Songs and their role in storytelling have supplied Weir with many creative ideas. Here she explores everything from timeless Chinese wisdom to Serbian, Scottish and Spanish folk poetry, and in The Voice of Desire the poems by Bridges, Keats and Hardy are conversations between humans and birds – where the birds seem more sophisticated than their human listeners.

Woman. Life. Song

From LSO St Luke's, London, Tom Service presents a concert given by students at the Guildhall School conducted by Andre de Ridder. Weir's Piano Concerto fills the space between chamber music and bravura-filled spectacle.

An intimate work, it has an English folksong, The Sweet Primroses, at the heart of the slow movement.

American soprano Jessye Norman commissioned poems from Maya Angelou, Clarissa Pinkola Estes and Toni Morrison specifically for Weir's song-cycle, which traces a woman's life from infancy to old age – with much humour along the way

How Well Do We Understand China?

Isabel Hilton introduces a special edition of the programme dedicated to the many new books being published about contemporary China.

In the quest to understand China, journalists, economists, sociologists and many others regularly produce detailed accounts of 'change in the East'. But do they really help us accurately decipher events in Beijing, Shanghai and beyond? And how does the British picture of China compare with the view from America?

Isabel is joined by the journalists Rob Gifford, Jonathan Fenby and Duncan Hewitt, all of whom have written or are writing studies of China, and by Anchee Min, who lived through the Cultural Revolution and who is now a novelist based in San Francisco.
