9.30am Building a Library
Sarah Lenton considers the available recordings of Donizetti's evergreen comic opera, L'elisir d'amore or The Elixir of Love. It is one of the few Donizetti operas that has never been out of the repertoire since its first performance and that is largely because of the seemingly endless stream of melodies as well as an unusually well-crafted libretto from Felice Romani. The recordings spotlight the best of bel canto singing from the last few decades with singers such as Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras, just to stick with the tenors. In fact the hit aria "Una furtiva lagrima" is a perfect demonstration of Donizetti's uncanny knack of writing effectively for the tenor voice.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b09nmq82)
Paul Lewis

Presented by Tom Service.

Tom Service meets Paul Lewis, one of the UK's leading pianists as he embarks on a landmark series of recitals exploring the music of Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms. They discuss the parallels and connections which exist between these composers' works, and enjoy the beauty, humour, tragedy and serenity found in their writing for the piano.

It's the London Sinfonietta's 50th birthday and the ensemble have dug deep in their archives to create a collection of 50 objects to celebrate. Tom joins their artistic director and chief executive, Andrew Burke, and oboist/composer, Melinda Maxwell at London Sinfonietta HQ to look over the collection and talks to composer Harrison Birtwistle, and visual artist and composer Christian Marclay about the way the ensemble has pushed the boundaries in their first half century.

The Bayeux Tapestry is to visit the UK for the first time in its history, but what were the sounds and music that heralded the Norman Conquest. Jeremy Lewellyn of Oxford University tells all.

Plus, a new book on Brahms's relationship with his poets by Natasha Loges. Tom visits Natasha and her husband, bass-baritone, Stephan Loges at their home as they share their love of Brahms' lieder performing two of their favourite songs, and offer their discoveries about the composer and the poets he set to music.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09p2fdz)
Alistair Spalding

Alistair Spalding talks about dance with the zeal of the convert. Although he's headed Sadler's Wells since 2004, commissioning new work from leading international choreographers - Akram Khan, Mark Morris, Matthew Bourne, Pina Bausch - he doesn't come from a dance background. He left school at sixteen, and worked in a solicitor's office, aiming to be a lawyer. He then studied linguistics and philosophy and became a primary school teacher. And so, how did he end up becoming Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Sadler's Wells in London, the top British venue for international dance?

In Private Passions, Alistair Spalding reveals his route to an unlikely career, beginning with the first dance performance he ever saw: John Cage was in the pit, blowing on a conch shell. He explains his vision of drawing in the best contemporary composers to write for dance, and of widening the repertoire to include older dancers. He discusses too his innovative and highly popular dance afternoons for the over-65s.

Music choices include Debussy, Bach, Thomas Adès, Monteverdi, Nick Cave and Joni Mitchell.

Produced by Elizabeth Burke
A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.

Greek Myths

From the early years of the Renaissance, composers portrayed subjects from Greek mythology. These stories provided particular inspiration as the new operatic genre took hold in the early 17th century. The 18th century saw the philosophical revolution of the Enlightenment spread throughout Europe and accompanied by a certain reaction against Greek myth, there was a tendency to insist on the scientific and philosophical achievements of Ancient Greece. The myths, however, continued to provide an important source of raw material for dramatists and composers. Lucie Skeaping introduces a diverse selection of early music inspired by these Greek myths, including works by Monteverdi, Handel, Purcell, Cavalli, Rameau and Gluck.

From the New World?

Tom Service examines Dvorak's Symphony No 9, "From the New World", one of the BBC's current "Ten Pieces III". Dvorak told the New York Herald in 1893 that "a serious and original school of composition should be established in the United States of America" which he hoped would have at its foundation black composers, like those he met, taught, and whose music he promoted at the National Conservatory of Music of America. Alongside Dvroak's Symphony "From the New World', Tom explores the lesser known Symphonies of three black composers: William Grant Still, Florence Price and William Dawson and how they realised Dvorak's dream for American music and used the symphony to create new languages and communities of listeners.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09p2tyf)
Select, Copy, Paste, Experience

Clemency Burton-Hill presents a landmark series exploring the impact of technology on creativity. Across three episodes we trace how technology has shaped the creative process, from conception to 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 the third and final programme we focus on how technology has changed how we share and experience art, music and literature.

Artist Olafur Eliasson reflects on The Weather Project, where a giant "sun" illuminated the Tate's Turbine Hall. It helped changed the role of the museum and he explains the possibilities that new technologies and collaborations can open up.

Instagram has changed how we experience art and has given artists a new mode of discovery. As the photographs we take on our smartphones are silently improved by algorithms, is it harder to judge the value of culture when there is so much of it?

The British choreographer Wayne McGregor has been using dancers to explore cognition, mathematics and neuroscience. He wants to see what happens when a machine learns your choreography and how it may predict what happens next.

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.

Forgetting, Forgetting Ourselves

Professor Francis O'Gorman wonders how much of what we think is remembering is actually forgetting. What exactly is our relationship with past time and fantasy? He explores the compound presence of forgetfulness masquerading as memory: from the revisiting of places, the re-reading of books, and the revisiting of people we once knew. Is our hold on the past more determined by what we do not remember, cannot remember, or do not want to remember than we easily admit?

Paul Lewis

Presented by Martin Handley.

Haydn: Sonata in C, Hob.XVI/50
Beethoven: 6 Bagatelles, Op 126

8.15: Interval

Brahms: 6 Pieces, Op 118
Haydn: Sonata in G, Hob.XVI/40

Paul Lewis (piano)

Recorded on 23rd January at the Royal Festival Hall, London

This concert features the music of three key figures, Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms, tracing the thread of musical heritage from one to the next.
Haydn is represented by two sonatas that show the composer at his most witty.

Beethoven, who was for a time Haydn's pupil, almost trumps the senior composer at that game in his late Bagatelles, Op 126. In these six brief pieces, punchy inventiveness rubs shoulders with profound lyricism.

Brahms's Op 118 also consists of six contrasting pieces, but these encapsulate emotions ranging from impassioned extroversion to the most haunted, darkly reflective inner journeys.


FRI 22:00 The Verb (b09qlnvt)
The Wellbeing Verb

January is a month of resolutions and fresh starts, of gyms and diets. This week Ian McMillan and guests tackle the language of Wellbeing and Self-Care.

Poets are not generally known for their physical prowess, but in George Szirtes new collection 'Thirty Poets Go To The Gym' (Candlestick). What happens when famous poets from Lord Byron to John Berryman and from Emily Dickinson to Elizabeth Bishop try to get into shape?

What are the strongest influences on the ways we chose to live our lives? Does taking care of someone meaning letting them take care of themselves? These issues are at the heart of Kendall Feaver's new play 'The Almighty Sometimes', starring Julie Hesmondhalgh. Julie discusses her role with Ian, and also examines what wellbeing means to an actor.

The poet Melissa Lee-Houghton won the Somerset Maugham Award for her debut collection 'Sunshine' (Penned in the Margins), an intensely personal collection dealing with her experience of abuse, addiction and mental health issues. Melissa discusses how she protects herself when publishing such personal work.

Producer: Cecile Wright
Presenter: Ian McMillan.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b09nny55)
Forgetting, Pieces of You, Pieces of Me

Poet and playwright Amanda Dalton examines the role of material objects in our quest to preserve or conjure our past. Our uneasy relationship with forgetting means we often keep objects to recall loved ones and hold on to memories. She details the objects she retains of her father's: his cigarette lighter, old cream cardigan and his shoe cleaning kit, as her own symbols to ward off the forgetting.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b09nny5c)
Celtic Connections

Kathryn Tickell with a special show from Celtic Connections record at the CCA in Glasgow, with music from Vieux Farka Touré, Vasen and Paul McKenna Band.
