Andrew talks to Harriet Smith about recent recordings of Alkan. Charles-Valentin Alkan was a French-Jewish composer and virtuoso pianist. A contemporary of Chopin and Liszt, his output was mainly for the piano, for which he wrote pieces requiring extraordinary virtuosity. And there is a persistent but apparently unfounded legend that his death was caused by a falling bookcase.

ALKAN EDITION
CHARLES HENRI VALENTIN ALKAN: This Edition includes the major piano works: both cycles Studies in all the minor and major keys (Op. 39 and 35), the Grande Sonata, the Concerti da Camera, organ works and chamber music.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09h64bl)
Harassment in classical music

Tom Service looks at issues around sexual harassment in classical music and the arts in light of recent scandals to hit the worlds of entertainment and politics. We hear from Deborah Annetts, Chief Executive of the Incorporated Society of Musicians; Naomi Pohl, Assistant General Secretary at the Musician's Union; and Frances Richens, Editor of the magazine Arts Professional - as well as testimonies from victims of sexual harassment.

Also on the programme, an interview with academic Nancy November about her new book 'Cultivating String Quartets in Beethoven's Vienna', arguing for the need to readdress the context in which string quartets are to be understood at the beginning of the 19th-Century. Paul Cassidy, viola player from the Brodsky Quartet discusses the book with Tom and explains how it will inform his playing and enhance the understanding of this repertoire.

And Tom sits down at the piano with jazz pianist Brad Mehldau to discuss Bach and improvisation.

Origins of Jazz Dance

Katie Derham considers the world of early jazz dance with Strictly Come Dancing choreographer Ryan Francois, from its roots in the notorious world of black slavery, to Harlem in the 1920s, and beyond.

A popular feature of BBC One's "Strictly Come Dancing" are the jazz routines - the Charleston and Jive, with their colour, excitement and joie de vivre. Katie Derham looks back on the journey that these dance styles undertook before arriving at their modern form and considers the stories, music and movement that shaped them. With Katie is one of Strictly's regular choreographers, Ryan Francois, a specialist in jazz dance, who helps to unpick the origins of one of dance's most vibrant forms.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09h2v5m)
Susan Richards

Susan Richards, writer and commentator on contemporary Russia, talks to Michael Berkeley about her fascination with the country and her passion for 20th-century Russian music.

Susan's first book, Epics of Everyday Life, was about the euphoric period after the collapse of communism. She travelled all over Russia to try to find out how ordinary people were coping with the discovery that they'd been so comprehensively lied to for so long. Her second book, sixteen years in the writing, was Lost and Found in Russia, and it described the collective nervous breakdown that took place after that. Both books are a testimony to her fascination with the lives of ordinary Russians - and a celebration of friendship. They also include hair-raising encounters with the KGB and the Mafia.

A Founding Editor of OpenDemocracy, set up in 2001 to encourage democratic debate around the world, Susan is also the co-founder, with her husband the television producer Roger Graef, of Bookaid, which has sent more than a million books to Russian public libraries.

Susan's music takes us on a journey from pre-revolutionary Russia to the early 21st century, with pieces by Scriabin, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, and the contemporary composer Sofia Gubaidulina. And we hear music inspired by a Siberian forest, and a singer Susan first met during a hair-raising encounter with the mafia.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09h3mzx)
New Generation Thinkers: Edmund Richardson and Sarah Jackson

Alexander the Great's Tomb was famous and then it disappeared. Classical historian Edmund Richardson has spent the last few years following in the Macedonian's wake and admits to a growing obsession with the mystery of the missing corpse and its final resting place. Join him as he goes in search of those who claim to have found the conqueror's last remains, peers into a legend-filled sarcophagus standing shyly by the Rosetta stone in the British Museum and follows an imaginatively talented English gentleman to Alexandria during the Napoleonic Wars where rumours abound that the French have uncovered a great secret. The quest, not the bones, that's the thing.

Contributers: Professor Paul Cartledge; Dr Nora Goldschmidt; Dr Neal Spencer
Readers: Sudha Bhuchar; Rupert Holliday Evans

In the second half, Sarah Jackson, from Nottingham Trent University, investigates the human voice, its mechanical counterparts and the way the remote voice has affected the way we express ourselves. Framed by a 1960s GPO information film about the newly automated exchange featuring 'Mr Phone' and his friends, this documentary explores the relationship between the voice and the machine.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b09h3nf1)
The Devil's Passion

David Suchet stars as Satan - and a bible's-worth of other characters, human and animal - in this comic, gripping, poetic and pungent hell's-eye view of the Passion of Christ, written by renowned satirist, playwright and actor Justin Butcher.

33 AD. Jesus enters Jerusalem to fulfil his destiny. Satan ascends from Hell to stop him.

"Within the next hour, our operatives will isolate, engage and capture or kill the notorious leader of the most extreme, dangerous and contagious ideology to emerge in the modern era, whose terror activities represent the gravest threat to our interests across the region and the wider world.

I refer, of course, to the radical preacher and populist demagogue Y'shua Bar-Yessuf - the man known, by way of shorthand to our operatives, as 'Jesus'."

The Devil's Passion offers an outrageously entertaining fresh perspective - as the ancient story is played out once more, in our modern world of security, surveillance and ideological warfare.

Satan ..... David Suchet
Jesus ..... Amir El-Masry
Miriam ..... Lara Sawalha

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b09h30v0)
Thursday - Opera Matinee: Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin

As as tribute to the great baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky who died last month at the age of 55, another chance to hear him in one of his signature roles, Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin. When Tatyana (Nicole Car) is introduced to the dashing young Onegin (Dmitri Hvorostovsky) from St Petersburg, she believes that he is the hero of her dreams, the man she has imagined through reading her beloved books. But Onegin coldly rejects her and leaves her devastated. Bored at Tatyana's name-day party, Onegin then flirts with her sister Olga (Oksana Volkova), outraging the poet Lensky (Michael Fabiano), Olga's fiancé and Onegin's only friend. Lensky challenges Onegin to a duel and is killed by Onegin, who then travels the world in an attempt to escape his guilt. Onegin eventually returns to Russia to discover that Tatyana has become the elegant wife of Prince Gremin (Ferruccio Furlanetto). Onegin is overcome, and begs her to return his love ...

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b09h666x)
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Brahms & Prokofiev

A festive celebration of love, given by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, conductor Alexander Vedernikov and pianist Martin Helmchen, presented by Adam Tomlinson from Birmingham's Symphony Hall.

Two magical tales tonight, beginning with Brahms's Second Piano Concerto. Hardly the "tiny, tiny piano concerto with a tiny, tiny wisp of a scherzo" Brahms described, it travels from tenderness to ebulliance, via a heartfelt slow movement whose theme would later inform the poignant Immer leiser wird mein Schlummer of his Op 105 songs. Then a fairytale happy ending: Alexander Vedernikov's arrangement of Prokofiev's enchanting Cinderella. Pumpkins, dwarves and ugly sisters abound, but what Prokofiev "wished to express above all... was the poetic love of Cinderella and the Prince, the birth and flowering of that love, the obstacles in its path, and finally the dream fulfilled." All together now - aaaah!
