SAT 18:30 Sunday Feature (b05w7r5k)
Contemporary Art and the Church

Inspired by the Vatican's new initiative to have its own pavilion at the world's greatest contemporary art show, the Venice Biennale, Fiona Shaw travelled to Rome to meet Gianfranco Ravasi, the Cardinal pushing to reignite the Holy See's relationship with new art.

With recordings from the 56th Venice Biennale 2015 (when this programme was first broadcast).

Since the big bust up with contemporary art at the beginning of the 20th century; the so-called "evil" force of Modernism that Pope Pius X believed "led to the annihilation of all religion", the Christian church has been a cautious commissioner of contemporary art. But a voice from within, that of Ravasi, President of the Pontifical Council for Culture, is set to end the stand-off.

Fiona hears Ravasi's passion to reinstate "the marriage between art and faith".

Ravasi has said, "There is an insoluble problem in the coexistence of art and religion and faith, but there's no need for the Catholic Church to retreat and lose contact with the contemporary art world by remaining stuck in the "reliable" neo-Gothic, neo-Romantic, neo-Classical styles that are perfectly coherent with religion...It's time to grow our relationship with the creative artists and creative energy of the artist... "

The Anglican church of St-Martin-in-the-Fields has been reaching out to contemporary artists for a decade while Canon Mark Oakley at St Paul's Cathedral in London is equally committed, recently commissioning American video artist Bill Viola to create Messenger for the cathedral.

Artists Cornelia Parker and Dorothy Cross discuss the inspiration of Christian stories and iconography in their own work and reflect on the contradiction of contemporary art and the Church, given that art sets out to ask questions, while the Church exists to console, to answer questions.

First broadcast in May 2015.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b07tyzn5)
James Jolly

On the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 World Trade Centre disaster in New York, James Jolly plays John Adams' 'On the Transmigration of Souls', written to commemorate those who lost their lives in the event. He also plays music associated with farewell and mourning by Beethoven, Howells, Martinu, Merula and Purcell. The week's young artist is singer Aksel Rykkvin, and there is also a famous recording of Enescu's Third Violin Sonata by Yehudi and Hephzibah Menuhin.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07tyznh)
Daniel Libeskind

On this, the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Michael Berkeley's guest is Daniel Libeskind, a world-renowned architect, known for concert halls, opera sets, museums, hotels and universities.

In 2003 Libeskind won an international competition to produce an overarching vision for buildings which would stand on the site of the Twin Towers. That vision is now almost complete, and includes a memorial to those who were killed in the attacks. He's called his plan "a site of memory, a healing of New York". Daniel Libeskind had already made his reputation with buildings that symbolised and preserved tragic histories, such as the Jewish Museum in Berlin, and the German Military Museum in Dresden.

In Private Passions, he talks to Michael Berkeley about the day he first visited the site and climbed down into the crater left in the earth. He says that experience changed his life - he began to hear the voices of the dead. He talks about how he decided this should be a "sacred site", and that the footprint of the twin towers should never be built on. He reveals his concept of a light memorial to the dead, created by using shafts of light filtered through the spaces between skyscrapers. The sun strikes the ground at exactly the same times as the planes hit the towers.

Daniel Libeskind is extraordinarily musical; in fact, a gifted accordionist, he was something of a musical prodigy. He decided to follow architecture instead, but is still inspired by music. His music choices include Renée Fleming singing "Amazing Grace", Perotin; the contemporary Finnish composer Saariaho, and Mark Padmore singing Bach's Cantata for the 16th Sunday after Trinity - so the right cantata for 11 September 2016.

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

SUN 13:00 BBC Proms (b07sxdfp)
2016, Proms Chamber Music, PCM 8: Songs by Purcell, Mendelssohn and Quilter

BBC Proms: soprano Carolyn Sampson and countertenor Iestyn Davies perform songs by Purcell (arr. Britten), Mendelssohn and Quilter, including settings of Shakespeare.

From Cadogan Hall, London.
Presented by Petroc Trelawny.

Purcell (arr. Britten): Sound the trumpet; Lost is my quiet; Music for a while; If music be the food of love; No, resistance is but vain; Celemene, pray tell me
Mendelssohn: Ich wollt' meine Lieb' ergösse sich; Scheidend; Neue Liebe; Sonntagsmorgen; Das Ährenfeld; Lied aus 'Ruy Blas'
Quilter: It was a lover and his lass; Music, when soft voices die; Drink to me only with thine eyes; Love's philosophy; Love calls through the summer night

Carolyn Sampson (soprano)
Iestyn Davies (countertenor)
Joseph Middleton (piano)

Two cherished British singers round off 2016's Proms Chamber Music series with a joint recital at Cadogan Hall, celebrating English song with an extended stopover in Germany for songs and duets by Felix Mendelssohn.

Either side, Carolyn Sampson, Iestyn Davies and Joseph Middleton present Benjamin Britten's touching 'realisations' of songs by the composer's theatrical predecessor Henry Purcell, and works by the doyen of English song, Roger Quilter.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b07tyznt)
Tafelmusik

Hannah French looks at the tradition of Tafelmusik. Musique de Table. Table Music. It's music composed to divert, entertain, and yes, be performed around a table.

Hannah visits the British Library to talk to the Curator of Music Manuscripts Andra Patterson about an incredible manuscript of Table Music held there: a 'booke of In nomines and other solfainge songs of 5, 6, 7 and 8 parts for voyces or Instruments'.

The programme includes pieces by William Byrd, Johann Schein, Michael Praetorius, Vivaldi and Telemann. Telemann is undoubtedly the most celebrated composer of Tafelmusik. His 1733 collection is a substantial portfolio of about four-and-a-half hours of music which is rated alongside Vivaldi's L'Estro Armonico and Bach's Brandenburg Concertos in terms of breadth of ideas and creative use of form. It's arranged into three parts or 'productions', each containing a suite, a quartet, a concerto, a trio, a sonata, and a conclusion. Telemann had the knack of keeping up with the latest musical trends and giving people what they wanted to hear. He knew he was on the money with his Tafelmusik, announcing: 'This work will make me famous one day'...

SUN 15:00 Choral Evensong (b07sxtbk)

SUN 16:00 The Choir (b07tz12w)
The Choir at Proms Extra

Sara Mohr-Pietch introduces a special edition of The Choir, recorded in front of a live audience at Imperial College Union. 2016 marks the centenary of a song that has become closely associated with the Proms - Hubert Parry's "Jerusalem". An instant success from the occasion when it was first heard in 1916, Sara and guests will be talking about what lies behind the broad and enduring appeal of this unofficial anthem. Led by its innovative director Hilary Campbell, critically acclaimed choir Blossom Street puts Parry into context with a round-up of songs by British composers including Elgar and a George Herbert setting from Master of the Queen's Music, Judith Weir; and we celebrate the power of voices singing together in Lennon and McCartney's "Hey Jude" as well as "Jerusalem" itself. Between the songs, Sara will be catching up with some of the members of this vibrant professional choir in Meet My Choir and this week's Choral Classic is drawn from Parry's late masterpiece, his moving "Songs of Farewell".

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07tz12y)
Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 2

The Listening Service returns after the summer break. Tom Service examines one of the most famous concertos in the piano repertoire. What is the secret of its appeal? Why does it have such emotional impact? Why did the critics hate it, yet why is it such a classical favourite in the world of popular culture - from Mickey Mouse to Marilyn Monroe to Muse? And what did Rachmaninov have to go through to compose it? With pianist Lucy Parham.

The whole concerto can be heard on Radio 3 tonight at 2330.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b00wbkmp)
Zaha

Presented by Jonathan Glancey, this profile of the late Dame Zaha Hadid opens in Antwerp - at the futuristic Port House, the first of Zaha Hadid Architects' buildings to complete since her death six months ago. It is a wildly ambitious structure in which a well mannered rectangular brick office building has been topped with a vast cantilevered glass boat-shaped extension. It is the very epitome of the ZHA flair and ambition in architecture.

We also visit the new Maths Gallery at the Science Museum in London which opens in December this year - designed by ZHA - and organised around a suspended 1929 bi-plane. The mathematically calculated airflow from the plane serves to shape the spaces so that maths becomes not just an exhibit but part of the very fabric of the gallery.

It took a long time for Zaha to be acknowledged and build in her adopted homeland. But the Pritzker prizewinner added the British RIBA Stirling Prize and the coveted Royal Gold Medal to her honours and her buildings stirred huge demand across the world.

In the programme we hear from the opening of MAXXI, the Museum of 21st Century Art in Rome, the first unequivocally modern public building in the city for many years. We report from Wolfsburg in Germany where Zaha's new Phaeno science centre astonished architectural critics, and from Glasgow where the new Transport Museum is a vital part of a regenerative programme for the Clyde, and we take a trip to the acclaimed new Evelyn Grace Academy in South London.

We hear Zaha herself in the programme from an in-depth interview she gave us before the London 2012 Olympics. Other contributors include Deyan Sudjic, Director of the Design museum, Joris Pauwels and Jim Heverin, two of Zaha's inside team of trusted colleagues and Simon Jenkins who is deeply sceptical about the 'fantasy buildings' made by architects who imitate Zaha's style.

Revised repeat of a programme first broadcast in December 2010.

Hough Plays Rachmaninov and Bowen

Three virtuoso pianist composers in one programme. Stephen Hough - himself an accomplished composer - in a complete performance of the work discussed earlier this evening by Tom Service and Lucy Parham in "The Listening Service", Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto. This is paired with the dramatic and virtuosic 5th Sonata by his younger contemporary, York Bowen. Bowen has often unfairly been dubbed "the English Rachmaninov", but in this sonata, at least, the comparison does neither composer an injustice.

My favourite... Fugues
This week, Rob explores that ultimate test of a composer's mettle, the fugue - a musical form in which successive entries of the same melody weave together to create a complex contrapuntal fabric.

Music in Time: Renaissance
Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Renaissance era and the extraordinary experiments in harmony that took place towards the end of the 16th century at the court of Naples, including music written for harpsichords with 14, 19 and 31 notes to the octave - rather than the usual 12!

Artist of the Week: Clara Haskil
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Romanian pianist Clara Haskil, one of the finest musicians of her generation, who endured a life of great suffering but was adored by a discerning public. Her precious discography has stood the test of time and includes many celebrated recordings - not least, Mozart concertos, heartfelt Schumann, sultry Falla, poetic Chopin, and Beethoven violin sonatas with Arthur Grumiaux, with whom she gave her last concert.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07tz3qk)
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), From Five to One

If Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov is remembered for anything it's his endlessly reworked showstopper 'The Flight of the Bumble Bee' trotted out by every instrumental virtuoso under the sun just to show how nimble his or her finger-work might be. And if there's any exploration beyond that it tends to focus on his early years as a member of 'The Five', a mighty coalition of Russian composers intent on forging a new path for their national culture.

But thanks to a memorable personal encounter Rimsky-Korsakov's later story is quite different. In his 40s he met his 'Boswell', a biographer who came to admire his subject every bit as much as Dr Johnson's personal chronicler.

This week Donald Macleod explores Rimsky-Korsakov's final years through the lens of that man: Vasily Vasilyevitch Yastrebtsev. The two men mirror each other. Yastrebtsev is a natural musician, halted in his ambition by laziness; Rimsky-Korsakov launches his career as an amateur, but lifting himself to the highest musical peaks through sheer dedication.

But during the week we also discover a man plagued by doubt and prone to revision. Despite that, his mastery of the orchestra and determination to find new ways of communicating drama through music are destined to leave an indelible mark on Russian musical history.

The Meaning of Flowers, Sunflower

A new series of essays written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford. Following her three popular essay series The Meaning of Trees for BBC Radio 3, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five of the UK's most common flowers. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with flowers is explored.

The sunflower is a shaggy giant of a plant that we harvest in industrial quantities worldwide. Humanity has used sunflowers in food, craft, art and literature for centuries. The sunflower was first domesticated around 1000 BC, but far from being a workhorse, the sunflower was once the flower of kings, prized by many royal houses as the emblem of their superiority. Sunflowers were also a significant symbol in the Holocaust.

Sunflowers are in fact not single flowers. Each sunflower head is built of up to 2000 flowers of two types - the black seed flowers which have no petals and the yellow ray flowers that do not form seeds. Sunflowers are distributed worldwide in 67 species, with sunflower seeds being eaten raw, cooked, roasted, or dried and ground for use in bread and cakes. Yellow dyes have been made from the petal "ray" flowers. The sunflower is destined to continue its economic importance as it is developed as a key crop for developing countries as a source of food, business and bio-fuel. Sunflowers have so many more hidden depths still to uncover.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Antony Beevor

9am
My favourite... Fugues
This week, Rob explores that ultimate test of a composer's mettle, the fugue - a musical form in which successive entries of the same melody weave together to create a complex contrapuntal fabric. Rob's favourites include fugues by Bach, Mozart, Walton and Shostakovich - plus a rarely-heard vocal one by the pianist Glenn Gould, aptly titled: "So you want to write a fugue?"

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Rob's guest this week, sharing his favourite classical music every day, is the acclaimed military historian Antony Beevor. Famous for the best-selling histories of World War Two, Stalingrad and Berlin - The Downfall 1945, his works also include Crete: The Battle and the Resistance and The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-39. Antony studied at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and went on to serve with the 11th Hussars before becoming a writer, and this week he shares with Rob music including works by Vaughan Williams, Dvorak, Bach and Vivaldi.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Today the spotlight is on the transitional period when the Baroque gradually gave way to the Classical era. Rob focuses on a celebrated cultural spat in mid-18th-century Paris, the so-called Querelle des Bouffons - an acrimonious row over the relative merits of French and Italian opera provoked by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi's comic 'intermezzo' La serva padrona.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), A Mania for Revision

Donald Macleod continues the story of Rimsky-Korsakov's final decades, with the help of a contemporary biography written by one of the composer's most ardent fans and collaborators. Crippling doubts plague the composer as he sets about revising countless of his works. Therapy comes in the form of ambitious plan to write musical theory, and also in the sounds of Wagner whose radical operas inspire Rimsky-Korsakov to find new ways of presenting his own national stories on the stage.

A new series of essays written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford. Following her three popular essay series The Meaning of Trees for BBC Radio 3, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five of the UK's most common flowers. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with some of our best known and loved flowers is explored.

Lilies have contradictorily represented death and purity, peace and weaponry, salvation and crucifixion. Nowadays there are thousands of varieties of lilies, and global dominance in this internationally lucrative industry has over the centuries moved from Japan to the USA. Many flowers we call lilies are not in fact lilies at all, including waterlilies and also lily of the valley, which is more closely related to asparagus. Our most popular lilies in the UK are a fatal danger to cats from their pollen.

Wednesday - Rob Cowan with Antony Beevor

9am
My favourite... Fugues
This week, Rob explores that ultimate test of a composer's mettle, the fugue - a musical form in which successive entries of the same melody weave together to create a complex contrapuntal fabric. Rob's favourites include fugues by Bach, Mozart, Walton and Shostakovich - plus a rarely-heard vocal one by the pianist Glenn Gould, aptly titled: "So you want to write a fugue?"

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

10am
Rob's guest this week, sharing his favourite classical music every day, is the acclaimed military historian Antony Beevor. Famous for the best-selling histories of World War Two, Stalingrad and Berlin - The Downfall 1945, his works also include Crete: The Battle and the Resistance and The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-39. Antony studied at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and went on to serve with the 11th Hussars before becoming a writer, and this week he shares with Rob music including works by Vaughan Williams, Dvorak, Bach and Vivaldi.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Romantic era and Chausson's ever-popular Poème for violin and orchestra, a passionate monologue that transforms the violin into an instrumental equivalent of the human voice. The piece harks back to the world of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde, and provides a window on the Wagner-mania that swept the French musical world in the late 19th century.

11am
Artist of the Week: Clara Haskil
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Romanian pianist Clara Haskil, one of the finest musicians of her generation, who endured a life of great suffering but was adored by a discerning public. Her precious discography has stood the test of time and includes many celebrated recordings - not least, Mozart concertos, heartfelt Schumann, sultry Falla, poetic Chopin, and Beethoven violin sonatas with Arthur Grumiaux, with whom she gave her last concert.

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), Reinventing a Past

How much can you tell about the way someone walks? Today we find Rimsky-Korsakov adorning a jubilee concert with his music and adopting an unusually solemn gait, a suggestion perhaps that even in these final decades his was typically more fleet of foot?

His music is finding a new pace too, inspired by the wonderfully evocative 'bylinas' from Russian folklore. As Donald Macleod discovers, these were to prove vital ingredients for the composer's operas.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b07tzxdp)
The Meaning of Flowers, Rose

A new series of essays written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford. Following her three popular essay series The Meaning of Trees for BBC Radio 3, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five of the UK's most common flowers. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with some of our best known and loved flowers is explored.

Roses have been important to humankind since the beginning of human consciousness and are arguably the world's favourite flower. Their reputation for being the love flower has a chemical basis as roses contain a compound that slows down the decay of beta-endorphins, chemicals produced by people in love. We like to think of roses as quintessentially English, but actually the French lead the way in modern rose cultivation in the 19th century and the British, determined not to be outdone then started taking rose breeding very seriously indeed. From wild roses taken as the emblem of Elizabeth I, to the England rugby team's logo, to the white rose of the Jacobite cause, roses are woven into British history. Rose oil, which takes two thousand kilos of petals to produce one kilo of oil, is so valuable it saved Bulgaria after the first world war, paying for essential supplies from the USA when the government commandeered the entire national rose crop.

Rob's guest this week, sharing his favourite classical music every day, is the acclaimed military historian Antony Beevor. Famous for the best-selling histories of World War Two, Stalingrad and Berlin - The Downfall 1945, his works also include Crete: The Battle and the Resistance and The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-39.

Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Classical era and Beethoven's Piano Sonata in A, Op 101, one of a handful of experimental works produced during the 1810s, a period of relative creative hiatus for the composer. Rob describes the sonata as "the Golden Gate that leads to the great 'late' piano sonatas and shares many of their qualities".

The Meaning of Flowers, Magnolia

A new series of essays written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford. Following her three popular essay series The Meaning of Trees for BBC Radio 3, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five of the UK's most common flowers. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with some of our best known and loved flowers is explored.

Magnolias are amongst the oldest plants in the world. They evolved before bees or butterflies, hence they are pollinated by beetles and close at night to hold them inside to ensure pollination. A two-thousand-year-old seed was found in Japan and when planted it grew into an ancient magnolia. Other surprises include that they are used for food: the Chinese eat pickled magnolia, the whole flower buds boiled as a vegetable and the leaves as an aromatic flavouring. Medicinal properties of magnolias include having active ingredients that are antiseptic, and that inhibit cholesterol and melanoma. There are almost 1500 magnolia hybrids that come in many more colours from purple to yellow to white, pink or even brown - much more exciting and varied than the decorator's boring magnolia beige. Britain's National Magnolia collection is in Caerhays in Cornwall.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b07tzj29)
Friday - Rob Cowan with Antony Beevor

9am
My favourite... Fugues
This week, Rob explores that ultimate test of a composer's mettle, the fugue - a musical form in which successive entries of the same melody weave together to create a complex contrapuntal fabric. Rob's favourites include fugues by Bach, Mozart, Walton and Shostakovich - plus a rarely-heard vocal one by the pianist Glenn Gould, aptly titled: "So you want to write a fugue?"

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: listen to the clues and identify a mystery musical location.

10am
Rob's guest this week, sharing his favourite classical music every day, is the acclaimed military historian Antony Beevor. Famous for the best-selling histories of World War Two, Stalingrad and Berlin - The Downfall 1945, his works also include Crete: The Battle and the Resistance and The Battle for Spain: The Spanish Civil War 1936-39. Antony studied at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, and went on to serve with the 11th Hussars before becoming a writer, and this week he shares with Rob music including works by Vaughan Williams, Dvorak, Bach and Vivaldi.

10.30am
Music in Time: Modern
Rob places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Modern era and a work that swam against the prevailing tide of music history - Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances, Op 45. Written in 1940, towards the end of the composer's life, Rachmaninov's magnificent orchestral swan song combines the regal splendour of Old Russia with the optimism and glamour of the New World.

11am
Artist of the Week: Clara Haskil
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Romanian pianist Clara Haskil, one of the finest musicians of her generation, who endured a life of great suffering but was adored by a discerning public. Her precious discography has stood the test of time and includes many celebrated recordings - not least, Mozart concertos, heartfelt Schumann, sultry Falla, poetic Chopin, and Beethoven violin sonatas with Arthur Grumiaux, with whom she gave her last concert.

Chopin
Piano Concerto No 2 in F minor, Op 21
Clara Haskil (piano)
Orchestre des Concerts Lamoureux
Igor Markevitch (conductor).

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07tztb4)
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), A Short Ride to Vesuvius

Polish nursery tunes remembered from the cradle and a ditty about a funicular ride up Mount Vesuvius provide two unlikely sources of inspiration for the Russian composer in his final years. Plus we hear Rachmaninov's interpretation of Rimsky-Korsakov's most famous work refracted through the lens of the so-called 'reproducing piano', designed to preserve performances by the greats at the dawn of the recording age.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b07tzw87)
Northern Ireland Opera Festival of Voice, Episode 4

John Toal presents the final recital in our Lunchtime Concert series from the Northern Ireland Opera Festival of Voice, recorded at St. Patrick's Church of Ireland in Glenarm, Co. Antrim. Opening the programme is American composer Dominick Argento's 'Six Elizabethan Songs' - written while the composer was in Florence in 1957, almost as a homage to the composer John Dowland - performed by Irish soprano Aoife Miskelly and pianist Will Vann. Completing our series this week, mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz with pianist Simon Lepper return with a performance of Berlioz's beautiful 'Nuits d'été' (Summer Nights). The piece is a setting of six poems from the French poet Théophile Gautier. Originally written for voice and piano, Berlioz later orchestrated the movements, and made other arrangements of it for other voices. As with much of Berlioz's music, the themes of love and loss are prevalent throughout.

Dominick Argento: Six Elizabethan Songs
Aoife Miskelly (soprano), Will Vann (piano)

Edinburgh International Festival 2016, Gurrelieder

Recorded at the Usher Hall, Edinburgh
Presented by Jamie MacDougall

Donald Runnicles conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in Schoenberg's Gurrelieder from the Edinburgh Festival

Schoenberg: Gurrelieder

Schoenberg's epic cantata sets a legendary love-tale to music which begins in the lush pastures of 19th century Wagnerianism, and ends with a foreshadowing of the modernist musical landscape to come. This performance is the closing concert of the 2016 Edinburgh International Festival and also marks the final performance of Donald Runnicles as chief conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b07tzz48)
The Verb at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival

The Verb is back, kicking off a new season with a programme recorded at this year's Edinburgh Festivals.

Joining Ian for the festivities are the Booker-prize winning author James Kelman on his new novel 'Dirt Road' (Canongate), a book infused with the music and rhythms of the American South, and the poet Lemn Sissay who has just published his new and selected poems 'Gold From The Stone (Canongate).

There is also music from cabaret star and song interpreter Camille O'Sullivan, with an extract from her new show 'The Carny Dream' as well as stand up that examines the stories we tell ourselves from Grainne Maguire and parody from the master of the form, Jake Yapp, whose new show 'One in a Million' wonders if we are really as unique as we think we are?

Presenter: Ian McMillan
Producer: Jessica Treen.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b07tzxdy)
The Meaning of Flowers, Daisy

A new series of essays written and presented by experienced essayist, Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College, Oxford. Following her three popular essay series The Meaning of Trees for BBC Radio 3, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five of the UK's most common flowers. Across the series of essays, our ambiguous relationship with some of our best known and loved flowers is explored.

Daisies grow almost everywhere on Earth. They are pest-resistant and virtually indestructible, as anyone trying to eradicate them from a lawn knows. But this common little flower has many culinary and medicinal uses. The common daisy is nutritious and is increasingly used in salads, soups and many trendy restaurants. The leaves have for centuries been used in treating wounds, hence its other name, bruise wort. It contains many medicinal compounds, and was regarded as a wonder plant by herbalists in years gone by. Modern discoveries confirm its myriad uses, including a glycosidase inhibitor in the leaves which might have some antiviral agency against HIV. This common, magical flower now comes in many showy varieties, including the South African daisy, the gerbera, which in flower arrangements should have only an inch of water in the vase. If totally submerged, the stems absorb water which causes them to soften and droop.

A Bona Broadcasting production for BBC Radio 3.
