SAT 00:00 World on 3 (b03lzqsy)
Abida Parveen in Concert

Lopa Kothari introduces a concert by Pakistani Sufi legend Abida Parveen, part of the Manchester International Festival 2013.

This Bridgewater Hall concert was Abida Parveen's first appearance in the UK for a decade, a much-anticipated event for her many UK devotees. She is regarded as one of the leading singers of Sufi music, a devotional Islamic music which claims to bring its followers to a spiritual ecstasy and a oneness with the Divine. Her appeal also goes far beyond her fans - the critic of the Manchester Evening News wrote of this concert, "As soon as she started singing, Parveen's extraordinary voice transcended language and cultural barriers. Such is the power and strength of this woman's vocal cords you don't need to know about Sufism or understand the languages she sings in to appreciate an amazing gift.".

SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b03lzrsk)
The Practice of Practising

Celebrated pianist Stephen Hough reflects on a life spent practising. Told through a series of intensive rehearsal sessions as he prepares for the first night of the Proms in 2013, Stephen gives an in-depth and frank account of the hard work, self-examination, isolation and forensic scrutiny required to turn a seemingly impossible collection of notes into an effortless and awe inspiring performance.

With contributions from fellow musicians including violinist Nicola Benedetti, mezzo soprano Joyce Di Donato and guitarist Julian Bream, The Practice of Practising also examines the firm but distant approach needed by parents of musical children, how singers push themselves past the emotional brink in rehearsal rather than on stage and what happens to the superstar instrumentalist in retirement, when the need to practice is no longer there.

Producer: Freya Hellier.

Britten 100: The Rape of Lucretia

Britten 100: The Rape of Lucretia from Glyndebourne, with Claudia Huckle in the title role and Kate Valentine and Allan Clayton as the Chorus. Nicolas Collon conducts.

Premiered at Glyndebourne in 1946, Britten's chamber opera is given a new production by Fiona Shaw, described by one critic as "opera at its most nakedly powerful". It is an extraordinary and tightly- focused treatment of a legend which has acquired numerous layers in painting, poetry and drama. Lucretia is raped by the tyrant Tarquinius Superbus, ruler of Rome, and chooses to kill herself rather than live with the shame. The action of the opera is commented on throughout by a Male and Female Chorus who occupy another dimension, at times narrating the story and at times voicing the thoughts of the different characters.

Lucretia.....Claudia Huckle (Mezzo-soprano)
Female Chorus.....Kate Valentine (Soprano)

He also begins a short season of string sextets with Dvorak's A Major work, Opus 18.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03lzsbh)
Hugh Masekela

Hugh Masekela is a jazz legend. Brought up in South Africa during Apartheid, he left the country at 21, and spent the next 30 years in exile, releasing album after album - 43 to date - and performing alongside all the other great musicians of our era: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Who ... He's still making music and touring the world at 74, and Private Passions was lucky enough to catch him on a visit to London.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about his passion for performing, which began when Bishop Trevor Huddleston gave him money to go to buy his first trumpet. Masekela describes vividly the musical culture he grew up in: the townships were awash with music, he says, and there was a competing cacophony of sound. As a child he began piano lessons at four, begging his father to play records before he had the strength to turn the handle of the gramophone. Music took over and he says he's been 'bewitched' ever since. He tells the moving story of how as a teenager he played truant from school and instead spent his days playing with other musicians in recording studios; his father found out and beat him severely, and Hugh ran away from home. But a few weeks later his father visited the studio and heard him play the trumpet. Realising that this was his future, his father forgave him and welcomed him back into the family.

Masekela also talks about his relationship with Nelson Mandela, and how Mandela smuggled a letter out of prison to him, inspiring his anthem (and worldwide hit) 'Bring Him Back Home'. He reveals the disillusionment he feels about South Africa now, and reflects on what would have happened had he stayed there - 'I would have died very young'.

Hugh Masekela's choices include Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, J S Bach, Billie Holliday and Ravel.

First broadcast in December 2013.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03lzsfh)
Anything But Banal - The Fascination of the Villain

With a nod to the Pantomime season, Paul Allen presents 'Anything but Banal - The Fascination of the Villain'. Hannah Arendt coined the phrase 'the banality of evil', but drama, from the Greeks to The Sopranos, suggests it's anything but. Evil is frighteningly attractive and exciting.

Paul Allen explores the allure of evil through the great villains, from Hollywood baddies to Shakespearean antiheroes, with notable British actors, directors and writers from stage and screen.

He learns the art of playing the villain from Rory Kinnear, Iago to Adrian Lester's Othello at the National Theatre this year. Kinnear certainly disagrees with Coleridge's description of Iago as a 'motiveless malignity'. Jonathan Slinger reveals that Macbeth and Richard III, too, have strong reasons for their violent actions. Nina Kristoffersen, explains why, though Medea murders her children, she is not simply a monster.

Maxine Peake describes how she researched for her performance of Myra Hindley, and the impact this had on her. Stephanie Beacham, Sable Colby in Dynasty, and about to give her Wicked Queen in Snow White in Birmingham, relishes the power of playing the baddie who, after all, is always the engine of the narrative.

Paul talks, too, to Antony Sher, Henry Goodman and Timothy West, who have played Richard III, Shylock, Hitler and Stalin.

Richard Eyre, directing 'Stephen Ward', Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical about the Profumo affair, explains how a supposed villain can be the victim of a villainous society and Alan Ayckbourn considers the delight and moral necessity of creating venal characters.

There's insight from Judi Dench, into the mind of Lady Macbeth, and from Ian McKellen, who spoke to Paul Allen when he was playing Richard III in 1990. And in a break from rehearsing the National Theatre's forthcoming production of King Lear, Kate Fleetwood, Anna Maxwell Martin and Sam Troughton consider, Goneril, Regan and Edmund.

Producer: Julian May

First broadcast December 2013.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b01pz96g)
Britten 100: Billy Budd - These Buttons We Wear

The playwright Keith Dewhurst adapts Herman Melville's powerful story of persecution and retribution in the aftermath of the Naval Mutinies at Nore and Spithead in 1797. He also tells the story of the man who wrote it. Herman Melville was a man who himself had more than a passing acquaintance with mutiny. There was a history of it amongst his forebears and his own escapades as a sailor in the South Pacific involved him in a mutiny of his own.

The play stars the late Gerard Murphy, who died in August several months after the recording of this play.

Sounds effects specially recorded off the Cornish coast, this is a story steeped in the naval history of two nations. It is also a touching account of creative aspiration, failed adventuring and a family haunted by misfortune.

Keith Dewhurst is one of our most eminent writers for both stage and screen. As a writer for the stage, he is a master of the epic: one of the major dramatists with Bill Bryden's companies at the Royal Court and the Cottesloe in the seventies and eighties. His plays ranged from the Napoleonic 'Corunna!' to the definitive promenade adaptations of 'Lark Rise' and 'Candleford'. As a writer for both large and small screen, his many credits include The Land Girls, The Man In The Iron Mask, The Three Musketeers, Joe Wilson, The Empty Beach, Juliet Bravo and 'Z- Cars'.

Songs arranged by John Tams.

A Unique production for BBC Radio 3.

His programme evokes the glory days of the instrument, in the mid twentieth century, with a selection of arrangements, original works and lollipops.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03lzwld)
The Sammartini Brothers

The London and Milan Sammartinis

Giuseppe was described as the greatest oboe performer the world had ever known, and Giovanni as the true father of the symphony; Donald Macleod explores the lives and music of the Sammartini brothers. Both Giuseppe and Giovanni Sammartini were born in Milan, but their careers would take them on very different paths. Giuseppe, known as the London Sammartini, emigrated to England where he transformed the playing of the oboe. He also composed many concertos and sonatas that became very popular at the time. Giuseppe's final years were spent working in the household of the Prince of Wales, teaching the royal children music. Giovanni the younger brother, Il Milanese, remained predominantly in Milan employed by numerous churches. His sacred output was significant, but his most important contribution was in the composing of nearly 80 symphonies, ahead of Haydn.

Both Giuseppe and Giovanni Sammartini studied music with their father. Soon the two brothers were performing in an orchestra together, often playing for religious ceremonies such as the internment of the relics of St Gaudenzio. Giuseppe quickly became a skilled oboist, and he composed many works for this instrument including his Concerto in G minor Op 8. Giuseppe's most famous work to have survived the test of time is his Concerto in F for recorder, strings and continuo.

Giovanni became a skilled organist and composed a number of works for this instrument, including his Sonata in C major and Sonata in G major. He pursued a career in music with the church and composed many sacred works during his lifetime including his Magnificat in B flat major. Where Giovanni made his biggest contribution, though, was in the world of the symphony, including two early symphonies in C minor and F major.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03lzwmp)
Wayne Shorter Quartet

Jez Nelson presents the Wayne Shorter Quartet at London's Barbican Centre, plus highlights from Jazz on 3's live recordings in 2013.

80 this year, American composer and saxophonist Wayne Shorter is "probably jazz's greatest living small-group composer and a contender for greatest living improviser", according to the New York Times. After coming to prominence in the late 1950s as part of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, he went on to legendary stints in the 1960s with Miles Davis and Weather Report. Today, Shorter has recorded over 20 albums as a bandleader, won multiple Grammy Awards and many of his compositions have become jazz standards.

His current quartet shows he still at the top of his game. Despite his status as an international jazz legend, Shorter is happy to play in the background when needed, allowing pianist Danilo Perez, bassist John Patitucci and drummer Brian Blade plenty of room to breathe as they re-work his genre-bending compositions, many of which stretch back to the 60s. It's golden era stuff, given a fresh lease of life through the Quartet's deft improvisation.

Also on the programme, some of the best music recorded for Jazz on 3 in 2013, including tracks from sessions by Alexander Hawkins and Hello Skinny, as well as performances by Rudresh Mahanthappa, Laura Jurd and Brass Mask.

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

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03lzyqk)
The Sammartini Brothers

Giuseppe Sammartini Moves to London

Donald Macleod follows Giuseppe Samartini's journey to London

Giuseppe was described as the greatest oboe performer the world had ever known, and Giovanni as the true father of the symphony; Donald Macleod explores the lives and music of the Sammartini brothers.

Giuseppe Sammartini decided to forge his career in England, where he arrived around 1727. His name was made known to the London public by the publication of a set of trio sonatas. Writing trio sonatas would be something Giuseppe did on and off throughout his career. Once in London, Giuseppe soon found himself developing a career as an oboe player. He'd often be required to perform a concerto or solo work between the acts of theatre performances, such as his Concerto in C major.

Giovanni Sammartini had, by the late 1720s and early 1730s, established himself as a composer of sacred works. He also ventured into other fields and, like his older brother, worked in the theatre. Giovanni composed the opera, Memet, which was successful enough to be performed a number of times after its premiere. His reputation was growing and students came to study with Giovanni, such as Gluck. His popularity was also spreading abroad and the famous composer, Vivaldi, was reported to conduct one of Sammartini's symphonies in Amsterdam.

They meet at home in Wavendon, near Milton Keynes, where Dame Cleo and her late husband, John Dankworth, converted a stable block in the grounds in 1969 into the renowned venue The Stables. Jacqui shows Sean the new auditorium, where great musicians from the worlds of jazz and classical music regularly perform; and takes him to the smallest room in the family house, where some of her parents' many awards are modestly hung. Dame Cleo and Jacqui share memories of John as father, husband and fellow-musician. He was a towering figure in British jazz, as saxophonist, band leader and composer. Dame Cleo recalls her friendship with other jazz greats including Ella Fitzgerald, and discusses her own extraordinary singing voice, with its famous 4 octave range, which is still going strong.

The Sammartini Brothers

Giuseppe Sammartini Works for the Prince of Wales

Donald Macleod explores Giuseppe Sammartini's new royal appointment.

Giuseppe was described as the greatest oboe performer the world had ever known, and Giovanni as the true father of the symphony; Donald Macleod explores the lives and music of the Sammartini brothers.

Giuseppe Sammartini had made quite a name for himself in London. As an oboist, he performed in theatre orchestras, in military bands and at pleasure gardens. By 1735, he was a famous both as a performer and teacher, and an advertisement arrived in the newspapers, offering a reward for Giuseppe's lost oboe reeds. It was rumoured that he made his own. Sammartini would also perform on other woodwind instruments and he composed music for these, including his Sonata in D minor for two recorders. Soon, Giuseppe Sammartini had made such an impact in London that he was appointed master of music to the children of the Prince of Wales.

Giovanni Sammartini was also making a significant impression in Italy. He taught future composers such as Gluck, conducted concerts of his own music organised by the Austrian Governor in Milan and, in 1740, auditioned singers and an organist for the Cathedral in Milan. His popularity abroad was also increasing, with regular performances in France and England. The Duke of Cumberland was particularly fond of his trio sonatas.

The Sammartini Brothers

The Death of Giuseppe Sammartini

Donald Macleod traces Giovanni Sammartini's involvement in the new Accademia Philharmonica.

Giuseppe was described as the greatest oboe performer the world had ever known, and Giovanni as the true father of the symphony; Donald Macleod explores the lives and music of the Sammartini brothers.

Giuseppe Sammartini established a new school of oboe playing in England and he composed many works for this instrument. He also composed a number of concertos and sonatas for other woodwind instruments such as his Flute Concerto in C major and his Sonata in F minor for recorder and basso continuo. He was both teacher and an active performer, but he died in 1750, leaving his estate to his brother Giovanni.

By the time of Giuseppe's death, his younger brother Giovanni had made a significant name for himself as a composer. Milan, where he lived, was the leading Italian city for instrumental music and Giovanni made a big impact with his symphonies. Giovanni Sammartini was also very active in other musical ways. Having given up on the world of the theatre and opera, he started to petition the authorities to establish a new orchestra: the Accademia Philharmonica.

Taverner: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas - Sanctus
Gesualdo: Maria, mater gratiae
Taverner: Missa Gloria tibi Trinitas - Agnus dei

Tallis Scholars
Peter Phillips (conductor)

The Tallis Scholars are the choral group who, arguably, have done more than any other in this country to bring the sacred Renaissance masterpieces of the Golden Age back to life. In their 40th anniversary season they performed music by a composer who himself had an anniversary - Carlo Gesualdo, who died 400 years ago, in September 1613. This 16th-century Neapolitan prince, notoriously, murdered his wife and her lover when he caught them in flagrante, and then - the story goes - spent the rest of his life in seclusion, atoning for this act of violence by composing a stream of sacred works whose highly-charged emotional expression shed a light on his own tortured state of mind. Alongside this intense, mannered music, a gloriously radiant setting of the mass by the English Tudor composer John Taverner - founding choirmaster of what is now Christ Church, Oxford, before falling from grace in the wake of his master, Cardinal Wolsey.

First broadcast in August 2013.

I'll tell you what, never again." His comedy tours include Current Puns, Punslinger and more recently, The Joke-amotive. In 2004 he broke the Guinness World Record for the most jokes told in an hour with 499 ? a record he held until May 2005.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03lzyqr)
The Sammartini Brothers

A Helping Hand for Mozart

Donald Macloed explores Giovanni Sammartini's reputation and how the ageing composer offered support to a new generation of musicians.

Giuseppe was described as the greatest oboe performer the world had ever known, and Giovanni as the true father of the symphony; Donald Macleod explores the lives and music of the Sammartini brothers.

Giovanni Sammartini was held in high esteem. C.P.E. Bach was worried that, when his own symphonies were being performed in Milan and Padua, they just wouldn't match the quality of those composed by Sammartini. Charles Burney when touring Italy, heard music by Sammartini and also saw the composer perform. He too was particularly taken upon hearing one of Sammartini's symphonies.

Sammartini had a long association with the church and never stopped composing sacred music, such as his cantata Maria Addolorata. He also offered support to future composers such as the young Mozart. He continued composing in his final years, including his Quintet No 3 in G minor. His death in 1775 was unexpected; his diary was still full with future engagements and activities. Upon the news of his passing, Sammartini received a Papal blessing.

Sir Neville Marriner

Sir Neville Marriner, invites Sean Rafferty into his London family home, site of many Academy of St Martin in the Fields rehearsals, to look back on a lifetime of music and cultural interests.

Sir Neville Marriner's formidable catalogue of recordings form the backbone of many a CD collection. He relives the Academy's most important moments, working with Milos Foreman on the soundtrack to Amadeus and games of table tennis in Hollywood with Jascha Heifetz. Surrounded by the ticking of clocks collected over many years, Sir Neville describes his early days as a violinist with the LSO (which include flour bombing the orchestral tour bus from a WWII plane) his passion for planting trees and how he would be happy never to have to conduct Vivaldi's Four Seasons ever again!

FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03m06t6)
Soothsayers with Cornell Campbell in Session

Sounds from around the world, plus a studio session by a new collective made up of the sweet-voiced Jamaican Cornell Campbell and the London-based Afro-dub collective, Soothsayers. With Lopa Kothari.

The pairing of sweet-voiced Jamaican Cornell Campbell and the London-based reggae and Afro-dub collective, Soothsayers (led by Robin Hopcraft and Idris Rahman), first took shape through a chance meeting between Cornell Campbell and Hopcraft in Kingston Jamaica early in 2011. A session was arranged at Bunny Lee's recording studio in West Kingston and, within days, the collaboration produced the sweet 'I'll Never Leave', a homage to Cornell's island home of St Elizabeth.
Now signed to Strut, the collaboration has recorded a full album in which the collective revisits Cornell's poignant 1970s sufferer's classic 'Jah Jah Me No Born Yah'. Soothsayers also bring their trademark fusion of influences and move Cornell's sound into bold new directions, adding an African groove to the hard-hitting 'Nothing Can Stop Us'.

The album carries forward the legacy of Campbell's recordings over the last half century, from his early work with "Coxsone" Dodd at Studio One to '70s and '80s classics with Joe Gibbs, Bunny "Striker" Lee, King Tubby and Winston "Niney" Observer. For Soothsayers, the album is the culmination of ten years leading the London live scene. Comprising musicians that have played with many top artists including Mulatu Astatke, Jerry Dammers' Spatial AKA Arkestra and Hugh Masekela, the band are known for their collaborations with Johnny Clarke, Maxi Jazz (Faithless), Keziah Jones and more, and form the nucleus of the band that backed the London leg of the 'Fela!' musical during 2011.
