SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b080xl27)
John Cage in letters

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Today Sara delves into a new book of the letters of John Cage, one of the most original composers and thinkers of the 20th Century, with the help of its editor Laura Kuhn and composers Pauline Oliveros and Peter Dickinson. She visits a house in north London inspired by the piano music of Erik Satie and previews a rare new production of Karl Amadeus Hartmann's opera Simplicius Simplicissimus presented by Independent Opera at Sadler's Wells.

John Cage in letters

Artist, philosopher, theorist and man of letters – the American composer John Cage is known for the minimalist works with which he helped to re-define the sound of the 20th Century, but his curiosity went far beyond music.

Cage’s interest in Zen and the iChing are well known, and he is perhaps the only composer whose most famous work, 4’33”, involves musicians playing not a single note. The introduction of chance into his compositional process played a big role in the music Cage produced, and in his collaborations with his partner, the choreographer Merce Cunningham.

But Cage took fewer chances with his written missives. A prolific letter-writer, for many years Cage used a carbon-copy notepad – a practise which left thousands of copies in the Cage archive.

Sara Mohr-Pietsch talks to Laura Kuhn, the Executive Director of the Cage Trust, about her work on a newly published volume of selected Cage letters – many of them to cultural heavyweights such as Pierre Boulez, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Leonard Bernstein – and reviews the volume with two composers who knew Cage, Pauline Oliveros and Peter Dickinson.

Vex House - architecture inspired by Satie

Satie’s Vexation is a short piece – about 3 minutes – transformed into a mammoth loop by the composer’s instruction to repeat it 840 times. John Cage was enchanted by it, and helped turn Vexations into one of Satie’s best-known works by publishing the piece and arranging its first performance. Now Satie’s composition loop has inspired a house in North London.

Architect’s Chance de Silva have teamed up with the sound artist Scanner, aka Robin Rimbaud, to build a house which has features inspired by the loops and repetitions of Satie’s Vexations built into its very fabric – and which has a dedicated piece of music to accompany it, produced by Scanner.

Sara visits the house as it nears completion, and talks to architect Steven Chance and Scanner, about how they drew on Satie’s Vexations to design the building.

Simplicius Simplicissimus

Karl Amadeus Hartmann wrote his opera Simplicius Simplicissimus in the 1930s as a protest against the rising power of the Nazis in Germany. Based on the Baroque allegorical novel by Grimmelhausen, which is a commentary on the Thirty Years War, Hartmann intended his opera to draw parallels to the political degradations of his own time.

While Hartmann’s work remains relatively little-known, Simplicius Simplicissimus has is being premiered in the UK by Independent Opera, which commissioned an English translation of the work to be performed at the Lilian Baylis Studio, Sadler’s Wells.

Sara went to a rehearsal of the work to meet director, Polly Graham, and conductor Timothy Redmond to find out more.

SAT 18:30 Words and Music (b00vl3yx)
Witches and Sorcerers

As Halloween approaches Words and Music takes a suitably dark turn, with a programme built around the theme of witches and sorcerers; those sinister beings who have captured the imagination and chilled the blood of poets, dramatists and composers for centuries. This edition also brings together a critically-acclaimed theatrical duo: Juliet Stevenson and Henry Goodman.

From Shakespeare's cauldron-stirring hags to Christopher Marlowe's tortured Dr Faustus, this is an exploration of some of literature's most iconic witches and wizards. Music ranges from Mussorgsky's Night on the Bare Mountain to Nina Simone's classic Put a Spell on You; from Dukas's much loved The Sorcerer's Apprentice to Thomas Ades's The Tempest.

On the night associated with creatures of darkness, Words and Music takes you to the land of Oz, home of the Wicked Witch of the West; sweeps you into Goethe's account of the sorcerer's misguided apprentice; and transports you to Prospero's isle, as the wizard-ruler struggles to abandon his magical powers.

SAT 19:45 Opera on 3 (b080xp50)
Felicien David's Herculanum

Live from Ireland's National Opera House, Sean Rafferty introduces Herculanum by Félicien David in a new production for Wexford Opera Festival 2016 by director Stephen Medcalf. Jean-Luc Tingaud conducts Wexford Festival Opera Chorus and Orchestra and a cast of soloists including soprano Olga Busuioc and tenor Andrew Haji as the young Christian couple Lilia and Helios, Daniela Pini (mezzo-soprano) as the evil pagan queen and bass Simon Bailey as her brother Nicanor.

The plot is set in 79 AD in Herculaneum, the ancient city neighbouring Pompeii just before the famous volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius which destroyed the cities. Félicien David's Herculanum puts the volcano and its eruption centre-stage: a potent symbol of sexual passion according to director Stephen Medcalf, but with very different intentions to those featured in Mozart's Così fan tutte, which also places Mount Vesuvius as a backdrop. David's puritanical Victorian perspective sees the rumbling as God's anger against the beauty-worshipping world of the pagan queen Olympia, her brother Nicanor and the hedonistic kingdom they rule - the volcano remains a clandestine sexual symbol but its overt presence is as the guardian of morality. The story pits the young Christian couple, Hélios and Lilia, against the evil Olympia. Olympia finds herself attracted to Hélios and so ignores the advice of her brother Nicanor to put the slave to death. Nicanor then attempts to seduce the slave Lilia but is struck dead when he tells her that her God does not exist ...

The 4-act grand opera with libretto by Joseph Méry and Térence Hadot was first performed in Théâtre Impérial de l'Opéra in Paris on 4th March 1859 and has only recently been revived from obscurity. In 1859, Herculanum was a success and was performed on the Opéra stage 74 times during the following nine years - in fact it was performed at the Opéra nearly as often as Gounod's Faust and more often than Mozart's Don Giovanni.

SUN 09:00 River of Music (b080xq5d)
Part 1

The halfway point of BBC Radio 3's 70th anniversary celebrations is marked by a unique event in the history of the station: a non-stop river of music that will flow for an uninterrupted 12 hours.

An expertly curated sequence of 70 works represents Radio 3 in all its musical facets, reflecting the pioneering spirit that over the decades has championed music from the brand-new to the most-loved, while promoting the greatest artists of successive eras. The musical range is huge - from the medieval period to today - and reflects the station's commitment to world music and jazz as well as its core classical output.

It promises to be a fascinating voyage of discovery, challenge and delight. The selection can't possibly be definitive but it will be immensely entertaining as one work ebbs and another flows in juxtapositions that are humorous or poignant, subtle or thrilling.

Each of the pieces played during the day is connected to a particular year and a historical, political or cultural happening that had a musical resonance at the time. Along the way, some of the world's most important musical figures choose works that they see as "game-changing" moments in their own lives: Sir Mark Elder, Dame Emma Kirkby, Sir Neville Marriner, Oliver Knussen, and more.

The hosts are Essential Classics' Sarah Walker and Rob Cowan, who throughout the day provide an entirely online commentary on the pieces that make up the River of Music. This brand new way of presenting a music programme on BBC Radio 3 sees images, videos, social media posts and live blog updates posted throughout the day. Listeners can get involved by following the liveblog on bbc.co.uk/radio3, engaging with Radio 3 on Facebook and Twitter and contacting Rob and Sarah by text and email.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b080xqq4)
The Stroma Sessions

'The Blackletter Quartet', a new music ensemble, had an idea: to write and record an album on Stroma, an abandoned island off the north coast of Scotland.

Five years after the Quartet's disappearance, 'The Stroma Sessions' - a series of audio files charting the musicians' time on the island and the music they created there - were discovered on the internet.

Stroma was abandoned in the early 1960s: its few remaining buildings stand dilapidated, battered by the North Sea. The four musicians sought inspiration in the ruined houses and unforgiving weather. They wanted to make music in a ghost town. The evidence suggests they found what they were looking for.

MON 09:00 Essential Classics (b080xrql)
Monday - Sarah Walker with Debbie Horsfield

9am
My favourite... Scarlatti sonatas. This week Sarah shares her favourite examples of Domenico Scarlatti's quixotic pieces for keyboard. Written principally for the entertainment of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families, Scarlatti deploys myriad virtuosic techniques to create sonatas that can be stately, scampering or thoughtful. Sarah showcases sonatas displaying these qualities, and more, in performances by pianists and harpsichordists including Yevgeny Sudbin and Andreas Staier.

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 theatre and television writer Debbie Horsfield. Debbie recently adapted Winston Graham's Poldark for BBC One. The hit adaptation, starring Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark, won the Radio Times Audience Award at this year's BAFTAs, and a third series has just been commissioned. Debbie started her career working for Trevor Nunn at the Royal Shakespeare Company, going on to become the resident writer at the Liverpool Playhouse. Her other television writing credits include The Riff Raff Element and Cutting It, which both earned her BAFTA Best Drama Series award nominations, as well as True Dare Kiss and All The Small Things. Debbie talks about her writing, and about heading to the Cornish cliffs to research Poldark, and shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Bizet and Brahms, as well as Anne Dudley's soundtrack to Poldark.

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.

Music in Time: Modern
Sarah places Music in Time. Today she's in the Modern period, discovering the unusual modes and strange scales employed by the French avant-garde composer Erik Satie in his Gnossiennes, as he searched for his own musical language.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are Collegium Musicum 90. One of the UK's leading baroque orchestras, Collegium Musicum 90 was founded by the violinist, and former leader of the English Concert, Simon Standage, and the late conductor Richard Hickox, taking its name from the musical ensembles and societies prevalent in the 17th and 18th centuries. The orchestra has recorded a wide variety of music from the baroque and early classical period, appearing in Europe and British music festivals, including the BBC Proms. Sarah showcases a selection of their recordings including a Mass by Haydn, concertos by Vivaldi and Albinoni, and overtures and suites by Thomas Arne and Telemann.

Haydn
Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, 'Kleine Orgelmesse', Hob. XXII:7

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b080xrqn)
Meredith Monk (1942-), The Magician of the Voice

American composer Meredith Monk finds her unique voice, presented by Donald Macleod.

Meredith Monk has been described as one of America's coolest composers. She is also a singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Monk's singular voice has been the central component in the work she has created over a trajectory spanning more than fifty years. As a pioneer in extended vocal technique and a composer of vocal and instrumental music, she has developed distinct sound worlds that have been described as "a beguiling repertoire of aviary microtones, robust yodels, and dusky, low-range chanting" and also as "a peerless mixture of otherworldly and human." Her music is identifiable as distinctly Meredith Monk, and has historically provoked strong reactions from audiences and critics alike. Now in her seventies Monk still tours performing her own works, and it was in Cologne where Donald Macleod caught up with her for Composer of the Week, to discuss her remarkable life and unique music.

Music and singing is in Meredith Monk's DNA. Her mother sang operetta, popular songs, and jingles for commercials. Her grandfather was an operatic bass who set up a conservatory in Harlem, and her great-grandfather was a cantor in a Moscow synagogue, and was invited to sing for the Tsar of Russia. In conversation with Donald Macleod Meredith Monk discusses her early influences from family, school and college, and how her career went on to develop in New York at a time, 1965, when she had a revelation about the possibilities of the human voice.

Jacques Imbrailo (baritone)
Sholto Kynoch (piano)

The culmination of the Oxford Lieder Festival's Schumann Project, this concert features a star cast in two of Schumann's cycles for four singers and piano. In Minnespiel, Op. 101, Schumann sets poems of Friedrich Rückert in a series of eight solos, duets and quartets. The Spanische Liebeslieder, Op. 138, follows a similar pattern, but with the ensemble including four hands at the piano; an inspiration for Brahms's later Liebeslieder Walzer. Together with other songs and duets, they form a fitting and uplifting send-off to the Festival.

MON 21:55 Three Score and Ten (b080xrr0)
Douglas Dunn and Michael Longley

Ian McMillan with another episode in this series. From the 1970s and brand new or unpublished poetry series Poetry Now, Douglas Dunn reads his 'Ballad of the Two Left Hands' and Michael Longley reads 'Ash Keys' and 'Frozen Rain'.

Three Score and Ten features archive recordings from the last seven decades of the Third Programme and Radio 3, with 70 remarkable poets reading their own poems. Amongst them T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, WH Auden, Seamus Heaney and Carol Ann Duffy. Plus ten brand new poems by contemporary poets commissioned specially for the series and broadcast on The Verb.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b080xrxq)
The Book that Changed Me, David Simon

David Simon, the author and creator of the TV series "The Wire", describes how "Let Us Now Praise Famous Men" by James Agee and Walker Evans changed his work as a journalist. The celebrated work capturing the lives of ordinary people during the depression made him realise the importance of sharing "the simple, raw vulnerability" of lived experience. "Page after page was fully ripe with the delicate work of a thinking journalist who knows with all moral certitude that he is approaching and attempting to capture the love, fear and sadness of real lives."
Producer: Smita Patel.

MON 23:00 Jazz Now (b07z6f8g)
John Coltrane Special

In what would have been John Coltrane's 90th birthday year, Soweto Kinch presents a Coltrane special. From Surrey University's "Retrospect and Prospect" conference, Gary Crosby's quartet with Denys Baptiste re-explore "A Love Supreme". Conference participants bring their own views on Coltrane to the show, and we hear a report from last month's Toronto Film Festival where a new Coltrane documentary had its international premiere. Plus Al Ryan reviews some previously unissued Coltrane performances and talks to pianist McCoy Tyner.

TUE 09:00 Essential Classics (b080xy0n)
Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Debbie Horsfield

9am
My favourite... Scarlatti sonatas. This week Sarah shares her favourite examples of Domenico Scarlatti's quixotic pieces for keyboard. Written principally for the entertainment of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families, Scarlatti deploys myriad virtuosic techniques to create sonatas that can be stately, scampering or thoughtful. Sarah showcases sonatas displaying these qualities, and more, in performances by pianists and harpsichordists including Yevgeny Sudbin and Andreas Staier.

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

10am
Sarah's guest is the theatre and television writer Debbie Horsfield. Debbie recently adapted Winston Graham's Poldark for BBC One. The hit adaptation, starring Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark, won the Radio Times Audience Award at this year's BAFTAs, and a third series has just been commissioned. Debbie started her career working for Trevor Nunn at the Royal Shakespeare Company, going on to become the resident writer at the Liverpool Playhouse. Her other television writing credits include The Riff Raff Element and Cutting It, which both earned her BAFTA Best Drama Series award nominations, as well as True Dare Kiss and All The Small Things. Debbie talks about her writing, and about heading to the Cornish cliffs to research Poldark, and shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Bizet and Brahms, as well as Anne Dudley's soundtrack to Poldark.

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.

Music in Time: Renaissance
Sarah places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on William Byrd's 1558 setting of the Catholic poem 'Why do I use Paper, Ink and Pen', published at a time when the monarchy sought to bolster the fledgling Protestant faith by persecuting the Catholic faith in all its manifestations.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are Collegium Musicum 90. One of the UK's leading baroque orchestras, Collegium Musicum 90 was founded by the violinist, and former leader of the English Concert, Simon Standage, and the late conductor Richard Hickox, taking its name from the musical ensembles and societies prevalent in the 17th and 18th centuries. The orchestra has recorded a wide variety of music from the baroque and early classical period, appearing in Europe and British music festivals, including the BBC Proms. Sarah showcases a selection of their recordings including a Mass by Haydn, concertos by Vivaldi and Albinoni, and overtures and suites by Thomas Arne and Telemann.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b080xygb)
Meredith Monk (1942-), Singing Beneath a Dolmen

Meredith Monk sits and sings beneath a Dolmen in France, presented by Donald Macleod.

Meredith Monk has been described as one of America's coolest composers. She is also a singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Monk's singular voice has been the central component in the work she has created over a trajectory spanning more than fifty years. As a pioneer in extended vocal technique and a composer of vocal and instrumental music, she has developed distinct sound worlds that have been described as "a beguiling repertoire of aviary microtones, robust yodels, and dusky, low-range chanting" and also as "a peerless mixture of otherworldly and human." Her music is identifiable as distinctly Meredith Monk, and has historically provoked strong reactions from audiences and critics alike. Now in her seventies Monk still tours performing her own works, and it was in Cologne where Donald Macleod caught up with her for Composer of the Week, to discuss her remarkable life and unique music.

In 1965 Meredith Monk had a revelation regarding the capabilities of the human voice, and created her own unique vocal technique. From the start Monk was interested in primordial utterance, the first sounds humans made. It was on a trip to France where she had the opportunity to visit a megalithic Dolmen. Sat beneath this stone table structure, singing with friends, Monk was inspired to compose Dolmen Music. During the 1970s she was also busy creating large scale site-specific works, including her opera epic Vessel. Quarry, another opera, she composed in 1976. Monk has said that in her whole lifetime, she felt most on fire when composing this work.

The Book that Changed Me, Pauline Black

Pauline Black, the singer who found fame with the ska band The Selecter, on how Harper Lee's "To Kill A Mockingbird" helped her understand her place as a black girl adopted by a white family. She both identified with Scout, the tomboyish main character, while it was the first book she read in which the black characters "shared a dignity and gravitas". It allowed her to understand the racial tensions and hypocrisy which surrounded her childhood. "This novel gave the little black girl that timidly lingered inside me the security to come out and fight against racial injustice with my chosen profession, music."

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b080xygf)
Meredith Monk (1942-), The Detective Composer

Composing music is like jumping off a cliff says Meredith Monk, presented by Donald Macleod.

Meredith Monk has been described as one of America's coolest composers. She is also a singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Monk's singular voice has been the central component in the work she has created over a trajectory spanning more than fifty years. As a pioneer in extended vocal technique and a composer of vocal and instrumental music, she has developed distinct sound worlds that have been described as "a beguiling repertoire of aviary microtones, robust yodels, and dusky, low-range chanting" and also as "a peerless mixture of otherworldly and human." Her music is identifiable as distinctly Meredith Monk, and has historically provoked strong reactions from audiences and critics alike. Now in her seventies Monk still tours performing her own works, and it was in Cologne where Donald Macleod caught up with her for Composer of the Week, to discuss her remarkable life and unique music.

In conversation with Donald Macleod, composer Meredith Monk describes her compositional process as similar to jumping off a cliff, where she always tries to start with nothing, and encourages herself to take risks. Monk feels that composing is like being a detective where she is looking for a clue, and once found she then starts to work with it. In The Games, Monk has described this work as being like delving into the process of nature. Meredith Monk also discusses composing for, and directing film, including Ellis Island and Book of Days.

The Book that Changed Me, Ben Anderson

Ben Anderson, correspondent with Vice News, on how "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" led him to become a journalist. He discovered the book, ghost-written by Alex Haley, as "a skinny white kid living in Bedford". Yet the story of the American firebrand for the cause of black power became his touchstone. He was inspired by the way Malcolm X devoured every possible book while in prison. "Suddenly a fire was lit inside me. I had a path to follow," Anderson says. And Malcolm X's urge to see the world for himself was another source of inspiration. "This basic approach of just getting there and witnessing has become my job," he says. Malcolm X's " constant search, his relentless curiosity, his willingness to face unpleasant facts and reinvent himself, set an example that I?ve tried to follow ever since."

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Debbie Horsfield

9am
My favourite... Scarlatti sonatas. This week Sarah shares her favourite examples of Domenico Scarlatti's quixotic pieces for keyboard. Written principally for the entertainment of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families, Scarlatti deploys myriad virtuosic techniques to create sonatas that can be stately, scampering or thoughtful. Sarah showcases sonatas displaying these qualities, and more, in performances by pianists and harpsichordists including Yevgeny Sudbin and Andreas Staier.

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 is the theatre and television writer Debbie Horsfield. Debbie recently adapted Winston Graham's Poldark for BBC One. The hit adaptation, starring Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark, won the Radio Times Audience Award at this year's BAFTAs, and a third series has just been commissioned. Debbie started her career working for Trevor Nunn at the Royal Shakespeare Company, going on to become the resident writer at the Liverpool Playhouse. Her other television writing credits include The Riff Raff Element and Cutting It, which both earned her BAFTA Best Drama Series award nominations, as well as True Dare Kiss and All The Small Things. Debbie talks about her writing, and about heading to the Cornish cliffs to research Poldark, and shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Bizet and Brahms, as well as Anne Dudley's soundtrack to Poldark.

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.

Music in Time: Romantic
Sarah places Music in Time, heading back to Paris in the late 1830s to discover the pioneering rehearsal practices of Berlioz as he prepared for the premiere of his large-scale choral symphony Roméo et Juliette.

11.15am
Sarah's artists of the week are Collegium Musicum 90. One of the UK's leading baroque orchestras, Collegium Musicum 90 was founded by the violinist, and former leader of the English Concert, Simon Standage, and the late conductor Richard Hickox, taking its name from the musical ensembles and societies prevalent in the 17th and 18th centuries. The orchestra has recorded a wide variety of music from the baroque and early classical period, appearing in Europe and British music festivals, including the BBC Proms. Sarah showcases a selection of their recordings including a Mass by Haydn, concertos by Vivaldi and Albinoni, and overtures and suites by Thomas Arne and Telemann.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b080xygn)
Meredith Monk (1942-), Music at Play

Meredith Monk discusses humour in her music, and coyotes! Presented by Donald Macleod.

Meredith Monk has been described as one of America's coolest composers. She is also a singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Monk's singular voice has been the central component in the work she has created over a trajectory spanning more than fifty years. As a pioneer in extended vocal technique and a composer of vocal and instrumental music, she has developed distinct sound worlds that have been described as "a beguiling repertoire of aviary microtones, robust yodels, and dusky, low-range chanting" and also as "a peerless mixture of otherworldly and human." Her music is identifiable as distinctly Meredith Monk, and has historically provoked strong reactions from audiences and critics alike. Now in her seventies Monk still tours performing her own works, and it was in Cologne where Donald Macleod caught up with her for Composer of the Week, to discuss her remarkable life and unique music.

In 1978 Meredith Monk founded her own ensemble to perform her music. This group she feels are a part of her own body, and that the singers' bodies are an integral part of the expression of her music. One long serving member is the cellist and singer Robert Een. They collaborated together on Facing North in 1990, which includes the sounds of coyotes, demonstrating Monk's interest in humour and playfulness. Monk also discusses her thoughts on other choirs and ensembles performing her music.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra - Mozart, Mahler

Live from City Halls, Glasgow

Presented by Jamie MacDougall

Donald Runnicles and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra are joined by Carolyn Sampson to perform Mozart's Exsultate jubilate, and Mahler's Fourth Symphony.

Mozart: Exsultate jubilate
Mozart: Symphony in D major 'La finta giardiniera'

Mahler: Symphony No. 4

Carolyn Sampson (soprano)
Donald Runnicles (conductor)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Donald Runnicles, Conductor Emeritus of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, presents works by Mozart and Mahler through which symphonic music and song are woven. In the first half, Mozart's enduring vocal works "Exsultate jubilate" and "Voi avete un cor fedele" sandwich his Symphony In D Major, music from the opera 'La Finta Giardiniere'.

Mozart was a hero to Mahler -it is reported that he uttered Mozart's name on his deathbed- and after the interval the orchestra perform Mahler's Symphony No. 4, incorporating a childlike vision of heaven, sung, as with the Mozart, by soprano Carolyn Sampson. "There is just no music on earth that can compare to ours" are words from Des Knaben Wunderhorn which Mahler sets in the final movement of his intimate and emotionally far-reaching orchestral statement.

Landmark: Waverley

Today perhaps, Brand Britain is showing its age, but once upon a time it was nothing less than one of the most dynamic political projects in the world. In a Free Thinking Landmark on Walter Scott's Waverley, Rana Mitter reflects on the writer and the books which helped the British like the idea of Britain.

Joining Rana in discussion: the writer, Jenni Calder who has recently adapted 'Waverley' for a modern audience; the poet and literary historian, Robert Crawford, who is interested in the originality and reception of Scott's writing and its affect on the imagination; and Andrew Lincoln, an English literature scholar, who has explored Scott as a forward-looking thinker, one who evoked patriotism in the Unionist cause.

You can find more programmes in the BBC #LoveToRead campaign http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04b5zz8/members
And hear more over the #LovetoRead weekend 5-6 November.
As an acclaimed romantic poet, beloved of Byron, then a best-selling novelist, envied by Jane Austen, Sir Walter Scott wrote into existence many of the myths and legends we still re-tell and he used this past to examine and explore the political problems of his own day. Waverley' appeared in 1814 when the Napoleonic Wars had not yet drawn to a close -- and the events the novel describes, the 1745, (when Charles Edward Stuart and his army rocked the stability of a still youthful Anglo-Scottish political Union) were as close in time as the Second World War now is to us. In 'Waverley', 'Rob Roy', 'Red Gauntlet' and 'Ivanhoe', Scott conjured up heroic pasts - not just for Scotland, but for England too - romantic highlanders like Rob Roy on the one hand, the anglo-saxon Robin of the Greenwood on the other. The Waverley novels instilled in their readers a great sense of national pride along with the belief that the two countries, now politically mature, their internal struggles behind them, really could and would be stronger together. In the by-going he conjured up a portrait of the British as an effortlessly multicultural people with deep roots who were now uniquely qualified to take on the world.

Presenter: Rana Mitter

Guests: Robert Crawford: University of St Andrews, 'Bannockburns: Scottish Independence and the Literary Imagination 1314-2014'

The Book that Changed Me, Tacita Dean

The video artist Tacita Dean describes how "Fires" by Marguerite Yourcenar changed her life and art. She discovered the book of prose poems as an undergraduate. "Somehow, her pithy and uncompromising language appealed to me, and my own love tragedy," she says. Yourcenar's work helped her find her voice as a feminist, writer and film-maker. "She gave a female voice to my passionate and romantic younger self who was trying to find an artistic context for the desire I had to reach out and touch the classical past."

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b080xy0v)
Friday - Sarah Walker with Debbie Horsfield

9am
My favourite... Scarlatti sonatas. This week Sarah shares her favourite examples of Domenico Scarlatti's quixotic pieces for keyboard. Written principally for the entertainment of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families, Scarlatti deploys myriad virtuosic techniques to create sonatas that can be stately, scampering or thoughtful. Sarah showcases sonatas displaying these qualities, and more, in performances by pianists and harpsichordists including Yevgeny Sudbin and Andreas Staier.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: can you remember the television show or film that featured this piece of classical music?

10am
Sarah's guest is the theatre and television writer Debbie Horsfield. Debbie recently adapted Winston Graham's Poldark for BBC One. The hit adaptation, starring Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark, won the Radio Times Audience Award at this year's BAFTAs, and a third series has just been commissioned. Debbie started her career working for Trevor Nunn at the Royal Shakespeare Company, going on to become the resident writer at the Liverpool Playhouse. Her other television writing credits include The Riff Raff Element and Cutting It, which both earned her BAFTA Best Drama Series award nominations, as well as True Dare Kiss and All The Small Things. Debbie talks about her writing, and about heading to the Cornish cliffs to research Poldark, and shares a selection of her favourite classical music, including works by Bizet and Brahms, as well as Anne Dudley's soundtrack to Poldark.

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.

Music in Time: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on Mozart's Piano Concerto in A major, K414, as Sarah explores the influence of the church calendar on concert performances during the 18th-century.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are Collegium Musicum 90. One of the UK's leading baroque orchestras, Collegium Musicum 90 was founded by the violinist, and former leader of the English Concert, Simon Standage, and the late conductor Richard Hickox, taking its name from the musical ensembles and societies prevalent in the 17th and 18th centuries. The orchestra has recorded a wide variety of music from the baroque and early classical period, appearing in Europe and British music festivals, including the BBC Proms. Sarah showcases a selection of their recordings including a Mass by Haydn, concertos by Vivaldi and Albinoni, and overtures and suites by Thomas Arne and Telemann.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b080xygq)
Meredith Monk (1942-), Codifying Meredith Monk

Meredith Monk talks about the challenges of allowing her music to be written down and published. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Meredith Monk has been described as one of America's coolest composers. She is also a singer, director, choreographer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Monk's singular voice has been the central component in the work she has created over a trajectory spanning more than fifty years. As a pioneer in extended vocal technique and a composer of vocal and instrumental music, she has developed distinct sound worlds that have been described as "a beguiling repertoire of aviary microtones, robust yodels, and dusky, low-range chanting" and also as "a peerless mixture of otherworldly and human." Her music is identifiable as distinctly Meredith Monk, and has historically provoked strong reactions from audiences and critics alike. Now in her seventies Monk still tours performing her own works, and it was in Cologne where Donald Macleod caught up with her for Composer of the Week, to discuss her remarkable life and unique music.

Meredith Monk's music is unique. A distinctive sound world often using extended vocal techniques from sighs to whoops. Her music is not easy to write down, but in 2000 Monk allowed some of her works to be published. She discusses with Donald Macleod how this is not an easy process, and in one particular work of hers which lasts a couple of minutes only, it took two nearly years to write it down. Another area Monk has been exploring since 2003, is composing more instrumental music starting with an orchestral commission from Michael Tilson Thomas. In more recent years she has received honorary doctorates, been inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, named Composer of the Year by Musical America, and in 2015 she was honoured with the award of the National Medal of the Arts from President Obama. Yet for all her success, she says that composing music is still as difficult as it ever was.

The Book that Changed Me, Sir Richard Eyre

Film and theatre director Sir Richard Eyre describes how he was inspired by "The People's War" by Angus Calder. This social history of the Second World War relives the experience of ordinary citizens during the conflict: "their endurance and patience and their cowardice, complaints, and selfishness, as much as their heroism and humanity." It provided Eyre with a vision - albeit unfulfilled - of social justice, which was in sight during the social revolution of wartime. "So I return to this book, this litany of courage and misery and endurance and hardship - the only book I return to constantly and obsessively - for solace."
Producer: Smita Patel.
