SAT 11:45 New Generation Artists (m000l285)
James Newby and Alexander Gadjiev

New Generation Artists: Kate Molleson begins her Saturday summer series showcasing the current members of Radio 3's prestigious young artists' scheme.

In this first programme, James Newby celebrates 'Nature's Beauty' at the Oxford Lieder Festival. Also today, Alexander Gadjiev plays Beethoven's 'Waldstein' sonata - the third movement of which has been likened to a beautiful sunrise - and the touching Andante favori, originally intended as the sonata's second movement. This gracious miniature touched many hearts in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice as Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy exchanged tender glances. Beethoven himself often played this piece in Viennese society circles, hence the title, 'favourite Andante.'

Beethoven: Andante favori in F, WoO 57
Beethoven: Piano Sonata in C major, Op. 53 'Waldstein'
Alexander Gadjiev (piano)

Fauré: Le Papillon et La Fleur (2 Songs, Op.1 - No.1)
Chausson: Le Colibri (7 Songs, Op.2 - No.7)
Rachmaninov: My child you are as beautiful as a flower (6 Songs Op.8 - No.2)
James Newby (baritone), Simon Lepper (piano)

Established two decades ago, Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme is internationally acknowledged as the foremost scheme of its kind. It exists to offer a platform for artists at the beginning of their international careers. Each year six musicians join the scheme for two years, during which time they appear at the UK's major music festivals, enjoy dates with the BBC orchestras and have the opportunity to record in the BBC studios. The artists are also encouraged to form artistic partnerships with one another and to explore a wide range of repertoire, not least the work of contemporary and women composers. In recent years Radio 3's New Generation Artists have appeared at many of the UK's music festivals and concert halls. The BBC New Generation Artists Scheme is not itself a prize, rather it offers a unique two year platform on which artists can develop their prodigious talents. Not surprisingly, the list of alumni reads like a Who’s Who of the most exciting musicians of the past two decades.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000l287)
Cellist Natalie Clein - musical motion and oceanic stillness

Natalie Clein is a world-renowned cellist whose musical explorations have led her to work with composers, dancers and writers.

Today, from her living room in Berlin, Natalie starts where her career began - with Bach’s cello suites. She then finds personal relevance in Steve Reich’s looping melodies, before enjoying some sumptuous violin playing from Anne-Sophie Mutter.

She also muses on how a simple transition from one note to the next can make you feel as if you’re sinking into the depths of an ocean, and reveals how a simple fairy tale by Prokofiev may be concealing a more profound statement of longing.

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

Christian Thielemann conducts the Staatskapelle Dresden

Presented by Kate Molleson

The Staatskapelle Dresden and its Chief Conductor Christian Thielemann open with Beethoven’s most radiant, smiling work, his sublime Violin Concerto, in the sure hands of Nikolaj Znaider.

After the interval this famously rich-toned orchestra digs into Max Reger’s affectionate and beautifully orchestrated Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Mozart and finally Richard Strauss’s witty and abrasive depiction of an impish figure from German folklore, his outlandish tone-poem telling of ‘Till Eulenspiegel’s merry pranks’.

Carla Bley in concert

Julian Joseph presents live music from American piano great Carla Bley and her trio with Steve Swallow on bass and Andy Sheppard on saxophones recorded at the 2019 Stockholm Jazz Festival. Bley has been a pivotal figure in free jazz since the 1960s when she worked with Don Cherry, Charlie Haden and many more and recorded her celebrated jazz opera, Escalator Over The Hill. Now in her 80s she’s still a prolific performer. Her latest trio album, Life Goes On, is playful, lyrical and steeped in the blues.

Also in the programme, manager, promoter, record producer and historian Maxine Gordon shares music and memories from her life in jazz, including a track by her late husband, saxophone great Dexter Gordon.

Produced by Thomas Rees for Somethin’ Else.

Beethoven's Leonore - a landmark performance

Beethoven: Leonore
(From BBC Proms 1996, 16 August)
Beethoven’s only opera is a passionate musical protest against political oppression that also celebrates the power of human love. This performance from 1996 of the opera’s first version (it was later revised as Fidelio) was only its second ever at the Proms, and the first featuring period instruments. Sir John Eliot Gardiner favoured this earlier version of the work, conceived at a time when Beethoven was fired up by the ideals of Napoleon and the social fragmentation of society in the wake of the French Revolution. This performance came soon after the experience of recording all of Beethoven's symphonies with his Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique. The period instruments, he said, gave the music ‘greater transparency of texture, more sharply differentiated character of the instruments and an almost visceral struggle with the musical material.'

Presented by Martin Handley.

Stockhausen's Cosmic Pulses

Tom Service presents the latest sounds in new music ranging tonight from music for a single clarinet to the exigencies of the modern symphony and electronics as heard at last October's Donaueschingen Music Days. And, in 'Proms Premieres,' Tom revisits the unforgettable night in 2008 when Karl Heinz Stockhausen's Cosmic Pulses left the Proms audience gasping and bewildered. One critic wrote: "As rumbling and splintering noises ricocheted around the Albert Hall, it felt as if Stockhausen had dropped a microphone into deepest space."

SUN 12:00 The Future of the Past - Early Music Today (m0009zpz)
Pioneers of the future

Nicholas Kenyon tells the story of classical music’s greatest revolution.

Fifty years ago a revolution began in classical music. Back then, there was little doubt how to play a Mozart symphony or a Bach passion – it meant big symphonic forces, heavy textures, slow speeds and modern instruments. But then along came period performance: a new generation of musicians researched and revived period instruments, performance styles and forgotten composers. With lighter forces, faster speeds and new tools, they declared war on the interventionist musical culture of the mid-19th century. To start with, they were largely dismissed as eccentrics - Neville Marriner called them "the open-toed-sandals and brown-bread set” – and academics unable to play in tune. But throughout the 1970s and 80s they multiplied and gathered force. Along with the advent of the CD, their newfound repertory and fascinating new-old sound gave a boost to the classical recording industry. They overturned the way classical music was listened to and performed, making household names of musicians whose scholarly credentials became almost as important as their performing flair.

Nicholas Kenyon tells the story of that revolution, from the earliest pioneers to the global superstars of today. Across the series, he’ll uncover the musical detective-work which went on in universities and rehearsal rooms, reliving the incredible vitality of the times through landmark recordings which took the musical world by storm.

In today’s episode, Nicholas digs into where this historical impulse came from. Reviving the music of the past has long been part of the narrative for composers and certain connoisseurs, but the idea of ‘clothing music in its own fur and feathers’ really became public after the war. We’ll hear about the first stirrings of the movement, and the iconic soloists, ensembles and innovators that made it happen. Why did we want to reimagine the past?

Proms Chamber Music: Jeremy Denk

In 2020, BBC Radio 3 is bringing together musical greats, from the past and the present, in one extraordinary Proms season. Radio 3 is broadcasting the best of four decades of unmissable Proms concerts.

Bartók: Piano Sonata
Scriabin: Piano Sonata No. 9, 'Black Mass’
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111

Jeremy Denk (piano)

(From BBC Proms 2015, 24 August)

Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists – a musician the New York Times hails as someone ‘you want to hear no matter what he performs’. In 2015 he put Beethoven’s final piano sonata at the core of his debut Proms recital. This majestic work – which he later recorded for a 2019 disc entitled ‘c.1300–c.2000’ – blends extrovert passion with a depth that characterises all of the composer’s late works.

Denk paired the Beethoven with Bartók’s only piano sonata – a piece strongly coloured by Hungarian folk melodies and rhythmic attack – and Scriabin’s ‘Black Mass’ Piano Sonata. His most famous work in the genre, Scriabin’s sonata is a disconcerting, phantasmagoric musical journey – and a gleeful vision of horror.

SUN 17:00 Words and Music (m000l1yh)
The Power of Music

As the 2020 BBC Proms gets under way Words and Music explores The Power of Music in a special programme featuring recordings by all the BBC-affiliated performing groups. Readers Clarke Peters and Maggie Service read poetry and prose exploring the unique place music has in our lives, from the 'thousand twangling instruments' which magically fill the air in Shakespeare's The Tempest, to the 'mute glorious Storyvilles' that Philip Larkin imagines when he hears Sidney Bechet play. We'll feel the jealousy and awe that Mozart inspired in Salieri in Peter Schaffer's Amadeus, and the erotic urgency of Langston Hughes' Harlem Night Club. In this special edition of Words and Music the BBC orchestras play a starring role. There are special remote recordings from members of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic and BBC Singers, and Rachel Weld, a viola player from the BBC Philharmonic, has recorded a series of postcards reflecting on life as an orchestral musician, and what the enforced distance from her fellow players has been like during lockdown.

All the music in this special edition is recorded by BBC performing groups and affiliated orchestras and ranges from the BBC Philharmonic playing Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales playing Shostakovich, to the BBC Symphony Orchestra playing with Lianne La Havas. There's also Britten played in a special remote recording by BBC Symphony Orchestra harpist Louise Martin, Haydn from a BBC Philharmonic Orchestra quartet and Cole Porter's Night and Day sung by members of The BBC Singers.

Starting a series of six weekly programmes, Georgia Mann explores the coming week's Proms together with a group of guests, including Nicholas Kenyon, Managing Director of the Barbican Centre; Gillian Moore, Director of Music at Southbank Centre, and Helen Wallace, Artistic Director at Kings Place. As Radio 3 opens its rich archives during the summer, the guests offer tips, recommendations and rediscoveries in a unique chance to hear some historic and memorable recordings. The most significant people and events coming up in the week ahead are put under a spotlight, and the guests react to both archive interviews and fresh material recorded especially for the programme.


SUN 19:00 The Listening Service (m000dj3x)
Beethoven Unleashed: Getting to grips with Beethoven

Beethoven: deaf for most of his life, unbearable egotist, flagrant opportunist and musical anarchist whose music reaches the heights of ecstasy. Where do you start with this bundle of contradictions, probably the most admired composer in western music, whose works have unfailingly filled concert halls for over 200 years? Tom Service goes in search of what makes Beethoven Beethoven and suggests a few key pieces to help unlock the man and his music.

Beethoven’s Missa solemnis

Presented by Tom Service

Finding the terror alongside the spiritual awe, the questioning doubt as well as the faith, Beethoven’s mighty Missa solemnis is a work of visceral power – a public statement of intensely private belief. ‘From the heart – may it return to the heart!,’ the composer wrote at the top of a score that stretched the proportions and ambitions of the orchestral Mass to new limits.

A work close to Harnoncourt’s heart, the Missa solemnis was also the work he conducted in his final public performance before retiring in December 2015. Experience the raw intensity of his account here with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Arnold Schoenberg Choir at the 1998 BBC Proms.

MON 00:00 Classical Fix (m000l1yr)
Nadine Shah

Guest presenter Jules Buckley stands in for Clemmie Burton-Hill in a brand new four-part series of Classical fix, mixing bespoke classical playlists for music-loving special guests. In the first episode, Jules is joined by Mercury-nominated singer and musician Nadine Shah, whose highly-acclaimed new album 'Kitchen Sink' explores her own experience of life as a 30-something woman. Also featuring later in the series is musician and Savages singer, Jehnny Beth.

Classical Fix is a podcast aimed at opening up the world of classical music to anyone who fancies giving it a go. Jules Buckley is a Grammy-winning conductor, arranger and composer who pushes the boundaries of almost all musical genres by placing them in an orchestral context, and has earned himself a reputation as a 'pioneering genre alchemist' and' agitator of musical convention'. He leads two of the world’s most versatile and in-demand orchestras - the Heritage Orchestra and the Metropole Orkest - and over the past nine years he has been responsible for some of the most groundbreaking BBC Proms, including the Ibiza Prom, 1Xtra's Grime Symphony, The Songs of Scott Walker, Jacob Collier and Friends, and tributes to Quincy Jones, Nina Simone and Charles Mingus.

JS Bach (1685-1750)

Bach and the Organ

Donald Macleod journeys through Bach’s early career as an organist, which took him from Eisenach to Weimar.

Johann Sebastian Bach is often acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of all time and yet, during his lifetime, he was often more famous as an organist. Bach became very much in demand as a performer and a teacher. He was often asked to advise on the design and renovation of expensive church instruments. He composed a great deal of music for organ and was particularly productive during his twenties and early thirties when working at the court in Weimar. All this week Donald Macleod examines Bach’s life and music through the lens of his life-long fascination with the organ, focusing particularly on his time in Weimar and exploring his role as performer organist, teacher, servant, entrepreneur and composer.

In this first programme Donald Macleod takes us from Bach's first childhood encounters with the organ, through to his move to Weimar and a visit to Dresden where he was asked to take part in a musical play-off against the French keyboard player Louis Marchand, a musical competition that had a surprising result.

Proms Chamber Music: Apollon Musagète Quartet

In 2020, BBC Radio 3 is bringing together musical greats, from the past and the present, in one extraordinary Proms season. Radio 3 is broadcasting the best of four decades of unmissable Proms concerts.

Webern: Langsamer Satz
Colin Matthews: String Quartet No. 5 (European premiere)
Beethoven: String Quartet in D major, Op. 18 No. 3

Apollon Musagète Quartet

(From BBC Proms 2015, 3 August)

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Apollon Musagète Quartet present the European premiere of the Fifth String Quartet by one of Britain’s foremost living composers, Colin Matthews. Commissioned for the 75th anniversary of the Tanglewood Festival in 2015, the piece remains the last work Matthews has written in the medium.

Bookending the Quartet are Webern’s youthful Langsamer Satz – an ecstatic piece that showcases the composer’s formal skill within a lyrical idiom – and Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 18 No. 3. Of Beethoven’s six Op. 18 quartets, No. 3 is both the lightest and the hardest to pin down: the scherzo is fleeting, and even the framing movements have an unusual delicacy and wistfulness about them.

Leif Ove Andsnes plays Beethoven

In 2020, BBC Radio 3 is bringing together musical greats, from the past and the present, in one extraordinary Proms season. Radio 3 is broadcasting the best of four decades of unmissable Proms concerts.

This evening we've another chance to hear a Prom from 2015 - Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra present Beethoven’s Second and Fifth piano concertos – the composer’s first and final experiments in the genre. In No 2, a spacious and gentle central adagio is framed with Mozartean grace in the outer movements, while the Fifth is the composer’s last word on the subject – a musical emancipation of the soloist that anticipates the Romantic concertos of Beethoven’s successors.

Opening tonight’s concert is Stravinsky’s Octet, written for wind ensemble. Looking to the musical past for inspiration once again, Stravinsky’s Neo-classical masterpiece pastiches the forms and textures of the 18th century, colouring them with a mood and mischief all his own.

Presented by Andrew McGregor, who chats to Leif Ove between the two piano concertos.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000l22l)
JS Bach (1685-1750)

Bach the Servant

Donald Macleod explores Bach’s role as an employee of the court in Weimar.

Johann Sebastian Bach is often acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of all time and yet, during his lifetime, he was often more famous as an organist. Bach became very much in demand as a performer and a teacher. He was often asked to advise on the design and renovation of expensive church instruments. He composed a great deal of music for organ and was particularly productive during his twenties and early thirties when working at the court in Weimar. All this week Donald Macleod examines Bach’s life and music through the lens of his life-long fascination with the organ, and focusing particularly on his time in Weimar and exploring his role as performer organist, teacher, servant, entrepreneur and composer.

Bach spent much of his early career in service to local aristocrats around central Germany. Musicians were regarded as servants and during Bach’s teens, when he was briefly employed at Weimar, the court accounts describe him as a 'lackey'. Bach returned to Weimar in 1708, as organist to the elder Duke of Saxe-Weimar. There, he spent much time in the Court Chapel, also known as the 'Himmelsburg' or 'Heaven’s Castle', wrestling with the unsatisfactory positioning of the organ relative to the choir. Bach was evidently valued by his employer and promoted to the position of Concertmaster, which gave him more opportunities to compose cantatas. However, Bach increasingly found himself caught in the middle of court disagreements.

The world premiere of John Tavener's 20th-century classic, The Protecting Veil

In 2020, BBC Radio 3 is bringing together musical greats, from the past and the present, in one extraordinary Proms season. Radio 3 is broadcasting the best of four decades of unmissable Proms concerts.

Kate Molleson introduces a Prom from 1989 conducted by the late Oliver Knussen, one of the most respected figures in British contemporary music. She is also joined by the soloist in tonight's concert, cellist Steven Isserlis.

Knussen composed his Flourish with Fireworks for American conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, to reflect a shared admiration for the music of Stravinsky, here represented in the symphonic poem he made in 1917 from his opera The Nightingale. Song of the Nightingale later became a successful ballet, with choreography by Massine and later Balanchine.

Also premiered were two other works by British composers: the Symphony by Minna Keal; and John Tavener’s The Protecting Veil for cello and orchestra, a radiant expression of Tavener’s faith which, in his own words, attempted to ‘capture some of the almost cosmic power of the Mother of God’. Commissioned by the BBC, it has since become a contemporary classic, having received over a dozen recordings.

Knussen: Flourish with Fireworks
Debussy: Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
Keal: Symphony, Op. 3 (first concert performance of complete work)
Tavener: The Protecting Veil (world premiere)
Mussorgsky: Intermezzo in modo classico (orchestral version)
Stravinsky: Song of the Nightingale

Tonight's Proms broadcast includes The Protecting Veil, which earnt Tavener a nomination for the Mercury Prize and whilst this work takes its cue from an icon and the Orthodox feast of the Protecting Veil of the Mother of God, other pieces by Tavener draw on literary sources.

Originally recorded before an audience at the Royal College of Music at the BBC Proms on 23 July 2014.

The presenter is New Generation Thinker Lucy Powell who researches birds in British 18th-century literature. Tonight's Proms concert broadcast ends with a performance of Stravinsky's Song of the Nightingale.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0b941th)
The Meaning of Beaches

Dover Beach

A further series of essays by Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much-praised The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five British beaches, all of which are unique and quintessentially British in very different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these five beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery which has captured so much attention for her previous five series of essays.

Dover beach symbolises Brexit, war, resistance, fortitude, commerce, smuggling, desperation and racism. A beach steeped in British history and meaning, yet Calais is visible across the Strait of Dover, the narrowest part of the English Channel, attracting centuries of channel swimmers, with ferries and cargo ships bustling in and out by the white cliffs. Dover beach is shingle with the medieval Dover Castle overlooking it. It's now a popular spot with tourists with a promenade, deckchairs and kiosks but it's not your average tourist who comes to Dover beach. It receives a much higher percentage of Brexit voters, Churchill devotees and fossil-hunters than an average British beach. Its former incarnations as hotbeds of smuggling, of goods, contraband and people have echoes of the modern realities facing this beach which is at the forefront of the UK's future. It is the inspiration for one of the UK's favourite poems, "Dover Beach" by Matthew Arnold, a really pertinent poem for Britain today.

Bach the Entrepreneur

Donald Macleod explores Bach through the window of his business dealings.

Johann Sebastian Bach is often acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of all time and yet, during his lifetime, he was often more famous as an organist. Bach became very much in demand as a performer and a teacher. He was often asked to advise on the design and renovation of expensive church instruments. He composed a great deal of music for organ and was particularly productive during his twenties and early thirties when working at the court in Weimar. All this week Donald Macleod examines Bach’s life and music through the lens of his life-long fascination with the organ, focusing particularly on his time in Weimar and exploring his role as performer organist, teacher, servant, entrepreneur and composer

Much of what we know about Bach's early career has been preserved in the accounts and contracts written at the institutions where he worked. In this programme Donald Macleod explores what these sources can tell us about Bach and the world of business. Bach had already demonstrated his ambitious and determined nature from an early age; aged 20, he had undertaken a walk of 250 miles to hear the greatest organ virtuoso of the day, Buxtehude. Bach remained in Lübeck far longer than he should have, and was taken to task on his return for abandoning his duties. Bach argued that his visit to hear Buxtehude had greatly helped him develop as a musician. He quickly worked through appointments at Arnstadt, Mühlhausen, and then Weimar. Each new job brought better prospects and an improved salary. Bach negotiating skills extended to using a job offer from Halle to bargain for in increase his salary and status from his current employer, the Duke of Saxe-Weimar.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra at the Proms

In 2020, BBC Radio 3 is bringing together musical greats, from the past and the present, in one extraordinary Proms season. Radio 3 is broadcasting the best of four decades of unmissable Proms concerts.

The sparkling overture from Rossini’s opera Semiramide opens this Prom given by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, led by Italian maestro Riccardo Chailly. Flexing his Beethoven muscles, Chailly gives his unique reading of the composer’s First Symphony – a work later captured as part of a complete cycle, recorded with the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester from 2007 to 2009.

Rounding off the programme is Prokofiev’s striking Third Symphony. Written in 1928, it was a direct and spirited reaction to the disappointment Prokofiev experienced with his opera The Fiery Angel, whose first performance, accepted by Bruno Walter for Berlin, had been summarily and indefinitely postponed. Though the second act was given in a concert in Paris conducted by Koussevitzky in June 1928, the opera as a whole was not seen until 1954. Prokofiev rescued some of the material by developing it symphonically; the result is a work of great drama and intensity.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (m000j3jn)
Anne Applebaum, Ingrid Bergman, Herland

Anne Applebaum's new book The Twilight of Democracy has the subtitle The failure of democracy and the parting of friends. She talks to Anne McElvoy about what happened when she tried to connect up with past friends whose politics are now different to her own. The American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman is most famous now for her short story The Yellow Wallpaper. Will Abberley tells us about her view of fashion and why women should not seek to stand out because a focus on their appearance was counterproductive to them gaining more public power. Gilman conjured a female utopia in her 1915 book Herland. And 2020 New Generation Thinker Sophie Oliver from the University of Liverpool writes us a postcard about the actress Ingrid Bergman and the way she and her would-be biographer Bessie Breuer tried to carve out a different public image for a female star in a novel Breuer published in 1957 called The Actress.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b0b9435w)
The Meaning of Beaches

The Giant's Causeway

A new series of essays by the popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature, Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised five series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers. Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches, all unique and quintessentially British in different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery that captured so much attention for her previous essay series.

The Giant’s Causeway is the ultimate beach-as-symbol with its 40,000 basalt hexagonal columns spawning myriad myths and legends across the millennia, still fascinating mathematicians, geologists, writers, artists, witches and tourists many of whom visit Northern Ireland primarily to come to this beach. The iconic rocks are a result of volcanic eruption 50 million years ago, with some of the weathered formations described as resembling a giant’s boot, chimney stacks and a camel’s hump. Some of this County Antrim beach is owned by the National Trust, but not all of it. Some is owned by the Crown Estate and some by private landowners. Parts of the beach are now restricted and have opening and closing times, with the gift shop supporting a craft industry in Northern Ireland as it has a rule that 80% of crafts sold must be made in Northern Ireland. Large numbers of visitors is perhaps unsurprising since the Giant’s Causeway is Northern Ireland’s only Unesco World Heritage site. The size of the columns was dictated by how fast the lava from the volcano cooled, the faster the cooling, the smaller the columns hence the diameter of the hexagons varies cross the beach.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000l2v3)
JS Bach (1685-1750)

Pupil and Teacher

Donald Macleod looks at what it might have been like to learn the organ alongside the great JS Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bach is often acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of all time and yet, during his lifetime, he was often more famous as an organist. Bach became very much in demand as a performer and a teacher. He was often asked to advise on the design and renovation of expensive church instruments. He composed a great deal of music for organ and was particularly productive during his twenties and early thirties when working at the court in Weimar. All this week Donald Macleod examines Bach’s life and music through the lens of his life-long fascination with the organ, focusing particularly on his time in Weimar and exploring his role as performer organist, teacher, servant, entrepreneur and composer.

In this programme Donald Macleod explores Bach's experiences as an organ student and, later, as a a highly sought after teacher. Bach’s own education in music was sometimes fraught. His older brother wouldn’t allow the young Johann Sebastian to explore a book of keyboard pieces he owned, so Bach secretly purloined the book at night and studied it by moonlight. Bach would eventually have pupils of his own and his reputation grew to such a pitch that pupils would travel to study with him from all over the German-speaking lands. His students would often live in with Bach's family, and the composer would charge them accordingly! Whilst in Weimar, Bach trained a number of organists and his pupils would often take on extra duties like copying out music or pumping the bellows of the organ.

Proms Opera Matinee: Michael Tippett's masterpiece The Midsummer Marriage from the BBC SO, BBC Singers and BBC Symphony Chorus conducted by Andrew Davis - an acclaimed performance from the 2013 BBC Proms. Tippett asked TS Eliot to write the libretto for his first opera, but Eliot recommended the composer to try it himself. The result is one of the unusual but haunting operas ever written, a kind of 1950s Magic Flute. Its three acts are filled with some of the most beautiful operatic music composed since the Second World War, from the chorus's opening hymn to the sun and Mark's rapturous love song to Jenifer through the famous Ritual Dances of Act 2 to the deeply moving aria for the oracle Sosostris at the heart of the final act.

The Meaning of Beaches

Barra Beach

A new series of essays by popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature, Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised five series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers. Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches all unique and quintessentially British in different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery celebrated in her previous essays.

Barra’s ‘Great Beach’ (An Tràigh Mhòr) symbolises survival and ingenuity the only beach airport in the world with scheduled flights and tides and wind dictating whether aircraft can land. Barra’s Great Beach has twice saved islanders from disaster and ruin. In times of famine, the cockles found in great quantity on the beach formed an essential part of the islanders’ diet when crops failed, not a rare occurrence on Barra. Cockles collected by the cartload were shared across the island. The beach has also saved the island economically. Carrageen, a fine seaweed and a ubiquitous glossy thickening agent in so many modern foods, can be gathered in significant quantities here. The sand is calcium rich, made of crushed shells making it a very different dazzling white beach, compared to the usual British brown silica sand beaches. Compton Mackenzie, author of Whisky Galore, the world famous novel of whisky smuggling, lived over-looking Barra beach. Barra Airport beach is bordered by machair which is a Gaelic word meaning fertile low -ying grassy plain. This is the name given to one of the rarest habitats in Europe which only occurs on exposed western coasts of Scotland and Ireland.

Baroque classics from Anne Sofie von Otter and Les Musiciens du Louvre

In 2020, BBC Radio 3 is bringing together musical greats, from the past and the present, in one extraordinary Proms season. Radio 3 is broadcasting the best of four decades of unmissable Proms concerts.

In this late-night concert from 2003, Anne Sofie von Otter joins French conductor Marc Minkowski and his period-instrument orchestra in a pair of arias from Handel’s mighty opera Ariodante – which they recorded together in 1997 – and one of Bach’s most beautiful and consoling solo cantatas, ‘Vergnügte Ruh, beliebte Seelenlust’.

Rounding off this all-Baroque affair is a colourful selection of dances by Jean-Philippe Rameau, a near-direct contemporary of Bach. The suite, which was compiled by Marc Minkowski, draws from a selection of the French composer’s operas.

Bach the Composer

Donald Macleod surveys Johann Sebastian Bach’s development as a composer whilst in Weimar.

Johann Sebastian Bach is often acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of all time and yet, during his lifetime, he was often more famous as an organist. Bach became very much in demand as a performer and a teacher. He was often asked to advise on the design and renovation of expensive church instruments.

All this week Donald Macleod examines Bach’s life and music through the lens of his life-long fascination with the organ, focusing particularly on his time in Weimar and exploring his role as performer organist, teacher, servant, entrepreneur and composer

In this programme Donald Macleod looks at how Bach evolved as a composer during his years at the Weimar court where he had a rich array of instrumental forces at his disposal. As well as writing for his employer, Bach also composed a great deal of music for his family to perform at home. He also often turned to instruments that were archaic even at the time, like the viola da gamba, recorder and lute. One of his primary friendships during this period was with his cousin Walther, who was an organist at the town Church. Walther and Bach enjoyed exploring together the music that Prince Johann Ernst had brought back to Weimar from his Grand Tour in Italy. Bach and Walther drank in works by Albinoni, Corelli, Frescobaldi and, especially, Vivaldi. These Italian influences started to creep into Bach’s own music.

Matthew explores Korda's innovative, high-stakes role as a British propagandist in America, and his part in the desperate effort to coax the Americans into the war as Britain struggled to keep going against the Nazis through 1940 and 1941.

But Matthew also uncovers the more shadowy side of Korda's work for the British, identifying the spies in Latin America he was helping to fund, and tracking the FBI's efforts to expose what he was up to.

And he speaks to Korda's nephew, the writer Michael Korda, about his memories of this extraordinary man and his relationship to the country he made his home, and for which he took such risks.

Speakers include: Angela Allen, Roderick Bailey, Sarah Churchwell, Charles Drazin, John Fleet, Henry Hemming and Michael Korda.

Producer: Phil Tinline


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b0b94d99)
The Meaning of Beaches

Crosby Beach

A new series of essays by the popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised three series of essays The Meaning of Trees and two series of The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches all of which are unique and quintessentially British in very different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these five beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery which has captured so much attention for her previous series’ of essays.

Crosby Beach marks the end of the Mersey, and the edge of Liverpool. This unstable, dangerous, partly toxic mud beach is now home to Antony Gormley statues, 100 naked bronze figures facing out to sea scattered across the beach, bearing witness to the depth of history and the unpredictable future of this ever-changing beach. It was once the site of vital and modern imports and exports by tall sailing ships, both legal and illegal slavery, goods and hopes. Many shipwrecks have occurred at Crosby beach and Britain’s last slave ship sailed out of Liverpool harbour past Crosby beach in 1807. The beach is part soft sand, part mud with a risk of fast tides meaning bathing is banned and the beach has many tide warnings. Attempts to stabilise the beach have been made since the mid-19th century - including attempts to build a sea wall, a scheme to plant old Christmas trees and the use of bombed buildings from the Blitz in WW2 making some parts of the beach potentially hazardous due to asbestos from remnants of those buildings sometimes being found. Crosby was also the site of the SDP’s most famous by-election victory for Shirley Williams. Crosby beach has an ancient and very modern history.


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0009lm1)
Akari Wauja and Nathaniel Mann

Nathaniel Mann, a composer, singer, and sound artist from Essex, recently travelled to the Xingu reservation in Brazil to visit the indigenous community, the Wauja. There he met and recorded with renowned musician and storyteller Akari Wauja, whose mission is to keep his culture alive for younger generations, and to draw attention to the plight of the rainforest habitat and its people.

Tonight this remarkable, unique collaboration comes to the BBC Studios in London, for a live session of improvisation and open-form composition, featuring foot bells, bamboo drums, electric bass, and singing. Late Junction is honoured to host Akari Wauja for his first-ever radio performance, on his first trip to Europe.

Elsewhere in the programme we move from the Amazon to London’s Heathrow Airport, as Verity Sharp showcases Kate Carr’s field recordings from under a flight path.

Produced by Jack Howson.
