SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b00zddl7)
Al Murray

Al Murray is one of Britain's most successful comedians. Educated at Bedford School and Oxford University, he began to work in comedy in the 1990s, and created his best-known act, his alter-ego The Pub Landlord, in 1994. Five years later a show based round the Pub Landlord won the Perrier Award at Edinburgh, and Murray has been nominated several times for an Olivier Award. He has appeared at the Royal Variety Performance and has hosted Live at the Apollo on BBC1; his sitcom Time Gentlemen Please on Sky One has become a cult classic, and his series Al Murray's Multiple PersonalityDisorder on ITV1 saw him introduce a whole range of new characters.

Apart from his stand-up comedy routines, Al has recently presented Al Murray in Germany on BBC4, a historical series about the art and culture of Germany. He has also made The Road to Berlin, a documentary series about World War II for the Discovery channel.

Al played in his school orchestra, and several of his choices for Private Passions are linked to his experiences as a youthful percussionist. These include Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherezade, which he remembers playing on an orchestral tour to Paris; Orff's Carmina burana, and Nimrod, from Elgar's Enigma Variations, which reminds him of a particularly poignant moment. There's also music by Handel (the coronation anthem Zadok the Priest), a chorale from a Bach cantata which he heard sung by the Leipzig Thomanerchor, an excerpt from Philip Glass's Low Symphony, and Eric Coates's famous Dam Busters March.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00zddl9)
Bach's Greatest Enigma - The Mass in B minor

On April 10th 1859, a choral society in Leipzig, the Riedel-Verein, gave the probable premiere of a large-scale composition by Johann Sebastian Bach. Parts of it had been sung and played before but this is thought to have been the first performance of the whole thing, more than a century after Bach's death. The publisher of the first edition had proclaimed it as "the Greatest Work of Art of All Times and All Nations" and many people would agree with that assessment today, but it's still a musical and liturgical enigma. Why did a pious Protestant write a Catholic Mass? Was it meant to be performed all in one go? Catherine Bott explores Johann Sebastian Bach's greatest enigma: his Mass in B minor.

Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms

Tom Service, composer Julian Anderson and Stravinsky biographer Stephen Walsh examine the Symphony of Psalms with the BBC Singers and the BBCSO conducted by Michal Dworzynski.

Stravinsky composed his psalm settings in the years between the two World Wars, and they are one of the first musical expressions of his re-discovered Christian faith. The work has proved one of the composer's most succesful and influential pieces. Tom Service hosts a round table forum on the piece, examining its background and the ideas behind the music with illustrations and a complete performance given by the BBC Singers and BBC Symphony Orchestra.


SUN 18:30 Choir and Organ (b00zddlh)
Finnish Golden Age Choral Music

This week Aled Jones talks to Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, a leading figure on the Finnish choral scene. He's probably best known in the UK as a choral composer, in particular for his humorous take on Finnish folk music "Pseudo-Joik". In addition he's a choral singer, translator and expert on the history of Finnish choral music. He joins Aled to introduce a selection of the best from the Finnish romantics who took up Sibelius' mantle. The late nineteenth century was a rich period in Finland's choral development. The growth of nationalism not only saw Jean Sibelius produce choral music using Finnish texts but it also fostered the desire in succeeding generations to follow in his footsteps. Outside Finland, the domination of Sibelius' reputation has meant the work of these later Finnish romantics, among them Toivo Kuula, Leevi Madetoja and Selim Palmgren, has been rather unfairly neglected. Palmgren who was given the title the "Chopin of Scandinavia", is credited with bringing impressionism to Finland, while Kuula's original talent, cut short tragically by an early death, has been likened to that of Sibelius.

SUN 21:45 Sunday Feature (b00zddlm)
The Life and Afterlife of Wilhelm Reich

Matthew Sweet explores the life, ideas and impact of Wilhelm Reich, whose idea of sexual revolution helped shape the post-war world - but who died in an American prison in 1957, his books banned and burned.

In the 1930s, Reich fused the ideas of Freud and Marx to anatomise the Nazism that was taking over Germany.
He advanced the idea that ordinary Germans' appetite for Hitler's leadership had its roots not in 'national character' or economic troubles alone, but in the authoritarian nature of German families. Reich began to argue that sexual repression underpinned many social ills, and that the release of pent-up sexual energy would allow people to become freer, and lead to a transformation of society. He also developed Freud's therapy in a radical new direction, based on the idea that repression is found not just in the mind but the body, and should be tackled physically as well as verbally.

In 1939, Reich fled Europe for America, eventually establishing a base for his work in rural Maine - a place he called 'Orgonon'. Matthew visits the site, now a Museum dedicated to Reich's work, to find out how Reich developed his concept of 'orgone energy'.

In the 1950s, Reich's development of an 'orgone energy accumulator', and the hostile publicity it attracted, led to his pursuit by the US Food and Drug Administration. This ended in an extraordinary trial which was followed by Reich being sent to prison, where he died - and to his books being banned and incinerated.

Yet his influence in America, through such books as 'The Function of the Orgasm', had begun to spread among the avant-garde on both coasts. In the 1950s and 60s, his ideas had wide influence, on novelists like Norman Mailer and Saul Bellow and on feminists like Germaine Greer. As Greer tells Matthew, her hugely influential 1970 polemic, 'The Female Eunuch', was threaded through with "Reichian" ideas about the malign impact of authoritarian families and the importance of releasing frustrated, dammed-up energy.

And the British theatre critic and would-be sexual radical Kenneth Tynan, meanwhile, was very keen on Reich's ideas, to the point of writing much of a book about him. This was never published, but Matthew takes a look at a copy of the manuscript belonging to the Tynan family.

Presenter: Matthew Sweet
Producer: Phil Tinline.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00l8rsw)
Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971)

Looking West

From 1939 until his death in New York in 1971 Stravinsky made America his home. This week Donald Macleod explores this final chapter of the composer's life, looking at the impact his American experiences had on Stravinsky and his works. In the first programme, 'Looking West', Donald looks at Stravinsky's final years in Europe, when he was already composing works for American patrons, and leading a complicated private life, with his family ensconced in a grand chateau in South-Eastern France, and his mistress Vera in a Paris apartment. The tragic loss of his daughter, wife Katya and mother Anna within a few months in 1938 led him to feel that he no longer had ties to Paris, and he set sail for America in the autumn of 1939.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00zdfj0)
Florestan Trio

The Florestan Trio performs the third of Haydn's elegant piano trios dedicated to Princess Maria Anna, wife of his patron Prince Anton Esterházy. By contrast, Dvorak's F minor Trio is a stormy work, written shortly after the death of the composer's mother, and owing much to Brahms in its inspiration.

Presented by Louise Fryer

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b00zdfj2)
Beethoven Concertos

Episode 1

Over the next two weeks in Afternoon on 3 you can hear the BBC's orchestras playing all of Beethoven's concertos and symphonies. They start this week with the eight concertos: one for violin and five for piano, plus the 'triple concerto' for violin, cello, piano and orchestra; and the amazing Choral Fantasy for piano, chorus and orchestra - a performance from the opening concert of the new BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff a couple of years ago. The presenter is Penny Gore.

Our Thursday Opera Matinee is the third of Puccini's operatic triptych, Gianni Schicchi - you may have heard the first two in this San Francisco Opera production last week.

Thursday's programme also features a live concert by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, as well as the last of Beethoven's five piano concertos.

Then as a grand finale to the week, Louise Fryer presents a feast of musical humour - in Afternoon on 3's Red Nose Special, part of Radio 3's contribution to Red Nose Day.

There'll be a backbone (or should that be funny bone?) of pieces that tickle the fancy of Afternoon on 3 listeners - from musical jokes by Mozart and Haydn through Gilbert and Sullivan to Anna Russell, Flanders and Swann and Tom Lehrer.

Comedians will join Louise to pick their own classical favourites too - including Lenny Henry presenting his own recording of Prokofiev's 'Peter and the Wolf', and a mystery guest live in the studio.

The BBC's performing groups also have a funny turn: don't miss the BBC Symphony Orchestra tackling a few easy pieces - backwards - and jazz from the Welsh NOT NOW band, who fiddle with Sibelius in Bangor.

And at 4 o'clock it's over to the BBC's Maida Vale studios for the culmination of Radio 3's Red Nose Conducting Competition, as the lucky winner conducts the BBC Singers, live, in Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.

MON 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00zdfj6)
LSO - Messiaen, Bruckner

Presented by Catherine Bott.

Two monumental orchestral masterpieces by two deeply religious composers.
Bruckner died in 1896 leaving his Ninth Symphony unfinished: only in recent decades has the work's true originality emerged, as musicians return to the original manuscripts. The deeply religious composer dedicated the work to God, and its devotions fittingly end in mystery. Messiaen's monumental work (1965) also meditates on death and resurrection. He imagined it being played in 'vast spaces: churches, cathedrals, and even out of doors and on high mountains.'

Susannah Clapp will be reviewing the new play by writer and director Neil Labute, In a Forest Dark and Deep, which stars Matthew Fox and Olivia Williams as sparring siblings.

And Matthew Sweet will be asking if living in a city makes us greener, richer and happier as a new book by Harvard economist Edward Glaeser argues that cities are mankind's greatest achievement.

Producer: Eliane Glaser.

MON 23:00 The Essay (b00zdfjb)
The Book that Changed Me

Homage to Catalonia

Alan Johnston explains how "Homage to Catalonia" by George Orwell inspired him to become a journalist - and taught him some dark truths about politics. At one point Johnston looked to be destined for a career in town planning. But that all changed when he came across Orwell's book on the Spanish Civil War. "Homage to Catalonia" set Johnston off down a path that would take him to wars and upheaval in the Caucasus, Central Asia, and Afghanistan under the Taleban. He was on a journey that would eventually lead to his being kidnapped in Gaza.


MON 23:15 Jazz on 3 (b00zdfjd)
Anderson, Bennink, Glerum, Möbus, Van Kemenade

Jez Nelson presents a concert featuring the acclaimed Dutch absurdist drummer Han Bennink. Bennink is best known as one of the pioneers of European free music but is a master of all eras of jazz, also known for injecting his performances with moments of slapstick humour. Bennink is joined by an international line up of improvising heavyweights: Chicago-born trombonist Ray Anderson, guitarist Frank Möbus, bassist Ernst Glerum and Paul Van Kemenade on saxophone.

Plus, Fred Hersch talks about recovering from a coma and recording a new album, and Jez chats to Marcus O'Dair about the Finnish jazz scene.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Joby Waldman and Rebecca Aitchison.

TUE 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00zdh3q)
Philharmonia - Wagner, Liszt, Brahms

Presented by Catherine Bott.

The Philharmonia Orchestra performs a dramatic programme of key works by three great German Romantic composers, Wagner, Liszt and Brahms.
Brahms revered Beethoven and this admiration weighed so heavily on him that he struggled for decades with the idea of writing a symphony. Brahms himself declared that his First Symphony, from sketches to finishing touches, took 21 years to write (from 1855 to 1876). But although only politely received at its premiere it was soon being nicknamed 'Beethoven's Tenth'. Liszt's Second Piano Concerto had a similarly prolonged gestation, from 1839 to 1861. Cast in a single movement it is based on a single theme that is transformed throughout and assumes many varied characters.

Chemist Peter Atkins, author of 'On Being', discusses his exploration of the great questions of existence - is it science, rather than religion or philosophy, that has the capacity to tell us the most about the meaning of life? Philosopher Jonathan Ree joins the debate.

And as comedian Frank Skinner starts a new series of his topical chat show, Opinionated, Philip talks to him about the highs and lows of his comedy career.

Producer: Lisa Davis.

WED 14:15 Afternoon Concert (b00zdh7y)
Beethoven Concertos

Episode 3

Over the next two weeks in Afternoon on 3 you can hear the BBC's orchestras playing all of Beethoven's concertos and symphonies. They start this week with the eight concertos: one for violin and five for piano, plus the Choral Fantasy for piano, chorus and orchestra and the 'triple concerto' for violin, cello, piano and orchestra. The presenter is Penny Gore.

Our Thursday Opera Matinee is the third of Puccini's operatic triptych, Gianni Schicchi - you may have heard the first two in this San Francisco Opera production last week.

Thursday's programme also features a live concert by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, as well as the last of Beethoven's five piano concertos.

Then as a grand finale to the week, Louise Fryer presents a feast of musical humour - in Afternoon on 3's Red Nose Special, part of Radio 3's contribution to Red Nose Day.

There'll be a backbone (or should that be funny bone?) of pieces that tickle the fancy of Afternoon on 3 listeners - from musical jokes by Mozart and Haydn through Gilbert and Sullivan to Anna Russell, Flanders and Swann and Tom Lehrer.

Comedians will join Louise to pick their own classical favourites too - including Lenny Henry presenting his own recording of Prokofiev's 'Peter and the Wolf', and a mystery guest live in the studio.

The BBC's performing groups also have a funny turn: don't miss the BBC Symphony Orchestra tackling a few easy pieces - backwards - and jazz from the Welsh NOT NOW band, who fiddle with Sibelius in Bangor.

And at 4 o'clock it's over to the BBC's Maida Vale studios for the culmination of Radio 3's Red Nose Conducting Competition, as the lucky winner conducts the BBC Singers, live, in Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00zdh84)
Bournemouth SO - Bach, Berg, Beethoven

Presented by Catherine Bott.
Webern and Bach have much in common. Both loved puzzles, complex structures, and counterpoint. Both were champions of innovative ways to organise musical pitches. Webern's realisation is a tribute from one great contrapuntalist to the inspiration and skill of his predecessor. Webern liked to call this orchestration "his" Bach fugue, inferring that he had created something quite different from the original.

Berg was not a musician of revolutionary temperament. He had great reverence for musical tradition, demonstrated in his Violin Concerto which draws substance from, and pays homage to, the musical past. Throughout the work Berg uses the Lutheran chorale "It is Enough" to form repeated phrases before ending in peaceful reverence. This perhaps explains Berg's dedication, "To the Memory of an Angel".

The Eroica was Beethoven's first truly Romantic composition. Although his earlier works had shown flashes of what was to come, they followed the model of Mozart and Haydn. The Third Symphony, by contrast, opens with two staggering chords that announce to the world the arrival of a new talent, a forceful personality, a man never to be forgotten.
About the soloist:
"Khachatryan has that rarest of gifts of letting music play through him, rather than asserting his own presence...This is the kind of artistry that inspires an orchestra to give of its best, with just the lightest of touches from the conductor." David Fanning, Daily Telegraph

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00zdh86)
Italy 150th Anniversary of Unification Special

Anne McElvoy discusses the state of Italy, as the country marks 150 years of unification. Do the momentous events of 1861 still resonate? And just how united is Silvio Berlusconi's Italy today?

On 17 March 1861, Victor Emmanuel II became the first king of a united Italy, following years of Risorgimento conflicts led by the military commander Giuseppe Garibaldi, Italy's national hero. Turin emerged as the new capital city, followed by Florence and finally Rome.

But what really was the Risorgimento about, and why is there still opposition to the idea of an Italian nation state?

Anne McElvoy is joined by Lucy Riall, Professor of History at Birkbeck College and author of Garibaldi: Invention of a hero; Maurizio Isabella, historian from Queen Mary and author of Risorgimento in Exile; Gaia Servadaio, author and journalist whose books include Rossini, and Women in the Renaissance; and John Foot, UCL Professor, expert on contemporary Italy and writer of A History of Italian Football.

Producer: Timothy Prosser.

For Colored Girls...

Producer: Smita Patel.

For Nielsen, "music is life, and like life, inextinguishable" and that certainly applies to this, his most popular symphony, full of drama and the will to live. Saint- Saëns' Concerto is wonderfully spontaneous, beginning like Bach and ending like Offenbach, an exhilarating and unstoppable tour de force.

Critic Sarah Dunant reviews Submarine, the hotly anticipated feature film directorial debut of comic actor Richard Ayaode.

Do we exist millimetres away from a parallel universe? Physicist Brian Greene talks about the theories explored in his latest book: The Hidden Reality: Parallel Universes and the Deep Laws of the Cosmos, that much of reality's true nature may be deeply hidden within parallel universes. He discusses what form these alternative worlds may take and how they may hover closer to us than we could ever imagine.

And Munira Mirza, Boris Johnson's Chief arts advisor argues in a new report that the arts world needs to stop thinking about diversity and focus more on excellence. She debates whether or not culture has gone beyond multiculturism.

FRI 07:00 Breakfast (b00zdhq4)
Red Nose Day

Radio 3 Breakfast celebrates Red Nose Day by inviting you to join Rob Cowan in a game of Consequences. Rob and his guest - popular poet and Radio 3 presenter Ian McMillan - will host a special edition of Breakfast as part of this year's Comic Relief.

The game of Consequences is a well known favourite at parties in which each participant adds a line to a structured story, often ending up with hilarious results. Ian and Rob will guide listeners through the process and pick out the sentences at random which have been emailed and texted into the programme. The challenge is that then Ian has to add his own sentence and attempt to make sense of what has gone before. The next sentence is then written by listeners and is picked at random, and so on until the end of the story is reached when the programme finishes at 10am.


FRI 10:00 Classical Collection (b00zdhq6)
Red Nose Day

Sarah Walker takes the chair for this special Red Nose Day edition of Classical Collection. She challenges four celebrity guests, actors John Sessions, Henry Goodman, Rebecca Front and writer/broadcaster Paul Bailey, as well as Radio 3 listeners, to a light-hearted musical contest that mixes cryptic clues with fiendish tests of melodic trivia. Besides attempting to unravel the answers, the guests will each bring a personal choice of music to add to the morning's entertainment. Join in the fun, and see if you can outwit the guests.


FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00zhbl3)
Donald Macleod's Unbelievable Spoofs

The world of classical music is a funny old place. Donald Macleod should know - he's been charting its every quirk for over a decade. And along the way, he's discovered that separating the fact from the fiction is not an easy task. In a special live edition for Comic Relief, the two intertwine as Donald plunges into the history of the musical spoof. But who are the spoofs, and who are the unlikely musicians whose lives are so utterly absurd they can only be true?

With the help of silent film accompanist Neil Brand we meet such dubious figures as Bolognese theatre composer Lasagne Verdi, famously submitted (and nearly printed) in the music world's most trusted encyclopedia, served for good measure with an accompaniment of Pietro Gnocchi. There's a chance to hear the music of Pietro Raimondi, the man who composed three oratorios to be performed simultaneously, centuries before Charles Ives conceived of such an adventure. Avant-garde composers reemerge from the BBC archive too, including Hilda Tablet whose 'reinforced concrete music' found its way into the repertory of Covent Garden in the 1950s. Plus a bizarre encounter with the man said to be a reincarnation of Merlin and Francis Bacon, variously described as a courtier, adventurer, charlatan, inventor, alchemist, pianist, violinist and amateur composer. But did he really exist? You'll have to make up your own mind.

FRI 17:00 In Tune (b00zdhsh)
The international Classical Music world is highly complex and often misunderstood, riven with hierarchies and ruled by huge egos. In this special Comic Relief edition of In Tune, arts-analyst Dame Edna Everage, and Cultural Ambassador (and former Chairman of the International Cheese Board) Sir Les Patterson join Sean Rafferty to penetrate the mysteries of classical music both around the world and in Australia. Harry the Piano, already known to Radio 3 listeners from the Genius of Mozart, improvises on themes suggested by listeners plus a few other 'culturally relevant' tunes.

Today's programme also reveals the winning presenter of the cross-Radio Stand-Up for Comic Relief with Radio 3's Tom Service trying his hand at stand-up, plus a feature on a musical project Comic Relief supports: the Lofthouse 2000 Brass Band, a former colliery band who have used money to buy new instruments.


FRI 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00zdhsk)
The Big Red Nose Show

The culminating event of Radio 3's Red Nose Day is this spectacular concert from the Royal Albert Hall, hosted by Katie Derham and Basil Brush, with stars from the worlds of classical music and comedy joining together with the BBC Concert Orchestra, for one night of camaraderie to raise money for Comic Relief.
The concert includes Ravel's Tzigane, Eric Coates' Dambusters March, Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, The Swan from Carnival of the Animals, Handel's Let The Bright Seraphim and the Finale from Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto; plus stand-up comedy from Tim Vine and Marcus Brigstocke; Sue Perkins takes a turn at conducting; and the official Guinness World Record attempt to create the largest kazoo orchestra on the planet.

Shuna Scott Sendall (soprano)
BBC Concert Orchestra, conductor Johannes Wildner

As well as popular classics played by world-class soloists Nicola Benedetti (violin) and Julian Lloyd Webber (cello), and arias sung by rising star Shuna Scott Sendall (winner of the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Kiri Prize), Sue Perkins, winner of BBC Two series Maestro, will be raising her baton to conduct the orchestra; and fellow-comedians Tim Vine and Marcus Brigstocke will be providing comic interludes.
The evening will be hosted by Radio 3's Katie Derham with help from her mischievous fox sidekick, Basil Brush, who also takes a solo spot singing Gilbert and Sullivan.
The concert culminates with a celebrity kazoo group joining the Masters Of The Kazooniverse to 'buzz' their way through some classics. Comedienne Miranda Hart says: "It's going to be a real spectacle. I just need to work out what a kazoo actually is, and then work out how to play it. It's fun even saying 'kazoo' so I can't wait.".


FRI 21:15 The Verb (b00zdhsm)
Garrison Keillor, Ginger and Black, Damian Barr

Ian McMillan presents a live edition of Radio 3's lively language cabaret. Writer and broadcaster Garrison Keillor performs love sonnets from his first collection of poetry. The director Laurie Sansom and the actor Liz White offer a close reading of Tennessee Williams's dramatic language in his centenary year. The acerbic duo Ginger and Black perform musical comedy with a dark side and Damian Barr explains why he can often be found in his pyjamas in other people's hotel rooms, clutching a book.

The Book that Changed Me

Pride and Prejudice

Producer: Smita Patel.


FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00zdhsr)
