SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08ny5ck)
Jan Vogler

Presented by Tom Service.

As part of Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution, Tom talks to Jan Vogler, cellist and artistic director of the Dresden Music Festival, about music and politics, and how the festival is celebrating Luther's legacy by commissioning new music for a 1927 film about the Protestant Reformation from composer Sven Helbig.

As Ravi Shankar's only opera, Sukanya, is given its posthumous world premiere at The Curve in Leicester - a partnership with the Royal Opera House and the London Philharmonic Orchestra - Tom visits rehearsals to talk to the conductor David Murphy, who collaborated with Shankar in his final years to write the work, and the production's director Suba Das. Soprano Susanna Hurrell explains the vocal challenges involved in bringing the role of Sukanya to life, and Tom revisits his interview with Ravi Shankar for Music Matters in 2008.

Tom also meets the pianist and composer Jonathan Powell, who reveals the unique delights and challenges of Kaikhosru Sorabji's technically demanding works for piano, including Opus Clavicembalisticum, which takes over four hours to perform, and the eight hour marathon Sequentia Cyclica.

And Kate Molleson reports from St Cecilia's Hall in Edinburgh, which is about to re-open following a £6.5m refurbishment. As Kate discovers, the hall houses a museum which is home to an impressive collection of instruments, including arguably the world's most important harpsichord.


SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b08ny5cm)
Breaking Free - Martin Luther's Revolution: Stephen Rose

As part of Breaking Free: Martin Luther's Revolution, Dr. Stephen Rose of Royal Holloway, University of London, presents music from the last 500 years which arguably might not have been written without the ideals of the Reformation. Composers include Bach, Alban Berg, William Billings, Sir Michael Tippett and Ralph Vaughan Williams.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b08ny5cp)
Erich Wolfgang Korngold

Matthew Sweet with a selection of music reflecting the film career of Hollywood genius Erich Wolfgang Korngold, featuring examples from the scores of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Captain Blood, Juarez, The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex, The Sea Hawk, The Constant Nymph, Kings Row, Escape Me Never, and Magic Fire.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Record Requests (b08ny5cr)

Recently listeners have been sending in requests for long-lost albums, and in this week's selection of music in all styles of jazz from the postbag and emails, Alyn Shipton includes a long-lost track by tenor saxophonist Ben Webster recorded in London.

Gabriele Finaldi

Gabriele Finaldi, the Director of the National Gallery, talks to Michael Berkeley about his artistic and musical passions.

When Gabriele Finaldi took up his post as Director of the National Gallery in the summer of 2015, one of the first things he did was to install a piano in the corner of his office.

He grew up in a musical household in Catford in South East London, the son of a Neapolitan father and half-Polish, half-English mother. Early in his career he was a curator at the National Gallery, specialising in Italian and Spanish paintings and he was involved in major and memorable shows such as Seeing Salvation and Discovering the Italian Baroque. In 2002 he was appointed Deputy Director of the Prado in Madrid, where he worked until his return to the National Gallery.
Gabriele takes Michael on a musical and artistic journey though Britain, Italy, France and Spain and chooses music by Ravel, Messiaen, Puccini and Britten, as well as a 17th-century Neapolitan serenade and a spine-tingling piece of flamenco.

Sara features the music of Tudor composers Thomas Tallis, William Byrd and Thomas Morley who were forced to adapt their styles as the country oscillated between catholic and protestant monarchs, and she follows their legacy in the music of later musicians, Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Tomkins and Henry Purcell.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08nyr2b)
Endings

Tom Service looks at how pieces of music end, and asks what endings mean. Are they mere framing devices, or can they suggest weightier thoughts of triumph, or conversely, of death? And what of the fading away so prevalent in pop music? From Beethoven's insistent affirmations to Tchaikovsky's bleak despair, from Haydn's witty farewells to Human League's intimations of eternity, the ways that music ends are as various as music itself.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b08nyr2q)
Breaking Free: The Fight Between Carnival and Lent

Jenny Agutter and Peter Wight with readings and music inspired by the 1559 oil painting by Pieter Bruegel The Elder. The painting depicts the folk traditions surrounding Carnival and Lent in the German lands in the early decades of the Reformation. The selection of music and readings explores the more universal struggle, between the desire to eat, drink, and let lose, embodied in Carnival, and the spirit of restraint and self-control personified in Lent. Including readings from Rabelais, Baudelaire, Donne, and Emily Dickinson, and music from Verdi, Mozart, Bach and Penderecki.

Part of Radio 3's Breaking Free season of programming exploring the impact of Martin Luther's Revolution.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.

Germany's celebrating 500 years since the Reformation - but what does it mean today? Chris Bowlby visits Wittenberg - where Martin Luther started it all in 1517. He discovers how the Reformation transformed life in many different ways, and helped make Germany a nation of singers and book-lovers. But amidst all the culture and kitsch Germany's also grappling with a darker legacy - Luther's anti-Semitism and exploitation by dictators and populists.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b06pv42w)
Curated by Harriet Walter, Dinner, by Moira Buffini

by Moira Buffini

Moira Buffini's outrageous comedy Dinner started life in the National Theatre's Loft in 2002, and became her first West End smash. In this production, adapted by the writer for Drama on 3, Harriet Walter returns to the role she created: Paige, the hostess and architect of an evening which her guests will never forget. Two other original leads, Nicholas Farrell and Penny Downie, and four new cast members join her in this viciously black chamber piece about appetite, which will make you think twice about ever accepting another invitation to dinner.

Moira Buffini's collaboration with Damon Albarn and Rufus Norris, the gaming musical 'wonder.land', ran at the Manchester International Festival, the National Theatre and the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris; and her Olivier award-winning comedy about the relationship between the Queen and Margaret Thatcher, 'Handbagged', after the original Tricycle production directed by Indhu Rubasingham, became a sell-out West End run.

These, along with her screenplays for movies 'Jane Eyre' (directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga), 'Tamara Drewe' (directed by Stephen Frears) and 'Byzantium' (directed by Neil Jordan), and her previous play for the National, the political fable 'Welcome to Thebes' (directed by Richard Eyre), have all demonstrated Buffini's appetite for political engagement, fast-moving wit, and a delight in satirising our own times.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Colin Salmon

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

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: can you identify the two pieces, played simultaneously?

10am
Rob's guest this week is the actor Colin Salmon. Colin is best known for playing M's Chief of Staff in three James Bond films and for his roles in action-horror films such as Resident Evil and Alien vs. Predator. He made his feature debut in the TV series Prime Suspect 2 and recent credits include Limitless for CBS and Henry IX for UKTV. Colin had a very musical childhood playing the trumpet in a Salvation Army band and he still considers music as more than just a hobby. He's played at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and he combined music with acting in his role for the BBC's adaption of Alexander McCall Smith's The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. As well as discussing his acting work, Colin shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Prokofiev, Richard Strauss and Gershwin.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Today Rob's in the early Romantic period, exploring Beethoven's final piano sonata, which looks both to the past with its fugal sections, and to the future with passages that seem to anticipate ragtime and jazz.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit. In 1977, Dutoit became the Artistic Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (OSM) - a position he held for some twenty-five years. During his tenure, he raised the orchestra's recording profile and reputation significantly, making it one of the leading orchestras in the French-speaking world. While he's best-known for his association with the OSM, Dutoit has also conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, Tokyo's NHK Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Verbier Festival Orchestra in Switzerland. He is celebrated in particular for his recordings of the Romantic repertoire, and during the course of the week we'll hear him conduct Ravel's Mother Goose, Dutilleux's violin concerto L'arbre des songes (with soloist Isabelle van Keulen), Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Haydn's Symphony No.82 'The Bear' and Chopin's Piano Concerto No.2 in F minor, with Dutoit's former wife, Martha Argerich, as soloist.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b04wmjqq)
Franz Liszt (1811-1886), A Rock Star in the Country

Donald Macleod presents a rare opportunity to hear all 13 of Liszt's symphonic poems. Today: the composer moves to Weimar with his mistress Carolyne.

In 1848, as revolution raged across Europe, Franz Liszt made the decision to walk away from his life as the most scandalous and brilliant piano virtuoso in the world - and settle down in the provincial German city of Weimar. Over the next twelve years he would forge a reputation as one of the most original composers of the Romantic Era - inventing a genre of composition that became known as the 'symphonic poem'. Liszt's new form of orchestral piece spun poetic or literary fables in music, evoking moods and images in its themes and harmonies, depicting heroes and villains, dramas and triumphs - a radical departure from the symphonic ideal of Beethoven and Brahms. This week, Donald Macleod presents a unique opportunity to hear all twelve of the symphonic poems Liszt created in Weimar - plus his final, valedictory symphonic poem, composed many years later, just before his own death.

We begin with Liszt's move to Weimar in 1848, accompanied by his beloved mistress Princess Carolyne von Sayn-Wittgenstein, a Russian aristocrat. With Carolyne still married to her Russian prince, the pair courted scandal by openly living 'in sin' at their spectacular Weimar residence, the Altenberg. Meanwhile, Liszt was busily composing what would ultimately prove his most popular symphonic poem, "Les Préludes", inspired by words by Alphonse de Lamartine.

Sakari Oramo (conductor)

Edgard Varèse, even a half century after his death, remains a controversial yet cult figure. Born in France in 1883, he grew up in Italy, studied composition in Paris and Berlin, and knew all the major artistic figures of his day. His early music, influenced by Debussy, Strauss and Busoni, was destroyed in a Berlin warehouse fire in 1918. He emigrated to the US in 1915, and apart from a five-year stint in Paris, he remained in the US until his death in 1965. His unique voice and rigorous, though eclectic aesthetic, influenced countless younger composers even though his entire output can be performed in about three hours.

The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Total Immersion day at the Barbican on Saturday 6 May embraces every note that has survived by the maverick composer, presented in two concerts and foyer events. This final concert by the BBC Symphony Orchestra leads the listener from the still startlingly original Amériques of 1918-21, via the witty Tuning Up (arranged by Varèse pupil Chou Wen-chung) to the late Nocturnal.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b06pxdzh)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes, Andrew Hussey

'The philosopher and critic Roland Barthes still has one of those French names which all too often can provoke anger, confusion and even fear amongst the English-speakers', suggests cultural historian and broadcaster Andrew Hussey.

Across the week five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the influence the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. Over the week they create a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and is still deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism. A powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers.

An eclectic group of essayists celebrate the range of influence his writing has had. Andrew Hussey examines Barthes' impact in Europe in the 1960s. Other essayists over the week include design historian Penny Sparke, film journalist Nick James and historian and broadcaster Michael Wood.

Producer: Frank Stirling at Unique.

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 object. 

10am
Rob's guest this week is the actor Colin Salmon. Colin is best known for playing M's Chief of Staff in three James Bond films and for his roles in action-horror films such as Resident Evil and Alien vs. Predator. He made his feature debut in the TV series Prime Suspect 2 and recent credits include Limitless for CBS and Henry IX for UKTV. Colin had a very musical childhood playing the trumpet in a Salvation Army band and he still considers music as more than just a hobby. He's played at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and he combined music with acting in his role for the BBC's adaption of Alexander McCall Smith's The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. As well as discussing his acting work, Colin shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Prokofiev, Richard Strauss and Gershwin.

10.30am
Music in Time: Renaissance
Today Rob's in the Renaissance period with music by Michael Praetorius, shining the spotlight on the composer's Lutheran Choral Concerts, which are based on the hymns of Martin Luther.

Double Take 
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two interpretations of 'The Lonely One' from Mahler's orchestral song cycle, The Song of the Earth. The first recording features Brigitte Fassbaender, while the second is sung by Jonas Kaufmann, the first time a tenor has recorded this song from the cycle.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit. In 1977, Dutoit became the Artistic Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (OSM) - a position he held for some twenty-five years. During his tenure, he raised the orchestra's recording profile and reputation significantly, making it one of the leading orchestras in the French-speaking world. While he's best-known for his association with the OSM, Dutoit has also conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, Tokyo's NHK Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Verbier Festival Orchestra in Switzerland. He is celebrated in particular for his recordings of the Romantic repertoire, and during the course of the week we'll hear him conduct Ravel's Mother Goose, Dutilleux's violin concerto L'arbre des songes (with soloist Isabelle van Keulen), Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Haydn's Symphony No.82 'The Bear' and Chopin's Piano Concerto No.2 in F minor, with Dutoit's former wife, Martha Argerich, as soloist.

Franz Liszt (1811-1886), Trailblazer on the Podium

Donald Macleod explores Liszt's symphonic poems. Now established in Weimar, Liszt protects his friend Wagner as he flees arrest.

In 1848, as revolution raged across Europe, Franz Liszt made the decision to walk away from his life as the most scandalous and brilliant piano virtuoso in the world - and settle down in the provincial German city of Weimar. Over the next twelve years he would forge a reputation as one of the most original composers of the Romantic Era - inventing a genre of composition that became known as the 'symphonic poem'. Liszt's new form of orchestral piece spun poetic or literary fables in music, evoking moods and images in its themes and harmonies, depicting heroes and villains, dramas and triumphs - a radical departure from the symphonic ideal of Beethoven and Brahms. This week, Donald Macleod presents a unique opportunity to hear all twelve of the symphonic poems Liszt created in Weimar - plus his final, valedictory symphonic poem, composed many years later, just before his own death.

As Liszt began to establish a reputation as a composer in Weimar, he also began to cultivate a reputation as an innovative and dynamic conductor. Liszt was diverted from his musical work by the travails of his friend Richard Wagner, who was fleeing arrest after inciting revolution in Dresden. Donald Macleod introduces the symphonic poems Mazeppa and Heroïde Funebre - both rarely played in the concert hall - as well as Liszt's take on the Orpheus myth.

Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes, Nick James

The impact that the maverick critic, philosopher and semiologist Roland Barthes has had on those who write about films and on many who make them is significant. The film writer and arts journalist Nick James gives a personal response to his work.

Barthes was a powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers. Across the series five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the influence this extraordinary literary figure has had up. They create a picture of an author and essayist whose writing was fun, accessible and deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic.

Franz Liszt (1811-1886), Memories of Home

Donald Macleod presents a rare opportunity to hear all 13 of Liszt's symphonic poems. Today: a paean to the composer's Hungarian homeland, and a pastoral idyll.

In 1848, as revolution raged across Europe, Franz Liszt made the decision to walk away from his life as the most scandalous and brilliant piano virtuoso in the world - and settle down in the provincial German city of Weimar. Over the next twelve years he would forge a reputation as one of the most original composers of the Romantic Era - inventing a genre of composition that became known as the 'symphonic poem'. Liszt's new form of orchestral piece spun poetic or literary fables in music, evoking moods and images in its themes and harmonies, depicting heroes and villains, dramas and triumphs - a radical departure from the symphonic ideal of Beethoven and Brahms. This week, Donald Macleod presents a unique opportunity to hear all twelve of the symphonic poems Liszt created in Weimar - plus his final, valedictory symphonic poem, composed many years later, just before his own death.

Liszt's symphonic poems - spectacular, orchestral canvases that told a story in music - revolutionised the way music was conceptualised in the mid-19th century. In 1854, with the success of his first years in Weimar still ringing in his ears, the composer sat down to put the finishing touches to his first published volume of symphonic poems. It gave him the opportunity to revise and polish his very first, longest - and now least-perfomed - attempt at the form: a pastoral idyll summing up the beauty of mountain life. Donald Macleod also introduces Liszt's hymn to his native land: Hungaria.

CBSO - Bax and Vaughan Williams

Tom Redmond presents a concert of Bax and Vaughan Williams given by the CBSO and conductor John Wilson at Birmingham's Symphony Hall. An evening of contrasting moods, it's bookended by two works by Ralph Vaughan Williams - his transcendent Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, and the uproarious choral showpiece Five Tudor Portraits. Following the antics of a bunch of Elizabethan roustabouts, it was written for the 1936 Norwich Festival, to their apparent surprise: 'I think they thought they'd get "O Praise the Lord", but I sent them the Five Tudor Portraits.' Sandwiched in between is Arnold Bax's tone poem November Woods, a depiction of doomed wintry romance if ever there was one.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b06pxnjn)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes, Penny Sparke

The eminent design historian Penny Sparke (author of 'The Modern Interior' and 'As Long As It's Pink') cites Roland Barthes as a factor in her decision to work in the field of design. She assesses his influence on her thinking throughout her career.

Barthes was a powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers. In this series five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the effect the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. They create a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism.

Other essayists over the week include broadcaster and cultural historian Andrew Hussey, film journalist Nick James and historian and broadcaster Michael Wood.

Producer: Frank Stirling at Unique.

Take part in today's musical challenge: can you name the television show or film that featured this piece of classical music? 

10am
Rob's guest this week is the actor Colin Salmon. Colin is best known for playing M's Chief of Staff in three James Bond films and for his roles in action-horror films such as Resident Evil and Alien vs. Predator. He made his feature debut in the TV series Prime Suspect 2 and recent credits include Limitless for CBS and Henry IX for UKTV. Colin had a very musical childhood playing the trumpet in a Salvation Army band and he still considers music as more than just a hobby. He's played at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and he combined music with acting in his role for the BBC's adaption of Alexander McCall Smith's The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. As well as discussing his acting work, Colin shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Prokofiev, Richard Strauss and Gershwin.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Swiss conductor Charles Dutoit. In 1977, Dutoit became the Artistic Director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra (OSM) - a position he held for some twenty-five years. During his tenure, he raised the orchestra's recording profile and reputation significantly, making it one of the leading orchestras in the French-speaking world. While he's best-known for his association with the OSM, Dutoit has also conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Orchestre National de France, Tokyo's NHK Symphony Orchestra, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Verbier Festival Orchestra in Switzerland. He is celebrated in particular for his recordings of the Romantic repertoire, and during the course of the week we'll hear him conduct Ravel's Mother Goose, Dutilleux's violin concerto L'arbre des songes (with soloist Isabelle van Keulen), Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Haydn's Symphony No.82 'The Bear' and Chopin's Piano Concerto No.2 in F minor, with Dutoit's former wife, Martha Argerich, as soloist.

Franz Liszt (1811-1886), The Death of Daniel Liszt

Donald Macleod explores Liszt's symphonic poems. Today: the composer struggles to come to terms with the tragic death of his son Daniel.

In 1848, as revolution raged across Europe, Franz Liszt made the decision to walk away from his life as the most scandalous and brilliant piano virtuoso in the world - and settle down in the small German town of Weimar. Over the next twelve years he would forge a reputation as one of the most original musical creators of the Romantic Era - inventing a new genre of composition that became known as the 'symphonic poem'. Liszt's new form of orchestral piece spun poetic or literary fables in music, evoking moods and images in its themes and harmonies, depicting heroes and villains, dramas and triumphs - a radical departure from the symphonic ideal of Beethoven and Brahms. This week, Donald Macleod presents a unique opportunity to hear all twelve of the symphonic poems Liszt created in Weimar - plus his final, valedictory symphonic poem, composed many years later, just before his own death.

As Liszt took stock of nearly a decade spent in Weimar, he could be justifiably proud: he had shed his reputation as a brilliant pianistic show-pony and instead shown his vast talent as a composer, creating some of his most revered works. But his personal life was a mess. He struggled to gain sanction from the Catholic church to wed his beloved Carolyne, and then his beloved son Daniel died suddenly at the age of only 20. Donald Macleod explored the tragic circumstances of an event that Liszt said changed him for ever.

Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes, Andrew Gallix

An encounter as a teenager with Roland Barthes and an orange moped inspired the magazine editor Andrew Gallix, who now teaches at the Sorbonne, with a fascination for the ideas of the great French theorist. In this week of essays celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth, Andrew reflects on what Barthes meant by 'The Death of the Author'.
Across the week five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the influence the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. Over the week they create a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and is still deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism. A powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers.
An eclectic group of essayists celebrate the range of influence his writing has had. Andrew Hussey examines Barthes' impact in Europe in the 1960s. Other essayists over the week include design historian Penny Sparke, film journalist Nick James, the editor of 3 A.M.

Over the next twelve years he would forge a reputation as one of the most original composers of the Romantic Era - inventing a genre of composition that became known as the 'symphonic poem'.

Bliss: The Beatitudes

Sir Andrew Davis conductor

Sir Arthur Bliss wrote The Beatitudes for the opening of the new Coventry Cathedral in 1961, but at the last minute the premiere was relegated to Coventry Theatre. A powerful work, its dramatic arc reminds us of Bliss's gifts as a film composer. Conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, it's unlikely to be in better hands - as indeed are Elgar's 'Enigma' Variations, his glorious, affectionate and often jocular musical portraits of friends and family.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b08p52dt)
New Poetry

Ian McMillan and 'the cabaret of the word' present the newest of the new this week with debut poetry collections from up and coming stars Kayo Chingonyi and Ocean Vuong.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b06pxnjs)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes, Michael Wood

The historian and broadcaster Michael Wood concludes this series of essays celebrating the 20th-century French philosopher Roland Barthes by trying to define him. Semiologist, existentialist, writer on art, design, thought, popular culture, photography, film - even Barthes himself was decidedly inconsistent in his attempts to define himself.

Across the week five authors have been writing about Barthes' significance to them and discussing the effect the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. Over the week they've created a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and deeply influential on the way we look at the world. So how should we think of him? Or does he defy categorisation? Barthes' literary output was eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism. A powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers.

An eclectic group of essayists celebrate the range and breadth of his writing. Other essayists over the week include broadcaster and design historian Penny Sparke, film journalist Nick James and historian and broadcaster Michael Wood.

Producer: Frank Stirling at Unique.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b08p53pr)
Kathryn Tickell - Lady Maisery in Session

Kathryn Tickell with new releases from across the globe, plus a live session with English folk trio Lady Maisery.

Lady Maisery are Hannah James (vocals, piano accordion and clogs) Hazel Askew (vocals and concertina) and Rowan Rheingans (vocals, fiddle and banjo). They perform traditional and contemporary songs, and have explored the tradition of 'diddling' or tune singing, which had nearly died out in England.
