SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b0wlh1)
Inside Music with Claire Booth

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today soprano Claire Booth explains how a song by Mussorgsky has to be sung in Russian to stop it sounding like Gilbert and Sullivan, why the scherzo of Bruckner's 8th Symphony requires just the right tempo and how a Liszt arrangement of a Schubert song made her daughter cry with fear.

At 2 o'clock Claire reveals her Must Listen piece. It's a work she describes as dividing musical opinion - but wonders whether the sceptics have simply been listening to the wrong recordings. As she says, her chosen performance has opened her ears to the piece's sense of space.

SAT 15:00 Sound of Dance (m00009zt)
Marie Rambert, a ballet by Wayne Eagling

Katie Derham explores the life and legacy of Marie Rambert, one of the pioneers of modern British ballet, and talks to choreographer Wayne Eagling about his new ballet based on her life.

Born in Poland, Marie 'Mim' Rambert's career began in Paris, helping Diaghilev train his cast to dance the Rite of Spring. At the outbreak of WW1 she came to London and formed her own dance school, which developed into the Ballet Rambert, the oldest English ballet company still performing today. Her teaching inspired the next generations of dancers and choreographers, including Wayne Eagling whose new ballet 'Remembrance' is based on her life, and the separation from her husband when he was called away to war. Katie talks to Wayne about the concept of his new ballet, and Marie Rambert's continuing importance to the ballet world.

Chick Corea

In a rare interview, jazz piano great Chick Corea reveals his musical inspirations – sharing insights into the music of John Coltrane, Art Tatum and Hungarian composer Béla Bartók and discussing their influence on his work.

Corea is one of the world's greatest living jazz musicians. As the piano player with Miles Davis in the late 1960s he featured on several landmark recordings, including Bitches Brew. His own group, Return to Forever, were at the forefront of the jazz fusion movement and his subsequent projects, both electric and acoustic, have earned him numerous awards – including over 20 Grammys.

Also in the programme, French trumpeter Erik Truffaz, another fusion pioneer, recorded live in concert. And presenter Kevin Le Gendre plays a mix of classic tracks and the best new releases.

Produced by Thomas Rees and Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.

Sir Andrew Davis (conductor)

Sir Andrew Davis, the much-loved former Chief Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and a veteran steersman of the Last Night, returns to direct the greatest annual party in classical music. The popular nautical theme of traditional favourites by Henry Wood and Thomas Arne is extended in Stanford’s Songs of the Sea, featuring star Canadian baritone Gerald Finley.

Another British choral classic, Blest Pair of Sirens – honouring the ‘harmonious sisters, Voice and Verse’ – joins Jerusalem in the centenary year of Hubert Parry’s death.

There’s a dash of Broadway in the touching ‘Soliloquy’ from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel, in which the wife-battering Billy finds new eloquence while vowing to change his ways, and a more mischievous streak in Milhaud’s delightful suite Scaramouche.

Roxanna Panufnik’s new commission, Songs of Darkness, Dreams of Light, rounds off a series of over 40 world, UK or London premieres this season, continuing the forward-looking vision of Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood.


SAT 23:00 Hear and Now (m0000b04)
The world’s strangest Proms after party

Enter a psychedelic dream sequence from an imaginary Last Night of the Proms after party, where fuzzy memories of festivals past and future rub up against each other, creating a sense of bewilderment, excitement and constant surprise.

Orderly Mouthpiece Spent is a special edition of Hear And Now devised and composed by Neil Luck and members of ARCO and the Squib Box collective, who have established a reputation for cutting-edge concert events combining elements of physical theatre, avant-garde virtuoso musical performance and sound art.

Get ready for a combination of radiophonic treatments, newly composed chamber works and classic radio tropes, all filtered through the zany and surreal imagination of Neil Luck and his ensemble – as presenter Tom Service attempts to keep track of the proceedings.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0000bc1)
Steve Punt

Steve Punt is well known thanks to the popular Radio 4 Friday night comedy, The Now Show - with fellow-host Hugh Dennis, he’s been mocking politicians and celebrities for an astonishing twenty years now. He also presents The Third Degree, the Radio 4 quiz which pits undergraduates against professors. But behind the scenes he’s been busy writing for a whole host of other shows, such as Mock the Week and The Mary Whitehouse Experience, for comedians Jasper Carrott and Rory Bremner; he even used to write for the puppets on Spitting Image. He says “Weirdly, I think people are more inclined to believe comedians than they are politicians.”

In Private Passions, Steve talk to Michael Berkeley about how it all began: when he was bad at games at school, and forced to play the clown. He reminisces about his first job, in a music shop in Croydon, which he describes as being so rich in comic material that it was a bit like a sitcom – all of life was there. He talks about how audiences have changed thanks to social media, and why he worries that mocking politicians may just be a way of feeding their gigantic egos.

Music choices include Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, piano music by Debussy and by Scott Joplin, Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite, Dave Brubeck, and a comic masterpiece by Dudley Moore, “Bedazzled”.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0000bc7)
Ken Campbell as Never Heard Before

Act louder! Act better!

When Ken Campbell died in 2008, the world lost a madcap genius with a singular approach to acting and directing, partly summed up by his own maxim - ‘Is it heroic?’.

2018 marks the 10th anniversary of Campbell’s death, but his influence lives on through the acting talent he inspired, such as Jim Broadbent - ‘I realised that life would be divided into before Illuminatus and after Illuiminatus”; Sylvester McCoy, whose ferret/ trouser antics have gone into the Guinness Book of Records, and Toby Jones, who regarded Ken’s one man show ‘Pigspurt’ as the show he had been waiting for all his life.

Ken changed lives and careers, including presenter David Bramwell - who tracked him down for help with a one man show that needed to be shaken up.

So what were Ken’s specific techniques when it came to directing, and why did ‘the most audacious talent in British theatre’ finally retreat with his dogs and parrot to an isolated house in Epping Forest?

Bramwell, a fervent but late convert to Cambellism, meets the Campbell Clan - his daughter Daisy and granddaughter Dixie, who have both inherited the brilliant storytelling skills, and Prunella Gee, (Ken’s ex-wife), and with them he delves into the unopened archive of Ken - a lifetime’s worth of monologues, scripts and recordings.

Bramwell gets taught how to ‘Ken’, in a class run by Jeremy Stockwell, who regularly organises ‘Do you Ken?’ workshops for actors, and hears of underwater shows, tie acting and 53 hour improvathons from Oliver Senton.

There are also tales of tantrums, hilarity, eccentricity and brilliance, that those who came under his directoral command will never forget, summed up by the maxim -
“I will give you impossible things to do, and then shout at you when you can’t do them.” According to one fellow actor, ‘he came out of the womb certain about everything.’

Ken’s own influences were many, director Lindsay Anderson, The Bishop of Colchester (!) and Warren Mitchell, who he performed alongside for many years in ‘In
Sickness And in Health’.

Funny, sweet, weird and inspiring, we hear from those closest to him, and those who wanted to be like him. Oh, and there is a wonderful rendition by Daisy in Pidgin English..

Producer: Sara Jane Hall
Music by David Bramwell.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b07wrnb1)
The Present Experiment

Robin Brooks' deliciously lyrical comedy romps through the first hours of the pioneering Third Programme, in fact and fantasy.

1946. A new government and the NHS. The first Festival of British contemporary music. Peter Grimes. De-mobbed servicemen and young working-class beneficiaries of the Butler Act are crowding into university. And in a Blitz-battered Broadcasting House, chosen head George Barnes (1st in History, Kings) and his Director-General William Hayley (no university education) meet to discuss a new arts network, Programme C, (after A - Light - and B - Home) to pull up the cultural life of the nation by its bootstraps.

Inspired by the disruptive geniuses of early contributors Louis MacNeice, Dylan Thomas and Benjamin Britten, the story of the network's dreams and fears begins to unwind in a fantastical verse adventure through the corridors of Broadcasting House. Meanwhile in the wry BBC realpolitik of W1A 1946, staff producer Guy Burgess is being consulted about how to stop the Russians invading the frequency with weird interruptions from Riga Station.

Edinburgh International Festival: The Opening Concert

In his sixties, having been inspired by Handel’s own works and sourcing a libretto from the Bible and John Milton's Paradise Lost, Haydn produced his oratorio The Creation. The result was a work that depicted in wide-eyed wonder the creation of the world and Haydn’s belief in God. Its first public performance prompted one audience member to write ‘In my whole life I will not hear another piece of music as beautiful; and even if it had lasted three hours longer, and even if the stink and sweat-bath had been much worse, I would not have minded… In short I never left a theatre more contented, and all night I dreamed of the creation of the world.’

Bernstein's New York

Tom Service travels to New York City to discover if Bernstein's musical and social legacy continues to echo through the streets of the Big Apple and the lives of New Yorkers. Visiting key places where Bernstein lived and worked, Tom meets the musicians, institutions and ensembles of today who are working towards goals Bernstein championed as a musician, communicator and humanitarian.

Tom visits Jamie Bernstein at the flat where the Bernstein family archives resides, while at the archives of the New York Philharmonic, Tom finds a musical score which reveals a fascinating self-insight by the maestro himself, and with the orchestra's archivist Barbara Haws remembers her time working with Bernstein, how he changed orchestral relations, and how his conducting traditions are still in place today. Historian Julia Foulkes explains how resonances of West Side Story are found in the hit Broadway musicals of the 21st century, and with Deborah Borda, CEO of the New York Philharmonic and conductors Michael Tilson Thomas and Joshua Weilerstein, Tom discovers initiatives aimed at bringing the joy of classical music to new audiences today, as Bernstein did. Tom visits National Sawdust in Brooklyn, which carries on Bernstein's ideas on social and musical collaboration, and Humphrey Burton, Bernstein biographer, offers his views on where Bernstein's legacy can be found today.


MON 22:45 The Essay (m0000b4c)
Italy Outdoors, The Piazza

Writer Polly Coles reads the first of her essays about Italy’s public spaces: The Piazza, the centre of every Italian community from hamlets to great cities. Italian life is famously lived out of doors. Its public spaces are prized and replicated far beyond its borders and the world flocks to partake of its vivid, shared life of piazzas, streets, seafront promenades, churches and market places. In this series Polly looks at different outdoor spaces in Italy, revealing them as places of rich and ancient cultural diversity. 

Beginning with the piazza, the beating heart of Italian identity, she suggests it reflects a very Italian need to be together in public.

Edinburgh International Festival: YOA Orchestra of the Americas

YOA Orchestra of the Americas, an outstanding youth orchestra drawn from countries across both North and South American makes its debut at the Edinburgh International Festival with works from both continents. Mexican composer Carlos Chávez devoted his life to promoting the music of Mexico and also founded Mexico's first permanent professional orchestra. His Sinfonia India is a synthesis of folk material of native tunes, rhythms and instruments into a western symphonic form and his work was praised by Aaron Copland who held him in high regard and became lifelong friends with him. Aaron Copland's Third Symphony has been described as 'the greatest American Symphony' by Serge Koussevitsky who commissioned it. It includes his famous 'Fanfare for the Common Man which opens the last movement and somehow evokes the wide open plains of America without any overt use of folk or popular material.

A strong supporter and promoter of the YOA, Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero joins the orchestra to perform Tchaikovsky's Concerto no. 1, one of the most beloved of all romantic piano concertos.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0000b6r)
Italy Outdoors, La Strada

Writer Polly Coles reads her second essays about Italy’s public spaces: La Strada (The Road) is a place of exile, loss, transition and vision beyond the civilized confines of the city. Italy is a country that famously lives out of doors. Its public spaces are prized and replicated far beyond its borders, and the world flocks to partake of its vivid, shared life of piazzas, streets, seafront promenades, churches and market places. In this series Polly looks at different outdoor spaces in Italy, revealing them as places of rich and ancient cultural diversity. 

In this essay, she examines the road as a symbol of poverty, exile, vision and eventually of gain through endurance in Italian art, literature and film from Dante to Fellini.

TUE 23:00 Late Junction (m0000b6t)
Verity Sharp at the End of the Road Festival 2018

For the second year running Late Junction headed to the Wiltshire countryside to host an electrifying line up of artists from across the left field at End of the Road festival. Wringing out the last of the summer evenings, End of the Road takes place at the end of August and is a festival for music lovers. Late Junction selected four acts to headline the Tipi stage on Friday the 31st of August and now you can hear the highlights from the comfort of your sofa.

Multi-instrumentalist, composer and academic Annie Lewandowski is the beating heart of polymath pop outfit Powerdove. Bolstered by band members Thomas Bonvalet and Chad Popple, Powerdove reference everything from the classical avant garde, 1970s prog folk and 1980s post-punk. Combining improvisation with unconventional instrumentation, Verity plays highlights from the polyrhythmic trio’s wildly unpredictable and captivating live show.

Topping our bill we hear live repeats from Sudanese ten piece The Scorpios who first arrived in the UK in the 1980s as refugees and now consist of members from all over the world, with an international backing band comprised of musicians from Ghana, Jamaica, Poland and Japan. Influenced by traditional Sudanese songs and 1960s pop, they blend Arabic rhythms and guitar chops with raw Eastern funk. Verity plays highlights from their performance which features heavy bass, synths, horns and percussion and owes as much to Detroit as it does to Khartoum.

Edinburgh International Festival: NYOS Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra of Canada

In the year of Young People as designated by the Scottish Government, the National Youth Orchestras from Scotland and Canada perform at the Edinburgh International Festival with music from France, England, America and Canada. The NYOS Symphony Orchestra is the top orchestra of the National Youth Orchestras of Scotland family. They make their first appearance at the EIF for 30 years with two of Debussy's great orchestral masterpieces, two rarely heard works by Lili Boulanger and Cecil Coles both dating from 1918 the year both these young composers died. The National Youth Orchestra of Canada was formed in 1960 by Walter Susskind to prepare young Canadian musicians as professional orchestral players. They bring a new commission by the prominent Canadian composer John Estacio inspired by lunar tides on Earth which lends itself to a cinematic style currently being set to film. Their programme also includes the evergreen Appalachian Spring, perhaps Copland's most quintessentially American work. It was a collaboration with the dancer Martha Graham for a ballet which was premiered at the Library of Congress in Washington DC and is probably his both well-loved masterpiece. They end their programme with Vaughan William's pastoral Symphony considered by some as the composer's 'war 'requiem'. It is largely quiet and largely elegiac in mood and suggests an infinite sadness for the slaughter of many young lives.

Debussy: Iberia
Boulanger: D'un matin de printemps
Coles: Behind the Lines

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0000bd8)
Italy Outdoors, Walls

Writer Polly Coles reads Walls, the third of her essays about Italy’s public spaces, in which she explores the history and fundamental ambiguity in the idea of a city wall. Italy is a country that famously lives out of doors. Its public spaces are prized and replicated far beyond its borders, and the world flocks to partake of its vivid, shared life of piazzas, streets, seafront promenades, churches and market places. In this series, Polly looks at a variety of outdoor spaces in Italy, revealing them to be places of rich and ancient cultural diversity. 

This essay begins with the walls of Genoa, believed by some to be the second longest in the world, after the Great Wall of China.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (m0000bdb)
Verity Sharp at the End of the Road Festival 2018

We continue to showcase the best from the Late Junction stage at this year’s End of the Road festival in Wiltshire, a festival for a wide range of music lovers at the tail end of summer. This year late Junction returned with a bill of four adventurous artists to headline the Friday evening in the Tipi tent.

Verity plays highlights from the two remaining acts, Philadelphia noise artist Moor Mother and Polish duo Zimpel / Ziolek. Moor Mother is the music project of musician, poet and visual artist, Camae Ayewa. Using samples, spoken word and free jazz to bend definitions of rap, Moor Mother channels a new vision of the afro-futurism of fellow Philadelphia artist Sun Ra. Her live show is unapologetically confrontational, mixing protest and time-travel in a whirlwind of noise and poetry. Verity plays highlights from her arresting live performance.

Zimpel / Ziolek is the coming together of two leading multi-instrumentalists from Poland’s fertile experimental underground. Fusing the modern jazz minimalism of Waclaw Zimpel with Kuba Ziolek’s traditional folk leanings, the pair combine astounding clarinet solos and hypnotic guitar work. Verity presents highlights from their set at End of the Road, which was their debut performance at a UK festival.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0000bpf)
Edinburgh International Festival 2018

Recorded at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh
Presented by Donald Macleod

Edinburgh International Festival 2018: BBC SSO and Martyn Brabbins perform Thea Musgrave's Turbulent Landscapes and Vaughan Williams' Sea Symphony with Edinburgh Festival Chorus.

Thea Musgrave: Turbulent Landscapes

Interval

Vaughan Williams: Symphony No 1 ( A Sea Symphony )

Elizabeth Watts (soprano)
Christopher Maltman (baritone)
Edinburgh Festival Chorus
Martyn Brabbins (conductor)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra perform music of land and sea, from the stage of Edinburgh's Usher Hall. Thea Musgrave's Turbulent Landscapes - receiving its Scottish Premiere - takes inspiration from the paintings of J. M. W. Turner, its movements turning those images into rich sonic pictures as diverse as his "Sunrise with Sea Monsters", and "Hannibal and his Army Crossing the Alps."

"Behold the Sea", so begins Vaughan Williams' epic A Sea Symphony, a vast sea-picture drawing on the words of Walt Whitman's metaphysical magnum-opus, Leaves of Grass. Tonight their humanist message comes to life in the voices of soloists Christopher Maltman and Elizabeth Watts, along with the massed ranks of the Edinburgh Festival Chorus.


THU 22:00 Free Thinking (m0000bph)
Sebastian Faulks

The author of Birdsong talks to Anne McElvoy in one of the first conversations about his new novel. Sebastian Faulks discusses depicting France past and present from World War I to Algeria and immigration now as he publishes his latest novel called Paris Echo. Recorded with an audience at the BBC Proms.

Producer: Fiona McLean.


THU 22:45 The Essay (m0000bpk)
Italy Outdoors, The Garden

Writer Polly Coles reads The Garden her fourth essay about Italy’s public spaces. Italian gardens have a long cultural history which is very different from that of Britain. Italy is a country that famously lives out of doors. Its public spaces are prized and replicated far beyond its borders, and the world flocks to partake of its vivid, shared life of piazzas, streets, seafront promenades, churches and market places. In this series Polly looks at different outdoor spaces in Italy, revealing them as places of rich and ancient cultural diversity. 

Polly discusses how the Italian garden has been a space of profound seclusion and privacy, and at other times the opposite: a place of display and worldly relations. She ends in in Venice, where these apparently conflicting values are resolved in one small community garden.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0000bpm)
An exclusive mixtape from James Holden at End of the Road Festival

In the final of our triptych of shows devoted to Late Junction at End of the Road Festival, Verity presents an exclusive mixtape by electronic shaman James Holden, mixed in front of a live audience on Saturday evening. The mix traces differing notions of trance in music from the transcendental states induced by the traditional music of North Africa to the ecstatic rhythms of spiritual jazz. Ahead of his appearance at the festival, Verity discusses this idea with James and how it was born out of a formative trip to Morocco to collaborate with the Gnawa musician Maâlem Mahmoud Guinia.

Since his success producing euphoric electronic music in the early 2000s, Exeter-born James Holden has moved further away from dance music, reshaping his sound as his philosophy and taste has shifted. Alongside his musical career he has also launched his own label, Border Community and is a sought after producer and remixer. His last album was recorded in one take with improvising ensemble The Animal Spirits and moves between euphoric melodies to intense improvisation which Holden describes as 'something like a spiritual jazz band playing folk trance music'

Produced by Alannah Chance for Reduced Listening.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0000c4s)
Italy Outdoors, The Church

Writer Polly Coles explores the curious coexistence of public grandeur and personal domesticity in The Church, her final essay in this series about Italy’s public spaces. Italy is a country that famously lives out of doors. Its public spaces are prized and replicated far beyond its borders, and the world flocks to partake of its vivid, shared life of piazzas, streets, seafront promenades, churches and market places. For centuries, private and public business has been carried out in these spaces: politics, trade, display, ritual and social contact amongst much else. In this series Polly Coles looks at the public spaces of Italy, revealing them as places of rich and ancient cultural diversity. 

Polly begins in the ancient cathedral of San Lorenzo in Genoa and ends in a beautiful temporary wooden chapel on the Venetian lagoon. This is the story of churches as places of many parts: from the public and highly formalized to the domestic, intimate and personally transforming.
