SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b09l21cf)
Rossini's Semiramide at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

Presented by Donald Macleod, a Rossini masterpiece not seen at the Royal Opera House for more than 120 years: Semiramide, the dramatic story of the Queen of Assyria, who conspired with her then lover Assur, an army commander, to poison her husband, King Nino, whose corpse comes back from the underworld to claim justice. As if things weren't complicated enough, Semiramide now loves a younger warrior, Arsace, and wants him to be king, but unbeknown to her, he's her long-lost son - and discovering it triggers an ending of tragic proportions. Superstar mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato takes the title role, with mezzo-soprano Daniela Barcellona as Arsace and the bass Michele Pertusi as Assur. Sir Antonio Pappano conducts the Orchestra and Chorus of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in a production by David Alden.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b09l22mq)

This week's Sunday Escape is Edvard Grieg's song "Last Spring" in which Sarah Walker whisks us off to a Nordic landscape. She also includes Mozart's Horn Quintet K407, the contrasting atmospheres of music by John Dowland and Harry Partch, and operatic gems from Bizet.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b07xhfch)
Grayson Perry

Grayson Perry burst into the public consciousness in 2003 when he accepted the Turner Prize with the words: 'It's about time a transvestite potter from Essex won the Turner.' Since then he's become celebrated for his beautiful, intricately decorated vases, which juxtapose images of innocence, obscenity and humour.
He's worked across many other media as well - from tapestry to bronze, print-making to architecture, and the outrageously flamboyant frocks he wears when he goes out dressed as a woman are works of art in their own right.

He chooses Tchaikovsky, Philip Glass, Marcello and Kathleen Ferrier and explores with Michael Berkeley the emotional power of music and memory; escaping an unhappy childhood; the fun of demystifying the art world; and the joys and perils of moving from rebel to national treasure.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b084cs40)
The Semitone

Tom Service considers the semitone. Music's most fundamental building block, it can mean sorrow when it falls, triumph when it rises, but also provoke fear (in the theme from Jaws). It can become a glittering decoration when repeated as a trill. Tom talks to mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly about the tragic falling semitones of Purcell's opera Dido and Aeneas, and also to musicologist Sarha Moore about the varied significances of the semitone in musical traditions of the Middle East and India, and its special effect in the riffs of Heavy Metal rock music.
In the Sound of Music, Julie Andrews sang "Tee - a drink with jam and bread - that will bring us back to Doh" - but what makes that "tee" note pull us so inexorably back (by a semitone) to "doh" - the tonic? Tom calls the semitone "the piquant spice that drives the change from one key to another" - powerful effects from a little interval.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09kptx0)
Select, Copy, Paste, Conception

Clemency Burton-Hill presents a series exploring the impact of technology on creativity. Across three episodes she traces how technology has shaped the creative process, from conception and execution, to sharing and experiencing. Technology may help us to be more productive, but does it make our ideas better?

Artists are both preoccupied with technology and empowered by it. Technology underpins the way we live, but how does the technology artists, writers and musicians use change the way they create?

In this first programme she focuses on conception - how technology has shaped the way we have come up with ideas over the last 50 years. We examine the impact of a seminal event in New York that formed a brave new alliance between art and technology. Electronic music composer Suzanne Ciani explains how she trained as a classical composer, but was frustrated by the limitations of the instruments and sought answers in a new instrument built by a former NASA scientist. Pulitzer prize-winning composer John Luther Adams finds his music in wild exposures; a cabin in Alaska that was his home for close to forty years. For him the tool he keeps returning to is a rare discontinued pencil.

Computers can help us paint, write stories, design objects and compose music, but as technology is heralded as an enabler to a better life do we risk losing sight of that spark of imagination that makes us human? If human beings are no longer needed to make art, then what are we for?

Produced by Barney Rowntree.
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3.

Franz Schubert (1797-1828), Schooldays

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

At the age of only 16 the shy, bespectacled Schubert was at school. Yet he was not concentrating on his main studies, being far too distracted by music, much to the disappointment of his father. Today's programme focuses on the year 1813 in Schubert's life, and we hear his String Quartet No.10, D87. Other music includes settings of songs by Schiller and Körner, an opera aria, and movements from his first symphony. Plus we learn about Schubert's sudden rage over his singing rather loudly in a tavern. Presented by Donald Macleod.

Producer: Amy Wheel for BBC Wales.

Sakari Oramo Sibelius Cycle: Symphonies 2 and 7

Soprano Anu Komsi solos in Sibelius's soaring, intense Luonnotar, and fellow Finnish composer Aarre Merikanto's equally daring 'Ekho', a portrait of the doomed love of Echo for Narcissus.

Recorded at the Barbican Hall on Saturday 6th January
Presented by Martin Handley

Sibelius: Symphony No 7 in C, Op 105
Sibelius: Luonnotar Op 70 *

8.20
Aarre Merikanto: Ekho*
Sibelius: Symphony No 2 in D, Op 43

Anu Komsi (soprano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

Twenty-five years separate Sibelius's Second and Seventh symphonies, but that hardly hints at the growth in his musical style - No 2 rich, romantic and the work that sealed his international reputation; No 7 a powerful study, in one movement, of organic musical growth. Together, they conclude Sakari Oramo's Sibelius symphony cycle with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Luonnotar (1913) from mid-way between the two is a magical creation-story for soprano and orchestra and finds Anu Komsi the soloist - in a work premiered in Gloucester. no less! Aarre Merikanto's Ekho (1922), a perfect, beautiful work makes an ideal partner to Luonnotar - and Komsi is a superb exponent of this vocally taxing score, having already made a magnificent recording of the piece.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b09kqg6l)
Cornerstones, Flint

The writer Alan Garner sparks with flint, the stone that, perhaps more than any other, has enabled human civilisation. It's a stone that has featured in some of his novels, such as Red Shift, where the same Neolithic hand axe resurfaces across different times to haunt his characters. And it is time and evolution that he looks at in this essay: "My blood walked out of Africa ninety thousand years ago. We came by flint. Flint makes and kills; gives shelter, food; it clothes us. Flint clears forest. Flint brings fire. With flint we bear the cold."

Alan's essay is the first of five Cornerstones this week in which different writers reflect on how a particular rock shapes both people and place.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09kqdyg)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828), Composing for money

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

In 1816, a year in which he made his first money from composing, 19-year-old Schubert was locked in a room and forced to compose by his 'friends', friends who went on to encourage him to leave his teaching work and devote himself to music.

We hear one of the songs he gifted to his first love (sadly not resulting in the marriage he longed for), part of an early setting of the Mass, settings of poems by Goethe, and his eleventh String Quartet.

Producer: Amy Wheel.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b09kqgpd)
Cornerstones, Lewisian Gneiss

The writer Sara Maitland conjures with a rock of ages, Lewisian gneiss. Two-thirds the age of the earth itself, and the oldest stone in the UK, it makes up parts of the Northwest Highlands and the Western Isles. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about rock, place and landscape.

Sara reflects on how the gneiss began its slow journey across the face of the earth more or less where Antarctica is today. It is still moving northwards, at about the same speed as our nails grow. 'Gneiss' comes from the German word meaning to sparkle, and Sara wonders whether it's this quality that convinced Neolithic builders to construct the Callanish stone circle on Lewis from this distinctive, ancient stone.

The other Cornerstones essays broadcast on Radio 3 this week hears different writers reflecting on how other rocks shape landscapes and us, such as flint, North Sea oil and gas, gypsum, which is the main constituent of plaster, and the clay bricks that define our urban landscapes.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09kqf7f)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828), Friends, and unfinished business

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and featurse one of his string quartets every day.

Today the focus is on the year 1820, when Schubert was aged 23. Donald Macleod looks into Schubert's friendships, people who rallied round helping him out, including paying his rent whilst he worked on establishing himself as a freelance composer. However, some of his friends cheerfully began calling him "The Tyrant" due to Schubert's tendency to occasionally respond to these kindnesses harshly; they began to see a different side to his nature.

Music featured includes an extract from two unfinished works, his oratorio Lazarus and the Quartet Movement in C minor. Plus we hear one of the best loved of all Schubert's Goethe settings, Erlkönig,which was first performed in this year, and the glorious Song of the Spirits Over the Waters.

Producer: Amy Wheel.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b09l25w3)
The Transports

Verity Sharp presents the new production, featuring many of Britain's finest younger folk musicians, of Peter Bellamy's famous ballad opera The Transports, recorded live at the Radio Theatre in Broadcasting House.

7.30 The Transports: Part One

8.20 Interval Feature: A Portrait of Peter Bellamy
Verity Sharp sketches a portrait, in words and music, of The Transports' composer, Peter Bellamy, revealing a complex, troubled character and rather an outsider. He admired Rudyard Kipling, when most dismissed him as an imperialist, for giving voice to ordinary soldiers, and set his Barrack-Room Ballads. There are contributions from Heather Wood, who sang with Bellamy in The Young Tradition, in which he came to fame in the 1960s; the singer Martin Carthy; fellow Norfolk musician Damien Barber, who was mentored by Bellamy; Jon Boden, a musician much influenced by Bellamy; and his widow, Jenny Bellamy. It features, too, Bellamy's own music, with his distinctive singing.

8.40 The Transports: Part Two

Cast
Susannah Holmes ..... Rachel McShane (cello, vocals)
Henry Kable ..... Sean Cooney (vocals)
Narrator ..... Matthew Crampton (vocals)
Abe Carman ..... David Eagle (vocals, accordion)
The Coachman ..... Michael Hughes (vocals)
The Mother ..... Nancy Kerr (fiddle, vocals)
The Convict ..... Benji Kirkpatrick (guitar, bouzouki, vocals)
The Shantyman ..... Saul Rose (melodeons, vocals)
John Simpson, the humane turnkey ..... Greg Russell (guitar, vocals)
The Father ..... Paul Sartin (oboe, cor anglais, fiddle, vocals)

The Transports tells true story of Susannah Holmes and Henry Kable. She was convicted of stealing £2's-worth of spoons and linen. He broke into a house. Both were sentenced to death in 1784. This was commuted to transportation. They met in Norwich gaol, fell in love and had a child and, after forced separation and great anguish, and the stubborn compassion of a humane turnkey, sailed on the First Fleet to Australia. This sounds like a traditional song and it inspired the folk singer Peter Bellamy to compose a cycle of ballads. The Transports was recorded in 1977, with arrangements by Dolly Collins and a glittering roster of musicians - Dave Swarbrick, Nic Jones, June Tabor, Mike & Norma Waterson and Martin Carthy - and this album is one of the monuments of English folk music. The new production features a new generation of musicians of similar calibre: BBC Folk Award winners The Young 'Uns, Nancy Kerr, members of Bellowhead and Faustus. Bellamy's songs have been arranged afresh by Paul Sartin and narrator Matthew Crampton weaves the story through them with new material linking Susannah Holmes and Henry Kable's story with the experience of refugees and migrants today.

Producer: Julian May.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b09l25w5)
The In Between

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough explores the uncanny possibilities of the In Between with the neuroscientist Dean Burnett, award-winning poet Vahni Capildeo, artist Alexandra Carr, writer and walker of London and other wastelands, Iain Sinclair, and the philosopher, Emily Thomas.
How do our brains and bodies react in the In Between spaces of the airport lounge or the station platform where we're waiting to move on but temporarily in stasis and why have so many artists, writers and poets used these places to explore the uncanny, the strange and ourselves?

Dean Burnett: 'The Idiot Brain' is out now
Vahni Capildeo: 'Matters of Expatriation' is out now; her forthcoming collection 'Venus as a Bear' is out in April 2018

WED 22:45 The Essay (b09kqgyx)
Cornerstones, North Sea Oil and Gas

The writer Esther Woolfson contrasts the solidity of Aberdeen, the 'Granite City', with the decline of the North Sea oil and gas industry, on which its economy has so relied since the 1970s. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about rock, place and landscape.

Author of 'Field Notes from a Hidden City', about her encounters with Aberdeen's wildlife, Esther reflects on the city's relationship with the North Sea hydrocarbons industry, and how much the city has been affected by the waning oil boom. She contrasts the city's big, public granite Victorian edifices with the slow creation in past milennia beneath the seabed of the oil and gas hydrocarbons which have powered the modern world.

Among the other Cornerstones essays this week, the writer Alan Garner reflects upon flint, the stone that has enabled human civilisation, and Sara Maitland considers Lewisian gneiss, so much a rock of ages that it is two thirds the age of the earth itself.

Across several solo albums she has seamlessly sewn together musical, literary, and visual modes of expression, creating work that is at once accessible and obscure. Her other work includes a novel, poetry, journalism, a book of feminist essays, sound installations, and even a Master's thesis on Kate Bush.

Also on the programme tonight: Arctic electronica, spiritual new age music based on liquid teleportation, and David Toop's Dirty Songs.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09kqfly)
Franz Schubert (1797-1828), Joyless and friendless

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and features one of his string quartets every day.

In this programme, Donald Macleod takes a look at Schubert's life in the year 1824. Aged 27, Schubert was suffering from symptoms of syphilis, as well as episodes of despair and depression. We hear how his father encouraged him to persevere through his suffering, and Schubert was able to take the sorrow and melancholy he was feeling through into his music.

That music in this programme includes Schubert's Rosamunde String Quartet, some of his "Grand Duo" Sonata for piano four hands, and - proof of his composition speed - his setting of Gebet for vocal quartet, commissioned in the morning and performed in the evening of the very same day.

Producer: Amy Wheel.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b09kqh7m)
Cornerstones, Gypsum and Alabaster

The artist and archaeologist Rose Ferraby gets to grips with something that is always around us, but which we almost never stop to consider: gypsum, the chief constituent of the plaster on the walls around us. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about how rock, place and landscape affects us.

Gypsum's use dates back to at least the ancient pyramids of Egypt. Rose explains how gypsum, being highly soluble, is responsible for the notorious sink holes around the city of Ripon, frequently causing subsidence and damage to homes. She also considers alabaster, a soft, luminous stone composed of gypsum, and which was used to stunning effect for medieval memorials and sometimes even in place of stained glass in windows.

Among the other Cornerstones essays this week the writer Alan Garner takes flint, the stone that has enabled human civilisation, and Esther Woolfson contrasts Aberdeen's granite solidity with the decline of the North Sea oil and gas industry, on which its economy has relied for the last forty years.

Producer: Mark Smalley

Franz Schubert (1797-1828), Penniless and ill

This week of programmes about Franz Schubert focuses on five years through his short life, and feature sone of his string quartets every day.

In 1826, Schubert was only two years away from his untimely death at the age of 31. Three of his close friends married in this year, whilst he remained single. In this year Schubert was short of money, suffering manic-depression and syphilis, and smoking and drinking heavily. But we hear, in a passionate outburst, his declaration: "I am Schubert....who has written great things and beautiful things... and who is going to write still more beautiful things..."

This programme, presented by Donald Macleod, features Schubert's monumental final string quartet, plus his setting of Goethe's poignant "Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt" - "None but the Lonely Heart".

Producer: Amy Wheel.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b09kqhbp)
Cornerstones, Clay Bricks

The poet Fiona Hamilton contrasts the different states of clay before and after it's baked hard. The satisfying tactile quality of clay squished in the hand, compared to the dry ordinariness of a brick. It's part of this week's series of Cornerstones - nature writing about how rock, place and landscapes affect us.

Mud bricks are as old as civilisation, and have been used throughout the world, but in England they underpinned the Industrial Revolution, enabling the rapid, cheap construction of mills, factories, terraced housing and the bridges and viaducts of an expanding rail network. Whilst bricks are mundane and ubiquitous, they derive from the deposits left across large parts of England after the last Ice Age, and so are surely the youngest 'rock' of all.

Producer: Mark Smalley.
