Building a Library: Mahler's Symphony No. 7 with Stephen Johnson.

For much of the last century, Mahler's Seventh Symphony was considered a dud, recorded by a handful of die-hard Mahlerians. Even by 1980, distinguished Mahler scholar Deryck Cooke only reflected the consensus when he described it as 'the Cinderella among Mahler's symphonies,' which 'presents an enigmatic, inscrutable face to the world...one which arouses suspicions as to its quality.' If the middle three movements were considered successful, the first and especially the last were beyond hope.

But the symphony is actually full of some of Mahler's greatest music and these days things are very different: any and every self-respecting Mahler conductor has recorded it and the catalogue groans with a huge number of versions.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09tn195)
Music and Language in the South East

Presented by Kate Molleson

In a continuing series about music and language around the British Isles, Kate is in the South East to meet the Kent-based folk singer Chris Wood, and explores how the region's English-speaking Romany communities are exchanging words and songs with European Roma migrants.

Kate also meets the American trumpeter, band leader, composer and educator Wynton Marsalis, who has been in London this month for concerts with his Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

And as the new music organisation CoMA (Contemporary Music for All) celebrates 25 years, we hear the experiences of amateur musicians from the organisation's national network of instrumental and vocal ensembles.

Sarah Walker with music for International Women's Day

Sarah Walker looks forward to International Women's Day this Thursday (March 8th) with music ancient and modern, from Hildegard of Bingen to Roxanna Panufnnik, and featuring performers including Karita Mattila, Penelope Thwaites, Lavinia Meier, and Sylvia McNair. In a wide-ranging collection Sarah covers various styles and periods with pieces both sacred and secular, the former from Hildegard of Bingen, Mozart and Roxanna Panufnik, the latter (bridged by Debussy's Danse Sacrée and Danse Profane for harp and orchestra) including music from Haydn, Franz Lehar and Ernest Tomlinson. Plus keyboard music from J S Bach, Beethoven and Friedrich Gulda.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09tc3vp)
Katherine Grainger

In a special edition to mark International Women's Day next week, Michael Berkeley talks to Britain's most decorated female Olympic athlete, the rower Dame Katherine Grainger.

Katherine won a silver medal in Rio in 2016 - at the age of 40. It was her fifth medal from five consecutive Olympic Games, including a gold in the double sculls at London 2012. On her return from Rio, she was voted the Olympians' Olympian by her fellow Team GB athletes. The holder of six World Champion titles, she has an MBE and a CBE, was made a dame in 2017 New Year's Honours list, and, since last summer, has been the Chair of UK Sport.

On top of her huge sporting achievements, Katherine has a PhD in Criminal Law and is Chancellor of Oxford Brookes University.

Katherine tells Michael how music has helped her to cope with the pressure of competing at the highest level, and how music has been an important part of her life since her Scottish childhood. She chooses a Mozart aria to remind her of her grandparents in Aberdeen, and Rachmaninov for her rowing partner Cath Bishop, who is a talented pianist.

In celebration of International Women's Day, all but one of her choices - which include Elgar, Chopin and Bach - are performed or conducted by female musicians.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b09tc3vr)
Sara Levy's Salon

Looking ahead to International Women's Day, Lucie Skeaping talks to Rebecca Cypess of Rutgers University in New Jersey about music played, collected and commissioned by the Jewish salon hostess Sara Levy (1761-1854), student of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and great-aunt of Felix Mendelssohn. Levy was a remarkable woman and was hugely important in the preservation and perpetuation of the Bach family tradition in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, before Mendelssohn ignited the widespread craze for Bach's music in 1829.

At a time before Jews had legal rights in Prussia, Levy's father received special status as a "court Jew" (ie, financier) to Frederick the Great. Sara and her siblings benefited from his wealth and position, and received the finest musical education available. By 1774 she was studying harpsichord with no less a teacher than Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-1784), eldest son of the great JS Bach). In 1783, when she married Salomon Levy, Friedemann presented her with a song, "Herz, mein Herz sey ruhig" (Heart, my heart, be still) as a gift. Around the time of her marriage, Sara began to host salon gatherings in her home, in which men and women, Jews and Christians, gathered to socialize and to discuss new cultural ideas. However, unlike other salons hosted by women in Enlightenment Berlin, which were centred primarily around literature, Sara's salon was musical. She became a keyboard virtuoso, defying the expectation documented in the many collections of "Damen Sonaten" (Ladies' Sonatas) of the late 18th century that women could play only easy pieces. By the mid-1790s she was performing outside of her salons as well, in concert series and, later, as a concerto soloist at the amateur music society known as the Singing Academy of Berlin.

Sara Levy was also a collector - among the first to take an interest in the preservation and performance of music of previous generations, especially that of J.S. Bach. This was at a period when older music in general was neglected in favour of newer music, and when the music of Johann Sebastian in particular was viewed as old-fashioned and overly difficult to understand. Yet Sara Levy, along with her sisters and her husband, played solos, chamber music, and concertos by Bach and his contemporaries, and their soirées constituted what the composer Johann Friedrich Reichardt called a "Bach cult." Around 1813, Sara donated the majority of her enormous collection of manuscript scores and printed sheet music to the Singing Academy of Berlin. It was there, in 1829, that her great-nephew Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy staged his famous performance of J.S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion - the event that sparked the so-called "Bach revival" of the 19th century.

Sara was also a patron of new music. Some of the keyboard fantasies of W.F. Bach are preserved only in manuscripts associated with Levy and her circle, suggesting that she or her family may have commissioned them, heard the composer play them, and played them themselves. It's thought she may also have commissioned the late quartets of C.P.E. Bach.

There's also a chance to hear two charming - and very contrasting - transcriptions of William Walton.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b09tcdx7)
The French Horn Unwound

The French horn, elemental and atavistic, noble and heroic, has long held a special place in composers' affections. Just think of the horn writing of Bach and Handel, at once earthy and sophisticated, the concertos and chamber music of Mozart, the horns of Beethoven symphonies! Not to mention Schumann's supercharged Konzertstuck for four horns, or the central role the horn plays in Wagner's epic Ring - and in the orchestra of Brahms, Strauss and Mahler. And then there are today's composers...

Tom Service unwinds this 12-foot metal tube to discover its continuous appeal over three centuries with the help of natural horn virtuoso Anneke Scott and self-confessed French horn superfan Oliver Knussen, whose very personal concerto for the instrument was inspired by family and friendship, as well as the great horn writing of the past.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b09tn1hx)
Mothers and Daughters

As we look ahead to International Women's Day, this edition of Words and Music explores mothers and daughters. The readers are real-life mother and daughter Samantha Bond and Molly Hanson. From Shakespeare's domineering Lady Capulet and bewildered Juliet to Austen's neurotic Mrs Bennet and her brood of daughters, the mother and daughter relationship is one fraught with concern and competition but also - often - full of love. From the adoration of Christina Rosetti in her 'Sonnets are full of love' to the tussle over identity in Gillian Clarke's 'Catrin', this is a journey through one of life's most multi-faceted relationships with music by Ives, Dvorak, Laurie Anderson and Richard Strauss,.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09tcdx9)
A Portrait of Val Wilmer

Jazz writer, social historian, acclaimed photographer: over six decades, Val Wilmer has become "a world figure in the history of African-American musical culture". What drives her?

In 1956, Valerie Wilmer - aged 14 - took a snap at London Airport of a grinning Louis Armstrong. Thus began a remarkable career that has brought her close up to almost every significant figure in post-war jazz, blues and R&B.

Her books, articles and photographs delve deep into the minds, lives and politics of jazz's most famous exponents - John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus - as well as countless unrecognised men and women who have shaped African-American culture since the 1950s.

How does she reveal the intimate humanity of her subjects? How, "as a white woman, as an English woman!", has she gained such trust and respect? What makes her "a world figure" in the history of Black music?

Val Wilmer is a woman with remarkable stories to tell. Here, for BBC Radio 3, she brings her encounters and recollections vividly to life... and shares her strong views on racism, feminism, and responsible journalism.

Includes contributions from Margaret Busby (publisher and co-founder of Allison & Busby), Paul Gilroy (writer and academic), Richard Williams (journalist and biographer), Andrew Cyrille (musician and drummer), and Clive Wilmer (poet, and brother of Val).

Poison, intrigue, rebellion, torture, eunuch armies, black magic, political and sexual intrigue: this fast-moving historical epic tells the story of the Empress Zoe. Soft-hearted and politically naive, she nevertheless has the strongest claim to the throne of Constantinople, and lives for several eventful decades at the centre of vicious power struggles for control of the Byzantine Empire. It is a true story, based on contemporary histories of the 11th Century.

Rachel Portman (1960-present), Rachel Portman at Oxford

Donald Macleod in discussion with Rachel Portman explores her studies at Oxford and early career

Donald Macleod this week joins the Oscar winning film composer Rachel Portman in her studio in London, to chat about her life and music for film and the concert platform. Portman was the first female composer to win an Academy Award, an Oscar, and a Primetime Emmy Award for her various film music projects, as well as many other Academy and Golden Globe nominations. In more recent years her music for the film The Duchess has been added to the A-level music syllabus for students to study. Portman also has an interest in ecology and environmental issues. There'll be an opportunity to hear part of her choral symphony The Water Diviner's Tale, a collaboration with Owen Sheers, plus the orchestral work Endangered specially recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the week there will also be music specially recorded by the BBC Singers including Portman's Magnificat, and her Christmas Carol We Were There composed in collaboration with Michael Morpurgo.

In conversation with Donald Macleod, the composer Rachel Portman discusses her early musical influences, and the importance of her mother in encouraging her development in music. Portman was one of the first female students to study at Charterhouse, where she was first introduced to the music of Ravel, a composer she still greatly admires. After Charterhouse, Portman went on to study at Oxford which was both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand she was encouraged to write atonal music, which Portman wasn't interested in at all. But through collaborating with other faculties at the university she began to compose music for projects working alongside fellow students such as Hugh Grant. After university when Portman was in her twenties, she was composing music for film, radio and the concert hall, but this still didn't bring in a regular income, so she supplemented her composing work with a number of other jobs, including waitressing, and also cooking lunches for city directors.

Richard Rodney Bennett: Summer Music; Sinfonietta
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
John Wilson (conductor)

English music features largely in today's Afternoon Concert. To begin, there's the two sides of Edward Elgar: on the one hand his playful overture Cockaigne; on the other his powerful Cello Concerto, a rite-of-passage for many a cellist, today in the capable hands of Leonard Elschenbroich. William Walton's First Symphony caused the composer plenty of problems before he finally arrived at a version with which he was satisfied. Indeed, the first public performance had to be given without the finale. That finale is intact in this afternoon's recording.

Elsewhere, John Wilson conducts music by the versatile Sir Richard Rodney Bennett; there's a rarely heard piano concerto from Dorothy Howell, and a performance given last November in Leeds of Beethoven's Third Symphony, the 'Eroica'.

MON 19:00 In Tune Mixtape (b09tcw12)
Kurt Weill, Weber, Dvorak

Today's Mixtape includes melons as dark as caves- it's another extract from William Walton's Facade! Plus a good wholesome Mozart piano duet, an introduction to the regal Gondoliers of Gilbert and Sullivan, jaunty Americana from Dvorak's string quartet, sprightly clarinet in Weber's quintet, the sounds of Seville from Issac Albeniz and - to finish it off - the original Mack the Knife, courtesy of Kurt Weill and Bryn Terfel. What a mix!

If you'd like to download the In Tune Mixtapes to listen to on the go, they're available on the iPlayer Radio App.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b076b5qg)
Minds at War

How great artists and thinkers responded to the First World War in individual works of art.

Dr Heather Jones of the LSE explores Elizabeth Bowen's novel "The Last September"

In 1922, 26 counties of Ireland seceded from the UK, becoming independent, a final epilogue to the Great War. It is this story that Bowen chronicles in her great novel, The Last September - an elegy for the death of the Anglo-Irish class for whom the First World War and the violence it triggered in Ireland marked the end.

Heather Jones explores how the novel mirrors Bowen's own contested loyalties between Ireland and England and investigates how the central character mirrors Bowen herself.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09tcwyl)
Rachel Portman (1960-present), Rachel Portman at the Oscars

Donald Macleod and Rachel Portman discuss the period when she won an Oscar for the film Emma

Donald Macleod this week joins the Oscar winning film composer Rachel Portman in her studio in London, to chat about her life and music for film and the concert platform. Portman was the first female composer to win an Academy Award, an Oscar, and a Primetime Emmy Award for her various film music projects, as well as many other Academy and Golden Globe nominations. In more recent years her music for the film The Duchess has been added to the A-level music syllabus. Portman also has an interest in ecology and environmental issues. There'll be an opportunity to hear part of her choral symphony The Water Diviner's Tale, a collaboration with Owen Sheers, plus the orchestral work Endangered specially recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the week there will also be music specially recorded by the BBC Singers including Portman's Magnificat, and her Christmas Carol We Were There composed in collaboration with Michael Morpurgo.

In Rachel Portman's studio in London, Donald Macleod joins the composer to chat about her film music projects in the 1990s. This included working with the American puppeteer and film-maker Jim Henson, where for one project they had to find a whistle that made the sound of rubies. Portman also discusses her process in writing for film, from playing freely at the piano without click-track, to providing a short-score with details of instrumentation for an orchestrator. In 1996 Portman worked on the film Emma, which won her an Oscar. Portman recounts her experiences of receiving that award, going to the ceremony, and how it impacted upon her career.

CLASSIX Kempten, Amy Beach and other Women Composers featured at CLASSIX Kempten

Sarah Walker presents highlights from the 12th CLASSIX Kempten.
The 2017 festival was devoted to the performance of chamber music written by women composers; along with the more familiar names like Clara Schumann and Amy Beach, the festival also programmed music by previously virtually unknown women composers of the past two centuries along with some important names from our own times. As the festival's programme declared: "CLASSIX Kempten 2017 does not want to open a feminist debate about the reasons and consequences for the exclusion of female composers from the music business. On the contrary, it is simply a question of illuminating and arousing interest...by performing a range of pieces that can be appreciated for what they are: great creations."

Martyn Brabbins conducted three cornerstones of the repertoire: Debussy's groundbreaking tone poem Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, Tchaikovsky's Pathétique Symphony and an early Mozart Piano Concerto featuring the young Dutch pianist Arthur Jussen, also known from the duo in which he performs with his brother Lucas.

Danny Driver is the soloist in another concerto, by the 19th and 20th century American composer Amy Beach, and percussionist Colin Currie is the soloist in Richard Rodney Bennett's Marimba Concerto. This is a recording made last year in Glasgow by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Richard Goode (piano)
BBC Philharmonic
Ben Gernon (conductor)

Ben Gernon, Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic opens this evening's concert with the UK premiere of Anna Clynes's 'This Midnight Hour', a piece he describes as having "bite and relentless energy". Richard Goode, great American pianist and one of today's leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic piano repertoire joins the orchestra for Mozart's Piano Concerto No 20 (K466), one of only two of his piano concertos written in a minor key with an interestingly Romantic feel as a result. The story goes that the ink was still wet on the orchestra parts as he launched himself into the solo part at the premiere in 1785, a picture entirely plausible given the huge amount of music he was writing at that time. We are invited into the vast world of Mahler's First Symphony after the interval; a work as immediately engaging as any in his catalogue with its array of moods, tunes and dance rhythms as well as Mahler's sheer joy in the glory of orchestral sound.

Minds at War

How great artists and thinkers responded to the First World War in their work.

BBC Correspondent Lyse Doucet, fresh from her experiences in Afghanistan and Syria, introduces novelist Edith Wharton's reportage from wartime France, 'Fighting France, from Dunkerque to Belfort'.

Wharton, best known for 'The Age Of Innocence' and 'The House of Mirth', was granted unique access to the Western front and wrote one of the most evocative and undeservedly neglected accounts of life in France in World War One.

In its pages, penned early in the war, are Wharton's painterly descriptions of the country's overnight transformation from peace to war, her deep love for France and its people, and her accounts of the destruction wrought upon the villages and towns in the path of the German invader.

Producer: Benedict Warren.

Rachel Portman (1960-present), Rachel Portman and The Little Prince

Donald Macleod joins Rachel Portman to chat about writing her opera The Little Prince and working with children

Donald Macleod this week joins the Oscar winning film composer Rachel Portman in her studio in London, to chat about her life and music for film and the concert platform. Portman was the first female composer to win an Academy Award, an Oscar, and a Primetime Emmy Award for her various film music projects, as well as many other Academy and Golden Globe nominations. In more recent years her music for the film The Duchess has been added to the A-level music syllabus for students to study. Portman also has an interest in ecology and environmental issues. There'll be an opportunity to hear part of her choral symphony The Water Diviner's Tale, a collaboration with Owen Sheers, plus the orchestral work Endangered specially recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the week there will also be music specially recorded by the BBC Singers including Portman's Magnificat, and her Christmas Carol We Were There composed in collaboration with Michael Morpurgo.

During the 1990s and into the twenty-first century, composer Rachel Portman was still very busy composing film scores. During this period she wrote one of her own favourite works, The Cider House Rules. Portman received a letter from an American soldier telling her that throughout his time working abroad, he would listen at night to her music from this film, to give him peace of mind. Portman found herself getting pulled more and more into films, working with legendary directors such as Robert Redford, yet she craved for something different and so turned her attention to composing an opera for children. The Little Prince was written to appeal to both adults and children, and it was Philip Glass who recommended Rachel Portman for the project.

The Golden Notebook

How self-revealing and frank should a writer be? Lara Feigel, David Aaronovitch, Melissa Benn and Xiaolu Guo join Matthew Sweet to look at the life of Doris Lessing and her 1962 novel in which she explores difficult love, life, war, politics and dreams.

Inspired by her re-reading of Doris Lessing, Lara Feigel has written a revealing book which is part memoir part biography called "Free Woman: Life, Liberation and Doris Lessing".
Melissa Benn's books include Mother and Child, One of Us and School Wars
David Aaronovitch is the author of Party Animals: My Family and Other Communists and a former winner of the Orwell Prize for Political Journalism.
Xiaolu Guo has written a memoir Once Upon a Time in the East, and novels including UFO in Her Eyes, and Lovers In the Age of Indifference.

Producer: Fiona McLean.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b05zhbgs)
Minds at War

The poet and translator Sasha Dugdale explores the impact of the First War on the great Russian poet, Anna Akhmatova.

Her focus is on the collection, White Flock, published in 1917, but written during the war. In many poems, Akhmatova mentions the war directly, and in others, echoes of loss and war sound, refracted through peculiarly Russian folk imagery.

Sasha focuses on a two-part poem called 'July 1914'. In the first stanza, the turf has been burning for four weeks and the dry summer smells of smoke and fumes. The birds aren't singing and the aspen isn't moving. A one-legged wanderer comes to the house with terrible prophecies and predicts that 'soon there won't be room for all the fresh graves'. In the second part, the juniper's sweet smell rises from the burning wood and the widow's cry sounds. Instead of water and the rain they have prayed for, a warm red wetness floods the trampled fields.

Sasha's powerful Essay includes a new translation of the poem and a poignant account of how some of its motifs are now reappearing in contemporary writing about the war in Ukraine.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b09tgs83)
Verity Sharp

On the eve of the first ever solo Pablo Picasso exhibition at Tate Modern, the painter, sculptor, ceramicist, poet, and playwright is an inspiration for several of Verity's musical choices tonight. Travel with her to 19th century Spain, to pre-war Paris, and to the world of surrealism.

Also featured on the programme are contemporary multi-disciplinary artists playing with aesthetic, abstract, and avant-garde approaches to sound and music-making. These include Ryoko Akama, Yas Clarke, Claire Tolan, and Anna Zaradny.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09th2dh)
Rachel Portman (1960-present), Rachel Portman and The Duchess

Donald Macleod in conversation with Rachel Portman discusses The Duchess which has been included in the A-level music syllabus

Donald Macleod this week joins the Oscar winning film composer Rachel Portman in her studio in London, to chat about her life and music for film and the concert platform. Portman was the first female composer to win an Academy Award, an Oscar, and a Primetime Emmy Award for her various film music projects, as well as many other Academy and Golden Globe nominations. In more recent years her music for the film The Duchess has been added to the A-level music syllabus for students to study. Portman also has an interest in ecology and environmental issues. There'll be an opportunity to hear part of her choral symphony The Water Diviner's Tale, a collaboration with Owen Sheers, plus the orchestral work Endangered specially recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the week there will also be music specially recorded by the BBC Singers including Portman's Magnificat, and her Christmas Carol We Were There composed in collaboration with Michael Morpurgo.

In conversation with Donald Macleod, the composer Rachel Portman reveals how films can take over your life when you work on them. Specifically how a dark and traumatic film may impact upon her, to working on a lighter film such as Chocolat, and how during the process of composing for this film she kept on eating and craving chocolate. Portman also talks about her environmental concerns, and working with the poet Owen Sheers on the ecological music drama The Water Diviner's Tale. In recent years her music for the film The Duchess has been included on the A-level music syllabus, and Portman discusses how she thinks this came about.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b05zhbgn)
Minds at War

Virginia Woolf spent the First World War on the Home front mainly in London. It was an anxious time; she lost several cousins in the conflict, and her brother-in-law Cecil Woolf died at the Front; in 1915 she suffered a mental breakdown.

For Woolf the war had changed everything, and her three novels written soon after it - Jacob's Room (1922), Mrs Dalloway (1925) and To the Lighthouse (1927) - display a marked shift in style. 'There had to be new forms for our new sensations', she wrote in a 1916 essay, and in 1923 went further:
"We are sharply cut off from our predecessors. A shift in the scale - the war, the sudden slip of masses held in position for ages - has shaken the fabric from top to bottom, alienated us from the past and made us perhaps too vividly conscious of the present."

In 1925, Woolf's brilliant novel Mrs Dalloway would amaze readers with its literary techniques and its counterpointing of society hostess Clarissa Dalloway and war veteran Septimus Warren-Smith. Here was a work of fiction in which the principal characters never meet, where the Victorian staples of plot and family relationships are eclipsed by a new emphasis on what the characters think rather than what they do or say.

For Dame Gillian Beer this thronging novel with its cast of war profiteers, war casualties, and passers-by ultimately has a positive message. In Mrs Dalloway Virginia Woolf draws the reader and the novel's characters together: "Whether known or unknown to each other, in a shared humanity," she says, "her work draws us all alongside, across time.".


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b09th2st)

Tonight, hear the results of this historic, improvised musical meeting, as well as a roundtable conversation between participants on the history and future of the female collective.

Also featured on the programme is music from all over the globe made by women working together. Expect to hear: folk supergroup Coven; loose sound art collective Egyptian Females Experimental Music Session; electronic choir GRRRL; traditional Tuareg trio Les filles de Illighadad; jazz band Nérija; hip hop crew Reykjavíkurdætur; and performance art improvisers Sheer Frost Orchestra.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09th5fm)
Rachel Portman (1960-present), Rachel Portman studies Psychotherapy

Donald Macleod chats with Rachel Portman about her training in Psychotherapy and its parallels to writing music for film

Donald Macleod this week joins the Oscar winning film composer Rachel Portman in her studio in London, to chat about her life and music for film and the concert platform. Portman was the first female composer to win an Academy Award, an Oscar, and a Primetime Emmy Award for her various film music projects, as well as many other Academy and Golden Globe nominations. In more recent years her music for the film The Duchess has been added to the A-level music syllabus for students to study. Portman also has an interest in ecology and environmental issues. There'll be an opportunity to hear part of her choral symphony The Water Diviner's Tale, a collaboration with Owen Sheers, plus the orchestral work Endangered specially recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Throughout the week there will also be music specially recorded by the BBC Singers including Portman's Magnificat, and her Christmas Carol We Were There composed in collaboration with Michael Morpurgo.

In 2010 the composer Rachel Portman not only became the first female composer to win a top honour for Film and TV from BMI, but she also received an OBE. Her career as a composer has gone from strength to strength, including composing a programmatic orchestral work entitled Endangered, commissioned by the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, and premiered for the World Environment Day Concert in 2013. In more recent years Portman has been studying psychotherapy, and in conversation with Donald Macleod she discusses its parallels with her work in film: both involve getting to grips with understanding personalities and situations.

Afternoon Concert this week focuses on the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and concludes with a concert they gave at Edinburgh's Usher Hall in December. They were joined by the powerhouse Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin for Tchaikovsky's enduringly popular First Piano Concerto, while the second half of the concert was given over to Shostakovich's giant depiction of the events of the 1905 Russian Revolution: his Symphony No 11.

That's followed by a pair of orchestral depictions of winter by the Scottish composer Helen Grime, her Two Eardley Pictures: 'Catterline in Winter' and 'Snow'.

Then there's a recording made in Leeds last November, in which the Russian virtuoso Ilya Gringolts joined the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra to perform Schumann's Violin Concerto. This was a work, written towards the end of the composer's troubled life, that remained unheard for over 80 years, finally seeing the light of day in the 1930s.

Radio 3 in Concert at Free Thinking

Adam Tomlinson presents Royal Northern Sinfonia with works by Beethoven, Bruch and Mozart as part of this year's Free Thinking Festival, live from Sage Gateshead.

Oh Vienna. The city is writ large over tonight's concert, opening with Beethoven's tempestuous overture-without-incidental-music to Heinrich von Collin's play Coriolan, a hit in the capital at the time. There's Beethovenian tenderness in Bruch's Romance for viola, and the sun rises over the city in the opening to Mozart's last concerto for violin - a cosmopolitan work of warmth, depth and humour. And to close, Mozart again with his 'Linz' symphony, written in the city in just four days for an impromptu concert: "there will be an academy [concert] in the theatre here and, as I have not a single symphony with me, I am writing a new one at breakneck speed."

Beethoven: Coriolan Overture
Mozart: Violin Concerto in A, K219, 'Turkish'

INTERVAL

Bruch: Romance in F, Op 85
Mozart: Symphony No 36, 'Linz'

FRI 22:00 Free Thinking (b09w3x1r)
Festival 2018, Linda Yueh on Globalisation - for the One and the Many

Leading economic expert, Linda Yueh, delivers her vision for restoring faith in the free market to an audience at Sage Gateshead. Chaired by Philip Dodd.

We live in a world where experts of all stripes are struggling to win over the confidence of the general population. Last year, the Bank of England said it was stepping up its efforts to minimise a 'twin deficit' of public understanding and trust in an area that has come under particular fire recently: economics. In a timely defence of her profession, and by drawing on ideas put forward by several titans of economic theory, Linda Yueh, the former Chief Business Correspondent for BBC News, opens the Free Thinking festival 2018 with a unique take on how we fix the globalised free market to benefit the one and the many.

Linda Yueh is Adjunct Professor of Economics at London Business School and Fellow in Economics at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University as well Visiting Senior Fellow at the London School of Economics IDEAS research centre. She is the author of The Great Economists: How Their Ideas Can Help Us Today.

Producer: Craig Templeton Smith.
