SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00rjxwc)
Bach's St Mark Passion

Catherine Bott presents a programme exploring JS Bach's "phantom" setting of the St Mark Passion. According to the catalogue of works in his obituary, Bach composed five Passions, but only two works remain intact, the justly celebrated settings of the Passions by St Matthew and St John. The first performance of the St Mark Passion was probably given on Good Friday - March 23rd - in 1731, but a score of the music has not survived. The text is all that remains, written by the poet Christian Friedrich Henrici or "Picander", with whom Bach worked on the St Matthew Passion. There is however a lot of evidence to suggest that Bach's music from the passion exists in other forms, notably in some of Bach's Cantatas, and so reconstructions of the Passion have been made possible. Catherine Bott recalls the background to Bach's lost work, and plays music from 3 different reconstructions; by Ton Koopman, Simon Heighes, and from a new recording by Amacord and the Kölner Akademie, based on some 1964 detective work by Diethard Hellmann.

SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00rd7kw)
Zehetmair Quartet

The Zehetmair Quartet at Wigmore Hall in a concert which includes a rarely heard piece by Bruckner, his String Quartet in C minor and Schumann's Quartet in A minor op 41 no 1.

The quartet was founded by the charismatic violinist Thomas Zehetmair and unusually for a chamber ensemble, they play their whole repertoire from memory. The programme features two works in which the composers were experimenting with the string quartet. Bruckner wrote his C minor quartet as a student, but it was only rediscovered some decades after his death. The composer's love of Bach and Schubert can be traced in the writing. And there's a hint of Bach in the Schumann Quartet as well, which shows the fruits of Schumann's recent study of the art of counterpoint in the opening movement.

Through their bleak existence, hope is given to the inmates by the defiance of an injured eagle, captive with them.

The cast includes Willard White, Kurt Streit and Peter Mattei and is conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen.

SAT 18:50 Opera on 3 (b00rm6ns)
Duke Bluebeard's Castle

Béla Bartók only wrote one opera, Duke Bluebeard's Castle in a career that concentrated mainly on music for orchestra, piano and string quartet. A one-act opera, its libretto is by the poet Béla Balázs who actually wrote it for either Bartók or fellow composer Kodály to set to music, as he was much influenced by the peasant ballads and lyrics they were both collecting at the time and Bartók's setting of the text reminds us constantly that we are in the world of the folk ballad. The story centres entirely on only two characters, Duke Bluebeard and his new, and latest wife Judith. It is a story of the failure of trust. For Judith, love is not enough. She must know everything about her husband's past. With each of the seven doors she opens into his past, she distances herself from his present and eventually becomes confined with him in the dungeon his castle has become.

Duke Bluebeard: Gábor Bretz (baritone)
Judith: Elena Zhidkova (soprano)
Narrator: Ors Kisfaludy
Adam Fischer (Conductor)

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b00rjy76)
Gareth Malone

Michael Berkeley's guest this week is Gareth Malone, the young choirmaster whose boundless enthusiasm for getting people to sing has turned him into a major TV star. He describes himself as an 'animateur, presenter and populariser of choral singing', and until December 2009 he worked for the London Symphony Orchestra, running their youth choir and community choir. He is best known, however, for his BBC2 series 'The Choir', in which he is parachuted into a community or school where singing is not a major activity, and turns a disparate group of initially reluctant young people into an accomplished choir. 'The Choir', which has run for three series between 2007-9, has won a BAFTA and a Broadcast award. In 2010, Gareth worked on two further TV series, 'Gareth Goes to Glyndebourne', in which he turned a group of secondary school students from a deprived area into a chorus performing at the famous Sussex summer opera festival, and his first non-musical venture, 'Extraordinary School for Boys', which has just been broadcast on BBC2 .

His own 'Private Passions', not surprisingly, focus firmly on the voice, from the majestic opening of Vaughan Williams' 'A Sea Symphony' to Leonard Bernstein's 'Chichester Psalms'. In between there's a motet by Byrd, operatic arias from Mozart's 'La clemenza di Tito' and Stravinsky's 'The Rake's Progress', and songs by Schumann and Finzi. The only non-vocal piece is the second movement of Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony, played by the LSO under Mstislav Rostropovich.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00rjy7q)
London Handel Festival

Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of the London Handel Festival, founded over thirty years ago to foreground the music of the composer and his contemporaries in his adopted city.
Founded by Denys Darlow in 1978 the London Handel Festival has contributed to a Handel revival in the UK, specialising in the performance of lesser-known works of the period. In 1981 the London Handel Orchestra and London Handel Singers made their debut at the Festival. Laurence Cummings took over as Musical Director from Denys Darlow in 2002.
In this programme Lucie talks to several of key protogonists at the festival, including Laurence Cummings and Adrian Butterworth, soprano Dame Emma Kirkby, and Festival Director Catherine Hodgson. The music for the programme was recorded at this year's festival and includes vocal and instrumental music by Handel and Thomas Arne.

SUN 17:00 Discovering Music (b00rjy7z)
Chopin Preludes

Stephen Johnson with pianists Llyr Williams and Benjamin Frith, examine the history and musical ideas behind Chopin's cycle of Preludes.

Chopin composed his celebrated set of Preludes Opus 28, while staying in Majorca with his lover, the novelist George Sand. One of his inspirations for the set was the keyboard music of JS Bach, especially Bach's celebrated cycle of Preludes and Fugues - the "48".

In this programme Stephen Johnson examines the ideas behind Chopin's Preludes. Unlike Bach's prices, these are not a prelude to anything in particular, so what did Chopin mean by the title? Did the composer intend the cycle for performance or are they didactic pieces, intended to explore different aspects of pianisim? Should the cycle be regarded as one whole or treated as an anthology? Stephen is assisted in his exploration by the pianist Lyr Williams, who also performs the Preludes. The programme was recorded before an audience at the Turner Sims Concert Hall in Southampton.

In addition to the Opus 28 Preludes, Stephen Johnson also examines the three other pieces for piano which Chopin called Prelude. With the pianist Benjamin Frith, he takes apart the Prelude in C sharp minor Op45. A work that is sometimes called the 25th Prelude.Through meticulous examination of the piece, Stephen offers an insight into Chopin's compositional world, examining his romantic style; his harmonic and melodic invention; and his imaginative exploitation of musical form.

Arms and the Man

Arms and the Man by Bernard Shaw
with Rory Kinnear and Lydia Leonard. Directed by David Timson

It is 1885, and there is trouble in the Balkans. The Serbians and the Bulgarians are at war.
Raina Petkoff is convinced her fiancé Major Sergius Saranoff will glorify himself in the war and become her hero - but after a dramatic encounter with a down-to-earth Serbian officer who hides in her room, she is brought face to face with the mundane truth about the conflict rather than its glories. The ideals and realities of war, hypocrisy and nationalism are all entertainingly explored in this rare romantic comedy by one of our most acerbic writers.

Technical DirectionNorman Goodman

An Ukemi Productions Ltd production for Radio 3.


SUN 22:00 Sunday Feature (b00rjy9k)
A World Beyond Narnia

Louise Doughty explores the phenomenal growth of the Young Adult Fiction market, which made over £50 million in the UK in 2009, and asks if it is at last coming of age.

Until recently, when girls and boys outgrew the children's sections of bookshops and libraries, they moved on - for better or worse - to adult novels. This is no longer the case. The Young Adult Fiction market made over £50 million in the UK in 2009, an astonishing growth of 89% on the previous year, and while half of this was spent on Stephenie Meyer's extraordinarily succesful Twilight series, the genre does now seem to have reached a critical mass. As well as being a novelist and broadcaster, Louise Doughty is also the mother of a teenage daughter, and for this very contemporary edition of Radio Three's Sunday Feature, she explores the origins and appeal of the genre and asks what it tells us about the lives of teenagers today.

Louise's starting point is her own memory of reading the final book of C.S.Lewis' Narnia series. In The Last Battle, Susan is exiled from Narnia because she no longer believes and because she has become too interested in "lipstick and nylons and invitations..." but if Lewis had no interest in the teen years, there have been, ever since the 1950s, a growing number of writers for whom this readership is highly appealing.

Louise speaks to Richelle Mead, author of the cult Vampire Academy series, to Patrick Ness, Meg Rossoff and William Nicholson, all of them award-winning authors for children and young people, and she visits Crossley Heath School in Halifax to hear from young adults themselves about what reading means to them and about their likes and dislikes when it comes to "A World Beyond Narnia."

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00rjycs)
Stephen Sondheim (1930-)

Sondheim's Early Life and Career

As part of his 80th birthday celebrations, Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim looks back over his life and work, with Donald Macleod. The result is a fascinating retrospective of half a century of creativity, with the artist himself as tour guide. Along the way, he explodes a few myths about the inner workings of musical theatre.
In the first of the week's programmes, Sondheim talks about his childhood, his parents' divorce, his near-adoption by the Hammerstein family and his apprenticeship with Oscar Hammerstein, the lyricist of Oklahoma! Then there's the rollercoaster ride of his early career: his first, abortive Broadway show; two amazing breaks, when he was commissioned to write the lyrics for first West Side Story, then Gypsy; his unhappy collaboration with Richard Rogers; and his major creative breakthrough with Company, a musical with situations and characters but no conventional plot, and the first appearance of characteristic Sondheim subject-matter - the virtual impossibility of forming good relationships. As one British critic observed, "It is extraordinary that a musical, that most trivial of forms, should be able to plunge as Company does, with perfect congruity, into the profound depths of human perplexity and misery.".


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00rjycy)

There are also two choral symphonies - Stravinsky's moving Symphony of Psalms and, rounding the week off, Beethoven's magnificent final symphony - the 9th. Another great 9th symphony also appears on the week's schedule, the unfinished epic by Bruckner. The conductor who most frequently appears during the week is Mariss Jansons, one of the world's finest maestros and now the BRSO's Chief Conductor. He shares the rostrum with, among others, the young British conductor Daniel Harding and the veteran Herbert Blomstedt from Sweden. All in all it is a week of inspiring music-making from a wonderful orchestra. Presented by Penny Gore.

Universities

This is a time of great change in universities. There are already more potential students than places, and a possibility of an increase to tuition fees after the election. Pressure is also growning on universities due to stronger assessments of the impact they are making on the economy as a whole, which in turn is leading to claims from those in the humanities that arts subjects will lose out to the sciences in the future. In addition, emerging nations such as China and India are producing many more graduates than previously to feed their growing economies, and questions arise as to the ways in which our own students and institutions can keep pace. Rana Mitter chairs a round table discussion on the ways in which universities and the academic community will respond to the demands of a changing economy.

Fringe Magnetic and Tom Challenger's Ma at the Loop Festival

Jez Nelson presents music from two of London's most talented young groups. Ten-piece Fringe Magnetic, led by trumpeter Rory Simmons, have roots in chamber music, folk and gritty New York down-town jazz, while saxophonist Tom Challenger's quartet Ma brings together serene melodies, electronic soundscapes and dub heavy grooves featuring ubiquitous drummer Dave Smith.

These performances were recording during the Loop Collective festival at London's Vortex in February. Loop Collective, which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, has a D.I.Y. approach to performing, promoting and recording music and as a result has become a breeding ground for innovative young musicians.

Stephen Sondheim (1930-)

Follies, A Little Night Music and Pacific Overtures

Continuing our series in which Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim talks to Donald Macleod. This programme features three shows that in typical Sondheim fashion expanded the notion of what the musical could be, with razor-sharp language and cracking tunes to boot: Follies, in which a reunion of Ziegfield-style Follies stars in a derelict theatre becomes a metaphor for the death of the American dream; A Little Night Music, a musical about relationships written almost entirely in waltz-time, that spawned Sondheim's most famous song, 'Send in the Clowns'; and Pacific Overtures, a 'kabuki musical' with an all-Japanese cast - an exploration of the 19th-century westernization of Japan, seen from the Japanese perspective.

Produced by Chris Barstow.

On Night Waves tonight Anne McElvoy talks to the film-maker George Carey about his new documentary "A Long Weekend with the Son of God". The film tells the story of Carey's attempts to meet and talk to Jesus Vissarion, a former policeman who has gathered around 4000 disciples who believe that hs is the new messiah.

Anne also talks to the American writer Dave Eggers about his new book Zietoun, which tells the story of one family's experience in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Abdulrahman Zeitoun is a New Orleans contractor who remains in the city in the floods which followed the hurricane and spends several days helping out those left behind in the disaster. But his world is turned upside down when he is arrested and held in prison as the authorities try to restore order in the city.

And what is art? And what is it worth? We talk to the artist Bill Drummond as he publishes a book in which he describes how in trying to answer some of art's perennial questions he took a painting worth $20000 and cut it into 20000 pieces. Should they each be worth one pound? And if not, why not? Bill joins the writer and critic Steven Connor to ask some basic questions.

And Susannah Clapp reviews Andrew Upton's new version of Mikhail Bulgakov's rarely performed masterpiece The White Guard, at The National Theatre. The play is set in Ukraine during the Russian civil war. Its depiction of the lives of the Russian intelligensia caused members of the audience to faint when the play premiered in Moscow in 1926, as they recognised their plight in that of the Turbin family, around who the play is centered.

Stephen Sondheim (1930-)

Sweeney Todd and Merrily We Roll Along

Continuing our series in which Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim talks to Donald Macleod. This third programme focuses on just two musicals: Sweeney Todd, widely regarded as Sondheim's masterpiece, an extraordinarily powerful work which he has modestly described as "a small and scary evening about the need for revenge"; and Merrily We Roll Along, a tale of disintegrating friendships and compromised idealism, narrated, in a characteristic structural twist, backwards. Sweeney Todd was a huge success and is widely performed today, from schools (in a special educational edition) to opera houses; despite a marvellous score, Merrily We Roll Along failed to catch the public mood and remains Sondheim's biggest flop to date. Among other topics, Sondheim also discusses his long-time collaboration with director Hal Prince, the logistics of working with an orchestrator, and the heart attack he suffered in 1979, just three weeks after the opening of Sweeney.

Episode 3

The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is one of Europe's leading ensembles and is able to attract the finest conductors and soloists. In this week of programmes, recorded at public concerts and mostly given in the orchestra's home city of Munich, we'll be hearing several large-scale choral works including Schönberg's epic Gurrelieder, Mendelssohn's Elijah and Schubert's final setting of the Mass. There are also two choral symphonies - Stravinsky's moving Symphony of Psalms and, rounding the week off, Beethoven's magnificent final symphony - the 9th. Another great 9th symphony also appears on the week's schedule, the unfinished epic by Bruckner. The conductor who most frequently appears during the week is Mariss Jansons, one of the world's finest maestros and now the BRSO's Chief Conductor. He shares the rostrum with, among others, the young British conductor Daniel Harding and the veteran Herbert Blomstedt from Sweden. All in all it is a week of inspiring music-making from a wonderful orchestra. Presented by Penny Gore.

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00rkdnp)
Year of Science 2010

Paul Davies

As part of Night Waves year of programme-length interviews with leading scientists, Matthew Sweet will be asking: Is there anyone out there - and if there is, what on earth will we do when we find out?

Matthew is in extended conversation with the leading cosmologist and astrobiologist Paul Davies, whose specialism is the detection of extra-terrestrial life and the consequences for science and society. Davies is one of Britain's leading popularisers of science, but he's also a controversialist whose work takes him to essence of what it is to be human: "I like to ponder the big questions of existence" he says, "How did the universe begin? What is the destiny of mankind? Is there a meaning to the universe". And fittingly Davies is currently head of Beyond: Center for Fundamental Questions in Science in Arizona.

Matthew will be asking Paul Davies to delve into the intriguing question of what is known as "First Contact" with alien life, and why scientists continue to believe in its importance. Davies own books include "Are We Alone?" and most recently "The Eerie Silence". And Matthew will be pressing him on his more controversial forays into religion, which have seen some fellow scientists accuse him of a kind of theism. At a time of such acrimonious disputes between atheists and believers, can scientists like Davies really comfortably tackle this issue with book titles such as "The Mind of God?"

Broadcast to coincide with the BBC's World of Wonder, year of science programmes - Night Waves is dedicating one programme each month to a 45 minute interview with a leading scientist.

Producer Fiona McLean.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00rkdqt)
Stephen Sondheim (1930-)

Sunday in the Park with George

Continuing our series in which Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim talks to Donald Macleod. The fourth programme features the musical that grew out of a painting; a tangled web of fairytales; and a positively murderous show about the assassins, and would-be-assassins, of US presidents. The painting in question is Seurat's hugely famous A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, and the work it inspired was the Pulitzer-prize-winning Sunday in the Park with George, a deeply personal show about the joys and the costs of creation. The fairytales are the ones familiar to every child, but in Into the Woods they are woven together in an extraordinarily intricate way, before completely unraveling in the second act. Assassins caused a huge furore when it was unveiled in 1990, not least because it happened to coincide with the opening salvo of the first Gulf War, Operation Desert Storm - under such circumstances, a show that climaxed with the assassination of JFK was bound to be interpreted as deeply unpatriotic. Sondheim also talks about the logistics of mounting a Broadway production, and the pleasures of "trancing out" during the creative process.

Produced by Chris Barstow.

THU 21:15 Night Waves (b00rkds7)
Alex Callinicos/Macbeth

On tonight's programme, the psychology of time - do we take our most finite resource for granted? Philip talks to Stanford University's emeritus professor of psychology, Philip Zimbardo, about his new book on how our perception of time influences the decisions we make - and how conflicting time perspectives live at the heart of the political process.

In his forthcoming book Bonfire of Illusions Marxist political theorist Alex Callinicos argues that the Russian war with Georgia and the collapse of Lehman Brothers in the late summer and early autumn of 2008 put an end to the post-Cold War order. While Russia asserted its resistance to NATO expansion to its borders through its military action in Georgia, the collapse of the investment bank ushered in a global financial crisis, both of which undermined the authority of the United States on the World stage. Callinicos discusses this idea - and the causes and solutions to the current crisis - with Philip Dodd and with the Times columnist Oliver Kamm.

The Cahiers du Cinema, which was founded in 1951, revolutionised film-making and ways of writing about film. It's writers - among them those who were to become the stars of the French New Wave: Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut, Claude Chabrol, Eric Rohmer and Jacques Rivette - helped establish cinema, which had previously been seen as a lesser extension of theatre or literature, as an art form in its own right. Emilie Bickerton has just written the story of the Cahiers, which has now passed out of French ownership (last year the British publishing house Phaidon bought it from Le Monde), and she will be coming in to talk about the magazine that she argues was once the most influential project in the history of film.

Stephen Sondheim (1930-)

Passion, The Frogs and Road Show

Concluding our series in which Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim talks to Donald Macleod. In the final programme, Passion, a kind of reversal of the Beauty and the Beast myth, which Sondheim has described as "one long rhapsody . a straightforward, non-ironic love story"; The Frogs, a contemporary take on Aristophanes originally staged in the swimming pool at Yale University (with Meryl Streep and Sigourney Weaver in the chorus line); and Road Show, a musical about the Mizner brothers which proves the old adage that "musicals aren't written, they're re-written" - it's currently in its fourth incarnation.

Produced by Chris Barstow.

FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00rkdvc)
Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra

Episode 5

The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra is one of Europe's leading ensembles and is able to attract the finest conductors and soloists. In this week of programmes, recorded at public concerts and mostly given in the orchestra's home city of Munich, we'll be hearing several large-scale choral works including Schönberg's epic Gurrelieder, Mendelssohn's Elijah and Schubert's final setting of the Mass. There are also two choral symphonies - Stravinsky's moving Symphony of Psalms and, rounding the week off, Beethoven's magnificent final symphony - the 9th. Another great 9th symphony also appears on the week's schedule, the unfinished epic by Bruckner. The conductor who most frequently appears during the week is Mariss Jansons, one of the world's finest maestros and now the BRSO's Chief Conductor. He shares the rostrum with, among others, the young British conductor Daniel Harding and the veteran Herbert Blomstedt from Sweden. All in all it is a week of inspiring music-making from a wonderful orchestra. Presented by Penny Gore.

Takacs Quartet

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.
The Takacs Quartet returns this week for more of its triumphant Beethoven string quartet cycle at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Today, three quartets representing the different stylistic periods in the composer's life and work. First, the quartet Op. 18 No. 3, an early work which still shows his maturity as a Classical composer. Then, the quartet Op. 59, No.2, part of the 'Razumovsky' quartets from his middle period, displaying striking, pioneering features and commissioned by the Russian ambassador in Vienna. Finally, the rather mysterious string quartet Op. 127, the first of his late quartets, masterpieces written in the composer's final years.

Mentors

Ian Watson

Science Fiction writer Ian Watson recalls his time spent sequestered with the legendary film-director Stanley Kubrick, and considers how the unforgettable, hot-house experience of script-writing alongside this most obsessive and perfectionist of artists has marked his life and career.


FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00rkf1c)
Mary Ann Kennedy

Mary Ann Kennedy with CDs from across the globe, and a studio session with Razia Said, a Malagasy singer whose new album 'Zebu Nation' rediscovers the roots music of the island.

Razia Said lived in Madagascar until she was eleven years old, until she moved with her family first to Gabon, then southern France, and finally New York. In the USA she sang mostly R&B, but found herself increasingly drawn to Malagasy traditional music. Her new album was recorded mostly on Madagascar, using local musicians, and her aim is to draw attention to the environmental challenges facing the island.

Presented by Mary Ann Kennedy
Produced by Felix Carey
