SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b02x91mc)
Rossini's La Donna del Lago

Ivan Hewett introduces Rossini's La Donna del Lago, recorded last month at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, starring Juan Diego Florez, Joyce DiDonato and Colin Lee.

Based on Walter Scott's The Lady of the Lake, Rossini's opera illustrates the Romantic fascination with Renaissance Scotland as a place of wild emotion and political confrontation.
Elena, the Lady of the Lake, longs to be united with her true love, Malcom. But her father, the rebel Duglas, is determined that she will marry the Highland chief Rodrigo. Torn between love and duty, she finds her plight is made all the more complicated by Uberto, a handsome stranger who nobody seems to know much about.
This new production by John Fulljames contains, in the words of one critic, "some of the most spectacular singing to be heard at Covent Garden for a while", and celebrates not only the historic Scotland in which the action of the opera takes place, but also the Scotland of the nineteenth century, the period of Rossini and Sir Walter Scott (when fascination with Scots history was at its height). The production highlights the beauty of Scottish landscape, of which the heroine, Elena, is a symbol, while not forgetting the struggles and battles that feature in all retellings of Scottish history.

Elena.....Joyce DiDonato (mezzo-soprano)
King James of Scotland.....Juan Diego Flórez (tenor)
Malcolm.....Daniela Barcellona (mezzo-soprano)
Douglas.....Simon Orfila (bass)

SAT 21:45 Between the Ears (b02x91mf)
It's Just Where I Put My Words: A Voice Remembered

The artist Sebastiane Hegarty explores voice, recording and memory in a sound portrait of his mother, who died in 2011. For more than four decades, Sebastiane made tapes of their time together, from a coin operated record booth in Liverpool in the late 1960s to their final recorded conversation in a care home. His mother became an essential part of his sound field, a voice and character woven into his work. This programme is a new piece, a journey with a voice through selected recordings and sound pieces. And, as he goes through his audio snapshots, Sebastiane turns to Camera Lucida, Roland Barthes' final book, in which the author contemplates photographs of his recently deceased mother. Failing to find "the truth of the face I had loved", Barthes ends up questioning the ability of photographs to "speak". But in his recordings, Sebastiane suggests, he does find his mother, her essence, in "the hesitations, inflections, stutters and errors."

Producer: Chris Ledgard.


SAT 22:15 Pre-Hear (b02x91mh)
Ian Wilson: Winter's Edge

Celebrating British Music: Winter's Edge - the String Quartet no 1 by Belfast-born Ian Wilson. It was composed in 1992, and its theme is Redemption, as exemplified in the New Testament account of the life of St Paul. Elements of conflict, isolation and destiny provided Wilson with the musical spurs for this single-movement work. Performed by the Vanbrugh Quartet for whom it was written.


SAT 22:30 Hear and Now (b02x91mk)
Luke Bedford, Gavin Bryars

Carol Ann Duffy

Michael Berkeley welcomes the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, as his Private Passions. The first woman, the first Scot, and the first openly gay person to hold the post, she was appointed in 2009, having won many awards for her poetry collections since taking first prize in the National Poetry Competition in 1983. Most recently, 'Rapture' (2005) won the TS Eliot Prize, and her latest collection, 'The Bees', won the 2011 Costa Book Award for Poetry.

Born into a Roman Catholic family in the Gorbals, a poor area of Glasgow, Carol Ann developed a passionate love of literature at school, and for a decade from the age of 16 she lived with the Liverpool poet Adrian Henri. She had two plays performed at the Liverpool Playhouse and received an honours degree in phoilosophy from the University of Liverpool. In 1996 she was appointed a lecturer in poetry at Manchester Metropolitan University and later became creative director of its Writing School. She was appointed Poet Laureate in 2009. Her work as laureate includes poems on the MPs' expenses scandal, the deaths of the last British servicemen who fought in World War I, David Beckham's tendon injury, and the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. Her poems, which explore everyday experience and a rich fantasy life, are on the school curriculum in the UK.

A keen music-lover, Carol Ann Duffy learnt the piano as a child. Her choices include Chopin's E major Etude Op.10 No.3, which her mother loved to hear her playing; extracts from Mozart's 'Marriage of Figaro' and and Christy Moore singing a song with words by W B Yeats. This edition, first broadcast in June 2012, is part of Radio 3's celebration of British music - Private Passions' guests this month are four poets from across the UK.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b02x939l)
The Gospels Come Home

As the priceless Lindisfarne Gospels visit Durham for a major exhibition after four centuries' absence, multiple-award-winning author David Almond explores what they mean to his fellow North-Easterners.

At the heart of this programme are a sequence of lyrical, location-based "meditations", in which David reflects - in his inimitable style and voice - about the ways in which the Lindisfarne Gospels, and their creation on Lindisfarne during the Anglo-Saxon era, laid the foundations for what it means to be a North-Easterner today.

The Lindisfarne Gospels are one of the world's greatest books and among the most important works of European art of the first millenium. Created on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne around the year 700, they are normally housed in the British Library in London, but for three months this summer, the Gospels are returning to the North East for a major exhibition in Durham.

David Almond visits the British Library, Durham, Newcastle and Lindisfarne itself - a location he has adored since his boyhood - to explore the meaning of the Gospels to himself and to his fellow North-Easterners.

He talks with experts in early books and local people on the island to find out more about the making of the Gospels, the unique place they hold in terms of art, religion and literature, the long journeys they have made in the past and their "homecoming" this summer.

David Almond is a writer of short stories and adult fiction but is best known for his children's writing - above all, Skellig and My Name is Mina. Amongst other awards, he has won the Carnegie Medal, the Whitbread Children's Award, The Michael L.Prinz Award, the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize and and the Smarties Book Prize.

Producer Beaty Rubens

First broadcast in June 2013.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b02x939n)
Babbage

The truly extraordinary story of Charles Babbage, a forgotten genius. One of the great scientific brains of the nineteenth century, he first conceived the computer but died a despised failure. A new play by David Pownall.

This is a play with strong contemporary overtones as Babbage is forced to constantly struggle against financial cuts and restraints imposed by successive governments and a lack of investment in scientific projects.

Although failure and injustice have dogged the lives of many inventors, Babbage really took terrible revenge upon himself. At the beginning of the play, he is building his analytical engine, the prototype of the modern computer, at his house in Dorset Street, W1. When he learns his project will no longer be funded by Government, he cracks and loses the will to fight on. He is flat broke, exhausted, bitter and disillusioned. If no one wants his computer, so be it. Let the thing be scrapped. Only one friend is able to imagine the future of the computer - Ada Lovelace, Byron's daughter, poet, prophet, gambler and mathematician. Following the early death of Babbage's wife, Ada is the most important woman in his life, despite the fact that she was married to an aristocrat. Through thick and thin, illness and despair, Babbage and Ada are a team in numbers, imagination and dreams.

First broadcast in June 2013.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

The Roots of an Enigma

Celebrating British Music: Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the 'quintessentially English' composer, Edward Elgar, whose musical roots lay firmly in Europe, and whose Catholicism and class background bequeathed him a lifelong sense of isolation from mainstream British society.

Today's programme follows Elgar from birth to the brink of his first acknowledged masterpiece via unrequited love, wind quintets written for performance in the family shed, a spell as music director at a lunatic asylum, marriage, early recognition, the advent of 'Nimrod' (August Jaeger), and the first glimmerings of success beyond the confines of his native Worcestershire.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b02x94cw)
British Symphonies and Brass Bands

Episode 1

Penny Gore continues Radio 3's celebration of British music throughout the month of June, and in particular Afternoon on 3's series of British Symphonies. Featured ensembles this week are two BBC orchestras, the BBC Philharmonic and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, and two brass bands - the Black Dyke and Foden's, performing at the 2013 Royal Northern College of Music Festival of Brass.

Today's programme starts with a concert by the BBC Philharmonic under the baton of Andrew Davis with music by three giants of British music from the first half of the 20th century: Elgar, Delius and Vaughan Williams. And later in the programme you can hear the BBC Philharmonic in Arnold Bax's Third Symphony, under the baton of a great Bax enthusiast, the late Vernon Handley.

Foden's Band play a virtuoso arrangement of Ravel's Suite No. 2 from the ballet Daphnis and Chloe, and the afternoon ends with more brass music: the world premiere of a piece by Edward Gregson called 'Of Distant Memories', performed by the Black Dyke Band.

Tomorrow you can hear the first-ever broadcast of a Symphony written by the famous conductor Leopold Stokowski - a single-movement work probably composed around 100 years ago. Despite his name and his carefully cultivated eastern European accent, Stokowski was as British as they come - he was born in Marylebone, London, of an Irish mother and an English father of Polish extraction. Other British Symphonies this week are by York Bowen, Alan Rawsthorne, Kenneth Leighton and Peter Maxwell Davies. And our Thursday Opera Matinee, as part of Verdi 200, is a performance of one of Verdi's least often heard works, Aroldo.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b02x997z)
BBC Singers - Voices and Saxophones

Live from St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge

Presented by Martin Handley

The BBC Singers, conducted by James Morgan, are joined by the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet in music for the unusual, but beguiling, combination of choir and saxophones.

Erkki-Sven Tüür: Meditatio
Nørgård: Wie ein Kind
Henry Purcell: Fantasia no 7 (Z.738)
Ian Wilson: Little Red Fish

8.25 Interval Music

8.45
Knut Nystedt: Immortal Bach
J S Bach: Contrapunctus IV from The Art of Fugue (BWV 1080)
Giya Kancheli: Amao omi

In an unusual musical collaboration, this concert brings together the expert choral forces of the BBC Singers, conducted by James Morgan, with the instrumental ones of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet. Founded in 1969 by one of the modern pioneers of the instrument, Sigurd Raschèr, the quartet are renowned for their virtuosity - and a German critic has written "If there were an Olympic discipline for wind playing, the Raschèr Quartet would definitely receive a gold medal." In tonight's wide-ranging programme they give, with the BBC Singers, the British premieres of three of the many pieces they have commissioned from living composers. The Estonian Errki-Sven Tuür sets a Latin prayer by St Anselm of Canterbury, Giya Kancheli has based his piece on a variety of sacred texts from his native Georgia, while Belfast composer Ian Wilson sets words by the Austrian Expressionist poet and artist Oscar Kokoschka. Alongside these pieces, the BBC Singers perform two contemporary works for unaccompanied voices by Per Nørgård and Knut Nystedt, while the Raschèr Quartet demonstrate that four saxophones are just as well suited to the music of the Baroque as to contemporary scores.


MON 22:00 Night Waves (b02x94d0)
Conor McPherson, 700th anniversary of Boccaccio, David Kynaston, Chris Harding

Conor McPherson's new play The Night Alive opens on Wednesday at the Donmar Warehouse in London and Conor talks to Matthew Sweet about working with his own material as writer and director, about violence on stage and who his muses are.

On the 700th anniversary of Boccaccio's birth, Matthew discusses the relevance today of the Florentine author, best known for The Decameron, a hundred tales of love, ribaldry and surprising twists of fortune . Matthew is joined by Massimo Riva, founder of the Decameron web, by Guyda Armstrong who studied how the English view Boccaccio, and the commentator Lindsay Johns who has been sharing his love of Boccaccio with inner city children.

David Kynaston has been 'Opening the Box' on the years 1957 - 59, the third in his series of books looking across the history of Britain since the Second World War. But who remembers the quiz show in which the box was opened and are we just too sentimental about the 1950s?

And New Generation Thinker Chris Harding explains how religions and scientific psychology and psychiatry are drawing ever closer together in our modern consciousness.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b0185ffn)
The Writer's Dickens

Tessa Hadley - Rooms and Reality

Five contemporary novelists examine the craft of Dickens's prose, and reflect on how the giant of British nineteenth-century fiction is both a role model and a shadow looming over their own writing. Taking as their starting point a favourite extract from one of Dickens's novels, each writer discuss Dickens's themes, narrative techniques and writing craft, and tells us what they themselves have learnt from it. They offer thoughtful, unusually engaged and focused critical appreciation of Dickens's skill, as well as valuable insights into their own work and how they themselves wrestle with the subject and technique under discussion.

Beginning the series is Tessa Hadley, writing on Rooms and Reality. Taking as her starting point the description of the Clenham's house in Little Dorritt, she explores how Dickens paints the reality of his world through his characters' houses, and reflects on how significant houses are her own writing.

Other writers in the series are A L Kennedy, Alexander McCall Smith, Romesh Gunesekera and Justin Cartwright.

First broadcast in December 2011.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b02x94d2)
Home of the Brave, Chris Sharkey

Jez Nelson presents new music from the Leeds jazz scene with acoustic quartet Home Of The Brave's unique take on the music of American Westerns and a solo set from guitarist Chris Sharkey.

Freewheeling jazz from a four-piece inspired by the music of American Westerns and distorted solo improvisations on rock-pop classics – the two collide inside the tiny top room of a city-centre pub at one of Fusebox's monthly nights in Leeds. Continuing Jazz on 3's celebration of contemporary jazz from around the UK, the double bill of Home Of The Brave and Chris Sharkey demonstrates why the Yorkshire city continues to uphold such a strong reputation for accomplished alternative music.

Headlining the night at the Fox & Newt, Home Of The Brave is the brainchild of Jazz Yorkshire's Musician of the Year in 2012, Richard Ormrod. The multi-reedsman has developed a love for the themes and harmonies of Western soundtracks by composers such as Bernstein and Morricone and with Paul Hession (drums), Jonny Flockton (guitar) and Rus Pearson (double bass) he brings something from those cinematic moods into this new experimental setting.

Over the last two decades the city of Leeds has become home to one of the country's liveliest indie and alternative rock scenes and guitarist Chris Sharkey represents a key point of intersection with the worlds of jazz and improvised music. Here heard apart from the members of improvising math-jazz outfits Collider and Trio VD of which he is a member, Sharkey's solo set nevertheless packs a powerful punch amidst the more meditative moments.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

Cracking the Enigma

Celebrating British Music: Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the 'quintessentially English' composer, Edward Elgar, whose musical roots lay firmly in Europe, and whose Catholicism and class background bequeathed him a lifelong sense of isolation from mainstream British society.

Today's programme focuses on two works: the Enigma Variations and The Dream of Gerontius. The former grew out of Elgar's musical doodlings at the piano after a hard day's teaching; the latter from his childhood faith, which was soon to suffer a serious knockback. The Variations were a huge success from the outset, while The Dream had to rebuild its reputation after a disastrous first performance.

British Symphonies and Brass Bands

Episode 2

Penny Gore continues Afternoon on 3's celebration of the British Symphony with performances by the BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and BBC Symphony Orchestra. Plus brass band music from the 2013 Royal Northern College of Music Festival of Brass.

This afternoon there are no fewer than three British Symphonies, including an exciting rarity - the first-ever recording, made specially for Afternoon on 3 by the BBC NOW, of a single movement Symphony by Leopold Stokowski, far more famous as a conductor than a composer. Despite his name and his carefully cultivated eastern European accent, Stokowski was as British as they come - he was born in Marylebone, London, of an Irish mother and an English father of Polish extraction. Nobody knows exactly when he wrote his single movement Symphony, but it was probably about 100 years ago, when he was aged about 30. Today's other British Symphonies are by York Bowen and Alan Rawsthorne.

The programme opens with the first ever 'test piece' written for brass band - 100 years ago in 1913: Percy Fletcher's Labour and Love. It's performed by the Black Dyke Band at the 2013 RNCM Festival of Brass in January. And the Black Dyke return later in the afternoon with a world premiere: Peter Graham's 'Radio City' for trombone, narrator and brass band.

All that plus virtuoso accordion player Ksenija Sidorova (who wasn't born in Marylebone).

London Symphony Orchestra: A Tribute to Colin Davis

Live from the Barbican Hall in London.

Presented by Martin Handley.

The London Symphony Orchestra pays tribute to their late President and Principal Conductor Sir Colin Davis, who died in April. The programme has been chosen to reflect Sir Colin's life in music, from his championing of composers such as Berlioz to his lifelong support for young musicians.

Richard Strauss: Festmusik der Stadt Wien

8.40: Beethoven: Symphony No 8

Brahms: Nänie
(London Symphony Chorus, Nikolaj Znaider conductor)

London Symphony Orchestra
Directed by Joseph Wolfe, Nikolaj Znaider and Gordan Nikolich

Sir Colin Davis specified that there should be no memorial service held for him: so instead the London Symphony Orchestra have decided to transform the concerts he was still scheduled to conduct into their own tribute to him. Reflecting his work with young musicians, the opening piece is played by students from two London colleges - Sir Colin held the Academy's International Chair of Conducting and Orchestral Studies. His son Joseph Wolfe conducts Sir Colin's beloved Berlioz, then Danish violinist and conductor Nikolaj Znaider directs the LSO in Mozart - Sir Colin once said "There is so much negative nonsense talked about Mozart, but he is - well, he's life itself". Sir Colin and Znaider had planned to play the work together.

Following the interval, the work that first inspired the teenage Colin Davis to become a conductor, directed by Gordan Nikolich, who was Leader of the LSO for many years under Sir Colin. The concert closes with Brahms's rarely-performed funeral song 'Nänie', a setting of a poem by Friedrich Schiller, which Brahms wrote in memory of a close friend.

Rana Mitter chairs a debate from the 2013 York Festival of Ideas on the legacy of the War of the Roses with historians Sandy Grant and Mark Ormrod and author Helen Castor reflecting on how the Wars of the Roses shaped the country from the 15th century right up to the present day.

In the year that Richard III's remains were identified beneath a Leicester Car Park, why does the Wars of the Roses continue to exert such a hold over our imaginations, from Game of Thrones to the BBC series The White Queen?

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0185ffb)
The Writer's Dickens

Romesh Gunesekera - The Orphan Eye

Five contemporary novelists examine the craft of Dickens's prose, and reflect on how the giant of British nineteenth-century fiction is both a role model and a shadow looming over their own writing. Taking as their starting point a favourite extract from one of Dickens's novels, each writer discuss Dickens's themes, narrative techniques and writing craft, and tells us what they themselves have learnt from it. They offer thoughtful, unusually engaged and focused critical appreciation of Dickens's skill, as well as valuable insights into their own work and how they themselves wrestle with the subject and technique under discussion.

In the second essay in the series, Booker-shortlisted novelist Romesh Gunesekera takes an extract from David Copperfield as a starting point for an exploration of Dickens's writing about childhood and the move from childhood into adulthood, a theme which has been significant in his own writing.

First broadcast in December 2011.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

The Long-Awaited Symphony

Celebrating British Music: Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the 'quintessentially English' composer, Edward Elgar, whose musical roots lay firmly in Europe, and whose Catholicism and class background bequeathed him a lifelong sense of isolation from mainstream British society.

Today's programme explores two very different facets of Elgar's musical personality: on the one hand, the confident unflappability of the first Pomp and Circumstance march; and on the other, the nuanced, doubt-ridden progress of the First Symphony, whose conclusion is just as triumphant but much harder won. Both works were huge, instant and enduring successes.

WED 20:00 Night Waves (b02x98y3)
Memory, The Wasp Factory, New Generation Thinker Rebecca Steinfeld

Can we choose what we want to remember and what we want to forget? "Memory Palace" is a new exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum inspired by Hari Kunzru's book of the same name. It presents a dystopian world in which remembering the past has been banned. Philip Dodd goes to the V&A to speak to Hari Kunzru about his new work, and discusses manipulation of memory, and our anxieties about forgetting, with the actor Edward Petherbridge, the historical novelist Lawrence Norfolk, and memory expert Professor Giuliana Mazzoni.

On the sixteenth of February 1984 a first book by an unknown writer hit the bookshelves. The story of murder and mayhem told by sixteen year old Frank Cauldhame was called The Wasp Factory and it was met with a mixture of admiration and disgust. Thirteen years later The Wasp Factory was included in a list of one of the top one hundred books of the twentieth century. The writer Val McDermid talks to Philip Dodd about this remarkable book and its impact, and her friend and fellow writer Iain Banks.

And historian, Rebecca Steinfeld, one of Radio 3's New Generation Thinkers, on "the war of the wombs" in Israel, a battle that pits Jewish against Arab reproductive power.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b0185ffd)
The Writer's Dickens

AL Kennedy - No Hope of Return

Five contemporary novelists examine the craft of Dickens's prose, and reflect on how the giant of British nineteenth-century fiction is both a role model and a shadow looming over their own writing. Taking as their starting point a favourite extract from one of Dickens's novels, each writer discuss Dickens's themes, narrative techniques and writing craft, and tells us what they themselves have learnt from it. They offer thoughtful, unusually engaged and focused critical appreciation of Dickens's skill, as well as valuable insights into their own work and how they themselves wrestle with the subject and technique under discussion.

In the third programme in the series, novelist, essayist and performer A L Kennedy takes an extract from Nicholas Nickleby as her starting point for a provocative exploration of poverty and misery - themes which loom large in Dickens's work, and which are never far from her own fiction.

First broadcast in December 2011.

Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

A Fat Knight and a New King

Celebrating British Music: Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the 'quintessentially English' composer, Edward Elgar, whose musical roots lay firmly in Europe, and whose Catholicism and class background bequeathed him a lifelong sense of isolation from mainstream British society.

Today's programme has a royal thread running through it. In 1911, Elgar was commissioned to write music for the coronation of George V. He fulfilled his commission but a last-minute bout of depression kept him, and his bemused wife and child, away from the ceremony, where they were to have been honoured guests. Elgar's symphonic study of Shakespeare's Fat Knight has divided audiences. He considered it his orchestral masterpiece; others find its reputation enigmatic.

Five contemporary novelists examine the craft of Dickens's prose, and reflect on how the giant of British nineteenth-century fiction is both a role model and a shadow looming over their own writing. Taking as their starting point a favourite extract from one of Dickens's novels, each writer discuss Dickens's themes, narrative techniques and writing craft, and tells us what they themselves have learnt from it. They offer thoughtful, unusually engaged and focused critical appreciation of Dickens's skill, as well as valuable insights into their own work and how they themselves wrestle with the subject and technique under discussion.

In the fourth programme in the series novelist Alexander McCall Smith salutes Dickens's mastery of the episodic form, something he himself used with great success in his novels 44 Scotland Street, published over several years in a daily newspaper, and Corduroy Mansions, published in daily episodes online.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b02x98yw)
Edward Elgar (1857-1934)

War and Beyond

Celebrating British Music: Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the 'quintessentially English' composer, Edward Elgar, whose musical roots lay firmly in Europe, and whose Catholicism and class background bequeathed him a lifelong sense of isolation from mainstream British society.

Today's programme charts Elgar's progress during and after World War I. The blithe bluster of Carillon, written at the beginning of the conflict, gives way to the deep melancholy of the Cello Concerto, written at the other end of the collective European nightmare. Within a year of the concerto, Elgar's wife Alice died of undiagnosed lung cancer and from that point on he completed no new works of substance. He did, however, throw himself into a major recording project, committing interpretations of much of his own orchestral output to disc - the first such undertaking by a composer.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b0185ffj)
The Writer's Dickens

Justin Cartwright - Christmas

Five contemporary novelists examine the craft of Dickens's prose, and reflect on how the giant of British nineteenth-century fiction is both a role model and a shadow looming over their own writing. Taking as their starting point a favourite extract from one of Dickens's novels, each writer discuss Dickens's themes, narrative techniques and writing craft, and tells us what they themselves have learnt from it. They offer thoughtful, unusually engaged and focused critical appreciation of Dickens's skill, as well as valuable insights into their own work and how they themselves wrestle with the subject and technique under discussion.

In the final programme in the series, novelist Justin Cartwright reflects on the significant place Christmas occupies in Dickens's work, and argues that this is a direct result of his experiences as a child and not simply an expression of sentiment.

First broadcast in December 2011.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b02x9965)
