Weinberg's The Passenger
Presented by Andrew McGregor

Only last year did it receive a full staging, when David Pountney directed it at last year's Bregenz Festival, 14 years after Weinberg's death.

A chance encounter between two women travelling at sea - one a former Auschwitz guard, the other ("The Passenger") a former prisoner - triggers memories which plunge them into a moral battle between guilt and denial, retribution and absolution.

Recorded at the 2010 Bregenz Festival.

The Parish Priest

Music, poetry and prose about the day to day life of the parish priest, with actors Celia Imrie and Michael Kitchen. Priests appear in major and minor roles in literature from Biblical times to the present day and frequently play a pivotal or catalyst part in the dramatic plot twists. Think of Mr Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, or Obadiah Slope in Trollope's Barchester novels. Many priests have themselves been poets, such as R.S. Thomas and John Donne, whose work is featured along with the view points of long suffering vicars' wives, often the power behind the parish throne. Priests are often portrayed in novels and poetry as distinctive characters who are either malevolent, self absorbed, objects of desire or saintly. Rarely are they ordinary, frequently they are comical. Music surrounds the life of the church and the programme features works by Handel, J.S. Bach, William Harris, James MacMillan and Saint-Saens , and includes poetry and prose by, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, John Pritchard (Bishop of Oxford) and Thomas Hardy.
Producer Helen Garrison.

Jacqui made this album "It Happens Quietly" in collaboration with her father and guides us though what was a difficult process of laying vocal tracks on the already recorded rhythm tracks from her dad, especially as you can hear him counting in the band at the start of the numbers, they leave the count in on the CD for one of the tracks in his memory.
Jacqui has the best of British jazz on this album including her musical director Malcolm Edmunston, Tim Garland on reeds, Steve Brown, drums, her brother Alec on bass and Ben Davis on cello on one track.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b015yh3z)
Herold, Adam and Delibes

The Beginnings of French Romantic Ballet

The Golden Age of Romantic French Ballet is a period which saw huge developments in the art form, from composers starting to write original music, to the role of female dancers taking more prominence. Tchaikovsky after hearing one such ballet from the period, Sylvia by Léo Delibes, said that "Had I known that music, I would not have written Swan Lake". Delibes had other huge successes, Coppélia and Lakmé, but his output may never have come to fruition without the encouragement of his mentor Adolphe Adam. Adam was another significant figure in the world of romantic works for the stage, especially his ballet Giselle. However Giselle, Sylvia and Coppélia were certainly not the beginnings of Romantic French Ballet, a position which has been allotted by some, to Ferdinand Herold. Composer of the Week looks at the life and works of Herold, Adam and Delibes.

In the first episode exploring the life and music of Ferdinand Herold, Donald Macleod follows the composer's early footsteps. With a string of successes in Paris notably as a pianist, and as a composer of piano concertos such as his second in E flat major, Herold soon won the Prix de Rome and would be setting off for Italy to soak up the Italian cultural heritage.

It was in Milan where Herold composed his first work for the stage, premiered in front of the entire court of the King of Naples, Joachim Murat. However, still required to satisfy the regulations of the Prix de Rome, he was obliged to send the odd composition back to Paris for assessment, such as his second Symphony.

Once Herold returned to Paris, his career focused upon music for the stage. It is in ballet and opera comique, that we see him make his greatest mark, such as La somnambule, considered by some as the prototype of 19th century romantic ballets.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b015yh43)
Postcards from Russia in Ulster

Episode 1

Presenter: Katie Derham

This week's Afternoon on 3 features recordings from the Ulster Orchestra's annual BBC Radio 3 Summer Invitation Concert Series, which runs for 5 weeks in Belfast's Ulster Hall. This year the theme was "Postcards from Russia" and the Ulster Hall rang out to the sounds of Russian greats such as Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Shostakovich.

This week features four symphonies by Tchaikovsky. Today his Symphony No. 1 - Winter Dreams. Writing a first symphony is a formidable task and one that caused Tchaikovsky huge stress and illness. Despite this troubled birth, Tchaikovsky looked back fondly on his early composition - "Although it is immature in many respects, it is essentially better and richer in content than many other more mature works."

Stravinsky's Jeu de Cartes is a neo-classical work. It was premiered by the American Ballet at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1937 and was the composer's first collaboration with George Balanchine. The characters in the ballet are the cards in a game of poker.

Shostakovich composed his expansive Second Cello Concerto for Mstislav Rostropovich in the spring of 1966. The composer had by this time endured the ritual of denunciation followed by rehabilitation several times and was now back in favour. He was honoured by State medals at his 60th birthday concert at which the concerto was premiered but Shostakovich was aware the post-Stalinist thaw might well be shortlived.

The impresario Serge Diaghilev heard new works by the young St Petersburg composer, Igor Stravinsky, in February 1909 and this resulted in the historic commission to compose the musical score to choreographer Michel Fokine's new ballet, The Firebird, to be performed in Paris in during the spring and summer of 1910. The ballet is based on the Russian fairytale of Ivan Tsarevich. A young prince uses a magic feather given to him by the Firebird to break the spell of the evil monster Kaschei and set free a group of princesses - one of which he marries. It is one of the definitive works of the 20th century.


MON 16:30 In Tune (b015yh45)

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b015yh49)
Margaret Atwood, Civility, Ali Soufan

Margaret Atwood discusses her lifelong relationship with science-fiction, stretching from her days as child reader in the 1940s and continuing as a writer and reviewer. But despite her affinity for the form, she is adamant that The Handmaid's Tale and her other dystopian novels are not sci-fi.

A new report called 'Charm Offensive - Cultivating civility in 21st Century Britain' is released today from The Young Foundation. It suggests that civility is widely debated but ill understood, and that such debate is often grounded in lazy generalities about social decline. How can we re-introduce civility into the daily public and private discourse? Or was it ever thus?

Ali H. Soufan was thrust by a strange series of coincidences into the forefront of the so called 'war on terror.' As one of very few Arab speaking agents in the FBI he was despatched immediately to Yemen eleven years ago on October 12th when the American warship USS Cole was attacked by Al Quaeda suicide bombers. What Soufan learnt during his investigations into that attack could have changed the course of contemporary American history if the various security agencies facing the world had simply shared the information that he and others were sending home.


MON 22:45 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 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b015yh4k)
The Wayne Shorter Quartet

Jez Nelson presents the Wayne Shorter Quartet in their first UK performance for several years. Shorter is one of the most renowned saxophonists and jazz composers of the last half a century, making his name with Art Blakey's Messengers and Miles Davis's second quintet before co-founding seminal jazz-fusion group Weather Report. His acoustic quartet of the last 11 years has earned huge critical acclaim, especially for its live performances, breaking new ground in its embrace of energetic, free dialogue within Shorter's complex compositions. Alongside him are pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade.

Herold, Adam and Delibes

Fame at Last for Herold

After hearing the ballet Sylvia, Tchaikovsky said that "Had I known that music, I would not have written Swan Lake." Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of French ballet masters' Herold, Adam and Delibes

International success arrived at last for the composer Ferdinand Herold, with his works Zampa and Le Pré aux clercs. However it was in the world of ballet where Herold was something of a revolutionary. Disregarding the existing tradition of rehashing popular tunes from the day to create a ballet score, Herold was quite keen to compose more original music. One of his ballets is still very popular today, La Fille mal gardée.

In the audience for Herold's last great success Le Pré aux clercs, was his friend and fellow composer Adolphe Adam. Adam considered that in the world of ballet, Herold had no rival, although he would go on to outshine Herold with his ballet Giselle. After Herold's early death, Adam was steadily developing his own career in music, including one of his biggest theatrical successes from the time, Le chalet.


TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b015ynsh)
Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall

Tatjana Vasiljeva, Etsuko Hirose

Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall.

Tatjana Vasiljeva, cello, and Etsuko Hirose, piano.
Stravinsky: Suite Italienne.
Prokofiev: Cello Sonata in C major.
Tchaikovsky: Pezzo Capriccioso

Russian cellist Tatjana Vasiljeva has built a formidable reputation as one of the leading cellists of today. While she has won many competitions and awards, it was as winner of the First Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris at the 7th Concours de Violoncelle Rostropovitch in 2001 - the first Russian to be awarded the top prize in the history of the competition - and as 'Revelation from Abroad' at the 2005 Victoires de la Musique Classique that Tatjana first received international recognition.

In this programme from the Ulster Hall in Belfast, Tatjana is accompanied by Japanese pianist Etsuko Hirose, whose first prize at the Martha Argerich Competition in 1999 marked the point of departure for her solo career.

First up is Stravinsky's Suite Italienne for cello and piano - an arrangement of several movements from his ballet Pulcinella (1919-1920). In Pulcinella, Stravinsky had taken works attributed to the early eighteenth-century Italian composer Giovanni Battista Pergolesi and effectively rewritten them by cutting, altering, and transforming the music into his own style. The result was a work which was, in Stravinsky's words, "the epiphany through which the whole of my late work became possible."

Prokofiev's Cello Sonata in C follows - after the premiere of which by Mstislav Rostropovich and Sviatoslav Richter in 1950, Prokofiev's close friend Nikolai Miaskovsky's wrote: "Yesterday Rostropovich and Richter openly played the Cello Sonata by Prokofiev in concert - a miraculous piece of music!".


TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b015ynsk)
Postcards from Russia in Ulster

Episode 2

Presenter: Katie Derham

This week's Afternoon on 3 features recordings from the Ulster Orchestra's annual BBC Radio 3 Summer Invitation Concert Series which runs for 5 weeks in Belfast's Ulster Hall. This year the theme was "Postcards from Russia" and today's programme features music by Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky and Arensky.

Shostakovich's piano concertos are light in nature and are not the searching, personal works that his string concertos might be considered to be. He composed the Piano Concerto No. 2 for his son Maxim, who gave the first performance on his 19th birthday on 10 May 1957. This is the last, and most significant, of the pedagogical works Shostakovich wrote for his children.

This week's Afternoon on 3 features four symphonies by Tchaikovsky. Today his Symphony No. 2 - Little Russian. Little Russia was an affectionate name for Ukraine and the symphony includes several Ukrainian folk tunes. Tchaikovsky began the work on the symphony while visiting his sister, Alexandra on her husband Lev Davidov's family estate near Kiev, the capital of Ukraine: he heard the people working on the estate sing the tunes he used in the symphony.

Tchaikovsky described Anton Arensky, the teacher of both Scriabin and Rachmaninov, as a man of remarkable gifts. His second symphony is seen as a synthesis between the opposing musical schools in Russia: the Moscow and St Petersburg groups.

Shostakovich's Ninth Symphony is the last of his three wartime Symphonies. After his Seventh (Leningrad), op.60 (1941) and Eighth Symphony, op.65 (1943), it was assumed that he would write a big Ninth Symphony in praise of Stalin and celebrating victory. Shostakovich found this expectation a huge burden. What finally became the Ninth Symphony was quickly written in the summer of and is an upbeat but purely abstract piece - music that Stalin would have found difficult to understand...

Lynne Ramsay, Man Booker Prize 2011, The Village, New Egyptian Novels

Matthew Sweet meets Lynne Ramsay whose new film adaptation of Lionel Shriver's controversial novel We Need to Talk about Kevin, starring Tilda Swinton, is released this week. Winner of the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2005 We Need to Talk about Kevin is the profoundly disturbing story of a boy who, shortly before his 16th birthday, kills seven classmates in a high school massacre.

There's a review of the winner of The Man Booker prize which will be announced just before the programme goes on air

Matthew and guests discuss the place of the village in the British psyche and why it represents both a rural idyll and a site of horror, as witnessed in the Gothic literature of Anne Radcliffe and Arthur Machen and the TV series The League Of Gentlemen

And we look at three new Egyptian novels in translation. They are written by Khaled Al Khamissi - novelist, TV producer, and former publisher, Ahmed Khaled Towfik - the Arab world's most prominent and bestselling author of fantasy and horror genres ( in addition to his day job as a medical professor at Egypt's Tanta University,) and a first novel by Ahmed Mourad, a photographer and graphic designer who has won several awards for his short films.

The Robin

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 (b015yp9z)
Herold, Adam and Delibes

Adam's Giselle and Le corsair

After hearing the ballet Sylvia, Tchaikovsky said that "Had I known that music, I would not have written Swan Lake." Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of French ballet masters' Herold, Adam and Delibes

Try as he might, one night Richard Wagner just couldn't get to sleep. There was this tune which just wouldn't stop going around in this head. It came from the opera comique Le Postillon de Lonjumeau by Adolphe Adam, which brought the composer international success.

Adam's fame spread, and he was soon invited to the court of Tsar Nicholas I of Russia, where he staged a number of his works. On a roll with success, and now back in Paris, Adam would go on to compose the work which he is best known for today, the ballet Giselle - a work he composed in lightening speed in just three weeks. The ballet represented progress in the way it relied more on female dancers in the main roles, as opposed to men as in previous traditions.

With success there was the inevitable low period, but this was due to an argument with the director of the Opera Comique, who swore he'd never have another work by Adam on his stage. At huge financial risk, Adam opened his own opera house in Paris, but with the 1848 revolution, Adam was completely ruined. However success came again, and with financial security, in the form of his opera Si j'étais roi, and the ballet Le corsair.


WED 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b015ypb1)
Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall

Alexandra Soumm, Julien Quentin

Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall.

Alexandra Soumm, violin; Julien Quentin, piano.

Mozart: Violin Sonata in B flat, K378.
Strauss: Violin Sonata.

Mozart wrote his Violin Sonata in B flat, K378, when he was in his mid-twenties: part of a set of violin sonatas that were among the composer's first publications, and the first to be published in Vienna. Moscow-born Radio 3 New Generation Artist Alexandra Soumm begins her programme with this elegant three-movement work, accompanied by French pianist Julien Quentin.

Richard Strauss was in his early 20s when he completed the Sonata in E flat and, although he went on to compose for a further 60 years, he never returned to chamber music. The grandiose conception of the two parts in this work demands almost concerto-like strength and projection from the players. A powerful close to today's Lunchtime Concert.


WED 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b015ypb3)
Postcards from Russia in Ulster

Episode 3

Presenter: Katie Derham

The final offering this week from the Ulster Orchestra's annual BBC Radio 3 Summer Invitation Concert Series, "Postcards from Russia." Today's programme features Prokofiev's Second Piano Concerto and Tchaikovsky's Third Symphony.

Prokofiev completed his Piano Concerto No. 2 in April 1913, while he was still a student at the St Petersburg Conservatory. He premiered it in the same year but this version which "left listeners frozen with fright, hair standing on end" was lost in a fire during the 1917 Revolution. Prokofiev reconstructed the work from his sketches and re-premiered it in Paris in 1824, where, yet again, it failed to please the audience. It is impossible to know how different the reconstructed work is from the original but Prokofiev claims to have taken advantage of everything he had learned during the ten years: "It was so completely rewritten," he wrote to friends in Moscow, "that it might almost be considered No. 4." Prokofiev had written his third piano concerto in the intermitting years - the work with which toured extensively - and he hardly ever played Piano Concerto no. 2 again.

Today's featured Tchaikovsky symphony is the Symphony No. 3 in D major Op. 29, "Polish" which was composed in between two of his most popular works: the First Piano Concerto and Swan Lake. The nickname "Polish" is a bit of a red herring. While the Second Symphony is known as "Little Russian" because it makes prominent use of Ukrainian folk tunes, the Third features a polonaise as its finale but as a stylised dance rhythm rather than an expression of national colour.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall

Mozart, Turnage

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Mozart's final symphony, the Jupiter, is wonderfully exuberant work, with both turbulent and lyrical themes leading up to a glorious finale. Mark-Anthony Turnage wrote On Opened Ground ten years ago for the viola soloist Yuri Bashmet. Today's star violist Lawrence Power takes on the role of the brooding protagonist.

The final work has one of the most famous openings of all, after which Strauss takes his listeners on a wickedly exciting, touchingly tender and intensely dramatic journey, all inspired by the philisophical writings of Nietsche.

Strauss: Also sprach Zarathustra

Strauss's famous sunrise opening of Also sprach Zarathustra is rather better known than the book which inspired it: Nietzsche's dense, philosophical novel of the same name. Stephen Johnson looks at what Strauss made of Nietzsche's deeply complex, and controversial ideas, and how he wielded this philosopher's grand vision for humanity into the questioning, and strangely unresolved musical work that follows.

Ernest Hemingway, The Liberty of Servants

Juliet Gardiner reads The Letters of Ernest Hemingway Volume 1 1907 - 1922.

There's a new book by Princeton Professor Maurizio Viroli called 'The Liberty of Servants: Berlusconi's Italy.' Viroli suggests that a people can be unfree even though they are not oppressed, and that this condition arises from being subject to the arbitrary or enormous power of people like Silvio Berlusconi. As Italy begins to follow Greece into uncharted financial waters we discuss whether the kind of society that the TV mogul and prime minister has helped to create is contributing to the ongoing Euro disaster.


WED 22:45 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.

Herold, Adam and Delibes

Delibes and Coppelia

After hearing the ballet Sylvia, Tchaikovsky said that "Had I known that music, I would not have written Swan Lake." Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of French ballet masters' Herold, Adam and Delibes

Adam, like his friend Herold, died young, and it wasn't for another good ten years that one of his pupils would take his place in developing the French Romantic ballet tradition - Léo Delibes. Delibes showed very little promise as a music student, and earned his living from playing as a church organist. One of his works for choir and organ is his simple setting of the Messe brève.

Delibes also held a job as accompanist at the Theâtre Lyrique, so he was soon following in his tutor's footsteps composing for the stage. For a period of about 14 years Delibes would earn his way, whilst develop his composing skills, writing charming little operettas, and also the odd song requested by his publishers, such as Le Rossignol.

Recognition came his way in the form of a gold medal, and a diamond pin from the Emperor Napoleon III. The opportunity to compose for the ballet soon then presented itself, and La source, ou Naila was born. However, his next ballet is the one Delibes is best known for today, despite a rather cool reception at the time - Coppélia.


THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b015yprp)
Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall

Francois-Frederic Guy

Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall.

François-Frédéric Guy, piano.

Liszt: from Harmonies Poétiques et Religieuses: Bénédiction de Dieu dans la Solitude; Hymne de l'enfant au reveil; Funérailles.
Beethoven: Piano Sonata in C minor, Op 13 (Pathétique).

François-Frédéric Guy was launched on his international career when, in 1999, BBC Radio 3 selected him for their New Generation Artists scheme.

He begins today's programme with three of the 10 pieces that make up Liszt's Harmonies poétiques et religieuses that were brought together as a cycle between 1845-52. They are quite different from what you might usually expect from Liszt. Inspired by the poetry of Lamartine, these are Liszt's only piano works based on purely religious themes. The pieces were apparently of such significance to the composer that he continued to play them privately long after he retired from the concert stage.

Particularly renowned for his performances of Beethoven, François-Frédéric Guy concludes today's Lunchtime Concert with Beethoven's Piano Sonata in C minor, known as the Pathétique. It was written in 1798 at a time when Beethoven was beginning to become aware of his encroaching deafness and yet was leading a relatively contented domestic life.


THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b015yprr)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Rossini - Adelaide di Borgogna

Opera Matinee from the Pesaro Rossini Opera Festival 2011.
Katie Derham presents Rossini's opera in two acts, Adelaide di Borgogna, was premiered in December 1827 - a very busy and productive year for Rossini, during which he also composed La Cenerentola, La Gazza Ladra and Armida.

Giovanni Schmidt based his libretto for Adelaide di Borgogna on a historical event that took place in the 10th century by writing a straightforward plot with uncomplicated characters because he was making allowances for Rossini's hectic schedule.

The opera's story revolves around the difficulties of the Princess Adelaide, daughter of Rodolfo di Borgogna and the widow of Lotario, the King of Italy who died young in the year 905. Her claim to the throne is being thwarted by Berengario (into whose hands the government of the kingdom had already fallen some time before), he has managed by stealth to succeed the deceased King. Berengario wants to secure the kingdom for his family and orders the princess to marry his son, Adelberto. Adelaide goes to the Emperor Ottone promising him her hand and the rights to the crown if he will rescue her from the scheming Berengario's plan. The final scene shows the return of Emperor Ottone and his army to the fortress of Canossa: the Emperor is drawn in on a triumphal car followed by Adelberto and Berengario in chains, while the people, rejoicing, throw flowers and laurel wreaths and applaud the royal marriage.

The vocal demands of this opera might explain why it is so rarely performed: the part of Adelaide requires a florid lyric soprano, virtuoso singing is demanded of the mezzo-soprano or contralto performing Ottone, a tenor with a wide range is needed for Adelberto and a basso-cantante for Berengario.

Rossini: Adelaide di Borgogna.

Ottone ..... Daniela Barcellona, mezzo-soprano
Eurice ..... Jeannette Fischer, soprano
Adelaide ..... Jessica Pratt, soprano
Adelberto ..... Bogdan Mihai, baritone

The Butterfly

From Meadowbrown to Painted Ladies, the allure of butterflies has traditionally been strong.

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 (b015yrj7)
Herold, Adam and Delibes

Lakme and Sylvia

After hearing the ballet Sylvia, Tchaikovsky said that "Had I known that music, I would not have written Swan Lake." Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of French ballet masters' Herold, Adam and Delibes

In this final episode, Donald Macleod journeys through Delibes's final years, and considers how far the developments in Romantic French ballet had come. Delibes had already composed Coppélia, but his next ballet, Sylvia, was a radical departure in Delibes's symphonic approach to the score. Even Tchaikovsky considered the work a total masterpiece, and felt it cast his Swan Lake into the shadows.

In his last few years, Delibes was presented with numerous honours, including being made a Knight of the Legion of Honour. He also became composition professor at the Paris Conservatoire, despite his own admission that he knew little about fugue or counterpoint. With the vogue during this time for things Spanish, Delibes composed his popular song Les filles de Cadix, where the coquettish young girls of Cadiz want to know if their waists look slim.

Delibes at the very end of his life, was busy writing a grand opera. His previous opera Lakmé had not been the success he'd hoped for, and he considered the way forward to be some hybrid of comic opera and Wagnerian music-drama. He died having not completed the work. Whereas Lakmé, desipte its original reception, has gone on to be one of Delibes most successful and popular works.


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b015yrj9)
Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall

Sofya Gulyak

Summer Chamber Music in the Ulster Hall.
Sofya Gulyak, piano.

Rachmaninov: Prelude, Op.3 No.2; Etude-tableau, Op.39 No.5: Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Op.42.

Prokofiev: Piano Sonata No. 6.

A Russian multi-award winning pianist, Sofya Gulyak became the first female winner of the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2009. She begins today's all-Russian concert with three contrasting works by Rachmaninov - the popular Prelude Op.3 No.2, the demanding Etude-tableau Op.39 No.5 and the composer's last work for piano, the Variations on a Theme of Corelli Op. 42.

Sofya concludes the programme with Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No.6, which many consider to be the jewel of the so-called "War Sonata" trilogy (Sonatas 6 to 8). It is large in scale, dramatic and deep in its expressive range.


FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b015yrjc)
Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev

Presented by Katie Derham
An afternoon in the company of Russian perforners performing Russian showpieces, symphonies and ballet music.

No other play by Shakespeare has inspired as many composers as Romeo and Juliet and today's programmes features responses by two great Russian composers. With the Fantasy Overture, Tchaikovsky found his voice and penned his first masterpiece. Shakespeare's story and Tchaikovsky's musical portrayal are perfectly matched - the famous love theme in particular is one of his boldest and most beautiful themes; and the programme ends with one of Prokofiev's most popular scores, the Suite from his ballet Romeo and Juliet.

Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence was originally written for string sextet and reflects the time he spent Italy in 1889 while working on the Queen of Spades.

Working under Shostakovich's supervision, Rudolf Barshai transformed Shostakovich's Eighth String Quartet into a Chamber Symphony (for string orchestra). Shostakovich composed the Eighth Quartet in 1960 during a visit to war-torn Dresden, and this triggered a response to Shostakovich's memories of his own shattered Leningrad (St Petersburg).

In May 1892, Tchaikovsky began work on a projected Symphony in E flat, but complained to a friend that work wasn't going at all smoothly. However by October he informed a former pupil that the work was completed and only required orchestration. Tchaikovsky began soon afterwards, but stopped after 33 pages and decided to transform the symphony into the rarely performed single movement Piano Concerto no.3. The original sketches were discovered many years later by the Russian musicologist and composer Semyon Bogatyryev, who reconstructed the work in the 1950s.


FRI 16:30 In Tune (b015yrjf)
Friday - Suzy Klein

Allan and Sophie perform excerpts from the opera live in the In Tune studio accompanied on harpsichord by Chris Bucknall.

Paying the Ferryman

In anticipation of tonight's concert of Haydn's 'Orfeo ed Euridice', Paul Farley considers poetic treatments of the River Styx and the cadaverous figure of Charon, ferryman to the Underworld. He travels to Merseyside to take two rather different kinds of ferry, in the company of poets Jeffrey Wainwright and Deryn Rees-Jones. Together they explore poetry's fascination with the voyage to Hades and with the handful of mythical characters who've made the return journey.

Produced by Emma Harding.
