SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b04cb6xk)
Stephen Grosz

Stephen Grosz waited until he was 60 to publish his first book, 'The Examined Life'. It was a huge overnight success - a bestseller here in Britain and translated into more than 20 languages across the world. It's a distillation of the lifetime he has spent as a psychoanalyst, tens of thousands of hours listening to people in hospitals, forensic clinics and in private practice. It reads like a collection of short stories, full of vignettes of memorable characters: the man who faked his own death, the pathological liar, the lovesick middle-aged woman who meets a man at a party - and turns up at his house the next week with a removals van to move in with him.

In Private Passions, in conversation with Michael Berkeley, Stephen Grosz tells his own story: his childhood in Chicago, the son of immigrants who ran a grocery store; student days in radical Berkeley; and now, settled in Britain, how he's facing the challenges of fatherhood and ageing. Music has played an important part right from the beginning, and Grosz admits that his choice of music is very psychologically revealing.

His musical choices include Scarlatti, Aaron Copland, Brahms's 3rd Symphony, gospel singer Bessie Jones, Schubert's Piano Sonata no 20, Bob Dylan - and a hilarious Alberta Hunter song about sex, My Handy Man Ain't Handy No More.

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

First broadcast 03/08/2014

In the Shadow of Kafka: Prophet of Prague

Misha Glenny journeys to Prague to examine how Franz Kafka's life and ideas were shaped by his native city at a critical point in European history at the start of the 20th century.

Today Franz Kafka is an icon in Prague: his face a logo, his name adopted by coffee houses and tourist brochures. And in some ways it has a right to claim him: Kafka was born and grew up in Prague. He went to school and spent his working life within a 12-block radius of the city's old town. Some have argued the city is there, unstated but ever-present, in all his fiction. Yet he had mixed feelings about his native city, famously writing "this loving mother has claws; he who would liberate himself would have to set her on fire".

Misha Glenny worked as a journalist in Prague in the 1980s. He returns to examine the life of one of the most elusive and intriguing figures in 20th-century literature.

How were Franz Kafka's ideas shaped by his time in Prague? Misha visits key locations including the Workers' Accident Insurance Institute where Kafka worked as an insurance lawyer for the best part of 15 years. He examines the global influences on Kafka's ideas: the esoteric philosophies circulating in Prague's cafes, the politics and paranoia of an empire in decline, the rising tide of Czech nationalism which threatened to engulf the Jewish old-town where the Kafkas lived.

Since his passing in 1924, Kafka has cut an ambivalent figure on the city's cultural landscape. In novels like The Trial and The Castle he seemed to anticipate the totalitarian forces which came to play in subsequent years. He was later dubbed The Prophet of Prague and his books duly banned, considered a threat to the communist regime.

MIsha Glenny is a writer and broadcaster. He lived in Prague in the 1980s as the Central Europe correspondent for the BBC.

SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b05tpnkh)
James Lancelot - organ of Durham Cathedral

Durham Cathedral's splendid organ is widely acknowledged to be one of the country's finest. Its statistics are impressive: four manuals (controlling five manual divisions) plus pedals; 98 speaking stops and 23 couplers and accessories; and no fewer than 5,746 pipes. But of course, to turn this triumph of mechanical engineering into music it takes human fingers and feet.

James Lancelot, 30 years the Master of the Choristers and Organist at Durham Cathedral, knows the instrument better than most. He plays a thrilling programme that puts both him and the organ through their paces, beginning and ending with two peaks of the repertoire from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

One of Bach's greatest works in any medium, the majestic C minor Passacaglia is a set of brilliant and contrasting variations crowned by a magnificent final fugue. Much arranged and orchestrated in the twentieth century, you can't beat hearing it on the instrument for which it was written. Psalm 94 is a grim plea for vengeance on God's enemies and the inspiration for German organist Julius Reubke, a younger contemporary of Liszt. Reubke's Sonata is a musical illustration of the text, a tone-poem in all but name - and a virtuoso tour de force by which both organs and organists are judged.

In between comes the first of Hindemith's three organ sonatas, Kenneth Leighton's celebratory 'Paean' and Percy Whitlock's most famous and popular organ work, 'Plymouth Suite'.

Presented by Christopher Cook.

Kenneth Leighton: Paean
Percy Whitlock: Plymouth Suite

SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b05tpnkk)
The Process

A new adaptation of Franz Kafka's classic book The Trial - dramatised and updated by Mark Ravenhill as part of Radio 3's series "In the Shadow of Kafka".

Imagine being accused of something you've not only not done, you don't even know what it is. Imagine a series of quasi-authority figures invading your office, bedroom and streets at any time of day or night. Imagine the buildings and city in which you live changing in front of your eyes. Imagine a never-ending, increasingly frightening process in which you are the key player and the least in charge. Welcome to the world of Joseph Kay.

Franz Kafka spawned a whole genre of writing and entered the OED with an adjective that encapsulates his very specific brand of clear, considered prose, nightmarish landscapes of misunderstanding, twisted psyches and utter loss of individual identity. Der Prozess was first published in 1925.

Mark says:
"Kafka's Der Prozess is one of the defining texts of the twentieth century, so it was an exciting challenge to re-imagine it for our times. I found that Kafka's story - of an individual struggling with a system in which responsibility, judgement and meaning are endlessly deferred - sat remarkably and yet uncomfortably well in a contemporary setting. Reading through my script before I delivered it, I couldn't be sure if I'd written a comedy or a tragedy. I would guess that's what Kafka wanted."

Choral Music by Judith Weir

The BBC Singers conducted by David Hill are joined by the Choristers of Temple Church Choir and members of Endymion to perform a selection of choral music by Judith Weir.

All the Ends of the Earth, for chorus, percussion and harp, was written for the BBC Singers as part of a Europe-wide radio broadcast on Millennium Day, 1 January 2000 celebrating the 1000-year old music of Perotin, on whose motet Viderent Omnes this composition is based.

Missa del Cid explores the relationship between religion and warfare. Weir compiled the text from the 13th-century Cantar del Mio Cid which takes place during the reconquest of Spain from the Moors, and imagines a Mass attended by the swashbuckling hero Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar and his troops. The resulting Mass text, which enfolds a partial telling of the Cid's story, is made up of extracts from Latin liturgy and the Cantar itself in its original Old Spanish

In Storm, The BBC Singers are joined by the Choristers of Temple Church Choir for a suite of short settings of words from Shakespeare's Tempest. Each of the five movements distills one of the concepts of the play.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b05tprym)
Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

The Organ Prodigy

Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Charles-Marie Widor. In his lifetime, Widor was feted throughout Europe as a performer, teacher, and composer of ballets, opera, concertos and organ symphonies, Today he is largely remembered for just one work. This week, Dr John Near joins Donald Macleod to journey through the world of Widor, looking beyond his famous organ Toccata to explore the composer's chamber and orchestral music.

The young Widor emerged as an organ prodigy in the 1860s, with the support and encouragement of the famed organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. He was soon offered a post at the church of St. Sulpice in Paris, and became a pivotal figure in Parisian cultural and social circles. His performances at the organ, and his works for the stage and concert halls attracted many, including royalty. Widor also joined the teaching staff at the Paris Conservatoire, and taught many luminaries of the next generation, including Vierne, Kodály, Varese and Messiaen. Widor lived into his nineties and remained active into his final years, founding the Casa Vélazquez in Madrid for French artists to study Spanish culture.

Playing and building organs ran in the Widor family. Young Charles-Marie was first hoisted onto the organ bench at the age of four where his father would teach him the mysteries of the instrument. By the time he was eleven years old, Widor was awarded a scholarship to study at the Lycee in Lyon. He was able to earn his keep by playing the organ at mass and vespers at the city's Jesuit College. Widor would go on to compose much liturgical music during his long career, including his Mass Opus 36 for two choirs and two organs.

Supported by the organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, Widor was sent to study organ with Jacques Lemmens and composition with François-Joseph Fétis. After this burst of intense learning, Cavaillé-Coll utilised his protégé's now exceptional skills by sending Widor off around Europe to champion instruments manufactured by his mentor's firm. Later, Cavaillé-Coll helped Widor secure his first significant position as organist at the church of St. Sulpice in Paris, where he was to remain for sixty-four years.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b05tptfy)
In the Shadow of Kafka

Margaret Atwood

Franz Kafka means many things to many people. Five leading writers explore the breadth of his thinking, his world and how his writing still resonates for them as contemporary writers.

Part of In the Shadow of Kafka, Radio 3's series exploring the work and influence of Franz Kafka.

1. Kafka: Three Encounters - Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood's first essay on Kafka was written when she was 19 years old not yet a writer herself. Over the years she visited Prague three times, each time looking for traces of the iconic writer, each time finding a different version of him and a changing attitude of his native city to one of its most famous and elusive sons. How did he have such a far-sighted interpretation of the world around him and beyond?

Margaret Atwood is a multi award-winning novelist, poet, essayist and environmental campaigner.

Producer, Polly Thomas

A Somethin Else production for BBC Radio 3.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b05tptg0)
In the Shadow of Kafka: Blue-Eyed Hawk in Session

British band Blue-Eyed Hawk perform in session, premiering new music inspired by the celebrated Czech writer Franz Kafka.

Now 100 years since the publication of his seminal work The Metamorphosis (Die Verwandlung), Franz Kafka remains one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, inspiring generations with his novels and short stories, themes of alienation, authority and mythical transformation. To coincide with a series of programmes across Radio 3 celebrating his life, Jazz on 3 invited Blue-Eyed Hawk - a quartet born from the fascination between improvisation and literature - to write new music inspired by Kafka's short stories.

As their namesake line from W.B. Yeats's poem Under the Moon suggests, Blue-Eyed Hawk's first projects have focused mainly on the musicality found in poetry, powered by vocalist Lauren Kinsella's impressive ability to reimagine the rhythms and twists of verse. However Kafka's prose poses a different sort of challenge and it's a focus on his characters and themes that come to the fore in this session. The band members, including acclaimed young trumpeter Laura Jurd, guitarist Alex Roth and drummer Corrie Dick, share composition duties and bring their own individual sound to the world of Kafka.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Miranda Hinkley.

Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

Widor Causes a Stir

He was famed throughout Europe as a performer, teacher, and composer of ballets, opera, concertos and organ symphonies, although today he is largely remembered for one work, his Toccata for organ, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Charles-Marie Widor.

Widor was dazzling Paris with his organ performances at the church of St. Sulpice. The social elite of the city would be allowed to sit in the organ loft with Widor and watch him perform, including the banker Frederic d'Erlanger, to whom the composer dedicated his Trio Opus 19. The Cavaillé-Coll instrument at St. Sulpice offered a rich palette to composers, and soon Widor started writing sets of symphonies for his instrument, although some commentators couldn't understand how you could composer a symphony for solo organ.

Mixing in the cultural circles of Paris was very important to Widor. He composed many songs during his career, and dedicated them to various aristocrats and artists. Widor was also socialising with the musical elite, including Liszt, and he attended one of the first performances of Wagner's Ring Cycle at Bayreuth. He was keen to push musical boundaries himself, and his symphonic poem La Nuit de Walpurgis, the witches' Sabbath, caused quite a stir. Some critics thought that Widor was going too far!

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b05tq23h)
Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

Appointed to the Paris Conservatoire

He was famed throughout Europe as a performer, teacher, and composer of ballets, opera, concertos and organ symphonies, although today he is largely remembered for one work, his Toccata for organ, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Charles-Marie Widor.

Widor's music was becoming known internationally. His next big hit came with his ballet La Korrigane, The Goblin Maiden. The premiere at the Paris Opera was a huge success, and was attended by Edward, Prince of Wales who took curtain calls with the composer. On the recommendation of His Royal Highness, Widor received a commission to compose music for the Royal Philharmonic Society, marking the tenth anniversary of the Father Willis organ at the Royal Albert Hall. For this occasion Widor composed his Symphony Opus 42a for organ and orchestra.

In 1890 Widor returned to England for another Royal Philharmonic Society event, the performance of his Fantaisie in A flat major Opus 62. This work went down very well and remained popular throughout the composer's lifetime. In the same year, following the death of Cesar Franck, Widor was appointed organ professor at the Paris Conservatoire. He was met with hostility from some of his new students, but he soon won them over with his knowledge and abilities.

Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

Promoted at the Paris Conservatoire

He was famed throughout Europe as a performer, teacher, and composer of ballets, opera, concertos and organ symphonies, although today he is largely remembered for one work, his Toccata for organ, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Charles-Marie Widor.

Widor had a number of huge hits under his belt, including not only organ music, but works for the stage and concert platform as well. A work of his which has stood the test of time along with his Toccata for organ, is Widor's Suite Opus 34 for flute and piano, composed in the mid 1880s. Although much of Widor's time was taken with teaching organ at the Paris Conservatoire, and his post at the church of St. Sulpice, he still received commissions from abroad, including a new work to be performed in Geneva, his Symphony No 3 Op 69 for organ and orchestra.

There was a turning point for Widor in 1895. His music started to take on a much more serious nature, and he became increasingly interested in Gregorian chant. It was during this period, just before the start of the twentieth century, that Widor's career took another significant turn, when he was appointed Professor of Composition at the Paris Conservatoire.

De Angelis unpicks the comic elements of The Castle, one of his three full length novels, and argues an unusual case, for Kafka the feminist.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b05tq23r)
Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937)

A Musical Statesman

He was famed throughout Europe as a performer, teacher, and composer of ballets, opera, concertos and organ symphonies, although today he is largely remembered for one work, his Toccata, this week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Charles-Marie Widor.

In the last thirty years of Widor's long life, he saw his own musical style become more out-of-date. He was far from giving up though, and with his appointment to the French Academy of Fine Arts, Widor had plenty to do. He now held the highest official post for a musician in France, and utilised his position to help artists in need. During the Great War he refused to leave Paris, feeling that he was honour bound to remain at the Institut and do what he could.

His composing activities were now much reduced. During the war he composed a solitary song Dormez, Mèlité, and in 1934 came his last work for the organ, Trois Nouvelles Pièces Opus 87. Yet Widor continued to work tirelessly, establishing a new French cultural institute in Madrid, and also London, and completing over 60 years as organist at St. Sulpice in Paris. One of Widor's final masterpieces, on a Mahlerian scale, was his Symphonie antique Op 83 for soloists, choir, organ and orchestra.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b05tq3rl)
In the Shadow of Kafka

Transformer

Franz Kafka means many things to many people. Five essayists explore the breadth of his thinking, his world and how his work still resonates for them as contemporary writers.

Part of In the Shadow of Kafka, Radio 3's current season, highlighting the work and influence of Franz Kafka.

5. Transformer - Jeff Young

Jeff first encountered Kafka as a surly teenager in the 1970s, when a kipper tie wearing art teacher put A Love Supreme by John Coltrane on the turntable during an art lesson and read aloud from Metamorphosis. The magic and mystery of Kafka's writing was made even powerful by the fact that it had been translated. Over time, Jeff collected and compared every new edition. His essay looks at the nature of translation, how it sits between the writer and the words and how that magical space allows the reader to discover his or her own version of the author and his intention.

Jeff Young is a playwright, for radio stage and screen. He has written about 30 radio plays, radio essays and drama documentaries. In 2014 his play 'Bright Phoenix' marked the 50th anniversary of Liverpool Everyman theatre.

Producer, Polly Thomas

A Somethin Else production for BBC Radio 3.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b05tq41q)
Mary Ann Kennedy - Alash in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, plus live music from traditional Tuvan trio Alash.

Alash are masters of the extraordinary throat-singing tradition of Tuva in Central Asia. The technique of throat-singing enables the performer to produce whistle-like overtones against a simultaneous low-pitched drone. Alash take their name from the Alash River in the northwest region of Tuva, and the group came together in 1999 as students in the Tuvan capital Kykzl. The trio accompany themselves on traditional instruments made from horsehair and goatskin. Their work has included collaborations with the Sun Ra Arkestra and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

Also in tonight's programme, Andy Kershaw makes a welcome return to Radio 3 to select his Album of the Month, Alone by Malian desert rock band Terakaft.

All World on 3 sessions are available for download as a podcast via the Radio 3 website.
