Building a Library: Britten's Winter Words, Op 52, with Kate Kennedy.

Britten composed Winter Words, his eight setting of Thomas Hardy, in 1953 at a time when he was also working on his operas Gloriana and The Turn of the Screw. The style of Winter Words does, however, contrast with that of the two operas in its austere textures, while allowing the Hardy texts to be projected with particular clarity. After the opening song, Day Close in November, comes Midnight on the Great Western, which even includes train-whistle noises. Then comes The Wagtail and Baby, The Little Old Table and The Choirmaster's burial (or The Tenor Man's Story), in which the departed master's favourite hymn-tune 'Mount Ephraim' is woven into the texture. Proud Songsters is followed by At the Railway Station, Upway (or The Convict and the Boy With the Violin), and the whole cycle ends with Before Life and After, a powerful expression of Britten's fascination with the conflict between innocence and experience.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b0b2r2cp)
Gabriela Montero, Menahem Pressler, Deborah Pritchard, Composer-Artists

With Tom Service

What's happening in Venezuela and how does it relate to its famous El Sistema music education system? With the death of its founder Jose Antonio Abreu and Sistema becoming ever closer to the government amid a worsening economic situation, as well as protests and an upcoming election, what is the future for El Sistema and music in Venezuela? Tom talks to Geoff Baker who has written extensively on the programme.

He also meets Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero, known not just for her acclaimed performances on the classical concert stage and incredible improvisations, but also her fierce political activism in defence of her Venezuelan people. Tom talks to Gabriela about how she sees music and society in Venezuela today, why she feels music without a message is banal and why artists have a responsibility to use their voices to affect change.

Tom meets composer Deborah Pritchard in her studio amongst her scores and paintings to talk about the relationship between music and visual arts. A synaesthete and an artist as well as a composer, Deborah talks about how art and colour permeate her musical life, while the writer and broadcaster Katy Hamilton picks her favourite 5 composer artists from musical history.

And 94 years young and still performing all over the world, the pianist Menahem Pressler tells Tom about his philosophy of music making and how he can sum it all up in one word - love.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b2jdyd)
Inside Music with Margaret Cookhorn

A new series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.

Today, bassoonist and principal contrabassoonist of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Margaret Cookhorn shares her excitement about a rare experience - playing the contrabassoon in chamber music by Mozart. She also analyses how Richard Strauss brings exotic flavours to the orchestra in his take on Salome's Dance of the Seven Veils, and explains her fascination for patterns in the music of Benjamin Britten. Margaret's choices range from a miniature by Elgar played by violinist Nigel Kennedy to part of Messiaen's massive Turangalila Symphony, plus vocal acrobatics from Ella Fitzgerald and Bobby McFerrin.

At 2 o'clock Margaret introduces her Must Listen piece - something she thinks everyone should hear at least once in their life - as she says: "it contains one of the most exciting and rhythmic endings to a symphony ever written".

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.

SAT 17:00 J to Z (b0b2jdyl)
Eddie Henderson in concert from Birmingham

Julian Joseph is onstage from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire to present a concert with trumpet great Eddie Henderson and his quartet. Henderson first got worldwide recognition for his part in Herbie Hancock's Mwandishi group in the early '70s. Since then he has played with huge array of the greatest names in Jazz including Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Kenny Barron and many more. He is joined by a quartet made up of long time collaborators; fellow New Yorker Bruce Barth on piano, Arnie Somogyi on bass and Stephen Keogh on drums.

In conversation with Julian Joseph, Henderson talks about how Louis Armstrong gave him his first ever trumpet lesson and Miles Davis' memorable reaction when he told him he didn't play 'correct'.

Produced by Miranda Hinkley and Russell Finch for Somethin' Else.


SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b0b2jdyn)
Un Ballo in Maschera

Donald Macleod presents a broadcast from Leeds Grand Theatre of Verdi's 3-act masterpiece "Un Ballo in Maschera" (A Masked Ball) in Tim Albery's new production for Opera North. He's joined by the expert in 19th century opera Dr Flora Willson, Lecturer in Music at King's College London.

The opera is based, somewhat loosely, on the real life assassination of King Gustav III of Sweden in 1792. To beat the censors Verdi had to agree to transposing the action from Stockholm to Boston. This production, however, follows the modern trend to bring Un Ballo in Maschera back to Europe once again. King Gustavo is in love with the wife of his friend and advisor, Count Anckarstrom. Ulrica, the fortune-teller, informs the King that the next person to shake hands with him will be the person who will betray and kill him. When subsequently Anckarstrom walks in and shakes his hand King Gustav pours scorn on the prophesy since he knows his friend would not murder him. So he thinks.

The cast is led by the brilliant Mexican tenor Rafael Rojas.

Count Anckarstroem ..... Phillip Rhodes (baritone)
Amelia ..... Adrienn Miksch (soprano)

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b0b2jdyr)

What's the difference between the sheep found in art and real sheep?

In a sheep bell rich melange, we go in hunt of the real thing, with sheep farmer, author of world best-sellers "Driving Over Lemons" and ex-Genesis member, Chris Stewart, and academic, writer and potential Bo-Peeper Alexandra Harris.

Those famous shepherds watching their flocks by night were, of course, following in a great tradition - guarding sheep, leading them to pasture, and then probably killing their babies - just like Able, the first shepherd.

From ancient times, the shepherd and the sheep they care for, have been the most consistent of rural sights - they appear in poetry, plays and painting, inaccurately, romanticised, and highly symbolic.

The closest Alexandra Harris has been to real sheep has been wandering past a few woolly bundles on the South Downs.
She is, of course, more familiar with the Pastoral in art - from the Greek idyll to Shakespeare's 'A Winter's Tale'.
To her - "shepherding suggests knowing the real facts of life, wisdom of all time coming down through the ages".

Chris Stewart, who left the UK 25 years ago to pursue a new life as a shepherd in Spain, has 40 plus years of shepherding under his belt. He is more than familiar with the sheep's ways - their smells, herd mentality, incontinence and vulnerability.
He knows how to feed one, find one and kill one, when necessary, although he still loves them dearly.
To help Alexandra get to grips with the reality of the pastoral life Chris suggests 'Get your own flock of sheep and become a shepherdess....'

Enter Paco - hardy Alpujarran mountain shepherd, bachelor and philosopher - although when asked what he thinks about whilst watching his flocks all day, he can only answer 'No, pienso nada!'

Let the sheep bells fly....

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0948jkv)
Sebastian Barry

Sebastian Barry's great-grand-father was a traditional Irish musician, who played on the wooden flute and piccolo. His mother was an actress at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin; his aunt Mary O'Hara had a huge career as a singer and harpist with her own series on the BBC. Little surprise then that Sebastian Barry's writing is musical in the widest sense; full of the rich music of everyday speech. It's an impressive body of work: fourteen plays, two volumes of poetry, and nine novels. Two of his novels, "The Secret Scripture" and the latest, "Days Without End", have won the coveted Costa Book of the Year prize. When he thanked the judges earlier this year, Barry declared: "You have made me crazy happy from the top of my head to my toes in a way that is a little bit improper at sixty-one."

In Private Passions, Sebastian Barry talks to Michael Berkeley about the "gaps" in Irish history he has explored in his books: areas which are touchy, taboo, and perhaps deliberately forgotten now, such as the fate of those who were Catholic, but loyal to Britain. He reveals too that his latest novel, a love story between two young soldiers, was inspired by his son coming out as gay.

Music choices include Bruch's Violin Concerto; Handel's "Judas Maccabaeus"; Alfred Deller singing "Three Ravens"; Bach's Cello Suites; and his aunt Mary O'Hara singing a song written by Sebastian Barry's own mother.

The Art of Forgetting

As part of Radio 3's Why Music? The Key to Memory weekend in collaboration with the Wellcome Collection this week's Words and Music is called "The Art of Forgetting", Actors Claire Benedict (The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency) and David Neilson (Coronation Street) read literary musings on forgetting and forgetfulness. With prose and poetry from Ogden Nash, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Philip K Dick, Milan Kundera and others. Music includes Debussy, Purcell, Philip Glass, Villa-Lobos and Jacques Brel. The programme starts with humour and gravitates to more serious matters, exploring what an essential human quality it is to forget. The Art of Forgetting embraces the story of "S", the Russian mnemonist whose memory demonstrated no distinct limits, a lost soul who was simply unable to forget.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b0b2jhhj)
The Other Iran

Harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani visits Azerbaijan, to explore how the creation of a border in 1828 shaped two very different musical cultures.

Esfahani, born in Iran but raised in the USA, has long wondered whether he could ever have become a western classical musician had his family stayed in Tehran. Yet just over the border in Azerbaijan, the art-form has a very different status.

In the early 19th century a rising Russia and declining Persia went to war. In the 1828 treaty of Turkmenchay, the Azeri territories were split in two, the north annexed to Russia, the south remaining in Persia. Today, the people of this northern half, now the Republic of Azerbaijan, enjoy a wealth of classical music culture - from the opera houses to the symphony orchestra, to uncovered women singing solo - as well as rich collaborations with their own traditional culture. Yet for their southern neighbours, in what is now the Islamic Republic of Iran, this culture is almost beyond reach.

For Esfahani, who is Azeri on his father's side, his possible futures had he stayed at home are mapped out across this national border. He heads to Azerbaijan's capital, Baku, to ask what happened to create such a vibrant classical music culture in the north. He plays Purcell with soprano Farida Mammedova and begins to understand Azerbaijan's place at the crossroads of Asia and Europe, of a Western cultural presence fast-tracked by Russian rule and a 19th-century oil boom. He sits in on rehearsals of a new ballet celebrating the centenary of one of the country's most celebrated composers, Gara Garayev, the product of a Soviet education system in which both Leopold Rostropovich and Shostakovich had leading roles.

Over the same period, Iran's relationship with western music has been more problematic - at times supported by the ruling classes but never absorbed in quite the same way, and at various points since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, discouraged or banned completely. The familiar image of a religiously conservative and anti-western regime might explain this away, but the truth is more complex, as Mahan discovers in conversations with conductor Ali Rahbari and Idin Samimi, a composer in Tehran.

As Mahan peers through the border fence at a country he hasn't set foot in for over 20 years, is there cause for optimism that Iran may come to embrace the music he loves, as Azeris north of the border have? Could Mahan himself ever play in Tehran?

Elizabeth will glide seamlessly with them between the sounds of electronic dance music clubs, art house films, grimy basement venues and classical concert halls. Expect ambient soundscapes, electronic experimentation, surprising collaborations and brand new sound worlds to get completely lost in. Discover composers who are rewriting the rules and changing the way we think about contemporary and traditional forms of music.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), The Beginnings Of A Lifelong Bond

Donald Macleod explores the lifelong friendship between Brahms and the violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim, and the music of genius that resulted.

Throughout his life, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) enjoyed the close friendship of two kindred musical spirits: the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim. Yet whilst his relationship with the former is much-pored over - friends, colleagues, maybe lovers? - his deep musical connection with Joachim is often passed over. This week, Donald Macleod explores the adventures, trials and tribulations that Brahms and Joachim encountered through their four decade-long association and the musical masterpieces for violin that resulted. Donald presents the three movements of the Violin Concerto across three days in three utterly beguiling, and very different, recordings by Vadim Gluzman, David Oistrakh and Janine Jansen; plus, Friday brings a complete performance of the often-overlooked Double Concerto for Violin and Cello. In between, we'll hear all three violin sonatas in their entirety and a host of jewels from Brahms' chamber output - plus a rare piano-duet performance of his First Symphony by the Duo Crommelynck, and on Friday, a guest appearance from Brahms and Joachim themselves.

The week begins with a knock at the door. Brahms meets the titan of German music, Robert Schumann; an encounter set up by Joseph Joachim. Music, song and more than a little drinking was to follow.

The RPS Awards are the UK's most prestigious awards for live classical music, and this year's shortlists are particularly wide-ranging. Over 50 musicians, ensembles and organisations nationwide are in contention for this year's awards, which celebrate outstanding music making in 2017. The shortlists reveal a kaleidoscope of musical talent, invention and imagination, whether in the concert hall or on the opera stage, in the community or online, in written word, film or for the first time, via virtual reality.

These independent awards were set up in 1989 to celebrate the outstanding musical achievements of both young and established, British and International, musicians

The Awards are peer-judged. Each category is decided by an eminent jury from the music profession. The list of winners since 1989 reads as a roll call of the finest living musicians

The awards honour a broad sweep of live music making including categories for performers, composers, inspirational arts organisations learning, participation and engagement. There is no restriction on the nationality of recipients, but the awards are for achievements within the United Kingdom

The Royal Philharmonic Society has been at the heart of music for over 200 years and is dedicated to creating a future for music. It is one of the world's oldest music societies and has a thriving membership.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b0b2jr0s)
To the Barricades!, One Book Above All Others

The path students took to the events of 1968 was signposted by cultural markers. There were books to read and films to watch (often derived from literary sources) and each anticipated and shaped the response to political events that would lead to student explosions in Paris, Prague, London and Chicago.

Michael Goldfarb remembers the books he and his contemporaries read and the films they watched. He traces the way ideas in literature and cinema are absorbed into the mind and heart and become shapers of action. He also looks at how these books continue to influence those who were in the streets in 1968.
Using his trademark blend of historical research and memoir he recreates a time when, either side of the iron curtain, youth were united not just by music but by books and movies. Inspired by them, they risked everything to try and overthrow the existing order.

Episode 1: One Book Above All Others: Joseph Heller's Catch 22 was arguably the most influential novel published in the 60s. Anti-war, anti-hierarchy, and hysterically funny.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b2m0zl)
Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), Breakdown and Renewal

Donald Macleod explores the lifelong friendship between Brahms and the great violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim - and the music of genius that resulted. Today, heartache for the pair as their mentor, Robert Schumann, suffers a catastrophic breakdown.

Throughout his life, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) enjoyed the close friendship of two kindred musical spirits: the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim. Yet whilst his relationship with the former is much-pored over - friends, colleagues, maybe lovers? - his deep musical connection with Joachim is often passed over. This week, Donald Macleod explores the adventures, trials and tribulations that Brahms and Joachim encountered through their four decade-long association and the musical masterpieces for violin that resulted. Donald presents the three movements of the Violin Concerto across three days in three utterly beguiling, and very different, recordings by Vadim Gluzman, David Oistrakh and Janine Jansen; plus, Friday brings a complete performance of the often-overlooked Double Concerto for Violin and Cello. In between, we'll hear all three violin sonatas in their entirety and a host of jewels from Brahms' chamber output - plus a rare piano-duet performance of his First Symphony by the Duo Crommelynck, and on Friday, a guest appearance from Brahms and Joachim themselves.

After a year feeling on top of the world, Brahms and Joachim's world came crashing down when their mentor, Robert Schumann, suffered a catastrophic breakdown in 1854. Brahms would then deal with further heartache as his First Piano Concerto is ravaged by critics. Featuring the composer's lyrical and much-loved Violin Sonata no. 1.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0b2mfh5)
To the Barricades!, French Philosophy

The path students took to the events of 1968 was signposted by cultural markers. There were books to read and films to watch (often derived from literary sources) and each anticipated and shaped the response to political events that would lead to student explosions in Paris, Prague, London and Chicago.
Michael Goldfarb remembers the books he and his contemporaries read and the films they watched. He traces the way ideas in literature and cinema are absorbed into the mind and heart and become shapers of action. He also looks at how these books continue to influence those who were in the streets in 1968.
Using his trademark blend of historical research and memoir he recreates a time when, either side of the iron curtain, youth were united not just by music but by books and movies. Inspired by them, they risked everything to try and overthrow the existing order.

Episode 2: French Philosophy: By the Sixties Sartre had become something of a cliche but in France and elsewhere the philosophy of his friend Maurice Merleau-Ponty - wide ranging, interested in time and perception - was the secret influence on students.

Bringing us back down to earth in a spiritual trance, a track from Chants Mystics d'Algeria by Berber musician Houria Aichi. Plus composer and producer Anna Meredith's Concerto for Beatboxer and Orchestra highlights the capabilities of the human voice box as an instrument.

Also in the show is Ramon Humet, a Catalan composer who shows his Japanese influences in the chamber work Four Zen Gardens, a suitably poised and elegant series of bells, bamboo and gongs for three percussionists. Plus a historic recording at The Library of Congress of one of Beethoven's late string quartets.

Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), The Break-Up

Donald Macleod explores the lifelong friendship between Brahms and the great violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim - and the music of genius that resulted.

Throughout his life, Johannes Brahms (1833-1897) enjoyed the close friendship of two kindred musical spirits: the pianist Clara Schumann and the violinist Joseph Joachim. Yet whilst his relationship with the former is much-pored over - friends, colleagues, maybe lovers? - his deep musical connection with Joachim is often passed over. This week, Donald Macleod explores the adventures, trials and tribulations that Brahms and Joachim encountered through their four decade-long association and the musical masterpieces for violin that resulted. Donald presents the three movements of the Violin Concerto across three days in three utterly beguiling, and very different, recordings by Vadim Gluzman, David Oistrakh and Janine Jansen; plus, Friday brings a complete performance of the often-overlooked Double Concerto for Violin and Cello. In between, we'll hear all three violin sonatas in their entirety and a host of jewels from Brahms' chamber output - plus a rare piano-duet performance of his First Symphony by the Duo Crommelynck, and on Friday, a guest appearance from Brahms and Joachim themselves.

Once upon a time, Joachim was considered as promising a composer as Brahms, before his genius at the violin consumed all his time. Today we get a rare glimpse at Joachim the composer, with his dazzling Second Violin Concerto, "in the Hungarian Style", before Donald Macleod details how he and Brahms devastatingly fell out after Joachim's acrimonious divorce from his wife Amalie.

Thursday - Opera Matinee: Rimsky-Korsakov's The Snow Maiden

Penny Gore presents this week's Opera Matinee; a performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's The Snow Maiden, in a production from Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre. The Snow Maiden has been raised in perpetual winter by her father, Frost and mother, Spring. Envious of the mortals in the village nearby, she yearns to experience their longings, passions and human emotions, and begs her parents to let her join them. They agree to let her be adopted by Bobyl-Bakula and his wife, with tragic consequences. A gorgeous and lyrical evocation of the natural world, Rimsky Korsakov's delightfully colourful, folk-inspired opera is based on a well-loved Russian fairy tale.

To end their season, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra enter into Sibelius' world by inviting a quartet of Finnish folk musicians to Glasgow. Playing with the BBC SSO in a specially arranged piece of music, the Finnish folk musicians explore the themes that Sibelius would have heard, and has incorporated into, his Choral Symphony: Kullervo. Kullervo is one of his finest masterpieces in which Sibelius uses one of Finland's most ancient of poems: the Kalevala. It is a story of the tragedy of a young hero and a love more terrible than war. One of Scandinavia's finest choirs and two outstanding singers join the BBC SSO in the city halls in Glasgow for this live broadcast conducted by their Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard.

Presented by Jamie MacDougall.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b0b2mh67)
To the Barricades!, Marx, Mao, Marcuse

The path students took to the events of 1968 was signposted by cultural markers. There were books to read and films to watch (often derived from literary sources) and each anticipated and shaped the response to political events that would lead to student explosions in Paris, Prague, London and Chicago.

Michael Goldfarb remembers the books he and his contemporaries read and the films they watched. He traces the way ideas in literature and cinema are absorbed into the mind and heart and become shapers of action. He also looks at how these books continue to influence those who were in the streets in 1968.

Using his trademark blend of historical research and memoir he recreates a time when, either side of the iron curtain, youth were united not just by music but by books and movies. Inspired by them, they risked everything to try and overthrow the existing order.

Episode 4:. Marx, Mao, Marcuse: In 1968 young people ached for revolution the way they ached for sexual romance. Urgently and without a great deal of rational thought. The catch phrases of the three Ms - A revolution is not a dinner party; The philosophers have only interpreted the world, the point is to change it; Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves - played well on the barricades.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b0b2lw8v)
Max Reinhardt with Jonny Trunk

Max is joined by record collector, DJ and broadcaster Jonny Trunk who reports back on his trip to meet a fellow collector Lucy Woodward, owner of 17,000 vinyl records. Alongside everything from rare early music recordings to obscure library music releases, Lucy's specialist area is transmission discs, the music that accompanied the test card screen on your television in the days before 24 hour broadcasts. Jonny delves into the mind of the collector asking where the interest comes from, how to shop for rare records and why a complete set is so satisfying.

Donning his best beret, Max celebrates two icons of French chanson Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf, and there's afrocentric grooves from alt-keyboard player Jessica Lauren.

Donald Macleod ends this week celebrating the unique relationship between Johannes Brahms and Joseph Joachim - and the musical riches that emerged from it - with the story of the pair's reconciliation, culminating in the effervescent Double Concerto for violin and cello - the last orchestral work Brahms would ever write.

NGA Showcase: Andrei Ionita plays Bach and Ligeti and Mariam Batsashvili plays Schubert and Liszt

Georgia Mann presents the cellist Andrei Ionita and the pianist Mariam Batsashvili in a New Generation Artist Showcase at Turner Sims Southampton.
In this concert, recorded last week as part of the hall's prestigious international concert series, two of Radio 3's current New Generation Artists play solo music by Bach, Schubert, Liszt and Ligeti. From the dark, intimate world of Bach's Cello Suite to the drama of Liszt's Dante-inspired Fantasia, these two remarkable artists promise solo performances of originality, virtuosity and soulfulness in equal measure.

During the concert, Georgia will talk to Mariam (who hails from Georgia) and Andrei (who was born in Rumania) about the music they are playing, finding their own musical voice and about the pros and cons of winning major international competitions.
Since its launch in 1999 the BBC's renowned New Generation Artists scheme has brought to the public's attention many young musicians on the threshold of glittering international careers. Both of tonight's soloists are recent first prize winners - cellist Andrei Ionita at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2015, and Mariam Batsashvili at the 10th Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Utrecht in 2014. Both are artists of questing originality.
This concert is one of a series of showcase concerts taking place around the UK this month.

Episode 5: Race: Is always a central part of all politics in the US. The world of literature is not immune to being flung into its crucible. 1968 was the year when Who has the authority to write about race became central to politics? In America, William Styron, a white Southerner, close friend of James Baldwin, won the Pulitzer Prize for his novel about a slave revolt, The Confessions of Nat Turner. The book was then the subject of a vilification campaign. In this essay he looks at how the racial tensions in America's streets played out in the high cultural world of literature.


FRI 23:00 Music Planet (b0b2mht1)
Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Lopa Kothari presents a session from the celebrated South African choral group Ladysmith Black Mambazo. This week's Road Trip takes a closer look at the music of Palestine, and we have a Mixtape from Canadian singer Melissa Laveaux.

The legendary South African a capella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo are currently touring the UK. Formed in the early 1960s, the group takes its name from founder Joseph Shabalala's hometown of Ladysmith and two symbols of strength: the Black ox and Mambazo, the Zulu word for a chopping axe. The group is known for its mastery of isicathamiya, a vocal style that was popular entertainment in the mining hostels of South Africa. They are best known to mainstream audiences for providing the vocals on Paul Simon's groundbreaking Graceland album of 1986.

To mark the 70th anniversary earlier this week of the Nakba, Reem Kelani is our Road Trip guide to historical recordings from Palestine. And in this week's Mixtape, singer-songwriter Melissa Laveaux shares music from Jose Gonzalez and Mia Doi Todd, Creole folk from Réunion's Alain Péters and the psychedelic cumbia of Colombia's Meridian Brothers.

Listen to the world - Music Planet, Radio 3's new world music show presented by Lopa Kothari and Kathryn Tickell, brings us the best roots-based music from across the globe - with live sessions from the biggest international names and the freshest emerging talent; classic tracks and new releases; and every week a bespoke Road Trip from a different corner of the globe, taking us to the heart of its music and culture.
