SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b084vmqp)
Christa Ludwig: from song to silence

Out of the wreckage of WW2 Germany, mezzo-soprano Christa Ludwig forged a stellar career singing opera and lieder. With Tom Service.

Singing for survival
Mezzo-soprano Christa Ludwig began her career singing to American GIs amid the rubble of WW2 Berlin. It was the start of a glittering five-decade journey as one of the most feted singers of her generation. In a candid interview with Tom Service, Ludwig charts her trajectory as a star of opera and lieder, and explains why she now rarely listens to music.

Speaking at her home in Vienna, Ludwig outlines the attributes she believes singers need to succeed, and explains how she came to perform soprano roles - despite always being “afraid with the high notes”.

"Erotic"
Ludwig describes the “erotic” nature of working conductors such as Herbert von Karajan and Leonard Bernstein, as well as reflecting on her disputes with opera director Wieland Wagner.

She talks affectionately about her mother – also a singer – whose influence wove a thread through her career, and the difference between singing in the emotional heat of opera and the cool consideration of lieder.

Silence
Now in her late 80s, Ludwig explains how she “loves silence”, rarely listens to music, and only occasionally turns to Bach, or “the last three sonatas by Beethoven or Schubert – no opera”.

And although she “would never be a singer in my next life”, Ludwig describes how she misses the experience of standing on stage with the “huge sound of the orchestra coming over you”.

Funeral Song
Stravinsky wrote his Funeral Song at the age of 26 to mark the death of his teacher, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The 12-minute piece was performed once, in 1909, at a memorial concert. Then it vanished.

Thought lost forever in the confusion of the 1917 revolutions - or the civil war that followed – Stravinsky’s unpublished manuscript was re-discovered among thousands of dusty pages languishing in the archives of the St Petersburg Conservatory.

The work was given its first performance in 108 years at the Mariinsky Theatre earlier this month at a concert heard by Stravinsky expert Stephen Walsh. He explains how the piece fits into the composer’s early output as Music Matters presents recorded extracts of the Funeral Song.

SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b084vmqr)
Mark Monahan

Dance critic Mark Monahan goes on a whistle-stop tour through the first 100 years of the ballet as we know it today, looking at the ground-breaking works that took cities such as Paris and St Petersburg by storm. He traces the history of ballets such as The Nutcracker and Swan Lake which were - surprisingly - both resounding flops when Tchaikovsky premiered them, only being rescued later by the dance-maker Marius Petipa. And he looks at the enormous influence of Sergei Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes, beginning with Mikhail Fokine's 1907 ballet Chopiniana, leading to famous scores by Stravinsky and Ravel.

SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b084vmqt)
In the Blood

Matthew Sweet with music for films that explore ideas of heredity and genetics in the week of the launch of the Irish-British thriller "I Am Not A Serial Killer".

In Billy O'Brien's new film, based on Dan Wells's novel, a fifteen year boy, a diagnosed social-path, lives in fear that he is fated to become a serial-killer. The music for the film is by Adrian Johnston who has given us scores for "Becoming Jane" and the 2008 big screen version of "Brideshead Revisited" as well as music for some of Stephen Poliakoff's film dramas.

The programme also includes music from "The Elephant Man"; "The Island of Dr Moreau"; "Splice"; "Jurassic Park"; "Never Let Me Go"; "The Boys From Brazil"; "Gattaca" and "Creation". The Classic Score of the Week is Ernest Gold's music for "Inherit The Wind.

Shirley Collins

Shirley Collins talks to Michael Berkeley about her musical passions and her sixty-year career in folk music. Much praised for her clear, unaffected singing voice, she has won worldwide acclaim as a pivotal figure in the English folk revival of the 1960s and 70s, not only as a performer, but also as a curator, a saviour of a rich tradition of music which might otherwise have been lost. She tells Michael about her Sussex childhood, her passion for Baroque music, and the pleasure she?s finding in singing again after a gap of more than thirty years. And we hear Shirley singing with her late sister and collaborator Dolly. Her musical choices include Handel, Boyce, Praetorius and two moving field recordings she helped to make - songs from Mississippi Fred McDowell and a gypsy child in 1960s Sussex.

Background Music

Tom tunes into the background, exploring what background music really is; telling the surprising story of the Muzak corporation, and discovering that there's a range of background functions that music can have: from the 'furniture music' of Erik Satie to the Stimulus Progression albums used in Lyndon B Johnson's White House. Daniel Barenboim, Julian Lloyd-Webber and Brian Eno help explain the power of and problems with background music.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b084vqg6)
Whatever Happened to the Avant-Garde?

Paul Morley has always been drawn to the avant-garde, but he never expected to find it in leafy Hampstead, preferred location for the well-heeled intellectuals of London.

Perhaps it's because he feels there is something special and important, even glamorous, about belonging to such a club. He also loves the idea of someone being so disappointed, frustrated or furious with their surroundings that they use imagination to create a new reality.

But where can you go to find the avant-garde today? Is it even possible to be avant-garde at the moment? When car adverts claim the avant-garde for themselves, is there room in this day and age for the sort of disturbance and shock of the old style avant-garde? Can Paul Morley himself be avant-garde in this programme?

Starting in the unlikely location of Hampstead - home to both Roland Penrose and Lee Miller, and the emergent ICA - Morley goes on an avant garde tour with art historian Anne Massey, tours Erno Goldfinger's modernist masterpiece, 2 Willow Road, and is awed into reverence by its sleek, utilitarian elegance, before crossing town to meet visionary architect Peter Salter.

He delves into the archives of Jasia Reichardt, and husband Nick Wadley, relishing tales of a truly prescient ICA 1968 exhibition, "Cybernetic Serendipity", which presaged the possibilities of computers and art in the future.

Paul toys with the concept of avant-garde fashion with former head of Central St Martin's, Willie Walters; gossips about improvisation with jazz pianist Steve Beresford; Gregor Muir recalls the shock of the Saatchi new, whilst poised between jobs at the ICA and the Tate; Simon Munnery comedian adds a surreal touch, and ex-Gang of Four member, Jon King, currently working for VICE Productions, analyses what in the world can shock us today. And is the DNA in our stars or in our genes? Dr Gilly Forrester, evolutionary neuropsychologist, throws some evolutionary bombshells into the debate.

Paul Morley ponders the death, or not, of the avant-garde

SUN 23:30 Recital (b084vqgg)
London Jazz Festival

Hear exciting experimental pianist and composer Francesco Tristano in collaboration with the BBC Concert Orchestra under the baton of its Principal Conductor Keith Lockhart. Causing as much of a stir in the club scene as in classical concert halls, Tristano works across the electronic and Baroque, dance music and the avant-garde and is a committed disregarder of limits and rigid practices in music.

This concert, recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival, opens with a virtuoso performance of Bach's Concerto in D minor, BWV 1052 followed by Tristano's own solo study 'La franciscana', based on Balkan composite rhythm, which has become a cult classic in his repertoire and a crowd favourite - always requested in shows.

The concert closes with the UK premiere of Tristano's own largely improvised 'free piano concert' Island Nation, which makes several references to electronic dance music, while being written in the symphonic idiom.

My favourite... Bach for Advent. Rob explores the range of music that Bach wrote for performance during the season of Advent. From cantatas to chorale preludes, Rob chooses a selection of his favourite choruses, arias and organ works.

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

10am
Rob's guest is the actor, comedian, writer and broadcaster, Sir Tony Robinson. Well known for his cunning plans as Baldrick in the hit series Blackadder and for writing and starring in Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, Sir Tony also presented Time Team for twenty years and has written a series of history books for children. Sir Tony shares some of his favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including Fauré's Dolly Suite, which he remembers as the theme tune to Listen with Mother, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Handel's Messiah, which he sang as a schoolboy.

10.30am
Music: Medieval
Rob places Music in Time. This week, Rob journeys back to the Medieval period to explore music composed for the Feast of St Stephen, commemorating the first Christian martyr.

11am
Rob's artist of the week is the conductor Charles Munch. Born in Strasbourg when it was still annexed to the German Empire, Munch gained a unique insight into both the French and German repertoire by serving as concertmaster under Wilhelm Fürtwangler, and Bruno Walter, and from conducting French orchestras including the Lamoureux and Orchestre Symphonique de Paris. As a conductor, Munch brought flair, panache and imagination to a whole host of varied masterpieces including Berlioz's Romeo and Juliet and Stravinsky's Jeu de Cartes, as well as symphonies by Dvorak and Mendelssohn, all of which are featured during the week.

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle, Honoured by the King of France

King Henry IV invites Francesca Caccini and her family to France to perform at court.

Presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn't necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini was born in 1587. Her father Giulio was a composer and her mother a singer, both employed at the Medici court in Florence. Many pupils would come to the Caccini household to be taught by Giulio, and when he recognised his daughter's talents, he made sure Francesca was educated well. Francesca Caccini's first performance before court as a singer was in 1600, in her father's opera The Abduction of Cephalus. Giulio's music was put in the shade by another opera performed just a few days earlier, Euridice by Jacopo Peri. These celebrations at the Medici court were for the forthcoming wedding of Henry IV of France, to Marie de Medici. They evidently went well, for the Caccini family soon received an invitation to go to perform in France for the King.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b06kb0f8)
The Further Realm, The Further Realm: Episode 1

Novelist Andrew Martin has long been interested in ghosts and their stories, and he gives them much thought over five essays.

1. In his first essay, he asks if he actually believes in ghosts. Well, he certainly relishes the 'fear' and 'beauty' that comes from ghostly narratives. 'Have you ever seen a ghost?' is the first question he must address, and of course there is no clear cut answer to this...

Sir Tony shares some of his favourite pieces of classical music throughout the week, including Fauré's Dolly Suite, which he remembers as the theme tune to Listen with Mother, Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor and Handel's Messiah, which he sang as a schoolboy.

Born in Strasbourg when it was still annexed to the German Empire, Munch gained a unique insight into both the French and German repertoire by serving as concertmaster under Wilhelm Fürtwangler, and Bruno Walter, and from conducting French orchestras including the Lamoureux and Orchestre Symphonique de Paris. As a conductor, Munch brought flair, panache and imagination to a whole host of varied masterpieces including Berlioz's Romeo and Juliet and Stravinsky's Jeu de Cartes, as well as symphonies by Dvorak and Mendelssohn, all of which are featured during the week.

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle, Employed by the Grand Duchess

Francesca Caccini receives her first appointment at the Medici Court, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn't necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini and her family were well received at the French court and King Henry IV declared that Francesca was the best singer in all of France. An offer was made to Giulio Caccini for Francesca and her sister to remain in France, but their father was keen that the entire family should return to Florence. Once back in Italy Giulio wasted no time in promoting the family's success in France, in order to secure Francesca's future. By 1607 she received her first official appointment as a musician to the Medici court which was then largely controlled by the Grand Duchess, Christine de Lorraine. Upon Francesca's appointment, the Grand Duchess arranged a marriage for her new employee to a singer called Giovanni Battista Signorini. Caccini's contract to the Medici gave her many responsibilities, including performing as a singer and as an instrumentalist both at court and for church services, composing new music and preparing it for performances, as well as teaching music to some of the Medici children.

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle, Caccini Goes into Print

Francesca Caccini publishes her first and only collection of music, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn't necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

In 1612 Francesca Caccini's fame as a musician was spreading far and wide, and requests were made to the Medici court to borrow her for short periods. These requests were denied and, in a bid to retain Caccini's services in Florence, the Medici raised her salary making her the highest paid musician at the Florentine court. By 1614 investment was made locally in developing printing opportunities, and composers soon rushed to bring out their works in print including Francesca's father Giulio, and also Marco da Gagliano. A few years later in 1618, Francesca Caccini brought out her own collection of music in print. She intended this to be the first of many, but her Medici employers forbade her to publish again. Caccini was contracted as a musician, a servant, and she was to do as she was told.

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle, Music as Propaganda

Francesca Caccini's music is used as a political weapon by the Medici, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn't necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini's court obligations in Florence were highly demanding. By 1619 she was writing to the court officials complaining that her recent workload had been very great with teaching, performing and composing. Not only was she busy working, but in 1622 Caccini also became a mother. Just a few years later Caccini would receive a commission to write a stage work, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina, that would immortalise her in the future as the first women to compose an opera. Although the work may not be an opera, it was a work of sheer spectacle and was intended to demonstrate the power of the Medici women at that time. This stage work became very popular in its day, and was even translated into Polish.

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Santtu-Matias Rouvali, conductor

Young Finnish conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali directs the BBC Symphony Orchestra in two Russian masterworks, Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture, and Prokofiev's Symphony No 5. Prokofiev said that his Fifth Symphony depicted 'the greatness of the human spirit'. It's a gripping climax to a concert that begins with Tchaikovsky's star-crossed romance, and features Kaija Saariaho's ravishing True Fire, performed by its dedicatee, Gerald Finley.
Saariaho's music combines intense emotion with a shimmering, visionary sonic beauty, and this setting of poetry by Emerson and Seamus Heaney was created with the intelligence and burnished tone of Finley's singing very much in mind. The results are both surprising, and exquisitely lovely: 'This is a profound, important work', declared the LA Times at last year's world premiere.

Late Junction Sessions, Jerusalem and Other Stories

Fiona Talkington presents a collaboration session between Matthew Kaner, Ross Sutherland and the Golden Age of Steam.

A group of artists from different backgrounds meet for the first time in the BBC Maida Vale studios to create a unique collaboration. Radio 3 composer in residence Matthew Kaner will write a new piece of music based on texts by Ross Sutherland. Ross re-writes classic stories and poems, including in this case Jerusalem, using an Oulipian writing technique in which every noun and verb gets nudged a certain number of places along in the dictionary, creating new versions of familiar texts. The Golden Age of Steam is an improvising ensemble with James Allsop on reeds, Kit Downes on keyboards, Ruth Goller bass, Alex Bonney electronics and cornet and Tim Giles drums. Matthew Kaner is the Radio 3 composer in residence as part of the station's 70th anniversary celebrations of the Third Programme.

Also featured in the programme, the sonic delights of Randall Thompson's Alleluia, British folk by The Furrow Collective and Balkan influenced bassist Toggi Jónsson.

Francesca Caccini and Her Circle, A Lifetime of Service

Francesca Caccini is denied her freedom by the Grand Duchess Christine de Lorraine, presented by Donald Macleod.

Francesca Caccini has been hailed as the first female composer to write an opera. However this isn't necessarily true. The work in question, La Liberazione di Ruggiero dall'isola d'Alcina, was written for the theatre and is almost entirely sung, but academics now believe that this is not an opera. What we do know is that Francesca Caccini was the daughter, sister, wife and mother of a family of singers, and was one of the most prolific composers of her time. She was employed at the Medici court in Florence in the early seventeenth century, and rose to become the highest paid musician on the Medici payroll. This week Donald Macleod explores the life and music of Francesca Caccini and her circle, such as her father Giulio Caccini, and other composers including Jacopo Peri, Lorenzo Allegri, and Marco da Gagliano.

Francesca Caccini's first husband died in 1626, which left her future and the future of her daughter in a precarious state. She decided to marry again, and this time to a man of property, Tommaso Rafaelli, a minor nobleman of Lucca. Although there was a further child, this time a son, the marriage only lasted a short time as her second husband died in 1630. Francesca Caccini was now a women of some property, and she lobbied the Medici court to relinquish any rights of custody to her daughter Margherita. As Francesca was employed by the Medici when her daughter was born, with the death of Caccini's second husband, the supervision of Margherita reverted to the Medici court. Caccini's appeal was accepted. She and her family soon returned to Florence to work for the ailing Grand Duchess Christine de Lorraine. However, Francesca's second petition to the Grand Duchess to be made a lady of the court, was refused. Caccini remained a servant until her death.

Tallis Scholars
Peter Philips director

Sandwiched between Victoria's two grandest double-choir compositions, the Tallis Scholars' programme features Tallis's seven-voice Christmas Mass "Puer natus". Its three surviving movements are separated by masterpieces of this seasonal repertoire, the two by Sheppard involving the specialist high treble voice. The modern pieces by Pärt, Britten and Tavener have long been recognised as classics.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b084vwzx)
The Eccentric Verb

Ian's guests on the Eccentric Verb include the writer David Bramwell who has co-written 'The Odditorium' (Brewer's) with Jo Keeling. The book celebrates the often unsung 'tricksters, eccentrics, deviants and inventors whose obsessions changed the world'.

The poet won the T.S Eliot prize in 2012 for her last collection, 'Stag's Leap'. She published her latest collection earlier this year, 'Odes'.

Heather Phillipson presents the last new commission in Radio 3's 70th anniversary season 'Three Score and Ten', which features new original poems from up and coming writers.

The writer Kevin Jackson examines literary eccentricity. His latest book is 'Constellation of Genius: Modernism Year One'. (Windmill)

Presenter: Ian McMillan
Producer: Faith Lawrence.
