SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b065wmst)
Biber - Missa Salisburgensis

Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber: Missa Salisburgensis
Hesperion XXI, Le Concert des Nations & La Capella Reial de Catalunya, Jordi Savall (director)

Biber's Missa Salisburgensis is probably the largest piece of baroque vocal music, scored for a total of 53 parts including two choruses and six instrumental groups. Yet it is said that the work might never have reached modern ears: the story goes that a 19th-century Austrian shopkeeper came close to using the pages of the sole manuscript copy to wrap vegetables, but was prevented from doing so in the nick of time by a horrified local choirmaster.

Alina Ibragimova (violin)
Apollo's Fire
Jeannette Sorrell (harpsichord / director)

Apollo's Fire - otherwise known as the Cleveland Baroque Orchestra - has been a lively force in early music for over 20 years. Now, under director Jeanette Sorrell, this quirky, energetic band makes its BBC Proms debut in the second of this season's early music Proms Saturday Matinees. The ensemble is joined by violinist Alina Ibragimova, soloist in much-loved concertos by Bach and Vivaldi. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, with its brilliant writing for harpsichord and its bittersweet slow movement, and music from Telemann's vividly colourful suite following the adventures of Cervantes's knight-errant Don Quixote, complete the mix.

This Prom will be repeated Wednesday 19th August at 2pm.

Prom 40 (part 1): Sibelius - Symphonies Nos 1 and 2

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard, live at the BBC Proms, in an all-Sibelius programme.

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

Sibelius: Finlandia
Sibelius: Symphony No. 1 in E minor, Op 39

8.20 pm Interval

8.40 pm
Symphony No. 2 in D major

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard (conductor)

Celebrations for Sibelius's 150th anniversary continue with a complete symphony cycle, launched by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its new Chief Conductor Designate, Thomas Dausgaard. The First Symphony is prefaced by the nationalistic tone-poem Finlandia, its singing central melody composed with an ear to mass appeal as well as to political protest. The First Symphony is no apprentice work; although drawing on the legacy of Tchaikovsky and Brahms, Sibelius created something distinctively and evocatively Nordic. Still more sophisticated is the Second, often heard as a musical shout of grief and rage at Russian oppression.

This Prom will be repeated on Thursday 27th August at 2pm.


SAT 20:15 BBC Proms (b065wv1z)
Proms Extra

Sibelius's Symphonies

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Remembers

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle looks back at his career as a writer and reflects on the methods and reputation of his greatest fictional creation, Mr Sherlock Holmes.

Starting with his humble beginnings as a writer of 'cheap fiction' for a range of Victorian periodicals, Conan Doyle describes his ascent to the status of cult author. These extracts from the author's 1924 autobiography Memories and Adventures also take in his first impressions of fashionable London literary life, including lunch with Oscar Wilde; some memorable interactions with his legions of fans; and his sometimes troubled relationship with Sherlock Holmes himself.

David Arnold & Michael Price Sherlock Suite (from BBC TV's Sherlock)

The Proms salutes a crime-fighting violin virtuoso who wrote a pioneering study of Dutch sacred music, tussled with a contralto from the Warsaw Opera and used Offenbach to outwit a pair of jewel thieves. This Proms matinee celebrates music that conjures up the world of Sherlock Holmes: works by Paganini, Lassus and Wagner which Conan Doyle tells us Holmes loved, and the film and TV scores written for him - from Miklós Rózsa's The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes to David Arnold and Michael Price's music from the BBC's Sherlock series starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Special guests include Sherlock co-creator Mark Gatiss; mezzo-soprano Christine Rice, who explores the repertoire of Holmes's nemesis, the opera singer Irene Adler; and violinist Jack Liebeck representing the super sleuth himself .

Beginning on the Cornish cliffs with Henry Alford, through Devon with Sir Henry Baskerville on Dartmoor, to Somerset where secret agent Jim Prideaux is lying low in Taunton. John Betjeman's bells in Bristol, across the Severn Bridge into Monmouth, and more bells in Ledbury described by Wordsworth. A recipe from Shrewsbury, witches in Lancashire, and a composer searching for inspiration in the Lake District. Across the border into Scotland and a fugitive hiding in Galloway, old photographs from Glasgow, a fair maid in Perth and a lovely lass in Inverness. Excerpts are read by Claudie Blakley and Greg Wise.

The Proms Sibelius symphony cycle continues with the concise, intricately wrought Third and the darker Fourth - once described by conductor Herbert Blomstedt as 'an essay in trying to be happy which fails - on purpose'. These are paired with the composer's popular Violin Concerto with Lithuanian soloist Julian Rachlin. Conductor Ilan Volkov is a passionate champion of today's composers and here premieres a new 'fantasy-portrait' of Sibelius by Michael Finnissy - a composer whose increasingly direct musical voice draws particular connections to politics, society and culture.

The Summer House

In Norway you'd call it a sommerhus, in Finland a mokki, in Russia a dacha and in Sweden a stuga. In English there is no adequate word for these havens in the forests and by the water where our northern neighbours withdraw for the summer.

Kate Clanchy, who has spent time in mokkis and stugas, reveals how these are not mere second homes for the wealthy - most people have access to one. Nor are they places of total relaxation: there are logs to be chopped, potatoes to be grown and mushrooms and berries to be gathered. The summer house is where people reconnect with the land, with nature, with each other and themselves.

She contemplates the atmosphere and the light, and the way this imbues so much of the music and writing we love, the work of Grieg, Sibelius, Chekhov, Nabokov and Tove Jansson, author of 'The Summer Book'.

Monday - Sarah Walker with Sian Phillips

9am
A selection of music including '5 reasons to love... Les Six'. Sarah takes a trip back to Paris during the Roaring Twenties as she presents her reasons to love this eccentric group of French composers. Les Six was made up of Milhaud, Poulenc, Honegger, Auric, Durey and Tailleferre. Throughout the week Sarah explores their avant-garde style, including the way they inject a sense of humour and a shock factor into their music, and showcases their collaborative efforts.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge and identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the actress Siân Phillips. Siân started performing when she was just eleven years old and has enjoyed an acting career across stage and screen that has spanned over seventy years. Her film credits include Becket, Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Dune, though she is perhaps best known for her BAFTA-winning portrayal of Livia in the television series I, Claudius. Primarily a stage actress, Siân has also taken on singing roles including her one-woman show Marlene and Olivier Award-nominated performances in Pal Joey, A Little Night Music and Cabaret. Siân will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music with Sarah, every day at 10am.

10.30am
This week Sarah's featured Proms artist is the pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim. Sarah focuses on Barenboim's pianistic side, with repertoire including Beethoven's 'Moonlight' Sonata, Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Three Nocturnes Op. 9 by Chopin. She also puts the spotlight on his collaborations with other artists including Beethoven's Piano Trio, Op. 1 No. 3 in C minor alongside Pinchas Zukerman and Jacqueline du Pré and Mozart's Sonata in D major for 2 Pianos, K448, where Barenboim joins forces with Martha Argerich.

Prom 31: National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

Afternoon on 3 - with Penny Gore.

Another chance to hear Sir Mark Elder conducting the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain in Mahler's 9th Symphony and the London premiere of Tansy Davies's Re-greening, which was composed as a complement to the Mahler.

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

2pm:
Tansy Davies: Re-greening (London premiere)

2.10pm:
Mahler: Symphony No.9

National 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.

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

MON 18:30 Composer of the Week (b065x43d)
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

A Fragile Boy

A career in music seems a distant dream for the young civil servant. Presented by Donadl Macleod.

A sensitive, emotionally fragile boy, Tchaikovsky was sent to a boarding school where life was harsh. After leaving school, he became a government clerk in the Ministry of Justice. His disillusionment at work though eventually led to him studying music in night classes at the St Petersburg conservatoire, even though a professional career in music was rare in Russia. His studies eventually took over as his full-time occupation, and the evolution of one the greatest composers of all had started.

In the late 19th century, a number of Russian musicians were attempting to turn the tide of Western European influence, and create a new, distinctively Russian, style of music. Tchaikovsky managed to embrace both traditions. A lover of folk music, his early compositions were often inspired by national tunes. His First String Quartet was a stunning success - the second movement was an instant hit all over Europe.

Osmo Vänskä (conductor)

Who better to bring this year's cycle of Sibelius symphonies to a close than fellow countryman Osmo Vänskä, with one exceptional cycle already completed on disc and another currently under way. 'These symphonies of mine are more confessions of faith than are my other works,' wrote Sibelius, but the later symphonies were hard-won confessions in which the composer's creativity struggled with self-doubt and hostile critics. The results, however, are exceptional, from the soaring horn-led 'swan hymn' of the Fifth to the innocent beauty of the Sixth and the single-movement Seventh, with its total symphonic unity and an ending that has been called 'the grandest celebration of C major there ever was'.

Food at the 2014 Emulsion Festival

Jez Nelson presents Food - saxophonist Iain Ballamy and drummer Thomas Strønen in concert at the 2014 Emulsion Festival.

In a partnership spanning 16 years, Food have developed a sound that marries acoustic and electronic approaches with detail and lyricism. Using saxophone, bells, blocks and gongs the pair conjure shifting improvisations that move from ethereal minimalism to turbulent rhythmic climaxes with propulsive drums and live sampling adding additional layers. Their music has drawn a following from both the jazz and folk worlds - a reputation cemented in recent years by two brilliant records for the ECM label.

Here in concert at London's Village Underground, Ballamy and Strønen explore their unique sound in a flowing, non-stop set.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Sian Phillips

9am
A selection of music including '5 reasons to love... Les Six'. Sarah takes a trip back to Paris during the Roaring Twenties as she presents her reasons to love this eccentric group of French composers. Les Six was made up of Milhaud, Poulenc, Honegger, Auric, Durey and Tailleferre. Throughout the week Sarah explores their avant-garde style, including the way they inject a sense of humour and a shock factor into their music, and showcases their collaborative efforts.

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the actress Siân Phillips. Siân started performing when she was just eleven years old and has enjoyed an acting career across stage and screen that has spanned over seventy years. Her film credits include Becket, Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Dune, though she is perhaps best known for her BAFTA-winning portrayal of Livia in the television series I, Claudius. Primarily a stage actress, Siân has also taken on singing roles including her one-woman show Marlene and Olivier Award-nominated performances in Pal Joey, A Little Night Music and Cabaret. Siân will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music with Sarah, every day at 10am.

10.30am
This week Sarah's featured Proms artist is the pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim. Sarah focuses on Barenboim's pianistic side, with repertoire including Beethoven's 'Moonlight' Sonata, Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 2 and Three Nocturnes Op. 9 by Chopin. She also puts the spotlight on his collaborations with other artists including Beethoven's Piano Trio, Op. 1 No. 3 in C minor alongside Pinchas Zukerman and Jacqueline du Pré and Mozart's Sonata in D major for 2 Pianos, K448, where Barenboim joins forces with Martha Argerich.

TUE 18:30 Composer of the Week (b065xgvn)
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

Three Women

Donald Macleod looks at some of the most significant female relationships in the composer's life.

Homosexuallity was technically illegal in 19th century Russia, and certainly frowned upon. Perhaps that's why Tchaikovsky felt compelled to marry, much to the horror of his closest friends and family. The marriage was a disaster, leading to terrible consequences for both sides. Around the same time, Tchaikovsky was developing a highly unusual relationship with another woman - an admirer of his music. This rich widow became his benefactor and occasional counsellor; a significant presence in his life almost until his death.

There's a second chance to hear this Prom on Tuesday 1 September at 2pm.

Daniel Barenboim returns to the Proms, this time as both conductor and soloist, taking the piano part in Beethoven's Triple Concerto. Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony startled audiences with its ruthless concision - a reaction against the excesses of the late-Romantics. But excess gets the last word, in Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony, the musical expression of some of its composer's most troubled and heartfelt emotions.


TUE 20:35 BBC Proms (b0670yls)
Proms Interval

Goethe and the West-Eastern Divan

To complement this concert by the West-Eastern Divan orchestra, Paul Farley explores Goethe's poetic sequence, The West-Eastern Divan, from which Daniel Barenboim's orchestra takes its name.

In his later years, the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe was new-fired by his reading of eastern poetry - particularly the work of the Persian poet Hafiz. Goethe's life-affirming and sensual poetic cycle, The West-Eastern Divan (1814-18) is essentially a love poem to Hafiz.

Paul Farley explores Goethe's fascination with Arabic literature, and his admiration for Hafiz, whom he admired as both a hedonist and an enemy of dogmatic orthodoxy. The Divan is also, more poignantly, a way of mapping Goethe's own love affair with a young married woman, Marianne von Willemer - the real subject of the many sensual 'Suleika' poems.

Paul examines Goethe's role as a champion of eastern literature in the west and talks to poets and historians about the lasting legacy of the ideas that inform The West-Eastern Divan.

Produced by Emma Harding.

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

WEDNESDAY 19 AUGUST 2015

WED 00:00 The Essay (b03ncnfc)
Cities on the Brink

Berlin

Stepping back in time, three BBC News correspondents present their personal perspectives on the capital cities of the major European powers that fought the Great War.

The first programme explores the epicentre of turmoil as the conflagration took hold: Berlin, the capital of Kaiser Wilhelm II's empire. Stephen Evans reminds us that the German capital on the eve of war was the world's most innovative technological centre. Einstein was here, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics from 1914. Mark Twain called Berlin the "German Chicago" because of its dizzying sense of modernity and progress. Immigrants were sucked in by industry. In 1895, 20,000 Berliners worked in the factories being built on the outskirts of the city, living cheek-by-jowl in new blocks which became known as "rental barracks".

But all this industrial energy and the wealth it created - which we still associate with today's Germany - came at a price. Both male and female workers felt alienated in their work, likening themselves to machines. As women grew in importance to the economy, so did the loudness of the criticism of their alleged neglect of traditional home virtues. The image of Germany united in war that was to be orchestrated later in the year was already belied by the reality of daily life in the capital itself.

Producer Simon Coates.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

A Private Life in Turmoil

Whilst Tchaikovsky's reputation was growing, his personal life was becoming intolerable.

Tchaikovsky was stuck in a marriage that was founded on a huge misunderstanding. He was gay and had thought that the union was a mutually agreeable arrangement. However, his wife did not understand at all, and remained under the delusion that Tchaikovsky loved her. His struggles with their hopeless relationship drove both to unbearable mental anquish.
Whilst all this was going on Tchaikovsky was fêted in Russia, composing his 1812 overture and his ballet Swan Lake. He was now in a position to stop teaching at the conservatoire and make his living composing full-time.

Shostakovich's 15th Symphony is an altogether darker affair - intimate and introspective.

2014 Festival

Animals: Watching Us Watching Them Watching Each Other

50 years ago Jane Goodall got into trouble for suggesting chimps displayed personalities and moods. " Foul! " cried scientists, "that's Anthropomorphism!" Today, the fact that animals recognise individuals within their group, choose whom to copy, and whom to learn from - and that their populations have distinct social traditions and behaviours - suggests that culture is not an exclusively human attribute.

Rana Mitter talks to the primatologist, Andrew Whiten, Professor of Evolutionary and Development Psychology at St Andrews, to Dr Katie Slocombe of York University and to the social anthropologist, Professor Alex Bentley of Bristol University, about chimps and imitation, culture and evolution - from the deep past to our digital present.

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

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

Her film credits include Becket, Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Dune, though she is perhaps best known for her BAFTA-winning portrayal of Livia in the television series I, Claudius. Primarily a stage actress, Siân has also taken on singing roles including her one-woman show Marlene and Olivier Award-nominated performances in Pal Joey, A Little Night Music and Cabaret.

Afternoon on 3 - with Penny Gore.

Another chance to hear Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique performing Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique.

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

2pm:
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor

Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

Orchestre Revolutionnaire 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 Revolutionnaire 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.

[First heard on 9th August]

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

Russia's Musical Hero

Despite intense personal difficulties, Tchaikovsky becomes Russia's most fêted composer. Presented by Donald Macleod.

The disastrous marriage Tchaikovsky had entered into still cast a long shadow. His estranged wife had become pregnant by another man and dumped the child in an orphanage. Even though he could now divorce her easily Tchaikovsky still did not trust her not to make his homosexuality public.

There was more angst and heartache. His long-standing servant, with whom he had become deeply attached, was conscripted into the army, leaving Tchaikovsky bereft. Later his teacher and life-long friend Rubinstein died and then Tchaikovsky's sister became addicted to morphine.

Whilst his personal life remained turbulent, Tchaikovsky's musical career continued its trajectory. The new Tsar invited Tchaikovsky to write his coronation music, confirming him as Russia's pre-eminent composer.

Choristers of Winchester Cathedral
Danish National Concert Choir
Danish National Symphony Orchestra
Fabio Luisi (conductor)

The BBC Proms celebration of Nielsen's 150th anniversary continues, with a performance of the Second Symphony by his compatriots from the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. Subtitled 'The Four Temperaments', the symphony is an arc of contrasting moods and textures - the 'Temperaments' of the subtitle are the four 'Humours' of Greco-Roman medicine; the building blocks of emotional and physical well-being: Choleric, Phlegmatic, Melancholic and Sanguine.
Nielsen's choral works are less often performed. Tonight's Prom offers the chance to experience the luminescent beauty of Hymnus amoris, inspired by a Titian painting, and the Three Motets that pay homage to Renaissance polyphony.
And in the concert's first half, Danish-Israeli violinist Nikolaj Znaider performs the ever-popular Brahms Violin Concerto, with its warmly romantic central movement and dizzying, gypsy dance-inspired finale.

This prom will be repeated on Friday 4th September at 2pm.

Afternoon on 3 - with Penny Gore.

Another chance to hear the violinist Nicola Benedetti with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra conducted by Kirill Karabits in Korngold's Violin Concerto. Plus music by Britten and Prokofiev's Symphony No.5. Presented from the Royal Albert Hall by Martin Handley.

2pm
Britten: Four Sea Interludes from 'Peter Grimes'

2.20pm:
Korngold: Violin Concerto

2.45pm:
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.

[First heard on 10th August]

FRI 18:00 Composer of the Week (b065xhpg)
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

A Legendary Death

Donald Macleod looks at Tchaikovsky last years and the fantastical rumours and theories surrounding his demise.

In his latter years Tchaikovsky was a living legend, accepted as one of the greatest musicians on the planet. The Tsar had awarded Tchaikovsky an annual allowance making life very comfortable and rewarding for him.

The unrest of his private life, in previous years, had largely settled but he was thrown by the abrupt ending of his friendship with his benefactor. The relationship, which was conducted through letters only, was ended by her with little explanation - this was something that troubled Tchaikovsky endlessly.

Compositions still flowed from him, producing what became some of the world's favourite music. Tchaikovsky travelled across Europe and to America to conduct and receive awards.

His funeral was a huge occasion in Moscow. As time passed, conjecture about the facts behind Tchaikovsky's death grew and grew to colossal proportions.

8.05 pm
Anders Hillborg: Beast Sampler (UK premiere)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A major

Stephen Farr (organ)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

There's no denying the potent rhythmic urgency of Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. Its giddying, propulsive movement finds contrast in the mysterious stillness of Sibelius's Tapiola, inspired by the spirit of Finland's dusky forests, its wood-sprites and magic secrets. Jón Leifs's Organ Concerto harnesses the full power and scope of the Royal Albert Hall's organ in its massive musical gestures, while Anders Hillborg's Beast Sampler promises to strip away all we know of the symphony orchestra, transforming it into a 'sound animal'.

This Prom will be repeated on Sunday 6th September at 4pm.

Some Versions of Pastoral

A new story by DJ Taylor, from his 2015 collection Wrote For Luck.

The Underwoods are proud of their illustrious associations with the intellectual world of the early 20th Century. Yet when their younger friends, under some duress, pay a visit to the Underwoods' Suffolk garden, the fragility of their world becomes painfully apparent.

2014 Festival

Imagining Turkey: Elif Shafak in Conversation

Turkey's best selling female writer, Elif Shafak, has been published in more than 40 countries. Her books, including The Forty Rules of Love, The Bastard of Istanbul and Black Milk - her memoir of motherhood and depression, reflect her interest in building connections between Western and Eastern traditions. Her cosmopolitan voice is of particular importance in a year when the Middle East has been undergoing enormous shifts, and both nationalism and xenophobia are on the rise around the world.

She talks to Anne McElvoy about imagination and storytelling as she publishes her new novel The Architect's Apprentice.

The conversation was recorded in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of Ideas at Sage Gateshead in 2014

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

Prom 48: Late-Night Bach

The BBC Singers, the Academy of Ancient Music and David Hill, live at the BBC Proms

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Martin Handley

Bach: Mass in G minor (BWV 235)
Bach: Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in F major (BWV 1047)
Bach: Magnificat in D major (BWV 243)

Sophie Bevan (soprano)
Rebecca Evans (soprano)
Iestyn Davies (countertenor)
Nicky Spence (tenor)
Roderick Williams (baritone)
BBC Singers
Academy of Ancient Music
David Hill (conductor)

Bach's much-loved Magnificat, bright with fanfares and lively with dance rhythms, is paired with the composer's Mass in G minor in this Late Night Prom by the BBC Singers and the Academy of Ancient Music. Though sometimes overlooked, Bach's Lutheran Masses are a treasure-trove of melody, borrowing their themes from the best of Bach's own cantatas. Completing the programme is the Brandenburg Concerto No. 2, with its muscular textures and brilliant brass and wind colours.

This Prom will be repeated on Wednesday 26th August at 2pm.
