SAT 09:00 CD Review (b060bd51)
Building a Library: Britten: Les Illuminations

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Erica Jeal compares available versions of Britten's Les Illuminations and makes a personal recommendation.

Throughout his career, Britten's instinct was unerring when it came to choosing texts suitable to set to music. The 25-year-old Britten's selection of Rimbaud's poetry in Les Illuminations is a dazzling demonstration both of that and his equally sure touch for idiomatic vocal and instrumental writing. But although it quickly became the province of Peter Pears in particular and tenors in general, Les Illuminations was dedicated to and premiered by Sophie Wyss, marking the final flourish of Britten's love affair with the soprano voice. So who will 'have the key to this savage parade' - soprano or tenor?

1045
Gillian Moore listens to a wide-ranging selection of recent releases of 20th- and early 21st-century music including Judith Weir, Helmut Lachenmann, Harry Partch and Harrison Birtwistle.

Max Emanuel Cencic and Pomo d'Oro

The Croatian-born countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic teams up with the ensemble Pomo d'oro to perform Baroque Italian music including works by Vivaldi, Albinoni, Gasparini and Caldara.

Cencic made his name as a boy soprano in the Vienna Boys Choir, retrained as a high countertenor, and has gone on to further international success in performing widely varying dramatic roles in opera. In this concert, recorded at last year's Lausanne Bach Festival, Cencic focuses on music which reflects the many colourful moods of Venice - its sweetness, romance, love and death.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b060bprp)
Rachel Nicholson

Rachel Nicholson has an extraordinary artistic background: her mother was Barbara Hepworth, her father Ben Nicholson. Yet despite, perhaps because of, the burden of that parentage, she herself did not begin to paint until she was in her forties. Now in her early eighties, she's established a reputation as a painter of rhythmically beautiful landscapes and still lifes; her work influenced perhaps by her father's sense of space and colour, but very much her own.

She paints every day in an attic studio in North London; for Private Passions she invited Michael Berkeley to her studio and gave a rare interview, revealing the central role music has played for her, right from earliest childhood. Rachel Nicholson has synaesthesia, which means that when she listens to music, she sees colours; so music provides inspiration when she's stuck, or searching for a new colour palette. She remembers sitting on the stairs listening to the music drifting from her mother's studio, but it was no ordinary childhood: Rachel was a triplet, and the babies were sent to a nursing college to be looked after as infants. Only later did she return home with a nanny from the college, and then she was sent away again to school. She was so excited when she first heard Bach's B Minor Mass at Dartington Hall School that she spent all her pocket money going to every performance. Other music choices include Haydn, Scarlatti, Handel, Schubert, Mozart, John Adams, and Priaulx Rainier - a composer who was a close friend of Barbara Hepworth's, and whom Rachel Nicholson remembers well.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b060bprw)
A Celebration of Sport

The joy, drama and human folly of the sporting calendar from rugby to the Olympics. The readers are Robert Powell and Pippa Bennett-Warner. As people recover from activities for this year's BBC Sports Relief, Words and Music takes us through the British summer sporting calendar from the optimism of April and the Grand National through the three-jerseyed days of the early cricket season into the warmth of Wimbledon, the heat of the British Open Golf, the elegance of Henley and culminating with competitors leaving for the Olympics in June.

Music from Warlock, Weber, Carl Davis and William Alwyn blends with the sometimes surprising words of Shakespeare, Milton and the many writers on sport from the heyday of Edwardian endeavour to the 20th-century frivolity of PG Wodehouse and John Betjeman and on to the enthusiasms of Alison Uttley and the beautiful reflections of the very best cricket writers like Neville Cardus and all-rounder Simon Barnes, with poetry from Roger McGough and John Arlott.

Producer: Tom Alban

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b060bpry)
A Most Ingenious Paradox: Loving G&S to Death?

Mike Leigh's operatic directorial debut took place at ENO last year with his production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance", due to be revived in 2017.

Leigh once berated directors for failing to understand G&S, resulting in "boring, bland, sentimental, self-conscious, often gratuitously camp productions, which entirely miss their point". So what is their point, and how should they be performed in the 21st century?

The tradition of Gilbert and Sullivan performance is still alive and kicking both in the UK and internationally. University G&S societies enjoy healthy membership, local amateur companies still exist, and there is a dedicated international festival in Harrogate.

But it can be argued that what keeps G&S alive is also what kills it. Cosy, comfortable urbanity, middle-brow high jinks, the old tradition-bound productions of D'Oyly Carte, and the reluctance of the British musical establishment to take it all seriously.
Martin Handley, who himself has conducted many productions, examines the paradox that is the continuing survival of G&S.

He speaks to directors Mike Leigh, who wants to let the operettas speak for themselves, Sir Jonathan Miller, whose famous production of The Mikado continues to be revived over 30 years on, and young director Sasha Regan, whose all-male productions are bringing the works to a whole new audience. Martin also speaks to singers Barry Clark, who speaks of the dying days of the old D'Oyly Carte Company, Dame Felicity Palmer, who has taken on several of the problematic "older woman" roles, and also younger singers who haven't grown up with the tradition. He also hears from the amateur scene, and speaks to G&S scholars Dr Ian Bradley and Dr Carolyn Williams who reflect on the social landscape of G&S participation and fandom, the male-dominated world of the lyric-quoting obsessive and the rather conflicted female view - great fun to perform but what of the inherent Gilbertian misogyny and the somewhat cardboard cut-out emotional style?

This is an exploration of the state of G&S in the current cultural landscape: its tenacious survival, the various routes it takes to get to the stage, both amateur and professional, and its unexpected renaissance in universities and colleges, where it is blossoming and where much of its future may lie. Is the occasional professional production enough to keep it going, and to maintain or revive cultural credibility, or is G&S more likely to live on the traditional high Victorian style in the amateur world, in the UK at least?

First broadcast in June 2015.

Conducted by Christoph von Dohnanyi

Now in his 86th year, Christoph von Dohnanyi is showing no signs of slowing down. This season he has conducted major orchestras across Europe and North America - he is still celebrated for his 20 years with the Cleveland Orchestra, where he is now their Music Director Laureate, and his relationship with the Philharmonia stretches back to 1994.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b046cqhq)
Bretton Woods

By Steve Waters. Starring Simon Callow and Henry Goodman.

In July 1944, with the most disastrous war in history in its death-throes, a secret meeting took place in a hotel deep in the forests of New Hampshire. Bankers and economists from over forty nations met to draw up a settlement to save the world economy and secure the peace. Everything depended on two men - John Maynard Keynes and Harry Dexter White.

Seen through the eyes of the main participants (including the eccentric Lady Keynes) this dive into big money and high politics takes Bretton Woods as a lens to reflect on one of the most burning issues of our times. Out of this meeting emerged two powerful institutions, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank.

The international gold standard had come to grief in the Depression of the 1930s. A succession of countries, led by Britain, detached their currencies from gold rather than be forced by a fixed exchange-rate to cut demand and increase unemployment. By the summer of 1941, Britain was in debt not just to the United States but to the countries playing host to her armies, such as India and Egypt. Without currency controls, Britain was bankrupt. John Maynard Keynes envisaged a supernational bank in which trading accounts would be settled in bank money that would be available to members as an overdraft facility according to their share of world trade. Behind it would stand the greatest creditor nation, the United States. Over just three weeks in July 1944, the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference, better known from the Mount Washington Hotel's railway stop as the Bretton Woods conference, established a currency regime and the IMF and the World Bank.

A Cast Iron production for BBC Radio 3.

Steve Waters' plays include English Journeys (1998), After the Gods (2002) and Fast Labour (2008) all produced on Hampstead Theatre Main Stage. The Contingency Plan (2009) 'Ignorance/Jahiliyyah', (2012), and Little Platoons (2011). Steve is currently under commission to Birmingham Rep and the Donmar Warehouse. He lectures in creative writing at the University of East Anglia.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

An Italian Composer

When Italy became a unified country in 1861, a heated debate blew up as to how culture might represent this newly formed nation. Two musicians were to stand out as emblems of that ideology, Verdi and the successor to his crown as Italy's king of opera, Giacomo Puccini. Today, Donald Macleod considers how Puccini's music came to be linked with those ideas.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01rl36n)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924)

Freedom Versus Tyranny

While on the one hand, a controversial subject matter and the musical merits of Puccini's "Tosca" would continue to divide opinion for years after its premiere in 1900, on the other, the strength of its dramatic impact immediately struck a chord with audiences. Today Donald Macleod considers how Puccini's masterful adaptation turned Victorien Sardou's play, originally a vehicle for the actress Sarah Bernhardt, into an operatic tour de force.

Touch and Emotion, Siobhan Davies, Public

Choreographer, Siobhan Davies, the artist, Jeremy Millar and the neurologist, Jonathan Cole join Philip Dodd to explore the links between art, dance and the brain. Bloodied but unbowed Philip will then turn his attention to the question of what we mean when we talk about "the public". He'll be spurred on by Danielle Thom, a 2015 New Generation Thinker, who'll be reflecting on the emergence of the idea in the 18th century. Then American anthropologist David Graeber, who lectures at the London School of Economics and the psychotherapist and writer Mark Vernon consider who or indeed what qualifies as the public today.

Siobhan Davies is in residency between 12pm and 6pm July 4th - 10th at Station to Station - a 30 day happening curated by artist Doug Aitken at the Barbican in London.
David Graeber is the author of The Democracy Project: a history, a crisis, a movement and The Utopia of Rules: On Technology, Stupidity and the Secret Joys of Bureaucracy

Series 2

Amman - Jordan, a Country of Nationalists

There are currently wars in two of Jordan's neighbouring countries. The kingdom has a long history of absorbing trouble from its orders and has its origins in the settlement after World War One. Lina Attel is Director General of the King Hussein Foundation, National Centre for Culture and Arts. In this essay, recorded with partners the British Council at the Haya Cultural Centre, Amman, she explains how Jordan's strong cultural identity has sustained it through the turbulent century since the First World War. She says it is a knowledge of the stories of its cultural heroes that will keep the country together as it faces further threats.

Wigmore Hall: Carolyn Sampson and the Heath Quartet

In a concert recorded yesterday at Wigmore Hall in London, Carolyn Sampson and the Heath Quartet premiere American John Musto's 'Another Place', before performing Schoenberg's String Quartet No.2.

Johann Sebastian Bach
Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier BWV 731
Allein Gott in der Höh sei Ehr BWV 662
In dulci jubilo BWV 729

John Musto (b.1954)
Another Place (world première)

INTERVAL

Anton Webern
Slow Movement (Langsamer Satz)

Arnold Schoenberg
String Quartet No.2 in F sharp minor, Op.10

In the final concert of the Wigmore Hall's 'Celebrating Carolyn Sampson' series, the soprano combines with the Heath Quartet in a brilliantly conceived programme that takes them, you, and the music they play to another place. The Quartet open with three Bach organ chorale preludes shifted to strings, before Carolyn joins them in the world premiere of Brooklyn-born John Musto's 'Another Place'. After the interval comes Webern's Slow Movement (Langsamer Satz) with its lush harmonies that marked a crossroads for the composer before he embraced more atonal sounds. Schoenberg's String Quartet No.2 of 1908 is innovative in just about every way, not least because it requires a soprano in the final two movements, which set texts by Stefan George. Carolyn Sampson, so admired for her interpretations of baroque and classical music, takes on the challenge of this sometimes ethereal, sometimes intense work which took the history of music to another place.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b060bsm8)
Friday - Sarah Walker with Pam Ferris

9am
A selection of music including '5 reasons to love... the soprano voice'. As part of Radio 3's Classical Voice season Sarah showcases a range of soprano styles from the lightness of tone of Lucia Popp and the power of Jessye Norman to the warmth of Elisabeth Söderström; from the pure sound of Emma Kirkby to the soothing quality of Elly Ameling.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: Two pieces of music have been altered. Can you identify them?

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the actress Pam Ferris. Pam is well known for her film roles including Miss Trunchbull in Matilda and Aunt Marge in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and for starring in television series ranging from The Darling Buds of May and Rosemary and Thyme to Call the Midwife. Pam will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music with Sarah, every day at 10am.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is the German pianist Wilhelm Kempff. Kempff's career spanned six decades, with a core repertoire of Bach to Brahms and a particular speciality in the music of Beethoven and Schubert. His focus is always on the music, rather than his own virtuosity, and his style is characterized by moderate tempi, an unerring sense of the bigger picture and astonishing melodic beauty. Sarah shares a selection of his major recordings throughout the week.

Chopin
Piano Sonata in B minor, Op 58
Wilhelm Kempff (piano).

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b060bsvq)
Aldeburgh Festival 2015

Episode 4

Tom Redmond continues our week of performances recorded at the 2015 Aldeburgh Festival. Today's programme features just one work - Schubert's Octet in F. The piece was commissioned by one Ferdinand Troyer, a nobleman and amateur clarinettist who asked Schubert to write a companion piece to Beethoven's popular Septet. Schubert obliged with a score in the same six-movement form. Athough written in 1824, it was not published for a further 65 years. Today's performers are soloists from the Mahler Chamber Orchestra who enjoyed a three-concert residency at this year's festival.

Series 2

Dar es Salaam - Ubhuche, Invisible Histories of the First World War

World War One ravaged Tanzania. East Africans were recruited as carriers and fighters, and many more were affected by the destruction of crops by retreating forces. As many as a million died from starvation and sickness as well as from their wounds, yet the war is barely remembered there now. Oswald Masebo, Professor of History at the University of Dar es Salaam, explores the conundrum with an audience at the auditorium of the British Council in Tanzania.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b060bw66)
