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.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m00075dr)
Cellist Laura van der Heijden finds bittersweet intensity in music

Since winning BBC Young Musician in 2012, cellist Laura van der Heijen has successfully juggled professional performing with her academic studies. She has just graduated from St John’s College, Cambridge and in today’s edition of Inside Music she talks about a highlight of her Cambridge years - putting on a performance of Bach’s St Matthew Passion.

Laura also finds music by Robert Schumann and Richard Strauss that has in the past assuaged her teenage angst, and a concerto by Telemann that’s been pepped up with the addition of the Hungarian cimbalom.

Raw vocal expression is another necessity for Laura, as she chooses recordings by singers Fritz Wunderlich, Ella Fitzgerald and Allan Clayton.

At two o’clock Laura’s Must Listen piece mixes cello, violin and orchestra and a sense of timelessness.

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

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m00074xs)
Peter Piot

At the age of 27, Peter Piot’s life was changed by the arrival of a special package from Africa. He was working as a researcher in a microbiology lab in Antwerp, Belgium; and, in September 1976, the lab was alerted that a package was on its way from Zaire: samples of blood from an epidemic that was stirring along the river Congo. Several Belgian nuns had already died of a strange new disease. The disease – which Peter Piot and his team identified, and named – was Ebola, and he went on to play a leading role in helping to contain the epidemic. He then led research into the worldwide epidemic which followed, the new disease of AIDS, becoming President of the International Aids society. Peter Piot has held prominent positions in the United Nations and in the World Health Organisation and has been ennobled both in Belgium and in Britain, where in 2016 he was made an honorary Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George.

It’s a career which has taken him all over the world, and though Peter Piot is now the director of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London, he still travels a great deal. His musical choices reflect that, with music from Africa, including a piece performed for him on his 60th birthday by the 'king of Rumba Rock', Papa Wemba. He includes, too, a rarely heard viol piece by the Flemish composer Leonora Duarte, which he discovered when he was studying in Antwerp.

With the horrifying return of Ebola, Peter Piot reflects on a career which has been spent very close to the dead and dying. And he chooses music which helps him make sense of the tragedies he has witnessed first-hand: Kathleen Ferrier singing Gluck’s heart-breaking aria “Che Faro”.

SUN 18:15 New Generation Artists (m00074xx)
Debussy and Jolivet

New Generation Artists: the dazzling trumpeter Simon Höfele is joined by percussionist Simone Rubino in André Jolivet's daunting seven-movement masterpiece for trumpet and percussion. Their performance formed part of an incredible concert the pair gave recently during the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. As the audience entered the Octagon Chapel in Norwich they were dumbfounded at the sight of an array of percussion instruments including cow bells, Chinese blocks, Woodblocks, Hi Hat, tambourine, whistle, bass drum, tam tam and snare drum. They departed smiling at the breathtaking virtuosity and refinement with which it was deployed.
Before that, two recent New Generation Artists play music by Debussy.

SUN 19:00 The Listening Service (m00074xz)
Olivier Messiaen and the Interstellar Call!

In a live edition of The Listening Service, Tom Service hears and responds to composer Olivier Messiaen’s ‘Interstellar Call’, sent out in his epic "From the canyons to the stars..." The music is inspired by the wild beauty of Arizona, filled with birdsong and the sounds of nature, but also with a cosmic sense of awe - where does Messiaen's visionary work fit in the culture of the early 70s and in the present day?


SUN 19:30 BBC Proms (m00074y1)
2019

Prom 13: 'From the Canyons to the Stars…'

Live at BBC Proms: the BBC Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Sakari Oramo, with Nicolas Hodges (piano) and Martin Owen (horn), in Messiaen's Des canyons aux étoiles...

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London
Presented by Penny Gore

Olivier Messiaen: Des canyons aux étoiles …

Martin Owen (horn)
David Hockings (percussion)
Alex Neal (percussion)
Nicolas Hodges (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

The ‘wild and colourful beauty’ of Utah and Arizona was the inspiration for one of the 20th century’s most singular and extraordinary works, a musical act of ‘praise and contemplation’ painted in the brightest and most vivid of sounds.

Olivier Messiaen’s mighty Des canyons aux étoiles … (‘From the Canyons to the Stars …’) is a sonic meditation in which birdsong mingles with desert winds, and the rustling of sand.

Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC SO, with pianist Nicolas Hodges and horn player Martin Owen taking the demanding solo parts.


SUN 21:30 Early Music Late (m00074y3)
Passionate cantatas

I Barocchisti and the Swiss Radio Choir perform four of JS Bach's choral cantatas, including surely one of his greatest, Jesu, der du meine Seele, BWV 78 - Jesus, you who have my soul, based on Johann Rist's popular hymn. Director lutenist Luca Pianca opens the concert with Luther’s grand Advent hymn, Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland (Come now, saviour of the heathen) BWV 62 with its ringing soprano lines, and the introspective Wer weiß, wie nahe mir mein Ende, BWV 27 (Who knows how near I am to my death). There's also Ach wie flüchtig, ach wie nichtig, BWV 26 (Ah, how fleeting, how empty) - all performed with soloists Bernhard Bechtold (tenor) and Florian Boesch (bass) at the Lugano festival earlier this year.


SUN 23:00 Percussion Century (m00027s6)
Hypnotic repetition

Close your eyes, and enjoy an hour of percussive meditation.

If there is one area of music that percussion was absolutely made for, its minimalism. In this episode Colin Currie strips percussion right back to the bare essentials as he chooses music that revels in its own sounds, patterns, loops and melodies.

The powerful ability of percussion instruments to weave together multiple layers of sound leads to a playlist with works by John Adams, Philip Glass, Arvo Pärt, Lou Harrison and the ‘godfather’ of minimalist music for percussion, Steve Reich, who has described Colin as “one of the greatest musicians in the world today”.

Steve Reich’s style was partly shaped by music he heard on trips around the world, and time studying with a Ghanaian drumming master, and Colin also includes some mesmerising traditional sounds with roots in Ghana and Zimbabwe.

Colin himself is one of the world’s leading interpreters of the music of Steve Reich so he starts and ends with two of Reich’s most brilliant and celebrated pieces: Music for 18 Musicians and Drumming.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000754g)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

London

Today, Donald Macleod focuses on Elgar’s connection with London - the place he travelled to in his twenties for the occasional violin lesson, the place he married his wife Alice and where his only child Carice was born, and the place they returned to many years later to live in their grandest residence 'Severn House', the first house they actually owned and the home where Alice later died.

Worcester-born, with his roots in the beautiful English countryside around Hereford and the Malverns yet drawn to the bright lights of London, English composer Edward Elgar moved house a lot. He lived in over 25 residences in his lifetime, stayed with friends, travelled often for work and pleasure in the UK, Europe and further afield, and had a number of second homes he rented as retreats. This week we’re focusing on the locations that were important to Elgar, and the places that inspired his music.

Live at BBC Proms: Mariana Flores, Cappella Mediterranea and Leonardo García Alarcón celebrate the 400th anniversary of pioneering Venetian composer Barbara Strozzi. A selection of love songs by Strozzi and her contemporaries includes the poignant ‘Lagrime mie’ and ‘Che si può fare’.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny from Cadogan Hall.

Antonia Bembo: Ercole amante – 'Mingannasti in verità'
Barbara Strozzi: Che si può fare
Antonia Bembo: Ercole amante – 'Volgete altrove il guardo'

Mariana Flores (soprano)
Cappella Mediterranea
Leonardo García Alarcón (harpsichord/organ/director)

Few composers paint human emotion as vividly or with greater insight, wit and poignancy than Barbara Strozzi whose songs and madrigals stand alongside Monteverdi’s as some of the greatest of the age.

Argentine soprano Mariana Flores and period-instrument ensemble Cappella Mediterranea celebrate Strozzi’s anniversary with a selection of love songs by the composer and her contemporaries, including the arresting ‘Lagrime mie’ and the touching ‘Che si puo fare’.

MON 22:15 Sunday Feature (b0948p5w)
The Battle for Henry David Thoreau

Henry David Thoreau, whose 200th birthday is currently being celebrated, is one of America's most quoted writers. His famous self-sufficient 'exile' to the woods by Walden Pond in Massachusetts spawned the classic book 'Walden', which is taught in schools and read diligently by green-leaning people around the world.

The received wisdom gives him credit as the founding father of the environmental movement in America. Thoreau is the 'voice of the American wilderness', the 'national conscience urging people to live in harmony with nature'. His appeal to the baby boomer generation who loved his nonconformity, his exhortation to 'simplify!, simplify!' and his thoughts on civil disobedience, was immense. We talk to Don Henley, guitarist of The Eagles who has been an important patron, saving Thoreau's landscape around Walden Woods. Marling attends the bicentennial events and talks to biographers and natural scientists, political thinkers and literary historians who all claim interest in Thoreau.

On the other hand, libertarians, attracted to Thoreau's aphorism "That government is best, which governs least," take issue with the way current environmentalists seize on his work and reputation. And political activists believe his real legacy lies in his evocation of passive resistance in the influential essay Civil Disobedience. The battle for Thoreau's legacy extends to those who focus on his character, denigrating him as a hypocrite and a joyless prig, a moralist given to disdainfully finger wagging his countrymen. We weigh the arguments but also ask whether, even if the legitimacy of his legacy is in doubt, even if he was 'a jerk', the world needs Thoreau now ....more than ever..... in a new age of environmental hostility? Is the idea of him more important now than the reality?

Woodstock, the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, the ongoing Vietnam War, The Beatles’ final album (Abbey Road) – 1969 was a pivotal year.

This Prom explores the film and popular music of 1969 to revive the soundtrack of a special summer.

The BBC Concert Orchestra under Stephen Bell presents a typically wide-angled view, taking in music inspired by the era-defining Woodstock festival, excerpts from the films Battle of Britain, The Italian Job, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Midnight Cowboy, and ‘Here Comes the Sun’ from The Beatles’ final album Abbey Road.

As the USA’s victory in the space race inspired new music to match the emerging digital era, the Moog synthesizer broke into the mainstream with the album Switched-on Bach. A concert evoking the end of the Swinging Sixties, with a cross-generational appeal that offers both a sunburst of nostalgia and iconic revivals.

Yannick Nézet-Séguin, conductor

One of Europe’s greatest orchestras, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, returns to the Proms under Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

In the first of two concerts (see also Prom 17) they pair two contrasting symphonies in a programme that moves from sunshine to bitterness. ‘This symphony is smiling throughout,’ wrote Berlioz of Beethoven’s Second Symphony – a work in which seemingly sunny moods conceal personal tragedy and loss.

Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony was written under the cloud of intense scrutiny and artistic repression following the public criticism of the composer at the hands of Stalin.

Nobody Knows My Name: Notes on James Baldwin

In this documentary we hear archive of the renowned American writer James Baldwin in conversation with contemporary writers and activists. Exploring the reasons behind the resonance and resurgence of his work and analysis thirty years after his death.

Baldwin was a gay African American writer whose novels including Go Tell it on the Mountain and Giovanni's Room made him a leading thinker on America, sexuality and race from the 1950s onwards.

With new documentaries, films, essays and activists explicitly using Baldwin as a touchstone - what is it about Baldwin's insight and art that has prompted such a resurgence of interest? And how might he help us understand the contemporary moment

Writers including The Good Immigrant's Musa Okwonga, Mitchell S Jackson and the New Yorker's Hilton Als, community organiser Imani Robinson, academic Robert Reid-Pharr and Baldwin biographer and academic Magdalena Zaborowska unpick his work and find moments of personal shared experience.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000767y)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Retreats

Elgar composed best when he was close to nature, away from towns and cities. During his lifetime he often rented retreats or visited friends in idyllic locations to relax and write. In today's programme Donald Macleod introduces us to Elgar's two country cottages 'Birchwood', near Malvern, and 'Brinkwells', in the Sussex countryside, and one of his closest friend's riverside mansion 'The Hut' on the Thames at Bray, near Maidenhead. Music includes his Sea Pictures, and the first two movements of his Cello Concerto in the classic recording with Jacqueline du Pré.

Worcester-born, with his roots in the beautiful English countryside around Hereford and the Malverns yet drawn to the bright lights of London, English composer Edward Elgar moved house a lot. He lived in over 25 residences in his lifetime, stayed with friends, travelled often for work and pleasure in the UK, Europe and further afield, and had a number of second homes he rented as retreats. This week we’re focusing on the locations that were important to Elgar, and the places that inspired his music.

Richard Strauss:
Der Rosenkavalier – suite

The second concert from Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to the 150th anniversary of the birth of Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood.

A passionate champion of new music, Wood gave the UK premieres of many major works featured this season, including both Sibelius’s turbulent Symphony No. 1 and Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto – played here by Georgian soloist Lisa Batiashvili – whose initial simplicity and directness give way to spiky virtuosity in the finale.

The concert closes in Vienna, with the waltz-filled and lushly orchestrated suite from Richard Strauss’s popular opera Der Rosenkavalier.


WED 22:00 Sunday Feature (b09hrr7n)
Laura Ingalls' America

Children's writer Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie novels have been much loved since they first appeared in the Great Depression for celebrating the pioneer mythology of American identity: immigration, self-determination and family values. Some liberals claim her as a feminist before her time, while the conservative right see her as a symbol of traditional American ideals. Samira Ahmed wonders if she can be both and what the battle over her legacy reveals about modern America.

Heading for Wilder's Rocky Ridge Farm in Mansfield, Missouri, where Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her novels in her 60s, Samira explores the strange mixture of fact and fiction in the stories. In an America battling over Civil War memorials, the stone house has become a landmark of survival and etched into the tapestry of America. Here Samira meets fans and critics in an attempt to understand why Wilder, a survivor of hard winters, drought and two of the greatest financial crashes in US history, has inspired such love in generations of readers. But also to confront the challenges to the idea of her as a great American heroine because of the genocide of Native Americans that her books obliquely describe and whose land her family's pioneer generation built their lives on.

Samira speaks to biographers Pamela Smith Hill, John E Miller and William Anderson, academics Clive Webb and Frances W Kaye, the Director and President of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home and Museum, Jean Cody, and actor Dean Butler from the television series Little House on the Prairie.

Music of dreams and nocturnal restlessness with Verity Sharp.

Iranian composer/producer Siavash Amini explores the meaning of night in his new album, inspired by his own troubled experiences and by French writer Maurice Blanchot’s concept of ‘other night’ - the night of dreaming that delivers not rest but restlessness.

Keeping the synapses firing into the small hours there’s also hyperactive jazz from Philipp Gropper, and a meld of cartoonish metal and tropical rhythms from Chúpame el Dedo.

Plus a look ahead to this weekend’s Sidmouth Folk Festival, featuring an array of homegrown and international artists including Ireland’s Lisa O’Neill and Turkish singer Çiğdem Aslan.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00076m4)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Abroad

Elgar’s well known for his association with English landscapes, but he also travelled abroad often, and was inspired by his visits to many locations whilst holidaying, or conducting. In today's programme Donald Macleod explores Elgar's travels abroad, and we hear music inspired by a wild trip to Paris, his love of the Bavarian Highlands and a villa stay in Italy. We also learn of his mysterious cruise up the Amazon.

Worcester-born, with his roots in the beautiful English countryside around Hereford and the Malverns yet drawn to the bright lights of London, English composer Edward Elgar moved house a lot. He lived in over 25 residences in his lifetime, stayed with friends, travelled often for work and pleasure in the UK, Europe and further afield, and had a number of second homes he rented as retreats.

East Neuk Festival 3/4

Kate Molleson presents the third Lunchtime concert from this year's East Neuk Festival, which is held in venues up and down the beautiful coastline of the Kingdom of Fife. The Pavel Haas Quartet play two contrasting works in The Bowhouse, just outside the picturesque harbour town of St. Monans.
Dmitri Shostakovich dedicated his String Quartet No. 8 to "the victims of fascism and the war" when he wrote it in 1960. It is a powerful work that was written in just three days at a time of deteriorating health for the composer and it reduced Shostakovich to tears upon hearing it played in a private recital. The concert starts with the joyful String Quintet in E-flat, Op. 97, which was composed by Antonín Dvořák during the summer he spent in Spillville, Iowa in 1893. The Pavel Haas Quartet are joined by Krzysztof Chorzelski from the Belcea Quartet in this Viola Quintet.

Sakari Oramo (conductor)

The ‘wild and colourful beauty’ of Utah and Arizona was the inspiration for one of the 20th century’s most singular and extraordinary works, a musical act of ‘praise and contemplation’ painted in the brightest and most vivid of sounds.

Olivier Messiaen’s mighty Des canyons aux étoiles … (‘From the Canyons to the Stars …’) is a sonic meditation in which birdsong mingles with desert winds, and the rustling of sand.

Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC SO, with pianist Nicolas Hodges and horn player Martin Owen taking the demanding solo parts.

Edward Gardner (conductor)

Claudia Mahnke and Stuart Skelton are the soloists in Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde - a powerful, personal statement of loss, orchestrated with infinite variety and skill.

It’s paired with another mould-breaking work Britten’s Piano Concerto. Premiered at the Proms in 1938 with the 24-year-old composer as soloist, the work is as much a celebration of orchestral texture as pianistic bravura, bursting with youthful energy and invention. Norwegian pianist and Proms regular Leif Ove Andsnes is the soloist.


THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b09qcyy0)
Alex La Guma - The Black Dickens

Lindsay Johns argues that the South African novelist Alex La Guma is an overlooked literary colossus who should be restored to his rightful place - at the centre of the literary canon.

Travelling to Cape Town, Lindsay visits some of the places and people that inspired La Guma's writing. And as he does, from the bustle of Athlone township to the dispiriting wasteland of District Six, he finds that La Guma's novels - written in apartheid South Africa in the 1960s and 1970s - still have much to say about the country today.

Lindsay speaks to Alex La Guma's biographer, to his contemporary the great Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong'o, and to novelists and poets who found inspiration in La Guma's writing. Visiting his widow, Blanche, Lindsay hears how the South African security forces tried, and failed, to silence his voice. And in the wasteland of District Six, razed to make way for new homes for white South Africans, he hears about tragic and fascinating undercurrents in the racial politics of contemporary South Africa.

But for all his dazzling literary brilliance, today Alex La Guma is overlooked - often out of print, not taught in schools, no memorial to him even in the city where he was born and set his books - and so Lindsay will try to find out why, and what might be done about it.

Producer: Giles Edwards.

Andrew Logan’s mixtape

Verity Sharp presents a Late Junction mixtape from sculptor, performance artist and jewellery-maker Andrew Logan.

Originally trained as an architect, Logan has been one of Britain’s leading sculptural artists for over five decades. He is best known for his inventive use of found materials, primarily glass and mirrors - he has been described as the ‘Fabergé of the eighties’ and ‘The Wizard of Odd’.

In 1972, Logan began the Alternative Miss World contest, an extravagant artistic event and fancy dress pageant inspired by Crufts. Just like the dog show, contestants are judged on poise, personality and originality rather than beauty, with past participants including Derek Jarman, David Hockney and Grayson Perry.

Logan is the only living artist in Britain with a museum dedicated to him, having opened the Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture in Wales in 1991.

In his mixtape, Andrew shares music from his friends, collaborators and inspirations over his long career, from Divine to Brian Eno and Fenella Fielding.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00076wp)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Worcester

Today Donald Macleod focusses on Worcester, where Elgar was born, and where he lived for the final five years of his life. We hear his last completed work in a recording his daughter played to him just a week before he died, and The Wand of Youth - music based on a play he put on at the age of eleven.

Worcester-born, with his roots in the beautiful English countryside around Hereford and the Malverns yet drawn to the bright lights of London, English composer Edward Elgar moved house a lot. He lived in over 25 residences in his lifetime, stayed with friends, travelled often for work and pleasure in the UK, Europe and further afield, and had a number of second homes he rented as retreats. This week we’re focusing on the locations that were important to Elgar, and the places that inspired his music.

Written when he was just 16, it is filled with youthful verve and brilliance.

With the help of violinist Pekka Kuusisto Tom Service explores the concerto from Vivaldi in the early 18th century to today's composers.

James MacMillan: The Confession of Isobel Gowdie

Alexander Melnikov (piano)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Thomas Dausgaard (conductor)

‘I always wanted a great bravura piece by him,’ wrote Clara Schumann of her husband. Her hope was answered in Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto a work whose broad, symphonic scope explores and tests the relationship between soloist and orchestra.

Russian pianist Alexander Melnikov joins the BBC Scottish SO and its Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard for a programme that also includes the sweeping drama of Strauss’s tone-poem Also sprach Zarathustra, with its memorable opening sunrise (heard on the soundtrack for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey) and the violence and compassion of Sir James MacMillan’s early masterpiece The Confession of Isobel Gowdie, inspired by the execution of a 17th-century ‘witch’ and premiered at the Proms in 1990.

Literary Pursuits

Literary Pursuits - RL Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde

Sarah Dillon discovers the story behind the writing of R.L. Stevenson's horror classic 'Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.' Written at speed in Bournemouth while Stevenson was recuperating from a serious illness, this is the book that finally made his name and fortune. He later said it was inspired by a dream, and his wife, Fanny claims that it was her influence that caused him to burn the first draft and re-write it in three days. But interviews with author and broadcaster Sir Christopher Frayling, biographer Claire Harman, author and journalist Jeremy Hodges and Professor Richard Dury reveal that the myth of the books composition can be challenged. Sarah Dillon discovers there are many other possible influences on the novel, including the death of a friend by alcoholic poisoning; a contemporary investigative journalist report who exposed child prostitution; a real life murderer who Stevenson knew in Edinburgh and a wardrobe with a disturbing history from his childhood bedroom.
