SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b0b5wp15)
Music and language in Northern Ireland

Presented by Kate Molleson

Kate's in Northern Ireland this week for the latest in a continuing series about music and language around the British Isles. In Belfast and the surrounding countryside of Co Antrim and Co Down she meets the composers Deirdre McKay, Brian Irvine and Una Monaghan, the Ulster Scots poet and singer Willie Drennan, and the Irish language teacher Linda Ervine.

Kate also talks to the mezzo soprano Anne Sofie von Otter about the sense of the Scandinavian north she finds both in the music she sings and in her own voice, and how she's embracing the physical changes to her voice as she grows older.

Plus a new book which takes stock of classical music in 2018, with a series of essays which tackle some of the problems and challenges around issues of finance, access to music education and making a career in music. Kate talks to the editors of The Classical Music Industry, Chris Dromey and Julia Haferkorn.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b5slgt)
Inside Music with Douglas Boyd

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today conductor and former oboe player Douglas Boyd explores the subtle difference between metronome and pulse, and introduces pieces by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Richard Strauss that attempt to make sense out the chaos of war.

Other choices include the mysterious opening of Mozart's Requiem, jewel-like miniatures by Webern and Schumann, and music by Ravel played by a pianist whose energy and panache seems to have an effect on everyone she works with.

At 2 o'clock Douglas reveals his Must Listen piece - a symphonic slow movement that builds from tiny fragments of melody to an emotionally searing climax.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b0b56lnp)
1993 in film

Matthew Sweet takes this week's launch of new Jurassic World film, "Jurassic World-Fallen Kingdom", to look back at the beginning of the franchise and the film music world of 1993 - a year which film critic Roger Ebert described as an annus mirabilis for cinema.

Films from 1993 featured in the programme include: "Tombstone"; "The Age of Innocence"; "Philadelphia"; "The Fugitive"; "The Piano"; "Shadowlands"; "The Firm"; "Farewell My Concubine"; "Schindler's List"; "Groundhog Day" and "Jurassic Park".

The programme also features music by Michael Giacchino for the new Jurassic World film - "Fallen Kingdom".

Beats & Pieces Big Band in concert

A weekly programme celebrating the best in jazz - past, present and future.

Julian Joseph presents the high energy Beats & Pieces Big Band in concert. A big band for the 21st century, the Manchester-based group's use of electronics sets their sound apart from that of the traditional big band. They are led by composer and musical director, Ben Cottrell.

Plus, pianist Ivo Neame shares some of the music that has inspired him over the years including pieces from Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter.

Produced by Miranda Hinkley for Somethin' Else.

The star cast is led by soprano Anna Netrebko, as Lady Macbeth, who is driven by her formidable ambition for her husband Macbeth, sung by baritone Željko Lučić, to become King. Verdi's score bursts with energy and drive, full of eerie silences and atmosphere, and expansive melodies. Recorded earlier this Spring, Antonio Pappano conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera, Covent Garden in the revival of Phyllida Lloyd's 2002 production.

Sunday - Elizabeth Alker

Email 3breakfast@bbc.co.uk.


SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (b0b5t053)
Sarah Walker

Today Sarah Walker presents a characteristically wide range of music including orchestral music from Brahms and Scarlatti's "Cat's Fugue" sonata. As well as Mozart's Symphony No. 18, Sarah delves into less familiar territory with music from Wilhelm Peterson-Berger and Arnold Bax. Her Sunday escape this week is from Ravel's "Mother Goose".


SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0b5syfy)
Richard Smith

Dr Richard Smith heads an organisation called Patients Know Best, and having been editor of the British Medical Journal for most of his career, he now enjoys stirring things up in a provocative weekly blog there. Among his targets: the sinister power of drug companies - and the not unrelated tendency of doctors to over-treat illnesses like cancer. When he's not stirring things up at home, Richard Smith is in Bangladesh, working for a charity trying to prevent the terrible human loss caused by infected drinking water. He has also worked as a television doctor and at one point answered readers' letters for Women's Realm.

In Private Passions, Richard Smith tells Michael Berkeley about his strong belief that doctors and patients collude to hide the truth about disease and death, and explains why he gives a talk called provocatively: "Death: the Upside". He reveals too how music has sustained him at crisis points in his life.

Choices include Bach's cello suites, the Stan Tracey Quartet, Shostakovich, Messiaen, Haydn, Deborah Pritchard, and sacred music by the medieval composer Hermannus Contractus.

Schubert Die schöne Müllerin, D.795 (new English translation by Jeremy Sams)
Toby Spence (tenor)
Christopher Glynn (piano)

Two of the UK's leading interpreters perform Schubert's The Beautiful Maid of the Mill, a cycle of twenty songs which chart the course of love from first awakening through joy, false hopes and the appearance of a rival suitor to despair and death.


SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show (b0b5syg0)
Music in a warmer climate

Belinda Sykes delves into Arabic influences on music of the Iberian Peninsular - connections, parallels and differences between the various secular repertoires of medieval Spain.

The musical and poetic forms that developed in Muslim Spain are some of the most important, pioneering and influential of the Arab world. They probably influenced the music of medieval Europe and the Middle East, and have formed the basis for one of the most enduring traditions of classical Arabic music surviving today. As Europe struggled to emerge from its Dark Ages, the Arabian empire was enjoying a golden age. Al-'Andalus ('land of the vandals' in the Arabic tongue) was its westernmost territory and was an outstanding melting pot of culture. The Jews and Christians of Muslim Spain, like their oriental counterparts, lived in comparative peace and tolerance alongside the conquering Arabs. Their cultural convivencia led to a great flourishing of philosophy, mathematics, sciences, architecture, decoration, craftsmanship, the arts, fashion, attention to diet and hygiene, etiquette, diplomacy, international communications and free trade. The programme will include songs by the Andalusian Sufi poet - Ibn al-'Arabi, the Spanish-Hebrew poet Todros Ibn Abulafia, and the daughter of Cordoba's Caliph Wallada Bint al-Mustakfi.

SUN 16:00 Choir and Organ (b0b6sysv)
Roderick Williams introduces music for many voices

In today's programme we hear Joseph Haydn aiming to repeat the success of his hit oratorio, The Creation; Richard Strauss sends a heartfelt cry of hope and light from the midst of Hitler's Third Reich; and we take a trip to the underworld, where there's a party going on. Plus the earworm melodies of Puccini's Messa di Gloria.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08ch0hk)
What you see is what you hear?

Tom Service asks whether the way we see composers depicted in art influences the way we hear their music.
With particular reference to three pictures that you can see on the Listening Service page of the Radio 3 website for this programme - Hildegard of Bingen, Bach and Beethoven.
Rethink music with The Listening Service.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b0b5sz5m)
Heroines

Readings by Tuppence Middleton and Patsy Ferran and a selection of music, from Ethel Smyth to Janelle Monáe , Rokia Traoré to Fanny Mendelssohn, Respighi to Robert Wyatt in praise of heroines: some fictional, like Sally Bowles and Scheherazade, some historical, like Grace Darling and Joan of Arc, some inspirational, like Malala Yousafzai and Rosa Parks, and some simply anonymous and everyday - like poet Gillian Clarke's mother rescuing a drowning child or WB Yeats' Song of an Old Mother.

On a day when the cities of Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London have seen processions of women commemorating 100 years of Votes for Women in a new artwork commissioned by 14-18 Now, Radio 3's Words and Music explores the idea of what a heroine is and the range of qualities which have been praised from patience to protest, from caring to cunning.

We begin with a Concerto for Violin Horn and Piano by Ethel Smyth, the composer who had written The March of the Women in 1910, which became the official anthem of the Women's Social and Political Union. This is followed by folk musician Eliza Carthy's solo version of the Pankhurst Anthem, a new piece commissioned by BBC Radio 3 from composer Lucy Pankhurst which uses the words of suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst. But if we begin with campaigning energy should we end in a celebratory mood?

Producer: Harry Parker.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b084cs44)
Langston Hughes at the Third

In 1964 - a presidential election year in the United States - the Third Programme broadcast an epic series about African-American life called 'The Negro in America'. In a coup for the BBC, it was co-produced by the great poet of the 1920s Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes. His series brought to the airwaves a range of sounds and voices of the Civil Rights struggle, of jazz music and black literature: sounds and voices that had rarely been heard in Britain. 'The Negro in America' is also the tale of an unlikely relationship.

'The BBC,' Hughes said, 'I love it!'. But behind this affection for an institution lies a close friendship between the American poet and his British co-producer, Geoffrey Bridson. The media historian Professor David Hendy has spent many years studying the original series and how the two men came to make it together. Now, he pieces together, for the first time, the story of 'Langston Hughes at the Third'.

David travelled to New York to record interviews with jazz pianist Randy Weston, family friend MaryLouise Patterson, cultural historian Professor Michele Hilmes, and curator Steven Fullwood from the Schomburg Center.

The programme includes highlights from the original series:
Remarkable on-location recordings of riots in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963;
writers James Baldwin and LeRoi Jones (later known as Amiri Baraka); jazz musicians Cannonball Adderley and Cecil Taylor

Much has changed in America since 1964, but it is surprising how much of the discourse from the original series remains relevant today.

SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b079lydd)
King Lear

When better than now to make a drama about "the division of the kingdom"? A new production of Shakespeare's great tragedy with a Scottish cast headed by Ian McDiarmid as Lear and Bill Paterson as Gloucester.

Lear is a very old king with a dynastic problem: three daughters and no sons.
In dividing the kingdom between his children, Lear's reasoning is admirable: he wants to hand over the kingdom to his daughters so that "future strife / May be prevented now." But in doing so he sets in train a chain of events that lead to madness, self-discovery and the disintegration of the kingdom.

SUN 23:30 The Glory of Polyphony (b0b5t0kg)
Josquin and Isaac

Peter Phillips continues his six-part series celebrating the Glory of Polyphony.

Polyphony (literally, 'many sounds') reached its peak in choral music during the historic Renaissance period. Peter Phillips first discovered its magnificent sound world at the age of 16 and ever since has devoted his life to performing and recording it. He even formed his record label and choir -The Tallis Scholars - to share the music with others. In each programme in this series, Peter will share his knowledge of and passion for Renaissance choral music by exploring the lives and works of two very contrasting composers. He'll showcase their unique styles against the social backdrops of the late 15th to early 17th centuries by telling some of their personal stories and explaining the original purpose of the music. He'll also explore the music's meditative qualities and its power to affect worshippers and audiences past and present.

In this second programme, Peter will delve into the lives and music of two contemporary but contrasting Flemish composers: Josquin des Prez and Heinrich Isaac.

Flemish musicians were in great demand in the 15th and 16th Centuries, and many were brought across the Alps to Italy as young choristers and remained there their entire careers. What became known as the Franco-Flemish vocal style influenced the development of religious music across the whole of Europe.
Josquin was employed in Rome, Milan and Ferrara, and his fame spread far and wide - he was greatly admired by Martin Luther, who described Josquin's intimately crafted music as being "as free as the song of the finch".

The widely-travelled Isaac worked for three of Europe's most powerful families - the Habsburgs, the Estes and the Medicis. Full of pomp and ceremony, his music is vastly different to Josquin's; Isaac was the man for the great occasion. The two men once competed for the same job in Ferrara, but Isaac was thought to have been "of a better disposition among his companions and will compose new works more often.".

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b5t292)
Charles Gounod (1818 - 1893), An artist's destiny

Donald Macleod explores Charles Gounod's student years in Italy and the sacred and symphonic music these formative years later informed, including his Symphony No.1 in D.

The importance of Charles Gounod was readily acknowledged by the generations who succeeded him. A prolific composer, his contribution to song repertoire led Ravel to call him the "founder of the French melodie". Bizet, Massenet and Saint-Saens all took inspiration from his operas, while the body of religious music he produced is so substantial, it has yet to be properly assessed. Given his standing among peers it's perhaps unfair that his reputation faded so quickly after his death in 1893. In more recent times his reputation has recovered but still, rather unfairly, rests on a handful of works. This week, therefore, presents a rare chance to delve into the surprising breadth of Gounod's musical preoccupations.

Born in 1818 into an artistic family, Gounod found success early on in 1839 as a winner of the prestigious Prix de Rome competition. The years he spent in Rome as a consequence led to a life-long love affair with Italy. As a young man he considered taking holy orders, but his desire for success as a theatre composer won out in the end. While he continued to write music for the church, he went on to complete twelve operas, among them "Faust", "Mireille", hugely popular in its day, and "Romeo et Juliette".

Today Donald Macleod follows Gounod's progress from the Conservatoire in Paris to Rome, where he took up a Prix de Rome bursary. There he fell in love with the sound of plainchant in the Sistine Chapel and encountered the instrumental music of the German masters through an acquaintanceship with Fanny Hensel.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b0b5t398)
Travels for my Art, TBA

Martin Gayford refers to himself as a 'jobbing art critic'. That's a little self-deprecating for a writer who has experienced art and met (and sat for) artists all over the world. In this series he invites us to join him as he relives some of the more extraordinary journeys he has made in order to see art 'in the flesh'. These journeys take him (and sometimes also his long suffering wife Josephine) to far flung places - the island of Naoshima for example , a contemporary art lovers paradise that sits in Japan's inland sea . Sometimes the frustrations of Martin's journeys are man made - the impossible timetable of opening hours in Italian museums, loss of guide books, wrongheaded routes over mountain passes and miscalculations of weather, timings, customs and personal resilience.
Nevertheless Martin's efforts a repaid with some exceptional encounters - not only in Japan but in wild Romania where he searches out Brancusi's 'endless column, in the Marche in Italy where he's on the trail of the most secluded paintings by Lorenzo Lotto, in Iceland where he's invited by Ronni Horn to a Library of ....Water and in the south of France where he encounters Anselm Kiefer in his vast estate littered with concrete towers, lead planes and ships and dismal dungeons of artwork.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b5t5vv)
Charles Gounod (1818 - 1893), Mystic or Minstrel

Donald Macleod considers the reasons behind Charles Gounod's bid to become a theatrical composer and how his first opera "Sapho" was created.

The importance of Charles Gounod was readily acknowledged by the generations who succeeded him. A prolific composer, his contribution to song repertoire led Ravel to call him the "founder of the French melodie". Bizet, Massenet and Saint-Saens all took inspiration from his operas, while the body of religious music he produced is so substantial, it has yet to be properly assessed. Given his standing among peers it's perhaps unfair that his reputation faded so quickly after his death in 1893.

While he continued to write music for the church, he went on to complete twelve operas, among them "Faust", "Mireille", hugely popular in its day, and "Romeo et Juliette".

After three happy years spent in Italy and Vienna, in 1843 Charles Gounod returned home to Paris. Initially he took up a position writing music for a church but it wasn't long before the lure of the stage proved irresistible.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (b0b5t8cq)
Mark Lilla, Owen Hatherley, Gulzaar Barn

Mark Lilla could be called the conscience of liberal America. He talks to Anne McElvoy about life after identity politics. 2018 New Generation Thinker Gulzaar Barn discusses whether paying people for taking part in medical trials is different from other forms of "labour". Plus Owen Hatherley's latest book is called Trans-Europe Express: Tours of a Lost Continent. He discusses left over architecture and the renewal of public spaces in cities as diverse as Porto, Bologna, Lviv and Thessaloniki.

Mark Lilla's new book, The Once and Future Liberal, is a ferocious analysis of the American left's abdication as well as a call to arms. The time for evangelism - of speaking truth to power is over, he says, now it's all about seizing power to defend truth.

Gulzaar Barn lectures in philosophy at the University of Birmingham working on moral, political, and feminist philosophy.

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 with the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select ten academics at the start of their careers who can turn their research into radio. You can find a collection of short columns reflecting their research on bbc.co.uk/FreeThinking

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b5tl26)
Charles Gounod (1818 - 1893), A Pact with the Devil

Donald Macleod charts the struggles and frustrations Gounod overcame to create one of his biggest hits, "Faust".

The importance of Charles Gounod was readily acknowledged by the generations who succeeded him. A prolific composer, his contribution to song repertoire led Ravel to call him the "father of the French melodie". Bizet, Massenet and Saint-Saens all took inspiration from his operas, while the body of religious music he produced is so substantial, it has yet to be properly assessed. Given his standing among peers it's perhaps unfair that his reputation faded so quickly after his death in 1893. In more recent times his reputation has recovered but still, unfairly, rests on a handful of works. This week, therefore, presents a rare chance to delve into the surprising breadth of Gounod's musical preoccupations.

Born in 1818 into an artistic family, Gounod found success early on in 1839 as a winner of the prestigious Prix de Rome competition. The years he spent in Rome as a consequence led to a life-long love affair with Italy. As a young man he considered taking holy orders, but his desire for success as a theatre composer won out in the end. While he continued to write music for the church, he went on to complete twelve operas, among them "Faust", "Mireille", hugely popular in its day, and "Romeo et Juliette".

Gounod's first opera may have opened at the prestigious Paris Opera, but his pathway to a theatrical hit was far from guaranteed. His second opera, which had the grisly title, the Bleeding Nun, vanishised without a trace. Meanwhile Gounod met with the formidable force of his old piano teacher's wife. A change in his domestic life was soon on the cards.

CBSO - Brahms, Shostakovich and the UK premiere of Simon Holt's Surcos

Schoenberg's imaginative and colourful orchestration of Brahms' First Piano Quartet is conducted by Ilan Volkov in this concert broadcast live from Symphony Hall, Birmingham. Schoenberg had a great love for the music of Brahms and took on the challenge of transcribing the G Minor Piano Quartet for orchestra to revive what was, he thought, an under-performed chamber work in the early 20th Century.

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is joined by American cellist Alisa Weilerstein for Shostakovich's haunting Second Cello Concerto, full of the anguish and existential despair which characterise the composer's later works.

Multi-award winning British composer Simon Holt's new work, Surcos, is a CBSO co-commission and this concert marks its UK premiere. The title translates as 'furrows' and it was inspired by the poem Noviembre 1913 Antonio Machado (1875-1939), describing seeds cast into the soil before winter asserts its grip.

Tom Redmond presents this live broadcast.

Charles Gounod (1818 - 1893), Success at last

Donald Macleod dips into Gounod's comic opera La Colombe and his biggest theatrical hit Romeo et Juliette and encounters the redoubtable Mrs. Georgina Weldon.

The importance of Charles Gounod was readily acknowledged by the generations who succeeded him. A prolific composer, his contribution to song repertoire led Ravel to call him the "father of the French melodie". Bizet, Massenet and Saint-Saens all took inspiration from his operas, while the body of religious music he produced is so substantial, it has yet to be properly assessed. Given his standing among peers it's perhaps unfair that his reputation faded so quickly after his death in 1893. In more recent times his reputation has recovered but still, unfairly, rests on a handful of works. This week, therefore, presents a rare chance to delve into the surprising breadth of Gounod's musical preoccupations.

Born in 1818 into an artistic family, Gounod found success early on in 1839 as a winner of the prestigious Prix de Rome competition.

While he continued to write music for the church, he went on to complete twelve operas, among them "Faust", "Mireille", hugely popular in its day, and "Romeo et Juliette".

In today's episode Donald Macleod looks at Gounod's activities over what turned into a very difficult decade. The outbreak of the Franco-Prussian war led Gounod to relocate himself and his family to England. It wasn't long before trouble was brewing across the channel too.

Travels for my Art, Iceland

Martin Gayford is used to the 'quirks' of the avant-garde art world. Still, he is curious to be invited to Iceland to view Roni Horn's collection of samples - the Library of Water.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b0b60y5x)
Max Reinhardt with a Circuit des Yeux mixtape

Max features a Late Junction Mixtape that's a breakdown of the love song from American songstress Haley Fohr a.k.a. Circuit des Yeux. Haley's music and persona is characterised by her sumptuous baritone vocal and compelling take on alternative American culture. In her Late Junction Mixtape she expresses her reticence to ever write a proper love song, its mythology and place in popular culture as a tool to tether us and plays her all time favourites and not-so-obvious love songs.

Also on the show, a cappella vocals from Japanese singer Hatis Noit and an exercise in active listening from a compilation put together by a Lithuanian art collective.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell for Reduced Listening.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b5wjzx)
Charles Gounod (1818 - 1893), The Elder Statesman

Donald Macleod explores some of Gounod's later stage works, Polyeucte, an opera to which he remained deeply attached until his death, and Cinq-Mars and considers his contemporaries' view of his music.

The importance of Charles Gounod was readily acknowledged by the generations who succeeded him. A prolific composer, his contribution to song repertoire led Ravel to call him the "father of the French melodie". Bizet, Massenet and Saint-Saens all took inspiration from his operas, while the body of religious music he produced is so substantial, it has yet to be properly assessed. Given his standing among peers it's perhaps unfair that his reputation faded so quickly after his death in 1893. In more recent times his reputation has recovered but still, unfairly, rests on a handful of works. This week, therefore, presents a rare chance to delve into the surprising breadth of Gounod's musical preoccupations.

Born in 1818 into an artistic family, Gounod found success early on in 1839 as a winner of the prestigious Prix de Rome competition. The years he spent in Rome as a consequence led to a life-long love affair with Italy. As a young man he considered taking holy orders, but his desire for success as a theatre composer won out in the end. While he continued to write music for the church, he went on to complete twelve operas, among them "Faust", "Mireille", hugely popular in its day, and "Romeo et Juliette".

Rather to the irritation of his younger friend Bizet, in his final years Gounod assumed the role of a kind of elder statesman of French music, giving interviews and opining on any given subject. A devout Catholic, one of the very last pieces of music he wrote was to be a Requiem.
