9.30am Building a Library: Caroline Rae on Debussy’s Violin Sonata
Debussy's Sonata for Violin was written in 1917 and was intended as the fourth in a cycle of six sonatas for various instruments. It follows the sonatas that he wrote for cello, for flute and for viola and harp, but turned out to be the last major work that he would complete before cancer prematurely ended his life. The premiere took place on 5th May 1917 with Debussy himself at the piano accompanying the violinist Gaston Poulet. Debussy was profoundly affected by the First World War and his Sonata for Violin begins with an elegiac movement. The final movement, inspired by Hungarian gypsy music, does however bring the sonata to a more optimistic close.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b7dkh9)
Inside Music with Martin Owen

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today the
French horn player Martin Owen marvels at the technical brilliance required to play the natural horn, is chilled by the ability of Bela Bartok to conjure up a spine-tingling soundworld, and reflects on the special intimacy of chamber music making. Martin also hazards a guess at why Janacek wrote a part for a hard-drinking horn player that involved almost no playing at all.

At 2 o'clock Martin plays his Must Listen piece, a movement from a recording of a Mahler symphony that he took part in and that so entranced him, he held up the recording session by forgetting that he was supposed to be playing.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b0b7dlfq)
Britten Gloriana

Gloriana by Benjamin Britten was written for the year long celebrations of Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. As the nation celebrated the glamorous young queen, promising a new age of peace, Britten produced an opera strangely at odds with the time, but always in tune with his own sensibilities.

Britten takes the stormy personal relationship between a mature Elizabeth I and a young attractive Earl of Essex as related in Lytton Strachey's "Elizabeth and Essex: A Tragic History" , and gives us a complex portrait of an older woman, who as Queen and last surviving child of Henry VIII, knows only too well what it takes to run a country, and ultimately what personal sacrifices to make, despite her own emotions, to protect her authority.

Andrew MacGregor and ** guest TBA** make a case for Gloriana as the least regarded of Britten's Operas in this recent performance from the Teatro Real in Madrid.

Anna Caterina Antonacci is Queen Elizabeth and Leonardo Capalbo the Earl of Essex, and Ivor Bolton conducts this performance from an acclaimed new production.

Britten: Gloriana

Leonardo Capalbo ..... Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex (tenor)
Paula Murrihy ..... Frances, Countess of Essex (mezzo-soprano)

Àlex Sanmartí ..... City Crier (baritone)

Teatro Real Chorus & Orchestra
Ivor Bolton (conductor).


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b07y9nlv)
The Mind's Eye

You can never see through someone else's eyes, but can we, by stealth, tap into people's visual imaginations?

The mind's eye is something most of us take for granted - the 'secret cinema' inside our mind, turning sounds into shapes, characters into faces - it sometimes seems like a sixth sense. For those who have it.

Constantly viewing our own personal visuals, we are powerless to control it, and no one else can see it but us.

"A man hitting his head with a bible" or "A tree being chopped down"?
"A row of frogs" or "The bulging eyes of Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange"

Using a series of soundscapes, we hear the visual musings of a range of people: an architect, a school boy, a DJ, an artist amongst them - playing with the way people's own personal experiences influence their mental pictures.

But what about those who have no pictures in their brain?

"In my late 20's I was on a management course doing a relaxation exercise, and they asked us to imagine dawn. And I thought dawn? Well I know it's pink. But I couldn't see it, I couldn't imagine it."
Gill Morgan, doctor

First recognised, but not named in 1880 by Francis Galton, aphantasia, as Professor of Cognitive and Behavioural Neurology Adam Zeman has recently called it, is being explored by neuroscientists around the world. It may affect 2% of the population, and studies have shown that there is a sliding scale of non-imagers.

Some barely notice any difference in their relationship with their own personal history, but for others this may include an inability to recall life events.

"From talking to close friends it became obvious to me that 'the mind's eye' was not a figure of speech, phrases like, 'it takes you back' exist because that's what they do".
Nick Watkins, theoretical physicist

Encouraging Radio 3 listeners to become aware of their own 'secret cinema', 'Between The Ears' trepans into the little grey cells that bring imagination to light - giving a glimpse inside the film-reel unspooling in our brains.

Contributors: Professor Adam Zeman, Doctor Nick Watkins, Dame Gill Morgan, Michael Bywater

The voices of Susan Aldworth, Francesca Vinti, Luca Goodfellow, Emma Kilbey, Ford Hickson, Ian Goodfellow, Danny Webb and readings by John Dougall and Dilly Barlow.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0b7dqmy)
Kim Moore

Kim Moore won the prestigious Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize this year for her first poetry collection, "The Art of Falling", and is still only in her thirties. The judges described her prize-winning collection as "thrilling: language at its most irresistible and essential".
But however thrilling, poets need to make a living, and Kim Moore's day job has been as a trumpet teacher, in Cumbria where she lives. She's also conducted brass bands.

In Private Passions, Kim Moore explores her musical passion for brass, from Handel's Messiah through to Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, taking in the Grimethorpe Colliery Band on the way. She tells Michael Berkeley how she started writing, and about her sequence of poems exploring a dark and abusive relationship. She reflects too on the influence of her father's job as a scaffolder, and how a fear of falling and images of falling haunt her work. And there are some true confessions about what it's like to play the trumpet in a bandstand with one dog and the drunk who slept there the night before.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b7h1x0)
Truck Driver Modulation

Today on The Listening Service Tom gets into gear for the truck driver modulation - crunching from one key to another, and not worrying overly about the musical synchromesh.

There's not too much attention paid to the proper rules of harmony in today's programme, which celebrates the emotional and dramatic impact of the well-placed sudden key change. From Bruckner to Bon Jovi, Mahler to Michael Jackson, and less alliteratively, from Schubert to Bill Withers via Barry Manilow, we may love to hate this technique, but join Tom as he stands up for the key change (like Westlife).

With Dr. Dai Griffiths, Senior Lecturer in Music at Oxford Brookes University, and novelist Elizabeth Day.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b0b7h4tc)
Binary and Beyond, Binary and Beyond 1/2

Emma Smith investigates how depictions of gender in great art of the past might help illuminate today's issues.

1. From Athena on the Parthenon Marbles to contemporary Drag Kings, Emma Smith explores the long history of cross-dressing in the arts - both male-to-female and female-to-male - asking if it might help us understand some of today's issues surrounding gender.

As Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Oxford, Emma Smith has long been fascinated by the original productions of Twelfth Night and As You Like It - dramas in which young male actors played young female characters who dressed and passed as young men.

Now she takes this interest further in a programme that considers the social and erotic impact of cross-dressers from Achilles and Hercules to Enid Blyton's George, Vesta Tilley, Katherine Hepburn, Octavian, Claude Cahun and many more.....

Emma learns how highly "performed" gender is, even in vastly differing societies, but how the arts grant power to audiences to transcend these norms and go "Beyond Binary", whether in the imagination or in real life.

Featuring interviews with mezzo-soprano, Dame Sarah Connolly; award-winning author of "Delusions of Gender" and "Testosterone Rex", Cordelia Fine; Drag Kings,"Pecs"; Trans activist and musician C.N Lester; and scholars Sandra Hebron, David Clark, Alastair Blanshard and Matt Cook, "Binary and Beyond" offers historical and cultural insights into a peculiarly contemporary issue - how casual assumptions about gender colour the lives of girls and boys, women and men, and all those between, in life today.

Producer: Beaty Rubens

For Rights reasons, this programme is only available as a UK Podcast.

JM Barrie's haunting play about a sinister Scottish island and a girl who never grows up. A soldier sits staring into the fire in an empty, dark house while an unsettling and tragic history unfolds before him. Written in the aftermath of the First World War, Barrie's play about loss and the mystery of life is by turns comic, eerie and heartbreaking.

Original music is composed and performed by singer cellist Laura Moody.

SUN 23:30 The Glory of Polyphony (b0b7h4th)
Tallis and Gombert

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 fourth programme, Peter will delve into the lives and works of two very contrasting musicians: Thomas Tallis and Nicolas Gombert

Both composers were forced to meet the demands of the church in the background of an ever-changing political world. The Reformation and Counter-Reformation affected almost their every musical move. In many ways their music is very similar - melodic, emotive and impassioned, but their lives were far from comparable. Gombert travelled through Europe with the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V until he was accused of sexual misconduct and sentenced to hard labour. Tallis spent almost his entire career in the service of four English monarchs, adapting his sacred music and the language in which it was written, every time there was a change on the throne.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08ljpdk)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), From Bohemia to the World

Donald Macleod explores Antonin Dvorak's stratospheric rise to fame in the 1870s.

Long before the famous journey to the New World, the celebrated visits to this country, before even the great shaggy beard...there was once a young composer, obsessed with Wagner, scratching out a meagre living in obscurity in Prague - waiting patiently to snatch his moment as the most outstanding and distinctive musical voice his nation had ever heard. This week, Donald Macleod explores the critical period in the late 1870s when Antonin Dvorak first made his name, drawing musically from no fewer than four of Dvorak's early symphonies, his Piano and Violin Concertos, his much-loved Slavonic Dances, his String Quintet in G, and host of stage and chamber works.

We begin with a critical moment in Dvorak's early life: just as all seemed lost, and his early opera "King and Charcoal Burner" seemed set for the dustbin of history, the composer received a new state award for impoverished composers. It was to utterly transform his life.

New Generation Thinkers, Rehabilitating the Reverend John Trusler

Sophie Coulombeau tells the story of John Trusler, an eccentric Anglican minister who was the quintessential 18th-century entrepreneur. He was a prolific author, an innovative publisher, a would-be inventor, and a 'medical gentleman' of dubious qualifications. Dismissed by many as a conman and scoundrel, today, few have heard of the man but his madcap schemes often succeeded, in different forms, a century or two later. In his efforts we can trace the ancestors of the thesaurus, the self-help book, Comic Sans, professional ghostwriting, the Society of Authors, and electrotherapy. New Generation Thinker Sophie Coulombeau, from Cardiff University, argues that telling his story can help us to reinterpret and rehabilitate the very idea of 'failure'.

Recorded with an audience at the York Festival of Ideas.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08ljsrt)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), Herr Brahms

Donald Macleod explores Dvorak's life-changing relationship with Johannes Brahms, with a complete performance of the String Quintet in G.

Long before the famous journey to the New World, the celebrated visits to this country, before even the great shaggy beard...there was once a young composer, obsessed with Wagner, scratching out a meagre living in obscurity in Prague - waiting patiently to snatch his moment as the most outstanding and distinctive musical voice his nation had ever heard. This week, Donald Macleod explores the critical period in the late 1870s when Antonin Dvorak first made his name, drawing musically from no fewer than four of Dvorak's early symphonies, his Piano and Violin Concertos, his much-loved Slavonic Dances, his String Quintet in G, and host of stage and chamber works.

Though his recent award for "impoverished artists" had bolstered him financially, Dvorak's name was still little known in the mid-1870s. That is, until he came into contact with one of the most powerful and respected figures in European music: Johannes Brahms. Donald Macleod explores their relationship.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b0b7hk2w)
Quatuor Ebene and Martin Frost at Wigmore Hall

'It is enough to give all those people who are not Beethoven the jitters!' wrote Gabriel Fauré to his wife as he began his string quartet in 1923, the year before he died. Stravinsky's Rite of Spring was already a decade old, Schoenberg had embarked on serialism and the composers of Les Six were the toast of fashionable Paris. But Fauré ploughed on in his unique modal style and his quartet in fact owes little to Beethoven, let alone to any of Fauré's contemporaries. Brahms's Clarinet Quintet is another late, great work which finds its composer at the height of his powers, comfortable with himself in old age. By contrast, Beethoven's Quartet in G major, Op.18, No.2 is Beethoven in unbuttoned, richly humorous mood, playful and witty. It's a programme which demands superb musicianship and which has it in abundance with Quatuor Ebène and clarinettist Martin Fröst.

Recorded yesterday at Wigmore Hall and presented by Martin Handley.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0b7hc9d)
New Generation Thinkers, The Forgotten German Princess

The most famous imposter of the seventeenth century - Mary Carleton. John Gallagher, of the University of Leeds, argues that the story of the "German Princess" raises questions about what evidence we believe and the currency of shame.

Her real name was thought to be Mary Moders and she became a media sensation in Restoration London, after her husband's family, greedy for the riches they believed her to be concealing, accused her of bigamy and put her on trial for her life. Her life, and what remains to us of it, forces us to ask hard questions of the sources from her time. Whose word do we trust?

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08ljsrw)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), Bohemian Variations

Donald Macleod explores two completely contrasting, yet pivotal, works - Dvorak's Stabat Mater and Moravian Duets. Plus, a rare gem: his Symphonic Variations.

Long before the famous journey to the New World, the celebrated visits to this country, before even the great shaggy beard...there was once a young composer, obsessed with Wagner, scratching out a meagre living in obscurity in Prague - waiting patiently to snatch his moment as the most outstanding and distinctive musical voice his nation had ever heard. This week, Donald Macleod explores the critical period in the late 1870s when Antonin Dvorak first made his name, drawing musically from no fewer than four of Dvorak's early symphonies, his Piano and Violin Concertos, his much-loved Slavonic Dances, his String Quintet in G, and host of stage and chamber works.

Amidst the growing professional fame of the late 1870s, there was tragedy in Dvorak's family life as he lost the first three of his children to be born. A proud family man and deeply religious soul, Dvorak poured his grief into his much-loved Stabat Mater - a work that would later make his name in Great Britain. Meanwhile, a set of delightful Moravian Duets set tongues wagging in Germany - and won him a Berlin publisher. Could the man from the so-called "backwater" of Bohemia be set for his biggest break?

WED 22:45 The Essay (b0b7hrw4)
New Generation Thinkers, Sarah Scott and the Dream of a Female Utopia

A radical community of women set up in 1760s rural England is explored in an essay from New Generation Thinker Lucy Powell, recorded with an audience at the 2018 York Festival of Ideas.

Sarah Scott's first novel, published in 1750, was a conventional French-style romance, the fitting literary expression of a younger daughter of the lesser gentry. One year later, she had scandalously fled her husband's house, and pooled finances and set up home with her life-long partner, Lady Barbara Montagu. Her fourth novel, Millennium Hall, described in practical detail the communal existence of a group of women who had taken refuge in each other's company and created an all-female utopia in rural England. On Lady Bab's death, in 1765, Scott would attempt to create this radical community in actuality. Lucy Powell will explore the life, work, and far-reaching influence of this extraordinary writer.

Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), Dvorakmania

Donald Macleod explores how the composer's new Slavonic Dances set off "Dvorakmania" in Germany. Plus: a complete performance of his radiant Wind Serenade.

Long before the famous journey to the New World, the celebrated visits to this country, before even the great shaggy beard...there was once a young composer, obsessed with Wagner, scratching out a meagre living in obscurity in Prague - waiting patiently to snatch his moment as the most outstanding and distinctive musical voice his nation had ever heard. This week, Donald Macleod explores the critical period in the late 1870s when Antonin Dvorak first made his name, drawing musically from no fewer than four of Dvorak's early symphonies, his Piano and Violin Concertos, his much-loved Slavonic Dances, his String Quintet in G, and host of stage and chamber works.

On the 15th November 1878, Dvorak's life changed for ever, as a review by the critic Louis Ehlert appeared in Berlin praising the composer as one of the most brilliantly gifted talents in contemporary music. As music lovers scrambled to buy Dvorak's new Slavonic Dances - the big hit of that winter - the Dvorak family were thrilled to be nursing a new baby, their beloved daughter Otilie. Donald Macleod presents complete performances of Dvorak's much-loved Wind Serenade, inspired by Mozart, and his charming Bagatelles for strings and harmonium.

If size matters there can be few pieces more impressive than Arnold Schoenberg's Gurrelieder. Begun as a song cycle in 1900, by the time it had reached its final form in 1911 Gurrelieder had become a gargantuan post-Romantic epic. The vocal forces alone - five soloists, a speaker, three male choruses, mixed choir - call for over 250 performers. Add to that an orchestra including eight flutes, seven clarinets, ten horns, six trumpets, seven trombones, four harps, an extraordinary battery of percussion (how often do you see large iron chains on the concert platform?) and it all tots up to an awesome 400 musicians on stage.

In retelling the Danish myth of King Waldemar and his beloved Tove, Schoenberg's varied soundscape travels from rapturous love songs and nightmarish visions to end with an overwhelming final number as the sun rises in blazing C major.

Esa-Pekka Salonen has long been an ardent advocate of Schoenberg's early masterpiece, so this is promises to be an unmissable event.

Presented by Martin Handley, live from the Royal Festival Hall.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b0b7hvgy)
New Generation Thinkers, John Gower, the Forgotten Medieval Poet

The lawyer turned poet whose response to political upheaval has lessons for our time - explored by New Generation Thinker Seb Falk with an audience at the York Festival of Ideas

The 14th century's most eloquent pessimist, John Gower has forever been overshadowed by his funnier friend Chaucer. Yet his trilingual poetry is truly encyclopaedic, mixing social commentary, romance and even science. Writing 'somewhat of lust, somewhat of lore', Gower's response to political upheaval was to 'shoot my arrows at the world'. Whether you want to be cured of lovesickness or learn the secrets of alchemy, John Gower has something to tell you.

FRIDAY 29 JUNE 2018

FRI 00:00 Late Junction (b0b8g7ky)
Ata Kak's Late Junction Mixtape

An internet legend, Ata Kak's music first came to light via ethnomusicologist Brian Shimkovitz, who found a self-released tape from the mid-90s at a roadside stall in Ghana in 2002. The discovery inspired Shimkovitz to launch his blog Awesome Tapes from Africa, now a highly respected reissue label, writing in his inaugural post: 'You may never hear anything like this elsewhere. No one I know in Ghana listens to this frenetic leftfield rap madness.' After 8 years of searching, Brian tracked Ata down and together they re-released Obaa Sima.

Born Yaw Atta-Owusu in 1960 in Ghana, Ata moved to Germany in 1985 and joined a local reggae band as a drummer, despite never having played any instruments before. He picked it up quickly and soon became their lead vocalist, performing mostly Bob Marley songs that he had loved as a youth.

A few years later, he moved to Toronto and joined a Ghanaian highlife band but soon decided he'd prefer to record his own music. He quit the band and cobbled together a studio in his home, using mostly second-hand equipment. Inspired by a performance by Grandmaster Flash he'd seen on Canadian TV, Ata decided to add lyrics to the beats he had written. Rapping in English didn't feel comfortable so he began writing and practicing rhyming in Twi, the most widely-spoken language in Ghana. Using an Atari and a synthesizer with built-in drum sounds, Ata created Obaa Sima.

Around 50 copies of the album were made and released on tape in 1994. Ata believes approximately 3 copies were sold and the rest were scattered among family and friends in Ghana and Canada, one of which was found by Brian.

He now tours worldwide and has a two day residency at Cafe Oto in London on the 2nd and 3rd of July.

Produced by Katie Callin for Reduced Listening.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08ljss0)
Antonin Dvorak (1841-1904), On the Cusp of Greatness

At the dawn of a new decade - the 1880s - Dvorak stood poised to conquer the musical world. Donald Macleod explores a series of works that made his name from Berlin to Brooklyn.

Long before the famous journey to the New World, the celebrated visits to this country, before even the great shaggy beard...there was once a young composer, obsessed with Wagner, scratching out a meagre living in obscurity in Prague - waiting patiently to snatch his moment as the most outstanding and distinctive musical voice his nation had ever heard. This week, Donald Macleod explores the critical period in the late 1870s when Antonin Dvorak first made his name, drawing musically from no fewer than four of Dvorak's early symphonies, his Piano and Violin Concertos, his much-loved Slavonic Dances, his String Quintet in G, and host of stage and chamber works.

As Dvorak stood on the cusp of worldwide fame, he found himself increasingly in demand from some of the Europe's greatest musical stars. Donald Macleod explores the Czech composer's relationship with conductor Hans Richter and violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim - as both politics, and the odd stray match, threaten to put a halt to the Dvorak juggernaut...

Scottish-born composer Thea Musgrave joins the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with conductor Jac Van Steen, in Glasgow for a special tribute to her life and work.

Thea's own works, Song of the Enchanter and Memento Vitae, pay tribute to Sibelius and Beethoven respectively, and alongside her own music we'll hear pieces by Aaron Copland and Richard Rodney Bennett: a nod to her dual creative life in Britain and America.

At the centre of the concert the orchestra will be joined by Evelyn Glennie and Nicholas Daniel to recreate the solo roles in the 2005 double concerto, Two's Company. And the evening ends with the 1998 masterpiece Phoenix Rising which takes the listener on an emotional journey from violence and desolation to luminous serenity and peace.

New Generation Thinkers, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Women's Rights

170 years ago one woman launched the beginning of the modern women's rights movement in America. New Generation Thinker Joanna Cohen of Queen Mary University of London looks back at her story and what lessons it has for politics now.

In the small town of Seneca Falls in upstate New York, Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote The Declaration of Sentiments, a manifesto that took one of the nation's most revered founding documents, Jefferson's Declaration of Independence, and turned its condemnation of British tyranny into a blistering attack on the tyranny of American men. But why did Stanton choose to rebrand her claim for rights with the power of sentiment?

Recorded with an audience at the York Festival of Ideas.
