SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b00r3rw3)
Who's Afraid of Hugo Wolf?

Hugo Wolf's reputation is for humourless, dense, difficult songs.Yet, when you listen to them, a different story emerges. They can be biting or tender, funny or sad, erotic or esoteric - but always as immediately appealing as those by Schubert or Schumann. How did Wolf gain such a mistaken reputation?

With performances of Wolf songs from Fischer-Dieskau, Elly Ameling, Ian Bostridge and Barbra Streisand amongst others, pianist and lieder-lover Iain Burnside traces Wolf's life and aims as a composer. In his quest to set the Wolf record straight, he is joined by fellow Wolf enthusiasts: Dr Susan Youens and Dr Amanda Glauert, the pianist Graham Johnson, and Jeremy Sams, whose father was the eminent Wolf scholar, Eric Sams.

Iain discovers how Wolf's sense of humour based on caricature and derision made him as many friends as enemies; how Wagner was both an ardent inspiration and a curse on Wolf's career; how Bizet's opera Carmen brought a new clarity of vision to Wolf's late song collections; and how the richnesses & sophistication of Wolf recordings past may be inhibiting our appreciation of Wolf today.

SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00qzrtf)
Robert Carver profile

Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of the 16th century composer, Robert Carver, one of Scotland's most significant musical figures. Carver's music is all sacred: he composed several mass settings, and two motets, and all his compositions are contained in the 'Carver Choir Book'. Relatively little is known about him biographically, but it is known that at the age of about 19 he entered holy orders and became Canon of the Augustinian Abbey in Scone near Perth. Carver was also referred to in the Choirbook as 'Robert Carvor, alias Robert Arnot' which has led scholars to think therefore he was the Robert Arnot, a canon of the Chapel Royal in Stirling. The Carver Choirbook is the only source for his music, but it also includes music by other composers, including several English composers whose music is also found in the Eton Choirbook and also Dufay's Mass 'L'homme armé. Music in the programme includes movements of some of Carver's mass settings, a Magnificat by John Nesbett which appears in the Choir book, and Carver's remarkable 19 part motet O bone Jesu.

An Appalachian Road Trip

Music from Georgia

Musician and writer Banning Eyre heads to the American state of Georgia, gateway to the Deep South, and southern end of the Appalachian Mountains, to record some of the unique vocal music that has been preserved in the area, and meet the personalities who have kept the traditions alive.

He meets 92 year old blind gospel legend Sister Fleeta Mitchell, who still sings and plays the piano alongside her musical companion the Revd Willie Mae Eberhardt, herself in her late 70s. Together they recall disturbing tales of life in the south, and the songs that gave people hope.

Banning drops in to the converted chicken shack that is home to Phil Tanner and the Skillet Lickers, to hear them in their weekly session. Phil is the grandson of chicken farmer Gid Tanner who in 1924, with the original Skillet Lickers, became the first southern rural artist to record for the Columbia record label, and whose blend of music and comedy sold millions.

The Myers Family and Friends, a singing family of guitar playing ladies, recall the songs they sang as children for corn shuckings and bean stringings, and local artist and folk song collector Art Rosenbaum talks about the unique character of North Georgia, and picks a tune on one of his many banjos.

As well as the banjos and the ballads, Banning also attends the 141st Annual Alpharetta June Singing, and discovers that the 19th Century tradition of congregational 'shape note' singing still lives on in the south.

The Muiderkring

The Muiderkring or Muider Circle was a group of contributors to the arts and sciences in the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, when Dutch trade, science and art was among the most important in the world. Chief among this group was the historian, poet and playwright Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft, who was appointed as Sheriff and Bailiff for the Gooiland, the area around Hilversum, in 1609, and was given a medieval moated castle to live in, the Muiderslot.

Over the next four decades, he spent his summers there, entertaining house parties of distinguished friends from the worlds of art, music and philosophy. They discussed current affairs, read their poetry to each other, debated philosophical and moral issues and of course, made music.

Hooft seems to have had impeccable taste and his guestlist reads like a who's who of the Dutch cultural elite: with the poets Caspar Barlaeus and Hooft's great friend Joost van den Vondel, the wealthy merchant and poet Pieter Roemers Visscher and Constantijn Huygens among the castlist.

In today's Early Music Show, Catherine Bott investigates this mysterious cultural group.

The Court of Mary, Queen of Scots

David McGuinness visits Stirling Castle and the Palace of Holyrood House in Edinburgh, to trace the story of Mary Queen of Scots' reign, and the music which surrounded her. From the devotional masses and motets by Robert Carver - so popular with Mary's father, King James V, to the jolly French dances she would have enjoyed during her first marriage to Francis Dauphin of France, Mary remained a music lover throughout her short life. Queen Mary's favourite attendant and confidante during her second marriage to her cousin, Lord Henry Darnley, was an Italian musician called David Rizzio. Darnley and David Rizzio spent long hours together on the tennis court at Falkland Palace, but Darnley's jealousy grew at the Italian's familiarity with his new wife, and he planned to do away with Rizzio at the earliest opportunity. The political assassination that followed was carefully staged, with 500 armed men keeping the Palace of Holyrood House secure while Lord Ruthven and his accomplices burst in to Mary's chamber, where she and Rizzio were sharing supper with guests. Rizzio was dragged from the dinner table and stabbed more than 50 times in front of the Queen.

SUN 17:00 Discovering Music (b00qztjm)
The Confession of Isobel Gowdie

Stephen Johnson examines The Confession of Isobel Gowdie with its composer James MacMillan and looks at the impact of the composer's Scottish heritage on his work in general.

MacMillan's orchestral work, The Confession of Isobel Gowdie, brought the composer great critical acclaim when it was first heard at the Proms in 1990, since then it has enjoyed numerous performances all over the world. The piece was inspired by the tragic account of a young 17th century Scots woman who was burned as a witch after an improbable confession was extracted from her.
As Macmillan himself says of the work:
"Initially I was drawn by the dramatic and programmatic potential of this insane and terrible story but the work soon developed a far more emotional core as I attempted to draw together various strands in a single, complicated act of contrition. On behalf of the Scottish people the work craves absolution and offers Isobel Gowdie the mercy and humanity that was denied her in the last days of her life. To do this I Have tried to capture the soul of Scotland in music and outer sections contain a multitude of chants, songs and litanies (real and imagined) coming together in a reflective outpouring - a prayer for the murdered woman. This work is the Requiem that Isobel Gowdie never had."

In the course of the programme Stephen Johnson also explores the importance of the composer's Scottish heritage on his work, and looks at how Sottish themes and ideas have coloured his compositions.

The BBC Philharmonic present illustrations and give a complete performance of "The Confession of Isobel Gowdie" conducted by the composer.

SUN 18:30 Choir and Organ (b00qztjp)
Ronald Corp/Josette Simon

Aled Jones is joined by the conductor, composer and choral expert Ronald Corp for a discussion about music for children's choirs. In 1991 Corp founded the New London Children's Choir with the aim of filling a gap in general education by giving girls and boys from 7 to 18 the chance to sing all kinds of different music. Since then, the Choir has evolved into three groups - Training, Senior and Youth - and on top of weekly rehearsals the children enjoy activities ranging from appearing with Lou Reed to singing opera. Strongly influenced by Benjamin Britten, who wrote a significant number of works especially for children, Corp has commissioned over forty pieces from contemporary composers for the choir to sing. He is also a prolific composer who's made a significant contribution to the oeuvre himself. You can hear two of his compositions on the programme, Give to my eyes Lord for children's voices and a setting of Matthew Arnold's "Dover Beach" for adult and children's voices. Aled is also joined by the actress Josette Simon, OBE, who talks about her support of Kaos Signing Choir for Deaf and Hearing Children. This choir uniquely gives both deaf and hearing children the opportunity to come together and sing. Josette explains how the choir works and we hear a sectional weekly rehearsal with some of the younger members, practising some of their favourite specially composed music.

SUN 20:00 Drama on 3 (b00qztyg)
La princesse de Cleves

Madame de Lafayette's classic tale of intrigue and love translated and freely dramatised by Jo Clifford.

Set in the 16th Century, the play follows the life of a beautiful young lady newly presented to Court. It's the reign of Henri II and Mary Queen of Scots is safely ensconced in France. It's a time of dangerous liaisons when one step out of line could ruin a woman and her family.

Quickly married off, the naïve Princess finds herself admired and taunted by those around her. And, whilst they gossip cruelly, she becomes helplessly and dangerously caught up in matters of love.

Playfully adapted, this radio dramatisation offsets the Princess's painful conflict between duty and love with characters who delight in the wickedness of their world.

Field Work

Marybeth Hamilton tells the story of the invention of ethnographic fieldwork by Bronislaw Malinowski in the early years of the Twentieth Century and how living with the people you are studying became a guiding tenet of all anthropology. Malinowski stumbled into a prolonged stay in the Pacific almost by accident and wrote private diaries that some have thought jeopardised his more scholarly findings but his studies - appearing at the same time as Freud was writing and literary modernism (James Joyce, T.S. Eliot) was changing how the world was perceived - have retained their value and his fieldwork methods have spread into a host of creative and intellectual pursuits.

With Adam Kuper, Liana Chua, Hermione Lee, Helen Macdonald and Lissant Bolton.

Producer: Tim Dee.

Scottish Ensembles


Presented by Martin Handley

The start of a week of concerts featuring Scottish music ensembles.

Stephane Deneve, the musical director of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra since 2005 has a great affinity with music from his native France and this programme includes typically two contrasting French works - the exhilarating and flamboyant showpiece for orchestra, Berlioz's Roman Carnival Overture and the equally dazzling work by the young French composer Guillaume Connesson called 'A Glimmer in the Age of Darkness' which the orchestra premiered in 2005. This is the first part in a stunning score entitled Cosmic Triptych. The colour and drama of both these works, using the full scope of this large symphony orchestra is matched in Respighi's masterpiece from his Roman Trilogy, The Pines of Rome - as grand an image of the great City as one can imagine painted with a huge range of percussion, brass, bells, celeste and organ and brass. On a smaller scale but equally dynamic in its own way, the Russian pianist Nicolai Lugansky, joins the orchestra to play Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto. Lugansky made his name overnight when he won the 1994 Tchaikovsky Piano Competition and has built a formidable international reputation for his interpretations. The concert is recorded at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall - the regular venue for the RSNO in Glasgow.

Berlioz - Roman Carnival Overture
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No 3
Connesson - Une lueur dans l'age sombre (A Glimmer in the Age of Darkness)

MON 21:15 Night Waves (b00qzwm1)
Tim Burton/Don Delillo/Jonathan Safran Foer

Tim Burton has carved a niche as American cinema's foremost purveyor of the gothic through films such as Edward Sissorhands and Sweeny Todd. Now he has turned his lens on Lewis Carol's classic fantasy, Alice in Wonderland. Philip Dodd finds out how Caroll's classic has fared under it's Burton makeover.

Don Delillo has long been a fixed point in American literature. His new novel is about a meeting of two men and one woman. One is Richad Elster, a scholar US govt. war advisor. For two years he has tried to make intellectual sense of the troop deployments, counterinsurgency orders and secret renditions of US foreign policy, but has now retreated to the desert to an isolated house. There he is joined by Jim Finley, a young filmmaker intent on documenting his experience. The two men talk and drink. Then they are joined by Elster's daughter Jessie, who dramatically alters the dynamic. When a devastating event follows, all the men's talk and accumulated meaning of conversation and isolation are thrown into question.

And Philip hears from another American novelist, Jonathan Safran Foer, on why we should all become vegetarians.

Joe Lovano's Us Five at Ronnie Scott's

Jez Nelson presents a giant of jazz in concert at Ronnie Scott's. American saxophonist Joe Lovano weaves together jazz past, present and future with his acclaimed quintet Us Five featuring James Weidman on piano, bassist Esperanza Spalding and two drummers - Otis Brown and Francesco Mela.

Joe Lovano was born in Ohio to a musical family in 1952. He rose to prominence during the 1980s playing with John Scofield's quartet and Paul Motion's bass-less trio with Bill Frisell. Since then he has led many of his own groups, developing a tone that combines Stan Getz's breathy melodic style and Coltrane's gruffness with a deep-seated knowledge of jazz composition to date.

Lisa Milne, Iain Burnside

One of the RSAMD's most successful alumni, Aberdeen-born soprano Lisa Milne, teams up with pianist Iain Burnside to perform a mixed programme of English, Scottish, German and French songs across three centuries. Songs and sonnets inspired by Shakespeare make up the first half of the programme with Purcell arranged by Tippett and Britten and balanced with a more childs-eye view of life with the famous Fontaine fables such as The Fox and the Crow etc set by the early 20th century french composer Andre Caplet. Songs from closer to home also feature with James MacMillan's atmospheric settings of three songs by the influential Scots poet William Soutar, Ballad, The Children and Scots Song. Presented by Mary Ann Kennedy.

Continuing a week of programmes featuring Scottish Orchestras and Ensembles

Popular violinist Nicola Benedetti makes a welcome return to City Halls with Sibelius' passionate concerto. The concert begins with the UK Premiere of a short piece by the young Swedish composer Benjamin Staern, music which takes its cue from its title Jubilate - a musical response to the phenomenon of spectators cheering with joy and the experience of being part of a powerful celebration. Staern's countryman Stefan Solyom closes this magnificent programme with Shostakovich's epic Tenth Symphony, the first he had composed since he was denounced by Stalin's regime in 1948. Completed soon after Stalin's death in 1953, the brutally brilliant scherzo is said to be a musical portrait of the Soviet tyrant.

TUE 21:15 Night Waves (b00r2ky9)
Hilary Mantel/Horace Walpole/Helene Cixous/Banksy

Rana Mitter talks to Booker Prize Winner Hilary Mantel about her winning novel, Wolf Hall. Set in the 1520s it charts the rise of Thomas Cromwell during the reign of Henry VIII. Cromwell was the son of a blacksmith but rose to the very top of English society through a combination of fortune and political brilliance. Rana Mitter talks with Hilary Mantel about the ways we see history and how you rediscover the personalities of an age from 500 years ago.

Horace Walpole's House, Strawberry Hill, is one of the most extraordinary to have graced London. An evolving Gothic folly modelled on the style, if not quite the scale, of the great Medieval cathedrals. Walpole filled his house with an eclectic collection of objects as impressive as they are random: the supposed hat of Cardinal Wolsey, a wooden cravat, suits of armour, paintings, drawings, books, a cabinet of miniatures and new commissions in the gothic style to complement and enhance the atmosphere of "gloomth". The V&A exhibition attempts recreate Walpole's pioneering collection in the context of the rooms at Strawberry Hill, where visitors experienced a journey through ancient and modern British history and European art. The critic and cultural historian, Sir Christopher Frayling, who's latest book is Horace Walpole's Cat, joins Rana to sift through Walpole's treasures and assesses his reputation and status.

And there's an interview with one France's most celebrated writers and thinkers Helene Cixous. Born in Algeria and raised in a German speaking Jewish household she's written about how growing up in the French colony fed her desire to fight violations of the human body and spirit.

And the art critic Sarah Kent gives her verdict on the street-artist, Banksy's latest project: a feature length film, Exit Through the Gift Shop.

Donizetti: The Elixir of Love

Donizetti - The Elixir of Love

Presented by Donald MacLeod

Scottish opera presents a revival of the 1994 production by Giles Havergal of this classic bel canto comic opera by Donizetti. A touching love story conducted by Francesco Corti with the leading roles of Adina and the naïve and love-lorn Nemorino taking respectively by Australian/Greek soprano Elena Xanthoudakis and Lithuanian tenor Edgaras Montvidas. Donald MacLeod's superb story-telling is enhanced and illustrated with comments from the Musical Director Francesco Corti, the Chief Executive Alex Reedijk and the two principal singers. Francesco Facini gives a winning performance of the comic role of Dr Dulcamara with a fine sense of comic timing and Marcin Bronikovski playing Belcore is a perfect mix of sexy bravado and pomposity. Recorded at Edinburgh's Festival theatre last November.

Confessions of a Justified Sinner

Night Waves is in Edinburgh to examine a book hailed as one of the true greats of world literature. Matthew
Sweet and guests, including writer Ian Rankin, theatre director Mark Thomson, forensic psychiatrist Anne
MacDonald and folklorist Valentina Bold, discuss James Hogg's The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.

It is a book with so many dimensions it has been described as the ultimate unclassifiable novel. It is a thriller with a psychological element, a political dimension and a religious spin.

Published anonymously in 1824, it contains a probing quest into the nature of religious fanaticism and Calvinist predestination and has been hugely influential. As writer Ian Rankin has noted without it there would be no Dr Jekyll or Miss Jean Brodie but it 'seems as fresh as the day it was written - and more relevant than ever.'.

Hebrides Ensemble

Edinburgh-based Hebrides Ensemble is Scotland's foremost contemporary music group and specialises in new, 20th century and 21st century chamber works as well as occasional chamber operas and other music for theatre. Led by the cellist and conductor, Will Conway, the group today features some of the finest chamber musicians in Scotland and Europe including Yann Ghiro (clarinet), Alexander Janiczek (violin), Philip Moore (piano) and Alison Mitchell (flute). Their programme which they will be touring around Scotland in March is inspired by the Italian Commedia del'Arte figure of Pierrot and features a work by Scottish-based composer Sally Beamish who began her career as a viola player in the Raphael ensemble. Her work is strongly informed by this experience and inspired by the colours created when matching solo instruments together in different relationships. Presented by Mary Ann Kennedy

Continuing a week of concerts featuring Scottish Orchestras and Ensembles

The Scottish Ensemble, normally an 11 piece string group were enhanced for this concert with two horns to perform the Berio but also in an innovative educational project with gifted young players from St Mary's Music School in Edinburgh and students from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. The Scottish Ensemble is led from the violin by Jonathan Morton and was joined on this occasion by the group's previous Artistic Director, Clio Gould who played the fiendish solo part in the Berio and joined him for the Bach Double Concerto. This programme demonstrates the eclecticism of the ensemble's repertoire which ranges from contemporary through romantic repertoire to baroque and includes Tippett's jazz-influenced Concerto for Double String Orchestra, Berio's Corale based on the Sequenza for solo violin, Bach's Double Violin Concerto, Vaughan Williams beloved Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and an encore of the finale of Grieg's Holberg Suite. An extraordinary experience for those young players working side by side with musicians at the top of their field.

Violet Gibson/Burying Ancient Remains/Michael Foot/Nicholas Christakis

On 7th April 1926 Benito Mussolini was standing on the steps of the Capitol in Rome when a young woman raised a pistol and fired it at him. The bullet missed his head and struck his nose injuring the dictator but not killing him. The would be assassin was an Anglo-Irish noblewoman called Violet Gibson and her fate was to languish in a mental asylum for the rest of her life. Anne McElvoy talks to Frances Stoner Saunders about Violet Gibson and what motivated her desperate act amidst a life of great wealth and priviledge.

English Heritage has conducted a public survey on the issue of whether or not it is right to seek reburial of excavated human remains in Britain.This was prompted by a demand submitted to the National Trust and English Heritage in 2006 by a Pagan group with reference to bones in the Avebury museum. In the week that the findings are due to be published, Anne is joined by archaeologist Mike Pitts, Piotr Bienkowski of Manchester Museum, and Pagan author and founder of Honouring the Ancient Dead, Emma Restall-Orr to discuss the differing perspectives of scientists, museums and religious groups.

Anthony Howard remembers Michael Foot, and looks at the tradition of the literary politician.

Anne speaks to Harvard social scientist Nicholas Christakis about his new co-authored book Connected: The Surprising Power of our Social Networks And How They Shape Our Lives. Can your friend's friend really make you fat?

Scottish Ensembles

Scottish Chamber Orchestra/Ticciati

Presented by Martin Handley

The final concert in this week of concerts featuring Scottish Orchestras and Ensembles.

Principal conductor, Robin Ticciati who took us his post with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, at the beginning of the 2009-2010 season, conducts Berlioz' choral masterpiece L'enfance du Christ. Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill takes the role of Mary and is joined by tenor, Yann Beuron (Centurion, Narrator), bass, Matthew Rose taking the key role of Herod as well as the Ishmaelite Father and baritone, Ronan Collet (Polydorus, Joseph). The 50-strong SCO chorus take a key role in the action, notably in the famous 'Shepherds farewell' as the Holy Family flee to Egypt but also as a choir of invisible angels (seated at a distance from the rest of the choir right at the back of the choirstalls) at the end of Part 1(Herod's dream) and in the glorious and mystical climax to the work.

This is Robin Ticciati's second appearance with the SCO as Principal Conductor and also his second broadcast with them for Radio 3.

FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00r2lhq)
Lopa Kothari

Sounds from around the world, with Lopa Kothari, including a specially recorded studio session by clarinettist Arun Ghosh.

Ghosh grew up in the north of England playing Western classical music and listening to the recordings of Indian classical instrumentalists such as Bismillah Khan, Hariprasad Chaurasia, Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan. After hearing Courtney Pine and discovering jazz he started to adapt the melodies and rhythms of Indian classical music into his own jazz-based compositions. His energetic live performances today also reflect his immersion in rock, indie and hip-hop. Arun Ghosh is joined for this session by Shabaka Hutchings (tenor saxophone), Nilesh Gulhane (tabla), Kishon Khan (piano), Liran Donin (double bass) and Rastko Rasic (drums).
