SUN 00:00 Geoffrey Smith's Jazz (b04t928j)

SUN 01:00 The Well-Tuned Piano (b06ttrxp)
The Well-Tuned Piano by La Monte Young is an epic piano solo lasting for five hours. It's a classic of American Minimalism, composed in 1964 (though Young considers it to be still a work in progress). Max Reinhardt introduces this recording, in which the composer performs on a specially-tuned piano.
La Monte Young is one of the first minimalist composers, along with Terry Riley, Philip Glass and Steve Reich. He is especially known for his development of drone music. He started out as a jazz musician, but then studied composition with Stockhausen in Germany, and also electronic and classical Indian music in the USA. He considers the Well-Tuned Piano to be his masterpiece.

"My personal experience with The Well-Tuned Piano was one of ... heightened concentration...the flow of momentum marshaled the vibrations of air in the room, slowly making the ear aware of sounds that weren't actually being played....I thought I heard foghorns, the roar of machinery, wood blocks, a didgeridoo, and most powerfully, the low, low vibration of the 18-cycles-per-minute E-flat that the ear supplied as the "missing fundamental" of the piano's overtones."
- Kyle Gann, The Village Voice (1987),.


SUN 07:00 Breakfast (b06tk6xx)

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b06tk6xz)
Gerald Barry

For New Year New Music, Michael Berkeley's guest is the Irish composer Gerald Barry. We tend to think of 'New Music' as something deadly serious and even agonised; Gerald Barry utterly confounds that stereotype. His latest opera, which will be staged at the Barbican this March, transforms The Importance of Being Earnest - with Lady Bracknell sung by a bass in a business suit, and Gwendolyn and Cecily throwing dinner plates at each other. It's Barry's fifth opera; his first, The Intelligence Park from 1990, told the story of an 18th century composer who fell in love with a castrato. As well as the operas there are scores of instrumental pieces, piano concertos and choral works. They have wonderful titles: Humiliated and Insulted; The Destruction of Sodom - a piece for 8 horns and 2 wind machines.

In Private Passions, Gerald Barry talks to Michael Berkeley about his childhood in a small village in the West of Ireland. It wasn't a musical household, but as a young boy he heard Clara Butt singing Handel on the radio and that was an awakening for him, 'a visitation'. From then on, he knew he wanted to be a composer, though he didn't even know the word. At the age of 14, he won a medal for composition - by taking a Mozart piano sonata and cutting it up, sticking it together again in random order. Barry went on to study with Stockhausen and the Argentinian composer Mauricio Kagel, and he talks about his struggle to make a living as a church organist in Cologne: he was fired, first for being Catholic, then for being late for 7.30am Mass. He gives a moving account of his mother dying, just as his first opera was performed. And he reflects on the woeful blandness of singing voices in the musical world now, compared with the countertenors and castrati of the past.

Gerald Barry's marvellously idiosyncratic choices include Mozart, Alfred Deller, Clara Butt, William Byrd, a hymn setting by Stainer, and Oscar Wilde's letter from Reading Gaol, De Profundis, set by the contemporary composer Rzewski. He ends with a hilarious recording of the Red Army Choir singing 'It's a Long Way to Tipperary'.

The International Chorale of Brussels introduce themselves in our regular spot,"Meet My Choir" and Harrison Birtwistle's "The Moth Requiem", an elegiac piece written for female voices, harps and alto flute, inspired by a poem about a moth trapped inside a piano, is Sara's choral classic.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b043wpvb)
Good Intentions

Intent is a great driver for drama. The better the intent the more agonising the tragedy when it all goes wrong and, in equal part, the more hilarious the comedy as chaos unfolds in front of a knowing audience. And there are several different varieties of good intention; the ambitious, the optimistic, the clear sighted, the nervous and the horribly mistaken.

Today's Words and Music seeks, with the best of intentions, to illustrate just a few of them and to discover where they might lead, beginning with a well-intentioned trip to the underworld where Orpheus attempts to win back his wife.

Eve's intentions appear laudable enough as Milton has her contemplate sampling 'the fruit of that forbidden tree', and it's hard to blame Shakespeare's Juliet and Friar Lawrence for hatching a plot that they believe will ensure a happy ending all round.

There's a look back to the now agonising intentions of the Music Hall Recruitment songs with the results reflected with understated eloquence by Sarojini Naidu's 'Gift of India.'

And there are less direct approaches. Was Midas a greedy tyrant or just another, very modern, figure to fall under the sway of the apparent virtue of economic need? Carol Ann Duffy has Mrs Midas watch and judge the results. And Robert Burns, doing what any farmer should be doing at harvest time, finds his innocent intentions are pretty grim news for the mouse whose home he unwittingly exposes.
And then there's the sheer joy resulting from the operatic activities of a cleaning lady in Wexford, shared by the late Bernard Levin, and the Flanders and Swann hymn to eternal self-generating good works in 'The Gasman Cometh'.

The readers are John Sessions and Indira Varma.

Producer: Tom Alban.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b05pqrx2)
Memoirs of the Spacewomen

Matthew Sweet journeys into the science fiction futures of three neglected women writers

Despite the founding figure of Mary Shelley, the canon of British science fiction is male-dominated: Wells, CS Lewis, Wyndham, Aldiss. Beyond the canon, however, are a forgotten band of rebels - the women who wrote the future, explored the limits of outer space. Matthew Sweet brings them back from the void.

Interwoven with Matthew Sweet's new dramatisation of Naomi Mitchison's Memoirs of a Spacewoman and with specially composed music from the Vile Electrodes evoking the lost sound of early BBC science fiction programmes.

Matthew roams the corridors of the Ministry of Brains - a government agency created in Rose Macaulay's What-Not (1919), a Wodehousian comedy set in a eugenic Britain. He explores the post-apocalyptic landscape of Margot Bennett's The Long Way Back (1954), in which a survey team of black Africans map out the jungles and ruins of a savage England. And he encounters the weird alien worlds and precisely-imagined ecosystems of Naomi Mitchison's Memoirs of a Spacewoman (1962). We'll also discover the history of radicalism that unites their biographies and backgrounds.

Producer: Allegra McIlroy.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b06tk8kq)

Death And The King's Horseman
by Wole Soyinka

A new production of the drama by Nobel Prize-winning writer Wole Soyinka, based on real events in 1940s Nigeria. A colonial district officer intervenes to prevent a local man committing ritual suicide - with far reaching consequences.

Death And The King's Horseman is considered to be Professor Soyinka's greatest play. In awarding Soyinka the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986, the Swedish Academy drew special attention to Death and the King's Horseman as evidence of his talent for combining Yoruban and European culture into a unique kind of poetic drama.

Sara Mohr-Pietsch visits the workspaces of three very different composers as part of the Composers' Rooms series.

In the acoustically rich Kielder Forest, Sara meets sound-recordist Chris Watson capturing birdsong with mobile microphones and considers the art of listening. Composer and performer Jennifer Walshe explains how she divides her composing time between her flat in London and house in Ireland, and how her work explores the everyday sounds and sights of her immediate environment. And Sara joins electronic musician and producer Matthew Herbert on the Kent coast in a state of flux between his office-like studio and a shambolic fishing hut.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06tkgvs)
Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007)

Memories and Music

New Year New Music

There aren't many composers with a place on the cover of a Beatles LP - Karlheinz Stockhausen's face is top row, fifth from the left on Sergeant Pepper. Stockhausen's name is better known than almost any other composer of our age. Yet even though much of his music isn't well known, by reputation he excites extremes of opinion. An open mind is all you need, when, for the first time on Composer of the Week, as part of Radio 3's "New Year New Music" season "Donald Macleod and his guest, composer, writer and broadcaster Robert Worby introduce you to the mind and music of one of the most original and innovative composers who's ever lived.

Stockhausen's formative experiences growing up in Nazi Germany show up in his music. His preoccupation with flight, mechanical mechanisms and the cause and effect of different sounds can all be traced back to his earliest childhood memories. Born in 1928 into a Catholic family, his father, Simon, was a primary school teacher and his mother, Gertrud came from a wealthy farming family. The family lived in some poverty, but his mother had a musical leaning, playing the piano and singing, while his father enjoyed amateur dramatics. Family life was disrupted when his mother needed to be hospitalised for the treatment of her depression. Thereafter family life for Stockhausen was unsettled. His father went to the front as an officer in 1943 and was presumed dead at the end of the war. In 1941, it's thought that Stockhausen's mother had been a victim of Hitler's "euthanasia policy". Now an orphan, in a devastated, war torn country, a 16 year old Stockhausen dedicated himself to surviving and studying, eventually gaining a place at the music school in Cologne. It was to be the platform on which his career as a composer was launched.

Today Donald Macleod and his guest, composer, writer and broadcaster Robert Worby look at the difficulties of his early years, and Stockhausen's training in Cologne. Once the prohibition of New Music during the Third Reich had been lifted, "modern classics" could be heard once again. Invigorated by this intellectual freedom, Stockhausen made the most of his opportunities, exploring the works of many composers, among them Hindemith, Stravinsky and Schoenberg.

Five Seismic Moments in New Music

Robert Worby on John Cage's 4'33"

Robert Worby's selected seismic moment in new music is the first performance of John Cage's controversial 4'33" and its impact on performers and audiences ever since.

The story of new music is peppered with events that have altered the course of musical history. For our New Year New Music season, we asked five Radio 3 presenters to each tell the story of one of these "seismic moments". From silence and ambient sounds to riot and revolution, these intriguing events have, in different ways, changed the progress of sound and culture - or, as one of our five suggests, have they?

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b06tks34)
Beats and Pieces Big Band

A second chance to hear Manchester big band Beats and Pieces perform music from their latest album, All In, recorded live at London's Ronnie Scott's jazz club in July 2015.

Comprising many of Manchester's best and brightest young musicians, under the direction of composer and conductor Ben Cottrell, Beats and Pieces are one of the most exciting ensembles to emerge from the north of England in recent years.

Known for their explosive energy and heavyweight sound, they have reinvented big band music for a new generation, drawing on sources as diverse as Michael Jackson, Radiohead, Loose Tubes and Bjork.

The release of their award-winning debut album, 2012's Big Ideas, brought them a host of new fans and All In, last year's keenly awaited follow up, seems likely to win them many more. This live show sees the band at their edgy, hard-grooving best.

Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007)

Darmstadt and Paris

New Year New Music

After a difficult start to life in war torn Germany, Stockhausen's career takes off at Darmstadt and in Paris with Messiaen.

Stockhausen's formative experiences growing up in Nazi Germany show up in his later music. His preoccupation with flight, mechanical mechanisms and the cause and effect of different sounds can all be traced back to his earliest childhood memories. Born in 1928 into a Catholic family, his father, Simon, was a primary school teacher and his mother, Gertrud came from a wealthy farming family. The family lived in some poverty, but his mother had a musical leaning, playing the piano and singing, while his father enjoyed amateur dramatics. Family life was disrupted when his mother needed to be hospitalised for the treatment of her depression. Thereafter family life for Stockhausen was unsettled. His father went to the front as an officer in 1943 and was presumed dead at the end of the war. In 1941, it's thought that Stockhausen's mother had been a victim of Hitler's "euthanasia policy". Now an orphan, in a devastated, war torn country, a 16 year old Stockhausen dedicated himself to surviving and studying, eventually gaining a place at the music school in Cologne. It was to be the platform on which his career as a composer was launched.

A graduate of the Cologne Music School, where he distinguished himself in his formal studies, Stockhausen built up a reputation among avant-garde composers in Europe and America. It was at the Darmstadt Summer School that he first encountered Messiaen's work, which inspired him to go and study with the French composer. Presented by Donald Macleod with composer, writer and broadcaster Robert Worby.

Rob's Artist of the Week is Pierre Monteux, a conductor who was at the cutting edge of new music in the early 20th century. He premiered works by composers who were the movers and shakers of the period, including Debussy, Stravinsky and Ravel. He also brought music to audiences in Paris, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Boston and London. Rob showcases recordings by Monteux ranging from Debussy's Images and Stravinsky's Petrushka to symphonies by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.

Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007)

Adventures in Electronica

New Year New Music

Stockhausen breaks new ground in the field of electronic music synthesis.

Karlheinz Stockhausen's formative experiences growing up in Nazi Germany show up in his later music. His preoccupation with flight, mechanical mechanisms and the cause and effect of different sounds can all be traced back to his earliest childhood memories. Born in 1928 into a Catholic family, his father, Simon, was a primary school teacher and his mother, Gertrud came from a wealthy farming family. The family lived in some poverty, but his mother had a musical leaning, playing the piano and singing, while his father enjoyed amateur dramatics. Family life was disrupted when his mother needed to be hospitalised for the treatment of her depression. Thereafter family life for Stockhausen was unsettled. His father went to the front as an officer in 1943 and was presumed dead at the end of the war. In 1941, it's thought that Stockhausen's mother had been a victim of Hitler's "euthanasia policy". Now an orphan, in a devastated, war torn country, a 16 year old Stockhausen dedicated himself to surviving and studying, eventually gaining a place at the music school in Cologne. It was to be the platform on which his career as a composer was launched.

After studying in Paris with Messiaen, Stockhausen took a post in the electronic studio at Cologne Radio Station. His work in the field of electronic music far surpassed anything that the studio had created before. Composer, writer and broadcast Robert Worby joins Donald Macleod to discuss why Stockhausen believed electronic music held the key to the future and that in twenty years no-one would be listening to Bach anymore.

Lorraine Hansberry

With two plays by Lorraine Hansberry being staged in the UK in 2016, Philip Dodd looks at her writing and its resonance today. When A Raisin in the Sun opened in 1959 it was the first play written by a black woman to be performed on Broadway. It is now touring the UK and being broadcast at the end of January on BBC Radio 3. Les Blancs - written 11 years later - is set in an African country on the brink of civil war and is staged at the National Theatre in Spring. The new production of Raisin in the Sun is being directed by Dawn Walton and Yael Farber is in charge of the National's account of Les Blancs - both directors will be joined by the playwright, Kwame Kwei Armah to discuss Hansberry. Kwame Kwei-Armah, who runs Baltimore's Centre Stage, put on what he called the Raisin Cycle in 2013 which included Bruce Norris's Clybourne Park and his own Beneatha's Place, both responses to Hansberry. Philip's other guests are the historian Dr Althea Legal- Miller and the anthropologist, Kit Davis.

Les Blancs directed by Yael Farber opens at the National Theatre on March 24th.
A Raisin in the Sun directed by Dawn Walton artistic director of Eclipse Theatre company opens at the Sheffield Crucible Studio Theatre on Jan 28th and tours to New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich; Nuffield Theatre, Southampton; Liverpool Playhouse; Watford Palace Theatre; The Albany, Deptford ; The Belgrade, Coventry.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b06tp1vg)
Five Seismic Moments in New Music

Ivan Hewett on Brian Eno's Music for Airports

In his 1978 album Music for Airports Brian Eno created a new genre of music he named 'ambient music'. The album was designed to ease the tedium of waiting in airports, but ambient music, which Eno said was 'as ignorable as it is interesting', had an influence way beyond that. Ivan Hewett looks into the genesis and subsequent history of ambient music, and explains why Eno's description is not as self-contradictory as it appears to be.

The story of new music is peppered with events that have altered the course of musical history. For our New Year New Music season, we asked five Radio 3 presenters to each tell the story of one of these "seismic moments". From silence and ambient sounds to riot and revolution, these intriguing events have, in different ways, changed the progress of sound and culture - or, as one of our five suggests, have they?

Written and read by Ivan Hewett.
Produced by Elizabeth Allard.

Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007)

The Making of a Revolution

New Year New Music

By the end of the 1960s Stockhausen is seeking new musical directions to express a higher spiritual awareness.

Stockhausen's formative experiences growing up in Nazi Germany show up in his later music. His preoccupation with flight, mechanical mechanisms and the cause and effect of different sounds can all be traced back to his earliest childhood memories. Born in 1928 into a Catholic family, his father, Simon, was a primary school teacher and his mother, Gertrud came from a wealthy farming family. The family lived in some poverty, but his mother had a musical leaning, playing the piano and singing, while his father enjoyed amateur dramatics. Family life was disrupted when his mother needed to be hospitalised for the treatment of her depression. Thereafter family life for Stockhausen was unsettled. His father went to the front as an officer in 1943 and was presumed dead at the end of the war. In 1941, it's thought that Stockhausen's mother had been a victim of Hitler's "euthanasia policy". Now an orphan, in a devastated, war torn country, a 16 year old Stockhausen dedicated himself to surviving and studying, eventually gaining a place at the music school in Cologne. It was to be the platform on which his career as a composer was launched.

By the end of the sixties Stockhausen was enjoying considerable world-wide fame. He spent much of his time touring the world performing with his own Ensemble, visiting a variety of unusual locations, including a set of caves in Lebanon. Donald Macleod is joined once again by composer, writer and broadcaster Robert Worby.

New Year New Music: Saariaho - Emilie

Jonathan Swain presents the Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho's Émilie, recorded at Finnish National Opera, Helsinki, written to a libretto by Amin Maalouf. It is based on the life and writings of Marquise Émilie du Châtelet, the 18th century French mathematician, physicist, and author.

Émilie, premiered in Lyon in 2010, focuses on the love between a man and a woman and also on a passion for knowledge, science and truth. Saariaho says that in Émilie she was above all enchanted by the unusual, conflicting character of this exceptional woman. Émilie is best remembered today as Voltaire's lover rather than for her scientific achievements.

In a room in the Château de Lunéville, Émilie is working feverishly round the clock to complete her French translation of Newton's Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy.

New Generation Thinker Joe Moshenska joins the conversation to explain more about the trip to Spain during which the future Charles I was painted by the Spanish artist.

Curator Liz Gilmore and dealer Julian Hartnoll discuss the British painter John Bratby who was celebrated and seen as an enfant terrible of the art world in the '50s and '60s. He is believed to have painted over 1500 works and an exhibition at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings has drawn upon paintings brought in by members of the public.

Artist Gayle Chong Kwan is working on a project based upon the North Eastern food dish Pan Haggerty. She talks about the walks, videos and photographs she has been creating as part of her residency in East Durham.

Laura Cumming's book is called The Vanishing Man: In Pursuit of Velázquez

John Bratby: Everything But The Kitchen Sink Including The Kitchen Sink runs at the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings from January 30th to April 17th.

She also looks at how minimalism together with the idea of the composer-performer ensemble, changed the history of 20th century music.

The story of new music is peppered with events that have altered the course of musical history. For our New Year New Music season, we asked five Radio 3 presenters to each tell the story of one of these "seismic moments".

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b06tky4h)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Mark Anthony Turnage

9am
My Favourite... Bach Arrangements. A new feature in which Rob and Sarah reveal their favourite recordings of music, connected to a weekly theme. In the week of New Year New Music, Rob features his top arrangements of Bach - all of them made in the last hundred years, and which cast new light on the baroque master. Throughout the week he shares recreations of Bach by Myra Hess (Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring), Ottorino Respighi (Passcaglia and Fugue, BWV582), Robin Holloway (Gilded Goldbergs) and Webern (Ricercar from the Musical Offering).

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

10am
Throughout the week of New Year New Music, five leading composers of the current generation tell Rob about a piece of music that has influenced them, and share one of their own works. Rob talks live to internationally renowned composer Mark Anthony Turnage, whose works express a wide range of emotions ranging from tenderness and loss to aggression. His third opera Anna Nicole made headlines when it premiered at the Royal Opera House in 2011.

10.30am
Rob places Music in Time. Rob goes back to the Baroque with Bach, whose boundary-pushing Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue goes beyond what his contemporaries might have expected from a keyboard work.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is Pierre Monteux, a conductor who was at the cutting edge of new music in the early 20th century. He premiered works by composers who were the movers and shakers of the period, including Debussy, Stravinsky and Ravel. He also brought music to audiences in Paris, Amsterdam, San Francisco, Boston and London. Rob showcases recordings by Monteux ranging from Debussy's Images and Stravinsky's Petrushka to symphonies by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06tl2xw)
Karlheinz Stockhausen (1928-2007)

Towards the Light

New Year New Music

Stockhausen's last thirty years were dominated by a series of seven operas, "Licht" and the 18 completed works in "Klang".

Stockhausen's formative experiences growing up in Nazi Germany show up in his later music. His preoccupation with flight, mechanical mechanisms and the cause and effect of different sounds can all be traced back to his earliest childhood memories. Born in 1928 into a Catholic family, his father, Simon, was a primary school teacher and his mother, Gertrud came from a wealthy farming family. The family lived in some poverty, but his mother had a musical leaning, playing the piano and singing, while his father enjoyed amateur dramatics. Family life was disrupted when his mother needed to be hospitalised for the treatment of her depression. Thereafter family life for Stockhausen was unsettled. His father went to the front as an officer in 1943 and was presumed dead at the end of the war. In 1941, it's thought that Stockhausen's mother had been a victim of Hitler's "euthanasia policy". Now an orphan, in a devastated, war torn country, a 16 year old Stockhausen dedicated himself to surviving and studying, eventually gaining a place at the music school in Cologne. It was to be the platform on which his career as a composer was launched.

In the final part of the series Donald Macleod and composer, writer and broadcaster Robert Worby discuss Stockhausen's two major cycles "Licht" and "Klang", and evaluate the composer's posthumous legacy.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b06tp1wt)
Five Seismic Moments in New Music

Tom Service - Where Have All the Seismic Moments Gone?

Tom Service explores musical creativity and seismic shock in the twenty-first century. By the time the 20th century was 16 years old, music like Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, Strauss's Salome, and Schoenberg's Five Orchestral Pieces had sent shockwaves through the tectonic plates of musical and cultural convention. In ripping up the musical rule-book, these pieces were heard to threaten social and even moral stability as well. So where are the seismic moments of the first 16 years of the 21st century? Why haven't composers been able to write another Rite? Is it because new music has lost its cultural capital? Or is it, rather, that seismic activity is happening even more today than it was in 1916- an endless series of mini-earthquakes rather than a single musical volcano, biding its time until all that creative energy breaks through?

The story of new music is peppered with events that have altered the course of musical history. For our New Year New Music season, we asked five Radio 3 presenters to each tell the story of one of these "seismic moments". From silence and ambient sounds to riot and revolution, these intriguing events have, in different ways, changed the progress of sound and culture - or, as one of our five suggests, have they?

Written and read by Tom Service
Producer: John Goudie.
