SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b01nj6s8)
Sumptuous Was the Feast

'Hiawatha' in the Royal Albert Hall was one of the entertainment phenomena of the 1920s and 30s in London. For two weeks each summer the hall was brimful for the dramatisation of black British composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's cantata trilogy: 'Hiawatha's Wedding Feast', 'The Death of Minnehaha' and 'Hiawatha's Departure' - collectively known as 'The Song of Hiawatha'. Hundreds of members of the giant Royal Choral Society swamped the arena (aka the tribal encampment) dressed in home-made native American costumes. A vast backcloth, depicting mountains and forests, obscured the Albert Hall's giant organ. Wigwams invaded the stage, where the principal singers (many of the best known British stars of the day) did their stuff. And the bulk of the performances was directed by Dr Malcolm Sargent, matinee idol in the making.

At the hundredth anniversary of Coleridge-Taylor's death, Andrew Green's Sumptuous Was The Feast' seeks out memories from those who appeared in the Albert Hall productions and those who attended them. Kath Marshall recalls the tribal chants of an authentic Mohawk chief. Rosemary Woodhouse crept onto the stage to solve the mystery of just how Hiawatha's canoe drifted off-stage as it departed for the Hereafter.

But this is no mere trip down memory lane. Andrew Green investigates the popularity of Longfellow's poem 'The Song of Hiawatha' on both sides of the Atlantic. He examines how Coleridge-Taylor was idolised by the black community in the USA as a role model. And has Hiawatha obscured the composer's wider output?

'Sumptuous Was The Feast' details other performances of 'Hiawatha' from Scarborough to Melbourne, Australia...before the craze died after the Second World War. But could hordes of braves and squaws again fill the arena of the Albert Hall?


SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b01nj6sb)

Donizetti's Caterina Cornaro

On threat of death, Caterina agrees. Gerardo, though is determined to get her back, and begins to realise that Lusignano is actually not an enemy, but as much a victim of circumstance as he is.

A rare chance to hear Donizetti's late opera, based on the true story of Caterina Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus, Jerusalem and Armenia in a new recording by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. John Shea presents, and is joined by Italian opera expert Francesco Izzo to explain the opera's troubled history.

SAT 21:00 The Wire (b01nj6sp)
Adventures of the Soul

Theft of a dead person's identity is one the UK's fastest growing crimes. But what if the dead decide it's time to reclaim their souls? A contemporary ghost story by leading television thriller writer Lizzie Mickery, with a soundscape incorporating original electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) recordings by collector Raymond Cass.

The first of two plays on Radio 3 for this year's Halloween. Followed on Sunday by Drama on 3: The Midnight Cry of the Deathbird, a new version of Nosferatu by Amanda Dalton

Clare opens her door to a meter reader, guides him to the cellar and watches him go down. But he doesn't come up. How can he have vanished into thin air? Clare doesn't sleep that night. No one believes her, not even the private detective she hires, although he stays on the case. They discover others too have vanished. They're a mix of illegal immigrants, criminals and conmen who left home one morning and never returned. No calls on their mobiles, no transactions on credit cards. It's as if they've been spirited away. The one thing each case has in common is that the vanished have all taken the identity of a dead person.

Meanwhile something has taken up residence in Clare's house. It picks her up and shakes her as though needing her to understand. Strange unidentifiable voices speak to her through the airwaves. Clare is terrified but determined to understand what's happening. When she discovers her late father's identity has also been stolen, she realizes whose violent spirit rages in her home. Her mission is no longer to prove her sanity but to save her father and other tortured souls from eternal limbo.

SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b01nj6ss)
Tom Service introduces three orchestral works written by leading continental composers within the last six years and played by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Matthias Pintscher. With their inspiration as varied as the "the bloodline of a murderer," and the acoustic states of being that take the imagination to its very limits," these three works call for forces ranging from the one-to-a-part world of the sinfonietta to the full panoply of the modern symphony orchestra. Behind at least two of them lies the influential figure of Gérard Grisey whose Partiels of 1975 is cited as one of the defining works for three generations of spectralist composers. In this week's Hear and Now Fifty, British composer Julian Anderson casts the spotlight on Partiels with commentary from writer Paul Griffiths.

Her current research on the biology of ageing focuses on single gene mutations and environmental interventions, such as diet, that can extend a healthy lifespan and protect against age-releated diseases. She is the recipient of many international awards, and in 2009 was appointed DBE. In 2009 the UK Research Council declared her one of six Women of Outstanding Achievement in Science, Engineering and Technology.

Beethoven - Missa Solemnis

Presented by Martin Handley

Beethoven Missa Solemnis

Jennifer Johnston (mezzo-soprano)
James Gilchrist (tenor)
Matthew Rose (bass)
Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique
Monteverdi Choir
conductor John Eliot Gardiner

"From the heart-may it in turn go to the heart!" wrote Beethoven on the score of his Missa Solemnis. Composed in order to inspire devotion in performers and audiences alike, it is one of his grandest, most challenging works. The wonderfully expressive music reflects the text of the Catholic mass, and many contrasting styles, with influences from renaissance polyphony to baroque and classical masses, can be heard. The result is a monumental, moving piece.

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b01nj7fc)
Fathers and Sons

Fathers and their sons -- or should that be sons and their fathers? Whichever way you look at it, it has to be one of the most powerful of human bonds....sometimes nurturing, sometimes destructive but always unavoidable. This evening's Words and Music features two of Britain's best known actors - Freddie Jones and as you might expect under the circumstances, his son Toby. Freddie has starred in everything from The Elephant Man to Emmerdale Farm and Toby is just as ubiquitous - think of Berberian Sound studio, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or Dr Who. They stay pretty much in character for the programme - with the odd surprise - to explore this turbulent domestic terrain drawing on Shakespeare, Turgenev, Coleridge and Michael Hoffman as they go. Further illumination, wit and vitality is provided by JS Bach and his son CPE, the Strauss family, Leopold and Wolfgang Mozart and by Max Richter and Horace Silver - so something for everyone, as they say.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01nj7ff)
The Dragon with Two Tongues

Poet Gwyneth Lewis looks at the modern revival of the Welsh language.

Inspired by a radio lecture entitled Tynged yr Iaith (The Fate of the Language) by the playwright Saunders Lewis - which predicted the end of Welsh as a living language if radical steps were not taken - in October 1962 a group of people approached the main bridge in Aberystwyth and sat down on it. They refused to move, blocking traffic for several hours. It was the first action by the newly-formed Cymdeithas yr Iaith Gymraeg (Welsh Language Society) and marked the beginning of a movement of language activism and campaigning in Wales that continues to the present day.

In the 50 years since Saunders Lewis's dire predictions, the status of the language has changed a great deal: Wales is now officially a bilingual nation, with a growing Welsh-language education sector and relatively flourishing Welsh-language publishing, film production, and music industries.

But while the number of Welsh speakers might be increasing, the number of organic Welsh-speaking communities is in decline.

Against this backdrop, bilingual poet Gwyneth Lewis examines this controversial modern revival of Welsh, finds out what living in a bilingual nation really means and assesses where the language project is going.

Featuring Dafydd Elis-Thomas, David Crystal, Geraint Talfan Davies, Deian Hopkin, Joe Dunthorne, Iain Sinclair, Simon Jenkins, Patrick McGuiness and others.

Producer: Martin Williams.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01nj7fh)
Midnight Cry of the Deathbird

The Gothic Imagination. The Midnight Cry of the Deathbird, freely inspired by the classic silent film Nosferatu for radio.

Poet Amanda Dalton was inspired to tell this story by her love of silent film and an interest in how we communicate with each other. Fascinated by silence, Nosferatu led her to imagine a version in which Ellen is deaf, living in a world of miscommunication and misinformation. In The Midnight Cry of the Deathbird, Mandy uses poetry, prose, song, monologue and dialogue to explore the ways people both talk to and miscommunicate with each other.

When the film Nosferatu was made, soldiers were returning to Germany from WW1 broken men. An influenza epidemic spread through the country at the same time, killing many people. In The Midnight Cry of the Deathbird, Amanda Dalton taps into this fear which is still relevant to us now, of silent illness and epidemics which arrive unnanounced and threaten our existence.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01nj800)
Charles Koechlin (1867-1950)

Episode 1

The music of Charles Koechlin (1867-1950) is elegant, witty and immediately engaging and appealing - the 'missing link', musically, between Debussy, Satie and Poulenc (whom he all knew). And yet...it's fallen curiously out of favour. This week, Donald Macleod lifts the lid on an extraordinary musician (with an extraordinary beard): a free-thinking pioneer whose array of interests included mountaineering, photography and Kipling's "The Jungle Book", who spent many of his later years obsessively composing works in tribute to a bevy of Hollywood starlets...A composer who began his musical life in the age of Gounod and Bizet...and ended in the age of Boulez and Stockhausen.

In the first episode of the week, Donald Macleod explores Koechlin's early vocal works, including two ravishing songs for soprano and orchestra...He also discusses the huge influence on Koechlin's music of "The Jungle Book", by Rudyard Kipling. Koechlin was fascinated by Kipling's stories, and composed five major works on themes from the book, that spanned his entire musical life. We'll be hearing them throughout the week, beginning today with Koechlin's "Three Poems", Opus 18.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01nj802)

Phil Redmond, The Master

Phil Redmond is the creator of such ground-breaking series as Grange Hill, Brookside and Hollyoaks. His new autobiography charts his journey from a Liverpool working class lad to one of the most influential producers and screenwriters in modern TV history. Redmond tells Philip Dodd how growing up on a council estate in a suburb of Liverpool, his schooling in one of the first Comprehensives and an early career as a Quantity Surveyor, fed into TV work.

Freddie Quell is an alcoholic and disturbed World War II veteran. He returns from service unsettled and apprehensive of his future but meets the charismatic Master of a cult known as The Cause who offers him salvation.

Nigel Floyd and Michael Goldfarb review.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01nj80d)
Painting Genesis

God and the Sistine Chapel

God and the Sistine Chapel

Each year millions of visitors marvel at the artistry and beauty of the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo was commissioned to undertake the project by Pope Julius II in 1508 and, with work on the scaffolding proving physically and emotionally agonizing for the reluctant artist, he recounted, "After four tortured years, more than 400 over life-size figures, I felt as old and as weary as Jeremiah. I was only 37, yet friends did not recognize the old man I had become."

On November 1 1512, All Saint's Day, the Chapel was unveiled to the world as Pope Julius II celebrated mass there for the first time in four years. According to Giorgio Vasari, Michelangelo's pupil, those who attended were left "speechless with astonishment" by the ceiling's technical mastery and scale.

Michelangelo had decorated the heart of the work, the central ceiling vault, with nine scenes from the Book of Genesis: three depicting the Creation, three the fall of Adam and Eve and three the story of Noah.

Now, to mark the 500th anniversary of the completion of the commission, four contrasting figures offer personal responses to Michelangelo's Genesis paintings.

Tonight Rev Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James's church in London's Piccadilly, explores what Michelangelo's masterpiece has to say to Christians of today, and considers the image of God that emerges from Michelangelo's vision.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01nj80g)
A Tribute to David S. Ware

Saxophonist David S. Ware died on 18th October 2012. One of the most dynamic players on the New York free-jazz scene over the last thirty years, Ware achieved international acclaim with his quartet during the 1990s; in tribute to his life of music, Jez Nelson presents an exclusive session from that band (featuring Matthew Shipp and William Parker), recorded for Jazz on 3 in 1999.

Following life-saving surgery in 2009, Ware returned to record a series of solo concerts, performances that display his trademark spiritual intensity, and to tour with Planetary Unknown, a band of free-jazz heavy-weights whose 2011 Vision Festival set also features in this programme.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Phil Smith.

In the 1930s, the sixtysomething Koechlin became besotted with the Hollywood starlet Lilian Harvey, composing over 100 pieces for her. Donald Macleod outlines a musical obsession, and explores Koechlin's unique "Seven Stars" Symphony - a symphony with each movement depicting a different actor of the silver screen. He also looks at Koechlin's relationship with his favourite pupil Catherine Urner - a meeting of musical minds that would blossom into love...and end in tragedy.

Bournemouth SO - Avner Dorman, Tchaikovsky

Live from the Lighthouse, Poole

Presented by Martin Handley

Kirill Karabits conducts Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony and before that a breathtaking new Percussion Concerto by the young Israel-born composer, Avner Dorman.

WIth its dynamic principal conductor at the helm and a brand new work written and performed by musicians both in their twenties this promises to be an exhilarating concert from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. The percussionist, Martin Grubinger is a rising star of the international percussion world and he brings this concerto hot foot from Istanbul and Leipzig: he'll certainly have to be on his toes for Avner Dorman's acrobatic showpiece.

Avner Dorman: Frozen in Time (Percussion Concerto)

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits (conductor)

Frozen Time is scored for a huge range of percussion instruments from around the world which give a series of imaginary snapshots of the Earth's geological development from prehistoric times to the present day. Each of the three movements represents one of the three land masses that emerged from the primordial continent Pangaea - "Indoafrica", "Eurasia" and "The Americas". The musical journey features the rhythms and sounds of India and south-east Asia (with cow bells and gamelan) as well as ecstatic African drumming. There is a more mysterious and chilly psychological depiction of Europe and a final exploration of jazzy grooves and grunge rock of modern America.

Landmark - The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie

Philip Dodd presents a Landmark edition examining Muriel Spark's 1961 novel The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie It's a fierce assault on the smug, joyless and sexless quality of Edinburgh middle-class life in the 1930s. Its heroine Jean Brodie, is a schoolmistress with a difference - proud, cultured and romantic, her ideas are progressive and radical. She's a dangerously confused woman, headstrong and left single by the holocaust of young men in the First World War, and forced to work out her frustrations as a teacher in a conventional Edinburgh school for girls. When she decides to transform a group of young pupils into the crème de la crème of Marcia Blaine school, 'the Brodie Set' feel honoured and privileged - but in return she expects their undivided loyalty: "give me a girl at an impressionable age and she is mine for life". However, her passionate relationship with her pupils gradually deteriorates from the eccentric and enriching, to the damaging and politically vicious. Philip Dodd is joined by novelists Ian Rankin, Louise Welsh and former Bishop of Edinburgh Richard Holloway to examine this acclaimed and disturbing portrait of adolescent trauma and lost innocence.

Colour and the Sistine Chapel

Colour and the Sistine Chapel

Each year millions of visitors marvel at the artistry and beauty of the Sistine Chapel. Michelangelo was commissioned to undertake the project by Pope Julius II in 1508 and, with work on the scaffolding proving physically and emotionally agonizing for the reluctant artist, he recounted, "After four tortured years, more than 400 over life-size figures, I felt as old and as weary as Jeremiah. I was only 37, yet friends did not recognize the old man I had become."

On November 1 1512, All Saint's Day, the Chapel was unveiled to the world as Pope Julius II celebrated mass there for the first time in four years. According to Giorgio Vasari, Michelangelo's pupil, those who attended were left "speechless with astonishment" by the ceiling's technical mastery and scale.

Michelangelo had decorated the heart of the work, the central ceiling vault, with nine scenes from the Book of Genesis: three depicting the Creation, three the fall of Adam and Eve and three the story of Noah.

Now, to mark the 500th anniversary of the completion of the commission, four contrasting figures offer personal responses to Michelangelo's Genesis paintings.

Tonight Rachel Campbell-Johnston, Chief Art Critic at The Times, explores the ethics of restoration in relation to Michelangelo's Genesis masterpiece.

Donald Macleod explores his continuing flirtation with some of the female stars of Hollywood's Golden Age - including Jean Harlow and Ginger Rogers. Plus, as Europe spirals towards war, he looks at Koechlin's radical political and musical beliefs. We end with the composer's last two works based on Kipling's "The Jungle Book".

It was he who provided the libretto for, and also directed, the early performances of Winter's 'heroic comedy' - a work complete with High Priests, a Queen of the Night, a spectacular battle with the elements, a glockenspiel and, of course, a jolly bird catcher.

Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 3

The Third Symphony by Sergei Rachmaninov was not a success when premiered in the USA. It was composed at a time when Rachmaninov and his family had left Bolshevik Russia for good. However, the composer still felt a deep connection with his homeland, and when the symphony was performed in Moscow just after the composer's death, it was a great success, touching the hearts of those in attendance.

Stephen Johnson explores Rachmaninov's Third Symphony, which despite having been written far from the composer's homeland, is deeply entrenched in a Russian heritage.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01nj8cn)
Charles Koechlin (1867-1950)

Episode 5

It's fitting that such a fiercely independent, free-thinking musical mind should compose for one of the strangest instruments of the 20th century - the early electronic instrument, the Ondes Martenot. Donald Macleod introduces Koechlin's "Towards The Sun" for solo Ondes - a work that both showcases the instrument's eerie, ethereal sound, and seems to capture the composer's own otherworldly temperament. He ends the week with two attractive late chamber works, plus the composer's last significant work for orchestra, "The Burning Bush".

Spencer de Grey

Matthew Sweet meets the architect Spencer de Grey, whose buildings include The Sage Gateshead, Stansted Airport and the British Museum Great Court.

The Sage Gateshead, which opened in 2004, hosts the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival this weekend.

Spencer de Grey is Head of Design at Norman Foster's architectural practice. Joining Foster Associates in 1973 de Grey worked on the design for the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank before returning to the UK in 1981 and spending ten years working on Stansted Airport. He has also overseen the building of the Law Faculty at Cambridge, HM Treasury in Whitehall and nine City Academy schools in the UK.

He talks to Matthew Sweet about his views on architecture, his relationship with star architect Norman Foster and the design of The Sage Gateshead, whose silver curves have been likened to an armadillo, a shell, and a giant wave.

Free Thinking, Radio 3's festival of ideas, takes place Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

2012 Festival

Mary Robinson

Mary Robinson delivers the opening lecture of the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2012, arguing that women leaders are better placed than men to sort out the crises of the 21st Century.

Mary Robinson has had a pioneering political career. She was the first female President of Ireland, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and Chair of the Council of Women World Leaders. Now she is a member of The Elders, along with Nelson Mandela and Jimmy Carter, the group of global leaders who campaign together for peace and human rights, and is President of the Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice, a centre dedicated to helping marginalised victims of climate change.

Mary Robinson's talk about women leaders was recorded earlier tonight in front of an audience at The Sage Gateshead and presented by Matthew Sweet. It marks the start of three weeks of Free Thinking broadcasts on BBC Radio 3.

This year's festival theme is "Them and Us": exploring whether the world is becoming a more divided place, discussing social inequality, difference and how we define ourselves in relation to others.

Speakers include Michael Igatieff, Lee Hall, Philippa Gregory, Antony Beevor, Amos Oz, Tom Holland, Mona Siddiqui, Jeremy Bowen, Julie Bindel, Tony Harrison, Polly Toynbee, Colm Toibin and Andrew Marr.

Plus new drama by Simon Armitage about Olympic torchbearers to be broadcast live from the Baltic.

Now in its seventh year, the Free Thinking Festival of ideas takes place at The Sage Gateshead 2-4 November and is produced and broadcast by BBC Radio 3. It's a platform for today's innovative thinkers, who debate the ideas shaping our world.

Karine Polwart in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, plus a studio session with Scottish singer-songwriter Karine Polwart.

Karine formed her first band at the age of 10, known as KP and the Minichips. She completed a degree in politics and philosophy, and this has always been reflected in her songwriting: her new album 'Traces' includes songs about the Occupy movement outside St Paul's Catherdral, as well as Donald Trump's controversial golf club development in Aberdeenshire. It also features a warm tribute to a late neighbour, and a song about the mixed emotions on leaving a family home.
