SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b01r0ywj)
Jared Diamond

Michael Berkeley welcomes Jared Diamond, the American scientist and author known for his popular science books The Third Chimpanzee, Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies (which won him a Pulitzer Prize), Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, and The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies? As an anthropologist, his work has involved over 20 expeditions to New Guinea and surrounding islands to study ecology and conservation. He is currently Professor of Geography at the University of California, Los Angeles. Some of his work, particularly concerned with the evolution of societies, has involved him in controversy.

Jared Diamond's mother was a pianist, and he is a passionate music lover. In an appropriate prelude to Radio 3's Baroque season, his choices for Private Passions include several pieces by Bach, starting with the chorale prelude Jesu meine Freude, which he first heard at Clare College Chapel in Cambridge and which motivated him to learn the organ. He has since played his third choice, Bach's St Anne Fugue, while another Bach piece, a chorus from Cantata No.50, was chosen by him and his wife for their wedding processional. He also plays the piano, and has chosen part of Beethoven's Violin Sonata in G, Op.96, which he is currently playing. His other choices include Schubert's Erlkonig, sung by Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau; part of Brahms's Sextet in B flat, Op.18, the opening chorus of C.P.E.Bach's Magnificat, which was also played at his wedding, and one of Strauss's Four Last Songs, sung by Gundula Janowitz.

SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b01r0ywn)
Live from the Stone Gallery of the Vyne

Purcell, Blow, Locke

Baroque Spring is Radio 3's month-long celebration of music and culture. Launching the season, the first of 5 live broadcasts from National Trust houses, featuring leading artists including La Risonanza with Vivaldi and Handel from Clandon Park (17th March), Le Jardin Secret with a programme of French Baroque music from Powis Castle, and a live drama from the period: Moliere's Misanthrope in a new translation by Roger McGough (10th March). The series of concerts and drama are presented by Katie Derham and for today's concert the BBC Singers and St James's Baroque, conducted by David Hill, join forces for a live broadcast from the elegant 18th-century Stone Gallery of The Vyne, a beautiful mansion in Hampshire.

The concert explores some of the wealth of church anthems and chamber music composed around the time of the Restoration - a period of English history when music flourished again after the years of the Commonwealth, when the monarch re-emerged as an important patron of the arts, and when some of the latest musical fashions from France and Italy began to be reflected in the music of our national composers.

Henry Purcell: My beloved spake
Matthew Locke: Turn thy face from my sins
Pelham Humfrey, John Blow and William Turner: I will always give thanks ('The Club Anthem')
John Blow: Chaconne
Henry Purcell: Remember not, Lord, our offences; Voluntary in G; I was glad

[NB: third item in first half is a single piece by the three composers listed].


SUN 14:45 Twenty Minutes (b01r0ywq)
National Baroque

Like many English country houses, The Vyne in Hampshire is a building upon which both successive owners and the wider march of history have left their mark. Originally a large Tudor establishment constructed on medieval foundations, in the 1650s it gained a classical portico inspired by Inigo Jones - the first such at any English country house - and a century later played an important role in the Gothic Revival. And the house is still full of the artefacts and mementos which John Chute, its then owner, brought back from his Grand Tour of Italy in the 1740s. During the interval of this afternoon's concert, in National Baroque, Katie Derham, in conversation with Lars Tharp, finds traces of the Baroque in this charming house and explores its fascinating history.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01r0ywz)
The Ideas that Shaped the Baroque

Professor Tim Blanning opens his analysis of the ideas that shaped what we now know as 'the baroque' at the Karlskirche ('Charles Church') in Vienna. Commissioned by the Emperor Charles VI in 1713 and designed by Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach, this astonishing building was completed in 1737. It exemplifies the mature baroque style with its spectacular frescoes, sumptuous decoration, magnificent dome and striking facade. Built as a votive offering following the last great plague epidemic in Vienna in 1713, it was dedicated to Charles Borromeo, a saint famous for his healing of plague sufferers. It has a fierce self-confidence, inviting worshippers not to quiet contemplation but to total immersion in the drama and movement of its decorations and illustration.

With the assistance of a team of experts, Tim then traces the development of baroque culture from its origins in seventeenth century Italy to its triumphant colonisation of most of the rest of Europe, and indeed many parts of the world, from Peru to Macau. What architects, sculptors and painters as diverse as Bernini, Caravaggio and Rubens had in common is at the heart of the programme's search for the essence of the Baroque. This was more than a style, it was a whole culture, manifesting itself in the grandest of grand palaces such as Versailles but also in decoration, dress and even the material objects of common people.

Producer: Tom Alban.


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

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

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

Queen Elizabeth ..... Celia Imrie
Simier ..... Alex Jennings
Earl of Leicester ..... David Troughton
Earl of Oxford ..... Nicholas Boulton
Philip Sidney ..... Thom Tuck
Duke of Anjou ..... Michael Maloney
Crick ..... Geoffrey Whitehead

SUN 22:00 World Routes (b01r0yx1)
The Baroque and Beyond

Paraguay

Throughout March, and as part of Baroque Spring, Lucy Duran explores Latin American Baroque in Paraguay and Bolivia. This week she's in Asuncion Paraguay where she meets the country's most celebrated harpist Nicolas Caballero. Plus she goes in search of the small and elusive Afro-Paraguayan community. Producer James Parkin

World Routes gets to the heart of Latin American Baroque in two of the continent's most musical nations. The programme makes exclusive recordings of music and musicians that date from the Baroque period, as well as other traditions that date from before or after the 16th and 17th Centuries.

In Paraguay, the focus is the harp which has become the national instrument. Duran hears it in its modern form, visits a harp school where children get off the streets and learn music, and also records one of the only true replicas of a Baroque harp on the whole continent. She savours the unique atmosphere of Misiones where she stands amongst the ruins listening to young students recreating the choral sounds of the banished Jesuits. Plus there's country music recorded on a working ranch and a session with one of the world's greatest female guitarists, Berta Rojas.

In Bolivia, Duran travels to La Paz to record the traditional panpipes of Lake Titicaca at around 4000m above sea level. Further down the mountain, there's the Andean sounds of Bolivia's most celebrated group: Los Masis. They're based very close to the spot in Sucre where Simon Boliva declared independence for the continent. And at sea level there's music from Amazonian Indians, and Baroque music written by indigenous composers in the 17th Century, but performed these days by a youth orchestra in the exquisitely renovated churches of San Jose de Chiquitos.


SUN 23:00 Jazz Line-Up (b01r0yx3)

The set features original compositions from Iain and Mike alongside their arrangements of music by Steve Swallow and Michel Legrand.

MON 06:30 Breakfast (b01r0z3r)
Baroque Spring: Monday - Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show, celebrating the Baroque Spring season. We commence the Breakfast Forty-Eight - a daily morning dose of the 48 Preludes and Fugues of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. As part of Breakfast's Musical Map of Britain, running throughout 2013, Breakfast will be asking listeners to highlight Baroque connections to their area of the UK.
BBC Radio 3's Baroque Spring is a month long season of music, drama and comedy dedicated to shedding new light on the Baroque era.


MON 09:00 Essential Classics (b01r0z3t)
Baroque Spring: Monday - Sarah Walker

Radio 3's Baroque Spring season begins this week on Essential Classics, and continues throughout the month of March.

Each week we have pioneers of the Baroque repertoire as our Artists of the Week - starting this week with John Eliot Gardiner, followed by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Christopher Hogwood and Jordi Savall.

Each Wednesday and Friday at 11am, Sarah and Rob's Essential Choices feature these artists in stand-out performances of baroque masterpieces:
John Eliot Gardiner conducts Purcell's Hail Bright Cecilia, Z328 & Vivaldi's Gloria; Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducts Telemann & Biber;
Christopher Hogwood conducts Bach's Double Concerto, BWV1043 & Pergolesi's Stabat Mater; Jordi Savall conducts Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks and Bach's Orchestral Suite No.4.

Our Essential Classics guests in the month-long season include baroque music enthusiasts, jeweller Kevin Coates (week of 11th March) and the writer and philosopher Alain de Botton (week of 18th March).

Each day on Essential Classics throughout the season, Simon Heighes offers his "Baroque Bites" insights into what is so special about the Baroque period: quirky looks at the composers; glimpses of the world as it was at the time; the musical treasures of the period. These Baroque Bites will all be available as downloads after broadcast.

9am
A selection of music, including the Essential CD of the Week: Tchaikovsky - Complete Ballets, Orchestra and Chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre, Valery Gergiev (conductor) DECCA 478 4273

10.30am
Sarah Walker guest's this week Prof. Germaine Greer, theorist, academic, and journalist, who holds an emeritus professorship in English Literature and Comparative Studies at the University of Warwick. Prof. Greer is best known for her work in twentieth century feminism: she has defined her goal as 'women's liberation' as distinct from 'equality with men', asserting that women's liberation means embracing gender differences in a positive fashion. Her ideas about gender and sexuality have provoked controversy since the release of her 1970 book, The Female Eunuch. Some of her other books include Sex and Destiny: The Politics of Human Fertility, The Change: Women, Aging and the Menopause, and Shakespeare's Wife.

11am

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01r1vt2)
George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Handel and his Italian Patrons

For Radio 3's Baroque Spring, Composer of the Week chooses four of the most well-loved Baroque composers - JS Bach, Vivaldi, Purcell and starting this week with Handel. Though Saxon by birth, Handel is often claimed by the English as one of their own. But during his early 20s, before England was even a glint in his eye, he spent a spell of three-and-a-half years, from summer 1706 to early 1710, travelling the patchwork of states we now know as Italy. He certainly chose an 'interesting' time to go; the War of the Spanish Succession was in full swing, and its reverberations were felt the length and breadth of the Italian peninsula. For most of the period he was based in Rome, but he also visited Florence, Naples and Venice, fulfilling major commissions in each city. All this week, Donald Macleod charts the composer's Italian progress, with the help of novelist, biographer and avid Handelian, Jonathan Keates.

Handel's networking skills were almost on a level with his compositional prowess, and wherever he went, he seemed effortlessly to ally himself with the most powerful and influential cultural gatekeepers of the day. So today's programme focuses on Handel's Italian patrons - princes, marquises, cardinals, duchesses - all dazzled by the brilliance of the man they knew as Il caro Sassone - the dear Saxon.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01r0z3y)

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Walton, Finzi

John Wilson and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra perform music by Holst, Walton and Bax and are joined by Paul Watkins in Finzi's Cello Concerto

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Jamie MacDougall

Conductor John Wilson -well known for his interpretations of American music- this evening leads the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in an exploration of the varied work of British composers active in the first half of the 20th Century. The concert opens with music by William Walton who, in his vivacious 'Portsmouth Point: Orchestral Overture', etches a musical image of bawdy British sailors, using all the colourful sounds of the early 20th Century orchestra.

Paul Watkins, acclaimed for his performances of British Music, joins the orchestra as soloist in Gerald Finzi's Cello Concerto, a work imbued with characteristic lyricism but with darker undertones, written shortly before the composer's untimely death in 1956.

And the concert concludes with 2 works: Holst's Ballet Music from his doomed opera, 'The Perfect Fool'; and Arnold Bax's, 'The Garden of Fand', an orchestral tone poem inspired by the ancient Celtic folklore in which the composer was steeped.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01r0z4b)
Sex in the Arab World, a New Age of Enlightenment, the Louvre as History

On Night Waves tonight Philip Dodd reviews the film Broken directed by theatre director Rufus Norris with an astonishing performance from newcomer Eloise Laurence as the young girl whose life is changed by witnessing an episode of extreme violence outside her home, inflicted by one neighbour upon another. Film critic Nigel Floyd joins Philip in the studio.

The best way to know people is to start by looking inside their bedrooms is the motto of Shereen El Feki's new book "Sex and the Citadel". As political changes sweep the streets of the Arab world, she has been looking at an upheaval closer to home - in the sexual lives of men and women in Egypt and across the region.

As Science becomes ever more popular in our news and consciousness, could we be living through a new age of Enlightenment? This is what the Future Laboratory think tank argues in an upcoming conference saying that the worlds of science, culture and commerce are colliding in a way not seen since the 17th and 18th century. But has our new found enthusiasm for this happy marriage of science and culture gone too far, especially when science becomes the main provider of Wonder? Neuroscientist Daniel Glaser from the Wellcome Institute and the philosopher of science Rupert Read discuss.

And "The story of the Louvre is the story of France". Paris based writer and academic Professor Andrew Hussey discusses with Philip Dodd the history of one of France's most famous institutions, the Museum of the Louvre. Andrew Hussey argues that if you can understand the Louvre, you can understand the wider culture and history of France.

That's Night Waves here on Radio 3 at ten o clock with Philip Dodd.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b019m3gb)
The Sound and the Fury

Episode 1

The author and journalist Andrew Martin has phonophobic traits, which call for some extreme actions:

"So I went out to buy my first box of earplugs. I must have bought... well, about a box a month ever since. The best ones are made of wax; they're covered in cotton wool and they're about the size of aniseed balls. You get twelve in a box. Soon I know I'd become addicted to them. I had also, by then, become addicted to the use at night of electrical fans for the creation of 'white noise'. I kept them going all night long..."

In the first of five essays, author Andrew Martin lays bare his life as a 'phonophobic'. How to cope with jarring sounds in the modern world? And is there an another way to live without the daily cacophony?

Producer Duncan Minshull

First broadcast in January 2012.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01r0z4d)
Guillermo Klein Quartet

Baroque fugue, American minimalism, wistful tango-canción and folksong simplicity combine in the music of Guillermo Klein. Seeing himself as first and foremost a composer, Klein emerged at the start of the last decade with a distinct brand of grooving Latin music, skilfully arranged for his large-ensemble Big Van project and the eleven-piece Los Guachos. Visiting the UK with fellow pianist Aaron Goldberg and saxophonists Chris Cheek and Miguel Zenón (collaborators encountered during his days on the New York jazz scene), the music of this Wigmore Hall concert forefronts a more intimate chamber-group side to Klein's musical personality.

Klein describes his music in terms of the three cities in which he has lived. Growing up a student of Argentinian 20th-century classical and folk music traditions, a move from Buenos Aires to Berklee and subsequent years playing in New York brought him in contact for the first time with minimalism and jazz, genres which certainly shine through in the complex rhythmic textures of the quartet's performance - while his time living in Barcelona brought about a focus on European classical music. "You cannot abstract yourself from a place - you must interact," he says, attributing his sudden and apparently impromptu bursts of vocals to the city to which he has now returned, Buenos Aires. "It's a very emotional city. People singing in the street, on the bus. Some tunes need to be sung. I'll sing them."

Producers: Phil Smith & Peggy Sutton.

George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Handel's Italian Cantatas

Though Saxon by birth, Handel is often claimed by the English as one of their own. But during his early 20s, before England was even a glint in his eye, he spent a spell of three-and-a-half years, from summer 1706 to early 1710, travelling the patchwork of states we now know as Italy. He certainly chose an 'interesting' time to go; the War of the Spanish Succession was in full swing, and its reverberations were felt the length and breadth of the Italian peninsula. For most of the period he was based in Rome, but he also visited Florence, Naples and Venice, fulfilling major commissions in each city. All this week, Donald Macleod charts the composer's Italian progress, with the help of novelist, biographer and avid Handelian, Jonathan Keates.

The closest thing Handel had to a day job at this point in his life was the production of secular cantatas for his chief Italian benefactor, the Marchese Francesco Maria Ruspoli. Handel wrote dozens of these mini operatic scenas, yet they are among the least known of his works. Today's programme focuses on some of the gems of this rich and varied repertory.

TUE 20:10 Twenty Minutes (b01r0zyc)
Sounds of the City

An audio snapshot of the city of Washington DC, captured in and around the moment of Barack Obama's inauguration for a second term as President of the United States.

From the roaring crowds of a Saturday night basketball game recorded amidst the spectators, the peace of Rock Creek Park, to the haunting melodies of street saxophonist Tim Turner, the atmosphere of the US capital is captured as the moment of inauguration approaches. Gathered by Marika Partridge of Washington's "Hear Now" audio collective, the portrait of the city that emerges from their months of recording is vibrant, idiosyncratic and aurally involving...

Featuring music by blues harmonica player Phil Wiggins, one man band David "Moe" Nelson, Christylez Bacon, guitar and beatbox and Tim Turner, alto saxophone.

Producer: Simon Elmes.

TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01r0zr0)
The Audience, Heritage, Side Effects, The Digital Revolution

With Matthew Sweet.

A first night review, by Susannah Clapp, of Peter Morgan's new play, The Audience, starring Helen Mirren as the Queen. The drama imagines the weekly private meetings the monarch has had with her twelve Prime Ministers over the years of her reign.

To mark the centenary of the Ancient Monuments and Amendments Act, Night Waves looks at the rise of the heritage movement in the UK. From its foundation by radical figures like John Ruskin and William Morris to its current manifestation in organisations like English Heritage, the idea of heritage has changed over the decades as it came to represent something of a British national identity. Simon Thurley, Chief Executive of English Heritage, the architect Richard Griffiths and architecture critic Hugh Pearman discuss what place heritage has in a modern and increasingly urbanised Britain.

Steven Soderbergh's latest - and perhaps last - film imagines horrifying consequences experienced by a young woman, Emily, after she's prescribed antidepressants by her psychiatrist. Adrian Wootton reviews.

And Jaron Lanier, one of the most important philosophers of the digital age who coined the term 'Virtual Reality', explains how the digital revolution is unlike previous world-changing revolutions: it's driving down wealth and taking away the freedoms of the people.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b019n5f7)
The Sound and the Fury

Episode 2

In his series on the noises that annoy us, Andrew Martin now holds up his hands and laments - piped music! It was always there, but isn't it getting worse?

Author and journalist Andrew Martin lays bare his life as a 'phonophobic'. How to cope with jarring sounds in the modern world? And is there another way to live without the daily cacophony?

George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Italian Influences

Though Saxon by birth, Handel is often claimed by the English as one of their own. But during his early 20s, before England was even a glint in his eye, he spent a spell of three-and-a-half years, from summer 1706 to early 1710, travelling the patchwork of states we now know as Italy. He certainly chose an 'interesting' time to go; the War of the Spanish Succession was in full swing, and its reverberations were felt the length and breadth of the Italian peninsula. For most of the period he was based in Rome, but he also visited Florence, Naples and Venice, fulfilling major commissions in each city. All this week, Donald Macleod charts the composer's Italian progress, with the help of novelist, biographer and avid Handelian, Jonathan Keates.

Today's programme explores the impact Italian music and Italian musical virtuosity had on the young Handel, who absorbed the style of Corelli in particular, just as JS Bach would shortly soak up Vivaldi's influence - although the international Handel went direct to the source (Corelli was his Roman concertmaster), while the stay-at-home Bach relied on scores brought back from the travels of others. Another Italian musician to leave a notable mark on Handel was the soprano Margherita Durastanti, with whom he may or may not have had an extra-musical liaison.

Episode 3

Katie Derham introduces Alessandro Scarlatti's oratorio The Martyrdom of St Theodosia

A terrible drama of life, love and death, Il martirio di Santa Teodosia was probably performed for the first time in Rome, under the auspices of Christine, queen of Sweden in 1684. It tells the history of Theodosia, a martyr in Tyre under Roman persecution. Scarlatti's libretto concentrates on the virginal aspect of Teodosia as she rejects prince Arsenio's love and surrenders to divine love. Arsenio, the son of the Roman governor Urbano, is hopelessly in love with her. Urbano tries to pursue Teodosia but she rejects him as she does too the crafty Roman prefect, Decio. The tyrannical and violent Urbano threatens Teodosia and finally orders her martyrdom. She dies, aged just eighteen in 308 A.D.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01r0zr2)
Danny Boyle, David Livingstone, Ruth Ozeki

From grand national narrative in the Olympic Opening Ceremony, to the treacherous dynamics within a gang of criminals in Shallow Grave, Danny Boyle's work has a very wide range indeed. Trance, his first film since the Olympics, deals with memory, betrayal and illusion. He joins Rana Mitter to discuss the British film industry and what he thinks is the role of creativity in boosting the economy.

As we approach the 200th anniversary of Dr David Livingstone's birth, Rana discusses the man beyond the infamous sentence Dr Livingstone, I presume? and reassesses his legacy in today's Africa, with historian John MacKenzie and anthropologist Kit Davis.

Rana Mitter meets Ruth Ozeki whose novel "A Tale for the Time Being" spans Japan's twentieth century and connects the trauma of the second world war with the recent Tsunami and Fukushima nuclear disasters: all this through the prism of a little girl's attempt to write the story of her great-grandmother's life.

The defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 is a well-known part of the national story. Less well known is that whilst Britain was being besieged by Catholic Europe to the south, the Tudors and early Stewarts eagerly cultivated diplomatic relations with the courts of the Russian Tsars to the north and east. An exhibition exploring this relationship opens at the Victoria & Albert Museum this weekend, and Rana visits it with Russian historian and curator of the Kremlin Museum, Dr Olga Dmitrieva.

Though Saxon by birth, Handel is often claimed by the English as one of their own. But during his early 20s, before England was even a glint in his eye, he spent a spell of three-and-a-half years, from summer 1706 to early 1710, travelling the patchwork of states we now know as Italy.

All this week, Donald Macleod charts the composer's Italian progress, with the help of novelist, biographer and avid Handelian, Jonathan Keates.

Today's programme focuses on a single work - Handel's first operatic smash hit, and a coals-to-Newcastle venture if ever there was one - Agrippina, written for the leading house in the birthplace of opera, Venice.

Baroque Spring

Baroque Spring Opera Matinee

Katie Derham presents a performance of Handel's oratorio, Jeptha.
Written in the autograph score, at the end of the chorus "How dark, O Lord, are thy decrees" is the moving note: "Reached here on 13 February 1751, unable to go on owing to weakening of the sight of my left eye." This was to prove the ailing Handel's last oratorio and in it he returns to many of the preoccupations of his earlier music in a three-part drama based on the warlike pages of the 'Book of Judges' in the Old Testament.

Jephtha..... Kurt Streit (tenor),

BBC NOW - Schumann, Elgar

Live from Cheltenham Town Hall

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

John Lill joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales to play Schumann's Piano Concerto and Jac van Steen conducts Elgar's First Symphony live from Cheltenham Town Hall.

Schumann: Piano Concerto in A minor, Op.54

8:05 Music Interval

8:25
Elgar: Symphony no.1 in A flat, Op.55

John Lill (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Jac van Steen (conductor)

Principal Guest Conductor Jac van Steen joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for two great Romantic masterpieces, from Germany and Britain, Schumann's Piano Concerto with John Lill and Elgar's First Symphony. John Lill is one of our best known and most popular pianists, respected for his fierce passion and romantic temperament. John brings his considerable talents to bear in Schumann's concerto, long a favourite with audiences, that broke new ground in the 1840s, entwining piano and orchestra together in a new way.

Elgar's first symphony was his first large-scale work, written in 1908 when he was already over 50. It's full of his famous noble melodies, all fused togeether with a remarkable unity. As a violinist, Elgar wrote with an "insider's knowledge" which makes the orchestral parts every bit as enjoyable to play as the whole symphonic sound is to hear. Elgar considered the orchestra as a mighty engine "the vehicle of the highest form of art known to the world". There's no better work than his first symphony to demonstrate that belief to its full, powerful effect.

Her ideas about gender and sexuality have provoked controversy since the release of her 1970 book, The Female Eunuch.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01r1vtz)
George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Echoes of Italy

Though Saxon by birth, Handel is often claimed by the English as one of their own. But during his early 20s, before England was even a glint in his eye, he spent a spell of three-and-a-half years, from summer 1706 to early 1710, travelling the patchwork of states we now know as Italy. He certainly chose an 'interesting' time to go; the War of the Spanish Succession was in full swing, and its reverberations were felt the length and breadth of the Italian peninsula. For most of the period he was based in Rome, but he also visited Florence, Naples and Venice, fulfilling major commissions in each city. All this week, Donald Macleod charts the composer's Italian progress, with the help of novelist, biographer and avid Handelian, Jonathan Keates.

The last of the week's programmes considers the subsequent reverberations of Handel's Italian experience: the Italian cantata movements immortalized in Messiah; the emergence of one of the composer's best-loved works, Acis and Galatea, from its Italian prototype; Handel's hommage to Corelli in his set of 12 concerti grossi; and the oratorio that framed his musical career - a 'triumph' of recycling.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b01r0zr6)
Baroque Verb

Ian McMillan presents a 'Baroque Spring' Verb, part of Radio 3's month-long celebration of Baroque music and culture. He finds out what the term 'Baroque' means for AL Kennedy, Goodbye Leopold, Michael Symmons Roberts and Joel Stickley.

Goodbye Leopold are Madi Shrimpton, Olivia Bradbury and Rosemary Hudson - they compose and perform ethereal songs, using abstract sounds and they also experiment with singing backwards. Here they share a new work, a backwards version of George Herbert's 'Heaven'.

Michael Symmons Roberts reads from his latest collection 'Drysalter' (Cape) - which contains 150 poems, all 15 lines long. Michael talks about his fascination with car imagery, his interest in writing about the body as a way of exploring metaphysics, and whether poems allow us to step out of the body and time. 'Drysalter' has already been nominated for the T.S.Eliot Prize - the third such nomination Michael's work has received.

For the Baroque Verb AL Kennedy asks what the b-word means for contemporary writers, and finds herself appalled by pounds of gold leaf and images of chubby flying toddlers. She talks about the importance of not appearing too self-regarding in writing, which is also discussed in her new book 'On Writing' (Cape). AL's novel 'Day' won the Costa Book of the Year Award, she's published numerous collections of short stories and non-fiction, and she's known for her stand-up comedy shows.

Joel Stickley has invented a nation called 'Grob' who, for the purpose of the Baroque Verb, discover the pleasures of Baroque writing much later than any other country, and embrace it with gusto. Even recipes start to be written in Ottava Rima. Joel is the Poet Laureate for Lincolnshire and the author of the hit blog 'How To Write Badly Well', which is now a book. 'A Hundred Ways to Write Badly Well' (Nasty Little Press).
