9.30am Building a Library: Marina Frolova-Walker on Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk
Shostakovich's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk is one of the operatic masterpieces of the twentieth century and was highly praised at its 1934 premiere. Stalin, however, found the opera highly objectional, when he saw it in 1936, and subsequently banned it. In four acts, the opera is based on the startling novella of the same name by the idiosyncratic Russian novelist and short-story writer Nikolai Leskov. Although it departs slightly from its original literary context, it tells the tragic tale of Katerina, a bored and lonely heroine who falls in love with one of her husband's workers, the manipulative Sergey. Their treachery leads to a gruesome series of murders and ultimately to her own devastating end. In grappling with the subordinate role expected of women in 19th century society, adultery and pre-meditated murder, there are echoes in both Leskov and Shostakovich of Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b0b65lxr)
Chicago: Yo-Yo Ma and Riccardo Muti

Tom Service visits Chicago to talk to two major figures at the heart of the city's musical and cultural life: cellist Yo-Yo Ma and conductor Riccardo Muti.

Whether as concert soloist, as founder of Silkroad Ensemble which explores musical traditions across the world, or through his collaborations with communities in Chicago, Yo-Yo Ma has consistently pushed the boundaries of what it means to be a musician, driven by his desire to explore the relationship between culture and the human experience. Although not a Chicagoan, Ma has had a big impact on the city through his performances with Chicago Symphony Orchestra and conductor Riccardo Muti, and his work with the orchestra's outreach department, the Negaunee Music Institute.

Riccardo Muti is famed as a conductor of Verdi and became Music Director at the orchestra in 2010 where he has continued his plight to engage people of all ages and from all backgrounds with classical music. Like Ma, Muti sees music as more than just entertainment - he is focused on making connections through music, both in his work in the schools, communities and prisons of Chicago and on his 'Roads of Friendship' project, collaborating with orchestras and musicians in conflict zones.

Tom talks to both about their musical lives, Chicago and the role music and culture can play in helping our understanding of the world and of each other. And 85 years after the premiere of her first symphony at Chicago Symphony Orchestra, we hear about the inspirational figure of Florence Price - Chicago-based composer and the first black American woman to have a symphony played by a major orchestra. Tom visits the Center for Black Music Research to meet Melanie Zeck and talks to composer and musician Renèe Baker about her work with the Chicago Sinfonietta and The Chicago Modern Orchestra Project, discovering how Florence is just one part of a history that needs to be told and a legacy that needs to be fulfilled.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b65lxt)
Inside Music with Greg Beardsell

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.

Today conductor Greg Beardsell talks about how Carl Orff's masterpiece Carmina Burana might be seen as a warhorse by some, but is a great piece to sharpen singing skills. He also challenges preconceptions about what brass band music sounds like, and is refreshed by a live 1957 recording of Beethoven's 3rd piano concerto in which Glenn Gould and Herbert von Karajan are pulling in very different directions.

At 2 o'clock Greg plays his Must Listen piece, a choral work by a 20th century British composer that Greg suspects might have been "a bit of a hellraiser, a bit of a jazzer" thanks to his daring use of harmony.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b0b65mrf)
Gabriel Yared

Matthew Sweet talks to the Lebanese-born composer Gabriel Yared, who worked closely with director Anthony Minghella on scores for "The English Patient", "The Talented Mr Ripley" and "Cold Mountain", about his career in film music. Gabriel tells Matthew that he began as a law student and then became a music arranger before studying with the French composer Henri Dutilleux, then breaking into film music with his score for "Betty Blue". And he talks about working with Rupert Everett on "The Happy Prince", released in the UK this week, based on the Oscar Wilde story and featuring a new score from Gabriel.

Plus, vocalist Zara MacFarlane shares some of the musical moments which have inspired her through the years.

Produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.

When he enrages his best friend Lensky by flirting with Olga, Lensky challenges him to a duel. Tragedy unfolds as Lensky is killed. A few years later, Onegin, a broken man meets Tatyana again, now married to Prince Gremin and realises that he loves her and begs her to run away with him.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b0b6pj9h)
Omay

In the 1980s a young anthropologist entered the Amazon rainforest to try to find and live amongst a previously uncontacted tribe, known locally as the Outcasts. Feared by neighbouring groups through stories of secretiveness and violence, they were mythologised as spirit people. Laura's only companion on her trip was her nine-year-old daughter Emilia.
Venturing deep into the forest, Laura and Emilia found the group and lived on their fringes for months. But with the Huaorani initially hostile and refusing to engage, Emilia became increasingly ill. Laura faced a life-defining decision: leave the forest with her daughter or send her away and stay alone.
As Laura tells her incredible story, an immersive binaural forest soundscape guides the way. Recorded in the Amazon by multi-award-winning sound designer Gareth Fry and mixed with Laura's taped forest recordings, we join Laura on a surprising journey deep under the forest canopy.

In midsummer week, Radio 3 enters one of the most potent sources of the human imagination. 'Into the Forest' explores the enchantment, escape and magical danger of the forest in summer, with slow radio moments featuring the sounds of the forest, allowing time out from today's often frenetic world.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0b6nw84)
Miranda Krestovnikoff

As part of Radio 3's week in the forest, Michael Berkeley talks to wildlife presenter, President of the RSPB and accomplished musician Miranda Krestovnikoff.

She's dived with sharks, shown viewers how to eat roadkill, and searched for mammoth bones in the North Sea. The co-presenter of ten series of Coast, Miranda's also a regular on The One Show and Radio 4's Costing the Earth. As well as the RSPB she's involved in numerous other environmental and wildlife charities. She tells Michael about staying up all night waiting for pine martens in a Scottish forest, and a frightening experience diving with sharks.

But she's also a talented musician - a flautist, pianist, and singer who plays with the New Bristol Sinfonia and sings in choirs in the city. We hear a recording of Miranda singing a Duruflé motet with the Bristol University Singers and from other composers whose music she has performed - Holst, Vaughan Williams, and Rachmaninoff, whose All Night Vigil was played at her wedding. And we hear a piece that combines her love of music and birds - Martinů's Sonata for Flute and Piano - the piece that inspired her as a young flautist and which also features the song of a nightjar.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b6nx9v)
Igor Stravinsky: Understood Best by Children and Animals

"My music is best understood by children and animals," pronounced Igor Stravinsky, no doubt with a twinkle in his eye. According to his critics (and jealous colleagues), Stravinsky's composing consisted of picking up any old second-hand musical baubles he fancied, like a restless musical magpie - sometimes he even had the effrontery to leave them virtually unchanged. Frustratingly, audiences seemed to lap it up. To make matters worse, when it came to explaining his music, Igor liked nothing better than to hide behind contradictory and gnomic statements, as bewildering and frequent as his changes of musical style.

Neither child nor animal, Tom Service nonetheless attempts to reveal the essence of Stravinsky, at once one of the greatest yet most elusive 20th Century composers. Including contributions from playwright Meredith Oakes and Stravinsky biographer Jonathan Cross.

David Papp (producer).

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b0b6nx9z)
The Summer Forest

Once upon a time, Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough woke up in the summer forest. At first, there were worse places to be lost. She hid inside giant oaks with historians, read Tolkein and Shakespeare with wise women. A kind witch, Moira Hodgkinson, even cast a spell to wish her good luck in her quest to discover the joys and traditions of the summer forest.

But it wasn't all about the mythical Forest of Arden and the English Romantic idyll. Eleanor watched as that got chewed up, trees turned into ships, into fuel for the furnaces of the industrial revolution. So she met legendary fairy tale guru Jack Zipes, and heard his tales from the Black Forest in Germany, travelled back in time to earth's primeval forests with their strange and leafless trees; and still found time to relax with a spot of Japanese forest bathing. Listen to the the summer forest in all its cultural and ecological glory.

Part of Radio 3's Into the Forest season - a week long celebration of the role forests have played in human creativity.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b014fb7x)
A Midsummer Night's Dream

In midsummer week, Radio 3 enters one of the most potent sources of the human imagination. 'Into the Forest' explores the enchantment, escape and magical danger of the forest in summer, with slow radio moments featuring the sounds of the forest, allowing time out from today's often frenetic world. and another chance to hear this summer production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest. The story takes place in Midsummer and is a complex farce featuring Hermia and Lysander, Helena and Demetrius. Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated still further by entering the forest where Oberon King of the fairies and his queen Titania, preside. Puck (or Robin Goodfellow) is a major character who is full of mischief and tricks. Other visitors to the enchanted forest include Bottom, the Weaver and his friends Snug, Snout, Quince and Flute, the amateur dramatists who want to rehearse their terrible but hilarious version of the play Pyramus and Thisbe.

Recorded on location in 22 acres of Sussex woodland, this production has an all-star cast.

SUN 23:30 The Glory of Polyphony (b0b6nxb4)
Lassus and de Victoria

Peter Phillips continues his six-part series celebrating the Glory of Polyphony.

Polyphony (literally, 'many sounds') reached its peak in choral music during the historic Renaissance period. Peter Phillips first discovered its magnificent sound world at the age of 16 and ever since has devoted his life to performing and recording it. He even formed his record label and choir -The Tallis Scholars - to share the music with others. In each programme in this series, Peter will share his knowledge of and passion for Renaissance choral music by exploring the lives and works of two very contrasting composers. He'll showcase their unique styles against the social backdrops of the late 15th to early 17th centuries by telling some of their personal stories and explaining the original purpose of the music. He'll also explore the music's meditative qualities and its power to affect worshippers and audiences past and present.

In this third programme, Peter will delve into the lives and music of two contemporary but contrasting musicians: the Flemish singer and composer Orlando Lassus and the Spanish composer Tomas Luis de Victoria.

Victoria, the committed priest and darling of the Counter-Reformation in Spain wrote music of unparalleled religious intensity, with simple melodic lines and rhythmic variation. Lassus, on the other hand was another Flanders export, thought to have been kidnapped three times as a boy because of his extraordinary singing voice. A Humanist, widely travelled and enormously respected, Lassus' more experimental style included some pretty extreme chromaticism for the time.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b6p4z6)
Carl Maria von Weber (1786 - 1826), 'You will never be a musician!'

Carl Maria von Weber's father wanted a child prodigy like his niece's husband Mozart. But he was unimpressed by his son's attempts at learning the violin and rapped him over the knuckles with the bow, telling him: "Whatever will be made of you Carl, it will never be a musician!"

Donald Macleod traces Weber's childhood in the Weber family of travelling players through to the staging of his first opera in Freiburg aged 14. Then came a near tragic episode when the young composer somehow managed to mistake a bottle of nitric acid for a bottle of wine, which left his voice badly affected for the rest of his life. He eventually got a job at the Court at Württemberg in Stuttgart, but he and his father were arrested there for a scam and were banished from the kingdom.

MON 19:00 In Tune Mixtape (b0b6v631)
Spirits of the Forest

As Radio 3 goes Into the Forest, the In Tune Mixtape evokes the spirit of the forest with 30 minutes of specially curated music interspersed with natural sounds of the forest. Music from the Rainforest people of Northern Congo begins and ends the sequence, with a call to the creatures of the forest, and the complex polyphonic singing of the Spirit Ceremony. Also, Rameau evokes forest birds on the harpsichord, Bold Sir Rylas goes hunting for wild boar, we hear marimbas fashioned from the Colombian Rainforest, Canadian composer Jonas Bonnetta goes walking in the forest, Finnish singers Varttina do some tree-hugging, and Saint-Saens goes cuckoo.

More notes on the music:
1. Forest call of the Mbenjele people of Ibamba village, Northern Congo: recorded in 2012 by Radio 3's Music Planet team
2. Varttina: the song is about fir trees in the forest - one has died, but new ones are growing. Yet the dead fir will not be forgotten - its memory will live on in this song.
3. Carnival of the Animals: the Cuckoo movement, accompanied by some real specimens from the BBC's wonderful Natural History Library
4. Bold Sir Rylas: a jolly hunting expedition for wild boar ends in a brutal murder.
5. Rameau depicts the 'conversation' of nightingales on the harpsichord
6. A song from the forests of Colombia, accompanied by marimbas made from the local wood
7. Jonas Bonnetta is a composer living in a remote cottage in the forests of eastern Ontario.
8. We finally return to the Mbenjele people of the Congo Rainforest. In this ceremony for the Spirits of the Forest, they sing music inspired by the calls of the birds and other animals. It is music totally free from any influences from the west or anywhere else - pretty rare nowadays.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b0b6p5yh)
Forests, Forests of the Imagination

What is it about forests that inspires our imagination? In this series of Essays for our Into the Forest season, Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough takes five woodland walks with writers and artists who find themselves moved by the sounds, textures and smells of the forest.

She's joined first by Fiona Stafford, author of 'The Long, Long Life of Trees' and expert on the Romantic poets. Fiona is fascinated by the moment in the late 18th century when Britain's great forests were swept away by the demands of the Royal Navy and the Enclosure Acts. As the dark forests with their brigands and wild beasts disappeared, novelists and visual artists were free to conjure up their own dappled glades, to create spaces of romantic imagination.

Producer: Alasdair Cross

Producer: Luke Mulhall.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0b6p73h)
Forests, Forest Folk

The folk singer, Nancy Kerr joins Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough for a walk in the woods. Forests play a vital role in folk music, as a refuge for romantic outlaws, as a metaphor for freedom and as a space for sexual couplings, usually with the traditionally tragic ending.

Nancy explains how the early folk song collectors such as Cecil Sharp and Ralph Vaughan Williams found a vibrant folk vocabulary bristling with bushes and briars, stout oaks and wily willows. She understands just how powerfully symbolic trees and forests can be, composing her own songs of the woods and interpreting classic tales of sylvan sensuality.

Producer: Alasdair Cross

Nick Luscombe with Thiago Nassif

Composer and guitarist Thiago Nassif introduces Nick to some wonderfully evocative musical sounds from the rainforest of his native Brazil. Growing up in the countryside around Sau Paulo, Nassif's first exposure to music was listening to the songs of the birds kept by his grandfather. His work has since incorporated and been influenced by a lot of natural sounds.

Also tonight, hear tracks from new age noise artist Lieven Martens Moana, environmental field recordist Jana Winderen, and exotic dance producer Don't DJ.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b0b6p8rj)
Forests, Outlaws of the Forest

Forests are the perfect place for outlaw artists to enact their vision. Just fourteen stops from Soho on the Central Line, Epping Forest provides a particularly convenient place to lose yourself and hide from worldly distractions.

Sculptor, Jacob Epstein used Epping as artistic inspiration and venue for innumerable affairs. But was he lost in the forest or hiding there? John Clare was incarcerated there in an asylum, a place where he lost his status as the peasant poet but found a new identity. First he believed himself to be Lord Byron, latterly he was William Shakespeare. Skip forward a hundred years and the forest continued to intrigue, sheltering the Punk collective, Crass from Big Bang London and providing a surreal playground for theatrical provocateur and forest pixie, Ken Campbell.

For our Into the Forest season Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough is joined on a walk through the artistic hotspots of Epping Forest by Will Ashon, author of 'Strange Labyrinth', a cultural guidebook to the lungs of North-East London.

Producer: Alasdair Cross

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b6pdzb)
Carl Maria von Weber (1786 - 1826), 'An artist's sphere of influence is the world'

Donald Macleod traces the origins of Weber's opera Der Freischütz and, as part of Radio 3's Into the Forest season, discusses how its woodland setting captured the romantic imagination of his audience.

The first performance was witnessed by E T A Hoffmann, the poet Heinrich Heine, and a 12-year-old Felix Mendelssohn. Heine said that the opera became so popular that even the dogs barked tunes from it.

Hector Berlioz eulogised that a score as irreproachable as Freischütz, as constantly interesting from beginning to end . . . Intelligence, imagination, genius shine everywhere with a radiance the force of which might dazzle any but eagle eyes, were it not also for a sensitiveness, inexhaustible as well as restrained, which softens its glare.

The thunderous success of Der Freischütz brought Weber international renown and made him the undisputed composer - par excellence - of German opera.
Mary Shelley saw a production of the opera in London in 1824, which may have influenced her novel Frankenstein, and wrote to a friend: the music is wild but often beautiful, when the magic bullets are cast they fill the stage with all sorts of horrors...all forms of a very fine scene...while every part of the house...is enveloped in darkness...

Opera Matinee: Puccini double bill.

Georgia Mann presents Opera Matinee, consisting of a Puccini double-bill, recorded at the Teatro Monumental, Madrid by the Chorus and Orchestra of Spanish Radio.

Puccini: Le villi

Miguel Angel Gómez Martinez (conductor)

In Le villi, Puccini's first work for the stage, Roberto and Anna are engaged to be married. But Roberto must leave before the ceremony to collect an inheritance, and Anna worries that she will never see him again. Her anxiety is fully justified, as he falls into the hands of Le villi, the fairies.
In Edgar, Puccini's second opera, the hero is torn between the sacred love for the pure-hearted Fidelia and the profane love for the wild and feisty Tigrana. His over-complicated love life leads to tragedy.

Morton Feldman: Structures
Copland: Appalachian Spring Suite

Huw Watkins (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Oliver Knussen (conductor)

The BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Oliver Knussen, at the 2018 Aldeburgh Festival.
Aaron Copland's ballet music for Appalachian Spring is probably his most popular creation. Suffused with tender melodies, Shaker tunes and rhythmic energy, this work by an immigrant originally from Lithuanian captures the radiant pastoral side of the American dream like no other. In contrast, Copland's Music for a Great City, first performed in London, displays Copland's more muscular modernist sounds; sounds that are so admired by tonight's composer-conductor Oliver Knussen. He'll preside over the long-awaited first performance of Philip Cashian's new Piano Concerto, which promises to show off the virtuosity of its soloist, composer-pianist Huw Watkins. Also in the mix, American Morton Feldman's Structures, an intriguing, beautiful essay in sound from 1962.


THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b0b6zq7r)
Oliver Rackham and Wildwood Ideas

Our romantic attachment to the idea of wildwood, the impossibility of ever getting back to some primeval grove, and the possibilities opening up about the health and wellbeing of future forests, are debated by Rana Mitter with ecologist and conservationist, Keith Kirby, who knew and worked with the late Oliver Rackham (1939-2015), botanist Fraser Mitchell whose work with pollen is helping to uncover the deep history of trees and environmental archaeologist, Suzi Richer, who is assembling oral histories of woodcraftship and exploring different ways we have imagined the forest. Also celebrating the habitat where many good trees went to die, Donald Murray, author and poet, who grew up on the Hebridean moorland of Lewis, celebrates peat bogs, for themselves and their place in human cultures around the world.

Guests: Keith Kirby, Plant Ecology Research Group, University of Oxford
Fraser Mitchell, Trinity Centre for the Environment, Trinity College, Dublin
Suzi Richer, Environmental Archaelogist from the University of York
Donald Murray his book The Dark Stuff: Stories from the Peatlands is out now

Producer: Jacqueline Smith

In midsummer week, Radio 3 enters one of the most potent sources of the human imagination. 'Into the Forest' explores the enchantment, escape and magical danger of the forest in summer, with slow radio moments featuring the sounds of the forest, allowing time out from today's often frenetic world.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b0b6pfbw)
Forests, Scents of the Forest

As he enters a woodland, perfumer, Roja Dove can be overwhelmed. This legendary nose of the perfume industry can identify 800 different scents blindfolded. Place him in a forest and he can sense narratives of sex, birth, decay and death.

Roja joins Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough for a walk in the woods to discuss how the base notes of the forest scent inspire him. The foundation of damp moss and rotting wood is warm and comforting, but a change in the breeze can bring fresh inspiration to excite the senses, just the kind of effect Roja looks for when he formulates a new perfume.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (b0b6pfby)
Into the Forest: collaboration session

As part of the Into the Forest week on BBC Radio 3, Late Junction brings artists together in the studio to create a radical forest of the imagination. Specially commissioned texts from poet and cultural geographer Amy Cutler explore the woodland ecosystem as an entanglement of lives, and are a springboard for spontaneous creation and foraging. Joining her in the studio at BBC's Maida Vale are string trio Barrel, whose improvisations call on disruption and riotous humour as well as a grounding in the classical tradition; and Lee Patterson with his array of amplified invented instruments, and field recordings of creaking trees and burning branches.

Plus, more new forest-themed music from singer and kannel-player Mari Kalkun, whose album 'Ilmamõtsan' (In the Wood of the World) was written in the wooded hills of southern Estonia.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.

Carl Maria von Weber (1786 - 1826), 'I am going to London to die'

Donald Macleod traces Weber to London for the premiere of his opera Oberon at Covent Garden. But exhaustion from travelling and the stress of the new production combined with the pollution in London, caused Weber's health to deteriorate and he died aged 39.

In 1844, 18 years after Weber's death, Richard Wagner oversaw the transfer of Weber's coffin from London to its final resting place in Dresden. Year later he recalled: "In my youth, I had learned to love music by way of my admiration of Weber's genius; and the news of his death came as a terrible blow to me. To have come in contact with him again, so to speak, and after so many years by this second funeral, was an event that stirred me to the very depths of my being."

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b0b6phmp)
Forests, Forest Fire

Forests are a potent source of inspiration for artists, writers and composers but the truly creative force in the forest is fire. Andrew C Scott from Royal Holloway, University of London is the author of 'Burning Planet'. He stands in awe of the power of fire to reshape our forests and the ability of nature to bounce back, offering fresh space for new plants and animals to colonise.

Andrew takes Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough for a walk through Swinley Woods in Berkshire, site of a spectacular fire in 2011 that, for one terrible day, threatened Windsor Castle and thousands of homes.
