SAT 09:00 CD Review (b060zhvv)
Building a Library: Rodgers and Hammerstein: Carousel

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Edward Seckerson compares available versions of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel and makes a personal recommendation.

After 1943, Rodgers and Hammerstein had a problem. How could they possibly follow the phenomenal Broadway success of Oklahoma!? Two years later, the story of fairground barker Billy Bigelow and millworker Julie Jordan in 19th-century Maine was their answer. Carousel, with its themes of despair, illegitimacy, childhood misery and the redemptive power of love, prompted Stephen Sondheim to declare 'whilst Oklahoma! is about a picnic, Carousel is about life.'

Carousel's string of unforgettable numbers ("June is Bustin' Out All Over", "If I Loved You", "When the Children are Asleep" and "You'll Never Walk Alone") struck a chord with wartime audiences. Fifty years on, it can be seen as one of the great stage works of the 20th century.

1045
Nowadays studio recordings of grand opera by major record companies seem almost like a thing of the past. So when Warner Classics announced that they were recording the grandest of all grand operas, Verdi's Aida, CD Review decided it had to be there to report on the sessions. Andrew McGregor went to Rome to eavesdrop on this recording, made in the fabled acoustics of Santa Cecilia's concert hall. Conductor Antonio Pappano leads a stellar cast including Jonas Kaufmann, Anja Harteros, Ekaterina Semenchuk, Ludovic Tessier and Erwin Schrott. Includes interviews with the artists and extracts from the new recording, due to be released in the autumn.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0457qk5)
Irving Finkel

Assyriologist Irving Finkel talks to Michael Berkeley about his passion for clay tablets, chamber music, and Jimi Hendrix.

Irving Finkel is one of the world's leading experts in the world's oldest, and most impenetrable, system of writing - cuneiform.

Because the scribes of Ancient Mesopotamia imprinted cuneiform with a stylus into clay tablets, lots of it has survived, and indeed Irving Finkel has spent the past 45 years delighting in the company of more than 130,000 cuneiform tablets at the British Museum. But one day a member of the public brought in a clay tablet which changed his life - it was a 4000-year-old blueprint for Noah's Ark - a thousand years older than the story in the Bible.

Irving is also passionate about music - particularly old recordings - and his choices include string quartets by Schubert and Dvorak, 1930s blues and a blast of Jimi Hendrix.

Producer: Jane Greenwood.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b060zkjl)
HG and the H-Bomb

Samira Ahmed unearths the extraordinary role of HG Wells in the creation of the nuclear bomb 70 years ago - and how a simple, devastating idea led to the world we know today.

In his 1914 novel The World Set Free, Wells imagined bombs that destroy civilisation and lead to a new world order. But his "atomic bombs" - a name he conceived - are grenades that keep on exploding.

How did this idea become a reality? Samira discovers the strange conjunction of science-fiction and fact that spawned the bomb as Wells mixed with key scientists and politicians such as Lenin and Churchill. Churchill claimed Wells was solely responsible for the use of aeroplanes and tanks in the First World War. Thanks to Wells, Churchill was also ahead of many in writing about the military potential of nuclear weapons - as he did in his 1924 article for the Pall Mall Gazette, "Shall We All Commit Suicide?"

In London's Russell Square, Samira retraces the steps of Hungarian physicist Leo Szilard who conceived the neutron chain reaction. Amid the bustle and noise of the capital in 1933, he suddenly realised how to exploit the potential of nuclear energy and - because he'd read Wells - the devastating impact it would have.

But what could he do? How easy is it to keep a secret in the scientific community, with war looming? Once a dangerous, world-changing idea exists, is it possible to contain it?

To find out, Samira speaks to nuclear physicist Dr Elizabeth Cunningham; Graham Farmelo, author of Churchill's Bomb; Professor Lisa Jardine; Andrew Nahum, chief curator of "Churchill's Scientists" at the Science Museum, London; and Michael Sherborne, author of HG Wells - Another Kind of Life.

SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b060zkjn)
Melvyn Tan - Beethoven and Schubert

Melvyn Tan plays Beethoven and Schubert on two Viennese fortepianos at Finchcocks Musical Museum.
Situated in the heart of the Kent countryside, Finchcocks Musical Museum contains one of the world's finest collections of early keyboard instruments. Tonight, Melvyn Tan plays the music of Schubert and Beethoven on two Viennese pianos of the sort that the composers themselves would have played. Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Beethoven: Sonata No.11 in B flat major, Op.22
Schubert: 6 Moments musicaux, D780

approx. 8.25pm Interval Music: Emma Kirkby sings Thomas Arne's cantata The Morning.

c. 8.50pm
Beethoven: 6 Bagatelles, Op.126
Schubert: 4 Impromptus, Op.90, D899

The opening Beethoven sonata is conceived on a grand scale and in it he explores the very specific sonic capabilities of the Viennese pianos of the time; the theatrical decrescendo into the bass in the first movement promises to sound especially dramatic when played on the beautiful c.1815 Johann Fritz piano at Finchcocks. In the second half, Melvyn Tan switches to a superlative piano by Conrad Graf which dates from 1826, precisely the time that the remainder of the music in tonight's concert was written
Beethoven's aphoristic Opus 126 Bagatelles don't just showcase his compositional practice but prove a remarkable vehicle for demonstrating the capabilities of the Viennese piano itself. Conrad Graf loaned one of his pianos to Beethoven at the time he was writing the Op.126 Bagatelles but, alas the composer was too deaf to hear these, his last works. In contrast to the shard-like beauty of Beethoven's bagatelles, it'll be fascinating to hear the lyrical, bitter-sweet world of some of Schubert's most popular music realised on two pianos of his time; for many listeners, they'll probably never be able to hear them the same way again.


SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 (b060zkjq)
Scribblers

By Steve Waters. Dramatising the shadowy relationship between the state and the stage in the 1730s, 'Scribblers' focuses on the relationship between young playwright Henry Fielding and the First Minister Robert Walpole. Tracking back and forth between high politics and the emergence of a fringe theatre of real dissent, it explores the premature birth of political theatre through the mad-cap work of Fielding before it was strangled by the Licensing Act of 1737.

A Cast Iron production for BBC Radio 3.

Steve Waters' plays include English Journeys (1998), After the Gods (2002) and Fast Labour (2008) - all produced on Hampstead Theatre Main Stage; The Contingency Plan (2009), Little Platoons (2011), Ignorance/Jahiliyyah (2012) and Temple (2015) - currently playing at Donmar Warehouse. His radio play Bretton Woods was broadcast on Radio 3 in 2014. Steve lectures in creative writing at the University of East Anglia.

He's written scripts for satirical TV shows including The Thick of It and BBC Radio's The Now Show, and the controversial series Brass Eye.

Born in Odessa, Milstein studied with the great Hungarian violin teacher Leopold Auer at the St Petersburg Conservatory before settling in New York. With a career that lasted an incredible 72 years, he was worthy of his title 'the prince of the violin'.

Sally has been composing since she was a child but only set out on the path of professional composer after moving to Scotland in 1990, having already established a successful career as a viola player.

Novelist Sunjeev Sahota was included in Granta magazine's most recent list of the 20 most promising young British novelists under 40. He talks about his new novel which depicts the different experiences of migrant workers who have travelled from India to Sheffield. Playwright and author Neil Bartlett discusses his project at the Wellcome Collection which asks members of the public to answer anonymously a series of questions about attitudes to sex.

Sunjeev Sahota's novel is called The Year of the Runaways.
Pather Panchali is available on DVD.
The Institute of Sexology runs at the Wellcome Collection until September 20th. Neil Bartlett will be in Conversation there on July 23rd 19.00 - 20.00 and his project will be archived in the Wellcome Library once the exhibition ends.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b033bsfn)
A Taste of Summer in America

Corn on the Cob

Author and journalist Susan Orleans, learned in second grade how the Pilgrims would have starved had Native Americans not taught them how to grow corn. Since then, she developed a lifelong appreciation of a food staple but it is only in the summer that she craves it.

In this week marking the Fourth of July holiday, five American writers describe seminal summer eating experiences. Funny, emotional, poignant and informative, these five talks describe how no matter how much life changes, eating outdoors in summer and rediscovering a favourite food is what makes summer memories.

Later in the series, Nathan Englander discovers that Wisconsin cheeses are as varied and exquisite as anything he's eaten in France. TC Boyle charts his summers according to his memories of cookouts and each grilling adventure changes according to his stage of life but also his location, as he moves across America. Simon Van Booy compares two kinds of food in a bun, which he buys at two very different New York beaches. The humble Coney Island hotdog is perfect for an urban seaside with fairground attractions but in the sophisticated Hamptons, he prefers an elegant, and much more expensive, lobster roll. It is dessert that Audrey Niffenegger most associates with her summers and most of all, her love of rhubarb and ice cream.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b060zmpm)
The Bad Plus

A second chance to hear 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

Revised repeat of programme first broadcast 12/01/2015.

Robert Levin (director and harpsichord)

American keyboard player and musicologist Robert Levin has devised this programme which focuses on some of Mozart's early works, starting with the 16-year-old Mozart in the Lucio Silla overture of 1772. The following year he composed a concerto that became known as his Fifth Piano Concerto - heard here played on the harpsichord, as Mozart himself would sometimes have done. This is preceded by Robert Levin's completion of an early Mozart concerto. Mozart's debt to his friend and mentor Johann Christian Bach is reflected in a Mozart arrangement of one of his keyboard works, and the concert ends with Mozart as an 18-year-old in his landmark Symphony No.29.


TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b060zryf)
Landmark - Jaws: Sharks and Whales

Novelist Will Self, shark expert Gareth Fraser and film expert Ian Hunter join Matthew Sweet for a discussion about sharks, whales and the impact of the book and film Jaws.

Jaws started out as a novel which reads as a sociological study of a small American coastal resort full of rather unlikeable characters. It ended up as an iconic film whose heroes engage in a fight to the death with a Great White Man-Eating Machine. Matthew Sweet discusses how the shark came to fill the space once held by the whale, why big teeth still fill our nightmares and whether all publicity is good publicity for the denizens of the oceans with writer Will Self, whose novel 'Shark' was inspired by the film, and Gareth Fraser, who now studies the dental configurations of sharks all because he once sat in a dark cinema, as did life-long Jaws fan, the film expert Ian Hunter.
The artist Fiona Tan, whose new exhibition is partly inspired by 'Jonah the Giant Whale', a preserved whale exhibited inside a lorry which toured across Europe from the 1950s to the mid-1970s will also appear out of the deep.

A Taste of Summer in America

Cheeseheads

In the second talk about summer eating in the week that Americans celebrate Independence Day, Nathan Englander samples local cheeses in his adopted town of Madison, Wisconsin.

As a child, New Yorker Nathan Englander's only exposure to cheese in a Kosher home, were plastic wrapped slices that his mum used as a topping for her spaghetti with ketchup. Now that he is temporarily living in the university town of Madison Wisconsin, he is discovering a completely different America where he feels very much the curious outsider.

Here, cheese is taken seriously and especially celebrated when the long winter is over. Locals call themselves Cheeseheads and wear yellow foam hats at sports events and summer games. The variety of cheeses sold by farmers in the street markets are as exotic and delicious as any cheese Nathan has tasted in France. However what he adores most is a homely dish called cheese curds, which are battered and fried. Perhaps that is because deep down, he is bonded to bland flavourless food, despite all his attempts to run away from it.

Later in this series: TC Boyle charts his summers according to memories of cookouts at each stage of his life. Simon Van Booy compares two kinds of food in a bun, at two very different New York beaches, Coney Island and the Hamptons on Long Island. Audrey Niffenegger most associates ice cream with summers but now that she can no longer eat it, she is desperately exploring alternatives and substitutes.

They discuss her songs setting words by the 14th century Persian poet Hafez, an orchestral work evoking the Arctic landscape that inspired Mary Shelley, and a cello concerto that takes as its starting point the 'River' poems of Ted Hughes. One of Beamish's major works, the Concerto no. 2 for Viola and Orchestra, is based on the story told by a 9th century Anglo-Saxon poem, 'The Seafarer', and features the notated calls of sea birds mentioned in the poem.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b033d38p)
A Taste of Summer in America

The Cookout

Five essays by writers about the joys of summer eating experiences across America. In this episode, TC Boyle remembers cookouts in suburban New York, Ohio and wooded California.

TC Boyle prefers the word "cookout" to the southern term "BBQ". For him, eating from the grill is the biggest thrill of the summer. It marks the freedom, the outdoors living, the scratch meals, and the camaraderie of the long hot days.

The cookouts of his childhood were opportunities for neighbourhood kids to get together and escape household rules. In his hippy years in Ohio, meals at the grill were very functional because everyone was so adept at eating this way. Later as a family man in California, he has to defend his meals from bears and rats.

Next up in this series, Simon Van Booy compares two kinds of food in a bun, which he buys at two very different New York beaches - Coney Island and the Hamptons on Long Island. And Audrey Niffenegger's essay is her tale of a passion for ice cream, which can no longer be requited.

A Taste of Summer in America

Two Seaside Buns

Simon Van Booy grew up in Wales and loved sausages and the sausage sandwiches his father made to take on fishing trips. So when he moved to New York, he regularly ate hotdogs, and on the boardwalk at Coney Island, he bought the classic frankfurter in a bun and french fries, jostled by the crowds eating fairground food under neon lights.

But he was at a college on Long Island, in the Hamptons, where the rich come to play and eat fabulously expensive lobster rolls. Though the bun is the exactly the same as the hot dog bun, it is filled with lobster and mayonnaise.

He's written scripts for satirical TV shows including The Thick of It and BBC Radio's The Now Show, and the controversial series Brass Eye.

Born in Odessa, Milstein studied with the great Hungarian violin teacher Leopold Auer at the St Petersburg Conservatory before settling in New York. With a career that lasted an incredible 72 years, he was worthy of his title 'the prince of the violin'.

Scott Dickinson (viola)
BBC Singers
Kaspars Putnins (conductor)

In holiday mood, the BBC Singers - directed by the Latvian choral conductor Kaspars Putnins and joined by the viola-player Scott Dickinson - perform a programme on the theme of sun, sea and summer nights. The music includes a choral portrait of the Mediterranean by the Finnish composer Olli Kortekangas, and a Manx sea-scape, for solo viola, by Paul Patterson. Bob Chilcott's 'Beach' is a poignant reminiscence of childhood days at the seaside - like Britten's 'Elegy': the 16-year-old composer commemorating his final summer term at school in Lowestoft. Also in the concert, summer partsongs by Brahms and Schumann, and the Dutch composer Ton de Leeuw's setting of words from the Song of Solomon which depict vines in bloom and love in the air. And, completing the programme, Cecilia McDowall's musical portrayal of a historic night spent not on the ground but soaring above it - the evening in 1912 when Harriet Quimby became the first woman to fly a plane across the English Channel.

(Producer, Michael Emery).

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b033d3h9)
A Taste of Summer in America

Homecoming

Novelist Audrey Niffenegger celebrates the joys of summer ice cream. But now that she can no longer eat it, what could take its place? Last in a series on summer eating in America.

Growing up in Evanston, Illinois, outside Chicago, Audrey Niffenegger enjoyed summers of wonderful ice cream. Evanston was the headquarters of the Christian Temperance Union, so ice cream was one of the few indulgences. In fact in adult life, a simple scoop of vanilla remained her absolute passion. Until, a fateful day when she developed severe bronchitis and became allergic to milk. Now she is on a mission to replace her summer treat. And what really brings back the joys of summer, comes when she revisits a totally different food - rhubarb pie.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b06121zl)
Lopa Kothari - Khiyo in Session

Lopa Kothari with new tracks from across the globe, plus a live session with British-Bengali band Khiyo.

Khiyo is named after a letter in the Bengali alphabet - as the band says, it's actually a combination of two letters, but has an identity of its own. In the same way, the band brings together styles from traditional Bengali music with western influences, creating a unique blend. Lead singer Sohini Alam is a British singer of Bangladeshi descent, a third-generation vocalist who learned from her mother and her aunts. The band's debut album has just been released.

Plus the latest from BBC Introducing, and another dip into the Radio 3 World Music Archive.
World on 3 sessions are available for download as a podcast via the home page.
