ENO's Thebans, Sir James Galway, The Wallfischs and The Mozart Project

Tom Service is joined by music critic Fiona Maddocks and theatre critic Michael Billington to review the British composer Julian Anderson's first opera, Thebans, based on Sophocles and directed by Pierre Audi at English National Opera. Tom meets the world famous flautist Sir James Galway, now in his seventy fifth year, and talks about his career and what the future may have in store. Continuing our series of Just the Two of Us - mother and son Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and Raphael Wallfisch discuss the importance of the cello in both of their lives, why Anita didn't want Raphael to be a musician, and what the best piece of advice is that that Raphael has ever received from his mother. There's also a report on The Mozart Project, a new interactive e-book that will be updated at least twice a year, giving readers the opportunity to put questions to the authors at the end of each chapter. Tom meets the brains behind the project, and asks if this is the start of a new relationship between reader and content.


SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b042z6dk)
Les Cyclopes at the 2013 Utrecht Early Music Festival

A concert from the Utrecht Early Music Festival recorded last August in the Pieterskerk, Utrecht in the Netherlands, performed by the French based Baroque Ensemble
Les Cyclopes co-directed from the keyboard by Thierry Maeder (organ) and Bibiane Lapointe (harpsichord).

The music includes works by 17th century composers Antonio Bertali, Andreas Hofer, Matthias Weckmann and Johann Jacob Froberger.

In 1660 in the city of Hamburg, Matthias Weckmann founded the Collegium Musicum with the support of a number of distinguished music lovers. These public gatherings provided a setting for experiments with the German musical style, and for further acquaintance with 'those things that they do so well in Venice, Rome, Vienna, Munich and Dresden.' In 1649 the Elector of Dresden organised a musical duel, also attended by the Emperor, between his organist Weckmann and Johann Jakob Froberger. This encounter marked the beginning of a close friendship that continued for the rest of their lives. The programme for this concert could easily have been performed around 1660 by Weckmann himself, and contains works from the circle of his friend Froberger.

Studio Ghibli

Matthew Sweet looks at the music for the Japanese phenomenon that is Studio Ghibli in the week that sees the release of Hayao Miyazaki last film, "The Wind Rises".

The celebrated Japanese animation studio has produced some acclaimed titles including "Spirited Away", "The Princess Mononoke", "Laputa - Castle in the Sky"and "Porco Rosso". Aviation is often a prevailing theme of the films, reflecting Miyazaki's years growing up around his father's business in the Japanese aviation industry. Matthew talks to Justin Johnson of the British Film Institute about the films, and about the BFI's current Studio Ghibli Festival; and features work from one of the studio's foremost composers, Joe Hisaishi.

Matthew also turns his attention to other great film scores inspired by the theme of aviation, including The Battle of Britain; The Sound Barrier and The Aviator.


SAT 17:00 Jazz Record Requests (b042zbxd)

Return to the 2014 Frontiers Festival

Tonight's programme includes new realisations of John Cage, a Feldman premiere, and David Lang's large-scale meditative work The Passing Measures.

In this week's Composers' Rooms, Sara Mohr-Pietsch travels to Whitstable in Kent to catch electronic composer Matthew Herbert in a state of flux, between his current office-like studio with its strip lights and nylon carpet, and his potential next space, a converted fishing hut on the beach.

And continuing our survey of early electronic releases by the American Nonesuch label we hear part of Charles Dodge's Earth's Magnetic Field, a piece of computer music which turns magnetic field data into musical sounds.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b042zk79)
Paganini

Niccolo Paganini died 174 years ago this month. An inspirational violinist, he was also a prolific composer and his works inspired far more other composers than just those who adapted his Caprice No 24.

Rob Cowan presents pieces he inspired by composers as varied as Brahms, Rachmaninov and Schumann. Plus there's the week's neglected symphony, this time Karl Amadeus Hartmann's Sinfonia Tragica.

The week's Beethoven violin sonata is no, 10 in G, Op. 96, in a recording by Christian Ferras (violin), Pierre Barbizet (piano).


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b042zk7c)
Lady Brenda Hale

Lady Hale is a trailblazer. 30 years ago, she was the first woman to be appointed to the Law Commission (and the youngest person there); 10 years ago, she was the first female judge to be appointed to the Appellate Committee of the House of Lords (as Baroness Hale of Richmond) and there hasn't been another woman appointed since. Last year she was appointed as the Deputy President of the Supreme Court. Where she is still the only woman! Her judgments have changed family and equality law in this country; and despite her eminent role she remains outspoken about domestic violence, women in prison, and the rights of children.

In Private Passions, she talks about her upbringing in Yorkshire, one of three daughters ? and about being in such a minority when she began to study law. Lady Hale chooses music which connects with her professional life: operas about crime, punishment and injustice (Beethoven's Fidelio and Britten's Billy Budd). She talks about how she'd like to change the law on divorce, and why she loves Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro. She discusses the conflict between reason and emotion in her work, and reveals that she is haunted by certain cases from the past. And she reflects on the way her judicial role has revealed the worst ? but also the best ? of human nature. Finally, during this season of exam stress, she reveals her revision tip: march up and down the room, reciting the textbook and listening to Strauss.

Produced by Elizabeth Burke, for Loftus.

First broadcast 11/05/2014.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b043573n)
Hilliard Ensemble - 40th Anniversary

Lucie Skeaping talks to members of the Hilliard Ensemble as they celebrate their 40th anniversary, and plays a selection of their many recordings.

The Hilliard Ensemble established a reputation as an early music ensemble with a series of successful recordings in the 1980s, but it was when they began also to focus on new music that the world began to sit up and take notice. The 1988 recording of Arvo Pärt's "Passio" began a fruitful relationship with the Estonian composer, and the group has recently commissioned other composers from the Baltic States, including Veljo Tormis and Erkki-Sven Tüür, adding to a rich repertoire of new music from Gavin Bryars, Heinz Holliger, John Casken, James MacMillan, Elena Firsova and many others. The Hilliard Ensemble's popularity crossed musical boundaries when their collaboration with the Norwegian Saxophonist Jan Garbareck sent their ECM recording "Officium" soaring up both classical and pop charts in several countries. Equally at home with Perotin, Palestrina and Pärt, the four members of the Hilliard Ensemble describe some of the many musical experiences they have had in concert halls and recording studios around the world, and select some of their favourite tracks from their extensive CD catalogue.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b043573s)
Flanerie - a view of Paris

An imagined serendipitous journey through Paris's streets, past and present, told through its literature and music, with the actors Tamsin Greig and Neil Pearson

The Flâneur - "that aimless stroller who loses himself in the crowd, who has no destination and goes wherever caprice or curiosity directs his or her steps".

It was Baudelaire, in his "Fleurs du Mal" in the late 19th century, who created flânerie as a literary ideal for evoking the patterns and emotions of modern urban life in Paris; but the concept of the detached observer - casual, directionless, voyeuristic - who finds refuge within the crowded streets of the capital, had been around for some time. Balzac, writing in the years before the advent of Haussman's modern cityscape, had described flânerie as "the gastronomy of the eye". Later, the German writer and social-critic, Walter Benjamin, would use the experiences of the Parisian flâneur as illustrations for socio-political commentary.

In this edition of Words and Music, we - much in the spirit of the flâneur - take a casual musical and literary journey through Paris's imagined streets. Glimpses of buildings bring to mind the city's great history and its inhabitants; its poets, writers and composers. Imagine sauntering past Notre Dame and the neighbouring university: and the ribaldry of medieval Paris fills the mind's eye, evoking the words of Villon and Rabelais; of Victor Hugo describing the medieval skyline and the festive sound of the medieval bells.

Next on to the Louvre and the Marais, and echoes of the grandeur of Paris during the age of the Sun King; of Marie de Rabutin-Chantal de Sévingné's famous letters; of the music of Lully and Charpentier. Turn another corner, and find the youthful Marin Marais, lost and bewildered by the banks of the Seine - his voice, post-pubescent - his services no longer required in the Royal Chapel.

A hundred years on, and in the wretched area of Sainte-Antoine, Charles Dickens watches the abject poor seemingly rehearse events for one the city's least glorious moments; their hands and clothes stained with red wine, like blood.

Balzac lists the varied "physiognomy" of the Parisian back streets in the years just before Haussmann re-invented the city - we follow him into some of Paris's more forbidding and darker haunts; while later - into the Belle Époque and beyond - coursing among the newer buildings, parks and thoroughfares - Baudelaire, Proust and Zola observe Parisian life with a multitude of senses and a painterly eye. As do Fauré, Verlaine and Debussy.

"Among all cities, there is none more associated with the book than Paris", wrote Walter Benjamin. Ernest Hemingway finds refuge in one of the city's necessary cafes, watching and transcribing, while Beria and Bechet set the same thoughts to music.

Finally, our serendipitous journey presents an aspect of the modern Paris: not the beautiful; nor the bustling, fashionable and vibrant; but urban nonetheless. The city at its edge - people at the periphery. The world in the Banlieue: of graffiti and the blues.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b01scxl7)
Jan Morris - Travels Round My House

Jan Morris knows a good story when she sees one, and she is one too.

A gravestone under the stairs; a posthumous book written and printed; over 60 books - history, biography and novels under her belt; Jan Morris has lived and written as a man, as a woman, and believes one day she may transcend both conditions.

As the 60th anniversary of Hillary and Tenzing's conquering of Everest approaches, writer and critic Anthony Sattin visits the Welsh home of Jan Morris and gets an exclusive peek into the scrap books and mementoes from that great Imperial adventure - part of the sketches and the relics of a lifetime's travel.

Morris recalls the scoop that made her reputation; joining the successful Everest expedition of 1953, and, against extraordinary odds, reporting the successful ascent back to The Times of London, in code, and in perfect timing - the news reached London to be announced on the morning of the Coronation.

To ferry the news back to London she employed two runners who actually ran all the way from her wind-battered tent at the foot of Everest, 180 miles to Kathmandu and back; avoiding the clutches of Daily Mail journalists, eager to steal the story.

A committed Welsh Nationalist Republican - though not actively involved in burning things down or blowing them up - Morris tells of early years in Wales, hobnobbing with more active nationalists, and of her infatuation with things as diverse as Manhattan and her recently deceased cat Ibsen. She also discusses the 'ten confused years' during which she undertook gender reassignment, and the approach of mortality - hence the gravestone under the stairs.

Fellow writers Pico Iyer and Sara Wheeler, both talk of the inspiration she has provided over the years.

And for Jan, the last word, "It was all in aid of fun".

Presenter: Anthony Sattin
Reader: Eleanor Bron
Producer: Sara Jane Hall

First broadcast in May 2013.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b04357kr)
Stile Antico live at Wigmore Hall

Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents Stile Antico in Renaissance choral masterpieces live at London's Wigmore Hall: featuring music by Byrd, Tallis, Palestrina and Victoria, plus a brand new piece by Huw Watkins.

Gombert: Magnificat primi toni
Clemens non Papa: Ego flos campi
Lassus: Veni dilecte mi
Tallis: In pace in idipsum
Byrd: Vigilate
Taverner: Audivi vocem de caelo
Huw Watkins: The Phoenix and the Turtle (world première)

Gibbons: O clap your hands
Palestrina: Exsultate Deo

Praetorius: Tota pulchra es

Stile Antico's programme brings to life the battle for the Christian souls between the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation in the 1500s and beyond. It centres on William Byrd's thrilling Vigilate - Jesus's command to his disciples and all nations to watch for Christ's second coming. Its musical setting by a Catholic composer in a Protestant country conceals many coded messages to Byrd's co-religionists.


SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b01lsz43)
Marathon Tales

The original Marathon runner Pheidippides finds himself racing alongside long distance athletes from mythology and more recent times. They all have powerful stories to tell.

Marathon Tales was based on many sources including MARATHON WOMAN by Kathrine Switzer and BAREFOOT RUNNER by Paul Rambali

MARATHON TALES brings together an interweaving set of stories about Marathons and runners over the years. Pheidippides charged with covering an immense distance to seek help from the Spartans is aided by the shepherd god Pan, and joined by an extraordinarily varied collection of athletes.

There is Abebe Bikila, the Ethiopian who won the 1960 Marathon in Rome, Atalanta, the formidable mythical figure who ran naked, John Tarrant, the "Ghost Runner" desperate to prove his amateur status and beat the privileged elite, Kathrine Switzer, the American athlete who ran the Boston Marathon when women weren't allowed in long distance competitions, and Grete Waitz the Norwegian Marathon winner who talks as fast as she runs.

MARATHON TALES harnesses the contemporary enthusiasm for competitive sport and Marathons in particular and sets it in an historical but dramatically imaginative context.

Rob's guest this week is the drummer and composer, Stewart Copeland. Stewart is best known as the former drummer co-founder of the rock band, The Police. Stewart moved beyond the rock arena in the mid-1980s, when he returned to his classical roots with creative pursuits in concert and film music. His numerous film scores include Oliver Stone's Wall Street and the Golden Globe-nominated soundtrack for Francis Ford Coppola's Rumble Fish, while his work in television includes contributions to Babylon 5 and Desperate Housewives. His career includes the sale of more than 60 million records worldwide, and numerous awards, including five Grammys, as well as a Grammy nomination for his 2005 CD "Orchestralli". He has also written for ballet, opera and orchestras, and the world premiere of his Percussion Concerto will be performed by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under Vasily Petrenko later this month.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

Grieg's Lost Symphony

Donald Macleod introduces the vast array of arrangements of Grieg's music; plus, the story of Grieg's 'forbidden' symphony of 1864.

Grieg's gift for the fleeting, artful and utterly delightful musical miniature means that he's one of the most rearranged and reimagined composers in history. Instrumentalists of every shade down the years - from trombonists to accordionists, brass bands to hard rock collectives - have sought to cast Grieg's music in their own image. This week, Donald Macleod dips his toe into the vast array of arrangements of Edvard Grieg's music - introducing a selection of brilliant, often unorthodox musical creations - whilst taking us through five key works spanning the composer's career.

The week begins with perhaps the most 'un-Griegian' of musical creations. It comes as a shock to many music-lovers to discover that the young Grieg composed a symphony: one he later marked 'never to be performed'. Donald Macleod explores the story behind this 'forbidden' symphony and why it never came to be heard.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b0435880)

Live from Wigmore Hall, London.

London Conchord Ensemble

Mozart: Oboe Quartet in F major, K370
Prokofiev: Quintet in G minor, Op 39
Schoenberg: Chamber Symphony No 1 in E major, Op 9 (arr Webern)

The London Conchord Ensemble, a chamber group of leading solosists from UK orchestras, plays a programme of vivid contrasts. Mozart's lovely oboe quartet and Schoenberg's groundbreaking Chamber Symphony - brilliantly arranged for flute, clarinet, violin, cello and piano by his pupil Anton Webern - are juxtaposed with an imaginative Prokofiev piece based on ballet music - in six movements, for five instruments (two winds and three strings).

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.


MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b0435882)
Great Ballets of the Twentieth Century

Episode 1

Great Ballets of the Twentieth Century.
Presented by James Jolly.

This week, Afternoon on 3 explores some of the colourful ballet scores which changed the course of music history. Beginning with Glazunov's allegorical ballet The Seasons, premiered by the Imperial ballet of St Petersburg in 1900, the story then moves to Paris; for it was here that in 1910 Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russe launched the career of the young Igor Stravinsky with his Firebird, a ballet based on Russian folk tales about a magical glowing bird that can be both a blessing and a curse to its owner. Diaghilev and Stravinsky built on the triumph of The Firebird in the following Parisian seasons with the heady Petruschka and the earth-shattering Rite of Spring. But Stravinsky was not the only composer to be adopted by the great Russian impresario; Ravel too was working on what he called a symphonie choréographique based on a story concerning the love between the goatherd Daphnis and the shepherdess Chloé. Ravel's hour-long Daphnis et Chloé is regarded by many as the refined Frenchman's orchestral masterpiece and its famous depiction of the sun rising at dawn must surely be one of the most magical moments in all music.
Also this week, a chance to hear Germany's leading period instrument ensemble in Haydn's last great work, his oratorio The Seasons.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b01nwd8b)
TV Dinners to Roadside Diners

Adam Gopnik

Five leading American writers write about the cultural history of their favourite comfort food. Far from haute cuisine, these choices are a cake, a snack, and a dish in a box, a hearty homemade dessert and a thick gooey ubiquitous spread. The writers explore with delight and authority how these foods became American, they explain why they continue to be iconic and popular and compare regional preferences.

In this edition, New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik makes his mother's Cheesecake.
Later in the series are Joyce Maynard on popcorn, novelist Michael Cunningham on Mac n Cheese, Simon Winchester on pies and Alice Sebold on peanut butter.

Some of these foods are served at roadside diners and others are best eaten in front of the TV, curled up on the coach. Each author has a story about why his or her choice has a strong personal connection. Most were introduced to their comfort food in childhood and now they share them with their families. None of these foods are good for the waistline but each is so loved that there is little guilt about indulging in traditional mouthfuls of pure heaven.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b0435892)
Michael Wollny Trio at the 2014 Cheltenham Jazz Festival

German pianist Michael Wollny brings his trio to the 2014 Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

One of the most prominent jazz stars to rise from Germany in recent years, Wollny is distinctly a lyrical performer - revelling in simplicity over showy technique. Building drama through evocative themes, Wollny blends improvisation with classical inflections and brooding gothic undertones. The carefully crafted grooves of drummer Eric Schaefer and bassist Christian Weber complete the line-up for this concert at the Playhouse Theatre in Cheltenham, in the first of three programmes showcasing Jazz on 3's coverage of the festival.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

Reimagining a Warhorse

Donald Macleod introduces three very different interpretations of Grieg's famous Piano Concerto, and explores its place in our collective musical consciousness.

Grieg's gift for the fleeting, artful and utterly delightful musical miniature means that he's one of the most rearranged and reimagined composers in history. Instrumentalists of every shade down the years - from trombonists to accordionists, brass bands to hard rock collectives - have sought to cast Grieg's music in their own image. This week, Donald Macleod dips his toe into the vast array of arrangements of Edvard Grieg's music - introducing a selection of brilliant, often unorthodox musical creations - whilst taking us through five key works spanning the composer's career.

Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor holds an almost mythical place in our collective musical consciousness - by far the most popular and beloved piano concerto with the general public, listeners of a certain age still chuckle at the memory of "Mr Andrew Preview"'s performance on the Morecambe and Wise show. Today, Donald Macleod explores three very different versions of this iconic work - from the jazz-lounge of Ray Conniff, to Grieg's own two-piano arrangement of the opening movement, to a spellbinding jazz reimagining by the young British composer Gwilym Simcock - before ending the programme with Svistoslav Richter's coruscating performance of the finale with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra.

Glazunov's beautifully crafted depiction of the seasons, premiered at St Petersburg's Imperial Ballet in 1900 is followed by Stravinsky's Petrushka, premiered in Paris in 1911. With a stage inhabited by Russian street-sellers, a ferris-wheel, a carousel, and a puppet theatre preparing for the Shrovetide Fair, Stravinsky's second ballet for Diaghilev's Ballets russes is a far-cry from the more traditional world of Glazunov's Imperial Ballet.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

Grieg's Double Bass Concerto

Donald Macleod explores more unusual Grieg arrangements, including a double bass concerto - plus the composer's much-loved Holberg Suite, in its original piano version.

Grieg's gift for the fleeting, artful and utterly delightful musical miniature means that he's one of the most rearranged and reimagined composers in history. Instrumentalists of every shade down the years - from trombonists to accordionists, brass bands to hard rock collectives - have sought to cast Grieg's music in their own image. This week, Donald Macleod dips his toe into the vast array of arrangements of Edvard Grieg's music - introducing a selection of brilliant, often unorthodox musical creations - whilst taking us through five key works spanning the composer's career.

Unlike the 'secret' symphony heard in Monday's episode, Grieg most definitely did not ever conceive of a double bass concerto. However, that didn't deter the acclaimed double bassist Gary Karr, whose virtuoso reimagining of the composer's Cello Sonata we hear in today's programme. Donald Macleod also presents two rare choral works, as well as one of Grieg's best loved compositions in its unfamiliar original form: the Holberg Suite.

Scriabin: Sonata No 5
Shostakovich: 3 Preludes,Op 34 Nos 6, 17 & 24

Great Ballets of the Twentieth Century

Episode 3

Great Ballets of the Twentieth Century.
Presented by Ian Skelly.

This week, Afternoon on 3 explores the century's colourful ballet scores. Debussy's Jeux, a rarefied flirtation of a boy and two girls during a game of tennis was soon eclipsed by the scandal of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring also premiered by Dhiagilev's Ballets russes in 1913. But today we move on from the earthy Russian world of Stravinsky's first two ballets to find him in neo-classical mode with his 1920 Commedia dell'arte puppet ballet, Pulcinella. But before that, brace yourselves for the braying of the hunting horns in the choruses of Autumn from Haydn's final masterpiece.

Ivan Klima, the East-West divide in Europe, Science Fiction in Theatre

Czech writer Ivan Klima has published a memoir My Crazy Century. It begins with his family's imprisonment in the Nazi camp at Terezin in 1941 when he was aged 10 and covers events up to the Velvet Revolution in 1989. Now in his 80's, he looks back at life and writing.

Philip Dodd also asks whether divisions between East and West continue to affect European unity. He is joined by Agata Pyzik, a polish writer and blogger and author of 'Poor But Sexy: Culture Clashes between East and West', Oxford University's Gwendolyn Sasse, a German expert on the Comparative Politics of Central and Eastern Europe and author of the prize-winning book The Crimea Question: Identity, Transition, and Conflict (2007) and Hungarian-Romanian businessman and writer, Zoltan Boszormenyi, whose latest cold-war novel is called The Club at Eddy's Bar discuss the West's apparent need to find a generic label for their part of the world and whether it helps or hinders the region's sense of self and global development.

And current New Generation Thinker and Cambridge academic Dr Sarah Dillon and critic Susannah Clapp reflect on science fiction on stage and screen as Free Thinking continues its focus on catching up with previous New Generation Thinkers.
1984 is on stage at the Playhouse Theatre in London's West End.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b01nwf0n)
TV Dinners to Roadside Diners

Michael Cunningham

Five American writers write about the cultural history of their favourite comfort food. Far from haute cuisine, these choices are a cake, a snack, and a dish in a box, a hearty homemade dessert and a thick gooey ubiquitous spread. The writers explore with delight and authority how these foods became American, they explain why they continue to be iconic and popular and compare regional preferences. None of these foods are good for the waistline but each is so loved that there is little guilt about indulging in traditional mouthfuls of pure heaven.

Novelist Michael Cunningham, best known for his novel The Hours, wonders why he was so more attached to the macaroni and cheese that came in a box, than his mother's cooking. And he's struck by the promise that this instant food conjured up a space age world of endless leisure. He despairs that this humble dish has become an unrecognisable gourmet food in some restaurants.

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

Several Peers Gynt

Donald Macleod introduces a series of contrasting musical takes on Peer Gynt - from the lyrical to the industrial.

Grieg's gift for the fleeting, artful and utterly delightful musical miniature means that he's one of the most rearranged and reimagined composers in history. Instrumentalists of every shade down the years - from trombonists to accordionists, brass bands to hard rock collectives - have sought to cast Grieg's music in their own image. This week, Donald Macleod dips his toe into the vast array of arrangements of Edvard Grieg's music - introducing a selection of brilliant, often unorthodox musical creations - whilst taking us through five key works spanning the composer's career.

Amongst the myriad reworkings of Grieg's music, one piece stands out as offender-in-chief. Grieg's own reworking of his music to Ibsen's play "Peer Gynt" into two orchestral suites ensured his fame and fortune - and a multitude of arrangements, even in his own lifetime. But more than this, and faintly surreally, one famous number, "In The Hall Of The Mountain King" has more recently found a devoted following that Grieg could have never have imagined ... amongst devotees of hard rock and heavy metal. Donald Macleod explores the circumstances of Peer Gynt's composition - as well as the bizarre array of arrangements that followed.

Thursday Opera Matinee

Gluck - Armide

Gluck's Armide from Netherlands Opera
Presented by Ian Skelly.

In his anniversary year, Afternoon on 3 presents a rare performance of an opera which set Parisian artistic circles alight when it was first heard in 1777. After his recent triumphs in Iphigénie en Aulide, Orphée and Alceste, Gluck now felt ready for an all-out assault on the French operatic tradition of Lully. By choosing to use precisely the same libretto by Philippe Quinault that Lully had set nearly a century earlier he risked all as he threw his hat into the ring with Diderot and Jean Jacques Rousseau and forged a new, revitalized French style. Gluck's setting of Quinault's libretto, itself based on Torquato Tasso's Gerusalemme liberata (Jerusalem Delivered), quickly supplanted Lully's opéra lyrique and remained in the Parisian operatic repertory through Revolution and war until the time of Rossini.
The opera is set in Damascus at the time of the First Crusade. Armide ensnares her enemy the Christian knight Renaud with her magic spells. But, when she raises her dagger to kill him, Armide finds herself falling in love with Renaud. She casts a spell to make him love her in return. Renaud's love is, of course a mere illusion, something that Armide cannot bear, so she calls on the Goddess of Hate to make her hate Renaud. again. But the Goddess condemns Armide to eternal love. Two of his fellow soldiers reach Renaud and break Armide's spell and Renaud makes his escape. In a monologue much admired by Berlioz, Armide abandons all hope as she sings of her rage and of her despair.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b01nwf0q)
TV Dinners to Roadside Diners

Simon Winchester

Five American writers write about the cultural history of their favourite comfort food. Far from haute cuisine, these choices are a cake, a snack, and a dish in a box, a hearty homemade dessert and a thick gooey ubiquitous spread. The writers explore with delight and authority how these foods became American, they explain why they continue to be iconic and popular and compare regional preferences. None of these foods are good for the waistline but each is so loved that there is little guilt about indulging in traditional mouthfuls of pure heaven.

Simon Winchester makes different pies during the year on his farm in New England. He travels America in search of the best shoofly, huckleberry and pumpkin pie. His story begins with one slice of blueberry pie at a roadside diner that turned him into a slave to pies.

His career includes the sale of more than 60 million records worldwide, and numerous awards, including five Grammys, as well as a Grammy nomination for his 2005 CD "Orchestralli".

Edvard Grieg (1843-1907)

A Neglected Song Cycle

Donald Macleod introduces a rare complete performance of Grieg's final vocal masterpiece - his song-cycle Haugtussa (The Mountain Maid).

Grieg's gift for the fleeting, artful and utterly delightful musical miniature means that he's one of the most rearranged and reimagined composers in history. Instrumentalists of every shade down the years - from trombonists to accordionists, brass bands to hard rock collectives - have sought to cast Grieg's music in their own image. This week, Donald Macleod dips his toe into the vast array of arrangements of Edvard Grieg's music - introducing a selection of brilliant, often unorthodox musical creations - whilst taking us through five key works spanning the composer's career.

Although Grieg's solo songs are much beloved by performers, his only song cycle, the late masterpiece Haugtussa (The Mountain Maid) is rarely performed; in the final episode of this week's series, we hear it performed by the mezzo-soprano, Anne-Sofie von Otter. There's also a final dip into the plethora of arrangements of Grieg's music - including a two-piano version of his stirring "Homage March" - plus a rare outing for his very final work, the Four Psalms for baritone and chorus.


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b043595j)
Russian Romantics

Denis Kozhukhin

The young virtuosic Russian pianist, Denis Kozhukhin, closes this week's series of Russian Romantics from LSO St Luke's in London. He pairs Prokofiev's 9th Sonata with a Prelude and Fugue by Taneyev, the very professor who suggested that Prokofiev should start lessons in piano and composition. The series is brought to a sparkling conclusion in Rachmaninov's Variations on a Theme of Corelli, a Romantic take on a Baroque classic.

FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b0435bp8)
Kristi Stassinopoulou and Stathis Kalyviotis, Phil Stanton, Commonwealth Connections 15

Lopa Kothari introduces live music by Kristi Stassinopoulou and Stathis Kalyviotis, and talks to Phil Stanton who founded the Rough Guides label of world music compilations 20 years ago this year. This week's Commonwealth Connection is made in Dominica featuring the traditional Jing-ping style of music, and the Heritage Track is chosen by ping-pong champion Anolyn Lulu from Vanuatu.

LIVE SESSION:
Greekadelia is the latest album release of Kristi Stassinopoulou and Stathis Kalyviotis, and this innovative pair perform electro-acoustic arrangements of traditional folk songs from Greece as well as their own compositions, using their traditional instruments, live looping techniques and story telling.

COMMONWEALTH CONNECTIONS FEATURE: DOMINICA
Music is a family affair in La Petite Souffriere, a tiny and remote village high in the hills of Dominica. Isma Alie still works as a farmer cultivating Bay Tree plantations for their oil but also happens to be the island's greatest accordion player. With his son James and grandson Jackson, he keeps alive the traditional Jing-ping music of Dominica for community dances and celebrations.

COMMONWEALTH CONNECTIONS HERITAGE TRACK: VANUATU
Vanuatu - which literally means freestanding - has only existed as an independent country since 1980, and before that it was known as the New Hebrides and run by Britain and France. This South Pacific archipelago consists of more than eighty islands and lies a thousand miles east of northern Australia, west of Fiji, and southeast of the Solomon Islands. It has a population of less than quarter of a million, but despite that has a strong reputation for table tennis, especially in the shape of Anolyn Lulu whose chosen song is "Freedom" by Vanuatu's Vanessa Quai, as she explained from her island home.
