Toru Takemitsu's beguiling combination of Japanese SAT traditional instruments and a sound-world inspired by SAT Western composers, at once modernist, lush and refined, won SAT him international recognition. November Steps from 1967 was SAT the breakthrough work which set Takemitsu on an aesthetic SAT path he rarely left over the remaining three decades of his SAT life. SAT SAT In conversation with Ilan Volkov, Ivan Hewett explores not SAT only this more familiar side of Takemitsu but also an SAT earlier aspect with the rarely performed 'Corona II'. The SAT 1962 graphic score has complicated instructions for the SAT players, including the positioning of transparent plastic SAT red, yellow and blue squares on concentric circles. SAT Takemitsu is also put in the context of fellow Japanese SAT composers: his near contemporary Toshi Ichiyanagi (once SAT married to Yoko Ono) and, still in her forties, Keiko SAT Harada.

In the 1950s, he SUN founded a ground-breaking magazine which was the first to SUN publish new work by Samuel Becket and William Burroughs, SUN including passages from Naked Lunch which had been banned SUN for obscenity in America. At 78 he's still performing his SUN poems in pubs, and still playing his 'anglosaxophone', a SUN kind of exuberant kazoo. SUN SUN In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Horovitz talks about SUN the poetic revolution that began in the 50s, and about his SUN friendship with Stan Tracey, who died recently. He tells the SUN story of how his family were forced to flee Nazi Germany in SUN the 1930s, where his father was a lawyer. SUN SUN His music choices include Beethoven, Mendelsohn and Stan SUN Tracey, as well as a rare Charlie Parker jazz improvisation SUN from 1945 (which includes one of the few recordings of SUN Charlie Parker's voice). He includes too a moving recording SUN of his wife, the poet Frances Horovitz, reading a poem she SUN wrote when she was dying, and a recent 'jazz poem' of his SUN own, where Horovitz plays alongside Damon Albarn and Paul SUN Weller.

SUN SUN 14:00 The Early Music Show b00cly7x (Listen) SUN Purcell's Schooldays SUN SUN The birth of Henry Purcell coincided with a hugely turbulent SUN time in English political history, and went almost SUN completely unnoticed. There are no baptismal records and SUN we're not absolutely sure who his parents were, although SUN it's likely that he was born in a house just a few hundred SUN yards from Westminster Abbey, the place were he would SUN eventually make much of his career and reputation. During SUN his early years, the young Purcell came under the influence SUN of several composers and church musicians, who were to shape SUN his musical future. Lucie Skeaping traces the schoolboy SUN years of the man who would grow to be England's greatest SUN composer.

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 one, Michael Goldfarb travels from the Aegean, to SUN India and China interviewing archaeologists and scholars SUN about the real lives, not the legends, of Buddha, Confucius, SUN Thales and Pythagoras and the societies these SUN epoch-shattering thinkers emerged from. He asks whether they SUN might have been sharing ideas across the Asian landmass.

SUN SUN 22:00 Drama on 3 b03th7fk (Listen) SUN Head Hunters SUN SUN By Michael Eaton. In the early years of the twentieth SUN century, the man generally credited with being the founding SUN father of the new science of anthropology was James George SUN Frazer, author of 'The Golden Bough'. Whereas Frazer rarely SUN left his Cambridge study, it was Alfred Cort Haddon who led SUN the first anthropological field-work expeditions, and in SUN 1898 Haddon became the first anthropologist to film a SUN re-enactment of an initiation rite on Mer, an island in the SUN Torres Strait. Nearly twenty years later he signed up to SUN work as a YMCA volunteer just a few miles from the trenches SUN on the Western Front, and it was there that he re-met one of SUN the members of his Mer team, now working on a study of the SUN psychological impact of modern warfare on soldiers - 'shell SUN shock'. SUN SUN Michael Eaton SUN SUN Writer and director Michael Eaton studied anthropology at SUN Cambridge and in 2010 made a film 'The Masks of Mer' about SUN the unique film shot in the Torres Straits by Alfred Haddon SUN in 1898 lasting for less than a minute and the world's first SUN example of anthropological cinema. 'The Masks of Mer' tells SUN the extraordinary story of this experiment and traces the SUN masks worn in the sacred initiation ceremony Haddon filmed. SUN As a writer he is best known for his investigatory dramas SUN for television, which include 'Shipman' and 'Shoot to Kill'.

MON MON Gustav Mahler rose from humble beginnings on the fringes of MON the Austro-Hungarian Empire to become one of the most MON powerful figures in the musical establishment. Nowadays his MON symphonies are almost guaranteed to fill concert halls, but MON during his lifetime Mahler made his name as a conductor. MON MON Mahler's early years were spent in rural Bohemia, and the MON sounds and songs of the countryside were to have a lasting MON influence on his music. His early songs are inspired by MON teenage sweethearts, while a prizewinning piece of chamber MON music composed at the Vienna Conservatoire shows the MON influence of Brahms, Schubert and Wagner. Mahler's MON passionate affair with a married woman brought on a creative MON torrent that led to the completion of his first symphony.

There's MON a folk music influence in two twentieth-century pieces from MON Eastern Europe, by Suk and Bartok. Beethoven's Op. 74 MON quartet is believed to be a tribute to the man who truly MON established the string quartet form, Joseph Haydn: Haydn MON died not long before Beethoven created his work in 1809. Its MON unusual - and, frankly, pointless - nickname derives from MON the pizzicato passages in the opening movement. MON MON Presented by Louise Fryer.

In WED this evening's essay, Dr. Amira Bennison examines the WED creation of two great cities of learning - Baghdad and WED Cairo. WED WED The medieval Middle East is the stuff of fantasy, from the WED windswept deserts of Arabia to the bustling bazaars of WED cities like Baghdad and Cairo. But what were these cities WED actually like? And what part did they play in creating great WED men (and sometimes women) of letters, science and art? WED Cities figured in the Muslim imagination as hubs of WED religion, government, commerce and culture. Medieval Muslim WED geographers often conceptualised their world as one of WED routes linking an endless series of towns and cities like WED stars glittering in the firmament. Although some of these WED cities like Jerusalem or Damascus were already ancient when WED the Muslims arrived in the 7th century, others, Baghdad and WED Cairo included, were new Muslim creations - brash, vibrant WED and dense with talent, the New Yorks of their age.

THU Set in the fifteenth century, the mixture of magic and THU medieval chivalry, Sullivan's hoped to create a work halfway THU between the romantic flights of his grand opera Ivanhoe and THU the wit of his earlier Savoy operas. Sullivan's lengthy THU grand-operatic musical numbers and his serious exploration THU proved too much for his Savoy audiences used to the ready THU wit of the Gibert and Sullivan operas and the work closed THU after just fifty performances. But the Beauty Stone contains THU some of Arthur Sullivan's finest music as his characters THU react to the beauty stone with a mixture of yearning, THU despair and love. THU The opera is set in the Flemish town of Mirlemont at the THU beginning of the 15th century and the plot is one part THU Faustian saga, one part Brothers Grimm fairy tale. A young THU girl, Liane, has a beautiful soul, but is not pretty, and THU dreams of marrying a Prince. The Devil gives her the Beauty THU Stone, which is passed around the whole cast, with many THU confusions resulting. There is a beauty contest, and the THU prince realises the beauty of Liane's soul and marries her. THU Presented by Penny Gore. THU THU Philip, Lord of Mirlemont .....

In the first half: Stravinsky's THU "Chant Du Rossignol" or "Song of the Nightingale", in which THU the bird flies and dances high, but is then replaced by a THU mechanical bird which brings illness. However, the real THU nightingale then returns and brings salvation from death THU before finally returning to nature. THU Schubert's 8th Symphony - one of the first romantic THU symphonies, wanders off with Schubert's imagination and THU remains an unfinished work to this day. THU In the second half, the BBC SSO is joined by the great THU French viola virtuoso Antoine Tamestit, to perform Berlioz's THU masterpiece "Harold in Italy". Commissioned as a piece to THU show off Paganini's new Stradivarius viola, it is inspired THU by Lord Byron's poem, 'Childe Harold's Pilgrimage' THU describing the travels and reflections of a world-weary THU young man who looks for distraction in foreign lands. The THU piece perhaps mirrors Berlioz's own wanderings in Italy THU which he clearly loved. THU THU Live from the City Halls, Glasgow THU Presented by Jamie MacDougall.

I have THU seen no other ruler for whose death the people mourned, for THU he was loved by good and bad, Muslim and unbeliever alike.' THU 'Abd al-Latif, 1193 THU THU Historian Jonathan Phillips reassesses the influence of THU twelfth-century hero Saladin - a man whose legacy has been THU admired and appropriated by an extraordinary range of people THU through the ages. THU THU In the past three years he's been the subject of a ballet in THU Damascus, a musical in Lebanon and he's seen in a children's THU cartoon (on al-Jazeera TV) where his morality and good THU character are used as an exemplar for young people to THU emulate. THU THU Given his role in defeating and removing Western invaders, THU his legacy has immense symbolism in the Middle East. Arab THU Nationalist leaders such as Nasser of Egypt, Saddam Hussein, THU and the Asad dynasty in Syria have all embraced his THU achievement. Yet he appeals to Islamists too: Osama bin THU Laden praised Saladin's wisdom and his use of the jihad to THU succeed in defeating the West; to the head of the CIA unit THU hunting bin Laden, his opponent's personal piety, generosity THU and sharing of hardships with his men meant, quote, 'he is THU an Islamic hero, as the faith's ideal type, and almost as a THU modern-day Saladin'. THU THU Jonathan questions why Saladin has maintained such an THU incredibly broad appeal down the centuries. THU THU Producer: Mohini Patel.

FRI FRI Gustav Mahler rose from humble beginnings on the fringes of FRI the Austro-Hungarian Empire to become one of the most FRI powerful figures in the musical establishment. Nowadays his FRI symphonies are almost guaranteed to fill concert halls, but FRI during his lifetime Mahler made his name as a conductor. FRI FRI Mahler left the Vienna Court Opera to take up a lucrative FRI position at the Metropolitan Opera, and later another at the FRI New York Philharmonic. He would spend his final years FRI travelling back and forth across the Atlantic and working on FRI his most ambitious symphonies. A moment of personal crisis FRI would colour the composition of his last work.

Hosokawa writes about the piece: "I once had a dream FRI that I was in my mother's womb. In the dream, I experienced FRI these things: the joy of being in the warm womb, pressure FRI and obsession that I must be born before long, and the joy FRI of coming into the world through the suffering and pain of FRI the process of birth. These are deep experiences that will FRI stay in my mind for all time and which I have tried to FRI recreate in music. FRI In this work there are many influences from the musical FRI language of Gagaku, the ancient Japanese court music that is FRI the womb of my music."

FRI FRI We continue Commonwealth Connections, a landmark 26-part FRI weekly series leading up to the Commonwealth Games in FRI Glasgow in July. Featuring musicians and musical events from FRI each and every of the 53 member states from Antigua to FRI Zambia, the series reflects the Commonwealth's vibrant FRI sounds, as the countries come together for their festival of FRI sport. In this programme, music from South Africa and the FRI Bahamas. FRI FRI Music Feature: Every Sunday morning, townships across South FRI Africa vibrate to the sound and colour of traditional gospel FRI services. The Holy Ethiopian Catholic Church of Zion gather FRI in Soweto to sing songs which blend ancient Zulu melodies FRI and free-flowing phrases with missionary-style harmonies FRI which they say bring them closer to God. A very different FRI kind of township style is found in the music of Madosini, a FRI mouth-bow player and singer living in Cape Town. Now 92 FRI years old, and still performing professionally, she sings FRI stories of life in pre-apartheid rural South Africa, with FRI dramatic overtone-singing and expressive mouth-bow effects. FRI FRI Plus a heritage track from the Bahamas: FRI Bahamian 400m sprinter and Olympic medallist, Chris Brown FRI talks about junkanoo, the music of the annual street parades FRI that resonates with all Bahamians. This music, deeply rooted FRI in the islands' historic ties to Africa, brings back FRI memories for Chris of winning a drumming competition as a FRI child and becoming the lead drummer on his island; of crowds FRI dancing in the streets underneath giant figures of people FRI and animals; and of fires springing up across the islands, FRI lit to warm the drums so that they make the perfect sound. FRI Chris explains how the rhythms of junkanoo are still with FRI him today at international competitions inspiring him to FRI achieve the very best. FRI
