James Rhodes

In the second of two programmes this month pianist James Rhodes presents music that's changed his life: including recordings by iconic twentieth century pianists Glenn Gould and Vladimir Ashkenazy, and performances by some of today's leading virtuosi including Marc-Andre Hamelin, Joseph Moog, and Evgeny Kissin. Plus extracts from The Marriage of Figaro conducted by Teodor Currentzis.

Until the age of 14, James had no formal academic musical education or dedicated mentoring. Aged 18 he stopped playing the piano entirely for a decade. Since returning to the piano, he has released five albums, all of which have topped the iTunes classical charts. His bestselling memoir, Instrumental, is a moving and compelling story that was almost banned until the Supreme Court unanimously overthrew an injunction in May 2015. He has performed in venues around the world from the Barbican, Roundhouse, Royal Albert Hall, Latitude Festival, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Soho Theatre in the UK to halls in Paris, Australia, Hong Kong, Chicago, Vienna and more.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b07gn38t)
A Beastly Midsummer Night

The sun is setting on the summer solstice, the twilight slipping towards Midsummer's Night - an enchanted evening heavy with possibility, where real life blends into fantasy.

A family of four set off on an adventure to a Norfolk wood. They search for kindling and logs to build a bonfire to mark this special time of year. On their journey they are lured into the hidden magic and mischief of the natural world: the life and death struggle of owls and mice, the glistering swirl of the evening chorus, the flutter of insect wings, all of which power the story of this special night narrated by naturalist and writer Bridget Nicholls.

In the dying light of the day, as the family toast marshmallows over the embers of the fire, the mosquitoes and moths swirl above them, giddy in the sugary air.

As darkness descends and the family head back to the house, we realise the adventures of the natural world are not over yet.

Produced by Sarah Peters, music and sound design by Iain Chambers, mixed by Peregrine Andrews. An Open Audio production for BBC Radio 3.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b07gn38w)
Peteris Vasks - Vale of Glamorgan Festival

Ivan Hewett explores some recent compositions by Peteris Vasks who turned seventy in April this year. Vasks music is often tinged with an elegiac nostalgia for his homeland. It often incorporates folklore elements, placing them within a dynamic and challenging relationship with the language of contemporary music. The recordings were all made at the recent Vale of Glamorgan Festival and its director, John Metcalf joins Ivan this evening. Peteris Vasks was a guest at the festival and was present at the world premiere of a new viola concerto for former Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Maxim Rysanov, a work featuring two cadenzas in a Bach-like vein.

SUNDAY 19 JUNE 2016

SUN 00:00 Geoffrey Smith's Jazz (b07gn3xp)
Jackie McLean

Famous for his fiery saxophone attack, Jackie McLean was a teenage protégé of Charlie Parker, sideman with Miles Davis and Charles Mingus and a trail-blazer in hard bop and free jazz. Geoffrey Smith surveys his passionate achievement.


SUN 01:00 Inspired by Birds (b07gn3xr)
Tom McKinney presents a midsummer night's music sequence inspired by birdsong, including Sam Lee, Villa-Lobos, Xenakis, Luther Adams, and David Rothenberg; and field recordings of the birds themselves.
Recordings of nightingales singing in the Sussex woods this Spring, in duet with improvising musicians including folk singer Sam Lee, were made exclusively for Radio 3.


SUN 04:20 Catalogue d'Oiseaux (b07gn3xt)
Dawn Chorus

As he starts his journey through Messiaen's "Catalogue d'Oiseaux", pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard will take up the baton from the dawn chorus as the sun rises over the Alde Estuary in Suffolk.

Tom McKinney presents the first of four live broadcasts from the Aldeburgh Festival today, in which Pierre-Laurent Aimard performs Messiaen's set of thirteen piano pieces based on bird calls that he composed in the late 1950s. These three movements: Le Traquet stapazin (black-eared wheatear), La Bouscarle (Cetti's warbler) and Le Traquet rieur (black wheatear) are not simply transciptions of birdsong - they are tone poems for the piano, evoking the landscape, its colours and atmosphere. And what better setting than the marshes behind the concert hall at Snape Maltings in Suffolk.

After the concert ends, at 5.15 am, Tom McKinney continues his exploration of music associated with birds, including recordings of Warlock's The Curlew, Rautavaara's Cantus Arcticus, Sibelius's The Swan of Tuonela and Jonathan Harvey's Bird Concerto with Pianosong.


SUN 07:00 Breakfast (b07gn5cd)

There's also keyboard music from Handel, Stravinsky's "Dumbarton Oaks" arranged for two pianos, and Panufnik's Sinfonia Sacra.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07gn5cj)
Andrew Solomon

Andrew Solomon is Professor of Clinical Psychology at Columbia Medical Centre in New York, and a writer with a wide-ranging interest in families. He spent ten years talking to parents who faced extraordinary challenges, because their children had turned out so very different from them: either through disabilities, or because they were musical prodigies - or because they had committed serious crimes. The resulting book, "Far From the Tree - Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity" has won many awards, and millions of people have watched Solomon's TED talks. Solomon first made an impact with another prize-winning book, about depression, "The Noonday Demon", a moving account of his own illness.

In Private Passions, Andrew Solomon talks to Michael Berkeley about how both books are grounded in his own experience; he had a hard time growing up, and being accepted by his parents - and his peers - as gay. He reveals that at one point he was so depressed that he couldn't get out of bed, and thought he'd had a stroke. It was his father's love and care which saved him. He talks too about how he met his husband, and became a father himself - albeit as part of a marvellously complex and unconventional family.

Music choices include Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro"; Strauss's "Der Rosenkavalier"; Bryn Terfel singing Vaughan Williams's "Songs of Travel"; Rachmaninov's 3rd Piano Concerto, and love songs by Reynaldo Hahn, Strauss and Britten.


SUN 13:00 Catalogue d'Oiseaux (b07gn5cl)
Afternoon

Continuing his journey through Messiaen's "Catalogue d'Oiseaux" today, pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard moves to the Britten Studio at Snape Maltings in Suffolk to perform another four movements of this piano masterpiece: La Buse variable (buzzard), L'Alouette calandrelle (short-toed lark), Le Loriot (golden oriole) and Le Merle bleu (blue rock thrush)

Presented by Tom McKinney.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b07gn5cp)
London Festival of Baroque Music - Bruce Dickey

Fiona Talkington presents a concert recorded at the 2016 London Festival of Baroque Music, featuring virtuoso cornett player Bruce Dickey, gamba player Alberto Rasi, harpist Maria Christina Cleary and organist Liuwe Tamminga in music by Gabrieli, Palestrina, Guami and Luzzaschi, among others. The early decades of the Baroque era were when virtuoso instruments such as the cornett first came into their own, yet much of their music was based on existing vocal models. Bruce Dickey, widely acknowledged as the world's greatest exponent of the instrument thought to have the closest resemblance to the human voice, demonstrates how the cool sounds of the Renaissance were transformed into a rich new species of instrumental eloquence, in works by Gabrieli, Palestrina, Luzzaschi, Bassano and others.

Her choral classic is from Verdi's Nabucco - the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves; and we hear from the Birmingham Icknield Male Voice Choir in Meet My Choir.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07gn6km)
Is Birdsong Music?

Birdsong has fascinated composers for centuries, but is it really music as we understand it? Tom Service asks how birdsong has inspired and equipped human music over the years. He listens to music inspired by birdsong, made up from elements of birdsong and performed alongside birdsong - why does it have such a deep effect on the human psyche and how have the sounds of the natural world informed the development of human music?

With contributions from sound recordist, musician and ecologist Bernie Krause, Messiaen scholar Delphine Evans and naturalist Stephen Moss. Also archive material from Ludwig Koch, the pioneering sound recordist who made the first documented recording of a bird as an 8-year-old in 1889.

Rethink Music, with The Listening Service.

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.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b063d81y)
Blithe Spirit - The Skylark

As Radio 3 is inspired by birds today, this edition of Words and Music hails Shelley's "blithe spirit" - the skylark. This rather nondescript little brown bird fills the skies with the most extraordinary torrent of sound, and has inspired poets and musicians throughout the centuries. Rising vertically from the ground he remains high in the air, fluttering and dropping his "silver chains of sound", before plummeting back down to earth - a "singing firework" as Edmund Blunden put it. How apt that the collective noun for larks is an "exultation".

Carolyn Pickles and Adrian Lukis are the readers - there is poetry from Shakespeare to Shelley, Herrick to Ted Hughes, with lark-inspired folk music, art song, chamber and orchestral music and of course some well-known Vaughan Williams...


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b07gn7fh)
An Explosion of Geraniums - The International Surrealist Exhibition of 1936

"There is an explosion of geraniums in the ballroom of the hotel" is a line from the first English surrealist poem ever published, written by David Gascoyne when he was 17. Gascoyne was one of the organisers of the International Surrealist Exhibition which, like an explosion of geraniums, shocked, puzzled and amused the staid ballroom that was the British art world in 1936. Strange events unfolded in the New Burlington Galleries, London. Salvador Dali delivered a lecture from a deep-sea diver's suit, the better to plumb the depths of his unconscious. This, Gascoyne recalled, almost rendered him unconscious. He nearly suffocated, and Gascoyne had to borrow a spanner to release him. Sheila Legge, the Surrealist Phantom of Sex Appeal, wandered around Trafalgar Square in a satin gown, her head completely shrouded by a helmet of red roses. She carried an artificial leg in one hand and a pork chop in the other. Dylan Thomas went through the dense crowd - 25,000 people attended - with teacups full of boiled string, enquiring whether people preferred it weak or strong.

In a programme that is itself a surrealist work, Ian McMillan tells the story of the exhibition, and the influence it has had on art and writing. There is recorded testimony from some of the artists, such as David Gascoyne, Roland Penrose and Eileen Agar. Ian speaks to Michel Remy, editor of 'On the Thirteenth Stroke of Midnight', an anthology of surrealist poetry, and John Goodby, Dylan Thomas expert. With composer Robert Worby he seeks surrealist music. Louisa Buck leads him around the surrealist sites of London, original catalogue in hand. Ian confronts a diving helmet, and lovingly creates that noble dish - boiled string - and samples it to see if he prefers it weak or strong.

Producer: Julian May.


SUN 19:30 Catalogue d'Oiseaux (b07gn7fk)
Dusk

Tom McKinney presents the third instalment of Messiaen's "Catalogue d'Oiseaux" today. The setting for this evening's concert is the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve - where pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard will give an outdoor performance on the BBC Springwatch stage, beyond which spreads a vast expanse of grassland, water, reeds and sky. Here, Aimard will play another three movements of Messiaen's birdsong-inspired collection of piano pieces, including Le Chocard des Alpes (Alpine chough), La Merle de roche (rock thrush) and Le Courlis cendré (curlew).

The stage production was directed by Ian Rickson.

Electra is bound by grief following the murder of her father Agamemnon, unwilling to forgive and consumed by a desire for revenge, her anger builds. On the return of her brother Orestes, Electra's fury explodes without mercy, leading to a bloody and terrifying conclusion.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Tom Conti

9am
My favourite... tenor arias. Throughout the week Rob shares some of his favourite tenor arias, with voices both familiar (Franco Corelli, Richard Tucker and the legendary Carlo Bergonzi) and unfamiliar (Bruno Prevedi and Flaviano Labo). The repertoire ranges from the touching simplicity of Pergolesi's 'Nina' to the searing melodrama of Leoncavallo's 'Vesti la giubba', via Verdi, Giordano and Ponchielli.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge and identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the Tony Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor, writer and director Tom Conti. Famous internationally for his roles in films such as Shirley Valentine, Reuben, Reuben and The Dark Knight Rises, Tom was recently voted the most popular actor in the West End in the last 25 years. Tom talks about his career-defining acting roles and shares a selection of his favourite classical music, including works by Donizetti, Handel and Verdi, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Rob places Music in Time. In conjunction with BBC 4's 19th-Century Music season, today the spotlight is on the Romantic era and arguably the world's most famous waltz - 'The Blue Danube', by Johann Strauss II. It was Strauss who guided this once sedate dance-form on its journey from ballroom to concert hall, and his musical celebration of the iconic European river marks the pinnacle of his achievement in this field.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is Daniil Shafran, the 'other' great Russian cellist, who Rob considers to have a more individual style than the better-known Rostropovich. Shafran is deliciously quick-witted in the Shostakovich Sonata, passionate in Brahms's 2nd, and profoundly responsive to the voices of Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov. His tone, full and sensual, was quite unlike anyone else's.

Shostakovich
Cello Sonata in D minor, Op. 40

Dmitri Shostakovich, piano.


MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b053zy7w)
Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre (1665-1729)

The King's Protege

As part of Radio 3's celebration of female composers marking International Women's Day, this week Donald Macleod explores with Mary Cyr, the life and music of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, hailed by scholars as one of the most successful women in the history of French music. Born in Paris, Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet went on to become famous as a composer and harpsichordist. Her talents were first noticed when, at the age of five, she performed and sung at the court of the Sun King, Louis XIV. He later instructed his mistress, Madame de Montespan, to take Elisabeth into her own entourage.

Jacquet de La Guerre clocked up a number of firsts during her remarkable career. She was the first woman we know of to compose pieces for harpsichord, the first woman known to have composed and published, sets of cantatas, and the first woman to have had an opera performed at the Academie Royale de Musique. She had a huge impact upon music in France, with one author rating her as second only to Lully in the ranks of Baroque French composers.

MON 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b07gnc3n)
Haydn - The Seasons

The Seasons was Haydn's last major work, a response to the phenomenal success of his previous choral hit, The Creation. The sixty-nine-year-old composer threw everything he had at it, combining choral forces and soloists with the biggest orchestra he had ever used. A bit like an early nineteenth-century Austrian The Archers, The Seasons is concerned with rural daily life including vivid musical depictions of jolly peasants going about their country activities from sowing seed and ploughing to hunting and drinking, with noises off from rustic fauna including cattle, swarming bees, quail, a cricket and a frog.

Paul McCreesh conducts this period instrument performance with a combined choir and orchestra of over 170 performers and a line-up of leading British soloists.

Recorded at St John's Smith Square and presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.

Sung in Paul McCreesh's new English translation.

A Reflection on Worrying

A Reflection on Worrying: Worry and Communication

We all have worries but rarely do we speak honestly about them. In this series of personal essays, five essayists share their intimate relationship with worry. As a novelist, Emma Jane Unsworth is no stranger to hearing the nagging voices of characters in her head. But there's another needling voice that keeps her awake at night and that is the voice of her social media fears. In her essay she delves into the perils of modern communication and its scope for fuelling persistent and repeated personal anxiety.


MON 23:00 Jazz Now (b07gnc53)
Black Cube SP

Soweto Kinch introduces a set by Chicagoan trumpeter Rob Mazurek's Black Cube SP. The band was formed (as its closing initials suggest) in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and brings together American and Latin American improvisers in what Mazurek describes as a hazy, gauzy collision of electronics, avant-garde jazz, tropicalia post-rock and noise, with a deep spiritual vibe. Soweto also looks at other aspects of Chicagoan and Brazilian music including and interview with Tropicalia pioneers Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso.

As part of Radio 3's celebration of female composers marking International Women's Day, this week Donald Macleod explores with Mary Cyr, the life and music of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, hailed by scholars as one of the most successful women in the history of French music.

1684 was the year that Elisabeth Jacquet left the royal court in Versailles, and returned to Paris. She married Marin de La Guerre who was an organist at the Jesuit church of Saint Louis. The following year, at the age of only twenty, she composed a sung ballet, now lost, to be performed at court. A few years later in 1687, aged only twenty-two, she published her first set of Suites for Harpsichord, including the Suite No 4 in F major, which she dedicated to King Louis XIV.

WED 09:00 Essential Classics (b07gncr1)
Wednesday - Rob Cowan with Tom Conti

9am
My favourite... tenor arias. Throughout the week Rob shares some of his favourite tenor arias, with voices both familiar (Franco Corelli, Richard Tucker and the legendary Carlo Bergonzi) and unfamiliar (Bruno Prevedi and Flaviano Labo). The repertoire ranges from the touching simplicity of Pergolesi's 'Nina' to the searing melodrama of Leoncavallo's 'Vesti la giubba', via Verdi, Giordano and Ponchielli.

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is the Tony Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor, writer and director Tom Conti. Famous internationally for his roles in films such as Shirley Valentine, Reuben, Reuben and The Dark Knight Rises, Tom was recently voted the most popular actor in the West End in the last 25 years. Tom talks about his career-defining acting roles and shares a selection of his favourite classical music, including works by Donizetti, Handel and Verdi, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Modern
Rob places Music in Time as he explores the Modern era and Zoltán Kodály's passionately nationalistic Psalmus Hungaricus, commissioned to mark the 50th anniversary of the union of the cities of Buda, Pest and Óbuda. In the event, it also marked the beginning of his international reputation as a composer.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is Daniil Shafran, the 'other' great Russian cellist, who Rob considers to have a more individual style than the better-known Rostropovich. Shafran is deliciously quick-witted in the Shostakovich Sonata, passionate in Brahms's 2nd, and profoundly responsive to the voices of Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov. His tone, full and sensual, was quite unlike anyone else's.

Cello Sonata No. 2 in F, Op. 99

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0540193)
Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre (1665-1729)

Opera in Paris

As part of Radio 3's celebration of female composers marking International Women's Day, this week Donald Macleod explores with Mary Cyr, the life and music of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, hailed by scholars as one of the most successful women in the history of French music.

Jacquet de La Guerre had been the first women composer in history to publish a set of Suites for the harpsichord. In 1694 she became the first women to have an opera premiered at the Academy Royale de Musique in Paris. This was a huge undertaking for any composer at the time, and is evidence of her high standing at the time. Unfortunately, Céphale et Procris only had five or six performances, and its reception by the public was lukewarm. In that same year, Jacquet de La Guerre met the composer and critic Sebastien de Brossard. She lent him some of her own music, which was fortunate as it was through his collection that much of her chamber music including the Trio Sonata No 1 in B flat major, has been preserved for us today.

Universities: Therapy or Learning?

Philip Dodd debates "Universities - therapy or learning?". New Generation Thinker Dr Seán Williams looks at the history of the university as a space for thought, considering the arguments put forward by Frederick Nietzsche. Dr Seán Williams is at the University of Sheffield's School of Languages and Cultures. He is an expert on German and Comparative Literature and is currently researching a cultural history of hairdressing.

Dr Matt Lodder, Lecturer in Contemporary Art and Visual Culture at the University of Essex and Dr Joanna Williams, education editor of Spiked Online and former Director of the Study for Higher Education at the University of Kent discuss what is happening in academia and what it means.

Dr Shahidha Bari reviews Omer Fast's film of Tom McCarthy's novel Remainder. And Adam Mars Jones joins her to discuss the place for experimentation in the arts today.

Frederick Nietzsche's 1872 series of lectures On the Future of Our Educational Institutions have been republished under the title Anti-Education.
Remainder is released on 24th June 2016.

The New Generation Thinkers prize is an initiative launched by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to find the brightest minds from across the UK who have the potential to transform their research into engaging broadcast programmes.

Tom talks about his career-defining acting roles and shares a selection of his favourite classical music, including works by Donizetti, Handel and Verdi, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Rob places Music in Time as he heads back to the Baroque era and a landmark in the repertoire of the violin - Heinrich Biber's extraordinary sequence of Rosary Sonatas, which require the player to continually retune the instrument in a practice known as 'scordatura'. The result is an expanded palette of tone-colours, which Biber uses to heighten his portrayal of scenes from the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is Daniil Shafran, the 'other' great Russian cellist, who Rob considers to have a more individual style than the better-known Rostropovich. Shafran is deliciously quick-witted in the Shostakovich Sonata, passionate in Brahms's 2nd, and profoundly responsive to the voices of Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov.

Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre (1665-1729)

The Elector of Bavaria

As part of Radio 3's celebration of female composers marking International Women's Day, this week Donald Macleod explores with Mary Cyr, the life and music of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, hailed by scholars as one of the most successful women in the history of French music.

Jacquet de La Guerre had apartments on the Ile Saint Louis, where she would hold regular musical gatherings for discerning patrons. These concerts would also be a testing ground for her own chamber music, such as her Trio Sonata No 4 in G minor. In 1707 she published a set of violin sonatas, which she dedicated to the Sun King, Louis XIV. It was around this period that another patron came into her life; The Elector of Bavaria, Maximilian II, had taken asylum just outside Paris. Jacquet de La Guerre socialised with Maximilian, sometimes performing music together. She dedicated her third book of cantatas to him, which includes Le Sommeil d'Ulisse. This cantata might have been designed to reflect Maximilian's own situation, and includes themes of misfortune and wandering.

Penny Gore presents Vivaldi's opera Catone in Utica from a recent performance in Amsterdam by La Cetra Baroque, Basel, conducted by Andrea Marcon. When Vivaldi's opera was first heard in Verona in 1737 it was a huge success. The loosely historical plot from the librettist Metastasio concerns the last confrontation between Cato, a defender of Roman liberty, and Caesar, who has just become supreme ruler. The emotional crux of the opera comes between Cato and his daughter, Marcia.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b07gncr6)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Tom Conti

9am
My favourite... tenor arias. Throughout the week Rob shares some of his favourite tenor arias, with voices both familiar (Franco Corelli, Richard Tucker and the legendary Carlo Bergonzi) and unfamiliar (Bruno Prevedi and Flaviano Labo). The repertoire ranges from the touching simplicity of Pergolesi's 'Nina' to the searing melodrama of Leoncavallo's 'Vesti la giubba', via Verdi, Giordano and Ponchielli.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: Two pieces of music have been altered. Can you identify them?

10am
Rob's guest this week is the Tony Award-winning and Oscar-nominated actor, writer and director Tom Conti. Famous internationally for his roles in films such as Shirley Valentine, Reuben, Reuben and The Dark Knight Rises, Tom was recently voted the most popular actor in the West End in the last 25 years. Tom talks about his career-defining acting roles and shares a selection of his favourite classical music, including works by Donizetti, Handel and Verdi, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Classical era and the Agnus Dei from Beethoven's mighty Missa Solemnis. Originally intended for performance at the installation of Beethoven's friend and pupil Rudolph Johannes Joseph Rainier von Habsburg-Lothringen as Archbishop of Olmütz, the work grew to unpredicted dimensions and Beethoven overshot his self-imposed deadline by three years and ten days, though, by then, no-one was counting.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is Daniil Shafran, the 'other' great Russian cellist, who Rob considers to have a more individual style than the better-known Rostropovich. Shafran is deliciously quick-witted in the Shostakovich Sonata, passionate in Brahms's 2nd, and profoundly responsive to the voices of Beethoven, Chopin and Rachmaninov. His tone, full and sensual, was quite unlike anyone else's.

Rachmaninov
Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 19
Daniil Shafran, cello
Anton Ginsburg, piano.


FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0540197)
Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de la Guerre (1665-1729)

Death of the Sun King

As part of Radio 3's celebration of female composers marking International Women's Day, this week Donald Macleod explores with Mary Cyr, the life and music of Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, hailed by scholars as one of the most successful women in the history of French music.

Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre lost her most significant Patron, when King Louis XIV of France died in 1715. However, her music was also in demand outside of the royal court, including songs, music for seasonal Fairs and works for the theatre. Her final published work was her Cantates françoises and, after that, her career took more of a back seat. Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre died a wealthy woman in 1729.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b07gnj1g)
Bad Language

This week the Cabaret of the Word becomes The F Verb as we examine rude and transgressive language.

Ian's guests include the academic Rebecca Roache, who is writing a book about the mechanics of swearing. Why do certain words become 'bad'? Does sound have anything to do with it? And what is considered rude across the globe?

Peter Mackay teaches at the University of St Andrews, where he is working on an anthology of transgressive Scottish Gaelic poetry.

We also have a special commission from the performance poet and stand up comedian Kate Fox.

Producer: Cecile Wright.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b07gnj8g)
A Reflection on Worrying

A Reflection on Worrying: The Comedy of Worry

We all have worries but rarely do we speak honestly about them. In this series of personal essays, five essayists share their intimate relationship with worry. Comedian Steve Punt muses on how worry has always been a bedfellow of comedy, how our worries can be a source of shared observational humour and how a lack of perspective between the trivial and serious can lead to hilarious consequences.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b07gnjk9)
Kathryn Tickell with the Orchestra of Syrian Musicians in Session

Kathryn Tickell with new music from across the globe, plus a live studio session with members of The Orchestra of Syrian Musicians.

Syrian oud player Issam Rafea brings members of his Orchestra of Syrian Musicians (formerly the Syrian National Orchestra for Arabic Music) to perform the classic traditional repertory of Syria. They are currently touring the UK along with Damon Albarn, who first worked with them in Damascus in 2008, then toured and recorded with them. Many of the musicians were forced to leave Syria because of the ongoing conflict, but are now reuniting for a celebration of Syrian music and culture.
