Ruth reveals how her musical passions bring together her love of Italy, food, family, and the human voice. Her choices of music include the joyous ode to wine from Don Giovanni; a contemporary opera chosen for her husband, the architect Richard Rogers; a moving piano tribute to her late son; and a Bob Dylan song which recalls the time, growing up in Woodstock, when she turned down his invitation to watch him rehearse.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b01rygqy)
Staying Bright - A Century Of Stainless Steel

Has this been the Stainless Steel Age? The metal has entered the fabric of our lives in the 100 years since it was identified by Harry Brearley, a metallurgist in Sheffield, in 1913.

The poet Simon Armitage travels in this programme to the heart of stainless.

What is it? What was the first stainless steel product? Where would we be without it now: from the spring in an aerosol can to a canister containing high level nuclear waste? A skate, a kitchen sink, a surgeon's scalpel, aircraft landing gear. It's phenomenally useful, versatile, robust, rust resistant.

But ... would you make a wedding ring out of it? Would you still clad a bank in its cold, blingy armour?

Simon visits Sheffield: Outokumpu where stainless is made and Portland Works, where the first ever stainless steel knife blade was forged; Canary Wharf, in London, for its architecture; and the sculptor, Antony Gormley, who is working on a new stainless steel bodyform. With Gormley and other metal lovers, Simon finds out what stainless tells us about our time and about time itself.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03t09y6)
Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev (1856-1915)

Child Prodigy

He was a brilliant pianist, a distinctive composer, a theorist and eminent teacher, and dubbed by Tchaikovsky as the Russian Bach. Donald Macleod, with Dr Anastasia Belina-Johnson, explores the life and music of Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev. Young Taneyev was a child prodigy, and it was Nikolai Rubinstein who recognised that the boy would go on to be an excellent pianist and a great composer.

Taneyev studied under Tchaikovsky at the Moscow Conservatoire and was the first student to graduate from there with the Gold Medal in both performance and composition. As an excellent pianist whose Moscow concerts were seen as significant cultural occasions, he went on to premiere a number of works by Tchaikovsky, and even advised the older composer in matters of composition. Tchaikovsky recommended that Taneyev succeed him as tutor at the Moscow Conservatoire, where he would go on to teach Rachmaninov, Scriabin, Medtner and Gliere. At the age of twenty-nine, Taneyev was appointed as director of the Conservatoire, and went on to save it from financial ruin. Amongst this busy life, Taneyev composed much for orchestra, chamber ensembles and for voices, but left relatively few works for his own instrument, the piano.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03t0bym)
Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev (1856-1915)

Taneyev Succeeds Tchaikovsky

He was a brilliant pianist, a distinctive composer, a theorist and eminent teacher, and dubbed by Tchaikovsky as the Russian Bach. Donald Macleod, with Dr Anastasia Belina-Johnson, explores the life and music of Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev.

Taneyev has unfortunately often been remembered as a dry and academic composer, but many of his works, such as the Scherzo from his String Trio in D major, dispel that view. Taneyev as a youthful graduate from the Moscow Conservatoire, travelled Europe with Nickolai Rubinstein. Once he returned to Russia, he made a plan to study more Mozart and also Wagner, although his Symphony No 2, shows more influences from his former teacher and friend Tchaikovsky.

It was Tchaikovsky who suggested that Taneyev should succeed him as professor of counterpoint at the Moscow Conservatoire in 1878. It was a post he would keep for nearly thirty years, and was regarded as the institutions "finest adornment". He made his debut as a composer with his Cantata for the unveiling of a Pushkin memorial, but it was his next large choral work John of Damascus, which demonstrates Taneyev's interest in early choral counterpoint.

TUE 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03t0ccx)
Music from Ireland

Episode 1

This week's series of Lunchtime Concerts features concerts recorded in Dublin, Belfast and Omagh. The members of the Capuçon Trio performed an all-Fauré programme in Dublin's National Concert Hall last spring. Meanwhile, BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, the Danish Quartet took part in Moving on Music's Tour of Northern Ireland during the autumn. Today a violin sonata by Fauré and a string quartet by Haydn.
The first of Fauré's two violin sonatas, the Sonata in A major, Op. 13, was written in 1875 and 1876. Dedicated to Paul Viardot, the son of the singer Pauline Viardot and brother of the girl to whom Fauré was briefly engaged, it is considered one of his early masterpieces. Youthfulness, elegance and the ease of the melody, for which Fauré became synonymous, are apparent from the beginning. Haydn's F minor string quartet, written in 1771, goes back to the earliest days of the string quartet. Throughout the six quartets that make up Opus 20 Haydn introduces compositional techniques that were to shape and define the genre. The set is renowned for the range and contrast of emotion explored in each quarter. The sorrowful No.5 in F minor is one of the best known and immediately recognisable from its opening elegiac main theme.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03t0byp)
Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev (1856-1915)

Taneyev and Wagner

He was a brilliant pianist, a distinctive composer, a theorist and eminent teacher, and dubbed by Tchaikovsky as the Russian Bach. Donald Macleod, with Dr Anastasia Belina-Johnson, explores the life and music of Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev.

Taneyev had inherited a keen interest in Greek mythology from his father. It is no surprise that his only opera set Aeschylus's tragic trilogy, The Oresteia. Tchaikovsky could not understand why Taneyev would write an opera on such a theme, something he thought was far removed from the everyday Russian person. The opera failed to enter into the permanent repertoire.

Taneyev was now exceptionally busy as a teacher at the Moscow Conservatoire. At the age of twenty-nine, he was invited to become the institution's Director and went on to not only raise academic standards, but save it from financial ruin. Composing had to be fitted into the summer months and his opera took many years to complete. It was Tchaikovsky who secured a performance date for Taneyev's stagework, forcing the composer to complete it. During this period Taneyev did find time to compose some smaller works, such as his present for Tchaikovsky's birthday, a little piece for piano four hands, quoting a number of Tchaikovsky's own works.

WED 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03t0ccz)
Music from Ireland

Episode 2

The second of four Lunchtime Concerts performed by members of Capuçon at the National Concert Hall in
Dublin and BBC Radio 3 New Gereration Artists, the Danish Quartet as part of Moving on Music's touring programme in Northern Ireland.
The Cello Sonata No. 2 in G minor, Op. 117 was written between March and November 1921 and unlike the reflective first cello sonata which was composed during World War 1, this is more contented music. Vincent d'Indy, complimented his fellow composer on his 'mastery of maturity' and also said the sonata was, 'so beautiful!'
This is complimented by Danish Quartet performing the work of fellow Scandinavian, Hans Abrahamsen, the quartet worked with the composer on the performance of this work: the String Quartet No.1 "10 Preludes for String Quartet". The ten short movements contain a full gamut of expression, from almost violent dissonances through to the peaceful resolution of last of the preludes - a Baroque pastiche - which, in the context, is quite a surprise

"He rises and begins to round / he drops the silver chain of sound..." When The Lark Ascending takes wing, so do our spirits. But that's just one side of the genius of Ralph Vaughan Williams. Andrew Manze has a special connection with this most English of composers; tonight he shares the rollicking fun of The Wasps, the timeless passion of the Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis and, to top it all, Job: a blockbuster of a ballet score that may well change the way you think about English music.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03t0byr)
Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev (1856-1915)

Romantic Entanglements

He was a brilliant pianist, a distinctive composer, a theorist and eminent teacher, and dubbed by Tchaikovsky as the Russian Bach. Donald Macleod, with Dr Anastasia Belina-Johnson, explores the life and music of Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev.

Taneyev cut quite a dashing image. On more than one occasion, married women became infatuated with him, including Leo Tolstoy's wife, which caused much jealousy. Taneyev was often invited to the Tolstoy's house, where he'd play piano duets with Leo Tolstoy, and discuss Wagner. Wagner's Ring Cycle had made a great impression upon Taneyev, which can be clearly heard in the Entr'acte from his opera The Oresteia.

Although Taneyev had now given up his position of Director at the Moscow Conservatoire, he still taught there. Numbered amongst his students were Scriabin, Rachmaninov, Lyapunov and Gliere. With his resignation of the Directorship, Taneyev now found more time to compose, including his Symphony No 3 which he dedicated to his friend and fellow composer, Arensky. Taneyev was also turning his attention more and more to chamber music, including his String Quartet No 5.

THU 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03t0cd1)
Music from Ireland

Pavel Haas Quartet

Today's concert begins with two Nocturnes by Fauré performed in the National Concert Hall, Dublin by Michel Dalberto, a member of the Capuçon Trio. The invention of the Nocturne is attributed to the Irishman, John Field and Fauré uses the form to present his profound writing for piano. Dalbeto begins with the bleak and almost despairing, Nocturne No 7 and couples it with the Nocturne No. 6 which is one of Fauré's most loved works, perhaps because of its achingly beautiful opening theme.
BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, the Danish Quartet presented Mendelssohn's String Quartet in A minor at the Strule Arts Centre in Omagh as part of the musician's tour of Northern Ireland presented by Moving on Music. In March 1837, Felix Mendelssohn married Cecile Jeanrenaud in Frankfurt, and during the summer they extended the honeymoon with a stay in Bingen am Rhein, where Felix and Cecile kept a joint diary and so we know that it was during this time that he composed his String Quartet in E Minor, completing it on June 18, 1837.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b03t0ckk)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Lully - Phaeton

Katie Derham presents Lully's Phaëton.

What do you give the Sun King who has everything? Flattery, of course! Jean-Baptiste Lully wasn't Louis XIV's favourite composer for nothing and tried-and-trusted egregious sycophancy is the starting point for his opera 'Phaëton'. You might think that the tale from Ovid (including the inevitable love problems of the gods) with its 'pride comes before a fall' theme was a risky one to put before the king. But rest assured: the composer with the XIV Factor knew the myth's message of 'don't mess with the Sun' would have been lost on no one in the 1683 audience.

Of course, there's more to 'Phaëton' than fulsome puffery and, over three centuries later, the power of some of Lully's greatest music still impresses. The great chaconne that ends Act 2 and the fourth Act's depiction of the Sun's kingdom are just two of many memorable moments brought to life here by one of the leading Lully interpreters of our time, Christophe Rousset who leads a specialist ensemble and cast. Recorded live at the Lausanne Bach Festival. Plus, from 3.30 pm, more from the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.

Adam Tomlinson presents a concert of music by Mozart, Berlioz and Ravel live from Sage Gateshead. Featuring the Royal Northern Sinfonia conducted by Ryan Wigglesworth.

Ryan Wigglesworth: First Book of Inventions
Mozart: Ch'io mi scordi di te - Non temer, amato bene, K505
Mozart: Piano Concerto No.9 in E flat, K271 (Jeunehomme)

c. 8.30 pm Interval:
Adam Tomlinson introduces music by two baroque composers, Gluck and Couperin, who influenced Berlioz and Ravel.

c. 8.50 pm Part 2
Berlioz: Nuits d'été
Ravel: Le Tombeau de Couperin

Sophie Bevan, soprano
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Ryan Wigglesworth, piano & conductor

When Berlioz encountered a set of poems by his friend Théophile Gautier which told of love passionate, unrequited and lost, his reaction was typically intense: he immediately set the songs to music - first for soprano with piano, then with orchestra. In the colour, sensuousness and grace of 'Nuits d'été', Berlioz "sowed the seeds for the entire musical lyricism of the nineteenth century in the French language", according to one musicologist. Ryan Wigglesworth also includes Mozart's Jeunhomme Piano Concerto, Ravel's plangent memorial to lost friends and his own 'Inventions'.

Followed by highlights from last week's RNCM Festival of Brass at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.

Hanif Kureishi

Tonight on Free Thinking, Philip Dodd is in extended conversation with the novelist, screenwriter and dramatist Hanif Kureishi. Since his early success in the 1980s with My Beautiful Laundrette and The Buddha of Suburbia, Kureishi has been the author of many novels and a series of films with the director Roger Michell. His latest novel, The Last Word, the story of an ageing Indian writer and his young biographer, returns to themes which have interested Kureishi since the start of his career - race, sex and desire, class and humour. He discusses with Philip why immigrants are seen as an eternal spectre Britain, changing views of sexuality and the shadow of mortality.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03t0byt)
Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev (1856-1915)

Taneyev Catches a Chill

He was a brilliant pianist, a distinctive composer, a theorist and eminent teacher, and dubbed by Tchaikovsky as the Russian Bach. Donald Macleod, with Dr Anastasia Belina-Johnson, explores the life and music of Sergei Ivanovich Taneyev.

Vasili Safonov was Director of the Moscow Conservatoire at the start of the twentieth century, and he was a man Taneyev just didn't get on with. Taneyev did not agree with Safonov's changes to the curriculum, or his treatment of the revolutionary students in 1905. After nearly thirty years service to the conservatoire, Taneyev resigned. This gave him more opportunity to write music, such as his popular Piano Quintet in G minor.

Chamber music was a preoccupation for Taneyev in his latter years, but he also turned to one last cantata called On the reading of the Psalm. This he eventually completed in the year of his death. One bitterly cold day, Taneyev attended the funeral of one of his students, Scriabin. Taneyev was lightly clad and not wearing a hat, and he subsequently became ill and suffered with a heart attack and died. He didn't get to hear a performance of his final cantata.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03t0cd3)
Music from Ireland

Episode 4

This week's series of Lunchtime Concerts is brought to a close with chamber music by Nielsen and Fauré. BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, the Danish Quartet brought the music of fellow Dane, Carl Nielsen, to the MAC in Belfast.
Nielsen composed his Third Quartet in 1897-8, and in it he breaks away from his reliance on the German romantic tradition and transports the listener to the landscape of his native Denmark. The music is rich in sonority and melodic counterpoint.
For the first time this week, the members of the Capuçon Trio come together to perform Fauré's Piano Trio Op. 20 which was recorded at the National Concert Hall in Dublin last spring.
Fauré composed the Trio when he was well into his 70s, at a time when his hearing in the high and low registers was failing - this is probably why the sound spectrum occupies the mid-range - but the trio written in the final years of a compositional life that linked romanticism to the freedoms of 20th century harmony, is a masterpiece.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03t0crc)
BBC NOW - Mahler's Symphony No 9

Live from St David's Hall, Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Thomas Søndergård and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales play Mahler's Symphony No. 9.

Mahler: Symphony No 9

Thomas Søndergård, conductor

Aware that Beethoven, Schubert and Bruckner had never lived beyond their Ninth symphonies, Mahler approached his own Ninth with trepidation. Opening with the rhythm of an irregular heartbeat from within the orchestra, Mahler's Ninth Symphony embarks on a journey of super-human intensity through to its heart-rending conclusion ninety minutes later.

Followed by highlights from last week's RNCM Festival of Brass at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b03t0d9k)
Joanne Harris, Rosie Dastgir, John Lucas, Allan Chatburn

Ian McMillan's guests are the writers Joanne Harris and Rosie Dastgir, and he'll also be exploring the art of whistling with John Lucas and Allan Chatburn.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03t0dc6)
The Islamic Golden Age

Al Hakim

Radio 3's twenty part essay series on the Islamic Golden Age continues its exploration through this five hundred year period of empire, innovation, religious turmoil, scientific discovery and major advances in philosophical thought. In this evening's essay, we hear about the controversial Egyptian imam-caliph, Al Hakim and his sister Sitt al-Mulk. At worst, al Hakim has a reputation as the "mad" caliph and the destoroyer of the Holy Sepulchre church in Jerusalem. At best - he's a capricious tyrant. Dr. Simonetta Calderini and Dr. Delia Cortese share their forensic academic research into these controversial siblings and the essay is read by Dr. Simonetta Calderini.

Producer: Sarah Taylor.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03t0dfc)
Siba in Session

Lopa Kothari with tracks from across the globe, a studio session with Brazilian artist Siba and part two of 'Commonwealth Connections', featuring musicians from around the Commonwealth.

SESSION: Described as "one of the mavericks of the local music scene", Siba has redefined contemporary Brazilian roots music with his folk orchestra Siba e a Fuloresta. He released his latest album in September, hailed by local critics as one of last year's best, mixing North-Eastern Brazilian rhythms, rock 'n' roll and romantic Brazilian 'brega' music with African influences such as 70s Senegalese guitar music and Congotronics - flavours very much explored in our exclusive studio session.

'Commonwealth Connections' is a new BBC Radio 3 landmark 26-part weekly series leading up to the Commonwealth Games in July, featuring music from each of the 53 member states, reflecting the range of music and culture across the whole organisation.

MUSIC FEATURE: Canada - A Postcard from the Atlantic island of Newfoundland
A lively music session recorded in St. John's, Newfoundland's capital city, featuring legendary button accordionist Frank Maher, singer and collector of folk songs, Jean Hewson, the respected fiddler and academic Christina Smith plus other local musicians including bodhran player Rick West and fiddler Tony O'Brien. We hear how generations of musicians have found inspiration from their landscape, their fishing traditions and island life.

HERITAGE TRACK: Lesotho
Mosito Lehata, 100 and 200 metre sprinter, is the fastest man in Lesotho and is the current holder of the country's record for the 100 metres. Mosito's chosen artist is Lesotho saxophonist Bhudaza with the track "Tjontjobina" from his album "Bo-Mapefane".
