The BBC has announced that it has a sustainable plan for the future of the BBC Singers, in association with The VOCES8 Foundation.
The threat to reduce the staff of the three English orchestras by 20% has not been lifted, but it is being reconsidered.

SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b00g3rvq)
String Theory

International violinist Daniel Hope examines the mysteries of the violin. No one knows who invented it and it was often seen as the Devil's instrument, certainly one that most resembles the human voice and thought at one time to be able to steal men's souls. Exploring its history, Hope offers up his own thoughts on the violin's musical DNA, what he calls the 'soul and feeling of the violin' that can be traced back to countries as diverse as Mongolia, China, India and Arabia. As well as featuring music from the four corners of the world, the programme looks at the transformation of the bow as a tool of war to an instrument of music. And there's a rare chance for Daniel to get his hands on an early instrument built by a descendant of the Father of the Violin, Andrea Amati, on which he plays excerpts from the earliest published violin sonata, written in 1610.

SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00pj4xg)
Composer Profile - Giovanni Pergolesi

Catherine Bott marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of one of the most important composers of opera buffa (comic opera) - Giovanni Battista Pergolesi. He was born in Jesi, near Ancona, in January 1710, and studied with local musicians before going to Naples at the age of fifteen, where he quickly made a name for himself as an accomplished musician and composer.

Apart from his operas, which caused such a stir in Naples, and, much later, in Paris, Pergolesi also wrote a number of secular instrumental works, including a violin sonata and a violin concerto. A considerable number of instrumental and sacred works once attributed to Pergolesi have since been shown to be falsely attributed. The Concerti Armonici, for instance, are now known to have been composed by Count Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer. Much of Stravinsky's ballet Pulcinella, which ostensibly reworks pieces by Pergolesi, is actually based on spurious works.

It is Pergolesi's 1736 Stabat Mater for male soprano, male alto, and orchestra, which is his best-known sacred work. It was commissioned by the monks of the brotherhood of San Luigi di Palazzo as a replacement for the rather old-fashioned one by Alessandro Scarlatti for identical forces which was performed traditionally each Good Friday in Naples. The work has remained incredibly popular, becoming the most frequently printed work of the 18th century, and being arranged by a number of other composers, including Bach, who used it as the basis for his psalm Tilge, Hochster, meine Sunden, BWV1083.

Tragically, Pergolesi died from tuberculosis, aged just 26, but his legacy remained, and his comic operas became the subject of the now famous Querelle des Bouffons in Paris in the 1750s, which concerned the relative merits of French and Italian opera, sparked off by a performance of Pergolesi's La Serva Padrona.

SUN 00:00 The Early Music Show (b00ktrk0)
Le Balet Comique de la Royne

Lucie Skeaping explores the origins of classical ballet, which can be found in the lavish 'balet comique de la royne', an ambitious and influential stage entertainment that was given in Paris, on 15 October 1581 in the court of Catherine de Medici, to celebrate the marriage of the Duc de Joyeuse and Mlle de Vaudemont.

It was conceived and directed by Catherine's director of court festivals, Balthasar de Beaujoyeux, who sought to bring together all the art forms - including for the first time, dramatic dance - for a huge allegorical spectacle in the spirit of the ancient Greeks. The verse was by the Sieur de la Chesnaye, the scenery by Patin, and the music by the bass singer Lambert de Beaulieu, Jacques Salmon, and others. Catherine was so pleased with the event that she had all its details meticulously recorded, published and circulated, which is how we have come to know so much about it.

In recent years the Swiss-based group Ensemble Elyma and their director Gabriel Garrido have researched and recorded the music of the entertainment, and it is this recording that is featured in the programme. Lucie looks back on the history of the piece, how it was performed, what it looked like and what it meant.

Katie Mitchell

Michael Berkeley talks to the theatre director Katie Mitchell, whose often controversial productions range
from Greek tragedy to Dr Seuss and operas by Mozart and Janacek. Much of the music she has chosen is connected with her work in the theatre, including a Bach aria and a Schubert song and string quartets by Beethoven and Janacek as well as music by Luigi Nono and Alfred Schnittke.

SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00pjhmx)
La Querelle des Bouffons

Lucie Skeaping looks at the background to the historically significant "musical war" - the "Querelle des Bouffons". On 1st August 1752 a performance of Pergolesi's operatic divertimento, "La Serva Padrona" by an Italian troupe of performers in Paris, sparked a great pamphlet war in the capital about the respective merits of Italian and French opera. The debate became known as La Querelle des Bouffons or the "Quarrel of the Comedians". On the surface, the 'pamphlet war' seemed little more than a debate about two contrasting operatic genres: the established "tragedie lyrique" as created in the previous century by Lully and then practised by such as Jean Philippe Rameau,; and the lighter, comic opera, that was then the rage in Italy. In reality the debate had a crucial subtext - a political, philosophical and aesthetic polarisation of the principles of King of France on one hand, and the Queen on the other; of the traditional ideals of society and thinking against the emerging philosophy of the enlightenment; of the desire to create a more immediate and less rhetorical art form.
At the forefront of the debate was none other than the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
Lucie Skeaping unpicks the story and draws on some of the key music featured in the debate. The programme includes operatic excerpts from works by Pergolesi, Lully, Rameau, Mondonville and Dauvergne - and significantly by Jean-Jacques Rousseau himself.

Hary Janos

Charles Hazlewood joins the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra before an audience at Glasgow's City Halls for an exploration of Kodaly's famous Hary Janos, an orchestral suite that in the 1920s established the composer as a musician of international standing. Considered a Hungarian 'nationalist' work, it tells the story of a figure who singlehandedly saves the country from Napoleon's army.

And cimbalom player Heather Corbett joins Charles for a profile of the cimbalom, Hungary's national instrument and a prominent feature in Hary Janos. They consider the development of the instrument from the traditional folk dulcimer, and look at how composers as diverse as Liszt, Stravinsky and Boulez have written for it.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00pjj48)

Rona: Scottish poet and writer Kathleen Jamie joins a research expedition to the tiny uninhabited island of North Rona - 45 miles out into the Atlantic Ocean west of Cape Wrath in Sutherland. She observes and assists with seabird surveys - especially counting the rare and mysterious Leach's Petrel - and archaeologists mapping the island's 8th-century early Celtic Christian buildings. While a family party of killer whales circles the cliffs of Rona - the adults teaching their calves to catch seals - Kathleen thinks about ideas of remoteness and isolation surrounded by thousands of puffins and a herd of grumpy sheep.

SUN 22:15 Words and Music (b00pjj4b)

A sequence of poetry, prose and music examining the idea of borders - those that are voluntary, those we use to define ourselves, those that baffle us and those we simply have to cross. With works ranging from Kafka's parable about the construction of the Great Wall of China to Marilynne Robinson's watery meditations on memory and loss; and from Chopin's dramatic exploration of the frontiers between major and minor keys to Ligeti's experiment to create the musical equivalent of a decomposing body.

With readings by Samuel West and Penelope Wilton.

Dan Cruickshank: Building Memories

Free Thinking 2009

In front of an audience at the Sage Gateshead as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking festival, Rana Mitter hosts a talk given by architectural historian Dan Cruickshank making the case for the restoration, repair and recreation of lost historic buildings, which have been destroyed beyond recognition or simply demolished.

Dan's talk, entitled Building Memories, argues that we underestimate the aesthetic and emotional consequences of this conservation. We need to restore architecture to a prominent place in our understanding of ourselves, our history and our society. Dan has been leading the campaign for the restoration of the Euston Arch, the gateway to the London station which was torn down in the early 1960s. But he also asks: perhaps we have to admit that great buildings live in the imagination more powerfully than they do in the real world?

The globe-trotting architectural historian best known for his dynamic television appearances in series such as Around the World in 80 Treasures and Britain's Best Buildings, Dan holds major public roles with organisations including The National Trust and the Royal Institute of Architects and has been an adviser to Prince Charles.

Episode 2

Donald Macleod explores the little-known music of 17th and 18th-century Spain.

The Italian invention of opera was rapidly taking Europe by storm but Madrid failed to be charmed by its new-fangled recitatives and arias. Donald considers how composers at the Spanish court looked for their own way of bringing music into the theatre.

Prom 61: Sibelius, Duparc, Ravel

Presented by Ian Skelly.

A concert from the 2009 Proms season in which Mariss Jansons conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Sibelius and Ravel, as well as some of Duparc's finest songs, featuring mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena.

Both Sibelius and Duparc stopped composing decades before their deaths. The seven symphonies Sibelius left, however, securely place him among the greatest symphonists of the 20th century. Duparc left little more than a handful of songs, yet each is a gem of textual subtlety and melodic inspiration; lustrous-toned Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kozena sings her own selection.

Ravel's pastoral ballet Daphnis et Chloe - commissioned by Diaghilev in 1909, the year he met Stravinsky - was based on an ancient erotic novel; the Second Suite begins with a sunrise and ends in an orgy.

TUE 21:15 Night Waves (b00pjjwb)
James Earl Jones/Albert Camus Legacy/French Colonialism/Nadifa Mohamed

Rana Mitter talks to actor James Earl Jones about American playwright August Wilson. Jones was in the original 1987 Broadway production of Wilson's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fences, a new version of which has been produced for Radio 3.

Rana also discusses the legacy of Albert Camus 50 years on from his death in a car crash. Andy Martin joins him to talk about Camus' writing, his relevance now and his attitude to the colonial struggles in his native Algeria.

French colonialism is also the subject of a wider discussion, as 2010 marks the 50th anniversary of the great swathe of French de-colonisation in Sub-Saharan Africa when Cameroon, Togoland, Senegal and many others became independent countries. Rana discusses the historical events of the period and their legacy today.

Art historian Gus Casely Hayford joins the conversation to talk about Africa pre-independence. His series of BBC FOUR programmes looking at the deep history of Africa starts with a search for the ancient kingdom of Nubia through artefacts such as bell rocks and great brick mausoleums.

And to mark the beginning of a new year, Rana interviews a series of writers, playwrights and artists who have achieved breakthroughs in 2010 - whether with a first novel, exhibition or play. Here, novelist Nadifa Mohamed about her much-anticipated debut novel Black Mamba Boy.

Episode 3

Donald Macleod explores the little-known music of 17th and 18th-century Spain.

The all-powerful church in 17th century Spain liked its music very traditional indeed: old-fashioned and strictly Latin only. Outside the liturgy, though, composers could be more experimental. Donald reveals how modern styles, popular tunes and dance rhythms found their way into the sacred 'villancico' form.

Prom 62: Haydn, Shostakovich

Presented by Ian Skelly.

In a concert given at the 2009 Proms, Mariss Jansons and his Dutch orchestra perform Haydn's Military Symphony, composed on a visit to London in 1794-5, at a time when England and Holland were allied with Austria against Republican France. According to an early review, the slow movement - graphically portraying 'the hellish roar of war increase to a climax of horrid sublimity' - was greeted with repeated cries of 'Encore! in which the Ladies themselves could not forbear to join'.

Shostakovich's Tenth - one of the composer's most popular symphonies, and a favourite of Jansons and the orchestra - intertwines the composer's personal motto theme with that of a student with whom he was infatuated.

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00pjkyz)
Laura Wade/Will Self/Rock and Roll Films/AK Shevchenko

Following what has been called a great year for new writing in British theatre, Anne McElvoy meets Laura Wade, one of the likely stars of 2010.

After a flurry of studio plays, Wade's work is to be produced on the main stages of two major theatres for the very first time. Her new play, Posh, is likely to draw attention as the UK election approaches. It's about members of an elite, raucous Oxford dining club, not unlike the one whose student membership included some of the current leadership of the Conservative Party. Laura talks about her fascination with the antics of the Bullingdon Club and what the future might hold for playwrights.

As he prepares to deliver the annual WG Sebald lecture, novelist Will Self talks to Anne about the treatment of the Holocaust in the writings of the author of literary hits such as Austerlitz and The Emigrants. A non-Jewish German, WG Sebald's fiction explores the lives of Jews affected by the Holocaust. Self asks whether Sebald's approach is, in some ways, a kind of denial.

Anne dusts off her air guitar to discuss the latest crop of films which attempt to capture the rock and roll spirit: a biopic of Ian Dury and a documentary about three generations of guitar heroes Jimmy Page, of Led Zeppelin, Jack White, of the White Stripes, and The Edge of U2. Music commentators Robert Sandall and Lucy O'Brien turn the volume up to eleven.

And AK Shevchenko talks about her first novel, Bequest - a thriller covering three generations of Russia: the war years; what she calls 'the generation of Crushed Hopes' from the 1960s and her own generation, who saw Soviet communist ideas dissolve.

Spanish Baroque (1600-1750)

Episode 4

Donald Macleod explores the little-known music of 17th and 18th-century Spain.

As a new generation of Spanish composers came of age and the influence of Italian forms strengthened, fierce debates raged about what constituted 'proper' Spanish music. Meanwhile, Spain was exporting a wealth of exotic dance styles to the rest of Europe.

Episode 5

Donald Macleod concludes his exploration of the little-known music of 17th and 18th-century Spain.

As the 18th century progressed, the gradual insinuation of Italian styles into Spanish music became a tidal wave. The new Bourbon monarchy looked towards Europe and Spain and, at last, embraced opera.

Prom 74: Webern, Strauss, Brahms

Presented by Ian Skelly.

In a concert from the Proms 2009 season, the Vienna Philharmonic under its distinguished long-term associate and honorary member Zubin Mehta reinvigorate Strauss's quintessentially quixotic set of 'fantastic variations on a theme of knightly character'.

Brahms's final symphony also ends in a vast set of variations, his gloriously late-Romantic take on a Baroque-style passacaglia, using a theme borrowed from a Bach cantata.

The concert begins with another Passacaglia - Webern's own late-Romantic influenced student work.
