9.30am Building a Library: Mark Lowther on Bach’s Keyboard Concertos

Building a Library: Mark Lowther listens to some of the available recordings of Bach's seven keyboard concertos, BWV.1052 to BWV.1058, and makes a recommendation.

Bach's collection of concertos for solo keyboard are the only collection of concertos in his entire oeuvre aside from the Brandenburg Concertos. These 7 concertos, BWV.1052 to 1058, are thought to have been written in Leipzig during the 1730s, using arrangements made from earlier concertos that Bach wrote while he was still living in Köthen. They are amongst the earliest concertos written for keyboard.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (m0000tcc)
Hidden Voices and Blue Force Fields

Dame Sarah Connolly reveals the 'Doctor Who forcefield' method of dealing with nerves on performance days, talks to Sara Mohr-Pietsch about her passion for music education, and describes the experience of being invited to sing in Wagner's Ring Cycle at the famous Bayreuth Festival.

The first black singer at Bayreuth was Grace Bumbry in the 1960s, but it could have been a different story. Celebrating Black History Month, and continuing Music Matters' series of Hidden Voices, Sara profiles the 1860s-born Aldridge sisters. Daughters of the 19th-century African-American Shakespearean actor Ira Aldridge, Amanda was a singer, composer and teacher whose students included Paul Robeson and Marian Anderson, and Luranah, also a singer, narrowly missed out on a career-changing appearance at Wagner's festival in the 1890s. With the music writer Alex Ross and author Louise Hare.

The author Scarlett Thomas shares her playlist for autumn, with music from Schubert to Keith Jarrett via Tom Waits and Beethoven. And Sara is in Ipswich to meet Byron Scullin and Hannah Fox, creators of Clarion Call, an outdoor sonic artwork broadcasting the voices of women and girls as part of the SPILL Festival's commemoration of the First World War centenary.

Scarlett Thomas's autumn playlist:

Schubert - Sonata in C minor D.958, 4th movement: Allegro
Tom Waits - Tango Till They're Sore (from the album 'Rain Dogs')
Verdi - Aria 'Parigi, o cara' (from La Traviata)
Sharron Kraus - All Hallows (from the album 'Right Wantonly A​-​Mumming')
Beethoven - Symphony No.7 in A major, Op.92, 2nd movement: Allegretto
Bob Dylan - Blue Moon (from the album 'Self Portrait')
Keith Jarrett Trio - Autumn Leaves (live recording from the album 'Up For It')


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0000tcf)
Singer Jeanine De Bique’s striking musical discoveries

Singer Jeanine De Bique recalls her debut at the Proms in 2017 which left her feeling ‘like a rockstar’. She also takes us to her homeland of Trinidad and Tobago with sun-drenched music from massed steel pans and a local choir, and wishes her voice would allow her to sing Wagner.

At 2 o’clock Jeanine reveals her Must Listen piece – an anguished aria from Handel’s opera Alcina - and marvels at how singer Renée Fleming captures the sense of Alcina’s betrayal by the man she loves.

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

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (m0000tcp)
Barenboim conducts Cherubini's Médée in Berlin

Andrew McGregor presents a new production of Cherubini's Médée from Berlin Staatsoper, conducted by Daniel Barenboim, recorded earlier this week.

Born in Florence and a contemporary of Mozart and Beethoven, Cherubini settled early on in Paris and created numerous operas for French audiences - including in the style of 'opéra comique', with significant spoken sections in place of Italian recitatives..

The story is a re-telling of Euripides tragedy of the revenge of the enchantress Medea - truly a woman scorned - She is mother to two of Jason and the Argonauts sons, and years before helped Jason recover the golden fleece from Chalcis at the cost of rejection by her own family. Years later, as Jason is about to be married, but not to Medea, and she suddenly appears none too pleased, bent on revenge

Cherubini's focus is the psychological and emotional state of Medea, and this lifts the work out of its own time of post revolutionary Paris, into our own. In this new critical edition, sung in French, much of the editorial work has gone into the spoken sections to make the most of the dramatic situation and the emotional state of Medea.

Andrew McGregor is joined by Professor Sarah Hibberd to put into context Médée against the legacy of French Opera and assess Cherubini's contribution.

SYNOPSIS
PRIOR STORY
Jason set off with the Argonauts to purloin the Golden Fleece in Colchis on the Black Sea. Once in Colchis, Jason and the king’s daughter Médée fell in love with one another. With Médée’s help, Jason was able to pilfer the fleece from her father’s possessions. Once back in Greece, Jason learned that Pelias has driven his father to his death. To punish Pelias, Médée then tricked his daughter into killing and boiling him, claiming that it would rejuvenate him. Pursued by Acastus, the son of Pelias, the homeless couple fled across Greece, now with two children in tow. During their flight, the parents were separated: Jason reached Corinth with his two sons, where he was offered the possibility of marrying into the royal house.

ACT I
Dircé, the daughter of the King of Corinth, fears that Jason might leave her one day, just as he abandoned his first wife Médée. Jason has his Argonauts march and presents the bridal gift to Créon: the Golden Fleece. A stranger appears: it is Médée. Calmly and decisively, she declares that she will prevent Jason’s adulterous marriage. She pleads with him not to reject “the mother of his sons,” but to no avail. When he refuses all responsibility for her and her deeds, she calls on him to choose between her love or her animosity. The argument escalates: both threaten to kill one another.

ACT II
Médée is furious: she has been forbidden all contact with her sons. Créon appears with his soldiers: in response to Jason’s request, he offers her the chance to flee unharmed and promises to protect her children. Médée humbly begs to be tolerated in Corinth, and allays Créon’s mistrust by insisting on her utter helplessness. She now comes up with the plan that horrifies even her: to take revenge Jason’s betrayal not only by killing his wife, but his sons as well. Médée declares that her resistance is now broken. Jason rejects her request that the children accompany her into exile because of his great love of both. Jason responds to Médée’s lament by allowing her to have contact with her children once more before her departure. Médée commands Néris to accompany her two sons to Dircé. They are to offer Médée’s former bridal dress and her bridal crown as gifts, poisoned gifts that are to kill the new bride.

ACT III
Néris has set off with the children and the deadly gifts. A storm erupts. Médée has armed herself with a dagger and admonishes herself to be relentless. But when her children return, she is unable to carry out her intended murder. The dagger falls from her hands. Her rage against Jason and the love of her children are tearing her apart. She orders Néris to bring her children to safety from her. But just as Néris departs with them, Médée regrets her failure to carry out this ultimate punishment of Jason. Then cries of horror and Jason’s mourning of the torturous death of Dircé, which has also killed Créon as well, come to her ear. Médée picks up the dagger and follows Néris and her children. Jason and the people want to punish Médée. Médée tells Jason that her children have been murdered and, declaring that she will wait for him in hell, leaps into the flames now raging in Créon’s palace.


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (m0000tcr)
The Last Elfdalians

Swedish artist and photographer Maja Daniels explores the mysteries of the endangered Swedish forest language Elfdalian. Maja didn't learn the language herself, but her grandparents speak it and she has long been fascinated by its mysteries.

Spoken in the remote forest region of Älvdalen - a place thick with forest and steep valleys - Elfdalian used to be the main language of the area, but Swedish has increasingly become dominant and few young people speak it today.

In a collage of forest sounds and local voices, travelling through Älvdalen, this programme explores some of the mysteries of the language and its links to Sweden's ancient, Viking past. Maja meets up with young people to hear about new efforts to keep the language alive, and talks to older people who speak it as a first language about how it survived while other ancient European languages did not, and what it can reveal about the people and their culture.

Richard Powers

As part of Radio 3’s celebration of forests this autumn, Michael Berkeley’s guest is the American novelist Richard Powers. His latest novel, The Overstory, is his twelfth, and it’s a monumental work which was entirely inspired by trees.

It all started when Powers was teaching in California, and visited the giant redwoods there. That encounter amounted he says to “a religious conversion”. He realised he’d been blind to these amazing creatures all his life. So, to make up for lost time, in his new Booker long-listed novel he gives trees a voice:

"A woman sits on the ground, leaning against a pine. Its bark presses hard against her back, as hard as life. Its needles scent the air and a force hums in the heart of the wood. Her ears tune down to the lowest frequencies. The tree is saying things, in words before words."

Inspired by his passion for trees, Richard Powers has now moved to live in the forests of the Smoky Mountains which run along the border between North Carolina and Tennessee.

"In 15 to 20 minutes, I can be up and walking in these forests that are recovering from a century-and-a-half of logging and see the way that nature persists and transforms and perseveres."

On a brief trip to London, he looks back over a thirty-year writing career in which each novel is more audacious than the last. But one theme runs through all his writing: the power of music, and Powers plays the cello, guitar, clarinet and saxophone. His music choices include Dowland’s “Time Stands Still”, Bartok’s String Quartet No. 4, Bach’s Cantata BWV 100, and Charles Ives’ Concord Sonata.

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

Tom Service is your guide as he explores the magical role of the forest in music, from the Romantic charms of Schubert songs to the nightmarish spirits of Weber's Freischütz opera, and beyond to the symbolic psychological forests of Schoenberg's Erwartung and Sibelius's Tapiola. He also talks to sound artist Jez Riley French about his close-up recordings of forests, which bring us the truly wild sounds of un-romanticised nature.

Foxes and Wolves

We go into the Forest with Red Riding Hood as Alison Steadman and Tim Dutton read from Aesop to Sarah Hall, Rudyard Kipling to Roald Dahl in a programme exploring wolves as both wild and nurturing, foxes as both cunning and prey.
Tying into BBC Radio 3's Into the Forest season, the landscape changes from woodlands to hunting fields to the plains of America in the film Dancing with Wolves and recent attempts at re-wilding which have seen wolves re-introduced to national parks in the USA and the UK. The musical palette moves from Mozart, Prokofiev and Sondheim to Los Lobos and Jimi Hendrix.
But these seemingly similar creatures are portrayed with very different characteristics. Blues singer Chester Burnett was apparently given the name Howlin’ Wolf by his grandfather who would scare the boy with tales of wolves in the Mississippi woods but the Wolf of Jungle Book is the creature who cares for Mowgli. And the cunning fox from Roald Dahl's Mr Fox gives way to the sexy fox of Sarah Hall's short story, which won her the BBC short story prize in 2013, becoming fox fur worn in David Malouf's poem and in the fate of the heroine of Janáček's opera after she dies at the hands of a poacher.

Inside Stories

Author Carlo Gebler has spent nearly three decades working in the Northern Ireland prison system as a teacher of creative writing.

He's been in all the prisons there - including the notorious Maze/Long Kesh H-Blocks - and has done everything from basic literacy to high end literature; letters to victims to Open University essays. As many of the prisoners Carlo has worked with in their cells would testify, he's spent a long time inside.

Now Carlo wants to know if prison arts and education made any difference to the lives of those he taught. He meets the inmates attending classes in the education and skills section of HMP Magilligan on Northern Ireland's north coast. He visits his former boss who each day would tell him his job was not to teach, but to be a human being. He catches up with some of the former prisoners he worked with over many years and finds out what they're doing now.

Looking back at the protocols and practices which characterised his prison work, Carlo asks about the true potential of arts and education when it comes to punishment and rehabilitation.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0000v03)
Dora Pejačević (1885-1923)
Pejacevic’s first Croatian Piano Concerto

Donald Macleod surveys a series of Croatian firsts by Dora Pejacevic

In Composer of the Week, Donald Macleod introduces a first for the series in its history of over seventy years, the Croatian Countess Dora Pejacevic. The life of Pejacevic has been fictionalised into film, and also told in a romanticised biography. In this week of programmes, Donald is joined by Professor Koraljka Koss and Professor Iskra Iveljic, to explore the known facts about the life and music of this Countess and her family. Although Pejacevic was born into one of the most influential aristocratic families in Croatia, she became rather critical of her own class in later life. Through her position she did have the opportunity to study in Germany with noted music teachers of the day, and met and collaborated with some of the literary giants of the early twentieth century. Upon her death at the age of only 37, she left a catalogue of over one hundred compositions displaying a unique voice now largely forgotten.

Dora Pejacevic was born in Budapest in 1885. Her musical legacy of nearly sixty opus numbers, can also claim a quantity of Croatian firsts. There are a number of sources which claim that her Symphony in F sharp minor, was the first symphony ever to be composed in Croatia. This is in fact not true, however it can be considered the first Croatian Symphony in the modern style of the Twentieth Century. When it was first premiered in Vienna in 1918, the conductor at the last minute chose only to perform two of the four movements. The full premiere had to wait two years, which took place in Dresden. After hearing the symphony, one critic compared the sound-world of Pejacevic to that of Tchaikovsky.

Another Croatian first Pejacvic can boast without contradiction, is that she composed the first ever Croatian Piano Concerto. This was the beginning of her ventures into writing for the orchestra, and it was combined with her own instrument, the piano. The work was premiered during World War One, in 1916, and the critics at the time thought it was something of a sensation. The premiere marked the start of Dora’s career as a composer.

Telegraph Wires - Five Views of Ted Hughes
Ted Hughes and Animal Encounters

It's 20 years this month since the death of Ted Hughes, we are still arguing about his legacy. In a new series of the Radio 3 Essay, leading poets bring a sharp eye to the poems themselves, reminding us why Hughes is regarded as one of the Twentieth Century's greatest writers, and exploring how the works match up to, inform and contradict what we know of the man.

Ted Hughes is perhaps best known for his poems about creatures - for poems like ‘The Thought Fox’, ‘Pike’ and for books like 'Crow'. In today's essay Helen Mort thinks about what animals signify in Hughes' work and how they might connect to the way the poet writes about the tricky, mysterious lives of others, whether human or animal.

Recorded before a live audience at the BBC's Contains Strong Language Festival in Hull.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0000v1r)
Dora Pejačević (1885-1923)
Pejacevic’s individual voice

Donald Macleod surveys the development of Pejacevic’s individual voice

In Composer of the Week, Donald Macleod introduces a first for the series in its history of over seventy years, the Croatian Countess Dora Pejacevic. The life of Pejacevic has been fictionalised into film, and also told in a romanticised biography. In this week of programmes, Donald is joined by Professor Koraljka Koss and Professor Iskra Iveljic, to explore the known facts about the life and music of this Countess and her family. Although Pejacevic was born into one of the most influential aristocratic families in Croatia, she became rather critical of her own class in later life. Through her position she did have the opportunity to study in Germany with noted music teachers of the day, and met and collaborated with some of the literary giants of the early twentieth century. Upon her death at the age of only 37, she left a catalogue of over one hundred compositions displaying a unique voice now largely forgotten.

The musical gifts of Dora Pejacevic were recognised early on and encouraged by her mother, Baroness Lilli Vay de Vaya, who was herself a trained singer and pianist. Pejacevic's early works show the influence of Schumann, Mendelssohn, Grieg and Tchaikovsky. Around 1903 when the family moved to Zagreb, Dora started to receive tuition from professors at the Croatian Music Institute. Then from 1907 she made repeated trips to Munich and Dresden where she had lessons with Henri Petri and Percy Sherwood. It was during this time that Pejacevic was also performing chamber music with fellow students and professors in Germany. With such musical stimulus, her music began to change and develop its own unique voice. Her Fantasiestucke Op 17 is considered to be from her middle period, whereas the String Quartet Dora composed the year before she died, not only demonstrates her truly individual voice, but also foreshadowed her own death.

Afternoon Concert with Georgia Mann

Dalia Stasevska conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a concert that starts with Sibelius’s rousing and patriotic tone poem Finlandia. The programme also includes a performance of Helen Grime's Everyone Sang, a piece in which she imagined "the orchestra as being made up of many voices, capable of producing a unified and joyful melody that could also break off into many individual and varied strands of song. The piece juxtaposes a sense of celebratory joy with a sense of melancholy." The afternoon ends with Sir Andrew Davis leading the orchestra with mezzo-soprano Dame Sarah Connolly in Elgar’s equally rousing choral work The Music Makers.

Verdi’s Requiem, live from the Royal Opera House

On 22 May 1873, the Italian writer, poet and humanist Alessandro Manzoni died. In response to his death, Verdi resolved to write a Requiem (indeed the work was once known as the 'Manzoni Requiem'). He had already written the final movement, 'Libera me', as part of a joint project with other composers for a requiem to commemorate Rossini - the ill-fated Messa per Rossini, which remained unperformed until 1988. Taking this conclusion as a starting point, Verdi re-worked the movement and set the remaining texts, including the famously dramatic 'Dies irae', creating what has become one of the most celebrated, fiery and operatic works in the choral repertoire.

Telegraph Wires - Five Views of Ted Hughes
Ted Hughes v Philip Larkin

Poet Sean O'Brien considers the reputations of two very different poets: the raw versus the cooked, the shaman versus the rationalist, Ted Hughes versus Philip Larkin.

It's 20 years this month since the death of Ted Hughes, we are still arguing about his legacy. In a new series of the Radio 3 Essay, leading poets bring a sharp eye to the poems themselves, reminding us why Hughes is regarded as one of the Twentieth Century's greatest writers, and exploring how the works match up to, inform and contradict what we know of the man.

Recorded before a live audience at the BBC's Contains Strong Language Festival in Hull.

Dora Pejačević (1885-1923)
Pejacevic’s dedicatees and performers

Donald Macleod explores those artists to whom Dora Pejacevic dedicated works

In Composer of the Week, Donald Macleod introduces a first for the series in its history of over seventy years, the Croatian Countess Dora Pejacevic. The life of Pejacevic has been fictionalised into film, and also told in a romanticised biography. In this week of programmes, Donald is joined by Professor Koraljka Koss and Professor Iskra Iveljic, to explore the known facts about the life and music of this Countess and her family. Although Pejacevic was born into one of the most influential aristocratic families in Croatia, she became rather critical of her own class in later life. Through her position she did have the opportunity to study in Germany with noted music teachers of the day, and met and collaborated with some of the literary giants of the early twentieth century. Upon her death at the age of only 37, she left a catalogue of over one hundred compositions displaying a unique voice now largely forgotten.

Dora Pejacevic had the opportunity to work with some of the finest musicians of her day, as well as dedicating a number of her works to such luminaries. It was Bela Bartok who hailed the violinist Stefi Geyer as one of the greatest violinists of her generation, but Pejacevic also had a number of her own works premiered by Geyer. Other notable artists and organisations performed music by Pejacevic, including the Dresden Philharmonic premiering the complete Symphony, conducted by Edwin Lindner. Pejacevic also dedicated her Phantasie Concertante to the famous pianist Alice Ripper, although this work received its premiere seven years after the composers death. Her music although largely forgotten today, enjoyed an international platform, with works such as the Slavic Violin Sonata being performed in London during the 1920s.

Crows, Loss and a Violent Melancholia

Poet Karen McCarthy Woolf on finding solace in Hughes' work during a troubled childhood. To her his books were more a mood: a dark and brooding presence but one that resonated. That subconscious memory left a deep and metaphorical imprint that has infused her own work in its relationships with landscape, loss and grief.

It's 20 years this month since the death of Ted Hughes, we are still arguing about his legacy. In a new series of the Radio 3 Essay, leading poets bring a sharp eye to the poems themselves, reminding us why Hughes is regarded as one of the Twentieth Century's greatest writers, and exploring how the works match up to, inform and contradict what we know of the man.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0000v4d)
Dora Pejačević (1885-1923)
Pejacevic and the literary elite

Donald Macleod delves into the literary world associated with Dora Pejacevic

In Composer of the Week, Donald Macleod introduces a first for the series in its history of over seventy years, the Croatian Countess Dora Pejacevic. The life of Pejacevic has been fictionalised into film, and also told in a romanticised biography. In this week of programmes, Donald is joined by Professor Koraljka Koss and Professor Iskra Iveljic, to explore the known facts about the life and music of this Countess and her family. Although Pejacevic was born into one of the most influential aristocratic families in Croatia, she became rather critical of her own class in later life. Through her position she did have the opportunity to study in Germany with noted music teachers of the day, and met and collaborated with some of the literary giants of the early twentieth century. Upon her death at the age of only 37, she left a catalogue of over one hundred compositions displaying a unique voice now largely forgotten.

Dora Pejacevic through her aristocratic connections, had the opportunity to mix with a number of the literary giants of her day. Through occasions organised by her good friend Countess Sidonia Nadherny von Borutin, she socialised with the likes of the Austrian writer and journalist Karl Kraus. Pejacevic set a number of writings by Kraus to music, including her work Verwandlung. It was Arnold Schoenberg who praised this work when he saw the score, but added his reservations that it was by a woman composer.

Another Bohemian-Austrian poet Pejacevic set to music, was Rainer Maria Rilke. Composer and poet only met once or twice, for Rilke was something of a recluse. Countess Sidonie also asked Rilke to look for a good opera subject for Dora to compose, but this didn’t come to anything. Later in Pejacevic’s life, another literary giant she set to music was Nietzsche. Dora was widely read, from the great classics and philosophy, to more revolutionary writings and works calling for women’s equality.

Muses and Sirens

Music depicting Muses and Sirens performed at the 49th Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival in Eastern Finland, presented by Sarah Walker, including Saint-Saëns's 'La Muse et le poète', which the composer referred to as a conversation between the two instruments instead of a debate between two virtuosos. Its improvisational structure is a deliberate strike against some German composers whose insistence on rigid form was, he felt, destroying music’s soul.

Opera matinée with Georgia Mann

The Opera Matinee is Dantons Tod (Danton's Death), an opera by Gottfried von Einem to a libretto on Georg Büchner's 1835 play of the same name. It was first performed in 1947. This powerful drama deals with themes of legalized governmental terror, something which the world at the time realized had not been eradicated with the end of the war. Susanna Mälkki conducts a production from the Vienna State Opera starring Wolfgang Koch and Herbert Lippert.

The rest of the afternoon includes Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No 6 played by the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted Sir Andrew Davis.

Synopsis - Dantons Tod

The opera's first act establishes Danton's confrontation with Robespierre. In the first scene Danton and Camille Desmoulins express their desire for an end of the daily executions to a group of their friends playing cards. Scene two introduces the volatile crowd. Robespierre enters and in an aria sways the crowd and promises more executions. Danton confronts him. After Danton leaves, Robespierre and his colleague Saint-Just decide that he and Camille must be killed. In the last scene of the act Danton announces to Camille and his wife Lucile that he is to be arrested, but he refuses to flee.

Act 2 depicts Danton's trial and death. Two scenes before the Revolutionary Tribunal are separated by one with Danton and Camille in prison. Lucile comes to see Camille; she has lost her reason. In the trial scenes the crowd swings between demanding Danton's death and falling under the spell of his eloquent oratory. At the end, in the Place de la Révolution, the condemned prisoners sing "La Marseillaise" in counterpoint to the crowd dancing the Carmagnole. Danton and Camille are guillotined. After the crowd disperses, Lucile enters and sits on the steps of the guillotine. She cries Es lebe der Konig (Long live the king) and is arrested as the curtain falls.

Ilan Volkov (conductor)

Anarchic, psychedelic, ecstatic: The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Ilan Volkov perform a concert of eccentric musical imaginations.

The concert begins with orchestral music by Frank Zappa: the maverick experimenter. His uncharacterisable work The Perfect Stranger -commissioned by Pierre Boulez-gives us an insight into his unique brain.

This is followed by Julian Anderson's piano concerto 'The Imaginary Museum' - a concerto inspired, in part, by the improvisatory imagination of its dedicatee and tonight's solo performer, Steven Osborne.

And the concert concludes with a sequence of 4 symphonic works by that pioneer of American music, Charles Ives. A composer for whom nothing could stand in the way of his sonic and philosophical imagination.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0000v4x)
Pierre Bastien and Aleks Kolkowski in session

In a world of glowing screens and impenetrable CPUs, Verity Sharp presents a collaboration session where you can hear its inner workings, featuring two artists from the world of mechanical music.

Pierre Bastien is a French composer and experimental musical instrument builder. For this session he assembled large meccano-style cogs to create rhythms, played prepared trumpet recorded onto a wax cylinder, used a fan and shredded paper for percussion and set up a circular system of flutes.

Aleks Kolkowski is a composer obsessed with sound recording and reproduction techniques of the turn of the century. To the session he brought a rare antique phonograph, musical saw, a stroh violin (mechanically amplified by a metal horn) and a 1920s mechanical zither.

Having never played together before the pair spent the day in BBC’s Maida Vale studios to create a sonically rich selection of new pieces exclusively for Late Junction. Also in the show: weird electronic pop music from Sone Institute, a mass for the dead recorded in 1930 and a track by the accordion virtuoso Mario Batkovic.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.

Dora Pejačević (1885-1923)
Pejacevic the reluctant countess

Donald Macleod surveys Dora Pejacevic’s final act of rebellion after her death

In Composer of the Week, Donald Macleod introduces a first for the series in its history of over seventy years, the Croatian Countess Dora Pejacevic. The life of Pejacevic has been fictionalised into film, and also told in a romanticised biography. In this week of programmes, Donald is joined by Professor Koraljka Koss and Professor Iskra Iveljic, to explore the known facts about the life and music of this Countess and her family. Although Pejacevic was born into one of the most influential aristocratic families in Croatia, she became rather critical of her own class in later life. Through her position she did have the opportunity to study in Germany with noted music teachers of the day, and met and collaborated with some of the literary giants of the early twentieth century. Upon her death at the age of only 37, she left a catalogue of over one hundred compositions displaying a unique voice now largely forgotten.

Countess Dora Pejacevic was not at ease with her aristocratic background. Her artistic career and far ranging interests also meant that she began to question the role of the aristocracy, and she also sought equality for women. She did however dedicate a number of her works to her aristocratic family, including the Symphony to her mother, and Libeslied to her sister. However, late in her life in 1921 Pejacevic married an army officer, and moved to Germany away from her family. As if she had a premonition of her future death, Dora wrote a letter to her husband which stated that regardless of their future child’s gender, it should be allowed to be free and encouraged in whatever it wanted to do. Their son Theo was born in January 1923, and Dora died just a few months later aged just 37. Her final act of rebellion was to ask that she be buried not inside the Pejacevic family crypt, but outside of it. Written on the front is simply her first name, Dora.

BBC Philharmonic
Karen Cargill (mezzo-soprano)
Jan Lehtola (organ)
Ludovic Morlot (conductor)

The BBC Philharmonic and Ludovic Morlot present two recent pieces by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho. 'Laterna magica' takes it's name from the title of film director Ingmar Bergman's autobiography. The magic lantern was the first machine to create the illusion of a moving image; by turning the handle the individual images disappear and the eye sees continuous movement. Saariaho explains that variation of motifs at different speeds play a part in bringing this music to life too, which is also infused with a strong sense of colour and varying shades of light. Finnish organist, Jan Lehtola, joins the orchestra for 'Earth's Shadows', inspired by some lines in Shelley's ode to Keats, "The One remains, the many change and pass; Heaven's light forever shines, Earth's shadows fly;". The multi-layered and shimmering textures create a relationship between organ and orchestra that Saariaho describes as a 'fruitful and inspiring companionship'. Another orchestral colourist, Berlioz provides music inspired by characters from further back in history; Karen Cargill joins the orchestra for his overwhelming La mort de Cléopâtre, with its vivid orchestral snakebite. His graphic Overture 'King Lear' opens the second half of the programme.
