Shirley Hughes

On her 90th birthday, Shirley Hughes, the creator of many of our best-loved and most enduring children's books, talks to Michael Berkeley about her musical passions.

In a career spanning nearly seventy years Shirley has written as many books and has illustrated nearly two hundred. She was the first winner of the Book Trust Lifetime Achievement Award, has twice won the Kate Greenaway Medal, and was recently awarded a CBE for services to literature.

Her picture books have an enduring appeal with their sympathetic but unsentimental depiction of the small dramas and joys of family life. One of her most loved, Dogger, the tale of a beloved toy dog lost and found, has its 40th anniversary this year. The winner of numerous awards, she recently received a CBE for services to literature.

Shirley chooses music by Scriabin, Mozart, Beethoven and the Beatles - who remind her of her roots in Liverpool and share her love of storytelling.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Martin Handley

Mozart: Symphony No 38 in D major 'Prague', K 504
Mozart: Violin Concerto No 3 in G major, K 216

4.30pm INTERVAL: How to Start a World-Class Orchestra
No resident concert hall, no resident conductor, no problem. Take 45 young musicians, fresh out of the European Community Youth Orchestra, together with the renowned conductor Claudio Abbado and his assistant James Judd. Add a horn-playing businessman and his wife on honeymoon in Salzburg. Throw in a bucketful of naive enthusiasm and dogged persistence, and in 1981 the Chamber Orchestra of Europe is born. But how easy was it to bring the right selection of players from across Europe together, with only limited funds, and without mobile phones, budget airlines or the internet? Sarah Walker finds out how founders of the COE overcame the obstacles, and grew up with the orchestra that for some has become the habit of a lifetime.

With Douglas Boyd, James Judd, June Megennis, Peter Readman, Victoria Readman, Enno Senft and Elizabeth Wexler.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3

4.55pm Part 2
Schumann: Symphony No.2 in C major

Isabelle Faust (violin)
Chamber Orchestra of Europe
conductor Bernard Haitink

The two symphonies that frame this Prom each offer a defiant, optimistic challenge to the status quo. Mozart's pioneering 'Prague' Symphony rewrites the rule book for the genre, while in Schumann's Second Symphony the composer overcomes the demons of his own mental health to produce a work of invigorating, captivating extremes.

Conductor Bernard Haitink - a Proms regular for over half a century - returns with frequent collaborators, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. They are joined by award-winning German violinist Isabelle Faust, the soloist in Mozart's graceful Violin Concerto No. 3.

SUN 19:15 Between the Ears (b07gn38t)
A Beastly Midsummer Night

The sun is setting on the summer solstice, the twilight slipping towards Midsummer's Night - an enchanted evening heavy with possibility, where real life blends into fantasy.

A family of four set off on an adventure to a Norfolk wood. They search for kindling and logs to build a bonfire to mark this special time of year. On their journey they are lured into the hidden magic and mischief of the natural world: the life and death struggle of owls and mice, the glistering swirl of the evening chorus, the flutter of insect wings, all of which power the story of this special night narrated by naturalist and writer Bridget Nicholls.

In the dying light of the day, as the family toast marshmallows over the embers of the fire, the mosquitoes and moths swirl above them, giddy in the sugary air.

As darkness descends and the family head back to the house, we realise the adventures of the natural world are not over yet.

Produced by Sarah Peters, music and sound design by Iain Chambers, mixed by Peregrine Andrews. An Open Audio production for BBC Radio 3.

Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin bring the generous scope of their interpretation of Elgar's Second Symphony to their second concert of the season, celebrating a work whose modernity and astonishing textural effects startle even now.
Dedicated to the memory of Peter Maxwell Davies, who died last year, Sir Harrison Birtwistle's Deep Time continues his career-long fascination with time and its manipulation in a sweeping new orchestral work that swaps the relentless tick-tock of the everyday for something more powerful and more alien.

Tower of Babel

An original 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.

Maxwell was a practising architect for many years and in 1989 became the youngest-ever President of RIBA, the Royal Institute of British Architects. He's become one of the foremost broadcasters on architecture, presenting series on BBC Two, Channel Four and BBC Radio London. At one point Maxwell considered becoming a musician and has written three musicals and a Requiem Mass. In the last few years Maxwell has been ordained and is currently a curate at a church in Essex. As well discussing his work, his music and his life, throughout the week Maxwell will be sharing some of his favourite classical music by composers including Brahms, Ravel and Elgar.

10.30
Music on Location: Prague
Sarah spends the week exploring the classical music connections found in the city of Prague, beginning with Bedřich Smetana's tone-poem Vyšehrad - a portrait of the city's castle, the seat of the earliest Czech kings which towers over the River Vltava.

11am
Sarah's Proms Artist of the Week is the conductor, Nicholas McGegan. McGegan has been hailed as "one of the finest baroque conductors of his generation" (The Independent) and has been director of the San Francisco-based Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale for over 30 years. McGegan has also devoted much of his time to opera; he was Artistic Director of the Göttingen Handel Festival for 20 years and Principal Guest Conductor at Scottish Opera in the 1990s. As a guest conductor he's worked with orchestras around the world including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony, Halle, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra. During the week Sarah will be featuring McGegan's recordings of Haydn's Symphony No.57, Mozart's Piano Concerto in F major, K459 with Melvyn Tan, and excerpts from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas and Alessandro Scarlatti's Il Vespero di Santa Cecilia.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08xz32t)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), My Desert

Donald Macleod introduces a week focusing of Haydn's often overlooked - yet utterly beguiling - piano sonatas, which span virtually his entire composing life.

Joseph Haydn's rightly lionised by music history as the "Father of the Symphony" - a man who took a nascent form and turned it into the very apex of musical composition. Repeating the trick with another benchmark musical genre seems almost greedy of him - and yet, with more than eighty masterful examples, Haydn's dubbed the "Father of the String Quartet" too. Which makes the neglect of one area of his musical output rather puzzling. Haydn wrote more than sixty keyboard sonatas, spanning a remarkable half-century in music history. This period saw harpsichords and clavichords replaced by the forerunners of the modern piano, and - more than that - keyboard music go from the light dance suites to the sonata: a form that would shortly be taken by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert into the very highest pinnacle of musical art. None of this could have happened without Haydn. And yet, his array of sonatas lag behind the fame and appreciation of his symphonies and quartets. This week, Donald Macleod puts that right: with no fewer than fourteen examples, in the hands of fourteen virtuoso pianists from the last century, with a supporting cast of musical excerpts from opera, chamber and vocal works.

We begin in the late 1760s, with Haydn engaged at the court of Prince Eszterhazy, deep in the Hungarian countryside - a place the composer gloomily dubbed "my desert". Benchmark sonatas recordings by John McCabe and Carole Cerasi are joined by a thrilling - and rather unusual - virtuoso reading by the Bulgarian-born pianist Alexis Weissenberg.

The acclaimed conductor and musician Vladimir Ashkenazy travels to the California home of acclaimed photographer Ansel Adams to reveal how classical music inspired and informed his friend's art.

Meeting the photographer's friends, family and former colleagues, Ashkenazy hears how Adams effectively "composed" his images, drawing on his musical background when developing his prints.

One of the most highly regarded photographers of the 20th Century, Adams's iconic black-and-white images of the American West still fetch $60 000 at auction. But his first love was piano, not the camera.

A wayward child, Adams struggled to concentrate and was expelled from several schools but became captivated by his mother's piano, teaching himself to sight-read music at the age of twelve. Classical music became Adams's passion and, until his late twenties, he was an aspiring concert pianist deeply committed to the study of great composers including Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Scriabin.

Adams often likened his negatives to a composer's score and his final print as the resulting musical performance. We gain an insight into Adams's creative processes and the extent to which his photography was driven by music. Instead of using a clock in his darkroom, he employed a metronome to precisely time his processing.

Previously unbroadcast recordings of Adams at the keyboard, playing work by his favourite composers, underscore the way his pictures fused his two creative passions.


MON 23:00 Jazz Now (b08xzlr7)
Tomeka Reid Quartet

In tonight's show, Soweto Kinch presents a concert by the Chicago-Based cellist Tomeka Reid and her quartet of improvising musicians, Mary Halvorson, guitar; Jason Roebke, bass; and Tomas Fujiwara, drums. Reid works in both classical and jazz contexts, but is most well-known for her work as an improvising musician and cutting edge composer. She has been commissioned to write new works in recent years by both the AACM and the Chicago Jazz Festival. The Tomeka Reid Quartet play music from last year's eponymous album on the Thirsty Ear label, including compositions by Reid, such as Billy Bang's Bounce, but also work by the legendary reed player Eric Dolphy.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Maxwell Hutchinson

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

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the architect and broadcaster Maxwell Hutchinson. Maxwell was a practising architect for many years and in 1989 became the youngest-ever President of RIBA, the Royal Institute of British Architects. He's become one of the foremost broadcasters on architecture, presenting series on BBC Two, Channel Four and BBC Radio London. At one point Maxwell considered becoming a musician and has written three musicals and a Requiem Mass. In the last few years Maxwell has been ordained and is currently a curate at a church in Essex. As well discussing his work, his music and his life, throughout the week Maxwell will be sharing some of his favourite classical music.

10.30
Music on Location: Prague
Sarah introduces music by one of Prague's sons, the composer Josef Mysliveček, who was a friend of Mozart's.

Double Take 
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two interpretations of Grieg's song: A Swan - both orchestral performances, one featuring Solveig Kringelborn and the other Barbara Bonney.

11am
Sarah's Proms Artist of the Week is the conductor Nicholas McGegan. McGegan has been hailed as "one of the finest baroque conductors of his generation" (The Independent) and has been director of the San Francisco-based Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale for over 30 years. McGegan has also devoted much of his time to opera; he was Artistic Director of the Göttingen Handel Festival for 20 years and Principal Guest Conductor at Scottish Opera in the 1990s. As a guest conductor he's worked with orchestras around the world including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony, Hallé, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra. During the week Sarah will be featuring McGegan's recordings of Haydn's Symphony No.57, Mozart's Piano Concerto in F major K459 with Melvyn Tan, and excerpts from Purcell's Dido and Aeneas and Alessandro Scarlatti's Il Vespero di Santa Cecilia. McGegan is also a flautist and Sarah's chosen his recording of CPE Bach's Flute Quartet in D, Wq.94, with Catherine Mackintosh, Anthony Pleeth and Christopher Hogwood.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08xzrvt)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), A Visit from the Empress

Donald Macleod explores how Haydn juggled a high-profile visit from Empress Maria Theresa with the demands of composing a set of brilliant new piano sonatas.

Joseph Haydn's rightly lionised by music history as the "Father of the Symphony" - a man who took a nascent form and turned it into the very apex of musical composition. Repeating the trick with another benchmark musical genre seems almost greedy of him - and yet, with more than eighty masterful examples, Haydn's dubbed the "Father of the String Quartet" too. Which makes the neglect of one area of his musical output rather puzzling. Haydn wrote more than sixty keyboard sonatas, spanning a remarkable half-century in music history. This period saw harpsichords and clavichords replaced by the forerunners of the modern piano, and - more than that - keyboard music go from light dance suites to the sonata: a form that would shortly be elevated by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert into the very highest pinnacle of musical art. None of this could have happened without Haydn. And yet, his array of sonatas lag behind the fame and appreciation of his symphonies and quartets. This week, Donald Macleod puts that right: with no fewer than fourteen examples, in the hands of fourteen virtuoso pianists from the last century, with a supporting cast of musical excerpts from opera, chamber and vocal works.

Still ensconced in the Eszterhaza palace, deep in the Hungarian marshes, Haydn buries himself in a new set of piano sonatas - as well as his first mature attempts at opera. Donald Macleod introduces three more highly contrasting - yet equally beguiling - keyboard recordings from the BBC archives, from Monique Haas, Yakov Kasman and Christine Schornsheim.

Nicola Benedetti, violin
Thomas Søndergård

Violinist Nicola Benedetti joins Thomas Søndergård and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales as they continue their exploration of music by Shostakovich and Sibelius. Here they pair the latter's stirring Second Symphony - adopted as a potent symbol of nationalism and resistance by the people of Finland - with Shostakovich's symphonic poem October, a work whose subversive musical message sees the composer at his most pointedly political.

Shostakovich dedicated his First Violin Concerto to the celebrated violinist David Oistrakh, who praised its solo part as 'Shakespearean', and the concerto's demonic Scherzo gives its soloist plenty of opportunity for virtuosity.


TUE 21:30 New Generation Artists (b08xzxhz)

BBC New Generation Artists: the Van Kuijk Quartet play Debussy.
Ahead of their appearance at the Proms the acclaimed young French quartet are heard in a BBC recording of Debussy's early masterpiece.

TUE 22:00 Sunday Feature (b0770h0q)
Menuhin at 100

Yehudi Menuhin was one of the most influential and iconic classical musicians of the twentieth century. Menuhin at 100 explores the life and career of this remarkable prodigy through the many interviews he gave, held in the BBC archives. The violinists Tasmin Little and Leland Chen also share some of their thoughts and stories about their former mentor and colleague. This is an opportunity to get to know the man behind the violin, to revisit Menuhin telling us about his relationship with Enescu and Bartok, or recording Elgar's Violin Concerto with the composer conducting. Menuhin discusses his early life in San Francisco where he went to school only for one morning, going on to then travelling with his family as a violinist and how his upbringing impacted upon how he then raised his own family. Menuhin recounts conducting various orchestras, including once conducting the Berlin Philharmonic standing on his head, as they performed Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. His life was spent in the public glare. It was a very unique life, shaped very early on by his upbringing and indisputable talents.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b07dkdxp)
Get Playing, Alistair McGowan on playing the Piano

As part of the BBC Music Get Playing, supporting amateur music making around the UK, 5 leading writers and artists contribute an Essay in this series, in which they talk about their little-known passions for playing an instrument.

In the first programme, the impressionist, actor and writer Alistair McGowan describes his attempts to relearn the piano. He started learning as a child but gave it up to play football instead. He tried it again in his 30s but stopped when his TV series "The Big Impression" took over. Then, later on, after a midnight piano lesson on a cruise ship, he began in earnest again and discovered a new world of music-making.

Alistair is fascinated by short pieces in particular. His special favourites are the pieces he heard his mother play and also ones he has discovered on piano courses and through hearing them on the radio. A tiny nugget of Satie, Mompou or John Field carries for him all the weight of human experience and channels a musical history into one small but perfect form.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08xzrwf)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), Conflagration

Donald Macleod tells the story of how - as he plotted his exit from the Eszterhaza Place - Haydn's musical activities were interrupted by a huge fire at the estate's opera house.

Joseph Haydn's rightly lionised by music history as the "Father of the Symphony" - a man who took a nascent form and turned it into the very apex of musical composition. Repeating the trick with another benchmark musical genre seems almost greedy of him - and yet, with more than eighty masterful examples, Haydn's dubbed the "Father of the String Quartet" too. Which makes the neglect of one area of his musical output rather puzzling. Haydn wrote more than sixty keyboard sonatas, spanning a remarkable half-century in music history. This period saw harpsichords and clavichords replaced by the forerunners of the modern piano, and - more than that - keyboard music go from light dance suites to the sonata: a form that would shortly be taken by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert into the very highest pinnacle of musical art. None of this could have happened without Haydn. And yet, his array of sonatas lag behind the fame and appreciation of his symphonies and quartets. This week, Donald Macleod puts that right: with no fewer than fourteen examples, in the hands of fourteen virtuoso pianists from the last century, with a supporting cast of musical excerpts from opera, chamber and vocal works.

As Haydn's operatic activities are briefly quelled by the Eszterhazy fire, he also realises he's been overtaken as a stage composer by the brilliant precocity of his contemporary Mozart. Donald Macleod introduces another trio of the keyboard sonatas Haydn wrote during this period - in the virtuoso hands of Ronald Brautigam, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, and one of the giants of 20th century recorded music: Glenn Gould.

Daniel Barenboim and the Staatskapelle Berlin bring the generous scope of their interpretation of Elgar's Second Symphony to their second concert of the season, celebrating a work whose modernity and astonishing textural effects startle even now.
Dedicated to the memory of Peter Maxwell Davies, who died last year, Sir Harrison Birtwistle's Deep Time continues his career-long fascination with time and its manipulation in a sweeping new orchestral work that swaps the relentless tick-tock of the everyday for something more powerful and more alien.

2017, Prom 7: Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique

Live at the BBC Proms: the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Joshua Weilerstein perform Rebel, Berlioz and the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin's Outscape at this year's BBC Proms.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Jean-Féry Rebel: Le Chaos from "Les Elémens"
Pascal Dusapin: Outscape* (BBC co-commission: UK premiere)

8.00pm INTERVAL - Proms Extra
Richard Davenport-Hines - author of 'The Pursuit of Oblivion: A Social History of Drugs' - considers how opium became a stimulus to creativity in Paris in the 19th century for writers such as Baudelaire, Apollinaire and Mallarmé and in the plot underpinning Symphonie Fantastique. He's joined by historian and Radio 3 New Generation Thinker Dr Daisy Hay, author of 'Young Romantics: The Shelleys, Byron and Other Tangled Lives'. The presenter is Matthew Sweet.
Recorded earlier this evening as a Proms Extra with an audience at Imperial College
Producer: Jacqueline Smith

8.20pm
Hector Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique, Op.14

Alisa Weilerstein (cello)*
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Joshua Weilerstein (conductor)

Visions of chaos give way to a diabolical scene in a musical thrill-ride that takes us from creation itself to the wild dances of a Witches' Sabbath. Jean-Féry Rebel's suite The Elements is one of Baroque music's most unusual works, opening with a vivid portrait of Chaos. The same audacity surfaces a century later in Berlioz's quasi-autobiographical Symphonie fantastique, whose large orchestral forces and colourful textures make it a perfect fit for the Royal Albert Hall.

Star cellist Alisa Weilerstein is soloist for the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin's nature-inspired concerto Outscape - a work written for her - while her brother, rising young star Joshua Weilerstein, conducts.


WED 22:00 Sunday Feature (b07f6mh8)
Antonio Carlos Gomes, the Brazilian Who Conquered La Scala

Travelling to both Brazil and Milan, the musician and broadcaster Fabio Zanon tells the remarkable story of the mixed-race Brazilian composer Carlos Gomes, who conquered La Scala in the second half of the 19th century with operas in the Italian style, yet full of the exotic flavours of his homeland, such as Il Guarany and Lo Schiavo (The Slave). The programme explores the nature of his success, which was due to his natural talent, to the connections he was able to make in Italian circles, and also - in no small measure - to his personal physical appearance. Gomes, who lived in Italy for three decades, kept travelling back to Brazil to show his work and to be in touch with the tense political and social situation in the country as a new republic, free of slavery, was emerging. He became an unprecedented national hero in the process, but as the programme examines, his image experienced a dramatic change during the early 20th century, when new nationalistic winds favoured a different kind of music. It's only recently that his image has been restored nearly to his former glory, not least by the efforts of people like Placido Domingo, who has starred in international mega-productions of Il Guarany, on both sides of the Atlantic.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b07dkjsy)
Get Playing, Get Playing: Joanne Harris on playing the flute and bass guitar

As part of BBC Music Get Playing, supporting amateur music making around the UK, 5 leading writers and artists contribute an Essay in this series, in which they talk about their little-known passions for playing an instrument.

In the second programme, the award-winning novelist Joanne Harris (best known for her novel "Chocolat") describes how she learned to play the flute as a child. This was followed by the bass guitar which she began after falling in love with a drummer in a band and wanting to join.

When she heard the story told by her grandfather of how he had refused to hand his double bass over to a Nazi soldier in occupied France, the young Joanne Harris realised that a musical instrument could be a powerful force. She began playing herself, first the flute and then, as a 16 year old, the bass guitar. She's continued to play both instruments and is now developing a way of telling stories in performances which incorporates music.

In this Essay, Joanne tells the story of her performing life and considers the way in which music can be an essential part of storytelling.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08xzrwt)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809), At Last, Freedom

Donald Macleod explores the aftermath of one of the most important moments of Haydn's life: the death of his patron Prince Nikolaus Eszterhazy, leaving the composer free to travel.

Joseph Haydn's rightly lionised by music history as the "Father of the Symphony" - a man who took a nascent form and turned it into the very apex of musical composition. Repeating the trick with another benchmark musical genre seems almost greedy of him - and yet, with more than eighty masterful examples, Haydn's dubbed the "Father of the String Quartet" too. Which makes the neglect of one area of his musical output rather puzzling. Haydn wrote more than sixty keyboard sonatas, spanning a remarkable half-century in music history. This period saw harpsichords and clavichords replaced by the forerunners of the modern piano, and - more than that - keyboard music go from light dance suites to the sonata: a form that would shortly be taken by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert into the very highest pinnacle of musical art. None of this could have happened without Haydn. And yet, his array of sonatas lag behind the fame and appreciation of his symphonies and quartets. This week, Donald Macleod puts that right: with no fewer than fourteen examples, in the hands of fourteen virtuoso pianists from the last century, with a supporting cast of musical excerpts from opera, chamber and vocal works.

In today's episode Donald Macleod explores two key relationships - one professional, one personal - crucial to the development of Haydn's keyboard sonatas. He introduces the composer's business dealings with the publisher Artaria, who would commission a number of new works, as well as Haydn's deep - and unrequited - affection for the pianist Maria Anna von Genzinger. Featuring two more complete sonata recordings performed by Emanuel Ax and Andreas Staier.

The two symphonies that frame this Prom each offer a defiant, optimistic challenge to the status quo.

Conductor Bernard Haitink - a Proms regular for over half a century - returns with frequent collaborators, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. They are joined by award-winning German violinist Isabelle Faust, the soloist in Mozart's graceful Violin Concerto No. 3.

Some of them returned home, but others lost their lives. Through their own words and their music, Kate traces the human stories and examines some of the wider questions which historians still argue about today, and looks at the role which music plays in this complex narrative.

Donald Macleod explores Haydn's second and final trip to London in the mid 1790s - a trip that would accompany the composition of his last three keyboard sonata masterpieces.

Joseph Haydn's rightly lionised by music history as the "Father of the Symphony" - a man who took a nascent form and turned it into the very apex of musical composition. Repeating the trick with another benchmark musical genre seems almost greedy of him - and yet, with more than eighty masterful examples, Haydn's dubbed the "Father of the String Quartet" too. Which makes the neglect of one area of his musical output rather puzzling. Haydn wrote more than sixty keyboard sonatas, spanning a remarkable half-century in music history. This period saw harpsichords and clavichords replaced by the forerunners of the modern piano, and - more than that - keyboard music go from light dance suites to the sonata: a form that would shortly be taken by Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert into the very highest pinnacle of musical art. None of this could have happened without Haydn. And yet, his array of sonatas lag behind the fame and appreciation of his symphonies and quartets. This week, Donald Macleod puts that right: with no fewer than fourteen examples, in the hands of fourteen virtuoso pianists from the last century, with a supporting cast of musical excerpts from opera, chamber and vocal works.

Haydn would write his final three sonatas for keyboard around the time of his second visit to London, for the acclaimed pianist Therese Jansen. Donald Macleod ends the week with a complete performance of all three, in the hands of Alfred Brendel, Malcolm Bilson, and a remarkable recent recording by the young Polish virtuoso Rafal Blechacz.

The first of three politically charged stage works this season is Beethoven's only opera, 'Fidelio' - a passionate musical protest against political oppression, first performed in Vienna in the wake of the French Revolution to an audience mostly consisting of Napoleon's troops. At its heart is the stirring "Prisoners' Chorus", a poignant hymn to freedom and the power of the human spirit. The BBC Philharmonic brings its highly acclaimed performance to the Proms with a cast starring Australian tenor Stuart Skelton as the imprisoned Florestan, and soprano Ricarda Merbeth as his faithful and resourceful wife Leonore.
