Choral connections

As part of BBC Radio 3’s celebration of one of the greatest composers of the Romantic period, Hector Berlioz. Nicolas Kruger conducts the BBC Singers in a concert of songs and choral music by Berlioz. The Romantic Movement promoted nature and the liberation of the emotions, this is reflected in the composer’s choral music. From the striking and dramatic La belle Isabeau: conte pendant l'orage to one of Berlioz's most lyrical and passionate works Irlande (Neuf mélodies), inspired by Thomas Moore’s poetry, there is considerable intensity of emotion and depth of feeling. Join the BBC Singers as they celebrate the work of Berlioz, the bohemian composer.

Presented by Natasha Riordan.

Berlioz - The Ultimate Romantic

A reappraisal of the French composer on the 150th anniversary of his death. Part of Berlioz – The Ultimate Romantic.

Tom Service meets conductors, performers and biographers to explore the strange powers and imaginative visions in the music of Hector Berlioz.

Including Sir John Eliot Gardiner, one of the UK's biggest champions for Berlioz and his music, on his own relationship with the music and on his pioneering work with the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique. Tom also meets two of the ORR's players, horn player Anneke Scott and cellist Robin Michael.

The conductor Nicholas Collon joins Tom to examine Berlioz's extraordinary use of structure and harmony in Symphonie Fantastique, also revealing an out of body experience he had whilst playing the symphony as a member of the National Youth Orchestra.

Tom also meets David Cairns, one of the most influential Berlioz biographers of recent times, and talks to Bruno Messina, who directs the Festival Berlioz in his and the composer's home town in South West France, and is the author of a new French biography.

Plus Chi-Chi Nwanoku on the rare and extraordinary Octobass. soprano Carolyn Sampson on singing Les Nuit d'Ete, and the musician and researcher Carmel Raz on Berlioz's interest in neurophysiology and the effects of music, and how he used it in his music.


SAT 13:00 Berlioz - The Ultimate Romantic (m0002lq7)
Berlioz and beyond

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Ryan Bancroft present a concert marking the anniversary of the composer's death. If Berlioz is thought of as a skilled orchestrator then there may be a resonance with the music of 19th century Dutch composer Johan Wagenaar and 20th century French composer Henri Dutilleux. Both bring finesse to the instrumentation of their works which draw from Berlioz' precedent. The concert also includes music by Berlioz himself written early in life. His lyric cantata Herminie was written in an attempt to win the Prix de Rome - awarded by the Paris Conservatoire. It is performed here by soprano Katharine Dain.
And the concert concludes with Berlioz' Overture to his rarely performed opera Benevenuto Cellini, which conjures up the life of the titular sculptor.

Recorded at City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Kate Molleson

Wagenaar: The Taming of the Shrew (Overture)

Berlioz - the Ultimate Romantic

Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique epitomises the image of romantic composer as tormented soul. Matthew Sweet looks at how cinematic portrayals of classical composers have taken this idea to heart. The programme considers screen portraits of Liszt, Grieg, Beethoven, Wagner, Paganini, Mozart and of course Berlioz himself, featuring music from 'Lisztomania', 'Song Without End', 'The Magic Bow', 'Song of Norway', 'Magic Fire', 'Immortal Beloved', Copying Beethoven', 'Ludwig', 'Whom The Gods Love', and 'Amadeus'.

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Pascal Rophé (conductor)

BBC Radio 3 celebrates the 150th anniversary of the death of the great French composer Hector Berlioz with a weekend of live and pre-recorded concerts from across the UK by all the BBC's Orchestras and Choirs.

Tom Service finds out more about Berlioz's skills as an innovative composer of orchestral music; and traces Berlioz's influence on Liszt, a great admirer of the Frenchman's music who championed and introduced much of Berlioz's orchestral music to a wider public via his piano arrangements. Liszt had been at the premiere of Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, an experience which may have sparked him twenty years later to create a new musical form, the Symphonic Poem performed today in Les Preludes.

The tidal current of Berlioz's brilliance has exerted its pull across the generations and, moving forward a century, Tom talks to conductor Pascal Rophé about another Berlioz devotee Henri Dutilleux. That's before a performance of Dutilleux's essay in colour Timbres, espace, mouvement [La nuit etoilée], which was inspired by Van Gogh's painting The Starry Night.


SAT 18:15 Berlioz - The Ultimate Romantic (m0002lqr)
Storms and seascapes

Berlioz was fascinated by the orchestra as a colour palette, and wrote a Treatise on Orchestration which is still hugely influential even today. In his manual Berlioz waxed lyrical about the Storm in Beethoven's sixth symphony, and later used some of the same techniques in his own tempests, such as the Royal Hunt and Storm from his Opera Les Troyens. In a concert with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales under the baton of Jessica Cottis, Jon James takes us through seven depictions of storms and seascapes from a period of over 200 years, revealing the ingenious ways that each composer creates his maelstrom.

As part of the BBC Orchestras' and Choirs' celebrations to mark the 150th anniversary of the death of Berlioz, the BBC Philharmonic and conductor Ludovic Morlot present a concert performance of the music of his last opera, Béatrice et Bénédict. Written to a libretto penned by the composer himself and based on Shakespeare's comedy 'Much Ado About Nothing', Berlioz described his opera as "a caprice written with the point of a needle" and this work showcases some of Berlioz's most glittering music.

Berlioz - The Ultimate Romantic

As part of Radio 3's Berlioz season, Tom Service introduces a complete broadcast of David Sawer’s radiophonic work Swansong, commissioned by the BBC and first broadcast in 1989. Sawer’s work is an evocation of a fantastical musical city, Euphonia, imagined by Hector Berlioz in one of the tales from his book Evenings With The Orchestra. Sawer has taken Berlioz’s descriptions of the strange sounds of the city and used the resources of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Singers, various solo instruments, sound effects and a children’s choir to evoke Euphonia in the form of a radiophonic symphonic poem.

Also tonight, music by another British composer of today deeply inspired by Berlioz, Benedict Mason, and his site-specific work for the Baarsporthalle at Donaueschingen and commissioned for the festival by Southwest German Radio. From the same concert we also hear an orchestral work by a long-overlooked Swiss composer, Hermann Meier, and our Sound of the Week comes from the Dutch composer Carlijn Metselaar who takes us into the undergrowth for the snapping of twigs and branches.

Lelio

As celebrations of Berlioz begin to thrust towards an inevitable climax the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Pascal Rophe explore his most dramatic, and racy, orchestral works. Beginning with Waverley, his overture inspired by Walter Scott's mythical Perthshire, the orchestra is then joined by mezzo soprano Karen Cargill to perform his passionate musical monologue describing the death of Cleopatra. And after the interval a rare chance to hear the large-scale music drama Lelio. A strange form of choral and orchestral cantata-cum-melodrama it was originally conceived as a sequel to Symphonie Fantastique - recounting the continuing psychological adventures of a lecherous, self-obsessed, sex maniac with delusions of artistic grandeur.

Flanerie - a view of Paris

An imagined serendipitous journey through Paris's streets, past and present, told through its literature and music, with the actors Tamsin Greig and Neil Pearson

The Flâneur - "that aimless stroller who loses himself in the crowd, who has no destination and goes wherever caprice or curiosity directs his or her steps".

It was Baudelaire, in his "Fleurs du Mal" in the late 19th century, who created flânerie as a literary ideal for evoking the patterns and emotions of modern urban life in Paris; but the concept of the detached observer - casual, directionless, voyeuristic - who finds refuge within the crowded streets of the capital, had been around for some time. Balzac, writing in the years before the advent of Haussman's modern cityscape, had described flânerie as "the gastronomy of the eye". Later, the German writer and social-critic, Walter Benjamin, would use the experiences of the Parisian flâneur as illustrations for socio-political commentary.

In this edition of Words and Music, we - much in the spirit of the flâneur - take a casual musical and literary journey through Paris's imagined streets. Glimpses of buildings bring to mind the city's great history and its inhabitants; its poets, writers and composers. Imagine sauntering past Notre Dame and the neighbouring university: and the ribaldry of medieval Paris fills the mind's eye, evoking the words of Villon and Rabelais; of Victor Hugo describing the medieval skyline and the festive sound of the medieval bells.

Next on to the Louvre and the Marais, and echoes of the grandeur of Paris during the age of the Sun King; of Marie de Rabutin-Chantal de Sévingné's famous letters; of the music of Lully and Charpentier. Turn another corner, and find the youthful Marin Marais, lost and bewildered by the banks of the Seine - his voice, post-pubescent - his services no longer required in the Royal Chapel.

A hundred years on, and in the wretched area of Sainte-Antoine, Charles Dickens watches the abject poor seemingly rehearse events for one the city's least glorious moments; their hands and clothes stained with red wine, like blood.

Balzac lists the varied "physiognomy" of the Parisian back streets in the years just before Haussmann re-invented the city - we follow him into some of Paris's more forbidding and darker haunts; while later - into the Belle Époque and beyond - coursing among the newer buildings, parks and thoroughfares - Baudelaire, Proust and Zola observe Parisian life with a multitude of senses and a painterly eye. As do Fauré, Verlaine and Debussy.

"Among all cities, there is none more associated with the book than Paris", wrote Walter Benjamin. Ernest Hemingway finds refuge in one of the city's necessary cafes, watching and transcribing, while Beria and Bechet set the same thoughts to music.

Finally, our serendipitous journey presents an aspect of the modern Paris: not the beautiful; nor the bustling, fashionable and vibrant; but urban nonetheless. The city at its edge - people at the periphery. The world in the Banlieue: of graffiti and the blues.

SUN 19:30 Berlioz - The Ultimate Romantic (m0002l9c)
Symphonie fantastique

Douglas Boyd conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in music by Weber and Berlioz. Plus choral works by Berlioz from the BBC Symphony Chorus. Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique is the stuff of nightmares, obsessions, and dreams, music that illustrates a fearful story and at the same time is full of the most innovative and startling orchestral sounds. Coupled with the Symphony is the Frenchman at his most delicate in one of the earliest orchestral song cycles Les nuits d'été (The Nights of Summer). Today it is served with its songs shared between four fine singers of French song - which is how it was originally premiered. Plus Carl Maria von Weber's L’invitation à la valse as orchestrated by Berlioz the master orchestrator - who was author of a seminal orchestration treatise. In the interval the BBC Symphony Chorus performs some of Berlioz's many sacred works.

Live from Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden.

Mendelssohn: Overture 'Ruy Blas'
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 9 in E flat (K 271)

8.15 Music Interval

8.35 Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 'Pathétique'

When the cultured young Mendelssohn read Victor Hugo's play, 'Ruy Blas', which had been finished just the year earlier, he found it 'detestable'. But that didn't stop him writing a zesty overture to precede a performance of the play - for no fee, and in only three days! Martin James Bartlett joins Andrew Gourlay and the BBC Philharmonic for Mozart's Piano Concerto No.9; some say that this was the first of his works to show his true colours and maturity, hinting at what was yet to come in his music. Sometimes known by its twentieth-century nickname 'Jeunehomme' after a misspelling of the name of the pianist who commissioned the work, the Concerto allows the piano to make itself known at the start of the piece, a conversational device that Mozart never repeated in his piano concertos. The title of Tchaikovsky's 'Pathétique' Symphony was suggested by his brother over dinner. In a letter to his publisher Tchaikovsky said "I give you my word of honour that never in my life have I been so contented, so proud, so happy, in the knowledge that I've written a good piece." He conducted the premiere just a week before he died, that tragedy seemingly predicted in the emotional involvement of the Symphony's closing Adagio lamentoso.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b096gqwd)
Stuff Happens

Moving House

Why does stuff have such an emotional hold on us? Why can't we just let it go?

In a previous series for The Essay, Joanna Robertson took us to some of the international cities she's lived in and told us the Shopping News. Now, she takes on the consequences. Stuff Happens - not just to shopaholics but to all of us. It's the seemingly inescapable curse of 21st century consumerism - however hard we try to declutter and resist.
In this edition, Joanna Robertson relives some of her frequent house moves in Europe. Once, when relocating from Rome to Berlin, Joanna and her stuff got perilously stuck in the snowbound Alps, in almost the same spot as Hannibal and his elephants over two millennia earlier.

Producer: Arlene Gregorius.

JS Bach (1685-1750)

Weimar

Donald Macleod draws alongside JS Bach as he travels from place to place throughout his life, today arriving at the city of Weimar.

Bach first worked in Weimar as a court musician at the age of 18. He moved on again after seven months, to take up a church appointment in nearby city of Arnstadt, but he returned to Weimar again five years later, as court organist and later also concertmaster. It was in Weimar that Bach would write most of his organ music. But his time there was compounded by the fact that he found himself in the uncomfortable position of being a servant to two antagonistic Dukes. Bach had his work cut out trying to keep his two Dukes happy.

Messages Without Words

As part of Kings Place's year-long exploration of the work of women composers, the Scottish Ensemble joins pianist Gabriela Montero for a compelling programme of 20th- and 21st-century music with a message. The concert includes a new piece by Montero herself (a portrait of her experience as a human rights activist), as well her trademark improvisations, and the sense of a journey is at the heart of Bulgarian-born British composer Dobrinka Tabakova's 2007 string sextet Such Different Paths.

Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony began life as his 10th String Quartet, music full of bitterness, disillusion and defiance in the face of Soviet-controlled life. Philip Glass says his Echorus was 'inspired by thoughts of compassion and is meant to evoke feelings of serenity and peace', and so it shares a similar vibe to Messiaen's ecstatic, suspended-time vision of heaven which ends the concert.

Recorded last week at Kings Place, London, and presented by Natasha Riordan.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b096gv0g)
Stuff Happens

Tidy Home, Tidy Mind

Why is it so hard to get rid of stuff? Why does it have such a hold on us, yet get us down?

In a previous series for The Essay, Joanna Robertson took us to some of the international cities she's lived in and told us the Shopping News. Now, she takes on the consequences. Stuff Happens - not just to shopaholics but to all of us. It's the seemingly inescapable curse of 21st century consumerism - however hard we try to declutter and resist.
In this edition, Joanna Robertson aims for a tidy home, and its reward, a tidy mind. Easier said than done - except on one occasion, when she managed quite a coup.
Producer: Arlene Gregorius.

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Kate Molleson

CPE Bach: Symphony in Eb major
Stravinsky: Violin Concerto

8.05 Interval

8.25 Part 2
Bruckner: Symphony No 7

Carolin Widmann (violin)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Ilan Volkov (conductor)

The theme of Bruckner's 7th Symphony came to him in a dream; the theme of Stravinsky's Violin Concerto came to him at dinner. We don't know where CPE Bach thought up his Symphony in Eb, but his music, which opens this concert, was pivotal in the development of the classical forms that Stravinsky would later draw on in his so-called 'Neoclassical' works. Nevertheless it is the music of his father JS Bach which is most resonant in Stravinsky's 1931 Violin Concerto: a work almost entirely derived from a single chord, scribbled on a napkin. The BBC SSO, and conductor Ilan Volkov, are joined by the sparky virtuoso Carolin Widmann to play it.

In contrast to the concision of these two composers' music stands Bruckner's 7th Symphony. It is massively more expansive in length but still owes a great deal to CPE Bach's 18th century formal innovations. Written in the 1880s it won international recognition for its composer. The symphony pays tribute to Wagner in its central death-hymn: and went on to be much admired by Hitler.

Sarah is an electroacoustic composer and organist from Calgary, Canada with an interest in the delicate psychoacoustics of intimate aural spaces. Incorporating elements of drone and acoustic sources, with influences in minimalism and the Baroque, she has been described as a hybrid of Terry Riley and Eliane Radigue.

Also in the show, Verity Sharp presents folk songwriter Eliza Carthy’s solo album, described as a pilgrimage towards friendship from a dark place; Punkt.Vrt.Plastik are a newly formed European jazz trio featuring Kaja Draksler on piano, bassist Petter Eldh and Christian Lillinger on drums; and there’s music from Olivia Louvel’s audio-visual project Data Regina which explores the reigns of Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0002nch)
JS Bach (1685-1750)

The World

Donald Macleod travels from place to place with JS Bach, today examining the afterlife of Bach’s music, including his propulsion into outer space aboard the Voyager spacecraft’s Golden Record.

When the astronomer Carl Sagan asked for suggestions as to what music should be included on the Golden Record, the writer Lewis Thomas responded: “I would send the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach,” adding, “but that would be boasting.”

It’s a long way from Leipzig, where Bach died in 1750, when it was by no means certain that his music would endure. Indeed much of it didn’t. JS Bach slipped quietly from view so that by the end of the 19th century there was no gravestone to mark where he was buried.

The vibrant colours and heady, perfumed atmosphere of ancient Chinese poems are captured in all their richness by Mahler’s lavishly scored Das Lied von der Erde. Two star singers – tenor Stuart Skelton and mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, both regular BBC Symphony Orchestra collaborators – join as soloists. Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo also conducts a pared-back BBC SO in Mozart’s exhilarating Symphony No 35 ‘Haffner’, it’s bubbling, operatic with a contrast to the restless musical introspection of Thomas Larcher’s Nocturne Insomnia – the second of three performances of music by this fascinating Austrian composer in the BBC SO's 2018-19 Barbican season.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b096j8wy)
Stuff Happens

My Mother's House

How do you deal with a house worth of "stuff" when the family home needs to be cleared after the death of your mother? And when you're living in a small flat that has little room for heirlooms?
While in the depths of grief, and faced with difficult decisions about what to do with everything, Joanna Robertson ponders the true meaning of things once their beloved owner has gone. Apart from their obvious sentimental value, do these objects provide us with a deeper connection to our history and identity? Or are they just "stuff" to get rid of?


FRI 23:00 Music Planet (m0002ncw)
