SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08qtb42)
Alma Deutscher, Cavalli at Glyndebourne, Election 2017

Presented by Tom Service.

The composer and violinist Alma Deutscher was born in 2005, started composing aged 4, and wrote her first piano sonata when she was 6. Her first piece for symphony orchestra, Dance of the Solent Mermaids, and an opera, Cinderella, had their first performances in 2015. Tom meets Alma at her home in Surrey to find out more about her musical journey, and listen to her improvising at the piano.

As a new production of Hipermestra, a rarely staged opera by Cavalli, opens at Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Tom heads to the gardens of the Sussex opera house to meet the conductor William Christie and director Graham Vick, finding a dynamic partnership working on an operatic ideal.

And Tom looks at the main parties' cultural policies in the run-up to the UK general election with Caroline Julian from the Creative Industries Federation.

SAT 17:00 Jazz Line-Up (b08qtb4b)
Misha Mullov-Abbado

Julian Joseph presents bassist/composer Misha Mullov-Abbado in concert at the London Jazz Festival performing music from his much anticipated second album 'Cross Platform Interchange'.

He is joined on this energetic performance by saxophonists Matthew Herd and Sam Rapley, pianist Liam Dunachie and drummer Scott Chapman.


SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b08qtb4d)
Ryan Wigglesworth's The Winter's Tale

When King of Sicilia Leontes becomes convinced that his queen Hermione is pregnant by his childhood friend and King of Bohemia Polixenes, he descends into an unstoppable, self-destructive spiral of anger, despair and paranoia. The jealous husband and woman scorned at the heart of The Winter's Tale are standard operatic fare, so it's no wonder that Ryan Wigglesworth based his first opera on Shakespeare's play.

It's a major work with roles specially tailored for its cast, here recorded at its premiere run at English National Opera in March and presented by Tom McKinney in conversation with new music expert and Head of Music at Southbank Centre, Gillian Moore. Actor Rory Kinnear made his directorial debut with this production and he, along with the composer and members of the cast, talk not only about the challenges of creating a new work for the stage but also about its striking contemporary resonance.

7.40pm Interval
Composer, director and members of the cast reflect on The Winter's Tale as stage play and opera and explore the themes and roles in the work.

8.00pm Act 2

SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b08qtb4g)
Glasgow Tectonics Festival 2017, The Necks, Linda Catlin Smith, Francois Bernard Mache, Roscoe Mitchell

New music from the Tectonics Festival recorded earlier this month in Glasgow.
Linda Catlin Smith: Wilderness
Francois Bernard Mâche: Kassandra
Yarn/Wire & BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ilan Volkov

Andrew McIntosh: Hyenas in the Temples of Pleasure
Yarn/Wire

Roscoe Mitchell: Saxophone solo

Abrahams/Buck/Swanton/Volkov: Elemental
The Necks with BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra directed by Ilan Volkov

Linda Catlin Smith's Wilderness is an exploration of orchestral colour, with the possibilities of the orchestra itself a kind of wilderness.
Mâche's award winning Kassandra from 1977, is typical of the composer's investigations into sounds in nature, zoomusicology and human speech patterns.
Legendary Australian trio The Necks improvise with Ilan Volkov and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, with an exploration into the zones between improvisation, post-rock, jazz, ambient, and orchestral music.
Saxophonist Roscoe Mitchell has been at the vanguard of jazz and improvisation for half a century, notably as a member of the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Yarn/Wire is a New York-based percussion and piano quartet, playing new music written for them by Andrew MacIntosh.
Presented by Robert Worby and Kate Molleson, who discuss the music with the artists involved.

Jonathan Swain

Following on from this week's Building A Library selection of the music of Sofia Gubaidulina, Jonathan Swain explores reflections of Russian Orthodoxy in music, including works by Scriabin and Mussorgsky. The week's young artist is violinist Giovanni Guzzo, and the neglected masterpiece is Borodin's Symphony No. 2.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08qtd87)
Bettany Hughes

Bettany Hughes talks to Michael Berkeley about the music that's shaped her family life, and the music she's come to love during her travels as a historian.

Bettany has more than 50 radio and television documentaries to her name, many about ancient history and she's also a prolific writer, a Research Fellow at King's College London and has been honoured with numerous awards including the Norton Medlicott Medal for History and the Fem 21 International Journalism Award for her 'exceptional contribution to the international coverage of the place of women in societies past and present'.

She's the author of three bestselling books, the latest of which is 'Istanbul', a decade in the making and over 800 pages long, which brings to life 3000 years of action-packed history in that great city.

She talks to Michael about the importance of visiting the places she writes about and the joy of discovering music such as shepherds' calls in Greece and gypsy music in Istanbul. Bettany's interest in women's history is reflected in music by a 9th-century female Byzantine composer, and Purcell's Dido and Aeneas. And she tells a touching musical story which shaped the history of her own family.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08qtdts)
What's the Point of the Conductor?

The Listening Service had a question from a listener :

"When I see the musicians playing, they seem to be looking at their sheet music, not the conductor. Can an orchestra not function perfectly well without a conductor? If I'm intensely moved by a piece of orchestral music, is it not the musicians which moved me? Why must I applaud some arbitrary conductor, who never touched a single instrument throughout the entire performance?"

Tom Service rises to the challenge and looks at the role of the conductor - is it all about their ego, their clothes, their ability to beat time or their emotional outpouring onstage - or it is something else entirely? Rethink music with The Listening Service.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b08qtdtv)

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08qtdtx)
The Dvorak Statement

At the same time as acclaimed Czech composer Antonin Dvorak was finalising the score of his New World Symphony, he was also causing a stir in the newspapers of New York and Paris by asserting that in the music of black America there was "all that is needed for a great and noble school of music." Out of step with many at the time, Dvorak was tapping into a rich seam of black creativity that is rarely heard or written about today. For BBC Radio 3 Mahan Esfahani heads to the USA to ask why we know more about Dvorak's statement than the history of African American classical music. He traces the roots of black American classical music to before emancipation, and through archives and orchestras discovers the histories, triumphs and obstacles faced by these early composers. On the road between New York and Detroit he meets historian Tammy Kernodle, Professor of American Music at Columbia University George Lewis, and composers Nkeiru Okoye, Trevor Weston, Lester St Louis and Pulitzer Prize winner Henry Threadgill to trace the history of African American Classical Music, and challenge his own views as to how and why this music came to be an integral part of the American musical identity.

Opera's answer to the Oscars, this annual red-carpet ceremony honours outstanding achievement, with awards including Singer of the Year, Opera Company of the Year and the annual Lifetime Achievement Award.


SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b06vp3c9)
El Cid

Pierre Corneille was one of France's three outstanding Classical dramatists, alongside Racine and Moliere. The Cid is his most famous - but in Britain too little-performed - play. The distinguished translator Ranjit Bolt's refashioning tells the story of the younger Cid, a self-indulgent, love-smitten courtier in 11th-century Spain who when duty calls rises to the occasion to become Spain's greatest hero.

The star-studded cast includes James Purefoy as the Cid, with Indira Varma as Ximena, Gina McKee as the Princess, and features Eleanor Bron and David Calder.

Rodrigo is a charming young courtier who plans to marry Ximena. But when her father, the chief general in the King's army, insults Rodrigo's father, he finds himself challenged by Rodrigo to a duel. The young, un-warlike suitor knows that if he loses he dies, but also that if he wins he loses Ximena. Pierre Corneille's landmark play examines the ethical and emotional dilemmas faced by the legendary champion-to-be, and his intended. It is a tale of love, honour and might, but in the great tradition of Racine and their other contemporary writers of tragedy, Corneille focuses on romantic dilemma, to show how lovers act under intense duress, and what choices - and perhaps compromises - they then make.

Bolt's translation is at once daring and faithful. He has observed the conventions of 17th century French Drama (rules imposed on his select group of writers by the infamous Cardinal Richelieu, intent on restoring classical virtues). But Bolt in customary fashion has dynamised the language and style.

Don Rodrigo .......... James Purefoy
Ximena ............... Indira Varma
Elvira ............... Eleanor Bron

A performance of Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil given last October in St Giles' Church, Cripplegate, by the BBC Singers under the Russian-American conductor Elena Sharkova.

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

9.30am  
Take part in our daily musical challenge: identify a piece of music played backwards.  

10am
Sarah's guest this week is one of the world's leading sound-recordists, Chris Watson. Chris started out as a musician, he was a founding member of the influential Sheffield-based experimental music group, Cabaret Voltaire, but he soon put the microphone to other uses enjoying a career recording sound for film, tv and radio. He has specialised in recording wildlife and natural phenomena, striving, in his words, to put the microphone where you can't put your ears. He has contributed to a number of David Attenborough documentaries in the Life and Frozen Planet series and has released albums of his field recordings. As well as discussing his work and life, Chris will be sharing some of his favourite classical music by composers including Britten, Messiaen and Felix Mendelssohn.

10.30am
Music in Time: Romantic
Sarah travels back to the start of the Romantic era, and a remarkable event on 22nd December, 1808: a four-hour benefit concert for Ludwig van Beethoven. It included the public premieres of his fifth and sixth symphonies, and also his Piano Concerto No.4 in G major; this was Beethoven's final appearance as concerto soloist, and as he sat down to play, he had a surprise in store...

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish mezzo-soprano, Anne Sofie von Otter. She's regarded as one of the finest singers of her generation, celebrated for her work on stage and in recital. She won a Grammy Award for her recording of Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and has been named Artist of the Year by both the International Record Critics Association and Gramophone. On the stage, she's renowned for her performances of Mozart, Handel and Richard Strauss, and in recital she excels in Romantic song. She has also collaborated with non-classical musicians such as Elvis Costello and Brad Mehldau. Sarah reflects this great diversity throughout the week with a selection encompassing intimate Dowland lute songs, song cycles by Robert Schumann and Ravel, and roles from opera and musical theatre.

Haugtussa, Op.67

Johann Strauss I and II, Invitation to the Waltz

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod charts the rise of Johann Strauss I and the emergence of the waltz from a rustic village dance into an elegant art-form sweeping Europe.

From its origins in the simple country dancing which came down river from the Black Forest, the waltz grew to become the signature tune of Viennese high society, and the Strauss family its most exuberant exponents. Johann Strauss the elder soon came to dominate the scene with his own high-octane orchestra and his ever-more sophisticated compositions. The highest levels of European society - including Queen Victoria - tripped the light fantastic to the music of the man who became known as the Waltz King.

True Venetian, Making up the City

Writer Polly Coles reads Making Up the City, the first of her essays in search of what makes a true Venetian. Beginning each essay with an object or a place, she traces a cultural and historical thread through to living individuals who are contributing to a rich and diverse contemporary Venetian culture. She argues the true Venetian does not have to be born in the city or a permanent resident to be part of a viable, creative future for this beleaguered community.

Beginning with Mariano Fortuny, painter, innovator and textile artist, Polly looks at Venetian artists who have engaged with their ancient home in a modern spirit and asks is it possible to make something new in this museum city?

Tuesday - Sarah Walker with Chris Watson

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
Sarah's guest this week is one of the world's leading sound-recordists, Chris Watson. Chris started out as a musician, he was a founding member of the influential Sheffield-based experimental music group, Cabaret Voltaire, but he soon put the microphone to other uses enjoying a career recording sound for film, tv and radio. He has specialised in recording wildlife and natural phenomena, striving, in his words, to put the microphone where you can't put your ears. He has contributed to a number of David Attenborough documentaries in the Life and Frozen Planet series and has released albums of his field recordings. As well as discussing his work and life, Chris will be sharing some of his favourite classical music.

10.30am
Music in Time: Medieval Era
Sarah focuses on England in the early 15th century, and the music of John Dunstable. His expressive melodies and sweet, sonorous harmonies brought him fame on the continent, where he was praised for his "contenance angloise", or English manner; his music also influenced the Burgundian composers of the early Renaissance.

Double Take
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two accounts of Dvorak's Slavonic Dance Op.72 No.3 in F major, by a pair of Czech conductors, recorded over 50 years apart: Karel Šejna and Jiří Bělohlávek.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish mezzo-soprano, Anne Sofie von Otter. She's regarded as one of the finest singers of her generation, celebrated for her work on stage and in recital. She won a Grammy Award for her recording of Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and has been named Artist of the Year by both the International Record Critics Association and Gramophone. On the stage, she's renowned for her performances of Mozart, Handel and Richard Strauss, and in recital she excels in Romantic song. She has also collaborated with non-classical musicians such as Elvis Costello and Brad Mehldau. Sarah reflects this great diversity throughout the week with a selection encompassing intimate Dowland lute songs, song cycles by Robert Schumann and Ravel, and roles from opera and musical theatre.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07f6q54)
Johann Strauss I and II, Father and Son

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod examines the turbulent relationship of Strauss father and son, their musical rivalry, and their involvement in the revolutions of 1848.

The Strauss family was never a model of happy cohesion: Johann the Elder forbade the son from following him into the profession, but the encouragement of his neglected mother led Johann the Younger to ignore his father's disapproval and forge his own path as composer and performer. Bitterness ensued, and acquired a political edge during the 1848 revolutions. Johann Vater was very much an establishment figure, deeply embedded with the unfashionable ancien regime, and he wrote unashamedly bombastic music supporting the conservative cause. His son however took sides with the trendy young rebels, and family peace only came with Johann senior's death.

The Ninth symphony was written at a very traumatic time in Mahler's life - his own health was failing and his daughter had just died, but according to Mahler this gave him a new energy for life and composing, planning his next symphonic work. Tonight's performance of this emotionally powerful work promises to be a highly intense experience with the commanding presence of Bernard Haitink conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b08r30mh)
True Venetian, True Venetian Islanders

Writer Polly Coles reads Islanders, the second of her essays in search of what makes a true Venetian. Beginning each essay with an object or a place, she traces a cultural and historical thread through to living individuals who are contributing to a rich and diverse contemporary Venetian culture. She argues the true Venetian does not have to be born in the city or a permanent resident to be part of a viable, creative future for this beleaguered community.

Polly begins in the medieval Jewish cemetery on the Lido and discusses how the island geography of Venice has allowed segregated and separate communities to evolve.

Producer: Melanie Harris Sparklab Productions.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b08r3147)
Nick Luscombe with Julie Byrne and Tomaga

The Great Escape in Brighton is one of the UK's leading festivals for new music. Last weekend Late Junction and BBC Music pushed past the throngs at the seaside and joined the 2017 edition of the festival to present a showcase of boundary-pushing, up-and-coming artists and DJs.

Nick airs highlights from our showcase all this week, starting tonight with Julie Byrne's intimate acoustic show, and concluding with Tomaga's dark, droney experiments with drums and electronics.

Byrne was born and raised in Buffalo, New York, and describes herself as a nomad, having lived in half-a-dozen America cities while working on her music. Alongside her art she has found time to study Environmental Science and act as a Seasonal Ranger in Central Park. Across her first two albums she has proved herself to be a sharp and poignant writer, one blessed with a mesmerising singing voice.

Tomaga, since their formation in 2013, have released four acclaimed albums that move between industrial, jazz, psychedelia and minimalism. They have also collaborated with major art galleries and toured with such musical luminaries as Deerhoof, Silver Apples, and Wire. The members of the band are Valentina Magaletti (of Raime, Vanishing Twin) and Tom Relleen (of The Oscillation).

Also on the programme this evening, hear music from psych singer Kerem Güney, jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby, and the one and only Stevie Wonder.

Johann Strauss I and II, Having a Ball

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod relishes the highly productive, joyous decade in which Strauss II's waltzes transcended their original function to become grand concert works.

The 1860s were a glorious ten years in which Johann Strauss II produced some of his most remarkable music, transforming the waltz he'd inherited from his father from a more civilised version of a country dance, into a highly sophisticated concert piece with endlessly long phrases, depth, and complexity: music which has stood the test of time and is an enduring part of Vienna's cultural heritage.

The Great Escape in Brighton is one of the UK's leading festivals for new music. Last weekend Late Junction and BBC Music pushed past the throngs at the seaside and joined the 2017 edition of the festival to present a showcase of boundary-pushing, up-and-coming artists and DJs.

Nick airs more highlights from the showcase tonight, starting with Ayanna Witter-Johnson's cello and cowbell solo set, and concluding with Hejira's eclectic and electric performance.

Witter-Johnson is currently readying her debut album, having dropped two EPs already. In 2012 she was nominated for a MOBO Award in the category of 'Best Jazz Act'. As an arranger and orchestrator she has worked with the London Symphony Orchestra, and she has featured on records by the likes of 4hero, Akala, Billy Jenkins, and Alex Webb.

Hejira formed in 2010 in South-East London and soon attracted the ears of Matthew Herbert, who became involved in the production of their debut album 'Prayer Before Birth', which was released in 2013. The band have recently channelled their proggy, jazzy, folky influences into a self-released EP called 'The Lima Limo Ceremony'.

Thursday - Sarah Walker with Chris Watson

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: identify the place associated with a well-known work.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is one of the world's leading sound-recordists, Chris Watson. Chris started out as a musician, he was a founding member of the influential Sheffield-based experimental music group, Cabaret Voltaire, but he soon put the microphone to other uses enjoying a career recording sound for film, tv and radio. He has specialised in recording wildlife and natural phenomena, striving, in his words, to put the microphone where you can't put your ears. He has contributed to a number of David Attenborough documentaries in the Life and Frozen Planet series and has released albums of his field recordings. As well as discussing his work and life, Chris will be sharing some of his favourite classical music.

10.30am
Music in Time:  Romantic
Sarah visits the Romantic era for a dazzling showpiece by Robert Schumann. He composed his Konzertstück in F major for 4 horns in 1849, not long after the chromatic valve-horn had been invented; the flexibility and potential of the new instrument are exploited in this highly virtuoso work - for many years considered virtually unplayable.

Double Take 
Sarah explores the dramatic differences between two interpretations of the verse anthem This is the Record of John, by Orlando Gibbons, contrasting the pioneering 1959 recording by the Choir of King's College, Cambridge under David Willcocks, with the folk-like interpretation by Red Byrd.

11am
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish mezzo-soprano, Anne Sofie von Otter. She's regarded as one of the finest singers of her generation, celebrated for her work on stage and in recital. She won a Grammy Award for her recording of Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and has been named Artist of the Year by both the International Record Critics Association and Gramophone. On the stage, she's renowned for her performances of Mozart, Handel and Richard Strauss, and in recital she excels in Romantic song. She has also collaborated with non-classical musicians such as Elvis Costello and Brad Mehldau. Sarah reflects this great diversity throughout the week with a selection encompassing intimate Dowland lute songs, song cycles by Robert Schumann and Ravel, and roles from opera and musical theatre.

Johann Strauss I and II, On the Stage

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod explores Johann II's move away from the dance hall to write a stream of operettas, most of which are now forgotten.

It was Johann Strauss II's wife who first twisted his arm to get him writing for the stage. Relieving himself of relentless waltz-conducting duties, Strauss now became converted to the art form and in the 1870s and 1880s turned out a string of operetta hits, most of which are now forgotten. The great exceptions are Die Fledermaus and Zigeunerbaron.

The artist Tom Phillips talks to Philip Dodd about his career as he marks his 80th birthday. His works range from sculptures, like a tennis ball with his own hair, to commissions for the Imperial War Museum and Peckham, and portraits of subjects including Sir Harrison Birtwistle and the Monty Python team. His interest in literature is seen in his version of Dante's Inferno and art made from reworking the text of a Victorian novel, in addition to his post card collection, photographic diaries and his role as a Royal Academician.

Connected Works by Tom Phillips runs at the Flowers Gallery Kingsland Road London from May 26th to July 1st.

Producer: Craig Smith.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b08r30n3)
True Venetian, Exhibitions and Exhibitionism

Writer Polly Coles reads Exhibitions and Exhibitionism, continuing in her search of what it might mean to be a true Venetian. Beginning each essay with an object or a place, she traces a cultural and historical thread through to living individuals who are contributing to a rich and diverse contemporary Venetian culture. She argues the true Venetian does not have to be born in the city or a permanent resident to be part of a viable, creative future for this beleaguered community.

Polly starts at the alternative beachcombers' Biennale on the Lido and ends with the work of some of the many Venetian artists revitalising the city today.

The Late Junction Mixtape with Ikonika

An exclusive mix by DJ, producer, and Hyperdub Records artist Ikonika, recorded live at Late Junction's showcase during The Great Escape festival in Brighton, last weekend.

Ikonika (real name Sara Abdel-Hamid) has two acclaimed albums under her belt and a third on the way, with 'Distractions' due for release in June. Born in West London to an Egyptian father and Filipino mother, she was drumming for hardcore bands before she'd even left school, and has since become one of the sharpest talents in post-dubstep electronic music. Her collaborators to date have included Azealia Banks, Chvrches, and Jessy Lanza.

The Late Junction Mixtape is a thirty-minute window through which compilers can show off the edges and extremes of their record collection. Recent mixes on the programme have come from Beatrice Dillon, Fenriz, and Tim Hecker.

Produced for Reduced Listening by Jack Howson.

Johann Strauss I and II, German Emperor

The story of the Waltz Kings: today Donald Macleod finds out how Strauss II, Austrian national hero enjoying the adulation of Europe, became a German citizen. Unknown to Strauss, the Nazis would later "alter" his ancestry.

In order to marry his third wife, Strauss converted to Protestantism and became a German citizen. He still longed to write a "serious" comic opera, but accolades from across the globe poured in as Vienna celebrated the anniversary of the first performance of its favoured son. In a bizarre twist of history however, Strauss's ancestry would later be falsely doctored by the Nazis.

The BBC Philharmonic in Berlioz's 'Symphonie fantastique', Arvo Pärt's 'Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten' and Dutilleux's Cello Concerto, 'Tout un monde lointain...'.

Live from the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Presented by Tom Redmond

Arvo Pärt: Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten
Dutilleux: 'Tout un monde lointain...' Concerto for cello and orchestra

8.15 Music interval

8.35pm
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique

Leonard Elschenbroich (cello)
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

With its startling and innovative use of the full palette of orchestra colour, Berlioz's fantasy takes us on an artist's opium-fuelled journey of tortured love and graphic horror. The compulsive melody and rhythms keep the audience entranced from first note to last and we share the protagonist's desperate unrequited love. The programme opens with a heartfelt meditation on loss of another kind, Arvo Pärt's 'Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten', reflecting on his deep sorrow at the death of a composer Pärt admired but just missed the opportunity of meeting. Dutilleux's 'Tout un monde lointain...' is also a tribute to the work and gifts of another artist. Here, in a piece written for Britten's friend Rostropovich, Dutilleux meditates on poetry by Baudelaire - reflection which inspires expressive music for the solo cello and tantalising textures for the orchestra.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b08r301r)
The Verb on Return

This week we're looking the possibilities of looking back. Joining Ian McMillan are...

Novelist and essayist Tim Winton has been twice shortlisted for the Booker prize for his novels 'The Riders' and 'Dirt Music'. In his new book 'The Boy Behind the Curtain: Notes From an Australian Life', he returns to his childhood.

The comedian Stewart Lee has honed the art of the callback over a long career writing for television and radio alongside his stand-up touring schedule.

Angie Hobbs is the Professor of the Public Understanding of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield. It's been many years since she's read Milan Kundera's cult classic 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being', and we've asked her to return to the text.

Bea Roberts wrote and performed 'Infinity Pool', a modern retelling of Madame Bovary and a hit at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe. For The Verb, we've asked her to tackle the language of the Tripadvisor review.

True Venetian, Women's Work

Writer Polly Coles reads Women's Work, the last of her essays in search of what makes a true Venetian. Beginning each essay with an object or a place, she traces a cultural and historical thread through to living individuals who are contributing to a rich and diverse contemporary Venetian culture. She argues the true Venetian does not have to be born in the city or a permanent resident to be part of a viable, creative future for this beleaguered community.

Polly begins at the deconsecrated church of Sant'Anna - once a convent - in search of the armies of anonymous female artisans who for centuries serviced the Venetian textile industry.
