SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08f4px2)
Petina Gappah

Petina Gappah grew up in Zimbabwe during segregation, when black girls were not thought worthy of education. Despite this, she became a lawyer and was awarded law degrees from the University of Zimbabwe and then Cambridge, and Graz University in Austria. Moving to Geneva, she fought high-profile international cases. But all the time she had a secret life: she woke at 4am every morning to write. Petina Gappah's first short story was published online when she was 37 - and now, only 8 years later, there are two short-story collections, a novel, "The Book of Memory", several translations, with another novel in the pipeline. From the start there has been a sense of a new voice arriving - Gappah's first book won the Guardian First Book Award. Her stories are set in Zimbabwe, and they're about crime and punishment, love and family, in a deeply corrupt and divided society.

In Private Passions, Petina Gappah talks to Michael Berkeley about her childhood and the experiences which gave her such determination and drive. She discusses her determination to translate George Orwell into her first language, Shona, and what "Animal Farm" says to readers in Zimbabwe. She explores too her ambiguous relationship with her homeland, and what she feels about being called "the voice of Zimbabwe". Music choices include Verdi, Bob Dylan, Mahler's Piano Quartet in A Minor, and the Bhundu Boys.

Wigmore Hall Mondays: Kathryn Rudge and James Baillieu

From Wigmore Hall in London, mezzo soprano Kathryn Rudge and pianist James Baillieu perform a recital of English song.
English song flourished at the beginning of the 20th-century and was influenced by the wealth of poetry and the trauma of global warfare. Today's concert journeys through a programme of songs by Howells and Quilter and a rarity by Denis Browne, and Kathryn and James are joined by viola player Gary Pomeroy for three songs by Frank Bridge.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Herbert Howells: Come sing and dance
Roger Quilter: Go, lovely rose; Now sleeps the crimson petal; Music, when soft voices die
William Charles Denis Browne: To Gratiana, dancing and singing
Herbert Howells: Peacock Pie - song-cycle Op.33
Ivor Gurney: Sleep; Most holy night; The Fields are full; By a bierside
Frank Bridge*: Far, far from each other; Where is it that our soul doth go?; Music when soft voices die

William Lyons on David Munrow

Director of The Dufay Collective, William Lyons, celebrates the life and work of one of his musical heroes - early music specialist, historian, multi-instrumentalist, broadcaster and pioneer David Munrow, who took his own life in 1976 during a state of depression at the age of just 33.

Munrow perhaps did more than anyone else in the second half of the 20th century to popularise early music in Great Britain, despite a career lasting barely ten years. This was underscored when the Voyager space probe committee selected one of his recordings to be carried on it as part of the Voyager Golden Record. He left behind him not only his recordings but a large collection of musical instruments. The Munrow Archive at the Royal Academy of Music holds a collection of his letters, papers, TV scripts, scores, musical compositions and books which is accessible to the public.

In space no-one can hear you sing...

Space. A place few men or women have gone before ... but plenty of composers have. The universe has inspired musicians for hundreds of years and consequently we all know what space music sounds like. Or do we?

From Holst and David Bowie to John Williams via Ligeti, Thomas Ades and the Beastie Boys, Tom Service dons his spacesuit on a mission to explore why cosmic-inspired music sounds the way it does, and discovers how space science is just as inspired by music as musicians are by space.

En route to the stars, space scientist Lucie Green is on hand to tell Tom the reality of sound in space, while mathematician Elaine Chew helps him uncover the music of the spheres.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08f4pxd)
King Kong - The Township Jazz Musical

The award-winning alto saxophonist Soweto Kinch uncovers the story of 'King Kong', an extraordinary musical collaboration that took place in apartheid-torn South Africa inspired by the life and tragic death of the heavyweight-boxing champion Ezekiel Dlamini. The show defied the colour bar and lead the way as part of a cultural renaissance; it became Nelson Mandela's favourite musical and proved, beyond doubt, that co-operation and respect make indomitable bedfellows. Its creators consciously intended it to be a model of fruitful co-operation between black and white South Africans in the international entertainment field, and a direct challenge to apartheid.

Lewis Nkosi wrote, 'The resounding welcome accorded to the musical at Wits University Great Hall, in Johannesburg, on Feb 2nd 1959, was not so much for the jazz musical as a finished artistic product as it was applause for an Idea which had been achieved by pooling together resources from both black and white artists in the face of impossible odds.'

Starring Miriam Makeba, 'King Kong' toured South Africa for two years playing to over a quarter of a million people, two thirds of whom were white. It then arrived in London's West End in 1961.

Singer Abigail Kubeka talks about the infamous township of Sophiatown and her memories of Ezekiel, whilst Hugh Masekela recalls the show and its composer Todd Matshikisa. We meet Irene Menel, anti-apartheid activist and philanthropist who, with her husband Clive, put the show together against all the odds. Lyricist Pat Williams talks about the difficulties of writing under the shadow of apartheid. A revival of 'King Kong' is scheduled for 2017; Eric Abraham, its producer, comments on its timelessness and relevance in today's South Africa.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b05tpnkk)
The Process

A new adaptation of Franz Kafka's classic book The Trial - dramatised and updated by Mark Ravenhill as part of Radio 3's series "In the Shadow of Kafka".

Imagine being accused of something you've not only not done, you don't even know what it is. Imagine a series of quasi-authority figures invading your office, bedroom and streets at any time of day or night. Imagine the buildings and city in which you live changing in front of your eyes. Imagine a never-ending, increasingly frightening process in which you are the key player and the least in charge. Welcome to the world of Joseph Kay.

Franz Kafka spawned a whole genre of writing and entered the OED with an adjective that encapsulates his very specific brand of clear, considered prose, nightmarish landscapes of misunderstanding, twisted psyches and utter loss of individual identity. Der Prozess was first published in 1925.

Mark says:
"Kafka's Der Prozess is one of the defining texts of the twentieth century, so it was an exciting challenge to re-imagine it for our times. I found that Kafka's story - of an individual struggling with a system in which responsibility, judgement and meaning are endlessly deferred - sat remarkably and yet uncomfortably well in a contemporary setting. Reading through my script before I delivered it, I couldn't be sure if I'd written a comedy or a tragedy. I would guess that's what Kafka wanted."

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the artist Maggi Hambling. In a career spanning nearly 50 years Maggi has made her mark in a number of fields, including painting, portraiture and sculpture. Her best-known piece is Scallop, which stands on Aldeburgh beach in Suffolk, and is dedicated to the town's most celebrated son, Benjamin Britten. Another of her sculptures, A Conversation with Oscar Wilde, was the first public monument dedicated to the playwright and novelist. Maggi's portraits include those of fellow artist Francis Bacon and blues singer George Melly and recently, she's produced a number of extremely visceral paintings of waves, the result of daily walks on the Suffolk coast. As well as discussing her life and work, Maggi shares some of her favourite classical music, including Purcell, Britten and the synaesthetic composer Deborah Pritchard.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08f5g7b)
Niels Gade (1817-1890), The Wedding Composer

Donald Macleod's charts Niels Gade's early life, leading up to his breakthrough work, "Echoes of Ossian".

Taken under his wing by Felix Mendelssohn, in his lifetime the Danish composer Niels Gade was a celebrated figure, who performed to great acclaim in Great Britain and across Europe. In his birthland Denmark, his association with Copenhagen's Music Society and his founding directorship of the Conservatory gave him a voice of influence within musical circles. He remains part of the Danish national consciousness, through the Wedding March from his ballet "Et folkesagn". It's one of the most popular picks for weddings. However, since his death, at the age of 73 in 1890, performances of his music have become all too infrequent leaving most of his considerable legacy largely unheard.

The 200th anniversary of Gade's birth provides a good reason to rediscover his music. Weddings aside, Niels Gade is the composer of no less than eight symphonies; a concerto for his own instrument, the violin; a rich variety of choral settings and solo songs; a host of chamber music, including a piano trio, and no less than five string quartets; piano music and a whole series of large-scale works which we might want to categorise as choral cantatas but which he called "concert pieces".

There is little published information about Niels Gade available in English. Donald Macleod is joined by Dr. Colin Roth, a co-director of the Nordic Research Centre at the University of Sheffield. Across the week, Colin shares his own research into Gade's music and information garnered from the most detailed biography of the composer, which was published in Denmark in 2002 by Danish musicologist Inger Sørensen.

Today, Donald Macleod explores the years up to Gade's breakthrough as a composer. Born in 1817, Gade's childhood was marked by the economic hardship endured in Copenhagen after the country declared bankruptcy in 1813. Despite the disadvantages of a lack of money and a limited access to education, aged 23, Gade won a prestigious competition with an astonishingly accomplished orchestral overture, "Echoes of Ossian".

The Other Auld Alliance, Episode 1

Scotland's historical relationship with France is often termed the Auld Alliance. By 1560 the Auld Alliance was more or less over but it has lingered on in the Scottish sentimental memory. Stuart Kelly argues that the real Auld Alliance was between Scotland and the "various principalities, kingdoms, cantons, duchies and electorates that would eventually comprise Germany and its German-speaking neighbours." In these essays he explores the relationship between Scotland and the German world as it has played out in literature, education, philosophy, the visual arts and historiography. In this first essay he explores the role that Prince Albert played in the invention of modern Scotland.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Maggi Hambling

9am
Sarah 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 our daily musical challenge:  identify a piece of music played backwards.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the artist Maggi Hambling. In a career spanning nearly 50 years Maggi has made her mark in a number of fields, including painting, portraiture and sculpture. Her best-known piece is Scallop, which stands on Aldeburgh beach in Suffolk, and is dedicated to the town's most celebrated son, Benjamin Britten. Another of her sculptures, A Conversation with Oscar Wilde, was the first public monument dedicated to the playwright and novelist. Maggi's portraits include those of fellow artist Francis Bacon and blues singer George Melly and recently, she's produced a number of extremely visceral paintings of waves, the result of daily walks on the Suffolk coast. As well as discussing her life and work, Maggi shares some of her favourite classical music, including Purcell, Britten and the synaesthetic composer Deborah Pritchard.

10.30am
Music in Time: Medieval
Today Sarah's heading back to the Medieval period to look at a musical device called a clausula, a way of taking existing plainchant melodies and developing them further.

Double Take
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two interpretations of Debussy's Clair de lune, one for piano and the other for orchestra.

11am
Artist of the Week: London Sinfonietta
Imbued with a mission to perform the best contemporary classical music, develop new work and nurture new talent, the London Sinfonietta are one of the most vibrant and exciting ensembles in the UK, and arguably the world. Since their first concert in 1968 - the world premiere of John Tavener's The Whale - the Sinfonietta have commissioned more than 300 works and premiered hundreds more. This week Sarah explores some of their finest recordings with music by composers including Gorecki, Stravinsky, Takemitsu, Harrison Birtwistle and John Tavener.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08f5k0g)
Niels Gade (1817-1890), Ghosts and Trolls

Donald Macleod explores folk-tales in Niels Gade's charming ballet, Et folkesagn, written as a co-production with his father-in-law, the Danish composer J.P.E Hartmann and the literary source of his only Sonata for Piano.

Taken under his wing by Felix Mendelssohn, in his lifetime the Danish composer Niels Gade was a celebrated figure, who performed to great acclaim in Great Britain and across Europe. In his birthland Denmark, his association with Copenhagen's Music Society and his founding directorship of the Conservatory gave him a voice of influence within musical circles. He remains part of the Danish national consciousness, through the Wedding March from his ballet "Et folkesagn". It's one of the most popular picks for weddings. However, since his death, at the age of 73 in 1890, performances of his music have become all too infrequent leaving most of his considerable legacy largely unheard.

The 200th anniversary of Gade's birth provides a good reason to rediscover his music. Weddings aside, Niels Gade is the composer of no less than eight symphonies; a concerto for his own instrument, the violin; a rich variety of choral settings and solo songs; a host of chamber music, including a piano trio, and no less than five string quartets; piano music and a whole series of large-scale works which we might want to categorise as choral cantatas but which he called "concert pieces".

There is little published information about Niels Gade available in English. Donald Macleod is joined by Dr. Colin Roth, a co-director of the Nordic Research Centre at the University of Sheffield. Across the week, Colin shares his own research into Gade's music and information garnered from the most detailed biography of the composer, which was published in Denmark in 2002 by Danish musicologist Inger Sørensen.

Today Donald Macleod and Colin Roth discuss how Gade responded musically to the prevailing artistic currents in Copenhagen.

Chamber Music from Vilabertran, Catalonia, Episode 1

The Schubertiade at the Monastery of Santa Maria de Vilabertran, Catalunya. This week Fiona Talkington presents music by Haydn, Schubert, Brahms and Shostakovich in performances recorded in the Romanesque church of Catalonia's best-preserved medieval monastery. The monastery traces its origins to 1069 and since 1997 its walls have echoed to the sound of chamber music as each year it hosts a prestigious music festival. Among the artists visiting in 2016 were the Casals Quartet, named after Catalonia's famous musical son, the brilliant pianist, Denis Kozhukhin and the rich soprano of Juliana Banse, one of the world's leading lieder singers. And new to the festival was the fresh-voiced young soprano, Anna Lucia Richter who can be heard today in a collection of songs by Schubert.

Niels Gade (1817-1890), Fame and Glory

Donald Macleod considers Mendelssohn's influence on his protégé, Niels Gade, with a complete performance of Gade's Octet, written some twenty years after Mendelssohn had written his.

Taken under his wing by Felix Mendelssohn, in his lifetime the Danish composer Niels Gade was a celebrated figure, who performed to great acclaim in Great Britain and across Europe. In his birthland Denmark, his association with Copenhagen's Music Society and his founding directorship of the Conservatory gave him a voice of influence within musical circles.

Between 1843 and 1848 Niels Gade was a highly respected musician, living and working in Leipzig. It was a period of diverse musical opportunity, which led to a series of major compositions.

London Philharmonic Orchestra - Edison Denisov, Berg, Shostakovich

Live from the Royal Festival Hall, London
Presented by Martin Handley

The London Philharmonic Orchestra perform Berg, Denisov and Shostakovich.

Edison Denisov: Symphony No.2
Berg: Violin Concerto

8.20: Interval

Shostakovich: Symphony No.15

Patricia Kopatchinskaja, violin
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Vladimir Jurowski, conductor

Berg dedicated his Violin Concerto 'to the memory of an angel', and a bottomless depth of personal loss lies beneath its gorgeous colours. Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs it between two final symphonies by two Soviet composers. Shostakovich's Fifteenth Symphony cloaks its sorrows in jokes, enigmas and pitch-black humour; two decades later, his friend Edison Denisov said farewell in a poignant, fantastical Second Symphony of his own. This is a rare British performance of a work that is close to Vladimir Jurowski's heart.

WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b08fj505)
Soil Stories Old and New

Matthew Sweet talks to poet and writer Elizabeth-Jane Burnett, environmental scientist, Jules Pretty and geologist, Andrew Scott, about Soil and Culture and Survival Stories
For some Soil is where they come from, for others it is an object of aesthetic beauty, for most of us it is the means by which we get what we need to live.
Poet and writer Elizabeth-Jane Burnett's forthcoming A Dictionary of Soil explores the lives lived within and through the soil of three fields which constitute the origins of her family's ancestral village.
Agroecology expert, Jules Pretty says Soil We Can Rebuild It and in an environmentally friendly way and it will continue to feed us.
Geologist Andrew Scott examines soils from deep time to discover what they can tell us about how the planet and life on Earth evolved.
They join Matthew Sweet to think through our developing relationship with the life-giving dirt beneath our feet and discuss whether a happy ending just might be possible.

Presenter: Matthew Sweet

Guests: Jules Pretty, Professor of Environment and Society, University of Essex author The Earth Only Endures (2007) and Agri-Culture (2002)
Andrew Scott author of ‘Fire on Earth: An Introduction’
Elizabeth-Jane Burnett, writer and poet

Producer: Jacqueline Smith

WED 22:45 The Essay (b08fj5g5)
The Other Auld Alliance, Episode 3

Scotland's historical relationship with France is often termed the Auld Alliance. By 1560 the Auld Alliance was more or less over but it has lingered on in the Scottish sentimental memory. Stuart Kelly argues that the real Auld Alliance was between Scotland and the "various principalities, kingdoms, cantons, duchies and electorates that would eventually comprise Germany and its German-speaking neighbours." In these essays he explores the relationship between Scotland and the German world as it has played out in literature, education, philosophy, the visual arts and historiography. In this essay he explores the career of Willa Muir who translated the work of Kafka, and other key German language writers, into English.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (b08fj5s0)
Late Junction Sessions, Tanya Tagaq and Ash Koosha

Verity Sharp hosts a session between Canadian Inuit throat singer Tanya Tagaq and Iranian producer and multi-instrumentalist Ash Koosha. Brought together for the first time for a brand new collaboration especially for Late Junction, the outcome combined the traditional music of their home countries alongside electronics, vocal samples and a slice of spontaneous improvisation.

Plus Bérangère Maximin's reimagined track from Véronique Vincent and Aksak Maboul's Ex-Futur Album, a new release by Scottish folk artist Alasdair Roberts and historic field recordings of diaphonic music from the Island of Krk, Yugoslavia.

Sarah 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 our daily musical challenge. Two pieces of music are played together. Can you identify them?

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the artist Maggi Hambling. In a career spanning nearly 50 years Maggi has made her mark in a number of fields, including painting, portraiture and sculpture. Her best-known piece is Scallop, which stands on Aldeburgh beach in Suffolk, and is dedicated to the town's most celebrated son, Benjamin Britten. Another of her sculptures, A Conversation with Oscar Wilde, was the first public monument dedicated to the playwright and novelist. Maggi's portraits include those of fellow artist Francis Bacon and blues singer George Melly and recently, she's produced a number of extremely visceral paintings of waves, the result of daily walks on the Suffolk coast. As well as discussing her life and work, Maggi shares some of her favourite classical music, including Purcell, Britten and the synaesthetic composer Deborah Pritchard.

10.30am
Music in Time: Classical
Today Sarah is in the classical period discovering how technical developments for the trumpet were brilliantly exploited by Johann Nepomuk Hummel.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08f5k0s)
Niels Gade (1817-1890), The Rising Sun

Donald Macleod introduces a complete performance of Gade's joyous Fourth Symphony.

Taken under his wing by Felix Mendelssohn, in his lifetime the Danish composer Niels Gade was a celebrated figure, who performed to great acclaim in Great Britain and across Europe. In his birthland Denmark, his association with Copenhagen's Music Society and his founding directorship of the Conservatory gave him a voice of influence within musical circles. He remains part of the Danish national consciousness, through the Wedding March from his ballet "Et folkesagn". It's one of the most popular picks for weddings. However, since his death, at the age of 73 in 1890, performances of his music have become all too infrequent leaving most of his considerable legacy largely unheard.

The 200th anniversary of Gade's birth provides a good reason to rediscover his music. Weddings aside, Niels Gade is the composer of no less than eight symphonies; a concerto for his own instrument, the violin; a rich variety of choral settings and solo songs; a host of chamber music, including a piano trio, and no less than five string quartets; piano music and a whole series of large-scale works which we might want to categorise as choral cantatas but which he called "concert pieces".

There is little published information about Niels Gade available in English. Donald Macleod is joined by Dr. Colin Roth, a co-director of the Nordic Research Centre at the University of Sheffield. Across the week, Colin shares his knowledge of both Gade's music and the most detailed biography of the composer, which was published in Denmark in 2002 by Danish musicologist Inger Sørensen.

As war was breaking out across Europe, in 1848 Niels Gade decided to return to Denmark. Today, Donald Macleod explores the reasons why Gade made this momentous decision, which, according to Dr. Colin Roth's studies, are quite frequently misrepresented.

The page Arturo has been instructed to watch over her, and in doing so, falls in love with her. Meanwhile, Enrico's wife, Queen Leonora is plotting against her hidden rival, and his aged tutor Clifford is determined to lead the mysterious mistress back to a life of virtue.

Then Rachmaninov's oft-quoted Second Piano Concerto. One of the most commonly heard pieces on the concert platform, despite its ferocious technical difficulties. These are tackled this evening by young Russian pianist Yevgeny Sudbin.
And the evening concludes with Rimsky-Korsakov's opulent Sheherazade, a work which in 1888 pushed the very limits of creative orchestration. A tuneful masterclass in orchestral sound-painting and tale-telling, taking as it does inspiration from stories of One Thousand and One Nights.

Today Donald Macleod and Colin Roth assess Niels Gade's contribution to the musical history of Denmark.

Philharmonia: Inspirations - Ligeti and Ravel

Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Philharmonia Orchestra give the UK premiere of Funeral Song, an orchestral work by the young Igor Stravinsky, assumed lost in the Russian Revolution but recently discovered at the St Petersburg Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory. The orchestra is then joined by the pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard for Gyorgy Ligeti's Piano Concerto, a late tour de force by the ever engaging Ligeti and one of the late 20th century's musical masterpieces. In the second half, Esa-Pekka Salonen brings to life Ravel's beautifully orchestrated love story of Daphnis and Chloé set among a magical Grecian world of nymphs, pirates and intervening gods.

concert recorded live at RFH 19 February 2017

Igor Stravinsky composed his Pogrebal'naya Pesnya (Funeral Song) in memory of his teacher, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. This 12-minute work was performed only once, in 1909, just before Stravinsky found international success with his Firebird. The score of Funeral Song was presumed to have been destroyed in the 1917 revolutions or the civil war that followed. Although Stravinsky remembered the work as one of his best early works, he could not later recall the music itself. Although searches for the lost score had been made over the years, it was only last year that an alert librarian spotted piles of previously hidden manuscripts in a backroom of the labyrinthine St Petersburg Conservatoire during a major refurbishment of the building. Stravinsky's orchestral parts were saved from the builder's skip and the orchestral score reconstructed.

Producer: Cecile Wright.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b08fj5gc)
The Other Auld Alliance, Episode 5

Scotland's historical relationship with France is often termed the Auld Alliance. By 1560 the Auld Alliance was more or less over but it has lingered on in the Scottish sentimental memory. Stuart Kelly argues that the real Auld Alliance was between Scotland and the "various principalities, kingdoms, cantons, duchies and electorates that would eventually comprise Germany and its German-speaking neighbours." In these essays he explores the relationship between Scotland and the German world as it has played out in literature, education, philosophy, the visual arts and historiography. In this essay Kelly addresses the philosophy of Martin Heidegger and his translator, the Scots philosopher John Macquarrie.
