SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b07y9nlb)
Neville Marriner tribute, Matthew Kaner in Lucerne, Paul Robertson remembered

Presented by Tom Service

Including a tribute to the conductor Sir Neville Marriner, who died this month at the age of 92. Marriner's partnership with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, which he founded in 1959, is the most recorded of any orchestra and conductor. His musical career began as a violinist in the London Symphony Orchestra, and in the Philharmonia under Herbert von Karajan. With interviews from the BBC archives, Tom tells the story of one of the world's most loved conductors.

Also, Tom remembers the violinist Paul Robertson, who died in July. A founding member of the Medici Quartet, Robertson dedicated much of his career to research into music and its relationship with the mind. A near-death experience in 2008 led to him talking and writing about the visions he experienced while in a coma, and his book, "Soundscapes: A Musician's Journey Through Life and Death", was published in September.

And Matthew Kaner, Radio 3's Embedded Composer in 3, reports from this summer's Lucerne Festival, where he ran workshops for a new orchestral commission to be given its first performance in 2017.

SAT 17:00 Jazz Line-Up (b07y9nln)
Neil Cowley

Julian Joseph launches a brand new feature 'Up Close and Personal', featuring an interview with UK pianist Neil Cowley talking about his musical inspirations and sharing insights into his creative process.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b07y9nlq)
Berlioz's Beatrice et Benedict

Berlioz had been a life-long Shakespeare enthusiast and for his final opéra comique, Béatrice et Bénédict, he wrote his own libretto based on Shakespeare's comedy Much Ado about Nothing. The opera was completed in 1858, soon after Berlioz had finished The Trojans, and he received an overwhelming response at its premiere in Baden-Baden. However, the opera has not become part of the staple repertoire (although the Overture is often played independently), but it contains some delightful music, particularly for the female characters. This performance was recorded earlier this summer at the Glyndebourne Festival, with conductor Antonello Manacorda making his Glyndebourne debut in director Laurent Pelly's new production. The title roles are taken by mezzo-soprano Stéphanie d'Oustrac and tenor Paul Appleby, the sparring couple trying to hide their true feelings.
Presented by Andrew McGregor and Sarah Lenton.

Bénédict..... Paul Appleby (tenor)
Héro .....Anne-Catherine Gillet (soprano)

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b07y9nlv)
The Mind's Eye

You can never see through someone else's eyes, but can we, by stealth, tap into people's visual imaginations?

The mind's eye is something most of us take for granted - the 'secret cinema' inside our mind, turning sounds into shapes, characters into faces - it sometimes seems like a sixth sense. For those who have it.

Constantly viewing our own personal visuals, we are powerless to control it, and no one else can see it but us.

"A man hitting his head with a bible" or "A tree being chopped down"?
"A row of frogs" or "The bulging eyes of Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange"

Using a series of soundscapes, we hear the visual musings of a range of people: an architect, a school boy, a DJ, an artist amongst them - playing with the way people's own personal experiences influence their mental pictures.

But what about those who have no pictures in their brain?

"In my late 20's I was on a management course doing a relaxation exercise, and they asked us to imagine dawn. And I thought dawn? Well I know it's pink. But I couldn't see it, I couldn't imagine it."
Gill Morgan, doctor

First recognised, but not named in 1880 by Francis Galton, aphantasia, as Professor of Cognitive and Behavioural Neurology Adam Zeman has recently called it, is being explored by neuroscientists around the world. It may affect 2% of the population, and studies have shown that there is a sliding scale of non-imagers.

Some barely notice any difference in their relationship with their own personal history, but for others this may include an inability to recall life events.

"From talking to close friends it became obvious to me that 'the mind's eye' was not a figure of speech, phrases like, 'it takes you back' exist because that's what they do".
Nick Watkins, theoretical physicist

Encouraging Radio 3 listeners to become aware of their own 'secret cinema', 'Between The Ears' trepans into the little grey cells that bring imagination to light - giving a glimpse inside the film-reel unspooling in our brains.

Contributors: Professor Adam Zeman, Doctor Nick Watkins, Dame Gill Morgan, Michael Bywater

The voices of Susan Aldworth, Francesca Vinti, Luca Goodfellow, Emma Kilbey, Ford Hickson, Ian Goodfellow, Danny Webb and readings by John Dougall and Dilly Barlow.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b07y9q5s)
Jonathan Swain

Following this week's Building A Library choice of Elgar's Falstaff, Jonathan Swain sets off to look at the ways different composers have taken Shakespearean themes for inspiration. He focuses on the Tempest, with music from Chausson, Thomas Linley the Younger, Michael Nyman, and Tchaikovsky. The American season includes works by Edward MacDowell, Randall Thompson and William Schuman's 3rd Symphony.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07y9q5v)
Lara Feigel

Lara Feigel made her name writing about the relationship between life, love, literature and history in London during the Second World War with her wonderfully titled and highly praised book The Love Charm of Bombs.

Her latest, The Bitter Taste of Victory, returns to the 1940s and looks at British and American attempts to impose culture from abroad in the hope of 'civilising' post-war Germany.

She talks to Michael Berkeley about what it was in her family history that drew her to writing about the Second World War, the perils of romanticizing it, and the emotional toll of engaging with such a distressing period of history.

As well as Bach and Beethoven, Lara chooses music which reflects preoccupations and personalities in post-war Germany - Furtwängler's recording of Tristan und Isolde, a song from Marlene Dietrich, and music by Richard Strauss.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b078n8p2)
Repetition

The Listening Service - an odyssey through the musical universe with Tom Service. Join him on a journey of imagination and insight, exploring how music works.

Today - repetition.

It's been estimated that in 90 per cent of the music that we hear in our lives, we're hearing material that we've already listened to before, And if you think about the music you love the most - it's often built on repeated patterns, phrases and riffs.

So why do we need our music to be so repetitive?

Musicologist Elizabeth Hellmuth Margulis is on hand as Tom finds out why repetition is hard wired into our musical brains.

So join Tom as he presses repeat on music from Bach to Beyoncé, Haydn to Herbie Hancock, Stockhausen to Schubert.

Tune in and 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.

First broadcast in May 2016.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b07y9qy7)
The Secrets of the Music Reading Panel

To mark the 70th anniversary of the Third Programme, Charlotte Higgins investigates how the BBC chose new pieces of music for performance and broadcast through its Music Reading Panel. Who were these gatekeepers and what was the effect of the Panel's decisions on the wider musical landscape of the time?

In the 1930s, the BBC Music Department established a Music Reading Panel to decide which new compositions were suitable for broadcast. It was usually composed of three people including eminent living composers of the time, and was intended to be an independent body to preserve quality and music standards.

Composers hoping for a broadcast sent in their scores. Several were passed and the works put out on the air - a huge career boost for their creators. But many more were rejected, including some works by composers like Elisabeth Lutyens and Andrzej Panufnik. It even led to rumours of a 'blacklist' of those whose work, it was suggested, would never make the airwaves. Did such a list ever exist?

Charlotte Higgins explores how the decisions of the Music Reading Panel shaped and reflected the wider musical landscape throughout the decades, as a new spirit of adventure and experiment arrived in concert halls and academies. Inevitably there were composers who enjoyed success - and others who felt rejected.

She travels to the BBC's Written Archives Centre in Caversham to read through some of the reports written by the panel members. And she hears from those who were involved with the Panel or affected by its decisions.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b07y9qyd)
The Visa Affair

In 1965 Joe Orton visited the American Embassy in London to get a visa to attend the Broadway production of his outrageous West End hit 'Entertaining Mr Sloane' and was caught up in a Kafkaesque world of oppression and paranoia. He was forced into absurd interrogations and accused of "moral turpitude." In the mid-1960s Orton was one of the most talked about new playwrights of the decade - even attracting the attention of the Beatles to write them a new film.

Writer Jake Arnott has uncovered a previously unpublished story by Orton about his this encounter. This story becomes the heart of a new drama, in which Arnott also draws on letters, archive, newspaper reports and personal testimony to create a darkly comic drama revealing Orton's life and the world that he lived in.

Orton's first commission as a playwright was from Radio 3's predecessor the Third Programme in 1964 and this new play is part of the station's 70th season, celebrating seven decades of pioneering music and culture.

In 'The Visa Affair', Orton has just found success in the UK after years of obscurity, and Broadway beckons, but events in his past threaten his American dream. As embassy staff challenge him about his criminal record we follow a labyrinthine struggle as Joe is forced to defer to authority, deny his sexuality, and to look again at his subversive acts and how they affected his writing and work.

Throughout, Orton plays a game of hide and seek with bureaucracy - evading its surveillance whilst revealing its absurdity.

Orton's own narrative voice forms the heart of this drama. It is a rich source of character, dialogue and unfolding plot. Writer Jake Arnott says: "Though his work often seems surreal, Orton always insisted that what he wrote was reality. This is real. What excites me about this project is the opportunity to dramatise a hidden work: Orton's own encounter with the kind of absurd bureaucracy that he brilliantly depicts in his plays."

Monday - Sarah Walker with Ken Loach

9am
My favourite... 18th century overtures. Sarah shares a selection of her favourite overtures. These were designed to settle a restive audience and prepare them for an opera, or to open concerts or grand celebrations. Sarah's featured works include operatic overtures by Mozart and his rival Antonio Salieri, as well as instrumental pieces by Josef Myslivecek and by Handel - music that accompanied the firework display in London's Green Park in 1749 marking the end of the War of Austrian Succession.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: which location is being depicted in this piece of music?

10am
Sarah's guest is the celebrated film director Ken Loach. Ken's films include Cathy Come Home, whose powerful message helped to change the law on homelessness when it was first broadcast in 1966, as well as Kes, My Name is Joe and Sweet Sixteen. His work across television and film has won him awards including the BAFTA Fellowship and two Palmes d'Or for his 2006 film The Wind That Shakes The Barley, and for his most recent film, I, Daniel Blake, which tackles unemployment and poverty in Britain today. Ken talks about his directing career and his favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including music by Canteloube, Brahms and Haydn, who Ken insists is the best composer to get dressed to in the morning.

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: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time as she heads back to the Classical period with Haydn's Piano Sonata in B minor, Hob. XVI/32, which demonstrates how ornamentation in keyboard music of the time is less florid and conspicuous than in the Baroque period, reflecting the era's new tastes and ideas.

11am
Sarah's Artists of the Week are the Netherlands Chamber Choir. Founded in 1937, the Nederlands Kamerkoor has developed a worldwide reputation for its innovative commissions and collaborations, which include world premieres of works by Sir John Tavener, James MacMillan and Sir Harrison Birtwistle. The choir regularly performs with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orchestra of the 18th Century under Frans Bruggen and The Schönberg Ensemble, and have released a steady stream of award winning recordings. Sarah dips into the choir's archive throughout the week, sharing interpretations of music by the Dutch composer Sweelinck, as well as Rossini, Palestrina and Poulenc, a composer who wrote music especially for the choir.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07y9vp5)
Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959), A Room with a View

Donald Macleod looks at Martinu's extraordinary childhood in a small town on the Bohemian-Moravian border.

Caught up in the events of the Second World War, Bohuslav Martinu spent the majority of his life living in exile. When he was born in 1890, the little town of Policka was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A period of independence for Czechoslovakia came to an end when, in 1938, Hitler annexed part of the country to Germany. By the time of Martinu's death in 1959, he was living in Switzerland, where he was receiving treatment for cancer and the Communists had assumed power in his homeland. Yet, despite his protracted absence, Martinu remained spiritually attached to his homeland and readily acknowledged the influence of its music. But equally, as we'll hear across this week, Martinu's music expresses a rich diversity of styles. From his years spent in Paris there are works informed by the popularity of jazz and by Debussy and Stravinsky in the swinging 1920s. When he moved to the United States he turned to symphonic writing. On his return to Europe, he was drawn to Renaissance Art and produced chamber music, basking in the warmth of Nice as well as turning to the poetry of his beloved homeland. Drawing on all these experiences, Martinu was a prolific composer who worked ceaselessly at his craft. He produced a treasury of more than four hundred works across every conceivable form and instrumentation, which reflect not only his roots but his thirst for novelty and inspiration.

Martinu's birthplace, Policka, is a place like no other. He and his family lived at the top of the tower of St. James's church. Memories of the bird's-eye view one hundred and twenty feet high informed Martinu's musical imagination for his lifetime.

Brick, Stone, Glass, Steel, 288a Main Road

Novelist Mark Haddon reflects on the house in Northamptonshire which was his childhood home, until the age of 12:

"It was a detached, three bedroom, two storey new-build on a thin strip of reclaimed rubbish dump between the end of a red-brick terrace and the Smarts' bungalow. My father was an architect and although he didn't design the building himself it was, in its modest way, an architect's house, a couple of cuts above provincial 1960s boilerplate."

This week's Essays are part of the 70th birthday celebrations of the Third Programme: the network discussed architecture from its earliest days, covering both new initiatives and historic buildings, most notably in talks by Nikolaus Pevsner.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Ken Loach

9am
My favourite... 18th century overtures. Sarah shares a selection of her favourite overtures. These were designed to settle a restive audience and prepare them for an opera, or to open concerts or grand celebrations. Sarah's featured works include operatic overtures by Mozart and his rival Antonio Salieri, as well as instrumental pieces by Josef Myslivecek and by Handel - music that accompanied the firework display in London's Green Park in 1749 marking the end of the War of Austrian Succession.

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

10am
Sarah's guest is the celebrated film director Ken Loach. Ken's films include Cathy Come Home, whose powerful message helped to change the law on homelessness when it was first broadcast in 1966, as well as Kes, My Name is Joe and Sweet Sixteen. His work across television and film has won him awards including the BAFTA Fellowship and two Palme d'Ors for his 2006 film The Wind That Shakes The Barley, and for his most recent film, I, Daniel Blake, which tackles unemployment and poverty in Britain today. Ken talks about his directing career and his favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including music by Canteloube, Brahms and Haydn, who Ken insists is the best composer to get dressed to in the morning.

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
Sarah places Music in Time, taking a trip back to the Renaissance period courtesy of the familiar tune 'Greensleeves'. Sarah discovers that the song is actually based on an ancient progression called La Romanesca, and explores its famous connection with King Henry VIII.

11am
Sarah's Artists of the Week are the Netherlands Chamber Choir. Founded in 1937, the Nederlands Kamerkoor has developed a worldwide reputation for its innovative commissions and collaborations, which include world premieres of works by John Tavener, James MacMillan and Harrison Birtwistle. The choir regularly performs with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orchestra of the 18th Century under Frans Bruggen and The Schönberg Ensemble, and have released a steady stream of award winning recordings. Sarah dips into the choir's archive throughout the week, sharing interpretations of music by the Dutch composer Sweelinck, as well as Rossini, Palestrina and Poulenc, a composer who wrote music especially for the choir.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07yb2m0)
Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959), La vie parisienne

Donald Macleod finds the artistic hothouse of 1920s Paris reflected in Martinu's music, including Martinu's tale of love among the kitchen utensils, La revue de cuisine.

Caught up in the events of the Second World War, Bohuslav Martinu spent the majority of his life living in exile. When he was born in 1890, the little town of Policka was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A period of independence for Czechoslovakia came to an end when, in 1938, Hitler annexed part of the country to Germany. By the time of Martinu's death in 1959, he was living in Switzerland, where he was receiving treatment for cancer and the Communists had assumed power in his homeland. Yet, despite his protracted absence, Martinu remained spiritually attached to his homeland and readily acknowledged the influence of its music. But equally, as we'll hear across this week, Martinu's music expresses a rich diversity of styles. From his years spent in Paris there are works informed by the popularity of jazz and by Debussy and Stravinsky in the swinging 1920s. When he moved to the United States he turned to symphonic writing. On his return to Europe, he was drawn to Renaissance Art and produced chamber music, basking in the warmth of Nice as well as turning to the poetry of his beloved homeland. Drawing on all these experiences, Martinu was a prolific composer who worked ceaselessly at his craft. He produced a treasury of more than four hundred works across every conceivable form and instrumentation, which reflect not only his roots but his thirst for novelty and inspiration.

Having fallen in love with Paris while touring with the Czech Philharmonic as a violinist, in his twenties Martinu moved there on a permanent basis. The result was a proliferation of music which draws on the cross-fertilisation of culture he experienced around him. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959), Love and War

Donald Macleod assesses the converging events surrounding Martinu's love affair with Vitezslava Kapralova. Today's music includes excerpts from Martinu's opera of dreams, Julietta.

Caught up in the events of the Second World War, Bohuslav Martinu spent the majority of his life living in exile. When he was born in 1890, the little town of Policka was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A period of independence for Czechoslovakia came to an end when, in 1938, Hitler annexed part of the country to Germany. By the time of Martinu's death in 1959, he was living in Switzerland, where he was receiving treatment for cancer and the Communists had assumed power in his homeland. Yet, despite his protracted absence, Martinu remained spiritually attached to his homeland and readily acknowledged the influence of its music. But equally, as we'll hear across this week, Martinu's music expresses a rich diversity of styles. From his years spent in Paris there are works informed by the popularity of jazz and by Debussy and Stravinsky in the swinging 1920s. When he moved to the United States he turned to symphonic writing. On his return to Europe, he was drawn to Renaissance Art and produced chamber music, basking in the warmth of Nice as well as turning to the poetry of his beloved homeland. Drawing on all these experiences, Martinu was a prolific composer who worked ceaselessly at his craft. He produced a treasury of more than four hundred works across every conceivable form and instrumentation, which reflect not only his roots but his thirst for novelty and inspiration.

For Martinu, his breakthrough opera Julietta was a major artistic achievement. At the same time his personal life became more complicated when he fell in love with a young and talented fellow Czech composer. When the Second World War broke out, there were irrevocable consequences.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Ken Loach

9am
My favourite... 18th century overtures. Sarah shares a selection of her favourite overtures. These were designed to settle a restive audience and prepare them for an opera, or to open concerts or grand celebrations. Sarah's featured works include operatic overtures by Mozart and his rival Antonio Salieri, as well as instrumental pieces by Josef Myslivecek and by Handel - music that accompanied the firework display in London's Green Park in 1749 marking the end of the War of Austrian Succession.

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

10am
Sarah's guest is the celebrated film director Ken Loach. Ken's films include Cathy Come Home, whose powerful message helped to change the law on homelessness when it was first broadcast in 1966, as well as Kes, My Name is Joe and Sweet Sixteen. His work across television and film has won him awards including the BAFTA Fellowship and two Palme d'Ors for his 2006 film The Wind That Shakes The Barley, and for his most recent film, I, Daniel Blake, which tackles unemployment and poverty in Britain today. Ken talks about his directing career and his favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including music by Canteloube, Brahms and Haydn, who Ken insists is the best composer to get dressed to in the morning.

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: Modern
Sarah places Music in Time. Today we are in the Modern period, where Sarah considers the healthy mutual admiration between 'complex' composers and those who favour a more experimental and minimalist style. She looks at a recording of Howard Skempton's Even Tenor, performed by composer and pianist Michael Finnissy.

11am
Sarah's Artists of the Week are the Netherlands Chamber Choir. Founded in 1937, the Nederlands Kamerkoor has developed a worldwide reputation for its innovative commissions and collaborations, which include world premieres of works by John Tavener, James MacMillan and Harrison Birtwistle. The choir regularly performs with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orchestra of the 18th Century under Frans Bruggen and The Schönberg Ensemble, and have released a steady stream of award winning recordings. Sarah dips into the choir's archive throughout the week, sharing interpretations of music by the Dutch composer Sweelinck, as well as Rossini, Palestrina and Poulenc, a composer who wrote music especially for the choir.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07yb2mb)
Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959), Stars and Stripes

Donald Macleod follows the dramatic events of Martinu's flight from war-torn Europe to America, where he begins to write symphonies.

Caught up in the events of the Second World War, Bohuslav Martinu spent the majority of his life living in exile. When he was born in 1890, the little town of Policka was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A period of independence for Czechoslovakia came to an end when, in 1938, Hitler annexed part of the country to Germany. By the time of Martinu's death in 1959, he was living in Switzerland, where he was receiving treatment for cancer and the Communists had assumed power in his homeland. Yet, despite his protracted absence, Martinu remained spiritually attached to his homeland and readily acknowledged the influence of its music. But equally, as we'll hear across this week, Martinu's music expresses a rich diversity of styles. From his years spent in Paris there are works informed by the popularity of jazz and by Debussy and Stravinsky in the swinging 1920s. When he moved to the United States he turned to symphonic writing. On his return to Europe, he was drawn to Renaissance Art and produced chamber music, basking in the warmth of Nice as well as turning to the poetry of his beloved homeland. Drawing on all these experiences, Martinu was a prolific composer who worked ceaselessly at his craft. He produced a treasury of more than four hundred works across every conceivable form and instrumentation, which reflect not only his roots but his thirst for novelty and inspiration.

After a perilous journey of some months' duration, the Martinus eventually arrived in America. Unable to speak the language, exhausted and penniless, Martinu set about establishing himself as a composer all over again.

Bohuslav Martinu (1890-1959), The Nomad

Donald Macleod assesses Martinu's complicated relationship with his homeland.

Caught up in the events of the Second World War, Bohuslav Martinu spent the majority of his life living in exile. When he was born in 1890, the little town of Policka was still part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A period of independence for Czechoslovakia came to an end when, in 1938, Hitler annexed part of the country to Germany. By the time of Martinu's death in 1959, he was living in Switzerland, where he was receiving treatment for cancer and the Communists had assumed power in his homeland. Yet, despite his protracted absence, Martinu remained spiritually attached to his homeland and readily acknowledged the influence of its music. But equally, as we'll hear across this week, Martinu's music expresses a rich diversity of styles.

Drawing on all these experiences, Martinu was a prolific composer who worked ceaselessly at his craft. He produced a treasury of more than four hundred works across every conceivable form and instrumentation, which reflect not only his roots but his thirst for novelty and inspiration.

Having lived abroad since the 1920s, in 1952 Martinu became an American citizen. Thereafter he divided his time between the United States and Europe. His final opera, The Greek Passion, is a tale of the dispossessed - perhaps a reflection of his own nomadic existence.

The arresting opening of Mozart's early G minor Symphony sets the scene for a work of almost operatic agitation and turbulance. Jennifer Pike joins the BBC Philharmonic for Sibelius's haunting Violin Concerto. Sibelius, a violinist who had dreamed of being a virtuoso himself, wrote the work while suffering particularly badly from the alcoholism which dogged his life and it is said that the second movement was sketched during a three-day hangover. The programme ends with Dvorak's Eighth Symphony with its myriad tunes, moods and dances. In this colourful piece Dvorak takes the symphony on an exploratory adventure.
