Lucy Worsley

Duchess Sophia Dorothea of Brunswick and Luneburg

Historian Lucy Worsley introduces the first of three programmes exploring music and the wives of the Georgian kings, today the Duchess Sophia Dorothea of Brunswick and Lüneburg.

The story of the wife of George I is a tragic tale of abuse and political intrigue. The woman who should have been Queen of Great Britain spent more than thirty years, a prisoner in a moated stately home in Northern Germany, and never set foot in the country.

Lucy Worsley recounts her story, juxtaposed with a selection of music linked or associated with the Duchess. Including music by JS Bach, Steffani and Handel.

SAT 18:15 Opera on 3 (b04p50z1)
Donizetti's Les Martyrs

Donizetti's unjustly neglected Les Martyrs, revived at the Royal Festival Hall by Opera Rara and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, conducted by Mark Elder.

Presented by Ivan Hewett and Simon Rees.

Polyeucte.....Michael Spyres (tenor)
Pauline.....Joyce El-Khoury (soprano)
Sévère..... David Kempster (baritone)
Félix.....Brindley Sherratt (bass)
Calisthènes.....Clive Bayley (bass-baritone)
Néarque..... Wynne Evans (tenor)
Opera Rara Chorus
Renato Balsadonna (chorus director)
Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Sir Mark Elder (conductor)

Les Martyrs was Donizetti's first grand opera for Paris. It was based on his Italian work, Poliuto, written for Naples but banned there because of its religious content.
Donizetti, well aware his new Paris opera was an important international debut, went to enormous pains to adapt Les Martyrs for the French stage, adding an elaborate new overture, the obligatory ballet score, and - most importantly - several complex and musically innovative ensemble scenes. The end result is one of the composer's most challenging and musically varied scores, with a level of orchestral and harmonic detail not found in his more popular Italian operas.
Les Martyrs soon disappeared from the Paris Opéra's repertory, although it had some circulation in an Italian version in the mid 19th century. Since then, however, it has very rarely been heard.
In this revival by Opera Rara Les Martyrs is performed on period instruments by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and with singers adept at the particular demands of French grand opera at this period. Sir Mark Elder conducts, restoring to life one of Donizetti's most remarkable and most unjustly neglected late operas.

Recorded 4th November 2014.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b04p50z3)
Elliott Carter, Ian Wilson, Liza Lim

Poetry is the spur for music written towards the end of Elliott Carter's long life, recorded at the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's Carter retrospective earlier this year.

Carter's 'Symphonia sum fluxae pretium spei' is a product of his ninth decade. It's a three-movement, forty-five minute orchestral tour de force inspired by seventeenth-century English poet Richard Crawshaw's conceit of observing human life from a bubble floating in the air. An image from William Carlos Williams's 'Rain' permeates Carter's 2002 'Boston Concerto'. 'As the rain falls so does your love bathe every open object of the world' provokes shimmering orchestration from Carter and a dedication to his wife, Helen.

Next month Ian Wilson celebrates reaching a mere half century. 'Causeway' is the final part of a trilogy reflecting aspects of Wilson's native Northern Ireland. Here, Northern Ireland's geology is the starting point and Wilson uses electronically-generated samples to evoke shifting tectonic plates, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions which pervade the orchestral texture, including a concertante group of flute, oboe, horn and trumpet.

And in Composers' Rooms, Sara Mohr-Pietsch visits Liza Lim's Manchester home.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b04p51zp)
John Harvey

Crime writer John Harvey has no shortage of fans. His prize-winning books have sold over a million copies and have been translated and published all over the world. His Nottingham detective Charlie Resnick is now so well known – after 12 novels, two television adaptations and four radio plays – that he seems like a real person: a brooding solitary sensitive man who has a passion for ... listening to jazz. And this is where the fans come in. Because for years now they have been sending Harvey compilation tapes of the kind of jazz tracks that they think Resnick would enjoy. So no surprise to discover that his creator John Harvey has a lifelong love of jazz, conceived during a misspent youth in London jazz clubs.

As part of the jazz season across Radio 2 and 3, with highlights from the London Jazz Festival, John Harvey chooses his favourite jazz tracks. The playlist includes early Billie Holliday, Thelonius Monk, James P. Johnson and Chet Baker. Harvey, who’s a fine poet as well as a crime writer, reads a moving poem about Chet Baker’s mysterious death. Other music choices include Shostakovich, Mendelssohn’s ‘Hebrides Overture’, and a Tango for corrugated iron by Jocelyn Pook.

Harvey reveals that he dislikes how crime fiction has changed during the 25 years he’s been writing it: ‘There almost seems to be a competition who can have the most disgusting things in their books, and what awful things you can do particularly to female victims.’ And he talks about his decision to retire his detective Resnick, leaving him sitting on a park bench, ‘hankering after a fresh helping of Thelonius Monk`.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b01jyzf9)
London

Words and Music: London

Words and Music celebrates the great capital city with music and texts read by two distinguished London-born actors, Dame Eileen Atkins and Sir David Jason.

In many ways a city of contradictions, Words and Music celebrates the Thames, the church bells, the parks and the architecture, along with the less salubrious side of the city - the overcrowding, the noise and the stench which Londoners have complained about for centuries. We view London through the eyes of its chroniclers such as Daniel Defoe and John Evelyn, along with eminent visitors to the city such as Handel and Haydn. There are also references to key events in London's history - the Fire, the Plague, the Blitz, and the terror of Jack the Ripper. Above all, there is a sense of the love of the city from the writings of authors and poets who lived there, including Charles Dickens, George Orwell, T.S. Eliot and John Keats.

London has inspired many composers, and the readings are accompanied by music by Vaughan Williams, Walton, Britten, Haydn and Elgar.

Producer: Ellie Mant.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b04p51zy)
New Generation Thinkers

Christopher Harding, John Gallagher

Documentaries presented by two of Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers.

FREUD IN ASIA

Christopher Harding explores the influence of Freud on psychotherapy in Japan and India. Freud's travels around Europe and the USA a century ago catapulted psychotherapy to fame.

The invitations to Japan and India came too late for him to travel but he found his work debated throughout Asia. In India he was discussed by British colonial officers, who penned amateur tracts about Indian nationalism as mere sexual trauma.

Thousands of miles further east in Tokyo, Freud was partnered with a medieval Buddhist saint in the hybrid psychoanalytic technique of Heisaku Kosawa. Mishima read and was influenced by his work. Christopher Harding explores the spread of Freud's influence and its significance.

A JOURNEY INTO THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE PHRASE BOOK

John Gallagher focuses on the history of a long-overlooked form of literature: the foreign language phrase book. The British often assume that most people we meet abroad will speak English - and many of them do.

This was not the case three or four centuries ago, when the Grand Tour became a rite of passage and an increasing number of entrepreneurs forged trade links across Europe and beyond. At that time English was a minority language.

Phrase books and travel guides of the time reveal the preoccupations of the day and, in the varied dialogues and phrases they offered, reflect the needs of a variety of travellers, be they tourists keen to visit the art of Italy or the salons of Paris, merchants seeking to make deals in Dutch marketplaces, or spies intent on learning the secrets of continental powers.

Big Band

Pioneers

During the London Jazz Festival this week Donald Macleod is joined by jazz trumpeter, composer and conductor Guy Barker to look at the story of Big Band Jazz. From pioneers like Fletcher Henderson, the superstars of swing Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw, to Dizzy Gillespie and Gil Evans, they explore the development of the art of arranging for big band from the 1920s onwards, and the contributions of the key figures involved over the decades.

In the first programme this week Donald Macleod looks at the pioneers of the big band sound, including Fletcher Henderson and Paul Whiteman, with the help of Guy Barker. While Henderson helped to establish the model for big band arranging for the next two decades, Whiteman created a show band and aimed to take jazz into the concert halls.

Antarctica: Testing Ground for the Human Species

Two hundred years ago, Antarctica was discovered by Russian explorers and throughout this year the the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust is marking that anniversary. As we approach the date in June which is celebrated as midwinter with a special meal on the research stations - here's a chance to hear Rana Mitter and guests discussing the lure of this polar region both in our imaginations and as an aid to understanding what is happening to the planet.

Rana Mitter's guests are:
writer Meredith Hooper, who has visited Antarctica under the auspices of three governments, Australia, UK and USA and is currently curating an exhibition about Shackleton and the Encyclopedia Britannica he took with him on Endurance.
Polar explorer Ben Saunders completed the longest human-powered polar exploration in history to the South Pole and back, retracing Captain Scott’s Terra Nova expedition.
Architect Hugh Broughton is the designer behind Halley VI, the UK's scientific base on the Brent Ice Shelf
Jonathan Bamber is one of the world's leading experts on ice and uses satellite technology to monitor the mass of Antarctica's ice sheets; his work is central to predictions of ice melt and rising sea levels. He is head of the Bristol Glaciology Centre.

Recorded in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of Ideas at Sage Gateshead in November 2014

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04p5272)
Branford Marsalis Quartet

Saxophonist Branford Marsalis's quartet is one of the most revered and long-established ensembles in contemporary jazz. Growing up in New Orleans as part of the Marsalis dynasty that includes his pianist father Ellis and trumpeter brother Wynton, Branford's music communicates a deep reverence for the jazz tradition while also reflecting a career that has taken in funk, R&B and performances as a classical soloist. With only one change in personnel in over a decade, his quartet has an almost telepathic sense of interplay and an intense, adventurous spirit. Marsalis is joined by Joey Calderazzo on piano, Eric Revis on bass and drummer Evan Sherman in this performance recorded at the 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival, presented by Jez Nelson.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Joby Waldman, Chris Elcombe.

The Swing Era

Donald Macleod is joined by Guy Barker to look at the swing era, when predominantly white bandleaders like Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey and Artie Shaw took big band jazz to a mass audience. Swing was king, and its popularity came to a head during the Second World War, when the music became the sound of America. They explore the work of the superstars of the day, as well as that of less well-known arrangers and bandleaders who were to have a huge influence on the future sound of big bands.

Presented by Martin Handley

The BBC Symphony Orchestra in Strauss and Respighi. The BBC Singers join for the UK premiere of The Annunciation - Brett Dean's depiction of the journey of the Three Kings. Josep Pons conducts.

The Annunciation - a commission to celebrate the 800th Birthday of Bach's own Thomanerchor (St Thomas' Choir) of Leipzig in 2012 - is a Christmas work which uses the story of the Three Kings as both vehicle and metaphor for a journey from darkness into light.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b04p52y5)
BBC SSO - Sibelius, MacMillan, Shostakovich

Live from City Halls Glasgow

Presented by Jamie MacDougall

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra welcomes back long-time collaborator Martyn Brabbins to conduct a concert of darkness and light.

At the core of this evening's programme is James MacMillan's Piano Concerto No. 3. The orchestra is joined by Peter Donohoe to perform 'The Mysteries of Light', the composer re-imagining the rituals of his strongly-held religious faith through the musical structure of this 'quasi-dramatic' meditation.

MacMillan talks about a concept not far from a concerto tone-poem, while the concert opens with Sibelius' orchestral tone-poem rooted in tale-telling: his work En Saga.

And the evening ends with a symphonic testament to a troubled life and a dark-clouded period in Russian history. Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5, written by a composer contending with artistic censorship and political oppression, features some of his most strongly characterised music and builds to a grand, if ambiguous, climax.

Sibelius: En Saga
James MacMillan: Piano Concerto No. 3, 'The Mysteries of Light'

8.20 Interval
A specially recorded performance of Janacek's String Quartet No 1 by the Doric String Quartet, given at the City Halls in Glasgow earlier this month.

2014 Festival

The Cost of Free Information

Against a backdrop of perceived excess of intellectual property, and problems that require solving with a matter of urgency, Rana Mitter and his panel test the promises of the internet to spread ideas quickly and democratically.
Jodie Ginsburg is the Chief Executive of Index on Censorship and former London bureau chief for Reuters.
Dr Rufus Pollock is Founder and President of Open Knowledge, an international non profit organisation which promotes making data and information accessible.
Kenneth Cukier is Data Editor for The Economist magazine.

From advocates of open source who claim that information should be set free from to new economic models that purport to place cooperation over competition, the discussion looks at what these changes mean and how they ripple out to affect our behaviour offline as well as on - disrupting notions of ownership and originality.

Recorded in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of Ideas at Sage Gateshead. The festival theme this year was the limits of knowledge.

All the discussions and essays from the Free Thinking festival are available as Radio 3 Arts and Ideas downloads.

Producer: Georgia Catt.
