SUN The Pulitzer-Prize-winning American composer John Adams is SUN one of the world's most successful contemporary composers. SUN His best-known works, often on contemporary or controversial SUN subject-matter, include the operas 'Nixon in China', based SUN on Richard Nixon's epoch-making 1972 meeting with the SUN Chinese leader Mao Tse Tung; 'The Death of Klinghoffer', SUN about the terrorist hijacking of the cruise liner Achille SUN Lauro and the murder of an elderly American passenger; and SUN Doctor Atomic (2005), which deals with Robert Oppenheimer SUN and the building of the first US atomic bomb. His 2002 SUN choral piece 'On the Transmigration of Souls' commemorates SUN the victims of the 9/11 attacks; while his minimalist SUN orchestral and ensemble works, such as 'Shaker Loops', 'The SUN Chairman Dances' and 'A Short Ride in a Fast Machine' have SUN entered the contemporary repertoire and earned him a wide SUN international audience. SUN SUN His own musical tastes encompass popular American SUN masterpieces such as Sousa's 'The Stars and Stripes SUN Forever', Duke Ellington's 'The Tattooed Bride' and the SUN Beach Boys' 'Good Vibrations' as well as a series of SUN extraordinary works written towards the end of composers' SUN lives: a late Beethoven string quartet; Schubert's last SUN great piano sonata; Hagen's monologue from Act One of SUN Wagner's opera 'Gotterdammerung', and Debussy's elusive SUN ballet score 'Jeux'.

The SUN Airs de Cour developed in the mid 16th century from a SUN madrigalian form of word setting - one featuring several, SUN unaccompanied voices - into a song, more typically for solo SUN voice with lute accompaniment. Unlike the famous lute songs SUN in England, which appeared at about the same time, from the SUN likes of John Dowland and Thomas Campion, the French songs SUN have their own unique musical and poetic quality. They were SUN hugely popular at the French court, even though their model SUN was often drawn from the popular, Parisian street music of SUN the day. SUN SUN Airs de Cour were prevalent between 1570 and 1650, during SUN which time they fragmented and developed into several SUN different types, reflecting a variety of subjects in their SUN texts. Eventually these songs paved the way for a technique SUN of word setting that put in motion the creation of French SUN opera. SUN SUN In this programme, which forms part of a weekend of Early SUN Music Show's focusing on music from renaissance France, SUN Catherine Bott looks at the background to the genre, and SUN examines the different emerging types of song, with examples SUN from CD featuring composers such as Pierre Guedron, Etienne SUN Moulinié, Gabriel Bataille, Antoine Boesset and Jacques du SUN Buisson.

SUN SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature b00sbc1r (Listen) SUN The Pleasure Telephone SUN SUN The remarkable story of the use of the early telephone to SUN relay live entertainment and news direct to subscribers' SUN homes in the late 19th/early 20th century. SUN SUN The gasps of admiration at Alexander Graham Bell's 1876 SUN invention of the telephone had barely died away before the SUN new medium was being seen not just as a means of SUN conversation but as an instrument for relaying live music. SUN As soon as 1881, live performances from two Paris opera SUN houses were being transmitted to a great electrical exhibition. SUN SUN Opera was to have an honoured place in SUN entertainment-by-telephone history - in London, for example, SUN Covent Garden performances could be accessed live in private SUN homes, gentlemen's clubs and hotels. In the USA, subscribers SUN were 'taught' operas by an interweaving of spoken libretto SUN and recordings of arias. SUN SUN However, The Pleasure Telephone also looks at the breadth of SUN entertainment offered via the telephone by companies in the SUN UK, Hungary, France and the USA. In London, for example, the SUN Electrophone company offered a range of West End productions SUN to subscribers - including via coin-in-the-slot machines. SUN There was also live worship on offer from prominent churches. SUN SUN But the most astonishing developments took place in SUN Budapest, where the Telefon Hirmondo company offered what we SUN would fully recognise as a radio station - including a full SUN daily schedule of up-to-the-minute news of all kinds. SUN SUN The Pleasure Telephone tracks down key locations and various SUN items of authentic equipment - visiting the Opera Comique in SUN Paris, and in the UK the Science Museum, the Amberley SUN Working Museum in Sussex, the Palace Theatre in London and SUN the Museum of London, which owns an original Electrophone SUN table at which subscribers sat to listen via special headsets. SUN SUN Presenter: Broadcaster and journalist Edward Seckerson has a SUN prominent internet presence as an interviewer and podcast SUN creator. SUN SUN Among the contributors to The Pleasure Telephone are John SUN Liffen of the Science Museum, communications historians Tim SUN Crook, Neil Johannesen and Sean Street, Royal Opera House SUN archivist Francesca Franchi and music journalist Patrick SUN O'Connor, who died suddenly during the making of this programme. SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00sbc1t (Listen) SUN The Art of Friendship SUN SUN For all the thousands of poems on love, there are distinctly SUN fewer on what could be seen as love's neglected cousin - SUN friendship. And yet friendship is as common to the human SUN experience as love, and probably just as necessary. SUN How should we make friends, keep friends, lose them...? What SUN happens to friendships as we get older? Do men and women see SUN friendship in the same way? What is the true nature of SUN friendship - and is it all it's sometimes cracked up to be? SUN SUN Francis Bacon, writing in 1597, has what seems a pretty SUN modern take on why friends are necessary – they can keep you SUN sane, and yet as Auden points out, the language of SUN friendship, though easy at first, is very difficult to speak SUN well. George Herbert feels that a friend should be a SUN soul-mate, one who can see into your innermost heart, and SUN cites Christ and John, David and Jonathan. There is the SUN great classical friendship of Theseus and Pirithous, former SUN sworn enemies, as told by Plutarch. . And yet there are SUN those who feel that friendship is a much more ordinary thing SUN – Ruskin makes no great demands of his friends, nor does D H SUN Lawrence – “I like him. What else is there?”. Thoreau doubts SUN that the model of the great classical friendship exists at SUN all in his time, and Ogden Nash goes as far as to feel that SUN actually, foes, at a distance, are a lot less bother than a SUN friend in need. SUN SUN And can you be friends without actually meeting? Nadhezda SUN von Meck, Tchaikovsky’s patroness and dedicatee of his 4th SUN symphony, certainly thought perhaps it was safer not to meet SUN her hero. He thought she was probably right… SUN SUN John Clare and Benjamin Disraeli chronicle the joys and SUN sometimes stresses of schoolboy friendships, mistily SUN remembered in later years. And although not about grand SUN passions, the poem written by Edward Thomas about the walks SUN he shared with his friend Robert Frost, and Robert Graves’ SUN poem on the ultimate binding of a friendship in death are SUN deeply affecting. Finally, Derek Walcott rages against the SUN loss of his friends, and strives to keep them in his SUN memory, just as they were, faults and all. SUN SUN On the musical side, I have chosen movements from Ravel’s SUN “Tombeau de Couperin”, each of which were dedicated to SUN friends that he lost in the Great War, although the music SUN itself is not doleful. The great anthem by Weelkes is an SUN evocative setting of David’s lament for the loss of his SUN friend Jonathan. And the famous duet from The Pearl Fishers SUN tells of two men determined to set their friendship above SUN rivalry for the love of the same woman. Brahms’ Double SUN Concerto was partly written as a gesture of reconciliation SUN with his great friend, the violinist Joachim, with whom he SUN had fallen out, and his Scherzo in C minor is part of a SUN curious example of a sonata written in a collaboration SUN between friends – Brahms, Schumann and Dietrich, again as a SUN tribute to Joachim.

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b00sbc6l (Listen) MON Verismo, Episode 1 MON MON When it comes to Italian opera, the term verismo promises MON tales of high drama, love, lust, violence and death. From MON the anguish of Elisabeth in Verdi's Don Carlos, to the MON ghastly murder that draws the curtains on Puccini's Il MON tabarro, this is a week of passion, ecstasy and MON heartbreaking tragedy, realised in sumptuous musical MON technicolour by the grand masters of the genre. There's a MON feast of music by Puccini, Leoncavallo and Mascagni, along MON with a series of lesser known but equally colourful MON characters including Cilea, made famous by Enrico Caruso, MON Ponchielli, probably best known for the comedic realisation MON of Dance of the Hours in Disney's Fantasia and Catalani, MON whose best known aria was used in the French film "Diva". MON There's even an aria from an alternative Bohème, written by MON Leoncavallo at the same time as Puccini's big hit. MON MON But it's not as easy as it might seem to work out why these MON composers get lumped together. Musically speaking at least, MON verismo is a term that's probably got more exceptions than MON rules, inviting debate to the point where some academics MON have stated it should be "handled with great care.if at all"! MON Happily ignoring that particular advice, as part of the MON BBC's opera season in 2010, the Italian opera authority MON Roger Parker joins Donald Macleod to map out the ways in MON which "verismo" can be applied to opera from Verdi to the MON twentieth century. MON MON Monday's programme begins in the 1870s, in the aftermath of MON a newly unified Italy. Responding to the prevailing artistic MON restlessness, composers were keen to break away from the MON operatic conventions of the past and found inspiration in an MON avant-garde literary movement headed up by Giovanni Verga. MON It was against this backdrop that the grand old man of MON Italian opera, Verdi looked to Paris and grand opera, MON wishing to produce something new and distinctly modern. Soon MON enough a tide of younger composers rushed to follow in his MON wake. MON MON Giacomo Puccini MON Tosca (Act 1) Ah Finalmente!

Mascagni's TUE Cavalleria rusticana is a tale of rivalry and infidelity, TUE set in a village in Sicily. Its unprecedented popularity TUE generated a rush of composers interested in producing their TUE own takes on this new style of musical drama. Two years TUE later that included Leoncavallo who produced "I Pagliacci", TUE an opera that's forever linked with Cavalleria rusticana as TUE part of the double bill popularly known as Cav and Pag TUE With Donald Macleod and Roger Parker.

TUE TUE Nussbaum has made her name as a defender of progressive TUE contemporary values supported by the classical authors like TUE Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. She famously took the stand TUE in a legal case defending anti-discrimination laws for gays TUE - and to the criticism of some scholars, cited the classics TUE in her arguments. She's worked with Nobel Prize Economist TUE Amartya Sen to advance ideas about the "capabilities" in TUE developing societies, rather than just GDP or freedoms. And TUE she's probed the idea of disgust and shame as moral drivers. TUE And at the same time she has not been afraid to attack TUE feminists who she thinks have strayed too far from the realm TUE of mainstream politics. She's now a frequent commentator on TUE some of the big debates about gender and law in American TUE society. TUE TUE Martha Nussbaum's latest book is Not For Profit: Why TUE Democracy Needs the Humanities.

THU THU 19:50 Twenty Minutes b00sbfps (Listen) THU Concerning Franklin and His Gallant Crew THU THU It was on this day, 20th May in 1845, that Lord Franklin's THU ships the Erebus and Terror cleared the mouth of the Thames THU on their voyage to find the Northwest Passage. A traditional THU song recounts the story 'of Franklin and his gallant crew' THU and through this Julian May explores Franklin's fateful, THU indeed fatal, voyage, and reveals how folk song, as well as THU beautiful and inspiring, can be history. THU THU "With a hundred seamen he sailed away THU To the frozen ocean in the month of May THU To seek that passage around the pole THU Where we poor sailors do sometimes go." THU THU The ships were lost (the wrecks are still to be located) - THU with all hands.They were locked in the Arctic ice. THU Eventually the crew abandoned them and headed overland to THU Great Slave Lake, almost 1,000 miles away. They all perished THU on the journey; before they died they resorted to THU cannibalism. THU THU "Through cruel hardship his men did go THU His ship on mountains of ice was drove THU Where the Eskimo in his skin canoe THU Was the only one who ever came through." THU THU Recent discoveries have revealed that they may have been THU early victims of modern food packaging. Franklin's THU expedition was the first to rely on tinned food and it THU appears their supplies were shoddily manufactured and sealed THU with lead solder, which poisoned them. The French navigator, THU Aubert Bellot, set out in search of Franklin, and THU disappeared too. Lady Franklin also paid for an expedition THU to search for her husband, but that failed and what really THU happens remains a mystery. THU THU "And now my burden it gives me pain THU For my long lost Franklin I'd cross the main THU Ten thousand pounds would I freely give THU To know on earth that my Franklin do live." THU THU Julian May's interest was kindled when he heard someone THU singing the song which tells the story with extraordinary THU vividness and accuracy. He went on to research both the THU history and the song itself. The narrator is aboard a ship THU and dreams 'concerning Franklin and his gallant crew'. Some THU think the author was Lady Franklin herself. The song is sung THU by many people - for instance England's foremost folk THU musician, Martin Carthy - and it has inspired artists in THU other disciplines, such as Michael Donaghy, who incorporates THU it in a poem. THU THU On the anniversary of their setting sail Julian May traces THU story of Franklin and his gallant crew story through the THU song, via Greenwich, where there is a monument to Bellot, THU the National Maritime Museum, which recently mounted an THU exhibition about the Northwest passage that included items THU recovered from Franklin's expedition, and an interview with THU Martin Carthy, who sang the song that so intrigued him. THU THU "In Baffin bay where the whale-fish blow THU The fate of Franklin, no man may know; THU The fate of Franklin, no tongue may tell, THU Where Franklin along with his sailors does dwell." THU THU Produced and presented by Julian May. THU THU 20:10 Performance on 3 b00sbfpv (Listen) THU Shchedrin, Tchaikovksy, Rachmaninov, Part 2 THU THU LIVE - Presented by Catherine Bott.
