Puccini - Tosca

Michael Grandage

Michael Berkeley talks to award-winning theatre director Michael Grandage, who succeeded Sam Mendes as director of the Donmar Warehouse in London in 2002. He also concurrently worked at the Sheffield Theatres until 2005, where his work included a number of high-profile new productions of his own as well as showcasing the work of innovative young directors and designers. He has given the Donmar an international profile, and has himself produced six plays a year there during his tenure, as part of a repertoire that includes a mixture of new plays, musicals such as 'Merrily we Roll Along', 'Guys and Dolls', 'Grand Hotel' and 'Evita', 20th-century American and British drama, and Euopean work in new versions. Three of his own productions transferred to Broadway, including 'Frost/Nixon', 'Hamlet', starring Jude Law, and John Logan's 'Red'. In 2010 he made his Glyndebourne debut as an opera director with a new production of 'Billy Budd', and this year has directed 'Don Giovanni' at the New York Met. He will step down as director of the Donmar at the end of this year to develop other areas of his work.

His musical choices begin with part of a Palestrina Mass, and include the rondo from Mozart's Horn Concerto No,.3 played by Dennis Brain; Malcolm Arnold's Concerto for 2 pianos and orchestra, and the fourth movement of Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony as well as a duet from the original National Theatre cast recording of 'Guys and Dolls', incidental music to 'The Tempest' by Julian Philips, and part of Britten's opera 'Billy Budd'.

Presented by Catherine Bott

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b0159f8g)
Breakfast

"Dinner parties are mere formalities; but you invite a man to breakfast because you want to see him." Thomas Babington Macauley

Of all the meals we eat Breakfast is the most loaded with possibility - to share a breakfast is to share intimacy, or to sit stubbornly in stony cold silence. It is a defining moment in the day, one of ritual and habit, full of joyous promise, or melancholic wonder. It is a meal to obsess over, to fuss over its constitution, or to ignore and sit in quiet contemplation.

Felicity Kendal and Gerard Murphy read poetry and prose around the theme of Breakfast ranging from the Victoriana of Mrs Isabella Beeton's missives to servants, to the narcotic fuelled orgies of Hunter S Thompson, the morning misery of Frank O'Hara, to the boiled egg obsessiveness of James Bond. Breakfast music is provided by G.F.Handel, Frank Zappa, Gustav Mahler, and Dusty Springfield amongst others.

First broadcast in October 2011.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b0159f8j)
Out in the World - A Global Gay History

Episode 3

Turning his gaze to India, Polynesia and Native America, Richard Coles continues his excavation of same-sex desire across the centuries, focusing on the age of Empire and the relationship between gender and sexuality.

When the European nations went out into the world during the era of colonial expansion, they found a bewildering and - to them - shocking array of sexual behaviours. In many societies, gender rather than sexuality took precedence - such as India's third-gender Hijras or the Native Americans' multiple genders.

As Richard finds out, the colonial authorities set about imposing western moral mores around the world - systematically destroying indigenous traditions which had existed for centuries. He concludes by taking the pulse of those societies in the post imperial era.

Producer: Laurence Grissell

First broadcast in September 2011.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b00v7sjw)
The Unfortunates, by BS Johnson

by B.S. Johnson
adapted by Graham White

Cast:
Bryan ..... Martin Freeman
Tony ..... Patrick Kennedy
Wendy ..... Claire Rushbrook
June ..... Jacqueline Defferary
Tony's Father ..... Sean Baker
First Aid Woman/Tony's Mother ..... Christine Kavanagh
Sation Announcer/Reporter ..... Tony Bell
Landlady/Clerk ..... Sally Orrock
Guest House owner/Reporter ..... Jude Akuwudike
Clerk/Newspaper Voice ..... Lloyd Thomas
Grocer/Clerk ..... Sam Dale
Passing Child ..... Joseph Dudgeon
Tony's son ..... Greta Dudgeon

directed by Mary Peate

"But I know this city...Tony. This town. His town. Their town."

Adaptation of B.S. Johnson's 1969 novel in which a sports journalist travels to a strange city to cover a football match, only to discover it was the city where he first met his friend Tony who has died young of cancer. We follow the journalist from his arrival at the train station, through lunch, to the match and on the journey home, as different memories of his friend are triggered.

Originally published in 27 unbound pamphlets in a box, The Unfortunates was intended to be read in a random order. The lack of a fixed order is suggestive of the way memories occur, and the book becomes a meditation not just on friendship and loss, but also on the nature of memory and writing as our hero struggles to recall everything in order to 'get it all down' as he promised his dying friend.

B.S. Johnson is not a household name, but his novels are beloved by a growing number of people who have discovered him and he has something of a cult status. Renewed interest in B.S. Johnson came partly from the publication of Jonathan Coe's celebrated biography of Johnson, Like a Fiery Elephant.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0159g96)
William Schuman (1910-1992)

Episode 1

Donald Macleod introduces the life and career of composer William Schuman - one of the most influential American music and arts administrators of the 20th century.

No-one makes statues of arts administrators. They slip quietly into the background, unfussily bringing their glamorous peers - orchestras, conductors, composers, virtuosos - to the attention and adulation of the public.whilst simultaneously helping to teach and nurture the next generation of young musical stars.

They are, in short - vital. And William Schuman was unquestionably the greatest music administrator of the entire 20th century - a man who as President of New York's Juilliard School and the Lincoln Center, became perhaps the most influential musician in the whole of America: a whole nation's music-making in the palm of his hand.

Not bad for a largely self-taught composer, who'd once ran a jazz band called "Billy Schuman and his All-Stars", and peddled songs on Tin Pan Alley in the heyday of Gershwin and Irving Berlin. But William Schuman was no pen-pushing bureaucrat - he was also one of the most prolific and critically-acclaimed composers in America: his symphonies, concerti and chamber works ranked with those of his good friends and colleagues Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein.

Unlike this iconic duo, Schuman's legacy has rather fallen off the radar on this side of the Atlantic. This week, Donald Macleod reintroduces us to one of the most respected and important American musicians of the 20th century.

Monday's episode takes us through this future Juilliard School President's unlikely musical beginnings, selling pop songs in Manhattan in the early 1930s, with his friend, the future jazz legend Frank Loesser. Donald Macleod also introduces two of the young composer's first mature works - his Piano Concerto and 3rd Symphony - as well as the popular American Festival Overture.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0159g98)
Ben Johnson, James Baillieu

Live from London's Wigmore Hall, Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ben Johnson performs Schubert's Schwanengesang (Swansong) with pianist James Baillieu

The final collection of Schubert songs was compiled after his death, hence it's title. It's not known whether Schubert intended the songs to be sung consecutively but it's usually thought that the song that Schubert's publisher included as the final one in the group, Taubenpost (Pigeon Post) is the very last song that Schubert composed. What is in no doubt is that the songs make a considerable impact in performance. Ben Johnson, embarking on what is sure to be an exciting career, is only a year or two younger than Schubert was when he wrote these songs - a poignant reminder of just how much the Viennese composer packed into his tragically short life.
The concert is presented by Suzy Klein

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b0159g9b)
BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales

Louise Fryer presents a week which profiles the BBC National Chorus of Wales and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. We're joined, live in the studio, by Chorus Master, Adrian Partington, to discover how the chorus works, plus there's music from the orchestra's most recent concerts in North and mid Wales.

After five successful years at the helm, Thierry Fischer opens his final season with the orchestra as Principal Conductor. We hear their concert from St. David's Hall in Cardiff, which took place just three days ago. Thierry leads the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales in two profound and moving works. John Adams's "On the Transmigration of the Souls" is a direct and emotional response to the events of 9/11 - heard here ten years on. The work weaves music with recorded sounds, a litany of friends and relatives reading the names of their loved ones who perished in the twin towers, as well as the everyday noises of the city around them.

A cultural icon virtually from its premiere nearly 200 years ago, with its famous choral setting of Schiller's "Ode to Joy" (which also became an "ode to freedom" in 1989 when the Berlin Wall came down), Beethoven's Ninth Symphony is a journey from darkness to light, and a personal declaration that all humankind stand together as brothers.

Adrian Partington directs the BBC National Chorus of Wales alone in Britten's "Hymn to St. Cecilia", a notoriously challenging choral work dedicated to the patron saint of music who shares her name day with Britten's own birthday, 22nd November. Adrian joins us live in the studio this afternoon to talk about his work with the 100-strong chorus. We also hear them on CD for Florent Schmitt's extravagant setting of the Psalm 47, "O clap your hands, all ye people". The programme opens with a short piece by Debussy, his entry for the Prix de Rome competition at the Paris Conservatoire, "Le Printemps" (Spring). It's conducted by Richard Hickox, Principal Conductor of the BBC NOW from 2000 to 2006.


MON 16:30 In Tune (b0159g9d)
The Gould Piano Trio perform works by Beethoven and Brahms live in the In Tune studio ahead of commencing their Beethoven Piano Trio Cycle concerts at St George's, Bristol.

Beethoven - String Quartet (Harp); String Quartet in D

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

Presented by Katie Derham

The Belcea Quartet begins its series of concerts featuring the quartets of Beethoven, as part of the Wigmore Hall's Beethoven focus. The string quartet was important to Beethoven throughout his life, and he fills them with an intimacy and intensity of expression.

This concert showcases works from different stages of Beethoven's life. The harp quartet is nicknamed after the plucked pizzicato effects, and has a heroic quality. The Op. 18 quartet is gentle in nature, and the quartet Op.130 shows Beethoven at the pinnacle of his powers.

Beethoven: Grosse Fuge

It's adored for its logic, beauty, and total honesty, but Beethoven's 'Grosse Fuge' has also been branded one of the most mystifying of all the composer's works. Stephen Johnson pulls apart this string quartet masterpiece, which Beethoven himself subtitled 'somewhat free, somewhat scholarly', and explores how on earth we should go about listening to it.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b0159g9j)
Tyrannosaur, Joanna Bourke, In Our Own Words: Soldiers' Thoughts from Afghanistan, Susan Ray

On tonight's Night Waves Matthew Sweet and Agnes Poirier review Tyrannosaur, the first film that actor Paddy Considine has written and directed himself. It's a bleak story of suppressed anger that breaks out periodically into violence, sexual abuse, dog killing and murder. It might just as easily have been called 'Living with Rage,' but the pockets of redemption, when they come, outlive the film.

Matthew also talks to the acclaimed historian Joanna Bourke about her new book 'What it Means to be Human', in which she explores the ever shifting line drawn between the human and the animal. Bourke was inspired to write the book following in the footsteps of a woman who wrote an open letter to the Times in 1870 in which she protested that women were not being treated as fully human.

As a new exhibition titled 'In Our Own Words: Soldiers' Thoughts from Afghanistan' opens at the Imperial War Museum North we look at how the portrayal of the modern day soldier has changed. Derek Eland, the artist behind the exhibition and Professor Simon Wessely, director of the King's Centre for Military Health Research, join Matthew to discuss.

And Susan Ray, the wife of legendary director Nicholas Ray, the auteur responsible for Rebel Without A Cause, on her restoration of her husband's final work, an experimental movie called 'We Can't Go Home Again'. The film, though, wasn't made for a big studio but a minor university, the result of a 10 year long fall from grace, in which one of America's most lauded film-makers was left unable to find work.

Producer: Rosie Childs.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b0159g9l)
The Darkest Hour

Margaret Drabble

Insomnia is one of the great obsessions of our time. Writers, artists, thinkers and leaders have always battled with sleep - from Van Gogh to Oscar Wilde, Winston Churchill to Margaret Thatcher. Shakespeare's night owls are legendary, from Lady Macbeth to Brutus, while Charles Dickens' insomnia took him on nocturnal walks in search of inspiration. But in our 24-hour culture, insomnia - this ability to switch off - has become something of a modern obsession, with today's writers and bloggers thinking nothing of tapping away at keyboards or pounding the streets for solace in the wee small hours.

In the first of this series, in which five night owls explore their own battles with sleeplessness, distinguished author Margaret Drabble looks at ageing and sleeplessness. She asks why, after years of insomnia, it's become something of an old friend to her, and extols the delights of the compensatory nap.

This series will also feature John Sutherland on the rich history of insomnia in literature; A L Kennedy on finding the nights too thrilling for sleep; poet Michael Symmons Roberts on poetry and insomnia; and actor Juliet Stevenson on why a creative life often means a life in search of sleep.

Producer: Justine Willett

First broadcast in October 2011.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b0159g9n)
Shabaka Hutchings at the City of London Festival

Jez Nelson presents saxophonist and BBC New Generation Artist Shabaka Hutchings at the City of London Festival. Hutchings is a key player across the UK jazz scene, appearing with artists as diverse as Polar Bear, big-band composer Django Bates and free-jazz exponent Evan Parker, as well as demonstrating the influence of Caribbean street music in his new band The Sons of Kemet. This concert reflects the variety of Hutchings' musical experiences, as he performs music by Ornette Coleman and Stravinsky as well as original material. He is joined in a one-off group by pianist Kit Downes, electronics artist Leafcutter John and two stalwarts of the British free-jazz scene - bass player John Edwards and Mark Sanders on drums.

Also on the programme, Steve Reich's 75th birthday is celebrated with an exploration of the influence of minimalism on jazz.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0159w84)
William Schuman (1910-1992)

Episode 2

As the USA found itself at war in the early 1940s, William Schuman wrote the first of a series of patriotic works that would cement his place with Copland and Bernstein as one of America's leading composers. Donald Macleod introduces a rare performance of his cantata "A Free Song" - the first-ever composition to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music - as well as his Fifth Symphony, written the same year. We'll also hear perhaps Schuman's most enduring and most-performed work - the charming "New England Triptych" for orchestra, and hear how this one-time pop song plugger became the President of one of the greatest music institutions in the world: the Juilliard School.


TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0159w86)
Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (1 of 4)

In the first of our concerts recorded last season as part of the series given by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York, there's a chance to hear Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Escher Quartet on home territory. Their concert includes two quartets by Schubert from towards the end of his short life.
The 'Quartettsatz' is a single movement, surely intended to be part of something longer but now well-established in the repertoire as a work in its own right. The Eschers follow this with Schubert's extraordinary final quartet, a score which is one of his most forward-looking and whose constant struggle between major and minor only resolves itself at the very last minute.

Schubert: Quartettsatz in C Minor D703
Schubert: String Quartet in G Major D887.


TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b0159w88)
BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales

Louise Fryer presents music from the closing concert from the orchestra's 2010-11 season at St. David's Hall, Cardiff, in June this year. Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer opens with Faure's elegant Pavane, heard here, as it was at the 1888 premiere, with added choral lines to a text by Count Robert de Montesquiou - who was a kind of French Oscar Wilde (the idea of using his words was suggested to Faure by his cousin, an influential society hostess, whose patronage was well worth having).

French violinist Olivier Charlier joins the orchestra for the violin concerto by Henri Dutilleux. Still composing today at the age of 94, Dutilleux's music reveals a strong link to the music of Debussy and Ravel. This concerto, "The tree of dreams" pushes out musical branches which multiply and renew the lyrical essence of the tree, in addition to reflecting a seasonal cycle.

The climax of the concert is Ravel's spectacular ballet score Daphnis and Chloe, written for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes - sensational and seductive, it is clothed in the finest colours, including a wordless chorus.

Also in today's programme, another ballet for Diaghilev, Poulenc's Les Biches, the most recent CD release from the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales. It's a parody of French fashionable society in a typically witty and brilliant suite of dances. Three include chorus, setting 17th century texts, but the underlying theme of sexual dynamics hasn't changed much in the intervening years.

We also turn the clock back 25 years through the BBC archives, to hear the BBC National Chorus of Wales just four years after they were founded. In concert at the 1987 Swansea Festival they join the orchestra for a cantata by Daniel Jones, an important figure in twentieth century Welsh music who deserves wider recognition. The conductor was Sir Charles Groves, a particular champion of Daniel Jones.


TUE 16:30 In Tune (b0159w8b)

Soprano Kathryn Rudge performs music by Mozart ahead of her role as Cherubino in Fiona Shaw's new production of the Marriage of Figaro at the English National Opera.

Midnight in Paris, Fiona Shaw, Madness, St Paul's Cathedral

Juliet Gardiner interviews Woody Allen about his latest comedy 'Midnight in Paris,' which has proved to be his most commercially successful film ever.

She also hears from director Fiona Shaw about her controversial staging of The Marriage Of Figaro at the ENO.

Juliet is joined by psychoanalyst Darian Leader and Niall Boyce of The Lancet, who will be discussing madness in society. From the popular press to TV soaps and films, the depiction of madness always borders on the extreme. But should we be turning our attention to discreet madness, shared by average citizens who will never come to psychiatric attention ?

Three hundred years ago this winter Parliament finally signed off as completed the new St Paul's Cathedral. The first Sunday service in the building had in fact been held six years earlier in 1705 when Queen Anne attended a service of thanksgiving for the Battle of Blenheim but it was 1711 before Christopher Wren was paid and the contract completed. The Rev Giles Fraser is today's Chancellor of St Paul's and reflects on what Christopher Wren had in mind as the function of the building. He created an architectural rejection of the fiery religion that had led thousands of men to butcher each other on the bloody battlefields of the English Civil War throughout his childhood.

Insomnia is one of the great obsessions of our time. From Van Gogh to Dickens, Winston Churchill to Margaret Thatcher, our writers, artists, thinkers and leaders seem to have been in constant battle with sleep. But in our current 24-hour culture, insomnia, this ability to switch off, has become something of a modern obsession for us all. In this series, five night owls explore their own battles with sleeplessness, the rituals and frustrations as well as the occasional joys of being awake when the rest of the world sleeps.

Today, literary critic and author John Sutherland on the rich history of insomnia in literature from Macbeth to Heathcliffe, and on the battle so many writers, including himself, seem to have with sleep.

John Sutherland is Emeritus Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College, London. He is an acclaimed literary critic and the author of many award-winning memoirs and books on literary criticism.

William Schuman (1910-1992)

Episode 3

William Schuman had one other great love in his life, aside from music: the swish of the bat and the roar of the crowd at the all-American ball game.

BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales

Louise Fryer presents performances by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales on their most recent tour of North and mid Wales. We visit St. Asaph cathedral in Denbighshire, for the 39th North Wales International Music Festival - the orchestra's visit has been a highlight of the festival since its foundation in 1972. This year conductor Leo Hussain makes his debut with the orchestra in Mozart's "Paris" symphony. The premiere in 1778 in the French capital made the composer so happy that he left the concert early, to pop over to the Palais Royal where he could enjoy a "large ice". Also in St. Asaph is a long-time friend of the orchestra, baritone Roderick Williams, marking the centenary of Gustav Mahler's death with his haunting "Songs of a Wayfarer".

The gifted Welsh cellist Thomas Carroll joins the orchestra in mid Wales, for a concert in Newtown, recorded just ten days ago. Shostakovich's first cello concerto is both an emotionally and technically challenging work, written for the great Russian cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

You can also hear the orchestra with the BBC National Chorus of Wales in their award-winning recording of Stanford's Songs of the Sea - with baritone Gerald Finlay and their much loved and much missed previous Principal Conductor, Richard Hickox.

Radio 3 Live in Concert

Berlioz, Mendelssohn

Live from The Lighthouse, Poole

Presented by Catherine Bott

For our first visit of the season to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's home hall, Principal Conductor, Kirill Karabits conducts a programme that begins with an operatic overture by Berlioz and ends with Prokofiev's wartime symphonic masterpiece. Between them comes one of the most popular of all violin concertos in which orchestra and conductor are joined by the renowned French violinist Renaud Capuçon.

The popularity of the overture that Berlioz wrote for Benvenuto Cellini has outlasted that of the opera from which it is taken by a long way - it's one of his most characteristic scores, full of long lyrical melody and colourful orchestration. Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is much loved, with its fiery opening and sparkling finale separated by the songful slow movement. Prokofiev's 5th Symphony, written during the 2nd World War, managed to make some subtle musical points whilst keeping the Soviet authorities happy - a masterful balancing act that produced one of the 20th-century's most powerful symphonies. Ukrainian-born Kirill Karabits has proved himself to be a fine conductor of colourful scores like these and his partnership with the outstanding French violinist Renaud Capuçon is bound to be an exciting one.

WED 20:10 Twenty Minutes (b00s7dr0)
Ryabov and Kozhin

"Two little boys were hunting crayfish off the wooden jetty. They were diving down under the steep bank and resurfacing, snorting out the water from their nostrils. They swam to the side of the jetty and, with triumphant cries, chucked their booty into a pail.

Ryabov waited until one of them, feeling the cold, climbed out of the lake. Hopping about on one foot, his head tilted to one side, he was getting the water out of his ear. Only then did the young boy notice Ryabov.

"Is it Grandfather you want?" he asked.

In Izrael Metter's short story, the young man with the briefcase has come to a rural spot outside Moscow, in order to confront the older Kozhin, who was a 'high-up' in the police force many years back. Ryabov has come to confront him about the fate of his own father - Kozhin was responsible. But, strangely, Ryabov is unsure how to handle the situation, despite having the advantage of surprise. So what will happen?

Izrael Metter was a leading novelist, short story writer and radio satirist after the second world war, and this tale was first published in 1976. He lived for most of his life in Leningrad.

Claire Tomalin, Forward Poetry Prize, Gerhard Richter, The Iliad

On tonight's Night Waves

Philip Dodd talks to Claire Tomalin about her new biography of Charles Dickens, a book that covers his impoverished childhood, his rise to fame and adoration as a young novelist, and the public breakdown of his marriage and ignominious treatment of his wife.

He hears from the winner of this year's Forward Poetry Prize, which is announced this evening.

Also, Richard Cork reviews a major retrospective of the German artist Gerhard Richter, who celebrates his 80th birthday this year. The exhibition at Tate Modern includes his controversial portraits of members of the Baader Meinhof terrorist group.

And why are we still so drawn to the Iliad? Homer's epic poem is the starting point for five publications out this autumn: three translations, a novel and to complete the lot an epic poem. So what can we learn from new approaches and responses to it, be they prose, poetry or translation? Madeline Miller whose first novel 'The Song of Achilles' is inspired by the Iliad discusses this with Stephen Mitchell who's also just published a new translation of the work. And, classics scholar Oliver Taplin casts his critical eye over all of the new texts.

The Darkest Hour

Episode 3

Insomnia is one of the great obsessions of our time. From Van Gogh to Dickens, Winston Churchill to Margaret Thatcher, our writers, artists, thinkers and leaders seem to have been in constant battle with sleep. But in our current 24-hour culture, insomnia, this ability to switch off, has become something of a modern obsession for us all. In this series, five night owls explore their own battles with sleeplessness, the rituals and frustrations as well as the occasional joys of being awake when the rest of the world sleeps.

Today: though she knows her caffeine-fuelled, all-night writing sessions must end, author A L Kennedy explains why she has always found the nights too thrilling and full of possibility for mere sleep.

William Schuman (1910-1992)

Episode 4

In 1961, William Schuman became President of New York's young Lincoln Center - and arguably the most powerful man in the arts in America. Yet it was to prove a turbulent experience.

Donald Macleod introduces the political machinations and wrangling that dogged Schuman's attempts to forge a new musical America. We'll also hear the work bearing Schuman's name that features most in concert halls across the world - his sparkling orchestration of Charles Ives' "Variations on 'America'".

The bulk of the programme is devoted to a Radio 3 premiere - of a truly unusual piece: the composer's "Concerto On Old English Rounds", for viola, women's chorus and orchestra. Written in 1974 (but sounding like it was written half a century earlier) and performed in this recording by Leonard Bernstein, it's hauntingly eerie - and utterly unique.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b0159wcf)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Handel: Saul

Louise Fryer presents a performance of one of Handel's most dramatic oratorios: Saul, recorded at the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea, in March. Baroque specialist Nicholas Kraemer, conducts a period-proportioned BBC National Orchestra of Wales, with the BBC National Chorus of Wales and many of the finest British singers of early music.

Handel's story begins just after David (Robin Blaze) slays the Philistine giant Goliath. King Saul (Roderick Willliams) grows jealous - first of David and then of his own son Jonathan (Andrew Staples) - with fatal consequences. The chorus reflect first the triumphant joy of the people of Israel, and then their despondency as they watch the downfall of their king.

Handel takes every opportunity to paint the action with impressive, martial choruses and heart-rending airs. There is even a touch of magic, as Saul, having given up on God, consults the Witch of Endor in a scene vividly conjured up by Handel's orchestration.

We'll also hear from Roderick Williams, Roderick Blaze and Andrew Staples on the challenges and rewards of what some consider Handel's greatest oratorio.

Live from The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Presented by Stuart Flinders

The BBC Philharmonic under the baton of Sir Andrew Davis perform some of the most well-known of Edward Elgar's works.

Andrew Davis - a long time champion of British music and particularly the music of Edward Elgar - will relish conducting a concert which explores some of the many faces of this most mercurial composer. It begins with the cascading strings of his Introduction and Allegro and continues with his autumnal Cello Concerto, played by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Nicolas Altstaedt, who makes his Bridgewater Hall debut. The second half of the concert breathes life into some of Elgar's family and friends through the musical portraits he sketched of them in his Enigma Variations - one of the most popular pieces of British orchestral music.

The Nobel Prize for Literature has just been announced and the winner is ..... Swedish poet Tomas Tranströmer. Anne McElvoy discusses Transtromer and his work.

Conor McPherson, is one of Ireland's most successful dramatists. From the haunting, elegiac The Weir in which drinkers trade ghost stories in a pub, to Shining City which revolves around the therapist-patient relationship, his plays are full of loss, lyrical confession and late-night binges. Now he jumps back in time in his new play The Veil - It's 1822, and Ireland is in an economic mess, with impoverished peasants facing the failure of their crops and unable to pay the rent to the Ascendancy landlords living in the "Big House".

With advances in gene therapy, artificial organ transplants and the like, the line between humanity and technology is becoming blurred. So much so that many experts are taking seriously the prospect of a post-human future.This has so alarmed sociology professor Steve Fuller that he has written a book called Humanity 2.0, in which he tries to defend the human race from what he refers to as a "pincer attack by biology and theology". We asked Steve to come to the Night Waves studio and state his case to novelist Toby Litt, who is actually looking forward to becoming a cyborg.

And Grayson Perry has created The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman at the British Museum. Turning the more usual convention of an artist responding to the collections in the museum on its head he has taken his own works into the museum and looked at how the work of artists and craftsmen throughout world history respond to him.

That's Night Waves with Anne McElvoy, Conor McPherson, Grayson Perry, Steve Fuller, Toby Litt and the Nobel Prize for Literature tonight at 10.00 pm.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0159xdf)
William Schuman (1910-1992)

Episode 5

As American music moved into the 1970 and 80s, William Schuman - born in the time of Gershwin and Cole Porter - increasingly seemed an anachronism, with his symphonies, concertos and quartets. Yet his creative fire was undiminished - in this final programme, Donald Macleod introduces a set of madrigals set to words from a 19th-century mail-order catalogue, and a virtuoso 'wine guessing game' aria from an opera to a libretto by Roald Dahl.


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0159xdh)
Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (4 of 4)

Three composers whose music is very much intertwined feature in this final selection from the concerts given by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in New York. A set of miniatures by Dvorak for three string instruments is followed by a Schubert song that has been called 'a masterpiece of hypnotic enchantment'. Brahms was hugely influenced by Schubert and in turn inspired Dvorak. His A Minor string quartet combines very personal reflection (it was composed with his violinist-friend Joachim very much in mind) with the influence of Hungarian folk-music. The performers are the members of one of Russia's most famous chamber-groups, the Borodin Quartet.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b0159xdp)
Britten Sinfonia at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Live from The Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Norwegian violinist Henning Kraggerud leads the Britten Sinfonia in music by Mozart, Piers Tattersall, Berio and Mahler's orchestration of Schubert's Death and the Maiden quartet.

Mozart's sunny concerto is followed by a new work by Piers Tattersall which ruminates on the playing and compositions of violinist Fritz Kreisler - nostalgic and 'cosy' according to Tattersall - as set against the troubled times in which it was written - between the two World Wars. After the interval Berio's Duos in which each movement is named in honour of a friend or fellow musician precedes Schubert's famous late string quartet arranged for string orchestra by fellow composer Mahler.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b0159xdr)
Verb New Voices from Birmingham

Ian McMillan takes to the stage in front of an audience at MAC in Birmingham to introduce the first of the Verb New Voices performances. Two emerging spoken word artists, Fatima Al Matar and Bohdan Piasecki premiere the pieces they've developed over the Summer. Novelist, biographer and playwright David Lodge first started exploring ideas around consciousness in his novel 'Thinks' ten years ago. Now, he's adapted the book for the stage and called it Secret Thoughts. For The Verb he reflects on what working in different genres has taught him about how his characters think. The memorist Sathnam Sanghera wrote about secrets, lies and family love in his memoir of his Wolverhampton childhood 'The Boy With The Topknot'. For The Verb he reads a commissioned piece about eating beef for the first time, by mistake. And, the writer Catherine O'Flynn champions Birmingham in fiction.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b0159xdt)
The Darkest Hour

Episode 5

Insomnia is one of the great obsessions of our time. From Van Gogh to Dickens, Winston Churchill to Margaret Thatcher, our writers, artists, thinkers and leaders seem to have been in constant battle with sleep. But in our current 24-hour culture, insomnia, this ability to switch off, has become something of a modern obsession.

In the last of this series, in which five night owls explore their own battles with sleeplessness, Juliet Stevenson looks back on her own struggle with insomnia, both as an actor and mother, and asks why a creative life often means a life in search of sleep.

Producer: Justine Willett

First broadcast in October 2011.
