9.30am – Building a Library – David Owen Norris on Vaughan Williams’s ‘On Wenlock Edge’

Vaughan Williams' song cycle, On Wenlock Edge, was premiered in London in November 1909 and sets six poems from the Victorian poet A. E. Housman's 1896 collection, A Shropshire Lad. His orignal setting of the Housman poems was particularly novel because of the scoring for tenor, piano and string quartet and, in 1924, he made an orchestral version of the cycle. The six poems from A Shropshire Lad that Vaughan Williams set are On Wenlock Edge, From Far, from Eve and Morning, Is My Team Ploughing, Oh, When I Was in Love with You, Bredon Hill, Clun.

Hearing Voices

Presented by Kate Molleson

Kate meets the multiple award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook at her home studio. The creator of music for stage and screen, Jocelyn's film scores include Eyes Wide Shut, The Merchant of Venice, and her latest, The Wife, starring Glenn Glose. Her many collaborations include with the choreographer Akram Khan, whose Dust is at Sadler's Wells this month. Kate also hears about Jocelyn's trilogy of deeply personal works about mental health.

French conductor Sonia Ben Santamaria talks about her mission to address gender imbalance in classical music with her new ensemble, the Glass Ceiling Orchestra, and Kate considers the proposals for Edinburgh's new concert hall, the IMPACT Centre, with Herald journalist Neil Cooper and folk singer Karine Polwart. On the banks of the Thames, Kate meets Ruth Mariner and Sarah Dacey, the director and composer behind Liquid History, an opera based on the stories of objects found along the river's banks. And Laura Tunbridge on her new book, Singing in The Age of Anxiety: Lieder Performances in New York and London between the World Wars.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0000h8s)
Vocalist Nora Fischer with a mesmerising playlist

Singer Nora Fischer remembers her experience as a child watching her father Ivan Fischer conduct a studio recording of Brahms’ Hungarian Dances. She goes on to convey the ‘creepy intensity’ of the opening of Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto and thrills to the ecstatic build-up of Steve Reich’s Tehillim.

Nora also brings the Italian baroque to the 21st century in two very different performances of the same song by Antonio Cesti.

At 2 o’clock Nora’s Must Listen piece features a group of voices doing all sorts of bizarre, beautiful and mesmerising things.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0000h8z)
Verdi's Falstaff

Verdi's final opera, Falstaff, in a performance from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden starring Bryn Terfel.

After a string of successful operatic tragedies and melodramas, Verdi took his final leave of the stage with a quicksilver comedy that casts a wise but wry glance at the foibles of human nature. Falstaff, the fat knight, is full of vanity and self-deceit; but his attempts to seduce the merry wives of Windsor are carried out with such self-aggrandising swagger, confidence and sheer verve that he sweeps all before him. In ripe old age Verdi achieved an Indian summer in which the flow of melody and novel orchestration complemented every twist and turn of Shakespeare's riotous plot.

Presented by Sean Rafferty in conversation with Verdi expert Dr Flora Willson.

SYNOPSIS
Act I
Dr Caius bursts into Sir John Falstaff’s room in the Garter Inn, accusing him of unseemly behaviour the previous night. He further accuses Falstaff’s two henchmen, Bardolph and Pistol, of having robbed him while he was drunk. Unable to obtain reparations, Dr Caius leaves in a fury.
Falstaff informs Bardolph and Pistol that in order to repair his finances he plans to seduce Alice Ford and Meg Page, both wives of prosperous Windsor citizens.

Alice Ford and Meg Page laugh over the identical love letters they have received from Sir John Falstaff.
Ford arrives and learns of Falstaff’s plan to seduce his wife. He immediately becomes jealous. While Alice and Meg plan how to take revenge on their importunate suitor, Ford decides to disguise himself in order to pay a visit to Falstaff.

Act II
Feigning penitence, Bardolph and Pistol rejoin Falstaff’s service. They show in Mistress Quickly, who informs Falstaff that both Alice and Meg are madly in love with him.
Bardolph now announces that a ‘Mister Brook’ (Ford in disguise) wishes to speak to Falstaff. ‘Brook’ offers him wine and money if he will seduce Alice Ford, Falstaff agrees to the plan, telling his surprised new friend that he already has a rendezvous with Alice that very afternoon.
As Falstaff leaves to prepare himself, Ford gives way to jealous rage.
Mistress Quickly, Alice and Meg are preparing for Falstaff’s visit. Falstaff arrives and begins his seduction of Alice, nostalgically boasting of his aristocratic youth as page to the Duke of Norfolk. But just at that point Mistress Quickly suddenly returns in a panic to inform Alice that Ford really is on his way, and in a jealous temper.
The terrified Falstaff seeks a hiding place, eventually ending up in a large laundry basket. Fenton and Nannetta also hide. Hearing the sound of kissing, Ford is convinced that he has found his wife and her lover Falstaff together, but is furious to discover Nannetta and Fenton instead. To general hilarity, Falstaff is thrown into the River Thames.

Act III
A wet and bruised Falstaff laments the wickedness of the world, Mistress Quickly persuades him that Alice was innocent of the unfortunate incident at Ford’s house. In a letter which Quickly gives to Falstaff, Alice asks the knight to appear at midnight, disguised as the Black Huntsman.
Ford, Nannetta, Meg and Alice prepare the second part of their plot: Ford secretly promises Caius that he will marry Nannetta that evening. Mistress Quickly overhears them…

As Fenton and Nannetta are reunited, Alice explains her plan to trick Ford into marrying them. On the stroke of midnight, Alice appears. She declares her love for Falstaff, but suddenly runs away, saying that she hears spirits approaching.
Nannetta, disguised as the Queen of the Fairies, summons her followers who attack the terrified Falstaff, pinching and poking him until he promises to give up his dissolute ways. In the midst of the assault Falstaff suddenly recognizes Bardolph, and realizes that he has been tricked. Falstaff accepts that he has been made a figure of fun.
Dr Caius now comes forward with a figure in white. When the brides remove their veils it is revealed that Ford has just married Fenton to Nannetta, and Dr Caius to Bardolph! With everyone now laughing at his expense, Ford has no choice but to forgive the lovers, and bless their marriage. Before sitting down to a wedding supper with Sir John Falstaff, the entire company agrees that the whole world may be nothing but a jest filled with jesters, but he who laughs last, laughs best!

Michael Craig-Martin

Michael Craig-Martin is one of our most influential artists, celebrated for his huge black and white wall drawings and intensely coloured paintings of everyday objects, as well as his installations, sculpture, and computer-generated works. A pioneering conceptualist, he's always provoking questions about what we understand to be art.

Born in Dublin in 1941, Michael Craig-Martin grew up in the United States but returned to Britain in the 1960s where he's lived and worked ever since. He's had numerous solo exhibitions and his work is in national collections worldwide.

He is Emeritus Professor of Fine Art at Goldsmiths, having taught there for over four decades, and he's been nicknamed 'the godfather of the Young British Artists', who include Damien Hirst, Gary Hume and Sarah Lucas.

He received a CBE in 2001 and was knighted in 2016.

Michael Craig-Martin talks to Michael Berkeley about the parallels between his art and the music he loves, including Satie, Bach, the Dutch composer Simeon ten Holt, and he reveals his long-standing passion for opera.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m0000h9f)
Dhrupad Fantasia - Part 1: Morning

Hannah French presents the first half of a concert from the York Early Music Festival - an imaginary meeting of Elizabethan consort music and Hindustani Dhrupad from the court of Akbar the Great.

This concert, given at the National Centre for Early Music as part of this year's York International Early Music Festival features the Belgium-based ensemble - the Hathor Consort, alongside Hindustani vocalist Uday Bhawalkar and jori player Jasdeep Singh.

"Dhrupad Fantasia" is the imagination of creating a wondrous fancie, a visionary idea or illusion to bring together raga-based improvisations over the idea of polyphonic instrumental music, both rooted in the art music of the 16th Century. This first half focuses on music associated with the morning.

The programme also includes interviews with cultural historian Nima Poovaya-Smith and poems read by actor Art Malik.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08f4px8)
In space no-one can hear you sing...

Space. A place few men or women have gone before ... but plenty of composers have. The universe has inspired musicians for hundreds of years and consequently we all know what space music sounds like. Or do we?

From Holst and David Bowie to John Williams via Ligeti, Thomas Ades and the Beastie Boys, Tom Service dons his spacesuit on a mission to explore why cosmic-inspired music sounds the way it does, and discovers how space science is just as inspired by music as musicians are by space.

En route to the stars, space scientist Lucie Green is on hand to tell Tom the reality of sound in space, while mathematician Elaine Chew helps him uncover the music of the spheres.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0000h9k)
The Plastic Tide

A journey in poetry, prose and music inspired by the environment. 2018 is the year that “plastic” was dubbed Children’s Word of the Year by the OUP, an indication of the young’s awareness and passion for their world. David Attenborough's Blue Planet II focused on the fears of whole ecosystems being on the verge of destruction. It’s unknown how much unrecycled plastic waste ends up in the ocean but research at the University of Georgia estimates between 5.3 and 14 million tons just on coastal regions.

Fiona Shaw and Robert Glenister perform readings where anxiety meets beauty and humour. We appreciate nature through the poems of John Clare and Edward Thomas and the music of Oliver Messiaen and John Luther Adams. Our fear at the dangers facing the environment come in Lavinia Greenlaw's The Recital of Lost Cities Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi and Alan Hovhaness's And God Created Great Whales. Our love of plastics is captured in an extract from Richard Yates' novel, Revolutionary Road, in which his characters drive candy and ice cream coloured automobiles, ("a long bright valley of colored plastic and plate glass and stainless steel"). And a possible outcome of our abuse of our environment comes in Byron's prophetic Darkness, written in 1816 after a volcano eruption cast enough sulphur into the atmosphere to reduce global temperatures and cause abnormal weather across much of north-east America and northern Europe.

The producer is Fiona McLean.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08v8qn4)
Grid

In essence nothing more than the repeated intersection of horizontal and vertical lines, this feature explores the grid as the great hidden device behind art, architecture and urban design, of the musical score - an emblem of modernism and a perceptual model for the digital age.

Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, this feature explores the grid on multiple levels - as concept, as lived reality and art, from navigating the Manhattan street plan to its unfolding across the surface of a painting; its use in the visual representation of music, between stave and note (explicitly in so-called 'graphic' scores) to its presence in political thought and the geometry of the modern metropolis. The grid has been described as a checkpoint of modernism in the 20th century, a contemporary perceptual tool for understanding the flow of information in the present.

This programme flows between these hidden forms and explicit uses of the grid in a way that reflects the subject, allowing the whole to develop a bit like the drawing of a map: the grid as an idea that lies behind the everyday, that informs the way we move, read, see, interpret information and navigate the world, at once physical and virtual. But sometimes it's celebrated outright - once a year crowds gather in New York along the city's principle avenues to cheer 'Manhattan-henge', the moment when the trajectory of the setting sun aligns perfectly, and spectacularly, with the city grid.

There are political dimensions to this story too. The grid is a hidden form of order behind spontaneity, a key organisational device - simple, repetitive and austere but also perhaps consoling in times of political chaos. Mapped grids and city grid plans flourished in the West following the foundation of republics; in painting, during the period leading up to and immediately after the First World War. In city planning in particular the grid represented a set of Utopian choices. In the United States it was tied to mapping on a mass scale, the Jeffersonian gridding of North America, and a positive rejection of the European city model of tangled streets and random circles. The abstract grid would underpin a new civic order, rational and democratic - it has no centre, it belongs to Everyman.

The programme explores the idea that the grid can be invisible or visible, not only a hidden idea or tool but for artists like Piet Mondrian spiritually satisfying in its own right, its simple geometry in theory infinite, extending beyond the limits of the canvas. Talking about the psychological power of grids in modern painting, art historian Rosalind Krauss pointed out that their appeal is based on a rejection of the chaos and the unpredictability we find in nature: 'The grid turns its back on nature. Flattened, geometric, ordered, it is anti-natural... It is an aesthetic decree.' The grid also joins architecture and music, not only in the geometric scores of modern composers like Iannis Xenakis or Morton Feldman but throughout the history of music notation, from the Medieval period onward. It's now the basis for music composition in the digital domain. Today the proliferating networks of the web and production of virtual knowledge have prompted some to argue we're in the middle of a new emergent grid, shaping the world in its image, synonymous with public space.

Moving across fields and practices, this feature shows the power of a very simple idea - so simple and powerful, in fact, it is often (almost) invisible. Contributors are drawn from art history and art practice, music composition, architecture and urban design, typography and modern political thought.

Overflow information

Radio 3 presents new interpretations of two radio scripts by Angela Carter, originally written and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 in the 1970's. Both these scripts embody the combination of stylistic daring, playful wit, dazzling language, and high intellectual seriousness which is a hallmark of Carter's best work. These productions will be introduced by Fiona Shaw, playing Carter, so that she may explain in her own words how she came to write them, and why she felt so strongly attracted to Radio drama as a medium.

VAMPIRELLA, Angela Carter's first radio play was produced by Glyn Dearman, and broadcast in July 1976. As Carter describes it: the "lovely lady vampire' skulks in her Transylvanian castle, "bored with the endless deaths and resurrections", and caged by "hereditary appetites that she found both compulsive and loathsome". A young British officer arrives, who kills her with the innocence of his kiss, and then goes off to die in a war "far more hideous than any of our fearful superstitious imaginings".

COME UNTO THESE YELLOW SANDS tells the story of the painter Richard Dadd, who murdered his father and was confined to Broadmoor, where he created the Fairy paintings for which he is now famous. Carter uses the story, and animates the fairy figures themselves, in order to explore how "the distorted style of the paintings of Dadd's madness, together with his archetypical crime of parricide, seems to be expressions of the dislocation of the real relations of humankind to itself, during Britain's great period of high capitalism and imperialist triumph."

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0000hb6)
Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
In America: A Reluctant Visitor

Reluctant even to visit at first, and once there always more than a little homesick, this proudly Russian composer in fact lived in the United States of America for 25 years, from the end of the First World War until his death in 1943. His life there was principally that of a virtuoso performer, not a composer, and Rachmaninov gave recitals for presidents, recorded discs for Thomas Edison, and felt obliged to rattle off his “hated” Prelude in C sharp minor for concert audiences wherever he went.

Today, Donald Macleod examines the composer’s first concert tour of the states, in 1909, when Rachmaninov was finally convinced to go there by the prospect of purchasing a new automobile with the considerable appearance fees the tour offered. But he was equivocal: despite the tour’s success, American life didn’t particularly appeal, and he turned down offers of more work, returning to Moscow with no intention to go back. Within just a few years, political events would change his mind again.

Alban Gerhardt joins the orchestra for the lyrical and rhapsodic Cello Concerto written while Walton was living on the Italian island of Ischia. John Storgards brings us music of his compatriot, Sibelius after the interval; his Symphony No 2 distinctively Finnish but conceived and first sketched while he was on holiday at Rapello and in Rome.

My Life in Food
Origins

Joanna Robertson's earliest childhood memory is that of the baker calling at noon each day, with a basket full of fragrant buns, cakes and bread. It was the first indication of what was to develop into a lifelong love affair with food.
For Joanna, food has never just been about nourishment. It has shaped her life in highly personal as well as professional ways, with surprising, funny or poignant results.
So much so, that telling her food stories amounts to sharing an intimate and revealing autobiography, with insights into her life, the places she’s lived and worked in, and the people she's met through food. These stretch from Italians who would become a collective of godparents to her eldest daughter, to world class artists and musicians, ranging from Derek Jarman to Sviatoslav Richter.

In the first programme, Joanna reveals how her love of food already manifested itself when she was a child growing up in different parts of the UK.

Joanna Robertson is a journalist who has lived in several countries and is now based in Paris.

Produced by Arlene Gregorius.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0000hbz)
Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
In America: Earning a Living

Reluctant even to visit at first, and once there always more than a little homesick, this proudly Russian composer in fact lived in the United States of America for 25 years, from the end of the First World War until his death in 1943. His life there was principally that of a virtuoso performer, not a composer; and Rachmaninov gave recitals for presidents, recorded discs for Thomas Edison, and felt obliged to rattle off his “hated” Prelude in C sharp minor for concert audiences wherever he went.

Today, Donald Macleod finds out how Rachmaninov adjusted to life in New York. Fleeing extreme socialism, he quickly encountered extreme capitalism: greeted on arrival by a succession of celebrated artists and reporters, the composer was wooed by record companies and piano manufacturers eager for his endorsement.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0000hcd)
My Life in Food
Artists

Joanna Robertson's earliest childhood memory is that of the baker calling at noon each day, with a basket full of fragrant buns, cakes and bread. It was the first indication of what was to develop into a lifelong love affair with food.
For Joanna, food has never just been about nourishment. It has shaped her life in highly personal as well as professional ways, with surprising, funny or poignant results.
So much so, that telling her food stories in these Essays amounts to sharing an intimate and revealing autobiography, with deeply personal insights into her life, the places she has lived and worked in, and the people she has met through food.

In the second programme, Joanna is a young adult. She is now working two jobs in London, involving food and encounters with world class artists, designers and musicians. In Soho, these include Derek Jarman, Howard Hodgkin and Alexander McQueen, while on the South Bank she serves, for example, Karl-Heinz Stockhausen, Pierre Boulez and Sviatoslav Richter.

Joanna Robertson is a journalist who has lived in several countries and is now based in Paris.

Produced by Arlene Gregorius.

In honour of our forthcoming session with modular synth legend Suzanne Ciani, Nick revisits a previous Late Junction session featuring Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, who discovered that by chance, she had moved next door to her synth heroine.

Nick also explores music along latitudinal parallels following Verity Sharp’s new Radio 4 series Sound Lines. Tonight, it’s the 33rd parallel, with music from Damascus and the Ladakh region of northern India.

Also in the programme, Estonian accordionist Tuulikki Bartosik and Japanese saw player Hajime Sakita evoke the sounds of a rain drenched forest.

Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
In America: Homesick Sabbatical

Reluctant even to visit at first, and once there always more than a little homesick, this proudly Russian composer in fact lived in the United States of America for 25 years, from the end of the First World War until his death in 1943. His life there was principally that of a virtuoso performer, not a composer; and Rachmaninov gave recitals for presidents, recorded discs for Thomas Edison, and felt obliged to rattle off his “hated” Prelude in C sharp minor for concert audiences wherever he went.

By 1926, Rachmaninov was exhausted by his schedule as a pianist, and frustrated that he’d not written more music. He planned a year off, to write his fourth piano concerto – but still struggled to make space for composition, lamenting the lack of “quiet” he found stateside, and looking back with poignancy to his former life in Russia.

Thomas Adès conducts Stravinsky, Adès and Lutosławski

The US links the music in this London Philharmonic Orchestra concert conducted by Thomas Adès. From this century Kirill Gerstein is the soloist in Adès's In Seven Days, a retelling of the Genesis story of creation and a piano concerto in all but name, jointly commissioned by the Southbank Centre and Los Angeles Philharmonic. Witold Lutosławski's glittering third symphony, with its typical mix of semi-improvised and highly organised music, was commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. LA resident Igor Stravinsky put his Symphony in Three Movements together from several disparate sources (an aborted film score is the basis of its middle movement), but it nevertheless makes for a satisfying whole: a mature masterpiece full of his trademark rhythmic vitality and ending with a chord straight out of Hollywood or Broadway.

Martin Handley presents live from the Royal Festival Hall.

Camille Paglia is a Professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia whose Sexual Personae: Art and Decadence from Nefertiti to Emily Dickinson was rejected by seven publishers before it became a best-seller. Flemming Rose was Culture Editor at the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten when in September 2005 it published a series of cartoons of Muhammad which caused controversy. The latest book from Slavoj Žižek looks at Big Tech & the impact of the internet.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0000hd9)
My Life in Food
Disorder

Joanna Robertson's earliest childhood memory is that of the baker calling at noon each day, with a basket full of fragrant buns, cakes and bread. It was the first indication of what was to develop into a lifelong love affair with food.
For Joanna, food has never just been about nourishment. It has shaped her life in highly personal as well as professional ways, with surprising, funny or poignant results.
So much so, that telling her food stories in these Essays amounts to sharing an intimate and revealing autobiography, with deeply personal insights into her life, the places she’s lived and worked in, and the people she's met through food.

In the third programme, Joanna is still living in London as a twenty-something. A passionate love affair ends so badly, that Joanna feels food is no longer for her, and she slides into a severe eating disorder. Brought back from the brink, she then designs her own recovery programme: training as a chef, and life-modelling for painters and sculptors.

Joanna Robertson is a journalist who has lived in several countries and is now based in Paris.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0000hp4)
Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
In America: European Vacations

Reluctant even to visit at first, and once there always more than a little homesick, this proudly Russian composer in fact lived in the United States of America for 25 years, from the end of the First World War until his death in 1943. His life there was principally that of a virtuoso performer, not a composer; and Rachmaninov gave recitals for presidents, recorded discs for Thomas Edison, and felt obliged to rattle off his “hated” Prelude in C sharp minor for concert audiences wherever he went.

In his search for the peace and quiet in which he could compose, Rachmaninov spent huge sums on his new estate in Switzerland. The house he built there, Senar, would be his residence for the next few summers, and the place in which he would write some of his most enduringly popular music.

Opera Matinee: Don Giovanni

Georgia Mann presents Mozart's Don Giovanni recorded this summer at the Teatro Regio, Turin starring Carlos Álvarez, Erika Grimaldi & Mirco Palazzi. Daniele Rustioni conducts.

After the enormous success of The Marriage of Figaro, one of the managers of Prague’s Nostitz Theatre commissioned Mozart for another work. He wanted to work with the librettist Da Ponte again who, captivated by the story of Don Juan, was happy to oblige. The action follows the adventures of the roguish, womanising Giovanni, mixing comedy, tragedy and drama with the supernatural as his acts of betrayal and even murder finally catch up with him.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0000hpl)
My Life in Food
Family

Joanna Robertson's earliest childhood memory is that of the baker calling at noon each day, with a basket full of fragrant buns, cakes and bread. It was the first indication of what was to develop into a lifelong love affair with food.
For Joanna, food has never just been about nourishment. It has shaped her life in highly personal as well as professional ways, with surprising, funny or poignant results.
So much so, that telling her food stories in these Essays amounts to sharing an intimate and revealing autobiography, with deeply personal insights into her life, the places she has lived and worked in, and the people she has met through food.

In the fourth programme, Joanna is in Rome. Initially as a young woman, spending a long summer being initiated into the culinary and cultural delights of the city. And later, she returns as a future wife and mother, getting her daily bread from the same centuries-old bakery as Rossini did while he composed the Barber of Seville. When the time comes, Joanna's baby is welcomed by a family far bigger than merely her relatives: the neighbourhood's grocers, restaurant owners and Rossini's bakery who asked to become a collective of godparents.

Joanna Robertson is a journalist who has lived in several countries and is now based in Paris.

Produced by Arlene Gregorius.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0000hpn)
Suzanne Ciani and the London Contemporary Orchestra

Nick Luscombe presents a collaboration session between Buchla synth pioneer Suzanne Ciani and members of the London Contemporary Orchestra.

With 15 solo albums, 5 Grammy nominations and a huge list of composing and sound design credits to her name, it’s no exaggeration to say that Suzanne Ciani is an electronic music legend. Ciani’s music is closely tied to the work of synthesiser ‘founding father’ Don Buchla and in this session she plays the Buchla 200e, an instrument she describes as the “height of modular instrument design”.

In this exclusive session for Late Junction, Suzanne Ciani was joined by violinist Galya Bisengalieva , Robert Ames (viola) and Brian O’Kane (cello) from the London Contemporary Orchestra to rework 4 sequences of music she created in the 1970s.

If you’re listening on headphones, check out the binaural mix of the session on the Late Junction website.

Elsewhere on the programme, Nick features folk from the Rheingans Sisters and new music from Ben Chatwin.

Produced by Freya Hellier for Reduced Listening.

Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
In America: Apple Pie?

Reluctant even to visit at first, and once there always more than a little homesick, this proudly Russian composer in fact lived in the United States of America for 25 years, from the end of the First World War until his death in 1943. His life there was principally that of a virtuoso performer, not a composer; and Rachmaninov gave recitals for presidents, recorded discs for Thomas Edison, and felt obliged to rattle off his “hated” Prelude in C sharp minor for concert audiences wherever he went.

Rachmaninov was slow to embrace his adopted country, never really learning proper English – his correspondence was all translated into Russian – and always looking back longingly to mother Russia, a place now inaccessible to him. But he did come to love the United States and eventually, in the final year of his life, became a citizen. By then he’d become immersed in American cultural life, relishing jazz music and even admiring Mickey Mouse’s take on his ubiquitous Prelude.

My Life in Food
Fate

Joanna Robertson's earliest childhood memory is that of the baker calling at noon each day, with a basket full of fragrant buns, cakes and bread. It was the first indication of what was to develop into a lifelong love affair with food.
For Joanna, food has never just been about nourishment. It has shaped her life in highly personal as well as professional ways, with surprising, funny or poignant results.
So much so, that telling her food stories in these Essays amounts to sharing an intimate and revealing autobiography, with deeply personal insights into her life, the places she has lived and worked in, and the people she has met through food.

In the final programme, Joanna is living in Paris. Fortune has smiled on her in the shape of a second daughter, but when it comes to food, her luck seems to have run out, as neither her childrens' school lunches nor local restaurants' menus live up to Joanna's expectations which had been stoked by food writers of the calibre of Elizabeth David and MFK Fisher whom Joanna read avidly as a teenager. Now it's chips with everything it seems. Fate has one good surprise in store however: Joanna's local baker, where she gets her daily morning bread, has just been crowned the best baguette maker in Paris.

Joanna Robertson is a journalist who has lived in several countries and is now based in Paris.
