The Exile Returned

On September 21st 1962 when Igor Stravinsky got off the plane at Moscow airport he stepped onto Russian soil for the first time in over 45 years. During this time he had become the world's most famous composer and was first a Swiss and then an American citizen. Now at the age of 80 he returned at the height of the Cold War to a country cut off from the composer by revolution. What would he make of the old country and what would the old country make of him?

Bridget Kendall, the BBC's diplomatic correspondent and former Moscow correspondent tells the story of the composer's visit to Moscow and his home city of St Petersburg and the effect it had on Stravinsky, his party and the artists, composers and musicians living in the USSR. Featuring archive recordings of the concerts Stravinsky conducted during the trip, interviews with Russian writers and musicians who were in the audience, the composer's biographer Stephen Walsh and Soviet music specialists Gerard McBurney and Marina Frolova-Walker; Bridget Kendall uncovers the cultural significance of the event 50 years on.

The programme also features an exclusive interview with the composer's assistant, Robert Craft, who accompanied him on the visit and recalls how Stravinsky and his wife Vera immediately became enthusiastic Russians once again as soon as they came back to the 'motherland'.

Sir John Falstaff is fat and greedy, lecherous and ridiculous. And short of cash. He tries to kill two birds with one stone when he pursues two wealthy women, setting in motion a train of events which inevitably lead to his comeuppance. Verdi's late, great Shakespeare-based opera is a comic tour de force, overflowing with energy and a seemingly infinite succession of musical ideas. Robert Carsen's new production for Covent Garden, updates the action to 1950s Windsor and features an ensemble cast lead by one of the great Falstaffs of our day, Ambrogio Maestri. Presented by Ivan Hewett in conversation with Alexandra Wilson.

SAT 21:40 Between the Ears (b01k9s9g)
Between the Ears: Saying Goodbye Again and Again

"Quietly I leave, as quietly as I came here."

Each year thousands of Chinese tourists visit Cambridge, not to see the usual sites, but to pay homage to a poem they all had to learn by heart in school - Xu Zhimo's 'Saying Goodbye to Cambridge Again'. Few non-Chinese speakers will have heard of it.

"Saying Goodbye again and again" takes a sonic journey along the River Cam capturing the voices of teachers, students, tourists, punt chauffeurs, a tour guide, a translator and experts on early 20th century Chinese poetry. Also visiting Cambridge are two poets from two very different backgrounds - Sean Street and Xin Zeng - who muse on the life of Xu Zhimo and explore the hidden depths of a poem which used ideas from the English romantics to help break the strict rules of classical Chinese poetry.

He played Prince Vultan in 'Flash Gordon', starred as Old Deuteronomy in Andrew Lloyd Webber's stage musical 'Cats', has tackled a number of Shakespearean roles on stage and screen, including four of the five Shakespeare films directed by Kenneth Branagh, has appeared in many pantomimes, notably as Captain Hook in 'Peter Pan', guested hosted an episode of 'Have I Got News for You', and has starred as Henry VIII in a series of online videos for the BBC Comedy website.

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b01k9t7h)
Eminently Victorian

Eminently Victorian is a kind of stumble or headlong trip into the kaleidoscopic world of the 19th century. It's a world which embraces Elgar, Mendelssohn and William Sterndale Bennett as easily as George Eliot, Oscar Wilde and Robert Browning. At once familiar and strange it still seems seems utterly contemporary. Anna Maxwell Martin and Rory Kinnear conjure up Gwendolen Harleth and Gunga Din amongst others and the music whirls from the vernacular of Gilbert and Sullivan to Samuel Coleridge Taylor's The Song of Hiawatha.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01k9t7k)
The Other Dickens

Radio 3 'New Generation Thinker' Laurence Scott tells the story of Victorian 'bad-boy' writer of penny-dreadful novels George WM Reynolds, whose books sold in their hundreds of thousands, and who was a contemporary of Charles Dickens and prolific exponent of 'urban Gothic'.

"An indescribable sensation of fear crept over him; and the perspiration broke out upon his forehead in large drops... He was alone - in an uninhabited house, in the midst of a horrible neighbourhood; and all the fearful tales of midnight murders which he had ever heard or read, rushed to his memory..."

Reynolds's gruesome depictions of the London poor of the 1830s and '40s led to contention over whether his work highlighted their plight or exploited the public's appetite for romanticised portrayals of squalor. Karl Marx thought that Reynolds was a 'scoundrel', yet on his death in 1879 Reynolds was described in The Bookseller as 'the most popular writer of our time'.

Like Dickens, Reynolds was inspired by both London and Paris, and the circulation of ideas between the two capitals. Reynolds was a naturalised French citizen, lived there in the 1830s, married, had a child there, was bankrupted and, in July 1830 witnessed three glorious days of revolution.

Reynolds's stories were sexually scandalous, he was known as a 'red republican', and one modern scholar remarked that 'No other novelist, not even Dickens, gives as good a picture of some aspects of London life in the 'forties and 'fifties.'

Producer: Simon Elmes

First broadcast in July 2012.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b011y7xl)
Money

Samuel West makes his radio directorial debut with a new adaptation by Kate Clanchy of Edward Bulwer-Lytton's vibrant and good-hearted satirical comedy. The play was recorded on location at Knebworth House, Hertfordshire, the stately home of Edward Bulwer-Lytton, which he inherited in 1843 shortly after writing 'Money'.
Stars Roger Allam, Celia Imrie and Ian McDiarmid.
The music, specially recorded for the play, is performed by the Endellion String Quartet.

Kate Clanchy's adaptation re-fashions the action around one grand house, modernises the heroine, Clara, and sets the action just before the 1832 Reform Act to accentuate the political plot.

'Money' was first performed at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, in 1840. It was an instant success and the play's social commentary, genteel comedy and high romance still resonate and charm today.

Part 6

As part of the 2012 World Routes Academy, Lucy Duran follows the progress of young protégé and accordionist Jose Hernando Arias Noguera as he competes in a folk music contest in North East Colombia. In last week's programme he reached the quarter-finals, but will he go further? There's also the specially-recorded music of the Arhuaco people, one of Colombia's indigenous groups who live high in the remote and dangerous Sierra Nevada mountain range. Producer James Parkin. 2/2

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.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01k9tdy)
Niccolo Paganini (1782-1840)

The Paganini Inheritance

He was ever the rock star of his day with his long hair, on-stage histrionics and an eye for young girls. But Paganini was undoubtedly a genius too, a violinist with no equals, and with a streak of compassion all too often overlooked.

Donald Macleod unmasks the real Paganini with the help of biographer Andrew McGee, who has dedicated himself to separating myth from reality in the musician's life story. There's certainly no shortage of intrigue, not least the persistent rumours that the violinist was some how in league with the devil. Gossip that he had been imprisoned for eight years fuelled the flames and dogged his career, as did the mystique surrounding his 'secret', supposedly a simple key to his technique known only to Paganini and one other.

But the image of Paganini as nothing more than a heartless egotist turns out to be wide of the mark. We find him writing longingly to his only son while on tour, performing charity concerts around Europe, and gifting a large amount of money to Berlioz when the Frenchman falls on hard times. And there's also the deep impression he makes on the greatest musicians of his day, the likes of Liszt, Schumann and Chopin. We hear their own musical tributes to Paganini, and also those of their successors such as Witold Lutoslawski whose twentieth-century homage to one of the famous violin Caprices is every bit the match of Rachmaninoff's more famous offering.

The week begins with an image of Paganini the entrepeneur. We find him pocketing staggering amounts of money for his concert performances, and even creating a Paganini 'brand' which usurps a Viennese fashion for everything giraffe related.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01k9s9d)

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b01k9th9)
Mahler's Vienna

Episode 1

Katie Derham presents a week focusing on music in Gustav Klimt and Gustav Mahler's Vienna, including works Mahler himself championed and music by his friends and contemporaries.
On a dark winter's morning in December 1907 a crowd of two hundred admirers gathered together at Vienna's railway station to say a fond farewell to the recently deposed director of the Court Opera. As Gustav Mahler set off for his fateful journey to New York, the notoriously taciturn Gustav Klimt quoted Goethe's Faust: 'Vorbei,' he uttered: 'It's over.' Mahler and Klimt, born two years, probably did not know one another well until about 1902 but in their respective fields, they seemed to epitomise fin de siecle Vienna. Klimt depicted Mahler as an armoured knight in his famous Beethoven Frieze and though they may not have been close friends, they were, nontheless, united by an almost crusading artistic zeal - not to mention their love for Alma, the charming, tentacular Muse of the Secession. Famously, Alma went on to love or marry Mahler, Kokoshka, Walter Gropius and many others, but she always maintained that: "It was to Gustav Klimt that I owed many tears, but also my awakening.' Was Alma's teenage kiss with Klimt the seminal moment of the Viennese Secession?

Live from Drapers' Hall at the City of London Festival

Presented by Martin Handley

The Brodsky Quartet present an informal concert at Drapers' Hall as part of the City of London Festival, celebrating 40 years since their formation in 1972. The Quartet will invite audience participation in spinning their "Wheel of 4tunes" to determine which piece they play from a selection of 40 works, ranging from Schubert's Quartettsatz to a new work by Henning Kraggerud. The Quartet will then discuss the music and invite questions from the audience, in order to give a sense of their history together and the significance of the chosen works to them. A chance to find out more about this remarkable Quartet and to hear them perform pieces from their eclectic repertoire.

Brodsky Quartet.


MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01k9thh)
Landmarks: Blackmail

Matthew Sweet hosts a Landmark edition examining Alfred Hitchcock's drama Blackmail - the 1929 film which many believe was the first to bear the imprint of his mature style. Its subtle examination of a brutal domestic murder, the sleazy milieu of police and criminals and a climactic scene in one of London's landmarks all foreshadow films like Psycho and North by Northwest. There's also evidence of a complex ambivalence towards his characters and an outcome which subverts conventional morality. To discuss this masterpiece, which exists in two versions - one silent and one a pioneering talkie Matthew Sweet is joined by the cultural theorist and lifelong Hitchcock fan, Camille Paglia, the composer Neil Brand, BFI curator Nathalie Morris and the film historian Michael Eaton.

Producer Zahid Warley.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01k9thp)
John Butcher and Apophonics in Session

Jez Nelson presents British saxophonist John Butcher and his Apophonics trio in session, featuring bassist John Edwards and Gino Robair on percussion. Butcher is one of the UK's most highly regarded saxophone improvisors and composers of the last thirty years, drawing on his background as a physicist to explore extreme acoustics and effects. The Apophonics grouping combines two of his favoured duos, recorded as a trio for the first time. California-based 'anti-percussionist' Gino Robair incorporates mechanical motors and bespoke cymbals into a regular drum set, while John Edwards is a singular force of the British improvising scene. All three explore the outer edges of the traditional vocabulary of their instruments, to craft deft and dynamic free improvisations.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Joby Waldman.

TUE 19:30 An Evening with John Amis (b01kbgys)
John Amis joins Louise Fryer as Radio 3 celebrates his life in music featuring some of the very best clips from his remarkable archive of interviews - more than 500 - with some of the most famous and influential musicians of our age - including Benjamin Britten, Aaron Copland, Myra Hess, Earl Wild, Sergiu Celibidache, Percy Grainger, Leopold Stokowski and many many more...

Broadcaster and musical polymath John Amis celebrates his 90th birthday this year. After turning pages for Myra Hess as a youth and his early years as a concert manager for Sir Thomas Beecham, to organising the Summer School of Music with William Glock at Dartington, and his many, many links and associations with some of the most important names in music in the post war years, Amis enjoys an astonishingly comprehensive artistic legacy - something he has succesfully shared over forty years as a much loved broadcaster. He is fondly remembered as a presenter of several music magazine programmes on BBC radio, and as a panellist on the television and radio quiz show, "My Music". We'll hear clips from the extensive BBC archive of his many interviews, including Britten reading a letter he wrote to Tippett, Earl Wild on improvisation, Frankie Howerd on his musical roles, Percy Grainger on folk music, and much much more.


TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01k9v1y)
Samira Ahmed talks about the art of delay with the actor Samuel West and the former banker Frank Partnoy who, drawing on examples from disciplines as varied as computing, banking, baseball and chess, argues that there is much to be said for procrastination and the most important question to be asked is: "How long should I wait before making this decision?".

Anthony Burgess' dystopian novel of teen dysfunction and violence, A Clockwork Orange, was published fifty years ago this year. The writers Will Self and Sophia McDougall reflect on the dizzyingly inventive language of the protagonist, Alex, and discuss the enduring relevance of its themes and ideas: should free will be protected at any cost?

Professor Tim Spector has been studying identical twins and what they can tell us about genetics for more than twenty years. His research is changing the way scientists think not only about the impact of our genes on our lives but also how our day to day actions and decisions can change our genes and those of our descendants. For example, how can the eating habits of our grandparents affect our own grandchildren's chances of maintaining a healthy weight?

Samira discusses a forgotten British film classic, Woman in a Dressing gown, with the film critic Melanie Williams and Sylvia Syms, one of its stars.

Producer Natalie Steed.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b010xyb0)
The Feast of Language

Michael Heffernan

Michigan based Thomas Lynch is an accomplished poet, essayist and funeral director whose dry wit and captivating storytelling have won him a devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic. In this series of essays, The Feast of Language, Lynch looks at five of his most beloved poets and examines how their poems have nourished and sustained him throughout his life; how their work, almost literally, can be read as a 'feast'.

Be it the subtle nuances of meaning in an elegant stanza, or the simple, visceral pleasure in the sound of a particular word, Lynch makes it clear that poetry continues to have a profound and revitalizing role in our lives.

Under the umbrella term of "Feast", Lynch explores sex and death, those "bookends of life", alongside religion, love, anecdote, food, personal history and memory, evoking the power and richness of poetic language and its ability to contain such diverse themes.

For Lynch, "Poetry is as good an axe as a pillow": it can comfort as much as it can cause harm. As such, it is the most important art form he knows. In the first programme he turns to the work of Seamus Heaney, for programme two, the American poet, Michael Heffernan, in programme three, Carol Ann Duffy, in programme four Michael Donaghy and finally the modernist, William Carlos Williams.

Donald Macleod searches beyond the rumours for the truth, and also explores more music by the many greats who were inspired to rework the violinist's music in their own compositions.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01kbhs7)
Live from St Bride's, Fleet Street

Bingham, Handel

Live from St Bride's, Fleet Street, London

Prsented by Louise Fryer

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment play Pergolesi, Handel and Bingham at St Bride's, Fleet Street as part of the City of London Festival.

This concert pairs Handel and Pergolesi, two great contemporaries of the early 1700s, with Judith Bingham, a major figure of our time. In Jacob's Ladder, an organ concerto, Bingham uses a small string ensemble to accompany the organ in the way Handel did Handel 300 years earlier.

As part of Bingham's 60th birthday celebrations, she has been commissioned to write a partner piece for Jacob's Ladder, using the same number of strings, though without the organ. Bingham's initial idea for the new piece, The Hythe, was to find a theme that linked the different places of the proposed first performances: Hythe and London. She says, 'My first thought was the sea and harbours, and I discovered that the word Hythe was an old word for haven. The idea of the sailor coming home from sea is a powerful one in British culture and history, and it seems to me that it has a spiritual counterpart in the idea of the soul returning to God.'
The concert concludes by adding two voices - soprano and countertenor - to the organ and strings, in Pergolesi's Stabat Mater. This work, first performed in 1736, is thought to be Pergolesi's last; he died in the same year, aged only 26.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01k9v20)
As Germany becomes an ever more powerful economic presence in Europe there are barely disguised fears of the Germans devouring her neighbours. There are ghosts from the past both recent and further away in the recesses of the Austro Hungarian Empire that are stoking these fears, but there is also the Germany of Goethe and Beethoven in that past.
To discuss what Germany is doing and why Philip Dodd is joined by Hans Kundnani of the European Council on Foreign Relations, Imke Henkel the London correspondent for the German magazine Focus and the historian Sir Richard Evans of Wolfson College, Cambridge.

He also talks the award winning playwright Simon Stephens about his new adaptation of Ibsen's A Doll's House for the Young Vic.

The possible discovery of the Higgs Boson particle has today been heralded as of tremendous significance to our understanding of the universe. Does this mean physics is now better placed to answer the questions that matter? And to what extent has science made philosophy irrelevant? The scientist Peter Atkins and philosopher Raymond Tallis debate.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b010xyjd)
The Feast of Language

Carol Ann Duffy

Michigan based Thomas Lynch is an accomplished poet, essayist and funeral director whose dry wit and captivating storytelling have won him a devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic. In this series of essays, The Feast of Language, Lynch looks at five of his most beloved poets and examines how their poems have nourished and sustained him throughout his life; how their work, almost literally, can be read as a 'feast'.

Be it the subtle nuances of meaning in an elegant stanza, or the simple, visceral pleasure in the sound of a particular word, Lynch makes it clear that poetry continues to have a profound and revitalizing role in our lives.

Under the umbrella term of "Feast", Lynch explores sex and death, those "bookends of life", alongside religion, love, anecdote, food, personal history and memory, evoking the power and richness of poetic language and its ability to contain such diverse themes.

For Lynch, "Poetry is as good an axe as a pillow": it can comfort as much as it can cause harm. As such, it is the most important art form he knows. In the first programme he turns to the work of Seamus Heaney, for programme two, the American poet, Michael Heffernan, in programme three, Carol Ann Duffy, in programme four Michael Donaghy and finally the modernist, William Carlos Williams.

Les Talens Lyriques - Monteverdi, Castello, Fontana

Live from the Wigmore Hall

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Les Talens Lyriques, directed by Christophe Rousset, perform madrigals by Monteverdi and his contemporaries at the Wigmore Hall.
Les Talens Lyriques is the Parisian period ensemble that specialises in unearthing treasures of the French baroque but carries its combination of brilliance, vigour and scholarship into other territories.
Chief among them is Monteverdi, who dominates this programme with perhaps the most exquisite of all his madrigal-settings. Written for two tenors and continuo, Zefiro torna is a smilingly exuberant showpiece of baroque musicianship, designed to be a 17th-century smash-hit, as it remains today.

Monteverdi: From Settimo libro de madrigali:
Chiome d'oro; O come sei gentile.
Castello: Second Sonata from Sonate concertate in stilo moderno.
Monteverdi: From Madrigali guerrieri, et amorosi:
O sia tranquillo il mare; Ardo e scoprir.
Fontana: Sonata settima.
Monteverdi: Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria (excerpts);
Mentre vaga angioletta from Madrigali guerrieri, et amorosi;
Zefiro torna from Madrigali e canzonette a due e tre voci;

With Anne McElvoy.

Maajid Nawaz was an active member of the Islamist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir, cultivating revolutionary cells in the UK, Pakistan, Denmark and Egypt, until a spell in one of Hosni Mubarak's most notorious prisons made him reconsider his political convictions. Now he is an agitator for democracy in the Islamic world. His autobiography 'Radical' traces his path from political Islam to liberal democracy; he joins Anne to discuss, with Samer Libdeh, Senior Research Fellow at the Henry Jackson Foundation.

'Billy Gray was my best friend and I fell in love with his mother.' So begins John Banville's latest novel of adolescent love and middle aged grief, Ancient Light. He talks to Anne McElvoy about the art of writing, about prizes, eroticism and the impossibility of writing sex.

Former British ambassador to the USA, Sir Christopher Meyer explores different networks of power across the world. From wealthy socialites in Mumbai to the secretive operations of the KGB in Russia, he discusses how power manifests itself in different countries in the 21st Century.

Plus, New Generation Thinker Sue Anne Harding on Russian TV's mythologizing of the Beslan Massacre.

Requiem for a Garden of Eden

Scholar and writer Professor Janet Todd stumbled across the abandoned Garden of Eden on the Venetian island of La Giudecca by accident. Curious about this lost and neglected paradise she set about discovering its magical literary past.

Created in 1884 by Sir Anthony Eden's great uncle Frederick Eden and his wife, the garden was a heavily scented romantic haven visited by a host of writers including Proust, Jean Cocteau and Henry James. It was the backdrop to countless love affairs and quarrels, passing from the Edens to Greek royalty and ending up in the hands of the eccentric Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser who preferred nettles and brambles to roses and lilies.

Today the garden is overgrown and locked. Todd's requiem to this little known jewel hidden behind high walls recalls the perfumed years when artists and aesthetes revelled in its beauty.

Helen Dunmore, Fiona Shaw, Kate Tempest, Jesca Hoop

Ian McMillan presents Radio 3's 'Cabaret of the Word' from the Radio Theatre. His guests include Helen Dunmore, Fiona Shaw, Kate Tempest and Jesca Hoop.

Helen Dunmore is astonishingly versatile; she's an award-winning novelist, children's author and a remarkable poet. She'll be sharing work from her new poetry collection 'The Malarkey'. The title poem won the National Poetry Competition.

Fiona Shaw is one of our best-loved actresses, winning multiple Olivier awards for her ground-breaking performances. She'll be inviting people across the UK to nominate and record their favourite love poems for a coastal art installation called 'Peace Camp'. As part of this installation, eight murmuring, glowing encampments (where you'll hear poetry recited) will appear simultaneously at remote coastal locations from County Antrim to the tip of Cornwall.

Kate Tempest writes rhymes, lyrics, poems, prose and plays. She began at 16, rapping in battles across London, and began performing spoken word at 21. She's performed her writing on stages all over the world, from Latvia to New York, as well as playing all the major UK and European music festivals, including Glastonbury.Her first full length poetry book 'Everything Speaks in its Own Way' has just been published.

Jesca Hoop is a singer-songwriter who was born in California, but comes to the Radio Theatre by way of Manchester. Her music's been acclaimed by the likes of Tom Waits, who described it as evoking the experience of 'going swimming in a lake at night'. Her new album is 'The House That Jack Built'.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b010xyt6)
The Feast of Language

William Carlos Williams

Michigan based Thomas Lynch is an accomplished poet, essayist and funeral director whose dry wit and captivating storytelling have won him a devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic. In this series of essays, The Feast of Language, Lynch looks at five of his most beloved poets and examines how their poems have nourished and sustained him throughout his life; how their work, almost literally, can be read as a 'feast'.

Be it the subtle nuances of meaning in an elegant stanza, or the simple, visceral pleasure in the sound of a particular word, Lynch makes it clear that poetry continues to have a profound and revitalizing role in our lives.

Under the umbrella term of "Feast", Lynch explores sex and death, those "bookends of life", alongside religion, love, anecdote, food, personal history and memory, evoking the power and richness of poetic language and its ability to contain such diverse themes.

For Lynch, "Poetry is as good an axe as a pillow": it can comfort as much as it can cause harm. As such, it is the most important art form he knows. In the first programme he turns to the work of Seamus Heaney, for programme two, the American poet, Michael Heffernan, in programme three, Carol Ann Duffy, in programme four Michael Donaghy and finally the modernist, William Carlos Williams.
