A series of four programmes with Simon Rattle conducting the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra leader FELIX KOK
1911 was an eventful year in Europe, a crossing of many paths, a year in which the visual arts, literature and music not only looked back at a rapidly disappearing romantic era but forward into a deeper realism.
Tonight there's a kaleidoscope of music first performed or written in that year - Carl Nielsen , Sibelius, Debussy, Ravel, Stravinsky, Charles Ives , Delius, Scriabin, Bartok, Schoenberg, Webern, Irving Berlin.
With paintings from Picasso, Braque, Leger, Klee, Kandinsky, Schiele, Boccioni, Chagall and quotations from Jung, H. G. Wells , Thomas Hardy , Rilke, Cavafy, and others. 1911 also witnessed the completion by Sibelius of his Fourth Symphony and the death of Mahler, who had completed only the outline of his tenth and last Symphony.
The series that follows tonight's cross-section looks at these two composers in particular and includes performances of both works - that of Mahler's Tenth in the version completed by DERYCK COOKE.

starring
Pierre Blaise , Aurore Clement
June 1944. Lucien, a 17-year-old boy working as a hospital orderly, returns to his home village to find that, with his father a prisoner of war, his mother has taken a lover and their farm has been let to strangers. Lucien promptly volunteers for the maquis, but when they reject him, decides the Gestapo will be just as exciting.
Louis Malle set out to make a film about ordinary Fascism, about the obscure people who do not make the history books. Lacombe Lucien is a masterly analysis of the tangled motives of collaboration.
