A glass of Chianti would be SAT the ideal accompaniment to this Italian Fantasy which SAT blends the reminiscences of English-speaking travellers SAT and the music of Italy, both authentic and as imagined by SAT visiting composers. SAT It's a series of snapshots, of light older than wine , SAT solitary pines which whisper of pre-Christian SAT conspiracies, of gaudy baroque fountains which , on closer SAT inspection, may not be at all suitable for the polite SAT visitor, of food, sea, castles and ruins. And of course SAT there are the tourists, the great hordes of substantial SAT dollar-bringing virgins as memorably sketched by SAT e.e.cummings, with their Baedekers, Mothers and Kodaks. SAT We hear from the earlier tourists of the age of Byron and SAT Shelley, awed by the ruins of Rome and Pompeii. And from SAT Mark Twain, perhaps rather less awed at Pompeii and more SAT concerned with the realities of life and taxes before the SAT eruption. If Twain had made his visit a few years later he SAT would have been able to ride up Vesuvius on the new SAT funicular railway so famously celebrated in song. SAT Robert Browning, that great Italophile, describes a SAT windswept feast after wine making, and who else but SAT Elizabeth David to mouth wateringly describe the famous SAT white truffles of Alba. SAT Music includes Berlioz' Harold in Italy which was SAT inspired by Byron's Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, and the SAT Byronic Bob Dylan is also inspired by Rome. Thomas Hardy, SAT rather unexpectedly, describes hearing a Strauss waltz SAT while on the Palatine. There is music from Respighi, his SAT famous descriptions of the pines and fountains of Rome , SAT as well as one of his Ancient Airs and Dances at the end, SAT the original renaissance version of which is heard earlier SAT in the programme on the lute. The impressionistic music of SAT Debussy follows the impressionistic verse of Gabrielle SAT D'Annunzio, Sir John Betjeman is heard reading (to music) SAT his own gentle parody of Longfellow's verse and.we hear SAT from an Italian Trallalero team, a traditional form of SAT singing from Liguria, performed while standing in a circle. SAT We end with the great Italian poet Leopardi and his hymn SAT to the power of the imagination, L'infinito. SAT So conjure up the Italy of your imagination - no Baedeker SAT required.

SUN SUN 21:45 Sunday Feature b00lxrp7 (Listen) SUN Searching for Alfred in the Shadow of Tennyson SUN Poet and writer Ruth Padel goes in search of the real SUN Alfred, Lord Tennyson, a poet who for many people today is SUN an iconic image of the Victorian era. We know him as Queen SUN Victorian's Poet Laureate, an imposing figure with a beard SUN and cape and the author of long poems often based on myths SUN and legends. But this image hides other facets of Tennyson SUN and obscures the fact that many creative artists today are SUN drawing on his work. SUN SUN Championing him as a poet for our times as well as his SUN own, Ruth talks to figures as diverse as poet and former SUN Laureate Andrew Motion, novelists Andrew O' Hagan and Adam SUN Foulds, poet Jo Shapcott, rock musician Dani Filth, and SUN academics Robert Douglas-Fairhurst and Angela Leighton. SUN She hears how the figure of Tennyson has been an SUN inspiration to them. SUN SUN Ruth also investigates the real Alfred behind the image of SUN grandeur. She finds out about his preoccupation with what SUN he called the 'black blood' of his family, whose members SUN were prone to breakdowns, alcoholism and madness. And she SUN hears how these concerns led to Tennyson's ability to SUN articulate neurosis and loss in his work even though, as SUN Poet Laureate, he became an Establishment figure. SUN SUN 22:30 Words and Music b00k4gc6 (Listen) SUN The Double SUN SUN A sequence of poetry, prose and music exploring the SUN disturbing world of shadows and ghostly doubles, with SUN readings by Janie Dee and Nicholas Farrell. SUN SUN With works by Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Louis Stevenson, SUN Dostoevsky, Heine, Wilde, Robert Lowell and Khalil SUN Ghibran, interspersed with music by Bach, Boulez, Schubert SUN and Steve Reich. SUN SUN Ever since reading Dostoevsky's novella The Double, I SUN have been haunted by the idea of the doppelganger - the SUN sinister ghostly twin. Not only does it make great SUN fiction, but the idea of the 'shadow aspect' as SUN expounded by Jung, and the embodiment of all our repressed SUN inadequacies, has resonance with all manner of modern SUN anxieties. This episode of Words and Music is an attempt SUN to capture some of the spectrum of great writing on this SUN subject - from the worlds of evil twins, nervous shadows, SUN and slowly disintegrating mental faculties - and ally this SUN with music that not only explores ideas of doubling, but SUN creates its own jittery, confused, and occasionally SUN violent musical narrative. SUN SUN Starting at the lighter end of the spectrum, Robert SUN Dodsley's whimsical 'Song' casts doubts on the SUN surety of human perception, and sets up the gentle SUN dislocation of Steve Reich's 'New York SUN Counterpoint'. Reich, a composer whose compositional SUN practice explores ideas of phasing, placing similar SUN musical material out of sync with itself, seemed a perfect SUN place to begin, and is someone whose work I return to. SUN SUN Eighth century Chinese poet Li Po's, 'Drinking Alone SUN with Moonlight', gives an interesting perspective on the SUN solitary, talking to oneself and the moon, creating in SUN one's shadow the beginning of a more sinister double SUN which is soon joined by Francis Carey Slater's darker SUN 'Shadow' - one borne perhaps from past trauma. It is SUN upsetting recollection that is the theme of Heine's SUN famous poem that follows, where a man encounters his own SUN double staring at his now ex-lover's window, the sense SUN of melancholy heightened by a fragile, wavering 1948 SUN recording of Chopin's fourth Prelude by Benno SUN Moiseiwitsch. SUN SUN Surprisingly no less poetic, psychiatrist Carl Jung states SUN his case for a psychological double, and in a canny SUN fictional parallel Stevenson's Dr Jekyll recalls his SUN theories on the 'primitive duality of man'. Edmund SUN Campion's work 'Losing Touch' for vibraphone and SUN electronics begins to unpick this duality, as the SUN electronics create a nervous, jumpy response to the SUN sweeter toned vibraphone. There is also a touch of the SUN cosmic in the starry interplay between mallets and SUN circuitboards as both readers reappear with Simon SUN Armitage's miniature 'Gemini' - a disturbing image SUN of the celestial twins that speaks volumes within its few SUN words. SUN SUN A multi layered musical double appears next as the twin SUN strands of Bach's canonic two-part invention meander off SUN in joyous self-reflection, but on another level are SUN joined, like a ghostly image in a photograph, by pianist SUN Glenn Gould's distant, disembodied humming. In John SUN Clare's 'For the Vision of Time' the stooped old man SUN who whispers with his alarmingly more upright shadow may SUN well be sharing the same concerns as the Fleet Foxes in SUN their haunting 'Tiger Mountain Peasant Song'. The SUN disembodiment intensifies, with Pierre Boulez's SUN 'Dialogue de l'Ombre Double', as an amplified solo SUN clarinet dances with a taped shadow of itself. As with SUN Gould's humming, here the eerie musical penumbra comes SUN from the speakers being placed inside a piano, the natural SUN reverberations enhancing the sense of dislocation. SUN SUN Duality replaces dislocation in Sir Edmund William SUN Gosse's 'The Twofold Voice', as he imagines a SUN classical double, whilst Mr Golyadkin, the hapless hero of SUN Dostoevsky's novella, comes to the unhappy conclusion SUN that the man sat opposite him is 'none other than he SUN himself, another Mr Golyadkin'. And here the shadows SUN have become real, the internalised fears and inadequacies SUN have taken on human form. Mr Golyadkin's meeting with SUN his double only serves to hasten his mental decline, and SUN the two plodding double basses of Ornette Coleman's epic SUN collective improvisation 'Free Jazz' brilliantly SUN illustrates the division of the Golyadkin mind set. SUN Isolated one on each stereo channel the contrasting styles SUN of bassists Charlie Haden and Scott LaFaro become the two SUN increasingly frantic sides of Mr Golyadkin's splitting SUN persona. SUN SUN As 'Free Jazz' disintegrates into the sound of the SUN sea, the conversation becomes internalised as Mike SUN Barlow's 'The Boat in my Brain' offers a serene, yet SUN confused picture of losing one's mind, and this serenity SUN is reflected in the gentle rocking of Steve Reich's SUN string work 'Duet', as the two violins occasionally SUN strain the timing of their canonic melodies over the SUN throbbing of the strings below. In an extract from 'The SUN Madman' Khalil Gibran imagines not two but seven selves SUN discoursing at night, and it is these seven voices that SUN proceed to wind round each other in Purcell's In Nomine SUN for seven viols. SUN SUN In a brief diversion into the world of the reflected SUN double, we hear Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray selling his SUN soul for the chance to stay as beautiful as his portrait, SUN whilst the distinctly unbeautiful 'Fat man in the SUN mirror' unravels at the sight of what he has become and SUN loses himself in somewhat manic childhood reminiscence. SUN This mania intensifies as the two voices of Steve SUN Reich's early tape piece 'Come Out' grow further SUN apart and multiply, like the voices in one's head, and SUN are muddled by the chirping of Lars Fredriksen's 108 SUN Chinese crickets. The 'heavy animal part' of man from SUN Gosse's earlier poem returns, trying to escape, perhaps SUN like Gibran's seven selves, from inside James SUN Stephen's 'Cage', in a 'busy, timid rage'. And SUN it is this busy timidity that characterises Mr SUN Golyadkin's second appearance - no longer so sure of SUN mind, having been thoroughly unsettled by his double. SUN SUN Heine's Doppelganger reappears too, but this time in SUN Schubert's song setting, voiced with clarity and power SUN by the baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, whose anger at SUN his shadowy double is perhaps a precursor of Jung's SUN 'demonic dynamism'. It is certainly a demonic force SUN that then motivates and delights the transformed Mr Hyde, SUN as he relishes, despite the agonies of his transformation, SUN the possibilities of unfettered wickedness. SUN SUN An excerpt from Bartok's second string quartet, written SUN during the hardships of the first world war, provides the SUN tumbling violent energy that Mr Hyde now possesses and SUN brings us to the climax of Poe's 'William Wilson', SUN where the real and the psychological meet, and in killing SUN his double Wilson has ultimately destroyed something vital SUN within himself, something I'm sure Jung would have SUN agreed with. The agonies both real and imagined hit Wilson SUN with the force of Harrison Birtwistle's orchestral SUN climax, but, as with so many of the texts, it is hard to SUN know how much of this is real, and how much the separation SUN of the conscious and unconscious mind. Paul Auster's SUN poem, 'n memory of myself', brings the journey back SUN to the internal, where maybe this separation has now SUN become irreversible. SUN SUN My thanks to readers Janie Dee and Nicholas Farrell for SUN bringing to such vivid life the double world I had SUN imagined.

Tennyson was only 24 when he MON wrote it, soon after hearing of the death of his dear MON friend Arthur Hallam. MON MON Feaver believes the poem is about far more than physical MON travel or coping with grief. For her, Ulysses is about the MON need of the artist always to move forward - not, in her MON case, to succumb to benign pressure to tend her garden or MON be a good grandmother but to pursue her art and to follow MON Tennyson's rallying cry 'to strive, to seek, to find and MON not to yield'.

He wasn't the first or last homosexual man to do TUE so, but the repercussions were calamitous, and the event TUE triggered a crisis from which some believe Tchaikovsky TUE never fully recovered. However, this was also the year of TUE two superlative pieces of music, both awash with TUE references that listeners have since interpreted as TUE autobiographical.
