9.30am – Building a Library – Harriet Smith on Mendelssohn’s String Quartet No.2 in A minor, Op.13

Harriet Smith listens to some of the available recordings of Mendelssohn's String Quartet No.2 in A minor, Op.13,

Mendelssohn was still a teenager when in 1827 he composed his 2nd String Quartet in A minor, Op.13, yet he had already written a number of other impressive chamber works including his much-loved and celebrated Octet. This String Quartet No.2, written the year in which Beethoven died, represents Mendelssohn's first mature string quartet. The influence of Beethoven on Mendelssohn can also be heard in this string quartet. It is a highly passionate work and its four movements (Adagio - Allegro vivace; Adagio non lento; Intermezzo & Presto - Adagio non lent) are unified by a theme 'ist es wahr?' (is it true?) first heard in the opening bars.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m00019bj)
Music from the crazy to the sublime explored by conductor David Charles Abell

Conductor David Charles Abell dives into the revolutionary musical language of Leonard Bernstein, learns how to express emotion in Tchaikovsky with a little-known Soviet musician, and remembers how as a teenager he conducted Dvorak’s 9th symphony - in his bedroom.

He also describes what it’s like playing the viola in the centre of Schubert’s string quintet and analyses the musical charm of a song from The Beatles’ Abbey Road album.

At 2 o’clock David’s Must Listen piece celebrates the life of someone who tragically drowned on holiday in Thailand, aged only 19.

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

Matthew Sweet examines Robin Hood's screen history and looks at how screen composers have portayed the legend in music.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m00019bs)
Strauss: Ariadne Auf Naxos

A performance of Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, from this year’s Aix-en-Provence music festival directed by Katie Mitchell.

Lise Davidsen stars in one of Strauss’s most celebrated soprano roles as the mythological Greek heroine in this opera-within-an-opera. Eric Cutler is the Tenor, later Bacchus who leads the mournful Ariadne away to a new life and Sabine Devieilhe delivers the coloratura fireworks of Zerbinetta.

A collision of grand passion and comedy, the opera sets a libretto by Strauss’s long-term collaborator, the librettist, Hugo von Hofmannsthal. The opera began as part of an arrangement by Hofmannsthal of Molière’s Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme in 1912 but Strauss rewrote the work as we now know it for a 1916 premiere.
Presented by Kate Molleson with Sarah Lenton.

SYNOPSIS
The Prologue
At a sumptuous home, two theatre troupes are preparing for their performances: a commedia dell’arte group, led by the comedienne Zerbinetta, and an opera company presenting a serious opera, Ariadne auf Naxos. The Major-domo announces that, to save time, both entertainments must be performed simultaneously.

The idealistic young Composer is loath to permit any changes to his opera. But when his teacher, the Music Master, points out that his pay depends on accepting the situation, and when Zerbinetta turns her charms upon him, he complies. When he fully realises to what he has agreed, he storms out.

The Opera
Ariadne, who has been abandoned by Theseus, laments her lost love and yearns for death. Zerbinetta and her four companions from the commedia dell’arte troupe attempt to cheer Ariadne by singing and dancing, but without success. Zerbinetta insists that the best way to cure a broken heart is to find another love. Each of the four commedia men pursues Zerbinetta.

Naiad, Dryad and Echo announce the arrival of a stranger. Ariadne assumes it is the messenger of death, but in fact it is Bacchus, who falls instantly in love with Ariadne. As Ariadne and Bacchus celebrate their love, Zerbinetta claims that she was right all along.


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (m00019bv)
The Milk Way

Poet Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch and composer Nina Perry create a radiophonic poem that explores the sounds and stories surrounding the flow of milk out of west Wales while the Welsh landscape flows into the sea.

We hear the voice of the path itself “The Milk Walk” (Y Wac Laeth in Welsh) the route that both the milk and the Cardiganshire dairy workers took to London during the last century. We meet Mae, a young girl who took the milk train to work in a dairy in London in the 1960’s, and Jac Alun, a sailor from a local farming family who moved to the city to sell milk during the Depression.

These three monologues are interwoven with personal testimony from those who currently live and work on the edge of the land: Jon Meirion Jones (son of Jac Alun); local farmer Steffan Rees; artist Lilwen Lewis; marine biology student Tom Malpas and Nia Wyn Jones from the North Wales Wildlife Trust.

Stories of migration and milk both past and present are woven into a musical soundscape that paints a picture of humming dairy farms, strange underwater worlds where dolphins echo-locate, coral ticks, and where houses are ‘tippling’ into the sea.

The Path is performed by Samantha Wynne-Rhydderch
Mae the girl by Sara Gregory
Jac Alun the sailor by Matthew Gravelle

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m00019dw)
Rebecca Stott

Rebecca Stott grew up in a community where the following things were forbidden: newspapers, television, cinema, radio, pets, universities, wristwatches, cameras, holidays – and music. Her family belonged to one of the most reclusive sects in Protestant History, the “Exclusive Brethren”, which has 45,000 followers worldwide. How and why she left the Brethren is the gripping story told in her memoir, “In the Days of Rain”, which won a Costa Prize in 2017. Before that there were two historical novels; two books about Darwin; and a body of academic work about 19th century writers. Rebecca Stott is currently Professor of literature and creative writing at the University of East Anglia. It’s a remarkable career for someone who grew up not being allowed to read freely, or even to enter a library.

In Private Passions Rebecca Stott tells the story of how her family escaped from the sect, and how the outside world flooded in, in all its technicolour. The discovery of music was particularly exciting, and she has never forgotten the impact of Rachmaninov and of Mozart. She reveals that after she wrote about the sect, she gathered hundreds of thousands of pages of testimony from other former members, telling stories of scandal and suffering. And she reflects on the lifelong influence of growing up in a religious sect that believed the world would end any minute, and everyone on earth would literally disappear into the air.

Music choices include Pergolesi’s “Stabat Mater”, Klezmer music, Mozart’s Piano Concerto no 21, Rachmaninov, Paul Simon, and Leonard Cohen.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08t15sq)
The Power of Three

From medieval English music to the Everly Brothers - what is it about the musical interval of the third that sounds so attractive? Why does a major third tend to feel positive, and a minor third tend to feel sad? Nature or nurture? And what about their dark cousin, the tritone - the so-called "Devil in Music" - what on earth is that sinister about a couple of notes?
Tom Service is joined by Dr Adam Ockelford to try and find some answers.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m00019f4)
Harlem on Fire

'Fire!!' was a short-lived literary magazine from the Harlem Renaissance published in 1926, created by and for the young black artists of the movement. Featuring poetry, prose, drama and artwork from some of the biggest names of the Harlem Renaissance including Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, Richard Bruce Nugent, Wallace Thurman and Aaron Douglas, the magazine was an explosive attempt to burn down the traditional western canon and replace it with a series of brutally honest and controversial depictions of African American life.

Fire!! lasted for just one issue, yet despite its very brief existence, the magazine is now considered to be an incredibly important document of the Harlem Renaissance, and an early example of an artistic youth rebellion in the African American printed press.

In this Sunday Feature, Writer, journalist and broadcaster Afua Hirsch travels to Harlem to find out all about this long-lost piece of African American history. Setting up in a house previously occupied by celebrated Harlem poet and novelist Langston Hughes, Afua discusses the history and legacy of Fire!! magazine with writer and professor Martha Nadell, and Professor Karla Holloway, whose forthcoming book 'A Death in Harlem' is set during the Renaissance.

Along the way we learn about the magazine's rapid rise and fall, and hear how the reactions to it in 1926 sum up the fascinating artistic conflicts at the heart of the Harlem Renaissance - conflicts that are still extremely relevant today - while young Harlem writers, artists and actors read extracts from Fire!! on the streets of Harlem where the magazine was born.

Producer: Nick Taylor.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m00019f6)
The Unfortunates

"But I know this city...Tony. This town. His town. Their town."

Adaptation of BS Johnson's 'forgotten masterpiece' in which a sports journalist's memories of an old friend are triggered when he travels to a strange city to cover a football match.

The novel was published in unbound sections loose in a box and intended to be read in any order, so as well as a meditation on friendship and loss, The Unfortunates becomes an inquiry into memory and the act of writing, as our hero struggles to recall everything in order to 'get it all down' as he promised his dying friend.

In a first for the BBC, this audio drama is now available on smart speakers, using the latest technology to create an experience which captures the spirit of the original avant-garde novel. Just as BS Johnson intended the sections of the novel to be read in any order, the smart speaker gives you any number of randomised versions of the drama. The story changes every time, giving you endless permutations, shaped using spoken commands.

How do you enjoy The Unfortunates on smart speakers? It’s free to download and can be found either by asking your device to enable The Unfortunates, via the skill store or via BBC R&D’s website at bbc.co.uk/taster.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08h0j1p)
The Women of Renaissance Ferrara
St Catherine of Bologna

Lust, murder, sex, intrigue - and a host of music written by, and for, virtuoso women. BBC Radio 3 lifts the lid on the secret world of the singing ladies of Renaissance Ferrara.

Throughout the 1500s, the northern Italian city of Ferrara was one of Europe's political and cultural powerhouses: ducal seat of the celebrated d'Este family, and home for a time to perhaps the Renaissance's most notorious femme fatale: Lucrezia Borgia. Yet it also had a thriving musical culture - one founded upon the unique talents of a set of quite extraordinary women, who honed their musical gifts in almost total secrecy in convents and at secret concerts held in a tiny room within Ferrara's vast Castello. These women had a huge influence on Monteverdi, Gesualdo, and other luminaries of the early Baroque - yet when the Duchy of Ferrara fell in 1597 they faded into legend. This week, Composer of the Week puts that right. Recorded in studio and on location in modern-day Ferrara, Donald Macleod is joined by Renaissance musical scholar Laurie Stras to explore more than a century of female musical genius.

Donald and Laurie begin the week with a selection of gems from Ferrara's golden age - and hints of the dramatic story to come - before taking us right back to the mid-15th century and the first key figure in our story: composer, poet and mystic St Catherine of Bologna. Famed as a composer, poet, singer and violinist, musicians and poets from around Europe would come to the doors of the convent of Corpus Domini in Ferrara for an audience with Catherine, who - according to legend -would play for days at a time, and move between song and speech, music and chant.

Kabeláč: The Mystery of Time

Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No. 2

8.15: Interval

Dvořák: Slavonic Dances, Op.46

Simon Trpčeski piano
Jakub Hrůša conductor

Jakub Hrůša conducts music by two of his Czech fellow-countrymen, alongside Shostakovich’s ever-popular Second Piano Concerto.

Before Dvořàk’s ebullient first set of Slavonic Dances, the work that set him on the road to international success, Jakub Hrůša introduces the music of a less familiar compatriot, Miloslav Kabeláč. Acknowledged as a worthy 20th century successor of Dvořàk, Kabeláč was silenced by the 1968 Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.
The Mystery of Time distils into 25 minutes a musical vision stretching ‘from the infinite past to the infinite future’. Ethereal sounds emerge tentatively out of nothing, repeated motifs build up layers in a slow, inexorable crescendo, and then subside back into silence.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08h0k92)
The Women of Renaissance Ferrara
Lucrezia Borgia, Tromboncino and de Rore

Donald Macleod and Laurie Stras explore the musical legacy of Lucrezia Borgia and her favourite composer (and murderer), Bartolomeo Tromboncino, the "Little Trombone".

Throughout the 1500s, the northern Italian city of Ferrara was one of Europe's political and cultural powerhouses: ducal seat of the celebrated d'Este family, and home for a time to perhaps the Renaissance's most notorious femme fatale: Lucrezia Borgia. Yet it also had a thriving musical culture - one founded upon the unique talents of a set of quite extraordinary women, who honed their musical gifts in almost total secrecy in convents and at secret concerts held in a tiny room within Ferrara's vast Castello. These women had a huge influence on Monteverdi, Gesualdo, and other luminaries of the early Baroque - yet when the Duchy of Ferrara fell in 1597, they faded into legend. This week, Composer of the Week puts that right. Recorded in studio and on location in modern-day Ferrara, Donald Macleod is joined by Renaissance musical scholar Laurie Stras to explore more than a century of female musical genius.

At the 16th century dawned, Ferrara welcomed the most notorious woman in Renaissance Italy to its magnificent Castello: Lucrezia Borgia, new wife of Duke Alfonso I. Their daughter, Leonora d'Este - composer, singer, and nun - was to prove one of the most remarkable and influential musical figures of the 1500s. But for now, the court of Ferrara rang with the frottole, or popular songs, of Bartolomeo Tromboncino - a composer who had fled his home city of Mantua after murdering his unfaithful wife. Donald Macleod explores how the frottola was hugely influential in the development of the madrigal - the most celebrated secular vocal form of the age - and explores the legacy of a giant of the Ferrarese Renaissance, the Flemish composer Cipriano de Rore, and his murky relationship with the notorious Protestant duchess, Renée of France.

Quarantine, plagues and gun crime

Should we worry about the world getting healthier? Thomas Bollyky thinks we should. Jane Stevens Crawshaw looks at cleanliness and disease in Renaissance cities & Penny Woolcock films Oxford and LA. Rana Mitter presents.

For the first time in recorded history, parasites, viruses, bacteria, and other infectious diseases are not the leading cause of death and disability in any region of the world but that doesn't mean our cities are healthier and more prosperous. Jane Steven Crawshaw from Oxford Brookes researches plague hospitals and quarantine.
From cleaning up C15th Venice and Milan, Rana Mitter also considers C21st Oxford and Los Angeles in new films by Penny Woolcock which explore their different mythologies. Her recent projects have also included the different responses she and a gang member have walking down the same street and a range of views on personal gun use.

Thomas Bollyky is director of the global health program and senior fellow for global health, economics, and development at the Council on Foreign Relations. His book is called Plagues and the Paradox of Progress: Why the World is Getting Healthier in Worrisome Ways.
Fantastic Cities - an exhibition of Penny Woolcock's work runs at Modern Art Oxford until March 2019.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08h0k94)
The Women of Renaissance Ferrara
Leonora d'Este and Raffaella Aleotti

Revealed for the first time in 500 years: the enigmatic genius of two pioneering women composers of Renaissance Ferrara: Leonora d'Este and Raffaella Aleotti.

Throughout the 1500s, the northern Italian city of Ferrara was one of Europe's political and cultural powerhouses: ducal seat of the celebrated d'Este family, and home for a time to perhaps the Renaissance's most notorious femme fatale: Lucrezia Borgia. Yet it also had a thriving musical culture - one founded upon the unique talents of a set of quite extraordinary women, who honed their musical gifts in almost total secrecy in convents and at secret concerts held in a tiny room within Ferrara's vast Castello. These women had a huge influence on Monteverdi, Gesualdo, and other luminaries of the early Baroque - yet when the Duchy of Ferrara fell in 1597, they faded into legend. This week, Composer Of The Week puts that right. Recorded in studio and on location in modern-day Ferrara, Donald Macleod is joined by Renaissance musical scholar Laurie Stras to explore more than a century of female musical genius.

As BBC Radio 3 celebrates International Women's Day, we feature the story of two extraordinary female composing pioneers - both of whose legacy is shrouded in mystery. Suor Leonora d'Este was the daughter of the infamous Lucrezia Borgia, a nun, a singer and - it's believed - the composer of one of the most mysterious books of motets of the mid-16th century. Donald Macleod's guest, Renaissance music scholar Laurie Stras, explains why she thinks this ostensibly anonymous text came from Leonora's hand: making her the first published woman composer in Western musical history. Meanwhile, in contemporary Ferrara, Donald explores the enigma of Vittoria and Raffaella Aleotti, two sisters - one a published composer of madrigals, the other a convent-dwelling composer of motets. Or were they in fact the same person?

A Different Drummer was the debut novel of Kelley - first published when he was 24. Compared to William Faulkner and James Baldwin, it was forgotten until an article about it earlier this year. Kelley died aged 79 in 2017. His story imagines the day the black population of a Southern US town decide to get up and all go.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08h0k96)
The Women of Renaissance Ferrara
Giaches de Wert and the First Concerto

After a devastating earthquake nearly destroys Ferrara in 1570, from the rubble is born an extraordinary ensemble of virtuoso female musicians.

Throughout the 1500s, the northern Italian city of Ferrara was one of Europe's political and cultural powerhouses: ducal seat of the celebrated d'Este family, and home for a time to perhaps the Renaissance's most notorious femme fatale: Lucrezia Borgia. Yet it also had a thriving musical culture - one founded upon the unique talents of a set of quite extraordinary women, who honed their musical gifts in almost total secrecy in convents and at secret concerts held in a tiny room within Ferrara's vast Castello. These women had a huge influence on Monteverdi, Gesualdo, and other luminaries of the early Baroque - yet when the Duchy of Ferrara fell in 1597, they faded into legend. This week, Composer Of The Week puts that right. Recorded in studio and on location in modern-day Ferrara, Donald Macleod is joined by Renaissance musical scholar Laurie Stras to explore more than a century of female musical genius.

Barely a decade into the rule of Duke Alfonso II, the man who turned Ferrara into a cultural and political powerhouse, tragedy struck the city in 1570 as it was hit by a devastating earthquake. Alfonso's accession had already resulted in the flowering of female singing at the court, but now, forced to entertain visiting royalty on the most threadbare of resources, the Duke commanded his finest female musicians to form an ensemble of their own - dazzling guests with their brilliant, shimmering vocal harmonies. This first generation of singing ladies was to gain a pan-European reputation, and set the scene for the fabled "concerto delle donne" - highly-secretive concerts at which noblemen would be treated to an utterly unique, and mesmerising, musical performance. Donald Macleod explores the genesis of the ensemble with Renaissance music scholar Laurie Stras, concentrating today on the music of one of the age's most gifted composers: Giaches de Wert.

Synopsis
On a Christmas night, Conrad, an obscure Viennese painter, rebels against misery. Unlucky in love and society, he can’t take it any longer. During a deep crisis of despair, his physician appears to him in the guise of a devil. The latter offers him a magical object, his silver bell, each ringing of which will make him rich in abundance, while causing the death of an innocent. Upon waking, bewitched Conrad strikes the bell: gold flows but a dead already collapsed on his doorstep.

Mike Hodges, Dark Sweden

The director of the 1971 film Get Carter, which starred Michael Caine, has now written his own crime novellas. Mike Hodges talks to Matthew Sweet. If Nordic Noir has reshaped an image of Sweden away from Abba into a society showing cracks - journalist Kajsa Norman has been tracking stories such as the cover-up of assaults on teenage girls at music festivals in 2015. She's called her book Sweden's Dark Soul: The Unravelling of a Utopia. Mike Hodges' trio of novellas is called Bait, Grist and Security.

THU 23:05 Late Junction (m0001bm6)
Live music from Unsound Festival, Poland

Nick Luscombe presents live music recorded in a synagogue in Krakow as part of the Unsound Festival 2018. Todd Barton’s Music and Poetry for The Kesh was originally released in 1985 as a cassette tape to accompany Ursula Le Guin’s anthropological fantasy novel Always Coming Home. The novel describes the life and society of an imagined community of people called The Kesh, set in a post-apocalyptic world at an unspecified time. Todd’s soundtrack enigmatically combines poetry and song in the Kesh language with new age analogue synths and borrowed folk traditions. Todd performs with an ensemble of Polish musicians created especially for this performance by Unsound Festival.

Also on the bill was the American sound artist and saxophonist Lea Bertucci. Lea considers the physical space she’s in as a collaborator and talks to Nick before the gig about the sonic properties of the synagogue.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.

The Women of Renaissance Ferrara
Dangerous Graces - Luzzaschi and the Fall of Ferrara

As Europe's nobility scramble for an audience with the secretive singing ladies of Ferrara, the Duchy meets a shockingly abrupt end. The fate of its musical legacy lies in the hand of just one man...

Throughout the 1500s, the northern Italian city of Ferrara was one of Europe's political and cultural powerhouses: ducal seat of the celebrated d'Este family, and home for a time to perhaps the Renaissance's most notorious femme fatale: Lucrezia Borgia. Yet it also had a thriving musical culture - one founded upon the unique talents of a set of quite extraordinary women, who honed their musical gifts in almost total secrecy in convents and at secret concerts held in a tiny room within Ferrara's vast Castello. These women had a huge influence on Monteverdi, Gesualdo, and other luminaries of the early Baroque - yet when the Duchy of Ferrara fell in 1597, they faded into legend. This week, Composer of the Week puts that right. Recorded in studio and on location in modern-day Ferrara, Donald Macleod is joined by Renaissance musical scholar Laurie Stras to explore more than a century of female musical genius.

By the late 1500s, the secret concerts of Alfonso II were the hottest ticket in Europe, with composers, poets and noblemen flocking to Ferrara to hear the legendary vocal virtuosity of its stars Anna Guarini, Laura Peverara and Livia d'Arco. Yet only the most privileged would be granted an audience in the tiny salon, deep in the Castello, where the women would sing and play under the supervision of their music director, Luzzasco Luzzaschi. Yet, just as it was at the peak of its cultural power, the Duchy of Ferrara abruptly fell, Anna Guarini was brutally murdered, and the secrets of an extraordinary century of female music-making were left in jeopardy...

Remembering World War 1: Vaughan Williams and Beyond

Live from the Barbican, the BBC SO conducted by Martyn Brabbins in WW1-inspired music: Bax, Vaughan Williams plus baritone Marcus Farnsworth in a new work by Cheryl Frances-Hoad.

Presented by Martin Handley

Arnold Bax: November Woods
Cheryl Frances-Hoad: Last Man Standing (World Premiere)

8.15pm
Interval

8.35
Vaughan Williams: Symphony No.4 in F Minor

Marcus Farnsworth (baritone)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Martyn Brabbins (conductor)

Shocking the audience at its 1935 premiere, the surface violence of Vaughan Williams’s Fourth Symphony conceals the composer’s most classical symphony – a work whose greatest debt is to Beethoven. The symphony’s knotty, introspective drama draws on the composer’s wartime experiences in the Medical Corps, and WWI is also the starting point for Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s Last Man Standing. This song-cycle, premiered here by baritone Marcus Farnsworth, sets a new text by Tamsin Collison inspired by WW1 texts and personal testimonies. Bax’s turbulent, 1917 tone-poem November Woods completes the programme.
