Strauss 150: Salome

R Strauss 150:

In Richard Strauss's 150th-anniversary year the Proms presented a double bill of his two great tragedies. This is another chance to hear one of them Salome. Donald Runnicles conducted his Deutsche Oper Berlin forces with soprano Nina Stemme in the title role of 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 the imprisoned prophet, 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. Presented by John Shea.

There'll also be a Radio 3 Opera Guide to Salome before the music.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03c06zv)
Greg Doran

Greg Doran is one of those lucky people who seem to have found his perfect place in life. From the age of 13, when his mother first took him to the theatre in Stratford, Shakespeare's been his passion; as a boy he dedicated himself to seeing every single Shakespeare play - sometimes managing to watch three Macbeths in a day.

So - what better job than Artistic Director of our great national Shakespeare company, a role he took on 18 months ago. His production of Richard II with David Tennant in the lead opens on 10 October, and he's directing Henry IV next year with his partner Anthony Sher playing Falstaff.

Doran doesn't come from a theatrical background - his father ran a nuclear power station. But his passion for music began early, thanks to a concert in the local village hall in Lancashire. A friend of his mother's, Mrs Sidebottom, got up on stage and sang 'Blow the Wind Southerly'. And young Greg was hooked. That haunting folk song begins his choice of music - sung in this case by Kathleen Ferrier. Other choices include Duke Ellington, a song by Cervantes, and a Vivaldi Concerto which changed Doran's life when he heard it in Paris. It was a low point - a love affair had ended, his ambition to be an actor was foundering. And the music spoke to him, and gave him a new direction.

In Private Passions, he talks to Michael Berkeley about his passion for Shakespeare, and about his relationship with Antony Sher. Its foundations are a shared life in theatre, but also a love of food: when Anthony's depressed, Greg cooks for him the comfort food he ate as a child in South Africa. He's even learned how to make a special lamb stew - and he gives us the recipe: "I believe there is a Jewish saying that food is love. For me, tomato bredie is an expression of love."

First broadcast in October 2013.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b04prm4t)
In the Shadow of the Tower (Exhibition Exposed)

Professor Andrew Hussey travels across Paris to understand how the Eiffel Tower, and the huge World's Fair that gave birth to it, shaped French culture.

The Exposition Universelle of 1889 was a vast showground of science and culture which attracted 30 million visitors to Paris. The world had never seen such technology, art, music, and futuristic architecture gathered in one place.

Andrew Hussey chases the shadows it cast, glimpses of its colossal political ambition - to put France back on the world stage; to define what it meant to be French, and what it meant to be civilised.

He walks the streets of Paris with author Eric Hazan, re-imagines the Belle Epoque and the spectacle - the iron, the glass, the noise - with novelist and poet Patrick McGuinness. And strolling past Debussy, Paul Gauguin, Thomas Edison and other visitors, he ascends the Tower itself with architect Bertrand Lemoine, as it climbs ever taller and ever thinner into the Parisian sky. And finds not just a phantasmagoria of republicanism, art and progress, but a long shadow - a colonial legacy, a Human Zoo, which created debates which still resonate in French culture today.

Producer: Melvin Rickarby.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04prmqs)
Manuel de Falla (1876-1946)

A Single Sheet of Notepaper

Born on Cadiz in Andalucia in 1876, Manuel de Falla was a diffident and reserved figure. Over the course of his long life - seven decades - he composed relatively little: one of his biographers points out that the entire list of his compositions could be written on a single sheet of note paper. He reached his artistic maturity at the time of Spain's so-called "Silver Age", with the emergence of Lorca, Bunuel, Miro and Dali, when artists were fully engaged in a debate over national identity. Manuel de Falla sustained this debate in his music and can be seen as the pre-eminent Spanish composer of the 20th Century. In this programme Donald Macleod explores Manuel de Falla's early work, until his departure for Paris in 1907.

The Carnival Overture was originally part of a cycle of three overtures to which Dvorák gave the title Nature, Life and Love in 1891. It was only later that he split up the three overtures to give them all independent life. The Overture is followed by Beethoven's Second Piano Concerto, which shows the composer still under the influence of Mozart but beginning to find his own voice. The concert ends with a performance of one of the landmark works of the mid-twentieth century - Bartók's mighty showpiece the Concerto for Orchestra.


MON 22:00 Sunday Feature (b03xpvhy)
Music and the Jews

I've Heard There Was a Secret Chord

Another chance to hear the first programme in a three-part series examining the complex relationship between music and Jewish identity, presented by Norman Lebrecht.

Spanning thousands of years, from King David and the creation of the Psalms, to composers writing today including Steve Reich and Robert Saxton, Norman uncovers a wealth of fascinating stories about the role music has played at some of the key points in Jewish history.

Today, the acclaimed Ladino singer Yasmin Levy explains why music and memory became so intertwined when the Jews were expelled from Spain at the end of the 15th century, rabbi Shlomo Levin tells the amazing story of how a marching tune sung by Napoleon and his troops in 1812 became an integral part of Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for Jewish people, and the musicologist Gila Flam has some surprising revelations about the music sung by the Jews in the Nazi concentration camps.

With contributions from rabbi Yehoshua Engelman, the composer Steve Reich, Professor Edwin Seroussi from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the musicologist and and founder of the Boston Camerata Joel Cohen, the violinist Eyal Shiloach, rabbi Shlomo Levine, and Dr Gila Flam, Head of the Music Department at the National Library in Jerusalem.

Producer Emma Bloxham

First broadcast in March 2014.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b04prn2r)
Shaping the Air - Writers and Radio

Shaping the Air - Writers and Radio: Samuel West

The first of five essays on the voice and radio - all delivered by seasoned broadcasters and practitioners. Actor Samuel West explores the art of performance and declarative language. How should an actor speak? What is the best way to read poetry on the radio? How does radio drama get by without images? Are the pictures really better?

Recorded in front of an audience at the British Academy in London in October 2014 as part of a series of events marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dylan Thomas, himself one of the best known radio voices of all time.

Subsequent essays from the British Academy come from veteran Irish broadcaster Olivia O'Leary, Professor of Media David Hendy, Radio Merseyside's phone-in host Roger Phillips and Radio 4's Fi Glover - all sharing their varied perspectives on the art of radio.

Producer: Tim Dee.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04prn2t)
Hyperactive Kid and Starlight

Hyperactive Kid and Starlight perform at the 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival in a double-bill that shows off the vibrancy of today's jazz scene in Berlin.

Underpinning the sounds of this week's programme is drummer Christian Lillinger - one of Germany's most exciting and energetic young players, who also featured recently on Jazz on 3 with his large ensemble Grund. Here taking to the stage at London's Vortex, it's a focus on the trio setting that allows his prowess at the kit to shine.

Lillinger is joined by Philipp Gropper on saxophones and Ronny Graupe on 7-string electric guitar in Hyperactive Kid - a band together now for over a decade, who tackle free-flowing and agile music with a typically restless spirit. And in Starlight, the drummer is met in the low frequencies by Swedish-born bassist Petter Eldh - known for causing a stir in groups such as Django Bates' Belovèd. With alto saxophonist Wanja Slavin completing the line-up, they explore spiralling grooves and layered rhythmic interplay with the intent to "mess with people's heads and give the jazz mainstream an alternative".

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Miranda Hinkley.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04prphg)
Manuel de Falla (1876-1946)

An Extension of My Home Country

Donald Macleod explores the life and work of Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. In 1907 Falla moved to Paris, with a promise of a concert tour that in the end never materialised. He managed to gather together enough pupils to be able to afford stay on, and lived there for the next seven years. He said he found in Paris "what became an extension of my home country." It was in France that Falla's opera La Vida Breve first found success, after which it seems that he was intending to settle permanently in Paris. He hoped his parents and his sister would be able to join him: "not in Paris but a healthy quiet village, cheerful and picturesque, within an hour of the Gare Saint-Lazare." However, very soon afterwards he found Paris mobilising for WW1 and, in common with thousands of other foreigners, left the city, and he returned to neutral Spain.

The Academy of Ancient Music
Gergely Madaras (conductor)

Period instrument ensemble The Academy of Ancient Music takes us to Vienna and Paris - two of the most important musical cities in the 18th century, where both Mozart and Gluck worked and found inspiration.
Bavarian-born and Austrian-educated, Christoph Willibald Gluck became master of the Parisian stage, renowned for his reforming operas, into which he injected human drama. This is also a crucial element of his masterpiece ballet, Don Juan, first performed in Vienna in 1761. Familiar to anyone who knows Mozart's opera on the same subject, Don Giovanni, the ballet's story tells of the notorious philanderer's descent into hell, complete with wild fandango and terrifying passacaglia.
Mozart was inspired by the bustling Parisian music scene but not by the city itself. His unhappy time there in the 1770s was not improved by a commission for a concerto for flute and harp, apparently two of his least favourite instruments. Yet the concerto sparkles with joy and playfulness, and has become a well-loved favourite.

Manuel de Falla (1876-1946)

Battles with the Muscovite Theatre

Donald Macleod explores the life and work of Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. In later life Manuel de Falla made considerable efforts to distance himself from politics, but while World War One was raging, he put his name to a manifesto which had been prepared by the philosopher, Jose Ortega y Gasset. This document decried Spain's neutrality in the light of what it called Germany's "fermenting of egotism, of domination and of shameless violence." Spain's neutral position led a number of prominent artists to visit the country, including Diaghilev and his famous Ballet Russes company. Ever the shrewd businessman, Diaghilev realised that they could really ingratiate themselves with audiences in Spain if they gave them a Spanish ballet. Manuel de Falla was prompted to turn his pantomime The Magistrate and the Miller's Wife into the ballet The Three-Cornered Hat, staged with sets by Pablo Picasso.

Bournemoth SO - Mahler, Beethoven, Shostakovich

Live from the Lighthouse, Poole.
Martin Handley presents a concert from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and their inspirational Ukrainian Music Director Kirill Karabits which opens with Mahler's Blumine, a short movement which he described as a "sentimentally impassioned... love-episode," and ends with the symphony with which Shostakovich restored his reputation with his Soviet masters. The authorities might have bristled as the crowds cheered when Mravinsky, the conductor of that first performance, lifted the score above his head in triumph but they soon claimed that they found everything they had demanded of Shostakovich restored in this Fifth symphony.

Shaping the Air - Writers and Radio

Shaping the Air - Writers and Radio: David Hendy

The third of five personal essays on the voice and radio. Former BBC journalist and now media professor David Hendy explores how, in the early years of radio, the voices coming through the airwaves were heard and regarded. Why did a heard voice carry more swaying power than written words, why did a radio voice carry - so experiments and test showed - even more potency? How did radio become a tool for demagogues? Why are our ears susceptible?

Manuel de Falla (1876-1946)

Music Is a Thing of Mystery

In the autumn of 1920, Manuel de Falla moved to Granada with his sister Maria del Carmen. The house in which they lived, from 1920-1939, in a little alley in the old Moorish quarter of Granada, overlooked by the Alhambra palace, is now the Manuel de Falla House-Museum. Living in Granada was the realisation of a dream for Falla. He now had a refuge from the public world of concert tours. He told one newspaperman: "I am absolutely dedicated to music, and music must be lived, must be inside you; it must be formed naturally. Music is a thing of mystery!" Donald Macleod celebrates Falla's exploratory music from this settled period.

Strauss 150: Die schweigsame Frau

STRAUSS 150

Katie Derham presents this week's opera matinee as part of Radio 3's continuing complete Strauss opera series to mark the 150th anniversary of his birth.

A landmark live performance of Strauss's 3-act comedy Die schweigsame Frau (The Silent Woman), Op. 80, recorded at the Salzburg Festival on 6th August 1959. A stellar cast list, including Hans Hotter Lucia Popp and Georgine von Milinkovic, is directed by of one of the great Strauss conductors, Karl Böhm.

The libretto for Die schweigsame Frau was the result of Strauss's only collaboration with the Jewish author Stefan Zweig, based on Ben Jonson's play, "The Silent Woman." Cantankerous outbursts are commonplace in the life of Sir John Morosus, a retired admiral who is hypersensitive to all kinds of noise - including the music of an opera troupe ushered in by the unexpected return of his long-lost nephew. Soon Morosus is at the centre of a farce cooked up by various characters, who present him with an allegedly silent woman to marry. However, the relationship turns into a hilarious nightmare.

We also explore Italy as a tourist - through the music of German composer Mendelssohn who was inspired to write his fourth symphony whilst on holiday. It's an uplifting piece full of joyous melodies - as Mendelssohn himself described in a letter to his sister, it's "the jolliest piece I have ever done". Soprano Ruby Hughes makes her eagerly anticipated return to BBC NOW after her sublime performance at the Proms of Durufle's Requiem, praised by critics as "exquisitely poised and passionate".

In 'GLOBAL CRISIS: WAR, CLIMATE CHANGE AND CATASTROPHE', Parker reflects on how extreme weather conditions exacerbated crises in the affairs of states from Ireland to China, how governments responded well or badly, and what the lessons might be for today's Global Governance.

As TATE MODERN opens an exhibition CONFLICT TIME AND PHOTOGRAPHY, former New Generation Thinker Dr ZOE NORRIDGE from Kings' College London discusses images of war with Austrian photographer ALEX SCHLACHER, who has spent 3 years with the Gurkhas and has documented the work of US Marines in Afghanistan as well as law enforcement in the US and Austria.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04prphn)
Manuel de Falla (1876-1946)

A Deeper, More Noble Revolution?

Donald Macleod explores Manuel de Falla's final years. In the late spring of 1936, the newspaper El Sol informed its readers: "Spain... exudes an atmosphere of civil war." Manuel de Falla's position on the political tensions which were threatening to tear Spain apart was somewhat ambivalent. Both sides - the Republicans and the extreme Right Wing - tried to woo him to their cause. He didn't sign up with either but made this statement: "The French Revolution was not fundamentally the work of writers and philosophers, but rather the result of the fact that Catholics had forgotten their principles of justice and love... which are essential to Christian belief... the only solution for this is not a conservative counter-revolution... but rather another deeper and more noble revolution, guided by the love of God." His memories of the civil war seem to have left such deep scars that he no longer felt at home in Granada, and shortly after Franco's nationalists had ousted the government in Madrid, Falla and his sister left for Argentina, where he had accepted a conducting engagement from the Buenos Aires Cultural Institute.

Vanessa Redgrave, Lawson Trio

A war theme is threaded through today's In Tune.
First up comes a special marriage of actors and musicians when Sean welcomes Vanessa Redgrave, bass Laurent Naouri, and pianist Guillaume de Chassy as they prepare for A Song of Good and Evil at the Southbank. They'll be with lawyer Philippe Sands and together will perform excerpts from his original piece on the 1946 Nuremberg trial.
Philippe Sands' A Song of Good and Evil offers new insights into the conflict and connections between three men at the heart of the Nuremberg trial - Cambridge academic Hersch Lauterpacht, Polish prosecutor Raphael Lemkin, and Hitler's lawyer Hans Frank - with music that crossed the courtroom to connect prosecutors and defendant.

And in this commemorative year of World War One The Lawson Trio offers a taster of some of their Echoes of World War One project at King's Place, which explores chamber and vocal works written during during the conflict on both sides of the English Channel.

Main news headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b04ps0l7)
BBC SO - Schubert, Mahler, Hans Rott

Live from the Barbican Hall
Presented by Ian Skelly

The BBC SO conducted by Marc Minkowski in music by Hans Rott, Bruckner's pupil and Mahler's contemporary. Plus Schubert's 4th Symphony and Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen.

Music by three Austrian composers. Schubert was 19 when he wrote his 4th Symphony in April 1816. Hans Rott died in 1884 at the age of 25, four years after completing his 1st Symphony. Coincidentally neither composer's symphony was performed in their lifetime.

Katerina Karneus joins for Mahler's great song cycle in which a grief-stricken lover reflects on his fate.

Schubert: Symphony no.4 in C minor, 'Tragic'
Mahler: Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen

8.25pm Interval: Anton Bruckner, organ tutor to the young Hans Rott, provides the Prelude and Fugue to start tonight's interval. Then a performance by the BBC Singers of his setting of Robert Prutz's text 'Um Mitternacht'. Reporting that Rott improvised 'wonderfully' at the keyboard, we hear Bruckner's own Piano Sonata in G minor interpreted by Fumiko Shiraga.

c. 8.50pm

Hans Rott: Symphony no.1

Katerina Karneus (mezzo-soprano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Marc Minkowski (conductor).

Ian's guests on the 'cabaret of the word' are Wendy Cope, whose new book is 'Life, Love and the Archers: Recollections, Reviews and Other Prose'. Joanna Bourke discusses the language of pain and Richard Lloyd Parry on the popularity of Lafcadio Hearn on Japan. The poet Tim Clare is celebrating the Oxford University Press word of the year, 'Vape', with some 'experimental etymology'.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b04ps0mx)
Shaping the Air - Writers and Radio

Shaping the Air - Writers and Radio: Fi Glover

The last of five personal essays on the voice and radio. Broadcaster Fi Glover on how radio voices make the global local and the local global. Fi Glover has worked in almost every job that radio offers and is currently presenting the Listening Project on BBC Radio 4 - a programme in which her voice hardly appears whilst the voices of its contributors (ordinary people often at corners of their lives) are rich in personality and incident. Is radio good at not presenting and just listening? Has the BBC traditionally over-managed those who speak on its airwaves? And what of hate speech and hate radio? Why does the radio voice still reach deep into our hearts and minds in the era of screen-based living and social media?

An essay given in front of an audience at the British Academy in London in October 2014 as part of a series of events marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dylan Thomas. Producer: Tim Dee.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b04ps1hg)
Mary Ann Kennedy - Sondorgo in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the world plus Hungarian folk-based, five-piece group Sondorgo live in session, bringing to life a largely unknown repertoire from the Balkans, inspired by its Slavonic roots. Sandorgo, currently taking the world music scene by storm, is a tambouritza band built around the remarkable tambura, a fresh and sparkly mandolin-like plucked instrument, supported by wind instruments and an accordion.
