Play and Record

Poet Paul Farley imagines himself a sound-recordist taping the Garden of Eden and recalls the impoverished soundscape of his childhood. Growing on the edge of Liverpool in the 1960s and given a simple cassette recorder for a birthday present he went in search of the sounds of the superbs inspired by the bird song records he borrowed from his local library. He pressed play and record on his Panasonic and eavesdropped on ... What? Not a lot, as it turned out. Instead his imagination went to work: the sound recordist's field notes from the Trojan War, during the Irish Potato Famine, lodged in the trenches of the First World War.... A radio poem with found, remembered and dreamt sounds.

Producer: Tim Dee.

Lewis Wolpert

Lewis Wolpert is a distinguished scientist -and a familiar lanky figure on his bicycle, cycling through the Bloomsbury traffic to University College London where he is Emeritus Professor of Biology.

His scientific research has been into the early development of the embryo, but he's a man with many other interests ? he's written books about depression, and recently a book about getting old ? and he's currently bravely embarking on a book about the biological differences between the brains of men and women.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about the happiness he feels in his eighties, and about his early life, and his decision to leave South Africa where he was brought up to be a 'nice Jewish boy'. His choices are wide-ranging: from Noel Coward and Frank Sinatra to a late Beethoven Quartet and Wagner.

Producer: Elizabeth Burke.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03q59w4)
Albrecht Durer: Printing Press Native

Albrecht Dürer - the artist who depicted the stout Rhinoceros (1515) or the Young Hare (1502) or the Self Portrait in the image of Christ (1500) - was the first truly international artist. No artist before him had been a famous name around Europe in his own lifetime. What brought him that fame was the print: reproducible art sprung from brand new technology. Dürer was someone who we might refer to today as a "printing press native". While Michelangelo was covering the vast ceiling of the Sistine Chapel with a single fresco, Dürer was making numerous small, reproducible prints that he could sell across Europe. He spent years of his life on the road, managing his business and his brand - his famous AD monogram stamped on every sheet.

Recorded in his hometown of Nuremberg, Charlotte finds out why Dürer always returned there, between travels north to the Netherlands or south to Venice. Nuremberg was then a trading hub in the heart of the Holy Roman Empire and humming with printing presses - not long before Dürer was born in 1471, Johannes Gutenberg had built the first printing press in Mainz, a town 70 miles away from Nuremberg. Dürer's skill and prowess with woodcut and engraving would lead him to use the very technology that was creating multiple books for brilliant, beautiful single sheet images.

First broadcast in January 2014

Charlotte Higgins is Chief Arts Writer for the Guardian and author of the recent "Under Another Sky: Journeys in Roman Britain.
Contributors include the artists Antony Gormley and Deanna Petherbridge, Professor in History of Art at Cambridge, Jean Michel Massing, Curator of German Prints at the British Museum, Giulia Bartrum and Durer experts who Charlotte met in Nuremberg.

Rob's guest this week is the television and radio journalist and broadcaster, John Sergeant. John has worked as a war reporter in Vietnam and Israel, and has presented BBC Radio 4 programmes Today and The World at One. From 1992-2000 he served as the BBC's Chief Political Correspondent, and then became the Political Editor of ITN. One of his most memorable moments was when he waited outside the British embassy in Paris for Mrs Thatcher, in the hope of hearing her reaction to the first ballot in the party leadership contest of 1990, only to be pushed aside by her press secretary when Thatcher emerged from the building. For this broadcast, he won the British Press Guild award for the most memorable broadcast of the year. After retirement from political journalism, John's appearances on programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing and Have I Got News for You have made him a sought-after participant in television comedy and satire shows.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03q5b8s)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

From Schoolmaster to Socialite

The teenage composer Schubert begins to make a name for himself in his native Vienna

Donald Macleod explores the fascinating relationship between Franz Schubert's expanding circle of friends in Vienna, and the music he composed sometimes at their behest, and sometimes unbeknownst to them.

As a 16 year old, Schubert was faced with a dilemma: whether or not to stay in full-time education? In the event, he chose to leave academia and train as an assistant schoolmaster. He worked at his father's own establishment, with some 200 boys packed into the family's small apartment. Despite these unpromising conditions, Schubert succeeded in writing numerous works for various combinations, some of them acknowledged masterpieces.
The first piece of Schubert's to be performed in public was a setting of the Mass. His father was so delighted with his son's achievement that he promised to purchase Franz a top-of-the-range fortepiano. This performance was also the likely catalyst for another significat moment in young Schubert's life, a new love affair.

Marriage was evidently out of the question for an impoverished assistant schoolmaster. In any case, Schubert had other social interests. He was introduced to the melancholic poet Mayrhofer, and later to the man to whom many would attribute his moral and physical decline, Franz von Schober. So close did these two friends become that they even called themselves 'Schobert'. This growing circle of intellectual and artistic friends would prove an important influence on Schubert, eventually persuading him to abandon the schoolroom for the then precarious career of freelance composer.

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b03q5bh4)
Ulster Orchestra

Episode 1

Louise Fryer presents this week's Afternoon on 3 of concerts by the Ulster Orchestra - including two concerts live from the Ulster Hall in Belfast, on Tuesday and Thursday (following the Opera Matinee that day, Gretry's William Tell).

Throughout the week there's a British and Russian flavour to the programming.

This afternoon Alexander Melnikov plays Shostakovich's Piano Concerto no. 2 - a light-hearted display written for the composer's son, Maxim - and the young Venezuelan Raphael Payare conducts Stravinsky's Firebird Suite.

The British strand begins with the world premiere performance of Edward Gregson's Horn Concerto played by the Principal Horn of the Ulster Orchestra, Paul Klein. It's the first of two concerto performances given by Paul this week - he plays Mozart on Friday.

Plus three works with a strongly autobiographical quality: Britten's variations on a theme by his teacher Bridge; Mahler's early song-cycle, 'Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen,' setting his own texts; and, to begin, Ravel's dedication to friends lost in World War I, Le tombeau de Couperin.

From the Met

Tchaikovsky - Eugene Onegin

Anna Netrebko and Mariusz Kwiecien star as Tatiana and Onegin in Tchaikovsky's best-loved opera. When Tatiana is introduced to the dashing, unconventional Onegin, she believes that he is the hero of her dreams. But he carelessly rejects her - with tragic consequences. Tchaikovsky's fateful romance, based on the Pushkin play, is one of his most sumptuous scores.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b03q5bqz)
The Book that Changed Me

Alan Johnson on David Copperfield

Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson describes how "David Copperfield" by Charles Dickens mirrored his poor and troubled childhood in West London. After the death of his mother, the discovery of this great novel gave him the hope to build a happy and secure adult life. "I was thirteen years old and had read lots of books but nothing like this complex saga; so moving, so emotionally intertwined. I loved Peggoty, laughed at Micawber, loathed Uriah Heep. And I cried. Tears that never fell for my mother fell for Ham."
Producer: Smita Patel.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03q5br1)
Wadada Leo Smith

Wadada Leo Smith performing pieces from his work Ten Freedom Summers at London's Café Oto.

Ten Freedom Summers is seven hours of music inspired by the Civil Rights Movement. It's less of a suite in the traditional sense, more of a collection of compositions that Smith curates into different groupings according to mood and moment. Rigorously composed, but with plenty of room for free improvisation, pieces like Rosa Parks, Medgar Evers and Emmet Till provide a starkly dramatic signpost to key events and personalities in the struggle; while That Sunday Morning is a moving elegy for the four girls murdered in the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Alabama in 1963.

It's an ambitious work, but one which rewards the listener with passages of extraordinary power and beauty, Smith's trumpet variously evoking the raw energy of the gospel preacher, the cut-glass quality of Miles Davis and the gnomic utterances of Sun Ra.

Smith's Golden Quartet featuring Anthony Davis on piano, John Lindberg on bass and Anthony Brown on drums is accompanied by the Ligeti String Quartet.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Miranda Hinkley.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03q5f8x)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

First Steps as a Freelance

Franz Schubert gains the support of a powerful ally and sponsor for his songs.

In today's episode, Donald recounts Schubert's first, awkward introduction to one of Vienna's most prestigious opera singers of the day, Johann Michael Vogl. Vogl was a man who had evidently grown tired of music and musicians, and whose idea of relaxation was translating classical Greek. Luring Vogl into the Schubert circle was far from easy, but once he was forced into listening to some of the young man's songs he was captivated, later expressing his incredulity that 'such depth and maturity could emanate from the little young man'.

Schubert had abandoned the schoolroom for the precarious life of a freelance composer, and friends such as Vogl would prove crucial for such success as he was to enjoy in his short life. It was a holiday to Steyr in the company of Michael Vogl that would inspire Schubert to compose the Trout Quintet, at the behest of a mining official and amateur cellist. There were other amusements besides the mountain scenery: Schubert noted the presence of eight girls in the house where he lodged, 'nearly all of them pretty'. It was to one of them, Josefine von Koller, that he dedicated a piano sonata in A major.

Schubert's main ambition at this time was to compose a successful opera for the Vienna stage. The results of his labour met with limited success, and Die Zwillingsbruder or the Twin Brothers only staggered on for a few performances, and nearly caused a riot on the first night. As Donald Macleod recounts, one of Mozart's sons was distinctly underwhelmed by the production. Believing Schubert to be a 'beginner' he noted in his diary that 'most people felt farce wasn't Schubert's strongest suit'. In fact, Schubert was anything but a beginner in music, and in private he was pursuing new, and perhaps strange pathways, including the tantalising and dramatic Quartettsatz.

Ulster Orchestra

Episode 2

Live from the Ulster Hall in Belfast, John Toal introduces an Ulster Orchestra concert conducted by the young Spanish conductor Antonio Mendez. We'll hear Beethoven's Overture to Leonore No 2 and the 1884 symphony that marked an important milestone in Dvorák's creative career, Symphony no 7 in D minor. It's the only symphony he composed to commission - for the Royal Philharmonic Society in London.

Following the live concert, Louise Fryer takes up the week's theme of the Ulster Orchestra playing British and Russian music. Today's British work features the Belfast Philharmonic singing Hubert Parry's 'Blest Pair of Sirens', an 1887 setting of 'At a solemn Musick' by John Milton. Most of the thematic material in Lutoslawski's Little Suite comes from the folk melodies of the village Machów in south-east Poland. The afternoon ends with a short all-Russian concert with the Ulster Orchestra's Principal Conductor, JoAnn Falletta, featuring saxophonist Gerard McChrystal playing Glazunov's lyrical Saxophone Concerto. The afternoon ends with an orchestral showpiece from Rimsky-Korsakov.

In his tercentenary year a chance to explore Emanuel Bach's revelatory keyboard music in performances on the clavichord, harpsichord, tangent and fortepianos as well as the modern concert grand piano.

Five years ago, the BBC National Orhestra of Wales moved into a new purpose-built studio in the hearf of Cardiff Bay. Since then, BBC Hoddinott Hall has hosted many concerts, soundtrack sessions and CD recordings. This anniversary concert opens with the work that opened the hall in January 2009, a colourful overture, inspired musically by Berlioz, but based on a story from the Medieval Welsh manuscript, the Mabinogion. As Composer in Association with the orchestra Simon Holt was commissioned for a short work when the hall opened. In the fourth century, St. Vitus miraculously jumped unscathed from a cauldron of boiling lead, whilst suffering at the hands of the Romans. By the middle ages, it had become traditional in Germany to dance at the saint's statue on his feast day to ensure good health for the coming year. In his short work, Simon Holt captures the fury and excitement of the demonical dancers. Cardiff-born soprano Rosemary Joshua returns to her home town to sing Mozart - as she did the week that the hall opened. Mozart's sparkling motet never fails to dazzle audiences.


TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b03q5gdw)

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b03q5gkb)
The Book that Changed Me

Tracey Thorn on The Female Eunuch

Singer Tracey Thorn describes how she as a rebellious teenager she seized on the feminist classic "The Female Eunuch" by Germaine Greer. "It seemed brand new, and it spoke to me of things I'd long thought and felt without ever having words or names for," she says. She explains how the book was a deep influence on the lyrics she wrote for her band Everything but the Girl. But now she is herself a mother, she finds herself questioning Greer's contemptuous dismissal of parenting. "As feminists, I feel we are more forgiving now than Greer was; more inclusive, less dismissive, and perhaps that's because greater freedoms have brought with them greater liberties for us to be so. It's not such a threat now to admit to being happily married and enjoying motherhood when we are not utterly constrained and defined by these roles."
Producer: Smita Patel.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03q5f8z)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

A Man of Two Natures

Franz Schubert pays a heavy price for his sensual pleasures

Schubert was to face many frustrations before he could gain public recognition for his work. His setting of the Erlkönig was rejected by one major publisher, and dismissed as 'trash' by another Herr Schubert to whom it had been sent in error. When the song finally made its way into print it proved to be a best seller.

Although his ambitions to become a success on the opera stage were still faltering, Schubert found that his songs were beginning to open doors in Biedermeier Vienna. He was in demand as a composer of part songs, popular with drinking and glee clubs. Schubert did his best to rescue that genre from its bibulous associations, the same cannot be said of the composer himself. Frequently hungover, there's no doubt Schubert was partying hard, and would pay a high price for his dissipation and debauchery. He was both drinking and smoking heavily, and there's even a suggestion he may have been an occasional user of opium. Some have suggested this is one of the reasons why his Unfinished Symphony would remain only two movements, rather than three or four.

Schubert's friends recalled that he was a man of 'two natures, foreign to each other...the craving for pleasure dragged his soul down to the slough of moral degradation'. He eventually become infected by syphilis and some have heard his Wanderer Fantasy as an expression of his anger at his condition. Where or not that is true, there's no doubt about his anger on finding that the pianistic showpiece was beyond his own technical abilities: 'Let the devil play the stuff!' he once shouted in disgust at his efforts.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

The week's British theme continues as Tasmin Little joins the orchestra for William Walton's Violin Concerto - a tour de force commissioned in 1936 by Jascha Heifetz for the sum of £300! (It was worth a lot more in those days.) The concert begins with Berlioz's Overture, Le roi Lear - based on Shakespeare's play, a recent discovery for the composer whose love of Shakespeare was to be lifelong.

Live from the Barbican Centre, London
Presented by Martin Handley

Gerard Grisey: Mégalithes
Hugues Dufourt: Piano Concerto (UK premiere)

20.10 - Interval: Martin Handley's selection of interval music

Pierre Boulez: Cummings ist der Dichter
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 In A major

BBC Symphony Orchestra
BBC Singers
Nicolas Hodges (piano)
Ilan Volkov (conductor)

Followed at approx 9.30pm by CPE Bach and his keyboard sonatas
In his tercentenary year a chance to explore Emanuel Bach's revelatory keyboard music in performances on the clavichord, harpsichord, tangent and fortepianos as well as the modern concert grand piano.

Beethoven's powerful Seventh Symphony is prefaced by a trio of beguiling modern French works in the first of two concerts in the BBC Symphony Orchestra's season pairing Beethoven with recent French music. The BBC Singers have had great success with Boulez's now-classic work Cummings ist der Dichter, which sets the poetry of EE Cummings for vocal ensemble and chamber orchestra. Conductor Ilan Volkov, known for his high-voltage performances and radical programmes, presents the UK premiere of Hugues Dufourt's piano concerto with Nicolas Hodges as soloist. Dufourt's own world of sonorities reflects that of one of France's greatest 20th century composers, Gérard Grisey. In his monumental early work Mégalithes, 15 brass players scattered around the hall hurl sonic clusters of shimmering dissonance into the auditorium.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b03q5gdy)
Japanese History, Chinese Democracy

Zhang Weiwei, one of China's foremost public intellectuals, tells Rana Mitter why China will not and should not become a democracy and why what he calls The China Model has much to teach democracies themselves.

And as rising tensions between China and Japan continue to dominate headlines in East Asia, we hear from two young journalists, one from each country, about what they learned about each other at school and why mutual suspicion is on the rise in their generation. Mariko Oi and Haining Liu's documentary will be broadcast as part of a season about Freedom which runs on the World Service from January to April.

Finally the author of 'Bending Adversity: Japan and the Art of Survival' David Pilling and historian Naoko Shimazu reflect on Japan's historic ability to re-invent itself and why it needs that skill more than ever at the present time.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b03q5gkd)
The Book that Changed Me

Simon McBurney on And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos

Actor/director Simon McBurney of Theatre de Complicite describes how John Berger's "And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos" plays with ideas of connection, memory, narrative and mortality which are essential to his theatrical work. "Berger digs in the vulnerable earth of human experience, and joins the fragments he uncovers with an eye as sure as an astronomer, a gesture as gentle as a carpenter," McBurney says. This slim work has been a point of reference for his art and his life.
Producer: Smita Patel.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03q5f91)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Song Cycles and Symphonies

Franz Schubert hopes to achieve public acclaim as symphonist.

Schubert's health was in rapid decline. Nevertheless, despite his frequent excesses in the tavern, he continued to produce works of enduring greatness. His first song cycle, Die Schöne Müllerin or the Maid of the Mill was produced at a time when he had all but lost his hair, due to the mercury treatment for his syphilis. As Donald Macleod notes in today's programme, the cycle can be interpreted as a lament for lost innocence.

Schubert appears to have been subject to violent mood-swings, sometimes even pointlessly destroying cups, glasses and plates to deliberately create havoc. Despite his occasional antisocial behaviour, Schubert was by no means an outcast; indeed, as an elected member of the committee of Vienna's prestigious musical society, the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, he was almost in danger of becoming part of the musical establishment. Holidaying in Upper Austria in May 1825, he was astonished to find that his compositions were everywhere, particularly songs and piano duets for the home musician. During this time, Schubert was sketching and working hard to complete his great C-major symphony, his ninth (although the first that he would present for public performance). This was dedicated to the Gesellschaft but its length and difficulty militated against a performance during his lifetime.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

Gretry - Guillaume Tell

Thursday Opera Matinee
André-Modeste Grétry: Guillaume Tell (William Tell)

Louise Fryer introduces a performance recorded in June 2013 at Opéra Royal de Wallonie, Liège, Belgium.

There's a very famous operatic setting of the story of William Tell, by Rossini. But today there's a rare chance to hear the much less well-known comic opera Guillaume Tell by André-Modeste Grétry (1741-1813) - who was born in the city where this production was staged, Liège. It tells the same story of Swiss freedom as Rossini's masterpiece.

A dispute has arisen over how best to show respect to a representative of the Emperor, and - as a lesson - Gessler (the Austiran Governor) has demanded that his hat be displayed prominently in the town square, and that respects should be paid to it by everyone who passes. William Tell defies the ruling and is arrested but is given the chance to save himself from execution if he can demonstrate his ability as the greatest archer in Switzerland by shooting an apple set on the head of his son.

Grétry was hugely popular in his time but music associated with the Parisian opéra-comique form went out of fashion as the more serious German and Italian opera styles became the standard. The première took place shortly after the French Revolution and so the themes of revolt against a repressive regime (in this case, the Habsburgs) struck a chord with the Parisian audience. Grétry finds plenty of opportunity to add colourful interludes and songs, and - as would have been expected, as a standard part of the opéra-comique style - he provides all the key dramatic points with plenty of entertainment and colour.

Children's Laureate Malorie Blackman on how Alice Walker's novel "The Color Purple" legitimised her need to be a writer. She writes how the novel was "about the triumph of the human spirit". Reading it for the first in her early 20s it "blasted open a door which I thought was locked and barred to me. Actually it blasted open a door which I didn't appreciate even existed. A door that could lead to a writing career of my own... this book and its author showed that it was possible for me to not only be an author but to have my own voice."

Rob's guest this week is the television and radio journalist and broadcaster, John Sergeant. John has worked as a war reporter in Vietnam and Israel, and has presented BBC Radio 4 programmes Today and The World at One. From 1992-2000 he served as the BBC's Chief Political Correspondent, and then became the Political Editor of ITN. One of his most memorable moments was when he waited outside the British embassy in Paris for Mrs Thatcher, in the hope of hearing her reaction to the first ballot in the party leadership contest of 1990, only to be pushed aside by her press secretary when Thatcher emerged from the building. For this broadcast, he won the British Press Guild award for the most memorable broadcast of the year. After retirement from political journalism, John's appearances on programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing and Have I Got News for You have made him a sought-after participant in television comedy and satire shows. He is currently filming a new documentary in which he explores Indian railways.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03q5f93)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

The Final Years

Donald Macleod looks at the extraordinary fertility of Schubert's mind during his last two years.

One of Schubert's more remarkable creations is the song-cycle Winterreise or Winter Journey, setting the poems of Wilhelm Müller. It's a composition that astounded Schubert's many friends when they first heard the composer singing through this bleak work in its entirety: "We were quite dumfounded by the gloomy mood of these songs' recalled one friend, Josef von Spaun, 'From then on Schubert was a sick man'.

Tempting as it is to see the cycle as a harbinger of Schubert's doom, it seems that the composer was no less convivial than in earlier, happier times - as Donald recounts, he even went down to his local pub on completing the first half of the cycle! And musically, too, Franz Schubert was eager to pursue new genres, with commercial potential. His Impromptus, for example, contain moments of quicksilver brilliance.

Once again, his friends encouraged Schubert to seek out greater public recognition. Planning a concert at the hall of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, Vienna's prestigious music society, the composer worked hard to complete a varied programme of new works, including a new string quartet and his magnificent Piano Trio in E flat. The concert was well attended, and brought in much needed receipts to swell Schubert's bank balance. But in the papers there was deafening silence. Vienna's critics were more interested in the pyrotechnics of Paganini. Even Schubert himself would blow a great deal of money for a top-price ticket for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the violinist in action.

One key work from this year is the profound piano duet, the Fantasy in F, which Schubert dedicated to Princess Caroline Esterhazy. There is strong evidence that Schubert was in love with her, and that she was something of a muse to his romantic yearnings. It's not clear if the princess either reciprocated, or was even aware of his feelings for her!

Donald concludes this week's look at the life, loves and friendships of Franz Schubert with what is possibly his last completed work, the show-stopping aria written at the request of the opera singer Anna Milder-Hauptmann. This is The Shepherd on the Rock, a work in which the shepherd expresses his hopes for the spring - a spring which the composer would never live to see.

FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b03q5fy2)
Claudio Abbado: the final concerts in Lucerne

Claudio Abbado: the final concerts.
Louise Fryer presents recordings made at the late conductor's final appearances at last summer's Lucerne Festival. Claudio Abbado's work with the Lucerne Festival Orchestra represented the zenith of the great maestro's life in music. Formed ten years ago, and performing a mere handful of concerts a year, the orchestra brought together many leading soloists, chamber musicians and principal players from the world's elite orchestras alongside a hand-picked assembly of young musicans from the many youth projects with which Claudio Abbado has been so intimately involved over the past thirty years. But, even by the Lucerne Festival Orchestra's own exalted standards, these final two concert programmes saw performances which soared to new heights. As one reviewer put it: "Abbado's concerts weren't mere performances of pieces of music, they were searing, transformative existential journeys. That they have come to an end is an unimaginable loss."

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03q5jd8)
BBC NOW and Chorus - Honegger, Rachmaninov, Faure

Live from St David's Hall, Cardiff

Thierry Fischer conducts the BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales in Fauré's Requiem. Pianist Yevgeny Sudbin is the soloist in Rachmaninov's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Honegger: Symphony no. 3 (Liturgique)
Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini

8.30 Interval: more music from Yevgeny Sudbin, and from La Madeleine, Paris - where Fauré's Requiem was first performed.

Fauré: Requiem

Yevgeny Sudbin (piano)
Elin Manahan Thomas (soprano)
Roderick Williams (baritone)
BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales
Aelwyd y Waun Ddyfal
Thierry Fischer (conductor)

Followed at approx 9.40pm by CPE Bach and his keyboard sonatas
In his tercentenary year a chance to explore Emanuel Bach's revelatory keyboard music in performances on the clavichord, harpsichord, tangent and fortepianos as well as the modern concert grand piano.

The BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales are joined by soloists Elin Manahan Thomas and Roderick Williams to perform one of the most cherished choral masterpieces: Fauré's Requiem. The serenity of Fauré's music is contrasted in the first half with the apocalyptic vision of Honegger's 3rd Symphony and Rachmaninov's brilliant tribute to the spirit of the demon fiddler, Paganini.
The orchestra's former Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer brings the music of his Swiss compatriot Arthur Honegger, whose 'Liturgique' symphony was written immediately after the Second World War and, after an aggressive opening movement, culminates in a desire for peace. Russian pianist Yevgeny Sudbin is the soloist in Rachmaninov's reworking of Paganini's most well-known theme.

The Book that Changed Me

Luke Johnson on The Magic of Thinking Big

Serial entrepreneur Luke Johnson celebrates the simple but powerful messages of the self-help classic, "The Magic of Thinking Big" by David J Schwartz." "His book is not great literature," he admits. "Indeed, it is popular psychology at its most obvious." However, Johnson defends its power as "basic but also profound" - and it has influenced his huge success with a series of household name businesses.
Producer: Smita Patel.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03q5jdb)
Celtic Connections 2014

Episode 2

Mary Ann Kennedy live from Glasgow at one of the world's biggest winter music festivals, with special late-night performances from the CCA, the BBC's hub on Sauchiehall Street.

Celtic Connections is held in 20 venues over 18 days with 300 events taking place throughout the whole festival, involving over two thousand musicians from 26 countries. Scots and Irish Celtic music is at the centre of the festival, but it has always embraced the music of the Celtic cultures of the USA, Canada, France and Spain, together with the closely connected cultures of Scandinavia and eastern Europe. In recent years the Festival has also connected with traditions across Africa and Asia. The concerts range from the most traditional to the most experimental, all brought together in the context of one of the world's liveliest folk cultures, with a never-ending stream of young Scottish musicians who are reinventing their own traditions for their own time.

This is the second of two live late-night sessions from Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Arts, each featuring four of the best acts from the Festival. Tonight's line-up includes Breton veterans Barzaz; the Raghu Dixit Project from India; rising star of Scots folk Fiona Hunter; and South Africa's mighty Mahotella Queens.
