SAT 09:00 Record Review (b07f6jj7)
Building a Library: Bach: Funeral Ode for the Queen of Poland

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Building a Library: Jonathan Freeman-Attwood recommends a recording of JS Bach's 'Funeral Ode' for the Queen of Poland BWV198 from among available versions.

This secular cantata was written on the death of Christiane Eberhardine, the Electress of Saxony and Queen of Poland, who was particularly beloved by the people of Saxony for her devotion to her Lutheran faith. Bach employed a rich orchestration and used what was reported to be an "Italian style" of composition. It is one of his very greatest cantatas and deserves to be much better known than it is.

1045

Plus extracts from Cosi fan tutte conducted by Teodor Currentzis.

Until the age of 14, James had no formal academic musical education or dedicated mentoring. Aged 18 he stopped playing the piano entirely for a decade. Since returning to the piano, he has released five albums, all of which have topped the iTunes classical charts. His bestselling memoir, Instrumental, is a moving and compelling story that was almost banned until the Supreme Court unanimously overthrew an injunction in May 2015. He has performed in venues around the world from the Barbican, Roundhouse, Royal Albert Hall, Latitude Festival, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Soho Theatre in the UK to halls in Paris, Australia, Hong Kong, Chicago, Vienna and more.

James will be back next week with another edition of Saturday Classics.

Verdi's I due Foscari

Donald Macleod presents Verdi's I due Foscari recorded at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Placido Domingo stars as Francesco Foscari, Doge of Venice, and Francesco Meli is his son in this dark tale of secrecy, corruption and murder. Verdi's sixth opera, it has often been neglected compared to some of his later works. The Doge's son, Jacopo Foscari has been jailed and is due to be sentenced. The Doge has the final power of authority and he has to choose between his feelings as a father and his duty of office, but underneath lies a deeper feud between the Foscari and Loredano families.

Antonio Pappano conducts this production recorded in October 2014. With accompanying cast interviews and commentary from Verdi expert, Roger Parker.

SAT 21:15 Between the Ears (b07f6jjp)
The Impossible Book

Peter Blegvad's radiophonic drama concerns a writer beset by hallucinations on a train travelling through time as well as space, and between parallel realities.

The piece engages with the question 'who has the right to write?', and how might that right be earned? In totalitarian regimes writers are denied freedom of expression, but individually writers often inhibit or censor themselves, feeling that their words lack value or authority.

As William Burroughs put it: "You pay or you get nothing. You can't dodge the Muse's check. The Muse don't like welshers. A writer becomes a writer by PAYING..." But Blegvad's writer seems to be writing/riding for free, gratis. He's hiding on the train without a ticket. The penalty he risks if caught is "rendition to another zone/where due process is unknown" - a terrifying prospect.

He's on the run from the authorities - the Conductor played by Andy Partridge of XTC and the Sheriff played by David Thomas of Père Ubu. The two legendary musicians contribute memorable comic cameos. The piece ends when Blegvad's 'free writer' is awarded a dubious accolade by Agatha Christie, played by Harriet Walter.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b07f6jvd)
Mark Simpson and Pleasure

Tom McKinney introduces a programme of music by Mark Simpson, including his new opera "Pleasure", recorded last month at Opera North in Leeds. The one-act opera is set in a gay nightclub "somewhere in England" and explores ideas of pleasure as an escape from reality, rejection and reconciliation.

The production is a joint venture between Opera North, Aldeburgh Music and The Royal Opera and features a libretto by poet Melanie Challenger.

Nathan .... Timothy Nelson
Val ..... Lesley Garrett
Anna Fewmore ..... Steven Page
Matthew ..... Nick Pritchard

Band: Psappha, conducted by Nicholas Kok

The programme also features a selection of chamber music from Mark Simpson's recently released album "Night Music".

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07f6l5p)
John Sutherland

The scholar and critic John Sutherland talks to Michael Berkeley about his passions for film, music, and Victorian literature.

An unsuccessful career at school and a backbreaking job laying railway tracks were an unlikely start in life for the future Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus of Modern English Literature at University College London.

John Sutherland is hugely respected for his academic work on Victorian literature, but his infectious passion for books has led him to write for a popular audience too - he is a regular contributor to the Guardian and other papers, and his many books include Can Jane Eyre Be Happy?, How to Read a Novel, and most recently an entertaining quiz book: How Good is Your Grammar?

He talks to Michael about his difficult childhood, the later devastating effects of alcoholism, and the books and music that he's loved throughout his life - including Vaughan Williams, Britten and Mahler.

Producer: Jane Greenwood
A Loftus Production for BBC Radio 3.


SUN 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

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07f6mh4)
How do you describe a teaspoon in music?

Can you describe a teaspoon in music? Why would you even want to? Tom Service explores how music is able to tell stories in sound

Tom is joined by musicologist Ken Hamilton for a journey through musical history to reveal music's ability to describe the most everyday actions and the most heartfelt emotions.

From Vivaldi and Beethoven, to the epic tone poems of Richard Strauss (which may or may not contain teaspoons), to Hollywood blockbusters - how does music paint those pictures in our mind, and do those pictures always look the same?

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.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b07f6mh6)

Producer: Tim Allen


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b07f6mh8)
Antonio Carlos Gomes, the Brazilian Who Conquered La Scala

Travelling to both Brazil and Milan, the musician and broadcaster Fabio Zanon tells the remarkable story of the mixed-race Brazilian composer Carlos Gomes, who conquered La Scala in the second half of the 19th century with operas in the Italian style, yet full of the exotic flavours of his homeland, such as Il Guarany and Lo Schiavo (The Slave). The programme explores the nature of his success, which was due to his natural talent, to the connections he was able to make in Italian circles, and also - in no small measure - to his personal physical appearance. Gomes, who lived in Italy for three decades, kept travelling back to Brazil to show his work and to be in touch with the tense political and social situation in the country as a new republic, free of slavery, was emerging. He became an unprecedented national hero in the process, but as the programme examines, his image experienced a dramatic change during the early 20th century, when new nationalistic winds favoured a different kind of music. It's only recently that his image has been restored nearly to his former glory, not least by the efforts of people like Placido Domingo, who has starred in international mega-productions of Il Guarany, on both sides of the Atlantic.

Remorse, or, The Sorrows of Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Samuel Taylor Coleridge promised to be the genius of his generation, but his creative achievement was contaminated by chronic procrastination, addiction and hallucination. Robin Brooks's inventive play tells the story of Coleridge's ill-fated friendship with William Wordsworth and his infatuation with Sara Hutchinson.

At the crisis of a major breakdown, and suffering from a massive laudanum overdose, Coleridge is forced to review the train-wreck of his life. In an opium nightmare his crimes rise up to accuse him, and a court of friends and enemies is assembled to review the experiences that have brought him to this pass.

Johann Strauss I and II

Invitation to the Waltz

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod charts the rise of Johann Strauss I and the emergence of the waltz from a rustic village dance into an elegant art-form sweeping Europe.

From its origins in the simple country dancing which came down river from the Black Forest, the waltz grew to become the signature tune of Viennese high society, and the Strauss family its most exuberant exponents. Johann Strauss the elder soon came to dominate the scene with his own high-octane orchestra and his ever-more sophisticated compositions. The highest levels of European society - including Queen Victoria - tripped the light fantastic to the music of the man who became known as the Waltz King.

Les Siecles at the Aldeburgh Festival

Les Siècles perform Rameau and Ravel at the Aldeburgh Festival.
This leading French orchestra performs the music of two French master colourists on the sorts of instruments that the composers themselves would have known. Rameau's Daphne is celebrated in a vibrant score with twenty or so dance movements whilst Ravel's 'choreographed symphony' contrasts languid eroticism with a startling brutality. The famous sunrise promises to be a truly magical experience.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b07f6nvy)
The Shopping News

Rome

Joanna Robertson is a journalist and mother who has lived in five foreign countries, where she has observed that local shopping habits tell you a lot about the place. In these Essays, she argues that when people go shopping, they don't just purchase goods, they also buy into something else. Joanna Robertson takes us shopping with the locals and explores these ulterior motives and what they reveal about the residents of five cities: Rome, New York, Berlin, Tirana and Joanna's current home, Paris.

When Romans shop for traditional foods and delicacies in local family-run businesses, they also buy into a local identity - that's now under threat.

Italy was only unified in the nineteenth century, and local roots and identities often go deeper than national ones. One way that Romans express and nourish this local identity is by shopping in traditional family-run businesses that take pride in their products.
The "forno" bakery on Campo de' Fiori has counted the Borgias and Rossini among its regulars. In the Trastevere area, Romans queue up for the pizzas and black cherry tarts of the Boccioni kosher bakery that dates back to the eighteenth century.
However, many traditional shops are selling up because the children head into professions rather than behind the counter, or because of cash offers from mysterious buyers that the owners can't refuse. Previously legitimate family businesses like bars and restaurants are being taken over by the mafia, who keep the names and decor, but put in their own staff, and use ingredients from mafia controlled farms.
Romans are deeply distressed by how unrecognisable their city has become, and the erosion of identity that this has brought.

Producer: Arlene Gregorius.

Johann Strauss I and II

Father and Son

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod examines the turbulent relationship of Strauss father and son, their musical rivalry, and their involvement in the revolutions of 1848.

The Strauss family was never a model of happy cohesion: Johann the Elder forbade the son from following him into the profession, but the encouragement of his neglected mother led Johann the Younger to ignore his father's disapproval and forge his own path as composer and performer. Bitterness ensued, and acquired a political edge during the 1848 revolutions. Johann Vater was very much an establishment figure, deeply embedded with the unfashionable ancien regime, and he wrote unashamedly bombastic music supporting the conservative cause. His son however took sides with the trendy young rebels, and family peace only came with Johann senior's death.

Johann Strauss I and II

Having a Ball

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod relishes the highly productive, joyous decade in which Strauss II's waltzes transcended their original function to become grand concert works.

The 1860s were a glorious ten years in which Johann Strauss II produced some of his most remarkable music, transforming the waltz he'd inherited from his father from a more civilised version of a country dance, into a highly sophisticated concert piece with endlessly long phrases, depth, and complexity: music which has stood the test of time and is an enduring part of Vienna's cultural heritage.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b07f6r7f)
The Shopping News

Berlin

Joanna Robertson is a journalist and mother who has lived in five foreign countries, where she has observed that local shopping habits tell you a lot about the place. In these Essays, she argues that when people go shopping, they don't just purchase goods, they also buy into something else. Joanna Robertson takes us shopping with the locals and explores these ulterior motives and what they reveal about the residents of five cities: Rome, New York, Berlin, Tirana and Joanna's current home, Paris.

In this edition, she finds that shopping for toys in Berlin reveals an attitude to childhood and nature that's unique to Germany. Germany's concept of nature is deeply rooted in the concepts of nineteenth-century German Romanticism, which in turn is reflected in German toys, and childhood. The child is the Wanderer, journeying through the boundless realms of creativity and dreams, close to the beauty, teachings and wonders of Nature. It's a childhood of great freedom, and responsibility.

Johann Strauss I and II

On the Stage

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod explores Johann II's move away from the dance hall to write a stream of operettas, most of which are now forgotten.

It was Johann Strauss II's wife who first twisted his arm to get him writing for the stage. Relieving himself of relentless waltz-conducting duties, Strauss now became converted to the art form and in the 1870s and 1880s turned out a string of operetta hits, most of which are now forgotten. The great exceptions are Die Fledermaus and Zigeunerbaron.

Joanna Robertson takes us shopping and explores these ulterior motives and what they reveal about the residents of five cities: Rome, New York, Berlin, Tirana and Joanna's current home, Paris.

In Tirana, after the fall of Communism, people dream of buying luxuries and achieving the kind of wealth they've seen on Italian TV. They buy and sell what they can, and are inventive about ways to make money, particularly in the main square. Someone takes their bathroom scales and charges customers ten lek a go to weigh themselves. Whole families come and see it as a treat. But when virtually the entire nation tries to finance its dreams of wealth through pyramid schemes, the dreams turn into nightmares. In the town of Gramsh, virtually all that remains for sale - are guns.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b07f6q22)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Lee Child

9am
My favourite... rondos. Rob shares his favourite rondos, a musical form which is characterised by a recurring theme, with examples ranging from Beethoven's madcap Rage Over A Lost Penny and Saint-Saëns's show-stopping Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso to the more reflective Rondo in A minor, K.511 by Mozart and evergreen examples by Schubert and Dvorak. The line-up features performances by Mitsuko Uchida, Paul Tortelier, Gidon Kremer, Valentina Lisitsa and Jascha Heifetz.

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

10am
Rob's guest is the thriller writer Lee Child. Best known as the creator of the ex-military drifter, Jack Reacher, Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. His books consistently make number one in the hardback and paperback bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic and are translated into forty languages. He recently won the CWA's Diamond Dagger for a writer of an outstanding body of crime fiction. Lee will be sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, including works by Hildegard of Bingen, Delibes and Beethoven, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Rob features a piece from the BBC4 series Revolution & Romance: Musical Masters of the 19th century. He explores the way Richard Strauss expanded the classical symphony orchestra to become capable of expressing his grand Romantic conceptions, as heard in his philosophical tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra.

11.05am
Rob's artist of the week is Vladimir Horowitz, a pianist who could make a piano sound like an orchestra. Rob delves into the archives of this internationally renowned pianist, sharing recordings including his performance of Chopin's Funeral March Sonata, Fauré's crystalline and plangent Nocturne No.13, Liszt's foreboding portrayal of Oberman's Valley from his Années de Pélèrinage, and his virtuosic treatment of melodies from Bizet's Carmen.

Beethoven
Piano Sonata in D major, Op.10 No.3
Vladimir Horowitz (piano).


FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07f6q5g)
Johann Strauss I and II

German Emperor

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod finds out how Strauss II, Austrian national hero enjoying the adulation of Europe, became a German citizen. Unknown to Strauss, the Nazis would later "alter" his ancestry.

In order to marry his third wife, Strauss converted to Protestantism and became a German citizen. He still longed to write a "serious" comic opera, but accolades from across the globe poured in as Vienna celebrated the anniversary of the first performance of its favoured son. In a bizarre twist of history however, Strauss's ancestry would later be falsely doctored by the Nazis.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b07f6r0p)
BBC Symphony Orchestra and Oliver Knussen at the Aldeburgh Festival

The BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Oliver Knussen live from Snape Maltings Concert Hall during the Aldeburgh Festival. With world premieres of works by Charlotte Bray and Gary Carpenter, plus works by Bach, Berg, Butterworth and Elliott Carter.

Presented by Christopher Cook

Bach (orch. Elgar): Fantasia and Fugue in C minor (BWV.537)
Butterworth: A Shropshire Lad
Gary Carpenter: Willie Stock (world premiere)

c. 8.20pm
Interval: Suffolk-inspired folksong with works by Moeran, Elizabeth Poston and Thomas Vautor, plus folk music from the singing pubs along Aldeburgh's coastline, and fiddle player Harkie Nesling.

c. 8.40pm
Carter: Sound Fields
Charlotte Bray: Stone Dancer (world premiere)
Berg: Three Pieces for Orchestra, Op. 6

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Oliver Knussen (conductor)

It's almost impossible to listen to Butterworth and Berg without our knowledge of things to come. Is the Englishman's dreamily alluring orchestral rhapsody of 1912 an eerie foreboding of his own death in World War I? Is the shrill, titanic tussle of of the march which concludes Berg's Three pieces for Orchestra, written 1913-15, a premonition of the impending cataclysm? There are other influences - the poignancy of A.E. Housman's elegiac poems, the unmistakable imprint of Mahler on Berg's giant canvas. And the imaginative use of the orchestra - as shared by Elgar orchestrating Bach, Charlotte Bray, and Gary Carpenter.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b07f6r5b)
Elena Lappin, Mark Waldron, Gemma Ray, Matthew and Michael Dickman

Ian's guests this week include the writer Elena Lappin. Elena is a writer, editor and translator who speaks five languages, Russian, Czech, German, Hebrew, and English. Elena's memoir 'What Language Do I Dream In?' (Virago) asks how you find a voice in a language that is not your own.

Mark Waldron is a poet whose poems are full of comic imagery, but are never really joking. His latest collection 'Meanwhile, Trees' is published by Bloodaxe.

Gemma Ray is a singer-songwriter who will be performing songs from her new album 'The Exodus Suite'.

Matthew and Michael Dickman are twins. Although they write very different kinds of poetry, they are united by the unflinching poems that make up their join collection 'Brother' (Faber), a book that examines the suicide of their older brother.

Producer: Cecile Wright.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b07f6r7k)
The Shopping News

The Shopping News: Paris

Joanna Robertson is a journalist and mother who has lived in five foreign countries, where she has observed that local shopping habits tell you a lot about the place. In these Essays, she argues that when people go shopping, they don't just purchase goods, they also buy into something else. Joanna Robertson takes us shopping with the locals and explores these ulterior motives and what they reveal about the residents of five cities: Rome, New York, Berlin, Tirana and Joanna's current home, Paris.

When Parisians shop for, or sell, traditional, locally produced high-quality food, it's not just because they revere it, but also because it's part of a deeply entrenched culture that dates back to the nineteenth century. Owners of specialist food shops like Madame Acabo and her to-die-for chocolates are the heirs of key individuals like the lawyer, politician and gastronome of genius, Brillat-Savarin (whose Physiology of Taste, published in 1825, has never been out of print), and the aristocrat Grimod de la ReyniÃre who wrote not only gastronomic almanacs and journals, but also reviews of the new phenomenon called "le restaurant" - one of which, a very successful one using only locally sourced ingredients, he set up himself.

Producer: Arlene Gregorius.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b07f6rvv)
