Helen Wallace makes a personal choice from among the available recordings of Haydn's String Quartet in G minor Op 20 No 3

The six string quartets Opus 20 by Joseph Haydn were a milestone in his journey to become "the father of the string quartet". The quartets were composed in 1772 at a time of turmoil in Haydn's life, and also when he was coming into contact with the new philosophical and political ideas sweeping Europe.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b09rwz4p)

This week Sarah Walker's Sunday Escape is the Intermezzo Sinfonico from Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana. She also has music through the ages ranging from John Playford's 1651 collection to the contemporary sounds of Cheryl Frances-Hoad. Plus there's Mozart's Symphony No 21, and a triple concerto by Telemann.


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09rwmbk)
Bishi

Singer, multi-instrumentalist, electronic sitar player, performer and DJ, Bishi has performed with everyone from Yoko Ono, Pulp, Goldfrapp, the LSO, and the Kronos Quartet. A glamorous and extravagantly costumed presence on stage, she's influenced by both Eastern and Western classical music as well as electronic dance, glam rock and folk music.

Michael Berkeley talks to her about growing up with the music of her mother, Susmita Bhattacharya, a celebrated Indian classical singer who knew Ravi Shankar. Bishi has her own take on the sitar, which she plays like an electric guitar.

A talented chorister and pianist as a child, she could have chosen a career in Western classical music, but instead has brought it to bear on her own panoramic musical style.

She chooses music from Ravi Shankar's collaboration with Philip Glass, iconic film soundtracks she's used in her work as a DJ, a song she's sung from a Bulgarian choir and pieces from major influences Mica Levi and Meredith Monk.

Producer: Jane Greenwood
A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.

After four seasons of in-fighting and warring between the two factions, expensive set and costume designs and overpaid starry performers, both companies went bankrupt in 1737.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b09rz2pq)
Debussy the Impressionist?

Tom Service considers whether Claude Debussy was an Impressionist or not. He is often said to have composed Impressionist music - in such popular works as Claire de Lune and La Mer. But Tom argues that Debussy's music has quite a different character to that of the Impressionist painters - and to prove it he discusses the techniques of those painters with art historian Anthea Callen. Debussy, Tom argues, was a modernist, an abstract composer and also (in his opera Pelléas et Melisande) a creator of nightmares.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b08nyr2q)
The Fight Between Carnival and Lent

Jenny Agutter and Peter Wight with readings and music inspired by the 1559 oil painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder.

The selection of music and readings explores the more universal struggle, between the desire to eat, drink, and let lose, embodied in Carnival, and the spirit of restraint and self-control personified in Lent. Including readings from Rabelais, Baudelaire, Donne, and Emily Dickinson, and music from Verdi, Mozart, Bach and Penderecki.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.

First broadcast in May 2017 as part of Radio 3's Breaking Free season of programming exploring the impact of Martin Luther's Revolution.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09rwmby)
Patrick Kavanagh: the Inexhaustible Adventure of a Gravelled Yard

W.B. Yeats is revered, Seamus Heaney is beloved, but the poet that everyone in Ireland can quote is Patrick Kavanagh. 50 years after Kavanagh's death the poet Theo Dorgan wanders the streets of Dublin and lanes of County Monaghan, tracing his life and significance.

Patrick Kavanagh was one of ten children, his father a shoemaker and farmer. He wrote unflinchingly, when this was being romanticised, about the poverty - material, sensual and spiritual - of Ireland's rural population. It was Kavanagh's poems, such as 'Kerr's Ass' and 'The Great Hunger', with their insistence on the labour, the local, the idioms of speech that Heaney said gave him his 'word hoard' and even permission to write. 'The Great Hunger' is a monumental achievement, a rural equivalent of T.S. Eliot's 'The Waste Land'. Kavanagh also wrote lyrically of the beauty of the landscape and the spiritual consolation of nature. Kavanagh scholar Sister Una Agnew argues he is a Christian mystic.

Dorgan meets Peter Murphy, now 90, who knew Kavanagh as a farmer in Monaghan, before he walked the 60 miles to Dublin to meet AE (George Russell) who had published his early poems. At University College, Dublin, Lucy Collins, curator of a Kavanagh exhibition, explains how he plunged into the literary life of the city - while despising it. Kavanagh became a Dublin character, once suing a newspaper for calling him an alcoholic sponger (he lost). But poets who knew him - Brian Lynch, Macdara Woods - remember his kindness and support.

Kavanagh developed cancer and had a lung removed. During his convalescence he sat by Dublin's Grand Canal and achieved some peace. This led to some great poems, such 'The Hospital', a moving expression of his appreciation of 'the inexhaustible adventure of a gravelled yard'. Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Ireland's poet laureate, thinks this appreciation of the ordinary is the hallmark of his work.

At the canal-side bench with its sculpture of Kavanagh Dorgan meets Seamus Hosey. For years he taught Kavanagh's work to school students, who, because the poems are unencumbered by myth and do not demand great historical knowledge, quickly understood and were touched by them. So Kavanagh's poems are lodged in the memories of generations of Irish people.

Kavanagh achieved simplicity, but was not simplistic. Dorgan demonstrates how keen his poetic sensibility was, aware, early on, of Ginsberg and and The Beats.

Half a century after Kavanagh's death Theo Dorgan visits his grave, his birth-place and places in between. He talks to those who knew, and know about this one-man awkward squad, capable of great tenderness, a ranter in drink, and for all that a man more beloved than he ever knew. Not least because he wrote the great song of unrequited love, 'Raglan Road', sung somewhere, in Ireland and around the world, every night.

Presenter: Theo Dorgan
Producer: Julian May.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b09rwmc2)
The Last of the Volsungs

Drawn from one of the best known Icelandic sagas, a powerful new dramatisation of the tragic story of Sigurd Volsung and Brynhild, the woman he loves, With an introduction by the author.

By Melissa Murray

Sigurd ..... David Sturzaker
Regin ..... David Schofield
Gunnar ..... Carl Prekopp
Hod ..... Gerard McDermott
Gudrun ..... Lyndsey Marshal
Brynhild ..... Abbie Andrews
Sadhbh ..... Isabella Inchbald
Arvid ..... Clive Hayward
Alf ..... Rupert Holliday-Evans
Hjordis ..... Kath Weare
Warriors ..... Tayla Kovacevic-Ebong, Gary Duncan, Philip Bretherton

Directed by Marc Beeby

The Last of the Volsungs is based, at times loosely, on part of the 13th century Icelandic Volsunga Saga. The sagas are an extraordinary rich and varied cultural treasury. In style they can be domestic, historical, heroic, funny and tragic and can claim with a lot of justification to be the earliest European novels or at least the precursors to them. The Volsung saga falls within the heroic tradition and it has been the inspiration for many - William Morris, Tolkien and of course Wagner.

At the bedrock of the heroic saga is the idea of Ragnarok, the doom of the Gods. At the end of time the Gods go out and fight a last battle with their enemies, the Frost Giants and their allies, and in the conflict the universe is destroyed. The Gods die. This is not a Last Judgement; there are no morally justified winners and damned sinners. It's just the end - the inevitable, organic end of everything. What's deemed admirable - although post apocalypse there's actually no one left to admire it - is the stoicism, the courage of the warriors as they rally round Odin All Father facing certain annihilation in that final battle. It's a stark enough philosophy. It leads to a warrior class more than half in love with bloody death, their own as much as their enemies.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09rx2dl)
Dowland and His Legacy, Dowland spreads his wings

Dowland may not have succeeded in his wish to obtain a court appointment in England but his skills as a skilled lutenist spread abroad and in 1598 he took up an appointment at the Court of Christian IV of Denmark where he was one of the highest paid members of the household. His 'Second Book of Songs' was published two years later. Donald Macleod introduces some pieces from that collection performed by a Canadian group who give Dowland's songs a decidedly celtic twist, more of his distinctive lute pieces and a piano arrangement of one of his most popular songs by Percy Grainger.

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra
Mischa Santora (conductor)

The US twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul have a long tradition of first class music making, and all this week Penny Gore introduces, on Afternoon Concert, recordings of their flagship ensembles, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra. Today, there's a chance to hear two concerts from their 2016/17 seasons. The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra begin with a programme that pairs Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges with Mozart, before offering a rare chance to hear the orchestration of Dvorak's 'American' String Quartet.

After that, a short ride down the Interstate 94 takes us to Minneapolis, and a concert from the Minnesota Orchestra with Music Director Osmo Vänskä. The Orchestra's principal harp, Kathy Kienzle, is in the spotlight for Ginastera's Harp Concerto, and the programme ends with a work by the late American composer and frequent Minnesota Orchestra collaborator Stephen Paulus.

To finish today, the world premiere performance of Sally Beamish's Third Piano Concerto, given a year ago by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Jonathan Biss. Subtitled 'City Stanzas', it was commissioned by today's soloist as part of a project to create new piano concertos inspired by the five concertos of Beethoven. Sally Beamish took Beethoven's First Piano Concerto as a starting point and re-imagined it in a modern urban environment.

New Ways Through the Glens, The Moss Lairds

With the title from an essential work by A.R.B. Haldane, 'New Ways Through the Glens' is Kenneth Steven's personal reflection on the changes brought to the people and landscape of the Scottish Highlands by the arrival of roads and canals in the 18th and 19th centuries. In the second in the series he explores how the central belt of Scotland was transformed by land clearance, just where the Highlands meet the Lowlands.


TUE 23:00 Late Junction (b09rzlvj)
Max Reinhardt

Sounds old and new, dry and wet. There's a chance to listen in on aquasonics expert Tomoko Sauvage's 'natural synthesiser': water-filled porcelain bowls amplified by hydrophones. Meanwhile in the Sahara, ethnomusicologist and producer DJ Tudo gives the desert blues a Brazilian twist.

Max also selects an acclaimed new release by Bojan Čiċić's Illyria Consort of 18th-century music by London-based Italian composer and violinist Giovanni Carbonelli. And he dips into the back catalogue of modern-day Londoner Errollyn Wallen - a track that shifts from contemporary chamber music to soulful jazz, featuring her trumpeter brother Byron and saxophonist Courtney Pine.

Dowland and His Legacy, The Third and Last Booke of Songs

Dowland still had his post in the Danish Court where his lute-playing skills were handsomely rewarded but he lost any chance to obtain the post he so desperately wanted in Elizabeth's court when she died in 1603, just before the publication of his third book of songs. Donald Macleod introduces a selection from that collection whose words contain extravagant tributes to the Queen, and another of Benjamin Britten's works inspired by Dowland poignant melodies.

This afternoon is devoted to a concert by the Minnesota Orchestra with their Music Director Osmo Vänskä, in which they're joined by the American-Korean violinist Esther Yoo to play Bruch's First Violin Concerto.

The US twin cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul have a long tradition of first class music making, and all this week Penny Gore introduces, on Afternoon Concert, recordings of their flagship ensembles, The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra.

Today's programme is devoted to the Minnesota Orchestra, and a concert from last season in which the American-Korean violinist, and graduate of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artists Scheme, Esther Yoo, joined the orchestra to play Bruch's First Violin Concerto, still considered one of the cornerstones of the violin repertoire. It's a cornerstone of the symphonic repertoire that follows: Dvorak's Ninth Symphony. The American themes it explores have earned it the soubriquet 'From the New World'. And it's an American work which opens proceedings: Copland's stately Lincoln Portrait for orchestra and speaker.

From the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester
Presented by Tom Redmond

Simon Holt: a table of noises

8.10: Music Interval

8.30
Mahler: Symphony No 7

Colin Currie (percussion)
BBC Philharmonic
John Storgards (conductor)

His Great Uncle Ash, Simon Holt says was 'amongst many other things, a taxidermist'; he is also the inspiration for Holt's percussion concerto 'a table of noises' which takes as its starting point the materials and characters of his craft. The music brings to life Fly, Uncle Ash's dog who used to fall asleep standing up by the fire and a drawer full of false eyes yet to find their animal. Great Uncle Ash's taxidermist's table is turned into a table of percussion instruments from which Colin Currie and the BBC Philharmonic will conjure up the work's unique sound world.
The stroke of oars on water provided Mahler with the inspiration he craved to finish his Seventh Symphony and the opening of the work creates a vivid sound-picture. Instrumental colour (Mahler includes mandolin, guitar and cowbells), folk song and dance, marches and distorted waltz rhythms and the sounds of nature make this a symphony that really does embrace the world, as Mahler believed it should.

With the title from an essential work by A.R.B. Haldane, 'New Ways Through the Glens' is Kenneth Steven's personal reflection on the changes brought to the people and landscape of the Scottish Highlands by the arrival of roads and canals in the 18th and 19th centuries. In this programme he looks at the extraordinary work of Thomas Telford in building roads through the Highlands.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b09rzn0w)
Max Reinhardt

Percussive plenty and beats to banish the darkness. Max shares a new electronic version of a Fela Kuti classic from French artist Leeroy, and Japanese percussionist Kuniko Kato's rendition of Xenakis's Pléïades - music she describes as 'a myriad of bell crickets singing at the same time... the initial atom of the universe bursting into all the shapes and colours we see around us'.

Felix Kubin's latest rhythmic exploration seems rather less utopian - 'The Beat of Work' is inspired by industrial and instructional films of the late 20th century. Nevertheless the often motoric, precise music also reflects Kubin's signature playfulness.

Plus, a dash of west-coast cool from Gerry Mulligan and Chet Baker's classic pianoless quartet of the early 50s.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09rz46g)
Dowland and His Legacy, Lachrimae

Dowland's latest publication, which appeared in 1604, was his only collection of entirely instrumental works, famous for the seven deeply felt consort pieces linked by the same falling 'tear' motif. Donald Macleod introduces this important set plus a selection of dances which appear in the same collection, and an intriguing arrangement of some of Dowland's songs by the French jazz guitarist and composer David Chevallier.

Thursday - Opera Matinee: Bellini's Il pirata

Penny Gore introduces a recording of Bellini's Il Pirata from the final Bel Canto at Caramoor season, held last summer in New York State, USA. Il Pirata was Bellini's breakthrough opera in Milan. It's a highly romantic tale of love and subterfuge set in 13th century Sicily, with a chorus of pirates or ladies-in-waiting never far away. Multiple award winning American soprano Angela Meade is the heroine Imogene, and Argentine bel canto tenor Santiago Ballerini is her beloved pirate chief Gualtiero.

Imogene ..... Angela Meade (soprano)
Gualtiero ..... Santiago Ballerini (tenor)

The Skampa Quartet and Melvyn Tan at Wigmore Hall

At London's Wigmore Hall, the Skampa String Quartet play Mozart and Janáček, and are joined by pianist Melvyn Tan for the rarely performed Piano Quintet by Korngold.

Introduced by Martin Handley.

Mozart: String Quartet in C, K465 (Dissonance)
Janáček: String Quartet No 1 (Kreutzer Sonata)

8.15pm Interval

Korngold: Piano Quintet in E, Op 15

Škampa Quartet
Melvyn Tan (piano)

Recorded at Wigmore Hall, London, on 18 February 2018

The Škampa Quartet, from the Czech Republic, perform two of the great works of the quartet repertoire: Mozart's 'Dissonance', which takes its name from its harmonically probing slow introduction; and Janáček's fiercely passionate First Quartet, named after a novella by Tolstoy which in turn is named after a Beethoven Violin Sonata. After the interval they are joined by pianist Melvyn Tan for Erich Korngold's rarely heard Piano Quintet: composed in 1923 before he left Europe for Hollywood it is typically expansive and Romantic, but also an essentially good-humoured work, apparently laced with coded musical messages to his fiancée.

New Ways Through the Glens, The Last Wolf

With the title from an essential work by A.R.B. Haldane, 'New Ways Through the Glens' is Kenneth Steven's personal reflection on the changes brought to the people and landscape of the Scottish Highlands by the arrival of roads and canals in the 18th and 19th centuries. In his final Essay, he finds that the new routes are opening up the Highlands to tourists for the first time and a romantic view of the lochs and mountains was born. The mission had been to bring the Highlands in to the United Kingdom, to civilise a landscape and a people that had for too long been allowed to remain wild and unaccountable. There is no doubt that change had to happen, but it came at a high price. As Kenneth points out, 'It's little wonder that most of the songs of the Gaels are about loss.'.
