

Between 1884 and 1896, Dvorák visited Britain nine times - with enormous benefit both to himself and to musical life on these shores. The platforms offered by London's conductors and concert venues helped to launch him as a composer of international stature. Before his first visit to London, he was known only in the German-speaking world and his native Bohemia. By his fifth visit, his fame was on a par with that of his friend and untiring advocate Brahms.

Donald Macleod considers Dvorák's fourth and fifth British sojourns, in which he ventured as far afield as Birmingham and Leeds. Birmingham had commissioned from him a secular cantata for their 1885 Festival. This turned out to be The Spectre's Bride, a Gothic tale of ghoulish horror about an orphaned girl whose dead lover rises from the grave to claim her though, eventually, all's well that ends well: she clings to her faith "and the evil spirit is repulsed." The Leeds Festival commission was for a new choral work, preferably on a biblical subject; but Dvorák opted instead for St Ludmila, a story from ancient Bohemian history about the conversion of the Czech people from paganism to Christianity. The Spectre's Bride turned out to be the biggest triumph of Dvorák's career to date; the success of St Ludmila, whose creation had caused the composer a huge amount of stress and worry, was more equivocal. Neither work is frequently performed today.

Sir Roger Norrington (Conductor)

Following his St John Passion earlier in the season, Roger Norrington returns tonight as Honorary Conductor of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra. Much-loved symphonies by Beethoven and Dvorak bookend a programme of big musical emotions that has at its core the wistful romance 'of the Romeo Alone section of Berlioz's sprawling choral symphony.

Beethoven's 'little symphony in F' brings joy and wit to the mix, belying the composer's troubled personal life with its sunny good humour. By contrast, biography is woven tightly into the melodies and rhythms of Dvorak's final symphony - the elegiac testimony to his love of his Bohemian homeland and his new-found fascination for the stories and traditions 'of America.

Leonard Elschenbroich

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.

Just one work in tonight's programme: Brahms's heroic second Cello Sonata, performed by NGA cellist Leonard Elschenbroich.

Brahms Sonata in F, Op 99
Leonard Elschenbroich (cello), Alexei Grynyuk (piano)

ENDS.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b03vd7w1)
Cornerstones

Granite

For 25 years the sculptor Peter Randall-Page has worked Dartmoor's obdurate and unforgiving granite boulders. He reflects on what it's like trying to wrestle with it: "granite is stuff personified, quintessentially dumb matter, it is what the earth is made of, congealed magma, planetary and galactic, inert and unintelligible."

Peter's is the third of four essays in which writers and artists reflect on the way their bedrock geology - their cornerstones - have shaped their favourite landscapes. Peter Randall-Page realises that he's worked his way back through geological time to work with granite: "beginning with the relatively young sedimentary limestone of Bath, through the metamorphic marble of Carrara to the most ancient material of granite."

In the other essays, Sue Clifford, co-founder of Common Ground reflects on her favourite limestone landscapes, the walker and geologist Ronald Turnbull addresses sandstone and the Welsh poet Gillian Clarke addresses the human dimension of mining Snowdonia's slate.

Producer: Mark Smalley.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04g13t2)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

Doctor Dvorak

Between 1884 and 1896, Dvorák visited Britain nine times - with enormous benefit both to himself and to musical life on these shores. The platforms offered by London's conductors and concert venues helped to launch him as a composer of international stature. Before his first visit to London, he was known only in the German-speaking world and his native Bohemia. By his fifth visit, his fame was on a par with that of his friend and untiring advocate Brahms.

Donald Macleod explores the origins of Dvorák's 8th Symphony, commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society, and his Requiem, written for the Birmingham Festival of 1891. The RPS had been trying to persuade Dvorák to compose something new for them for several years but he remained busy with other projects until the end of 1889. Eventually, he wrote to say that he had started sketching "something new for your concerts". His new symphony was a huge success at its British première the following April. By now, Dvorák was practically a member of the British musical establishment so it was a logical step for Cambridge University to award him an honorary doctorate. He attended the ceremony in June 1891 - an all-Latin affair that evidently made him extremely uncomfortable. In the wake of the rapturous reception given to The Spectre's Bride at the Birmingham Festival of 1885, Dvorák was commissioned to write a new oratorio. At first it was suggested to him that he should set The Dream of Gerontius, a poem by Cardinal Newman, but Dvorák found the text alien and opted instead for a setting of the Requiem mass, which received its world première in Birmingham in October 1891, under the baton of the composer.

Jonathan Biss (piano)
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.

First broadcast 22nd August 2014.

Prom 63 (part 1): Mahler and John Adams

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Ian Skelly

Marin Alsop returns to the BBC Proms with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Music by John Adams - the UK premiere of his Saxophone Concerto - and Mahler, his colourful First Symphony.

John Adams: Short Ride in a Fast Machine
John Adams: Saxophone Concerto (UK Premiere)

8:16pm Interval

Mahler: Symphony No. 1 in D major

Timothy McAllister (Alto Saxophone)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Marin Alsop (Conductor)

Marin Alsop makes a welcome return following her triumph at last year's Last Night, to conduct the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Mahler's First Symphony. Originally designated a 'symphonic poem', the work retains all the programmatic colour this suggests. A young hero travels through life, marvelling at nature and growing to maturity, but encountering the sorrows and conflicts of Fate at every turn.

Mahler's long-limbed lyricism meets its match in the muscular drive of John Adams's Saxophone Concerto, written for virtuoso soloist Timothy McAllister, and his iconic orchestral miniature Short Ride in a Fast Machine, which pulses with anarchic life.

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b03ln9mg)
Ideas of Germany

Germany is Europe's pre-eminent and unrivalled power, its largest economy and the Continent's most potent political force. But culturally things are more confused.

More than twenty years after German unity in 1990, understanding what it is to be German today is far harder to pin down than the facts of its economic success and predominance in the European Union. So what are the reasons for this paradox? And how should we in Britain, profoundly affected by Germany and the country's ideas of itself, understand the nation today?

Anne McElvoy closely observed the old communist East Germany at first hand in the 1980s when she studied at East Berlin's Humboldt University, with its Stasi teaching corps and 7.00am lectures in Marxist-Leninism. In the 1990s, when she covered Germany as a correspondent, she wrote about the evolution of the new Germany formed from two very different antecedent countries.

Now, in this "Sunday Feature", Anne McElvoy re-visits Berlin to gauge what ideas of Germany are emerging. She talks to eminent writers, artists and figures in the performing arts as well as those who observe the broader cultural and political scene to discover how they see their homeland's past, present and future.

Among those taking part: the German Book Prize winner Julia Franck, the grand-daughter of a leading East German communist artist - and the daughter of a dissident; eminent poet Elke Schmitter; political and social thinker Ulrike Guerot; British dramatist and director Simon Stephens; best-selling thriller writer Ferdinand von Schirach whose grandfather headed the Hitler Youth; and Isabella von Bülow of the dynasty which includes on one side the composer and conductor Hans and on the other the field marshal Friedrich Wilhelm.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b03vd7w3)
Cornerstones

Slate

"Slate is our stone, from the quarries of Snowdonia", writes the Welsh poet Gillian Clarke in her Cornerstones essay, "just as the coal in the grate is ours, from the south Wales coalfield. We tread on slate every day." For her slate was inescapabable, ubiquitous: "In city, town, village and upland farm, we sleep under Welsh slate. Rain sings on it. It roofed every house I have ever lived in."

Gillian's is the fourth and last of these essays in which writers and artists reflect on the way their bedrock geology - their cornerstones - have shaped their favourite landscapes. "To this day" she says, "the sight of slate-tips in rain never fails to fill me with awe, such an unbearable weight of angles and shards, of greys, purples, silvers, broken pieces of sky, so many deaths, so much lost life. So much geological and human history."

In the other essays, Sue Clifford, co-founder of Common Ground reflects on her favourite limestone landscapes, the walker and geologist Ronald Turnbull addresses sandstone, and the sculptor Peter Randall-Page tells us what it's like working with something as unforgiving as Dartmoor's obdurate granite boulders.

Producer: Mark Smalley.

Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904)

Dvorak's Last Visit

Between 1884 and 1896, Dvorák visited Britain nine times - with enormous benefit both to himself and to musical life on these shores. The platforms offered by London's conductors and concert venues helped to launch him as a composer of international stature. Before his first visit to London, he was known only in the German-speaking world and his native Bohemia. By his fifth visit, his fame was on a par with that of his friend and untiring advocate Brahms.

Donald Macleod explores the circumstances of the composer's final trip to Britain which saw the world première of one of his greatest works, the Cello Concerto instigated once again by the redoubtable Royal Philharmonic Society. Since the 1891 première of Dvorák's Requiem in Birmingham, the RPS had made strenuous efforts to arrange a return visit but, from 1892 to 1895, Dvorák had his work cut out as Director of the National Conservatory of Music of America in New York, trying to establish an authentically American school of composition. He complained in letters home that his teaching duties interfered with his composing but, in spite of that, he managed to complete a number of major works, including the Biblical Songs and the Cello Concerto, both of which were on the programme of the RPS concert that eventually took place in Queen's Hall, London, with Dvorák conducting, in March 1896 ? as it turned out, Dvorák's final farewell to Blighty.

FRI 20:45 New Generation Artists (b04g18cq)
The Danish String Quartet

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.

Just one work in tonight's programme: Beethoven's late quartet, Op 131 in C sharp minor. NGAs the Danish Quartet have a real affinity with late Beethoven, and this work is particularly close to their hearts.

FRI 21:30 Sunday Feature (b03f86k6)
Production-Line Living

The industrial revolution has continuously redefined the relationship between man and machine. Never more so than in 1913, when Henry Ford introduced the first assembly line at his Michigan car plant. Now people had to work at the pace of the conveyor belt and for the rest of the twentieth century, until robots began to replace people, factory work entailed the repetition of a single task, producing boredom and anxiety in the workers, but alongside a huge surge in affordable manufactured goods. The writer and broadcaster AL Kennedy asks whether this moment, the introduction of the assembly line, is when we stopped being fully human? 'Production Line Living' is broadcast as a companion to Radio 3's 2013 Free Thinking festival at Sage Gateshead, which is asking "Who's in Control?".

From Charlie Chaplin's hapless, alienated factory worker in Modern Times to Pink Floyd's hammer-headed teacher in 'The Wall' smashing kids into their allotted moulds, AL Kennedy explores the impact and the idea of the production line. She argues that not only did it create the circumstances for mass consumption but it also enabled a 'unitised' redefinition of humanity, for example through the development of time and motion studies, which influenced everything from education and psychology to body size, living spaces, and even the way in which we express our thoughts and aspirations.

Speaking to factory workers, sociologists and psychologists, AL Kennedy teases out how the production line has impacted on our everyday lives, colouring the ways in which we understand ourselves.

Producer: Mark Smalley

BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival takes place at Sage Gateshead 25-27 October and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 25 October.
