SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01mqq3w)
Fay Weldon

Michael Berkeley's guest is the best-selling novelist, playwright and screenwriter Fay Weldon, whose work has been associated with the feminist movement. Her fiction, which includes novels, five collections of short stories, and a number of plays written for TV, radio and the stage, typically portray contemporary women trapped in oppressive situations caused by the patriarchal structure of society.

She was brought up in New Zealand and returned to the UK when she was ten. She worked as a journalist before beginning a successful career as and advertising copywriter, from where she went on to write full-time. Her first novel was published in 1967, and since then she has written more than 20, including Down Among the Women (1971), Female Friends (1975), Praxis (1978), The Life and Loves of a She-Devil (1983), which was memorably filmed as a TV series, The Cloning of Joanna May (1989), and Wicked Women (1995). Her most recent novels are Chalcot Crescent (2010), Kehua! (2011), and Habits of the House (2012), the first of a trilogy about the lives of a privileged London family at the end of the 19th century (Weldon scripted the pilot episode of the popular TV series Upstairs, Downstairs).

She is a great fan of Handel's music, and has chosen two Handel extracts, 'All we like sheep have gone astray' from Messiah, and 'Angels ever bright and fair' from Theodora, sung by Isobel Baillie. There's also an extract from a Bach cantata; the opening of Act III of Wagner's Siegfried, an extract from Prokofiev's Suite from his film music to Lieutenant Kije; a short song by Charles Ives, and a track by Fay Weldon's husband, the poet Nick Fox, called 'In the Name of the Mother'.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01mns7r)
Purcell's Dido

Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of one of the earliest and best-known English operas - Purcell's "Dido and Aeneas", the love story of the Queen of Carthage and her Trojan hero. Set to a libretto by Nahum Tate, Dido and Aeneas was first performed in Chelsea in July 1688, and although it wasn't staged again in the composer's lifetime, it received a brief revival in 1700 and then disappeared completely as a staged work, with only sporadic concert performances until 1895 when the first staged version in modern times was performed by students of the Royal College of Music at London's Lyceum Theatre to mark the bicentenary of Purcell's death. It has since become one of the most frequently staged operas all over the world.

Yellow River Cantata

Today Aled Jones looks at the fascinating story behind the creation of the "Yellow River Cantata", which skilfully weaves Chinese folk music into a Western form. The Cantata was written in 1939 by a Chinese composer, Xian Xinghai, who had previously studied in Paris with Vincent d'Indy and Paul Dukas. On his return to China, Xian Xinghai merged choral music with Communist politics to write this homage to the Yellow River, an emblem of national pride, in order to encourage the Chinese to resist Japanese invasion. Also in the programme, details of a newly published novel with a plot that's given a choral twist.


SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b01063zw)

The weekly sequence of music, poetry and prose celebrates the art of doing nothing much at all. Claudie Blakley and Tony Haygarth rise from their couches to explore the idle thoughts of Keats, Jerome K. Jerome, Tennyson, Kenneth Grahame and Michel de Montaigne among others, and there is music from the likes of Debussy, Hoagy Carmichael, Vivaldi, Delius and The Kinks. Tune in if you can be bothered...

First broadcast in April 2011.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01mns9v)
John Cage: Beyond Silence

John Cage is perhaps the most influential artist of the late twentieth century. Although known primarily as a composer of music, his work stretches across - and blurs - the boundaries of different disciplines: writing, performance lectures, visual art and theatre.

It's fitting, then, that, twenty years after his death - and one hundred years since his birth - his work and ideas are hailed as an inspiration by artists of all stripes.

Presented by pianist and Cage-collaborator Richard Bernas, this programme looks less at Cage the composer, and more at his influence beyond music, as contemporary artists working in a variety of fields - from painting, sculpture and film, to dance, poetry and performance art - discuss John Cage and the impact his ideas have had on their own lives and work.

Contributors include Antony Gormley, Tacita Dean, Christian Marclay, Michael Craig-Martin, DJ Spooky and others.

Producer: Martin Williams.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01mnscl)

10.30am
The International Day of Peace is celebrated at the end of this week, and Sarah Walker's guest on Essential Classics is Satish Kumar, the current editor of Resurgence magazine, and long-term peace and environment activist. Born in India in 1936, he joined the wandering Jain sect at the age of only nine, but left them at 18 to devote himself to turning Gandhi's vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. He settled in the UK in 1973, and has been the guiding spirit behind a number of internationally-respected ecological and educational ventures including the Schumacher College International Centre for ecological studies in South Devon. A passionate advocate of nuclear disarmament, his most notable achievement was the 8000-mile 'pilgrimage for peace' which he and a friend undertook in 1962, walking between the four capitals of the nuclear world - Moscow, Paris, London and the USA - carrying no money, and depending on the kindness and hospitality of strangers. In his 50th year he undertook another similar pilgrimage, walking 2000 miles around the holy places of Britain to celebrate his love of life and nature. He has received honorary doctorates from the universities of Plymouth and Lancaster, and international awards for his peace work. In recognition of his commitment to animal welfare and compassionate living, he was recently elected vice-president of the RSPCA.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01mnwzz)
Muzio Clementi (1750-1832)

Father of the Pianoforte

This week Donald Macleod celebrates the life and music of Muzio Clementi, popularly known as "the father of the pianoforte". He takes a trip to Finchcocks Musical Museum in Goudhurst, Kent, to look at a unique selection of Clementi pianos and marks the contribution Clementi has made to piano literature, with works ranging from his Opus 40 and 50 piano sonatas, through brilliant virtuoso pieces to graded works written specially for learners, and perhaps more surprisingly for a composer who's so closely associated with the piano, the series also includes some rarely heard symphonic jewels of their day and selected chamber music.

It's a measure of the high regard in which he was held in his adopted country, that Muzio Clementi's buried in Westminster Abbey. The commemorative plain black marble slab, which accords him the title "the father of the pianoforte", acts as a reminder of the part he has played in the popularisation of the piano. In his lifetime he was famous as a virtuoso keyboard performer and a teacher, not only to the aristocracy but also to succeeding generations of keyboard players, including John Field, Ludwig Berger, later Mendelssohn's teacher and Frederic Kalkbrenner, a virtuoso soloist who taught Chopin . Clementi attained further prominence as a piano manufacturer and published some of the best known manuals for the instrument, among them "Introduction to the Art of playing on the Piano Forte" and "Gradus ad Parnassum". At one time it was said that Clementi was more famous than Mozart and Haydn as well as being much admired by Beethoven, whose music he published. However, since his death in 1832, despite being championed by the likes of Vladimir Horowitz, Clementi's reputation seems to have dwindled in comparison to that illustrious trio.
The story begins in Clementi's native Italy, with an Englishman who was enjoying the Grand Tour. Whilst he was in Rome, Peter Beckford heard Clementi play and was quick to identify the teenager's talent. Beckford effectively "bought" the services of Clementi from his silversmith father and promptly transported him to his country estate in Dorset. There Clementi remained in seclusion, and spent his time perfecting his art for seven years. When he reached the age of majority at twenty-one, he was free to leave and set about establishing a name for himself in London, where music was already a lucrative and popular entertainment.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01mnxly)
Live from Cosmo Rodewald Hall, Manchester

Beethoven

Live from Cosmo Rodewald Hall, Manchester

Presented by Tom Redmond

As part of Piano Season on the BBC, Korean pianist Sunwook Kim kicks off the first of six Monday night Live In Concerts with a recital of piano sonatas by Beethoven and Schubert.

Beethoven's 32 piano sonatas are considered by many as the pinnacle of keyboard writing - both for the technical demands they make on the performer and for the depth of Beethoven's musical utterances. Written between 1795 and 1822, they comprise one of the most important collections of works in the history of music. The conductor Hans von Bülow even called them "The New Testament" of music, with Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier being "The Old Testament". Being suitable for both private and public performance, Beethoven's sonatas form a bridge between the worlds of the salon and the concert hall.

The Beethoven baton was picked up by Franz Schubert, who contributed more than twenty of his own sonatas to the oeuvre. The Sonata in A major, D.959, is one of the last pieces he ever wrote, and is full of turbulence and drama, which perhaps points to the emotional turmoil in the composer's life due to his failing health.

Sunwook Kim came to international recognition when he won the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition in 2006, aged just 18. The competition's youngest winner for 40 years, as well as its first Asian winner, his performance for the finals unanimous praise from the press and led to concerto engagements with some of the world's finest orchestras as well as recitals throughout Europe.

Sebastian Faulks, John Elliott, Cui Jian

Rana Mitter talks to award-winning author Sebastian Faulks whose multi-layered new novel A Possible Life explores the chaos created by love,separation and missed opportunities as it journeys across continents and time during which, parents and children, soldiers, lovers and musicians risk their lives and their hearts in search of some connection. And A Possible Life is published by Hutchinson.

And Sir John Elliott's book History In The Making uses his sixty years of research experience and historical scholarship to explore the course of the discipline in relation to national and transnational histories, perceptions of decline, comparative history, art and cultural history and the sheer unexpected nature of events. History In The Making published by Yale University Press.

The imminent handover of leadership in China has focused minds inside and outside the country on whether the Communist Party can steer itself through the next decade without risking social revolution or loosening its iron grip on political power. One figure who symbolizes a rather different vision of China is the rock star Cui Jian. Cui Jian is probably China's most famous rocker - a combination of Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, and a touch of Van Halen.
His song Nothing to My Name became the anthem for the students who gathered in Tiananmen Square in spring 1989, and he was banned from playing major venues for over a decade. But nowadays he fills stadiums again, and the filmmaker Bai Qiang has made Cui the subject of Transcendence -- one of the country's first 3D movies, which cuts between footage of a recent Cui stadium concert and images from the very different China of the 1980s that had just opened up after Mao. Rana talks to the filmmaker Sun Shuyun about the film and Cui Jian.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01mnxm2)
Beyond 'Silent Spring'

Silent Spring

'Silent Spring', written by Rachel Carson and published in 1962, is widely credited with having launched the environmental movement. Serialised in The New Yorker, it caused a furore. The first chapter presents a fictionalised portrait of the devastating effects that chemicals could have on a thriving farming community "Some evil spell had settled on the community; mysterious maladies swept the flocks of chickens; the cattle and sheep sickened and died. Everywhere was a shadow of death."?
But what has been happening to environmental thinking since Silent Spring?

Here, five key figures in the world of environmentalism deliver essays on Silent Spring and some of the important works that followed it.

In episode one, writer and academic Jules Pretty of the University of Essex kicks off the series with a look at Silent Spring itself and then key figures in the environmental world will explore some of the texts that have followed on from Silent Spring.

Producer: Neil Rosser.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01mnxm4)
Uri Caine Trio

Jez Nelson presents US pianist and composer Uri Caine in concert with his trio. Caine is perhaps best known for his radical and sometimes controversial reinterpretations of classical repertoire by Mahler, Beethoven and Bach, while he is also prolific as an orchestral composer. In recent years he has performed with East-Coast musicians such as Dave Douglas and John Zorn, also devising the drum 'n' bass-inspired Bedrock Trio. In this performance, recorded at Ronnie Scott's, he returns to a more traditional piano trio format. He is joined by one of New York's most prolific bass players, John Hebert, who performs with avant-garde musicians such as Mary Halvorson as well as more straightahead groups led by the likes of pianist Fred Hersch; and drummer Clarence Penn, known for his textural approach and for appearing with, among others, French saxophonist Richard Galliano and bass player Charlie Haden.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Peggy Sutton.

The International Day of Peace is celebrated at the end of this week, and Sarah Walker's guest on Essential Classics is Satish Kumar, the current editor of Resurgence magazine, and long-term peace and environment activist. Born in India in 1936, he joined the wandering Jain sect at the age of only nine, but left them at 18 to devote himself to turning Gandhi's vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. He settled in the UK in 1973, and has been the guiding spirit behind a number of internationally-respected ecological and educational ventures including the Schumacher College International Centre for ecological studies in South Devon. A passionate advocate of nuclear disarmament, his most notable achievement was the 8000-mile 'pilgrimage for peace' which he and a friend undertook in 1962, walking between the four capitals of the nuclear world - Moscow, Paris, London and the USA - carrying no money, and depending on the kindness and hospitality of strangers. In his 50th year he undertook another similar pilgrimage, walking 2000 miles around the holy places of Britain to celebrate his love of life and nature. He has received honorary doctorates from the universities of Plymouth and Lancaster, and international awards for his peace work. In recognition of his commitment to animal welfare and compassionate living, he was recently elected vice-president of the RSPCA.

TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01mny63)
Sir John Major, Salman Rushdie, Julietta

The English National Opera's new season continues with Julietta, a rarely performed surrealist work by Bohuslav Martinu. It tells the story of Michel, a travelling salesman, who returns to a village he visited several years ago, in search of his lost love. However, when he arrives he discovers all of the villagers suffer from amnesia and the woman of his dreams may in fact be just that, a figment of his imagination. Susan Hitch reviews.

Sir John Major's upbringing was far from conventional: his father was a comedian and singer. In his memoir, My Old Man, the former Prime Minister uses his father's story as a springboard to look behind the curtain of the music hall - from its origins in Elizabethan times through to its heyday in the 19th century, and its eventual decline with the rise of radio and cinema. He's joined by music hall legend Roy Hudd to discuss the performers and history of this quintessentially British public entertainment.

Joseph Anton lived a quiet life, as quiet as was humanly possible. He is the pseudonym of Salman Rushdie during his life under Fatwa. 'Joseph' after Joseph Conrad and 'Anton' after Chekhov. In his new autobiographical novel, Rushdie describes how Joseph Anton tried to hide in the dark while out in the real world many Salman Rushdies were pilloried and hunted. He examines what happens when you lose control of the way in which you are represented in the world - is this man Joseph the real Salman Rushdie or were the others? Matthew Sweet talks to the real Salman Rushdie about life under a death sentence.

Producer: Gavin Heard.

10.30am
The International Day of Peace is celebrated at the end of this week, and Sarah Walker's guest on Essential Classics is Satish Kumar, the current editor of Resurgence magazine, and long-term peace and environment activist. Born in India in 1936, he joined the wandering Jain sect at the age of only nine, but left them at 18 to devote himself to turning Gandhi's vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. He settled in the UK in 1973, and has been the guiding spirit behind a number of internationally-respected ecological and educational ventures including the Schumacher College International Centre for ecological studies in South Devon. A passionate advocate of nuclear disarmament, his most notable achievement was the 8000-mile 'pilgrimage for peace' which he and a friend undertook in 1962, walking between the four capitals of the nuclear world - Moscow, Paris, London and the USA - carrying no money, and depending on the kindness and hospitality of strangers. In his 50th year he undertook another similar pilgrimage, walking 2000 miles around the holy places of Britain to celebrate his love of life and nature. He has received honorary doctorates from the universities of Plymouth and Lancaster, and international awards for his peace work. In recognition of his commitment to animal welfare and compassionate living, he was recently elected vice-president of the RSPCA.

Symphony No 1; Violin Concerto

Live from Symphony Hall, Birmingham

Presented by Simon Hoban

Andris Nelsons begins his complete Beethoven symphonic cycle with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra at Birmingham's Symphony Hall with the first two symphonies sandwiching the glorious Violin Concerto, played by Baiba Skride.

The symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven are the greatest journey any conductor and orchestra can take together. All of human experience is contained in these nine life-changing masterpieces. Here, Andris Nelsons and the CBSO begin that journey with the joyous First and Second Symphonies: the sound of a bold young genius stretching his wings, and ruffling a few feathers. Birmingham favourite Baiba Skride is the soloist in the glowing serenity of Beethoven's ravishing Violin Concerto.

From Buddenbrooks

"An enormous brick-red, boiled ham appeared, strewn with crumbs and served with a sour brown onion sauce, and so many vegetables that the company could have satisfied their appetites from that one dish.

Lebrecht Kroger undertook the carving, and skillfully cut the succulent slices, with his elbows slightly elevated and his two long forefingers laid out along the back of the knife and fork. With the ham went the Frau Consul's celebrated " Russian jam" - a pungent fruit conserve flavoured with spirits."

From Thomas Mann's classic German novel, set in the mid 1800s, comes this evocation of a sumptuous dinner party, presided over by old Johann Buddenbrooks and his son, the Consul. Father and his cronies stand for the Old Order, whilst the Consul sees change in the wind. Whatever, the family are close and much merriment is had, even when Dr Grabow is called to deal with a pressing case of... well, what exactly?

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01mny6r)
Howard Jacobson, Morality, Barbara Hulanicki

Howard Jacobson discusses Zoo Time, his first novel since winning the Man Booker Prize in 2010. Its main character, Guy Ableman, a novelist is in thrall to his vivacious wife Vanessa, a strikingly beautiful red-head, contrary, highly strung and blazingly angry. The trouble is, he is no less in thrall to her alluring mother, Poppy.

Morality is now back in our public life from David Cameron recently saying that it was morally wrong for the comedian Jimmy Carr to avoid tax, to France's new President Francois Hollande's committing himself to putting more morality into French politics. But should we welcome this return to morality in the public space? After all, there must have been a reason it fell out of favour. And where should the moral guidance come from? The philosopher Julian Baggini, the theologian John Milbank and historian Roey Sweet discuss.

And Philip talks to Barbara Hulanicki, the founder of the iconic store clothes Biba, who is celebrated in a new exhibition at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery. She discusses how with its cutting edge yet affordable fashion, her store transformed the High Street shopping experience in the 1960s and 70s.

Producer: Estelle Doyle.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b01mny6t)
Beyond 'Silent Spring'

The Limits to Growth

'Silent Spring', written by Rachel Carson and published in 1962, is widely credited with having launched the environmental movement. Serialised in The New Yorker, it caused a furore. The first chapter presents a fictionalised portrait of the devastating effects that chemicals could have on a thriving farming community "Some evil spell had settled on the community; mysterious maladies swept the flocks of chickens; the cattle and sheep sickened and died. Everywhere was a shadow of death."?
But what has been happening to environmental thinking since Silent Spring?

Here, five key figures in the world of environmentalism deliver essays on Silent Spring and some of the important works that followed it.

In episode three, Godfrey Boyle, of the Open University assesses the impact of 'The Limits to Growth', a 1972 book about the dangers of unchecked economic and population growth.

Mark Elder and the Hallé are joined by Sunwook Kim in Brahms' Second Piano Concerto. After the interval: Sibelius' Second Symphony.
In 2006, at the age of just eighteen, Korean pianist Sunwook Kim became the youngest winner of the prestigious Leeds International Piano Competition for forty years. In these concerts he joins Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé for a performance of Brahms's majestic Second Piano Concerto, a work that will showcase both his refined sense of lyricism and immaculate technique. After the interval comes Sibelius's powerful and romantic Second Symphony. Though the composer denied it was his 'Liberation Symphony' - a piece depicting Finnish resistance to Russian imperialism - a sense of epic struggle lies at its core.

On tonight's Night Waves with Anne McElvoy...

Ryszard Kapuscinski is probably the most famous Polish writer since Conrad and like many national icons, his legacy is a controversial one. As a new biography written by a former friend and protégé confirms, the journalist and writer had a complicated relationship with the secret services of his country; and regularly blurred fact and fiction in his journalistic writing. Anne McElvoy is joined by the author, Artur Domoslawski and Channel 4 International editor Lindsey Hilsum to discuss Kapuscinski' s greatness and failings.

New Generation Thinker Jonathan Healey talks about the 'undeserving poor' and how for 350 years the tag has been used to cash in on our fears with exaggerated tales of cheating and thievery.

There's a first night review of Strindberg's 19th century classic Mademoiselle Julie at the Barbican starring Juliette Binoche.

And Artistic Director Tom Morris shows Anne McElvoy around the magnificently restored Bristol Old Vic Theatre now back in action with John O'Keeffe's Georgian comedy Wild Oats.

That's on Night Waves tonight at 10pm.

10.30am
The International Day of Peace is celebrated at the end of this week, and Sarah Walker's guest on Essential Classics is Satish Kumar, the current editor of Resurgence magazine, and long-term peace and environment activist. Born in India in 1936, he joined the wandering Jain sect at the age of only nine, but left them at 18 to devote himself to turning Gandhi's vision of a renewed India and a peaceful world into reality. He settled in the UK in 1973, and has been the guiding spirit behind a number of internationally-respected ecological and educational ventures including the Schumacher College International Centre for ecological studies in South Devon. A passionate advocate of nuclear disarmament, his most notable achievement was the 8000-mile 'pilgrimage for peace' which he and a friend undertook in 1962, walking between the four capitals of the nuclear world - Moscow, Paris, London and the USA - carrying no money, and depending on the kindness and hospitality of strangers. In his 50th year he undertook another similar pilgrimage, walking 2000 miles around the holy places of Britain to celebrate his love of life and nature. He has received honorary doctorates from the universities of Plymouth and Lancaster, and international awards for his peace work. In recognition of his commitment to animal welfare and compassionate living, he was recently elected vice-president of the RSPCA.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01mny83)
Beyond 'Silent Spring'

The Creation

'Silent Spring', written by Rachel Carson and published in 1962, is widely credited with having launched the environmental movement. Serialised in The New Yorker, it caused a furore. The first chapter presents a fictionalised portrait of the devastating effects that chemicals could have on a thriving farming community "Some evil spell had settled on the community; mysterious maladies swept the flocks of chickens; the cattle and sheep sickened and died. Everywhere was a shadow of death."?
But what has been happening to environmental thinking since Silent Spring?

Here, five key figures in the world of environmentalism deliver essays on Silent Spring and some of the important works that followed it.

In the fifth and final episode, poet Melanie Challenger has written about her environmental concerns in 'On Extinction : How we became estranged from nature', and here she examines E O Wilson's 'The Creation', a call for unity between religion and science.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01mny85)
