SAT 09:00 Record Review (m0002zkh)
Andrew McGregor with Stephen Johnson and Sara Mohr-Pietsch

with Andrew McGregor.

09.30
Building a Library: Stephen Johnson listens to and compares some of the available recordings of Tchaikovsky's string sextet Souvenir de Florence, Op.70.

Tchaikovsky subtitled his String Sextet in D minor, Op.70, 'Souvenir de Florence' because he sketched one of the work's main themes during the 3-month visit he made to Florence in Italy in 1890 during which he mainly devoted his energy to composing his opera, The Queen of Spades. Despite its conception in Italy, the Souvenir de Florence is decidedly Russian in character. It's not a work that Tchaikovsky found easy to complete, partly because of the scoring for 2 violins, 2 violas and 2 cellos, a texture that he found sometimes more orchestral than comprising 6 independent contrapuntal voices. Tchaikovsky composed the Sextet in 31 days and it received its first public performance in December 1890 at the St Petersburg Chamber Music Society, which had commissioned the work. Tchaikovsky was not entirely happy and revised the work during the following 2 years. Its final version was premiered in 1892 at the St Petersburg Imperial Russian Musical Society, by a sextet led by Leopold Auer.

In the run-up to International Women's Day, Sara Mohr-Pietsch reviews some of the most exciting new releases of the female composers.

He also includes energetic music by an adventurous French composer Charles Tessier, in which Tessier uses nonsense ‘Turkish’, probably as a result of a trip he took to Istanbul in the late 1500s.

At 2pm Allan reveals his Must Listen piece, taking us into the violent world of the 17th-century execution of a Scottish witch.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (m0002zky)
Container Ship Karaoke

Is karaoke the modern sea shanty?

Containers are the nearly invisible carriers of 90% of the goods on earth – yet we know so little about them, or the people on board. The crew who power globalisation, are unsung heroes. Now we hear them sing, and capture something of that strange, lonely, heroic life.

Sea shanties are a relic of the past – today it’s far more likely to be karaoke soothing the soul and powering the arm of the modern sea farer.
Instead nearly all ships have a karaoke machine on board - and rumour has it, competition is ferocious.
In search of the modern sea shanty, Nathaniel Mann, award winning singer and song collector, who has long avoided taking part in karaoke, boards a state-of-the-art container ship in Gdansk shipyard… the Maribo Maersk, to sing along with the Filipino sea men, ship's cook Valiente, and able-seaman Ariel.
He also ‘plays the ship’ - discovering acoustic possibilities from the engine room to the Monkey Island (the platform above the bridge), attaching contact microphones which revel the rhythms hidden behind heavy metal walls.
He climbs out on the 'catwalk' to watch the stevedores at work, the giant cranes crashing a container into the hold every 2 minutes, 24 hours a day - until all 18,272 have been shifted - with all the complexity of a game of Tetrus.

The company offers mainly 5 month contracts to the 20 or so sailors on board, and discovering how the team pass those months at sea, Nathaniel hears tales of home-sickness, made even more poignant by the choice of songs the crew prefer to sing.

We hear from an international crew about life at sea in this giant vessel – you can’t even hear the sea from the decks above. Tales of dark skies, longed for loved ones, learning the shape of the world from water - we hear a fluid mix of the sounds of the ship, the crew singing karaoke, and Nathan's own new songs, gleaned from his observations on board.

We also hear from Suffolk shanty singers Des and Jed, who wonder if karaoke might be an updated version of an older form of shanty.

About the presenter: Nathaniel Mann is an experimental composer, sound artist, performer and sound designer - known both for his experimental trio Dead Rat Orchestra, and most recently as embedded composer at the Pitt Rivers Museum. He also won the Arts Foundation's 25 Anniversary Fellowship 2018.
In 2015 he won the George Butterworth Prize for Composition, and much of his experience as an accomplished and imaginative percussive master, as well as singer, will be integral to this programme - a symphony of singing, the sea, the ships and the songsters.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0002zmj)
Rachel Parris

The comedian Rachel Parris talks to Michael Berkeley about her musical passions and how her life as a classical musician led to her career in comedy. Her hugely versatile career includes improvised comedy shows, stand-up, musical comedy and appearances on Radio 4’s The Now Show. She’s caused quite a stir with her hilarious turns as a faux-naïve reporter on BBC2’s satirical news show The Mash Report.

During her teens Rachel thought she would have a career as a classical musician –– she has a Music degree from Oxford, she’s an accomplished singer, and an excellent pianist; indeed, until recently she was a piano teacher.

Rachel talks to Michael about how she moved from music to comedy via drama school and how music still has a central place in her life. Her choices of pieces reflect the breadth of her musical passions, from a recording of Tallis in which she sings, to Bernstein and the American Songbook. She loves music that tells a story, particularly Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, and music that makes her laugh, like Tom Lehrer’s songs. Rachel talks movingly about depression and her work with The Samaritans, and we hear music by Debussy which she finds a comfort in difficult times.

Style Counsel

Tom Service dispenses Style Counsel - what are the different eras in music history, and how can you tell them from each other? How did they come about and grow and change? And as Radio 3 is about to launch its New Year New Music season, is there an overarching distinguishing style in music today? Tom is joined by composer and writer Neil Brand at the piano for some answers.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b0b5sz5m)
Heroines

Readings by Tuppence Middleton and Patsy Ferran and a selection of music, from Ethel Smyth to Janelle Monáe , Rokia Traoré to Fanny Mendelssohn, Respighi to Robert Wyatt in praise of heroines: some fictional, like Sally Bowles and Scheherazade, some historical, like Grace Darling and Joan of Arc, some inspirational, like Malala Yousafzai and Rosa Parks, and some simply anonymous and everyday - like poet Gillian Clarke's mother rescuing a drowning child or WB Yeats' Song of an Old Mother.

As we approach this year’s International Women’s Day next Friday - Words and Music this weekend explores the idea of what a heroine is and the range of qualities which have been praised from patience to protest, from caring to cunning.

We begin with a Concerto for Violin Horn and Piano by Ethel Smyth, the composer who had written The March of the Women in 1910, which became the official anthem of the Women's Social and Political Union. This is followed by folk musician Eliza Carthy's solo version of the Pankhurst Anthem, a new piece commissioned by BBC Radio 3 from composer Lucy Pankhurst which uses the words of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. But if we begin with campaigning energy should we end in a celebratory mood?

Producer: Harry Parker.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0002zmr)
Into the Eerie

New Generation Thinker Will Abberley takes a journey into the strange and unsettling world of the English Eerie and discovers a growing movement of artists, writers and musicians exploring impressions of the ‘Eerie’ in the landscape.

The idea of uncanny forces which resonate in a place, the buried traumas and sufferings which lie just under the surface of a landscape has always inspired artists. But in recent years there’s been a resurgence of interest in the Eerie in art as well as ecology and archaeology. It’s in the songs of PJ Harvey, the compositions of Richard Skelton, the nature writing of Helen Macdonald and Robert MacFarlane and the films of Tacita Dean and Ben Wheatley. Will speaks to some of these artists to understand why and how the tradition of the Eerie is being revived in response to contemporary fears and crises.

He travels to the Wirral to meet film maker Adam Scovell who argues there’s a positive force in engaging with the Eerie in an era when the British landscape is at the centre of environmental and political conflicts. Ecologist Timothy Morton suggests the Eerie builds renewed interest and respect for a landscape. In the remote Pennines Will meets composer and writer Richard Skelton whose most recent works are a summoning call to those species now extinct in our landscape. Artist Tacita Dean also describes her ongoing pull towards the most ancient parts of England where a feeling of fear sharpens her ability to engage with the environment.

Love Thy Synth (Omnibus)

Hannah Silva’s future-set story of a woman’s search for connection is told through the podcasts she makes with her synthetic robodoll.

Nikki King is a journalist and presenter of Scientethics, a podcast exploring the blurred lines where tech, science and ethics merge. Covering the reappearance of enigmatic and reclusive robotics expert Tim Lowe, Nikki is surprised to find herself at the centre of his latest work.

“The relationship between humans and their artificial counterparts runs right back to the myths of ancient Greece, where Pygmalion’s statue was brought to life with a kiss. It is the stuff of legend and of science fiction – part of our written history and a part of our imagined future.” Dr Kate Devlin

Pygmalion and Narcissus intertwine in this 21st century story of human relationships and loneliness, of our need for external validation and the search for self.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0002zhx)
Debbie Wiseman

Different Worlds

Donald Macleod talks to Debbie Wiseman about the importance of versatility in her work as a screen composer.

Debbie Wiseman has over two hundred credits for her music, ranging from television and film, to the concert hall and music for royal pageantry. Not only is she a multi-award winning composer, but also a pianist and conductor, often performing in and recording her own works. Wiseman also works as a Visiting Professor at a number of academic institutions including the Royal College of Music. As a composer for the concert hall, Wiseman has collaborated with Hayley Westenra, Stephen Fry, Nigel Havers, Vanessa Redgrave and Alan Titchmarsh. She has provided music for two royal anniversaries, including the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrated on the river Thames. Donald Macleod visits Debbie Wiseman at her home in London to discuss her long and varied career.

Today, they discuss the film composer's craft of evoking different worlds in music, and how important it is to be versatile. Her work has included such diverse projects as period drama, Wolf Hall, the intense and disturbing film, Haunted, and the horror comedy, Lesbian Vampire Killers. Wiseman also discusses her process of writing her recent concert piece, inspired by the signs of the Zodiac.

Haydn's final masterpiece

Joseph Haydn was born in an era when nature touched every part of life, and he died in an age of revolution. It’s all there in his final masterpiece The Seasons: an irresistibly tuneful panorama of 18th-century life and love in all its bustling, earthy exuberance.

With its winter storms and whistling ploughmen, hymns of praise and booze-fuelled revels, this sequel to The Creation was inspired by Haydn’s time in London, and written specially to appeal to British audiences.

In this concert, recorded at the Royal Festival Hall on London's South Bank, soloists Sophie Bevan, Mark Padmore and Andrew Foster-Williams are joined by the London Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra and conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.

Performed in English

This week we have a chance to hear little-performed chamber music & songs, sung by star Swedish lyric soprano Hillevi Martinpelto, by pioneering 19th-century Swedish women composers including Valborg Aulin, Alice Tegnér, Helena Munktell & Hélène Tham. Alice Tegnér found fame in the great many children’s songs that she composed which were exceedingly popular and many of them are still central to the Swedish children’s song tradition, while Helena Munktell studied in Paris under Émile Durand & Vincent d'Indy and was the first Swedish woman to write an opera. The centrepiece of today's recital is the 1846 Piano Trio by Clara Schumann which sparkles with intensity & virtuosity.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m0002ztv)
David Bailey, Don McCullin

The photographers, David Bailey and Don McCullin, came to prominence in the 1960s but their pictures did more than define a decade. Don McCullin's work in Vietnam, Biafra, Northern Ireland, Cyprus and the Middle East have come to epitomise what we mean by war photography and David Bailey's portraits of Jean Shrimpton, Mick Jagger and Catherine Deneuve established a new idiom for glamour. Yet fame has tended to obscure the full range of both men's work. Bailey, for example, has produced a huge volume of images conjuring up a spectral London as well as his portraits while McCulllin has infused the Somerset levels where he now lives with a haunted beauty. As Philip Dodd discovered when he visited David Bailey in his studio and caught up with Don McCullin on the eve of his Tate show both men have vivid memories of the Blitz and were transformed by their experience of National Service.

Don McCullin is on show at Tate Britain until May 6th 2019.
David Bailey: The Sixties is on show at Gagosian Gallery, Davies Street in London until March 30th.

The first-ever Late Junction Festival came into the world last week - two nights of music from leading lights of the left-field, presented on stage at EartH in East London by our triple-threat: Verity Sharp, Max Reinhardt and Nick Luscombe.

Tonight, highlights from the first night. Electronic artist Gazelle Twin has developed a unique voice in the British musical landscape. Her latest LP Pastoral digs deep into the English psyche, channelling its darkness and lacing it with satire, all performed in a costume which is half court jester, half football hooligan.

Drummer Seb Rochford’s new band Pulled By Magnets perform their first major venue with a set of new songs exploring the margins of composed and improvised music. The group features his long-time collaborator, saxophonist Pete Wareham (Polar Bear, Acoustic Ladyland) and bass-player, Neil Charles.

Verity Sharp is our guide in the studio.

Music and Pictures

Donald Macleod talks to Debbie Wiseman about composing for the screen.

Not only is she a multi-award winning composer, but also a pianist and conductor, often performing in and recording her own works. Wiseman also works as a Visiting Professor at a number of academic institutions including the Royal College of Music. As a composer for the concert hall, Wiseman has collaborated with Hayley Westenra, Stephen Fry, Nigel Havers, Vanessa Redgrave and Alan Titchmarsh.

Swedish Radio Showcase: Women Composers

Tarrodi, Bronsart, Peyron, Maier-Rontgen

Chamber music by Swedish women composers from the 18th to the 21st century including Ingeborg von Bronsart, Amanda Maier-Röntgen & the award-winning 37 year old Andrea Tarrodi. In today's varied programme, Hillevi Martinpelto sings Ingeborg von Bronsart's setting of Heinrich Heine in "Die Loreley". Tarrodi's "Empíreo" was inspired by Isaac Grünewald´s ceiling painting in the Stockholm Concert Hall, the venue of the concert. From the Medieval Latin, empyreus is the place in the highest heaven or outermost heavenly sphere of ancient and medieval cosmology, which was often thought to contain or be composed of the element of fire. To close the series, the premiere of Amanda Maier-Röntgen's Piano Trio. Unlike her violin sonata & concerto, the trio seems never to have received a public performance in her lifetime. It wasn't until 2016 that her descendants in Amsterdam found the scores among her surviving papers, so the trio can now be performed publicly for the first time.

Late Junction Festival - Carla dal Forno’s mixtape

Verity Sharp presents singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Carla dal Forno’s post-show DJ set from the Late Junction Festival.

Growing up in Melbourne, Carla was influenced by the punk-tinged, DIY approach of the local scene and soon began playing her own live shows, including a stint with cult indie group Mole House. The discovery of the label Blackest Ever Black opened up new musical horizons and projects as part of Fingers and Tarcar. She released her debut solo album You Know What It’s Like in 2016, described as ‘psychedelic folk delivered with (post-)punk economy’.

She has since moved to London, via Berlin, and now has a monthly NTS show, displaying her wide-ranging tastes and influences in post-punk, minimal synths and art rock. Her most recent release is an EP of covers titled ‘Top of the Pops’: versions of some of her favourite tracks by the likes of LiLiPUT, The Kiwi Animal and the B52s.

FRIDAY 08 MARCH 2019

FRI 00:00 Slow Radio (m0002zgk)
Three Gardens in Trinidad

Radio 3 transports listeners to Trinidad, just off the coast of Venezuela, immersing them in the sounds of the Caribbean island, with writer and actor Elisha Efua Bartels as a guide.

Through the sounds of three Port-of Spain gardens - her home by the river in Diego Martin, a garden in the lush valleys of St Ann’s, to a house up in the hills, Elisha reflects on the rich tropical sounds of the island. Frogs, hummingbirds, parrots and occasional rainfall form a slowly shifting, vivid soundscape. We pass through cycles of warm sunshine, then heavy tropical rain, each change reflected in the types of calls we hear from the birdlife and frogs. These aren’t rarefied idylls though - on a warm evening parrots noisily flock through, disturbing the peace. Sometimes a radio or the sound of a party drifts up from the valley below; dogs bark, cockerels crow.

Elisha describes the extent to which she’s both sustained by, and living at the mercy of, the wildlife around her – the parrots so loud she can’t hear the TV, the frogs soothing her to sleep at night - and how the sounds evoke a strong sense of 'home' for her.

Debbie Wiseman

Beyond Composing

Donald Macleod talks to Debbie Wiseman about her life outside of the composer's studio.

Debbie Wiseman has over two hundred credits for her music, ranging from television and film, to the concert hall and music for royal pageantry. Not only is she a multi-award winning composer, but also a pianist and conductor, often performing in and recording her own works. Wiseman also works as a Visiting Professor at a number of academic institutions including the Royal College of Music. As a composer for the concert hall, Wiseman has collaborated with Hayley Westenra, Stephen Fry, Nigel Havers, Vanessa Redgrave and Alan Titchmarsh. She has provided music for two royal anniversaries. Donald Macleod visits Debbie Wiseman at her home in London to discuss her long and varied career.

Today, Donald asks Debbie about her ventures into conducting, performing, and presenting.

With works by Bacewicz, Tailleferre, Farrenc, Cecilia McDowall, Gabriella Montero and Rebecca Clarke also on the menu, sit back and enjoy an uninterrupted sequence from over eight centuries of musical talent.


FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0002zyf)
World Premiere of Augusta Holmes's Roland Furieux

To celebrate International Women's Day, Valentina Peleggi conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales with a selection of music by women composers. The concert opens with the World Premiere of Augusta Holmes's Roland Furieux, nearly 150 years after it was completed. The work is based on Ludovico Ariosto’s epic poem Orlando Furioso, and has been painstakingly reconstructed from the original manuscript for this performance. Mariam Batsashvili joins the orchestra to perform Clara Schumann's celebrated Piano Concerto, a work which the composer completed before she was 16, yet which demonstrates a remarkable poise and maturity. After the interval, in which conductor Valentina Peleggi selects music from female composers who have inspired her, we will hear Joan Tower's Second Fanfare For the Uncommon Women, inspired by Copland's well-known Fanfare for the Common Man. Finally we hear Florence Price's 3rd Symphony, which is deeply rooted in the Chicago renaissance and in which the dance rhythms of the age brilliantly evoke urban life in 1940s America.

Live from Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas
