Live from the Royal Albert Hall
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The John Wilson Orchestra
John Wilson, conductor

Including, during the interval, at approx 7.50pm: Proms Extra - An Introduction to the Music of Gershwin.
George Gershwin could be said to be one of the first "crossover" artists. As a composer he wrote in both classical and popular genres, with many of his larger works being some of the most popular amongst 20th century audiences. He was a prolific songwriter, setting clever and often witty lyrics provided by his brother Ira Gershwin.
Clemency Burton-Hill, theatre music expert Edward Seckerson and director, composer and orchestrator Jason Carr provide an introduction to Gershwin's Music. Tonight's conductor John Wilson also joins the discussion.
Recorded earlier today at Imperial College Union.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07nmcyk)
Stephen Hugh-Jones

Stephen Hugh-Jones is a fellow of King's College Cambridge and has spent 45 years researching - and living among - the Amazonian Indians who live on the Equator, in South-Eastern Colombia. They are still one of the most remote peoples on earth, and when Dr Hugh-Jones and his wife Christine first went to live there, in the late 1960s, this was a people, and a culture, completely untouched by modern life. This was partly because people were afraid of them; they had a reputation for being dangerous and cannibalistic.

In fact, Dr Hugh-Jones discovered that really they were a pacific people, with a very sophisticated set of religious beliefs. And music is a key part of their religious ceremonies. For Private Passions, Stephen Hugh-Jones brings along musical instruments that he has brought back from Colombia, and recordings he has made of music there.

He chooses, too, music which he took with him to listen to when he was living so far from home, particularly Bach - who caused a surprising reaction in the Amazon. Other choices include Purcell, Alfred Brendel playing Schubert, Beethoven's String Quartet No 15 in A minor, and Cuban music played by an African band.

Prom 27: Helen Grime, Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard with violinist Pekka Kuusisto perform Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto and Stravinsky's Petrushka.

Presented by Tom Service from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Helen Grime: Two Eardley Pictures (I - Catterline in Winter)
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto in D major

Stravinsky: Petrushka

Pekka Kuusisto (violin)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard (conductor)

This 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.

First broadcast live, 5th August 2016.

Live at BBC Proms: the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Sakari Oramo in Mahler's 5th Symphony, Haydn's Symphony No.34 and Charlotte Bray's Falling in the Fire, with cellist Guy Johnston.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Haydn: Symphony No.34 in D minor
Charlotte Bray: Falling in the Fire (BBC commission: world premiere)

8.10 PROMS INTERVAL: What's in a Name?
No-one attributed more importance to naming the baby than Laurence Sterne's Walter Shandy but his attempts to ensure his son's future success came to naught and all because he couldn't get his trousers on. As the 2016 list of top baby names is revealed to a waiting world, Sophie Coulombeau explores literary archives to uncover the true story of What's In a Name? Just the fears, hopes and frustrations, ambitions and proclivities of British society over the centuries.

8.30
Mahler: Symphony No 5 in C sharp minor

Guy Johnston, cello
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

The latest in the series of Proms cello concertos is a powerful new work from Charlotte Bray, an expression of 'moral outrage' at the destruction of the ancient city of Palmyra, Syria, last summer, after which 'everything changed' in the composer's compositional outlook.

Similarly, something changed in Mahler when he came to write his Fifth Symphony. Not only had he survived a haemorrhage that had nearly killed him, but he had also met and fallen in love with Alma Schindler, for whom the Fifth Symphony's ardent Adagietto is a love song. Before that, Haydn's Symphony No. 34 makes its first appearance at the Proms.

Things Might Change or Cease

When Maggie sees an illusionist on television she becomes convinced that he is her half-brother and that through him she and her sisters Lena and Nell will finally find the father, Austin Birtwhistle, who walked out on them 37 years before.

Linda Marshall Griffiths' original play explores illusion and disillusion, the boundaries of love and the extremes of grief as a family, fractured by abandonment, tread the emotional hinterland of reconciliation. Echoing Shakespeare's King Lear, we see Austin, an old man, raving on Brighton Beach, as he wanders through the gaps in his own life, conjuring all the things he left behind.
Maggie ..... Julia Ford
Lena ..... Deborah McAndrew
Nell ..... Jo Hartley
Ivan ..... Tom Rolinson
Austin ..... Oliver Cotton

Simon's acclaimed history books have been published in over 45 languages and include Jerusalem: The Biography, Catherine the Great and Potemkin and Young Stalin. His latest book, The Romanovs 1613-1918, chronicles the stories of twenty tsars and tsarinas, and is already a bestseller in the UK, Australia and the USA. Simon has also won literary prizes for his fiction work. He has written the first two instalments of a trilogy of thriller-love-stories set in Russia.

Rob places Music in Time as he heads back to the Romantic period with Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries. This curtain raiser demonstrates Wagner's ability to combine music (rhythm and leitmotif) and drama (the arrival by winged steeds of warrior maidens returning from battle) to create a unique theatrical experience.

10.45am
Rob's Proms artist of the day is the composer-conductor Thomas Adès, who takes to the rostrum in tonight's BBC Prom to conduct music by Prokofiev, Beethoven and Francisco Coll, as well as his own composition, Lieux retrouvés. This morning Rob features Adès conducting his transcription of Francois Couperin's Les Baricades Mistérieuses.

Film directors have reached for these works by Strauss and Holst in their attempts to explain the human condition against the infinite background of space.
The depiction of astrological characters in The Planets, from the cheeky game-play of Mercury to the shattering impact of Mars, could be made for the resonance of the Royal Albert Hall. The power of Strauss?s Also sprach Zarathustra is no less cinematic.

Leos Janacek (1854-1928), A Very Strange Fairytale

Donald Macleod explores Janacek's youth with a selection of rare chamber works. Including extracts from his sparkling Nursery Rhymes for choir and ensemble.

The life of Leos Janacek (1854-1928) is one of the strangest in all classical music. Virtually ignored for most of his career, in his late 60s Janacek abruptly began to compose some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, whilst all the time hopelessly and unrequitedly in love with a woman more than half his age, Kamila Stösslová. Yet once upon a time Janacek was best known as a composer of chamber music. This week, Donald Macleod explores the composer's life through his instrumental and small-scale compositions, revealing the little-known story of his struggle for recognition.

We begin the series with Janacek's youth and musical upbringing in his native Moravia, as he makes his name as a composer and woos his wife Zdenka - his future companion of nearly half a century of turbulent married life. Donald Macleod presents a selection of music written during his studies in Leipzig - city of Bach and Mendelssohn, a set of variations for his new beloved, and a mature masterpiece looking back on his own idyllic youth.

The Book that Changed Me, Jude Kelly on Little Women

Jude Kelly, the artistic director of Southbank Centre, describes how "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott mirrored her own experiences growing up in a lively Liverpool home. Like the March family, Kelly grew up surrounded by sisters, and with a father who was often absent. She was inspired by the way Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy grew throughout the novel. "Each daughter is tested against her own frailties and foibles to see if she can become a woman of substance in her own terms ... and I wanted to be a woman of substance too," she says. And the book helped her come to terms with the loss of her baby sister Caroline of multiple sclerosis. "Maybe this is the biggest influence 'Little Women' had on me. It made me think about death as an inevitable part of our lives.

Leos Janacek (1854-1928), Beloved Moravia

Donald Macleod tells the tragic story of the death of Janacek's daughter Olga, and the effect it had on the composer.

The life of Leos Janacek (1854-1928) is one of the strangest in all classical music. Virtually ignored for most of his career, in his late 60s Janacek abruptly began to compose some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, whilst all the time hopelessly and unrequitedly in love with a woman more than half his age, Kamila Stösslová. Yet once upon a time Janacek was best known as a composer of chamber music. This week, Donald Macleod explores the composer's life through his instrumental and small-scale compositions, revealing the little-known story of his struggle for recognition.

By the first decade of the 20th century, Janacek was nearly 50 years old and yet had barely registered as a ripple on Europe's musical scene. As he struggled to make his name, his world was to be shattered by the death of his only daughter, Olga. Donald Macleod introduces a politically-charged piano sonata, plus a defiant - and highly-unusual - capriccio for piano left hand and ensemble.

Continuing our focus on the cello this summer, Colin Matthews's Berceuse for Dresden takes inspiration from the eight bells of the Dresden church at which it was premiered.
In Mahler's exploration of darkness and radiance in his culminating synthesis of song and symphony, Das Lied von der Erde, he altered the parameters of vocal and orchestral expression for ever.

Leos Janacek (1854-1928), The Overgrown Path

Still languishing in obscurity and with his health failing, a dejected Janacek composes a unique piano masterpiece: his suite On an Overgrown Path. Presented by Donald Macleod.

The life of Leos Janacek (1854-1928) is one of the strangest in all classical music. Virtually ignored for most of his career, in his late 60s Janacek abruptly began to compose some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, whilst all the time hopelessly and unrequitedly in love with a woman more than half his age, Kamila Stösslová. Yet once upon a time Janacek was best known as a composer of chamber music. This week, Donald Macleod explores the composer's life through his instrumental and small-scale compositions, revealing the little-known story of his struggle for recognition.

The first decade of the 20th century was a depressing one for Janacek. Now well into his fifties, he remained a relatively obscure composer from Moravia, without any real success in Prague, let alone internationally. His health failing, Janacek poured his innermost thoughts into a unique piano masterpiece: his suite On an Overgrown Path. Donald Macleod explores the collection, as well as a rare work for cello and piano based on a Russian folk tale.

Daniel Barenboim returns with his orchestra of young Arabs and Israelis, and with another iconic musician, Martha Argerich. Composer Jörg Widmann harnessed the energy of Beethoven's fast movements in the 'exercise in fury and rhythmic insistence' that is his Con brio.
After Liszt's thunderously virtuosic First Piano Concerto, Daniel Barenboim - who conducted Wagner's Ring cycle at the Proms in 2013 - concludes with powerful excerpts from three of the composer's operas.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b06cb0hz)
Edmund de Waal, Orhan Pamuk

Orhan Pamuk, novelist and Nobel Prize winner is in conversation with Edmund de Waal - the potter and best-selling author of the Hare with Amber Eyes - who has been on a quest to explore the history of porcelain. Philip Dodd chairs a conversation ranging across the colours white and red, appreciating and conserving craft skills, the way historic objects are displayed in museums, and the changing identity of cities such as Dresden, Jingdezhen and Istanbul.

Orhan Pamuk's new novel is called A Strangeness In My Mind.

Edmund de Waal's new book The White Road: a pilgrimage of sorts is being read as Radio 4's Book of the Week this week. He has also curated white: a project in the Royal Academy Library and Print Room. It runs from September 16th to January 3rd.
He's also worked with the Aurora Orchestra to create a series of events called On White which includes the world premiere of a new commission from the Scottish composer Martin Suckling called Psalm and a performance of Hans Zender's 'composed interpretation' of Schubert's Winterreise.

Producer: Robyn Read.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b04yb7nl)
The Book that Changed Me, Sir Paul Nurse on Conjectures and Refutations

Nobel Prize-winning geneticist Sir Paul Nurse explains how Karl Popper's "Conjectures and Refutations" rescued his career as a research scientist. He read it at a time when he was dispirited by his experimental research methods. Popper's work "helped me out of my intellectual crisis," he says. "It showed me a way to think about my experiments and how to use them to develop more general scientific ideas." The philosopher recommended a new way of thinking about what to study, based on "intuitive leaps of the imagination". This procedure - of a cycle of bold conjectures, which are tested and refuted - dramatically liberated Sir Paul's thinking about how to advance scientific knowledge.
Producer: Smita Patel.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (b07nmvml)
Verity Sharp with an Edinburgh Festival concert

BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals: Verity Sharp presents a brilliant line-up of musicians for a Late Junction concert. Playing live are Trembling Bells, Alastair Savage, Matt Rogers, electric voice theatre, and SongWorks choir. Please join us at the BBC's new broadcast and audience hub at George Heriot's School in Edinburgh ...

We'll also be hearing from performance artist FK Alexander and improv-noise band Okishima Island Tourist Association, whose piece '(I Could Go On Singing) Over The Rainbow' explores the extreme edge of Judy Garland at the Summerhall Festival 2016.

Scottish folk-rock group Trembling Bells formed in 2008 around drummer Alex Neilson. They have released five studio albums, and also collaborated with Bonnie Prince Billy and Mike Heron.

Fiddle player Alastair Savage was born and raised in Ardrossan, on the Ayrshire coast. As well as releasing albums under his own name, he is a member of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Matt Rogers has won the Paul Hamlyn Foundation Award for Composers, and produced work for the Royal Opera House, Aldeburgh Music, and the New York Metropolitan Museum Of Art. His latest album SK?-1 is a suite of solo scorchers belched straight out of a GravesEnd Casio SK1.

Formed in 1985, electric voice theatre is a multi-disciplinary music-theatre ensemble. Their Edinburgh Fringe show 'Superwomen of Science' celebrates great female scientists through modern, specially commissioned music from some of the UK's leading female composers.

SongWorks is a community choir in Edinburgh. They are part of Songlines, a city-wide event taking place on the middle Sunday of the International Festival inviting everyone to take part in a unique celebration of singing.

2016 Queen's Hall Series, Episode 9

British-born pianist and polymath Stephen Hough brings a programme of player-composers to this year's Edinburgh International Festival recital. Schubert's introverted Sonata in A minor written after a nearly fatal bout of syphilis has a tragic and fatalistic trajectory towards death. This complements César Franck's Prelude, Chorale and Fugue - inspired by the master of this form, JS Bach, and revealing Franck's need to write spiritually as a reaction against the many showpieces of the day. Stephen Hough's own Piano Sonata III 'Trinitas' is a commission from the Catholic magazine The Tablet, celebrating their 125th anniversary, and received its premiere in April 2016 in Australia. As he says himself it 'is not a great declaration of faith, but just an abstract idea of three as a concept'. Hough rounds off the recital with the contrasting dazzling virtuosity of piano-composer Liszt pianist.

Schubert: Sonata in A minor, D784
Franck: Prelude, Chorale and Fugue

In today's highlights, trombonist Christian Lindberg plays a virtuosic arrangement of three movements from Stravinsky's Firebird and the Doric String Quartet perform the second of Beethoven's Opus 59 'Razumovsky' quartets, thought to have been inspired in part by Beethoven gazing up at the stars, "contemplating the harmony of the spheres".

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its Chief Conductor Designate Thomas Dausgaard round off this weekend's Stravinsky/Scottish series with the work that changed music for ever. In The Rite of Spring rhythm was shockingly prioritised over harmony - and pounding, jagged, brutal rhythm at that.

One of The Rite's most impactful relatives is the Scythian Suite by Stravinsky's compatriot Prokofiev, a blazing orchestral canvas that forms the perfect foil to the heartfelt beauty of Tchaikovsky's charming First Piano Concerto, performed by Kirill Gerstein in a new critical edition which, he says, 'allows us to return to Tchaikovsky's original intentions'.

Leos Janacek (1854-1928), Success!

In 1916, after nearly half a century of work, Janacek finally tasted success as his opera Jenufa was performed at Prague's famous opera house. Donald Macleod explores the aftermath.

The life of Leos Janacek (1854-1928) is one of the strangest in all classical music. Virtually ignored for most of his career, in his late 60s Janacek abruptly began to compose some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, whilst all the time hopelessly and unrequitedly in love with a woman more than half his age, Kamila Stösslová. Yet once upon a time Janacek was best known as a composer of chamber music. This week, Donald Macleod explores the composer's life through his instrumental and small-scale compositions, revealing the little-known story of his struggle for recognition.

As Europe went to war, Janacek was in the midst of what his biographer John Tyrrell called "a wasteland", as his repeated attempts to get his works performed outside his native Moravia fell on deaf ears. And then... In 1916 his opera Jenufa - composed more than a decade before - finally premiered at Prague's opera house, propelling the 61-year-old composer into the column inches and conversations of Europe's musical cognoscenti. It would precipitate perhaps the most extraordinary and turbulent final decade of any composer in history. Donald Macleod explores two major works for piano and violin, before previewing Janacek's remarkable last years with a complete performance of his First String Quartet, subtitled Kreutzer Sonata.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b07nmlyt)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Simon Sebag Montefiore

9am
My Favourite... Duos. Rob shares his favourite examples of these works for two musicians, where each artist's response to the other is put under the spotlight, creating what is perhaps the ultimate expression of chamber music. Rob's choices explore a selection of instrumental combinations including duos for strings by Bartók, a duo for pianos by Schubert, and duos for percussion, and guitars.

9.30am
Take part in today's challenge. Two pieces of music are played together - can you work out what they are?

10am
Rob's guest, historian, writer and television presenter Simon Sebag Montefiore, will be sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, including works by Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky that link to his writing on Russia, every day at 10am. Simon's acclaimed history books have been published in over 45 languages and include Jerusalem: The Biography, Catherine the Great and Potemkin and Young Stalin. His latest book, The Romanovs 1613-1918, chronicles the stories of twenty tsars and tsarinas, and is already a bestseller in the UK, Australia and the USA. Simon has also won literary prizes for his fiction work. He has written the first two instalments of a trilogy of thriller-love-stories set in Russia. The second in the series, 'One Night in Winter', won the Best Political Novel of the Year Prize and was longlisted for the Orwell Prize.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Rob places Music in Time. The spotlight is on the Classical period and Beethoven's 32 Variations in C minor, whichs take the form beyond the 'Sturm und Drang' ('storm and stress') style of Haydn to a new level of intensity and drama.

10.45am
In anticipation of tonight's Prom of Janácek's opera The Makropulos Affair, starring Finnish soprano Karita Mattila, Rob features her unique vocal talents in music by Sibelius - his musical depiction of the creation of the world by the Spirit of Nature and Mother of the Seas, as told in the Kalevala, the Finnish folk epic.

Philharmonia Voices (men's voices)
Philharmonia Orchestra
Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor

Mahler's First Symphony isn't just the opening chapter of the composer's spiritual autobiography, it's also an awakening in itself. From hushed strings and woodwind cuckoos, it breaks into a forthright stride towards, eventually, a blazing affirmation of camaraderie and confidence.
Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the symphony here with his own Philharmonia Orchestra, following meditations on loss from Arnold Schoenberg and centenary composer Henri Dutilleux, whose The Shadows of Time was inspired by the diaries of Anne Frank and written to mark 50 years since the end of the Second World War.

[First broadcast on Monday 8th August]

Followed by recordings of this week's Prom's Artists.

FRI 18:30 Composer of the Week (b07nmqyw)
Leos Janacek (1854-1928), Your Kamila

Donald Macleod explores Janacek's turbulent, lovestruck, masterpiece-filled final years, as he drew inspiration from his unrequited love for Kamila Stösslová.

The life of Leos Janacek (1854-1928) is one of the strangest in all classical music. Virtually ignored for most of his career, in his late 60s Janacek abruptly began to compose some of the greatest masterpieces of the 20th century, whilst all the time hopelessly and unrequitedly in love with a woman more than half his age, Kamila Stösslová. Yet once upon a time Janacek was best known as a composer of chamber music. This week, Donald Macleod explores the composer's life through his instrumental and small-scale compositions, revealing the little-known story of his struggle for recognition.

Janacek's breakthrough success in the late 1910s coincided with his falling head-over-heels in love with a young married woman, Kamila Stösslova. For the last decade of his life, the composer existed in a strange, woozy idyll of unrequited love and astonishing musical fertility as he composed masterpiece upon masterpiece - among them the Sinfonietta and Glagolitic Mass and the operas Katya Kabanova, The Cunning Little Vixen and The Makropoulos Case - all written around his 70th birthday. Donald Macleod explores Janacek's chaotic personal life and musical genius in his final years, with a complete performance of the composer's Second String Quartet (Intimate Letters), inspired by more than 700 letters Janacek wrote to his beloved Kamila.

A dream team gathers for Janacek's late, great existential masterpiece The Makropulos Affair. This tragic satire is powered by a score that contains some of the composer's most extreme and alluring music.

FRI 22:15 Free Thinking (b0775023)
Landmark: Tarkovsky's Stalker

In a special Landmark edition, Matthew Sweet discusses Tarkovsky's 1979 film Stalker with the director Sophie Fiennes, the journalist Konstantin Von Eggert, film critic Larushka Ivan-Zadeh, the writer Geoff Dyer, and the academic and former tour guide in the Chernobyl Zone Dr Nicholas Rush Cooper from Durham University.

Stalker tells the story of three men - Writer, Professor, and Stalker. We are never quite sure who Stalker is, or what he represents, but it's his job to lead Writer and Professor on a journey into a mysterious region called The Zone. At the heart of The Zone is a room in which all wishes come true.

Based on the novel Roadside Picnic, by Boris and Arkady Strugatsky, Stalker is a kind of Science Fiction film with all the Science Fiction stripped out. Geoff Dyer notes that "Stalker has always invited allegorical readings, and since the film has something of the quality of prophecy, these readings are not confined to events that had occurred by the time the film was made." Is Stalker about the end of Communism? Does it prefigure the Chernobyl disaster? There are many possibilities, but the film remains mysterious.

Producer: Laura Thomas.
