Sara Mohr-Pietsch discusses Benjamin Britten, the man, with academics Gerald McBurney and Marina Frolova-Walker as two new books on the composer are released, one on his relationship with Soviet Russia and some of its leading musical figures, like Dmitri Shostakovich, Sviatoslav Richter and Mstislav Rostropovich, while the other is a compilation of the correspondence between Britten and his partner, the tenor Peter Pears. Also, a trip to the Ruhrtriennale in north-west Germany, a festival exploring the concept of 'Identity' in today's Europe. We'll speak to its Artistic Director, Johan Simons, and report on some of the work being shown there, including the world premiere of 'Die Fremden', The Strangers, a piece of musical theatre using compositions by Ligeti and Kagel, which raises questions about migration, integration and cultural identity.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b07vwdnh)
Rossini's The Barber of Seville

Live from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

Presented by Christopher Cook and Flora Willson

Henrik Nánási conducts a cast including Javier Camarena, Daniela Mack and Vito Priante in this revival of The Royal Opera's sparkling production of Rossini's The Barber of Seville.

Figaro .....Vito Priante (Bass)
Count Almaviva ..... Javier Camarena (Tenor)
Rosina ..... Daniela Mack (Mezzo-soprano)
Doctor Bartolo ..... Jose Fardilha (Bass)
Don Basilio ..... Ferruccio Furlanetto (Bass)
Berta ..... Madeleine Pierard (Soprano)
Fiorello ..... Gyula Nagy (Baritone)
Royal Opera House Orchestra
Royal Opera House Chorus
Henrik Nanasi (Conductor)

A group of musicians, including the wealthy (and disguised) Count Almaviva, has gathered outside Dr Bartolo's house to serenade a beautiful young maiden kept hidden away inside. She's Rosina, Dr Bartolo's ward, and the deluded old gentleman hopes to marry her himself. Figaro suggests that Almaviva disguise himself as a poor drunken soldier, with orders to be billeted with Dr Bartolo, in order to gain access to the girl. Thus the scene is set for one of the most delightful works in the operatic repertory.

SAT 22:15 Hear and Now (b07vwdnk)

James Jolly

This week's Building a Library subject is Vivaldi's Four Seasons, so as well as playing the version selected in yesterday's Record Review, James Jolly also looks at how composers as varied as Haydn, Glazunov and Tchaikovsky have depicted the passing of the year in music. The week's young artist is cellist Edgar Moreau in music by Poulenc and Piatti, and the current American season continues with Symphony No. 1 by Lukas Foss.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07vwg51)
George Shaw

A former Turner Prize-nominee, George Shaw is renowned for his highly detailed approach and suburban subject matter, and for his idiosyncratic medium - Humbrol enamel paint, typically used to colour model trains and aeroplanes.

Armed with a sketchbook, the teenage Shaw made regular day trips from his home in a caravan on a Coventry council estate to the National Gallery in order to draw from works by artists he found inspiring.

He's now back at the National Gallery with a major exhibition, My Back to Nature, the culmination of a two-year residency. He has developed into one of Britain's most inspiring contemporary painters, a close observer of nature, with the sharp eye of a Freud or Hockney.

He talks to Michael about the music that inspires his life and work and chooses works by Schubert, Elgar, Purcell and Brian Eno.

It's the turn of amateur group "Got 2 Sing" to introduce themselves in our regular feature "Meet My Choir" and Sara's choral classic is Haydn's "Insanae et vanae curae", a sacred motet with a fascinating history.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07vwg5w)
Why is music addicted to bass?

Can you imagine a piece of music without its bass line? Or going out dancing with no bass to move to?

Whether it's an epic symphony or a club classic - we love listening to the bass.

But what actually is 'bass'? How is it that we can often feel it as much as hear it? And why is it that every genre of music seems to need it.

Tom Service goes on a whistlestop tour of bass through the musical ages: from Bach to Boulez, via reggae to rock n roll, Stevie Wonder to Dizzee Rascal. He discovers what links whales and horror movies in the world of bass. And he enlists the help of neuroscientist Dr Laurel Trainor to find out how we're hardwired into the bass as humans and whether it might even be true that the bigger the bass, the more we like each other.

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b07vwg60)
The Sun

Anne-Marie Duff and Greg Wise read poetry and prose on the theme of the sun. As a giver of life, a force of nature and an inspiration for worship, poetry and music, the sun has special significance in many cultures. We'll hear Shelley and Stravinsky's depiction of Apollo and Egyptian King Akhnaten's Hymn to the Sun set to music by Philip Glass. Romeo describes his beloved Juliet as the sun, and Louis XIV chose it as his emblem, declaring himself the Sun King. The sun also has its dangers, as discovered by Icarus and Ted Hughes' Crow. Real life aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupery crash-lands in the unforgiving heat of the Sahara Desert, and Mark Twain describes the terror of a solar eclipse. The effects of global warming are debated by Ian McEwan's characters in his novel Solar, while an unusually hot summer exacerbates the problems for schoolboy Leo in L.P. Hartley's The Go-Between. Includes music by Haydn, Lili Boulanger, Ravel and Schoenberg.

Vladimir Ashkenazy on Ansel Adams: The Print and the Performance

The acclaimed conductor and musician Vladimir Ashkenazy travels to the California home of acclaimed photographer Ansel Adams to reveal how classical music inspired and informed his friend's art.

Meeting the photographer's friends, family and former colleagues, Ashkenazy hears how Adams effectively "composed" his images, drawing on his musical background when developing his prints.

One of the most highly regarded photographers of the 20th Century, Adams's iconic black-and-white images of the American West still fetch $60 000 at auction. But his first love was piano, not the camera.

A wayward child, Adams struggled to concentrate and was expelled from several schools but became captivated by his mother's piano, teaching himself to sight-read music at the age of twelve. Classical music became Adams's passion and, until his late twenties, he was an aspiring concert pianist deeply committed to the study of great composers including Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and Scriabin.

Adams often likened his negatives to a composer's score and his final print as the resulting musical performance. We gain an insight into Adams's creative processes and the extent to which his photography was driven by music. Instead of using a clock in his darkroom, he employed a metronome to precisely time his processing.

Previously unbroadcast recordings of Adams at the keyboard, playing work by his favourite composers, underscore the way his pictures fused his two creative passions.

Lorca's Rural Trilogy, The House of Bernarda Alba

Federico Garcia Lorca's final play.
Translation by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata

Following the death of her second husband Bernarda Alba, a tyrannical matriarch, rules over her house and daughters, imposing an eight-year period of mourning.

Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 - 1936) is, with Cervantes, the best known figure in Spanish literature. Written in 1936 and completed just a few months before his execution, The House of Bernarda Alba is Lorca's final tragedy

Male chorus singers ..... Les Pratt, Martin Medina, Nathan Jenkins, Andrew Johnston, David Cane, Peter Edge, George Leeming.
Musical direction and original music composition by Conrad Nelson

"There lived Dona Bernarda, a very old widow who kept an inexorable and tyrannical watch over her unmarried daughters. They were prisoners deprived of free will... I saw them pass like shadows, always silent, and always dressed in black. It was a silent and cold hell in the African sun, a tomb for the living under the harsh rule of a dark jailer." - Lorca's description of a childhood memory which inspired the play.

MON 09:00 Essential Classics (b07vwlbb)
Monday - Sarah Walker with Gemma Jones

9am
My favourite... music from the court of Henry VIII. Music was an important part of the young Henry's education and he was a gifted instrumentalist and composer. He was keen to promote music within his lavish court and patronised musicians throughout his life. Sarah heads back to the 16th century as she discovers anonymous part songs and dances, both mournful and rowdy, that were written for Henry's court, plus pieces written as presents to the king from overseas, a work from Anne Boleyn's Songbook and music by one of Henry's leading court musicians, William Cornysh.

9.30am
Take part in today's challenge: listen to the clues and identify the mystery music-related object.

10am
Sarah's guest this week, sharing a selection of her favourite classical music, is the acclaimed actress Gemma Jones. Gemma's film credits range from Mrs Dashwood in the Academy Award-winning Sense and Sensibility to Bridget's mother in the hit Bridget Jones's Diary. She has performed Shakespearean roles including Portia in the Merchant of Venice, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth and Queen Margaret in Kevin Spacey's 2011 stage production of Richard III, directed by Sam Mendes. Gemma is also fondly remembered for her starring role in the BBC's The Duchess of Duke Street, and more recently featured aongside Tom Courtenay in the ITV drama Unforgotten, and in the BBC series Capital with Lesley Sharp and Toby Jones. Gemma's music choices include part of Mendelssohn's incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, which reminds her of performing in Peter Brook's production of the play, Bach's St John Passion, which Gemma recently sang with her choir, and Chopin's Waltz in B minor, Op.69 No.2, a piece that her father used to play.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance
Sarah places Music in Times as she delves into the Renaissance period to explore the close relationship between two popular dances of the time, the galliard and the pavan, as heard in Orlando Gibbons's Lord Salisbury's Pavan and Galliard.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the oboist Nicholas Daniel. Since winning the BBC's Young Musician of the Year competition in 1980, Daniel has toured the world as a virtuoso of the oboe, and has been a tireless champion of the instrument. His rich, flexible tone and brilliant technique have led him to perform not only the mainstays of the oboe repertoire, such as Vaughan Williams's Concerto and Mozart's Oboe Quartet, but also to commission many new pieces and unearth neglected works. He began directing orchestras from the oboe from the start of his career, and is now a respected conductor in his own right while, as a founder member of the Haffner Wind Ensemble and the Britten Oboe Quartet, he continues to pursue his love of chamber music. Sarah reflects the various facets of Daniel's career in her musical choices at 11am each day.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b07vwmtx)
Islands, Iona

Poet Kenneth Steven has a special relationship with the small Hebridean island of Iona, set in the Atlantic off the west coast of Scotland. It was the place of learning and worship in the 6th century, when St Columba brought Christianity from Ireland and set up a monastery, and today it still has a spiritual quality for many of its visitors. Kenneth has visited since he was a child and collected stones polished by the sea along its beaches. Today he reflects on Iona's place as a 'meeting of the sea roads, which has had such a profound impact on so many, and has done for longer than we can ever know'.

'..That is why
I keep returning, thirsty, to this place
That is older than my understanding,
Younger than my broken spirit.'.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Gemma Jones

9am
My favourite... music from the court of Henry VIII. Music was an important part of the young Henry's education and he was a gifted instrumentalist and composer. He was keen to promote music within his lavish court and patronised musicians throughout his life. Sarah heads back to the 16th century as she discovers anonymous part songs and dances, both mournful and rowdy, that were written for Henry's court, plus pieces written as presents to the king from overseas, a work from Anne Boleyn's Songbook and music by one of Henry's leading court musicians, William Cornysh.

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week, sharing a selection of her favourite classical music, is the acclaimed actress Gemma Jones. Gemma's film credits range from Mrs Dashwood in the Academy Award-winning Sense and Sensibility to Bridget's mother in the hit Bridget Jones's Diary. She has performed Shakespearean roles including Portia in the Merchant of Venice, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth and Queen Margaret in Kevin Spacey's 2011 stage production of Richard III, directed by Sam Mendes. Gemma is also fondly remembered for her starring role in the BBC's The Duchess of Duke Street, and more recently featured aongside Tom Courtenay in the ITV drama Unforgotten, and in the BBC series Capital with Lesley Sharp and Toby Jones. Gemma's music choices include part of Mendelssohn's incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, which reminds her of performing in Peter Brook's production of the play, Bach's St John Passion, which Gemma recently sang with her choir, and Chopin's Waltz in B minor, Op.69 No.2, a piece that her father used to play.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time. Today she dives into the Classical period and discovers Mozart's interest in baroque counterpoint. The young composer's Viennese contemporaries Joseph Haydn and Baron van Swieten encouraged him to pursue this academic approach to composition and the fruits of this dedicated period of study emerged in the String Quartet in G, K387.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the oboist Nicholas Daniel. Since winning the BBC's Young Musician of the Year competition in 1980, Daniel has toured the world as a virtuoso of the oboe, and has been a tireless champion of the instrument. His rich, flexible tone and brilliant technique have led him to perform not only the mainstays of the oboe repertoire, such as Vaughan Williams's Concerto and Mozart's Oboe Quartet, but also to commission many new pieces and unearth neglected works. He began directing orchestras from the oboe from the start of his career, and is now a respected conductor in his own right while, as a founder member of the Haffner Wind Ensemble and the Britten Oboe Quartet, he continues to pursue his love of chamber music. Sarah reflects the various facets of Daniel's career in her musical choices at 11am each day.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b07vws2b)
Islands, Hoy

Poet Kenneth Steven writes on Hoy, the only place of cliffs and mountains in the archipelago of the Orkney islands. Kenneth describes the beauty of the Orkney islands as seen in their greenness and lushness, in contrast to the harsher landscape of the north-east corner of Scotland just to their south. 'These islands seem almost cut out of some richly endowed agricultural shore far to the south and planted in the sea just to the top right of Scotland'. But Hoy is different, the island has a wildness not found elsewhere in the islands.

Kenneth reflects on the relationship between writer George Mackay Brown and the composer Peter Maxwell Davies, who died in 2016. They had met and Peter Maxwell Davies made the decision to live on Hoy in its rugged yet peaceful landscape. 'His falling in love with Hoy was not just a passing whim. He had to win his right to the place in almost fairy-tale like terms. But the peace he had so craved was all about him and his was able to compose; the music that flowed through him could be released at last.'.

10.30am
Music in Time: Modern
Sarah places Music in Time. Today we are in the Modern period with Florence Price's Symphony No.3 in C minor. Price was the first African-American woman composer to gain national recognition. Brought up in Arkansas, she graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music, determined to compose music for a living. She was helped by her friend the contralto Marian Anderson, an important figure in the struggle against racial prejudice in mid-1900s America, and was eventually inducted into the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers in 1940, the same year that she wrote her third symphony. This meant that her rights as a composer were certified and she could gain royalties from her work.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the oboist Nicholas Daniel. Since winning the BBC's Young Musician of the Year competition in 1980, Daniel has toured the world as a virtuoso of the oboe, and has been a tireless champion of the instrument.

Danish String Quartet

The hugely characterful Danish String Quartet have played music together since childhood; comprising of three Danes and one Norwegian cellist. The group joke that they are modern Vikings, noting that 'playing string quartets is our job, and yes it is hard work, but we mostly do it for pleasure, like we always did'. They bring their trademark energy to a performance of Beethoven's second 'Rasumovsky' Quartet, one of his most heroic chamber works, and a World premiere written by acclaimed Norwegian composer Rolf Wallin, commissioned by BBC Radio 3 and the Royal Philharmonic Society. Before that a lyrical, Sibelius-inspired miniature by their compatriot Per Nørgård. They are joined by the outstanding horn player Alec Frank-Gemmill, principal at the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, for Mozart's good-natured but highly virtuosic Horn Quintet.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b07vws2d)
Islands, Rum

Kenneth Steven looks at Rum, a wild and windswept Hebridean island, and responds to its landscape in poetry. Rum is the largest of a group making up the 'Small Isles', Rum, Muck, Eigg and Canna, lying west of the fishing port of Mallaig in the Scottish Highlands. 'I don't know a Hebridean island more beautiful to approach. Every time I do I think of it again as a treasure island.'

Its remote and rugged beauty attracted an eccentric Victorian industrialist, who bought it and attempted to transform it into his own vision of an island home, complete with a castle. 'The castle itself was built of red sandstone and shaped from the Isle of Arran. Greenhouses were brought for the growing of peaches, grapes and nectarines. There were heated pools for turtles and alligators; an aviary was constructed for birds of paradise and humming birds.'
It was not to last, and Kenneth looks at what's left of the island fantasy today, leaving him with a profound sense of sadness.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Gemma Jones

9am
My favourite... music from the court of Henry VIII. Music was an important part of the young Henry's education and he was a gifted instrumentalist and composer. He was keen to promote music within his lavish court and patronised musicians throughout his life. Sarah heads back to the 16th century as she discovers anonymous part songs and dances, both mournful and rowdy, that were written for Henry's court, plus pieces written as presents to the king from overseas, a work from Anne Boleyn's Songbook and music by one of Henry's leading court musicians, William Cornysh.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: trace the classical theme behind a well-known song.

10am
Sarah's guest this week, sharing a selection of her favourite classical music, is the acclaimed actress Gemma Jones. Gemma's film credits range from Mrs Dashwood in the Academy Award-winning Sense and Sensibility to Bridget's mother in the hit Bridget Jones's Diary. She has performed Shakespearean roles including Portia in the Merchant of Venice, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth and Queen Margaret in Kevin Spacey's 2011 stage production of Richard III, directed by Sam Mendes. Gemma is also fondly remembered for her starring role in the BBC's The Duchess of Duke Street, and more recently featured aongside Tom Courtenay in the ITV drama Unforgotten, and in the BBC series Capital with Lesley Sharp and Toby Jones. Gemma's music choices include part of Mendelssohn's incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream, which reminds her of performing in Peter Brook's production of the play, Bach's St John Passion, which Gemma recently sang with her choir, and Chopin's Waltz in B minor, Op.69 No.2, a piece that her father used to play.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Sarah places Music in Time. Today she heads back to the Baroque period as she discovers the events behind Bach's only piece of instrumental programme music, the Capriccio in B flat major 'on the Departure of his Beloved Brother'. The work describes the tender farewell of two friends, as one of them prepares to take a trip by postal coach - but who was the brother in question?

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the oboist Nicholas Daniel. Since winning the BBC's Young Musician of the Year competition in 1980, Daniel has toured the world as a virtuoso of the oboe, and has been a tireless champion of the instrument. His rich, flexible tone and brilliant technique have led him to perform not only the mainstays of the oboe repertoire, such as Vaughan Williams's Concerto and Mozart's Oboe Quartet, but also to commission many new pieces and unearth neglected works. He began directing orchestras from the oboe from the start of his career, and is now a respected conductor in his own right while, as a founder member of the Haffner Wind Ensemble and the Britten Oboe Quartet, he continues to pursue his love of chamber music. Sarah reflects the various facets of Daniel's career in her musical choices at 11am each day.

Medieval Manuscripts, Emma Donoghue, The Story of Boris Vian

Medieval illuminated manuscripts are our key to European art for hundreds of years but also to political and social movements. Christopher de Hamel, keeper of possibly the oldest gospel in the Latin world, talks to Matthew about the stories these books can tell beyond their glowing illustrations.
We also visit Colour: The Art and Science of Illuminated Manuscripts, currently glowing at Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum; Kylie Murray, expert on Scottish medieval literature and a New Generation Thinker, reviews the exhibition.
Emma Donoghue author of 'Room' is back with a new novel and another child in claustrophobic setting. This room is an earth-floored room in mid-19th century Ireland, where a Florence Nightingale-trained nurse and 'The Wonder', a devout Irish girl, are locked in a potentially fatal battle over whether the girl is, as she claims, being fed by manna from heaven. Inspired by a historical phenomenon, 'the fasting girls', Donoghue's novel takes place on the battlefield between the forces of Victorian scientific rationalism and traditional religious belief
Plus Dennis Duncan on the story of Boris Vian and a post-war best-seller in France - I Spit On Your Graves .

Emma Donoghue's novel is called The Wonder.
Meetings with Remarkable Manuscripts is by Christopher de Hamel - who has worked for Sothebys and is Fellow and librarian at Corpus Christi College Cambridge.
The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge is marking its first 200 year 1816 to 2016 with an exhibition called COLOUR: The Art and Science of Illuminated Manuscripts. It runs until 30th December 2016 and includes on display the Macclesfield Psalter, an alchemical scroll, a duchess' wedding gift, and the ABC of a five-year old princess.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b07vws2g)
Islands, Raasay

Poet Kenneth Steven writes on Raasay, an island close to Skye once home to the great Gaelic bard Sorley MacLean. Kenneth describes the history of this 'fiercely traditional island', with its continuing belief in the sanctity of the Sabbath Day - Sunday. 'This was prevalent until recently all across the Highlands and islands; it has faded with increasing secularisation, but on Raasay (as in other Outer Hebridean islands in particular) it remains firm'.
Kenneth looks at two famous sons of Raasay, both born in 1911. Calum MacLeod is famous for building a road across the island when requests for its construction had fallen on deaf ears. 'Over a period of about ten years he constructed one-and-three-quarter miles of road, using little more than a shovel, pick and wheelbarrow.'

But his main interest is in the work of Sorley Maclean, Gaelic poet. 'Gaelic was his mother tongue, the language of the heart, and the poetry he wrote was out of the burning fires of the heart. This was no gentle poetry. Sorley Maclean's people were from Raasay and Skye and the memory of their struggle for justice and for land beat within him like a living drum.'.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra's new season opens with a concert of Debussy, Szymanowski and Bartók. At the dawn of the 20th century Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune released a flood-tide of musical colour. Nicola Benedetti performs both of Szymanowski's violin concertos, then the full orchestra goes for broke as it enters the neon-lit fantasy-world of Bartók's The Miraculous Mandarin: music that's brutal, brilliant and utterly breathtaking.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b07vws2j)
Islands, St Kilda

Poet Kenneth Steven writes on the remote islands of St Kilda, where the community is only a distant memory echoed in the sound of seabirds. This is an island far out in the ocean. 'To make the sea crossing to St Kilda a boat is heading into the full fury of the North Atlantic; west of here lies nothing more than Rockall - and then America.'
Once a thriving community lived on the island known as Hirta. 'Not only was there life on St Kilda, there was joy in life. The reports written by early visitors make that abundantly clear: the people made music and danced, they were singers of songs and tellers of tales. They faced hardship together and even death on a daily basis, but this little society held together in happiness.'

But by 1930 the British Government wanted an end to the expense of supporting this remote colony, and the community were forced to take the decision to evacuate. Now there are only the empty shells of houses and the endless cries of seabirds.

'In all the cobbles, concrete years to come
Their islands promises to lie at the bottom of a glass,
Or silent forever in their eyes, a story frozen
Like a fly in the amber of time.'

Producer Mark Rickards.
