SAT SAT 12:15 Music Feature b00mly72 (Listen) SAT Purcell and Dryden - A Professional Friendship SAT SAT Alyn Shipton explores Dryden and Purcell's collaboration on SAT the semi-opera King Arthur, a work which is often regarded SAT as the first professional collaboration between librettist SAT and composer. He is joined by Purcell biographer Jonathan SAT Keates, who describes some of the sights, sounds and smell SAT of the world of Restoration theatre. It was a period in SAT which people would come in and out for single acts of an SAT opera, jostle in the stalls and swap seats in boxes, while SAT the privileged would claim seats on the stage. SAT SAT There is a look at the latest scholarship on the genesis of SAT the opera, with Dryden's biographer, James Wynn, who traces SAT the origins of the collaboration between the two men in the SAT preface to Dioclesian, which was signed by Purcell but SAT written by Dryden. He explains that 17th-century authorship SAT was a bit like the teams of writers on a present-day sitcom. SAT SAT Alyn also considers the origin of the Knights of the Garter, SAT the redecoration of Windsor Castle and the messy politics of SAT Jacobites supporting the ousted James II versus William SAT III's Orange and Protestant sympathies. This provides the SAT background to such remarkable musical treats as Purcell and SAT Dryden's Chorus of Cold People, the paeon of praise to St SAT George, and the best-known setting in the opera Fairest SAT Isle. With naked sylphs, ancient British battles and a SAT drinking song worthy of the terraces at an England game, SAT Alyn sheds new light on this most fascinating of operas. SAT SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show b00ktrk0 (Listen) SAT Le Balet Comique de la Royne SAT SAT Lucie Skeaping explores the origins of classical ballet, SAT which can be found in the lavish 'balet comique de la SAT royne', an ambitious and influential stage entertainment SAT that was given in Paris, on 15 October 1581 in the court of SAT Catherine de Medici, to celebrate the marriage of the Duc de SAT Joyeuse and Mlle de Vaudemont. SAT SAT It was conceived and directed by Catherine's director of SAT court festivals, Balthasar de Beaujoyeux, who sought to SAT bring together all the art forms - including for the first SAT time, dramatic dance - for a huge allegorical spectacle in SAT the spirit of the ancient Greeks. The verse was by the Sieur SAT de la Chesnaye, the scenery by Patin, and the music by the SAT bass singer Lambert de Beaulieu, Jacques Salmon, and others. SAT Catherine was so pleased with the event that she had all its SAT details meticulously recorded, published and circulated, SAT which is how we have come to know so much about it. SAT SAT In recent years the Swiss-based group Ensemble Elyma and SAT their director Gabriel Garrido have researched and recorded SAT the music of the entertainment, and it is this recording SAT that is featured in the programme. Lucie looks back on the SAT history of the piece, how it was performed, what it looked SAT like and what it meant.

SUN SUN In trying to find the genesis of his pluviophilia, he SUN concludes that it wasn't nostalgia for rain sheeted caravan SUN holidays with John Buchan and Fred Astaire for company that SUN sparked his passion. SUN SUN It's no coincidence that his love of rain blossomed at the SUN same time as his love of poetry. "As it has a habit of SUN doing, poetry drew out of me much that was latently there, SUN helped to elucidate my loves. Arnold and Hopkins, in SUN particular, released me into fertile relationships with SUN landscape and weather which have so far proved inexhaustible." SUN SUN His pluviophile's bible includes Hopkins, Pepys and Edith SUN Sitwell, and a line from a love poem by ee cummings SUN addressing a mistress's effortless yet powerful fragility : SUN "nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands." SUN SUN He is fascinated by the idioms and dialectic variations of SUN language used to talk about rain. Not only does it rain cats SUN and dogs, but also stair-rods, cobblers' knives, tractors SUN and wheelbarrows, depending on where you are in the world. SUN In parts of Northern England it can still be 'siling down'. SUN Peter also pays homage to the creators of another favourite SUN word from his lexicon of rain - petrichor: the distinctive SUN scent released when rain falls upon dry ground.

SUN SUN 21:45 Music Feature b00m8pdk (Listen) SUN The Art of Noises SUN SUN One hundred years after the founding manifesto of Futurism, SUN Robert Worby examine the least-documented aspect of Italy's SUN most audacious art movement: the Art of Noises. SUN SUN The most influential futurist musician was Luigi Russolo who SUN argued for a complete reappraisal of classical orchestras to SUN include sounds of the modern world. He designed and built SUN early mechanical synthesisers, or intonarumori, to recreate SUN the sounds of factories, cars and whistles. SUN SUN Robert travels to Milan, the birthplace of Futurism, to SUN visit reconstructions of the intonarumori - a collection of SUN instruments invented by Russolo - and re-imagine the sounds SUN of the trams and the mighty railway station which inspired SUN them. With all but a few shards of Russolo's music lost or SUN destroyed, why do the Art of Noises continue to resonate for SUN many musicians and artists today? SUN SUN 22:30 Words and Music b00tkmdf (Listen) SUN The Afterlife SUN SUN The ideology of an afterlife – that our consciousness exists SUN in a spiritual realm beyond the disintegration of our SUN physical beings – is at the heart of many religious faiths SUN and is also widely considered in literature and popular SUN culture. Ultimately the question of what lies beyond the SUN grave impacts us all…shall we be reunited with lost loved SUN ones or be able to return to those we’ve left behind in some SUN ghostly form? Shall we find peace at last, eternal SUN damnation, or worse, oblivion? The texts included here are SUN primarily narratives set in Heaven or Hell, ghostly SUN encounters, and reflections in the face of death. SUN SUN We open with the ghost of Hamlet’s father appearing before SUN the troubled young prince to seek vengeance for his murder. SUN His description of the chilling conditions of his eternal SUN fate is matched by John McCabe’s score for the 1972 horror SUN film Fear in the Night. SUN SUN Emily Dickinson’s poems dealt often with the themes of death SUN and immortality – introverted and reclusive towards the end SUN of her life she had been troubled from a young age by the SUN ‘deepening menace’ of death, but in the fragile and SUN dream-like poem here her wistful vision of Heaven is calm SUN and serene. So too is her fellow New Englander Charles Ives SUN philosophical work, TheUnanswered Question – described by SUN the composer as a ‘cosmic landscape’. SUN SUN Its solo trumpet asks the ‘perennial question of existence’ SUN and leads poignantly into Wilfred Owen’s Strange Meeting – SUN described by Siegfried Sassoon as Owen’s passport to SUN immortality. The poem recounts a dramatic meeting between SUN two dead soldiers who had fought on opposing sides in SUN battle. Killed in the closing weeks of World War I, aged 25, SUN the quotation ‘I am the enemy you killed’ is engraved on the SUN poet’s memorial in the grounds of Shrewesbury Abbey. SUN Benjamin Britten’s setting of the soldiers conclusion ‘let SUN us sleep now’ is the final section of his War Requiem. SUN SUN Louise Chandler Moulton – a contemporary of Emily Dickinson SUN – had a prominent role in late 19th century American SUN literary circles as a critic for the New York Tribune and SUN Boston Herald. In her poem ‘After Death’ the narrator SUN doesn’t want her lover to continue on earth without her – SUN and hopes instead that they will share a sweet fellowship in SUN their earthy underground afterlife… SUN SUN In this extract from Milton’s epic Paradise Lost, Satan and SUN his Angels have fallen from Heaven and are in ‘a place of SUN utter darkness, fitliest called Chaos’ Lying thunderstruck SUN and astonished on a burning lake Satan addresses his legions SUN and considers the plus points of ruling in Hell as opposed SUN to having to serve in Heaven. More demonic activity is SUN featured in Liszt’s Faust symphony – this movement is named SUN Mephistopheles after a demon in the legend of Faust who SUN sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for unlimited SUN knowledge and worldly pleasures but is ultimately carried SUN off to Hell. SUN SUN From demonic to peaceful and pastoral with George SUN Butterworth’s The banks of Green Willow and Thomas Hardy’s SUN Transformations, where he considers the existence of those SUN from time gone by existing still in the nature around us. SUN SUN Schumann’s Child Falling Asleep leads into an extract from SUN Alice Seebold’s recent bestseller The Lovely Bones, where SUN the fourteen year old narrator reflects on her own murder SUN and looks down from Heaven on her friends and family SUN carrying on with their lives. The music here is from the SUN first movement (Ascending Heavens Ladder) of Terry Riley’s SUN Requiem for Adam – written in memory of sixteen year old SUN Adam Harrington, who collapsed and died in 1995 whilst out SUN walking with his family - a blood clot in his coronary SUN artery had caused his heart to fail. Adam’s father David SUN leads the Kronos Quartet in this recording. SUN SUN The same quartet play Steve Reich’s Different Trains – the SUN taped voices belong to 3 holocaust survivors speaking about SUN their experiences including their journeys to concentration SUN camp incarceration. Combined with sounds of trains and SUN sirens this is the hellish back drop to an extract from SUN Dante’s Divine Comedy (Inferno) where the pilgrim beholds SUN the chilling sight of lost souls being plagued by wasps, SUN hornets and maggots. SUN SUN Gluck’s Orpheus is grief stricken at the loss of his wife SUN Eurydice but is granted permission by the gods to journey to SUN the realm of the dead and bring her back to life. The second SUN scene of Act 2 takes place in Elysium - the final resting SUN places of the souls of the heroic and the virtuous – where SUN the chorus of the spirits eventually bring forth Eurydice – SUN ‘already she revives and recovers all the flower of her SUN beauty’ SUN SUN After this idyllic setting we move to an altogether more SUN down to earth version of Heaven with English novelist Julian SUN Barnes – his protagonist seems bemused and confused by the SUN Heaven he’s arrived in, complete with golfing, shopping and SUN other worldly pleasures. Perhaps as Sinatra says the best SUN really is yet to come… SUN SUN Dorothy Parker’s brief poem I Shall Come Back is another SUN ghostly aspiration as she imagines coming back to her lover SUN despite the hurt he has caused – though sadly she appears to SUN expect more heart break even in death. Another broken heart SUN causes the death of Giselle in Adolphe Adam’s Ballet, who SUN proceeds as a spirit to protect her lover from the vengeance SUN of a group of evil female spirits called the Wilis. SUN SUN Johnny Cash’s rendition of Ain’t No Grave was released SUN earlier this year on the posthumous album American VI. A SUN devout but troubled Christian and the self professed SUN ‘biggest sinner of them all’ Cash here expresses grim SUN determination in the face of death that the grave won’t hold SUN him down. SUN SUN We stay Stateside with Walt Whitman’s Unnamed Lands – a SUN reflection similar to Hardy’s on the presence of those gone SUN before existing in some way in the world around us. It SUN reflects to a certain extent Whitman’s pantheist beliefs – SUN that the universe (ie nature) and God are identical. Keith SUN Jarrett’s interpretation of Americana accompanies. SUN SUN 16th century Franco-Flemish composer (and associate of the SUN murderous Gesualdo) Jean de Macque takes us back to Dante’s SUN Divine Comedy but this time an extract from Volume 3 – SUN Paradise. This ethereal and joyous vision of the Elect in SUN the form of a pure white rose, the angels swarming like SUN bees, and God’s Divine Light conquering all, along with SUN Faure’s Requiem – In Paradisum, give an optimistic and SUN ethereal conclusion to our journey through the afterlife.

What does it all mean? Of course it's useful as a MON means of avoiding drowning. In a very few cases it might MON result in a satisfying career path. It's an enjoyable MON leisure activity, and a way of keeping fit. But Ian suspects MON there's something more to it, and his reflections lead him MON to speculate on the wider meaning of swimming, on the many MON instances of significant swims and swimmers in film and MON literature, and on some of the figures who have swum through MON the pages of our literary canon. Taking his cue from WH MON Auden, Ian finds analogies between the act of swimming and MON the act of poetic organisation, and recognises in other MON writers and philosophers the impulse to swim as an escape MON into the imagination.

When that orchestra got into MON financial difficulties in the 1980s he was asked to become MON Managing Director. He held the position for twenty years, MON turning around the fortunes of the orchestra and MON establishing relationships with some of the leading MON conductors like Michael Tilson Thomas, Mstislav Rostropovich MON and Sir Colin Davis. He also helped plan some of the most MON innovative and succesful concert series in London musical MON life, developed the orchestra's education department and MON established LSO St Luke's in a previously derelict church. MON Gillinson was also behind of the launch of the LSO's own CD MON label. MON MON In 2005 he became Chief Executive and Artistic Director of MON Carnegie Hall in New York one of the leading concert venues MON in the world.

MON MON Ballard and Grenadier are probably best known as members of MON pianist Brad Mehldau's trio. They met Turner in the 1990s MON and though they've individually collaborated with the likes MON of Chick Corea, Pat Metheny and Joshua Redman, they say "Fly MON needed to happen" such is their shared instinct for MON expansive, intelligent and emotive improvised music. In the MON words of Brad Mehldau, "it's music that hits the head and MON then seeps into the heart". MON MON Taborn has visited the UK frequently as keyboard player of MON choice for the likes of Tim Berne and Chris Potter, but this MON concert saw him bring his own acoustic trio to London for MON the first time.

TUE TUE 20:25 BBC Proms b00tkn91 (Listen) TUE 2010, Prom 61, Hansel und Gretel - Act 3 TUE TUE 21:30 Sunday Feature b00jhny7 (Listen) TUE Wheels and Stones TUE TUE When George Sturt had to take over his father's TUE wheelwright's business in 1884, he realised that his book TUE learning made him ignorant about what he called 'a tangled TUE web of folk knowledge'. Yet in 1923 he published an account TUE of the process of building wooden wheels and making wagons, TUE which he had become fiercely proud especially because he was TUE keenly aware that his trade was slipping away. TUE TUE Robert Powell reads from George Sturt's "The Wheelwright's TUE Shop". Punctuating Sturt's observations about apprentices, TUE pricing, drunken sawyers, injuries and the threat of TUE machinery, are the stories of a contemporary stonemason TUE Simon Verity, who carves in cathedrals and villas, and TUE Charlotte de Syllas, a jeweller whose work is shown in TUE museums. We also hear from a firm of coach wrights in Kent. TUE TUE Sturt saw that he would not be able to compete with the TUE motorcar but there are still a few highly skilled masters of TUE traditional crafts working in Britain. TUE TUE The modern accounts reinforce Sturt's pride in his craft and TUE also highlight the struggles of trying to survive and shine TUE when others are outsourcing, using cheaper materials and TUE looking for commercial success. TUE TUE The feature travels from Simon Verity's Caithness croft, to TUE Charlotte de Syllas's studio in Dorset to the Crofords TUE carriage sheds in Kent and to Farnham in Surrey, where TUE George Sturt was based. TUE TUE Narrator: Robert Powell TUE Producer and Presenter: Judith Kampfner.

Henrietta Heald TUE profiles the Victorian inventor, arms dealer and TUE industrialist William Armstrong. Armstrong brought global TUE fame to the Tyne, employing thousands in the manufacture of TUE machinery, ships - and guns. But he also created the first TUE house in the world to be lit by hydroelectricity. He TUE epitomised the dynamism of his age and attracted many TUE epithets, from "visionary genius" to "merchant of death".

THU THU 21:15 Sunday Feature b00pl1pk (Listen) THU In Search of the Gododdin THU THU Poet Gwyneth Lewis explores the origins and meaning of the THU Gododdin, a sixth-century Welsh poem elegising the slain THU British warriors who made a last stand against the Saxons in THU the famous Battle of Catterick. THU THU Fourteen centuries ago an elite band of three hundred THU warriors set out from Edinburgh and marched south to THU Catterick in Yorkshire to meet a force of 10,000 Saxons in a THU bloody pitched battle. At the end of a week of ferocious THU combat all but three of the 300 lay dead and, with them, the THU last hope of the Old North - the original Britons - against THU the Saxon invaders. But the battle left an enduring literary THU legacy: one of the three survivors, Aneirin, fled back to THU Edinburgh and composed the Gododdin, an epic poem to THU commemorate his fallen comrades. THU THU Gwyneth follows the war band from the Edinburgh stronghold THU where they spent a year feasting and drinking mead to the THU landscape of northern England where they met their fate. As THU she travels she discovers new insights into contemporary THU Britain from a sixth-century poem written in Welsh about a THU group of warriors from Scotland who fought a battle in THU Yorkshire.

Thomas Arne THU was the leading figure in London in his day, and his THU symphonies show off the latest trends in taste and THU refinement. JS Bach's eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann, showed THU great promise, but had a disappointingly uneven career, THU although his music forged a new path. Pergolesi's Stabat THU Mater, a work of great lyrical beauty, is still as popular THU today as it was in the composer's tragically short lifetime. THU THU W. F.

The influence of FRI Berlin on British writers and artists has been tremendous FRI and there'll be excerpts of writing by Stephen Spender, FRI Christopher Isherwood, John Le Carre and David Bowie.

FRI FRI 21:45 Sunday Feature b00rjy9k (Listen) FRI A World Beyond Narnia FRI FRI Louise Doughty explores the phenomenal growth of the Young FRI Adult Fiction market, which made over £50 million in the UK FRI in 2009, and asks if it is at last coming of age. FRI FRI Until recently, when girls and boys outgrew the children's FRI sections of bookshops and libraries, they moved on - for FRI better or worse - to adult novels. This is no longer the FRI case. The Young Adult Fiction market made over £50 million FRI in the UK in 2009, an astonishing growth of 89% on the FRI previous year, and while half of this was spent on Stephenie FRI Meyer's extraordinarily succesful Twilight series, the genre FRI does now seem to have reached a critical mass. As well as FRI being a novelist and broadcaster, Louise Doughty is also the FRI mother of a teenage daughter, and for this very contemporary FRI edition of Radio Three's Sunday Feature, she explores the FRI origins and appeal of the genre and asks what it tells us FRI about the lives of teenagers today. FRI FRI Louise's starting point is her own memory of reading the FRI final book of C.S.Lewis' Narnia series. In The Last Battle, FRI Susan is exiled from Narnia because she no longer believes FRI and because she has become too interested in "lipstick and FRI nylons and invitations..." but if Lewis had no interest in FRI the teen years, there have been, ever since the 1950s, a FRI growing number of writers for whom this readership is highly FRI appealing. FRI FRI Louise speaks to Richelle Mead, author of the cult Vampire FRI Academy series, to Patrick Ness, Meg Rossoff and William FRI Nicholson, all of them award-winning authors for children FRI and young people, and she visits Crossley Heath School in FRI Halifax to hear from young adults themselves about what FRI reading means to them and about their likes and dislikes FRI when it comes to "A World Beyond Narnia."
