Fauré: Piano Quartet no.1 in C minor (op. 15)

Two favourite works - by Fauré and Ravel - are framed by chamber arrangements of Debussy's revolutionary orchestral masterpiece, and of Berlioz's nocturnal song-cycle, performed in a version by one of the many composers with whom the Nash has had a long relationship - David Matthews.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b04lpmc4)
Bernard Rands at 80

Ivan Hewett presents an 80th birthday tribute to one of today's leading composers, Bernard Rands. Once described as, 'a composer with a poet's sensibility and a painterly love of colour and line', Rands has for many years been resident in the USA. However, he was born in the UK in Sheffield so it is especially appropriate that tonight's recordings were made at the Royal Northern College of Music's celebration of his music held in June.
Rands has held teaching positions at many leading universities and music schools across the US and is himself a onetime pupil of Dallapiccola, Berio and Boulez. His brand of post-Impressionist elegance combined with rhythmic vigour has resulted in residencies with many of the United States' top orchestras. Rands says that he writes his music 'to be as honest and as deeply personal as I can', and this is evident in his 'Chains like the sea'. The work is inspired by a poem by Dylan Thomas, as Rands uses the sounds of bells to map out life, from birth to death.
And in Composers' Rooms, Sara Mohr-Pietsch explores the urban workspace which the composer Emily Hall shares with a community of other musicians and visual artists.

Bernard Rands: Danza petrificada
BBC Philharmonic, Clark Rundell (conductor)

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b04lpqnb)
David Lan

David Lan is a huge force in theatre in Britain, indeed internationally. But how he got there is surprising. Brought up in Cape Town, he began his career as an anthropologist, living for two years in a remote area of Zimbabwe in order to study spirit magic. He went on to become a playwright and documentary director, and he's written the libretto for two operas. One critic recently described Lan as a 'Diaghilev-like figure' because of his flair for bringing artists together. As Artistic Director of the Young Vic, he led the £12.5m theatre rebuild - and has over the last 14 years established a reputation both for spotting new talent, and for persuading directors from all over the world to come to London to direct wildly inventive productions. His latest role, announced this year, is Consulting Artistic Director for the New York Arts Centre, which is still being built, on the site of the 9/11 attacks.

In Private Passions, David Lan talks about his upbringing in South Africa, and how he learnt to love music as a young boy in his grandmother's shop, which sold bicycles - and piles of old 78s. He describes his time as an anthropologist in Zimbabwe, living in a remote and dangerous part of the country just after the war of independence. And he pays tribute to the relationship at the heart of his life, with distinguished playwright Nicholas Wright, whom Lan met when he was only 17.

Music includes Beethoven, Shostakovich, Paul Simon, Nina Simone, a Bach Prelude played by jazz pianist Keith Jarrett, and the overture to Mozart's Magic Flute - played on marimbas.

Lucie Skeaping introduces a programme of sacred choral music by the German composer Hans-Leo Hassler. The music was specially recorded for the programme by the BBC Singers, conducted by Andrew Griffiths.

Hassler was highly influenced by the two Gabrielis and by Orlando di Lassus. He wrote for both the Roman Catholic and Lutheran churches, although he himself was a Protestant. As well as his music for the church, he also wrote a large quantity of secular music, including Italian madrigals in five or six voices, instrumental works and dance songs that are highly rhythmic.

First broadcast December 2012.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b01jql7p)
The Full Montaigne

Jim Broadbent plays Michel de Montaigne, whose 'Essays' entertainingly ponder sex, marriage, animals, memory, and cruelty in an attempt to answer one question: 'How to live?' With music including Bach, Ligeti, Mendelssohn and Randy Newman.

Montaigne drew on a lifetime of experience and observation, but far from inscrutable musings, the Essays are often earthy and direct - at once scatological and astute, philosophical and witty, playful and profound.

The Essays were first published in 1580 and are positively Shakespearian, both in their range and in their humanism. Montaigne speaks as himself, directly and in clear prose, and says the most extraordinarily heretical things. Some of his arguments include the notion that human beings are on a par with the animals and that they are just a tiny part of Nature, all of which deserves equally to be respected and that death is just the end of life and it is life which is the important thing.

In 1676 the Vatican caught up with Montaigne the best part of a century after his death when the Essays were put on its index of prohibited books, where they stayed until 1854. The Essays have been continuously available for the last four and a half centuries not only because they are engaging and entertaining but also because of the spark of self-revelation they so often generate.
In this programme, seasoned Montaignistes will find themselves recognising an old friend, and those coming to the Essays for the first time will find a new one.

David Papp, producer

First broadcast June 2012.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b04lpqnj)
Enter the Dragon: Chinese Theatre in the 21st Century

Rana Mitter travels to Beijing to explore the recent flourishing of theatre in China.

Through interviews with leading Chinese playwrights, directors and producers, he examines Chinese theatre's re-invention as an art-form of youthful, urban cool.

Drama has been a hugely important force in Chinese culture for centuries, but spoken word drama as western audiences understand it, only took root in the early 20th century. Released from the restrictions of the Cultural Revolution, the latest generation of theatre practitioners in China has breathed new life into Chinese theatre, led by the charismatic director and playwright Meng Jinghui (director of the cult hit Rhinoceros In Love, written by his wife, Liao Yimei - and broadcast on BBC Radio 3 later this evening).

Rana attempts to define this specifically Chinese version of experimental theatre - dubbed by academic Rossella Ferrari as 'pop avant-garde'.

Featuring interviews with Meng Jingui, Wang Chong, Liao Yimei, Rossella Ferrari and Claire Conceison.

Readings by David Acton, Monty d'Inverno, Roslyn Hill and Jason Wong.

Produced by Emma Harding.

Angela Hewitt, piano

A runaway success in China after its first staging in 1999, Liao Yimei's play is a dark romance about a rhinoceros keeper, Malu, who falls in love with his beautiful neighbour, Mingming.

Today is the launch of a two-week survey of Sibelius's Symphonies performed by the BBC Philharmonic with conductor John Storgards, as part of Afternoon on 3's Nordic and Baltic season.

This week numbers 1 to 3 - Sibelius makes his name, and his career takes off in the early years of the twentieth century - these first three symphonies are bold and confident works.

Also running through the week are a series of works by French composer Gabriel Pierné. He succeeded César Franck as organist of St.Clotilde in Paris, and conducted the premiere of Stravinsky's ballet "The Firebird" in Paris in 1910. His music is filled with the ambience of fin-de-siècle Paris. Pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet joins the BBC Philharmonic and Juanjo Mena in these recordings.

MON 19:30 Opera on 3 (b04lprss)
Rossini's Moses in Egypt

Christopher Cook presents Welsh National Opera's new production of Rossini's Moses in Egypt, given at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff. Although not as well known as the Barber of Seville, La Cenerentola, or William Tell, Moses in Egypt is among Rossini's greatest musical achievements. First heard in Naples in 1818, Rossini's telling of the Old Testament story pulls focus between the epic and the intimate, as the story of an entire people persecuted by a cruel tyrant is juxtaposed with the forbidden love of two young people on either side of a religious divide.

The Pharaoh refuses to free the Hebrews from slavery and allow them to leave for the Promised Land. Moses, with God's help, brings down plagues on the Egyptians until eventually he and his people are freed. But Pharaoh's son, Osiris, is in love with a Hebrew girl, Elcia, and he is punished when he attempts to have Moses killed.
The Hebrews reach the Red Sea and are rescued from the pursuing Egyptians by divine intervention.

Characters (in order of singing)

Osiride / Osiris Pharaoh's son.....David Alegret (tenor)
Faraone / Pharaoh..... Andrew Foster-Williams (bass-baritone)
Amaltea Pharaoh's wife..... Christine Rice (mezzo-soprano)
Mosè / Moses..... Miklós Sebestyén (bass-baritone)

MON 22:45 The Essay (b03q5bqz)
The Book that Changed Me

Alan Johnson on David Copperfield

Former Home Secretary Alan Johnson describes how "David Copperfield" by Charles Dickens mirrored his poor and troubled childhood in West London. After the death of his mother, the discovery of this great novel gave him the hope to build a happy and secure adult life. "I was thirteen years old and had read lots of books but nothing like this complex saga; so moving, so emotionally intertwined. I loved Peggoty, laughed at Micawber, loathed Uriah Heep. And I cried. Tears that never fell for my mother fell for Ham."
Producer: Smita Patel.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04lprx0)
Evan Parker 70th and John Butcher 60th Birthday Sessions

Jez Nelson presents solo sessions, especially recorded for Jazz on 3, from two of the UK's greatest living saxophonists: Evan Parker and John Butcher.

70 this year, Evan Parker has been at the heart of the British and international free-jazz scene for half a century. Working on both sides of the Atlantic in ensembles both large and small, his collaborations read like a roll call of improvised music's great and good: Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton, Derek Bailey, Alexander Von Schlippenbach, Kenny Wheeler, and recently, electronic artist Squarepusher. Yet he's best loved for his solo playing. 'One of the music's greatest living instrumentalists' according to The Times, Parker uses a range of complex techniques (circular breathing, split tonguing, overblowing, multiphonics, cross-pattern fingering) to create organic, immersive and hypnotic musical worlds.

2014 also sees John Butcher turn 60. Originally a physicist studying Quarks, Butcher left academia in the 1980s to form the London Improvising Ensemble with pianist Chris Burn, as well as a soprano saxophone quartet with Evan Parker. His solo playing explores electronic techniques like multi-tracking as well as the outer limits of feedback and extreme acoustics: "Some of the best bits come when you're playing near the edge of your control and knowledge. When the music's working, I think it creates its own connections and shapes that are more interesting than ones you might have tried to consciously impose."

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Miranda Hinkley.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b04lpxj2)
Landmark: Proust's A la recherche du temps perdu

Tonight's edition of Free Thinking is devoted to one of the landmarks of European literature -- Marcel Proust's gigantic novel, A la recherche du temps perdu which is perhaps best known in English as In Search of Lost Time.

Matthew Sweet gathers together four Proust fans from very different backgrounds - the Pulitzer prize winning novelist, Jane Smiley, the psychotherapist, Jane Haynes, Christopher Prendergast, who has edited the latest translation of the book and from France, the writer, Marie Darrieussecq. The actor Peter Marinker tackles the difficult task of giving an English voice to Proust.

You can download this programme by searching under the Arts and Ideas podcasts and the broadcast date.

The novel is a modernist masterpiece which offers a symphonic account of what it meant to be alive in France as the 19th century became the 20th. To read it is to explore the mechanics of human sensibility -- it is comic, tragic, discursive, scholarly, obscene, vicious and heartfelt but above all profoundly self aware. Sometimes it reads like a journal or a gossip column; sometimes like autobiography; from times like a scholarly monograph: and often as delicious parody; the coils of Proust's language slows time right down and tempts the reader ever further into the maze of self examination.
Human attachment lies at the heart of the book - whether it's a young boy's love of his grandmother, a grown man's obsessive sexual interest in a young woman or the self deceptions of narcissim. But these are just a few of the book's facets as the mind of its narrator moves from the marriage of his bourgeois family's neighbours in the country, the Swanns, to the glamour and snobbery of the aristocracy in Paris.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b03q5gkb)
The Book that Changed Me

Tracey Thorn on The Female Eunuch

Singer Tracey Thorn describes how she as a rebellious teenager she seized on the feminist classic "The Female Eunuch" by Germaine Greer. "It seemed brand new, and it spoke to me of things I'd long thought and felt without ever having words or names for," she says. She explains how the book was a deep influence on the lyrics she wrote for her band Everything but the Girl. But now she is herself a mother, she finds herself questioning Greer's contemptuous dismissal of parenting. "As feminists, I feel we are more forgiving now than Greer was; more inclusive, less dismissive, and perhaps that's because greater freedoms have brought with them greater liberties for us to be so. It's not such a threat now to admit to being happily married and enjoying motherhood when we are not utterly constrained and defined by these roles."
Producer: Smita Patel.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b04lpxrc)
Tuesday - Verity Sharp

Verity Sharp's selection tonight includes multi-part folk songs from the ethnic minorities of China's Yunnan province, Jordi Savall and Montserrat Figueras's exquisite Moments in Time, and the spirited fiddle playing of Nick Wyke and Becki Driscoll.

And, as a new book calls on historians to take a more active role in debates over global inequality, climate change and governance, Rana Mitter is joined by The History Manifesto's co-author, David Armitage, Chris Skidmore MP and historian, and Lucy Delap, Director of History and Policy to discuss how and when history lost its place at the top table, the uses of micro-histories versus the long duree, and how new technology to handle big data might harness them both to help decision-takers and policy makers.


Presenter: Rana Mitter
Producer: Jacqueline Smith.

The Book that Changed Me

Simon McBurney on And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos

Actor/director Simon McBurney of Theatre de Complicite describes how John Berger's "And Our Faces, My Heart, Brief as Photos" plays with ideas of connection, memory, narrative and mortality which are essential to his theatrical work. "Berger digs in the vulnerable earth of human experience, and joins the fragments he uncovers with an eye as sure as an astronomer, a gesture as gentle as a carpenter," McBurney says. This slim work has been a point of reference for his art and his life.
Producer: Smita Patel.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b04lpsq0)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Rossini - Aureliano in Palmira

Today's Opera Matinee is by Rossini, his opera seria "Aureliano in Palmira" a historical tale of Love and War between the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (Aureliano), and Queen Zenobia of Palmyra, a city in Syria.

For such a rarity (Aureliano in Palmira was a flop at its first outing, never re-staged in Rossini's lifetime and disappearing almost without trace), a great deal of the music sounds familiar - very familiar in fact. From the Overture there is more than a nagging sense that you've heard this before somewhere and that is because Rossini re-cycled his forlorn historical drama into one of his comic masterpieces "The Barber of Seville" (which also flopped on its first outing, but history has been kinder to it). So the quality of the music is assured.

And the setting of the Rossini Festival Pesaro is the most sympathetic place to hear again this original score with the outstanding pairing of tenor Michael Spyres as the Roman emperor Aureliano and soprano Jessica Pratt as the Palmyran queen Zenobia.

We hear Act 1 today and Act 2 is tomorrow

2pm Opera Matinee
Rossini: Aureliano in Palmira - opera seria in 2 Acts

From the 2014 Pesaro Festival

Act 1
Act 1 begins in the temple in Palmyra. Queen Zenobia, her lover Arsace, Prince of Persia, and the citizens of Palmyra are praying for deliverance from the Romans, led by the emperor Marcus Aurelius (Aureliano), who are approaching the city gates.

Battle is joined outside the city and the Romans defeat the Palmyrans and capture Arsace, who declares his love for Zenobia to Aureliano. Zenobia tries to negotiate the release of her captured citizens, but Aureliano is adamant and prepares to enter Palmyra itself.

Zenobia prepares the city for one last desperate defence, knowing that her lover Arsace is already in the hands of Aureliano.

Aureliano ..... Michael Spyres (tenor)
Zenobia ..... Jessica Pratt (soprano)
Arsace ..... Lena Belkina (mezzo-soprano)
Publia ..... Raffaella Lupinacci (mezzo-soprano)
Oraspe ..... Dempsey C'Rivera (tenor)

Malorie Blackman on The Color Purple

Children's Laureate Malorie Blackman on how Alice Walker's novel "The Color Purple" legitimised her need to be a writer. She writes how the novel was "about the triumph of the human spirit". Reading it for the first in her early 20s it "blasted open a door which I thought was locked and barred to me. Actually it blasted open a door which I didn't appreciate even existed. A door that could lead to a writing career of my own... this book and its author showed that it was possible for me to not only be an author but to have my own voice."

Radio 3 New Generation Artists

Episode 4

Clemency Burton-Hill introduces the last programme of the week showcasing the talents of Radio 3's starry line-up of New Generation Artists. Now in its 16th year, the New Generation Artists scheme brings listeners the very best of emerging British and international talent.

FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b04lpsq2)
Sibelius's Symphonies

Sibelius Symphony No 3

The second act of Rossini's opera Aureliano in Palmira from this year's Pesaro Festival.

A real Rossini rarity, an opera seria that flopped but which Rossini then re-cycled into his comedy "The Barber of Seville" (which also flopped, but which posterity has been kinder to). There's no doubting the quality of the music, so it must all have been in the performance, because the plot is the usual confusion.

Reviews of this production singled out for praise tenor Michael Spyres (Aureliano) and soprano Jessica Pratt (Zenobia). The ensemble is led by the American bel canto specialist, Will Crutchfield.

And the BBC Philharmonic conclude this week's part of the Sibelius Symphony Cycle with No.3 in C . Numbers 4 to 7 next week.

With Penny Gore

2pm
Rossini: Aureliano in Palmira - opera seria in 2 Acts

From the 2014 Pesaro Festival

Act 2
Palmyra has fallen to the Romans - led by Aureliano (Marcus Aurelius), and he generously offers the defeated queen Zenobia the choice to rule alongside him. Zenobia's lover Arsace, the general of the Palmyran army has escaped, but returns to the city to rescue his queen and lover. The pair are caught and brought before Aureliano who at first sentences them to spend the rest of their lives in separate prison cells, before relenting and - after they swear loyalty to Rome - letting the pair rule in Palmyra after all.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b04lpxd6)
BBC Symphony Orchestra - Strauss, Grieg, Sibelius, Stravinsky

Live from the Barbican

Presented by Ian Skelly

Sakari Oramo conducts the BBC Symphony Orchestra in music by Strauss, Sibelius & Stravinsky - his ballet score The Firebird. Javier Perianes joins for Grieg's great Piano Concerto.

Expect an explosion of colour and character with Strauss's vaulting portrait of the lothario Don Juan and the spangled exoticism of Stravinsky's fairy-tale ballet The Firebird. In between comes Sibelius's brooding, atmospheric tone-poem En Saga, which he said contained 'the whole of my youth'. He asked 'Can one think of anything other than Finland while listening to it?' The acclaimed young Spanish virtuoso Javier Perianes, described as 'a poet at the keyboard', joins Sakari Oramo in Grieg's famous concerto.

Strauss: Don Juan
Grieg: Piano Concerto

8.15pm Interval: The dark and brooding keyboard music of Manuel Blasco de Nebra - heir to the genius of Scarlatti, and a native of Spain from where the BBC Symphony Orchestra recently returned on tour with performer Javier Perianes - we hear the pianist here with the composer's Pastorela No. 6 in E minor. Plus choral music by Sibelius and his work Rakastava [The lover] Op.14, and the BBC Singers with Soprano Alison Smart and baritone Stephen Charlesworth.

8.35
Sibelius: En Saga
Stravinsky: The Firebird - Suite (1945)

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)
Javier Perianes (piano).

Canadian folk quartet The Barr Brothers perform from their new album 'Sleeping Operator' (Secret City), and talk to Ian about how to write about love when you give up giving up on it.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03q5gkl)
The Book that Changed Me

Luke Johnson on The Magic of Thinking Big

Serial entrepreneur Luke Johnson celebrates the simple but powerful messages of the self-help classic, "The Magic of Thinking Big" by David J Schwartz." "His book is not great literature," he admits. "Indeed, it is popular psychology at its most obvious." However, Johnson defends its power as "basic but also profound" - and it has influenced his huge success with a series of household name businesses.
Producer: Smita Patel.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b04lpxrk)
