Stravinsky 50 - Reinventing Stravinsky!

As we commemorate 50 years of the death of Igor Stravinsky, Tom Service explores how his music continues to resonate in today's world, how his legacy has been in effect reinvented, from contemporary composition to film scores, from digital sampling in pop to the language of jazz, and also in the world of dance.

With contributions from the composers George Benjamin, Anders Hillborg, Shiva Feshareki and Helen Grime, explaining how Stravinsky's music has shaped their work and their lives; from the musicologists Marina Frolova-Walker, Robert Fink and Jonathan Cross, who elaborate on how Stravinsky has been reinvented on many different contexts since his death; and we also hear from the dancer and choreographer Seeta Patel, who reinterpreted the iconic ballet 'Rite of Spring' within South Indian classical dance traditions.

Producer: Juan Carlos Jaramillo

SAT 13:00 Stravinsky 50 - River of Music (m000v22w)
To mark half a century since the end of Igor Stravinsky’s long and creative musical life, Radio 3 presents a river of his music. Over the course of five and a half hours discover a rich and surprising mix of 50 pieces, expertly curated and sprinkled with the insights of Stravinsky performers.

This is a unique chance to submerge yourself in Stravinsky’s dramatic musical world in pieces written between 1904 and 1965. Be carried along through colourful scenes of Russian life in the powerful rhythms and poignant orchestrations of his ballets - from the Rite of Spring to Agon. Enjoy the lush harmonies of his earliest compositions, the neat symmetry, humour and grace of his tributes to past musical styles and the unexpected stillness at the heart of his choral masterpieces. Plus dip your toes into some Stravinsky-style jazz.

There will be a vast range of performers, from Stravinsky himself to the current generation, and along the course of the river, ten leading musicians give short insights into how they interpret music by this multifaceted composer. How can a violinist balance Stravinsky’s rhythm with lyricism? How does a singer weave their voice in and out of intricate instrumental textures? And what techniques can a conductor use to get everyone to play Stravinsky’s complex patterns in sync?

Besides selections from Stravinsky’s more familiar works, we’ll discover lesser-known gems in brief moments from rare stage productions, delicate arrangements, beautifully crafted songs and solo instrumental pieces. The river takes a non-chronological course, its sweep carrying us on a meandering journey across continents, between Russia, France and the USA, and through every phase of Stravinsky’s composing life, creating delightful juxtapositions and intriguing transitions along the way.

You can listen with innocent ears, or discover the details of each piece as it unfolds via the Radio 3 website or finding #Stravinsky50 on social media.

Stravinsky 50: River of Music is introduced by Sarah Walker, and features the voices of conductors Sakari Oramo, Vasily Petrenko, Simon Halsey and Ben Gernon, singer Claire Booth, pianist Beatrice Rana, percussionist Colin Currie, violinist Carolin Widmann and composer Freya Waley-Cohen. Plus, a word from Igor Stravinsky himself.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m000v22y)
Stravinsky 50 - The Rake's Progress

When Igor Stravinsky, inspired by the 18th-century prints of William Hogarth’s The Rake’s Progress, approached poet W.H. Auden for a libretto, one of the greatest opera collaborations came into being. Joined by Auden’s partner, Chester Kallman, the two men of words created a quirky parable in rhyme that Stravinsky fired up into some of his most striking, theatrical, and often tender music.

Tom Rakewell, egotistical and spendthrift, is lured away from the countryside and his faithful sweetheart Anne Truelove to London. He has been tricked by Nick Shadow, a Mephistophelean man, who introduces him to a new life of brothels, money-making scams, and debauchery. Where will it lead? Stravinsky’s last Neo-Classical work weaves Classical pastoral, the Faust legend, fairy tale, circus, and the Bible, with hints of Mozart, Handel and Monteverdi. The Rake’s Progress is Stravinsky at the height of his powers and is the perfect introduction to his genius.

This acclaimed semi-staged performance was recorded on 22rd March 1997 at the Royal Festival Hall, London.

Presented by Kate Molleson in conversation with Professor Jonathan Cross of the University of Oxford.

SYNOPSIS

In the idyllic countryside, Anne Trulove and Tom Rakewell celebrate their love. Anne’s father has found a job for Tom in the city, but Tom longs for an easier path to money. Nick Shadow appears with news that Tom has inherited a fortune from an unknown uncle. They must leave for London and Tom need only pay Shadow for his services after a year and a day. In the wicked city, Shadow introduces Tom to Mother Goose’s brothel. Back in the country, Anne fears the worst and decides that she must rescue Tom.

Meanwhile, Tom, in his new London house, is already bored with ordinary pleasures, so Shadow suggests visiting the amazing bearded woman, Baba the Turk. When Anne arrives at Tom’s house, she is horrified to find him married to the hideous Baba. When Tom tires of Baba as well, Shadow appears with one last new idea… a machine that turns stones into bread. Anne again appears to save Tom, but this time his house is for sale and his property for auction. The bankrupt Tom has disappeared with Shadow. Baba urges Anne to follow him.

A year and a day from their first meeting, Shadow brings Tom to a graveyard at night. A terrified Tom discovers he must pay not with money but with his soul. But, as Shadow is about to take hold of him, Tom hears Anne’s voice in the distance and his past love is reawakened. Shadow, defeated, disappears into the ground. Tom survives, but he is now mad and is shut up in Bedlam. Anne comes there to comfort him, but there is little to be done. Her father arrives and persuades her to leave Tom to his fate.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000vh01)
James Shapiro

James Shapiro is one of the world’s great Shakespeare scholars. A professor of English at Columbia University in New York, he is the author of seven major books, including the bestsellers "1599" and "1606", each of which zoomed in on one year, immersing us in Elizabethan and Jacobean culture and politics. His latest book is “Shakespeare in a Divided America”, an intriguing study of how the bard has been staged – and fought over – on his side of the Atlantic. But Professor Shapiro describes himself as “the least academic academic I know”: he is deeply involved in the practical business of staging Shakespeare, working with The Globe in London, with the RSC, and with a New York company that takes plays into schools and prisons.

In an episode to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, James Shapiro talks about how he first fell in love with the Bard, despite a terrible teacher at school who put him off as a teenager. He reflects on his upbringing in a Jewish family in Brooklyn, and the family reaction when he married an Irish Catholic. He reveals why holding hands had a different meaning in Elizabethan England. And, drawing on historical parallels, he tells Michael Berkeley that he is absolutely certain we will have a thriving theatre culture again soon: after a plague (or a pandemic) people need the theatre.

For Private Passions, James Shapiro creates a playlist which gathers together fellow-admirers of Shakespeare, with Mendelssohn, Duke Ellington and Cole Porter. The programme begins with an Elizabethan pop song with lyrics by Shakespeare himself.

The Great Highland Bagpipe

From shortbread tins to the Royal Mile, rugby games and highland weddings, the bagpipes have long been a symbol of Scottish identity: but where did they come from, what are they for, and who writes their music?

With pipers Simon McKerrell and Brighde Chaimbeul, Tom Service explores their history against the backdrop of global piping traditions from Sweden to Macedonia, Spain and Hungary. What's the difference between the ceol mhor and the ceol beag? Are modern pipes more likely to be made from goat or gore-tex? And how did they make their way into everything from AC/DC to Eminem, and Berlioz to Bach? Tom is on the case...


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m000vh05)
The Trumpet

Poetry and prose about the trumpet, with readings by Madeleine Potter and Joseph Ayre.

The trumpet occupies a special place in the collective consciousness, a sonic presence throughout centuries of celebrations, ceremonies, wars and visions. Here is an instrument that brought down the walls of the city of Jericho, and whose “loud clangour excites us to arms'' in the words of John Dryden (encountered in this programme in a setting by George Frideric Handel). We hear a scene from Louis MacNiece’s BBC drama, The Dark Tower (first broadcast in 1946), a parable play on the “ancient theme of the Quest” in which the protagonist is a young trumpeter, practising his fanfare as he prepares to meet his fate.

But the instrument has many lives beyond the battlefield: for Walt Whitman, it takes on the role of otherworldly messenger, inviting him into a mystical experience; it appears as a metaphor in Alice Oswald’s celebratory love sonnet, Wedding; contemporary jazz musician Ambrose Akinmusire explores its tender and fragile possibilities; and Langston Hughes reads Trumpet Player at the BBC in 1962, his poetic ode to the instrument’s place in the history of African-American expression and memory.

Whether in the hands of apocalyptic angels, enthusiastic amateurs, mourners, or virtuosic improvisers, it seems that the trumpet is something of a summoner, calling us away from the everyday, towards another reality...

Lure

Alison Lock's dreamlike journey describes her dramatic, near-fatal accident four years ago. One morning, on her regular walk on the Yorkshire moors, she slipped and fell into a millpond, breaking her back in seven places along the way. Alison has no memory of the moment of falling, but every second of clawing her way back to life, from one handhold to the next, is vividly imprinted and distilled into this poetic sequence.

Music by Will Gregory (Goldfrapp, The Moog Ensemble), with violin by Alex Balanescu (Michael Nyman Band, Balanescu Quartet), and vocals by Hazel Mills (Goldfrapp, Florence and the Machine, The Paper Cinema).

Sound design by Iain Hunter.

Repeating Patterns in the Street Harassment of Women

Towards the end of the 19th and in the early years of the 20th century, there was a marked increase in the reported incidents of women being harassed in public in the UK. A similar situation today was highlighted by the social media response to the death of Sarah Everard last month. New Generation Thinker Dr Rachel Hewitt of Newcastle University, explores parallels between the two periods. In both cases increasing rights for women appear to have provoked a surge in physical threat from men, particularly in public spaces. Back then it was the Married Women’s Property Act and the Matrimonial Causes Act along with the successful campaigning of the Suffragist movement that were forging real changes in women's lives.

Rachel visits Bensham Grove in Newcastle, where a refuge was established by a Quaker family who sought, through community and education, to provide women with a safe space in which to exercise their changing role in society. But when it came to their own security back then, the focus was still on the women themselves, and what they might do to avoid danger.

Rachel talks to historians Dr Stacy Gillis and Dr Liz O'Donnell about the parallels and differences between the two periods and in particular the shift today towards an emphasis on what men should be doing to bring about the public safety and security of women.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (m00061m2)
The Phlebotomist

Bea meets Aaron. He’s intelligent, handsome, makes her laugh and, most importantly, has a high rating on his genetic profile. What’s not to like? Char has two degrees and is on the brink of landing her dream job but her rating threatens it all... In a ratist world where health, wealth and happiness depend on a single blood test - dictating everything from bank loans to dating prospects – phlebotomy reigns supreme. So how far will people go to beat the system?

Ella Road’s debut play is a powerfully provocative vision of a dystopian future, questioning the value we place on one another, whether knowledge really is power, and if love truly can conquer all. It is brought to Radio 3 following two triumphant runs at London's Hampstead Theatre.

Cast:

Bea - Jade Anouka
Aaron - Rory Fleck Byrne

Nan Shepherd's River: The Dee

An elemental journey into the heart of the Cairngorms following in the footsteps of Nan Shepherd.

The writer and poet Nan Shepherd spent all her life living in the outskirts of Aberdeen in the north east of Scotland close to the River Dee. She had a deep passion for the hills and spent much of her free time exploring the mountains of the Cairngorms. She wrote her iconic love letter to these wild places 'The Living Mountain' during the Second World War, but it lay untouched in a drawer until 1977 when it was finally published. In recent years, it has become one of the most celebrated pieces of nature writing ever to be written.

Nan describes the watercourses of the Cairngorm massif in incredible detail, including her beloved Dee which she followed to its source close to the top of Britain's third highest mountain, Braeriach. Producer Helen Needham undertakes that journey and captures the sounds of the places Nan writes about with readings from 'The Living Mountain'.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000vgtv)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

The Trailblazer

Donald Macleod explores five aspects of Satie. Today, meet the innovative and influential composer Ravel dubbed “a precursor of genius” and Cage termed simply “indispensable”.

On Satie’s death in July 1925, the Musical Times pronounced that he had written “little of real importance in itself”, yet grudgingly acknowledged that “his influence on modern French music was considerable”. The obit writer was probably taking his cue from Ravel, whose support for Satie, nine years his senior but still, up until that point, languishing in obscurity, had taken concrete form in January 1911, when he put on a concert in Satie’s honour at a fashionable new venue in the eighth arrondissement of Paris. On that occasion, Ravel paid homage to the older composer’s “inventor’s mind par excellence” and praised the manner in which he had opened up paths “to new fields of experiment”. From this point on, Satie ceased to be a kind of musical satnav for other composers; now he was on the map himself.

New Generation Thinkers

Battlefield Finds

Gold fob seals, Sheffield silver, Mesolithic stone tools - these were some of the discoveries detailed in the 28 papers, books and pamphlets published by a soldier turned archaeologist who began looking at what you might find in the soil in the middle of a World War I battlefield. In her Essay, Seren Griffiths traces the way Francis Buckley used his training for military intelligence to shape the way he set about digging up and recording objects buried both in war-torn landscapes of France and then on the Yorkshire moors around his home.

Producer: Torquil MacLeod

Dr Seren Griffiths teaches at Manchester Metropolitan University and is involved in a project to use new scientific dating techniques to write the first historical narrative for two thousand years of what was previously 'prehistoric' Neolithic and Bronze Age Britain and Ireland. She has also organised public events at the excavations she co- directs at Bryn Celli Ddu in North Wales and you can hear her talking about midsummer at a Neolithic monument in an episode of Free Thinking.

Erik Satie (1866-1925)

The Humourist

Donald Macleod explores five aspects of Satie. Today, his sharp, quirky, magical, satirical, absurdist sense of humour, which he once credited to Cromwell and Christopher Columbus.

Satie’s humour permeated everything he did – his music, his performance indications, his correspondence, his dress-sense, the whole tenor of his life. When asked to write a few biographical lines about himself for his new publisher, Eduard Demets, he included the insight: “Before I compose a piece, I walk around it several times, accompanied by myself.” On publication of his Sports et divertissements (Sports and amusements) he advised the pianist to turn each page “with a tolerant thumb and a smile”. His score for Parade, a collaboration with Jean Cocteau, Leonid Massine and Pablo Picasso that became his greatest succès de scandale, included parts for bouteillophone (a row of fifteen tuned bottles), revolver-shots, two sirens, a lottery wheel, “splashy puddles” and a typewriter. Music critic Jean Poueigh gave an unflattering review of the première; Satie responded by calling him “an arse”, for which he received a fine, a sentence of eight days in prison, and, so far, more than a century’s worth of excellent publicity.

Simon Rattle conducts the LSO

Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra perform a special strings concert with and for freelance musicians, celebrating the uniquely vital role freelancers play in Britain's musical life and drawing attention to the devastating impact the last year of pandemic has had on the freelance profession.

Government restrictions have reduced the number of concerts and necessitated smaller numbers of socially-distanced musicians on stage, so this configuration of the Orchestra made up of 40 LSO members and 30 freelance 'extras' symbolises both a commitment to freelancers and a hope for a better future. The concert marks the first time a large number of extras have played with the LSO since March 2020.

The commitment to freelancers is literally at the foundation of the LSO, formed over a century ago by a renegade group of musicians whose freelance status in the Queen's Hall Orchestra was threatened: to this day, the LSO is a collective of freelance musicians.

The concert, recorded last month at LSO St Luke's and introduced by Martin Handley, includes two 20th-century classics of the string repertoire, Barber's moving Adagio and Vaughan William's other-worldly, ecstatic Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

Epistemology, or the theory of knowledge, was once considered one of the more abstract areas of philosophy, far removed from the concerns of every-day life. Now, philosophers like Miranda Fricker have developed epistemological concepts that can help us recognise, understand, and address areas where disparities in knowledge feed into wider social and political disadvantages, for example indigenous people articulating their relationship with land using Western legal concepts like ‘ownership’ or patients trying to describe symptoms not addressed by medical text books. Shahidha Bari talks with Miranda Fricker, Havi Carel and Constantine Sandis.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m000vhb5)
New Generation Thinkers

Colonial Papers

The First Congress of Black Writers and Artists in Paris 1956 staged debates about colonial history which are still playing out in the protests of the Gilets Noirs. New Generation Thinker Alexandra Reza leafs through the pages of the journal Présence Africaine, and picks out a short story by Ousmane Sembène tracing the dreams of a young woman from Senegal. Her experiences are echoed in a new experimental patchwork of writing by Nathalie Quintane called Les enfants vont bien. And what links all of these examples is the idea of papers, cahiers and identity documents.

Producer: Emma Wallace

Alexandra Reza researches post-colonial literature at the University of Oxford. You can hear her in a Free Thinking discussion about Aimé Césaire https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000nmxf
She also appears alongside Tariq Ali and Kehindre Andrews in a discussion Frantz Fanon's Writing https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000tdtn

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000vhg3)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Trinities

Donald Macleod explores five aspects of Satie. Today, his penchant for composing in threes, which has been likened to presenting three different views of the same sculpture.

Composers who write ‘suites’ tend to go for variety of tempo, texture and so on. One of Satie’s innovations was the mini-suite of three similar movements, of which the composer observed: “I invent an absolutely new form. The piece I wrote seems good to me. But might that not just be luck? If I compose a second and a third piece along the same lines but with different melodic ideas, and if these pieces are still good, then the form I have invented is good in itself.”

From the Jewishness of the New Testament to attempts by 19th- and early 20th-century British Jews to blend in to Christian England, Giles Fraser shows how the two religions have a vexed history but are also surprisingly interconnected in his new book called Chosen.

Miri Rubin, Professor of Medieval and Early Modern History at Queen Mary, University of London, and David Feldman, Professor of History and Director of the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism at Birkbeck, University of London, join Giles Fraser and Matthew Sweet to explore this relationship between Judaism and Christianity through medieval, early modern and modern history.

Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Satie through His Writings

Donald Macleod explores five aspects of Satie. Today, his copious, playful and highly idiosyncratic writings, which present a kaleidoscopic panoply of absurdist wit and humour.

Satie’s writings: there are the texts he set to music; texts which he specifies are “not to be read aloud”; bits of copy he wrote for bizarre adverts in his local newspaper; the publications of his private church; letters to friends – and enemies – some 400 of them; and strangest of all, thousands of beautifully calligraphed “personal advertisements” – little cards, discovered amidst the chaos and squalor of his room in the humdrum Parisian suburb of Arcueil after his death, carefully stored in old cigar-boxes. Many of them depict means of transport: five-masted schooners, streamlined “Transaerial” liners, elaborate gliders “made of steel”, magnificent airships – each describing, as Satie authority Ornella Volta put it, “elements of a looking-glass world”.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m000vjlm)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Satie’s Serious Side

Donald Macleod explores five aspects of Satie. Today, it’s goodbye clowning, hello classical simplicity, as Satie confesses himself to have become "very serious; too serious even”.

Perhaps it was the relentless onslaught of World War I that knocked some of the absurdity out of Satie. Whatever the reason, when, in 1916, Winnaretta Singer, heiress to the Singer sewing machine fortune, suggested to him that he should compose a work based on Plato’s account of the life and death of the philosopher Socrates, after initial reservations he became increasingly enamoured of the project: “Plato is a perfect collaborator, very gentle and never troublesome. It’s a dream! I’m swimming in happiness.”

FRI 22:00 The Verb (m000vjlz)
Writing Technology - Experiments in Living

When technology is almost invisible, woven into the texture of our social lives, thinking and time - how do we keep writing about it in a way which makes it visible, and which allows us to keep thinking about the role we want it to play? Ian McMillan is joined by comedian and actress Isy Suttie, political analyst Nanjala Nyabola, and communications lecturer Dr Paul Taylor (who eschews social networks).


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m000vjm1)
New Generation Thinkers

In Praise of Flatness

Why are mountains linked with uplifting feelings? Noreen Masud's Essay conjures the vast skies of Norfolk and the fantasy of hope felt by Kazuo Ishiguro's characters in his novel Never Let Me Go, the idea of openness described by Graham Swift in his fenland novel Waterland and the feeling of freedom felt by poet Stevie Smith who declared: "I like … flatness. It lifts the weight from the nerves and the mind."

Producer: Luke Mulhall

Dr Noreen Masud teaches literature at Durham University. You can hear her exploring aphorisms in this Sunday Feature https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000rtxb and debating Dada in this Free Thinking discussion https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000k9ws
She is a New Generation Thinker on the scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select ten academics each year who turn their research into radio.


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m000twxb)
Lute Junction

For one night only, Late Junction becomes Lute Junction as we explore sounds created on instruments from the extensive lute family. Jennifer Lucy Allan leads our whistlestop tour, sharing pieces from the Renaissance to the present day from all corners of the globe. There’ll be carnatic music performed with the Indian vina and Xylouris White’s meditative repetitions on the Cretan lute as well as sounds by the panduri that accompanies traditional polyphonic singing in Georgia. There’ll be experiments on the Chinese pipa accompanied by field recordings from duo Southeast of Rain, and transportative rituals from Gnawa legend Maalem Mahmoud Gania’s guembri, a three-stringed bass lute.

It won’t all be lute-shaped though, Elsewhere there'll be new releases from Jamaican collective Equiknoxx’s Gavsborg and his joyous living-room collages to traditional Yiddish songs reinterpreted by experimental cellist Francesca Ter-Berg.
