SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b03h37qy)
Sir John Eliot Gardiner

Tom Service interviews one of the most influential musicians of our time - the conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner. In his new book on Bach, 'Music in the Castle of Heaven', Sir John Eliot offers a portrait of this most enigmatic musical genius. He tells Tom how a Silesian refugee arrived at his family farm in Dorset in 1936 with two items of luggage: a guitar and the celebrated portrait of Bach by Haussmann, which led to Sir John Eliot growing up 'under the Cantor's gaze'. It was the start of a lifetime's fascination with Bach, the man and his music, and Sir John Eliot recalls his frustration at the 'precious' way his music was performed during his university years at Cambridge in the 1960S. Biographical information on Bach is sparse, but Sir John Eliot tells Tom how his research paints a picture of a rebellious man, perhaps thuggish in his teenaged years, with a mania for composition. Bach's Cantatas, Passions and Motets, Sir John Eliot argues, offer the most revealing glimpses of the composer: passionate, querulous, self- castigating but also one who believed he had been selected by God to create a new and glorious music.

First broadcast in November 2013.

Frank Zappa's 200 Motels

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03h3l4g)
Martin Gayford

Martin Gayford has a passion for painting and music, and has spent his career writing about artists - Constable, Van Gogh, David Hockney, Lucian Freud - and thinking about the connection between art and music. His new biography of Michelangelo is published in this month, and in this edition of Private Passions he explores the musical worlds of some of our greatest painters. He begins with the choir that Michelangelo heard as he lay high up on the scaffolding, painting the Sistine Ceiling - there were complaints he banged around too much, interfering with the music.

Martin Gayford then moves on to talk about the painter Constable as a musician (he was a flautist) and to tell the story of Van Gogh's attempt to learn the piano - in order to experience synaesthesia, and paint the music he played in bright colours.

Apart from his biographies of great artists, Martin Gayford is famous because his portrait was painted by Lucian Freud ('Man in a Blue Scarf'), a process that took 18 months. During that time they visited jazz clubs together, and the programme includes some of Freud's favourite music. There's also a food theme running through the programme - Gayford is a keen cook - and the programme ends with one of Toulouse Lautrec's favourite recipes, designed to be bright orange. As always Michael Berkeley's programme is perfect timing for cooking Sunday Lunch.

Music choices include: Debussy, Duke Ellington, Haydn, Arcadelt, Thelonius Monk, Stravinsky's 'Rake's Progress' and Billie Holliday.

It's more than thirty years since a UK choir took home the top prize from the European radio 'Let the Peoples Sing' competition. This year, after a nationwide contest, Wells Cathedral School Choralia earned the chance to travel to Luxembourg for the 2013 event. Mary King introduces highlights from the Youth and Open categories, and finds out whether Wells managed to fight off rivals from across Europe in the battle for the Silver Rose Bowl.

Plus, composer and arranger Alexander L'Estrange talks about the challenge of reshaping classics from the American songbook for the quintessential English vocal ensemble. The King's Singers have just released their disc of songs from the likes of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and George Gershwin, but can they really hit the mark when it comes the soul of American swing?

SUN 18:15 Sunday Feature (b01msj6v)
A Social History of the Piano

Michael Goldfarb explores the development and enduring appeal of the piano across social and geographic divides from Austrian aristocracy to the aspiring middle classes of China.

The piano has always been more than a mere instrument. It doesn't hide away in a case, because the case is what makes it as much a piece of furniture as an instrument. It can be orchestra, accompanist, soloist and backing band, always maintaining, through the regimented keyboard and pristine mechanism, a sense of precision and decorum.

And as Michael Goldfarb discovers, throughout its development, from its origins in Italy and Austria to its astonishing success in 21st century China, it has been making a mark way beyond the niche world of the professional musician. Michael talks to people who play, work on, fettle and sell these most expensive of instruments and gets a sense of their place in the aspiring societies of 19th-century Europe, 20th-century America and Asia and modern China.

Is there such a figure as a 'piano person?' What keeps the sales of these space-consuming instruments going and what impact has the movement eastwards had on the cultures who have now taken the piano to their heart? Is it really, as many parents would have their offspring believe, the key to intellectual and artistic stimulation in later life? Michael visits piano showrooms, workshops, museums and - with due reverence - a piano knackers yard to come to a greater understanding of an instrument that many thought wouldn't survive the onslaught of modernity.

And all the time he measures the story against his own fondness for an instrument that his Uncle Morty introduced him to and which he still cherishes in his north London home on Piano Road, a place amidst the ghosts of what was once the heart of London's, and therefore the world's, piano making business.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03h3nx0)
Bill Evans (1929-1980)

Bill Evans Works with Miles Davis

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Family was very important to the composer Bill Evans. His earliest musical influences came from his mother, and his most famous work, Waltz for Debbie, was inspired by his niece. Evans won a scholarship to Southeastern Louisiana University, and around the same period he composed his earliest known composition, 'Very Early'. After a brief spell in the army, and by the time he was twenty-six, Evans recorded an album called New Jazz Conceptions, which included his new work, 'No Cover, No Minimum'. Bill Evans was starting to make quite a name for himself, and then came the call from Miles Davis offering Evans the chance of performing alongside the legendary trumpeter and his ensemble.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b03h3nx4)
European Music in the USA

Part 1

Katie Derham presents a week of US Orchestras in European repertoire. Including international soloists Lang Lang, Christian Zacharias and Christine Brewer.

Lorenzo da Ponte, librettist of Don Giovanni and Cosi fan tutte, ran a bookstore in Manhattan and Beethoven's family line ended with his great-nephew who worked for the Michigan Central Railroad Company in Detroit.

Transatlantic musical travel has been going on for centuries, and Afternoon on 3 begins a three-week survey of this "Special relationship". In this first week Afternoon on 3 features USA Orchestras in European repertoire. Next week the direction of travel is reversed with American music performed by BBC Orchestras, and in the third week the programme focuses on composers who sought refuge in the USA in the twentieth century.

This week features the New York Philharmonic, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra - and watch out for the Dallas Wind Symphony.

Each day we feature music by Beethoven, and a performance by a world-class soloist.

MON 19:15 Opera on 3 (b03h3nx8)
Beethoven's Fidelio

Ivan Hewett introduces Beethoven's Fidelio in a new production by Calixto Bieito, recorded last month at the English National Opera in London. The soprano Emma Bell takes on the title role as the brave Leonora who, disguised as young man Fidelio, rescues her unfairly jailed husband Florestan, sung by the tenor Stuart Skelton. The stage at the Coliseum is transformed in this contemporary setting into a big prison of metal and plastic, a truly claustrophobic labyrinth in which all characters are prisoners, one way or another. The orchestra and chorus of the ENO are conducted by Music Director Edward Gardner. And there's a dramatic cameo by the Heath String Quartet too.

Leonora ..... Emma Bell (Soprano)
Florestan ..... Stuart Skelton (Tenor)

MON 22:00 Free Thinking (b03h3p4n)
2013 Festival

Why Are Maps Still So Powerful?

Can a map reveal too much? How do they direct our thinking? From ancient atlases to satnav and Google, maps continue to be a key planning tool.

Rana Mitter hosts a discussion recorded at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage, Gateshead between Vanessa Lawrence CB, head of Ordnance Survey and Professor Jerry Broton. They look at who owns the data? What are they doing with it? Who are they selling it to? Who has peer reviewed the maps?

Professor Jerry Brotton, Professor of Renaissance Studies in the Department of English, Queen Mary, University of London is the author of A History of the World in Twelve Maps and presenter of the BBC Four TV series Maps: Power, Plunder and Possession.

Vanessa Lawrence is advisor to the British government on mapping, surveying and geographic information. She is honorary vice-president of the Geographical Association and visiting Professor at the University of Southampton and Kingston University.

First broadcast in November 2013.

Producer: Neil Trevithick.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03h3p4q)
The Existential Me

Naomi Alderman

'The Existential Me' is a series marking the centenary of the birth of Albert Camus and complementing Radio 3's documentary about him. Five people working in different disciplines write essays about existentialism its impact on their work and their lives.

As well as writing novels and short stories Naomi Alderman is a writer of computer games. The world of computers is, she believes essentially existentialist because nothing exists except through the will of the players, who create themselves. Within the games they exist solely through what they do. Any meaning is created by the players themselves Alderman considers the implications of this, and they way her literary and gaming endeavours influence each other.

She is fascinated, too, by the way that the first and third persons are the dominant voices in writing, but in computer games and cyber space the second person comes to the fore. There is a constant challenge to you. What are you up to? What do you want to do now? This, she reflects, is entirely existential.

Producer: Julian May.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03h3p4s)
The Necks

Jez Nelson presents a gig by The Necks, recorded during their three-day residency at London's Café Oto.

This Sydney-based trio often seems to elicit superlatives: unique according to The Wire, the New York Times has proclaimed them 'the best band in the world' and their distinctive brand of slowly-evolving, minimal groove has won them a cult following - no mean feat for an ensemble built mostly on improvisation.

Together now for 25 years, Chris Abrahams (piano) Lloyd Swanton (bass) and Tony Buck (drums) return once more to Café Oto and to Jazz on 3.

First broadcast 11/11/2013

Presenter: Jez Nelson

Bill Evans (1929-1980)

Bill Evans Records with Cannonball

Bill Evans performs alongside Cannonball Adderley

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Performing alongside Miles Davis had brought Bill Evans to a much wider audience. Evans soon left the band though, and pursued his own career making a new album called Everybody Digs Bill Evans, which included a new work Peace Piece. Towards the end of the 1950s, things were looking good for Evans, although his addiction to heroin was starting to take its toll. He'd agreed to work with Davis again on the album, Kind of Blue, which included a work by Evans called Blue in Green, although Davis claimed it as his own. By the time Evans was thirty, he was well known, popular, and was soon to form his own historic trio including Paul Motian and Scott LaFaro. They gelled together perfectly, and went into studio to record works such as Autumn Leaves, and Evans's Peri's Scope. This pinnacle of perfection for Evans, though, was short-lived; bassist Scott LaFaro died in a traffic accident shortly afterwards.

'The Death of Cleopatra' was composed as the third of Berlioz's failed attempts to win the prestigious composition prize known as the 'Prix de Rome'; 'Benvenuto Cellini' is an opera loosely based on the memoirs of the famous Florentine sculptor, while 'Harold in Italy' - a tone poem for solo viola and orchestra - is a semi-autobiographical work which recounts the adventures of a melancholy dreamer, wandering the Italian countryside and encountering pilgrims, brigands and a beautiful woman.

Followed by music from the younger generation of pianists, recorded earlier this year in concert halls across Europe.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b03h3t81)
The Existential Me

Paul Hart

Paul Hart is a young theatre director who last year directed Jean Paul Sartre's existentialist play 'Huis Clos' in London's West End. In the play three people are locked in a room with each other for eternity. This is damnation, for Hell, famously, is other people.

This year Hart was staff director of 'The Captain of Köpenick' at the National Theatre. In Carl Zuckmayer's play petty criminal Wilhelm Voigt (Antony Sher), released after fifteen years in prison, wanders 1910-Berlin in desperate pursuit of identity papers. When he picks up an abandoned military uniform in a fancy-dress shop he suddenly finds the city ready to obey his every command. But what he craves is official recognition that he exists.

Drawing on his experience of these productions, his other work in the theatre and his life as he establishes himself in his hazardous profession, Paul Hart considers the power and veracity of existentialist ideas.

Producer: Julian May

The Existential Me was first broadcast in November 2013 to mark the centenary of the birth of Albert Camus.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03h3pw7)
Bill Evans (1929-1980)

Bill Evans Chased by Loan Sharks

Donald Macleod explores Bill Evans's life during the early sixties

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Evans was now frequently in and out of studio recordings. Quite simply he needed the money. He'd borrowed money from loan sharks who were now threatening to break his fingers. One of these financially driven projects included his work Interplay, which on top of his usual trio line-up, also included trumpet and guitar. Evans's need for money was partly due to his drugs habit and, at times, Evans found himself making albums he just wasn't happy with. One work he was pleased with was Fudgesicle Built for Four, referring to a popular chocolate ice-cream from the time. There were also some interesting collaborations for Evans during this period, including the saxophonist Stan Getz, the vocalist Monica Zetterlund who Evans had met on tour in Sweden, the orchestral leader and arranger Claus Ogerman, and also a collaboration with himself using multi-track techniques in his number, NYC's No Lark.

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life.

Helen Keane had come into Bill Evans's life as his manager and, later on, also producer. Evans went on to dedicate two works to Keane, including One for Helen, and also Song for Helen. Evan's trio, what with touring and other pressures, was frequently changing in personnel. Soon, the bassist Eddie Gomez had joined the trio and he recorded a number of works with the Evans, including G Waltz, and Comrade Conrad. Evans kept up his collaborations with other musicians during the late nineteen-sixties, including the guitarist Jim Hall, recording a duo performance of Turn Out the Stars. Evans also sometimes invited musicians to expand his trio line-up to a quartet, including flautist Jeremy Steig who performed in Evans's composition, Time Out for Chris. This period was exceptionally busy, with frequent tours abroad and many studio recordings. One album won Evans two Grammy awards which featured his number, Sugar Plum.

Verdi 200: Jerusalem (Acts 1 and 2)

Verdi 200 Opera Matinee: Jerusalem

Verdi's Grand Crusade to Jerusalem via Paris.

Jerusalem is a re-working of Verdi's earlier I Lombardi for the Paris Opera in 1847. A German critic once wrote that a Verdi opera is like a garden run wild, and Jerusalem includes the lot: choruses, battle scenes, intense love, retribution, mistaken identity - everything - demanding a full-scale no-expense-spared production and Verdi ordered that there should be no cuts in any theatre on pain of a thousand-franc fine!

All very well in Paris, but Italian audiences always preferred the original - I Lombardi, and although Jerusalem was moderately successful in Paris it never held its place with the top rank of Verdi's operas. Indeed this recording of 1998 was Jerusalem's first in an uncut version as Verdi had demanded all those years before.

Mahler: Symphony No 7

In his seventh symphony, Gustav Mahler stretched tonality almost to breaking point, yet achieved moments of breathtaking beauty and atmosphere. Cast on the grandest of scales, its five movements chart a journey from mystery to haunted nightmare to eventual ecstasy and resolution.

World famous for his work with the Simon Bolivar Symphony Orchestra and El Sistema, the dynamic young Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel is music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and has recently completed a summer residency at the prestigious Salzburg Festival.

Followed by music from the younger generation of pianists, recorded earlier this year in concert halls across Europe.

Bill Evans (1929-1980)

Bill Evans Leaves the Stage

Bill Evans plays his last gig.

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Evans was starting to look quite ill. He needed to have all his teeth removed, which was done in the UK, between appearances at Ronnie Scotts, as it was cheaper. Another tour took Evans to Japan where he was given a film-star welcome. For that tour he had brought with him new repertoire, including the virtuosic Twelve Tone Tune Two. By the mid seventies, Evans had a son called Evan, later dedicating a work to him called Letter to Evan. Another huge event in his his family circumstances was the news that his brother Harry had committed suicide. Harry never knew that Evans had written a work for him called We Will Meet Again. By the late seventies Evans's health was in decline; he was suffering from hepatitis. Touring was making increasing demands upon Evans, including twenty-one European cities in twenty-four days. By nineteen-eighty, with his face gaunt, and his wrists and fingers bloated, Evans was too exhausted to perform, and a few days later he died.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03h3t87)
The Existential Me

Emmy van Deurzen

In this final essay, psychotherapist Emmy Van Deurzen reflects on how existentialist philosophy has shaped her life and work. She grew up in the Netherlands, but went as a student to France, where she read philosophy and later studied psychotherapy. Her work in the two fields led her to want to follow an existentialist path- to pursue a form of therapy which was rooted in philosophy. She now lives and teaches in England, where she works with clients on using moments of crisis in their lives for positive action.

Producer: Emma Kingsley

The Existential Me was first broadcast in November 2013 to mark the centenary of the birth of Albert Camus.
