SAT SAT PIANO MAN: A LIFE OF JOHN OGDON SAT SAT From the start of his professional career John Ogdon was SAT recognised as a pianist of rare understanding and phenomenal SAT technical gifts. Able to play and memorize just about any SAT score at sight, tales of his near-impossible exploits at the SAT keyboard are legion. Yet Ogdon’s brilliance came at a cost - SAT he also suffered from severe mental instability. Ogdon’s SAT glory days, following his famed Tchaikovsky prize win in SAT 1962, came to a sudden end a decade later when he suffered a SAT series of mental breakdowns which led to him spending time SAT in and out of psychiatric wards. But through all this SAT suffering his commitment to his art remained undimmed and he SAT continued to give performances of tremendous beauty and SAT conviction right until his early death in 1989. Tom Service SAT talks to Charles Beauclerk, the author of a new biography of SAT Ogdon and the pianist Leslie Howard about the man who was SAT arguably the greatest British pianist of all time. SAT SAT NINA STEMME SAT SAT Swedish soprano Nina Stemme is regarded as one of the SAT foremost interpreters of Wagner performing today. Her SAT perfomances as Brunnhilde in the Ring and Isolde in Tristan SAT and Isolde have transfixed audiences around the world, just SAT as they did at last year’s Proms Ring cycle. But it’s not SAT just Wagner - she’s always sung Italian opera and has a SAT particular passion for Puccini and she also finds time to SAT indulge her passion for lieder. Tom met Stemme earlier this SAT week while she was in London for a Wigmore Hall recital and SAT spoke to her about her voice and how she has to adapt it SAT depending on the repertoire she’s performing and whether SAT she’s singing for 200 or 2000 people. SAT SAT ROYAL COLLEGE OF ORGANISTS AT 150 SAT SAT The Royal College of Organists was formed in 1864 by Richard SAT Limpus whose aim was to set up a body for the purpose of SAT elevating and advancing the professional status of SAT organists. At first the College concentrated on the work of SAT raising standards in the profession by developing and SAT administering the College examinations, as well as steadily SAT building up its Library collection. More recently these SAT activities have been augmented with an education and SAT outreach strand, which is known today as the RCO Academy SAT programme. SAT SAT As the RCO celebrates its 150 anniversary Tom asks Catherine SAT Ennis, the College’s President and Simon Williams, director SAT of the RCO Academy what challenges lie ahead and whether its SAT stringent examinations are still relevant in today’s organ SAT and choral world. We also hear from current students as they SAT prepare for the Colleges exams and courses.

An unlikely setting for an SAT Italian opera, but one that has a happy ending! It tells the SAT tale of Minnie, the bartender in the saloon whom all the SAT local men adore, and Dick Johnson alias Ramerrez, a SAT notorious bandit. Dick and Minnie fall in love on first SAT meeting, so much so that he vows to change his life as a SAT bandit. Puccini wrote the romantic leads for two great SAT singers: Enrico Caruso and Emmy Destin, but the roles in SAT this recording are sung by two contemporary great singers: SAT Nina Stemme and Jonas Kaufmann. Andrew McGregor is joined by SAT musicologist Alexandra Wilson, to discuss this performance SAT given last October at the Vienna State Opera, under SAT conductor Franz Welser-Möst.

SUN SUN 12:00 Private Passions b038542t (Listen) SUN Adam Nicolson SUN SUN Adam Nicolson has the privilege, and the burden, of an SUN extraordinary inheritance: Sissinghurst, that SUN quintessentially English house and garden created by his SUN grandparents Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West. In his SUN own right, he's the author of a series of highly esteemed SUN history books and television series, about the making of the SUN King James Bible, about the English gentry, and most SUN recently about 17th-century writers. But it's that SUN Sissinghurst connection which fascinates us all: growing up SUN with bohemian writers and artists, there must have been SUN music going on there all the time? Not at all - Adam reveals SUN that his family were musical philistines. His father hated SUN music because it moved him, and made him emotional - so for SUN an Englishman of that generation and class it was deeply SUN suspect. It's only in middle age that Adam is discovering SUN music, and he admits cheerfully that his musical taste is SUN 'dreadful'. He also talks about walking 6000 miles round SUN Europe, about his love for the Hebrides, and about his SUN disastrous 'open' marriage. Adam and his wife had a deal - SUN they were allowed to have two affairs a year, as long as SUN they were abroad. This too was the legacy of Sissinghurst, SUN and a father who urged him to have as many affairs as SUN possible. What followed was predictable, and messy, but with SUN a happy ending - as Adam's choice of music reveals.

The drama is ultimately based on the play Iphigenia SUN in Tauris by the ancient Greek dramatist Euripides which SUN deals with stories concerning the family of Agamemnon in the SUN aftermath of the Trojan War.

The filmic SUN output of the remarkable three-person association of SUN creative talents that is collectively known as 'Merchant SUN Ivory' has endured since the early 1960s. SUN SUN For The Sunday Feature, Laurence Scott re-assesses the SUN team's output. From their early success 'Shakespeare SUN Wallah', through the trio of big English hits - 'A Room with SUN a View', 'Howards End' and 'The Remains of the Day' - as SUN well as less popular, but equally stylish American and SUN French-based movies, Merchant Ivory pictures have always SUN combined visual sophistication with stupendous acting SUN talent. Yet despite their many triumphs, 'Merchant Ivory' SUN became for some critics a tainted brand, redolent of a sort SUN of big-house costume drama that epitomised all that was SUN wrong with British cinema. Why? And were the criticisms SUN fair? SUN SUN Merchant Ivory was a unique combination of cinema talents, SUN 'a three-person marriage' in the words of one of their SUN biggest stars, Helena Bonham-Carter: James Ivory directed, SUN his late partner Ismail Merchant produced, and most of the SUN films were written by the screenwriter and novelist Ruth SUN Prawer-Jhabvala. SUN SUN While he was in London recently preparing his latest film SUN Jim Ivory talked over three days with Laurence Scott, and SUN explored his lifetime of film-making. SUN SUN Also in the programme, alongside Helena Bonham-Carter whose SUN career was largely launched by the team, is veteran Indian SUN actress Madhur Jaffrey, who brought Jim and Ismail together SUN and starred in a number of their Indian films and novelist SUN and screenwriter Kazuo Ishiguro. Plus, the man who as a SUN schoolboy got Ivory and Merchant to star in his home movies SUN - we savour the broadcast premiere - and went on to run the SUN company, Richard Macrory.

MON John Field was considered the greatest pianist of his day, MON living an eccentric life in Russia, and admired across MON Europe by the likes of Hummel, Liszt, Schumann and Spohr. MON His talents as a pianist were renowned, and he taught many MON students including Glinka. During Chopin's early career, he MON was often asked if he was the pupil of John Field, which MON Chopin found flattering. Both composers developed enviable MON reputations as performers and composers, yet they both died MON relatively young due to illnesses they'd long suffered from. MON During the week, Donald Macleod will be exploring the legacy MON of both composers, and how Field may have influenced works MON later composed by Chopin. MON MON When asked what he thought of Chopin, the composer and MON pianist John Field remarked: "What has he written? Nothing MON but mazurkas." Field had at that time only heard early MON Chopin, such as the Mazurka no.1 in B flat major. However, MON as a young pianist and composer, Fryderyk Chopin soon MON started to make a name for himself, and after a command MON performance for the Tsar of Russia, was awarded with a MON diamond ring. MON MON Chopin entered the Warsaw Conservatoire, where he developed MON his skills further, composing works such as the Piano Trio MON in G minor. However, from early on there was an influence MON from the older composer John Field, which can be heard in MON Chopin's Nocturne no.7 in C sharp minor. MON MON John Field was born in Ireland almost 30 years before the MON birth of Chopin, and like Chopin he quickly made his name as MON a pianist, although Field's talent was encouraged rather MON harshly, with beatings from his father and grandfather. MON Field was soon composing little dance-like works, such as MON his Irish sounding Rondo on the theme, "Go to the Devil". MON Recognising Field's talent, his family soon moved to London MON where young John was apprenticed to Muzio Clementi, known to MON the French as 'The Pope of Musicians'. MON MON Field's apprenticeship required him to perform on regular MON occasions in Clementi's piano showrooms, encouraging MON prospective buyers to purchase an instrument. However, MON Field's reputation as a pianist was about to get a boost, MON with a performance in London at the age of about 17, of his MON first Piano Concerto no.1 in E flat major.

TUE TUE John Field was now quickly establishing himself as a piano TUE virtuoso in London, and was soon in demand for portrait TUE painters and medallists. One picture to have survived from TUE around 1800, shows Field to be sat, quill in hand, in the TUE very act of composing his early Sonata in A major for the TUE piano. These first sonatas Field dedicated to Clementi. TUE TUE Clementi planned a business trip to Paris, and then on to St TUE Petersburg, and Field journeyed with him. It was in Russia TUE that Field would make his home for the rest of his life, and TUE quickly established himself amongst the rich and TUE aristocratic. For these aristocratic circles, Field composed TUE a number of chamber works, including his Divertissement no.1 TUE in E major. TUE TUE Field now became so popular in both Moscow and St TUE Petersburg, that he had an apartment in both cities. He kept TUE his own servants and carriage, and often wouldn't turn up TUE for appointments and lessons, but instead enjoy himself with TUE friends drinking champagne, and smoking Havana cigars. TUE Russian music did influence some of the works Field went on TUE to compose, including his Variations on Kamarinskaya. TUE TUE The Kamarinskaya variations by Field proved to be a source TUE of inspiration to the younger composer Fryderyk Chopin, as TUE pianist Míceál O'Rourke demonstrates. This is evident in TUE Chopin's Variations in B flat on La ci darem la mano opus 2, TUE which marked the composer's arrival on an international TUE music stage. TUE TUE Chopin like Field, moved away from his native land, and both TUE composers went on to push the boundaries of piano playing TUE and writing. For Chopin, this is very evident in his TUE Ballades, such as Ballade no.1 in G minor.

TUE TUE 22:45 The Essay b0400lr6 (Listen) TUE Furniture - A Personal History of Movable Objects, Who's TUE Been Sitting in My Chair? Our Shadow Selves TUE TUE Are you sitting comfortably? Despite his bad posture, TUE novelist and academic Ian Sansom explores our complex TUE physical, mental and emotional relationship with the chair. TUE Chairs can symbolise who we are, like Ian's comfy old TUE overstuffed armchair, and in 'Goldilocks and the Three TUE Bears', the little bear asks 'Who's been sitting in my TUE chair?' which Ian reads as "Who am I?" Van Gogh painted two TUE empty chairs after his famous fall-out with Gauguin; Henry TUE Thoreau, out in his cabin at Walden Pond, had just three TUE chairs 'one for solitude, two for friendship, three for TUE society'. Ian has 26 chairs in total, but not a 'named TUE chair', which is the 'scholar's burnished throne'. Apart TUE from beds, we share more intimacy with chairs than with any TUE other piece of furniture, but often their symbolism is most TUE powerful when empty, because Ian believes that empty chairs TUE always imply people.

WED WED By around 1830, Chopin was now living in Vienna, and it was WED during this period that he composed some of his early WED nocturnes, including his Nocturne in E flat major, opus 9 WED no.2. Pianist Míceál O'Rourke explores in conversation with WED Donald Macleod, how this early nocturne by Chopin bears a WED direct relationship with the nocturnes of John Field. WED WED This relationship extended past the nocturnes to the WED orchestration of larger works. Again demonstrating from the WED piano, Míceál O'Rourke explores the relationship between WED Field's Piano Concerto no.2, and the Piano Concerto no. 2 by WED Chopin. WED WED Chopin found living in Vienna quite difficult, and decided WED to up sticks and move to Paris. He soon developed quite a WED reputation for himself, and was in demand as a teacher for WED aristocratic pupils. In fact, this enterprise made him so WED much money that he was able to afford a new flat and even a WED servant. It was around this early period in Paris that WED Chopin fell in love with one of his pupils, Maria Wodzinska, WED but the relationship came to nothing. Chopin did compose a WED number of romantic songs during this period, including My WED Darling, and The Ring. WED WED The course of love for both Chopin and Field tended to be a WED rather bumpy ride. For John Field, he was now married to one WED of his talented pupils, Percherette. However, men found her WED coquettish nature very attractive, and Field himself was WED very flirtatious and fickle. 1815 saw the birth of Field's WED illegitimate son, Leon, and also the first sketches of WED Field's challenging Fifth Piano Concerto.

THU THU By around 1819, things were not looking good for John THU Field's marriage. Field and his wife were not well suited, THU and were also incredible flirts. It was around this time in THU St Petersburg that they performed a piano duet in a concert THU together, which could have been Field's Rondeau in G for THU four hands. In that same year, Madame Field was pregnant THU with the couple's first child, yet by the time their son THU Adrien was eighteen months, the marriage was over. THU THU By 1822, Field was at the height of his fame, and many THU musicians flocked to see and hear him perform. The pianist THU and composer Hummel was in Moscow where Field now lived, and THU was determined to meet Field. Pianist Míceál O'Rourke in THU conversation with Donald Macleod, discusses how Field was THU viewed by his contemporaries during this period. This was a THU time when Field was also enjoying himself playing the viola THU in amateur string ensembles, and for one of these occasions, THU he may have composed his Quintet in A flat major. THU THU Frederyk Chopin was also at the height of his career by THU 1836, and like the older composer John Field, he also had a THU very complicated relationship, which by the standards of the THU time, would have been seen as scandalous and socially THU problematic. Chopin and George Sand decided to get away from THU it all, and escaped to Majorca. This holiday was not what THU they expected, with appalling weather, and Chopin's health THU deteriorating. During this time, he was able to work on a THU number of pieces for piano, including his set of 24 preludes THU opus 28. THU THU From 1839, now back in France, Chopin started to complete THU what would be his second piano sonata. This work confused THU many musicians at the time. Robert Schumann wrote that the THU four movements were like "four unruly children".

In today's In Tune - broadcast to launch the BBC's THU "Eighteenth Century Britain: Majesty, Music and Mischief" THU season - Suzy Klein brings something of that period to life. THU Given before an invited audience, Suzy is joined by the THU acclaimed Early Opera Company and their director Christian THU Curnyn. Other guests include the folk singer Nancy Kerr with THU some music reflecting the subtle fusion of popular and art THU music styles from the time; and there's a chance to find out THU more about Kedleston itself - its sumptuous rooms and THU furnishings, neo-classical architecture, and flamboyant THU setting.

FRI FRI By the mid 1840s, Chopin and George Sand's relationship had FRI come to a stormy end. The last time he saw Sand was in 1848, FRI although he always kept a lock of her hair. During this same FRI period, Chopin was trying to finish a sonata for a friend of FRI his, the cellist Auguste Franchomme. Chopin wrote a little, FRI and crossed out a lot, but eventually completed his Sonata FRI in G minor for cello and piano, opus 65. FRI FRI In 1848, revolution had broken out in Paris, and Chopin's FRI aristocratic friends and pupils had fled. Chopin himself FRI made a trip to London and Scotland, but the heavily-polluted FRI London air did nothing for his consumptive lungs, and Chopin FRI returned to Paris. By October 1849, Chopin had died and was FRI buried in a grave between Bellini and Cherubini. The final FRI nocturne Chopin composed two years before his death, was the FRI Nocturne in C minor no.21. FRI FRI The composer and pianist John Field was also very ill FRI towards the end of his life, and like Chopin in a bid to FRI drum up more support, left his home and travelled to London FRI and then toured other parts of Europe. Field gave his first FRI Paris concert in 1832, performing his Piano Concert no.7. FRI Míċeál O'Rourke discusses with Donald Macleod how this work FRI was not only very challenging for the ailing composer, but FRI also now out of date, and didn't leave a great impression on FRI Liszt and Chopin who were present in the audience. Field FRI made his way back to Russia, and was by this time very ill. FRI He died in 1837. FRI FRI Pianist Míceál O'Rourke in discussion with Donald Macleod, FRI concludes the week talking about the legacies of both Chopin FRI and Field. Chopin was a remarkable pianist, but none of his FRI students went on to be great performers. Field on the other FRI hand taught many notable pianists, and can be seen as the FRI Father Figure to the Russian piano tradition.

The Leader of the Ulster FRI Orchestra, Tamás Kocsis is soloist in Shostakovich's Violin FRI Concerto No. 1 FRI FRI Live from the Ulster Hall, Belfast FRI Presented by John Toal FRI FRI Dvorák: Othello FRI Shostakovich: Violin Concerto No. 1 FRI FRI 20.40 FRI During the interval, music selected by tonight's soloist and FRI conductor. FRI FRI 21:00 FRI Brahms: Symphony No. 4 FRI FRI Tamás Kocsis, violin FRI Ulster Orchestra FRI Alexander Vedernikov, conductor FRI FRI In the second half of 1891-just as he turned 50, Dvorák FRI composed a set of three concert overtures which were to FRI reflect what he referred to as "the nature theme." The FRI sequence would depict the three most intense moments of FRI human existence: the experience of nature, joy in being FRI alive, and the theme love and with it the pangs of jealousy. FRI Tonight's Overture, Othello represents the love theme and it FRI is the last of this set which also included In Natures's FRI Realm and Carnival. Shostakovich composed his Violin FRI Concerto No 1 during 1947/48, he completed on the heels of FRI the Zhdanov Decree, which condemned Shostakovich along with FRI many of his composer colleagues for "formalist perversions FRI and antidemocratic tendencies in music, alien to the Soviet FRI people and its artistic tastes." FRI Shostakovich might have been concerned about releasing the FRI concerto at that time and it was published in 1956 and FRI dedicated to the great violinist, David Oistrakh who worked FRI with the composer on the work and who gave the first FRI performance in 1955, with the Leningrad Philharmonic under FRI Yevgeny Mravinsky. FRI Brahms composed the last of his four symphonies during the FRI summers of 1884 and 1885, which he spent at the small town FRI of Mürzzuschlag, in the Austrian mountains. "I wonder if it FRI will ever have an audience," Brahms wrote from Mürzzuschlag FRI to Hans von Bülow, the conductor preparing the first FRI performance. "I rather fear it has been influenced by this FRI climate, where the cherries never ripen." Symphony No. 4 is FRI one of the "classics" of the 19th century symphony and FRI fittingly ends with a mighty passacaglia. FRI FRI Following the concert, music from last weekend's French FRI Institute festival 'It's all about piano', featuring top FRI students from the Royal College of Music and the Paris FRI Conservatoire.

FRI FRI 22:45 The Essay b0400lrd (Listen) FRI Furniture - A Personal History of Movable Objects, An FRI Intimate History of the Bed FRI FRI Novelist and academic Ian Sansom explores the symbolism of FRI beds in literature, art and film, and asks what beds reveal FRI about human nature. 'Beds are where we are most physical, FRI most elemental, and where we experience the great highs and FRI lows of life. Everything significant that happens to us FRI tends to take place in bed'. Certainly many of history's FRI greatest thinkers and writers are thought to have been FRI inspired in bed; G.K. Chesterton wished he had a pencil long FRI enough to write on the ceiling while lying down, Milton is FRI said to have written Paradise Lost in bed, and Truman Capote FRI started his day in bed with coffee, mint tea, sherry and FRI martinis. Ian thinks the bed is where we are most ourselves FRI 'the place where you cannot hide', and perhaps we try to FRI avoid spending too much time there because we fear what it FRI signifies - 'the never-ending lie-in to come'.

He leads a 30 strong vocal ensemble FRI along with his son Soane Ngutukoula Tatuila Pusiaki, a FRI practitioner of Tonga's most famous instrument the FRI noseflute. This deeply moving form of music-making has been FRI preserved since the 1800s, and Alusa's grandfather used to FRI perform for Queen Salote of Tonga. FRI FRI Heritage Track from Maldives: FRI Mueena Mohamed is the Number One table tennis player in FRI Maldives.
