SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b0167s05)
Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore

Sir Despard Murgatroyd has inherited a witch's curse from centuries previously, compelling each baronet of Ruddigore to commit a daily crime, or die in agony. So when his long-lost elder brother, Robin Oakapple, is exposed as the rightful heir to the title, it's a huge relief. Despard atones for his previous 10 years of evil acts, and marries Mad Margaret, while Robin's troubles start when his weak attempts at committing crimes drag his ancestors back from the dead. However, with a Gilbertian twist, all ends happily when the curse is rescinded. Ruddigore, or The Witch's Curse, one of the comic operas that Gilbert and Sullivan wrote for the Savoy Theatre, contains some of the most engaging music Sullivan ever wrote, and under John Wilson's baton it should be a riveting performance of Jo Davies's production. Richard Burkhard takes the role of Sir Despard Murgatroyd, along with Grant Doyle as Robin Oakapple.

SUN 20:00 Sunday Feature (b0167s6y)
Hungary's Soul: Liszt and Gypsy Music

Presented by George Szirtes

Hungary has become synonymous with gypsy music. In the 200th Anniversary year of Liszt's birth, the Hungarian-born poet George Szirtes set off to Budapest to follow Liszt's book on gypsy music, to discover what might be meant by gypsy music by other people and what it is about this music that is or is not Hungarian.

Liszt's book (1859) is the starting point of George Szirtes's search that takes in Hungary's turbulent history, through two world wars and communism to now. George Szirtes speaks to prominent gypsy musicians like violinist Roby Lakatos and cimbalom player Kalman Balogh, and also the internationally renowned folk singer Marta Sebestyen.

He also travels to the north-east region of the Great Hungarian Plain, where there are many rural Roma villages and where he speaks to members of the band Parno Graszt to find out about rural gypsy music today. The programme includes original field recordings of Parno Graszt which were recorded in one of the band members' home, as well as a rich mix of recorded music.

In Budapest, George Szirtes speaks to Kodaly's last-living student, Balint Sarosi, Peter Szuhay, who is the curator of an exhibition on Liszt and Gypsy Music, and an expert on Roma life at the Hungarian Academy, Katalin Kovalcsik. He also speaks to Agnes Osztolykan, who is the first female Roma representative in the Hungarian Parliament and a recent winner of the International Women of Courage Award.

Before travelling to Budapest, he speaks to concert pianist and Liszt expert, Leslie Howard and the world-music writer, Simon Broughton.

The programme ends with a newly commissioned poem by George Szirtes that reflects on his personal search for Liszt's gypsy music.

Producer: Elizabeth Arno

First broadcast in October 2011.


SUN 20:45 World Routes (b0167s70)
Carlos Orozco Session

Lucy Duran introduces a session by the Venezuelan harp virtuoso Carlos Orozco. On a rare UK visit, he performs the lively "joropo" dance music found in the vast central plains of Venezuela. He is joined by a 3-piece band which includes his son Caryas, a leading exponent of the Venezuelan maracas. Producer James Parkin.

Carlos Orozco and his band are in London for Viva Venezuela, a major celebration of dance at London's Palladium, in aid of the British Red Cross. Joropo is one of the dance forms that will feature, and, it is performing the music that accompanies this dance that has made Carlos Orozco his name. Joropo is from the Arabic, xärop, a sweet liquid.
In modern joropo the dancers mark the rhythm stamping on the floor. The man hits the floor with the full force of his whole foot, whilst the woman responds in silence, shuffling her feet in a series of intricately sweeping, high speed patterns. The man and woman never lose touch with each other. The joyful music that Carlos and his band of virtuosic musicians play is fast, infectious, and above all, uplifting.

Also in the programme Lucy talks to Fairouz Nishanova about the Aga Khan Music Initiative.


SUN 21:45 Drama on 3 (b0167s72)
Mogadishu

Vivienne Franzmann's cutting-edge play explores the consequences of an assault on a white female teacher by a troubled black student and her well-meaning but misguided attempt to protect him.

Mogadishu was originally produced at the Manchester Royal Exchange in 2011 and won both the Bruntwood Award for Writing and The George Devine Prize for 'Most Promising Playwright'. The critics called it "A startling debut", "A tough, gripping spectacle", "The play of the year? Quite possibly".

As the school investigates an allegation of physical and racial abuse, the teacher becomes entangled in a mesh of legal requirements and formal processes that threaten her family stability and her career.

Franzmann - a former teacher herself - has adapted the play for radio and uses multiple perspectives on the incident to show how formal procedure and protocol can override common sense and professional judgement.

Mogadishu unfolds in a series of actions, reversals and counter-reversals with sharp dialogue and fast-pacing. The language of contemporary teenagers is presented with considerable authenticity revealing them to be complex, dysfunctional, funny and vulnerable.

The play contains the strongest language and some racist insults.

SUN 23:15 Jazz Line-Up (b0167s74)
Stan Sulzmann Band

In this unique concert for Jazz Line-Up, Julian Joseph presents Jazz Line-Up from the BBC, Maida Vale studios in London, where Stan Sulzmann plays a special concert with his band Neon, featuring himself on Reeds, Kit Downes, Piano, Jim Hart, Vibes and Tim Giles, Drums.
In the second half of the concert he augments the band with Mike Walker on Guitar, Dave Whitford on Bass, James Allsop on Bass Clarinet and a very special appearance form UK British trumpet legend Kenny Wheeler.

Stan Sulzmann is a well-known and respected figure on the British Jazz scene who has always strived to remain contemporary. He emerged in the 1960s with a crop of talented musicians including Graham Collier, John Taylor, Kenny Wheeler and Gordon Beck. As recording artist bandleader and educator, Stan is a young veteran, possibly an oxymoron, but eminence is a difficult thing to put into words. He's an artist of great dignity who is often the first choice saxophonist for many of the emerging stars of the British contemporary jazz scene. Gwilym Simcock is a massive fan, advocate and collaborator and his Neon quartet co-led with some of the finest young musicians playing in Britain today, is a clear example of how revered a musician Stan Sulzmann is.

Finnish Composers

Founding Fathers (and Later Echoes)

Sibelius has been the dominating figure in the history of Finnish music - but this week Donald Macleod is looking at other composers who have contributed to making this one of the most musically active small nations in the world. Linguistically and geographically isolated, Finland has learnt to communicate with the wider world through music, but its classical tradition was founded relatively recently, in the 1880s. With the help of Tim Howell, author of 'After Sibelius', Donald explores the work of Sibelius' contemporaries as Finland was emerging as a State, and some of those who took on the reins afterwards...

In today's programme he looks at the first figures in Finnish music: Bernhard Crusell and Frederick Pacius - 'the German father of Finnish music', and one of the latest: Magnus Lindberg.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0167sg7)
Veronika Eberle, Shai Wosner

Live from Wigmore Hall in London.

BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Veronika Eberle (violin) and Shai Wosner (piano) perform music by two 20th century giants Debussy and Bartok. Veronika Eberle's introduction by Sir Simon Rattle to a packed Salzburg Festpielhaus at the 2006 Salzburg Easter Festival, in a performance of the Beethoven concerto with the Berliner Philharmoniker, brought her to international attention. Since then her career has flourished and she has a demanding international schedule. For this recital she teams up with a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Shai Wosner who is renowned for his versatility as a soloist and chamber musician. Debussy's short and final composition - his violin sonata - is paired with Bartok's Violin Sonata No.1 written a few years later.

Presented by Sarah Walker

Rex Lawson, pianola

Flights of Fancy

Live from St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, Catherine Bott presents a concert which brings together human and mechanised forms of musical expression as the voices of the BBC Singers join forces with that most ingenious and sophisticated of automated instruments, the pianola.

At the heart of the programme, Gabriel Jackson's new work celebrates the history of manned flight - from mythological Icarus to the 20th century's forays into space. It's a piece inspired, says the composer, by the fact "that the (brief) heyday of the pianola coincided with the pioneering years of aviation" and takes full advantage of its "almost limitless ability to play a lot of notes very quickly and its capacity for articulating complex multi-layered textures (notated on up to six staves)". In the rest of the concert, master-pianolist Rex Lawson performs solos from some of the vast repertoire of original works and transcriptions for the instrument, and the BBC Singers continue the avation theme in flight-related works by Eric Whitacre and Matthew Orlovich.

Eric Whitacre: Leonardo dreams of his flying machine
Igor Stravinsky Etude for pianola
Percy Grainger: Shepherd's Hey
Matthew Orlovich: Aviation
Conlon Nancarrow: Study no 6
Gabriel Jackson: Airplane Cantata (BBC commission; world premiere)

- interval (20') -
During the interval, Rex Lawson chats to Catherine Bott about the history of the pianola, its (often misunderstood) nature as a musical instrument, and some of the composers inspired to write for it - right up to our own day.

Maurice Rosenthal: Papillons
Sergei Rachmaninov: Prelude in D major (op 23/4); Prelude in E flat major (op 23/6)
Johannes Brahms: Liebeslieder (op 52).


MON 22:00 Night Waves (b0167sh0)
The Help, Advisors, Nathan Wolfe, Building the Revolution

On Night Waves tonight, we review the civil rights film The Help and discuss the controversy it has been causing in the United States, with some African Americans calling it patronising and insulting.

As the political kerfuffle surrounding the role of advisors, special advisors and lobbyists continues to rumble on in Westminster, Rana Mitter talks to Melissa Lane, Professor of Politics at Princeton University about what the Classic Texts have to say on the matter. She draws on the works of Seneca, Erasmus and Castiglione as well as her own experience as an adviser to President Oscar Arias of Costa Rica.

We speak to the biologist Nathan Wolfe, who has been called 'the Indiana Jones of the virus world' about his new book The Viral Storm: The Dawn of a New Pandemic Age.

And we review a new exhibition of Soviet art and architecture at the Royal Academy, that focuses on Russian avant-garde architecture from the 1920's and 30's.

Harpsichordist David Wright performs music by Bach, Handel and Ligeti live in the In Tune studio ahead of concerts at St Martin in the Fields, London.

Olivia Tiomkin Douglas and conductor Richard Kaufmann join Sean ahead of a concert at the Barbican with the London Symphony Orchestra celebrating the film music of Dimitri Tiomkin (1894- 1979), one of Hollywood's most distinguished composers. As the composer behind such memorable films as Lost Horizon, It's a Wonderful Life, High Noon, and The Alamo, Tiomkin enjoyed an enviable position in the American film industry. In the course of his career, Tiomkin received nearly two dozen Academy Award score and song nominations over five consecutive decades.

Schleiermacher, Beethoven

Presented by Louise Fryer

Live from the Barbican Hall

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is conducted by its Music Director Riccardo Chailly in two of Beethoven's Symphonies, the 1st and the 7th. They begin their concert with a recent work which uses Beethoven's 1st as its jumping-off point - 'Bann. Bewegung mit Beethovens Erster' by Steffen Schleiermacher.

The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra has been playing Beethoven's symphonies since the time that the ink was wet on the manuscript - the orchestra, the oldest in the world, can trace its history back to the middle of the 18th-century. Now they bring their recent Beethoven project to London's Barbican - performances of his symphonies preceded by recent works which take the music of Beethoven as their inspiration. Steffen Schleiermacher, now in his early 50's, was born in a town not too far from Leipzig (Halle, Handel's birthplace) and is a noted pianist and conductor as well as a composer who intriguingly combines the traditional and the modern.

WED 20:10 Twenty Minutes (b0167v0d)
Fiddler in the Tower

Award-winning British violinist Daniel Hope visits the Tower of London with violin, and tells the little-known story of German/Brazilian Fernando Buschman (1890-1915) the virtuoso violinist and engineer held and executed there when charged with espionage in World War One.

Buschman's wartime existence comprised of a string of still-born entrepreneurial adventures from aircraft design to cheese and vegetable export, with, allegedly, spying on the Royal Navy also thrown in! His big love was his violin and when, in 1915, he was arrested and condemned to face a firing squad at the Tower he asked for his instrument to be brought to his cell. The night before his execution Buschman played away, the violin echoing and keening round the Tower.

In the Chapel of the Tower at night-time, beside the tombs of famed Tower victims Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Sir Thomas More, Daniel performs the music Buschman played, tries to fathom what motivated this man and imagines himself facing those final fated hours.

* This is the first time the story has been told on the BBC.

* Daniel performs especially for the programme the Sarabande from Bach's D Minor Partita BWV1004, Braga's Angel's Serenade, and music from Leoncavallo's Pagliacci - all works Buschman had with him at the time.

* Daniel interviews Bridget Clifford of the Royal Armouries at the Tower of London, and Dr Nicholas Hiley of the University of Kent puts in context German espionage at the beginning of World War I.

* Daniel Hope is still searching for Buschman's violin and would welcome any clues.

Philharmonia - Bartok

Presented by Catherine Bott

Live from the Royal Festival Hall

Continuing their exploration of the life and work of Hungarian composer Béla Bartók the Philharmonia orchestra and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen perform music from his fairy-tale ballet The Wooden Prince and the Second Piano Concerto with pianist Yefim Bronfman.

This orchestral concert begins with just three players as soloists perform Bartok's jazz-inspired Contrasts written for American clarinettist Benny Goodman. Next, a tale of enchantment and infatuation as Bartok's music to the ballet The Wooden Prince tells a story of a princess who falls in love with the wooden effigy of a handsome prince rather than the prince himself. After the interval, there's the folk-inspired Dance Suite followed by the Second Piano Concerto with a soloist who has already recorded an award-winning disc of all three Bartok concertos with tonight's conductor.

Jeanette Winterson

Philip Dodd speaks to the novelist Jeanette Winterson about her new memoir, 'Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?'

In 1985 Jeanette Winterson's novel, 'Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit', told the story of a young girl adopted by a Pentecostal couple. Written when Winterson was 25, it won the Whitbread First Novel prize and became an award-winning television drama. The book was seen at the time as semi-autobiographical. Now, in her new memoir, Winterson looks back at her childhood growing up in a now vanished Northern community and at her search to find her birth mother.

Michael Goldfarb the reviews the new film directed by George Clooney, The Ides of March. Based on the play by Beau Willimon, the film tells the story of behind-the-scenes politics during a Presidential election campaign in America.

And many scientists are seeing further and understanding more than ever before, through experiments like the search for the Higgs boson and the Large Hadron Collider. Physicists Frank Close and Tara Shears discuss whether this is a golden age for physics.

Late Junction Sessions

Christian Wallumrod and Garth Knox

Fiona Talkington with a late-night mix and a Late Junction session with Norwegian pianist Christian Wallumrod and his ensemble, with Dublin-born viola virtuoso Garth Knox.

Christian Wallumrod draws his influences from Norwegian folk music, jazz and composers such as John Cage and Morton Feldman. He also plays harmonium and toy piano, blending with the trumpet, drums and strings of his ensemble. The result has been described as "wondrously obscure new music."

When Garth Knox was in his twenties he was invited by Pierre Boulez to join his Ensemble Intercontemporain in Paris, and later spent several years with the Arditti Quartet - his years with them included the premiere of Stockhausen's celebrated 'Helicopter Quartet'. He is now seeking to create a new repertory for the viola, embracing influences from baroque music, folk and the blues.

[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b0167vcq)
BBC SO - Bax, Saariaho, Sibelius

Live from the Barbican Centre, London.

Presented by Louise Fryer.

The distinguished Finnish conductor Sakari Oramo joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra to launch their Sibelius Symphony Cycle with his Third - over the next eight months, all seven of the Symphonies will be performed in a series of concerts broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

This opening concert is steeped in Finnish nature and mysticism. The Third Symphony was one of the first works to be composed in the serenity of Sibelius's lake-side home, Ainola, and features a lyrically beautiful chamber-like second movement. Anu Komsi is the soloist for Kaija Saariaho's evocation of Finland's snowy nights and fleeting springtime and for Sibelius's hymn to the all-creating nature-spirit, Luonnotar. The concert kicks off with Bax's evocation of Atlantic storminess - his symphonic poem Tintagel.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b0167vd5)
Jarvis Cocker, Kapka Kassabova, Diego Marani, John Kinsella

Jarvis Cocker is widely regarded as one of the most original and memorable lyricists and performers of recent decades. He talks to Ian McMillan about his first book, a collection of lyrics, Mother, Brother, Lover - which he has selected and annotated himself.

Diego Marani is a senior linguist at the European Union and writes a column for a Swiss newspaper about current affairs in Europanto, a language that he has invented. We'll hear extracts from his work in Europanto, and he'll describe how he devised the language.

Australian poet John Kinsella reads from his new book Armour.

And poet and travel writer Kapka Kassabova is fascinated with the global subculture of Tango - and writes and reads a new commission especially for the Verb, and takes us through the language of the dance.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b016fwtn)
The Book that Changed Me

Chocky

Space Scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock on how Chocky by John Wyndham was pivotal in overcoming her dread of reading. As a child Maggie and books simply didn't get on. She avoided them. Until a science fiction novel about a young boy, with an "imaginary" friend, fired her imagination to ask questions - a habit now central to her career as a scientist.
Producer: Smita Patel

First broadcast in October 2011.
