SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b043p4qx)
Emma Bridgewater

Nearly 30 years ago Emma Bridgewater, a young English graduate, went shopping for a cup and saucer for her mother's birthday present. She couldn't find anything she liked - so she designed one herself, and enjoyed the process so much that she installed a kiln in her London flat. That small kiln has grown into a company with an annual turnover of 11 million pounds - and has revitalised the old potteries industry of Stoke-on-Trent. Her teapots and mugs covered in polka dots, hens, dogs and birds have become a staple of the middle class kitchen, symbols of cosiness and comfort.

In Private Passions, Emma Bridgewater talks to Michael Berkeley about our yearning for home - all the more intense as working lives become overwhelmingly demanding. She reveals the tragedy at the heart of her life - her mother's riding accident, which left her gravely brain-damaged but still alive, for 22 years. Under the pressure of that sorrow, Emma Bridgewater describes how work became a marvellous escape. She chooses music to remind her of her mother, and which consoled her after her mother's death last Christmas. She talks too about the adventure of setting up her business in Stoke-on-Trent, bringing derelict factories back to life - but missing her four children as she spent hour upon hour on the road.

Her music choices include Pergolesi, Purcell, Kurt Weill, Boccherini, a carol by Benjamin Britten - and the UK Theme Tune, which used to start the day on Radio 4 as she was getting up early to begin work.

Produced by Elizabeth Burke. A Loftus production, for BBC Radio 3.

There are reflections too on Captain Cook's cartography, a farcical description of map-making from Lewis Carroll's 'Sylvie and Bruno Concluded', and poems on mapping the next world by John Donne and Joy Harjo.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b04xrq3w)
Zola in Norwood

In July 1898, one of France's most famous novelists Emile Zola was sentenced to a 3000 francs fine and a year's imprisonment for libelling the military court in his famous public letter 'J'Accuse', written in defence of Alfred Dreyfus. Rather than serve the sentence, this international star fled to the unlikely refuge of suburban south London. There he stayed in hotels and lodgings being minded by his long-suffering translator, Ernest Vizetelly. Michael Rosen explores the political, literary, and personal tensions and overlaps in Zola's life during his eleven month exile.

At the outset Zola and his friends were very concerned that he could be extradited but even when it became clear that he wouldn't be, he kept a low profile - unlike the time he came to London five years earlier when he was feted by thousands. During his stay, he wrote a novel ('Fécondité' - 'Fruitfulness'), a ghost story, many letters and a memoir, between going on regular cycling trips and taking hundreds of photos of the new suburbs in Surrey and Crystal Palace. He observed the English and lamented his isolation. Thanks to his wife Alexandrine's self-sacrifice, first his lover Jeanne and their children came to see him, followed by Alexandrine later.

Michael Rosen follows in Zola's footsteps from the Gare du Nord, Paris to London, Victoria and to Zola's places of stay. He discovers contrasting views of Zola in the Press and examines Zola's literary trajectory at the end of his life. Anton Lesser and Harriet Walter are the voices of Emile and Alexandrine Zola.

Many of the photographs taken by Emile Zola when he was in England and on view in our online gallery, can be seen in 'Emile Zola: Photographer in Norwood South London 1898-1899', published by The Norwood Society.

The music used in the programme is ‘Rambouillet: Nuptial’ taken from Promenades (1893) by Albéric Magnard and played by Stephanie McCallum.

Producer: Emma-Louise Williams.
A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b04xrq9n)
A Traveller's Guide to Paterson

American poet William Carlos Williams's poly-vocal epic poem 'Paterson' is a portrait of his favoured city in New Jersey where he worked as a doctor. Michael Symmons Roberts presents a portrait of the same city today in reportage and documentary alongside a fictional drama which responds to events described in Williams's poem.

Roberts travels to New Jersey to meet William Carlos Williams's family, friends, academics and community figures to explore Paterson and the stories in the poem. His new writing, commentary and interviews all arise from a direct engagement with the city and the poem, responding to the place as it stands - politically and economically.

Recorded at a political and economic turning point for the USA, Michael Symmons Roberts tests today's Paterson against the place Williams knew, and asks if the poet's warnings about the effects of modernization and technology were prescient, or merely nostalgic. Walking the same streets, visiting the same districts, calling at the same buildings, this programme opens up a great 20th-century poetic masterwork and at the same time create a new dramatic work, reportage and documentary - a new 'Paterson'.

William Carlos Williams wasn't from Paterson. He was an outsider. Michael is also a different kind of outsider who, like Williams is interested in the bigger picture - the state of the nation, looking through the intimate lens of small-town America to comment on it

Paterson is a mid-sized industrial town in New Jersey, USA. In 1963, the great American poet William Carlos Williams published his masterwork. It had taken him almost three decades to write and consisted of five books of poetry, reported speech, fragmentary reflection and conversations with other Patersonites, including Williams's fellow poet Allen Ginsberg. It is a truly epic piece of work, still regarded as a jewel of modernist writing.
Williams knew the city intimately, not just as a poet, but as a father, a friend, a doctor working in the community. Turning his back on the grand abstractions and international perspectives of his fellow modernists Eliot and Pound, Williams dug into what he called 'the local'.
Paterson is a poetic monument to, and personification of, the city of Paterson, New Jersey, which was Williams's hometown. Its three driving themes are Paterson the Man, Paterson the City, and Identity. At the heart of the poem is an in-depth questioning of the burgeoning process of modernization and its effects.
A half century on, the town of Paterson has a population just under 150,000. It has large communities of Puerto Ricans, Bangladeshis and a Muslim population substantial enough to warrant Muslim holidays for all the town's public schools.

As with many American cities, recession, unemployment , crime and social unrest in Paterson have grown in recent years.

All of this is explored in A Traveller's Guide to Paterson.

Monday - Sarah Walker with Leanne Benjamin

Discover definitive recordings of the greatest classical music with your trusted guide, Sarah Walker. She's joined by former principal ballerina at the Royal Ballet Leanne Benjamin

9am
A selection of music including '5 Reasons to Love'...British film music. This week Sarah champions an art form that has seen contributions from leading and neglected British composers of the 20th century, from Vaughan Williams to William Walton. It's a genre that often struggles to be taken seriously, perhaps because in its most perfect form it's hidden from view, the audience not noticing that it brings colour to a black-and-white classic, or highlights emotional moods and landscapes, surreptitiously setting the scene.

9.30am
Mapping the Music. Take part in our daily musical challenge and identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is Leanne Benjamin, former principal ballerina at the Royal Ballet. Leanne shares a selection of the music she danced to during her career, discussing her memories of choreographer Kenneth MacMillan and offering a personal insight into the world of a ballet dancer.

10.30am
This week Sarah's featured artist is Emma Kirkby, one of the world's most renowned early music specialists, noted for her pure, crystal-like tone and vocal agility. Sarah showcases her repertoire including Mozart's Exsultate Jubilate, Purcell's Evening Hymn and Dowland's songs.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04xrsl0)
Orlande de Lassus (1532-1594)

Abduction

A cosmopolitan composer who became so famous he was known as "The divine Orlando", this week Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of Orlande de Lassus.

Born in Mons, around 1532, Lassus first came to public attention when singing at the local church of St. Nicholas. His voice was said to be so beautiful that he was abducted a number of times, and ended up in the service of the Viceroy of Sicily. After he turned eighteen Lassus, took a job in Naples and then went on to become Director of Music at St. John Lateran in Rome. Lassus remained in Rome for a short period, before making his way to Antwerp where he instigated the first publication of his music. His reputation grew and he was soon offered a job in Munich, at the Court of Duke Albrecht V. Lassus remained there for over thirty years where musical life at court flourished, and his name spread all over Europe. He was invited to compose music for the coronation of the King of Bohemia and he also received honours from the Habsburg Emperor Maximilian II, and the Pope. His fame was such that the King of France even tried to poach Lassus for his own court. Lassus prolifically composed in almost every genre of music, and was a master of every style he touched.

Sacred music was important to Lassus, and he composed over forty settings of the Mass, including his Missa Susanne un jour, which was based on one of his own songs. After working in Rome, the young composer toured England, Paris, and then settled in Antwerp for a few years, where he gave music lessons to the nobility. It was in Antwerp that he published his first compositions, in 1555, including the motet Audi dulcis amica. His music was well received and, in the same year, he also published a set of madrigals in Venice, which included Solo e pensoso, and Mia benigna fortuna.

Janine Jansen (violin)
Itamar Golan (piano)

Composed in honour of David Oistrakh's 60th birthday, this is Shostakovich's only violin sonata, a haunting work composed long after his two concertos for the instrument. Ravel's sonata is also a late work, contrasting sparse textures with a foray into American blues, the sound world which was all around him in 1920s Paris.

Tzigane was composed for the renowned Hungarian violinist Jelly d'Arányi, and appropriates the gypsy folk style. 'This Tzigane must be a piece of great virtuosity', he wrote while working on the score.

c.9.00pm by Adopt a Composer - The Weymouth-based Quangle Wangle Choir work with Jenni Pinnock on her Quangle Quadrille.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b04xrslb)
Venice Unravelled

At Home

Writer Polly Coles reads At Home, the first of her essays about some of the ways in which Venetians and others have adapted to live in 21st-century Venice - one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Moving to Venice with her family for several years gave her a resident's view of a city she loves and despairs of in equal measure. Once the most cosmopolitan city in Europe, nowadays it seems little more than a stage-set for the tourist industry. But Venice will always be more than the most idealized city in the world.

In this essay, Polly looks at what home and house mean to different types of Venetian residents in modern day Venice. From the aristocrat in her Palazzo to the stowaway Moldovan in a broom cupboard, she wonders if anyone can survive in Venice without the tourist dollar.

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b04xrsld)
The Bad Plus

Cult US trio The Bad Plus perform at the 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival.

Throughout their career The Bad Plus have traversed ground from Stravinsky to David Bowie, Queen to jazz standards - but whether joyously reimagining pop classics or outing their own compositions, the band's iconoclastic sound has always remained a product of its three distinct players: pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Dave King. For many fans their famed cover versions acted as the gateway, but here performing to a sold-out room at East London's cavernous Village Underground club, The Bad Plus focus almost entirely on originals from their latest album Inevitable Western. Be it twisting rhythmic workouts, anthemic piano hammering or freewheeling improvisation, it's a performance delivered with a telepathic conviction born of many years on stage together.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Miranda Hinkley.

Orlande de Lassus (1532-1594)

The Court in Munich

A cosmopolitan composer who became so famous he was known as "The divine Orlando", this week Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of Orlande de Lassus.

Lassus had settled in Antwerp where he taught music to the nobility. He also published his Opus 1 set which included the chanson, Je l'ayme bien. The following year in 1556, Lassus brought out a second publication in Antwerp of motets in five and six parts. This first book of motets included both his Mirabile Mysterium and Fremuit spiritus Jesu.

In that same year of 1556, Lassus received a summons to go and work for the Duke of Bavaria in Munich, where he was employed as a tenor in the chapel choir. Duke Albrecht V was determined to develop music at court, and Lassus went on to take a lead role in this. Upon arriving in Munich, Lassus quickly settled in, publishing a set of madrigals including Quel chiaro sol, and Vostro fui. The Duke became quite possessive over Lassus's compositions, in particular a set of Penitential Psalms which the Duke prohibited Lassus from publishing.

He and fellow-Eliot biographer, Lyndall Gordon join Anne McElvoy to work out Eliot's enduring power and appeal while the winner of this year's TS Eliot prize David Harsent reads from his collection Fire Songs.

Allan Ropper is a US neurologist who has written a book called Reaching Down The Rabbit Hole -- his description of what it's like to make a diagnosis where minds and lives hang in the balance. He talks to Anne McElvoy about the mixture of intuition and medical knowledge that every brain doctor needs. They are joined by Brian Hurwitz, Professor of Medicine and the Arts at King's College London to discuss the role of case histories over time and new importance being attached to narrative medicine.

Discover definitive recordings of the greatest classical music with your trusted guide, Sarah Walker. She's joined by former principal ballerina at the Royal Ballet Leanne Benjamin

9am
A selection of music including '5 Reasons to Love'...British film music. This week Sarah champions an art form that has seen contributions from leading and neglected British composers of the 20th century, from Vaughan Williams to William Walton. It's a genre that often struggles to be taken seriously, perhaps because in its most perfect form it's hidden from view, the audience not noticing that it brings colour to a black-and-white classic, or highlights emotional moods and landscapes, surreptitiously setting the scene.

9.30am
Find the fourth. Take part in our daily musical challenge: spot the theme linking three pieces of music and identify the missing fourth.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is Leanne Benjamin, former principal ballerina at the Royal Ballet. Leanne shares a selection of the music she danced to during her career, discussing her memories of choreographer Kenneth MacMillan and offering a personal insight into the world of a ballet dancer.

This week Sarah's featured artist is Emma Kirkby, one of the world's most renowned early music specialists, noted for her pure, crystal-like tone and vocal agility. Sarah showcases her repertoire including Mozart's Exsultate Jubilate, Purcell's Evening Hymn and Dowland's songs.

Orlande de Lassus (1532-1594)

The Royal Wedding

A cosmopolitan composer who became so famous he was known as "The Divinde Orlando", this week Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of Orlande de Lassus.

During the 1560's Lassus was busy not only developing musical activities and standards at the court of Duke Albrecht V of Bavaria in Munich, but also improving his own reputation as a composer. In 1562 Lassus was invited to the coronation of the new King of Bavaria and, for this occasion, he composed his motet, Pacis amans. It was during this period that Lassus also composed his famous six-part motet, Timor et tremor.

Lassus had now been appointed Director of Music at the Munich court, a position whose duties he'd been undertaking for some time. By 1568 Lassus was involved in another royal event, the wedding of the Duke's son, Wilhelm V. Lassus composed a Te Deum and entertained guests with his own singing, accompanying himself on the Lute. His motet, Edite Caesareo Boiorum, was also probably sung at the royal wedding.

Orlande de Lassus (1532-1594)

Lassus and the King of France

A cosmopolitan composer who became so famous he was known as "The Divine Orlando", this week Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of Orlande de Lassus.

Lassus's reputation had grown considerably by the 1570s, and he was made a member of the nobility by the Holy Roman, Emperor Maximilian II. King Charles IX of France hoped to poach Lassus away from his German employer, and offered the composer a very good salary. While visiting Paris, Lassus presented the monarch with a new collection of French songs, including Pour courir en poste à la ville and La nuict froide et sombre. Another work Charles IX was particularly bowled over with was Lassus's Prophetiae Sibyllarum. Nevertheless, Lassus opted to to stay in Munich.

Meanwhile, The Duke of Bavaria was beginning to become frustrated with his employee. He felt Lassus was displaying too much independence, including various trips abroad. One another occasion Lassus travelled to Rome to be made a Knight of the Gloden Spur by Pope Gregory XIII. In 1578, the old Duke died and new leadership in Munich brought changes, including a cull of musicians in order to save money. That same year, Lassus published his Missa pro defunctis.

Venice Unravelled

So Near to Venice

Writer Polly Coles reads So Near to Venice, the last of her essays about some of the ways in which Venetians and others have adapted to live in 21st-century Venice. Moving to Venice with her family for several years gave her a resident's view of a city she loves and despairs of in equal measure. Once the most cosmopolitan city in Europe, nowadays it seems little more than a stage-set for the tourist industry. But Venice will always be more than the most idealized city in the world.

In this edition, Polly looks at the invisible residents of Venice who service the millions of tourists who descend on the city each year.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b04xrt83)
Friday - Sarah Walker with Leanne Benjamin

Discover definitive recordings of the greatest classical music with your trusted guide, Sarah Walker. She's joined by former principal ballerina at the Royal Ballet Leanne Benjamin

9am
A selection of music including '5 Reasons to Love'...British film music. This week Sarah champions an art form that has seen contributions from leading and neglected British composers of the 20th century, from Vaughan Williams to William Walton. It's a genre that often struggles to be taken seriously, perhaps because in its most perfect form it's hidden from view, the audience not noticing that it brings colour to a black-and-white classic, or highlights emotional moods and landscapes, surreptitiously setting the scene.

9.30am
Mystery Composer. Take part in today's music-related challenge: listen to the clues and identify the mystery composer.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is Leanne Benjamin, former principal ballerina at the Royal Ballet. Leanne shares a selection of the music she danced to during her career, discussing her memories of choreographer Kenneth MacMillan and offering a personal insight into the world of a ballet dancer.

10.30am
This week Sarah's featured artist is Emma Kirkby, one of the world's most renowned early music specialists, noted for her pure, crystal-like tone and vocal agility. Sarah showcases her repertoire including Mozart's Exsultate Jubilate, Purcell's Evening Hymn and Dowland's songs.

11am
Sarah's Essential Choice
Tchaikovsky
String Quartet No.2 in F major, Op.22.


FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04xrtgp)
Orlande de Lassus (1532-1594)

Reform at Court

A cosmopolitan composer who became so famous he was known as "The Divine Orlando", this week Donald Macleod surveys the life and music of Orlande de Lassus.

Wilhelm succeeded his father as Duke of Bavaria in 1579. He found the court finances in a perilous state and quickly imposed drastic savings, including staff cuts at the Ducal Chapel. Lassus, as Music Director, now found himself with fewer musicians to work with. His music also had to accomodate changes in religious style, as the Jesuits came to have a powerful influence in Munich. His Missa Entre vous filles is introspective and sombre.

During the 1580s Ferdinand Lassus, one of Orlande's sons, began to take over some of his father's duties in the court chapel. Orlande's music during this period reflects his state of mind, including his madrigal Io son si stanco sotto, "I am so weary under the ancient burden of my sins". In his last decade Lassus began to suffer from depression. His final works include a collection of motets, Cantiones sacrae, and a set of spiritual madrigals, the monumental Lagrime di San Pietro.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b04xrzdm)
BBC Symphony Orchestra - Sibelius, Rachmaninov, Nielsen

Live from the Barbican, Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra continue their acclaimed cycle of Nielsen's Symphonies with No. 3. Plus the young Italian pianist Federico Colli joins the orchestra for Rachmaninov's 'fiendish' 3rd Piano Concerto.

Presented by Martin Handley

The concert begins with Sibelius's haunting overture The Dryad which gathers up moth-like fragments into a brief, halting dance. Winner of the Salzburg Mozart Competition (2011) and the Leeds International Piano Competition (2012), young Italian pianist Federico Colli shares his interpretation of Rachmaninov's "demonic" 3rd Piano Concerto. Plus soprano Lucy Hall and baritone Marcus Farnsworth join the orchestra in the spellbinding Andante pastorale of Nielsen's 'Sinfonia espansiva'. Despite its title, it's not the longest of his symphonies, its expansiveness is rather an expression of exhilarating life-force, launched as it is with a volley of 26 'A's, the key in which it eventually ends, rising into radiance.

Sibelius: The Dryad
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto no. 3 in D minor Op.30

c. 8.15pm Interval: Music from Denmark. Niels Gade wrote the choral prayer Gebeth before he made his breakthrough as a composer. Plus Carl Nielsen's Serenata in vano - a 'humorous trifle' written in 1914 for a quintet of wind and double bass.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b04xrzdq)
The Verb with Hilary Mantel

In this edition of The Verb Ian McMillan presents an extended interview with the novelist Hilary Mantel. The programme looks at her life in writing, from her struggle to publish the first book she ever wrote, the historical epic A Place of Greater Safety to the phenomenal success of her Thomas Cromwell books, Wolf Hall and Bring Up The Bodies, both of which won the Booker Prize. We learn about the themes that run through all her work: the pursuit of power, fame and how it changes us, the collective versus the individual voice, and ghosts (which for Mantel are choices not made, both in her life and in her writing). She sheds light on her relationship with Thomas Cromwell, how she avoids pastiche when writing historical dialogue, and explains that working on the recent RSC adaptations of her Thomas Cromwell books has influenced the final book in the trilogy, the as-yet-unpublished ‘The Mirror and The Light’.

Hilary Mantel published her first novel Every Day is Mother’s Day in 1985. She won the Winifred Holtby Memorial Prize for Fludd, and the Hawthornden Prize for An Experiment in Love. Her memoir, Giving Up the Ghost won the MIND Book of the Year award. Mantel is the first British writer to win the Booker Prize twice. Her most recent book is a collection of short stories The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher, published by Fourth Estate.

Presenter: Ian McMillan
Producer: Jessica Treen


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b04xrzjw)
Venice Unravelled

Water Level

Writer Polly Coles reads Water Level, the last of her essays about some of the ways in which Venetians and others have adapted to live in 21st century Venice - one of the most beautiful cities in the world. In this edition, Polly explores the real Venice lived at water level by its boat-loving residents who row their sandolos and other craft far into the lagoon to escape the visitors.

Written and performed by Polly Coles
Producer: Melanie Harris Sparklab Productions.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b04xrzmn)
Celtic Connections

Mary Ann Kennedy Live from Celtic Connections 1

Mary Ann Kennedy live from Glasgow at one of the world's biggest winter music festivals, with special late-night performances from the CCA, the BBC's hub on Sauchiehall Street.

In tonight's line-up, leading Quebec roots musicians Vent du Nord; Indian classical violin duo Ganesh and Kumaresh; plus Manran, one of Scotland's new generation of folk bands, who infuse Gaelic song with heavyweight Highland and uilleann pipes.

Celtic Connections is held in 20 venues over 18 days with 300 events taking place throughout the whole festival, involving over two thousand musicians from 26 countries. Scots and Irish Celtic music is at the centre of the festival, but it has always embraced the music of the Celtic cultures of the USA, Canada, France and Spain, together with the closely connected cultures of Scandinavia and eastern Europe. In recent years the Festival has also connected with traditions across Africa and Asia. The concerts range from the most traditional to the most experimental, all brought together in the context of one of the world's liveliest folk cultures, with a never-ending stream of young Scottish musicians who are reinventing their own traditions for their own time.

This is the first of two live late-night sessions from Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Arts, each featuring some of the best acts from the Festival. It is part of BBC Music's extensive coverage of Celtic Connections, also featuring on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC2 TV in Scotland, and BBC Music Online.

The line-up next week includes Romanian gipsy band Taraf de Haidouks, Songhoy Blues from Mali, and Italian tarantella band Canzoniere Grecanico Salentino.

Tickets available from the BBC Tickets website from Friday 9th January.
