Building a Library: Sibelius: Symphony No 4

with Andrew McGregor

9.30 am
Building a Library
David Nice explores the available recordings of Sibelius's 4th Symphony and makes a personal recommendation.

This magnificent symphony shows evidence of struggle or despair and many people hear a chilling bleakness in the work. While others see the influence of Sigmund Freud and the unconscious. In fact Sibelius himself called his composition "a psychological symphony". He also said "It stands as a protest against present-day music. It has absolutely nothing of the circus about it."

c.10.20
Andrew is joined by Rebecca Franks to discuss new releases of chamber music by Franck, Poulenc, Milhaud, Faure and Hahn in performances by Renaud Capucon, Sol Gabetta and Quatuor Ebene etc.

BBC Singers
O Duo
Bob Chilcott (conductor)

Virtuoso percussionists O Duo join the BBC Singers in a programme which explores the visceral and thrilling impact of the human voice when harnessed with percussion instruments of many kinds - starting with the blood-curdling incantation which is Veljo Tormis's curse upon the metal from which instruments of war and destruction are fashioned. Bob Chilcott's 'The Miracle of the Spring' explores one of the building-blocks of life itself, water, in the context of those parts of the world where this precious element is scarce. And - in a programme taking in several different cultures and continents - the world premiere of Cecilia McDowall's brand-new piece celebrates, in Shakespearian words, the joy of music itself.

Conducting the BBC Singers tonight, their Principal Guest Conductor Bob Chilcott celebrates his 60th birthday next week and a place as one of the choral world's best loved living composers.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b05pqr6p)
Lucy Winkett

Michael Berkeley talks to the Reverend Lucy Winkett, the Rector of St James’s Church, Piccadilly, and formerly Canon Precentor of St Paul’s Cathedral, about her lifelong passion for music.

A classically trained soprano, she won a choral scholarship to Cambridge and subsequently studied at the Royal College of Music but gave up a career as a singer for the priesthood. The first woman to sing the Eucharist at St Paul’s Cathedral, she tells Michael about the opposition she faced from traditionalist members of the church, how she faced up to it, and the joy of being in charge of music at the Cathedral.

Lucy chooses music she’s sung, music that inspires her, and some - rather surprising - music that helps her prepare for Easter Day. Her choices include Gibbons, Messiaen, Rachmaninov, Bach, and a wonderful piece of early jazz from ‘Sister’ Winona Carr.

Producer: Jane Greenwood

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b05pqrx0)
Passion Play

In Words and Music this evening the actors Houda Echouafni and Patrick O'Kane explore the story of The Passion and the way that it reverberates in our minds today. Christ's betrayal, the crucifixion and resurrection conjure up powerful images that many of us have grown up with, but images whose clarity, paradoxically, cloak much that is mysterious. The Passion has always inspired writers and composers and their very different ways of understanding it determine the path taken by Houda and Patrick – beginning with the Easter call to prayer of the Orthodox Church in Greece and Romania and traversing the more familiar territory of Handel's Messiah, Bach's St John Passion, as well Arvo Part's Passio and John Adams' The Gospel According to the Other Mary. The words too combine the known with the less well known: the King James Bible with Housman, Michael Symmons Roberts with Philip Pullman and Colm Toibin.

Producer: Zahid Warley


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b05pqrx2)
Memoirs of the Spacewomen

Matthew Sweet journeys into the science fiction futures of three neglected women writers

Despite the founding figure of Mary Shelley, the canon of British science fiction is male-dominated: Wells, CS Lewis, Wyndham, Aldiss. Beyond the canon, however, are a forgotten band of rebels - the women who wrote the future, explored the limits of outer space. Matthew Sweet brings them back from the void.

Interwoven with Matthew Sweet's new dramatisation of Naomi Mitchison's Memoirs of a Spacewoman and with specially composed music from the Vile Electrodes evoking the lost sound of early BBC science fiction programmes.

Matthew roams the corridors of the Ministry of Brains - a government agency created in Rose Macaulay's What-Not (1919), a Wodehousian comedy set in a eugenic Britain. He explores the post-apocalyptic landscape of Margot Bennett's The Long Way Back (1954), in which a survey team of black Africans map out the jungles and ruins of a savage England. And he encounters the weird alien worlds and precisely-imagined ecosystems of Naomi Mitchison's Memoirs of a Spacewoman (1962). We'll also discover the history of radicalism that unites their biographies and backgrounds.

Producer: Allegra McIlroy.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b05pqzdh)
Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)

Roots

Donald Macleod explores the music and life of Chopin, zooming in on five key places on his lifetime itinerary - starting today in the composer's hometown, Warsaw, where he spent the formative years - 20 out of a total 39 - of his life.

Chopin's exceptional gifts - as both pianist and composer - were apparent very early. His first published piece is a creditable effort for a seven-year-old, and by the age of sixteen he was writing music that bore the hallmarks of his mature style. Trips to Berlin and Vienna - where two impromptu concerts at the Kärntnerthor Theatre caused a sensation - gave him a taste for foreign exploration, and heightened his sense that Warsaw could not give him all that he needed as an artist. So at the end of 1830, the 20-year-old Chopin set off on a coach for Vienna, little realizing that the failure of the Polish Uprising - which would be brutally crushed by Russia - was soon to make him a permanent exile.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b05pqzdk)
Wigmore Hall Mondays: Meta4

Live from Wigmore Hall in London, Haydn's Quartet in C Op 20 No 2 and Schumann's String Quartet in A minor, Op 41 No 1, played by Finnish quartet Meta4.

Haydn's quartet comes from a set of six published in 1772, which with its conversational dialogues between instruments represented a major milestone in the maturing of a still-young genre. Whereas Haydn composed nearly 80 quartets, Schumann wrote only three, all in the same year of 1842, and all showing a more lyrical and Romantic way of approaching the form.

MON 19:30 Opera on 3 (b05pr0tg)
From the Met

Verdi's Ernani

Tonight's opera recorded at the New York Metropolitan Opera has the one of the implausible plots of all Verdi opera. Ernani is a melodramatic love story set in 16th-century Spain and based on a play by Victor Hugo. Elvira, sung by soprano Angela Meade, is being pursued by three men: her uncle and guardian, Don Ruy Gómez de Silva, an old Spanish grandee sung by the bass Dimitry Belosselskiy; Don Carlo, the King of Spain, is sung by Luca Salsi, replacing Placido Domingo who is ill. Ernani, sung by tenor Francesco Meli, who has lost his title and wealth during a civil war and has become a very suave bandit. The plot is contrived but just at the end, when things seem to be turning out well for Ernani and Elvira, the story takes a turn for the worst and ends in tragedy. James Levine conducts the New York Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus in his first Met production of Ernani since 1983.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b05pr1h9)
Simon Fell at the 2014 Marsden Jazz Festival

British bass player and composer Simon Fell premieres The Ragging of Time, a new suite for sextet in concert at the 2014 Marsden Jazz Festival.

When approached to write a new commission for the festival Simon Fell began with a brief to explore sounds from the first part of 20th century, and ended up creating "a kind of bridge (or better still, a time tunnel) which allows the musicians to slip backwards and forwards over the decades within a split second". From twisted ragtime to swing era stomps and bursts of free improv, Fell and his sextet present jazz's lineage as one of the festival director's John Quail describes, making "sounds that are now so antique... to make them new, to make them shocking, to make them the 'Devil's music' as it was once before."

On stage drummer Paul Hession and guitarist Richard Comte join the leader in the rhythm section whilst Percy Pursglove, Alex Ward and Shabaka Hutchings complete the line up on trumpet, clarinet and bass clarinet respectively.

Also on the programme, Simon Thackray of The Shed improv venue samples the festival's street parade, and Ian McMillan interviews poet and improviser Michael Horovitz in celebration of his 80th birthday.

Producer: Chris Elcombe.

Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)

The Accidental Parisian

Donald Macleod explores the music and life of Chopin, zooming in on five key places on his lifetime itinerary. Today, after setting out from Warsaw on what was to have been an extended foreign tour, Chopin finds himself a permanent exile in Paris.

Chopin reached Paris via Vienna and Stuttgart, where he had learnt of Russia's brutal suppression of the Polish Uprising. Fearing that if he returned to Poland he might never be allowed to leave again, he decided to stay put - in what was, after all, in those days, the epicentre of the musical universe. An early appearance at the Salle Pleyel - enthusiastically reviewed by Francois Joseph Fétis, a famous musicologist and senior critic of the Revue Musicale - spread Chopin's name like wildfire, and he quickly became a major celebrity on the Parisian cultural scene. Uncomfortable in front of large audiences, he preferred to perform in salons, and made his living teaching piano to the well-heeled. It was at an extremely well-heeled soirée at the Hôtel de France, hosted by Liszt and his mistress, the Countess Marie d'Agoult, that Chopin first encountered the novelist George Sand - snappier pen-name of Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dudevant. Chopin's initial revulsion with Sand gradually turned first to fascination, then attraction; they were to become one of the most celebrated - or perhaps infamous - artistic couples of the 19th century.

While the St Matthew Passion is widely admired for what might be called its epic proportions, the John, in contrast, presents the dramatic narrative with a more concentrated sense of urgency. Many of the arias are, nevertheless, deeply reflective and expressive, none more so than Es ist vollbracht!, in which the countertenor and the viola da gamba weave their melodies together in the most beguiling way.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b05pr3p7)
Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)

The Holiday from Hell

Donald Macleod explores the music and life of Chopin, zooming in on five key places on his lifetime itinerary. Today, the composer visits Majorca, where despite primitive conditions and appalling weather he produces some of his best-known music.

The trip to Majorca wasn't simply a vacation. Chopin and his new lover, the writer George Sand, were, in effect, on the run; they had to get away from Paris for a while. Sand's previous lover, one Félicien Mallefille, had cottoned on to his old mistress's new relationship, and took a potshot at her as she left her apartment building; the bullet, as the story goes, was deflected by a passing wagon. Sand was unscathed, but nonplussed. Majorca was remote enough in those pre-package-holiday days to provide her and Chopin with a bolt-hole until M. Mallefille was able, as they say, to move on, so they decamped there, with Sand's children Maurice and Solange, in November 1838. Initially Palma, where they settled, seemed like a paradise; Chopin wrote to a friend of "sky like turquoise, sea like azure, mountains like emerald, air like in heaven". But then the temperature dropped and the heavens opened. In the cold, damp conditions, Chopin's consumption kicked in, and the local authorities, worried about the risk of a contagion, insisted that the eccentric strangers should move out of town. They upped sticks to an old monastery at Valldemossa, a largely uninhabited area several hours' journey from Palma. Chopin threw himself into his work, but in the rudimentary conditions in which they were now forced to live he eventually became so ill that Sand decided to abandon Majorca and make the journey home to France.

WED 19:45 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b05pr72h)
Ulster Orchestra - Beethoven, Tchaikovsky

John Toal presents this evening's Live in Concert from the Ulster Hall in Belfast. The Ulster Orchestra performs works by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, under the baton of their Chief Conductor, Rafael Payare.

The programme opens with Beethoven's dramatic Egmont Overture, written in 1810 for a Vienna Court Theatre revival of Goethe's drama Egmont. It's followed by Beethoven's earlier Symphony No. 1: a work which, while building on the achievements of Haydn and Mozart, was repeatedly praised for its originality at the premiere in 1800.

During the interval John Toal will talk to Rafael Payare about his career and musical influences.

The second half of the concert begins with Tchaikovsky's Overture to The Queen of Spades: a stirring work encapsulating the drama of Pushkin's text, which tells the tale a young officer Hermann's obsession with winning card games. The Leader of the Ulster Orchestra, Tamás Kocsis, then appears as soloist in Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto. Written in 1878 it is a demanding work for the violin virtuoso, unwavering in melodic inspiration.

Beethoven: Egmont Overture, Op.84
Beethoven: Symphony No. 1 in C Major, Op.21

Interval

Tchaikovsky: Overture: The Queen of Spades, Op.68
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b05pr72k)
Landmark: Anthony Trollope's The Way We Live Now

Free Thinking marks the bicentenary of Anthony Trollope with a programme devoted to his satire, The Way We Live Now. Although savagely reviewed when it first emerged in 1875, the novel has come to be regarded as Trollope's masterpiece - a brilliant and unsettling anatomy of English society with " a vile city ruffian," Melmotte, as its central character.

Philip Dodd is joined by Jerry White, Simon Heffer, Kathryn Hughes and Jonathan Myerson to consider the nature of Trollope's achievement and the novel's place in the literary landscape.

Producer: Zahid Warley.

Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)

Retreat

Donald Macleod explores the music and life of Chopin, zooming in on five key places on his lifetime itinerary. Today, we're at Nohant, a bucolic oasis some 150 miles south of Paris, where Chopin's lover - and, increasingly, carer - the novelist George Sand, had - by aristocratic standards - a modest country château. Here, over seven long summers, the composer produced much of his finest music.

If no-one's made a soap opera about Sand's household at Nohant, they should do. It would be a kind of French Upstairs, Downstairs, with squabbling servants, family tiffs, romantic intrigue and glamorous guests ... all to the soundtrack of Chopin's extraordinary music, caught in the white heat of creation, which in the words of one of those glamorous guests, the painter Eugène Delacroix, "would waft over us from the windows opening onto the garden, while he worked away; the music mingling with the singing of the nightingales and the scent of the roses". Over the years, the cracks began to appear in Chopin's relationship with Sand, and it eventually crumbled - unlike the house at Nohant, which is now preserved as a national monument.

Percy Grainger embraced the world's great traditions of communal music making and 'The Warriors' is his most ambitious work, a helter-skelter of swift, bright, tuneful energy, lustful invention and rhythmic drive.

South Korean Unsuk Chin sees no boundaries between musical cultures, prizing communication above all. Commissioned to explore the unique teenage orchestral energy of the National Youth Orchestra, Mannequin is her latest original work, and this performance is its world première!

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b05pr3pc)
Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849)

London Calling

Donald Macleod explores the music and life of Chopin, zooming in on five key places on his lifetime itinerary. Today, an invitation to London turns into an extended tour of Britain, with disastrous consequences for the composer's fragile health.

Chopin had visited London once before, in 1837, but on that occasion he went strictly incognito. This time, he was invited to play - and as the invitation coincided with fallout from the 1848 Revolution, he was more than happy to have an excuse to get out of the French capital for a few weeks. The main facilitator of Chopin's British sojourn was a middle-aged Scotswoman, Miss Jane Wilhelmina Stirling, a sugar heiress. She had studied the piano with Chopin in Paris, and clearly held something of a torch for him. After a hectic round of concerts, matinées and soirées in the English capital, Miss Stirling whisked her beloved teacher off to her ancestral home north of the border - then back down south to a concert in Manchester, attended by what must have seemed to Chopin an intimidatingly large audience, of 1,200 people - then up to to Scotland again for a round of aristocratic socializing he could well have done without, followed by concerts in Glasgow and Edinburgh - then down once more to what Chopin was by now calling "this hellish London", whose infernal fogs must have been a nightmare for the consumptive composer. Here Chopin performed one final engagement before returning, a husk of his former self, to Paris. He never recovered his health.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b05pr72v)
BBC Symphony Orchestra - Ravel, Prokofiev, Nielsen

Live from the Barbican

Presented by Martin Handley

Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Nielsen's thrilling 5th Symphony and Ravel's iconic Bolero. Alexander Toradze joins for Prokofiev's 3rd Piano Concerto.

Ravel: La Valse
Prokofiev: Piano concerto No. 3 in C Major

c. 8.15pm. Interval

8.35
Nielsen: Symphony No. 5
Ravel: Bolero

Alexander Toradze (Piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

Two works by Maurice Ravel frame this concert: his dizzying reinvention of the waltz and the hypnotic meditation on the Spanish bolero dance, beaten out by a snare drum over a vast span.That same drum plays a sinister role in Nielsen's magnificent Fifth Symphony, its obsessive battering threatening to break up the orchestra's performance in a thrilling battle. The second movement plunges us into a swinging sea of perpetual motion, where a sense of metric time is lost in the shining surge. The BBC Symphony Orchestra's revelatory and highly-praised cycle of Nielsen's Symphonies with Sakari Oramo reaches its penultimate stage tonight.

Acclaimed Georgian pianist Alexander Toradze performs Prokofiev's most elegant and ethereal piano concerto, the glowing third.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b05pr72x)

Springwalks

Philip Hoare in Sholing

Five writers set out on foot to sample the transforming qualities of Spring. They report back with tales that are climatically confused - it could be warm or chilly out there ...

5. Philip Hoare is quickly at the water's edge in Sholing, well before the waking hour. Then meetings with many animals are recalled.

Producer Duncan Minshull.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b05pr7nv)
Lopa Kothari - Noura Mint Seymali in Session

Lopa Kothari with new music from across the globe, plus a live session with Noura Mint Seymali, a singer from the deserts of Mauritania.

Noura Mint Seymali was born into Mauritanian music royalty: her father arranged the country's national anthem, and her mother was Dimi Mint Abba, an iconic figure in Mauritanian music. Noura Mint Seymali began her career at the age of thirteen, as a backing singer for her mother. She later teamed up with, and married, Jeiche Ould Chighaly, who is celebrated in Mauritania for transferring the intricate musical lines of the traditional instrument the tidninit onto the electric guitar. They have been first choice to play for the best weddings in Mauritania for years: now with their four-piece band, they are reaching an international audience. Noura Mint Seymali will also be introducing a classic recording by her mother as her Heritage Track.

Plus the latest from BBC Introducing, and another dip into the Radio 3 World Music Archive.

World on 3 sessions are available for download as a podcast via the home page.
