9.30am Building a Library – Jeremy Sams on Ravel’s String Quartet

Maurice Ravel finished his String Quartet in F major in 1903 at the age of 28. In some way it's modelled on Debussy's String Quartet of 10 years earlier. But it has been described as being "opposite to Debussy's symbolism, abandoning the vagueness and formlessness of the early French impressionists in favour of a return to classic standards." It quickly established itself as a standard work in the chamber music repertory.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000gf06)
Layers of musical time revealed by pianist Keval Shah

Pianist Keval Shah compares the last movement of Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony to a long distance train journey, finds Martha Argerich and Maurice Ravel painting watery sounds together, and describes how John Adams uses a huge symphony orchestra to conjure up the feeling of being suspended in space.

Keval also shows how two tiny but vivid stories are brought to life by song composer Hugo Wolf and plays a four hundred year old piece that sounds as if it was written yesterday.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m000gf0j)
From the Met

The Flying Dutchman

Der fliegende Holländer, The Flying Dutchman, has been condemned for eternity to sail his ship, and only once every seven years is allowed to come ashore to seek redemption by a faithful woman. The raging storm has driven the Dutchman to a Norwegian harbour where he moors beside Daland. He's impressed by the Dutchman's wealth and offers him shelter, and is no less impressed by the Dutchman's interest in his daughter, Senta. The Dutchman hopes he has found his redemption in Senta, who is looking for a change to her mundane life, and she eagerly accepts the Dutchman's declaration of love and his proposal. But he wrongly thinks she is unfaithful, so returns to his ship and sets sail without her.

The starry cast at the Met includes Anja Kampe's Met debut as Senta and the bass-baritone Evgeny Nikitin as the Dutchman.
Today's performance from the Metropolitan Opera House is presented by Mary-Jo Heath with commentator Ira Siff.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000gdzl)
Isabel Allende

Isabel Allende’s first novel, “The House of the Spirits” catapulted her to literary stardom, and was acclaimed as a classic of Latin American magic realism. That was nearly forty years ago and she’s not stopped writing since: with twenty novels and four volumes of memoir, she’s been translated all over the world and has sold some seventy-four million books. They’re vivid family sagas, with eccentric characters, dramatic reversals, discoveries of lost children, violent death, disease and revolution, and sudden consuming love affairs.

But Isabel Allende’s own life is as extraordinary as any of her novels. Abandoned by her father as a small child, she spent her early years travelling across South America with her stepfather, who was a diplomat. He was the cousin of Salvador Allende, Chile’s socialist leader, who became Isabel’s godfather. But when Allende was deposed by the right-wing government of General Pinochet in 1973, Isabel – by then married, with children – became caught up in the violent revolution and had to flee the country. She now lives with her third husband in California.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Isabel Allende reflects on her extraordinary life, and reveals how she has found happiness now in her seventies. Music choices include Vivaldi, Mozart’s Flute Concerto No. 1, Albinoni, the Chilean singer Victor Jara, a moving song from the Spanish Civil War, and a Mexican love song from the 1940s, “Kiss Me Lots”.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b1pb09)
The Sea

Join Tom on a Listening Service voyage across our oceans to discover why music has long been inspired by the sea - from Sibelius and Mendelssohn to John Luther Adams and the Beatles - how have composers tried to capture the ocean in their music? Is it even possible?

Meanwhile, Tom discovers music that is literally created by the sea itself from Blackpool to the Arctic, and dives down into the sounds of coral reefs with marine biologist Helen Scales to hear the noisy vibrant reality of life under the waves, from snapping pistol shrimps and angry damselfish to singing whales.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b060bprw)
A Celebration of Sport

The joy, drama and human folly of the sporting calendar from rugby to the Olympics. The readers are Robert Powell and Pippa Bennett-Warner. As people recover from activities for this year's BBC Sports Relief, Words and Music takes us through the British summer sporting calendar from the optimism of April and the Grand National through the three-jerseyed days of the early cricket season into the warmth of Wimbledon, the heat of the British Open Golf, the elegance of Henley and culminating with competitors leaving for the Olympics in June.

Music from Warlock, Weber, Carl Davis and William Alwyn blends with the sometimes surprising words of Shakespeare, Milton and the many writers on sport from the heyday of Edwardian endeavour to the 20th-century frivolity of PG Wodehouse and John Betjeman and on to the enthusiasms of Alison Uttley and the beautiful reflections of the very best cricket writers like Neville Cardus and all-rounder Simon Barnes, with poetry from Roger McGough and John Arlott.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (m000gdzs)
Almost Gone

An ear floats off to the galaxies, listening in on Earth from a cosmic vantage. An audio-collage written and composed by Heather Phillipson, summoning the listener into a deranged sonic landscape, addressing the Earth as an eruption, on the verge of termination.

Mixing bucolic lyric poem, music-sampling, the cut-up, weather forecasts, psychedelic literature and astronomic travelogue with the tone of a pre-recorded message from the beyond, Heather Phillipson’s feature proposes the ear as an airborne dustbin. Beginning with a toenail and grass blades, then incrementally zooming out to the heavens, her composition probes the relative significance of life-forms and ideas in a quest for strangeness. Throughout, pop references set the agenda, tethering everything to earthly culture, while words and sounds take flight, suggesting listening as a way of becoming alien. Almost Gone is its own kind of space-time travel, sounding out other dimensions, tuning in to climactic vertigo. Listen in the dark.

Heather Phillipson is a British artist who works across video, sculpture, web projects, music, drawing and poetry. THE END, her sculpture for the Fourth Plinth, Trafalgar Square, is unveiled on March 26th 2020. She has also been commissioned for the next Duveen Galleries commission at Tate Britain, launching in June 2020.

SUN 19:15 Sunday Feature (m000gdzx)
New Generation Thinkers: The Air that I Breathe

Dr Alun Withey became interested in our attitudes to clean air through his study of the beard. A curious piece of Victorian wisdom caught his eye. In extolling the wisdom of the full beard a particularly keen enthusiast suggested that the beard was 'nature's respirator'. Further research lead him to the inventor of the respirator, one Julius Jeffreys, and the subsequent use of it. Following on from that was a growing understanding of how the Victorians responded to the air that they were forced to breathe in increasingly smog-bound cities.

He talks to experts today about our city air and why our thinking remains somewhat confused when it comes to our attitudes to clean air when the pea souper smogs have gone, and - without any reference to face masks used for Coronavirus protection - he explores the extent to which respirators then and now have proved either popular or effective as a response to the fundamental desire for clean air.

The Shadow of a Doubt

World premiere of a newly discovered play by Edith Wharton from 1901, starring Phoebe Fox, Francesca Annis, Paul Ready, David Horovitch and Don Gilet.

Introduced by Laura Rattray, Reader in American Studies, University of Glasgow
Adapted for radio by Melissa Murray
Directed by Emma Harding

Long before she achieved fame with her novel, 'The Age of Innocence', Edith Wharton wrote a number of plays. But they were all believed lost until two academics, Laura Rattray and Mary Chinery, discovered the complete manuscript of 'The Shadow of a Doubt' in 2017. Wharton's play - which pivots on the issue of assisted suicide - was about to be staged in New York in early 1901, before the production was abandoned for unknown reasons.

Kate, a former nurse, has recently married above her class to John Derwent, whose first wife Kate had nursed following an horrific accident. But others are suspicious of Kate's social ascent. And others have knowledge that could destroy her.

SUN 23:00 Nordic Sounds (m000gf05)
Power and Politics

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough looks at a few of the ways that Nordic political history has influenced the region's music. It's often said that it’s the winners who get to write history, but is this true of music? Political circumstances often create the impulse to record, preserve and promote a culture’s musical heritage. We'll hear music by Marie Boine, Jean Sibelius, Ole Bull, and the words of a dying man preserved on a medieval manuscript.

Produced by Laura Yogasundram.

Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)

Janne

Donald Macleod delves into the life and work of the man who is almost universally recognised as Finland's greatest ever composer - Jean Sibelius. Sibelius's music went a long way towards establishing a sense of national musical identity in Finland - a tradition that has flourished there ever since. Sibelius felt a strong connection with his homeland and the nature that flourished there, and the nationalist flavour of his works was highly appealing to a Finnish audience at a time when Finland was fighting for independence from Russia. In this episode, Donald explores Sibelius's youth as a promising violinist, the early impressions that the Finnish natural world had on the budding musician, and his time studying in both Helsinki and Berlin.

Later, Martyn Brabbins conducts the fourth symphony by Scottish composer James MacMillan, who wrote that he was interested "in the interplay of different types of material, following upon a fascination with music as ritual that has stretched from Monteverdi in the early 17th century through to Boulez and Birtwistle in the present day."

MON 22:45 The Essay (m000gd6k)
Higher Thoughts and the Meaning of Welsh Mountains

Snowdonia

Jon Gower, writer and keen walker of the Welsh mountains, explores the unique characteristics of each of Wales' five ranges and reflects on what they mean to the people who live among them.

For many people, Wales is synonymous with its mountains. They occupy a unique place in the country's ancient mythology, its history and its culture, defining who rules the country, who lives in it, and how they survive. But each of the mountain ranges of Wales has its own unique character. In this series of The Essay, Jon Gower paints a detailed portrait of the landscape of these higher places, and in doing so, explores how they’ve shaped the country's psyche.

In the first essay Jon considers Snowdonia as a place of refuge, from the Welsh princes that built their castles here to take advantage of the natural defensive system, to the rare plants finding sanctuary on almost unscalable ledges.

In ‘The Black Mountains’, Jon looks at the way these hills, benign and balmy on some occasions, at others beset by fierce weather, have attracted writers and poets to it like a honeypot, from Owen Sheers to Jan Morris: just as Ordnance Survey maps are covered in contour lines, so too is the landscape around here seemingly covered in lines, of poetry.

Jon sees the Brecon Beacons as being all about water - from their formation by gargantuan glaciers, rumbling slowly across the land gouging valleys and shuffling rocks ever onward, to the many waterfalls tumbling into space. The most remarkable of these is Sgwd yr Eira, the ‘fall of snow’, a veritable avalanche of spume and rush where you can actually walk behind the curtain of water.

In his essay on Epynt, Jon reflects on a landscape that offers meagre grazing for animals, dotted with small ponds and peat bogs, and which remains haunted by the eviction of many inhabitants by the War Office in 1939. Given over to military training, the scything of wind through the tough grasses is for most of the year punctuated by the sound of mortar fire, anti-tank weaponry and machine guns.

And in ‘The Preseli Mountains’, Jon explores the most mystical range of mountains, which are barely mountains, though the highest of them, Foel Cwmcerwyn, stands tall and sentinel enough to have guided the sailors of west Wales safely to shore. On a clear day you can see not only the patterned field tapestries of Pembrokeshire – shot through with the gold threads of gorse hedges – but also nine other Welsh counties, and the charcoal edge of Ireland across the sea.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09r4dlc)
Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)

From Happiness to Despair

Donald Macleod delves into the life and work of the man who is almost universally recognised as Finland's greatest ever composer - Jean Sibelius. Sibelius's music went a long way towards establishing a sense of national musical identity in Finland - a tradition that has flourished there ever since. Sibelius felt a strong connection with his homeland and the nature that flourished there, and the nationalist flavour of his works was highly appealing to a Finnish audience at a time when Finland was fighting for independence from Russia. In today's episode, Donald explores Sibelius's rise to prominence with his first big success, Kullervo, the Lemminkainen Suite and his First Symphony; and the problems - both financial and marital - which followed as a result of Sibelius's heavy drinking.

Schumann, Liszt and Dvorak from Welsh Festivals in 2019

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a selection of music recorded at three festivals in Wales in 2019, including the Gower, Machynlleth and Presteigne festivals. The concert begins in a former chapel, the Tabernacle, which is now home of the Machynlleth Festival, and where Camille Thomas and Julius Drake performed the dreamlike romantic Fantasiestücke by Schumann. This is followed by two of Liszt’s often virtuosic Transcendental Studies, with the pianist Llyr Williams performing at the Gower Festival. Dvořák’s lively and joyful String Quartet titled the American ends the programme, with a performance by the Albion Quartet in Presteigne.

Celebrating the BBC Philharmonic

Works by Rudi Stephan and Steve Elcock, live from MediaCityUK, Salford, plus music by Mendelssohn and Shostakovich.

Composer Rudi Stephan's career was cut brutally short aged 28: a casualty of World War I. Considered the most promising German composer of his generation, today we hear his Music for Orchestra (1912) which searches for new paths in expressionist colours

There's also music by Chesterfield-born Steve Elcock, whose work was first performed by the BBC Philharmonic in 2009. Today, the orchestra give the world premiere of his Fourth Symphony – ‘A golden rose fallen from the flat sea of time’. Of its title, he says: “I will only say that you must make of it what you can”. The one-movement piece explores a move away from serial music to the magnetic pull of tonality

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m000gbtl)
Does Growth Matter?

The rate of social and technological change in the 20th century was unarguably frenetic. A key measure used by politicians, economists and journalists in that time has been GDP growth. But is Growth as a pointer still fit for purpose? And should all countries still aspire to achieve growth? Is the world on a longer-term slowdown? Would that be a bad thing? And as the shock of coronavirus echoes through communities and economies around the world, will our conceptions of value and cost be redefined?

Anne McElvoy discusses economic futures, with Danny Dorling, demographer, writer, professor of Geography at Oxford University, and author of forthcoming "Slowdown:The end of the Great Acceleration - and Why It's Good for the Planet, the Economy, and Our Lives", which is published in April. http://www.dannydorling.org/ and also www.worldmapper.org

Petr Barton writes and teaches economics in Prague, and is Chief Economist at Natland Investment Group. The webtool discussed in this programme can be found at https://coronavirus.clevermaps.io/

Richard Davies has been senior advisor to the UK Treasury, and the Bank of England and has been Economics Editor at The Economist. He teaches at the LSE and his recent book, "Extreme Economies", is published by Penguin.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000gbtn)
Higher Thoughts and the Meaning of Welsh Mountains

The Black Mountains

Jon Gower, writer and keen walker of the Welsh mountains, explores the unique characteristics of each of Wales's five ranges and reflects on what they mean to the people who live among them.

For many people, Wales is synonymous with its mountains. They occupy a unique place in the country's ancient mythology, its history and its culture, defining who rules the country, who lives in it, and how they survive. But each of the mountain ranges of Wales has its own unique character. In this series of The Essay, Jon Gower paints a detailed portrait of the landscape of these higher places, and in doing so, explores how they’ve shaped the country's psyche.

In ‘The Black Mountains’, Jon looks at the way these hills, benign and balmy on some occasions, at others beset by fierce weather, have attracted writers and poets to it like a honeypot, from Owen Sheers to Jan Morris: just as Ordnance Survey maps are covered in contour lines, so too is the landscape around here seemingly covered in lines, of poetry.

Donald Macleod delves into the life and work of the man who is almost universally recognised as Finland's greatest ever composer - Jean Sibelius. Sibelius's music went a long way towards establishing a sense of national musical identity in Finland - a tradition that has flourished there ever since. Sibelius felt a strong connection with his homeland and the nature that flourished there, and the nationalist flavour of his works was highly appealing to a Finnish audience at a time when Finland was fighting for independence from Russia. In today's programme, Donald focuses on the political turmoil in Finland before the outbreak of the First World War, which included an arrest for Sibelius. He also charts a few of the composer's musical triumphs, including his Second Symphony which was adopted as an anthem of national freedom, and increasing personal troubles as his drinking spiralled out of control.

Poulenc and Brahms from Welsh Festivals in 2019

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a selection of music recorded at three festivals in Wales in 2019, including in this programme, the Gower and Machynlleth festivals. The concert starts with music performed by the celebrated Welsh pianist Llŷr Williams at the Gower Festival, where he delighted the audience with Poulenc’s Les Soirées de Nazelles. Llŷr Williams introduced the music by saying that he felt the music was a set of eight depictions of the composer’s friends, sitting round the piano at Nazelles. This is followed by a classic of the cello repertoire, the Cello Sonata No 1 by Brahms. It was performed by Camille Thomas at the Machynlleth Festival, and is a particular favourite of the pianist Julius Drake.

Celebrating the BBC Philharmonic

Works by young British composer Anna Clyne, alongside Berlioz and the timeless The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams

Anna Clyne, one of Britain’s most exciting young composers, describes Night Ferry as ‘music of voyages, from stormy darkness to enchanted worlds’. True, but that hardly captures the thrilling turbulence of the ride it takes into uncharted waters

Listen closely and you might hear echoes of the similarly restless Symphonie fantastique – but in truth Berlioz’s utterly wild work, written under the twin influences of opium and unrequited love, is like nothing else

In between, Vaughan Williams’s beloved classic of the English rural springtime injects a welcome note of tranquillity

They occupy a unique place in the country's ancient mythology, its history and its culture, defining who rules the country, who lives in it, and how they survive. But each of the mountain ranges of Wales has its own unique character. In this series of The Essay, Jon Gower paints a detailed portrait of the landscape of these higher places, and in doing so, explores how they’ve shaped the country's psyche.

Jon sees the Brecon Beacons as being all about water - from their formation by gargantuan glaciers, rumbling slowly across the land gouging valleys and shuffling rocks ever onward, to the many waterfalls tumbling into space. The most remarkable of these is Sgwd yr Eira, the ‘fall of snow’, a veritable avalanche of spume and rush where you can actually walk behind the curtain of water.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09r7sff)
Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)

A Mountain to be Climbed

Donald Macleod delves into the life and work of the man who is almost universally recognised as Finland's greatest ever composer - Jean Sibelius. Sibelius's music went a long way towards establishing a sense of national musical identity in Finland - a tradition that has flourished there ever since. Sibelius felt a strong connection with his homeland and the nature that flourished there, and the nationalist flavour of his works was highly appealing to a Finnish audience at a time when Finland was fighting for independence from Russia. In today's programme, Donald explores Sibelius's years of enforced sobriety and his attempts to settle his mounting debts as the First World War loomed on the horizon. We'll hear from his next two symphonies - his 4th and 5th - along with one of Sibelius's most performed works - the Valse triste from his incidental music to the play Kuomela.

Liszt, Messiaen and Walton from Welsh Festivals in 2019

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a selection of music recorded at three festivals in Wales in 2019, including the Gower, Machynlleth and Presteigne festivals. The concert begins at the Gower Festival, with Liszt’s virtuosic and dramatic Ballade No 2, performed by the pianist Llŷr Williams. This is followed by a work composed in a concentration camp, Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, given in a recital at the Machynlleth Festival by Camille Thomas and Julius Drake. The final piece in the programme is the highly demanding String Quartet in A minor, which William Walton found quite a challenge to compose. It was performed at the Presteigne Festival by the Albion Quartet.

The Philharmonia perform Bruckner, Wagner and Schoenberg

Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Philharmonia in Wagner, Schoenberg and Bruckner. Exploring the nature and intensity of love, Wagner brings to life the tragic beauty in the story of Tristan und Isolde, while the lyricism of Schoenberg’s early tone poem Verklärte Nacht reveals his feelings for the woman he would later marry. Bruckner's Seventh Symphony (one of his most popular works) is a musical monument to Wagner. Bruckner began writing it in anticipation of Wagner's death (as he was in poor health), and featured four Wagner tubas - the first time the instrument appeared in a symphony. Far from being mournful, the work is ultimately optimistic in character, with the final brass fanfare rounding off this late-romantic programme in a triumphant orchestral flourish.

Higher Thoughts and the Meaning of Welsh Mountains

Epynt

Jon Gower, writer and keen walker of the Welsh mountains, explores the unique characteristics of each of Wales's five ranges and reflects on what they mean to the people who live among them.

For many people, Wales is synonymous with its mountains. They occupy a unique place in the country's ancient mythology, its history and its culture, defining who rules the country, who lives in it, and how they survive. But each of the mountain ranges of Wales has its own unique character. In this series of The Essay, Jon Gower paints a detailed portrait of the landscape of these higher places, and in doing so, explores how they’ve shaped the country's psyche.

In his essay on Epynt, Jon reflects on a landscape that offers meagre grazing for animals, dotted with small ponds and peat bogs, and which remains haunted by the eviction of many inhabitants by the War Office in 1939. Given over to military training, the scything of wind through the tough grasses is for most of the year punctuated by the sound of mortar fire, anti-tank weaponry and machine guns.

In this series of The Essay, Jon Gower paints a detailed portrait of the landscape of these higher places, and in doing so, explores how they’ve shaped the country's psyche.

In ‘The Preseli Mountains’, Jon explores the most mystical range of mountains, which are barely mountains, though the highest of them, Foel Cwmcerwyn, stands tall and sentinel enough to have guided the sailors of west Wales safely to shore. On a clear day you can see not only the patterned field tapestries of Pembrokeshire – shot through with the gold threads of gorse hedges – but also nine other Welsh counties, and the charcoal edge of Ireland across the sea.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000bs1x)
A Venezuelan Music Special

Venezuela is buckling under a severe economic crisis and in the capital, once a bohemian mecca riding high on oil prices, the streets are deserted in the evenings due to spiralling crime rates. Despite the gloomy headlines, music continues to thrive. Jennifer Lucy Allan travelled to Caracas recently and returns with pockets full of music, including: cowboy songs from the Southern plains; Changa Tuki, the hard electronic dance music of the barrios; and feverish musique concrète.

We also explore the idea of electro-shamanism with Venezuelan ambient-electronic composer Miguel Noya. He discusses how certain frequencies and binaural sound patterns can have transformative impacts on the brain, rooted in his experiences of ritual music amongst the indigenous people in the north of Venezuela.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
A Reduced Listening Production for BBC Radio 3.
