SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08cgvlp)
Mental health in classical music, Kasper Holten, Soosan Lolavar

Presented by Tom Service

Tom talks to the Royal Opera House's Director of Opera, Kasper Holten, who concludes his tenure with the company with a new production of Wagner's Die Meistersinger, which opens in March. Holten reveals his thoughts about the future of opera's big institutions, his passion for an art-form which he believes can engage powerfully with politics and culture across the world today, and why he's giving up arguably the biggest job in opera to move back to his native Denmark.

And the young British-Iranian composer Soosan Lolavar on her new opera, ID Please, based on the testimony of people detained in immigration centres, which is soon to receive its first performance in the US.

And Tom explores issues of mental health for professional musicians in the UK, including new research by Help Musicians UK about levels of depression and anxiety in the industry, how orchestras support their players, and how music colleges are preparing the next generation for a professional life in music. With contributions from Dr Deborah Charnock, chief executive of BAPAM (British Association of Performing Arts Medicine), psychotherapist Helen Brice, the Halle's chief executive John Summers, Aaron Williamon from the Royal College of Music's Centre for Performance Science, students from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and musicians' testimonies taken from recent studies in the industry. And Richard Boothby talks about working with Richard Campbell, with whom he co-founded the viol consort Fretwork, who had a long battle with depression before he died in 2011.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b06nr54x)
Alice at Crackpot Hall

Newcastle writer David Almond investigates the story of a wild child who was said to roam the Yorkshire Dales near Crackpot Hall in the 1930s - and makes a surprising discovery.

Crackpot Hall is an ancient, ruined farmhouse near the village of Keld, which lies on the crossroads of the Pennine Way and the Coast to Coast Path in Swaledale. In its time, it has been a hunting lodge, an office for the local lead-mining industry and a family farm.

The acclaimed children's writer David Almond has long been intrigued by Crackpot Hall, and for decades has travelled west from his home near Newcastle to visit it. Recently, his curiosity was rekindled when he read about Alice, a four-year old child who was said to have been discovered roaming wild near Crackpot in the 1930s.

Led by the fabled laughter of Alice, David set out to find the wild child again and hear her story. Prepared to engage his imagination as a writer if facts alone failed, David was amazed by what Crackpot could still reveal.
Spoiler Alert: Alice was 4 years old when Ella Pontefract and Marie Hartley, the author and illustrator of a 1930s guide-book to Swaledale declared they had found her - "with a mocking, chuckling laugh" as she roamed alone with her dog and cats near Crackpot. Like many others, David believed Alice to be a figment of the two women's imagination, so he set out to make a programme about how places create stories. He found Alice, now 88, living in a village near Carlisle, and as full of laughter as ever.

With music arranged by the Leeds-based composer Emily Levy.

Producer: Beaty Rubens.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08cgzmf)
Sarah Lucas

Sarah Lucas burst onto the art scene in the early 1990s, one of the wildest and most provocative of the Young British Artists. Her work was challenging, bawdy, revolutionary: her first solo show in 1992 was called "Penis Nailed to a Board". She challenged macho culture with sculptures such as "Two Fried Eggs and a Kebab" in which she constructed a naked female body - from a table, two eggs, and a kebab. Lucas makes sculptures from worn-out furniture, stuffed tights, fruit (particularly bananas), and cigarettes - she's a passionate smoker. In 2015 she represented Britain at the Venice Biennale, and the centrepiece with a massive yellow sculpture named after the footballer Maradona - part man, part maypole, with dangling breasts and a nine-foot phallus.

In Private Passions, Sarah Lucas looks back on the wild days of the 90s, and her upbringing in North London "a childhood completely without ambition". She talks about leaving school at 16, becoming pregnant, but then deciding not to keep the baby; and how that decision enabled her to know clearly what she wanted to do with her life. She reflects on how the central relationships in her life lead to artistic collaboration - with her partner, the composer Julian Simmons, and with her girlfriends, whose lower bodies she cast in plaster. And Sarah Lucas reveals that the wild London party girl is now happiest in Suffolk, living at the end of a country lane, and listening to Benjamin Britten. How seriously are we supposed to take her work? "Just because you're funny doesn't mean you can't be serious too."

Sarah Lucas's music choices include Purcell's King Arthur; songs by Benjamin Britten and Ivor Gurney; and music by her partner Julian Simmons.

The Silver Swan

Graceful swans, magical swans, migrating swans; swans loyal and, on occasion, cynical; swans living and dying. A miscellany of poetry and prose by WB Yeats, Hans Christian Andersen, Louise Glück, Gillian Clarke, Rilke, Tennyson and "Banjo" Paterson floats above music that includes works by Saint-Saëns, Villa-Lobos, Tchaikovsky, Rautavaara (complete with the sounds of arctic swans) and Sibelius, whose 5th Symphony was inspired by the sight of sixteen swans - "One of the great experiences of my life!" he wrote, " God, how beautiful."

Savage Pilgrims

"The moment I saw the brilliant, proud morning shine up over the deserts of Santa Fe, something stood still in my soul, and I started to attend" wrote DH Lawrence when he arrived in New Mexico in the 1920s. Since the turn of the 20th century a steady stream of sculptors, writers, painters, and composers have made New Mexico their home, along with a caravan of people seeking new ways of living in the high desert. Sara Mohr Pietsch heads to the American south-west to discover what it was amongst the piñon trees that first attracted them, and why so many now have their homes and studios there.

On her journey around the state she meets composers Raven Chacon and Meredith Monk who talk of the peculiar acoustic propoerties when performing outside, author Henry Shukman traces the early Anglo artist colonies at Taos, poet Mei Mei Berssenbrugge and artists Richard Tuttle reflect on the nature of spirituality, and artists Lynda Benglis and Tom Joyce talk of a deep connection with the land. Sara visits the ancient Taos Pueblo, home to a Pueblo Indian community for over 1000 years, to
hear how the native communities of the land became the focus of so much artistic interest, and sits quietly at the Harwood Museum of Art to look on some of the last paintings made by minimalist Agnes Martin, another New Mexico resident.

There is no one answer to why artists are drawn to New Mexico, but through interviews with those who live there, Sara discovers a deep connection between the people - be they Native, Hispanic or Anglo - and the red land, the clear light and the humbling, savage vastness of this "Land of Enchantment".

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b08cwlcv)
The Government Inspector

Adapted by Adrian Mitchell from Nikolai Gogol's classic satire, the drama concerns the corrupt officials of a small Russian town, headed by the Governor (Roger Allam), who react with terror to the news that an incognito inspector will soon be arriving in their town to investigate them. When Khlestakov (Lenny Henry), a penniless nobody from Moscow, is mistaken for this government inspector, a tangled web of misunderstandings ensues. Gogol portrays officialdom as self-satisfied philistines occupying positions for which they are ill-suited.

Widely held to have led the realist revolution in Russian drama, Nikolai Gogol (1809 - 1852) liberated comedy from a tradition of sentimentality. The Government Inspector (1835), regarded as Gogol's masterpiece, caused such a furore when first performed that he was driven into exile.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Simon Callow

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

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

10am
Rob's guest is the actor, writer and director Simon Callow. Sir Laurence Olivier gave Simon his first theatre job - in the box office of the National Theatre - and after that the young Callow soon found his way onto the stage, first coming to prominence playing Mozart in Peter Shaffer's play Amadeus. He has since become one of the UK's best-loved actors, not only on the stage, but in TV series such as Chance in a Million, and films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral. Simon is often referred to as a writer who acts, having produced not only books about his own life as an actor, but also biographies of Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Orson Welles and most recently Richard Wagner. During the week Simon discusses all this and more and chooses music by Sibelius, Grainger, Mozart and Wagner.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Rob places Music and Time. Today he heads back to the Classical period, his destination, Vienna in 1786, for a piece sometimes said to have been composed during a game of skittles: Mozart's Trio in E flat Major, K498, nicknamed the 'Kegelstatt' and written for the unprecedented combination of clarinet, viola and piano.

11am
Artist of the Week: Sir Thomas Beecham
'The Beecham Touch' is an epithet for all that is stylish, delicate, mischievous and spontaneous in conducting. Sir Thomas was the living embodiment of charm, genuine authenticity (in that he conducted from the heart as well as from the head) and a sense of theatre that could leave an audience breathless with excitement. Rob's selection of Beecham recordings ranges from Handel and Haydn to Delius and Sibelius, all of them 'first-loves' for this most charismatic of conductors.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08ch1js)
Alexander Mackenzie (1847-1935), Studying in Germany

Presented by Donald Macleod. Young Alexander Mackenzie is left by himself to study in Germany.

Sir Alexander Mackenzie rose from humble beginnings in Edinburgh, to become not only a celebrated and international composer, but also the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Along with Parry and Stanford he was a significant player in the renaissance of British music, and was pivotal in establishing the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. During his career commissions regularly came his way, including concertos, oratorios and operas. He eventually returned to London, after further spells in Edinburgh and Italy, where he remained for the rest of his life, composing and managing the RAM. He was honoured by Queen Victoria for his services to music, and he received the Gold Medal from the Royal Philharmonic Society. During his long career his music was premiered by the likes of Sarasate and the Carl Rosa opera company. W.S Gilbert and Lewis Carroll both approached Mackenzie with collaborative projects in mind, and as a conductor he worked with Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt, and Saint-Saëns to name only a few.

Alexander Mackenzie was born in 1847 in Edinburgh, where his father performed as a violinist in the Theatre Royal. In the light of his own deteriorating health, Mackenzie senior wanted to make provision for his son's musical education and so took him to Germany, where he studied at a young age with Kappelmeister Eduard Stein, and played violin in the Weimar ducal orchestra. Aged fifteen, young Alick, as he was known, returned to Britain and took up further studies at the Royal Academy of Music, earning his keep by playing in theatre orchestras in London. He started writing music at this time and when he returned to live in Edinburgh in 1865, he was instrumental in setting up regular chamber music concerts there, along with founding a string quartet which gave the premiere of his own Quartet in G major.

Thrills and high drama are guaranteed with Kabalevsky's rip-roaring overture and Shostakovich's powerful Tenth Symphony, all conducted by the BBC Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo. Kabalevsky's piece, full of fizz and pop, is followed by a very different work, Michael Zev Gordon's new violin concerto - a work of rich lyrical power with bold contrasts of colour and expression - and performed here with the acclaimed German violinist Carolin Widmann.
Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony, a heartfelt cry for freedom written under the looming presence of Joseph Stalin, is one of the 20th century's most shattering symphonic experiences.

Simon is often referred to as a writer who acts, having produced not only books about his own life as an actor, but also biographies of Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Orson Welles and most recently Richard Wagner. During the week Simon discusses all this and more and chooses music by Sibelius, Grainger, Mozart and Wagner.

Music in Time: Renaissance
Rob places Music in Time. Today, he travels back to the Renaissance period to experience music from a monumental work by the French composer Antoine Brumel: his ground-breaking 'Earthquake Mass'. It's the first mass to be written for 12 independent voices, and the effect is scintillating.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of Rachmaninov's Prelude in G flat major, Op.23 No.10, played by the Brazilian pianist Yara Bernette and by the composer himself.

11am
Artist of the Week: Sir Thomas Beecham
'The Beecham Touch' is an epithet for all that is stylish, delicate, mischievous and spontaneous in conducting. Sir Thomas was the living embodiment of charm, genuine authenticity (in that he conducted from the heart as well as from the head) and a sense of theatre that could leave an audience breathless with excitement. Rob's selection of Beecham recordings ranges from Handel and Haydn to Delius and Sibelius, all of them 'first-loves' for this most charismatic of conductors.

Alexander Mackenzie (1847-1935), A Mother's Wrath

Alexander Mackenzie disobeys his mother in marriage, presented by Donald Macleod

Sir Alexander Mackenzie rose from humble beginnings in Edinburgh, to become not only a celebrated and international composer, but also the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Along with Parry and Stanford he was a significant player in the renaissance of British music, and was pivotal in establishing the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. During his career commissions regularly came his way, including concertos, oratorios and operas. He eventually returned to London, after further spells in Edinburgh and Italy, where he remained for the rest of his life, composing and managing the RAM. He was honoured by Queen Victoria for his services to music, and he received the Gold Medal from the Royal Philharmonic Society. During his long career his music was premiered by the likes of Sarasate and the Carl Rosa opera company. W.S Gilbert and Lewis Carroll both approached Mackenzie with collaborative projects in mind, and as a conductor he worked with Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt, and Saint-Saëns to name only a few.

By 1865 Alexander Mackenzie had returned to Edinburgh and was busy as a music teacher, and also conducting a number of choral groups as well. Whilst in Scotland he composed a number of works for the voice, including songs and partsongs. He was also active as a violinist, playing in a quartet he'd founded, and taking on work in Birmingham for Michael Costa's orchestra. Newly composed chamber works such as his Piano Quartet Op 11 were proving popular, not only in Scotland but in London as well. Much to the annoyance of his family, in 1874 he married Mary Malina Burnside, and the newlyweds moved to Darnaway Street in Edinburgh. A few years later under doctor's orders, Mackenzie was forced to take a break from his heavy workload, and so he moved with his wife and child to Florence. It was here that a commission came for his Second Scottish Rhapsody.

Ulster Orchestra - Elgar, Ravel, Franck

The Ulster Orchestra are joined by their former principal conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier in a performance of Elgar's tone poem In the South 'Alassio', written between 1903 and1904, the subtitle a reference to the town in Italy where the composer and his family stayed during the holiday when he wrote the work. Then, Ravel's Piano Trio in A minor, orchestrated and arranged by conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier. Tortelier explained that his reason for orchestrating the Trio goes back many years, when he and his father and sister performed the work, and much of it was completed during his time in Belfast and written specially for the Ulster Orchestra.

The programme is rounded off with Franck's Symphony in D minor, the only symphony the composer wrote, completed in August 1888. The piece received its premiere the following year at the Paris Conservatory and is dedicated to his pupil, the composer Henri Duparc.

Alexander Mackenzie (1847-1935), Collaborating with Carl Rosa

Mackenzie's opera Colomba is a huge success in London and abroad. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Sir Alexander Mackenzie rose from humble beginnings in Edinburgh, to become not only a celebrated and international composer, but also the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Along with Parry and Stanford he was a significant player in the renaissance of British music, and was pivotal in establishing the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. During his career commissions regularly came his way, including concertos, oratorios and operas. He eventually returned to London, after further spells in Edinburgh and Italy, where he remained for the rest of his life, composing and managing the RAM. He was honoured by Queen Victoria for his services to music, and he received the Gold Medal from the Royal Philharmonic Society. During his long career his music was premiered by the likes of Sarasate and the Carl Rosa opera company. W.S Gilbert and Lewis Carroll both approached Mackenzie with collaborative projects in mind, and as a conductor he worked with Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt, and Saint-Saëns to name only a few.

Alexander Mackenzie was now permanently settled in Florence with his wife and child, but he did make occasional return visits to London and Edinburgh. It was on one of these trips in 1882, that he was startled to find a letter waiting for him offering a commission to write a new opera for the Carl Rosa Opera Company. Mackenzie accepted and the outcome was Colomba, which was premiered a year later with the composer conducting at Drury Lane. It was a great success, and Mackenzie not only found himself being invited to breakfast at 10 Downing Street, but he also conducted another performance in Darmstadt at the court theatre where he was presented with a gold medal by the Grand Duke. Commissions were now regularly coming Mackenzie's way including an oratorio for Norwich, The Rose of Sharon, and for another choral work for Birmingham, although Mackenzie delivered on that occasion a violin concerto instead, which was premiered by Sarasate.

Simon is often referred to as a writer who acts, having produced not only books about his own life as an actor, but also biographies of Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Orson Welles and most recently Richard Wagner. During the week Simon discusses all this and more and chooses music by Sibelius, Grainger, Mozart and Wagner.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Rob places Music in Time, and travels back to the Romantic era. The composer, pianist and organist César Franck was renowned for his brilliance at improvising around sacred melodies. Rob explores how Franck's expertise in developing and transforming musical themes was channelled into his Symphonic Variations for piano and orchestra.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of the aria Ombra mai fù by Handel, sung by two favourite singers from different eras: the tenor Enrico Caruso and countertenor Andreas Scholl.

11am Artist of the Week: Sir Thomas Beecham
'The Beecham Touch' is an epithet for all that is stylish, delicate, mischievous and spontaneous in conducting. Sir Thomas was the living embodiment of charm, genuine authenticity (in that he conducted from the heart as well as from the head) and a sense of theatre that could leave an audience breathless with excitement. Rob's selection of Beecham recordings ranges from Handel and Haydn to Delius and Sibelius, all of them 'first-loves' for this most charismatic of conductors.

Alexander Mackenzie (1847-1935), The Royal Academy of Music

Alexander Mackenzie is appointed Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Presented by Donald Macleod

Sir Alexander Mackenzie rose from humble beginnings in Edinburgh, to become not only a celebrated and international composer, but also the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Along with Parry and Stanford he was a significant player in the renaissance of British music, and was pivotal in establishing the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. During his career commissions regularly came his way, including concertos, oratorios and operas. He eventually returned to London, after further spells in Edinburgh and Italy, where he remained for the rest of his life, composing and managing the RAM. He was honoured by Queen Victoria for his services to music, and he received the Gold Medal from the Royal Philharmonic Society. During his long career his music was premiered by the likes of Sarasate and the Carl Rosa opera company. W.S Gilbert and Lewis Carroll both approached Mackenzie with collaborative projects in mind, and as a conductor he worked with Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt, and Saint-Saëns to name only a few.

By 1885, Alexander Mackenzie was living in London, where he'd taken on conducting a series of concerts promoted by the Novello publishing firm. Through his concert work, he came into contact with other composers such as Dvorak. Commissions were continuing to come Mackenzie's way including for another opera, called Troubadour; however he soon tired of London and returned to Italy. Mackenzie didn't remain there for long. In 1888 he was appointed Principal of the Royal Academy of Music, where he made quite a stir instituting changes - such as insisting that he should have his own office. Despite his now busy workload back in London, he continued to compose. His Pibroch Suite was premiered in 1889 and just a few years later came Britannia, a Nautical Overture, composed to celebrate the seventieth anniversary of the Royal Academy of Music.

Dartington and Tetbury Festivals 2016, Episode 3

Nicola Heywood Thomas continues coverage of highlights of the Dartington and Tetbury Festivals 2016, featuring recitals by Chloë Hanslip and Steven Osborne.

An all-Dartington Festival programme today, as another of Debussy's key works for solo piano - his evocative Images - bisects two very different, highly-Romantic violin sonatas. Dvorak's charming Op 100 Sonatina was the last chamber work written on his famous journey to the USA - and features melodies inspired by his encounters with traditional American music. By contrast, Prokofiev's Op 94 sonata was originally written for flute, but rearranged for violin whilst the composer was evacuated to the Ural Mountains at the height of World War Two.

Friday - Rob Cowan with Simon Callow

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

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

10am
Rob's guest is the actor, writer and director Simon Callow. Sir Laurence Olivier gave Simon his first theatre job - in the box office of the National Theatre - and after that the young Callow soon found his way onto the stage, first coming to prominence playing Mozart in Peter Shaffer's play Amadeus. He has since become one of the UK's best-loved actors, not only on the stage, but in TV series such as Chance in a Million, and films such as Four Weddings and a Funeral. Simon is often referred to as a writer who acts, having produced not only books about his own life as an actor, but also biographies of Charles Dickens, Shakespeare, Orson Welles and most recently Richard Wagner. During the week Simon discusses all this and more and chooses music by Sibelius, Grainger, Mozart and Wagner.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Rob places Music in Time, and explores a form characteristic of the Baroque Era: the Trio Sonata. Despite its name, this type of sonata is generally played by four players, and first appeared in the Opus 1 of Arcangelo Corelli, published in 1681. Rob introduces Corelli's very first trio sonata, as well as a later example by Telemann - who was born in that same year.

11am
Artist of the Week: Sir Thomas Beecham
'The Beecham Touch' is an epithet for all that is stylish, delicate, mischievous and spontaneous in conducting. Sir Thomas was the living embodiment of charm, genuine authenticity (in that he conducted from the heart as well as from the head) and a sense of theatre that could leave an audience breathless with excitement.

Alexander Mackenzie (1847-1935), Touring Canada

Sir Alexander Mackenzie promotes British music in Canada and Europe. Presented by Donald Macleod

Sir Alexander Mackenzie rose from humble beginnings in Edinburgh, to become not only a celebrated and international composer, but also the Principal of the Royal Academy of Music. Along with Parry and Stanford he was a significant player in the renaissance of British music, and was pivotal in establishing the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. During his career commissions regularly came his way, including concertos, oratorios and operas. He eventually returned to London, after further spells in Edinburgh and Italy, where he remained for the rest of his life, composing and managing the RAM. He was honoured by Queen Victoria for his services to music, and he received the Gold Medal from the Royal Philharmonic Society. During his long career his music was premiered by the likes of Sarasate and the Carl Rosa opera company. W.S Gilbert and Lewis Carroll both approached Mackenzie with collaborative projects in mind, and as a conductor he worked with Tchaikovsky, Dvorak, Liszt, and Saint-Saëns to name only a few.

In 1903, Sir Alexander Mackenzie accepted an invitation to tour Canada, introducing British repertoire to new audiences. He travelled the country working with fourteen choirs, and orchestras. During these travels Mackenzie became interested in Canadian folksong, which became the inspiration for an orchestral work, his Canadian Rhapsody. A few years later, in 1910, after much hard work in his role as Principal, a new building was at last built for the Royal Academy of Music in London. Among the music performed at the laying of the foundation stone, was Mackenzie's partsong My Soul Would Drink Those Echoes. Mackenzie remained Principal of the RAM until the early 1920s, when he decided to retire. He was still actively composing though, including two a cappella grace settings, written in 1931. A few years later, in 1935, Sir Alexander Mackenzie died, aged 87. He'd been a pivotal figure in British music-making for many decades. His funeral took place in the church of St Marylebone, just along the road from the Royal Academy of Music, and it was followed by a memorial service held at St Paul's Cathedral.

Originally from Yugoslavia, he loves small-town encounters in the UK, and considers what place he occupies in them as an exile. The Red Shed is Wakefield's Labour club and comedian Mark Thomas has been going there since he was a student. His new show is a love letter to the Red Shed and in it he explores how a sense of place can shape or distort our memory.
