SAT 12:15 Sean Rafferty at Home (b0858klt)
Lesley Garrett

Sean visits the soprano Lesley Garrett at her home for a cup of tea and to talk about her career and passions.

Lesley is one of the UK's most recognisable sopranos thanks to the breadth of her work: from Monteverdi at Glyndebourne and Mozart at ENO, to The Sound of Music in the West End, contemporary opera, not to mention a side career as a TV presenter.

Brought up in Yorkshire but now based between there and London with her family, her Yorkshire roots are still hugely important to her. She talks to Sean about those roots, her struggles starting out as a singer, and why there need to be more roles for 60-year-old sopranos.

SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b06r41gd)
Krister Henriksson

Actor Krister Henriksson, known to many as rumpled Swedish detective Kurt Wallander, presents a personal selection of music.

In Henning Mankell's novels and subsequent television films Wallander's musical tastes are very much operatic: his dog is even named after the legendary tenor Jussi Björling. Krister, who played the role for over a decade after a long and acclaimed stage career, presents a more varied selection today including works by Sibelius, Nielsen and Arvo Pärt, and performances by some of his favourite Swedish artists including jazz pianist Jan Johansson, singer Monica Zetterlund, and ABBA's own Benny Andersson. Krister also reflects on his home town of Stockholm, his early performances in Peer Gynt, and his experience of working with Ingmar Bergman.

First broadcast in December 2015 as part of Radio 3's Northern Lights season.

Vittorio Grigolo sings the title role in this world of fantasy, as young Hoffmann tells three stories recounting his search for love and his fight against his nemesis, the devil himself, who takes many guises, determined to make him fail. The villains are taken by Thomas Hampson; Olympia, the mechanical doll, is sung by Sofia Fomina; Giulietta, the Venetian courtesan, is Christine Rice; Antonia, the singer, is Sonya Yoncheva, while Nicklausse, the Muse in disguise, is Kate Lindsey. Evelino Pido conducts the orchestra and chorus of the Royal Opera House in this vintage production by John Schlesinger.

SAT 21:15 Between the Ears (b0858nv3)
The Shepherd

Christmas Eve, 1957. Flying home from Germany, a young RAF pilot is alone in the cockpit of his Vampire. Over the North Sea, the radio goes dead...

An innovative adaptation of Frederick Forsyth's haunting classic Christmas tale, read by Luke Thompson and adapted for radio by Amber Barnfather.

Written as a Christmas present, Forsyth's gripping and much-loved ghost story is a moving reflection on loneliness, fear, gratitude and sacrifice.

A binaural soundscape features specially recorded a cappella pieces, improvised sounds and mouth/body percussion by the Saint Martin Singers, conducted by Charles Talbot. It includes symbolic sound effects using Christmas decorations and Vampire aircraft recordings made at the RAF Museum, London.

Luke Thompson's credits include lead roles at Shakespeare's Globe. In 2013, he was nominated for an Ian Charleson award, given annually to an actor under 30 for a performance in a classical play. This is his debut solo piece for BBC radio.

A small, amateur choir, the Saint Martin Singers owe their origin to a few fire watchers at the church of St Martin-in-the-Fields during World War Two who made music together on the quieter nights.

Sound design: David Chilton

Adaptor/Producer: Amber Barnfather

A Goldhawk Essential production for BBC Radio 3.

The morning concludes with Leonard Bernstein's Missa Brevis.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0858ym9)
Archbishop John Sentamu

Dr John Sentamu, Archbishop of York, is a special guest for Christmas Day.

In Private Passions, he talks to Michael Berkeley about being the middle child of thirteen children, in Uganda. His father had a small gramophone and they all learned to sing Handel's Messiah with great gusto. John Sentamu practised as a lawyer and was a judge in the country's High Court by the age of 25, but when Idi Amin came to power the rule of law collapsed. Sentamu was imprisoned and tortured; "it was not so much a prison as a killing field". He heard his friends being shot. He talks movingly about how his Christian faith never wavered during his imprisonment and miraculous escape. He came to Britain in 1974 and trained as a priest, spending most of his career in some of the most deprived areas of London. Dr Sentamu became Bishop for Stepney and then Bishop for Birmingham; he was appointed Archbishop of York in 2005. Poverty and social inequality has always been at the heart of his Christian mission; he strongly believes he has a political role and a duty to speak out in a divided society. He talks too about his involvement in the campaign against knife crime in Birmingham, and being taken blindfolded to visit gang leaders. Dr Sentamu was Adviser to the Stephen Lawrence Judicial Inquiry and he chaired the Damilola Taylor Murder Review.

Archbishop Sentamu reveals the music which has sustained him through an extraordinary and challenging life: Elgar's Cello Concerto, for instance: the Archbishop played the Jacqueline du Pre recording on the hour every hour from 6am to 6pm at York Minster for a week as part of a Vigil of prayers for peace. He introduces music from his local church in Uganda; and the choir of York Minster singing the Archbishop's favourite carol: "Hark the Herald Angels Sing".

The programme ends with Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols, as John Sentamu reflects on the great pleasures of Christmas - including his love of cooking. If all else fails, his children say, he could always open a restaurant. And his signature dish would be - brussels sprouts

From Wigmore Hall, London.

Introduced by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Bach: Cello Suite No. 2 in D minor, BWV.1008
Kodaly: Sonata for Solo Cello Op. 8

The expressive eloquence and extraordinary tonal refinement of cellist Miklos Perenyi's playing have opened hearts and minds to the infinite spiritual dimensions of the works in his broad repertoire.

The Hungarian musician, born in Budapest in 1948, completed his studies with lessons from Pablo Casals and is recognised among today's greatest cellists. He presents the second of Bach's Cello Suites in tandem with a composition that matches it in intensity and invention, Kodaly's Sonata for solo cello.

Producer: Philip Billson

For many around the world, A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, live from the candlelit Chapel of King's College, Cambridge, marks the beginning of Christmas. It is based around nine Bible readings which tell the story of the loving purposes of God. They are interspersed with carols old and new, sung by the world-famous chapel choir who also lead the congregation in traditional Christmas hymns.

The College's Director of Music Stephen Cleobury writes:
The commissioned carol this year is by Michael Berkeley, who has set the mediaeval poem 'This ender night'. The first carol I commissioned (in 1983) was from Michael's father, Lennox, who is represented in this service by his 'I sing of a maiden'. Significant anniversaries of two composers strongly connected with the carol repertoire and the King's service are marked. Charles Wood (1866-1926) popularised 'Ding dong! merrily on high', and this is included in the recent arrangement by the American composers Mack Wilberg and Peter Stevens. Harold Darke (1888-1976) directed the King's Choir during Boris Ord's absence on war service in the early 1940s. His evergreen 'In the bleak midwinter' is included. Although the main focus this year is on recent British composers, there are carols in French, German and Spanish, as well as settings not previously heard at King's of the well-known texts 'Adam lay bounden' (composed by Gaynor Howard) and of the Sussex Carol (in an arrangement by Bryan Kelly).

SUN 15:45 The Choir (b0858znz)

Her choral classic this week is "O Magnum Mysterium" by the contemporary American composer Morten Lauridsen, composed in 1994 but already one of the best-loved vocal works of the last quarter-century.

Plus, we'll be marking the 100th edition of Meet My Choir", our weekly celebration of amateur choral music-making, with a special event in the studio - as we look back over the century of choirs from across the nation who have showcased their stories on the programme.

Tom Service on the mystery, magic and music associated with bells

For thousands of years human life has been accompanied by the sound of bells - calls to prayer, driving away evil spirits, marking the hours and seasons of life - births, marriages, deaths, alarm bells, peace bells, sleigh bells and Christmas bells. Tom looks at the meaning and magic of the sound of bells, and listens to the interpretations and reverberations of bells in music.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b0857wv1)
David Attenborough - World Music Collector

David Attenborough reveals a side of himself that nobody knows, as a collector of music from all over the world. We hear the stories that surround it, and the music itself.

One of David Attenborough's first projects was 'Alan Lomax - Song Hunter', a television series he produced in 1953-4. The famous collector of the blues and folk music of America gathered traditional musicians from all over Britain and Ireland and, for the first time, they appeared on television. David loved the music, the people and, inspired by Lomax, he became music collector himself.

From the start there was a connection between wildlife and folk culture broadcasting: BBC natural history staff shared an office, and equipment, with colleagues busy recording traditional songs, tunes and stories. Soon after 'Song Hunter' Attenborough began travelling the world for the series 'Zoo Quest'. This time the hunt was for animals, captured live for London Zoo. The series also looked at the culture of local people and if he came across music Attenborough recorded it. In Paraguay he met some amazing harp players and recorded what became the series' signature tune. This started a craze. Remember Los Trios Paraguayos?

Wherever he went to make programmes David Attenborough recorded musicians. When the lads carrying the crew's baggage in New Guinea started singing, he taped them. He recorded songs in Borneo longhouses, drumming in Sierra Leone, gamelan music in Java, Aboriginal didgeridoo players and palace music in Tonga.

Attenborough gave the music to the BBC and it has sat, unheard, in the Sound Library ever since. Now he listens again to recordings he made half a century ago. He reveals the memories and stories they evoke, and his delight in the music.

Producer: Julian May.

Monday - Sarah Walker with Clare Balding

9am
My favourite... 'Beecham lollipops'. This week Sarah shares a selection of orchestral encores favoured by the acclaimed British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham. Beecham was a larger-than-life character whose musical gifts were matched by his acerbic wit and legendary anecdotes. Sarah chooses favourite lollipops including pieces by Chabrier, Delius, Sibelius, Grieg and Saint-Saëns.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the broadcaster and writer Clare Balding. Clare is best known for her expert coverage of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. She was the lead presenter in Rio this summer, and won the BAFTA Special Award and RTS Presenter of the Year Award for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Clare began broadcasting on radio in 1994 and became the main presenter of horse racing on BBC TV four years later. Since then her remit has broadened to cover almost every sport, from cricket and tennis to rugby and football. She is also the host of walking series Ramblings on Radio 4, and presents Good Morning Sunday on Radio 2, as well as having her own sports chat show, The Clare Balding Show. A bestselling author, Clare's autobiography My Animals and Other Family received critical and popular acclaim, and she has recently published her first children's book, The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop. Clare shares some of her favourite classical music with Sarah throughout the week, including Caliban's Dream featuring Dame Evelyn Glennie, which was written for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, Mozart's A Musical Joke, which Clare remembers as the soundtrack to the BBC showjumping coverage, and her favourite carol, In The Bleak Midwinter.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance
Sarah places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Renaissance era and an extraordinary royal summit meeting that took place in June 1520 between Henry VIII of England and François I of France, on a site near Calais that became known as The Field of Cloth of Gold. No such ostentatious display of power and wealth would have been complete without music from the finest English and French composers of the period - foremost among them William Cornysh and Jean Mouton.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are the trailblazing Academy of Ancient Music, founded in 1973 by Christopher Hogwood, whose rare combination of scholarship, musicianship and instrumental virtuosity shaped the orchestra's character from the start. Sarah's choices include the Academy's first recording, a disc of overtures by English composer Thomas Arne; both of their versions of Handel's Messiah, from 1980 and 2009; Mozart and Haydn's final symphonies; Schubert's 'Trout' Quintet, courtesy of The Academy of Ancient Music Chamber Ensemble and fortepianist Steven Lubin; and John Tavener's Eternity's Sunrise, written for the Academy with soprano Patricia Rozario in 1997.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08590h8)
Ivor Novello (1893-1951), Keep the Home Fires Burning

Ivor Novello becomes a household name during the Great War with Keep the Home Fires Burning. Presented by Donald Macleod

Ivor Novello's Drury Lane musicals were box-office sensations, and more popular than the likes of Oklahoma or Brigadoon. At the height of his career Novello not only had plays and musicals running in London, but also four other productions of his spectacular musicals touring the country, to say nothing of amateur productions as well. Part of the attraction was Novello himself. He was a huge celebrity on both sides of the Atlantic. Novello was an actor and playwright for both stage and screen, credited with coining the phrase Me Tarzan, You Jane, and with his matinee-idol looks he was hailed as the next Valentino. His charisma and infectious personality charmed many, so that when he died, thousands turned out to line the streets to see the hearse pass on its way. This week, a first for Composer of the Week in its over seventy-year history, Donald Macleod luxuriates in the theatrical and charismatic world of Ivor Novello, with many works specially recorded for the series. He's joined by one of Novello's biographers, David Slattery-Christy, and also explores what was once Novello's flat with Billy Differ. Donald also goes behind the scenes in Novello's London theatre-world accompanied by Rosy Runciman, with a trip to the Prince of Wales and Novello Theatres.

David Ivor Davies, who later changed his name to Ivor Novello, was born in Cardiff in 1893. His mother Clara Novello Davies was a singer and music teacher, who had once performed for Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle. Mam soon recognised her son's talents, and so sent young Ivor off to school in Gloucester, and then to Oxford where he was awarded a choral scholarship. Once Novello's voice broke, he left Oxford and soon found himself living in London with his mother, where he taught music and regularly visited the theatre. He started composing songs at this time, and it was in 1914 that he penned his first big hit, the patriotic Keep the Home Fires Burning, which made him a household name during World War One.

Hands

Imogen Stubbs and Simon Shepherd read a selection of poetry and prose exploring the way our hands, as much anything, distinguish us from all animals; even other primates cannot match us for dexterity or the handling of tools and instruments. There are few activities either in the practicality of everyday life or the creative process where hands are not involved - from making and mending to painting, writing or playing an instrument. They are also a vital means of communication, but equally they can be violent and destructive.

This edition of Words and Music explores the various roles our hands play as expressed in music from Handel, Steve Reich, Sir Michael Tippett, Puccini, Janacek and Bill Withers, with poetry from Shakespeare, John Donne, Seamus Heaney, Wendy Cope, Mary Cornish, Ruth Padel and Michael Rosen and prose from Dickens and Helen MacDonald.

The story of Mozart's last months is almost as remarkable as the string of masterpieces he produced during them. Who was the cloaked figure rumoured to have commissioned Mozart to write the Requiem? We'll never know, but the deathly tread, furious fight and radiant hope of the music remain unparalleled.

Iván Fischer brings his equally exceptional Budapest Festival Orchestra to the Proms, joined by one of Europe's leading choirs for the Requiem, alongside the autumnal shades of Mozart's late Clarinet Concerto.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Clare Balding

9am
My favourite... 'Beecham lollipops'. This week Sarah shares a selection of orchestral encores favoured by the acclaimed British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham. Beecham was a larger-than-life character whose musical gifts were matched by his acerbic wit and legendary anecdotes. Sarah chooses favourite lollipops including pieces by Chabrier, Delius, Sibelius, Grieg and Saint-Saëns.

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the broadcaster and writer Clare Balding. Clare is best known for her expert coverage of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. She was the lead presenter in Rio this summer, and won the BAFTA Special Award and RTS Presenter of the Year Award for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Clare began broadcasting on radio in 1994 and became the main presenter of horse racing on BBC TV four years later. Since then her remit has broadened to cover almost every sport, from cricket and tennis to rugby and football. She is also the host of walking series Ramblings on Radio 4, and presents Good Morning Sunday on Radio 2, as well as having her own sports chat show, The Clare Balding Show. A bestselling author, Clare's autobiography My Animals and Other Family received critical and popular acclaim, and she has recently published her first children's book, The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop. Clare shares some of her favourite classical music with Sarah throughout the week, including Caliban's Dream featuring Dame Evelyn Glennie, which was written for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, Mozart's A Musical Joke, which Clare remembers as the soundtrack to the BBC showjumping coverage, and her favourite carol, In The Bleak Midwinter.

10.30am
Music in Time: Modern
Sarah places Music in Time. Today the focus is on the Modern era and the Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes by Mieczyslaw Weinberg, who fled his native Warsaw for the Soviet Union before the Nazis invaded Poland at the outbreak of the Second World War. Weinberg, who became a close friend of Shostakovich, spent most of his life in Moscow, where his music came under intense official scrutiny following the end of the war. During this fraught period, Soviet composers were required to rid their music of 'formalist' elements, and Weinberg's Rhapsody, a skillfully-wrought medley of folk tunes from his mother's native region culminating in a dance of almost manic energy, was his somewhat subversive response - luckily for him, at a time when anti-Semitism seems to have been official government policy, the authorities seemed oblivious to the Jewish accent of much of the work's musical material.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are the trailblazing Academy of Ancient Music, founded in 1973 by Christopher Hogwood, whose rare combination of scholarship, musicianship and instrumental virtuosity shaped the orchestra's character from the start. Sarah's choices include the Academy's first recording, a disc of overtures by English composer Thomas Arne; both of their versions of Handel's Messiah, from 1980 and 2009; Mozart and Haydn's final symphonies; Schubert's 'Trout' Quintet, courtesy of The Academy of Ancient Music Chamber Ensemble and fortepianist Steven Lubin; and John Tavener's Eternity's Sunrise, written for the Academy with soprano Patricia Rozario in 1997.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08592z2)
Ivor Novello (1893-1951), The Next Valentino

Ivor Novello becomes a star of stage and screen on both sides of the Atlantic. Presented by Donald Macleod

Ivor Novello's Drury Lane musicals were box-office sensations, and more popular than the likes of Oklahoma or Brigadoon. At the height of his career Novello not only had plays and musicals running in London, but also four other productions of his spectacular musicals touring the country, to say nothing of amateur productions as well. Part of the attraction was Novello himself. He was a huge celebrity on both sides of the Atlantic. Novello was an actor and playwright for both stage and screen, credited with coining the phrase Me Tarzan, You Jane, and with his matinee-idol looks he was hailed as the next Valentino. His charisma and infectious personality charmed many, so that when he died, thousands turned out to line the streets to see the hearse pass on its way. This week, a first for Composer of the Week in its over seventy-year history, Donald Macleod luxuriates in the theatrical and charismatic world of Ivor Novello, with many works specially recorded for the series. He's joined by one of Novello's biographers, David Slattery-Christy, and also explores what was once Novello's flat with Billy Differ. Donald also goes behind the scenes in Novello's London theatre-world accompanied by Rosy Runciman, with a trip to the Prince of Wales and Novello Theatres.

During World War One Ivor Novello became a Flight Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Air Service but, having crashed two planes, soon found himself transferred to a safer desk job in London where he could enjoy the thriving world of wartime West End Theatre. In between his war work, Novello was now composing for the stage including shows such as Arlette, Our Nell and The Golden Moth. It was during this time that he met Edward Marsh, a senior figure in the Civil Service who introduced Novello to Winston Churchill and also the actor Robert Andrews. Bobbie became Novello's partner for the rest of his life, and supported and encouraged him in his emerging career as an actor and writer for stage and screen. Soon Novello found himself working with the likes of Alfred Hitchcock, and with his highly appealing good looks, he became something of a matinee-idol.

During the last four years of his life, Johann Sebastian Bach worked on a piece that he knew would represent the summation of his life's work. In the end, the material of Bach's almighty Mass in B minor was almost two decades in the making - a compilation of some of his finest vocal music woven together with startlingly original new music born of acute inspiration.

William Christie conducts Bach's Mass with a quartet of soloists and his own ensemble Les Arts Florissants, known for its historically informed and infectiously exciting performances of Baroque music.

Wednesday - Sarah Walker with Clare Balding

9am
My favourite... 'Beecham lollipops'. This week Sarah shares a selection of orchestral encores favoured by the acclaimed British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham. Beecham was a larger-than-life character whose musical gifts were matched by his acerbic wit and legendary anecdotes. Sarah chooses favourite lollipops including pieces by Chabrier, Delius, Sibelius, Grieg and Saint-Saëns.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge. Two pieces of music are played together. Can you identify them?

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the broadcaster and writer Clare Balding. Clare is best known for her expert coverage of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. She was the lead presenter in Rio this summer, and won the BAFTA Special Award and RTS Presenter of the Year Award for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Clare began broadcasting on radio in 1994 and became the main presenter of horse racing on BBC TV four years later. Since then her remit has broadened to cover almost every sport, from cricket and tennis to rugby and football. She is also the host of walking series Ramblings on Radio 4, and presents Good Morning Sunday on Radio 2, as well as having her own sports chat show, The Clare Balding Show. A bestselling author, Clare's autobiography My Animals and Other Family received critical and popular acclaim, and she has recently published her first children's book, The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop. Clare shares some of her favourite classical music with Sarah throughout the week, including Caliban's Dream featuring Dame Evelyn Glennie, which was written for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, Mozart's A Musical Joke, which Clare remembers as the soundtrack to the BBC showjumping coverage, and her favourite carol, In The Bleak Midwinter.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Sarah places Music in Time. Today the spotlight is on the Baroque era and Bach's landmark cantata 'Die Ellenden sollen essen' - The Wretched Shall Eat - which opened his first annual cantata cycle as the newly-appointed cantor of St Thomas's Church in Leipzig in 1723.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are the trailblazing Academy of Ancient Music, founded in 1973 by Christopher Hogwood, whose rare combination of scholarship, musicianship and instrumental virtuosity shaped the orchestra's character from the start. Sarah's choices include the Academy's first recording, a disc of overtures by English composer Thomas Arne; both of their versions of Handel's Messiah, from 1980 and 2009; Mozart and Haydn's final symphonies; Schubert's 'Trout' Quintet, courtesy of The Academy of Ancient Music Chamber Ensemble and fortepianist Steven Lubin; and John Tavener's Eternity's Sunrise, written for the Academy with soprano Patricia Rozario in 1997.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08592z4)
Ivor Novello (1893-1951), Glamorous Night

Ivor Novello's first hit musical Glamorous Night saves the Drury Lane Theatre. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Ivor Novello's Drury Lane musicals were box-office sensations, and more popular than the likes of Oklahoma or Brigadoon. At the height of his career Novello not only had plays and musicals running in London, but also four other productions of his spectacular musicals touring the country, to say nothing of amateur productions as well. Part of the attraction was Novello himself. He was a huge celebrity on both sides of the Atlantic. Novello was an actor and playwright for both stage and screen, credited with coining the phrase Me Tarzan, You Jane, and with his matinee-idol looks he was hailed as the next Valentino. His charisma and infectious personality charmed many, so that when he died, thousands turned out to line the streets to see the hearse pass on its way. This week, a first for Composer of the Week in its over seventy-year history, Donald Macleod luxuriates in the theatrical and charismatic world of Ivor Novello, with many works specially recorded for the series. He's joined by one of Novello's biographers, David Slattery-Christy, and also explores what was once Novello's flat with Billy Differ. Donald also goes behind the scenes in Novello's London theatre-world accompanied by Rosy Runciman, with a trip to the Prince of Wales and Novello Theatres.

The Truth Game was the first play Ivor Novello wrote himself. He soon followed this up with Symphony in Two Flats in 1929. Both plays did very well in the UK, so Novello took them to Broadway where The Truth Game in particular was a success. Whilst in America he was offered an opportunity to work as a screenwriter in Hollywood, where he socialised with the likes of Douglas Fairbanks Jnr, Joan Crawford and Greta Garbo. He also worked on the first Tarzan film and penned the immortal lines "Me Tarzan, You Jane". Novello wasn't happy in Hollywood and soon returned to the UK, where he continued to develop his career on many fronts. In 1935 came the opportunity to write his first musical, Glamorous Night. The Drury Lane Theatre was looking for a show to save it from financial ruin and Novello obliged. Glamorous Night became a huge hit - a visual and audio extravaganza with a cast of 120 and, in one act, the spectacle of the sinking of a full-scale ocean liner.

Greeneland

A celebration of Graham Greene on the 25th anniversary of his death with the actors Samuel West and Romola Garai. Pack your bags, check your passport and prepare to renew your acquaintance with Scobie, Aunt Augusta, Sarah Miles, Minty and of course Harry Lime. As they buttonhole you expect to hear music that complements or even contradicts what they have to say - Honegger's Pacific 231, The Walk to the Paradise Garden by Delius, a medieval motet, the odd snatch of gypsy zither and maybe even a spot of dodecaphony - music as angular, varied and surprising as the features of Greeneland itself.

Clemency Burton-Hill celebrates the music making of the BBC New Generation Artists. Here is the chance to hear a starry line-up of young musicians caught by the BBC microphones when they are on the brink of glittering international careers. In today's programme, there's a French focus as Pavel Kolesnikov brings his exquisite pianistic touch and enquiring mind to music by Louis Couperin and Debussy, Fatma Said sings some of Duparc's ravishing songs and twenty-two year old Andrei Ionita, winner of the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition, makes his debut in the BBC studios with Cesar Franck's romantically charged Cello Sonata.

WED 19:00 BBC Proms 2016 (b0864wrj)
Prom 69: Staatskapelle Berlin and Daniel Barenboim - Mozart and Bruckner

Staatskapelle Berlin at the BBC Proms, with Daniel Barenboim as pianist and conductor in Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 24 and Bruckner's Fourth Symphony, the 'Romantic'.

Presented by Ian Skelly from the Royal Albert Hall on 5th September 2016

Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K491
Bruckner: Symphony No. 4 in E flat major (Romantic)

Staatskapelle Berlin
Daniel Barenboim (piano and director)

Daniel Barenboim and his Staatskapelle Berlin pair a Mozart piano concerto with a Bruckner symphony. 'We shall never be able to do anything like that,' proclaimed Beethoven when he heard Mozart's dramatic, minor-key Piano Concerto No. 24.
As with Mozart in his concertos, with each of Bruckner's symphonies came a keener focus of vision and honing of craft. With the Fourth, Bruckner really came of age, bringing a newfound confidence in the glowing first movement, while its statuesque Andante is a moving premonition of loss.

WED 20:50 BBC Proms (b04f8nxx)
2014 Season, Proms Interval, The Ballroom of Romance, by William Trevor

Niamh Cusack reads one of William Trevor's greatest short stories, set in an isolated dance hall in Ireland. Trevor, who died in November, was regarded as one of the greatest short story writers in the English language.

Each Saturday night, 36-year-old Bridie leaves her ailing father, and cycles to the Ballroom of Romance, a wayside dance-hall where the local men and women meet to dance, talk and perhaps find love. For twenty years Bridie has cycled the seven miles there and back again; now, no longer a girl, she knows her chances of romance are fading but still there is Dano Ryan.

Reader: Niamh Cusack
Producer: Justine Willett.

WED 21:15 BBC Proms 2016 (b0864wrl)
Prom 36: Jamie Cullum Prom

Jamie Cullum presents an evening of late-night jazz at the BBC Proms, with performances from BBC Introducing artists the Heritage Orchestra and their conductor Jules Buckley.

Presented by Clemency Burton-Hill from the Royal Albert Hall, London, on 12th August 2016.

Jamie Cullum, piano/vocals
The Roundhouse Choir
The Heritage Orchestra
Jules Buckley, conductor

Straddling the boundaries of jazz, pop and rock, Jamie Cullum returns for another Late Night Prom after his sell-out appearance in 2010. This time, backed by the Roundhouse Choir and Heritage Orchestra, he offers his own take on a collection of pop songs, in the spirit of The Song Society - Cullum's project to create fast and loose covers of favourite tracks. He brings the same approach of new discovery both to his use of the wide array of instruments available and to exploring the distinctive space of the Royal Albert Hall.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (b08597rx)
Verity Sharp with the Late Junction albums of the year

Verity Sharp reveals the 12 best albums of 2016, as decided by the Late Junction presenter and production team, including Anne Hilde Neset, Nick Luscombe, Max Reinhardt, and Fiona Talkington.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Sarah places Music in Time. She travels back to the Classical era and listens to Mozart's so-called 'Paris' Symphony, written in 1778 when the composer was on an extended visit to the French capital. The composer's time in Paris was marked by tragedy, as his mother - who had accompanied him on the trip - died of an undiagnosed illness only a fortnight after the symphony's first public performance at the Concert Spirituel.

11am
Sarah's artists of the week are the trailblazing Academy of Ancient Music, founded in 1973 by Christopher Hogwood, whose rare combination of scholarship, musicianship and instrumental virtuosity shaped the orchestra's character from the start. Sarah's choices include the Academy's first recording, a disc of overtures by English composer Thomas Arne; both of their versions of Handel's Messiah, from 1980 and 2009; Mozart and Haydn's final symphonies; Schubert's 'Trout' Quintet, courtesy of The Academy of Ancient Music Chamber Ensemble and fortepianist Steven Lubin; and John Tavener's Eternity's Sunrise, written for the Academy with soprano Patricia Rozario in 1997.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08592z6)
Ivor Novello (1893-1951), Singing for World Peace

Ivor Novello's Mam plans to visit and sing for Hitler.
Presented by Donald Macleod

Ivor Novello's Drury Lane musicals were box-office sensations, and more popular than the likes of Oklahoma or Brigadoon. At the height of his career Novello not only had plays and musicals running in London, but also four other productions of his spectacular musicals touring the country, to say nothing of amateur productions as well. Part of the attraction was Novello himself. He was a huge celebrity on both sides of the Atlantic. Novello was an actor and playwright for both stage and screen, credited with coining the phrase Me Tarzan, You Jane, and with his matinee-idol looks he was hailed as the next Valentino. His charisma and infectious personality charmed many, so that when he died, thousands turned out to line the streets to see the hearse pass on its way. This week, a first for Composer of the Week in its over seventy-year history, Donald Macleod luxuriates in the theatrical and charismatic world of Ivor Novello, with many works specially recorded for the series. He's joined by one of Novello's biographers, David Slattery-Christy, and also explores what was once Novello's flat with Billy Differ. Donald also goes behind the scenes in Novello's London theatre-world accompanied by Rosy Runciman, with a trip to the Prince of Wales and Novello Theatres.

With the success of Novello's first musical, Glamorous Night, there followed in quick succession further sell-out musicals including Careless Rapture, Crest of the Wave and, in 1939, The Dancing Years. They were all huge successes. The Dancing Years relied less on spectacle and more on solid plot, representing Novello's horror at the treatment of Jewish composers in Austria and Germany. The Lord Chamberlain's Office required Novello to change certain elements of the show, in particular all references to the Nazis. It was during this build-up to the Second World War that Novello's mother, "Mam", decided to form her Welsh Singing Grandmothers Choir and head to Germany. The plan was to sing to Hitler in Berlin for World Peace. They made it as far as Amsterdam, and were then accompanied home again.

In Hirsuite of the Truth

In hirsute of the truth: hair can be a weapon with which to strangle your lover or a net in which to catch your crumbs. During the Victorian period, hair was a highly charged symbol of virility and an object of commerce. Changing hairstyles depict the changing power relationship between women and patriarchy. It has been fetishised, idolised and can be very useful if you're a cellist.

From the stories of Samson and Delilah and Rapunzel we see how hair - for centuries even - was considered a metaphor for virtue or righteousness: an idea especially evinced in the novels of Elizabeth Gaskell and George Eliot. Deryn Rees-Jones's haunting poem 'My Father's Hair' describes how her father's identity developed during his life and how, at his life's end, the 'long white wings' come to rest on the pillow of his sick bed.

Evil and violence pursue the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. First told in a Penny Dreadful of the 1840s, the story of Sweeney Todd inspired Stephen Sondheim's Opera of the same name. It follows a long history of compositions which conjure images of death and destruction: from Robert Browning's sinister 'Porphyria's Lover' to Carol Ann Duffy's 'Medusa'.

Berlin Staatskapelle at the BBC Proms, with Daniel Barenboim as pianist and conductor in Mozart's No 26 in D major, K537 'Coronation' and Bruckner's Symphony No 6.

Presented by Ian Skelly from the Royal Albert Hall on 6th September 2016

Mozart: Piano Concerto No 26 in D major, K537 'Coronation'
Bruckner: Symphony No 6 in A major

Staatskapelle Berlin
Daniel Barenboim (piano and director)

Bruckner, but not as we know him. In the Sixth Symphony, gone is the composer's typical heft, his long-drawn crescendos and his archetypal brooding introduction. Instead, this symphony gallops into life, crackling with vitality. Bruckner's rich and individual Sixth Symphony is heard in the second of the Staatskapelle Berlin's two Proms after a piano concerto by Mozart that boasts similar rarity and individuality.
Mozart's sparkling Piano Concerto No. 26 was performed by the composer in Frankfurt during festivities in 1790 for the coronation of Leopold II as Holy Roman Emperor.

Jonathan Morton, violin
London Sinfonietta
Andrew Gourlay, conductor

The Proms returns to Camden's industrial answer to the Royal Albert Hall for a programme which takes its lead from Ligeti's iconic Ramifications. This embracing score, for two groups of spatially positioned strings, is heard alongside music by one of Ligeti's natural musical heirs, Georg Friedrich Haas, and other new pieces concerned with physical space.
The central piece of the concert is a major new work from David Sawer that reflects the energy and physicality of dance.

The programme includes Reich's bright and excitable Music for a Large Ensemble - his first major work for full orchestra - and the shifting patterns of his single-movement 'octet' Eight Lines.

My favourite... 'Beecham lollipops'. This week Sarah shares a selection of orchestral encores favoured by the acclaimed British conductor Sir Thomas Beecham. Beecham was a larger-than-life character whose musical gifts were matched by his acerbic wit and legendary anecdotes. Sarah chooses favourite lollipops including pieces by Chabrier, Delius, Sibelius, Grieg and Saint-Saëns.

Take part in our daily musical challenge: can you work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

Sarah's guest this week is the broadcaster and writer Clare Balding. Clare is best known for her expert coverage of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. She was the lead presenter in Rio this summer, and won the BAFTA Special Award and RTS Presenter of the Year Award for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Clare began broadcasting on radio in 1994 and became the main presenter of horse racing on BBC TV four years later. Since then her remit has broadened to cover almost every sport, from cricket and tennis to rugby and football. She is also the host of walking series Ramblings on Radio 4, and presents Good Morning Sunday on Radio 2, as well as having her own sports chat show, The Clare Balding Show. A bestselling author, Clare's autobiography My Animals and Other Family received critical and popular acclaim, and she has recently published her first children's book, The Racehorse Who Wouldn't Gallop. Clare shares some of her favourite classical music with Sarah throughout the week, including Caliban's Dream featuring Dame Evelyn Glennie, which was written for the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, Mozart's A Musical Joke, which Clare remembers as the soundtrack to the BBC showjumping coverage, and her favourite carol, In The Bleak Midwinter.

Ivor Novello (1893-1951), Novello Does Time

Ivor Novello falls foul of the law and is sent to prison.
Presented by Donald Macleod

Ivor Novello's Drury Lane musicals were box-office sensations, and more popular than the likes of Oklahoma or Brigadoon. At the height of his career Novello not only had plays and musicals running in London, but also four other productions of his spectacular musicals touring the country, to say nothing of amateur productions as well. Part of the attraction was Novello himself. He was a huge celebrity on both sides of the Atlantic. Novello was an actor and playwright for both stage and screen, credited with coining the phrase Me Tarzan, You Jane, and with his matinee-idol looks he was hailed as the next Valentino. His charisma and infectious personality charmed many, so that when he died, thousands turned out to line the streets to see the hearse pass on its way. This week, a first for Composer of the Week in its over seventy-year history, Donald Macleod luxuriates in the theatrical and charismatic world of Ivor Novello, with many works specially recorded for the series. He's joined by one of Novello's biographers, David Slattery-Christy, and also explores what was once Novello's flat with Billy Differ. Donald also goes behind the scenes in Novello's London theatre-world accompanied by Rosy Runciman, with a trip to the Prince of Wales and Novello Theatres.

During the Second World War Ivor Novello met Grace Walton. She came up with a plan to assist Novello to continue using his car, despite petrol rationing. Unfortunately Novello was duped by an enamoured fan and ended up in Bow Street Magistrates Court, where he was eventually sentenced to four weeks in Wormwood Scrubs. Churchill was furious and offered to get the sentence suspended, but Novello refused and served his time. This stint in prison affected Novello's health and he never got over it. There was a great deal of sympathy for Novello, and once he returned to the London stage he received much applause. Towards the end of the war Novello composed his musical show, Perchance to Dream, which included his second-most famous song, We'll Gather Lilacs in the Spring. Although Novello went on to compose further musicals, King's Rhapsody and Gay's the Word, his health never fully recovered from his prison ordeal, and he died in 1951.

William Carlos William's majestic poem 'At The Ball Game' celebrates the festive side of crowds and hints at the potential for terror. This foreboding is embodied in Stravinsky's manipulated puppet trapped in a fairground burlesque, and Petrushka points towards the political nature of crowds. In Dicken's famous revolutionary novel 'A Tale of Two Cities', playful games outside a wine shop end with the word BLOOD painted in red wine. Shakespeare's Coriolanus addresses the mob and Aldous Huxley analyses Hitler, the ultimate manipulator of crowds, in 'Brave New World Revisited'. Verdi's Nabucco completes this section; so synonymous is it with Italian history and politics Ricardo Muti recently found his audience rising as one to join in the 'Hebrew Slaves Chorus'.

Freddie Mercury's anthem 'Someone to Love' heralds the personal nature of crowds - the pursuit of the perfect match in amongst humanity - and the sense of loneliness experienced in a crowd. We visit Gatsby's vibrant parties, glittering with emptiness; Cinderella fleeing the ball and Maya Angelou's phenomenal woman where men swarm around her like bees. Finally we end with Philip Larkin's love poem written to Maeve whilst listening to a broadcast of the concert she was attending. There are a few other crowd pleasers along the way, including music by Handel, Grieg, Mozart, Beethoven, Elgar and Copland; with additional words from Walt Whitman, Wordsworth and Garrison Keillor.

Producer, Erika Wright.

As part of the 2016 Proms celebration of South American music and musicians, we hear a performance of Venezuelan composer Paul Desenne's Hipnosis mariposa and one of Heitor Villa-Lobos's orchestral tributes to JS Bach - his Bachianas Brasileiras No 2. This most thrusting of orchestras ends with Ravel's dizzying parody of a fin-de-siècle waltz, La Valse.
