SAT 12:15 New Generation Artists (b08yrcf3)
Beatrice Rana plays Liszt's B minor Sonata

Clemency Burton-Hill celebrates the music-making of the current BBC New Generation Artists. In this second of two Saturday mid-day programmes, the remarkable Italian pianist, Beatrice Rana tackles one of the pinnacles of the Romantic repertoire. Liszt's half-hour-long sonata grows out of silence and takes us on a journey of epic drama and diabolical virtuosity before ending in the mysterious silence of its opening. Beatrice Rana's performance was caught by the BBC microphones earlier this year. The other work in today's programme grows out of Liszt's world and, as clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe says, "It too is notable as much for the silences as the notes themselves." Both artists appear at the BBC Proms on Monday, with Beatrice Rana playing the Schumann Piano Concerto and Annelien Van Wauwe playing the Mozart Clarinet Quintet.

Alban Berg: 4 Pieces, Op.5, for clarinet and piano

Beethoven: Symphony No 3 in E flat major, 'Eroica'

Aurora Orchestra
Nicholas Collon, conductor

No symphony pulses more vigorously with the rhythms of political protest than Beethoven's 'Eroica', whose defiant opening chords mark the arrival of the Romantic symphony. In their novel introduction, BBC Radio 3's Tom Service and conductor Nicholas Collon dismantle and reassemble this groundbreaking work, with the help of live excerpts, before the Aurora Orchestra gets under the skin of the work by performing the complete symphony from memory.
The concert also includes Richard Strauss's 1945 Metamorphosen. Scored for 23 solo strings, this ecstatic, elegiac work closes with an 'Eroica' quotation that mourns the devastation brought about by another, even darker, political regime.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07z6y3v)
Paterson Joseph

Paterson Joseph bunked off school when he was thirteen and spent the next two years going to the local library instead, reading his way from Agatha Christie through to Alexander Pushkin. It was a good training for someone who's become one of our most versatile and successful actors. Paterson Joseph is well known from numerous Shakespeare productions at the RSC and the Royal Exchange Manchester, and from Casualty and Dr Who. He achieved notoriety as the grotesque boss Alan Johnson in Peep Show. Paterson Joseph has recently been touring America with a show that he's written himself, about one of his heroes - the black 18th-century London grocer and composer Ignatius Sancho.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about why Sancho has been unjustly neglected, and what he thinks about "colour-blind" casting.

Music choices include Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin, Louis Armstrong, Bach, Charlie Mingus, Billie Holliday - and Ignatius Sancho.

The vocal ensemble is joined by strings, cornetts and continuo to explore love, lust, anger, jealousy and despair in a concert that spans the gamut of Monteverdi's music, both sacred and secular.
This season's first Monday-lunchtime Prom at Cadogan Hall also includes the world premiere of a new commission from composer, baritone and Proms regular Roderick Williams, inspired by the text of a well known aria from Mozart's Don Giovanni.

BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Nicola Benedetti, violin
Thomas Søndergård, conductor

Violinist Nicola Benedetti joins Thomas Søndergård and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales as they continue their exploration of music by Shostakovich and Sibelius. Here they pair the latter's stirring Second Symphony - adopted as a potent symbol of nationalism and resistance by the people of Finland - with Shostakovich's symphonic poem October, a work whose subversive musical message sees the composer at his most pointedly political.

Shostakovich dedicated his First Violin Concerto to the celebrated violinist David Oistrakh, who praised its solo part as 'Shakespearean', and the concerto's demonic Scherzo gives its soloist plenty of opportunity for virtuosity.

Plus the man himself in various interviews from the last 40 years. If you know Berger well there will be much to enjoy and if you don't know Berger at all you will be drawn into the ideas, politics and personality of this most distinctive and fertile intellectual figure.

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

9.30
Take part in today's musical challenge: identify a piece of music played in reverse. 

10am
Rob's guest this week is the highly acclaimed theatre, opera and film director Nicholas Hytner. Until recently Nicholas was Director of the National Theatre, a role he held for nearly 12 years. He began his directing career in the opera house as an assistant at English National Opera, where he went on to lead productions of Wagner, Handel and Mozart. In 1989 he directed the first production of Miss Saigon in the West End and soon afterwards began his long association with the National Theatre. At the National, Nicholas directed the original theatre production of Alan Bennett's The History Boys before directing the much-loved film adaptation. This was by no means his first or last collaboration with Bennett; he directed both the stage and film productions of Bennett's The Madness of George III and The Lady in the Van. As well as discussing his work as a director, Nicholas shares his passion for classical music, choosing a selection of his favourite works by composers including Monteverdi, Sibelius and Britten.

10.30
Music on Location: Rome
Rob spends the week exploring the classical music connections found in the city of Rome, beginning with Respighi's symphonic poem Fountains of Rome; the piece depicts four of the city's fountains, each at a different time of day.

11am
Rob's Proms Artist of the Week is the Scottish pianist Steven Osborne. Osborne is publicly acknowledged as one of the great pianists of his generation; in 2013 he was named Instrumentalist of the Year by The Royal Philharmonic Society and he is the recipient of two Gramophone awards. Osborne has given concerto performances and recitals around the world and is a regular at the BBC Proms; this year he is giving the premiere of a new piano concerto by Julian Anderson with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (BBCSSO). Osborne has a long-term relationship with the BBCSSO and this week Rob has chosen their recordings of Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major, Britten's Piano Concerto in D major, Stravinsky's Concerto for piano and wind instruments, and Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain. We'll also hear Osborne's award-winning recording of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08yrqn6)
William James Mathias (1934-1992), Heading for London

Donald Macleod explores Mathias's student days in Aberystwyth and London

Marking the 25th anniversary since the death of the Welsh composer William James Mathias, his daughter Rhiannon Mathias and friend Geraint Lewis join Donald Macleod to explore the composer's extraordinary life and music. During his career Mathias had his works regularly performed on an international stage. His orchestral score Laudi was at one point the most often performed work by any living British composer. Mathias was frequently inundated with commissions, including one to compose music for the wedding of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in 1981. Alongside composing, Mathias was busy teaching new talent at Bangor University, whilst also sitting as a member of the Welsh Arts Council, the British Council, and the Music Advisory Board of the BBC. During his life he was involved in the transition to full professional status of Welsh National Opera, active in the development of the then BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, and oversaw the founding of the National Youth Choir and Youth Brass Band of Wales. He was highly active on the British musical scene, and greatly disciplined to have achieved so much during his lifetime. He died aged 57 in 1992 having composed many works including symphonies and concertos.

From the age of five William Mathias started to compose music. By the time he was six he'd also started to learn the piano, and would become a highly accomplished pianist. Mathias was born in Whitland in South Wales, and learnt much about music not only from his mother, but also from the then newly-launched Third Programme. He went to the University of Aberystwyth to study English, French and Philosophy, but was encouraged by Ian Parrott to change to music instead. His Flute Sonatina dates from this period, as does his first Piano Concerto which Mathias performed in front of the composer Edmund Rubbra as part of his undergraduate examination. Mathias graduated from Aberystwyth with a First Class honours degree, and went to study music with Lennox Berkeley at the Royal Academy of Music. These lessons often took place in his tutor's home in Little Venice, where Berkeley would gently encourage Mathias to find his own musical voice rather than pursuing the avant garde.

Live from Cadogan Hall, London
Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Webern: Langsamer Satz
Laurent Durupt: Grids for Greed (BBC commission: world premiere)
Mozart: Clarinet Quintet in A major

Van Kuijk Quartet
Annelien Van Wauwe clarinet

Two of BBC Radio 3's current New Generation Artists come together for a programme of chamber music spanning over 200 years.
The Van Kuijk Quartet joins forces with clarinettist Annelien Van Wauwe for Mozart's lyrical Clarinet Quintet, whose expansive melodies and sunny A major key belie the struggles and sadnesses of his personal life.
Webern's Langsamer Satz (Slow Movement) is, by contrast, the ecstatic outpouring of a young man in love, happier than ever before and writing music once described as 'Tristan and Isolde compressed into 11 minutes'.
In his first string quartet, which today receives its world premiere, French composer and pianist Laurent Durupt explores contrasts both of musical material and musical time and asks whether the differences are conflicting or complementary.

Producer Ellie Mant.


MON 14:00 Afternoon on 3 (b08yrtbb)
Prom 7 repeat: Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique

Another chance to hear the BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor Joshua Weilerstein perform Rebel, Berlioz and the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin's Outscape at this year's BBC Proms.
Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch from the Royal Albert Hall, London.

Jean-Féry Rebel: Le Chaos from "Les Elémens"
Pascal Dusapin: Outscape* (BBC co-commission: UK premiere)
Hector Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique, Op.14

Alisa Weilerstein (cello)*
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Joshua Weilerstein (conductor)

Visions of chaos give way to a diabolical scene in a musical thrill-ride that takes us from creation itself to the wild dances of a Witches' Sabbath. Jean-Féry Rebel's suite The Elements is one of Baroque music's most unusual works, opening with a vivid portrait of Chaos. The same audacity surfaces a century later in Berlioz's quasi-autobiographical Symphonie fantastique, whose large orchestral forces and colourful textures make it a perfect fit for the Royal Albert Hall.

Star cellist Alisa Weilerstein is soloist for the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin's nature-inspired concerto Outscape - a work written for her - while her brother, rising young star Joshua Weilerstein, conducts.

First broadcast on Wednesday 19 July

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

MON 22:15 Sunday Feature (b078658m)
First Folio Road Trip

From London to Kent, Oxford, the Scottish borders, Suffolk, Nottinghamshire and across the channel to France, Emma Smith takes a road trip to learn more about how Shakespeare's First Folio helped create the Shakespeare we know and love today.

We take it for granted now that Shakespeare is our national poet, and his First Folio almost a religious relic, but it wasn't always so. Emma follows the story of seven of the 750 original copies of the First Folio to learn how Shakespeare's work spread across Britain and Europe, and how his reputation expanded in the hundred odd years between its publication in 1623 and the erection of his statue in Westminster Abbey in 1741.

She learns about Sir Edward Dering, a shopaholic young nobleman from Kent, the first documented purchaser of a First Folio, which he bought along with a scarlet suits, a pot of marmalade and a present for his baby son.

She hears about two real-life star-crossed lovers, Thomas and Isabella Hervey, from Ickworth in Suffolk, and examines the signatures they wrote in every copy of their shared library, including a First Folio.

She shares a hollow laugh with the current librarian of the Bodleian Library, which acquired a First Folio and then sold it.

She travels to St Omer in Northern France to see the most recently rediscovered copy and learn about the English Catholic schoolboys who may have performed extracts from it there.

Having viewed a range of First Folios (see related links for examples on display across the UK) Emma considers the spread outwards of Shakespeare's reputation and inwards, deep into our lives.

Emma Smith is Professor of Shakespeare Studies at Hertford College Oxford and the author of a new book on the First Folio.

Producer: Beaty Rubens.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Nicholas Hytner

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

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

10am
Rob's guest this week is the highly acclaimed theatre, opera and film director Nicholas Hytner. Until recently Nicholas was Director of the National Theatre, a role he held for nearly 12 years. He began his directing career in the opera house as an assistant at English National Opera, where he went on to lead productions of Wagner, Handel and Mozart. In 1989 he directed the first production of Miss Saigon in the West End and soon afterwards began his long association with the National Theatre. At the National, Nicholas directed the original theatre production of Alan Bennett's The History Boys before directing the much-loved film adaptation. This was by no means his first or last collaboration with Bennett; he directed both the stage and film productions of Bennett's The Madness of George III and The Lady in the Van. As well as discussing his work as a director, Nicholas shares his passion for classical music, choosing a selection of his favourite works by composers including Monteverdi, Sibelius and Britten.

Music on Location: Rome
Rob explores an opera set in Rome: Puccini's Tosca. The third act is set in the Castel Sant'Angelo, which was built during the time of Emperor Hadrian and later used as a Papal fortress.

11am
Rob's Proms Artist of the Week is the Scottish pianist Steven Osborne. Osborne is publicly acknowledged as one of the great pianists of his generation; in 2013 he was named Instrumentalist of the Year by The Royal Philharmonic Society and he is the recipient of two Gramophone awards. Osborne has given concerto performances and recitals around the world and is a regular at the BBC Proms; this year he is giving the premiere of a new piano concerto by Julian Anderson with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (BBCSSO). Osborne has a long-term relationship with the BBCSSO and this week Rob has chosen their recordings of Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major, Britten's Piano Concerto in D major, Stravinsky's Concerto for piano and wind instruments, and Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain. We'll also hear Osborne's award-winning recording of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08yx8dd)
William James Mathias (1934-1992), Teaching in Bangor

Donald Macleod follows Mathias's return to Wales to teach at Bangor University

Marking the 25th anniversary since the death of the Welsh composer William James Mathias, his daughter Rhiannon Mathias and friend Geraint Lewis join Donald Macleod to explore the composer's extraordinary life and music. During his career Mathias had his works regularly performed on an international stage. His orchestral score Laudi was at one point the most often performed work by any living British composer. Mathias was frequently inundated with commissions, including one to compose music for the wedding of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in 1981. Alongside composing, Mathias was busy teaching new talent at Bangor University, whilst also sitting as a member of the Welsh Arts Council, the British Council, and the Music Advisory Board of the BBC. During his life he was involved in the transition to full professional status of Welsh National Opera, active in the development of the then BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, and oversaw the founding of the National Youth Choir and Youth Brass Band of Wales. He was highly active on the British musical scene, and greatly disciplined to have achieved so much during his lifetime. He died aged 57 in 1992 having composed many works including symphonies and concertos.

After graduating from Aberystwyth, William Mathias went to study with Lennox Berkeley at the Royal Academy of Music in London. His own musical language was emerging at this time, including what would become regular traits - a taste for syncopation and his harmonic language. During this period of the late 1950s and early '60s, Oxford University Press began to publish music by Mathias, which they then regularly did throughout his lifetime. Mathias also met a fellow student at the RAM, Yvonne Collins, and they were married in 1959. The newlyweds soon returned to Wales where Mathias took up his first teaching post as Lecturer in Music at the University College of North Wales, Bangor. This was a busy period when, on top of teaching commitments, Mathias explored and expanded his own musical voice with works such as his Invocations for organ. As an accomplished pianist Mathias also performed in the premiere of his third Piano Concerto in 1968, alongside the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Swansea Festival.

The first of three politically charged stage works this season is Beethoven's only opera, 'Fidelio' - a passionate musical protest against political oppression, first performed in Vienna in the wake of the French Revolution to an audience mostly consisting of Napoleon's troops. At its heart is the stirring "Prisoners' Chorus", a poignant hymn to freedom and the power of the human spirit. The BBC Philharmonic brings its highly acclaimed performance to the Proms with a cast starring Australian tenor Stuart Skelton as the imprisoned Florestan, and soprano Ricarda Merbeth as his faithful and resourceful wife Leonore.

Proms favourite, John Wilson, makes his first appearance at the Proms as the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra's new Associate Guest Conductor. Here he swaps Hollywood and Broadway classics for another of his personal passions: the great British symphonic classics. Holst's galactic suite conjures up the epic scope of a movie blockbuster in luminous music of infinite vistas, while Vaughan Williams's enigmatic final symphony also revels in an augmented sound-world: it's a piece Wilson sees as a suitably radical counterpart to The Planets.

TUE 21:30 Sunday Feature (b078wtnh)
Still Will

For a poet and playwright whose virtuosic way with words continues to dominate all of English literature four centuries on, there's an extraordinary and often overlooked potency also in his silences, stillness and quietness.

Laura Barton listens closely to the spaces between the Bard's words and explores the acoustic qualities of the circumstances in which they were performed. She talks with the actor Niamh Cusack, who's played Desdemona and Juliet in large theatres and, most recently, Paulina in The Winter's Tale at the intimate Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Acoustician Byron Harrison imagines the soundworld inhabited by actors on the Elizabethan stage and unpicks the science of theatre design. Shakespeare scholar Lesel Dawson reads the plays for moments of silent wonder, resistance, horror and narrative tension and Steven Connor considers how the celebrated wordsmith communicates 'beyond words' - looking with ears, hearing with eyes.

William James Mathias (1934-1992), Inspiration from Wales

Donald Macleod surveys works by William Mathias inspired by Wales

Marking the 25th anniversary since the death of the Welsh composer William James Mathias, his daughter Rhiannon Mathias and friend Geraint Lewis join Donald Macleod to explore the composer's extraordinary life and music. During his career Mathias had his works regularly performed on an international stage. His orchestral score Laudi was at one point the most often performed work by any living British composer. Mathias was frequently inundated with commissions, including one to compose music for the wedding of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in 1981. Alongside composing, Mathias was busy teaching new talent at Bangor University, whilst also sitting as a member of the Welsh Arts Council, the British Council, and the Music Advisory Board of the BBC. During his life he was involved in the transition to full professional status of Welsh National Opera, active in the development of the then BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, and oversaw the founding of the National Youth Choir and Youth Brass Band of Wales. He was highly active on the British musical scene, and greatly disciplined to have achieved so much during his lifetime. He died aged 57 in 1992 having composed many works including symphonies and concertos.

In 1968 William Mathias left his teaching post in Bangor and headed to Scotland to take up an appointment as Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh. This was a happy period for Mathias and Yvonne, when their daughter Rhiannon was also born. However, the family would only remain in Scotland for one year, for with the illness and subsequent death of his father, Mathias and his family headed back to Wales, where he intended to become a jobbing composer. By 1970 though, a new opportunity came Mathias's way and he was appointed Professor and Head of Music at Bangor University, where he remained for many years. This return to Wales inspired a number of new works, including his Harp Concerto, which was commissioned by the Llandaff Festival and premiered by Osian Ellis. Mathias also received a number of choral commissions, including This Worlde's Joie for the Fishguard Festival and, setting words by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, he composed his dark and turbulent Ceremony after a Fire Raid premiered by The Scholars in London.

The Venice Ghetto

To mark the 500th anniversary of the Venice Ghetto, Jerry Brotton travels to the city to discover how this ghetto became to be the first of its kind in the world.

He finds that rather than living in isolation, the Jewish community of Venice was open to cultural exchange with Christian neighbours. It became a place of refuge and attracted Jewish migrants from other parts of Europe to live on the island in the city.

Jerry Brotton brings the story up to date with an examination of what the word 'ghetto' means to us today, in a North American context and with reference to contemporary events in Europe.

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

9.30
Take part in today's musical challenge: two pieces of music are played together - can you identify them?

10am
Rob's guest this week is the highly acclaimed theatre, opera and film director Nicholas Hytner. Until recently Nicholas was Director of the National Theatre, a role he held for nearly 12 years. He began his directing career in the opera house as an assistant at English National Opera, where he went on to lead productions of Wagner, Handel and Mozart. In 1989 he directed the first production of Miss Saigon in the West End and soon afterwards began his long association with the National Theatre. At the National, Nicholas directed the original theatre production of Alan Bennett's The History Boys before directing the much-loved film adaptation. This was by no means his first or last collaboration with Bennett; he directed both the stage and film productions of Bennett's The Madness of George III and The Lady in the Van. As well as discussing his work as a director, Nicholas shares his passion for classical music, choosing a selection of his favourite works by composers including Monteverdi, Sibelius and Britten.

Music on Location: Rome
Rob explores the life of a composer who spent most of his career in Rome: Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina.

Osborne is publicly acknowledged as one of the great pianists of his generation; in 2013 he was named Instrumentalist of the Year by The Royal Philharmonic Society and he is the recipient of two Gramophone awards. Osborne has given concerto performances and recitals around the world and is a regular at the BBC Proms; this year he is giving the premiere of a new piano concerto by Julian Anderson with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (BBCSSO). Osborne has a long-term relationship with the BBCSSO and this week Rob has chosen their recordings of Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major, Britten's Piano Concerto in D major, Stravinsky's Concerto for piano and wind instruments, and Manuel de Falla's Nights in the Gardens of Spain.

William James Mathias (1934-1992), Juggling commitments

Donald Macleod explores Mathias's busy career teaching and composing

Marking the 25th anniversary since the death of the Welsh composer William James Mathias, his daughter Rhiannon Mathias and friend Geraint Lewis join Donald Macleod to explore the composer's extraordinary life and music. During his career Mathias had his works regularly performed on an international stage. His orchestral score Laudi was at one point the most often performed work by any living British composer. Mathias was frequently inundated with commissions, including one to compose music for the wedding of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in 1981. Alongside composing, Mathias was busy teaching new talent at Bangor University, whilst also sitting as a member of the Welsh Arts Council, the British Council, and the Music Advisory Board of the BBC. During his life he was involved in the transition to full professional status of Welsh National Opera, active in the development of the then BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, and oversaw the founding of the National Youth Choir and Youth Brass Band of Wales. He was highly active on the British musical scene, and greatly disciplined to have achieved so much during his lifetime. He died aged 57 in 1992 having composed many works including symphonies and concertos.

During his career William Mathias had the opportunity of writing concertos for many leading performers, including the violinist Gyorgy Pauk, organist Gillian Weir, flautist William Bennett and oboist Sarah Francis. Mathias also composed a Clarinet Concerto for Gervase de Peyer, although Mathias was so busy with other commitments that the work was a number of years late. In order to undertake all these commissions and collaborations that came his way, including writing an opera with Iris Murdoch, Mathias had a very disciplined routine which also had to include his teaching and management commitments at Bangor University. By the early 1980s Mathias composed his Lux aeterna, written in memory of his mother. It includes words from the Mass for the Dead, and was premiered at the Three Choirs Festival in 1982. Around that same period, Geraint Lewis was interviewed by Mathias for a position at Bangor, and recalled being a day late returning to the University of Oxford, due to Mathias's fondness for entertaining.

Presented by Tom Service from the Royal Albert Hall, London

Richard Strauss: Metamorphosen
Beethoven: Symphony No 3 in E flat major, 'Eroica'

Aurora Orchestra
Nicholas Collon, conductor

No symphony pulses more vigorously with the rhythms of political protest than Beethoven's 'Eroica', whose defiant opening chords mark the arrival of the Romantic symphony. In their novel introduction, BBC Radio 3's Tom Service and conductor Nicholas Collon dismantle and reassemble this groundbreaking work, with the help of live excerpts, before the Aurora Orchestra gets under the skin of the work by performing the complete symphony from memory.
The concert also includes Richard Strauss's 1945 Metamorphosen. Scored for 23 solo strings, this ecstatic, elegiac work closes with an 'Eroica' quotation that mourns the devastation brought about by another, even darker, political regime.

First broadcast on Saturday 22nd July

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

Inspired by Victorian seances, he conjures up eerie visions of a world beyond.


THU 22:00 Sunday Feature (b07bvjcn)
God Intoxicated Man - The Life and Times of Benedict Spinoza

Michael Goldfarb tells the story of Dutch philosopher Benedict Spinoza, who asked Who is God? and what role should religion play in government.

In the middle of 17th-century Europe religion and politics were inseparable and the result was bloodshed everywhere. Then a Dutch Jew, Benedict Spinoza, wrote a book that challenged this idea of government. His argument: get priests and clergy out of politics. People should not be ruled by monarchs who claimed they were anointed by God. Let there be democracy, where reason and intellect guide the state.

You can guess how this argument was received. Spinoza was called "the renegade Jew from Hell."

Michael Goldfarb tells the story of this God Intoxicated Man and the world in which he lived - the Golden Age of the Dutch Republic - and how he has become the philosopher with new relevance for our times. Atheist, pantheist, heretic, or none of those things; man of science and moral philosopher, Spinoza's conception of the universe has influenced scientists, playwrights, novelists, poets and musicians.

Using Spinoza's own words, interviews with philosophers and music inspired by his thoughts, Goldfarb tells the story of the man of whom it was said, "Christ was sent to redeem man. Spinoza was born for a far greater purpose. He was born to redeem God.".

In the 4th programme of the series, the Guardian's film critic Peter Bradshaw describes how he was reunited with his electric guitar, decades after having given it away.

He explores what playing the instrument meant to him as a youngster and assesses how he approaches it now as an adult. He examines the pleasures and pitfalls of relearning an instrument. And he marvels at the beauty of the electric guitar itself.

William James Mathias (1934-1992), Planning His Fourth Symphony

Donald Macleod delves into Mathias's final years and plans for a fourth symphony

Marking the 25th anniversary since the death of the Welsh composer William James Mathias, his daughter Rhiannon Mathias and friend Geraint Lewis join Donald Macleod to explore the composer's extraordinary life and music. During his career Mathias had his works regularly performed on an international stage. His orchestral score Laudi was at one point the most often performed work by any living British composer. Mathias was frequently inundated with commissions, including one to compose music for the wedding of His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales in 1981. Alongside composing, Mathias was busy teaching new talent at Bangor University, whilst also sitting as a member of the Welsh Arts Council, the British Council, and the Music Advisory Board of the BBC. During his life he was involved in the transition to full professional status of Welsh National Opera, active in the development of the then BBC Welsh Symphony Orchestra, and oversaw the founding of the National Youth Choir and Youth Brass Band of Wales. He was highly active on the British musical scene, and greatly disciplined to have achieved so much during his lifetime. He died aged 57 in 1992 having composed many works including symphonies and concertos.

William Mathias composed Let the People Praise Thee, O God for the wedding of The Prince of Wales in 1981. It received its premiere during that service, which was broadcast around the world. After this event Mathias was often contacted to compose other wedding anthems for various people, but he was inclined to turn these commissions down so he could focus on what he wanted to write. By the late 1980s Mathias took early retirement from the University of Bangor, and then in 1990 he underwent surgery. He wasn't allowed to compose for a period, but then he completed his Symphony No 3 which, after his recent experiences, has a feeling of pent-up energy. Two years later Mathias died of cancer, but right up to the end he remained positive and was planning his fourth symphony, although in his final months he'd realised it would never come to fruition.
