2015

Prom 31: National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and Mark Elder, live at the BBC Proms, with Mahler's 9th Symphony and the London premiere of a new work by Tansy Davies: Re-greening

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Tansy Davies: Re-greening (London premiere)
Mahler: Symphony No. 9

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
Sir Mark Elder (conductor)

Mahler's bitterly beautiful Ninth Symphony is the focus for the National Youth Orchestra's annual visit to the Proms. Still unperformed at the time of the composer's death, the symphony was the last Mahler would complete - a requiem in all but name from a man who had already lost his daughter and knew his own death was imminent. The work's rich writing for brass and strings makes it one of the greats of the orchestral repertoire. The concert opens with the London premiere of Tansy Davies's Re-greening, a celebration of spring written specially as a complement to Mahler's Symphony No. 9.

[This Prom will be repeated on Monday 17th August at 2pm].


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b045xdst)
How Was Your Day Joe?

Joe is home from school.

"How was your day Joe?" asks his mum Emma (the producer of the programme).

But Joe, and many like him on the autistic spectrum, can't always find the words to summarise their day, or even make sense of the question. Yet later on, they may come round to offering an answer. So what is happening as they struggle to process what is being asked of them?

Through sound and interview, Joe and Emma explore where he and others on the autistic spectrum go to in their minds between the question and a possible answer.

Emma finds out that part of Joe's resistance to giving an answer may come from the fact that he's exhausted just from the effort of processing the transition between school and home. Whereas so-called "neurotypical" people find it easy to make sense of the different settings and can see them in a wider context, people with autism often focus on every tiny detail and find it difficult to filter information. So a short walk up the path to the house may be crammed with observations of every blade of grass, or a struggle to understand why some things have changed since they left- the window being open for instance when it wasn't before.

And the question itself - "How was your day?" Which part of the day? Does Mummy mean "today" or yesterday? Is it the right question to be asking at all?

Emma and Joe hear testimony from others on the autistic spectrum, including the writers Wendy Lawson, Michael Barton and the poet Nicole Nicholson. There are also contributions from Professor Simon Baron-Cohen (Director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University), clinical psychologist Andrew McDonnell, speech therapist Robert Bell and Delia Barton, Michael's mother.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b064ncly)
Faramerz Dabhoiwala

Faramerz Dabhoiwala, who is Professor of History at Exeter College, Oxford, has proved that what people got up to in the past is a serious and neglected subject of historical enquiry. His book The Origins of Sex explores what he describes as 'the First Sexual Revolution' - a transformation of attitudes to sex which happened in Britain in the 18th century and which gives us the template for how we think about sex today. He argues that during the 18th century older, punitive attitudes to sex began to give way to new ideas of pleasure.

In Private Passions he talks to Michael Berkeley about his upbringing in permissive Amsterdam, and about why discovering his Indian grandparents' love-letters inspired him as a historian. His music choices reflect his love for the 18th century, with Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, and two pieces by Bach: his Double Violin Concerto and the Cantata Wachet Auf. The programme also includes Schubert's Piano Sonata in A Major played by Alfred Brendel, Philip Glass's music for Cocteau's film Beauty and the Beast, and an angry political protest song by Nina Simone which played a key part in the American civil rights movement. He includes, too, an interpretation of 16th-century plainsong by the Norwegian jazz saxophonist Jan Garbarek, a creative interpretation of the past which echoes the excitement he finds in his work as a historian.

Proms Chamber Music 3: Webern, Colin Matthews and Beethoven

Petroc Trelawny presents this year's Proms Chamber Music concerts live from Cadogan Hall. The Apollon Musagète Quartet - former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and eloquent champions of contemporary music - makes its Proms debut, bringing the European premiere of the Fifth Quartet by one of Britain's leading living composers, Colin Matthews - a work commissioned for the 75th anniversary of the Tanglewood Festival. It is paired with Webern's youthful Langsamer Satz, an ecstatic piece that showcases the composer's formal skill within a lyrical idiom. Of Beethoven's six Op. 18 quartets, No. 3 is the lightest, and the hardest to pin down. The scherzo is fleeting, and even the framing movements have an unusual delicacy and wistfulness about them.

Webern: Langsamer Satz

Works by 'metaphysical' poets, such as John Donne, George Herbert and Anne Bradstreet, read by Greta Scacchi and Christopher Eccleston. Music is by composers including Walton, Bernstein and Tavener

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (b051cd5g)
Eric Ravilious: Chalk and Ice

Eric Ravilious is considered one of the best watercolourists of the twentieth century. His art is increasingly familiar: a chalk horse seen through a train window, an engine abandoned in a field, the oddly sinister curve of a hosepipe on a greenhouse floor. 'Eric Ravilious: Chalk and Ice' explores the Essex landscapes that Ravilious loved. The Fry Gallery in Saffron Walden is a treasure-house of his work from ceramics and book illustrations to the sublime watercolours he painted before serving as an Official War Artist in the Arctic Circle where he died in 1942 at the age of only 39. Alexandra Harris explores the life of work of this elusive man and his art with the writers Hermione Lee and Robert Macfarlane, art historians Frances Spalding and Alan Powers, poets Pauline Stainer and Sean O'Brien and the Director of the Fry Gallery David Oelman..

Prom 33 (part 1): John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique

The Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and conductor John Eliot Gardiner perform Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor and Symphonie fantastique by Berlioz.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Andrew McGregor

Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor

8.35 pm INTERVAL

8.55 pm
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
John Eliot Gardiner (conductor)

Sir John Eliot Gardiner's second appearance of the season showcases the work of the conductor's other period-instrument ensemble - the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, specialists in 19th and 20th-century repertoire. Gardiner's brisk and brilliant take on Beethoven's Fifth Symphony promises to find fresh energy within a familiar work - a classical curtain-raiser to Berlioz's extravagant Symphonie fantastique, the height of Romantic excess, with its quasi-cinematic storytelling and vivid, ghoulish soundscapes.

This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 20th August at 2pm.

SUN 22:15 Drama on 3 (b065hgtc)
Faust

Episode 2

by Johann Wolfgang Goethe, translated by John R. Williams, with Samuel West as Faust and Toby Jones as Mephistopheles. Adapted and directed by David Timson, with music composed by Roger Marsh.

Written late in Goethe's life, this second journey into the story of Faust presents a series of episodic scenes in which the poet places his eponymous hero in a variety of surprising circumstances reflecting the predicament of humanity. Funny, reflective and moving, this dramatisation shows why Goethe's Faust had such a massive influence on Western culture.

Musicians: The 24, directed by the composer with Peyee Chen (soprano) Georgina Wells (harp) and Mark Hutchinson (oboe)

Monday - Rob Cowan, plus Sarah Walker with Rick Wakeman

9am
A selection of music including '5 reasons to love... the harpsichord'. Rob explores the range of styles of this characterful instrument, including Spanish flavoured pieces by Soler and Scarlatti, works by Couperin with a sense of nobility, Bach's intricate Fantasia and Fugue and the percussive excitement of a concerto by Henryk Gorecki.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: can you work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

10am
Throughout the week Sarah talks to the musician Rick Wakeman, who shares a selection of his favourite classical music. Rick abandoned his piano studies at the Royal College of Music to pursue a career in rock, both as a solo performer and in the prog-rock group Yes. He has since become a familiar face on television through his appearances in the BBC television series Grumpy Old Men. Rick's music choices range from Bach to Shostakovich, and his conversations with Sarah cover topics including his friendship with the harpsichord maker Thomas Goff, as well as the everyday business of being a rock legend.

10.30am
This week Rob features recordings by BBC Proms artist Dame Evelyn Glennie, one of the UK's best loved solo musicians who celebrates her 50th birthday this summer. Glennie was born in Aberdeenshire, trained at the Royal Academy of Music, and swiftly became the world's most successful virtuoso percussionist. She has recorded over thirty CDs and, as well as commissioning new works, has written percussion pieces of her own to perform. Her range of instruments is huge; from her beloved marimba to ones she's developed herself including the Simtak, made from an old car exhaust pipe.

Mahler's mighty Symphony No. 5 is the climax of this second Prom from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and their chief conductor Donald Runnicles. The work's intense, contrasting moods - the bitter solemnity of the funeral march, the violence of the second movement and the tenderness of the famous Adagietto - make this one of the great orchestral showpieces. The evening opened with the world premiere of a dramatic and bell-haunted Fourth Symphony from Scottish composer James MacMillan, commissioned by BBC Radio 3 and dedicated to this evening's conductor.

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

A Childhood Wasted?

Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the quintessential romantic, Hector Berlioz. A friend of Berlioz remarked that "there has probably never been a famous composer whose childhood was wasted in circumstances less favourable to musical development." Berlioz grew up without any significant musical stimulus in his childhood. His father directed him towards a medical career, and it was only after two years of studying medicine in Paris that Berlioz followed his own desires and, without his parents' moral support, proceeded confidently on his course, which was to be far from easy over the next five years, studying at the Paris Conservatoire.

Prokofiev: Symphony No. 5 in B flat major

Nicola Benedetti (violin)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits (conductor)

A musical snapshot of 1945 - a world emerging from the haze of war into the neon glow of Hollywood and new-found hope. Three contrasting works sum up the spirit of this charged year: Britten's Peter Grimes, reinventing English opera; Prokofiev's Fifth Symphony, striving after the 'grandeur of the human spirit'; and Korngold's Violin Concerto. Hailed in his youth as a 'genius' and a 'miracle' by no lesser figures than Mahler and Puccini respectively, Korngold's reputation still rests mainly on his luscious film music. The Violin Concerto combines his instinct for melody (themes are borrowed from four of his finest film scores) with classical virtuosity and structural elegance. The soloist here is Proms regular Nicola Benedetti, a passionate champion of this unaccountably neglected work.

[This Prom will be repeated on Friday 21st August at 2pm].

The Arts in 1945

Britain's cultural state was born in the rubble and smoke of the Blitz. A new hunger and understanding of what the arts could do for all emerged across the land, promoted by the national government through C.E.M.A. . Along the way ballet, opera & cinema began to forge a distinct voice & emerged in 1945, along with broadcasting, with a new found confidence. Britten's Peter Grimes became the defining moment of cultural rebirth and yet the new Arts Council would struggle to contain both the wartime spirit and direction of C.E.M.A alongside its promotion of the high arts.

In Russia, the conflict between 'good and best' was far more troubling for composers like Prokofiev & Shostakovich. Britain's wartime Soviet ally was now convulsed by Stalin's re-consolidation of power with terrifying new decrees on incorrect art culminating in the 1948 campaign against musical 'formalism' . Brtain's other wartime ally the U.S.A now stepped up its use of culture as a strategic weapon in the unfolding Cold War.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b040hwwj)
The Retreating Roar

The Loss of God

'The Retreating Roar': that is how Matthew Arnold, in his poem 'Dover Beach', described what he saw as the decline of Christianity in this country. In four essays this week, journalist Madeleine Bunting dissects the impact of that decline.

Hers is a more sanguine view than Arnold's. His lament for the loss of religious belief has proved misplaced, she argues; instead, uncertainty and doubt 'can be rich ground for joy, love and light'. However, the poem remains important, having come to symbolise the dramatic loss of faith over the last century.

Each essay looks at one of the ideas which dominated Western culture for 2000 years - salvation, redemption, sin, sacrifice - and are now part of 'the retreating roar', and she asks: what happens to them? Do they disappear, or migrate and translate into new forms? 'The loss of God has been a defining feature of Western democracy, so how does one take stock and reckon with this extraordinary phenomenon in all its ramifications from the most personal issues of meaning and purpose, to the collapse of institutions?'

In other words: what has been lost, what has been gained, and what has taken on a new life?

Nérija, a septet rising from the ranks of the Tomorrow's Warriors scheme, open the party with uplifting grooves and a rich horn-heavy sound, also featuring one-to-watch guitarist Shirley Tetteh. Phaze Theory explore "the vastness of the musical cosmos" in a lineup exploiting amplified tuba and vocals. Leeds-based riffers Cameron Vale mix improvisation and polyrhythms for a set of energetic originals drawing from both jazz and rock worlds. And Ashley Henry brings a contemporary twist to the classic piano trio format, alongside drummer Sam Gardner and bassist Huntly Gordon.

BBC Introducing gives unsigned, undiscovered or under-the-radar bands the chance to upload their music and get it played on BBC radio. The acts featured in this programme were selected to appear at the Manchester Jazz Festival by BBC Radio 3's Jez Nelson and Kevin Le Gendre, and BBC 6 Music's Gilles Peterson.

Elgar's Froissart overture throbs with national pride and swagger, while Walton's Second Symphony sustains an altogether darker, more contemplative mood. British violinist Chloë Hanslip is the soloist in Vaughan Williams's rarely heard Concerto accademico - a work whose lyrical slow movement and dancing finale are anything but 'academic'. The concert also features Welsh composer Grace Williams's ecstatic, neo-Straussian Fairest of Stars for soprano and orchestra, a musical celebration of Milton's poetry.

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

The Romantic Idealist

"My whole life," Berlioz wrote, "has been one long ardent pursuit of an ideal which I created myself." In this programme, Donald Macleod explores the music that resulted from Berlioz's romantic idealism, including his falling in love, precociously, at the age of 12; and later, in what he called "the grand drama of my life," his overwhelming infatuation with the young Irish actress Harriet Smithson, an infatuation which would produce two of his genre-defying works, Symphonie Fantastique and Lélio, or the Return to Life.

TUE 22:00 Sunday Feature (b047gdhl)
Bannockburn Begins

On the eve of the feast of St John the Baptist in the year 1314, the battle of Bannockburn began. 700 years later, Robert Bruce's great victory over Edward II of England is still with us. Ask a medieval historian of the period what Bannockburn achieved and they'll talk about ending the Scottish civil war, forcing those who held lands in both England and Scotland to choose one or the other or saving the Bruce dynasty by allowing Bruce to bargain to get his wife and daughter back from English captivity. Ask any non-historian and they'll most likely tell you that it was the battle that secured Scottish independence. Look down through the ages and you'll find everyone from Stewart court poets to our current Queen (when she unveiled Bruce's statue at Bannockburn in 1964) telling you that it's about freedom. There's a glorious mismatch between historians and history. The battle lives in our imagination - but why and how? Novelist Louise Welsh explores the meaning of Bannockburn - what people fought for on that day in 1314 and why it took on such a life of its own. She's helped on her quest by historians Fiona Watson, Dauvit Broun, Alan Young, Richard Finlay, James Coleman and the National Trust for Scotland Battlefield Visitor Centre Manager Scott McMaster.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b040hyvd)
The Retreating Roar

Sin

Journalist Madeleine Bunting with a series of Essays on the gaps left behind by the decline of religion.

How does a faith decline? What have we lost and what have we gained? Do the central beliefs and ideas of that faith just disappear, continue in a half life, or migrate into new forms? Matthew Arnold, in his poem 'Dover Beach', wrote of 'the melancholy long, withdrawing roar' of the loss of God in this country, and now journalist Madeleine Bunting takes it as a starting point.

Today: Sin. No other idea, it could be argued, has so pre-occupied Christian thinkers and believers than the sinful state of human nature. And they have tended to focus on sin and sexuality rather than on sin and structures: 'The preoccupation with sin was a deeply manipulative and highly effective form of social control. Sin was made personal and individual. Much less attention was given to structural sin, the belief that there is a collective responsibility for social and economic systems which exploit or oppress people'.

So that's gone. But today, in the wake of the decline of Christianity, we seem as persuaded as ever about our fallen state: 'not thin, rich, or beautiful enough, caught in a spiral of self-judgment'. And with no recourse to a meaningful redemption or salvation.

Wednesday - Rob Cowan, plus Sarah Walker with Rick Wakeman

9am
A selection of music including '5 reasons to love... the harpsichord'. Rob explores the range of styles of this characterful instrument, including Spanish flavoured pieces by Soler and Scarlatti, works by Couperin with a sense of nobility, Bach's intricate Fantasia and Fugue and the percussive excitement of a concerto by Henryk Gorecki.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Throughout the week Sarah talks to the musician Rick Wakeman, who shares a selection of his favourite classical music. Rick abandoned his piano studies at the Royal College of Music to pursue a career in rock, both as a solo performer and in the prog-rock group Yes. He has since become a familiar face on television through his appearances in the BBC television series Grumpy Old Men. Rick's music choices range from Bach to Shostakovich, and his conversations with Sarah cover topics including his friendship with the harpsichord maker Thomas Goff, as well as the everyday business of being a rock legend.

10.30am
This week Rob features recordings by BBC Proms artist Dame Evelyn Glennie, one of the UK's best loved solo musicians who celebrates her 50th birthday this summer. Glennie was born in Aberdeenshire, trained at the Royal Academy of Music, and swiftly became the world's most successful virtuoso percussionist. She has recorded over thirty CDs and, as well as commissioning new works, has written percussion pieces of her own to perform. Her range of instruments is huge; from her beloved marimba to ones she's developed herself including the Simtak, made from an old car exhaust pipe.

WED 21:30 Sunday Feature (b04t9715)
The Fundamentalist Queen

Samira Ahmed explores the extraordinary rise and fall of the Lady Protectress Elizabeth, wife of Oliver Cromwell - a commoner who became "queen" in the 1650s.

Elizabeth lived through an extraordinary time - for women as well as men - as the country was divided by a decade of civil war in the 1640s. In the new regime that followed the execution of Charles I, Elizabeth found herself a consort like no other, an ordinary housewife elevated to Lady Protectress.

But the Protectorate, and its efforts to forge a new kind of state power based on strictly Puritan grounds, lasted only a few years. In 1660, the monarchy was restored, Oliver's allies were executed as traitors and his own dead body was dug up and hanged in chains. The widowed Elizabeth, scorned and taunted, was forced to beg Charles II for mercy.

So why is so little known about her? Helped by leading Cromwell scholars and tantalising historical documents - including a satirical cookbook - Samira goes on the trail of the fundamentalist queen, from the church where she married and her kitchen as the young wife of an MP in Ely, to the extravagant gifts that came to her Puritan court and the secrets that may lie within her anonymous grave. With Louise Jameson as the voice of Elizabeth Cromwell.

She has recorded over thirty CDs and, as well as commissioning new works, has written percussion pieces of her own to perform.

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b04sv2wt)
A Cultural History of the Plague

Laura Ashe's documentary discovers how plague has changed our social and cultural landscape. The disease moved west into Europe from China along trade routes in the 1340s, travelling around one mile per day. It killed between one and two thirds of those infected - you could be perfectly healthy in the morning, and dead by late afternoon. 1348 was 'the year the pestilence of men raged in England' and it never really went away until the last great visitation, in 1665.

Laura Ashe visits the site of a plague pit with historian Richard Barnett to discuss the physical marks left by it on our cities; discusses the plague's legacy in folklore with Diane Purkiss at an abandoned 'plague village' in Oxfordshire; visits the British Museum Print Room to examine the Holbein's Dance of Death woodcuts; and explores the cultural legacy of the plague from Daniel Defoe's 'A Journal of the Plague Year' to the current craze for zombie movies.

We hear voices of plague victims and witnesses from across Europe - priests and monks from the fourteenth century; and the plague as it appears in literature from Chaucer, Langland and Boccaccio, to Defoe and Camus. And Laura discusses with virologist John Oxford the ways in which our cultural memories and fears of plague inform our response to contemporary emergences - particularly Ebola. More than three centuries after the last European outbreak, the plague continues to grip our imaginations as firmly as ever.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b040hyvg)
The Retreating Roar

Salvation

In her series of Essays, journalist Madeleine Bunting explores the gaps left behind by the decline of religion. Was Matthew Arnold, in his poem 'Dover Beach', correct to write of 'the melancholy long, withdrawing roar' of the decline of Christianity? Do the central beliefs and ideas of the Faith disappear, continue in a half life, or migrate into new forms?

In this episode: Salvation. Once this meant a mix of divine assistance in the face of dire circumstances, a sense of liberation from the sin which separates you from God, and the promise of being saved from that inevitable human fate: death.

Not much of that about today. Instead, salvation is your own business and people have become salvation tourists, trying out their own version: whether romance or career. Perhaps, says Madeleine, salvation once brought with it an emotional intensity which was often destructive, but its loss has left us with 'no narrative of change around which we can rally, which can generate hope, and in which we can believe with energy and passion'.

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC Philharmonic
Nicholas Collon (conductor)

Mozart's Idomeneo owes its ballet sequence to the influence of French opera, and it launches a programme featuring two Frenchmen who idolised Mozart: Ravel and Messiaen. Ravel's Piano Concerto in G adds a jazzy colouring to its Classical influences, while Oiseaux tristes and La valse contrast the doleful calls of lost forest birds with a dark, swirling portrait of the disintegration of Vienna. The world premiere of a recently rediscovered work by Messiaen - originally intended for the composer's Éclairs sur l'au-delà - brings more birdsong (that of the tui from New Zealand), while Stravinsky's urbane neo-Classical Symphony combines piquancy and elegance.

Die Entführung boasts some of Mozart's most spectacularly virtuosic vocal music, particularly for its brave heroine, Konstanze. Glyndebourne Festival Opera returns for its annual visit to the Proms under Music Director Robin Ticciati, with an international cast led by British soprano Sally Matthews and Lithuanian tenor Edgaras Montvidas. This semi-staged production is sung and spoken in German.

There will be two intervals, at approximately 7.45 pm and 9.15 pm.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b040hyvj)
The Retreating Roar

Patience

No longer a Catholic or a practising Christian, journalist Madeleine Bunting would nonetheless argue that the decline of Christianity in this country has resulted in losses as well as gains. And one of the most 'damaging' is the loss of the importance of Patience.

Matthew Arnold's poem 'Dover Beach', speaking of 'the melancholy long, withdrawing roar' of the Christian faith, remains important, she believes. It has come to symbolise the dramatic loss of faith over the last century, and with it concepts and ideas central to Christianity. Much has been gained, but much has been lost, and sometimes the replacements are not so very different from the originals - but go by a different name.

Patience, Madeleine argues, is the most counter-cultural idea Christianity offers contemporary society, and as such needs to be rediscovered: 'Our lives now are about an addiction to speed; technology promises to take the waiting out of wanting; a consumer culture financed by debt offers instant gratification of every possible desire...'.
