Completed in 2005, her eleven-year SAT project to record all the major keyboard works of Bach SAT cemented her status as one of the most celebrated performers SAT of Bach on the modern piano. Her latest project, The Bach SAT Book, will see her perform two concerts in which she pairs SAT works by Bach with six new works by contemporary composers. SAT SAT Tom will be asking Angela how a girl from Ottawa becomes SAT obsessed with Bach, why she has a problem with her famous SAT Canadian predecessor, Glenn Gould, and his approach to the SAT composer, and how and why his music seems capable of SAT sustaining her whole musical life. SAT SAT RAF Music Services SAT SAT Based at RAF Northolt and RAF Cranwell, Royal Air Force SAT Music Services consists of one hundred and seventy musicians SAT divided between four main bands and orchestras.

The production is directed by acclaimed theatre SAT director and actor Simon McBurney in his first foray into opera.

SAT SAT 15:00 World Routes b00vkp5m (Listen) SAT London Jazz Festival 2010, Hugh Masekela, The Mahotella Queens SAT SAT A London Jazz Festival concert featuring some of South SAT Africa's biggest stars. Hugh Masekela has been a master of SAT South African jazz since the 1960s, becoming an SAT international celebrity with his hit 'Grazin' in the Grass'. SAT The Mahotella Queens are of a similar vintage, and can still SAT excite audiences with their high-energy township dance SAT music. SAT SAT This concert was recorded on the opening night of the 2010 SAT London Jazz Festival. Hugh Masekela learned the trumpet at SAT the age of 14, and by the end of the 1950s was recognised as SAT a top player. In 1960 following the Sharpeville massacre, he SAT left South Africa and settled for a while in the USA. After SAT his 1987 song 'Bring him back home' came true with the SAT release of Nelson Mandela, he returned to South Africa. Now SAT 71, he is still recording and still touring the world. SAT SAT The Mahotella Queens are young in comparison, forming in SAT 1964. They had a string of hits with the 'King of the SAT groaners' Simon Mahlatini Nkabinde, combining the energy of SAT township 'mbaqanga' music with tight vocal harmonies. The SAT current band members - Hilda, Nobesuthu and Midred - were SAT all in the original 1964 line-up.

Set in the ancient SAT kingdom of Thrace, this is a story of nobility in the face SAT of aggression. Radamisto and his wife Zenobia are under SAT siege in the city from the Armenian tyrant Tiridate. SAT Tiridate has his eye on Zenobia as his prize, despite SAT already being married to Polissena, who also happens to be SAT Radamisto's sister. Radamisto's father, Farasmane, has SAT already been captured, and Tiridate's henchman, Tigrane, is SAT under instruction to bring Zenobia to him at all costs. SAT Radamisto himself tries to follow a noble path despite the SAT tumult surrounding him. SAT SAT Handel brought some of Italy's greatest singers to London SAT for this opera, giving some wonderful arias to his star SAT performers. In this new production from English National SAT Opera, the acclaimed countertenor Lawrence Zazzo takes the SAT title role, and the director David Alden teams up with the SAT experienced Handelian, Laurence Cummings.

SAT SAT 21:25 Between the Ears b00lkm83 (Listen) SAT A Wireless Revelation SAT SAT At the back of the Bible hides perhaps the most SAT misunderstood but profoundly influential little book of them SAT all: the Apocalypse of St John, also known as the Book of SAT Revelation. The Apocalypse - which means "unveiling" - is a SAT breathless and intense sequence of visions given to the SAT exiled John on the Aegean island of Patmos, 70 miles or so SAT from Ephesus in what is now Turkey, at the end of the first SAT century AD. Although it's well-known for being a challenging SAT read, Revelation compensates right from the start with an SAT explicit blessing on both reader and listener. Thereafter SAT its twenty-two chapters are packed full of pictures and SAT patterns that have inspired artists and composers (and SAT scientists, kings, and politicians) down the nineteen SAT centuries since it was written: seven seals and seven SAT trumpets, a beast with seven heads and ten horns, a woman SAT with a crown of twelve stars on her head, and a Hallelujah SAT chorus! However, the book also ends with a curse on anyone SAT tampering with its text, so this radiophonic collage SAT presents the complete text from mysterious beginning to epic SAT end - in a communal reading from a number of translations SAT old and new (including echoes of New Testament Greek as well SAT as Mandarin, Arabic, Persian, and Urdu). John Ashenfelter SAT reads from the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible; SAT additional voices include the Reverend Alan Walker, the SAT Reverend Clifford Hill, Ekene Akalawu, Kathryn Knight SAT (presenter), the former Bishop of Rochester Michael SAT Nazir-Ali, and the Reverend Richard Coles. Decorating and SAT illuminating the sacred text as it unfolds are iconic SAT fragments from Handel's Messiah and every movement of SAT Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time, as well as choral SAT music by Hildegard of Bingen and Antony Pitts, who also SAT mixed this extended version.

SUN SUN 21:30 Sunday Feature b00vkpcp (Listen) SUN Walking with Freud SUN SUN 100 years on, composer David Matthews and psychoanalyst SUN Anthony Cantle retrace the walk that Mahler and Freud SUN famously took around the Dutch town of Leiden. SUN SUN On 26th August 1910, Gustav Mahler took a four hour walk SUN with Sigmund Freud. Mahler's marriage to Alma was in tatters SUN and, on the edge of a breakdown, he'd telegraphed Freud SUN asking for an urgent consultation. SUN Freud was on holiday with his family in Leiden, Holland and SUN asked Mahler to make the journey from Vienna to Leiden, SUN which he duly did. SUN SUN These two great Viennese Jews met for the only documented SUN time in their lives in Leiden. They walked around the city SUN for 4 hours and in that time, Mahler poured his heart out to SUN Freud. SUN SUN In this last summer of his life, Mahler had discovered that SUN his wife Alma was having an affair with the architect Walter SUN Gropius. This discovery seemed to totally unhinge Mahler. SUN There are descriptions of Alma taking trays of food to him SUN in his composing hut and finding him lying on the floor SUN weeping his heart out. And he wrote a letter telling of how SUN he stood at Alma's bedside night after night listening to SUN the sound of her breathing. SUN SUN And throughout this agonising period, Mahler wrote the SUN sketches for his 10th Symphony. The music is highly SUN autobiographical and much of its content reflects Mahler's SUN extreme anxiety about Alma's betrayal and the future of SUN their marriage, but it ends (in Mahler's draft) with a SUN passionate reaffirmation of love. SUN SUN The 10th Symphony remained unfinished at Mahler's death the SUN following year. David Matthews helped with the orchestration SUN of Deryck Cooke's performing version of the Symphony. SUN SUN In this programme, David Matthews and Anthony Cantle visit SUN Leiden 100 years on, to walk and talk together about this SUN tantalising episode which is close to both of their hearts. SUN Not only do they retell the story of the meeting and give it SUN a context, but as a composer and psychoanalyst, they also SUN bring their own professional and personal insights to the SUN story. SUN SUN David Matthews is a British composer of mostly orchestral, SUN chamber, choral, vocal, and piano works that have been SUN performed throughout the world; he is also active as a SUN scholar and writer. SUN SUN Anthony Cantle is a Fellow of the Institute of SUN Psycho-Analysis, London and a practising Psychoanalyst. He's SUN also a member of the UK Gustav Mahler Society. SUN SUN Producer, Rosie Boulton. SUN SUN 22:15 Words and Music b00ntbpg (Listen) SUN Solitude SUN SUN The desire to be alone, to roam far from the madding crowd, SUN evokes complex emotions. Solitude can both inspire people SUN and scare them. It can be a desperate state or a joyous SUN one. And it can be experienced both when one is alone in a SUN room and when one is surrounded by that madding crowd. SUN SUN Paul McGann and Kirsty Besterman read works inspired by the SUN state of solitude. Lord Byron feels freedom in isolation, SUN surrounded as he is by the beauty of nature . Emily SUN Dickinson too finds wonder in the loneliness of her secluded SUN life in nineteenth century New England. And poets like Walt SUN Whitman and James Tate, when alone, notice the tiny things SUN in life in ‘Noiseless Patient Spider’ and ‘Cricket’. SUN Alexandre Dumas in ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ and Stevie SUN Smith both explore the sensation of being locked away and SUN the fear of isolation that comes with enforced solitude. SUN SUN Musically the idea of being alone has explored in many ways SUN from the very simple idea of a solo instrument to the full SUN orchestra creating the sensation of isolation. We start the SUN programme by journeying with Strauss’ hero in ‘Ein SUN Heldenleben’ as he retires from the world. But we discover SUN just how much fun being alone can be with Rose Murphy’s SUN version of ‘Me and My Shadow’. SUN SUN Rued Langgard’s ‘String Quartet No. 6’ and Tomas SUN Transtromer’s poem ‘Solitude’ are heard together as they SUN both explore the ways in which the openness and isolation of SUN a specific landscape, the Swedish landscape, has influenced SUN both words and music. The Irish landscape is heard in Yeats’ SUN ‘Lake Isle of Innisfree’ in which the poet yearns for the SUN peace and tranquillity of the island where he spent his SUN boyhood summers. SUN SUN The programme ends with Delius’ work for tenor, soprano, SUN chorus and orchestra, ‘A Song of the High Hills’, a piece SUN that epitomises the conflicting emotions provoked by SUN solitude. Delius said with this piece that he “tried to SUN express the joy and exhilaration one feels in the mountains SUN and also the loneliness and melancholy of the high solitude SUN and the grandeur of the wide far distances.” SUN SUN Produced by Georgie Robinson.

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b00w0c1w (Listen) MON Drottningholm, Pilgrimage to Drottningholm MON MON i) Pilgrimage to Drottningholm MON MON King Gustavus III of Sweden, 'The Theatre King' (1746-1792) MON was a sort of Louis XIV of his country, an actor manqué and MON opera buff. Such was his thespian passion that his advisers MON had on occasions to shepherd him away from the grease paint MON back to running the country! Over Gustavus's turbulent MON reign, which was supported by France, he oversaw a flowering MON of music bringing into Sweden first-rate German composers. MON Joseph Martin Kraus, for both Joseph Haydn and Gluck 'a MON genius', was recruited along with Johann Gottlieb Naumann. MON They joined a host of other composers, librettists, dancers MON and linguists to harvest a crop of the first Swedish MON language operas, many of which were first performed at the MON Drottningholm Opera House. Today Donald Macleod leaves MON Stockholm by steam-boat to fulfill a long-held dream to MON visit this treasure of an opera house suspended in time and, MON bar the odd stage rope or two, exactly as it was more than MON 200 years ago. The theatre, part of the Swedish Royal Court, MON is still used and in today's episode Donald's shown around MON by the General Manager Per Forsström and Artistic Director MON Mark Tatlow. MON MON Soprano Elisabeth Söderström described it as the 'inside of MON a Stradivarius'. For many singers, performing classical MON opera at the Drottningholm Opera House is a Eureka moment MON where the logic behind every scene- change, every pairing of MON instruments, every reckless ride in a cloud-machine becomes MON wonderfully clear. A breathtaking working museum of the MON Gustavian era, the theatre exactly replicates the candle MON light of the period and still uses all the orginal MON auditorium seats and stage machinery. MON MON This week Donald Macleod is joined in Drottningholm, West of MON Stockholm, by mezzo Anne Sophie von Otter, soprano Susanne MON Rydén, former director of the Drottningholm Theatre Museum, MON Inga Lewenhaupt, Per Forsström, General Manager, and MON Artistic Director Mark Tatlow. Together they explore the MON fairy tale of the rediscovery of the Opera House in the MON early 20th century. They discuss the great influence Gluck MON had on the gathering of composers King Gustavus III signed MON up including the remarkable Joseph Martin Kraus. How, at a MON time when Sweden's old foe Denmark was still at large, MON Gustavus III commissioned Johann Gottlieb Naumann to write MON 'Gustaf Wasa' - a tub-thumping nationalistic opera. MON MON The arcane world of on-stage gesture promoted by Gustavus MON III is also revealed along with a detailed look at the MON glorious assembly of stage-machines and trap doors at the Theatre. MON MON In the final programme Donald plays an excerpt from this MON summer's production at Drottningholm of Mozart's Don MON Giovanni. He's then joined at the Riddarholmskyrkan church MON in Stockholm by Christian Buchberger of the Swedish Royal MON Courts to discuss the grisly end of King Gustavus III a MON theatrical man in life as well as death.

MON A brilliant, caustic and prolific polemicist, he left behind MON some 15 million written words - twenty times the length of MON the Bible - in almost every literary form, from plays, poems MON and novels to pamphlets, letters and essays. His subjects MON included philosophy, science, travel, religion and civil MON liberties and, by the time he died, aged 84 in 1778, his MON breathtaking output and canny media manipulation had made MON him the most famous writer in the world. Even today, his MON thoughts on religion, tolerance and human rights can seem MON strikingly contemporary and provocative. And many people may MON be familiar with his words without realizing it: famous MON Voltaire sayings include "in the best of all possible MON worlds", "we must cultivate the garden" and "if God did not MON exist, it would be necessary to invent him", though his much MON quoted rallying cry for tolerant multiculturalism: "I MON disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death MON your right to say it" turns out, in fact, to have been MON invented on Voltaire's behalf by a female English biographer MON in 1906. MON MON Professor Nicholas Cronk, director of the Voltaire MON Foundation in Oxford, introduces the great man, places him MON within the context of other Enlightenment thinkers, and MON celebrates his timeless satire on the human condition, the MON novel Candide, which was published 250 years ago.

WED WED Nicolas Sarkozy is alone at night in the gilded rooms of the WED Elysee Palace. Carla Bruni is out at a gig with Mick Jagger WED but the President has something rather more serious on his WED mind...... WED WED In July 2009, the French President Nicolas Sarkozy set up a WED Parliamentary committee to consider a possible ban in France WED of the burqa, the full Islamic dress. Agnes Poirier imagines WED the ruminations of the tired President: what would Voltaire, WED the father of "laicite" - the uniquely French interpretation WED of secularism - say on the matter? Would he ban the burqa? WED Sarkozy drifts off to sleep and finds himself in the WED oak-panelled library at the Chateau de Ferney, home of Voltaire. WED WED In a witty and thought-provoking tour de force of an Essay, WED French journalist Agnes Poirier brings Voltaire and his WED views firmly into the contemporary realm in an examination WED of one of the most vexed debates in France today. WED WED French born Agnès Poirier moved to London in 1995 and WED started writing as an independent journalist for Le Monde WED (1996) and then for Le Figaro as UK arts correspondent WED (1997-2001). Between 2001 and 2006, she was a political WED correspondent and film critic for Libération.

THU THU Lord Blair of Boughton, as Sir Ian Blair, was Britain's most THU senior police officer, Commissioner of the Metropolitan THU Police from February 2005 until the end of 2008. His tenure THU included the London Bombings of 2005 and the controversial THU shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes.

THU THU Having dealt with crime and policing up to the very highest THU level for over 35 years, Lord Blair comes to BBC Radio 3's THU Free Thinking festival of ideas to reflect on the part that THU violence plays in human behaviour: its origins, effects and THU how we as a society should deal with it.

The event occurred on November 1st, All THU Saints Day, which meant that the churches in one of the THU godliest cities in Catholic Europe were all packed while the THU brothels were relatively empty. Where, Voltaire wondered, THU was divine providence in all this? THU THU Simon Blackburn carefully explores not only Voltaire's THU coruscating views on the corrupt and powerful established THU church but also the complex question of his lingering faith. THU Above all, he examines the practical effect of Voltaire's THU ideas, celebrating the role of the Enlightenment in THU replacing the altars and thrones of an older Europe with the THU largely secular constitutional democracies that followed.

Whatever his doubts FRI about the Christian afterlife, his own immortality was FRI assured. In this fifth and final Essay on Voltaire, FRI Professor Nicholas Cronk explores the legacy of this FRI greatest of Enlightenment figures. He starts with the FRI extraordinary story of the removal of Voltaire's library, FRI book by book - and there were some seven thousand of them - FRI from his chateau in France all the way to St Petersburg, FRI where Catherine the Great planned to build a sort of FRI Voltaire theme park. He explores Voltaire's celebrity FRI status, both before and after his death, and goes on to FRI discuss how his ideas - about politics, about religion, FRI about tolerance - continue to resonate today. He concludes FRI with a poignant illustration of how, in the true spirit of FRI the Enlightenment, writers continue to debate with Voltaire FRI and, in so doing, perpetuate his legacy.
