9.30am Building a Library: Nicholas Kenyon on Don Giovanni

The Marriage of Figaro had been a sensational success with Prague audiences. So, forsaking the fickle Viennese, Mozart wrote his new opera Don Giovanni especially for Prague where he anticipated - and received - another rapturous reception.

When it comes to gratifying his lust, Don Giovanni is a man who never takes no for an answer and he only gets his comeuppance when, as a consequence of his latest encounter, he has to confront the supernatural and descends, defiantly unrepentant, to hell. With its compelling drama and characterisation bound up in a succession of unforgettable musical numbers, Don Giovanni is among Mozart's greatest stage works; it sometimes feels as if the total of its recordings (by some of the finest musicians of this and the last century) adds up to the same number as Giovanni's sexual conquests.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b0b9105y)
Music and Language

Presented by Kate Molleson

For the last Music Matters of the season, Kate explores the connections between music and language by revisiting her recent trips through parts of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Starting in Faversham, on the north Kent coast, the singer and guitarist Chris Wood explains how he weaves the local and ordinary into his music. And at her home in Yorkshire, Norma Waterson tells Kate about her passion for traditional English folk song, and about making music in her own accent with the other members of her famous folk family.

In the Rhondda Valley, Kate experiences the spine-tingling harmonies of the Pendyrus Male Choir and hears from Gareth Williams how the choir's sound is a result of its industrial history and the Welsh language. And we hear from Pat Morgan of 80s punk band Datblygu, who showed a love of the language by ranting against the romanticised clichés of tradition.

Against the backdrop of the current political debate around language in Northern Ireland, the composers Brian Irvine, Deirdre McKay and Una Monaghan describe how words and language influence the music they write.

And in Scotland, with the writer and poet James Robertson in Angus, and a walk through the lowlands outside Edinburgh with the singer Karine Polwart, Kate explores the use of Scots in song.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (b0b91060)
Inside Music with Paul Lewis

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside. Today pianist Paul Lewis is amused and maddened in equal measure by fellow pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin, and chooses a recording of Mozart's Rondo in A minor played by his teacher Alfred Brendel. He's also terrified yet entranced by a recording of Dame Clara Butt made in 1917, and chooses a recording by two jazz musicians that for Paul captures the very essence of chamber music.

At 2 o'clock Paul plays his Must Listen piece - a Schubert choral work for male voices and strings in which he hears a depth of sound colour that he's often searching for in his piano playing.

A Tandem Production for BBC Radio 3.


SAT 15:00 Sound of Cinema (b0b913m1)
Frankenstein

Matthew Sweet looks back on film scores composed to convey the wonder and terror of Mary Shelley's great creation in the week of Haifaa al-Mansour's new film biopic of the writer.

As well as featuring music by Amelia Warner for the new film, Matthew also offers musical moments from the 1931 James Whale 'Frankenstein'; 'Mary Shelley's Frankenstein'; 'Son Of Frankenstein'; House Of Frankenstein'; 'Frankenstein Must Be Destroyed'; 'I Frankenstein'; 'Victor Frankenstein'; and the 2015 version of 'Frankenstein'.

The Classic Score of the Week is Franz Waxman's "Bride of Frankenstein'.

SAT 17:00 Opera on 3 (b0b9141l)
Wagner's Lohengrin at the Royal Opera House

Wagner's Lohengrin, recorded earlier this month at the Royal Opera House in London, with a stellar cast lead by tenor Klaus Florian Vogt in the title role and the soprano Jennifer Davis as Elsa von Brabant. Based on a German medieval romance, the noble and pure knight Lohengrin is sent to defend and protect Elsa, and as the couple fall madly in love, a dark conspiracy based on treason and jealousy threatens to undermine them, with tragic consequences. Wagner named Lohengrin a 'Romantic opera', and significantly he developed on it his first attempts to write a through-composed music drama, innovating the genre and changing it for ever. Latvian maestro Andris Nelsons conducts the Royal Opera House orchestra and chorus.
Presented by Martin Handley.

SAT 21:30 Between the Ears (b0831955)
Rain

Alice Oswald's radio poem Rain was commissioned by Radio 3 in 2016 as part of the 70th anniversary celebrations. Written and performed by the poet, Rain was inspired by a visit to Romford Essex, which experienced a dramatic sudden rainstorm in the early hours of June 23 that year. The poem examines the effect this natural atmospheric occurrence has on an urban environment and its population.

A version of Rain has been created in binaural sound. Listen on headphones for the full effect.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b0b91qgh)
Adjoa Andoh

The actor Adjoa Andoh talks to Michael Berkeley about her passion for theatre, opera, and the music that reflects both her English and African heritage.

Whether you're a regular at the National Theatre or Old Vic, prefer your entertainment on the big screen, or like to curl up on the sofa in front of Dr Who or Casualty (or - even - with the radio), you'll be familiar with the work of Adjoa Andoh.

The daughter of a history teacher and of an exiled Ghanaian journalist, she was heading for a career in the law before making a dramatic switch to acting, and has scarcely been out of work since. Her recent theatre work includes playing the exiled Black Panther leader in Assata Taught Me at The Gate, and Casca in Nicholas Hytner's highly acclaimed production of Julius Caesar at the Bridge Theatre.

She chooses music by Vaughan Williams, Rimsky-Korsakov, Bernstein, Puccini, Britten, and the African musician Dade Krama - music which reflects joyous moments in her life but also the challenges she's faced: growing up mixed race in rural England in the 60s and 70s, forging a career as an actor without a drama school training, and speaking up about being the mother of a transgender child.

Producer: Jane Greenwood

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b081t4vp)
Cover Versions

The Listening Service explores the art of the cover version: what happens when one composer 'covers' the art of another? Why was it common practice for baroque composers to recycle their own work and 'borrow' from their colleagues on a regular basis? And what of musical traditions like folk and jazz where key pieces or 'standards' are covered by multiple artists? Tom Service talks to baroque expert Berta Joncas and folk star Eliza Carthy to get some answers.

And he relives with Czech friends stories of cafes and cartoons, sex and surveillance and the hope and despair of a people fighting Soviet tanks and secret police with words, plays and tragic self-sacrifice.


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b0b91sqp)
The Glass Menagerie

By Tennessee Williams

The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams' first big success when it opened on Broadway in 1945, and has remained the most touching, tender and painful of his works. Closely based on the playwright's own life and family in St Louis in the 1930s, Williams breaks away from naturalism to create a dream-like atmosphere. The narrator Tom conjures up recollections of the cramped and claustrophobic tenement home he shares with his often over-bearing mother Amanda, and his painfully shy sister, Laura.

The play simmers with frustration as each character is trapped in their own unhappy situation. Tom (also Williams' birth name) works in a warehouse but dreams of being a poet and escaping his mundane life supporting his mother and sister. Laura hides at home lacking the confidence to engage meaningfully with the outside world, preferring instead to get lose herself in her collection of fragile glass animals. Amanda sells magazine subscriptions over the phone and commits herself to finding a match for her daughter. One day, Tom succumbs to his mother's pressure and brings home a gentleman caller to visit his sister, and their quiet existence is shattered.

The programme is introduced by John Lahr, author of the acclaimed biography Tennessee Williams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh.

SUN 23:30 The Glory of Polyphony (b0b91tc7)
Tomkins, Cardoso and the New World

Peter Phillips brings his six-part series celebrating the Glory of Polyphony to a close.

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 sixth and final programme, Peter will explore later developments on the peripheries of Europe and beyond, focusing on the music of Thomas Tomkins in England and Manuel Cardoso in Portugal. He'll also look at how composers such as Juan Gutierrez de Padilla took the Renaissance polyphonic tradition in Europe further afield to the new missions in Mexico and South America.

In England during the early 17th Century, Renaissance-style counterpoint was still key, and Welsh-born Tomkins served King and country with anthems and liturgical music until the outbreak of the English Civil War. In Portugal and the New World, composers reacted to the developments of Monteverdi and looked ahead to Baroque harmonic structures whilst clinging to the traditional choral framework. Manuel Cardoso was a loyal servant and friend to the musical King Joao IV, who helped him to publish most of his works, much of which were destroyed in the Lisbon earthquake of 1755.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b920hy)
Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), A local man - Gloucestershire

Ralph Vaughan Williams was a composer with a self-consciously national voice, who nonetheless believed passionately in the importance of localism. Indeed, he saw healthy music-making in each community as the ultimate source of national musical vitality, and longed for a time when every major town in Britain would have its own orchestra. His respect for folk music and well-known use of traditional melodies reflected a strong response to places, and the people he met there. This week, Donald examines five key locations which were significant throughout the composer's life.

Although he was born in Gloucestershire, Vaughan Williams only lived there for a few years and barely remembered his infancy in Down Ampney. Nevertheless it continued to be a significant locus for him throughout his life, particularly due to his close relationship with the Three Choirs Festival. Several important works were written for or inspired by the county and Cathedral, including his ground-breaking Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

MON 22:45 The Essay (b0b941th)
The Meaning of Beaches, Dover Beach

Essay One : Dover Beach
A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised three series of essays The Meaning of Trees and two series of The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches all of which are unique and quintessentially British in very different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these five beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery which has captured so much attention for her previous five series' of essays.

Dover beach symbolises Brexit, war, resistance, fortitude, commerce, smuggling, desperation and racism. A beach steeped in British history and meaning, yet Calais is visible across the Strait of Dover, the narrowest part of the English Channel, attracting centuries of channel swimmers, with ferries and cargo ships bustling in and out by the white cliffs. Dover beach is shingle with the medieval Dover Castle overlooking it. It's now a popular spot with tourists with a promenade, deckchairs and kiosks but it's not your average tourist who comes to Dover beach. It receives a much higher percentage of Brexit voters, Churchill devotees and fossil-hunters than an average British beach. Its former incarnations as hotbeds of smuggling, of goods, contraband and people have echoes of the modern realities facing this beach which is at the forefront of the UK's future. It is the inspiration for one of the UK's favourite poems, "Dover Beach" by Matthew Arnold, a really pertinent poem for Britain today.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b9431x)
Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), A local man - Europe

Ralph Vaughan Williams was a composer with a self-consciously national voice, who nonetheless believed passionately in the importance of localism. Indeed, he saw healthy music-making in each community as the ultimate source of national musical vitality, and longed for a time when every major town in Britain would have its own orchestra. His respect for folk music and well-known use of traditional melodies reflected a strong response to places, and the people he met there. This week, Donald examines five key locations which were significant throughout the composer's life.

Vaughan Williams' career as a composer began slowly, and at the turn of the century he went to both Germany and France for lessons. Just a few years later he would return as an ambulance man in the First World War. His relationship with Ravel in particular bore much inspirational fruit, and their friendship endured until the Frenchman's death. In the Second World War, VW contributed musically and practically to the war effort, whilst also working hard to ensure justice for European composers interred in Britain.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b0b9435w)
The Meaning of Beaches, The Giant's Causeway

A new series of essays by the popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature, Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised five series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers. Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches, all unique and quintessentially British in different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery that captured so much attention for her previous essay series.

The Giant's Causeway is the ultimate beach-as-symbol with its 40,000 basalt hexagonal columns spawning myriad myths and legends across the millennia, still fascinating mathematicians, geologists, writers, artists, witches and tourists many of whom visit Northern Ireland primarily to come to this beach. The iconic rocks are a result of volcanic eruption 50 million years ago, with some of the weathered formations described as resembling a giant's boot, chimney stacks and a camel's hump. Some of this County Antrim beach is owned by the National Trust, but not all of it. Some is owned by the Crown Estate and some by private landowners. Parts of the beach are now restricted and have opening and closing times, with the gift shop supporting a craft industry in Northern Ireland as it has a rule that 80% of crafts sold must be made in Northern Ireland. Large numbers of visitors is perhaps unsurprising since the Giant's Causeway is Northern Ireland's only UNESCO World Heritage site. The size of the columns was dictated by how fast the lava from the volcano cooled, the faster the cooling, the smaller the columns hence the diameter of the hexagons varies cross the beach.

Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), A local man - Kensington and Chelsea

Ralph Vaughan Williams was a composer with a self-consciously national voice, who nonetheless believed passionately in the importance of localism. Indeed, he saw healthy music-making in each community as the ultimate source of national musical vitality, and longed for a time when every major town in Britain would have its own orchestra. His respect for folk music and well-known use of traditional melodies reflected a strong response to places, and the people he met there. This week, Donald examines five key locations which were significant throughout the composer's life.

Vaughan Williams loved London. He particularly enjoyed life at his house at Cheyne Walk, while his life-long association with the musical institutions of the capital meant that he was never away for very long. Many works were written for performers and groups based in the city, including his "favourite" London Symphony.

Elgar wrote his String Quartet in the summer and autumn of 1918 when, depressed by his own ill health and the horrors of the First World War, he retired from London to 'Brinkwells,' a cottage that Lady Elgar had found in the Sussex countryside near Fittleworth. It was in the seclusion of the Sussex woods that he wrote most of the quartet whose slow movement Lady Elgar described as "captured sunshine". Indeed it was played at her funeral in 1920.

Helaine Blumenfeld, Dale Harding, Stella Tillyard

Helaine Blumenfeld is a sculptor who divides her time between her family in England and her work-family in Italy. As an exhibition featuring much new work opens in Ely Cathedral, she talks to Anne McElvoy about expressing her thoughts in marble, the importance of risk to the artist and why total immersion without distraction produces her best work.
As the Liverpool Biennial gets under way Dale Harding, an Australian artist and descendant of the Bidjara, Ghungalu and Garingbal peoples of Central Queensland, explains his own education in the medium of wood and why his art is part of the making and story-telling traditions and brutal recent history of his cultural family. Back to the 17th century and Stella Tillyard tells Anne about the inspiration behind her new novel: the immense human effort (and human sacrifice) it took to reclaim land from the sea in East Anglia, Holland and the islands of what is now New York.
And pirates...New Generation Thinker and Ottoman historian, Michael Talbot, looks to change their image.

WED 22:45 The Essay (b0b945xz)
The Meaning of Beaches, Scarborough Beach

A new series of essays by the very popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised three series of essays The Meaning of Trees and two series of The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches all of which are unique and quintessentially British in very different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these five beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery which has captured so much attention for her previous five series' of essays.

Scarborough beach in North Yorkshire with its crumbling cliffs and booming, then declining and now re-invented tourism, symbolises so much about modern and Victorian Britain, and the British coastal town tradition that is so unique. Reinventing itself with medicinal and artistic pasts now resurgent, the collapsing of cliff top buildings into the sea is a thing of the recent past. Scarborough is quintessentially English and yet distinctly Yorkshire. South Bay and North Bay of Scarborough beach have different feels; South Bay has attractions and entertainment, with the harbour and pleasure boats heading out to sea, whereas North Bay is quieter with brightly coloured beach chalets for rent and nature more in evidence in the wild and in its sea life centre. The south bay is where the Scarborough spa is built, originally founded in the 18th century for the medicinal waters and now finding very different ways to harness the healing powers of the sea and beach. Entrepreneurial Scarborough beach leads where other British beaches wish they could follow.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (b0b94873)
Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), A local man - Surrey

Ralph Vaughan Williams was a composer with a self-consciously national voice, who nonetheless believed passionately in the importance of localism. Indeed, he saw healthy music-making in each community as the ultimate source of national musical vitality, and longed for a time when every major town in Britain would have its own orchestra. His respect for folk music and well-known use of traditional melodies reflected a strong response to places, and the people he met there. This week, Donald examines five key locations which were significant throughout the composer's life.

Vaughan Williams was born in Gloucestershire and loved living in London, but it was in Surrey that his roots lay, and where he spent most of his life. His childhood in a stately home on Leith Hill gave him a deep love of the English countryside, and it was in the villages around Dorking that, as a mature composer, he built his own local music-making communities. Here he developed his deeply-held philosophy of national musical life "emanating from the parish pump", exemplified by his grand work for local choirs, "Benedicite".

The festival is held in a variety of picturesque venues across the Kingdom of Fife and we start today's programme at Crail Church where the renowned German conductor and pianist Christian Zacharias plays his own personal selection of works by Domenico Scarlatti and Antonio Soler.
Just a short journey from Crail, through the beautiful Scottish countryside, lies the village of Kilrenny. It is here, at the parish church, that the Elias Quartet perform the first of Beethoven's late string quartets. This body of six quartets, though under-appreciated at the time, have come to be viewed as some of the greatest works created by Beethoven.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b0b949d1)
The Meaning of Beaches, Barra Beach

A new series of essays by popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature, Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised five series of essays The Meaning of Trees and The Meaning of Flowers. Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of 5 iconic British beaches all unique and quintessentially British in different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery celebrated in her previous essays.

Barra's 'Great Beach' (An Tràigh Mhòr) symbolises survival and ingenuity the only beach airport in the world with scheduled flights and tides and wind dictating whether aircraft can land. Barra's Great Beach has twice saved islanders from disaster and ruin. In times of famine, the cockles found in great quantity on the beach formed an essential part of the islanders' diet when crops failed, not a rare occurrence on Barra. Cockles collected by the cart-load were shared across the island. The beach has also saved the island economically. Carrageen, a fine seaweed and a ubiquitous glossy thickening agent in so many modern foods, can be gathered in significant quantities here. The sand is calcium rich, made of crushed shells making it a very different dazzling white beach, compared to the usual British brown silica sand beaches. Compton Mackenzie, author of Whisky Galore, the world famous novel of whisky smuggling, lived over-looking Barra beach. Barra Airport beach is bordered by machair which is a Gaelic word meaning fertile low lying grassy plain. This is the name given to one of the rarest habitats in Europe which only occurs on exposed western coasts of Scotland and Ireland.

THU 23:00 Late Junction (b0b949r5)
Verity Sharp with a Shiva Feshareki mixtape

Ahead of the Pioneers of Sound prom, composer and turntablist Shiva Feshareki uses her trademark turntable techniques to craft a Late Junction mixtape brimming with new compositions and surprising juxtapositions.

Shiva works closely with the physicality of sound. In her electronic work she focuses on sound-manipulation and sampling, working closely with records and turntables and the interaction of tone, texture and space. In her work as a composer she specialises in acoustic spatialisation, and often uses collaboration and deep improvisation to explore different ideas. Last year she won a BASCA British Composer Award for innovation.

Verity Sharp also presents new guitar compositions from the curator of the Alan Lomax archive, Nathan Salsburg and explores the wide eyed mysticism of Irish group United Bible Studies.

Produced by Alannah Chance for Reduced Listening.

Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), A local man - Albion

Ralph Vaughan Williams was a composer with a self-consciously national voice, who nonetheless believed passionately in the importance of localism. Indeed, he saw healthy music-making in each community as the ultimate source of national musical vitality, and longed for a time when every major town in Britain would have its own orchestra. His respect for folk music and well-known use of traditional melodies reflected a strong response to places, and the people he met there. This week, Donald examines five key locations which were significant throughout the composer's life.

"The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils; The motions of his spirit are dull as night, And his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music." Vaughan Williams chose these words of Shakespeare for his Serenade to Music, a work which in many ways encapsulates his musical philosophy.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b0b94d99)
The Meaning of Beaches, Crosby Beach

A new series of essays by the popular Fiona Stafford, Professor of Literature at Somerville College Oxford, following her much praised three series of essays The Meaning of Trees and two series of The Meaning of Flowers, Fiona explores the symbolism, importance, topicality and surprises of five iconic British beaches all of which are unique and quintessentially British in very different ways. Fiona deconstructs what we thought we knew of these five beaches, with the multiple surprises and eloquent wordsmithery which has captured so much attention for her previous series' of essays.

Crosby Beach marks the end of the Mersey, and the edge of Liverpool. This unstable, dangerous, partly toxic mud beach is now home to Antony Gormley statues, 100 naked bronze figures facing out to sea scattered across the beach, bearing witness to the depth of history and the unpredictable future of this ever-changing beach. It was once the site of vital and modern imports and exports by tall sailing ships, both legal and illegal slavery, goods and hopes. Many shipwrecks have occurred at Crosby beach and Britain's last slave ship sailed out of Liverpool harbour past Crosby beach in 1807. The beach is part soft sand, part mud with a risk of fast tides meaning bathing is banned and the beach has many tide warnings. Attempts to stabilise the beach have been made since the mid 19th century - including attempts to build a sea wall, a scheme to plant old Christmas trees and the use of bombed buildings from the Blitz in WW2 making some parts of the beach potentially hazardous due to asbestos from remnants of those buildings sometimes being found. Crosby was also the site of the SDP's most famous by-election victory for Shirley Williams. Crosby beach has an ancient and very modern history.

Master Musicians of the Aga Khan Music Initiative with Kathryn Tickell

Master Musicians of the Aga Khan Music Initiative in session with Kathryn Tickell, plus a Road Trip from Shetland and a Mixtape from American folk and blues artist Joe Newberry.

The Aga Khan Music Initiative was set up in 2000 to support traditional musicians in Central Asia, with the aim of preserving and developing the heritage culture of the region. It has since expanded into Africa, South Asia and the Middle East. The session features two musicians from Syria and one from Uzbekistan: Basel Rajoub, is an award-winning saxophonist and composer-improviser from Syria; Feras Charestan is an accomplished and innovative performer on the qanun, a Middle Eastern zither; and Abbos Kosimov, who comes from a famous musical family in Uzbekistan, is a master performer on the doira, an Uzbek tambourine

Singer and multi-instrumentalist Inge Thomson takes us on a Road Trip to Shetland, whose long isolation has produced a musical culture all its own. She reports from her home on Fair Isle.
