SAT 12:30 This Classical Life (m000kwjh)
Jess Gillam with... Lotte Betts-Dean

Jess Gillam meets with London based Australian mezzo-soprano Lotte Betts-Dean for virtual lockdown listening party, in which they are raving to Rachmaninov, marvelling over the voices of Cape Verde’s barefoot diva and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, whilst also enjoying the other worldly dream pop of Cocteau Twins and Mahler’s humongous ‘Symphony of a Thousand’.

Playlist:
Rachmaninov - Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (Nikolai Lugansky, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Sakari Oramo)
Cesária Évora – Sodade
Louis Andriessen - M is for Man, Music, Mozart: Einstein song
Schubert – String Quintet in C Major, D.956; I. Allegro ma non toppo (Alban Berg Quartett, Heinrich Schiff)

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000kwjk)
Violinist Thomas Gould with spine-tingling sounds

Violinist Thomas Gould brings his many experiences as a soloist, chamber player and orchestral member to his choices today. He thinks about the limitless ways a singer like Renée Fleming can inflect a single note, and enjoys the powerful emotional effect created by Barbra Streisand as she chooses when, and more importantly when not, to use vibrato.

There’s also riotous energy from composers Gyorgy Ligeti and Camille Saint-Saëns, and Thomas reveals his ‘wake up’ moment in Handel’s Messiah (it’s not the Hallelujah chorus).

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m000kwjt)
Monteverdi - L'Orfeo

Tonight's Opera on 3 is a work crucial to the development of opera as we know it today - Monteverdi's L'Orfeo. Based on the Greek legend of Orpheus, the opera tells of his descent to Hades and his fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. Monteverdi brings the story to live with new techniques - harmonic twists and structural devices that bind the narrative together. Danish conductor and baroque expert Lars Ulrik Mortensen teams up with Concerto Copenhagen for Royal Danish Opera's sparklingly vivid interpretation of Monteverdi’s unique and immortal music.

Martin Handley presents, with contributions from Dr Flora Willson, music lecturer at King's College London.

SUNDAY 12 JULY 2020

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m000kwjy)
Hopeful noise

Tender, melancholic and hopeful sounds from a Greek trio called TUSK who make short nostalgic pieces that draw on psychedelia, noise and electronic music. We'll also hear more music from the American composer George Lewis as recorded at Bergen's experimental music festival Borealis, following the first instalment from that concert in the New Music Show.

The long-running Italian band Anatrofobia return with a new release of spacious, textural interplay and a new member, the vocalist Cristina Trotto Gatta. They’ve been described by the critic Nazim Comunale as "too cultured and cerebral for jazzcore, too punk for academic circles, too quiet for lovers of the more physical free, too intelligent for those who believe that a saxophone means necessarily jazz."

Sarah Walker with an inviting musical mix

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning.

Sarah starts the morning with a fresh and energising piano prelude by Debussy, and is equally invigorated by violinist Janine Jansen playing Tchaikovsky. She also finds peace in the voice of Norma Winstone, and candlelit intimacy with the vocal group Amarcord.

Plus the wonders of multitracking with the five hands of Alexandre Tharaud playing Couperin, and something to get you in the mood for Sunday afternoon.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0000kdn)
Bel Mooney

Bel Mooney describes her pleasures as: watching for kingfishers, riding pillion on a motorbike, and dancing to a 1962 Wurlitzer. That entertaining list reflects something of her enjoyment of a life which has brought many challenges as well as pleasures. Bel Mooney started out as a writer almost 50 years ago, and in 1976 was one of the first journalists to speak from personal experience about the terrible loss of having a stillborn baby; that article led to the founding of the first national stillbirth society. She’s a novelist, children’s writer and broadcaster, and the advice columnist for the Daily Mail, a job she says is more worthwhile than any other she’s done.

In Private Passions, Bel Mooney talks very openly about the ups and downs of a life which has brought about many transformations, about how her stillbirth changed her, and about finding happiness again after the ending of her marriage to Jonathan Dimbleby. Music plays a central role, and her choices include sacred music by Mozart and Pergolesi, Beethoven’s String Quartet in F major, Nigel Kennedy playing unaccompanied Bach, and jazz poetry from Christopher Logue.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000kwlw)
Going Slow

Listening to slow music, composing slow music and playing slow music - what happens when our music goes slow? Tom Service asks if going slow means making a chilled out, super-relaxed, concentration-free zone or if slow music is more focused, more intense, more dramatic, more emotionally and intellectually compelling than music that goes fast. This week's witnesses helping him find the answers are composer Thomas Ades and novelist AL Kennedy.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000kwly)
Looking Back on Childhood

Poets and writers reflect on their childhoods. With readings by Rebecca Lacey and Abraham Popoola.

What was it like to be a child? What was expected, and what did we wish for? What experiences in the present prompt us to remember? This episode of Words and Music explores how it feels to look back on different stages of childhood.

In a Louis MacNeice poem, the smell of a particular brand of soap is enough to inspire a flood of involuntary memories; while Jackie Kay is watching on the shore as the girl she was walks “out to sea [...] further and further away.” There is part of the poet Alice Oswald that has not yet left her childhood hiding place, inside a laurel bush “in Berkshire somewhere.” Jan Morris’s memoir reflects on how it felt to be “born into the wrong body.”

Youth was a wandered-through, clambered-over landscape for the nature poet Wordsworth; for Adrienne Rich, childhood was a time when knowledge was “pure”, even “pleasurable”, contained in encyclopedias, lacking the contradictions and complications of the adult world. Seamus Heaney invokes the imaginative play of siblings at home whose sofa is transformed into a train. Driving in his car listening to Sly and the Family Stone, the poet A. Van Jordan is pulled over by the police. The encounter prompts a lyrical meditation on music, manhood and racism. The music in this episode comes from Charles Ives, Georges Bizet and Stevie Wonder.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000kwm0)
Silent Witness - John Cage, Zen and Japan

John Cage is arguably the most important composer of the 20th century, even though he's perhaps famous, or infamous depending on your point of view, for writing a piece of music that is 4'33" of silence.

Famous because it made his reputation - after all composers write music not silence – and infamous because not unsurprisingly, it's outraged, perplexed and fascinated audiences since its premiere in 1952.

Cage though was deadly serious about his silent piece, and Robert Worby goes on an odyssey to find out what Cage thought silence was, and why silence was central to his life and work.

Robert goes to the quietest place in the UK - so quiet you can't hear a pin drop - to experience what John Cage did, when he entered an anechoic chamber in the 50s in search of silence.

But it's not as straightforward as you might think, as Robert discovers Cage didn't find the silence he was seeking, and instead found something even more surprising.

The key to understanding 4’33”, and Cage’s fascination with silence, is his interest in the discipline of Zen Buddhism, which unlocked a whole new world of hearing sound that he charted through chance operations.

It led to a meeting of like minds when Cage met Yoko Ono in New York who instantly saw the Zen influence on his work. In 1962 Ono and her husband, Toshi Ichiyanagi, invited Cage to visit Japan - his Zen spiritual homeland - a trip that later became known as the ‘Cage Shock’. It was a turning point in his career whose ground breaking performances sealed his reputation as the most controversial and experimental composer in the world.

The programme features two UK premieres on Radio 3, an interview Robert recorded with John Cage when he met the composer in NYC in the 80s after finding his number in the phone book, and Cage reading his Lecture on Nothing, his enigmatic musing on silence.

Produced by Andrew Carter - A BBC Radio Cumbria Production.

Beethoven Unleashed: Restless Spirit

Frustrated Ambitions

Beethoven is seeking financial stability in Vienna and making further attempts to find love. However, nothing goes quite to plan.

This was a period that ended with the traumatic second occupation of Vienna by Napoleon’s forces, and a time when Beethoven himself was feeling increasingly restless in the city after his plans to gain financial stability were thwarted.

At Home with Fatoumata Diawara

With summer touring schedules on hold and festivals cancelled, musicians continue to look to their own four walls for inspiration. How are they coping without live audiences? And is this period of restricted movement, stifling or stirring creativity? From her garage studio in Wiltshire, Verity Sharp is dialling up musicians around the UK and beyond who are rooted in global traditions, exercising their home-recording skills, and asking them to share songs that reflect how they are feeling. In this episode, Fatoumata Diawara is inspired to share the first song she ever wrote and to talk about the early life experiences that shaped her music.

Presented and produced by Verity Sharp.

Beethoven Unleashed: Restless Spirit

Moving Homes

It is estimated that Beethoven lived in between 60 and 80 different houses in Vienna, In Tuesday’s programme, Donald Macleod explores these various house moves, asking whether they might be a symptom of his dissatisfaction with the city he had come to call home.

This week, Donald explores Ludwig van Beethoven’s life through the years 1807-1809. This was a period that ended with the traumatic second occupation of Vienna by Napoleon’s forces, and a time when Beethoven himself was feeling increasingly restless in the city after his plans to gain financial stability were thwarted.

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.

The BBC Singers in Poulenc's Figure humaine

The BBC Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Singers. Penny Gore presents recent performances by two of the world's most versatile performing groups. Today, the BBC Singers mark the 75th anniversary of their premiering of Poulenc's wartime 'Figure humaine.' This moving tribute to the human spirit sets poems by Paul Éluard secretly circulated during the Occupation. In this performance, the singers are joined by Misha Mullov-Abbado and his trio who improvise sensitively between the movements of Poulenc's masterpiece. Also today, Joseph Horovitz's classic 'Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo' and Vaughan Williams from the BBC Symphony Orchestra. And, to mark the centenary this year of Bernd Alois Zimmerman, star-trumpeter and recent Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Simon Höfele plays his Trumpet Concerto “Nobody knows de trouble I see.” Written in 1954 he said at the time that the use of the spiritual as passed down through the generations was inspired by "the struggle of people of colour in the USA to achieve equality and overcome endemic racial discrimination."

Folk at Home

At Home with Chris Wood

With summer touring schedules on hold and festivals cancelled, musicians continue to look to their own four walls for inspiration. How are they coping without live audiences? And is this period of restricted movement stifling or stirring creativity? From her garage studio in Wiltshire, Verity Sharp is dialling up musicians who are rooted in global traditions, exercising their home-recording skills, and asking them to share songs that reflect how they are feeling. In this episode, Chris Wood finds solace in poetry of John Clare and is inspired by the family sofa.

Presented and produced by Verity Sharp.

Kalenda Maya: Folias and Dances from Palace and Desert

East meets West in this colourful evocation of medieval music from all around the Mediterranean. In the 12th and 13th centuries, Spain was a melting pot, where Christian, Jewish and Islamic cultures co-existed, where Provençal troubadours and Arabic musicians could meet and exchange ideas. Manuscripts associated with the Castilian court of Alfonso X ''the Wise'' show illustrations of musicians playing instruments that look remarkably similar to those still played in North Africa, the Middle East and around the Adriatic today, and this has inspired Jordi Savall to gather together a group of musicians from east and west to recreate the lost sounds of medieval Spain, Provence and Italy in the context of traditional music from Armenia, Persia and Turkey.

And is this period of restricted movement, stifling or stirring creativity? From her garage studio in Wiltshire, Verity Sharp is dialling up musicians who are rooted in global traditions, exercising their home-recording skills, and asking them to share songs that reflect how they are feeling. In this episode, Lisa O’Neill shares two new songs she’s written since the start of the pandemic and talks about how her priorities in life have changed.

Presented and produced by Verity Sharp.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.

Beethoven Unleashed: Restless Spirit

Settling Down

Donald Macleod finds Beethoven seemingly ready to settle down as he is awarded the benefit concert he so badly wanted, but a new job offer means he had a choice to make. Will he stay in Vienna or go somewhere else entirely?

This week, Donald explores Ludwig van Beethoven’s life through the years 1807-1809. This was a period that ended with the traumatic second occupation of Vienna by Napoleon’s forces, and a time when Beethoven himself was feeling increasingly restless in the city after his plans to gain financial stability were thwarted.

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.

The exhibition now runs until August 23rd.

Proms Preview

First Night of the BBC Proms 2020

Tonight sees the launch of six weeks of highlights from the past three decades of the Proms, featuring memorable performances from an array of the world’s greatest soloists, orchestras and conductors.

Marking the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, we open with a mash-up of Beethoven’s nine symphonies – a First Night commission by Iain Farrington recorded in lockdown by a Grand Virtual Orchestra formed of around 320 players from across the BBC Performing Groups. The Beethoven celebrations continue with the dramatic Piano Concerto No. 3 performed at the 2017 First Night by Igor Levit, who has more recently reached a new audience through his live Twitter concerts streamed direct from his Berlin apartment during the coronavirus lockdown.
Sir Harrison Birtwistle’s riotous, hard-hitting Panic – for saxophone, drums and orchestra – won instant notoriety following its premiere at the Last Night of the 100th-anniversary Proms season in 1995.
Tonight’s selection concludes with Claudio Abbado’s final Proms appearance, in 2007, conducting the 127 players of his Lucerne Festival Orchestra in a rapturous performance of Mahler’s epic hymn to nature, his Third Symphony.

Folk at Home

At Home with Eliza Carthy

With summer touring schedules on hold and festivals cancelled, songwriters continue to look to their own four walls for inspiration. How are they coping without live audiences? And is this period of restricted movement, stifling or stirring creativity? From her garage studio in Wiltshire, Verity Sharp is dialling up musicians who are rooted in global traditions, exercising their home-recording skills, and asking them to share songs that reflect how they are feeling. In this episode, from her home in Robin Hood’s Bay in North Yorkshire, Eliza Carthy sings a timely song.

Presented and produced by Verity Sharp.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000kx6k)
Limpe Fuchs’s mixtape

Verity Sharp presents a 30-minute mixtape compiled by the legendary musician and artist Limpe Fuchs. Her selections include R Carlos Nakai, Klaus Nomi, and Staff Benda Bilili.

Across a 40-year career Limpe Fuchs has pioneered a “no formalism” sound and visual performance style, improvising with handmade instruments and sonic sculptures. She has been cited as a key influence on the West German experimental rock scene of the 70s, and later the psychedelic underground of the 80s.

Also tonight, a chance to hear another improvisation recorded during a recent collaboration session between percussionist Sarathy Korwar and cellist Abel Selaocoe.

Produced by Jack Howson.
