His career is a mess, his SAT relationship is falling apart and despite, or perhaps SAT because of this, he seems intent on eating himself into an SAT early grave. The Voice in his head has warned him, clearly, SAT and a nightmarish tour of his inner organs has left him in SAT no doubt that he is headed for, at best, a coronary arrest; SAT at worst, something that he can't bear to think about it. SAT SAT And yet he persists. Drowning in despair he grasps at crumbs SAT of comfort, ingesting enough food to support a small country SAT and doubling his waist and his weight in just one month, SAT terrifying his wife and his work colleagues and rendering SAT the average doorway inadequate for his desperate attempts at SAT escape. SAT SAT The Writer: SAT A writer, director and actor, Tim Loane's screenwriting SAT credits include the comedy films 'Out of The Deep Pan' SAT (BBC), 'Reversals' (ITV) and he was creator and lead writer SAT of the Bafta-nominated 'Teachers' for Channel 4.

SUN NAXOS 8572113 SUN SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature b03ln9mg (Listen) SUN Ideas of Germany SUN SUN Germany is Europe's pre-eminent and unrivalled power, its SUN largest economy and the Continent's most potent political SUN force. These political facts are clear, but culturally SUN things are more confused. SUN SUN More than twenty years after German unity in 1990, defining SUN how the country sees itself and understanding what it is to SUN be German today are far harder to pin down than the facts of SUN its economic success and predominance in the European Union. SUN So what are the reasons for this paradox? And how should we SUN in Britain, profoundly affected by Germany and the country's SUN ideas of itself, understand the nation today? SUN SUN Anne McElvoy closely observed the old communist East Germany SUN at first hand in the 1980s when she studied at East Berlin's SUN Humboldt University, with its Stasi teaching corps and SUN 7.00am lectures in Marxist-Leninism. In the 1990s, when she SUN covered Germany as a Berlin correspondent, she followed and SUN wrote about the evolution of the new Germany formed from two SUN very different antecedent countries. SUN SUN Now, in this Sunday Feature, Anne McElvoy re-visits Berlin SUN to gauge for herself what ideas of Germany are emerging. She SUN talks to eminent writers, artists and figures in the SUN performing arts as well as those who observe the broader SUN cultural and political scene to see how those active in SUN Germany's cultural world see their homeland. She reveals SUN what this tells us about how contemporary Germans see their SUN history, their present and their future. SUN SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert b03lph2h (Listen) SUN Elizabeth Watts, Clara Mouriz, Roderick Williams - Marx, SUN Wolf SUN SUN An Italian Songbook: songs by Joseph Marx and Hugo Wolf from SUN soprano Elizabeth Watts, mezzo Clara Mouriz and baritone SUN Roderick Wiliams, curated by pianist Simon Lepper SUN SUN Live from Wigmore Hall, London SUN Presented by Petroc Trelawny SUN SUN Using songs by Joseph Marx and excerpts from Wolf's Italian SUN Songbook, pianist Simon Lepper has woven together a SUN narrative about the expectations and disappointments of SUN love: how some people need to be in love, some need to be SUN loved, and some simply can't confine their love to one SUN person SUN SUN Marx: Die Begegnung; Nimm dir ein schones Weib; Wofür; Am SUN fenster; Abends; Ständchen SUN Wolf: Mein liebste ist so klein; Mein liebster hat zu Tische SUN mich geladen; Ich esse nur mein Brod nicht trocken mehr; SUN Gesegnet sei das Grün SUN Marx: Die Lilie SUN Wolf: Wohl kenn' ich euren Stand; O wär dein haus SUN Marx: Wie reizend bist du SUN Wolf: Wie lange schon war immer mein verlangen; Ihr seid die SUN Allerschönste; Und willst du deinen Liebsten sterben; Du SUN denkst mit einem Fädchen; Wenn du mich mit den Augen SUN streifst und lachst SUN Marx: Der Dichter SUN SUN Interval SUN SUN Wolf: Ein Ständchen euch zu bringen; Was fur ein Lied soll SUN dir gesungen werden; Heb auf dein blondes Haupt; Mein SUN Liebster singt am haus SUN Marx: Venetianisches Wiegenlied SUN Wolf: Schweig einmal still; Was soll der Zorn SUN Marx: Liebe; Es zürnt das Meer SUN Wolf: Verschling der Abgrund; Nun lass uns Frieden SUN schliessen; Nein, junger Herr; Hoffahrtig seid Ihr, schönes SUN Kind; Du sagst mir, das ich kein Fürstin sei; Wer rief dich SUN denn?; Ich hab' in Penna; Lass sie nur gehn; Wie viele Zeit SUN verlor ich, dich zu lieben SUN Marx: Die Verlassene. SUN SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 b03lnb4y (Listen) SUN Ghosts SUN SUN Henrik Ibsen's provocative tale of family secrets and lies, SUN in a new version adapted and directed by Richard Eyre and SUN featuring the cast of his recent production for the Almeida SUN Theatre. SUN SUN Helene Alving, a widow, is delighted that her son has SUN returned home to Norway from his artist's life in Paris. The SUN orphanage founded in her husband's name is about to open SUN with the blessing of the local pastor, but there are family SUN secrets and ghosts of the past beneath the surface of her SUN ordered life which are about to come out to devastating SUN effect. SUN SUN First staged in 1883, Ibsen's play shocked audiences with SUN its themes of illegitimacy, inherited syphilis, religion and SUN feminism and in Richard Eyre's fast-moving adaptation it SUN retains its original power and energy. This production was SUN first directed by Eyre for the Almeida Theatre in London and SUN opened in September 2013 to great acclaim.

As the programme reached its 70th birthday this MON year, Donald Macleod challenged listeners to come up with a MON composer who had never appeared on the programme before. MON Over four-and-a-half-thousand suggestions were sent in, MON including figures from all kinds of historical periods and MON musical genres. This special anniversary week of programmes MON explores just one of those names: a composer whose story MON seems particularly intriguing. Her music was much celebrated MON in her lifetime, indeed it remains as beguiling today as it MON was to her audiences in 19th century Paris. Listeners may MON wonder how the name of Louise Farrenc became so lost to MON history. MON MON Louise Farrenc may not be a household name in the MON twenty-first century but in her own lifetime she enjoyed a MON career of international standing; her music was played MON across Europe. She was twice recognised by the French MON Institute for her outstanding contribution to chamber music MON and she was also an accomplished pianist who received MON favourable reviews for her public performances. For thirty MON years she was a valued teacher at the Paris Conservatoire MON and, in the latter part of her life, she devoted the MON majority of her time to the preparation of a groundbreaking MON anthology of keyboard music, dating from the 16th to the MON 19th century. MON MON Farrenc was born in 1804, a year before Fanny Hensel, Felix MON Mendelssohn's older sister. However, the fifty plus MON published works that make up her legacy, immediately set her MON apart. While the majority of her contemporaries had a MON tendency to focus on smaller forms, songs, choral works and MON salon pieces for the piano, Farrenc's creative interests MON involved writing music for much larger combinations of MON instruments, including quintets, a sextet, a nonet, MON orchestral overtures and three symphonies. MON MON Donald Macleod begins his survey by examining the context of MON Louise Farrenc's life. Paris born, she remained in the MON capital, a centre of musical excellence, her whole life. We MON get an idea of her keyboard skills in a concert waltz, while MON her abilities as a composer for multiple combinations of MON instruments are admirably displayed in an excerpt from her MON first symphony and a piano quintet.

Josef Suk's MON soulful meditation is based on a tune celebrating a saint MON who - today - is indelibly associated with Christmas MON festivities, but here is heard in his guise as a patriotic MON emblem of Czech nationalism.

MON MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 b03lncyt (Listen) MON Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, Stan Tracey Interview MON MON The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra and pianist Marilyn MON Crispell perform a new piece commissioned by BBC Radio 3. MON MON The 20-strong Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra, or GIO for MON short, has a track record of performing exciting new MON commissions: in past years they've worked with American MON avant-garde composer Jim O'Rourke and Britain's own Barry MON Guy. This new piece is by GIO founding member and MON saxophonist Raymond MacDonald. Exploring the borderland MON between improvisation and composition, the piece plays to MON the talents of the orchestra itself - jazz, folk, free MON improvisation, experimental, performance art - and those of MON one of the world's most respected improvising pianists, MON Marilyn Crispell. "Hearing her play solo piano?is like MON monitoring an active volcano", according to the New York MON Times. MON MON The composition is designed to mine the fertile imaginations MON of the ensemble: fragments of jazz standards, loops, graphic MON notation and extended conduction will all have their place. MON Expect the unexpected! MON MON We begin the programme with an interview from the Jazz on 3 MON archive with pianist and composer Stan Tracey, who died MON earlier this month at the age of 86. Often referred to as MON the 'godfather of British jazz', through his long and varied MON career Tracey helped forge a distinctively British jazz MON sound. He released his latest acclaimed recording just a few MON months ago. In this interview, recorded in 2006, Tracey MON discusses a less well-known aspect of his musical output - MON his explorations of free improvisation. We'll also hear from MON two of his collaborators: reeds player John Surman and MON pianist Keith Tippett. MON MON Producers: Peggy Sutton and Chris Elcombe.

Louise struck up a friendship with WED Hummel who was happy to offer her advice on her keyboard WED technique. It was at a chamber music soirée in 1850 at the WED salon of the piano maker, Erard that Louise Farrenc's WED masterly nonet was heard for the first time, clearly WED demonstrating not only the influence of Beethoven and WED Mendelssohn but also the originality of her own voice.

THU THU Katie Derham rounds off Radio 3's Verdi bicentenary THU celebrations with this spectacular grand opera. THU War rages between Egypt and Ethiopia. Aida, the Ethiopian THU King's daughter has been captured. She is now a slave in the THU service of the Pharoah's daughter, Amneris. Radames loves THU Aida but is loved by Amneris. He is appointed general of the THU Egyptian army and in a spectaular scene in the second act he THU returns in triumph, to be rewarded by the unwelcome hand of THU Amneris in marriage. Aida's father, Amonasro, has been taken THU prisoner, his life spared thanks to Radames. In the third THU act Amonasro persuades his daughter to help him discover the THU plans of the Egyptian army, which she does in a meeting with THU Radames. Aida and Amonasro take flight but the apparent THU treachery of Radames is now revealed and he is condemned to THU death, to the dismay of Amneris. In the final scene he is THU immured in a stone tomb, where he is joined by Aida. As they THU die, Amneris, above the tomb, prays for peace for her THU beloved Radames. THU THU Verdi wrote Aida for the lavish inauguration in 1871 of the THU Cairo Opera House and with its famous Grand March the work THU now transcends its operatic origins. It's heard here in a THU performance recorded in 2002 at the Théâtre de la Monnaie, THU Brussels conducted by Antonio Pappano. THU THU Aida, daughter of the King of Ethiopia, now a slave .....

The piece re-tells the Biblical prophecies of FRI Christ's coming, birth, death and resurrection, depicted FRI with such power, passion and expressive warmth that Handel's FRI music never fails to stir and move. "He is the master of us FRI all" said Josef Haydn, on first hearing the Hallelujah FRI Chorus, and listeners since can only agree. FRI FRI Tonight's performance brings together a brilliant team of FRI soloists, a leading period-instrument orchestra and the BBC FRI Singers for a rare complete performance of the work - uncut, FRI and presented just as Handel wrote it.

The digital FRI world transforms the way information can be appreciated, FRI doing great things for the the sighted as well as the blind FRI - breaking down barriers to absorbing, manipulating, and FRI transmitting culture. But access can be denied by FRI considerations of politics and trade, rooted in the history FRI of copyright. Visually impaired people sometimes end up as FRI collateral damage in the war on digital piracy. Rupert FRI Goodwins looks into how the future could be brighter for FRI blindness.
