10.00am – Dr Catherine Loveday on the Reminiscence bump
The reminiscence bump refers to the period in your life which you remember most, 15 to 21. Most people's musical tastes are dictated by the reminiscence bump, as cognitive neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday's research has established. Catherine (one of the weekend's resident experts) and her team at University of Westminster have researched listeners' favourite classical music recordings to establish if they too come from that period in their lives and chats to Andrew about her findings.

In September, we asked our listeners to name their favourite recordings of the following eight pieces. They were directed to a University of Westminster link where Catherine Loveday's students compiled and assessed the responses.

SAT 11:00 Music and Memory (b098fygp)
Memory Varied: Igor Levit plays Beethoven

At once humorous and dramatic, playful and profound, Beethoven's monumental 'Diabelli Variations' shows one of the all-time great composers at the top of his game, as he subjects a very ordinary, four-square theme to a series of extraordinary transformations.

Before performing the whole work, internationally acclaimed pianist Igor Levit demonstrates the demands Beethoven makes on both the listener's and performer's memory. Do we need to remember the original theme during the near-hour duration of the piece? How does a performer memorise so much complicated music? Is memory the essence of the 'Diabelli Variations'?

Presented in conversation with Sarah Walker, live from Wellcome Collection as Part of Why Music? The Key to Memory, a weekend of events, concerts and discussions exploring the implications of music's unique capacity to be remembered.

Beethoven: 33 Variations on a waltz by Anton Diabelli, Op. 120
Igor Levit (piano).


SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b097klk7)
Why Music? The Key to Memory

Presented by Tom Service.

In this special live edition of the programme, Music Matters teams up with psychologists from Goldsmiths, University of London, led by Dr Daniel Mullensiefen, for the Music Matters Lab. Daniel and his colleagues will be revealing the results of experiments created specially for the programme, aimed at testing short-term memory for melody and rhythm.

To explore what difference that makes to our understanding and enjoyment of music, Tom is joined by Professor Adam Ockelford, who has written extensively on how the human brain makes sense of music. And the composer Anne Dudley explains how she relies on a TV audience's ability to remember, when writing theme tunes for programmes including Jeeves & Wooster and Poldark.

Conductors Jonathan Nott and Karina Canellakis reveal how they memorise an orchestral score, and what motivates them to conduct without one, and Tom visits rehearsals for the Hospital Passion Play, an opera by Orlando Gough which deals with memory loss through the testimony of stroke survivors.

SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b097s92m)

In a special show in front of a live audience at Wellcome Collection, star soprano Lesley Garrett presents music that brings back memories for her - from the people, places and events that have shaped her life and career.

SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b097s92p)
Why Music? The Key to Memory

Live from Wellcome Collection as part of Why Music? The Key to Memory, a weekend of events, concerts and discussions exploring music's unique capacity to be remembered.

Matthew Sweet is joined by pianist and film music authority Neil Brand for a live programme exploring the importance of memory on the working of music for film. Matthew and Neil discuss and illustrate how musical recollection informs a viewer's reading of a film; how it can heighten emotional response; how at times it can even suggest psychological depths to narrative and character that run counter to our perception of the image.

They explore the 'Casablanca' effect and consider the interesting and novel ways in which our received or instinctive repertory of musical sounds, offers a collective cultural reference with the ability to evoke mood, setting, empathy and humour.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Record Requests (b097s92r)

SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b098fygr)
Why Music? The Key to Memory

Kerry Andrew presents a memory-themed concert of new music.

Parkinson Saunders will be challenging each other's memory in performances involving associating random words with specific sounds. Seated at two tables, their instrumentation comprises any sound-producing means other than conventional instruments. This can include lo-fi electronics, ordinary objects, toys, and vocalisations, resulting in a table-top orchestra of possibilities.

Also performing live will be Bastard Assignments, a London-based collective of composer-performers. They curate gigs that bring the best of experimental music and performance to London, as well as showing their own work across Europe. They are currently a quartet comprised of Edward Henderson, Timothy Cape, Caitlin Rowley and Josh Spear. They are joined tonight by Antonia Barnett-McIntosh, a former composer in residence at Wellcome Collection.

Cerys Matthews and Tom Service simulcast

Radio 3's Tom Service and 6Music's Cerys Matthews join forces for a special live show on both BBC Radio stations. Together, Tom and Cerys invite audience and listeners to join them in the 'plink' test where recognising a song from its first half second not only demonstrates the robustness of musical memory but also can show your age.

Their guest is the singer and composer Hannah Peel, who, when her Gran was diagnosed with dementia, harnessed the power of music to help her - her album "Awake but Always Dreaming" is an exploration of dementia and celebration of their relationship. She talks about her music and performs live.

Plus, in the last of her features on the extraordinary objects on display at Wellcome Collection, Georgia Mann discovers the impact of dementia on creativity as she looks at a moving series of pictures made by someone living with dementia.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b098hwty)
Sir Simon Wessely

As part of Radio 3's Why Music? The Key to Memory weekend, Michael Berkeley talks to the psychiatrist Sir Simon Wessely.

Professor Sir Simon Wessely is one of our most eminent psychiatrists: until recently the President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, he is the current president of the Royal Society of Medicine, and Regis Chair of Psychiatry at King's College London. An interest in unexplained symptoms and syndromes has led to many years of research in areas such as Chronic Fatigue and Gulf War Syndrome.

Simon talks to Michael about the powerful relationship between music and memory, his decision to study medicine rather than history, and how playing the flute once got him out of a tricky situation at Tel Aviv airport.

He chooses violin music by Brahms and Dvorak for his parents, shares his love of opera with music by Puccini and Mozart, and tells Michael about his other passion - musical theatre.

SUN 15:00 The Early Music Show (b098gpgs)
Why Music? The Key to Memory

Harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani and guests explore the role of shared memory in early music.

The cornet player Helen Roberts demonstrates 'divisions' in early music - the division of longer notes into shorter, fast-moving florid ornamentations. She explains how building up a memory bank of such divisions helps with improvisation.

Monks from Downside Abbey perform medieval music and describe how repetition of key melodic lines helps to memorise the Psalms

And Mahan investigates a 13th-century Greek medical manuscript from Wellcome's Library, where chants are used to help memorise the symptoms, causes and cure of various conditions.

Earworms

Remember the last tune you had stuck in your head? It's probably back there now... sorry about that... Whether it's Ravel's Bolero or Lady Gaga's Bad Romance we've all had them. But why and how can certain songs or pieces lodge themselves in our musical memory and refuse to budge.

In a special edition live from the Reading Rooms of Wellcome Collection, Tom Service is joined by singer and broadcaster Jarvis Cocker to unearth the maddening musical secrets behind earworms as they pick some of their 'favourites', try to create an earworm out of the most unlikely music possible, and hear from music psychologist Kelly Jakubowski on the science behind it all.

With prose and poetry from Ogden Nash, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Philip K Dick, Milan Kundera and others. Music includes Debussy, Purcell, Philip Glass, Villa-Lobos and Jacques Brel. The programme starts with humour and gravitates to more serious matters, exploring what an essential human quality it is to forget.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b098fpbc)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), A step forward

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today it's Manon Lescaut, a woman whose love of pleasure and the good life ultimately leads to her destruction.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, Puccini was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly pushing the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - which include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

It was his third opera, Manon Lescaut that marked a significant turning point for Puccini. After three years of hard graft, working with a succession of librettists on this adaptation of Abbé Provost's novel, when it was premiered in Turin in 1893, the critics were universal in their praise, citing in particular the quality of the vocal writing.

Martyn Brabbins, a master of this music, then turns his attention to the element of Water - Ralph Vaughan Williams's choral A Sea Symphony, one of the most confident first symphonies ever, first heard in 1910, with its two singers lifting the poetry of Walt Whitman into song.
Two superb singers of the younger generation and the BBC Symphony Chorus join the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a programme that exults in the power of nature

Stories That Sing, Julian Barnes: Opera - Coming to it Late

Frustratingly banal plots and often incomprehensible lyrics meant that for much of his listening life Julian Barnes had 'a serious problem with opera'. Then all that changed.

In an attempt to demystify this huge and multifaceted genre for the BBC's Opera season, five creative individuals examine their own encounters with opera, as an art form and as a life-enhancing and sometimes life-changing emotional experience. These personal essays reveal the variety of ways in which opera can seduce, fascinate, bore, frustrate and excite.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), The Bohemians

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss Puccini's vivid evocation of student life, La Bohème, and the characters of the fragile embroiderer, Mimì and the flamboyant Musetta.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, Puccini was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Set in the Latin Quarter of Paris, and premiered in 1896, La Bohème was the first of a series of highly successful collaborations with the writers Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b098nhc2)
The Halle, live from Nottingham

Stuart Flinders presents a concert of works by Ravel, Debussy and Mussorgsky given by the Hallé, clarinettist Sergio Castello Lopez and conductor Sir Mark Elder, live from the Royal Concert Hall, Nottingham.

Impressions of exotic lands long held a fascination for Ravel, and a hint came early in his career: Rapsodie Espagnole is a vision of Spain conjured by his mother's memories of Madrid. It incorporates a Carmen-inspired Habanera written 12 years earlier, and concludes with a dramatic explosion of colour and passion - and castanets.

But how else to end his Bolero other than with the instruction "as loudly as possible"? Beginning life as a commission for ballerina Ida Rubinstein, Ravel built a daringly simple structure of 17 variations, whose mounting excitement is reflected in the work's signature crescendo. Its sensational success somewhat baffled Ravel, who had predicted that most orchestras would refuse to play it.

The conductor Serge Koussevitzky urged Ravel to turn his dazzling use of orchestration to an orchestral transcription of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition for solo piano, and in the process created another 20th-century classic. Ravel's gallery tour retains all the bizarre imagery and muscular realism of the original, and blends delicate image-painting with all-Russian majesty.

In between, Debussy's exacting Première Rhapsodie - a work composed as a test piece for the Paris Conservatoire's annual clarinet competition, yet one which Debussy felt to be one of the most pleasing works he had written.

Stories That Sing, Patricia Duncker: How I Fell in Love with Opera

In an attempt to demystify this huge and multifaceted genre, five creative individuals examine their own encounters with opera. These personal essays reveal the variety of ways in which opera can seduce, fascinate, baffle, frustrate and excite.

In the second essay in the series, academic and novelist Patricia Duncker examines the dangerous and seductive ways in which opera can overwhelm the senses. In particular she discusses the power of Benjamin Britten's Death in Venice.

Patricia Duncker is the author of five novels including James Miranda Barry and Hallucinating Foucault. Her most recent academic position was as Professor of Contemporary Literature in the Department of English, American Studies and Creative Writing at the University of Manchester.

TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b098hhcw)
Verity Sharp at home with Robert Wyatt

Verity Sharp heads to the edgelands of Lincolnshire for a special programme recorded at home with one of the most distinctive voices in British songwriting, Robert Wyatt. A pivotal figure in the alternative music scene of the last 50 years, Wyatt has had a profound influence on the history of British music. But he's also one of its most affable story tellers. Over a plate of local plum cake, Wyatt talks Verity through some of the music that has helped shape him as an artist and the stories that go with it. With the ease of someone who is as comfortable reciting nonsense verse as discussing the Syrian crisis, he swings from stories about dinner parties with Robert Graves in Majorca, to being on tour with Jimi Hendrix and the time when Bjork came to visit him in Louth.

Robert Wyatt came to prominence in the late 1960s as the drummer with the jazz-infused psychedelic band Soft Machine before a debilitating accident in 1973 left him paralysed from the waist down. He went on to make some of the most startling music in his repertoire, abandoning the drum kit in favour of piano and a haunting vocal style. He became known for his unique voice and a playful way with words - qualities which run through his eight solo albums, which veer from the fiercely political to the childlike and surreal. Although probably most famed for his vocal part on the Elvis Costello-penned hit Shipbuilding, Robert Wyatt's influence stretches far beyond that, having worked with American jazz composer Carla Bley, Icelandic artistic powerhouse Bjork and Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto as well as jazz musicians fleeing apartheid South Africa, and long-time friend Brian Eno.

Over the course of an hour and a half he looks back on the last 50 years of his life as an artist and an avid music collector, picking out selections dear to his heart - from his love of British tenor Peter Pears to his fanaticism for early jazz singers and Ivor Cutler's absurdism. Verity also brings some of her own choices, sparking discussions around British surrealism, his dislike of the 'wobbly singers' of opera, his undying love for life partner Alfie and a frank conversation about his battle with depression, before giving us a quick piano lesson to boot. An intimate portrait of a truly British voice with a love of the absurd and an ear for the unusual.

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), A Roman truth

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss one of the most passionate and complex of characters, Tosca.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Now firmly established as an internationally acclaimed figure, there was a lot of hype surrounding a new opera by Puccini. But when Tosca was first heard in Rome on 14th January 1900, the audience simply didn't get what they were hearing. They were confused. Where, they asked was the melody?

Stories That Sing, David Threlfall

As part of the BBC's Opera season, five creative individuals examine their own encounters with opera. These personal essays reveal the variety of ways in which opera can seduce, fascinate, baffle, frustrate and excite.

David Threlfall saw his first opera - Zeffirelli's production of La Boheme - in New York in 1980. Since then his relationship with the art-form has suffered a few disappointments.

David Threlfall is one of Britain's most admired and versatile character actors. In 1980 he played the role of Smike in the Royal Shakespeare Company's eight-hour stage version of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby, in both London and New York. He has gone on to play a huge range of roles on stage and in film. His most notable television role was as Frank Gallagher in Paul Abbott's Channel 4 drama Shameless which ran from 2004 to 2013. He is next on screen in the BBC/Netflix drama Troy - Fall of a City, in which he plays King Priam.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b098n7fd)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), A sea of misery

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano, traces the developmental line of Puccini's meticulously crafted dramatic heroines. Today they discuss Puccini's personal favourite, the tragic geisha, Madama Butterfly.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking to perfect the synthesis between music and action, while constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

Based on a play he'd seen in London by David Belasco, Madama Butterfly ended up causing Puccini more heartache than either Tosca or La bohème. At the opening night at La Scala Milan on 17th February 1904 the action on stage was drowned out by the catcalls from the audience. Worse was to come. When the curtain came down at the end there was total silence. Out of all this anguish, what really stands out is Puccini's creation of surely the most heart-breaking and delicate of heroines, Cio-cio San, Madama Butterly.

Placido Domingo sang the title role of Nabucco for the very first time anywhere in the world as part of the Royal Opera House's Verdi 200 celebrations in 2013, and Liudmyla Monastyrska dazzled in the role of Abigaille. Domingo takes on the baritone role of Nebuchadnezzar, King of the Babylonians, in the biblical story which so much resounded in the hearts of Italians at the time. The fight of the Hebrews against oppression and exile took a different twist in a tale of love and patriotism, represented in the celebrated chorus 'Va pensiero', one of Verdi's most famous pieces. Nicola Luisotti conducts the chorus and orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Followed by performances from this week's featured orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in music by Copland and Karl Jenkins.

In an attempt to demystify this huge and multifaceted genre for the BBC's Opera season, five creative individuals examine their own encounters with opera. These personal essays reveal the variety of ways in which opera can seduce, fascinate, baffle, frustrate and utterly overwhelm.

Rachel Cooke trained at The Sunday Times as a reporter and now writes for the Observer and New Statesman. Her first book, Her Brilliant Career: Ten Extraordinary Women of the Fifties was published in 2013.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b098n9x6)
Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), Three for One

Donald Macleod, in conversation with Sir Antonio Pappano concludes this series exploring Puccini's heroines with Il trittico, three one-act operas and three contrasting female leads, Il tabarro's Giorgetta, Suor Angelica and Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, for whom he wrote one of the most beautiful, soaring melodies in opera, O mio babbino caro.

Manon Lescaut, Mimì,Tosca, Madama Butterfly and Suor Angelica are women who capture our hearts and connect directly with our emotions. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, seated beneath several striking portraits of the composer, Tony dips into the scores to show how Puccini created these unforgettable characters and how with each one, he was seeking a perfect synthesis between music and action, constantly looking to push the boundaries of his musical language.

Born in 1858 in Lucca into a dynasty of musicians, Puccini was destined to be a church composer. That all changed when at age of 18, he walked to Pisa to see Verdi's Aida. It proved to be a formative experience. In that moment, he determined to become a man of the theatre, writing music exclusively for the stage. He went on to produce a dozen operas in fulfilment of that ambition - the last of them left incomplete at his death in 1924 - include La Bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly, still the cornerstones of any opera house's repertory.

The success of Puccini's trilogy of one-act operas, Il trittico at its New York premiere in 1918 ended a difficult decade for the composer. He'd started and abandoned several theatrical projects but now, finally, his hunger to embrace a new and modern musical language found expression in these three carefully balanced narratives: the darkly impressionistic Il tabarro follows Giorgetta and Luigi's illicit affair to a shocking conclusion, Puccini's own personal favourite, recounts a moment of truth and its tragic consequences for Suor Angelica and to round the evening off, greedy relatives are outwitted in the fast paced comic opera Gianni Schicchi.
