Haas has based his new work on a novel by Norwegian writer Jon Fosse, and this world premiere is directed by Graham Vick. Haas's musical language is characterised by soundscapes, and as he describes is "not based on notated structures, but only on the perception of the sound." Ivan Hewett introduces the opera, and the broadcast features interviews with the composer and the director Graham Vick.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b06r44b4)
Northern Lights: Sara Wheeler

As part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season, Michael Berkeley's guest is the award-winning writer on the Polar Regions, Sara Wheeler.

Sara Wheeler spent years resisting the magnetic North. She established her reputation with books about the South Pole, where the American Government appointed her writer-in-residence: she is the only person to have slept on Captain Scott's bunk, apart from that great Antarctic explorer of course. Her book about the Antarctic became an international best-seller, and she went on to write a biography of another Antarctic explorer, Apsley Cherry-Garrard. So it was not till middle age that she realized she couldn't resist the pull of the North Pole. Her book 'The Magnetic North' draws on journeys through Russia, Canada and Greenland, staying with the people who live within the Arctic Circle. She says 'The Antarctic, with its purity and beauty, symbolizes what the earth could be; the Arctic, which is peopled and polluted, symbolizes what the earth actually is. I was desperately trying to avoid the Arctic, but I realized as the years went by that for all its problems it was too important a part of the contemporary world for a writer to ignore.'

For Private Passions, Sara Wheeler has compiled a playlist of music inspired by the sounds of the Arctic: the calls of Arctic birds, the sound of ice cracking. She includes rare archive of music made by indigenous peoples in Greenland, recorded in igloos there at the beginning of the 20th century, but very similar to the music she heard herself when travelling a few years ago. Composers include Prokofiev, Tippett, Vaughan Williams and Einojuhani Rautavaara, whose 'Cantus Arcticus' captures the sound of Arctic birds.


SUN 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b06qjz7t)
Wigmore Hall Mondays - Artemis Quartet

Live from Wigmore Hall

Presented by Sara Mohr Pietsch

The Artemis Quartet and pianist Markus Groh play Bach, Piazzolla and Brahms.

Bach/Piazzolla: Partita for Trio - In Memoriam Friedemann Weigle
Brahms: Piano Quartet No. 3 in C minor Op. 60

Artemis Quartet
Markus Groh, piano

In this concert, subtitled "In Memoriam Friedemann Weigle," the Artemis Quartet bid farewell to their violist Friedemann Weigle, who died earlier this year.

The quartet writes:

"Featuring excerpts from Bach's Goldberg Variations, the English Suite BWV 808 and the Sinfonia BWV 795, as well as two fragments from Piazzolla's Oblivion and Fuga 9, the 'Partita for Trio' spans the lifetime of Friedemann, from his beginnings as a church musician's son to his time as a member of the Artemis Quartett. In 2012, when we were conceptualising our Bach-Piazzolla suite, Friedemann was devoted to arranging the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. He had a special affinity for the music of Bach, music that had accompanied him since his childhood. At the same time, he had been fascinated by pop music - from rock to jazz - since his youth. Indeed, he often proudly said that his first public musical performance was as a drummer in a rock band. Friedemann's curiosity for new musical forms once again became apparent when he learned - and learned to love - Piazzolla's Tango Nuevo through the Artemis Quartett.
We performed the 'Aria' from the Goldberg Variations at Friedemann's funeral. The idea then came about for us to honour Friedemann through the arrangement of a Partita, which would bring together these two aspects of his musical interests and, as a trio, to show the absence of a beloved friend.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b06r4611)

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b06r4617)
Above Sixty, Below Zero

Nature dominates man in the far north. The landscape, its wildlife and natural resources can provide feast or famine, wealth or poverty. Writer, journalist and Nordic obsessive, Lesley Riddoch follows the 60th parallel north to find out how northern man and woman's intimate relationship with their landscape is changing.

For local people a warming climate and the expansion of mineral extraction, shipping and oil and gas exploration radically twist the once familiar challenges of Arctic life. As one Inuit elder explains, "it's like an old friend behaving strangely".

Lesley visits the Swedish city that's about to fall into the world's largest underground iron ore mine. In Iceland she meets farmers, entomologists and fishermen dealing with the most rapid climate warming on the planet. She hears how the Inuit of Baffin Island welcome new jobs but worry about the appearance of robins in their gardens and Atlantic salmon in their fishing nets.

As the nature of the north becomes just a little more southern how will the people maintain an identity forged in a harsh climate?

Producer: Alasdair Cross

First broadcast December 2015 as part of BBC Radio Three's Northern Lights season.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b06r49bc)
Northern Lights: Sibelius's Kullervo

Northern Lights: Sibelius Kullervo.
Ian Skelly introduces a performance of Sibelius's epic musical hybrid given at the BBC Proms as part of this year's celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of the composer's birth. That's preceded by some recently discovered fragments which probably belong to the composer's Eighth Symphony, the 'holy grail' of Finnish classical music, plus songs by the Swedish early 20th century composer Ture Rangström.

Rangström: 3 Songs - Melody, Wings in the Night, The Shield Maiden
Malin Byström (soprano), Matti Hirvonen (piano)

Sibelius: Fragments from the Eighth Symphony
BBC Philharmonic, John Storgårds (conductor)

Sibelius: Kullervo
Johanna Rusanen-Kartano (soprano)
Waltteri Torikka (baritone)
Polytech Choir
BBC Symphony Chorus (men's voices)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

The folk hero Kullervo was the inspiration behind a powerful national statement for a country struggling to overthrow Russian rule. This massive musical hybrid - part cantata, part symphony, part suite - is a vivid and thrilling work, richly melodic but looking ahead to modernism.


SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b06r49bf)
Finlandia

Tim Pigott-Smith who died earlier this year stars as Jean Sibelius in Stephen Wyatt's psychological drama, woven around a Finnish epic and the composer's music.

It is 1945. Sibelius, national hero, then aged eighty, is about to burn his Eighth Symphony despite the protests of his wife, Aino. He had had nothing new completed or performed for over twenty years, so why would he do this now?

Finland had come to regret its devil's bargain with Nazi Germany: it had warded off Russia, but at what cost? And for how long? In 1899 Sibelius had written Finlandia, expressing defiance of Russian hegemony and a belief in an independent future. Finland is once again struggling for its identity. Could Sibelius do it again with his Eighth Symphony? Closely bound with the Finnish identity he had helped to create, he now finds himself in a moment of creative and national despair. The fate of his long anticipated Eighth Symphony is in the balance.

Finlandia interweaves an intense conflict between husband and wife about burning the manuscripts, with scenes from The Kalevala, the national epic of Finland. The Kalevala morphs in Sibelius's agitated mind until it embodies his internal conflicts and the historical forces at work on Finland. The excerpts from The Kalevala weave in and out of the drama to imaginatively shine a light into the composer's mind and they are underscored with the music The Kalevala inspired Sibelius to write.

The argument between Aino and Sibelius illuminates parts of Sibelius's past and his attitude towards his work and his country, but at its heart the play is an examination of the psyche of Sibelius - artist, national symbol, husband and father - at a crucial juncture in his life and that of his country.


SUN 22:30 Early Music Late (b06r49bh)
Ensemble 1700

Ensemble 1700 and guests including recorder player Dorothee Oberlinger and soprano Dorothee Mields perform 'nature music' by Van Eyck, Telemann, Biber, Vivaldi and others, in a concert recorded at the 2015 Potsdam Sanssouci Music Festival. Presented by Simon Heighes.


SUN 23:30 Glenn Gould: The Idea of North (b06r49bk)
As part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season, a chance to hear Glenn Gould's "contrapuntal radio documentary" The Idea of North. The Canadian pianist made this programme for CBC in 1967, in which an anthropologist, a sociologist, a civil servant, a nurse and a surveyor discuss the subjective 'idea' and the reality of the North. Montage and voice counterpoint are used to express the antagonism and scope of the country, the loneliness and isolation, the warmth of community living, personal reasons for living there, the fear that human nature will gradually take over from the elements as common enemy number one and the challenge involved in any decision to live there.

Sibelius the Finn

Finlandia

Donald Macleod explores how Jean Sibelius's music helped bring the nation of Finland into being.

150 years after he was born, Jean Sibelius remains the most famous and important artistic figure in Finland's history, and indeed, their most famous celebrity in any field. His music helped rouse the Finnish people and galvanise their struggle for independence - and yet, the long life of this proud Finn (he lived to the age of 91) is a mass of contradictions. At home, Sibelius spoke Swedish, the language of his childhood, and it's often forgotten he was a Russian citizen until he was 52. This week, in conversation with the Sibelius scholar Glenda Goss, Donald Macleod explores the key musical works by Sibelius that helped articulate the idea and essence of Finnish identity.

The week begins with Sibelius's most famous musical celebration of the Finnish people, "Finlandia", before Donald Macleod explores the composer's early life growing up in the provincial town of Hameenlinna, contrasting them with two of his last - and strangest - musical works. We hear from Sibelius's much-loved Violin Concerto, and his vast choral fresco "Kullervo" - his earliest and most radical setting of Finland's national poetic epic, the Kalevala, in which he sets the Finnish language for the first time.

Cornerstones

Northern Lights - Cornerstones: Scandinavia's Samiland

As part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season the award-winning poet John Burnside explores his fascination with the Sámi landscapes of Finnmark in northern Norway, reflecting on how they're shaped by ice as much as rock.

Winner of both the 2011 TS Eliot Prize for Poetry and the Forward Prize, John Burnside has returned time and again to find out more about the resilient culture of the Sámi people of northern Scandinavia. Here, he considers the wild beauty of Sámiland (or Lapland), describing a region at such variance with the Santa-themed tourism flogged to visitors.

Producer: Mark Smalley.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b06r5gxh)
Northern Lights: Music from Finland

Jez Nelson presents music from the Finnish jazz scene, as part of the Northern Lights season on BBC Radio 3, including highlights from this year's Pori Jazz Festival.

The live selections include Verneri Pohjola, a trumpeter known for his kaleidoscopic sound, which can be both rich and brassy, and airy and flute-like, as well as from tenor saxophonist and flautist Juhani Aaltonen, a stalwart of the Finnish scene who celebrates his 80th birthday this week. Supported by an energetic rhythm section, Aaltonen takes off on urgent, improvised flights over a backdrop of spacey piano and rumbling drums, for a wide-ranging set that connects with the sounds of post-bop, contemporary Wayne Shorter and the spiritual jazz of John Coltrane.

Also in the programme, Finnish broadcaster Markus Partanen joins Jez on the line to share some of the best new releases from the country.

Sibelius the Finn

Symposium

Donald Macleod explores Sibelius's decadent life in 1890s Helsinki, and the increasingly harsh restrictions placed on Finns by the Russian Empire.

150 years after he was born, Jean Sibelius remains the most famous and important artistic figure in Finland's history, and indeed, their most famous celebrity in any field. His music helped rouse the Finnish people and galvanise their struggle for independence - and yet, the long life of this proud Finn (he lived to the age of 91) is a mass of contradictions. At home, Sibelius spoke Swedish, the language of his childhood, and it's often forgotten he was a Russian citizen until he was 52. This week, in conversation with the Sibelius scholar Glenda Goss, Donald Macleod explores the key musical works by Sibelius that helped articulate the idea and essence of Finnish identity.

After decades of relatively contented existence within the Russian Empire, the 1890s saw Finland's autonomy being gradually eroded by the "Russian bear" to the West. Today's episode begins with a portrait of Sibelius by his colleague Busoni, before presenting a rare and highly-charged choral work, "The Boat Journey", whose premiere was described as "a bombshell" in the move towards independence. We also hear about Sibelius's drunken adventures as part of the notorious "Symposium": a group of artists who would congregate in Helsinki to debate, over considerable quantities of alcohol, the great philosophical and aesthetic questions of the time. The programme ends with two much-loved works that helped proclaim a distinct Finnish identity: Sibelius's "Karelia Suite" and "The Swan of Tuonela" from his "Lemminkäinen Suite", drawn from the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala.

Cornerstones

Cornerstones - The Canadian Arctic

'Rock talk' is what the travel writer Sara Wheeler recalls of her time cooped up in cold, billowing tents with a horde of geologists well north of Hudson Bay up in Canada's Arctic. That and the unforgettable smell of drying socks. Visiting a geoscientific mapping project whilst researching the circumpolar Arctic had its highs, as well as its lows. Besides the socks was the extraordinary encounter with a browned circle on the ground, an old Inuit tent ring. In the middle sat a flinty limestone tool, which had probably lain there for 5,000 years since it had last been used to scrape seal hide.

Sibelius the Finn

Crisis

Donald Macleod explores how the early years of the 20th century saw Finnish national fervour reach fever pitch - with Sibelius caught in the maelstrom.

150 years after he was born, Jean Sibelius remains the most famous and important artistic figure in Finland's history, and indeed, their most famous celebrity in any field. His music helped rouse the Finnish people and galvanise their struggle for independence - and yet, the long life of this proud Finn (he lived to the age of 91) is a mass of contradictions. At home, Sibelius spoke Swedish, the language of his childhood, and it's often forgotten he was a Russian citizen until he was 52. This week, in conversation with the Sibelius scholar Glenda Goss, Donald Macleod explores the key musical works by Sibelius that helped articulate the idea and essence of Finnish identity.

Today's episode pairs one of Sibelius's most hummed, and possibly most frivolous, works with a trio of politically-charged pieces written around the turn of the 20th century, when Finnish national fervour was reaching fever pitch. We also hear from his breakthrough First Symphony, a work which was to propel the thirtysomething composer into the concert halls of Europe.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b06r58yr)
Cornerstones

Cornerstones: Greenland Caves

Geologist and climatologist Gina Moseley led a team of cavers into an unknown system of limestone caverns in northern Greenland in the summer of 2015. Her findings will keep her busy for a long time to come. She describes what it was like wriggling into these remote spaces, knowing they were the first people to have ever done so. This in a place where the rest of the world's population of 7.3 billion people lives well south of their northern latitude.

The wonder of being there contrasts with the work that lies ahead of her, to analyse the flowstone in the caves they came to sample, and to find out what it tells us of previous times when the earth's climate warmed up, just as it's doing again now.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b06r5gxm)

Sibelius the Finn

War

Donald Macleod explores three of Sibelius's most powerful - and unusual - evocations of the Finnish character.

150 years after he was born, Jean Sibelius remains the most famous and important artistic figure in Finland's history, and indeed, their most famous celebrity in any field. His music helped rouse the Finnish people and galvanise their struggle for independence - and yet, the long life of this proud Finn (he lived to the age of 91) is a mass of contradictions. At home, Sibelius spoke Swedish, the language of his childhood, and it's often forgotten he was a Russian citizen until he was 52. This week, in conversation with the Sibelius scholar Glenda Goss, Donald Macleod explores the key musical works by Sibelius that helped articulate the idea and essence of Finnish identity.

After the dramatic political assassinations of the early 1900s, Finland found itself waiting for independence as the Russian Empire took its Grand Duchy into the First World War. Meanwhile, a weary Sibelius created two of his most powerful works based on Finland's national epic, the Kalevala: the symphonic poem Pohjola's Daughter, and the extraordinary scena for soprano and orchestra, Luonnotar. The programme also explores one of Sibelius's least-known chamber works, yet one full of profound and dramatic musical statements: his incidental music to the play Ödlan.

Cornerstones

Cornerstones: Siberia

Daniel Kalder conjures up the vast landscapes east of the Urals, where taiga becomes tundra. Siberia is more a state of mind than a place, given how the term encompasses not only the endless forests of the taiga but also that which lies beyond them, where the trees dwindle, diminish and finally give way to the tundra's ceaseless realms of permafrost. As part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season Kalder, a travel writer who's lived in and travelled around Russia, reflects on how ice and wind vies with geology to shape these memorable tracts. And in that land of ice, not just the cryogenically preserved woolly mammoths, but is it true that former Soviet apparatchiks are buried with their medals, in full state regalia?

Sibelius the Finn

Independence

Donald Macleod introduces Sibelius's most controversial political work - plus perhaps his greatest symphonic statement.

150 years after he was born, Jean Sibelius remains the most famous and important artistic figure in Finland's history, and indeed, their most famous celebrity in any field. His music helped rouse the Finnish people and galvanise their struggle for independence - and yet, the long life of this proud Finn (he lived to the age of 91) is a mass of contradictions. At home, Sibelius spoke Swedish, the language of his childhood, and it's often forgotten he was a Russian citizen until he was 52. This week, and in conversation with the Sibelius scholar Glenda Goss, Donald Macleod explores the key musical works by Sibelius that helped articulate the idea and essence of Finnish identity.

Despite his role as the torch-bearer of Finnish nationalism, Sibelius rarely ventured into nakedly political musical statements...with one highly-controversial exception. Donald Macleod explores his tubthumping "March of the Finnish Jaeger Battalion", a public statement written at the height of the First World War that sounds jarring even a century on. The programme also presents a rare opportunity to hear from the original version of Sibelius's symphonic masterpiece, his Fifth Symphony, plus his last works based on the great collection of Finnish national poetry, the Kalevala, the late cantata "Vainon Virsi" and the eerie tone poem "Tapiola".

For Radio 3's 'Northern Lights' season, Ian McMillan is looking North. Ian's guests include the linguistic anthropologist Stephen Pax Leonard.

Producer: Cecile Wright.

Cornerstones

Northern Lights - Cornerstones: Alaska

Environmental journalist Jason Mark visits Alaska's remote northern rim, and on the shores of the Arctic Ocean at a barbecue with Inuits, he reflects on the impact of our lust for hydrocarbons. Whilst the ice melts beneath them, so the search goes on for oil in these northern parts. He tries to grasp what he sees as the bitter ironies of climate change, confirmed by his encounters with Inuit hunters and others who describe how much the weather is warming.

Producer: Mark Smalley.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b06r5gxr)
Northern Lights: Nanook of the North

The first broadcast performance of Canadian inuit singer Tanya Tagaq's soundtrack to the classic 1922 silent movie 'Nanook of the North' by American film-maker, Robert J. Flaherty. The performance was specially recorded at the Banff Centre in Alberta, and the original movie is being streamed live alongside the performance on the Radio 3 website. Presented by Verity Sharp.

'Nanook of the North' is celebrated as the first full-length documentary film ever made, chronicling the traditional ways of the Canadian Inuit just as they were disappearing for ever - it documents the lives of Nanook and his family with a direct, unromanticised approach, reflecting the brutal harshness of their environment. Tanya Tagaq, who last year won Canada's prestigious Polaris Prize, is joined by violinist Jesse Zubot and percussionist Jean Martin in a score rooted in the throat-singing traditions of the Inuit people.

This is the first time Radio 3 has streamed a film with soundtrack live on the station's website.

Tanya Tagaq and Nanook of the North was originally commissioned by the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). This performance was recorded in association with The Banff Centre, Canada's arts and cultural institute which provides opportunities for those in the arts world to advance their skills.
