SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b083qmvm)

Beats behind bars
What difference can the arts make in prisons? And what can a composer learn from convicts?

Mark-Anthony Turnage made headlines in 2012 when he premiered a piece composed in collaboration with the inmates of a Nottinghamshire prison.

As the Irene Trust’s Music in Prisons project, which commissioned the work, celebrates 21 years of making music with prisoners, Turnage recalls the fear he felt the first time he went into a prison.

One of the inmates he worked with, Gary, describes how music projects have helped build his confidence, and the Irene Trust’s founder, Sara Lee, reveals her dream of building an arts prison.

Reluctant tenor?
Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja enjoys a stellar career as a soloist at the world’s top opera houses, from Covent Garden, where he recently appeared in Norma, to the US, Europe and the Far East. But to keep his voice in shape, whisky and cigars are among the indulgences he has to sacrifice to his art.

Calleja outlines how he persuaded the Maltese Prime Minister to provide access to online music education tools for the entire population of his home country.

He laments what he describes as the dumbing down of culture and arts across the world, and makes the case for directing greater financial resources to music and the arts.

Bird Calls
From the earliest cave paintings art has imitated nature, and music is no exception. But nature also imitates art ,and with human intervention, can even be made to mimic itself.

At an exhibition charting the changing relationship between humans and the animal kingdom, Wellcome Collection curator Honor Beddard reveals how humans have tried to imitate birdsong and train birds to sing human melodies – or even coach one bird species to sing the songs of another.
She also explains how the sale of a popular elephant, Jumbo, to an American buyer prompted Victorian songwriters in England to immortalise the animal.

Radical conductor
The German conductor Ingo Metzmacher reveals how he believes the classical music industry has lost its radical sting – and how he fears becoming too established.

“There’s this huge danger you just do your job and do what people expect you to do”, says Metzmacher, as he expresses his admiration for composers, such as Beethoven and Luigi Nono, who late in life risked all they had achieved to make a new start.
“The biggest danger is that you are afraid to lose your reputation – that’s no fun, I think.”

Britten's Billy Budd

Britten's psychological maritime drama Billy Budd is set on board HMS Indomitable at the close of the 18th century, a time of riotous mutinies amidst the Napoleonic Wars. Adapted from the novella by Hermann Melville, his final work, Britten collaborated with librettists EM Forster and Eric Crozier in this ambiguous tale of good versus evil. In this new co-production from Opera North and Royal Dutch Opera recorded at Leeds Grand Theatre, baritone Roderick Williams makes his debut in the role of Billy Budd, the charismatic and handsome able seaman undone by his one fatal flaw. Bass Alastair Miles plays his nemesis, the depraved Master at Arms Claggart, and tenor Alan Oke is the equally conflicted Captain Vere, who looks back on his life's defining events from the safety of old age. Presented by Donald Macleod.

SAT 21:00 Between the Ears (b083qmvy)
Tower of Babel

A newly commissioned work for radio from globally renowned theatre director and artist Robert Wilson which has been co-produced by the BBC and a group of German radio stations. In this multilingual sound-collage about the doomed proverbial tower of Babel, half a dozen languages are interwoven and juxtaposed. Wilson, originally an architect, has for decades worked worldwide with international ensembles, in various cultures and languages, and at constantly changing locations, all merging into a single whole: the theatre. In a compositional approach which is structural rather than conventionally linear, he uses texts from an ancient description of the city of Babylon and passages from the great works of theatre history: Aeschylus, Euripides, Shakespeare, Racine and Ionesco. Featuring actors and musicians including Fiona Shaw, Alan Cumming, Daniel Hope and architect Daniel Libeskind.

Tower of Babel recently won the 'Deutsches Horspielpreis der ARD', the highest award for a radio play in Germany. It is a co-production between the BBC and German radio stations HR, NDR, RBB and SWR.

Violin, Daniel Hope

MON 09:00 Essential Classics (b083qr7t)
Monday - Sarah Walker with Lynne Truss

9am
My favourite... Rameau dance music. Sarah puts on her dancing shoes as she shares a selection of her favourite dances from French baroque composer Rameau's most celebrated operas and ballets, including Hippolyte et Aricie, Les Indes Galantes, Dardanus and Zais.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Sarah's guest is the writer and broadcaster Lynne Truss. Best known as the author of the hugely successful punctuation bible Eats, Shoots and Leaves, Lynne started her career as a literary editor, then critic and columnist. She has written extensively for radio, with her work including dramas, comedy series, adaptations and short series, and is a familiar voice on Radio 4, often presenting and contributing to radio discussions. Lynne has also written novels including Going Loco, Tennyson's Gift, With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed and Cat Out of Hell.
Lynne talks about her new novel, The Lunar Cats, and shares her favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including works by Beethoven, Donizetti and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

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

Music in Time: Romantic
Sarah places Music in Time as she explores Debussy's take on one of the most popular chamber music genres, the string quartet, where the composer's use of modes and innovative textures reflect his interest in non-Western music.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is the pianist Moura Lympany. After auditioning for the conductor Basil Cameron, Lympany made her concert debut with him at Harrogate in 1929, aged just twelve, playing Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto. Several years later, she came second to Emil Gilels in the Ysaÿe Piano Competition in Brussels, and by the Second World War she had become one of the UK's most popular pianists. Her repertoire focuses mainly on music of the Romantic period and the 20th century, and throughout the week we'll hear her in recordings of piano concertos by Liszt (No. 2), Rachmaninov (No. 1) and Mendelssohn (No. 1), as well as Chopin's 24 Preludes and Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01rw0t9)
Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-), The Impact of War!

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass. Gordon Jacob composed over 400 works, and was so successful in his lifetime, he was asked to write music for the coronation of the Queen. Jacob spent much of his time tutoring at the Royal College of Music, where he taught Joseph Horovitz. Horovitz likewise went on to teach at the Royal College of Music, and has composed such notable works as his Clarinet Sonatina, the theme music to Rumpole of the Bailey and Lillie, plus a work which won him an Ivor Novello Award, his cantata Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo.

Gordon Jacob came from a military background, and retained wonderful memories of his childhood in London with barrel organs, dancing bears, and German bands. Writing music for wind and brass bands became a profitable and enjoyable enterprise for Jacob, including his "An Original Suite for Military Band". A military life was not for Jacob however, though he did spend time serving on the frontline in WWI. It was during the Great War that he lost one of his closest brothers, Anstey, and he dedicated his First Symphony to him.

Joseph Horovitz, who joins Donald Macleod to talk about his music, and that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob, was also a victim of war, having to flee Austria at the beginning of WWII. Horovitz's formative experiences influenced his biographical Fifth String Quartet. Arriving to safety in Britain, Horovitz had to learn a new culture and language. This adopting of other languages is also present in his music, such as exploring the musical language of jazz in the Jazz Concerto for Piano, Strings and Percussion.

Cavalli's La Calisto

Live from Wigmore Hall, London: La Nuova Musica perform Cavalli's La Calisto.

Cavalli: La Calisto (part 1)

8.10pm Interval: Pied Piper
A radio programme that's aimed at children and teenagers, but draws in an audience of all ages. That's exactly what Pied Piper was - a twenty-minute programme that ran on BBC Radio 3 from 1971 until the untimely death of its presenter, early music specialist David Munrow in May 1976. It was broadcast at tea time and was initially billed as 'tales and music for younger listeners', yet many now cite it as the programme that gave them a way into classical music. As part of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the Third Programme, BBC Radio 3 has dug out some of the programmes from the archive to give us a chance to listen again to how Munrow enthused his audiences with his passion for music of all types.

During the intervals of the concerts this week, we'll be hearing a selection of programmes from the five-year-long series. Munrow explored a wide range of music, and these five programmes can only begin to give a taste of the topics he covered.

In this edition of Pied Piper from 13th September 1971, David Munrow discusses the music of Handel, sings 'jolly good, jolly good' along to a Bach Brandenburg concerto and gives a brief history of electronic and pipe organs.

La Nuova Musica
David Bates director

Francesco Cavalli's La Calisto, first performed in Venice in 1651, blends comedy and tragedy with music of sensuous beauty and irresistible charm. The opera's libretto is based on the ancient Greek myth of the nymph Callisto as related by Ovid in his Metamorphoses.

Its modern revival at the 1970 Glyndebourne Festival created a wave of interest in Baroque opera that continues to grow today, driven by the energy and artistic vision of groups such as La Nuova Musica and its director David Bates, who made his critically acclaimed US debut in 2014 conducting La Calisto with Cincinnati Opera.

10am
Sarah's guest is the writer and broadcaster Lynne Truss. Best known as the author of the hugely successful punctuation bible Eats, Shoots and Leaves, Lynne started her career as a literary editor, then critic and columnist. She has written extensively for radio, with her work including dramas, comedy series, adaptations and short series, and is a familiar voice on Radio 4, often presenting and contributing to radio discussions. Lynne has also written novels including Going Loco; Tennyson's Gift; With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed and Cat Out of Hell. Lynne talks about her new novel, The Lunar Cats, and shares her favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including works by Beethoven, Donizetti and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

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

Music in Time: Modern
Sarah places Music in Time, looking at the folk influences in one of Zoltan Kodaly's most famous works: his Hary Janos Suite. Together with Bartok, Kodaly was the most important figure in establishing Hungarian nationalism twentieth-century music. This was partly thanks to new recording technology, which allowed him to go out into the field and record folk tunes.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is the pianist Moura Lympany. After auditioning for the conductor Basil Cameron, Lympany made her concert debut with him at Harrogate in 1929, aged just twelve, playing Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto. Several years later, she came second to Emil Gilels in the Ysaÿe Piano Competition in Brussels, and by the Second World War she had become one of the UK's most popular pianists. Her repertoire focuses mainly on music of the Romantic period and the 20th century, and throughout the week we'll hear her in recordings of piano concertos by Liszt (No. 2), Rachmaninov (No. 1) and Mendelssohn (No. 1), as well as Chopin's 24 Preludes and Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.

Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-), The Pursuit of Careers Not in Music

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

Both Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz had false starts. Horovitz originally set out to be an artist, whereas Jacob intended to be a journalist, though both came round to the idea of composing in the end. Jacob studied at the Royal College of Music, under Stanford and Howells, and was soon composing works such as his "William Byrd Suite". But it wasn't long after his years as a student, that he was making his Proms first appearance, conducting a performance of his own First Viola Concerto.

It was the influence of his teacher Gordon Jacob which made Joseph Horovitz want to compose. Jacob's prolific output as a composer of concertos influenced Horovitz's own work in that area, such as his Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra. And again, like Jacob, Horovitz soon found himself writing music for the stage, such as his popular score for "Alice in Wonderland".

Lawrence Power and Friends, Episode 1

Fiona Talkington presents a new series from LSO St Luke's in London featuring Lawrence Power and Friends. Today Lawrence Power plays both viola and violin (though not at the same time) in two very different trios by Brahms.

Brahms: Trio in A minor for viola, cello and piano, Op 114
Lawrence Power (viola),
Paul Watkins (cello),

One of the world's most charismatic viola soloists, Lawrence Power has been praised for his "technical brilliance and emotional depth" and described as "an artist of exceptional expressive power." Here he takes charge of the latest of Radio 3's curated "... and Friends" series at LSO St Luke's in London, inviting a distinguished group of kindred spirits to join him in a celebration of the viola as chamber-music star, revealing it in many settings and contexts, guises and characters. The Guardian has said of Power that "his tone is breathtakingly beautiful, rich and poetic, but such is his insight that the music, rather than his technique, is what commands attention.".

The Weird, Science and Art at Fact, Japanese Film Your Name

Weird fiction presents the universe as an irrational place, totally indifferent to human concerns. Is 'the weird' a more general approach that can bextended beyond fiction to encompass the other arts, or even politics and science? Rana Mitter discusses the idea of the weird with literary scholar Nick Freeman of the University of Loughborough, cultural theorist Caroline Edwards of Birkbeck, University of London, and astronomer Marek Kukula of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich.
Continuing to explore the faultline between art and science, Rana meets artist Helen Pynor and gallery director Mike Stubbs to discuss science and art on show at Liverpool's FACT.
And, we discuss the new Japanese animated film Your Name with Japanologist Irena Hayter of the Univeristy of Leeds, and Justin Johnson, curator of animation and films for younger people at the British Film Institute.
No Such Thing As Gravity is on show at FACT, Liverpool until February 5th 2017.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b072j0qg)
Inspiring Women in Music, Inspiring Women in Music: Nicola LeFanu

The composer Nicola LeFanu tells us about her life in music as part of this series celebrating inspiring women.
When she was growing up it didn't occur to her that composition was an unusual thing for a woman to do; it seemed completely natural, surrounded as she was by women who wrote music: her mother, the composer Elizabeth Maconchy, and her friends including the Welsh composer Grace Williams and the Irish composer Ina Boyle. It was only when Nicola went on to study music herself that she realised how few women had been included in the books which told the history of Western Classical music. In this edition of The Essay, Nicola shares her story of what, and who, has inspired her own career spanning over half a century and how things have changed for women in music during her lifetime.

Music in Time: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time. While many piano concertos of the Classical period demonstrate pianistic virtuosity, Mozart brought the flamboyance of the concerto into several of his piano sonatas. Sarah examines the Sonata in B flat, K. 333, which includes a real "cadenza" in the finale, giving the impression of orchestral textures conversing with a soloist.

Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-), Music for the Radio and the Stage

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

Gordon Jacob was something of a celebrity in his local community. He was now being asked to compose a number of choral and vocal works, including his arrangement of Psalm 23, "Brother James's Air". Jacob seemed to work best when he was composing for a specific person or instrument in mind, which can be heard in his Clarinet Quintet, dedicated to Frederick Thurston and the Griller Quartet. But this was now the time of the Second World War, and he was required to boost morale with arrangements for the BBC's ITMA programme, arranging works such as the overture to Rossini's "Barber of Seville".

When it was first suggested to Joseph Horovitz that he went to study music at the Royal College of Music under Gordon Jacob, all he knew about Jacob was his music for ITMA; although Jacob soon came to loathe his association with the programme. After his studies at the RCM, Horovitz soon found himself taken up with the stage, including a post as Music Director at the Bristol Old Vic, conductor of the orchestra for the Ballet Russes, and conducting ballet for the Festival of Britain. Opera has also been a particular passion for Horovitz, and today we'll hear his operatic Scena: "Lady Macbeth".

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Lynne Truss

9am
My favourite... Rameau dance music. Sarah puts on her dancing shoes as she shares a selection of her favourite dances from French baroque composer Rameau's most celebrated operas and ballets, including Hippolyte et Aricie, Les Indes Galantes, Dardanus and Zais.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: listen to the clues and identify a mystery musical object.

10am
Sarah's guest is the writer and broadcaster Lynne Truss. Best known as the author of the hugely successful punctuation bible Eats, Shoots and Leaves, Lynne started her career as a literary editor, then critic and columnist. She has written extensively for radio, with her work including dramas, comedy series, adaptations and short series, and is a familiar voice on Radio 4, often presenting and contributing to radio discussions. Lynne has also written novels including Going Loco; Tennyson's Gift; With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed and Cat Out of Hell. Lynne talks about her new novel, The Lunar Cats, and shares her favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including works by Beethoven, Donizetti and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

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

Music in Time: Renaissance
Sarah places Music in Time as she investigates the 'frottola', an Italian comic or amorous song, popular in the 15th and 16th centuries and an important precursor to the madrigal. Sarah hunts out several frottolas from one of the best-known exponents of the form, the Italian Renaissance composer Bartolomeo Tromboncino.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is the pianist Moura Lympany. After auditioning for the conductor Basil Cameron, Lympany made her concert debut with him at Harrogate in 1929, aged just twelve, playing Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto. Several years later, she came second to Emil Gilels in the Ysaÿe Piano Competition in Brussels, and by the Second World War she had become one of the UK's most popular pianists. Her repertoire focuses mainly on music of the Romantic period and the 20th century, and throughout the week we'll hear her in recordings of piano concertos by Liszt (No. 2), Rachmaninov (No. 1) and Mendelssohn (No. 1), as well as Chopin's 24 Preludes and Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01rw1my)
Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-), Composing Music for Film

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

The 1940s and 1950s were a very busy period of composing for Gordon Jacob, writing many works for commission such as his "Trombone Concerto" for the International Trombone Association, or his "Sextet" dedicated to the memory of horn player Aubrey Brain. Yet Jacob was also active in other areas, such as composing for film. In 1947 he composed music for the film which gave Dirk Bogarde his first starring role as the charming cad, "Ester Waters".

Joseph Horovitz has also composed much music for film and television, including the series Lillie, Rumpole of the Bailey, and Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime. For many years Horovitz has also taught on the Composition for Screen course at the Royal College of Music. Yet, like his one-time tutor Jacob, Horovitz has remained with his feet firmly in a number of camps, composing music also for the radio, and the concert hall such as his "Variations on a Theme of Paganini", and his world famous "Clarinet Sonatina".

Thursday Opera Matinee, Saint-Saens - Proserpine

Penny Gore presents Saint-Saëns's opera Proserpine, recorded in Munich in September. Featuring the soprano Véronique Gens in the title role.

Saint-Saëns's opera depicts the fate of Proserpine the Renaissance courtesan, rather than the mythological character of the same name. In this tale, the composer relishes the opportunity to experiment with dissonance and bold harmonies to portray the age-old battle between good and evil, lost innocence and temptation, thwarted love, passion and violence.

2:00pm
Saint-Saëns: Proserpine, lyric drama in four acts

Proserpine...Véronique Gens (soprano)
Angiola...Marie-Adeline Henry (soprano)

Elgar: In the South (Alassio)
Delius: Concerto for Violin and Cello

8.15: Interval: Pied Piper
During the intervals of the concerts this week, we'll be hearing a selection of programmes from the five year long series. Munrow explored a wide range of music, and these five programmes can only begin to give a taste of the topics he covered. This edition of the Pied Piper programme was first heard at 5.25pm on Monday 1st March 1976. The Radio Times described it like this: "For two centuries the string quartet has been a favourite form of music making. David Munrow traces its early history from the time when the 'demure' viol was replaced by the 'vulgar' violin."

8.35: Walton: Belshazzar's Feast

Tasmin Little, violin
Paul Watkins, cello
Neal Davies, bass
BBC National Chorus of Wales
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Martyn Brabbins, conductor

With the hauntingly dramatic bass solo telling of Belshazzar's hallucinations and ensuing death, to epic choruses depicting the fall of Babylon, this choral masterpiece is a work of epic proportions. From the striking opening brass fanfare, the delicate and intimate semi-choruses, to massed choral forces, Belshazzar's Feast is a high energy emotional rollercoaster.

THU 21:55 Three Score and Ten (b083qxxd)
Liz Lochhead

Ian McMillan with a poem specially commissioned for an interval programme from Liz Lochhead, former Makar - the Scottish National Poet. Recorded on location in Glasgow in 2006.

Eliot, Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, WH Auden, Seamus Heaney and Carol Ann Duffy. Plus ten brand new poems by contemporary poets commissioned specially for the series and broadcast on The Verb.

Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-), An Interest in Brass

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

In the last decade or so of his life, Gordon Jacob was affected by failing eyesight and hearing. He once jokingly remarked that "it doesn't interfere with the enjoyment or production of music. After all, Beethoven was a great deal deafer than me, and wrote nearly as good music!" Jacob kept on working hard, and in the space of five years, composed 55 new works, such as his "Sonatina for Treble Recorder and Harpsichord", and his "Mini Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra".

During this final few decades in Gordon Jacob's life, composer Joseph Horovitz kept in contact. It was a period for Horovitz which saw the creation of one of his most enduring works, which also won him an Ivor Novello Award, his cantata "Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo". But like his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob, Horovitz has always relished writing music for a specific instrument or soloist in mind, such as his "Oboe Concerto", or his brass band 'test' piece "Ballet for Band".

Composer-conductor Matthias Pintscher rejoins the orchestra of which he is Artist-in-Association to explore Russian classics: Rachmaninov's dark-hued symphonic poem The Isle of the Dead; and Tchaikovsky's romantically melodious Symphony No 5. And the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are joined by French virtuoso Cédric Tiberghien to explore the lighter and more classical melodies of Mozart's youthful Piano Concerto No 12.

Our latest 'Three Score and Ten' Commission celebrating Radio 3's 70th anniversary comes from Zaffar Kunial, who was the 2014 poet-in-residence at the Wordsworth Trust. Zaffar's work is published by Faber.

Jenny Ogilvie is directing a revival of James Bridie's play 'Dr Angelus at the Finsbourgh Theatre, alongside performance from some of the cast she discusses the experience of reviving Bridie's forgotten language.
