9.30am Building a Library

Nigel Simeone recommends his favourite version of Janáček's opera The Cunning Little Vixen.

Also known as Tales of Vixen Sharp-Ears, this Czech-language opera was composed from 1921 to 1923. Its libretto was adapted by the composer from a serialised novella by Rudolf Těsnohlídek, which was first published in the newspaper Lidové noviny. The opera contains Moravian folk music and rhythms as it recounts the life of a clever fox as well as a few humans. The music is wonderfully life-affirming while avoiding any sentimentality about cute animals whatsoever. And the final scene, a great meditation on the cycle of life, was played at Janáček's own funeral.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b0159f6x)
Puccini - Tosca

Another chance to hear Puccini's Tosca recorded in 2011 - Jealousy, torture, murder and suicide: the path of true love certainly produces a bumpy ride.. It's a work that can make for a compelling night at the theatre. But when, as here, you get a cast, conductor and orchestra all at the top of their game, it is positively overwhelming. Three of the great operatic performers of our time are united: Angela Gheorghiu sings the title role, Jonas Kaufmann is her lover Cavaradossi, and Bryn Terfel is that menacing embodiment of sadistic evil, Baron Scarpia. Antonio Pappano conducts. Not to be missed.
Presented by Suzy Klein in conversation with William Ward who puts Tosca's Rome setting in context.

Tosca ..... Angela Gheorghiu (Soprano)
Cavaradossi ..... Jonas Kaufmann (Tenor)

SAT 21:25 Between the Ears (m000p08z)
Isolation, In Your Words

"How has this time of isolation been for you?” Four-year-old Sara and new grandmother Felicity miss cuddles. Frankie is used to being alone but is experiencing a new kind of loneliness. Ramadan is very different this year for Sayra’s family. And Janet, living with cancer, feels even more restricted and uncertain amidst this new ‘normal’.

Weaving together the words and stories of the British public with a blend of rap, jazz, a cappella and verbatim theatre, this half-hour musical documentary blurs the line between songwriting and social research in capturing a snapshot of this unique moment in history.

‘Isolation, In Your Words’ was written and recorded by Mandeep Singh, Leanne Sedin and Kevin Fox, and produced by Arun Dhanjal (Zar). It was commissioned as part of the BBC Culture in Quarantine programme; funded and supported by The Space Arts, BBC Arts and Arts Council England.

At 10.30am, Sarah invites journalist and broadcaster Sharuna Sagar to join her for the Sunday Morning monthly arts roundup, focusing on five cultural happenings that you can catch either online or in person during November.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000p2c9)
Sarah Perry

Sarah Perry’s novels are like extraordinary highly coloured dreams - or nightmares. Her bestseller The Essex Serpent features a mythical sea-creature that roams the Blackwater marshes, and the novel that followed, Melmoth, is a terrifying gothic tale with a female ghost who always seems to be just behind you, almost out of sight.

In Private Passions, Sarah Perry talks to Michael Berkeley about ghosts and Gothic nightmares, and admits that the ghost in Melmoth haunted her too. She wrote the book high on painkillers amidst the ‘torment’ of spinal collapse, an experience of pain which thankfully she recovered from, but which has changed her view of life. She looks back on her upbringing in the Strict Baptist Chapel, in which popular culture was banned – but classical music was played on speakers so large they reached her shoulders, and Beethoven blasted her out of bed at night.

She talks too about Essex, and trying to live down the social shame of being an “Essex Girl” – before realising that Essex girls have a proud tradition, and being an Essex girl was something to aspire to: loud, pleasure-loving, refusing to fit in.

Sarah Perry was a viola player as a child, and her music choices include one of Hindemith’s sonatas for viola – which she describes as “the Essex girl of instruments”. She also loves late Beethoven quartets, and Dvorak, and Bach, and the contemporary composer Stephen Crowe, whose setting of fragments from Sappho is one of her choices. She hates jazz – well, almost all jazz. She invites us to hear the one track that completely seduced her.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m000p0j4)
Tricky timing

Two, three and four beats in a bar are pretty standard in music. But what happens when a composer decides to go with 7 or 5 or 13 as the underlying structure? And why would they do that?

Tom Service talks to composer Anna Meredith and conductor Martyn Brabbins about the fascination and challenge of the off-beat beat.

Magic Numbers

Numbers are beautiful, and mathematics is an art: that is the formula for this episode, in which Sule Rimi and Alibe Parsons read work from poets and philosophers entranced by the beauty, order, irrationality, and infinite wisdom to be found in digits, numerals, and counting.

In addition, they are accompanied by music from composers embedding numerology and codes into their work, including Johann Sebastian Bach, Olivier Messiaen and Iannis Xenakis.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000p2ch)
Curves and Concrete

How did a maverick Scottish architect revolutionise the design of UK skateparks?

Forty years ago, Iain Urquhart had a vision: to create Britain’s first full-scale, architecturally planned, outdoor concrete skatepark – in Livingston, West Lothian.

Iain visited emerging parks across California, taking specialist advice from skateboarders and designers. When his masterpiece opened in 1981 he persuaded some of the biggest international stars of skateboarding to come to Scotland to “skate Livi”.

Iain died two years later, aged just 44 – yet Livingston Skatepark continues to thrive. Tony Hawk, perhaps the world’s best-known skateboarder, describes Livi as “super-challenging… such a legendary spot”.

How did Iain Urquhart convince funders to support his ambitious cultural venture? How did local people react to a vast, Noguchi-esque concrete “moonscape” being constructed for the sole purpose of a niche recreational activity, on what had been a lush green valley? How has the town of Livingston itself been shaped by its pioneering skatepark?

As skateboarding becomes an Olympic sport (in Summer 2021), the documentary maker and sound artist Steve Urquhart presents an audio memorial to his uncle Iain, blending exclusive and personal access to the late architect’s archive with the sounds, music and voices of skateboard culture and counter-culture. In doing so, he reveals a bigger story of artistic ambition and cultural aspiration in Britain’s vibrant 20th-century “new towns”… and a surprising connection with a swimming pool, created by the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto…

Includes music featured in acclaimed skate films and video games – from John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock and Roy Ayers, to Dinosaur Jr, Pixies, Gang Starr, and Lupe Fiasco.

Love Is Not New in This Country

By Samantha Ellis. Introduced by Qais Akbar Omar.

In Kabul in 2005, after the defeat of the Taliban, German-Syrian actress and director Corinne Jaber worked hard to achieve what many thought was an impossible task: to bring together a company of Afghan actors to stage a Dari production of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. Revolutionary things happen in rehearsal - male and female actors appear on the same stage, make eye contact, become friends, and even talk frankly about love, but are plagued by fears that Afghanistan hasn't really changed that much. The Taliban are making death threats against the actresses.

Could this one production really, as one actor vowed, "challenge the whole country"?

Based on the book 'A Night in the Emperor's Garden' by Stephen Landrigan and Qais Akbar Omar.

Household Gods

Composer Iain Chambers’s celebration of the domestic sound world, starting in the present day before travelling back in time.

Lockdown gave us the excuse to consider our own home environments in a new way. Household Gods takes this new focus further, exploring in depth and amplifying the sounds of domestic objects, arranged into a through-composed musique concrète work.

This is a joyful sonic celebration of the domestic environment, starting in the present day, and travelling back in time to explore earlier homes, through historic sound research and sound design.

At times the domestic sound world is bustling, at others a haven of peace. We hear the technology that helps us cook, clean, relax, eat, pass time.

During lockdown, many of us rediscovered the hidden joy in the objects that surround us that we hadn’t properly considered before our enforced isolation.

Composed and produced by Iain Chambers.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000p1n3)
Beethoven Unleashed: Titan

'The moral law within me...'

Beethoven has found a quote by Kant, which seems to fit with the poetic, spiritual music he is writing in this, his final creative period – “There are two things which raise man above himself and lead to eternal, ever-increasing admiration: the moral law within me and the starry sky above me.” However, below Kant’s starry skies, Beethoven’s life is in some disarray.

This week, Donald Macleod explores Ludwig van Beethoven’s life and work between 1822 and 1824 – a period during which the composer completed his greatest late masterpieces. It was also a time in which Beethoven became acutely aware of his own mortality, struggling with both his dwindling finances and his deteriorating health, and sought help from, among others, his brother Johann and a new secretary - Anton Schindler.

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 (m000p1nt)
Composers and Their Dogs

Newfoundlands

Essay One: Newfoundlands
A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Composer Richard Wagner loved this huge, gentle, shaggy Canadian dog breed, having many in his lifetime. The essay includes the rollercoaster tale of Wagner’s daring escape across international borders, dragging his massive Newfoundland, Robber, with him. On arrival in Paris, Robber became a bigger celebrity than Wagner before fame finally came to the composer. The journey inspired Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman. Lord Byron was devoted to his Newfoundlands. His first, Boatswain, resulted in portraits, an elegy and a grand tomb and his last Newfoundland probably caused Byron’s death. Newfoundlands have webbed feet, are great swimmers and have rescued many people from drowning; still being used today by sea rescue services, these fearless dogs leap from helicopters into the water to rescue people.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000p2b8)
Beethoven Unleashed: Titan

The Chevalier

Donald Macleod looks at the period in which Beethoven and his brother Johann reconcile their differences, and Johann begins to help Beethoven in his negotiations with publishers, but not all goes to plan. Johann’s life isn’t running as smoothly as it seems, and Beethoven ends up with more problems as a result.

This week, Donald Macleod explores Ludwig van Beethoven’s life and work between 1822 and 1824 – a period during which the composer completed his greatest late masterpieces. It was also a time in which Beethoven became acutely aware of his own mortality, struggling with both his dwindling finances and his deteriorating health, and sought help from, among others, his brother Johann and a new secretary - Anton Schindler.

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.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m000p2bn)
War in fact and fiction

From East Africa to Arabia, the First World War to Mozambique, Rana Mitter discusses the impact of war on society and culture. Margaret MacMillan's most recent book is called War: How Conflict Shaped Us and takes a deep dive into the history of conflict. Rob Johnson considers what we gain by exploring the overlooked side of Lawrence of Arabia - his thoughts on warfare and military strategy. And, the end of the Gaza empire, and the clash in East Africa between Belgian, German, British and French forces are explored in novels by Mia Couto and Abdulrazak Gurnah. They compare notes about the way fiction can trace changes in relationships due to war.

Margaret MacMillan is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Oxford, a former Reith lecturer for BBC Radio 4 and her latest book is War: How Conflict Shaped Us.

Abdulrazak Gurnah is a Tanzanian author of nine other novels which have been shortlisted for prizes including the Booker and the Whitbread. His new novel is called Afterlives.

Mia Couto is one of the most prominent writers in Portuguese speaking Africa and his writing has been shortlisted for the Man Booker International. His novel newly translated in to English by David Brookshaw is called The Sword and the Spear and is part of a trilogy, the first part of which is called Woman of the Ashes.

Rob Johnson has written Lawrence of Arabia on War: the campaign in the Desert 1916-18

You can find a collection of Free Thinking discussions exploring different aspects of war including debates organised with the Imperial War Museum, the view of former soldiers, literary works by Wilfred Owen, Louis Céline and David Jones https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p06kgbyb

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000p2bq)
Composers and Their Dogs

Old English Sheepdogs

Essay Two: Old English Sheepdogs
A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Composer, eccentric and suffragette Dame Ethel Smyth, the first woman to have an Opera put on at the Met, had five Old English Sheepdogs in succession, all called 'Pan'. She was so obsessed with her dogs that she considered them almost like husbands and wrote a book about the depth of feeling and the need for composers to have canine companionship, called “Inordinate(?) Affection” with the question mark showing she knew others found her obsession odd. Her famous friends and lovers included Emmeline Pankhurst and Virginia Woolf, These sturdy dogs were used as herding dogs whose tails were docked for centuries to avoid taxes and only started being bred with long tails again from 2006. Other musical devotees include Paul McCartney whose first of many Old English sheepdogs inspired the Beatles song “Martha My Dear”.

Beethoven Unleashed: Titan

Monumental Art

Beethoven completes the Missa Solemnis and the Diabelli Variations – two of the great large-scale masterpieces of his new spiritual-poetic style. However, plans for more large-scale works – a tenth Symphony and a second Opera – flounder as the composer becomes increasingly aware of his own mortality.

This week, Donald Macleod explores Ludwig van Beethoven’s life and work between 1822 and 1824 – a period during which the composer completed his greatest late masterpieces. It was also a time in which Beethoven became acutely aware of his own mortality, struggling with both his dwindling finances and his deteriorating health, and sought help from, among others, his brother Johann and a new secretary - Anton Schindler.

Depicting Disability

This November sees the 25th anniversary of the UK Disability Discrimination Act. As we consider what contemporary progress has been made we'll uncover the long history of disabled people’s political activism, look back at the treatment of disabled people in Royal Courts and at fictional portrayals of disability in 19th-century novels from Dickens and George Eliot to Charlotte M Yonge and Dinah Mulock Craik. Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough presents.

Professor David Turner is the author of Disability in Eighteenth-Century England: Imagining Physical Impairment which won the Disability History Association Outstanding Publication Award for the best book published worldwide in disability history. He teaches at Swansea University and was advisor on the BBC Radio 4 series Disability: A New History. His latest book is Disability in the Industrial Revolution: Physical Impairment in British coalmining 1780-1880 (co-authored with Daniel Blackie)
Dr Clare Walker Gore has just published Plotting Disability in the Nineteenth-Century Novel. She teaches English at the University of Cambridge and is a BBC/AHRC New Generation Thinker.

WED 22:45 The Essay (m000p02g)
Composers and Their Dogs

Poodles

Essay Three: Poodles
A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

As an older man, Joseph Haydn was very comfortably off, living in the Esterhazy court in eastern Austria. An unlikely flirtation developed between him and a young woman who inadvertently offended him, when an incredible tale about her lover’s poodle prompted her to beg Haydn to set the tale to music. The story uncovers the depth of his loneliness and the fragility of his ego. Frédéric Chopin is famously reported as having been besotted with his lover, Georges Sand's toy poodle, who was the inspiration for his Minute Waltz due to its pirouetting. However, our research shows this not to be the case – not only was the white fluffy dog in question probably not a toy poodle, but the name of the waltz has much less to do with sixty seconds and far more to do with dog sizes. Poodles in the 1960s were seen as glamour dogs, the choice of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Walt Disney and surprisingly also Elvis Presley who gave them as gifts to women he courted. There's been a resurgence in recent decades for cross-breeding poodles as their coats are non-allergic for humans. Plus, poodle tales involving Beethoven, and Rodgers and Hammerstein.

Music after dark

Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents an adventurous, immersive soundtrack for late-night listening, from classical to contemporary and everything in between. As the nights draw in, Sara invites us to explore with her the musical dimensions of a room. She starts with Alvin Lucier's ground-breaking recording, 'I'm sitting in a room', which reappears throughout the programme. She moves from the small, intimate rooms of Durante, in his Concerto in G minor for two violins and viola, and the close sound of Nakamura's piano recordings, through John Luther Adams' 'In a Room' to the large, cavernous sound of Terje Isungset's 'Essence of Stone 6', which was recorded in the amazing Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum-Oslo with its extreme 12-second-long reverb. As Joan Sutherland sings 'Dreamt I dwelt in the marble halls', Brian and Roger Eno play from Music for the Marble Palace, the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg. At midnight we enter the inner sanctum of Solesmes Abbey with its cathedral-like acoustic, the bells toll the hour and the monks sing Gregorian chant. After hearing the revenant climax of Alvin Lucier's 'I'm sitting in a Room', we return to the intimate quartet writing of Stenhammar and then end looking out of the room as Joan Baez sings Go 'way from my Window.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000p1dj)
Beethoven Unleashed: Titan

We need to talk about Anton

Anton Schindler becomes Beethoven’s secretary, and despite the fact that everyone seems to dislike him, including Beethoven, he quickly becomes indispensable to the composer. However, there is a problem - Anton can’t be trusted.

This week, Donald Macleod explores Ludwig van Beethoven’s life and work between 1822 and 1824 – a period during which the composer completed his greatest late masterpieces. It was also a time in which Beethoven became acutely aware of his own mortality, struggling with both his dwindling finances and his deteriorating health, and sought help from, among others, his brother Johann and a new secretary - Anton Schindler.

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.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m000p1dz)
Composers and Their Dogs

Dachshunds

Essay Four: Dachshunds
A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Composers Benjamin Britten and Leonard Bernstein were both dachshund aficionados, with stories galore about both. Benjamin Britten was almost inseparable from his dachshunds, taking them to rehearsals and concerts. He was often to be seen walking along the Suffolk coast with his dachshunds and the famous Red House in Aldeburgh has signs in many languages (many from other famous composers and musicians) warning people to beware of the fierce dogs. This was not as fanciful as it might appear. These ‘sausage dogs’ are figures of fun but they were bred and trained to flush out rabbits or badgers, often known as badger hounds and are fearless fighters. Research marks dachshunds out as amongst the most aggressive breeds, fiercely defending their owners. Leonard Bernstein had a succession of very badly behaved dachshunds, all named Henry. When he was abroad on tour, if he had not taken one of his dachshunds with him, he would often commandeer other peoples’ dachshunds and got a reputation for being a serial dog kidnapper ; but who was going to say “No” to the famous composer? Artists also devoted to dachshunds included Picasso.

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 22:00 The Verb (m000p0jd)
The Changing Language of Veganism: Experiments in Living

Are you what you eat? The way we talk and think about food has changed a lot in recent years, particularly when it comes to the idea of eating ethically and the concept of veganism. Once a punchline, it's now a multi-million pound industry. What do the words we use to talk about food tell us about the underlying moral issues? Why is food so tied up with shame? Can we find the language to become 'good enough' eaters?

Joining Ian to talk about the language of food from 'clean' to 'dirty' are Benjamin Zephaniah, who became a vegan instinctively before he even knew the word for it, and who is perhaps best loved for his plea to be kinder to animals at Christmas; 'Talking Turkey'. The novelist Jonathan Safran Foer first examined morality and food in his 2009 non-fiction book 'Eating Animals', and it's a subject he has returned to in his latest book 'We are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast'. Argentinian novelist Agustina Bazterrica explains the challenges of not eating meat in a country where it is central to the culture, and discusses her dystopian novel 'Tender is the Flesh'. And meat runs throughout the poetry of Rachael Allen, who is in fact a vegan.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (m000p0jg)
Composers and Their Dogs

Cocker Spaniels

Essay Five: Cocker Spaniels
A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores famous composers and their devotion to certain dog breeds.

Through surprising and insightful stories and discoveries about both the composers and their dogs, the essays provide new insights into the type of people the composers were, their lives and the features of their chosen dog breeds that brought such devotion.

Elton John was so devoted to his cocker spaniel, Arthur, that not only did the dog get given Elton’s original surname, Dwight, but he was also the best man at his owner’s wedding to David Furnish. Sir Edward Elgar was not allowed dogs by his wife during their decades-long marriage. When she died he had dogs for the rest of his life, his favourite being his spaniel Marco. He would address Marco from live radio broadcasts and the dog would react on hearing his master’s voice say his name. Poet Elizabeth Barrett idolised her cocker spaniel, Flush, who bit husband-to-be Robert Browning, was stolen, recovered, eloped with them and was the subject of a biography by Virginia Woolf. Other surprises include cocker spaniels being the first dog breed to detect cancer by smell.

FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000p0jj)
GAIKA on sampling

Artist and composer GAIKA joins Jen ahead of his event at the EFG London Jazz Festival. For this year’s edition he’s collaborating with musicians Azekel and Miink at London’s Cafe Oto venue, sampling his dad’s vinyl collection to explore themes of turmoil and the revolutionary body. GAIKA is a Brixton-born musician, writer and activist who once stated his aim was to make ‘anti-commercial music’.
For Late Junction, he traces the sonic lineages of jazz in his own music, particularly focused on themes of preservation and legacy in sampling. He selects some special records from his dad’s record collection, sharing the personal stories behind them and the influence jazz has had on his own musical growth.

Elsewhere on the show: wistful ambient experiments from Croatian Amor; dark-electro percussion from Uganda’s Nihiloxica; and a powerful call for transformation, freedom and decolonisation from Melbourne experimental doom duo Divide and Dissolve.

Produced by Katie Callin.
