SAT 21:45 The Wire (b03wpdqw)
Country and Irish

Welcome to the Irish Midlands - where sentiment and psychopathy do an old-time waltz, and no-one gets out of the ballroom alive.

Donie 'Jellybelly' Burris's life is in free-fall. When one of his deepest, darkest secrets is revealed and he is betrayed by those closest to him, Donie decides its time for revenge, and revenge the old-fashioned way! Calling in a favour from ordnance expert Rafter Coulson, Donie sets out on a dangerous plan of reprisal, but will everything go as he intends?

As he records his last will and testament, charting the catalogue of events that sent his life spiralling into chaos, it seems Donie's legacy will be nothing short of explosive.

Savagery and sentiment collide in an anarchic story of revenge set in the Irish Midlands from one of the most distinctive voices in Irish literature: Patrick McCabe. Often referred to as the 'king of bog gothic' owing to his characteristic blend of dark horror and humour set in small-town contemporary Ireland, his novels include 'The Butcher Boy', 'The Dead School', 'Breakfast on Pluto', 'Winterwood' and 'Stray Sod City'. Both 'The Butcher Boy' and 'Breakfast on Pluto' were shortlisted for the Booker Prize and both were subsequently made into successful films directed by Neil Jordan. For Radio 3 he has most recently written 'All the Colours of Love' (2008) for Drama on 3.

Starring Stephen Rea and with original music by Gavin Friday.
Produced in Belfast by Heather Larmour.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b037tvrj)
Jocelyn Bell Burnell

The astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell changed the way we see the universe. At the age of only 24, as a Phd student, she discovered a totally new kind of star, a pulsar. Her older male colleagues got the Nobel Prize for the discovery ? her name being unfairly, and in the view of many scientists, outrageously, left off. But many honours have followed, and Jocelyn Bell Burnell is currently Visiting Professor of Astrophysics at Oxford University.

In Private Passions she talks to Michael Berkeley about the sexism she's fought all her life as a woman in science: the jeering and catcalls she encountered in lectures at Glasgow university, and the fight as a young girl to be allowed to study science at all. She reflects on what it was like to be denied the Nobel Prize so unfairly ? and why she doesn't feel bitterness. She evokes the exhilaration of scientific discovery, and talks too about the darker times in her life, when she had a very sick child and her marriage failed. Her musical passions include Haydn, Verdi, Smetana, Sibelius, Rachmaninov and Arvo Pärt.


SUN 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01r9q6w)
Vienna Piano Trio at LSO St Luke's

Episode 3

Vienna Piano Trio at LSO St Luke's.

The Vienna Piano Trio perform at LSO St Luke's as part of their residency their last year, playing two works by composers with strong Viennese connections, as well as Ravel's famous trio.

Haydn dedicated his Piano Trio in C to a talented amateur pianist, Therese Bartolozzi, which may explain the tricky piano part. Beethoven wrote his Allegretto in B flat for the ten-year-old daughter of an acquaintance - dedicating it to his "little friend" as "encouragement in pianoforte playing". Ravel's Trio was written as the clouds of the First World War were gathering over Europe and although composition was at first slow, the outbreak of war in August 1914 spurred on Ravel to finish the work quickly so that he could enlist in the army.

Haydn: Piano Trio in C major, HobXV/27
Beethoven: Allegretto B flat major, WoO 39
Ravel: Piano Trio

Vienna Piano Trio:
Bogdan Božovic (violin)
Matthias Gredler (cello)
Stefan Mendl (piano).

However, the nyckelharpa (or 'keyed fiddle') makes a sound that delights audiences. Clare has delved into the best and most rare recordings of the instrument to cast some light on the nyckelharpa's beautiful and mysterious sound-world.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b03wppty)
The Servant Problem

Adrian Scarborough and Sophie Thompson read prose and poetry on the often uneasy relationship between domestic servants and their employers. From St Zita, patron saint of servants, to Mrs Danvers and Jeeves, the put-upon "odd man", the awkwardly placed governess, and the exhausted servants to the Bennets at Longbourn, it's a story of hard work, a battle of wills, and a striving to make sense of status. Music includes Haydn's "Farewell Symphony", written to make a point to his employer, Richard Strauss's affectionate portrayal of knight and servant in Don Quixote, and Johnny Mercer's party with The Waiter and the Porter and the Upstairs Maid.

Producer: Elizabeth Funning.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03t08mz)
Living with Memory in Rwanda

Zoe Norridge reports from Rwanda as the country prepares for the 20th anniversary of genocide. Over 100 days, beginning in April 1994, up to a million people were massacred in one of the worst atrocities of the 20th century.

Rwanda, a country described as a "tropical Switzerland in the heart of Africa", experienced an extraordinarily vicious genocide as Tutsis were attacked by Hutus - two groups who shared not only the same land but also the same language and similar traditions.

How does a country set about healing such trauma and what has been the role of memory and culture in the reconstruction of Rwanda?

Zoe Norridge visits several of the worst massacre sites in this small land to find out how the killings are marked and how their presence helps shape the public memory of genocide. She reports from unremarkable country hillsides whose names - like Nyarubuye and Murambi - have taken on a terrible resonance.

She talks to survivors about their stories and about how they cope with their memories. She talks to politicians, film makers, writers and to those who have helped provide a lasting memory of genocide in Rwanda. Zoe Norridge explores the role of memory and memorialisation in post genocide Rwanda, a remarkable and tragic story with significance for us all.

First broadcast in March 2014.

Lorca's Rural Trilogy

The House of Bernarda Alba

Federico Garcia Lorca's final play.
Translation by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata

Following the death of her second husband Bernarda Alba, a tyrannical matriarch, rules over her house and daughters, imposing an eight-year period of mourning.

Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 - 1936) is, with Cervantes, the best known figure in Spanish literature. Written in 1936 and completed just a few months before his execution, The House of Bernarda Alba is Lorca's final tragedy

Male chorus singers ..... Les Pratt, Martin Medina, Nathan Jenkins, Andrew Johnston, David Cane, Peter Edge, George Leeming.
Musical direction and original music composition by Conrad Nelson

"There lived Dona Bernarda, a very old widow who kept an inexorable and tyrannical watch over her unmarried daughters. They were prisoners deprived of free will... I saw them pass like shadows, always silent, and always dressed in black. It was a silent and cold hell in the African sun, a tomb for the living under the harsh rule of a dark jailer." - Lorca's description of a childhood memory which inspired the play.

He joined the RSC in 1996, staging the three parts of Henry VI together with Richard III at the Young Vic, as part of the This England: The Histories cycle. He assumed control of the RSC in 2003, burdened with a deficit of £2.8m, with a remit to turn its fortunes around. He ran a year-long Complete Works of Shakespeare Festival and a London season at the Novello Theatre, and in 2007 he launched the long-awaited redevelopment of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b010nttb)
Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach (1714-1788)

The Belligerent Flautist

The Belligerent Flautist

Imagine being JS Bach's son, growing up in a gigantic shadow with a great weight of expectation on your shoulders, and trying to earn a living as a composer. These days, almost inevitably, the career of Carl Philipp Emmanuel, Johann Sebastian's second son - and those of the other Bach children - are almost entirely obscured by the reputation of their father. But CPE Bach is the man of whom Mozart said, "he is the father, we are the children. Those of us who know anything at all learned it from him".

This week, Donald Macleod discovers that there's more to CPE Bach than his famous name. In Monday's programme, CPE finds a job at the court of the famously belligerent Frederick the Great of Prussia. When Frederick wasn't busy annexing parts of Europe, he liked nothing better than to play the flute, so an important part of CPE Bach's duties was to provide pieces for the king to perform, and to accompany him when he did. Music in the programme includes the Concerto for Flute in D minor, and an organ sonata written for Frederick's equally musical sister, Anna Amalia.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03wpqfz)

Live from Wigmore Hall in London, cellist and Radio 3 New Generation Artist cellist Leonard Elschenbroich is joined by pianist Alexei Grynyuk in the cello sonatas by Debussy and Prokofiev, plus Night Music, a newly commissioned work by another current New Generation Artist, Mark Simpson

Born in 1985 in Frankfurt, Leonard Elschenbroich received a scholarship, aged ten, to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School in London. Named as a BBC New Generation Artist in October 2012, he is now attracting interest as one the most charismatic cellists of his generation. His list of impressive achievements also includes the Leonard Bernstein award which he received at the opening concert of the 2009 Schleswig- Holstein Festival, following a performance of the Brahms Double with Anne-Sophie Mutter and conductor, Christoph Eschenbach. He has also appeared already at many of the world's most prestigious concer venues.

Born in 1988 in Liverpool, composer and clarinettist Mark Simpson became the first ever winner of both the BBC Young Musician of the Year and BBC Proms/Guardian Young composer of the Year Competitions in 2006 at the age of 17. The BBC commissioned him to write the opening work for the 2012 Last Night of the Proms and in 2013 the BBC Symphony Orchestra perform his composition 'A mirror-fragment...' at the Barbican. He gives recitals at Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall and the Purcell Room and has premiered works by Simon Holt and Jonathan Harvey. He is currently a fellow on the Jerwood Opera Writing scheme.

Fathers and Sons

"In composition and keyboard playing, I never had any other teacher than my father." It could so easily have gone horribly wrong: one of the greatest musical minds the world has ever known, teaching his musical offspring himself. But Johann Sebastian Bach clearly had very special qualities and seems to have remained on good terms with all of his children. In today's programme, Donald Macleod explores the relationship between CPE Bach and his famous father.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b03ybpf8)
Julian Schnabel, Michael Goldfarb on pianist Alice Herz-Sommer

Artist and film-maker Julian Schnabel talks to Philip Dodd. In 1980 he took part in the Venice Biennale and then became known for creating a series of paintings on broken ceramic plates before turning to directing films including The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, based on Jean-Dominique Bauby's memoir about living with locked-in syndrome following a stroke, Before Night Falls starring Javier Bardem, and a biopic of the painter Basquiat.

The pianist Alice Herz-Sommer, who gave concerts while she was incarcerated in Terezín, was the oldest known holocaust survivor until her death last week at the age of 110. Michael Goldfarb considers her life.

Michael Goldfarb's new book is called Emancipation, How Liberating Europe's Jews from the Ghetto Led to Revolution and Renaissance.

Producer: Natalie Steed.

Michael trained as a director in Moscow, before joining the Sheffield Crucible as an Associate Director, and becoming the founding Artistic Director of the Tron Theatre in Glasgow. He joined the RSC in 1996, staging the three parts of Henry VI together with Richard III at the Young Vic, as part of the This England: The Histories cycle. He assumed control of the RSC in 2003, burdened with a deficit of £2.8m, with a remit to turn its fortunes around. He ran a year-long Complete Works of Shakespeare Festival and a London season at the Novello Theatre, and in 2007 he launched the long-awaited redevelopment of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Michael was knighted in the 2012 Birthday Honours for services to drama.

Ich bin ein Hamburger

Ich bin ein Hamburger

In 1768 CPE Bach left Berlin after 30 years' service at the court of Frederick the Great of Prussia and started a new job in Hamburg, where he took over from his godfather, Telemann, as musical director of the city's five most prominent churches. Life was good - according to one visitor, "Bach has a talkative wife, a rather unattractive but well-mannered daughter, a son who is a lawyer, good wine and good beer". Donald Macleod finds out what life was like for the Bach family in the more commercial atmosphere of Hamburg, the biggest port and trading centre of the German lands.

David Allan Miller (conductor)

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's "Born in the USA" season continues with three pages from American history, in a concert conducted by David Alan Miller. Tsontakis's Let the River be Unbroken, takes a look back at the 1860's American Civil War, using the hymns, folk and slave songs of the common man from the Appalachian Mountains. Tunes are taken from both sides of the Potomac River which represented the line between the northern troops and the Southern Confederacy. The Barber Violin Concerto brings European romanticism back home to the East Coast of the USA. The wonderful tunes are brought to life by the American violinist Sarah Chang. The second half the concert comes full circle when the BBC SSO plays one of the greatest of American Symphonies - Copland's Symphony No 3, which ends with variations on his Fanfare for the Common Man, written at the end of another war, the Second World War, and inspired by a famous speech of 1942 where the Vice President of the United States proclaimed the dawning of the "Century of the Common Man".


THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b03wpv1w)
Flora Thompson Biography, Ruins at Tate Britain, Ravel

As Radio 3 prepares for Ravel Day tomorrow Anne McElvoy talks to the choreographer Richard Alston whose dance piece, 'Shimmer', explored the music of Ravel's 'Sonatine' and 'Miroirs'.

There's a discussion about the ongoing fascination with ruins; whether a picturesque castle ruin glimpsed through the mist or the eerie photographs of an abandoned Detroit. Why do artists, and audiences, continue to seek out images of decay and destruction? Anne talks to the curator of a new exhibition at Tate Britain and the writer, Amanda Hopkinson.

Lark Rise to Candleford has been reinvented by theatre and television, and even Danny Boyle's Olympic opening extravaganza owed a debt to the idea of rural England that Flora Thompson created and recorded in her books. Anne talks to the nature writer Richard Mabey about his latest book 'The Life of Flora Thompson and the creation of Lark Rise to Candleford.'

Producer: Natalie Steed.
