For nearly two decades, the Radio 3 New Generation Artists Scheme has nurtured the talents of some of the world's finest instrumentalists, chamber ensembles and singers at the outset of their international careers. Each year, six or seven young musicians are offered a two year platform on which to develop their solo and chamber music careers. This includes studio recordings, engagements with the BBC Orchestras and a raft of engagements at some of the UK's leading Festivals including the BBC Proms, Bath, Cheltenham and Edinburgh Festivals among many others.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0bd723p)
Inside Music with Angela Hewitt

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today pianist Angela Hewitt explores how keyboard players can learn how to phrase the music of J.S. Bach by listening to the way that singers do it, and explains why the famous Adagietto from Mahler's 5th Symphony should never turn into a dirge.

She also showcases two contrasting pieces by fellow Canadian musicians, and thrills to the verbal and musical skills of Noel Coward.

At 2 o'clock Angela's Must Listen piece is a passionate and poignant work in a detailed recording by conductor Arturo Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.

William Conway conducts the Hebrides Ensemble in this tale of a young man who sells his soul (and his violin) to the Devil in exchange for untold wealth - or so it seems.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0bd7ls8)
Lauren Child

Michael Berkeley's guest is the best-selling author, illustrator, and Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato; I Am Too Absolutely Small for School; I Am Not Sleepy and Will Not Go to Bed - these are just three of Lauren Child's bestselling, funny and touching picture books for young children. Her big-eyed characters such as Charlie and Lola, and Hubert Horatio Bartle Bobton-Trent, capture the way children negotiate the small but significant challenges of family life, school and growing up. And they're illustrated with Lauren's trademark collages of her drawings and paintings, magazine cuttings, fabrics and photographs.

But she writes for older children too - novels featuring the feisty Clarice Bean and, most recently, Ruby Redfort, who has to juggle her mundane life at school with being a top international secret agent and expert code-breaker.

The winner of numerous awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal and multiple Smarties Prizes, Lauren Child has been Britain's Children's Laureate since 2017.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Lauren talks about the struggle she faced in her twenties to find direction in life, the challenge and joy of adopting her daughter from Mongolia, and why she can't work unless she's feeling melancholy. She chooses a Mongolian long song for her daughter; music by Satie that conjures up her own childhood; and music by Puccini and Vivaldi used in films that had a huge impact on the development of her imagination.

Cairo-born, longtime Sydney-resident oud virtuoso Joseph Tawadros has reimagined the range of music accessible to his instrument, the ancient Middle- Eastern lute.

Steeped in traditional Arabic music (his grandfather was a respected composer, oud player and violinist) but also an avid collaborator with a diverse array of musicians, he draws equally on jazz and folk styles in a kaleidoscopic celebration of his instrument.

His debut at the Proms embraces traditional Arabic taqsim (improvisation) and maqam (pieces based on traditional scales) as well as his own compositions, and the world premiere of a BBC commission by Australian composer Jessica Wells.

This afternoon's Proms Interval is an account of a classic English summer walk in a thunderstorm. The acclaimed novelist and nature writer Melissa Harrison explores our relationship with the weather as she follows the course of a thundery rain shower deep in the Kent countryside. Fittingly, given this sun-blessed summer, she walks alongside the River Darent at the end of a drought and reflects on how the countryside changes in wet weather - and how the English identity is shaped by the elements..
The extract is introduced and read by the author, and taken from her collection Rain: Four Walks in English Weather.

SUN 18:00 Words and Music (b0bd7psq)
Under The Microscope

With Rachael Stirling and Paul Bentall. Poetry, prose and music on the world opened up by microscopy, from fleas to micro-organisms. A full list of the readings and music can be found on the Words and Music programme website.

Microscopes are devices for looking beyond immediate appearances to find the truth. So a programme about microscopes could include material exploring how truth is elusive, non-obvious, problematic. The most obvious examples of explorations of this theme here come from John Donne and Emily Dickinson, and also from Democritus, who opens the programme. His words are accompanied by a piece of 'music' devised by scientists working at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, who've written an algorithm that converts results obtained by the Collider into musical notes.

More immediately, there is some great writing from the 17th century that captures the thrill of discovery that surrounded the first systematic use of microscopes - represented here by Francis Bacon, Anton van Leeuwenhoek, and Henry Power. The sense that a new world was being opened up is so palpable in these writings that the use of music from Haydn's operetta The World on the Moon, and Gorecki's Copernicus Symphony, seemed quite appropriate. The microcosm and the macrocosm are internally related, after all, and this is an idea explored in some of the more recent poets sampled here: Ruth Padel and Miroslav Holub both see the wider universe when they look through a microscope.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.

Andrew Manze and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra open with Haydn's lively, assertive final symphony - composed and first performed in London during the composer's second triumphant residency.

First performed in March 1914, Vaughan Williams's A London Symphony evokes the chimes of Westminster, a chilly November in Bloomsbury and the bright lights of the Strand in a city that would soon be scarred by war.

Inon Barnatan, piano
Minnesota Orchestra
Osmo Vänskä, conductor

A great American orchestra marks Leonard Bernstein's 100th-anniversary year with a concert of 20th century American classics that represent Bernstein in his multiple guises as composer, conductor and pianist.

The breathless exuberance of Bernstein's Candide overture is extended by Inon Barnatan in Gershwin's Concerto in F major, which filters the composer's popular jazz idiom through classical structures and Lisztian virtuosity.

Premiered by Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1951, Ives's attractive Second Symphony melds European techniques with an all-American sound-world.


MON 21:15 Sunday Feature (b08md9zd)
I Know an Island - RM Lockley

Jon Gower uncovers the work of the pioneering naturalist RM Lockley, whose work inspired 'Watership Down'.

In terms of bringing the natural world to the public, RM Lockley remains one of the most influential writers of his time. Born in 1903 in Cardiff, Lockley was self-taught yet solved many mysteries of migration, mostly due to the time he spent on the small island of Skokholm, 4 kilometres off the western tip of Pembrokeshire. On this island, named by Vikings, and inhabited otherwise only by birds and rabbits, he wrote ground-breaking works on the migratory habits of Manx shearwaters, detailed the breeding habits and life cycles of all the island birds in Island Days (1934) and I Know An Island (1938), and founded the first British bird observatory, still functioning, of which there are now 19 around the coast of the UK.

It was a hard and spartan life. To begin with, Lockley reared and sold rabbits; but writing books and articles on wildlife, he quickly found, was far more remunerative. The wider world began to take interest, and Lockley became friendly with other scientists and naturalists such as Peter Scott and Julian Huxley. Lockley managed to persuade Alexander Korda to come to Pembrokeshire and shoot one of the earliest naturalist films, 'The Private Life of the Gannets' in 1934. The film, written by Lockley and directed by Huxley, was made on the nearby island of Grassholm, won the first Oscar for a natural history film, and is still revered today as groundbreaking.

But perhaps Lockley's most important legacy is the inspiration he provided for the classic of children's literature 'Watership Down'. Lockley wrote a dry government report about rabbits, and then turned it into 'The Private Life of the Rabbit', which Adams read. They became friends, travelled to Antarctica together, and Adams introduced Lockley, the real-life character, into his novel 'The Plague Dogs'.

For Jon Gower, Lockley set him on a path towards both birdwatching and writing about the natural world. After he read the Shearwaters monograph aged 12, he resolved to travel to Bardsey island to ring and observe birds like Lockley. He talks to others who took inspiration from him, and considers how much we learned from Lockley's home-made experiments.

As much as painting a portrait of Lockley and his time on Skokholm, this feature evokes and pays tribute to the stunning coastline and island where Lockley worked.

Presented by Ian Skelly from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Smyth: The Wreckers - On the Cliffs of Cornwall (Prelude to Act 2)
Dvořák: Cello Concerto in B minor

c. 3.15pm
Strauss: Ein Heldenleben

Daniel Müller‐Schott (cello)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Otto Tausk (conductor)

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

Triumphant horns and a flirtatious, vivacious solo violin set the tone for Strauss's vivid autobiographical tone-poem Ein Heldenleben - 'A Hero's Life', outwardly inspired by 'an ideal of great and manly heroism'. The orchestra is also at the forefront in Dvořák's Cello Concerto, sounding as an equal partner to the soloist - German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott, who returns to the Proms under conductor Otto Tausk - in an intensely personal work that marries a pervasive sense of longing with real passion. And in the centenary year of British women gaining the right to vote, Ethel Smyth's evocative Act 2 Prelude from The Wreckers celebrates a key British composer who, as a suffragette, spent two months in Holloway Prison.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Thea Musgrave: Phoenix Rising

Interval: Proms Plus:
Presenter Ian Skelly introduces Brahms' 'A German Requiem', together with Reverend Lucy Winkett. Recorded earlier at the Imperial College Union.

Brahms: A German Requiem

Golda Schultz (soprano)
Johan Reuter (baritone)
BBC Symphony Chorus
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Richard Farnes (conductor)

Inspired by the death of his mother, Brahms's tender, consoling A German Requiem couldn't be further from Verdi's and Berlioz's settings of the standard Latin Mass text. It's the first of three Requiems this season marking 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Richard Farnes makes his Proms debut directing the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, along with soloists Golda Schultz and Johan Reuter.

Thea Musgrave's Phoenix Rising (marking the composer's 90th birthday this year) also traces a journey from darkness to light -enacting the conflict both spatially and musically- in some of the composer's most dramatic writing.

WED 11:00 Edinburgh International Festival (b0bdb6rq)
2018 Queen's Hall Series, Viktoria Mullova and Katia Labeque

Live from the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh, pioneering Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova is joined by charismatic French pianist Katia Labèque for a richly varied recital of Romantic and Twentieth century music. Prokofiev's three-movement sonata for solo violin is a bold opener with its strong melodic lines and energetic rhythmic flow in neoclassical style originally written for talented young violinists to play in unison. Schumann's sweeping and passionate Violin Sonata provides a strong contrast to this and is followed after the interval with more sensuous and atmospheric works by Arvo Pärt and Takemitsu alongside Ravel's jazz-infused Sonata to close the concert.

Prokofiev: Solo Violin Sonata in D major, Op. 115

WED 13:00 Composer of the Week (b0bdw4cf)
Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936), Love and War

Ottorino Respighi (1879-1936) remains one of the most popular - and controversial - Italian composers of the 20th century: a man caught in time between the high Romantic drama of his predecessors Verdi and Puccini, and the Futurism and avant-garde musical experiments of his later compatriots Dallapiccola, Berio and Scelsi.
Respighi chose a different route - his work often infused with the music of a halcyon past. Many of Respighi's work look back to the Italian Baroque - some even to Gregorian chant. Yet they remain charmingly, distinctively blended with his own 20th-century musical language. This week Donald Macleod - like Respighi - takes a path less trodden as he presents a series of lesser-known masterpieces from the pen of this Italian master.

Today, Donald explores Respighi's dark days during the First World War, and the influence of his new wife, Elsa. Including music from his delightful "Boutique Fantasque", based on the music of Rossini.

Live at BBC Proms: The BBC Philharmonic and their Chief Conductor Juanjo Mena in music by Britten, Walton, Barber and Copland. They are joined by soprano Sally Matthews.

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London, presented by Ian Skelly.

Barber: Antony and Cleopatra - Two scenes
Britten: Four Sea Interludes from 'Peter Grimes'

Sally Matthews (soprano)
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

In Bernstein's centenary year, Juanjo Mena and the BBC Philharmonic celebrate with a transatlantic Prom, uniting music by British and American composers connected not just by generation but in many cases personal friendship. Commissioned and premiered by Bernstein, Copland's Connotations is a portrait of "the tensions aspirations and drama inherent in the world today". Its knotty confrontations find contrast in the sensuous beauty of Britten's orchestral song-cycle Les illuminations, while the sea provides inspiration both for Walton's bustling, bonhomous Portsmouth Point overture and Britten's boldly dramatic Four Sea Interludes from his opera 'Peter Grimes'. Sally Matthews joins the orchestra for two extracts from Samuel Barber's opera Antony and Cleopatra which complete the programme.


WED 21:15 Sunday Feature (b08rg1fm)
The Bloomsbury Lighthouse

During the Second World War, almost every artist and writer left in London spent some time working for the Ministry of Information, the teeming, often absurd and deeply bureaucratic institution at the heart of Britain's wartime propaganda effort. Among them where some unlikely figures: Graham Greene, George Orwell, A L Lloyd and Laurie Lee.

In and around Senate House, the University of London's vast neo-Georgian skyscraper in Bloomsbury, thousands of people carried out censorship and produced propaganda material for the British Government, amongst them some of the most prominent creative figures of the 1930s and '40s.

But what effect did the experience have on these four apparent non-conformists and on their subsequent work? Cultural Historian Dr Lara Feigel, writer and journalist Owen Hatherley, storyteller, musician and writer Dave Arthur and literary critic Alexandra Harris wander the labyrinthine corridors of Senate House, unravelling the wartime stories of four writers and conjuring the strange and febrile atmosphere of the building at the heart of Britain's wartime bureaucracy.

This week Donald Macleod - like Respighi - takes a path less trodden as he presents a series of lesser-known masterpieces from the pen of this Italian master.

Today, Donald Macleod sees Respighi enjoying success at home and abroad during the 1920s, including music based on Botticelli's famous painting 'The Birth of Venus'. However, disputes wtih the managers of the La Scala theatre in Milan threaten to scupper his latest opera project.

Philharmonia Orchestra
Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor

The Philharmonia Orchestra and its Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen take a musical journey from aphorism to epic. Barely six minutes long, Webern's Five Pieces for Orchestra distils expression down to its most concentrated form, every musical gesture carrying infinite weight and colour. By contrast, Wagner's Die Walküre, the second instalment of his monumental Ring cycle, explores musical expansion and amplitude, offering an all-consuming vision of illicit love. At the midpoint is the Adagio from Mahler's 10th Symphony - music that grasps towards eternity and immortality but that was to remain tragically unfinished at the composer's death.


THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b08slgl2)
The Killers

Adam Smith traces Ernest Hemingway's brutal, brilliant short story - from its birth in gangster-era Chicago, through its Hollywood afterlife as a noir classic, to its strange status as Ronald Reagan's last movie.

Ernest Hemingway wrote his short story 'The Killers' in 1926. Two hitmen enter a small-town lunch-room. They have come to kill an ex-boxer who has double-crossed someone. The boxer is warned, but doesn't run.

Hemingway captures the American man at a moral crossroads. Should he follow the code of the boxing ring, where a man proves himself, and go down fighting? Or should he grab the easy money and throw in his lot with the gangsters?

Hollywood loved it - and so Adam traces how a colourful cast of characters turned this short, sharp story into two very different movies.

The first, in 1946, is a black-and-white noir classic. It was the brainchild of Mark Hellinger, a producer who was all too friendly with real-life gangsters like Bugsy Siegel. It made the names of its new stars, Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner. But its main screenwriter - Hemingway's friend and fellow boxing fan John Huston - went unsung.

The next, in 1964, was much gaudier. At the heart of this version is a truly bizarre scene. Ronald Reagan, his acting career on the slide, reluctantly agreed to play a violent crook who is pretending to be a legitimate businessman.

And yet this hinted at the pasts of the producers of this movie. They too had long-time links with the gang world, stretching right back to Al Capone's Chicago.

It was meant for TV but was deemed too violent. Especially as it featured a scene queasily similar to the assassination of President Kennedy, which happened on the second day of shooting. And the sniper? Future President Ronald Reagan.

And so finally Adam explores how this failing actor ended up playing a role that catches the delicate moral line between playing by the rules and doing whatever it takes to get rich. Just as he was about to launch his career as a political megastar.

Producer: Phil Tinline.

Author and critic Ben Ratliff delivers the latest Late Junction Mixtape, curating thirty minutes of carefully chosen music.

In his writing, Ratliff is a master of exploring and explaining the listening experience, and opening our ears to unexpected connections and ways of hearing. Tonight he asks us to consider those songs that transmit a distinct idea of the recording room itself, through interesting microphone placement, or resonant spaces, or unexpected interruptions. Expect to hear tracks from Grouper and Grupo de Samba de Parelha da Mussuca.

Between 1996 and 2016 Ben Ratliff wrote about jazz and pop music for The New York Times. He currently teaches cultural criticism at New York University's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, and has four books under his belt: "The Jazz Ear: Conversations Over Music"; "Coltrane: The Story of a Sound"; "Jazz: A Critic's Guide to the 100 Most Important Recordings"; and "Every Song Ever".

Appearing at the Proms for the first time in five years, Rome's Santa Cecilia Orchestra (of which Bernstein was Honorary President for almost a decade) and its Music Director Sir Antonio Pappano perform Bernstein's youthful First Symphony, charged with political anxiety and dread, alongside another symphonic debut, Mahler's dramatic First.

The evening opens with Haydn's arresting musical vision of primordial chaos.


FRI 22:00 Sunday Feature (b08wn0lh)
From the Ashes

In the aftermath of World War II, Europe lay in ruins, devastated by mass slaughter, bombings and chaos. How could countries find reconciliation and a shared future in such conditions? Allan Little discovers that one way was through arts festivals started across the continent in the aftermath of the war.

Allan visits Aix-en-Provence and Avignon in southern France, cities where the establishment of festivals seventy years ago led to a sustained enthusiasm and commitment to the arts. The situation in 1947 was extremely difficult, with a shortage of finance, infrastructure, and locations to put on events. In Avignon, it was the military who helped build the stage in the Pope's Palace for theatrical performances.

Further north, the Holland Festival was founded in the same year, along with the Edinburgh International Festival. In each case the desire was the same - to heal the terrible divisions brought about by war. But in each case, as Allan discovers, there were immense challenges which had to be overcome.

Producer Mark Rickards.

Five Screen Goddesses, Jean Harlow

Author and broadcaster Sarah Churchwell describes the spell that female film stars of the 1930s and '40s have over her..

From Barbara Stanwyck, 'the tough broad', to a vision of modernity who is all 'satin' and 'chrome'. The author moves on to consider the original 'blonde bombshell' - Jean Harlow.

Producer Duncan Minshull.

BBC Music Introducing at Latitude with Kathryn Tickell

Our Road Trip takes us to Festival Med in the South of Portugal where singer Sara Tavares was performing in June - her recommendations include some of the best in fado - from the historic recordings of Amalia Rodrigues to the contemporary sounds of Carminho - as well as local hip-hop artist Carlao who samples the funana bands of his parents' homeland of Cape Verde, an ancestry shared by Tavares herself. Our classic artist this week is the Zion Travelers, a lesser known but highly regarded American gospel quartet from California active in the 1940s and 50s. And in this week's Mixtape, Jack Yglesias of Family Atlantica and the Heliocentrics selects a Hugh Tracey field recording from Zimbabwe, a recent recording by Colombia's Nidia Gongora with her group Canalon de Timbiqui, and some vintage Cuban rumba from Grupo Guaguancó Matancero.
