SAT 09:00 Record Review (b07cy562)
Building a Library: Schumann: Fantasie

with Andrew McGregor

0930
Building a Library: Kenneth Hamilton recommends a recording of Schumann's Fantasie, Op17

The Fantasie in C major was composed by Robert Schumann in 1836. It is popularly thought of as one of Schumann's greatest works for solo piano. It had its origins in a piece Schumann composed to express his unhappiness at being parted from his beloved Clara Wieck, whom he later married. This later became part of a work meant as a contribution to the appeal for funds to erect a monument to Beethoven in his birthplace, Bonn. It was eventually published in 1839 with a dedication to Franz Liszt.

Andrew talks to organist Wayne Marshall about reissues of the great French organist,composer and pedagogue Marcel Dupré. And recordings of organ music by Charles-Marie Widor.

Britten's Peter Grimes

Jonathan Swain presents a production of Britten's Peter Grimes, recorded at the Theater an der Wien. In one of the most important operas of the 20th Century, Britten turns the sadistic fisherman from the original Crabbe poem into a more ambiguous, tortured individual, despised by the local community after the suspicious death of his apprentice and with only Ellen Orford, the school mistress, as his supporter. Joseph Kaiser and Agneta Eichenholz lead the cast in a musical picture of the intrigue and prejudices within a small English fishing town, dominated by the ever-present sea.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b05xj1r5)
Wake Up Baby

A baby sleeps.
A man in another room watches her on a screen.
Her loving father?
No.
This man does not know this baby. He's in another country, thousands of miles away. And, each night, he watches a different baby.

Wake Up, Baby! is an atmospheric journey into the sometimes unsettling world of "reassuring" technology.

The media storm that surrounded the 1932 'baby Lindbergh kidnap', and the subsequent trial, planted the fear of child abduction into the public imagination. In 1937, Zenith produced the Radio Nurse, the world's first baby monitor, designed to fit well into an elegant sitting room, with a transmitting unit in baby's nursery.

The Radio Nurse was a tiny private radio station, casting baby's cries onto the electromagnetic seas. To feel the presence of baby in whichever room you occupied while she stayed safe in the nursery was a kind of magic - wonderfully reassuring to a couple in their big house. But it was prone to interference. You might hear things other than baby: a police radio, a pilot preparing to land, or even someone else's baby, picked up from a similar device nearby.

The problem of stray interference went away in the digital age. The baby monitor, now with pictures as well as sound, became wi-fi-enabled. In recent years, there have been several well-reported cases of devices being hacked. A couple in Ohio heard "Wake up, baby. Wake up, baby! screaming from their baby's monitor. Someone had taken control of the wi-fi device across the internet.

With contributions from:
Dakin Hart, senior curator, Noguchi Museum, New York
Ashley Stanley, victim of widely-reported webcam hack in Texas
Renate Samson, Chief Executive, Big Brother Watch

Produced by Peregrine Andrews.
A Falling Tree production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b06fl9n6)
Athene Donald

Dame Athene Donald is one of our leading physicists, and an outstanding role model and campaigner for women in science. She is Master of Churchill College, Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge, and as the new head of the British Science Association, she has already made waves suggesting that girls should be given Meccano in preference to Barbie dolls to encourage them into science.

It's physics with a clear practical end - the physics of the everyday - which is her passion. Her expertise lies in developing techniques to study 'soft' materials: the way paint particles stick together, or what happens to things when you cook them, or more recently, the generic way protein molecules stick together, which, for some very specific proteins, is the process which underlies Alzheimer's disease. A life-long promoter of women in science, she is a recipient of the L'Oreal-UNESCO Award for Women in Science in Europe and writes a popular and entertaining blog about science, women, the wider world, and sometimes music too.

A talented viola player, she considered a career in music as a teenager, and her choice of music reflects her continued love of the instrument: Bach's 6th Brandenburg Concerto, Janacek's Second String Quartet, known as 'Intimate Letters', and Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola which she played with her husband, a mathematician - and violinist.

Keen to promote women in music as well as women in science, she's also chosen music by the French composer Lili Boulanger.

The libretto was written by Nicola Francesco Haym who used an earlier libretto by Giacomo Francesco Bussani.

The Power of Love Songs

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.

With Valentines Day just around the corner, Tom explores the enduring power of love songs. He talks to Ted Gioia, author of Love Songs: The Hidden History who explains that the very first traces of writing in human history are hymns to love. The tenor Ian Bostridge reflects on the inward-looking art of Lieder and what they tell us about true love in the Romantic era. And Tom turns to the operatic stage for some of the ultimate expressions of love as a subversive and even revolutionary force, showing how Verdi and Strauss used thwarted lovers in their operas to shine a light on the hypocrisy and gender politics of their times.

Tune in and rethink music with The Listening Service.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b07cyfnc)

Griff Rhys Jones and Debra Stephenson delve into nonsense literature, from Anglo-Saxon riddles to limericks by Edward Lear, a poem by Brendel and Lewis Carroll, with music by Bach, Ligeti and Gilbert and Sullivan.

Literary Pursuits

Jane Austen's Persuasion

Sarah Dillon discovers how Jane Austen's last completed novel, 'Persuasion' was written. The novel has sometimes been viewed as Austen's valedictory novel - written while she was suffering with her final illness. But Sarah Dillon uncovers a more complex story: dates of revisions on the manuscripts in the British Library confirm her sister's story that Persuasion was completed almost a year before Austen's death, but it was only published posthumously. By talking to Dr Kathryn Sutherland from St Anne's College, Oxford, Paula Byrne, author of 'The Real Jane Austen, A Life In Small Things' and writer Margaret Drabble, we go behind the scant details of Austen's life and uncover reasons for the delay: her last illness; the possibly personal inspirations for the plot of the novel; the state of her finances; her fascinating creative process; and the radical reaches and determination of her literary ambitions.

Time and the Conways

Harriet Walter stars in J.B. Priestley's well-known play from 1937 which toys with the idea of time, telling the story of one family in several scenes set over 19 years. One of Britain's leading writers of the inter-war years, Priestley was fascinated by the concept of time and was inspired by the theories of J.W Dunne and his book An Experiment WithTime.

A World War has just ended. The Conway family gather to celebrate daughter Kay's 21st birthday party. But 19 years later we see that the future is far from the one they imagined.

Pianist: Colin Guthrie.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07cyk0l)
George Gershwin (1898-1937)

A Natural Performer

This week Donald Macleod explores the colourful life and music of George Gershwin. Today Gershwin brings in the crowds on Broadway and in the concert hall.

A life cut short, George Gershwin died in 1937 of a brain tumour at the age of just 38. Yet this isn't a story of what might have been. Gershwin's musical legacy stands as one of admirable achievement. He wrote a string of twelve Broadway musicals, orchestral music and an opera. He penned some of the most recorded tunes in the popular song catalogue of all time. We'll hear many of them across the week, in classic versions made by some of the twentieth century's legendary voices, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Outside the sphere of popular music, Gershwin's orchestral music won plenty of public support although his critical reception was mixed. Nonetheless among his supporters were significant figures in the classical world such as the New York Philharmonic's Walter Damrosch.
Despite the breadth of his appeal, his professional standing and his wealth, Gershwin remained a man who never felt truly confident in his own musical knowledge, perhaps because his musical education had been limited by circumstance. He was born in 1898 in New York, the second son of Jewish immigrant parents, Morris and Rose Gershowitz. As a child George excelled on roller-skates rather than school-work. Leaving altogether at the age of 14 he was pounding away on a piano in Tin Pan Alley for 10 hours a day. Success came early though when he persuaded Al Jolson to record his song "Swanee". The two million records it sold made George a comfortable pile, and from there on, as they say, "the rest is history".

As a song plugger on Tin Pan Alley Gershwin was introduced to Fred and his sister Adele, going on a few years later to produce a Broadway musical for them, "Lady Be Good" and establishing himself as concert pianist, taking five curtain calls at the premiere of his jazz concerto "Rhapsody in Blue".

James O'Donnell, conductor

Composed at white-heat in the summer of 1739, and a triumphant comeback for Handel after months of poor health, Saul was the longest, largest, most powerfully theatrical English stage work to date. The story of the Israelites' quest for a king includes the tales of Goliath, the Witch of Endor, and the passionate relationship of David and Jonathan, leavened with murderous jealousy, terrible pathos and tragic greatness - all illuminated by Handel's finest music.

Today Edmund de Waal, artist and writer of the memoir 'The Hare With Amber Eyes' considers the idea of storytelling through objects, taking as his starting-point a fragment of 12th century porcelain he bought in a Chinese street-market.

Part of Radio 3's week-long residency at the Hay Festival, with programmes In Tune, Lunchtime Concert, Free Thinking and The Verb all broadcasting from the Festival.

George Gershwin (1898-1937)

Backstage Dramas

This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of George Gershwin. Today Gershwin enjoys good business on Broadway and in London's West End as well as keeping up his appearances as a pianist on the concert platform.

A life cut short, George Gershwin died in 1937 of a brain tumour at the age of just 38. Yet this isn't a story of what might have been. Gershwin's musical legacy stands as one of admirable achievement. He wrote a string of twelve Broadway musicals, orchestral music and an opera. He penned some of the most recorded tunes in the popular song catalogue of all time. We'll hear many of them across the week, in classic versions made by some of the twentieth century's legendary voices, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland.

The two million records it sold made George a comfortable pile, and from there on, as they say, "the rest is history".

Building on the success garnered with "Lady Be Good" Gershwin and his lyricist partner, brother Ira, had three more shows opening on Broadway and a further three in London. As if that wasn't enough, after a short break in Europe, Gershwin returned with sketches for a new concerto, which naturally enough would feature himself as the pianist for the premiere at Carnegie Hall.

10am
Sarah's special guest, especially for the week of BBC Music Day, is the musician, composer and broadcaster Guy Garvey. He's the front man of rock band Elbow, who have released six studio albums, won the Mercury Music Prize, headlined at Glastonbury and performed a specially written song for the closing of the 2012 Olympics in London. Guy also released a solo album last year, which reached the top three of the album charts.

She reveals the virtuosity of Paganini's dramatic writing for violin in a selection of his caprices, including the most well known, number 24. This was known for years as the most fiendishly difficult violin piece ever written, and dozens of composers were inspired to use it as the theme for sets of variations - from Liszt and Rachmaninov to Andrew Lloyd Webber.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07cykyg)
George Gershwin (1898-1937)

War and Warriors

This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of George Gershwin. Today Gershwin moves in an entirely new direction, creating his own brand of musical satire.

A life cut short, George Gershwin died in 1937 of a brain tumour at the age of just 38. Yet this isn't a story of what might have been. Gershwin's musical legacy stands as one of admirable achievement. He wrote a string of twelve Broadway musicals, orchestral music and an opera. He penned some of the most recorded tunes in the popular song catalogue of all time. We'll hear many of them across the week, in classic versions made by some of the twentieth century's legendary voices, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Outside the sphere of popular music, Gershwin's orchestral music won plenty of public support although his critical reception was mixed. Nonetheless among his supporters were significant figures in the classical world such as the New York Philharmonic's Walter Damrosch.
Despite the breadth of his appeal, his professional standing and his wealth, Gershwin remained a man who never felt truly confident in his own musical knowledge, perhaps because his musical education had been limited by circumstance. He was born in 1898 in New York, the second son of Jewish immigrant parents, Morris and Rose Gershowitz. As a child George excelled on roller-skates rather than school-work. Leaving altogether at the age of 14 he was pounding away on a piano in Tin Pan Alley for 10 hours a day. Success came early though when he persuaded Al Jolson to record his song "Swanee". The two million records it sold made George a comfortable pile, and from there on, as they say, "the rest is history".

Following a meeting in Atlantic City with the producer Edgar Selwyn, Gershwin and his lyricist writing brother Ira, are invited to work on a satire on war written by George S. Kaufman, the man behind the Marx Brothers production of The Cocoanuts. What came out of the collaboration was "Strike Up The Band" a musical unlike anything the Gershwins had ever written before.

Hellens manor is one of the oldest residences in the the UK; it has stood in the village of Much Marcle in Herefordshire since at least the 12th century. Today, Hellens welcomes Radio 3 to the intimate surroundings of its Great Barn for a concert from its annual spring music festival. Festival director and pianist Christian Blackshaw leads a starry line-up of performers including: Markus Däunert, Concertmaster of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra; Maya Iwabuchi, Leader of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Máté Szücs, Principal Viola of the Berlin Philharmonic; Bruno Delepelaire, first solo cellist of the Berlin Philharmonic and Waldemar Schwiertz, Co-principal double bass of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.
Both quintets in today's programme became instantly popular with audiences and performers. Here, the emotional power of Shostakovich's music is balanced with the irresistible good humour of Schubert's most famous chamber work.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b07cypf6)
Hay Festival: Inheritance - Steve Jones, Lionel Shriver, Marlon James

Lionel Shriver, Marlon James and Steve Jones join Rana Mitter for a Free Thinking discussion about inheritance recorded at this week's Hay Festival. The discussion ranges from family relationships to the planet we are leaving for future generations, from money to morality, genius to ideas about goodness and evil.

Lionel Shriver's latest novel called The Mandibles depicts a family living in a near future America where the dollar has crashed and food is scarce. She is also the author of We Need To Talk About Kevin, Big Brother and A Perfectly Good Family.

The biologist and geneticist Steve Jones' latest book No Need For Geniuses looks at Paris at the time of the French Revolution, when it was the world capital of science.

Marlon James won the Booker Prize for his most recent novel A Brief History of Seven Killings. His other books include Crow's Devil and The Book of Night Women.

George Gershwin (1898-1937)

Anyone for Tennis?

Donald Macleod explores the life and music of George Gershwin. Today Gershwin discovers writing music for Hollywood films can be a frustrating business.

A life cut short, George Gershwin died in 1937 of a brain tumour at the age of just 38. Yet this isn't a story of what might have been. Gershwin's musical legacy stands as one of admirable achievement. He wrote a string of twelve Broadway musicals, orchestral music and an opera. He penned some of the most recorded tunes in the popular song catalogue of all time. We'll hear many of them across the week, in classic versions made by some of the twentieth century's legendary voices, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Outside the sphere of popular music, Gershwin's orchestral music won plenty of public support although his critical reception was mixed. Nonetheless among his supporters were significant figures in the classical world such as the New York Philharmonic's Walter Damrosch.
Despite the breadth of his appeal, his professional standing and his wealth, Gershwin remained a man who never felt truly confident in his own musical knowledge, perhaps because his musical education had been limited by circumstance. He was born in 1898 in New York, the second son of Jewish immigrant parents, Morris and Rose Gershowitz. As a child George excelled on roller-skates rather than school-work.

The two million records it sold made George a comfortable pile, and from there on, as they say, "the rest is history".

Signed up by RKO pictures, Gershwin moved to the West Coast in 1936. In typical workaholic fashion he immediately set to work, producing simultaneously music for the Astaire vehicle "Shall We Dance?" and another picture with Astaire "A Damsel in Distress". Gershwin was happy to embrace the lifestyle, enjoying a hectic social calendar full of dinners and parties at the homes of producers, stars and songwriters. Arnold Schoenberg was a neighbour, and soon came round on a regular basis to play tennis with him. Even so, Gershwin began to get restless, and there was talk of making a return to Broadway, a string quartet, a symphony or even a ballet.

Strauss - Ariadne auf Naxos

Penny Gore presents today's opera matinée: a performance given at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, of Richard Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos.

Karita Mattila stars in one of Strauss's great soprano roles as the Prima Donna who appears later as Ariadne and Roberto Sacca is the Tenor, later Bacchus, in this often funny work, which sets a libretto by Strauss's greatest collaborator, Hugo von Hoffmansthal. The work was originally intended as a short divertissement to be performed after Hoffmansthal's version of Molière's Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, but was revised as an opera in a prologue and one act. Antonio Pappano conducts the Royal Opera House Orchestra in Christof Loy's production from 2014.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b07cyp0d)
Philharmonia Orchestra: Stravinsky Myths and Rituals

'Music,' said Stravinsky 'is essentially powerless to express anything at all'. But for all his deliberately misleading protestations Stravinsky, long-exiled from his homeland, often tapped a deep and deeply personal vein of nostalgia in his music, never more so than as he entered his old age and lived furthest away from Russia itself.

The third of Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra's all-Stravinsky Series 'Myths & Rituals' is a chance to hear a sequence of rarely performed late, great religious and memorial works whose austere sound-world nevertheless conveys their composer's longings and faith, both of which which he was loath to express in any other medium.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch from St John's Smith Square, London.

Stravinsky:
Requiem Canticles
Introitus (TS Eliot in Memoriam)
In Memoriam Dylan Thomas
Mass
Elegy for JFK
Cantata

The Art of Storytelling: David Crystal

In this series of The Essay, recorded this week in front of an audience at Hay Festival, five writers explore The Art of Storytelling. The writers include artist and memoirist Edmund de Waal, broadcaster and musician Clemency Burton-Hill, Shakespeare scholar Professor Emma Smith and novelist Jon Gower.

Today, with so many of the world's languages disappearing, Professor David Crystal asks how we can preserve for the future the many different stories of accent, dialect and language.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (b07cypq3)
Late Junction Sessions

Verity Sharp with Seb Rochford and Matana Roberts

Verity Sharp celebrates the marriage of drummer Seb Rochford and saxophonist Matana Roberts with a very unusual Late Junction collaboration session.

Seb and Matana - each a leading experimental musician - had previously said they would not have any shared public projects. However, to mark their marriage in March, they have agreed to do a special one-off collaboration especially for Late Junction at BBC's Maida Vale studio.

Over the last 10 years drummer Seb Rochford has forged a new direction in UK jazz combining dub inspired rhythms and off-kilter grooves with his band Polar Bear and in a host of other notable collaborations. Working across the Atlantic, Matana Roberts' visceral saxophone and multimedia work is steeped in the history of American music. Her highly praised Coin Coin project celebrates strong female archetypes in the history of Southern America.

Plus the aptly named new band drøne combine short wave radio and modular synths and a track from Bert Jansch's 1985 LP 'From The Outside' which has been given a limited edition vinyl reissue.

George Gershwin (1898-1937)

The Dream Team

Donald Macleod explores the life and music of George Gershwin. Today, as part of BBC Music Day's theme of collaboration, a look at how George worked with his regular lyricist and brother Ira.

A life cut short, George Gershwin died in 1937 of a brain tumour at the age of just 38. Yet this isn't a story of what might have been. Gershwin's musical legacy stands as one of admirable achievement. He wrote a string of twelve Broadway musicals, orchestral music and an opera. He penned some of the most recorded tunes in the popular song catalogue of all time. We'll hear many of them across the week, in classic versions made by some of the twentieth century's legendary voices, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Louis Armstrong, Fred Astaire and Judy Garland. Outside the sphere of popular music, Gershwin's orchestral music won plenty of public support although his critical reception was mixed. Nonetheless among his supporters were significant figures in the classical world such as the New York Philharmonic's Walter Damrosch.
Despite the breadth of his appeal, his professional standing and his wealth, Gershwin remained a man who never felt truly confident in his own musical knowledge, perhaps because his musical education had been limited by circumstance. He was born in 1898 in New York, the second son of Jewish immigrant parents, Morris and Rose Gershowitz. As a child George excelled on roller-skates rather than school-work. Leaving altogether at the age of 14 he was pounding away on a piano in Tin Pan Alley for 10 hours a day. Success came early though when he persuaded Al Jolson to record his song "Swanee". The two million records it sold made George a comfortable pile, and from there on, as they say, "the rest is history".

Together George and Ira Gershwin wrote a string of twelve Broadway musicals, beginning with Lady Be Good in 1924 and culminating in 1933 with Let 'Em Eat Cake. They wrote for Hollywood films and had a string of hits that have all gone on to stand on their own. They worked together right up to the end of George Gershwin's life.
