SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08vy6hw)
Sir Willard White, Mozart's Pet Starling, Huang Bo

Presented by Tom Service

Tom talks to one of the world's best-loved singers, the bass Sir Willard White. Equally at home singing Wagner or the great American songbook - Willard White has one of the most distinctive and powerful voices on stage today. He tells Tom how as a teenager he had a life changing experience realising he could sing, his experiences on the opera stage and how the sheer power of his voice has made women scream.

A new book by the American naturalist Lyanda Lynn Haupt tells the story of a little starling that Mozart kept as a pet in Vienna - she speaks to Tom about retracing the story of an unlikely friendship between composer and bird.

For Radio 3's Canada 150 season, Music Matters investigates how classical composers last century would often use the songs and music of the indigenous people of Canada without realising the significance they had. Tom talks to Dylan Robinson, a professor in indigenous arts, Marion Newman, a classical mezzo of indigenous descent and Robert Cramm, an expert on the Canadian composer Harry Somers.

Plus, Tom talks to Chinese-American composer Huang Ruo about a new project for Manchester International Festival which features six new works by six different composers, each created in response to a specific space in Manchester. Huang chose to make his piece in and for the Manchester Town Hall - his oasis of musical contemplation in a busy city.


SAT 13:00 Saturday Classics (b08vy6hy)
Canada 150: James Rhodes on Glenn Gould

James Rhodes has been obsessed with the iconic Canadian pianist Glenn Gould for as long as he can remember. Ahead of his Sunday Feature tomorrow, this afternoon he selects his pick of Gould's idiosyncratic and often controversial recordings - from his distinctive Bach, to Beethoven with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra, his own transcription of the Meistersingers Overture, and Prokofiev's 7th Piano Sonata, which the New York Times described as 'an explosive burst of rock and roll with a chromatic edge'.

James presents his documentary Geeking Glenn Gould on Sunday 25th June at 1845.

CANADA 150: a week of programmes from across Canada, marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of the nation and exploring the range and diversity of Canadian music and arts.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Dance (b08vy6j0)
Baroque Dance at Versailles and beyond

Katie Derham explores dance at the court of Versailles - the dance music of Louis XIV and the French baroque, and the origins of classical ballet.

Picture the scene at Versailles - the Sun King Louis wielding his political power in court - and dancing. It seems strange to us today, but the two were indelibly intertwined in the 17th century. Ballets and operas were extravagant spectacles used to celebrate marriages or show off wealth and power. Louis was known as a great dancer, and in fact, he is seen as the father of classical ballet, establishing the first ballet school in a room at the Louvre palace. His key composer was Jean-Baptiste Lully, who created the first dances which told a story.

In this episode Katie uncovers a hidden dimension of the music in the context of the dance steps, including an interview with the baroque dancer Mary Collins, and musicians Rachel Brown and Adrian Butterfield, who are all working on a joint project, and an insight into dance and power from George Blagden who plays Louis XIV in the BBC TV series 'Versailles'.

SAT 21:45 Between the Ears (b08vy6j8)
On Imaginary Media

New radiophonic drama by Peter Blegvad and Iain Chambers.

Described by its makers as 'an illustrated lecture, with songs', On Imaginary Media explores 'techno-mysticism', the irrational beliefs we project onto new technologies. It looks back to 19th century inventors like Edison and Tesla, to the hopes and fears their inventions raised of such things as a soul-catcher, a thought-projector, or of communication with the dead. And it looks forward into the future, imagining 'moodia' (mood altering media), and technologies designed to 'remove all obstacles to the immediate gratification of every whim.' The characters debate these innovations, imagining what the consequences might be of such god-like capabilities.

Absurdist humour permeates the piece, which is presented as a performance in rehearsal, with a small company of actors (played by John Ramm and Emma Powell) and an increasingly exasperated director (Peter Blegvad) working against a deadline and beset by other problems. Featuring sound design by Iain Chambers and songs by Peter Blegvad, On Imaginary Media demonstrates the evocative power of radio, once seen as the most mysterious medium of all, a technology which gave rise to no end of hopes and fears and is still capable of exercising our capacity for wonder.

Starring Peter Blegvad, Emma Powell and John Ramm.
Produced and directed by Iain Chambers, with music by Peter Blegvad and Langham Research Centre.
An Open Audio production for BBC Radio 3.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b08vy8cn)
James Jolly

James Jolly presents the complete version of Telemann's 'Hamburger Ebb' und Fluth', chosen in yesterday's Building a Library. Written in 1723 to celebrate the centenary of the Hamburg Admiralty, its variety of aquatic themes, from nymphs and water gods to tides and winds, prompts James to explore how other composers, including Handel, Smetana, Chausson and Grainger, have drawn similar concerns into their music. The week's young artists are the singers of Clare College Cambridge, and the neglected classic is 'The Sea' by Frank Bridge. And as Part of Radio 3's Canada 150 week, James focuses on Canadian contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux in her recording of Enescu's 'Sept Chansons de Clément Marot'.

Canada 150: Madeleine Thien

As part of Canada 150, a week of programmes marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of the nation, Michael Berkeley talks to Canadian novelist Madeleine Thien.

Born in Vancouver, she is the daughter of Malaysian-Chinese immigrants to Canada and her writing explores the history of the Asian diaspora. She is the author a short story collection 'Simple Recipes' and the novels 'Certainty', 'Dogs at the Perimeter' and 'Do Not Say We Have Nothing' -about musicians studying Western classical music at the Shanghai Conservatory in the 1960s and about the legacy of the 1989 Tiananmen demonstrations. It was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the Scotiabank Giller Prize 2016 and the Governor General's Award 2016. Her books and stories have been translated into 23 languages.

Madeleine talks to Michael about the history of Western of classical music in China and its suppression during the Cultural Revolution. Countless instruments were destroyed, including more than 500 pianos at the Shanghai Conservatory. The bravery of its director, He Luting, a Debussy scholar, in resisting the Red Guards was an inspiration to her as she wrote the book and she chooses a piece of his music.

She tells Michael how her love of music was reborn as she listened to Bach whilst writing Do Not Say We Have Nothing, and we hear Bach's music played by the Chinese pianist Zhu Xiao Mei. She also chooses music from fellow Canadians Glenn Gould and Leonard Cohen.

I Got Rhythm

Ever gone out dancing? Or found your fingers and toes tapping along to your favourite tune? We find rhythm irresistible as humans.

But what is rhythm? How do we feel that beat - and do we need it to enjoy music? Tom Service explores rhythm in music from Bach's courtly dances to Steve Reich's clapping hands, finds out what puts the rhythm in RnB and discovers music that has no rhythm at all.

Meanwhile musical neuroscientist Dr Jessica Grahn is on hand to show us how rhythm affects our brains and together they find out the beat really does go on throughout our human lives.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08vy8d6)
Canada 150: Geeking Glenn Gould

James Rhodes is a massive Glenn Gould Geek: throughout his childhood he listened to Gould's recordings, had posters of him on his bedroom walls, and in the years since, those recordings have helped James through some of his darkest times.

Gould is globally famous today not just for his astounding recordings as a pianist but also his many idiosyncrasies - humming throughout his performances, abandoning the concert stage in his early thirties, bundling himself up in winter coats and hats in the middle of summer, and soaking his arms and hands in warm water are just a few. He was an obsessive hypochondriac who monitored his physical health relentlessly and took an alarming amount of prescription medication. In recent years theories have abounded about his mental health, and whether or not he was on the autism spectrum.

But beyond all this Gould was at heart a futuristic visionary - as early as the 1950s he saw the potential for technology to both serve and liberate the artist and audience. A prolific writer and broadcaster he expounded on ideas around listeners curating their own audio experience and editing their own versions of performances. He foresaw a time when artistic careers could be pursued entirely through electronic media, which in turn would have significant effects on human psychology and behaviour: so much so that product designers at Apple have recently been exploring Gould's ethos as a source of inspiration for future technology.

For BBC Radio 3, James travels to Toronto, the city Gould called home, seeking out the real Glenn, the visionary who left us not just a rich legacy of recordings, but one of colourful ideas too. He tracks down his very closest acquaintances and finds them not just open and honest but fiercely loyal to Glenn and still deeply moved by their memories 35 years after his untimely death.

And as Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary year, James also meets up with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discuss the country's colonial past, diverse present and promising future: a future which may well produce the next Glenn Gould...

Long Day's Journey into Night, by Eugene O'Neill

Long Day's Journey Into Night is the story of one devastating day in the Tyrone family, the Great American Family at its worst. The play depicts the family members' downward spiral into addiction, disease, and their own haunted pasts. Awarded a Pulitzer Prize posthumously for this play, it is generally regarded as Eugene O'Neill's masterpiece. With a cast including Robert Glenister, Anastasia Hille and Rupert Evans.

Set in August 1912 in the Summer House of The Tyrones by the sea in Connecticut, the four main characters are considered to be the semi-autobiographical representations of O'Neill himself, his older brother, and their parents.

James Tyrone is a tight fisted ageing actor whose miserliness has been the ruin of his family. His wife, Mary, has been a morphine addict since the birth of their youngest son, Edmund. Their eldest son, Jamie, is an alcoholic, unable and unwilling to find work on his own, he has been 'forced' to take up his father's profession. Edmund, who has been away as a sailor has returned home sick and awaits the doctor's diagnosis of consumption. They are all so wrapped up in their own despair that they struggle to confront the truth.

Monday - Rob Cowan with Suzannah Lipscomb

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is the historian and broadcaster, Suzannah Lipscomb. Suzannah's interest in history started at home growing up near the site of one of Henry VIII's former palaces, Nonsuch, and since then she's become a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities, London. She's written a number of books about Henry VIII and Tudor England, and has specialised in the study of women in this period. She's also a frequent broadcaster: most recently appearing on our screens in The Great Fire: In Real Time, she also co-wrote and co-presented Henry VIII and his Six Wives for Channel 5, and wrote and presented Hidden Killers for BBC Four. As well as discussing her work as an historian, Suzannah shares her passion for classical music, choosing a selection of her favourite works, by composers including Schubert, Beethoven, Berlioz.

10.30am
Music on Location: Paris
Rob explores the Concert Spirituel, the first public concert society in France, which was inaugurated in Paris in 1725. Rameau's grand motet In convertendo was performed in a concert in 1751.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the German conductor and violinist, Reinhard Goebel. In 1973 Goebel founded Musica Antiqua Köln, an instrumental ensemble initially made up of his fellow students at the Cologne Conservatory. Together they became one of the leading exponents of Baroque performance practice and have played a significant role in increasing the profile of Baroque composers such as Telemann, Heinichen, Biber and the wider Bach dynasty. Goebel usually led the group from the violin, but an unexpected focal dystonia in his left hand brought his solo career to an end and forced him to bow with the other arm. In 2000 he gave up the violin entirely and focused on conducting, but he is still Professor of Baroque Violin at the Mozarteum, Salzburg. This week Rob's chosen a selection of Goebel's recordings with Musica Antiqua Köln: their highly-acclaimed account of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.3, a motet by Heinrich Bach (J.S. Bach's great-uncle), part of Telemann's Tafelmusik, Biber's programmatic Battalia and one of Heinichen's Dresden Concerti.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08vycr2)
Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), A New Love

Donald Macleod considers Mahler's music and its sometimes troubled relationship to the beautiful Alma, whom he married after a whirlwind courtship.

Their relationship wasn't always the happiest, the terms he laid down for their marriage were far from fair, and she wasn't always faithful to her husband. But Alma Mahler exerted a powerful fascination on Gustav Mahler, and proved not only an inspiration but a also a very practical help for his egotistical genius.

Alma Schindler, the daughter of a renowned landscape painter, had certainly known other men before she met Gustav Mahler at the house of a mutual friend. Likewise, he had known and loved other women, albeit in the face of his implacably jealous sister Josephine. Alma, called by some the 'most beautiful woman in Vienna', was certainly a catch for the composer. But how big a catch was he for her, who already enjoyed the attentions of her composition teacher Zemlinsky? Gradually, Alma will fall in love with Mahler's music, and agrees to put aside her own efforts at composition.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b06fljkj)
Bliss Was It in That Dawn, Episode 1

As people get deep into middle age it's normal to look back at your childhood through a golden haze of nostalgia. But what if things really were better in the past? What if, by chance, you were born and grew up in a time and place of unprecedented economic growth and stability?

In this series of five talks for The Essay, Michael Goldfarb, born in the middle of the American Century, looks back at growing up in a US where things really were better: economically and socially;

As the US struggles with growing inequality and political gridlock, Goldfarb remembers being born in the afterglow of World War 2, and how the "children of victory" were certain that the future would always be bright.

In this programme, he remembers being a child in 1950s New York, when the city truly was the centre of the world: artistically, financially and diplomatically.


MON 23:00 Canada 150 (b08vyf5k)

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Suzannah Lipscomb

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 music and name the two composers associated with it.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the historian and broadcaster, Suzannah Lipscomb. Suzannah's interest in history started at home growing up near the site of one of Henry VIII's former palaces, Nonsuch, and since then she's become a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities, London. She's written a number of books about Henry VIII and Tudor England, and has specialised in the study of women in this period. She's also a frequent broadcaster: most recently appearing on our screens in The Great Fire: In Real Time, she also co-wrote and co-presented Henry VIII and his Six Wives for Channel 5, and wrote and presented Hidden Killers for BBC Four. As well as discussing her work as an historian, Suzannah shares her passion for classical music, choosing a selection of her favourite works.

10.30am
Music on Location: Paris
Rob features music from Berlioz's Romeo and Juliet, which was premiered at the Paris Conservatoire by a 200-strong orchestra ensemble and choir in November 1839.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences between two interpretations of "Largo al factotum", the famous 'Figaro, Figaro' aria from Rossini's comic opera The Barber of Seville. We'll hear renditions by baritones Hermann Prey and Robert Merrill.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the German conductor and violinist, Reinhard Goebel. In 1973 Goebel founded Musica Antiqua Köln, an instrumental ensemble initially made up of his fellow students at the Cologne Conservatory. Together they became one of the leading exponents of Baroque performance practice and have played a significant role in increasing the profile of Baroque composers such as Telemann, Heinichen, Biber and the wider Bach dynasty. Goebel usually led the group from the violin, but an unexpected focal dystonia in his left hand brought his solo career to an end and forced him to bow with the other arm. In 2000 he gave up the violin entirely and focused on conducting, but he is still Professor of Baroque Violin at the Mozarteum, Salzburg. This week Rob's chosen a selection of Goebel's recordings with Musica Antiqua Köln: their highly-acclaimed account of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.3, a motet by Heinrich Bach (J.S. Bach's great-uncle), part of Telemann's Tafelmusik, Biber's programmatic Battalia and one of Heinichen's Dresden Concerti.

Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), Terms of Engagement

After a brief romance, Mahler wins the hand of Alma Schindler, and they become man and wife. But on what terms? Donald Macleod continues the story of Mahler's marriage to Alma and its relationship to his music.

Their relationship wasn't always the happiest, the terms he laid down for their marriage were far from fair, and she wasn't always faithful to her husband. But Alma Mahler exerted a powerful fascination on Gustav, and proved not only an inspiration but a also a very practical support for his working and creative life.

In today's episode, the happy couple enjoy a working honeymoon in Moscow, and Alma is privileged to attend the premiere of Mahler's 3rd Symphony, when she truly acknowledges her husband's genius.

As people get deep into middle age it's normal to look back at your childhood through a golden haze of nostalgia. But what if things really were better in the past? What if, by chance, you were born and grew up in a time and place of unprecedented economic growth and stability?

In this series of five talks for The Essay, Michael Goldfarb, born in the middle of the American Century, looks back at growing up in a US where things really were better: economically and socially.

In this programme he explains how, in the 1950s, America's great migration to the suburbs led to mixed blessings: open space and isolation.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08vyj6v)
Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), Summer with the Mahlers

Gustav Mahler is the blessed with bright children and a beautiful wife. And yet he feels the need to compose music imbued with a profound sense of tragedy. Donald Macleod continues the story of Mahler's marriage to Alma.

Their relationship wasn't always the happiest, the terms he laid down for their marriage were far from fair, and she wasn't always faithful to her husband. But Alma Mahler exerted a powerful fascination on Gustav Mahler, and proved not only an inspiration but a also a very practical support for his working and creative life.

In today's programme we find Mahler composing extraordinary songs on the deaths of children just hours after kissing and hugging his own daughters. Tempting fate, maybe? Certainly that's what Alma Mahler thought. It's tempting also to see something premonitory about his 6th symphony - The 'Tragic' - which he sketched out at his idyllic summer retreat at Maiernigg on the Wörthersee during the summer of 1904. And yet it was written at one of the calmest, most serene periods of Mahler's life - and possibly wouldn't have been written at all had Alma not managed to find the manuscript which Gustav had forgotten to bring with him!

Tom Redmond continues a week of Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the 2017 Aldeburgh Festival in Suffolk. Tenor Mark Padmore opens today's programme with two Britten arrangements of Purcell hymns before we hear the UK premiere of German composer Jorg Widmann's Three Shadow Dances - a work which made him 'view the clarinet from a completely different perspective'. Jorg then joins the Belcea Quartet, who're in residence at the festival this year, for Mozart's perspective on the instrument in his exhilarating late Quintet.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b06flpvq)
Bliss Was It in That Dawn, Episode 3

As people get deep into middle age it's normal to look back at your childhood through a golden haze of nostalgia. But what if things really were better in the past? What if, by chance, you were born and grew up in a time and place of unprecedented economic growth and stability?

In this series of five talks for The Essay, Michael Goldfarb, born in the middle of the American Century, looks back at growing up in a US where things really were better: economically and socially. As the US struggles with growing inequality and political gridlock, Goldfarb remembers being born in the afterglow of World War 2, and how the "children of victory" were certain that the future would always be bright.

In this programme, he recalls growing up in an era of full-employment, the 1950s and 60s.


WED 23:00 Canada 150 (b08w6fmj)
Six Nations Reserve

A week of programmes from across Canada, marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of the nation. Tonight, indigenous music from First Nation reserves in Ontario and Quebec.

Beginning on Saturday 24th June, and ending as Canada Day dawns on 1st July, Canada 150 explores the range and diversity of Canadian music and arts, focused mainly on late night on Radio 3, recorded on location across Canada from the Rockies to the eastern seabord.

Other highlights include a specially-commissioned collaboration representing the cultural links between the UK and Canada; and a feature from UK pianist James Rhodes focusing on a legend of Canadian music, Glenn Gould, complete with an interview with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Plus Canada-themed content across Radio 3, with daily 'Canada Moments' on Breakfast, Canadian guests on In Tune, an exploration of Wilderness on Free Thinking, and a Canada-inspired Words and Music.

THU 09:00 Essential Classics (b08vyj26)
Thursday - Rob Cowan with Suzannah Lipscomb

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

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is the historian and broadcaster, Suzannah Lipscomb. Suzannah's interest in history started at home growing up near the site of one of Henry VIII's former palaces, Nonsuch, and since then she's become a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities, London. She's written a number of books about Henry VIII and Tudor England, and has specialised in the study of women in this period. She's also a frequent broadcaster: most recently appearing on our screens in The Great Fire: In Real Time, she also co-wrote and co-presented Henry VIII and his Six Wives for Channel 5, and wrote and presented Hidden Killers for BBC Four. As well as discussing her work as an historian, Suzannah shares her passion for classical music, choosing a selection of her favourite works.

10.30am
Music on Location: Paris
Rob's focus today is on a Psalm by Lili Boulanger, in a recording conducted by Igor Markevitch. Both Boulanger and Markevitch made a big splash in Parisian musical circles in their time.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences between two interpretations of Schubert's Impromptu in A flat major, D.899 No.4 by Mitsuko Uchida and Sergei Rachmaninov, a performance preserved on a piano roll made in 1928.

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the German conductor and violinist, Reinhard Goebel. In 1973 Goebel founded Musica Antiqua Köln, an instrumental ensemble initially made up of his fellow students at the Cologne Conservatory. Together they became one of the leading exponents of Baroque performance practice and have played a significant role in increasing the profile of Baroque composers such as Telemann, Heinichen, Biber and the wider Bach dynasty. Goebel usually led the group from the violin, but an unexpected focal dystonia in his left hand brought his solo career to an end and forced him to bow with the other arm. In 2000 he gave up the violin entirely and focused on conducting, but he is still Professor of Baroque Violin at the Mozarteum, Salzburg. This week Rob's chosen a selection of Goebel's recordings with Musica Antiqua Köln: their highly-acclaimed account of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.3, a motet by Heinrich Bach (J.S. Bach's great-uncle), part of Telemann's Tafelmusik, Biber's programmatic Battalia and one of Heinichen's Dresden Concerti.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08vyj6z)
Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), Death of a Daughter

The death of their eldest daughter has a profound effect on Gustav and Alma. Donald Macleod continues the story of their marriage, and its relationship to Mahler's music.

Their relationship wasn't always the happiest, the terms he laid down for their marriage were far from fair, and she wasn't always faithful to her husband. But Alma Mahler exerted a powerful fascination on Gustav Mahler, and proved not only an inspiration but a also a very practical support for his working and creative life.

In today's episode, the event about which Mahler had composed a cycle of songs (Kindertotenlieder or 'songs on the deaths of children') actually happens. The loss of the Mahler's eldest child is a numbing shock, prompting the couple to seek a change of scene as far away as New York. Alma finds consolation in her unhappiness through dancing with the man whom she would eventually marry. And Gustav will open up his heart on the psychiatrist's couch, when he visits Sigmund Freud.

As people get deep into middle age it's normal to look back at your childhood through a golden haze of nostalgia. But what if things really were better in the past? What if, by chance, you were born and grew up in a time and place of unprecedented economic growth and stability?

In this series of five talks for The Essay, Michael Goldfarb, born in the middle of the American Century, looks back at growing up in a US where things really were better: economically and socially. As the US struggles with growing inequality and political gridlock, Goldfarb remembers being born in the afterglow of World War 2, and how the "children of victory" were certain that the future would always be bright.

Rob's guest this week is the historian and broadcaster, Suzannah Lipscomb. Suzannah's interest in history started at home growing up near the site of one of Henry VIII's former palaces, Nonsuch, and since then she's become a Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities, London. She's written a number of books about Henry VIII and Tudor England, and has specialised in the study of women in this period. She's also a frequent broadcaster: most recently appearing on our screens in The Great Fire: In Real Time, she also co-wrote and co-presented Henry VIII and his Six Wives for Channel 5, and wrote and presented Hidden Killers for BBC Four. As well as discussing her work as an historian, Suzannah shares her passion for classical music, choosing a selection of her favourite works.

Rob explores Delius's impressionist, nocturnal portrait of Paris, a city which he described as "mysterious", and a "city of pleasures".

11am
Rob's Artist of the Week is the German conductor and violinist, Reinhard Goebel. In 1973 Goebel founded Musica Antiqua Köln, an instrumental ensemble initially made up of his fellow students at the Cologne Conservatory. Together they became one of the leading exponents of Baroque performance practice and have played a significant role in increasing the profile of Baroque composers such as Telemann, Heinichen, Biber and the wider Bach dynasty. Goebel usually led the group from the violin, but an unexpected focal dystonia in his left hand brought his solo career to an end and forced him to bow with the other arm. In 2000 he gave up the violin entirely and focused on conducting, but he is still Professor of Baroque Violin at the Mozarteum, Salzburg. This week Rob's chosen a selection of Goebel's recordings with Musica Antiqua Köln: their highly-acclaimed account of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.3, a motet by Heinrich Bach (J.S. Bach's great-uncle), part of Telemann's Tafelmusik, Biber's programmatic Battalia and one of Heinichen's Dresden Concerti.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08vyj71)
Gustav Mahler (1860-1911), Playing with Numbers

In his late works, Mahler tries to play with numbers and outwit God or Fate. Donald Macleod concludes his account of the marriage between Gustav and Alma, and its effect on the composer's output.

Their relationship wasn't always the happiest, the terms he laid down for their marriage were far from fair, and she wasn't always faithful to her husband. But Alma Mahler exerted a powerful fascination on Gustav Mahler, and proved not only an inspiration but a also a very practical support for his working and creative life.

In this final episode,Gustav finds musical inspiration in Chinese poetry, and the Mahlers pursue their interest in Chinese culture by visiting a New York opium den. Wracked by guilt over the deep unhappiness that had driven Alma into the arms of the young architect Walter Gropius, Mahler pours out some of his turbulent feelings into the score of his unfinished 10th Symphony - a work over which Alma would maintain a controlling interest after Mahler's death in 1911.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b06flpvx)
Bliss Was It in That Dawn, Episode 5

As people get deep into middle age it's normal to look back at your childhood through a golden haze of nostalgia. But what if things really were better in the past? What if, by chance, you were born and grew up in a time and place of unprecedented economic growth and stability?

In this series of five talks for The Essay, Michael Goldfarb, born in the middle of the American Century, looks back at growing up in a US where things really were better: economically and socially. As the US struggles with social disintegration and political gridlock, Goldfarb remembers being born in the afterglow of World War 2, and how the "children of victory" were certain that the future would always be bright.

In this programme, he remembers the politics of 1960s America as anarchic violence tempered by youthful hope.


FRI 23:00 Canada 150 (b08w6fmq)
The Maritimes - a Prince Edward Island Kitchen Party

A week of programmes from across Canada, marking the 150th anniversary of the founding of the nation. Tonight, a Prince Edward Island Kitchen Party: from the island where French, English, Scottish and Irish traditions meet, Mary Ann Kennedy witnesses a battle of the bands featuring Francophone band Vishten versus Anglophones Gordie MacKeeman and his Rhythm Boys. Also including a Radio 3-commissioned collaboration exploring historical links between Nova Scotia and Scotland though a sound composition created by Amanda Christie, a Canadian with Scottish ancestry - it features Gaelic psalm-singing from the Isle of Lewis mixed with nature sounds from around eastern Canada. Plus a session with Teresa Doyle, a singer with Scots and Irish roots.

Beginning on Saturday 24th June, and ending as Canada Day dawns on 1st July, Canada 150 explores the range and diversity of Canadian music and arts, focused mainly on late night on Radio 3, and recorded on location across Canada from the Rockies to the eastern seabord. Canada's classical music scene is reflected in contemporary music from Banff in the Rocky Mountains, plus an Early Music Show from Montreal; Francophone and Anglophone traditional folk are represented in a kitchen party from Prince Edward Island; jazz and indigenous music is highlighted in programmes from Calgary and the Six Nations Reserve; and Canada's lively indie music scene is reflected with sets from the CBC's Music Festival in Toronto. Other highlights include a specially-commissioned collaboration representing the cultural links between the UK and Canada; and a feature from UK pianist James Rhodes focusing on a legend of Canadian music, Glenn Gould, complete with an interview with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Plus Canada-themed content across Radio 3, with daily 'Canada Moments' on Breakfast, Canadian guests on In Tune, an exploration of Wilderness on Free Thinking, and a Canada-inspired Words and Music.
