SAT How will it compare with Jonathan Miller's classic SAT production which has held the stage at ENO for so many SAT years? SAT SAT And as a major celebration of the work of Thea Musgrave gets SAT under way at the Barbican in London, Tom meets the SAT Scottish-American composer, now in her eighties, and finds SAT out what drives her. SAT SAT RIGOLETTO AT ENO SAT SAT For the last thirty years English National Opera has SAT featured Jonathan Miller’s 1950’s Mafioso rendering of SAT Rigoletto in its repertoire. The company have now decided SAT it’s time for a new production and have turned to the SAT American director Christopher Alden to realise his vision of SAT Verdi’s masterpiece. Alden sets the entire action in the SAT gaming room of a nineteenth century gentleman’s club. Tom SAT Service is joined by the theatre critic Michael Billington SAT and the music critic Alexandra Coghlan to review ENO’s new SAT production and see if it’s a worthy successor to Miller’s SAT classic production. SAT SAT SIR NEVILLE AND ANDREW MARRINER SAT SAT Continuing our series exploring musical connections, father SAT and son – conductor Sir Neville and clarinettist Andrew SAT Marriner - come face to face to talk about their influence SAT on each other and the role music has played in their family SAT life. SAT SAT THEA MUSGRAVE SAT This weekend the SAT BBC Symphony Orchestra celebrates the 85th birthday of the SAT Scottish-American composer Thea Musgrave. Her expressive SAT music has been inspired by everything from Turner landscapes SAT to Scottish folk songs. She talks to Tom about the SAT importance of her collaborations with great performers and SAT how she’s still learning as a composer, even as she enters SAT the second half of her ninth decade. SAT More information: SAT Thea Musgrave SAT SAT INSTRUMENTS ON PLANES SAT A problem which has been facing musicians (professional and SAT amateur) for a long time now is the inconsistent policies SAT and practices of airlines when it comes to taking SAT instruments on planes - increased by tightened security SAT controls following the terrorist attacks of 9/11and 7/7. SAT Some players have paid for an extra seat so they can travel SAT with their instrument next to them in the cabin – only to be SAT told at check-in that the instrument must go in the hold. SAT Others have been advised that they can take their instrument SAT in the cabin with them – only if they remove them from their SAT cases and fly with them on their lap or under the seat – SAT completely invalidating their insurance policies. Tom talks SAT to musician Jakob Lindberg (the victim of a disastrous SAT flight with his theorbo) and John Smith, General Secretary SAT of The Musician’s Union as the news that the European SAT Parliament has agreed a regulation regarding travelling with SAT instruments for airlines to adhere to. This will now go in SAT front of the European Council for the final vote next month. SAT SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert b03th94m (Listen) SAT Wigmore Hall: Ehnes Quartet SAT SAT From Wigmore Hall, London. SAT SAT Ehnes Quartet SAT SAT Beethoven: String Quartet No 10 in E flat major, Op 74 SAT 'Harp' SAT Suk: Meditation on the old Bohemian hymn 'St Wenceslas', Op SAT 35a SAT Bartok: String Quartet No 3, Sz 85 SAT SAT Today's concert is part of the first European tour by the SAT quartet established in 2010 by top Canadian violinist James SAT Ehnes, with his colleagues Amy Schwartz Moretti (violin), SAT Richard O'Neill (viola) and Robert deMaine (cello). There's SAT a folk music influence in two twentieth-century pieces from SAT Eastern Europe, by Suk and Bartok. Beethoven's Op. 74 SAT quartet is believed to be a tribute to the man who truly SAT established the string quartet form, Joseph Haydn: Haydn SAT died not long before Beethoven created his work in 1809. Its SAT unusual - and, frankly, pointless - nickname derives from SAT the pizzicato passages in the opening movement. SAT SAT Presented by Louise Fryer.

SAT SAT A teenage couple, Zhuang and Niue, are prison-labourers in SAT this chicken factory, having been convicted for petty theft. SAT After nightfall, they meet in secret and read Dostoevsky's SAT Crime and Punishment together. Zhuang dreams about the SAT possibility of bringing about a new social order, while Niue SAT has quieter ambitions to become a mother and earn a living SAT from her talent for singing. SAT SAT When the Mainland is hit by a highly virulent strain of bird SAT flu, suspicion falls on chicken meat from the island's SAT processing plant. The chicken factory island and its workers SAT are put into enforced quarantine, surrounded by soldiers and SAT left to their fate. But Zhuang is determined that the SAT workers should be masters of their own destinies.

What SUN they had in common was they were the first to create thought SUN systems in which Man, not the Gods, was the measure of all SUN things. It was arguably civilization's greatest leap SUN forward. Yet, despite their teachings these thought systems SUN became faiths anyway. SUN SUN Why this coincidence? Were these thinkers in touch with one SUN another? How did these teachings become religions? SUN SUN In part two Michael Goldfarb goes on pilgrimage in India and SUN China to tell the story of how Buddhism and Confucianism, SUN two faiths without God, became religions. He talks to SUN scholars and monks about the human need for faith and how SUN even rationalism is becoming a kind of religion in the West.

What beliefs will we die for? Or kill for? It's SUN about telling the truth. SUN SUN "O God, you are my God, for you I long; SUN for you my soul is thirsting. My body pines for you SUN like a dry, weary land without water. SUN So I gaze on you in the sanctuary SUN to see your strength and your glory. SUN For your love is better than life."

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b03vd5ml (Listen) MON Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868), The Freshness of the Morning MON of Life MON MON It's difficult to imagine now that for an entire century, MON until halfway through the last one, Gioachino Rossini's MON operas virtually disappeared from the world's stages. In his MON own time, he was hugely popular and prolific; he was without MON doubt the most successful composer of the early 19th MON century, who gave the public what they wanted and made a MON fortune. Donald Macleod tells the story of Rossini's first MON compositions for the stage, works that Rossini's biographer MON Stendhal believed "breathed with the freshness of the MON morning of life.". MON MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert b03vd5mn (Listen) MON Wigmore Hall: Angela Hewitt MON MON Live from Wigmore Hall, London.

His pupil Beethoven goes MON even further in what was only his second sonata for the MON instrument that meant so much to him. Angela Hewitt closes MON her programme with Bach, without whose influence it's MON impossible to imagine Haydn or Beethoven writing for the MON keyboard, in a piece that tests both instrument and MON performer to the limit. MON MON 14:00 Afternoon on 3 b03vd5xm (Listen) MON BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Episode 1 MON MON This week Louise Fryer introduces music recorded recently by MON the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, including Polish MON repertoire for violin and orchestra from a forthcoming MON commercial release.

MON MON 18:30 Composer of the Week b03vd5ml (Listen) MON [Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today] MON MON 19:30 Opera on 3 b03vd5xr (Listen) MON Turnage's Greek MON MON Mark Anthony Turnage's Greek, in Michael McCarthy's MON award-winning production for Music Theatre Wales, from the MON Linbury Studio Theatre at the Royal Opera House, Covent MON Garden. MON MON First performed in 1988, Greek was Turnage's first opera and MON it confirmed him as a major voice on the British MON contemporary music scene. With Turnage's typically muscular MON fusion of classical and jazz influences, and a hard-hitting MON libretto adapted from Steven Berkoff's verse play of the MON same name, the opera is a version of the Oedipus story, MON relocated to the East End of London. Oedipus, the tragic MON hero who kills his father and marries his mother, becomes MON Eddy (Marcus Farnsworth), a young man who tries to escape MON his fate. MON MON It's presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch, who talks to MON Mark-Anthony Turnage in between the two acts. MON MON Eddy.....Marcus Farnsworth (Baritone) MON MON The remaining characters are shared between the company as MON follows: MON Eddy's Mum/Waitress/Sphinx.....Sally Silver (Soprano) MON Eddy's Sister/Waitress who becomes Eddy's MON Wife/Sphinx.....Louise Winter (Mezzo-soprano) MON Eddy's Dad/Cafe Manager/Chief of Police...Gwion Thomas MON (Baritone) MON MON The Music Theatre Wales Ensemble MON Michael Rafferty (conductor). MON MON 22:00 Free Thinking b03wyp2r (Listen) MON Stuart Hall MON MON To mark the death of cultural historian Stuart Hall, BBC MON Radio 3 is broadcasting his extended conversation with MON Philip Dodd which was first broadcast in December 2004. MON MON Obituaries for Stuart Hall last week called him the MON "god-father of multi-culturalism" and some credited him with MON coining the term "Thatcherism" in the critiques he wrote. MON MON In the interview he discusses the influence of his MON upbringing in Jamaica, his view of progress and capitalism MON and the relationship between past and present. We also hear MON from literary theorist Professor Terry Eagleton, Barbadian MON novelist George Lamming, Professor Michael Rustin - who MON edited Soundings Magazine with Stuart Hall. MON "He always seemed to be at the political cutting edge of MON things...[he] revivified the left" Terry Eagleton on Stuart MON Hall MON MON 22:45 The Essay b03vd5xt (Listen) MON The Islamic Golden Age, Lubna of Cordoba MON MON Radio 3's twenty part series about the Islamic Golden age MON concludes this evening with award winning writer, Kamila MON Shamsie. Throughout the series we've heard about some of the MON great thinkers, philosophers and achievements during this MON five hundred year period. In tonight's concluding essay, MON Kamila looks at the life of the Lubna of Codoba. She leaves MON traces in fragments of records - one says she was the royal MON library acquisitions expert - another suggests she was MON privated secretary to Al-Hakam II. What's not in doubt is MON that she had a fine and piercing intellect and moved in some MON of the most interesting circles of the day. MON Producer: Sarah Taylor. MON MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 b03vd5yc (Listen) MON Adventures in Sound at the 2013 London Jazz Festival MON MON Jez Nelson presents highlights from Adventures In Sound, an MON afternoon of improvisation at the 2013 London Jazz Festival MON curated by Jazz on 3. MON MON Featured sets include the bass-led Luc Ex Trio, where MON heavily improvised pieces build through the saxophone MON dialogues of Ab Baars and Ingrid Laubrock, while Ex's MON acoustic bass guitar growls and prompts emerging themes. MON British guitarist Anton Hunter and his trio touch on a very MON different landscape, with a beautiful set of slow-burning MON melodicism. The spirit of Adventures of Sound - mixing up MON the bands into spontaneous ensembles - comes to the fore in MON a group featuring American drummer Jeff Williams and MON electronics whiz Leafcutter John, alongside Ex and Laubrock.

He TUE was a practical man of the theatre, and where he thought an TUE audience wouldn't have heard something before, he had no TUE sense of shame about bringing it into play in a different TUE context. This self-plagiarism was partly due to the sheer TUE number of commissions he took on and the speed with which he TUE turned them around. He once remarked: "The time and money TUE allowed me for composing were so small that I scarcely had TUE time to read the libretti I had to set." In this programme TUE Donald Macleod focuses on the operas that first made Rossini TUE world famous, including Tancredi and Elizabetta Regina TUE d'Inghilterra.

Overtures THU were habitually produced at the last minute, testing the THU nerves of theatre impresarios as the first night loomed. THU According to legend, one Neapolitan impresario resorted to THU desperate measures, locking Rossini up in an attic with a THU plate of macaroni, with four burly stagehands standing guard THU and ready to run with the music, as it emerged, sheet by THU sheet, to the copyists. Donald Macleod focuses on Rossini's THU later operas, including William Tell, his final opera before THU his "great renunciation".

THU THU 8.55 THU Mozart: Symphony no. 40 THU THU Alban Gerhardt (cello) THU BBC National Orchestra of Wales THU Thomas Sondergard (Principal Conductor) THU THU Mozart was at the peak of his creativity when he composed THU his tragic Fortieth Symphony, despite the poverty he faced THU and the recent death of his youngest child. Principal THU Conductor Thomas Sondergard returns to Cheltenham to conduct THU this great symphony and the Divertimento for strings by THU Bartok. Written on the eve of World War Two, immediately THU before the composer left his native Hungary for the United THU States, the Divertimento reveals Bartok at the height of his THU maturity. The two outer movements bustle with sunny THU optimism, in stark contrast to the funereal middle movement, THU reflecting the turmoil in Europe at the time. THU THU Alban Gerhard is one of Germany's oustanding cellists, now THU at the top of his game, whose performances combine an THU intensely emotional response with an arresting stage THU presence.

He THU reflects on what it's like trying to wrestle with it: THU "granite is stuff personified, quintessentially dumb matter, THU it is what the earth is made of, congealed magma, planetary THU and galactic, inert and unintelligible." THU THU Peter's is the third of four essays in which writers and THU artists reflect on the way their bedrock geology - their THU cornerstones - have shaped their favourite landscapes. Peter THU Randall-Page realises that he's worked his way back through THU geological time to work with granite: "beginning with the THU relatively young sedimentary limestone of Bath, through the THU metamorphic marble of Carrara to the most ancient material THU of granite." THU THU In the other essays, Sue Clifford, co-founder of Common THU Ground reflects on her favourite limestone landscapes, the THU walker and geologist Ronald Turnbull addresses sandstone and THU the Welsh poet Gillian Clarke addresses the human dimension THU of mining Snowdonia's slate.

He was still only 37, but we can hardly grudge him his FRI early retirement: he'd completed 39 operas in 20 years. Many FRI attempts were made to try to lure the great man back to the FRI operatic stage, but he never became actively involved in any FRI of the projects dangled before him. His musical energies FRI would become centred on his famous Saturday soirees at his FRI apartment after he'd settled permanently in Paris in 1857. FRI Donald Macleod focuses on these years of retirement, FRI including Rossini's final masterpiece, the Petite Messe FRI Solennelle.

FRI FRI 22:45 The Essay b03vd7w3 (Listen) FRI Cornerstones, Slate FRI FRI "Slate is our stone, from the quarries of Snowdonia", writes FRI the Welsh poet Gillian Clarke in her Cornerstones essay, FRI "just as the coal in the grate is ours, from the south Wales FRI coalfield. We tread on slate every day." For her slate was FRI inescapable, ubiquitous: "In city, town, village and upland FRI farm, we sleep under Welsh slate. Rain sings on it. It FRI roofed every house I have ever lived in." FRI FRI Gillian's is the fourth and last of these essays in which FRI writers and artists reflect on the way their bedrock geology FRI - their cornerstones - have shaped their favourite FRI landscapes. "To this day" she says, "the sight of slate-tips FRI in rain never fails to fill me with awe, such an unbearable FRI weight of angles and shards, of greys, purples, silvers, FRI broken pieces of sky, so many deaths, so much lost life. So FRI much geological and human history." FRI FRI In the other essays, Sue Clifford, co-founder of Common FRI Ground reflects on her favourite limestone landscapes, the FRI walker and geologist Ronald Turnbull addresses sandstone, FRI and the sculptor Peter Randall-Page tells us what it's like FRI working with something as unforgiving as Dartmoor's obdurate FRI granite boulders. FRI FRI Producer: Mark Smalley. FRI FRI 23:00 World on 3 b03vd8qs (Listen) FRI With Mary Ann Kennedy. Commonwealth Connections 4 and a FRI session with Eduardo Niebla FRI FRI Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, a studio FRI session with jazz flamenco guitarist Eduardo Niebla, and FRI part 4 of 'Commonwealth Connections' with music from FRI Barbados and Mauritius. FRI FRI Eduardo Niebla was born in Tangiers in Morocco, and at a FRI young age he fled with his family as a refugee to Spain. He FRI played in a rock band before moving to flamenco and jazz, FRI composing his own pieces and performing in festivals around FRI the world. FRI FRI Commonwealth Connections is a landmark 26-part weekly series FRI leading up to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July. FRI Featuring musicians and musical events from each of the 53 FRI member states from Antigua to Zambia, the series reflects FRI the Commonwealth's vibrant sounds, as the countries come FRI together for their festival of sport. FRI FRI Commonwealth Connections music feature: FRI FRI The music of Barbados is a curious hybrid of British culture FRI and African rhythms dating back to plantation days, and FRI their strong Calypso song is an aural newspaper of modern FRI life on the Island. Wayne 'Poonka' Willocks explains the FRI tradition of his three man Tuk band of bass drum, snare drum FRI and penny whistle and its connection to Scottish marching FRI bands. Nine-times Calypso Monarch winner, Dr Anthony Carter, FRI better known as The Mighty Gabby, sings of a more FRI contemporary Barbados with his spontaneous and witty songs FRI which tell stories about Bajan life. The songs range widely FRI across hot topics in Bajan culture from the life of FRI fishermen, a protest about sending Bajan troops to war, and FRI of course the Bajan passion for Cricket, told with a twinkle FRI and a more than a hint of sexual double-entendre. FRI FRI Commonwealth Connections heritage track: FRI FRI Christianne Legentil did Mauritius proud by reaching the FRI quarter finals of the 52 kg women's Judo category at the FRI London Olympics, despite coming from an island just 18 FRI kilometres long in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Rodrigues FRI Island lies five hundred kilometres east of the main island FRI of Mauritius, and the Republic of Mauritius is an unusual FRI Commonwealth Country because it is largely French speaking. FRI Christine has chosen some seggae music, a fusion of the FRI local sega music and reggae with an old favourite "Li FRI Tourner" by Alain Ramanisum which has recently been given a FRI new lease of life by local DJs. FRI Producer Roger Short. FRI
