Capilla Flamenca is an ensemble based in Leuven, Belgium, specialising in 14th to 16th century music from Flanders and takes its name from the historical Flemish chapel (Capella Flamenca), the choir of the court chapel of the Emperor Charles V, Margaret's nephew.

Email 3Breakfast@bbc.co.uk with your music requests.


SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b04mb3k3)
Rob Cowan

Rob Cowan looks at how different composers besides Debussy have explored the story of Pelleas and Melisande, including Sibelius and Wallace.

The week's choral work is Herbert Howells' Te Deum, and Rob also starts a brief season of lesser known Russian symphonies, starting with Miaskovsky's Symphony No 15.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b04mb3k5)
Kika Markham

Michael Berkeley's guest is the actor Kika Markham, widow of Corin Redgrave.

'Actors by their nature are curious, fickle, insecure people: flirts. They should not live together.' So says Kika Markham; but she didn't follow her own advice; instead she fell in love with the actor Corin Redgrave - they were together for 33 years until his death in 2010.

Kika's own career began in the 1960s; she made her name in a series of television films, directed by Ken Loach, Dennis Potter, and then, for the cinema, by Francois Truffaut. Now in her early seventies, Kika Markham is still on television, playing the mother of Mr Selfridge in the successful ITV period drama.

In 'Private Passions' she talks to Michael Berkeley about the central role of music in her life. She remembers working with Francois Truffaut, and falling in love with him - against all advice. She chooses music by the French composer who wrote soundtracks for many of Truffaut's films, Georges Delerue.

But it's her marriage to Corin Redgrave that forms the heart of the programme. She talks movingly about living with Corin during the final years of his life, after he suffered a brain injury and lost a great deal of memory. There were huge challenges for them both. And one of the losses, at first, was music - he could not bear to listen. But there came a moment when Kika sat at the piano, and Corin responded to her playing.

Her choices include Beethoven's 'Spring' Violin Sonata, in which she used to accompany her father, the actor David Markham; a song from 'Guys and Dolls'; and the love duet from Handel's 'Rodelinda'.

Producer: Elizabeth Burke

A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.

Light

Cheryl Campbell and William Houston are the readers in a montage of music and speech inspired by ideas of light.

With music by composers including Haydn, Handel, Eric Whitacre, Thomas Adès and John Tavener.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b04mb49y)
The Gospel According to Joan

This is a personal, detailed portrayal of British theatre's favourite rebel, Joan Littlewood, and her legacy, on the 100th anniversary of her birth, with contributions from those who knew her best - actors and writers.
For playwright David Hare she offered 'a red hot reinterpretation of the world'. Howard Brenton learnt from her that 'you could do anything' on stage, and Southbank director Jude Kelly was blown away by the sheer vitality of her work. Joan Littlewood herself adds trenchant observations about the class struggle, the Arts Council, and 'giving actors hell'.
Actor Brian Murphy found himself pelted with chocolates by a Paris audience after a shattering performance of Littlewood's 'Oh What A Lovely War'. Nigel Hawthorne says he was almost destroyed by her piercing criticism. Richard Harris had to strip to the buff at his audition, while Barbara Windsor thought she was chatting to the theatre cleaner, only to find that the cleaner was Joan Littlewood and that her audition had already taken place in the foyer that Littlewood was scrubbing down.
The programme traces the development of the Company from its 1930s origins in Ewan MacColl's political street theatre, to the arrival, in the 1940s, of Jean Newlove (now a sparky 91 year old) who brought the Laban movement techniques that gave the Company its physical attack. Her assistant in the 1960s, director Philip Hedley, recalls how, for Littlewood, danger was her safety. She pushed every idea and every player to the limit.
And as for the famous cap that Joan Littlewood always wore, Brian Murphy remembers that when the play had gone well she threw it in the air, but when she wasn't happy, she threw it on the ground and stamped on it, and that sometimes happened during the interval.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b042bh3t)
Dylan Thomas: The Beach of Falesa

World premiere of an unfilmed screenplay by Dylan Thomas, newly adapted for radio for the centenary of his birth, and narrated as a 'Film for Voices' by Matthew Rhys.

Wiltshire arrives on an unnamed Pacific island hoping to trade in copra. But an encounter with rival trader Case leads to a macabre wedding. Shunned by the locals, Wiltshire sets out to uncover the secret behind Case's mysterious hold over the islanders, and the truth in the tales of the singing devils living deep in the bush.

Dylan Thomas adapted the short story of the same title by Robert Louis Stevenson to create this screenplay but it was never filmed, despite interest from Richard Burton. So this radio adaptation for the centenary of his birth is the world premiere of a work that blends some of the wordplay of Under Milk Wood with the brooding mystery of Heart of Darkness.

Producer Alison Hindell came across The Beach of Falesa when her stepdaughter moved into a new house in Sydney and found the published edition of the text amongst the remnants left behind by the previous owner.

Sound, Nigel Lewis

Alison Hindell has previously directed for Radio 4 both Under Milk Wood (which combined the archive recording of Burton as First Voice with a new cast) and The Art of Conversation, another Thomas premiere, being a previously unbroadcast radio script written during the war.

A BBC Cymru Wales production.
First broadcast in May 2014.

Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978)

Khachaturian Arrives in Moscow

His famous Sabre Dance was once the most frequently played piece of music in the world, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Aram Khachaturian.

Khachaturian's highly-colourful scores led him to be dubbed the "Rubens of Russian Music". On this 70th birthday he was showered with praise internationally including being hailed as the "Pride of Soviet Music". Yet Khachaturian was a late starter in the world of music. By the time he went to study it formally, he was already too old to focus on the piano. Instead he took up composition with Mikhail Gnessin, had private lessons with Reinhold Gliere, and then studied with Nickolai Myaskovsky at the Moscow Conservatoire, where his Trio made quite a stir. Khachaturian went on to have a significant impact upon Soviet music and he became famous around the world for his concertos, and also his ballets. However, he wasn't exempt from Stalin's purges and witch hunts. Khachaturian was accused of 'formalism', along with Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Myaskovsky. These once lauded composers now found themselves shunned. Once Stalin died however things began to change, and Khachaturian soon found himself as popular as ever. He was offered conducting tours around the world including trips to the UK, Mexico, and the USA. It was towards the end of his life that Khachaturian's Sabre Dance from one of this ballets, became the most frequently played work in the world.

Khachaturian was born in Georgia to Armenian parents. He considered himself to be a European Armenian and, although he lived most of his life in Moscow, the folk songs he heard as a young boy would always remain with him. Khachaturian went on to compose many songs of his own, and other vocal works, including his Ode of Joy.

As a student, Khachaturian played in the college brass band, although he frequently argued with the conductor. It was only after he moved to Moscow, to study, that Khachaturian heard a professional, classical piano recital for the first time. One of his student works, a Trio, made a big impression; Prokofiev took a copy with him to Paris to have it performed there.

MON 19:30 Opera on 3 (b04mb5cd)
Monteverdi's The Coronation of Poppea

Mary King introduces a performance of Monteverdi's historical drama, The Coronation of Poppea, recorded at the home of Opera North - the Grand Theatre, Leeds.

Based loosely on actual events in 1st-century AD Rome, The Coronation of Poppea charts the consuming erotic obsession of the Emperor Nero for the beautiful Poppea Sabina. Ruthlessly sweeping aside anyone who stands in the way of their union - including Nero's wife Octavia and the poet and philosopher Seneca - Nero and Poppea triumph over all their opponents and rejoice in one of the most sexually-charged love duets ever written.The moral ambivalence of one of opera's earliest masterpieces ensures that it remains to this day one of the most shocking and compelling.

Tim Albery, who directed the production of Handel's Giulio Cesare for Opera North in 2012, has prepared a new performing version of this dramma musicale about which almost everything is disputed, including its authorship. The cast is led by the American mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy (Poppea) and the British countertenor James Laing (Nerone). The conductor is Laurence Cummings, one of Britain's most exciting and versatile exponents of historically-informed performance.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b03h3t81)
The Existential Me

Paul Hart

Paul Hart is a young theatre director who last year directed Jean Paul Sartre's existentialist play 'Huis Clos' in London's West End. In the play three people are locked in a room with each other for eternity. This is damnation, for Hell, famously, is other people.

This year Hart was staff director of 'The Captain of Köpenick' at the National Theatre. In Carl Zuckmayer's play petty criminal Wilhelm Voigt (Antony Sher), released after fifteen years in prison, wanders 1910-Berlin in desperate pursuit of identity papers. When he picks up an abandoned military uniform in a fancy-dress shop he suddenly finds the city ready to obey his every command. But what he craves is official recognition that he exists.

Drawing on his experience of these productions, his other work in the theatre and his life as he establishes himself in his hazardous profession, Paul Hart considers the power and veracity of existentialist ideas.

Producer: Julian May

The Existential Me was first broadcast in November 2013 to mark the centenary of the birth of Albert Camus.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04mb5j6)
Tim Berne 60th Birthday

Jez Nelson presents a programme celebrating American saxophonist Tim Berne's 60th birthday, with live recordings from the Jazz on 3 archives.

Known for his uncompromising sound, Tim Berne first moved to New York in the 1970s to learn from saxophonist Julius Hemphill, whose gritty R&B style influenced Berne's own explorations of spiky melodies and shifting rhythms. Over the course of his career he has become one of the leading players in the city's avant-jazz scene, sharing stages with the likes of John Zorn and Bill Frisell while leading groups such as Big Satan with Tom Rainey and Marc Ducret as well as the BBC Trio with Jim Black and Nels Cline. Most recently, his Snakeoil quartet has become the saxophonist's main focus, receiving critical acclaim with two releases on the ECM label. The programme features highlights from concerts by Snakeoil and Big Satan, as well as Tim's Hard Cell Trio and a BBC Radio 3 commission for his Science Friction band in collaboration with the Arte Quartet.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Chris Elcombe.

His famous Sabre Dance was once the most frequently played piece of music in the world, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Aram Khachaturian.

By the time Khachaturian composed his First Symphony, he was finishing his course at the Moscow Conservatoire. He decided to stay on as a postgraduate student, studying with Myaskovsky. He supplemented his income by composing music for the cinema. This included a film project for the Armenian State Film Company, called Pepo, and also a historical and revolutionary film entitled Zangezur.

Around this time, Khachaturian first encountered Nina, who would become his second wife. Khachaturian recalled that, when he first met Nina, "happiness walked in". Happiness became the name of one of Khachaturian's ballets, later reworked and called Gayane, which includes his famous Sabre Dance.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04mb6ch)
Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978)

War Years

His famous Sabre Dance was once the most frequently played piece of music in the world, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Aram Khachaturian.

The writer Alexei Tolstoy became a huge fan of Khachaturian after hearing the composer's music for his stage production, Masquerade, . However, the popularity of Masquerade was shortlived, due to the invasion of Russia by Germany. One work which did go on to have a huge international appeal during the war years was Khachaturian's Violin Concerto, which won the composer a Stalin Prize amounting to 50,000 roubles.

During World War Two, Khachaturian, like many other composers, was evacuated to the country where he was encouraged to continue composing for the national cause. It was during this period that Khachaturian composed his Symphony No 2, which he said "embodied everything that the people think and feel today". The symphony was seen as a requiem of wrath, and a protest against war and violence.

In 1906 Rachmaninoff and his family escaped a politically turbulent Russia for Dresden, where he experienced one of the most productive periods of his life. Among its first fruits was his Second Symphony, a work with emotional power, vital rhythms and sumptuous textures. Three years later came his Third Piano Concerto, a combination of lyricism and dazzling virtuosity.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b03zdbnd)
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.

Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978)

A Fall from Favour

His famous Sabre Dance was once the most frequently played piece of music in the world, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Aram Khachaturian.

Khachaturian was accustomed to having lavish praise heaped upon him. So it came as quite a surprise when, in 1948, he was charged with the crime of 'formalism', along with his composer colleagues, Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Myaskovsky. Stalin had instigated a purge of the arts and Khachaturian was on the hit list. Suddenly, his music was out of favour. One of the works cited by Khachaturian's accusers was his Symphony No 3. At the end of its premiere, the audience sat in stony silence.

Khachaturian did his best to continue working, including further film projects. His music for the epic, Battle of Stalingrad, incorporated Russian folk music. By the early 1950s, more opportunities were coming Khachaturian's way, including the chance to work on another ballet. This would be his score for Spartacus, which includes his famous Adagio of Spartacus and Phrygia.

Emmy van Deurzen

In this final essay, psychotherapist Emmy Van Deurzen reflects on how existentialist philosophy has shaped her life and work. She grew up in the Netherlands, but went as a student to France, where she read philosophy and later studied psychotherapy. Her work in the two fields led her to want to follow an existentialist path- to pursue a form of therapy which was rooted in philosophy. She now lives and teaches in England, where she works with clients on using moments of crisis in their lives for positive action.

Producer: Emma Kingsley

In 1953 Stalin died and those composers, such as Khachaturian, who had previously been charged with the crime of formalism, now started to speak out for greater creative freedom. Khachaturian was even invited, along with other members of the intelligentsia, to a reception at the Kremlin. In the spirit of this new democracy, Khachaturian composed his Ballad of the Motherland.

The 1960s were a busy time for Khachaturian, including many conducting trips abroad. He managed to meet both Ernest Hemingway and Charlie Chaplin on his travels. Life back home, in Soviet Russia, was also very busy. Much of his time was spent serving on official committees. In the final years of his life, Khachaturian composed two sets of trilogies. One was a set of sonatas for solo string instruments. The other was a trio of concerto rhapsodies, including one for cello and orchestra. In 1976 Khachaturian was devastated by the death of his wife and, despite his plans to compose a fourth symphony, just two years later he also died.

Karen Armstrong, one of the world's leading thinkers about religion, gives the Free Thinking Lecture, arguing that, in the current global situation, a recognition of how little we know is the only way to peace.

She was appointed by Kofi Annan to join the United Nations group 'The Alliance of Civilisation' and, in 2008, won the TED prize. She is the author of more than 20 books on faith, including The Case For God and Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence.

She talks to Rana Mitter and takes questions from the audience.

Recorded earlier this evening in front of an audience at BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of Ideas 2014 from Sage Gateshead.

Producer: Fiona McLean.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b04mbm2t)
Mary Ann Kennedy - Ewan McLennan in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, plus a live studio session with Scottish singer Ewan McLennan.

Ewan McLennan's last album was chosen by Mojo magazine as one of the top ten albums of 2010 - his new album,''Stories Still Untold', has just been released. He was brought up in Edinburgh, and was classically trained on the piano - however, his family was imbued with Scottish folk culture, and his ideas on introducing folk-style improvisation into Chopin was not well received by his teachers. He then turned to classical guitar, and worked up a formidable technique. All this produced an individual approach to folk music, reviving sometimes well known, sometimes long-forgotten songs and presenting them in a new light. He also writes his own songs, reflecting present-day concerns: he says, "One of the songs from my album, 'The Last Bird to Sing', is about the ex-soldier and conscientious objector that I got to know ; Joe Glenton. Not only is his story inspiring but it occurred to me it's one that has been told, in one form or another, in traditional folk songs through the ages.".
