SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00qprhy)
World Routes in Istanbul

Aynur, Erkan Ogur, Kirike and Rembetiko

Istanbul is a European Capital of Culture for 2010 and Moshe Morad continues his search for traditional music in this melting-pot of peoples and cultures. Including a session recorded at Istanbul's most iconic music venue, Babylon, with one of Turkey's most important Kurdish voices, Aynur. Plus a session with the virtuosic multi-instrumentalist Erkan Ogur, and a visit to the Aegean city of Izmir, the birth-place of Rembetiko.
Moshe Morad explores Istanbul’s rich musical mix and records sessions with many of Turkey's top musicians - from the country's most famous Kurdish voice (Aynur), and the sublime guitar playing of Erkan Ogur, to the wonderful sound of oud and kamanche with Yurdal Tokcan and Derya Turkan. Moshe learns about some of Turkey's best-loved traditional instruments such as the kamanche and the saz, hears the stories behind the music, and finds out from the people who live there what Istanbul means to them. Amongst them, he meets record executive Hasan Saltik, who set-up and runs the Kalan label, and who was sent to jail on more than one occasion for his love of minority musics. Moshe also travels the short distance to the Aegean coast where he records one type of music that has stayed in its original home rather than emigrate to Istanbul: Rembetiko.

Presented by Moshe Morad
Produced by James Parkin

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b00qprjz)
Live from the Met

Strauss' Ariadne Auf Naxos

Live from the Metropolitan Opera in New York. Greek tragedy collides with the mischief-making of the commedia dell'arte in Richard Strauss's opera-within-an-opera Ariadne auf Naxos, conceived in collaboration with the librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal. The fabulous Swedish soprano Nina Stemme takes the title role, with Kathleen Kim as the ever-pragmatic Zerbinetta, and Sarah Connolly as the naive young Composer. Strauss's music combines pathos and wit in this inventive piece.

At the house of a Viennese nobleman, a new opera 'Ariadne auf Naxos' is to be performed, followed by an Italian comedy, but it is announced that both plays will have to be performed simultaneously due to time restrictions.

In the opera itself, Ariadne has been abandoned on the island of Naxos by Theseus. She longs for death, but Zerbinetta tries to persuade her to replace her love for Theseus with another, as it is only human to change an old love for a new one.

Presented by Margaret Juntwait with guest commentator Ira Siff. Live backstage interviews during the interval.

Life on the Edges

By Nicola Wilson

Deano's never met his grandmother, Ellen. But his mother's committed suicide and he's been placed in her care. Alone together they each occupy their own imaginary worlds. Ellen sees things - a bear in a white anorak, Victorian chimney sweeps, the disembodied head of Ian Beale. Deano, used to spending hours on his computer, is missing the imaginary world he created on Second Life. Then his avatar turns up in his new bedroom and their adventures begin again. When Deano and Ellen's imaginary worlds collide, a dark and tragic tale unfolds.

SUNDAY 21 FEBRUARY 2010

SUN 00:00 The Early Music Show (b00nhm36)
The Elizabethan Stage Jig

Lucie Skeaping explores the often forgotten world of the Elizabethan stage jig - a popular form of bawdy musical comedy from the 16th and 17th century.

The crowds who flocked to the London playhouses in the late 16th and early 17th century expected to be amused and amazed. Mostly, they got their money's worth because not only could they see a drama, a comedy or some great tragedy, but if they stayed on after the play had ended, they would also be treated to a short farce - a rude, lewd and outrageous musical entertainment known as a jig.

SUN 17:00 Discovering Music (b00qps03)
Beethoven: Symphony No 3 (Eroica)

Stephen Johnson presents a programme exploring Beethoven's Third Symphony in E flat major, the Eroica. It is well known that Beethoven intended to dedicate the symphony to Napoleon, but when Napoleon had himself crowned Emperor in 1804, Beethoven angrily scratched out this dedication and the symphony was then titled the 'Heroic' symphony. Stephen Johnson considers this theme of 'heroism' in the work, illustrated with examples and a complete performance of the symphony by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Christophe Mangou.


SUN 18:30 Choir and Organ (b00qps05)
WH Auden's rich contribution to classical music is justly famous. Yet - Britten's "Hymn to St Cecilia" aside - the rich array of choral music inspired by his work is relatively little-known. Tonight, Aled Jones introduces settings of Auden, including Britten's famous tribute to music's patron saint, and recent American works by Carson Cooman and Richard Wilson. Plus, we'll hear a brilliant, irreverent lumberjack song - written some thirty years before Python.

Later this week, BBC Radio 3's Choral Evensong marks the 100th birthday of the great British choirmaster Stanley Vann. In advance of this special service, Aled introduces part of one of Vann's most famous recordings, Stainer's "The Crucifixion", and an exclusive extract from a new disc of Vann's own compositions.

Finally, Aled reveals the results of the BBC's "Choral Ambition" scheme - an initiative helping amateur choirs nationwide to fund new projects and commission new works.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00qps1j)
From Gameboy to Armageddon

War games are as old as military history but something has begun to change as war and play converge to create what some call the 'military entertainment complex'. Ken Hollings pushes the button on this latest phenomenon.

Men have always played at and with soldiers. Gaming has been an essential part of warfare and by the 19th Century it had been developed into the sophisticated "Kriegspiel", derived from the still influential theories of Von Clausewitz and played at military colleges in both Europe and America. These war games then became real games for table-top strategists by the early 20th Century. A remarkable synergy developed between colleges of war and devisers of such games, particularly in America. And in the think tanks of the RAND Corp gaming theory was used intensively to plot the future of war and nuclear destruction.

But from the late 1970s computer strategy games started to form a powerful loop between gamers and warriors. With the creation of the SIMNET, the military began to develop hugely powerful simulators and now convergence is taking place between military and the entertainment industry. Some say we are living in what Stanford Professor Tim Lenoir has called 'the military entertainment complex', with military functions increasingly taking place online, using simulation for training and in the treatment of soldiers suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. But is this new realm of war truly a revolution - the shape of things to come - or just more virtual bangs for real bucks?


SUN 22:15 Words and Music (b00j4j1l)
Insects

They creep upon the earth, and buzz and flit above us in the air, but we rarely think of them. This week's Words and Music is devoted to the tiny invertebrate world of insects, and the beauty and variation to be found within.

The grasshopper singing on a summer is celebrated by Josquin's frotolla El Grillo, and the slow patient progress of a snail reflected by Thom Gunn's poem Considering The Snail. We certainly notice insects that bother us, provoking ire in D H Lawrence's The Mosquito, and Robert Burns's To A Louse, but the invertebrate kingdom brings us great joy as well, through the beauty of butterflies and the industry of bees. Ewan Bailey and Rachel Atkins read poetry to lead us through this minute, mysterious world. (Rpt).


SUN 23:30 Jazz Line-Up (b00qps1n)
Jerry Bergonzi

Jazz Line-Up, presented by Claire Martin, features international Saxophonist, educator, composer and arranger Jerry Bergonzi, who has a CV that boasts just about every jazz icon there is. Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Bergonzi became interested in music early on. He started playing clarinet when he was eight years old listening to Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Lester Young. His uncle, who was a jazz musician and lived upstairs, used to write out solos for him to play. At twelve years old he got his first saxophone, an old Conn alto, and a year later when a friend introduced him to Miles, Coltrane, and Sonny Rollins, there was no turning back.

On this set, at the Jazz Bar in Edinburgh, he is with with Boston bassist Dave Santoro, and Paris-based, Italian drummer Andrea Michelutti. However Bergonzi during this set doubles on piano during the drum breaks. Jerry has written countless books on sax technique and improvisation, and has a huge discography. The late, great Michael Brecker was once asked 'What does it feel like to be the world's greatest sax player?', to which he replied 'I don't know, you'll have to ask Jerry Bergonzi!' Brecker was a long-term student of 'The Gonz'.

Leos Janacek (1854-1928)

Episode 1

Forget pipe and slippers. In 1924, Leos Janacek (1854-1928) careened into his eighth and final decade with an almost rock star-like abandon: sleepwalking through his own personal erotic fantasy as his personal life crashed catastrophically around him. His was in love: infatuated to the point of madness with a woman nearly four decades younger, the very much married Mrs Kamila Stösslová.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00qps6m)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Musical Firsts

Episode 1

Penny Gore presents a week of programmes reflecting on musical firsts featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Penny opens with a concert given last month at BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff, home of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the first of a season looking back on past premieres and BBC commissions. Principal Guest conductor Jac van Steen conducts two orchestral masterpieces from twentieth century Russia, and David Matthews joins Penny live in the studio to introduce his cello concerto, "Concerto in Azzurro". It was premiered by this orchestra in 2002, and here receives its first performance in Wales, with the exciting young soloist Guy Johnston, himself a past BBC Young Musician of the Year.

David also talks to Penny about his 6th symphony, heard here for the first time in a brand new recording. The symphony was premiered at the Proms in 2007 to great critical acclaim, and takes its theme from Vaughan Williams hymn tune "Down Ampney" - often sung to the words "Come down, O love divine". The same hymn tune also underpins a new work from Australian composer Paul Stanhope, which received its UK premiere with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at the Vale of Glamorgan Festival in 2009. These two works from different sides of the world are joined together by a performance of Vaughan Williams own "Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis", given in the building for which it was written, Gloucester Cathedral.

MON 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00qpsbf)
BBC SO/Belohlavek

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Central Europe's essential spirit courses through the veins of this evening's concert, with two great Czech composers, Janacek and Martinu, framing a Czech-born composer, Korngold, who ended up in Hollywood. The orchestral Suite from Janacek's opera Katya Kabanova , arranged by another Czech composer Jaroslav Smolka, here receives its world premiere performance. Old Vienna and the music of 1930s Hollywood combine in tuneful pomp in Korngold's Violin Concerto. Tonight's soloist is one of the BBC SO's two Leaders, Andrew Haveron. And the concert ends with the irresistible lyricism of Martinů's Fourth Symphony (also written in the USA, in 1945).
(This is the first of three concerts this week featuring Czech composers. There's more Janacek on Wednesday, and Dvorak on Thursday).

Recorded last week at the Barbican Hall, London.

[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


MON 23:00 The Essay (b00j8f1c)
Work-Life Balance

Episode 1

We talk now of a 'work/life balance', as though 'work' is something quite separate from 'life' and the meaning of both is self-evident. How have we arrived at such a way of thinking? It's hard to find answers because, while there is endless newspaper coverage of the issue, no history of the work/life balance exists. Especially for The Essay, Professor Hugh Cunningham explores the place that work has played in British lives from proto-industrialism in the C18th to post-industrialism in the C21st through five vivid chronological snapshots. Each tells the story of a particular period while shedding new light on a contemporary juggling act that causes great stress to many if not most people in our society

Throughout the series Hugh Cunningham returns to two themes: the impact of contemporary consumerism on our working lives and the difference between the work/leisure balance of the past - when the work-force was mainly male- and the so-called work/life balance of today - with women most taking the strain.

In Episode One, Hugh Cunningham looks at the transition from the so-called "leisure preference" of the 18th century, when many people worked only long enough to provide themselves with their basic needs and otherwise opted for leisure, to the the long hours we associate with everyday life during the Industrial Revolution.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00qyk78)
Leos Janacek (1854-1928)

Episode 2

In today's episode, Donald Macleod explores music of the open air - and the story of a woman six centuries old...

Janacek's "Danube" symphony was left unfinished at his death - all that remains of a planned trip down the river with his beloved Kamila that never came to fruition. Meanwhile, the composer's Concertino for piano stands as one of his most charming works - full of filigree flourishes and charming melodies inspired by a spring spent in the idyllic countryside of Eastern Czechoslovakia.

We end with the climactic scene of the composer's penultimate opera - the tragic case of Emila Marty, doomed to live forever, in the legal drama "The Makropoulos Affair".


TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00qpskt)

The name changed to Belfast Music Society in 1983 and since then it has continued to deliver quality performances. Its programme of concerts has been one of the mainstays of Belfast's musical and cultural life, providing access to an extensive repertoire of quality chamber music.

TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00qtn30)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Musical Firsts

Episode 2

Penny Gore presents a week of programmes reflecting on musical firsts featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

A quartet of works all influenced by the sea opens today's programme. "Sneaker Wave" was written for the 2004 Proms by Joby Talbot, who is also a distinguished writer of film and TV scores, as well as arranging for pop musicians from Ute Lemper to Tom Jones. Joby brings the full force of the orchestra crashing down to portray this massive wall of water, including, in this performance, the mighty Albert Hall organ.

Welsh composer Grace Williams made her home on the coast, just outside Cardiff, overlooking the Bristol Channel. Her evocative Sea Sketches were premiered in 1947 at the BBC studios in Cardiff, and have become a familiar favourite of Welsh orchestral music ever since.

Michael Berkeley first heard the haunting sound of whales singing as they "bubble net" as part of a Radio 4 programme "World on the Move". This unique song moved him to incorporate a recording in his recent commission for BBC NOW - "Gabriel's Lament". Today Penny also hears from the producer, Joe Stevens, about this remarkable underwater vocal talent.

Julian Philips wrote his seascape for the orchestra a decade ago, and it was soon championed by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Afternoon on 3 closes with a concert featuring the first broadcast of "Taliesin", the final work composed by Alun Hoddinott, who for over half a century was at the heart of Welsh musical life. Penny is joined by Swansea Festival director Huw Tregelles Williams, to hear about the new piece, the composer and this remarkable concert from the 2009 festival, featuring the orchestra's Associate Guest Conductor Francois-Xavier Roth. The French conductor is joined by his organist father Daniel, in the final work today, the ever-popular Organ Symphony by Saint-Saens.

TUE 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00qpsnq)
Bournemouth SO/Alsop

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The Variations on an Original Theme, commonly known as "The Enigma Variations", is a brilliantly varied portrait gallery of Elgar's friends, family and neighbours. They contain some of the most charming and deeply felt music Elgar ever penned, though the theme itself remains an enigma.
Barber's gloriously lyrical violin concerto is frequently cited as a sort of turning point in Barber's output, a work whose first two movements reflect the ingratiating melodic-romantic style of his earlier compositions, and whose finale represents the first intimations of a new and tightened approach - leaner and somewhat more austere.
From the beginning, Brahms' Third Symphony has proven to be his most evocative. With numerous acknowledgments to Wagner and allusions to the same Rhine-based mythology, it provides other fascinations as well, including a "Minuet" that is more funereal than dance-like, and a quietly mysterious theme heard all too briefly in the second movement, which returns in the finale to assumes unexpectedly heroic dimensions.

Recorded last week at the Lighthouse in Poole.

TUE 21:15 Night Waves (b00qpsnx)
Rose Tremain/Vanity/Ibsen's Ghosts/The Day the Immigrants Left

Matthew Sweet will be talking to the novelist Rose Tremain about her new novel Trespass, in which an isolated French country pile plays host to a tug of war over land, property and money between siblings, who watch their family home crumble to reveal an abusive regime.

And, marking London Fashion Week, John Mullan and Peter York join Matthew to look at the idea of vanity, tracing what writers and thinkers down the centuries from Thackeray and Bunyan to Tom Wolfe have had to say on the subject.

Plus a first night review of the new production of Ibsen's Ghosts adapted by the Irish playwright Frank McGuinness. One English critic on its opening in 1891 described it as 'an open drain, a dirty deed done in public'. Susannah Clapp will be giving a 21st century verdict on the play which stars Lesley Sharp and Iain Glen who is making his directorial debut.

And Evan Davis will be discussing his new BBC1 documentary, 'The Day the Immigrants Left', which looks at the impact of immigration on the Cambridgeshire town of Wisbech and explores what happens when some of the employees are temporarily removed from their jobs and the work is given to the local unemployed.

[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


TUE 23:00 The Essay (b00j8wlg)
Work-Life Balance

Episode 2

We talk now of a 'work/life balance', as though 'work' is something quite separate from 'life' and the meaning of both is self-evident. How have we arrived at such a way of thinking? It's hard to find answers because, while there is endless newspaper coverage of the issue, no history of the work/life balance exists. Especially for The Essay, Professor Hugh Cunningham explores the place that work has played in British lives from proto-industrialism in the C18th to post-industrialism in the C21st through five vivid chronological snapshots. Each tells the story of a particular period while shedding new light on a contemporary juggling act that causes great stress to many if not most people in our society

Throughout the series Hugh Cunningham returns to two themes: the impact of contemporary consumerism on our working lives and the difference between the work/leisure balance of the past - when the work-force was mainly male- and the so-called work/life balance of today - with women most taking the strain.

In Episode Two, Hugh Cunningham looks at the battle - long fought but ultimately won - for leisure during the industrial revolution.

He also explores Janacek's trip to the UK in 1926, and dips into two of the composer's least-heard (and most peculiar) pieces; first, there's a handful of Nursery Rhymes for instrumental ensemble - full of surreal images of vegetables getting married and grandmothers in bushes - with the programme ending with the unique Capriccio for piano left hand, brass and flute.

Penny Gore presents a week of programmes reflecting on musical firsts featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Today Elin Manahan Thomas presents a live Afternoon on 3 concert from BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff. The orchestra is joined by conductor Martyn Brabbins to travel three contrasting musical landscapes.

Anthony Powers talks with Elin, looking back on his 1993 commission for the orchestra. They're joined by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Mahan Esfahani for Poulenc's "countryside" concerto for harpsichord, inspired by the eighteenth century entertainment of the French court at Versailles.

Copland's 1940s ballet score remains one of the quintessential American works of the twentieth century, with its perfect evocation of the pioneer spirit and the wide open spaces of the great outdoors.

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00qtmz2)
London Philharmonic/Jurowski

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

In tonight's concert, Russian conductor Vladimir Jurowski conducts an all-Czech programme, though with some Russian connections: Janacek's Taras Bulba is a rhapsodic evocation of episodes from Gogol's novel about the adventurous life of a Cossack.
Josef Suk's massive Asrael Symphony has a tragic backstory. Suk was a protégé of Dvorak, and when the celebrated older composer died in 1904 Suk, was shaken to the core. His immediate response was creative: he wrote three movements of a symphony, producing long, Dvorákian, lyrical themes intensified by his own yearning chromatic harmonies. But a year later, Asrael, the 'Angel of Death' visited Suk once more: it took his wife, Otylka. Suk was distraught. But he pushed on. He fashioned two final movements as a memorial to her; after a furious scherzo the yearning had turned to resolution as Suk found comfort in the transcendental and uplifting renewal of the natural world.

Recorded last week at the Royal Festival Hall, London.

Year of Science 2010

Frances Balkwill

As part of Night Waves Science and Society series Philip Dodd talks to Professor of Cancer Biology, Frances Balkwill, about her work to understand a disease that affects one third of Britons. Professor Balkwill runs a research team of 25 scientists, sits on parliament's cancer committee, directs public centres of the understanding of cells and is a resident researcher at Queen Mary, University of London. But as someone who operates at the front line of the fight against cancer are the military metaphors we habitually use appropriate when one is trying to save the body from its own cells. Indeed, the public understanding of disease and of science more generally is high on her list of priorities. She has published a number of books about science for children and was given the Royal Society Michael Faraday prize for her 'outstanding work in communicating the concepts, facts and fascination of science'. Her work is not confined to this country but includes 'You, Me and HIV, a book for young people in Sub-Saharan Africa, were she also works to help mitigate the effects of HIV aids.
Philip Dodd talks to Prof Balkwill about the politics of cancer, the nature of scientific co-operation, the idea of disease and how you save the body from its own cells.

WED 23:00 The Essay (b00j8wr3)
Work-Life Balance

Episode 3

We talk now of a 'work/life balance', as though 'work' is something quite separate from 'life' and the meaning of both is self-evident. How have we arrived at such a way of thinking? It's hard to find answers because, while there is endless newspaper coverage of the issue, no history of the work/life balance exists. Especially for The Essay, Professor Hugh Cunningham explores the place that work has played in British lives from proto-industrialism in the C18th to post-industrialism in the C21st through five vivid chronological snapshots. Each tells the story of a particular period while shedding new light on a contemporary juggling act that causes great stress to many if not most people in our society

Throughout the series Hugh Cunningham returns to two themes: the impact of contemporary consumerism on our working lives and the difference between the work/leisure balance of the past - when the work-force was mainly male - and the so-called work/life balance of today - with women most taking the strain.

In Episode Three, Hugh Cunningham tells the story of how the burgeoning Leisure Class spent their time in Victorian Britain, while the Middle Class so-called "brain workers" began to experience a level of stress in their lives with which many of us can identify today

Leos Janacek (1854-1928)

Episode 4

Had the weather had been good in the Czech Republic, circa July 1926, Janacek might never have written one of the most extraordinary choral works of the 20th century. Holed up in the spa town of Luhacovice with nothing to do, the composer set his mind to a setting of the Mass - but this was to be no ordinary one...

Donald Macleod introduces a performance of Janacek's remarkable "Glagolitic Mass", uniquely written to words in the medieval language of Old Church Slavonic, and presents a work once thought incomplete at the composer's death: his Violin Concerto, subtitled "Wanderings Of A Little Soul".

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00qtn49)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Musical Firsts

Episode 4

Penny Gore presents a week of programmes reflecting on musical firsts featuring the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Today Penny introduces a brand new recording of Arthur Sullivan's 'Ivanhoe' - arguably the most important British opera from the nineteenth century. Based on the novel by Sir Walter Scott, dedicated to Queen Victoria - and written at her suggestion - Ivanhoe opened at the Royal English Opera House in January 1891 and ran for 155 consecutive performances. Since when its popularity has been somewhat less extravagant. When the performing materials were destroyed by fire in 1964, its fate seemed sealed.

Thanks largely to the indefatigable effort and boundless energy of the late Richard Hickox, a new recording has now been made of this legendary opera, a co-production between BBC Radio 3 and Chandos Records. With a young and starry cast of British opera talent, this tale of knights in shining armour, forbidden love and medieval merrymaking can finally be heard once again.

Arthur Sullivan: Ivanhoe [rev. 1895]
Toby Spence - Wilfred, Knight of Ivanhoe; Son of Cedric the Saxon (tenor)
Janice Watson - The Lady Rowena; Ward of Cedric (soprano)
Geraldine McGreevy - Rebecca; Daughter of Isaac of York (soprano)
Peter Rose - Cedric the Saxon; Thane of Rotherwood (bass)
Neal Davies - Richard Coeur-de-Lion; King of England disguised as the Black Knight (baritone)

Free Thinking 2009

Sarah Hall/Hugh Pym/Speed Dating with a Thinker

A programme of highlights from Radio 3's Free Thinking festival of ideas.

The damaging flooding of Cumbrian towns and landscapes has been a repeated crisis in recent years. It's a topic that pre-occupies the Cumbrian writer Sarah Hall, who is being tipped as one of the most interesting up and coming novelists of her generation. She was long-listed for the Man Booker Prize last year for her latest novel about the creative process and the human condition, How to Paint a Dead Man. Her previous books The Electric Michelangelo - about a tattoo artist - and The Carhullan Army - about a flooded post-apocalyptic Britain - have both been multi prize-winning successes and gained her international critical acclaim as one of British fiction's most vibrant new voices.

As part of Radio 3's Free Thinking festival of ideas at the Sage Gateshead, she talks to Ian McMillan about the sources of her work, including the native Cumbrian landscape where her work is often set, and her interest in the visual arts - from painting to tattoos. And she meets members of New Writing North's network of book clubs in a wide ranging and lively conversation about her novels.

We also hear from the BBC's Chief Economics Correspondent Hugh Pym, who looks at the story of the credit crunch and tried to understand what happened in the past and to examine the possibilities for the future.

And we also hear from Free Thinking's ever popular speed-dating with a thinker, where thinkers vie with each other to offer the Free Thinking audience the most alluring ideas.

After more than a decade of lusting after Kamila Stosslova, Janacek was finally ready to leave his long-suffering wife. But there was to be no Indian summer of happiness for the 74-year old composer...

Donald Macleod presents the music of Janacek's last 12 months, including the String Quartet "Intimate Letters" - a musical evocation of the hundreds of letters the love-struck composer sent his muse over the course of his infatuation. He also presents music from Janacek's last - and bleakest - opera, "From The House Of The Dead".

Penny introduces a recent concert recorded at Bangor University last November, as part of the 125th anniversary celebrations. It opens with the most recent premiere given by the orchestra, from Resident Composer Guto Puw, 'Break the Stone' - a reference both to a Welsh folksong and the quarrying heritage of North Wales.

The final item in the week comes from one of the most memorable concerts of the orchestra's 2008-9 season at St. David's Hall in Cardiff, Mahler's mighty 7th Symphony, his Song of the Night.

Music will be provided by the orchestra, its Associate Guest Conductor Stefan Solyom and Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti. Nicola will be playing a piece 'From Ayrshire' by composer James MacMillan and joining the orchestra in the Scherzo from Tchaikovsky's 'Souvenir d'un lieu cher'.

The show opens in true Scottish fashion with Alexander Mackenzie's Overture 'The Cricket on the Hearth', and there's 'From the Scottish Highlands' by Cecil Coles - the young Scottish composer killed by German sniper fire on the Western Front while on active service during World War I. There'll be well known classics too, such as Mozart's F major Divertimento for strings K.138, Sibelius's Karelia Suite and Leonard Bernstein's 'Symphonic Dances from West Side Story'.

If you would like to be in the audience for this event, free tickets are available (limited to 4 tickets per application) from the City Halls box office on 0141 353 8000 or from www.glasgowconcerthalls.com.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Tonight's concert was recorded last week in Minneapolis, and this leading American orchestra is joined by pianist Garrick Ohlsson, the first American to win Poland's International Chopin Competition. Here Ohlsson plays Chopin's meltingly beautiful Piano Concerto No.2 and reveals that his Chopin interpretations have only deepened in the years since that early triumph. And Music Director Osmo Vänskä, acclaimed for his interpretations of Beethoven, Sibelius and many other composers, gives his first Minnesota performance of Mozart's late masterpiece, his Symphony No. 40, a touchstone of Western art.

FRI 21:15 The Verb (b00qtnbx)
Joshua Ferris/Ginger and Black/JD Salinger Early Work/Niven Govinden

Joshua Ferris

The acclaimed American novelist gives Verb listeners his guide to books about The Soul. Joshua's new book The Unnamed tackles the philosophical and scientific conundrum of the soul through the character of Tim Farnsworth, a successful lawyer who loves his family, but is forced by a mystery disease to walk at unpredictable moments - out of a meeting, a court case, a family dinner, the life he knows. Whilst researching the novel, Joshua explored literary, philosophical and scientific writing about the soul - tune in to hear his recommendations.

Ginger and Black

The comedy duo bring their deadpan comic songs to The Verb studio, and invite their fellow guests to join them in a little audience participation.

JD Salinger

Kevin Jackson reveals the history of a unique 'bootleg' edition of JD Salinger's early and uncollected work.

Niven Govinden

The novelist presents a brand new - and chilling - short story, We Are Always At Your Service, about a spa town with a dark secret. Read in studio by Ewan Bailey.


FRI 22:00 Composer of the Week (b00qyk85)
[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


FRI 23:00 The Essay (b00j8xd0)
Work-Life Balance

Episode 5

We talk now of a 'work/life balance', as though 'work' is something quite separate from 'life' and the meaning of both is self-evident. How have we arrived at such a way of thinking? It's hard to find answers because, while there is endless newspaper coverage of the issue, no history of the work/life balance exists. Especially for The Essay, Professor Hugh Cunningham explores the place that work has played in British lives from proto-industrialism in the C18th to post-industrialism in the C21st through five vivid chronological snapshots. Each tells the story of a particular period while shedding new light on a contemporary juggling act that causes great stress to many, if not most, people in our society.

Throughout the series Hugh Cunningham returns to two themes: the impact of contemporary consumerism on our working lives and the difference between the work/leisure balance of the past - when the work-force was mainly male- and the so-called work/life balance of today - with women most taking the strain.

In Episode five, Hugh Cunningham argues that men have largely won their historic battle for a balance between work and leisure but that the oddly-named balance between work and life has still to be won by most women.

FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00qtnc3)
Mary Ann Kennedy

Mary Ann Kennedy introduces a special programme from Ardgour in Scotland's Western Highlands, with sessions from two generations of Scottish musicians: Sandy Wright, a veteran singer who is now being acclaimed as the country's 'finest undiscovered songwriter', and The Bevvy Sisters, fronted by three Edinburgh singers who share a passion for Americana, vintage rarities and original songwriting.

Radio 3 launches a week-long focus on Scotland today, and this World on 3 comes from Mary Ann's own studio at home on the shores of Loch Linnhe.

This month sees the release of a major double album featuring the songs of Sandy Wright - one CD is his solo debut with his band The Toxic Cowboys, and the second is a tribute by major artists of the younger generation, with Sandy's songs recorded by Eddi Reader, Chris Wood, Kris Drever, Karine Polwart and others. In his 60th year, after a colourful career which included years in the army and working as a clown, maybe it is time for Sandy to get the recognition many think he deserves.

Heather Macleod, Kaela Rowan and Lindsey Black are all established singers in their own right, coming together occasionally as The Bevvy Sisters, singing tight, three-part harmony songs from the days of the Andrews Sisters, as well as contemporary self-penned songs. Their debut album was released at the end of January.
