SAT 18:50 Opera on 3 (b05vgxvp)
Szymanowski: Krol Roger

Tonight's Opera on 3 is another chance to hear Szymanowski's rarely performed masterpiece, Król Roger (King Roger), from the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden which was recorded live in May 2015. It stars Mariusz Kwiecien in the title role, conducted by Antonio Pappano in the production by Kasper Holten.

Szymanowski's great opera, which had its premiere in 1926, grew out of his passion for Mediterranean culture as an amalgam of different peoples and religions. It also treats some of the themes that first appeared in his lost homoerotic novel Efebos. Set in 12th-century Sicily, the opera traces the journey to enlightenment of the Christian King Roger II through his encounter with a mysterious pagan Shepherd. While Roger's court call for the Shepherd to be put to death, Roger's queen Roxana urges her husband to accept the Shepherd's creed. Roger gradually realizes that he can only maintain his integrity by neither merely upholding the law of the church, or by yielding to the wild freedom (symbolised in abandoned dances) of the Shepherd and his followers. In his final ecstatic soliloquy, Roger attains self-realization.

Andrew McGregor introduces the performance that was originally heard live in May 2015.

King Roger II of Sicily.....Mariusz Kwiecien (Baritone)
Shepherd.....Saimir Pirgu (Tenor)
Roxana.....Georgia Jarman (Soprano)

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b05vh1rf)
Iqbal Khan

Michael Berkeley's guest is the opera and theatre director Iqbal Khan.

He has brought to the stage everything from Madame Butterfly and Sondheim's Into the Woods to an RSC production of Much Ado About Nothing set in modern India.

In Private Passions, Khan explores his favourite operas, with extracts from Verdi, Mozart, and Wagner, and chooses other music which inspires him, from Mahler's 2nd Symphony and Britten's War Requiem, to an extraordinary percussive piece by Nitin Sawhney. He plays, too, a historic recording of Paul Scofield as King Lear. And he talks movingly about his childhood and difficult teenage years, growing up in Birmingham, after his father died and the family was left penniless. Khan was inspired by his older brother, who encouraged him to aim for the highest academic honours, and read to him at night by candlelight - to make the books more exciting. Dracula was a particular favourite.

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

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b05vh1rp)
Clockwise

Clockwise: The award-winning actors Toby Jones and Romola Garai explore our obsession with clocks and timekeeping. The imperious shrilling of the alarm clock; the way ticking sometimes sounds like fate approaching; the moments elongated or abbreviated by emotion: the way the imagination tends to go blank before the notion of eternity: these are all part of a meditation on why and how we measure time - from Handel's pieces for musical clocks to St Augustine's Confessions ... and all in the time it takes your average chronometer to tick from five thirty in the evening to six forty-five.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b04003kn)
Merchant Ivory - Classics, Celluloid and Class

Style, flair, individuality, ideas... and stars. The filmic output of the remarkable three-person association of creative talents that is collectively known as 'Merchant Ivory' has endured since the early 1960s.

For The Sunday Feature, Laurence Scott re-assesses the team's output. From their early success 'Shakespeare Wallah', through the trio of big English hits - 'A Room with a View', 'Howards End' and 'The Remains of the Day' - as well as less popular, but equally stylish American and French-based movies, Merchant Ivory pictures have always combined visual sophistication with stupendous acting talent. Yet despite their many triumphs, 'Merchant Ivory' became for some critics a tainted brand, redolent of a sort of big-house costume drama that epitomised all that was wrong with British cinema. Why? And were the criticisms fair?

Merchant Ivory was a unique combination of cinema talents, 'a three-person marriage' in the words of one of their biggest stars, Helena Bonham-Carter: James Ivory directed, his late partner Ismail Merchant produced, and most of the films were written by the screenwriter and novelist Ruth Prawer-Jhabvala.

While he was in London recently preparing his latest film Jim Ivory talked over three days with Laurence Scott, and explored his lifetime of film-making.

Also in the programme, alongside Helena Bonham-Carter whose career was largely launched by the team, is veteran Indian actress Madhur Jaffrey, who brought Jim and Ismail together and starred in a number of their Indian films, and novelist and screenwriter Kazuo Ishiguro. Plus, the man who as a schoolboy got Ivory and Merchant to star in his home movies (we savour the broadcast premiere) and went on to run the company, Richard Macrory.

Producer: Simon Elmes

First broadcast 06/04/2014.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b05vh237)

The first of two concerts from the London Festival of Baroque Music. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment plays music by Vivaldi and Porpora, joined by the Oxford-based choir Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi, an all-women choir which specialises in recreating the sound of the female orphanage choir that Vivaldi composed for.

Vivaldi: Dixit Dominus, RV 595
Vivaldi: Clarae stellae, scintillate, RV 625
Vivaldi: In exitu Israel, RV 604

Vivaldi: Nulla in mundo pax sincera, RV 630
Vivaldi - Gloria, RV 589

Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi
Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Kati Debretzeni (violin/director)

The London Festival of Baroque Music is a new festival founded this year, continuing the legacy of the Lufthansa Festival of Baroque Music, which ended in 2014 after 30 successful years. The theme of the festival is Women in Baroque Music, and it embraces music by women composers as well as pieces written for or about women. Vivaldi composed many of his choral pieces, including his celebrated Gloria, for the Pio Ospedale della Pietà (Devout Hospital of Mercy) in Venice, where he worked over a thirty year period. Their all-female choir clearly included women who could manage the choral bass parts, as does tonight's choir, the Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi.

This is the first of two live broadcasts from the London Festival of Baroque Music - on Tuesday the Choir of Westminster Abbey and St James's Baroque are conducted by James O'Donnell in Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610.

Imogen Cooper, Henning Kraggerud, Adrian Brendel - Schubert Piano Trios

Live from St James's Church, Chipping Campden
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The pianist Imogen Cooper is well known for her interpretations of the solo piano music of Schubert. Here she teams up with the violinist Henning Kraggerud and the cellist Adrian Brendel to perform two of Schubert's masterpieces of chamber music: his two piano trios, composed at the pinnacle of his career aged just 31, shortly before he died.

Schubert: Piano Trio no.1 in B flat, Op.99

Interval: A collection of Schubert lieder performed by Anne Sofie von Otter and Thomas Quasthoff with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe under Claudio Abbado. Orchestrated by Johannes Brahms and Max Reger
Schubert: Piano Trio no.2 in E flat, Op.100

Henning Kraggerud (violin)
Adrian Brendel (cello)
Imogen Cooper (piano)

The two late piano trios of Schubert, though written only a few weeks apart, are quite different in character. Trio No. 1 in B-flat is a more confident outgoing work with a lighthearted finale. The Trio No. 2, on the other hand, is more serious in demeanour, with an inward brooding quality.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b05vh43c)
The Meaning of Trees

Horse Chestnut

Despite being a much loved tree, the Horse Chestnut actually symbolises being there for sentiment rather than purpose, it is actually a pretty useless tree. By all means enjoy the ornamental aspect of the trees but the timber from horse chestnut is not good quality - there is plenty of it as the tree can gain bulk and volume quickly, but the wood is soft, weak and perishes easily. Its so-called chestnuts are pretty useless too. The poisons in them make processing them for food too costly. But its as conkers that its nuts make it have important meaning for us, as play and togetherness. An incomer and an imposter - from the Balkans, the name stuck, due to the horseshoe shape scars left in its trunk when the leaves fall off. It was such a raging fashion after its UK arrival that Capability Brown planted 4800 in one estate in Wiltshire alone. No wonder it has remained everywhere in the UK since. Its conkers and majestic presence will always endear it to us and this was enough for Anne Frank, who also succumbed to its charms, writing about a horse chestnut tree in the centre of Amsterdam, thus also a symbol of hope, of escape and of one day, a return to normality.

A third series of these popular tree essays is again written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five more trees common in the UK. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with trees is explored. The three series have prompted an illustrated book of the essays planned for 2015.

London Festival of Baroque Music 2015

Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610

Live from Westminster Abbey, introduced by Martin Handley.

In the final concert of the London Festival of Baroque Music, James O'Donnell conducts The Choir of Westminster Abbey and St James's Baroque in Monteverdi's stupendous Vespers of 1610.

Monteverdi: Vespers (1610)

The Choir of Westminster Abbey
St James's Baroque
James O'Donnell (conductor)

Monteverdi's Vespers of the Most Holy Virgin is the largest-scale church piece before the time of Bach. It was published in Venice in 1610, when Monteverdi was employed at the court of Mantua, and probably looking for a major church post - he appointed Director of Music at St Mark's in Venice three years later. It was composed on an epic scale, with a choir that is sometimes split into ten parts, challenging solo movements for sopranos, tenors and bass, and virtuoso solo parts for cornetts and violins. It is grand yet intimate, a perfect work for the ringing acoustic of Westminster Abbey, and a celebratory end to the London Festival of Baroque Music.

Further concerts from the London Festival of Baroque Music can be heard on the Early Music Show on 24th and 31st May.

Guy Bovet: Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt

BBC Singers
James McVinnie (organ)
Nicholas Kok (conductor)

In their 90th anniversary season, demonstrating their long-standing commitment to new music , the BBC Singers tonight premiere Richard Blackford's settings of the spiritually-charged poems of Kathleen Raine, and Nico Muhly's 'Spiral Mass' - a piece reflecting its composer's own musical preoccupation with twisting symmetries and helix figures.

Alongside these, pieces which cast a glance back to the music of the past: Judith Bingham's 'The Spirit of Truth' is based on a much-loved anthem by Tallis while Britten's 'Rejoice in the Lamb' pays affectionate homage to the music of Purcell, and his Prelude and Fugue is based on a theme from a Renaissance motet.

Organist James McVinnie performs three new pieces from The Orgelbüchlein Project - in which contemporary composers have written short organ chorale-preludes to fill the pages left blank in J S Bach's famous collection from the early 18th century.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b05vh8sy)
The Meaning of Trees

Cherry

In many countries, cherries are there just to look pretty - a short party trick trotted out once a year which everyone loves and coos at, but then its got to be kept the rest of the year too. True, it has unrivalled spring blossoms, a truly stunning beauty, especially in large numbers. It has much-prized wood and fruit, both of which have a long British pedigree, yet man and global warming have removed 90 per cent of UK cherry trees since 1930. In other countries (Japan especially) it is a sacred tree as a flowering cherry, but the fruit has been monopolised by a few countries - Turkey and the USA especially. Apart from fruit, cherry trees are prized for their swirling, eye-ridden, colourful hardwood which is amongst the most prized for cabinetry and furniture making, and medicinally they can cure gout, fever and help us sleep.

Fulfilment, Beowulf, The Beaux' Stratagem

Are work and progress making us inhuman? Anne McElvoy is joined by Steve Hilton, a former Senior Advisor to David Cameron, and Peter Fleming, Professor of Business and Society at City University, London.

Steve Hilton's new book, More Human, argues that as our world has become more industrialised our lifestyles are becoming more impersonal. He suggests that greater fulfilment would result if we created a more local, more accountable and more human way of living. Peter Fleming's new book is called The Mythology of Work - How Capitalism Persists Despite Itself .

Actor Julian Glover performs an extract from Beowulf and talks about reworking the Old English poem for stage as he prepares to hand over to his son the show which he has taken to theatres over the last 30 years.

Julian Glover's last performances of Beowulf are at the Globe Theatre in London on Sunday May 24th at 1.30 and 7pm.

New Generation Thinker Lucy Powell joins director Simon Godwin to discuss a new production of The Beaux' Stratagem at the National Theatre. How feminist is Farquhar's comedy about love, money and marriage?

The Beaux' Stratagem runs in rep at the National Theatre until mid September.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b05vh8t8)
The Meaning of Trees

Holly

People don't think of holly as a tree, but it is very much a tree. In fact, it is one of our oldest, most enduring trees. A major meaning of Holly is timelessness - it was around in its current form long before the dinosaurs, over 160 million years of endurance of what we see today. That is an unusual achievement and proves its meaning as perfect design. Unlike the majority of trees, Holly also symbolises the separation of the sexes, having both male and female trees. Holly also means food and capture - the berries for birds, and its bark is boiled to produce sticky bird lime which is painted onto tree barks to catch song birds for food in the many countries that did and still do eat them.
The meaning of its name is holy, long being associated with Christmas and for centuries known as the holy tree. It also meant safety from witches, holly trees growing out of the tops of hedges were reputed to stop witches running along the hedge tops.
Holly wood is slow growing and so is very hard. It's whiteness gives good staining properties, so it was coloured black and passed off as much more valuable ebony. The wood of the holly became a global name thanks to its Californian suburb and a mistake.

A third series of these popular tree essays is again written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five more trees common in the UK. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with trees is explored. The three series have prompted an illustrated book of the essays planned for 2015.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b05vh8th)
The Meaning of Trees

Birch

The immediate meaning of Birch to British ears is punishment. Frequently in archaeological finds of Neolithic and later peoples, Birch is present as weapons, canoes, spears, bowls, rope, carts, furniture and most importantly its bark and root funguses as antiseptics and wound dressings. She is known as the 'watchful tree' for the lenticels on her oily, almost indestructible bark have been interpreted as eyes' - overlooking everything happening in the forest. But Birch really is a sentinel, when spring comes, the birch is one of the first trees to come into leaf. The silver birch is a symbol of beauty, much prized in literature, poetry and photography. Birch sap can be drunk neat, or used to brew wine, beer or vinegar. Birch wine is said to prevent gall/kidney stones, a remedy for rheumatic diseases, a cleansing mouthwash, and an acne remedy.

This third series of these popular tree essays is again written and presented by experienced essayist Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, and explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five more trees common in the UK.

Producer - Turan Ali
A Bona Broadcasting production for BBC Radio 3.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b05vh9kz)

Mor produces her own material, which she's been composing from an early age, but also relies on traditional songs across continents, performing in Ladino, Hebrew, Arabic and Spanish providing a fascinating bridge between ancient cultures and traditions.
