9.30am Building a Library: Iain Burnside listens to and compares recordings of Richard Strauss's Four Last Songs.

Strauss composed his great swansong for the female voice when he was 84. They are settings of the German poets Hermann Hesse and Joseph von Eichendorff and the themes of death and reconciliation are portrayed in music of the most aching wistfulness and melancholy. They were more or less his final completed works and are among the most popular pieces in the orchestral song repertoire. The list of sopranos who have recorded these songs is a roll call of the most beautiful voices of the last 70 years. Iain Burnside has a very difficult choice to make.

Jess Gillam with... Martin James Bartlett

Jess Gillam is joined by the pianist Martin James Bartlett, a former winner of BBC Young Musician who has just released his debut album 'Love and Death'. They share music from the explosive overture to Glinka's Ruslan and Lyudmila to contemplative Peter Gabriel, a classic recording of Tchaikovsky's 4th symphony and Max Richter.

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, Jess will be joined by young musicians to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.

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


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0006sbp)
Pianist Mariam Batsashvili discovers music from the cosmic to the intimate

Mariam Batsashvili is a young pianist who’ll be walking on to the Royal Albert Hall stage next month to play Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto at the BBC Proms. Today her Inside Music choices range from love and sorrow expressed by Fritz Kreisler, to the most accessible side of Richard Wagner. Plus she uncovers the charming nature of the harpsichord as conjured up by Handel, and how love and friendship is a powerful ingredient in Verdi’s opera Don Carlos.

Mariam also explains how she imagines Vivaldi’s Winter from his Four Seasons as a very old person who has rediscovered a childlike innocence, and finds the elderly Rossini paying gentle tribute to operetta composer Offenbach.

At 2 o’clock Mariam’s Must Listen work is a piece she recorded as part of Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme. This music, says Mariam, reveals its composer to be profoundly thoughtful, reflective, and above all, kind.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b099vfgc)
Verdi's Otello: Kaufmann at 50

In celebration of Jonas Kaufmann's 50th, another chance to hear him sing the title role of Verdi's Otello from the Royal Opera House, recorded in 2017

Verdi's great Shakespearean tragedy of revenge, this gripping drama about the human psyche pushed to the limits by jealousy stars Jonas Kaufmann as the great general brought low by the evil schemes of his ensign Iago, sung by Marco Vratogna. Maria Agresta is Otellos's innocent and falsely accused wife, Desdemona, in Keith Warner's new production which emphasises the claustrophobia of this all-too-human tragedy. The Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden are conducted by Antonio Pappano. James Naughtie presents this performance, recorded in July 2017 and his guest in the box is Flora Willson.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0006sw7)
James Burke

As the 50th anniversary of the moon landings approaches, James Burke talks to Michael Berkeley about the music that brings back memories of the heady days when, new to science broadcasting, he was chosen by the BBC to lead the coverage of the Apollo Missions and the moment the first human stepped onto the Moon.

James Burke has the rare gift of making complex ideas comprehensible to a wide audience – and providing a great deal of entertainment along the way. He began his BBC career on Tomorrow’s World, and his series Connections, which offered a new perspective on the history of science and technology, was a television landmark. James is the author of more than a dozen books, and his series about his long-running project The Knowledge Web was broadcast recently on Radio 4.

The surprising thing about James Burke is that he studied Middle English at university and got into science broadcasting quite by accident while working in Italy. He tells Michael how it happened and plays a Neapolitan song which reminds him of the years he spent there as a young man. He chooses music that reminds him of his musical childhood – Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet which he played at school, and a piece by Handel which he sang. His lifelong love of playing the guitar is reflected in music by Albeniz, and James makes some truly startling predictions about how technology is about to utterly transform our lives.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (m0006sw9)
Leonardo: Music and Science

A concert of music from the time of Leonardo da Vinci given by the instrumentalists & vocalists of Ensemble Lucidarium at the York Early Music Festival.

Leonardo da Vinci and his contemporaries considered music to be a mirror in which mathematical concepts could be applied and proven; polyphony in particular was a
field for experimentation where research brought tangible results. Leonardo’s designs for musical instruments – a combination of studied scientific improvements
and impossible dreams – still exercise a fascination over us today, even if they occupied only a fraction of his sketchbooks. He certainly knew how to sing and play an instrument himself, while his professional life brought him into close contact with some of the greatest composers of his day.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b2jhhf)
What does ancient history really sound like?

From Paleolithic caves to Roman arenas, we know that music was made, and even what instruments were played - but what did the music sound like? Tom attempts to find out, with help from flautist Anna Friederike Potengowski, composer Neil Brand, and media historian David Hendy. Journey with them from the prehistoric to ancient Rome, via the "modern stone age" town of Bedrock.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b09kjncm)
The Moon

What would Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata sound like if it was played by the Moon? Tune in to this evening's edition of Words and Music and you can hear for yourself, thanks to a piece conceived by the sound artist Katie Paterson. Katie's piece, Earth-Moon-Earth, is part of a programme which celebrates the Moon - whether metaphorical green cheese or cruel, silvery goddess.
The Moon has always dazzled and puzzled us. Composers such as Beethoven, Chopin and Schoenberg and writers such as Larkin, Auden and Emily Dickinson have all fallen under her spell, and tonight's programme, featuring the actors Fenella Woolgar and Patrick O'Kane, is an invitation to succumb once more to her enchantment.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0006swg)
Cold War in Full Swing - Louis Armstrong in the GDR

Jazz and communist East Germany seem unlikely bedfellows. Yet in 1965 Louis Armstrong became the first American entertainer to play jazz there at the height of the Cold War. East Germans celebrated Armstrong, and his visit became a propaganda victory for East Germany, helping it to boost its reputation in the wake of its oppressive government building the Berlin Wall in 1961.

On his brief and only tour through East Germany Armstrong played to packed houses. His popularity surprised the authorities very much considering not one record of him was available before 1965 and your passion for the music could land you in prison.

Kevin Le Gendre peeks through the former Iron Curtain to discover the dangers jazz lovers faced to pave the way for these legendary concerts to happen while tracing the tour. He speaks to jazz journalist Karlheinz Drechsel who first risked his career for jazz but then, amazingly, had the privilege to accompany Louis Armstrong on the tour and announce his concerts. He tells Kevin what it was like meeting Louis Armstrong and seeing beyond the smile and laughter that Louis Armstrong was famous for. Armstrong not only had to navigate political sensitivities on the Cold War front between East and West, but also on the home front in the US, when questioned about the Civil Rights Movement, which was at its peak.

The tour left a big impression on both sides. Armstrong was very taken by the enthusiastic welcome he received and East Germany, far from the authorities’ intentions, developed a Free Jazz scene that became an unexpected export hit.

Speakers include the journalists Karlheinz Drechsel, Siegfried Schmidt-Joos and Leslie Colitt; the jazz fan Volker Stiehler; the authors Ricky Riccardi and Stephan Schulz; pianist Ulrich Gumpert; and Roland Trisch, who worked at East Germany’s Artists Agency, which enabled Louis Armstrong’s tour. Archive material of the Selma to Montgomery march in Alabama on 7 March 1965 is courtesy of the Robert H Jackson Center.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m0006swj)
The Masque of Anarchy

Ian McMillan introduces a commemoration of the Peterloo Massacre to mark the two-hundred year anniversary of the events of 16 August 1819.

Maxine Peake performs Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem of protest The Masque of Anarchy. Shelley was compelled to respond to the massacre in which cavalrymen charged campaigners protesting against the restrictive parliamentary representation of the time in St Peters Field Manchester leaving 15 dead and 700 injured. Recorded only a few miles from where it happened, Maxine Peake”s performance makes the poem - a call for political action - resonate for a contemporary audience.

We also hear eyewitness accounts from Samuel Bamford a radical reformer who led the group from Middleton and his wife Jemima Bamford performed by Jason Done and Christine Bottomley. Contemporary ballads written in the aftermath are sung by Jennifer Read.

The Masque of Anarchy, with a specially composed sound design by Peter Rice, was directed by Sarah Frankcom. The eyewitness accounts were directed by Nadia Molinari.

This commemoration of the Peterloo Massacre was a BBC North Production, produced by Susan Roberts.


SUN 20:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0006swl)
Revolution, Destruction and a Nobel Prize

Chopin's Warsaw piano, recreated for the first time in this concert from Polish period ensemble Collegium 1704 and pianist Krzysztof Ksiazek and presented by Fiona Talkington.

Around 1815, a certified organ-maker Fryderyk Buchholtz opened a piano-making workshop in Warsaw, where a student Chopin would drop in to test his new pieces. By 1825 Chopin's family could buy and install a Buchholz instrument in their apartment, where Chopin created many of his early masterpieces including both of his piano concertos. Chopin left Warsaw in 1830, never to return, and his piano was inherited by his sister Izabella, who took it with her to her new apartment near the lavish Zamoyski Palace when she married, and where in 1863 Tsarist soldiers, in retribution for a failed assassination attempt on the Tsarist governor of Poland, ransacked the palace and nearby homes. Chopin's Buchholz piano was thrown through an upper floor window and it shattered on the pavement below.

There are so few surviving Buchholtz pianos that it has taken until now to get sufficient information together to attempt a re-creation, which is by period keyboard specialist Paul McNulty.

And there is Tchaikovksy from the 2018 Nobel Prize Concert in Stockholm. Every year there is a classical concert which happens alongside the awarding of the Nobel Prizes and last year the central work was a symphony by Tchaikovsky. The Fourth Symphony begins with a brass fanfare depicting 'Fate'. As Tchaikovsky wrote to his patron and the symphony's dedicatee Madam Nazheda von Meck: 'the fatal power which prevents one from attaining the goal of happiness ... There is nothing to be done but to submit to it and lament in vain'. In tonight's performance the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is conducted by Karina Canellakis.

La nascita dell'opera (The birth of opera)

Soprano Magdalena Kožená and La Cetra perform in a concert that mines the dramatic wealth of early Italian opera. From that great operatic pioneer Monteverdi to Marula, composers revelled in the dramatic potential of the new form to explore the depths of human emotions through the power of the voice. Works by Uccellini and Castello sit alongside a passionate aria from Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea and his opera in all but name, the 'scena' Il Combattimento di Tancredi e Clorinda in a concert recorded at 2018's Verbier Festival.


SUN 23:00 Percussion Century (m0002065)
Multicoloured

Brash, visceral, thrilling, terrifying. Ethereal, delicate, exquisite, meditative.

Colin Currie presents a celebration of a musical family that spans the sonic spectrum in a unique and almost limitless fashion: percussion.

Colin has been called “one of the greatest musicians in the world today” by none other than Steve Reich, who knows a thing or two about percussion, and in this, the first of three episodes, Colin introduces a taste of the huge array of colours and sounds that the percussion family can conjure up.

Over the past century the percussion section has been freed from its previous role as rhythmic accompaniment and occasional sound effect, and has taken centre stage in an explosion of music written for solo percussion, percussion ensembles, chamber groups and orchestras.

In this episode, music by Messiaen, Britten and Stravinsky sits alongside tracks by Bjork, John Williams and Manu Delago. And instruments dating back hundreds of years mix with new instruments from the 21st century creating beautiful, surprising and unexpected aural delights.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006ss6)
James MacMillan (b 1959)

A grandfather, a recorder and a confession

Sir James MacMillan is reflecting on his prolific life in composition as he celebrates his 60th birthday this week.

He was born 16 July 1959 in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire, but grew up in the East Ayrshire town of Cumnock. His grandfather introduced him to brass band music and his primary teacher taught him the recorder. The combination of these musical experiences sparked a lifelong passion in James to make and create music of his own.

He studied composition at the University of Edinburgh with Kenneth Leighton and at Durham University with John Casken. A trip to Darmstadt International Summer Course confirmed in him a longing to build on musical traditions of the past rather than abandoning all that has gone before.
He caught the attention of the classical establishment with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's premiere of The Confession of Isobel Gowdie at the BBC Proms in 1990. Isobel Gowdie was one of many women executed for witchcraft in 17th-century Scotland.

Nonsense Madrigals in Wonderland

Ligeti's Nonsense Madrigals are the source of inspiration for this mixtape. Several of the movements in Ligeti's collection take texts from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, and this theme continues with the Queen of Hearts' Tango from Joby Talbot's ballet. Next comes a pair of madrigals - one by the madrigal king himself, Monteverdi, and more unusually, a madrigal for flute and piano by Philippe Gaubert - followed by a pair of modern-day Alices (Ott and Coote). Finally, we return to the madcap nature of Ligeti's madrigals with the absurdist humour of Gerald Barry's The Importance of being Earnest and Milhaud’s ballet Le boeuf sur le toit.


MON 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0006ssj)
Double trouble

Leading up to Friday's First Night of the Proms, Georgia Mann presents some of Europe's top orchestras in highlights from this season.

When players from the European Union Youth Orchestra set up the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in 1981 it quickly became established as one of the world's finest chamber orchestras and has consistently performed with top-rank soloists and conductors. This concert, recorded in March in the Bruges Concertgebouw as part of the International Brussels Music Festival, features Vilde Frang and Lawrence Power in Mozart's great double concerto for violin and viola and ends with his final symphony and summing-up of his composing genius, the 'Jupiter'. It begins with diabolical Liszt: a rare chance to hear Two Episodes from Lenau's Faust performed together, as Liszt intended. The solemn 'Procession by Night', by turns bleak and comforting, is followed by one of Liszt's greatest successes, Mephisto's wild 'Dance in the Village Inn'.

Mise-en-scène

Sidney Lumet and the Crisis of Liberalism

Michael Goldfarb remembers the political and social mise-en-scène of films from the 1960s and 1970s, including work by Sam Peckinpah, Sidney Lumet and Derek Jarman. "Mise-en-scène" means the arrangement of the scenery, props, on the set of a film or, more broadly, the social setting or surroundings of an event.

Sidney Lumet embodied through his work the high tide and long decline of New Deal Liberalism. That may or may not have been his intention.

In films like The Hill and Network, he (and his screenwriters) brilliantly show humane, reasonable people under inhumane, illiberal pressure. After terrible ordeals, liberal order is re-established and progress resumes. The message is that justice in the end triumphs.

James MacMillan (b 1959)

Happy 60th Birthday!

Sir James MacMillan is reflecting on his prolific life in composition as he celebrates his 60th birthday this week.

He discusses his regret at joining the Communist Party at the age of 14 because of the hurt it caused his grandfather. And his early search for some kind of fusion of Christian theology and Marxist philosophy, including the influence on his music of a radical movement that grew up in South America as a response to the widespread poverty and the ill-treatment of ordinary people.

He also remembers his friendship with Mstislav Rostropovich which led to the commissioning of his Cello Concerto, written at the time of the Dunblane shooting. And he describes the creation of his next great musical success: Veni, Veni Emmanuel – the percussion concerto he wrote for his friend Evelyn Glennie

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0006t8w)
Mise-en-scène

The Meaning of Sam

Michael Goldfarb remembers the political and social mise-en-scène films from the 1960s and 1970s, including work by Sam Peckinpah, Sidney Lumet and Derek Jarman. "Mise-en-scène" means the arrangement of the scenery, props, on the set of a film or, more broadly, the social setting or surroundings of an event.

Sam Peckinpah films nowadays are almost always discussed in terms of their artistically depicted violence, where they fit in the Western genre, and the director's self-destructive alcoholism. But they are much, much more than that.

They are profound meditations on history. In this essay, Michael talks about his masterpieces, Ride the High Country, The Wild Bunch and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Aside from their cinematic virtues, these are films about men who outlive their historical times and how they respond to that displacement.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (m0006t8y)
Unusual Instrumentation

Nick Luscombe presents music made by unconventional line-ups. Oud and guitar meet percussion and electronics in a unique quartet of Oren Ambarchi, Mark Fell, Will Guthrie and Sam Shalabi. A Buddhist choir and Christian Meaas Svendsen’s solo bass investigate the part of Zen philosophy which states that nothing exists as a separate self: everything is inseparable from everything else and always in flux. And there’s early 80s prog from the Japanese trio Wha-ha-ha who combine jazzy rhythms, laid-back dub synths and percussive jiggery-pokery.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006sjc)
James MacMillan (b 1959)

A zoo, a lament and a protest

Sir James MacMillan is reflecting on his prolific life in composition as he celebrates his 60th birthday this week.

By 1999 James had become the most successful Scottish composer ever and the most often performed. But he remembers that not everything was straightforward. He gave a lecture at the Edinburgh Festival under the title Scotland’s Shame, claiming that Scotland was a country riven with anti-Catholic bigotry. The controversy that followed rumbled on for years and still leaves him confused.

His criticism of Scotland found its way into two of the works in today's programme: A Scotch Bestiary and his Second Piano Concerto, the last movement of which is entitled Shamnation.

Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Series: Schubert's Octet

Schubert was commissioned in 1824 by Count Ferdinand Troyer, a clarinettist and courtier of Archduke Rudolf of Austria-Tuscany to write a large-scale chamber work in the style of Beethoven's popular Septet. Not wanting to imitate Beethoven directly, Schubert added an extra violin, which made unusual instrumentation of String Quartet, Double Bass, French Horn, Bassoon and Clarinet - which Troyer played at the first performance.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0006sjz)
Mise-en-scène

The Summation

Michael Goldfarb remembers the political and social mise-en-scène films from the 1960s and 1970s, including work by Sam Peckinpah, Sidney Lumet and Derek Jarman. "Mise-en-scène" means the arrangement of the scenery, props, on the set of a film or, more broadly, the social setting or surroundings of an event.

The word transgressive is one of the most overused by critics on BBC arts programmes. Jarman was the real deal - a genuinely transgressive genius.

A considerable amount of his aesthetic had been formed in New York at the time Michael was driving a cab. They had long conversations about the great NYC avant-garde filmmakers who he knew and whose work he summarised in his films.

This is an essay not just about Jarman but also the New York avant-garde scene of the 1970s, when the forms of film-making were multitudinous and the lifestyle of film-makers had more in common with the avant-garde of early 20th century bohemian Paris than Hollywood.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (m0006sk2)
We Have Lift-off

Nick Luscombe takes one giant leap into music inspired by space to mark the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to land on the Moon. Featuring celestial drones from the black metal band Wolves in the Throne Room and samples of Sputnik, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth, transformed into new work. Plus the American composer Christopher Biggs’ piece titled A Letter To The Moon, which uses our interdependent relationship with the Moon and its orbit as a compositional tool.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0006tn1)
James MacMillan (b 1959)

A dawn, a community and a ring

Sir James MacMillan is reflecting on his prolific life in composition as he celebrates his 60th birthday this week.

He considers his connection with his listeners and the importance of hearing stories from audiences about their reactions to his music. With this in mind, he’s made a habit of writing music for the communities in which he lives. He also describes the daily habit of composition and the need to sometimes allow the creative process to rest.

James encountered Wagner's Ring Cycle as a child. He was entranced by this music and happily remains under its spell today.

THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0006tn3)
Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Series: Schubert, Janacek, Stravinsky

The Skampa Quartet and Simon Crawford-Philips with Philip Moore return today to showcase a selection of 20th century masterpieces of chamber music, with a healthy amount of turbulence generated from 19th century Vienna thrown in for good measure!

Written in the final months of Schubert's life, the Allegro, D. 947 - which was lost until 1840 - is now thought to be a part of a larger unfinished sonata. When it was finally published, it was given the subtitle 'Lebensstürme' - The Storms of Life, which certainly feels appropriate given the nature of this turbulent work.

Leos Janacek's Second Quartet was inspired by his relationship - both real and imagined - with Kamila Stosslova a woman 40 years younger than himself who he became infatuated with in the last decade of his life.

We finish today's programme with Philip Moore's own arrangement of three movements from Stravinsky's Firebird, which is very much in keeping with Stravinsky's own arrangements of his other Diaghilev Ballets, Petrushka and the Rite of Spring. Enjoy!

Berlin's best

Georgia Mann introduces the final concert in a short series of highlights from Europe's 2018/19 season.

Kirill Petrenko, the Berlin Philharmonic's Chief Conductor Designate, doesn't officially take the orchestra's reins until this summer. But already this musical partnership, with its combination of technical brilliance and edge-of-the-seat spontaneity, is the most talked-about in Europe, routinely receiving five-star reviews, critical superlatives and standing ovations. In this concert recorded in March at the Berlin Philharmonie, Petrenko and the orchestra are joined by another musician noted for daring spontaneity, Patricia Kopatchinskaja. Schoenberg's Violin Concerto, written in 1936 during the early years of his US exile from Germany, has the Viennese tradition, and especially Brahms, at its core. The other work is by Tchaikovsky, his Fifth Symphony, a composer particularly close to Petrenko's heart.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0006tnh)
Mise-en-scène

The Ghost of the Time

Michael Goldfarb remembers the political and social mise-en-scène films from the 1960s and 1970s, including work by Sam Peckinpah, Sidney Lumet and Derek Jarman. "Mise-en-scène" means the arrangement of the scenery, props, on the set of a film or, more broadly, the social setting or surroundings of an event.

What films give the best idea of what it was like to be an American starting out in adult life as the 1960s bled into the 1970s? No mainstream films ever really got to grips with the Vietnam/Woodstock zeitgeist. Not Apocalypse Now, or The Deer Hunter, or The Big Chill. They were big budget, big studio imaginings.

But the zeitgeist called for films made well outside the studio system. Withnail, Performance, Tracks, Cutter's Way. These four films - two American-based, two English-based - made outside the studio system - or mutilated by it - get at the anarchic heart of the era.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0006tnk)
Visible Cloaks' Late Junction mixtape

Nick Luscombe hosts with a mixtape from the Portland-based electronic duo Visible Cloaks. Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlisle a.k.a. Visible Cloaks often use bell tones and ambient synth pads in their music, evoking a strange hinterland between traditional and electronic Japanese music with an exploratory production style. Fact magazine described their sound as a ‘soundtrack to a virtual reality Zen garden’. They take on the challenge of curating a Late Junction mixtape, handcrafting 30 minutes of music that has influenced and inspired their work.

Also in the programme, music from the Lithuanian composer Aiste Noreikaite’s helmet, which reads your thoughts to create an unexpected soundscape, Icelandic jazz from the Mikael Mani Trio and modern British acoustic music from Cunning Folk.

A tryst, a grief and a dream

The establishment of the Cumnock Tryst is James's way of bringing an inclusive music festival to his community in Ayrshire.

He also describes the composition of his Violin Concerto, which was inspired by a dream he had following the death of his mother. And he talks about the death of his granddaughter and the impact that this has had on his life and music.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0006v4j)
Norfolk and Norwich Chamber Series: Schubert and Dvorak

In today's programme, Simon Crawford-Philips and Philip Moore conclude what is now regarded as an unfinished sonata with Schubert's last work for a medium he really helped establish - the piano duet. Written in June 1828, only five months before his death, there is none of the angst, anger and sorrow that were present in his solo compositions for the piano of the same year. Instead, Schubert models the Rondo on the lyrical finale of Beethoven's 27th piano sonata, bringing his love of melody to the fore.

Dvorak's G major String Quartet was composed in 1895 - the year he completed his tenure as the first director of the New York Conservatory of Music. During that time, Dvorak had become increasingly homesick and tired of America, so much so that he had barely written a note that year. On his return in April, he took an extended holiday before returning to Prague. It clearly did him some good as he wrote both the G major Quartet and his final A flat major Quartet before the end of the year. Following his excursions in America, this music expresses his contentment to be back in his homeland.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (m0006v4v)
The Moon Verb

This week, Ian McMillan and the guests shoot for the moon.

Ian is joined by Ocean Vuong, winner of the 2017 TS Eliot prize for 'Night Sky with Exit Wounds', who has just published his first novel 'On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous' (Cape). Ocean celebrates his favourite recent moon writing by Mojave American poet Natalie Diaz.

As it's our last programme of The Verb season before we take our summer break, we've brought together our Verb regulars from the past year - poets Ira Lightman and Kate Fox and linguist Rob Drummond. Together they be considering how man walking on the moon 50 years ago has changed our language and our relationship with the moon, and there will be brand new poetry from both Kate and Ira.

And we've let Ian McMillan out of the studio to meet Laurie Anderson and find out what the moon means to her. In collaboration with Hsin-Chien Huang, Anderson has produced the VR experience 'To The Moon'. To The Moon is at the Royal Exchange Theatre as part of the 2019 Manchester International Festival.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m0006v4x)
Mise-en-scène

The Women in the Cutting Room... and Elsewhere

Michael Goldfarb remembers the political and social mise-en-scène films from the 1960s and 1970s, including work by Sam Peckinpah, Sidney Lumet and Derek Jarman. "Mise-en-scène" means the arrangement of the scenery, props, on the set of a film or, more broadly, the social setting or surroundings of an event.

There were women making films in this decade, but very, very few. And they had to stay in their lanes.

The biggest impact women had on the 70s mise-en-scène was in the cutting room: Thelma Schoonmaker, who cut the Scorsese films, and Dede Allen, who was house editor for Sidney Lumet, Arthur Penn and Warren Beatty.

They brought shape and pace and a second set of directorial eyes to the films the three men made in that decade which is still referred to as Hollywood's Last Golden Age.


FRI 23:00 Music Planet (m0006v4z)
Las Maravillas de Mali with Lopa Kothari

In this week's Road Trip, Betto Arcos explores some of the new music to have come out of Cuba in recent years from artists who are combining traditional and contemporary styles. Plus the latest new releases, and a track from classic artist Daniel Owino Misiani, pioneer of the East African benga genre in the 1960s.
