SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b081sxgp)
Vienna: City of Music

Tom Service travels to Vienna with historian David Wyn Jones to explore the unfolding musical culture of a city with a long-standing reputation as the capital of the classical music world.

Musical heritage

Boasting three opera houses and two major concert halls, the City of Music is home to one of the most venerable of international orchestras, the Vienna Philharmonic. Revisiting three centuries of intrigues, upheavals and conflicts, Tom and David explore the intersection between music, empire, culture and politics in the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries.

Mahler manuscript

Tom and David visit the Hofburgkapelle - where Bruckner was organist and Schubert sang in the choir as a boy - the Theater an der Wien, and the Musikverein, tracing the city’s cultural heritage from Joseph Fux to Gustav Mahler.

Modern times

Returning to the 21st Century, music in Vienna is viewed relative to the current political and social landscape, with the help of organist Martin Haselbock at the Hofburgkapelle, Theater an der Wien’s Head of Artistic Administration Jochen Breiholz, the Chairman of the Vienna Philharmonic Andreas Grossbauer, and the Head of Ethnomusicology at the University of Performing Arts, Dr Ursula Hemetek, amongst others.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b081sxh0)
Bellini's Norma

Ivan Hewett presents a new production of Bellini's Norma from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden's first for almost 30 years. The Druid priestess Norma is in love with the leader of the occupying Roman forces, Pollione, and has secretly borne two children by him. When she discovers that he has transferred his affections to another priestess, Adalgisa, it begins a downward spiral leading to her self-sacrifice. Bellini's grand setting contains a very personal story of a woman struggling to combine her own desires with society's expectations, and shows the power of religion as a force for good, and for destruction. In La Fura dels Baus's production, directed by Alex Olle and recorded last month, Bulgarian soprano Sonya Yoncheva leads a stellar cast, with Joseph Calleja as the unfaithful Pollione. Ivan Hewett is joined in the box by Italian opera expert Roger Parker to discuss the history and significance of Bellini's work, and also talks to Associate Director Valentina Carrasco, conductor Antonio Pappano and members of the cast.

Norma ..... Sonya Yoncheva (Soprano)
Pollione ..... Joseph Calleja (Tenor)
Adalgisa ..... Sonia Ganassi (Contralto)
Oroveso ..... Brindley Sherratt (Bass)

SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b081tmgj)
Requiem

The innovative composer and electronic music pioneer Matthew Herbert physically deconstructs the instruments of a string ensemble while they play one of Beethoven's late string quartets, considered by many to be the epitome of chamber music. In a new commission, with an original performance by the Tippett Quartet, Beethoven's String Quartet in F major Op.135 is lovingly rendered until it starts to decay, collapse and become unrecognisable. The music unfolds with the sounds of the quartet being slowly replaced with the sound of snapping strings, instruments being sawn up, stamped on or burnt. In the end, all we hear are the instruments in a broken and destroyed state, in a piece which raises questions about our perceptions of acoustic instruments, in an age of instant digital reproduction.

Matthew Herbert's Requiem is jointly commissioned by BBC Radio 3, Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, and Centre National de Création Musicale (GMEM) in Marseille, where the sounds of broken instruments were recorded. Part of Radio 3's 70th season, celebrating seven decades of pioneering music and culture since the founding of the Third Programme.

James Jolly

This week, as well as playing an extended section of Act 3 from yesterday's Building A Library choice of Stravinsky's Rake's Progress, James Jolly showcases Benjamin Britten as composer, conductor and pianist. The morning's young artist is conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali, in works by Sibelius, and the French Impressionism collection explores Ravel's Miroirs.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b081t4d8)
Therese Oulton

Thérèse Oulton burst on to the scene in 1984, fresh out of art school, with a highly-praised solo exhibition, which was followed three years later by a nomination for the Turner Prize.

From the very beginning she has challenged the orthodoxies of both abstract and figurative painting. And her recent highly detailed landscapes find beauty even in a damaged, fragile earth, evoking both familiarity and strangeness.

Her work is highly prized by collectors and is in major public collections around the world, including the Tate and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Thérèse talks to Michael Berkeley about her passion for Wagner, the physicality of music and painting, and the pleasure of listening to live music. Her music choices include Britten, Shostakovich, Wagner, Brecht and Mary Lou Williams - inspired by the time she spent waitressing at Ronnie Scott's as an art student.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b081t4vp)
Cover Versions

The Listening Service explores the art of the cover version: what happens when one composer 'covers' the art of another? Why was it common practice for baroque composers to recycle their own work and 'borrow' from their colleagues on a regular basis? And what of musical traditions like Folk and Jazz where key pieces or 'standards' are covered by multiple artists? Tom Service talks to baroque expert Berta Joncas and folk star Eliza Carthy to get some answers.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b081t4vt)
Let Her Speak

With Hillary Clinton in the last throes of the American presidential campaign and literally thousands of speeches, Emily Maitlis considers how women have been and are making themselves heard in public; commandeering the ancient art of rhetoric, for millennia the business of men.

As Mary Beard tell us, women were banned from speaking in Ancient times: In Homer's Odyssey, Odysseus's wife Penelope, was contributing usefully to public discussion in her husband's absence until her "wet behind the ears" son, Telemachus, tells her to stop immediately. "Speaking is the business of men," he declares. With Fiona Shaw, Patsy Rodenburg and Professor Emma Smith, we'll hear how women are characterised by the ancient Greeks and by Shakespeare and what it is to 'inhabit' these voices.

Excluded from the theatre in Britain, women were heard in more eerie circumstances; uttering, wailing and pronouncing at the gallows, the one place where everyone was free to have a last word.

Ruling with God's will, Elizabeth I was a brilliant orator who made one of the most frequently quoted women's speeches on the back of a rhetorical denial of her femininity: "...I know I have but the body of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart of a king, and of a king of England, too..."

Emily asks Lissa Muscatine, Hillary Clinton's Chief of Speechwriting for more than twenty years, if the first female presidential candidate needs to address her femininity head on. With speechwriter Martha Leyton, we test Aristotle's rhetorical principles, logos, pathos and ethos.

We'll explore how the female voice is heard and how it is perceived and why women feel they have to adapt their voice to sound 'correct'. Do we actually know what a woman's public speaking voice is? Can women speak without criticism of being "shrill"? Can they speak effectively without being considered not feminine; more an androgyne like Hortensia?

We learn about the vocal folds, the importance of free breath and the constraints of being corseted or wearing high heels.

And we'll imagine Margaret Fell, the early Quaker who wrote Womens Speaking Justified, along with the exhortations of Mary Astell. We'll hear early recordings of the arguing and entreating, persuading and encouraging voices of women through the twentieth century, around the world, increasingly heard.

Contributors also include Professors Richard Toye, Valerie Hazan, Ruth Perry and Michael Graves.

Produced by Kate Bland. A Cast Iron Radio production for BBC Radio 3.

King Charles III

After a lifetime of waiting, Charles ascends the throne. A future of power. But how to rule? Mike Bartlett's 'future history' play won the 2015 Olivier Award for Best New Play. The production, directed by Rupert Goold, premiered at the Almeida Theatre before moving to the West End in a co-production with Sonia Friedman Productions and Stuart Thompson Productions.

This "bracingly provocative and outrageously entertaining new play" (The Independent) explores the people underneath the crowns, the unwritten rules of our democracy, and the conscience of Britain's most famous family.

KING CHARLES III was first produced by the Almeida Theatre and subsequently co-produced at the Wyndham's Theatre in the West End of London by Sonia Friedman Productions and Stuart Thompson Productions in association with Lee Dean & Charles Diamond and Tulchin Bartner Productions. The sound designer for the theatre production was Paul Arditti.

Mike Bartlett's radio play NOT TALKING won both the Imison and Tinniswood Awards in 2007. He has been Writer-In-Residence at the both the National Theatre and The Royal Court Theatre. His play LOVE, LOVE, LOVE won Best New Play in the 2011 Theatre Awards UK; COCK won an Olivier Award in 2010 for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre, as did BULL in 2015. As well as winning the Olivier Award for Best New Play, KING CHARLES III won the Critics' Circle Award for Best Play of 2014.

MON 09:00 Essential Classics (b081t7zz)
Monday - Sarah Walker with Oliver Jeffers

9am
My favourite... Spanish dances. As nationalist feelings emerged during the revolutions of 19th century Europe, composers turned to the forms and styles of their native countries to emphasise their cultural heritage. In Spain composers such as Granados and Falla led the way, creating a style of music that became immensely popular across the continent. Sarah features examples by those two composers, and by followers of the style including Moritz Moszkowski, Mikhail Glinka and Maurice Ravel.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge and identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Sarah's guest is the artist and illustrator, Oliver Jeffers. Oliver's work ranges from figurative painting and installations to picture book making. His books, which include The Incredible Book Eating Boy and Once Upon An Alphabet, have been translated into over thirty languages, and The Day The Crayons Quit, and its sequel The Day The Crayons Came Home, were both number one New York Times bestsellers. Oliver has won awards including The New York Times Best Illustrated Books, Smarties Award, The Red House Book Award, British Book Design Award, and The Blue Peter Book of the Year. Working in collaboration with Studio AKA, his second book Lost and Found was developed into an animated short film that has received over sixty awards, including a BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film. Throughout the week Oliver talks about his art and illustrations and shares a selection of his favourite pieces of classical music, including works by Bizet, Mascagni and Beethoven.

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 the Romantic period and Franz Schubert's lieder, for which he developed a new type of piano accompaniment.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is one of the world's leading viola players, Tabea Zimmermann, whose playing is celebrated for its breadth, suppleness, and singing tone. These qualities are demonstrated throughout the week, in music ranging from 20th-century masterpieces that Zimmermann has championed, including the Viola Concerto by Bartok and the Viola Sonata by Rebecca Clarke, to more intimate works, such as an elegy by Glazunov, a suite for solo viola by Max Reger, and Berlioz's Harold in Italy - a lyrical meditation on Lord Byron's Childe Harold.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b081t801)
Schubert - Swansong, The Beginning of the End

Donald Macleod explores the remarkable and prolific final year of Schubert's life, during which he battled failing health to compose a succession of masterpieces.

There are few composers whose genius is so fertile that you can make a whole week of programmes from a single year of their life. Yet even by Franz Schubert's remarkably prolific standards, his last 12 months were utterly extraordinary. As his body entered terminal decline through a mixture of alcoholism and syphilis, masterpiece upon masterpiece poured from his pen: the String Quintet in C, the delirious last three piano sonatas, his Mass in E flat, the last collection of lieder, posthumously titled "Swansong" - and many more besides. This week Donald Macleod takes us through the last year of Schubert's tragically foreshortened life and death at the age of only 31.

Donald Macleod begins the week with Schubert's last - typically boozy - New Year's Eve party, of 1827/8, before introducing his last collection of songs, cobbled together and titled "Swansong" by his publisher after the composer's death. We'll hear excerpt from the set, sung by some of the greatest contemporary interpreters of Schubert's work, all week.

Letters to Writers, Dear Geoffrey Chaucer...

'Dear Geoffrey Chaucer, Can I call you Geoff..?'

In a series of imaginary correspondences, novelist Ian Sansom writes letters to five of literary history's most celebrated figures and interrogates them about their art.

'Oh Agatha Christie, Please - do tell - what is the secret of your success?'

As his correspondence unfolds, queries are raised, jealousies revealed, concerns aired.

'Dear Virginia Woolf, Please accept my apologies. For a long time I thought you represented everything that's wrong with literature...'

How exactly does George Eliot do it? Why is it so difficult? And what's that Jonathan Swift just called him?

Producer: Conor Garrett.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Oliver Jeffers

9am
My favourite... Spanish dances. As nationalist feelings emerged during the revolutions of 19th century Europe, composers turned to the forms and styles of their native countries to emphasise their cultural heritage. In Spain composers such as Granados and Falla led the way, creating a style of music that became immensely popular across the continent. Sarah features examples by those two composers, and by followers of the style including Moritz Moszkowski, Mikhail Glinka and Maurice Ravel.

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 artist and illustrator, Oliver Jeffers. Oliver's work ranges from figurative painting and installations to picture book making. His books, which include The Incredible Book Eating Boy and Once Upon An Alphabet, have been translated into over thirty languages, and The Day The Crayons Quit, and its sequel The Day The Crayons Came Home, were both number one New York Times bestsellers. Oliver has won awards including The New York Times Best Illustrated Books, Smarties Award, The Red House Book Award, British Book Design Award, and The Blue Peter Book of the Year. Working in collaboration with Studio AKA, his second book Lost and Found was developed into an animated short film that has received over sixty awards, including a BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film. Throughout the week Oliver talks about his art and illustrations and shares a selection of his favourite pieces of classical music, including works by Bizet, Mascagni and Beethoven.

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 it's the turn of the Modern period, and Leos Janacek's use of folk rhythms in his wind sextet, Mladi (Youth).

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is one of the world's leading viola players, Tabea Zimmermann, whose playing is celebrated for its breadth, suppleness, and singing tone. These qualities are demonstrated throughout the week, in music ranging from 20th-century masterpieces that Zimmermann has championed, including the Viola Concerto by Bartok and the Viola Sonata by Rebecca Clarke, to more intimate works, such as an elegy by Glazunov, a suite for solo viola by Max Reger, and Berlioz's Harold in Italy - a lyrical meditation on Lord Byron's Childe Harold.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b081tjb2)
Schubert - Swansong, Foreboding and Fantasy

Donald Macleod continues his exploration of the extraordinary last year of Schubert's life. Featuring excerpts all week from his final song collection Schwanengesang (Swansong).

There are few composers whose genius is so fertile that you can make a whole week of programmes from a single year of their life. Yet even by Franz Schubert's remarkably prolific standards, his last 12 months were utterly extraordinary. As his body entered terminal decline through a mixture of alcoholism and syphilis, masterpiece upon masterpiece poured from his pen: the String Quintet in C, the delirious last three piano sonatas, his Mass in E Flat, the last collection of lieder, posthumously titled "Swansong" - and many more besides. This week Donald Macleod takes us through the last year of Schubert's tragically foreshortened life and death at the age of only 31.

In early 1828, as Schubert's close friends become variously engaged and married, he sinks deeper into loneliness and depression. Donald Macleod explores Schubert's brooding personality, and the ongoing debate regarding his sexuality.

Highlights from three concerts recorded at this year's Lammermuir Festival in East Lothian. The Dutch violinist Lisa Fershtman teams up with Roman Rabinovich, winner of the Arthur Rubinstein Piano Master Competition in 2008, and today's broadcast features two works from that concert. The short and quixotic violin sonata in G minor was Debussy's final work and yet is full of joy and colour. Beethoven's Violin Sonata No 10 in G includes a set of variations for the fourth movement to play to the strengths of the violinist Pierre Rode, who premiered the work. In complete contrast, Andreas Borregaard performs the sparse and atmospheric Air by the Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen.

BBC Philharmonic - Smetana, Tchaikovsky, Dvorak

From Leeds Town Hall
Presented by Adam Tomlinson

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Antony Hermus, in music by Smetana and Dvorak. They are joined by BBC New Generation Artist Pavel Kolesnikov for Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto.

Smetana: Bartered Bride; Overture, Polka, Furiant, and Dance of the Comedians

Dvorak: Symphony No.7

BBC Philharmonic
Antony Hermus (conductor)

Leeds Town Hall hosts the BBC Philharmonic for a programme rich in Czech melody, national dance and colour. Smetana's enthusiasm for the story of Czech village life that he paints in his opera 'The Bartered Bride' bubbles over in the characterful orchestral music that starts the concert. Dvorak's Seventh Symphony abounds in lyricism and his own nationalist spirit shines through in the restless Scherzo. Written for the Philharmonic Society in London Dvorak said he intended the new piece "to be capable of stirring the world". BBC New Generation Artist Pavel Kolesnikov joins the orchestra for Tchaikovsky's iconic First Piano Concerto, a piece which looks forward to his ballet scores and blends the lyricism of popular and folk melody with sheer, startling virtuosity.

TUE 21:55 Three Score and Ten (b081tkm3)
Sean O'Brien and Mick Imlah

Ian McMillan continues with poets of the personal and political. Sean O'Brien and Mick Imlah read their poems from broadcasts in the 1980s.

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.

In a series of imaginary correspondences, novelist Ian Sansom writes letters to five of literary history's most celebrated figures and interrogates them about their art.

'Oh Agatha Christie, Please - do tell - what is the secret of your success?'

As his correspondence unfolds, queries are raised, jealousies revealed, concerns aired.

'Dear Virginia Woolf, Please accept my apologies. For a long time I thought you represented everything that's wrong with literature...'

Schubert - Swansong, Dona Nobis Pacem

Donald Macleod continues his journey through Franz Schubert's final year of life - and the towering late masterpieces he composed.

There are few composers whose genius is so fertile that you can make a whole week of programmes from a single year of their life. Yet even by Franz Schubert's remarkably prolific standards, his last 12 months were utterly extraordinary. As his body entered terminal decline through a mixture of alcoholism and syphilis, masterpiece upon masterpiece poured from his pen: the String Quintet in C, the delirious last three piano sonatas, his Mass in E flat, the last collection of lieder, posthumously titled "Swansong" - and many more besides. This week Donald Macleod takes us through the last year of Schubert's tragically foreshortened life and death at the age of only 31.

As spring turns to summer in 1828, Schubert's attention is taken first with the touring violin virtuoso Paganini, and then his own deep Christian faith, as he composes the last - and possibly finest - setting of the Mass.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Oliver Jeffers

9am
My favourite... Spanish dances. As nationalist feelings emerged during the revolutions of 19th century Europe, composers turned to the forms and styles of their native countries to emphasise their cultural heritage. In Spain composers such as Granados and Falla led the way, creating a style of music that became immensely popular across the continent. Sarah features examples by those two composers, and by followers of the style including Moritz Moszkowski, Mikhail Glinka and Maurice Ravel.

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

10am
Sarah's guest is the artist and illustrator, Oliver Jeffers. Oliver's work ranges from figurative painting and installations to picture book making. His books, which include The Incredible Book Eating Boy and Once Upon An Alphabet, have been translated into over thirty languages, and The Day The Crayons Quit, and its sequel The Day The Crayons Came Home, were both number one New York Times bestsellers. Oliver has won awards including The New York Times Best Illustrated Books, Smarties Award, The Red House Book Award, British Book Design Award, and The Blue Peter Book of the Year. Working in collaboration with Studio AKA, his second book Lost and Found was developed into an animated short film that has received over sixty awards, including a BAFTA for Best Animated Short Film. Throughout the week Oliver talks about his art and illustrations and shares a selection of his favourite pieces of classical music, including works by Bizet, Mascagni and Beethoven.

Music in Time: Baroque
Sarah place Music in Time, going back to the Baroque period to discover the chalumeau, the forerunner of the clarinet.

11am
Sarah's artist of the week is one of the world's leading viola players, Tabea Zimmermann, whose playing is celebrated for its breadth, suppleness, and singing tone. These qualities are demonstrated throughout the week, in music ranging from 20th-century masterpieces that Zimmermann has championed, including the Viola Concerto by Bartok and the Viola Sonata by Rebecca Clarke, to more intimate works, such as an elegy by Glazunov, a suite for solo viola by Max Reger, and Berlioz's Harold in Italy - a lyrical meditation on Lord Byron's Childe Harold.

Schubert - Swansong, Franz is Unwell

Donald Macleod explores music Schubert wrote in his very final weeks - a period that included some of his greatest works, including three piano sonatas and the String Quintet in C.

There are few composers whose genius is so fertile that you can make a whole week of programmes from a single year of their life. Yet even by Franz Schubert's remarkably prolific standards, his last 12 months were utterly extraordinary. As his body entered terminal decline through a mixture of alcoholism and syphilis, masterpiece upon masterpiece poured from his pen: the String Quintet in C, the delirious last three piano sonatas, his Mass in E flat, the last collection of lieder, posthumously titled "Swansong" - and many more besides. This week Donald Macleod takes us through the last year of Schubert's tragically foreshortened life and death at the age of only 31.

Donald Macleod explores the murky question of what actually killed Schubert. He also introduces music composed in the very final weeks of Schubert's short life - including two of his remarkable late trio of piano sonatas played by the acclaimed Schubert interpreter Mitsuko Uchida.

Schubert - Swansong, Passing into Legend

There are few composers whose genius is so fertile that you can make a whole week of programmes from a single year of their life. Yet even by Franz Schubert's remarkably prolific standards, his last 12 months were utterly extraordinary. As his body entered terminal decline through a mixture of alcoholism and syphilis, masterpiece upon masterpiece poured from his pen: the String Quintet in C, the delirious last three piano sonatas, his Mass in E flat, the last collection of lieder, posthumously titled "Swansong" - and many more besides. This week Donald Macleod takes us through the last year of Schubert's tragically foreshortened life and death at the age of only 31.

Donald Macleod ends this week exploring the final year of Schubert's life by exploring the immediate impact of his death upon 19th century musical circles. As well as completing the sequence of songs from Schubert's final collection, Schwanengesang, he presents a unique, remarkable "rendering" of the composer's incomplete Tenth Symphony by the modern Italian master Luciano Berio.

FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b081tjjw)
Lammermuir Festival 2016, Episode 4

Resident artists at this year's Lammermuir Festival, Lisa Fershtman (violin) with Roman Rabinovich (piano), Andreas Borregaard (accordion) and the Navarra Quartet, perform highlights from their concerts around the villages of East Lothian. Bartok's first Rhapsody integrates the inflections of Hungarian village music strongly into this fiery and expressive work. Dvorak's love songs transformed into short quartet movements, every one a romantic gem, contrast with the deceptive simplicity of Bach's English Suite performed here on the two-manual classical accordion. The programme is rounded off by Lisa Ferschtman, who performed the slow middle movement from Beethoven's 6th Violin Sonata as an encore to her concert.

Bartok: Rhapsody No.1
Lisa Fershtman, violin
Roman Rabinovich, piano

Dvorak: Cypresses Nos 3, 2, 9 & 12

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b081tkvk)
Letters to Writers, Dear Agatha Christie...

'Dear Geoffrey Chaucer, Can I call you Geoff..?'

In a series of imaginary correspondences, novelist Ian Sansom, writes letters to five of literary history's most celebrated figures and interrogates them about their art.

'Oh Agatha Christie, Please - do tell - what is the secret of your success?'

As his correspondence unfolds, queries are raised, jealousies revealed, concerns aired.

'Dear Virginia Woolf, Please accept my apologies. For a long time I thought you represented everything that's wrong with literature...'

How exactly does George Eliot do it? Why is it so difficult? And what's that Jonathan Swift just called him?

Producer: Conor Garrett.
