Building a Library on Gerald Finzi's Dies natalis with Elin Manahan Thomas.

Begun in the mid-1920s but not premiered until 1940, Finzi's cantata for solo voice and string orchestra sets the words of 17th century English poet, Thomas Traherne. By turns ecstatic and pastoral, this most celebrated of Finzi's works is but modestly represented in the recording catalogue, and then almost exclusively by British musicians.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b0b8bxgt)
Debussy, David Toop and Rhythms of the Heart

Presented by Tom Service

Tom is in Glyndebourne to preview a new production of Debussy's opera Pelleas et Melisande, exploring the opera's themes of dream, reality and our relationship with the past with the director Stefan Herheim and singers Christina Gansch and John Chest.

David Toop tells Tom about working with flutes and electronics to reinterpret the musical dreamscape of traditional Japanese Noh theatre, as he performs at Kings Place as part of Noh Reimagined festival.

With events celebrating the 70th anniversary of the NHS happening this week, Kate Molleson meets the pianist and mathematics researcher Elaine Chew, whose own experiences with heart arrhythmias have led her to respond to music differently and create new pieces.

Tom also talks to Kevin le Gendre about his new book, Don't Stop the Carnival: The story of Black music in Britain, and we take a walk along the River Tyne with the folk musician Martin Green, creator of Aeons, a new sound piece for the Great Exhibition of the North.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b86rdn)
Inside Music with Sofi Jeannin

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today conductor Sofi Jeannin talks about the sense of longing she hears in Elgar's first symphony, is seduced by the velvet fingers of violinist Josef Hassid, and reveals her admiration for percussionists by choosing a virtuosic piece by Xenakis. Sofi also ensures a Swedish flavour to her choices, playing music by composers from her homeland including Wilhelm Stenhammar, Anders Hillborg and Elfrida Andree.

For her Must Listen piece at 2 o'clock, Sofi plays a brand new recording she has made with the BBC Singers featuring music by a French composer who was once described as "half monk, half rascal".

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.

Jean Toussaint Allstar 6Tet in Session

A weekly programme celebrating the best in jazz - past, present and future. With a session from Jean Toussaint Allstar 6Tet.

A former member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, the saxophonist moved to London over 30 years ago where he has been a key player on the UK jazz scene ever since. He'll be performing tracks from his new album Brother Raymond.

Produced by Dominic Tyerman for Somethin' Else.


SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (b0b86rdv)
Janacek's From the House of the Dead

The first staging from the Royal Opera House of Janacek's final and most powerful work, the opera From the House of the Dead. Based on Dostoyevsky's semi-autobiographical novel describing life in a Siberian gulag, it is a very dark and bleak work, dealing with brutal subject matter - men prisoners with very violent pasts - and yet it is a compassionate work, Janacek's score is full of beauty and tenderness, and astonishing colours. The large cast includes Sir Willard White and the baritone Johan Reuter, and is conducted by Mark Wigglesworth.
Donald Macleod presents and is joined by Nigel Simeone.

SAT 20:10 Gruppen (b0b86rdx)

Gruppen - Stockhausen's masterpiece re-created earlier today in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern.
Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra are surrounded by the audience in a rare performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen's 1955 landmark of the avant-garde. Stockhausen wrote: "When I was composing Gruppen for three orchestras, I had a little room in Switzerland for three months, and there was a small window in front of my desk through which I could see the incredible shapes of the mountains on the other side of the valley. Whole envelopes of rhythmic blocks are exact lines of mountains that I saw... right in front of my little window." The epic spaces of the home of modern art also promise to deliver an overwhelming soundscape for Olivier Messiaen's Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum (I Await the Resurrection of the Dead) of 1964-5. Messiaen was inspired by the Hautes-Alpes whilst he worked on the score which he said was "destined for vast spaces." The Tate Modern performances were sold out within minutes, so this is a special occasion not to be missed. The experience will also be made available on Wednesday evening in binaural sound.
Presented by Tom Service and Robert Worby.

London Symphony Orchestra
conductors Sir Simon Rattle, Matthias Pintscher, Duncan Ward.


SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b0b86s0j)
The NHS Symphony

The patterns and flows of life in the NHS captured in immersive stereo, with specially commissioned music sung by NHS staff and The Bach Choir.

In the maternity unit at Birmingham's Heartlands Hospital, the heart rate of an unborn child gives cause for concern. Across town at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, patients with critical heart conditions are closely monitored hour by hour. Downstairs in A&E, staff begin their shift not knowing what awaits them.

Between the Ears marks the 70th anniversary of the NHS with a unique composition depicting two Birmingham hospitals as they care for patients from cradle to grave. In four movements, the rhythms of the health service are accompanied by a special choral work written by award winning composer Alex Woolf, an alumnus of the BBC's Proms Inspire Scheme.

The NHS Symphony is recorded in binaural stereo which simulates how the human ear hears sounds. For a fully immersive experience, the programme is best listened to on headphones.

The Bach Choir are joined by members of the Barts Choir, the Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Choir and the Royal Free Music Society Choir

Conductor: Mark Austin

Solo soprano: Julia Blinko

Composer/pianist: Alex Woolf

Producer: Laurence Grissell.


SAT 22:00 Hear and Now (b0b86s0n)
Philip Venables, 4.48 Psychosis

Tom Service presents Philip Venables' opera 4.48 Psychosis (based on a play by Sarah Kane), a Royal Opera House production recorded at the Lyric Hammersmith in April.
Gweneth Ann Rand, Lucy Hall, Susanna Hurrell (sopranos)
Lucy Schaufer, Samantha Price, Rachael Lloyd (mezzo-sopranos)
Chroma Ensemble with Sarah Hatch and Louise Goodwin (percussion)
Music Director: Richard Baker
4:48 Psychosis was the final work of the radical British playwright Sarah Kane, first performed posthumously in 2000. Detailing the experience of clinical depression, the play harrowingly reveals, through poetry, anger and dark humour, an individual's struggle to come to terms with their own psychosis, the numbers in the title referring to the time in the early morning when clarity and bleak despair strike together.
In Philip Venables' new operatic adaptation of Kane's play, directed by Ted Huffman, the search for love and happiness and the struggle for identity are explored through a fusion of opera with spoken text.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b09hrp4s)
Michael Frayn

The playwright and novelist Michael Frayn shares his musical passions with Michael Berkeley.

Michael Frayn is an acute observer of the absurdities and pain of the human condition, and his writing career has spanned journalism, novels, philosophy, Russian translation, and plays both philosophical and farcical. Noises Off, his 1982 farce about a farce, has become one of the twentieth century's best loved and most successful plays and is frequently described as the funniest farce ever written. Equally praised have been his philosophical plays such as Copenhagen and Democracy.

He tells Michael about his childhood in Surrey, which partly inspired his award-winning novel Spies, his time in the army learning Russian, and the pain and pleasure of farce - the most technically demanding of all literary forms.

And he shares his lifelong love of classical music, choosing pieces by Beethoven, Prokofiev, Mozart, Mahler, and Brahms - and a piece by his late mother-in-law Muriel Herbert.

Unmissable Music for the King of Instruments

Roderick Williams presents an hour of organ favourites and new discoveries. In today's programme, we follow a solemn funeral procession to its surprisingly exultant conclusion, J.S. Bach makes graceful leaps of joy in his beloved chorale: Wachet Auf, and we revel in the sound of the spectacular fanfare trumpets which crown the historic organ at Washington Cathedral.


SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b0b89gc6)
The Fifth

Tom Service savours the sound of the fifth - an interval with many meanings, from mystic drone to military bugle call. He's joined by Early Music expert Jeremy Llewellyn who explains the significance of the fifth in medieval music, related to The Music of the Spheres and used to invoke the Almighty in religious chant; and by composer David Bruce, who describes how composers today find fresh uses for this primal sound. Tom finds the open, ringing sound of the fifth in all sorts of music, from a Buzzcocks guitar solo to a Bruckner symphony, providing the thrill of adventure in the Star Wars theme and underpinning the reels of Scottish bagpipe music.


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (b0b9zf25)
Boredom, Restlessness, Killing Time

An exploration of the experience of boredom. Whether it's an idle moment or a life sentence, a spur to action or opportunity for contemplation, it's provided writers and musicians with a rich area to explore: Flaubert's Madame Bovary is driven to a disastrous affair, Kingsley Amis's Lucky Jim resorts to pulling grotesque faces, Jane Austen's Emma scorns a boring acquaintance, and Beckett's The Unnameable contrives a complex inner life of invention from doing absolutely nothing. In music, the Prince in Prokofiev's Love for Three Oranges is dying of boredom, which provokes the courtiers to elaborate entertainments to revive him; for Cole Porter, "practically everything leaves me totally cold"; and the Buzzcocks are "waiting for the phone to ring"....

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b0b89gj3)
Binary and Beyond, Episode 2

Emma Smith explores how depictions of gender in ancient myths and great art from the past might help us understand the debates surrounding gender today.
2.How have the arts - the novel, in particular, but also dance and music - covered ideas of transitioning the gender of our physical bodies? Might a Greek mythological character such as Tiresias, a novel such as Virginia Woolf's Orlando, or an altogether 21st century activity such as Queer Tango help us see the human body as a site of "eumorphia" rather than dysmorphia?

Happily confessing to having two left feet, Emma attends a Queer Tango session in south London in order to reflect upon how casually but deeply gendered our lives continue to be today.

She talks with the American author Jeffrey Eugenides about his Pulitzer-prize-winning novel, Middlesex; with Woolf scholar Professor Laura Marcus, author Meg Rosoff, classicist Alastair Blanshard, Mezzo-Soprano Dame Sarah Connolly, and musician and trans activist C.N.Lester to understand gender and identity. Along the way, she learns about the androgynous quality of many great artist and the more expansive gender spectrum their work inspires.

Back on the dance floor, Emma wonders sees how the arts might help each of us transcend our gendered bodies and travel "Beyond Binary", if only in the imagination.

Producer: Beaty Rubens.

SUN 23:30 The Glory of Polyphony (b0b89h85)
Byrd, Cornysh and the Eton Choirbook

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 fifth programme, Peter will delve into the lives and music of two English composers born a century apart.

In England, the florid style of composers like William Cornysh who contributed to the illuminated anthology of sacred music known as the Eton Choirbook at the turn of the 16th Century changed beyond recognition with the effects of the Reformation. In just under a century, the grandiose embellishments of the Italian style which had been so influential up to Henry VIII's split from Rome were replaced by something far more intimate.
William Byrd was a favourite of the Anglican Queen Elizabeth I, but because of Byrd's Catholic faith, his sacred music was largely published and performed in secret so as to avoid arrest by Her Majesty's teams of spies.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b0b89kc4)
Narrative Medicine, Sonny's Blues

Part of the BBC's NHS at 70 season of special programmes.

This programme deals with serious medical issues and trauma.

On the basis that "fiction reveals truth that reality obscures", in 2000 Dr Rita Charon founded the pioneering Program in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University, which started to teach literature and creative writing to medical students. "Narrative Medicine" was the term she coined to describe the capacity to recognize, absorb, metabolize, interpret, and be moved by stories of illness. Simply - it's medicine practised by someone who knows what to do with stories.

This idea has been taken up by medical schools all over the world, including Britain, as a way to help health professionals grow in empathy and reflection.
Narrative medicine draws patients, doctors, nurses, and therapists together to re-imagine a health care based on trust and trustworthiness, humility, and mutual recognition. The goal is to make connections -and for Rita, actively looking to understand what a patient is telling you, in the way you might closely read a work of literature, is the way in.

Taking a different book each day as a starting point , Rita reflects on her experiences as a physician with the people she treats. These books become doorways into a different reality, and shed light on the different outcomes of illness - acceptance, death, healing. Each programme is a meditation on our changing minds and bodies and the passing of time.

In the first programme Rita reminisces on her doctor-patient friendship with Miss Nellie Jackson of Harlem, and recounts how a close reading of James Baldwin's short story "Sonny's Blues" helped her to a deeper understanding of, and empathy with, the experience of someone so different from herself, breaking down the divisions of class, age and race.

Rita Charon is Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. She has recently been appointed the inaugural chair of a new Department in Medical Humanities and Ethics at Columbia's medical school.

The vocal prowess of Berio's wife Cathy Berberian was to prove a revelation to him, and a stimulus to some of his most intriguing works. Donald Macleod discusses the life and music of Luciano Berio (1925-2003) with Gillian Moore, focusing today on Berio's rich period of creativity during the 1960s. It's a time when Berio's marriage to Cathy was under increasing strain, and Luciano spent time teaching in the USA, where he met the woman who would become his second wife.

Narrative Medicine, The Wings of the Dove

Part of the BBC's NHS at 70 season of special programmes

This programme deals with serious medical issues and trauma.

On the basis that "fiction reveals truth that reality obscures", in 2000 Dr Rita Charon founded the pioneering Program in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University, which started to teach literature and creative writing to medical students. "Narrative Medicine" was the term she coined to describe the capacity to recognize, absorb, metabolize, interpret, and be moved by stories of illness. Simply - it's medicine practised by someone who knows what to do with stories.

This idea has been taken up by medical schools all over the world, including Britain, as a way to help health professionals grow in empathy and reflection.
Narrative medicine draws patients, doctors, nurses, and therapists together to re-imagine a health care based on trust and trustworthiness, humility, and mutual recognition. And for Rita, actively looking to understand what a patient is telling you, in the way you might closely read a work of literature, is the way in.

In this episode Rita reads Henry James' novel "The Wings of the Dove" and finds, in Sir Luke Strett's relationship with his patient Milly, a model for the physician - on the sidelines of a person's life, yet a loyal advocate for them.

Rita Charon is Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.

Luciano Berio (1925-2003), Berio the Joker

Donald Macleod discusses the life and music of Luciano Berio (1925-2003) with Gillian Moore. In today's episode Donald recounts some of Berio's childhood love of practical jokes, and relates this to Berio's irreverence towards certain aspects of the classical tradition. By the late 1960s he was sought out even by The Beatles as a leading light in the classical world . In 1968 he spent a vacation in Sicily (complete with his present and former wife and families) to compose his masterpiece. This is the bold and thrilling Sinfonia, with its O King response to the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King, and its famous adaptation of Mahler, complete with the addition of amplified voices.

Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment: Schiff's Surprise

In the last of their 'Visions, Illusions & Delusions' season the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment are joined by distinguished pianist and conductor András Schiff for an all-Haydn programme including two late, great works. The Mass in B flat is Haydn's last significant work and cost the 70-year-old composer a great deal of effort. It gets its name 'Harmoniemesse' or 'Wind-band mass' for its unusually prominent (for Haydn) use of wind instruments. Spoiler alert: the surprise in Haydn's Symphony No.94 is a loud unexpected chord for full orchestra in the slow movement but it would be a shame to focus on this when the rest of the music is so tirelessly fresh, inventive and full of delightful compositional sleights of hand. But perhaps the real surprise of the concert is the opportunity to hear a Haydn keyboard concerto. This D major concerto is by far Haydn's most popular with its flamboyant Hungarian gypsy rondo finale.

Presented live from the Queen Elizabeth Hall by Martin Handley.

In this episode Rita considers Kazuo Ishiguro's novel "Never Let Me Go", and the questions that it raises of what it means to be human, and how physicians can respond to life's mysteries and paradoxes.

By the early 1970s Luciano Berio (1925-2003) was in demand in many parts of the world, and regularly travelling between Europe and the USA, and even Israel, where he would meet his third wife. Donald Macleod discusses this phase of his life with Gillian Moore - a period which sees Berio composing such a strange and yet captivating work as A-Ronne, and the vast canvas of Coro, using texts in various languages. It's a period which also finds the restless Berio settling down to purchase a private estate at Radicondoli, in Tuscany.

Afternoon Concert with Penny Gore featuring the RAI National Symphony Orchestra performing Rossini's The Siege of Corinth

Today's Opera Matinee is a rare opportunity to hear Rossini's first French opera, Le siège de Corinthe (The Siege of Corinth). It was a reworking of his earlier opera for Naples, Maometto II. The basic situations and relationships between the characters are maintained from the earlier opera.

After the siege and destruction of Missolonghi in 1826 by Turkish troops during the Greek War of Independence, Rossini was able to capitalize on the topicality of his subject by moving the story back a few decades to the time when Sultan Mehmed II had indeed besieged the Greek city of Corinth in the 1450s.

Penny Gore introduces a recording made at last year's Rossini Festival in Pesaro starring the soprano Nino Machaidze and the bass Luca Pisaroni conducted by Roberto Abbado.

THU 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b0b8bcqb)
Sinfonia Cymru play Mozart and Bartok

Nicola Heywood Thomas presents a concert with Sinfonia Cymru, a chamber orchestra from Wales, under the Hungarian conductor Gábor Takács-Nagy, recorded in Cardiff at the Dora Stoutzker Hall at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

Mozart was an excellent violinist and played professionally at the court orchestra in Salzburg. However, at home, it was the gentler tones of the viola he seemed to prefer. Mozart features both instruments side by side in his Sinfonia Concertante. Also featured in this lively programme is Mozart's passionate 40th Symphony, and the concert opens with songs inspired by Welsh folk music, by leading Welsh composer Huw Watkins.

During the interval Nicola Heywood Thomas chats to members of the orchestra about the orchestra's varied musical projects, and we hear tracks from their latest album Birdsong - Cân yr Adar.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b0b8bcqg)
Narrative Medicine, To The Lighthouse

Part of the BBC's NHS at 70 season of special programmes

This programme deals with serious medical issues and trauma.

On the basis that "fiction reveals truth that reality obscures", in 2000 Dr Rita Charon founded the pioneering Program in Narrative Medicine at Columbia University, which started to teach literature and creative writing to medical students. "Narrative Medicine" was the term she coined to describe the capacity to recognize, absorb, metabolize, interpret, and be moved by stories of illness. Simply - it's medicine practised by someone who knows what to do with stories.

This idea has been taken up by medical schools all over the world, including Britain, as a way to help health professionals grow in empathy and reflection.
Narrative medicine draws patients, doctors, nurses, and therapists together to re-imagine a health care based on trust and trustworthiness, humility, and mutual recognition. And for Rita, actively looking to understand what a patient is telling you, in the way you might closely read a work of literature, is the way in.

Dr Charon takes a different book each day as a starting point for her own very personal reflections on her experiences with the people she treats. These books become doorways into a different reality, and shed light on the different outcomes of illness - acceptance, death, healing. Each programme is a meditation on our changing minds and bodies and the passing of time.

In this episode Rita's starting point is Virginia Woolf's novel "To The Lighthouse", finding parallels between the portents of war in the novel and the responses of her New York City patients to the September 11th attacks.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b8bk91)
Luciano Berio (1925-2003), What my spirit tells me

Luciano Berio (1925-2003) felt compelled to compose right until the very end of his life, declaring to one of his grandchildren that he simply had to, because it was 'what my spirit tells me'. He completed his very last commission only shortly before he died. Donald Macleod and Gillian Moore look at Berio's life and music at this period (a time when Gillian came to know the composer personally), and among other things consider the extraordinary paradox of an avowed communist or partito communista supporter who owned a private estate complete with vineyard! As well as writing extraordinary works for the theatre, Berio maintained a lifelong interest in folksong, and added to his series of Sequenzas for virtuoso instrumentalists.

Rita Charon is Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
