SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b08k4jn5)
The Eye

Matthew Sweet explores the subject of the eye in cinema through an anthology of film music culminating in the music for Nicolas Pesce's new horror film "The Eyes of My Mother".

"The eye is a magical, paradoxical organ. Soft, vulnerable, worryingly penetrable - and yet an instrument of mastery and control." Matthew explores the many ways in which the eye takes a central role in film and features music from Polanski's "Macbeth"; Maurice Jarre's score for "Les Yeux Sans Visage"; Cocteau's "Orphee"; the 1981 and 2010 versions of "Clash Of the Titans"; Les Baxter's music for "The Man With The X-Ray Eyes"; "Clockwork Orange"; "The Parallax View"; "Nineteen Eighty-Four"; "Eye In The Sky"; "Lost Highway"; "Peeping Tom" and "The Eyes Of Laura Mars". The Classic Score of the Week is Bernard Herrmann's "Psycho".

SAT 21:45 Between the Ears (b08k4jyh)
Danu - Dead Flows the Don

'The old pagan gods, when ousted by Christianity, took refuge in the rivers, where they still dwell' - Old English saying

David Bramwell has a fascination and fear of water. He grew up by a water tower, close to the heart of Doncaster: a place of mystery and wonder to him, the highest building in the area, almost a kind of temple.

'We have wandered too far from some vital totem, something central to us that we must find our way back to, following a hair of meaning' - Alan Moore

With deep thought from cult author Alan Moore, the witches of Sheffield, ex-steel workers and the conservationists of Yorkshire, musician David Bramwell plunges into the river Don to celebrate its return to health and the revival of the worship of its goddess, Danu - the river's original name from pre-Roman times.

It's also an underwater musical experience for the listener... blending the sounds of the rivers, canals and streams of the Don, recorded with hydrophones, into new music, new sounds, with Bramwell's compositions.

Bramwell travels up the Don to its source, backwards in time, uncovering the history of its days as an industrial heartland, now a regenerated river - banked by forests of figs and swum through by deer.

He meets John Heaps who, as a teenager in the 1970s at the steel works, was instructed to throw cyanide in the river by the bucket-load; takes a boat with Professor Ian Rotherham, of Sheffield Hallam University, who guides him through the decaying, yet reviving industrial landscape of the city; hunts fresh fish with river expert Chris Firth of the Don Catchment River Trust; stares up at Vulcan on the Town Hall roof, the harsh overlord of industry, with folklorist and lecturer David Clarke; and hears from witches Anwen and Lynne Harling (also an archaeologist, handily), trying to bring back recognition for the goddess of the river.

But this is also a mystical journey - searching out the 'spirit of this dark and lonely water', in an attempt to come to peace with Bramwell's own fear, perhaps to atone for the wrongs committed to Danu by Vulcan, in the name of progress and industrialisation.

Going under, with Between the Ears.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall

Music and words performed, written and presented by David Bramwell.

SAT 22:15 Hear and Now (b08k4k6r)
Cut and Splice 2017, Episode 1

Robert Worby introduces the first of two programmes from Cut & Splice, the two-day festival of experimental music and sound art which this year was curated and performed by the new-music ensemble Distractfold. The event took place earlier this month and was staged at Hallé St Peter's, a Grade II-listed deconsecrated church in the former industrial district of Ancoats, Manchester.

Distractfold's programming aims to reveal the hidden sonorities within instruments and objects through processing, and explore the temporal and spatial dislocation of sound through loudspeakers. Tonight we hear acoustic and spatially diffused electroacoustic works by Steven Kazuo Takasugi, Denis Smalley, Fabrice Fitch, Helena Gough and Mauricio Pauly. And from nearby Hallé at St Michael's we listen in on some of the sound installations that were on offer throughout the weekend including works by Adam Basanta and Christina Kubisch, whose Electrical Walks has also been specially recreated as a binaural online experience for BBC Radio 3 listeners.

Steven Kazuo Takasugi: The Man Who Couldn't Stop Laughing - music theatre for amplified quartet and playback (2012-14, UK Premiere)
Denis Smalley: Empty Vessels - spatially diffused electroacoustic work (1997)
Fabrice Fitch: Agricola IXe - for bass clarinet and string trio (2016)
Helena Gough: Silt - spatially diffused electroacoustic work (2007)
Mauricio Pauly: Charred Edifice Shining - for amplified string trio with performative electronics (2017)

Cut and Splice is a partnership between BBC Radio 3 and Sound and Music, the national charity for new music.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b05sxy5j)
Tim Rice

Tim Rice has written the lyrics for some of the most successful musicals of our generation: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat ... Jesus Christ Superstar ... Evita ... For 45 years he has been creating hit songs, collaborating first and famously with Andrew Lloyd Webber, then with Abba, Elton John, Freddy Mercury and Madonna. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, thanks to the success of his songs in Disney movies The Lion King, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. A three-time Oscar winner, he has been knighted for services to music.

In Private Passions, he talks to Michael Berkeley about the process of lyric-writing, about why it's an extraordinary experience to work with Elton John, and about what it is that makes a successful song lyric. He also reveals that his early ambition was to be a pop star, and that he started out as a singer - in fact, he recorded a single.

Music choices include a satirical operetta by Offenbach, Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Vaughan Williams's London Symphony, The Swan of Tuonela by Sibelius, Malcolm Arnold's Peterloo Overture and Britten's arrangement of the folk song The Plough Boy. And Tim Rice ends by revealing which is his favourite musical of all - music his father introduced him to as a boy: My Fair Lady.

Brevity

Tom Service ponders brevity in music - how short you can go? From Beethoven bagatelles to Webern's chamber miniatures, short doesn't need to mean lightweight. Short pieces may be intricate as a netsuke or as simple as a sonic doodle. Or suggest a fragment of something larger. Tom talks to sonic artist JLIAT, who has made a piece lasting 1/44100 of a second. But he's thinking of shorter pieces.

Clockwise

Clockwise: The award-winning actors Toby Jones and Romola Garai explore our obsession with clocks and timekeeping. The imperious shrilling of the alarm clock; the way ticking sometimes sounds like fate approaching; the moments elongated or abbreviated by emotion: the way the imagination tends to go blank before the notion of eternity: these are all part of a meditation on why and how we measure time - from Handel's pieces for musical clocks to St Augustine's Confessions ... and all in the time it takes your average chronometer to tick from five thirty in the evening to six forty-five.

Hitting the High Notes

The story of jazz in the post-war era is one of revolution and rebellion, as musicians like Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk and Dizzy Gillespie re-invented the genre, giving birth to bebop.

But alongside the music, something else emerged in this period: a mini-epidemic of heroin use among jazz musicians which broke out in the mid-1940s, as the drug became more freely available in cities like New York, Philadelphia and Chicago.

The most notorious musician associated with drugs of addiction, then as of now, was also the greatest exponent of modern jazz - Charlie Parker. Parker's story, with its heady combination of drugs and music, is hard to ignore. But one man's story isn't science, and what's clear is that the use of heroin was much more widespread in the jazz community, involving hundreds of musicians as well as the fans of this new, modern style of music.

In their attempt to understand and tackle the rising problem of drug addiction and the moral panic that ensued, the US Government targeted and arrested many jazz musicians. But instead of sending them to conventional prisons, many ended up at an institution known as the Narcotic Farm, located in Lexington, Kentucky. Part prison, part hospital, it was the first attempt anywhere in the world to simultaneously treat addiction as a health problem, whilst studying the science behind it. Though it practiced an enlightened approach to therapy, it also carried out what today would be considered highly unethical experiments on patients, which even included re-addicting them in order to study the symptoms of withdrawal.

The roll-call of jazz musicians who spent time at Lexington is astonishing: Sonny Rollins, Elvin Jones, Chet Baker, Lee Morgan, Sonny Stitt, Bennie Green, Jackie MacLean, band leader and trumpeter Red Rodney ... the list goes on. What's perhaps even more surprising is that the doctors and the researchers who were at Lexington could have viewed jazz as part of the problem - as part of a number of elements that predisposed people to become heroin-addicted. Instead they chose to look at it as a potentially therapeutic activity. Musicians were given instruments and rooms where they could play for up to six hours a day. Collaboration was actively encouraged. As a result, bands formed - jazz super groups - who performed regularly in the prison's auditorium to enthusiastic audiences of patients, medical staff and guards. The shows became so famous that one band was invited onto the Johnny Carson Show on US television. Sadly the tape was destroyed a few years later - seemingly the only recording ever made.

In this programme, Dr Sally Marlow, an addiction researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King's College London, examines the relationship between heroin and jazz in the post-war period and explores its impact on creativity, therapy and addiction science both then and now. She hears from musicians of that period, travels to Lexington and discovers that a recording of a 'Narco' concert, made by a member of staff in the late 1960s, has survived.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b08k4s1p)
A Streetcar Named Desire

Anne Marie Duff leads a stellar cast in a new landmark production of Tennessee Williams's iconic play, telling the story of a catastrophic confrontation between fantasy and reality, embodied in the characters of Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski.

Blanche DuBois arrives unexpectedly on the doorstep of her sister Stella and her explosive brother-in-law Stanley. Over the course of one hot and steamy New Orleans summer, Blanche's fragile façade slowly crumbles, wreaking havoc on Stella and Stanley's already turbulent relationship. Embodying the turmoil and drama of a changing nation, A Streetcar Named Desire strips Williams's tortured characters of their illusions, leaving a wake of destruction in their path.

Tennessee Williams's 1947 play is justifiably one of the most loved and well-known stage plays of the 20th century. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award in 1948, and picked up four Oscars when it transferred to the screen with largely the same cast three years later. When it made its London debut, the Public Morality Council denounced it as "salacious and pornographic". Not coincidentally, the production was booked solid for nine months.

Anne-Marie Duff (Blanche) is an Olivier-winning actress, who will soon be appearing in DC Moore's 'Common' at the National Theatre. Matthew Needham's (Stanley) previous work includes the eponymous role in Mark Ravenhill's 'Candide' at the RSC. Pippa Bennett-Warner (Stella) recently appeared in The Beaux' Stratagem at the National Theatre, and in River on BBC One. John Heffernan's (Mitch) work includes titular roles in 'Macbeth' at the Young Vic Theatre and 'Oppenheimer' with the RSC.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06flh06)
Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943), Beginnings

This week Donald Macleod explores Rachmaninov the pianist-composer, focusing on his concertante piano works. Today, a student work he revisited nearly three decades later: his First Piano Concerto.

Sergey Rachmaninov's childhood was hardly typical. Born into a wealthy family with significant estates, his comfortable nine-year-old life was disrupted by his feckless father's financial collapse. The estates were sold off and the family moved to St Petersburg, but unsurprisingly his parents' marriage buckled under the strain and they separated. When Rachmaninov, now 12 and already a talented pianist, failed his school exams he was packed off to Moscow to be a live-in piano student of the aristocratic and authoritarian Nikolay Zverev, who had young Sergey and two fellow victims practising from six in the morning. In time Rachmaninov progressed to the Moscow Conservatoire and fell out with Zverev - but luckily in the meantime he had fallen in with his cousins, the Satins, whose country estate at Ivanovka, 18 hours by train from Moscow, became first a haven then a home, and the place where Rachmaninov would compose most of his music. His First Piano Concerto was one of the earliest pieces he wrote there - and it was also one of the last he wrote before leaving Russia for good 26 years later. As he said at the time, "I have rewritten my First Concerto; it is really good now. All the youthful freshness is there, and yet it plays itself so much more easily."

Festival 2017, Doing Time/Confinement

In our fast moving, busy world it is hard - if not impossible - to imagine what it would be like to be incarcerated on our own. Captured in Beirut while working as an envoy for the Archbishop of Canterbury, Terry Waite spent five years as a hostage mostly held in solitary confinement. The writer Erwin James served 20 years of a life sentence in prison before his release in 2004. They discuss the experience of isolation with Dr Cleo Van Velsen, a Consultant Psychiatrist in Forensic Psychotherapy. Chaired by Free Thinking presenter Anne McElvoy.

Terry Waite is a humanitarian campaigner and author. He remains actively involved with hostages and their families, as well as working with those on the margins of society. His latest books are Out of the Silence: Memories, Poems, Reflections and a 25th Anniversary Edition of his memoir Taken on Trust.

Dr Cleo van Velsen is a Consultant Psychiatrist in Forensic Psychotherapy with extensive experience in the assessment, management and treatment of those suffering with personality difficulties, violence and trauma.

Erwin James is a Guardian columnist and freelance writer and a trustee of the Prison Reform Trust. He is the author of A Life Inside: a Prisoner's Notebook and his new book, Redeemable: a Memoir of Darkness and Hope.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead.

Producer: Jacqueline Smith.

Free Thinking 2017, Faith, Fire and the Family

From 1941 to 1968 Catherine Fletcher's grandfather Donald Hudson was a missionary in India. Catherine tells his story during those turbulent years and reflects on the way British people with family history in India understand that past - in this the anniversary year of the end of colonial India.

Originally from Yorkshire, Donald Hudson arrived in Dhaka, now in Bangladesh, to find a city in chaos amid communal riots. He stayed for two years and then moved to one of the most significant British missionary institutions in India, the Baptist Missionary College at Serampore, outside Kolkata, where he was based through famine and then Partition in 1948.

Catherine Fletcher is a Radio 3 New Generation Thinker from Swansea University.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.

Rob's guest this week is the American chef, author and TV presenter Ken Hom. Whilst studying at Berkeley University, where he undertook studies in History of Art and French History, Ken began to give cooking lessons to fund his education. He soon realised that he wanted to make it his career and started teaching at a school for professional chefs in San Francisco. During his career Ken has published over 35 best-selling books on cookery, presented TV shows including Ken Hom's Chinese Cookery and Take on the Takeaway, and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest authorities on Asian cooking. In 2009 he was appointed an honorary OBE for 'services to culinary arts'. As well as discussing his life and work, Ken has chosen a selection of his favourite classical music.

Znaider's performances and recordings regularly earn critical acclaim across the globe; they include accounts of violin concertos by Elgar, Korngold, Prokofiev and Nielsen - all of which feature this week on Essential Classics. As well as maintaining a busy career as a violin virtuoso, Znaider is passionate about supporting the next generation of musical talent, and spent ten years as Founder and Artistic Director of the annual Nordic Music Academy summer school.

Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943), Back from the Brink

This week Donald Macleod explores Rachmaninov the pianist-composer, focusing on his concertante piano works. Today, the work that brought him global fame: his Second Piano Concerto.

In March 1897, what should have been a triumphant occasion for Rachmaninov - the première of his First Symphony - turned into an unmitigated catastrophe. An under-rehearsed orchestra under the baton of a poor and, according to some accounts, inebriated conductor was enough to disadvantage the work so seriously that its composer was plunged into silence for the next three years. An encounter with the novelist Tolstoy was arranged, in the rather surprising hope that the surly old curmudgeon might be able to set the diffident young composer back on track. After that failed, the services of Dr Nikolai Dahl, a music-loving hypnotherapist, were called upon. Whatever Dahl did, it did the trick, and Rachmaninov's writer's block was spectacularly broken with his Second Piano Concerto, which quickly became a major international success.

Festival 2017, The Speed of Revolution

Three leading historians, Bettany Hughes, Sir Richard J Evans and John Hall join Free Thinking presenter Philip Dodd to consider tumultuous times and how we make sense of sweeping change from classical times, through empire building and the industrial revolution to the present day. True revolutions are rare game-changers in the slow unravelling of the human story. Others fizzle out like small showy rockets, all light and no heat. But how obvious is it at the time ?

Dr Bettany Hughes is well known as a TV and radio broadcaster, an award-winning historian and author specialising in ancient and medieval history and culture. Her books include Helen of Troy, The Hemlock Cup and, most recently, Istanbul: a Tale of Three Cities.

Sir Richard J Evans is an academic and historian, best known for his research on the history of Germany in the 19th and 20th centuries. President of Wolfson College in Cambridge, his most recent books are The Pursuit of Power: Europe 1815-1914, The Third Reich in History and Memory and Altered Pasts: Counterfactual in History.

Professor John Hall is IAS Fellow at University College, Durham University (Jan - March 2017). Normally based at McGill University in Montreal, Professor Hall is currently writing about Nations, States and Empires. His books include The Importance of Being Civil, The World of States, Powers and Liberties:The Causes and Consequences of the Rise of the West.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b08j9x3c)
Free Thinking 2017, The Magic Years

Matthew Smith, a New Generation Thinker, goes deep into the American Psychiatric Association archives, where lies an unpublished historical manuscript entitled The Magic Years. Written during the early 1970s, it eulogised the giant strides of post-war American psychiatry made in this period of hope and promise when even the complete eradication of mental illness was thought possible. As a medical historian Matthew argues that, while psychiatrists today might dismiss The Magic Years - and the science behind it - as misguided or naïve, it actually has much to teach us.

New Generation Thinker Matthew Smith is from the University of Strathclyde.

Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943), The New World

This week Donald Macleod explores Rachmaninov the pianist-composer, focusing on his concertante piano works. Today, his epic and fiendishly difficult Third Piano Concerto.

Rachmaninov's songs are probably the least-known part of his output, but they're well worth exploring. The Opus 26 set was written at the behest of Mariya Kerzina, who with her wealthy lawyer husband Arkady founded the 'Circle of Russian Music Lovers in Moscow', which grew into an important and influential sponsor of new music in the first decade of the 20th century. By the time he wrote that set of songs, Rachmaninov was, like everyone else, becoming increasingly disturbed by the political unrest he could see all around him. In 1906 he took his family on an extended break in Italy in the hope that things at home might begin to settle down again. An invitation to tour America offered a further reason to stay away but for the moment, family illness prevented him from accepting. Three years later, when a second invitation came his way, he said yes. He wrote his Third Piano Concerto specially for that tour. The response was respectful rather than ecstatic, although the second performance, under the baton of none other than Gustav Mahler, prompted a warmer response from the critics. Only when Vladimir Horowitz took up the concerto in the 1930s did it begin to achieve its current popularity in the concert hall.

Sathnam Sanghera, Judy Wajcman, Griselda Togobo and Robert Colvile join Radio 3 presenter Matthew Sweet to look at the history of the workplace from factory floor to hot desk to the gig economy and debate whether the merging of workplace and home creates more stress.

Bosses have always monitored and changed our working day, clocking staff in and out the factory, analyzing productivity through time and motion studies, using remote monitoring, introducing flexible working and "logging on later."

Sathnam Sanghera is a journalist and award-winning author of Marriage Material: A Novel and The Boy with the Topknot: A Memoir of Love, Secrets and Lies in Wolverhampton. Before becoming a writer he (among other things) worked at a burger chain, a hospital laundry, a market research firm, a sewing factory and a literacy project in New York.

Judy Wajcman is a Professor of Society at LSE and the author of Pressed for Time: The Acceleration of Life in Digital Capitalism .

Griselda Togobo is an entrepreneur, engineer, chartered accountant and the head of Forward Ladies, an organisation which aims to help companies maximise the potential of their female staff.

Free Thinking 2017, England's First European

John Gallagher, New Generation Thinker, marks the 400th anniversary of the publication of what might be the greatest, but littlest-known, book of travels of early modern England. Fynes Moryson was a young fellow of a Cambridge college when he left on a journey to Jerusalem and back. His monumental book 'An Itinerary' is a colourful, funny and touching account of one man's curious journey, meeting bandits in northern Germany, disguising himself as a Catholic Italian in order to see Rome and burying his brother's body by the side of the road on his return.

John Gallagher's Essay brings to life one of the great travel accounts of any period which includes detailed instructions to English travellers on how best to disguise themselves when travelling through Catholic Europe.

Late Junction Sessions, PC music meets early music - Danny L Harle and Pawel Siwczak

Find out what happened when PC Music met Early Music, in a Late Junction Collaboration Session recorded by pop producer Danny L Harle and early keyboard specialist Pawel Siwczak.

Harle is the chart-friendly musical mind behind the Caroline Polachek collaboration 'Ashes of Love', and 'Super Natural' with Carly Rae Jepsen. Strongly associated with the influential dance collective and label PC Music, he has also remixed for Christine and the Queens, Panda Bear and Tinashe.

Pawel Siwczak is an award-winning solo harpsichordist, fortepianist and historical keyboard specialist.

For this session Late Junction asked Harle to indulge his secret love of early and baroque music, and write scores for harpsichord and electronics. He and Pawel Siwczak had a day to arrange, develop, improvise around and record these in the legendary Maida Vale studios.

Also on the programme, Nick Luscombe plays hard-hitting electronics from Leeds producer Bambooman, laid-back latin bossa from Chicano Batman and Krautrock noise Czech style from B4.

Thursday - Rob Cowan with Ken Hom

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: listen to the clues and identify a mystery musical person.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the American chef, author and TV presenter Ken Hom. Whilst studying at Berkeley University, where he undertook studies in History of Art and French History, Ken began to give cooking lessons to fund his education. He soon realised that he wanted to make it his career and started teaching at a school for professional chefs in San Francisco. During his career Ken has published over 35 best-selling books on cookery, presented TV shows including Ken Hom's Chinese Cookery and Take on the Takeaway, and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest authorities on Asian cooking. In 2009 he was appointed an honorary OBE for 'services to culinary arts'. As well as discussing his life and work, Ken has chosen a selection of his favourite classical music.

10.30am
Music in Time: Modern
Today Rob's in the Modern period with a work by one of music's most eccentric characters: Erik Satie. Famous for his Gymnopédies and Gnossiennes, much of Satie's work is infused with an anarchic, Bohemian spirit, not least his madcap ballet of 1917, Parade.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences between two interpretations of "Il mio tesoro", an aria from Mozart's opera Don Giovanni - one by Jussi Björling and one by John McCormack.

11am
Artist of the Week: Nikolaj Znaider
Rob's Artist of the Week is the violinist and conductor Nikolaj Znaider. Feted in particular for the quality of his tone and his musical sensitivity, Znaider plays a Guarneri del Gesu violin, built in 1741 and previously played by the legendary violinist Fritz Kreisler. Znaider's performances and recordings regularly earn critical acclaim across the globe; they include accounts of violin concertos by Elgar, Korngold, Prokofiev and Nielsen - all of which feature this week on Essential Classics. As well as maintaining a busy career as a violin virtuoso, Znaider is passionate about supporting the next generation of musical talent, and spent ten years as Founder and Artistic Director of the annual Nordic Music Academy summer school.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06flp2c)
Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943), Flight

This week Donald Macleod explores Rachmaninov the pianist-composer, focusing on his concertante piano works. Today, a work that failed to reflect the spirit of its time: his Fourth Piano Concerto.

Sergey Rachmaninov spent the first two-thirds of his life in Russia. In the fateful year of 1917, at the age of 44, he realized that he must now uproot himself and his family and flee abroad. Someone from his landowning background would not have fared well under the new regime - perhaps he wouldn't have survived at all. As luck would have it he received an invitation to play a concert in Stockholm in the new year, and despite the chaos at home he managed to get permission from the authorities to travel.

He made the journey with his family, taking only what could be carried in their luggage. They made the final leg, across the Swedish border, in an open sled during a blizzard, arriving in Stockholm on Christmas Eve. Stockholm, however, was to be only a temporary resting-place. Some years earlier he had undertaken a concert tour of America, and now he decided that America was where he had the best chance of carving out a living as a concert pianist. Before the year was done, the Rachmaninovs were chugging across the Atlantic on a Norwegian steamer, arriving in New York almost a year after they had fled Russia.

Rachmaninov's first American work was the ill-fated Fourth Piano Concerto, which received a critical panning after its première and fared no better in Europe in a hastily revised version. Perhaps it just seemed too old-fashioned for the Roaring Twenties. Rachmaninov made one further revision, in 1941, but the piece still failed to capture the imagination of the concert-going public. In today's programme, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli makes an electrifying case for the work. Rachmaninov's final piece for solo piano, the Variations on a Theme of Corelli, inhabits a totally different world from the concerto. Iit has its moments of passion, but overall it's cooler, more restrained, wistful - subdued even. Rachmaninov related how in performance he would make impromptu cuts in the work, depending on the amount of audience coughing.

The courtesan Thaïs gradually finds spiritual peace as she leaves her former life of unrestrained sensuality while the religious zealot Athanaël slowly descends into a hell of unbridled lust. It contains the famous "Meditation." This concert performance from Barcelona's opera house, the Liceu, has a cast headed by Placido Domingo and Nino Machaidze

BBC National Orchestra of Wales - Strauss, Mozart and Beethoven

Live from Cheltenham Town Hall
Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Jun Markl returns to the BBC National Orchestra of Wales for a programme of Strauss, Mozart and Beethoven. 'Death and Transfiguration' depicts a great artist's journey from earthly life to everlasting bliss in a powerful and radiant tone poem. Like Jun Markl, Alice Sara Ott is also of joint German and Japanese decent. She's the soloist in Mozart's sublime C-major concerto, No. 21, which has appeared on film alongside James Bond. Beethoven's life-enhancing 6th Symphony, the Pastoral, is just as radical as its more famous sibling No. 5, celebrating nature in its awesome power and beauty.

Strauss: Death and Transfiguration
Mozart: Piano Concerto No 21 in C major, K467

8.25 During the interval, Nicola Heywood Thomas talks to tonight's soloist, Alice Sara Ott, about fame and fashion, and listens to her new recordings of Grieg - beyond the Piano Concerto.

THU 22:00 Free Thinking (b08jb15g)
Festival 2017, The Time of Your Life

The former Health Minister, now broadcaster and writer, Edwina Currie; the journalist and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer; and the English teacher and columnist Lola Okolosie discuss the different times of our lives with Free Thinking presenter Anne McElvoy.

Recent scientific research has found that women have the time of their lives at the age of 34. Later though, as they juggle parenthood and work they are at their most stressed. But, by the age of 58 they start to get their life-work balance sorted out. With more time to relax and no babies on the horizon life looks better. And, with an average life expectancy of 82.9 years, perhaps women may have time to enjoy their new lives.

Edwina Currie was a Conservative MP for 14 years before retiring in 1988. Since then she has presented TV and radio programmes, appeared on Strictly Come Dancing and as the Wicked Queen in pantomime. She has been described as 'a brash and energetic life force'. Her books include Diaries 1987-1992 and novels including The Ambassador, Chasing Men, This Honourable House, and A Parliamentary Affair.

Miranda Sawyer began her career writing for Smash Hits and now writes for newspapers and magazines including The Observer. She has interviewed arts figures for BBC Two's Culture Show, and presented programmes on 6 Music, BBC Radio 4 and podcasts. Her new book Out of Time explores her midlife crisis.

Lola Okolosie is an English teacher and regular columnist for The Guardian on race, politics, education and feminism. She is editor-at-large for Media Diversified, an online publishing platform.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.

Producer: Craig Smith.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b08j9x3h)
Free Thinking 2017, Creating Modern India

New Generation Thinker Preti Taneja, Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow at Warwick University, on the creation of modern India.

How did a modernist style develop in India between the 1900s and the 1950s? Preti Taneja, who grew up in Letchworth Garden City, traces the way the Garden City Movement inspired the work of Edwin Lutyens in his reshaping of her parents' New Delhi. The first generation of post-Independence architects built on this legacy, drawing also from Le Corbusier, who designed India's first post-partition planned city, Chandigarh, with its famous 'open hand' sculpture; and from Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Gropius, to create some of the most iconic public buildings across India today.
In art, something similar was happening: painter MF Hussain and a group of fellow radicals wanting to break away from Indian traditions and make an international statement. They formed The Progressive Artists Group in December 1947, just months after Partition.

Preti Taneja's essay explores this cultural re-imagining of the new nation, when architects and artists tried to come to terms with India's political and aesthetic history, looking forward to a future they could design, build and express themselves: one that was meant to shape human behaviour for the better.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.
New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics who can turn their research into radio.

FRI 00:00 Late Junction (b08jv9p4)
Stephin Merritt

Magnetic Fields frontman Stephin Merritt has just completed a 50-song concept album, for which he wrote one song about each year of his life so far. Nonetheless, he has found time to put together a Late Junction Mixtape too, following on the heels of recent compilers Genesis P-Orridge, Beatrice Dillon, and Fenriz. Merritt's mix is bookended by atonal, instrumental oddities, but the meat of it comes from his love of unlikely cover versions. Featured artists include Klaus Nomi covering Lou Christie and Mrs. Miller covering Cole Porter.

Sergei Rachmaninov (1873-1943), Indian Summer

This week Donald Macleod explores Rachmaninov the pianist-composer, focusing on his concertante piano works. Today, a late masterpiece: the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

After his flight to America in the wake of the Russian Revolution, Rachmaninov never again returned to his homeland. He did make a partial return to Europe, though; in 1933 he was able to move into his newly built villa on the shores of Lake Lucerne, where he would spend summers until the outbreak of World War Two. The serenity of the Villa Senar (named after SErgei and NAtalya Rachmaninov), in tandem with the not unwelcome surprise of the Steinway concert grand (a housewarming gift from the company) that was waiting for him when he arrived there, got Rachmaninov's creative juices flowing again, and the following year, on Swiss soil, he wrote one of his finest and most popular pieces - a set of 24 variations on the famous 24th Caprice for solo violin by Paganini. Fast-forward six years and Rachmaninov is back in the USA, recuperating from a small operation in a secluded house he had rented on Long Island. Here, in not much more than a month, he wrote his Symphonic Dances - "My last spark", he called them - a wonderfully affirmative swansong from a composer famous for his lugubrious manner.

BBC Concert Orchestra at Cecil Sharp House

Live from Cecil Sharp House in London, home to the English Folk Dance and Song Society. Spiro and the BBC Concert Orchestra share this concert celebrating folk music new and old, including the world premiere of a BBC Commission from Spiro's Jane Harbour, which includes members of the BBC Singers. Presented by Verity Sharp

Spiro: Solo set

INTERVAL: As He Roved Out
In the interval of this concert celebrating the relationship between the English Folk Dance and Song Society and the BBC Verity Sharp presents 'As He Roved Out', a profile of Peter Kennedy who worked for both organisations. Kennedy travelled far and wide collecting songs and tunes from traditional musicians, amassing hundreds of recordings that are now in the British Library. He was remarkably industrious and enthusiastic, revitalising local traditions, playing for village dances and working on famous radio programmes such as 'As I Roved Out'. His methods and manner, though, meant he became a controversial figure, too. Verity Sharp assesses Kennedy's achievement and probes the nature of the man, with contributions from those who knew him, including David Attenborough, Shirley Collins, Malcolm Taylor (who for three decades ran the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library) and Janet Topp Fargion - Curator of World and Traditional Music at the British Library. We also hear several of the remarkable recordings Peter Kennedy made.

Producer: Julian May

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b08k52h5)
Free Thinking - 'Englishnesses'

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b08j9x3k)
Free Thinking 2017, Killing Time in Imperial Japan

Christopher Harding explores the Tokyo of a century ago, the bustling, cosmopolitan capital of a growing empire, where the meaning of 'time' was hotly contested. Critics attacked the relentless 'clock time' of new factories and businesses and the 'leisure time' of youngsters who favoured cafes or poetry rather than exerting themselves in empire-building. Buddhist thinkers and folklorists claimed that Japan must rediscover its natural sense of time as seasonal and cyclical, rather than mechanical.

New Generation Thinker Christopher Harding contemplates the way these attempts at escape became useful fodder for Japan's militarist ideologues - working for the Emperor, his palace tucked away amongst the trees in central Tokyo, whose own sense of time stretched back into myth and from there into divinity.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead.
New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics who can turn their research into radio.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.
