SAT 21:55 Between the Ears (b017sr7g)
Use It Or Lose It

Dame Harriet Walter and David Horovitch appear in Use It Or Lose It, a radiophonic play created by Peter Blegvad and Iain Chambers, charting the failing memory of a fictional GP, Charles Proctor (Peter Blegvad).

Combining narrated fiction with observations from the world of history and culture, the programme uses radiophonic music and sound design to take us inside Charles Proctor's mind.

As Dr Proctor descends deeper into amnesia, we hear voices reflecting on memory: Walter de la Mare, Rabbi Ben Ezra, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Emily Dickinson, William Wordsworth, Luis Bunuel, Harold Pinter, Francis Galton, Rene Descartes, W.B.Yeats, and Elvis Presley.

And we encounter a new age healer, Madam Aladdin (Harriet Walter), a radical who advocates going with the disease. She entreats Dr Proctor to join her Lamp Camp and Illumination Showroom, and embrace amnesia as a way of "extending the boundaries of the self - of becoming someone else".

Producer, Iain Chambers.
A Falling Tree production for BBC R3.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b017srlk)
Henry Sandon

Michael Berkeley travels to the Worcester Porcelain Museum to meet the local celebrity, expert on English porcelain and music-lover Henry Sandon, known to millions of TV viewers for his many appearances as one of the ceramics experts on BBC1's Antiques Road Show. The programme is being recorded in front of an invited audience, among the Museum's exquisite collection of Worcester porcelain,which Henry himself curated for many years.

Music is an abiding passion for Henry, who comes from a musical family stretching back to the 18th century. He himself studied at the Guildhall School of Music, and after graduation was appointed a lay-clerk at Worcester Cathedral. He began his career as a music-master at the city's Royal Grammar School before becoming curator of the Porcelain Museum. For the past 40 years he has appeared as an expert on TV series such as 'Going for a Song' and 'Antiques Roadshow' , as well as writing books on his specialities. He has also presented 'Songs of Praise'.

Choral music is a particular passion fof Henry Sandon, and his choices include a motet by Thomas Tomkins, who was organist of Worcester Cathedral in the early 17th century. There's also vocal music by Purcell, Elgar, Britten and Lennox Berkeley; a movement from one of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, and part of an early wind quintet by another local celebrity, Edward Elgar. Finally Henry indulges his lighter side with music from Bernstein's 'West Side Story', and a song by Noel Coward.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b017srn1)
Princess Maria Barbara

A profile of Maria Bárbara, the Portuguese Infanta and Spanish Queen, and the muse of Domenico Scarlatti, on the 300th anniversary of her birth.

Catherine Bott looks back on the life of one Europe's most musically talented royal figures, the inspirational Maria Madalena Bárbara Xavier Leonor Teresa Antónia Josefa (4 December 1711 - 27 August 1758), whose gifts as a keyboard player and great love for music inspired Domenico Scarlatti to devote the best part of his life serving her and prompted him to compose at least 550 sonatas for her to play.

Maria Bárbara's name often appears alongside Scarlatti's when talking about his music, but little is usually said about her, her court and her times. Catherine Bott takes the three hundredth anniversary of her birth to review the Scarlatti story from a different perspective.


SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b017srn3)

SUN 17:00 Choir and Organ (b017ss44)
Red Army Choir

It might seem a kitsch throwback to the days when music was an essential weapon in the Soviet armoury, but the Red Army Choir still sets the benchmark for military music-making some 80 odd years since it was founded. Now known as the Alexandrov Ensemble, the company of singers, players and dancers still tours the world as a cultural envoy of the Russian state. Aled Jones uncovers the history of the group, from its first glory years when it performed a vital role in promoting culture amongst the members of the Soviet military. He follows it through the Second World War when it gave an astounding 1500 concerts to motivate the troups, and then the post-war years when it had to re-invent itself as a vehicle for national pride across the world despite political resistance to its concerts in the West.

Also in the programme, Birmingham-based Black Voices share their passion for a cappella singing, with an infectious blend of gospel, blues, jazz, African and Caribbean styles, and there's a masterclass in close-harmony virtuosity from Norwegian ensemble Pust.


SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b017ss46)

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b017ss48)
Walking With Attitude

For several years now, "psychogeography" has been a word worth dropping into conversation if you want to impress with your cultural street smarts. More interesting than the oxbow lakes of your own school geography, and more hip than the human geography your own kids do, psychogeography sounds edgy, which it might be, if you could work out what it was. It was invented by drug-influenced French situationists - who described it as "pleasingly vague" - as they wandered round Paris in an attempt to escape the banalisation of the "spectacle". But British writers like Will Self, Iain Sinclair and Stewart Home have made the term almost mainstream - a way of making familiar landscapes seem exotic, sometimes by injecting a dash of magic and mysticism. Travel writer Ian Marchant wanders along the ill-defined frontier between punk and rambling

Producer: Jolyon Jenkins

First broadcast in December 2011.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b017ss4b)
The Plough and the Stars

Sean O'Casey's classic play set in the midst of the Easter Rising of 1916. The impact of events is viewed through the eyes of ordinary people inhabiting a Dublin tenement. O'Casey's masterpiece paints a vivid portrait of a city and a nation in turmoil.

The Plough and the Stars was chosen for Drama on 3 by the playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah. Kwame also introduces this new production of the play.

Musical Director ..... Conrad Nelson.


SUN 22:40 World Routes (b017ss4d)
WOMEX 2011

Episode 2

More highlights from WOMEX, the annual gathering of the world music industry, which takes place this year in Copenhagen. WOMEX showcases the newest bands and the freshest talent in world music, and Lopa Kothari introduces specially-recorded performances by the Mairtin O'Connor Band from Ireland, the flamboyant Orquesta Tipica Fernandez Fierro from Argentina, and the Pakistani Qawaali party led by Asif Ali Khan. Plus a session by the master Iranian percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi. Producer James Parkin.

Mairtin O'Connor, Cathal Hayden, Seamie O'Dowd & Jim Higgins have been the Mairtin O'Connor Band since 2001. Individually recognised figureheads of the Irish tradition, they have built solid reputations as master musicians with astounding skill, diversity and virtuosity. Mairtin was one of the main musical forces behind the now legendary Riverdance phenomenon.

Orquesta Tipica Fernandez Fierro is a revolutionary force on the Argentinian tango scene. The formation is the typical four bandoneons, three violins, viola, violoncello, double-bass, piano and a singer but the sound they make is aggressively modern, taking inspiration from the great tango orchestras of the past and infusing it with a rock attitude. When at home in Buenos Aires, they perform every Wednesday at their own venue, Club Atletico Fernandez Fierro.

Praised by the great qawaali singer, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, as one of his finest students, Asif Ali Khan from Pakistan, has established himself as a worthy bearer of the late maestro's torch.


SUN 23:30 Jazz Line-Up (b017ss4g)
Tomasz Stanko

When Tomasz Stanko took to the stage during July of this year at the Glasgow Jazz Festival, he did so without his billed colleague of Lee Kontiz who had to cancel due to illness. Nevertheless the audience at the Old Fruit Market were treated to a soulful selection of tunes with the trio of Florian Weber, piano. Jeff Denson, bass and Ziv Ravitz, drums.
Stanko ( who said very little during the set) took us through classics such as "Dark Eyes" Stella by Starlight "and "On Green Dolphin Street"
Stanko approaches each tune as if its just appeared on the page and his fine trio fit him like a glove. A compelling listen.

Le Concert Spirituel

The Birth of the Concert Spirituel

This week Donald Macleod presents the work of not one composer but 27, from familiar names like Haydn, Mozart and Vivaldi to largely forgotten ones like Rigel, Dauvergne and Montéclair. All of them rubbed shoulders in the 18th century's longest-running concert series, the Concert Spirituel, which started in Paris in the reign of Louis XV and continued uninterrupted until just after the French Revolution. During this astonishingly rich 65-year period, music was undergoing a gradual transformation, from the end of the Baroque era to the beginning of the Classical - a process that's fully reflected in the programmes of the Concert Spirituel, all of which have been preserved in contemporary journals. All week, Donald is joined in the studio by two leading authorities on the Concert Spirituel: conductor, scholar and editor Dr Lionel Sawkins; and Beverly Wilcox, an American Musicological Society fellow currently doing dissertation research in Paris.

Today's programme charts the early years of the Concert Spirituel, whose 'spiritual' aspect derives from the fact that the concerts took place on religious feast days. These were days when the opera house was prohibited by law from opening its doors - a commercial opportunity eagerly grasped by the Concert Spirituel's first director, Anne Danican Philidor. As it turned out, the early years of the series were a total financial disaster. Philidor died in debt, and his successor, Jean-Joseph Mouret, was driven to bankruptcy and madness; but out of this difficult labour came the birth of an institution we now take for granted: the public concert. For the first two decades or more, the musical backbone of the series was the grand motet, an appropriately lavish genre first cultivated at the court of the Louis XIV, the Sun King. The pre-eminent composer of grand motets was Michel-Richard de Lalande, whose work stayed in the repertoire of the Concert Spirituel from its opening concert on 18 March 1725 right through to 14 June 1770; with more than 600 performances, Lalande's music was heard more often than that of any other composer in the entire series. But an unadulterated diet of motets, however dazzling, would hardly have kept the punters coming, so to create a more varied menu there was instrumental music too - much of it Italian. Vivaldi's Four Seasons turned up for its Parisian début on 7 February 1728; written only five years earlier, it was then something it now hasn't been for a very long time - contemporary music!

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b017ssqz)
BBC NOW - Brahms, Mozart, Zemlinsky

Live from BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Martyn Brabbins conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in youthful masterpieces by Mozart and Zemlinsky, plus Brahms' popular Variations on a theme by Haydn.

Mozart's third Violin Concerto marked a significant step forward for the young composer, still only 19. Written in Salzburg, it's an astonishing achievement of refined elegance. It's played by the young soloist Alexandra Soumm, one of the rising stars of Radio 3's New Generation Artist Scheme.

Zemlinsky was still a student when he wrote his first symphony. Completed in 1893 as he was finishing his studies at the Vienna Conservatoire, he conducted the premiere himself at the end of term concert. It immediately established the young composer as a master of orchestral colour with an assured sense of symphonic development - almost all of the musical material germinates from the seed of the first five notes.

Brahms was in the audience for that concert, and he immediately became a great champion of Zemlinsky's music. Twenty years earlier, his own Variations on the St. Anthony Chorale had a similar mastery, an impressive development of a simple theme into a joyous and inventive symphonic outburst. For Brahms it proved a vital stepping stone to the successful creation of his first symphony.

Martyn Brabbins returns to the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for the first time since their storming Proms success with Havergal Brian's Gothic Symphony in the summer.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b017ssr1)
Night Waves at Free Thinking - Revision Time! What Are Schools Really For?

In 'Revision Time! What are schools really for today?' Anne McElvoy chairs a discussion about the true value of education, recorded at the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2011 at the Sage, Gateshead.

As our school system undergoes significant levels of reform, with the proliferation of academies and free schools and proposals for a new curriculum, shouldn't we be asking ourselves what school is really for? Are we so fixated on exam results that we ignore alternative ways to bring up our children and disregard the real benefits of education?

Children's writer David Almond, the journalist and school governor Fiona Millar, the headmaster of Monkseaton School Paul Kelley, literacy expert Tom Burkard who wants to set up a Free School staffed by ex-members of the military and New Generation Thinker Shahidha Bari debate the issues.

Not Responsibility: Shame

Personal reflections on different aspects of the life, work and influence of WG Sebald by those who knew him, ten years after his death.

WG "Max" Sebald's literary career was at its height when he died in a car crash in December 2001, shortly after the publication of his masterpiece Austerlitz.

From the dual perspective of friend and colleague, Christopher Bigsby remembers WG Sebald in his adopted home of Norwich and reflects on how 'exile' there allowed him to write about the hidden history of his German homeland.

Le Concert Spirituel

Telemann Comes to Town

Today's programme looks at the second phase of the Concert Spirituel, marked by the administration of the Académie Royale de Musique (that is, the Paris Opera), who rescued the whole enterprise from collapse following the financial calamities suffered by the first directors. The concerts' venue continued to be the Salle des Cent Suisses of the Tuileries Palace, which until its destruction in 1871 stood next to the Louvre. The hall was cavernous, which made it more suitable for some musical instruments than others. One that came to be favoured was the new-style Italian violin, whose piercing tone carried far better in that enormous space than that of the old-fashioned viola da gamba. This promoted the growth of a new school of French violin virtuosos, foremost amongst them Jean-Marie Leclair, who made dozens of appearances at the Concert Spirituel, often in concertos of his own composition. (He was to meet a violent end in 1764 - stabbed in the back, perhaps in some family dispute.) A prominent musical visitor to Paris in 1738 was the composer Telemann, who attended performances at the Concert Spirituel of his grand motet Deus judicium tuum, which, he recorded in his diary, "was performed twice in three days by almost 100 select musicians". He also wrote a series of 'Paris Quartets' in the city, several of which were performed at the Concert Spirituel in the 1740s. Another fascinating figure is Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, who took the unconventional step of selling his compositions direct to the public rather than going the traditional route and finding himself a wealthy patron - as a result of which he became extremely wealthy himself. Two names not so familiar nowadays are Michel Pignolet de Montéclair and Jean-Joseph Cassanéa de Mondonville, who after Lalande was the second most frequently performed composer in the 65 years of the series.

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Live from the Barbican Centre, London

A concert of masterpieces performed by the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Colin Davis and featuring as soloist, the pianist Mitsuko Uchida.

Haydn composer his Symphony No.98 on his first trip to London, where it was given its premiere (at the Hanover Square Rooms) in 1792. It opens the concert tonight.

Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto is a ground-breaking work, a milestone in Beethoven's composing life, coming early in his so-called middle-period. It's played by the brilliant pianist Mitsuko Uchida.

Sir Colin Davis has been very much associated with Scandinavian music, especially Sibelius. The Danish composer Carl Nielsen's Second Symphony is subtitled 'The Four Temperaments' and the individual movements are labelled Choleric; Phlegmatic, Melancholic and Sanguine. The inspiration for the symphony, composed at the turn of the last century, was a four-part picture of the four temperaments in a village put in Zealand. The composer conducted the first performance of the symphony in December 1902.

And why has the world forgotten Rabindranath Tagore? This year marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Bengal's literary giant, the first Asian recipient of the Nobel Prize; but yet while his work was celebrated worldwide during his life, he has since largely fallen out of favour in the West.

Le Concert Spirituel

Pergolesi Soars; Rameau Flops

Today's programme sees the Académie Royale de Musique giving up control of the Concert Spirituel and placing it back in private hands: those of the violinist Gabriel Capperan and the composer Joseph-Nicolas-Pancrace Royer, whose widow took his place when Royer died a few years later. Two of the most striking musical arrivals of this period (1748-62) were foreign: Giovanni Battista Pergolesi and Johann Stamitz. Pergolesi didn't arrive in person - he'd been dead since 1736 - but his Stabat Mater made a tremendous impact at its first performance at the Concert Spirituel in 1753, going on to become the single most played work of the series; it clocked up more than 80 performances in 37 years. Stamitz spent a year in Paris, from 1754-5. He was evidently well thought of and well-connected, since he joined Parisian society at the very top, lodging with the appropriately named Alexandre-Jean-Joseph Le Riche de La Pouplinière - an enormously wealthy tax collector who had the money and inclination to become a serious patron of the Arts. No less than Rameau spent 22 years in his household, as director of his private orchestra, an arrangement that came to an end in 1753. Rameau's name crops up with surprising infrequency in the programme listings of the Concert Spirituel. His grand motet In Convertendo is a rare exception; it was poorly received, and it may have been that reception that encouraged him to revise it into the magnificent work we know today.

Llyr Williams

LSO St Luke's Beethoven Piano Sonata Series.

Continuing our recitals containing all 32 of Beethoven's piano sonatas, Llyr Williams (a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist) plays three highly contrasted works. He begins with the young composer stretching his muscles, continues with one of the shortest and least often-heard pieces and ends with a famous sonata that tells a very particular real-life story in music.

Beethoven: Sonata no. 7 in D major Op.10 No.3 for piano
Beethoven: Sonata no. 24 in F sharp major Op.78 for piano
Beethoven: Sonata no. 26 in E flat major Op.81a (Les Adieux) for piano

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b017t1j2)
Bournemouth SO - Ivan Karabits, Liszt, Stravinsky

Live from their home at The Lighthouse, Poole, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Principal Conductor Kirill Karabits perform a colourful programme of music with a variety of Eastern-European accents - from the Ukraine, Hungary and finally Russia - Stravinsky's brilliant ballet-score for Petrushka.

The concert begins with a work by the conductor's late father Ivan Karabits, one of the leading Ukrainian composers of his generation. Orchestra and conductor are then joined by the Macedonian pianist (and former Radio 3 New Generation Artist) Simon Trpceski for Liszt's fascinating 2nd Piano Concerto - a single sweep of music encompassing a huge range of moods. Finally there's one of the very greatest of all pieces of 20th-century music. Stravinsky's extraordinary imagination brings the story of Petrushka the puppet alive in a way that in 1911 was new and exciting - and went on to be much imitated.


WED 22:00 Night Waves (b017t1j4)
Anne Reevell, Literary Tourism, The Mysteries of Lisbon

Philip Dodd speaks to the filmmaker Anne Reevell who has had a ringside seat in history, travelling to Libya - as revolution broke out - with a group of British-based Libyan ex-pats. Anne's three-part documentary charts the volunteers' advance into Libya. Hungry to be involved in their country's uprising, they faced danger and adventure along the way.

Literary tourism took centre stage during the Victorian period when places like Haworth House, home to the Bronte sisters, become a place of pilgrimage for readers. Many writers' homes and birthplaces have similarly become sites for fans to pay homage to their heroes. But commemorating writers in this way can be as much a work of fiction as the writers' own creations were. Professor Simon Goldhill and writer Lucasta Miller take a look behind the scenes of some of the most popular literary tourist destinations.

And Ian Christie reviews 'The Mysteries of Lisbon', a film set in nineteenth century Portugal, by, arguably, Chile's greatest director.

Le Concert Spirituel

Mozart Makes His Mark

Today's programme starts with skullduggery - the underhand negotiations which saw the widow Royer - who had been running the Concert Spirituel with partner Gabriel Capperan since the death of her husband seven years previously - ousted from the directorship and replaced with a triumvirate: Capperan; Antoine Dauvergne, superintendent of the King's Music; and Nicolas-René Joliveau, secretary of the Académie Royale de Musique. Beyond skullduggery, Dauvergne's talents extended to composition; his Concerts de Simphonies are well worth reviving. A celebrity visitor during these years was Luigi Boccherini, an internationally renowned cellist whose playing nonetheless failed to impress everyone. According to one report, he played one of his own sonatas "masterfully"; according to another, "his sounds appeared harsh to the ears and his chords very unharmonious". Approval for François Giroust, however, was unequivocal; in 1768, this maître de musique at Orléans Cathedral won both first and second prize in the Concert Spirituel's prestigious motet competition, and went on to become one of the most popular composers in the final phase of the series. Like Giroust, Henri-Joseph Rigel is no longer a household name, but in the last quarter of the 18th century he was a major figure in Parisian musical life. His oratorio La Sortie D'Egypte was performed no less than 27 times at the Concert Spirituel between 1775 and 1786. On one of these occasions - 15 August 1778 - he shared the bill with an up-and-coming young composer from Salzburg who has remained a household name: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The work in question was his 'Paris' Symphony, specially written for the Concert Spirituel.

RLPO - Mahler's Ninth Symphony

Live from the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
Presented by Stuart Flinders

Tonight's concert contains one work: Mahler's final completed work, the 9th Symphony. Written in the Dolomite mountain peaks of South Tyrol, Mahler knew he was suffering from a heart condition which was to cut short his life in 1911. This was a particularly distraught time - 2 years previously the Mahlers' oldest daughter had died, and their marriage too had become unhappy. Mahler poured all his emotions into this poignantly powerful and heartbreaking work - a masterpiece of the symphonic repertoire.

Is Politics Dead?

Philip Dodd and guests discuss whether the pursuit of economic stability is downgrading democracy.

The inexorable shift in economic power from West to East is mapped by Cassandras and cheerleaders alike but what is the likely impact on international politics?

As Europe struggles to manage the current financial crisis we are seeing un-elected technocrats replace populist leaders and ratings agencies seemingly wielding increasing power. Is this a necessary and temporary intervention of efficiency or are we witnessing a permanent recalibration of Western politics? Is Western Liberal Democracy as we know it a peculiar blip of the twentieth century fed by abundance and now being shooed off by scarcity?

Le Concert Spirituel

Not With a Bang But a Whimper - The End of the Concert Spirituel

Donald Macleod is joined for the last time this week by his studio guests Dr Lionel Sawkins and Beverly Wilcox to discuss the final years of the Concert Spirituel. From 1777 the series was presided over by a new director, Joseph Legros, one of the most celebrated operatic singers of his day. One of his chief innovations was a new emphasis on the work of contemporary composers, among them Mozart and JC Bach, but above all, Haydn - whose music had previously been played from time to time - now became the mainstay of the programming. His Stabat Mater proved enormously popular, but it was his symphonies that received the lion's share of attention. In most cases the concert listings don't specify which symphony was performed on what date, but on 13 April 1784 we are told that the "Symph. où l'on s'en va" was heard - the one we know as the 'Farewell'. The occasion was the last concert of the series to be held in the Salle des Cent Suisses, which had been the venue for the Concert Spirituel right from the start. The new venue - still in the Tuileries Palace - was the Salle des Machines, and it remained home to the concert series until the end of 1789, when larger events intervened; in October of that year, the French royal family were forcibly removed from Versailles and installed in the Tuileries Palace, where they could be kept an eye on. So the Concert Spirituel had to move again. It kept going for a few more months, moving from one theatre to another, then simply fizzled out.


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b017t37m)
LSO St Luke's Beethoven Piano Sonata Series

Khatia Buniatishvili

LSO St Luke's beethoven Piano Sonata Series.

Continuing our recitals of Beethoven's complete piano sonatas, Khatia Buniatishvili (a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist) plays three of Beethoven's most emotional sonatas. She begins with Beethoven's Shakespeare-inspired sonata, nicknamed the 'Tempest', and ends with the 'Appassionata', which is one of his most intense and violent piano sonatas. In contrast to these two stormy sonatas, Khatia Buniatishvili also plays one of Beethoven's lighter, two-movement sonatas: the Sonata No.24 in F sharp major, Op.78.

Beethoven: Sonata no. 17 in D minor Op.31'2 (Tempest) for piano
Beethoven: Sonata no. 19 in G minor Op.49'1 for piano
Beethoven: Sonata no. 23 in F minor Op.57 (Appassionata) for piano

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b017t37t)
BBC NOW - Berlioz's Childhood of Christ

Live from St. David's Hall in Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer directs the BBC National Chorus and Orchestra of Wales in Berlioz's sacred trilogy for Christmas - The Childhood of Christ.

The Christmas story might seem an odd subject for a Romantic composer like Berlioz, more focussed on the passionate expression of opera than retelling ancient Bible stories. It only came into being slowly over four years. The idea began during a game of cards in 1850 when an architect friend asked him to write something for an album. Berlioz began scribbling an Andantino for organ and was immediately struck by the "naïve and rustic devoutness" of the theme. With the addition of a chorus singing goodbye to the infant Jesus, the famous 'Shepherds' Farewell' was born. Over the coming months he added another two movements which combined to become 'The Flight into Egypt', the central movement of his religious drama.

It was another four years before Berlioz completed the outer movements. 'Herod's Dream' sets the scene of the Roman occupation in Palestine. The king is haunted by a nightmare of a child who will be born to overthrow him. As he orders the massacre of the innocents, Berlioz switches his attention to the nativity, and the Angels warning the Holy family to leave for Egypt. The final section, 'The Arrival at Saïs' tells of their journey's end, rejected by the city's inhabitants, until, exhausted they are taken in by a carpenter and invited to stay with his family.

Berlioz brings all his dramatic musical skills to exploit the human emotions of the story, and we follow the action in a very modern, cinematic fashion. At times the score is remarkably simple and sparsely orchestrated, revealing a touching tenderness that never becomes sentimental - Berlioz's naivety is absolutely genuine. The Childhood of Christ was an immediate success with audiences in Paris in 1854 - much to the composer's surprise - and it's remained a Christmas favourite ever since.

The music of Berlioz has been a defining feature of Thierry Fischer's concerts in Cardiff over the last five years, to great critical acclaim. In this, his final season as Principal Conductor with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, tonight's concert promises to be a crowning achievement.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b017t37w)
Dickens Special - with Charles Dance, Rachel Rose Reid and Malcolm Andrews

Ian McMillan returns to the Radio Theatre with Radio 3's Cabaret of the Word. To mark the bicentenary of the birth of Charles Dickens in 2012, Ian celebrates the art of reading Dickens aloud.

Charles Dance reads extracts including the trial scene from The Pickwick Papers. Malcolm Andrews, editor of The Dickensian magazine analyses why Dickens' language works so well in performance. Dickens gave professional public readings in Britain and the United States over the last twelve years of his life. Audiences of 2000 or so flocked to hear him reading favourite episodes from his novels and giving virtuoso impersonations of each of the characters. The vigour of his performances physically exhausted him afterwards.

Verb regular Kevin Jackson gives a guide to the sounds of the names of Dickens' characters. These are names you won't find in a phone book, and are some of the most unique in fiction. Characters such as Sweedlepipe, Honeythunder, Bumble, Pumblechook, and M'Choakumchild are recognizable as Dickensian even by those unfamiliar with the stories.

Christine Collister performs Dickens in song; and queen of the new wave of storytellers, Rachel Rose Reid gives a contemporary twist to the idea of Dickens' night walks - when he walked the streets of London for inspiration.

Producer : Dymphna Flynn.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b017t37y)
Looking and Looking Away

A History of Memory or a Memory of History?

Personal reflections on different aspects of the life, work and influence of WG Sebald by those who knew him, ten years after his death.

WG "Max" Sebald's literary career was at its height when he died in a car crash in December 2001, shortly after the publication of his masterpiece Austerlitz.

WG Sebald was fascinated by photographs. He found in them an essential, evocative counterpoint to his elegiac narratives. His books are strewn with them - enigmatic black-and-white captionless photographs. Never simply illustrative, these images are at once embedded in the prose while remaining disconnected, puzzling and digressive, asking questions and telling their own stories.

Amanda Hopkinson lifts the lid on WG Sebald's own photographic archive.

Presenter AMANDA HOPKINSON.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b017t380)
