Rossini's Il Barbiere Di Siviglia
Live from The Met

The Barber of Seville is Rossini's most popular opera. Written at lightening speed and premiered in Rome in 1816, the story is based on the first play of Pierre Beaumarchais' trilogy, and forms a prequel to Mozart's Marriage of Figaro.

Musical ideas and comical scenes abound as Figaro helps Count Almaviva win the hand of the lovely Rosina. But first the Count and his trusty barber must stop her guardian, Doctor Bartolo, from marrying her himself. The most celebrated moments include Figaro's aria 'Largo al factotum', Rosina's aria 'Una voce poco fa' and their duet 'Dunque io son'.

Diana Damrau returns to the role of Rosina in this 2006 Met production by Bartlett Sher.

SAT 21:30 The Wire (b01c6kjm)
That I Should Rise

Accomplished novelist and dramatist AL Kennedy explores the faltering process of recovery from alcohol dependency with her trademark insight, convincing characterisation, and dark, wry humour. Tim McInnerny plays Simon, a self-destructive drinking father and husband, office worker and pub musician whose life has to get a whole lot worse before there's even a chance of turning a corner.

By turns darkly comic and moving, we follow Simon's initial confusion, despair, and gradual return to life - a new kind of life - within an alcohol recovery programme. He befriends Jean (Harriet Walter), his mentor on the recovery scheme. She's a blind gay woman who's grieving for the loss of her partner. However, we also witness the impact of Simon's alcoholism on his wife (Lia Williams) and children and Julie (Maria Askew), a vulnerable young woman who - for better or worse - befriends him.

'That I Should Rise' is a powerful and insightful play about addiction, self-destructive behaviour, love, and the chance of recovery, accompanied by an impressive R'nB soundtrack.

Harriet Walter..Jean

Olly Bell...Philip

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01bzqpr)
Stephen Evans

Michael Berkeley's guest this week is film producer Stephen Evans. His 14 feature films have received 11 Academy Award nominations, including two wins. In 1989 he and Kennth Branagh founded Renaissance Films, making Henry V, Peter's Friends and Much Ado About Nothing. He then set up Mad George Films with Alan Bennett and Nicholas Hytner for 'The Madness of King George', which won a BAFTA in 1996. He went on to produce Twelfth Night, The Wings of the Dove, and The Luzhin Defence, and executive produced Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, directed by George Clooney, and The Mother, starring Daniel Craig. His latest film is 'First Night', starring Richard E Grant and Sarah Brightman, a romantic comedy based on Mozart's 'Cosi fan tutte'.

Music has always been important to Stephen Evans, and his choices include Alfred Brendel playing the scherzo from Schubert's Piano Sonata in B flat, D960; the exquisite trio 'Soave sia il vento' from Act I of 'Cosi fan tutte;', which plays a major role in 'First Night', part of Mahler's Sixth Symphony, which he loves for its twists and surprises, excerpts from Verdi's Macbeth, which he feels greatly enhances Shakespeare's play, and from Patrick Doyle's film score for Kenneth Branagh's Henry V; the Agnus dei from Rossini's 'Petite messe solennelle', which he finds very quirky, and Bob Dylan singing 'She Belongs to Me'.

SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b01bzqpw)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Sibelius, Elgar

From St David's Hall, Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Japanese violinist Akiko Suwanai performs Sibelius's fiendishly difficult concerto in a programme that opens with the composer's last major work, the symphonic poem Tapiola. Elgar's reflective cantata, The Music Makers, featuring chorus and mezzo-soprano, ends the concert.

Sibelius turned to Tapio, the Finnish god of the forests, to inspire his final symphonic poem, which evokes the dark woods and forest sprites of his homeland. The composer's violin concerto is one of the most technically demanding in the repertoire and shows his understanding of the instrument that he once dreamed of playing professionally. Elgar composed his cantata The Music Makers during a dark period in his life and the piece has a reflective character, quoting extensively from his earlier works.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01bzqq2)
An Olympick Vision

The story of how Britain's Olympic journey started 400 years ago - in the Cotswolds.

It was once thought that the modern Olympics was the brainchild of Baron Pierre de Coubertin alone and put into action in Greece in 1896. The man himself encouraged the myth.

But in this programme former England cricketer Ed Smith goes back to the real rebirth of the Olympic, or rather the 'Olympick', idea and the games held by Captain Robert Dover on the hill above the Cotswold town of Chipping Campden - exactly four hundred years ago, in 1612.

So what was it that sparked this harking back to Ancient Greek culture and sporting endeavour? And why were old English competitions like tossing the Sheaf and cudgeling more important to Dover than Javelin and Discus throwing?

The story of Dover's games is revealed in a book of poems published in 1636. The Annalia Dubrensia included works by Michael Drayton and Ben Jonson, all of them celebrating the Cotswold games and what they stood for. What they stood for, above all else, was mirth and jollity. Astonishingly, they lasted for over 200 years after the hiatus of the Civil War.

With the former Olympic sprinter and historian Peter Radford as his guide, Ed picks his way through the Cotswold games story and questions why Robert Dover's name is only the merest footnote in the Modern Olympic story. And, he asks, why was it that Britain should nurture both the ideas and events that took place every year on Kingcombe Plain, later to be renamed Dover's Hill?

Producer: Tom Alban.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01bzqq4)
Sunset

Russia,1984. Andrei Demidov, an internationally-acclaimed - and controversial - novelist has just been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Outspoken and notoriously critical of the Soviet authorities, Demidov's novel 'Sunset', an exploration of the realities of the Soviet Union's involvement in Afghanistan, has been banned in his homeland, but thanks to the actions of Andrei's English publisher, Michael, has qualified and been awarded literature's most prestigious honour.

Living under a restricted movement order in the countryside outside Moscow with his wife Alexandra, Andrei is faced with a difficult decision. The Soviet Authorities are not about to let one of their most vociferous critics travel to make an acceptance speech in Sweden denouncing the regime to an international audience. They might permit him to leave the country and live out the rest of his days as an exile, never to return to his beloved Russia. Or, he could acquiesce with the authorities, refuse the award, and in doing so ensure the freedom of his estranged son Nikolai.

But in a world where everyone is manipulating everyone else for their own private or political ends, how much autonomy does Andrei really have? Is he master of his own fate, or a pawn in a game with greater stakes than he might imagine?

The history of the Nobel Prize for Literature is no stranger to such controversies. From Boris Pasternak - who was awarded and then rejected the prize for 'Doctor Zhivago' - to Harold Pinter, who used his Nobel acceptance speech to denounce American foreign policy regarding the war in Iraq, the prize has frequently brought into focus the polemics of that eternal triumvirate which Pinter himself addressed in his speech: 'Art, Truth and Politics'. How far should art and artists engage in politics? Is personal veracity more important than utilitarianism? At what price does artistic integrity come? In this new drama for Radio 3, Doug Lucie pits such ideals against that of 'family' as Andrei's own future and that of his wife and son hang in the balance. For Andrei and his family, the prospect of freedom becomes as much of a prize as the award itself - but what exactly is freedom anyway?

Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

Before the 'Glorious' Revolution

Donald Macleod explores Purcell's earliest contributions to the theatre, from a smattering of songs for plays in the 1680s, to his only 'all-sung' work for the stage which has eclipsed all his other theatre music - Dido and Aeneas. Privately performed before the composer had established himself in the professional theatre, it is now the only piece with a secure place in the modern repertoire.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b01bzr2n)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 1

Louise Fryer presents three programmes featuring recent concerts, recordings and a workshop by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales with Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer and Principal Guest Conductor Jac van Steen. On Wednesday we go live to BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff to join the orchestra and guest conductor Thomas Dausgaard with tenor Ben Johnson, one of Radio 3's New Generation Artists.

Dutch conductor Jac van Steen has been Principal Guest Conductor with the BBC NOW since 2005. He brings a depth and insight to nineteenth century repertoire and a particular passion for contemporary music. He is also keen to encourage and nurture new talent.

Jac conducted the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at a concert given a fortnight ago in the grand surroundings of The Memorial Hall at Marlborough College in Wiltshire. It's a semi-circular auditorium of stepped seats, built in 1925 to commemorate the 745 pupils who died in the First World War. Philip Dukes is the Artistic Director of the Music Department at Marlborough, and as a viola player he's a regular collaborator with the orchestra. Today he's the soloist in Richard Rodney Bennett's suite from his score to the 1973 film "Lady Caroline Lamb", a steamy romantic drama starring Sarah Miles as Lady Caroline and Richard Chamberlain as her lover Lord Byron.

Cellist Natalie Clein is firmly established among Britain's leading artists, praised for her mesmerising performances. She's a past BBC Young Musician of the Year and Radio 3 New Generation Artist. Today Natalie plays Schumann's warm and romantic concerto, a perfect opportunity for her to express the lyrical and eloquent nature of her instrument.

Until recently, Welsh composer Guto Puw was Resident Composer with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Last year Jac van Steen took the orchestra them into the studio to record a CD of Guto's music for Signum Classics. Today you can hear a pre-release preview of a work from this disc, '...onyt agoraf y drws...' ('...unless I open the door...'), a BBC commission for the 2007 Proms. It describes an epic medieval adventure from the Mabinogion, a Welsh-language collection of mythological tales.

Earlier this month Jac van Steen led the orchestra in more contemporary music, this time an intensive workshop for new composers. We'll have news of this event and hear a concert performance of one of the best new works to emerge.

Then comes another recent recording and another work for viola and orchestra. Lawrence Power is the brilliant soloist in Flos Campi by Ralph Vaughan Williams (himself a viola player). It's one of his most original and haunting works, inspired by biblical texts from the Song of Songs, but using only a wordless chorus with the soloist and orchestra. This stunning Hyperion recording has already been highly praised for Lawrence's "rich, warm sensuous tone and flamboyant virtuosity" together with conductor Martyn Brabbins' "imaginative flair and masterly orchestral control". The CD has featured as both a Sunday Times Classical CD of the week and a Gramophone Critics Choice 2011.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01bzr2s)
BBC Philharmonic - Wagner, Bruch, Elgar

Live from Nottingham Royal Concert Hall.

Presented by Martin Handley.

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Paul Daniel, perform works by Wagner, Bruch and Elgar.

The festive Prelude to Act III of Wagner's opera Lohengrin opens this evening's concert, before the BBC Philharmonic is joined by Tasmin Little to perform Bruch's Scottish Fantasy. A central figure of German Romanticism, Max Bruch also spent a fair part of his life in Britain and his Scottish Fantasy makes great play with Celtic folk tunes and dances.

Elgar's First Symphony was praised as 'the greatest symphony of modern times' by its first conductor, Hans Richter. There's no denying its energy and epic sweep, but Elgar also finds time for some of his most delicate and poignant music.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01bzr2v)
Free Love, Catholicism, Roger Corman, Red Dog

With Matthew Sweet

Can there ever be such a thing as Free Love? French philosopher Pascal Bruckner and the author Lisa Appignanesi reflect on the legacy of the sexual revolution and the ensuing new contradictions and pressures of modern love.

A new BBC4 series explores what it means to be Catholic in modern Britain. It draws portraits of men, women and children whose lives and identities are shaped by a religion that has recently come under vehement attack, following several child abuse scandals. Piers Paul Read will be exploring what place Catholicism has in modern British public life.

Also, we review a new documentary "Corman's world: exploits of a Hollywood rebel", about the maverick producer and director Roger Corman, who launched the careers of Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, and Peter Fonda among others, all through making commercially successful exploitation B movies away from the big Hollywood studios.

And writer Louis de Bernieres talks about a new film adaptation of his novel Red Dog - about a stray dog who unites a group of miners in a remote Australian village and whose devotion to his master lives on long after the young man's tragic death.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01bzr2x)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Edith Hall

When we think of the nude we usually think of the female nude and in Western art in particular we're often contemplating an image where the artist is primarily concerned with sensuality and desire. If we spare a thought for the male nude at all he tends to appear as a figure symbolising courage and endurance. Both perspectives are, of course, a simplification or distortion. This week's Essay series - Men Only: An Informal History of the Male Nude - is a kind of corrective to that astigmatism.
In the first essay the classicist Edith Hall examines the ideals of the Greeks and the Romans. She begins with Myron's discus thrower from 460 BC and moves via Marilyn Monroe and Leni Riefenstahl to the images of Antinous, the great love of the Roman Emperor, Hadrian. Along the way she rediscovers the shock of her first encounters with the Classical tradition and reflects on the impact this continues to have on our lives today.

Equal with the Best Abroad

In the last five years of his life Purcell was to contribute music to around 50 stage productions. The reign of William and Mary brought about a scaling back of court music, so the composer turned to the theatre as a source of income. He became a more public figure in the process, and began to work with playwrights such as John Dryden, chief poet of the Restoration. With Donald Macleod.

TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b01bzrgh)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 2

Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer is currently enjoying his final season with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. This afternoon Louise Fryer presents a selection of his most recent recordings.

In 2009 Thierry Fischer opened the orchestra's state-of-the-art new home, BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff, with the exciting young Latvian violinist Baiba Skride. Two years later they teamed up again to record a new CD for Orfeo. Today we'll hear two concertos from this soon-to-be-released disc. Stravinsky's neo-classical Violin Concerto is a bright kaleidoscope of music, full of daring contrasts - and notoriously difficult to play. In 1951, twenty years after Stravinsky, Thierry Fischer's Swiss compatriot Frank Martin wrote his Violin Concerto, and like Stravinsky, he owed a great debt to Bach and the music of the Baroque. The solo line is consistently lyrical with long soaring lines, yet Martin doesn't relegate the orchestra to a role of mere accompaniment, he scores in bright and bold colours.

Thierry Fischer has a particular enthusiasm for French music from the twentieth century. Today's programme includes his recording of Mystère de l'instant by the Henri Dutilleux, who visited the orchestra four years ago (at the age of 92) for a festival in his honour in Cardiff. Like the Martin Violin Concerto, Mystère de l'instant was commissioned by the Swiss impresario Paul Sacher, and it describes an experience which amazed Dutilleux one evening at his country house by the river Loire. He was suddenly overwhelmed by birdsong, hundreds of different distinct voices, each with its own individual character. In recreating the mystery of that moment, Dutilleux uses an orchestra of 24 solo strings, together with percussion and a cimbalom.

Charles Marie Widor may be best known for his organ music and in particular a famous toccata, but he was also the composer of songs, ballets, symphonies and concertos. Thierry Fischer's recent Hyperion CD of works for piano and orchestra aims to put Widor in a wider context. The Second Piano Concerto, which lanuches today's programme, dates from 1905, when the composer was 60, but sounds remarkably modern. Adventurous harmonies combine with technically demanding solo writing that bears a closer comparison to Rachmaninov than to Saint-Saens.

And the BBC NOW's biggest piece this afternoon is a highlight from last season at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea, a heartfelt account of Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony. A powerful and personal statement, this symphony was a "make or break" work for Shostakovich after the authorities denounced his Fourth Symphony as "chaos instead of music". This performance clearly demonstrates Thierry Fischer's natural ability to control the drama of the work and reveal the detail in Shostakovich's blazing score.


TUE 16:30 In Tune (b01bzrgk)
Moishe's Bagel, Robin Ticciati

The genre-defying band Moishe's Bagel perform live in the studio with their unique combination of Eastern European dance music, Middle Eastern rhythms, Klezmer and folk music. Made up of some of Scotland's finest instrumentalists, Moishe's Bagel pop into In Tune as they continue their UK tour.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01bzrgm)
LSO - Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich

Live from the Barbican Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Conductor Valery Gergiev leads the London Symphony Orchestra in a concert of Russian classics from the 19th and 20th Centuries.

Tchaikovsky's famous fantasy overture 'Romeo and Juliet' reflects Shakespeare's play by featuring music representing Friar Laurence, the warring Montagues and Capulets and of course the two young lovers themselves. In a full-bloodied romantic score Tchaikovsky captures the passion of the lovers with one of the greatest love themes of all time. Prokofiev's 3rd Piano Concerto was written during the time the composer and pianist spent abroad after the Russian revolution. Interestingly the first recording of the work was made by the composer himself as soloist with tonight's orchestra during a visit to London in 1932. Shostakovich stayed in the Soviet Union throughout the revolution and Stalin's reign of terror and suffered because of it. Criticised by the authorities for his opera 'Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District', the 5th Symphony was supposed to be Shostakovich's apology to his critics. Writing in a newspaper a few days before the premiere he said it was "a Soviet artist's creative response to justified criticism", though many have seen deep ambiguity in the piece: was the ending of the symphony intended as a heroic Stalinist victory hymn or a parody of one?

'Tis Pity She's a Whore, A Small Circus, Jeremy Deller, Carbon Democracy

A new production of the Jacobean tragedy 'Tis Pity She's a Whore opens at the Silk Street Theatre, the Barbican, this evening. Paul Allen hot-foots it from the theatre to the studio to join Anne McElvoy live for a first night review.

'A Small Circus', the literary breakthrough of Hans Fallada is set during the collapse of the Weimar and focuses on a group of farmers demonstrating against tax hikes. First published in 1931, it has been translated for the first time into English by Michael Hofmann who, together with Fallada's biographer, Jenny Williams, discuss the work and legacy of one of Germany's great 20th Century.

Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller reflects on his career as a retrospective of his work opens at the Hayward Gallery this week.

And why the history of the 20th century should be re-written through the medium of Texas tea: Oil. Tim Mitchell's new book Carbon Democracy argues that energy is the way to understand our democratic history.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b01bzrgr)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Partha Mitter

Where is the male nude in Indian art? Is there such a thing? And if he's there for all to see why has he proved invisible to all but the most discerning of Western eyes? The art historian, Partha Mitter, answers all these questions in the second instalment of Men Only- An Informal History of the Male Nude. He explores both the differences and the similarities between the Classical tradition and the Hindu one pausing to recall his own experiences as a 14 year old life artist in Calcuttta and as a not so accidental tourist cowering beneath a giant, erect Jain statue on the outskirts of Bangalore.

Henry Purcell (1659-1695)

Thou Genius of This Isle

Donald Macleod explores Purcell's major collaboration with John Dryden, King Arthur, and looks at some of the characters populating London's theatrical world in the 1690s. A spoken verse drama 'adorn'd with Scenes, Machines, Songs and Dances', King Arthur features the extraordinary Frost Scene. A military hero and British virtues made it appropriate to the current regime, and there was also room for reflection on the new commercial ethos of the times, with songs in praise of Britain's chief exports, fish and wool...

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 3

Elin Manahan Thomas presents the first of a series of concerts, live from BBC Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff, in which the BBC National Orchestra of Wales play works from the twentieth century commissioned by the Swiss impresario Paul Sacher. Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard directs the orchestra in Metamorphosen by Richard Strauss, a profound elegy in the form of a symphonic adagio, written in a remarkable burst of creative energy in 1944 when Strauss was 80. Radio 3 New Generation Artist Ben Johnson sings Mahler's settings of texts by Friedrich Rückert. Mahler identified himself strongly with the nineteenth century poet, and although these five songs were never meant to be a cycle, they share an intense emotional language.

After the concert Louise Fryer presents the BBC NOW on tour around Wales. At the Arts Centre in Aberystwyth, Alexander Shelley conducts more music by Strauss, this time his youthful tone poem Don Juan, a re-casting of the story of the thrill-seeking Don Giovanni in a brilliant display of orchestral virtuosity and colour.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01bzs71)
Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London

Part 1

Live from the Royal Festival Hall

Presented by Suzy Klein

The London Philharmonic Orchestra are joined by leading virtuoso, Joshua Bell for the Brahms Violin Concerto and Vladimir Jurowski leads his orchestra, choir and soloists in an intoxicating early twentieth century masterpiece from Karol Szymanowski which evokes the heady mysteries and beauty of a starlit Persian night.

Wracked by personal crises, Alexander Zemlinsky made a heartfelt cry to God in his setting of the 23rd Psalm. The music moves from trepidation to despair to ecstasy, at once sensitive and majestic. In its glistening bid for the heavenly, it makes a perfect companion to Szymanowski's Third Symphony, The Song of the Night (a setting of Jalaluddin Rumi's Sufi poetry). From a vast nocturnal landscape, a human spirit ascends to join with the divine, soaring into the ether. Languorous sensuality radiates through this all-encompassing score, the final statement in a concert that follows two acknowledged masterworks by Mozart and Brahms with two exquisite 20th-century rarities.

WED 20:00 Discovering Music (b01bzs73)
Szymanowski: Symphony No. 3

Setting the second Divan, Song of the Night, by the thirteenth-century mystical poet Rumi, Szymanowski's Symphony no.3 marks a high point in the composer's Impressionistic style. Forging a link between western musical language and oriental beliefs in those worlds which lie beyond our physically and emotionally conditioned lives, Szymanowski realised that this work for tenor solo, chorus and orchestra, had surpassed his previous compositions. Once the work was complete, Szymanowski commented that "not even a musician like myself can have any idea of what it will sound like with an orchestra." The work has been described by composer Sorabji, as music that is permeated with the very essence of the choicest and rarest specimens of Iranian art...like a Persian painting or silk rug.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01bzsdz)
Moby Duck, The Art of Peace, Appointment with the Wicker Man

Rana Mitter tonight presents the strange story of 28,000 yellow plastic ducks lost at sea in 1992. In his book 'Moby Duck' the author Donovan Hohn has tracked their progress during twenty years afloat. Many of them are still travelling the oceans and in pretty good shape which is good news for plastic duck lovers but bad news for the environment. These toys, designed to go no further than your bath, have given oceanographers new information about the way two thirds of our planet works. But the ducks also have a curious appeal to Hohn as echoes of his youthful dreams permeate his journeys.

And as headlines in this week's papers warn of Britain's involvement in a new cold war with Iran, mounting tension with Argentina over the Falklands, and the continued loss of life in Afghanistan - on Night Waves we examine the art of peace. A new book by John Gittings argues that the world needs to spend more time studying and promoting how to make peace, not war. But given we have had war as long as we have had human beings, is it not part of our nature? And in today's increasingly complicated and over-crowded world, is it naïve to hope for peace? Hew Strachan, Professor of the History of War at Oxford joins Gittings to discuss war and peace.

There's a first night review of the National Theatre of Scotland's production 'An Appointment with the Wickerman' in Aberdeen from Susannah Clapp, and the theatre director Nicholas Kent joins Susannah after the review to discuss how the subsidised theatre is responding to the financial strictures of recession. Is it playing safe?

That's Night Waves tonight with Rana Mitter.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b01bzsf1)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Gabriel Gbadamosi

The male nude in Africa is a vexed, political question. So its perhaps inevitable that the writer and broadcaster, Gabriel Gbadamosi has chosen an olblique, provocative approach to the subject. Drawing on his Yoruba and Irish roots, for the third part of Men Only: An informal History of the Male Nude, he journeys from South London to Nigeria and back again slowly uncovering pleasure as well as paradox. At the beginning and at the end of his exploration he comes face to face with the phallic, trickster god, Eshu - a being at work in traditional sculpture as well as in the photography of the Brixton-based Rotimi Fani-Kayode.

Producer: Zahid Warley

We'll Try a Thousand Charming Ways to Win Ye

This was a bad omen for the United Company, which thanks to financial mismanagement was on the brink of collapse.

THU 22:00 Night Waves (b01bzt3g)
Western Intervention, Rampart, Moral Compass, Aida

The newspaper journalist Marie Colvin, who died yesterday in the besieged city of Homs, was reporting on the plight of the civilian population right up until her death. She wrote that the people of Homs were desperate - and perplexed - asking, 'why has the world forgotten us'? On Night Waves Philip Dodd asks the question - what does it take to tip Western nations towards intervention? Is there a set of key criteria that must be met - and are we nearly there with Syria - or has there been a profound and irreversible cultural shift away from the humanitarian wars of the 1990s, towards wars of national security only.

The new Woody Harrelson film, Rampart, charts the downward spiral of Officer Dave Brown, Vietnam veteran and Rampart Precinct Los Angeles policeman. The city on show here isn't the sumptuous or nostalgic LA of Chinatown or LA Confidential, but the concrete hell of the LA that a lot of people never see. Film critic David D'Arcy reviews what some are saying is a career best performance of Harrelson.

Recent government figures suggest that Britain has become the 'whiplash capital of Europe' with more spurious motoring injury claims than anywhere else on the continent. What has happened to our moral compass that so many of us dishonestly claim what we can get from insurance companies whether we are injured or not? Is this a change that has been exacerbated by recession, people looking out for themselves in hard times? Is it a malaise that connects the riots that spread across the country last summer with an individual filling out an insurance form, and is there historical precedent for a widespread moral breakdown during an economic downturn?

Andrew Dickson will be live at the Royal Albert Hall in London, to give his verdict on tonight's opening performance of Aida. This new production from Raymond Gubbay sees one of the UK's iconic buildings transformed into Ancient Egypt.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b01bzt3j)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Matthew Sweet

One of the weighty and apparently immovable pieces of our mental furniture is the notion that Queen Victoria was a prude. Another is that the Italian Renaissance was a sunny dream where man was always the unapologetic measure of all things. In the fourth part of Men Only: An informal History of the Male Nude, the author and broadcaster, Matthew Sweet, confounds both of these notions. He focusses on a cultural exchange between Queen Victoria and the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Leopold II as well as examining a sixteen inch fig leaf, penectomies and Crystal Palace. Stay tuned!

Liszt's The Legend of Saint Elizabeth

Louise Fryer presents Liszt's oratorio, The Legend of Saint Elizabeth in a performance in the Frauenkirche, Dresden

Suzy Klein - Springtime Special

Suzy Klein presents a special Springtime edition of BBC Radio 3's drivetime programme In Tune, live with an audience from the iconic Radio Theatre in BBC Broadcasting House.

Members of the acclaimed Aurora Orchestra are in residence throughout the programme, ahead of an appearance at the Camden Roundhouse's innovative Reverb Festival. They perform Richard Strauss's late masterpiece Metamorphosen, collaborate in a new arrangement of Scarborough Fair with one of folk music's most influential figures Martin Carthy, and also join up with a rising star of the operatic stage Noah Stewart, described as being "capable of conquering anyone through sheer charisma alone".

The pianist Peter Donohoe also performs live, ahead of his recital at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, and the actor Samuel West reads Shakespeare and Seamus Heaney.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01bztx5)
Live from the Barbican Hall

Sibelius

Live from the Barbican Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Sibelius cycle continues with Symphony No 4 under the Ukrainian conductor Kirill Karabits. They are joined by Georgian pianist Katia Buniatishvili for Prokofiev's virtuosic First Piano Concerto. Stravinsky's brightly coloured ballet Petrushka completes the programme.

Sibelius's stark, elemental Fourth Symphony was inspired in part by the landscape of Northern Karelia and composed at a time when the calm of the composer's life at his lakeside home Ainola was threatened by ill-health. Prokofiev described his Piano Concerto No 1 as his "first more or less mature composition" and the composer's own virtuoso performance at the keyboard at the premiere was sufficient to win him the coveted Rubinstein prize at the St Petersburg Conservatory. Stravinsky's puppet ballet, written to a commission from the great ballet impressario Sergei Diaghilev, tells of the life, death and afterlife of the Russian clown Petrushka in spectacular orchestral technicolour. The BBC Symphony Orchestra is conducted by the star Ukrainian conductor Kirill Karabits, making his debut with the orchestra.

FRI 20:30 Twenty Minutes (b01czc0h)
The Sound of One Hand Clapping

It is 40 years since American composer Steve Reich first performed his Clapping Music; his aim to "create a piece of music that needed no instruments beyond the human body", but his fascinating experiment in phasing and rhythm was by no means the first or the last time clapping has played a part in music.
Musician David Bramwell explores the art of the clap in creating and teaching music - the most widespread forms of rhythm making across the world. He hears from Al Guerra, Miami based creator of the Interactive Metronome, a technique of clapping therapy that helps the brain damaged and uncoordinated.
At Chichester College Jazz Course, saxophonist Simon D'Souza and guitarist Dave Murrell give insight into the way rhythm is taught to the most sophisticated of musical ears - how well you think you can keep time may be challenged, while teacher and performer Lorraine Bowen brings clapping into her pupils lessons with such joy that she makes everyone wish she had been their piano teacher. Finally, world famous composer Steve Reich and Zen guru Bart Simpson aid the revelation of what the sound of one hand clapping is really like.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b01bztx7)
Wendy Cope, Shalom Auslander, Ana Silvera, Ira Lightman

Wendy Cope reads new and rediscovered poems, and discusses her changing attitude towards poetic form. Novelist Shalom Auslander discusses the literary merits of anger, and its uses and abuses. The assembled guests consider which writer they would most like to find living in their loft. Ian chooses Malcolm Lowry, and Wendy isn't sure it's a wise choice. Ira Lightman investigates the wilder shores of poetic expression with voice recognition technology, and there's music from the operatically-coloured and cabaret-shaped place that Yeats called The Rag and Bone Shop of the Heart and Ted Hughes called a house that had been far out at sea all night from Ana Silvera.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01bztx9)
An Informal History of the Male Nude

Sarah Kent

In the fifth and final essay in the series, Men Only, the critic Sarah Kent contemplates the place of the male nude in contemporary art. She examines the differing approaches adopted by male and female artists and ranges from the photography of Robert Mapplethorpe to Sam Taylor-Wood's video of David Beckham .

Producer: Zahid Warley

First broadcast in February 2012.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01bztxc)
Sambasunda Quintet Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, and a studio session with Indonesian band the Sambasunda Quintet. Their ethereal sound is created by three 'kecapi', the Javan boat-shaped zither, and the voice of Rita Tila.

Led by composer and kecapi player Ismet Ruchimat, the Sambasunda Quintet perform pieces rooted in the classical Sundanese tradition, with rhythmic influences from local urban popular music. There are also influences from further afield: one piece brings in elements of Irish folk with the title 'Paddy Pergi Ke Bandung' (Paddy goes to Bandung).
