Mark Wigglesworth conductor

As Europe slipped towards Fascism, Michael Tippett felt solidarity with the downtrodden. Then, in 1938,a young Polish Jew, whose parents had been deported by the Nazis, shot a German diplomat in Paris. Tippett had the central figure for his 'oratorio of contemplation', A Child of Our Time - inspired by Bach's Passions, Handel's Messiah and American spirituals.
Mark Wigglesworth also explores the theme of parent-child relationships in the final scene of Wagner's opera Die Walküre, culminating in Wotan's poignant farewell to his daughter.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07mmwzh)
Timberlake Wertenbaker

Timberlake Wertenbaker is one of our leading playwrights, adapters and translators. Her parents were American, but she was brought up in Basque country in France and has spent much of her life in Greece. Not surprising, then, that her major theme is exile, displacement, flight. She's best known for her play about convicts in 18th century Australia, "Our Country's Good", which was first staged in the late 1980s and which was revived recently at the National Theatre. It has become a set text in schools, and in fact Wertenbaker's own daughter had to study it (refusing all help from her playwright mother).

Timberlake Wertenbaker is well known to Radio 4 listeners as the adapter of the recent "War and Peace"; and her new work is a dramatization of "My Brilliant Friend" by the cult Italian writer Elena Ferrante, which will be broadcast as the Classic Serial on 31 July.

In Private Passions, Timberlake Wertenbaker talks about her childhood in Basque country, and how that sense of being part of a political minority has influenced her life. She chooses music by Ravel which was inspired by a Basque dance, and a protest song by the Basque musician Mikel Leboa. She talks about the moving experience of seeing her work performed in prisons and chooses the prisoners' chorus from "Fidelio". And she reflects on how little has changed in the theatre since she began writing in terms of how few women playwrights ever get their work on stage.

With Schubert, Beethoven, Nina Simone, Ravel, Leboa, and a moving work by the Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis.

"Why these are the city waits, who play every winter's night through the
streets to rouse each lazy drone to family duty. These are the topping tooters

After the success of last year's Ten pieces Prom comes a new selection of classical essentials, this time aimed at secondary-school pupils. In the culmination of the Ten Pieces II project which has taken classical music to schools across the UK this Prom brings the pieces live to the Royal Albert Hall. From the power of Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries' to the skills of DJ Mr Switch in Gabriel Prokofiev's Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra, the Ten Pieces II Prom also showcases creative responses from teenagers.

PROMS EXTRA
In a brief exploration of recent research that suggests children who study music and perform music in school ensembles perform better in core subjects (including English and maths) than their peers, Clemency Burton-Hill hears from a leading cognitive neuroscientist about the impact musical study can have on the brain structure and function of children. Catching up with teachers and educators who have subscribed to the Ten Pieces project, and hearing from members of the BBC's learning team, she hears about the impact the initiative has had on pupils in Dudley and discovers some of the creative journeys they've taken whilst engaging with the classical repertoire the project explores.

Dante and Blake: The Seven Deadly Sins

In his Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri explores the cardinal vices of Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Covetousness, Gluttony and Lust. In his singular and influential model of the afterlife, he climbs the Mountain of Purgatory and encounters seven terraces, each home to penitents suffering torments according to their sin.

Another visionary poet, William Blake, was an equally individual artist and produced more than a hundred illustrations for Dante's masterwork. The themes of suffering and redemption, darkness and light, appealed to him as both painter and writer, and many of his poems match Dante for intensity and insight.

Extracts from Dante's Purgatory and Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience are read by Ray Fearon and Aoife Duffin while music includes Wagner, Janacek, Tchaikovsky and Miles Davis.

Beethoven helped change the European musical landscape but in his final symphony he imagined the most startling transformation of all: from a brutal, joyless world to one of uplifting and embracing brotherhood. He did it by writing his most vivid music yet and employing a chorus, proclaiming Friedrich Schiller's uplifting 'Ode to Joy'.

Vladimir Jurowski returns to the Proms, opening with a new work from one of the finest orchestral craftsmen of our time, Magnus Lindberg.

Monday - Sarah Walker, plus Rob Cowan with Alistair McGowan

9am
My favourite... Vivaldi Concertos. Sarah shares her favourite Baroque masterpieces from Vivaldi's impressive range of concertos. With over 600 to choose from, Sarah discovers rarely-heard masterpieces which catch the ear with their unusual instrumental soloists such as the soft velvety tones of the viola d'amore. There are also works with eccentric titles: Proteus or the World Turned Upside Down, and styles range from the dramatic - his late concertos written in Vienna - to the joyful trilling of the Goldfinch. Sarah's line up of leading performers includes Europa Galante with Fabio Biondi, recorder player Maurice Steger with I Barocchisti, and fiery ensemble Zefiro.

Alistair appears at the BBC Proms next Monday in a cabaret chamber music concert devoted to the world of the French composer Erik Satie, one of Alistair's musical passions. Alistair's career has continued to diversify since his last appearance on Essential Classics in 2012, showing his culinary skills on the Great Sport Relief Bake Off, playing the title role in the critically-acclaimed 'An Audience With Jimmy Savile', as well as a successful stand-up tour with Jasper Carrott.

Sarah's Proms Artist of the Week is Sarah Connolly, who performs at the Proms, this Friday night in Mahler's Symphony No.3. A former member of the BBC Singers, Sarah is one of the UK's most popular mezzo-sopranos, receiving critical acclaim for her performance on stage and on disc. Her breakthrough in Handel's opera Xerxes led to roles at Glyndebourne, ENO and the New York Metropolitan Opera. More recently she has made her name in Romantic and 20th-century masterpieces such as Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier and Mark-Anthony Turnage's The Silver Tassie. This week offers the chance to explore the range of Sarah's repertoire as the tragic queen Dido in Purcell's semi-opera, the intimate depiction of a woman's life in Schumann's Frauenliebe und -leben, virtuoso arias by Handel from Alcina and Hercules, Elgar's Sea Pictures, and Romantic songs from Hahn and Brahms.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07lfnxl)
Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), The Summer of Love

Johannes Brahms becomes secretly engaged to Agathe von Siebold, presented by Donald Macleod

German composer Johannes Brahms became a significant figure in Western music during his own lifetime, and has retained this position ever since. His works were performed throughout Europe, the UK and the USA, and displayed much passion in keeping with the musical language of the mid to late nineteenth century. Donald Macleod this week explores some of the larger orchestral works Brahms composed, taking on the mantle from Beethoven and Schubert, and the periods in which they were written. The series includes the first piano concerto, his German Requiem, concertos for violin, and violin and cello, and also his third and fourth symphonies.

During the late 1850's Brahms completed his Piano Concerto No 1 in D minor. It was a period when his relationship was developing with Clara Schumann, and the concerto itself became marked by the memory of Robert Schumann's attempted suicide. It was also a time when Brahms was introduced to, and later secretly became engaged to Agathe von Siebold, although when he should have been more interested in composing a Bridal Song his thoughts actually turned to composing a Funeral Anthem, Begräbnisgesang. Clara Schumann told Brahms she'd like it to be performed at her own funeral. Within a short space of time, Brahms broke off his engagement to Agathe.

Jérémie Rhorer's energetic period-instrument ensemble makes its Proms debut along with fast-rising soprano Rosa Feola. The orchestra opens with Mozart's vigorous Symphony No. 39, the first of the composer's final trilogy.
Just like Mozart, Mendelssohn had an uncanny way of balancing head and heart in complex musical arguments, as heard in the thrusting brilliance of his Fourth Symphony, the 'Italian', tinged with poetry and romance

Enrique Mazzola, conductor

Glyndebourne makes its annual visit to the Proms, bringing the ultimate comic opera. Rossini wrote The Barber of Seville 200 years ago, reportedly in a period of just three weeks, his head spinning with the joy and wit he discovered in the story of the wily hairdresser Figaro's amorous antics. The result is an opera full of expectant fun but also grace and beauty. Leading soprano Danielle de Niese stars as the young ward Rosina, eager to escape the clutches of the elderly Count Almaviva in a highlight of this summer's Proms Rossini focus.

Proms Extra: The Politics of Shaving
Historian and biographer Kathryn Hughes joins New Generation Thinker Alun Withey from The University of Exeter to look at the role and politics of hair styling in 18th and 19th century Europe. The discussion, recorded earlier this evening with an audience at the Imperial College Union, is hosted by Dr Shahidha Bari from Queen Mary University, London.

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics interested in turning their research into radio.

With music from the Southern Cone Quintet, which takes its inspiration from the folk and classical music of South America; and poetry from Geraldine Clarkson, whose experience includes time spent in a monastery in Peru.

MON 23:00 Jazz Now (b07jxrc0)
Tin Men and the Telephone

The Dutch-based trio Tin Men and the Telephone, led by pianist Tony Roe, and featuring drummer Bobby Petrov and bassist Lucas Dols, is unique in the world of jazz, by playing concerts that interact in real time with a telephone app, operated by members of the audience. Taking music from sounds that surround us in everyday life, traffic noise, tannoy announcements, shopping queues, they transform these into music. Their live show from the 2016 Norfolk and Norwich Festival presented by Soweto Kinch is a riot of unpredictability. The band-members explain their highly original concept to Al Ryan, and videos of part of the concert will be on the Radio 3 website so that radio audiences can share in every aspect of this unorthodox music making.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), The German Requiem

With premieres looming in Bremen Cathedral, Johannes Brahms finally completes his German Requiem. Presented by Donald Macleod

German composer Johannes Brahms became a significant figure in Western music during his own lifetime, and has retained this position ever since. His works were performed throughout Europe, the UK and the USA, and displayed much passion in keeping with the musical language of the mid to late nineteenth century. Donald Macleod this week explores some of the larger orchestral works Brahms composed, taking on the mantle from Beethoven and Schubert, and the periods in which they were written. The series includes the First Piano Concerto, his German Requiem, concertos for violin, and for violin and cello, and also his third and fourth symphonies.

During the late 1860s Brahms was preoccupied with completing his German Requiem, in readiness for its premiere at Bremen Cathedral in 1868. He was the first German composer to choose and shape his texts from sources other than the burial service, to convey a message about grief and death. Clara Schumann attended the premiere, as did the composer Max Bruch. During this same period Brahms had fallen in love again, this time with Clara's daughter Julie, who inspired him to write his love songs the Liebeslieder Waltzes.

As Europe slipped towards Fascism, Michael Tippett felt solidarity with the downtrodden. Then, in 1938, a young Polish Jew, whose parents had been deported by the Nazis, shot a German diplomat in Paris. Tippett had the central figure for his 'oratorio of contemplation', A Child of Our Time - inspired by Bach's Passions, Handel's Messiah and American spirituals.
Mark Wigglesworth also explores the theme of parent-child relationships in the final scene of Wagner's opera Die Walküre, culminating in Wotan's poignant farewell to his daughter.

The acclaimed novelist and nature writer Melissa Harrison explores our relationship with the weather as she follows the course of a thundery rain shower deep in the Kent countryside. At the end of a long period of drought, she walks alongside the River Darent and reflects on how the countryside changes in wet weather, and how the English identity is shaped by the elements. The extract is introduced and read by the author herself and is taken from her recently published collection Rain: Four Walks in English Weather which received the following critical acclaim:

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), Reducing a Hostess to Tears

Johannes Brahms reduces a society hostess to tears for owning 'Wagnerian trash'. Presented by Donald Macleod

German composer Johannes Brahms became a significant figure in Western music during his own lifetime, and has retained this position ever since. His works were performed throughout Europe, the UK and the USA, and displayed much passion in keeping with the musical language of the mid to late nineteenth century. Donald Macleod this week explores some of the larger orchestral works Brahms composed, taking on the mantle from Beethoven and Schubert, and the periods in which they were written. The series includes the First Piano Concerto, his German Requiem, concertos for violin, and for violin and cello, and also his third and fourth symphonies.

During the late 1870s Brahms premiered his First Symphony, and then at lightning speed composed his second. It was around this same time that Brahms was aiding the impoverished Bohemian composer Dvorak, supporting his case for a scholarship and also recommending him to publishers. Brahms could also be amazingly unfeeling at times, and reduced one society hostess to tears when he publicly searched her cupboards for what he called "Wagnerian Trash". By 1878 Brahms was also busy writing a work for his friend the violinist Joachim. The two collaborated together on what became Brahms's Violin Concerto Opus 77. The premiere didn't go well and Brahms subsequently destroyed a draft of a second violin concerto he'd made.

Beethoven helped change the European musical landscape but in his final symphony he imagined the most startling transformation of all: from a brutal, joyless world to one of uplifting and embracing brotherhood. He did it by writing his most vivid music yet and employing a chorus, proclaiming Friedrich Schiller's uplifting 'Ode to Joy'.

Vladimir Jurowski returns to the Proms, opening with a new work from one of the finest orchestral craftsmen of our time, Magnus Lindberg.

WED 22:00 Sunday Feature (b052zwd6)
The Day of the Locust

When the novelist Nathanael West died in a car crash in 1940, he thought his last book, The Day of the Locust, was a humiliating failure. But today, it is heralded as a major twentieth century classic.

West was a New Yorker who had gone to Hollywood to earn money turning out scripts, and Day of the Locust is his dark, sardonic take on the promise of Hollywood, and of California - which attracted thousands to the Golden State in the Depression years of the 1930s. Amidst the sunshine and the oranges, West saw a middle class boiling with frustration. His early title for the novel was The Cheated.
The book ends with a movie premiere transmogrifying into a murderous riot - at the heart of which is a character called Homer Simpson.

So in this programme, historian Adam Smith travels to Los Angeles to unearth the roots of the novel in the political turmoil of the time. West saw his climactic mob scene as a prophecy of America descending into civil war. Adam traces how two young men living in Los Angeles as West wrote the novel were to go on to channel the resentments West divined into a political movement which swept America.

A young would-be film star turned down work at the studio where West worked - and was living four blocks away from West as he wrote Locust. Ronald Reagan would go on to become Governor of California by tapping into middle class fears and loathings. And a few miles away, a young, awkward lawyer, Richard Nixon, was already shaping his skills at 'doing the people's hating for them' - a talent that would take him, too, all the way to the White House.

Adam visits West's old haunts and mingles with the crowd at a contemporary movie premiere, in a bid to understand the very Californian frustrations West saw all around him. He explores how, finally, in the 1980s, Reagan - once a thwarted actor - was able to fuse middle-class resentments with a sunny Hollywood optimism, in a political alchemy that transformed America.

The Five Photographs that (You Didn't Know) Changed Everything, Anna Bertha's Hand

You won't find this photograph in a glossy coffee table book. It's not art and the person who took it doesn't feature in the Photographers Hall of Fame. But this picture has had an enormous impact on the world of medicine and our relationship with our bodies.
The photograph of Anna Bertha Ludwig Rontgen's left hand taken in 1896 astounded the scientific world and alarmed the public. For the scientists it signalled the beginning of medical radiography. For the public it gave rise to fears about intrusion and privacy in much the same way as the introduction of the TSA body scanner did in 2007. From medical imaging to airport security, Kelley Wilder shows how X-ray photography changed the world.

Sarah's Proms Artist of the Week is Sarah Connolly, who performs at the Proms, this Friday night in Mahler's Symphony No.3. A former member of the BBC Singers, Sarah is one of the UK's most popular mezzo-sopranos, receiving critical acclaim for her performance on stage and on disc. Her breakthrough in Handel's opera Xerxes led to roles at Glyndebourne, ENO and the New York Metropolitan Opera. More recently she has made her name in Romantic and 20th-century masterpieces such as Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier and Mark-Anthony Turnage's The Silver Tassie. This week offers the chance to explore the range of Sarah's repertoire as the tragic queen Dido in Purcell's semi-opera, the intimate depiction of a woman's life in Schumann's Frauenliebe und -leben, virtuoso arias by Handel from Alcina and Hercules, Elgar's Sea Pictures, and Romantic songs from Hahn and Brahms.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), The Little Leopard and the Great Lion

Johannes Brahms the 'Great Lion' collaborates with the Little Leopard Hans von Bülow. Presented by Donald Macleod.

German composer Johannes Brahms became a significant figure in Western music during his own lifetime, and has retained this position ever since. His works were performed throughout Europe, the UK and the USA, and displayed much passion in keeping with the musical language of the mid to late nineteenth century. Donald Macleod this week explores some of the larger orchestral works Brahms composed, taking on the mantle from Beethoven and Schubert, and the periods in which they were written. The series includes the First Piano Concerto, his German Requiem, concertos for violin, and for violin and cello, and also his third and fourth symphonies.

During the early 1880s Brahms found a new champion of his music, Hans von Bülow. Bülow became director of music at the ducal court of Saxe-Meiningen, and took charge of the orchestra there. He gave Brahms the opportunity to try out a number of his orchestral works before they were premiered, including his Second Piano Concerto, and also his third and fourth symphonies. Brahms became a favourite at the court with Duke George II, and was awarded the Commander?s Cross of the House of Meiningen. It was for the Duke that Brahms dedicated his Song of the Fates, Gesang der Parzen.

A Secret Life: Uwe Johnson in Sheerness

"I got the nickname 'the Poet of the Divided Germany' which I didn't want to be at all," the writer Uwe Johnson protested in an interview recorded five years before his death in 1984.

So why did this serious, uncompromising writer, who also lived in New York in the mid-1960s, decide to settle in unglamorous Sheerness, Kent in 1974? It was a move which many of his contemporaries found difficult to understand.

Johnson had won considerable acclaim in 1959 for his first published novel, Speculations about Jakob, a book which was among the first to feature characters torn between East and West Germany. He established himself as a major literary writer.

Yet rather than Berlin, London or New York, Johnson chose Sheerness - in his words, a 'much maligned' town. He asked his English neighbours to call him Charlie, because he thought they would struggle to say Uwe. He regularly enjoyed nights in the local pubs, and wrote detailed accounts of the conversations he overheard there. Meanwhile he was attempting to finish his epic novel Anniversaries.

Patrick Wright tries to find out why Johnson chose Sheerness, talking to his Sheerness neighbour, and other friends who knew him during his years there. He also hears about Johnson's earlier life, growing up under Hitler and then Stalin, and how this shaped his approach to writing fiction.

The programme includes new translations by Damion Searls of Johnson's writings from Sheerness.

You won't find this photograph in a glossy coffee table book. It's not art and the person who took it doesn't feature in the Photographers Hall of Fame. But this picture has had an enormous impact on our world.
Today high-resolution photographs of nebulae or galaxies saturate our culture to such an extent that they are almost kitsch. But when Henry Draper took the very first pictures of a nebula in 1880 it was one of the greatest achievements of photography. Omar Nasim tells the story of how this photograph defied the imagination and raised questions not just about the size of the universe but about the very origins of humanity.

Sarah's line up of leading performers includes Europa Galante with Fabio Biondi, recorder player Maurice Steger with I Barocchisti, and fiery ensemble Zefiro.

Sarah's Proms Artist of the Week is Sarah Connolly, who performs at the Proms, this Friday night in Mahler's Symphony No.3. A former member of the BBC Singers, Sarah is one of the UK's most popular mezzo-sopranos, receiving critical acclaim for her performance on stage and on disc. Her breakthrough in Handel's opera Xerxes led to roles at Glyndebourne, ENO and the New York Metropolitan Opera. More recently she has made her name in Romantic and 20th-century masterpieces such as Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier and Mark-Anthony Turnage's The Silver Tassie. This week offers the chance to explore the range of Sarah's repertoire as the tragic queen Dido in Purcell's semi-opera, the intimate depiction of a woman's life in Schumann's Frauenliebe und -leben, virtuoso arias by Handel from Alcina and Hercules, Elgar's Sea Pictures, and Romantic songs from Hahn and Brahms.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), The Senile Production

Johannes Brahms completes his Double Concerto which was called by one critic 'a senile production'. Presented by Donald Macleod

German composer Johannes Brahms became a significant figure in Western music during his own lifetime, and has retained this position ever since. His works were performed throughout Europe, the UK and the USA, and displayed much passion in keeping with the musical language of the mid to late nineteenth century. Donald Macleod this week explores some of the larger orchestral works Brahms composed, taking on the mantle from Beethoven and Schubert, and the periods in which they were written. The series includes the First Piano Concerto, his German Requiem, concertos for violin, and violin and cello, and also his third and fourth symphonies.

During the late 1880s Brahms premiered his Fourth Symphony at Meiningen, which was very well received with applause after every movement. This was at a time when he was also working on his Piano Trio No 3 in C minor. He'd last composed for that combination of instruments nearly thirty years previously. Clara said of the Trio that is was inspired throughout with passion. By 1887, Brahms was healing a rift with the violinist Joachim, composing for him a double concerto for violin and cello. Joachim was delighted with the work, although one critic called it 'a senile production'.

Bernard Haitink (conductor)

On the shores of the Attersee in Upper Austria, the hut still stands in which Gustav Mahler set about creating one of the most overwhelming visions of nature in all art. The composer's Third Symphony harnessed the expanse that surrounded him. Horns bray and trombones growl in the face of nature's primeval power; human voices move from grief to hope before, as Mahler declared, 'nature in its totality rings and resounds'.

In the 50th-anniversary year of his first appearance at the Proms, Bernard Haitink conducts Mahler's mighty nature symphony.
