SAT 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b043wj9y)
BBC SO, Chorus and Singers - Faure, Poulenc

Fauré's glorious Requiem and Poulenc's opera Les Mamelles de Tirésias - two French masterpieces. The BBC Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Chorus, BBC Singers and a great cast of soloists are conducted by Ludovic Morlot.

Live from the Barbican Centre, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

An evening of Gallic delights featuring Poulenc's most light-hearted and rarely-performed opera and Fauré's intimate, celestial Requiem. Les Mamelles de Tirésias is a setting of Apollinaire's surreal burlesque, in which ardent feminist Thérèse decides to become a man and fight wars, leaving her husband to repopulate the country by giving birth to 40,049 children in a single day! Poulenc conjures up all the undercurrents in the poet's fierce, absurd and often hilarious lines - sung by a superb cast with the BBC Singers. Canadian soprano Hélène Guilmette takes on the truculent and unpredictable heroine. In complete contrast, the BBC Symphony Chorus join soloists Hélène Guilmette and Jean-François Lapointe (baritone) for Fauré's much-loved Requiem, a tender work of consolation, played at his own funeral.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03k0kjs)
Laura Mvula

Laura Mvula is more than just a pop star; before she had a best-selling album and industry awards she studied composition at the Birmingham Conservatoire. In an in-depth interview in Private Passions, she reveals how she went from classical music student to chart-topping singer.

In this warm and funny interview, Mvula talks to Michael Berkeley about her musical upbringing and about how church music, piano and violin lessons and performances for her aunt's a cappella group, Black Voices, initially went hand in hand with a crippling stage fright. At ten, she was so scared of performing that she howled on stage when the applause started and had to be rescued by her parents. She also talks about how as a student she began going to hear English choral music, but she had an ulterior motive: she fancied one of her fellow-students, a classical baritone, so she went to see him every time she could. It worked, they're now married; and she fell in love with choral composers like Eric Whitacre at the same time. And Laura reveals how at first she didn't quite at appreciate her big break from producer Steve Brown (she was too busy eating a banana).

Following her appearance at this summer's Urban Prom, Laura Mvula explains why she doesn't believe in separating music into genres and why she remains a passionate listener to - and advocate for - classical music.

In this programme she reveals how she still finds inspiration in classical composers for her own work. She plays a piece of Debussy and talks about how it inspired one of her own songs, 'Make Me Lovely'; she also chooses Elgar, Michael Tippett, William Walton, and 'Lush and Bluesy', a string piece by her teacher at the Conservatoire, Joe Cutler. Other musical choices include William Walton, Nina Simone and Miles Davis.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b043wpvb)
Good Intentions

Intent is a great driver for drama. The better the intent the more agonising the tragedy when it all goes wrong and, in equal part, the more hilarious the comedy as chaos unfolds in front of a knowing audience. And there are several different varieties of good intention; the ambitious, the optimistic, the clear sighted, the nervous and the horribly mistaken.

Today's Words and Music seeks, with the best of intentions, to illustrate just a few of them and to discover where they might lead, beginning with a well-intentioned trip to the underworld where Orpheus attempts to win back his wife.

Eve's intentions appear laudable enough as Milton has her contemplate sampling 'the fruit of that forbidden tree', and it's hard to blame Shakespeare's Juliet and Friar Lawrence for hatching a plot that they believe will ensure a happy ending all round.

There's a look back to the now agonising intentions of the Music Hall Recruitment songs with the results reflected with understated eloquence by Sarojini Naidu's 'Gift of India.'

And there are less direct approaches. Was Midas a greedy tyrant or just another, very modern, figure to fall under the sway of the apparent virtue of economic need? Carol Ann Duffy has Mrs Midas watch and judge the results. And Robert Burns, doing what any farmer should be doing at harvest time, finds his innocent intentions are pretty grim news for the mouse whose home he unwittingly exposes.
And then there's the sheer joy resulting from the operatic activities of a cleaning lady in Wexford, shared by the late Bernard Levin, and the Flanders and Swann hymn to eternal self-generating good works in 'The Gasman Cometh'.

The readers are John Sessions and Indira Varma.

Producer: Tom Alban.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b043wpvd)
Clocks and Clouds: An Adventure Around Gyorgy Ligeti

Thanks in part to the use of his music in the films of Stanley Kubrick, the Romanian-born composer Gyorgy Ligeti has emerged as the most widely loved of post-war modernist composers. Already an elegant musical craftsman when he fled his communist homeland in 1956, he flourished amid the brave new world of musical possibilities that had opened up after the trauma of the Second World War.

Ligeti's diminutive figure contained many contradictions - the intellectual and the sensual, the systematic and the anarchic - and in 'Clocks and Clouds' we explore the man, his personal history as a Jew in Nazi- and then Soviet-occupied Hungary, his music and his legacy.

A recording of Ligeti himself from 1997, much of which has never been broadcast, is interwoven with new interviews from Ligeti's son Lukas, a New York-based composer and percussionist; Louise Duchesneau, the composer's assistant for over twenty years; American musical analyst Amy Bauer; British composer Christopher Fox and the Dublin-based academic Wolfgang Marx.

Produced by Alan Hall
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3

SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b043wpvg)

Live from Perth concert Hall

Presented by Jamie MacDougall

The RLPO plays works by Elgar, Prokofiev and Stewart Copeland

Elgar: In the South 'Alassio', Op.50

Stewart Copeland: Percussion Concerto

20.25 Prokofiev: Symphony No 6, Op. 111

Adrian Spillett, Graham Johns and Henry Baldwin (percussion)
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

The inspiration for Elgar's overture In the South came as he watched a shepherd walk amongst hillside ruins in the Italian Riviera during the winter of 1903. The sounds of soaring vistas and ancient military might were written despite Elgar's poor health and depression at the recent deaths of friends. Prokofiev's symphony No. 6, his elegy to the tragedies of war closes the evening, following the Scottish premiere of a new percussion concerto by former drummer of The Police, Stewart Copeland.


SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b01ryffy)
Curated by Mark Ravenhill

The Octoroon

By Dion Boucicault
Adapted by Mark Ravenhill

The Octoroon, Dion Boucicault's 1859 melodrama, sparked debates about the abolition of slavery and the role of theatre in politics. This production was recorded in front of an audience at Theatre Royal Stratford East, the venue that saw an earlier production of the same play in 1885.

The story centres around the inhabitants of the Louisiana plantation of Terrebonne. Zoe, the "octoroon" of the title, is the daughter of its owner Judge Peyton by one of his slaves, but she has been raised as part of the family. When the Judge dies, the plantation falls into financial ruin and the Judge's handsome nephew George arrives as heir apparent. George and Zoe soon find themselves in love, but their future happiness is thrown into jeopardy by the plantation's evil overseer Jacob McLosky who has dastardly designs on both the property and Zoe. McLosky will stop at nothing - not even murder.

Dion Boucicault's play contains all the elements of great melodrama - doomed love, murder, corruption, and live musical accompaniment throughout.

Music composed and performed by Colin Sell

Director: Sasha Yevtushenko
Production Co-ordinator: Lesley Allan
Studio Managers: Colin Guthrie, Alison Craig, Steve Oak

First broadcast in May 2013.

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

A Childhood Wasted?

Donald Macleod explores the life and work of the quintessential romantic, Hector Berlioz. A friend of Berlioz remarked that "there has probably never been a famous composer whose childhood was wasted in circumstances less favourable to musical development." Berlioz grew up without any significant musical stimulus in his childhood. His father directed him towards a medical career, and it was only after two years of studying medicine in Paris that Berlioz followed his own desires and, without his parents' moral support, proceeded confidently on his course, which was to be far from easy over the next five years, studying at the Paris Conservatoire.

MON 19:30 Opera on 3 (b043ws9l)
Julian Anderson's Thebans

Presented by Andrew McGregor

Julian Anderson's new opera to a libretto by Frank McGuinness based on Sophocles' Oedipus trilogy from English National Opera. Edward Gardner conducts a cast led by Roland Wood as Oedipus.

"Familes are terrifying" says librettist Frank McGuinness about Sophocles' Theban plays, Julian Anderson adds "It's what happens when you mingle personal and political: they don't mix". In this version of the Greek dramas, the three individual plays are rendered down to one Act each to create a taught retelling of the story of Oedipus's journey from proud King of Thebes to blind, wandering exile.

In Oedipus the King Thebes is cursed with disease and pestilence and the Delphic Oracle proclaims that to cure itself the city must drive out the man who killed the old king. Roland Wood's Oedipus vows to seek out the killer and in doing so sets a chain of events that leads to the knowledge that he killed his father, married Jocasta - his mother - and fathered three children/siblings. Jocasta kills herself and Oedipus is driven from Thebes.

Anderson and McGuinness reverse the usual order of the second and third plays so that the dark heart of the opera is Antigone - set in a Fascistic state in Pierre Audi's production complete with brutalist decor and a chorus of black-shirts. Oedipus is dead, as are his two sons who have killed each other in a fraternal fight to reclaim the city from their mother's brother Creon who now rules. Only his daughter, Antigone, survives and is engaged to Creon's son but her disobedience in performing funeral rites for one of her dead brothers leads to tragedy and her own death.

The opera spools back time for the final part - Oedipus at Colonus. Set in a post-apocalyptic winter, Oedipus and Antigone stumble to Colonus, a sacred place. He encounters his son Polynices who he curses, Creon arrives with soldiers to carry off Antigone but she is saved by the intervention of Theseus, King of Colonus. Oedipus says goodbye to his daughter and departs the world, while Antigone is left alone to mourn her father.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b01r5np8)
Explaining the Explicit

Julian Barnes

Five different writers consider the reasons why and the challenges of writing about sex. In episode one, Julian Barnes asks 'Is writing about sex the same as writing about any other human activity - say, gardening or cricket?' and as a novelist 'what words do you use and what effect are you trying to have?'

In little more than a few decades, perhaps a generation or two, western culture has arguably progressed from a largely repressed and circumspect attitude to portraying the sins and pleasures of the flesh to an altogether more casual and certainly visually more permissive approach. How have writers and readers, adjusted to these changes and what are authors trying to say when they write about sex? Is the written word trailing in the wake of film, tv and video or have these media liberated authors from a more timid, and possibly less authentic way of writing?

These essays offer a chance to step back and reflect on some of the subtler arguments that can get lost amidst a sea of pneumatic imagery. Somewhere between the conventions of shock, titillation and comedy lie a whole range of other ideas that can be explored when writing about sex.

First broadcast in March 2013.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b043w9xz)
Thomas Stronen's Time is a Blind Guide

A second chance to hear Norwegian drummer Thomas Strønen with his new project Time Is a Blind Guide in concert at the 2014 Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

Bringing together talent from both sides of the North Sea, including pianist Kit Downes, Strønen's sextet incorporates string and percussion mini-ensembles within it. It's a setting that gives the leader the opportunity to blend his passions for classical music and jazz through rich and melodic writing that also references Nordic folk, most obviously through the Hardanger fiddle of Nils Økland. Subtle string textures are offset by upbeat grooves and a strong sense of rhythmic interplay, in a performance featuring new material written especially for the festival.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe

First broadcast 26/05/2014.

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

The Romantic Idealist

"My whole life," Berlioz wrote, "has been one long ardent pursuit of an ideal which I created myself." In this programme, Donald Macleod explores the music that resulted from Berlioz's romantic idealism, including his falling in love, precociously, at the age of 12; and later, in what he called "the grand drama of my life," his overwhelming infatuation with the young Irish actress Harriet Smithson, an infatuation which would produce two of his genre-defying works, Symphonie Fantastique and Lélio, or the Return to Life.

Four of Bach's most joyful works, from performers who've become renowned for their Bach playing - the Academy of Ancient Music and Music Director Richard Egarr.

Richard Egarr directs two orchestral suites - starting with No 3, which features the famous Air on the G string - and plays two harpsichord concertos, which Bach composed for performance in a Leipzig coffee houses, probably with one of his many sons as soloists. Never work with children or animals? Perhaps it's safe if you keep it in the family. Especially if your family is as large and as musical as the Bachs.

Explaining the Explicit

David Bellos

Five different writers consider the reasons why and the challenges of writing about sex. Today David Bellos, translator and Professor of Comparative Literature explores why translating sex is so difficult and wonders whether the difficulties themselves can cast light on the subject.

In little more than a few decades, perhaps a generation or two, western culture has arguably progressed from a largely repressed and circumspect attitude to portraying the sins and pleasures of the flesh to an altogether more casual and certainly visually more permissive approach. How have writers and readers, adjusted to these changes and what are authors trying to say when they write about sex? Is the written word trailing in the wake of film, tv and video or have these media liberated authors from a more timid, and possibly less authentic way of writing?

Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)

Shakespeare

After his first encounter with Shakespeare's Hamlet, which he recognised as the supreme turning point of his life, Hector Berlioz emerged from the theatre reeling, vowing not to expose himself a second time "to the flame of Shakespeare's genius." But when he saw the playbills advertising Romeo and Juliet a few days later, he simply couldn't stay away. He bought a seat in the stalls. As he said himself: "My fate was doubly sealed." Hector Berlioz remained enraptured by Shakespeare all his life. In this programme, Donald Macleod explores this fascination, including his King Lear overture and the "dramatic symphony" Romeo and Juliet.

Endellion String Quartet - Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert

String Quartets by Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert from the Endellion String Quartet live at Wigmore Hall

Presented by Martin Handley

Haydn: String Quartet in B flat, Op.55 No.3
Beethoven: String Quartet in F, Op.135

8.15pm
Interval

8.35pm
Schubert: String Quartet in D minor, D810, 'Death and the Maiden'

Haydn's delightful Op.55 No.3 quartet is surprisingly little known, unlike Schubert's 'Death and the Maiden' - perhaps the most popular of all string quartets. The latter catches the imagination with greater intensity at each hearing. Beethoven's last major piece is a timeless treasure, and perhaps suggests the new directions his work might have taken had he lived longer.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b01r5pg2)
Explaining the Explicit

Sarah Churchwell

Sarah Churchwell, writer and Professor of American Literature at UEA examines the tradition of depicting sex in popular fiction. Recent successful publications are only following in the footsteps of earlier generations of female writers reaching back as far as England's Edith Maude Hull who published her bestselling The Sheik in 1919.

In little more than a few decades, perhaps a generation or two, western culture has arguably progressed from a largely repressed and circumspect attitude to portraying the sins and pleasures of the flesh to an altogether more casual and certainly visually more permissive approach. How have writers and readers, adjusted to these changes and what are authors trying to say when they write about sex? Is the written word trailing in the wake of film, tv and video or have these media liberated authors from a more timid, and possibly less authentic way of writing?

These essays offer a chance to step back and reflect on some of the subtler arguments that can get lost amidst a sea of pneumatic imagery. Somewhere between the conventions of shock, titillation and comedy lie a whole range of other ideas that can be explored when writing about sex.

First broadcast in March 2013.

2014 St Davids Cathedral Festival

Live from St Davids Cathedral, Pembrokeshire

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Mahler's Fourth symphony, a child's view of heaven and Messiaen's L'Acension from St. Davids Cathedral Festival with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Jac van Steen

Messiaen: L'Ascension

7.35: During the interval, a vintage recording or Messiaen himself playing Transports de joie, the movement he added to L'Ascension when he rewrote his orchestral piece for organ solo. Nicola Heywood Thomas also talks to tonight's soloist, Ailish Tynan, and listens to her recent recordings of French music by Poulenc and Fauré.

7.55
Mahler: Symphony No.4

Ailish Tynan (soprano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Jac van Steen

followed at approximately 9pm by:

Bach: Ascension Oratorio Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen, BWV 11
Barbara Schlick (soprano), Catherine Patriasz (alto), Christoph Prégardein (tenor), Peter Kooy (bass)
Collegium Vocale, Ghent
Philippe Herreweghe (conductor)
[recorded in 1995]

Messiaen's Christian faith was always at the heart of his musical output. L'Ascension is one of his earliest orchestral works (1933), a set of four contrasting meditations each taking a religious text as a starting point. In turn, Messiaen expresses his Catholicism in mystical contemplation and ecstatic praise. Mahler described his Fourth Symphony as "a work for children and those who will become children". This song-like work culminates in a representation of a child's view of heaven for soprano, sung here by Ailish Tynan. The Romanesque nave of St Davids Cathedral in Pembrokeshire provides the perfect setting for this heavenward-soaring programme, part of the 2014 St David's Festival.

Vicki Feaver

Poet Vicki Feaver is nearly 70. She looks back on her own reading and writing of poetry and reflects on how the poet as the lyric 'I' can be both more exposed and more uninhibited when exploring her own sexuality.

In little more than a few decades, perhaps a generation or two, western culture has arguably progressed from a largely repressed and circumspect attitude to portraying the sins and pleasures of the flesh to an altogether more casual and certainly visually more permissive approach. How have writers and readers, adjusted to these changes and what are authors trying to say when they write about sex?

Her debut novel, A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, won the 2005 Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for comic writing at the Hay Literary Festival, and was shortlisted for the 2005 Orange Prize for Fiction. It has been translated into thirty-five languages. Marina's other novels include We Are All Made of Glue, Various Pets Alive and Dead, and Two Caravans, which was shortlisted for the 2008 Orwell Prize for political writing. In 2009, she donated the short story The Importance of Having Warm Feet to Oxfam's Ox-Tales project, as well as another short story, Business Philosophy, to the Amnesty International anthology, Freedom: Short Stories Celebrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The Bitter End

Donald Macleod explores the bitter final years of Hector Berlioz, when, troubled by ill health and a continued poor reception for his music in France he was moved to write in his Memoirs: "I am alone. My contempt for the folly and baseness of mankind, my hatred of its atrocious cruelty, have never been so intense. And I say hourly to death: 'When you will.' Why does he delay?".

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b0449qqn)
The Britten Sinfonia - Birtwistle at 80

The Britten Sinfonia performs music by Vaughan Williams, Holst and Harrison Birtwistle as part of the Barbican's Birtwistle at 80 season.

Live from Milton Court, London
Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Vaughan Williams: Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis
Holst: If You Love Songs; Lovely Venus; David's Lament for Jonathan; The Fields of Sorrow

Harrison Birtwistle: The Fields of Sorrow

Interval

Harrison Birtwistle: Melencolia I
Vaughan Williams: Flos Campi

Clare Finnimore (viola)
Britten Sinfonia Voices
Britten Sinfonia
Baldur Bronnimann (conductor)

The concert traces three major English composers' responses to landscape and national identity. Vaughan Williams's unique pastoral elegy Flos Campi (Flowers of the Field) explores a landscape of physical and spiritual longing, whilst Holst's Fields of Sorrow is a cold and bleak emotional journey. Using the same Ausonius text as Holst, Harrison Birtwistle demonstrates a highly individual continuation of the English pastoral tradition that has its roots in the rediscovery of landscape as a creative force.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b0449qqq)
Hay Festival: Karl Ove Knausgaard, Philip Ardagh

Ian McMillan presents the 'Cabaret of the Word' from the Hay Festival.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01r5pg6)
Explaining the Explicit

Rachel Johnson

Journalist and novelist, Rachel Johnson won the Bad Sex Award in 2008, the same year that the judges awarded John Updike a 'lifetime achievement' award. In 2013 she was one of the judges of the Women's Prize for Fiction - are we all a bit too ready to leap to judgement when it comes to writing about sex?
In little more than a few decades, perhaps a generation or two, western culture has arguably progressed from a largely repressed and circumspect attitude to portraying the sins and pleasures of the flesh to an altogether more casual and certainly visually more permissive approach. How have writers and readers, adjusted to these changes and what are authors trying to say when they write about sex? Is the written word trailing in the wake of film, tv and video or have these media liberated authors from a more timid, and possibly less authentic way of writing?

These essays offer a chance to step back and reflect on some of the subtler arguments that can get lost amidst a sea of pneumatic imagery. Somewhere between the conventions of shock, titillation and comedy lie a whole range of other ideas that can be explored when writing about sex.

First broadcast in March 2013.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b0449qqs)
Jaune Toujours in session, plus Commonwealth Connections 17

Lopa Kothari with our Commonwealth Connections series, including a location feature from New Zealand and our Heritage Track from Guyana, also a session with band Jaune Toujours, plus new world music releases from around the globe. Jaune Toujours photo by Alex Vanhee

New Zealand
Whiri Tu Aka are a 5-piece all-female Maori a cappella group founded by producer/vocalist Mina Ripa. Best known for her work in the field of electronica and dance music, this project was inspired by the birth of Mina's son to create music using only 'the power of the voice'. We hear a performance by the band recorded at a special event on Waitangi Day (February 6th) at a waterfront concert in Wellington. On this day in 1840 the country's founding document, the Treaty of Waitangi was signed granting Maori people ownership of their lands and properties giving them the same rights as British subjects. The programme also features a unique collaboration with members of Whiri Tu Aka and Horomona Horo a practitioner of 'taonga puoro', the collective term given to a wide array of Maori instruments, recorded on the shores of Titahi Bay, Porirua in the North Island of New Zealand.

Heritage Track - Guyana
Writer and academic David Dabydeen is currently Guyana's ambassador to China. His Heritage Track is the calypso Not a Blade of Grass by Dave Martins and the Tradewinds. For David the song prompts thoughts of Guyana's evolving relationship with Britain since independence in 1966, and of the opportunity for the Guyanese to renew their self-image and own their heritage.

Session - Jaune Toujours
In our studio, this Belgian cult band with its irrepressible sound, a mix of accordion, wind instruments, percussion and voice, exploring contemporary issues with strong social and cultural undertones.
