SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08dnhd2)
Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla at CBSO

Tom Service asks conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla about her plans for the City of Birmingham Orchestra, looks at the slave trade with composer Thierry Pécou, and explores the rarely-performed opera-oratorio, Le vin herbé.

Tom visits Symphony Hall to talk to the exciting young conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla about her ambitions for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and music education in Birmingham. He also discusses the challenges faced by the CBSO with Chief Executive Stephen Maddock following recent funding cuts from Birmingham City Council, plus an update from Julian Lloyd-Webber, Principal of the Birmingham Conservatoire, on the progress of their cutting-edge new building which is due to open its doors to students in September this year.

Tom also talks to the French composer, Thierry Pécou, about Outre-mémoire, written for his friend, the pianist Alexandre Tharaud, which delves into the heavy history of the Carribbean island of Martinique and its slave trade, from where Pécou's own family is descended.

Plus, as Welsh National Opera prepare to stage a performance of the rarely-performed opera-oratorio, Le vin herbé, Tom finds out why this work was pivotal in the compositional career of its creator, the Swiss composer Frank Martin, and puts forward a case for why we should hear more from this unique voice of 20th Century music. He talks to Nigel Simeone, who is an expert champion of Frank Martin's music, plus the director and conductor of Welsh National Opera's production of Le vin herbé, Polly Graham and James Southall.

William Alwyn

Matthew Sweet with Philip Lane on the film music career of William Alwyn, composer of over 80 scores including "The Magic Box", "The History of Mr Polly", "The Swiss Family Robinson" and "The Crimson Pirate".

Volume 4 of the CD series "The Film Music of William Alwyn" has just been released with the BBC Philharmonic conducted by Rumon Gamba.

The programme includes highlights from across William Alwyn's career including music from "The History of Mr Polly"; "The Master of Ballantrae"; "Manchester - A City Speaks"; "Desert Victory"; "The Rocking Horse Winner"; "Svengali"; "The Card"; "The Swiss Family Robinson" and "They Flew Alone".

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08dnjb0)
Peter Robinson

Crime-writer Peter Robinson tops the best-seller lists year after year, across the world; in fact his detective, DI Banks, is probably even better known than he is. DI Banks is a straight-talking Yorkshire-man with dodgy dress sense and a frustrated love life, and he's been solving murders in Yorkshire for some twenty years now. There are now twenty-three Banks novels, and several series on television with Stephen Tompkinson in the title role. So DI Banks is hugely popular, and central to his character is that he constantly listens to music - in the car, at home, in pubs. There's a memorable line where Robinson says of his detective - "He did his best thinking when he was listening to music and drinking wine." This, Robinson reveals, is autobiographical.

In Private Passions, Peter Robinson talks to Michael Berkeley about how music inspires his best thinking and writing, and why he's on a mission to get all his readers listening to the music he loves. He even creates online playlists of the music his detective listens to - including some of the music he chooses in Private Passions. Choices include Poulenc's Sextet for Piano and Wind, Beethoven's String Quartet in C sharp minor, Takemitsu, Miles Davis, and one of Schubert's last piano sonatas. Perhaps it's no surprise that he's drawn to last works - as a crime writer, his books begin with murder. Robinson confesses though that he regrets the increasing violence of the genre, and thinks the TV adaptations of his work go too far. And he reveals why Yorkshire is always the best place to hide a body.

The Power of Love Songs

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.

With Valentines Day just around the corner, Tom explores the enduring power of love songs. He talks to Ted Gioia, author of Love Songs: The Hidden History who explains that the very first traces of writing in human history are hymns to love. The tenor Ian Bostridge reflects on the inward-looking art of Lieder and what they tell us about true love in the Romantic era. And Tom turns to the operatic stage for some of the ultimate expressions of love as a subversive and even revolutionary force, showing how Verdi and Strauss used thwarted lovers in their operas to shine a light on the hypocrisy and gender politics of their times.

The Experimenters

British playwright, actor Kwame Kwei-Armah now artistic director of Center Stage, the state theatre of Maryland, in Baltimore, uncovers the artistic laboratory that was Black Mountain College in North Carolina (1933 - 1957). In this faculty-owned college that built itself, students and teachers included John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, Merce Cunningham, Josef Albers, Willem de Kooning and Buckminster Fuller. It was unconventional, democratic, collaborative and un-bureaucratic. Students attended meetings that had to reach a consensus and students and teachers worked on the property and farmed. Always short of funds, this was a dynamic community that believed creating art was central to the development of a good citizen.

Kwame discovered Black Mountain because he admires the work of the black artist Jacob Lawrence, who taught at Black Mountain in the summer of 1947. Lawrence said the experience left him with more intellectual insight into the making of art. As Kwame guides a group of production interns at his Baltimore theatre, he shares his discoveries about this remote experimental college in the Blue Ridge Mountains. He's especially fascinated by the risks they took to welcome black students and faculty, as early as 1944, in the segregated South.

The interns consider what learning at Black Mountain would have been like. There was poverty and isolation but no grades, you didn't have to graduate, you had constant access to professors and the opportunity to perform almost every night. Together with some Baltimore actors, they re-imagine the first ever Happening that John Cage devised, one hot June night in the dining room in 1952.

Helped by curators, archivists and alumni, Kwame ponders the legacy of this extraordinary, unique educational establishment and artists colony.

Jenny Lomas

by David Eldridge.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08dxjxz)
Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), Ravel the Enigma

Donald Macleod explores the enigmatic personality and richly vibrant soundworld of Maurice Ravel, composer of Boléro.

Ravel is a musical genius ... with an image problem. Thanks to the efforts of Torvill and Dean (not to mention Bo Derek and Dudley Moore), his is a place in popular culture unmatched by any composer of the 20th century. And all for a piece, Boléro, that he joked to friends "had no music in it" ... Compared to his fellow musical "impressionist" Debussy, Ravel's music is sometimes unfairly characterised as rather shallow - all brilliant artifice and sumptuous detail, but no heart. That reputation's not helped by the man himself. Famously private, Ravel projected the image of a rarefied dandy, whilst keeping his own private emotional world a tightly-kept secret. This week, Donald Macleod seeks to break through the shell of this musical enigma to discover the vast depths beneath.

We begin the week with Ravel's happy childhood and prodigious musical development in fin-de-siècle Paris of the late 1800s.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Angela Rippon

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is the newsreader, broadcaster and writer Angela Rippon. Angela started her career in print journalism before moving into television at BBC South West. She went on to present the Nine O'Clock News, making her the first female journalist to regularly present national news. After her remarkable appearance dancing with Morecambe and Wise on one of their Christmas specials, Angela went on to host Come Dancing, and since has presented shows such as Antiques Roadshow, Top Gear, and more recently Rip-Off Britain and How to Stay Young. Aside from broadcasting Angela has written a series of children's books and was one-time chair of English National Ballet.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Robs heads back to the Baroque period to explore a genre-busting concerto by Vivaldi - with eleven soloists!

11am
Artists of the Week: Borodin Quartet
Rob's Artists of the Week are without question one of the great chamber ensembles of the last century: the Borodin Quartet. Founded in 1945 and still going strong today, the Borodins are stylistically distinctive, yet their performances are always at the service of the music. Across the week Rob features them in string quartets by Beethoven, Borodin and Shostakovich, whose work they have always championed; in Brahms's Second Piano Quartet (with Sviatoslav Richter); and in Schnittke's Piano Quintet (with Ludmilla Berlinsky).

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08dxk30)
Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), L'affaire Ravel

Donald Macleod explores the notorious "Ravel Affair" of 1905, when the composer was passed over for French music's biggest prize. Plus: Ravel's relationship with Debussy.

Ravel is a musical genius ... with an image problem. Thanks to the efforts of Torvill and Dean (not to mention Bo Derek and Dudley Moore), his is a place in popular culture unmatched by any composer of the 20th century. And all for a piece, Boléro, that he joked to friends "had no music in it" ... Compared to his fellow musical "impressionist" Debussy, Ravel's music is sometimes unfairly characterised as rather shallow - all brilliant artifice and sumptuous detail, but no heart. That reputation's not helped by the man himself. Famously private, Ravel projected the image of a rarefied dandy, whilst keeping his own private emotional world a tightly-kept secret. This week, Donald Macleod seeks to break through the shell of this musical enigma to discover the vast depths beneath.

In the early years of the first decade of the 20th century, Ravel cultivated a reputation as French music's most talented - and fashionably-dressed - young composer, as he divided his time between the Paris Conservatoire and the boutiques of the Grands Boulevards. Yet his failure to win the Prix de Rome - the most prestigious prize in French music - scandalised France's musical establishment. Donald Macleod takes up the story, and explores the composer's relationship with his closest musical rival, Claude Debussy.

TUE 14:00 Afternoon on 3 (b08dnqt7)
BBC Symphony Orchestra, Korngold, Weill, Adams

Penny Gore continues this week of recent performances by the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Erich Korngold and Kurt Weill fled from Nazi Germany within a year of each other in the early 1930s. Eventually, both re-established themselves in the USA - on opposite coasts - Korngold in Hollywood writing for the cinema, Weill in New York writing for Broadway.

Korngold's only symphony was written using fragments of the film score to The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, a Warner Brothers hit in 1939 starring Errol Flynn, Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland. Kurt Weill's Seven Deadly Sins was completed before he made it to the USA, in Paris in 1933, but it is set in the USA. In it, a pair of twins - both called Anna - experience the Seven Deadly Sins as they travel through seven different cities in the USA over a period of seven years. In Weill and Berthold Brecht's hands the satire is what is a sin and what is not ... Storm Large sings the roles of both Annas.

In between, the vocal ensemble "Hudson Shad" - who sing the part of Anna's family in Weill's Seven Deadly Sins - present a collection of satirical songs from stage and cinema.

And as it is John Adams's birthday tomorrow, Penny introduces a performance of his "Gnarly Buttons" with Michael Collins (who gave the premiere) directing the BBC Symphony Orchestra - three movements that include a hoedown with prominent parts for banjo and a cow.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra - Haydn, Ravel, Tippett

Recorded 9th February and presented by Andrew McGregor from City Halls, Glasgow.

Haydn: Symphony No 8 'Le Soir'
Ravel: Concerto for Piano (Left Hand)

8.10pm Interval

8.30pm
Tippett: Symphony No 2

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Martyn Brabbins, conductor

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra with conductor Martyn Brabbins continue to explore the symphonic output of 20th-century English composer Michael Tippett.

Tippett's Second Symphony - completed in 1957- expands on an increasingly bold and idiosyncratic palette: from its urgent, angular opening full of rhythmic drive, through a glistening slow movement, to an ambiguous, austere fanfare. It is a work which looks forward even as it peers backwards to classical models from the past.

Tonight it is preceded by Ravel's ravishing 1929 Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, music of delicate clockwork, its exquisite colours brought to life by the hand of French virtuoso Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

And the concert opens with music by Haydn, his 'Le Soir' Symphony, No 8, whose clean lines and structure pre-echo those of Michael Tippett's much later work.

Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), Calm Before the Storm

Donald Macleod explores Ravel's happy years prior to the First World War. His idyll was to be shattered by the death of his father and the outbreak of war.

Ravel is a musical genius ... with an image problem. Thanks to the efforts of Torvill and Dean (not to mention Bo Derek and Dudley Moore), his is a place in popular culture unmatched by any composer of the 20th century. And all for a piece, Boléro, that he joked to friends "had no music in it" ... Compared to his fellow musical "impressionist" Debussy, Ravel's music is sometimes unfairly characterised as rather shallow - all brilliant artifice and sumptuous detail, but no heart. That reputation's not helped by the man himself. Famously private, Ravel projected the image of a rarefied dandy, whilst keeping his own private emotional world a tightly-kept secret. This week, Donald Macleod seeks to break through the shell of this musical enigma to discover the vast depths beneath.

As the fallout from the scandalous "Ravel Affair" faded, Ravel settled into a comfortable life dividing his time between professional life in Paris and summers in his Basque homeland, where he dreamed of composing a Basque musical fantasy - sadly never realised. Donald Macleod explores Ravel's often neglected support for musical modernism, showcasing his daring Three Poems of Stéphane Mallarmé - a work with the double misfortune of being composed in the same year as Stravinsky's iconic "Rite of Spring", and a work with the exact same title by his rival Claude Debussy.

The BBC Philharmonic - Live from MediaCityUK, Salford, presented by Tom Redmond

George Antheil - radical American composer and a performing pianist, once took to the stage armed with a revolver concealed under his concert dress for a concert tour of 1930s Germany - as a "degenerate" artist he wanted to defend himself if any Nazis stormed the stage.

Hindemith also felt the disapproval of the Nazi party. He wrote his symphony based on themes from his opera "Mathis der Maler" (Mathis the Painter) for Furtwängler and the Berlin Philharmonic to perform in 1934, but both Furtwängler and Hindemith faced official censure as Hindemith was already considered a composer of "degenerate" music - and the message of the opera was that the artist must follow his own conscience and the the instruction of his political masters.

By the 1960s, Shostakovich was past the worst of what the Soviet State could throw at him, so it seems a pity that his Second Cello Concerto should have caused him so many problems musically. He struggled with the first movement, which had been originally destined as a new symphony, and threw out a completed final movement and started again from scratch.

Thursday - Rob Cowan with Angela Rippon

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is the newsreader, broadcaster and writer Angela Rippon. Angela started her career in print journalism before moving into television at BBC South West. She went on to present the Nine O'Clock News, making her the first female journalist to regularly present national news. After her remarkable appearance dancing with Morecambe and Wise on one of their Christmas specials, Angela went on to host Come Dancing, and since has presented shows such as Antiques Roadshow, Top Gear, and more recently Rip-Off Britain and How to Stay Young. Aside from broadcasting Angela has written a series of children's books and was one-time chair of English National Ballet.

10.30am
Music in Time: Modern
Rob focuses on the modern era and a chamber-music masterpiece Schoenberg wrote during his convalescence from a near-fatal heart attack.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of an orchestral piece by Stravinsky.

11am
Artists of the Week: Borodin Quartet
Rob's Artists of the Week are without question one of the great chamber ensembles of the last century: the Borodin Quartet. Founded in 1945 and still going strong today, the Borodins are stylistically distinctive, yet their performances are always at the service of the music. Across the week Rob features them in string quartets by Beethoven, Borodin and Shostakovich, whose work they have always championed; in Brahms's Second Piano Quartet (with Sviatoslav Richter); and in Schnittke's Piano Quintet (with Ludmilla Berlinsky).

Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), Ravel at War

Donald Macleod explores how Ravel - just over five feet tall, and long deemed unfit for the army - came to bravely serve his nation during the First World War.

Ravel is a musical genius ... with an image problem. Thanks to the efforts of Torvill and Dean (not to mention Bo Derek and Dudley Moore), his is a place in popular culture unmatched by any composer of the 20th century. And all for a piece, Boléro, that he joked to friends "had no music in it" ... Compared to his fellow musical "impressionist" Debussy, Ravel's music is sometimes unfairly characterised as rather shallow - all brilliant artifice and sumptuous detail, but no heart. That reputation's not helped by the man himself. Famously private, Ravel projected the image of a rarefied dandy, whilst keeping his own private emotional world a tightly-kept secret. This week, Donald Macleod seeks to break through the shell of this musical enigma to discover the vast depths beneath.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Ravel was nearly 40 and physically tiny compared to his peers. Yet he was determined to serve his country. Repeatedly requesting enlistment after being rejected by the authorities, the composer was finally called up in 1915, and his bravery and doggedness in the face of horror was praised by his officers. Yet on returning, he famously rejected the Légion d'Honneur, France's highest accolade, claiming he didn't want the praise and limelight the honour would bestow.

Thursday Opera Matinee, Massenet - Don Quichotte

Opera matinee with Penny Gore.

Cervantes' heroic knight errant is just the starting point for Massenet's five-act comic opera "Don Quichotte". Premiered in 1910, it was Massenet's final operatic triumph, and his own situation echoed the fictional relationship between the aged Don Quichotte and the young beautiful Dulcinée. Massenet was infatuated with a singer half his age who sang the role of Dulcinée at the first performance, and Massenet can see the ridiculousness of the situation, but writes tenderly for the pair.

Of course there is the Don's faithful servant Sancho Panza and windmills too, and bandits and a stolen jewel that Don Quichotte vows to return to Dulcinée - he thinks in return for becoming his wife. Towards the end of the opera Dulcinée quietly and sensitively thanks Don Quichotte for returning her jewel, but gives him a reality check - their destinies are completely different: she is in the present and looking to the future, he is a relic of the past - they can never be married.

Feodor Chaliapin was the original Don Quichotte, and Ferrucio Furlanetto takes the central role in this performance given on Christmas Eve last year at Chicago Lyric Opera and Sir Andrew Davis conducts.

Nick Luscombe with a Basil Kirchin tribute

Nick Luscombe pays tribute to avant-garde musical genius, Basil Kirchin by showcasing some of his words and selected gems from his catalogue.

Born in 1927, Basil Kirchin was an elusive and enigmatic pioneer of British music. Originally a drummer inspired by jazz and mambo, his extraordinary musical journey included swing, rock'n'roll, film score, and pop songwriting, before he retreated to Hull, where he created experimental sonic landscapes that still challenge convention, until his death in 2005.

Mind on the Run: The Basil Kirchin Story, a celebration of the forgotten genius, takes place at Hull City Hall from 17 until 19 February as part of the UK City of Culture 2017 celebrations. On tonight's Late Junction Nick digs out some of his most amazing and overlooked music, and plays clips from a previously unheard interview, recorded by Jonny Trunk a few months before Kirchin's passing.

Plus, hear music by fans of Basil, from Broadcast to Brian Eno, who described his hero as "a founding father of ambient".

Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), Genius Cut Tragically Short

Donald Macleod explores Ravel's masterpieces of the 1920s and early 30s - a prolific period cut cruelly short by degenerative brain disease.

Ravel is a musical genius ... with an image problem. Thanks to the efforts of Torvill and Dean (not to mention Bo Derek and Dudley Moore), his is a place in popular culture unmatched by any composer of the 20th century. And all for a piece, Boléro, that he joked to friends "had no music in it" ... Compared to his fellow musical "impressionist" Debussy, Ravel's music is sometimes unfairly characterised as rather shallow - all brilliant artifice and sumptuous detail, but no heart. That reputation's not helped by the man himself. Famously private, Ravel projected the image of a rarefied dandy, whilst keeping his own private emotional world a tightly-kept secret. This week, Donald Macleod seeks to break through the shell of this musical enigma to discover the vast depths beneath.

In the 1920s Ravel seemed to be at the very height of his powers, cementing his place as France's leading composer after the deaths of Debussy and Fauré. Yet his place at the top of the musical firmament was to be cut tragically short, as a neurological disorder slowly and cruelly took away his mental and physical capabilities - leaving Ravel with music in his head that he couldn't physically write. Donald Macleod explores Ravel's last works, ending with a radical new performance of Boléro by the Belgian orchestra Anima Eterna.

Richard Strauss: Four Last Songs

Jonas Kaufmann (tenor)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Jochen Rieder (conductor)

Strauss's Four Last Songs are the ultimate romantic orchestral songs - and the final, gorgeous sunset of German Romanticism. The last concert of the great German tenor Jonas Kaufmann's Barbican Residency finds him breaking new ground in this most rapturous of musical farewells. True, they're more usually sung by a soprano, but the prospect of hearing Kaufmann's transcendent tone and unparalleled sensitivity in Strauss's final masterpiece is mouth-watering. There'll be other Strauss songs too. And regular collaborator Jochen Rieder conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in Elgar's exuberant concert overture In the South - subtitled Alassio after the town on the Italian Riviera where Elgar and his wife were staying in 1904 - and which Elgar claimed he 'wove in the valley of Andorra during a long and lovely day al fresco', and Korngold's Schauspiel Overture, the extraordinary creation of a very gifted fourteen-year old.
