9.30am Building a Library: Sarah Walker on Mozart’s Double Piano Concerto K365

Building a Library: Sarah Walker listens to some of the available recordings of Mozart's Concerto for two pianos E-flat major, K. 365 and makes a recommendation.

Mozart's ebullient and warm-hearted double piano concerto was written for him and his sister to play, a delightful demonstration of the overflowing affection he had for Nannerl. Feelings all the more heartfelt, perhaps, as he grimly returned home to Salzburg. Because the concerto was composed in the wake of a gruelling and bitterly disappointing 18-month tour around Europe during which his mother died, he was jilted by the love of his life, and he failed to secure the much hoped-for appointment which would have saved him from what he called his 'Salzburg slavery'.

Recommended Recording:

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (m0000d2q)
Neeme Järvi

Kate Molleson meets conductor Neeme Järvi - a towering figure in Estonian music, patriarch of a conducting dynasty, and the recent recipient of a Gramophone Lifetime Achievement Award. On the centenary of Estonian independence, he talks to Kate about the country's political history and musical culture, and how it has shaped his life in music.

Journalist Ed Vulliamy discusses his latest book, When Words Fail, which draws on his own experiences as a war correspondent to ask whether music can make the world a better place in times of war and peace. After a recent story about plans to use atonal music to deter drug users and rough sleepers from lingering around a Berlin railway station, Morag Grant from Edinburgh University looks at the history of using music as a tool of aggression and social policing. And, in the first of our new Hidden Voices series which runs across the year, we explore the remarkable life and work of Danish electronic music pioneer, Else Marie Pade. The first composer of electronic and concrete music in Denmark, Pade spent time in a prison camp during the Second World War and it was her early experiences in life that determined the kind of music she would go on to make. Journalist Anne Hilde Neset and sound artist Jacob Kirkegaard tell her story.


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

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

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

SAT 15:00 Sound of Dance (m0000d1m)
Tap with Clare Halse and Simon Adkins from the musical 42nd Street

Katie Derham explores the world of tap with leading lady Clare Halse and resident choreographer Simon Adkins from the smash hit musical 42nd Street.

From its roots as a mixture of clog dancing, soft shoe and African-influenced dance, tap as we know it started to emerge in the 1920s. Some Vaudeville and night club performers successfully made the transition into film when the talkies were invented, culminating a golden age of Hollywood with dancers like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Katie looks at the history and development of the dance form, and talks to Clare Halse and Simon Adkins about how the rhythm of tap becomes part of a musical score.

Producer - Ellie Mant

SAT 17:00 J to Z (m0000d2w)
Vijay Iyer

East Coast piano star Vijay Iyer shares his musical inspirations – including a haunting recording by the late American pianist Geri Allen and a head-spinning Michael Jackson track.

Vijay Iyer is one of the most celebrated jazz musicians of his generation, known for his touch, rhythmic ingenuity and wide-ranging influences – which include hip hop, R&B and Indian Carnatic music. He was named Jazz Artist Of The Year in DownBeat Magazine’s Critics Poll 2018 – the third time he has won the award.

Also in the programme, young saxophonist Camilla George, a rising star in the UK, joins us in the studio to play music from her forthcoming album, The People Could Fly. Born in Nigeria but based in London, Camilla’s music takes inspiration from both of these backgrounds as well as her time spent playing with the long-running Jazz Jamaica group. Plus presenter Kevin Le Gendre plays a mix of classic tracks and the best new releases.

Produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.

Sarah Walker’s Sunday morning selection includes Debussy’s Suite Bergamasque. There’s also music by Verdi, Villa-Lobos, and Schubert. This week’s Sunday Escape is the Irish Rhapsody No 4 by Charles Villiers Stanford.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0000d5c)
Bella Hardy

Michael Berkeley’s guest is Bella Hardy, a passionate interpreter of traditional songs who has also blossomed into an accomplished songwriter, drawing on the Peak District, where she grew up, as well as influences from as far away as Nashville and China.

Despite being only in her early thirties Bella has nine acclaimed solo albums to her name. She was part of the first - and highly memorable - Folk Prom in the Albert Hall in 2008 and she’s held the title of BBC Radio 2 Folk Singer of the Year.

Bella talks to Michael about her passion for storytelling, which is reflected in her love of opera as well as traditional songs – we hear both an aria from Maria Callas and an unaccompanied folk song by Oxfordshire glover Freda Palmer, recorded in the 1950s.

She talks about learning to play music by ear; her teenage years playing festivals in a folk band; and the challenges and satisfactions of running her own record label – and raising money to produce her albums through internet crowd funding.

A contemporary carol by Philip Stopford illustrates Bella's love of community singing, and her many inspirations are reflected in her choice of music played on instruments as diverse as the English accordion and a form of Chinese lute called the pipa.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b03vd58l)
Bach's Art of Fugue

Lucie Skeaping takes expert advice from Simon Heighes to explore the background, purpose and music of JS Bach's last great masterpiece - The Art of Fugue.

At the end of his life Johann Sebastian Bach set out to create a great summary of his thoughts and ideas about an intellectual musical form he'd made very much his own - the fugue. The result is the "Art of Fugue" which he left unfinished at his death - or did he? How should we regard this work? Was it intended for performance and if so, how? Who was it written for?

Lucie pulls together various recordings of the work and, in conversation with Bach expert Simon Heighes, unpicks some of the thinking behind this extraordinary composition.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0000d5h)
Maxing out on Minimalism

Less really is more on today’s The Listening Service: we’re maxing out on minimalism, that most popular but also most divisive and most misunderstood of all 20th century musical movements. Music that either makes you bliss out or brings you out in hives - it's the sound of that rhythmic repetitive music by a quartet of American composers - Steve Reich, Philip Glass, LaMonte Young, and Terry Riley, who have defined the movement, the style, even the genre of minimalism. Take a chord, a pattern, a handful of notes - and repeat them - and repeat again…and again...

What is Minimalism in music and why should you listen to it?


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0000d5k)
Out of the mouths of babes

Lindsey Marshal and Richard Harrington are the readers in a programme that explores the mysterious link between wisdom and innocence. As well as often making us smile with what they say, children sometimes come out with surprisingly perceptive comments that can elude even the most intelligent adults. It is as if, in some way, there were a relationship between wisdom and innocence. This relationship has been explored at length in literary and televisual/cinematic narratives where children outwit the grown-ups, usually in a comic manner, but occasionally it also presents itself in extraordinary real-life characters, such as Anne Frank.

Lindsey Marshal has performed leading roles in many theatre productions, including alongside James McAvoy in the 2009 West End production Three Days of Rain, and in Greenland at the National Theatre. She also appeared in The Hours, BBC period drama Garrow's Law, and most recently in the TV series Trauma. Richard Harrington has had starring roles in Hinterland, Bleak House, Jimmy McGovern's Gunpowder, Treason & Plot, and Gavin Claxton's comedy feature film The All Together.

Producer’s note (Dominic Wells)

Earlier this year my life was turned upside down with the arrival of my son, whose voice opens this edition of Words and Music: Out of the Mouths of Babes. This phrase (biblical in origin) refers to surprisingly insightful words of wisdom uttered by the young, and while I can’t pretend my son’s brief contribution offers anything especially wise, it seemed like a good way to start. Thomas Traherne’s depiction of the infant Christ coming into the world provides a rather more profound statement, as does the child Christ, who appears to the Selfish Giant in Oscar Wilde’s children’s story, promising solace to the reformed character. On a lighter note there’s Arthur Weir’s amusing account of how a baby, simply by gurgling and giggling, can outwit a supposedly clever, powerful, magical creature. The magic continues courtesy of the trio of spirit children in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, guiding various characters along the right path. Similarly, in the TV series Stranger Things, it is invariably the kids who demonstrate greater wisdom than the grown-ups. But the relationship between wisdom and innocence is not limited to children, and we momentarily consider its adult counterparts through two historical archetypes: the Wise Fool (a favourite Shakespearean character) and the Wise Virgin, who finds voice in the music of the extraordinary 12th-century composer, poet and mystic, Hildegard of Bingen. The final reading and music ties all three of these elements together with an excerpt from the very last entry in the diary of Anne Frank, whose level of perception – not only about others, but also about herself – reflects a wisdom far beyond her years.

The Nature of Creativity

Writer and producer Mary Colwell explores the relationship between nature and creativity, and asks, as nature disappears, are we compromising our ability to express ourselves in art, music and literature? Since the 1970s the world has lost half of the mass of wildlife on earth, so is this affecting human creativity?

The opening to Beethoven’s ground-breaking, 5th piano concerto starts with a piano imitation of the call of an Ortolan bunting. It is tiny, weighing just a few grams, but its song is powerful. Nature was a vital source of inspiration to him.

From the earliest times humanity has always woven nature into the very fabric of our cultural, spiritual and scientific lives. Nature has acted both as a source for inspiration, but also as a metaphor, allowing us to be more creative and expanding our understanding of ourselves.

The mysterious cave paintings, from as early as 30,000 years ago hint at a religious association with animals, where the veil between the real and spiritual was thin and insubstantial. For the ancient Greeks birds are especially commonly depicted in frescoes. plays, idioms similes and plays. Welsh storyteller, Dafydd Davies Hughes, describes how ancient tales, predating the Romans, used animals to tell us about morality and to instil social norms.

But does the lessening of nature in our lives mean we are becoming less creative? Simon Colton, Professor of computational Creativity at Falmouth University believes we are just as creative as ever, and new technology is allowing us even greater expression. Prof Vincent Walsh believes we are in an extraordinarily rich, creative age; “you could argue that as we have become more urban, our creativity has expanded.”

The Nature of Creativity is a rich and thought-provoking programme that presents new and challenging ideas about our relationship with the natural world. It is a Reel Soul Movies production for BBC Radio 3.

Of a Lifetime

Part of Radio 3’s showcase of new audio plays at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Recorded with an audience at the BBC’s newly created pop-up drama studio at the Summerhall arts venue.

What makes a true friendship? What do women in their mid 20s really think about each other? In an era of increasing identity politics and the coming of age of the #MeToo generation, Lulu Raczka’s bold new drama is an exciting and insightful exploration of two young women’s bonds. Whilst on a trip across Europe, Kaela and Georgia look back at their younger selves and how their friendship has changed. Eventually, Georgia reveals an incident of sexual violence that at the time, Kaela was unable to fully understand. With hindsight, the two women are able to acknowledge the impact of the incident on them both and move forward. With moments of warmth, humour and honesty, Of a Lifetime offers a unique and touching portrait of a younger generation of women, and the strength they draw from female friendship.

Lulu Raczka is an award-winning young playwright and Company Director of Barrel Organ Theatre, with whom she worked on her first play ‘Nothing’. ‘Nothing’ was awarded The Sunday Times Playwriting Award as well as the National Student Drama Festival Award for Creative Risk. Lulu’s new play ‘A Girl in School Uniform (Walks into a Bar)’ was first produced West Yorkshire Playhouse in 2017 and has just been produced at the New Diorama Theatre. She is currently writing an episode of Frank Spotnitz’s new series ‘Medici: Masters of Florence’, starring Dustin Hoffman and Richard Madden, for Lux Vide and Netflix. Lyn Gardner has described Lulu as ‘A voice so distinctive and fully formed it's hard to believe she's so young’.

The Blackwood

the house of rain
has sixty rooms

‘The Blackwood’, a new drama born out of Jacob Polley’s award-winning book Jackself, grows a new branch of the story of boyhood friends in a world both recognisably modern as well as starkly folkloric and weird. It recounts the journey of two boys through spaces real and rumoured, through the great forest of Blackwood, where voices and music weave alternative histories of boyhood, troubled friendship and the north of England. As well as a moving drama, The Blackwood is a haunting ‘landscape in noise’, created by musician and sound designer John Alder.

A new comedy by Karen Laws about the philosophy of sound. Do we all hear things the same way? Can we be tricked into hearing what isn’t there? And will sound engineer Ben get trespasser Isla out of his studio, or will she bring him to his senses? Ben is appalled to find an intruder working his desk in the studio he’s hired by the hour. She needs to go! But Isla is a free spirit, breaking in where she can to mix her pieces of sound art. Ben questions her right to be there: Isla questions Ben’s right to ‘own’ sound. When she plays him something, have they really heard the same thing? Are our senses objective or do we hear what we want through our own reality tunnels? Come and join award-winner Sarah Miele as Isla and Sam Newton as Ben (Toast, Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time) and explore your very own reality tunnel.

This Magical Hour

Following the great success of the first series of her late night show "Unclassified", Elizabeth Alker returns with another run of six programmes.

Settling back into this magical last hour, the last one of of the weekend, Elizabeth will usher listeners past midnight with more blissful, brand new and unconventional music.

The first ever radio play of a brand new work for solo violin by Edmund Finnis, performed by Daniel Pioro brings shimmering, cyclical patterns of sound moving in and out of focus, James McVinnie creates a musical trick with a 17th Century organ, Anna Meredith's response to Vivaldi's The Seasons results in a sublime call and response through the centuries and new work from Aphex Twin whets the appetite for a rare performance in Bilbao.

"Unclassified" is a home for composers who are exploring new musical terrain and bringing back all kinds of shimmery, glitchy, expansive and joyful sounds from their sonic travels. Musicians who might have formal classical training or who are inspired by traditional classical music but who are blurring the lines between what is classical music and what is pop, rock or new experimental music.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b084vsf4)
Francesca Caccini and Her Circle
Honoured by the King of France

King Henry IV invites Francesca Caccini and her family to France to perform at court.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn’t necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini was born in 1587. Her father Giulio was a composer and her mother a singer, both employed at the Medici court in Florence. Many pupils would come to the Caccini household to be taught by Giulio, and when he recognised his daughter’s talents, he made sure Francesca was educated well. Francesca Caccini’s first performance before court as a singer was in 1600, in her father’s opera The Abduction of Cephalus. Giulio’s music was put in the shade by another opera performed just a few days earlier, Euridice by Jacopo Peri. These celebrations at the Medici court were for the forthcoming wedding of Henry IV of France, to Marie de Medici. They evidently went well, for the Caccini family soon received an invitation to go to perform in France for the King.

Holst’s Egdon Heath evokes the world of Thomas Hardy’s major works, a place ‘accordant with man's nature – neither ghastly, hateful, nor ugly; … but, like man, slighted and enduring’. Britten’s symphony, by contrast, reflects on ‘the progress of winter to spring and the reawakening of the earth and life’.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0000d3f)
A Bard's Eye View of Wales
Dinogad's Jerkin – The oldest lullaby in Britain

The history of the Welsh people, from the year six hundred to the present, can be traced through poetry - there has not been one generation in that time in which poets haven't kept a record. In this series of Essays, poet and musician Twm Morys brings his personal perspective to five stories looking at aspects of the history of Wales over several centuries, following the fortunes of Welsh figures both eminent and ordinary.

In the first essay, Dinogad's Jerkin, he tells the story of the oldest lullaby in Britain, sung by a mother to her son in Borrowdale in the Lake District at the end of the 7th century. It was preserved in a medieval manuscript which reveals that it was in the Welsh language, throwing a strange light on the history of England.

In the second essay Twm follows the very different fates of two famous Welshmen during the First World War - David Ivor Davies and Ellis Humphrey Evans. From opposite ends of Wales geographically and economically, the former became known as Ivor Novello and thanks to his contacts not only survived the war but was made famous by it. The latter was a poet known as Hedd Wyn, who became the figurehead for Wales' experience of the war: he was killed within hours of going into action on the first day of the Battle of Passchendaele.

‘Jack Ystumllyn’, or 'A victory over racism in 18th century Criccieth', looks into the experiences of an African man in North Wales, and the stories the community told about how he came to be there. The only black man anyone had ever come across, it seems he may have been an escaped slave, and Jack overcame prejudice to become an extremely popular and respectable man.

Twm was brought up in the same village as Lloyd George, and in the essay 'Why the Lloyd George museum is so small' (Twm worked in the museum for a while), he explains that the former prime minister is not fondly remembered there. Some think that Lloyd George betrayed his country's cause in order to further himself in England and the Empire, others that his behaviour during the First World War was warmongering (he personally gave many speeches recruiting young welsh men to the army). Twm recalls that a filthy limerick was found in Lloyd George's wallet at the time of his death, and that as a museum assistant, it wasn't the done thing to draw attention to the verse.

In the final essay 'Saint Teilo - a surplus of arms' Twm delves into the cultural links between Brittany and Wales, drawing on his experience of living there for ten years. Of this he says that speaking Breton was like speaking Welsh after taking some psychedelic drug, and living there was like a Wales where Methodist chapels never happened. St Teilo fled to Brittany with a band of monks in the 6th century to escape the plague, and during this time tamed a fierce dragon and chained it to a rock in the sea. Twm explains how a church in Brittany manages to claim that they hold a hallowed relick of the Welsh Saint - his arm and hand, encased in silver - even though he returned to Wales to die.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b084vw4n)
Francesca Caccini and Her Circle
Employed by the Grand Duchess

Francesca Caccini receives her first appointment at the Medici Court, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn’t necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini and her family were well received at the French court and King Henry IV declared that Francesca was the best singer in all of France. An offer was made to Giulio Caccini for Francesca and her sister to remain in France, but their father was keen that the entire family should return to Florence. Once back in Italy Giulio wasted no time in promoting the family’s success in France, in order to secure Francesca’s future. By 1607 she received her first official appointment as a musician to the Medici court which was then largely controlled by the Grand Duchess, Christine de Lorraine. Upon Francesca’s appointment, the Grand Duchess arranged a marriage for her new employee to a singer called Giovanni Battista Signorini. Caccini’s contract to the Medici gave her many responsibilities, including performing as a singer and as an instrumentalist both at court and for church services, composing new music and preparing it for performances, as well as teaching music to some of the Medici children.

Recorded over the weekend at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, the Aurora Orchestra performing HK Gruber's Frankenstein!!, inspired by Mary Shelley's novel, and Beethoven's 5th Symphony, played from memory, under the baton of conductor Nicholas Collon.

Part of the Orchestral Theatre series at the QEH, the performance takes elements from the early 19th-Century Parisian theatrical genre called phantasmagoria, where optical illusions, ghostly projections and eerie sound effects combined for a terrifying experience. This concert presents a modern-day phantasmagoria inspired by two early romantic masterpieces, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, as seen by Austrian contemporary composer HK Gruber, and Beethoven's 5th Symphony. Directed by Jane Mitchell, whose original concept this is, the event also includes surreal narrations by chansonnier Marcus Farnsworth.

What St Augustine teaches us

Anne McEvoy and guests explore ideas of tryanny, martyrdom, sin and grace. April De Angelis has relocated a Lope De Vega play to contemporary India, and a backdrop of political unrest. The original Fuenteovejuna was inspired by an incident in 1476 when inhabitants of a village banded together to seek retribution on a commander who mistreated them. The Spanish Baroque artist and printmaker, Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652) is known for his depictions of human suffering, a popular subject for artists during the Catholic Counter-Reformation. The curator Xavier Bray discusses this savage imagery and the inclusion of tattooed human skin in the exhibition. Historian Gillian Clark and theologian John Milbank discuss the legacy of Augustine of Hippo.

The Village runs at the Theatre Royal Stratford East from 7 Sep - 6 OcT 2018 written by April De Angelis and directed by Nadia Fall.
Ribera: Art of Violence runs at Dulwich Picture Gallery from Sept 26th to Jan 27th 2019.

The history of the Welsh people, from the year six hundred to the present, can be traced through poetry - there has not been one generation in that time in which poets haven't kept a record. In this series of Essays, poet and musician Twm Morys brings his personal perspective to five stories looking at aspects of the history of Wales over several centuries, following the fortunes of Welsh figures both eminent and ordinary.

In the second essay Twm explores a tradition that was preserved for more than a thousand years in Wales - that of farmhands singing songs to their oxen

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle
Caccini goes into print

Francesca Caccini publishes her first and only collection of music, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn’t necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time.

This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

In 1612 Francesca Caccini’s fame as a musician was spreading far and wide, and requests were made to the Medici court to borrow her for short periods. These requests were denied and, in a bid to retain Caccini’s services in Florence, the Medici raised her salary making her the highest paid musician at the Florentine court. By 1614 investment was made locally in developing printing opportunities, and composers soon rushed to bring out their works in print including Francesca’s father Giulio, and also Marco da Gagliano. A few years later in 1618, Francesca Caccini brought out her own collection of music in print. She intended this to be the first of many, but her Medici employers forbade her to publish again. Caccini was contracted as a musician, a servant, and she was to do as she was told.

A Bard's Eye View of Wales
Saint Teilo - A Surplus of Arms

Twm Morys delves into the cultural links between Brittany and Wales, and looks into the story of St Teilo.

Drawing on his experience of living in Brittany for ten years, Twm says that speaking Breton was like speaking Welsh after taking some psychedelic drug, and living there was like a Wales where Methodist chapels never happened. St Teilo fled to Brittany with a band of monks in the 6th century to escape the plague, and during this time tamed a fierce dragon and chained it to a rock in the sea. Twm explains how a church in Brittany still manages to claim that they hold a hallowed relic of the Welsh Saint - his arm and hand, encased in silver - even though he returned to Wales to die.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b084vw50)
Francesca Caccini and Her Circle
Music as propaganda

Francesca Caccini’s music is used as a political weapon by the Medici, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn’t necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini’s court obligations in Florence were highly demanding. By 1619 she was writing to the court officials complaining that her recent workload had been very great with teaching, performing and composing. Not only was she busy working, but in 1622 Caccini also became a mother. Just a few years later Caccini would receive a commission to write a stage work, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina, that would immortalise her in the future as the first women to compose an opera. Although the work may not be an opera, it was a work of sheer spectacle and was intended to demonstrate the power of the Medici women at that time. This stage work became very popular in its day, and was even translated into Polish.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0000d8m)
A Bard's Eye View of Wales
Jack Ystumllyn - A victory over racism in 18th century Cricieth

The history of the Welsh people, from the year six hundred to the present, can be traced through poetry - there has not been one generation in that time in which poets haven't kept a record. In this series of Essays, poet and musician Twm Morys brings his personal perspective to five stories looking at aspects of the history of Wales over several centuries, following the fortunes of Welsh figures both eminent and ordinary.

In his fourth essay this week, Twm looks into the experiences of an African man in North Wales in the 1770s, and the stories the community told about how he came to be there. The only black man anyone had ever come across in Cricieth at that time, it seems Jack Ystumllyn may have been an escaped slave, who overcame prejudice to become an extremely popular and respectable man.

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle
A Lifetime of Service

Francesca Caccini is denied her freedom by the Grand Duchess Christine de Lorraine, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn’t necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall’isola d’Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini’s first husband died in 1626, which left her future and the future of her daughter in a precarious state. She decided to marry again, and this time to a man of property, Tommaso Rafaelli, a minor nobleman of Lucca. Although there was a further child, this time a son, the marriage only lasted a short time as her second husband died in 1630. Francesca Caccini was now a woman of some property, and she lobbied the Medici court to relinquish any rights of custody to her daughter Margherita. As Francesca was employed by the Medici when her daughter was born, with the death of Caccini’s second husband, the supervision of Margherita reverted to the Medici court. Caccini’s appeal was accepted. She and her family soon returned to Florence to work for the ailing Grand Duchess Christine de Lorraine. However, Francesca’s second petition to the Grand Duchess to be made a lady of the court, was refused. Caccini remained a servant until her death.

Poet and performer Travis Alabanza reads from their debut chapbook 'Before I Step Outside You Love Me', and discusses how to make the streets as safe a place as the stage.

The Octavia poetry collective was put together by Rachel Long, who is joined by just a few of its talented members - Amina Jama & Victoria Adukwei Bulley. The podcast edition of the programme contains an exclusive performance from Sunayana Bhargava.

Joelle Taylor

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0000fnw)
A Bard's Eye View of Wales
Why the Lloyd George museum is so small

Twm Morys was brought up in the same village as Lloyd George, and in the essay 'Why the Lloyd George museum is so small' (Twm worked in the museum for a while), he explains that the former prime minister is not fondly remembered there. Some think that Lloyd George betrayed his country's cause in order to further himself in England and the Empire, others that his behaviour during the First World War was warmongering (he personally gave many speeches recruiting young welsh men to the army). Twm also recalls that a filthy limerick was found in Lloyd George's wallet at the time of his death, and that as a museum assistant, it wasn't the done thing to draw attention to the verse.

Producer: Megan Jones for BBC Wales
