SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (b01bs9xx)
Live from the Met

Wagner's Gotterdammerung

Wagner's Götterdämmerung
Live from the Met

When the Rope of Destiny breaks and logs from the World Ash are piled around Valhalla, it marks the beginning of the end for the motley bunch of misfits from the fourth and final part of Wagner's epic operatic sequence. As in previous episodes, heroes, gods, dwarves and fresh-water mermaids accompany their scramble for the curse-laden ring with the usual oaths and arguments. But this time, what with cataclysmic fire and flood, there can be no sequel. Götterdämmerung - Twilight of the Gods - means just that.

The Met's no-expense-spared Ring has an impressive cast led by two of the great Wagnerian singers of our time, Deborah Voigt as Brünnhilde and Jay Hunter Morris as Siegfried.

Presented by Margaret Juntwait with guest commentator Ira Siff

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01br1kq)
Raymond Tallis

Michael Berkeley's guest today is one of the most remarkable men of our time. Dr Raymond Tallis has recently been acclaimed as one of the world's leading polymaths. He trained as a doctor and went on to become Professor of Geratric Medicine at the University of Manchester and a consultant physician in the Care of the Elderly at Salford. In 2006 he retired from medicine to become a full-time writer. Over the past 20 years he has published fiction, poetry, and 23 books on the philosophy of the mind, philosophical anthropology, literary theory, the nature of art, and cultural criticism, offering a critique of current predominant intellectual trends and an alternative understanding of human consciousness. His most recent books are 'The Kingdom of Infinite Space', reflecting on the mystery of embodiment, 'Hunger', exploring the basic drives behind humanity, and 'Aping Mankind: Neuromania, Darwinitis and the Misrepresentation of Humanity', a critique which exposes the exaggerated claims made forr the ability of neuroscience and evolutionary theory to explain human behaviour, culture and society.

Music is deeply important to Raymond Tallis. He has chosen the last movement of Beethoven's Quartet Op.135, which asks the existential question 'Must it be?', to which he thinks we may find an answer in the Beatles' classic 'Let it Be'. Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder explore the celebration of death and sex, while Tallis's great motet 'Spem in alium' creates an awesome wall of sound. FInally,the opening aria of Bach's cantata BWV 82 (Es ist genug) is related to Raymond Tallis's own views on assisted dying when an individual feels that 'it is enough'.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01bs9dg)
The Roman de Fauvel

Le Roman de Fauvel is a 14th Century text satirising the tendency of the State and Church towards misrepresentation and fraudulent behaviour. It reads like a great drama divided into two parts. In the first part Fauvel, who is a horse, determines to leave his stable and with the aid of Dame Fortune, take over his master's house. In the second part he is encouraged by Dame Fortune to marry a character called Vain Glory.

The Roman de Fauvel was a huge hit in its day and prompted one copy - now in the Biblioth�que Nationale de France - which attracted a wealth of music, written out alongside the lavishly illumined text. One of the composers is known to have been the great French musician Philippe de Vitry.

The importance of Le Roman de Fauvel is profound. The culmination of European Gothic Art, it is one of the best examples from the medieval world of a spoken drama with music, and is often referred to as the starting point of Philippe de Vitry's Ars Nova.

Catherine Bott looks back on the story and history of the book with the medieval expert Emma Dillon, who has written a book about Fauvel - and features a recording of its music by the Boston Camerata directed by Joel Cohen.

Translations from the text are read by Scott Handy and Caroline Martin.

Myths and Legends, Shillong Chamber Choir

Aled Jones looks at the different ways in which myths and legends have inspired a range of composers including Martinu, Wagner and Sibelius to write choral works, and plays part of a new work by Francis Pott which draws its inspiration from the values of sixteenth century composers like Byrd and Tallis. He also talks to Neil Nongkynrih, the dynamic conductor of the Shillong Chamber Choir, a group from a remote part of North East India, about their kind of choral singing, which ranges from Handel to Bollywood.


SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b01bs9dn)
The Idea of West

Olivia Williams and Sean Arnold with poetry, prose and music on the idea of west, and the West - powerful concepts in many cultures.

In English and Irish thought the west is associated with happiness, the 'land of lost content', the Celtic land of eternal youth. The sun sets in the west, and our western edge is a seemingly endless ocean.

But what if we follow the sun? In America the west was certainly still the promised land for several centuries, though today the mythology is (to say the least) questioned.

From Russia and the Middle East, the West - and Western attitudes - look rather different.

And there's another recurring association of the west in Western thought... death. But a fascinatingly positive view of death.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b00y6ggl)
Endnotes: David Foster Wallace

When David Foster Wallace hanged himself in 2008, at the age of 46, he was considered by many to be the most gifted and linguistically exuberant American novelist and short story writer of his generation. His books include the 1,000-page Infinite Jest, a novel of grand ambition and stylistic experiment that came complete with 388 endnotes. (Footnotes, digressions, constant second guessing of every thought are features of Wallace's signature style).

In April The Pale King, Wallace's final, unfinished novel will be published. Few literary novels have been more eagerly anticipated in recent years. Its great subject is Boredom. Wallace set himself big challenges. Infinite Jest attacked the entertainment industry while trying to entertain and The Pale King engages with boredom as a path toward transcendence.

This Sunday Feature is presented by Professor Geoff Ward, author of a literary history of America. He, like many, was convinced Wallace would be the preeminent American writer to reckon with in the years ahead, and was shocked by his tragic early death. He assesses Wallace's legacy, themes and preoccupations, talking to the precursor Wallace admired most, Don DeLillo, and to friends, collaborators and contemporaries such as Mark Costello and Rick Moody. In the company of the writer's sister, Amy Wallace, Ward travels to the Midwest of America where the writer grew up, and considers the impact of place on his imagination. He also talks to Wallace's publisher and editor Michael Pietsch about the difficult task of assembling Wallace's final fragments into The Pale King.

The programme also contains some rare archive reflections by a young David Foster Wallace, recorded a year before the publication of Infinite Jest, on the role of the writer in an age of media saturation.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01bs9dq)
A Man's World

A Man's World is a compelling new drama following the lives of four violent male offenders thrown together on a six-month rehabilitation course. If they pass, they get a community service order. If they fail, they have to serve their jail sentence. Written by Waking The Dead writer, Adrian Mead.
Attendance is compulsory at The Men's Group as all the participants have recently been convicted of a serious violent crime. This pioneering course works to challenge and radically alter the participants' behaviour by forcing them to confront and recognise why aggression and violence shapes their lives. At stake is their freedom. Upon completion of the twenty-five-week course the courts ask the tutor, the central character Angela (played by Siobhan Redmond), to recommend either a community sentence or a jail term. In the group there is nowhere to hide. Many participants in the real life course have stated that if they had known what they were expected to face, they would have opted for a jail sentence instead - "In your head you're sayin', what are they going to think of me if I really tell them everything? But the other guys see it, and they push you further, to the really dark stuff you never tell no one." The drama captures the terror of facing up to your past and finding new ways to behave, or going to jail. Getting in touch with your feelings doesn't come easily to guys like this, but it is their only way out of jail, and is a hugely important issue for Britain today.

Directed by Turan Ali
A Bona Broadcasting production for BBC Radio 3.v.


SUN 22:00 World Routes (b01bs9ds)
World Routes in Albania

Northern Albanian and Kosovan Music

Lucy Duran heads to the mountainous north of Albania to a folk festival in the remote town of Bajram Curri to hear musicians from across northern Albania and neighbouring Kosovo.

Surrounded by mountains, and only really accessible by ferry across Lake Koman, or by road via Kosovo, Bajram Curri is a town on the Valbona River, where every year a festival celebrating Albania folk traditions is held in a run down outdoor sports arena. Families and local dignitaries crowd the stadium to hear bands singing songs in praise of Albanian honour and hospitality, as well as epic ballads about the country's past heroes. Having spent its history fighting occupations from the Ottoman Empire, and its Slavic neighbours, in the North of the country where the borders of Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia meet, the musical identity is a key part in proclaiming Albania national pride.

Lucy meets bands of Albanian musicians from around the Tropoje region, as well as neighbouring Kosovo, and heads up in to the mountains to an isolated village to record some of the old domestic songs of the region, and hear about arranged marriages. She also meets a Maje Krahu singer, a man who has walked 3 hours from his village to meet her and sing in the old style used to communicate the threat of invasion to the remote villages.

Produced by Peter Meanwell.

Steve Jones, Professor of Genetics, science writer and broadcaster, is an outspoken defender of science against what he sees as the 'anti-science' of creationism. Much of his own research has been concerned with snails and the light that their anatomy can shed on biodiversity and genetics. He is Professor of Genetics at Galton Laboratory, University College, London, and has held visiting posts at many of the world's great universities. A regular broadcaster and writer of popular books on scientific issues, he gave the 1991 Reith Lecture, has written and presented 'Blue Skies', a Radio 3 series on science and the arts and a TV series on human genetics, 'In the Blood', and regularly appears on topical radio and TV programmes. In 2009 he and others called for vital changes to the proposed science curriculum in English primary schools.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01bs9w7)
Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry is Spurred on by Wesley

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music, including the revitalisation of British musical life. Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry (1848-1918).

Parry's own wish to study music, and later also to marry the love of his life, were both frowned upon by his elders, but he eventually achieved both, proving himself to be a man of determination and ability. He would, however, go on to be a victim of his own success, with the nation's lust for oratorios, an area of music in which Parry would be pigeonholed. His works were successful in the UK, but very few ever achieved much further afield, and although he was responsible for heralding a British musical renaissance, the nation would largely forget Parry towards the end of his life, in favour of younger talent. Parry did go on to have an incredible impact upon new composers in his role as Director of the Royal College of Music, and despite ill health throughout most of his life, he was never one to turn a student away or not offer help and advice.

Hubert Parry was born into an affluent family, with certain expectations being placed upon him with regard to his future career and religious beliefs. Parry would go on to fight against these confines, and whilst studying at Eton, he would also pursue his musical ambitions on the side, including composing anthems such as Crossing the Bar. The organ would also prove to be an area of interest to Parry throughout his career, with works such as his Fantasia and Fugue in G. In fact we see Parry in the organ loft with the senior composer Samuel Sebastian Wesley, who encourages the young lad to pursue a career in music.

When Parry went to Oxford, he soon acquired his music degree, and was active in devising musical events in his lodgings, including the performance of chamber music. Parry would go on to compose many chamber works, especially in his early career, including a Nonet. Also whilst still at Oxford, Parry searched out music tutors such as Pierson, who instructed Parry further in the art of instrumental writing. This tuition would eventually feed into larger works, such as his first Symphony.

Music for the Theatre

Episode 9

Each day this week Penny Gore presents music used for a variety of theatrical purposes, including pieces with a religious theme. Debussy composed the incidental music for a modern mystery play about St Sebastian in 1911 even though he was more mystical than religious. Goldilocks - by extreme contrast - was Leroy Anderson's first attempt at a Broadway musical.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01bsbyv)
Camerata Salzburg - Mozart

Live from Cadogan Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer.

Camerata Salzburg, a highly regarded international chamber orchestra brings an all-Mozart programme to Cadogan Hall. An ensemble steeped in musical tradition, today it consists of some of the brightest young musicians around.

The Mozart on show here is the youthful energetic composer in his teens at the Salzburg court. The Divertimento in F is a zesty work for strings, full of light and bounce. His Violin Concerto no.4 is his most technically demanding for the violin, while the Adagio in E was written as an alternative to the slow movement of his Fifth concerto. The Symphony no.29 reveals a new maturity in Mozart's language, a perfect balance between grace and energy, and he still recognized the quality of this symphony himself years later when he moved on to Vienna.

Mozart: Divertimento in F, K.138
Mozart Violin Concerto No.4, K.218
Mozart: Adagio for violin & orchestra, K.261
Mozart: Symphony no.29 in A, K.201

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01bsbyx)
Picasso, Baka Documentary, Speed-Dating, Josie Rourke

With Matthew Sweet

Artist Brad Lochore reviews a new exhibition at Tate Britain:Picasso and Modern British Art. It aims to explore Picasso's evolving critical reputation in Britain and how a range of British artists - from Wyndham Lewis and Henry Moore to Francis Bacon and Graham Sutherland - responded to his work.

Phil Agland talks to Matthew about his new documentary about the Baka people, a rainforest-dwelling pygmy tribe he first filmed 25 years ago in Cameroon, west Africa. The children in that film now have families of their own - how has life changed for the new generation, and is the community coping as the resources needed to lead a traditional Baka lifestyle disappear?

In anticipation of Valentine's Day there's speed-dating with a difference: at last year's Free Thinking Festival at the Sage Gateshead Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers pitched their thoughts to an audience hungry for ideas. They had two minutes per 'date' to persuade their listeners that theirs was the "thinkiest thought". Ian Macmillan was the ringmaster with the Radio 3 honky horn.

And last month Josie Rourke took over from Michael Grandage as Creative Director of London's Donmar Warehouse theatre, once referred to by Stephen Sondheim as 'the greatest theatre in the English-speaking world'. Rourke talks to Matthew about how she intends to make her tenure distinctive and the careful balance of philanthropy and subsidy which has helped the Donmar build such a formidable reputation.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01bsbyz)
On Directing

Roger Michell

In the first essay of the series, Roger Michell reflects on the mix of emotion he feels on the first day of any production, and beckons us to follow as he travels to the location of his 2012 film Hyde Park on Hudson.

A James Cameron film. A Rupert Goold production. The director has become an acclaimed and authoritative figure - even a star in his own right - but the job itself remains the subject of speculation: what does a director actually do? And what is the mysterious 'process' that sees them from idea to first night? In this Essay series, five innovative practitioners of stage and screen reveal the daily grind of a craft which, despite books and interviews on the subject, remains opaque.

Roger Michell's career has spanned theatre, television and film. Earlier in his career, he worked at the Royal Court and the RSC, where he eventually became a resident director. He continues to divide his time between theatre and film, and recent stage productions include Rope (The Almeida) and Tribes (Royal Court). For BBC television he directed The Buddha of Suburbia (1993) and Persuasian (1995). Some of his films include Notting Hill (1999), Changing Lanes (2002), The Mother (2003), Enduring Love (2004), Venus (2006) and Morning Glory (2010), as well as Hyde Park on Hudson (2012).

The series is produced by Sasha Yevtushenko.

First broadcast in February 2012.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01bsbz1)
Jazz in Warsaw

Jez Nelson presents music from Warsaw's distinctive jazz scene. In the last few years the Polish capital has become one of the most exciting centres of European jazz, with a host of young musicians exploring everything from Chopin to electronic music. The programme includes a live performance by Osaka Vacuum - a sax/cello/drums free-jazz trio led by British ex-pat Ray Dickaty - and a specially recorded session by twin brothers Marcin and Bartlomiej Oles.

Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry Goes Into Insurance

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

Whilst still at Oxford, Parry was very active in musical activities such as the Exeter College Musical Society. This gave him the opportunity to hear many of his own works, such as songs and partsongs. Parry would continue to compose music for the voice throughout his career, including songs such as More fond than Cushat Dove, and the partsong What voice of gladness.

When Parry left Oxford, he went into insurance much to the pleasure of his father. This also provided Parry with a level of respectability, which his future mother-in-law very much approved of, eventually allowing him to marry her daughter Maude. Throughout his early career with Lloyds, Parry continued his musical activities, always searching for a piano and a composition teacher to support him. He continued to compose around this time, including works for the piano such as his Charakterbilder.

Parry's search for musical support brought him to the pianist and teacher Dannreuther, who frequently held his own chamber music gatherings. This allowed Parry the opportunity to compose and hear his works, such as his first Piano Trio. Dannreuther and Parry also both shared a love for the music of Wagner, which can be heard in Parry's orchestral work Concertstuck, composed after he'd visited Beyreuth.

Presented be Ian Skelly Live from St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge in London

For St Valentine's Day, Ian Skelly introduces a concert of choral music which explores some of the many facets of love - sacred and secular, human and divine.
Live from St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, the BBC Singers with Principal Guest Conductor Paul Brough are joined by piano duettists Richard Pearce and Gavin Roberts in lovesongs which range from Francis Poulenc's witty reworkings of old French folk tunes to Johannes Brahms' collection in waltz-time. In between come Daniel-Lesur's settings of erotic verse from the Biblical Song of Songs, and Peter Cornelius' trilogy of highly-charged 17th-century poems expressing the love of the enraptured human soul for the divine. And, keeping matters firmly in the secular sphere, three songs by Cole Porter and Richard Rodney Bennett's setting of 18th C Scottish words are a reminder that the course of true love rarely runs smooth.

Some Bloom in Darknesss

Simon Van Booy's story of unreal love is set in a silent Paris, covered with snow, where the search for love is unreal, problematic even..

"His life went back to normal until one day, after almost ten years, he witnessed a violent incident at the railway station where he worked as a clerk. The desires suddenly returned, and soon enough, Saboné's eyes burned for the girl who stood in a shop-window on his walk to work. She was very pretty. And Saboné assumed he had passed her many times before. but for some reason, he had never noticed her. In addition to this new passion, Saboné caught himself doing odd things, like talking to birds and removing his hat whenever he passed statues in the gardens.

For days, he held the image of the shop-girl in his mind.."

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01bw8lr)
Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry and the Birth of Modern English Music

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

Parry in his early thirties was enjoying the support and friendship of the pianist Edward Dannreuther. This friendship would allow Parry the chance to compose and hear many chamber works at his mentor's chamber evenings, including his Violin Sonata in D major, composed at the request of Dannreuther.

Parry's status as a composer would soon be on the up, with a commission from the Gloucestershire Festival. His response was the choral work Prometheus Unbound, which some say heralded the birth of modern English music. This popularity in writing choral music would develop further, allowing Parry the opportunity to write one of best known scores, Blest Pair of Sirens.

Parry was now appointed a teacher at the newly established Royal College of Music, and colleagues would soon be criticising him for his interest in Wagner. Like Wagner, Parry was attracted to the art from of opera. Yet unlike Wagner, Parry's only attempt in the form, Guenever, was a total failure. During this time though Parry did compose one of his most popular orchestral works, his third Symphony, nicknamed The English.

Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Parry Becomes Director of the Royal College of Music

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

Parry had hit the big time! His Blest Pair of Sirens had proved to be popular, and a number of other choral commissions followed, including the chance to write an oratorio, Judith. Although rarely heard in its entirety today, many will recognise one of the tunes as the hymn Dear Lord and Father of Mankind. Other choral works followed, such as Job, although Parry detested the nation's lust for oratorios, and soon found himself pigeonholed in the category of an oratorio composer.

Other commissions came Parry's way though, such as composing incidental music for the stage. One such play was The Frogs, which caused wild uproar. Then followed another stage work, Hypatia, although the composing of this was at a time when Parry's health was not good. Parry had always suffered from poor health, and now his doctors were advising him regular trips abroad for peace and quiet, and time away from work. This was hard to achieve, as Parry had just been appointed Director of the Royal College of Music.

Along with this appointment at the RCM, and with his commissions increasing, Parry's status was now at an all time high. For the anniversary celebrations of the composer Purcell, Parry would compose one of his best choral works, Invocation to Music. Also at this time he'd write his only orchestral work to become popular abroad, the Symphonic Variations.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall

Beethoven

Christoph von Dohnányi conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in Beethoven's Symphony No 4 and Brahms' German Requiem.
Brahms first considered writing a Requiem Mass after the death of his close friend Robert Schumann, but it was only a decade later, after the death of his mother caused him inconsolable grief , that he began the project in earnest. The contemplation of mortality he produced is unlike any conventional Requiem Mass.
Ein deutsches Requiem sets sections of Luther's translation of the Bible, dwelling more on the hope of the resurrection than on the fear of Judgement Day. The first movement, 'Blessed are they that mourn', consoles those that remain on Earth. The work moves towards the dramatic highlight of the resurrection of the dead, yet ends back on an earthly level, a reminder that we cannot know what awaits us.

Brahms: German Requiem

Brahms' German Requiem is often presumed to be a nationalistic, Teutonic celebration. Yet this couldn't have been further from the truth. "I confess, I should have gladly left out 'German' and substituted 'Human'", the composer once wrote.

Stephen Johnson explores the work's influences - from Bach's cantatas to the tragic death of Brahms' mentor, Robert Schumann - and looks at the universal appeal of this very 'humane' requiem.

On Directing

Josie Rourke

Josie Rourke, the Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse, reminds us that working in theatre isn't always plain sailing. In her essay, she looks at what happens when disaster strikes and things go wrong. It's in these situations that a director is truly tested.

Josie Rourke trained with directors Peter Gill, Michael Grandage, Nicholas Hytner, Phyllida Lloyd and Sam Mendes. Before coming to the Bush she worked for five years as a freelance director and was the Associate Director of Sheffield Theatres and Trainee Associate Director at the Royal Court. At the Royal Court she directed Loyal Women by Gary Mitchell. She was the tour director of The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. For the Royal Shakespeare Company she directed Believe What You Will and King John.

Rourke was the Artistic Director of the Bush Theatre between 2007 and 2011, where she also directed many of its hits including Nick Payne's If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet. In 2011, Rourke directed a production of Much Ado About Nothing at Wyndham's Theatre, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate. She became Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse in January 2012 and her first production as director was George Farquhar's The Recruiting Officer.

The series is produced by Sasha Yevtushenko.

Parry Is Nearly Sunk by a Warship

He was considered the nation's unofficial composer laureate with hits such as Jerusalem, and was knighted by Queen Victoria for his services to music including the revitalisation of British musical life - this week Donald Macleod focuses upon the life and music of Sir Hubert Parry.

During the last twenty years of Parry's life, although he was an important part of the British musical scene, knighted by Queen Victoria, and Director of the Royal College of Music, his own music would soon be forgotten and overshadowed by the works of his friend Elgar. Parry would still compose two scores, which would prove to be his most popular and enduring. Jerusalem, which is considered to be Britain's second national anthem, was composed for a war organisation during WWI. The second, his anthem I was Glad, was composed for the coronation of Edward VII, and has since been used at many royal occasions.

Parry's health was deteriorating greatly, and he had to start giving up various teaching and committee obligations. Throughout his career he had always continued to compose the odd work for organ, or set of songs based on English lyrics. There was an Indian summer for Parry when his works were briefly back in vogue, which saw the composition of his fifth symphony. However, with the outbreak of war, his health soon started to go downhill, as he was required to work more and more on his own estate in the chopping down of trees. This was a period when Parry would hear of the death of many of his students at the front, and suffer himself from depression. Parry died a month before the armistice, and at his funeral was performed one of his last composed works, his a cappella Songs of Farewell.

New York Philharmonic - Ades, Berlioz, Stravinsky, Ravel

Alan Gilbert conducts the New York Philharmonic at the Barbican in Thomas Adès' Polaris and music by Berlioz, Stravinsky and Ravel.
The New York Philharmonic has been always been a committed advocate of contemporary music - giving premieres of works by Dvorák, Rachmaninov, Gershwin and Copland, amongst others. It also gave the first performance of one of tonight's works, Stravinsky's dramatic Symphony in Three movements, and it's a tradition that continues with a UK premiere by Thomas Adès, whose Polaris was written for the opening of Frank Gehry's new concert hall in Miami. Two great works from the French tradition complete the programme - music from Ravel's Daphnis and Chloe, and Berlioz's song Les nuits d'été, featuring the mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b01bwbkk)
Angela Carter Celebration, Daljit Nagra, Mark Ravenhill and Martin Rowson, Mick Jackson

This week Marina Warner and Christopher Frayling join Ian McMillan to mark the twentieth anniversary of Angela Carter's death with a celebration of her writing. The actress Sian Thomas brings Carter's incredible stories to life.

Poet Daljit Nagra shares a very first look at his new work in progress, a verse retelling of the Hindu epic The Ramayana which recounts Rama's battles with the demon Ravanna and his romance with Sita. Daljit's new version of the story is written in a bolshy, modern, non-standard English with a streak of the lyrical that pulls the ancient tale into the twenty first century.

Dramatist and playwright in residence at the Royal Shakespeare Company Mark Ravenhill and political cartoonist Martin Rowson join Ian to celebrate satire and push against the tyranny of good taste as they share their versions of literary classics in Limerick form.

And Booker shortlisted novelist Mick Jackson, author of The Underground Man and The Widow's Tale, has written a new short story for The Verb inspired by his residence at the Science Museum.

Producer: Allegra McIlroy.
