Sound Affects

Tuesday 5 May
10.30-11.30pm BBC RADIO 2 (Schedule Addition 22 April)

As more and more time is spent communicating "virtually", Cerys Matthews explores the power of music to bring people together.

In a world where nearly every piece of recorded music is available instantly, people are searching for live experiences and unique events to share. DJ Pete Tong and Mixmag editor Nick De Cosemo tell Cerys about how digital downloading has revolutionised the live club scene. Despite the economic climate, new clubs are opening around the country and one enjoying huge popularity is Deaf Rave, playing bass-heavy and rhythmic tracks that clubbers feel when they dance.

But, what if the music stopped? KLF's Bill Drummond explains why he founded No Music Day. Now in its fifth year, it will next be observed on 21 November by the Austrian city of Linz, which will ban all music for 24 hours.

The programme also goes back to the basics of parent/child bonding where music, not speech, is the primary form of communication. Cerys hears from Jo Jingles founder Gill Thomas and Andrew Davenport, co-creator, writer and composer of In The Night Garden, the award-winning CBeebies programme for pre-school children.

Other contributors include composer Craig Armstrong and Dr Alexandra Lamont, Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Keele University.

COMPOSERS OF THE YEAR 2009
Composer Of The Week – Mendelssohn Ep 2/5

Bank Holiday Monday 4 to Friday 8 May
12.00noon-1.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Donald Macleod continues the story of two sibling prodigies whose lives took very different paths but whose music had much in common. As Felix's career is launched with his first masterpiece, sister Fanny is confined to domestic music-making at the Mendelssohn family home.

In 1825, by the time the 16-year-old Felix Mendelssohn had written his famous Octet, Fanny was pursuing a different path. She carried on composing and playing but her world was limited to the amateur music-making at the soirees held at the Mendelssohn family home. Felix, on the other hand, was encouraged to further his education, travel and meet influential figures who'd benefit his future career.

Donald introduces a group of Fanny's songs published under Felix's name, a string quartet inspired by a love song, two works written for Fanny's birthday and an extract from the operetta Felix wrote for his parents' silver wedding anniversary.

COMPOSERS OF THE YEAR 2009
Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert

Tuesday 5 May
1.00-2.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Soloists from the Orchestra Of The Age Of Enlightenment perform a selection of Mendelssohn's best-loved chamber music for wind and strings, across four concerts recorded in the Georgian splendour of St George's in Bristol, as part of BBC Radio 3's Mendelssohn anniversary celebrations.

The series opens with one of Mendelssohn's most popular works. The Octet For Strings in E Flat Major, Opus 20 was written by Mendelssohn at the tender age of 16, yet despite the youth of its composer, it is widely regarded as one of the masterpieces of string repertoire.

Radio 3's Chi-chi Nwanoku, also a founding member and principal double bass of the Orchestra Of The Age Of Enlightenment, joins the ensemble for two pieces by Rossini.

A Friend Of The Family Ep 1/3

New series
Tuesday 5 to Thursday 7 May
3.30-3.45pm BBC RADIO 4

This series presents three new stories reflecting some unexpected ways in which modern families work.

In Phoebe Gibson's Coming Round read by David Collins, broadcast on Tuesday, a serious accident throws two men together who hadn't previously met – Sue's first and second husbands. In time, several old wounds and resentments are aired, and begin to heal.

Wednesday's story is Just One Of The Girls by Chrissie Gittins read by Phyllida Nash. It explores a web of unusual but rewarding relationships. Rich and Dan are friends, united closely by the death of Dan's wife Milly, who had a very different sort of intimacy with Rich. It will take him some time to recover from her loss.

The final story on Thursday, Going To Ireland, is written and read by Frank Dunne. Marcia comes into the life of a tired writer to do his cleaning for him, with the unexpected bonus that she manages to clear his writer's block. However, there is an unforeseen price to be paid and Marcia's family is coming to collect.
