SAT 11:00 Edinburgh International Festival (b09023kl)
2017 Queen's Hall Series, Dunedin Consort

The Dunedin Consort launch the 2017 Queen's Hall series live from Edinburgh with a programme featuring a recently rediscovered work by Monteverdi which was transcribed by Schütz into German. 'Combattimento', known in its original form as 'Il combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda' is the fateful love story of a Christian soldier and his Saracen lover at the time of the first Crusades. Monteverdi's original work is notable for one of the earliest known inclusions of the string instrument effects of pizzicato and tremolo. The programme begins with a number of instrumental and vocal works by contemporary composers from German and Italy.

Presented by Donald Macleod

Froberger: Toccata in G major
Monteverdi: Armato il cor
Monteverdi: Zefiro torna
Marini: Passacaglio à 4
Schütz: Güldne Haare, gleich Aurore
Buxtehude: Sonata in A major

Schütz: Es steh Gott auf

Interval at around 11.50am
As the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival gets under way, Donald Macleod takes a look at the Spanish conductor Pablo Heras-Casado who has the honour of conducting the Opening Concert from the Usher Hall and plays the first movement of his recording of Mendelssohn's Symphony No 3 with the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra.

SAT 13:00 Edinburgh 70: Nothing Short of a Miracle (b09024b9)

The Edinburgh Festival was founded 70 years ago in the aftermath of World War Two. 1947 was a year of shortages and rationing, and the idea of starting an arts festival in Scotland's capital city must have seemed highly ambitious. Yet with the support of the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Rudolf Bing, the general manager of Glydenbourne Festival Opera, undertook the challenge. It was to prove an international success that has lasted 70 years.

With contributions from those who attended the first festivals in the 1940s and music from early performances, Jim Naughtie reflects on the origins of what has become the world's greatest arts festival.

Producer Mark Rickards.


SAT 13:30 Saturday Classics (b09064bj)
Evelyn Glennie

Percussionist Evelyn Glennie has commissioned many new concertos for percussion and orchestra.
In this programme she explores other concertos for unusual solo instruments. Her selection includes Leopold Mozart's Alphorn Concerto, Malcolm Arnold's Harmonica Concerto, Rautavaara's Concerto for Birds and Orchestra and Piazzolla's Concerto for Bandoneon. She also includes concertos for didjeridoo, glass harmonica, jew's harp and for choir.
The concerto form in classical music is usually associated with a small number of solo instruments - piano, violin, cello, clarinet, perhaps trumpet. But in this programme Evelyn Glennie shows that many other instruments can shine in the soloist's spotlight, from the growling tones of the didjeridoo to the otherworldly flutings of the glass harmonica, for which no less a composer than Mozart wrote a piece. And Finnish composer Rautavaara had the inspiration to make recordings of arctic bird calls, which became the solo part in his Cantus Arcticus (Concerto for Birds and Orchestra).

Producer Philip Tagney.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b09024bc)

Matthew Sweet presents a selection of film music inspired by the space opera genre following the release of Luc Besson's "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" with a new score by Alexandre Desplat.

The programme looks at some of the earliest examples of space operas, including "Flash Gordon" and "Buck Rogers", defining the genre, and features music from the likes of "Battlestar Galactica", "Battle Beyond The Stars", "Star Trek - Beyond", "Dune", "The Last Starfighter", "Serenity", "Jupiter Ascending", "The Fifth Element" and of course, "Star Wars" which perhaps did more than any other film to establish the musical sound of space opera.

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
Thomas Adès (conductor)

Hear some of the UK's finest young musical talent, directed by composer and conductor Thomas Adès, in a bold programme of works that push the orchestra to its technical and sonic limits. Adès's own Polaris, subtitled 'A Voyage for Orchestra', takes inspiration from the North Star, conjuring a vast interstellar landscape that unfolds from a simple piano theme into a massive sonic spiral. Francisco Coll's Mural, tonight receiving its London premiere, is another richly textured, large-scale work - a 'grotesque symphony, in which Dionysus meets Apollo'. The concert's climax is Stravinsky's ballet score The Rite of Spring, whose frenzied rhythms and provocative harmonies prompted a legendary riot at its Paris premiere.

Interval: Tom Redmond and Georgia Mann talk to members of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain, past and present.

Edinburgh. Sunday - Martin Handley

Breakfast from Edinburgh. Martin Handley presents an eclectic mix of music reflecting events at the Edinburgh Festival, celebrating its 70th anniversary this year. Part of BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals.

Producer Peter Thresh.


SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b0902h7q)

James Jolly with music including Graziani's Cello Concerto in C. His young artist is pianist Alexandre Kantorow and the week's focus on a work that ought to be heard more often is Schubert's Symphony No. 4 (the 'Tragic') in a celebrated recording conducted by Karl Münchinger with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0902h7t)
Nick Davies

Nick Davies is an expert in the art of deception - as practised by the cuckoo. He has spent his career studying that deceiving, murderous bird, and living in woods and wild gardens, even up in a mountain hut in the Pyrenees. He's a hugely influential scientist: since the late 1970s he's really helped define the field in behavioural ecology, and he's Professor of Behavioural Ecology at the University of Cambridge and a fellow of Pembroke College. But really, as he tells Michael Berkeley, he's happier not sitting in a library, but roaming the fens.

In Private Passions, Nick Davies reveals what he's learned about bird behaviour, and how birds use song to compete and, sometimes, collaborate to sing duets. He explains how some birds sing in poetry, some in prose; and why the blackbird in your back garden is a better songster than the nightingale. Music choices reflect his passion for the beauty of the natural world: Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony, for instance, Vaughan Williams's Lark Ascending, and songs by Herbert Howells and Samuel Barber about the transformative power of nature. We also hear the song of larks, nightingales, blackbirds, pink-footed geese - and the croaking of natterjack toads.

SUN 13:00 BBC Proms (b08zddt6)
2017, PCM 3: From the Kalevala to Kaustinen: Finnish Folk and Baroque Music

From Cadogan Hall, London, a meeting of Baroque music and Finnish folk, ranging from Corelli and 16th-century spiritual songs to music from the Kaustinen region.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Finnish folk music meets familiar Baroque textures in a programme exploring two genres with a shared love of song and dance.

Anu Komsi (soprano)
Kreeta-Maria Kentala (violin)
Andrew Lawrence-King (harp, kantele, psaltery)
Eero Palviainen (theorbo, guitar)
Milla Viljamaa (harmonium)

Soprano Anu Komsi and violinist Kreeta-Maria Kentala both have family roots in the folk-rich municipality of Kaustinen, western Finland. They are joined by fellow boundary-crossing musicians for a whistle-stop journey through Finnish musical history encompassing the 16th-century Piae cantiones (the earliest printed book of Finnish music) and the 19th-century national folk epic, the Kalevala, which so inspired Sibelius. The concert also features favourites by Corelli and other Baroque composers, as well as folk songs from Kaustinen and music by Kreeta Haapasalo (1813-93), who was born in the region.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b0902h80)
The English Virginals

Harpsichordist Sophie Yates visits Westwood Manor in Wiltshire to look at a recently restored 1538 ottavino virginals and discusses the history of the instrument, which had cult-like status in Elizabethan and Jacobean society.


SUN 15:00 Choral Evensong (b08zdnjy)
Transfiguration Cathedral, St Petersburg (archive recording from August 2003)

Archive recording from 2003 for the Feast of the Transfiguration from the Cathedral of the Transfiguration, St Petersburg, Russia, in the 300th anniversary year of the city's founding. The service is led by the Archpriest, Father Boris Glebov, and the Cathedral Choir directed by Vladimir Lvov sings music by Allemanov, Smolensky, Burmatin, Tretyakov, Zakharov and Tchesnokov. The Gospel for the day is Luke 9: 28-36. Father Vladimir Fyodorov gives the homily and the commentator is Canon Michael Bourdeaux.

Prom 24 repeat: Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts John Adams

Esa‐Pekka Salonen, Philharmonia Orchestra and mezzo Marianne Crebassa with music by Johann Sebastian Bach arranged by Stravinsky, Maurice Ravel and John Adams.

Presented by Andrew McGregor from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Johann Sebastian Bach: Canonic Variations on 'Vom Himmel hoch, da komm, ich her', BWV 769 (arr. Stravinsky)

Marianne Crebassa, mezzo-soprano
Philharmonia Voices
Philharmonia Orchestra
Esa‐Pekka Salonen, conductor

The celebrations of John Adams's 70th birthday continue with his Naive and Sentimental Music, conducted by its dedicatee, Esa-Pekka Salonen. A symphony in all but name, the work glows with multi-layered textures. From meditative Minimalism to intricate counterpoint in Stravinsky's Canonic Variations on 'Vom Himmel hoch, da komm' ich her' - a colourful 'recomposition' of Bach's own chorale variations on the Lutheran hymn. Rising French mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa is the soloist in Ravel's heady song-cycle Shéhérazade, an exotic musical fantasy of distant lands and forbidden love.

SUN 22:30 Words and Music (b0902kfb)
Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang!

Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang! is a brazen attempt to lure you into temptation. It's a fast ride to a place where sex and violence collide. People literally dance for their lives or are ordered to stay glued to their seats or risk losing theirs. It's the world of noir - the world of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, James M Cain, Chester Himes and Elmore Leonard. It's a world populated by "friends of Italian opera" as Billy Wilder famously put it in Some Like it Hot. Rigoletto is a well established gangster favourite but you'll also hear Carreras singing Amapola and Pavarotti's Chi mi frena in tal momento - not to mention John Adams's City Noir, John Zorn's Spillane and Kurt Weill. Tracy-Ann Oberman and Henry Goodman brave the shadows and lead us along the mean streets deep into the poisoned heart of this modern darkness.

Rob's guest this week is the BBC News presenter and correspondent Clive Myrie. Clive is one of the regular evening presenters on the BBC News Channel and News at Ten, and has worked in broadcast news and journalism throughout his career, almost exclusively for the BBC.

Since becoming one of the BBC's main anchors in London, he has continued to make special reports about subjects ranging from Barack Obama to wars in Kosovo and Afghanistan. As well as discussing his life and work, Clive shares some of his favourite classical music throughout the week, including pieces he played as a teenager in his local youth orchestra by Schubert and Mussorgsky.

Rob's Proms Artist of the Week is the British conductor John Wilson. Wilson is celebrated for his on-stage charisma and has been applauded repeatedly for the rich and colourful sounds that he draws from orchestras in repertoire ranging from the core classical through to the twentieth century. Wilson has conducted many of the leading British orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and has made a number of recordings with the BBC Concert Orchestra. This week he brings The John Wilson Orchestra to the BBC Proms, and earlier in the season he conducted his first Prom as Associate Guest Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Maxim Emelyanychev, director

Still in his early twenties, French cellist Edgar Moreau is already making his mark with the exuberant virtuosity of his playing. Here he joins the Baroque ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro for a programme focusing on 18th-century concertos.

Charged with all the rhetorical and emotional intensity of opera arias, these wonderfully expressive and colourful works range from the fretful melancholy of Vivaldi's Cello Concerto in A minor to the poised elegance of Boccherini's Concerto in D major and the irrepressible joy of Platti's Concerto in D major.


MON 14:00 Afternoon on 3 (b0902nrj)
Prom 23 repeat: Handel - Israel in Egypt

Afternoon on 3 - with Penny Gore

Another chance to hear the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment conducted by William Christie in Handel's Israel in Egypt, one of the composer's most dramatic oratorios.

Choir and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
William Christie, conductor

Filled with frogs, locusts, hailstones and rivers of blood, Israel in Egypt is one of Handel's most extravagant oratorios and, by placing the chorus in the spotlight, Handel uses the collective voices to tell the story of an entire people.
In this performance of the 1739 version, William Christie conducts the period ensemble the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, joined by the group's own choir, in the launch of a series of Handel oratorios to be performed over the coming seasons at the Proms.

Donald Macleod introduces a concert overture with a chequered career, a group of piano pieces based on a collection of folk music transcriptions Grieg would re-visit throughout his career, a violin sonata praised by Liszt and an intriguing collaboration with one of Norway's most important writers, based on tales from the old Norse sagas.

Her findings will keep her busy for a long time to come. She describes what it was like wriggling into these remote spaces, knowing they were the first people to have ever done so. This in a place where the rest of the world's population of 7.3 billion people lives well south of their northern latitude.

The wonder of being there contrasts with the work that lies ahead of her, to analyse the flowstone in the caves they came to sample, and to find out what it tells us of previous times when the earth's climate warmed up, just as it's doing again now.

Afternoon on 3 with Penny Gore

Another chance to hear Paavo Järvi conducting the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen in Mozart and Brahms, plus the UK premiere of a new work by Erkki-Sven Tüür.

Presented from the Royal Albert Hall, London by Martin Handley

Erkki-Sven Tüür: Flamma (UK premiere)
Mozart: Sinfonia concertante in E flat major
Brahms: Symphony No. 2 in D major

The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen
Paavo Järvi, conductor

The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and its Artistic Director Paavo Järvi return to the Proms, joined by British violist Lawrence Power and Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang for Mozart's genial Sinfonia concertante.
Sitting somewhere between a concerto and a symphony, it's a perfect showcase for the virtuosity of this ensemble and its sunny good humour offers a striking contrast to Erkki-Sven Tüür's arresting Flamma - a vivid musical portrait of fire as both purifying force and agent of destruction.
Smoke clears and sunshine returns in Brahms's optimistic Second Symphony, with its free-flowing melodies and irrepressible closing dance.

[First broadcast on Thursday 3rd August]

Followed by a selection of music from this week's Proms artists.

Sir John Eliot Gardiner

Sir John Eliot Gardiner returns to the Proms with The Damnation of Faust, continuing his multi-season Berlioz series. Part opera, part cantata, this 'dramatic legend' is an epic retelling of the Faust story that captures the extremes of man's ambition and folly in music by turns exquisite and grotesque. American tenor Michael Spyres returns to the Proms in the title-role, with Swedish mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg as the innocent victim, Marguerite.


TUE 22:30 Free Thinking (b08jb15d)
Festival 2017, The Never-Ending Workday

Sathnam Sanghera, Judy Wajcman, Griselda Togobo and Robert Colvile join Radio 3 presenter Matthew Sweet to look at the history of the workplace from factory floor to hot desk to the gig economy and debate whether the merging of workplace and home creates more stress.

Bosses have always monitored and changed our working day, clocking staff in and out the factory, analysing productivity through time and motion studies, using remote monitoring, introducing flexible working and "logging on later."

Sathnam Sanghera is a journalist and award-winning author of Marriage Material: A Novel and The Boy with the Topknot: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton. Before becoming a writer he (among other things) worked at a burger chain, a hospital laundry, a market research firm, a sewing factory and a literacy project in New York.

Judy Wajcman is a Professor of Society at LSE and the author of Pressed for Time: The Acceleration of Life in Digital Capitalism .

Griselda Togobo is an entrepreneur, engineer, chartered accountant and the head of Forward Ladies, an organisation which aims to help companies maximise the potential of their female staff.

Robert Colvile is a journalist and author of The Great Acceleration - a new book about how
technology is speeding up the pace of life.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead.

Producer: Craig Smith.

Verity Sharp with Edinburgh Festival 2017 friends

BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals: Verity is in the Scottish capital to find the best fringe, art and international festival happenings. Local artist and composer Hanna Tuulikki performs live from the studio, while we also hear from actress and director Josette Bushell-Mingo OBE.

Tuulikki is interested primarily in voice and gesture, creating immersive spaces and playing with the lore of places. She is one of eight composers that has written an original choral work for 'Echoes And Traces' at the Fringe festival, in response to one of Scotland's oldest pieces of music, Nobilis Humilis. Her installation 'spinning-in-stereo' can also currently be seen at Dovecot Studios in Edinburgh.

Bushell-Mingo is starring in her own production, 'Nina', at the Traverse Theatre. The play mixes story and song to celebrate the life of Nina Simone, and draws comparisons between the civil rights movement then and today.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

Another chance to hear the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain is conducted by Thomas Adès in works by himself and Francisco Coll, plus Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring.

Presented from the Royal Albert Hall, London by Tom Redmond

Francisco Coll: Mural
Thomas Adès: Polaris
Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
Thomas Adès (conductor)

Hear some of the UK's finest young musical talent, directed by composer and conductor Thomas Adès, in a bold programme of works that push the orchestra to its technical and sonic limits. Adès's own Polaris, subtitled 'A Voyage for Orchestra', takes inspiration from the North Star, conjuring a vast interstellar landscape that unfolds from a simple piano theme into a massive sonic spiral. Francisco Coll's Mural, tonight receiving its London premiere, is another richly textured, large-scale work - a 'grotesque symphony, in which Dionysus meets Apollo'. The concert's climax is Stravinsky's ballet score The Rite of Spring, whose frenzied rhythms and provocative harmonies prompted a legendary riot at its Paris premiere.

[First broadcast on Saturday 5th August]

Followed by a selection of music from this week's Proms artists.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907), Edvard and Nina

Grieg was at a spiritual and physical low ebb at the beginning of the 1880s. His health deteriorated and his marriage reached crisis point. He took up the baton as conductor of the orchestra in his home town of Bergen where he faced an uphill struggle to improve musical standards. Donald Macleod introduces music written during these difficult years including Grieg's cello sonata and the famous suite he composed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the 18th-century dramatist Ludwig Holberg, in its original version for piano.

Ryan Wigglesworth (conductor)

Ryan Wigglesworth joins the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales for a programme that spans four centuries, from Purcell's dramatic choral motet 'Jehova, quam multi sunt hostes mei', to the world premiere of Brian Elias's Cello Concerto, whose intricate, spiral structure creates a dream-like musical narrative.
The concert opens with Britten's most overtly political work - an impassioned musical stand against fascism that anticipates the composer's War Requiem; and reaches its culmination with Elgar's 'Enigma' Variations, which includes the much-loved 'Nimrod'.

Producer Tim Thorne.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b08ljzpx)
Festival 2017, Writing Life

Poet Simon Armitage and writer Alexandra Harris explore time and place in modern Britain. Presented by Philip Dodd and recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead.

Simon Armitage, Professor of Poetry at Oxford University, has been described as 'the best poet of his generation'. His latest collection The Unaccompanied explores life against a backdrop of economic recession and social division where globalisation has made alienation a common experience. He was born in West Yorkshire and lives near Saddleworth Moor. His work includes his translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and books exploring the South west's coast path and the Pennine Way.

Alexandra Harris is Professor of Literature at the University of Liverpool and a New Generation Thinker. She is the author of Weatherland: Writers and Artists under English Skies and Romantic Moderns.

Producer: Fiona McLean.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b06r58yw)
Cornerstones, Cornerstones: Siberia

Daniel Kalder conjures up the vast landscapes east of the Urals, where taiga becomes tundra. Siberia is more a state of mind than a place, given how the term encompasses not only the endless forests of the taiga but also that which lies beyond them, where the trees dwindle, diminish and finally give way to the tundra's ceaseless realms of permafrost. As part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season Kalder, a travel writer who's lived in and travelled around Russia, reflects on how ice and wind vies with geology to shape these memorable tracts. And in that land of ice, not just the cryogenically preserved woolly mammoths, but is it true that former Soviet apparatchiks are buried with their medals, in full state regalia?

Producer: Mark Smalley.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b0902y50)
Verity Sharp with an Edinburgh Festival 2017 concert

BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals: Verity presents a magnificent line-up of musicians and artists, handpicked from the current festivals and the city's underground scene, for a special Late Junction showcase.

Listen at home or join us in the audience at our broadcast hub in George Heriot's School for live performances from Alasdair Roberts, James Robertson, Aidan O'Rourke, Raymond MacDonald, and Lauren Sarah Hayes.

Prolific singer Alasdair Roberts is as adept writing epic ballads as he is performing centuries-old folksongs. In a 24 year career he has worked with the likes of Isobel Campbell, Jason Molina, and Will Oldham, and released 11 timeless solo albums. His latest, 'Pangs', is one of our favourite records of the year so far on Late Junction. He performs gigs in Edinburgh later this month.

Folk fiddler Aidan O'Rourke was inspired to write a tune a day for a year as a response to author James Robertson's book, '365'. The pair will perform part of this project live at the Book Festival on the 17th of August, and play us a special preview tonight.

Raymond MacDonald is a saxophonist who explores the boundaries between improvisation and composition. He has collaborated with Evan Parker, David Byrne, and Jim O'Rourke, and passed on his knowledge as Professor of Music Psychology and Improvisation at Edinburgh University. He will be playing tonight with a group of 'Friends', including students and academic colleagues.

Lauren Sarah Hayes is a member of the New BBC Radiophonic Workshop who builds her own hybrid instruments to perform a brand of experimental pop, techno, and noise. She completed a PhD in Edinburgh in 2013, researching the relationships between sound and touch, and is still based in the city.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

2017, Prom 33: Grieg, Sibelius, Schumann and Hindemith

Live at BBC Proms: BBC Philharmonic and conductor John Storgards with soprano Lise Davidsen and cellist Alban Gerhardt in Grieg, Sibelius, Schumann and Hindemith.

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

Grieg: Peer Gynt (excerpts)
Sibelius: Luonnotar; Karelia Suite
Schumann: Cello Concerto in A minor, Op.129
Hindemith: Symphony 'Mathis der Maler'

BBC Philharmonic
Lise Davidsen (soprano)
Alban Gerhardt (cello)
John Storgårds (conductor)

Norwegian soprano Lise Davidsen makes her Proms debut singing Solveig's Song from Grieg's incidental music to Ibsen's dark drama 'Peer Gynt' and in Sibelius's late, great tone-poem Luonnotar. The sophisticated orchestral textures and sensuous melodies of Luonnotar contrast with the rough-hewn folk music of the same composer's struggle for freedom from Russian tyranny in his buoyant Karelia Suite.
Hindemith's opera 'Mathis der Maler', is set at the time of the Protestant Reformation; it was dubbed as "degenerate" by the Nazi regime who then banned all performances of his music. But not before the Symphony drawn from the opera was premiered in March 1934 at one of the early peaks of Hitler's power by one his artistic favourites and persuasive defenders of the artistic credo, Wilhelm Furtwängler. Alban Gerhardt is the soloist in Schumann's Cello Concerto, which rejects overt solo virtuosity, favouring instead dialogue between cello and orchestra.


THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b08jb15b)
Festival 2017, The Speed of Revolution

Three leading historians, Bettany Hughes, Sir Richard J Evans and John Hall join Free Thinking presenter Philip Dodd to consider tumultuous times and how we make sense of sweeping change from classical times, through empire building and the industrial revolution to the present day. True revolutions are rare game-changers in the slow unravelling of the human story. Others fizzle out like small showy rockets, all light and no heat. But how obvious is it at the time ?

Dr Bettany Hughes is well known as a TV and radio broadcaster, an award-winning historian and author specialising in ancient and medieval history and culture. Her books include Helen of Troy, The Hemlock Cup and, most recently, Istanbul: a Tale of Three Cities.

Sir Richard J Evans is an academic and historian, best known for his research on the history of Germany in the 19th and 20th centuries. President of Wolfson College in Cambridge, his most recent books are The Pursuit of Power: Europe 1815-1914, The Third Reich in History and Memory and Altered Pasts: Counterfactual in History.

Professor John Hall is IAS Fellow at University College, Durham University (Jan - March 2017). Normally based at McGill University in Montreal, Professor Hall is currently writing about Nations, States and Empires. His books include The Importance of Being Civil, The World of States, Powers and Liberties:The Causes and Consequences of the Rise of the West.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead.

Producer: Torquil MacLeod.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b06r58zd)
Cornerstones, Northern Lights - Cornerstones: Alaska

Environmental journalist Jason Mark visits Alaska's remote northern rim, and on the shores of the Arctic Ocean at a barbecue with Inuits, he reflects on the impact of our lust for hydrocarbons. Whilst the ice melts beneath them, so the search goes on for oil in these northern parts. He tries to grasp what he sees as the bitter ironies of climate change, confirmed by his encounters with Inuit hunters and others who describe how much the weather is warming.

Producer: Mark Smalley.

Rob has chosen to feature Wilson's recordings of music by Edward German, Arnold Bax, Copland and Gershwin, as well as Eric Coates's take on a song by Richard Rodgers.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0902zhz)
Edinburgh International Festival 70, Edinburgh 70: Rostropovich on Bach

In 1974, Russian cellist Rostropovich was exiled from Russia for his outspoken political views against the Soviet government and his support for other high-profile dissidents such as the composer Shostakovich and the writer Solzhenitsyn. This concert at St Cuthbert's Church in Edinburgh marks his appearance the following year at the 1975 Festival with three Suites for solo cello by JS Bach.

JS Bach: Sarabande from Suite No 2 in D minor, BWV 1008

Afternoon on 3 with Penny Gore

Another chance to hear the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales and Ryan Wigglesworth with Leonard Elschenbroich, Toby Spence and Nicholas Perfect perform Britten, Elias, Purcell and Elgar.

Presented from the Royal Albert Hall, London, by Petroc Trelawny

Britten: Ballad of Heroes
Brian Elias: Cello Concerto
Purcell, arr Elgar: Jehova, quam multi sunt
Elgar: Enigma Variations

BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales
Leonard Elschenbroich (cello)
Toby Spence (tenor)
Nicholas Perfect (bass)
Ryan Wigglesworth (conductor)

Ryan Wigglesworth joins the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales for a programme that spans four centuries, from Purcell's dramatic choral motet 'Jehova, quam multi sunt hostes mei', to the world premiere of Brian Elias's Cello Concerto, whose intricate, spiral structure creates a dream-like musical narrative.
The concert opens with Britten's most overtly political work - an impassioned musical stand against fascism that anticipates the composer's War Requiem; and reaches its culmination with Elgar's 'Enigma' Variations, which includes the much-loved 'Nimrod'.

[First broadcast on Wednesday 9th August]

Followed by a selection of music from this week's Proms artists

Producer Clive Portbury.

FRI 18:30 Composer of the Week (b0902zv2)
Edvard Grieg (1843-1907), The Father of Norwegian Music

Much of Grieg's time was spent away from home, touring and giving concerts across Europe despite his worsening health. Not long before his death he befriended the young pianist and composer Percy Grainger in whom Grieg found the perfect interpreter of his piano music. Donald Macleod introduces a selection from Grieg's penultimate collection of piano works - widely regarded as some of his most innovative writing, Grieg's last great unaccompanied choral work and the moving funeral march he wrote for his friend Rikard Nordraak forty years earlier and which was played at Grieg's own funeral.
