9.30am Building a Library
Building a Library: Natasha Loges recommends the best recording of Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder. These five settings of poems by Mathilde Wesendonck were written in the late 1850s, when Wagner was staying by their villa in Zurich. He'd fallen deeply in love with Mathilde and although no one knows what really happened between them, the mutual infatuation certainly contributed to the intensity in the creation of his opera Tristan und Isolde. Nested within that opera are these five songs steeped in yearning and lust which share the motifs of night and day, the sun and the sea.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b096g27p)
Give Me Space Below My Feet

Is it possible to take the legendary climber 93-year-old Gwen Moffat back up into the mountains? Gwen was Britain's first ever female mountain guide and only gave up scaling peaks in her eighties, but set us a challenge: to give her the sensation of climbing once again, from the comfort of her armchair.

In a new poetry commission, Helen Mort attempts to do so by weaving Gwen's memories with an original poem and binaural recordings she made of a climb in Langdale in the Lake District.

Binaural stereo allows you to enter a three dimensional world, it is an immersive experience which allows you to hear, exactly as Helen did on her climb, to the wind whistling past her ears as she teeters on the rock face.

So put on your earphones for the full effect and don't look down as we attempt to transport Gwen back to her heady days of adventure and freedom. Can we give her the feeling of...space below her feet?

There's also lighter fare from Sidney Torch and Percy Grainger, and a focus on the great guitarist Julian Bream. At 11.15, she introduces a new feature, Sarah's Sunday Escape, with dream-like music to take one's mind off the pressures of the day, and this week it is the Rose Adagio from Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b096g5l7)
Maurice Riordan

Maurice Riordan is a poet much preoccupied with time - how time suddenly stands still, or speeds up, or loops you back in dreams to childhood - in his case, to the countryside of County Cork where he grew up. It's a theme he's explored in four prize-winning collections of verse, alongside translations and a series of anthologies - including an anthology of very early Irish poetry, scribbled by Irish monks in the margins of Latin texts. In his day job, he's professor of poetry at Sheffield Hallam University and was until recently editor of Poetry Review.

In Private Passions, Maurice Riordan talks to Michael Berkeley about his childhood in the "horse-drawn, candle-lit" Irish countryside and the music which inspires him, beginning with the Gregorian Chant he heard as a young altar boy. We hear the haunting unaccompanied voice of the traditional Irish singer Darach Ó Cathain, and of the Traveller and banjo player Margaret Barry. Other choices include Debussy, Piazzola and Samuel Barber. Ian Bostridge sings an aria from Monteverdi's Orfeo, begging the boatman Charon to carry him to the underworld: a metaphor, Riordan believes, for what poets do. They take you, he claims, deep down into the underworld of the unconscious. To illustrate this, he reads "The January Birds", a poem about hearing birds singing in a local cemetery:

The birds in Nunhead Cemetery begin
Before I've flicked a switch, turned on the gas.
There must be some advantage to the light
I tell myself, viewing my slackened chin
Mirrored in the rain-dark window glass,
While from the graveyard's trees, the birds begin...

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b096smmh)
Why is opera so ridiculous?

Tom Service considers opera - capable of the greatest profundity and beauty, why is it so often also ridiculous? From Mozart to Birtwistle, Tom explores the highs and lows of this dramatic genre, and talks to two expert witnesses - the acclaimed comic writer Armando Iannucci, who is an opera-lover who sees the absurd side of it; and international soprano Lore Lixenberg, star of the high-camp Jerry Springer: The Opera, who recently opened a singing café in Berlin called Pret A Chanter where customers must sing rather than speak.
Pret A Chanter is a post-internet real-time opera that seeks to blur the boundaries between art and life. Anyone who steps over the threshold must abide by the rules of the opera. The main rule is: No Speaking. Only Vocalisations other than speaking are allowed.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b096g5lk)
Every County in the State of California

When Dana Gioia was appointed Poet Laureate of California in 2015 he was invited to read in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento. But Gioia believes the role is to encourage poetry throughout the state. He has a mission: to visit every county in the state of California.

There are 58, stretching from Del Norte 1,000 miles south to Imperial, bordering Mexico; from the Sierra mountains and redwood forests to the desert; densely populated Los Angeles (almost 10 million) to almost empty Modoc (fewer than 10,000); with established communities from Mexico and Europe joined recently by people from the Far East.

Everywhere Gioia is joined by other poets and young people participating in Poetry Out Loud. For nine years Gioia was Chair of the National Endowment for the Arts. One of his initiatives was this nationwide competition for young people to memorise and recite poems. It is astonishingly popular.

40-odd counties in, producer Julian May joins Gioia to create a radio road movie for Radio 3. Gioia reads in a pub yard in Mariposa, an old gold-mining town, while humming birds dart and hover. A few days later Gioia hears of a huge wildfire coming within a mile of the wooden town. In a library in Madera, roasting in California's central valley, a woman from Peru recites a love poem in Spanish. In marches a squad of lads - military boots, buzzcuts. They are from the juvenile hall youth correctional facility. Each, says Officer Martinez, can recite a poem by heart. There is an event in Turlock, settled by Assyrians, another in San Diego near Mexico and, in his home county, Sonoma, Gioia appears at poetry event in a vineyard.

All this, and more, in 'Every County in the State of California', a radio road movie.

Presenter:Dana Gioia
Producer: Julian May.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07pfc4k)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), A Family Holiday

Donald Macleod places the teenage Mendelssohn's exceptional talent in music alongside his abilities as a keen amateur landscape artist, including extracts from his youthful Octet and Concerto in D minor for strings.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Already making a name as a composer, in 1822 Mendelssohn produced some 40 odd sketches on a three month holiday. Being left behind when the family convoy of carriages set off from Potsdam doesn't appear to have dampened the thirteen year old's spirit. Arriving in Switzerland, Mendelssohn was inspired, as Turner had been before him by the sight of the Rigi Kulm.

You can see sketches and drawings featured in this week's programme on the Radio 3 website.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b096gqwd)
Stuff Happens, Moving House

Why does stuff have such an emotional hold on us? Why can't we just let it go?

In her previous series for The Essay, Joanna Robertson took us to some of the international cities she's lived in and told us the Shopping News. Now, she takes on the consequences. Stuff Happens - not just to shopaholics but to all of us. It's the seemingly inescapable curse of 21st century consumerism - however hard we try to resist.
In this programme, Joanna Robertson relives some of her frequent house moves in Europe. Once, when relocating from Rome to Berlin, Joanna and her stuff got perilously stuck in the Alps, in almost the same spot as Hannibal and his elephants over two millennia earlier.

Producer: Arlene Gregorius.

0930 Rob explores potential companion pieces for Schubert's "Quartettsatz" D.703.

1050 As part of the BBC Opera Season, leading British mezzo Christine Rice talks about her cultural influences and inspirations.


TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07pj858)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), 1829 - Rain and Mists

Donald Macleod explores the artistic results of Mendelssohn's visit to Scotland, including the Hebrides Overture and a sketch of the Falls at Dunkeld.
Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Mendelssohn's 1829 tour of Scotland is recorded in a series of memorable sketches. The weather was particularly bad, so much so that he developed a different pencil technique in his attempts to capture the cloudy skies and swirling mists. But his visit to Fingal's cave is preserved only in music. The crossing was so rough, and he was so sea-sick, he was unable to produce a sketch.

You can see sketches and drawings featured in this week's programme on the Radio 3 website.

From the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester
Presented by Tom Redmond

Mahler: Symphony No 3

Karen Cargill (mezzo-soprano)
BBC National Chorus of Wales
Boy and Girl Choristers of Gloucester Cathedral
BBC Philharmonic
Juanjo Mena (conductor)

Described by Mahler as "one great hymn to the glory of every aspect of creation" his majestic Third Symphony entrances and humbles us as we are taken on an epic journey through nature; through the meadows, through the animal and human kingdoms, and then beyond that to the realm of the angels and finally to "the love of God". However, he doesn't neglect the "everyday"; we hear a military march, a children's song and fragments of a folk dance too. Mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill joins the orchestra for the awestruck fourth movement, which Mahler titled "What night tells me (mankind)", setting a poem by Nietzsche who searches desperately to make sense of the grief and joy of the world, and the Boy and Girl Choristers of Gloucester Cathedral and the ladies' voices of the BBC National Chorus of Wales bring us the shining bells and the song of the angels.


TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b096gv0d)

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b096gv0g)
Stuff Happens, Tidy Home Tidy Mind

Why is it so hard to get rid of stuff? Why does it have such a hold on us, yet get us down?

In her previous series for The Essay, Joanna Robertson took us to some of the international cities she's lived in and told us the Shopping News. Now, she takes on the consequences. Stuff Happens - not just to shopaholics but to all of us. It's the seemingly inescapable curse of 21st century consumerism - however hard we try to resist.
In this programme, Joanna Robertson aims for a tidy home, and its reward, a tidy mind. Easier said than done - except on one occasion, when she managed quite a coup.
Producer: Arlene Gregorius.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b096gv0j)
Fiona Talkington

On the menu is an early work by Steve Reich, originally written for two pianos (or piano and tape) but reinterpreted on harpsichord by Mahan Esfahani. There's something from duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin's new project, Edgelarks, which draws on British folk and Indian classical traditions as well as Henry's trademark beatbox harmonica. Plus early 80s reggae by Eek-A-Mouse, and Fiona reflects on the recent Punkt festival in Norway.

Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), The Land of Art

The sights and sounds of Italy stimulate Mendelssohn's creative mind. Including part of the Italian Symphony and Surrexit pastor bonus.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Today, we join Mendelssohn in 1830-31 on the Italian leg of his Grand Tour. His itinerary included plenty of time for a romantic encounter, and soaking up art treasures and sketching, so much so that he seems to have done rather more drawing and painting than composing. Presented by Donald Macleod.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b096vc9g)
Rhythm of Life: Kirill Karabits conducts Messiaen's Turangalila-symphonie.

Live from the Lighthouse, Poole

Presented by Martin Handley

Rhythm of Life: Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Bizet and Messiaen.

Bizet: Symphony in C

8.05: Interval

Messiaen: Turangalîla-symphonie

Cynthia Millar, Ondes Martinot
Steven Osborne, piano
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Kirill Karabits, conductor

In Turangalîla, named from two Sanskrit words, turanga and lîla, meaning roughly 'time' and 'love', Messiaen wanted to create a "love song and hymn of joy, time, movement, rhythm, life, and death." This inventive piece is like no other - a work of huge structural scope that strives to convey, from most tender to most wild, its basic theme: love.

By contrast, written in a single month, Bizet's polished gem of a symphony is remarkable not so much for its originality, but for its skilful reworking of others' designs. It is a brilliant work that shows a grasp of unity and overall design that was remarkable for a seventeen-year old composer.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b096hz0x)
Alan Hollinghurst

Alan Hollinghurst talks to Anne McElvoy and a Proms Extra audience about his new novel The Sparsholt Affair, which traces a family and changing attitudes to sexuality across generations.

Recorded last month as a Proms Extra event with an audience at Imperial College.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b096hz0z)
Stuff Happens, Decluttering

Decluttering is all the rage, as many of us are weighed down by stuff. Joanna Robertson lives in Paris, where apartments are small. So how do they go about getting rid of their clutter? Or do they?

In her previous series for The Essay, Joanna took us to some of the international cities she's lived in and told us the Shopping News. Now, she takes on the consequences. Stuff Happens - not just to shopaholics but to all of us. It's the seemingly inescapable curse of 21st century consumerism - however hard we try to resist.

In this programme, Joanna finds out about Parisians' solutions for having too much stuff - and they aren't what you might think.

Producer: Arlene Gregorius.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b096hz11)
Fiona Talkington

If you haven't heard a vaporwave 'dream installation' before, tonight's your chance as Fiona shares the work of producer HKE. Dreamscapes were one of the signatures of Andrei Tarkovsky and there's music by pianist François Couturier, whose chamber-jazz quartet is devoted to the Soviet film-maker.

Plus, a selection from Veronica Doubleday's 1970s tapes of female musicians from Herat, Afghanistan; and a new release from Christophe Guiraud that combines medieval instruments with electronics.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07pj85d)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), Toothache and Marriage

Donald Macleod explores the Mendelssohn's honeymoon sketchbook. Including the Violin Concerto in E minor.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Pictures of long climbs, sight seeing trips, even the tooth that Felix's new wife Cäcilie had to have drawn, are all charmingly recorded in the Mendelssohn's honeymoon diary, plus one of the few watercolour paintings done by Mendelssohn, detailing the vegetable market at The Hague.

You can see sketches and drawings featured in this week's programme on the Radio 3 website.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b097tc1r)
Thursday - Opera matinee: Handel's Rinaldo

Penny Gore presents a recording of Handel's Rinaldo conducted by Christopher Hogwood.

The first opera written by Handel for the London stage, the work borrows and adapts works he composed during his recent years spent in Italy. Set in Jerusalem at the time of the First Crusade, the plot concerns the kidnapping of Rinaldo's lover, Almirena, by the sorceress, Armida, Queen of Damascus. A great success at its premiere in 1711, the opera features a succession of beautiful arias such as Almirena's "Lascia ch'io pianga". David Daniels takes the title role, with an acclaimed cast including Cecilia Bartoli, Gerald Finley, and Bernarda Fink.

Goffredo ..... Bernarda Fink (mezzo-soprano)
Almirena ..... Cecilia Bartoli (soprano)

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b096vdq9)
CBSO: Weber, Mozart and Brahms

Tom Redmond presents a programme of Weber, Mozart, Widmann and Brahms given by the CBSO, conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla and clarinettist Jörg Widmann from Symphony Hall Birmingham.

Brahms grappled with his First Symphony - and the weight of music history - for well over ten years. But he needn't have worried. From the pounding heartbeats of the opening, to the roof-raiser of a peroration, it's really no wonder it was instantly dubbed "Beethoven's Tenth". Tonight's concert also gives the opportunity to hear Artist in Residence Jörg Widmann in two musical guises: as soloist in Mozart's valedictory Clarinet Concerto (about which Mozart wrote "I smoked a glorious pipe of tobacco. Then I orchestrated almost the entire Rondo..."), then as maverick composer in the "linguistic confusion" of his Babylon-Suite. And to open, the overture to Weber's masterpiece of Romantic opera, Der Freischütz.

Mozart: Clarinet Concerto in A K.622

Producer: Torquil MacLeod.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b096j27q)
Stuff Happens, Books and Letters

Many people feel they're drowning in stuff, and try to declutter. Joanna Robertson is one of them. And in the fourth part of her series on "stuff", she finds that trying to get rid of books and personal letters is a whole other story. What to do with books brought home from faraway places, and with previously-treasured love letters?
Producer: Arlene Gregorius.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b096j27s)
Juana Molina, Matias Aguayo, Tom Skinner

Fiona Talkington shares the next Late Junction collaboration session, featuring Juana Molina, Matias Aguayo and Tom Skinner.

Argentinian singer-songwriter Juana Molina became a household name in her native country as a TV comedy actress, but these days channels her energy into a brand of experimental folktronica founded on loops and her eery, often wordless vocals.

German-based producer and DJ Matias Aguayo is a fellow looper but brings a more percussive, clubbier sound into the mix, and they're joined in the studio at BBC's Maida Vale by British drummer Tom Skinner, best known for his work with Sons of Kemet and Melt Yourself Down.

Also in the show, some forays into the archives with 1930s jazz singer Mildred Bailey, and composer and performance artist Charlemagne Palestine.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b07pj85g)
Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), High Society

Donald Macleod assesses Mendelssohn's abilities as a portraitist, including excerpts from the London version of the Scottish Symphony and the Opus 44 Piano Trio.

Few of us can readily lay claim to the descriptions polymath and polyglot. Felix Mendelssohn could. A child prodigy, likened by his contemporaries to Mozart, he was an accomplished composer, performer, conductor and musicologist. Beyond music, Mendelssohn was extremely knowledgeable about poetry, classical studies, theology, languages, painting and drawing. Indeed, he enjoyed art so much he continued to produce sketches, drawings and paintings as a pastime almost to the very end of his life. While he died aged only 38 in 1847, in addition to manuscripts, a considerable collection of his artwork has been preserved.

The biggest collection of Mendelssohn's biographical archive resides in the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries. This week, with Mendelssohn expert Peter Ward Jones as his guide, Donald Macleod opens up Mendelssohn's sketchbooks to find out what captured the composer's imagination alongside music.

Given the number of Mendelssohn's sketches, drawings and paintings, it's perhaps surprising that there aren't more portraits. In fact Mendelssohn, brilliant as he was, had an area which he perceived as being weak. He felt he wasn't good at drawing people. You can judge for yourself as Mendelssohn's sketch of a boy is available on the Radio 3 website along with some of the others featured in this week's programmes.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b096vf91)
Royal Northern Sinfonia playing Britten, Bach and Mendelssohn

Adam Tomlinson presents the Royal Northern Sinfonia, directed by Bradley Creswick, with violinist Kyra Humphreys playing Britten, Bach and Mendelssohn at Sage Gateshead. Britten's Op.1 was written whilst a composition student of John Ireland at the Royal College of Music. It's an astonishingly assured debut for an 18 year old: in spite the hostility of the College to the radicalism of the Second Viennese School - Britten was prevented from studying with Berg in 1934 - the influence of Schoenberg is clear. In contrast, Mendelssohn's youthful Symphony No 1 looks back - Mozart a huge influence on the then-15 year old. And further, to the contrapuntalism of JS Bach, whose Concerto for 2 Violins - fittingly written for two principle orchestral violinists - also bridges the centuries as the basis of Vaughan Williams' relatively neglected Violin Concerto. And in between, a contribution to the nascent Sinfonia genre by Wilhelm Friedmann Bach, eldest (and reputedly both favourite and most talented) child of dad Johann Sebastian.

Britten: Sinfonietta, Op.1
Vaughan Williams: Violin Concerto in D minor (Accademico)
JS Bach: Double Violin Concerto in D minr, BWV 1043
WF Bach: Sinfonia in D minor
Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op 11

Producer: Faith Lawrence.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b096j8wy)
Stuff Happens, My Mother's House

How do you deal with a house worth of "stuff" when the family home needs to be cleared after the death of your mother? And when you're living in a small flat that has little room for heirlooms?
While in the depths of grief, and faced with difficult decisions about what to do with everything, Joanna Robertson ponders the true meaning of things once their beloved owner has gone. Apart from their obvious sentimental value, do these objects provide us with a deeper connection to our history and identity? Or are they just "stuff" to get rid of?


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b096j8x0)
Amadou and Mariam

Kathryn Tickell presents a specially recorded session by the Malian duo Amadou and Mariam, performing material from their new album La Confusion. Plus the usual round-up of new releases from across the globe, including an interview with Joe Boyd and Andrea Goertler, co-producers of At Least Wave Your Handkerchief At Me, a new collection of traditional songs from Southern Albania, recorded by the group Saz'iso.

Amadou and Mariam are one of Mali's best known and most celebrated artists. Their career stretches back to the days of the Bamako scene of the 1970s but they have gone onto receive international recognition through a string of awards and high-profile collaborations with the likes of Manu Chao, Damon Albarn, Santigold and David Gilmour, charting a course through traditional Malian music, indie rock and dance.

Saz'iso is the coming together of legendary producer Joe Boyd, (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake), sound engineer Jerry Boys (Buena Vista Social Club), Albanian music experts (and co-producers of the record) Edit Pula and Andrea Goertler, and the virtuosic singers and musicians of the Saz'iso collective, who specialise in the unique iso-polyphonic saze style of Southern Albania.
