SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b01hjlrx)
John Adams's The Death of Klinghoffer

John Adams's The Death of Klinghoffer
Presented by Andrew McGregor

John Adams and his librettist Alice Goodman always knew that using the 1985 hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro as the basis for an opera would be a hot potato. But quite how hot, even he couldn't have predicted. The controversy surrounding 'The Death of Klinghoffer', with its grisly plot including the murder of an elderly, disabled American Jew, has never abated since its 1991 premiere in Brussels. It has taken over twenty years for it to be staged in this country and this production, directed by Tom Morris and recorded at English National Opera, is the first at a British opera house. Andrew McGregor explores the opera's themes and controversy with Penny Woolcock, who herself directed a film of 'Klinghoffer'. And in the interval, former BBC Middle East correspondent Tim Franks throws light on the political background of the region in the mid-80s.

SAT 21:00 The Wire (b00yy8x3)
The Wall

by Ed Harris

Paul and Anna wake up one morning to find their neighbourhood has been enclosed by a wall. The gates are guarded and anyone wanting to cross into the rest of the city has to apply for a pass.

They are told the Wall is there to protect them against violence between rival postcode gangs. They are told that their local community is being challenged by central government to do more for themselves. They are told that only certain individuals will qualify for a pass. And that they don't.

The Wall takes a provocative look at growing social inequality, using an image we're more used to seeing as a symbol of divided cultures abroad - in Gaza, or Baghdad, or Berlin, or in the ghettoes of the second World War - and to explore the unseen divisions in our own cities. The Wall doesn't just divide neighbourhoods. Soon it's tearing apart the people inside them.

Paul ..... Javone Prince
Anna ..... Louise Brealey
Joyce ..... Dona Croll
Hugh ..... Sam Dale
Kasey ..... Jessica Raine
Dylan ..... Nyasha Hatendi
Clarence ..... Sean Baker
Alex ..... Stuart McLoughlin
with Jo Monro

Producer/Director: Jonquil Panting

The writer Ed Harris spent time as a binman, husky trainer and care worker, before finding his way first to performance poetry, and then to drama. He's been Writer on Attachment at the Chichester Festival Theatre, where his epic play, LUCY, won the Chichester Festival Theatre Slams. His play NEVER EVER AFTER for Chalkfoot, was short-listed for the Meyer-Whitworth prize, and for his own theatre company, Squaremoon, he's written THE COW PLAY and TOTAL. He's currently writing MONGREL ISLAND for the Soho Theatre.
His plays for radio include ABSOLUTE SILENCE, PORSHIA, starring Robert Webb, AROMATHERAPY, starring Martin Freeman, THE MOMENT YOU FEEL IT, starring Richard Briers and Rory Kinnear, and TROLL, starring Rosie Cavaliero and Jack Klaff.

SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01hjmfp)
The Wild, the Lame and the Indifferent

A journey through the multi-faceted solo keyboard music that the 18th Century Jean-Philippe Rameau composed in his long career, introduced by Lucie Skeaping.

Rameau's first compositions were for the harpsichord and throughout his life he produced a rich and varied collection of short works for the instrument, many of which represent some of the greatest solo keyboard music of the French Baroque. Some of the pieces are dances; others are explorations of compositional and keyboard techniques; while others again are "character pieces" with colourful titles such as "The Wild", "The Lame" and "The Indifferent".

Lucie Skeaping looks back over the music, explaining a little about the ideas and background to the pieces, and introduces a range of recordings from Sophie Yates, Christophe Rousset, Celine Frisch and Alexandre Tharaud amongst others.

SUN 17:00 Sunday Feature (b01hjmnn)
The Heritage Wars

With four million members, The National Trust is more popular than ever and English Heritage has recently seen its membership boom. The historian Dr. Anna Whitelock explores the UK's love affair with its past and examines how the heritage industry is battling for our money.

Anna talks to the leading figures in the heritage industry: Simon Jenkins, Chairman of the National Trust; Carole Souter, Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery fund, with a funding purse of 340 million; and Simon Thurley, Chief Executive of English Heritage.

Anna also visits popular heritage attractions to find out what their appeal is and why they are being successful during the recession. In order to increase profitability, families have postively been encouraged at heritage sites around the UK. Whilst there's been much success with "the Waitrose families", the industry is keen to attract "the Tesco families".

In recent years, the ideas of historical interpretation have shifted. The accent is on making the visitor feel more immersed in a historical location - people are encouraged to dress up, the barriers have been removed in some houses and interative exhibits are children friendly. So when you visit Hampton Court Palace, you can bump into Henry VIII and his entourage but Anna asks how authentic these historical interpretations are.

Anna also talks to Carole Souter, the Chief Executive of the Heritage Lottery fund to find out what criteria is applies to lottery grants and asks whether the money goes towards initiatives which reflect the profiles of those who contribute the most to the Lottery fund, the punters.

A Midsummer Night's Dream

In midsummer week, Radio 3 enters one of the most potent sources of the human imagination. 'Into the Forest' explores the enchantment, escape and magical danger of the forest in summer, with slow radio moments featuring the sounds of the forest, allowing time out from today's often frenetic world. and another chance to hear this summer production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest. The story takes place in Midsummer and is a complex farce featuring Hermia and Lysander, Helena and Demetrius. Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated still further by entering the forest where Oberon King of the fairies and his queen Titania, preside. Puck (or Robin Goodfellow) is a major character who is full of mischief and tricks. Other visitors to the enchanted forest include Bottom, the Weaver and his friends Snug, Snout, Quince and Flute, the amateur dramatists who want to rehearse their terrible but hilarious version of the play Pyramus and Thisbe.

Recorded on location in 22 acres of Sussex woodland, this production has an all-star cast.

The year 2012 marks the 350th anniversary of the Book of Common Prayer, which has given us such everyday phrases as 'till death us do part' and 'ashes to ashes'. Rob Cowan's guest this week is the psychoanalyst and novelist Salley Vickers, who is currently writing about The Book of Common Prayer. Her first novel, Miss Garnet's Angel, borrows from the Biblical story of Tobias and the Angel, and many of her subsequent novels - Instances of the Number 3, The Other Side of You, Where Three Roads Meet and Dancing Backwards - explore the impact of spiritual values on contemporary lives. Salley introduces her essential pieces of classical music.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01hjn1q)
The Chapel Royal

Episode 1

For as long as we've had church music itself a Chapel Royal has been serving the musical and spiritual needs of British monarchs. Scarcely a single British composer of note for centuries failed to be associated with it. Byrd, Purcell, Handel, Gibbons, Locke, even Sir Arthur Sullivan of G&S fame all gave their best to adorn state occasions and royal worship, right up to the recent wedding of William and Kate.

This week, Donald Macleod takes five snapshots of the Chapel's itinerant musicians, following their fortunes as they navigate a perilous route from monarch to monarch. Often their careers prosper, with grand masques for Queen Elizabeth I and battlefield triumphs under Henry V. But there are periods of near collapse too, most notably the years of the Civil War which almost finished the Chapel for good. And we hear the written testimonies of many who gave their best years to the choir, most of them thankful for the education it gave them but also some with dark memories of bullying amongst the ranks.

We begin in 1520, and a royal 'G2' long before the G10 was ever invented. Henry VIII is in France for the signing of a royal treaty. No expense is spared as a 'porta-palace' is constructed complete with a fountain gushing with claret. It's an occasion when his chapel musicians must show what they are made of.

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 1

Katie Derham presents a week of programmes featuring recent concerts by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, highlighting British music and Romantic favourites.

Costa Rican-born conductor Giancarlo Guerrero makes his debut with the orchestra in a Swansea concert of youthful works by Brahms, Richard Strauss and Shostakovich. The orchestra's principal horn, Tim Thorpe, performs Richard Strauss's demanding first concerto. Shostakovich wrote his First Symphony while still a teenager; the work unequivocally established him as the first great Soviet composer.

William Mathias's tone poem, Helios, precedes a performance of Dvorak's spirited Eighth Symphony, recorded at Marlborough College's semi-circular Memorial Hall.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01hjp4k)
Stile Antico in Oxford

Live from Merton College, Oxford

Presented by Catherine Bott

In this concert renowned vocal ensemble Stile Antico perform Tudor and Jacobean sacred music written for domestic performance rather than for liturgical use in church. Composed at a time of religious turmoil following Henry VIII's break from Rome, it's music that reflects the troubled times, intended to inspire piety and affirm faith, whether that faith was Protestant or Catholic. Taken from collections brought together for devotion at court or in private homes and written by some of the great names in Renaissance music it's a chronological journey through this largely neglected repertoire.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01hjp4m)
Taliban Poetry, Science and Curiosity, The Road to Rome, Aharon Appelfeld

Rana Mitter reads a new collection of poetry from the Taliban in a newly translated volume that attempts to get inside the lives of a people little understood in the West beyond the fact of them being 'the enemy.' Controversy has attended the publication of this volume with some saying that it conveniently forgets the fact that the Taliban are thugs who are killing British soldiers as has been the case just this week. But others say that there is no alternative to 'know thine enemy' and that includes their primary art form of sung and spoken poetry, often carried on mobile phones as mp3s and listened to every day.

Albert Einstein famously said "I have no special talent, I am only passionately curious". But a few centuries earlier, such a claim would have been frowned upon as curiosity was condemned, still associated with original sin. So when did our inquisitive impulse become sanctioned? Science writer Philip Ball traces the rise of curiosity back to the 17th century and the Scientific Revolution when it changed from a vice to a virtue. But as he tells Rana, our sense of wonder may have been diluted in the process.

There's a review of an exhibition that's a time capsule of 18th Century loot revealing the tastes, art, books and souvenirs of aristocrats returning from their Grand Tour of Europe. The British merchant ship The Westmoreland was filled with the fruits of extended shopping expeditions around Europe when it was hijacked by French warships off the coast of Spain and its treasures sold off and dispersed. Alex Harris talks to Rana about this new show which includes some of the most fashionable art of the day and glimpses into the hidden stories behind 18th Century holiday romances.

And Rana talks to Aharon Appelfeld who this evening won the Independent Foreign Fiction prize for his novel Blooms of Darkness describing the experience of a young Jewish boy hidden in a cupboard in a brothel in the ghetto during the second world war.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01hjp4p)
Shakespeare Around the Globe

Poonam Trivedi

As part of the Shakespeare Unlocked season on the BBC, writers from Sierra Leone, Brazil, India, Iran and China explain why a playwright from sixteenth century Stratford resonates so powerfully in their own countries.
With Eldred Jones, Aimara Resende, Poonam Trivedi, Narguess Farzad and Yong Li Lan.

In this first essay Poonam Trivedi explains how Bollywood helped to make Shakespeare's reputation in India.

These essays explore Shakespeare's place on the global stage; with writers and scholars from around the world explaining his importance within their own culture. There are references to Hamlet and Othello in Iranian literature for example - as well as in African and Chinese works. Othello was first translated into Persian 170 years ago by a Persian prince because the themes of jealousy and honour struck a chord with the Iranian psyche. Authors the world over have recognised a profound affinity between Shakespeare's themes and their own traditional culture, be in it Chinese, Indian or African.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01hjp4r)
John Taylor at the Cheltenham Festival

Jez Nelson presents pianist John Taylor at the Cheltenham Festival, performing a new work specially commissioned by BBC Radio 3 to celebrate his 70th birthday. For this performance, Taylor has put together a new band that includes saxophonist Julian Arguelles, trumpeter Chris Batchelor, tuba player Oren Marshall, and Taylor's sons, Alex and Leo. He has been a leading figure of British jazz since the 1970s, playing with saxophonists John Surman and Alan Skidmore before going on to form trio Azimuth with Norma Winstone and Kenny Wheeler. Collaborations with Jan Garbarek, Enrico Rava and Lee Konitz in the 1980s established an international reputation for his lyricism, subtle harmonic disguise and classically refined technique, which recent trio combinations, including with drummer Martin France and bassist Palle Danielsson, have further cemented.

Donald Macleod rejoins the royal musicians in 1575 at Kenilworth Castle for what promises to be a three-week knees-up, a party so lavish that every partygoer will remember it like the Woodstock of his day.

Live from the Barbican in London

The Rite of Spring

Live from the Barbican Centre, London

Valery Gergiev conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in an all Stravinsky programme.

The premiere of Stravinsky's seminal ballet score The Rite of Spring famously caused a riot at its 1913 premiere in Paris thanks to its innovative and dissonant harmonies. The great impresario Sergei Diaghilev who had commissioned the score is reported to have said that the scandal was 'exactly what I wanted', and the work has remained one of the composers most often performed scores ever since. Fourteen years later Paris also saw the premiere of the opera-oratorio Oedipus Rex, based on Sophocles' tragedy in which Oedipus inadvertently kills his father and marries his mother. When he realises his mistake he is so distraught that he gouges out his own eyes. With a libretto by Jean Cocteau, the work also features a narration - tonight performed by Simon Callow.

TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01hjprq)
Falstaff, Ideology, Even the Rain, Diego Marani

Tonight on Night Waves with Matthew Sweet, a first night review of a new production of Falstaff live from the Royal Opera House in London.

In the last few weeks alone, David Cameron has declared he's 'sceptical' of 'loud ideology', and Ed Miliband and Ed Balls have accused the Government of being too ideologically driven. So why are our politicians suspicious of ideology? And is it a recent development? Journalist Peter Oborne and writer Eliane Glaser join Matthew to debate political ideology.

Scottish human rights lawyer and screenwriter Paul Laverty talks to Matthew about his new political film Even The Rain, which sets modern globalisation and the Bolivian water wars against a backdrop of European imperialism and Columbus's conquest of the New World in 1492.

Diego Marani is a linguist at the European Union who writes a column for a Swiss newspaper in the made up language of Europanto. He talks to Matthew about his new novel The Last of the Vostyachs, which explores the boundaries between language, ethnicity and national identity.

Your First 1812

Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture is well known to music lovers and is performed frequently in concert halls all over the country. It's such an established orchestral perennial that most musicians could probably play it without even looking at the music.

But all professional musicians have to start somewhere and many of them will have played in youth orchestras in their early musical lives.

Amersham Music Centre in Buckinghamshire is one of many local authority Saturday music schools around the country which nurture the talent and enthusiasm of budding young musicians. Children from the ages of 7 upwards are encouraged to sing, play an instrument and develop a love of music. Sarah Taylor has been eavesdropping on the Senior Orchestra as they prepare for their first ever performance of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture. The conductor, Fiona Jacob and the children share their nerves and excitement as they try and master this tricky piece.

Producer: Sarah Taylor.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01hjps3)
Photographers' Gallery, Carlos Fuentes, The War of the Sexes, Brighton Festival

The Photographer's Gallery re-launches itself in London this weekend after relocating to new premises and a multi-million pound overhaul. The exhibition venue will include a digital wall to feature new commissions from artists, as the Gallery attempts to embrace photography's digital revolution of the last decade. Director Brett Rogers explains the ambition behind the project; Eamonn McCabe and Amanda Hopkinson discuss the Gallery's position in the future of photography.

Carlos Fuentes, one of Mexico's greatest writers, died on Tuesday. A leading figure in the 1960s Latin American literature boom, he achieved international renown with The Death of Artemio Cruz, in which he describes a post-revolutionary Mexico that had largely fallen short of the revolution's lofty ideals. Professor Steven Boldy, an expert on his work and close friend, explains why he was so significant in the Spanish-speaking world and beyond.

Why isn't there yet greater harmony and equality between the sexes? Paul Seabright, the author of "The War of the Sexes", and historian Joanna Bourke debate whether the answer lies in our remote evolutionary past.

This year's Brighton Festival is curated by Vanessa Redgrave. She says she wants the work on display to explore the potential for art to make positive changes in the world. But is there a trade-off in art between making a direct political point and maintaining aesthetic integrity? New Generation Thinkers Shahidha Bari and Lucy Powell went to Brighton to see 'The Rest Is Silence', an immersive interpretation of Hamlet , and Redgrave's own contribution to the Festival, a staging of 'A World I Loved', autobiography of a Lebanese woman who lived through the tumultuous 20th Century in the Middle East.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b01hjps5)
Shakespeare Around the Globe

Eldred Jones

As part of the Shakespeare Unlocked season on the BBC, writers from Sierra Leone, Brazil, India, Iran and China explain why a playwright from sixteenth century Stratford resonates so powerfully in their own countries.
With Eldred Jones, Aimara Resende, Poonam Trivedi, Narguess Farzad and Yong Li Lan.

In this third essay Professor Eldred Jones explains that Shakespeare took from Africa as much as Africa has taken from him.

These essays explore Shakespeare's place on the global stage; with writers and scholars from around the world explaining his importance within their own culture. There are references to Hamlet and Othello in Iranian literature for example - as well as in African and Chinese works. Othello was first translated into Persian 170 years ago by a Persian prince because the themes of jealousy and honour struck a chord with the Iranian psyche. Authors the world over have recognised a profound affinity between Shakespeare's themes and their own traditional culture, be in it Chinese, Indian or African.

Verdi - Oberto

Verdi: Oberto

We're in thirteenth-century Italy where Count Riccardo is about to be wed to Cuniza. But as you might expect, there's a problem. The wicked count has form, and satisfaction is demanded of him by Oberto, the father of Leonora, the girl he has seduced and ruined. A duel is fought which leaves Oberto dead, Riccardo guilt-ridden, and Leonora in a convent. With its powerful choruses, striking ensembles, and rhythmic vitality, Verdi's rarely-heard first opera has many of the hallmarks of his later style.

Presented by Katie Derham.

Leonora........Maria Guleghina (soprano)

Britten Sinfonia, Roderick Williams - Viennese Song

Live from Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The Britten Sinfonia and baritone Roderick Williams present a programme inspired by Viennese Song.

Four of Gustav Mahler's Ruckert lieder lay at the heart of this concert - songs of love, longing and loneliness. Around them is music by Schubert; his songs arranged for orchestra by Anton Webern, some dances and the masterwork that is his 5th Symphony. Webern's own Five Movements complete the programme - brief diamonds of condensed atonality that shocked the world in 1909 when they were written, but works whose heritage is obviously the Viennese tradition epitomised by Schubert and Mahler.

Schubert orch.Webern: 6 German Dances, D.820
Webern: 5 Movements, Op.5 arr. for string orchestra
Schubert arr.Webern: Tränenregen (from Die schöne Müllerin)
Schubert arr.Webern: Der Wegweiser (from Winterreise)

THU 22:00 Night Waves (b01hjpsh)
The Sunshine Boys, Athletic Perfection, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, Ballgowns

Tonight on Night Waves with Anne McElvoy.

Danny DeVito and Richard Griffiths star in Neil Simon's 1972 classic The Sunshine Boys at the Savoy Theatre. Two ageing vaudeville comedians, long since retired and with a grudge between them that means they haven't talked for eleven years, are recruited for a CBS special on the history of comedy. Will the need for money overcome the depths of hatred that Lewis and Clark feel for each other? Susannah Clapp reviews.

As the Torch relay begins its Odyssey this weekend, the Olympic spirit is surely aboard as we prepare to settle in for a summer of triumphs and disasters. But how does the quest for athletic perfection fare in an era of technological and biological advancement? The classicist Angie Hobbs, the Wellcome Institute's Emily Sandberg and Anders Sandberg from the Oxford Future of Humanity institute discuss how far we should push athletic performance.

This week also sees the re-release of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's film The life and Death of Colonel Blimp. When it was first released in the 1943, Churchill wanted to ban the movie, which was inspired by a cartoon hero turned wartime figure of fun. So what has its impact been on the way we think about the conduct of war? Michael Goldfarb and Ian Christie assess its legacy.

People are glamorous, an address can be glamorous and so too can a dinner party so what does the word mean? It entered the language in the 18th century when it was a synonym for enchantment so maybe that's a clue. ...one which the fashion expert Caroline Cox will be invited to decode when she reviews the V&A's exhibition about Ballgowns which opens this weekend.

With Eldred Jones, Aimara Resende, Poonam Trivedi, Narguess Farzad and Yong Li Lan.
In the fourth essay of the series Professor Aimara Resende explains Shakespeare's hold on the diverse peoples of South America. And how the Tempest has been used to explain and argue about national identity.

These essays explore Shakespeare's place on the global stage; with writers and scholars from around the world explaining his importance within their own culture. There are references to Hamlet and Othello in Iranian literature, for example, as well as in African and Chinese works.

Katie Derham concludes her week of programmes featuring recent concerts by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, highlighting British music and Romantic favourites.

In a recent concert from Bangor, the orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor Jac van Steen perform music by Tchaikovsky, Bruch and Dvorak. The young Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang is the soloist in Bruch's popular First Violin Concerto. The Seventh Symphony by Dvorak is one of the composer's darkest works, sparked off by the Third Symphony of his friend and mentor Brahms.

Richard Hickox conducts Frank Bridge's 1911 suite for orchestra, The Sea, the composer's best-known work. Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphosis, written in exile in the 1940s, is preceded by the most famous work by the composer who inspired it.

Jordi Savall at the Lufthansa Festival

Live from St John's Smith Square, London

Presented by Catherine Bott

The Luftansa Festival of Baroque Music is focussing in this olympic year on the spirit of goodwill, competition and harmony of nations. For this opening concert, the revered Catalan viol-player Jordi Savall brings his hand-picked line up of leading players from many nations to London for a concert featuring Baroque music from across Europe.

In the French corner is Lully with his incidental music to Moliere's play, presented to the court of Louis XIV. The Italian baroque is represented by the concerto grosso writing of Corelli and Geminiani. England has the music of Charles Avison, and Biber with his vivid battle music represents Bohemia and Austria. Handel and Boccherini meanwhile travelled widely, assimilating different European styles.

Lully: Le Bourgeois gentilhomme (suite)

Biber: Battalia
Geminiani: Concerto grosso No.12 in D minor, 'Follia' (after Corelli)

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01hjpsw)
Shakespeare Around the Globe

Yong Li Lan

As part of the Shakespeare Unlocked season on the BBC, writers from Sierra Leone, Brazil, India, Iran and China explain why a playwright from sixteenth century Stratford resonates so powerfully in their own countries.
With Eldred Jones, Aimara Resende, Poonam Trivedi, Narguess Farzad and Yong Li Lan.

In the final essay in the series Yong Li Lan gives a unique insight into how popular Shakespeare remains in China and South East Asia. She talks about the way his work is interpreted and staged in the region.

These essays explore Shakespeare's place on the global stage; with writers and scholars from around the world explaining his importance within their own culture. There are references to Hamlet and Othello in Iranian literature, for example, as well as in African and Chinese works. Othello was first translated into Persian 170 years ago by a Persian prince because the themes of jealousy and honour struck a chord with the Iranian psyche. Authors the world over have recognised a profound affinity between Shakespeare's themes and their own traditional culture, be in it Chinese, Indian or African.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01hjqlq)
Mary Ann Kennedy - Jim Moray Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, plus a studio session with English folk musician Jim Moray.

Jim Moray studied classical composition at Birmingham Conservatoire, and at the same time was recording tracks for an album which took an individual approach to English folk. He writes that he sees "pop, rock and folk all as parts of the same musical world - because they are." His new album 'Skulk' was released in April.
