SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b079zk09)
Erik Satie at 150

Tom Service re-appraises Erik Satie, the man and his music, on the 150th anniversary of his birth.

Satie was an eccentric figure in Paris: the velvet gentleman with identical suits, who lived in a cramped 'cupboard' in Montmartre before moving to the suburbs in Arcueil. He had an uncanny knack of being involved in all the latest artistic advances of the time, collaborating with Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso among others.

Tom visits some of Satie's favourite haunts in Paris and endeavours to find the truth behind the colourful stories of his eccentric life. At the Musée de Montmartre he discovers Satie's connections with visual artists, and at the Lapin Agile he experiences the form of artistic cabaret as Satie would have encountered it.

With expert opinion from musicologists Caroline Potter and Robert Orledge, pianist Pascal Rogé, composer Kurt Schwertsik, stage director Danielle Mathieu-Bouillon, and Satie enthusiast Alistair McGowan.


SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b07b01r2)

Imaginary Films

Matthew Sweet explores the trend among composers of creating music for films that do not actually exist. Matthew looks at music for "Imaginary films", music written for films that don't exist and also scores for lost films. He interviews Nick Phoenix and Thomas Bergersen from the production company "Two Steps From Hell" about the new phenomenon of "Epic Music" - a genre of orchestral music that has appeared from their creation of music for film trailers, which is often different from the music that features in the final film. The Classic Score of the week is from "Gaslight", a film that was nearly lost as Matthew explains.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Record Requests (b07b01r6)

Also on the programme journalist Sebastian Scotney explores places around the UK where jazz and folk music meet each other, and the relationships between the two including music from Barb Jungr and the collaborative project Quercus featuring singer June Tabor, saxophonist Iain Ballamy and pianist Huw Warren.

Continuing the programme's current season of British music, Jonathan plays works ranging from Handel and Moscheles to Holst and Grainger.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07b25hb)
Rose Tremain

Rose Tremain is one of our finest writers, and her bestselling books - both novels and short stories - are garlanded with prizes. She defies categorisation and is equally at home with historical and contemporary fiction: she has created characters as diverse as Merivel, the physician turned fool at the court of Charles II; a 19th-century gold miner in New Zealand; and a transsexual growing up in rural Suffolk.

Rose talks to Michael Berkeley about her latest novel, The Gustav Sonata, the story of a long and loving relationship between someone who is profoundly musical and somebody who isn't. She chooses music which inspired the story and which features in it: by Schubert, Beethoven and Mahler, as well as music she loved as a teenager and as a student in Paris.

And Rose remembers her inspirational piano teacher, Joyce Hatto, whose career ended in disappointment and scandal many years later.

Producer: Jane Greenwood
A Loftus Media production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b078n3r2)
What Is It About Mozart?

The Listening Service - an odyssey through the musical universe with Tom Service. Join him on a journey of imagination and insight, exploring how music works.

Today's programme asks "What is it about Mozart" - how have his life and music become the template for what a composer should be - a child prodigy, a virtuoso, a cultural monument, not to mention a confectionery industry... And is there anything that we can say is uniquely "Mozartean" - what makes his music so distinctive and why does it connect so readily with audiences? Explore Mozart's music with Tom and see what conclusions you come to.

Each week, Tom aims to open our ears to different ways of imagining a musical idea, a work, or a musical conundrum, on the premise that "to listen" is a decidedly active verb.

How does music connect with us, make us feel that gamut of sensations from the fiercely passionate to the rationally intellectual, from the expressively poetic to the overwhelmingly visceral? What's happening in the pieces we love that takes us on that emotional rollercoaster? And what's going on in our brains when we hear them?

When we listen - really listen - we're not just attending to the way that songs, symphonies, and string quartets work as collections of notes and melodies. We're also creating meanings and connections that reverberate powerfully with other worlds of ideas, of history and culture, as well as the widest range of musical genres. We're engaging the world with our ears. The Listening Service aims to help make those connections, to listen actively.

Tune in and rethink music, with The Listening Service..


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b07b26qd)
Trapped

Today's Words and Music explores the feeling of being trapped, both physically and emotionally. Moll Flanders, Casanova and Alan Bennett's Lady of Letters are all incarcerated in prison. Others, such as Geoffrey Household's Rogue Male and Julia and Winston in Orwell's 1984, are almost as constricted by their circumstances. And for some the entrapment is emotional; Emma Bovary and Mr Rochester are both miserable in their marriages, and desperate to be with the person they really love. Includes music by Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Queen. Extracts are read by Kate Phillips and Tobias Menzies.

Producer - Ellie Mant.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b01hq2bb)
Arnold Wesker

Another chance to hear the playwright Arnold Wesker, who died in April of this year, on the eve of his 80th birthday, looking back at his life and career with Matthew Sweet. Matthew also talks to the theatre critic Michael Billington, Margaret Drabble, the actress Nichola McAuliffe and to the director Dominic Cooke.

The author of 42 plays enjoyed a revival of his work in recent years with productions of 'The Kitchen' and 'Chicken Soup with Barley' but for many years he felt himself to be neglected by the British theatrical establishment. His plays were performed around the world and translated into seventeen languages but were rarely seen in his own country. In 1976 'Shylock', his reworking of 'The Merchant of Venice' closed on Broadway before the opening night when its star, Zero Mostel, died suddenly. And four years earlier, in 1972, Wesker sued the RSC for refusing to stage 'The Journalists', a play they had commissioned and which Wesker had researched at the Sunday Times. For the first time the RSC opened their archives to allow Matthew Sweet to discover what was happening in the company at the time and why the actors refused to perform the play.

MON 09:00 Essential Classics (b07b27lp)
Monday - Rob Cowan with Helen Sharman

9am
My favourite... Hollywood film scores. Rob takes a trip to the cinema as he shares his favourite scores from the golden age of Hollywood. The showreel includes classics such as Max Steiner's soundtrack to Gone with the Wind and Erich Korngold's The Sea Hawk, as well as Bernard Herrmann's iconic shrieking strings accompaniment to Hitchcock's horror movie Psycho.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: can you remember the television show or film that featured this piece of classical music?

10am
Rob's guest is the astronaut Helen Sharman. Helen Sharman made history when she became the first Briton in space in 1991. Helen's space mission came about after she heard a radio advert for an astronaut whilst working as a research chemist. She beat over 13,000 other applicants to become a crew-member on the eight-day mission. Throughout the week Helen will be reflecting on her trip into space twenty-five years on, talking about life after the mission and sharing a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Liszt and Haydn, and Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, which she first saw during astronaut training in Russia.

10:30am
Rob places Music in Time as he explores an extraordinary Baroque representation of the elements: Rebel's Les Elemens.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the British pianist, Clifford Curzon. A pupil of such distinguished figures as Artur Schnabel, Wanda Landowska and Nadia Boulanger, Curzon was praised for his grace and poise at the keyboard. He specialised in music from the Classical and Romantic periods, especially from the Austro-German tradition, and this week, Rob features some of the pianist's most celebrated recordings, including piano sonatas by Brahms and Liszt, piano concertos by Mozart (K.488) and Beethoven (No. 5 'Emperor') and Schubert's ever-popular 'Trout' Quintet.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07b28t6)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Dada Futurist

Satie the Onion: his surreal life viewed in reverse. Donald Macleod peels off the layers, starting with his legacy and his controversial Dadaist final works including Relâche.

Erik Satie's existence was a self-consciously surreal one. He reinvented himself throughout his life, rather like a proto-David Bowie, changing his clothing, his friends, his beliefs, and his music. Though he claimed not to want to, he influenced countless others, but he had a tendency to dramatically fall out with almost everyone he was close to. This week, marking the composer's 150th anniversary, Donald Macleod peels off the layers to examine Satie's life in reverse, beginning with his significant posthumous influence and working back to the early music which is still a household name.

Several contemporary schools of composition draw on Satiean inspiration, not least Minimalism, celebrating Satie since John Cage's championing of his work in the 1960s. Such celebrity was denied Satie for much of his life, but when it did come in his final years, rather than rest on his laurels he courted controversy, ditching earlier friends including Les Six and embracing extreme Dadaism, epitomised in the remarkably forward-looking "Cinema", the filmed entr'acte for the ballet Relache.

Philharmonia Orchestra
Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor

The Philharmonia's Principal Conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen takes the baton in tonight's concert as part of the orchestra's Myths and Rituals series. The concert opens with a work dedicated to the memory of Claude Debussy who died in 1918, the Symphonies of Wind Instruments, a one-movement work scored for wind and brass ensemble. Stravinsky wrote his ballet Agon for twelve dancers, with choreography by George Balanchine. Tonight's performance includes choreography by Karole Armitage. After the interval, the concert concludes with another ballet score - The Rite of Spring, written for the 1913 Paris season of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes company, with choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky. The first performance of the ballet famously caused a near-riot in the audience, but is now regarded as one of the most influential and most recorded and popular works of the 20th century.

Trip Sheets

Trip Sheets: The Actor's Life

1. Writer and broadcaster Michael Goldfarb drove a taxi cab in New York during the 70s while he pursued an acting career. In five essays, he looks back to a time when now-influential cultural figures moonlighted as cabbies, when New York City was as a place of violence, arson and near economic collapse - but also of artistic ferment. And he remembers the artistic celebrities he picked up in the back of his cab. After each cab journey he was obliged to fill in his "trip sheet".

In this first Essay he recalls, the freedom, joy and absurdity of the actor's life and his encounter with the most famous theatre director of the time, Peter Brook.

Satie the Onion: his surreal life viewed in reverse. Donald Macleod peels off the layers, examining the work which earned Satie his own riot: the absurd ballet, Parade.

Erik Satie's existence was a self-consciously surreal one. He reinvented himself throughout his life, rather like a proto-David Bowie, changing his clothing, his friends, his beliefs, and his music. Though he claimed not to want to, he influenced countless others, but he had a tendency to dramatically fall out with almost everyone he was close to.

In 1920, Satie was at the height of his popularity, having in the years since the first world war produced some of his most sincere works. This may partly be due to a subconscious liberation experienced at the death of his former friend Debussy in 1918. Prior to that, still relishing his involvement with Les Six, in 1917 he produced with Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso the surreal masterpiece Parade, a Diaghilev ballet from which the resulting riot nearly landed the composer in jail.

WED 09:00 Essential Classics (b07b2fxp)
Wednesday - Rob Cowan with Helen Sharman

9am
My favourite... Hollywood film scores. Rob takes a trip to the cinema as he shares his favourite scores from the golden age of Hollywood. The showreel includes classics such as Max Steiner's soundtrack to Gone with the Wind and Erich Korngold's The Sea Hawk, as well as Bernard Herrmann's iconic shrieking strings accompaniment to Hitchcock's horror movie Psycho.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: can you work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

10am
Rob's guest is the astronaut Helen Sharman. Helen Sharman made history when she became the first Briton in space in 1991. Helen's space mission came about after she heard a radio advert for an astronaut whilst working as a research chemist. She beat over 13,000 other applicants to become a crew-member on the eight-day mission. Throughout the week Helen will be reflecting on her trip into space twenty-five years on, talking about life after the mission and sharing a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Liszt and Haydn, and Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, which she first saw during astronaut training in Russia.

10:30am
Rob places Music in Time as he delves into the Renaissance period and examines how a poplar song - The Western Wind - was used as a basis for mass settings by three English composers: Tavener, Tye and Sheppard.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the British pianist, Clifford Curzon. A pupil of such distinguished figures as Artur Schnabel, Wanda Landowska and Nadia Boulanger, Curzon was praised for his grace and poise at the keyboard. He specialised in music from the Classical and Romantic periods, especially from the Austro-German tradition, and this week, Rob features some of the pianist's most celebrated recordings, including piano sonatas by Brahms and Liszt, piano concertos by Mozart (K.488) and Beethoven (No. 5 'Emperor) and Schubert's ever-popular 'Trout' Quintet.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07b2g3t)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Silly Season

Satie the Onion: his surreal life viewed in reverse. Donald Macleod peels off the layers, finding Satie's playfulness in full flow with works like his "Flabby Preludes for a Dog".

Erik Satie's existence was a self-consciously surreal one. He reinvented himself throughout his life, rather like a proto-David Bowie, changing his clothing, his friends, his beliefs, and his music. Though he claimed not to want to, he influenced countless others, but he had a tendency to dramatically fall out with almost everyone he was close to. This week, marking the composer's 150th anniversary, Donald Macleod peels off the layers to examine Satie's life in reverse, beginning with his significant posthumous influence and working back to the early music which is still a household name.

Prior to the first world war Satie, as yet not subject to the scrutiny of the fame he would later enjoy, wrote many series of provocative and humorous miniatures, principally for piano. Bizarrely titled and sometimes completely inexplicable, often they had a satirical purpose or a pointed personal message, such as the rather ungentle dig at his then friend Debussy intended by the "Flabby Preludes for a Dog".

From the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Presented by Tom Redmond

Mahler Symphony No.2 'Resurrection'

Olena Tokar (soprano)
Jennifer Johnston (mezzo-soprano)
CBSO Chorus
BBC Philharmonic
Vassily Sinaisky (conductor)

Huge performing forces assemble for Mahler's epic Second Symphony as he takes us on a journey from darkness to light. Beginning with a funeral march, Mahler draws on song (St Anthony of Padua's preaching to the fishes and their nonchalant response, as well as his heart-felt Urlicht) and off-stage brass call to a life beyond. The full forces join for Klopstock's Resurrection hymn. "Whenever I plan a large musical structure I always come to the point where I have to resort to 'the word' as a vehicle for my musical idea'', Mahler said. Soprano Olena Tokar and mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston join the CBSO Chorus, BBC Philharmonic and Vassily Sinaisky for this performance. Mahler said "a symphony is like the world" and this one embraces that sentiment, inviting us to glimpse a world beyond earthly life.

Erik Satie (1866-1925)

School of Satie

Satie the Onion: his surreal life viewed in reverse. Donald Macleod peels off the layers, looking at Satie's mid-life-crisis, when he went back to school and wrote chorales.

Erik Satie's existence was a self-consciously surreal one. He reinvented himself throughout his life, rather like a proto-David Bowie, changing his clothing, his friends, his beliefs, and his music. Though he claimed not to want to, he influenced countless others, but he had a tendency to dramatically fall out with almost everyone he was close to. This week, marking the composer's 150th anniversary, Donald Macleod peels off the layers to examine Satie's life in reverse, beginning with his significant posthumous influence and working back to the early music which is still a household name.

In 1905 at the age of 40 and after several years working as a composer and professional musician, Satie suffered a crisis of confidence and decided that he needed to re-learn the rudiments of music. He studied very successfully at the Schola Cantorum under Vincent D'Indy, and passed on his newly acquired knowledge to youngsters near his home in Arcueil. This decision had been a shock to his closest friends, including his first champion, Claude Debussy.

Offenbach - Le roi Carotte

Penny Gore presents today's Thursday Opera Matinee - a rare chance to hear Offenbach's comic opera Le roi Carotte (King Carrot), performed by Lyon Opera. Originally over six hours long with a cast of hundreds, the price of putting productions on persuaded Offenbach to simplify the work into the more manageble three-act version we'll hear today.
Prince Fridolin has to marry a rich widow to support his kingdom's finances, when really he wants to marry Rosee du Soir, who has just escaped from a witch after ten years in captivity. The angry witch calls on King Carrot and his court of root vegetables to depose Fridolin. Undeterred, Fridolin gets a magician on side, and they embark on a series of adventures including tricking gladiators in Roman Pompeii, and triumphing over the kingdom of insects.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b07b2fxy)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Helen Sharman

9am
My favourite... Hollywood film scores. Rob takes a trip to the cinema as he shares his favourite scores from the golden age of Hollywood. The showreel includes classics such as Max Steiner's soundtrack to Gone with the Wind and Erich Korngold's The Sea Hawk, as well as Bernard Herrmann's iconic shrieking strings accompaniment to Hitchcock's horror movie Psycho.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Rob's guest is the astronaut Helen Sharman. Helen Sharman made history when she became the first Briton in space in 1991. Helen's space mission came about after she heard a radio advert for an astronaut whilst working as a research chemist. She beat over 13,000 other applicants to become a crew-member on the eight-day mission. Throughout the week Helen will be reflecting on her trip into space twenty-five years on, talking about life after the mission and sharing a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Liszt and Haydn, and Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, which she first saw during astronaut training in Russia.

10:30am
Rob places Music in Time as he explores the Romantic period with Liszt's forward-looking Faust Symphony, which not only fuses the symphonic and tone poem genres, but also includes an early use of a twelve note row.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the British pianist, Clifford Curzon. A pupil of such distinguished figures as Artur Schnabel, Wanda Landowska and Nadia Boulanger, Curzon was praised for his grace and poise at the keyboard. He specialised in music from the Classical and Romantic periods, especially from the Austro-German tradition, and this week, Rob features some of the pianist's most celebrated recordings, including piano sonatas by Brahms and Liszt, piano concertos by Mozart (K.488) and Beethoven (No. 5 'Emperor) and Schubert's ever-popular 'Trout' Quintet.

Brahms
Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 5
Clifford Curzon (piano).


FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07b2g3y)
Erik Satie (1866-1925)

Mystic Cabaret

Satie the Onion: his surreal life viewed in reverse. Donald Macleod peels off the layers, reaching the core of mystic spirituality and boozy nightlife - and timeless Gymnopédies.

Erik Satie's existence was a self-consciously surreal one. He reinvented himself throughout his life, rather like a proto-David Bowie, changing his clothing, his friends, his beliefs, and his music. Though he claimed not to want to, he influenced countless others, but he had a tendency to dramatically fall out with almost everyone he was close to. This week, marking the composer's 150th anniversary, Donald Macleod peels off the layers to examine Satie's life in reverse, beginning with his significant posthumous influence and working back to the early music which is still a household name.

Reaching back to the 1880s and 90s Donald unpicks the core of Satie's inspirations: a curious mixture of highly mystical spirituality and rather earthy cabaret. Satie was happy to combine both, writing music for his own church of Jesus Christ the Conductor by day and consuming large quantities of absinthe as a pianist in the legendary Black Cat Café by night. The contradictory qualities of Satie all come together in his earliest and most celebrated work: the Gymnopédies.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b07b2htt)
Handel - Israel in Egypt

Handel's monumental Israel in Egypt is a gripping account of the Jews's slavery-to-triumph journey from Egypt to Israel. The drama of the Old Testament narrative, with its avenging God, plagues, betrayal, setbacks and celebration inspired Handel to reach a peak of choral writing and ambitious orchestration which even he himself rarely equalled and never surpassed.

Martin Handley presents this period instrument performance from Westminster Abbey led by Organist and Master of the Choristers of Westminster Abbey, James O'Donnell.

Handel: Overture to the Occasional Oratorio; Israel in Egypt
The Choir of Westminster Abbey
St James's Baroque
James O'Donnell (conductor).


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b07b2kr9)
Poetry Book Club - Tony Harrison

Throughout 2016 The Verb will be closely examining the work of our finest living poets with our series of 'Poetry Book Clubs', recorded in front of an audience who put their questions to the author. Ian's first guest is Tony Harrison.

Tony Harrison grew up in working class Leeds, and this background has inspired him throughout his work, from his first collection 'The Loiners', published in 1970, to his controversial narrative poem 'v' and his work for theatre and television. Harrison says 'poetry is all I write, whether for books, or readings, or for the National Theatre, or for the opera house and concert hall, or even for TV.'

Recorded in front of an invited audience at the University of Newcastle, Ian McMillan asks Tony Harrison to examine his 'Selected Poems' (Penguin), focusing on his 'From The School of Eloquence' sonnets exploring class and education.

Producer: Cecile Wright.
