9.30am Building a Library

Katy Hamilton compares recordings of Antonín Dvořák's ever-popular Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor 'Dumky' and picks a favourite.

Dvořák's music, suffused with the rhythms and melodic inflections of Bohemian and Moravian folk traditions might never have gained international recognition beyond his Czech homeland but for the enthusiastic and public endorsement of a certain Johannes Brahms. After that, Dvořák sometimes reined in the freshness and charm of his music in favour of a more serious and occasionally portentous Teutonic style. But when it came to his final piano trio, Dvořák happily returned to his Slavic folk roots, aiming to write an unashamedly popular work. Made out of six movements, each modelled on the dumka (an instrumental folk form with two contrasting sections) Dvořák hit the spot with his public and today the Dumky trio is still a great favourite with audiences -- and recording companies.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0009r41)
Alison Balsom

Presented by Kate Molleson.

An interview with English mega-star trumpeter Alison Balsom to talk about her new album but also about her commitment to music education and to finding a better gender balance in the music industry.

Music criticism today: we pit traditional journalism against the modern digital era to assess their respective challenges and advantages. We go to a concert of symphonic music and see how a newspaper critic and a digital blogger would review it.

And photographs of music stars taken by Freddy Warren at Ronnie Scott's during the 1960s, part of an exhibition at The Barbican Centre marking the 60th anniversary of London’s legendary jazz club.

Jacob Collier is a musical phenomenon. A multi-instrumentalist, singer, arranger, composer and producer, Jacob has been wowing the world with his breathtaking understanding of music and his amazing abilities on many different instruments.

The breadth of Jacob’s musical imagination leads him to some of the classical greats including Bach, Debussy and Schumann, as well as folk song from Bulgaria and jazz pianist Brad Mehldau’s take on a Lennon and McCartney classic.

And at 2 o’clock Jacob delves into the archives of the British Library to reveal his Must Listen piece performed by his grandfather, the violinist Derek Collier.

Jessica Curry with glorious video game music and a chat with composer Grant Kirkhope

Join Jessica Curry on a brand new adventure for Radio 3 as she delves into the exhilarating and joyous world of music for video games.

Some of the most cutting edge, dynamic and expressive music being made today is composed for video games. And the music, like the games themselves, comes in all shapes and sizes: from intimate chamber music to full jazz bands or electronica to symphonic music on the largest scale, so if you’ve never listened to music from games before, prepare to have your expectations confounded!

Jessica presents a heady mix of music to delight the most ardent gaming fans as well as enticing those who may never have even played a video game - with classic scores, new releases and some of her favourites.

Today she talks to composer British composer Grant Kirkhope who has scored some of the best loved video games characters from Banjo-Kazooie to Mario alongside a catalogue of hit games that have sold over 30 million. Grant chats about the terror involved in scoring the iconic mustachioed plumber and how melody is the key to great games music.

Sarah Walker with an exhilarating musical mix

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.

There are pairs of all sorts on show today: pairs of hands at the piano enjoying the fun created by Percy Grainger, pairs of violins playing sensual lines by Handel and a pair of intriguing medieval musicians that have Sarah disappearing down - as she calls it - the internet rabbit hole.

Sarah also contrasts a tiny symphony by William Boyce with an expansive orchestral characterisation by Sergei Prokofiev. She plays traditional Syrian music by way of Lancaster and hears the richness of Rachmaninov unroll as pianist Daniil Trifonov joins forces with the Philadelphia Orchestra and conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0009qyr)
Venki Ramakrishnan

Sir Venki Ramakrishnan is President of the Royal Society and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 2009 for his research into the ribosome – the mysterious ancient molecule that decodes DNA, what he terms ‘the mother of all molecules’. He’s what you might call a science all-rounder: he gained a PhD in Physics before turning to Biology, and his Nobel Prize was in Chemistry. Born in India, he moved to the US as a postgraduate student, and in 1999 came to Britain to work at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge.

Alongside science Venki Ramakrishnan has another passion – for music, and, in particular, chamber music, which grew out of the Indian classical music he heard as a child. His son Raman is the cellist with the Horszowski Trio and we hear their performance of music by Schubert, as well as a Brahms piano quartet and a Beethoven cello sonata, reflecting both Raman's and Venki’s deep engagement with that instrument.

Venki's other great love is for the violin, and he chooses music by Mozart alongside Bach's Double Violin Concerto - which Venki himself played whilst learning the violin as a graduate student in the USA.

He talks to Michael about the central role of music in his life, about how he would reform the Nobel Prizes in science, and why he swapped the mountains of Utah for the fens of East Anglia.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b0wrpd)
How does video game music work?

Bleep... bleep.... bleeeeep

It's amazing how a few electronic bleeps can tell us so much about what's going on in a video game without us even being aware of it

But music in video games has come a long way from the arcades, from the bleeps and bloops of Space Invaders and Super Mario to epic orchestral scores of the Legend of Zelda and Bioshock, Tom Service goes on an interactive odyssey to discover the secrets behind our favourite video game music. Along the way he meets composer Jessica Curry and video game expert Tim Summers who tell us what's really happening in the music when we're playing, the composer tricks of the trade and how video games can get new audiences closer to classical music.

bleeeeeeep... GAME OVER.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b01n11dy)
The Worst Form of Government

This week's Words and Music explores the theme of democracy. Democracy is the worst form of government, except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time. Winston Churchill's now famous quote underpins today's edition. Democracy is hailed as a force for good - promoting freedom, equality and self-governance - but has been used and misused for personal gain and political oppression. Nelson Mandela describes his astonishment in his memoir Long Walk to Freedom, on meeting Inuits from Northern Europe, that people from 'the top of the world' should have any knowledge of his political struggle at the southern tip of Africa. Television, he writes, had become a force for promoting democracy.

Throughout the programme, we hear the voices of colonised and marginalised peoples as they struggle for their right to be heard, their right to vote, and their right to live a free life.

With music from Copland & Shostakovich to Somalian poet and rapper K'naan, and readings performed by Lisa Dillon and Ray Fearon.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m0009qyz)
The M1 Symphony

The dynamic, often dramatic, life of the M1 in words, sounds and a thrilling new work performed by the BBC Philharmonic, as Britain’s first major motorway marks its 60th anniversary.

In a powerful composition specially commissioned by BBC Radio 3, The M1 Symphony depicts how the M1 has transformed the British landscape and millions of lives. A place of routine and drama, where a momentary lapse can change everything, with terrifying speed.

Documentary producer Laurence Grissell and composer Alex Woolf first collaborated last year on The NHS Symphony. Their new work explores a very different but no less transformative feature of British life.

When it was opened 60 years ago, the M1 was truly revolutionary. No roundabouts, no crossroads, no traffic lights, just one continuous road connecting north and south. It dramatically cut traffic jams and journey times.

But from day one, the M1 would extract a high human and environmental cost.

A life-changing collision, an endangered ancient woodland and the soul-destroying frustrations of the daily commute form part of this unique tapestry of new interviews, archive recordings, ambient sounds and original music.

Conductor: Mark Heron
Composer: Alex Woolf

Summerhall 2019 (3/3)

THE LADIES ROOM by Gemma Bedeau

In Gemma Bedeau’s first drama for radio, she invites us to join three friends on a girls’ night out in the Ladies room of a favourite nightclub. This is usually a safe space where women help you back into your jumpsuit and offer advice about how to get over your ex-boyfriend. But on this particular evening, Amy, Becca and Keisha can no longer avoid dealing with the past. A little too much alcohol stirs up old resentments, turning this Ladies room into more of a crucible than a retreat. These women must come apart in order to come together again.

SUN 23:30 Slow Radio (m0009qz3)
Downtown Nashville, Tennessee

Think of the American South and one man-made sound plays out evocatively across the landscape: the horn of a passing freight train. For a century and a half it's been almost synonymous with the idea of America, particularly where the rural blends with the urban. In the city of Nashville, Tennessee - 'music city' - the last century has been accompanied by another signature sound: the honky tonk bar.

In this leisurely half hour, we witness the musical arrival of a freight train as it crosses the public highway into downtown Nashville. The rattle of the tracks and sonorous horn dissolve into the sounds of Broadway, the strip where every premises has windows open onto the street, spilling music out to draw tourists in. And between the bars, buskers plug the gaps.

It takes about half an hour to walk up and down Broadway from the Cumberland River - past honky tonks throbbing with Dolly Parton and Lynyrd Skynyrd covers, street renditions of Louis's Wonderful World and pedal-powered bars pumping out hits for bachelorette parties.

The sounds which compete for our attention within this cacophony provide as vivid a snapshot of contemporary Nashville as the freight train horn that sits so snugly within this cityscape, framing the downtown walk.

Produced by Hannah Dean with recordings by Alan Hall.

Harrison Birtwistle (b 1934)

Episode 1

This week Donald Macleod meets Sir Harrison Birtwistle, described as “the most forceful and uncompromisingly original composer of his generation”. We hear his major compositions, broadly in chronological order, and reveal the preoccupations and processes behind a singular music imagination.

In this episode, Birtwistle talks about his daily working life, and about his early years at what was then the Royal Manchester College of Music.
He tells Donald about how his problems with formal education didn't stop him becoming a voracious reader. Beginning as a clarinettist, he found himself developing a creative inner life beyond being an instrumentalist, and wanting to create a music that didn’t exist. We also hear about the infamous premiere of his first opera Punch and Judy at Aldeburgh, where much of the audience – including its commissioner Benjamin Britten – walked out at the interval.

Scottish sunrise and Nordic soul-baring

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and its chief conductor Thomas Dausgaard stir great passion as they render some of the biggest tunes in classical music. Sibelius's deeply personal, and thoroughly melodic Second Symphony ends the concert. Yulianna Avdeeva is the thrilling soloist in Tchaikovsky's most popular piano concerto, his first. And before all that, Scottish folk song abounds in Peter Maxwell Davies's camp classic: An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise.

Presented by Andrew McGregor

Recorded at City Halls, Glasgow on Thursday 24th October.

MON 22:45 The Way I See It (m0009r45)
Roxane Gay and Christ's Entry into Journalism

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, takes us on a deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Leading cultural figures in the series include Grammy- and Emmy-award-winning Hollywood actor and comedian Steve Martin, one of the founders of minimalism – composer Steve Reich and stand-up comedian Margaret Cho. Each episode introduces us to an important art work in the collection, but asks how our own perspective affects our appreciation of the piece.

So, how does a jazz pianist see Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie? How does one of the first black women to write for Marvel comics see the difficult truths in Kara Walker’s sweeping image of African-American history? What does a top fashion designer decode from the clothes painted by an artist in Harlem in the 1930s?

This week we begin with American writer and commentator Roxane Gay, author of The New York Times best-selling essay collection Bad Feminist. She chooses a work by Kara Walker, best known for creating black-and-white silhouette works that invoke themes of African American racial identity. Roxane has selected Walker's massive 11-by-18-foot collage “Christ’s Entry into Journalism” from 2017. Riffing off “Christ’s Entry into Jerusalem,” the piece is covered with ink drawings depicting figures real and imagined, past and present, from James Brown to Martin Luther King, Jr. and Donald Trump.

Episode 2

This week Donald Macleod meets Sir Harrison Birtwistle, described as “the most forceful and uncompromisingly original composer of his generation”. We hear his major compositions, broadly in chronological order, and reveal the preoccupations and processes behind a singular music imagination.

In this episode, Donald Macleod explores Birtwistle’s time in America, after an invitation to teach there by his great friend Morton Feldman. We hear about his collaboration with the electronic music pioneer Peter Zinovieff on the tape piece Chronometer, and about how Breughel’s engraving The Triumph of Time foreshadows the structure of Birtwistle’s massive orchestral work of the same name.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m0009s1b)
Writing Real Life from Brexit to Grenfell

Ali Smith, Jay Bernard and James Graham join Matthew Sweet at the British Library in a discussion organised with the Royal Society of Literature.

Making art from real events is as old to writing as the pen – older. But what happens when the events you are writing about are recent, or happening as you write? What are the writer’s duties to fact? How can writing bear witness to contemporary moments of social upheaval or human disasters? In writing the ‘now’, where does non-fiction stop and fictive creation begin? In this discussion, three writers, across forms, consider how to write real events.

Ali Smith has published three novels in a four-novel seasonal cycle, Autumn, Winter and Spring, exploring time, society and art in the context of Brexit Britain.
Jay Bernard’s collection, Surge, explores the significance of events ranging from the New Cross Fire in 1981 to the 2017 Grenfell disaster.
James Graham’s play The Vote took place in the last 90 minutes before polls closed in the 2015 General Election, and was broadcast live on Channel 4 on election night. His 2019 drama for Channel 4, Brexit: The Uncivil War, explored the very recent history of the Brexit referendum.

Producer: Zahid Warley.

Es Devlin on Felix Gonzalez-Torres's Perfect Lovers

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features British stage designer and sculptor Es Devlin. Devlin has made large scale touring stage sculptures in collaboration with Beyoncé, Kanye West Adele, U2, and the Royal Opera House in London, as well as designing the London Olympic Closing Ceremony in 2012. She has selected Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ Perfect Lovers - in which two synchronized clocks, like those typically found in offices and public spaces, are displayed side by side. One will inevitably stop before the other. Created whilst Felix Gonzalez-Torres's partner was ill, it embodies the tension that comes from two people living side-by-side as life moves forward towards death. Laycock died of AIDS six years before Gonzalez-Torres's own death in 1996. What will one of the world's greatest set designers see in this simple, poignant work?

They also discuss the music he made whilst living on the Hebridean island of Raasay, and what role landscape plays in his work
Birtwistle has described his music as ‘mechanical pastoral’. This style is heard most clearly in the composer’s favourite piece in his whole output, Carmen Arcadiae Mechanicae Perpetuum.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0009t0x)
Harrison Birtwistle (b 1934)

Episode 4

This week Donald Macleod meets Sir Harrison Birtwistle, described as “the most forceful and uncompromisingly original composer of his generation”. We hear his major compositions, broadly in chronological order, and reveal the preoccupations and processes behind a singular music imagination.

In this episode, Birtwistle talks about some of his non-musical inspirations, from the paintings of Paul Klee to the films of Quentin Tarantino or the written words of Lorine Niedecker. He reveals how time, and the instruments for measuring time, have inspired many of his compositions, most notably in the fiendish piano work, Harrison’s Clocks, and he talks about why he enjoyed the furore over Panic, his notorious orchestral work performed at the 1995 Last Night of the Proms.

Opera Matinee: Lucia di Lammermoor

Tom McKinney continues his week of Scottish-flavoured afternoons with a performance of Donizetti's masterpiece Lucia di Lammermoor, inspired by the novel by Walter Scott.
Written in an inspired outpouring of creativity, Donizetti's three act Lucia di Lammermoor is one of the most important and popular masterpieces in the Romantic Italian Bel Canto tradition. A story of love, hate and passion centred around the love triangle of Lucia, Edgardo and Enrico. It has been in the Vienna State Opera's repertory since 1926. This recording from Vienna was made this summer with the Russian soprano Olga Peretyatko in the title role.

Based on Bach

As part of the 300th anniversary celebrations of The Queen's College, Oxford, David Goode plays a wide-ranging programme rooted in Bach and specially devised to show off its famous organ. Built by the Danish firm Frobenius and installed in 1965, the uncompromisingly neo-baroque instrument was in the vanguard of the UK's classical organ revival, the perfect vehicle for this music from Germany, England and Scandinavia.

Presented live from The Queen's College, Oxford, by Martin Handley.

In this episode, Birtwistle talks to Donald about his compulsion to compose, and how the music of the past continues to inspire and fascinate him. We hear how the Greek myth of the minotaur was an irresistible subject for an opera, and how a lifelong fascination with moths inspired a new work meditating on loss.
