9.30am Building a Library – Iain Burnside on Haydn’s Piano Sonata in E flat major XVI:52

Iain Burnside picks a personal favourite from among the recordings of Haydn's Piano Sonata in Eb, H 16:52

Written in 1794, this is the last and one of the greatest of Haydn's piano sonatas. In this piece Haydn expanded the sonata structure beyond its normal scope, explored unusual harmonies and developed his thematic material with unusual rigour. Haydn wrote it for the outstanding pianist Therese Jansen, who lived in London at the time of his visits there in the 1790s.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (m0001hll)
Delius and the Sound of Place

Tom Service is in Paris to meet Daniel Grimley, author of a new book, Delius and the Sound of Place. Together they travel an hour's train journey south of the city to the village of Grez-sur-Loing, where the Bradford-born composer lived from 1897 until the end of his life in 1934, to challenge some of the assumptions made about Delius' music. At the British Library back in London, Joanna Bullivant and Amelie Roper show Tom some of the original manuscripts.

At the Philharmonie, Tom joins the conductor, airline pilot and Paris resident Daniel Harding as he prepares for a performance of Mahler's first symphony with the Orchestre de Paris. Harding explains his reasons for leaving the orchestra after his 3-year contract, and reveals the similarities and differences between his two passions, music and flying.

Plus the sounds of Paris itself with Sara Adhitya, author of Musical Cities: Listening to Urban Design and Planning.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b1p8lt)
Hear how instruments sing, with cellist Matthew Barley

Matthew Barley puts down his cello for a couple of hours and wonders just how Stravinsky brings a Russian character to his ballet Petrushka. He also analyses the mind-boggling technique of a classically trained Cuban jazz pianist, and compares the way a singer has to control their instrument that is their voice - in much the same way as a cellist does. Matthew finds a new way to listen to Barber's famous Adagio and introduces us to an endearing little piano piece by John Cage.

At 2 o'clock Matthew introduces his Must Listen piece - a rarely performed, beautiful work in a recording in which, according to Matthew, cellist Yo Yo Ma plays "at his very best".

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.

Bill Frisell concert highlights, Archie Shepp

Highlights of a rare solo performance from guitar icon Bill Frisell recorded live at Cadogan Hall, as part of the 2018 London Jazz Festival.

Since the 1980s Bill Frisell has been one of the most revered guitarists in jazz, known for his subtly, imagination and wide-ranging output, which draws on classical chamber music, folk and Americana and even includes the occasional Beatles cover. In this concert he revisits highlights from across his career, including repertoire from the early recordings for the ECM label that made his name.

Also in the programme, legendary saxophonist and civil rights activist Archie Shepp shares his musical inspirations, along with pearls of wisdom and cherished memories, of his great friend and mentor John Coltrane and blues icon B.B. King.

Presented by Jumoké Fashola and produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0b1pb4c)
Lubaina Himid

For Lubaina Himid, winning the Turner Prize is recognition for thirty-five years of work as a painter, curator and installation artist. Her work is witty, vibrantly coloured, and provocative; in her most famous work, "Naming the Money", she filled galleries with more than a hundred huge and very beautiful cut-outs of African figures from the past - the forgotten black servants and musicians who were brought back by their slave-masters to live in Britain in the 18th century.

Lubaina Himid herself was born in Zanzibar, Tanzania, but came here as a baby, first to Blackpool and then to London. She now lives in Preston, where she's Professor of Contemporary Art at the University of Central Lancashire. She was awarded an MBE for services to black women's art.
She says "My work is a mixture of humour, celebration, optimism and fury. I want to challenge the order of things."

In Private Passions, she talks about how winning the Turner Prize has changed her perspective, and about how she creates a musical soundtrack to her installations. She pays tribute to her aunt, who played the violin and brought music into the house, and talks honestly about how difficult it was to make a living as a young artist. Musical choices include Bellini, Bruch, Janacek, and Nina Simone.

In this programme we will explore the history of the 18th-century Portuguese modinha and myths that surround the creation of this fascinating genre. The themes are recognisable, the melodies haunting, and the genre is still able to stir the passions today as it did over two hundred years ago.

The Birthday Party

The Birthday Party by Harold Pinter
Stanley, an erstwhile pianist lives in a dingy seaside boarding house run by Meg and Petey. He is comfortable there, like a surrogate son. Two sinister strangers turn up - Goldberg and McCann. They claim to know him from the past. They turn Stanley's birthday party into a menacing and terrifying encounter. Franz Kafka meets Donald McGill in Pinter’s iconic comedy of menace.

Stanley ..... Toby Jones
Goldberg ..... Henry Goodman
McCann ..... Stephen Rae
Meg ..... Maggie Steed
Petey ..... Peter Wight
Lulu ..... Jaime Winstone

Director/Producer Gary Brown

An Irishman and a Jew walk into a seaside boarding house. And what? A parable about power and persecution? Or maybe it's marginalised minorities taking their revenge against seedy Albion? Pinter's slippery and sly black comedy has a huge resonance for today.

Harold Pinter was one of the writers championed by the Third Programme – and in the late 1950s commissioned one of his early plays before he had his first stage hit. Pinter himself acknowledged the role the Third had had in his own cultural education. For the 70th anniversary, Drama on 3 presents a new production of The Birthday Party, now considered a Pinter classic, but which on its first London opening only lasted a week.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09kqcxf)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Schooldays

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

At the age of only 16 the shy, bespectacled Schubert was at school. Yet he was not concentrating on his main studies, being far too distracted by music, much to the disappointment of his father. Today's programme focuses on the year 1813 in Schubert's life, and we hear his String Quartet No.10, D87. Other music includes settings of songs by Schiller and Körner, an opera aria, and movements from his first symphony. Plus we learn about Schubert's sudden rage over his singing rather loudly in a tavern. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Wigmore Monday Lunchtimes: Augustin Hadelich and Charles Owen

Live from Wigmore Hall, London, Italian-born German violinist Augustin Hadelich is joined by British pianist Charles Owen for a programme including Brahms's muscular Sonata No.1, and John Adams's Road Movies - the title of which the composer describes as ‘total whimsy’, probably suggested by the ‘groove’ in the piano part; the pianist is required to play in an increasing ‘swing mode’ throughout. Between them, one of Ysaye's virtuosic solo sonatas - the fourth, dedicated to the composer's contemporary Fritz Kreisler.

Presented by Fiona Talkington.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0001h87)
Kirill Karabits conducts the BSO in Stravinsky, Walton and Shostakovich

Recorded at the Anvil, Basingstoke, on 1st December.

Presented by Martin Handley.

Kirill Karabits conducts the BSO in Stravinsky, Walton and Shostakovich.

Stravinsky: Pulcinella Suite

Walton: Cello Concerto

8.15: Interval

Shostakovich: Symphony No.1

Johannes Moser, cello
Kirill Karabits, conductor

Shostakovich was just 19 when he wrote his First Symphony as a graduation exercise in composition at the Leningrad Conservatory, but it speaks in his own distinctive voice, juxtaposing the ironic with the romantic, the intimate with the bombastic.
Pulcinella marked an important turning point in Stravinsky’s career, heralding his “neo-classical'' style which was to dominate his later works. Unlike his earlier ballets, characterised by huge orchestras and innovative rhythms, it is simple and sparse, using Pergolesi’s melodies and bass lines with little change. Walton’s Cello Concerto is introspective and reflective, combing romanticism with sizzling virtuosity.

MON 22:45 The Essay (m0001hp4)
Writing Music

Hermione Hoby on Steve Reich

Annie Proulx wrote, in The Shipping News: "You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music". In this series of Radio 3's The Essay authors meditate on a piece of music that has formed the backdrop to their craft. In five intimate radio essays they explore how pieces inspire creativity through mood, narrative or structure, inviting us to step into the music – and the author’s – inner world.

New York based author and journalist Hermione Hoby has listened to Steve Reich’s Music For 18 Musicians almost every day for the last seven years. In this short radio essay she reveals how this classic piece of minimalism helps her write.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09kqdyg)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Composing for money

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

In 1816, a year in which he made his first money from composing, 19-year-old Schubert was locked in a room and forced to compose by his 'friends', friends who went on to encourage him to leave his teaching work and devote himself to music.

We hear one of the songs he gifted to his first love (sadly not resulting in the marriage he longed for), part of an early setting of the Mass, settings of poems by Goethe, and his eleventh String Quartet.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (m0001hzl)
A classic sandwich with a twist

Since their 1996 debut the Jerusalem Quartet have become acknowledged as one of the world's leading string quartets. Their programme tonight puts a generous Gallic filling in between two slices of classic Viennese bread and butter.

Haydn's Op. 76 set of six string quartets are accepted as his greatest achievement in the genre he himself had invented and developed over more than 30 years. He completed them towards the end of the 18th century and No. 1, like all of the set, acted as a spur on his chippy 'I never learned anything from him, anyway' former pupil, Beethoven. The younger composer was determined to take on and best Haydn in all the key areas he'd excelled at, and even before Beethoven completed his Op. 74 quartet in 1809 he had already changed string quartet history forever on his own characteristically uncompromising terms.

At the end of the 19th century, less than 70 years after Beethoven's death, Debussy composed his one and only string quartet, its shimmering textures, exotic scales and unresolved chords a world away from Classical Vienna. Debussy had very deliberately (and with a little bit of exaggeration) nailed his colours to the mast: "I am more and more convinced that music, by its very nature, is something that cannot be cast into a traditional and fixed form. It is made up of colours and rhythms. The rest is a lot of humbug invented by frigid imbeciles riding on the backs of the Masters – who, for the most part, wrote almost nothing but period music. Bach alone had an idea of the truth."

Recorded on Saturday at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre and presented by Ivan Hewett.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m0001hzn)
Writing and Frankness

Deborah Levy, Adam Phillips and Amia Srinivasan join Matthew Sweet at the British Library for a Royal Society of Literature debate.

Why do we read? Why do we write? What do we reveal when we do? A writer, a psychotherapist and a philosopher discuss what we reveal about ourselves through literature and the difference, if any, between non-fiction, novels and the psychotherapist’s couch.
Deborah Levy is a playwright, novelist and poet. In her ‘living autobiography’ The Cost of Living, she considers what it means to live with value, meaning and pleasure. Adam Phillips is a practising psychoanalyst and Visiting Professor in the English department at the University of York.
Amia Srinivasan is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Oxford, and works on topics in epistemology, metaphilosophy, social and political philosophy, and feminism. She is a contributing editor of the London Review of Books.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (m0001hzq)
Writing Music

Barbara Trapido on Stravinsky

Annie Proulx wrote, in The Shipping News: "You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music". In this series of Radio 3's The Essay authors meditate on a piece of music that has formed the back-drop to their craft. In five intimate radio essays they explore how pieces inspire creativity through mood, narrative or structure, inviting us to step into the music – and the author’s – inner world.

Best-selling novelist Barbara Trapido was so inspired by Stravinsky’s ‘re-composed’ Pulcinella ballet, it sparked not one book, but two. In this short radio essay she explores how in the ballet – as in her writing – nothing is as it seems.

Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Friends and unfinished business

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

Today the focus is on the year 1820, when Schubert was aged 23. Donald Macleod looks into Schubert's friendships, people who rallied round helping him out, including paying his rent whilst he worked on establishing himself as a freelance composer. However, some of his friends cheerfully began calling him "The Tyrant" due to Schubert's tendency to occasionally respond to these kindnesses harshly; they began to see a different side to his nature.

Music featured includes an extract from two unfinished works, his oratorio Lazarus and the Quartet Movement in C minor. Plus we hear one of the best loved of all Schubert's Goethe settings, Erlkönig,which was first performed in this year, and the glorious Song of the Spirits Over the Waters.

Linton Kwesi Johnson

"My generation, which was the rebel generation of black youth, has changed England and in changing England we've changed ourselves" - the words of Linton Kwesi Johnson - the man who invented dub poetry and used it to chronicle some of the key events of black British history, from the celebrated case of George Lindo, wrongly accused of robbery in Bradford in 1978, to the New Cross Fire and Brixton riots a few years later.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09kqfly)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Joyless and friendless

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

In this programme, Donald Macleod takes a look at Schubert's life in the year 1824. Aged 27, Schubert was suffering from symptoms of syphilis, as well as episodes of despair and depression. We hear how his father encouraged him to persevere through his suffering, and Schubert was able to take the sorrow and melancholy he was feeling through into his music.

That music in this programme includes Schubert's Rosamunde String Quartet, some of his "Grand Duo" Sonata for piano four hands, and - proof of his composition speed - his setting of Gebet for vocal quartet, commissioned in the morning and performed in the evening of the very same day.

Sonata for Piano Four Hands, D812 (Grand Duo) (mvt 3. Scherzo and Trio, Allegro vivace)

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0001jzs)
Writing Music

Hannah Beckerman on Brahms

Annie Proulx wrote, in The Shipping News: "You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music". In this series of Radio 3's The Essay authors meditate on a piece of music that has formed the back-drop to their craft. In five intimate radio essays they explore how pieces inspire creativity through mood, narrative or structure, inviting us to step into the music – and the author’s – inner world.

Journalist and author Hannah Beckerman’s relationship with Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto goes back a long way. In this short radio essay she reveals how its fourth movement is a masterclass in storytelling.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (m0001jzv)
Hatis Noit and Kevin Richard Martin in session

Max Reinhardt presents Japanese vocalist Hatis Noit and producer Kevin Richard Martin, aka The Bug, in an exclusive Late Junction collaboration session.

Hatis Noit grew up in the remote surroundings of Shiretoko National Park on the Northern island of Japan. Since moving to London she has been signed to Erased Tapes and her ethereal voice combines influences of Buddhist chants, Bulgarian choirs and the Japanese Gagaku Orchestra.

Over the last 20 years Kevin Richard Martin has moved between jazzcore, industrial hip hop, dub, noise and electronics to create shifting atmospheres with a love for the low end. He’s worked under several monikers but is perhaps most widely known as The Bug and as part of the group King Midas Sound.

Also in the show, Max celebrates the 10th anniversary of Brainfeeder, the independent label from L.A. founded by Flying Lotus, and downtempo instrumental hip hop by Muqata’a from Palestine.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.

Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Penniless and ill

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and feature one of his string quartets every day.

In 1826, Schubert was only two years away from his untimely death at the age of 31. Three of his close friends married in this year, whilst he remained single. In this year Schubert was short of money, suffering manic-depression and syphilis, and smoking and drinking heavily. But we hear, in a passionate outburst, his declaration: "I am Schubert....who has written great things and beautiful things... and who is going to write still more beautiful things..."

This programme, presented by Donald Macleod, features Schubert's monumental final string quartet, plus his setting of Goethe's poignant "Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt" - "None but the Lonely Heart".

Writing Music

Preti Taneja on Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Annie Proulx wrote, in The Shipping News: "You know, one of the tragedies of real life is that there is no background music". In this series of Radio 3's The Essay authors meditate on a piece of music that has formed the back-drop to their craft. In five intimate radio essays they explore how pieces inspire creativity through mood, narrative or structure, inviting us to step into the music – and the author’s – inner world.

Earlier this year, Preti Taneja’s first novel We That Are Young, a re-imagining of King Lear set in contemporary India, won the Desmond Elliot prize. In this emotional radio essay she mediates on the awe-inspiring power of a Sufi devotional song by Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan: Yaad-E-Nabi Ka Gulshan Mekha.
