Building a Library: Widor's Organ Symphony no 5 with Andrew Mellor

Charles-Marie Widor composed the Symphony for Organ No. 5 in F minor in 1879. It's fifth movement, known as Widor's Toccata is one of the most famous pieces for organ, a favourite choice of recessional music at wedding ceremonies. Following Widor's example, this style of toccata became a very popular movement type in French Romantic organ music. The rest of this organ symphony is well worth hearing as well.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09yn358)
Eva-Maria Westbroek, Philip Venables, Opening of Queen Elizabeth Hall, Music and Wellbeing

With Tom Service

Philip Venables is one of the most exciting and confrontational composers working today, and with the help of the London Sinfonietta his new project The Gender Agenda is turning London's Queen Elizabeth Hall into a giant irreverant gameshow exploring the idea of gender (in)equality. Tom talks to him about the project and how and why he uses music as a political mouthpiece.

Since its opening in 1967 the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London's Southbank has seen any number of superstars from the worlds of classical, jazz, pop and folk play on its stage. Re-opening its doors to the public this week, Tom takes a tour to see what's in store for the audience and also discovers the secrets behind the famously iconic, and slightly marmite, brutalist concrete architecture.

Tom also talks to the soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek. Now an internationally acclaimed singer performing in the world's biggest opera houses, she tells Tom how she started her career as a singing waitress and had to fight to reach the top of her profession. Performing this month in Shostakovich's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk at the Royal Opera House she also tells Tom why she doesn't want to sing Brunnhilde, she never listens to her recordings, and why her back up career was as a truck driver.

And as a new book 'Mindfulness in Music' asks us to listen to music in a more thoughtful way as a route to wellbeing, Tom talks to its author Mark Tanner and also discovers from music health professionals how music can aid our wellbeing in a very practical sense too with the latest thoughts on music's power to heal, including why music is increasingly being harnessed by the NHS.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b09ygv22)
Inside Music with Colin Currie

A new series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today world-renowned percussionist Colin Currie talks about his admiration for horn players, what it's like being caught up in a performance of a piece for two marimbas, and how Jean Sibelius can make a waltz sound bittersweet. Colin's choice of music includes variations on an ancient tune played with improvisatory panache by Jordi Savall, Mozart's powerful Requiem, a dramatic work for four hands at one piano by Schubert, and Steve Martland's outrageous 'Horses of Instruction'.

At 2 o'clock Colin reveals his Must Listen piece. It's music he describes as 'thrilling, engaging and strange' - and he wants everyone to hear it at least once in their life.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Dance (b09ygv24)
Bernstein at the Ballet

Katie Derham looks at the music of Bernstein and explores just why it's so well suited to dance. And ahead of the Royal Ballet's Bernstein centenary celebrations, Katie talks to choreographer Wayne McGregor as he prepares a new ballet to Bernstein's Chichester Psalms. They discuss the creative process, and why even a choral setting of psalms is inviting to a choreographer if the music is by Bernstein.

From the music specifically written for dance, such as West Side Story and Fancy Free with their iconic Jerome Robbins choreography, to the symphonies and choral works, Bernstein's music lends itself to dance. As Robbins himself said, "There was a power in the rhythms of his work which had a need for it to be demonstrated by dance".


SAT 16:00 Jazz Record Requests (b09ygv26)

Among this week's selection of music from all styles and periods of jazz requested by listeners, Alyn Shipton includes music by the French pianist Michel Petrucciani.


SAT 17:00 J to Z (b09ygv28)
Sons of Kemet in session

A new programme featuring the best in jazz - past, present and future. Jumoké Fashola presents UK band of the moment Sons of Kemet are in session. Led by award-winning saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, the band features two drummers and tuba to create a unique sound influenced by London's dancefloors.

Produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.

Olga Peretyatko-Mariotti stars as Lucia, with Massimo Cavalletti as her determined brother Enrico, and Vittorio Grigolo as her doomed lover Edgardo. Roberto Abbado conducts this chilling production by Tony Award-winning director Mary Zimmerman.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09ygx25)
Phyllida Barlow

The artist Phyllida Barlow shares her passion for music that reflects her sculpture, in its defiance of convention and delight in surprise.

For years Phyllida Barlow was so desperate for people to see her sculptures that she would leave them on the street or in disused factories; or she would install them in friends' houses, using pianos and ironing boards as plinths.

Initially overlooked by museums and galleries, she was in her sixties when she found widespread recognition - in the last decade she's been invited to exhibit all over the world, and has became a Royal Academician, a CBE, and the recipient of numerous awards. Her 2014 exhibition at Tate Britain was unforgettable - she filled the cavernous Duveen Galleries with huge, gravity-defying pieces made out of timber and scrap materials which appeared to be about to topple over or to be on the point of collapse. And in 2017 she received the ultimate accolade of representing Great Britain at the Venice Biennale.

She talks to Michael Berkeley about finding success in later life, how she juggled life as a teacher, artist and mother of five, and the challenges of constructing monumental installations. She chooses music by Birtwistle, Wagner, Janacek, Webern, and Messiaen, pieces which reflect her fascination with size, scale, texture and unexpected beauty.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09yh007)
Too Many Artists?

Can there be too many artists in the world?

They are hardly a danger; they're not armed or forcing people to think a certain way.

But Paul Morley, critic, writer and worrier, believes that there might be too many - like it's now just another career option, a way of turning a hobby into a profession, of filling free time.

Being an artist was once seen as something exotic and rare, requiring a very specific set of near miraculous skills: images were rationed and access controlled; artists patronised by kings and popes. A few images became iconic and artists historic, their names handed down reverentially.

Today, there are painting shows on television in the spirit of 'The Great British Bake Off', and a growing number of people who think they have a right to be called an artist simply because they say they are one.

What actually makes an artist? Are they supposed to make a living at it? Be any good at it? Or do they just decide they are one and hope that others agree and buy something from them.

Morley loves talking to artists: like fantastically disobedient sculptor Bruce McLean - who helpfully denies being one; Eileen Cooper - painter and first female Keeper of the Royal Academy; and political artist Bob and Roberta Smith, who already thinks there is a cull of artists going on, in schools across the country.

He meets Millennial artists: like Hamish Pearce, Matilda Moors and Daniel Burley, who study at the Royal Academy, and their tutor, artist Mark Hampson. He admires students of St Martins College of Art bouncing on trampolines in animal costumes, and enters the virtual studio of Modigliani at Tate Modern.

In the market place buzz of the London Art Fair, gallerists Cynthia Corbett, Hobby Limon and Steve Swallow give advice on how to spot a real artist, while
online content producer Ella Toal-Gangar, explains how Big Brands are desperate to exploit artists - and vice versa.

Sacha Craddock, Chair of the judging panel for The New Contemporaries, explains their rules of most democratic art selection, while Michal Szczęsny, of Art Finder, a website not unlike a dating app linking artists and art buyers online, offers self-curation.

But at the heart of the programme lies Joan Bakewell - presenter of "Portrait Painter of the Year", and who once interviewed Marcel Duchamp. Having challenged Duchamp's declaration that art was dead, she offers our worried critic the suggestion that artists are, in the face of an anxious world, beacons of serenity.

It's going to be a bumpy ride.

SUN 23:30 Unclassified (b09yh00f)
Episode 1

Elizabeth Alker takes listeners on a sonic exploration into unchartered musical territory, delving further into an emerging scene of composers and performers who feel at home in both a traditional concert hall and a grimy basement venue.

These artists are unburdened by tradition and genre and they're meeting the demands of a growing international audience who have eclectic tastes and open minds. Join Elizabeth as she follows musicians such as Gabriel Prokofiev, Johann Johannsson, Flying Lotus, Bonobo, Nils Frahm and Christina Vantzou from electronic dance clubs onto windswept Nordic landscapes, into the world of art house cinema and on stage in some of the world's most reputable concert halls.

Disconnect from all devices and escape into soothing ambient soundscapes, rewire your brain for gorgeous electronic experimentation and let surprising collaborations transport you into as yet undiscovered sound worlds. We're hoping to get completely lost. This is music by composers who are rewriting the rules and changing the way we think about contemporary and traditional forms of music.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09yh2j2)
Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706), Beyond The Canon

Donald Macleod unravels the rich musical legacy of a composer known almost exclusively for one iconic work: the "Canon in D".

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was one of the most exceptional musical minds of his generation - a composer of brilliant choral and keyboard music and a huge influence on JS Bach. Yet more than three centuries on, his reputation rests almost exclusively on one piece - his "Canon in D", one of the most famous pieces of classical music of own our age. This week, Donald Macleod delves deep into his world, exploring a raft of brilliant vocal and instrumental works and putting to bed the myth of the "one-hit wonder". We also look more closely at the iconic Canon - in a variety of fascinating, sometimes surprising arrangements.

Donald begins the week with music that clearly shows why Pachelbel was so venerated by JS Bach and his peers - with joyful, singing vocal lines and highly-crafted harmonies.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09yh3tx)
Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706), The Meister of Erfurt

Donald Macleod unravels the rich musical legacy of a composer known almost exclusively for one iconic work: the "Canon in D". Today - the composer's colourful life in Erfurt.

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was one of the most exceptional musical minds of his generation - a composer of brilliant choral and keyboard music and a huge influence on JS Bach. Yet more than three centuries on, his reputation rests almost exclusively on one piece - his "Canon in D", one of the most famous pieces of classical music of our own age. This week, Donald Macleod delves deep into his world; exploring a raft of brilliant vocal and instrumental works and putting to bed the myth of the "one-hit wonder". We also look more closely at the iconic Canon - in a variety of fascinating, sometimes surprising arrangements.

In today's episode we track the young Pachelbel to Erfurt, where Martin Luther once studied. Alongside a brilliant setting of the Magnificat, Donald tells the curious story of how a 20th-century Frenchman with a knack for marketing turned the Canon into the popular hit we know today...

Donald Macleod unravels the rich musical legacy of a composer known almost exclusively for one iconic work: the "Canon in D". Today - the story of a period of deep grief for the composer...and Pachelbel's curious link to both dance music and hip-hop..

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was one of the most exceptional musical minds of his generation - a composer of brilliant choral and keyboard music and a huge influence on JS Bach. Yet more than three centuries on, his reputation rests almost exclusively on one piece - his "Canon in D", one of the most famous pieces of classical music of our own age.

In today's episode Donald Macleod explores how the composer expressed in music his deep grief at the loss of his first wife and infant son in his unique collection "Musical Thoughts On Death". Plus, as he continues his journey through the diverse arrangements of the famous Canon - there's a curious connection to the world of 1990s "Madchester" dance music, and American West Coast hip-hop...

The London Philharmonic Orchestra perform works by Adès, Barry and Stravinsky

Composer Thomas Adès is fast becoming known as a conductor to be reckoned with, not only in his own music but also in a wide range of repertoire. This not-to-be missed concert begins with the suite from Powder her Face, the darkly comic opera which in 1995 helped established Adès as one of the UK's leading composers.

'I've never had any luck with sacristans,' says Gerald Barry, whose youthful organ playing antagonised congregations and clergy alike. Barry's new concerto, played by virtuoso Thomas Trotter on the spectacular instrument of the Royal Festival Hall, partly draws on memories of his Irish childhood. But don't expect at pastoral idyll. Barry was also inspired by a picture of a cat to put the 'fight for atonality against tonality into the concerto' which ends with organ and orchestra (including 21 metronomes) joining in the hymn, Humiliated and Insulted.

The concert finishes with a rare performance of Perséphone, Strarvinsky's restrained and austere 1930s retelling of the Greek myth of Persephone whose descent to the Underworld to become the wife of Pluto plunges the world into winter and whose return to the living brings spring.

Martin Handley presents, live from the Royal Festival Hall.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09yh82r)
Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706), The Prodigal Son

Donald Macleod unravels the rich musical legacy of a composer known almost exclusively for one iconic work: the "Canon in D". Today - after a peripatetic life in Stuttgart and Gotha, Pachelbel finally comes home to Nuremberg.

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was one of the most exceptional musical minds of his generation - a composer of brilliant choral and keyboard music and a huge influence on JS Bach. Yet more than three centuries on, his reputation rests almost exclusively on one piece - his "Canon in D", one of the most famous pieces of classical music of our own age. This week, Donald Macleod delves deep into his world; exploring a raft of brilliant vocal and instrumental works and putting to bed the myth of the "one-hit wonder". We also look more closely at the iconic Canon - in a variety of fascinating, sometimes surprising arrangements.

A selection of brilliant secular songs take us to Nuremberg - and Pachelbel's dream job, back home at the console of the organ at St Sebaldus's Church.

Thursday - Vaughan Williams' The Poisoned Kiss

Celebrating the 90th Anniversary of the BBC NOW, Kate Molleson marks their relationship with the acclaimed conductor of British Music, Richard Hickox, and this performance recorded at the Bragwyn Hall in Swansea of Vaughan Williams' The Poisoned Kiss.

In a reworking by the librettist Evelyn Sharp of Richard Garnett's short story, The Poison Maid, Richard Hickox conducts Vaughan Williams' operatic setting of the tale of a magician and young empress whose desire to marry is outlawed by her parents. The protagonists marry others, but the jilted magician's instinct for revenge remains and is bestowed upon his daughter, with whom the empress's son is destined to fall in love. With sorcery, poisoned kisses, and the clever use of antidotes, their widowed parents' long-running differences are reconciled, everybody is married, and all live happily ever after.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b09ysypm)

You can't always get what you want..

Diaghilev had wanted another ballet from Ravel - instead he composed La Valse, which Diaghilev called a master piece, but not a ballet.
Beethoven wanted a pianist to perform his just finished 4th piano concerto. No one came forward, and Beethoven had to play his most personal and poetic concerto himself. Scottish pianist Steven Osborne plays the music that asks as many questions as it answers.
In the second half, unrequited desire was the muse for this most spectacular of concert works - the sensational, opium-fueled spectacular that is Hector Berlioz's 'Symphonie Fantastique'.
The conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier will bring plenty of French flair to this concert conducting the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra live from City Halls in Glasgow.

Marilynne Robinson is the author of novels including Gilead, Lila, Home and her new collection of Essays is called What Are We Doing Here ?


THU 22:45 The Essay (b09yh835)
One Bar Electric Memoir, One Bar Electric Memoir - 4

Harland Miller is an artist whose word-play and dexterous brushwork have won him acclaim. He recalls how past decades have informed his work:

4. After New York's 'Prisunic years', the city to be in is Berlin because Harland revers German Expressionism and David Bowie went there. As usual it's a struggle to find anywhere to live, though he ends up in some memorable places. And, incidentally, what's the relevance of George Formby at this time?

Producer Duncan Minshull.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b09yh837)
Nick Luscombe with a Jim O'Rourke mixtape

The latest Late Junction mixtape is compiled by the great Jim O'Rourke, a former member of Sonic Youth whose huge discography also includes: solo albums of avant-rock, electronica, and free improvisation; music for Merce Cunningham's dance company; experimental film soundtrack work; and production duties for artists such as Joanna Newsom, Stereolab, and Wilco. Long associated with the Chicago experimental scene, he currently resides in Japan. O'Rourke has a famously, exhaustively wide knowledge of music across genres. Tonight his selection concentrates on his favourite composers, including Luc Ferrari, George Friedrich Haas, and Daniel Lentz.

Nick also celebrates 10 years of the psych-rock record label Fruits De Mer and there's music from the Indian electronic artist Disco Puppet.

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706), Magnificat

Donald Macleod unravels the rich musical legacy of a composer known almost exclusively for one iconic work: the "Canon in D". Ending the week, a brilliant Magnificat setting, and a final, unique take on the Canon from a Japanese jazz iconoclast.

Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706) was one of the most exceptional musical minds of his generation - a composer of brilliant choral and keyboard music and a huge influence on JS Bach. Yet more than three centuries on, his reputation rests almost exclusively on one piece - his "Canon in D", one of the most famous pieces of classical music of our own age. This week, Donald Macleod delves deep into his world; exploring a raft of brilliant vocal and instrumental works and putting to bed the myth of the "one-hit wonder". We also look more closely at the iconic Canon - in a variety of fascinating, sometimes surprising arrangements.

As he completes his journey through the life and work of this neglected genius of the early Baroque, Donald Macleod wonders why his music - the Canon aside - faded, and introduces a Magnificat setting that demonstrates how foolish posterity has been. We end with a final, brilliant take on the Canon in D by Japanese jazz iconoclast Hiromi.

Sir Andrew Davis (conductor)

The First World War looms large over tonight's concert with two Elgar works of the time performed by famed Elgarians the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus with conductor Sir Andrew Davis.

When Elgar was asked early in the War to write music for a Homefront theatre adaptation of Algernon Blackwood's curious escapist novel A Prisoner in Fairyland he delivered a work of never-never land enchantment - The Starlight Express. Baritone Roderick Williams and soprano Emma Tring join the BBC SO.

Baritone Roderick Williams's second appearance tonight is for The World Was Once All Miracle by the composer Raymond Yiu. Premiered last year to great acclaim, the work sets texts by a hero of Yiu's, the writer and sometime composer Anthony Burgess - who was born in 1917.

Lilian Elkington's Out of the Mist (1921) is a recently discovered war treasure. It paints a picture of Dover on 10th November 1920 as HMS Verdun, with a flotilla of battleships, appears through the Channel fog bringing the body of the Unknown Warrior on its way to final rest in Westminster Abbey.

Elgar's noble choral masterpiece The Spirit of England memorialises the fallen setting texts by Laurence Binyon , including the lines 'They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old'. Andrew Staples is the tenor soloist.

5. The mid 1990s and he's back in New York, staying at the Chelsea Hotel. There has been some success with a show called YOU DIG THE TUNNEL - I'LL HIDE THE SOIL. But the old anxieties over money and accommodation linger on. And also heart-break over a woman called Celeste. Then a mysterious encounter changes everything..
