Gnawa and World Music Festival 2009

Lucy Duran joins 400,000 Moroccans at the 2009 Gnawa and World Music Festival in Essaouira on Morocco's Atlantic coast, an annual free festival which celebrates their ancient tradition of trance music which is thought to have the power of spiritual healing. With music by Berber singer Braim Assli and an improvised collaborative concert by New Orleans jazzband Congo Nation and local musicians Agadir Gnawa.

Essaouira is an old stone town that is home to an even older style of music which arrived in Morocco centuries ago with the slaves who came from across the Sahara. It's a sacred music which is traditionally heard at all-night 'lilas', where animal sacrifices are made, people are healed from spiritual and physical ailments, and, it is said, a good time is had by all. The sound of the music is characterised by the bass thump of the three-stringed 'gimbri' and the strident clatter of metal castanets. The Gnawa and World Music Festival was established twelve years ago to celebrate the gnawa tradition, with concerts featuring gnawa masters from all over Morocco, together with events where gnawa musicians collaborate with artists from across the globe.

SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b0106yt9)
Live from the Met

Berg: Wozzeck

Berg's Wozzeck
Live from the New York Metropolitan Opera.

Here we go: jealousy, humiliation, murder and suicide. It sounds as if it could be any night at the opera. But Alban Berg's Wozzeck is one of the 20th century's greatest dramatic works, the story of a man at the bottom of the heap who goes to pieces under unrelenting pressure.

It's an opera of extraordinary power which combines traditional musical forms with a plot of crushing despair, leaving no hint of hope or redemption.

Berg's masterpiece calls for great singer-actors on stage and a virtuoso orchestra and conductor in the pit. Things are set fair with baritone Alan Held in the title role, mezzo Waltraud Meier as his common law wife, and an equally impressive supporting cast including Australian tenor-of-the-moment Stuart Skelton. James Levine conducts: over the past four decades, he has been the driving force behind the Met Orchestra's rise to the premiere league of US ensembles.

Presented by Margaret Juntwait with guest commentator Ira Siff.

Brett Dean: Bliss

Tom Service presents the broadcast premiere of Brett Dean's three act opera Bliss, based on the novel by Peter Carey. Peter Coleman-Wright stars as Harry Joy the advertising executive with a dysfunctional family, who sees his life for what it really is following a heart attack. Between the acts Tom talks to the composer, to the opera's librettist Amanda Holden and to the critic Anna Picard. Plus, a recording of Dean's 2006 orchestral work Komarov's Fall, commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic and inspired by the story of Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov's ill-fated mission at the height of the space race in 1967.

Peggy Lee

In later life, reclusive and swathed in a jewelled scarf, Peggy Lee had come a long way from her origins as a jazz singer. In this programme, Gwyneth Herbert, herself a fine interpreter of Lee's songs, explores the singer's earlier work, with Benny Goodman, as a broadcasting artist and as a pure jazz singer. As well as Peggy Lee standards such as Why Don't You Do Right and Fever, there are many examples of her jazz excellence in lesser known songs.

The American Civil War

The War of the North

150 years after the start of the American Civil War, Dr Adam Smith travels from Lincoln's home town of Springfield, Illinois to Washington DC and the battlefields of Virginia as he asks why the North fought and what it won.

With the help of leading historians including Eric Foner, Gary Gallagher, Ed Ayres, James McPherson and Chandra Manning, Adam reveals the worlds and minds of the North, considers the relationship between the Civil War and Emancipation and asks whether the victory of the North means that a conflict that killed more than half a million Americans should now be a cause for celebration.

Monday - James Jolly

Which conductor do we have to thank for this digital age of SACDs, IPads, BlueRay discs and IPods? Answer: Herbert von Karajan. He played an important role in the development of the CD, and made the first recording to be commercially released in the format. There are all sorts of quasi-religious expressions to describe Karajan: Omnifex Maximus; The Almighty; The Sun King; The Miracle; The Myth - but ultimately he was a man who made music, a musician who had a special gift for extracting beautiful sounds from an orchestra.
This week James Jolly guides us through Karajan's recordings of Beethoven, Johann Strauss, Johann Strauss II, Brahms, Sibelius, Tchaikovsky, beginning today with Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and Brahms's German Requiem, plus the Building a Library Choice from Saturday's CD Review of Prokofiev's Symphony No.6, a work written as an elegy of the tragedies of World War II.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b010722x)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 1

Donald Macleod explores Felix Mendelssohn's last seven years, starting with his appointment in 1841 to the post of Royal Prussian Kapellmeister in his home town of Berlin. For the previous six years Mendelssohn had been based in Leipzig, as director of the Gewandhaus Concerts. He had been spectacularly successful, turning the orchestra there into one of the finest in Europe - and thereby making himself an attractive prospect for neighbouring rulers to poach. The new king of Prussia, Friedrich Wilhelm IV, wanted to make Berlin a cultural centre to be reckoned with, and had decided that Mendelssohn was the man for the job. After six months of strenuous but largely unsuccessful attempts to hammer out the responsibilities of his post, Mendelssohn was offered a lucrative one-year contract on a pretty much take-it-or-leave-it basis; he took it, but the job remained ill-defined and he grew increasingly frustrated - not least with the lack of any progress whatsoever on the proposed new Berlin Conservatory, the creation of which had been a major carrot during the negotiations. Mendelssohn's incidental music to Sophocles' Antigone is one of the few fruits of this first Berlin post; but at least he had plenty of time to get to grips with the composition of his 'Scottish' Symphony, the seeds of which had been sown during his visit to the ruins of Queen Mary's palace of Holyrood in 1829. On hearing the symphony, one contemporary critic astutely commented, "we may prophesy that it will rouse pure feeling of pleasure everywhere".

Diaghilev Ballets

Presented by Catherine Bott

The CBSO celebrates the creative energies of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes with two brilliant ballet scores. Diaghilev brought together some of the most influential artists of the early twentieth-century, including Stravinsky, Picasso, Matisse and Nijinsky. Tonight the orchestra features music by Stravinsky and Ravel.

Stravinsky's Petrushka, premiered in 1911, tells a fantastic story of love and death amidst the marionettes at a Russian spring fair; Ravel's Daphnis et Chloé, premiered a year later, meanwhile, is a love story of Ancient Greece relating the love between a goatherd and a shepherdess, set to some of the most sensuous music ever written for the stage.

MON 23:00 Belief (b0107239)
Omid Djalili

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 Omid Djalili, a stand up comic, actor, and star of the film "The Infidel" in which his Muslim character discovers his birth parents are Jewish.

Omid Djalili is a British Iranian and a member of the Baha'i faith, a religion which, although it only has seven million adherents, is geographically the second most widespread in the world. Omid's forbears were among its first adherents in 19th century Iran, a country in which those practising the faith are now persecuted. The core principles of Bahá'í doctrine are the unity of God, the unity of religion, and the unity of humankind. Omid's central belief is summed up in a quote from Teilhard de Chardin, "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.".


MON 23:30 Jazz on 3 (b010723c)
NeWT featuring Silke Eberhard

Jez Nelson presents Edinburgh-based trio NeWt featuring German alto saxophonist and clarinettist Silke Eberhard. Drummer Chris Wallace, guitarist Graeme Stephen and trombonist Chris Greive got together in 2006. After securing funding in 2008 to develop new material with a foreign artist, NeWt began an ongoing collaboration with Eberhard in 2008 that has included an album on the F-IRE label. Influenced by Zappa, electronica, rock and folk, the group makes the most of its unusual line-up of instruments, weaving electronic effects and humour into music shaped by collective free improvisation. Recorded at Matt and Phred's in Manchester.

"Daniel Barenboim is one of the few musicians in the world today who could accurately be described as legendary" (The Times). Most known at the present time for his work with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra and the Barenboim-Said Foundation, which promotes music and co-operation through projects targeted at young Arabs and Israelis, the Argentinian Barenboim first came to prominence as a virtuoso pianist. Today he performs Beethoven's Piano Sonata No.7 in D major as part of our cycle of the complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas. Daniel Barenboim has played the Beethoven Piano Sonatas for over fifty years and offers a profound insight into this repertoire. "The playing has the kind of confident spontaneity that is only possible where there is deep knowledge, not only of the letter but also of the spirit." (Gramophone). Today's performance comes from his first recording of the complete sonatas recorded in London between 1966 and 1969. Barenboim was under 25 when the project got under way.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 2

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years. Christmas 1842 must have been a bleak one in the Mendelssohn household; on 12 December the composer's mother, Lea, had died. Wealthy, cultured, intelligent and larger than life, Lea Mendelssohn had presided over a salon frequented by some of the greatest minds of the day. Mendelssohn's father, Abraham, had died some years earlier, so as the composer now wrote to his brother Paul: "We are children no longer." Understandably, fresh composition was difficult, and he started the new year by revising an old work - Die Erste Walpurgisnacht. Then there was a series of concerts to conduct in Berlin, along with the none-too-onerous 'duties' of his new, resounding-sounding appointment as Generalmusikdirector für kirchliche und geistliche Musik - although this did result in the incidental music to A Midsummer Night's Dream. When he had negotiated his new contract with the Prussian king, Friedrich Wilhelm IV, it had been agreed that Mendelssohn could spend part of 1843 in his old stamping-ground, Leipzig. On his arrival there he was promptly offered the job of Director of Music to the Saxon court - he declined, but managed to persuade King Frederick Augustus III to establish a new music conservatory in the city. He also conducted a series of eight subscription concerts, was granted the Freedom of the city of Leipzig, and unveiled a monument to his musical hero, J S Bach. Back in Berlin, he was driven up the wall by the Prussian government's shilly-shallying over the conditions attached to his new post in charge of church music. He worked off some of his frustration in paint - not just a prodigious composer, he was a talented artist as well - and in the composition of his exuberant 2nd Cello Sonata.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Debussy and Ravel

Presented by Catherine Bott

The distinguished American cellist Lynn Harrell joins the conductor Donald Runnicles and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in this mix of music by French composers. Dutilleux extended the colour palette of his earlier compatriots, and his elusive, nocturnal Cello concerto is a finely nuanced work. The inspiration came from the poetry of Baudelaire, especially a line that gave it its title: 'A whole distant world... dwells in your depths, oh scented forest'. Also inspired by literature was Ravel's wonderful ballet score for Mother Goose, while Spain, often such a great source of inspiration for French composers, forms the exotic backdrop to both Debussy's Iberia and Ravel's ever-popular showpiece, Bolero.

The Death of the Professional, Parmenides, Royal Wedding Memorabilia

On Night Waves tonight, Philip Dodd asks if we're witnessing the death of the professional, as the cuts begin to bite and technology is also making their expertise redundant.

Pre-Socratic poet Parmenides is arguably one of the most important philosophers in the western tradition. His poem On Nature has been described as the origin of metaphysics and rationalism. Professors Ray Tallis, MM McCabe and Simon Goldhill examine the importance of his work and its bearing on contemporary thought.

Historian Robert Opie discusses the history of royal wedding memorabilia as the nation gears up for the nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Tonight Joan Bakewell's guest is the physician, poet and philosopher, Raymond Tallis. He is Professor Emeritus of Geriatric medicine at Manchester University but has made his name as much outside the field of medicine as within it. A humanist, he writes about the transcendence of human beings and is a vigorous critic of the kind of scientific thinking which reduces them to animals. According to Tallis, only humans can point, and in that action they transcend their biology.

10.15 The Wednesday Award-Winner
Berlin, 11 November 1989: a cellist gave an impromptu performance at the Berlin Wall as demonstrators tore it down. That cellist was Mstislav Rostropovich, a Russian, and a courageous defender of human rights, who fought for art without borders, freedom of speech, and democratic values. We'll hear him in an award-winning recording made in 1984, at a time when Rostropovich was based in the United States, in self-imposed exile from the Soviet Union, because of his public opposition to the Soviet Union's restriction of cultural freedom.
Known throughout the classical music world as Slava, his playing was characterised by a rich flood of sound, his musical personality was in every sense larger than life. In today's recording, he is joined in a Brahms sonata by the pianist Rudolf Serkin. "With playing of this calibre, with both artists wonderfully attuned to each other's responses, every nuance tells and Brahms's bold melodic lines soar out from the speakers to capture the listener's imagination, and provide an enthralling musical experience."

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0107499)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 3

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years with a look at the year 1844. Towards the end of the previous year the composer had finally, after months of wrangling, taken up his new appointment as Director of Sacred Music in Berlin. In the event, he found it impossible to work with the court chaplain, Friedrich Adolf Strauss, and ended up providing music for just four services - Christmas, New Year's Day, Passion Sunday and Good Friday. It doubtless came as a great relief to him to return, in the spring, to a city he had first visited in 1829 - London, or "that smoky nest", as he fondly called it. He had agreed to help out the Philharmonic Society, whose finances were in a bad way, by conducting a few concerts for them. The headache induced by a seven-hour rehearsal meant that he had to turn down an invitation to visit Charles Babbage of Difference Engine fame, but Mendelssohn did get to meet Charles Dickens and William Makepeace Thackeray, who pronounced his face: "the most beautiful ...I ever saw, like what I imagine our Saviour's to have been..." His stay was crowned by an audience with Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. It was also during this visit that he composed one of his best-known works - Hear My Prayer, whose second section opens with the line that has given the piece its popular name: 'O for the wings of a dove'. Another of Mendelssohn's most popular creations dates from autumn of the same year - the Violin Concerto, written for his old friend Ferdinand David. David played the première on his 1742 Guarneri del Gesu violin, which later passed to Jascha Heifetz, who plays it on the recording you'll hear in the programme.

In fact these performances are truly international - the Sibelius is conducted by one of the leading Danish maestros and the Britten (which was premiered in the USA) played by a young Dutch star with a conductor from Estonia. Borders - what borders?!

Then if you love Wagner but aren't so sure about opera singers we've just the thing - an extended 'suite' of music from Wagner's 'Ring' without a single voice to be heard.

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b010749k)
Faure Requiem

Presented by Catherine Bott

Although widely known for his chamber music and French songs, it is with his Requiem that Faure produced his magnum opus - a much-loved masterpiece. Serenely beautiful and deeply moving, it makes a profound impact on listeners and performers alike.

The BBC Singers perform the Requiem in a new version for choir and small instrumental ensemble arranged by David Hill, and it is preceded by a rarely-heard large-scale setting of Psalm 130, De profundis, by the great French organ virtuoso Marcel Dupre, who thought of himself as an organist first and composer second. This Psalm is richly textured and virtuosic.

Dupre: De profundis
Faure: Requiem

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b010749m)
Landmark - The Avengers

Matthew Sweet dons his kinky boots to investigate the phenomenon of The Avengers, 50 years after its first transmission. As well as its regular cavalcade of cyborgs, spies and megalomaniacs, The Avengers seemed to present the world of British television with a new action figure - the liberated single female who, week after week, proved to be deadlier than the male. But how progressive was its sexual politics ? Was Diana Rigg in her all leather cat suit a male fantasy or a feminist icon and did Honor Blackman always play second fiddle to Patrick Macnee ?

Matthew has assembled a crack team of thinkers to ponder these mind-bending questions - teenage fans Bea Campbell and Sarah Dunant, historian Dominic Sandbrook and one of the masterminds of The Avengers, the screenwriter Brian Clemens.

Producer: Stephen Hughes (Repeat).

WED 23:00 Belief (b010749p)
Salley Vickers

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 the novelist Salley Vickers. Salley Vickers wrote her first novel at the age of fifty after careers in university education and psychoanalysis. Miss Garnet's Angel, the story of an atheistic, uptight woman who flourishes during a winter spent among the churches and art of Venice, became an instant bestseller. Her succeeding novels, including Mr Golightly's holiday and The Other Side Of you, also have a spiritual dimension, featuring angels, Old Testament prophets - and God. Even so religion's arch-critic Philip Pullman describes her as "a presence to be cherished." Listen to "Belief" and you 'll understand why.


WED 23:30 Late Junction (b010749r)

Rumour attached to the famous dies hard - Paganini's pact with the devil, Salieri's poisoning of Mozart, Tchaikovsky's suicide, undertaken to maintain the honour of a School of Jurisprudence. The evidence is inconclusive. Yet Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony premiered one month before his death, with its funereal tone (Tchaikovsky underlays every important theme of the first movement with verbal rhythms from the Russian Orthodox funeral service) and sudden bursts of passionate resistance, seems by its very nature to suggest that it is a confessional piece, a prediction of the composer's death. Perhaps a more relevant reason for its funereal tone is that in the months leading up to its composition, Tchaikovsky suffered the death of many friends and colleagues - Konstantin Shilovsky, co-librettist of Yevgeny Onegin, Karl Albrecht of the Moscow Conservatory, Vladimir Shilovsky, to whom the composer had once been deeply attached, and Aleksey Apukhtin, his exact contemporary, former classmate and lifelong friend.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01074f9)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 4

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years. In October 1844, the composer took the bull by the horns in an audience with his royal employer Friedrich Wilhelm IV, the King of Prussia, and asked to be released from his service to the crown - a grand-sounding, but in practice rather vague position, which had been a source of immense frustration and disappointment to the composer. His request was granted - more or less. Mendelssohn would no longer be required to live in Berlin, and there'd be no fixed duties to perform; just the occasional royal commission. One such commission was to supply incidental music for a performance of Racine's play Athalie (as Donald suggests, the full-blooded choruses give tantalizing glimpses of the opera Mendelssohn might have composed, had he lived long enough). Early in 1845 came a request out of the blue from the other side of the world - the newly-created New York Philharmonic Society was inviting him to go to the United States to conduct a "Grand Musical Festival", with an orchestra of 250 and chorus of 500 at his disposal. Mendelssohn declined - he didn't feel his health would be up to such a long and arduous trip, and he told his brother Paul that undertaking such a venture would be "no more possible than a trip to the moon". Instead, he composed a set of six small but perfectly formed organ sonatas for the British publisher Charles Coventry, and worked on his highly virtuosic 2nd Piano Trio, written in Frankfurt during a freak flood of the River Main; perhaps that's reflected in the stormy opening of the trio's first movement!

Thursday Opera Matinee

Verdi - Aida

Verdi's Aida
From the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

Aida, an Ethiopian princess, is enslaved to the Egyptians and is secretly in love with the Egyptian soldier, Radames. Radames returns her feelings, but Amneris, daughter of the King, is in love with him too. As well as ceremonial grand scenes, Verdi's opera has at its heart a finely expressed story of a secret love between cultures, and the anguish of divided loyalties between duty for ones country and personal feeling. Verdi had to be persuaded to compose the work for Cairo's opera house once it had opened, and he created a world which combines exotic sounds and deeply felt expression.

Broadway Report, Rachel Beer, Tim Hetherington, Rona Munro, How I Ended This Summer

It's been a very busy week on Broadway. More shows open in March and April than in the rest of the year put together and Matt Wolf has spent his week in the theatres there for Night Waves. He's seen the musical THE BOOK OF MORMON, a first attempt at the genre by Matt Stone and Trey Parker the Creators of South Park., JERUSALEM which has transferred from a five star reviewed run in London with Mark Rylance, Robin Williams's Broadway debut in a play called BENGAL TIGER AT THE BAGHDAD ZOO and Chris Rock's B'way debut in a play by Stephen Adly Guirgis called - THE MOTHER.. WITH THE HAT.

A new book by writing duo Eilat Negev and Yehuda Koren examines the life, fortune and tragedy of the newspaper editor Rachel Beer who, although denied the vote like all women in the late nineteenth century, edited both The Sunday Times and the Observer.
They are joined by Katherine Viner the assistant editor of the Guardian to discuss her achievements.

Tim Hetherington had achieved a world wide reputation as a war photographer, journalist and Oscar nominated documentary film maker for his film Restrepo before he was killed yesterday in Libya, while capturing images of fighting between Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's forces and Libyan rebels. We remember him, and his work.

Rona Munro has a string of theatre and screenwriting credits to her name and with her plays Little Eagles, about Sergei Korolyov, the chief designer and unsung hero of the Soviet space programme,
at the Hampstead Theatre and a rom-com thriller 'Pandas' at the Traverse in Edinburgh performing simultaneously she talks to Anne McElvoy.

And Ian Christie reviews an award-winning Russian drama, 'How I ended this summer,' set on a weather station in the Arctic circle, which boasts a cast of two men and one polar bear.

That's Night Waves, tonight at 9.15pm on Radio 3 with Anne McElvoy.

Tarik O'Regan

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 the composer Tarik O'Regan.
O'Regan, a rising star among composers, says his best composition lessons were the hours spent as an idle percussionist at the back of an orchestra waiting for his moment to play.
He spent most of his childhood summers in North African with his family before studying at Oxford, and
brings both the influences of the muezzin and the chorister to bear on his music. His first opera, based on Joseph Conrad's novel "Heart of Darkness" will be premiered in the autumn. (repeat).

Friday - James Jolly

James Jolly with recordings by our Artist of the Week, Herbert von Karajan; today with one of his most celebrated recordings of Beethoven, the Symphony No.4 from his early 1960s cycle with the Berlin Philharmonic. Our Friday Virtuoso is Japanese violinst Midori, and there is music with connections to Good Friday and Easter from Rimsky-Korsakov (the Russian Easter Festival Overture) and the Easter Hymn from Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana.

Definitive Beethoven - definitive Karajan: the classical music world's greatest composer interpreted by his great advocate. Today James Jolly introduces Beethoven's Symphony No.4 in Herbert von Karajan's recording from 1962. Karajan recorded the complete symphonies of Beethoven FOUR times. But, in many ways, his early 60s cycle stands out from the other three. It was the first recording of the Nine to be conceived, planned and sold as an integral set. The initial purchasers had to pay a subscription for the LPs, which were sent to them symphony by symphony. 49 years later, this cycle has become somewhat of a benchmark for these cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire and the Fourth is considered by many as the highlight of the cycle.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01074j0)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)

Episode 5

Donald Macleod concludes his exploration of Mendelssohn's last seven years with a look at the genesis of his oratorio Elijah, whose popularity in Victorian England was second only to that of Handel's Messiah - certainly not a claim that could be made today, when it tends to be regarded as the height of kitsch. In 1846, the city of Birmingham invited Mendelssohn to take charge of its music festival. He turned the job down, but agreed instead to compose an oratorio for the festival. After the earlier success of his oratorio St Paul, Mendelssohn had considered composing an Elijah; the Birmingham commission prompted him to return to this idea, which he'd had on the back burner for the past 10 years. The first performance was a huge success - "Never was there a more complete triumph!", as The Times put it - but Mendelssohn wasn't completely satisfied, and immediately set about overhauling the work for the London première the following year. According to a contemporary report it was met with a "long-continued unanimous volley of plaudits, vociferous and deafening applause." Mendelssohn's elation, however, was short-lived. On his return to Germany he was met by a letter from his brother Paul, telling him that their beloved sister Fanny had suffered a series of strokes and died - while rehearsing one of his pieces. Mendelssohn remained in a state of emotional collapse for some time, but when he was able to compose again he poured his grief out in his anguished 6th String Quartet - the last major work he completed before his own death, just two months later.

FRI 19:00 Performance on 3 (b01074j8)
Easter at King's

Presented by Catherine Bott

Stephen Cleobury conducts music for Good Friday, live from King's College, Cambridge. Frank Martin wrote some of the most poignant sacred music of the 20th century and his large scale oratorio Golgotha is a powerful, rich and complex work. Martin was inspired to create his own Passion after seeing Rembrandt's etching, 'The Three Crosses'. Using texts from the Gospels and the writings of St Augustine, he creates a world in darkness and doubt in which the five soloists share the narrative and character roles. Martin builds on the legacy of Bach's Passions by drawing on the finest 20th century heritage of Debussy, Poulenc and Stravinsky.

FRI 23:00 Belief (b01074jd)
Stanley Hauerwas

Joan Bakewell's guest on Belief this Good Friday is the Texan-born theologian Stanley Hauerwas. Born into a bricklaying family, Stanley Hauerwas says the skills he learned there are the same skills which he now applies to his academic work - and which has led Time Magazine to call him "America's best Theologian." A pacifist and a provacateur he criticises an American identity he says is built on waging war, and a church often more concerned to make good Americans than good Christians.


FRI 23:30 World on 3 (b01074jg)
Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, plus a studio session with American star of country music Emmylou Harris, performing songs from her new solo album 'Hard Bargain'.

In recent years Emmylou's music has moved on from the country music mainstream to a style closer to alternative music. Her new album includes a song that harks back to the darkest days of 1950s American racism, another that reflects on her relationship with the late Gram Parsons, and one that is a tribute to fellow singer Kate McGarrigle. She talks about them, and gives an exclusive acoustic solo performance.
