SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b07xh8yr)
Wagner's Tristan and Isolde

By 1859, the year Wagner finished Tristan and Isolde, doomed love, sex and death were pretty much staple operatic fare. But Wagner's epic re-telling of the mediaeval tale utterly overwhlemed nineteenth-century audiences with its unprecedented emotional and erotic power. Mark Twain 'cried the night away' after seeing it; Emmanuel Chabrier was already sobbing during the prelude. In fiction the fragile heroine of Thomas Mann's 1903 novella 'Tristan' dies after the emotional and sexual arousal caused by the opera and in fact the first singer to play Tristan died six weeks after its premiere.

Taking the monumental title roles in this production, recorded live at English National Opera's Coliseum in July, are Australian tenor Stuart Skelton and US soprano Heidi Melton. They head an outstanding cast and orchestra conducted by ex-ENO Music Director Edward Gardner, back at ENO for the first time since 2015.

Donald Macleod presents and talks to members of the cast and production team, including director Daniel Kramer, and an extended interview with designer, celebrated sculptor Anish Kapoor.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b07xhfcf)
Sound Frontiers: Jonathan Swain

Following this week's Building A Library choice of Tallis's Spem In Alium, join Jonathan Swain live at Southbank Centre as he explores music by Britten and Tippett written for our present Queen, and music by Byrd and Tallis which, like Spem in Alium, dates from the reign of her forebear and namesake Elizabeth I. There's a feast of American music as well, with works by Schuman, Bolcom and Gottschalk, culminating in Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07xhfch)
Grayson Perry

Grayson Perry burst into the public consciousness in 2003 when he accepted the Turner Prize with the words: 'It's about time a transvestite potter from Essex won the Turner.' Since then he's become celebrated for his beautiful, intricately decorated vases, which juxtapose images of innocence, obscenity and humour.
He's worked across many other media as well - from tapestry to bronze, print-making to architecture, and the outrageously flamboyant frocks he wears when he goes out dressed as a woman are works of art in their own right.

He chooses Tchaikovsky, Philip Glass, Marcello and Kathleen Ferrier and explores with Michael Berkeley the emotional power of music and memory; escaping an unhappy childhood; the fun of demystifying the art world; and the joys and perils of moving from rebel to national treasure.

There'll be live performances of Brazilian Sambas by the vocal group Nossa Voz, and a look at the recent Utopia project with the composer Boff Whalley, where singers from across the UK came together to form a choir demographically representing urban Britain. Director of Music at Clare College, Cambridge Graham Ross, and Southbank Participation Producer Holly Hunter, also discuss their choral projects whilst making predictions for the choral world in the future.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07xhfcz)
Tristan und Isolde

How do you listen to a four-hour opera? Tom Service considers the extraordinary impact of Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde, a medieval romance that became in Wagner's hands a highly-charged erotic drama of unfulfilled longing. It scandalised and over-excited early audiences in the 1860s, and it still has a profound effect on listeners. How come? Tom explores the influence of the philosopher Schopenhauer on Wagner's thinking, and how the composer's own love-life may have influenced this piece. And musicologist Kenneth Hamilton takes Tom through the radical musical structures in this piece, which somehow manage to remain unresolved over long stretches of music. Did one special chord really change music forever?

SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b07xhfd1)

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b07xhfd3)
Philip French and the Critical Ear

The writer Philip French, who died in 2015 was the creator for Radio 3 of its first regular review programme, Critics' Forum. On the 70th anniversary of the station, Laurence Scott talks to those who knew Philip and explores his long involvement with arts programming on BBC Radio.

When he died in 2015, Philip French received many and heartfelt eulogies to his intellect and sheer enjoyment of film as deployed for many decades in the review pages of the Observer newspaper. But French's contribution to shaping the taste of Britain's radio listeners was less remarked upon. This programme attempts to redress that.

Critics' Forum was Radio 3's first formal review programme, but the network was, from its inception as the Third Programme in 1946, always the home of legendary critical voices, and this feature traces that pernickety pathway from the sometimes snooty 1940s and 50s to the more demotic 1960s when Philip French's creative voice began to be heard on the network. Laurence Scott also charts what happened after Philip French's retirement, and whether formal reviewers still enjoy power in the digital age, when it's easy to express and share an opinion on anything.

And friends remember him as a comrades-in-arms in the often turbulent world of artistic review, and talks to those who remember him even as a student arguing passionately the merits and demerits of the latest film releases while swinging down the lane acting out every Gene Kelly move from 'Singing in the Rain'...

Producer Simon Elmes.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b07xhfd7)
Radio Beckett

Matthew Sweet presents a sequence of radio plays by Samuel Beckett, with Stephen Rea and Ian McKellen. Newly recorded in binaural sound as part of Radio 3's 70th season which celebrates seven decades of pioneering music and culture since the founding of the Third Programme.

Like no other dramatist, Beckett's works capture the pathos and irony of modern life.

In the decade following the success of Waiting for Godot (1952), Samuel Beckett wrote some of his most absorbing work for radio, including the BBC's Third Programme. These plays are suffused with a musicality which, though evident in his novels, poetry and plays, is particularly remarkable in this medium. They are concerned with human isolation and the frailty of memory and communication.

With the exception of the monologue FROM AN ABANDONED WORK, the plays can be heard in binaural surround sound. Just wear your headphones.

The plays will give a great insight into the development of Beckett's style and into his approach to sound. Increasingly different in tone and conception from his stage work, the radio plays become more abstract as characters become less individualised and more representative.

My favourite... Brahms Intermezzos. Such is his love of Brahms' piano music that Rob struggled to find his favourite intermezzos, but eventually chose a selection primarily from the Opp. 117-119 collections. They are performed by such varied Brahms interpreters as Steven Kovacevich, Clifford Curzon, Eugene Istomin, Evgeny Kissin and Glenn Gould, all of whom bring their unique, individual voices to the poetry of Brahms' piano-writing.

In the same year he made his directorial debut with Boi Boi Is Dead. His stage work includes Clybourne Park and the London riots play Little Revolution, while recent TV credits include The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Ashes to Ashes and Doctor Who. Throughout the week, Lucian shares his favourite pieces of classical music with Rob and on Friday he appears live in the Essential Classics pop-up studio at London's Southbank Centre.

Five under 40, Sound Frontiers: Anoushka Shankar

As part of Radio 3 live at Southbank Centre, London, Donald Macleod speaks to five members of a new generation of British composers about their work. Featuring music by Anoushka Shankar, Gwilym Simcock, Helen Grime, Anna Meredith and Daniel Kidane.

Donald's first guest this week is composer and sitar player Anoushka Shankar (1981-). Trained from the age of 9 by her father Ravi Shankar in the classical style of sitar playing, Shankar has made her mark internationally as a performer and as a composer. An instinct for musical collaboration and crossing musical boundaries has resulted in her own distinctive brand of composition, demonstrating the versatility of the sitar, and the art of blending traditional forms with world and folk influenced music.

The visit marked the beginning of several years of touring for the Mozart family, during which the young Wolfgang entertained and astonished audiences and patrons in cities throughout Europe. For the great 'virtuosi' of the next century, travel was to become a way of life, giving rise to countless stories whose echoes still resound today: from Mozart's proposal to Marie Antoinette to Mendelssohn's inspirational travels in Italy, and the fainting sufferers of 'Lisztomania'.

Power of Three - the next episode in a 70-part daily series of pioneering sounds from the BBC Third Programme and Radio 3 archives presented by David Hendy.

Followed by
Music in Time: Modern
Rob places Music in Time. Today, we are in the Modern period with music from a composer very much associated with the madcap world of early 20th century Paris: Poulenc. The Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra draws on a variety of stylistic sources, borrowing from the hypnotic sounds of the Balinese gamelan in the first movement and then turning to the grace of a Mozart slow movement in the second, though Poulenc's own characteristic personal touches - above all his sense of fun - underlie the whole piece.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the German conductor and composer Michael Gielen who when he retired in 2014, left behind an extensive recorded legacy. He held conducting posts from Vienna and Stockholm to Cincinnati and London. Besides championing the music of contemporary composers, he also excelled in music of the classical and romantic eras, which Rob focuses on this week, with Mozart's 'Haffner' Symphony, Schubert's 'Great' C major Symphony, Debussy's tennis-themed ballet Jeux, Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 and the opening Adagio from Mahler's final, incomplete Symphony No. 10.

Sound Frontiers: Thursday - Rob Cowan with Lucian Msamati

9am
My favourite... Brahms Intermezzos. Such is his love of Brahms' piano music that Rob struggled to find his favourite intermezzos, but eventually chose a selection primarily from the Opp. 117-119 collections. They are performed by such varied Brahms interpreters as Steven Kovacevich, Clifford Curzon, Eugene Istomin, Evgeny Kissin and Glenn Gould, all of whom bring their unique, individual voices to the poetry of Brahms' piano-writing.

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 is the actor Lucian Msamati. Best known for his role as Salladhor Saan in Game of Thrones, in 2015 Lucian he became the first black actor ever to play Iago in a Royal Shakespeare Company production of Othello, alongside Hugh Quarshie as Othello. In the same year he made his directorial debut with Boi Boi Is Dead. His stage work includes Clybourne Park and the London riots play Little Revolution, while recent TV credits include The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, Ashes to Ashes and Doctor Who. Throughout the week, Lucian shares his favourite pieces of classical music with Rob and on Friday he appears live in the Essential Classics pop-up studio at London's Southbank Centre.

10.30am
Power of Three - the next episode in a 70-part daily series of pioneering sounds from the BBC Third Programme and Radio 3 archives presented by David Hendy.

Followed by
Music in Time: Renaissance
Today Rob delves into the Renaissance period as he explores a typical 'parody mass', where composers would base each movement of a mass setting on the same musical theme. Rob looks at a master of this form of religious music-making, Palestrina, with his motet Tu es Petrus and the mass he based on it.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the German conductor and composer Michael Gielen who when he retired in 2014, left behind an extensive recorded legacy. He held conducting posts from Vienna and Stockholm to Cincinnati and London. Besides championing the music of contemporary composers, he also excelled in music of the classical and romantic eras, which Rob focuses on this week, with Mozart's 'Haffner' Symphony, Schubert's 'Great' C major Symphony, Debussy's tennis-themed ballet Jeux, Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 and the opening Adagio from Mahler's final, incomplete Symphony No. 10.

Sound Frontiers: Simon Rattle conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Sir Simon Rattle conducts the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in music by Brahms, Hans Rott and Bruckner, all pieces composed in Vienna in the year 1880.

Recorded in April and introduced from the Royal Festival Hall by Christopher Cook.

Brahms: Tragic Overture Op.81
Hans Rott: Scherzo from Symphony No.1 in E major
Bruckner: Symphony No.6 in A major

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Conducted by Sir Simon Rattle

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's Principal Artist, Sir Simon Rattle, here recreates the sound-world of Vienna in 1880, in a performance on period instruments of three works composed in that year. The three composers knew each other well, but were not exactly best friends: Brahms was the great tradition-bearer of Viennese music, and strongly disapproved of the new orchestral visions of Bruckner; Hans Rott was taking Bruckner's visions further, and was a massive influence on his flatmate Mahler, as can be heard in the movement from Rott's symphony. The disapproval of Brahms and the Viennese establishment eventually drove Bruckner to depression, and Rott to mental breakdown and a premature death - dramas and tensions played out in these pieces, heard in a new transparency with the OAE's period instruments.

FRI 21:55 Three Score and Ten (b07xhzy6)
