SAT 09:00 Record Review (b07dk7kk)
Building a Library: Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 6, Op 74 (Pathetique)

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Building a Library: Marina Frolova-Walker recommends a recording of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, Op. 74, 'Pathétique' from among available versions.

'It was not exactly a failure' Tchaikovsky reported to his publisher after the 1893 premiere of his final completed symphony. But having 'shed many tears' during its composition reflecting on the Pathétique's never-to-be-revealed programme 'saturated with subjective feeling', the neurotic, hypersensitive composer was surprisingly unconcerned with the public's lukewarm reaction. Tchaikovsky knew it was his best work - an opinion which was very soon vindicated (he was dead nine days after he conducted the first performance), as his symphony fast became a concert hall staple and was even adopted as a symphonic model by fellow neurotic Gustav Mahler. And in both the last century and this one, it has become among the most recorded symphonies in the catalogue, prey to young Turks and grizzled maestros alike.

1045
Stephen Johnson assesses Rattle's latest cycle of Beethoven symphonies recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic and sees if it trumps his previous set with the Vienna Philharmonic.

SAT 19:00 Opera on 3 (b07dk7l0)
Enescu's Oedipe

Oedipus, the man who unwittingly murdered his father and married his mother is one of the most resonant mythical archetypes of Western culture; and tonight's live relay from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden is an opportunity to hear a rare performance of Romanian composer Georges Enescu's powerful retelling of the story in his opera, Oedipe. Whereas the great dramatists of Ancient Greece focused on specific events in the life of Oedipus, Enescu's opera covers the whole narrative from birth to death. The highly individual musical style combines a rich harmonic idiom with subtle orchestration. The gorgeous, shimmering sounds of the scene with the Sphinx is one of the highlights of the score. This new production from the iconoclastic Catalan company, La Fura dels Baus, is conducted by Leo Hussain with a cast that includes Johan Reuter, John Tomlinson, Sophie Bevan, Sarah Connolly and Marie-Nicole Lemieux.

Presented by Andrew McGregor who is joined by composer and broadcaster William Mival to discuss the opera; including interviews with members of the cast.

His young artist is pianist Kit Armstrong, and the British season continues with Walton's Partita, in a performance by George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07dkbz8)
Tanita Tikaram

Tanita Tikaram became an overnight success when she was only a teenager; her debut album "Ancient Heart" sold four million copies in the late 80s and gave her hit singles like 'Twist in My Sobriety'. Since then she's gone on to release eight more albums, with some rather interesting silences in between - when she almost gave up on music altogether. In 2016 she toured Europe with her ninth album, 'Closer to the People'.

In Private Passions, Tanita Tikaram talks to Michael Berkeley about the effect of that massive early success, and about going to live in Italy to escape the rock music world. It was a wilderness moment, when she wasn't even sure she should be a musician. At this point, in her 30s, she began to discover classical music, through the work of legendary performers like pianists Rosalyn Tureck and Clara Haskil. She talks about how Bach opened up a new musical world to her, and how listening to classical music - and taking classical singing lessons - helps her find her "groove" when she is composing her own songs.

With Bach, Vivaldi, Ravel, Mozart's Piano Concerto No.23, Canteloube's Songs of the Auvergne, and Duke Ellington.

Produced by Elizabeth Burke

A Loftus Media production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07dkbzg)
How Do You Make a National Anthem?

Tom Service on the music, meaning and occasional madness of the world's national anthems. How are they chosen, what are they for, and is the music any good?

He's joined by writer Alex Marshall, author of the book "Republic or Death, Travels in Search of National Anthems",and by soprano Elin Manahan Thomas who looks at why some of them are easier to sing than others...

Rethink Music, with The Listening Service.

Each week, Tom aims to open our ears to different ways of imagining a musical idea, a work, or a musical conundrum, on the premise that "to listen" is a decidedly active verb.

How does music connect with us, make us feel that gamut of sensations from the fiercely passionate to the rationally intellectual, from the expressively poetic to the overwhelmingly visceral? What's happening in the pieces we love that takes us on that emotional rollercoaster? And what's going on in our brains when we hear them?

When we listen - really listen - we're not just attending to the way that songs, symphonies, and string quartets work as collections of notes and melodies. We're also creating meanings and connections that reverberate powerfully with other worlds of ideas, of history and culture, as well as the widest range of musical genres. We're engaging the world with our ears. The Listening Service aims to help make those connections, to listen actively.

James Joyce's Dubliners

James Joyce went to extraordinary lengths to publish his first book, Dubliners. He personally rescued the manuscript from fire, lost a major standoff with his publishers over revisions, orchestrated a press campaign, wrote a despairing letter to the king of England and left Ireland for good. Sarah Dillon recounts the story, investigates the manuscripts and sees how Joyce's astonishing literary career nearly fell at the first hurdle.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b03hk7r5)
Bix: Singing the Blues

The jazz musician Bix Beiderbecke (1903-1931) has been described as a genius: how did he manage to create such beautiful and influential music with such a troubled mind?

Apart from their genius, the musicians Bix Beiderbecke and Louis Armstrong had little in common. Armstrong was black and Beiderbecke was white and musical segregation was complete in the 1920's. Armstrong would go on to be one of the first musicians to challenge this racial divide, and his life story is well documented. Beiderbecke was an alcoholic who died young â€" but perhaps his greatest tragedy was that he never got to play with the best â€" because in his view the best were black.

Bix and Louis met on several occasions but only ever played together once - in a private, after-hours session. Creating a fictionalised version of that meeting, Robert Forrest's play explores the heart and mind of Bix Beiderbecke and his relationship with Louis Armstrong.

After being close to death in 1959, Louis Armstrong is quoted as saying,
'Bix tried to get me a gig in Gabriel's band last night, but it didn't work out.'.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00y6hw9)
Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816)

Episode 1

Donald Macleod introduces the life and music of the Italian composer whose comic operas were the toast of some of the greatest world leaders of the day.

Giovanni Paisiello was one of the most popular opera composers of his day, feted all over Europe, not least by the greatest world leaders of the day including Napoleon, Catherine the Great and Emperor Joseph II. And yet, other than a handful of operatic arias, he's virtually unknown today. Donald Macleod looks at the life and times of this prolific composer who produced nearly 100 operas and made a significant contribution to the development of opera.

Paisiello was an ambitious young man - although he was already making a name for himself around Italy, he was determined to win the hearts and minds of the Neapolitan court, one of the most flourishing centres of musical excellence in Europe at that time. In the first programme, Donald Macleod introduces excerpts from two of his comic operas - 'Don Chisciotte della Mancia', one of the first to find favour with the King of Naples, and 'La Frascatana', with which Paisiello launched his international career.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b07dkdt8)
Wigmore Hall Mondays: Lars Vogt

From Wigmore Hall, London, Lars Vogt performs Bach's extraordinary Goldberg Variations.

The story of the Goldberg Variations begins in Leipzig when Count Hermann Karl von Keyserlingk, the Russian ambassador to Saxony, brought the young composer and performer, Johann Gottleib Goldberg to Bach for music lessons. Keyserlingk mentioned that he suffered from insomnia and would like some keyboard pieces for Goldberg to play when he was unable to sleep, and so Bach apparently composed the Goldberg variations. Whether the story is true or not, Bach did create a masterpiece of thirty variations based on the opening aria.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

MON 22:45 The Essay (b07dkdxp)
Get Playing

Alistair McGowan on playing the Piano

As part of the BBC Music Get Playing, supporting amateur music making around the UK, 5 leading writers and artists contribute an Essay in this series, in which they talk about their little-known passions for playing an instrument.

In the first programme, the impressionist, actor and writer Alistair McGowan describes his attempts to relearn the piano. He started learning as a child but gave it up to play football instead. He tried it again in his 30s but stopped when his TV series "The Big Impression" took over. Then, later on, after a midnight piano lesson on a cruise ship, he began in earnest again and discovered a new world of music-making.

Alistair is fascinated by short pieces in particular. His special favourites are the pieces he heard his mother play and also ones he has discovered on piano courses and through hearing them on the radio. A tiny nugget of Satie, Mompou or John Field carries for him all the weight of human experience and channels a musical history into one small but perfect form.

Episode 2

When Catherine the Great invited Paisiello to become musical director of her court in St Petersburg he must have jumped at the chance. It was his first official appointment and with it came both security and prestige. Paisiello quickly became a favourite of the court, thanks to the steady stream of comic operas he produced there. Donald Macleod introduces two of them: 'I filosofi immaginari' - a great favourite of Catherine's, and 'La serva padrona', which recycled the libretto famously set by Pergolesi 50 years earlier.

Live from BBC Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff, Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Elgar's ever-popular Cello Concerto with soloist Alban Gerhardt, the composer's passionate outpouring of grief and disillusionment in the wake of the First World War. In contrast, Walton's riotous overture celebrates the 70th anniversary of the founding of Johannesburg, complete with African rhythms. John Pickard's new work is, perhaps surprisingly in the 21st century, still a traditional symphony. It features three sets of timpani spatially separated across the stage, not simply used to create a lot of noise, but to explore melodic lines between the three players.

Presented by Nicola Hewyood Thomas

Walton: Johannesburg Festival Overture

Get Playing: Joanne Harris on playing the flute and bass guitar

As part of BBC Music Get Playing, supporting amateur music making around the UK, 5 leading writers and artists contribute an Essay in this series, in which they talk about their little-known passions for playing an instrument.

In the second programme, the award-winning novelist Joanne Harris (best known for her novel "Chocolat") describes how she learned to play the flute as a child. This was followed by the bass guitar which she began after falling in love with a drummer in a band and wanting to join.

When she heard the story told by her grandfather of how he had refused to hand his double bass over to a Nazi soldier in occupied France, the young Joanne Harris realised that a musical instrument could be a powerful force. She began playing herself, first the flute and then, as a 16 year old, the bass guitar. She's continued to play both instruments and is now developing a way of telling stories in performances which incorporates music.

In this Essay, Joanne tells the story of her performing life and considers the way in which music can be an essential part of storytelling.

Royal Festival Hall Organ Recital - Margaret Phillips

Recorded at the Royal Festival Hall

Margaret Phillips returns to Royal Festival Hall as part of the Southbank's International Organ Series.

In a mostly French programme she contrasts music from the 20th century with a work by a composer from the French baroque, Nicolas de Grigny, who was organist at Rheims cathedral. Jean Guillou's colourful Variations explore the nethermost regions of the Royal Festival Hall organ's vast tonal resources, and the Duruflé work is one of the most beautiful 20th century additions to the organ's repertoire. Bach's Piece d'Orgue completes the programme - a work in which he pays homage to the French baroque style.

Nicolas de Grigny: Veni creator
Johann Sebastian Bach: Fantasia in G (Piece d'orgue) BWV.572
Maurice Duruflé: Prelude, adagio et choral varié sur le thème du Veni creator, Op.4

Interval - Interval music

Jean Guillou: 18 Variations, Op.3
Marcel Dupré: Prelude and Fugue in G minor, Op.7 No.3

The glorious sound of the Royal Festival Hall organ was first heard in March 1954. Sixty years later, in 2014, it was restored to its former glory by Harrison & Harrison Ltd. This organ series looks both to the history and the future of this fascinating instrument.

Get Playing: Poet Fiona Sampson on playing the violin

As part of BBC Music Get Playing, supporting amateur music making around the UK, 5 leading writers and artists contribute an Essay in this series, in which they talk about their little-known passions for playing an instrument.

In the third programme of the series, the poet Fiona Sampson explores how playing the violin to professional standard in her youth has informed her life and work today.

She relives her youth spent at summer schools and in orchestras and describes playing the violin in the practice rooms at the Royal Academy of Music.

And she describes how the shape that that her body made around the violin stays with her wherever she goes.

Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816)

Episode 4

In 1784, after eight years in Russia, Paisiello was at long last offered an appointment back in Naples, as court composer of dramatic music. On his way back home, Paisiello stopped off in Vienna, where he composed the opera 'Il re Teodoro a Venezia' for another great supporter of his, Emperor Joseph II. Donald introduces the overture from this popular work, an excerpt from 'I giuochi d'Agrigento', written for the inauguration of La Fenice Opera House in Venice, part of an opera to celebrate a major dynastic wedding - 'La Daunia felice', and, by way of stark contrast, the pared-down beauty of Paisiello's sacred work 'Christus', written for Holy Week in 1794.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00y6lv1)
Giovanni Paisiello (1740-1816)

Episode 5

Paisiello's final years took place against a backdrop of political turmoil. Around the turn of the century, his home town of Naples was twice invaded by the French. Paisiello opted to remain behind and work for the new republican state. When the King of Naples was restored to the throne the second time, he turned his back on Paisiello, leaving him in a state of poverty and disgrace for the remaining months of his life. Donald introduces music from Paisiello's final years, including the overture to 'Proserpina', dedicated to his friend and supporter, Napoleon Bonaparte, an excerpt from his penultimate stage work 'Il passaggio de Monte San Bernardo' composed to honour Napoleon's brother Joseph, and part of the Mass for the Dead dedicated to members of the Neapolitan royal family.

Get Playing: Alexander McCall Smith on the saxophone and the Really Terrible Orchestra

As part of BBC Music Get Playing, supporting amateur music making around the UK this summer, 5 leading writers and artists contribute an Essay in this series, in which they talk about their little-known passions for playing an instrument.

In the final programme of the series, the writer Alexander McCall Smith, author of "The No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" describes how he learned to play saxophone which led to him starting The Really Terrible Orchestra.

His career as an amateur saxophonist began with lessons' from his wife's flute teacher and then, during a stay in the US, he began to assemble a collection of saxophones, including a fine bass instrument.

After returning home to Edinburgh, Alexander decided that he should encourage other amateur musicians to play together, no matter what their standard, and the Really Terrible Orchestra was born. In spite of its name, it has performed in concert halls to packed houses.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.
