SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01jyyjs)
Philadelphia's Tempesta di Mare Ensemble

Lucie Skeaping introduces a focus on the Philadelphia-based baroque ensemble Tempesta di Mare, which celebrates its first decade of music making during this 2012 season. The programme features performances from three of their recent concerts, including music by Vivaldi, Pisendel, Telemann, Dall'Abaco and Fasch.

Tempesta di Mare performs baroque music on baroque instruments with what the Philadelphia City Paper describes as "zest and virtuosity that transcends style and instrumentation." Led by artistic directors Gwyn Roberts and Richard Stone with concertmaster Emlyn Ngai, Tempesta's repertoire ranges from staged opera with full orchestra to chamber music. The group performs all orchestral repertoire without a conductor, as was the practice when this music was new. Tempesta di Mare is named for baroque master Antonio Vivaldi's concerto meaning "storm at sea," a title reflecting music's power to evoke drama.

Hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer for its "off-the-grid chic factor," Tempesta's Greater Philadelphia Concert Series has enjoyed a rapid rise to prominence since its launch in 2002, with press endorsements from Philadelphia to Paris.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b01jyz16)
The Odyssey of Eels

A moonlit night on the River Parrett; James Crowden waits with secretive netsmen for the elver run. Each spring these tiny creatures, glass eels, wriggle in their millions out of the Atlantic. No one can afford to eat elvers now; they are bought live for restocking Europe's rivers. James eavesdrops on deals struck behind vans as elvers are sold for hundreds of pounds a kilo.

Those that elude the fishermen, scale the weirs, and escape the herons, grow to maturity in the rivers of England. A decade later, on an autumn night after rain, as silver eels, they begin their return journey to the seaweedy Sargasso sea. What happens next no one knows but no one has ever caught an eel that has spawned, so theymust breed, and die.

James Crowden, Somerset poet, traces their odyssey. Among his informants are Michael Brown of Thorney, who spent 25 years elver dealing and smoking eels. James sees the workings of a smokehouse, its design based on the brick privies European Jews found when they arrived in London's east End.

Brendan Sellick, lives near Hinkley Point Nuclear Power Station.He has been fishing for eels all his life, pushing his 'mud horse', a kind of sledge, out half a mile to the nets at low ride. He remembers glatting: hunting for eels at low tide with dogs.

Andy Don of the Environment Agency displays an ingenious eel pass, allowing the fish to pass obstacles to their migration such as flood barriers - vital as the eel population has plummeted.

At Mick's Eels, near Billingsgate, the whole mystery of jellied eels is revealed - gutting, chopping, boiling - and eating.

'The Odyssey of Eels' is full of water, mud, slime and fire. And full of voices, from west and east, and the past. Eel poems by James Crowden writhe through it. (Repeat)

Producer: Julian May

First broadcast in June 2012.

Vivier conceived the piece as one single melody, with the entire orchestra "transformed into a timbre", to create "great beams of colour". Writer Paul Griffiths puts the piece in context, noting the influence of Stockhausen but stressing the unique soundworld of Vivier.

The producer is Neil Myners and it is a Unique production for BBC Radio 3.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01jyzf0)
DR Thorpe

Michael Berkeley's guest is the the historian and political biographer D R Thorpe, whose biographies include three British Prime Ministers of the mid-20th century - Sir Anthony Eden, Sir Alec Douglas-Hume, and Harold Macmillan. 'Supermac: The Life of Harold Macmillan', published in 2010, has been described as 'the best biography of a post-war British Prime Minister yet written', and was shortlisted for the Orwell Political Prize.

Richard Thorpe taught history at Charterhouse for over 30 years, and is a Fellow of St Antony's College and Brasenose College, Oxford. His musical choices begin with 'Go forth upon thy journey, Christian soul' from Elgar's 'Dream of Gerontius', which reminds him of the great Huddersfield choral tradition in the area where he grew up. English music is one of his great passions, represented here by the final movement of Vaughan Williams' 'A Sea Symphony', and the opening of George Butterworth's rhapsody 'A Shropshire Lad', a piece of great poignancy, given that Butterworth was killed on the Western Front just after his 31st birthday. The three composers who mean most to Richard Thorpe are Richard Strauss, Wagner and Britten, and he has chosen excerpts from Strauss's Elektra and Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, as well as 'Depart' from Britten's early song-cycle 'Les Illuminations', based on poems by Rimbaud. His final choice is the close of Sibelius' Seventh Symphony, the end of another great 20th-century symphonic cycle.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01jyzf2)
Rousseau

"Man is born free, but everywhere he is in chains" - words made famous by the philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau. But Rousseau was more than just a writer of philosophy.

Catherine Bott explores his intriguing musical life in the week of the 300th anniversary of his birth.

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b01jyzf9)
London

Words and Music: London

Words and Music celebrates the great capital city with music and texts read by two distinguished London-born actors, Dame Eileen Atkins and Sir David Jason.

In many ways a city of contradictions, Words and Music celebrates the Thames, the church bells, the parks and the architecture, along with the less salubrious side of the city - the overcrowding, the noise and the stench which Londoners have complained about for centuries. We view London through the eyes of its chroniclers such as Daniel Defoe and John Evelyn, along with eminent visitors to the city such as Handel and Haydn. There are also references to key events in London's history - the Fire, the Plague, the Blitz, and the terror of Jack the Ripper. Above all, there is a sense of the love of the city from the writings of authors and poets who lived there, including Charles Dickens, George Orwell, T.S. Eliot and John Keats.

London has inspired many composers, and the readings are accompanied by music by Vaughan Williams, Walton, Britten, Haydn and Elgar.

Producer: Ellie Mant.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01jyzff)
Crowd Psychology

Collective behaviour and how it can be managed is a burgeoning field of science, driven by the demands of music festivals, sporting events and managing protests.

The origins of this topical specialism lie in the turn of the last century, when academics argued that crowds were a hostile force to be reckoned with - mad mobs where indviduals lose their rational behaviour and get caught up in the crowd. However there's a growing body of evidence to suggest the opposite. Geneticist Steve Jones investigates.

Producer: Erika Wright

First broadcast in June 2012.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01jyzfh)
Singles and Doublets

A new comedy by Martyn Wade about Elizabethan Real Tennis culminates in an epic match, poetry and death by strawberries and cream. Recorded on location. Celia Imrie stars as Elizabeth I and David Troughton won Best Supporting Actor in the BBC Audio Drama Awards 2013 .

Inspired by past events at Wimbledon, this comedy by Martyn Wade takes as its theme a famous duel between Elizabethan rivals the Earl of Oxford and Philip Sidney on a Real tennis court. Having failed to satisfy an argument with a more traditional duel, the pair resort to a five-set game in front of Queen Elizabeth herself - the outcome of which will decide not only personal pride but also the marital fate of the Queen, as she decrees that proposed nuptials with a French duke will only take place if Oxford wins...

2012

Part 5

As part of the World Routes Academy, Lucy Duran travels to the Valledupar accordion festival and competition held in the north east of Colombia. Whilst there, she follows the progress of Academy protege Jose Hernando Arias Noguera who takes part in the amateur category of the event, and travels to the remote and dangerous Sierra Nevada mountain range to hear the music of the Kankuamos people. Plus she meets the President of Colombia who explains what business a head of state has opening a folk festival. Producer James Parkin. 1/2

Launched in 2010, the BBC Radio 3 World Routes Academy aims to support and inspire young UK-based world music artists by bringing them together with an internationally renowned artist in the same field belonging to the same tradition. This year the scheme explores the Colombian accordion folk tradition called vallenato through the eyes of self-taught, UK based accordionist José Hernando Arias Noguera.

Growing up in a Colombian household, José fell in love with vallenato, the popular folk style from the Caribbean coast of Colombia which he learned through watching internet clips and video cassettes his father brought back from Colombia. José plays in a number of Latin music bands in London and dreams of becoming an ambassador for Vallenato music in Europe. These 2 editions of the World Routes Academy see a dream come true for Jose Hernando who gets to take part in the famed "Legend of Vallenato" accordion festival which takes place once a year in the city of Valledupar. The programmes document Jose Hernando's progress as he competes in the amateur category of the competition. Making history, he becomes the first British-born Colombian to take part in the festival and becomes the first competitor to sing in English and Spanish.

Between the ages of 5 and 35, Mozart clocked up some 3,720 days on tour; that's more than 10 of his not-quite-36 years. This week, Donald Macleod clambers into the Mozart family carriage to plot a selective course through the composer's Awaydays, from his earliest outings as an infant phenomenon to his final trip three decades later.

Today's programme charts the extraordinary course of the three-and-a-half-year journey around Western Europe that has come to be known as the Mozart Family Grand Tour, on which the 7-year-old Mozart embarked with his father Leopold, mother Anna Maria and sister Nannerl in June 1763.

Penny Gore presents a week of programmes focusing on recent performances by the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Today the emphasis is on the BBC Philharmonic, with pianist Martin Roscoe joining the orchestra in performances of Liszt's Totentanz and Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto. Then, Bruch's Concerto for clarinet, viola and orchestra, a late work in the composer's canon which makes good use of the tonal similarities between the two solo instruments. To finish, the BBC Philharmonic perform Elgar's 1st Symphony, which had its premiere in 1908 in Manchester, just up the road from the orchestra's home.

There's a chance to hear the BBC SSO play Elgar's 2nd Symphony in tomorrow's programme. The BBC Philharmonic return on Wednesday with a concert live from their home at MediaCity, Salford.

Martha Argerich - Schumann, Mozart, Brahms

Live from the RSI Auditorium, Lugano, Switzerland

Presented by Ian Skelly

Legendary pianist Martha Argerich and friends perform at her Argerich's own festival in Lugano, Switzerland. Including chamber works by Schumann, Mozart and Brahms.

Every year for the last 11 years, Martha Argerich gathers together a group of friends, young and old, to perform chamber music in the city on the banks of Lake Lugano. She is joined in this concert by two cellists, four pianists and two violinists who perform a series of chamber music works. This year the thread connecting many of the works in the festival is compositions that are based on re-workings of other composer's themes and tonight's concert begins with one such work: Moscheles Homage to Handel. But it's the other pieces which are really the meat of this concert, Schumann's Pieces in the Popular Style, Mozart's Sonata for two pianos and Brahms' 1st Violin Sonata.

Moscheles: Hommage à Händel op. 92

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01jz1cb)
Jenny Saville

Matthew Sweet looks at the work of the artist Jenny Saville on display at The Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, . One of the young British artists from the Sensation exhibition in 1997 which brought Damien Hirst to fame she has perhaps more quietly pursued her studies of human flesh through the medium of paint in the fifteen years since then. This is her first retrospective.

Diarmaid MacCulloch and Nick Spencer discuss whether the disestablishment of the Church of England would be good or bad for the church and for society as a whole. Does disestablishment matter? Would it make the Church more or less conservative and enhance or deaden the influence of the broader Anglican Communion?

Our New Generation Thinker tonight is Matthew Smith from the University of Strathclyde and he looks at the cultural history of the diagnosis and medical treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD.

And Dr Ellen Adams explains why a broadcast on the Third Programme sixty years ago by a young architect Michael Ventris talking about the language known as Linear B changed the way we think about the ancient world and catapulted literature into the Bronze Age.

TUE 20:00 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01jz3z1)
Berlioz - Requiem

Live from St Paul's Cathedral, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Sir Colin Davis, a revered Berlioz expert and one of Britain's finest conductors, leads over 200 musicians of the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus through Berlioz's immense Requiem, as part of the City of London Festival. This monumental work was commissioned by a French Minister of the Interior, and it contrasts poignant, reflective music with blazing brass ensembles, sounding from four extremities within St Paul's Cathedral.

The space of the dome will also be used to good effect, with twelve timpani thundering in dramatic fashion beneath it, creating an effect perhaps similar to the first performance, as the cavernous acoustics of St Paul's are not unlike those of Les Invalides in Paris, where the piece was first heard in 1837.

Berlioz's Mass for the Dead has been a popular highlight of the City of London Festival in years past, and it is a fitting work to include in their 50th birthday celebrations.

TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01jz3t4)
Edvard Munch

It's been forty years since The Royal Opera last staged a full production of Berlioz's Les Troyens - complete with over 100 singers, a fourth-act ballet, and a fire-breathing horse. Night Waves has a first night review of this major event in the opera world.

Rana Mitter is also joined by Dambisa Moyo, the feted African economist who has followed her controverisal book ''Dead Aid' with an examination of China's race for resources. In 'Winner Take All' she argues that while China is making Western powers nervous by rapidly buying up all sorts of commodities from oil to copper to water... it treats its African business partners much better than any of the old colonial powers ever did. Steve Tsang, Director of the China Policy Institue, and Isobel Hilton, editor of Chinadialogue.net, join the conversation.

Night Waves presents the next of this year's New Generation Thinkers - tonight Emma Griffin of the University of East Anglia asks us to reexamines the impact of the 'dark Satanic mill's of the Industrial Revolution on the working class.

We are all familiar with the idea that machines are powered by electricity, but perhaps not so aware that this is also true for ourselves. In a new book "The Spark of Life", award-winning physiologist Frances Ashcroft shows how electrical signals in our cells are essential to everything we think and do.

And... 'So you think you know Edvard Munch? Think again' says Tate Modern of its latest exhibition Edvard Munch: The Modern Eye. Rana Mitter tests his knowledge.

Kamila Shamsie stays up all night to watch a veteran runner in the Bejing Olympics of 2008 and how the runner used 'guile' to get her through. In fact, she went on to win the race and this was mainly due to guile, which has connotations with witchcraft..

Five writers choose a word that suggests sporting endeavour,

When Mozart visited Paris as a child, the Parisians fêted him as a wunderkind. Today's programme finds him back in Paris - but now he's 22, and is met with a snooty Parisian indifference.

Lully's Religious Works

They say that Louis XIV was 'occupied constantly with the idea of grandeur'. Given this starting-point, Lully as court composer could have been forgiven if his sacred music had overindulged in the spectacular. Stephen Johnson uncovers the subtleties of Lully's surviving religious works with Richard Egarr, director of tonight's concert, and finds a composer remarkably attuned to the opportunities and pitfalls of combining theatre and church in music.

He was an enlightenment figure who influenced the Romantics and Wordsworth. He wrote the first autobiography, The Confessions, he was a composer and a musician and was a revolutionary thinker on education and the prison system.

To mark the 300th anniversary of his birth and discuss why Rousseau still matters today Philip Dodd is joined by the novelist Lawrence Norfolk, philosopher Susan James, Professor of Intellectual History Richard Whatmore and specialist in 18th Century Literature Lucy Powell.

Grace

"It's all very well in gymnastics to make routines more and more dangerously complicated but this counts for little unless it can be done gracefully.. "

Five writers choose a word to suggest sporting endeavour, and
Geoff Dyer celebrates 'grace'.

Experiencing once again the stultifying atmosphere of provincial Salzburg can only have convinced Mozart that he had done the right thing by getting out of there. Back in Vienna a little over three months later, he and his wife Constanza discovered that their first son, Raimund Leopold, whom they had left behind with a foster carer, had been dead for more than a month.

In tonight's performance English soprano Kate Royal and Finnish mezzo Monica Groop take part in the epic finale of which Mahler wrote "The increasing tension, working up to the final climax, is so tremendous that I don't know myself, now that it is over, how I ever came to write it"

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)

Episode 5

In today's programme, Donald Macleod explores Mozart's late-flowering success in Prague, which went Figaro-crazy in December 1786 - Figaro being The Marriage of Figaro, one of Mozart's operatic masterpieces. When the composer turned up in Prague to attend a performance of his latest smash, he got serious red-carpet treatment. Not only that, he was invited to create another opera, especially for the city; this turned out to be Don Giovanni, arguably his most perfect operatic creation. La clemenza di Tito, Mozart's final opera for Prague and a late flowering of opera seria, has never enjoyed the acclaim of his comic masterpieces, but it has a quiet and compelling nobility.

FRI 20:10 Twenty Minutes (b01jz48f)
Lizzie's Tiger

'The tiger walked up and down, up and down; it walked up and down like Satan walking about the world and it burned. It burned so brightly, she was scorched.'

It is 1864, and the Borden family are living in a poor way in River Fall, Massachusetts, when, one day, the circus comes to town. Defying her grave undertaker father, the squat, square infant, Lizzie Borden, who will one day take an axe to her parents, slips out illicitly to the circus. Dazzled by the bawdy sights and sounds around her, the four-year-old girl finds herself in the animal enclosure. A magnificent tiger is pacing up and down his tiny cage, when, for one extraordinary moment, their eyes meet, and Lizzie's destiny is sealed...

Angela Carter died 20 years ago, and is remembered as one of the great literary figures of the 20th century. 'Lizzie's Tiger', one of the last pieces she wrote, was originally commissioned for BBC Radio 3, and published posthumously in a collection, American Ghosts and Old World Wonders. It is one of her many short stories in which she reimagines the lives of certain historical figures; in this case the young life of the notorious Lizzie Borden, who would one day be tried for murdering parents.

Reader: Debora Weston
Abridged and produced by: Justine Willett.

A Sporting Lexicon

Fourth

They miss out on glory by a fraction of a second, or the wrong intake of breath, or the slightly delayed start..."

Gillian Slovo stands up for those who miss out on the places on the podium. We live in an age of expectation and worse, entitlement, and this makes us lose sight of the joy of taking part. But the joy of taking part encapsulates the Olympic spirit - doesn't it?

Five writers choose a word that suggest sporting endeavour,
and Gillian Slovo thinks about coming 'fourth'.

Producer Duncan Minshull.
