SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b00rptxb)
The Arch-Musician

We tend to think of the Italian Renaissance as a cauldron of iconoclastic ideas. But that's far less true of music than of visual art or science. In today's Music Feature Catherine Bott goes in search of a composer born 500 years ago who found that being a *musical* innovator was no easy task: Nicola Vicentino.

Imagine an octave divided into 31 parts - 31 very small intervals, 'microtones' - rather than the 12 semitones we're used to today. Sounds weird - and it sounded weird to people when Vicentino first came up with idea in the 1500s. 'But opposition won't stop me,' he said. He composed microtonal music, he built a 'superharpsichord' (archicembalo) and 'superorgan' to play it, he trained choirs to sing it, he wrote a book promoting it.

'Learning and investigating new things - that's human nature' was Vicentino's motto. Every page of his book is filled with 'my ideas'. His radical musical ideas provoked every possible reaction - from vitriolic hostility to fanatical support. Traditionalists were horrified. Some of the most powerful people in Italy gave Vicentino their patronage. Adoring pupils dubbed him Arcimusico - the Arch-Musician.

In this programme, Catherine Bott uncovers Vicentino's remarkable story, exploring what it meant to be a musical innovator in sixteenth-century Italy. How did Vicentino come up with his ideas? How did he try to sell them? Why did people react in the way they did? What were the consequences - for Vicentino himself, and for the future of music?

Perhaps the biggest obstacle Vicentino faced is that his music is very hard to perform. But in the twenty-first century people are at last beginning to prove it's possible. Catherine Bott has a go herself, and meets other people who've tried - including members of the BBC Singers who tackled Vicentino's music specially for this programme with conductor James Weeks.

With Anton Lesser as Vicentino and contributions from Manfred Cordes, Davide Daolmi, Mary Hollingsworth, Margaret Hunter, Lewis Jones, Laurie Stras, James Weeks, Jon Wild and members of the BBC Singers.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00rpty3)
Antonio de Cabezon

Catherine Bott presents a profile of the 16th century Spanish composer Antonio de Cabezon. Blind from childhood, Cabezon quickly rose to prominence as a virtuoso organist, and entered the service of the Spanish Royal Family in 1538, where he remained for his entire career. From 1543, when Prince Felipe became Regent of Spain, Cabezon and his younger brother both accompanied the prince on his numerous journeys throughout Europe: Italy, Germany, The Netherlands and England. His work influenced many other major composers of the day - not least his countryman Tomas Luis de Victoria. Cabezon was among the most important composers of his time and arguably the first major Iberian keyboard composer.


SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00rjycy)
Janine Jansen, Itamar Golan

Today's Lunchtime Concert from Wigmore Hall features violinist Janine Jansen and pianist Itamar Golan. Their programme comprises Beethoven's lyrical 'Spring' Sonata, alongside two folk inspired works by Bartok, his 2nd Violin Sonata and Rhapsody no.1.

Bartok Violin Sonata No. 2 Sz. 76
Beethoven Violin Sonata No.5 in F, Op. 24
Bartok Rhapsody No. 1.


SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00rqgdf)
2010

World Routes Academy

Lucy Duran is joined in the studio by Radio 3's World Routes Academy mentee, the young oud player Khyam Allami. Lucy talks to Khyam about his roots and is given a personal introduction to the Iraqi maqam tradition of music. Featuring live oud performances and exclusive recordings of Iraqi musicians from the BBC archives. Producer Helene Frisby.

Khyam is a London based musician of Iraqi descent and the first beneficiary of Radio 3's World Routes Academy which aims to support and inspire young world-music artists by bringing them together with an internationally renowed mentor belonging to the same tradition. Khyam's mentor is the celebrated Iraqi guitarist, singer and composer Ilham al Madfai, who lives in Jordan and who Khyam will be working with in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan later this year.

BBC Radio 3 World Routes Academy is about celebrating world music talent by both supporting existing performers through exploring new collaborations and enabling younger musicians to develop and hone their skills. The scheme offers both participants the opportunity to share their musical experiences with particular emphasis on the importance of the mentor passing on his extensive musical experience and cultural heritage to the younger musician. Performance is key to the project and the musicians will feature in BBC studio sessions, workshops, performance and concerts.

The forthcoming collaboration between Khyam Allami and Ilham al-Madfai reflects the development of traditions amongst musical refugees in their new homes and how their desire to fit in with their new environment is both challenged and inspired by their yearning for the land that made them the musicians they are. Ilham left Iraq for Jordan and his musical influences reflect western influences and genres. Khyam's family left Iraq for Syria and then London and it seems that as he travels further from his homeland the closer he is drawn to his roots and the hard-core musical traditions of his native Iraq.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Library (b00rpv07)
A Tribute to John Dankworth

In this special edition of Jazz Library, Alyn Shipton introduces an archive interview in which John Dankworth selected some of his finest recordings. These range from his work with the Johnny Dankworth Seven and his big band to the settings he wrote for Cleo Laine, as well as music composed for films and television.


SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (b00rpv16)
Live from the Met

Ambroise Thomas' Hamlet

A singer known for depth of his performances leads the cast in Ambroise Thomas' Hamlet, live from the Metropolitan Opera, New York. It's a 19th century romantic interpretation of Shakespeare's tragedy, originally with a happy ending, but this was subsequently changed to reflect the play a little more closely. Simon Keenlyside is the tormented Prince seeking vengeance for his father's death, in one of the few chances for a baritone to play the lead role. Marlis Petersen is his ill-fated love, Ophelia, to whom Thomas gives an extended and truly memorable mad scene.

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

Hamlet: Simon Keenlyside (baritone)
Ophelia: Marlis Petersen (soprano)

Sir John Dankworth Special

Geoffrey Smith presents a selection of listeners' jazz requests, celebrating the life of Sir John Dankworth.


SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b00rpv3b)
The Haunted Moustache

Musician David Bramwell delves into the world of Victorian psychic phenomena, modern witchcraft and mind altering states in the search for the story behind an inherited moustache. "In the early summer of 1991 I inherited a moustache from my Great Aunt Sylvia. She made it to the over-ripe age of 96 before sailing out of this world, fag in hand, leaving behind an unfinished jigsaw of the Eiffel Tower and a forlorn cat..."

Obsessed with finding out the identity of the moustache's owner - an unlikely inheritance from his Great Aunt Sylvia - musician David Bramwell sets off on a quest to record séances and psychics, the effects of mind altering Amazonian plants, hippies and phantom orchestras - a soundtrack pulling the audience into the world of a Victorian deceased freak show host - Ambrose Oddfellow.

The Haunted Moustache is a meditation on one man's obsession with freak shows, synchronicity, the occult and the existence or not of a spirit world. Drawing on the tales of Victorian spiritualist fakery from magician Paul Zenon, the gothic charms of The Last Tuesday Society, the magical early electronica of musician Sarah Angliss, not to mention a cup of tea shared with a Wiccan Priest in suburban Shoreham, Bramwell travels from the wilds of Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire, where the moustache's owner is recalled on the stage of the magical 1920's Kinema in the Woods, before ending in a Brighton council flat, with Dali muse Drako Oho Zarhazar, sharing the messages concealed in his tattoo.

SUNDAY 28 MARCH 2010

SUN 00:00 The Early Music Show (b00n6ykm)
Lully Lullay

Lucie Skeaping explores the tender art of the lullaby, from ancient melody to Elizabethan song, and discovers how this most intimate of forms offers inspiration to the world of early music.

The act of rocking a child to sleep with a gentle tune is one of our most simple and natural forms of music-making. They are common to all cultures and ages, and though they are varied, they all share remarkable similarities. Their words are soothing, using onomatopoeic and nonsense sounds, like the 'ninna nanna' of Italy and the English 'lulla lulla'.

Often these lullabies are passed down from generation to generation and are known throughout regions and countries. But they are also transformed by this oral transmission. Many look outward to nocturnal themes, or to daily chores and the baby itself.

Religious themes are also widespread. By its very nature, the lullaby has a certain gentle spirituality and its serenity is particularly suited to the Nativity. It reminds us of Mary's pure devotion to the baby Jesus, her gentle care and the universality of this particular kind of miracle. Many Christmas carols incorporate gentle rocking rhythms, simple structures, repetitive motifs or common phrases, like the 'Lully Lullay' of the well-known Coventry Carol. Many were also well-known secular tunes that were given devotional subjects in an attempt to lead audiences away from profane subjects. Others depict holy figures in easily-recognised scenes from daily life - Joseph rocking the cradle or Mary washing nappies.

As well as featuring traditional music, and anonymous composers from around the world, the programme features pieces by English composers Anthony Holborne, William Byrd and John Bennet.

SUN 22:00 Sunday Feature (b00rpvsy)
The Glasgow Boys

Highly acclaimed author and comedian A L Kennedy stalks the industrial past of her home city, investigating a group of trailblazing young painters who achieved international fame and encouraged Glasgow's new, brassy tycoons to nurture a contemporary art scene that continues to thrive today.
A portrait of a city as much as these painters, A L Kennedy's witty, insightful journey takes her deep into the history and cultural soul of Glasgow. She talks to leading biographer of the Boys, Roger Bilcliffe, to establish how the city's low cultural standing galvanized the painters' defiant attitude, a spirit which would later inspire Charles Rennie Mackintosh and countless others. Legendary Glasgow author and artist Alasdair Gray describes the unexpected inspiration to be drawn from the great industrial heritage, while painter Sandy Moffat makes a moving case for the enduring relevance of the Boys.

Today, Glasgow's vibrant arts scene is taken for granted, and it churns out Turner Prize nominees virtually every year. But a century ago, it was unheard of for the city's artists to be taken seriously beyond their heavily industrialized home town, especially in the face of Edinburgh's staid cultural elitism. Taking their cue from the radical French realists, James Guthrie and John Lavery, among others, produced some of the most influential paintings ever to come out of the country, and established the city's art community for generations to come.


SUN 22:45 Words and Music (b00rpvtd)

Tamsin Greig and Neil Pearson read prose by fellow observer-wanderers Gilbert White, William Cobbett and Richard Jefferies, and poetry by such lovers of the south as Flora Thompson, Andrew Young, Hilaire Belloc, Molly Holden and, of course, Edward Thomas himself. The music includes orchestral music and songs by John Ireland, Michael Tippett, The Copper Family and the English Acoustic Collective among others.


SUN 23:45 Jazz Line-Up (b00rpvtq)
Vincent Herring/2010 Oxford Jazz Festival

Julian Joseph interviews Vincent Herring, a saxophonist who is a major voice on the international jazz scene."Herring" first toured Europe and the United States with Lionel Hampton's Big Band in the early 1980's. As he developed his musicianship, he began to work with Nat Adderley, a liaison that continued for nine years. Along the way he worked and/or recorded with Cedar Walton, Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Hayes, Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers. Vincent also appeared as a guest soloist at Carnegie Hall with John Faddis and The Carnegie Hall Big Band.
Just before his recent show at Ronnie Scott's, Herring was interviewed by Julian Joseph about his current "Morning Star" album which brings out Herrings' funk/ fusion feel to his music.
On the same programme Julian Joseph previews the forthcoming Oxford Jazz Festival an action-packed four days of jazz from 1st to 4th April 2010, with acclaimed jazz artists performing in some of Oxford's finest and most historic venues, including the Ashmolean, the Bodleian Library, the North Wall Arts Centre, and Saint Michael at the North Gate, the oldest building in Oxford, and fuses them with some of the finest UK jazz band around.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00rpvxz)
William Byrd (1543-1623)

Episode 1

Listen to his music and you'd think 16th-century William Byrd was the very model of an Elizabethan citizen, a refined character capable of producing some of the most beautiful music for the church ever composed, as well as inventive keyboard and vocal pieces which charm the ear and the mind in equal measure. But, as Donald Macleod discovers, Byrd was also a complex man who pushed the religious mores of his age to the limit, and simultaneously indulged in a lifetime of petty-fogging legal cases which even Victor Meldrew would have been proud of.

His story takes us to Lincoln, where he took his first major job. The atmosphere couldn't have been more unsuitable; a Royal inspection had decided that the music was far too lavish for the new Protestant regime, and recommended not just simplifying the worship but even the dismantling of the organ. But this kind of challenge was to be the making of Byrd; again and again he would find ways to work the system, and was quickly found lavishing the cathedral's money on organ upgrades and scouting for new chorister talent.

Later in the week we focus on squarely on his Catholic defiance, in works such as 'Why do I use my paper, pen and ink' which refers explicitly to Edmund Campion, brutally executed at Tyburn. And we hear how Byrd was repeatedly reported to the authorities for failing to attend church, and even prevented his servants from worshipping. His personal connections read like an episode of Crimewatch, countless leading Catholics whose names were circulated by the authorities for their religious dissent.

But we also explore another, more human side to Byrd: his irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit. This saw him take one of music's greatest ever financial risks as he set up the country's first ever music publishing concern with his great mentor Thomas Tallis, and which at first pushed him to the brink of bankruptcy. And as well as musical interests, we find him pursuing a hectic life as a property speculator, forever in the courts evicting tenants, or battling over some arcane right of way.

The week begins, though, with a fresh look at Byrd's musical beginnings. New research has revealed that he grew up in Lincoln, not London as previously thought, and also allows us a fascinating glimpse of his bookcase, home to the most controversial texts of the day.

MON 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00rpw10)
Paul Lewis, Steven Osborne

Presented by Ian Skelly

Two of the most respected young pianists in Britain join forces to a selection of Schubert's works for piano duo. Schubert himself obviously loved playing piano duets with friends in the salons of Vienna, but the pieces he's left us are not just fun to play, they also take the genre to new heights of emotional expression. These are not arrangements of orchestral works or expanded pieces for solo pianist - but music specially written to use all the drama and dynamic possibilities afforded by two pianists at one piano. Recorded at London's Wigmore Hall in January.

Allegro in A minor D947 Lebensstürme (Allegro ma non troppo)
Variations in B minor D823 (Andantino)
Fugue in E minor D952 (Allegro moderato)
Rondo in A D951 (Allegretto quasi andantino)
Variations on an Original Theme in Ab D813 (Allegretto)
Fantasie in F minor D940 (Allegro molto moderato)

MON 21:15 Night Waves (b00l8tfn)
Landmarks - The Second Sex

Night Waves celebrates the bible of modern feminism - Simone De Beauvoir's The Second Sex - published 60 years ago.
In a Landmark edition, Rana Mitter discusses the book and its legacy with Germaine Greer, Christina Howells, Lisa Appignanesi, Carole Seymour-Jones and Julia Kristeva.
Beauvoir was one half of the most famous intellectual couple of the twentieth century - her partner being Jean Paul Sartre. She often used her complex relationship with Sartre - which included ménage à trois and numerous lovers on both sides - as inspiration for her work.
In The Second Sex, Beauvoir argued that "one is not born a woman, but becomes one". Throughout history, she said, women have been defined as the "other" sex, the "second sex", and an aberration from the "normal" male sex. With these arguments Beauvoir led the way towards the explosion of new wave of feminism after 1968.
Now, at a time when feminism's future is in the balance, Rana Mitter and guests ask what has The Second Sex got to say about gender politics today? (Rpt)

Producer: Timothy Prosser.

MON 23:00 Belief (b00rpw1q)
Sara Maitland

Joan Bakewell explores the beliefs of artists, thinkers, religious leaders and other public figures in a returning series of programmes on Radio 3. Tonight Joan Bakewell's guest is Sara Maitland, a ground-breaking Christian feminist. Her first novel Daughter of Jerusalem won the Somerset Maugham Award in 1978. She is a writer of novels and short stories, many of which interweave ancient myths and truths with contemporary, especially women's, experience. She has also written on theology. Most recently she has written of her journey into quietness and solitude in A Book of Silence. She now lives in prayerful isolation in a cottage on the Scottish moors.

Belief returns to Radio 3 each evening this week as Joan Bakewell discusses their beliefs with artists, thinkers and public figures. Junaid Bhatti bridges the worlds of finance and Islam; Emma Restall Orr practises and teaches about Druidry, a branch of Paganism; Mark Haddon is "an atheist in a religious mould", and the author of the best-selling The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night; and James Jones, the Bishop of Liverpool, is an evangelical who engages with major issues of social justice, urban planning and the environment.

Berlin Revisited

Berlin Revisited

Jez Nelson presents a concert given by Hammeriver, an ensemble featuring musicians from Australia and Europe, recorded at Berlin's B-flat club. The group led by Australian harpist Clare Cooper uses different elements of Alice Coltrane's music to create new pieces that embrace techniques from electro-acoustic music, psychedelic rock and jazz.

Clare Cooper formed the first Hammeriver group in 2003 and there are now two variations, one based in Berlin the other in Sydney. This concert features Cooper alongside pianist Chris Abrahams from Australian minimalist trio The Necks, two bassists Werner Dafeldecker and Clayton Thomas, saxophonist Tobias Delius and Christof Kurzmann on electronics.

BBC Philharmonic/HK Gruber

HK Gruber makes his formal debut at Manchester's Bridgewater Hall in his new role as the BBC Philharmonic's Composer/Conductor with the UK premiere of his trumpet concerto: 'Busking', performed with soloist Håkan Hardenberger.

He starts his tenure with a programme with a typically 20th Century slant, presenting excerpts from Weill's Threepenny Opera as well as Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements alongside his own work. His own music is strongly influenced by jazz and cabaret, and he is fascinated by the wealth of classical repertoire from the last century which he believes to be under-explored. Busking is a three movement concerto for string orchestra in which the soloist plays on three different trumpets, getting the instruments to variously twang, squeak and squawk, depending which mute is used.

HG Wells/The Pacific/Slum Cities/No Greater Love

Philip Dodd examines the life of H.G. Wells. Known as the father of science fiction, Wells was a respected social commentator with views that were ahead of his time, on human rights for example, but he also held some opinions seen as abhorrent to today's sensibilities. Philip will be talking to Michael Sherborne who has just published a new biography, based in part on correspondence with Wells' mistresses and his illegitimate daughter, which challenges how he has been perceived in recent years.

Historian Laurence Rees and journalist Michael Goldfarb review a new dramatisation of the American campaign in the Pacific during World War II and ask - has producer Tom Hanks become an unofficial chronicler of American history?

And there's a look at the cities are growing and changing globally - Lagos in Nigeria or Sao Paulo in Brazil are developing their own models of city life as the outer poorer districts, with their slums and shanty towns are shaping the urban future. Discussing slum cities are Patrick Wakely, co-author of The Challenge of the Slums,
the playwright Gabriel Gbadamosi, and architect and novelist Lesley Lokko who grew up in Ghana and is currently working in Johannesburg, South Africa.

And film director Michael Whyte talks about his latest documentary No Greater Love about a group of Carmelite nuns living in seclusion in London's Notting Hill Gate.

Tonight Joan Bakewell's guest is Junaid Bhatti, who chose to leave the world of conventional banking and to help start Britain's first Shariah-compliant bank, the Islamic Bank of Britain. He explains the fundamentals of Islamic banking and how, in principle, the practice of Islamic finance avoids the excesses and vulnerability of conventional banking which led to the credit crunch. He also talks about how he became Baron of Ballencrieff, a Scottish feudal title of nobility, and his experience growing up and working as a Muslim in Britain including a brief spell managing acts in a comedy club. He believes extremism within his religion should be condemned and the preachers of hate should be challenged.

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00rpwfk)
BBC Singers/City of London Sinfonia/David Hill

Presented by Ian Skelly

David Hill directs the BBC Singers and the City of London Sinfonia in this Holy Week concert, recorded at London's Cadogan Hall, of penitential sacred works for chorus and orchestra. The composers are two of musical history's most precocious figures - Felix Mendelssohn and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Mendelssohn's "Verleih' uns Frieden ("In thy mercy, grant us peace") and "Wie der Hirsch schreit nach firshcem Wasse" (his setting of words from Psalm 42 - "Like as the hart desireth the waterbrooks") - are works completed in his twenties, not long after his ground-breaking 1829 public performance of J S Bach's "St Matthew Passion" whose influence can be heard in these works. Mozart's great Requiem in D minor which, unfinished at the composer's death in 1791, has been the subject of a number of stories and myths concerning the mysterious, sinister, stranger who allegedly commissioned it and who caused the sickly Mozart to believe that the Requiem would become his own musical epitaph.

The Fool

On the eve of April Fool's Day Night Waves is devoted to a special program on the figure of the fool in British Culture, examining how the ideas embodied in the fool resonate in a culture still anxious about what its comedians can and cannot say. Matthew Sweet talks to comedians Barry Cryer and Steve Punt as well as literary historian Paul Allen to discuss the right to offence, the social function of humour and how foolishness can hold a mirror up to the audience and speak truth to power.

Matthew will also talk to actor Kathryn Hunter who is playing the fool in the RSC's current production of King Lear, Comedian turned Academic, Oliver Double, and TV producer Paul Jackson whose CV includes credits on Steptoe and Son, The Young Ones and Heil honey I'm home - a sit com about Adolf Hitler's domestic arrangements.

WED 23:00 Belief (b00rpwg8)
Emma Restall Orr

Joan Bakewell explores the beliefs of artists, thinkers, religious leaders and other public figures in a returning series of programmes on Radio 3. Tonight Joan Bakewell discusses belief with the writer and teacher on Pagan practice and ethics, Emma Restall Orr, founder of the International Druid Network. Pagan traditions have been attracting many new followers in recent years. Pagan beliefs resonate with the questioning of established authority, and active respect for the natural environment and the forces of nature. Emma Restall Orr came to Druidry as a philosophy and practice which gave her meaning and purpose as she battled against a painful inherited illness and emerged from a reckless adolescence. She has embraced Druidry as a native pre-Christian British tradition and written extensively about it. She promotes its creative transformation into an inclusive, diverse philosophy and religious practice able to engage with current moral dilemmas. She also founded the organisation Honouring the Ancient Dead, which promotes new ways for museums and heritage sites to display their respect for pre-Christian human remains.

Presented by Ian Skelly

Bach's setting of the Passion of Christ as told in the Gospel of St. John was written for Good Friday 1724 and is filled with some of Bach's most vivid and dramatic music which tells the Easter story in an almost operatic way. In this performance legendary Dutch conductor and organist Ton Koopman, leads a performance given by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and starry soloists including Andreas Scholl and Mark Padmore as the Evangelist. Recorded in Munich in February.

THU 21:15 Night Waves (b00rpwkh)
Ideas Election/Maggi Hambling

Ideas are supposedly rare things in a British election. As the candidates prepare for the national hustings Anne McElvoy challenges four political thinkers to hunt down and map out the intellectual agendas of the moment.

Who are the new communitarians and what will they do with the post-bureaucratic state? Has the financial crisis sharpened ideological dividing lines or are new political ideas a luxury beyond the means of austerity minded politicians?

Around the table are Philip Blond, self-styled "Red Tory"; Matthew Taylor, former strategy adviser to Tony Blair and Director of the RSA: Jill Kirby, Director of Margaret Thatcher's favourite think-tank the Centre for Policy Studies and Giles Wilkes, political blogger and Chief Economist with the liberal think-tank Centre Forum.

And Anne goes to Canterbury Cathedral with the artist Maggi Hambling and Professor of Divinity, Richard Harries, to discuss the artistic representation of one of the most potent Christian symbols: the Cross.

For almost 25 years, Hambling, one of Britain's best known artists, has painted a cross every Good Friday. It's a kind of personal ritual - a tradition started when she created the first one in memory of her mother in the 1980s. This year Hambling's varied images of the crucifix are being displayed in the grounds of Canterbury Cathedral, alongside Easter images by another renowned painter, the artist Craigie Aitchison, who died in December.

But, as Anne discovers, it seems Hambling and Aitchison are not alone in the artistic community in being so attracted to the crucifixion, despite the secular tone of most of today's art. Artists, both religious and non-religious are continually drawn to the cross in their work - in many cases for sensitively exploring secular and personal topics. Beyond the Cathedral, Kent is hosting an exploration of the use of the cross in modern art across the county with works by Tracey Emin, Stanley Spencer and Marc Chagall.

In this programme, first broadcast a year ago, Joan speaks to the author, Mark Haddon, writer of the award winning book, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night. He describes himself as an atheist in a very religious mould, someone who is always asking the big questions of life. Where did we come from? Is there a meaning to all of this? For him, science and literature provide answers to these questions and celebrate some of the mysteries of life. (Repeat).

Early retirement gives Byrd the opportunity not just to complete some of his musical ambitions but also to try to settle numerous legal disputes which had dogged him for much of his later life. Not that it seemed to bother him - Byrd was always a man to relish his chance to make a case, as we find in his continued court appearances to defend his own religious activities.

FRI 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00rpwq6)
James McMillan

Part 1

Live from King's College, Cambridge

Presented by Louise Fryer

The Passion story as told by St. John is given a very personal setting by composer James MacMillan. This version of the Easter story is the one MacMillan feels most intimately acquainted, hearing it recited or sung every Good Friday in the Catholic liturgy. In this musical retelling he infuses it with his love of both Gregorian chant and opera and creates music that is at turns sparse and yet dramatic. Set in English and Latin the piece is scored for one principal soloist, Christ, sung tonight by baritone Mark Stone, with a chamber choir that narrates the story and a large chorus which takes the role of the other main characters of the Passion.

FRI 19:55 Twenty Minutes (b00m8pk6)
Wunderkind

In Wunderkind, her classic coming-of-age story, written when she was only 19, Carson McCullers explores the pressures and angsts of life as a child prodigy. Frances, a fifteen-year-old pianist, who for her whole childhood has been considered a shining musical prodigy, arrives for her lesson at her teacher's studio. Her playing has been faltering recently, while Heime, her fellow student and now rival, seems to be on the verge of an illustrious concert career. As the lesson progresses, the emotions spiral, until Frances has to face up to the fact that she might be only ordinary after all.

Carson Mccullers was one of the great writers of the American South. As a child she trained as a classical pianist but gave up her ambitions for a musical career after an emotional break in her relationship with a beloved piano teacher. In this highly autobiographical story, McCullers looks not only at the troubled life of the child prodigy, but also at the pressures and isolation of adolescence.

The reader is Madeleine Potter.
Producer: Justine Willett (Rpt).

FRI 21:15 The Verb (b00rpwrr)
Matthew Caley/CK Stead/Sparks/Writing and Social Work/Willy Vlautin

Matthew Caley

The poet reads from his new collection, in which every poem begins or ends with the word Apparently, and reflects on the slippery implications of that term in modern speech and culture.

CK Stead

As he collects a major new short story prize, the New Zealand poet and novelist considers his home country's special relationship with the short story and recommends a reading list.

Sparks

Sparks is a BBC Writersroom initiative designed to develop new writing talent, and at a recent workshop we challenged young writers to create a short radio drama for The Verb. In the first of a two-part series, Ella Hickson and Nicholas Pierpan, both Sparks graduates, present their plays Oranges and From A Distant Room.

Writing and Social Work

As the Orange Prize's chair of judges Daisy Goodwin complains that this year's longlist was so full of misery memoirs it made her feel 'like a social worker', The Verb talks to two social workers who write - Gaynor Arnold and Alistair Findlay - about how they combine the two activities.

Willy Vlautin

The novelist and singer songwriter discusses his passion for Raymond Carver and sings songs from the seedier side of the American Dream.


FRI 22:00 Composer of the Week (b00rqkzz)

FRI 23:00 Belief (b00rpwry)
James Jones, Bishop of Liverpool

Joan Bakewell explores the beliefs of artists, thinkers, religious leaders and other public figures in a returning series of programmes on Radio 3. Tonight, on the evening of Good Friday, Joan Bakewell welcomes as her final guest in the current series the Bishop of Liverpool, James Jones. He is strongly committed to the evangelical tradition with its emphasis on personal morality and salvation, but he also embraces a wide range of social concerns. In the arena of climate change he has been a pioneer of a renewed understanding of a Christian duty to care for the natural environment. Since coming to Liverpool in 1998 he has played a leading role in urban regeneration, and initiated an inner-city Academy jointly with the Roman Catholic Church. He chairs the Hillsborough Independent Panel in the continuing quest for understanding of the disaster 21 years ago this month when almost 100 Liverpool fans died in the crush at Sheffield Wednesday's stadium. He is also the Bishop for Prisons.


FRI 23:30 World on 3 (b00rpwsb)
Lopa Kothari

In session tonight, the Swiss trio Mama Rosin who have brought the original sound of Louisana to the banks of Lake Geneva. Lopa Kothari introduces the group and plays sounds from around the world. Producer James Parkin.

Mama Rosin, the Swiss Cajun/Zydeco subversives play electric melodeon (Cyril Yeterian), guitar/banjo/rub-board (Robin Girod) and drums (Xavier "Gérard Guilain" Bray). They live and love the Cajun/Zydeco music style, whose roots go way back to the 18th century. The adventures of Mama Rosin began with a demo-tape recorded and mixed by Pierre Omer (ex-The Dead Brothers). Swamped by this intriguing sound "Reverend Beat-Man" decided to sign the trio to his cult Voodoo Rhythm Records label. The resulting debut album, Tu As Perdu Ton Chemin came out in September 2008. The second album, Brule Lentement, followed in March 2009 (both on Voodoo Rhythm Records). Now, these two albums are released in the UK in March 2010, (on Voodoo Rhythm Records / distributed by Cargo UK).
