SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08ky89n)
Mariss Jansons: How to build a concert hall

Tom Service talks to the renowned Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons about why Munich needs a new concert hall, which the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, his orchestra, is building, as part of an extended programme, including education in the local community; also about the importance of culture in today's life, and how a new balance, he argues, is required between the material and the spiritual life, and about how his education and his early years in Soviet Russia, where excellence in music was pursued at all costs, inform his art. Also, as we reach the first centenary of his death, a celebration of Scott Joplin, one of the most acclaimed of all Afro-American composers, dubbed 'The King of Ragtime Writers'. Susan Curtis, biographer of Joplin, explains why was he so important in the creation of an 'American music', while Jazz maestro and composer Julian Joseph, sitting at the piano, explores and illustrates how ragtime opened the door to Jazz. And we go behind the New York Philharmonic's education programme, more than five decades old now, as the ensemble set up camp in London for a short residency at the Barbican Centre, which includes concerts for kids. We talk to the Vice-President of Education at the NY Phil, Ted Wiprud, and to Jon Deak, who set up the 'Very Young Composers' scheme some 20 years ago. Also, we hear some of the compositions the scheme has helped to produce.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b08ky8b1)
Second Side Up - a Life Captured in Radio

Second Side Up is the longest-running radio show that never was - the story of a life recorded to tape and edited into weekly radio show instalments.
For over four decades, Mark Talbot recorded scenes from his life and used them to create a cassette radio show, which he called Second Side Up. Complete with music, interviews and phone-ins, Second Side Up sounded like professional work, but not a single episode was ever broadcast. The tapes were distributed to a tiny network of friends and family, a unique correspondence that came to define Mark's life.
The resulting archive of tapes is a unique autobiography in radio-show format.
Between the songs, we meet the people in Mark's life; we hear him falling in love, growing old, mourning the death of the analogue era as his chosen medium becomes obsolete. Through all the changes, one thing remains constant - Mark's addiction to producing Second Side Up.

Jonathan Swain

Verdi's Aida is the focus of this week's Building a Library and Jonathan Swain plays a major portion of the selected recording. But this prompts an exploration of how Egypt and the Nile have been treated in music by composers as different as Berlioz, Arroyo, Debussy and David Fanshawe. The week's young artist is pianist Julien Brocal and the neglected classic is Tippett's Concerto for Double String Orchestra.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08kyb3m)
Thomas Ostermeier

Michael Berkeley talks to the director Thomas Ostermeier about his musical passions.

Thomas is the outstanding German theatre director of his generation, known for his gritty realism, and for working with a close and consistent ensemble of actors. He's been a champion of young British playwrights such as Sarah Kane and Mark Ravenhill, as well as a radical interpreter of the classics.

In 1999 - at the age of only 32 - Thomas was made Director at Berlin's prestigious Schaubühne Theatre, and his productions are staged and celebrated world-wide. He was awarded a Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the 2011 Venice Biennale.

In London he's developed a close and productive relationship with The Barbican.

No one who has seen it will ever forget his celebrated production of Hamlet, a truly visceral experience, with blood, drunkenness and actors rolling around in - and even eating - the soil that covered the stage.

Thomas chooses music by 20th-century composers including Shostakovich, Bartok, John Adams, and John Cage and he talks to Michael about his passion for Shakespeare, how he chooses music for his productions, and how difficult it is to get his actors to keep their clothes on.

The Mannheim School

Lucie Skeaping looks at some of the music penned at the court of Mannheim in the latter half of the 18th century, which had such a thriving and influential orchestra. Composers such as Johann Stamitz, Franz Xaver Richter, Christian Cannabich, Carl Stamitz and Franz Danzi really took the symphonic genre by the horns, helped to shape it into what we now think of as the Classical symphony, and, as such, were a huge influence on the likes of Mozart and Haydn.

Who Wrote the First Folk Song?

Who wrote the first folk song? It's an age old question, these tunes that everyone knows which have been passed down from generation to generation... Where do they come from?
Enlisting the help of ethnomusicologist and folk singer Dr Fay Hield and folklore expert Steve Roud, Tom Service embarks on a quest to the very origins of music. It's a journey that takes him back in time from modern-day folk clubs to the origins of the species (via rural Lincolnshire in the early 20th century).

Literary Pursuits, Jean Rhys: Wide Sargasso Sea

Sarah Dillon is a literary detective, hunting down the story behind the story of the writing of great works. Jean Rhys was the author of four novels in the late 20s and 30s when she disappeared off the literary map and was presumed dead. She spectacularly re-appeared with the publication of Wide Sargasso Sea, telling the back story of the first Mrs Rochester from Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. Published in 1966 when the author was in her 70s, the novel became an instant classic.

Sarah Dillon goes on a journey to find out why there was a 27-year gap between novels: she travels to the British Library to look at Rhys's original notebooks; talks to Carole Angier, Jean's biographer; and goes to meet Jean's publisher Diana Athill.

The struggle to bring the book to completion touches on poverty, death and a passionate desire for perfection.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b08kyb9b)
Pericles

A gripping new production of one of Shakespeare's later and least performed plays, Pericles, in which murder, incest, intrigue, shipwrecks and prostitution tear King Pericles' family apart.

Adapted for radio and directed by acclaimed British theatre writer/director Neil Bartlett with a multicultural cast including opera legend Sir Willard White as Gower, the RSC's rising star Paapa Essiedu as Pericles and renowned British film actress Adjoa Andoh as Dionyza. A Greek chorus trio provides an innovative way to deliver pirates, fishermen, knights and villains galore.

Pericles is a problem play on stage given the long script, wordy passages, multiple shipwrecks and sea storms, and large number of locations. With a pacey, music-rich new adaptation for radio by Neil Bartlett and the rich, beguiling tones of Willard White as Gower, Pericles becomes a lively, shocking and moving roller-coaster journey, perfect for radio drama, and reclaims Pericles as one of Shakespeare's plays definitely worthy of more frequent productions.

Monday - Sarah Walker with David Hepworth

9am
Sarah sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain, and as Radio 3 visits Hull for its Uproot festival, Sarah will also be featuring classical repertoire throughout the week reflecting folk music from around the world

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

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the music journalist and broadcaster David Hepworth. David has launched and written for many of the most successful pop-culture magazines of the past 30 years, including Smash Hits, More, Heat, Q and The Word. He was a presenter of BBC2's The Old Grey Whistle Test and co-presented the BBC's coverage of the global charity concert Live Aid. As well as discussing his life's work and reflecting on popular culture, David also shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Copland, Walton and Philip Glass.

Music in Time: Romantic
Today Sarah's in the Romantic period exploring the rise of the natural world as a source of inspiration for composers. She'll share a selection of songs by Schubert that use rustic imagery.

11am
Artist of the Week: Håkan Hardenberger
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. During three decades of performing and recording, he's established a reputation for both virtuosity and versatility. His interpretations of classic repertoire such as the concertos of Haydn and Hummel have become benchmarks for the next generation, and Sarah has selected these alongside Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.2 in F major, widely perceived as one of the most challenging pieces in the trumpet repertoire. But, Hardenberger is also committed to championing contemporary works. Sarah's selections include Pärt's Concerto Piccolo on B-A-C-H and Takemitsu's Paths - both of which were dedicated to, and premiered, by him - as well as H K Gruber's 3 MOB Pieces.

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko, conductor

Gustav Mahler and Hugo Wolf were almost exact contemporaries, born just 4 months apart in 1860, and from similar modest social backgrounds in the provinces of the Austrian empire. Artistically, their lives were both shaped by the ever-looming influence of Wagner. Their early careers were also intertwined: both arrived in Vienna in 1875 and enrolled at the Vienna Conservatoire at the precocious age of 15, even studying harmony together in the same class. They even shared an apartment together with another friend, à la "Bohème", wrote their earliest music in one another's company and scrabbled pennies from teaching to attend the opera together. However, Mahler soon left Vienna to pursue his conducting career, and Wolf's short-lived fame as a composer petered out as his syphilis-induced insanity took over. Now, Mahler fills grand concert halls the world over with performances of his symphonies but Wolf's fame rests largely on his impressive output of songs.

Festival 2017, Education Slow and Fast

Tony Sewell and Mike Grenier discuss the challenges of education in the 21st century with Philip Dodd and an audience at Sage Gateshead as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival. Can idle curiosity, slow burning passion and a time for reflection be at the heart of our schools? Or does the increasingly rapid pace of technological change make that sort of teaching a luxury at best - or, at worst, an educational philosophy stuck in a time warp?

Mike Grenier is a House Master at Eton College and the co-founder of the Slow Education Movement, educators arguing the need to make time in the classroom for creative teaching and learning.

Dr Tony Sewell, CBE is the director of the London based charity, Generating Genius, which aims to help children achieve educational success. He began his career as a school teacher and, in 2012, was appointed to chair the Mayor's Education Inquiry into London schools. He works in both the UK and the Caribbean and helped to set up the Science, Maths and Information Technology Centre at Jamaica's University of the West Indies.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b08kyp1r)
The Long Road to Peace, Enter the Peace Broker

The First World War broke out in Europe in the summer of 1914. But America did not enter the War until nearly three years later, in April 1917. America's President Woodrow Wilson, a former Professor of Politics at Princeton, was a committed advocate of peace and wanted to use his country's status as the leading neutral power to broker a peace between the belligerents.

Throughout the First World War, statesmen and diplomats were seeking ways to end hostilities. But it was not until December 1916 that the serious push for peace began. By then the fighting on the Western Front had revealed the full horror of modern industrial warfare.

But Wilson's peace initiative of 1916 did not succeed and he came to realise that America would have to join the war if it wished to shape the peace. Military historian Hew Strachan on Woodrow Wilson's personal journey from peace broker to belligerent.

Sir Hew Strachan is Professor of International Relations at the University of St Andrews and an Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, University of Oxford.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with David Hepworth

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. Two pieces of music are played together. Can you identify them?

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the music journalist and broadcaster David Hepworth. David has launched and written for many of the most successful pop-culture magazines of the past 30 years, including Smash Hits, More, Heat, Q and The Word. He was a presenter of BBC2's The Old Grey Whistle Test and co-presented the BBC's coverage of the global charity concert Live Aid. As well as discussing his life's work and reflecting on popular culture, David also shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Copland, Walton and Philip Glass.

10.30am
Music in Time: Baroque
Today Sarah's in the Baroque period exploring a lesser-known side of Handel's career. Alongside being the star of London's opera scene, Handel also took a philanthropic interest in his adopted city. Sarah shares music he wrote for the Foundling Hospital and considers what it tells us about 18th-century London.

Double Take
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two interpretations of Debussy's Arabesque No.2 - one by Zoltán Kocsis and one by Pascal Rogé.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. During three decades of performing and recording, he's established a reputation for both virtuosity and versatility. His interpretations of classic repertoire such as the concertos of Haydn and Hummel have become benchmarks for the next generation, and Sarah has selected these alongside Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.2 in F major, widely perceived as one of the most challenging pieces in the trumpet repertoire. But, Hardenberger is also committed to championing contemporary works. Sarah's selections include Pärt's Concerto Piccolo on B-A-C-H and Takemitsu's Paths - both of which were dedicated to, and premiered by him - as well as H K Gruber's 3 MOB Pieces.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b08kyp1t)
The Long Road to Peace, Peace in the Land of the Soviets

On 8 March 1917, striking workers took to the streets of Petrograd, today's St Petersburg. 'Give us bread', they shouted. Public outcry at the food shortages became a clamour for revolution, combined with a call for peace.

The Russian revolution raised questions across Europe about the people's commitment to the First World War. States now faced a very real threat of revolution from within as well as the War from without.

On 7 November 1917, the Bolsheviks seized power in Petrograd and the following day, Lenin demanded an immediate armistice. Peace would enable the Bolsheviks to deliver on their promise of bread. But Germany was to impose crippling peace terms. Military historian Hew Strachan reflects on how a people's revolution led to a victor's peace.

Sir Hew Strachan is Professor of International Relations at the University of St Andrews and an Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, University of Oxford.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b08kyp1w)
The Long Road to Peace, Armistice

By the summer of 1918, the territory controlled by the German Empire stretched from France to Russia, and anticipated the reach of Hitler's Germany in 1941. Nobody looking at the map of Europe that July could have imagined that by mid-November 1918 Germany would be defeated.

But peace with Russia in the East in March 1918 had fragmented the alliance of Central Powers, led by Germany. Germany's partners - Bulgaria, Austria-Hungary and the Ottoman Empire - were not involved in the fighting on the Western Front and so had no reason to carry on hostilities, unless they wished to fight with each other over the division of the spoils. The war in the West was now Germany's alone.

In the autumn of 1918, armistice followed armistice as, one after another, the Central Powers sought peace. Military historian Hew Strachan explores how a series of independently brokered agreements gradually achieved a fragile pause in hostilities.

Sir Hew Strachan is Professor of International Relations at the University of St Andrews and an Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, University of Oxford.

Breakfast at Uproot Festival

Petroc Trelawny presents a special Breakfast show from BBC Humberside as part of Radio 3's Uproot festival for Hull 2017. There will be listener requests for music and musicians associated with Hull, poetry from Philip Larkin and a visit to William Wilberforce's House.

This is the official start of Uproot, Radio 3's three-day festival celebrating the area's folk and roots heritage as well as its international cultural connections as part of the BBC's contribution to Hull UK City of Culture 2017. There are four concerts at Hull Truck Theatre from major world and folk artists, including Hull's folk royalty The Waterson Family Eliza Cathy's innovative Arms Wide Orchestra, special appearances from Yorkshire folk artists Fay Hield and Martin Simpson, plus concerts celebrating Hull's international links from the Warsaw Village Band and Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars. Breakfast is live at BBC Humberside and on Hull Marina, there are special editions from Hull Truck Theatre of Free Thinking and In Tune, and the theme is reflected widely in other programming across the three days. The theme 'Uproot' is essentially a reflection on roots, how people relate to them in fast-changing times, and what happens when people are displaced from their roots.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with David Hepworth

9am
Sarah sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain, and as Radio 3 visits Hull for its Uproot festival, Sarah will also be featuring classical repertoire throughout the week reflecting folk music from around the world.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge and identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the music journalist and broadcaster David Hepworth. David has launched and written for many of the most successful pop-culture magazines of the past 30 years, including Smash Hits, More, Heat, Q and The Word. He was a presenter of BBC2's The Old Grey Whistle Test and co-presented the BBC's coverage of the global charity concert Live Aid. As well as discussing his life's work and reflecting on popular culture, David also shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Copland, Walton and Philip Glass.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Today Sarah's exploring the rise of the travelling virtuoso in the 19th century. Composer and pianist Franz Liszt was the archetype, and his series of suites Les Années de Pélèrinage (The Years of Pilgrimage) capture the years he spent criss-crossing Europe.

Double Take
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences between two interpretations of the aria "Celeste Aida" from Verdi's opera Aida.

11am
Artist of the Week: Håkan Hardenberger
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. During three decades of performing and recording, he's established a reputation for both virtuosity and versatility. His interpretations of classic repertoire such as the concertos of Haydn and Hummel have become benchmarks for the next generation, and Sarah has selected these alongside Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.2 in F major, widely perceived as one of the most challenging pieces in the trumpet repertoire. But, Hardenberger is also committed to championing contemporary works. Sarah's selections include Pärt's Concerto Piccolo on B-A-C-H and Takemitsu's Paths - both of which were dedicated to, and premiered by him - as well as H K Gruber's 3 MOB Pieces.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b08kyp20)
The Long Road to Peace, The World Comes to Paris

In 1919, delegations from across the world gathered in Paris to negotiate an end to the First World War. Only an hour or two's drive away lay the shattered villages, devastated landscapes and multiple cemeteries of northern France. Many of those attending the Paris Peace Conference drove out to witness the destruction for themselves, as eventually did the American President Woodrow Wilson.

For President Wilson, bringing the War to an end with the right kind of peace had become a personal crusade. It was Wilson's principles for peace - many of which had, in fact, originated in Britain - that were to be influential in shaping the terms of the Treaty of Versailles with Germany.

Military historian Hew Strachan considers how Wilson's thinking shaped the terms of the Treaty of Versailles and disputes the notion that its treatment of Germany led directly to the Second World War.

Sir Hew Strachan is Professor of International Relations at the University of St Andrews and an Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, University of Oxford.

Max Reinhardt interviews Can

Can are one of the most influential experimental groups of the twentieth century. Their heavily rhythmic, minimal music led the way in the so-called Krautrock movement and for many redefined what it meant to be a popular band.

Max Reinhardt presents an interview with members of the band, ahead of a Barbican performance where founding member Irmin Schmidt will premiere an orchestral reinterpretation of classic Can material alongside new work with the London Symphony Orchestra. Max is joined by Irmin Schmidt and will remember drummer Jaki Liebezeit, who passed away in January this year.

As part of the BBC's contribution to Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Radio 3 presents 'Uproot', a 3-day festival celebrating the area's folk and roots heritage as well as its international cultural connections. There are four concerts at Hull Truck Theatre from major world and folk artists, including Hull's folk royalty The Waterson Family, Eliza Cathy's innovative Arms Wide Orchestra, special appearances from Yorkshire folk artists Fay Hield and Martin Simpson, plus concerts celebrating Hull's international links from the Warsaw Village Band and Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars. The theme is reflected widely in other programming across the three days. The theme 'Uproot' is essentially a reflection on roots, how people relate to them in fast-changing times, and what happens when people are displaced from their roots.

The Watersons were leading figures in the English folk revival in the 1960s and 70s, celebrated for their unique song repertoire and distinctive vocal harmonies. With Martin Carthy joining the family in the 1970s, and new generations of family musicians coming through, they have been a reference-point for English folk for fifty years. In this special concert for Hull City of Culture 2017, they return to their home town, with a first half that celebrates the traditions of the Watersons' vocal harmonies, and a second half with The Gift Band, fronted by Norma Waterson, the only remaining member of the original 1960s line-up, with her daughter Eliza Carthy.

Ian McMillan is joined by guests including Clive Upton, a specialist in dialectology.

Producer: Faith Lawrence.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b08kyp24)
The Long Road to Peace, Peace in the Levant

The First World War did not end with the German Armistice in 1918, nor with the Treaty of Versailles with Germany in 1919. In fact, peace negotiations would not be finalised until 1923 when the Treaty of Lausanne with Turkey finally brought the War to a close.

The peacemakers of 1919 had to deal with the fall-out from the collapse of four vast empires - German, Austro-Hungarian, Russian and Ottoman. This made the peace process particularly complex. Not only did the peacemakers have to redraw the national borders of countries that had fought in the War; they also had to create new states to accommodate the peoples of the empires that had collapsed. Aligning ethnicity with state frontiers was to prove an impossible task.

Military historian Hew Strachan reflects on the long road to peace with the peoples of the former Ottoman Empire and the legacy of that peace settlement today.

Sir Hew Strachan is Professor of International Relations at the University of St Andrews and an Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, University of Oxford.
