SAT 17:50 Opera on 3 (b03z9hjt)
Strauss: Die Frau ohne Schatten

Richard Strauss's opera Die Frau ohne Schatten (The Woman without a Shadow) live from London's Royal Opera House, conducted by Semyon Bychkov in a new production by Claus Guth, starring Johan Botha, Emily Magee, Michaela Schuster, Johan Reuter and Elena Pankratova.

Presented by Donald Macleod with guest, Strauss expert William Mival. Including interviews with the conductor, director and singers.

On the surface, the opera is a fairy tale about two contrasting couples and how love can only be truly fulfilled and meaningful through the birth of children. This narrow world view has possibly been the reason why some people have found the story uncongenial. For a long time is was one of the less performed of Strauss's works. However in recent productions the complex web of symbols at work in the piece have been deconstructed to reveal layers of meaning about the nature of love and human psychology.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03z9hsl)
Theo Fennell

There's a huge revival in British craftsmanship going on at the moment, with a new generation keen to learn how to make beautiful things. For 40 years now, Theo Fennell has been one of the country's most distinctive and witty jewellers. His intricate and beautifully crafted designs take you into a strange dream-world: miniature skulls with jewelled snakes twisting from their eyes; bees cast in gold; dragonflies trailing amethysts; salamanders studded with diamonds. Perhaps not surprising that his jewellery has decorated rock stars such as Elton John, Lady Gaga and Freddie Mercury.

In Private Passions, Theo Fennell reveals the music that inspires him when he's working - dreaming up those strange and beautiful new creatures. Music is what helps him, he says, when confronted by a blank sheet of paper. He also reveals that as a young art student he worked as a busker, and even bought a one-man band. He discusses the erotic power of jewellery, with a vivid story from his own experience. And during the recording, he sketches continuously, and has agreed to put some of his drawings on the Private Passions webpage.

Theo Fennell's choices include Dvorak's Cello Concerto, Offenbach's opera 'The Tales of Hoffmann', Yehudi Menuhin playing Saint-Saëns's Violin Concerto No. 3 in B minor, and a Charles Trenet song from 1937. And his great patron, Elton John.

A Loftus production produced by Elizabeth Burke.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b03z9jr4)
Billy - The Other Lloyd Webber

William Lloyd Webber, OBE, was a virtuoso organist, gifted teacher and accomplished administrator. But above all else he wanted to be a composer, and at the end of his life he was to rue missed opportunities at the same time as he saw his two sons - composer Andrew and 'cellist Julian - fulfil their own musical dreams.

In this programme marking the centenary of William Lloyd Webber's birth, writer and broadcaster Andrew Green explores why the dream shattered - but also re-examines the passionate, romantic music Lloyd Webber left behind.

William Lloyd Webber was a working-class boy who made good, fired by the musical enthusiasms of his father - William Sr was a plumber with a love of the organ. William Jr was a nationally known organist by his early teens. The Royal College of Music snapped him up as a teacher of music theory as soon as his student years ended. But in 1948 he was to give up one of London's most prestigious organist posts, at All Saints, Margaret Street, to concentrate on composing.

Not much more than ten years later, the ambition was in tatters. Lloyd Webber wrote plenty of music, but his shy, over-sensitive nature meant he so feared critics would ridicule his romantic style that he all but abandoned composing.

With the help of such contributors as Andrew and Julian Lloyd Webber, Sir Tim Rice and pianist John Lill, Andrew Green unravels a complex character whose story is a mirror to fashions in 20th-century music. That story was cruelly cut short in 1982 just as William Lloyd Webber was re-discovering his voice, inspired by a late love.

Lloyd Webber's music perfectly illustrates his story, from the introverted Fantasy Trio to the abandoned orchestral tone poem, Aurora; from brilliant organ works to songs brimming over with romantic ardour.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03z9jr6)
LSO and Chorus - Scriabin, Liszt

Valery Gergiev conducts the LSO in Scriabin and Liszt, with pianist Denis Matsuev

Live from the Barbican in London
Presented by Ian Skelly

Part One
Scriabin: Symphony No 1

8.30 Interval

8.50 Part Two

Scriabin: 'The Poem of Ecstasy'

Denis Matsuev, piano
London Symphony Chorus,
London Symphony Orchestra,
Valery Gergiev conductor

Valery Gergiev launches a cycle of Scriabin's symphonies with the LSO. The first symphony, completed in 1900 is an epic piece for huge orchestra and voices in praise of Art. His 'Poem of Ecstasy' is sometimes called his fourth symphony, and sums up his conviction of the value of an ecstatic response to music.

Denis Matsuev won the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition. He performs here the second of Liszt's two piano concertos; less flashy than its predecessor but arguably deeper and more compelling.

In the interval, there is chance to hear Denis Matsuev recorded live in New York's Carnegie Hall.


SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b03z9jr8)
The Boy at the Back

By Juan Mayorga.

A psychological drama from one of Spain's most renowned contemporary writers, which recently won a BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Use of Sound.

When 17-year-old Claudio insinuates himself into a classmate's house and begins to write about it as homework, his literary voyeurism soon spirals out of control. Faced with this gifted and unusual pupil, class teacher German is reminded of his own abandoned literary pretensions. Despite his wife's misgivings, he encourages Claudio's artistic ambitions. However, the boy's incursion into the domestic intimacy of his subjects will have unpredictable consequences for both households.

An exploration of the voyeuristic nature of fiction, the exercise of power and the ambiguity at the heart of human relations.

Juan Mayorga's work has been translated into over 25 languages and performed all around the world. He has won numerous prizes including the Spanish National Theatre Award and the Valle-Inclan Prize, and is a five-time winner of a "Max" (Spanish equivalent of an Olivier Award).

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03z9jxf)
Pietro Locatelli (1695-1764)

The 18th-Century Paganini

The Italian Baroque composer and violinist Pietro Locatelli, whose astonishing technique astounded his listeners is little known today. Yet in his time Locatelli became famous for his innovative and virtuosic playing which informed his music and challenged the musical world's view of the violin's capabilities. His most significant collection of works, published under the title 'L'arte del violino', contains some of the most fiendishly difficult violin music in the repertoire. Donald Macleod introduces a concerto from that collection plus one of Locatelli's earlier concerti grossi and a charming chamber work, perhaps written with the gentleman amateur in mind.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b03z9jxh)

Why on earth would you pick up your french horn after a 25-year hiatus and decide to perform a Mozart concerto in front of the scariest of audiences - a room full of other horn players? Lapsed horn enthusiasts Jasper Rees and Jonathan Guy Lewis will be here to tell us, and Jonathan will perform a section from their play, "I Found My Horn", plus a bit of the aforementioned Mozart concerto.

And throughout the week we'll be catching up with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and violinist Nicola Benedetti on their India tour - a Commonwealth Games 2014 cultural and educational collaboration between The BBC, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and the British Council.

York Festival of Ideas - Wars of the Roses

Rana Mitter chairs a debate from the 2013 York Festival of Ideas on the legacy of the War of the Roses with historians Sandy Grant and Mark Ormrod and author Helen Castor reflecting on how the Wars of the Roses shaped the country from the 15th century right up to the present day.

In the year that Richard III's remains were identified beneath a Leicester Car Park, why does the Wars of the Roses continue to exert such a hold over our imaginations, from Game of Thrones to the BBC series The White Queen?

Kris Davis Trio

Vancouver born, Brooklyn-based pianist Kris Davis performs with her trio, in her first ever UK concert.

Imagine an amalgam of Cecil Taylor, Matthew Shipp and Morton Feldman and you're beginning to get a picture of Kris Davis - one of the most exciting and free-thinking pianists to emerge from the New York scene in recent years. From avant notions and frantic prepared piano through to thoughtful melody and time, Davis brings together a whole range of techniques and influences under the umbrella of her own unique sound. At points her sense of urgency and propulsion can be nothing short of jaw-dropping and she is joined by New York stalwarts, bassist John Hébert and drummer Tom Rainey, for the creative journey.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.

Donald Macleod introduces a selection of works dedicated to some of the key figures in his career, including a concerto grosso from his op.1, dedicated to another cardinal, and a light-hearted trio-sonata, whose publication was made possible thanks to an enthusiastic and rich amateur flautist.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03zd8g1)
BBC NOW - Schubert, Sibelius, Beethoven

Live from BBC Hoddinott Hall, Cardiff

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales under Principal Conductor Thomas Sondergard performs Schubert's Unfinished and Sibelius's 7th symphonies. Ingrid Fliter is the soloist in Beethoven's 4th Piano Concerto.

Schubert: Symphony no. 8 in B minor D.759 (Unfinished)
Sibelius: Symphony no. 7

8.25 During the interval, choral music by Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, part of a recent concert given by the BBC National Chorus of Wales conducted by Adrian Partington.

8.50
Beethoven: Piano Concerto no. 4 in G major op. 58
Ingrid Fliter (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Sondergard (conductor)

Two short symhonies make up the first half of Live in Concert. Schubert's 8th was cut short after two movements simply because the composer lost interest in the project. Although he sketched a scherzo, he never returned to the work in later years. But its incomplete structure belies the intense drama and sublime lyricism of the two remaining movements. Sibelius achieved brevity in his Seventh Symphony by distilling the essence of contrasting symphonic movements into a single, organic unity.

The Argentinian soloist Ingrid Fliter is the soloist in Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto. A past Radio 3 New Generation Artist, she has established her reputation as an interpreter of both Chopin and Beethoven. The sublime lyricism of this concerto suits her wonderfully, and the fact that Beethoven opens with the soloist - rather than an orchestral exposition - thrusts her into the spotlight right from the first bar.


TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b03zdbn8)
Policing: Fact and Fiction

Matthew Sweet explores the idea of the police with the playwright Roy Williams, the Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police, Sara Thornton, the historian Kate Colquhoun and the film maker and criminologist Roger Graef.

Roy Williams' play Kingston 14, starring Goldie, runs at Theatre Royal Stratford East from March 28th - April 26th

Roger Graef is visiting professor at the Mannheim Centre for Criminology

Kate Colquhoun's latest book Did She Kill Him? looks at the 1889 case of Florence Maybrick who was tried for murdering her husband.

Sara Thornton is the Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police.

Producer: Natalie Steed.

Pietro Locatelli (1695-1764)

Amsterdam

At the age of 34, Locatelli gave up his international career as a virtuoso violinist and decided to settle in Amsterdam where he remained for the rest of his life. As the centre of European music publishing it proved a magnet to many composers and Locatelli, the astute businessman, took full advantage of the opportunities which presented themselves. Donald Macleod introduces some of the chamber music Locatelli published there with the ever-growing amateur market in mind, a concerto grosso from his innovative op.4 collection and another of the violin concertos from his ground-breaking magnum opus, 'L'arte del violino'.

Orhan Pamuk

Orhan Pamuk talks, in an extended conversation with Philip Dodd, about his writing career and his views of modern Turkey. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2006, his novels include The Black Book, Snow, My Name is Red and The Museum of Innocence - a book and a real building created by the author which earlier this year was awarded the European Museum of the Year award. There's also his nonfiction including the memoir Istanbul.

In this conversation, recorded earlier this year, he discusses the idea of division between the religious and the secular and division in a more personal, internalised way and he tackles the question of whether Turkey should join the European Union. Earlier this month the European Union's executive arm pressed for long-stalled membership talks with Turkey to begin again with negotiations over changes in two policy areas hampering the accession process - current Turkish policy on civil rights and judicial independence.

Pietro Locatelli (1695-1764)

The Virtuoso Violinist

Locatelli seems to have made a comfortable living in Amsterdam, not just from the sale of his music but also from teaching and from selling strings and bows imported from Italy. He continued to perform, as witnessed by a young English gentleman and his tutor who provided vivid accounts of Locatelli's virtuosity. There were conflicting attitudes to Locatelli's music; in England it was rather mixed, whereas in France they welcomed his innovative style of writing. Donald Macleod introduces another of Locatelli's flute sonatas that proved so popular amongst amateur musicians across Europe and one of the violin sonatas which best demonstrates the technical wizardry for which he became renowned.

The Legacy of Haydn

New Generation Artists, the Apollon Musagete Quartet, pay homage to Haydn in this series highlighting his legacy to future composers. Performing at the Perth Concert Hall, they present the D major Quartet from his later set, Op 71, alongside Beethoven's second 'Rasumovsky' Quartet in E minor, which shocked audiences and players alike at its first performance. 'They are not for you but for a later age' the composer is said to have responded to his critics.

Thursday Opera Matinee

Monteverdi - L'Orfeo

Opera matinee - Monteverdi: L'Orfeo, favola in musica

Monteverdi's colourful fable in music, written in 1607 for performance at the Duke of Gonzaga's court in Mantua, is performed here at Crakow's Misteria Paschalia Festival by one of Italy's leading early music groups. Beginning with its famous toccata, Monteverdi's L'Orfeo tells the legend of Orpheus, who "held the wild beasts spellbound with his song," but who descends to Hades in a fruitless attempt to bring his dead bride Eurydice back to the living world. The drama moves between the pastoral world of the fields of Thrace and the Underworld as Monteverdi explores every musical device available to a composer standing on the cusp of the Renaissance and the Baroque to paint one of the richest and most beautiful tapestries in all music. As a member of the audience in that first performance noted: "Both poet and musician have depicted the inclinations of the heart so skilfully that it could not have been done better ... nothing more beautiful is to be heard anywhere".

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic - Ravel, Puccini, Respighi

Live from Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool

The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Vasily Petrenko, in Ravel's Rapsodie Espagnole & Piano Concerto in G, with soloist Kirill Gerstein. The second half is an all-Italian programme of Puccini's Capriccio Sinfonico and Respighi's Pines of Rome.

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Kirill Gerstein, piano
Vasily Petrenko, conductor

Maurice Ravel absorbed the jazz blues on his trips to the USA, but also had a special place in his heart for the hot-blooded rhythms of his native Basque Country. Ottorino Respighi took an enchanted musical tour of his adopted home city of Rome, where even the pine trees had a song to sing; and Puccini imagined what it might be like to write a symphony rather than an opera - but still came up with some of his incredible trademark melodies.
Conductor Vasily Petrenko whisks us southwards - and after creating such a stir on his last visit to Liverpool, pianist Kirill Gerstein should make Ravel's concerto sparkle and dance like never before.

The Role of Conflict in Civilisation from Primates to Robots.'

Film critic Charlotte O Sullivan has been watching 'I Declare War,' Jason Lapeyre and Robert Wilson's film about childhood games which turn sour.

And thirteen years after British troops entered combat in Afghanistan, and in the week that the British Command handed over to the Americans in Helmand province, Noorjahan Akbar and Hamdullah Mohib talk about what has happened to their culture and society in Afghanistan over that time and what might change with national elections at the week-end.

Pietro Locatelli (1695-1764)

The Man - Fact or Fiction?

After Locatelli's death, the catalogue of the sale of his belongings revealed that he evidently made a comfortable living and his very extensive library and impressive collection of portraits, scientific and musical instruments gives an insight into his cultural life. Locatelli's interest in the classics may well have informed his decision to write the only piece of his that has a title, based on the mythological figure of Ariadne. Donald Macleod introduces this atmospheric work together with the final concerto from Locatelli's collection 'L'arte del violino' which contains one of his infamous caprices and earned the concerto its nickname 'The Harmonic Labyrinth' - easy to enter, difficult to escape.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03zd8gf)
Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra - Haydn, Bruckner

Live from the Barbican

Mariss Jansons conducts the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam in Bruckner's Seventh Symphony and Haydn's Cello Concerto in C with Truls Mørk as soloist.

Haydn: Cello Concerto in C

c. 8.00pm
Interval Music: A motet by Bruckner and the Adagio from his String Quintet in F with its pre-echos of the Seventh Symphony.

8.20pm
Bruckner: Symphony No 7

Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam
Truls Mørk, cello
Mariss Jansons, conductor

On 8 December 1881, Anton Bruckner looked from the window of his Vienna apartment as the Ringtheater burned to the ground, taking 386 audience members to their graves. The experience shook Bruckner to his very core, and made its way into the strange unease of his Seventh Symphony's scherzo. However, the redemption witnessed by Bruckner when inside the theatre attending performances of Wagner's opera Parsifal, powered this symphony on.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b03zdbnq)

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03zdbns)
Springwalks

Philip Hoare in Sholing

Five writers set out on foot to sample the transforming qualities of Spring. They report back with tales that are climatically confused - it could be warm or chilly out there ...

5. Philip Hoare is quickly at the water's edge in Sholing, well before the waking hour. Then meetings with many animals are recalled.

Producer Duncan Minshull.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b03zdc3s)
Mayra Andrade, Commonwealth Connections 9

Lopa Kothari with tracks from across the globe, Commonwealth Connections from Rwanda and Pakistan, and a session with Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade.

'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 Rwanda:
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, which was triggered by the assassination of the Rwandan President on April 6th 1994, and continued for 100 days, with an estimated death toll of more than half a million. Since then Rwanda has seen a remarkable transformation, and the capital Kigali is now a prosperous and thriving capital. Music has played its part in that transformation, and we hear first from Sophie Nzayisenga, who sings and plays the traditional stringed instrument, the inanga. She lost brothers and sisters in the conflict, surviving by hiding in the bush with her father for the hundred days. She is now involved in Rwanda's Cultural Upgrading Initiative, which seeks to promote harmony through traditional music. There is also a session with Gakondo, a traditional group which plays regular concerts at the Hotel Milles Collines, well known around the world as the former UN hotel which became a refuge during the genocide.

Heritage Track: Pakistan
Kiran Khan is one of Pakistan's first international female swimmers. She talks about the responsibilities and pressures of being a media celebrity and a role-model for other women, and the difficulties of pursuing her chosen sport in a Muslim country. Her uplifting music choice, Jazba-e-Junoon, to himmat na haar by Ali Azmat, reflects the support she's received from her family, particularly her father, who always dreamed that his daughter should fulfil her dreams and become an inspiration to others.

Session with Mayra Andrade:
She was born in Cuba, but her parents were from Cape Verde, and her main musical influences have always been the songs of these islands. Although she has lived in Paris in recent years, most of her songs are in Cape Verde's local Crioulo language. Her new album 'Lovely Difficult' has already been nominated for a French Victoires de la Musique Award.
