SAT SAT 15:00 World Routes b00rwq9r (Listen) SAT Timitar Festival 2009 SAT SAT Carlinhos Brown in concert: the iconic Brazilian singer SAT recorded live in the Moroccan city of Agadir also a set from SAT veteran Jamaican reggae singer Max Romeo - both artists were SAT making their debut appearance in Africa.

SAT Carlinhos Brown's music has its roots in religious music of SAT the African Yoruba deities but his style ranges far and SAT wide.

SAT SAT 21:30 Between the Ears b00rwty8 (Listen) SAT The Mosque at the End of the World SAT SAT Djemaa el Fna may be a common tourist destination for the SAT international hordes who descend on Marrakech but it remains SAT a very sacred and special place for Moroccans.

SAT In this "Between the Ears" on Radio 3 the critically SAT acclaimed writer Tahir Shah who has made Morocco his home SAT for the past six years explores the square from the inside SAT out in search of its centuries old primal energy. In a SAT meditation drawing together the storytellers transvestite SAT players boxers master musicians cigarette sellers snake SAT charmers medicine men and many more Shah explores the halkas SAT or circles where they gather their crowds to enchant and SAT engage. The sounds of the square tell their own story and as SAT he moves between night and day and circle to circle he looks SAT for order beneath the apparent chaos; within it he finds an SAT oral tradition and an ancient life force defying the SAT onslaught of mass tourism and globalization.

"The Carhullan Army" SUN her third novel was published in 2007 to acclaim and won the SUN John Llewellyn Rhys Prize. A serious political novel that SUN convincingly explores the mindset of fascism and a haunting SUN story of how far we will go to be free it's also a kind of SUN Cumbrian western peopled with heroic personalities out of an SUN all-female version of "The Iliad". It's a blistering SUN achievement: darkly violent funny tender and gripping "The SUN Carhullan Army" is like nothing else. SUN SUN In an unspecified near-future life in Britain has become SUN unrecognisable: the floodwaters have risen food and fuel are SUN scarce and the country is run by the sinister Authority. All SUN women are forced to wear contraceptive devices. Sister as SUN the book's narrator calls herself escapes this repressive SUN world and heads for a mysterious quasi-mythical commune of SUN women high in the Cumbrian fells led by the legendary Jackie SUN Nixon. The journey is a challenge but arrival is only the SUN beginning of Sister's struggle. SUN SUN Anne-Marie Duff ("Nowhere Boy" "Margot" "Shameless") heads SUN the cast as Sister while Geraldine James takes the role of SUN guerrilla messiah Jackie Nixon. Sorcha Cusack plays the SUN sympathetic Lorrie and "the Army" is made up of newer SUN talents Zawe Ashton Sally Bretton and Jo Hartley. SUN SUN Novelist Sarah Hall teams up with radio dramatist Dominic SUN Power ("Riddley Walker" "Northanger Abbey" "Joseph Andrews") SUN to create the mayhem of a future Britain where society is SUN poised on the edge where - for a time at least - the only SUN civilised solution appears to be to run to the hills.

He also considers the SUN sometimes difficult working relationships with some of his SUN colleagues and how nervousness stress and anxiety have had a SUN detrimental affect on his health. SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00rwvk5 (Listen) SUN The great American essayist Susan Sontag once said that we SUN all carry two passports - one that allows us into the SUN kingdom of the well and another less seldom used which SUN ushers us into the realm of the sick. This week's edition of SUN Words and Music is all about that kingdom of malady - from SUN the famous musical sneeze in Kodaly's Hary Janos suite to SUN the balm of Bach's cantata - Ich habe genug.; from Pinter's SUN description of electroconvulsive therapy to John Evelyn's SUN eye- witness account of the removal of a bladder stone.

For Gardiner Berlioz is perhaps the greatest of MON French composers and he speaks with a lifetime's experience MON of studying and performing this remarkable music. MON Today's programme focuses on a single work the Messe MON solennelle which Berlioz composed at the tender age of 21. MON Long thought lost - the composer incinerated the parts after MON only two performances - the score turned up in 1992 in an MON oak chest in an Antwerp organ loft where it had lain MON unnoticed for over a century the accidental discovery of a MON retired music teacher called Frans Moors who had been MON hunting for a copy of Mozart's Coronation Mass. MON Despite Berlioz's evidently low opinion of it the Messe MON solennelle is a remarkable and still relatively little-known MON work that bears many hallmarks of the composer's mature MON style. Indeed listeners familiar with the rest of his oeuvre MON will recognise plenty of passages that Berlioz salvaged from MON this early work and transplanted into later ones.

Mahler wanted his symphonies to convey all the MON highs and lows of life and he put everything of himself into MON each one. They are still considered a challenge for even the MON greatest of orchestras today. Starting with a funeral march MON and exploring the idea of life after death the Symphony no.2 MON sweeps through the gamut of emotions to a visionary choral MON finale in which the heavens seem to open. MON MON A new commission precedes each Mahler symphony in this MON series and tonight's piece is by Colin Matthews someone very MON familiar with Mahler's music as he worked alongside Deryck MON Cooke on his completion of Mahler's 10th symphony.

Yet 'the art of MON dying' has been a defining notion throughout history. Mary MON Beard Professor of Classics at Cambridge explains how the MON Romans and Greeks approached death and asks whether scenes MON of showmanship famous last words and stoical endings really MON can help us when we come to face our own inevitable demise. MON MON In these five frank and powerful essays writers and thinkers MON ponder the art of dying and confront taboos around death. MON They will look at what makes a 'good death' today - is it MON merely having lived a good life or is there something MON intrinsically important in dying well? And now that our MON deaths tend to occur in the sterile surroundings of a MON hospital ward rather than at home surrounded by those we MON love will reflect on how this distancing from death and loss MON of control over our demise has changed our relationship with MON dying. With references to the portrayal of death in MON literature history and religion as well as personal MON reflections on hopes and expectations of death these essays MON will give five very different perspectives on the art of MON dying.

Mid-West youngsters MON pianist Ethan Iverson and drummer Dave King who are best MON known as two thirds of The Bad Plus join forces with two of MON their heroes from the New York downtown scene: saxophonist MON Tim Berne and cellist Hank Roberts. MON MON The quartet's music is entirely improvised with no MON pre-meditation or planning and it really can go anywhere; MON from thrashing post-rock to slow blues to bebop melodies. MON Reveling in a teasing playfulness the band circle around MON what seem to be well known tunes never quite stating them to MON the point of recognition. MON MON This particular set recorded at The Vortex in Dalston during MON a recent European tour generated excitement from both the MON audience and the musicians who acknowledged it as one of MON their best performances to date. MON MON Iverson and King met as teenagers in Minneapolis. In 2001 MON they formed power piano trio The Bad Plus whose head turning MON renditions of contemporary songs from Blondie to Nirvana MON alongside an impressive catalogue of highly distinctive MON originals lifted them onto the international stage.

TUE TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week b00g3y0m (Listen) TUE Hector Berlioz (1803-1869), Episode 2 TUE TUE Donald Macleod explores the music of Hector Berlioz in TUE conversation with Sir John Eliot Gardiner in this Composer TUE of the Week 'special' recorded at the celebrated conductor's TUE Dorset farm. For Gardiner Berlioz is perhaps the greatest of TUE French composers and he speaks with a lifetime's experience TUE of studying and performing this remarkable music. TUE Today's programme explores two of Berlioz's symphonies - TUE Harold in Italy and Romeo and Juliet. But are they really TUE symphonies? TUE Harold includes a part for solo viola which suggests a TUE concerto; but it's more like a 'song without words' evoking TUE the spirit of Byron's Childe Harold than a true concerto TUE role. That's certainly what Paganini thought - he TUE commissioned Berlioz to write it in the first place then TUE lost interest when he realised that it wasn't going to allow TUE him sufficient scope to show off. And Romeo with its voices TUE its chorus and its plot is as much a concert opera as it is TUE a symphony closely following the action of the Shakespeare TUE play that had knocked the composer's socks off when he saw TUE it in September 1827. TUE Like a pioneering horticulturalist Berlioz created new TUE musical hybrids to suit his present purpose; no wonder that TUE some of his contemporaries were confused. But in the process TUE he created some of the most thrilling dramatic and beautiful TUE music of the 19th century.

For Gardiner Berlioz is perhaps the greatest of WED French composers and he speaks with a lifetime's experience WED of studying and performing this remarkable music. WED Today's programme explores Berlioz the song writer - and WED discovers that Berlioz the song writer is really just WED another aspect of Berlioz the dramatist. All of Berlioz's WED music is essentially dramatic. Often incidents in his own WED life are seen through the filter of literature - Shakespeare WED Goethe Virgil - then converted into music whether symphonic WED vocal or operatic. WED Irlande a collection of nine songs to poems by the Irish WED writer Thomas Moore is a case in point. At the time he was WED still reeling from the double impact of Shakespeare and WED Harriet Smithson - the Shakespearean heroine and future Mrs WED Berlioz. He happened to pick up a copy of Moore's poems with WED their atmosphere of heroism and patriotism all steeped in WED the soft glow of Celtic romance and it proved to be perfect WED material for him besotted with his passion for the beautiful WED Irish actress. WED Les Nuits d'été 'Summer Nights' sets poems from the WED collection The Comedy of Death by Berlioz's friend Théophile WED Gautier and again they seem to reflect the emotional turmoil WED he was going through when he wrote them - the period when WED his flesh-and-blood relationship with the idealised Harriet WED was irretrievably breaking down. They're best known as an WED orchestral song-cycle - in fact as the first ever orchestral WED song-cycle; another Berlioz 'first' - but they're presented WED here in the rarely played but magnificent version for voice WED and piano.

For Gardiner Berlioz is perhaps the greatest of THU French composers and he speaks with a lifetime's experience THU of studying and performing this remarkable music. THU Today's programme explores the poetic vein of death and THU melancholy running through Berlioz's output - on the face of THU it a somewhat gloomy line of enquiry but in fact one that THU brings together an astonishing variety of reflections on THU mortality. THU On Berlioz's third attempt to win the coveted Prix de Rome THU in 1829 he was thought to be a shoo-in. In fact he blew it. THU Rather than submitting a 'safe' conventional piece designed THU to impress the academic judges he produced a highly original THU work that was held by the judiciary to 'betray dangerous THU tendencies'. That work was The Death of Cleopatra and the THU prize was not awarded. THU Barely a decade later Berlioz was considered sufficiently THU part of the French musical establishment to be commissioned THU to write music for a grand ceremony to mark the 10th THU anniversary of the July Revolution. In response he composed THU what he called his Grande Symphonie Funèbre et Triomphale THU scored for a huge military band of 200 players. In the event THU despite careful rehearsal the day before and the huge sound THU made by so many musicians the noise of the crowds was such THU that hardly a note of the music was heard. THU The programme ends with Tristia - 'Sad Things' a title THU borrowed from Ovid. It's a triptych of reflective pieces THU including the well-known Death of Ophelia and the less THU well-known Funeral March for the Final Scene of Hamlet. THU Listeners of a nervous disposition should be alerted to the THU volley of musket fire at the climax of the piece - a musical THU counterpart to Fortinbras's speech: 'Go bid the soldiers' THU shoot!'.

THU THU Born in Hungary Miklós Rózsa wrote many classical works but THU went to Hollywood in 1939 to work on film scores and is THU probably best known for his blockbusters like Ben-Hur and El THU Cid. His Viola concerto is one of his final works written in THU 1979 for the young Pinchas Zukerman. The concert opens with THU an introduction and interlude from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera THU which combines the real and the supernatural history and myth.

Members of an elite THU student dining society the boys are bunkering down for a THU wild night of debauchery decadence and bloody good wine. But THU this isn't the last huzzah: they're planning a takeover. So THU begins Posh a fictional portrayal and political attack on an THU elite dining society with uncanny similarities to Oxford THU University's Bullingdon Club. Identified in Night Waves' New THU Voices series earlier this year Laura Wade's play is being THU put on at the Royal Court of whose young writers programme THU the playwright is a graduate.

FRI Today's programme the last of the week is devoted to what FRI many consider to be the summit of Berlioz's achievement - FRI his gargantuan opera Les Troyens. And here we must be FRI thankful for the influence of Dr Berlioz who infected his FRI son as a young boy with a love for the tales of towering FRI passion of gods and goddesses of heroes and villains of FRI Virgil's Aeneid - he even named him Hector. FRI The programme features three extracts from this four-hour FRI epic. Two of them focus on the opera's key couples Cassandra FRI and Chorebus and Dido and Aeneas - all of them ultimately FRI doomed except for Aeneas who eventually sails off into the FRI sunset for his date with destiny - the founding of Rome. FRI The third extract is the famous 'Trojan March' from the end FRI of Act I. John Eliot Gardiner's recording is the only one to FRI feature the original saxhorns demanded by the score and he FRI relates how he tracked down a complete set in the private FRI collection of a retired Parisian railway worker whose FRI apartment near the Gare du Nord was hung from floor to FRI ceiling with historic brass instruments.
