Three criminals on the run find they can go no further, so they found a city - Mahagonny, city of gold. The destitute and the disenchanted flock there, among them the prostitute Jenny and the lumberjack Jim.

The city swells with debauchery. Jim and Jenny try to escape, but for all their efforts find they cannot leave. Jim is arrested and accused of many crimes. He gets short sentences for the lesser ones, but for having no money, he is sentenced to death. He is executed and the city burns.

Director John Fulljames directs The Royal Opera's first production of the work, focusing on Brecht and Weill's stinging critique of consumerism while finding new relevance in today's insatiable depletion of the earth's resources.

Presented by Andrew Mcgregor.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b05202t7)
Andy McNab

Andy McNab is very lucky to be alive today; in fact from the beginning his life has been characterised by exceptional risk and danger. As a baby, he was found abandoned in a Harrods carrier bag on the steps of Guy's Hospital. By the time he was a teenager, he was in trouble with the police. Joining the army at 16, he served in the SAS, and in 1991, during the First Iraq war, he led a secret mission to infiltrate behind enemy lines. It was a disaster: he was captured, and tortured savagely. Three of his fellow soldiers didn't survive.

Andy McNab's account of his captivity and eventual escape, Bravo Two Zero, became a world-wide best-seller and launched him on a career as a writer. Since then there have been more than 30 thrillers, with sales totalling 32 million. So the baby who was left in a carrier bag is not just a survivor, he's hugely successful.

In Private Passions Andy McNab reveals the central place of music in his life, and particularly his passion for opera. Opera, he says, is the only thing that makes him cry: he chooses Wagner, Verdi and Puccini. McNab reveals too his love of the calm reflective music of Gregorian chant, which he first heard sung by the Benedictine monks of Belmont Abbey, when he was training for the SAS in Herefordshire. He talks movingly about his imprisonment and torture, and about how the particular sounds of that time are burned into his memory: the jangle of keys, the rattle of doors. To escape those dark memories, he chooses one of the most joyful pieces of music ever written: Handel's Messiah.

A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3

Produced by Elizabeth Burke.

Renaissance Polyphony

Peter Phillips and the Tallis Scholars have specialised in the performance of Renaissance polyphony for over thirty years. They have built a reputation for bringing some of the greatest European church music of the 16th and 17th centuries onto the concert platform. So what has prompted such an enthusiasm? Lucie Skeaping explores with Peter and the group some of the qualities and the ethos of Renaissance polyphony. She learns how working with this music has encouraged the group to find a distinctive sound and performing methodology. The programme includes extracts from some of the Tallis Scholars' many recordings.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b054glfz)
Mission Harpsichord

From the "skeletons copulating on a tin roof" jibes of conductor Sir Thomas Beecham to its unfavourable characterisation as the ideal instrument of the Addams Family, the harpsichord is an often misunderstood instrument - sometimes dividing audiences. Harpsichord virtuoso Mahan Esfahani heads off on a personal journey to uncover the instrument's chequered history, why the people who play it are not always its best advocates, and how this ancient instrument has a very modern face too.

He heads to Prague to meet his mentor, 88 year old Czech harpsichord maestro Zuzana Ružicková and visits the workshop of young Finnish harpsichord builder Jukka Olikka. En route he quizzes pianist Igor Levit on the harpsichord-piano rivalry and speaks to composer Michael Nyman about modern harpsichord music. To complete the picture he drops in at the Rudolfinum to talk to harpsichord expert Petr Sefl, and in London meets Barbican director, Sir Nicholas Kenyon.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b05202tp)
Philharmonia Orchestra - Mendelssohn, Mozart, Mahler

Live from the Royal Festival Hall

Presented by Ian Skelly

Edward Gardner and the Philharmonia play Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture and Mahler's First Symphony. Sunwook Kim joins them in Mozart's Piano Concerto in C minor, K491.

8.35
Mahler: Symphony No.1

Sunwook Kim, piano
Philharmonia Orchestra
Edward Gardner, conductor

Tonight's concert features two stirring evocations of the natural world. Mendelssohn's ever-popular overture was inspired by a visit to Fingal's Cave, a landmark so striking that the likes of Wordsworth, Keats and JMW Turner were all seduced by it.

Mahler's portrayal of nature awakening follows, replete with bird-calls and the sound of a marching town band punctuating a haunting, minor-key version of the children's favourite, 'Frère Jacques'.


SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b05202tr)
The Master and Margarita

By Mikhail Bulgakov
Adapted by Lucy Catherine
With music by Stephen Warbeck

The Devil comes to Moscow in Bulgakov's fantastical and frightening satire of Soviet life, and unleashes a whirlwind of chaos that entangles Moscow's literary elite, Margarita and her beloved, a condemned writer known only as the Master, Jesus Christ and Pontius Pilate, as well as the vodka-drinking giant tomcat Behemoth.

This landmark production of Bulgakov's imaginative extravaganza was awarded the Best Drama prize in the Adaptation category of 2016's Audio Drama Awards. It features songs and original music from Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Warbeck, and an all-star cast led by Anne-Marie Duff as Margarita and Anton Lesser as Professor Woland.

Written in secret during the darkest days of Stalin's reign, The Master and Margarita became a literary sensation on publication and has become one of the best-loved modern classics of world literature.

Composer: Stephen Warbeck
Violin: Bogdan Vacarescu
Accordion: Eddie Hession

Percussion: Rob Millet
Clarinet: Sarah Homer
Banjo: Stephen Warbeck

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b052047r)
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

The Touring von Weber Family

He became an international celebrity through his success in the world of German opera, and his explorations into novel instrumental timbres greatly enriched orchestral music, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Carl Maria von Weber. Weber was born into a musical family, and both music and theatre featured significantly in his early life. It is not surprising that Weber's greatest successes were in the opera house, although his output in other areas such as orchestral, chamber and choral music, were all highly esteemed. In fact, Weber's music would go on to influence a great many younger composers, including Mendelssohn, Wagner and Liszt. Despite these accolades, financial security evaded Weber as he moved from job to job, working for various aristocrats and royals. Towards the end of his life he received a commission to travel to London and compose an opera for Covent Garden. He was already seriously ill but Weber made the trip and composed Oberon, hoping it would generate enough income to support his family. He died in London, failing to return home to make his farewells.

Weber lived much of his early life on the road with his family, in the Weber Theatre Company. His early attempts at musical composition, from the age of twelve, found their way into more mature works, including his opera, Peter Schmoll, and a setting of the mass. His father Anton was so pleased with these early attempts, that he had them published.

Weber's father often had itchy feet, and he took his family from city to city looking for better prospects. In this way we find Weber in Salzburg studying with Michael Haydn, and later in Vienna learning from the eccentric and colourful character of Abbé Georg Josef Vogler. Weber would write a set of variations for solo piano, on Vogler's ballet Càstore e Pollùce.

By the age of 17, Weber was recommended by Vogler to the post of Director of Music to the Ducal Court in Breslau. The appointment of someone so young didn't go down well with members of the orchestra, especially as Weber wanted to instigate changes. Weber soon moved on, and found employment in Carlsruhe, working for Duke Eugen of Württemberg, to whom he dedicated his Second Symphony.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b053c10q)
BBC SSO - Stenhammar, Nielsen

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Tom Redmond

An evening of refreshingly unfamiliar Scandinavian symphonic works with which conductor Andrew Manze, who spends much of his time in Sweden, has deep affinity.

He brings a relatively unknown composer's music to City Halls, Glasgow. Although in Sweden Wilhelm Stenhammar's music is highly regarded his work remains stubbornly unknown in the UK. His orchestral Serenade was written at the beginning of the 20th century and has echoes of Grieg and Sibelius. Its five evocative movements range widely in mood and are full of lyrical melodies and exuberant energy, often with a very direct simplicity.

And so to Nielsen's 6th Symphony - known as Sinfonia Semplice. Tonight this least familiar of Nielsen's Symphonies is performed in an enlightening transcription by the deeply thoughtful composer, Hans Abrahamsen. From its opening strikes on the glockenspiel to the vigorous conclusion of the final theme and variations it will be explored in this 'up close and personal' version with passion and commitment by Manze and the musicians of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

Matthew Sweet is joined for a discussion of this Landmark of culture by Professor Ian Christie, critic Larushka Ivan Zadeh, writer SF Said and Dr Alexander Jacoby, author of A Critical Handbook of Japanese Film Directors.

Producer: Zahid Warley

MON 22:45 The Essay (b052058x)
Meeting the Giants of Jazz

Doc Cheatham

Critic Martin Gayford tells the stories of his encounters and friendships with leading jazz musicians as a fan, an amateur music promoter and, latterly, as a journalist.

In this first programme, Martin recalls his meetings with Doc Cheatham, a trumpeter whose lengthy career spanned almost all recorded jazz. In an attempt to befriend one of his musical heroes, Martin booked the octogenarian Doc to play a gig in Cambridge. The tactic worked, when he embarked on a tour with Doc and found himself rooming with him in Soho. Here Doc told Martin his stories of playing in bands in Nashville, accompanying Billie Holiday, deputising for Louis Armstrong and becoming a celebrated solo artist in his own right.

Producer Paul Smith, for Just Radio.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b052058z)
Kenny Garrett Quintet

Five years on the road with Miles Davis plus stints with Freddie Hubbard and Art Blakey make for a strong start to a jazz musician's career. American saxophonist Kenny Garrett has followed it up with over a quarter of a century as one of the biggest draws on the scene, and performs here with his quintet at Ronnie Scott's in London.

Garrett and his group go at the music hard. It's jubilant stuff, mixing full-on swing, spiritual jazz, Latin grooves and chants, with the added edge of Garrett's distinctive, forceful sound on alto and soprano. He's joined by pianist Vernell Brown, bassist Corcoran Holt, McClenty Hunter on drums and Rudy Bird on percussion.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b052043v)
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

Battles with the King of Wurttemberg

He became an international celebrity through his success in the world of German opera, and his explorations into novel instrumental timbres greatly enriched orchestral music, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Carl Maria von Weber.

Weber had been appointed to the post of Director of Music at the Ducal Court in Breslau. He didn't remain in the position for long or indeed have much time for composition, but he did make a start on an opera. Later on Weber reworked some of this music into a concert overture, Der Beherrscher der Geister, The Ruler of the Spirits.

Weber eventually made his way to Stuttgart, via a period in Carlsruhe, to become the private secretary to Duke Ludwig of Württemberg. His duties included writing begging letters to the Duke's brother, the King of Württemberg, for financial support. The King didn't like Weber, and the composer found himself thrown into prison at one point. During his time in captivity he composed the song, Klage: Ein steter Kampf ist unser Leben.

Things came to a head in 1810, when Weber and his father were escorted to a frontier post at the boundaries of the Württemberg domains, and ordered never to return. Weber now travelled to Mannheim, and then on to Darmstadt, looking for work. It was during this period that he composed his exotic opera, Abu Hassan.

Sean Rafferty takes his In Tune salon of live music and chat to The MAC in Belfast for St Patrick's Day. Today his guests include international pianists Pascal and Ami Rogé, composer Brian Irvine, poet Michael Longley, countertenor Mark Chambers with theorbist Paula Chateauneuf, the chamber choir Codetta and Irish traditional musicians Cúig.

Pascal and Ami Rogé have performed at concert halls all over the world, including New York's Carnegie Hall, London's Kings Place and City Recital Hall Angel Place Sydney.

Belfast-born composer, Brian Irvine's work reflects an obsessive love of music creation in all its forms. His music is a highly personal concoction of punk, improvisation and contemporary classical!

Michael Longley will read a selection of his poetry. He is one of Northern Ireland's foremost contemporary poets and is renowned for the quiet beauty of his meditative lyrics.

Codetta is one of Northern Ireland's acclaimed chamber choirs. Under artistic director Dónal Doherty the choir has performed at the BBC Proms and it played a key role during the 2013 Derry~Londonderry, UK City of Culture events.

Countertenor Mark Chambers has performed all over the world and works regularly with many of the world's leading choirs and ensembles and will sing with theorbist Paula Chateauneuf.

Cúig, meaning 'five' in Irish, was formed in late 2011, and is made up of five young musicians from Co. Tyrone and Co. Armagh. They are establishing themselves among the most promising artists on the Irish traditional music scene, incorporating Breton, Galician and American bluegrass tunes into a set-list which is already steeped in the Irish tradition.

Matthew Sweet talks to Andrew Scull, author of Madness in Civilisation about how different cultures around the world and through time have dealt with what we might call madness, insanity or the loss of reason and how the experience, felt or observed, has been interpreted by writers and artists. They are joined by Lisa Appignanesi, author of Trials of Passion and Mad, Bad and Sad to discuss whether the west's long-term belief that madness had its roots in the body was bad news for women.
Matthew Beaumont also presents his history of an ancient crime but one still on the statute books of Massachussetts - Night Walking. Via the pens of Samuel Johnson who blamed London's noxious night hours on arrogant aristocrats, to William Blake's evocations of London's Darkness, Free Thinking hears from those who had nothing in common with their slumbering fellows and who like Charles Dickens, enjoyed a time that brought some sense of better things, else forgotten and unattainable. Alongside, Deborah Longworth with a view of the flaneuse, the female solitary ambler and a pen-portrait of Dorothy Richardson whose relationship with the city of London outweighed all other passions in her life.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b052043x)
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

Weber and His Future Wife

He became an international celebrity through his success in the world of German opera, and his explorations into novel instrumental timbres greatly enriched orchestral music, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Carl Maria von Weber.

Weber's reputation as a composer was starting to rise. In 1812 he travelled to Gotha at the invitation of the Duke of Saxe-Gotha. The Duke was a colourful character who liked to shock his court by dyeing his hair different colours, and by dressing up. He also had a great passion for music and Weber found himself kept very busy, including work on his Piano Concerto No 2.

By 1813 Weber was offered a new role, and one much more to his liking, the post of Director at the Opera in Prague. Standards at the opera had declined and Weber relished the challenge ahead of him. It was during this period that Weber first encountered his future wife, the singer Caroline Brandt. She approached the opera company, looking for work in Prague, and was quickly signed up.

Eventually, Weber tired of his problems at the Opera and moved on to the royal court in Dresden. There were again many obstacles to overcome in Dresden, not least the aristocracy's preference for only Italian music, but it was here that Weber would compose his most successful opera to date, Der Freischütz.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b0520547)
Sociology in the 21st Century

For the last few decades of the 20th century, Sociology had cultural currency and political power, but has it now fallen by the wayside, identifiable only as an academic discipline rather than one that has lived relevance or impact? Has it become too abstract and esoteric while the wider study of how we behave as a society has been co-opted by journalists and historians? Who are the new generation developing ideas that bear upon contemporary cultural and political life?

To examine where we are at with Sociology in 2015, Philip Dodd is joined by three leading practitioners, the LSE's Richard Sennett, Frank Furedi from the University of Kent, and Monika Krause at Goldsmiths, as well as the journalist and author, Peter Oborne.

Producer: Craig Templeton Smith.

Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

Slighted at Court

He became an international celebrity through his success in the world of German opera, and his explorations into novel instrumental timbres greatly enriched orchestral music, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Carl Maria von Weber.

Weber had been appointed Royal Kapellmeister to the royal court in Dresden where he was required to compose music for special occasions, such as a cantata to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the King's accession, and his Mass No 2 for the celebrations to mark the King's golden wedding. However, the composer frequently found himself out of favour on account of his German nationality. The King and his court had a preference for Italian music, and Weber often found himself at loggerheads with officialdom.

Weber married the singer Caroline Brandt and, in 1818, she gave birth to their first child, Marie, who died just three months later. Weber sank into a depression, and also began to show signs of tuberculosis. He was buoyed by the success of his incidental music for Preciosa, and he soon turned his attention to a new comic operatic idea, Die drei Pintos.

Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826)

Weber in London

He became an international celebrity through his success in the world of German opera, and his explorations into novel instrumental timbres greatly enriched orchestral music, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Carl Maria von Weber.

Weber was increasingly worried about his health, as he battled with tuberculosis. He was heartened by the birth of his son, Max, who survived infancy and would go on to become his father's first biographer. Not long after this new arrival to the Weber family, Carl Maria von Weber started work on a new opera, Euryanthe. Despite his illness, Weber was working at lightning speed, not only on Euryanthe, but also a fourth piano sonata, and revising his Bassoon Concerto.

Weber knew his time was now limited, but he was determined not leave his family in financial difficulty. He took a commission to compose a new opera for Covent Garden, Oberon, and journeyed to London for its premiere. He wrote many letters home to his wife Caroline about how much he enjoyed life in London, but his health now started to fail, and he died not long after Oberon's success in the capital.

Mary Ann Kennedy - Sam Lee Live in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy presents a selection of new music from across the globe and a live session from the English folk musician Sam Lee, performing songs from his new album A Fade in Time.

Sam Lee began collecting traditional song after meeting and studying with Scottish traveller singer Stanley Robinson. His striking arrangements often utilize instruments not normally associated with English folk music such as koto, tabla, Shruti box, and trumpet. On A Fade in Time, the follow up to 2012's critically acclaimed A Ground of its Own, Sam revisits and reinvents songs from his teacher Stanley Robinson as well as those collected by English gypsy singers May Bradley and Freda Black. For this live session - following the first night of his 16-date tour of England, Sam is joined by regular bandmembers Flora Curzon (violin), Josh Green (percussion) and Jon Whitten (piano and dulcimer) plus guest singers, to be announced.

World on 3 sessions are available for download as a podcast via the home page.
