9.30am – Building a Library
Composer: Samuel Coleridge-Taylor
Reviewer: Ivan Hewett

Ivan Hewett and Andrew survey recordings of the composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. He was born in 1875 in Holborn, London, and was of mixed European and African descent. He studied composition under Charles Villiers Stanford and was later helped by Edward Elgar. Coleridge-Taylor sought to do for traditional African music what Brahms did for Hungarian music and Dvořák for Bohemian music. He died at 37 of pneumonia, probably made worse by the stress of his financial situation. His most famous work is Hiawatha's Wedding Feast. But there are many other discoveries to be made.

Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nurnburg

Sir Antonio Pappano conducts Wagner's epic comedy. Walther wants to marry Eva, but is only allowed do so if he wins the song contest held by the local guild of mastersingers.

Bryn Terfel sings the central role of Hans Sachs. Gwyn Hughes Jones is Walther, and Rachel Willis Sorensen is Eva.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b08t15gx)
Nishat Khan

Nishat Khan is one of India's finest musicians; born into a dynasty of famous sitar players, he first went on stage with his father and uncle when he was only seven. Since that first appearance in Calcutta in the 1970s, he has performed worldwide, collaborated with all kinds of musicians, from Philip Glass to Gregorian choirs to Django Bates, and composed both for the BBC Proms and for Bollywood films. He's here in Britain to appear at the Aldeburgh Festival this June, fresh from recording the soundtrack to a Bollywood movie.

In Private Passions he talks to Michael Berkeley about the musical family he grew up in - he started playing the sitar before he could even walk. He explores too the spiritual meaning of music within this tradition and its power to reveal the voice of God. And he shares his excitement at discovering Western classical music, still very much a minority taste in India.

Nishat Khan's choices include Bach's B Minor Mass; Bruckner's 8th Symphony; Mozart, Manuel de Falla; Britten's "Sea Interludes"; and sitar music played by his father and uncle.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08t15sq)
The Power of Three

From medieval English music to the Everly Brothers - what is it about the musical interval of the third that sounds so attractive? Why does a major third tend to feel positive, and a minor third tend to feel sad? Nature or nurture? And what about their dark cousin, the tritone - the so-called "Devil in Music" - what on earth is that sinister about a couple of notes?
Tom Service is joined by Dr Adam Ockelford to try and find some answers.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08tr8y0)
Frost-Heron

Art historian Michael Bird is in St Ives to explore the bond between two ground-breaking abstract artists. Terry Frost was a light bulb salesman whose family ridiculed his ambitions to become an artist. Patrick Heron was a well-connected aesthete whose parents nurtured his talent from childhood.

Despite their differences, the two men formed an unlikely and lifelong friendship, pioneering brilliant use of colour and space to become two of the most important abstract artists of their generation.

Through archive interviews, including some broadcast for the first time, Michael Bird revises their ground-breaking contribution to modern art.

Booker Prize winner A S Byatt describes why she choose Heron to paint her portrait. She also reveals that both men enjoyed watching Marilyn Monroe films together!

Bird also meets Sir Alan Bowness, former director of the Tate, who owns paintings by both artists.

For Terry Frost, painting was about feeling, sensuality and movement. For Heron, the canvas was a space to explore radical technical and intellectual challenges.

But success was short-lived as their pioneering work was soon eclipsed by the American Abstract Expressionists. The parochial St Ives tag became a "dirty word" among Londoncentric art critics. Sales of Frost's work dried up while Heron rattled against the "cultural chauvinism" of the American "propaganda machine".

But both men continued to work, discover and innovate right up their deaths, within three years of each other.

As Tate St Ives prepares to open a new wing dedicated to the St Ives school, and plans for a major Heron exhibition are under way, Michael Bird asks why we should still be looking at Heron and Frost.

A Traveller's Guide to Paterson

American poet William Carlos Williams's poly-vocal epic poem 'Paterson' is a portrait of his favoured city in New Jersey where he worked as a doctor. Michael Symmons Roberts presents a portrait of the same city today in reportage and documentary alongside a fictional drama which responds to events described in Williams's poem.

Roberts travels to New Jersey to meet William Carlos Williams's family, friends, academics and community figures to explore Paterson and the stories in the poem. His new writing, commentary and interviews all arise from a direct engagement with the city and the poem, responding to the place as it stands - politically and economically.

Recorded at a political and economic turning point for the USA, Michael Symmons Roberts tests today's Paterson against the place Williams knew, and asks if the poet's warnings about the effects of modernization and technology were prescient, or merely nostalgic. Walking the same streets, visiting the same districts, calling at the same buildings, this programme opens up a great 20th-century poetic masterwork and at the same time create a new dramatic work, reportage and documentary - a new 'Paterson'.

William Carlos Williams wasn't from Paterson. He was an outsider. Michael is also a different kind of outsider who, like Williams is interested in the bigger picture - the state of the nation, looking through the intimate lens of small-town America to comment on it

Paterson is a mid-sized industrial town in New Jersey, USA. In 1963, the great American poet William Carlos Williams published his masterwork. It had taken him almost three decades to write and consisted of five books of poetry, reported speech, fragmentary reflection and conversations with other Patersonites, including Williams's fellow poet Allen Ginsberg. It is a truly epic piece of work, still regarded as a jewel of modernist writing.
Williams knew the city intimately, not just as a poet, but as a father, a friend, a doctor working in the community. Turning his back on the grand abstractions and international perspectives of his fellow modernists Eliot and Pound, Williams dug into what he called 'the local'.
Paterson is a poetic monument to, and personification of, the city of Paterson, New Jersey, which was Williams's hometown. Its three driving themes are Paterson the Man, Paterson the City, and Identity. At the heart of the poem is an in-depth questioning of the burgeoning process of modernization and its effects.
A half century on, the town of Paterson has a population just under 150,000. It has large communities of Puerto Ricans, Bangladeshis and a Muslim population substantial enough to warrant Muslim holidays for all the town's public schools.

As with many American cities, recession, unemployment , crime and social unrest in Paterson have grown in recent years.

All of this is explored in A Traveller's Guide to Paterson.

Take part in today's musical challenge: identify a piece of music played in reverse.

10am
Rob's guest in the week of BBC Music Day is the musician Imogen Heap. Imogen is best known as a singer-songwriter, but she's composed music for film and theatre as well as working in sound engineering and production. She's written music for the West End show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She is also at the forefront of musical technological innovation with her recent development of musical gloves and a new way of running the music industry called Mycelia. Imogen is named after the composer Imogen Holst and is passionate about a wide range of classical music. As well as talking about her life and work, throughout the week she'll be sharing music by composers including Debussy, Steve Reich and Arvo Pärt.

10.30am
Music on Location: Paris
Rob explores music connected with Paris by Mozart. The composer penned his Paris Symphony whilst visiting the city in 1778 and wowed the local audience.

Artist of the Week: Alisa Weilerstein
Rob's featured artist is the American cellist Alisa Weilerstein, who made her concert debut at the age of 13 and was soon recognised as an artist with exceptional powers of communication. Always a keen promoter of contemporary music, Weilerstein brings her radiant tone to the Seven Tunes Heard in China by the Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng, one of the pieces Rob's chosen to feature this week. She's joined by her parents, the violinist Donald Weilerstein and the pianist Vivian Hornik Weilerstein, for an emotionally potent performance of Schumann's G minor Piano Trio, and she can also be heard in a trio of concertos: Dvořák's evergreen Cello Concerto, the searingly dramatic 2nd Cello Concerto of Shostakovich, and the perennially affecting Elgar Concerto with Staatskapelle Berlin under Daniel Barenboim.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08t18jj)
Georges Bizet (1838-1875), The Boy from Montmartre

Despite writing what is possibly the best known opera in the world, Alexandre César Leopold Bizet would seldom enjoy success during his lifetime. (He never even got to use all his given names, but instead was known as 'Georges'!)

A man of multiple love affairs who became devoted to his neurotic wife; a superb pianist who studiously avoided the concert stage; a man for ever associated with Spain, even though he'd never been there - George Bizet is a mass of contradictions. As well as composing what is arguably the world's best known and most popular opera, Bizet also composed some spectacular flops. Always seeking popular as well as critical success, that was the very thing that eluded him during his lifetime. And yet, despite the caustic discouragement of Parisian reviewers, Bizet wrote songs and operas of astonishing beauty, even if the plots and libretti didn't always match the composer's dramatic sense.

Donald Macleod recounts Bizet's humble origins as the son of a hairdresser and self-appointed singing teacher. Entering the Paris Conservatoire, he made rapid progress under Charles Gounod, writing a delightful symphony, and competing for the prestigious Prix de Rome, with the chance to travel to the Eternal City and enjoy the sights and sounds of Italy.

Aurora Orchestra - Richard Ayres and Brahms

Adam Tomlinson presents a concert of Richard Ayres and Brahms (his First Symphony, given from memory) by Aurora Orchestra and Nicholas Collon at Symphony Hall in Birmingham on June 6th.

Richard Ayres: No 42 'In the Alps' (an animated concert)

8.20pm INTERVAL

8.40pm
Brahms: Symphony No.1 in C minor, Op.68

Mary Bevan (soprano)
Aurora Orchestra
Nicholas Collon (conductor)

Brahms's First Symphony is the starting point for tonight's concert, a work which took Brahms 14 years to complete, so greatly did he feel the weight of Beethoven's legacy. And in fact the big tune in the finale does nod to the one in Beethoven's 9th - "any ass can see that", Brahms conceded. The famous 'alphorn' theme is itself a springboard for Richard Ayres's NONcerto No 42 'In the Alps', which combines theatrical elements and film with a virtuosic score. Mary Bevan is the soloist in the unnervingly magical story of a girl stranded on a mountain top as a baby, after a plane crash. She's taught to sing by the alpine animals and falls in love with the distant trumpet-playing of a boy in the valley below. What could possibly go wrong?

Following tonight's concert, there'll be a chance to hear recordings by previous winners in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, ahead of the 2017 final this weekend.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b069x6kt)
A Short History of Indian Art, The King of Varanasi's Hunting Expedition

William Dalrymple tells a remarkable history of India through five classic images of Indian art and sculpture. He describes their place within the major artistic movements of India and their role in the unfolding history of one of the world's most diverse cultures.

He begins with a masterpiece of Buddhist art - the cave paintings of Ajanta, now in Maharashtra State and dating from before the 1st Century BC. He explains the history of these dramatic rock-cut caves and the superbly preserved mural art on the walls inside that tell stories from the lives of the Buddha. 'The Ajanta cave paintings are now recognised as the finest picture gallery to survive anywhere from any ancient civilization'. He is particularly taken by paintings showing the King of Varanasi; bow in hand, out on a hunting expedition.

A Short History of Indian Art is a Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 3. The producer is Anthony Denselow.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Imogen Heap

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: two pieces of music are played together - can you identify them?

10am
Rob's guest in the week of BBC Music Day is the musician Imogen Heap. Imogen is best known as a singer-songwriter, but she's composed music for film and theatre as well as working in sound engineering and production. She's written music for the West End show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She is also at the forefront of musical technological innovation with her recent development of musical gloves and a new way of running the music industry called Mycelia. Imogen is named after the composer Imogen Holst and is passionate about a wide range of classical music. Throughout the week she'll be sharing some of her favourite classical music as well as discussing her life and work.

10.30am
Music on Location: Tribschen, Switzerland
Rob explores music connected with Tribschen, a district of Lucerne in Switzerland. For a time the composer Richard Wagner lived in Tribschen, which overlooks the stunning Lake Lucerne, and it's where he composed Siegfried Idyll as a birthday present for his wife Cosima.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of Brahms's Intermezzo in E flat minor, Op.118 No.6, by Walter Gieseking and Arcadi Volodos.

11am
Artist of the Week: Alisa Weilerstein
Rob's featured artist is the American cellist Alisa Weilerstein, who made her concert debut at the age of 13 and was soon recognised as an artist with exceptional powers of communication. Always a keen promoter of contemporary music, Weilerstein brings her radiant tone to the Seven Tunes Heard in China by the Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng, one of the pieces Rob's chosen to feature this week. She's joined by her parents, the violinist Donald Weilerstein and the pianist Vivian Hornik Weilerstein, for an emotionally potent performance of Schumann's G minor Piano Trio, and she can also be heard in a trio of concertos: Dvořák's evergreen Cello Concerto, the searingly dramatic 2nd Cello Concerto of Shostakovich, and the perennially affecting Elgar Concerto with Staatskapelle Berlin under Daniel Barenboim.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08t18js)
Georges Bizet (1838-1875), The Rome Years

To enter the prestigious Prix de Rome was no mean undertaking, and Bizet did it twice, succeeding on his second attempt.

A man of multiple love affairs who became devoted to his neurotic wife; a superb pianist who studiously avoided the concert stage; a man for ever associated with Spain, even though he'd never been there - George Bizet is a mass of contradictions. As well as composing what is arguably the world's best known and most popular opera - Carmen - Bizet also composed some spectacular flops. Always seeking popular as well as critical success, that was the very thing that eluded him during his lifetime. And yet, despite the caustic discouragement of Parisian reviewers, Bizet wrote songs and operas of astonishing beauty, even if the plots and libretti didn't always match the composer's dramatic sense.

In today's episode George Bizet experiences the sights, sounds and indeed smells of Rome, living in the Villa Medici alongside artists, poets and sculptors. The only condition for this student grant was that he would send back to Paris a composition to prove his diligence in pursuit of his art. Not that Bizet would forego all worldly pleasures in the single-minded pursuit of that endeavour.

Igor Levit (piano)

Former Radio 3 New Generation Artist Igor Levit and still in his late twenties, has been hailed as 'one of the most probing, intelligent and accomplished artists of the new generation' (New York Times), and 'set to be one of this century's big names' (Daily Telegraph). His concert cycle of the complete Beethoven piano sonatas at Wigmore Hall began last September, and concludes tonight with three of the greatest (also the three last) - the intimate and serene E major Op 109, the brooding but ultimately triumphant A flat major Op 110, and the transcendental, almost mystical C minor, Op 111.

'One imagines Beethoven playing it like this - in his dreams anyway'. (The Times)

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b069ydr4)
A Short History of Indian Art, Arjuna's Penance

Two giant boulders of pink granite near the Bay of Bengal in modern Tamil Nadu are the focus of Dalrymple's second essay in the series 'A Short History of Indian Art'.

It was here, in the 7th century, that master carvers created a giant open-air relief that tells many stories, including the well-known tale of how the sacred River Ganges fell to earth as well as depicting the penance of Arjuna, one of the heroes of Indian mythology. This huge and intricate carving remains one of the most powerful pieces of open-air art anywhere in the world.

Dalrymple describes the importance of South India at this time and the emergence of the Pallava dynasty. He introduces us to the fascinating story surrounding the patron of South Indian sculpture, the great monarch Mahendra. These kings of Tamil Nadu generated incredible wealth, thanks to their control over the spice and silk trade, and powered a period of profound artistic production and temple building. From their great port of Mahabalipuram (now a sleepy tourist resort) the Pallava kings created a vibrant new approach to art that was widely exported.
William tells the remarkable story of Arjuna's Penance / The Descent of the Ganges. He describes its place within the major artistic movements of India and its role in the unfolding history of one of the world's most diverse cultures.

'A Short History of Indian Art' is a Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 3. The producer is Anthony Denselow.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b08t4tbq)
Verity Sharp with Klein live in session

Fresh from winning a special commendation at the Oram Awards, the electronic musician Klein is live in session with Verity Sharp to announce a special event that Late Junction will be curating later this year. Since releasing her debut album early last year, Klein has been acclaimed for her genre mashing blend of impressionistic electronics, soulful vocals and snatches of found sound. Along with peers Yves Tumor and Dean Blunt she is carving out a space for greater experimentation in the current crop of electronic vocal artists.

Also on the programme, choral music by Norwegian composer Tord Kalvenes, sound art that takes its inspiration from the rivers of the world by Australian artist Leah Barclay, and Sufi trance ritual meets industrial electronics courtesy of Tunisian ensemble Ifriqiyya Electrique.

Georges Bizet (1838-1875), Pearl Fishing in Paris

After the prize of staying in Rome with a full student grant, Bizet must return to Paris and make his own way in the world.

A man of multiple love affairs who became devoted to his neurotic wife; a superb pianist who studiously avoided the concert stage; a man for ever associated with Spain, even though he'd never been there - George Bizet is a mass of contradictions. As well as composing what is arguably the world's best known and most popular opera - Carmen - Bizet also composed some spectacular flops. Always seeking popular as well as critical success, that was the very thing that eluded him during his lifetime. And yet, despite the caustic discouragement of Parisian reviewers, Bizet wrote songs and operas of astonishing beauty, even if the plots and libretti didn't always match the composer's dramatic sense.

In today's episode, Bizet returns from Italy to rush to his mother's sickbed. He comforts her, and he in turn is comforted by his mother's nurse - by whom he fathers a son. Despite his prodigious gifts as a pianist (praised by no less a genius than Franz Liszt) Bizet studiously avoids the concert platform, instead eking out a living through proof-reading, writing humdrum piano transcriptions and teaching piano. He will also write The Pearl Fishers.

Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla (conductor)

Shrovetide in old Russia, and passions surge as the crowds throng the spring Fair, and with them the instantly recognisable sound-world of Stravinsky's ballet Petrushka. But passions aren't for puppets... are they? Even the smaller orchestra of Stravinsky's 1947 revision leaves no room for magical doubt in this "creed of colour, movement, and illusion". Then, Steven Osborne with the confidently symphonic piano concerto that a young maverick Tippett wrote specially for the CBSO, with its visionary middle movement. And for a rousing end, Beethoven's heroic Leonore Overture No.3.

Following tonight's concert, there'll be a chance to hear recordings by previous winners in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, ahead of the 2017 final this weekend.

Dalrymple tells the story of this scholar ruler who was also a musician, poet and singer, who commissioned many of the greatest artists of the day who arrived at his court from as far afield as Central Asia and Europe. He was a free thinker who saw himself as both a devout Muslim and a Hindu devotee.
Dalrymple offers a profile of this important yet little-known Sultan and describes the remarkable explosion of artistic activity he oversaw

'A Short History of Indian Art' is a Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 3. The producer is Anthony Denselow.

BBC Music Day - Rob Cowan with guest Imogen Heap

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 work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

10am
Rob's guest on BBC Music Day is the musician Imogen Heap. Imogen is best known as a singer-songwriter, but she's composed music for film and theatre as well as working in sound engineering and production. She's written music for the West End show Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and the film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. She is also at the forefront of musical technological innovation with her recent development of musical gloves and a new way of running the music industry called Mycelia. Imogen is named after the composer Imogen Holst and is passionate about a wide range of classical music. Throughout the week she'll be sharing some of her favourite classical music as well as discussing her life and work.

10.30am
Music on Location: New England
Rob explores music connected with New England by Ives. In a sequence of ground-breaking and intensely evocative tone poems Ives portrays Three Places in New England which reflect the region's Civil War history and natural landscape.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of Monteverdi's madrigal 'Chiome d'oro, bel tesoro', with ensembles led by composer Nadia Boulanger, whose recording from the mid-1930s was one of the first made of Monteverdi's music, and a leading 21st-century Renaissance music director, Christina Pluhar.

11am
Artist of the Week: Alisa Weilerstein
Rob's featured artist is the American cellist Alisa Weilerstein, who made her concert debut at the age of 13 and was soon recognised as an artist with exceptional powers of communication. Always a keen promoter of contemporary music, Weilerstein brings her radiant tone to the Seven Tunes Heard in China by the Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng, one of the pieces Rob's chosen to feature this week. She's joined by her parents, the violinist Donald Weilerstein and the pianist Vivian Hornik Weilerstein, for an emotionally potent performance of Schumann's G minor Piano Trio, and she can also be heard in a trio of concertos: Dvořák's evergreen Cello Concerto, the searingly dramatic 2nd Cello Concerto of Shostakovich, and the perennially affecting Elgar Concerto with Staatskapelle Berlin under Daniel Barenboim.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08t43w5)
Georges Bizet (1838-1875), Marriage and Mistresses

Despite painful critical notices, and despite a reputation for sexual impropriety, Bizet resolves to settle down and marry his teacher's daughter.

A man of multiple love affairs who became devoted to his neurotic wife; a superb pianist who studiously avoided the concert stage; a man for ever associated with Spain, even though he'd never been there - George Bizet is a mass of contradictions. As well as composing what is arguably the world's best known and most popular opera - Carmen - Bizet also composed some spectacular flops. Always seeking popular as well as critical success, that was the very thing that eluded him during his lifetime. And yet, despite the caustic discouragement of Parisian reviewers, Bizet wrote songs and operas of astonishing beauty, even if the plots and libretti didn't always match the composer's dramatic sense.

Donald Macleod recounts Bizet's struggles to make a living as a successful operatic composer, who agrees to set a novel he actively detests: Sir Walter Scott's Fair Maid of Perth - complete with improbable mad scenes, a gypsy and songs in praise of the Scottish winter! Despite his various mistresses, the composer resolves to settle down and marry the girl of his dreams, Geneviève Halévy, the daughter of his esteemed teacher. The only problem is, how settled will his life be with a young woman who's distinctly unhinged after her own mother blames her for the death of her sister?

Thursday - BBC Music Day Opera Matinee: Giordano's Andrea Chenier

As part of BBC Music Day, Afternoon on 3 celebrates The Power of Music with what some say is the most powerful musical experience of all - opera! Soaring voices and a plot with love, revolution and death keep us at the edge of our seats as Penny Gore introduces Umberto Giordano's Andrea Chénier in David McVicar's 2015 production from the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. With tenor Jonas Kaufmann in the title role and soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek as Maddalena de Coigny, conducted by Antonio Pappano. Giordano's melodramatic story is a passionate tale of the ill-fated love of a dashing poet and an aristocratic lady, set against the backdrop of the French Revolution. It is based loosely on the life of the French poet, André Chénier, who was executed during the French Revolution. Giordano wrote some of his best music for the lead tenor, which is a role that has been tackled by some of the world's greatest tenors.

BBC Music Day: BBC National Orchestra of Wales

From The Brangwyn Hall, Swansea

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas

Principal Conductor Thomas Sondergard directs the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. Plus Prokofiev's Scythian Suite and Ravel's bitter-sweet Piano Concerto in G with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet.

Prokofiev: Scythian Suite
Ravel: Piano Concerto in G

8.20 Nicola Heywood Thomas talks with tonight's soloist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and as part of BBC Music Day, she finds out about the BBC Concert Orchestra's recent Ten Pieces Assemblies project in schools.

Stravinsky: Rite of Spring

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Thomas Sondergard (conductor)

Stravinsky's ballet score for The Rite of Spring provoked a riot when it was first heard in Paris in 1913. Commissioned by Diaghilev for his Ballets Russes, the jarring harmonies and pounding rhythms whipped the audience into a frenzy. For all its modernity, much of The Rite is based on traditional folk melody, but through Stravinsky's boundless energy and inventiveness, it still has the power to shock today. Prokofiev's Scythian suite matches Stravinsky for it's sheer scale. Also commissioned by Diaghilev - in the wake of The Rite - Prokofiev's score was to be another violent and primeval ballet. When the great impresario lost interest, Prokofiev adapted his score into a dazzling concert suite, rarely heard today partly due to its size (9 percussionists and 8 trumpets). Ravel's G major concerto is a crystalline miniature, perfectly crafted with elements of jazz, romanticism and impressionism all cheek by jowl in the outer movements. The classically inspired middle movement opens with an achingly beautiful melody, simple yet heart-rending.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b069ydwl)
A Short History of Indian Art, A Leisurely Ride

The writer and historian William Dalrymple continues his history of India through five great works of art and sculpture.

A painting by the renowned Pahari miniature painter Nainsukh inspires Dalrymple's fourth essay. It's from the 18th century. The image is of one of Nainsukh's patrons, Mian Mukund Dev of Jasrota, out riding on horseback with his retinue, all clad in bright clothes, romance in the air. One is playing a drum, another is singing. This is a joyful scene, brimming with the colours of the Punjab hills of northern India.

Dalrymple tells the story of this remarkable painter, working at a time when the Punjab hill-states of the Himalayan foothills were going through a period of astonishing creativity. He describes the life of Nainsukh and the status of the artist of this period. He also chronicles his astonishing and ultimately tragic relationship with the local ruler.

'A Short History of Indian Art' is a Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 3. The producer is Anthony Denselow.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b08t4tbv)
Verity Sharp with Jennifer Walshe

Over the last fifteen years the Irish composer Jennifer Walshe has gained a reputation as a radical and innovative voice in new music. From writing an opera for Barbie dolls and creating a collective of fake Irish composers to composing for symphony orchestras and string quartets, her work crosses boundaries with a playful intellectualism. She joins Verity Sharp to discuss post-internet music and how the online space is shaping sound.

Also on the programme, Verity marks 40 years since David Lynch released his gothic classic Eraserhead with music from the soundtrack along with a piece by another musically-minded art house film director, Jim Jarmusch, and analogue psych-pop from Jane Weaver.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08t43w9)
Georges Bizet (1838-1875), The Final Act

The choice of libretto was his, as was the choice of singer. So what could possibly go wrong with the first night of Carmen? Donald Macleod concludes his account of the life and work of George Bizet.

A man of multiple love affairs who became devoted to his neurotic wife; a superb pianist who studiously avoided the concert stage; a man for ever associated with Spain, even though he'd never been there - George Bizet is a mass of contradictions. As well as composing what is arguably the world's best known and most popular opera - Carmen - Bizet also composed some spectacular flops. Always seeking popular as well as critical success, that was the very thing that eluded him during his lifetime. And yet, despite the caustic discouragement of Parisian reviewers, Bizet wrote songs and operas of astonishing beauty, even if the plots and libretti didn't always match the composer's dramatic sense.

In today's concluding episode, we find Bizet exploring an exotic eastern setting with his opera Djamileh and experiencing the joys of parenthood, as his wife gives birth to a son. Despite setbacks at the theatre, he enjoys a rare taste of success as the music to the melodrama L'Arlésienne starts to enjoy an independent existence away from the theatre. And finally, making the bold choice of the novella Carmen for a theme, Bizet strives to bring his final masterpiece to the stage.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b069yf28)
A Short History of Indian Art, The Delhi Book

The writer and historian William Dalrymple concludes his short history of India through five great works of art and sculpture.

For this last episode Dalrymple has chosen the Delhi Book, an album containing over 100 paintings of the great Indian city in the 19th century. Many of these topographical works are by the famous artist Mazhar Ali Khan. He worked in Delhi in the late Mughal era, in what became known as the 'Company Style' of painting under Western influence. Sir Thomas Metcalfe, who was working in India as the Governor-General's Agent, commissioned the Delhi Book and had it sent back to England in 1844 as a gift to his daughters.

Dalrymple tells the story of this book of paintings and the often-bizarre British characters who lived and worked in Delhi. He describes the importance of the Delhi Book in recording how this great city looked in the 19th century. He looks at the life of Mazhar Ali Khan and describes how Mughal and British artistic impulses fused during this brief period to create a remarkable final phase to the history of Indian miniature painting.

'A Short History of Indian Art' is a Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 3. The producer is Anthony Denselow.
