SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00dk8dg)
Domenico Zipoli

Domenico Zipoli was thought to have disappeared from European musical life just as he made his mark with the publication of his first work, the Sonate d'intavolatura per organo e cimbalo. Did his early promise fade and leave him resigned to a life of obscurity? Well, no. Scholars had known for a while that there was another Domenico Zipoli, active just after this time in Paraguay, but it wasn't until the 1950s that it was realised that the two composers were in fact one and the same.
Zipoli had joined the Jesuit reductiones and gone to South America - music played a pivotal role in in the missions, fulfilling the Jesuits' aim of transmitting the idea of God to the natives. The music he composed there was thought to be lost, until at the beginning of the 1960s when a mass for three-part choir (without bass), soloists, two violins, organ and continuo was located, reading: "copied in Potossi, in the year 1784", that is 58 years after the composer's death. The fact that over half a century after Zipoli's death his works were still performed in Argentina and in Higher Peru clearly reflect his importance. Then, in 1972, 5000 pages of manuscript music were accidentally discovered in East Bolivia, among them a large number of complete works by Zipoli. They were being used as toilet paper in the bathroom of the church sacristy! Catherine Bott explores the life and music of this amazing man, wrongly thought to have disappeared from musical life as quickly as he had appeared.

Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Father, Son and Holy Ghost, by award-winning playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah, is a drama about a young, radical pastor whose rising church career is under threat.

Pastor T - a young, funky, self-taught pentecostal minister of an urban church - is well-known for taking no prisoners, and not just in his sermons. His biblical radicalism, youthful energy and street-smart image is attractive to young and old alike, and he has helped build up a thriving church community.

Originally 'saved' from prison life by the church bishop, Pastor T is next in line to take over when the older man retires. The pastor suspects the bishop of financial misdealings, putting his conflicting loyalties to the test. And when one of Pastor T's young church pupils is threatened on the street, he takes some radical action which threatens his future at the church.

SUN 21:20 Drama on 3 (b016kdcg)
The Strange Case of the Man in the Velvet Jacket

A powerful and intriguing original play by Robert Forrest based on the writer Robert Louis Stevenson's early life in Edinburgh.

Set in 1873, the play focuses on Stevenson as a young man invigorated by the intellectual maelstrom that was still challenging the way people saw and navigated the world of arts, science and politics following the Enlightment. He may have been unsure of what his role in all this could be, but it was the things he knew he had to reject - belief in God, a career in law or engineering - that were creating turmoil in his own mind and heartache in his relationship with his parents. And meanwhile his discovery of the female species was also pre-occupying his thoughts and emotions.

Robert Forrest writes,
"Famously Stevenson created no convincing or complex women in his fiction until late in his life, with (to a degree) Catriona and (wonderfully) the two Kirsties in Weir of Hermiston. But the Stevenson who is revealed in his letters and essays is altogether different; his understanding of women, his liking, respect and admiration for them, are very striking. There was a story that he developed an intense love for an older Highland woman (he later was indeed drawn to women older than himself), but that youthful affair has been dismissed as mere legend. But what if this mysterious woman is his own invention, his inner muse, a dream figure he conjures up and is then haunted by? There are shades of Jekyll here - he creates this woman and then can't be rid of her. Is she the haunting figure of his muse?"

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01ngp50)
Rachmaninov and Medtner (1873-1943 and 1880-1951)

Episode 1

They were two of the great Russian pianist-composers of their time, yet apparently poles apart in temperament and philosophy. Or were they? As part of the BBC's Piano Season, Donald Macleod hunts out the countless intersections of their lives as they both forge their careers in the face of revolution, war and cultural exile.

It's hardly surprising that the two are remembered so differently. Whereas Rachmaninov saw out his last years in luxury, expensive cars parked outside his Beverly Hills mansion, Medtner ended his days in a non-descript semi in North London. Rachmaninov had been a musical entrepreneur, willing to follow the market, whereas Medtner had a reputation for intellectualism and stubbornness. Only Medtner would have put his musical philosophy into book form, and yet 'The Muse and the Fashion' was so impenetrable that it instantly disappeared into publishing oblivion.

But on countless occasions the musicians' careers brought them together. Rachmaninov's help and advice proved invaluable as Medtner built his early career as both pianist and composer, and the pair later formed a united front against what they saw as the destruction of Russian music. And with Rachmaninov's guidance, the anxious Medtner, who didn't speak a word of English, was able to build a lucrative concert career in Europe and the US.

During the week, we hear the two concertos which the composers dedicated to each other, and also some of the recordings which they left of their own playing, including previously unbroadcast piano roll transcriptions. And to begin, Donald Macleod pinpoints the composers' early encounters, both of them graduating from the Moscow Conservatoire. But whereas Rachmaninov leaves as a confident young artist, Medtner suffers a near-disastrous early blow to his confidence.

Herbert Blomstedt and Bruckner

Episode 1

Celebrating Herbert Blomstedt's 85th Birthday and featuring some recent performances with the distinguished orchestras with which he is associated, including the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, whose principal conductor he was for 7 years till 2005. This week focuses on that memorable partnership and also on Herbert Blomstedt's relationship with the San Francisco SO (where he was also Principal Conductor), the Dresden Staatskapelle and the orchestras of Danish and Swedish Radio.

Across the week we'll also hear the fabled middle European sound of the Leipzig Gewandhaus with some other conductors.

Blomstedt is entirely open about his Christian faith and also his especial regard for the music of Anton Bruckner with its bedrock in the composer's own deeply held faith. Blomstedt will be heard conducting a Bruckner symphony each day.

And Afternoon on 3 continues its survey of piano concertos as part of the Piano Season on the BBC. This week Bartok's gentle and folktune inspired 3rd concerto and Rachmaninov's tour de force - also his 3rd concerto.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01ngp58)
Syrian Art, Institutions and Abuse, David Thomson

While Assad's forces put the Free Syrian army in their sights, writers, artists and cartoonists are attacking the regime with words and images - as they might have done had Syria been permitted its own Arab Spring. An exhibition in Amsterdam called Culture in Defiance: Continuing Traditions of Satire, Art and the Struggle for Freedom in Syria, is bringing western attention to this work. Its curator, Malu Halasa tells Matthew how the uprising has given birth to a whole new generation of artists.

In the wake of the recent allegations about Jimmy Savile's abuse of young women and boys, Matthew Sweet asks criminologist David Wilson and priest Giles Fraser why institutions find it so difficult to respond to cases of abuse, and examines the complex relationship between the privileged and disadvantaged that exists in the world of charity.

In tonight's programme Matthew will also be talking to the film writer David Thomson about his latest book, 'The Big Screen: the Story of the Movies and What they Did to Us'. They'll be discussing the ways in which the proliferation of screens in the last few years has changed the way we view film, Thomson's concerns about how violence is being legitimised in subtle ways and whether the movies can still be seen as a unifying force in society.

Producer: Estelle Doyle.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01ngp5b)
Anglo-Saxon Portraits

King Edwin

A major new series rediscovering the Anglo-Saxons through thirty portraits of ground-breaking individuals.

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a deeply formative one.

6.King Edwin: Richard Gameson on the king of Northumbria famous for his conversion to Christianity

Edwin, king of Northumbria from 616-633, is the first Anglo-Saxon king whose rule can be examined in detail as a newly emerging superpower, but he is best remembered for his struggle over whether to convert to Christianity.

Historian Richard Gameson starts with the famous account in Bede about the life of a man being like the flight of a sparrow through a fire-lit hall: "For the few moments it is inside, the storm and wintry tempest cannot touch it, but after the briefest moment of calm, it flits from sight out into the storm again."

He goes on to place Edwin's spiritual struggle into a wider context, exploring the political implications of such a conversion at a time when a king needed to be a diplomat, showman and powerful warlord as well as a private individual.

Weaving the personal and political together, Richard Gameson's vivid portrait reveals the complex nature of kingship in early Anglo-Saxon times.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01ngp5d)

A rare visit to the UK from one of Germany's most distinguished symphony orchestras - directed by Michael Sanderling, its recently-appointed Principal Conductor.

Dvorak's New World Symphony

The Ninth Symphony by Dvorak, was the first completed work after the composer had arrived in New York, taking up his post as Director of the National Conservatory of Music of America. The symphony has definite links to Negro spirituals and plantation songs, and Dvorak encouraged this connection with America, giving it the name "From the New World". Yet at this time, Dvorak greatly missed his homeland, and the music of Czechoslovakia is also very much present within the work. Stephen Johnson explores the Symphony no.9 by Dvorak, within the context of its own musical heritage.

Philip Dodd presents.

Playwright Howard Brenton discusses his new play, 55 days, focusing on Cromwell and Charles 1st and the period between the king's capture by parliamentarians in December 1648 and his execution.

The life of traveller and writer Paddy Leigh Fermor often appears to have been one great adventure. His account of walking in the early thirties from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople is a classic. A legend quickly grew around the charming adventurer and raconteur and this month a new biography Patrick Leigh Fermor An Adventure, attempts to separate the fact from the fiction. Biographer Artemis Cooper is joined by acclaimed travel writer Colin Thubron to discuss who the great travel writer really was.

Corin Throsby reviews Elena, the Russian film which won a special prize at the Cannes Film Festival this year. It is a depiction of a grim marriage between a wealthy, but mean, business man and his dutiful ex-nurse wife and the point of desperation they eventually reach.

Jo Nesbo, the Norwegian writer and economist, reflects on his novel The Bat, as the first of the Harry Hole detective novels is finally translated into English. The series, which has sold millions of copies worldwide, follows Harry Hole, a tough detective who fights crime on the streets of Oslo while also battling his own demons.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b01ngr45)
Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Penda

Portraits of thirty ground-breaking Anglo-Saxon men and women.

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a formative one.

This major new series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty individuals, written and presented by leading historians, archaeologists and enthusiasts in the field.

7.Penda: Michael Wood celebrates the much-maligned last pagan king of England and links him with the recently discovered Staffordshire Hoard.

Distinguished historian and popular broadcaster Michael Wood considers Penda to be one of the most fascinating figures in Anglo-Saxon history . The preeminent warrior in Dark Ages Britain, Penda was also the creator of the Midlands tribal confederation which became the Kingdom of Mercia, but he was a pagan and his story has always been told by his Christian conquerors.

Now Michael Wood sheds a new and more sympathetic light on Penda's story and brings it right up to date. He suggests that Penda may in fact have been the owner of the magnificent Staffordshire Hoard. Scholars have not yet established who originally owned this astounding collection of seventh century goldwork discovered by a metal detectorist in a windswept field outside Litchfield in 2009: with his characteristic flare and passion for the vivid details of history, Michael Wood makes a serious new claim.

Producer: Beaty Rubens.

Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Hild of Whitby

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a formative one.

This major new series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty individuals - women as well as men - written and presented by leading historians, archaeologists and enthusiasts in the field.

The 8th Portrait in the series is of a woman long overdue for rediscovery.

8.Hild of Whitby
In a largely warrior-dominated society, the seventh century abbess Hild of Whitby held extraordinary power and influence. Barbara Yorke tells an important story, largely overlooked by subsequent history, of a time when a notable religious woman such as Hild could be in charge of a monastery the size of a small town - a monastery in which both monks and nuns lived and future bishops might be trained.

This Portrait also sheds fascinating light on an era before the gender politics of the newly established Church took hold . As Barbara Yorke writes: " The glory days of women like Hild could not last. She was the product of the circumstances of the conversion period when traditional religious roles of women, and the expectations of royal houses that some of the family could be church leaders, gave women unique opportunities. The patriarchal hierachy of the church asserted itself when people got down to reading the small print. The idea of a woman training a province's bishop came to be seen as impossible."

And she concludes: "Hild is a woman well worth remembering, as some thirteen hundred years would elapse before we find women holding power within the church of England that is in any way comparable to her's."

Producer: Beaty Rubens.

Diane is founder of the London Schools and the Black Child initiative, which aims to raise educational achievement levels among black children. She hosts an annual conference for educators, children and their parents and an annual academic awards ceremony. In 2008 she was awarded the Spectator/Threadneedle Speech of the Year Award and a Human Rights Award from Liberty. Two years later, she was re-elected in her constituency of Hackney North and Stoke Newington, and doubled her majority on an increased turnout. She has served on the Treasury Select Committee of the House of Commons, the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, and has recently set up a special parliamentary committee investigating gun crime. She is currently Shadow Minister for Public Health.

Diane has delivered speeches at colleges and universities in the UK and the USA, and appears regularly on radio and TV and until recently was a regular, weekly guest on the BBC1 late-night political discussion show This Week, with Andrew Neil and Michael Portillo.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01ngryf)
London Philharmonic Orchestra - Brahms, Bruckner, Shostakovich

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski conducts the LPO in Shostakovich and Bruckner, while Garrick Ohlsson is soloist in Brahms's Piano Concerto No.1

Brahms: Piano Concerto no.1

8.15 Interval

8.35
Bruckner orch Skrowaczewski: Adagio (String Quintet)
Shostakovich: Symphony no.1

Garrick Ohlsson (piano)
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Stanislaw Skrowaczewski (conductor)

Conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski gives a ravishing chamber music movement new life in his own orchestration of the glorious Adagio from Bruckner's String Quartet.
In tonight's concert, he frames this with two youthful works. It is astonishing today to think that Brahms's much-loved first piano concerto was actually hissed by early audiences 150 years ago. While still a student at the Leningrad Conservatory, by contrast, Shostakovich impressed his professors with his innovative and deeply- felt first step in his symphonic canon.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b01ngr7x)
The Q Special

Ian McMillan presents Radio 3's Cabaret of the Word - in this programme he is joined by Toby Litt, Ira Lightman, Leafcutter John and Sharon Olds who will be celebrating the letter Q.

Toby Litt is an acclaimed novelist whose books are named in alphabetical order. It was his idea to celebrate the letter Q on The Verb, and to that end he has been commissioned to write a poem in quatrains almost entirely composed of Q-words.

Sharon Olds is one of the leading voices in US contemporary poetry; her new collection Stag's Leap has just been shortlisted on this side of the Atlantic for the TS Eliot Prize. Sharon reads a poem called Q and explores the significance of the letter Q in Stag's Leap - which details the break-up of her marriage.

Leafcutter John is a musician and artist who has created a Q soundscape especially for The Verb, incorporating samples of many voices saying Q words, Q in morse code and a baby's first Q.

Ira Lightman is a conceptual poet who also makes public art and performance pieces. He explores the Q-ness of the French writer Raymond Queneau for The Verb.

This programme was first broadcast on 26th October 2012.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01ngr4r)
Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Eadfrith the Scribe

This major new series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty individuals - women as well as men, famous and humble - written and presented by leading historians, archaeologists and enthusiasts in the field.

10.Eadfrith the Scribe: Richard Gameson on the everyday working lives and vital contribution of scribes

Most of these Anglo-Saxon Portraits are of named individuals, and Eadfrith, the scribe who wrote and ornamented the magnificent Lindisfarne Gospel in around 700, is no exception.

But Richard Gameson's vivid and detailed account of Eadfrith is also a fascinating survey of the many unnamed scribes from the Anglo-Saxon period.

A leading expert from the University of Durham on the history of the book, Richard Gameson's vivid Portrait of Eadfrith is punctuated by many extraordinary facts and figures: Eadfrith's total line-length, for example, in the Lindisfarne Gospels, was nearly two kilometres and necessitated the slaughter of some 130 calves!

From the writing to the binding, ornamental covering and later copying, this account brings to life each of the essential processes in creating a book in Anglo-Saxon times.

It concludes that while the ostentatious ornatmentation suggests that the Anglo-Saxons did judge a book by its cover, the legacy of the scribes goes far beyond this. For, as Richard Gameson states: "Our knowledge of Anglo-Saxon history and literature relies almost entirely on the work of Anglo-Saxon scribes. Without scribes we would have no Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, no Beowulf, no copies of Bede's great Ecclesiastical History."

Producer: Beaty Rubens.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01ngrch)
Myshkin in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, plus American singer-songwriter Myshkin in session.

Myshkin now lives in the mountains of Oregon, where she has founded an artists' comunity, and built her own earth-walled studio. Her new album 'That Diamond Lust' was five years in the making, with a song style that has been described as folk-noir and spooky-swing.
