SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0007y39)
James Ellroy

James Ellroy has been dubbed the ‘demon dog of American crime fiction’, a label he relishes. His crime novels, fifteen to date, are international best-sellers; the world they depict is Los Angeles at its wildest and darkest, cops and criminals as violent as each other. Ellroy’s own life has been dominated by crime; his mother was murdered when he was ten, and Ellroy himself got involved in petty theft and, as a young man, spent time in jail.

In Private Passions, James Ellroy reflects on a turbulent life, and how he honed his story-telling skills in a cell with five other criminals. He reveals how much he owes to classical music – and particularly to Beethoven. He has a bust of Beethoven on his desk as he writes, and speaks to him every day. Sometimes Beethoven answers back. James talks too about his other heroes: Mahler, Shostakovich, Bruckner and Wagner, and his admiration for their monumental works. The choices have a strong romantic streak, perhaps surprising in a writer whose world is so violent and dark. But in conversation with Michael Berkeley, James Ellroy reveals himself as never before.

As we reach the 19th century in our Monday lunchtime survey of music spanning over 800 years, soprano Louis Alder and pianist Gary Matthewman present a recital of songs from across Europe, including Lieder by Schubert, and by both Mendelssohn and his sister Fanny (published under her married name of Hensel), whose final song, ‘Bergeslust’ – completed just a day before her death at the age of only 41 – tempers joy with a poignant ending.

The many facets of love are exposed in Felix Mendelssohn’s ‘Der Mond’ and ‘Neue Liebe’, as well as in Chopin’s ‘Sliczny chłopiec’ (Handsome Lad) and songs by Liszt and Rossini.

In this programme, Roderick Williams journeys into the world of Schubert’s last song collection, Schwanengesang. He explores the challenges surrounding the performance of this music, including the language, discusses why he chose to study Schubert’s final song cycle first on his journey, and also relates some of the pros and cons of presenting this music interspersed with poetry.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0007xxh)
Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474)

The medieval mindset

Donald Macleod explores the rich and profoundly moving music Dufay planned for observances at the end of his life.

The beauty, originality and technical mastery of Guillaume Dufay’s music illustrate why the Florentine ruler Piero de’Medici gave him the epithet “the greatest ornament of our age”. Undoubtedly he is one of the 15th century’s most distinctive voices. He was in his late 70s by the time he died in 1474; a long life by medieval standards. His outstanding talent transported him from an uncertain start in life as the illegitimate son of a servant and an unknown man, to being a musician who was feted at court, and respected by the church and the papacy alike. As his fame spread across Europe, he commanded the admiration of his fellow composers, influencing not only his direct contemporaries but also the generation of composers who succeeded him, among them Johannes Ockeghem.

Donald Macleod is joined by William Lyons, a historical music researcher and the founder, director of the ensemble The Dufay Collective. Pulling together what’s known about Dufay, across the series of five programmes, they build a picture of the man behind this illustrious reputation, examine the key relationships he fostered, and consider how his music flourished as he navigated the turbulent political currents of the age.

Dufay set out his funeral obsequies in detail and he regarded his transition to the after-life to be of paramount importance; naturally all such arrangements required some exceptional music.

MON 22:00 Free Thinking (m0004ds4)

But three thinkers with an international perspective discuss how the expression and interpretation of emotions differs around the world. China specialist and Radio 3 presenter Rana Mitter hosts this Free Thinking Festival discussion.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0000r1s)
Forests

The Wood Beyond the World

Lose yourself in a forest of fair maidens and knights with suspiciously shiny armour. This is a forest where the romantic couplings may be fantastical but the backdrop is meticulously drawn. Each leaf, each clump of moss is taken directly from nature. This is the mediaeval forest as reimagined by late Victorian aesthetes aghast at the grit and grime of industrialisation.

Eleanor Rosamund Baraclough is joined by Ingrid Hanson from Manchester University for a walk through this Pre-Raphaelite forest. Their spirit guide is William Morris, the writer and designer who helped create the forest in his works of fantasy fiction such as The Wood Beyond the World, beating a path to be followed by Tolkien, C.S. Lewis and J.K. Rowling.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0007y8j)
Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474)

A medieval cleric

Donald Macleod explores Dufay’s life as a chorister at one of the most prestigious institutions of the period, Cambrai cathedral, where he would have learnt the foundations of his craft.

The beauty, originality and technical mastery of Guillaume Dufay’s music illustrate why the Florentine ruler Piero de’Medici gave him the epithet “the greatest ornament of our age”. Undoubtedly he is one of the 15th century’s most distinctive voices. He was in his late 70s by the time he died in 1474; a long life by medieval standards. His outstanding talent transported him from an uncertain start in life as the illegitimate son of a servant and an unknown man, to being a musician who was feted at court, and respected by the church and the papacy alike. As his fame spread across Europe, he commanded the admiration of his fellow composers, influencing not only his direct contemporaries but also the generation of composers who succeeded him, among them Johannes Ockeghem.

Donald Macleod is joined by William Lyons, a historical music researcher and artistic director of the ensemble The Dufay Collective. Pulling together what’s known about Dufay, across the series of five programmes, they build a picture of the man behind this illustrious figure, examine the key relationships he fostered, and consider how his music flourished as he navigated the turbulent political currents of the age.

Dufay’s training was rigorous, with studies in Latin, grammar and the catechism, as well as learning music, predominantly plainsong for services, so quite how and where he perfected his skill in writing in a polyphonic multi-voiced style is still something of a mystery.

Schwetzingen Festival 2019

Beethoven, Bach and Poulenc from Schwetzingen

Schwetzingen Festival 2019

Presented by Sarah Walker

Is there a day in the year when there isn't a concert going on somewhere in Schwetzingen? This medium sized town in western Germany plays host to every conceivable form of music making, and this week's Lunchtime Concerts offer a selection from this year's Spring Chamber Music Festival.

The festival attracts the finest musicians and this week we'll hear three of the top International string quartets, the Mandelring Quartet, the Casals Quartet and the Chiaroscuro Quartet, as well as a Trio made up of violinist Daniel Sepec, viola player Tabea Zimmermann and cellist Jean-Guihen Queryas. And he also turns up in part of a solo recital with a Bach Cello Suite.

We also feature soprano Christiane Karg singling some delicious French chanson by Poulenc and Claude Arrieu, all settings of the poet Louise Lévêque de Vilmorin. Poulenc said that he found in Louise's poetry "a sort of sensitive impertinence, libertinage, and an appetite".

Louise Lévêque de Vilmorin, who died in 1969 had a colourful life, married in the 1920's to an American who owned Las Vegas, in the 30's to a Hungarian playboy before becoming mistress to Duff Cooper, the British ambassador to France after the second world war. This is not to say she was defined by the men she partnered, but to show the kinds of circles she moved in, her gifts of observation and a typically French style that drew Poulenc to her poetry.

Claude Arrieu was a French composer of all sorts of music from Radio to Opera, but she was particularly attracted to Song, and settings of her contemporaries and is an ideal companion in these songs to Poulenc. She died in 1990.

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Ryan Wigglesworth conductor

Glyndebourne’s new production of The Magic Flute comes to the Proms in a special semi-staging.

Mozart’s final opera is a beguiling mix of enchantment and Enlightenment politics. A score overflowing with melody and invention and a fairy-tale cast of characters together create one of the composer’s best-loved comedies.

Ryan Wigglesworth conducts an exciting young cast including Sofia Fomina, Björn Bürger and David Portillo.

Synopsis:

Act I
Alone in a foreign land, Prince Tamino is attacked by a giant serpent. He faints but, when he comes to, realises that he has been rescued – someone else has killed the monster. Papageno, the Queen of the Night’s bird-catcher, is quick to claim the credit, but is soon corrected by the queen’s three ladies. They give Tamino a portrait of Pamina, the queen’s daughter, who has been abducted by the tyrant Sarastro. Tamino falls instantly in love. The queen herself appears, and promises the Prince her daughter’s hand if he can rescue her. To help him on his quest, the ladies give him a magic flute and three magical spirits to guide him. He sets off, joined by an unwilling Papageno.

Imprisoned in Sarastro’s temple underground, Pamina is at the mercy of the slave Monostatos. But his lecherous plans are interrupted by Papageno, who tells Pamina of Tamino’s love and his quest to rescue her. Arriving at the temple, Tamino is greeted by a priest, who tells him that he has been deceived by the Queen of the Night; all is not as she described. Papageno and Pamina have escaped, but are pursued by Monostatos. Papageno uses his magic bells to enchant their pursuers, but just as they are once again free, they hear Sarastro and his followers approaching. Pamina confesses all and is forgiven, but Sarastro still refuses to release her. Tamino enters, captured by a triumphant Monostatos. He and Pamina meet briefly for the first time before they are both led separately away to prepare for their initiation into Sarastro’s order. Monostatos is punished.

Act II
Sarastro persuades the brotherhood to accept Tamino as a member if he passes the order’s tests of initiation. Tamino and Papageno face the first trial: silence. Papageno fails almost immediately, but Tamino holds firm. The Queen of the Night still seeks revenge, and orders Pamina to kill Sarastro. Monostatos overhears and threatens to expose the plot unless Pamina surrenders to his desires. But Sarastro discovers his scheme, banishes Monostatos and forgives Pamina. Papageno and Tamino are still sworn to silence. Papageno once again fails by talking to an old woman. Tamino plays his magic flute, which summons Pamina to him. She speaks but he cannot reply, forcing her to believe that he no longer loves her. Sarastro orders Pamina and Tamino to bid each other a final farewell – they must now prepare for their trials. Papageno expresses his wish for a wife of his own, and is rewarded by the return of the old lady. But the instant he reluctantly agrees to marry her she is transformed into his perfect Papagena, only to be immediately whisked away by the brotherhood: he is not yet worthy of her.

Convinced Tamino no longer loves her, Pamina prepares to kill herself, but is prevented by the Three Boys, who reassure her of his devotion. Two men in armour help Tamino prepare for his final trials. Free now to speak, he is reunited with Pamina who resolves to undergo the trials of fire and water alongside him. Devastated by the loss of Papagena, Papageno prepares to hang himself. But once again the Three Boys intervene, telling him to use the magic bells to summon her back. The lovers are joyfully reunited.

The Queen of the Night, Monostatos and their allies make one final attempt to overthrow Sarastro but fail. ‘The rays of the sun expel the night and annihilate the power of the hypocrite’ proclaims Sarastro. He welcomes Tamino and Pamina into the brotherhood, as members of the order celebrate a new era of wisdom.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0007y7p)
Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474)

The land of the lemon trees

Donald Macleod tells how Guillaume Dufay enchants a noble Italian family and avoids falling foul of warring factions, with music including one of his most famous songs, Vergene Bella.

The beauty, originality and technical mastery of Guillaume Dufay’s music illustrate why the Florentine ruler Piero de’Medici gave him the epithet “the greatest ornament of our age”. Undoubtedly he is one of the 15th century’s most distinctive voices. He was in his late 70s by the time he died in 1474; a long life by medieval standards. His outstanding talent transported him from an uncertain start in life as the illegitimate son of a servant and an unknown man, to being a musician who was feted at court, and respected by the church and the papacy alike. As his fame spread across Europe, he commanded the admiration of his fellow composers, influencing not only his direct contemporaries but also the generation of composers who succeeded him, among them Johannes Ockeghem.

Donald Macleod is joined by William Lyons, a historical music researcher and artistic director of the ensemble The Dufay Collective. Pulling together what’s known about Dufay, across the series of five programmes, they build a picture of the man behind this illustrious figure, assess the key relationships he fostered, and consider how his music flourished as he navigated the turbulent political currents of the age.

Thanks, presumably, to his reputation preceding his arrival, it isn't too long before Dufay's name is linked with one of the most important noble families in Northern Italy. Then, when another of his employers, no less a personage than the Pope is forcibly expelled from Bologna, the enterprising Dufay is able to use his connections to return to the relative calm of Rome.

WED 22:15 Free Thinking (m0003svr)
Being Diplomatic

How much emotion should you show if you are a diplomat, a news reporter or a conciliation expert? Anne McElvoy chairs a Free Thinking Festival debate at Sage Gateshead with Gabriel Gatehouse, Gabrielle Rifkind and William J Burns.

In the world of international affairs, the overriding philosophy for global professionals has been one of restraint and rationality – whether you are negotiating, mediating or observing. So how is this traditional idea of “being diplomatic” and even-handed faring in a more emotional and expressive age?

Psychotherapist Gabrielle Rifkind works in conflict resolution in the Middle East. She directs The Oxford Process, a conflict prevention initiative specialising in managing radical disagreement. Her books include The Psychology of Political Extremism: What would Sigmund Freud have thought about Islamic State and The Fog of Peace: How to Prevent War.

William J Burns’ book The Back Channel - American Diplomacy in a Disordered World charts his career as an American diplomat for over 3 decades. involved in negotiations with President Putin and secret nuclear talks with Iran. He is now President of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

Gabriel Gatehouse is a BBC reporter whose work includes the Panorama programme Marine Le Pen: Who's Funding France's Far Right? (2017) and Our World A Tale of Two Swedens. His reporting has included investigations in East Africa, the Ukraine and Russia, Libya and Iraq and the BBC Radio 4 series The Puppet Master

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0007yl1)
Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474)

Marking the Event

Donald Macleod recounts how the Dufay finds work at the Court of Savoy, an important centre of culture, and writes some exceptional music for the coronation of Pope Eugenius IV.

The beauty, originality and technical mastery of Guillaume Dufay’s music illustrate why the Florentine ruler Piero de’Medici gave him the epithet “the greatest ornament of our age”. Undoubtedly he is one of the 15th century’s most distinctive voices. He was in his late 70s by the time he died in 1474; a long life by medieval standards. His outstanding talent transported him from an uncertain start in life as the illegitimate son of a servant and an unknown man, to being a musician who was feted at court, and respected by the church and the papacy alike. As his fame spread across Europe, he commanded the admiration of his fellow composers, influencing not only his direct contemporaries but also the generation of composers who succeeded him, among them Johannes Ockeghem.

Donald Macleod is joined by William Lyons, an historical music researcher and the artistic director of the ensemble The Dufay Collective. Pulling together what’s known about Dufay, across the series of five programmes, they build a picture of the man behind this illustrious figure, assess the key relationships he fostered, and consider how his music flourished as he navigated the turbulent political currents of the age.

From the 1430s Dufay's standing and versatility was such that he was able to supply music to one of the great European courts and turn his hand to writing music for the Pope of equal brilliance, seemingly at the drop of a hat.

Schwetzingen Festival 2019

Mozart and Claude Arrieu from Schwetzingen.

Schwetzingen Festival 2019. Presented by Sarah Walker.

The title 'Divertimento' suggests a light hearted small scale musical 'entertainment', but this does not do justice to the one in today's programme, which contains some of Mozart's finest chamber music, and Daniel Sepec, Tabea Zimmerman and Jean-Guihen Quaeryas are just the calibre of musicians to do this work justice.

And Christiane Karg is back with more settings of the poet Louise Lévêque de Vilmorin, this time the music is by Claude Arrieu.

Ulster Orchestra
Rafael Payare (conductor)

Belfast's Ulster Orchestra and its dynamic music director Rafael Payare present the Proms premiere of Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto, performed here by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Mariam Batsashvili.
Begun when the then Clara Wieck was just 13 years old, it’s a work whose mellow mood and lyrical melodies conceal no little technical intricacy and formal innovation.
Sunny good humour also runs through both Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 – famously described as a musical ‘comedy of manners’ – and Shostakovich’s First Symphony, lively with satirical wit and mischief.

The Music Makers is the musical culmination of a career, drawing together quotations from many of the composer’s best-loved pieces, including the ‘Enigma’ Variations and Sea Pictures, and weaving them into a musical manifesto for the power of art.

The concert also includes Vaughan Williams’s luminous Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis for double string orchestra and Hugh Wood’s lyrical setting of scenes from Milton’s pastoral masque Comus.


THU 21:30 Free Thinking (m000488q)
Should Doctors Cry?

Anne McElvoy debates at the Free Thinking Festival with intensive care doctor Aoife Abbey, GP & Prof Louise Robinson, Naeem Soomro expert in using robotic surgery and Michael Brown medical historian. Does emotion have any place in relationships with patients in a more open age? Medical professionals are trained to adopt “clinical distance” when dealing with patients. Tradition says that getting emotional weakens their judgement of medical evidence and can cause safeguarding issues. But how can those in caring roles prevent disinterest seeming like un-interest?

Aoife Abbey is a doctor working in Intensive Care whose book Seven Signs of Life is an account of her experiences told through the emotions she encounters on a daily basis. Aoife previously wrote a blog as The Secret Doctor for the British Medical Association and works on a national training programme for doctors in intensive care medicine. She is a council member of the Intensive Care Society (UK).

Michael Brown is a cultural historian at the University of Roehampton who is currently leading a project for the Wellcome Trust entitled Surgery & Emotion exploring this relationship from 1800 to the present. He is the author of Performing Medicine: Medical Culture and Identity in Provincial England, c. 1760-1850

Louise Robinson is Director of Newcastle University’s Institute for Ageing, Professor of Primary Care and Ageing and a GP. She leads one of only three Alzheimer Society national Centres of Excellence on Dementia Care and is a member of the national dementia care guidelines development group.

Dr Naeem Soomro is Leading Consultant Urologist at Freeman Hospital, Newcastle. He has pioneered minimally invasive and robotic surgery in the North East and has developed the biggest multi-speciality robotic surgery program in the UK.

Jazz, showbiz swagger and spirituality come together as never before in Duke Ellington’s spectacular Sacred Concerts.

Described by Ellington himself as ‘the most important thing I have ever done’, these sacred revues, blending big-band jazz, gospel and Broadway-style melodies, bring all the legendary musician’s originality and energy to Christian subjects, and generated three critically acclaimed, boundary-crossing albums.

Drawing on these, the Proms premieres a brand-new Sacred Concert – an exhilarating evening of dance, song and spectacle.

Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474)

A maker of music

Donald Macleod considers why Dufay was seen as a practictioner of music, and a glimpse across the centuries into his character, through the only letter of his that survives.

The beauty, originality and technical mastery of Guillaume Dufay’s music illustrate why the Florentine ruler Piero de’Medici gave him the epithet “the greatest ornament of our age”. Undoubtedly he is one of the 15th century’s most distinctive voices. He was in his late 70s by the time he died in 1474; a long life by medieval standards. His outstanding talent transported him from an uncertain start in life as the illegitimate son of a servant and an unknown man, to being a musician who was feted at court, and respected by the church and the papacy alike.

Pulling together what’s known about Dufay, across the series of five programmes, they build a picture of the man behind this illustrious figure, assess the key relationships he fostered, and consider how his music flourished as he navigated the turbulent political currents of the age.

In the concluding part of this week's series Donald and William look at how Dufay's view of his role changed over the years and how the world in which he lived would have understood it.
