LISTED TIMES ARE GMT

A Word About Timings

All timings are listed in both Greenwich Mean Time and Eastern Daylight Time. Europe and North America are both on Daylight Time. For those of you who live in other time zones, you will need to make a calculation to derive the time of an event where you live. In North America subtract four (4) hours (from GMT) for the Eastern Time Zone, five (5) hours for the Central Time Zone, and six (6) hours for the Mountain Time Zone. Subtract seven (7) hours for the Pacific Time Zone, eight (8) hours for Alaska, and nine (9) hours for Hawaii. In UK, Ireland and Portugal add one (1) hour to GMT. In most of the rest of Europe add one (2) hours (some Eastern European countries are three (3) hours ahead of GMT). In the Southern Hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand are on Standard Time (Australia is 11 hours ahead of GMT; New Zealand is 13 hours ahead of GMT).

For those in the United States, it is useful to keep in mind that broadcasts in the evening hours often appear in the NEXT day's listings because they occur in the small hours in GMT time, which is our primary reference in the following listings.

For more information on time zone calculations, double click the time display on the lower right of your screen (if you are using a PC) to display the Time Zone tab, then click on the drop-down menu for a full list of time zones and their relationships to Greenwich Mean Time. You may also let the TIME CONVERTER do the calculations for you.

Evening at the Opera: Peter Shimkin, Schwanda the Bagpiper, music by Jaromír Weinberger to a Czech libretto by Miloš Kareš. Peter tells us the opera is “a comedy about a baritone Czech folk musician lured into sin by a charming tenor scoundrel who has two beautiful arias. Things end happily when Schwanda is rescued from the Devil in a card game. The romantic score, includes the Pop concert favorite Polka and Fugue. You owe it to yourself to hear this rarity; to my ears better than Smetana's Bartered Bride.”
Once a month, we program a complete opera, selecting a different recording for each act, and we welcome additional listener suggestions from the discography. During each program, we welcome listener calls at 203-268-9667 for requests and comments (4 hrs.)

SPECIAL PROGRAM: BR-KLASSIK - KONZERTABEND
Bamberger Symphoniker
Symphonisches, Oratorium oder Kammermusik am Abend - von Montag bis Freitag um 20.05 Uhr auf BR-KLASSIK

Beide haben zumal auf dem Terrain der Historischen Aufführungspraxis einen international großen Namen, und beide verbindet seit Jahren eine enge künstlerische Zusammenarbeit: Die russische Star-Sopranistin Julia Lezhneva, der die New York Times eine „engelsgleiche“ Stimme und The Guardian eine „makellose Technik“ attestierten, und der exzellente italienische Flötist und Dirigent Giovanni Antonini, Mitbegründer und Leiter des Originalklang-Ensembles „Il Giardino Armonico“ und als Gastdirigent auch jenseits der Alte-Musik-Szene rund um die Welt unterwegs. Sängerin und Dirigent sind auch dem fränkischen Musikleben verbunden: Julia Lezhneva als regelmäßige Gastsolistin beim Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival, Giovanni Antonini als regelmäßiger Gastdirigent der Bamberger Symphoniker. Bei denen waren die beiden Anfang März gemeinsam zu Gast. Im Zentrum des Programms: die so berühmte wie beliebte Koloratur-Motette „Exsultate, jubilate“ von Mozart sowie zwei großen Opernarien von Rossini - das seelenvolle Klagelied „Assisa a‘ piè d’un salice“ aus „Otello“ und die virtuose Bravourarie „Tanti affetti in tal momento“ aus „La Donna del Lago“. Zum festlichen Entree erklang eine der Pariser Symphonien von Haydn - die „Nr. 85“ in B-Dur, der ein Verleger den Beinamen „La Reine“ gab, weil wohl Marie-Antoinette eine besondere Vorliebe für das Werk hegte. Zum perfekten Finish dann Mendelssohns spritzige „Italienische Symphonie“, schöpferischer Reflex der „Kavalierstour“ des Komponisten, die ihn 1830 durch Italien bis hinunter nach Neapel führte.

Leitung: Giovanni Antonini
Solistin: Julia Lezhneva, Sopran
Joseph Haydn: Sinfonie Nr. 85 B-Dur - "La Reine"; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: "Exsultate jubilate", KV 165; Gioacchino Rossini: "Otello", Romanze von der Weide aus dem 3. Akt; "La Donna del lago", Arie der Elena aus dem 2. Akt; Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Sinfonie Nr. 4 A-Dur - "Italienische"

SPECIAL PROGRAM: Berlioz's Damnation of Faust
Radio 3 in Concert

What would you trade for your wildest dreams? Young Faust makes a wicked bargain, but he has one hell of a time finding out the price. Berlioz’s opera The Damnation of Faust caused a scandal in 1846, and it’s still just as outrageous and as entertaining. Kazuki Yamada celebrates 50 years of the CBSO Chorus with the work they sang in their very first concert – and tonight the Devil really does have all the best tunes!

Berlioz called The Damnation of Faust a dramatic legend, inspired by a translation of Goethe's dramatic poem "Faust". The nature of its travelogue form and cosmic perspective make it an extreme challenge to stage. Berlioz himself was eager to see the work staged, but once he did, he conceded that the production techniques of his time were not up to the task of bringing the work to dramatic life. Most of the work's fame has come through concert performances like tonight's.

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is joined by tenor Pene Pati in the title role, with mezzo-soprano Grace Durham as Marguerite, baritone Nahuel di Piero as Mephistopheles and bass Jonathan Lemalu as the student Brander.

Recorded at Symphony Hall, Birmingham on 13th April.

Presented by Elizabeth Alker.
