SAT SAT Rolando Villazon SAT SAT On Music Matters this week Tom Service catches up with one SAT of today’s hottest opera stars, the irrepressible tenor SAT Rolando Villazón. SAT SAT Born in Mexico City, he began his musical studies at the SAT National Conservatory of Music before entering young artist SAT programmes in Pittsburgh and at San Francisco Opera. It was SAT as the winner of several prizes at Plácido Domingo’s SAT “Operalia” Competition in 1999 that he first burst onto the SAT international music scene. He made his European debut that SAT same year as Des Grieux in Massenet’s Manon in Genoa, SAT swiftly followed by further debuts at what would become two SAT of his future artistic homes: the Opéra de Paris and the SAT Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin. SAT SAT He’s made several successful appearances at Covent Garden SAT and enjoyed critical success with recordings of Verdi, SAT Puccini and Handel, but he’s also widely knows as one of the SAT judges on ITV’s recent Popstar to Operastar, and even as a SAT knitted character in Harry Hill’s TV Burp. Unafraid of SAT courting controversy in his endeavours to popularise opera SAT he’s faced something of a critical backlash in recent years SAT as he’s struggled with physical problems, undergoing an SAT operation to remove cysts from his vocal chords. SAT SAT Tom visits Rolando at home in Paris and encounters the full SAT force of his irresistible energy and multi-faceted SAT personality - trained clown, student of philosophy, SAT virtuosic cartoonist, committed father and operatic SAT superstar; He explains how he wants opera to be thought of SAT as an essential human experience rather than a closeted SAT museum of culture and how his performances try to tap the SAT deep truths of the characters he's portraying. He describes SAT how it feels when a performance lifts off in a unique wave SAT of emotion and defends his appearance on Popstar to SAT Operastar as part of his mission to commit completely to SAT whatever he's engaged in. SAT SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show b00s6rzd (Listen) SAT Andreas Scholl on Oswald von Wolkenstein SAT SAT Lucie Skeaping interviews the charismatic countertenor SAT Andreas Scholl about his successful career as a live SAT performer and as a recording artist, and chooses some SAT recordings from his impressive discography.

The production, which involved the ensemble SAT Shield of Harmony, has just finished a European tour.

SAT SAT 15:00 World Routes b00d0fm0 (Listen) SAT Music from the Festival on the Niger 2008, Episode 1 SAT SAT Ten thousand people from all parts of Mali, from SAT neighbouring West African countries, and from Europe, Asia SAT and the Americas, gathered in Segou in central Mali earlier SAT this year for the annual Festival on the Niger. Lucy Duran SAT introduces performances by Abdoullaye Diabate and Yoro SAT Diallo, who are both hugely popular in Mali but little known SAT outside, and she goes in search of the rarely-heard hunters SAT music of the region. SAT SAT The Festival is literally on the Niger, as the performers SAT play from a barge that floats on this great African river. SAT It was started three years ago to promote culture and SAT tourism in that region, to try and tempt travellers on their SAT way to Timbuktu to stop in Segou for a while. The artist SAT line-up is a mix of internationally known Malian artists SAT such as Afel Bocoum from Niafunke, and artists who are SAT popular in Mali but less well known outside. SAT SAT Abdoullaye Diabate is a singer who comes from Segou. He SAT sees himself as a modern-day griot, giving social and SAT political messages to people while entertaining them with SAT great songs for dancing. Yoro Diallo comes from Wassulu in SAT the west, and is a leading player of the hunters music of SAT that region.

This acoustic format has SAT been a central component of Lewis' sixty-year career, SAT bringing chart success in 1965 with 'The In Crowd', a track SAT recorded live at Washington D.C.'s Bohemian Caverns where SAT the audience's whoops and claps became, in Ramsey's words, SAT the 'fourth member of the band'. But, as Alyn Shipton finds SAT out in this programme, Lewis' catalogue of discs is richly SAT varied, including interpretations of Beatles ballads, forays SAT into fusion (with the help of Earth, Wind & Fire) and a SAT large-scale gospel album alongside his many trio outings. A SAT natural storyteller, Lewis remembers his father introducing SAT him to the virtuosity of Art Tatum (prompting the question: SAT 'Dad, who are they?') and, in conversation with Alyn SAT Shipton, he describes how Western Classical tradition holds SAT an important position in his musical thinking.

In front of an audience at last year's Cheltenham jazz SUN festival, Henry tells Alyn Shipton his remarkable story and SUN presents his essential recordings. SUN SUN When Henry Grimes' bass was broken in the late 1960s, he SUN gave up his career as one of New York's great players - SUN working with Gerry Mulligan, Sonny Rollins, Cecil Taylor and SUN Albert Ayler - and went into forced retirement from music, SUN working in obscurity as a building supervisor. He was SUN rediscovered in 2003 and made a remarkable return to his SUN former eminence, working with the cream of New York's avant SUN garde players including Marc Ribot, William Parker Jr. and SUN David Murray. In this edition of Jazz Library recorded at SUN the Cheltenham Town Hall during the 2009 Jazz Festival, SUN Grimes tells Alyn Shipton his extraordinary story. (R).

SUN SUN 12:00 Private Passions b00hwwrg (Listen) SUN Michael Morpurgo SUN SUN Michael Berkeley welcomes the much loved children's author SUN Michael Morpurgo, author of over 100 books of 'magical SUN storytelling'. His 1982 novel 'War Horse', the poignant SUN story of a Devon-bred colt who is shipped off to France as a SUN cavalry horse during the First World War, was turned into a SUN smash hit production at the National Theatre, and is still SUN playing to packed houses in London's West End. SUN SUN Morpurgo has never shied away from the grittier, even tragic SUN aspects of life. His most recent books are 'The Kites are SUN Flying', about a journalist who travels to the West Bank to SUN explore life on both sides of the wall that divides Jews and SUN Palestinians; and 'Running Wild', a heart-rending tale about SUN a boy caught up in an Indonesian tsunami who is saved by the SUN elephant he happens to be riding at the time. SUN SUN He sang in his school choir, and several of his Private SUN Passions choices reflect his love of vocal music, including SUN Tallis's great 40-part motet 'Spem in alium', Alfred Deller SUN singing Purcell's 'Fairest Isle', Anthony Rolfe-Johnson SUN singing Handel's 'Where'ere you Walk', the opening chorus of SUN Bach's 'Christmas Oratorio', which for him represents the SUN spirit of Christmas, and Kathleen Ferrier singing 'Sound the SUN Trumpet', from Purcell's 'Come ye sons of art away'. He SUN visits Venice often, and his love of the city is reflected SUN in his choices of Vivaldi's Concerto in D for lute and SUN strings, while his passionate love of the English SUN countryside finds an echo in the third movement of SUN Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony, and in 'Nimrod' from SUN Elgar's 'Enigma' Variations.

SUN SUN DIY and politics. A new comedy about the complexity and SUN absurdity of modern life, from three award winning writers. SUN A couple start dismantling their house; next door a pregnant SUN woman refuses to give birth. Around them, the political SUN process grinds to a halt on polling day when no-one votes. SUN Fran and Eddy decide they need a change, so they rip out SUN their kitchen, then start taking their house apart. Next SUN door, Neil and Clare are waiting for the arrival of their SUN first baby. And waiting. Then Clare reveals that she isn't SUN ready to give birth yet. Fran wants the walls taken down. As SUN these small domestic worlds shift, the bigger picture is SUN changing too. On polling day, nobody turns up to vote. In a SUN record breaking election, the government is left in power by SUN default and the political process in disarray. What happens SUN when Fran and Eddy take the windows and doors out? Does SUN Clare ever have her baby? And who will stand as Prime SUN Minister for the newly formed cross-party Unity Party? A SUN fierce, funny play about making up your mind. SUN SUN Dan Rebellato is a Sony nominated radio drama writer. Linda SUN McLean is a leading Scottish theatre writer and Duncan SUN Macmillan is an up and coming talent (Royal Exchange Theatre SUN Bruntwood winner). This is the first time these three SUN writers have worked together. The cast features Tom SUN Goodman-Hill, (currently appearing in Enron), Amelia SUN Bullmore (now in Really Old Like Forty Five at the National) SUN and David Annen (Measure for Measure at the Almeida). The SUN play was recorded on location with original music by award SUN winning composer Alice Trueman and sound design by Eloise SUN Whitmore. SUN SUN Fran ..... Louisa Lytton SUN Eddy .....

SUN SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature b00s6sdd (Listen) SUN Theatre at the Front Line SUN SUN In many places where there has been conflict in the world, SUN such as the destructive violence of civil war, theatre SUN workers - writers, directors, and actors - are using the SUN potential of theatre to help people work through their SUN grief, anger, and suffering. With the release offered by the SUN theatrical experience, damaged communities are encouraged to SUN regenerate. By exploring and reviving cultural roots - SUN stories, songs and music - they re-establish connections SUN with a traditional way of life. SUN SUN The BBC World reporter Zeinab Badawi visits Khartoum for SUN this Sunday Feature to meet some of those dedicated to this SUN task. People like Ali Mahdi, director of the National SUN Theatre in Khartoum and an active member of the SUN International Theatre Institute, who has established a SUN Centre for Theatre in Conflict Zones. Each year he runs a SUN festival which brings together some of those groups working SUN in distant parts of Sudan, and Zeinab Badawi meets these SUN groups at the Festival and hears their stories about how SUN they attempt to help those communities in which they work. SUN SUN Many of the groups have been influenced by the theories of SUN Augusto Boal, who pioneered theatre which works within SUN victimised communities. The people, or the audience, become SUN a part of the action and play out their experiences, SUN reaching a kind of resolution from which they can rebuild. SUN Zeinab Badawi talks to Thomas Engel and Alexander Stilmark, SUN who have brought Boal's theories to the people of the Sudan, SUN as well as to other Sudanese and international figures. SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00s6sdg (Listen) SUN May Day is often associated with English pastoral images: SUN Maypoles, morris dancing and the gathering of greenery. But SUN there's a darker side too, as May Day has throughout history SUN had an undercurrent of misrule, evil practices and sexual SUN liberty. The programme begins in a pastoral vein with poetry SUN and prose about May Day celebrations through the ages, SUN including tudor May Games, and traditional music such as the SUN Padstow May Song. Then comes the sexual liberty associated SUN with the celebrations; Philip Stubbes complains about sexual SUN practices in his Anatomie of Abuses, written in the 16th SUN century, and Britten takes a comic view of the subsequent SUN difficulties in finding a suitable May Queen in his opera SUN Albert Herring. Meanwhile, there’s more disruption as SUN Richmal Crompton’s William ruins the May Day celebrations in SUN his inimitable way by declaring himself May King, and SUN appointing his own Queen. The latter half of the programme SUN depicts the violent riots that have traditionally occurred SUN on May Day, from 'Evil May Day' in 1517, to the Haymarket SUN Riots in Chicago in 1886, right up to the present day SUN socialist riots. And the programme ends with a famous SUN depiction of a May Day sacrifice, from the film The Wicker Man.

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b00s7c2m (Listen) MON Pasta, pizza and opera - just three of Italy's gifts to the MON world. But while pasta may have originated in China and the MON Ancient Greeks appear to have had a form of pizza, there's MON no doubt that the origins of opera are thoroughly Italian. MON So as part of the BBC's focus on opera in 2010, Donald MON Macleod conducts a whistlestop tour through two centuries MON and more of Italian opera, from Monteverdi to Rossini. MON MON Monday's programme starts with opera in its infancy, as MON Donald explores the origins of the form in the courtly MON entertainments of late-16th-century Florence, and we hear MON from the earliest true opera to have survived intact. Then MON Monteverdi comes on the scene and the infant's growth MON accelerates rapidly - we hear from the first operatic MON masterpiece, then from one of the first operas to offer a MON realistic portrayal of human relations and motivations. It's MON about Poppea, a courtesan who sleeps her way to the very MON top. Finally, a look at the two composers who more than any MON others dominated the genre in the immediate aftermath of MON Monteverdi - Francesco Cavalli and Antonio Cesti. They're MON hardly famous names today, but between them they produced MON the most popular operas of the entire 17th century.

By examining the fates of these MON incredible classical riches, Mary Beard explores the rich MON cultural heritage, and many faces, of this unique city. MON MON Istanbul, historically also known as Byzantium and MON Constantinople, is the largest city in Turkey, and uniquely MON straddles both the continents of Europe and Asia.

MON MON Umlaut brings together French-Swedish trio Peeping Tom with MON veteran British saxophonist Evan Parker. Taking phrases and MON fragments from bebop melodies by the likes of Charlie Parker MON and Thelonious Monk as a nominal starting point, their fiery MON improvisations could go in any direction. In their own words MON they "tear jazz down to its bare bones and re-furnish it MON with the new blossom of freebop". MON MON Gemini is led by vibraphonist Jim Hart, and features three MON other core members of the Loop Collective: saxophonist Ivo MON Neame, drummer Dave Smith and bassist Jasper Hoiby. Strong MON melodies are a hallmark of Hart's compositions, but the MON group are equally happy pursuing more abstract improvisations. MON MON These performances were recording during the Loop Collective MON festival at London's Vortex in February. The collective, MON which celebrates its fifth birthday this year, has a D.I.Y.

TUE TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week b00s7d2p (Listen) TUE Continuing Donald Macleod's exploration of two centuries of TUE Italian opera from Monteverdi to Rossini. The second TUE programme focuses on a single decade, the 1720s, and the TUE work of three giants of their day, whom history has treated TUE rather differently: Alessandro Scarlatti; Antonio Vivaldi; TUE and George Frideric Handel. Today Alessandro Scarlatti's TUE reputation is outshone by that of his son Domenico, but he TUE was one of the major musical figures of his time, with over TUE 100 operas to his credit - of which very few are ever TUE performed today. TUE TUE Unlike Scarlatti, Vivaldi's operatic 'rehabilitation' is TUE well under way, but despite his considerable output - he's TUE known to have composed at least 50 operas, 16 of which have TUE survived - he's still far better known for his instrumental TUE music. Time has been kinder to Handel's operas, many of TUE which are regularly staged today.

TUE TUE "Istanbul is like a huge, colourful Matrushka - you open it TUE and find another doll inside. You open that, only to see a TUE new doll nesting. It is a hall of mirrors where nothing is TUE quite what it seems. One should be cautious when using TUE categories to talk about Istanbul. If there is one thing the TUE city doesn't like, it is clichés." TUE TUE Carefully avoiding all cliches concerning the city that she TUE still calls home, Elif Shafak looks at Istanbul's many TUE identities, and its many inhabitants, from the ghosts of the TUE past, to the real Istanbulites, the recent arrivals, to the TUE visitors. Along the way she explains why Istanbul, to her, TUE is a 'She City', a city of women, of widows, mothers and TUE young girls, whose beat is decidedly feminine. TUE TUE Istanbul, historically also known as Byzantium and TUE Constantinople, is the largest city in Turkey, and uniquely TUE straddles both the continents of Europe and Asia. It was TUE chosen this year as the join European Capital of Culture. TUE These essays paint five very different and very personal TUE views of this extraordinary city. TUE TUE Elif Shafak is the best-selling female author in Turkey. Her TUE controversial novel 'The Bastard of Istanbul' was nominated TUE for the Orange Prize for fiction.

WED WED 12:00 Composer of the Week b00s7dbs (Listen) WED Continuing Donald Macleod's exploration of two centuries of WED Italian opera from Monteverdi to Rossini. Wednesday's WED programme picks up where Tuesday's left off, to chart a WED course through the 18th-century tradition of opera seria - WED serious opera - with music by some very familiar names and WED some relatively obscure ones. Giovanni Battista Pergolesi is WED probably best known today for his comic intermezzo Il serva WED padrona, and for providing some of the source material for WED Stravinsky's ballet Pulcinella. WED WED We hear from him here in his serious mode, in an opera WED written three years before his untimely death at the age of WED 26. Baldassare Galuppi and Niccolò Jommelli were two of the WED foremost operatic composers of the mid-18th century, now WED almost entirely overlooked; Jommelli in particular is a WED master of thrillingly expressive music, and well overdue for WED a revival. Christoph Willibald Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice was WED one of the most influential operas of its time, still widely WED performed today. Finally, extracts from an early opera by WED Mozart and a late one by Haydn. Mozart's, the work of a WED dazzlingly precocious 14-year-old, was shelved for two WED centuries despite the great success of its opening run. WED Haydn's never even got the opening run, planned for London WED in 1791 - it fell foul of local political rivalries and had WED to wait nearly 160 years for its first performance.

Nikolai Myaskovsky began his music studies at WED the St Petersburg Conservatory at the mature age of 25, WED where he met the brash, 15 year old Prokofiev, and their WED friendship blossomed. WED WED As Russia lurched into turbulence in the early 1900s, WED Myaskovsky had a ringside seat as a serving officer, trying WED to fulfill his duty as a military engineer followng in his WED father's footsteps, whilst also pursuing his passion for WED music. He witnessed first-hand the events which culminated WED in the First World War and the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution. WED His Sixth symphony is influenced by these events, and it WED became a monumental choral symphony of heroism and WED revolution, including themes from French revolutionary songs WED and a Russian sacred text. But for all its large scale, it WED is also a deeply personal testament. WED WED Prokofiev left Russia after the revolution but returned in WED the 1930s. His Sinfonia concertante for cello and orchestra, WED written near the end of his life, was prompted by Mstislav WED Rostropovich, whose playing had reawakened Prokofiev's WED interest in the cello, inspiring him to re-work an earlier WED concerto into this new piece. WED WED Prokofiev: Sinfonia concertante WED Myaskovsky: Symphony no.6 WED WED Danjulo Ishizaka (cello) WED London Philharmonic Orchestra WED London Philharmonic Choir WED conductor Vladimir Jurowski WED WED Followed by performances by nominees for the 2010 Royal WED Philharmonic Society Awards, ahead of the awards ceremony WED which takes place on 11th May.

WED WED Focusing on the city's imperial instinct for order, WED expressed over the centuries in the functioning of its WED palace kitchens, architecture and great mosques, and the WED zoning of different faiths in the Ottoman tradition, Jason WED Goodwin reflects on how Istanbul survived huge upheaval and WED change to become a stronger, more distinct city. He compares WED the city then, with the one he knows today, a city that is WED again quietly reassuming its identity. WED WED Istanbul, historically also known as Byzantium and WED Constantinople, is the largest city in Turkey, and uniquely WED straddles both the continents of Europe and Asia. It was WED chosen this year as the joint European Capital of Culture. WED These essays paint five very different and very personal WED views of this extraordinary city. WED WED Jason Goodwin fell under the spell of Istanbul while WED studying Byzantine history at Cambridge University. Fifteen WED years ago, he made a six-month pilgrimage across eastern WED Europe to reach the city for the first time, a journey WED recounted in On Foot to the Golden Horn, which won the John WED Llewellyn Rhys/Mail on Sunday Prize 1993. WED He has become best known as author of the mysteries The WED Janissary Tree and The Snake Stone, two novels which feature WED Turkish eunuch detective, Yashim, who lives and works in WED 19th century Istanbul.

THU THU 12:00 Composer of the Week b00s7dk7 (Listen) THU Continuing Donald Macleod's exploration of two centuries of THU Italian opera from Monteverdi to Rossini. This fourth THU programme delves into the batty world of opera buffa, with THU lecherous masters and saucy maids gamboling about THU suggestively in ludicrous plots. First up is Pergolesi's Il THU serva padrona - 'The Maid as Mistress' - originally designed THU as light relief between the acts of a 'serious' opera. In THU the event, it achieved such popularity in its own right that THU it came to be widely performed as a standalone work, and its THU serious counterpart was forgotten. THU THU Very few people today have heard of Gaetano Latilla, but in THU his own time he was considered one of the most important THU composers of Italian opera. His La finta cameriera - 'The THU Fake Maid' - was one of the few full-length comic operas THU successfully exported from Naples in the 1730s. Baldassare THU Galuppi cropped up in Wednesday's programme as a composer of THU serious opera. Like many composers of the period, he also THU did comedy; his La diavolessa - 'The She-Devil' - is a THU delightful work with a completely implausible plot. THU THU The curtain comes down with Mozart, who brought the buffa THU line to an unsurpassable peak of perfection with his three THU comic operas to librettos by Lorenzo da Ponte.

FRI FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week b00s7dms (Listen) FRI Continuing Donald Macleod's exploration of two centuries of FRI Italian opera from Monteverdi to Rossini. In the final FRI course of this week-long operatic banquet we reach Signor FRI Crescendo himself, Gioacchino Rossini. Rossini is known FRI above all for his dazzling comic masterpiece The Barber of FRI Seville, but like many of his musical forbears he also FRI cultivated his 'serious' side. It's a side that many FRI listeners may be only dimly aware of, and it's never been FRI particularly good box office. FRI FRI After a shaky start, The Barber became a perennial favourite FRI with audiences. By contrast, the searing tragedy of Ermione FRI just didn't catch on; the opera ran for a handful of nights FRI before the composer withdrew it, after which it went into FRI suspended animation until it was finally revived over a FRI century and a half later. When they met in 1822, Beethoven FRI advised Rossini to stick to comic opera. Ermione proves how FRI wrong he was. We also hear from the two leading composers of FRI Italian opera in the generation before Rossini, Ferdinando FRI Paër and Simon Mayr - as with several of this week's FRI composers, little-known now but major players in their own day.

FRI They were diving down under the steep bank and resurfacing, FRI snorting out the water from their nostrils. They swam to the FRI side of the jetty and, with triumphant cries, chucked their FRI booty into a pail. FRI FRI Ryabov waited until one of them, feeling the cold, climbed FRI out of the lake. Hopping about on one foot, his head tilted FRI to one side, he was getting the water out of his ear. Only FRI then did the young boy notice Ryabov. FRI FRI "Is it Grandfather you want?" he asked. FRI FRI In Izrael Metter's short story, the young man with the FRI briefcase has come to a rural spot outside Moscow, in order FRI to confront the older Kozhin, who was a 'high-up' in the FRI police force many years back. Ryabov has come to confront FRI him about the fate of his own father - Kozhin was FRI responsible. But, strangely, Ryabov is unsure how to handle FRI the situation, despite having the advantage of surprise. So FRI what will happen?

FRI FRI Famously described by Orhan Pamuk, whose work Freely FRI translates, 'hüzün' is the feeling of decay, sadness and FRI nostalgia that seemed to envelop the Istanbul of the sixties FRI and seventies, a time when things were changing fast, but FRI when 'Old Istanbul' was still visible in the boats, FRI buildings and even the people of the city.
