Schumann's Op.24 Liederkreis (song-circle or cycle) consists of 9 Heine settings - products of the very happy year after he'd married the love of his life.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b019lzn3)
Not Quite Cricket

In 1868, the first Australian cricket tour of England took place; the team was made up of Aboriginal men from the western plains in the state of Victoria. Based on historical documents, Not Quite Cricket tells the story from the Aboriginal team's perspective, in particular through the experience of Yanggendyinanyuk - a Wotjobaluk warrior (named Dick-a-Dick by the colonial management).

Richard Kennedy is Yanggendyinanyuk's great great grandson, and it is through him and his family that some of the text was translated and spoken (by Richard) in the Wergaia language. This language is currently being reconstructed from 19th century sources; over 100 years of silence marks the destruction of the Wergaia peoples and their culture.

Although a punishing schedule of cricket matches was played, there were other more sinister motives for the trip.
Are the patronising racist attitudes heard in Not Quite Cricket a distant harmless memory of the 1860s, or were they inherent in the development of the pseudoscience of eugenics and its aftermath?

Richard Kennedy (Yanggendyinanyuk, Wergaia translation), Warren Foster (Aboriginal cricket team narrator), Andrew McLennan (Master of Ceremonies).
Hollis Taylor (violin), Anthony Pateras (piano), Rishin Singh (trombone, tuba), Laura Altman (clarinet, whistle), Jon Rose (violin, piano, voice).
Text written by, music composed by Jon Rose.

Additional contributions from Jane Ulman, Nick Shimmin, Corinne Vernizeau, Adam Mountford.

Olivia Williams

The British actor Olivia Williams is pursuing an equally successful career in film and TV on both sides of the Atlantic. After spending three years at the RSC she played Jane Fairfax in the 1996 British TV film of Jane Austen's Emma. The following year she was screen tested by Kevin Costner and made her Hollywood debut in 'The Postman', later winning the lead role of Rosemary Cross in Wes Anderson's 'Rushmore' (1998). She went on to star as Bruce Willis's wife in 'The Sixth Sense' (1999), and has appeared in several British films including 'Lucky Break' (2001), 'The Heart of Me' (2002), for which she won a Best Actress award, and 'An Education' (2009). She played Mrs Darling in the latest film adaptation of Peter Pan. On TV she took the title role in the 2008 film 'Miss Austen Regrets', and was cast as Adelle DeWitt in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse (Fox TV, 2009-10). She is currently starring opposite 'Lost's' Matthew Fox on stage in London's West End in Neil LaBute's play 'In a Forest Dark and Deep'.

Olivia Williams grew up in North London surrounded by music, and her personal favourites include 'The trumpet shall sound' from Handel's Messiah and the opening of Mendelssohn's Elijah, both of which she sang in at school. She also chooses the Prelude from Bach's G major cello suite, played by Pablo Casals, which was the first classical piece she discovered for herself; the second movement of a Vivaldi mandolin concerto; a psalm setting by the 16th-century Spanish composer Diego Ortiz, which she loves for its earthy quality; Arvo Part's 'Tabula Rasa', which she uses as a 'prop' to make her cry; the cadenza of Brahms's Violin Concerto, which her father hoped she might play (she went into acting instead), and the opening of Mahler's Second Symphony (the 'Resurrection').

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b011cjkz)
The Gothic

This week Words and Music takes you into the darkened, turreted recesses of The Gothic. From the surreal, macabre beginnings of the genre in Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto to the tortured wanderings of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein; the gothic literary world is one of dark passions and ominous thrills. Work by Coleridge and Keats shows the romantic impulse which was extended and darkened by later gothic writing, arriving in the late nineteenth century at Oscar Wilde's haunting Picture of Dorian Gray. Musically, we venture back to the 12th century with the work of Pérotin who composed amidst the gothic splendour of Notre Dame cathedral, as well as pieces by Bach, Berlioz, Paganini and Rachmaninov.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b00wlj9d)
The Little Prince Died at Dawn

Screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce soars amongst the winged words and short life of pilot and writer Antoine De Saint-Exupéry whose career began and ended in the air.

Pilot, poet, philosopher, journalist and inventor; Antoine De Saint-Exupéry (read by David Morrissey) opened the skies and the deserts to an astonished readership and left behind the most beautiful words on flight as well as The Little Prince.

He flew the perilous mail routes over mountains, sea and desert in the 1920's & 30's. Vividly conveying the danger and beauty in works such as Southern Mail and Night Flight, becoming a literary star in the process. By 1940, already ageing, and with a broken body from numerous crashes, he flew several high risk reconnaissance missions as France fell. For this he was awarded the Croix de Guerre.

He transformed this nightmarish experience into Flight to Arras his final aerial testament. Now exiled to America, in support of Free France, he found unexpected riches and adulation. There he began his most famous work, The Little Prince. But the call of the air and of duty was too strong for St Ex In 1944 he resumed operational flying.

Barely able to squeeze his bulky and battered frame into the cockpit of his unarmed P38 Lightning, St. Ex flew over his beloved France photographing enemy targets. On July 31st 1944 he vanished. Like the final instructions from his beloved creation, Little Prince, many have been waiting for his return ever since.

SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b019m11n)
Things Might Change or Cease

When Maggie sees an illusionist on television she becomes convinced that he is her half-brother and that through him she and her sisters Lena and Nell will finally find the father, Austin Birtwhistle, who walked out on them 37 years before.

Linda Marshall Griffiths' original play explores illusion and disillusion, the boundaries of love and the extremes of grief as a family, fractured by abandonment, tread the emotional hinterland of reconciliation. Echoing Shakespeare's King Lear, we see Austin, an old man, raving on Brighton Beach, as he wanders through the gaps in his own life, conjuring all the things he left behind.

SUN 22:00 World Routes (b019m11q)
World Routes in Madagascar

Episode 5

Lucy Duran's in Madagascar to record the island's unique traditional music. This week, she's in the sleepy seaside town of Tulear, home of musician, wrestler and magician Mandindry. Plus she takes a small boat to the remote community of Anakao where she meets a group who play mandolins stringed with fishing line, and has to kill a goat in order to visit the grave of renowned local musician Robert Rindy. Producer James Parkin.

In January 2010 World Routes broadcast three programmes made on the high central plateau of Madagascar. In January 2012, Lucy Duran and the team continue the journey, moving from the plateau down to the coast in the far south. As with all World Routes on-location programmes, all the music was specially recorded in or near the homes of the musicians. This mysterious island is full of extraordinary animal and plant life - home to more unique species than just about anywhere on the planet. But for us, what makes this island of strange dreams, ancestral worship and sorcery so special is its music. And, like the natural life, its unique evolution - neither African nor Asian - makes it a wonderful melting pot of instruments and styles.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00vw4f3)
Benjamin Britten (1913-1976)

Episode 1

Donald Macleod reveals some of the wealth of music English composer Benjamin Britten wrote during his remarkably successful career in the light of two enduring influences - his life partner, the tenor Peter Pears and his beloved native county of Suffolk.

The BBC helped advance Britten's career by broadcasting two chamber pieces he had composed while still a student at the Royal College of Music. He was soon writing soundtracks for the GPO Film Unit as well as incidental music for the theatre, TV and radio. In programme 1, Donald introduces music from those early years including one of Britten's best known soundtracks for the GPO - 'Night Mail', and two works written during his wartime years in America - the Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo, written for Pears, and his first opera, based on the story of the mythological lumberjack, Paul Bunyan.

MON 20:10 Twenty Minutes (b010xy9s)
A History of the Interval

We know that the dramatists of Ancient Greece presented their work in a festival that lasted days and was both competitive and religious. But, following the inexorable horror of Oedipus's tragedy, did the audience have a break? Some dramas of the Middle Ages actually began in the interval, inasmuch as they were performed during pauses in the liturgy. Shakespeare's plays were originally performed without a break, though members of the audience came and went as they pleased. But by the middle of the 19th century full curtain calls were taken at the end of the first act. Today, at Glyndebourne, no matter how urgent the drama, the performance stops long enough for everyone to have a full meal and a snooze, before returning to the opera. But the National Theatre's current production of 'Frankenstein', which lasts two hours, is played straight through, to the discomfort of some of those not forewarned.
In this interval feature the writer and broadcaster Paul Allen explores the interval itself. He talks to a conductor, a director, performers, a bar person and audience members to find out how and when the interval came about; its purpose, physical, social and economic; and its dramatic and musical effect.

Producer: Julian May.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b019m3gb)
The Sound and the Fury

Episode 1

The author and journalist Andrew Martin has phonophobic traits, which call for some extreme actions:

"So I went out to buy my first box of earplugs. I must have bought... well, about a box a month ever since. The best ones are made of wax; they're covered in cotton wool and they're about the size of aniseed balls. You get twelve in a box. Soon I know I'd become addicted to them. I had also, by then, become addicted to the use at night of electrical fans for the creation of 'white noise'. I kept them going all night long..."

In the first of five essays, author Andrew Martin lays bare his life as a 'phonophobic'. How to cope with jarring sounds in the modern world? And is there an another way to live without the daily cacophony?

Producer Duncan Minshull

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b019m4pn)
London Symphony Orchestra - Debussy, Berlioz

Michael Tilson Thomas returns to conduct the LSO in music by Debussy, in this his 150th anniversary year. The enigmatic quality of Debussy's piano Preludes has been magically captured in these orchestrations by Colin Matthews. The piano Fantaisie has an intriguing history, as Debussy withdrew it from publication just before the first planned performance. It was revived after his death, and deserves to be better known.

The work concluding the concert is by a Frenchman dramatically different in style to Debussy - Berlioz. His Symphonie fantastique recounts the doomed love affair of a man who has poisoned himself with opium, causing hallucinations of a masked ball, the countryside, a march to the scaffold and finally a witches' Sabbath.

Anne McElvoy looks at the ways in which a civilised society can deal with the perpetrators of unspeakable crimes. Plus a first night review of 'The Trial of Ubu', Simon Stephens' satirical new play which explores the central legitimacy and effectiveness of international law.

And rather than mocking religions, atheists should steal from them. Alain de Botton on why he believes religions still have some very important lessons to teach the secular world. He's joined by the eminent psychiatrist Roy Baumeister, the author of "Willpower", which explores what we can learn from religions to improve our self-control.

And on the day that Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar for her role in The Iron Lady, is Hollywood warming up to strong women - at the same time as female directors warn of a 'celluloid ceiling' barring their success?

And a review of George Clooney's new Oscar-nominated film The Descendants.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b019m5wm)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - Weber, Dvorak, Sibelius

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Principal Conductor Kirill Karabits performs Weber's overture Oberon, Dvorak's Cello Concerto (with Gautier Capucon as soloist) and Sibelius's 5th Symphony.

Weber's Shakespeare-inspired opera Oberon has never really caught on. It's overture, though, has become a favourite and it begins with a portrayal of the magical forest where Oberon lives - a great moment for the horns!
Dvorak's concerto for the cello is one of the most famous of all and he wrote it while living in the United States. It's lyrical sound-world hides both a story of personal tragedy for the composer as well as an exile's longing for home. While working on his 5th Symphony Sibelius said that it was 'as if God the Father had thrown down pieces of a mosaic from the floor of heaven and asked me to work out the pattern.' It took him a while to solve the puzzle but what he eventually produced has become one of his best-loved works - by turns intimate, powerful and exciting.

Presented by Catherine Bott

Orchestre National de France - Schubert, Berg

Live from the Theatre des Champs-Elysees, Paris

Tonight we join with Radio France in Paris as Daniele Gatti and the Orchestre National de France perform masterworks by Schubert and Berg.

Two works by Schubert open the concert - his sublime 'Unfinished' 8th Symphony is followed by Carl Reinecke's orchestration of his 'Shepherd on the Rock' a song of a lonely shepherd high in the mountains which swings from despair to hope and which is sung tonight by soprano Chen Reiss. She returns in the second half to perform the suite Berg made from his opera Lulu, a dark tale of seduction and murder with richly scored music.

Tonight's concert takes place in the Theatre des Champs-Elysees which has been the home to the ONF since 1944 and was famously the venue for the riotous first performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. The orchestra itself is run by Radio France and tonight's conductor Daniele Gatti is the latest in a long line of distinguished Music Directors including Charles Munch, Sergiu Celibidache, Lorin Maazel, Charles Dutoit and Kurt Masur.

Iran

Rana Mitter presents a special programme on Iran. The Almeida Theatre's production of The House of Bernarda Alba is set in Iran and there's a first night review. The Iranian film A Separation has just been nominated for an oscar and what's special about this film is that it has reached a wide audience both inside and outside the country in which it was made. This is not an auteur's film for the European festival audience only. What does it tell us about what is it like to be an Iranian living at home today?

And as newspaper headlines continue to talk about 'tightening the screw' of sanctions and American aircraft carriers enter the Straights of Hormuz how does the world, and Britain, look from Tehran? How much do we in Britain really know about a country that we are often told is dangerous, destabilising to its geographical region, and a nuclear danger? Are we at a flashpoint that could degenerate into war or is this Middle Eastern politics as usual? Rana Mitter talks to Professor Ali Ansari , Director of the Iranian Institute at the University of St Andrews, Nader Mousavizadeh of Oxford Analytica, the poet and teacher Narguess Farzad, artist and broadcaster Fari Bradley, Professor Charles Melville of Cambridge University and Dr. Saeed Zeydbadi-Neyad of the School of Oriental and African Studies.

[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b019m8n8)
Live from the Usher Hall, Edinburgh

Debussy, Prokofiev

Debussy Nocturnes
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No 1

A rare performance of Roussel's thrilling and jazz-influenced ballet music Bacchus et Ariane together with the ethereal first violin concerto by Prokofiev makes for an evening of great drama conducted by Stephane Deneve.

Hilary Hahn (Violin)
Royal Scottish National Orchestra
Stéphane Denève (Conductor)
Ladies of the RSNO Chorus
Tim Dean (Chorus Director).


FRI 20:00 Discovering Music (b019m8nb)
Roussel's Bacchus et Ariane

Albert Roussel became a successful composer almost by accident. Born in 1869, he was a passionate mathematician and - perhaps improbably - navy man, who served several years aboard ships in the French colony of Cochinchina (now Vietnam).

It was only after resigning from the Navy at the age of 25 that Roussel turned to composition; yet still for several decades his pupils - among them Erik Satie and Bohuslav Martinu - were to be more feted than their teacher. This was to change with the debut of his ballet "Bacchus et Ariane" at the Paris Opera in 1931, choreographed by the great dancer Serge Lifar.

Stephen Johnson gets under the skin of the incisive, neo-classical elan of Roussel's masterpiece.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b019m8yy)
Peter Redgrove, Jane Urquhart

Peter Redgrove is considered on the most important poets of the late twentieth century. His poems celebrate the natural world and the human condition and are known for their visual imagination. As a new edition of his collected poems is published, his biographer and editor Neil Roberts and the novelist Gerard Woodward discuss his life and work.

Jane Urquhart has written poetry, short fiction but is best known for her novels. She is one of Canada's leading authors - and most award-winning. She reads a new story especially written for the Verb. Jane's won praise for the way she describes the human need to remember and memorialise those who have departed in novels like the Stone Carvers and The Underpainter, which won Canada's most prestigious literary prize, The Governor General's Award.
