Discovering Music

Sunday 15 May
5.00-6.30pm BBC RADIO 3

Stephen Johnson hosts a round-the-table discussion about Mahler's monumental work, his Second Symphony, sometimes called the Resurrection.

Stephen is joined by three guests: Jeremy Barham, writer and editor of the Cambridge Companion to Mahler; Lesley Chamberlain, writer, critic and journalist, and author of the widely acclaimed book Nietzsche In Turin; and Colin Matthews, composer who collaborated with Dereyck Cooke on the performing version of Mahler's 10th Symphony.

Their discussion includes the social context of the work and Mahler's development as a symphonist, and also ideas about interpreting the death and resurrection theme of the symphony. The discussion is illustrated by short musical extracts, and the programme concludes with a recording of Mahler's tone-poem Totenfeier, which was later to become the first movement of the Second Symphony.

The First Time With Mick Jones

Sunday 15 May
12.00noon-1.00pm BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC

For many people The Clash were the greatest band of all time – they took the sprit and anger of the Sex Pistols and combined it with an idealism and passionate political righteousness that's never been matched. At the helm of the band were the late, great Joe Strummer and this week's guest – Mick Jones.

In the last episode of the series, Mick talks Matt Everitt through the history of his years with The Clash – the birth of their gang mentality, their love of musical experimentation and his eventual split from the group – while also looking back on his early life as a rock 'n' roller and the formation of the ground-breaking (and newly reformed) Big Audio Dynamite, as well as his work as a producer with bands including The Libertines and his experiences as a key member of Damon Albarn's multi-headed multimedia simian supergroup Gorillaz.

6 Mix

Sunday 15 May
8.00-10.00pm BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC

Dave Pearce meets house music pioneer Frankie Knuckles to discuss his four decades in dance. Knuckles began his career DJing soul and disco records alongside infamous selector Larry Levan in Manhattan. His reputation soon spread and he found himself playing at the Warehouse in Chicago in the mid Eighties, where his sets fusing bleeps, beats and bass – made with a drum machine bought from Derrick May – were credited with inventing an entire new genre of rhythmic music: house. Frankie went on to rework tracks by Alison Limerick and Electribe 101, and had hits with anthemic tunes including The Whistle Song and Your Love.

Frankie and Dave reminisce about the time they spent in New York during the early Nineties and how house music has developed since. Frankie also chooses a selection of music that has influenced and inspired him including tracks from The Stylistics, The Spinners, First Choice and Sounds Of Blackness.
