9.30am
Building a Library: Mahan Esfahani recommends a recording of César Franck's Symphony in D minor.

Today, a new recording of Franck's only symphony is a rare event and it has all but disappeared from the concert hall. But with its satisfying cyclic form and impressive fusion of French and German musical traditions it was once a work that every self-respecting maestro had in his repertoire and which generated an impressive recorded legacy, a veritable Who's Who of the great conductors of the last century. There have been signs, though, of a renewed interest in it among some of today's conductors, represented by a handful of more recent recordings.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b095py6c)
Sakari Oramo on Sibelius

Presented by Tom Service

Tom talks to Sakari Oramo, Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, as they embark on a cycle of Sibelius's symphonies at the Barbican Centre in London.

Inside rehearsals for a new production of Verdi's Aida at English National Opera, Tom meets the director Phelim McDermott - who's known for his work with Philip Glass and sees Verdi's opera as a partner piece for Glass's Egyptian-themed opera Akhnaten - and the conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson.

The critic Paul Driver and music writer and teacher Frances Wilson discuss the role of music criticism today, as a new biography of Ernest Newman, the most celebrated critic in early 20th-century Britain, comes out.

And organ builder and restorer Martin Renshaw talks about his crusade, including a conference in London this weekend, to save church organs across the UK, which are falling into disrepair or are being sold abroad.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b095vj2m)

In this week's Sunday Morning selection, Jonathan Swain explores new releases of Mozart's Marriage of Figaro and Nielsen's Wind Quintet Op. 43. He also plays Mime Yamiharo Brinkmann in Boccherini's Cello Sonata in B flat major, and John Adams's creative exploration of Beethoven ideas in Absolute Jest.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b095q0dj)
Stephen Poliakoff

Stephen Poliakoff made his mark as a playwright very early; he began writing plays as a schoolboy and got first review in The Times when he was only seventeen. At the age of twenty-four he became writer in residence at the National Theatre and he's also written for the RSC. But it's as a television scriptwriter and director that Poliakoff is now best-known, with series such as "Shooting the Past", "Dancing on the Edge" and recently, "Close to the Enemy". Some of our very greatest actors - Maggie Smith, Lindsey Duncan, Timothy Spall - have queued up to work with him time and again. There have been nineteen television dramas and films to date, broadcast over the last forty years, and though they all have different settings, there's a strong atmosphere in common. Filmed in strange dream-like locations - old train carriages, empty country houses, abandoned ballrooms - they explore how the past haunts the present. And in particular, family secrets.

Poliakoff claims that every family has at least three good stories in it; and his certainly has more than its fair share. In Private Passions he tells Michael Berkeley about how his father witnessed the Russian Revolution as a boy, and reflects on the influence of Russian culture on his childhood. He talks too about the importance of trying to observe life with the fresh curiosity of a child, and how his films capture a child's-eye view.

Music choices include Mozart's Concerto for Flute and Harp; Bach's Cantata "O Jesu Christ, mein Lebens Licht"; Haydn's Symphony No 49 and Michael Tippett's Concerto for Double String Orchestra.

The Bach Choir bring to life a lost masterpiece from the hand of Charles Villiers Stanford.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b095q2x9)
Music for Mourning

Tom Service asks why music has always been an essential part of mourning. With the help of cognitive neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday, he compares the music of two royal funerals separated by three centuries, and by tracing the development of funeral music into abstract art music he uncovers the private grief behind Bach's great D-minor violin Chaconne. And before ending with a Top Ten countdown of today's UK musical funeral favourites, he ponders why some music, never intended to be mournful, becomes indelibly associated with grieving.

Producer David Papp.

Mindfulness and 'I': the sense of self

Poetry, prose and music reflecting on the meaning of our existence. This edition takes you through an imagined mindfulness session, opening up a path of self-awareness. The programme flows as a carefully driven stream of consciousness, but also aims to place the listener in a pre-meditative state. it's a personal journey into your inner-self so the texts mostly an explore the first person, mirroring ordinary human interaction, through feelings like love and anguish, whilst also revealing deeply felt responses to our everyday contact with the outer world, with nature and our environment.

Nobody Knows My Name: Notes on James Baldwin

In this documentary we hear archive of the renowned American writer James Baldwin in conversation with contemporary writers and activists. Exploring the reasons behind the resonance and resurgence of his work and analysis thirty years after his death.

Baldwin was a gay African American writer whose novels including Go Tell it on the Mountain and Giovanni's Room made him a leading thinker on America, sexuality and race from the 1950s onwards.

With new documentaries, films, essays and activists explicitly using Baldwin as a touchstone - what is it about Baldwin's insight and art that has prompted such a resurgence of interest? And how might he help us understand the contemporary moment

Writers including The Good Immigrant's Musa Okwonga, Mitchell S Jackson and the New Yorker's Hilton Als, community organiser Imani Robinson, academic Robert Reid-Pharr and Baldwin biographer and academic Magdalena Zaborowska unpick his work and find moments of personal shared experience.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b095qbpy)
Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881), Musical Portraits and Self-Portraits

This week Donald Macleod explores the music of Mussorgsky, with a particular focus on his songs. Today, Pictures from an Exhibition, in its original piano version, and the song-cycle The Nursery.

In August 1873 the painter and architectural designer Viktor Hartmann, a close friend of Mussorgsky's, suddenly dropped dead from a heart attack. Early the following year an exhibition of around 400 of his images - including watercolours, architectural sketches and costume designs - was mounted in St Petersburg in his honour. As his own memorial to Hartmann, Mussorgsky selected ten of the pictures to illustrate in music, adding five intermezzi in the form of 'promenades', to suggest the composer's own progress through the exhibition. His charming song-cycle The Nursery is a memorial of a different kind - to his own lost childhood, or at least an idealized version of it.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b095qhs6)
Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881), Mlada

This week Donald Macleod explores the music of Mussorgsky, with a particular focus on his songs. Today, music dramas in miniature; and Mlada, a collaboration that unravelled.

Given the modest size of Mussorgsky's output, his influence on subsequent generations of composers is disproportionate; his originality allows him to punch above his weight. This is particularly true in the field of opera - Mussorgsky completed only one, Boris Godunov, but it rewrote the operatic rulebook. His tragic early death doubtless robbed us of several more ground-breaking operatic works, but as Donald observes, "the opera-lover's loss is the song-lover's gain", as Mussorgsky left a substantial and relatively little-known body of individual songs, many of which are built around dramatic scenarios. The dramatic scenario at the heart of Mlada, conceived as a spectacular opera-ballet that was to have been a collaboration between Mussorgsky, Borodin, Cui and Rimsky-Korsakov, was a fantastical one, involving a murdered princess who's eventually reunited with her prince in heaven. There was to be no happy ending for the project, though, which fizzled out due to lack of funds. Mussorgsky contributed four sections, two of them recycled from earlier works and all of them subsequently put to work in new musical contexts.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b095qhsk)
Thomas Trotter at Manchester Cathedral

Tom Redmond presents a concert given by Thomas Trotter to mark the completion of Manchester Cathedral's new organ.

Following bomb damage in 1940, the Cathedral's previous organ was repaired re-using old pipework and, incredibly, held together for another 75 years. This new organ, built by Kenneth Tickell, is designed with a mechanical key action and is mounted on the screen, as pre-war organs were. Thomas Trotter gives the first performance of a major new work on it, written specially for him by Francis Pott: 'La chiesa del sole - in memoriam John Scott'. Dedicated to "the happy memory" of Scott - organist, choir director and Pott's Cambridge contemporary - it's a powerful new addition to a noble tradition. The concert also includes one of the cornerstones of the organ repertoire, Reubke's Sonata on the 94th Psalm. In the form of a dramatic tone-poem for organ based upon the verses of Psalm 94, it's heavily influenced heavily by the Fantasia and Fugue on 'Ad nos, ad salutarem undam' of his composition teacher, Liszt. It ends in a blaze of terrifying and vengeful fervour and is a work of astonishing maturity for a 23-year-old. The programme opens and closes with the 16th-century book of Danserye by Tielman Susato - publisher of Orlande de Lassus and composer of accomplished works that lend themselves to any instrument - and arrangements of Mendelssohn.

Susato arr. Thomas Trotter: Danserye
Francis Pott: La chiesa del sole - in memoriam John Scott

Plus Dido, Queen of Carthage - from Virgil and Christopher Marlowe to Purcell and TS Eliot - classicist Natalie Haynes and theatre director Rebecca McCutcheon discuss the different interpretations.

Kamila Shamsie's novels include Burnt Shadows which links events in Nagasaki and partition in India to Pakistan in the early 1980s, New York post 9/11 and Afghanistan in the wake of a US bombing campaign; and A God in Every Stone moves from the time of Persian Darius I to the experiences of Indian troops fighting the First World War and the independence movement in Peshawar.

John Kasmin's Postcards series published by Trivia Press is themed into collections Meat; Scrub; Elders; Size; and Wreck.

Dido, Queen of Carthage is at the Swan theatre in Stratford with Kimberley Sykes directing for the Royal Shakespeare Company until October 28th 2017.

In a special guest week, Late Junction is taken over by some of Britain's most dedicated record collectors. Opening the batting is electronic musician and producer Kieran Hebden, a.k.a. Four Tet. The spectrum of his work as an artist is wide: part of the first wave of folktronica in the early 2000s, his music has drawn on post-rock, grime, hip hop and improvised music, and collaborators include Laurie Anderson and Thom Yorke. His record library is just as broad - the envy of the collecting community, featuring rare cosmic jazz, new age music, grime and production records.

Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881), Boris

This week Donald Macleod explores the music of Mussorgsky, with a particular focus on his songs. Today, the tortured history of the two operas Mussorgsky called Boris Godunov.

"When an artist revises, it means he is dissatisfied", Mussorgsky once told his friend Rimsky-Korsakov. That's as may be, but Mussorgsky embarked on his revisions to the first version of his opera about the troubled Russian Tsar because it had been rejected by the music committee of the Directorate of the Imperial Theatres in St Petersburg. The committee objected not to the depiction of a Tsar on stage, but - rather bizarrely to our ears - to the "originality and freshness" of the music, and also, and perhaps crucially, to the absence of "an important female role". To beat the ban, evidently Mussorgsky could have got away with adding a single scene for a prima donna, but he seems to have been genuinely galvanized by the opportunity to reconsider his work, and ended up supplying an entirely new act, as well as an additional final scene. The opera was well received on the premiere of this revised version in 1874, but after Mussorgsky's tragically early death only seven years later, Rimsky-Korsakov took it upon himself to produce a new, 'improved' version of the score, and it was in this inauthentic version that audiences were to hear Boris Godunov for many years to come. Only with the David Lloyd-Jones edition of 1975 was the opera again heard in a form close to that in which the composer had conceived it.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b095qqpz)
Modest Mussorgsky (1839-1881), Meditating on History

This week Donald Macleod explores the music of Mussorgsky, with a particular focus on his songs. Today, the operatic masterpiece Mussorgsky left unfinished; and his greatest song-cycle, Sunless.

Like Musical, Opera is a notoriously fluid art-form; new circumstances of performance may well require new musical solutions. Verdi's Don Carlo(s) is a case in point: it exists in four main versions (with a number of further variants), between which any new production has to choose. Mussorgsky had already demonstrated the malleability of the medium in his only completed opera, Boris Godunov, which exists in two substantially different versions, not to mention subsequent editions by Rimsky-Korsakov, Pavel Lamm, Dmitri Shostakovich and Karol Rathaus. There's a problem of a different order in determining the score of Mussorgsky's second major opera, Khovanshchina - The Khovansky Affair: the composer died before he completed it, so a definitive version is, by definition, an impossibility. As with Boris, Rimsky-Korsakov came to the rescue, in effect acting as his friend's musical executor and producing the version in which audiences would encounter the opera for years to come. Then Diaghilev got interested in mounting a production, but he disliked the Rimsky version and asked Stravinsky and Ravel to take a crack at it. Eventually Shostakovich came to the party, and it's his version that's usually performed today. At the other end of Mussorgsky's career, The Marriage, based on a comedy by Gogol, is also incomplete - but this time because Mussorgsky got bored with this rather dry experiment in matching music to the natural rhythms and inflections of speech and abandoned it. Thankfully he completed Sunless, his matchless cycle of six settings of beautiful but deeply melancholic poems by his friend and, for a time, flat-mate, Arseny Golenishchev-Kutuzov. Rarely has such utter hopelessness felt so deeply satisfying.

THU 14:00 Afternoon on 3 (b095qqq2)
Thursday - Opera matinee: Handel's Lucio Cornelio Silla

Georgia Mann presents a concert performance of Handel's opera seria Lucia Cornelio Silla, recorded in Vienna last January at the Resonanzen Festival.
Based on the real life Roman Lucius Cornelius Sulla, the plot concerns his seizing of power from his enemy Mario, and the repercussions when he proclaims himself dictator. The circumstances surrounding the composition of Handel's little-known opera are not clear, but it contains some fabulous music, much of which was later recycled into his opera Amadigi di Gaula. Sonia Prina takes the title role, originally sung by the castrato Valentini. Then more from this week's featured ensemble - the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, for music by Butterworth and Dickinson.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b095zkts)
Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC SSO in Elgar and Tippett

Live from City Halls, Glasgow
Presented by Andrew McGregor

Martyn Brabbins conducts Elgar and Tippett.

Elgar: Sospiri, Op 70
Sea Pictures, Op 37
8.15: Interval
Tippett: Symphony No. 3

Karen Cargill, mezzo-soprano
Rachel Nicholls, soprano
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Martyn Brabbins, conductor

In a restless and angry world, music battles to make itself heard. And then, from amidst the turmoil and strife, a woman's voice breaks through - singing not a hymn to joy, but a heartfelt and sorrowful blues. Michael Tippett had the idea for his Third Symphony while at the Edinburgh International Festival; written during the 'Summer of Love', it's a masterpiece with an urgent message for the 21st century. And it's a wonderfully appropriate counterpart to Elgar's Sea Pictures. Songs of beauty, longing and despair from a composer who was anything but a stiff old Edwardian gent, sung here by the great Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill.


THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b095qqq6)
Landmark: Andrew Marvell's To His Coy Mistress

Poets Michael Symmons Roberts and Helen Mort and academic Stewart Mottram join Matthew Sweet in Hull to discuss the language of love and the politics underpinning Marvell's poem in a special recording for National Poetry Day. Readings are performed by Matt Sutton.

Published posthumously in 1861, the poem has been seen as following traditions of carpe diem love poetry exhorting the female reader to seize the day and respond more quickly to the poet/lover but it has also been argued that the metaphors are ambiguous and the poem can be read as an ironic version of sexual seduction. Many of the phrases and ideas about time in the poem have inspired other authors and been re-used as book titles and lines in films including within A Matter of Life and Death, The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock and the writing of Ursula K Le Guin.

Recorded with an audience at the University of Hull as part of the BBC's festival Contains Strong Language.

Producer: Fiona McLean.

Five Poems I Wish I Had Written, Sylvia Plath's 'Cut'

Don Paterson is an award-winning poet, editor and teacher, but for all his technical ability and the recognition that has been paid to his work Paterson is acutely aware of awe and sometimes envy when he looks at the work of other writers. Here he applies his wit and skills of technical analysis to discussing the five poems he wishes he had written.
Tonight, Sylvia Plath's poem 'Cut'.


THU 23:00 Exposure (b095zktv)
Belfast: Una Monaghan, Katharine Philippa, Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble

Verity Sharp hosts this month's Exposure in Belfast, at the Harty Room in Queen's University, showcasing new and experimental music in various genres, performed by artists based in the locality.
There will be sets by singer-songwriter Katharine Philippa, harpist and sound artist Una Monaghan, and the Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble playing new scores by local composers.
Úna Monaghan is a harper, composer, and sound artist whose recent work has combined traditional music with bronze sculpture, sound art and movement sensors.
Katharine Philippa is a singular and poetic voice as a singer-songwriter, accompanying herself on piano, and her songs are "full of sparse, graceful, elegantly pitched wonder." (Irish Times)
Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble is a virtuoso new music group with cutting-edge repertoire. They will play music by local composers Edward Zatriqi, David McCann and Greg Caffrey.



FRIDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 2017

FRI 00:00 Late Junction (b095zm29)
Jane Weaver's Late Junction Mixtape

Earlier in the year, singer Jane Weaver released Modern Kosmology, her latest psychedelic distillation of obscure and vintage influences. In this Late Junction mixtape she shares a selection of these sounds at first hand.

Born in 1970s' Liverpool, Weaver's solo career has taken off in recent years with releases that reflect an interest in Krautrock, female punk, no-wave, synth pop and psych-folk. She shares others' music through the Bird Records label that she runs and she's an avid collector too: her mixtape reflects this, delving into her extensive vinyl library to present lesser-known female artists from the last 60 years, as well as her recent obsession with Lebanese vocal pieces and Egyptian string orchestra records.

Produced by Alannah Chance for Reduced Listening.

This is Rattle: Birtwistle

Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC Singers in Varèse, Machaut, Byrd and Birtwistle.

8.15: Interval

Byrd: Lamentations
Birtwistle: Pulse Sampler; The Moth Requiem

BBC Singers
Nash Ensemble
Martyn Brabbins, conductor

Ancient and modern meet in an intriguing programme that folds time back across the centuries, juxtaposing Varèse, Machaut, Byrd and Birtwistle.
Simon Rattle has long championed Sir Harrison Birtwistle's music. Now Birtwistle returns the compliment with a personally-curated musical greeting.
In his first concerts with the LSO, Rattle reaffirms his commitment to the powerful, unmistakably personal music of Harrison Birtwistle. Birtwistle's own vocal music - and that of his forebears - forms the heart of this musical tribute from composer to conductor.

Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC Singers in the intimate but atmospheric space of Milton Court, in a work that they co-commissioned: the poignant and profoundly beautiful Moth Requiem of 2012. But Birtwistle layers the concert with memories and echoing voices from across eight centuries - from Machaut to Byrd and Varèse.
