SAT SAT Inspired by one of Nikolai Gogol's most famous short SAT tales, Christmas Eve, the opera is a mix of village comedy SAT and fairy-tale fantasy. The beautiful Oxana will only SAT marry her besotted blacksmith Vakula if he finds the SAT Tsarina's little leather slippers for her. The desperate SAT Vakula finally uses the Devil to help him fulfil his SAT beloved's wish. There is much devilry, mistaken identity, SAT hiding of lovers and drunken villagers along the way. SAT SAT Written in 1885, the opera is a revision of one SAT Tchaikovsky had written ten years earlier, Vakula the SAT Smith, with which he had won a competition set by the SAT Russian Music Society. But his first attempt at setting SAT this story never won the public's favour and, in 1885, he SAT took up the score again, made revisions and changed the SAT title to Cherevichki. The music ranges from popular dances SAT and Christmas carols to deeply moving lyrical scenes such SAT as Vakula's despairing monologue in Act 3. SAT SAT Solokha (a witch) ......

Composer and writer Ergo Phizmiz wanders through SAT Klee's paintings in the company of their creator, evoking SAT their vivid colours and whimsical humour in intricately SAT composed soundscapes. Klee takes Ergo on a hot-air balloon SAT ride which, like a magic carpet, miraculously flies them SAT to Tunisia, the land where he 'became a painter'.

SUN SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show b00p693f (Listen) SUN Instrumental to the Baroque SUN Catherine Bott chairs a round-table discussion about how SUN period performance practice, and our perception of it, has SUN developed since the somewhat experimental days of the SUN early music 'revival' in the 1960s, and the impact it has SUN had on music-making across the board. SUN SUN She is joined by violinists with very different musical SUN backgrounds: Alison Bury, who has been a member, leader SUN and soloist with some of the best-known ensembles on the SUN circuit, including the Orchestra of the Age of SUN Enlightenment and the London Baroque Solists; Bjarte Eike, SUN a Danish musician whose own ensemble Baroque Fever has SUN performed to great acclaim all over Europe; and Daniel SUN Hope, a very experienced international soloist and chamber SUN musician, who has performed and recorded a huge range of SUN repertoire from Schnittke to Bach. SUN SUN With many examples taken from CD, Catherine also asks how SUN the ideas of early music practitioners and ensembles have SUN developed in recent years. Just how far have ideas about SUN performance style grown since the 1960s and what impact SUN have these ideas had on non-period instrument performers?

SUN SUN Stephen focuses on the Second Piano Concerto, written in SUN the mid-1930s during Martinu's years in Paris. The city SUN was the hothouse of modernism in the 1920s and 30s, SUN attracting artists such as Picasso and composers such as SUN Stravinsky, and while such charismatic figures left their SUN mark on Martinu, the composer nonetheless ploughed his own SUN distinctive artistic furrow, resulting in a very SUN individual voice. Stephen also explores Martinu's Three SUN Inventions for Orchestra, composed at the same time, which SUN paved the way for his subsequent series of five symphonies. SUN SUN 18:30 The Choir b00p69gk (Listen) SUN Sing Hallelujah SUN Aled Jones introduces a special programme celebrating the SUN Sing Hallelujah project.

SUN SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature b00p6swm (Listen) SUN Exploring Our Amazement: Poetry and Its Audience SUN Julian May, a radio producer of poetry programmes for two SUN decades, and whose own poems have appeared in magazines SUN and in books, talks to publishers, people who organise SUN readings and websites, literary historians, poets and SUN their readers to investigate the changing relationship SUN between poetry and its audience through the ages. SUN SUN While poetry was once confined mostly to books or SUN readings, these days it is experienced in many different SUN ways. It is often encountered in a public event rather SUN than as a private reflection, at a reading, or online, as SUN an aspect of a virtual community. It is found on public SUN transport, carved into public buildings, projected onto SUN walls. SUN SUN All this raises questions. Does poetry become accessible, SUN or merely harder to avoid? Does its increased presence SUN indicate that people care for it more and has the audience SUN altered with the means of delivery? Does poetry now matter SUN more - or less? SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00p69gr (Listen) SUN Mark the Music SUN SUN Peter Capaldi and Emily Bruni read poetry and prose on the SUN theme of music, from the metaphysical to the everyday. The SUN programme explores the wide-ranging facets and inescapable SUN power of music - the mystical concept of the music of the SUN spheres, the power of music in childhood and everyday SUN life, music as a psychological tormentor and the beauty of SUN music in performance. SUN SUN With poems by Siegfried Sassoon, Walt Whitman, Thomas SUN Hardy and Pablo Neruda, and prose by Nick Hornby and Louis SUN de Bernieres. Music to complement the readings includes SUN works by Messiaen, Purcell, Pergolesi, Charles Mingus, SUN Neil Young, and Philip Glass. SUN SUN In this edition of Words & Music I explore the nature and SUN power of music itself, in all its many guises. Music in SUN society and our own individual lives has inspired writers SUN throughout the centuries. Here are some highlights from SUN the programme… SUN SUN Robert Herrick’s poem ‘A Canticle to Apollo’ starts the SUN sequence with music as God’s gift to humanity, leading on SUN to Messiaen’s ethereal Des canyons aux étoiles. Going back SUN to the third century, the Roman grammarian Censorinus SUN questions the nature of music which he feels can be SUN understood through embryology, astronomy and mathematics. SUN His assertion that music can go so far as to rouse the SUN legions in war is reflected in Janacek’s bright and bold SUN Sinfonietta. SUN SUN Another early philosophical concept I have included is SUN Musica Universalis or the Music of the Spheres (frequently SUN accredited to Pythagoras) which associated music with the SUN sun, moon and planets. The 18th century writer, J F H Von SUN Dalberg euphorically describes his vision of cosmic music SUN and a meeting with the spirit of harmony against a back SUN drop of Pergolesi’s Salve Regina in a recording by the SUN counter-tenor, Andreas Scholl. SUN SUN Moving from the lofty and spiritual to the everyday and SUN the role of music in modern life, I’ve selected an extract SUN from Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity. Record obsessed Rob SUN turns up the volume to escape his disastrous love life, SUN seeking solace with Neil Young and contemplating the music SUN to feature at his own funeral which optimistically SUN includes ‘You’re the Best Thing that Ever Happened to Me’ SUN by the empress of soul Gladys Knight. SUN SUN Whilst in adult life many of us turn to music in times of SUN love and loss, we often start our musical journey in SUN childhood with obligatory and unrequested piano lessons SUN ... the patient and imaginative teacher in Alastair Reid’s SUN ‘A Lesson in Music’ makes a valiant effort as she SUN encourages her pupil to ‘play the tune again’ with the SUN backdrop of twinkle, twinkle little star, really Mozart’s SUN Variations on ‘Ah vous dirai-je maman’. SUN SUN Whilst music can often soothe and comfort it can also SUN torment, as in Clara Schumann’s heart rending account of SUN her husband Robert’s descent into insanity as he struggles SUN to compose and express himself in his music. Anne Sexton’s SUN ‘Music Swims Back to Me’ describes an institutionalised SUN young woman as she tries to make sense of her SUN surroundings. As music swims round her muddled mind, the SUN sinister sounds of Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre add SUN to the darkness. SUN SUN But, I also wanted to reflect how music can draw people SUN together. Jack Kerouac’s lucid description of the Beat SUN Generation and Charles Mingus exuberant ‘Better Git It In SUN Your Soul’ are a vibrant reminder of music’s power to SUN ‘excite souls’ (in the words of Censorinus) and to define SUN eras. SUN SUN And to conclude there’s the theme of music as a form of SUN reminiscence. Music can powerfully provoke memories and SUN take us back to times past, either real or imagined. In SUN Cecil Day Lewis’ poem ‘Cornet Solo’ the strain of a mere SUN few distant notes take the narrator back to distant SUN childhood days reflected in the haunting sounds of the SUN spiritual Motherless Child … SUN SUN Thanks to Peter Capaldi and Emily Bruni.

He became MON disengaged from the family playing-card business fairly MON early on - presumably so that he could concentrate on his MON music - but he continued to earn from it. As a result, his MON status as a composer was said to be that of a dilettante; MON he wrote music because he wanted to, not because he had MON to. Perhaps his comfortable personal circumstances explain MON the relaxed mood of much of his output.

THU THU She argues that it is vital that we rediscover the art of THU including young and old in everything we do in order to THU end the prejudice, dismissiveness, disrespect and neglect THU with which many old people are treated today. She THU forcefully makes the case that only when we value the THU contribution the old can make will we enjoy a healthy THU society. THU THU In the 2001 census the number of Britons aged over 60 THU outnumbered those under 16 for the very first time. And THU yet, as Neuberger points out, the elderly are often THU portrayed in the media as a 'problem' issue - with a THU preoccupation with the ethics of euthanasia for the old, THU the difficulties of dealing with dementia and the cost of THU nursing care. Why does it seem that we doubt whether the THU elderly have any useful role to play in society? THU THU Neuberger - one of the first female rabbis in Britain - is THU a high-profile social and medical reformer, a member of THU the House of Lords, and has been the Prime Minister's THU Champion for Volunteering.
