SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b082k797)
How will the arts respond to Trump?

Donald Trump's cultural credentials, Barrie Kosky's The Nose, and a brief guide Indian classical music. With Tom Service.

Trump - The Opera?

Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election is being cast as a revolutionary moment in politics. Viewed as a hero by his supporters, and a disaster by his detractors, Trump is one of the most divisive figures to occupy the Oval Office. So will his presidency spark a new era of creative protest – or support - among artists and musicians?

“To my knowledge he’s never contributed a dime to a cultural institution”. The veteran US cultural critic, John Rockwell, gives Tom Service his views on what a Trump presidency might mean for arts and culture. While the president-elect has referenced Steve Reich’s work in one of his books, he has never appeared to be part of the philanthropic gala circuit that donates large sums to the arts in America.

Drawing on decades of experience as a cultural observer, Rockwell outlines how he believes pop music will respond rapidly to Trump as his promises become policy – with experimental and classical music registering their own protests at a more “glacial” pace.

On The Nose: opera according to Barrie Kosky

Following his production of Shostakovich’s The Nose at Covent Garden, the controversial Australian opera director describes how shock tactics and radical ideas are helping opera to flourish – and how he fears a new cultural conservatism could hold the art form back.

“The more idiosyncratic and iconoclastic and opera house can be, and the more it can link up in a unique way with its local audience, the more successful it is,” says Kosky, who is Artistic Director at the Komische Oper in Berlin. In a robust defence of his approach to his work, he points to the 700,000 tickets sold every year by the opera houses in the German capital – and rejects assertions that opera is in crisis.

Kosky insists that creative musicians, directors and producers must have freedom to interpret works, and challenges critics who demand that operas be staged as historical artefacts. “If you don’t want to be surprised… with a piece of music you know, then stay at home,” Kosky suggests. “We’re trying to create something that’s living.”

Hindustani and Carnatic – unpacking Indian classical music

Two of the top voices in Indian classical music, Shubha Mudgal and Aruna Shairam, reveal how their different traditions – the northern Hindustani and southern Carnatic – overlap, diverge, and share common roots.

Music Matters turns its attention to Indian classical styles following the 70th anniversary of the launch of Radio 3, which helped introduce the music to a wider audience in the UK.

Joined by the Hindustani tabla master Aneesh Pradhan during their visit to London to appear at the Darbar festival, the musicians guide Tom through ragas, rhythm and the improvisational elements that distinguish their respective traditions, offering a window onto their music, its history and its contemporary performance practice.

Mozart's Cosi fan tutte

Presented by Mary King. A recording made last month of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte in a new production by Jan Philipp Gloger, who set this piquant comedy about fidelity, disguise and the true nature of love as theatre within theatre. Young Ferrando and Guglielmo take the bet set by Don Alfonso who believes their lovers, Fiordiligi and Dorabella, are 'like all women' and will not be faithful if better suitors come their way. Semyon Bychkov conducts the orchestra and chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, with a cast of young singers mostly making their house debuts. The soprano Corinne Waters is Fiordiligi; the mezzo-soprano Angela Brower, Dorabella; the tenor Daniel Behle, Ferrando and the baritone Alessio Arduini, Guglielmo. Don Alfonso is sung by the baritone Johannes-Martin Kraenzle, while Despina is the soprano Sabina Puertolas.

SAT 22:00 Between the Ears (b082k79m)
Tomorrow Never Knew

Fifty years after the release of The Beatles' Revolver album, their music still casts a long shadow over the people of Liverpool.

For many growing up and working in Liverpool during the 'Fifties and 'Sixties, The Beatles have cast a long shadow. They breathed the same air, inhabited the same streets and felt the same promise of a new, post-war culture. The story of the 'Fab Four' has been told and told again. But for a young couple like Gwen and her ex-soldier husband Ken, and young people like Barrie (a biology teacher who taught sex education to thousands of 'Scousers' before moving to Manhattan) and Keith (the son of a bookie's runner and Cavern member), the experiences of the 'Sixties formed the basis of their lives - and all played out to a Beatles soundtrack.

The album Revolver, which confirmed The Beatles' transition from young lovable moptops to maturer somewhat troubled artists, is now fifty years old. In a collage of music, voices and location atmospheres, Tomorrow Never Knew accompanies Gwen, Barrie and Keith through the intervening years and, simultaneously, retraces the band's origins to an encounter at a fete in a field next to St Peter's Church, Woolton, with some of those who were there.

Geoff Dyer

Geoff Dyer is a writer who joyously defies categorisation. The winner of many literary prizes, and frequently described as one of the most original writers of his generation, he surprises at every turn with his blending of fiction and non-fiction, and with his subjects, which range through travel, film, sex, photography, war, romance - and music.

The book that cemented his reputation, in 1991, was about jazz - with the memorable title But Beautiful. It's a series of fictional vignettes of musicians from the great age of American jazz, including Bud Powell, Chet Baker and Thelonious Monk.

Geoff talks to Michael Berkeley about how his life-long passion for jazz has taken him on a musical journey from Miles Davis, to Keith Jarrett playing Bach, and Indian classical music - and he explains why Beethoven's Late Quartets appeal so strongly to a lover of jazz.

Improvisation

Tom Service considers the art of musical improvisation. When pianist Lenny Tristano first recorded free improvisations in 1949, his record company didn't want to release them. Today, Free Improvisation is a well-established genre. But can improvising ever be "free"? Tom discusses with musician and writer David Toop and improvising bassist Joëlle Leandre.
Improvisation is a fundamental part of music-making - it even has a place in Western classical music, such as the freely invented cadenza in a piano concerto. Other musical traditions are fundamentally based in improvising, such as the classical Indian tradition, and jazz. In the 1950s, Free Improvisation developed from experiments in extending jazz, as an attempt to make music spontaneously with no reference to any style or tradition. David Toop has written a book about improvising, and Joelle Leandre has had a long career as a free improviser, playing with a wide variety of musicians around the world. But, she says, "we cannot be free...".

New Generation Thinkers

Part of Radio 3's focus on fresh ideas this week and our partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council helping academics turn their research into radio, two New Generation Thinkers present documentaries on their special area of interest.

1. Euphemism and Eroticism in Scottish Gaelic Songs

Dr Peter Mackay takes us on a romp through the titillating, bawdy and sometimes downright filthy Scottish Gaelic songs. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, there was a tendency to clean up Gaelic poetry and censor the undesirable elements, often with religious motivation. But even the most celebrated Gaelic poets wrote verse that was exuberantly and excessively rude and there is an oral tradition of obscene and euphemistic songs. Peter teases out the suggestive references taking us from the Isle of Skye through the rabble-rousing ceilidh house to the work of Scotland's most famous poet, Robert Burns.

Dr Peter Mackay is Lecturer in English at the University of St Andrews
Producer: Clare Walker

2. Reappraising Nollekens

Joseph Nollekens was one of the most revered and prolific sculptors of the eighteenth century. His monuments, portraits busts and sculptures capture the leading politicians and celebrities of his age, inlcuding Dr Johnson, William Pitt the Younger and Charles James Fox and he died enormously rich. But when a disgruntled assistant wrote a malicious biography claiming he was a miser, an eccentric and a fool, Nollekens' reputation was badly tarnished. Dr Danielle Thom sets out to rescue Nollekens from relative obscurity and restore him to his rightful place in the history of English sculpture.

Dr Danielle Thom is curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum, specialising in 18th century art.
Producer: Julia Johnson.

BBC Philharmonic Somme Commemoration

On July 1 1916, around 650 Salford men, mostly in the Salford Pals battalion of the Lancashire Fusiliers, died on the first day of one of Britain's most brutal battles.
Recorded on July 1 this year at a special concert at Salford University to commemorate the "Pals" and the start of the Battle of Somme, the world premiere of Steve Davismoon's "God's Own, Caught in No Man's Land" was presented alongside music written by composers who fought in the First World War. Using special field recordings from places that the Salford Pals would have known well, (both at home in Salford, and from the places they went to be trained to fight), popular songs that they would have sung together and also texts by poet Winifred Letts, written in 1916, Steve Davismoon intended to create "an aural bridge of remembrance between us in Salford today that extends back to those hundreds of Salford families whose world was shattered".

Monday - Rob Cowan with Clare Teal

9am
My favourite...Schubert chamber works. Throughout the week Rob focuses on Schubert's smaller-scale chamber works, from sonatinas for violin and piano that Schubert wrote when he was a teenager, to music from his final years. These shorter pieces are often remarkable essays, the Notturno for Piano Trio as sublime as the great slow movement of the String Quintet in C and his urgent Quartettsatz, a tantalising hint of a great string quartet that might have been, but never was.

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

10.00am
Especially for the week of the London Jazz Festival, Rob's guest is the celebrated jazz singer and broadcaster Clare Teal. Three-times winner of British Jazz Singer of the Year, Clare performs regularly at the world-renowned Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, and has appeared at Glastonbury and the BBC Proms. Her acclaimed albums include the chart-topping Don't Talk, And So It Goes and Hey Ho. Clare's most recent album Twelve O'Clock Tales, recorded with the Hallé orchestra, was released earlier this year. She is also a familiar voice on radio, as the host of Big Band Special and more recently with her own weekly show presenting the best in big band, swing and jazz. Clare will be talking about her singing career and sharing a selection of her favourite classical music with Rob every day at 10am.

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
Rob places Music in Time, with a Classical work by an eight-year-old Mozart, composed on a family trip to London in 1764. A plaque in Westminster marks the house where the Mozart family was staying, and where young Wolfgang wrote his Symphony No.1. This lively work gives a glimpse of his future potential, and introduces a musical motto that Mozart reused, among other places, in his final symphony, the Jupiter.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the Spanish soprano Victoria de los Angeles. De los Angeles was one of the best-loved singers of the post-war period, eloquent in opera and song, and a charming stage presence, with a sweet, immediately distinctive voice. Rob selects his highlights from her wide recorded repertoire. There's music from her native Spain by Falla and Granados, a song-cycle by Berlioz, and arias from operas by Rossini and Massenet, as well as an acclaimed recording of Puccini's La Bohème with Jussi Björling, in which de los Angeles recreates the role of Mimi, the part in which she made her operatic debut at the age of 18.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03h3nx0)
Bill Evans (1929-1980), Bill Evans Works with Miles Davis

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Family was very important to the composer Bill Evans. His earliest musical influences came from his mother, and his most famous work, Waltz for Debbie, was inspired by his niece. Evans won a scholarship to Southeastern Louisiana University, and around the same period he composed his earliest known composition, 'Very Early'. After a brief spell in the army, and by the time he was twenty-six, Evans recorded an album called New Jazz Conceptions, which included his new work, 'No Cover, No Minimum'. Bill Evans was starting to make quite a name for himself, and then came the call from Miles Davis offering Evans the chance of performing alongside the legendary trumpeter and his ensemble.

François-Xavier Roth (conductor)

Of all the Requiems, Berlioz's epic Grande messe des morts is among the largest. It involves a gargantuan ensemble, including huge choir, 10 timpanists and 4 offstage brass bands, and unleashes an incredible range of expression with masterful theatricality.

This breathtaking, roof-raising masterwork was written to commemorate the fallen of the 1830 French Revolution and was a great success at its 1837 premiere. It was performed in the similarly epic Royal Albert Hall with the massed choral forces of the BBC Symphony and Crouch End Festival Choruses, the London Philharmonic Choir, tenor Toby Spence and conductor François-Xavier Roth on Remembrance Sunday.

Recorded on 13th November at the Royal Albert Hall, London.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b082kd7n)
The Mabinogion Revisited, An Introduction to the Mabinogion

Professor Sioned Davies, Chair of Welsh at Cardiff University and author of the first new translation of The Mabinogion for thirty years, reflects on the ancient tales.

Internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology, the tales in the four 'Branches' which make up the Mabinogion reveal an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests. In this series of The Essay, five Welsh writers present a different story or theme from the Mabinogion across five nights.

They tell tales that stretch far beyond the boundaries of contemporary Wales, and although well known in Wales today, these stories are not familiar to those in other parts of Britain. They bring us Celtic mythology, a history of the Island of Britain seen through the eyes of medieval Wales. They also include the first appearance in literature of King Arthur. There is enchantment and shape-shifting, conflict, peacemaking, love and betrayal: stories of such colour and wonderment that even those who are not familiar with them will find universal appeal. There's Gwydion the shape-shifter, who can create a woman out of flowers; Math the magician, whose feet must lie in the lap of a virgin; hanging a pregnant mouse and hunting a magical boar. Dragons, witches and giants live alongside kings and heroes, and quests of honour, revenge and love are set against the backdrop of a country struggling to retain its independence. A wife conjured out of flowers is punished for unfaithfulness by being turned into an owl. Arthur and his knights chase a magical wild boar and its piglets from Ireland, across south Wales to Cornwall, and a prince changes places with the king of the underworld for a year.

By weaving contemporary themes into these ancient tales and culminating in a reading from the texts, these essays re-invest the tales with the power of performance they originally commanded.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Clare Teal

9am
My favourite...Schubert chamber works. Throughout the week Rob focuses on Schubert's smaller-scale chamber works, from sonatinas for violin and piano that Schubert wrote when he was a teenager, to music from his final years. These shorter pieces are often remarkable essays, the Notturno for Piano Trio as sublime as the great slow movement of the String Quintet in C and his urgent Quartettsatz, a tantalising hint of a great string quartet that might have been, but never was.

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

10.00am
Especially for the week of the London Jazz Festival, Rob's guest is the celebrated jazz singer and broadcaster Clare Teal. Three-times winner of British Jazz Singer of the Year, Clare performs regularly at the world-renowned Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, and has appeared at Glastonbury and the BBC Proms. Her acclaimed albums include the chart topping Don't Talk, And So It Goes and Hey Ho. Clare's most recent album Twelve O'Clock Tales, recorded with the Hallé orchestra, was released earlier this year. She is also a familiar voice on radio, as the host of Big Band Special and more recently with her own weekly show presenting the best in big band, swing and jazz. Clare will be talking about her singing career and sharing a selection of her favourite classical music with Rob every day at 10am.

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
Rob places Music in Time, with a work from the Modern period dedicated "to the memory of an angel." Alban Berg composed his Violin Concerto in 1935, following the death of Manon, the young daughter of Alma Mahler and the architect Walter Gropius. It's an intense, elegiac work, which combines modern serial techniques with a more traditional, tonal style, including a quotation from a Bach chorale. The concerto has become one of Berg's best-loved works; it was also his last.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the Spanish soprano Victoria de los Angeles. De los Angeles was one of the best-loved singers of the post-war period, eloquent in opera and song, and a charming stage presence, with a sweet, immediately distinctive voice. Rob selects his highlights from her wide recorded repertoire. There's music from her native Spain by Falla and Granados, a song-cycle by Berlioz, and arias from operas by Rossini and Massenet, as well as an acclaimed recording of Puccini's La Bohème with Jussi Björling, in which de los Angeles recreates the role of Mimi, the part in which she made her operatic debut at the age of 18.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03h3pw5)
Bill Evans (1929-1980), Bill Evans Records with Cannonball

Bill Evans performs alongside Cannonball Adderley

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Performing alongside Miles Davis had brought Bill Evans to a much wider audience. Evans soon left the band though, and pursued his own career making a new album called Everybody Digs Bill Evans, which included a new work Peace Piece. Towards the end of the 1950s, things were looking good for Evans, although his addiction to heroin was starting to take its toll. He'd agreed to work with Davis again on the album, Kind of Blue, which included a work by Evans called Blue in Green, although Davis claimed it as his own. By the time Evans was thirty, he was well known, popular, and was soon to form his own historic trio including Paul Motian and Scott LaFaro. They gelled together perfectly, and went into studio to record works such as Autumn Leaves, and Evans's Peri's Scope. This pinnacle of perfection for Evans, though, was short-lived; bassist Scott LaFaro died in a traffic accident shortly afterwards.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b082kvq4)
Indian classical music from Leicester

As part of Radio 3's 70th season, Leicester's Asian community celebrates the pioneering work by the Third Programme in promoting Indian classical music in the 1950s and 60s, long before The Beatles and Ravi Shankar made it fashionable. At that time, the performers had to come from India: this concert celebrates the UK's home-grown talent, with musicians born or based in this country.

Live from Leicester's Peepul Centre in Leicester, Lopa Kothari introduces a recital by sarod virtuoso Soumik Datta, with Roopa Panesar playing sitar and Shahbaz Hussain on tabla. In the interval, Viram Jasani, director of the Asian Music Circuit, recalls those early broadcasts on the Third Programme. Radio 3's 70th season celebrates seven decades of pioneering music and culture since the founding of the Third Programme.

Soumik Datta was born in Bombay, and brought up in the UK, attending Harrow School - but he learned the sarod during extended stays with his guru, Calcutta-based Pandit Buddhadev Das Gupta. Soumik describes the sarod as 'a 19-stringed fretless instrument with a nomadic history spanning ancient Afghanistan, colonial India and modern day global downloads' - and his performing life frequently takes him beyond Indian classical styles, with collaborations with Jay-Z, Beyoncé and others.

Leicester-based Roopa Panesar is one of Europe's finest young sitar players. She started learning the instrument at the age of seven, and has performed throughout Europe and America, appeared with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and recorded music for the film 'West is West'.

Shahbaz Hussain was born in Rochdale, into a musical family with strong roots in Pakistan. He travelled to the Indian subcontinent to study and was a pupil of the legendary Alla Rakha Khan, Ravi Shankar's regular accompanist. His talent has been acclaimed worldwide, and in 2008 Pakistan gave him the 'Son of Lahore' award.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b082kwsl)
Being Human Debate at Fact, Liverpool: Man and Animals

French anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss famously said that 'animals are good to think with'. Rana Mitter with Sarah Peverley, Charles Forsdick, Alasdair Cochrane, Eveline de Wolf and an audience at FACT, Liverpool debate robots, humans and animals.

The broadcast will preview upcoming events organised by the University of Liverpool as part of their Being Human festival programme and is part of a week of programmes on Radio 3 focusing on new research and the UK wide festival supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

From a best friend to a tasty snack or something we must carefully husband to a threat we must eradicate, we humans think about animals in lots of ways. But how has our thinking about animals changed over time, and what does that tell us about our shifting attitudes toward the natural world and our place in it? Hear the views of an archaeologist who studies how we've lived with animals throughout human history, a medievalist who studies bestiaries and mermaids, a French scholar who explores the history of the 'human zoo', and a political theorist who argues that we should extend human rights to animals.

Producer: Luke Mulhall

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b082kzdh)
The Mabinogion Revisited, James Hawes

Five Welsh writers reflect on the greatest literary treasures of the medieval world, The Mabinogion. Internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology, the tales in the four 'Branches' which make up the Mabinogion reveal an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests. By weaving contemporary themes into these ancient tales, these essays re-invest the tales with the power of performance they originally commanded.

Author James Hawes discusses what the Mabinogion can teach us about storytelling and explores the parallels between these ancient tales and our modern-day superhero films.

Bill Evans (1929-1980), Bill Evans Chased by Loan Sharks

Donald Macleod explores Bill Evans's life during the early sixties

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Evans was now frequently in and out of studio recordings. Quite simply he needed the money. He'd borrowed money from loan sharks who were now threatening to break his fingers. One of these financially driven projects included his work Interplay, which on top of his usual trio line-up, also included trumpet and guitar. Evans's need for money was partly due to his drugs habit and, at times, Evans found himself making albums he just wasn't happy with. One work he was pleased with was Fudgesicle Built for Four, referring to a popular chocolate ice-cream from the time. There were also some interesting collaborations for Evans during this period, including the saxophonist Stan Getz, the vocalist Monica Zetterlund who Evans had met on tour in Sweden, the orchestral leader and arranger Claus Ogerman, and also a collaboration with himself using multi-track techniques in his number, NYC's No Lark.

Being Human: Vernon Lee, Lying, Coma

New Generation Thinkers Shahidha Bari and Laurence Scott present a programme looking at new research into supernatural fiction writer Vernon Lee with Francesco Ventrella. Lee used the phrase "iron curtain" and declared herself a "cosmopolitan from her birth, without any single national tie or sympathy'. They also debate what it means to lie, examine the life of communist informer Harvey Matusow with Doug Haynes, and look at new scientific research into the way consistent lying can change behaviour. Plus, Jenny Kitzinger on the gulf between popular ideas of 'coma' and the realities of such states.

Part of a week of programmes on BBC Radio 3 exploring new academic research.

Being Human festival of the humanities runs from 17-25 Nov 2016 at universities across the UK. It is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) which works with Radio 3 on the New Generation Thinkers scheme to find academics who can turn their research into radio.

Producer: Robyn Read.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b082kzdp)
The Mabinogion Revisited, Gwyneth Lewis on the Tale of Blodeuwedd

The Mabinogion Revisited: Series of arts programmesThe Mabinogion is to Welsh mythology what the Iliad and the Odyssey are to Greek mythology. So why aren't they more well known in these islands? Gwyneth Lewis ponders the powers and the limits of the imagination through her unique re-interpretation of the tale of Blodeuwedd.

Internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology, the tales in the four 'Branches' which make up the Mabinogion reveal an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests. They tell tales that stretch far beyond the boundaries of contemporary Wales, and although well known in Wales today, these stories are not familiar to those in other parts of Britain. They bring us Celtic mythology, a history of the Island of Britain seen through the eyes of medieval Wales. They also include the first appearance in literature of King Arthur. There is enchantment and shape-shifting, conflict, peacemaking, love and betrayal: stories of such colour and wonderment that even those who are not familiar with them will find universal appeal. There's Gwydion the shape-shifter, who can create a woman out of flowers; Math the magician whose feet must lie in the lap of a virgin; of hanging a pregnant mouse and hunting a magical boar. Dragons, witches, and giants live alongside kings and heroes, and quests of honour, revenge, and love are set against the backdrop of a country struggling to retain its independence. A wife conjured out of flowers is punished for unfaithfulness by being turned into an owl, Arthur and his knights chase a magical wild boar and its piglets from Ireland, across south Wales to Cornwall, and a prince changes places with the king of the underworld for a year.

By weaving contemporary themes into these ancient tales, these essays re-invest the tales with the power of performance they originally commanded.

Thursday - Rob Cowan with Clare Teal

9am
My favourite...Schubert chamber works. Throughout the week Rob focuses on Schubert's smaller-scale chamber works, from sonatinas for violin and piano that Schubert wrote when he was a teenager, to music from his final years. These shorter pieces are often remarkable essays, the Notturno for Piano Trio as sublime as the great slow movement of the String Quintet in C and his urgent Quartettsatz, a tantalising hint of a great string quartet that might have been, but never was.

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

10.00am
Especially for the week of the London Jazz Festival, Rob's guest is the celebrated jazz singer and broadcaster Clare Teal. Three-times winner of British Jazz Singer of the Year, Clare performs regularly at the world-renowned Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, and has appeared at Glastonbury and the BBC Proms. Her acclaimed albums include the chart topping Don't Talk, And So It Goes and Hey Ho. Clare's most recent album Twelve O'Clock Tales, recorded with the Hallé orchestra, was released earlier this year. She is also a familiar voice on radio, as the host of Big Band Special and more recently with her own weekly show presenting the best in big band, swing and jazz. Clare will be talking about her singing career and sharing a selection of her favourite classical music with Rob every day at 10am.

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
Rob places Music in Time, going back to the Renaissance to sample one of the most celebrated settings of the Penitential Psalms of David. Orlande de Lassus, the Netherlandish composer, published his set of seven psalms in 1584; the sixth, De profundis clamavi, for 5 voices, is considered one of the highpoints of Renaissance polyphony.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the Spanish soprano Victoria de los Angeles. De los Angeles was one of the best-loved singers of the post-war period, eloquent in opera and song, and a charming stage presence, with a sweet, immediately distinctive voice. Rob selects his highlights from her wide recorded repertoire. There's music from her native Spain by Falla and Granados, a song-cycle by Berlioz, and arias from operas by Rossini and Massenet, as well as an acclaimed recording of Puccini's La Bohème with Jussi Björling, in which de los Angeles recreates the role of Mimi, the part in which she made her operatic debut at the age of 18.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b03h3pw9)
Bill Evans (1929-1980), Bill Evans and Helen Keane

Bill Evans gets a new manager

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Helen Keane had come into Bill Evans's life as his manager and, later on, also producer. Evans went on to dedicate two works to Keane, including One for Helen, and also Song for Helen. Evan's trio, what with touring and other pressures, was frequently changing in personnel. Soon, the bassist Eddie Gomez had joined the trio and he recorded a number of works with the Evans, including G Waltz, and Comrade Conrad. Evans kept up his collaborations with other musicians during the late nineteen-sixties, including the guitarist Jim Hall, recording a duo performance of Turn Out the Stars. Evans also sometimes invited musicians to expand his trio line-up to a quartet, including flautist Jeremy Steig who performed in Evans's composition, Time Out for Chris. This period was exceptionally busy, with frequent tours abroad and many studio recordings. One album won Evans two Grammy awards which featured his number, Sugar Plum.

THU 14:00 Afternoon on 3 (b082kvhh)
Thursday Opera Matinee, Barber - Vanessa

Samuel Barber was almost 48 years old when his first opera, Vanessa, was produced by New York's Metropolitan Opera Company on 23rd January, 1958. Already established as a master of song, operatic composers such as Puccini, Strauss and Berg arguably inform the work. However, the language is recognisably Barber's own and the orchestral writing is richly atmospheric.

The opera is set in an unspecified northern country, around 1905. The libretto by Gian Carlo Menotti, Barber's partner, tells of how Vanessa, her mother (the Old Baroness) and niece (Erika) have waited 20 years for the return of Vanessa's lover, Anatol. When he arrives, it transpires that he is the man's son, also named Anatol, and that the lover is dead. Nevertheless, Vanessa and the younger Anatol are drawn to each other, leaving Erika - seduced by Anatol on his first night at the house - pregnant and suicidal. When Vanessa and Anatol depart for Paris, Erika settles down to wait and, as her aunt had done before, gives orders for the house to be closed up.

Six years after its premiere Barber reduced the opera from four to three acts. He ran the original first two acts together and cut a coloratura aria for Vanessa herself. It is this more compact version that we'll hear from Wexford this afternoon.

Being Human: What the Archives Reveal

Matthew Sweet visits little known locations in London to meet researchers drawing on archives of the past to cast new light on the present.
The Cross Bones Graveyard in Southwark was used in the Middle Ages to bury sex workers and others living on the fringes of respectable society. We visit the site with Sondra Hausner, an anthropologist of religion who's studied modern practices for memorializing the women buried at the site.
Vicky Iglikowski and Rowena Hillel are researchers at the National Archives at Kew investigating records that shed light on LGBT history in the Capital. We'll leaf through the records to see what they've uncovered.
New Generation Thinker Naomi Paxton and her colleague Ailsa Grant Ferguson have identified a moment when Shakespeare, radical politics, and the roots of the National Theatre all converged, in a building in Bloomsbury used to house Anzac soldiers during the First World War.
And we join Peter Guillery, editor of the Survey of London, to investigate the work of this ongoing project to document the streets of London in all their complexity.
Part of a week of programmes on BBC Radio 3 focusing on new research. The Being Human Festival which takes place at universities across the UK from November 17th - 25th will feature events linked to these research projects. Both this and the New Generation Thinkers scheme are supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The Mabinogion Revisited, Jon Gower on the Role of Nature

The Mabinogion is to Welsh mythology what the Iliad and the Odyssey are to Greek mythology. So why aren't they more well known in these islands? Writer Jon Gower explores what the Mabinogion stories can teach us about the role of nature in the Celtic mind.

Internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology, the tales in the four 'Branches' which make up the Mabinogion reveal an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests. They tell tales that stretch far beyond the boundaries of contemporary Wales, and although well known in Wales today, these stories are not familiar to those in other parts of Britain. They bring us Celtic mythology, a history of the Island of Britain seen through the eyes of medieval Wales. They also include the first appearance in literature of King Arthur.

Dragons, witches, and giants live alongside kings and heroes, and quests of honour, revenge, and love are set against the backdrop of a country struggling to retain its independence. A wife conjured out of flowers is punished for unfaithfulness by being turned into an owl, Arthur and his knights chase a magical wild boar and its piglets from Ireland, across south Wales to Cornwall, and a prince changes places with the king of the underworld for a year.

Late Junction Sessions, Angharad Davies, Tom Arthurs and James Yorkston

Fiona Talkington presents a collaboration session from Angharad Davies, Tom Arthurs and James Yorkston. Never having worked together before, the trio spent the day at the BBC's Maida Vale studio to create something special, combining each of their disciplines.

Welsh violinist Angharad Davies works across improvisation and contemporary classical composition often preparing her violin with objects or materials to extend its sonic possibilities. Trumpeter Tom Arthurs was one of the first BBC New Generation Artists for jazz from 2008-2010. Now a resident of Berlin, he leads two international trios with luminaries from the European jazz scene. An author, songwriter and lyricist from Fife, James Yorkston has had a long relationship with Domino Records where he's collaborated with Four Tet, Bert Jansch and most recently released an acclaimed album under the name Yorkston / Thorne / Khan.

Plus, an Armenian song on a 78 rpm record Fiona picked up recently in Leiden, Holland and new music from folk duo Alasdair Roberts and James Green.

Bill Evans (1929-1980), Bill Evans Leaves the Stage

Bill Evans plays his last gig.

He was called the Poet of the Piano, and the Chopin of Jazz, this week Donald Macleod delves into the life and music of Bill Evans. Although Evans started off in the world of classical music, it wasn't long before he got the Jazz bug. His classical training wasn't wasted though, for it went on to influence the way he performed for the rest of his life. His touch at the piano became legendary, and his preferred ensemble for performing his own compositions, and those by others, was the Jazz trio combining piano, bass and drums. Evans came to prominence when invited to work alongside Miles Davis and, in time, Evans would go on to perform with the likes of Tony Bennett, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, Stan Getz and Monica Zetterlund.

Evans was starting to look quite ill. He needed to have all his teeth removed, which was done in the UK, between appearances at Ronnie Scotts, as it was cheaper. Another tour took Evans to Japan where he was given a film-star welcome. For that tour he had brought with him new repertoire, including the virtuosic Twelve Tone Tune Two. By the mid seventies, Evans had a son called Evan, later dedicating a work to him called Letter to Evan. Another huge event in his his family circumstances was the news that his brother Harry had committed suicide. Harry never knew that Evans had written a work for him called We Will Meet Again. By the late seventies Evans's health was in decline; he was suffering from hepatitis. Touring was making increasing demands upon Evans, including twenty-one European cities in twenty-four days. By nineteen-eighty, with his face gaunt, and his wrists and fingers bloated, Evans was too exhausted to perform, and a few days later he died.

It's hard to understand the doubt that settled in Brahms's mind ahead of the first performance of his fourth symphony. Now firmly positioned as a concert hall essential; audiences across the globe remain grateful that it lived beyond its premiere.
Elgar's poetic and passionate Cello Concerto gives no indication of any such worries; soulful and passionate from the opening bars, this is music of deep emotion that has an unfailing ability to connect.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b082kzf0)
The Mabinogion Revisited, Horatio Clare on Lludd and Llefelys

The Mabinogion is to Welsh mythology what the Iliad and the Odyssey are to Greek mythology. So why aren't they more well known in these islands?Horatio Clare reflects on the 12th-century tale of Lludd and Llefelys from the Mabinogion and discusses its timely themes of immigration, conflict, borders and exile.

Internationally recognized as the world's finest arc of Celtic mythology, the tales in the four 'Branches' which make up the Mabinogion reveal an ancient world of gods and monsters, heroes, kings and quests. They tell tales that stretch far beyond the boundaries of contemporary Wales, and although well known in Wales today, these stories are not familiar to those in other parts of Britain. They bring us Celtic mythology, a history of the Island of Britain seen through the eyes of medieval Wales. They also include the first appearance in literature of King Arthur. There is enchantment and shape-shifting, conflict, peacemaking, love and betrayal: stories of such colour and wonderment that even those who are not familiar with them will find universal appeal. There's Gwydion the shape-shifter, who can create a woman out of flowers; Math the magician whose feet must lie in the lap of a virgin; of hanging a pregnant mouse and hunting a magical boar. Dragons, witches, and giants live alongside kings and heroes, and quests of honour, revenge, and love are set against the backdrop of a country struggling to retain its independence. A wife conjured out of flowers is punished for unfaithfulness by being turned into an owl, Arthur and his knights chase a magical wild boar and its piglets from Ireland, across south Wales to Cornwall, and a prince changes places with the king of the underworld for a year.

By weaving contemporary themes into these ancient tales, these essays re-invest the tales with the power of performance they originally commanded.

FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b082kzf2)
