It was the BBC Singers who in 1945 premiered Poulenc's a capella work Figure Humaine, which opens tonight's concert. It sets poems by Paul Eluard secretly circulated during the Occupation and is a moving tribute to the human spirit. It is followed by the composer's scintillating Concerto for Two Pianos, in the hands of two young stars, David Kadouch and Guillaume Vincent.
Ravel had few rivals as an orchestrator, as his music for the ballet Mother Goose reveals, heard tonight in a rare complete performance.
Roussel's 3rd Symphony was completed in 1930 and the composer happily declared that it was the best thing he had ever done.
The inimitable Frenchman Marc Minkowski is at the helm of the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Singers, at home in his native repertoire and a welcome guest at the Barbican Centre in London.


SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b03f5zyq)
Shadowplay

Final Movement: Art Values

Shadowplay offers a four-part 'symphony of voices' to celebrate 20 years of Between the Ears. 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.

4. Final Movement: Art Values

One of the 'variations' in the first movement of Shadowplay, broadcast earlier this month, introduced the life-model Sue Tilley. A nude portrait of her by Lucian Freud, Benefits Supervisor Sleeping, became the most expensive painting by a living artist when it was bought by Roman Abramovich in 2008. In this 'finale', Sue shares more of her life and work (as a life-model, benefits officer and '80s club-scene icon) at the centre of an exploration of the value of art - aesthetics, price-tags, high-life and the everyday.

With a cast of voices from the art world, including Tracey Emin, Ai Wei Wei, Jeff Koons, Robert Hughes, Roy Lichtenstein and Gilbert and George.

Shadowplay has been inspired by the words of TS Eliot:
Between the idea
And the reality
Between the motion
And the act
Falls the shadow.

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

Produced by Alan Hall.
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03f668x)
Free Thinking: Chris Mullin

Private Passions makes its first visit to Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of ideas. Michael Berkeley talks to Chris Mullin, former MP, thriller writer and one of the sharpest political diarists of our age. He's certainly a free thinker: in three volumes of political diaries he's given us a devastating and very funny account of the workings of Westminster, from his vantage point as Labour MP for Sunderland South.

Chris Mullin retired in 2010 after 23 years in Parliament; Michael asks him whether he was too free-thinking to get to the top â€" or perhaps his sense of humour was the problem. But there's more to Chris Mullin than his political career, as this programme reveals. He looks back to perhaps the greatest achievement of his life, when he campaigned successfully for the release of the Birmingham Six in the 1980s - innocent men imprisoned as a result of a miscarriage of justice. He talks too about his friendship with the Dalai Lama and how his travels in the Far East have given him a different perspective, and about finding love and raising a family later in life.

Chris Mullin's musical choices include Handel's 'Messiah', sung by the Parliament Choir; a Chopin Nocturne; Tibetan, Vietnamese and African music and Mozart's C Minor Mass. He also includes music by Northumbrian musician Kathryn Tickell, celebrating his deep love of the North East and the rich life he has lived there.

BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival takes place at Sage Gateshead 25-27 October and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 25 October.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03f86k6)
Production-Line Living

The industrial revolution has continuously redefined the relationship between man and machine. Never more so than in 1913, when Henry Ford introduced the first assembly line at his Michigan car plant. Now people had to work at the pace of the conveyor belt and for the rest of the twentieth century, until robots began to replace people, factory work entailed the repetition of a single task, producing boredom and anxiety in the workers, but alongside a huge surge in affordable manufactured goods. The writer and broadcaster AL Kennedy asks whether this moment, the introduction of the assembly line, is when we stopped being fully human? 'Production Line Living' is broadcast as a companion to Radio 3's 2013 Free Thinking festival at Sage Gateshead, which is asking "Who's in Control?".

From Charlie Chaplin's hapless, alienated factory worker in Modern Times to Pink Floyd's hammer-headed teacher in 'The Wall' smashing kids into their allotted moulds, AL Kennedy explores the impact and the idea of the production line. She argues that not only did it create the circumstances for mass consumption but it also enabled a 'unitised' redefinition of humanity, for example through the development of time and motion studies, which influenced everything from education and psychology to body size, living spaces, and even the way in which we express our thoughts and aspirations.

Speaking to factory workers, sociologists and psychologists, AL Kennedy teases out how the production line has impacted on our everyday lives, colouring the ways in which we understand ourselves.

Producer: Mark Smalley

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03f87n3)
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Haydn in the Early 1760s

Affectionately nicknamed Papa, reverered as the 'Father of the Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet', this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Franz Joseph Haydn through another musical form that the composer made his own, his music for Trio.

Haydn composed music for various combinations of three instruments, including strings with piano, with flute and on their own. He also created over a hundred trios featuring an obscure cello-like intrument, known as the Baryton. Donald Macleod focuses on one trio in each programme, and explores the period in which they were written, journeying with the listener from Haydn's early career in Eisenstadt, onto his celebrated visits to London, and old age in Vienna.

In the first programme, Donald introduces Haydn's String Trio No.18 in E major, written shortly after the composer found work at the court of Esterhazy in Eisenstadt.

Haydn probably composed this trio simply for his own amusment. His new employer, however, had other ideas. Prince Paul Anton Esterhazy was more interested in building a repertoire for the impressive court orchestra. The Prince himself suggested Haydn should compose some symphonies, and the outcome was a set of three depicting the times of the day, including Le Matin, The Morning in D major.

Prince Paul Anton soon died, and in 1762, Haydn had a new employer. Prince Nicholaus, thankfully, was very fond of music and haydn composed his cantata "Destatevi o miei fidi" was composed for the new prince's name day.

Wagner 200: Die Feen

As part of Wagner 200 celebrations, Martin Handley introduces Wagner's rarely heard Opera Die Feen in a recording conducted by Sir Edward Downes, featuring John Mitchinson and April Cantelo.

Messenger ... Jolyon Dodgson (Baritone)
BBC Northern Singers
BBC Northern Orchestra
Edward Downes (Conductor)

Die Feen was Wagner's first completed opera, a 3-act Romantic opera written when Wagner was 20 to his own libretto. The work received its first performance five years after Wagner's death, and wasn't staged in Britain until 1969. The models for Wagner's work were Weber and Marschner with whose work he had become familiar working as chorus master at Wurzburg. The plot involves Ada, half fairy, half mortal, who has fallen in love with Arindal, King of Tramond, and she agrees to marry him on the one condition that he does not ask her identity. Their union is blissfully happy until of course curiosity gets the better of Arindal and he asks who she is, resulting of course in Ada's disappearance. Ada reappears in Act 2 and sets Arindal various tasks, all of which he fails, and he is driven insane. The fairy tale does have a happy ending though, as the Fairy King grants Arindal immortality so he and Ada can live together in fairyland. Martin Handley introduces a recording of the opera from 1974 starring John Mitchinson as Arindal and April Cantelo as Ada, conducted by Sir Edward Downes.

Are We at a Tipping Point? Controlling Infection and Combatting Disease

Increasing resistance to antibiotics is a threat to Britain which could be as dangerous as terrorism. That's the argument put by Professor Dame Sally Davies in her Free Thinking lecture at Sage Gateshead. The first woman to hold the post of Chief Medical Officer for England, she also answers audience questions and talks about strategies for combatting infection and improving the nation's health. Joining her on stage for this discussion is Andrew Sails, Consultant Clinical Scientist and Head of Research and Development and Molecular Diagnostics at Newcastle's Public Health Laboratory, and Professor Hugh Pennnington, Emeritus Professor at the University of Aberdeen.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Anne McElvoy

Recorded at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead and first broadcast in October 2013.

Boneless, Bloodaxe and Hairy Breeches: What Did the Vikings Ever Do for Us?

When Lindisfarne monastery was attacked in 793AD the monk Alcuin described the church of St Cuthbert, "splattered with the blood of the priests." New Generation Thinker Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough, from Durham University, takes this moment as the starting point for an exploration of the power battles between Vikings and Anglo Saxons which led to the symbolic battles of 1066.

New Generation Thinkers are the winners of a talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds with the potential to turn their ideas into radio broadcasts.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03f87nk)
Peter Evans's Zebulon Trio

Jez Nelson presents trumpeter Peter Evans's Zebulon Trio, recorded live at Vortex.

The Zebulon trio is named for the Brooklyn venue of the same name, whose owner famously said he was forced to close because 'squares' had moved into the neighbourhood and ruined it for everyone. And there's nothing square about this grouping, that very rare jazz combination of trumpet, bass and drums, courtesy of John Hébert and Kassa Overall. Evans himself is known as an avant-garde player who is equally comfortable playing solo, in electro-acoustic settings, even with chamber orchestras. Watching this trio has been described like "three distinct species of the jazz genus came together to form some all-powerful mutant" (All About Jazz.com).

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

Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Haydn in the Early 1770s

Affectionately nicknamed Papa, reverered as the 'Father of the Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet', this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Franz Joseph Haydn through another musical form that the composer made his own, his music for Trio.

In the early 1770s, Haydn pushed himself hard, and produced a prodigious array of new music. One of his strangest tasks was to master the favourite instrument of his his employer, Prince Nicholaus, a weird and obscure relative of the cello, known as the Baryton - for which Haydn produced a seemly endless parade of Trio sonatas.
The work came at a price, though, and Haydn's health began to fail. Eventually, things looked so precarious that his brother was summoned from Salzburg. His eventual recovery must have seemed miraculous and, in an act of gratitude for his salvation, Haydn composed his Salve Regina in G minor.

During this period, Haydn increasingly earned his nickname of "Papa", often acting on behalf of the court musicians when disputes erupted. One particularly delicate negotiation with the Prince was eventually resolved by Haydn in a brilliant act of musical diplomacy. His actions ended the squabble and gave the world his Symphony No.45, "Farewell".

Riccardo Chailly, conductor

Long before he got into his symphonic stride, Brahms attempted to confront his Beethoven-shaped demons through the medium of the piano concerto - the first of which he conceived as the most monumental, original and hard-hitting orchestral achievement since Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. It took Brahms a long time to get his concerto just right, but when he did, he delivered a piece of staggering emotional breadth and new-found virtuosity that still thrills and surprises a century and a half later - the perfect foil to the impulsive flow, profound darkness and compelling depth of his heart-on-sleeve Third Symphony.

Matthew Sweet and an audience at The Free Thinking Festival from Sage Gateshead discuss the novel with poet Sean O'Brien, columnist David Aaronovitch and Radio 3 New Generation Thinker Sarah Dillon.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03f88bk)
Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Haydn in the Mid-1780s

Affectionately nicknamed Papa, reverered as the 'Father of the Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet', this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Franz Joseph Haydn through another musical form that the composer made his own, his music for Trio.

In the mid 1780s, Haydn was more and more occupied with music for the stage. His employer, Prince Nicholaus had a passion for opera, and his favourite, performed no less than 54 times at immense cost, was Haydn's Armida, complete with the themes of love, hate, jealousy, revenge, magic and monsters.

Haydn did however find time to compose other works during this productive period, including his Piano Trio in A, and to make the aquaintance of one Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

London audiences had been eager for Haydn to visit England for some time, but it was rumoured that his employer the Prince would not allow him. The London press were soon calling for Haydn to be kidnapped. Haydn's music was equally popular in France, and he received a commission for a set of symphonies, including La reine, The Queen, a work that became popular with Marie Antoinette.

LPO - Ligeti, Lutoslawski, Schnittke

The LPO and Michail Jurowski play Ligeti's Lontano, Lutoslawski's Cello Concerto and Schnittke's First Symphony. Part of The Rest is Noise - the Southbank's festival of 20th-century music.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London
Presented by Martin Handley

Ligeti: Lontano
Lutoslawski: Cello Concerto

8.15: Interval

Schnittke: Symphony No. 1

Johannes Moser, cello
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Michail Jurowski, conductor

For Alfred Schnittke, 'incidental' and 'serious' music were one and the same. When he began work on his First Symphony in 1969, he was also scoring the documentary film The World Today. As music for soundtrack and symphony drifted into one another, Schnittke emerged as a unique and vital symphonic voice for the coming multimedia age. Here was a composer who sampled before sampling was invented, and whose moving, emotion-filled and energy-charged symphonies reveal the paradoxes and parallels at the heart of modern life. The First Symphony remains a dramatic, almost supernatural live experience and is heard here alongside Witold Lutoslawski's celebrated Cello Concerto, written for Rostropovich. The concert opens with Ligeti's Lontano, which Alex Ross, author of The Rest Is Noise, from which the Southbank festival takes its name, describes as "a musical shadow play, in which voluptuous acts seem to be taking place behind a heavy scrim".

Affectionately nicknamed Papa, reverered as the 'Father of the Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet', this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Franz Joseph Haydn through another musical form that the composer made his own, his music for Trio.

Haydn made two visits to England. By the time of his second visit, the public were clamouring to attend his concerts. During the 1794 Haydn conducted a work that proved to be his most popular composition of that season. Britain was at war with France, and his Military Symphony had the audience shouting "Encore! Encore!"

After the 1794 concert season, Haydn made some tours of England, including Bristol, Bath and Portsmouth. On one such trip away from London, Haydn accompanied the Earl of Abingdon to the estate of Baron Aston. Haydn dedicated to his hosts a set of Trios, including the Trio in C for two flutes and cello.

Haydn's 1795 concert season started with quite a surprise. A chandelier in the concert hall fell from the ceiling. Undeterred, Haydn went on to give the premiere of his Symphony No.104, called "The London", which earned Haydn the huge sum of 4,000 gulden. The composer noted, that "such a thing is only possible in England".

Verdi 200: I due Foscari

Verdi 200: I due Foscari
The year is 1457 and the setting Venice. The octogenarian Doge, Francesco Foscari and the senators of the Council of Ten are to pass judgement on the Doge's own son, Jacopo Foscari. He has been accused of the murder some years earlier of a member of a rival family. Jacopo Foscari's wife, Lucrezia begs the Doge to protect his son from the vindictiveness of his accuser, Jacopo Loredano, but the Doge is powerless: the will of the Republic must prevail. Jacopo Foscari dies as he is carried into exile, too soon to learn of a deathbed confession from the real murderer. Despite this confession, the aged Doge himself is deposed by the Council of Ten led by the treacherous Jacopo Loredano, who writes in his ledger: 'The Foscari have paid me.'
Verdi found inspiration in Byron's exploration of Venice's harsh, secretive underbelly in his play, The Two Foscari, which he described as: "A fine subject, delicate and full of pathos.' In place of the grand choruses of Nabucco and Ernani, which preceded it, Verdi's I due Foscari of 1844 takes on a much more intimate tone: rarely has the Venetian barcarolle been infused with such dark undercurrents.

Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Haydn in the Late 1790s

Affectionately nicknamed Papa, reverered as the 'Father of the Symphony' and 'Father of the String Quartet', this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Franz Joseph Haydn through another musical form that the composer made his own, his music for Trio.

Haydn continued to produce trios into his old age, including his Piano Trio No.29 in E flat, which seems in the fast-paced finale, to perhaps anticipate the music of Beethoven.

The mid to late 1790s saw Haydn return from London to his new employer, Prince Nicholaus II, who was distinctly unmusical. Princess Marie Hermengild was often required to smooth over disagreements between the Prince and the aging composer. Haydn was still required to provide works on a regular basis for the Prince. One was his 'Mass for times of distress', later known as the Nelson Mass, although Haydn only met Lord Nelson some time after this work was composed.

Haydn also found himself collaborating with a member of the Vienna Court Orchestra, Anton Weidinger, writing music for a newly developed kind of orchestral instrument. The outcome was a work that has become one of the composer's most popular concertos, the Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra in E flat.

FRI 20:10 Discovering Music (b03f8ck4)
Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3 'Scottish'

It was during a walking tour of Scotland in 1829 that the 20 year old Felix Mendelssohn visited the Palace of Holyrood. There, while walking among the ruins of Queen Mary's home, he began to form the first ideas for his Third Symphony. However, the gestation period turned out to be lengthy. By the time Mendelssohn completed the work in 1842, his holiday 13 years earlier was a distant memory. Stephen Johnson examines the symphony's relationship to its nickname, the "Scottish".

Free Thinking Essay

In Search of Ecstasy

The audience at a rock concert adoring the star; a Pentecostalist congregation praising God; an athlete reaching the pitch of performance known as "the zone" - these can all be described as feelings of "ecstasy". Jules Evans, from Queen Mary, University of London, examines rationalist arguments about elation being a form of madness and asks whether it is beneficial or dangerous to feel ecstatic.

Producer: Zahid Warley

First broadcast in November 2013.

In their new album they return to the ancient repertoire of Hebridean songs.
