9.30am Building a Library: Sarah Devonald compares recordings of Mozart's Serenade No.10 in B-flat, 'Gran Partita', K.361/370a - and picks a favourite.

'Gran Partita' as a subtitle implies that Mozart's Serenade No.10 is a large ambitious work, and although the work is clearly conceived as a whole 'cycle', it was not ascribed to the score by the composer himself. Mozart's vast 7-movement work for 13 wind instruments has an elusive compositional history and was thought for a long time to have been composed in 1780 or 1781 for a performance in Munich. No mention of the Serenade appears in any of Mozart's letters from that time and, in the 1970s, when the new critical edition of Mozart's works was published, after exhaustive studies of the autograph, it is now believed that the work was first performed in 1784 at a benefit concert for the Vienna-based basset-horn player Anton Stadler. The Serenade also bears the hallmarks of Mozart's later writing and certainly postdates the two wind serenades in E flat and C minor that were definitely composed in 1782.

The mysterious circumstances of both the subtitle 'Gran Partita' and the many versions of the score give the performer some interesting challenges, which Sarah Devonold discusses with Andrew McGregor.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m0009b8v)
Cole, Harry and the masks of theatre

Tom Service presents.

As the ENO stages a new production of The Mask of Orpheus retelling the Orpheus myth in an innovative way, we talk to composer Harrison Birtwistle. He speaks candidly about the origins of the piece, its pioneering musical language and about the difficulties of realising his artistic dreams. We also hear from the production's director Daniel Kramer, and conductor and ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins.

We take a look at the landscape of music charities in the UK today, to see how much they are doing to fill the gaps left by the state and also how their innovations can be supported.

And a new book 'The Letters of Cole Porter', compiled by Cliff Eisen and Dominic McHugh, reveals surprising insights into the great American composer and songwriter's attitudes toward music theatre, money and success... and those he loved. With a contribution by the singer Sarah Fox, who has performed and recorded some of his songs.

SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m0009b93)
Orchestral storms and vocal tricks with singer and composer Sarah Dacey

Singer and composer Sarah Dacey is not only a member of the innovative vocal trio Juice Ensemble, but is also a composer and violinist with fond memories of playing in string quartets and youth orchestras as a teenager.

Her choice of music today ranges from a haunting traditional tune from Northumberland discovered when she was writing music for a play at the National Theatre, to the stunning vistas created by Richard Strauss in his cinematic Alpine Symphony.

Sarah also plays a stunning piece of vocalized Quincy Jones by the French precursors to the Swingle Singers, Les Doubles Six, and reveals that she understands more about the pianistic talents of her great grandmother since listening to Martha Argerich playing a certain scherzo by Chopin.

At two o’clock Sarah’s Must Listen piece is an orchestral explosion of sound featuring a groundbreaking instrument.

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

SAT 18:30 Opera on 3 (m0009b9c)
Meyerbeer Les Huguenots

'Fairground farce' : Robert Schumann

Martin Handley presents this performance from the Opera Bastille in Paris - home of Grand Opera - with expert Sarah Hibberd. Robert Schumann's criticism came from Meyerbeer's use of the Lutheran chorale 'Eine feste burg' to associate with the Huguenot characters in the opera, but it certainly didn't put Paris audiences off, racking up 1,000 performances by the end of the century.

Les Huguenots was a no expenses spared high octane sequel to 'Robert le Diable' Meyerbeer's huge success from five years before in 1831. Indeed this was a return of the dream team - Robert le Diable had made the reputations not only of Meyerbeer, but Librettist Eugene Scribe and Louis-Désiré Véron, the director of the Paris Opera.

This time the top team were back after five years of preparation and 'Les Huguenots' promised an epic Melodrama set against the historical backdrop of the St.Bartholemew's Day Massacre, in which French Protestants were murdered in huge numbers by their Catholic countrymen. Five Acts, good tunes, a huge cast and lavish settings it had all the signs of success before the curtain even opened for Act One.

SUN 09:00 Sunday Morning (m0009c5x)
Sarah Walker with an inspiring musical mix

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.

Music with Czech, Spanish and Brazilian roots features among Sarah’s colourful choices today as she explores a wealth of sounds, textures and harmonies.

A lively symphony by Haydn is balanced with a surprisingly modern-sounding Renaissance choral piece by Thomas Tallis, while the viola d’amore and a very special design of lute are among the intriguing sonorities Sarah has on offer. There’ll be expertly interwoven oboe and soprano lines from J.S. Bach and equally mesmerising music from Bach’s musical hero, Buxtehude. Plus skittish chamber music by Cecile Chaminade and some orchestration from Tchaikovsky that Sarah hears as three-dimensional, alongside a touch of award-winning Scottish folk music.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m0009c5z)
Peter Tatchell

Peter Tatchell was still a teenager, living in Australia, when he started on what has been a long and headline-grabbing career of political protest. He was only fifteen when he began campaigning against the death penalty, and in support of aboriginal rights. At the age of seventeen, he realised he was gay, and the struggle for gay rights became his increasing focus: he was a leading activist in the Gay Liberation Front in the 1970s, and, more recently, a campaigner for same-sex marriage. He gained international celebrity for his attempted citizen's arrest of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe in 1999 and again in 2001, on charges of torture and human rights abuses. Beaten by Mugabe’s bodyguards, he suffered permanent eye and brain damage. He has also been beaten up by Neo-Nazis in Moscow, and held in prisons across the world. He says, ruefully: “I’m the master of the motorcade ambush”. One of his tactics has been literally to run into the road and throw himself in front of official limousines; he did it not just to Mugabe, but also to Tony Blair – protesting against the war in Iraq – and John Major.

In a rare personal interview, Peter Tatchell talks about the early experiences which fired him into trying to change the world. He grew up at a time when homosexuality was still illegal in Australia - his mother believed it was against her Christian principles. And yet despite this Peter loves, and forgives her.

The music list is a mix of stirring protest and softer romantic pieces which help Peter escape from daily pressures. Choices include Prokofiev’s “Battle on the Ice” from the film score to Eistenstein’s Alexander Nevsky; Mozart’s “The Magic Flute”; Prince; and the jazz drummer Billy Cobham.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0009c65)
The Simple Truth

Isaac Newton's 'Truth is ever to be found in simplicity...' has often been echoed in music by many of the great composers down the ages. But during the 20th and 21st centuries, akin to movements in the visual arts, some composers have pared down their music to a few seemingly basic elements. But how difficult is it to achieve meaningful musical simplicity and what's the difference between that and mind-numbingly banal simple-is-as-simple-does?

With the help of composer Howard Skempton and Tate Modern curator Emma Lewis, Tom Service discovers the hard and often complex truths about simplicity.

David Papp (producer)

"Dreams are the royal road to the unconscious" said Sigmund Freud. And the unconscious is a storehouse for unacceptable ideas or desires, traumatic memories & emotions we repress. We all dream - and not just while we sleep. So what can our dreams tell us about ourselves and the society we live in?

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m0009c67)
Plot 5779: Unearthing Elizabeth Siddall

Actor Lily Cole is the voice of Elizabeth Siddall in a documentary in which the first 'supermodel' of the Victorian period presents her own story, debunking romantic myths and stripping away the literary and artistic interpretations of her life. Siddall is famous as the model for Pre-Raphaelite paintings such as John Millais’ Ophelia, Walter Deverell's Twelfth Night and Dante Gabriel Rossetti's Beata Beatrix. Using the anniversary of her exhumation in Highgate cemetery as the focal point, 150 years later, Elizabeth climbs out of her grave to tell us her story – and listens to the opinions of today’s historians and critics.

Elizabeth Siddall: Lily Cole
Dante Gabriel Rossetti: Will Kirk
Other parts played by Lucy Reynolds, Neil McCaul and Heather Craney.

Peter Mills, guide at Highgate Cemetery

20.30 - 21.00 The Grape That Rolled Under the Fridge
Imagine if your shadow were the keeper of all your secrets - a lucrative prize for unscrupulous thieves, profit-driven business and state monitoring alike. Set in a future world where advancements in technology allow accurate monitoring of everyone’s activities by directly communicating with a person’s shadow, which stores entire histories about their owner. When Seth’s shadow is stolen, with all of its secrets, she has to get it back - and fast. An Afrofuturist tale about identity, familial relationships and the ever encroaching surveillance state by award-winning writer Matilda Ibini.

SUN 21:00 Radio 3 in Concert (m0009c69)
Summer festivals across Europe

Fiona Talkington presents some of the best of this summer's concerts from across Europe.

Tonight we're back at the Feldafing Festival in Bavaria, and at the Mozart Festival in Wurzburg and we're also at the Bad Kissinger summer Festival.

Kit Armstrong is the pianist in Franck's Piano Quintet, a role taken at the premiere by Camille Saint-Saens, in a work which struck one member of the original audience for its emotional intensity - and that member of the audience? Franz Liszt.

Unsuk Chin brings us more up to date - in fact this performance is the premiere of this particular re-imagining of her opera 'Alice in Wonderland', played by the Karajan Academy ensemble of the Berlin Philharmonic, which was set up by Herbert von Karajan over 40 years ago for young musicians to be taught and mentored by members of the Berlin Philharmonic.

And finally, the Ural Philharmonic and their music director Dmitry Liss leave their base in Ekaterinburg to bring Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony to Bad Kissinger. As Tchaikovsky said after the symphony's premiere "Not everything is sad - There are simple but potent pleasures. Enjoy other people's happiness".

SUN 23:00 A Singer's World (m0009c6c)
Wanderer

Baritone Benjamin Appl dips a paw into the great honeypot of German Lieder, French melodies and English art song. He finds music and lyrics which he matches in a very down-to-earth way to his everyday experience as a Lieder singer in the 21st century. In this programme he talks about having to move to where the work is, the issue of gender in songs, our relationship with nature, learning repertoire, and dealing with the voice. Includes songs by Duparc, Strauss, Schubert, Barber, Gurney and Vaughan-Williams. Features singers such as Brigitte Fassbaender, Bryn Terfel, Benjamin Luxon, Christoph Pregardien and Jessye Norman.

Muzio Clementi was one of the 18th and 19th century’s most revered musicians – a star performer, a composer admired by Czerny, Beethoven and Chopin and an astute musical businessman. However, he also had his detractors in his own time and history hasn’t been as kind to him as to the greater names of his time – Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Today his name is unfamiliar to most but it is certainly better known than the music he wrote. He was fortunate to have interactions with perhaps the world's three greatest composers, but this fortune may have also worked against him - putting him in direct competition with them. Over this week of programmes, Donald Macleod explores Clementi’s contact with the greatest composers of his day, reassessing the life and music of the man known as the “father of the piano” in the light of these encounters.

In Monday’s programme, Donald examines the musicians who impacted on Clementi in his formative years and explores the remarkable circumstances which brought the child prodigy Clementi to live in his adopted land of England.

The Russian Soul

Live from Wigmore Hall, London, the Borodin Quartet, one of the world's legendary ensembles, returns with an all-Russian programme. The quartet joins forces with the renowned Irish pianist, Barry Douglas in Shostakovich's powerful Piano Quintet, one of the composer's best-known chamber works. It was written for the Beethoven Quartet who gave its premiere in Moscow in 1941, and then won Shostakovich the Stalin Prize in 1941. The Borodin Quartet also play the elegiac Andante cantabile from Tchaikovsky's 1st String Quartet, and Barry Douglas plays two movements from Tchaikovsky's cycle, The Seasons.

Myths, legends and Nordic landscapes

For the opening night of The Oxford Lieder Festival, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and conductor Jac van Steen join soprano Camilla Tilling and bass-baritone Neal Davies for an evening exploring songs of myths and legends. The first half is devoted entirely to Franz Schubert, who was fascinated with classical mythology; his incidental music to the play about Greek legend Princess Rosamunde leads into six of his songs, all orchestrated by other great composers - Brahms, Reger and Berlioz. Two songs by Hugo Wolf are followed by Sibelius's wonderfully evocative tone poem Luonnotar, a depiction of the creation of the world from Finnish folklore, with words from the epic poetry of the Kalevala and sung here by Camilla Tilling. Finally, both Neal and Camilla sing three songs from Grieg's music to Henrik Ibsen's play Peer Gynt, which was based on a fairy tale about a lonely Norwegian hunter, interspersed with the first suite that Grieg created from the original.

Presented by Nicola Heywood Thomas, recorded at Oxford Town Hall last Friday.

MON 22:45 The Way I See It (m0009c2j)
Starry Night and Janna Levin

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, takes us on a deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Leading cultural figures in the series include Grammy- and Emmy-award-winning Hollywood actor and comedian Steve Martin, the author of the New York Times best-selling essay collection Roxane Gay, one of the founders of minimalism – composer Steve Reich and stand-up comedian Margaret Cho. Each episode introduces us to an important art work in the collection, but asks how our own perspective affects our appreciation of the piece.

So, how does a jazz pianist see Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie? How does one of the first black women to write for Marvel comics see the difficult truths in Kara Walker’s sweeping image of African-American history? What does a top fashion designer decode from the clothes painted by an artist in Harlem in the 1930s?

But we start with possibly the most iconic piece in MoMA's collection - Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. Professor Janna Levin is one of America's leading cosmologists; her specialism is understanding black holes. How does she see Van Gogh's night sky, painted from inside an asylum as he battled mental illness?

Producer: Paul Kobrak

Muzio Clementi was one of the 18th and 19th Century’s most revered musicians – a star performer, a composer admired by Czerny, Beethoven and Chopin and an astute musical businessman. However, he also had his detractors in his own time and history hasn’t been as kind to him as to the greater names of his time – Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Today his name is unfamiliar to most but it is certainly better known than the music he wrote. He was fortunate to have interactions with perhaps the world's three greatest composers, but this fortune may have also worked against him - putting him in direct competition with them. Over this week of programmes, Donald Macleod explores Clementi’s contact with the greatest composers of his day, reassessing the life and music of the man known as the “father of the piano” in the light of these encounters.

In Tuesday’s programme, Donald explores the relationship between Clementi and Mozart, the famed contest put on by Emperor Joseph II between the two musicians and the later use of each other’s music. Donald also explores a failed romance which in the aftermath of the contest threatened to derail Clementi's musical career.

The second half features the epic 'Diabelli' Variations. Beethoven poured a lifetime's experience into his final piano work: it's at once playful and profound, an endlessly imaginative (and often funny) set of 33 variations based on an unpromising little waltz by his contemporary, Anton Diabelli.

Muzio Clementi (1752-1832)

Clementi and Beethoven

Muzio Clementi was one of the 18th and 19th century’s most revered musicians – a star performer, a composer admired by Czerny, Beethoven and Chopin and an astute musical businessman. However, he also had his detractors in his own time and history hasn’t been as kind to him as to the greater names of his time – Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Today his name is unfamiliar to most but it is certainly better known than the music he wrote. He was fortunate to have interactions with perhaps the world's three greatest composers, but this fortune may have also worked against him - putting him in direct competition with them. Over this week of programmes, Donald Macleod explores Clementi’s contact with the greatest composers of his day, reassessing the life and music of the man known as the “father of the piano” in the light of these encounters.

In Thursday’s programme, Donald explores the interactions between Clementi and Beethoven in the light of Clementi's move into the world of music publishing and piano manufacture.

Bartok Plus from LSO St Luke's in London with the Carducci Quartet

Fiona Talkington continues Radio 3's Bartok Plus series, in which all six of Bartok's string quartets are put in context alongside works that both influenced the composer's own compositional evolution and chart his journey from Hungary to America. Today, the Carducci Quartet illustrate the influence of Hungarian and Romanian folk dances on Bartok's middle-period compositional style, performing his Romanian Folk Dances and his dance-like 3rd String Quartet. Haydn too was influenced by the folk music of the region and nowhere more than in his tuneful String Quartet in D major with its playful minuet 'alla zingarese', or 'gypsy style'.

Compelling piano from Perth

Recorded last week at Perth concert hall, the acclaimed Ukrainian-born Australian pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk performs a varied recital that opens with Mozart’s deceptively simple sonata K.545 followed by late works by Brahms. Before the interval Liszt’s Etude No. 6 from his Transcendental Etudes sets a funeral-like tone that darkens with a virtuosic transcription of Saint-Saens Dance Macabre for solo piano. Gavrylyuk closes with Mussorgsky’s musical depictions of sketches by his friend the late Viktor Hartmann. Presented by Jamie MacDougall.

Art critic Alastair Sooke, in the company of some of the leading creatives of our age, continues his deep dive into the stunning works in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, whilst exploring what it really means “to see” art.

Today's edition features Harvard professor Steven Pinker. As an experimental psychologist, Steven has written extensively about violence - and for his choice from the gallery's collection he has selected two of Pablo Picasso’s most gruesome depictions of man's inhumanity, Charnel House and Guernica, now housed in Madrid.

Producer: Tom Alban

"The Way I See It" is a co-production of the BBC and the Museum of Modern Art, New York


FRI 23:00 Late Junction (m0009d6s)
A Checklist for the Uncharted

In 1979 the industrial ‘anti-band’ Nurse With Wound printed a list of their favourite artists on the back of their debut LP, a selection of records deemed so obscure it passed into muso mythology and became a trophy list for obsessive collectors. Some of the names were so unknown they were considered to be made-up in-jokes. A compilation of tracks from the list has been released for the first time, focusing on the French artists the band recommended. Verity Sharp plumbs its depths, hopping from lo-fi sci-fi to Zehl prog to macabre ballet music.

Jostling for space is the extraordinary overtone singing of Anna-Maria Hefele as featured in Michael Ostrzyga’s Canticum Novum, sound portraits of Bulgaria and ‘menstrual synthdrone’ from Indonesia.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
A Reduced Listening Production for BBC Radio 3.
