SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b083194v)
The sound of mortality

American pianist Jonathan Biss on late works, Fiona Maddocks on music 'to carry you through', Edinburgh's new concert hall, plus the sound of the Jungle - music recorded in the Calais migrant camp. With Sara Mohr-Pietsch.

Late Style

Beethoven’s piano sonata, Op. 111. Schubert’s Schwanengesang. Brahms’s Six pieces for piano, Op. 119 - all were written as the composers approached the end of their lives, and all have become a source of fascination for the American pianist Jonathan Biss, who performs them as part of his ‘Late Style’ concert series.

“Everybody has their own issues with mortality - it’s a huge, frightening thing,” says Biss. “Art is there, in part, to help us work through the things we find difficult.”

From Mozart’s placid final works to Brahms’s grim reckoning with death, Biss shares his insights into how some of the giant figures of classical music responded to their final days - whether they stepped calmly towards their end, or raged against the dying of the light.

Music to carry you through

Before the final curtain falls, there is a life to be lived – with all its twists and tribulations. And in the iPod era, music – more than ever - the soundtrack to our joys and exasperations. So which pieces should go on your playlist, come what may? Music critic Fiona Maddocks suggests 100 works ‘to carry you through’, in her new book, Music for Life.

Championing lesser known works, and nudging audiences towards less popular composers, Maddocks explains how she compiled a list of works to accompany listeners through love, grief, conflict and consolation – and why she could not imagine a life without music.

Edinburgh’s new concert hall

The Scottish Chamber Orchestra has launched a proposal to build a new mid-sized concert hall in Edinburgh. If the proposal comes to fruition, the new hall will be part of a larger arts centre in the heart of the Scottish capital.

The orchestra’s Chief Executive, Gavin Reid, says the estimated £45m project would allow the SCO to develop new partnerships and reach new audiences.

The Scotsman’s classical music critic, Ken Walton, explains why he believes the new hall is essential to Edinburgh’s cultural future, despite the city already being home to two other concert venues.

The Calais Sessions

Until it was dismantled in October, the Calais camp – known as The Jungle – was home to 10,000 migrants living in desperate conditions. In the summer before it was closed, a small group of musicians set up a makeshift studio in the camp, and recorded some of the music the migrants had brought with them on their journeys.

Led by cellist Vanessa Lucas-Smith, the project resulted in a CD, The Calais Sessions, recorded by visiting instrumentalists alongside musicians living in the camp.

Jungle resident Rekan Ibrahimi describes his life in the camp, while UK-based violinist Bogdan Vacarescu explains the part he played in the Calais Sessions, and the former director of the Pavarotti Music Centre in Mostar, David Wilson, offers his view of how music can transform lives, even in the most appalling circumstances.

SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b083194x)

SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (b0831953)
Wagner's Parsifal

Wagner's Parsifal from the 2016 Bayreuth Festival, conducted by Hartmut Haenchen, with Klaus Florian Vogt as Parsifal, Elena Pankratova as Kundry and Gerd Grochowski as Klingsor.

Presented by Christopher Cook in conversation with Mark Ronan.

Parsifal ..... Klaus Florian Vogt (Tenor)
Amfortas ..... Ryan McKinny (Baritone)
Kundry ..... Elena Pankratova (Mezzo-soprano)
Titurel ..... Karl-Heinz Lehner (Bass)
Gurnemanz ..... Georg Zeppenfeld (Main Artist)
Klingsor ..... Gerd Grochowski (Bass)
First Knight ..... Tansel Akzeybek (Tenor)
Bayreuth Festival Orchestra
Bayreuth Festival Chorus
Hartmut Haenchen (Conductor)

Wagner's final music drama presents a religious community in decay, whose rituals have become empty and meaningless. One of their leaders, Gurnemanz, is searching for "a pure fool made wise through compassion." According to a prophecy, the pure fool will redeem the order and give them a new lease of life. Parsifal is the young thug who bursts in on the scene in the first act, goes through trials of sexual temptation and compassion in the middle act, only to return as the redeemer of the community at the end. Combining the Christian grail legend with elements of Buddhism and the pessimistic philosophy of Schopenhauer, this artwork about religion is for many people a religious experience in itself and it was the only one of Wagner's operas written for performance in the Festspielhaus at Bayreuth.
In this production from the 2016 Bayreuth Festival, described by one critic as “a musical triumph”, Klaus Florian Vogt sings the wild child innocent who stumbles upon the brotherhood of the holy grail, thereby finding wisdom and saving the grail's protectors from a curse put upon them. Elena Pankratova sings Kundry, a mysterious ageless woman, Gerd Grochowski the wicked Klingsor and Georg Zeppenfeld the noble knight Gurnemanz.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b0831955)
Rain

Alice Oswald's poem Rain was commissioned by Radio 3 as part of the 70th anniversary celebrations.

The poem examines the effect this natural atmospheric occurrence has on an urban environment and its population.

A version of Rain has been created in binaural sound. Listen on headphones for the full effect ..

Charlie Phillips

Charlie Phillips is a Jamaican-born photographer whose work has been exhibited across the world, and is part of the permanent collections of The Tate and the V&A. He's best known for his photographs of the area of London where he arrived to live as a boy: Notting Hill. His images are full of the atmosphere of Notting Hill in the late 50s and 60s: slum housing, market traders, churchgoers, children playing on the streets - and they're now valued as a unique record of the experience of that Windrush Generation. Later in the sixties, Charlie Phillips photographed the student protests in Paris, pop festivals and rock stars, while making a living as a paparazzo, chasing Elizabeth Taylor around. Simon Schama has described him as a "Visual Poet - chronicler, champion, witness of a gone world - one of Britain's great photo-journalists."

But Charlie Phillips didn't set out to be a photographer; instead, he wanted to be an opera singer, and during his time as a paparazzo in Milan he achieved his ambition, singing from the stage of La Scala in Verdi's Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves.

In Private Passions Charlie Phillips talks about his passion for opera, and about the racism he encountered when he first arrived in Britain. And although Charlie Phillips has now left West London, he goes back to Notting Hill almost every day - he can't afford to live there any more, but it's where he feels most at home.

Musical Choices include Verdi, Puccini, Dave Brubeck, and a rarely-performed opera by the African-American composer Scott Joplin, about the importance of education in the black community. Phillips also loves hymns and chooses "How Great Thou Art", a rousing evangelical hymn he has planned for his own funeral.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b078n3r2)
What Is It About Mozart?

The Listening Service - an odyssey through the musical universe with Tom Service. Join him on a journey of imagination and insight, exploring how music works.

Today's programme asks "What is it about Mozart" - how have his life and music become the template for what a composer should be - a child prodigy, a virtuoso, a cultural monument, not to mention a confectionery industry... And is there anything that we can say is uniquely "Mozartean" - what makes his music so distinctive and why does it connect so readily with audiences? Explore Mozart's music with Tom and see what conclusions you come to.

Each week, Tom aims to open our ears to different ways of imagining a musical idea, a work, or a musical conundrum, on the premise that "to listen" is a decidedly active verb.

How does music connect with us, make us feel that gamut of sensations from the fiercely passionate to the rationally intellectual, from the expressively poetic to the overwhelmingly visceral? What's happening in the pieces we love that takes us on that emotional rollercoaster? And what's going on in our brains when we hear them?

When we listen - really listen - we're not just attending to the way that songs, symphonies, and string quartets work as collections of notes and melodies. We're also creating meanings and connections that reverberate powerfully with other worlds of ideas, of history and culture, as well as the widest range of musical genres. We're engaging the world with our ears. The Listening Service aims to help make those connections, to listen actively.

Tune in and rethink music, with The Listening Service..

New Generation Thinkers

Part of Radio 3's partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council working with academics to turn their research into radio, two New Generation Thinkers present documentaries on their special area of interest.

1. Hope Mirlees in Paris

The name Hope Mirlees is largely forgotten, but her long poem about Paris is increasingly considered a lost Modernist masterpiece.
Set within a single day in post-World War One Paris, the poem features a collage of overheard snatches of conversation on the newly-opened Metro, children's games, ancient Greek jokes, French double entendres, musical notation, advertising jingles, memorials carved into gravestones, the cries of street vendors and much more.

Sandeep Parmar traces the poem from the house in the Rue de Beaune, which Hope Mirlees shared with the Cambridge classicist Jane Harrison, across the Seine to the Tuileries Gardens, up to seedier corners of Montmartre and back down to the doors of Notre Dame. She speaks with Lauren Elkin, the author of a recent book on women walking in Paris, Flaneuse; with Geoffrey Gilbert from the American University of Paris; and with Professor Mary Beard, who has written a biography of Jane Harrison.

With a new reading of extracts of the poem, Sandeep makes a powerful case for Paris to enter the canon of Modernist literature.
Sandeep Parmar is a Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Liverpool.

Producer: Beaty Rubens

2. The Jews of North Africa during the Second World War. The story of the vibrant Jewish communities in North Africa during the Second World War and their subsequent fates has long been overshadowed by the destruction of European Jewry in Nazi occupied Europe. Here Professor Daniel Lee reveals the rich, multi-layered worlds of faith and culture in Tunisia, Morocco and Libya and the impact of the implementation of Vichy and Italian antisemitic laws that accompanied the Nazi invasion of North Africa in 1942. Such events are entirely unknown to British audiences. The Jews of North Africa are invisible in the Imperial War Museum's permanent exhibition on the Holocaust, which describes only the experiences of "Europe's Jews'

Producer: Mark Burman

The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter
Stanley, an erstwhile pianist lives in a dingy seaside boarding house run by Meg and Petey. He is comfortable there, like a surrogate son. Two sinister strangers turn up - Goldberg and McCann. They claim to know him from the past. They turn Stanley's birthday party into a menacing and terrifying encounter. Franz Kafka meets Donald McGill in Pinter's iconic comedy of menace.

An Irishman and a Jew walk into a seaside boarding house. And what? A parable about power and persecution? Or maybe it's marginalised minorities taking their revenge against seedy Albion? Pinter's slippery and sly black comedy has a huge resonance for today.

Harold Pinter was one of the writers championed by the Third Programme - and in the late 1950s commissioned one of his early plays before he had his first stage hit. Pinter himself acknowledged the role the Third had had in his own cultural education. For the 70th anniversary, Drama on 3 presents a new production of The Birthday Party, now considered a Pinter classic, but which on its first London opening only lasted a week.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Vikki Stone

9am
My favourite... secular choral works. This week a selection of Rob's favourite secular choral works come under the spotlight, from Brahms's Goethe-inspired 'Song of the Fates', which reminds us of the consequences for mankind if the gods are disobeyed, to Bartók's 'Village Scenes', which tell the story of everyday village life - via contributions from Beethoven, Schubert and Percy Grainger.

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

10.00am
Rob's guest this week is the comedian, composer and actress Vikki Stone. Best known for her original comedy songs, Vikki has performed sell-out stand up shows at the Edinburgh Festival and the Soho Theatre, as well as on tour, and has made appearances on BBC One's The John Bishop Show and Radio 4's The Now Show. Earlier this year, Vikki presented the BBC Proms 'Proms Unplucked' podcast, bringing all the backstage news from the festival. Throughout the week pianist and flautist Vikki talks about mixing comedy and music and about learning how to conduct, and she shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including music for the flute by Phillipe Gaubert and Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony, a work she performed in her school orchestra.

10.30am
Power of Three - the next episode in a 70-part daily series of pioneering sounds from the BBC Third Programme and Radio 3 archives presented by David Hendy.

Followed by
Music in Time: Renaissance
Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Renaissance era and an epoch-making collection of printed music - 'Harmonice musices odhecaton' - published in 1501 by a young Italian printer called Ottaviano Petrucci. Petrucci was the first printer to succeed in printing polyphonic music from plates of movable type, rather than from woodblocks. His Odhecaton, as it became known, contained 96 partsongs by some of the leading French and Flemish composers of the day. Its influence was immediate and huge, leading both to an increase in the printing of polyphonic music and the widespread dissemination of Franco-Flemish repertoire.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the Czech conductor Karel Ancerl, one of the most gifted musicians of the last century. The Second World War interrupted Ancerl's early conducting career and, although he survived the war, forming an orchestra whilst imprisoned at Theresienstadt concentration camp, his wife Valy and young son Jan were murdered at Auschwitz. After the war ended, Ancerl returned to conducting with a renewed vigour, raising the Czech Philharmonic to its standing among the greatest orchestras in the world during the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout the week Rob shares a selection of Ancerl's many recordings with the Czech Philharmonic, including a benchmark disc of music from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, Brahms's Double Concerto with violinist Josef Suk and cellist André Navarra, and Janacek's vivid narrative Taras Bulba, as well as gripping accounts of Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Stravinsky's Petrushka.

Gabriel Faure (1845-1924), The Quest for a Libretto

Donald Macleod follows the dramatic thread running through Gabriel Fauré's musical output. Today, inspired by his passion for Wagner, Fauré embarks on his long search for a decent libretto.

"Take lots of handkerchiefs, because you will cry a great deal! Also take a sedative, because you will be exalted to the point of delirium!" - Fauré's advice to anyone intending to take a trip to Bayreuth, the shrine of Wagnerian music-drama. In time, Fauré's love of Wagner abated somewhat, but that did nothing to diminish his desire to write an opera of his own - if only he could find a collaborator.

BBC Singers

Rambert Orchestra
Paul Hoskins, conductor

This epic production is one of the largest in the history of Rambert: a dance about the creation of Earth.

This ambitious interpretation sees over 50 dancers join the 70 musicians for a performance on a truly grand scale, with Mark Baldwin's choreography revelling in the ambition, emotional resonance and subtle humour of a work for all the ages.
The soloists are Sarah Tynan (soprano), James Gilchrist (tenor) and Neil Davies (bass), and the Rambert Orchestra and BBC Singers are conducted by Rambert Music Director Paul Hoskins.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Vikki Stone

9am
My favourite... secular choral works. This week a selection of Rob's favourite secular choral works come under the spotlight, from Brahms's Goethe-inspired 'Song of the Fates', which reminds us of the consequences for mankind if the gods are disobeyed, to Bartók's 'Village Scenes', which tell the story of everyday village life - via contributions from Beethoven, Schubert and Percy Grainger.

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

10.00am
Rob's guest this week is the comedian, composer and actress Vikki Stone. Best known for her original comedy songs, Vikki has performed sell-out stand up shows at the Edinburgh Festival and the Soho Theatre, as well as on tour, and has made appearances on BBC One's The John Bishop Show and Radio 4's The Now Show. Earlier this year, Vikki presented the BBC Proms 'Proms Unplucked' podcast, bringing all the backstage news from the festival. Throughout the week pianist and flautist Vikki talks about mixing comedy and music and about learning how to conduct, and she shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including music for the flute by Phillipe Gaubert and Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony, a work she performed in her school orchestra.

10.30am
Power of Three - the next episode in a 70-part daily series of pioneering sounds from the BBC Third Programme and Radio 3 archives presented by David Hendy.

Followed by
Music in Time: Baroque
Rob places Music in Time. Today the focus is on the Baroque era and Telemann's 'Water Music' - Hamburger Ebb' und Flut - composed to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the Hamburg Admiralty. Handel's Water Music is jaunty and tuneful, but Telemann's brand includes a pinch or two of added harmonic spice, making for a flavour that's uniquely his own.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the Czech conductor Karel Ancerl, one of the most gifted musicians of the last century. The Second World War interrupted Ancerl's early conducting career and, although he survived the war, forming an orchestra whilst imprisoned at Theresienstadt concentration camp, his wife Valy and young son Jan were murdered at Auschwitz. After the war ended, Ancerl returned to conducting with a renewed vigor, raising the Czech Philharmonic to its standing among the greatest orchestras in the world during the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout the week Rob shares a selection of Ancerl's many recordings with the Czech Philharmonic, including a benchmark disc of music from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, Brahms's Double Concerto with violinist Josef Suk and cellist André Navarra, and Janacek's vivid narrative Taras Bulba, as well as gripping accounts of Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Stravinsky's Petrushka.

Gabriel Faure (1845-1924), Perfect Love, Doomed Love

Donald Macleod follows the dramatic thread running through Gabriel Fauré's musical output. Today, a failed collaboration; a professorship; and Fauré makes his mark in London.

A 25,000-franc commission to create a music drama for the inauguration of a wealthy heiress's magnificent new music room, with one of the century's most celebrated poets as your librettist - what could possibly go wrong? In the event, the project barely got off the starting-blocks. Despite the good offices of the Princesse de Polignac - a.k.a. Winnaretta Singer, heiress to the sewing-machine fortune - Fauré couldn't even agree on a subject with the eminent but ailing Paul Verlaine. So no collaboration, but Fauré did go on to set some of Verlaine's poetry to music - his song-cycle La bonne chanson, which charts the course of a perfect, immutable love, being a marvellous example. Love of the doomed, catastrophic kind was the subject-matter of Maurice Maeterlinck's play Pelléas et Mélisande, and it drew from Fauré some of his most touching music, commissioned for a London production in 1898.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0833vzt)
Gabriel Faure (1845-1924), Master of Charms

Donald Macleod follows the dramatic thread running through Gabriel Fauré's musical output. Today, Fauré takes his first stab at opera; starts an affair; and pimps his Requiem.

When Fauré received his first commission for an opera, to be produced in the summer of 1900, it must have felt long overdue - he'd been on the lookout for a suitable libretto for the previous couple of decades. The invitation came not from a conventional opera house but from the town of Béziers, in the Languedoc, famous for bullfights and wine but with no reputation, thus far, for music-drama. A local bigwig had built an enormous Roman-style amphitheatre there, with the intention of staging open-air operas on themes of classical antiquity to audiences of 10,000. Fauré's lyric tragedy Prométhée, about the Titan who brought fire to mankind, was a huge success. Fire was kindled offstage too, when the 55-year-old Fauré met Marguerite Hasselmans, the 24-year-old daughter of one of his Paris Conservatoire colleagues. A relationship ignited which was to stay alight until Fauré's own flame was extinguished a quarter of a century later. While he was working on Prométhée, Fauré also oversaw the rescoring of his famous Requiem for full orchestra - the version in which it's usually heard today, and which, in time, provided the soundtrack to his own funeral.

Thursday - Rob Cowan with Vikki Stone

9am
My favourite... secular choral works. This week a selection of Rob's favourite secular choral works come under the spotlight, from Brahms's Goethe-inspired 'Song of the Fates', which reminds us of the consequences for mankind if the gods are disobeyed, to Bartók's 'Village Scenes', which tell the story of everyday village life - via contributions from Beethoven, Schubert and Percy Grainger.

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

10.00am
Rob's guest this week is the comedian, composer and actress Vikki Stone. Best known for her original comedy songs, Vikki has performed sell-out stand up shows at the Edinburgh Festival and the Soho Theatre, as well as on tour, and has made appearances on BBC One's The John Bishop Show and Radio 4's The Now Show. Earlier this year, Vikki presented the BBC Proms 'Proms Unplucked' podcast, bringing all the backstage news from the festival. Throughout the week pianist and flautist Vikki talks about mixing comedy and music and about learning how to conduct, and she shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including music for the flute by Phillipe Gaubert and Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony, a work she performed in her school orchestra.

10.30am
Power of Three - the next episode in a 70-part daily series of pioneering sounds from the BBC Third Programme and Radio 3 archives presented by David Hendy.

Followed by
Music in Time: Romantic
Rob places Music in Time. Today he travels back to the Romantic era with one of Dvorák's startlingly original 'late' tone poems, The Noonday Witch. When a mother threatens her naughty child, the witch takes action - and the ending is not a happy one. There are vivid prophecies of the 20th-century Czech composer, Leos Janácek in this music.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the Czech conductor Karel Ancerl, one of the most gifted musicians of the last century. The Second World War interrupted Ancerl's early conducting career and, although he survived the war, forming an orchestra whilst imprisoned at Theresienstadt concentration camp, his wife Valy and young son Jan were murdered at Auschwitz. After the war ended, Ancerl returned to conducting with a renewed vigor, raising the Czech Philharmonic to its standing among the greatest orchestras in the world during the 1960s and 1970s. Throughout the week Rob shares a selection of Ancerl's many recordings with the Czech Philharmonic, including a benchmark disc of music from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, Brahms's Double Concerto with violinist Josef Suk and cellist André Navarra, and Janacek's vivid narrative Taras Bulba, as well as gripping accounts of Beethoven's 5th Symphony and Stravinsky's Petrushka.

Gabriel Faure (1845-1924), Marguerite and Penelope

Donald Macleod follows the dramatic thread running through Gabriel Fauré's musical output. Today, after years of waiting, Fauré is granted his heart's desire - a settable libretto.

Fauré's operatic ambitions dated back to his early 30s, but it was not till his mid-60s that opportunity finally knocked and presented him with the young playwright René Fauchois, who would give him the means to turn his dream into reality. Fauchois had just finished a piece called Pénélope about the relentlessly faithful wife of the hero Ulysses, who in the days before SatNav took 10 years to reach home after the Trojan War. Perhaps Fauré saw himself as a kind of musical Ulysses, but for whatever reason, the scenario stimulated his creative juices for the five years it took him to complete the opera - a magnificent and, these days, sadly neglected work. Aside from Penelope, another important woman in Fauré's life at this time was Marguerite Long - the pianist who became his greatest champion. As Director of the Paris Conservatoire, Fauré denied her the position of Professor of Piano (Alfred Cortot got the job), but despite any personal animosity she may have felt, long retained a lifelong loyalty to his music.

Tippett: Symphony No 1

Michael Tippett - a unique voice in 20th-century music - wrote four symphonies, and this evening the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra begins a performance cycle of them all, under the baton of Martyn Brabbins, a leading interpreter of British and 20th-century composers. Tippett's First Symphony launches the cycle with what will become trademarks: uncompromising invention, rhythmic momentum and bold, clear colours. And the elegance of this composition is reflected in the earlier music of Josef Haydn, in his svelte 6th Symphony which opens the concert.

These two works sandwich an altogether different palette of ravishing orchestral colours, although with the same precise ear for crafting musical textures. For Ravel's G major Piano Concerto, with its shimmering surfaces and jazz-inflected rhythms, the orchestra is joined by French virtuoso Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

THU 21:55 Three Score and Ten (b0833y4m)

And New Generation Thinker Preti Taneja has been reading a selection of other newly translated fiction. Plus MP Rachel Reeves has written a history of a campaigning MP who played a crucial role in the de-criminalisation of homosexuality, the legalisation of abortion and the abolition of the death penalty and who was also a driving force in the roll-out of comprehensive education. She talks to presenter Anne McElvoy about why the work of Alice Bacon interests her.

Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Modern era and Steve Reich's Music for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ. Reich once compared listening to his music with standing on a shoreline and watching - or feeling - the waves wash over your bare feet. The texture of this piece is particularly sensual, its tonal palette shifting almost imperceptibly. If you're having a difficult morning, use it as therapy!

Rob's artist of the week is the Czech conductor Karel Ancerl, one of the most gifted musicians of the last century. The Second World War interrupted Ancerl's early conducting career and, although he survived the war, forming an orchestra whilst imprisoned at Theresienstadt concentration camp, his wife Valy and young son Jan were murdered at Auschwitz.

Gabriel Faure (1845-1924), The Horizon of Dreams

Donald Macleod follows the dramatic thread running through Gabriel Fauré's musical output. Today, whimsy, influenza, a close shave with bankruptcy and a late, great chamber work.

After the success of his opera Pénélope, Fauré was keen to write another - but it was not to be. The Great War intervened and for the time being, costly new productions were out of the question. Pénélope would be Fauré's last venture onto the operatic stage, although he did at least live to see it revived, at the Opéra-Comique in Paris - see it rather than hear it, as by now his deafness was total, forcing him to resign his directorship of the Paris Conservatoire. There was one last commission for the stage - a rather curious one from the fairy-tale principality of Monaco, for a lavish 'divertissement' inspired by the Fétes galantes poetry of Verlaine - Masques et bergamasques. It was a great success, underlining Fauré's hard-won status in French artistic life - further underlined when he was made a 'Grand Officier' of the Legion of Honour, a distinction rarely accorded to musicians. On the debit side of the balance, Fauré became seriously ill in the flu pandemic that swept Europe after the war; and he 'caught a cold' financially speaking when the devaluation of the franc shrunk his pension. Only the help of American friends, including the painter John Singer Sargent, saved him from penury. In gratitude, Fauré sent Sargent the manuscript of his 2nd Piano Quintet, a magnificent flowering of the composer's final years.

BBC Philharmonic
Ben Gernon, conductor

Opening a programme packed with passion and melody is Mozart's Symphony No. 25, written by the then 17-year-old in October 1773. This dramatic early symphony is characteristic of the Sturm und Drang style with its wide-leap melodic lines and syncopation.
A former BBC New Generation Artist, Leonard Elschenbroich joins to perform Saint-Saëns's ever-popular First Cello Concerto, with its dramatic opening and delightful, elegant central minuet.
Closing the programme is Act II of Tchaikovsky's wonderful, tune-laden Nutcracker - one of the best-loved ballets of all time.
