SAT 09:00 Record Review (b07h15ch)
Building a Library: Victoria's Masses

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Building a Library: Tess Knighton comes up with a recommendation for Victoria's Masses from among available versions.

One of eleven children, Spaniard Tomás Luis de Victoria's family was peppered with high-achievers (cousins included a naval commander, a Jesuit pioneer in the New World and a successful Florentine-based merchant who married into the Medicis). But Tomás trumped them all to become one of the greatest church composers of Renaissance Europe, famous for the intensity of his music, including his Mass settings. Perhaps surprisingly, the recording catalogue reflects a still-current tradition of Victoria performance begun at Westminster Cathedral at the end of the nineteenth century, and a comparative dearth of Iberian performances of the Masses.

1030
Gillian Moore rounds-up recent recordings of twentieth- and twenty-first century chamber music.

Disc of the Week: Andrew makes a personal choice from among the latest outstanding releases.

Joe Temperley

Claire Martin looks back at the career of the late UK saxophonist Joe Temperley including tributes from trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, saxophonist Tommy Smith and jazz educator Richard Michael. Joe Temperley started playing the saxophone at the age of 14 and played with the orchestras and groups of some of the biggest names in jazz including Humphrey Lyttelton, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Joe Henderson and Duke Ellington. He was an original member of one of the leading big bands in the world, the New York-based Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra. Richard Michael, our key contributor for this special edition, worked closely with Joe when he was a guest mentor with the Fife Youth Jazz Orchestra and shares his memories of working with Joe. He also selects some of his favourite Temperley recordings as well as navigating us through BBC archive recordings, including Joe performing with Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra plus a homecoming performance in Lochgelly, Fife, with pianist Brian Kellock.


SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b07h15d6)
Peter Eotvos - Three Sisters

Peter Eötvös's opera Three Sisters was recorded in March at the Vienna State Opera. Based on the play by Chekhov, the opera explores the complex love conflicts of three sisters in the Prozorov family, set in an oppressing Russian provincial atmosphere at the beginning of the 20th century. Departing from Chekhov, Eötvös divides the piece into three sequences, each representing the same events as seen by three different characters. Eötvös adds to the psychological tension of Chekhov's drama by providing a back-stage orchestra which complements a smaller ensemble in the pit. In the title roles are the soprano Aida Garifullina as Irina and mezzo-sopranos Margarita Gritskova as Mascha and Ilseyar Khayrullova as Olga. The chorus and orchestra of the Vienna State Opera are conducted back-stage by Jonathan Stockhammer, while the composer himself directs the ensemble in the pit. Presented by Christopher Cook.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b05wyjrj)
The Scrapbook: Memoirs of a Forensic Investigator

Jack Sturiano is no stranger to death.

Originally from the USA, Jack served in the Vietnam War as a medic, treating soldiers and Vietnamese villagers alike, sometimes under enemy fire. After the war he became a Forensic Investigator. The FI is called out to fatal accidents, suicides and any unexplained death to pronounce the victim dead and to check there is nothing suspicious. Jack calls himself a modern day Charon and has witnessed thousands of scenes of tragedy, or stupidity, or plain bad luck.

Many times when driving to an accident late at night Jack would play a CD of his favourite movie, Taxi Driver, which starred Robert De Niro as a Vietnam Veteran who didn't adjust particularly well to life after the war.

Jack got fed up living in the USA and now lives in Ypres, Belgium. Producer Matt Thompson travelled to Ypres to record Jack and a selection of his self-published stories for 'The Empath'.

What is a life like spent in the company of the dead?


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b07h15d9)
John Cage's Indeterminacy

Comedian Stewart Lee and improvisers Steve Beresford and Tania Chen perform their interpretation of John Cage's 1959 recording Indeterminacy in a performance given at London's Cafe Oto in April. Robert Worby talks to the trio about how they approached the work, which involves the carefully timed reading of randomly selected stories by Cage - personal musings on subjects ranging from mushroom identification to music lessons with Arnold Schoenberg - to a disconnected musical accompaniment. The concert also features works for piano and electronics by Cage and Tania Chen, performed by Chen alongside American experimentalist Jon Leidecker.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07h67w9)
Glenda Jackson

For three decades Glenda Jackson was one of our most acclaimed actors, winning BAFTAs, Golden Globes and Emmys, and two Oscars - for Women in Love and for A Touch of Class. And alongside her film career were ground-breaking stage performances for directors such as Peter Brook and Peter Hall, and a television career which included an astonishing portrayal of Elizabeth I - a performance few of us will forget.

But in 1992 she gave it all up to become the Labour MP for Hampstead and Highgate, eventually becoming a Junior Transport Minister. She stepped down as an MP last year, two days before her 79th birthday, and now, after a 24-year gap, she's back on stage this autumn playing King Lear at the Old Vic.

Glenda talks to Michael Berkeley about researching Elizabeth I, arguing with Ken Russell about Shostakovich, and how she turned down tickets to the Proms, prefering to listen on the radio at home.

Her love of 20th-century music shines through with pieces by Stravinsky, Vaughan Williams, John Adams, Steve Reich and Stevie Wonder.

Beethoven - Hero or Villain?

Presented by Tom Service

Beethoven lived in an age of revolution and his music has long been associated with heroism. But does posterity's casting of Beethoven as a hero mean that we miss crucial things in the music of others, or even of Beethoven himself? Is he a musical hero or a musical villain? And what does Beethoven have to say about heroines?

Rethink music, with The Listening Service.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b07h68th)
Sherlock, Sigmund and Signor Morelli

Sigmund Freud and Sherlock Holmes - two of the most brilliant minds of the 19th century - one was fictional and the other real - both celebrated for their detective skills. But the third man in the title of this programme.... Signor Morelli, Giovanni Morelli...?

He links Holmes and Freud. He might have inspired them both. Who was he?

Acclaimed author and game writer, Naomi Alderman , brings to life the long-overlooked tale of how art historian Giovanni Morelli (1816-1891) formulated a new theory of attribution in the visual arts - through his close analysis of detail. Is that a Botticelli ear, or a Titian ear?

It's a process which continues to this day, and has played a vital role in the market for Old Masters. In the mid-19th century, Morelli's eye proved invaluable to museums in Europe, as he sifted through their collections. Previously, art historians had relied on documentary evidence to confirm the creator of a painting or drawing - or had hoped to find similarities by examining settings or subject matter. Morelli's emphasis on the tiniest details - the painting of hands and ears in particular - was revolutionary.

Sculptor Eleanor Crook takes Naomi on a tour of the V and A, putting the so called 'Morelli method' into action.

The great historian, Professor Carlo Ginzburg, believes that Morelli may also have inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sigmund Freud in their creations - both the detective Sherlock Holmes, and the unconscious 'tell'.

Novelist and playwright Simon Brett, describes Sherlock Holmes in action: "As a medical man, you are aware, Watson, that there is no part of the human body which varies so much as the human ear. Each ear is as a rule quite distinctive, and differs from all other ones." Our medical man is Mr Donald Sammut, Morelli enthusiast and hand surgeon, who also sketches the details of every hand he operates on.

Dr Brett Kahr introduces Naomi to the influence Morelli had over Freud's thinking, as she pulls his book from the shelves of the famous study in the Freud Museum.

Dr Valentina Locatelli and Luke Uglow reveals some surprising details in his rather mysterious life, whilst painter Daniel Easterbrook discusses his deep connection the work of the artists Giorgione, who Morelli famously and dramatically attributed the Dresden Venus.

Naomi Alderman discusses the 'Morelli method' with Director of the Warburg Institute, Professor David Freedberg, and art historian Peter Higginson, and picks apart the use of detail with Phillipa Perry, an important key in the understanding of art and ourselves, a trajectory which takes us to the heart of the modern age.

For a man of such unexpected influence, Morelli has slipped off the cultural map - but here's a chance to restore him to his rightful place.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b048bh41)
Life in the Tomb

A masterwork of Greek fiction, Life in the Tomb provides a different perspective on the anniversary of the Great War. This new dramatisation from leading playwright April De Angelis in her first radio dramatisation features an original score by award winning composer Errollyn Wallen.

Originally published as extracts in a national Greek newspaper, the book takes the form of a series of letters from a young soldier back to his girlfriend in Lesvos, as his platoon moves deeper into trench warfare. Myrivilis based the book on his own experience of fighting on the Macedonian front. The book is so honest about how appalling conditions were and how badly the army was managed that it was banned on publication.

Stratis Myrivilis's book brilliantly captures a complex Southern European view of World War I. Our narrator meets a wide range of nationalities on his journey to the trenches. The incidents he describes are rich and often unexpected - the Macedonian family who care for him when wounded, the enemy soldier with the voice of an angel and the Chinese cart driver who helps him when lost. The narrator is moving, unwittingly, towards his own death, a tragic accident in the last days of the conflict.

Stratis Myrivilis was a prolific author, nominated by the Greek society of authors for the Nobel Prize in 1960.

April De Angelis is a leading playwright. She has been produced by the Royal Court, the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company and Hampstead Theatre. Recent productions include Playhouse Creatures at Chichester and Jumpy at The Duke of Yorks.

Errollyn Wallen is an award-winning composer and singer, whose work has been commissioned by the BBC, Brodsky Quartet and Royal Opera House amongst many others.

Monday - Sarah Walker with Tony Visconti

9am
My favourite... Elgar salon pieces. Throughout the week Sarah shares a selection of Elgar's chamber music, written for small musical soirées. The line-up includes his Chanson de nuit, Chanson de matin and Salut d'amour, and the two songs Come Gentle Night, and Speak My Heart! Speak My Heart!

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: can you remember the television show or film that featured this piece of classical music?

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the record producer Tony Visconti. In his own words Tony is a 'band geek' who started his musical life playing the tuba and the double bass at school, but who ended up producing some of the most famous names in music. Tony worked on many of David Bowie's most acclaimed albums and has also produced an array of legendary bands and solo artists from Iggy Pop to Morrissey and Manic Street Preachers. Tony will be talking about his life in music, and sharing a selection of his favourite classical works, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time as she investigates the Insertion Aria, a feature that was popular in Classical opera, where one composer writes an aria to be inserted into another composer's opera. With examples by Salieri and Haydn.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, widely regarded as one of the finest period-instrument ensembles in recent times. Known for its energetic performances, the orchestra has been praised for its clean sound and intelligent interpretations. JS Bach is a key composer for the ensemble, and his music frames the week with the Orchestral Suite No. 4 and the Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in D minor (with Andreas Staier as soloist). Other highlights during the week include Haydn's Cello Concerto in C major (with Jean-Guihen Queyras), a selection of Telemann's Tafelmusik, and Mozart's 'Jupiter' Symphony under René Jacobs.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07h6cn6)
Stravinsky and the Symphony

A Russian in Paris

Donald Macleod explores Igor Stravinsky's life through his five symphonies - from Russian folk melodies to American cool. Today: his Symphonies of Wind Instruments.

He's undisputedly one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century. But Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) isn't generally thought of a symphonist - compared, say, to his contemporaries Shostakovich, Prokofiev or Sibelius. Yet Stravinsky's five symphonies - which span most of his mature career, from his early life in St Petersburg, to his socialite days in 1920s Paris, to his years as an émigré in the USA - are unique, dazzling musical jewels. This week, Donald Macleod tells the story of Stravinsky's life with complete performances of each of his five symphonies.

The week begins with Stravinsky's return to France after spending the First World War in exile in Switzerland. As he dazzles and confuses Paris audiences with a succession of eclectic masterpieces, the composer's personal life takes a turbulent turn, as Stravinsky embarks on affairs with first the fashion designer Coco Chanel, then Vera Sudeikina, who would become his consort for the rest of his life.

BBC Singers at St Bartholomew the Great

BBC Singers and their Chief Conductor David Hill explore two choral masterpieces in London's oldest surviving church. Victoria's Requiem, awash with mystical tension and expressive power, is rightly known as one of the greatest examples of renaissance polyphony.

Parry's Songs of Farewell were written 100 years ago, and reflect the mood of a composer towards the end of his own life and devastated by the horrors of The First World War.

That's followed by highlights from the Hesse Lecture given last week at the Aldeburgh Festival by Julian Anderson
The composer, teacher and music programmer reflects on why there is still apparently a widespread prejudice against modern composition and offers some solutions for the future.

On the legendary BBC music show The Old Grey Whistle Test and on numerous magazines from Smash Hits to Q to The Word they've worked so closely together that they often get mistaken for each other. In this first programme they discuss other double acts and analyse their own creative and personal relationship in The Indivisible Men..

Stravinsky and the Symphony

Psalms and Fingers

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Stravinsky's life through his symphonies. Today: his unique, darkly-scored Symphony of Psalms and dazzling Violin Concerto.

He's undisputedly one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century. But Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) isn't generally thought of a symphonist - compared, say, to his contemporaries Shostakovich, Prokofiev or Sibelius. Yet Stravinsky's five symphonies - which span most of his mature career, from his early life in St Petersburg, to his socialite days in 1920s Paris, to his years as an émigré in the USA - are unique, dazzling musical jewels. This week, Donald Macleod tells the story of Stravinsky's life with complete performances of each of his five symphonies.

Despite having been brought up in the Russian Orthodox faith, by the mid-1920s Stravinsky hadn't written a note of religious music. This changed dramatically in the mid-1920s, as - perhaps spurred by guilt over his messy personal life - he turned back to the Orthodox Christianity of his youth. This would culminate in one of the 20th century's most distinctive and powerful sacred concert works - Stravinsky's "Symphony of Psalms".

After 30 years, the Adrian Boult Hall in Birmingham closes its doors for the last time as the Birmingham Conservatoire begins its gradual move to a new site on the city's East Side. This month the hall, affectionately known by locals as the ABH, is demolished - all part of Birmingham's new massive central development.

The Earl Grey Whistle Test: Dancing About Architecture

Programme 2 in The Earl Grey Whistle Test, a series of Essays by David Hepworth and Mark Ellen, considers the tricky business of describing music in print. From Philip Larkin and Jack Kerouac, through Nick Kent and Charles Shaar Murray, many great writers have tried. More recently, reviewers describe the looks or the social lives of musicians because their readers can stream or download the music before they can write about it. Magazine editor and broadcaster Mark Ellen reflects on the art and craft of music criticism in Dancing About Architecture.

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the record producer Tony Visconti. In his own words Tony is a 'band geek' who started his musical life playing the tuba and the double bass at school, but who ended up producing some of the most famous names in music. Tony worked on many of David Bowie's most acclaimed albums and has also produced an array of legendary bands and solo artists from Iggy Pop to Morrissey and Manic Street Preachers. Tony will be talking about his life in music, and sharing a selection of his favourite classical works, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Sarah places Music in Time with the Romantic period and Bizet's L'Arlésienne Suite No. 2, which features one of the earliest uses of a saxophone in an orchestra, bringing a new elegiac quality to the Romantic symphony orchestra.

Sarah's artist of the week is the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, widely regarded as one of the finest period-instrument ensembles in recent times. Known for its energetic performances, the orchestra has been praised for its clean sound and intelligent interpretations. JS Bach is a key composer for the ensemble, and his music frames the week with the Orchestral Suite No. 4 and the Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in D minor (with Andreas Staier as soloist). Other highlights during the week include Haydn's Cello Concerto in C major (with Jean-Guihen Queyras), a selection of Telemann's Tafelmusik, and Mozart's 'Jupiter' Symphony under Rene Jacobs.

Stravinsky and the Symphony

A Precociously Russian Symphony

Continuing his exploration of Stravinsky's symphonies, Donald Macleod takes us back to the early 1900s - and the precocious Symphony in E flat, dubbed by the young composer "Symphony no. 1"!

He's undisputedly one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century. But Igor Stravinsky isn't generally thought of a symphonist - compared, say, to his contemporaries Shostakovich, Prokofiev or Sibelius. Yet Stravinsky's five symphonies --which span most of his mature career, from his early life in St Petersburg, to his socialite days in 1920s Paris, to his years as an émigré in the USA - are unique, dazzling musical jewels. This week, Donald Macleod tells the story of Stravinsky's life with complete performances of each of his five symphonies.

Today: an interlude, as Donald Macleod delves further back in time to explore the young Stravinsky's early life and Symphony in E Flat - somewhat presumptuously titled "Symphony no.1" by the twenty-something composer.

Stravinsky and the Symphony

Adieu Europe, Hello America

Donald Macleod explores Stravinsky's life through his symphonies. Today: Stravinsky bids Europe farewell at the outbreak of war - and composes his effervescent Symphony in C.

He's undisputedly one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century. But Igor Stravinsky isn't generally thought of a symphonist - compared, say, to his contemporaries Shostakovich, Prokofiev or Sibelius. Yet Stravinsky's five symphonies - which span most of his mature career, from his early life in St Petersburg, to his socialite days in 1920s Paris, to his years as an émigré in the USA - are unique, dazzling musical jewels. This week, Donald Macleod tells the story of Stravinsky's life with complete performances of each of his five symphonies.

In today's episode Donald Macleod explores Stravinsky's emigration to the USA in 1940, as Europe tore itself apart. He explores a number of works Stravinsky wrote for his new home, including a complete performance of the composer's most "classical" symphony - his Symphony in C.

Friday - Sarah Walker with Tony Visconti

9am
My favourite... Elgar salon pieces. Throughout the week Sarah shares a selection of Elgar's chamber music, written for small musical soirées. The line-up includes his Chanson de nuit, Chanson de matin and Salut d'amour, and the two songs Come Gentle Night, and Speak My Heart! Speak My Heart!

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: trace the classical theme behind a well-known song.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the record producer Tony Visconti. In his own words Tony is a 'band geek' who started his musical life playing the tuba and the double bass at school, but who ended up producing some of the most famous names in music. Tony worked on many of David Bowie's most acclaimed albums and has also produced an array of legendary bands and solo artists from Iggy Pop to Morrissey and Manic Street Preachers. Tony will be talking about his life in music, and sharing a selection of his favourite classical works, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Medieval
Sarah places Music in Time with the Medieval period, putting the spotlight on Leonel Power, one of the first composers to set each of the sections of the Mass to music using a single, common theme. Trio Medieval bring a purity of tone to this mysterious early musical tribute to the Virgin Mary.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, widely regarded as one of the finest period-instrument ensembles in recent times. Known for its energetic performances, the orchestra has been praised for its clean sound and intelligent interpretations. JS Bach is a key composer for the ensemble, and his music frames the week with the Orchestral Suite No. 4 and the Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in D minor (with Andreas Staier as soloist). Other highlights during the week include Haydn's Cello Concerto in C major (with Jean-Guihen Queyras), a selection of Telemann's Tafelmusik, and Mozart's 'Jupiter' Symphony under Rene Jacobs.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07h6phc)
Stravinsky and the Symphony

Liberation

Donald Macleod ends this week exploring Stravinsky's life through his symphonies with the story of the turbulent Symphony in Three Movements, his first major American work.

He's undisputedly one of the greatest musical geniuses of the 20th century. But Igor Stravinsky isn't generally thought of a symphonist - compared, say, to his contemporaries Shostakovich, Prokofiev or Sibelius. Yet Stravinsky's five symphonies - which span most of his mature career, from his early life in St Petersburg, to his socialite days in 1920s Paris, to his years as an émigré in the USA - are unique, dazzling musical jewels. This week, Donald Macleod tells the story of Stravinsky's life with complete performances of each of his five symphonies.

To end the week, Donald Macleod introduces a complete performance of a work the composer called his "Victory" symphony - written in the 1940s as the Allied troops gradually drove back the Axis forces.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b07h6rjl)
The Earl Grey Whistle Test

The Earl Grey Whistle Test: Hope I Die Before I Get Old

In a week of Essays, David Hepworth and Mark Ellen reflect on their nearly 40-year partnership as music journalists and TV presenters and what they've learned along the way. On the legendary BBC music show The Old Grey Whistle Test and on numerous magazines from Smash Hits in the 1980s to Q to The Word Hepworth and Ellen worked so closely together that they still get mistaken for each other.

Today - David Hepworth on what keeps rock stars going - like McCartney, Dylan, the Rolling Stones. Whereas all their peers who got proper jobs were chucked on the scrapheap years ago, they can still play to larger crowds than ever, for more money than ever, to greater acclaim than ever. If you could do that, wouldn't you?

Hope I die before I get old? I don't think so.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b07h6rjn)
Mary Ann Kennedy with Ghazalaw in session

Mary Ann Kennedy with new music from across the globe, plus a live session with Ghazalaw, a band who mix the music of Wales and India.

Ghazalaw emerged from a collaboration between Mumbai singer Tauseef Akhtar and Welsh singer-songwriter Gwyneth Glyn - the name merges Indian song style 'ghazal' with the Welsh word 'alaw' which can mean melody, or harmony. Together with other leading musicians from India and from the Welsh folk scene, the band has played concerts across India, including the Desert Festival in Delhi and the Ghazal Bahaar in Mumbai, as well as back in Wales. They have now come together again for their current tour of the UK.
