The production by the Japanese director Yoshi Oida was originally seen at the Aldeburgh Festival and is now performed by Opera North and conducted by their music director Richard Farnes.

Britten wrote of Death in Venice "It's either the best or the worst music I've ever written" later adding of the work "it's everything that Peter Pears and I have stood for."

The libretto is by Myfanwy Piper and is based on the novella by Thomas Mann and deals with the developing infatuation of an ageing writer for a young Polish boy staying with the rest of his family on holiday in Venice.

During the interval there's a chance to hear our Radio 3 Music Guide to the opera which will also be available to download.

Shadowplay

Third Movement: Romantic Scherzo

Shadowplay offers a four-part 'symphony of voices' to celebrate 20 years of Between the Ears, Radio 3's home for adventurous and innovative radio. It explores the shadows that may fall between the appearance of things and their reality. Making use of the full palette available to the radio producer - documentary, fiction, music, pure sound - four feature-makers address our values, our identities, our romantic inclinations and our sense of worth.

3. Romantic Scherzo

Between the romantic fantasies of a young girl's imagination and the realities of a mature woman's experiences of love falls a shadow that allows for a playful exploration of expectations, illusions and (self-)delusions.

Radio 3's showcase for adventurous feature-making was launched in October 1993 with a 'piece for radio called Monument', which was conceived as a kind of London symphony and received the prestigious Prix Italia the following year.

Produced by Eleanor McDowall.
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.

Lucy Hughes-Hallett

Michael Berkeley's guest is the historian, biographer and critic Lucy Hughes-Hallett, whose books include a cultural history of the ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra and a story of heroism told through eight famous lives from Achilles and Odysseus to Francis Drake and Garibaldi. Her latest book, The Pike, deals with the controversial life of the Italian poet and occasional politician Gabriele d'Annunzio, who evolved from romantic idealist to radical right-wing revolutionary, culminating in his dramatic attempt to seize political power in the Croatian city of Fiume (now Rijeka). Through his ideological journey, Lucy Hughes-Hallett examines the political turbulence of early 20th-century Europe and the rise of fascism.

Lucy's musical enthusiasms range from Byzantine chant through operas by Monteverdi, Handel and Verdi to The Rolling Stones, and an extract from Debussy's Le martyre de Saint Sébastien.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03d7pl9)
The Devastation of British Art

From the Dissolution of the monasteries to the Civil War, Diarmaid MacCulloch tells the dramatic story of iconoclasm and reformation in the English church.

A difficult and gradual process, the English Reformation eventually succeeded in denuding churches up and down the country of all their images - and (during the Civil War) even their organs. Word replaced image as the medium for worship. Looking at the white-washed churches of Wetherden and Bures in Suffolk, Diarmaid assesses the complex set of motivations which drove the iconoclasts to tear down statues, dismantle rood screens and smash stained glass. He examines the journal of William Dowsing, probably the most notorious iconoclast of the Civil War period, and other documents that shine a light on the complex motivations of Reformation iconoclasts.

Diarmaid's journey also takes him to Winchester Cathedral where the great rood screen was attacked (probably under Edward) and the stained glass later smashed by Cromwell's soldiers. Academic Philip Lindley and sculptor Richard Deacon help to explain the power of religious images and the corresponding fear they induced in iconoclasts.

Finally, the Reverend Canon Doctor Roland Riem of Winchester and artist Sophie Hacker talk about the place of images in today's churches and cathedrals. Diarmaid considers whether the fanaticism of the Reformation reformers bears any relation to the iconoclastic attacks we have witnessed in our own century. And Tabitha Barber, Tate Britain curator, reflects on the legacy of this iconoclastic movement: has the destructiveness of the Reformation made a lasting impact on the history of British Art?

First broadcast in October 2013.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b01mk8z6)
The Product

Mike Walker's play is set in Vietnam shortly before Nixon's election in 1968. After their helicopter is shot down, a soldier and a journalist must battle their way through the jungle to safety. As they do so, they realise they were at the heart of opposing campaigns during the historic 1960 US presidential election which saw Kennedy defeat Nixon.

The 1960 Presidential race was the 'Mad Men' election when, for the first time, the politicians and their party machines sold themselves to a public delighting in the new medium of television. It was also the last of the old style elections, where millions of dollars was spread around to buy votes; where the dirty tricks reached their dubious height.

'Dear Jack, don't buy another vote - I'll be damned if I pay for a landslide!"
Joe Kennedy to JFK during the West Virginia Primary

Award-winning writer Mike Walker has written major docu-dramas on Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson and J. Edgar Hoover, as well as about Frank Sinatra's involvement in the 1960 campaign. He has also scripted numerous acclaimed original radio plays and dramatisations, including 'A Tale of Two Cities', 'War and Peace' and 'Life and Fate'.

He has also directed operas, making his debut with the 1994 production of La Traviata at the Royal Opera House, starring Angela Gheorghiu and conducted by Sir Georg Solti. More recently, he directed a new production of Bizet's opera Carmen for the Metropolitan Opera's 2009-2010 season. On film, he directed The Ploughman's Lunch (which won the Evening Standard Award for Best Film), Iris, a biopic of Iris Murdoch (starring Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent), and Notes on a Scandal.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03d7w4s)
Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687)

An Italian in Paris

How a Florentine peasant's son came to be the Sun King's favourite composer.

Jean-Baptiste Lully is one of those figures who loom large in histories of music; much less so in concert and on disc. In fact he's probably best known as the victim of the worst conducting accident in history, whacking himself on the toe with the weighty staff he used, in those pre-baton days, to beat time. Tragically, time was up for Lully, and he died of a gangrenous infection, at the peak of his powers, a little over two months later. All this week, Donald Macleod explores the life and work of this arrogant, ambitious, difficult, ruthless but remarkable man who came from the backstreets of Florence to be the preeminent composer of the French court in the late 17th century, the founding father of French opera and one of the leading figures in the music of his era.

In today's programme, the teenage Lully bumps into a French aristocrat in the Tuscan capital and in an incredible lucky break is whisked off to Paris to teach Italian to Anne-Marie-Louise d'Orléans, a cousin of the king. Lully's talent for dancing provided him with his next lucky break, when he was chosen to take part in a court ballet. The young Louis XIV - six years younger than Lully and himself a skilful dancer - was so impressed by the Italian's moves that he poached him from his cousin's household. Lully now proved that he could write the tunes as well as dance to them, and a court appointment followed, as 'composer of instrumental music' to the king. By the time of Louis's dynastic marriage to Maria Theresa of Spain, Lully had become an indispensable part of the French court's well-oiled musical machine, and in 1661 he was created Superintendent of the King's Chamber Music. Around the same time, he became a naturalized Frenchman, and got married - perhaps partly to dispel the rumours that were beginning to circulate about his sexuality.

MON 22:00 Free Thinking (b03dyqd3)
Derry-Londonderry

Derry-Londonderry's Cultural History

Free Thinking is BBC Radio 3's hugely popular festival of ideas and provocative debate which this year has been taking events across the UK.

In the first of 2 programmes from Derry Londonderry Radio 3's Matthew Sweet will be celebrating the city's status as City of Culture 2013 and exploring its cultural past and present with a series of discussions, events and interviews recorded at The Playhouse

From its world-famous walls to its history of 'no surrender', Derry is a city in which history and politics exert real power. But what is the city like for its citizens, as a place to live and work? Radio 3's Matthew Sweet invites writer Owen Hatherley, Derry-based architect Mary Kerrigan and local crime writer Brian McGilloway to reflect on the architecture and landscape of Derry, on its multiple identities, from Londonderry to Stroke City to LegenDerry, and on how its political and religious history has shaped not only its buildings, but also the lives of its citizens

This event is chaired by Matthew Sweet and was recorded at the Playhouse Theatre in Derry-Londonderry, this year's UK City of Culture

Free Thinking has been festivals throughout the summer including HowTheLightGetsIn at Hay, the Institute Français Philosophy Night in London, York Festival of Ideas and the Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival in Wiltshire. These events lead the way towards Free Thinking's annual weekend of debate at the Sage, Gateshead on October 25th to 27th.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b03d7w55)
Autumn 1973

The Chilean Coup

What is the difference between "personal history" and the "history of your time"? In this series for The Essay, author and broadcaster Michael Goldfarb looks back four decades to the dramatic events of Autumn 1973, a historical turning point for him, his generation and much of the world.

In the first essay, Michael Goldfarb remembers the coup that overthrew Chile's president, Salvador Allende, and wonders why this did not provoke the same protests as the Vietnam War.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03d7w57)
Fete Quaqua Festival 2013

Jez Nelson presents a series of short sets from the Fete Quaqua festival at the Vortex in London.
Quaqua is Latin for 'in every direction'; guitarist John Russell's annual celebration of free improvisation draws musicians from the UK and beyond to explore existing collaborations and one-off groupings. It's a music that's fresh and surprising every time ? and inevitably ephemeral. In the words of Irish pianist and Quaqua newbie Paul G Smyth, "it couldn't have been made by any of the individuals, it only sounds the way it does because of the people involved". This year's line up of 12 players includes the UK's Rachel Musson (sax), Alison Blunt (violin), Lawrence Casserley (electronics) and returning international artist Ute Wasserman (voice).

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton and Chris Elcombe.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03d7wnn)
Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687)

Les Deux Baptistes

Today, Jean-Baptiste Lully collaborates with a second Jean-Baptiste: Poquelin, a.k.a. Molière.

Jean-Baptiste Lully is one of those figures who loom large in histories of music; much less so in concert and on disc. In fact he's probably best known as the victim of the worst conducting accident in history, whacking himself on the toe with the weighty staff he used, in those pre-baton days, to beat time. Tragically, time was up for Lully, and he died of a gangrenous infection, at the peak of his powers, a little over two months later. All this week, Donald Macleod explores the life and work of this ambitious, arrogant, difficult, ruthless but remarkable man who came from the backstreets of Florence to be the preeminent composer of the French court in the late 17th century, the founding father of French opera and one of the leading figures in the music of his era.

In today's programme, a royal dictat throws Lully together with the greatest comic actor and playwright of his age: Molière. For seven years they enjoyed a close collaboration, producing a series of brilliant comédies-ballets culminating in Le bourgeois gentilhomme, which almost 250 years later inspired Richard Strauss to create his own music for Molière's play. Perhaps a creative relationship of such intensity was too hot not to cool down; for whatever reason - it was probably over money - the two men eventually had an acrimonious bust-up. There's an architectural side-plot; as Lully's success and wealth increased, so did the grandeur of his residential designs. That other McCloud - Kevin - would have loved him.


TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01shync)

LSO St Luke's Bach, Britten, Shostakovich

Joanna MacGregor (piano)

The first this week's series of Lunchtime Concerts exploring music by Bach, Britten and Shostakovich.

J.S. Bach's Well Tempered Clavier inspired Shostakovich to attempt the same feat, that is to write a prelude and fugue in each of the 24 major and minor keys, often quoting from Bach himself. In this recital the popular pianist Joanna MacGregor plays a selection of preludes and fugues from each composer, juxtaposed so as to compare the two compositions.

Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 1 in C major BWV 846
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue in C major
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 2 in C minor BWV 847
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue in E flat major
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 8 in E flat minor BWV 853
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue no 15 in D flat major
Bach: Prelude and Fugue no 15 in G major BWV 860
Shostakovich: Prelude and Fugue no 5 in D major

This once jealously-guarded preserve of the Sistine Chapel is juxtaposed with a setting of the same text from our own times by James MacMillan. And there's also music by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the Roman master hailed in his lifetime as, 'The Prince of Music.'

That's preceded at 7.30pm by a recent concert performance of Mendelssohn's Symphony No 4 'Italian' by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra conducted by Pablo Heras-Casado

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b03dyrfx)
Derry-Londonderry

Michael Grigsby's Film-making Career

Free Thinking is BBC Radio 3's hugely popular festival of ideas and provocative debate which this year has been taking events across the UK.

In the second of 2 programmes from Derry Londonderry Radio 3's Matthew Sweet will be examining the work and legacy of director Michael Grigsby, who died earlier this year, and who made a trilogy of films in Ulster. In the first two, Too Long A Sacrifice and The Silent War, he invited people to talk about how The Troubles had impacted on their lives. Grigsby famously banned voiceover from his films, giving his subjects the space and time to tell their story in their own words. In 2005 Grigsby returned to Ulster to make Rehearsals, an impressionistic snapshot of Belfast. Michael Grigsby's three films bear witness to two decades (and several centuries) of Ulster history. Matthew Sweet is joined by two film-makers who worked closely with Michael Grigsby, Rebekah Tolley and John Furse, to pay tribute to his work.

This event was recorded at the Playhouse Theatre in Derry-Londonderry, this year's UK City of Culture

Free Thinking has been festivals throughout the summer including HowTheLightGetsIn at Hay, the Institute Français Philosophy Night in London, York Festival of Ideas and the Daily Mail Chalke Valley History Festival in Wiltshire. These events lead the way towards Free Thinking's annual weekend of debate at the Sage, Gateshead on October 25th to 27th.

More recently, he directed a new production of Bizet's opera Carmen for the Metropolitan Opera's 2009-2010 season. On film, he directed The Ploughman's Lunch (which won the Evening Standard Award for Best Film), Iris, a biopic of Iris Murdoch (starring Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent), and Notes on a Scandal.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03d7wnq)
Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687)

Lully Takes Over

Today, Lully takes over the French operatic stage - literally.

Jean-Baptiste Lully is one of those figures who loom large in histories of music; much less so in concert and on disc. In fact he's probably best known as the victim of the worst conducting accident in history, whacking himself on the toe with the weighty staff he used, in those pre-baton days, to beat time. Tragically, time was up for Lully, and he died of a gangrenous infection, at the peak of his powers, a little over two months later. All this week, Donald Macleod explores the life and work of this ambitious, arrogant, difficult, ruthless but remarkable man who came from the backstreets of Florence to be the preeminent composer of the French court in the late 17th century, the founding father of French opera and one of the leading figures in the music of his era.

In today's programme, Lully belatedly goes into the opera business - as both poacher and gamekeeper. Not only does he write the first fully-fledged tragédies lyriques, but in a characteristically brazen move he buys the operatic 'privilege', giving him an absolute monopoly on the production of musical stage-works throughout France. Since he had fallen out with his erstwhile collaborator Molière, he was now in need of a librettist; he chose Philippe Quinault, like Lully, a man of humble origins. By this stage Lully had made a lot of enemies, and his early productions with Quinault faced a formidable cabal. At first they had the support of King Louis XIV, but that changed with their sixth collaboration, Isis - the tale of a beautiful nymph who was lusted over by Jupiter, much to the chagrin of his shrewish wife Juno. The fable was generally taken to be an allegory of court life, with Jupiter representing Louis; Isis corresponding to Marie-Elizabeth de Ludres, the latest young beauty at the court of Versailles to catch the king's eye; and Juno being an deeply unflattering portrait of Louis's chief mistress, Mme de Montespan. When the time of reckoning came, it was Quinault who took the hit; he was temporarily 'disgraced', while Lully continued to go about his business with impunity.

LSO St Luke's Bach, Britten, Shostakovich

The second in this week's series of Lunchtime Concerts exploring music by Bach, Britten and Shostakovich.

In Shostakovich's powerful Viola sonata, his final composition, the finale paraphrases Beethoven's famous Moonlight Sonata and to highlight this connection, Power and Crawford-Phillps chose to insert a short arrangement of the well known first movement.
The recital opens with Britten's youthful Suite for Violin which ends with an exuberantly distorted version of a waltz.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03d81t0)
London Philharmonic - Prokofiev, Poulenc

The London Philharmonic perform Prokofiev's nostalgic last symphony alongside Poulenc's breezy Piano Concerto and his spiritually-charged Stabat Mater, all works written in the early 1950s.

Presented by Martin Handley and Caroline Potter as part of the South Bank Centre's year-long celebration: The Rest is Noise.

Francis Poulenc: Piano Concerto
Alexandre Tharaud (piano)

Sergey Prokofiev: Symphony No.7 in C sharp minor Op. 131
London Philharmonic
Yannick Nézet-Séguin (conductor)

8.15: Interval music
Poulenc Léocadia - Incidental music for the play by Jean Anouilh given during the German Occupation of Paris and featuring a Waltz written especially for his friend the actress, Yvonne Printemps.

c. 8.45pm
Francis Poulenc: Stabat mater
Kate Royal (soprano)
London Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra
Yannick Nézet-Séguin (conductor)

Poulenc's ebullient Piano Concerto combines the grace and wit of his pre-war scores with the satirical mimicry that was rife in 20th-century Paris. The composer though, claimed that 'the best and most genuine part of myself' was to be found in his sacred music: his Stabat Mater, which ends tonight's concert, is by turns intense, intricate and spiritual. And some of that same spirit of nostalgia and melancholy suffuses Prokofiev's Seventh Symphony of 1952 The emotional restraint of this work made a huge impression on his colleague, Dmitri Shotakovich and marked Prokofiev's farewell to the symphony.


WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01qqsfw)
Landmarks: Le Grand Meaulnes

A Landmark edition in which Anne McElvoy and guests look at Alain-Fournier's celebrated and nostalgic tale of adolescent romance, Le Grand Meaulnes.
For a century France's most popular novel in the English speaking world has haunted the edges of fiction. F. Scott Fitzgerald possibly borrowed its title for "The Great Gatsby" Henry Miller venerated its hero;John Fowles claimed it informed everything he wrote.
Anne McElvoy examines its enduring appeal and legacy from the poetry of its language, to the interlocking mysteries of its plot to the intriguing romantic life and early death of its author, and the story of the woman who inspired him.

Producer Estelle Doyle.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03d7wns)
Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687)

Sons of the Sun

Today, the Sun's son gets burnt, and the son of the Sun King gets hitched.

Jean-Baptiste Lully is one of those figures who loom large in histories of music; much less so in concert and on disc. In fact he's probably best known as the victim of the worst conducting accident in history, whacking himself on the toe with the weighty staff he used, in those pre-baton days, to beat time. Tragically, time was up for Lully, and he died of a gangrenous infection, at the peak of his powers, a little over two months later. All this week, Donald Macleod explores the life and work of this ambitious, arrogant, difficult, ruthless but remarkable man who came from the backstreets of Florence to be the preeminent composer of the French court in the late 17th century, the founding father of French opera and one of the leading figures in the music of his era.

In today's programme, with his regular librettist Philippe Quinault temporarily out of favour with the king, Lully has to find a new one; he plumps for Thomas Corneille, brother of the famous tragedian. Lully and Corneille collaborated on two operas: Psyché, the story of the mortal woman so beautiful that the god Cupid fell in love with her; and Bellérophon, a yarn about the mythical Corinthian horseman who, with the aid of the winged horse Pegasus, defeated the terrible Chimaera. Bellerophon may have been mythical but his purpose was very real; to flatter Louis XIV, who would easily have seen his own magnificence reflected in the hero's glorious deeds. Louis's son, the Dauphin, was of a less energetic nature; the Duchesse d'Orléans described him as "a man who could spend a whole day lying on a sofa tapping his shoes with a cane". For his wedding to the unfortunate Marie-Anne-Christine-Victoire of Bavaria, Lully, collaborating once again with Quinault, devised an opéra-ballet - Le triomphe de l'Amour. The son of the Sun King's indolence served him well; the son of the Sun, Phaëton, had poorer judgement, insisting that his father let him drive his chariot across the sky. That didn't go well; he lost control of his vehicle and Jupiter struck him down with a thunderbolt - an absolute gift to Lully's talented set designer, Jean Berain, who created an unforgettable spectacle for Parisian audiences.

The New Common Reader

Matthew Sweet will be following in the distinguished footsteps of Samuel Johnson and Virginia Woolf. He's leading an elite party of literary explorers - Linda Grant, Aminatta Forna, Naomi Alderman and Tim Stanley on an expedition to find "the common reader" -- a being stalked by Woolf in the 20th Century and by Johnson in the 18th. Both believed that the common reader "uncorrupted with literary prejudices" was the final arbiter of "poetical honours" so it's a quest that's clearly still relevant today. The question is what does a common reader look like in our digital age? What are they reading? Where? And how? Pack your e-reader and your thesaurus of course and tune in to Night Waves and join the hunt.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03d7wnv)
Jean-Baptiste Lully (1632-1687)

The Fatal Blow

Today, Lully falls out of favour with the king and stabs himself in the foot.

Jean-Baptiste Lully is one of those figures who loom large in histories of music; much less so in concert and on disc. All this week, Donald Macleod explores the life and work of this ambitious, arrogant, difficult, ruthless but remarkable man who came from the backstreets of Florence to be the preeminent composer of the French court in the late 17th century, the founding father of French opera and one of the leading figures in the music of his era.

In today's programme, Lully goes too far - with his page-boy, a young lad called Brunet. The composer's rock-solid supporter to date, Louis XIV was scandalized, or at least had to appear so, and Lully was warned to 'amend his conduct' in future. Perhaps as a public sign of the king's disapproval, Lully's opera Armide, considered by many to be his masterpiece, did not, as usual, receive its premiere at Versailles, but in Paris. Lully had another rather more pressing problem to contend with around this time - an anal fistula, which was operated on in January 1686. When a few months later the king suffered the same affliction, the royal surgeon developed a special type of sheathed lancet to treat it. The operation, which was extensively trialled on citizens at the bottom end of the societal food chain, was a success, and celebrations broke out all over France. Lully's contribution to the frenzy of thanksgiving was a special performance of his Te Deum in Paris - during the course of which the famous self-inflicted accident took place.

2013 Festival

Michael Marmot on Self-Control

Sir Michael Marmot delivers the opening lecture of the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2013, exploring the traits that determine a healthy life span and arguing that we need to rethink the relationship between health, wealth and self-control.

Professor Marmot is one of the global pioneers of research into health inequalities - how stress, status and diet can affect our wellbeing. His ground-breaking Whitehall Studies followed the health and stress levels of British civil servants over a decade and he coined the term "status syndrome" to describe his discovery that being lower down the pecking order leads to a shorter life span.

Sir Michael Marmot's talk about whether self-control is the key to a long life was recorded earlier tonight in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead and presented by Philip Dodd. It marks the start of three weeks of Free Thinking broadcasts on BBC Radio 3.

This year's festival theme is "Who's in Control". A weekend of provocative debate, new ideas, music and performance will hear from Lionel Shriver, Patrick Ness, Dame Sally Davies, Chris Mullin, Professor Barbara Sahakian, Professor Sugata Mitra, Kathryn Tickell, Penny Woolcock, Dame Fiona Reynolds, Kevin Whately.

Now in its eighth year, the Free Thinking Festival of ideas takes place at Sage Gateshead 25-27 October 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.


FRI 23:00 The Essay (b03d800y)
Autumn 1973

The Inflation Crisis

What is the difference between "personal history" and the "history of your time"? In this series for The Essay, author and broadcaster Michael Goldfarb looks back four decades to the dramatic events of Autumn 1973, a historical turning point, he believes, for him, his generation and much of the world.

In his final essay on Autumn 1973, Michael Goldfarb summarizes how the great inflation challenged the progressive ideals of the 1968 generation, and ushered in a new era of politics.


FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b03f2c13)
