Live at the BBC Proms: Aurora Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Collon in Wolfgang Rihm and Mozart's Symphony No 41 'Jupiter', and François Leleux joins for Strauss's Oboe Concerto.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Tom Service

Wolfgang Rihm: Gejagte Form (2002 version)
Richard Strauss: Oboe Concerto in D major

4.25 INTERVAL: Sheet Music
A closer look at the journey the music takes from the composer's pen to the orchestral players' music stands. With contributions from conductor Nicholas Collon and Mozart expert Cliff Eisen.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No 41 in C major, 'Jupiter'

It's difficult to imagine how Mozart could have followed his final symphony, the 'Jupiter' - a work of such scale, majesty and intensity. Tom Service and Nicholas Collon unpick Mozart's continuous stream of joy and invention, allowing us to get under the skin of this great work, which the Aurora Orchestra plays from memory.
Before it, one of the world's leading oboists, François Leleux, plays Strauss's twisting, singing Oboe Concerto - itself preceded by Wolfgang Rihm's Hunted Form, whose animal energy suggests a pursuit more physical than a search merely for musical structure.

PROMS INTERVAL: Sheet Music
As the Aurora Orchestra prepare to play Mozart's Jupiter Symphony from memory, this afternoon's interval traces the journey of music from the composer's pen to the players' and conductor's stands, and celebrates the often overlooked and underestimated role of the music librarian. With contributions from conductor Nicholas Collon and Mozart expert Cliff Eisen.

SUN 18:15 Words and Music (b07m56vp)
Star Light, Star Bright

Lorelei King and John Paul Connolly are looking heavenwards, with poetry and music on the beauty, science and influence of the stars.

Includes poetry by Keats, Whitman, Katherine Mansfield and Gerard Manley Hopkins, plus wise words from theoretical physicist Richard Feynman, and music from John Cage, Vaughan Williams, Kraftwerk and Britten, to name only a few.

Producer Note
This edition of Words and Music celebrates the ancient pastime, art and science of star-gazing, beginning and ending with whatever secret wish upon a star you need to make...
The sheer vastness of the starry height is described for us by Katherine Mansfield and Gerard Manley Hopkins, accompanied by silvery starlit music from Eriks Esenvalds and a violin concerto by Oliver Davis that takes as its inspiration the NASA Voyager probe, speeding through the galaxies. And Jerry Goldsmith's expansive Star Trek theme morphs into Holst's "Venus" - we know now it's a planet, but it was known to ancient civilisations as both the morning and the evening star...
Poetry from Louise Gluck and prose from Thomas Hardy express the feeling of human insignificance when set against the rolling night sky, as Jennifer Higdon's piano quintet "Scenes from the Poet's Dreams" races through stars, and as Robert Frost, underdog, leaps and barks with the great overdog - Canis Major.
Walt Whitman's poetic impatience with the learned astronomer's facts and figures is understandable perhaps, but those astronomers of old, the Magi, embraced both science and theology in their quest for the Star of Bethlehem. And staying with the theology for a while, Mary was commonly known as Our Lady, Star of the Sea in medieval times - a symbol of hope and guidance.
But back to the science - Philip Glass wrote his piece "Orion" as an evening-long piece for the 2004 Athens Olympics, as the constellation is visible from both hemispheres. We hear part of "Australia", complete with didgeridoo, accompanying Sir Patrick Moore with a brief excerpt from "The Sky at Night" in which he runs through part of his own "Caldwell Catalogue" of star clusters, nebulae and galaxies. Theoretical physicist Richard Feynman has no objection, as you might expect, to speaking of the wondrous science of astronomy, and we have an ... unexpected contribution from Professor Stephen Hawking as well. The words in the electro-pop offering from Kraftwerk tell us that "From the deeps of space radio stars are transmitting pulsars and quasars". Christine Paice's poem "A star against the eye" was written for National Science Week 2010 - "Science Made Marvellous".
A change of pace next with music by William Herschel, who not only was a composer of numerous symphonies, sonatas and concertos but was also Court Astronomer to George III and the discoverer of the planet Uranus. I have also included part of "Atlas eclipticalis" by John Cage, a piece of music that is made by superimposing musical staves over star charts, He writes that the piece is "a heavenly illustration of nirvana," and a performance "should be like looking into the sky on a clear night and seeing the stars."
We can't ignore the effects of stars on lovers, courtesy of Shakespeare, Keats and Puccini's aria from Tosca, whereas the hope or perhaps fear that the movements of the stars affects human fate is expressed by Siegfried Sassoon, Peter Grimes in Britten's opera, and in a catalogue of the stars in the zodiac in Vaughan Williams "Sons of Light".
The programme draws towards a close with hymns to the stars of evening, and finally, against a backdrop of Terry Riley's quirky "Sunrise of the Planetary Dream Collector", Louis MacNeice wrestles with the mind-blowing concept that the light from the stars began its journey millennia before we were born, and that we will never see the light that is setting out on that journey right now. Easier perhaps, to wish upon a star than to comprehend one...

2016, Prom 22: Ravel, Lera Auerbach and Debussy

Live at BBC Proms: Edward Gardner conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Crouch End Festival Chorus and violinist Vadim Gluzman in a new work by Lera Auerbach. Plus Debussy's La Mer.

Crouch End Festival Chorus
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Edward Gardner conductor

Russian-American composer Lera Auerbach's The Infant Minstrel and His Peculiar Menagerie is her Symphony No.3 - for solo violin, vocal soloists, choir and orchestra. Violinist Vadim Gluzman is the travelling musical storyteller who introduces a collection of wondrous tales by the mysterious author Erroneous Anonymous and Lera Auerbach herself. This voyage of imagination is inspired by the tradition of 'nonsense' poems, and has characters such as the Common Corporant, the Moon-Rider, and the Flying Pig, who enjoys sitting on a cloud watching the crowd.

There's also Ravel's shimmering fairy-tale suite, Debussy's glinting portrait of the sea and - in this Shakespeare anniversary year - Debussy's aborted incidental music for King Lear.

PROMS EXTRA: Shakespeare - Law and Lawyers
Continuing our exploration of the ways in which Shakespeare portrayed aspects of professional life, Geoffrey Robertson QC talks about the law and lawyers, contending that Shakespeare must either have studied at the Inns of Court or was close friends with those who did. Highlights of a discussion hosted by Anne McElvoy and recorded at Imperial College Union earlier this evening.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Garry Richardson

9am
My Favourite... Marches. This week Rob slips on a sturdy pair of boots and steps out to the accompaniment of some of his favourite marches - imperious Mozart, Tchaikovsky's patriotic Marche slave, the humbling Dead March from Handel's dramatic oratorio Saul, the famous Alla marcia that closes Sibelius's Karelia Suite and, most imposing of all, the grief-laden Marche funèbre from Berlioz's Grande symphonie funèbre et triomphale.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge and identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Rob's guest this week, sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, is the journalist and presenter Garry Richardson, who has been bringing sports news to radio listeners for over thirty years. Garry currently hosts 5 Live's Sportsweek, as well as presenting the sports section of Radio 4's Today programme, and has interviewed leading personalities from Muhammad Ali and David Beckham to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Clinton. Garry will be talking about his career and sharing music by composers including Gershwin, Bach and Verdi every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Medieval
Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Medieval era and the 12th-century Codex Calixtinus, a sort of 'complete pilgrim's guide' with sermons, travel advice, accounts of miracles... and music, including some of the earliest written-down examples of polyphonic composition.

11am
Rob's Proms Artist of the Week is Alban Gerhardt, who ranks among the most sensitive cellists of the younger generation. Gerhardt appears at London's Royal Albert Hall this Wednesday as the soloist in Dvorák's Cello Concerto. Throughout the week on Essential Classics we'll hear Gerhardt perform a rich variety of Romantic cello music. The repertoire ranges from the Bachian tones of a Max Reger solo suite and a rarely heard sonata by Alkan, to the subtly-woven sound-world of Fauré's First Cello Sonata and Enescu's powerful Sinfonia Concertante. Friday's featured work is Prokofiev's Symphony-Concerto, an affirmative piece in spite of the composer's declining health and the ever-present menace of Stalin's disapproval.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07m58x9)
George Butterworth and His Contemporaries, Folk Revival

George Butterworth and contemporaries: a visit to the home of the English Folk Song and Dance Society reveals how British folk tunes inspired a generation of composers.

A close friend of Vaughan Williams, George Butterworth was killed at the age of 31, during the battle of the Somme as dawn broke on the 5th August 1916. A war hero, he was awarded the Military Cross twice. Butterworth's legacy rests on a handful of pieces, notably his much loved English Idylls and folk-song arrangements. He belongs to a generation of composers who showed great promise early on, only to be denied the chance to reach musical maturity. Over the course of the week, the series also features the work of four contemporaries of Butterworth: fellow Englishmen Ernest Farrar and W Denis Browne, the Scottish composer Cecil Coles and the Australian composer Frederick Septimus Kelly. All of them, like Butterworth, died on active service during the Great War. Among the musical gems, there's the first ever recording of Denis Browne's ballet "The Comic Spirit", made for the series by the BBC Philharmonic. Their musical trajectory may be short, but this lost generation of composers nonetheless made an indelible mark on the face of British music.

Today Donald Macleod and Dr Kate Kennedy, an authority on this period, pay a visit to Cecil Sharp House, the home of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, to meet Laura Smyth, the Library and Archives Director. Looking through Butterworth's diaries and notebooks they find out how he helped to preserve our native folk music and how this revival influenced his contemporaries' music.

2016, Proms Chamber Music, PCM 03: An Erik Satie Cabaret

Live at the BBC Proms: French pianist Alexandre Tharaud and actor Alistair McGowan lead a cabaret of music and words celebrating Satie

Live from Cadogan Hall, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Alistair McGowan, actor
Jean Delescluse, singer
Alexandre Tharaud, piano

French pianist Alexandre Tharaud leads a cabaret of music and words celebrating one of the most curious and innovative composers of the 20th century.

He is joined by actor and impressionist Alistair McGowan (author of both a radio play and a documentary inspired by the composer) for a lunchtime foray featuring extracts from Satie's witty Memoirs of an Amnesiac.

Along the way we discover more about the composer of the solo-piano Gnossiennes and Gymnopédies: a committed eccentric who embraced Surrealism, invented the term 'furniture music' (later to become 'ambient music'), frequented Montmartre's bohemian Le Chat Noir cabaret club, became seduced by an esoteric strain of mystical Catholicism and for a period ate only food that was white in colour.

John Storgards was the first Finnish violinist to record Schumann's unusual Violin Concerto, but he now steps to the podium, making way for Austrian violinist Thomas Zehetmair. Surrounding Schumann's gem of a concerto are the first UK performance of Jörg Widmann's ethereal Armonia, the storm-tossed prelude from Sibelius's eerie depiction of Shakespeare's island realm and Carl Nielsen's landmark symphonic vision of good's triumph over evil.

PROMS EXTRA: Shakespeare - Shipwrecks and Sea Captains
In the third discussion about the way Shakespeare depicted different professions in his plays, veteran sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, the first man to circumnavigate the world single-handed, looks at playwright's view of the sea, shipwrecks and sea captains. He's joined on stage at Imperial College Union by New Generation Thinkers Dr John Gallagher from the University of Cambridge, and Nandini Das from the University of Liverpool, who chairs the discussions.

The Five Photographs that (You Didn't Know) Changed Everything, The Dogon

The Dogon. Jeanne Haffner on how aerial photography changed the spaces we live in.

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 organisation of our living spaces.
The birds-eye photograph of the Dogon tribe working their fields in Mali was taken by the French Africanist Marcel Griaule. He'd trained in aerial photography during the First World War and he argued that the Dogon landscape, seen from the air, revealed the patterns and secrets of the lives of its inhabitants, patterns which could teach Western city planners and architects how to build a happier society.

Jeanne Haffner is lecturer in the Department of History and Science at Harvard University.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Garry Richardson

9am
My favourite... marches. This week Rob slips on a sturdy pair of boots and steps out to the accompaniment of some of his favourite marches - imperious Mozart, Tchaikovsky's patriotic Marche slave, the humbling Dead March from Handel's dramatic oratorio Saul, the famous Alla marcia that closes Sibelius's Karelia Suite and, most imposing of all, the grief-laden Marche funèbre from Berlioz's Grande symphonie funèbre et triomphale.

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 this week, sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, is the journalist and presenter Garry Richardson, who has been bringing sports news to radio listeners for over thirty years. Garry currently hosts 5 Live's Sportsweek, as well as presenting the sports section of Radio 4's Today programme, and has interviewed leading personalities from Muhammad Ali and David Beckham to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Clinton. Garry will be talking about his career and sharing music by composers including Gershwin, Bach and Verdi every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Rob places Music in Time. Today the focus is on the Classical era and one of the works that earned Haydn the sobriquet 'father of the string quartet' - his groundbreaking Opus 20 set of 1772. The playwright Goethe famously described the string quartet as 'four rational people conversing' and it was Joseph Haydn who first rounded up that loquacious foursome and encouraged them to engage with each other.

11am
Rob's Proms Artist of the Week is Alban Gerhardt, who ranks among the most sensitive cellists of the younger generation. Gerhardt appears at London's Royal Albert Hall this Wednesday as the soloist in Dvorák's Cello Concerto. Throughout the week on Essential Classics we'll hear Gerhardt perform a rich variety of Romantic cello music. The repertoire ranges from the Bachian tones of a Max Reger solo suite and a rarely heard sonata by Alkan, to the subtly-woven sound-world of Fauré's First Cello Sonata and Enescu's powerful Sinfonia Concertante. Friday's featured work is Prokofiev's Symphony-Concerto, an affirmative piece in spite of the composer's declining health and the ever-present menace of Stalin's disapproval.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07m85y2)
George Butterworth and His Contemporaries, Love and Loss

FS Kelly's moving Elegy for Rupert Brooke and Butterworth's setting of AE Housman are among a rich seam of poetry explored by this set of composers.

A close friend of Vaughan Williams, George Butterworth was killed at the age of 31, during the battle of the Somme as dawn broke on the 5th August 1916. A war hero, he was awarded the Military Cross twice. Butterworth's legacy rests on a handful of pieces, notably his much loved English Idylls and folk-song arrangements. He belongs to a generation of composers who showed great promise early on, only to be denied the chance to reach musical maturity. Over the course of the week, we'll also hear the work of four contemporaries of Butterworth: fellow Englishmen Ernest Farrar and William Denis Browne, the Scottish composer Cecil Coles and the Australian composer Frederick Septimus Kelly. All of them, like Butterworth, died on active service during the Great War. Among the musical gems, there's the first ever recording of Denis Browne's ballet "The Comic Spirit", made for the series by the BBC Philharmonic. Their musical trajectory may be short, but this lost generation of composers nonetheless has made an indelible mark on the face of British music.

Donald Macleod and Dr Kate Kennedy examine why the Elizabethans' attitude to culture, poetry and the arts was much admired by composer W Denis Browne. They also discuss how the outbreak of World War One influenced the kind of poetry that caught popular attention.

Mahler: Symphony No 3 in D minor

Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano),
London Symphony Chorus (women's voices),
Tiffin Boys' Choir,
London Symphony Orchestra,
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.

[First broadcast on Friday 29th July]

Followed by recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

Schubert: Symphony No.9 in C major 'Great'

Steven Osborne (piano)
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

In his bittersweet Piano Concerto, Britten set out to exploit the piano's 'enormous compass, percussive qualities and suitability for figuration'. The result is a true bravura piece whose razor-sharp edge conceals a gregarious smile. Alongside the first London performance of Alberto Ginastera's very Argentine view of the symphony orchestra comes the inexorable momentum of Schubert's most invigorating symphony, his 'Great' Ninth.

PROMS EXTRA: George Eliot in Germany
Novelist Patricia Duncker, discusses George Eliot, her travels in Germany in the 19th century, when she spent eight months in the country, and the German music she refers to in her novels and diaries. Duncker's novel Sophie and the Sybil is a fictional version of George Eliot's time in Germany. Alongside her on stage is Clare Walker-Gore of Trinity College, Cambridge, one of the academics selected last year by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Council to be a New Generation Thinker. The host is Anne McElvoy.

Producer: Zahid Warley.

TUE 22:00 Why Music? (b06cwbp3)
Author Philip Ball asks why music is such a universal human trait. How do we recognise music, where does it come from, and how does it affect us so deeply? Philip Ball speaks to scientists and musicians from around the world, including Tecumseh Fitch, Joe Stilgoe, Aniruddh Patel, Robert Zatorre, Laurel Trainor, and Daniel Levitin to explore these questions and some of the insights provided by neuroscience and evolutionary theory.

Little in music is universal, and little that is universal really matters. What is universal is the ability to make music, and most of that comes from us being habitual pattern seekers.

As Tecumseh Fitch and others point out, perception of relative pitch seems basically human and effortless. Birds for example do not repond to transposed birdsong. But we can pick the same tune out from many guises.

Philip looks at the power of emotion in music, and we can understand at least some of that. This does little to reduce the power that music has, but it also does nothing to tell the whole story.

Music seems to derive its power and significance in its ability to carry meaning without words. The lack of semantic specificity is what enables it to carry several, even contradictory, meanings at once. Can we regard it as a projection of human experience?

Where did it come from? To ask if it is adaptive or parasitic might be beside the point. We have music because of the way our brains are. To get rid of it would involve changing our brains profoundly. As Ani Patel describes, it could be regarded as a transformative technology in the history of man. Any description of where it came from would bear little relation to its significance and use now.

First broadcast in Spetember 2015.

TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b07m5gd7)
Max Reinhardt explores the Alan Lomax archive

Adventures in music; ancient to future. Max Reinhardt dips into the Alan Lomax archive of over 17,000 recordings made from 1946 into the 1990s. Lomax spent his whole career capturing the musical performances of everyday people and their songs across the globe. Navigating through this great mass of historical audio treasures is the archive's guardian and curator Nathan Salsburg, who joins Max to share some of his favourite selections.

Music in Time: Modern
Rob places Music in Time. Today Rob looks at the Modern era and fifteen minutes that changed music - Schoenberg's Suite for Piano, Op. 25. It's the first work that Schoenberg composed entirely according to the principles of serialism, the system he had devised to bring order to the chaos that ensued after the dissolution of tonality in the early years of the 20th century. Schoenberg, though, always has one eye on the past, and despite its modernity, his suite has its roots firmly in the Baroque.

11am

A war hero, he was awarded the Military Cross twice. Butterworth's legacy rests on a handful of pieces, notably his much loved English Idylls and folk-song arrangements.

The gothic horror story of Duke Bluebeard prompted some of the most imaginative, descriptive and shocking music Bartók would write. With its huge orchestra, underpinned in this concert performance by the mighty Royal Albert Hall organ, Bartók's score speaks of the darkness of Bluebeard's vast castle and the cold-blooded murder of his six wives.

Under Principal Conductor Charles Dutoit, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conjures up Bartók's unsettling realm after Dvorák's Cello Concerto, which the composer believed 'outstrips the other two concertos of mine'.

WED 22:00 Sunday Feature (b0505m8k)
Beautiful Death

Vienna is a city that celebrates death like no other culture. Death is a friend that stays with us from birth until death. Only in Vienna is there an idea of 'beautiful death'.

Stephen Johnson connects Mahler's beliefs about death to contemporaneous Viennese funeral customs, and particularly the idea of 'schöner Tod' - a 'beautiful death'. He visits both the grand and intriguing Central Cemetery in Vienna, which is the largest necropolis in Europe, and also the more intimate cemetery in Grinzing where Mahler is buried.

Stephen talks to Professor Julian Johnson about Mahler's fear of death and the many guises in which death appears in his music, and he relates what we know of Mahler's attitude to death to evidence from Dr Wittigo Keller, an expert on Viennese funeral customs, and Dr Isabella Ackerl, the author of a book on Vienna and the idea of beautiful death. Mahler was terrified of being buried alive and Stephen finds out just how often this actually happened in Mahler's Vienna from Dr Eduard Winter at the Narrenturm, which is now the pathological wing of Vienna's Natural History Museum.

Viennese folk music was also permeated with tales of death and Stephen visit Agnes Palmisano, a renowned singer of Wienerlied, at her heuriger in Grinzing to discuss the influence that these songs may have had on Mahler's death music. Freudian psychoanalyst Dr Jeanne Wolff Bernstein sheds light of what Freud may have meant in his theory of the death instinct and Stephen connects these beliefs to Mahler's 'Das Lied von der Erde'.

Mahler's unfinished 10th Symphony bookends the programme, and there are also clips from the Funeral March of his 5th Symphony, his 4th and 9th Symphonies, Kindertotenlieder (the songs on the death of children) and Das Lied von der Erde. Special location recordings of Agnes Palmisano with Walter Stoyka and friends in their heuriger, and from Die Strottern in their garden, clarify the influence of Viennese folk music on Mahler's own death music.

First broadcast in January 2015.

The Five Photographs that (You Didn't Know) Changed Everything, The Broom Cottages

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 way Britain sees what has come to be known as its cultural heritage.

The man who took the photo, W. Jerome Harrison, launched a scheme for recording the country's past in which amateur photographers up and down the land took pictures of the buildings which were important them. Wiki-buildings and English Heritage do this now on a much grander scale. But Elizabeth Edwards argues that the mass participation of people in defining what matters about the past began with Harrison, and changed the way in which a nation viewed itself.

Elizabeth Edwards is Research Professor of Photographic History and Director of the Photographic History Research Centre at De Montfort University, Leicester.

Thursday - Rob Cowan with Garry Richardson

9am
My favourite... marches. This week Rob slips on a sturdy pair of boots and steps out to the accompaniment of some of his favourite marches - imperious Mozart, Tchaikovsky's patriotic Marche slave, the humbling Dead March from Handel's dramatic oratorio Saul, the famous Alla marcia that closes Sibelius's Karelia Suite and, most imposing of all, the grief-laden Marche funèbre from Berlioz's Grande symphonie funèbre et triomphale.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge. Two pieces of music are played together: can you identify them?

10am
Rob's guest this week, sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, is the journalist and presenter Garry Richardson, who has been bringing sports news to radio listeners for over thirty years. Garry currently hosts 5 Live's Sportsweek, as well as presenting the sports section of Radio 4's Today programme, and has interviewed leading personalities from Muhammad Ali and David Beckham to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Clinton. Garry will be talking about his career and sharing music by composers including Gershwin, Bach and Verdi every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Rob places Music in Time. Rob heads back to the Baroque era to hear an orchestral suite from Lully's opera Atys, assembled, not by Lully himself, but by the pioneering Dutch publisher Estiennes Roger a decade or so after the composer's untimely death. Roger's commercial instincts proved to be spot-on, and the suite from Atys was not only popular but also enormously influential, helping to kickstart the development of the Baroque orchestral suite.

11am
Rob's Proms Artist of the Week is Alban Gerhardt, who ranks among the most sensitive cellists of the younger generation. Gerhardt appears at London's Royal Albert Hall this Wednesday as the soloist in Dvorák's Cello Concerto. Throughout the week on Essential Classics we'll hear Gerhardt perform a rich variety of Romantic cello music. The repertoire ranges from the Bachian tones of a Max Reger solo suite and a rarely heard sonata by Alkan, to the subtly-woven sound-world of Fauré's First Cello Sonata and Enescu's powerful Sinfonia Concertante. Friday's featured work is Prokofiev's Symphony-Concerto, an affirmative piece in spite of the composer's declining health and the ever-present menace of Stalin's disapproval.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07m85y6)
George Butterworth and His Contemporaries, Over the Hills and Far Away

The search for a "new sound" is illustrated in a walk along the Thames and a lurid tale of revenge.

A close friend of Vaughan Williams, George Butterworth was killed at the age of 31, during the battle of the Somme as dawn broke on the 5th August 1916. A war hero, he was awarded the Military Cross twice. Butterworth's legacy rests on a handful of pieces, notably his much loved English Idylls and folk-song arrangements. He belongs to a generation of composers who showed great promise early on, only to be denied the chance to reach musical maturity. Over the course of the week, we'll also hear the work of four contemporaries of Butterworth: fellow Englishmen Ernest Farrar and W Denis Browne, the Scottish composer Cecil Coles and the Australian composer Frederick Septimus Kelly. All of them, like Butterworth, died on active service during the Great War. Among the musical gems, there's the first ever recording of Denis Browne's ballet "The Comic Spirit", made for the series by the BBC Philharmonic. Their musical trajectory may be short, but this lost generation of composers nonetheless has made an indelible mark on the face of British music.

In today's instalment, Donald Macleod is joined once more by Dr Kate Kennedy, an authority on this period. While Butterworth's popular English Idylls reflect the popularity of pastoral and folk idioms, in fact the musical language of these composers draws on a broad net of influences.

Simon Callow Reads From the German Romantics
A literary accompaniment to tonight's prom. Actor and writer Simon Callow reads from some of the German Romantic authors, playwrights and poets who inspired Johannes Brahms. Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill.

Peter Serkin, piano
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Oliver Knussen, conductor

When Brahms came to write his Second Piano Concerto more than two decades after his First, out went the confident swagger of a man in his prime and in came a feeling of intimacy and expectation.

Oliver Knussen balances the Brahms with the far-flung world of Der nächtliche Wanderer ('The Night Wanderer') by Dutch composer and conductor Reinbert de Leeuw. Inspired by Friedrich Hölderlin's short poem of the same name, this deftly-coloured symphonic poem has been described as 'a bath of beauty' and 'a high-density monument in music'.

THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b051zxlh)
From Convent to Concert Hall

Dr Kate Kennedy appraises four female string players from different eras and locations who were all pioneering in their own lifetimes, assessing their impact in the concert hall. In the 18th century, female performers were gaining acceptance and even prominence across Europe as singers in choirs and on the opera stage. But as instrumentalists, progress on the concert platform was slower.

The story begins in Venice, where the four enlightened Ospedale institutions gave disadvantaged girls an education, especially in music. Although many of the students at the Ospedale della Pietà or the Ospedale della Mendicanti gave up their musical studies on marrying or on entering a convent, one notable performer, Maddalena Lombardini, born in 1745, gained prominence as a soloist and as a composer. In the 19th century a young French cellist, Lise Cristianti, caught the attention of Mendelssohn whilst giving concerts in Leipzig, aged 18. She subsequently undertook a perilous journey across Siberia, performing across the region. Another cellist to reach prominence at the start of the 20th century, Beatrice Harrison, is still known today for her recordings outdoors with nightingales, but she also had a serious professional career, as Elgar's preferred interpreter of his cello concerto, and as inspiration for Delius. The final candidate is Rebecca Clarke, whose reputation as a composer has grown since her death, but she was also a prominent viola player.

The Five Photographs that (You Didn't Know) Changed Everything, The Tichborne Claimant

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 legal system.
In 1866 a butcher sat for his photograph in the remote town of Wagga Wagga, Australia. Three years later this likeness had Britain transfixed. Jennifer Tucker tells the story of how it was central to the longest legal battle in 19th-century England, and sparked a debate about evidence, the law, ethics and facial recognition that has continued ever since.

Jennifer Tucker is Associate Professor of History and Science in Society at Wesleyan University, USA.

Music in Time: Romantic
Today the spotlight is on the Romantic era and Liszt's Transcendental Studies after Paganini, the digit-defying demands of which pushed pianistic pyrotechnics to the limits on their publication in 1838. Just as Paganini's writing for the violin had redefined what was technically possible on that instrument, Liszt rewrote the piano rulebook, producing works of great charm and brilliance that for many years were unplayable by all but a handful of pianists.

George Butterworth and His Contemporaries, A Lost Generation

Two major orchestral scores from 1914 and 1915, the broadcast premiere of WD Browne's ballet The Comic Spirit and Butterworth's Fantasia, the last music he wrote.

A close friend of Vaughan Williams, George Butterworth was killed at the age of 31, during the battle of the Somme as dawn broke on the 5th August 1916. A war hero, he was awarded the Military Cross twice. Butterworth's legacy rests on a handful of pieces, notably his much loved English Idylls and folk-song arrangements.

Tonight's Prom marks the first instalment of all three of Stravinsky's landmark ballets for the Ballet Russes company, all performed this weekend by Scottish orchestras. In the vivid folk tale of a puppet springing to life, Stravinsky had the starting point for his stylistic breakthrough, Petrushka, a ballet that would depict Russia with 'quick tempos, smells of Russian food, sweat and glistening leather boots'.

The first part of a BBC commission from Scottish composer Helen Grime - a two-part work whose complementary second 'Picture' can be heard in Prom 30 - prefaces this concert's arrival in Russia via all the despair, passion and determination of Tchaikovsky's heart-rending Violin Concerto.

A Most Ingenious Paradox: Loving G&S to Death?

Mike Leigh's operatic directorial debut took place at ENO last year with his production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance", due to be revived in 2017.

Leigh once berated directors for failing to understand G&S, resulting in "boring, bland, sentimental, self-conscious, often gratuitously camp productions, which entirely miss their point". So what is their point, and how should they be performed in the 21st century?

The tradition of Gilbert and Sullivan performance is still alive and kicking both in the UK and internationally. University G&S societies enjoy healthy membership, local amateur companies still exist, and there is a dedicated international festival in Harrogate.

But it can be argued that what keeps G&S alive is also what kills it. Cosy, comfortable urbanity, middle-brow high jinks, the old tradition-bound productions of D'Oyly Carte, and the reluctance of the British musical establishment to take it all seriously.
Martin Handley, who himself has conducted many productions, examines the paradox that is the continuing survival of G&S.

He speaks to directors Mike Leigh, who wants to let the operettas speak for themselves, Sir Jonathan Miller, whose famous production of The Mikado continues to be revived over 30 years on, and young director Sasha Regan, whose all-male productions are bringing the works to a whole new audience. Martin also speaks to singers Barry Clark, who speaks of the dying days of the old D'Oyly Carte Company, Dame Felicity Palmer, who has taken on several of the problematic "older woman" roles, and also younger singers who haven't grown up with the tradition. He also hears from the amateur scene, and speaks to G&S scholars Dr Ian Bradley and Dr Carolyn Williams who reflect on the social landscape of G&S participation and fandom, the male-dominated world of the lyric-quoting obsessive and the rather conflicted female view - great fun to perform but what of the inherent Gilbertian misogyny and the somewhat cardboard cut-out emotional style?

This is an exploration of the state of G&S in the contemporary cultural landscape : its tenacious survival, the various routes it takes to get to the stage, both amateur and professional, and its unexpected renaissance in Universities and colleges, where it is blossoming and where much of its future may lie. Is the occasional professional production enough to keep it going, and to maintain or revive cultural credibility, or is G&S more likely to live on the traditional high Victorian style in the amateur world, in the UK at least?

First broadcast in June 2015.

The weekend of Scottish ensembles continues with a visit from the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland, whose Late Night Prom marks the Shakespeare anniversary with Duke Ellington's jazz tribute to the Bard, Such Sweet Thunder.
With instruments taking the roles of actors, Ellington's piece broke new ground when it appeared in 1957 as part of a 12-part Shakespeare-themed album, and it still feels entirely fresh today. The NYJOS welcomes back previous collaborators - saxophonist Iain Ballamy performing some of his compositions such as All Men Amen and Floater along with pianist/vocalist Liane Carroll - to perform a series of arrangements by Malcolm Edmonstone, including songs made popular by Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Carole King and others.
