Debating this with Tom are the pianist Peter Donohoe, Hugh Canning, Chief Classical Music Critic of the Sunday Times, the Artistic Director of Welsh National Opera David Pountney, and the Glasgow-based music critic Kate Molleson who writes for the Guardian, the Herald and the Big Issue.

We'll also hear from the artists' agent Andrew Rosner, violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja and the online reviewer and blogger Tim Rutherford-Johnson.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03yqbmk)
Craig Brown at Southbank Centre

Craig Brown has been described by The Sunday Times as "our greatest living satirist". He invented the conservative Spectator columnist Wallace Arnold, and Bel Littlejohn, the long-standing Guardian columnist who many Guardian readers took to be real. Brown is a kind of satirical ventriloquist: impersonating the voices of politicians and celebrities, mocking them week after week in Private Eye and The Daily Mail, mimicking thousands of different voices. This year he celebrates his 25th anniversary of parodying the rich and the famous on Private Eye.

In this edition of Private Passions Craig Brown talks to Michael Berkeley about how he does it ? and why he does it. Does he find the whole world ridiculous? Brown reveals that before embarking on a parody he has to feel the creative germ of irritation, which he then attempts to transform into comedy. Parody, as he reveals, is a delightfully libel-free method of pricking the bubble of self-obsession in celebrity culture.

For Private Passions, Brown reveals the music he finds inspiring, moving and funny. Some of his choices are surprising: gospel songs, for instance, are top of his list. He celebrates the Irish composer John Field, and enjoys both Satie and a plangent lament from Kathleen Ferrier. But he also chooses humorous pieces: Kenneth Williams reading Edward Lear, and Harry Belafonte singing 'There's a Hole in my Bucket'. He talks about living in a musical family; his wife, son and daughter are all gifted musicians, while he can't sing in tune, and has no sense of rhythm at all.

The programme is recorded with an audience at the Radio 3 pop-up studio at Royal Festival Hall, as part of Radio 3's residency at London's Southbank Centre.

Live at Southbank Centre: Composer Profile - Locatelli

Live at Southbank Centre.

Lucie Skeaping explores the life and works of Pietro Antonio Locatelli, who died 250 years ago.

One of the violin giants of the eighteenth century, Locatelli was born in Bergamo in 1695, but by the age of sixteen had moved to Rome, perhaps to study with the famous but ailing Arcangelo Corelli, but more likely with another prominent virtuoso, Giuseppe Valentini. His growing reputation as a violinist soon began to take him further afield, however, and we know of concert appearances during the 1720s in Mantua and Venice (both places in which he might have met Vivaldi), as well Munich, Kassel, Dresden, Frankfurt and Berlin. His playing was noted particularly for its power and brilliance; 'He plays with so much Fury upon his Fiddle, that in my humble opinion, he must wear out some Dozens of them in a year', wrote one English observer, and indeed his most famous concertos, the Op. 3 set entitled L'Arte del Violino, show a fearsome difficulty that has led to latter-day comparisons with Paganini. In 1729 Locatelli moved to Amsterdam, where he stayed for the rest of his life, making a living as an 'Italiaansch musiekmeester', publishing his own music, giving private concerts, teaching, and selling imported Italian violin strings.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03yqhsx)
Music and the Jews

It Ain't Necessarily So

Norman Lebrecht presents the last of three programmes examining the complex relationship between music and Jewish identity.

Spanning thousands of years, from King David and the creation of the Psalms, to composers writing today including Steve Reich and Robert Saxton, Norman uncovers a wealth of fascinating stories about the role music has played at some of the key points in Jewish history.

Taking as his starting point the moment at which the Jews were finally able to enter the Western classical music tradition in a professional capacity, in today's programme Norman investigates the idea of a "Jewish thumbprint" in the music of Mendelssohn and others. Leading Israeli composer Noam Sheriff and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas talk about why Mahler's Jewishness speaks so strongly to them through his symphonies, and Michael Grade explains how the Jewish art of being one step ahead impacted so strongly on the entertainment industry in the twentieth century.

With contributions from the musicologist and founder of the Boston Camerata, Joel Cohen, the writer David Conway, the composers Robert Saxton, Gideon Lewensohn and Noam Sheriff, Professor Susan Wollenberg of Oxford University, the conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and former Chairman of the BBC, Michael Grade.

Producer Emma Bloxham.

It's 1958. Beatie Bryant has been to London and fallen in love with Ronnie, a young socialist. As she anxiously awaits his arrival to meet her family at their Norfolk farm her head is swimming with new ideas. Ideas of a bolder, freer world, which promise to clash with their rural way of life.

When it was first performed in the late 1950s, as part of Arnold Wesker's trilogy of plays, Roots and its writer were heralded as part of a new wave of social realistic drama which put authentic working class voices on stage.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kjvkc)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman's Early Life

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

Michael Nyman's music is instantly recognisable, frequently using repetitive piano chords, distinctive instrumental combinations often including saxophones, and yet there is a familiarity in much of the music, sometimes with a hint of Mozart or Purcell. Nyman rocketed to fame in 1992 with his score for the film The Piano. The soundtrack went on to sell over 3 million copies, and won Nyman an Ivor Novello award. Prior to this there had already been many successes, including his collaboration with Peter Greenaway on films such as The Draughtsman's Contract (1982), and The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989), or music for the stage such as Nyman's opera, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat (1986).

Yet despite these accolades, including BBC commissions, the Michael Nyman Band performing at the BBC Proms and all over the world, and other awards for the composer, Nyman remains a controversial figure. Considered by some as a musical archaeologist, Nyman's use, quotation and transformation of the music of other composers, has often led to harsh criticism. Donald Macleod in exclusive interview with the composer, looks at the life and music of Michael Nyman, including more recent artistic activities as a photographer and film maker.

Michael Nyman's early life is a fascinating account of a boy, travelling around London, collecting things such as bus tickets, matchboxes and lolly wrappers. This Nyman of the past comes to life in the composer's opera, Man and Boy: Dada, as Nyman himself explains in conversation with Donald Macleod.

Music didn't play an important part in Nyman's formative years, until he met Leslie Winters at the Sir George Monoux Grammar School, who encouraged Nyman to explore music including playing the piano. Nyman frequently performs at the piano, directing the Michael Nyman Band. Music from the film Wonderland offers the opportunity of hearing Nyman performing solo at the piano.

Nyman went on to study music at the Royal Academy of Music, and then King's College, London. It was 1964 when Nyman went to Wardour Castle, and through his experiences there of serialism, he became disillusioned as a composer, and subsequently was silent for a decade; although he found other outlets as a musicologist and music critic. By the late 70s, Nyman was composing again, including his music for four or more pianos, 1-100.

Live at Southbank Centre: Thomas Trotter - Bach, Schuman, Weir, Mozart, Reubke

Live from Royal Festival Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

Continuing Radio 3's month-long South Bank Centre residency, and celebrating the re-opening of the restored Royal Festival Hall organ, Thomas Trotter plays a selection of music from Bach to today.

Johann Sebastian Bach: Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C (BWV 564)
Robert Schumann: Three Studies: No.3 in E; No.4 in A flat; No.5 in B minor (Studies for Pedal Piano, Op.56)
Judith Weir: The Wild Reeds (London premiere)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Fantasie in F minor K608

8.20 Interval

8.40
Julius Reubke: Sonata in C minor on Psalm 94

Thomas Trotter (organ)

When first opened in 1953 the organ of the Royal Festival Hall, 8000-pipes strong, was revolutionary for attempting to accommodate in a single instrument the timbres and sonorities for every period of the organ repertoire - from the Renaissance to the present day. Tonight the English organ virtuoso Thomas Trotter shows off the RFH organ in 300 years of organ literature. His programme ranges from one of Bach's masterworks for the instrument to a recent piece by Scottish composer Judith Weir. En route, he plays the Fantasia in F minor by a composer who was an enthusiast for the organ and christened it 'The King of Instruments': Mozart; three studies by Schumann; and - to conclude - one of the 19th century's mightiest works for the instrument: Julius Reubke's Sonata - acknowledged since its premiere in 1857 as a virtuoso pinnacle of the organ repertoire.

MON 22:00 The John Tusa Interview (b007fm09)
Richard Hamilton who died in 2011, is usually seen as the father of pop art, a movement which in the sixties took images from mass media as it source material. But Hamilton's work also looks back to the old masters and to two great 20th century figures, Joyce and Duchamp. As his work is celebrated in a major restrospective at Tate Modern, this is another chance to hear an interview with John Tusa about the variety of Hamilton's output originally broadcast in 2002.
Producer Tony Cheevers.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03yqkvq)
Finish the Bottle

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Art historian Martin Gayford is a veteran interviewer. He tells the stories of five encounters he's had with world renowned artists - probing them, drinking a glass or two and trying to understand what made them tick.
Henri Cartier Bresson's reputation as a photographer was matched by his famously prickly nature. Martin recalls a disconcerting visit to the great man in his apartment in Paris. After a very bumpy start, the 93-year-old Cartier Bresson revealed some of the founding ideas of his art - especially the notion of the 'decisive moment' that allowed his photographs to be both completely informal yet beautifully composed. Gayford learns about photography but also how to be a better interviewer.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03yqkvs)
Paul Dunmall's Realisation Trio, Sonsale

This week Jazz on 3 features concerts from British saxophonist Paul Dunmall and his Realisation Trio, plus Anglo-French group Sonsale.

From blues sideman to spiritual improviser, Paul Dunmall's career has covered vast and varied ground, and it's his love of both swing and free-music playing that comes to the fore in this performance. Captured during an evening celebrating his 60th birthday last year, his playing remains bold and uncompromising and is matched by two young Birmingham players, Nick Jurd on double bass and Jim Bashford on drums.

Improvising spirit from both sides of the Channel is brought together in Sonsale. The ethereal vibraphone of Corey Mwamba opens a dreamlike world where bandmates Andy Champion and Valentin Ceccaldi add earthy tones on bass and cello. Percussionist Sylvain Darrifourcq (who also featured on Jazz on 3 last year in another Anglo-French group, Barbacana) frames the improvisations with some brilliant atmospheric playing, from which fleeting themes emerge.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhs)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman's Early Collaborations

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

By 1977, Nyman composed In Re Don Giovanni, which has been hailed as his first 'original' work. As a youth when Nyman's contemporaries were listening to pop music, Nyman was listening to Mozart. The Catalogue Song in Mozart's opera Don Giovanni stayed in Nyman's memory, and in In Re Don Giovanni it receives a truly Nymanesque treatment, subjected to rock 'n' roll, minimalism, and that emerging Nyman sound world.

During the 70s and 80s, there were a number of important collaborations for Nyman, including touring with Steve Reich in the UK. Another important collaborator was Peter Greenaway, and this relationship led to a number of significant and successful films, including The Draughtsman's Contract (1982).

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment explores turning points in the history of classical music with a concert featuring the baroque concerto grosso. It includes three of Bach's masterpieces, his Double Violin Concerto and Brandenburg Concertos Nos.3 and 6. The programme opens with one of Corelli's pioneering concertos and it also includes a real rarity: a concerto for the now 'extinct' violoncello da spalla (essentially a cello played under one's chin), an instrument only recently reconstructed and receiving its first modern outing here in London today.
The performer of this unusual instrument and director for this concert is a pioneer in his own right, Sigiswald Kuijken, who directed the orchestra's very first concert 27 years ago.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b03yqt07)
Landmark: Seven Samurai

Akira Kurosawa's 1954 film Seven Samurai traces the story of a group of Samurai who are hired to prevent thieves stealing the crops from a farming village in 1587 during the Warring States period of Japanese history. It inspired the Western The Magnificent Seven and regularly appears on polls of the greatest films of world cinema.

Matthew Sweet is joined for a discussion of this Landmark of culture by Professor Ian Christie, critic Larushka Ivan Zadeh, writer SF Said and Dr Alexander Jacoby, author of A Critical Handbook of Japanese Film Directors.

Producer: Zahid Warley

First broadcast 25/03/2014.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b03yqt2m)
Finish the Bottle

Marina Abramovic

Marina Abramovic is the 'grandmother of performance art'. Her work, which has brought her world-wide fame, has included lacerating her body, starving herself, living entirely in public in a gallery for 12 days and exchanging places for an afternoon with an Amsterdam prostitute.
To Martin Gayford, the art historian, performance art was a mystery. But his meeting with the surprisingly cheerful Abramovic in Venice upsets some of his prejudices and gives him an insight into the rigour and the almost spiritual discipline of the artist's work.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhv)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman the Music Archaeologist

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

Michael Nyman explores with Donald Macleod, his interest in music recycling. Many of Nyman's works take existing material by other composers, or previous works by Nyman himself, to create something new. One example of this is Memorial, used in the film The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989), but linked to previous projects.

Nyman has also been keen to explore other cultures and their musical heritage for inspiration and potential collaborations. Nyman's second String Quartet (1988) uses rhythmic templates from the South Indian Bharata Natyam dance tradition, to create a work which links East and West, and was originally intended for solo dance performance. The programme ends with another exploration of another culture, in The Upside-Down Violin (1992).

The beginning of the 90s sees Nyman's first concerto. Where the Bee Dances (1991) is a concerto for saxophone, and recycles material composed for the film Prospero's Books, which never came to full fruition, marking the end of the Greenaway and Nyman collaboration.

Poulenc, Berlioz and Saint-Saëns: An Organ Celebration at Southbank Centre's Pull Out All The Stops festival.

Francis Poulenc: Concerto in G minor for organ, strings and timpani
Hector Berlioz: Les nuits d'été

Camille Saint-Saëns: Symphony No.3 in C minor (Organ)

London Philharmonic Orchestra
Sarah Connolly, mezzo-soprano
James O'Donnell, organ
Yannick Nézet-Séguin, conductor

It has taken eight years to refurbish the grand organ of Royal Festival Hall, and the instrument resounds anew in this concert of French music including two of the most popular pieces for organ and orchestra.
Poulenc's Organ Concerto is a gregarious romp that spins off the music of the greatest organist who ever lived, Johann Sebastian Bach. The Organ Symphony by Saint-Saëns is justly famous for its awe-inspiring majesty and brilliance, worlds apart from the delicate, luminous nocturnal songs by Berlioz that separate the two.

Finish the Bottle

Robert Rauschenberg

A turtle in the elevator, a television on the cooker - there was plenty to disconcert the critic Martin Gayford when he paid a visit to the artist Robert Rauschenberg in his New York loft.
Rauschenberg was a 20th century master - an artist whose paintings, 'combines' and graphic work anticipated pop art and many other genres, years before they became universally fashionable.
Gayford discovers a man wedded to the idea of surprise and to trying to reflect the the deluge of imagery which characterises our world.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhx)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman and The Piano

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

In 1992, Michael Nyman's score for the film The Piano, was a huge success. The soundtrack went on to sell over 3 million copies, and won Nyman an Ivor Novello Award. Despite this great achievement, Nyman has felt that this has in some way colored people's perception of him when composing away from film. Further film successes have followed, including the soundtrack to the science fiction film, Gattaca (1997).

The 90s have seen for Nyman a number of significant works away from film, including concertos for harpsichord, saxophone and cello, and also a concerto for Trombone and Orchestra (1995). This piece is a dramatic work, and unlike many of Nyman's scores, is based entirely on original material.

Nyman has previously said when talking about his film music, that visual materials have never inspired him to compose. Exclusively in interview with Donald Macleod, Nyman discusses his process for writing music for another visual medium, opera, specifically his work Facing Goya (2000).

THU 22:45 The Essay (b03yqt2r)
Finish the Bottle

Patrick Heron

Martin Gayford spent a week watching the artist Patrick Heron preparing breakfast in the kitchen of his house - Eagle's Nest - overlooking the Cornish coast.
Heron was a celebrated member of the St Ives School and he relished living amid the boulder-strewn fields in the specially luminous light of Cornwall.

During a week of conversations Gayford begins to realise the depth of Heron's rootedness in the Cornish landscape and, for all the apparently militant modernism of the paintings - how the work was directly informed by the beauty of the place.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01kkmhz)
Michael Nyman (1944-present)

Nyman: Composer, Photographer and Filmmaker

One of the most popular and yet controversial composers of our time, Michael Nyman exclusively in conversation with Donald Macleod.

In recent years, Michael Nyman has had to juggle a very busy schedule performing in, and directing the Michael Nyman Band, composing, and other recent activities as both a photographer and filmmaker. Nyman in exclusive interview with Donald Macleod, discusses his recent career.

Collaboration remains an important part of Nyman's career as a composer. This has included working with the vocalist and song writer David McAlmont, recycling a number of older works by Nyman, and turning them into new songs. These works, such as 'Secrets, Accusations and Charges', or 'City of Turin', focus upon contemporary issues, sometimes sensitive, and sometimes poignant.

The final work, Three ways of describing rain (2000), is another example of Nyman collaborating across cultures. East meets West, and Nyman has described this as a "coming together" with Indian classical music cultures. It is a re-release, hot off the press, and Nyman explores this work with Donald Macleod.

Live from the Royal Festival Hall

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Nézet-Séguin conducts the LPO in Mendelssohn's First Piano Concerto (with Nicholas Angelich) and Mahler's Ninth Symphony.

Felix Mendelssohn: Piano Concerto No.1 in G minor, Op.25

8.10: Interval

Gustav Mahler: Symphony No.9

In 1907, ill and exhausted, Mahler faced spiritual and physical annihilation. He countered it by throwing himself into life with renewed passion. Nevertheless, his last completed symphony, the Ninth, would be a desperate farewell. In the words of his biographer Deryck Cooke, it represented 'a 'naked encounter with the arch-enemy himself, who invades the music, turning everything to dust and ashes'. That arch-enemy was death. Four movements, a new orchestral language and an emboldened emotional extremism: the ultimate Mahler symphony.

Finish the Bottle

Euan Uglow

What did the critic Martin Gayford make of an artist who confessed not to be able to finish a picture? One whose sitters were obliged to commit to several years of posing? Of a painter struggling to bend the naked body of a girl into the shape of the pyramids of Giza?
Euan Uglow was an uncompromising and difficult artist.

Martin recalls touring the painter's rambling London House-cum-studio on a boozy evening and learning more about the artist for whom precision and perfection were the driving forces.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03yqt4k)
Live at Southbank Centre: Fay Hield and the Hurricane Party, Commonwealth Connections 8

Live at Southbank Centre: Commonwealth Connections 8 plus a session with Fay Hield and The Hurricane Party, presented by Lopa Kothari.

'Commonwealth Connections' is a 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 from St Lucia
St Lucia's leading traditional folk band Man May La Kay keep alive the traditional Kwadril music. Drawn originally from the French courtly Quadrille, this is a curious mix of African and European dance styles introduced by the European plantation owners of an earlier era. Once a reminder of their colonial past, the Kwadril has become a national symbol of the people of St Lucia and this joyful music is the definitive Caribbean ceilidh.

Heritage Track from Brunei:
The Loneliness of the Short Distance Runner: 400m sprinter Maziah Mahusin was the only female athlete representing her country at the London Olympics 2012; carrying the Bruneian flag at the Opening Ceremony is one of her proudest moments. Since then she has inspired many young girls to run; these days they turn up in crowds at her training sessions to run alongside her. Maziah chooses a track that reminds her of playing with her siblings as a child, Sebarkan ke Seantero dunia by Putri Norizah. She reflects on how far she's come in her career- and on what it's going to take to live up to the responsibility she now feels to keep training hard and make Bruneians yet more proud of her.

Session with Fay Hield and The Hurricane Party:
