today (presented by sarah smith) includes…

I had my own brush with PTSD, I didn’t develop the full condition, but I suffered from the symptoms … after a Lebanese colleague of mine was killed by the Israelis, they fired a tank shell into the back of his car, I had just got out, I was only 100 yards away, he managed to force his way out through the window before he died. He was on fire, I couldn’t get up there, when I tried to get up there the Israelis tried to  kill me, they opened fire on me with a heavy machine-gun. These things leave their mark.”

Looking for Palestine

BBC bias: The BBC Proms mark Israel’s 70th anniversary year with no Israeli orchestra but with the Palestinian political work ‘Looking for Palestine’ (mostly about the Lebanon War).

This summary is from David Robert Coleman’s own summary of the piece, at https://youtu.be/B8KSZHyRB7g
Scene1: ‘Although I have never returned to Palestine, Palestine always returns to me’.
Scene 2: It describes how she is in Lebanon, and how beautiful and idyllic it all is, but in the background something is already going wrong. Towards the end of the scene, the bombing of Lebanon begins.
Scene 3: There’s a short episode where she talks about her fear of seeing bombs being thrown from aeroplanes and the kind of reactions that provokes in her.
Scene 4: She’s back in New York, and there’s a protest developing against this bombardment, and she says you know it’s just a few people, and they seem to be basically quite bourgeois white people protesting there.
Coda: She talks about becoming a kind of feeling like a Palestinian in that moment, and I end it with the words ‘Words are so powerful’.

this evening (tuesday 14th), 7.30-11.30pm, on bbc rsdio 3

“At the centre of the concert is David Robert Coleman’s ‘Looking for Palestine’ for soprano and orchestra, a work commissioned by the ensemble, and one that speaks to its uniquely political identity.”
