SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00ss1pp)
Opera Profiles

Alessandro Scarlatti's Griselda

Griselda is the last surviving and 114th Opera by Alessandro Scarlatti, maybe the greatest composer of his generation. Written a full 42 years after his first Opera, it was curiously neglected for a long time and after the premiere of the work in 1721, it was not to receive another performance until late in the 20th Century. Catherine Bott explores Griselda and the reasons for its neglect, joined by the eminent early music expert and advocate of Scarlatti, Nicholas McGegan.
This programme forms part of the Early Music Show's monthly reflections on great Baroque operas, presented as part of the "Opera on the BBC" festivities.

SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00sq4wr)
Dorothea Roschmann, Malcolm Martineau, Mathias Glander

The leading German soprano Dorothea Röschmann has put together a fascinating programme for her live BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime concert. Together with pianist Malcolm Martineau she begins with three of Schubert's so-called 'Mignon' songs, settings of texts by Goethe. Next comes a selection from Mahler's folk-inspired 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn' and finally seven ripely romantic songs by the young Alban Berg, written in the early years of the 20th century.
Presented by Fiona Talkington.

Three songs from Goethe's 'Wilhelm Meister', D877 nos. 2, 3 & 4:
Heiss mich nicht reden
So lasst mich scheinen
Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt

Six songs from 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn':
Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen
Wer hat dies Liedlein erdacht
Das irdische Leben
Lob des hohen Verstands
Verlor'ne Müh

Seven Early Songs

Dorothea Röschmann (soprano)
Malcolm Martineau (piano).

SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00n6ykp)
An Appalachian Road Trip

Mount Airy Fiddlers Convention

In the first of two programmes recorded on-location for World Routes, broadcaster, writer and musician Banning Eyre embarks on his own Appalachian roadtrip to discover and record the uniquely American folk music that was born in the southern Appalachian mountains through the 18th and 19th Centuries.

He visits the small town of Mount Airy, in Surry County, North Carolina, home to the Mount Airy Fiddlers Convention, where he meets the extraordinary players and singers that are keeping this music alive, and finds out how Old Time music is the direct precursor of what we now call Country and Bluegrass.

In an interview with musician and field recordist Mike Seeger, recorded just a few months before he died, Banning discovers the roots of the music in the parallel histories of the European settlers and African slaves, and how post-Emancipation a distinctly American music was forged from the interplay of the African banjo and the European fiddle. Surry County musician Paul Brown explains the record companies' part in defining Old Time music as a predominantly white occupation, and what's so speacial about this part of the country. He visits local radio station WPAQ to hear how they are keeping this traditional rural music alive, and tries the festival delicacy that is deep-fried Oreos.

Producer: Peter Meanwell


SAT 16:00 Jazz Library (b00ss1vz)
Peggy Lee

In later life, reclusive and swathed in a jewelled scarf, Peggy Lee had come a long way from her origins as a jazz singer. In this programme, Gwyneth Herbert, herself a fine interpreter of Lee's songs, explores the singer's earlier work, with Benny Goodman, as a broadcasting artist and as a pure jazz singer. As well as Peggy Lee standards such as Why Don't You Do Right and Fever, there are many examples of her jazz excellence in lesser known songs.

SAT 17:00 Jazz Record Requests (b00ss1w1)
Geoffrey Smith presents a selection of listeners' jazz requests.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b00ss1w3)
Donizetti's Maria Stuarda

Donizetti's 3-act opera Maria Stuarda was inspired by Schiller's play, and is based on fictional events leading to the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, and caused such controversy that it was originally banned in 1834. After then the opera was occasionally performed in Italy but in a censored version, and the opera's twentieth century revival was in 1958.
The focus of the opera is on the fictional and confrontational meeting between Mary Stuart, the Catholic Queen of Scotland, and the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I, resulting in Mary's condemnation and execution. The opera is now considered one of Donizetti's most powerful and compelling, culminating in a dramatic final scene.
Sarah Connolly sings the title role of Mary Stuart, and Antonia Cifrone sings Elizabeth. This new production by Opera North is directed by Antony McDonald, and is conducted by Guido Johannes Rumstadt, who makes his debut with the company.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

Mary Stuart ..... Sarah Connolly (mezzo-soprano)
Queen Elizabeth ..... Antonia Cifrone (soprano)
Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester ..... Bülent Bezdüz (tenor)
Sir William Cecil ..... David Kempster (baritone)
George Talbot, Earl of Shrewsbury ..... Frédéric Bourreau (bass)
Hannah Kennedy ..... Michelle Walton (soprano)

Orchestra and Chorus of Opera North conducted by Guido Johannes Rumstadt.

SAT 21:15 Between the Ears (b00ntb51)
A Season in Hell

"Une Saison en Enfer" was written between April and August 1873 in London and France, when the eighteen-year-old Rimbaud was in the throes of an intense, transgressive and destructive relationship with Verlaine. It's one of the most remarkable pieces of prose poetry ever written; a mixture of autobiography and enigmatic dream sequence in which Rimbaud looks back in despair over his life as a poet. It combines lucid self-appraisal with demented vision and moves with extraordinary agility between hyper-realism and hallucinatory surrealism; in its synthesis of sounds, colours, odours and intensely visual images it one of the highest achievements of symbolist writing. The twenty-five pages of 'A Season in Hell', here cut to a third of its length, are both a staggering testimony to and a tortured recantation of Rimbaud's poetic credo, the 'disordering of all the senses'. Narrated by Carl Prekopp.
Composer Elizabeth Purnell has created a soundscape for the work which includes composed music, field recordings and processed sound in a raw response to the words. She set the poems specifically for Robert Wyatt whose voice in its high, delicate register suggests a beyond-the-grave alter-ego to the young Rimbaud. This version is a fierce abridgement of the original, but offers a startling insight into its power and beauty. It contains some language that might now give offence. Producer Sara Davies.

SAT 21:45 Pre-Hear (b00ss1yr)

Time, Shadow and Silence - elements that suffuse the the music of French composer Henri Dutilleux, now in his 90s. He has, arguably, been eclipsed in the public's awareness by the work of his compatriot and near-contemporary, Olivier Messiaen. Yet Dutilleux has always worked meticulously and steadily, creating a huge body of works which are now emerging and being feted as the products of a deeply musical and fastidious philosophical mind. Pre Hear presents two works from the past 45 years: Three Preludes for solo piano from 1973 - 1988 (played by Robert Levin, piano); and The Shadows of Time (1995-97), for orchestra and children's voices, written for Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony who perform it here.

SUN 00:00 Jazz Library (b00jksl1)
Heath Brothers

Few families have produced three such exceptional musical brothers as Percy, Jimmy and Tootie Heath, a bassist, saxophonist and drummer who have worked at the highest level. On one of their last visits to London before Percy's death in 2005, Alyn Shipton talked to all three of them about their collective and individual careers in jazz, introducing not only the finest albums they made together, but their discs with other musicians as varied as Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon and Wes Montgomery.

The Heath Brothers band was a legendary ensemble in jazz from the 1970s to the death of bassist Percy Heath in 2005. All three brothers, Percy, saxophonist Jimmy and drummer Tootie, were masters of their art, and there was a collective magic about their appearances together. But in this programme Percy also talks about his work with Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Quartet, Jimmy remembers his earliest records with John Coltrane when they were fellow members of Dizzy Gillespie's band, and Tootie recalls the thrill of accompanying Wes Montgomery and Dexter Gordon. We also hear their work together on the albums 'Triple Threat' and 'As We Were Saying'.

Cecil Balmond

Structural engineer Cecil Balmond, deputy chairman of Ove Arup, has collaborated with some of the world's leading architects and artists on some of the most daring and celebrated contemporary projects. A frequent collaborator, Anish Kapoor, describes him as 'the world's greatest engineer', and he has worked with Kapoor on the 2002 Tate Modern installation Marsyas, the Tees Valley Giants, and on the 155m-high ArcelorMittal Orbit for the 2012 London Olympics. He has also partnered the Japanese architect Toyo Ito on the 2002 Serpentine Pavilion. In 2006 Balmond made his own debut as an architect, designing a footbridge in Coimbra, Portugal.

His musical tastes, as discussed with Michael Berkeley, reveal fascinating links between his own work and music. He expounds on the idea of architecture as 'frozen music', especially in the music of Bach, represented here by movements from the Cello Suite No.1 in G. His mother was a piano teacher, and he was brought up with the music of Chopin, his chosen example today being the Fantaisie-Impromptu No.4 in C sharp minor, played by Artur Rubinstein. He himself plays classical guitar, and was introduced to John Williams while at university, so another of his choices is Paganini's Grand Sonata in A major, played by Williams. He loves jazz, and has chosen the Benny Goodman Quartet playing 'Runnin' Wild', followed by part of the opening movement of Brahms's Clarinet Quintet in B minor. He loves Beethoven, especially the symphonies, the piano sonatas and the late quartets, but today has chosen a song (Adelaide), which he feels is both heartfelt and also light relief from the great structures Beethoven set in motion. Finally there's a choral piece from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, which reminds him of time spent in Nigeria.

First broadcast in June 2010.

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

Stephen Johnson examines the ideas and meaning of Mahler's great symphony of song, Das Lied von der Erde, through the chamber version made by Arnold Schoenberg and Rainer Riehn after Mahler's death. For superstitious reasons, Mahler would not call it his Symphony No 10 (too many composers in the past had died while writing a tenth symphony) and Mahler's own frail health at the time strengthened his fatalistic instincts.

The Song of the Earth, is based on translations of Chinese poems, and as Stephen explains, there is a strong Eastern philosophical influence throughout the entire work.

Stephen's workshop is illustrated by the Manchester Camerata and Douglas Boyd, with singers Jane Irwin and Peter Wedd, and the programme was recorded as part of the Manchester Mahler celebrations at the start of 2010.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00ss24p)
Coleridge in Gottingen

When William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge decided to leave Somerset in 1798, they set off together for Germany. Wordsworth retreated to a cottage in Goslar where he stayed with his sister Dorothy and began to write the poem that, published posthumously,would seal his reputation - The Prelude. In direct contrast Coleridge threw himself into the life of intellectual society at the University town of Gottingen, learning the language, reading the leading German Romantics Goethe and Schiller, and steeping himself in the philosophical thoughts of Kant and Schelling. When he returned to England he brought back a deep knowledge of the German Romantic movement which informed his future writing and his influence on the writers and thinkers who visited him.

John Worthen travels to Gottingen and walks in the footsteps of Coleridge, a task made easy in that Coleridge wrote copious notebooks which recorded everything - from his enjoyment of the German beer, to the lectures he attended, and his love of the countryside.

John Worthen travels into the Harz mountains and up the highest peak, the Brocken, which Coleridge scaled twice in the hope of catching sight of the spectre and the setting for Goethe's Walpurgisnacht in Faust.

In Germany he talks to Professor Barbara Schaff, lecturer in English literature at Gottingen University, as well as to German students who are studying the Romantic poets. In England he meets Dr Seamus Perry of Balliol College Oxford in the British Library, where they handle the treasured notebooks that Coleridge filled with his observations. He also talks to Professor Timothy Fulford of Nottingham Trent University about the legacy of Coleridge's German visit in his own and others' writings.

Jazz Line-Up this week features two world class musicians. First, Brad Mehldau, talking to Claire Martin about his new album 'Highway Rider'. It's a double-album featuring his usual trio of drummer Jeff Ballard and Larry Grenadier on bass, as well as guest saxophonist Joshua Redman, with more drumming from Matt Chamberlain and a chamber orchestra. Mehldau talks about his scoring for String Orchestra and how he chooses the places to improvise.

Martin Taylor is one of the world's leading guitarists, with a distinct melodic sound. Having just released a new project "Spirit of Django", Martin plays a solo set exclusively for Jazz Line-Up and experiments with one of the guitars by arranging the strings on the fret in a different order. Hear the results on Jazz Line-Up.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00fhpbz)
Michael Haydn

Episode 1

He was respected by Mozart, revered by Schubert, and regarded during his lifetime as the leading contemporary composer of church music. Who was he? The answer is Michael - yes, Michael - Haydn. Johann Michael Haydn, to give him his full name, has come down to posterity as little more than a footnote in the biography of his celebrated older brother, Joseph. After all, Joseph Haydn was 'father' of the symphony and the string quartet - and Michael wasn't.

Michael Haydn may be less historically significant than Joseph, but he's nonetheless an important composer in his own right, and his achievement has been overshadowed in a way that it might perhaps not have been had he borne a different family name. Michael Haydn has come down to posterity as little more than a footnote in the biography of his celebrated older brother, Joseph. Donald Macleod takes him out of those footnotes and into the footlights, placing him centre-stage for a change - a position he can occupy quite unapologetically and without having to ask his big brother's permission.

This episode sees him take up his first job - as Music Director to the Bishop of Grosswardein - and move on to his second, as concertmaster to the archiepiscopal court at Salzburg, where he was to remain until his death 43 years later, working alongside Leopold Mozart and, for a time, his son Wolfgang. On the playlist: Haydn's first symphony; an early liturgical work, Christus factus est; his only surviving piano composition; and an extract from one of his most brilliantly virtuosic serenades.

MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00ss2c6)
Genia Kuhmeier, Helmut Deutsch

Presented by Katie Derham. Live from London's Wigmore Hall, Austrian Soprano Genia Kuhmeier sings Beethoven, Schubert, Dvorak and Strauss, accompanied by Helmut Deutsch.

Schlechtes Wetter, Op. 69 No. 5
Meinem Kinde, Op. 37 No. 3
Cäcilie, Op. 27 No. 2

Genia Kühmeier (soprano)
Helmut Deutsch (piano)

Genia Kuhmeier is one of the finest sopranos of her generation, highly acclaimed for her Mozart, which is appropriate as she was born in Salzburg. She brings to today's Wigmore Hall an intensity honed on the opera stages of the world, and in Helmut Deutsch she has one of the pre-eminent accompanists.

Genia Kuhmeier begins with 2 songs Beethoven wrote as part of the incidental music to Goethe's play Egmont - Klarchen, the Count of Egmont's mistress, desperately tries to save her lover, who prefers to face death rather than dishonour under the oppression of the Duke of Alba. In particular, "Freudvoll und leidvoll", contains the line: "Heavenly Joy, Deadly Sorrow" - which has been used as a definition of Romanticism.

Four Schubert songs follow, the first also to a text by Goethe. Gretchen is seated at her spinning wheel, with the piano's descriptive accompaniment underpinning her despair at the loss of her lover, and in the last song, Die junge Nonne, the young nun has turned her back up on her earthly passions, and awaits release from this life into heavenly joy.

Dvorak's Gypsy Melodies take us away from Viennese lieder. These songs are filled with Dvorak's characteristic Czech-ness and Genia Kuhmeier sings them in Czech.

Genia Kuhmeier and Helmut Deutsch conclude their recital with songs by Richard Strauss, and the final song, Cacilie, continues the theme of passion, both earthly and heavenly.

Howard Brenton, Perfection, 'Jewish Comedy'

Philip Dodd talks to one of our most prolific and provocative playwrights, Howard Brenton, who has three major productions opening across the country.

Brenton discusses his new adaptation of Robert Tressell's novel The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists, which premieres at the Liverpool Everyman Theatre this week before going to Chichester.

He also talks about updating Georg Buchner's play about the French Revolution, Danton's Death, for the National Theatre and about his new play for the Globe Theatre which dramatises the life of Henry VIII's doomed wife Anne Boleyn, exploring both her passion for the King and her love of dangerous ideas.

Also on the programme: Perfection. Our drive for perfection underpins everything we do. In education, art, religion and technology, perfection is held to be the goal that most people strive for. Inventions such as the motorcar, mobile phone and computer have all come from this need to create the perfect life. But should we be suspcious of perfection - can we ever attain it and would we be happy with it if we did? Philip Dodd finds out more with neuroscientist Mark Lythgoe, psychotherapist Susie Orbach and engineer and scientist Mark Miodownik.

And Philip is joined by writer and comic David Schneider and the critic Jason Solomons to take the temperature of so-called 'Jewish Comedy' today, and to discuss how it has evolved, as the latest Woody Allen film - starring Larry David - opens nationwide.

Producer: Dymphna Flynn.

David Murray and the Gwo-Ka Masters

Jez Nelson presents American saxophonist David Murray with Guadeloupean drummer-vocalists the Gwo-Ka Masters, recorded in concert at the Bath Festival. This eight piece Creole project is an exploration of Murray's roots and features the boulagyel, a traditional Guadeloupean version of the beat box, alongside ka-drums, guitar, trumpet, bass and Murray's fiery saxophone. Murray has recorded prolifically since the mid 1970s, when he moved to New York and became part of the city's creative loft scene. He is known for his technique, particularly his use of circular breathing, and for the breadth of his work; he is as comfortable in a free music context as he is playing within more formal structures, and has traveled extensively exploring music from around the world.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Robert Abel.

Michael Haydn

Episode 2

Donald Macleod explores two Michael Haydn works of markedly different character, beginning with the Concertino for Horn, which showcased the talents of one of the virtuoso players at Haydn's disposal in the archiepiscopal court at Salzburg.

This contrasts with his Requiem for Archbishop Sigismund, a dark and brooding piece written to commemorate the passing of his late, lamented employer, but informed too by the composer's grief at the death of his only child. This is one of the works that established Haydn's reputation as a composer of liturgical music - and one which Mozart took as a model for his own Requiem.

The great French comic Jacques Tati wrote the script in 1956 as a personal letter to his estranged daughter, and Chomet has realised this story of a father and daughter who travel across France to Prague which stars an animated version of Tati himself.

There is a discussion of the idea of resentment, and its role in shaping history. Does an understanding of this emotional driver offer a new way to understand conflicts of the past and present?Anne is joined by Matthew Taylor, who was Chief Adviser on Political Strategy to the Prime Minister during the last government, the political theorist Alex Callinicos, and the historian Kenneth Minogue.

And Night Waves theatre critic Susannah Clapp reviews the new play by Laura Wade, author of 'Posh' the recent stage hit set in an elite Oxford student dining society. This time Wade bringing her own take on Alice in Wonderland to her native Sheffield.

Michael Haydn

Episode 3

Donald Macleod documents a major change in Haydn's life, with the arrival on the scene of the new archbishop of Salzburg, Hieronymus Colloredo - later to become infamous as the man who gave Mozart a kicking. Colloredo instituted a radical programme of reform that kept Haydn busy producing new music for the liturgy. Perhaps as a direct result, he composed relatively little chamber music - the Notturno in G for string quintet is one of the finest examples. (Mozart is known to have played viola in at least one performance - in Munich, in 1777.).

Tetro, Christie's Auction, Art Forgeries, Matthew Crawford, Welcome to Thebes

Matthew Sweet and film critic Ian Christie review Francis Ford Coppola's new film Tetro, examining the director's attempts to reinvent himself.

This evening Christie's are holding an auction of Impressionist and Modern art predicted to be the most valuable art auction ever held in London. Highlights include Picasso's 1903 masterpiece Portrait of Angel Fernandex de Soto (The Absinthe Drink). Godfrey Barker hot-foots it from the auction.

As the National Gallery mounts an exhibition of paintings exposed as fakes and mistakes, the gallery's head of scientific research, Dr Ashok Roy, joins art critic Sarah Kent to discuss the problems with authenticity in art and the latest techniques used to detect forgeries

Are we losing our better selves by spending our lives in offices? Matthew Crawford, philosopher, mechanic and author of The Case for Working with your Hands argues that consumer culture encourages detatchment from the objects on which our daily lives depend.

And Susannah Clapp reviews Welcome to Thebes by Moira Buffini at the National Theatre. In her latest play Buffini draws on Greek Mythology to tell a very modern story of an encounter between the world's richest and the world's poorest countries set in the aftermath of a brutal war.

Michael Haydn

Episode 4

An examination of Michael Haydn's Missa Sancti Hieronymi, written to mark the 10th anniversary of the accession of his boss, Hieronymus Colloredo, to the archbishopric of Salzburg. It quickly became known as the 'Oboe Mass', on account of its highly unusual use of six oboes. Leopold Mozart was critical of what he regarded as Haydn's heavy drinking, but lavish in his praise of this impressive work, whose first performance he attended. The programme concludes with Haydn's Symphony in G, which until recently was thought to be by Wolfgang Mozart.

Wolfgang Tillmans, Die Meistersinger, Archeological Remains, Lise Eliot

Anne McElvoy meets the German artist Wolfgang Tillmans, who in 2000 became the first photographer and the first non-British artist to win the Turner Prize. A new exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in London showcases his unconventional portraits, which he often just pins to the gallery walls, and his fascination with photography's chemical processes.

Susan Hitch reviews the new Welsh National Opera production of Wagner's monumental Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, in which Bryn Terfel makes his debut as the shoe maker Hans Sachs.

Archaeological expert Mike Pitts looks at recent scientific developments in the identification of remains that reveal surprising levels of migration and movement in the Europe of the first Millennium.

And Girls are innately empathetic and terrible at maths, whereas Boys are naturally good at science but can't focus in the classroom. These familiar contentions are the stuff of homespun wisdom as well as apparently respectable popular science literature. But neuroscientist Lise Eliot argues in her book Pink Brain, Blue Brain that study after study proves that these differences are not innate at all - and almost entirely to do with a child's upbringing. She debates this issue with medical professor Raymond Tallis.

Producer: Timothy Prosser.

Michael Haydn

Episode 5

Michael Haydn composed 20 symphonies during the 1780s, but his Symphony in A major, written in 1789, was to be his last. Perhaps he decided he had nothing further to contribute to a genre which already included Mozart's 'Jupiter', composed the previous year. Or perhaps he was simply kept too busy writing church music.
Towards the end of 1800, Haydn's cosy and somewhat uneventful life was rudely interrupted by history - Napoleon's forces occupied Salzburg, and his apartment was looted. He was robbed of two silver watches and a month's wages, and the following year he travelled to Vienna in search of new income. One result was a commission from Empress Maria Theresa. Another was the offer of the position of Kapellmeister at Eisenstadt, taking over the reins from his brother Joseph - to his subsequent regret, he turned it down.
The story of Michael Haydn closes with another Maria Theresa commission - the Missa sub Titulo Sti. Leopoldi, written for the Feast of the Holy Innocents on 28 December 1805 and appropriately featuring boys voices. It's a charming work and a fitting conclusion to half a century of extraordinary musical productivity.

FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00ss3zg)
Paul Curreri

Sounds from around the world with Lopa Kothari. Plus a studio session with the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Paul Curreri from Charlottesville Virginia. A talented artist, he'd been to art school and written over 300 songs before he devoted his life to music. After a throat injury in 2008 and a forced break from performance, he's back for a 2010 tour.

Raised in Richmond, Virginia, Paul now makes his home in Charlottesville with his wife the songwriter/guitarist Devon Sproule. Though he grew up playing music, he ended up enrolling at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) to pursue painting. Following a spot at New York's Knitting Factory in 2001, Curreri received several tour invitations from Kelly Joe Phelps. Over the next four years, the two would play over 100 concerts together.
In April 2002, independent Brooklyn-based label City Salvage Records released Curreri's first album, From Long Gones to Hawkmoth. In June 2003, City Salvage Records released Curreri's second album, Songs for Devon Sproule dedicated to his future wife. Two albums followed and Curreri's fifth album, The Velvet Rut, was released in the UK on Tin Angel Records in June 2007. Curreri played all the accompanying instruments himself.
In July 2008, Curreri suffered a major throat injury, which caused him to cancel the majority of his remaining concerts for the year. Reports from Charlottesville are that he can be seen riding his vintage Honda CB750 motorcycle through the countryside. In a recent interview, Curreri called the injury "a gift," saying, "I'm looking to expand my perspective. I'm looking to find what I didn't have time to find before. I'm looking to appreciate."
2010 has seen a return to touring for Paul.
