Harmonic Inspiration: Vivaldi's "L'Estro Armonico"

Lucie Skeaping looks at Vivaldi's groundbreaking Op.3 set of concertos for one, two or four violins entitled "L'Estro Armonico", which were published 300 years ago.

Vivaldi had them published in Amsterdam, which meant they were readily available throughout northern Europe. The 8 partbooks even landed on the desk of JS Bach, who found them so inspirational he set about making transcriptions of some of them for keyboard instruments.

We'll hear some of Vivaldi's concertos in recordings by The English Concert and I Musici, as well as one of Bach's transcriptions - the Concerto for 4 Harpsichords in a performance by Bach Collegium Stuttgart conducted by Helmuth Rilling.

Oceans

For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go trekking across the globe to bring us music from the peoples of some of the world's remotest regions, visiting many of the places featured in the TV series. This week the focus is on the music of ocean communities.

Galicia: Galicians consider themselves Celts, linked by sea travel with peoples in Northern France, Ireland and Scotland. Lucy Duran meets leading piper Xosé Manuel Budiño, and is invited to the village of Cebreiro for a party celebrating Celtic culture.

Papua New Guinea: To the accompaniment of the villagers, Andy Kershaw sets off on a shark fishing expedition with Blais, the singing shark caller from Tembin Village. Together the try to lure sharks with Blais's unique repertory of shark-calling songs.

Brazil: Lucy Duran visits the coastal city of Salvador da Bahia, the ancient capital of the Camdomblé religion. This is the religion that uses old African customs and languages - it's practised on the seashore looking across to Africa, and the sea and its shells are crucial to the liturgy, and its music too.

Solomon Islands: Andy Kershaw gets the gospel: the Deep Sea Canoe Movement is dedicated to keeping up continuous worship 24 hours a day on the paradise island of Malaita.

Producers: Roger Short and James Parkin.

SAT 21:00 Between the Ears (b00xbfr4)
Out Counting Sheep

Poet James Crowden experiences the wide range of sheep communication at lambing time in the dead of night, the interaction between ewe and lamb and birth itself, often in a sheep shed where up to 1,000 can be lambing at once. Also the talk between shepherds and their sheep and their interesting methods of counting sheep..

In the early 1980s James Crowden worked as shepherd. Some of his sheep kept escaping onto ground owned by the conductor and maestro John Eliot Gardiner. In the end John Eliot bought the sheep off James and at lambing time employed him to work as a night shepherd alongside his own shepherd Walt Pitman. It was whilst working here on the long dark nights in the lambing shed that James started to write his first book, Blood Earth and Medicine. To see a flock of 500 lambing is quite extraordinary and in the quiet of night the noises of sheep can be very illuminating - a strange language that works its way into the shed and us.

Interspersed with the sheep noises voices of shepherds talking to the sheep. Calling them, the wide variety of sheep counting systems up and down the country.

Yan Tan Tethera etc: links with old Celtic language systems + Anglo Saxon and Norse systems Wonderful variations from Rathmell to Teesdale. Also modern sheep countings shearing by the score and the sheep terms themselves gimmer, hogget, tup, ram, shearling, yo, ewe, teg, chilver, grass ewe, draft ewe, suck lamb, weather.

SUN 00:00 The Early Music Show (b00smnw7)
Mariane von Ziegler

Catherine Bott examines JS Bach's cantata collaboration with authoress Mariane von Ziegler - a unique relationship which, as Mark A Peters in his new book about the poetess argues, brought a "woman's voice to Baroque Music".

In establishing his Protestant Church, Martin Luther had been very specific about the role of women - there wasn't one. It is all the more extraordinary then, that JS Bach, a devout Lutheran, and Cantor at one of the church's most prestigious institutions, St Thomas's in Leipzig, should have undertaken a collaboration with a local authoress for a series of weekly cantatas for use in the liturgy, bringing a woman's interpretation of the biblical texts into the heart of the church service.

Mariane von Ziegler was a local poet who felt passionately for the intellectual rights of women. She would eventually emerge as Germany's first female Poet Laureate. Her cantata texts arguably inspired Bach to a different pattern of cantata writing. Together, in 1725, they created a sequence of nine new cantatas for St Thomas's.

In this programme Catherine Bott, looks back on the life and career of Mariane, considering her achievement alongside a rich selection of music drawn from the Bach/von Ziegler collaboration.

Charles and Mary

Carlo Gebler's new play especially written for Radio 3 dramatizes the extraordinary relationship between brother and sister, Charles and Mary Lamb, the writers of 'The Tales Of Shakespeare' (1807), the seminal children's introduction to Shakespeare, which is still in print.

What is less well known are the tragic circumstances, domestic and personal, behind the partnership of Charles and Mary. The Lamb family were London born and bred, bohemian and penniless. A combination of poverty and stress drove Mary insane and she committed a shocking crime. Charles saved her from prison and promised he would always take care of her. Mary was never 'sane' again but during the writing of 'The Tales' alongside her brother she was at her sanest. Literary production gave order and structure to her life. The main essence of this play explores the connection between literary creativity and mental equilibrium.

Carlo Gebler is an experienced novelist and playwright. His novels include ' The Eleventh Summer', 'The Cure' and 'How To Murder A Man'. His plays include an Irish version of 'The Dance Of Death', 10 Rounds ( both at The Tricycle London). He has co- written with Patrick Maguire, 'My Father's Watch- The Story Of A Child Prisoner In The 70s' and has taught creative writing in Northern Ireland prisons for many years.

The leading part of Mary Lamb is played by Lia Williams (Oleanna at The Royal Court, Rosalind in 'As You like It' at the RSC, BAFTA Best Actress for the tv production, 'May 33', 'Earthquakes In London' at The National Theatre).

Charles Lamb is Paul Rhys (films: 'Chaplin' and 'Vincent And Theo' as well as playing Hamlet at The Young Vic, and in Tom Stoppard's 'Invention of Love' at The National Theatre)

They are supported by a strong cast which includes Anna Carteret ( tvs 'Juliet Bravo' and 'Peak Practice' as well as 'Burnt By Sun', 'Never So Good' etc at The National Theatre), Dudley Sutton ( Ken Russell's 'The Devils', tvs' Lovejoy'), Mark Bazeley ( 'The Special Relationship', 'The Damned United', 'The Queen' (tv/film), 'The Seagull' ( National Theatre) 'Death Of A Salesman' and 'Suddenly Last Summer' (West End), Marcella Riordan ( Sony BBC Radio Best Actress Award ) and distinguished radio rep actors Christine Kavanagh and Sam Dale.

China's Museum-Building Boom

Isabel Hilton reports from China on the recent boom in museum building and on a growing interest in contemporary history. As people make more money and find more leisure time so China's cities have hurried to build more museums - a dramatic turnaround over the past 30 years. History itself is becoming the subject of a new breed of museums around the country, many of them privately owned. But what sort of history is being told here?
Isabel visits one of the world's most ambitious new museums, a huge cluster of museums built on a former army base in Sichuan by a local millionaire, Fan Jianchuan. Here some of the big topics of the 20th Century are up for re-evaluation including some, like the Cultural Revolution, that were previously considered highly sensitive. Isabel describes the impact of the 8-10 million objects from China's recent troubled past that are going on display in Sichuan and considers China's shifting relationship with its history and the way that it is displayed, taught and remembered in the popular imagination.

Producer: Anthony Denselow

SUN 22:15 Words and Music (b00xbhf0)
Travellers' Tales

In this edition of Words and Music, the readers Stella Gonet and Nicholas Farrell set sail on a sea of tall tales told by travellers.

Since the ancient Greek poet Homer hailed the exploits of Odysseus there has been an appetite for the true, almost true and downright fabricated stories of travellers: their adventures, the strange sights they saw and the creatures they sometimes loved and left behind. These tales are reflected in from Debussy, Telemann, Rimsky-Korsakov and the Tiger Lillies with words by Sir John Mandeville, Alfred Lord Tennyson and Margaret Attwood.

Producer: Natalie Steed.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00kh2g4)
Sibelius - The Rest is Silence? (The Years 1925-1957)

Episode 1

In the late 1920s, at the very height of his powers, Jean Sibelius abruptly and enigmatically put down his pen.For three decades until his death in 1957 at the age of 91, he was to produce virtually no new work - living out the rest of his life shrouded in silent mystery in the depths of the forests, north of Helsinki.

Or did he? In this week's Composer Of The Week, Donald MacLeod explores and explodes the mythology cloaking the last decades of Sibelius' life.a period not quite as 'silent' as legend might have us believe.

Today's episode outlines the background behind Sibelius' last, and perhaps greatest, major orchestral work, his extraordinary, terrifying tone poem Tapiola - as well as an unexpected pair of solemn and reverent church antiphons.not at all what you might expect from this master of orchestral colour.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00xj4tl)
Ulster Orchestra

Episode 1

For many centuries, women composers and performers were kept from public view. Tradition deemed it only proper that females confine themselves to the domestic arts and leave the concert hall to the men. Considered a novelty, women's music might be heard at best in drawing rooms and recital parlours.

In this week's Afternoon on 3, Katie Derham showcases some of the works which found their way into the repertoire, including those by Clara Schumann and Germaine Tailleferre. She'll be launching the week with a piece by leading Northern Ireland composer Elaine Agnew, written in 1994.

MON 21:15 Night Waves (b00xbjvy)
Rudyard Kipling, Dambisa Moyo, Neds, Evgeny Morozov

Night Waves marks the 75th Anniversary of the death of Rudyard Kipling. The first writer in the English language to win the Nobel Prize, and still its youngest ever recipient, Kipling is known for his celebration of India and his tales for children, such as The Jungle book and Kim. Yet although his poem If was recently voted the nation's favourite, Kipling is also an author who inspires passionate criticism - whose reputation has suffered due to his association with Imperialism. Matthew Sweet debates Kipling's place in literary history with the poet Tom Paulin, Kipling expert Daniel Karlin and the children's writer Jamila Gavin.

A leading economist claims the West is squandering its power through flawed economic policies, and that the US is on its way to becoming a weak socialist state. Dambisa Moyo calls for radical solutions to stop the West's political decline, and argues her case with Prospect editor Bronwen Maddox.

The actor and director Peter Mullan talks about his award-winning film Neds, a coming of age drama set in 1970s Glasgow, based on Mullan's own childhood.

And is the internet actually working against our freedom? Evgeny Morozov warns that the web is failing to protect people's rights and is being used to help authoritarian regimes. Have we misplaced our faith in the net?

This concert brings them together for the first time. Recorded at Kings Place during the London Jazz Festival 2010

Also in the programme, The Bad Plus pianist, Ethan Iverson, talks to the composer Henry Threadgill in a rare interview looking back on his influential group Air.

Episode 2

The years 1926-7 saw farewells to two of the greatest preoccupations of Sibelius' career. The cantata Väinön Virsi marked the end of the composer's lifelong obsession with the Kalevala, his nation's epic collection of ancient poems, chants and ballads.

Meanwhile, as one newspaper proclaimed: "Sibelius and Shakespeare, two geniuses, have found each other". Donald Macleod introduces an extended performance of Sibelius' Prelude and Suites of incidental music composed for a performance of The Tempest in 1926 - the last of no fewer than 11 theatre music works, spanning the composer's career.

20th Century British sculpture; Wilbert Rideau; Black Swan; Nina Raine interview

Anne McElvoy discusses a major exhibition of Modern British sculpture which opens at the Royal Academy of Arts with art critic Sarah Kent and sculptor Philip King. It's the Royal Academy's first exhibition in thirty years to examine British sculpture of the twentieth century, exploring how Britain's links with its Empire, continental Europe and the United States helped shape the art. It includes work by Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Damien Hirst and Anthony Caro.

Philip King also has his own exhibition at the Flowers Gallery in London

Anne meets a former deathrow inmate, Wilbert Rideau, who was sentenced to death in 1961 age 19 and is now an award-winning journalist and writer. Rideau's memoir, In the Place of Justice, charts his journey from bank robberies and murder, through decades of confinement and racial politics, to success as editor of the prison magazine The Angolite, which became the first American prison magazine to publish uncensored news.

Anne Karpf gives her verdict on the hotly anticipated film Black Swan - a dark psychological thriller which stars Natalie Portman as a dancer competing for the lead role in Swan Lake.

And Anne also talks to the writer Nina Raine, one of the UK's most exciting young playwrights, whose new play for the Hampstead Theatre, Tiger Country, is set in a busy hospital ward. Raine examines the ethical decisions made everyday in the NHS, and the external issues that influence them.

The daughter of the poet Craig Raine, Nina Raine's previous two plays have been critically lauded and she recently won the Evening Standard award for Most Promising Playwright.

Producer: Gavin Heard.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00kh462)
Sibelius - The Rest is Silence? (The Years 1925-1957)

Episode 3

In today's episode, Donald Macleod untangles the full, tragic saga of Sibelius' Eighth Symphony - from its initial conception, through the composer's years of tortuous evasions, mysterious allusions and lacerating self-criticism.tantalising periods of hope (as recorded in the composer's diary).and the work's final, devastating annihilation for all time.

We'll hear a series of chamber works written almost as a pressure release (or calculated avoidance?), as Sibelius struggled painfully with his magnum opus that never was.as well as a vintage 1933 performance of the composer's Seventh Symphony, conducted by a man who dreamed of giving the premiere of its successor: Serge Koussevitsky.

WED 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00xfgmp)
Ulster Orchestra

Episode 3

For many centuries, women composers and performers were kept from public view. Tradition deemed it only proper that females confine themselves to the domestic arts and leave the concert hall to the men. Considered a novelty, women's music might be heard at best in drawing rooms and recital parlours.

In today's Afternoon on 3, Katie Derham showcases some of the works which found their way into the repertoire, including those by Fanny Mendelssohn, Amy Beach and Northern Ireland composer Joan Trimble who died in 2000: together with some of the finest Ulster Orchestra performances from the last year.

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00xj0s8)
National Youth Orchestra - Prokofiev, Berg, Liszt, Janacek

Presented by Martin Handley.

It has been called "the most uplifting orchestra in the world" and the 170 strong National Youth Orchestra, newly recruited from across the country in the Autumn, welcomes in the New Year under the baton of Kristjan Järvi with a thrilling programme of orchestral showpieces.

Prokofiev's lavishly scored Scythian Suite shows off the size and range of the orchestra, while violinist and former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Tai Murray is the soloist in Berg's devastating Concerto dedicated to 'the memory of an angel.'

By contrast, Liszt dedicates his evocative piano concerto to death itself with its variations on the Dies Irae, but the mood lifts for the finale as Janacek acclaims 'the contemporary free man, his spiritual beauty and joy, his strength, courage and determination to fight for victory.'

Prokofiev: Scythian Suite
Berg: Violin Concerto
Liszt: Totentanz
Janácek: Sinfonietta

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00xfg3m)
Mary Midgley, Havi Carel

Two interviews with eminent philosophers recorded at November's Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Philip Dodd talks to the veteran philosopher Mary Midgley in her adopted town of Newcastle-Gateshead. At 91 years old, Mary Midgley remains one of the most combative and forthright minds in Britain today. Incredibly, she did not publish her first book until she was in her late 50s, yet has gone on to become one of the country's most prominent moral philosophers. She belongs to the high-achieving group of female philosophers like Iris Murdoch and Mary Warnock who were educated at Oxford during the war, when most men were away with the war effort.

Despite being a late developer Midgley has a wide-ranging impact. Most famously, she has been a strong critic of science's claim to answer all the most important questions about existence. In a well-known bad-tempered incident she took issue with Richard Dawkins. In this extended and wide-ranging interview she looks back at her long career with Night Waves presenter Philip Dodd and talks about science, religion, the Gaia theory, maturity and the dangers of specialism.

Also in the programme, Tom Shakespeare talks to Havi Carel. Diagnosed with a serious illness a few years ago at the age of thirty five she now explores how philosophy can help us understand illness, well being and happiness - and the surprising positive side of ill health.

Producer: Fiona McLean.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00kh4f8)
Sibelius - The Rest is Silence? (The Years 1925-1957)

Episode 4

In today's episode, Donald Macleod introduces the only existing recording of Sibelius conducting - a colourful rendition of his own Andante Festivo on New Year's Day, 1939.

We'll also hear the extraordinary Funeral Music for organ, written after the death of one of his greatest friends, the painter Akseli Gallén-Kallela in 1931 - and usually considered his last work. Sibelius, by now wracked by writer's block over the Eighth Symphony, tried his hardest to wriggle out of his commitment to mark his friend's passing in music. But, unable to escape, he produced a bizarre, otherworldly soundworld.like nothing he'd ever written before.

So then: his last original work? Not quite. Donald explores the extraordinary story of Sibelius' music for the Freemasons.and we'll hear two brief pieces, apparently written in a single, fevered night in 1946 - the first new pieces for some 15 years, and the last Sibelius was to ever let see light of day.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00xfgls)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Rossini - Il barbiere di Siviglia

Katie Derham introduces the Los Angeles Opera production of Rossini's The Barber of Seville.

From the moment of its premiere in Rome in 1816, The Barber of Seville became Rossini's most popular opera. Based on the first play of the trilogy by Pierre Beaumarchais, it forms a prequel to Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, which takes the second play as its plot.

The two-act comic opera was written at lightning speed, with over 600 pages of manuscript produced in less than two weeks. Admittedly Rossini drew on music from earlier operas - most notably the overture borrowed from his 'Aureliano in Palmira', the premiere of which was a total fiasco.

The score is pacy and melodically charming, with an abundance of musical ideas and comical scenes as Figaro helps Count Almaviva win the hand of the lovely Rosina. But first the Count and his trusty barber must stop her guardian, Doctor Bartolo, from marrying her himself. The most celebrated moments include Figaro's aria 'Largo al factotum', Rosina's aria 'Una voce poco fa' and their duet 'Dunque io son' (Act I, Scene II).

For Los Angeles Opera's production of this masterpiece, the company's chorus and orchestra are joined by a stellar line-up of soloists - including Peruvian tenor Juan Diego Florez as the Count, American baritone Nathan Gunn as the resourceful barber and American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato as the young maiden Rosina - under the baton of Michele Mariotti.

Mongolia: Lucy Duran travels deep into the Gobi desert, sets up a recording studio in a ger (traditional Mongolian tent, known in Russia as a yurt) and records various styles of desert song, including the extraordinary two-tone throat singing. Plus there are songs of Holy Mountains in one of the remostest parts of the Gobi desert, and a young artist from Ulaanbaatar who combines throat singing with beat-boxing.

Algeria: Andy Kershaw travels to the far south of Algeria and the small town of Djanet. He marvels at the beauty of this vast desert and listens to music inspired by the Sahara. He meets and records the Bali family and finds them mourning the recent death of their father - who drowned in the desert.

Key moments for the series include a traditional head-hunting song from New Ireland in Papua New Guinea; the mighty voice of Greenland's greatest singer; yodelling in the Swiss Alps; rapping in Cambodia; an Inuit throat-singing duet, recorded by the frozen Arctic Sea; and the secret songs of Burma recorded in the jungle on the border with Thailand.

Ulster Orchestra

Episode 4

For many centuries, women composers and performers were kept from public view. Tradition deemed it only proper that females confine themselves to the domestic arts and leave the concert hall to the men. Considered a novelty, women's music might be heard at best in drawing rooms and recital parlours.

In today's Afternoon on 3, Katie Derham showcases the talents of Enniskerry-born Ina Boyle, in the premiere recording of her rediscovered Violin Concerto, written in 1935: together with some of the finest Ulster Orchestra performances from the last year.

Music at Crystal Palace

Speaking with experts Steve Grindlay and Sarah Lenton we learn more about how the Crystal Palace affected the development of our modern understanding of concert etiquette, orchestral management and the music we now regard as 'mainstream' repertoire.

Producer Claire Wass.
