SATURDAY 26 SEPTEMBER 2015

SAT 00:00 Through the Night (b06cb8q0)
To the Makers of Music - All Worlds, All Times

When NASA launched the two Voyager spacecraft in 1977, set incongruously among the on-board scientific instruments was the Golden Record, a sort of cultural handshake from humankind (or at least a NASA-approved version of it). The disc was optimistically intended for any passing alien to set up and play in order to hear a representative selection of the world's sounds and music. Hand-etched on its surface were the words 'To the makers of music - all worlds, all times'.

This un-presented sequence is made up from the music and sounds on the Golden Record, from Bach to Chuck Berry, Stravinsky to Australian aboriginal song; from erupting volcanoes and a small selection of the world's fauna to heavy industrial machinery and trains, planes and automobiles. Not to mention greetings in fifty-five languages and a personal 'hello' from 1977 UN Secretary General, Kurt Waldheim.

'To the Makers of Music - All Worlds, All Times' is a chance to imagine yourself as an alien in a distant galaxy in whose back garden a Voyager spacecraft has landed. Somehow, you've been able to follow the instructions which come with the Golden Record and, luckily, your auditory sense and your planet's atmosphere enable you to hear what's on it. Are you any the wiser about planet earth and its inhabitants? Or perhaps just a little perplexed? Is it time to get back to the gardening, plan an invasion or extend the hand (tentacle) of friendship? You decide.

SAT 09:00 The Listening Brain (b06dd18p)
Live from the Radio 3 pop-up studio at Wellcome Collection, Andrew McGregor is joined by musicians and experts including the pianist Anna Tillbrook and Professor Lawrence Parsons, one of the world's leading experts on how musical skills are linked to and enhance other brain functions, to find out the benefits of listening to and performing music. Plus, from the results of his own brain scan conducted by Professor Sophie Scott and Dr Saloni Krishnan at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, Andrew explores how and why the brain responds to music, and how musical experience shapes the brain. Does mastering the complex skill of expert instrumental performance effect the way the brain responds to sound, and which regions of the brain will show these expertise responses? Sophie joins us live to discuss the results.


SAT 10:30 Shaping the Brain (b06b4qly)
Live from the Henry Wellcome Auditorium at Wellcome Collection, Claudia Hammond finds out about the ways in which music can influence - even mould - the brain from a neurological and social perspective, to discover how our musical tastes, education and preferences shape more than just our social lives.

Ever since the idea of the "Mozart Effect" was first reported in the early 90s, researchers around the world have sought to find out whether listening to music can have effects on our other cognitive faculties, including IQ. The results, whilst modest, are not to be ignored. Music, in particular performing music and playing instruments, does affect the working of the young and adult brain. And this shapes lives.

But how best to interest young people in music? Claudia Hammond is joined by Professor David Hargreaves , Cognitive Neuroscientist Catherine Loveday, and Lucy Green, Professor of Musical Education at the Institute of Education.


SAT 11:30 Playing with Patterns (b06b8c23)

Daniel Penney (b. 1999) began learning music through the Kodály Method and took classical guitar lessons from the age of 5 in Dublin. He received a Rolling Stones scholarship to study classical guitar at the Yehudi Menuhin School when he was 9 years old and has embraced composition as part of his studies since then.

Finlay Stafford (b. 1998) is a musician and multi-instrumentalist. He has been playing drums since the age of 5, and is interested in music across genres and time periods; from an early love affair with The Beatles to a continuing interest in jazz and modern psychedelia.

Toby Hession(b. 1997) is from Peterborough, where he sang as a chorister in the Cathedral Choir and studied piano and composition at Chetham's School of Music. He has had works performed at Peterborough Cathedral and the Royal Northern College of Music and, in 2013, he was commissioned to compose a piece for the Commonwealth Observance Day in Westminster Abbey.



SUNDAY 27 SEPTEMBER 2015

SUN 00:00 Max Richter's Sleep (b06db5tv)
Part of Slow And Mindful, BBC Radio 3’s offering of music for the mind in the time of lockdown, Max Richter’s eight-hour epic Sleep, his 'lullaby for a frenetic world', returns home to the station’s airwaves with a simulcast with the European Broadcasting Union - uniting quarantined nations across the continent in a search for sleep and moments of meditative stillness.

This was the world premiere performance, a live Radio 3 broadcast in September 2015 – since then, the piece has been staged across the globe, with landmark concerts in Paris, Los Angeles and Sydney. The album of Sleep has recently returned to number one in the USA Billboard classical album charts – which Billboard attributes to ‘consumers in coronavirus quarantine at home, seeking out peaceful music’.

On the night of Saturday 26th September 2015, in the Reading Room of the Wellcome Collection in London, Max Richter on piano and electronics was joined by soprano Grace Davidson plus five string players, and an audience who were encouraged to lie on beds and sleep through the performance. The work seeks to examine the relationship between music and the subconscious mind: instead of giving the music full concentration, listeners are encouraged to experience it in a state of sleep. The piece indeed provides an apt soundtrack for these times of lockdown – when hours seemingly stretch into the distance. Sleep offers a mindful way to forget everything going on around us and to enter another world.

Max Richter says of the piece in today's context: "Five years ago I wrote SLEEP as an invitation to pause our busy lives for a moment. Now we are all facing an unexpected and involuntary pause. It is far from easy to adjust to this new normal, which shifts continuously, and brings anxiety and suffering to those we love and to ourselves. At such times the magical ability of creativity to elevate our days and to connect us is more important than ever, and I’m really happy that the EBU allows us to listen all together across the whole of Europe. Please enjoy this eight-hour place to rest.”

Radio 3's 8-hour live broadcast broke two Guinness World Records - for the longest broadcast of a single piece of music, and the longest live broadcast of a single piece of music.

SUN 09:00 Feeling Music (b06db6tv)
'What passion cannot Music raise and quell?' asked the 17th-century poet John Dryden in his Ode to Saint Cecilia. Down the ages, music's unique ability to stir our emotions has frequently been acknowledged. Live from Radio 3's pop-up studio at Wellcome Collection café, Sarah Walker finds out how and why it moves us with the help of two internationally known authorities on the psychology of music, John Sloboda and Aaron Williamon.

SUN 13:00 Private Passions (b06db6tx)
Why Music? Weekend: Frank Wilczek

As part of Radio 3's Why Music? weekend, Michael Berkeley talks to the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Frank Wilczek. Frank Wilczek was brought up in Queens, New York, the son of a radio repairman. By the time he was a teenager it was clear that he was a mathematical prodigy. By the time he was 21, he was doing the ground-breaking research which won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2004. He's currently Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and he has a great mission to explain his work to a general public. He's intrigued by questions which have as much to do with philosophy as mathematics; his latest book explores beauty, including the beauty of art and music. Why are we so drawn to harmony? Is there in fact a 'music of the spheres' all around us, which we're not able to hear but which particle physics can detect?
In Private Passions, Professor Wilczek talks to Michael Berkeley about the 'deep geometry' of the world, and how this beautiful symmetry is revealed in music. He describes vividly the excitement of the scientific research which brought him the Nobel Prize: sleepless nights, skipped meals, too many cigarettes - and then the ideas which came to him while he was lying in the bathtub. A true Eureka! moment.
Frank Wilczek is a keen piano player and accordionist, and plays drums in a rock band. His music choices include Bach, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Queen, and Gilbert and Sullivan's opera - for which he has written some alternative comical lyrics celebrating the Hadron Collider.


SUN 14:00 The Singing Ape (b06db7ht)
Live from the Wellcome Collection café, Tom Service probes the latest theories about the origins of music-making and its relationship with human evolutionary development. Was there music before language? Has music helped shape the human brain? Is music just "auditory cheesecake"? To help answer these and many other questions, Tom is joined by Philip Ball, author of The Music Instinct, and one of the pioneers of cognitive archaeology, Steven Mithen. With additional contributions from experts in the field including Ellen Dissanayake and Andrea Ravignani.


SUN 16:00 Sounds of Nature (b06b80py)
Chris Watson, composer and celebrated wildlife sound recordist, uses his both his own field recordings and commercially recorded music to demonstrate connections between the sounds of the natural word and human music-making. Presented live from Wellcome Collection's Henry Wellcome Auditorium by Andrew McGregor in conversation with Chris Watson and first broadcast during Radio 3's "Why Music?" weekend in September 2015.


SUN 17:00 The Descent of Language (b06b8q6y)
According to Darwin, the origins of verbal communication lay in a musical 'protolanguage', in which speech and song were one. The Descent of Language is a playful exploration of this ancestry, and the unexpected ways it is revealed in everyday experience. Performed live in Wellcome Collection's Reading Room by vocal ensemble The Clerks, and including audience participation, the programme features new works by Christopher Fox and Edward Wickham alongside music and sounds both exotic and commonplace; a sequence embracing madrigals and 'motherese', football chants and fa-la-las, in a unique celebration of that intrinsically human instinct - to sing. Presented by Sarah Walker, with contributions from evolutionary expert Ian Cross and Edward Wickham.


SUN 18:30 Why Music? Round-Up (b06b80q9)
Tom Service and Sarah Walker, together with Why Music? resident experts Victoria Williamson and Philip Ball, look back over the weekend's highlights and discoveries.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b01hq27w)
Chicken Soup with Barley

A chance to hear a transfer to radio of The Royal Court Theatre's acclaimed 2011 production of Arnold Wesker's landmark play from 1958 that captures the collapse of an ideology, alongside the disintegration of a family.

This is one of the plays that made Arnold Wesker a leading voice of 1960s "kitchen sink" British drama.

The kettle boils in 1936 as the fascists are marching. Tea is brewed in 1946, with disillusion in the air at the end of the war. Twenty years on in 1956, as rumours spread of Hungarian revolution, the cup is empty.

Sarah Kahn, an East End Jewish mother, is a feisty political fighter and a staunch communist. Battling against the State and her shirking husband she desperately tries to keep her family together.

This landmark state-of-the-nation play is a panoramic drama portraying the age-old battle between realism and idealism.

Chicken Soup with Barley is a Royal Court Theatre production and was directed for the stage in 2011 by Dominic Cooke, and for radio by Simon Godwin, and produced for BBC Radio 3 by Catherine Bailey.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Nitin Sawhney

9am
Rob presents '5 reasons to love... Bach organ works'. Throughout the week Rob puts Bach's organ works centre stage, showcasing their complexity, and the virtuosity required to perform them. He highlights their flashes of humour, as well as their gravitas and sheer power, plus the way Bach often reinvented pre-existing works. Rob hand-picks recordings by organists including Helmut Walcha, Simon Preston and Ton Koopman.

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is Nitin Sawhney. A composer, producer, songwriter, DJ and multi-instrumentalist, Nitin is one of the BBC's Ambassadors for the new Ten Pieces project. His musical credentials include collaboration with artists from Sir Paul McCartney to the London Symphony Orchestra. As a child Nitin trained as a classical pianist, moving on to classical and flamenco guitar and learning to play sitar and tabla. He has since toured the world with his band, and recorded nine studio albums, winning accolades for his amalgamation of styles including jazz, flamenco, electronica and classical Indian ragas. He has composed for theatre, film, television and video games with credits including writing the BAFTA-winning soundtrack for The Human Planet, scoring ad campaigns for brands such as Yves Saint Laurent and Nike and writing a new score for Alfred Hitchcock's The Lodger. Nitin will be sharing a selection of his favourite classical music with Rob, every day at 10am.

10.30am Ten Pieces
The BBC has just launched the new Ten Pieces for secondary schools, opening up the world of classical music to children and inspiring them to respond creatively to what they hear. As part of Radio 3's Ten pieces season, Rob recommends music that complements this exciting selection of works.

A musician who wears his considerable virtuosity lightly, Isserlis has received worldwide acclaim for his technique, musicianship and command of the instrument. Throughout the week Rob presents recordings by Isserlis including an elegant interpretation of Haydn's Cello Concerto No.1, a lyrical performance of Grieg's Cello Sonata and a rendition of Prokofiev's Cello Concerto that captures the bittersweet language of the work.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06dbdk1)
Johann Baptist Vanhal (1739-1813)

A Forgotten Master

Donald Macleod introduces a musician and composer whose prodigious gifts took him from rural Bohemia to the very top of the musical world in 18th-century Vienna, where he was celebrated alongside Haydn and Mozart, his occasional quartet partners.

Vanhal's story has all the ingredients for a great musical drama: escape from bondage, early success dashed by sudden personal crisis, and a remarkable re-birth won through faith, talent and strength of character. This week, Donald Macleod explores how Vanhal became one of the most celebrated musicians of his age and reveals how his music, despite falling into relative obscurity, has lost none of its shine.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b06dbdk3)
Wigmore Hall Mondays: Anthony Marwood, Lawrence Power, Simon Crawford-Phillips

Sarah Walker presents a programme of chamber music for violin, viola and piano, live from Wigmore Hall, performed by Anthony Marwood (violin), Lawrence Power (viola) and Simon Crawford-Phillips (piano).

Rebecca Clarke's "Dumka" was written in 1940 but only recently published - a deeply felt piece which quotes from Brahms. Martinu's "Three Madrigals" date from 1947 and take their inspiration from Bohemian-Moravian folk music and also the rhythms of the English madrigal style which Martinu loved. And finally, Brahms's Trio in E flat major of 1865 was originally composed for natural horn, violin and piano, but the composer provided an alternative version in which the viola takes the place of the horn.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b06dc5pr)
About Average

On the Average

Novelist and critic Ian Sansom believes that the idea of the average is one of the key terms and principles of the modern age, encompassing human productivity, relationships, politics and art. So, how did average become a byword for mediocrity?

'Average Is Over' proclaims the title of one recent best-selling book about economics. 'Start: Punch Fear In the Face, Escape Average And Do Work That Matters' suggests the title of another. 'Conquering Average'. 'Mastering Average'. 'Overcoming Average'. This has become the mantra of our times.

In the opening essay of this series of investigations into the average, Sansom takes a sideways look at the history and meaning of the ordinary and the everyday and discovers what it means to be the opposite of 'awesome'.

Producer: Stan Ferguson.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b06dc689)
Missing Bits: Barry Guy

Jez Nelson delves into the Jazz on 3 archives to present previously unheard tracks by British bassist and composer Barry Guy and his twelve-piece New Orchestra, recorded at London's Café Oto in May 2014.

Known for his adventurous and demanding writing, Guy's music is highly scored, yet unpredictable in nature. This set features delicate arrangements designed to showcase baroque violinist Maya Homburger along with unusual instrumental techniques, sudden changes of texture and inspiring, freely-improvised contributions from saxophonist Evan Parker and pianist Agusti Fernandez.

Throughout the show, Jez is joined in the studio by jazz writer Kevin Le Gendre for a round-up of the best new releases, including albums by Brad Mehldau and Sons of Kemet.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.

Johann Baptist Vanhal (1739-1813)

Out of Bondage

Donald Macleod traces the young composer's journey from common serf to the most fashionable salons of Vienna

Vanhal's story has all the ingredients for a great musical drama: escape from bondage, early success dashed by sudden personal crisis, and a remarkable re-birth won through faith, talent and strength of character. This week, Donald Macleod relates the colourful story of one of the 18th century's leading musical lights.

Vanhal's family were peasants; in effect, legal slaves on the vast Bohemian estates of Count Schaffgotsch. Music offered an escape and Vanhal took every opportunity to better his position - from choir boy, to church organist, and on to Vienna, where rich aristocrats vied to patronise the brilliant young composer.

Donald Runnicles, conductor

It was the artistic equivalent of the raising of the Titanic. When musicologist Deryck Cooke completed Mahler's unfinished final symphony, he uncovered a lost masterpiece filled with puzzles and allusions; a work where cries of love and cries of pain finally resolve in music of shattering honesty and heart-breaking beauty. This is music that explores the great questions of life; and as Donald Runnicles guides us to the heart of Mahler's final musical testament, there's no more powerful way to open our new season. The songful violin concerto by "Russian Mendelssohn" Alexander Glazunov forms the brightest of contrasts, and with the glorious tone of James Ehnes, it'll sparkle like new.

About Average

Small, Medium and Large

Novelist and critic Ian Sansom believes that the idea of the average is one of the key terms and principles of the modern age, encompassing human productivity, relationships, politics and art. So, how did average become a byword for mediocrity?

In the second essay of the series, he uncovers the unlikely history of the scientific measurement of the dimensions of the average man and woman. We learn that our ever-changing dimensions matter - size matters - for all sorts of obvious reasons, not least because average sizes literally determine the shape of the world we all live in: the height of our tables and chairs, the shape of our clothes, our cars, our phones - and of course our coffins. We all live and die according to the average.

Johann Baptist Vanhal (1739-1813)

Turning Point

Vanhal secures an all-expenses paid trip to Italy but, after lingering there for two years, perhaps all is not as well as it seems.

Vanhal's story has all the ingredients for a great musical drama: escape from bondage, early success dashed by sudden personal crisis, and a remarkable re-birth won through faith, talent and strength of character. This week, Donald Macleod relates the colourful story of one of the 18th century's leading musical lights.

Having won the support of one of Vienna's wealthy aristocratic patrons, Vanhal heads off to complete his musical education abroad, with 2000 florins in his wallet and an letters of introduction to every major city in Italy. Back home, a plum job is waiting for him in the household of his benefactor. So why then does Vanhal seem reluctant to take up his dream appointment?

Producer: Luke Mulhall.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b06dcswx)
About Average

Working 9 to 5

Novelist and critic Ian Sansom believes that the idea of the average is one of the key terms and principles of the modern age, encompassing human productivity, relationships, politics and art. So, how did average become a byword for mediocrity?

In the third essay of the series, he explores the changing concept of the average working week in an age of zero hours contracts. Is the idea of an average working week now as redundant and old-fashioned as the idea of the tea-drinking, bowler-hatted man on the Clapham omnibus, with his 2.4 children living comfortably in suburbia, in a nation of cheeky-chappie shopkeepers?

Producer: Stan Ferguson.

Rob presents '5 reasons to love... Bach organ works'. Throughout the week Rob puts Bach's organ works centre stage, showcasing their complexity, and the virtuosity required to perform them. He highlights their flashes of humour, as well as their gravitas and sheer power, plus the way Bach often reinvented pre-existing works. Rob hand-picks recordings by organists including Helmut Walcha, Simon Preston and Ton Koopman.

9.30am
Take part in today's challenge. Two pieces of music are played together - can you work out what they are?

10am
Rob's guest this week is Nitin Sawhney. A composer, producer, songwriter, DJ and multi-instrumentalist, Nitin is one of the BBC's Ambassadors for the new Ten Pieces project. His musical credentials include collaboration with artists from Sir Paul McCartney to The London Symphony Orchestra. As a child Nitin trained as a classical pianist, moving on to classical and flamenco guitar and learning to play sitar and tabla. He has since toured the world with his band, and recorded nine studio albums, winning accolades for his amalgamation of styles including jazz, flamenco, electronica and classical Indian ragas. He has composed for theatre, film, television and video games with credits including writing the BAFTA-winning soundtrack for The Human Planet, scoring ad campaigns for brands such as Yves Saint Laurent and Nike and writing a new score for Alfred Hitchcock's The Lodger. Nitin will be sharing a selection of his favourite classical music with Rob, every day at 10am.

10.30am Ten Pieces
The BBC has just launched the new Ten Pieces for secondary schools, opening up the world of classical music to children and inspiring them to respond creatively to what they hear. To celebrate this Rob chooses music that complements this exciting selection of works.

11am
Rob's featured artist is the cellist Steven Isserlis. A musician who wears his considerable virtuosity lightly, Isserlis has received worldwide acclaim for his technique, musicianship and command of the instrument. Throughout the week Rob presents recordings by Isserlis including an elegant interpretation of Haydn's Cello Concerto No.1, a lyrical performance of Grieg's Cello Sonata and a rendition of Prokofiev's Cello Concerto that captures the bittersweet language of the work.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06dcq9h)
Johann Baptist Vanhal (1739-1813)

Music for the Masses

New times bring new musical fashions and Vanhal is forced to adapt to survive. Vienna's music critics and the aristocratic cognoscenti aren't impressed by his new, overtly populist direction. Nevertheless, business is booming.

Vanhal's story has all the ingredients for a great musical drama: escape from bondage, early success dashed by sudden personal crisis, and a remarkable re-birth won through faith, talent and strength of character. This week, Donald Macleod relates the colourful story of one of the 18th century's leading musical lights.

Building on the success of BBC Music's Ten Pieces for Primary, which has already engaged more than half of UK primary schools, the BBC is extending the initiative to secondary schools, aiming to open up the world of classical music to children aged 11 and above, inspiring them to respond creatively to the repertoire.
In this special edition of In Tune, live from Thomas Tallis School in Blackheath, London, Ten Pieces Ambassador Suzy Klein welcomes guests including fellow-ambassadors baritone Roderick Williams and DJ Mr Switch, as well as the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Stephen Bell, and pianist Iain Burnside. They will all be performing live in the school hall for an audience of school children, some of whom will also have the chance to perform alongside the orchestra in some of the Ten Pieces, including the Mambo from Bernstein's West Side Story.
Other live performances include Vaughan Williams's The Lark Ascending, and a concerto for turntables and orchestra by Gabriel Prokofiev, featuring Mr Switch.

Also in the programme:
Ten Pieces ambassador Nicola Benedetti presents: Ten Facts Ten Pieces - a short downloadable feature linked to the BBC's Ten Pieces project, which continues to inspire a generation of children to become creative with classical music. This year the project focuses on secondary school children. Each day at 5.30pm Nicola finds ten quirky and entertaining facts about each of the Ten Pieces. Today's work is Shostakovich - Symphony No. 10 (2nd movement).

Richard Strauss: An Alpine Symphony

Jennifer Johnston, mezzo-soprano
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko, conductor

Out of the lowest depths of the orchestra, murmurs arise, daylight gathers in the brasses, and then, all of a sudden, the sun appears in full orchestral blaze. Dawn arrives and so begins music's most vividly depicted mountainous ascent. One hundred years after its premiere, Vasily Petrenko and a super-sized orchestra scale the peak of Strauss's mighty Alpine Symphony. Waterfalls, glaciers, an ear-splitting storm - the whole of nature is evoked. First, though, take an autumn stroll in the Russian countryside with four lovely miniatures by Tchaikovsky, and join Liverpool's own star mezzo Jennifer Johnston for a whistle-stop world tour in Luciano Berio's Folk Songs.
