In an archive interview SUN with Alyn Shipton, Russell looks back at the highlights of a SUN recorded repertoire that began with Dizzy Gillespie's big SUN band and went on to encompass modal jazz and the dawn of SUN jazz rock fusion. SUN SUN George Russell was a ceaseless experimenter - spending most SUN of his life writing his theoretical masterwork on Lydian SUN Modal theory - but on the way writing extended compositions SUN for Dizzy Gillespie in the 1940s, introducing Miles Davis SUN and John Coltrane to modal jazz in the '50s, and mixing SUN world jazz and rock with Jan Garbarek and Terje Rypdal in SUN the 60s. His Living Time Orchestra ran from the '70s to the SUN present decade and included innovative soloists from both SUN sides of the Atlantic. In conversation with Alyn Shipton, SUN who visited Russell at his home near the New England SUN Conservatory in Boston, the composer looks back at what he SUN considers the highlights of his work, and at his standard SUN compositions such as All About Rosie and Ezz-Thetic.

Based on the epic SUN poem by Ariosto, the libretto by Grazio Braccioli provided SUN Vivaldi with some very intense dramatic opportunities, SUN including star-crossed lovers, dark magic and ultimate madness. SUN Nowadays, Vivaldi is not remembered for his contributions to SUN the stage, but he once claimed to have written 94 operas! SUN Evidence has only been found of 20 of those, and much of the SUN music was recycled endlessly from one production to another, SUN but Orlando Furioso was arguably his most popular opera, and SUN has been revived a number of times in recent years. The most SUN celebrated recording, arguably, is the one made in 1978 by I SUN Solisti Veneti with Marilyn Horne in the title role and SUN Victoria de los Angeles as the sorceress Alcina. Today's SUN programme focuses mainly on a more recent recording by SUN Jean-Christophe Spinosi's Ensemble Matheus, which featured SUN Philippe Jaroussky as Ruggiero. Jaroussky is preparing to SUN play that role on stage in Paris in 2011, and speaks very SUN enthusiastically about the opera, and about Vivaldi's SUN much-neglected music for the stage.

SUN The fact that Noelle's a disgraced ex-copper with criminal SUN past and a severe lack of money isn't helping her hang on to SUN him.

SUN Traditionally it's said that Roman rule ended in the year SUN 410: 1600 years ago, when the Roman emperor Honorius SUN supposedly told us to fend for ourselves, but it's much more SUN complicated than that. Britain became embroiled in a series SUN of revolts by imperial usurpers which weren't so much SUN 'Romans Go Home' but 'Emperor come here!' and it all went SUN very badly wrong. SUN SUN It's hard to imagine London closing for business, becoming a SUN ghost town whose citizens have fled, with a choice of SUN growing their own veg in the countryside or becoming bully SUN boys for a local war leader, but that's exactly what SUN happened when Roman rule collapsed in Britain. Londoners SUN left strange thank-you gifts for the gods as they closed the SUN city down - like the Draper's Lane hoard of copper pots and SUN sacrifices, which we'll be investigating. SUN SUN The usurper emperors accidentally brought a systems collapse SUN to tipping point. In the maelstrom that followed, pagan SUN Anglo Saxons who'd originally been Roman mercenaries were SUN joined by new immigrants from their Germanic homelands and a SUN lot of eastern Romano-Brits decided that they were the SUN future, while others desperately clung to their Roman SUN Christian ways. But in Wales, Cornwall and Devon, they SUN looked aghast at this barbarism. An early form of SUN devolution, and a boost in local power (legend says from the SUN rebel emperor Magnus Maximus), led the West to hold on SUN proudly to their Roman identity, fending off Saxons and SUN assimilated Saxon 'wannabes' all the way till the medieval SUN campaigns of Edward I. Edward might have thought of himself SUN as the true heir of Rome but to the Welsh he was nothign SUN more than the last barbarian. SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00vl3yx (Listen) SUN Witches and Sorcerers SUN SUN Halloween: the night of the year traditionally believed to SUN be the time when the veil between this world and the realm SUN of the supernatural is drawn back. On All Hallow’s Eve Words SUN and Music takes a trip to the dark side with an exploration SUN of music and literature’s favourite practitioners of the SUN black arts: witches and sorcerers. SUN SUN The Malleus Maleficarum of 1486 is the literary work SUN responsible for conjuring up much of the imagery we SUN associate with witches. Its two German authors Heinrich SUN Kramer and James Sprenger sought to define witchcraft and SUN tackled one of the most persistent fascinations with SUN witches: how they get around. They explained it thus: ‘They SUN take the unguent which….they make at the devil's instruction SUN from the limbs of children….and anoint with it a chair or a SUN broomstick; whereupon they are immediately carried up into SUN the air’. SUN SUN It is up in the air and riding menacingly on a broomstick SUN that we join our first witch, Robert Herrick’s Hag. The SUN insistent rise and fall of the metre carries us onwards with SUN our ominous rider ‘O'er ditches and mires’. We can only SUN speculate that she would have been on her way to the very SUN event which Mussorgsky’s tone poem Night on the Bare SUN Mountain so richly evokes: a Witches Sabbath. The thunder SUN claps of percussion open the programme in the stormy climate SUN best suited to spell-casting, cauldron-stirring and the SUN necromantic arts. SUN SUN Shakespeare’s Macbeth is full of foreboding weather, his SUN three hags gather on the ‘blasted’ heath, and ‘Hover through SUN the fog and filthy air’. The Bard’s trio of witches may have SUN some parallels with the group of Scots accused during the SUN Berwick Witch Trials. They were tried for using spells to SUN conjure up storms which prevented King James VI of Scotland SUN (later James I of England) from returning home after a trip SUN to Denmark. SUN SUN Shakepeare’s eerie supernatural domain in The Tempest is SUN quite different from that of the heath. Thomas Ades’ SUN haunting, ethereal Ariel ushers in the flawed sorcerer SUN Prospero as he prepares to abandon his ‘book’. The figure of SUN a hubristic magician is one also taken up by Christopher SUN Marlowe, with his charismatic Faustus revelling in the SUN marvels he will propagate now that he has been ‘ravish’d’ by SUN the seductive power of magic. Goethe takes a lighter look at SUN the pitfalls of wizardry, as he traces the disastrous SUN attempts of a novice sorcerer’s apprentice to practice his SUN master’s (dark) arts. The resulting chaos is captured to SUN stupendous musical affect in Paul Dukas’ symphonic poem SUN inspired by Goethe’s work. SUN SUN Dukas’ orchestration in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice SUN brilliantly captures the elements tumbling wildly out of SUN control, with water from a mop bucket turning into a SUN tempest. The watery domain is often imagined as the site of SUN witchcraft. Dante Gabriel Rosetti in The Sea Spell portrays SUN an entranced sailor lured to a watery grave by lute playing SUN sirens. The tempting wails of these water witches are eerily SUN evoked by that master of the orchestral image, Debussy, in SUN his Sirènes. Tennyson’s muscular verse depicts the SUN subterranean domain of The Kraken, the wizard of the SUN crashing waves; waves so powerfully painted in musical form SUN by Benjamin Britten’s Sea Interlude from Peter Grimes. SUN SUN But when I think of witches, it isn’t Macbeth’s weird SUN sisters which first come to mind, but a tall, green faced SUN American lady with a pointy black hat, a cackle and a strong SUN aversion to water. And when I think of wizards, it is of a SUN confused charlatan heading off in a hot air balloon with SUN Judy Garland. No exploration of witches and wizards would be SUN complete without some brief return to the land of Oz, where SUN we join Dorothy and her nemesis the Wicked Witch of the West SUN (played so memorably by Margaret Hamilton), as they make SUN their way along the Yellow Brick Road in search of the SUN Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

On MON the centenary of the Russian writer's death, Rosamund's new MON biography takes us beyond his fame as a novelist into the MON many Tolstoys we don't know. MON MON The life of the author of Anna Karenina and War and Peace MON could easily have formed the basis of one of his own novels. MON From 'Departure of a Grand Old Man' made in 1912 to 'The MON Last Station' in 2009 film has been fascinated with MON Tolstoy's life. But there hasn't been an English language MON biography for 20 years. Now Tolstoy: A Russian Life charts MON his evolution from young aristocrat fighting in the Crimea MON to world novelist, social reformer and spiritual guru, MON examining his impact on many of the movements of the modern MON age, including emergent communism, vegetarianism and animal MON rights. MON MON Photographs depicting real violence from around the world MON are constantly in the news and on the internet. Anne is MON joined by Susie Linfield and Sean O'Hagan to discuss the MON ethics of looking at them. Is it a form of voyeurism as MON Susan Sontag argued or, as Linfield argues in her new book, MON a proper engagement with the tyrannies of the world? MON MON This weekend Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival takes MON happiness as its central theme. Philosopher Julian Baggini MON looks forward to it by examining philosophical arguments MON about happiness from Aristotle onwards. MON MON And, with the US mid term elections on Tuesday, grassroots MON movement the Tea Party has been grabbing all the headlines. MON Historians Adam Smith and Jill Lepore join Anne to explain MON how the dumping of tea in Boston Harbour grew into such a MON signal event in the American political imagination. And the MON various ways in which the tea party in particular and the MON revolution in general are constantly remade by political MON movements.

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

When historians seek to bind world history under TUE grand ideas like 'civilisation' - do they explore our TUE universal humanity - or deliver a biased account? TUE TUE Historian Ian Morris has written "Why the West Rules - For TUE Now" which has been described as the closest thing to a TUE 'unified field theory of history'. He's joined in studio by TUE Richard Miles, author of Ancient Worlds, which looks at the TUE origins and evolution of western civilisation. Philip Dodd TUE asks them whether an account of history that approaches the TUE objectivity of science is a delusion when confronted by the TUE myriad diversity of human affairs. Is our idea of history so TUE fragmented that we find it difficult to accept the idea of TUE one big story that includes us all.

TUE TUE After Shakespeare, Anton Chekhov is the most perfomed TUE playwright in the world and amongst the most revered writers TUE of short stories. While the pleasure he has given to theatre TUE audiences and readers is immense, these Essays explore his TUE legacy in terms of the craft and technique that he continues TUE to bequeath to theatre practitioners and writers today. From TUE her best known work, Our Country's Good, to her latest play, TUE The Line, Timberlake Wertenbaker is one of our most highly TUE valued contemporary playwrights. Chekhov is her favourite TUE writer, and in this Essay - couched as a love letter - she TUE reflects on what she has learned from him in terms of TUE theatre-craft.

But to its critics, the Enlightenment has now WED become a twisted dogma - intolerant of the religious, WED anti-Islamic and hostile to those (non-Europeans) who don't WED share its values. WED WED Do we need more Enlightenment - or does it need to be WED returned to the European library stacks once again? To WED discuss this Rana Mitter is joined historian Justin WED Champion; Karen O'Brien, Professor of English at Warwick; WED the theologian Phillip Blond who heads the think tank, WED ResPublica; and the crossbench peer, Baroness Haleh Afshar.

Professor Balkwill runs a THU research team of 25 scientists, sits on parliament's cancer THU committee, directs public centres of the understanding of THU cells and is a resident researcher at Queen Mary, University THU of London. But as someone who operates at the front line of THU the fight against cancer are the military metaphors we THU habitually use appropriate when one is trying to save the THU body from its own cells. Indeed, the public understanding of THU disease and of science more generally is high on her list of THU priorities. She has published a number of books about THU science for children and was given the Royal Society Michael THU Faraday prize for her 'outstanding work in communicating the THU concepts, facts and fascination of science'.

FRI FRI Free Thinking, Radio 3's annual festival of ideas, is taking FRI "the pursuit of happiness" as its central theme this year. FRI Happiness is rapidly becoming a high-profile pre-occupation FRI of governments as they explore ways of assessing the FRI state-of-the-nation beyond economic output - both David FRI Cameron and Ed Miliband have expressed their intention to FRI measure Britain's "wellbeing". FRI FRI The opening lecture of the festival, delivered in front of FRI an audience at the Free Thinking's main venue the Sage FRI Gateshead, is given by Jacqueline Wilson, one of Britain's FRI most successful children's writers who has sold over 30 FRI million books in the UK and is a former Children's Laureate. FRI FRI Famous for challenging the traditional subjects of FRI children's fiction, Jacqueline's Free Thinking Lecture FRI explores her own background and the way enormous literary FRI success has changed her view of happiness. She draws on FRI years of correspondence with her young readers and their FRI families to understand the changing nature of happiness, and FRI how we can find it today. And from her perspective creating FRI fiction but corresponding with reality, she sounds a FRI warning: perhaps the idea of a "happy ending" has given us FRI misguided ideas about how achievable happiness really is. FRI FRI In the weekend following Jacqueline's lecture, Free Thinking FRI includes events with Kevin McCloud, former Metropolitan FRI Chief Commissioner Lord Blair, actor Fiona Shaw, philosopher FRI Mary Midgley and screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce - all FRI will be broadcast on Radio 3's Night Waves in the subsequent FRI weeks. Go to bbc.co.uk/radio3/freethinking for more details. FRI FRI Producer: James Cook.

FRI FRI The novelist, short story writer and film-maker Xiaolu Guo FRI was born in a fishing village in south China. Now resident FRI in London, she makes unexpected connections between the FRI lives of the Chinese peasants of her childhood and the lives FRI of the Russian peasants as depicted by Chekhov in his short FRI stories. In a new short story in which she imagines herself FRI travelling as Chekhov himself to the prison island of FRI Sakhalin, she pays tribute to all she has learned from FRI Chekhov in his deeply humane depiction of peasant life in a FRI bitter winter landscape.
