SAT 09:00 Record Review (b07jhpp7)
Building a Library: Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Building a Library: Sarah Lenton comes up with a personal recommendation for Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld from among available versions.

The starting point for Jacques Offenbach's 1858 opéra bouffe Orphée aux enfers is classical Greek myth. But tragedy it ain't. Here, instead, is a cheeky parody of Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, the tragic pair a married couple grown sick of the sight of each other. So when Pluto lures Eurydice to his underworld both she and Orpheus are equally pleased. But, much to Orpheus' displeasure, Public Opinion demands Eurydice be rescued. And so she is, the opera ending with a bacchanal including a 'galop infernal' or Can-Can, one of the work's many earworm moments.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b07jhppm)
Halevy's La Juive

Halévy: La Juive

Although Fromental Halévy wrote almost forty operas, La Juive is the only opera of his that we're likely to hear today, but it is an early high point of French grand opera and was one of the most performed works in the nineteenth century. Halévy was among the most successful composers of his time, and his distinguished admirers included Berlioz, Wagner and Mahler, who regarded La Juive as one of the greatest operas ever created. The libretto was by Scribe, a dramatic writer of the time too, but despite the opera's grandeur, La Juive tells a profoundly human story, of an impossible love between a Christian man and a Jewish woman.

Alexandra Wilson introduces this recent performance from the Bavarian State Opera, which stars soprano Aleksandra Kurzak as Rachel, the opera's title character, and Roberto Alagna as her father, the Jewish goldsmith Eleazar. The Chorus and Orchestra of the Bavarian State Opera are conducted by Bertrand de Billy.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b07jhv6h)
James Jolly

Prompted by this week's Building a Library choice of Orpheus in the Underworld, (of which the programme will include act 1 of the selected recording), James Jolly explores the ways in which different composers have told the Orpheus story, from Monteverdi to Philip Glass by way of Gluck, Liszt and Stravinsky. Plus Americana from Henry Cowell and the week's "Best of British" choice by Charles Villiers Stanford.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07jhv6k)
Julia Donaldson

Julia Donaldson began her working life busking and writing songs, and when one of her songs became a children's book, her phenomenally successful career as an author was born. She's been the biggest selling author in Britain for the last six years. This will come as no surprise to anyone who has anything to do with young children, who adore her vibrant and funny rhyming picture books - which include A Squash and a Squeeze, The Snail and the Whale, and the tale of that much-loved monster, The Gruffalo.

Julia talks to Michael Berkeley about the origins of The Gruffalo - which has sold an astonishing 10 million copies - and the secret of writing for children. She remembers her student days busking with her husband-to-be in Paris and how much they enjoy singing and performing her stories together today.
Julia's music choices reflect her intensely musical background - her father's cello playing, her mother's love of lieder, and her own piano playing in pieces by Schubert, Haydn and Handel. Her love of storytelling is reflected in songs by Georges Brassens and Flanders and Swann.

Chasing a Fugue

Tom Service looks at music in flight - the miraculous musical form that is the fugue, where melodies chase each other, work against each other and come together in a supremely logical and often exhilarating fusion. How does it work, why is it important and can we learn to love the fugue in the 21st century? Tom tries his hand at playing Bach's Fugue in C minor from Book 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier, a challenge to many a piano exam student, gets tips on tackling fugues from virtuoso harpsichord player Mahan Esfahani, and comes across a very contemporary take on the art of learning about fugue. Lady Gaga is involved...

Monday - Rob Cowan with Kate Adie

9am
My favourite...sonatinas. Throughout the week Rob showcases a range of 'small sonatas' by composers including CPE Bach, Busoni and Ravel. Sonatinas are usually lighter in feel and less demanding than a full sonata, but it's still possible to pack plenty into these smaller forms. Expect flair, technical wizardry, whimsy and more besides.

9.30am
Take part in today's music-related challenge: listen to the clues and identify the mystery person.

10am
Rob's guest is the veteran correspondent and author Kate Adie. Kate became a familiar face on our televisions as the BBC's chief news correspondent, reporting from war zones around the world and covering major events including the Tiananmen Square Massacre, the Rwandan genocide and the Gulf War. She went on to write a number of books including Corsets to Camouflage: Women and War and her autobiography The Kindness of Strangers. She currently presents From Our Own Correspondent on BBC Radio 4. Kate talks about her career and shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Ethel Smyth and Carl Michael Bellman, and Smetana's Ma Vlast, which she heard whilst reporting on the 'Velvet Revolution' in Prague.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance
Rob places Music in Time as he takes a trip back to the Renaissance period to hear Victoria's Missa O quam gloriosum, published in 1583. Based on Victoria's own joyful motet of 1572, the mass balances great simplicity with a marvellously controlled religious fervour.

11am
In the week leading up to the start of the Proms Rob's featured artist is the 'First Night' conductor Sakari Oramo. Oramo is Chief Conductor of both the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. After a decade as Chief Conductor of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, he currently serves as their Honorary Conductor. Rob shares Oramo's interpretations of works by composers including Rachmaninov, Lindberg and Sibelius.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07jhwk5)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Episode 1

Donald Macleod explores Mozart's complex relationship with the city of his birth, Salzburg.

There is no place where Mozart's name is more feted than in his home city of Salzburg. Mozart's own feelings about the city of his birth were ambivalent at best. He was often unhappy there; frustrated by the limitations of musical life in Salzburg and increasingly at loggerheads with his overbearing employer, the high-handed Archbishop Colloredo. "How I detest Salzburg", he wrote, and sought to escape the place on many occasions. Nevertheless this was the place where he spent his formative years, where he composed many great works, and where he developed into the composer we now celebrate as one of the greatest of any age. All this week Donald Macleod explores the story of Mozart's relationship with the place where his genius was forged.

Mozart's childhood was spent as much away from Salzburg as at home. Colloredo's predecessor, old Archbishop Schrattenbach, tolerated, even encouraged the young prodigy's trips abroad with his father to visit royal courts across Europe. He must have suspected, though, that the Mozart family was even then planning their escape from provincial Salzburg.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b07jhx5r)
Roald Dahl at 100, Frank Cottrell Boyce on flying and myth-making

To mark the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth Frank Cottrell Boyce writes about the myth that the celebrated storyteller Dahl constructed out of his near fatal plane crash during the Second World War, and how he so perceptively captured a child's-eye view in his writing. Cottrell Boyce also recalls his very first encounter with Dahl's writing, which ended in outrage. The award-winning Frank Cottrell Boyce's first novel, Millions, was made into a feature film. He is a successful screenwriter and helped devise the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Roald Dahl at 100 is a celebration of the storyteller's work and legacy ahead of the centenary of his birth in September 2016. Five acclaimed writers, the screenwriter and children's novelist, Frank Cottrell Boyce; the screenwriter and co-creator of The League of Gentleman, Jeremy Dyson; the author and performance poet, Laura Dockrill; the writer and former children's laureate, Michael Rosen, and the biographer Donald Sturrock, explore their passion for Dahl's dazzling worlds, his dark humour and wild language and how it inspired their own work.

Music in Time: Modern
Rob places Music in Time. Polystylism was probably created by Russian composer Alfred Schnittke who once said "The goal of my life is to unify serious music and light music, even if I break my neck in doing so". The term refers to the multiple uses of styles and themes in music, as demonstrated by the composer Osvaldo Golijov in his Wa Habibi, which ranges further and wider than most.

He was often unhappy there; frustrated by the limitations of musical life in Salzburg and increasingly at loggerheads with his overbearing employer, the high-handed Archbishop Colloredo.

All this week Donald Macleod explores the story of Mozart's relationship with the place where his genius was forged.

Archbishop Colloredo took over as ruler of Salzburg in 1772, and immediately moved to curb Mozart's regular jaunts around Europe. He was determined that the child genius should contribute more fully to musical life at home and put Mozart to work writing for the church. If it rankled, taking what was in effect a servants job, after all the adulation he'd enjoyed abroad, Mozart didn't show it...yet.

Anne Boleyn, the most notorious of Henry VIII's six wives, was brought up under the guardianship of Margaret of Austria - patron to some of the most famous composers in all of Europe - and then in the French court, where a collection of her favourite music was assembled in a book that she probably kept until her execution in 1536. Alamire explores the contents of this collection, which includes works by some of the greatest composers of the early 16th century: Compère, Brumel, Mouton and Josquin. The programme concludes with a haunting setting of O Deathe Rock Me Asleep, possibly linked to Anne's fate as she awaited her execution in the Tower of London.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Theatrical Diversions

There is no place where Mozart's name is more feted than in his home city of Salzburg. Mozart's own feelings about the city of his birth were ambivalent at best. He was often unhappy there; frustrated by the limitations of musical life in Salzburg and increasingly at loggerheads with his overbearing employer, the high-handed Archbishop Colloredo. "How I detest Salzburg", he wrote, and sought to escape the place on many occasions. Nevertheless this was the place where he spent his formative years, where he composed many great works, and where he developed into the composer we now celebrate as one of the greatest of any age. All this week Donald Macleod explores the story of Mozart's relationship with the place where his genius was forged.

Mozart spent the entirety of 1774 kicking his heels in Salzburg; the longest continuous period he'd spent at home since he was six. A brief diversion presented itself when he was asked to produce an opera for Munich but, ultimately, he found his theatrical ambitions once again thwarted. Mozart's frustrations with his position in Salzburg were becoming obvious.

There is no place where Mozart's name is more feted than in his home city of Salzburg. Mozart's own feelings about the city of his birth were ambivalent at best. He was often unhappy there; frustrated by the limitations of musical life in Salzburg and increasingly at loggerheads with his overbearing employer, the high-handed Archbishop Colloredo.

All this week Donald Macleod explores the story of Mozart's relationship with the place where his genius was forged.

After yet another ill-judged request for an absence of leave, Colloredo finally lost his patience with Mozart. He rudely dismissed the composer from his Salzburg court. Mozart set out for Paris to seek his fortune but disappointment and tragedy would follow. He was forced to return, chastened and bereft.

Narek Hakhnazaryan, a former winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition plays Bach's original solo cello version of his third cello suite before Russian pianist, Pavel Kolesnikov joins him to play movements from Schumann's recently discovered version with piano accompaniment. And Belgian clarinettist, Annelien Van Wauwe plays Schumann's romantically wistful Fantasy Pieces and a Romance by Princess Marie Elisabeth of Saxe-Meiningen, a one-time pupil of Brahms. And the three young musicians combine forces to round off their fascinating programme with Brahms's Clarinet Trio, a work which inspired one contemporary to observe admiringly that: "It is as though the instruments were in love with each other."

Verity Sharp has the great pleasure of presenting an exclusive mixtape from experimental, electronic music star Grimes.

Born in Canada in 1988, Claire Boucher (aka Grimes) has managed to become a major mainstream act without compromising her underground roots and original influences, ranging from industrial noise to medieval music. Her latest album 'Art Angels', which features collaborations with Janelle Monae and Aristophanes, was rated one of 2015's very best albums by many leading pop and rock critics.

Also tonight ... open your ears to excellent new tracks from percussionist and producer Sarathy Korwar, pop subversive Kilo Kish, and Congolese legends Konono No. 1.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b07jwld2)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Kate Adie

9am
My favourite...sonatinas. Throughout the week Rob showcases a range of 'small sonatas' by composers including CPE Bach, Busoni and Ravel. Sonatinas are usually lighter in feel and less demanding than a full sonata, but it's still possible to pack plenty into these smaller forms. Expect flair, technical wizardry, whimsy and more besides.

9.30am
Take part in today's music-related challenge: listen to the clues and identify the mystery place.

10am
Rob's guest is the veteran correspondent and author Kate Adie. Kate became a familiar face on our televisions as the BBC's chief news correspondent, reporting from war zones around the world and covering major events including the Tiananmen Square Massacre, the Rwandan genocide and the Gulf War. She went on to write a number of books including Corsets to Camouflage: Women and War and her autobiography The Kindness of Strangers. She currently presents From Our Own Correspondent on BBC Radio 4. Kate talks about her career and shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Ethel Smyth and Carl Michael Bellman, and Smetana's Ma Vlast, which she heard whilst reporting on the 'Velvet Revolution' in Prague.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Rob places Music in Time with Telemann's Overture Suite in E major. The suite, an ordered set of instrumental pieces, was extremely popular in the Baroque period, and the later addition of an overture to make an "overture suite" became particularly fashionable in Germany, with Telemann having claimed to have written around two hundred examples of this form.

11am
To mark the start of the Proms tonight, Rob shares a recording by the conductor who will open proceedings, Sakari Oramo. Oramo teams up with his 'First Night' orchestra, the BBC Symphony, in an acclaimed recording of Grieg's Piano Concerto.

Grieg
Piano Concerto in A minor Op.16
Javier Perianes (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor).

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07jwld4)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791), Farewell Salzburg

There is no place where Mozart's name is more feted than in his home city of Salzburg. Mozart's own feelings about the city of his birth were ambivalent at best. He was often unhappy there; frustrated by the limitations of musical life in Salzburg and increasingly at loggerheads with his overbearing employer, the high-handed Archbishop Colloredo. "How I detest Salzburg", he wrote, and sought to escape the place on many occasions. Nevertheless this was the place where he spent his formative years, where he composed many great works, and where he developed into the composer we now celebrate as one of the greatest of any age. All this week Donald Macleod explores the story of Mozart's relationship with the place where his genius was forged.

In 1781, Mozart finally broke free from Salzburg after an acrimonious parting with his employer, Archbishop Colloredo. Vienna would be his new home and the place where Mozart would finally blossom into the great opera composer he had always wanted to be. He visited his home just once more, taking with him one of his very greatest sacred works.
