SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08v8lz7)
Grace Bumbry, Audra McDonald, Bill Fontana

Sara Mohr-Pietsch meets two American singers - the opera icon Grace Bumbry and the broadway star Audra McDonald. Plus a conversation with the sound artist Bill Fontana in Snape, Suffolk, where he's created an installation modifying sounds from the reedbeds, marshes and the Maltings' industrial past, for this year's Aldeburgh Festival.

Grace Bumbry's career was launched when she won a competition at the tender age of 17. She was sought after across Europe and the USA as a mezzo soprano and later a soprano. Now aged 80, still actively coaching young singers, she's one of the jurors for the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2017. She talks about her life on stage and in the concert hall, and passes on the wisdom of her career.

SAT 15:00 Sound of Dance (b08v92hf)
The contemporary ballet composer

Katie Derham explores the role of the composer in ballet today. Including an interview with Sally Beamish about her work with Birmingham Royal Ballet and her current project with Northern Ballet on the Little Mermaid.

There is a long tradition for creating new ballets from already established music, often from pieces that were not intended by the composer for dance. In recent years the Violin Concerto of Thomas Adès - Concentric Paths - provided the inspiration for a highly acclaimed new ballet for choreographer Wayne McGregor. All of which begs the question, what makes good music for the ballet?

There is also a healthy tradition of commissioning purpose made music for the ballet from contemporary composers , and in today's programme Katie features music from some of her favourite modern examples, including Joby Talbot's 'Alice's Adventures In Wonderland' for the Royal Ballet and John McCabe's 'Edward II' for Birmingham Royal Ballet; and Julian Joseph's "The Brown Bomber", which pays homage to the historic boxing match between Joe Lewis and Max Schmelling in 1938.

And Katie meets composer Sally Beamish who is in the middle of a new work for Northern Ballet inspired by Hans Andersen's story of The Little Mermaid. Sally's previous ballet, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest and written for David Bintley, has recently enjoyed a revival with Houston Ballet. Sally shares some of her thoughts about what makes effective ballet music and explains some of her working methods with reference to her two full length scores.

The Classic Score of the Week is John Lanchbery's music for The Tales of Beatrix Potter.

SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (b08v8lzh)
Verdi's Don Carlo

Verdi's dramatic opera 'Don Carlo', starring tenor Bryan Hymel as the Spanish prince. This performance, recorded at the Royal Opera House, is introduced by James Naughtie, who is joined by Verdi specialist Flora Willson.

Don Carlos ..... Bryan Hymel (tenor)
Tebaldo ..... Angela Simkin (mezzo-soprano)
Elizabeth of Valois ..... Kristin Lewis (soprano)
Count of Lerma ..... David Junghoon Kim (tenor)
Countess of Aremberg ..... Rosalind Waters (soprano)
Carlos V ..... Andrea Mastroni (bass)
Rodrigo ..... Christoph Pohl (baritone)
Philip II ..... Ildar Abdrazakov (bass)
Princess Eboli ..... Ekaterina Semenchuk (mezzo-soprano)
Voice from Heaven ..... Francesca Chiejina (soprano)
Grand Inquisitor ..... Paata Burchuladze (bass)

Royal Opera House Chorus
Royal Opera House Orchestra
Bertrand de Billy (Conductor)

This historical drama is based on Schiller's play 'Don Carlos, Prince Royal of Spain' and is performed here in Verdi's five-act Italian version. Don Carlos - sung by tenor Bryan Hymel - is the Spanish heir to the throne, but in order to secure a peace treaty he has to see his betrothed lady, Elisabeth de Valois (soprano Kristin Lewis) marry his own father, King Philip II. The opera is full of drama in addition to this love triangle, including the sacrifice of Don Carlo's deep friendship with Rodrigo, mistaken identities, and a huge struggle between church and state. The power of Verdi's music is spell-binding and is perhaps at its most intense during the famous confrontation in Act IV between the King - sung here by bass Ildar Abdrazakov - and the Grand Inquisitor (the bass Paata Burchuladze). Bertrand de Billy conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b08v8lzk)
Brighstone 428

Artist Graeme Miller captures the poetry of the landline. In this half hour, we follow the arc of a single call from dialling to hanging up, taking in the sweep across the global landscape of the 20th century. He draws out the private habits and distinctive speech as well as the collective dreams and nightmares of the landlines art and culture.

While collaging the mores and cadences of telephone behaviour and speech the piece also lands in the physical space of the landline - the actual line and the real land. The world of the telephone engineer atop a telegraph pole; the village operator, the maintenance or laying of underwater cables, the middle-of-nowhere phonebox which exists oblique to the density of traffic of information and chat.

The plot lines of death and murder stalking the crossed lines of the city, to the call of the worried voice "Are you still there?". All these spaces are opened up with the reassurances and communities of landline use.

It is a line crossed next to the atmospheric space that denotes a fragility and hints at the ways in which the technology that opened up connection also imported in its liveness an equal and opposite force of disconnection.

Running out of change, the broken phone box, the drama and plunge into existential separation, opened up by the one-sided conversation and now, the relentless possibility of being in touch.

With thanks to Max Flemmich of Darvel Telephone Museum and Dr Sarah Jackson, Senior Lecturer English and Creative Writing, Nottingham Trent University.

Among the many companies she's worked with all over the world are the Royal National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, and she continues to teach drama students, as she has done for more than 20 years, at the Guildhall School of Music and the Michael Howard Studios in New York.

Patsy tells Michael about her passion for helping everyone - actors, singers, children, business leaders and even prisoners - find their own natural, strong voice, a frequently moving and liberating experience.

Among her choices is music by Sibelius, Strauss, Bach and Philip Glass.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07f6mh4)
How do you describe a teaspoon in music?

Can you describe a teaspoon in music? Why would you even want to? Tom Service explores how music is able to tell stories in sound

Tom is joined by musicologist Ken Hamilton for a journey through musical history to reveal music's ability to describe the most everyday actions and the most heartfelt emotions.

From Vivaldi and Beethoven, to the epic tone poems of Richard Strauss (which may or may not contain teaspoons), to Hollywood blockbusters - how does music paint those pictures in our mind, and do those pictures always look the same?

Rethink Music, with The Listening Service.

Each week, Tom aims to open our ears to different ways of imagining a musical idea, a work, or a musical conundrum, on the premise that "to listen" is a decidedly active verb.

How does music connect with us, make us feel that gamut of sensations from the fiercely passionate to the rationally intellectual, from the expressively poetic to the overwhelmingly visceral? What's happening in the pieces we love that takes us on that emotional rollercoaster? And what's going on in our brains when we hear them?

When we listen - really listen - we're not just attending to the way that songs, symphonies, and string quartets work as collections of notes and melodies. We're also creating meanings and connections that reverberate powerfully with other worlds of ideas, of history and culture, as well as the widest range of musical genres. We're engaging the world with our ears.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08v8qn4)
Grid

In essence nothing more than the repeated intersection of horizontal and vertical lines, this feature explores the grid as the great hidden device behind art, architecture and urban design, of the musical score - an emblem of modernism and a perceptual model for the digital age.

Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, this feature explores the grid on multiple levels - as concept, as lived reality and art, from navigating the Manhattan street plan to its unfolding across the surface of a painting; its use in the visual representation of music, between stave and note (explicitly in so-called 'graphic' scores) to its presence in political thought and the geometry of the modern metropolis. The grid has been described as a checkpoint of modernism in the 20th century, a contemporary perceptual tool for understanding the flow of information in the present.

This programme flows between these hidden forms and explicit uses of the grid in a way that reflects the subject, allowing the whole to develop a bit like the drawing of a map: the grid as an idea that lies behind the everyday, that informs the way we move, read, see, interpret information and navigate the world, at once physical and virtual. But sometimes it's celebrated outright - once a year crowds gather in New York along the city's principle avenues to cheer 'Manhattan-henge', the moment when the trajectory of the setting sun aligns perfectly, and spectacularly, with the city grid.

There are political dimensions to this story too. The grid is a hidden form of order behind spontaneity, a key organisational device - simple, repetitive and austere but also perhaps consoling in times of political chaos. Mapped grids and city grid plans flourished in the West following the foundation of republics; in painting, during the period leading up to and immediately after the First World War. In city planning in particular the grid represented a set of Utopian choices. In the United States it was tied to mapping on a mass scale, the Jeffersonian gridding of North America, and a positive rejection of the European city model of tangled streets and random circles. The abstract grid would underpin a new civic order, rational and democratic - it has no centre, it belongs to Everyman.

The programme explores the idea that the grid can be invisible or visible, not only a hidden idea or tool but for artists like Piet Mondrian spiritually satisfying in its own right, its simple geometry in theory infinite, extending beyond the limits of the canvas. Talking about the psychological power of grids in modern painting, art historian Rosalind Krauss pointed out that their appeal is based on a rejection of the chaos and the unpredictability we find in nature: 'The grid turns its back on nature. Flattened, geometric, ordered, it is anti-natural... It is an aesthetic decree.' The grid also joins architecture and music, not only in the geometric scores of modern composers like Iannis Xenakis or Morton Feldman but throughout the history of music notation, from the Medieval period onward. It's now the basis for music composition in the digital domain. Today the proliferating networks of the web and production of virtual knowledge have prompted some to argue we're in the middle of a new emergent grid, shaping the world in its image, synonymous with public space.

Moving across fields and practices, this feature shows the power of a very simple idea - so simple and powerful, in fact, it is often (almost) invisible. Contributors are drawn from art history and art practice, music composition, architecture and urban design, typography and modern political thought.

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the award-winning director Greg Doran. Greg is Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and has directed the company in more than half of Shakespeare's works, as well as many new plays.

In 2016, Greg led the company's celebration of Shakespeare's 400th birthday by directing Shakespeare Live!, an event which honoured Shakespeare's legacy across the performing arts. Throughout the week Greg will be sharing some of his favourite classical music (much of it Shakespeare-inspired!) by composers including Prokofiev, Handel and Britten.

10.30am
Music on Location: The Spanish Court, Madrid
Sarah explores music connected with the 18th-century Spanish Court in Madrid composed by Francesco Corselli. Although Italian, Corselli spent much of his life writing music for the Spanish Court, where he introduced the highly formalised style of stage production known as 'opera seria', which was enjoying so much success elsewhere in Europe at the time.

11am
Artists of the Week: Tenebrae
Sarah's Artists of the Week are the choir Tenebrae. Celebrated for their technical precision and dramatic interpretations, Tenebrae has established itself as one of the world's leading choirs under the direction of Nigel Short, who founded the choir in 2001. Since then, they've produced a large discography collaborating with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and the Aurora Orchestra, and with contemporary composers such as Joby Talbot, Bob Chilcott and Alexander L'Estrange. The choir has made celebrated recordings of many major choral works including Poulenc's Mass in G major, Parry's Songs of Farewell and Fauré's Requiem, all of which Sarah will be featuring this week. Sarah's also chosen their recording of Victoria's Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday and Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b074zc6k)
Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), The Making of the Man

Telemann was a many-splendoured thing: gardener, translator, theorist, publisher, poet, entrepreneur, and an early tech-geek. He also earned himself a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as music's most prolific composer. But is that necessarily an accolade to be proud of?

And so Donald Macleod sets out to uncover the real Georg Philipp Telemann - a prolific, industrious polymath or, as one historian put it, a purveyor of 'factory products' achieved 'by dint of sedulous scribbling'. We also have to wrestle with a primary source on the composer which is at once both a treasure trove, and a route map of garden alleys. Johann Mattheson's 'autobiography' of the composer is a product of its time, with its tantalising combination of hard facts and fantasy.

In the opening programme we meet the young Telemann, and try to hang some hard facts on Mattheson's tantalising portrait. We quickly discover that industry and tenacity ran in the composer's blood from an early age, as his mother puts all her effort into diverting her precocious son as far from a career in music as possible.

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra - Stephens, Gabrieli, MacMillan, Messiaen, Poulenc

Stuart Flinders presents a concert of orchestral and choral glories given by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir James MacMillan in Liverpool's iconic Metropolitan Cathedral. Opening with "a great choral shout", James MacMillan's hymn of praise 'Gloria' was written to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the consecration of Coventry's new cathedral. It was first performed by Ian Bostridge, and Ian returns for this 50th anniversary of Liverpool's second cathedral. Messiaen's 'Forgotten Offerings' is a powerful depiction of Christ's sacrifice, written when he was barely in his 20s, and it remains a remarkable statement of belief. And proving that faith expresses itself in many forms - Poulenc's Gloria, with its distinctive mixture of seriousness and zesty exuberance. "While writing it I had in mind those Crozzoli frescoes with angels sticking out their tongues, and also some solemn-looking Benedictine monks that I saw playing football one day."

MON 22:45 The Essay (b08wqmtk)
Minds at War - Series 4, Marcel Duchamp

Five writers explore the year 1917 through the works of five diverse creative minds of the Great War, and the experiences that shaped them. In tonight's Essay, the writer and academic Heather Jones looks at French artist Marcel Duchamp's controversial 'readymade' that he entitled 'Fountain', but which was, in effect, simply a piece of common-or-garden, off-the-shelf sanitary-ware, a men's urinal. In what way, contemporary voices asked, was this art? Yet in 2004, critics named 'Fountain' as the most important art work of the twentieth century. But why? And what was the connection to the torment and terror of the First World War which still raged as Duchamp was creating it in 1917? Heather Jones explores the meaning and the wartime associations of Duchamp's now celebrated statement of artistic intent.

Producer: Simon Elmes.

Sarah's guest this week is the award-winning director Greg Doran. Greg is Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and has directed the company in more than half of Shakespeare's works, as well as many new plays. Greg began his career with the RSC as an actor in the late 1980s, becoming an Assistant Director soon afterwards before climbing through the ranks to the top job. In 2016, Greg led the company's celebration of Shakespeare's 400th birthday by directing Shakespeare Live!, an event which honoured Shakespeare's legacy across the performing arts. Throughout the week Greg will be sharing some of his favourite classical music (much of it Shakespeare-inspired!) by composers including Prokofiev, Handel and Britten.

10.30am
Music on Location: Cuba
Sarah heads to Cuba, courtesy of Gershwin's fun-filled Cuban Overture. The piece came about after a two-week holiday Gershwin took in Havana in 1932, and it's dominated by Caribbean rhythms and native Cuban percussion.

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), The Collaborator

It was his summer sojourns with perhaps his most enlightened employer which saw Telemann's musical outlook transformed. In Poland he heard enough folk songs in eight days to last him a lifetime.

Today we hear some of the fruits of those trips, brought vividly to life by the group Holland Baroque whose recordings are something of a mash-up of Telemann's music and the folk tunes of the day. Plus we discover how Telemann worked with the best performers around him to create a series of concerts so popular that a parking crisis ensued.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b08v8y1l)
Minds at War - Series 4, Gertrude Bell

Tarek Osman explores the words of Gertrude Bell, in this series looking at the impact of the First World War on great artists and thinkers.

Gertrude Bell, explorer, archeologist, diplomat, linguist, writer and spy was no ordinary woman. The first woman ever to be awarded a first-class degree in modern history from Oxford, she went on to become a groundbreaking mountaineer and have a Swiss peak named after her. But these were mere asides.

By 1914 she had immersed herself in the history and culture of the Levant, mastering Arabic, and forging real relationships across large swathes of the region.

As the First World War raged across Europe and the Middle East, the British Empire realised it needed her knowledge and experience. And in 1917, as Oriental Secretary in the British Commission in Baghdad, she was crucial to them, visiting dignities, poring over intelligence and military plans. The only woman in that world of men, she devised British strategy, selecting its Arab partners and drawing lines in the sand which would become the borders of new states.

As a young academic, Tarek tussled with the idea of Bell. She was symbolic of the way colonial powers had shaped his world and a voice that seemed so condescending. In this essay he explores his own conflicted relationship with her and how, as his understanding of the region grew, he developed a respect for a driven and courageous woman whose ideas and reflections remain so relevant today.

Producer Sarah Bowen.

Plus, pastor, filmmaker and poet Rev. Sekou's musical debut which explores a deep-southern mixture of delta blues and Memphis soul.

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: can you name the television show or film that featured this piece of classical music? 

10am
Sarah's guest this week is the award-winning director Greg Doran. Greg is Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and has directed the company in more than half of Shakespeare's works, as well as many new plays. Greg began his career with the RSC as an actor in the late 1980s, becoming an Assistant Director soon afterwards before climbing through the ranks to the top job. In 2016, Greg led the company's celebration of Shakespeare's 400th birthday by directing Shakespeare Live!, an event which honoured Shakespeare's legacy across the performing arts. Throughout the week Greg will be sharing some of his favourite classical music (much of it Shakespeare-inspired!) by composers including Prokofiev, Handel and Britten.

10.30am
Music on Location: Alassio
Sarah explores Elgar's musical response to Alassio, a town on the Italian Riviera where the composer and his family stayed. His inspiration for 'In the South (Alassio)' came as he stumbled across a shepherd by an old Roman ruin: "Then in a flash, it all came to me - the conflict of the armies on that very spot long ago, where I now stood - the contrast of the ruin and the shepherd - and then, all of a sudden, I came back to reality. In that time I had composed the overture - the rest was merely writing it down."

11am
Artists of the Week: Tenebrae
Sarah's Artists of the Week are the choir Tenebrae. Celebrated for their technical precision and dramatic interpretations, Tenebrae has established itself as one of the world's leading choirs under the direction of Nigel Short, who founded the choir in 2001. Since then, they've produced a large discography collaborating with orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and the Aurora Orchestra, and with contemporary composers such as Joby Talbot, Bob Chilcott and Alexander L'Estrange. The choir has made celebrated recordings of many major choral works including Poulenc's Mass in G major, Parry's Songs of Farewell and Fauré's Requiem, all of which Sarah will be featuring this week. Sarah's also chosen their recording of Victoria's Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday and Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b074zl43)
Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), A Versatile Hand

Was there a single instrument of the time which Telemann didn't play? It certainly seems unlikely when browsing his claimed talents not just at the staple violin, flute and keyboard but also the likes of viola pomposa and the chalumeau.

Today, a survey of Telemann's many musical talents, and also some wider skills at which he excelled including engraving and theoretical pursuits. We also encounter the ultimate in musical technology of the time, a keyboard instrument fitted with 500 candles, mirrors and coloured window, all in the quest to link sound and colour.

With Donald Macleod.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b08v8y1n)
Minds at War - Series 4, Siegfried Sassoon's Letter to The Times

Five writers explore the year 1917 through the work of five Great War artists. Tonight, Joanna Bourke on Siegfried Sassoon and his celebrated protest against the conflict.

"I am making this statement as an act of wilful defiance of military authority, because I believe that the War is being deliberately prolonged by those who have the power to end it." So wrote the soldier-poet Siegfried Sassoon in July 1917, in a letter to the Times newspaper. "I am a soldier," he went on, "convinced that I am acting on behalf of soldiers. I believe this War, upon which I entered as a war of defence and liberation, has now become a war of aggression and conquest." The result was uproar - and Sassoon's subsequent confinement to Craiglockhart Hospital in Edinburgh, suffering (the authorities concluded) from shell-shock.

In tonight's Essay, Joanna Bourke re-reads Sassoon's letter of protest and examines what led up to his outspoken anti-war declaration, and what happened next.

Producer: Simon Elmes.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b08v8y66)
Late Junction Sessions, King Ayisoba, Adrian Sherwood, Tom Challenger

Recorded at the BBC's Maida Vale studios, it also features multi-instrumentalist Skip McDonald, aka 'Little Axe'.

Also tonight, sit tight for 'a very long song' as Max Reinhardt selects a new work by US composer Michael Pisaro, collaborating with electronics trio Colectivo MaDam to create an epic built solely from held notes and silences. Plus, psychedelic spoken-word wanderings and synthy vamps from cult American band Sun City Girls, and an intimate recitation by pianist and vocalist Shirley Horn.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.

10.30am
Music on Location: Paris
In 1737 Telemann travelled from Hamburg to Paris to oversee the publication of some of his works and to make the acquaintance of the musical personalities of this culturally exuberant city. He was already well known to Parisian audiences and he was especially well received by the Parisian virtuosi who had been urging him to visit for some time. It is believed that, during his stay, Telemann composed and premiered his second set of Paris Quartets with these Parisian virtuosi, possibly playing alongside them.

Double Take
Sarah explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences between two interpretations of Schubert's Moment musical D.780 No.3 in F minor, in performances by András Schiff (on a fortepiano) and Maria João Pires.

11am

Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), Doing Business

It looks like the worst decision of his life - turning down the job of Leipzig kantor which then cemented JS Bach's immortality. But was it actually a masterstroke?

Donald Macleod uncovers Telemann's business acumen, beginning with that shrewd job negotiation which saw the composer leverage a hefty salary increase from his employers in Hamburg. We also explore Telemann's entrepreneurial activities as he cashes in from the wealth of the local nobility and filing expenses claims which would make any accountant proud.

But then the tables are turned and he's doomed to bring about the death of the one person he holds most dear - his daughter Gilda. Dimitri Platanias is the hunchback jester, Ekaterina Siurina his daughter Gilda, and Vittorio Grigolo the handsome, amoral duke who poses as a penniless student to gain Gilda's love. John Eliot Gardiner conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera, in a recording from 2012.

Vox Luminis at Aldeburgh

Ian Skelly presents a concert marking the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Reformation, given by Vox Luminis and director Lionel Meunier at this year's Aldeburgh Festival. Schütz: trailblazer and master of the German baroque, whose works brilliantly marry invention with an acute sense of colour. The Musikalische Exequien is a notable example of this compelling vision: written for the funeral of Count Henirich Reuss, the motet is based on two different texts for four choirs with three to be placed in the distance. No wonder his music profoundly influenced JS Bach and even Brahms, who owned a copy of the score, possibly influencing his own German Requiem. And Bach opens the programme with two cantatas based on Lutheran chorales: the early 'Christ lag in Todesbanden' (Christ lay in the bonds of death), and 'Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit' (God's time is the very best time), also written for a funeral and with one of the loveliest, most comforting openings in any of his works, with its glowing viola da gamba and gently rocking recorders.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b08v8y1q)
Minds at War - Series 4, Mata Hari's Final Performance

Before the First World War, Mata Hari's elaborate and provocative performances made her body a sensation. The artist, dancer and style icon graced La Scala, the Folies Bergère and the exclusive private salons of Europe. She was "the toast of Paris," in a skin coloured body stocking with bejewelled breast cups, enchanting, enthralling and scandalous.

In this series looking at the impact of the First World War on artists, the writer Elif Şafak examines this notorious femme fatale's act.

She explores the allure of the Oriental and attitudes to unfettered and independent women. Drawing parallels with Zulaikha, she unveils the legend of Mata Hari who, convicted for passing secrets to the enemy, faced her final performance before a firing squad on 15th October 1917.

The choir has made celebrated recordings of many major choral works including Poulenc's Mass in G major, Parry's Songs of Farewell and Fauré's Requiem, all of which Sarah will be featuring this week. Sarah's also chosen their recording of Victoria's Tenebrae Responsories for Maundy Thursday and Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b074zl4z)
Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767), Ever the Politician

One prominent contemporary called him 'the operator'. Telemann was nothing short of brilliant when it came to negotiating the tricky path between the diverse expectations of his influential patrons. But, as Donald Macleod discovers, all was not quite as rosy in his personal life as the composer's wife scandalises the whole of Hamburg with her gambling debts and an affair with a prominent military man.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b08v8xt9)
Pierre-Laurent Aimard at Aldeburgh

Tom Redmond presents a concert of music for piano given by Pierre-Laurent Aimard in Snape Maltings at this year's Aldeburgh Festival.

The best mixtapes are never just a succession of repetitive beats but an inspired sequence of moods and sounds. Pierre-Laurent Aimard has similarly finessed his selection of dance music for tonight: from the elegance of Bach to the earthy folk of Bartok, and Chopin's sparkling waltzes to Schubert's sentimental Ländler. The urge to express ourselves in space, motion and sound has proved a continuous lure for composers, and Pierre-Laurent Aimard leaps nimbly between centuries, welcoming us all to the dance.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b08slxb0)
Jackie Kay, Nicola Barker, Scottee

Poet and Scottish Makar Jackie Kay reads from her new poetry commissioned for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park's new exhibition 'Tread Softly'.

In Nicola Barker's experimental new novel H(A)PPY (Faber) she is attempting to obliterate the narrative.

'Ode to Leeds' is the second play by young writer Zodwa Nyoni. Based on her experiences as part of Leeds Young Authors, 'Ode to Leeds' is at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from the 10th June.

Performance artist Scottee's work often examines gender, body image and masculinity. In a new commission for The Verb 'Felt Tips', he writes about the relationship he had with his mother as a small boy.

Producer: Jessica Treen.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b08v8y1s)
Minds at War - Series 4, Isaac Rosenberg's Dead Man's Dump

Five writers explore the year 1917 through the works of five Great War artists. Tonight, Santanu Das explores the poetic world of Bristol-born Isaac Rosenberg.

Less familiar today than his contemporaries Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon, Rosenberg described - as they did - the horror of war close-up: "The wheels lurched over sprawled dead / But pained them not, though their bones crunched, / Their shut mouths made no moan..." wrote Rosenberg in his great poem of 100 years ago, Dead Man's Dump. "Earth has waited for them, / All the time of their growth / Fretting for their decay: / Now she has them at last!"

In tonight's Essay, Santanu Das re-reads Rosenberg's 1917 poem, written a few months before his own death having just completed a night patrol - on April 1st 1918.

Producer: Simon Elmes.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b08v8y6d)
Glastonbury Festival

Lopa Kothari presents a special edition live from the Glastonbury Festival featuring Ghana's Pat Thomas and his Kwashibu Area Band and New Orleans' Hot 8 Brass Band, both performing today on the West Holts Stage. British folk group The Young'uns drop in for session backstage in the BBC Music Tepee and new releases come from some of the world music artists to be appearing at the festival over the weekend including Songhoy Blues and Orchestra Baobab. Lopa is joined in the mobile studio by Canadian singer Martha Wainwright and Quinton Scott, record collector and founder of Afrobeat specialists Strut Records.
