9.30am
Building a Library: Massenet's Manon with Flora Willson.

Based on the 1731 novel L'histoire du chevalier des Grieux et de Manon Lescaut by the Abbé Prévost, Manon is probably still Massenet's most popular opera. It was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris in 1884, and it has never been out of the repertory since its creation. It is full of charm and vitality with a complex central character who develops from the ingenue of Act 1 to someone altogether more manipulative at the end of the drama.

Elektra is obsessed with the revenge she intends to take, enlisting her siblings for help.

Elektra ..... Christine Goerke (soprano)
Chrysothemis ..... Elza van den Heever (soprano)

Gwyneth Glyn

The poet and singer-songwriter Gwyneth Glyn talks to Michael Berkeley about the music she loves from Wales and around the world.

She's also a television script writer, a playwright and a children's author, having won the Crown at the Urdd Eisteddfod aged 18, and going on to be appointed Wales' National Poet Laureate for Children in 2006, the year she also won Best Female Artist in the Radio Cymru Rock and Pop Awards. Brought up in a Welsh speaking household, she's a passionate advocate of the language both within Wales and internationally.

Gwyneth talks to Michael about writing a libretto for the first ever Welsh language opera, growing up in a rural Welsh-speaking community, and the pleasures and challenges of passing the language on to the next generation.

She chooses music from her collaboration with Indian ghazal singer Tauseef Akhtar, as well as music by Tippett, Welsh folk hero Meredydd Evans, Rimsky Korsakov and Tchaikovsky.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b09vzjk0)
Searching for Paradise

The Listening Service investigates music's divine journeys as part of the BBC's Civilisations season.

Humanity has used music to commune with the sacred for as long as we have been human: from the caves of Chauvet, tens of thousands of years ago, to the churches, temples, and synagogues of today, we have sung and hymned and played our connection with our God(s).
Something else has happened in modern Western society: as organised religion has waned, a cult of music has developed, in which we don't just use music to worship, but worship music and musicians as carriers of a divine spark. With the help of Keith Howard, Emeritus Professor of Music at SOAS and The Reverend Lucy Winkett, Tom explores how music has sounded the sacred and itself become sacred.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b09w2s3p)
Blind, Black and Blue

There were many real blind, black bluesman, scraping a living in the Deep South a hundred years ago. From Blind Willie Johnson and Blind Lemon Jefferson on opposite street corners in Dallas to Blind Blake and Blind Boy Fuller in Georgia and the Carolinas, the early 20th century saw blind bluesmen playing everything from the lewd, raw blues of the juke joint to the God-fearing spirituals beloved of the new wave of Southern churches and with a musical legacy that's lasted through the decades.

How did this group of blind musicians, faced with all the disadvantages of race, segregation, disability and poverty, manage to achieve celebrity in their own day and leave such a lasting mark on the history of American music?

Gary O'Donoghue, who is blind himself, explores the elements of race and culture that made this phenomenon possible.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b06qjknz)
Curated by Harriet Walter, A Human Being Died That Night

Harriet Walter introduces an acclaimed theatre production from the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town and later seen in London and New York. Based on Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela's book, Nicholas Wright's play explores the relationship between the psychologist and Eugene de Kock, the apartheid regime's most notorious assassin.

Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela ..... Noma Dumezweni
Eugene de Kock ..... Matthew Marsh

Sound design by Christopher Shutt
Directed by Jonathan Munby

Produced for the Fugard Theatre by Eric Abraham
Produced for radio by Toby Swift

1997. Pretoria Central Prison, South Africa. Psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela prepares to sit opposite the notorious Eugene de Kock, nicknamed 'Prime Evil', the head of the apartheid regime's death squads. A member of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Madizikela questions de Kock who is serving a 212 year sentence for crimes against humanity, murder, conspiracy to murder, attempted murder, assault, kidnapping, illegal possession of firearms, and fraud. She is determined to try to understand what motivated de Kock's actions. One is reminded of European writer and philosopher Hannah Arendt's endeavour to understand the nature of evil when she wrote about the Nazi holocaust architect Adolf Eichmann's trial in Israel in 1961.

'A Human Being Died That Night' is based on Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madizikela's best-selling book of the same name and explores, through her extraordinary prison interviews with de Kock, how a fundamentally moral person could become a mass murderer.

South African born Nicholas Wright is one of Britain's foremost playwrights and has written regularly for the National Theatre. His plays include 'Vincent in Brixton' (Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play 2003), 'The Last of the Duchess' (2011), 'Travelling Light' (2012) and recently a dramatisation of Pat Barker's 'Regeneration' (2014).

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09w248w)
Claude Debussy (1862-1918), You have to drown the sense of key

Donald Macleod looks at the beginnings of Debussy's career as a composer and the early love interests of his life

In the week of the centenary of the composer's death, Donald Macleod looks at the development of Debussy's career against the background of his turbulent personal life. 'At every crossroads in Debussy's life there was a woman', wrote his biographer Marcel Dietschy, and this week we meet them: from Mme Vasnier, the married singer with whom he conducted an affair during his early years as a struggling composer in Paris and Rome, to the bohemian Gaby Dupont, and his first wife Lily - who attempted suicide when Debussy left her for Emma Bardac. He would settle happily with Emma for the rest of his life, and in his prime, touring internationally as a conductor, wrote to her and their beloved daughter Chouchou, expressing his longing for home.

In Monday's programme, Donald Macleod explores Debussy's life and loves from the end of his student days up to his early thirties and his first masterpiece: Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune. His chief romantic interest during this period was Gaby Dupont, with whom the composer lived for several years in a dank attic with a borrowed piano, a bed, three chairs and a rickety table. They mingled with the who's who of the Parisian artistic and intellectual circles of the late 19th century, but with very little money coming in, their meals often consisted of bread and chocolate...

Wigmore Hall Mondays: Stile Antico

Live from Wigmore Hall, London, vocal ensemble Stile Antico perform works associated with Queen Elizabeth I by Byrd, Tallis, Lassus, Dowland, Wilbye, Weelkes and others.

Introduced by Fiona Talkington.

Byrd: O Lord make thy servant Elizabeth our Queen; Attollite portas
Tallis: Absterge Domine
Lassus: Madonna, mia pietà
Willaert: Vecchie letrose
Sandrin: Doulce memoire
Ferrabosco: Exaudi Domine orationem meam; Ad Dominum cum tribularer
Dowland: Now, o now I needs must part; Can she excuse my wrongs
Wilbye: The Lady Oriana
Weelkes; As Vesta was from Latmos hills descending

Stile Antico

The long reign of Elizabeth I saw an unparalleled flourishing of musical composition. Elizabeth's personal patronage of William Byrd and Thomas Tallis, her attempts at religious tolerance, and her own love of music created an environment for a 'golden age' of music. Stile Antico explores the events of Elizabeth's life and reign; from antiphons recalling the glories of Henry VIII's Catholic court, to virtuosic madrigals using the latest continental innovations to praise the 'Virgin Queen', the programme celebrates the rich musical legacy of Elizabeth I.

Daniil Trifonov (piano)
London Philharmonic Orchestra
Vladimir Jurowski (conductor)

'My heartfelt homage to Tchaikovsky's wonderful talent': audiences in the 1920s were astonished when the modernist firebrand Stravinsky started adapting Tchaikovsky (tonight we hear his arrangements of 'Variation d'Aurore' and 'Bluebird pas-de-deux' from Sleeping Beauty). In fact, Stravinsky adored him, and his ballet The Fairy's Kiss transforms Tchaikovsky's music into something that magically fuses the spirit of both composers. And what better homage to the composer that Stravinsky revered so much than a performance of Tchaikovsky's sweeping First Piano Concerto, performed tonight by the incomparable Daniil Trifo.


MON 22:00 Free Thinking (b09w6lbd)
Festival 2018 - The One and the Many, Are We Afraid of Being Alone?

Author of A Book of Silence Sarah Maitland, medievalist John-Henry Clay, writer Lionel Shriver and Professor Barbara Taylor face the crowd to contemplate the many sides to solitude. Chaired by Rana Mitter with an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.

"If you're lonely when you're alone, you're in bad company". Was Jean Paul Sartre right or are we just hot-wired to prefer the company of others? Is it even possible - as the famous hermit St Cuthbert once did - to experience true seclusion in our age of hyperconnectivity? And as we flock to cities in increasing numbers why do so many of us feel so isolated and alone?

Sarah Maitland has lived by herself for the last twenty years on an isolated moor in northern Galloway, taking pleasure in silence and solitude. She is the author of numerous short stories, novels and non-fiction books including A Book of Silence.

Lionel Shriver's novels include The Standing Chandelier, The Mandibles, and We Need to Talk About Kevin. Her forthcoming collection of stories Property, explores how our possessions act as proxies for ourselves.

Barbara Taylor is a Professor of Humanities at Queen Mary University of London. Her current research includes attitudes to solitude in Enlightenment Britain and her books include On Kindness, written with Adam Phillips; and The Last Asylum.

John-Henry Clay is associate Professor in the Department of History at Durham University whose main research interests are in Frankish and Anglo-Saxon history and archaeology, and the themes of conversion and religious identity. John is also the author of historical fiction including The Lion and the Lamb and At the Ruin of the World.

Producer: Luke Mulhall.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b09w2vn6)
The Free Thinking Essay, A War of Words

A fashion show in Buenos Aires was put on for propaganda but football fixtures were deemed too risky. New Generation Thinker Dr Christopher Bannister, from the University of Manchester, looks at attempts to influence opinion about World War II in Latin America.
Although relatively untouched by violence, support in such a strategically important region was vital to the British war effort. Bombs and bullets were no use here, so fashion shows, book launches, soap operas and films became the British Ministry of Information's weapons of war as New Generation Thinker Dr Christopher Bannister, from the University of Manchester, explains.

Recorded with an audience at Sage Gateshead for BBC Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival.

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select ten academics each year who can turn their research into radio.

Producer: Jacqueline Smith.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09w27sg)
Claude Debussy (1862-1918), Fin de siecle

Donald Macleod explores a period of Debussy's life spent languishing in fin de siècle Paris clutching several masterpieces but no money

In the week of the centenary of the composer's death, Donald Macleod looks at the development of Debussy's career against the background of his turbulent personal life. 'At every crossroads in Debussy's life there was a woman', wrote his biographer Marcel Dietschy, and this week we meet them: from Mme Vasnier, the married singer with whom he conducted an affair during his early years as a struggling composer in Paris and Rome, to the bohemian Gaby Dupont, and his first wife Lily - who attempted suicide when Debussy left her for Emma Bardac. He would settle happily with Emma for the rest of his life, and in his prime, touring internationally as a conductor, wrote to her and their beloved daughter Chouchou, expressing his longing for home.

In the second programme this week Donald Macleod looks at the kind of man Debussy was in his thirties, as he faced the 20th century. During the years of writing his opera Pelléas et Mélisande he was earning very little, while being supported and looked after by his partner Gaby Dupont. But that didn't stop him from abruptly proposing to another woman, Therese Roger, while still living with Gaby. Abandoned by several of his friends at this point, one recalled that he was typically 'lost in thought in the company of his genius', while Gaby pawned their belongings so they had enough money to live on.

LSO St Luke's Debussy Series, Debussy and Pizzetti at LSO St Luke's

Fiona Talkington presents a series of concerts from LSO St Luke's in London featuring the music of two anniversary composers - Claude Debussy, the centenary of whose death falls at the end of this week, and the younger Italian Ildebrando Pizzetti, who died 50 years ago and greatly admired the music of his French colleague.

French pianist Cédric Tiberghien features in three of the concerts, and to launch the series he's joined today by Belgian violinist Lorenzo Gatto.

Debussy: Violin Sonata
Debussy: Étude No 9, pour les notes répétées
Debussy: Des pas sur la neige; Ce qu'a vu le Vent d'Ouest (from Preludes, Book 1)
Pizzetti: Violin Sonata
Lorenzo Gatto (violin)
Cédric Tiberghien (piano)

Here's a little quiz for you:
1. Which composer was described by a top Italian critic in 1921 (three years before Puccini's death) as 'without doubt the greatest musician in Italy today'?
2. Which composer's 'sensibility for the chorus' was rated 'comparable to that of Chopin for the piano or Ravel for the orchestra' by an Italian critic in 1942?
3. Which Italian composer apart from Puccini wrote one of the top five operas of the twentieth century, according to a poll of Italian critics in 1956?
The answer to all three questions is: Ildebrando Pizzetti.
This series offers a chance to discover some of Pizzetti's beautiful chamber and choral music alongside that of one of the composers he most admired: Claude Debussy.

Claude Debussy (1862-1918), The Sea

Donald Macleod explores a Donald Macleod explores a short period in Debussy's life which scandalised Paris and turned most of his friends against him

In the week of the centenary of the composer's death, Donald Macleod looks at the development of Debussy's career against the background of his turbulent personal life. 'At every crossroads in Debussy's life there was a woman', wrote his biographer Marcel Dietschy, and this week we meet them: from Mme Vasnier, the married singer with whom he conducted an affair during his early years as a struggling composer in Paris and Rome, to the bohemian Gaby Dupont, and his first wife Lily - who attempted suicide when Debussy left her for Emma Bardac. He would settle happily with Emma for the rest of his life, and in his prime, touring internationally as a conductor, wrote to her and their beloved daughter Chouchou, expressing his longing for home.

Donald Macleod explores a traumatic period in Debussy's life when Parisian society, and many of his close friends, turned against the composer for abandoning his wife in virtual poverty to run off with a woman of the world, the rich wife of a banker, Emma Bardac. The works he wrote during these first few years of the 20th century reflect both his state of mind and his environment.

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Sakari Oramo (conductor)

British composer Anna Clyne's 2015 orchestral work This Midnight Hour draws inspiration from the waltz and two poems, one by Juan Ramón Jiménez, where music is described as 'a naked woman running mad through the pure night'; the other by lover of the decadent Charles Baudelaire from his Fleurs du Mal (The Flowers of Evil) . Expect a magic-lantern show in music, a panorama of vivid, intoxicating nocturnal sounds.

Then Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang plays Britten's Violin Concerto, one of the profoundest of twentieth century concertos for the instrument, a work that has finally emerged from the shadows and one that Frang has made her own.

Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony No.6 concludes tonight's excursions in sound; but here it is a composer's infatuation with nature, sparked on his walks in the countryside around Vienna, that lights the score. A concert certain to display Sakari Oramo's range and superb rapport with his orchestra.

Festival 2018 - The One and the Many, Gangs: The Usual Suspects

From Brighton Rock and Goodfellas to the streets of Glasgow, London's East End and Chicago, what's it really like to be part of a gang and do gangs lead to organised crime? Matthew Sweet calls a meeting with Criminologist Alistair Fraser, journalist Symeon Brown and James Docherty of Scotland's Violent Reduction Unit

Symeon Brown describes himself as an 'activist/writer on youth, justice and urbanism' and is a journalist for Channel 4 News. He was senior researcher for The Guardian's investigation team on their in-house study, Reading the Riots about the English riots of 2011.

Alistair Fraser researches gang culture with a particular focus on youth 'gangs', street-based teenagers involved in criminal activity in Glasgow, Chicago and Hong Kong. His book Urban Legends: Gang Identity in the Post-Industrial City, was awarded the British Society of Criminology Book Prize.

James Docherty has worked with a leading children's charity helping young people on the cusp of organised crime and with the 'Violence Reduction Unit' in Glasgow. He advocates for change in the way we address the hidden cost of untreated trauma in our communities.

From Monarchs to Presidents. Joanne Paul on satire, flattery and document leaks in the C16 and C17 centuries and the relevance of strategies for telling truth to those who hold power over us now.
Five hundred years ago a miscalculation on this front could leave you without a head. Today, the personal stakes may not be as high, but globally, we've never had so much to lose. Renaissance historian and New Generation Thinker Dr Joanne Paul, from the University of Sussex, takes us back to the 16th and 17th century techniques for challenging the establishment and the writings of Gegorge Puttenham, Thomas More and Sir Thomas Elyot and debates over the merits of flattery versus honesty, and whether it was better to lead or to compel.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09w2fsg)
Claude Debussy (1862-1918), A New World Dawns

Donald Macleod explores Debussy's contented domestic life in the years leading up to the First World War

In the week of the centenary of the composer's death, Donald Macleod looks at the development of Debussy's career against the background of his turbulent personal life. 'At every crossroads in Debussy's life there was a woman', wrote his biographer Marcel Dietschy, and this week we meet them: from Mme Vasnier, the married singer with whom he conducted an affair during his early years as a struggling composer in Paris and Rome, to the bohemian Gaby Dupont, and his first wife Lily - who attempted suicide when Debussy left her for Emma Bardac. He would settle happily with Emma for the rest of his life, and in his prime, touring internationally as a conductor, wrote to her and their beloved daughter Chouchou, expressing his longing for home.

"Several days ago I became the father of a little girl. The joy of it has overwhelmed me a bit and still frightens me" wrote Debussy to a friend in 1905. Donald Macleod looks at the only period of Debussy's life when he was happily settled into domesticity, but, accepting invitations to conduct abroad to earn a better income, was taken away from his family more than he wanted.

Pizzetti's 'sensibility for the chorus' was rated 'comparable to that of Chopin for the piano or Ravel for the orchestra' by Italian critics, and in today's concert the BBC Singers perform some of his beautiful choral music, including his remarkable Requiem and the Shelley setting A Lament.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b09vz5lp)
The Free Thinking Essay, Kids With Guns

New Generation Thinker Emma Butcher looks at what we learn about war from the writing of child soldiers in The Battle of Trafalgar and the childhood writings of the Bronte family who were avid readers of newspaper accounts of battles and memoirs of soldiers. Does their fantasy fiction show an understanding of PTSD and the impact of battle on fighters before such conditions were diagnosed?

Dr Emma Butcher, literature historian at the University of Leicester, uncovers the history of Robert Sands, a powder monkey in the Battle of Trafalgar,. Does his experience muddy our sense of what childhood is ?

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select ten academics each year who can turn their research into radio

Producer: Torquil MacLeod.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b09w2fsj)
Nick Luscombe

Rare, rejoicing and radical sounds.

Rare: a new reissue of soul record Two Sisters from Bagdad, designed to be sold as an accompaniment to a musical theatre production in a Detroit church. It ended up running for just two weeks, while a basement flood later destroyed most of the unsold copies.

Radical: composer Henry Threadgill, whose jazz-ish aesthetic and complex musical systems have continued to break ground, has a new album out.

Rejoicing: wedding music from the borderlands of Azerbaijan and Iran, where women-only groups perform with voices and hand-drums - a 1500-year-old tradition captured for Late Junction earlier this year.

Plus, Riley: Nick selects a new recording by pianist Bruce Brubaker of Terry Riley's Keyboard Study No. 2 interspersed with music from the Codex Faenza, a 15th-century manuscript thought to be one of the earliest collections of keyboard music.

Produced by Chris Elcombe for Reduced Listening.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b09w2lqz)
Claude Debussy (1862-1918), Final Flowering

Donald Macleod looks at Debussy's final years, and a late burst of creativity in 1915 before a steep decline in his health

In the week of the centenary of the composer's death, Donald Macleod looks at the development of Debussy's career against the background of his turbulent personal life. 'At every crossroads in Debussy's life there was a woman', wrote his biographer Marcel Dietschy, and this week we meet them: from Mme Vasnier, the married singer with whom he conducted an affair during his early years as a struggling composer in Paris and Rome, to the bohemian Gaby Dupont, and his first wife Lily - who attempted suicide when Debussy left her for Emma Bardac. He would settle happily with Emma for the rest of his life, and in his prime, touring internationally as a conductor, wrote to her and their beloved daughter Chouchou, expressing his longing for home.

Donald Macleod looks at a remarkable three months towards the end of Debussy's life, spent at a villa on the Channel coast which was painted several times by Monet. He went there to escape wartime Paris in 1915 with his wife Emma and daughter Chouchou, and from his letters of the time we can tell that he fell in love with the place, enjoying its garden and expansive view of the sea. He felt so at home there that despite already being seriously ill and increasingly anxious about the war, his new environment encouraged a final burst of creativity.

Messiaen: Les offrandes oubliées

Debussy's music of water, wind and light surrounds colourful works by composers at different ends of their lives. Mozart's 27th piano concerto was to be his last, yet despite its subdued qualities, the finale is based on a song welcoming the summer. Messiaen's meditation for orchestra dates back to his early years after leaving conservatoire. It's a stunningly beautiful work that foreshadows a lifelong devotion to the mystical connection between music and faith.
