SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b00y225x)
Nights in a Divided Spain

Thoughts of Spanish music mostly conjure up images of exoticism or flamenco, frequently written by composers from outside Spain itself. But within Spain a national music was flourishing at the start of the 20th century, with Manuel de Falla leading the way. Dermot Clinch explores the meaning of 'Spanishness' for native composers such as Falla, Joaquin Rodrigo and Roberto Gerhard (later exiled in England), and looks at their music against the backdrop of the political and cultural upheavals of the 1930s and 40s: the creation of the Republic followed by the Nationalist uprising, the ensuing Civil War and the subsequent regime of General Franco.

With contributions from the musicologists Carol Hess, Graham Wade and Samuel Llano and from the historian Paul Preston, along with the insider's viewpoint from Madrid with Cecilia Rodrigo, daughter of the composer and keeper of his memory and archive.


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00y225z)
Lully's Bellerophon

Catherine Bott samples Lully's opera "Bellérophon" with Christophe Rousset and his group Les Talens Lyriques who recently gave the first performance in modern times of this hugely successful tragedie en lyrique by Lully, in the sumptuous Opera Royal at Versailles, after Rousset's discovery of missing pages of the score in a bookshop in Paris. Rousset talks about his find, and about the qualities that make Lully's opera stand out as a masterpiece.

Lully was one of opera's most significant figures and this opera was one of his most successful. It originally ran for nine months when it was given at the Palais Royal on 31st January 1697. But non-French speaking audiences often encounter difficulties appreciating Lully's dramatic style and some of the subtleties of his declamatory word setting. Rousset offers some insights as to why these pioneering and influential works are worth wider appreciation.

The programme includes comments from Rousset and from Bellérophon himself - tenor Cyril Auvity - as well as highlights from the Versailles performance.

Libretto by Thomas Corneille.

Recorded in the Opera Royal of the Chateau de Versailles, France, and featuring:

Cyril Auvity, Bellérophon
Céline Scheen, Philonoé
Ingrid Perruche, Sténobeé
Jennifer Borghi, Argie/Pallas
Evgeniy Alexiev, Pan/Jobate (Le Roy)
Jean Teitgen, Apollon/Amisodar
Robert Getchell, Bacchis/La Pythie

With the Chamber Choir of Namur and Les Talens Lyriques directed by Christophe Rousset.

Music played:

1. Overture

2. Prologue - Chorus: "Chantons le plus grand mortels"

3. Act 1 Scene 5 - Chorus of Amozones & Soloymes: "Faisons cesser nos alarmes"

4. Act 2 Scene 6 - Scene with Amisodar and Chorus of Magiciens: "Que ce jardin se change"

5. Act 2 Scene 2 - Duet for Bellérophon and Philonoé: "Que tout parle, a l'envy"

6. Act 3 Scene 5 - Sacrificial scene: "Le malheur qui nous accable"

7. Act 2 Scene 3: Bellérophon and Stenobeé: "Ma présence ici te fait peine"

This Isn't Romance

In-Sook Chappell's moving story of two children who lose one another in early childhood, but find one another again as lonely adults in the heart of the city of Seoul, South Korea.

Cast:
Miso Blake ..... Jennifer Lim
Han ..... Mo Zainal
Jack ..... Matthew Marsh
Naomi/Miss Han ..... Sonnie Brown
Bunny/Waitress ..... Elizabeth Tan
Ajossi ..... Jay Lim

Director Lisa Goldman

In-Sook Chappell says:
"This story addresses what faces immigrants and asylum seekers when they return to the country of their birth. I was born in Korea and adopted into an English family. The inspiration for the play came on a visit back to Seoul. Unable to speak Korean, I was a foreigner in the country I was born in. I had lost my language, my country and my family. The sound of Korean upset me, stirred feelings I had as a baby that I'd forgotten. I met a lot of adoptees searching for their biological families, only communicating with them through an interpreter. I decided not to track down my family. Instead I spoke to some who had, then I imagined and wrote this play. On a visit to an orphanage, I met a little boy aged 4 who had been left on the street by his parents. If I had been in a better financial situation I would have adopted him. He was the starting point for Han. Growing up in England I always thought; What if I had stayed in Korea, grown up in an orphanage; would I have ended up a teenage prostitute or a factory worker? I had a strong sense of guilt for living a privileged life in England. In cross-cultural adoption, we rarely talk about what happens when the children grow up, what they lose as well as gain. The sounds of this play evoke emotions and memories, a sense of dislocation, of being thrown into another world; the alienation of hearing another language clearly spoken with passion and love, but incomprehensible and impossible to respond to.".

In 1998 he became the founder chairman of HMV Media Group, which merged Waterstones and HMV. He has also served on the boards of many arts organizations, including the LPO, The Elgar Foundation, the Academy of Ancient Music, and the Library of King's College, London.

His musical enthusiasms, which he discusses with Michael Berkeley, focus on vocal music. They embrace Elgar's Sea Pictures sung by Janet Baker, an artist he particularly admires; a carol by Elizabeth Poston (which he loves equally for its words and music) sung by the choir of King's College Cambridge;Doretta's Song from Puccini's 'La rondine', sung by Angela Gheorghiu; the famous Adagietto from Mahler's Fifth Symphony, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Klaus Tennstedt, a conductor whom Tim Waterstone considers one of the greatest of his time; the Pie Jesu from Faure's Requiem; Renee Fleming singing 'Im Abendrot', one of Richard Strauss's Four Last Songs; and Jerome Kern's 'The Way You Look Tonight' sung by Fred Astaire - Tim Waterstone and his wife like to relax by listening to musicals from the golden era.

Dunsinane

A thrilling sequel to Shakespeare's Macbeth by the award-winning playwright David Greig

Macbeth is dead. Under cover of night, an English army has swept through the landscape, killed the tyrant and taken the seat of power.

Attempting to restore peace and put in place a new ruler, the commanding officer is beset by a brutal guerrilla uprising and simmering discontent amongst his own inexperienced troops. Struggling to grasp the alien customs and politics of this harsh country, he finds himself drawn towards the tyrant's powerful widow in search of someone to share his burden of responsibility. Increasingly isolated from his own men and Scottish allies alike, his efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control.

David Greig's exhilarating play is a vision of one man's attempt to restore peace in a country ravaged by war.

SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature (b00y233w)
Elizabeth Scott, Architect

The forgotten story of Elisabeth Scott, the young female architect who, in 1928, beat over seventy contenders in an international competition to design the first Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford upon Avon at a time when women her age didn't even have the vote.

As the newly refurbished Royal Shakespeare Theatre prepares to launch its opening production this coming April, Gillian Darley goes in search of the original architect, Elisabeth Scott, and pieces together her story.

Elisabeth Scott was the first British woman architect ever to win a major international competition. When her design was chosen for the new theatre - the previous one had been largely destroyed in a fire - her name was on the front pages of newspapers across the country - "Girl Architect Beats Men" is just one patronising example - but she is now largely overlooked. Gilllian Darley seeks out architectural experts, feminist writers and elderly female architects to find out about the first generation of women architects. After considerable research, she finds an elderly relative and a former colleague of Scott's who help her paint a vivd and poignant portrait of an architect whose final projects included a small civic theatre at the end of Bournemouth pier though her legacy is still to be seen on the banks of the Avon.

Producer: Beaty Rubens.


SUN 22:15 Words and Music (b00y2375)
Last Things

An edition of Words and Music about endings with readers Tim Pigott-Smith and Katherine Parkinson.

The subjects include last love and its consolations; death and what may follow; sound fading into silence and Heaven and Hell. These pieces are often the last words of a writer or a composer's last works and can act as a wry counterpoint, or even a kind of swansong.

So Schubert's 'String Quintet' sits next to John Updike's birthday meditations shortly before his death in 2009; Mozart's 'Requiem' jostles up against the beautiful but bleached words of the narrator in Paul Auster's apocalyptic novel 'In the Country of Last Things'; and The Doors' psychedelic anthem, 'The End', underpins Michael Herr's memories of Vietnam and his eerie vision of a soul slowly unravelling like a parachute.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


SUN 23:30 Jazz Line-Up (b00y237h)
Billy Jenkins

Billy Jenkins has become something of a cult figure in the jazz world yet his musical style and personality is something of an enigma.

Notably, the nephew of David Jenkins, former outspoken Bishop of Durham, Claire explores his humanist calling and the influences and contrasts on his music and stage persona.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00y23m4)
Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975): Young Dmitri...and Friends

Nikolai Roslavets

Donald Macleod explores Shostakovich's brilliant youth - and the work of five extraordinary lost musical souls - amidst the turmoil and extraordinary originality of 1920s Russia.

---

We're familiar with the image of Dmitri Shostakovich the doomed, tragic hero - his epic symphonies and cryptic musical messages battling a totalitarian regime.

Yet...once upon a time, as a young man, he was a brilliant, fearless avant-garde composer - just one of a slew of daringly original musical voices in what was perhaps the world's most heady and exciting artistic melting pot at the time: 1920s Soviet Russia.

This was not - yet - a time of purges and gulags, spies and Socialist Realism. Instead, artists, film-makers and composers were emboldened by the promise of a bright new Soviet future - composing radically original works that made the country a crucible of new, visionary art and music.

It was not to last. This week, Donald Macleod looks at "young Dmitri"'s dazzling work of the 1920s - a period of musical adventurousness and biting musical wit that he would never be allowed to show again. Highlights include excerpts from his surreal opera "The Nose", his film music to "The New Babylon" and his incidental music to the avant-garde play, "The Bedbug".

He also re-evaluates Shostakovich's little-played Second and Third Symphonies (with a rare, complete performance of each work). He reveals that despite their much-derided choral finales - praising the Soviet way - the symphonies are full of extraordinary musical daring - audacity that the composer would never be allowed to attempt again.

In each of the week's programmes he pairs Shostakovich's music with a work by a contemporary from the 1920s. You're unlikely to hear the music of Gavri'il Popov, Alexei Zhivotov, Nikolai Roslavets, Alexander Mosolov and Vladimir Deshevov in a concert hall near you anytime soon. Yet during this remarkable burst of creativity in the 1920s, these composers composed works that still sound extraordinary even today.

For once, these composers are given their moment in the sun...as Donald Macleod explains how unlike the great survivor Shostakovich, their musical promise was to be cruelly - and tragically - snuffed out.

In Monday's episode, Donald Macleod looks as Shostakovich's very earliest years, introducing his opus 1, written as a precocious 13 year old, as well as two dreamy, sensuous poems for piano by his contemporary - and would-be musical revolutionary - Nikolai Roslavets.

MON 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00y23zy)
Bournemouth SO - Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev

Presented by Catherine Bott

Yan Pascal Tortelier conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in "Dreaming by the Fireside" by Strauss, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with James Ehnes and Romeo and Juliet by Prokofiev.

Dreaming by the Fireside is a symphonic interlude from Strauss' comic opera Intermezzo, in which the heroine sits alone by her fireplace, day-dreaming of a lover. Her romantic fantasy is mingled with melancholy.

Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto belongs to that illustrious group of masterpieces that were savaged by uncomprehending critics at their premieres: today, this work holds an outstanding place among all violin concertos.

Shakespeare's timeless tragedy of the "star-cross'd lovers" and their warring families has stirred the imagination of countless composers. Prokofiev's sumptuous ballet is one of the most ravishing musical versions of the story.

MON 21:15 Night Waves (b00y2400)
India, Boardwalk Empire, Children's Hour, Stefan Collini

Does the West understand India? A new book by historian Patrick French, India: A Portrait, argues that India today is more alien to the West than it has been for centuries. Even though one of David Cameron's first acts as Prime Minister was to visit the subcontinent, has the UK got India severely wrong and are we blinkered by our colonial past? Rana Mitter, Patrick French and Faisal Devji discuss India's transformation from socialist economy to capitalist powerhouse and explore how we should view the emerging superpower.

Boardwalk Empire is the latest high profile drama series from American cable network HBO. Set in the prohibition era, it follows the fortunes of a corrupt political figure in Atlantic City. Directed by Martin Scorsese, the drama recently triumphed at the Golden Globes. As it heads for British screens, Rana reviews Boardwalk Empire with Bonnie Greer.

Keira Knightley and Mad Men actress Elizabeth Moss are starring in a new production of Lillian Hellman's 1934 play The Children's Hour, a portrayal of two boarding school teachers accused of having a lesbian affair. Rana discusses the controversy which dogged Hellman's career, including her support for Stalin, and the scandal caused by The Children's Hour.

And do we take offence too easily? In his book That's Offensive! Criticism, Identity, Respect Professor Stefan Collini argues that it's becoming increasingly common to claim that the criticism of someone else's beliefs is offensive. But should our society be encouraging rather than stifling criticism?

Producer: Georgia Mann.

MON 23:00 The Essay (b00y2402)
Wild Things

The Deer

When newspapers last year reported a killing of a stag in Exmoor, there were fierce reactions of horror. Even though deer can cause huge damage to forests, people are transfixed by their beauty and majesty. We have read about them in literature and seen haunting images of Bambi in the cinema. They represent something majestic, yet vulnerable and are a unique part of the British landscape.
The poet and writer Ruth Padel begins a series of Essays exploring our reactions to 5 British wild animals, by investigating how our reactions to deer have been subconsciously shaped by centuries of folklore, literature and biology. She charts the history of the deer's links with royalty, traces the evolution of the different species in this country and explores the potency of the image of antlers.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.


MON 23:15 Jazz on 3 (b00y2404)
Orchestre National de Jazz, UK Jazz Orchestra

Jez Nelson presents France's Orchestre National De Jazz in collaboration with drummer and composer John Hollenbeck of the Claudia Quartet. Under the leadership of its conductor Daniel Yvinec, the ONJ have made a name for themselves for their forward looking and innovative approach to the big band format. Following their acclaimed collaboration with UK songwriter Robert Wyatt, their latest project brings them together with The Claudia Quintet's John Hollenbeck, one of the most influential composers currently working in jazz. With the title Shut Up And Dance, the concert takes as its theme the way music and movement combine, "via pygmy music, Gnawa trance and Duke Ellington swing". Recorded at London Jazz Festival 2010. Also in the programme Jez Nelson takes a look at the debate on whether the UK should have its own national jazz orchestra.

Vladimir Deshevov

Donald Macleod explores Shostakovich's brilliant youth - and the work of five extraordinary lost musical souls - amidst the turmoil and extraordinary originality of 1920s Russia.

Tuesday sees Donald Macleod presenting a complete performance of perhaps Shostakovich's least-played symphony, his Second - complete with tubthumping choral finale in praise of the Revolution. Yet this is no potboiler...but one of the most daringly original works of the early 20th century. The episode opens with a brutal miniature for piano by Shostakovich's forgotten contemporary, Vladimir Deshevov, evoking the clangourous, steely grind of life in industrial Russia.

Vladimir Jurowski conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in music by Eötvös, Liszt's Piano Concerto No 2 with Alexander Markovich, and Zemlinsky's Lyric Symphony.
With Liszt's thunderous piano concertos the age of the virtuoso was born, a fusion of Beethoven's single-mindedness and Paganini's breathtaking virtuosity. Zemlinsky's setting of Hindu poetry by Rabindranath Tagore is an alluring, mysterious masterpiece of late Romanticism in which soprano and baritone drape alternate verses over a kaleidoscopic orchestra.

The Tenth Parallel, Mike Figgis, Wilful Blindness, Climate Change Plays

The tenth parallel - the line of latitude 700 miles north of the equator - is called by some a geographical and ideological frontline where Christianity and Islam meet. Along the line from Nigeria to the Philippines live more than half the world's Muslims, and sixty percent of the world's Christians.

A review of English National Opera's new production of Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia, with which film director Mike Figgis is making his opera directing debut.

Business woman and writer Margaret Heffernan joins Anne to discuss her new book examining the phenomenon of 'wilful blindness'. She argues that the biggest threats and dangers we face are the ones we don't see - not because they're secret or invisible, but because we're wilfully blind. Heffernan examines the phenomenon and traces its imprint in our private and working lives, and within governments, and asks: what makes us prefer ignorance?

The investigative journalist Eliza Griswold has spent seven years travelling the tenth parallel and joins Anne McElvoy to discuss the role religion plays in the region's struggles over resources and political power. She looks at why, on both sides of the line, people are experiencing a dramatic reawakening of faith, and how encounters between the two religions are shaping the future of global politics.

Greenland at the National Theatre, and The Heretic at The Royal Court; two new plays staging the controversies surrounding the subject of climate change. Anne McElvoy is joined by members of the creative team behind Greenland, one of its four writers Matt Charman and dramaturg Ben Power, to talk about this current vogue for putting the drama of the planet's fate centre stage.

In the second of her series of Essays considering our responses to the creatures which make up the British landscape, the writer and poet Ruth Padel turns her attention to the robin. She explores why our feelings on seeing their red breasts in winter have grown so strong and finds out that religious symbolism has played a large part. She charts the history of the bird in Britain and traces the ways it has been represented in literature from Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" to Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Secret Garden". How has this affected the way we perceive it?

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00y2687)
Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975): Young Dmitri...and Friends

Alexander Mosolov

Donald Macleod explores Shostakovich's brilliant youth - and the work of five extraordinary lost musical souls - amidst the turmoil and extraordinary originality of 1920s Russia.

Wednesday's programme features Shostakovich at his zaniest - and perhaps most brilliantly original. After two scurrilous arrangements of Scarlatti, Donald Macleod presents excerpts from Shostakovich's first opera, "The Nose", a surreal tale of nasal amputation and Kafkaesque bureaucracy.

The programme finishes with a masterpiece not by Shostakovich, but by his contemporary Alexander Mosolov - a man who would later be the only major composer to be sent to the gulag. Mosolov's Piano Concerto no.1 is like no other in classical music - a bewildering procession of melodies and influences that mirrors the chaotic artistic melting-pot of 1920s Soviet Russia.

Mozart

Presented by Catherine Bott, live from the Barbican Hall.

Chief Conductor Jiri Belohlávek conducts Mahler's Sixth Symphony with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Lars Vogt joins them in Mozart's Piano Concerto No 16 in D major, K451.

Mahler's vast Sixth Symphony, first performed in 1906, is recognised today for its extraordinary insights into the human condition. The work comes to a climax with the 'hammer blows of fate' which seem to pre-figure tragic events in the composer's life. The concert opens with an exquisite but rarely performed piano concerto by Mozart, performed by master pianist Lars Vogt.

Zipper and His Father

"Why, I asked, was Arnold's older brother never photographed?

He was named Caesar. It seemed this name had proved a burden to the boy, had set him tasks for which he was not born. He had either to be a genius or a scoundrel. With a name like that who coulde ever satify his parents? "

Precisely. And when Herr Zipper, Caesar's father, decides that the boy must learn the violin all hell lets loose. The boy goes to lessons for two years before Herr Zipper makes a shocking discovery, which leads to family confrontation.

This extract from the author's famous novel about musical aspirations going comically
off course is read by Jonathan Firth.

The producer is Duncan Minshull.

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00y27dm)
Sebastian Faulks, Brighton Rock, Good Society, The Promise

Philip Dodd explores the history of the British novel with author Sebastian Faulks, who argues that literary criticism needs to focus less on writers and more on their characters. In a BBC 2 television series Faulks on Fiction, Faulks analyses works by authors from Daniel Defoe to Monica Ali, with a focus on four novelistic archetypes: the hero, the lover, the snob and the villain.

Juliet Gardiner reviews the new film version of Brighton Rock, based on Graham Greene's novel and starring Sam Riley as Pinkie, the role made famous by Richard Attenborough in the 1947 film. Although the novel and original film are both set in the thirties, director Rowan Joffe has moved the action forward to the sixties.

Should we aim for a Good Society rather than a Big Society? Philip is joined by leading political thinkers Phillip Blond and Maurice Glasman to discuss where we should go with ideas for restructuring Society. Phillip Blond is the "Red Tory" intellect behind much of David Cameron's Big Society, whereas Lord Glasman created the concept of "Blue Labour", which could provide the intellectual basis for future Labour plans.

Plus director Peter Kosminsky on his drama The Promise, which tells the story of British soldiers stationed in Palestine during the Mandate period 1945-1948.

WED 23:00 The Essay (b00y27mb)
Wild Things

The Badger

In the third of her Essays which explore our responses to creatures in our landscape, the poet and writer Ruth Padel turns her attention to the badger. In children's stories the badger is usually a source of wisdom and has connections with morality- think of "The Wind in the Willows" and Narnia. Badgers have also acquired an extra mystery by emerging at night. But in reality they provoke mixed reactions, with some people wanting to hunt them for sport and some farmers demanding the right to cull them to stop TB transmission to cattle. Drawing on history, literature and science, Ruth explores how our attitudes to badgers have been shaped through the centuries.

Producer: Emma Kingsley.

Alexei Zhivotov

Donald Macleod explores Shostakovich's brilliant youth - and the work of five extraordinary lost musical souls - amidst the turmoil and extraordinary originality of 1920s Russia.

Donald Macleod begins Thursday's programme with another dazzlingly witty arrangement - this time of a Broadway hit! - before introducing another 'black sheep' of the Shostakovich symphony family: his little-performed Third Symphony, complete with finale in praise of the Soviet revolutionary. His guest composer today is Alexei Zhivotov - a composer who barely registers in musical history - yet whose Fragments, Op.2, is one of the most original Russian chamber works of the 20th century.

Philharmonia - Bartok

Presented by Catherine Bott.

Esa-Pekka Salonen opens Infernal Dance, the Philharmonia's celebration of Bartok, with the choral tone poem Kossuth, Bartók's first major orchestral work. It celebrates the life of its eponymous hero, one of Hungary's most vivid national legends. The ballet-pantomime The Miraculous Mandarin, profoundly influenced by Stravinsky's Petrushka and Firebird, is raw, dangerous, exotic and elemental: frenzied music, percussive, sensuous and violent, telling a shocking story of desire and death. This evening's performance features the full ballet score, which is rarely performed.

For this major series to accompany BBC One's 'Human Planet', Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran go in search of music from some of the world's remotest locations.. This week: Jungles.

Solomon Islands: Andy teams up with musicians in Honiara, who use giant rainforest bamboo trees to give a monster bass sound to their songs.

Congo: Lucy presents a profile of the Mbendjele people of northern Congo, a pygmy hunter-gatherer group whose music echoes the sound of the forest that feeds them.

Burma: Andy visits the Thai town of Mae Sot on the border with Burma where he records musicians from one of the giant refugee camps there, meets a Burmese protest singer who has just finished a 10-year jail sentence, and drops in on the local Karen-rebel guerrilla centre disguised as a restaurant.

Producers Roger Short and James Parkin.

Wild Things

The Butterfly

From Meadowbrown to Painted Ladies, the allure of butterflies has traditionally been strong. We love their colours and exotic names and use them as images of freedom and fragility coupled with inner strength. But why do we respond to them in this way? In the fourth of her series of Essays looking at creatures in the British landscape, the poet and writer Ruth Padel explores how our attitudes to the butterfly have been shaped and uncovers a host of associations that it has taken on in literature and science.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00y2811)
Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975): Young Dmitri...and Friends

Gavriil Popov

Donald Macleod explores Shostakovich's brilliant youth - and the work of five extraordinary lost musical souls - amidst the turmoil and extraordinary originality of 1920s Russia.

In the final episode of the week, Donald Macleod looks at how the musical freedoms of the 1920s were slowly and surely crushed by the totalitarian state...a time when Shostakovich, somewhat ironically, composed a new ballet entitled "The Golden Age"...as well as finishing off someone else's opera for them!

Donald's last 'guest composer' of the week is the long-forgotten contemporary of Shostakovich Gavri'il Popov, whose epic, kaleidoscopic First Symphony is perhaps the most original Russian work of the entire decade - and a lasting influence on later modernist composers like Schnittke.


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00y2819)
Belfast Festival 2010

The chariot

Benjamin Britten
Fish in the unruffled lakes
To lie flat on the back
Night covers up the rigid land
The sun shines down

Underneath the abject willow

Sergei Rachmaninov
