9.30am
Building a Library: Katy Hamilton explores Brahms's Third String Quartet in B flat major, Op 67. Brahms composed this quartet 1875 and dedicated it to a cellist friend, even though the cellist is the one instrument that doesn't get a prominent solo in the work. The work is composed in a lighter vein than we sometimes associate with Brahms's chamber works; he described it as "a useless trifle, to avoid facing the serious countenance of a symphony", by which he meant work on his First Symphony, which was premiered a week later.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09gfchz)
Huddersfield

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch.

As the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, hcmf//, celebrates its 40th edition, Sara takes a snapshot of musical life in the West Yorkshire town.

Sara meets one of the festival's featured composers, the Canadian-based Linda Catlin Smith, who since listening to records in her childhood has been inspired by the emotional depth of slow music. She also takes stock of the current debate around gender, ethnic and social diversity in new music, with delegates visiting hcmf// and its artistic director, Graham McKenzie, and finds out about the Yorkshire Sound Women Network set up by Liz Dobson at Huddersfield University.

To place the festival in context and explore some of the wider music-making in the Huddersfield area, Sara travels a couple of miles out of town, to the Colne Valley home of local folk duo O'Hooley and Tidow. She also visits Hoot Creative Arts, a local music and health charity whose projects have included making new music for string quartet with dementia sufferers and their carers, and hears what Kirklees Council is doing to boost creativity and local engagement with music.

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b09gfcj9)
Cherubini's Medea from Wexford Festival Opera

Recorded at Wexford Festival Opera 2017, Sean Rafferty introduces a new production by Fiona Shaw of Luigi Cherubini's Medea with Lise Davidsen (soprano) in the title role and Sergey Romanovsky (tenor) as Jason.

Medea is a notorious figure from Greek mythology, a sorceress with blood on her hands. She has already killed her brother to help Jason, the legendary Argonaut, steal the Golden Fleece. Jason promised he would never leave her but, as the plot unfolds and the tension builds, it becomes all too apparent that Jason will not remain true to his word and the consequences are utterly horrifying. Medea is a drama of raw passion and brutal violence - the title role, made famous by Maria Callas, demands an exceptional voice as well as extraordinary dramatic talent.

Medea, first performed at the Théâtre Feydeau in Paris, 13 March 1797, is an opéra comique in three acts with libretto by François Benoit Hoffman (Italian version by Carlo Zangarini), based on Euripides' tragedy of Medea and Pierre Corneille's play Médée, and is sung in Italian.

During the interval Sean's guests include tonight's director, Fiona Shaw who has famously played the title role in Euripides' 'Medea' in the West End and on Broadway; tonight's conductor, Stephen Barlow; and the writer, Colm Tóibín, who hails from Co. Wexford and whose most recent novel deals with the psychology of Greek tragedy.

Medea ..... Lise Davidsen (soprano)
Glauce ..... Ruth Iniesta (soprano)
Neris ..... Raffaella Lupinacci (mezzo-soprano)
Jason ..... Sergey Romanovsky (tenor)
King Creon ..... Adam Lau (bass)
Chorus and Orchestra of Wexford Festival Opera
Stephen Barlow (conductor).


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b0739ndm)
The Three Second Rule

The three second rule - once more like folklore or hearsay - has been discovered to be the happiest condition for the human brain.

In this imaginative journey through the synapses a work, rest and play - Susan Aldworth, Artist in Residence at York University, slips inside a scanner, under the suprvision of neuroscientists Professor Miles Whittington, and Dr Fiona LeBeau, who she has been working with on a project exploring sleep, to discover whether paying heed to the three second rhythm of the mind can help us work rest and play.

By the time you finish this sentence you will have made up your mind.
You don't know it yet but the three second rule governs your life.
There is a brain pulse, a sequence of internal events that repeats every three seconds.
This also applies to poems and music, even Beethoven's Fifth.
The repetition of phrases three seconds long is easily grasped.
Sentence interpretation is also best understood at three seconds.
It seems that the rule applies also when we are chilling out.
We turn our thoughts inside as we daydream away.

Whether we are choosing a lover,
Reading a poem, painting a picture, or singing,
It seems that maybe we all operate this way.
Our attention span working in bursts of time.
In this programme we will hear a brain working.
mixed with the musings of actor Michelle Newell,
We will build up a sound world of three second pulses.
Get a rhythm of irresistible beats going in the listener.
In the brain of Susan Aldworth, artist and printmaker.
With the mind of Simon Townley, musician and composer,
The wiles of dating coach Shaun (aka Discovery), and
Professor Miles Whitingdon, Dr Fiona LeBeau, Dr Kai Alter.

If you've made your mind up to listen by now, I hope you choose well.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall.

Sunday - Martin Handley

SUN 09:00 Sacred River (b09gffgr)

Neil MacGregor introduces a special presenter-less celebration of the spiritual side of life that so many encounter through music, no matter what their faith or tradition. Linked to Neil's 'Living with the Gods' (Radio 4) this is a seamless "slow radio" flow, the music - spanning all periods - leads listeners through major themes of religion and belief, encompassing the whole gamut of human experience of the divine to take a broad view of what it is to believe. The programme begins with the wonders of creation and the cosmos, and as darkness is dispelled the theme of light emerges, a significant element of many belief systems. This leads into music inspired by nature and the world around us. From there the pieces chosen (mainly from the Western tradition, but encompassing many world faiths) explore the concept of love from the perspective of the sacred before turning the focus to ritual, the prayerful, contemplative and meditative part of the human condition - as well as the joyous and ecstatic.

Finally, thoughts turn to life, death and eternity with music that explores transience, mortality and beliefs about the world to come. Peppered throughout the day, listeners will hear the sacred sounds of a range of world religions, in carefully curated vignettes, opening up the intimate and personal world of belief.

Producers: Katharine Longworth, Ben Collingwood and Rosie Dawson.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b07jhvgp)
Chasing a Fugue

Tom Service looks at music in flight - the miraculous musical form that is the fugue, where melodies chase each other, work against each other and come together in a supremely logical and often exhilarating fusion. How does it work, why is it important and can we learn to love the fugue in the 21st century? Tom tries his hand at playing Bach's Fugue in C minor from Book 1 of the Well-Tempered Clavier, a challenge to many a piano exam student, gets tips on tackling fugues from virtuoso harpsichord player Mahan Esfahani, and comes across a very contemporary take on the art of learning about fugue. Lady Gaga is involved...

Kandinsky - A Story of Revolution

Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky was a pioneer of abstract painting and one of the most influential figures in modern art. Born in Moscow 150 years ago, Kandinsky's life and art was heavily informed by the 1917 Russian Revolution and the chaos and social upheaval across Europe during the early 20th century. Part of Radio 3's Breaking Free 2017 season, exploring the cultural impact of revolutionary change.

In this programme, Christian Weikop, Chancellor's Fellow in History of Art at the University of Edinburgh, examines Kandinsky's Russian roots. In Moscow we visit Lomonosov State University, where artists were preparing an exhibition to celebrate Kandinsky's 150th anniversary in December. The exhibition's curator, Dr Sergey Dzikevitch, also takes us inside the apartment block in central Moscow where Kandinsky lived and worked.

We meet Elena Preis - Kandinsky's grandniece and a celebrated artist in her own right - and her grandniece Alexandra. Kandinsky's sense of Russianness was deeply important to him - his break with traditional realistic painting, in favour of a radical new style, was influenced by his attachment to Russian peasant art, iconography, and woodcuts. Moreover, the colours and architecture of Moscow left an indelible imprint on his psyche - wherever he was, Kandinsky dreamed of painting the city's sunsets and gilded onion domes.

After establishing himself in the early 1900s as a leader of experimental art in Munich, Kandinsky was forced to flee Germany at the outbreak of the First World War. He returned to a Russia on the brink of revolution, later writing that he watched the October 1917 uprising from his Moscow studio window. Initially, Kandinsky was instrumental in reorganising the arts, but left to teach at the famous Bauhaus art school in Weimar. He was forced to flee Germany again in 1933 when the school was shut down by the Nazis. Kandinsky died in Paris in 1944.

Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller

David Suchet, Zoë Wanamaker and director Howard Davies, who all won awards for the sell-out production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons in the West End in 2010, reunite to create a new production for Radio 3 of Miller's 1949 classic about the American dream and his second big Broadway success. The original won The Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award and Critics' Circle Award for Best Play. This new radio production is part of the celebrations across BBC Radio 3, 4 and 4 Extra to mark the centenary of the birth of one of the most important American playwrights of the twentieth century.

Willy Loman is a 63-year-old travelling salesman worn out by a life on the road. His wife Linda has supported him throughout and borne him two sons, Biff and Happy. Biff is working away and has returned home for the first time in years, so the whole family are reunited. But there is a secret between Willy and Biff, which has destroyed what was a mutual hero-worshipping relationship when Biff was a star athlete in High School, and still haunts them both.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01nj800)
Charles Koechlin (1867-1950), Episode 1

The music of Charles Koechlin (1867-1950) is elegant, witty and immediately engaging and appealing - the 'missing link', musically, between Debussy, Satie and Poulenc (whom he all knew). And yet...it's fallen curiously out of favour. This week, Donald Macleod lifts the lid on an extraordinary musician (with an extraordinary beard): a free-thinking pioneer whose array of interests included mountaineering, photography and Kipling's "The Jungle Book", who spent many of his later years obsessively composing works in tribute to a bevy of Hollywood starlets...A composer who began his musical life in the age of Gounod and Bizet...and ended in the age of Boulez and Stockhausen.

In the first episode of the week, Donald Macleod explores Koechlin's early vocal works, including two ravishing songs for soprano and orchestra...He also discusses the huge influence on Koechlin's music of "The Jungle Book", by Rudyard Kipling. Koechlin was fascinated by Kipling's stories, and composed five major works on themes from the book, that spanned his entire musical life. We'll be hearing them throughout the week, beginning today with Koechlin's "Three Poems", Opus 18.

More Letters to Writers, Dear Dante ...

'Dear Oscar Fingal O'Flaherty Wilde,

Do you mind if I just call you Oscar? It's just you always seemed so approachable yet ultimately unknowable...a bit like the Queen.'

Continuing his series of imaginary correspondences, Ian Sansom finds himself once again in the gutter, looking at the stars. As his dispatches to the world's great writers resume, he finds himself increasingly shocked by their decidedly frank answers.

'Dear Dante,

Did you really meant all that stuff about people being thrown into boiling pitch and tar..?'

In his on-going epistolary quest, Ian attempts to find out everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.

Why did Mary Shelley start so young? How did William Trevor keep going for so long? And what exactly is the significance of Marianne Moore's tricorn hat?

Producer: Conor Garrett.

More Letters to Writers, Dear Mary ...

'Dear Oscar Fingal O'Flaherty Wilde,

Do you mind if I just call you Oscar? It's just you always seemed so approachable yet ultimately unknowable ... a bit like the Queen.'

Continuing his series of imaginary correspondences, Ian Sansom finds himself once again in the gutter, looking at the stars. As his dispatches to the world's great writers resume, he finds himself increasingly shocked by their decidedly frank answers...

'Dear Dante,

Did you really meant all that stuff about people being thrown into boiling pitch and tar..?'

In his on-going epistolary quest, Ian attempts to find out everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.

Why did Mary Shelley start so young? How did William Trevor keep going for so long? And what exactly is the significance of Marianne Moore's tricorn hat?

Producer: Conor Garrett.

Verity Sharp with Derek Walmsley

The Wire editor Derek Walmsley is Verity's guest tonight, exploring how collectives are increasingly shaping the sounds of now.

Also in the show, there's music direct to your bloodstream as Verity shares industrial-strength bass music from producer and former Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris that, 'under the right circumstances', promises stampedes. You may also experience disorientation courtesy of American installation artist and composer Maryanne Amacher, who works with 'auditory distortion products', which generate sounds that appear to be coming from within our own ears.

We've balms to soothe as well - Yiorgos Kaloudis plays unaccompanied Bach on the Cretan lyra, and soulful 70s jazz from pianist Stanley Cowell.

Shostakovich: Symphony No 11 (The Year 1905)

Denis Kozhukhin (piano)
Alexander Vedernikov (conductor)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Alexander Vedernikov conducts the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in two Russian works from either side of revolutionary events.

"Every single beggar in the whole of Little Russia sings exactly the same tune..." wrote Tchaikovsky, and he pinched that Ur-melody for the first movement of his super-lyrical piano concerto of 1847. And Russian street-songs also feature, with greater irony, in Shostakovich's 11th Symphony.

As we mark the centenary of the 1917 Revolution we hear Shostakovich's reflections on the earlier 1905 political unrest in the Russian Empire. Writing amid the tentative de-Stalinization of the mid 1950s, and during a period of intense personal unhappiness, an increasingly garlanded Shostakovich offers a typically ambiguous and kaleidoscopic work: conceived as a popular piece, its alarm bells nevertheless ring out a sharp critique of violence, and abuses of dictatorial power.

FRIDAY 01 DECEMBER 2017

FRI 00:00 Late Junction (b09gdzjk)
Heather Phillipson's Late Junction Mixtape

British artist Heather Phillipson's work draws on video, sculpture, drawing and text, but also on spoken word - she's a published poet - and on music. This mixtape of some of her favourite tracks and field recordings reflects the spirit of collision and tonal shift that's present in her own creations - from English entertainer Arthur Askey to Peruvian-American exotica, via ragga DJ General Levy, and the sounds of farmyard chickens and bees in treetops.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01nj8cn)
Charles Koechlin (1867-1950), Episode 5

It's fitting that such a fiercely independent, free-thinking musical mind should compose for one of the strangest instruments of the 20th century - the early electronic instrument, the Ondes Martenot. Donald Macleod introduces Koechlin's "Towards The Sun" for solo Ondes - a work that both showcases the instrument's eerie, ethereal sound, and seems to capture the composer's own otherworldly temperament. He ends the week with two attractive late chamber works, plus the composer's last significant work for orchestra, "The Burning Bush".


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b09gygjp)
Mozart Dvorak and Piazzola accordion music from Riga

Ksenija Sidorova, 'the Accordion Princess,' is joined by the Spikeri Quartet at the Dzintari Hall in a concert they gave as part of Latvia's Jurmala Festival.
Beginning with a fiery fantasy, the programme moves through the classical elegance of late Mozart to the Bohemian-inspired Bagatelles of Dvorak, one of the composer's favourite compositions. The concert ends with the rich palette of emotions from the king of Tango, a cycle which encompasses the roads of sleep, love, awakening, anxiety and fear. Part of Radio 3's celebration of 50 years of the European Broadcasting Corporation's music exchange programme.
Presented by Ian Skelly.

BBC Philharmonic

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Ludovic Morlot give the world premiere of Arlene Sierra's 'Nature Symphony'. Jean-Efflam Bavouzet joins them for Bartok's First Piano Concerto.
Recorded at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Presented by Tom Redmond

Arlene Sierra: Nature Symphony (world premiere; BBC commission)
Bartok: Piano Concerto No 1

8.20: Music Interval

8.40
Dvorak: Symphony No 8

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC Philharmonic
Ludovic Morlot (conductor)

The music of American-born, London-based composer Arlene Sierra beautifully evokes the colour, detail and movement of the natural world and tonight's concert features the world premiere of a piece commissioned by the BBC Philharmonic, her 'Nature Symphony'. The nature theme that starts the concert is reflected in the symphony that ends the programme, Dvorak's Eighth; with its folk-inspired melody and moments of birdsong it is a pastoral symphony in all but name.
Flamboyant French pianist, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet joins the orchestra for Bartok's relentlessly virtuosic First Piano Concerto. So complicated to prepare with the orchestra that the premiere was postponed, the piano part, which Bartok wrote as a vehicle for himself as a performer is full of innovative new effects and timbres which create an entirely new sound-world.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b09gygjt)
How do you choose a mentor?

This week on The Verb we're looking at writing mentors. We're asking our guests who their early influences were and who inspired them and finding out how you go about choosing a mentor.

Joining Ian is the comedian Margaret Cho. Margaret is a groundbreaking American comic who has been Emmy and Grammy nominated five times, hosts the podcast 'Monsters of Talk' and is currently touring her latest stand up show 'Fresh Off The Boat'.

Tim Atack is a composer and sound designer who works across film, music and theatre.

This week Hollie McNish introduces us to the poetry of Rosy Carrick

Producer: Faith Lawrence.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b09gvgg5)
More Letters to Writers, Dear William ...

'Dear Oscar Fingal O'Flaherty Wilde,

Do you mind if I just call you Oscar? It's just you always seemed so approachable yet ultimately unknowable...a bit like the Queen.'

Continuing his series of imaginary correspondences, Ian Sansom finds himself once again in the gutter, looking at the stars. As his dispatches to the world's great writers resume, he finds himself increasingly shocked by their decidedly frank answers.

'Dear Dante,

Did you really meant all that stuff about people being thrown into boiling pitch and tar..?'

In his on-going epistolary quest, Ian attempts to find out everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.

Why did Mary Shelley start so young? How did William Trevor keep going for so long? And what exactly is the significance of Marianne Moore's tricorn hat?

Producer: Conor Garrett.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b09gdzjn)
9Bach in session

Kathryn Tickell presents a live studio session with Welsh alternative folk band 9Bach.

Formed in 2005 by singer-songwriter and pianist Lisa Jên and guitarist Martin Hoyland, 9Bach have release three albums on Peter Gabriel's Real World Records. Currently touring their third album, Anian ("nature"), they join us in the studio ahead of a special co-headline show (with the Moulettes) at Cadogan Hall on the 8th December. Their music is an atmospheric and evocative mix of Welsh folk tradition and contemporary influences.

And the name? Nothing to do with a certain baroque composer and in fact a play on words; 9 is as in Nain, (pronounced nine), which means grandmother in North Wales and 'Bach' means little and is a term of endearment in Welsh.
