Katie selects music from some of his most iconic ballets and talks to the current Royal Ballet director, Kevin O'Hare, about Ashton's significance, ahead of a revival of The Dream at Covent Garden.

John Adams's Doctor Atomic

Presented by Andrew McGregor

John Adams:

Director: Kenneth Richardson
John Adams (conductor)

John Adams conducts his 2005 operatic docudrama about Dr J Robert Oppenheimer and the first detonation of an atomic bomb in the desert near Los Alamos, New Mexico, on 16 July 1945. A troubling and ever-contemporary story, Adams follows the characters involved in the Manhattan Project over two days: an evening in June 1945 and night of the test itself. The libretto, created by Peter Sellars, draws on original source material, including personal memoirs, recorded interviews, technical manuals of nuclear physics, declassified government documents and poetry.

This performance was recorded at the Barbican on 25 April, to great acclaim. In the words of The Guardian: "You couldn't fault the performance. Adams's conducting, second to none in his own music, had tremendous conviction and unique authority, with every facet of the score's terrible beauty laid bare. There was thrilling playing and choral singing from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Singers. Returning to the role he created in 2005, Gerald Finley conveyed Oppenheimer's moral agony with singing of great refinement and subtlety: Batter My Heart, in which scientific wonder gives way to the awareness of the enormity of what he is about to unleash, was overwhelming.".


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b08skymz)
Water Towers of New York

British sculptor Rachel Whiteread calls the wooden water towers on the roofs of New York's skyscrapers - 'the jewels of the architectural cityscape'.

If you look down from a high floor in New York, you'll see a landscape of differing levels of flat roofs of low- and high-rise buildings. They have one thing in common, if they are over six stories high they need a roof-top tank to store water. These rocket shaped towers look different according to the light, season and weather and appear to have personalities. Visitors find them particularly fascinating.

Award-winning sound designer Jon Nicholls builds a musical and haunting soundscape. We stand perched on the roof of a high residential building in the Chelsea district downtown and witness the destruction of an old tower and watch the assembly of the new tank. It's like a jigsaw puzzle.

The highly functional towers have inspired artists who take these quaint prosaic structures and reimagine them. Sculptors Rachel Whiteread and Tom Fruin have made life size water towers out of resin and Perspex.

We visit the Museum of Modern Art where Whiteread's luminous water tank has been overlooking the garden for twenty years.
In contrast, we explore a very ephemeral art event - a pop-up nightclub with cabaret music that takes place secretly inside a decommissioned tank on the roof of a deserted building.

And there's local photographer Ronnie Farley, who not only spent 20 years taking pictures of New York's water tanks but also has assembled one in her loft apartment. She says, "I feel that these water towers are witnesses. They watch us. They look after us."

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08sl8wb)
Ivo van Hove

Michael Berkeley talks to the award-winning theatre director Ivo van Hove about his musical passions.

The director of Amsterdam's prestigious Toneelgroep theatre, Ivo works all over the world, notably with the New York Theatre Workshop and at the Barbican in London. Equally at home with Sophocles, Shakespeare and contemporary American drama, he won huge acclaim for his stripped-back production of Tony Kushner's Angels in America, and his recent A View From The Bridge with the Young Vic won, among many other awards, two Oliviers and two Tonys.

Ivo talks to Michael Berkeley about working with David Bowie on his musical Lazarus; about the close working and personal relationship with his partner, the designer Jan Versweyveld; and the dramatic decision he made to leave law school at the age of 20 to pursue a life in theatre.

His musical choices reflect the emotional intensity and sparse aesthetic of his directing style, with pieces by Brad Mehldau, Webern and Ligeti, as well as songs by Rufus Wainwright and Joni Mitchell.

SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b08slbm0)
Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival 2017

Lucie Skeaping introduces performances from The Carnival Band and vocal students from the University of York in an edition from Beverley Minster as part of the Beverley and East Riding Early Music Festival.

This festival, which also forms part of the Hull UK City of Culture celebrations, includes a fascinating exhibition "Through the Looking Glass" which comes direct from Antwerp Cathedral, ahead of a pan-European tour that ends in New York. The music manuscripts of the German-Dutch Petrus Alamire (1470 - 1536) belonged to some of the most glittering personalities of the time and are some of the most decorated illustrated choirbooks in history, with some of the most intriguing stories. They portray the opulent world of the 16th century, lived in by rulers, noblemen, musicians and even spies.

The exhibition features the installation "Speculum Musurgica" by Flemish visual and music artist Rudi Knoops. The heptagonal media installation, which will fill the Minster transept both visually and audibly, consists of large-scale mirror structures and sound projections inviting visitors to walk in and around them, as the physical choirbooks themselves would have done. Two seven-voice compositions are performed by Paul Van Nevel and the Huelgas Ensemble from Leuven, and they provide a snapshot of the time, where music united performers and audiences through storytelling and imagery.

Also ahead of Cinquecento's first UK tour in July, baritone Tim Scott Whiteley introduces the music of the Flemish renaissance composer and priest Jean Guyot, and discusses the groups recently released recording of Guyot's Te Deum.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08slgky)
Hay Festival 2017

In a special edition of The Listening Service recorded live at this year's Hay Festival of Literature and the Arts, Tom is joined by the composer Richard Sisson (at the piano), and poet Gillian Clarke to discuss the art of setting words to music. From the thwarted romance of Lieder to the game-changing musicals of Stephen Sondheim and the era-defining pop songs of Jarvis Cocker, finding the perfect synergy between written word and musical note is an elusive art. Tom and his guests explore just how it's done and by the end of the show they'll have created their own setting live in front of the eyes and ears of the Hay audience.

Part of Radio 3's week-long residency at Hay Festival, with Lunchtime Concert, In Tune, Free Thinking, The Verb and The Listening Service all broadcasting from the festival.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08slgl2)
The Killers

Adam Smith traces Ernest Hemingway's brutal, brilliant short story - from its birth in gangster-era Chicago, through its Hollywood afterlife as a noir classic, to its strange status as Ronald Reagan's last movie.

Ernest Hemingway wrote his short story 'The Killers' in 1926. Two hitmen enter a small-town lunch-room. They have come to kill an ex-boxer who has double-crossed someone. The boxer is warned, but doesn't run.

Hemingway captures the American man at a moral crossroads. Should he follow the code of the boxing ring, where a man proves himself, and go down fighting? Or should he grab the easy money and throw in his lot with the gangsters?

Hollywood loved it - and so Adam traces how a colourful cast of characters turned this short, sharp story into two very different movies.

The first, in 1946, is a black-and-white noir classic. It was the brainchild of Mark Hellinger, a producer who was all too friendly with real-life gangsters like Bugsy Siegel. It made the names of its new stars, Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner. But its main screenwriter - Hemingway's friend and fellow boxing fan John Huston - went unsung.

The next, in 1964, was much gaudier. At the heart of this version is a truly bizarre scene. Ronald Reagan, his acting career on the slide, reluctantly agreed to play a violent crook who is pretending to be a legitimate businessman.

And yet this hinted at the pasts of the producers of this movie. They too had long-time links with the gang world, stretching right back to Al Capone's Chicago.

It was meant for TV but was deemed too violent. Especially as it featured a scene queasily similar to the assassination of President Kennedy, which happened on the second day of shooting. And the sniper? Future President Ronald Reagan.

And so finally Adam explores how this failing actor ended up playing a role that catches the delicate moral line between playing by the rules and doing whatever it takes to get rich. Just as he was about to launch his career as a political megastar.

Producer: Phil Tinline.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b08slgl6)
My Own Life

In 2015 Oliver Sacks published, My Own Life, announcing that he was terminally ill.

In 1776 David Hume discovered he was mortally ill and wrote his autobiography, My Own Life.

Sacks looked to Hume's work as inspiration for how to have a good death. Sacks faced his final months with a promise to himself to live 'in the richest, deepest, most productive way I can' encouraged by the words of Hume. He writes of a clarity of purpose while at the same time detaching himself from the inessentials of life. Sack's admiration for Hume is explicit in his choice of titles.

Hume's work was published posthumously in 1777 and there was a great deal of curiosity and consternation - how would this avowed atheist approach death with no prospect of an afterlife?

This is an opportunity to hear the Sacks and the Hume, alongside the account written by James Boswell of visiting the dying Hume (later described as the journalistic coup of the 18th century), and the letter written by Adam Smith to Hume's publisher about his passing. Smith's letter does exactly what he says: 'My account, therefore, shall begin where he ends'. Smith completes Hume's own work. The two documents were published together in 1777.

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

9.30am  
Take part in today's musical challenge: listen to the clues and identify a mystery musical object.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the comedian, writer and actor, Chris Addison. Chris is well known for appearances in 'The Thick of It', 'Mock the Week', 'Have I Got News for You' and 'Live at the Apollo', as well as producing and directing the American TV series ' Veep'. He also co-wrote and starred in the political satire 'The Department' for BBC Radio 4. Chris's passion for classical music started at a young age, and with his school choir he made recordings with the Hallé Orchestra. More recently, he appeared in a production of Chabrier's opera 'L'Étoile' at the Royal Opera House. As well as discussing his comedy and acting work, Chris shares some of his favourite classical music throughout the week by composers including Chabrier, Britten and Márquez.

10.30am
Music on Location: Zimmerman's Coffee House, Leipzig
Rob explores music connected with Zimmerman's Coffee House in Leipzig composed by J.S. Bach. As well running the music at St Thomas' Church, Bach was also responsible for Leipzig's Collegium Musicum, who performed at Zimmerman's on Fridays. It is thought that Bach's 'Coffee Cantata' was written for one such occasion.

11am
Artist of the Week: Claudio Abbado
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Italian conductor Claudio Abbado. Abbado is considered one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century and remains one of the few chosen to be Principal Conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. After studying in his native Milan, and later Vienna, he won the Koussevitzky Conducting Competition. He also won the Dimitri Mitropoulos Prize which allowed him to assist Leonard Bernstein at the New York Philharmonic. He's held major posts at La Scala, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna State Opera and the Berlin Philharmonic. After Berlin he founded a number of orchestras: the European Union Youth, the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, the Lucerne Festival Orchestra and Orchestra Mozart, which he led until his death in 2014. Abbado will be long remembered for his conducting, but also for his enterprise and his championing of contemporary music. From a vast discography, Rob has chosen to feature Abbado in Beethoven with the Berlin Philharmonic, Bach and Mozart with Orchestra Mozart, Tchaikovsky with the New Philharmonia, and Prokofiev with the London Symphony Orchestra.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b06xwwjq)
Other People (Hell Is...), Strangers

Acclaimed writer A L Kennedy muses on the hell that is other people, kicking off with strangers.

In Jean Paul Sartre's Play 'No Exit' one character declares, 'L'Enfer - c'est les autres' - hell is other people, and A L Kennedy has found herself very much behind this idea. As someone so unable to deal with other people that she works at home, making up imaginary friends, who even then don't always behave, she admits to not necessarily being the best person to dish out advice on relationships. However, in this series she wonders whether she's perhaps been a little harsh when it comes to 'other people'.

Today, she reveals why, despite being a solitary novelist with an existential fear of strangers, she has found herself hugging the odd one in the street.

Written and read by A L Kennedy, the award-winning novelist, dramatist and broadcaster.

Monteverdi 450: Les Talens Lyriques
Live from St John's Smith Square, Christophe Rousset directs Les Talens Lyriques in music by Monteverdi and his contemporaries. In a programme that they have called 'Zefiro Torna,' this leading French early music ensemble explore the opposition between life's beauties and death's violence as portrayed by Monteverdi. Born four hundred and fifty years ago this year, Monteverdi was the pivotal figure as music moved from the polyphonic world of the Renaissance to the solo voice and instrumental world of the Baroque. Les Talens Lyrique's programme draws on some of the most beautiful music from Monteverdi's madrigals of Love and War and also from his ground breaking operas, L'Incoronazione di Poppea and Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in patria. As Les talens Lyriques say: "All human sentiments are here, from the the lightest to the most profound, all captured in music that even today sounds astonishingly modern."

Rob's guest this week is the comedian, writer and actor, Chris Addison. Chris is well known for appearances in 'The Thick of It', 'Mock the Week', 'Have I Got News for You' and 'Live at the Apollo', as well as producing and directing the American TV series ' Veep'. He also co-wrote and starred in the political satire 'The Department' for BBC Radio 4.

More recently, he appeared in a production of Chabrier's opera 'L'Étoile' at the Royal Opera House. As well as discussing his comedy and acting work, Chris shares some of his favourite classical music throughout the week by composers including Chabrier, Britten and Márquez.

10.30am
Music on Location: The Steppes of Central Asia
Rob explores music by Borodin which is connected with the Steppes of Central Asia. West meets East in Borodin's famous tone poem as a peaceful Russian song meets the sound of horses and camels and the melancholy notes of an oriental melody.

Artist of the Week: Claudio Abbado
Rob's Artist of the Week is the Italian conductor Claudio Abbado.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b06xyp2n)
Other People (Hell Is...), Family

Acclaimed writer A L Kennedy muses on the hell that is other people, today looking at family.

As someone so unable to deal with other people that she works at home, making up imaginary friends, who even then don't always behave, A L Kennedy admits to not necessarily being the best person to dish out advice on relationships. However, in this series she wonders whether she's perhaps been a little harsh when it comes to 'other people'.

Written and read by A L Kennedy, the award-winning novelist, dramatist and broadcaster.
Producer: Justine Willett.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b08sqw5h)
Verity Sharp with a Jeff Mills mixtape

Jeff Mills - turntablist, producer, composer, Axis Records label boss, and founder of Detroit techno collective Underground Resistance - compiles a Late Junction mix. He has thirty minutes to curate a distinctive sonic space and indulge the extremities of his record collection.

Mills began his career back in the early 1980s using the name "The Wizard", and quickly become one of Detroit's hottest DJs, in clubs and on the radio. He then started the influential group Underground Resistance with former Parliament bass player 'Mad' Mike Banks, marrying techno with socio-political resistance. His recent output has been largely themed around space, with electronic-classical fusion as his stylistic palette. This year he was recognised for his significant contributions to the arts in France, being named an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters.

Elsewhere in the programme, hear delicious music from Waffles, BANANA, and Bang On A Can pianist Vicky Chow.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

As someone so unable to deal with other people that she works at home, making up imaginary friends, who even then don't always behave, A L Kennedy admits to not necessarily being the best person to dish out advice on relationships. However, in this series she wonders whether she's perhaps been a little harsh when it comes to 'other people'.

Today she tackles fullscale, walking on sunshine, singing in the rain love - surely the most terrifying word of all that we associate with 'other people'.

Written and read by A L Kennedy, the award-winning novelist, dramatist and broadcaster.
Producer: Justine Willett.
