Classic Albums - No Secrets : Carly Simon
Basically, You're So Vain and some other songs. It IS a classic song, to be fair, from Klaus Voormann's intro, through the extravagant rhyme scheme, to the comic sentiment.

Aled Jones - Fy Nhaith Glasurol
Melbourne, birthplace of Percy Grainger, who was a whizz pianist, and later a whizz composer too. He met Klimsch in Frankfurt, he worked with Delius, and met his hero Grieg. He signed to Columbia. He did Troop concerts with Dame Nellie Melba.

Linkin Park - On Record
Matt chatted to Chester and Mike about their new LP which is out tomorrow. They've reacted against their previous record, and stretching their art. They compared themselves to Depeche Mode, which made a change. They've got a song with Stormzy and Pusha T too.

Artists Den Presents The National
From the Drill Hall at the Park Avenue Armoury, New York, a steady show from 2013 with the 4AD Records band who grew up in Cincinatti.

Motorhead - Live at Wacken 2011
A decent enough hour of material from the rock & roll noise machine.

Live With... Eleanor McEvoy
An Irish singer-songwriter. She sang, she played piano, she played guitar, she even played the violin...

Joe Cocker - Fire It Up - Live
From the LanXess Arena, Cologne, April 2013, on what would be his final tour. He's a lot more in control here, and all the better for it. He delivers the expected hits, and plenty of other solid efforts, too, including takes on Cry Me A River and Summer In The City too. A better record than his earlier effort (see above).

Buddy Holly - Rave On
Yet another retelling of this story, notable for the sheer number of people interviewed, ranging from his brother Larry who bought him his first guitar, and his widow Maria Elena who still regrets not being there to persuade him not to take his fateful flight, plus his drummer Jerry Allison, through contemporaries like Dion, Don Everly and Paul Anka (the latter writing 'It Doesn't Matter Anymore'), and so many others paying homage, whether Hank Marvin and Duane Eddy, through Brian May and Robert Wyatt, down to Don McLean talking about American Pie. Elvis might have drawn in the girls, but Buddy seems to have drawn a lot of lads to rock and roll music. It was notable how much he was an interpreter of others' songs as a writer himself. He turned Oh Boy and Rave On into definitive versions.

Aled Jones - Fy Nhaith Glasurol
To Helsinki this time to tell the tale of Jean Sibelius, who became a staunch nationalist, and helped with Finland's independence campaign from Russia. He was also a womanizer and an alcoholic, suffered depression and spent freely. Yet he lived to be 91, and his wife survived him for 12 years, dying at 98.
Tacked on like an afterthought and with much less airtime was a spot in Bergen, to relate the saga of Edvard Grieg, infamous now for his Piano Concerto and helping Henrik Ibsen with Peer Gynt.

Artist Den Presents Jason Mraz
From UCLA's Royce Hall, with support from all-girl folk rockers Raining Jane, Mraz rattled through the material to a warm crowd, and closing with I'm Yours, inevitably.

Andy Fairweather-Low: Live at the Water Rats
The Welsh singer from Amen Corner is still delighting fans, here with an hour or so of solo material, a few judicious covers, and even some Amen Corner hits (High in the Sky was welcome), and some patter for the crowd such as why he wouldn't stand a chance on shows like The Voice.

Artists Den Presents Damien Rice
From the Greenpoint Loft, Brooklyn, on November 24, 2014, the shouty folk guitarist worked through an hour or so of songs, none of which attracted me at all.

Incubus: On Record
Matt Stocks talking to Jose and Brandon about their new album, 8. It's 20 years since their breakout album Science, when they were contemporaries with Deftones and System of a Down. These two lads have known each other for 26 years. Though 6 years since their previous LP, they had been busy with touring and this new LP had a lengthy gestation. They're touring the US this summer, and might get to go UK dates early in 2018. They had help from Skrillex in giving these latest songs a tweak. They hope to play India and Africa, having not yet done so.

Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto #2 in C Minor, op.18
Kirill Gerstein handles the piano, while Semyon Dychkov conducts the orchestra at the Gewandhaus zu Leipzig. If you're not familiar with this tune, parts of it will be familiar from Eric Carmen's All By Myself. Kirill did a short encore of a left-handed piece from Blumenfeld.

Sputnik: Matt Johnson
A political chat show usually features all sorts of guests, but this week, The The's frontman got a turn, talking about a new film, The Inertia Variations, and a new single, We Can't Stop What's Coming, his first new material in 15 years. The The formed in 1979, and Matt has clearly been a political animal from the off. Though he recognised the greater empowerment for musicians from the digital world, he did still express support for cassettes and the analog world, too.

Gregory Porter - Live In Berlin
At the Philharmonic Concert Hall, May 2016, to be more precise. He did a steady hour or so of material, has an impressive voice too, and a good band.

The Strawbs at Electric Dreams
Another hour of electro-synth rather than folk-prog if you ask me, from the same event as so many others. They finished with an old favourite, Lay Down.

Stone Sour: On Record
Their new album is out at the end of June, so Corey and Josh talked to Matt Stocks about where they're at, where they've been, and where they're going. I've always been fond of their song Through Glass. This record is looser than some of their other. They did a festival in Dubai where they were kept awake by Toto doing encores. Been a few years since any UK gigs, so expectations for some in the next 12 months.

Sibelius 5
The Danish National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Dausgaard conducts Sibelius' 5th Symphony in E Flat Major, op.32, at the Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, from 2011. It was OK.

Aled Jones - Fy Nhaith Glasurol
Continuing his cosmopolitan trek, he first drops in on Haworth to talk about the Bronte sisters, not that they have anything to do with classical music, and then on to Bradford, where the Delius family moved from Bielefeld in the 1840s, and where young Fritz was born in 1862. He liked pastoral walks but went to live in France. During WW1, he changed his forename to Frederick (although I might have thought that wasn't less Germanic than Fritz, really). He studied at Leipzig, befriended Edward Grieg, Percy Grainger and Sir Thomas Beecham. He died in June 1934, and was buried in Surrey.
Again, the show tacked on a short look at another composer, this time George Butterworth. Unlike Delius, he did serve in WW1, was awarded the MC during the Somme, and was killed soon after.

Kings of Leon - Live @ Radio 1 Big Weekend
This year the annual beano came from City of Culture Hull, and the Followill Family ran through an hour or so, mainly from the recent WALLS album, but they included On Call and Radioactive, so that's alright, then.

Beartooth: Live in Columbus
A homecoming gig for the rockers, here at Express Live! on November 11, 2016, and an hour or so of songs, with some backstage stuff from the individual guys.

Anne-Sophie Mutter plays Sibelius & Shostakovich
In fact, she plays a Sibelius Violin Concerto, with an encore of a Bach Gigue, but the rest of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra play Shostakovich's 10th Symphony, at their usual place in Amsterdam, 2015.

Brahms Piano Concerto No 1 & No 2
The Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, and with Daniel Barenboim on the piano as they run through both pieces, which each last nearly an hour. Very accomplished work.

Rag n Bone Man: A Day in the Life
The day between April 20th, as he did the 2nd of 2 shows at Shepherds Bush Empire. His dad has clearly been a big supporter, and the first skit saw them go to the Fender shop where he bought he did a new Stratocaster for his birthday (and a Telecaster for himself). He later when to New Era to help design an exclusive baseball cap with his logo on it. He's proud to be Uckfield's biggest star, but is unnerved by people staring and uncomfortable posing for photos (though he does it). His support act were Rum Committee, a collective he emerged from. Time will tell how far he gets.

The BET Life of Brandy
Over 20 years of clips from various shows such as 106 & Park, or Awards shows. Her bad blood with Monica over "The Boy is Mine", her work with brother Ray J, and her Whitney Houston tribute in 2012 were probably the high-spots for an artist who isn't really considered big news over here.

Nielsen 3
The Danish National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Dausgaard, bash through Carl Nielsen's 3rd Symphony, op. 27, "Sinfonia Espansiva", at the Koncerthuset, Copenhagen, in 2011.

Alicia - Here in Times Square
From 2016, over an hour of Ms Keys and a captive audience in the middle of New York, to push her album "Here". I like some of her songs more than others.

Brahms & Szymanowski - Symphony #1
The first in a series with Valery Gergiev conducting the London Symphony Orchestra, firstly on Szymanowski's 1st Violin Concerto (with Janine Jansen on violin) and 1st Symphony, before doing the Brahms 1st Symphony, at the Barbican Hall, London, on Oct 11, 2012.

Top of the Pops - The Story of 1984
These repeats seem to be accelerating. Some stories were told, some were ignored, some were told by the wrong people & so on. Trevor Horn gleefully took credit for Frankie Goes To Hollywood, and Holly Johnson was nowhere to be seen. Better, Ian Levine came forth to take credit for his song "High Energy", which Horn clearly felt owed its success to Relax (though Levine preferred to say he ripped it off In The Navy). There was talk about jazz-esque acts like Sade coming through, the studio control of Madonna and Cyndi Lauper, and the hair-raising antics of Nena, before the charity efforts of Free Nelson Mandela and Do They Know It's Christmas? Quite a mad old year.

Top of the Pops - 1984 Big Hits
An accompanying hour with the Smiths, Miami Sound Machine, Black Lace, Echo and the Bunnymen, Alison Moyet and George Michael, who were largely absent from the above.

Brahms & Szymanowski Symphony 2
As above, Val Gergiev conducts the London Symphony Orchestra through the 2nd symphonies of these two composers, plus Brahms' Tragic Overture to kick things off, at the Barbican in London, on Oct 13, 2012.

Electric Dreams - The Interviews - David Cross
Not that they're stringing these out or anything, Nicky Horne chats briefly to the former King Crimson star who is now a Senior University Lecturer, who owns his own label, Noisy Records, even though it's commercially unviable. Pleased that prog continues to appeal, both to the old and the young.

Royal Blood: On Record
They've a new album out, their 2nd. Ben and Mike spoke modestly about how they didn't really expect to make an LP, never mind a successful one. They have wide influences, and are happy as a duo. They plan to tour festivals this summer, and headline an arena tour later in the year.

Brahms & Szymanowski - Symphony 3
The same gang as before, in the same place, but on Dec 18, 2012, with the 3rd Symphonies by both these composers, together with a Brahms piece called Variations on a Theme by Haydn, op.56a. Pleasant enough.

Nicola Benedetti's Indian Serenade
The violin whizz joins the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra on their tour of India, in 2014. They visit Delhi and Mumbai, consider the difference between the musical traditions of India in contrast to the 'western' model, the tricks of stage clothes, visiting an ordinary school and a proper music school, too. Good stuff.

Lemmy - In His Own Words
A short effort culled from assorted telly shows, some funnier than others, where he talked about taking on the bass, suffering acid blindness, making no plans, job satisfaction, long hair, life on the road, stage fright, and an expectation of pool tables in Hell. Still much missed.

Three Stars in Munich
A concert with the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra of Ostrava, conducted by Claudio Vandelki. The titular stars with Anna Netrebko, Jonas Kauffman and Thomas Hempson, although amusingly they were supplanted by Elena Zhidkova and Ildar Abdrazakov. They ran through Verdi works in the 1st half, before turning to Puccini and others in the 2nd. Solid enough entertainment.

Brahms & Szymanowski - Symphony 4
Yup, the 4th of these shows, with the same crew in the same place, on December 19th, 2012, with the 4th symphonies from both these guys, plus Szymanowski's 2nd Concerto for Violin & Orchestra. Leonidas Kavakos was the violinist star, with Denis Matsuev shining on the piano.

T'Pau - Live at the Water Rats
The ol' 80s stagers still willing and able to belt out the hits and enough other material to round out a good show.

The Summer of Love - How Hippies Changed the World
An intriguing 2x1 hour doc about the strands that brought together the hippies, and how and why it didn't last. It touched on LSD, the Black Panthers, the Diggers, the Yippies, the Black Bear commune, and so on. The Monterey Pop festival in '67 represented the zenith of the movement, whilst Woodstock was a sign that the show was over. Eric Burdon's love for pot, Peter Coyote's radicalism, Country Joe McDonald and Wayne Kramer and Graham Nash were all pointed contributors too.

Electric Dreams: Nicky Horne interviews Neil Arthur
A short piece that ties back in with the concert screened weeks ago. Neil spoke of Blancmange getting mistakenly lumped in with Depeche Mode and Soft Cell, who split in 1986 because it wasn't fun any more. They've recently reformed, and done a new LP, being interested in new ideas as well as their legacy. Nice guy.

Royal Blood at Glastonbury 2017
A steady enough half-hour from the band currently at #1 in the British LP charts.

Brahms & Szymanowski
This 5th show featured A German Requiem from the former, and Stabat Mater from the latter, though by the same line-up in the same place, on March 30, 2013. Been a good series.

Elbow at Glastonbury 2017
From the Park stage, this "surprise" set from Friday night was dominated by their Seldom Seen Kid apex, including closing on One Day Like This. I noticed their "The Birds" track owes more than a little to Gary Numan's Complex.

Dizzee Rascal at Glastonbury 2017
From the West Holts stage, later on Friday, this was over an hour of a wide choice of material, happily ending with my fave track Bonkers.

Father John Misty at Glastonbury
With huge numbers of acts performing, but only a slender choice to feature, I'm baffled how this guy on the John Peel Stage got an hour of air-time when so many other better acts didn't.

The BET Life of Mary J Blige
Another career lookback at the "Queen of Hip-Hop Soul" from her early days in the early 90s, through highs and lows, tributes to other artistes, duets with other artistes and so on. Ja Rule, Jadakiss and Fatman Scoop were all among the THs paying homage, too.

Rag n Bone Man at Glastonbury
From the Other Stage, a lengthier than expected set which suggests he might just have the depth for a longer career after all.

Antonin Dvorak - Nine Symphonies
Another series of concerts, this time at the Rudolfinum, Prague, with Jiri Belohlavek conducting the Czech Philharmonic, from 2014, starting with the 1st Symphony in C Minor, "the Bells of Zlonice".

Shaggy at Glastonbury 2017
A short burst from the West Holts Stage, including a desperate section trying to gee up the crowd. Bless him, he keeps going.

Emeli Sande at Glastonbury 2017
Another short burst, from the Other Stage, where she preceded headliners Boy Better Know. She at least seemed to get a better crowd result, though I might have thought her 2nd LP hasn't quite matched the impact of her 1st.

Leonard Cohen - I'm Your Man
From a Sydney tribute concert, 2005, with assorted acts from Nick Cave to Rufus Wainwright performing Cohen works, split up with some chatter from the man himself, and a conclusion where he performed with U2 in New York at some other occasion.

Antonin Dvorak - Nine Symphonies
As before, this time the 2nd Symphony in B Flat Major, op.4

Mike & Jules - While We Still Have Time
Mike Peters, formerly of The Alarm, has been married to Jules for 30 years. He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 1995, and been fighting ever since. His wife was diagnosed with breast cancer last June. This doc told their stories, as well as their Love Hope Strength Foundation, and Mike writing a new love song about the situation, and climaxing with an annual gig for his fans in Llandudno. Can only wish them both well.

Antonin Dvorak - Nine Symphonies
This time, the 3rd Symphony in E Flat Major, op.10.

Live With... Rothwell
A blonde acoustic singer-songwriter, who had several good songs of her own, and did a cover of Nina Simone's Feeling Good as well.

Electric Dreams: Nicky Horne interviews Ekkah
They're a Brummie duo, Rebekah and Rebecca, who've known each other 11 years, had been in an indie band, but decided to have more fun after they turned 20 and went clubbing. They've got good contracts, apparently with RCA and Universal, so the lack of success might not be a problem yet.

The Pretenders at Glastonbury 2017
From the Other Stage, a short but spirited set, with Chrissie in a Motorhead t-shirt and plenty of hits for an appreciative crowd.

Electric Dreams: Nicky Horne interviews Heaven 17
Martyn Ware and Glenn Gregory are old hands who never expected things to turn out how they did. Glenn was the first choice singer for Human League, but had gone off to London. Fascist Groove Thing got banned and made their name. They marvel that young audiences discover them. They've seen great changes in technology over 40 years. Their magnum opus LP Penthouse and Pavement was done in the same studio at the same time as the Human League did their magnum opus LP Dare.

Sommernachtzkonzert at Schonbrunn 2017
An annual event, with Christoph Eschenbach conducting the Vienna Philharmonic at the Schonbrunn Palace. They did some Dvorak, Tchaikowsky, Rachmaninov, Stravinsky, and others. Soprano Renee Fleming was on hand to do some singing along the way too.

All Things Must Pass
A lengthy epic about the rise and fall of Tower Records. How Russ Solomon saw a market for record shops, and inspiring a workforce that led to a decades-long expansion, until the death of his long-time financial partner and the arrival of Napster led to the rapid destruction of the business - except in Japan, where several shops in the chain still thrive. Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, David Geffen and others spoke fondly of being consumers, whilst Elton John claimed he probably spent more money there than anyone else.

The National, at Glatonbury 2017
Saturday night on the Pyramid stage, as the American band got nearly an hour of coverage. Maybe they'll be headliners one day - they'll have to write some hits before that happens.

Pop Pride & Prejudice
Part of a season on gay rights, this considered how Dusty Springfield and David Bowie were pioneers, how disco made a difference, and how so many 80s acts were gay and successful. Times have changed, largely for the better.

Antonin Dvorak - Nine Symphonies
The series continues, predictably, with the 4th Symphony in D Minor, op.13.

Live With... Sounds of the Sirens
Never heard of them, their debut LP is called "For All Our Sins", they are Abbe and Hannah, they've been together 10 years, and their songs were OK.

Radiohead at Glastonbury
Headlined the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night, and delivered a 2+ hour show with familiar and unfamiliar tracks from their many albums. It was also the 20th anniversary of their landmark OK Computer LP and the Glastonbury headline gig they did to promote it. They did 2 encores, and managed to fit in almost all of their hits too, closing with Karma Police. Great stuff.

Wacken 2014 - Saxon
An hour or so from the heavy metal legends, with singer Biff referring to 25 years of the Wacken festival, and 35 years of Saxon. They made sure to include their biggest hits and plenty of other good material.

Lorraine - Ben Haenow
Last Friday, the 2014 UK X Factor winner, plugged a new single, Alive, and talked about his new record deal, his upcoming marriage, working with his brother, touring in October and doing festivals in the Summer.

Antonin Dvorak - Nine Symphonies
The 5th Symphony in F Major, op.76, and also the 6th Symphony in D Major, op.60. Only three to go!

Becoming A Lied Singer - Thomas Quasthoff and the Art of German Song
TQ is a retired lied singer who now works as a Professor, and tutor to upcoming lied singers, and who had instigated a competition to find such new voices since 2009. His professional singing career ended after his brother died, and he lost his voice. He now sings jazz which is apparently easier. Schubert and Brahms were the most noted composers of lieder music. It was originally music to be sung in recitals in drawing rooms, rather than the concert halls it is often heard in now.

Lang Lang - Chopin and Tchaikowsky - Live in Versailles - In the Hall of Mirrors
The piano whizz does four scherzi by Chopin, followed by The Seasons, 12 pieces of music by Tchaikowsky, from 2015. A pleasantly impressive show.

Antonin Dvorak - Nine Symphonies
His 7th Symphony in D Minor, op.70 this time.

Music For Mercy
A charity concert of sorts, connected with the Pope's Jubilee of Mercy in 2016, held at the Roman Forum, Rome. Old sweats like Andrea Bocelli and Elaine Paige mixed with newer stars like Carly Paoli, as they dealt with old favourites like Nessun Dorma and I Know Him So Well, to other less familiar works.
