9.30am Building a Library: Laura Tunbridge listens to and compares recordings of Mozart’s piano quartets.

Mozart received a commission for three piano quartets in 1785 from the publisher Franz Anton Hoffmeister. This rather neglected instrumental combination inspired him to compose the first quartet, which was – according to Hoffmeister - so intricate and difficult for the amateur market, that he released Mozart from his obligation to write the other two. Such was Mozart’s enthusiasm for this ensemble that he wrote a second quartet regardless, and together with the first, they form the earliest masterpieces of the genre.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0006ffr)
Music, roots and heritage

Tom Service talks to two UK composers with fascinating backgrounds: Daniel Kidane, of Russian and Eritrean roots, whose new piece 'Woke' will receive its premiere at this summer's Last Night of the Proms, and Erika Fox on being a refugee from Nazi Austria, growing up in Britain.

What do jazz and blues have in common with 17th-century baroque music? Tom visits the Whitechapel Gallery in London in the company of the Turner Prize-nominated artist Helen Cammock to find out how she managed to connect these genres in her work through a sense of loss, mourning and lament. Also with Tom and Helen at the exhibition is the conductor, harpsichordist and early music specialist, Christian Curnyn.

And what is Audio Diversity? Tom talks to the composer Andrew Hugill about a project involving concerts and conferences, responding to the idea that not everybody hears in the same way, and that this needs to be reflected in the concert hall and beyond.


SAT 12:30 This Classical Life (m0006ffz)
Jess Gillam with... Heloise Werner

Jess Gillam is joined by the singer and composer Heloise Werner, a member of the young new music ensemble, The Hermes Experiment. Their music includes Shostakovich's Festive Oveture and Strauss' epic tone poem Also Sprach Zarathustra, plus tracks by Meredith Monk and Graham Fitkin.

From musical beginnings in a carnival band, to being the first ever saxophone finalist in BBC Young Musician, and appearances at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018 and at this year’s BAFTA awards, Jess is one of today’s most engaging and charismatic classical performers. Each week on This Classical Life, she is joined by another young musician to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.

This Classical Life is also available as a podcast on BBC Sounds.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0006fg9)
Musical love stories and shimmering strings with pianist Lucy Parham

Lucy Parham guides us through a wide range of music from ballet scores to Brahms. She includes a song by Strauss that makes you catch your breath, and an underplayed work by César Franck, which Lucy recorded at just 17 years old.

She also explores pianists she admires: Bill Evans for his improvisation, Clara Schumann for her composition, and Pierre-Laurent Aimard for his brilliant technical skill. Plus, Lucy presents her passion for combining music and words with Mendelssohn and Joni Mitchell.

At 2 o’clock Lucy’s Must Listen piece is by a composer who tragically died in World War One. It’s a song that captures the pointlessness of war through interesting harmonies but also has a beauty and elegance.

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

SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (m0006fgl)
Daniel Pemberton

Matthew Sweet meets the British composer Daniel Pemberton who started writing documentary scores aged 17. He's since collaborated with Ridley Scott on The Counselor, Guy Ritchie on The Man from U.N.C.L.E, and Danny Boyle on his Steve Jobs biopic and the newly released Yesterday, for which he wrote original music and Beatles arrangements.

He talks to Matthew about changing his score to All the Money in the World when Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer, manipulating elephant noises through EMS synthesizers in Somerset, and taking inspiration from 'the sound of capitalism' - the famous New York Stock Exchange Bell.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0006fjt)
Harry Enfield

In the early 1990s Harry Enfield went from being a part-time milkman to one of our biggest comedy stars, and many of the characters he created have become embedded in our national psyche - Loadsamoney, Kevin the Teenager, Tim Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, Stavros and Smashie and Nicey, to name just a few. He started out on Spitting Image and Saturday Night Live, and his television shows in the 1990s reinvigorated British sketch comedy, gaining him more than 13 million viewers a week. Films, documentaries, and more comedy series have followed, as well as a hugely successful theatre show with his comedy partner of nearly 30 years, Paul Whitehouse.

Harry tells Michael Berkeley about how his journey from punk to opera - his great musical passion - developed when he was living in a council flat in his twenties and borrowing a record a week from the library. We hear parts of two Verdi operas that inspired the theme tunes for his first two television series.

He reveals why he’s chosen the aria Largo al Factotum from The Barber of Seville in tribute to Paul Whitehouse and we hear a moving performance by John Tomlinson as Boris Godunov.

Music by Elgar and by Schubert brings back memories of Harry's time at university and he talks movingly about family life and his relationship with his father Edward, who enjoyed a late-flowering career as a journalist and broadcaster. And he quotes a less than flattering entry about his grandparents from Virginia Woolf’s diary.
Harry doesn’t usually do interviews so it’s a real pleasure to hear him talking about his life through the music he loves.

Puppetry in opera

Musician and director Thomas Guthrie explains the history of the use of puppets in Baroque and Classical opera, arguing that puppets are still powerful tools with which to tell operatic stories today. That moment when the audience suspends disbelief and believes that what they know to be inanimate is a living and breathing character – that magical moment – is also when their ears open, and the music can make its full impact.

Tom Service considers drums - one of the most ancient and primitive instruments, yet capable of great sophistication in the context of the classical orchestra or a jazz band. He discusses contemporary composition for drums with percussionist Serge Vuille, and looks at non-western drum traditions with Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0006fk5)
Nature and the City

Poets and composers have long sung the virtues of the green spaces and the wildlife encountered in our urban centres. Ottorino Respighi celebrates the birds and pine trees of Rome, and Rufus Wainwright sings through all weathers and the wild flowers of Berlin’s Tiergarten park. Matthew Arnold, in Kensington Gardens, marvels at the 'endless, active life' he finds all about him at his feet and in the air.

Human cities might, though, be viewed as islands too, pushing out and paving over the natural world, towering evidence of the anthropocentric. For the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke, 'the big cities are not true; they betray the day, the night, animals and children' while Edna St Vincent Millay mourns the loss of the 'thin and sweet' music of dancing tree-leaves, drowned out in the 'shrieking city air' of horns and alarms and industry evoked in the music of Steve Reich. And as some writers begin to dream of green hills and escaping the din of the metropolis, the forces of nature are already gathering inside the city walls: rabbits, herds of deer, bears and the sea begin to re-wild and reclaim the human spaces, reminding us that, for all our skyscrapers, we are not separate from but of nature.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0006fk7)
The Signal-Man

A signalman on a remote stretch of East Yorkshire railway is visited by a lone traveller in this drama-documentary written by poet Ross Sutherland. Inspired by a Charles Dickens ghost story, and featuring nature recordings by renowned wildlife recordist Chris Watson.

The Oxmardyke Gate Box is one of the last in the UK to use antiquated mechanical bells to carry semaphore-style messages up and down the line. Soon this system of “absolute block signalling” will pass into history, as computers take over. The bells, like the humans who listen for them, will no longer be needed.

In this feature fusing fact and fiction, the poet Ross Sutherland visits Oxmardyke to meet Dave Beckett, one of the last operators to use the bells. From their elevated position, the pair gaze out over the hinterland near the muddy Humber estuary. It’s an area of villages with Anglo-Saxon names: Gilberdyke, Broomfleet and Saxfleet, with remains of the monastery where the Knights Templar would return after international travel. The flat, reclaimed land has an eerie quality, accentuated by a strange local phenomenon known as a temperature inversion (where high density cold air becomes trapped by warm wetter air) causing sound to carry further, meaning passing trains loom larger and echo further than they ordinarily would.

SUN 19:15 New Generation Thinkers (m0006fkc)
Sir Isaac Newton and the Philosopher's Stone

Dafydd Mills Daniel investigates Sir Isaac Newton's more obscure studies in alchemy, hoping to find out what they can tell us about modern notions of religion, science and reason.

Famous falling apple victim Sir Isaac Newton is known for his formation of the theories of gravity, calculus and motion. Yet while we celebrate Newton's scientific achievements to this day, other areas of his studies remain almost entirely unheard of; his theology, which was spurred on by his devout christian beliefs and his research into the occult world of Alchemy.

Much of Newton's writing details his search for the Philosopher's Stone, a rock made of the material God used to create the Universe. Theologian and former Religious Education teacher Dafydd Mills Daniel goes on a trail to discover what Newton the Alchemist can tell us about our world today. Is the way that Newton blurred the boundaries of faith, science and magic irrelevant in our modern, secular age? Or does his legacy live on?

Dafydd goes in search of answers from pagans, theoretical physicists and even the great natural philosopher himself.

Presented by Dafydd Mills Daniel and Produced by Sam Peach, with readings by Chris Pavlo.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b07y9qyd)
The Visa Affair

In 1965 Joe Orton visited the American Embassy in London to get a visa to attend the Broadway production of his outrageous West End hit 'Entertaining Mr Sloane' and was caught up in a Kafkaesque world of oppression and paranoia. He was forced into absurd interrogations and accused of "moral turpitude." In the mid-1960s Orton was one of the most talked about new playwrights of the decade - even attracting the attention of the Beatles to write them a new film.

Writer Jake Arnott has uncovered a previously unpublished story by Orton about his this encounter. This story becomes the heart of a new drama, in which Arnott also draws on letters, archive, newspaper reports and personal testimony to create a darkly comic drama revealing Orton's life and the world that he lived in.

Orton's first commission as a playwright was from Radio 3's predecessor the Third Programme in 1964 and this new play was originally commissioned as part of the station's 70th season in October 2016, celebrating seven decades of pioneering music and culture.

In 'The Visa Affair', Orton has just found success in the UK after years of obscurity, and Broadway beckons, but events in his past threaten his American dream. As embassy staff challenge him about his criminal record we follow a labyrinthine struggle as Joe is forced to defer to authority, deny his sexuality, and to look again at his subversive acts and how they affected his writing and work.

Throughout, Orton plays a game of hide and seek with bureaucracy - evading its surveillance whilst revealing its absurdity.

Orton's own narrative voice forms the heart of this drama. It is a rich source of character, dialogue and unfolding plot. Writer Jake Arnott says: "Though his work often seems surreal, Orton always insisted that what he wrote was reality. This is real. What excites me about this project is the opportunity to dramatise a hidden work: Orton's own encounter with the kind of absurd bureaucracy that he brilliantly depicts in his plays."

SUN 20:45 Radio 3 in Concert (m0006fkk)
Babi Yar in Rotterdam

Shostakovich's 13th Symphony, a picture of life in the Soviet Union. With Fiona Talkington.

From Anne Frank to Robert Burns, Shostakovich manages to create in his 13th Symphony a snapshot of Soviet life and interests in the early 1960s. There's the horror of Nazi anti-Semitic atrocities such as the 'Babi Yar' massacre which gives the symphony its epithet, and is the title of a poem by Yevgeny Yevtushenko. In it, the poet shows a deep interest in Robert Burns, who many soviet composers go back to again and again for inspiration. And then he puts that in the context of the everyday living conditions inside the Soviet Union, like the empty shelves and endless shop queues, and the constant fear of the secret police.

For Shostakovich, all these things and more come together in the poetry of Yevgeny Yevtushenko, who returned the compliment, saying about Shostakovich's symphony: 'his music made the poem greater'.

Soprano Lore Binon, recorder player Jowan Merckx, lutenist Sofie Vanden Eynde and harpist Sarah Louise Reidy bring us the full gamut of love, from the cicada who hopes to die singing in the heat of the day to the tears of an abandoned lover. Simon Heighes presents.


SUN 23:00 Sean Shibe's Guitar Zone (m0006fkt)
Joy and Melancholy

In this fifth episode, Sean reveals the ‘interval of sadness’ that permeates the lute music of John Dowland and discovers various other ways the guitar and its relatives can express melancholy. And then at the opposite end of the emotional spectrum Sean plays music by Steve Reich and Luigi Boccherini that has him laughing out loud because of the pure joy that it conveys.

Sean Shibe is a young, award-winning musician who’s changing the way people listen to the guitar. In this six-part series he presents a personal choice of vibrant and varied pieces by composers from Spanish Renaissance masters to Steve Reich and Georges Lentz, with performers including Julian Bream, Elizabeth Kenny, Andrés Segovia, John Williams, Vincent Dumestre and Pepe Romero. Sean discovers the characters of the extended guitar family, from the oud, lute and vihuela to the Brahms guitar, decachord and electric guitar, and expresses straight-talking views on players of the past and present who have helped shape his own unique approach to the art of guitar playing. With his guitar on his knee he'll also be showing us what to listen for and what’s physically possible on the instrument.

Throughout the series we’ll hear Sean’s philosophical, intellectual and above all emotional take on the music he knows so well. He opens a door into a world that’s full of subtlety and contrast in its expression of culture and style. It’s a world that invites us in with all sorts of mesmeric and surprising sounds.

CPE Bach (1744-1788)

CPE Bach and the Nazi Hoard

This week we look at CPE Bach's music and reputation in the light of the sensational rediscovery of much his archive in 1999. Throughout the week, we'll hear recent recordings of this 'new' music. In this episode, Donald Macleod tells the story of the loss – and eventual rediscovery in 1999 – of much of CPE Bach’s music, following a fascinating journey.

From 1750, for the next 60 years the name "Bach" was almost exclusively associated with the initials "CPE". Born in 1714, Carl Philipp Emanuel's influence resonates to this day: his book on keyboard playing permanently changed the practice; his music changed the direction of travel. Bach left his life's work tidy and well organised on his death in 1788, with most works still in print. His estate was largely sold to Felix Mendelssohn's father Abraham, but by the 1800s, CPE Bach's music had all but disappeared.

The collection of CPE Bach manuscripts found its way into the library of the Sing-Akademie in Berlin, one of the most prestigious performing institutions in the Prussian capital, closely associated with the royal court. This was the finest collection of Bach family manuscripts in the world. In the face of Allied bombing in 1943, the Sing-Akademie was one of over 500 mostly private collections from the Berlin area to be evacuated. It was carefully packaged up into 14 crates and sent to a remote castle in Silesia, in present-day Poland. As the war ended, the collection was found by the Red Army and disappeared from public view for the next 50 years.

MON 19:00 In Tune Mixtape (m0006fgp)
Panic

Our Classical Century continues with Birtwistle's 'Panic' written for the Last Night of the Proms in 1995. A work taking its inspiration from the Classical god 'Pan' and the worship of Dionysus. The followers of Dionysus were particularly known for their religious rites fuelled by plenty of wine and debauchery that have come down to us across the ages with the title 'Bacchanales' (after 'Bacchus' the Roman version of Dionysus). These would reach a level of intoxication and emotional excess approaching ecstasy and even terror.

There was also a calmer, more reflective side to Pan as he is often depicted with his 'Pan Pipes', made from the transfigured 'Syrinx' according to Ovid's Metamorphoses.

So in tonight's MixTape we have both aspects, Debussy looking for Syrinx with piano and solo flute and the others choosing the more energetic path, whether it's Nielsen, Saint-Saëns or Jaques Ibert, all begun by Harrison Birtwistle's 'Panic'.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b09sqvc2)
Are You Paying Attention?

A Worldwide Preoccupation

In the first of five essays, writer and journalist Madeleine Bunting begins a week-long exploration of why attention has become a major social concern. Attention, she finds, is now big business - where we cast our eyes on a computer screen, and for how long, has become a key factor in advertising. Attention is something we both 'pay' and want to 'attract' - and for a journalist, Madeleine admits, it can be quite addictive. And, as so many people search for their 15 minutes of micro-fame online, getting as much attention as we can seems to have become a worldwide preoccupation. How worried should we be?

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006ff9)
CPE Bach (1744-1788)

A Very Modern Composer

This week we look at CPE Bach's music and reputation in the light of the sensational rediscovery of much his archive in 1999. Throughout the week, we'll hear recent recordings of this 'new' music. In this episode, Donald Macleod explores contemporary angles within CPE Bach's life and music, as well as his life at court in Berlin.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was many things in his lifetime: composer, virtuoso harpsichord player and improviser extraordinaire, author, businessman – publishing his own music – biographer – of his father and other members of his family, and teacher. As the growing amateur tradition of music-making among the middle classes required pieces that were playable domestically, Bach was quick to appreciate the potential for him to fill the gap.

Publishing rivalled composition and performance for importance in his professional life. Much like musicians using crowd-funding sites today, Bach introduced a subscription system for his fans, in which each work's printing and distribution were financed by prepublication sales. Haydn, Mozart, Weber and Beethoven all studied Bach's Essay on keyboard playing attentively. It's a practical guide for performers, with chapters on ornamentation, performance and improvisation.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b09sqw6r)
Are You Paying Attention?

Multitaskers and Gorillas

The writer and journalist Madeleine Bunting continues her exploration of the different ways in which we pay, or fail to pay, attention. Inevitably, she argues, attention to one thing always implies withdrawal of it from others, and in our digital age, the battle for our attention, however brief, has become fiercer than ever. And, Madeleine warns, those who think they can successfully multi-task are probably deluding themselves - as the famous 'gorilla experiment', in which subjects failed to see a man in a gorilla costume walking into a basketball match has demonstrated.

CPE Bach (1744-1788)

The Sentimental Style

This week we look at CPE Bach's music and reputation in the light of the sensational rediscovery of much his archive in 1999. Throughout the week, we'll hear recent recordings of this 'new' music. In this episode, Donald Macleod explores the sound of CPE Bach's music, written in the 'Empfindsamer Stil'.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s music sits somewhere between the high baroque of his father, JS Bach, and the stripping back of ornamentation by Haydn and Mozart. It’s often described using the German word for sensitive or sentimental, 'Empfindsam'.

The Empfindsamer style aimed to express ‘true and natural’ feelings, in contrast to the baroque, and drew on a very wide range of cultural influences: poets, painters, philosophers and writers, in particular Laurence Sterne, whose Sentimental Journey was translated into German as Empfindsame Reise. All of that is far from the almost exclusively theological focus of JS Bach. For Carl Philipp Emanuel, music wasn’t about technical brilliance, but all about stirring the emotions of the listener. Bach believed that music should reflect human nature, and hold up a mirror to the emotional world of man. The emotions should be stirred, and this should have a cathartic effect.

For Madeleine herself, the only way to regain her ability to pay deep attention and articulate complex ideas was to cut herself off from digital media for a while; and she recalls how she regained her ability to write during a long and lonely trip to the beaches of the Outer Hebrides.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006fg2)
CPE Bach (1744-1788)

Reinvention in Hamburg

This week we look at CPE Bach's music and reputation in the light of the sensational rediscovery of much his archive in 1999. Throughout the week, we'll hear recent recordings of this 'new' music. In this episode, Donald Macleod explores the sound of CPE Bach's music, written in the 'Empfindsamer Stil'.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s music sits somewhere between the high baroque of his father, JS Bach, and the stripping back of ornamentation by Haydn and Mozart. It’s often described using the German word for sensitive or sentimental, 'Empfindsam'.

The Empfindsamer style aimed to express ‘true and natural’ feelings, in contrast to the baroque, and drew on a very wide range of cultural influences: poets, painters, philosophers and writers, in particular Laurence Sterne, whose Sentimental Journey was translated into German as Empfindsame Reise. All of that is far from the almost exclusively theological focus of JS Bach. For Carl Philipp Emanuel, music wasn’t about technical brilliance, but all about stirring the emotions of the listener. Bach believed that music should reflect human nature, and hold up a mirror to the emotional world of man. The emotions should be stirred, and this should have a cathartic effect.

Celebrating the BBC Concert Orchestra: The Light of the World

An outstanding cast joins the BBC Concert Orchestra in a recent, highly acclaimed recording of the rarely heard Sullivan oratorio The Light of the World.

Commissioned for and first produced at the Birmingham Musical Festival of 1873, The Light of the World is Arthur Sullivan’s great oratorio on the life of Christ. Although regularly performed during the composer’s lifetime, changing fashions gradually condemned the work to obscurity.

Occasional revivals have failed to make the case for it, primarily because it was not understood that The Light of the World is essentially a dramatic work, rather than a purely religious one.

Presented by Kate Molleson.

Cleveland Ohio and the Environmental Catastrophe of 1969

Philip Dodd hosts a special programme recorded in Cleveland, Ohio. Once a booming manufacturing metropolis located on the southern shore of Lake Erie, this 'rust belt' city has for many years been synonymous with industrial decay and high unemployment. For many the city's fortunes changed in 1969 when industrial pollution on the Cuyahoga river caught fire causing an environmental catastrophe, earning the city the moniker 'the mistake on the lake', a pejorative term it still struggles to shake off today.

David Stradling is the author of Where the River Burned
Chinese-raised New York artist Cai Guo-Qiang has been commissioned as part of Cuyahoga50.

Are You Paying Attention?

Prayer and Snake Oil

In the fourth in her series of Essays on attention, the writer and journalist Madeleine Bunting explores some key moments in the history of how we have paid attention, or failed to do so. The church, she finds, has perfected the use of ritual to focus our attention; and the habit of attention, as French mystic Simone Weil argued, can even be seen as the substance of prayer. But similar ways of attracting and holding attention have also been put to far more sinister use.

Slow Radio: Dusk to dawn at the Isle of Wight Zoo.

On the beautiful Sandown Beach on the Isle of Wight stands a historic fort, now home to the Isle of Wight Zoo. It is run by the Wildheart Trust, which promotes the survival of endangered species, and is well known as a centre for rescued big cats who, along with pocket-sized primates and other even smaller animals have a starring role in this portrayal of the sounds of the zoo. The programme moves from dusk, as the animals prepare for sleep, through the small hours of the night, when the silence is punctuated by the sound of snoring, to dawn and the beginning of a new day.

CPE Bach (1744-1788)

A Bid for Posterity

This week we look at CPE Bach's music and reputation in the light of the sensational rediscovery of much his archive in 1999. Throughout the week, we'll hear recent recordings of this 'new' music. In this episode, Donald Macleod relives the once-in-a-lifetime moment when the first manuscript was drawn out of a crate in Kiev to reveal the stamp "Sing-Akademie zu Berlin", and the magnitude of the treasure trove was revealed. He explores how the discovery has changed the way Bach and his music is seen in 2019.

The collection of Bach family manuscripts was thought to be destroyed or irretrievably lost. But in the late 1950s, a few choir books from the Sing-Akademie were returned from Moscow to East Berlin, suggesting the collection may have found its way to Moscow. Eventually a retired librarian in Kiev revealed that restricted music deposits at the Kiev Conservatoire had been transferred to another institution in the Ukraine in 1973.

Finally, the music was traced to the Archive-Museum of Literature and Art in Kiev. The excitement of the discovery spread around the world – the Music historian and Bach biographer Christoph Wolff said, “All of a sudden you understand the creative mind of a great composer. As an historian, I would have to say this was clearly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I don't think it will happen again. There is no other collection of that magnitude and that importance around.”

Are You Paying Attention?

Beyond the Crisis of Attention

In this series of essays, writer and journalist Madeleine Bunting has been exploring some of the pitfalls of the digital revolution: in particular, how it can scatter and manipulate our attention and prevent us from focusing deeply on any one idea. But are the consequences of constant multi-tasking really all negative? Her children, Madeleine admits, would say no - they are capable of doing things on three different screens at once while doing their homework, and they still come away with A*s. Madeleine herself is more dubious about the benefits of scattering her attention too widely - and in this final essay, she also explores whether Mindfulness meditation can be an antidote to the crisis of attention.
