And having worked with the Chicago Symphony SAT Orchestra, John Adams, Sigur Ros and Bjork, Nico Muhly is SAT one of New York's most diverse composers. He takes up SAT residence with the Britten Sinfonia this month and meets SAT up with Tom in London. SAT SAT And stories are turned into music as people living in the SAT East End of London re-discover the power of music when SAT it's combined with their memories of home, in composer SAT Helen Chadwick's Dalston Songs. SAT SAT Producer: Jeremy Evans. SAT SAT Alan Gilbert SAT SAT Tom talks to American conductor Alan Gilbert in his first SAT season as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic, SAT ahead of his first UK appearances with the orchestra at SAT London’s Barbican Centre. SAT SAT Gilbert follows in the footsteps of recent incumbents SAT Lorin Maazel and Kurt Masur, and inherits a legacy which SAT also includes Mahler, Toscanini and Leonard Bernstein. But SAT in recent years, despite the technical brilliance of the SAT orchestra under Maazel, the New York Phil has lost some SAT ground to other US orchestras including Los Angeles and SAT Cleveland. Gilbert talks about new repertoire and a new SAT vision for the orchestra – and how he plans to make it the SAT pride of New York. SAT SAT Alan Gilbert conducts the New York Philharmonic at the SAT Barbican Centre in London on 3 and 4 February SAT SAT Nico Muhly SAT SAT Composer Nico Muhly, who lives in New York, has been SAT hailed as one of the brightest young talents on the SAT American music scene. Still in his late 20s, he has worked SAT as an arranger and collaborator with Björk and Philip SAT Glass, and created studio albums fusing the worlds of SAT acoustic and electronic music. SAT SAT Muhly is currently touring with the Britten Sinfonia, for SAT whom he’s written two new works including one for tenor SAT Mark Padmore and violinist Pekka Kuusisto. Tom meets him SAT at the Roundhouse in Camden and discovers that his biggest SAT musical inspirations are English composers – from Byrd, SAT Tallis and Gibbons to Benjamin Britten.

SAT SAT 15:00 World Routes b00q8yb8 (Listen) SAT The Unthanks SAT SAT A review of new CDs of world music, and an exploration of SAT the folk traditions of Northumberland in a session with SAT The Unthanks. Led by sisters Rachel and Becky Unthank, the SAT band's new album 'Here's the tender coming' is inspired by SAT a song about a boat arriving to press the men of the North SAT East into war. Presented by Lucy Duran. SAT SAT Rachel and Becky Unthank grew up in a family of folk SAT musicians, and began singing themselves from an early age SAT as an acapella duet. They were influenced as much by the SAT sea shanties of the area as the women's songs, and their SAT music is a fresh look at the music of an area of England SAT which is still rich in folk traditions. Their three albums SAT have been well received - their last was nominated for the SAT Mercury Prize - and they are now firm fixtures in SAT festivals throughout the UK. Their appeal is now reaching SAT far beyond folk circles: their new album was recently SAT given 4.5 stars by The Sun.

Last July at his own Styriarte Festival in SAT Graz, Austria fulfilled a long held desire to conduct SAT Gershwin's opera and this recording was made then. SAT Harnoncourt is adamant that Porgy is an opera not a SAT musical and in his performances has adopted many of the SAT cuts Gershwin himself made during the initial run of the SAT opera.

They also speak about the loss of SAT traditions that bind the community together and have been SAT handed down from generation to generation. SAT SAT With music by composer Damian Montagu and Fair Isle SAT musicians, including his collaboration with singer Lise SAT Sinclair on the song Empty Ocean. It sets Paul Rich's poem SAT The Halibut Fisher's Saturday Night, about the great hauls SAT of the past compared to today, where the ocean is empty of SAT fish and the seabed smooth from over-fishing. There is SAT also Sinclair's poem Silent, portraying the disappearance SAT of seabirds from the skies because of the lack of sandeels SAT for feeding. SAT SAT SAT Damian Montagu SAT SAT Damian Montagu is a composer and music producer. He SAT attained an Arts degree from UEA before working in SAT television (LWT and Planet 24) and marketing for four SAT years. SAT SAT He then embarked on a career as a composer and music SAT producer, co-founding Montagu Bourcier in 1997, which SAT quickly became one of London's leading composition and SAT sound design companies. Montagu Bourcier worked with the SAT world's leading agencies and production houses, and scored SAT music on over one hundred and fifty brand campaigns. SAT SAT His film scores include 'The Cookie Thief' (Palme d'Or SAT nominated) and 'Subterrain', which was a collaboration SAT with Michael Nyman, together with award winning films such SAT as 'Football' (staring Helena Bonham-Carter). Documentary SAT scores include The South Bank Show, Geo (a 20 part series) SAT and 'The Science of Beauty', to name a few. SAT SAT He has worked with top directors including Paul Arden, SAT Daniel Barber, Roman Coppola, David Kellogg, Dominic SAT Murphy, Gore Verbinsky and Will Van der Vlugt.

SAT SAT Also in 2007, together with David Hill, Damian formed SAT Radial. SAT SAT Lise Sinclair SAT SAT Lise Sinclair lives in Fair Isle, the remote island midway SAT between Shetland and Orkney, where she was born (1971) and SAT brought up.

She is a singer and musician who has SAT recorded and performed as widely as Reykjavik, Norway, SAT Washington DC and Glasgow; she has recently composed and SAT performed a suite for cello, harp and voice based on SAT Shetland poetry.

SUN SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show b00kh2c8 (Listen) SUN Thomas Campion SUN SUN Catherine Bott reflects on the life, poetry and music of SUN the Elizabethan/Jacobean London-based physician Thomas SUN Campion. He was as celebrated for his poems as for his SUN many songs, and his most famous piece is considered to be SUN Never Weather-Beaten Saile, which was familiar as a hymn SUN for many years after his death. SUN SUN Campion's legacy of love songs and a large collection of SUN poetry and pamphlets on music and literature, as well as SUN his many masques, have made him an important figure in the SUN history of Renaissance art, even if he is perhaps less SUN well-known than his contemporary John Dowland. SUN SUN The programme includes a wide selection of recordings of SUN Campion's music alongside readings from his poetry and his SUN masques.

SUN The Concierto de Aranjuez, with its emotionally charged SUN slow movement, is one of classical music's most popular SUN pieces. It was composed during Rodrigo's years in Paris SUN before the outbreak of the Second World War where the SUN composer and his wife were living in near poverty. Its SUN success made the blind composer world famous. Written in SUN braille, it is one of the earliest examples of a concerto SUN for guitar and orchestra and before its first performance, SUN Rodrigo suffered sleepless nights worried that the quiet SUN sounding guitar wouldn't be heard about the forces of the SUN orchestra. However, Rodrigo's subtle orchestration and SUN novel writing for the instrument proved his fears SUN groundless. SUN SUN The other concerto in the programme is the Fantasia para SUN un Gentilhombre written for the great Spanish guitarist SUN Segovia which draws on some of the rich heritage of music SUN for the guitar from Spain's past, as Craig Ogden explains SUN and demonstrates. The programme was recorded before an SUN audience at LSO St Luke's in London. SUN SUN 18:30 The Choir b00q8zh7 (Listen) SUN David Willcocks Celebration, Episode 1 SUN SUN Sir David Willcocks has been at the heart of British SUN musical life for more than half a century.

SUN SUN 22:00 Sunday Feature b00q900t (Listen) SUN Seven and a Half Years SUN SUN Susannah Clapp explores why the unforgettable Russian SUN playwright Chekhov believed that he would be remembered SUN for no more than seven and a half years. SUN SUN Shortly before he died, the great Russian playwright and SUN short story writer Anton Chekhov, confided in a friend SUN that he believed he would be remembered for seven, perhaps SUN seven and a half years. One hundred and seven and a half SUN years later, in the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary SUN of his birth - and now that Chekhov is second only to SUN Shakespeare in popularity as a playwright across the globe SUN - Susannah Clapp explores his obsession with memory and SUN the passage of time, and his fear of being forgotten. She SUN gathers a special Chekhov repetory company, including Anna SUN Maxwell Martin, at the BBC's Maida Vale studios, to SUN discuss and perform new translations by the young poet SUN Sasha Dugdale, of Three Sisters, his most memory-obsessed SUN play; and hears from Chekhov experts in Britain and SUN Moscow, including the translator Michael Frayn, the SUN director Declan Donnellan and Anatoly Smelianski, director SUN of the Moscow Art Theatre school, to tell a story of SUN broken clocks, spinning tops, tuberculosis and immortality. SUN SUN Actors: Melissa Advani, Bruce Alexander, Joseph SUN Cohen-Cahn, Emerald O'Hanrahan, Tessa Nicholson, Anna SUN Maxwell Martin and Piers Wehner. SUN SUN Producer: Beaty Rubens. SUN SUN 22:45 Words and Music b00q900w (Listen) SUN Sons of Russia SUN SUN To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Anton Chekhov's SUN birth, actors Mackenzie Crook and Jason Isaacs explore SUN male fragility in Russian literature. The tensions between SUN generations and classes are revealed with readings from SUN Gogol, Turgenev and Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, whilst SUN adulterous love infuses his short story The Lady with the SUN Dog. Perhaps above all, why do these men have such an SUN attachment to their Motherland? Why does the average SUN Russian 'Ivan' place his country above everything else, SUN even God? With music by Prokofiev, Shostakovich and SUN Schnittke. SUN SUN In the past decade, Mackenzie Crook has quickly SUN established himself as a versatile character actor after SUN appearing in the BBC TV comedy The Office and Pirates of SUN the Caribbean films. In early 2010 he returns to his role SUN in the rival of acclaimed play Jerusalem in the West End. SUN Mackenzie reads from Dostoyevsky's Crime & Punishment, SUN Gogol's The Government Inspector and Pushkin's Eugene SUN Onegin. SUN SUN Jason Isaacs, introduced to a new generation of film SUN lovers as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, reads SUN passages from Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard, Three Sisters SUN and short story The Lady with the Dog, as well as extracts SUN from Turgenev and Tolstoy. SUN SUN Producer's note: SUN SUN “In Russia one can only believe.” SUN SUN After reading Anthony Beevor’s Stalingrad, I was struck by SUN the extraordinary sense of belonging Russian troops had to SUN their country. What was it that instilled such passion in SUN the everyday “Ivan”? The word rodina (Motherland) means SUN more than just the place where one is born. It refers to a SUN collective national identity that can never be broken. SUN SUN With this in mind, I was perplexed that there didn’t seem SUN to be many strong role models in the works of Anton SUN Chekhov and other Russian dramatists and writers. Most of SUN the men are weak, susceptible, corrupted or greedy. It SUN seems they have to reach much further back to tales such SUN as Alexander Nevsky and Ivan the Terrible to find a real SUN national hero. SUN SUN Throughout the programme, the voice of Mother Russia (read SUN by Mascha Karp) interjects with passages of the romantic SUN poet Tyutchev, propaganda slogans and a Russian proverb. SUN The translations can be found below in the running order. SUN SUN To start the programme, an 11 year old Dmitri Hvorostovsky SUN sings Motherland hears, a hugely popular tune that all SUN Russians are taught from an early age. It is said that SUN Yuri Gagarin, on the first manned space orbit in 1961, SUN whistled the melody back to ground control. SUN SUN Gogol’s The Government Inspector offers a satirical cross SUN section of Russian society. Schnittke’s Gogol Suite layers SUN Mozartian motives to sardonically refer to the SUN establishment’s delusions of grandeur. SUN SUN Anton Chekhov’s dramatic works stand him out as the titan SUN of the form. Perhaps lesser known, but just as valid, his SUN 220 short stories were able to condense complex human SUN feelings and moral choices that many readers could relate SUN to within a simple narrative. In The Lady with the Dog, SUN unrequited love is directly addressed with the story of SUN middle-aged Moscovite Dmitri Gurov who meets a young wife SUN Anna Sergeyevna in a Black Sea resort. Their tryst is SUN short but the affair plagues Gurov on his return to the SUN capital, he can’t get the thought of Anna out of his mind. SUN In Champagne, the wayfarer (portrayed by Mackenzie Crook) SUN relates the story of his alcoholic descent into a dark SUN city alleyway via a desolate station in the Russian steppe. SUN SUN The character of Raskolnikov in Dostoyevsky’s Crime & SUN Punishment is devastatingly flawed. After committing the SUN bloody murder, he returns to his bedsit, where he promptly SUN falls asleep. Upon awakening he realises, in a moment of SUN panic, that there is still blood on his trousers. A SUN hypochondriac all his life, Scriabin’s The Poem of Fire SUN convincingly sets the mood. SUN SUN Lenin’s What is to be done? was written as a political SUN pamphlet in 1901. It calls for the formation of a SUN revolutionary party to direct the working class. SUN Underneath actor Jason Isaac’s oratorical reading, the SUN music to Shostakovich’s opera The Nose bombastically mocks SUN bourgeois self-importance. SUN SUN In Turgenev’s best known work Fathers & Sons, the SUN character Yevgeny Bazarov discards the outdated ways of SUN the old generation and embraces the future. In music, it SUN can be intriguing to juxtapose works from different SUN generations. Gabriel Prokofiev acknowledges that his SUN grandfather has hugely influenced his work and it is SUN interesting to hear their different (or perhaps, you may SUN think, similar) approaches to writing for string quartet. SUN SUN The programme ends with two of Chekhov’s most famous SUN dramatic works, The Cherry Orchard and Three Sisters. In SUN the final act of The Cherry Orchard, the cast are stunned SUN into silence when Lopakhin reveals it is he himself who SUN has purchased the orchard. The old guard have been SUN replaced by new money. Maybe there are strong role models SUN in Russian literature after all?

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b00q904m (Listen) MON Alexander Borodin (1833-1887), Episode 1 MON MON His melodies were as brilliant and beguiling as his MON scientific discoveries. Alexander Borodin (1833-1887) was MON one of history's great polymaths - who combined a career MON as one of Russia's great research chemists with an equally MON dazzling creative life as one of the 19th century's most MON enchanting composers. Happily married, loved by his MON friends and also a noted writer, philanthropist and MON linguist, Borodin's life was high on talent, short on MON crisis - and full of extraordinary, bewitching music. MON MON No-one could write a tune like Borodin - and didn't his MON peers know it. Throughout Borodin's life, Rimsky-Korsakov MON and others nagged on and on at him for his 'misplaced' MON devotion to science, criticised his running quite MON literally from piano to laboratory, urged him to write MON more than he possibly was able. Never mind that his MON scientist colleagues were advising him to do precisely the MON opposite... MON MON By the time of Borodin's early death aged 54 (he expired MON of a heart attack merrily dancing the night away at a MON ball), he'd completed a mere few dozen works - yet almost MON without exception they're some of the most charming works MON of the Romantic era - brimming with melodic genius and MON passion for his native Russia. Such was the affection in MON which Borodin was held, his friends rallied round to MON reconstruct and complete many of his unfinished MON compositions after his death, ensuring his genius would MON live on forever. MON MON This week, Donald Macleod celebrates the life and work of MON the Talented Dr Borodin, featuring all three symphonies, MON In The Steppes Of Steppes Of Central Asia and a host of MON chamber works, including his Second String Quartet MON (featuring the famous Nocturne). Tuesday's episode gives MON a rare airing to all sixteen of Borodin's solo songs - a MON revelation, in the presenter's words - whilst on Thursday MON we'll hear extended excerpts from the Second Act of MON Borodin's operatic masterpiece, Prince Igor, including the MON famous Polovtsian Dances. MON MON Donald Macleod explores the brilliant, happy life of MON Alexander Borodin - who combined equally dazzling careers MON in music and chemistry, as well as being a noted linguist, MON writer and philanthropist. In the first episode of the MON series he explores the early conflicts Borodin faced MON between his twin careers - often having to quite literally MON run from laboratory to piano - as well as the origins of MON the composer's First Symphony.

MON MON 14:00 Afternoon on 3 b00qcj5h (Listen) MON Musical Outsiders, Episode 1 MON MON 2pm: Afternoon on 3: Musical Outsiders MON MON Elgar is often seen as the embodiment of the Edwardian MON Establishment - Pomp and Circumstance, Crown of India - MON plus fours and bicycle clips - which is a mark of Elgar's MON achievement as that is what he always craved. Born the son MON of a Catholic Music Dealer, Elgar was always haunted by MON his modest social origins as he longed for a place in the MON establishment. In this week's programmes Katie Derham MON takes the Outsider theme a stage further, using MON performances of Elgar's music by non-British ensembles and MON asking the question - do you have to be British to get MON something from this music? MON MON Other outsiders over the week are Beethoven - MON increasingly isolated in his deafness; Kurt Weill - MON hounded out of Nazi Germany; Shostakovich - the focus of MON Stalinist criticism in 1930's Soviet Union, and Rued MON Langgaard, a Danish composer very much in the shadow of MON his elder contemporary Carl Nielsen, and who did not get MON the recognition he perhaps deserved at the time. MON MON In today's programme, Katie Derham introduces Elgar's MON stirring Cockaigne overture, and Walton's youthful first MON symphony conducted by Sir Roger Norrington. Beethoven's MON isolation comes across in one of his late quartets, and MON songs by Kurt Weill which were such a corrosive commentary MON on 1930's Berlin that he was hounded out of Nazi Germany.

MON MON Angela Hewitt's understanding of early dance informs her MON captivating performances of Baroque repertoire. Her MON revelatory interpretations of Couperin's solo keyboard MON pieces here provide the perfect complement to Ravel's MON spirited orchestral version of Le Tombeau de Couperin and MON his jazz-tinged Piano Concerto in G.

MON MON After Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov is the most perfomed MON playwright in the world and amongst the most revered MON writers of short stories. While the pleasure he has given MON to theatre audiences and readers is immense, these Essays MON explore his legacy in terms of the craft and technique MON that he continues to bequeath to theatre practitioners and MON writers today. In the first of five programmes celebrating MON the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Chekhov's MON birth, the hugely popular actor Simon Russell Beale MON confides how the opportunity to perform in The Seagull MON with the Royal Shakespeare Company twenty five years ago, MON transformed his entire career. MON MON I can't pretend to know precisely what my new employers MON saw in me, but I suspect that they wanted to use me, at MON least initially, as a comic actor - or as a young MON character actor, to use the old terminology. This was not MON unexpected. I could not imagine myself, even in my most MON self-deluded moments, as Lysander or Romeo or MON Sebastian.....And then Terry Hands, the Artistic Director MON at the time, cast me as Konstantin in The Seagull by Anton MON Chekhov......

TUE TUE Runnicles spent 10 years working in Germany at the start TUE of his career, immersing himself in this musical language. TUE He said: I have to breathe this air, this Wagnerian air. TUE It was life-changing and that love affair with Wagner led TUE to what was influenced by him: the Bruckner, the Mahler. TUE TUE The work of a giant is how Hugo Wolf described TUE Bruckner's Eighth Symphony, and the symphony itself is a TUE giant, with its full panoply of horns and Wagner tubas.

TUE TUE 21:15 Night Waves b00q90gy (Listen) TUE David King TUE TUE As part of the BBC Year of Science, Radio 3's Night Waves TUE is running a special series of extended interviews with TUE leading scientists from Britain and the rest of the world. TUE Each month a complete 45 minute edition will be dedicated TUE to a single scientific figure talking to him or her about TUE their research specialism, their wider scientific views, TUE their personal background and their involvement with TUE broader cultural and political questions. TUE TUE In the first interview Anne McElvoy talks to David King, TUE the UK government's chief scientific officer from 2000 to TUE 2007 - a job which put him at the heart of one of the TUE burning issues of our time: the relationship between TUE scientists, the government and the general public. On his TUE watch David King faced foot and mouth, the GM foods TUE debate, the ratification of the Kyoto protocol and the TUE Stern Report. TUE TUE South African born and a physical chemist by training, TUE David King arguably did more than any other scientist to TUE put the issue of Climate Change onto the UK's public and TUE political map. Anne gauges his opinions on the failure of TUE the Copenhagen summit and asks about the nature of TUE scientific orthodoxy after the furore over the climate TUE change emails from the University of East Anglia, where he TUE used to work. TUE TUE And what does he think about the status of scientific TUE knowledge in the political process, an issue brought TUE sharply into focus by the recent resignation of David TUE Nutt, the chairman of the government's Advisory Council on TUE the Misuse of Drugs? TUE TUE David King is a self confessed optimist, his personal TUE style is that of the quietly spoken diplomat but he is no TUE stranger to controversy. He publicly criticised the Bush TUE administration over its environmental policies and has TUE himself been declared an embarrassment by those with TUE different opinions over climate change.

THU THU 21:15 Night Waves b00q90wl (Listen) THU The Woman in White THU THU Matthew Sweet brings together a round-table of guests to THU explore one of the best-selling novels of the nineteenth THU century: The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, one hundred THU and fifty years after it was first published in 1860. The THU Woman in White is the archetypal sensation novel of the THU Victorian era - it pioneered the use of mystery, detective THU sleuthing and the multiple viewpoints that have become the THU stock-in-trade of thrillers and crime fiction ever since. THU No wonder that Prime Minister Gladstone stayed up all THU night reading the book, and even Oscar Wilde named his cat THU after its chief villain, Count Fosco. THU THU The Woman in White launched Wilkie Collins to a ten year THU period when he dominated English fiction. Matthew tries to THU get to the heart of the originality of this THU ground-breaking book .How did a figure such as Collins - a THU close friend of Charles Dickens - manage to create so many THU original devices? Did Collins' legal back-ground help him THU develop his literary techniques? THU THU And today, a century and a half later, when detective THU thrillers are one of the world's most influential genres THU of fiction, how does Collins's work stand-up? Does the THU archaeology of the Woman in White, give us some clues THU about how such gripping writing would develop over the THU subsequent century?

THU THU After Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov is the most perfomed THU playwright in the world and amongst the most revered THU writers of short stories. While the pleasure he has given THU to theatre audiences and readers is immense, these Essays THU explore his legacy in terms of the craft and technique THU that he continues to bequeath to theatre practitioners and THU writers today. In the fourth of five programmes THU celebrating the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of THU Chekhov's birth, the novelist and short story writer Ruth THU Thomas tells the true tale of how a missing cat in a misty THU cherry orchard started a life long interest in the life THU and work of Chekhov.

Then, to Schubert, and his expression of the FRI artist as outsider in his Wanderer Fantasy. Geirr Tveitt FRI started out as an outsider on the periphery of Europe, FRI born in rural Norway, in the Hardanger valley, but was FRI educated in Leipzig (just like Elgar) before continuing FRI his studies in Paris in the 1920's where he met the great FRI and the good, before returning to his home in Norway and FRI developing his individual musical voice there. FRI FRI When the Stalin-backed criticism of Shostakovich appeared FRI in the late 1930's, in response to his 4th Symphony and FRI his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk it was a bitter blow FRI to the composer. Criticism like this from the Soviet FRI establishment could have life threatening consequences, FRI and for a while Shostakovich was definitely an Outsider FRI in Soviet society. Shostakovich's return to the fold came FRI with his 5th Symphony, written in 1937. As Shostakovich FRI wrote at the time A Soviet artist's response to FRI justified criticism.

For FRI centuries, it held its place in the Requiem Mass, but with FRI the dawning of the Romantic age in the 19th Century, FRI Hector Berlioz employed the melody of the chant in his FRI Symphonie Fantastique and began a secular trend which was FRI to preoccupy and fascinate composers. So, Liszt revelled FRI in its macabre associations in his Totentanz and FRI Rachmaninov incorporated the distinctive four-note motif FRI into many of his works. When the Dies Irae became an FRI optional part of the Requiem Mass in the mid-20th Century, FRI its grim foreboding found a new home in horror film FRI scores, perhaps most famously in Wendy Carlos' electronic FRI rendition of the melody in the opening sequence to Stanley FRI Kubrick's The Shining. FRI Sara Mohr-Pietsch traces the journey of this chant with FRI the help of Jeremy Summerly, David Nice and David Huckvale FRI and discovers that the ear-worm of the Dies Irae is hard FRI to shake off.

FRI FRI The novelist, short story writer and film-maker Xiaolu Guo FRI was born in a fishing village in south China.
