9.30am Building a Library

Katy Hamilton chooses her favourite recording of Beethoven's Piano Sonata No 29 in B flat, Op 106, 'Hammerklavier'.

Beethoven's Piano Sonata No 29 in B flat, Op 106, known as the Große Sonate für das Hammerklavier, or simply the 'Hammerklavier', is one of the most important works on the piano repertoire. Beethoven composed the sonata in 1818 and dedicated it to his patron the Archduke Rudolf. Spanning nearly 50 minutes in some performances, the Hammerklavier is a vast journey through four movements, culminating in a monumental fugue. The Hammerklavier has all the hallmarks of Beethoven's late style: the stylised development of brusque motives, a return to classical sonata forms and an exploration of modal harmonies.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m000p6yk)
As part of the BBC's focus on disability this month, marking the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, Tom Service takes a look at how the music industry deals with disability, from different angles. We start with an interview with the celebrated American violinist Itzhak Perlman, who suffered from polio as a child, to discuss about the need for the industry to adopt practices in favour of disabled musicians so that it becomes more fair and more inclusive in the future. Also, we eavesdrop into the project 'Sound and Voice', helping people with larynx implants and with motor neuron disease. We talk to Matt Griffiths from 'Youth Music' about their latest search revealing how education is apparently failing disabled students wishing to break into the industry. And we hear about the experiences learnt by the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra with running BSO Resound, a professional disabled-led ensemble.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m000d6nb)
Lute player Elizabeth Kenny explores timeless music

As one of the world’s leading lute and theorbo players, Elizabeth Kenny brings old musical manuscripts to sparkling life both as a soloist and in ensembles like Phantasm and her own Theatre of the Ayre.

Liz’s choice of music today includes a symphony by Mahler that’s at the opposite end of the musical scale from the sound of a solo lute, a ragtime number that has some Verdi buried at its heart, and a wild seascape in music painted by Ethel Smyth.

She also plays a set of variations that reveal pianist Friedrich Gulda’s very personal take on a song by The Doors.

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

SUNDAY 08 NOVEMBER 2020

SUN 00:00 Freeness (m000p6yw)
Sonic Explorations from Thailand

A Bangkok-based duo called Yama create music inspired by yoga philosophy. Paponpat Weerawit and Don Pengboon are two unsung heroes of Thailand’s underground experimental music scene. Together they make music that embraces you with open arms and curious ears.

Plus, a compelling juxtaposition between elegiac horn lines and a field of fuzz and distortion. It comes from a new group called Scarla O’Horror featuring James Allsopp (tenor saxophone), Alex Bonney (trumpet), Isambard Khroustaliov (electronics) and Tim Giles (drums). And the Slovenian pianist and composer Kaja Draksler pulls together a stellar band for a collage piece containing the poetry of Robert Frost, Handel’s psalm Dominus a dextris tuis and free improvisation.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (m000p6cr)
Sarah Walker with a kaleidoscopic musical mix

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

Today, Sarah starts the morning with the sparkling virtuosity of violinist Julia Fischer playing Paganini, and later guides us through some less well-known but equally attractive pieces by Augusta Gross and Rebecca Clarke.

She also finds unexpected expression in the music of Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, the eldest son of JS Bach, and marvels at the precise delicacy of Mitsuko Uchida’s piano technique.

And as part of the BBC's focus on disability in November, Sarah will be marking the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0003560)
Greta Scacchi

From Hollywood to European art house cinema, from Shakespeare to contemporary drama, Greta Scacchi is one of our most versatile actors.

She talks to Michael Berkeley about the film that made her name in 1983 – Heat and Dust – and chooses music from the soundtrack featuring Zakir Hussain.

She reveals how her musical training as a child – learning ballet, piano and singing - has been invaluable when she’s been called on to play and sing on film. She particularly loved the character she played in Jefferson in Paris, the eighteenth-century Anglo-Italian artist and musician Maria Cosway, and explains how difficult it was to pretend the play the harp on screen. We hear some of Maria Cosway’s music from that film.

Greta chooses music by Satie which reminds her of her mother’s ballet school when she was a child. Her mother is still dancing at 87! And we hear one of Canteloube’s Chants d’Auvergne, and a Handel aria which illustrate Greta’s passion for the theatre; she chooses pieces which remind her of the places she loves – Sussex, Italy and Australia. We get an insight into her passion for jazz with music from Jimmy Guiffre and Fats Waller.

And Greta speaks out about the importance of actors campaigning for causes they believe in – she’s passionate about the environment and even posed naked with a cod to draw attention to unsustainable fishing.

Pain, a near-universal experience in one way or another – from toothache and physical agony, to lovelorn loss, and searing grief. We all have our own methods of relieving it....that's if we want to. It’s one of the building blocks of human emotion, of human expression, and to depict it in art, and especially music has been the artists obsession since time immemorial. Whether distilling emotion in tones when words fail or moving an audience to tears, we return to it time and again, because on some level we all experience the artistic beauty, the pleasure of pain, the need to feel the raw emotion laid bare.

As part of the BBC's focus on disability this month, marking the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, Hannah French explores musical depictions of pain from composers such as William Cornysh, Claudio Monteverdi, Thomas Crecquillon, Purcell, Biber and Handel.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0008glp)
All the Tunes

What links pre-war picker George Formby and Wagner, US rock duo The White Stripes and Bruckner, crooning legend Barry Manilow and Chopin? The surprising answer is that they've all shared tunes. Is that because, after 1,000 years of written music, there are no tunes left? What are the essential ingredients of a great tune and how difficult is it to write one?

Tom Service seeks answers with the help of maths man Marcus du Sautoy and composer Jessica Curry.

David Papp (producer)

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m000p6d4)
The Silence of My Pain

As part of the BBC's focus on disability this month, marking the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, Radio 3 presenter Hannah French reveals some of the problems she has encountered as a musician living with one of those often "hidden" disabilities - chronic pain.

For 15 years, Hannah has lived with constant pain in her leg, stemming from a genetic condition called Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. It’s an ever-present feature of her life but despite talking about music on the radio, she shies away from using it to help manage the pain. Could this all change? Art has the ability to conjure the agonies (and ecstasies) of pain, but it’s hugely subjective - and how powerful or helpful is music in relating shared experiences? She talks to fellow Radio 3 presenter Fiona Talkington about musical language, and to violinist Nicola Benedetti about the importance of listening to our bodies. Theatre Director Rachel Bagshaw leads Hannah into a world in which she’s channelled pain into a creative space, and neuropathologist turned musician Malcolm Galloway tells her about how being on stage is, for him, the best medicine. Finally, Goldsmiths' Professor Joydeep Bhattacharya helps Hannah to explore the medical science behind the phenomenon of ‘Flow’ – explaining how she once suppressed painful sensations long enough to perform as a flautist.

SUN 23:00 Zichy, Wittgenstein and Me (m000p6db)
Presented by Nicholas McCarthy

As part of the BBC's focus on disability this month, marking the 25th anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, the pianist Nicholas McCarthy, who was born without his right hand, explores the treasures of the left-hand piano repertoire and tells the intriguing stories behind their composition. Whilst Geza Zichy and Paul Wittgenstein, both concert pianists who lost their right arms, are the key figures in the composition and expansion of left-hand music, there are also stories of Godowsky's pedagogical left-hand transcriptions of the Chopin etudes, intended to strengthen his pupils' 'weaker' left-hand technique, and the touching romance behind Brahms's transcription of the Bach Chaconne for Clara Schumann when she injured her right hand in an accident.

Nicholas McCarthy see himself as the next one-handed pianist to follow directly in Zichy and Wittgenstein's footsteps and talks of his hopes for the future expansion of the repertoire. He talks about Stephen Hough's writing for left-hand piano and finds out what it is that makes this repertoire unique, demonstrating specific techniques at the piano.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000p7mq)
James Price Johnson (1894-1955)

James P Johnson the Tickler

Donald Macleod journeys through Johnson’s early career when he wanted to become a tickler - a ragtime saloon pianist.

James P Johnson is known as the Father of Stride Piano, and composed the most iconic work that captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties, the Charleston. Both pianist and composer, he not only wrote jazz but also music for theatrical shows, symphonic works and opera too. He performed alongside jazz greats such as Fats Waller, Willie the Lion Smith and Sidney Bechet, and also collaborated with George Gershwin as well. Johnson was an early pioneer in the recording industry, and made many studio recordings as a soloist and with his own jazz band. Yet despite all of this, his name has been largely forgotten today. One possible reason for this is that being a transitional figure between ragtime and jazz, he’s been hard to categorise. Each day in this series, Donald Macleod will explore a period in Johnson’s life where Johnson strove to achieve a different role: recording artist, theatre composer, performer and teacher, and also a tickler - a ragtime saloon pianist.

James P Johnson was born in the 1890s, although the exact date is uncertain. Music played an important part in his life from the off, as his mother played the piano, and he’d creep down stairs late at night as a child to hear the musical house parties his parents hosted. As he grew up, he’d often play music on the street, performing songs he’d picked up hanging around the doors of saloons. His ambition was to become a tickler, a ragtime piano player who performed inside clubs. What he was maybe unaware of was that these venues also offered gambling, drugs, and prostitution. His family moved to New York where Johnson got to hear symphonic music for the first time. This made a big impression on him. Soon he’d drop out of school altogether to pursue a career as a musician, performing at the piano in clubs, accompanying cinema screenings, and starting to write his own music.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000p83n)
James Price Johnson (1894-1955)

James P Johnson the Pianist

Donald Macleod delves into the period James P Johnson becomes both a piano legend and teacher to the future stars of the jazz world.

James P Johnson is known as the Father of Stride Piano, and composed the most iconic work that captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties, the Charleston. Both pianist and composer, he not only wrote jazz but also music for theatrical shows, symphonic works and opera too. He performed alongside jazz greats such as Fats Waller, Willie the Lion Smith and Sidney Bechet, and also collaborated with George Gershwin as well. Johnson was an early pioneer in the recording industry, and made many studio recordings as a soloist and with his own jazz band. Yet despite all of this, his name has been largely forgotten today. One possible reason for this is that being a transitional figure between ragtime and jazz, he’s been hard to categorise. Each day in this series, Donald Macleod will explore a period in Johnson’s life where Johnson strove to achieve a different role: recording artist, theatre composer, performer and teacher, and also a tickler - a ragtime saloon pianist.

Johnson was now becoming more interested in music for the theatre, both as a composer and performer. As a pianist he would pick up tunes other pianists played and try them himself, experimenting with them with different harmonies and developing a technique of his own. He’d already been studying some of the greats of classical music, and so when performing in clubs and saloons, he’d suddenly introduce to his rags chromatic octaves and glissandos up and down with both hands, so that his skill as a pianist was soon in demand. He also formed his own band, the Jimmie Johnson Trio, although there was some resistance to the kind of jazz they performed. His prowess as a pianist would lead him to collaborate with some of the great rising stars of the day, including Ethel Waters and Bessie Smith, and the star-struck Fats Waller sought out Johnson to be his teacher.

BBC Symphony Orchestra at Maida Vale

The BBC Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Nicholas Collon in ballet music by Mozart from his opera Idomeneo, and two choreographed works by Stravinsky: the Suite from his one-act ballet Pulcinella, based on early 18th-century commedia dell'arte sources and music, plus the Basle Concerto in D for strings. There's also Hannah Kendall's Kanashibari - the Japanese term for sleep paralysis, "an incredibly fascinating phenomenon when one temporarily experiences an inability to move when either falling asleep or awaking." writes the composer. "This happens when the sleep cycles become out-of-sync with each other and the brain essentially awakes before the body. It is often associated with very real-like visions and hallucinations, such as an intruder in the room or clothes on the floor coming to life, to which one is unable to react due to paralysis.....Sleep paralysis most certainly is not a restful experience, usually occurring during periods of intense stress."
Presented by Georgia Mann.
Recorded in Maida Vale Studio 1 on 7 October 2020.

James P Johnson is known as the Father of Stride Piano, and composed the most iconic work that captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties, the Charleston. Both pianist and composer, he not only wrote jazz but also music for theatrical shows, symphonic works and opera too. He performed alongside jazz greats such as Fats Waller, Willie the Lion Smith and Sidney Bechet, and also collaborated with George Gershwin as well.

Each day in this series, Donald Macleod will explore a period in Johnson’s life where Johnson strove to achieve a different role: recording artist, theatre composer, performer and teacher, and also a tickler - a ragtime saloon pianist.

During the mid-1920s, James P Johnson began to make a name for himself as a composer for the theatre. The line-up of producers he worked with was impressive, including Earl Carroll, George White, Frank Montgomery, Flo Ziegfeld and the Schubert Brothers. In 1922 he worked on a show called Plantation Days, which proved so successful it travelled to Europe where Johnson collaborated with George Gershwin. Then came Johnson’s hit show, Runnin’ Wild, which included his most iconic work, the Charleston. Runnin’ Wild was so popular it opened on Broadway, performing in New York for two years, and then on to London. His career was at an all-time high, and it was during this period that Johnson began to write large symphonic works to, including Yamekraw. But it was his music for the theatre which had the most impact, writing hit numbers such as If I could be with you. This song would be recorded by many musical legends, including Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, Oscar Peterson, Benny Goodman, Katy Star, Helen Humes, Art Tatum, Bing Crosby and Doris Day.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000p8fz)
James Price Johnson (1894-1955)

James P Johnson the Recording Artist

Donald Macleod traces James P. Johnson’s career as a highly successful studio artist.

James P Johnson is known as the Father of Stride Piano, and composed the most iconic work that captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties, the Charleston. Both pianist and composer, he not only wrote jazz but also music for theatrical shows, symphonic works and opera too. He performed alongside jazz greats such as Fats Waller, Willie the Lion Smith and Sidney Bechet, and also collaborated with George Gershwin as well. Johnson was an early pioneer in the recording industry, and made many studio recordings as a soloist and with his own jazz band. Yet despite all of this, his name has been largely forgotten today. One possible reason for this is that being a transitional figure between ragtime and jazz, he’s been hard to categorise. Each day in this series, Donald Macleod will explore a period in Johnson’s life where Johnson strove to achieve a different role: recording artist, theatre composer, performer and teacher, and also a tickler - a ragtime saloon pianist.

During the late 1920s and into the 1930s, James P Johnson clocked up an impressive sixty recording sessions cutting piano rolls, recording in studio as a soloist, leading bands and accompanying singers. It’s a period when the record industry was booming. Johnson regularly recorded with Ethel Waters and the Queen of the Blues, Bessie Smith. The recordings he made demonstrate Johnson’s indisputable prowess as a pianist, and also as a shrewd businessman pursuing the changing market away from live performances towards the studio. He also took the opportunity to compose and record some more experimental works, including Riffs, and You’ve Got to Be Modernistic. Meanwhile in the orchestral pit, conducting musical theatre, he was considered something of a showman.

Schubert and Friends

Sam Haywood his curates the third of four broadcasts from The Venue at Leeds College of Music that explore the chamber works of Schubert and some of his peers. The series continues with an exploration of the Impromptu. Sam performs a piece from little heard Czech composer Jan Vaclav Vorisek's Op. 7 Impromptus, believed to be the first time the title 'Impromptu' was used to describe a musical work. This is followed by two further Impromptus from Schubert's D. 899 set.

Soprano Ailish Tynan returns to perform three more Schubert songs with Sam, before clarinettist Katherine Spencer has her own chance to shine with Sam in Schumann's Fantasiestucke Op.73. The programme concludes with violinist Jack Liebeck and cellist Guy Johnston joining Sam at the piano for the final time this week in Schubert's single movement Notturno.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (m000p8g1)
BBC Concert Orchestra

With Fiona Talkington. Showcasing two composers as part of ‘1 in 5’, the BBC's focus on disability this month: Edward German, who was visually impaired at the end of his life, and Delius, who was both blind and paralysed.

But first, another chance to hear the Tristan and Isolde story, re-told with a contemporary, multi-cultural backdrop by Julian Joseph to a libretto by Mike Phillips. In this oratorio for modern times Isolde longs to escape to the Transylvanian countryside, where she meets Tristan and falls in love. What she doesn't realise at first is that she has met Tristan before when he was part of a street gang in London and she tended his injury. Tristan also harbours a dark secret concerning Isolde's former fiancee.

Postcolonial Derby: Privateers, Pieces of Eight and the Postwar Playhouse

What connects a "double elephant" sized map, an academy of dissenters and Daniel Defoe? Shahidha Bari takes a virtual visit to the University of Derby's hub for the Being Human Festival 2020. Today the East Midlands city of Derby is often overlooked, but it was one of the powerhouses of the industrial revolution. Historians and archivists have been exploring Derby as a postcolonial city and uncovering its hidden past. We hear how an intricate set of world maps by the 18th-century cartographer Hermann Moll may have arrived in Derby and what they tell us about the city's relationship with the world. What light can the Mexican silver coins Arkwright used to pay his mill workers at Cromford shed on 19th-century global trade and piracy? And how did Derby's little theatre club formed after the Second World War give rise to a star of the British cinema, Alan Bates?

Shahidha Bari speaks to historians from the University of Derby; Dr Cath Feely, Professor Paul Elliot and Dr Oliver Godsmark. And we hear from Laura Phillips, Head of Interpretation and Display at Derby Museums. and Mark Young, Librarian at Derby Local Studies Library.

James Price Johnson (1894-1955)

James P Johnson Returns

Donald Macleod journeys with James P Johnson as he comes out of retirement and makes a comeback.

James P Johnson is known as the Father of Stride Piano, and composed the most iconic work that captures the essence of the Roaring Twenties, the Charleston. Both pianist and composer, he not only wrote jazz but also music for theatrical shows, symphonic works and opera too. He performed alongside jazz greats such as Fats Waller, Willie the Lion Smith and Sidney Bechet, and also collaborated with George Gershwin as well. Johnson was an early pioneer in the recording industry, and made many studio recordings as a soloist and with his own jazz band. Yet despite all of this, his name has been largely forgotten today. One possible reason for this is that being a transitional figure between ragtime and jazz, he’s been hard to categorise. Each day in this series, Donald Macleod will explore a period in Johnson’s life where Johnson strove to achieve a different role: recording artist, theatre composer, performer and teacher, and also a tickler - a ragtime saloon pianist.

Many years of working late nights as a performer, and also alcohol abuse, started to take its toll on Johnson’s health in later life. He was advised to take a step back from performing and to restrict his alcohol intake, and it was during this period that he had the opportunity to focus more on writing largescale orchestral works. Johnson however wasn’t long in retirement, and soon he stepped back into the limelight, writing music for stage shows, performing both live and in the studio. But after a series of strokes, by the early 1950s Johnson was left irreversibly paralysed. In late November 1955, another massive stroke came and American music lost one of the greatest figures of the day.
