SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08ndm03)
Nikolaj Znaider, Philip Glass - Music in Twelve Parts, Daryl Runswick

Tom Service meets the acclaimed violinist and conductor Nikolaj Znaider ahead of concerts involving both his violin and his baton with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and his Mozart project with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Up till now Philip Glass's masterpiece Music in 12 Parts has only been performed by the composer's own Philip Glass Ensemble - but Glass has now given his blessing for a new generation of players to take on the three-and-a-half-hour epic. Tom talks to the new generation of musicians led by organist James McVinnie as well as members of the original Glass Ensemble about the piece.

Plus Tom celebrates the 70th birthday of the English composer, arranger and producer Daryl Runswick. A remarkably prolific composer who worked with Berio and Stockhausen, was a successful jazz bassist with the Dankworths, has written over 100 arrangements for the King's Singers, been sampled by pop bands and was head of composition at Trinity College of Music. Tom talks to Daryl about being a musical chameleon.

SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b08ndm07)
Sourced from the Bard

Matthew Sweet with a selection of music inspired by films that take inspiration from the works of Shakespeare in the week of the release of William Oldroyd's film "Lady Macbeth".

While the cinema has brought many famous adaptations of Shakespeare's plays to the screen, the story of The Bard's influence on film is far greater. Matthew Sweet presents a selection of soundtracks for films that have taken Shakespeare's stories as the source material for new plots - some quite literal, others a little more subtle. The programme features a Spaghetti Western versions of Hamlet, a submarine reworking of Romeo and Juliet, and a mediaeval Japanese take on King Lear.

Featured film scores include music for 'Theatre Of Blood', 'Chimes At Midnight', 'All Night Long', 'Forbidden Planet', 'Prospero's Books', 'McLintock!' and 'The Lion King'.

The Classic Score of the Week is the film soundtrack to Leonard Bernstein's 'West Side Story'.

Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution: Eamon Duffy

Professor of the History of Christianity at Cambridge, Eamon Duffy has changed for ever the way we view the Reformation. His books, including The Stripping of the Altars and The Voices of Morebath, have revealed a picture of late medieval Catholicism as a strong and vital tradition, and have shown that the Reformation, for most ordinary people, represented a violent disruption to a flourishing religious system.

Eamon talks about his passion for medieval, Tudor and seventeenth-century music and history, the state of Catholic church music today and the pleasures of playing chamber music.

His choices of music include countertenor Alfred Deller singing Purcell, the Beaux Arts Trio playing Haydn and Janet Baker singing Elgar.

Eamon's final piece of music is a wonderfully evocative Arab Christian chant for Palm Sunday, sung by a nun from the Melkite order.

Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution: The Lead-Up...

As part of Radio 3's Breaking Free: Martin Luther's Revolution, Lucie Skeaping looks ahead to the beginnings of the Protestant Reformation in northern Europe, and some of the composers active in the very early years of the 16th Century.

500 years ago, in October 1517, the German cleric Martin Luther published what became known as his '95 theses', in which he attacked the common church practice of selling 'Indulgences' - people being led to buy their way out of God's punishment for having sinned and enriching the church in the process. To Luther, salvation was a personal matter; it came direct from the Scriptures, not from the trappings of ceremony and all the corruption that went with it. He didn't want to split from the church but to reform it - to draw in ordinary people to the faith in which he profoundly believed. And whilst this wasn't exactly a new idea, his defiant act lit the fuse for a Protestant Reformation that would have a profound effect upon all of Europe.

Part of it meant encouraging people not only to come to church but to participate more in its services by joining in the singing. Luther himself was a fine musician: he sang and played both the flute and lute and was no mean composer. The poet Hans Sachs (of Meistersinger fame) described Luther's reforming work as 'the singing of the Wittenberg nightingale'. Luther also valued his friendship with many important composers of his day, among them Ludwig Senfl, composer to Emperor Maximilian I, and Josquin des Prez whose music Luther declared 'as free as the song of the finch', embodying the freedom of the gospel, as it were, in contrast to the constraint of church law.

Luther and his colleagues began writing, revising, composing and arranging hymns for their new style of worship. Many appeared on broadsheets - not in Latin but in German ('for the sake of the unlearned folk'); some even (shock horror) used popular tunes! He also commissioned new polyphonic works for use in schools 'to wean the young away from love ballads and carnal songs'. Things didn't change overnight of course, but by around 1600 it was becoming customary for the organ to play all the parts while the congregation sang the tune - think of the chorales in the great masses by Bach a century later.

Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution: The Genevan Psalter

Sara Mohr-Pietsch journeys into the reforming world of John Calvin. As part of BBC Radio 3's 'Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution' season, The Choir focuses on the Genevan Psalter and its impact upon choral worship including the development of the Anglo-Psalter. With experts Professor Jane Dawson and Dr Timothy Duguid joining Sara, they look at how Calvin wanted all the congregation to be involved in worshiping God through music, and how the Genevan melodies became so popular they had a life of their own outside the walls of the church. Composers such as Vaughan Williams, Liszt, Schumann, Kodaly and JS Bach have all adapted melodies from the Genevan Psalter, creating new choral and instrumental works. Some of the Genevan psalm melodies even ended up in the Sultan's seraglio, courtesy of the composer Ali Ufki.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08ndv2z)
Breaking Free: Martin Luther's Revolution

As part of Radio 3's Breaking Free: Martin Luther's Revolution, The Listening Service asks where the idea of communal singing, especially in religious contexts, came from in modern Europe. It seems natural to us today but the practice of congregational singing was once a radical, revolutionary idea that brought religion and politics together. And - what do the football chants heard on the terraces share with the hymns we sing in church? Tom talks to Bach scholar John Butt and the Reverend Lucy Winkett to find some answers. Rethink music with The Listening Service.

Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution: A Square Dance in Heaven

The Protestant Reformation has traditionally been regarded as "the triumph of the word", marking a decisive shift from a visual and sensual culture to a literary one. But for Martin Luther, music, with its power to move emotions, was an "inexpressible miracle" second only to Theology. When people engage in music, he said, singing in four or five parts, it is like a "square dance in heaven."

Luther's ideas about music were to have a decisive influence on the development of music in Germany. Indeed, the dominance of German music from the 17th to 19th centuries would not have happened without him. The English and Scottish Reformations, which took a Calvinist route, were untouched by this influence. It took until the 18th century for the hymn-writing Wesley brothers to do for England's churches what Luther had done for German ones two hundred years earlier. The Lutheran Church, with its hymns and chorales, was the seedbed for the choral and liturgical works of Germany's greatest composers. No Luther, no Bach. It's that simple.

The Rev Lucy Winkett, a trained singer and Bach enthusiast, takes the listener on a musical tour of the Reformation. The programme opens in the Georgenkirche in Eisenach where Martin Luther and J.S Bach were both choirboys. Lucy visits Torgau, where the first Lutheran cantor, Johann Walther, set Luther's famous words to music and spearheaded the educational reforms which led to an explosion of choral singing throughout Saxony. The programme ends in Leipzig at the Thomaskirche, where Bach wrote his famous cantatas and other works based on Lutheran liturgy.

Music for this programme has been specially recorded with the choir of Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, under the direction of Dr Geoffrey Webber.

Producer, Rosie Dawson.

1/5: Getting the Message Across - the Birth of Propaganda.
Presented by Chris Bowlby.
For anyone who finds the tone of modern social media unedifying, a glance at the Reformation equivalent is instructive. Some of Luther's ideas were around long before the Reformation but without the printing press their reach was limited. With the printing press they were explosive. Luther's rhetoric could be as offensive as any tweet, and an anti-papal 16th-century woodcut (think cartoons/graffiti) showed squatting devils excreting monks from their backsides. Many social media spats are civil by comparison.

10am Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution
As Radio 3 celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Sarah Walker is joined by the historian Ian Mortimer to explore the momentous changes that the Reformation brought to music and the arts.
Ian is best-known for his book The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval History, which became a Sunday Times Bestseller. After completing his PhD he worked for several major research institutions including the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts and the universities of Exeter and Reading, all of which gave him a hands-on experience of history. He has also written poetry and a series of historical fiction novels under the pseudonym James Forrester. Ian believes that history is about people, not the past, and in his Time Traveller's Guide series he immerses readers in the real-life, everyday practicalities and concerns of men and women living in the Medieval era, the Restoration period, or Elizabethan England. Throughout the week Ian and Sarah will discover how music was shaped by the events, personalities and societies of these times.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic Reformation Reflections
Today Sarah's exploring Reformation-inspired music from the Romantic Period. Felix Mendelssohn wrote his Reformation Symphony to mark the 300th anniversary of the Presentation of the Augsburg Confession: 28 articles setting out the beliefs and teachings of the Lutheran church.

11am
Sarah's Artists of the Week are the Belcea Quartet, which was formed under the leadership of violinist Corina Belcea in 1994, when the original members were still students at the Royal Academy of Music. Five years later they were one of the first groups selected to participate in Radio 3's New Generation Artists Scheme, and in 2001 they won the Gramophone Award for best debut recording. They have gone on to make acclaimed recordings of the core quartet repertoire, ranging from Mozart to Schoenberg, as well as collaborations with the tenor Ian Bostridge and bass, Jonathan Lemalu. The quartet combines technical brilliance with emotional intensity as we'll hear through the week in their recordings of quartets by Debussy, Schoenberg, Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b08ndxg9)
Luther's Reformation Gang, Martin Luther

Martin Luther is a larger than life figure, a difficult hero who escapes any pigeon-holes you might try to stuff him into. Over the last five hundred years he has been made into a nationalist hero, the founder of the German language, the original pater familias of the pious parsonage, the man who ushered in the modern era.

He was a complex character, an angry anti-Semite who made enemies easily; he was also brilliant, courageous, and revolutionary. In the first of five essays this week which look at the most influential figures who brought about the Reformation, Lyndal Roper, Regius Professor of History at Oxford University, profiles the man who has caused her so much fascination and delight and frustration.

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Ian Mortimer

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 today's musical challenge: listen to the music and name the two composers associated with it. 

10am
As Radio 3 celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Sarah Walker is joined by the historian Ian Mortimer to explore the momentous changes that the Reformation brought to music and the arts.
Ian is best-known for his book The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval History, which became a Sunday Times Bestseller. After completing his PhD he worked for several major research institutions including the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts and the universities of Exeter and Reading, all of which gave him a hands-on experience of history. He has also written poetry and a series of historical fiction novels under the pseudonym James Forrester. Ian believes that history is about people, not the past, and in his Time Traveller's Guide series he immerses readers in the real-life, everyday practicalities and concerns of men and women living in the Medieval era, the Restoration period, or Elizabethan England. Throughout the week Ian and Sarah will discover how music was shaped by the events, personalities and societies of these times.

10.30am
Music in Time: 20th Century Reformation Reflections
Today Sarah's in the 20th century exploring how two Reformation tunes lived on in the music of Benjamin Britten: the 'Old Hundredth', in his cantata Saint Nicolas, and the Tallis Canon, in his opera Noye's Fludde.

Double Take  
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two contrasting accounts of J.S. Bach's organ chorale prelude, Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme, BWV645, performed by Ton Koopman and Simon Preston.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Weeks are the Belcea Quartet, which was formed under the leadership of violinist Corina Belcea in 1994, when the original members were still students at the Royal Academy of Music. Five years later they were one of the first groups selected to participate in Radio 3's New Generation Artists Scheme, and in 2001 they won the Gramophone Award for best debut recording. They have gone on to make acclaimed recordings of the core quartet repertoire, ranging from Mozart to Schoenberg, as well as collaborations with the tenor Ian Bostridge and bass, Jonathan Lemalu. The quartet combines technical brilliance with emotional intensity as we'll hear through the week in their recordings of quartets by Debussy, Schoenberg, Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert.

TUE 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b08ndzwr)
BBC Philharmonic - Elgar, Brahms

From Westmorland Hall, Kendal
Presented by Tom Redmond

Elgar: Violin Concerto

Music Interval

8.35
Brahms: Symphony No 1

Tasmin Little (violin)
BBC Philharmonic
Michael Seal (conductor)

Brahms declared he would never write a symphony, so strongly did he feel Beethoven looking over his shoulder; however, despite his uncertainty about measuring up, his First Symphony was eventually born when Brahms was in his early forties and the the gripping opening, intermezzo-like middle movements and rays of golden light which spread through the Finale add up to a positive and satisfying whole. Tasmin Little joins the orchestra for Elgar's Violin Concerto which opens the programme. This is a piece that Elgar himself loved and the lyricism and vitality of the music speak as clearly today as when it received its enormously successful premiere.


TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b08nf02y)
Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution

Peter Stanford, Ulinka Rublack and Diarmaid MacCulloch join Anne McElvoy to explore the question Martin Luther - Fundamentalist, Reactionary or Enlightened Creator of the Modern World?

The discussion was recorded in front of an audience at theLiterary Festival for Radio 3's Breaking Free series of programmes exploring Martin Luther's Revolution.

500 years ago Martin Luther launched the Protestant Reformation when he nailed a sheet of paper to the door of a church in a small university town in Germany. That sheet and the incendiary ideas it contained flared up into religious persecution and war, eventually burning a huge hole through 16th century Christendom. And yet the man who sparked this revolution has somehow been lost in the glare of events.

Peter Stanford is the author of a new biography of Luther
Ulinka Rublack is the author of Reformation Europe
Diarmaid MacCulloch's most recent book is All Things Made New - Writings on the Reformation

Producer Zahid Warley.


TUE 22:45 The Essay (b08nf057)
Luther's Reformation Gang, Thomas Muntzer

Thomas Muntzer was a fire and brimstone apocalyptic preacher and reformer who was more popular than Martin Luther in his day. As leader of 'The Peasants' War' in 1525 he is hailed as the forerunner of Communist revolutionaries. Though not a communist himself, he had no respect for the social hierarchy - neither princes, dukes, bishops nor civic dignitaries and this was based on his belief that every man was equal before God. It was the task of princes to wield the sword on the side of God - but with the people and not against the people. He initially saw Luther as a comrade-in-arms but he went on to write two major pamphlets against Luther in 1524 describing him as 'soft-living flesh', 'Dr Liar', 'the Wittenberg Pope' and worse. Luther denounced him as a devil and Thomas Muntzer ended up losing his head. Edinburgh writer Andy Drummond profiles the man that Luther later admitted had been his most dangerous opponent.

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - Debussy, Lalo, Rimsky-Korsakov

Live from the Lighthouse in Poole, James Gaffigan conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, Lalo's Symphonie Espagnole (with violin soloist Alexandra Soumm) and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade.

Introduced by Martin Handley

Debussy: Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
Lalo: Symphonie Espagnole
Rimsky-Korsakov: Scheherazade

Alexandra Soumm (violin)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
James Gaffigan (conductor)

Debussy's seductive painting of a languid, sun-drenched Sicilian afternoon marked a turning point in musical history, with its tantalising veil of hypnotic colours and textures conjuring up the lustful dream of a flute-playing satyr. Lalo's Symphonie espagnole was an instant hit from its premiere in 1875 with Pablo de Sarasate in the concerto-like solo violin role. Tchaikovsky loved it, writing "It is so fresh and light, and contains piquant rhythms and melodies which are beautifully harmonised." Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade consisted of "separate, unconnected episodes and pictures" as the composer himself put it, from The Arabian Nights: snapshots, in other words, of a world he never knew - a triumph of imagination over experience!.

Rana Mitter looks at new research into the way daily life changed in Britain after the Reformation for Radio 3's series of programmes exploring Martin Luther's Revolution. His guests are:

Alec Ryrie, Professor in Religion and Theology at the University of Durham and author of: Protestants: The Faith that Made the Modern World 201;
Tom Charlton, New Generation Thinker is currently studying the history of Protestant nonconformity at Dr Williams's Library, London

WED 22:45 The Essay (b08nf059)
Luther's Reformation Gang, Katharina von Bora

Dr Charlotte Woodford, fellow in German at Cambridge University, tells the story of the woman who won Martin Luther's heart.

If ever there were a power behind the throne, none was stronger than Katharina von Bora. Known as 'The Lutherine', this former nun found her true vocation as Luther's 'Power-Frau,' arguing the finer points of Theology with him as well as raising their six children and providing hospitality for Luther's fellow-reformers in Wittenberg.

Luther had told friends he didn't intend to take a wife, and when he eventually decided to marry Katharina he wrote to a friend that he did not feel 'passionate love' for her. But later he described her in the most glowing terms possible for a biblically-minded theologian, comparing his devotion to her with that which he felt for one of St Paul's epistles. 'The epistle to the Galatians is my dear epistle. I have put my confidence in it. It is my Katy von Bora'.

WED 23:00 Late Junction (b08nf0km)
Late Junction at North Atlantic Flux

Max Reinhardt hosts a live collaboration session from last weekend's North Atlantic Flux festival in Hull. Four eclectic groups from countries on the North Atlantic perform short sets at Jubilee Church, Hull. Then from the pool of musicians available in the room, new pairings and groups are formed for spontaneous music making, generating a unique take on the Late Junction Collaboration Session in front of a live festival audience.

The four ensembles bravely taking part are Pinquins Percussion Trio, three hugely talented Norwegian performers working with contemporary classical repertoire; the founding member of electronic outfit Fila Brazillia Steve Cobby in a duo with Russ Litten, an author and former Writer in Residence at a prison in the North of England; the Icelandic vocalist and composer Ragga Gisla with her Scandinavian ensemble and Roller Bassoon a jazz super group from Leeds comprising members of Roller Trio and Shatner's Bassoon.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Ian Mortimer

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
As Radio 3 celebrates the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, Sarah Walker is joined by the historian Ian Mortimer to explore the momentous changes that the Reformation brought to music and the arts.
Ian is best-known for his book The Time Traveller's Guide to Medieval History, which became a Sunday Times Bestseller. After completing his PhD he worked for several major research institutions including the Royal Commission on Historical Manuscripts and the universities of Exeter and Reading, all of which gave him a hands-on experience of history. He has also written poetry and a series of historical fiction novels under the pseudonym James Forrester. Ian believes that history is about people, not the past, and in his Time Traveller's Guide series he immerses readers in the real-life, everyday practicalities and concerns of men and women living in the Medieval era, the Restoration period, or Elizabethan England. Throughout the week Ian and Sarah will discover how music was shaped by the events, personalities and societies of these times.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance Reformation Reflections
Today Sarah's in late Renaissance introducing the music of the Dutch composer and organist Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. He made many settings of psalms from the Genevan Psalter, a book created under the supervision of leading religious reformer, John Calvin.

Double Take 
Sarah explores two interpretations of Mozart's Rondo for Horn and Orchestra in E flat major K.371, comparing performances by Barry Tuckwell, and Roger Montgomery playing it on a natural horn.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Weeks are the Belcea Quartet, which was formed under the leadership of violinist Corina Belcea in 1994, when the original members were still students at the Royal Academy of Music. Five years later they were one of the first groups selected to participate in Radio 3's New Generation Artists Scheme, and in 2001 they won the Gramophone Award for best debut recording. They have gone on to make acclaimed recordings of the core quartet repertoire, ranging from Mozart to Schoenberg, as well as collaborations with the tenor Ian Bostridge and bass, Jonathan Lemalu. The quartet combines technical brilliance with emotional intensity as we'll hear through the week in their recordings of quartets by Debussy, Schoenberg, Beethoven, Mozart and Schubert.

Luther's Reformation Gang, Johann Walther

Johann Walther was adopted out of poverty as a boy and could sing like a canary. Initially taking a series of courtly composer and cantor roles, he jumped at the chance to edit the people's first Protestant hymn book. It's a great untold story - the hymns of Luther and Walther began a rich musical tradition in Protestant Germany which changed the musical world. Without Luther and Walther we would not have the oratorios, cantatas and passions of Bach and the word-centred, 'Protestant' tradition of high-quality and complex music and hymnody we know today. Dr Stephen Rose from Royal Holloway University of London tells the story of Johann Walther, the man behind Luther's musical Reformation.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b08nf05l)
Luther's Reformation Gang, Philip Melanchthon

Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon are the odd couple of the Reformation, inseparable in the religious revolution they inaugurated, and yet in personality chalk and cheese - and there's no doubt that it's Luther who is the cheese: volatile, colourful, impassioned; ripening majestically but also suddenly going off, like one of those goats' cheeses in the middle of France that could easily double up as an explosive device. Luther has priority in terms of being older, and by force of personality. Melanchthon seems monochrome by comparison. It has been easy for history, outside of specialists, to forget him. But if Margaret Thatcher once said of her right-hand man William Whitelaw that "every Prime Minister needs a Willie", this is all the more the case with true revolutionaries. Revolutions seem to need an odd couple: Robespierre and Danton, or Marx and Engels. Melanchthon is hardly a household name these days but he is (if you like) a revolutionary's revolutionary. Intellectual, serious, endlessly patient, he kept clearing up the mess that Luther left around him. Professor Brian Cummings, from the University of York, tells his story.
