SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09g3btg)
Bernard Haitink, Nico Muhly's Marnie, Simon Keenlyside and Zenaida Yanowsky

Presented by Tom Service.

Tom meets the celebrated conductor Bernard Haitink who talks about how conducting is a strange profession, the differences between his many orchestras and despite 6 decades at the very top of his game admits he still gets nervous before rehearsals. He also shows Tom round his treasured wall of composer letters and autographs - a treasury that's built up as his wife, Patricia, finds a new one for his birthday each year.

Tom also talks to the baritone Simon Keenlyside and ballet dancer Zenaida Yanowsky about their shared life in music and dance. They talk about the similarities between the worlds of opera and dance, how their childhoods have shaped their careers and why they don't want their children to grow up to be singers or dancers.

And we preview 'Marnie' the new opera by the American composer Nico Muhly opening at English National Opera. Based on a Winston Graham novel, it follows a kleptomaniac with multiple identities, a hidden past, and a set of disturbing relationships. Tom talks to Nico about how he went about writing it - and speaks to two of its stars, Sasha Cooke and Daniel Okulitch.

As part of Breaking Free: a Century of Russian culture, Martin Handley introduces a performance of Tchaikovsky's the Maid of Orleans, recorded earlier this year in the Victoria Hall, Geneva with mezzo Ksenia Dudnikova in the title role and conducted by Dmitri Jurowski.
After Eugene Onegin, Tchaikovsky turned from Russian subjects and set an adaptation of Schiller's The Maid of Orleans. Written while he was in Europe, it follows more in the style of French Grand opera, notably with the inclusion of a ballet in Act 2, and was the first of Tchaikovsky's operas to be
performed outside Russia.
Martin is joined in the studio by Marina Frolova-Walker to discuss Tchaikovsky's more cosmopolitan style in this opera.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b09fm718)
Between the Ears: The Plot for Karl Marx

Karl Marx's penultimate journey was as a corpse in a coffin being trundled up the very steep hill of Highgate to what should have been his last resting place - a three-guinea plot in Highgate's East Cemetery - in March 1883, buried alongside his wife Jenny von Westphalen. The next year a memorial procession to his grave was turned away, but ever since then the Socialist world and the curious began to beat a path to his grave site. But then, in 1954, they dug Karl Marx up and turned him into an icon in bronze. Karl Marx, wife Jenny, grandson and housekeeper (who were also buried in the same original plot) were re-interred in a new spot. Exactly 73 years after Karl Marx's death, the famous Marx headstone, sculpted by Laurence Bradshaw, was unveiled on March 14th 1956. Wrote Bradshaw, 'I felt some of the feelings that the old architects of ancient Egypt must have felt when raising a monument of theirs to their heroes, for they had to build on sand, and we had to build on clay and gravel, two rather treacherous substances. Also as a person who has been involved for some troubled time in the socialist movement, I felt there were bound to be some attacks on this tomb'

Ever since its unveiling, the Marx memorial has attracted a never-ending flow of people, although as Bradshaw predicted the great bronze head has suffered its ignominies, including an attempt by the far right to blow it to pieces. Alan Dein follows the journey Marx made from death to bronze icon and also travels to Chemnitz, aka Karl Marx Stadt, in the former DDR. Here the largest head of Marx in the world stares out across the town square. Once a symbol of East Germany's unofficial capital - now a tourist magnet and a source of unexpected stories.

As part of Radio 3's coverage of the London Jazz Festival, Michael Berkeley talks to the saxophonist and bass clarinettist John Surman, who over a career of dizzying versatility that spans more than fifty years, has shown us just how many different ways jazz can be made. Surman's hundreds of recordings include solos with synthesizers, saxophone trios, trios with voice and drums, with brass bands and big bands. He has made albums with church choirs, duos with church organs and with drums, as well as composing music for saxophone and string quartet.

He has worked with most of the jazz greats of the last half century, including Ronnie Scott, Alexis Korner and Gil Evans, and more unusually for a jazz musician he's worked at the Paris Opera, with the Trans4mation Quartet, and on modern reinterpretations of the songs of John Dowland. He's been the recipient of numerous awards including the 2017 Ivor Novello Jazz Award.

In Private Passions, John Surman tells Michael how his love for music began in his childhood in Devon, when he was a talented boy treble. He chooses Bach's St Matthew Passion, which he first heard in a Plymouth church, and Beethoven's "Pathétique" sonata (No 8, in C minor), which his father would play on the piano. Surman's love of jazz is entwined with his love of classical music, and among his musical passions Duke Ellington and Miles Davis go hand-in-hand with Bartok's Concerto for Orchestra and the voice of Kathleen Ferrier. Happily based in Norway for the last decade, Surman has chosen a music list to help him through the long dark Scandinavian winters.

Tom Service invites you to take stroll around a rogues' gallery of musical musical fakers, from the perpetrators of innocent pranks, to calculating fraudsters' deliberate deceptions.

How can aesthetic value shift when work, once thought to be by a musical giant, is discovered to be a forgery or a by a much lesser figure? To help answer these and other questions, Tom is joined by Frances Christie, Sotheby's Head of Modern British Art, and author of An Incomplete History of the Art of Funerary Violin, Rohan Kriwaczek.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09fmkh5)
Resurrecting Mayakovsky

Vladimir Mayakovsky was THE poet of the Russian Revolution.

A revolutionary in his personal life as well as in his art, Mayakovsky sought to overthrow traditional practices and became the spokesperson for a radical new society. But the tensions and demands of speaking on behalf of the state would take its toll. In 1930 a nation went into mourning when Mayakovsky took a pistol and shot himself through the heart.

Ian Sansom has been reading Mayakovsky since he was a teenager, inspired by Mayakovsky's uncompromising example as a total artist, prepared to sacrifice everything for his vision.

Ian travels to Mayakovsky's birthplace in Georgia and speaks to poets, translators and academics who are seeking to keep Mayakovsky's legacy alive. With rare archive recordings of Mayakovsky reading his own work, a Russian Futurist soundtrack from the period and on-location recordings from Moscow, Georgia and London, Ian attempts to resurrect the spirit of Mayakovsky.

Producer: Conor Garrett.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b074z976)
The News from Home

The News from Home was written by Nick Dear to mark the centenary of the Easter Rising in Dublin.

The play views the events of Easter Week 1916 and its aftermath through the eyes of Kitty and Nora, maidservants of an English country house, tucked away in the New Forest. Kitty and Nora come from Roscrea, Tipperary, and have always thought of themselves as British citizens, but their views change as they learn that there has been an armed insurrection in their homeland, and for a few days, as news trickles in, it seems just possible that the nascent Irish Republic may succeed. Overnight the girls become thought of as Irish, not British, and potentially in league with the German enemy.

Desperately Seeking Eternity, Desperately Seeking Eternity: Mona Siddiqui

All the established religions teach some form of existence after life, from concepts of heaven and hell to theories of reincarnation. Common to all is the principle that good or bad actions in this life will have repercussions after death.

But how relevant are these theories of the afterlife to the world we live in now? New developments in science, philosophy and technology threaten to undermine our traditional ideas of eternity - and even threaten to render them obsolete. In this series, five writers set out to explore ideas of eternity, infinity and the afterlife from fresh viewpoints. Does our insistence on measuring and categorising time serve to make eternity even more unknowable? What can the principles of mathematics tell us about the tricky subject of infinity? How would people feel about eternity if they could live to be 200 years old?

Muslim theologian Mona Siddiqui writes that the prospect of immortality, for all its theological grandeur, is too abstract to offer much tangible consolation to the living. So why do so many of us continue to invest our hopes in it?

This is the first in a series of four Lunchtime concerts recorded at this year's Lammermuir Festival, which hosts recitals across the picturesque county of East Lothian on the east coast of Scotland. In today's concert, The Hebrides Ensemble perform Schubert's Octet in the beautiful setting of the 17th-century Dirleton Kirk. Schubert's Octet is his largest chamber work and ranges in style from symphonic grandeur to light-footed playfulness and comes from the same period as his other major chamber works, the 'Rosamunde' and 'Death and the Maiden' string quartets.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0745dyd)
Desperately Seeking Eternity, Desperately Seeking Eternity: Anders Sandberg

All the established religions teach some form of existence after life, from concepts of heaven and hell to theories of reincarnation. Common to all is the principle that good or bad actions in this life will have repercussions after death.

But how relevant are these theories of the afterlife to the world we live in now? New developments in science, philosophy and technology threaten to undermine our traditional ideas of eternity - and even threaten to render them obsolete. In this series, five writers set out to explore ideas of eternity, infinity and the afterlife from fresh viewpoints. Does our insistence on measuring and categorising time serve to make eternity even more unknowable? What can the principles of mathematics tell us about the tricky subject of infinity? How would people feel about eternity if they could live to be 200 years old?

Anders Sandberg of the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University is a transhumanist. He researches the potential benefits and drawbacks - both physical and ethical - of new technologies that could transform human life. He argues that ageing and mortality may be transformed by future technology, with big effects on our society. How would this affect our outlook on life, and on the afterlife?

TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b09fnz6y)
Fiona Talkington

In 2005 the conceptual artist and avant-garde pop musician Bill Drummond launched 'No Music Day', as an event to be marked every year on the 21st of November. The event, which falls the day before the feast of patron saint of music Saint Cecilia, aims to draw attention to the cheapening of music as an art form due to its ubiquitous use in contemporary society. On this day, Drummond decreed, one should listen to no music whatsoever, and instead reflect on what we want and don't want from music in general.

As Late Junction is a music radio programme, we are contractually obliged to play at least some songs, so Fiona will instead mark 'No Music Day' by exploring the spaces where sound, silence and music meet. Hear sonic experiments from Sontag Shogun, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Matt Rogalsky, Milan Knizak, and more.

Other featured artists on the night include the cellist Okkyung Lee, solo bassist Steve Lawson, and singer-songwriter Ane Brun.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.

Lammermuir Festival 2017, Lammermuir Festival, 2017

Period instrument specialists, Quatuor Mosaïques, perform two string quartets in the unique 'arts and crafts' setting of Chalmers Memorial Church. The church, with its carved timbers and elaborate stencil work, sits in the small fishing village of Port Seton and is one of the many picturesque venues used during this year's Lammermuir Festival in East Lothian. Mozart's String Quartet in G major, K387, was the first of a series of six that Mozart would eventually dedicate to Haydn. The responsibility of creating a work worthy of such a dedication was revealed in Mozart's inscription on the published works that they were 'the fruit of long and laborious endeavour'. Donizetti's operatic works overshadow his rarely heard quartets, so it seems fitting that the second work that Quatuor Mosaïques perform at the Lammermuir Festival should be one that was written in 1836, a year after the premiere of his tragic opera 'Lucia di Lammermoor'.

Wednesday - BBC Philharmonic LIVE from Salford

Stuart Flinders presents a live concert from the BBC Philharmonic at MediaCityUK in Salford, featuring music by Lyadov, Sofia Gubaidulina, Ravel and Ibert. Our live 2pm Concert opens with a 'fantastic scherzo', Kikimora, a tone poem by Lyadov depicting witches. Kikimora takes its inspiration, and name, from a legendary female figure of Slavic folklore. The dark and moody orchestral colours make this piece both mesmerisingly menacing and harmonically haunting. Sofia Gubaidulina's powerful 1996 Viola Concerto will be performed today by former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Lawrence Power, before a visit to Spain for Ravel's colourful Rapsodie espagnole. Closing this afternoon's live broadcast, and continuing the theme of sunny climes, is Ibert's Escales ('Ports of Call'). Imagine a cruise round the Mediterranean, stopping off at Palermo, Rome, Tunis and Valencia ...

WED 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b09fyzkl)

In this concert from the London Philharmonic Orchestra's season 'Belief and Beyond Belief: Rituals and Seasons' English summer is paired with Russian winter.

No premonitions of the impending catastrophe of World War I disturb the very English pastoral mood of Frank Bridge's rarely heard 1914 'Summer', an evocative and sophisticated ten-minute tone poem. With his First Symphony 'Winter Daydreams', the 26-year-old Tchaikovsky rejected the model of Beethovenian symphonic form for a highly personal, Russian style, a decision which served him well over the course of five further symphonies. In between the Bridge and Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev's witty, glittering 1921 Third Piano Concerto is played by the young, acclaimed and award-winning Beatrice Rana.

Presented by Martin Handley at the Royal Festival Hall.

Lammermuir Festival 2017, Lammermuir Festival, 2017: Alban Gerhardt and Steven Osborne

Today's Lammermuir Festival recital comes from the the coastal town of Dunbar in East Lothian. German cellist Alban Gerhardt and Scottish pianist Steven Osborne play cello sonatas by Beethoven and Brahms in the beautifully refurbished Dunbar Parish Church. The Cello Sonata in D major, Op 102 No 2, is the last of five sonatas that Beethoven penned and was written in 1815, at the start of his 'late period' of creativity. It contains the only full-length slow movement in his five sonatas and is arguably the most beautiful movement ever written for cello and piano. Brahms composed three movements of his E minor Cello Sonata in 1862 and, after removing the adagio, he added the final movement three years later. Brahms creates a exquisitely balanced partnership between the instruments as the piano acts as a "watchful and considerate partner" to the rich tones of the cello.

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b09fpc7n)
Thursday - Opera matinee: Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia

Georgia Mann presents a concert performance of Donizetti's Lucrezia Borgia from this year's Salzburg Festival.

Set in 16th-century Venice and Ferrara, the opera tells the tale of the young nobleman Don Gennaro's encounter with one of the most infamous and deadly women of the Italian Renaissance, Lucrezia Borgia. Premiered at La Scala, Milan on 26th December 1833, and based on a play by Victor Hugo, Donizetti's opera captures the intrigue, passion and jealousy of an aristocratic dynasty tested by the arrival of a young and honest man brought up as the son of a lowly fisherman. Krassimira Stoyanova sings the title role, with Juan Diego Florez as Gennaro, and Ildar Abdrazakov as her husband, Don Alfonso D'Este, Duke of Ferrara. Then it's back to this week's featured orchestra, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, for music by Dvorak.

Orchestra of Welsh National Opera: Mahler, Shostakovich

Live from St David's Hall, Cardiff.
Welsh National Opera Music Director Tomáš Hanus conducts Shostakovich's powerful and imposing Leningrad Symphony with the WNO Orchestra.

Shostakovich: Symphony No 7 (Leningrad)

Tara Erraught, mezzo soprano
Orchestra of Welsh National Opera
Tomáš Hanus, conductor

German romanticism and a lyric sensibility rub shoulders in four richly-scored and moving songs by Gustav Mahler. By sharp contrast, Shostakovich's Seventh Symphony resonates with the rhythms of war. The 'Leningrad' became a symbol of Russian defiance when in August 1942 a half-starved and heroic orchestra played it through loudspeakers to the surrounding German forces in one of the deadliest sieges in history.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b0745dyn)
Desperately Seeking Eternity, Desperately Seeking Eternity: Lucy Winkett

All the established religions teach some form of existence after life, from concepts of heaven and hell to theories of reincarnation. Common to all is the principle that good or bad actions in this life will have repercussions after death.

But how relevant are these theories of the afterlife to the world we live in now? New developments in science, philosophy and technology threaten to undermine our traditional ideas of eternity - and even threaten to render them obsolete. In this series, five writers set out to explore ideas of eternity, infinity and the afterlife from fresh viewpoints. Does our insistence on measuring and categorising time serve to make eternity even more unknowable? What can the principles of mathematics tell us about the tricky subject of infinity? How would people feel about eternity if they could live to be 200 years old?

Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James's Church, Piccadilly, is a writer, broadcaster and former professional soprano. She argues that if eternity is already happening, all our efforts to give it a shape and momentum are temporary and ultimately rather futile. Does living with the recognition of eternity change the way we live now?

Thelonious Monk (1917-1982), Album focus - Underground

Today, presenter Donald Macleod and guest Brian Priestley conclude their celebration the centenary of jazz legend Thelonious Monk with a focus on a single album, Underground. It's a classic, regularly appearing in lists of 'must-have' jazz albums. Released in 1968, at a time of profound civic unrest and upheaval in the USA, the record immediately draws attention to itself through its uncompromising sleeve, which casts Monk in the role of jazz renegade freedom fighter. The music, while evincing Monk's trademark idiosyncrasy and visionary individuality, is far from agitprop, featuring a wide range of touching and colourful biographical portraits.

Halle, Wigglesworth: Mozart, Mahler

Sublime visions of love and paradise by Mozart and Mahler, given by the Hallé orchestra, soprano Joanne Lunn and conductor Ryan Wigglesworth in Manchester, presented by Stuart Flinders.

London-born operatic soprano Anna Selina ("Nancy") Storace's farewell concert in Vienna was the inspiration for Mozart's aria Ch'io mi scordi di te' ('Should I forget you'). One of music's greatest paeans to love, Mozart scholar Alfred Einstein noted that he "poured into it his whole soul... We have the impression that Mozart wanted to preserve the memory of [Nancy's] voice... and... the depth of his feeling for her..." The stage also influenced the forward-looking Symphony No 34, with its glimpses of opera buffa and tender lyricism.

Mahler was also a man of the theatre, spending much of his 30-year career conducting in the opera house. His symphonies often burst into song, and it is one small verse, "Das himmlische Leben" (Heavenly life), which was the starting point for his Fourth. Mozart, creepy folklore and eternal sleep inspire the journey towards a child's vision of heaven, replete with bread baked by angels and plentiful sweets.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b09fz34n)
The Verb Celebrates 35 Years of Spoken Word

Ian McMillan presents a special extended edition of Radio 3's The Verb recorded as part of Contains Strong Language, a season of poetry and performance from Hull, UK City of Culture 2017.

Ian McMillan is joined by a host of spoken word talent to celebrate the story of spoken-word performance in the UK on the 35th anniversary of 'Apples and Snakes'.

John Agard has been performing spoken word across the UK for over 30 years. His poem celebrates the Voice as he reminds us that 'Shakespeare was a performance poet'. Hannah Silva is an innovative playwright and performer, who presents a brand new poem. In this piece, specially commissioned by Apples and Snakes to celebrate their 35th anniversary, Hannah digs around in their archives to find poetic inspiration.

The Verb has also commissioned new work, a collaborative piece by SLAMbassadors UK founder Joelle Taylor and Zena Edwards. 'I remember you' examines the political history of spoken word. We also hear from Grace Nichols who brings a carnival spirit to the proceedings, Yomi Sode who takes us back to his awkward teenage years, and Dizraeli reads brand new work addressing toxic masculinity.

Apples and Snakes have also commissioned collaborative work from London based poet and grime artist Debris Stevenson and Hull's very own breakout grime star Chiedu Oraka.

John Hegley's first public performance was in Hull many years ago, so it's only fitting that he returns to the city to celebrate the birthday of Apples and Snakes, who have been an important part of his career for the past 35 years.

And there were so many fantastic performances at this Contains Strong Language event that we couldn't fit them all into the broadcast edition of the show, download our podcast to hear extra performances from all our guests and an extra podcast only appearance from poet and rapper TY and a brand new collaboration, commissioned by Apples and Snakes between Yomi Sode and Dizraeli.
