9.30am Building a Library: Mahan Esfahani on Franck’s Violin Sonata in A Major

Building a Library: Mahan Esfahani surveys the recordings of Franck's Violin Sonata

The Sonata in A major by César Franck is one the greatest sonatas for violin and piano ever written. It was written in 1886, when César Franck was 63, as a wedding present for the 31-year-old violinist Eugène Ysaÿe. The piece is cyclic in that all the movements share common thematic threads. And it has attracted some of the finest violin and piano duos into the recording studio over the years

10.50am Album Day: Simon Heighes on classic albums

As part of National Album Day Andrew talks to Simon Heighes about the history of the classical record album from its early days as a physical album in which to store your 78s, to the recording of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto by Nathan Milstein in 1948 which was the first classical long-playing record. With the expansion in playing time, artists and producers were suddenly able to play around with themes, concepts and narratives which gave us some much loved albums which remain in the catalogue to this day. They discuss some classic albums of the past and ponder on the continuing popularity of the album in the age of streaming where in theory the whole catalogue of recorded classical music is now at our finger tips.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (m0000qxg)
Prokofiev's War and Peace

Welsh National Opera presents Prokofiev’s epic realisation of the world's most celebrated novel, War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. His drama follows the intertwined stories of carefree Natasha, duty-bound Andrei, idealistic Pierre, dissolute Anatole and their many friends, family and comrades - as they search for love, happiness and meaning in their lives. All this, while Russia herself fights for survival against the relentless march of Napoleon and his Army. When Moscow burns, it becomes clear that nothing will ever be the same again.

Prokofiev vividly immerses us among the complex passions and predicaments of these many interconnected lives. His music is brilliantly scored – by turns, lyrical, violent, playful, ironic and unashamedly patriotic. In the end, he shows us that it is the spirit and resolve of the Russian people that transcends all else.

David Pountney’s production for Welsh National Opera is sung in English and features a huge cast, and expanded chorus. It features a new critical edition of Prokofiev’s original version of War and Peace, edited by Katya Ermolaeva and Rita McAllister, with some additional material from the composer’s later revisions. Recorded on 29th September at Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff. Presented by Donald Macleod.

SYNOPSIS

PEACE
Epigraph: The Russian people prepare to defend themselves.

Prince Andrei Bolkonsky pays a visit to Count Rostov’s estate and meets his daughter, Natasha.

At a ball, Andrei and Natasha’s relationship deepens. Natasha and her father are coldly received by Prince Bolkonsky, Andrei’s father, opposes her match with his son and sends him abroad.

Pierre Bezukhov has inherited his father’s title and fortune, but struggles to understand his responsibilities. His wife Hélène and her brother, Anatole, enjoy seducing others into her loose ways. Natasha falls victim to Anatole’s advances, and rashly agrees to elope with him.

Anatole and Natasha's elopement is forestalled, but Natasha is disgraced. Pierre comforts her, though he is disturbed to realise that he also has strong feelings for her.

Pierre confronts Anatole, and forces him to go abroad to avoid a scandal engulfing Natasha. Suddenly the news arrives that Napoleon has crossed the Russian border. It is War.

WAR
Volunteers and partisans prepare to defend Moscow. Andrei, now a serving officer, reflects on his loss of Natasha. Pierre sees the war as the moment to find his true self. The two men meet among the chaos of impending conflict.

Russian general Kutuzov reviews his troops. Andrei chooses to fight with his soldiers. The battle for Moscow has begun.

Napoleon observes the progress of the battle. It is clear the battle will yield no clear victory.

In the battle’s aftermath, Kutuzov concludes that he must abandon Moscow, and lure the enemy into the trap of the Russian winter.

The citizens of Moscow prefer to burn their city rather than allow it to give protection and nourishment to the enemy.

Pierre plans to assassinate Napoleon. He learns Prince Andrei has been wounded and is being cared for by Natasha in the country. Pierre is arrested and accused of arson. He is ordered to be executed, but instead becomes a prisoner.

Witnessing terrible hunger and violence, he starts to understand his own identity and purpose.

Andrei is delirious and dying. Natasha nurses him. In death they find understanding and reconciliation.

The French retreat through the snow. Pierre is dragged along as a prisoner of war. His friend dies at his side, but the partisans rescue him in the nick of time.

The French have gone and for the Russians the ordeal is over. Pierre has survived, and wonders if Natasha will, after all, form part of his future. General Kutuzov, as always modest and self-deprecating, ends it all with a smile and a joke.

Producer: Chris Taylor, BBC Wales


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (m0000qxj)
Philip Venables, Helga Arias Parra, Wolfgang von Schweinitz

Kate Molleson introduces music performed by the Riot Ensemble and recorded last month at Kings Place London.
Lee Hyla’s raucous We Speak Etruscan is a piece that imagines a new (fake) language, spoken by a heavily amplified bass clarinet and baritone sax; Helga Arias Parra’s meditative Incipit is derived from a quote of Pergolesi which only emerges in its dying moments; and Sarah Nemstov’s Central Park sits alongside Venable’s numbers 91-95, a setting of words Simon Howard.

Also, music recorded at the Book of Hours Festival in Co. Louth during the summer. Wolfgang von Schweinitz's KLANG is a hallucinatory work for string trio and ring modulator performed by Flemish (string trio) Goeyvaerts Trio.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0000r2t)
John Bird

Big Issue founder John Bird talks to Michael Berkeley about the role music played in transforming his life.

For two weeks in 1970 John Bird worked in the Houses of Parliament washing dishes; in 2015 he returned as a life peer.

To say he didn’t have a great start in life is something of an understatement. Born in 1946 in a Notting Hill slum, he was five when his family was made homeless and at seven he was taken into care. Much of his teens was spent in reform school, he slept rough, and he went to prison several times for stealing.

But John Bird turned his life around and has devoted it to fighting for social justice and particularly for homeless people, founding the Big Issue in 1991 with Gordon Roddick. Nearly thirty years on, and with over 200 million copies sold, it’s become a multi-million pound social investment enterprise, and has helped 92,000 vendors earn nearly £120 million pounds.

John tells Michael about the music that cut through his chaotic childhood, and we hear Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, played to John's class by a beleaguered music teacher and which John has never forgotten.

Passionate about making classical music accessible to all and breaking down notions of elitism in music, John chooses works by Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Weber, Wagner and Steve Reich, music he has discovered on his extraordinary journey from reform school and prison to the House of Lords.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0000r30)
The Cowpat Controversy

The line-up of early Twentieth Century English composers includes great figures such as Holst, Vaughan Williams, Arnold Bax and Frederick Delius. Since the 1950's these composers have been dogged by a casual and unkind slur against their work, namely by referring to it as 'cowpat music'. Tom Service argues that, far from producing shallow and whimsical pastoral scores, the music produced by this English movement is among the most profound and communicative of the last century, rarely far from the influence of the two World Wars.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0000r32)
Windrush: Some Kind of Homecoming

70 years after the Empire Windrush docked at Tilbury, Lenny Henry and Josette Simon explore the experience and emotions of the Windrush generation through its poetry and prose, set against music from calypso to classical: Lord Kitchener to Ligeti, Beethoven to Bob Marley and gospel to Errollyn Wallen.

In Sam Selvon's 1956 novel The Lonely Londoners, the hungry Galahad furtively filches a park pigeon for his lunch; Grace Nichols' and Merle Collins' evocative poems express the heartache of long-delayed, never-achieved returns to Caribbean warmth; John Agard and Benjamin Zephaniah are angry and frustrated in the face of cultural appropriation and racism; Floella Benjamin's shock at the cold of her first British winter turns to delight with her first sight of snow. And woven through the programme are the dual threads of John Berry's Lucy who writes home with bewilderment and affection for her adopted home and, from the BBC Caribbean Service, advice to would-be West Indian migrants on what to expect and how to behave in the UK, from appropriate winter clothing to dealing with a dodgy village squire umpire at the local cricket club.

Broadcast as part of Black History Month and inspired by the British Library's free exhibition Windrush: Songs in a Strange Land, which runs until 21 October.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0000r34)
Forests of the imagination

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough enters the forests of our imagination, looking for stories. Alternative realities, holy quests and fairytales hidden among the glories of the Autumn forest.

Despite our evolution in the African rainforests, Eleanor wonders whether it is tales from the frozen North that have given us the most potent forests of the imagination, invading our psyche, inhabiting our stories, inspiring our architecture,

Legendary fairytale guru Jack Zipes introduces us to the darker side of the Black Forest, the central point of European folklore. Eleanor travels to Shakespeare's Forest of Arden, part real, part imagined - a forest full of magic and mystery, where we can become better versions of ourselves. We hear tales from the vast frozen Taiga forest, encircling the world in the North. And in the African rainforest we meet early hominids as they flit in and out of the trees, watching the forest biology shaping what we are and the stories we tell.

On the way we see the strange reality of the forest itself communicating. And as darkness falls, our imagination takes over as we spend a moonlit night in the New Forest, high in an oak tree, in the company of ravens, owls and deer.

Producer: Melvin Rickarby


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0000r36)
1963

What unites the Profumo affair (sex, a Russian spy and the secretary of state for war), the Great Train Robbery (£2.6 million taken from a Glasgow to London Royal Mail train) and the assassination of John F Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States? They all took place in 1963, the same year in which writer Peter Flannery passed the 11+ and his friend next door took his life. 1963 was a pivotal year that changed the world. Peter Flannery re-visits his 11 year old self and remembers the year the world looked on in amazement while failing to notice the death of his friend and his triumph in his 11 Plus.

A new half hour drama for BBC Radio 3 by Peter Flannery, recorded in front of a live audience at the Edinburgh Festival.

Narrator: Andy Clark
Young Peter: Curtis Appleby
Bernard: Ross Waiton
Grandmother and Mother: Jill Dellow

Three Letters

THREE LETTERS, written and performed by Nell Leyshon
'I am trying to remember the young woman that I was before I had children. I am trying to see who I am now… I am a writer and I have a splinter of ice in my heart and in my eye.'
Nell Leyshon performs her own true story of how her reinvention of herself after children is halted by illness. It is a story of the body, medicine, statistics and the NHS; a story of motherhood and being a woman; a story of writing and of speaking with our own authentic voices.

Three letters was written and performed by Nell Leyshon and directed in Edinburgh by Susan Roberts

SUN 22:30 Early Music Late (m0000r3g)
La Follia & Ensemble Polyharmonique

Simon Heighes introduces a concert given by La Follia and Ensemble Polyharmonique at the Regensburg Early Music Days festival in Germany. The music all has a Bach connection, although we’re hardly going to hear a note by the man himself, because we’re entering the shadowy world of ‘Bach the arranger’. Many of his arrangements are now amongst his best-loved works, like his keyboard versions of Vivaldi’s concertos, and tonight we're going to hear his tinkerings with the works of Francesco Durante, Marco Peranda and Francesco Conti.


SUN 23:30 Unclassified (m0000r3j)
Slow Beats, Sweeping Strings

Slow Beats and Sweeping Strings in tonight's penultimate edition of the current series of Unclassified. Elizabeth Alker paces the wintry landscpe of Niklas Paschburg's Oceanic, watching for footprints. There's also music by Sam Underwood, Oliver Coates, Heiner Goebbels, Tashi Wata and others.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09lyttl)
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Beethoven the Pianist

Donald Macleod journeys through Beethoven's early career and the composition of his first piano concerto

Composer of the Week explores Beethoven the pianist and composer for the piano. He became renowned in his day both as a virtuoso performer at the keyboard, and for his ground-breaking works for the instrument. When first starting out on his musical career, he greatly admired Mozart for his piano works, particularly the concertos. Beethoven sought out the older composer for lessons, although these never took place. Similarly to Mozart's own career, Beethoven also made a name for himself initially not only as a composer, but as a pianist, and after Mozart's death was destined to take his place in Vienna as the leading composer there. From the outset, his works for the piano showed great skill and an independence of creative thought. In each programme this week, Donald Macleod explores one of Beethoven's five piano concertos, and the period in which it was written.

L Specific Paragraph:
Beethoven came from a musical family, and the learning of the keyboard was part of his education. From early on, not only did he prove himself to be an accomplished pianist, but it became apparent that he was also destined to be a composer as well. His father sought out various tutors for his son, and Beethoven soon began to delight the Electoral court in Cologne with performances at the keyboard and his early compositions such as the Nine Variations on a March by Dressler. Around the age of thirteen, Beethoven was making early attempts at writing concertos for the piano, including one in E flat. It wasn't until his early twenties that he'd complete what would be deemed his first piano concerto, Opus 19 in B flat major, although it was labelled as his second concerto in print, because of the order in which his early concertos were published.

MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0000r14)
Wigmore Monday Lunchtimes: Nicholas Daniel and Charles Owen

Bach acts as a prelude to this diverse programme of otherwise 20th-century oboe music. Nicholas Daniel, one of the world's greatest oboists, has chosen repertoire from the '20s to the '90s including York Bowen's lyrical 1927 Sonata and Czech composer Pavel Haas's 1939 Suite which reflects its troubled times by including nationalist musical references which would have resonated deeply with his audience. Daniel himself commissioned and gave the 1994 premiere of Julian Anderson's The Bearded Lady which movingly reflects on the tragicomic Baba the Turk, a character in Stravinsky's opera The Rake's Progress.

Presented live from Wigmore Hall, London, by Sarah Mohr-Pietsch.

JS Bach: Sinfonia (Easter Oratorio 'Kommt, eilet und laufet', BWV249)
Pavel Haas: Oboe Suite

Igor Stravinsky: Russian Maiden's Song (arr. for oboe and piano)
York Bowen: Oboe Sonata, Op. 85

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (m0000r18)
Into the Forest

Presented by Kate Molleson

Afternoon Concert goes Into the Forest for a second time this year. As days shorten and shadows lengthen we explore how the dark, mythical forest has touched composers’ imaginations, creating some brooding and heartfelt music. Into the Forest is a year-long theme for Radio 3, as the station explores the enduring and magical influence of the forest on music and the arts.

We begin the week with a concert given by the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Proms in 2015 featuring Jean Sibelius' Tapiola, a tone poem portraying Tapio, the animated forest spirit mentioned throughout the epic poem saga Kalevala. It's followed by Jon Leifs' mighty Concerto for organ and orchestra, with Stephan Farr as soloist. Next comes Anders Hillborg's Beast sampler, a piece dedicated to Sakari Oramo, who conducts this concert, in which the idea of the orchestra as a beast of sound is explored. The concert finishes with Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major. We then travel to the continent for a concert given by the German Symphony Orchestra under David Zinman, starting with Bernstein's Symphony No. 2, The Age of Anxiety, with Misha Dichter on the piano, and closing with Bartok's complete ballet 'The Wooden Prince', in which a forest is awakened by a fairy only to disrupt a prince's attempts to lure his lover.

2.00pm
Sibelius: Tapiola - tone poem, Op.112
Jon Leifs: Concerto for organ and orchestra, Op. 7
Anders Hillborg: Beast sampler, for orchestra

MON 17:00 In Tune (m0000r1d)
Into the Forest: Kai Rüütel, Cristina Ortiz

In Tune begins a week featuring daily, live broadcasts from the auburn forests of New Hampshire, USA, as Radio 3 launches the latest instalment of its Into the Forest season. The autumnal transformation of the red leaves of the New England forests is one of the great natural beauties of the world. Working in partnership with BBC2’s Autumnwatch (who are also broadcasting daily from the same forest), each day on In Tune there will be special performances from New England musicians amongst the golden leaves of the forest, as well as contributions from the Autumnwatch team and a daily dose of slow radio moments captured in New Hampshire by the sound recordists of the BBC Natural History unit. And of course, we also have fabulous live music in our London studio, too: today mezzo-soprano Kai Rüütel and pianist Roger Vignoles perform live for us before their recital at the Oxford Lieder Festival on Wednesday, and pianist Cristina Ortiz looks forward to her recital in London's Queen Elizabeth Hall.

This week of Into the Forest broadcasts culminates in a special live New England concert in In Tune on Friday (see below). Autumnwatch is on BBC2 Monday to Thursday at 8pm.

Into the Forest is a year-long theme for Radio 3, as the station explores the enduring and magical influence of the forest on music and the arts.


MON 19:00 In Tune Mixtape (m0000r1j)
Once Upon a Forest

Once upon a Forest: a mix of music with a poem by Kirsty Logan, specially commissioned for Radio 3's Into the Forest.

Glasgow-based poet and novelist Kirsty Logan evokes the forest as a place of fairy tales - a place where danger may lurk, but also a place where we can reconnect with the fundamental forces of nature. The music is by Beethoven, Berlioz, Schubert and the Carter Family, together with the sounds of forests recorded in Britain and Canada.

Once Upon a Forest by Kirsty Logan:

In a gap amongst the trees
I know the things that I believe

Once upon a time a man sheltered inside a hollow oak, taking from the rich and giving to the poor.
Once upon a time a girl with skin as white as snow stumbled on a house with seven men.
Once upon a time a dragon spent its days gorging itself and its nights sleeping wrapped around an ancient trunk.
Once upon a time a woman, trying to escape, was turned into a tree.
Once upon a time the ghost of a headless woman rode a white deer chased by black hounds.
Once upon a time a boy king was killed and from his grave sprang up a well of healing waters.
Once upon a time an enchantress trapped unfaithful knights in a wooded valley.
Once upon a time a legendary king fought a magician disguised as a bull.
Once upon a time a girl in a red hood met a wolf.
Once upon a time a father on horseback has his son stolen by the erl-king.

In a gap amongst the trees
I see a thing I should not see

It starts with winter.
Three performers in procession: first clad in flowers; second in mourning black; third a white-shrouded ghost. Three stages of life.
Solemnly they circle the clearing.
A sudden crash: all the bells ringing at once.
Skeletons descend. Performers in black with a hodgepodge of bones stitched on, leering and wheeling.
Swans spread wide white wings, luminous as clouds.
Now spring: sex and love and new life blooming.
A person made of flowers is lifted up on the arms of the others. They spin, shedding petals. Fingers touch.
Red to cheeks and lips, a face rich with blood. An open mouth: a rose blooms; a blink: daisies appear.
Now summer: the harvests are in, and we eat.
Apples appear from thin air, thud, roll away.
A dead pig, torn into by animals. The pig moves, turns, stands – maggots, pulsing. In the length of a breath the pig rots, ash and earth.
Now autumn: the land bleeds.
Fingers smear the red of rosy cheeks, a slick throat.
The flowered person is covered in dead leaves. A body lifted and layered with veils of black. Planted in the earth, ready to rise.
The year turns, begins again.

In a gap amongst the trees
I find new things to believe

A forest is a large area dominated by trees.
A forest is a purifier of the air we breathe.
A forest is swaying.
A forest is home.
A forest is scary.
A forest is red.
A forest is dark and deep and hungry.
A forest is watching.
A forest is a place where most things are bigger than you.
A forest is a place of small things, if you know how to see them.
A forest is a company of wildness.
A forest is a dream world layered on top of the real one.
A forest is its own map.
A forest is an island.
A forest is an acorn.
A forest is a doorway.

In a gap amongst the trees
I have found new things to believe

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0000r1s)
Forests
The Wood Beyond the World

Lose yourself in a forest of fair maidens and knights with suspiciously shiny armour. This is a forest where the romantic couplings may be fantastical but the backdrop is meticulously drawn. Each leaf, each clump of moss is taken directly from nature. This is the mediaeval forest as reimagined by late Victorian aesthetes aghast at the grit and grime of industrialisation.

In the first of a series examining the great fictional forests of art and literature Eleanor Rosamund Baraclough is joined by Ingrid Hanson from Manchester University for a walk through the Pre-Raphaelite forest. Their spirit guide is William Morris, the writer and designer who helped create the forest in his works of fantasy fiction such as The Wood Beyond the World, beating a path to be followed by Tolkein, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09m18xb)
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Beethoven the Devil

Donald Macleod delves into Beethoven's early years in Vienna and his public debut there

Composer of the Week explores Beethoven the pianist and composer for the piano. He became renowned in his day both as a virtuoso performer at the keyboard, and for his ground-breaking works for the instrument. When first starting out on his musical career, he greatly admired Mozart for his piano works, particularly the concertos. Beethoven sought out the older composer for lessons, although these never took place. Similarly to Mozart's own career, Beethoven also made a name for himself initially not only as a composer, but as a pianist, and after Mozart's death was destined to take his place in Vienna as the leading composer there. From the outset, his works for the piano showed great skill and an independence of creative thought. In each programme this week, Donald Macleod explores one of Beethoven's five piano concertos, and the period in which it was written.

During Beethoven's early years in Vienna, although he was steadily making a name for himself, his finances were frequently in a precarious state. A work from this period, his Rondo a capriccio, has since earned itself the nickname Rage over a Lost Penny. It was a time when Beethoven was having lessons with Haydn, but the younger composer was already wowing the Viennese with his skills as a pianist. One musician who was pitted against Beethoven at a private party in a piano-playing duel, called him a Devil. By March 1795 Beethoven was making his public debut in Vienna, performing one of his own piano concertos. He was working on his C major concerto in the days leading up to this concert, so it is likely that this brand new work was the concerto he premiered in that concert.

It was written in 1781 when Mozart was staying in Munich to complete his opera Idomeneo.

TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (m0000r92)
Into the Forest

Presented by Kate Molleson

As autumn gets under way, Radio 3's Forest season continues its exploration of how the darkness and mystery of the woods has inspired composers throughout time. Today's journey Into the Forest starts & ends with music by Arnold Schoenberg, with Stravinsky, Humperdinck & Schreker en route.
We open with the BBC Philharmonic under Juanjo Mena performing Schoenberg's symphonic poem Pelleas and Melissande, the story of a doomed love affair which starts atmospherically in a forest. The afternoon continues with a concert given in Portugal by the Gulbenkian Orchestra with Matthias Pintscher as conductor - and also composer, as we hear his piece for violin and orchestra 'Mar'eh', with soloist Renaud Capucon. It's followed by Stravinsky's complete ballet version of The Firebird, a magical creature from the forest. Finally, Schoenberg's orchestration of his Verklärte Nacht - Transfigured Night - is based on Richard Dehmel's poem of the same name which opens with the words "Two people are walking through a bare, cold wood; the moon keeps pace with them and draws their gaze."

Into the Forest: The Bach Players, Merz Trio

Sean Rafferty presents, as In Tune continues our series featuring daily, live broadcasts from the auburn forests of New Hampshire, USA, as part of the latest instalment of Radio 3’s Into the Forest season. The autumnal transformation of the red leaves of the New England forests is one of the great natural beauties of the world. Working in partnership with BBC2’s Autumnwatch (who are also broadcasting daily from the same forest), each day on In Tune there will be special performances from New England musicians in amongst the golden leaves of the forest, as well as contributions from the Autumnwatch team and a daily dose of slow radio moments captured in New Hampshire by the sound recordists of the BBC Natural History unit. And of course, we also have fabulous live music in our London studio, too: today The Bach Players stop off in the studio in the middle of their UK tour to perform music from Bach's A Musical Offering live for us, and young American ensemble the Merz Trio look forward to the Britten Weekend at Snape Maltings this weekend.

This week of Into the Forest broadcasts culminates in a special live New England concert in In Tune on Friday (see below). Autumnwatch is on BBC2 Monday to Thursday at 8pm.

Into the Forest is a year-long theme for Radio 3, as the station explores the enduring and magical influence of the forest on music and the arts.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0000r98)
The RSNO, Catriona Morison and Thomas Sondergard in Grieg, Ravel and Rachmaninov

Newly appointed Music Director of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra Thomas Sondergard begins this evening’s concert with Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suites 1 & 2, before former Cardiff singer of the world winner and Radio 3 New Generation Artist Catriona Morison joins them to perform Ravel's exotic orchestral song cycle Sheherazade. The concert closes with Rachmaninov’s hugely ambitious and passionate First Symphony that he believed ‘opened up entirely new paths’. It was dedicated rather enigmatically to' A.L' thought to be Anna Lodïzhenskaya, the wife of a friend and it shares the biblical quotation 'Vengeance is mine, I shall repay' which was also used to preface Tolstoy's Anna Karenina. We can only speculate as to what if anything was the relationship between the composer and this Anna.

Walk through a dark forest and you can't escape the brooding presence of the Brothers Grimm. Unwilling to stray from the path? A glimmer of sharp, white teeth behind that tree? It’s the Brothers Grimm to blame.

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough is joined by the writer and illustrator Chris Riddell for a walk through the deep, dark Germanic forest of the Grimms' imagination. The company may be agreeable and the conversation fascinating but be sure to leave a trail of breadcrumbs behind.

Analog Africa label founder plays Somalian disco

Max is joined by Samy Ben Redjeb, the founder of the Analog Africa label. Analog Africa celebrates and shares vintage music from across the continent, and Samy brings in some favourite tracks that inspired him to start crate-digging in the first place. His selections include 80s Somalian disco outfit Dur-Dur Band, and Ivorian musician Ernesto Djédjé, who pioneered the ziglibithy style that was popular in the country in the 70s.

We’ll also be airing some low slung, New Orleans rock n roll from the Cramps record collection, alt-folk from Manchester duo The Breath and the sound of the gyil, a wooden xylophone from Ghana, via London based jazz band Vula Viel.

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Beethoven the Rising Star

Donald Macleod surveys Beethoven's growing popularity in Vienna when he needs an agent

Composer of the Week explores Beethoven the pianist and composer for the piano. He became renowned in his day both as a virtuoso performer at the keyboard, and for his ground-breaking works for the instrument. When first starting out on his musical career, he greatly admired Mozart for his piano works, particularly the concertos. Beethoven sought out the older composer for lessons, although these never took place. Similarly to Mozart's own career, Beethoven also made a name for himself initially not only as a composer, but as a pianist, and after Mozart's death was destined to take his place in Vienna as the leading composer there. From the outset, his works for the piano showed great skill and an independence of creative thought. In each programme this week, Donald Macleod explores one of Beethoven's five piano concertos, and the period in which it was written.

From 1799 and into 1800 Beethoven was composing and completing a number of works including a septet, a symphony, and also a set of piano sonatas dedicated to the wife of Baron Peter von Braun. The Baron was involved in allocating dates of usage for the Burgtheater, and on 2nd of April 1800 Beethoven was giving a benefit concert there. This was a period when Beethoven's popularity in Vienna was growing, and he'd soon be asking his brother to be his agent, negotiating contractual deals with publishers. By 1803 came the successful premiere of Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. One reviewer said that this work should succeed even in Leipzig, where people were accustomed to the best of Mozart's concertos.

There’s a shadow creeping across the forest in the works of JRR Tolkien. Nature may be incorruptible but the creatures of the forest cannot withstand the relentless march of evil. Slowly but surely the songbirds and squirrels are replaced by giant spiders, ring wraithes and rampaging orcs. Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough is joined by Mark Atherton from Oxford University for a walk through Tolkien’s forest, uncovering the influence of the woodiest of Norse sagas to the creation of Middle Earth.

Producer: Alasdair Cross


WED 23:00 Late Junction (m0000qjc)
European exotica, electronica and Musique con Crète

This week the After Dark Zone on Radio 3 explores the magic and the myths of forests. Expect Bulgarian celebrations of bursting foliage and Fairport Convention’s take on Flowers of the Forest, an ancient Scottish song commemorating the defeat of James IV in 1513.

Elsewhere we've musique concrète from Crete, or ‘Musique Con Crète’ if you will, from a new electroacoustic project by Greek musician Tasos Stamou. Stamou visited the island over the course of three summers, collecting field recordings, performing with local musicians, producing electronic compositions and gathering old tapes from the region. The resulting work is a sound collage which pays homage to the ancient music of the area via the electronic tape experiments of the late 1950s.

Also on the menu; raucous gypsy jazz by the Cimbalom Brothers, two Hungarian brothers who play the cimbalom, a type of stringed instrument similar to the hammered dulcimer and a sonic reinterpretation of a film by Eastman of the Black Audio Film Collective called Handsworth Songs. This pioneering arts collective was based in East London from 1983 to 1998 and was formed in response to the civil disturbances in Brixton in the early 80s.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09m1dvf)
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Beethoven meets Clementi

Donald Macleod looks at Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto and how the composer found a publisher in London.

Composer of the Week explores Beethoven the pianist and composer for the piano. He became renowned in his day both as a virtuoso performer at the keyboard, and for his ground-breaking works for the instrument. When first starting out on his musical career, he greatly admired Mozart for his piano works, particularly the concertos. Beethoven sought out the older composer for lessons, although these never took place. Similar to Mozart's own career, Beethoven also made a name for himself initially not only as a composer, but as a pianist, and after Mozart's death was destined to take his place in Vienna as the leading composer there. From the outset, his works for the piano showed great skill and an independence of creative thought. In each programme this week, Donald Macleod explores one of Beethoven's five piano concertos, and the period in which it was written.

Countess Josephine had been a pupil of Beethoven's before her marriage to Count Joseph Deym. The count died in 1804, and what followed was a romantic entanglement between the grieving Countess and the composer. Ultimately nothing came of it for the Countess was concerned with the happiness and future of her family. If she had married Beethoven, a commoner, she'd have lost her title and the guardianship of her children. During this period of emotional turmoil Beethoven was working on his Fourth Piano Concerto. It was premiered in 1808 along with his Choral Fantasy for piano, choir and orchestra, and also his Fifth and Sixth Symphonies. Prior to this mammoth concert, in the spring of the previous year Beethoven met with the composer Muzio Clementi. Clementi was on a tour, and was keen to encounter Beethoven in order to negotiate taking on some of his works for publication. Clementi would publish amongst other things a symphony, a concerto and a set of quartets, bringing Beethoven's music to a new audience in London.

THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0000qk8)
West Cork Chamber Music Festival 2018
18/10/2018

John Toal presents highlights from the 23rd West Cork Chamber Music Festival. Featuring music by Mozart, Debussy and Mendelssohn.

Mozart’s Trio in E Flat Major, K.498 (Kegelstatt) begins the programme, performed by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe, with British violist Rosalind Ventris and Irish pianist Barry Douglas. It was recorded in the rich acoustic of St. Brendan's Church, situated on the main square in the centre of Bantry town. That was the same venue for a performance of Debussy’s Cello Sonata, which follows. It was written in 1915: a work using extended techniques which were both innovative at the time and still pertinent today. It is performed by Andreas Brantelid and Nathalia Milsteinthe.

We then move to the opulence and grandeur of the Library in Bantry House for a performance of Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in F minor, Op.80, with the Dutch Dudok Quartet, which closes the programme.

Into the Forest: Quatuor Voce, Peter Moore

Katie Derham presents, as In Tune continues our series featuring daily, live broadcasts from the auburn forests of New Hampshire, USA, as part of the latest installment of Radio 3’s Into the Forest season. The autumnal transformation of the red leaves of the New England forests is one of the great natural beauties of the world. Working in partnership with BBC2’s Autumnwatch (who are also broadcasting daily from the same forest), each day on In Tune there will be special performances from New England musicians in amongst the golden leaves of the forest, as well as contributions from the Autumnwatch team and a daily dose of slow radio moments captured in New Hampshire by the sound recordists of the BBC Natural History unit. And of course, we also have fabulous live music in our London studio, too: today French string quartet Quatuor Voce play live before their recital at Wigmore Hall this weekend, and trombonist Peter Moore joins us to look forward to the UK premiere of James MacMillan's Trombone Concerto.

This week of Into the Forest broadcasts culminates in a special live New England concert in In Tune on Friday (see below). Autumnwatch is on BBC2 Monday to Thursday at 8pm.

Into the Forest is a year-long theme for Radio 3, as the station explores the enduring and magical influence of the forest on music and the arts.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0000qkq)
Max Reinhardt with a mixtape by PC Music’s felicita

Max Reinhardt presents the latest edition of the Late Junction mixtape, this time lovingly assembled by felicita, an idiosyncratic electronic artist who is part of the surreal pop collective PC Music. felicita says their musical mission is to make bold and experimental pop, combining human sensations with musical robotics. Inspired by their Anglo-Polish heritage, they fuse distorted electronics with abstracted Slavic aesthetics.

As a producer, felicita has worked with PC Music heavyweights like Danny L Harle and SOPHIE. As a performer, they describe their performances as theatrical experiments, having collaborated with the Polish dance company Śląsk at Unsound festival in 2016. For their mixtape expect traditional Slavic folk music, avant garde electronics from the Japanese underground and warped ’90s R’n’B.

Also on the programme we dip into the delights of Maurice El Medioni’s long recording career on what is his 90th birthday. El Medioni is an Algerian Jewish pianist and composer who has interpreted a vast array of Arabic music. He is one of the few living artists to have performed with the great Chaabi and Judéo-Arabe artists of the 1950.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09m1fns)
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Beethoven Under Siege

Donald Macleod traces Beethoven's life and career in a Vienna under threat from Napoleon

Composer of the Week explores Beethoven the pianist and composer for the piano. He became renowned in his day both as a virtuoso performer at the keyboard, and for his ground-breaking works for the instrument. When first starting out on his musical career, he greatly admired Mozart for his piano works, particularly the concertos. Beethoven sought out the older composer for lessons, although these never took place. Similar to Mozart's own career, Beethoven also made a name for himself initially not only as a composer, but as a pianist, and after Mozart's death was destined to take his place in Vienna as the leading composer there. From the outset, his works for the piano showed great skill and an independence of creative thought. In each programme this week, Donald Macleod explores one of Beethoven's five piano concertos, and the period in which it was written.

Beethoven thought that his prospects in Vienna were limited, and was convinced he had enemies in the city conspiring against him. The offer of a paid position arrived from the King of Westphalia, so Beethoven started packing his bags to leave. Once they heard news of this, Beethoven's friends and supporters put together a financial package to keep the composer in Vienna. Amongst these friends was the Archduke Rudolph of Austria, whom fled Vienna with the arrival of Napoleon's troops. Beethoven's souvenir to his friend's temporary exile was the piano sonata Les Adieux. During this difficult period of a Vienna under siege, Beethoven also worked on his fifth piano concerto, which was also dedicated to the Archduke. Due to its atmosphere of majesty and heroic grandeur, it has since attained the nickname of the Emperor. Given Beethoven's outbursts of rage against Napoleon and the French during the occupation, it's unlikely he'd have been pleased about this.
