SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09cz42w)
Music on the Catalonia crisis; Book on Creative Brain; our musical lives on the internet; and Uri CaineDD

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

In the wake of the political crisis that risks breaking up Spain and Catalonia, Sara asks Barcelona music journalist Andrea Romanos how important music is for the Catalans, and how have they've used it in the recent massive street demonstrations, whether in favour or against the region's independence.

Sara talks to neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt, authors of 'The Runaway Species', a book about creativity in art, music and the brain.

Also, what the internet tells us about our musical lives and how we 'consume' music today; Toner Quinn from 'The Journal of Music' reveals the latest findings.

And an interview at the piano, including a Mozart improvisation, with the American jazz and classical pianist and composer, Uri Caine.


SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b09cz432)
Rachel Podger

In the second of two programmes Rachel Podger, described by The Sunday Times as "Queen of the Baroque violin", shares the music that has helped to define her musical personality - much of it encountered during her childhood years in Kassel. Rachel's choices range from Tallis to Stravinsky via Monteverdi, Mozart, Schubert, Brahms and Vaughan Williams, and not forgetting her beloved Bach, of whose music she says "I don't think a day goes by when I don't play some or listen to some'. She talks engagingly about singing in her father's choir, The William Byrd Singers, where she absorbed Renaissance polyphony "by osmosis"; a memorable school-chamber orchestra trip round Eastern Europe in the declining years of the Ostblock; her love of Glenn Gould's idiosyncratic approach to the performance of Bach's music; her revelatory first encounter with 'authentic' performance practice; and much more.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b09cz436)
Whodunnit?

Matthew Sweet explores the whodunnit genre with a varied line-up of suspicious looking film scores in the week of the release of the new version of Agatha Christie's classic "Murder On The Orient Express".

The original Orient Express boasted a much loved classic score by Richard Rodney Bennett. The new film, with a starry ensemble cast and directed by Kenneth Branagh, has music by Branagh's regular musical collaborator, Patrick Doyle.

The programme also features music from "Death On The Nile"; "Evil Under The Sun"; "Le Grand Alibi" "8 Women"; "Gosford Park"; "The Draughtsman's Contract"; "Sleuth"; "Clue" and "Murder on the Orient Express".

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b09cz43m)
Khovanshchina by Mussorgsky

From the Wales Millennium Centre, a work of political machinations and religious upheaval in Welsh National Opera's production of Modest Mussorgsky's Khovanshchina. Premiered in St Petersburg in 1886, Mussorgsky created both the libretto and music for this opera based on true events from 17th century Russia with a country in turmoil. Here, Prince Ivan Khovansky, with his private army of Streltsy soldiers who defend Moscow, joins with the Old Believers, led by Dosifei, to rebel against modernising reforms being enforced by the Tsar. Ivan's son, Prince Andrei, is consumed by passion for Emma, whilst the reformer Prince Golitsyn becomes tainted by intrigue and is forced to flee. It's a story of both personal and political ambitions, as they clash with both religious and institutional forces. This struggle for power results in grave consequences.

Khovanshchina is in five acts, and Mussorgsky adds into this explosive pot the mythical character of Marfa, who is a fortune-teller with a dissolute past. She is linked to all these characters including being once the lover of Prince Andrei, and she also has a vision of Golitsyn's downfall. This paves the way for the reforming reign of Tsar Peter the Great, as do the acts of the aristocrat Shaklovity, who denounces Prince Ivan Khovansky as a rebel and then later assassinates him. In the face of defeat and persecution, Marfa and Prince Andrei join the Old Believers as they prepare the way for their own self-immolation.

This performance, directed by David Pountney, is sung in Russian and includes Igor Stravinsky's ending. Tomáš Hanus conducts the Welsh National Opera Chorus and Orchestra, who are joined by the soloists Robert Hayward, Adrian Dwyer, Mark Le Brocq, Simon Bailey, Miklós Sebestyén, Sara Fulgoni, Adrian Thompson and Claire Wild. Andrew McGregor presents this opera from the Wales Millennium Centre, and is joined by Anastasia Belina to discuss the social, political and religious overtones present in this unique opera by Mussorgsky.

SAT 22:10 Between the Ears (b09cz43q)
The Clash

A hurley is the name given to the stick used to hit a leather ball - or sliotar - in the ancient Gaelic sport of hurling.

And the time-honoured tradition of the Irish hurley stick maker is where gentle craftsmanship and player's dreams collide.

Neil McManus hurls for Cushendall (Ruairí Óg G.A.A.) and is visiting local craftsman and hurley stick maker, Michael Scullion. Like his father before him, Michael carves only from ash, hand-picking the trees from which they're hewn.

Michael Ennis hurls for Ballycran and has gone to see his local hurley maker, Barry Reynolds. With ash become ever scarcer, Barry uses only modern materials in the sticks he lovingly fashions.

As Neil McManus and Michael Ennis' opposing teams prepare to clash on impeccable playing fields in the village of Cushendall in the Glens of Antrim, we're immersed in a journey from stick to pitch.

But it's not just the hurley sticks that can break in what might just be the fastest - and most ferocious - field sport on earth.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09czx11)
Ronan Bennett

Ronan Bennett is a novelist and screenwriter whose latest drama series on the BBC, "Gunpowder", dramatizes the story of Guy Fawkes from the point of view of the Catholics, who were persecuted in England at the time. All through his substantial body of work Ronan Bennett has explored the roots of violence and terrorism, something he knows about from personal experience, having grown up as a Catholic in Northern Ireland in the 1970s. He was imprisoned twice as a young man, accused of IRA terrorist offences, but was acquitted both times, not before spending a total of almost three years in prison, sometimes in solitary confinement.

After he came out of prison for the second time, Ronan Bennett made the decision to study history at King's College London, and went on to do a PhD on crime and law enforcement in 17th-century England. In Private Passions he talks about how studying history is a way of trying to make sense of his own painful experience. He looks back on his childhood and chooses Berlioz's opera "The Trojans" for his mother; he includes, too, choices for his own children, who have widened his musical tastes, with Chopin and the grime artist Kano. He talks movingly about the death of his wife, the journalist Georgina Henry, and about the music which he listened to as she died - and which then gave him hope.

Musical choices include Thomas Tallis, the Chieftains, Jessye Norman singing from Strauss's "Four Last Songs", and Bon Iver.

Ahead of Radio 3's 'Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture' season, Tom Service unlocks the mysteries of Shostakovich's baffling late masterpiece, his Symphony No. 15. Why does Shostakovich create a nightmarish toy shop soundscape in the opening movement? What compelled him to include musical quotations from Rossini and Wagner? And how does that final movement represent perhaps the greatest act of nihilism in musical history? To answer these questions Tom is joined by this week's Listening Service witness, the music historian David Metzer.

Emigranti - 1917 Revisited

How do Russia's latest cultural émigrés feel about leaving their homeland? In Russia, culture is increasingly on the front line - many writers, theatre directors and academics feel stifled or under attack. Lucy Ash hears from those who have wrestled with the dilemma of whether to leave. For some, working abroad opens up space to think, while for others, the grief of obscurity can be all-encompassing.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, President Putin's most famous opponent, avoids speaking English and spends his days in cyberspace . He is among a long line of opposition figures trying to imagine a different Russia from beyond its borders. We drop anchor in Berlin, described by one poet as the 'stepmother of Russian cities', which, like London, is experiencing a surge of Russian cultural energy not seen since the aftermath of the October Revolution.

The current exodus has an eerie precursor. During the creation of the Soviet Union, Lenin decided to 'cleanse' the state by shipping out undesirable thinkers. The passengers of the so-called Philosophy Steamer faced a bleak choice, between execution or deportation. Nearly a century on, cheap flights and the internet make many highly educated Russians feel like global citizens - and that, as music producer Philipp Gorbachev says, living in a global culture is 'the only way of existence'.
But mixed feelings of rejection at home and homesickness abroad can be a paralysing cocktail.

Including contributions from Boris Akunin, best-selling novelist; Alexander Delphinov, poet; Philipp Gorbachev, music producer; Mikhail Kaluzhsky, playwright; Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Open Russia foundation; Sasha Lapina, art student; Aguille Sembaeva, German-Russian Exchange; and Vadim Zakharov, artist.

Fathers and Sons by Brian Friel

'Fathers and Sons' by Brian Friel, after the novel by Ivan Turgenev. Fathers: Charles Dance, James Fleet. Sons: Edward Bennett, George Blagden.

In Turgenev's prescient 1859 story of generational collision, both young heroes seem, at first, passionate revolutionaries, believing the old Russia should be swept away. But they're unsure what they'd replace it with. This clash of values is dramatic, funny and recognisably up-to-date, with Julia McKenzie as a batty princess, Lisa Dillon a self-searching widow, Gabrielle Lloyd a loving mother and Martin Jarvis as odd-ball Uncle Pavel.
Turgenev's darkly observant human comedy examines a particular period in Russian history which, in this epic production, foregrounds the eventual political struggle. And Friel, with benefit of hindsight, allows a glimpse of the future. Movingly, the play reminds us that it's the eternal values of love, friendship, loyalty and devotion that will, ultimately - hopefully - survive.

Composer of the Week: Soviet Russia (1917-1953), Out of Chaos

How Scriabin and Prokofiev influenced early Soviet music. Donald Macleod talks to Russian music expert Marina Frolova-Walker.

As part of BBC Radio 3's "Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture" season, Composer of the Week unravels the lives and masterpieces of the musicians who shaped musical life from the USSR's inception in 1917 through to its dissolution in 1991. In this first week, Donald Macleod explores a host of composers - from familiar names like Shostakovich and Prokofiev to lesser-known, though no less brilliant, figures like Gavriil Popov and Alexander Mosolov - whose music documents the turbulent and fascinating story of Russia up to Stalin's death in 1953.

Donald is joined by the Russian music expert Marina Frolova-Walker as they explore the tensions, censorship and cultural terror of the 1920s and 30s, followed by the trauma of the Second World War and finally the infamous Zhdanov affair of the late 1940s, which censured some of the USSR's foremost composers.

In this first programme, Donald explore two hugely influential - yet starkly different - composers of the USSR's early years: Alexander Scriabin, who had died in 1915 yet whose music was venerated, and the thrusting young prodigy Sergei Prokofiev.

Presented at the Royal Festival Hall in London by Martin Handley as part of Radio 3's season 'Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture'.

Istvan Vardai (cello)
The Lay Vicars of Westminster Abbey
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Andres Orozco-Estrada (conductor)

Dispatches from a dark century: Shostakovich's powerful First Cello Concerto speaks both in whispers and warnings, in a USSR in which Stalin's death was still all too recent. Rachmaninov, exiled from Russia, celebrates all the colours of a virtuoso orchestra - but still sounds a note of sadness and loss. The link is faith. The ancient chants that echo through Rachmaninoff's music form the emotional core of the music of Pēteris Vasks: a priest's son from Latvia, born under Soviet oppression, whose Dona nobis pacem speaks with a quiet but fierce sincerity.

Concert recorded on 25 October 2017.

Composer of the Week: Soviet Russia (1917-1953), Machines and Mutations: Roslavets and Mosolov

Machines and Mutations: the music of Alexander Mosolov and Nikolai Roslavets. Donald Macleod talsk to Russian music expert Marina Frolova-Walker.

As part of BBC Radio 3's "Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture" season, Composer of The Week unravels the lives and masterpieces of the musicians that shaped musical life from the USSR's inception in 1917 through to its dissolution in 1991. In this first week, Donald Macleod explores a host of composers - from familiar names like Shostakovich and Prokofiev to lesser-known, though no less brilliant, figures like Gavriil Popov and Alexander Mosolov - whose music documents the turbulent and fascinating story of Russia up to Stalin's death in 1953.

Donald is joined by the Russian music expert Marina Frolova-Walker as they explore the tensions, censorship and cultural terror of the 1920s and 30s, followed by the trauma of the Second World War and finally the infamous Zhdanov affair of the late 1940s, which censured some of the USSR's foremost composers.

Today, Donald and Marina tell the story of two composers whose brilliant, daring music fell tragically foul of the authorities: Alexander Mosolov and Nikolai Roslavets.

A century ago this week, Russia was convulsed by the first of two revolutions in a single year. (It's called the February Revolution because Russia still used an old calendar at that time.) To mark the anniversary, this Russian Revolutionaries series from LSO St Luke's in London features four pianists from Russia, Georgia and the Ukraine delving into the riches of Russian piano music composed before, after and even during the momentous year of 1917 - by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Medtner, Prokofiev and Shostakovich. The series begins today with Georgian pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja.


TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b09d053v)
Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture; Live from Lenin's London office

Afternoon Concert becomes "A Century of Russian Culture" - for one afternoon, marking the centenary of the 1917 Russian Revolution.

LIVE from Lenin's office in London, where he edited "Iskra" in 1902-3, in what is now the Marx Memorial Library.

Tom Service hosts a panel of distinguished guests, Dr. Marina Frolova-Walker, Orlando Figes and Victoria Donovan to play and discuss music and culture across the past hundred years in Russia.

From the lead up to 1917, to the explosion of energy swiftly followed by social chaos and civil war, corralled into Socialist Realism in the early 1930s and harnessed to the will of the state, Russian Culture and music in particular illuminate ideas, individual lives and society as a whole against a backdrop of a suspicious and controlling state.

Including the first modern performance (given in Moscow in September) of a piece for choir and orchestra by a hero of Russian Futurism and ardent Bolshevik, Alexander Mosolov, who fell first from favour in the 30s and was then sentenced to hard labour in a Gulag.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b09czkny)
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra: Ortiz, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich

The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Carlos Miguel Prieto perform music from pre- and post-revolutionary Russia and contemporary Mexico.

Sergey Rachmaninov, one of the world's great pianists, was determined to wow the audiences on his first American tour in 1909 and he made sure his Third Piano Concerto played to all his considerable pianistic strengths. Over a century later, it's still regarded as one of the most virtuosic and technically demanding concertos in the repertoire. Boris Giltburg, one of today's leading pianists, takes it on tonight.

A product of mid-century USSR, Shostakovich's Sixth Symphony is an ambiguous work whose journey begins with a stark, gloomy, long slow movement and ends with a trip to the circus.

The concert begins with a UK premiere from conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto's native Mexico: the Suite from Hominem by Gabriela Ortiz, one of her country's leading composers with a rising international reputation.

Recorded last week at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and presented by Tom Redmond as part of Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture - Radio 3's season of programmes marking the centenary of the Russian Revolution,

Landmark - Man with a Movie Camera

"The greatest documentary of all time"? Michael Nyman, Alexei Popogrebsky, Ian Christie and Larushka Ivan-Zadeh join Matthew Sweet to discuss Dziga Vertov's 1929 film, Man with a Movie Camera, which was voted top of a poll conducted by Sight and Sound Magazine.

Vertov's film is a kind of cinematic symphony of urban life in the Soviet Union. It fizzes with ideas and is the embodiment of the notion that cinema can promote revolutionary consciousness. For some its an achievement to set along side the films of Eisenstein. Both could lay claim to being the greatest film maker of their time and their friendship ended in rivalry. Man with a Movie Camera counts amongst its admirers the novelist, Salman Rushdie and the enfant terrible of the French New Wave, Jean-Luc Godard.

Michael Nyman has composed scores for the three major films that the pioneering Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov made in the late 1920s and is now working on an opera about Vertov.
Ian Christie is Professor of Film and Media History at Birkbeck University London. He is co-editor, with Richard Taylor, of The Film Factory: Russian and Soviet Cinema in Documents 1896-1939 and Eisenstein rediscovered.
Larushka Ivan-Zadeh is chief film critic for the Metro newspaper.
Alexei Popogrebsky is a film director and screenwriter whose work includes How I Ended this Summer and Prostye veshchi.
Plus, on the website you can find Salman Rushdie's comments about watching the film.

Composer of the Week: Soviet Russia (1917-1953), Soviet Symphonica: Miaskovsky and Popov

Donald Macleod speaks to Russian music expert Marina Frolova-Walker about two giants of the Soviet symphony: Nikolai Myaskovsky and Gavriil Popov.

As part of BBC Radio 3's "Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture" season, Composer of the Week unravels the lives and masterpieces of the musicians that shaped musical life from the USSR's inception in 1917 through to its dissolution in 1991. In this first week, Donald Macleod explores a host of composers - from familiar names like Shostakovich and Prokofiev to lesser-known, though no less brilliant, figures like Gavriil Popov and Alexander Mosolov - whose music documents the turbulent and fascinating story of Russia up to Stalin's death in 1953.

Today Donald and Marina unravel the legacy of two very different symphonists. First, Nikolai Myaskovsky, once described by Shostakovich as "the Russian Vaughan Williams", whose prodigious output of symphonies (27 in all) blend dark Romanticism with shards of modernism. Then Gavriil Popov, author of only one symphony of real note (he completed six), yet whose first essay in the genre is amongst the most arresting, brilliant and chaotic musical creations of all Russian 20th-century music.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (b09d41r0)
Nick Luscombe with Ivan Zoloto

As part of the BBC season of Russian culture and ideas to mark the centenary of the October Revolution, Ivan Zoloto guests with Nick Luscombe and shares some song suggestions.

Born in Petrozavodsk in northwestern Karelia, 'the punk capital of Russia', Zoloto launched his first record label in high school. He is now onto his third, Full Of Nothing, which he and his partner Anya Kuts started as a way to release music from their band, Love Cult. In February this year he launched New New World Radio, a radical 'post-genre, post-geography' Moscow-based online station.

Following last night's all-Russian playlist on Late Junction, there is plenty more music in that vein, including from Moscow pianist Anton Bagatov, Saint Petersburg rock band Kino, and Novosibirsk composer Eduard Artemyev.

Non-Russian music also comes from experimental violinist Sudan Archives, big band Tokyo Cuban Boys, and fusion supergroup World Peace Trio.

Composer of the Week: Soviet Russia (1917-1953), A Tale of Dmitri and Dmitry: Shostakovich and Kabalevsky

Donald Macleod talks to Marina Frolova-Walker about the "two Dmitri/ys" - Shostakovich and Kabalevsky - and their very different relationships with the state.

As part of BBC Radio 3's "Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture" season, Composer of the Week unravels the lives and masterpieces of the musicians that shaped musical life from the USSR's inception in 1917 through to its dissolution in 1991. In this first week, Donald Macleod explores a host of composers - from familiar names like Shostakovich and Prokofiev to lesser-known, though no less brilliant, figures like Gavriil Popov and Alexander Mosolov - whose music documents the turbulent and fascinating story of Russia up to Stalin's death in 1953.

Donald is joined by the Russian music expert Marina Frolova-Walker as they explore the tensions, censorship and cultural terror of the 1920s and 30s, followed by the trauma of the Second World War and finally the infamous Zhdanov affair of the late 1940s, which censured some of the USSR's foremost composers.

In today's episode, Donald and Marina tell the story of Dmitri Shostakovich's infamous censure by the state in the mid-1930s, at which time he was accused of writing "Muddle Instead of Music", and after which he lived in fear for his life. His story is juxtaposed with that of Dmitry Kabalevsky - a favourite of the state, yet whose music often dazzles with lyricism and imagination.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b09d3s6z)
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, live from Hull City Halls.

Adam Tomlinson presents a concert given live by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor Alexander Shelley, and cellist Leonard Elschenbroich in a fairy-tale programme of Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov at Hull City Halls.

Are you sitting comfortably?... Rimsky-Korsakov's orchestral saga of love, adventure and intrigue in exotic lands, Scheherezade, is a kaleidoscopic tale-within-a-tale. Over 1001 nights, the eponymous princess narrator spins yarns of romance and derring-do - in order to save her neck from a murderous husband convinced of the "duplicity and infidelity of all women." Voyaging across oceans with Sinbad, the work was intended to be "beyond doubt an Oriental narrative of some numerous and varied fairy-tale wonders and not merely four pieces played one after another."

To open the concert, Tchaikovsky's ballet music to the 18th-century tale of the Sleeping Beauty. Based on the Grimm Brother's re-working, it's stuffed to the brim with magical imagery and tunes to match. The suite makes the most of it, with the Waltz and Rose Adagio from Act 1 and the birdsong of the "Bluebird" pas de deux of Act 3.

In between, cellist Leonard Elschenbroich join the orchestra for Tchaikovsky's graceful Variations on a Rococo Theme, the first compositional expression of the composer's love of Mozart and idealised 18th-century poise - perhaps surprising in a composer more readily known for heightened emotional states.

As part of BBC Radio 3's "Breaking Free: A Century of Russian Culture" season, Composer of the Week unravels the lives and masterpieces of the musicians that shaped musical life from the USSR's inception in 1917 through to its dissolution in 1991. In this first week, Donald Macleod explores a host of composers - from familiar names like Shostakovich and Prokofiev to lesser-known, though no less brilliant, figures like Gavriil Popov and Alexander Mosolov - whose music documents the turbulent and fascinating story of Russia up to Stalin's death in 1953.

In the final episode of this week, Donald and Marina discuss the return of the "prodigal son" of Soviet music, Sergei Prokofiev - and the grim reality of his final years in the USSR. As the week builds towards the pivotal events of 1948 - when Prokofiev, Shostakovich and others were officially denounced by the state - they explore the nebulous reputation, and sometime musical brilliance, of Tikhon Khrennikov, the infamous head of the Soviet Composers' Union.
