Domingo Celebration

Domingo Celebration
Presented by Andrew McGregor

A special homage to Placido Domingo, one of the greatest voices of all time and an artist renowned world-wide, well beyond the realm of music. The Royal Opera House celebrates the 40th anniversary of his London debut with acts from three Verdi operas that have had special significance in the Spanish tenor's career. In the title roles of Otello, Rigoletto and Simon Boccanegra, Domingo - who also turned 70 this year - portrays three immensely complex characters, all facing dramatic actions. The recently added baritone roles of the last two are testimony to both his incredibly wide repertory and his artistic hunger. This once-in-a-life-time celebration starts with Domingo as Otello, perhaps his most legendary portrayal and a role he's made entirely his own. Antonio Pappano, the Royal Opera House Music Director, conducts a star-studded cast.

Otello/Rigoletto/Boccanegra.....Placido Domingo (Tenor - Baritone)
Desdemona/Amelia.....Marina Poplavskaya (Soprano)
Gilda.....Ailyn Perez (Soprano)
Duke/Adorno.....Francesco Meli (Tenor)
Ludovico/Sparafucile/Fiesco.....Paata Burchuladze (Bass)

What Is News Now?

As part of the 2011 Free Thinking festival, BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 5 live join forces at The Sage Gateshead to debate the editorial choices behind news stories.

Broadcast live simultaneously on both networks, 5 live presenter Chris Warburton and Radio 3's Matthew Sweet are joined by a panel of guests from television news and the press. As internet bloggers and social media such as Twitter transform the consumption and distribution of news, and as celebrity gossip and audience generated stories push foreign affairs and politics further down the agenda, what is the future of traditional news?

The debate takes place at The Sage Gateshead in front of a live audience as part of BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking festival of ideas 4 - 6 November.


SAT 22:00 Pre-Hear (b016vks3)
David Bedford's The Song of the White Horse

David Bedford died earlier this month after a life making music that reached across all boundaries and was intended for all people. His 1978 score The Song of the White Horse is a characteristic example. Commissioned for a BBC television documentary, the work charts a journey along an ancient Berkshire footpath between a stone-age burial mound and the famous White Horse of Uffington. Setting words by G.K.Chesterton, it celebrates King Alfred's victory over the Danes at the Battle of Englefield in the 9th century. Set for small ensemble and a children's choir, it famously climaxes with the choir reaching stratospherically high notes by inhaling Helium gas.

SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b016vks5)
Cut and Splice 2011

Robert Worby presents performances from this year's Cut & Splice Festival, co-curated by Hear And Now and Sound And Music at the ICA in London this week. This year's theme is Collectives, and features performances by Jennifer Walshe's Grupat collective, and the Wandelweiser collective, which includes composer/performers Michael Pisaro, Eva-Maria Houben and Antoine Beuger. Wandelweiser music is about "the evaluation and integration of silence rather than an ongoing carpet of never-ending sounds." John Cage is a figure of central importance to them, especially the work featured in this week's instalment of the Hear and Now 50: Cage's legendary "silent" piece, 4'33" .
Artist Tacita Dean describes filming Cage's partner Merce Cunningham performing a new dance solo to the work; Richard Bernas puts the piece into the context of the 1950s New York art scene; plus an archive recording of Cage himself explaining some of the ideas that led him to compose a piece for a performer who makes no sound.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b016vl4x)
Anoushka Shankar

Michael Berkeley's guest today is the sitar player and composer Anoushka Shankar, one of the stars of world music today. She studied exclusively with her father, the great Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar, made her debut at age 13 in New Delhi, and released her first solo recording in 1998. In 2001 her third album, Live at Carnegie Hall, was nominated for a Grammy award. In 2002 she appeared at the Royal Albert Hall in a tribute concert to the late George Harrison, conducting a new piece by her father which featured Eric Clapton on solo guitar.
Until 2005 she was primarily a solo performer of Indian classical music, but in that year she branched out with her fourth album, Rise, a fusion of East and West employing both acoustic and electric instrumentation, on which she appeared as composer, arranger and producer. It won her another Grammy nomination. She toured extensively in the wake of the new album, forming the Anoushka Shankar Project to present her new non-classical ensemble works to a live audience, and in 2007 released another album, Breathing Under Water, in collaboration with the Indian-American producer Karsh Kale It features guest appearances by her father and her half-sister, Norah Jones. She now applies her expertise as a fine Indian classical musician to working with top-quality musicians from a range of traditions to create innovative music that appeals to a wide audience. She has just released her next album, Traveller.

Her eclectic choices for Private Passions include piano pieces by Debussy and Erik Satie; the Andantino from Faure's Piano Trio, Op.120; a piece by Ali Farka Toure and Toumani Diabate, a collaboration which she particularly admires; a raga played by her father; a flamenco piece, and Nick Cave's song 'Into My Arms'.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b016vl4z)
The Early Symphony

As part of Radio 3's month long celebration of Symphony, the Early Music Show traces the early history. Catherine Bott reflects on the trail-blazing work of the pioneering symphonists of the 18th century such as Sammartini, the Stamitz family, Holzbauer, JC Bach, Monn and Wagenseil.

The 18th century saw a creative explosion in the development of instrumental music and in particular, one of the great innovations of the century was the orchestral symphony. Many of its origins can be traced to Italy but it quickly became a pan European phenomenon with every major cultural centre boasting its own symphonist or "school" of symphony composers, each of which was bursting with its own creative reponses to this new and exciting kind of music.

As part of the BBC "Symphony" season, Catherine Bott reflects on some of the major pioneering figures in the development of the symphony, casting her net across many of Europe's major cities - from Milan to Mannheim, Hamburg and Dresden, Paris, Berlin, London and Vienna. The programme considers some of the novel innovations that were introduced into the symphony as the century progressed and by dwelling on some of the music of lesser known composers it provides a context for the musical world that we've come to associate with Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

Many of the symphonists featured in this programme can also be heard in complete performances across the following week on Radio 3's Afternoon on 3.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b016vn00)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

The Edwardian Golden Summer

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum. At the outbreak of war, Elgar was noted for being more concerned about his beloved horses, than for any soldiers fighting. Little did anyone know how many horses or people would die in this conflict, which lasted more than the predicted three months. Elgar did do his bit though, joining the Special Reserve, conducting charity concerts to raise much needed funds, and composing the odd bit of jingoistic music to rally the people. It is the Great War period back at home in Great Britain, with Zeppelin raids, German cruisers shelling Whitby and Scarborough, to xenophobic riots in London, which Donald Macleod explores tracing how these events affected the life and music of Sir Edward Elgar.

1914, and in the age of Empire and British supremacy at sea, it was the Edwardian Golden Summer. Few people realised that war was looming, and commissions were coming in for Elgar, such as from the Sons of Clergy Festival at St. Paul's Cathedral, for which he composed his anthem Give unto the Lord. Soon, with motor vehicles requisitioned, and the unmistakable increase of men in khaki, the Great War had begun. Elgar soon received his first war commission in aid of the Belgian Fund, writing a work for narrator and orchestra, Carillon. But many of Elgar's most fierce supporters were German, including Hans Richter, to whom he dedicated his Three Bavarian Dances.

The Sixteen - Monteverdi Sacred Music

The Sixteen perform sacred music from Claudio Monteverdi's Selva morale e Spirituale of 1641.
Harry Christophers conducts his Sixteen and Sixteen Orchestra in a concert broadcast live from the Temple Church, London.
Martin Handley presents this concert of music by the greatest of Italian Renaissance composers. He is credited with revolutionising the music of the theatre and the church by his dramatic and imaginative use of instruments and voices, and by his daring harmonies. This programme contains some of Monteverdi's most significant sacred polyphonic writing. Demanding and virtuosic and musically thrilling, this concert is an extraordinary showcase for the world-renowned choir and orchestra and their founder, Harry Christophers and all broadcast live from a church as famed for its generous acoustics as for its haunting tombs of the Knights Templar.

Monteverdi: Kyrie and Gloria from Messa a 4; Credidi, propter quod locutus sum; Pianto della Madonna; Credo from Messa a 4; Beatus vir (Secondo).

c. 8.15pm Interval: instrumental music by some of Monteverdi's Italian forebears and contemporaries including Frescobaldi and a chance to hear music by Gian Francesco Malipiero, the composer and musicologist who put Monteverdi's music back onto the musical map in the early part of the twentieth century.

Rev Dr Giles Fraser

Rev Dr Giles Fraser, the former Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral, gives a talk at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011 on the Crisis of Commitment in our society, and an indepth interview with presenter Matthew Sweet.

Giles Fraser is the festival's Thinker-in-Residence.

He recently resigned as Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral over the handling of the Occupy London protest. At St Paul's Cathedral Giles was responsible for contemporary ethics and engagement with the financiers in the City of London. A popular contributor to Radio 4's Thought for the Day, he also lectures the British army on moral leadership.

In a talk entitled The Magnificent Seven and the Crisis of Commitment, Giles Fraser claims we have become addicted to the detached, uncommitted lifestyle embodied in those wandering gunslingers from western movies, who never want to be tied down. Is individualism pushing out all other values and leaving us rootless?

This event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Matthew Sweet.

BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2011 takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November.

The Free Thinking Essay

New Generation Thinker: Lucy Powell

Lucy Powell, lecturer at University College London and one of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk on the surprising history of novelty, recorded at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011.

Today we think of originality as exciting, perhaps the most admired feature of new art. But in the past novelty was regarded as deeply suspect. Even Shakespeare disliked dreaming up new plots, preferring to borrow from others. So why the reversal? Lucy Powell charts the rise and rise of novelty.

This essay is recorded in front of an audience at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011, which takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November. The New Generation Thinkers are winners of the inaugural talent scheme run the BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into fascinating broadcasts.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b016vn0g)
Alexey Kruglov and The Thing in Session

Jez Nelson presents avant-garde Russian saxophonist Alexey Kruglov and his trio in concert. Kruglov is part of the Moscow improvising scene, continuing the tradition developed by the Ganelin Trio in the 1970s and 80s. His music combines punk-rock energy with dark humour and a folk-like lyricism, allied to an eccentric playing technique that includes playing several instruments at once. He is joined by Estonian electric guitarist Jaak Sooäär and Paul May on drums, performing music from his latest album.

Also on the programme, a session by Scandinavian free jazz trio The Thing, featuring saxophonist Mats Gustafsson, bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten and Paal Nilssen-Love on drums.

Elgar and the Zeppelin Raids on London

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

At the beginning of 1915 came the realisation that the Great War was not going to be over in three months. German cruisers had been shelling Whitby and Scarborough, and Zeppelin raids were happening over London. Keen to do his bit, Elgar joined the Hampstead Special Reserve, being called out when needed for air-raid duties. He also started to compose a work genuinely inspired by the pity of war and the inhumanity of warfare, The Spirit of England. But with the sinking of the Lusitania, riots took place in London, and xenophobia was on the rise. At this very same time, Elgar was writing his Polonia, a symphonic prelude in aid of the Polish Relief Fund. However, what the people needed more than anything, was escapism, and Elgar supplied it by returning to fairyland, with his Starlight Express.

The Pavel Haas Quartet took part in the BBC's New Generation Artist Scheme and are now based in Prague, from where they are much in demand worldwide, and they have built a reputation for the highest level of quartet playing.

In November 2010 the quartet played four concerts at LSO St. Luke's in London, and this, the first of them pairs two works by their countryman Dvorak - the best known of his quartets - the "American" and the string quintet - also written on that same American trip.

In the String Quintet, the additional viola is Krzystof Chorzelski who is the viola player with the Belcea Quartet.

The quartet members are: violinists Veronika Jaruskova & Eva Karova, viola player Pavel Nikl and cellist Krzystof Jarusek.

The performances are presented by Katie Derham

Pierre-Laurent Aimard Plays Liszt

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

In a concert celebrating the Liszt bicentenary, Pierre-Laurent Aimard plays some of the composer's most celebrated works alongside those by the great piano composers who followed him.

After a Threnody inspired by trees in the park of the Villa d'Este near Rome, we hear Nenie, one of the Dirges by Bartók, Liszt's successor in the Hungarian piano tradition. The concert continues with a pair of works by Liszt and Ravel which both seek to capture the beauty of the play of fountains. A contemporary work from award-winning Italian composer Marco Stroppa depicts a traditional ceremony from Easter Island, and finally there is Liszt's portrait of St Francis of Assisi and a dazzling evocation of exotic birdsong by Messiaen, with whose music Aimard is strongly associated.

Rachel Hewitt

Rachel Hewitt, one of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk on the mapping of the Scottish border, recorded at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011.

The dividing line between Scotland and England has been a source of tension over the centuries, but it wasn't until the 1750s that the border was mapped from scratch, with the most sophisticated instruments and methods the Enlightenment had to offer. Rachel Hewitt, Fellow at Wolfson College, Oxford and author of an acclaimed history of the Ordnance Survey, tells the story of that mapping, the motives that fuelled it, and the role of maps as icons of national identity.

This essay is recorded in front of an audience at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011, which takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Elgar and the Gramophone Company

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

The Great War dragged on, and by 1916 the government was forced to introduce compulsory national service. Elgar found himself touring the North of England and Scotland, with morale-raising concerts and music including To Women from The Spirit of England. But Elgar was unwell even before the war started, and war events combined with his exhausting work were dragging him down. His wife Alice refused to let Elgar accept the offer of a conducting tour of Russia, due to his ill health. He still managed though to keep working on a theme or two of his, such as his incomplete Piano Concerto, and a jingoistic work Fight for Right.


WED 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b016vpxr)
Pavel Haas Quartet 2011

LSO ST LUKES - Pavel Haas series (rpt)

The Pavel Haas Quartet are named after a young Czech composer who was interned by the Nazis in the the infamous "Theresienstadt" concentration camp. The Pavel Haas Quartet took part in the BBC's New Generation Artist Scheme and are now based in Prague, from where they are much in demand worldwide, and they have built a reputation for the highest level of quartet playing.

In November 2010 the quartet played four concerts at LSO St. Luke's in London, and this concert features two works by Beethoven. His C minor Trio and the first of the Op.59 set dedicated to Count Razumovsky, the Russian Ambassador in the Viennese Court in 1806 - a wealthy patron who commissioned these three quartets from Beethoven.

The quartet members are: violinists Veronika Jaruskova and Eva Karova, viola player Pavel Nikl and cellist Krzystof Jarusek

The performances are presented by Katie Derham.

Beethoven: Trio in C minor, Op.9; Quartet in F major, Op.59 No.1 "Razumovsky".

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b016vpy0)
Live from the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Vaughan Williams

Live from the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester.

Presented by Christopher Cook.

Written as the storm clouds of war were gathering, Vaughan Williams's Fifth Symphony is a glorious paean to peace that opens with a gentle horn call and ends in a serene glow. A sweetly expressive lovers' theme, a military band and even a cheeky cockney street urchin feature in Elgar's overture Cockaigne, a beguiling musical picture of our capital city. Alongside these two British masterpieces is Dvorák's lovely and highly lyrical Serenade. Completed in 1878, it gave the Czech composer one of his earliest successes, and will be conducted this evening by the Halle's assistant conductor Andrew Gourlay.

WED 20:15 Symphony Question Time (b016vpy2)
Sue Perkins and Tom Service unravel everything you ever wanted to know about the symphony...but were too afraid to ask...

Why are symphonies considered the pinnacle of classical music? Who wrote the first one? Is there really a "Curse Of The Ninth"? And can you be a truly great composer without writing a symphony?

Comedienne Sue Perkins joins Tom Service for the first in a six-part celebration of the most famous - and perhaps scariest - form in classical music.

They're here to blow away the myths and unpick the mysteries surrounding this most venerable form - with a host of musical excerpts from Haydn to Hovhaness, Mozart to Mahler, Beethoven to Berio.

Over the six episodes they'll be looking at questions like how the symphony first originated; whether a symphony should be about logic and form, or be a encapsulation of the whole world; and why people get so darn annoyed when you clap between the movements...

Sue Perkins and Tom Service unravel everything you ever wanted to know about the symphony...but were too afraid to ask...

In today's episode, Sue and Tom examine the thorny issue of to clap or not to clap before a symphony's finished; explore at the roots of the symphony - the idea of a 'sounding together'; and get to grips with the titans of the classical symphonic tradition, Haydn and Mozart .

They'll also be asking you to send in your own questions for their perusal later in the series. You can submit your queries about anything symphonic by email to r3symphonyqt@bbc.co.uk; alternatively, you can pose your questions on the BBC Radio 3's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/bbcradio3), or via Twitter at @BBCRadio3 (hashtag #R3SymphonyQT).

Kevin Fong

Kevin Fong, who presents BBC2's Horizon and is a leading expert on space medicine, gives a talk at the 2011 Free Thinking Festival: Why we should not retreat from the final frontier.

In the wake of the retirement of the space shuttle, Kevin Fong - who works for NASA - argues that now is no time to pull back from space exploration, calling for a Second Space Age. Co-director of the Centre for Aviation Space and Extreme Environment Medicine, he believes that Britain should be at the forefront of space science.

Night Waves presenter Rana Mitter hosts Kevin Fong's talk, recorded in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3' Free Thinking Festival 2011, which takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November, and which is broadcast on Radio 3 for three weeks from 4 November.

The Free Thinking Essay

Corin Throsby

Corin Throsby, one of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk on the extraordinary fan mail received by the poet Lord Byron, recorded at the 2011 Free Thinking Festival

We think of fan mail as a recent phenomenon, but in the early 19th Century the poet Byron receieved hundreds of letters from love-sick admirers. Cambridge academic Corin Throsby takes us on a journey into Byron's intimate fan mail and shows what those letters reveal about the creation of a celebrity culture that has continued into the globalised present.

This essay is recorded in front of an audience at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011, which takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November. The New Generation Thinkers are winners of the inaugural talent scheme run the BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into fascinating broadcasts.

Elgar and The Fringes of the Fleet

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

With no end in sight for the war, it continued on into 1917. This is when Elgar heard of the death of his friend and supporter Hans Richter, who had given the premiere of some of Elgar's best known works, including the Enigma Variations. Things however were starting to change in Britain, with a new government, and the introduction of convoys to protect cargo and hospital ships from the German u-boat campaign. But with the continued reports of atrocities on the front line, and increased deprivations at home, Elgar finally found the stimulus to finish his work The Spirit of England, with a setting of The Fourth of August. It wasn't only war music which Elgar concentrated on during this time, as he also composed his only ballet incorporating 18th century French costumes and classical mythology, in The Sanguine Fan.

In the third of the four concerts recorded in November 2010 by the Pavel Haas Quartet at LSO St. Luke's in London, the quartet chose two twentieth-century quartets from France. In the days of LPs these were a natural pairing - not so common on the concert stage - the quartets by Debussy and Ravel.

The quartet members are: violinists Veronika Jaruskova and Eva Karova, viola player Pavel Nikl and cellist Krzystof Jarusek

He performs live in the studio with his regular collaborator Aleksander Szram ahead of appearances at the Wimbledon Music Festival.

John Harle is best known as a saxophonist and composer, but is also an acclaimed conductor. He talks to Sean from Newcastle about conducting Percy Grainger ahead of his Gateshead concert with the Northern Sinfonia and the Kathryn Tickell Band.

Sean talks to composer Alec Roth and writer Vikram Seth about their fruitful musical collaborations. Since 2006 they have worked together on a project of four major works, and this culminates with the publication of Seth's libretti texts and a premiere concert by Ex Cathedra at Town Hall, Birmingham this month.

BBC Symphony Orchestra - Kaderabek, Dvorak, Martinu, Janacek

Live from the Barbican Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Jiri Belohlavek conducts an all-Czech programme. Two of these works hark back to ancient myth: one tells of a Golden Spinning Wheel that mysteriously reveals a treacherous deed, the other of a Ukrainian Cossack Knight, Taras Bulba, who fights against oppression. Martinu's Rhapsody Concerto for viola and orchestra has a warm and very Bohemian lyricism, while Jiri Kaderabek's work which opens the concert shows a brand-new face of Czech music, urban and streetwise. This newly commissioned piece has a very simple starting point - the C major scale.

Germaine Greer delivers a talk questioning the pursuit of freedom at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2011.

One of the most influential intellectual voices of our times, Germaine Greer has caused controversy ever since her book The Female Eunuch became an international best-seller in 1970. Inspired by the Janis Joplin lyric "Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose", she argues that the pursuit of freedom has caused havoc throughout the world, and calls for a new version of liberation.

Night Waves presenter Philip Dodd hosts Germaine Greer's talk, which was recorded in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2011.

Free Thinking takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November and is broadcast on Radio 3 for three weeks following Friday 4 November.

New Generation Thinker: Laurence Scott

Laurence Scott, one of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk on the fascinating figure of the gothic heroine, recorded at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Swooning maidens crowd early horror stories, but these hunted heroines are also stalked through the pages of 20th Century novels such as Virginia Woolf's Mrs Dalloway and Iris Murdoch's The Unicorn. Laurence Scott explores the evolution of the gothic heroine.

This essay is recorded in front of an audience at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011, which takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b016vq5y)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Armistice Declared, But No Celebration for Elgar

By the end of the Great War, Sir Edward Elgar couldn't compose any music to celebrate peace, disillusioned as he was by the whole period, which Donald Macleod explores in conversation with Terry Charman from the Imperial War Museum.

By 1918, Elgar had stomach problems and was continually unwell, finally being operated on to remove his tonsils. Compared to what hundreds of thousands were enduring in the trench warfare of the first world war, this was no great thing, but Elgar was 61 and not in great shape. Once installed with his wife in a rustic thatched cottage in West Sussex to recuperate, his creativity started to flow again, in particular sketching out a germ of a theme on his piano entitled "?", which would later become part of his Cello Concerto. There were also more rustic pursuits, including gardening and fishing, but then came an official request from the Ministry of Food for a new war work, Big Steamers. When the Armistice was signed, with his Land of Hope and Glory proving ever popular, Elgar did not feel inclined to compose any work in celebration of peace. Many of his friends had died, and his life was dramatically changed for ever.


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b016vq7k)
Pavel Haas Quartet 2011

Episode 4

The Pavel Haas Quartet are named after a young Czech composer who was interned by the Nazis in the the infamous "Theresienstadt" concentration camp. The Pavel Haas Quartet took part in the BBC's New Generation Artist Scheme and are now based in Prague, from where they are much in demand worldwide, and they have built a reputation for the highest level of quartet playing.

In the last concert recorded in November 2010 by the Pavel Haas Quartet at LSO St. Luke's in London, the quartet chose two works by Schubert, his Quartet Movement in C minor (D.703) and his perennial favourite, the Quartet in D minor (D.810) "Death and the Maiden" - so called because the variations movement is based on an earlier song by Schubert of that name - both works of great intensity and played with intensity by the Pavel Haas Quartet

The quartet members are: violinists Veronika Jaruskova and Eva Karova, viola player Pavel Nikl and cellist Krzystof Jarusek

The performances are presented by Katie Derham.

Schubert:Quartettsatz in C minor, D.703; String Quartet in D minor, D.810 "Death and the Maiden".

FRI 22:00 Free Thinking (b016vq7t)
2011

The Verb at Free Thinking: Maximo Park, Jackie Kay, David Almond, Kate Fox

Poet Ian McMillan hosts BBC Radio 3's The Verb, his unique cabaret of the word, recorded at The Sage Gateshead as part of BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2011.

There's music from the double platinum selling band Maxïmo Park, one of the few bands of recent times to wear their intellectualism on their sleeves. Lead singer Paul Smith talks about the songwriting process.

We feature the first performance of a new poem on the theme of Change, Mutatis Mutandis, written together by Jackie Kay, Sean O'Brien and W.N. Herbert, and commissioned by the Newcastle Centre for the Literary Arts.

Celebrated children's writer David Almond grew up in the Gateshead area and discusses regionalism in art and what it's like to be labelled a 'northern writer'. He describes how he found his confidence as a writer from the North East by looking to the great writers of the southern states of America, like Flannery O'Connor.

And spoken word artist Kate Fox tells us why she's frightened of the metaphor.

Producer : Dymphna Flynn.


FRI 22:45 Free Thinking (b017095r)
The Free Thinking Essay

New Generation Thinker: David Petts

David Petts, one of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, gives a talk calling for the physical preservation of the industrial heritage of the North East, recorded at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival

The North-East of England was once one of the industrial heartlands of Britain, yet today the physical traces of entire industries have been swept away. Archaeologist and Durham University Lecturer David Petts argues that this is no way to treat the past, and that the physical remains of our recent history should be preserved now before they are lost forever.

This essay is recorded in front of an audience at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011, which takes place at The Sage Gateshead 4 - 6 November. The New Generation Thinkers are winners of the inaugural talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into fascinating broadcasts.
