SAT SAT 12:15 Music Feature b00wlg7h (Listen) SAT Erik Satie Walks to Work SAT SAT Composers don't come much odder than the Frenchman Erik SAT Satie (1866-1925). His music - from slow meditative pieces SAT to fast jokey ones with a flavour of the cabaret - was SAT astonishingly individual; and his way of life was just as SAT weird. Not least because he never had any money. SAT SAT In 1898 Satie moved from the heart of bohemian Paris to the SAT obscure suburb of Arcueil. No doubt he was desperate to SAT save money - but he also liked the idea of cutting himself SAT off from the musical establishment. Every day for a decade SAT or more he would walk the 10 kilometres north across the SAT city to earn a meagre living playing the piano in the SAT cabarets of Montmartre. If he missed the last train - or SAT couldn't afford it - he'd walk home again at night. He SAT walked, he looked, he listened - and he spent plenty of time SAT in cafes, where he drank, talked to friends and strangers, SAT and even wrote music. SAT SAT In this Music Feature Sarah Walker retraces Satie's SAT footsteps from Arcueil to Montmartre - and uncovers the SAT secrets behind his unique music: in the people and street SAT life of Paris, its cafés and cabarets, and in the very act SAT of walking itself. SAT SAT Presenter: Sarah Walker SAT Producer: David Gallagher.

SUN SUN He joins the members of the European Union Baroque Orchestra SUN directed from the violin by Enrico Onofri, and violinist SUN Margaret Faultless, for a look at how some of the artistic SUN innovations of late 17th Century Rome, focused the mind of a SUN young violin virtuoso, Arcangelo Corelli, and prompted him SUN to create what became the foundation of the influential and SUN ubiquitous late baroque concerto. SUN SUN Stephen focues on three concertos from the Opus 6 set of 12: SUN Numbers 4, 8 and 12, which includes the famous Christmas SUN Concerto. SUN SUN The programme was recorded as part of the 2010 Lufthansa SUN Festival of Baroque Music.

SUN SUN 20:00 Drama on 3 b00wlj9b (Listen) SUN The Marriage of Figaro SUN SUN As a prelude to The Genius of Mozart, Radio 3's major new SUN season in the new year, a rare chance to hear Beaumarchais' SUN original play. Bristling with social and political conflict, SUN behind the comic intrigues of da Ponte's libretto lies a SUN drama that was considered too dangerous to be allowed to be SUN performed in its own time. It is edgy, political, dealing SUN with class and stroppy servants sensing the smell of SUN Revolution in the air. SUN The author, Beaumarchais, led a life as colourful as the SUN world of his plays. At the height of the French Revolution, SUN as he had been a royal servant, he was brought before the SUN Revolutionary council. His life was spared when he declared SUN in his defence that he was the creator of Figaro. This SUN character epitomised the underdog striving to be free and SUN was hugely popular with the revolutionaries. Napoleon SUN realised its power when he declared it to be 'the Revolution SUN in action'. SUN SUN Figaro ..... Rupert Degas; SUN Count ..... Nicholas Rowe; SUN Suzanne .....

SUN SUN 22:00 Sunday Feature b00wlj9d (Listen) SUN The Little Prince Died at Dawn SUN SUN Screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce soars amongst the winged SUN words and short life of pilot and writer Antoine De SUN Saint-Exupéry whose career began and ended in the air. SUN SUN Pilot, poet, philosopher, journalist and inventor; Antoine SUN De Saint-Exupéry opened the skies and the deserts to an SUN astonished readership. He was a Conrad of the air, whose SUN trail blazing life and words transmitted the extreme magic SUN of early flight and exploration as the airplane began to SUN change our world. SUN SUN He flew the perilous mail routes over mountains, sea and SUN desert in the 1920's and vividly conveyed both the danger SUN and beauty in works such as Southern Mail and Night Flight. SUN It made him a literary star. By 1940, already ageing, he SUN looked down despairingly as he piloted his reconnaissance SUN plane over a conquered and burning France in 1940. SUN SUN The worm of war and the pain of his fallen nation became his SUN final aerial testament, Flight to Arras. Now exiled to SUN America, in support of Free France, he found unexpected SUN riches and adulation. It was there he began his most famous SUN work The Little Prince. But the call of the air and of SUN service was too strong for St. Exupery. In 1944 he finally SUN took to the air again. SUN SUN His old friends of the air were all but dead and gone. The SUN magic of flight was, for him, also ended and the future of SUN France was far from certain. Too old and broken, barely able SUN to squeeze into the cockpit of his unarmed P38 Lightning, SUN St. Ex was at long last able to fly over his beloved France, SUN even over his old family home once again as he took SUN photographs of Axis positions. In July '44, on what would SUN have almost certainly been his last flight before being SUN grounded, he vanished. Just like the beloved character of SUN The Little Prince, many have been waiting for him to return SUN ever since. SUN SUN Producer: Mark Burman. SUN SUN 22:45 Words and Music b00wlj9g (Listen) SUN Sheila Hancock and Scott Handy read poems and prose on the SUN festive theme of giving and receiving gifts. Through the SUN words of writers from Robert Herrick to O. Henry, and from SUN Edward Lear to Walt Whitman, Sheila Hancock and Scott Handy SUN unwrap simple gifts of friendship and lavish gifts of love. SUN They explore the desire of gifts and the rejection of SUN friendships. Music includes Siegfried Idyll by Wagner, SUN which was composed as a birthday present for his wife SUN Cosima, and Colleen's musical boxes.

Kevin Le SUN Gendre discusses with bandleaders Tommy Smith and Guy Barker SUN how to score and arrange for large ensembles. Kevin SUN illustrates the composition of Smith and Barker and how they SUN have applied an orchestral discipline to works that include SUN and require improvisation. SUN SUN Both composers have, and do, release large scale works.

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b00wljbs (Listen) MON Russian Opera, Episode 1 MON MON As part of the BBC's focus on opera in 2010, Donald Macleod MON explores the rich tradition of Russian opera, from Glinka to MON Schnittke. Opera began in Italy and that's where Russia got MON it from too; a string of Italians from Ristori to Cimarosa MON staged productions in St Petersburg and thereby planted the MON seeds from which Russia's own operatic tradition eventually MON sprang. That first sapling appeared in 1836 with Mikhail MON Glinka's A Life for the Tsar, universally regarded as the MON first 'real' Russian opera. In The Stone Guest, Alexander MON Dargomïzhsky continued the move away from the Italian MON tradition with his naturalistic approach to text-setting, MON which removed the distinction between aria and recitative. MON Mussorgsky took part in early private run-throughs of MON Dargomïzhsky's work and was so impressed that he decided to MON try his hand at the same kind of thing; the result was The MON Marriage, his first opera and an important milestone on the MON way to his masterpiece, Boris Godunov.

TUE TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week b00wljmw (Listen) TUE Russian Opera, Episode 2 TUE TUE Donald Macleod continues his exploration of the rich TUE tradition of Russian opera from Glinka to Schnittke with a TUE look at Musorgsky and Tchaikovsky, the two late-19th-century TUE titans whose work still forms the core of the repertoire. TUE It's hard to imagine two more different musical TUE personalities. Musorgsky was largely self-taught, a true TUE musical radical whose credo was artistic 'truth'; TUE Tchaikovsky, the product of a Western-oriented conservatoire TUE training, was concerned less with truth than with beauty. TUE Musorgsky worked on his opera Khovanshchina for nine years, TUE leaving it unfinished on his death; Tchaikovsky wrote The TUE Queen of Spades in 44 days of white-hot inspiration. Like TUE many of his contemporaries, Tchaikovsky regarded Musorgsky's TUE work as brilliant but flawed, but he nonetheless recognized TUE a major talent, writing that Musorgsky "flaunts his TUE illiteracy, takes pride in his ignorance, mucks along TUE anyhow. Yet for all his ugliness, Musorgsky does speak to us TUE in a new language. It may not be beautiful, but it is TUE fresh." Musorgsky's masterpiece, Boris Godunov, is still TUE fresh today. It's a disturbing and profoundly moving TUE psychological study of a deeply troubled individual, played TUE out against the broad canvas of the miserable plight of the TUE oppressed masses and set to some of the most thrilling music TUE ever written. Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin is likewise a TUE psychological study - of a man who comes to regret the path TUE his life has taken.

WED Borodin was a professor of chemistry who delved into such WED recherché areas of investigation as the nucleophilic WED displacement of chlorine by fluorine in benzenecarbonyl WED chloride. Little wonder that his labours on his opera Prince WED Igor occupied his spare moments for the best part of 20 WED years, but even that wasn't enough time for him to complete WED the work, which had to be painstakingly assembled and WED orchestrated from the composer's chaotic sketches by WED Rimsky-Korsakov and his young apprentice, Alexander WED Glazunov. César Cui, little-known today, also had a day job WED other than music - he was a respected authority on military WED engineering, whose Concise Textbook of Field Fortifications WED ran to nine editions. His opera A Feast in Time of Plague WED was rather less popular, but it's nonetheless interesting to WED hear an extract from this rarely performed work. WED Rimsky-Korsakov started his adult life as a sailor but took WED up the offer of a professorial post at the St Petersburg WED Conservatory in his late 20s. Over a long career he composed WED 15 operas, few of which are performed today outside of WED Russia. Based on a medieval Russian folk tale, Sadko is in WED Rimsky's epic vein. By contrast, Kashchey the Immortal is a WED one-act fairy-tale opera with a ravishing score. WED WED Nikolai Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov WED arr.

THU THU 12:00 Composer of the Week b00wlmv3 (Listen) THU Russian Opera, Episode 4 THU THU Donald Macleod continues his exploration of the rich THU tradition of Russian opera from Glinka to Schnittke with a THU musical conservative - Sergei Rachmaninov - and a pair of THU progressives - Igor Stravinsky and Sergei Prokofiev. One of THU only three operas completed by Rachmaninov, The Miserly THU Knight sets one of Pushkin's four Little Tragedies, in a THU tradition stretching back to Alexander Darghomïzhsky's The THU Stone Guest. Stravinsky's opera The Nightingale is an THU attractive but rather strange work. Stravinsky wrote the THU first act in 1909, then broke off to fulfil what turned out THU to be a trio of ballet commissions, for The Firebird, THU Petrushka and The Rite of Spring. When he returned to The THU Nightingale in 1914 - with the incentive of a fat commission THU fee from the Moscow Free Theatre - his style had undergone a THU radical transformation. It had changed again by 1922 when he THU started work on his next opera, Mavra, which stands at the THU beginning of his neo-classical phase. After a somewhat shaky THU start - the composer compared the critics at the New York THU première to a "pack of dogs let out from behind the gate to THU bite my trousers to shreds" - Prokofiev's The Love for Three THU Oranges has gone on to become one of his best-loved works, a THU delightfully absurd confection in which a hypochondriac THU prince finds the love of his life inside an enchanted orange THU - and why not.

FRI FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week b00wln0z (Listen) FRI Russian Opera, Episode 5 FRI FRI Donald Macleod concludes his exploration of a FRI century-and-a-half of Russian opera with works by FRI Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Schnittke. Shostakovich's first FRI opera, The Nose, is a tartly satirical piece based on a FRI short story by Gogol in which a St Petersburg bureaucrat FRI wakes up one morning to find his nose missing from his face; FRI it turns out that the plucky little organ has taken on a FRI life of its own, and is parading around town in the costume FRI of a State Councillor. Even if it wasn't quite clear FRI precisely who was being satirized, The Nose put the Soviet FRI authorities' noses severely out of joint, and the first FRI production was abruptly dropped after only 16 performances. FRI Shostakovich's next opera, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, was FRI first of all a huge success - then, in a deft spot of FRI Stalinist revisionism, an abject failure. The failure kicked FRI in when Stalin finally got round to attending a performance FRI of the opera, almost two years after its Leningrad première; FRI the great dictator didn't like what he was seeing and FRI hearing, and a now notorious denunciation of the composer FRI followed in the press: "Muddle instead of music!" Prokofiev FRI spent the last 11 years of his life working on his FRI magnificent operatic presentation of Tolstoy's War and FRI Peace, but by this point in his career the composer was FRI irretrievably out of favour with the authorities and several FRI of those 11 years were spent jumping through hoops to try FRI and create an 'acceptable' version of the score. There's FRI little doubt that Stalin would have found Alfred Schnittke's FRI Life with an Idiot, written in the dying days of the Soviet FRI Union, wholly unacceptable. The 'idiot' of the title is FRI Vova, a heavily satirized representation of Lenin, capable FRI of uttering just one sound: "Ekh!". FRI FRI 13:00 Afternoon on 3 b00wln13 (Listen) FRI Summer Festivals 2010, Episode 4 FRI FRI This week Afternoon on 3 celebrates the riches and diversity FRI of 2010's musical summer, with performances from leading FRI festivals in Europe and beyond, by some of the world's great FRI singers, instrumentalists and ensembles.

The Thursday Opera Matinee is Bellini's FRI Norma, conducted by Fabio Biondi with his period-instrument FRI ensemble Europa Galante at the Chopin and his Europe FRI Festival in Warsaw. Large choral works will be a particular FRI feature throughout the week - from Bach's B minor Mass FRI through Haydn's Creation and Beethoven's Missa solemnis to FRI Rachmaninov's Vespers and a celebration of Arvo Pärt's 75th FRI birthday in his native Estonia.
