The History of Deutsche Grammophon The third of six programmes celebrating the centenary of the Deutsche Grammophon record label. World War to Cold War: 1945-63
The years 1945 to 1963 were as crucial to Deutsche Grammophon as they were to Germany as a whole. As the nation faced ruin - both political and financial - Deutsche
Grammophon's presence was crucial in the rebuilding of Germanic culture and society. From postwar recordings of Bach's organ works by Helmut Walcha to the death of Ferenc Fricsay in 1963, DG released a stream of classic recordings. Stephen Johnson visits Berlin, where, in 1945, following permission granted by the American High
Command, Deutsche Grammophon resumed production of 78s on the six presses that had not been destroyed in the air raids. He looks at the history of the company up to 1963, when the partition of Berlin opened another dramatic chapter in German history.

SOUNDING THE CENTURY
Continuing the BBC Scottish
Symphony Orchestra's Nielsen symphony cycle. Victor Bendix said of Nielsen's Symphony No 5 in a letter to the composer in 1922: "This is dirty trenches music, an impudent fraud, this clenched fist in the face of a snobbish, titillation-sick public who lovingly lick the hand stained with their own noses' blood!". This specially commisioned radio fantasy charts the genesis of a great war symphony, puts it in context and shows just what makes the music tick. With contributions from David
Fanning, Stephen Johnson ,
Jorgen Jensen and Osmo Vanska. The BBC
Scottish Symphony Orchestra is conducted by Osmo Vanska.

Mozart Serenade in B flat for 13
Wind Instruments, K361 Repeat
From the London Coliseum, the new production by English National Opera of Donizetti's opera about Mary, Queen of Scots, and her cousin Elizabeth I. The work is based on Schiller's drama rather than on historical fact. Mary has been imprisoned by Elizabeth, who jealously suspects that she and the Earl of Leicester are in love. In one of the great scenes in opera, the two queens confront each other until, despite her attempts at self-control, Mary is goaded into answering
Elizabeth's insults in kind. Sung in Amanda Holden 's new English translation. Introduced by Penny Gore .
English National Opera Chorus and Orchestra, conductor Noel Davies
8.35 Gloiiana Imperatrlx
Elizabeth I has fascinated composers as diverse as Donizetti, Britten, Rossini and Thomas. But what has made the Virgin Queen so operatically irresistible? Rupert Christiansen , opera critic of The Daily Telegraph, considers the seemingly disparate characterisations and their intriguing connections.
