9.30am Building a Library: Nicholas Kenyon on Mozart’s Symphony No 39 in E flat, K 543

Mozart's Symphony No. 39 IN E♭ major K. 543 is the first of a set of three (his last symphonies) that he composed in rapid succession during the summer of 1788. Contrary to myth, the evidence indicates that Mozart heard the three symphonies performed. He had orchestra parts copied, an expense he would not have incurred unless he needed them for a performance. This colourful and ebullient work remains one of the most popular pieces in the symphonic repertoire.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b05vgxvp)
Szymanowski: Krol Roger

Tonight's Opera on 3 is another chance to hear Szymanowski's rarely performed masterpiece, Król Roger (King Roger), from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden which was recorded live in May 2015. It stars Mariusz Kwiecien in the title role, conducted by Antonio Pappano in the production by Kasper Holten.

Szymanowski's great opera, which had its premiere in 1926, grew out of his passion for Mediterranean culture as an amalgam of different peoples and religions. It also treats some of the themes that first appeared in his lost homoerotic novel Efebos. Set in 12th-century Sicily, the opera traces the journey to enlightenment of the Christian King Roger II through his encounter with a mysterious pagan Shepherd. While Roger's court call for the Shepherd to be put to death, Roger's queen Roxana urges her husband to accept the Shepherd's creed. Roger gradually realizes that he can only maintain his integrity by neither merely upholding the law of the church, or by yielding to the wild freedom (symbolised in abandoned dances) of the Shepherd and his followers. In his final ecstatic soliloquy, Roger attains self-realization.

Andrew McGregor introduces the performance that was originally heard live in May 2015.

Roxana.....Georgia Jarman (Soprano)

Lockdown Theatre Festival: Rockets and Blue Lights

By Winsome Pinnock.
The Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester’s production of Rockets and Blue Lights had not yet had its press night when the theatres closed in March 2020. Lockdown Theatre Festival gives it a new lease of life on radio, using technological solutions to record the actors at home.

Amid the gloom of Victorian England, Thomas, a black sailor prepares to take one last voyage, while the ageing artist JMW Turner seeks inspiration in a half-remembered story. In 21st-century London, an actress finds herself bound by history – two centuries after abolitionists won her ancestors their freedom. The play retells British history through the prism of the slave trade. Fusing fact with fiction, past with present, the powerfully personal with the fiercely political, it asks who owns our past - and who has the right to tell its stories?

This production contains strong language.

“A major theme of Rockets and Blue Lights is the legacy of history and the ongoing impact of this legacy on the descendants of Africans who were enslaved. Another theme of the play is the significance, necessity and power of love in the face of such a history and the challenge of achieving that. I am also interested in the representation of painful subjects – what we choose to represent and what we deny.” Winsome Pinnock

Winsome Pinnock’s award-winning plays include The Wind of Change (Half Moon Theatre), Leave Taking (Liverpool Playhouse Studio, National Theatre, Bush Theatre), Picture Palace (Women's Theatre Group), A Hero's Welcome (Women's Playhouse Trust at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs), A Rock in Water (Royal Court Young People's Theatre at the Theatre Upstairs), Talking in Tongues (Royal Court Theatre Upstairs), Mules (Clean Break Theatre Company) and One Under (Tricycle Theatre). Winsome has also written for radio and television. In 2018 she was awarded the prestigious Alfred Fagon Award.

Lockdown Theatre Festival was set up by Bertie Carvel as a positive, creative response to the coronavirus crisis, which has forced theatres all over the world to close, with no knowing when - or in some cases if - they will reopen. It captures in audio form some of the stage productions which had their performances unexpectedly cut short. Using innovative techniques, actors record “down the line” from isolation, linked with each other and with the director via video conferencing.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000k26b)
Peter Stanford

For more than 20 years, in more than 20 books, Peter Stanford has grappled with religious belief. Starting with a book called Catholics and Sex, he’s gone on to write the lives of Martin Luther and Cardinal Hume, and the biography of the campaigning Catholic Lord Longford; he’s published books about the devil, about heaven, and most recently – a fascinating book about angels. They’re works which mix history, theology, literature and art history – and some really honest and funny personal stories; because although he was brought up a Catholic, he says he’s the kind of church-goer who always wants to jump up and argue with the sermon.

In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Peter Stanford reflects on his Liverpool childhood, and the challenges his mother faced living with MS. He talks about his commitment to prison reform, and his belief in the importance of rehabilitation, even for those who have committed appalling crimes. And he reflects on why so many people believe in angels, even when they say they don’t believe in God or any organised religion. Peter has never seen an angel himself; but at the end of the programme he does tell an extraordinary story about being touched by the supernatural.

Music choices include Hildegard of Bingen, Jacqueline du Pre playing Bach, Mozart’s Exultate Jubilate, the political protest singer Harry Chapin, and Jennifer Johnston singing a song that resonates now: “You’ll Never Walk Alone”.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000k26l)
Dickens's World

Charles Dickens: tireless novelist, journalist, amateur theatricalist, traveller, socialiser, and liver of life. To mark the 150th anniversary of the death of this literary titan, actor Sam West reads from the letters Dickens sent to correspondents including other greats of the time like Mrs Gaskell and Wilkie Collins; close friends such as actor William Macready and artist Daniel Maclise; and his wife and children at home as he travelled extensively giving public readings to his thousands of adoring fans.

Including observations of his first trip to America at the height of slavery in 1842, reflections on the incumbent British government and the prevailing class system, his traumatic account of the 1865 Staplehurst Rail Crash, guidance for his youngest son on departing for Australia, and the story of hunting a ghost with a shot gun, which turned out to be a sheep.

With music by Haydn, Beethoven, Kathryn Tickell, The Divine Comedy, and Michael Nyman.

Producer: Ruth Thomson

You can find a Free Thinking episode broadcast on the 150th anniversary of Dickens' death on June 9th with Matthew Sweet discussing the writing of Dickens with Laurence Scott, Lucy Whitehead from Cardiff University and the novelist Linda Grant.

SUN 18:45 Between the Ears (b05283j4)
School for Harmonicas

Imagine a town of harmonica players; sounds a bit surreal?

Now 'Between the Ears' gives listeners a chance to hear the harmonica as a truly virtuoso instrument, always an instrument of the people - portable, affordable and playable. Acclaimed poet Kim Addonizio turns harmonica student, heading to blues school with pen, mouth, and a stack of harps at the ready, in search of the sweetest sounds.

Trossingen in Germany may be the world capital of harmonicas. Every street echoes to the sound of the harp, and even the downtown hotel is part of the old Hohner Factory. This is where you will find the true aficionados, the hard-core addicts, who come to have lessons with the top players.

Kim learns riffs from the world’s top ‘harp’ teachers, Dave Barrett, Steve Baker and Joe Filisko - who customizes harps for such as Neil Young, blues great Kim Wilson, and jazz phenomenon Howard Levy, and who she wants to persuade to accompany her on his magical harp.

She also dreams of being the first woman to jam on stage at the Blues conference... so will her dreams become reality?

Producer: Sara Jane Hall


SUN 19:15 The Essay (m00051k3)
From the Source

The Art of Zen Fly Fishing

For Feargal Sharkey the perfect cast is a lifelong obsession. It's the moment when man and river exist in perfect harmony. It's a passion he shares with generations of artists before him on the chalk streams of Hertfordshire. Dame Juliana Berners, Prioress of St Mary of Sopwell wrote one of the earliest books on the etiquette of hunting, hawking and fishing in the 14th century. Her work influenced Izaak Walton who opens The Compleat Angler with a vivid description of a walk from Tottenham to the waters that Feargal fishes today.

Growing up in Derry with the mountains and trout-rich rivers of Donegal on his doorstep, Feargal fished from childhood, but when the punk fame of The Undertones reached its peak he found himself in north London with only the Grand Union Canal for company. Discovering the chalk streams on the edge of the city brought fishing back into his life and since then he's dedicated himself to the preservation of these waters. England contains most of the world's chalk streams, perfect habitat for trout, waterfowl, otter and water vole, but abstraction for drinking water and pollution from farming and industry has pushed many of these rivers to the edge of destruction.

Feargal shares his determination to save the chalk streams with Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough and instructs her in the Zen art of fly fishing.

Producer: Alasdair Cross

Lockdown Theatre Festival: Love, Love, Love

By Mike Bartlett.
Love, Love, Love had just opened at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre when the theatres closed in March 2020. Lockdown Theatre Festival gives it a new lease of life on radio, using technological solutions to record the actors at home.

Mike Bartlett’s play charts one couple’s journey 40 years on from the era of free love to the beginning of the 21st century. Smoking, drinking, affectionate and paranoid, Kenneth and Sandra build their life and family together in a time of increasing national prosperity, when the future is always better than the past. Now they’re retired and their children grown, but why hasn’t it all worked out the way they thought? What happens when the children you think you’ve done everything for, believe you haven’t done enough?

Rose ..... Isabella Laughland

Mike Bartlett is a multi-award winning playwright and screenwriter. His play King Charles III won Critics Circle Award for Best New Play, Olivier Award for Best New Play and was nominated for a Tony Award for Best New Play. Love Love Love won Best New Play in the 2011 Theatre Awards UK, Cock won an Olivier Award in 2010 for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre, he won the Writer’s Guild Tinniswood and Imison prizes for Not Talking, and the Old Vic New Voices Award for Artefacts. His television series The Town was nominated for a Bafta for Breakthrough Talent. He won Outstanding Newcomer for British Television Writing at the British Screenwriters Awards 2016 for Doctor Foster.

Lockdown Theatre Festival was set up by Bertie Carvel as a positive, creative response to the coronavirus crisis, which has forced theatres all over the world to close, with no knowing when - or in some cases if - they will reopen. It captures in audio form some of the stage productions that had their performances unexpectedly cut short. Using innovative techniques, actors record “down the line” from isolation, linked with each other and with the director via video conferencing.


SUN 23:00 A Singer's World (m0009c6c)
Wanderer

Baritone Benjamin Appl dips a paw into the great honeypot of German lieder, French melodies and English art song. He finds music and lyrics which he matches in a very down-to-earth way to his everyday experience as a Lieder singer in the 21st century. In this programme, he talks about having to move to where the work is, the issue of gender in songs, our relationship with nature, learning repertoire, and dealing with the voice. Includes songs by Duparc, Strauss, Schubert, Barber, Gurney and Vaughan Williams. Features singers such as Brigitte Fassbaender, Bryn Terfel, Benjamin Luxon, Christoph Pregardien and Jessye Norman.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000k28l)
Beethoven Unleashed: Hero

Fallen Idol

Beethoven was fascinated by Napoleon Bonaparte and the ideals of freedom, equality and self-determination he seemed to embody, and embarked on a new symphony in Napoleon’s honour. But had he fatally misjudged his hero?

This week, Donald Macleod follows Ludwig van Beethoven through the years of 1804-1806; the beginning of what many commentators have called his ‘heroic’ phase. Having weathered a profound psychological crisis, triggered by his failing hearing, Beethoven now throws himself into his composing with renewed energy and strength of spirit. However, that same passionate nature also leads to frequent conflicts.

Composer of the Week is returning to the story of Beethoven’s life and music throughout 2020. Part of Radio 3’s Beethoven Unleashed season marking the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0000b4c)
Italy Outdoors

The Piazza

Much of life in Italy takes place in shared outdoor spaces. From business to social life, religion to politics, Italians have been conducting their affairs in public for two millennia and more. In the past months, all this came to an abrupt halt. A people famed for their evening passeggiata in the piazza, for their outdoor café culture, for their flamboyant appropriation of their town centres for public and private business, have been confined to their homes. As Italy takes its first steps back outside into its magnificent shared spaces, ‘Italy Outdoors’ takes us on a journey around the culture and history of what has always been an exuberantly public nation.

Beginning with the piazza, the beating heart of Italian identity, writer and reader Polly Coles suggests the space reflects a very Italian need to be together in public.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000k35d)
Beethoven Unleashed: Hero

Love and Honour

Beethoven rekindles an old relationship while working to dissuade his brother, Caspar Carl, from his own choice of romantic partner.

This week, Donald Macleod follows Ludwig van Beethoven through the years of 1804-1806; the beginning of what many commentators have called his ‘heroic’ phase. Beethoven had put behind him the profound psychological crisis, triggered by his failing hearing, and now throws himself into his composing with renewed energy and strength of spirit. However, that same passionate nature also leads to frequent conflicts.

Composer of the Week is returning to the story of Beethoven’s life and music throughout 2020. Part of Radio 3’s Beethoven Unleashed season marking the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.

Royal Northern Sinfonia: Mendelssohn and Schumann

Adam Tomlinson presents a concert of Mendelssohn, Schumann and Pärt given by Royal Northern Sinfonia, violinist Alina Ibragimova and conductor Clemens Schuldt from Sage Gateshead.

The influence of JS Bach reaches across the centuries in a programme that opens with his youngest son - and 'London's Bach' - Johann Christian. His symphonies are signature works of the eighteenth century, and No 6 is arguably his most unsettlingly dramatic; Johann Christian's influence upon the young Mozart is unmistakable. The beloved Lutheran hymn Ein' feste Burg is unser Gott (A mighty fortress is our God) informs the finale of Mendelssohn's 'Reformation' Symphony, a piece that JS Bach had worked into a cantata for the Augsburg bicentennial a century earlier. In between, Arvo Pärt's buzzing If Bach had been a beekeeper uses the musical notation of the letters BACH. And Alina Ibragimova performs Schumann's Violin Concerto in D minor, on the 80th anniversary of the work's UK premiere.

Antarctica: Testing Ground for the Human Species

Two hundred years ago, Antarctica was discovered by Russian explorers and throughout this year the the UK Antarctic Heritage Trust is marking that anniversary. As we approach the date in June which is celebrated as midwinter with a special meal on the research stations - here's a chance to hear Rana Mitter and guests discussing the lure of this polar region both in our imaginations and as an aid to understanding what is happening to the planet.

Rana Mitter's guests are:
writer Meredith Hooper, who has visited Antarctica under the auspices of three governments, Australia, UK and USA and is currently curating an exhibition about Shackleton and the Encyclopedia Britannica he took with him on Endurance.
Polar explorer Ben Saunders completed the longest human-powered polar exploration in history to the South Pole and back, retracing Captain Scott’s Terra Nova expedition.
Architect Hugh Broughton is the designer behind Halley VI, the UK's scientific base on the Brent Ice Shelf
Jonathan Bamber is one of the world's leading experts on ice and uses satellite technology to monitor the mass of Antarctica's ice sheets; his work is central to predictions of ice melt and rising sea levels. He is head of the Bristol Glaciology Centre.

Recorded in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of Ideas at Sage Gateshead in November 2014

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0000b6r)
Italy Outdoors

La Strada

Much of life in Italy takes place in shared outdoor spaces. From business to social life, religion to politics, Italians have been conducting their affairs in public for two millennia and more. In the past months, all this came to an abrupt halt. A people famed for their evening passeggiata in the piazza, for their outdoor café culture, for their flamboyant appropriation of their town centres for public and private business, have been confined to their homes. As Italy takes its first steps back outside into its magnificent shared spaces, ‘Italy Outdoors’ takes us on a journey around the culture and history of what has always been an exuberantly public nation.

Writer Polly Coles reads her second essay about Italy’s public spaces, La Strada (The Road): a place of exile, loss, transition and vision beyond the civilized confines of the city.

Beethoven had put behind him the profound psychological crisis, triggered by his failing hearing, and now throws himself into his composing with renewed energy and strength of spirit. However, that same passionate nature also leads to frequent conflicts.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0000bpk)
Italy Outdoors

The Garden

Much of life in Italy takes place in shared outdoor spaces. From business to social life, religion to politics, Italians have been conducting their affairs in public for two millennia and more. In the past months, all this came to an abrupt halt. A people famed for their evening passeggiata in the piazza, for their outdoor café culture, for their flamboyant appropriation of their town centres for public and private business, have been confined to their homes. As Italy takes its first steps back outside into its magnificent shared spaces, ‘Italy Outdoors’ takes us on a journey around the culture and history of what has always been an exuberantly public nation.

Writer Polly Coles discusses how the Italian garden has been a space of profound seclusion and privacy, and at other times the opposite: a place of display and worldly relations.

THU 23:30 Unclassified (m000k37s)
Darkstar

Elizabeth Alker with music that defies classification. Featuring brand new tracks and exclusive first plays plus music created by artists in quarantine.

In this episode, Elizabeth talks to genre-hopping sonic explorers and creators of electronic Northern Noir, Darkstar. The band introduce the radio premieres of brand new tracks from their fourth album 'Civic Jams' and discuss the themes and sounds on the record.

Darkstar are Aiden Walley and James Young. Their first album 'North' came out in 2010 and their unique brand of electronica has since seen them build a loyal and dedicated fan base, inspire a younger generation of electronic musicians and become increasingly popular amongst other experimental and trailblazing artists. Darkstar performed with the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Southbank for Radio 3's Unclassified Live in September 2019, they have worked on live dance performances with choreographer Holly Blakey and scored the Palme d'Or nominated short film ‘Dreamlands’. They have also worked with organist James McVinnie and the London Contemporary Orchestra for performances at the Organ Reframed festival and the PRS New Music Biennial.

Unclassified is a late-night listening party, a place for curious ears to congregate, disconnect from all other devices and get lost in some soothing, serene and strange new sounds. It's a home for composers whose work cannot easily be categorised, artists who are as comfortable in a grimy basement venue as they are in a prestigious concert hall.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000k3d6)
Beethoven Unleashed: Hero

Intimates and Evangelists

As Beethoven’s hearing continues to decline, he finds sympathetic musical friends who will help perform and disseminate his works.

This week, Donald Macleod follows Ludwig van Beethoven through the years of 1804-1806; the beginning of what many commentators have called his ‘heroic’ phase. Beethoven had put behind him the profound psychological crisis, triggered by his failing hearing, and now throws himself into his composing with renewed energy and strength of spirit. However, that same passionate nature also leads to frequent conflicts.

Composer of the Week is returning to the story of Beethoven’s life and music throughout 2020. Part of Radio 3’s Beethoven Unleashed season marking the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.

John Wilson at Aldeburgh

Recorded at Snape Maltings, June 2018

Presented by Kate Molleson

John Wilson conducts the BBC SSO in music by Britten, Copland and Bernstein from the 2018 Aldeburgh Festival with soloists Cedric Tiberghien and Robert Murray.

Britten: Sinfonia da requiem
Britten (arr. Matthews): Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo

8.10 Interval

8.30
Copland: Quiet City
Bernstein: Symphony No 2 'The Age of Anxiety'

Another chance to hear a concert originally broadcast live in June 2018. The Glasgow-based BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra with their Associate Guest Conductor John Wilson, perform music of love and angst by festival founder Benjamin Britten and two 20th century Americans: Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein.

The 2018 Aldeburgh Festival reflected Britten's wartime experiences in America, and in this concert alongside his often-heard Sinfonia da Requiem the orchestra are joined by tenor Robert Murray to perform a new orchestration of Britten's Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo: love songs written during his self-imposed exile in America in the 1940s.

In the second half of the concert Copland's Quiet City preludes the complicatedly structured Second Symphony by Leonard Bernstein: one of many opportunities to hear his music in his anniversary year. Taking inspiration from the poems of W.H. Auden Bernstein creates a serious-minded symphony with the piano at its centre: a role originated by the composer himself, and taken this evening by Cedric Tiberghien.

Italy Outdoors

The Church

Much of life in Italy takes place in shared outdoor spaces. From business to social life, religion to politics, Italians have been conducting their affairs in public for two millennia and more. In the past months, all this came to an abrupt halt. A people famed for their evening passeggiata in the piazza, for their outdoor café culture, for their flamboyant appropriation of their town centres for public and private business, have been confined to their homes. As Italy takes its first steps back outside into its magnificent shared spaces, ‘Italy Outdoors’ takes us on a journey around the culture and history of what has always been an exuberantly public nation.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000k3dn)
Lea Bertucci’s mixtape

Jennifer Lucy Allan presents a 30-minute mixtape compiled by the New York-based sound artist, musician and composer Lea Bertucci. Bertucci is an electro-acoustic minimalist who has a distinctive relationship with the acoustics. She has a background working with woodwind, primarily the alto saxophone and bass clarinet, but treats the space around her as a collaborator in its own right, recording in defunct cement mines, under bridges and in military bunkers. For this mix she delves into her archives to select field recordings, medieval song, spectralism and free jazz, glued together with excerpts of recordings she has made in locations over the years.

Also on the menu: pulled-apart post-punk by London trio Mosquitoes; new compositions for gamelan by Indonesian composer Dewa Alit; a slug of psychedelia from 1960s Sweden by Pärson Sound; and an early piece by the iconic Diamanda Galas.

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