Jonathan Swain

Looking forward to tonight's BBC Proms performance of Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream music, Jonathan Swain explores different composers' ideas of midsummer, from Purcell to Tippett. His young Proms artist is pianist Gabriela Montero and he also presents Britten's Les Illuminations sung by Barbara Hannigan prior to her Proms appearance. The week's Americana is Charles Ives's Variations on America.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07pdyrc)
Anna Pavord

Michael Berkeley's guest is Anna Pavord, the distinguished writer about gardens and landscape. Her best-known book is The Tulip, a biography of the bulb that created a mania in the 17th century, but she's written extensively about plants, and places, and spent years as gardening columnist of the Independent. Her latest book "Landskipping: painters, ploughmen and places", is an exploration of how, through the ages, we have responded to the land.

The programme is recorded on location in the landscape of West Dorset where Anna Pavord has lived, and gardened, for much of her life. She talks about what this landscape means to her, and why it is that we respond to certain kinds of natural beauty. She discusses her scholarly research into landscape mania in the 18th century, and tells moving personal stories too, such as the time she refused morphine after an operation for cancer, discovering that a mask of sweet peas was more effective - and much more pleasurable.

Walking round her garden, Anna Pavord reflects on the therapeutic value - and marvelous madness - of a life spent gardening.

Music choices include the Welsh Hymn Cwm Rhondda; the poet R.S.Thomas reading his own work; Bach's Wedding Cantata; two pieces by Schubert; Elgar's Cello Concerto - and a 1929 recording by Cleo Gibson: "I've got Ford engine movements in my hips".

2016, Prom 47: Ulster Orchestra and Rafael Payare

Live at BBC Proms: Prom 47: The Ulster Orchestra and Rafael Payare play Haydn and Tchaikovsky, and a new piece by Belfast-based composer Piers Hellawell.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Presented by Andrew McGregor.

Piers Hellawell: Wild Flow (BBC commission: world premiere)
Haydn: Cello Concerto No 1 in C major

4.40 Proms Interval: The Dreamwalker
30 years after he was held hostage in Beirut, Brian Keenan reveals how 17th-century harper Turlough Carolan offered him salvation during the darkest days of his incarceration.

5.00 Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 5 in E minor

Narek Hakhnazaryan, cello
Ulster Orchestra
Rafael Payare, conductor

In the late 1880s Tchaikovsky felt momentarily freed from the catastrophes that were haunting his private life and carving a tragic path through his career. His Fifth Symphony, which was taking shape on his desk, appears to ease the composer's own suffering. Light floods its textures; hopeful melodies invade its dark corners.
Venezuelan conductor Rafael Payare makes his Proms debut with his Ulster Orchestra to perform this most radiant of Tchaikovsky's symphonies, bringing with him Haydn's delightfully perky C major Cello Concerto and a brand-new work by Piers Hellawell.

PROMS INTERVAL: The Dreamwalker
When Brian Keenan was freed from the isolated, blacked-out cell where he had been held hostage for four-and-a-half years in Beirut - he was determined to pay a debt of honour to a mysterious musician who had befriended him in his solitude.

Turlough Carolan - a 17th-century harper and pivotal figure in Irish musical history - had come to offer Keenan salvation during the bleakest days of his incarceration.

Like Keenan in his cell, Carolan lived in darkness. Blinded by smallpox as a child, he had come to show him how he might roam free in the vivid world of his imagination. Keenan began to piece together what little fragments of Carolan's story he knew - how Carolan had travelled through Ireland as an itinerant harper, just as Christianity took hold. Keenan's dream-like visions of Carolan began to have a healing effect.

Then came Brian Keenan's release in August 1990. But Carolan wasn't finished with him. Unlikely coincidences, signs... and then a letter from an Innuit woman, insisting that Carolan was a 'dreamwalker' who had visited Keenan for a reason.

30 years on from his release, Brian Keenan now shares that reason with us.

Monkey Business

It begins in mischief and ends in confusion. Monkeys are the lords of misrule. They're as entertaining as they are mischievous. In their needs and affections they can also seem almost human. Are we monkeys or are they men? In Monkey Business the actors Rosalie Craig and Philip Franks will be leaping about between the probable and the improbable. Searching for airborne fun rather than earthbound enlightenment. They'll be swinging from the cosmology of 16th-century China to the simian aspirations of The Jungle Book and will conjure mayhem from Satie, Beethoven, Britten and Ligeti to hasten them on the way. As Kipling put it - "here we go in a flung festoon, half-way up to the jealous moon."

Narcissus, the Thespian hunter who fell in love with his own image, inspired Matthias Pintscher to compose his own reflection on 'the interaction of different groups and their mirror images', a work for cello and orchestra. Pintscher conducts Reflections on Narcissus here before a semi-staged performance of Mendelssohn's incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Mendelssohn's delicate, mercurial and strident music is interspersed with excerpts from Shakespeare's text to form a centrepiece of this season's celebrations of Shakespeare's 400th anniversary.

PROMS EXTRA: Shakespeare - Sheep and Shepherds
References to sheep, lambs, fleeces, wool and shepherds are to be found in many of Shakespeare's plays. From Corin in 'As You Like It' who describes himself as a 'natural philosopher' to Perdita's saviour in 'The Winter's Tale', they are key characters in the plots and reflect the importance of the wool trade in Elizabethan England. James Rebanks, the Herdwick Shepherd, talks about his life as a shepherd in Cumbria and how much - if at all - the shepherd's life has changed over the past 400 years. He will be joined on stage by Shakespeare expert Dr Emma Smith from the University of Oxford who presented Radio 3's Sunday documentary looking at the buyers of Shakespeare's First Folio. The discussion is hosted by Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough from Durham University who was selected as a New Generation Thinker in 2013 in the scheme run by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academic broadcasters of the future.
Producer: Zahid Warley.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b017lz81)
The Piano Lesson

In August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play set in Pittsburgh in 1936, an ancient upright piano carved with African faces dominates the parlour of Doaker Charles. Boy Willie and his partner Lymon have come up from the south to sell watermelons. Boy Willie has just got out of prison and he wants to buy the land his ancestors once worked as slaves but his sister is not about to sell the piano.

Creative consultant, Ricardo Khan
Pianist, Ernie Scott

"The glow accompanying August Wilson's place in contemporary American theatre is fixed." Toni Morrison.

August Wilson (1945-2005) is America's foremost black playwright. 'The Piano Lesson' is the fourth of his cycle of ten plays about the African American experience in the twentieth century. It opened at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 1987 and the 1990 Broadway production won a Pulitzer Prize, a Drama Desk Award and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. The play was inspired by Romare Bearden's painting of the same name. August Wilson saw its scene of a teacher and student as an allegory for how African Americans must learn to negotiate their history.

This radio production was recorded at Tony Award winning Crossroads Theatre, New Brunswick, New Jersey, with the support of August Wilson's widow, and an outstanding cast which includes actors like Stephen Henderson and Anthony Chisholm who worked extensively with August Wilson. Anthony and Stephen were both in the Olivier award winning production of 'Jitney' which took London by storm ten years ago and Stephen and Chris Chalk were both in the Broadway Tony award winning production of August Wilson's 'Fences' starring Denzel Washington in 2010.

First broadcast in November 2011.

Monday - Sarah Walker with Sally Phillips

9am
My favourite... English Idylls
This week Sarah chooses a selection of pieces that are perfect for summer - English Idylls. Usually inspired by landscape or folk traditions, they tend to be a wistful and melodic reflection of pastoral or rural life. Sarah has lined up a selection of some of the best, by composers including Arnold Bax, George Butterworth, Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger and Frederic Delius.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Sarah's guest is the actress Sally Phillips. Famous for her roles in Miranda, the Bridget Jones films and Clare in the Community and Talking to Strangers on Radio 4, Sally will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music including works which recall her upbringing in the Middle East and pieces which she discovered from playing the flute, including works by Saint-Saëns, Smetana, Rachmaninov and Cecile Chaminade. Sally is Sarah's guest every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance
Sarah places Music in Time. Today we scroll back to the Renaissance and the time of Elizabeth I, when puritanism was a major religious force. Thomas Tallis reflected this in music such as the collection of nine Tunes for Archbishop Parker's Psalter. These hymns, written in a pared-down style were considered particularly appropriate for religious worship.

10.45am
Sarah's Proms artist of the day is the French piano virtuoso Louis Lortie, who is performing music by Liszt, Poulenc and Fauré in today's Chamber Prom from the Cadogan Hall. This morning, Sarah features Lortie in the music of a fellow Frenchman, with whom he has become closely identified, Frederic Chopin.

Live from Cadogan Hall, London.

Fauré: Barcarolle No 5 in F sharp minor
Fauré: Barcarolle No 7 in D minor
Poulenc: Napoli
Liszt: Venezia e Napoli

Louis Lortie (piano)

Eloquent French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie performs an intriguing programme that moves from the clear spring-water of Fauré's Barcarolles to depictions of Italian cities from Poulenc and Liszt.

Poulenc's pianistic vision of Naples manages to be light-hearted and dazzling at the same time. Liszt was intrigued and inspired by the city's furious traditional dance, the tarantella. He used that and the gondola songs of Venice in the broad emotional canvas that is his Venezia e Napoli.

Afternoon on 3 - with Penny Gore

Another chance to hear the BBC Philharmonic at the Proms with Juanjo Mena in Elgar and Dutilleux, and the London premiere of 'Israfel' by the orchestra's Composer in Association, Mark Simpson.

Presented from the Royal Albert Hall by Tom Redmond.

2.10pm:
Dutilleux: 'Tout un monde lointain...'

2.40pm:
Elgar: Symphony No.1 in A flat, Op.55

Johannes Moser (cello)
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

In his First Symphony, unveiled in Manchester in 1911, Edward Elgar saw beyond the recession in which Britain was languishing to express a 'massive hope for the future'. The symphony's noble main tune appears fragile at first, but when it returns at the end, it's carried home by an ecstatic orchestra filled with a spirit of uplifting optimism. The BBC Philharmonic and its Chief Conductor also present the London premiere of a work by its Composer in Association, Mark Simpson, and the marriage of modernity and beauty that is Dutilleux's cello concerto 'Tout un monde lointain...'.

Followed by a selection of recordings from this year's Proms Artists.

MON 18:30 Composer of the Week (b07pfc4k)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), A Family Holiday

Donald Macleod places the teenage Mendelssohn's exceptional talent in music alongside his abilities as a keen amateur landscape artist, including extracts from his youthful Octet and Concerto in D minor for strings.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Already making a name as a composer, in 1822 Mendelssohn produced some 40 odd sketches on a three month holiday. Being left behind when the family convoy of carriages set off from Potsdam doesn't appear to have dampened the thirteen year old's spirit. Arriving in Switzerland, Mendelssohn was inspired, as Turner had been before him by the sight of the Rigi Kulm.

TUE 09:00 Essential Classics (b07pfftb)
Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Sally Phillips

9am
My favourite... English Idylls
This week Sarah chooses a selection of pieces that are perfect for summer - English Idylls. Usually inspired by landscape or folk traditions, they tend to be a wistful and melodic reflection of pastoral or rural life. Sarah has lined up a selection of some of the best, by composers including Arnold Bax, George Butterworth, Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger and Frederic Delius.

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

10am
Sarah's guest is the actress Sally Phillips. Famous for her roles in Miranda, the Bridget Jones films and Clare in the Community and Talking to Strangers on Radio 4, Sally will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music including works which recall her upbringing in the Middle East and pieces which she discovered from playing the flute, including works by Saint-Saëns, Smetana, Rachmaninov and Cecile Chaminade. Sally is Sarah's guest every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Sarah places Music in Time focusing on the Baroque era and looks at a technique that Henry Purcell was particularly keen on - the false relation. Few pieces display this as well as his anthem Hear My Prayer, which contains a great tangle of chromatic and dissonant harmonies.

10.45am
Sarah's Proms artist of the day is another piano colossus, Stephen Hough. Tonight Stephen will be tackling a particularly well-loved work, Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and Sarah has cast her net a little wider and chosen a neglected masterpiece which offers an equal opportunity for technical brilliance, Franck's Prelude, Aria and Finale.

Sakari Oramo, conductor

Two centuries on, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony has lost none of its shattering power. A tirade against destiny, it remains one of the most compelling yet perfect musical arguments ever created. Sakari Oramo conducts it here, after the pulsating drive of HK Gruber's Busking, performed by Håkan Hardenberger, the soloist for whom it was created. But, to start, music of pictorial delicacy: Henri Dutilleux's sonic reproduction of the cosmic, whirling effect of Van Gogh's painting The Starry Night.

Followed by a selection of recordings from this year's Proms Artists.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), 1829 - Rain and Mists

Donald Macleod explores the artistic results of Mendelssohn's visit to Scotland, including the Hebrides Overture and a sketch of the Falls at Dunkeld.
Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Mendelssohn's 1829 tour of Scotland is recorded in a series of memorable sketches. The weather was particularly bad, so much so that he developed a different pencil technique in his attempts to capture the cloudy skies and swirling mists. But his visit to Fingal's cave is preserved only in music. The crossing was so rough, and he was so sea-sick, he was unable to produce a sketch.

He recast much of the opera's most impactful music into his Third Symphony. Alexander Vedernikov conducts it here after Stephen Hough plays Rachmaninov's devilish and ever-entertaining 'Paganini' Variations, and the final instalment of fellow-Russian Tchaikovsky's three Shakepeare overtures.

TUE 22:00 Sunday Feature (b06r4617)
Above Sixty, Below Zero

Nature dominates man in the far north. The landscape, its wildlife and natural resources can provide feast or famine, wealth or poverty. Writer, journalist and Nordic obsessive, Lesley Riddoch follows the 60th parallel north to find out how northern man and woman's intimate relationship with their landscape is changing.

For local people a warming climate and the expansion of mineral extraction, shipping and oil and gas exploration radically twist the once familiar challenges of Arctic life. As one Inuit elder explains, "it's like an old friend behaving strangely".

Lesley visits the Swedish city that's about to fall into the world's largest underground iron ore mine. In Iceland she meets farmers, entomologists and fishermen dealing with the most rapid climate warming on the planet. She hears how the Inuit of Baffin Island welcome new jobs but worry about the appearance of robins in their gardens and Atlantic salmon in their fishing nets.

As the nature of the north becomes just a little more southern how will the people maintain an identity forged in a harsh climate?

Producer: Alasdair Cross

Sarah's guest is the actress Sally Phillips. Famous for her roles in Miranda, the Bridget Jones films and Clare in the Community and Talking to Strangers on Radio 4, Sally will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music including works which recall her upbringing in the Middle East and pieces which she discovered from playing the flute, including works by Saint-Saëns, Smetana, Rachmaninov and Cecile Chaminade. Sally is Sarah's guest every day at 10am.

Music in Time: Modern
In Music in Time today Sarah turns to the Modern era. Today she places Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time under the microscope and discovers the technique of 'additive rhythms', the result of which is a kind of organized anarchy!

10.45am
Sarah's Proms artist of the day is Marin Alsop, a conductor very familiar to audiences in the Royal Albert Hall, having recently conducted two of the Last Night of the Proms. Marin is known for her mastery of American repertoire and Sarah has chosen a hyper-romantic piece by Samuel Barber - Knoxville: Summer of 1915.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), The Land of Art

The sights and sounds of Italy stimulate Mendelssohn's creative mind. Including part of the Italian Symphony and Surrexit pastor bonus.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Today, we join Mendelssohn in 1830-31 on the Italian leg of his Grand Tour. His itinerary included plenty of time for a romantic encounter, and soaking up art treasures and sketching, so much so that he seems to have done rather more drawing and painting than composing. Presented by Donald Macleod.

True Norse

They are the happiest, most successful societies in the world. Their schools the envy of every politician; their elegant flat-pack furniture invading every British home. For some in Britain, they are our nearest neighbours. Yet the culture of the Nordic countries is curiously opaque to many Brits, papered over by a generalised sense of Ikea furniture and snowy forests.

So what's really going on up there? Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough takes us behind the elegant, minimal façade, on a journey to the heart of Norse culture.

In Copenhagen she visits the Little Mermaid - a modest tourist attraction - and discovers that behind it lies guilt about the Danes' war-mongering past. In these highly secular countries she finds the Lutheran church living on in Scandinavian design. And with Lars Mytting - wood fanatic - she takes tentative steps into the Taiga, the vast forest which starts in Norway and encircles much of the world; a perfect place to explore the Nordic ideas of nature and solitude.

In Oslo, Asle Toje from the the Norwegian Nobel Institute explains the power struggles which have riven the Nordic countries for centuries. These live on today: the smell of whale-blubber drifts over the Copenhagen docks as Eleanor discusses Greenlandic independence from Denmark with one of its greatest proponents - former Greenland PM Aleqa Hammond. Immigration, the big news story in Sweden and Denmark, is discussed with provocative journalist Mikael Jalving from Jyllands-Posten - the paper which printed the Prophet Muhammad cartoons.

And she talks to the man who, five years ago, was asked to re-brand Finland. Apparently being 'a bit like Sweden' is not enough.

First broadcast December 2015 as part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season.

Presenter: Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough
Producer: Melvin Rickarby.

Marin Alsop, conductor

Following the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra's evening Prom, its musicians and Principal Conductor Marin Alsop are joined by members of the São Paulo Jazz Symphony Orchestra for a landmark celebration of Brazilian popular-music from the past 100 years.

Few countries can boast such an ingrained and individual popular music tradition as Brazil, and this feel-good Late Night Prom will take you from the African influenced rhythms and Chopinesque chromaticism of Brazilian street music to the outlandish constructions of the so-called São Paulo avant-garde - all from the best Brazilian players in the business.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Sally Phillips

9am
My favourite... English Idylls
This week Sarah chooses a selection of pieces that are perfect for summer - English Idylls. Usually inspired by landscape or folk traditions, they tend to be a wistful and melodic reflection of pastoral or rural life. Sarah has lined up a selection of some of the best, by composers including Arnold Bax, George Butterworth, Gustav Holst, Percy Grainger and Frederic Delius.

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

10am
Sarah's guest is the actress Sally Phillips. Famous for her roles in Miranda, the Bridget Jones films and Clare in the Community and Talking to Strangers on Radio 4, Sally will be sharing a selection of her favourite classical music including works which recall her upbringing in the Middle East and pieces which she discovered from playing the flute, including works by Saint-Saëns, Smetana, Rachmaninov and Cecile Chaminade. Sally is Sarah's guest every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time and today discovers how sets of variations were composed in the Classical era. Often the basis for the variations were well-known songs, nursery rhymes, or in the case of Beethoven's Variations on "Kind, willst du ruhig schlafen", from a popular opera. Beethoven takes what is quite a simple tune, and produces something altogether more complex.

10.45am
Sarah's Proms artist of the day is the Danish cellist Truls Mørk. Tonight Truls will be tackling the fiendishly difficult First Cello Concerto by Shostakovich, and this morning Sarah features Truls in music by another Soviet composer, Nikolai Miaskovsky, his First Cello Sonata, a relaxed and reflective piece written in a much more Romantic style.

2016 Queen's Hall Series, Florian Boesch and Malcolm Martineau

Grammy nominated Austrian baritone Florian Boesch and pianist Malcolm Martineau perform Schubert's song cycle of unrequited love Die schöne Müllerin, live from the Edinburgh International Festival. Schubert's first song cycle is based on the poems by Wilhelm Müller and tells the story of a young man who falls in love with a miller's daughter and his personal tragedy as she falls in love with someone else. The story is told from the young's man's perspective and the final lullaby from the brook which led him to her implies that he drowns himself in despair. Florian Boesch however has a more optimistic reading of the ending to this most romantic of stories.

Dvorak: Symphony No.7 in D minor

Tai Murray (violin)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Sondergard (conductor)

When the London Philharmonic Society asked Dvorak for a new symphony in 1884, the composer knew he had to deliver something special. In the resulting Seventh, the doubts and frustrations Dvorak experienced as a composer are defeated by music that triumphs compellingly over its own nervous energy, bursting into radiant brightness in the final bars. Tonight, Dvorak's most fascinating symphony is heard after Malcolm Hayes's new concerto, a work inspired by the mood and atmosphere of the Outer Hebrides and played by former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Tai Murray. The solo line soars in the outer sections as a life-form in flight in this concerto with an open-air spirit. Bartok's colourful Dance Suite, featuring Hungarian and Arabic folk melodies, opens the concert.

Followed by a selection of recordings from this year's Proms Artists.

'A composer's music should express his love affairs, his religion, the books that have influenced him, the pictures he loves.' So said Rachmaninov, whose Third Symphony does just that through irrepressible yearning and longing. It forms the culmination of this Prom in which the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and its Russian Chief Conductor perform Shostakovich's disquieting First Cello Concerto.
A brand-new work by Liverpool-born composer Emily Howard opens the concert.

PROMS INTERVAL: Sir Henry Wood and Rachmaninov's Third Symphony.
Conductor Benjamin Pope visits the Royal Academy of Music to see the Proms founder Sir Henry Wood's own copy of the score of Sergei Rachmaninov's Third Symphony.

Sarah places Music in Time, heading off to the Romantic era to explore a technique that became very popular in the late 19th century: 'monothematicism', which is the practice of using one tune as the basis for a whole movement, or piece. Sarah chooses a movement from Alexander Zemlinsky's Symphony No.1 that works melodic wonders with just one theme.

10.45am
Sarah's Proms artist of the day is a choir that tonight will be singing Mozart's Requiem, Collegium Vocale Gent, led by their long-standing conductor Philippe Herreweghe. Sarah has chosen a piece by a composer to whom their style of performance is particularly well suited, Henry Purcell.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Walton: Partita

2.15pm
Huw Watkins: Cello Concerto (BBC commission: world premiere)

2.40pm
Webern: Passacaglia

2.55pm
Brahms: Symphony No.4 in E minor

Paul Watkins (cello)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Sondergard (Principal Conductor)

Thomas Sondergard conducts his BBC National Orchestra of Wales in a Prom exploring the idea of the orchestral 'passacaglia' and some of the most delicious and subtle sonorities ever conjured. Brahms's fourth and final symphony feels like the composer's supreme achievement for orchestra; its finale, a radiant passacaglia, is the summation of the composer's quest to wed discipline and emotion. After Walton's boisterous Partita comes the world premiere of the latest Proms cello concerto, a piece written by Huw Watkins and played by his brother, Paul. It's a work that stems from the brothers' long experience of performing chamber music together. "I'm biased of course," says Huw, "but there's no cellist I know who makes a more expressive and beautiful sound."

Followed by a selection of recordings from this year's Proms Artists.

FRI 18:30 Composer of the Week (b07pj85g)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), High Society

Donald Macleod assesses Mendelssohn's abilities as a portraitist, including excerpts from the London version of the Scottish Symphony and the Opus 44 Piano Trio.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Given the number of Mendelssohn's sketches, drawings and paintings, it's perhaps surprising that there aren't more portraits. In fact Mendelssohn, brilliant as he was, had an area which he perceived as being weak. He felt he wasn't good at drawing people. You can judge for yourself as Mendelssohn's sketch of a boy is available on the Radio 3 website along with some of the others featured in this week's programmes.

Iván Fischer (conductor)

The story of Mozart's last months is almost as remarkable as the string of masterpieces he produced during them. Who was the cloaked figure rumoured to have commissioned Mozart to write the Requiem? We'll never know, but the deathly tread, furious fight and radiant hope of the music remain unparalleled.

Iván Fischer brings his equally exceptional Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Proms, joined by one of Europe's leading choirs for the Requiem, alongside the autumnal shades of Mozart's late Clarinet Concerto.
