From Cadogan Hall, London. Presented by Suzy Klein.

SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00d0fm0)
Music from the Festival on the Niger 2008

Episode 1

Ten thousand people from all parts of Mali, from neighbouring West African countries, and from Europe, Asia and the Americas, gathered in Segou in central Mali earlier this year for the annual Festival on the Niger. Lucy Duran introduces performances by Abdoullaye Diabate and Yoro Diallo, who are both hugely popular in Mali but little known outside, and she goes in search of the rarely-heard hunters music of the region.

The Festival is literally on the Niger, as the performers play from a barge that floats on this great African river. It was started three years ago to promote culture and tourism in that region, to try and tempt travellers on their way to Timbuktu to stop in Segou for a while. The artist line-up is a mix of internationally known Malian artists such as Afel Bocoum from Niafunke, and artists who are popular in Mali but less well known outside.

Abdoullaye Diabate is a singer who comes from Segou. He sees himself as a modern-day griot, giving social and political messages to people while entertaining them with great songs for dancing. Yoro Diallo comes from Wassulu in the west, and is a leading player of the hunters music of that region.

SAT 16:00 Jazz Line-Up (b00d0fm2)
Lee Konitz

Claire Martin introduces celebrated alto-saxophonist Lee Konitz in concert at the 2008 Glasgow International Jazz Festival, performing alongside pianist Frank Frank Wunsch and bassist Henning Gailing in a programme featuring mainly jazz standards.

With a career that has lasted more than 50 years, Konitz is known for going against the grain, determined to forge his own style of playing and not follow that of the great Charlie Parker. He gained early popularity playing with pianist Lennie Tristano and later as a member of Miles Davis's famous Birth of the Cool nonet. After virtually giving up performing in the 1960s, Konitz re-emerged with a burst of recording and concert activity in the 1970s. He has remained a sought-after headliner and sideman.

Fantasia on a Theme - The Captain's Apprentice

Roy Palmer's series on the folksongs Vaughan Williams collected concludes with The Captain's Apprentice, quoted in Flos Campi, performed in this evening's Prom and which provides the haunting melody in the Norfolk Rhapsody. Roy explains the social as well as musical significance of this song of an apprentice destroyed by a brutal ship's captain.

Vaughan Williams heard the song, uncannily close to the plot of Peter Grimes, from 'Duggie' Carter, a King's Lynn fisherman and, in the very pub where he sat in the corner and noted it down, historian Dr Paul Richards explains the social as well as musical significance of the song. And Roy also unearths recordings from North America and the Norfolk traditional singer Harry Cox.

Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764)

Episode 1

During his lifetime, Rameau was widely regarded as the greatest French composer of the age, yet within a few decades of his death, his music had fallen into neglect. It took a century for the Rameau revival to begin and almost as long again for him to be fully rehabilitated. Donald Macleod considers the composer's first 50 years, which for the most part are shrouded in mystery.

MON 23:15 World on 3 (b00d0qcd)
Lopa Kothari - WOMAD 2008

Lopa Kothari presents a mix of music from around the world, and also introduces a recording of bassist Jah Wobble's new Chinese Dub project, made on the Radio 3 stage at the 2008 WOMAD festival.

Radio 3 continues its coverage of the WOMAD Festival 2008, which was held in Charlton Park near Malmesbury, Wiltshire, at the end of July. This annual festival of World Music brings acts from every part of the globe together, to perform on multiple stages. Some acts also take part in workshops and even cookery sessions.
One of the most eagerly anticipated performances of the weekend was the appearance on Radio 3's own stage of the new project from bass player Jah Wobble. Jah Wobble, born John Wardle, originally rose to prominence as the bass player in Public Image Limited, the band formed by John Lydon on his departure from the Sex Pistols.
After a wilderness period in the 1980s, when he worked for London Underground, Jah Wobble re-emerged as a musical pioneer in the 90s, incorporating many different styles of music from around the world into his distinctive bass-heavy sound.
This latest project, Jah Wobble Chinese Dub, was inspired initially by his family: his wife is Chinese, and is the guzheng (zither) player in the group. The performance brings in Chinese musicians and dancers alongside Jah Wobble stalwarts like drummer Mark Sanders and purveyor of exotic wind instruments Clive Bell.
This programme will contain other recordings from WOMAD 2008.

Episode 3

Eva Hoffman is a Polish Jew who came to Britain in 1992, having spent most of her adult life in the United States. What she found confounded her prejudices of a stodgy, emotionally closed and uncommunicative culture.

But she also found a society in a state of rapid flux, a culture which seemed unsure of the balance to strike between absorbing outside influence and maintaining traditional values. Eva reflects on how we should handle this crisis of confidence.

In conversation with historians Norman Davies and Timothy Garton Ash, veterans of the Polish-Soviet war of 1919-20 and their relatives, Rana brings to life the day-by-day events of August 1920 and asks how the Battle of Warsaw continues to influence Poland and the wider region.

Charlie Haden Quartet West - London Jazz Festival 2007

Jez Nelson presents highlights of Charlie Haden's Quartet West performing at the 2007 London Jazz Festival. The band played to a sell-out opening-night crowd at the Southbank's Queen Elizabeth Hall as they celebrated the 20th anniversary of the group's birth. Saxophonist Ernie Watts, pianist Alan Broadbent and drummer Rodney Green completed the outfit. There is also an opportunity to hear Haden in conversation after his performance.

Haden rose to prominence as a regular bassist with Ornette Coleman, playing on the saxophonist's landmark 1959 album The Shape Of Jazz To Come. He went on to explore free jazz and politically-charged improvisation as leader of the Liberation Music Orchestra in the 1970s. During an illustrious career he has played with Keith Jarrett, Paul Motian, Dewey Redman and later, Pat Metheny.
