SAT Petroc visits The Sixth Form College, Farnborough where 350 SAT of the 3000 students are studying A level Music or Music SAT Technology and also discusses the connection between SAT politicians and the arts with the journalist and broadcaster SAT Anne McElvoy and Michael Brunson, the former Political SAT Editor of ITN. SAT SAT OLLI MUSTONEN SAT SAT Olli Mustonen has a unique place in today’s music scene. SAT Following the tradition of great masters such as SAT Rachmaninov, Busoni and Enescu, Mustonen combines the roles SAT of composer, pianist and conductor in an equal balance. Born SAT in Helsinki, Mustonen began his studies in piano, SAT harpsichord and composition at the age of five. Petroc SAT Trelawny caught up with Mustonen earlier this week, when he SAT was in Tallinn rehearsing the Estonian National Symphony SAT Orchestra in his composition The Old Church at Petäjävesi. SAT Petroc asked him about the connection with his Finnish SAT heritage, and the inspiration he draws from Russian artists SAT - from the late pianist Emil Gilels to composer Rodion SAT Shchedrin. SAT SAT CONSTANT LAMBERT SAT SAT As a composer Constant Lambert is probably best remembered SAT for The Rio Grande but little else, and for a man who SAT devoted the greater part of his life to the establishment of SAT British ballet his work is largely unrecognised today. The SAT economist John Maynard Keynes thought Lambert was SAT potentially the most brilliant man he ever met and for Dame SAT Nanette De Valois, who established The Royal Ballet, he was SAT the greatest ballet conductor and advisor this country has SAT ever had. He also had a career as a music critic and SAT broadcaster in the early days of the BBC’s Third Programme. SAT Petroc talks to Stephen Lloyd the author of Constant Lambert SAT – Beyond The Rio Grande and reviews the new book with the SAT pianist David Owen-Norris and dance critic Zoe Anderson. SAT SAT MUSIC EDUCATION SAT SAT Petroc visits the Sixth Form College in Farnborough in SAT Hampshire, where around 350 of the college’s 3000 students SAT are taking A-Levels in Music or Music Technology, and a SAT further 150 students are involved in active music making, SAT from a recent double-bill of Puccini operas to jazz and SAT popular music. Against the backdrop of a Government SAT consultation about the levels of funding for music education SAT through the Education Services Grant, Petroc talks to the SAT college’s principal Simon Jarvis, to its Director of Music SAT Paul Bambrough and to some of the department’s students – SAT and discovers an ambitious and thriving musical community. SAT SAT POLITICIANS AND THE ARTS SAT SAT Sir Edward Heath learnt music at Chatham & Clarendon Grammar SAT School in Kent before going on to be an organ scholar at SAT Oxford. He considered a full time career as a professional SAT musician before politics took over but he remained a great SAT advocate for music throughout his life, conducting SAT orchestras such as the London Symphony Orchestra and Royal SAT Liverpool Philharmonic and co-founding the European Union SAT Youth Orchestra. SAT SAT Edward Heath’s former home, in the shadow of Salisbury SAT Cathedral, has just reopened to the public, with his grand SAT piano being one of the many objects on display. Are senior SAT politicians today able to be quite as open about a love of SAT classical music? Petroc discusses this and Heath’s legacy SAT with ITN’s former political editor, Michael Brunson and the SAT Economist’s Anne McElvoy. SAT SAT 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert b042bdd2 (Listen) SAT Phantasm and Daniel Hyde SAT SAT Consort music by William Lawes, John Jenkins and Thomas SAT Tomkins, performed by Phantasm with organist Daniel Hyde, at SAT St Agnes of Bohemia Convent, Prague recorded earlier this SAT year. SAT SAT 14:00 Saturday Classics b042bdd4 (Listen) SAT Lucy Worsley, Duchess Sophia Dorothea of Brunswick and SAT Luneburg SAT SAT Historian Lucy Worlsey introduces the first of three SAT programmes exploring music and the wives of the Georgian SAT kings, today the Duchess Sophia Dorothea of Brunswick and SAT Lüneburg. SAT SAT The story of the wife of George I is a tragic tale of abuse SAT and political intrigue. The woman who should have been Queen SAT of Great Britain spent more than thirty years, a prisoner in SAT a moated stately home in Northern Germany and never set foot SAT in the country. SAT SAT Lucy Worlsey recounts her story juxtaposed with a selection SAT of music linked or associated with the Duchess. Including SAT music by JS Bach, Steffani and Handel. SAT SAT 16:00 Sound of Cinema b042bdd6 (Listen) SAT The Newman Dynasty SAT SAT Matthew Sweet looks at the music of the Newman Dynasty of SAT film composers, founded by Alfred and including David, whose SAT score features in "Tarzan", released this week. SAT SAT Alfred Newman scored over 200 films, won 9 Academy Awards SAT and is considered one of the most important figures in the SAT history of Hollywood film music. He was also head of a great SAT dynasty of film composers: brother Lionel, sons David, SAT Thomas and daughter Maria, and nephew Randy Newman; and the SAT dynasty continues on into the next generation. SAT SAT Matthew selects examples from the Newman catalogue and SAT includes music from this week's featured new release, SAT "Tarzan", with a new score by David Newman. SAT SAT The Classic Score of the week is Alfed Newman's "How The SAT West Was Won". SAT SAT #soundofcinema.

SUN SUN 12:00 Private Passions b036v4p8 (Listen) SUN Robert Macfarlane SUN SUN Robert Macfarlane is a writer and scholar who has spent SUN years exploring the wild spaces of the world. In this SUN location edition of Private Passions, he takes Michael SUN Berkeley to an uninhabited island off the coast of Suffolk, SUN Orfordness. It was a place used for military testing right SUN up to the 1950s, and it's littered with abandoned rusty SUN machinery and ruined observation towers; the wind scrapes SUN across the debris and makes a kind of unearthly music. It's SUN the perfect setting, then, to listen to music about wild SUN spaces and bird calls: Mussorgsky's Night on a Bare Mountain SUN and Messiaen's Abime des Oiseaux among them. Robert SUN Macfarlane talks about feeling that he is walking with SUN ghosts, particularly the ghost of poet Edward Thomas who SUN died in the First World War. He introduces the music that SUN Thomas listened to at the Front, Chopin's Berceuse (or SUN Lullaby). The programme also includes a rare recording made SUN in the 1950s on a rock far out into the Atlantic, of a group SUN of Hebridean islanders singing psalms. Macfarlane is a SUN Cambridge scholar and award-winning writer, as well as a SUN climber, walker, and wild swimmer. He is extraordinarily SUN eloquent when he introduces this atmospheric selection of SUN music. SUN SUN First broadcast in July 2013.

SUN SUN The programme features the world premiere of a new setting SUN of 'Fern Hill' by Julian Philips sung by the Welsh National SUN Opera Youth Opera, and at 4.30pm there's a special edition SUN of "Meet My Choir", as we meet Laugharne's local community SUN choir - the Corran Singers. SUN SUN 17:30 Words and Music b042bh35 (Listen) SUN Dylan Thomas Out Loud SUN SUN A special edition of Words and Music as part of Radio 3's SUN Dylan Thomas centenary celebrations. SUN SUN Often set against the background of his beloved South Wales, SUN Thomas explored the big themes: childhood, religion, love SUN and death. The programme includes many well-loved poems and SUN stories, including: 'After the Funeral', 'Do Not Go Gentle', SUN 'The ForceThat Through the Green Fuse Drives the Flower', SUN 'Under Milk Wood', 'A Visit to Grandpa's' and 'A Story'. SUN Thomas himself features, in a powerful archive recording of SUN 'Lament'. SUN SUN An evocative folk song arrangement from the Cory Band, a SUN hymn from the Tywi Male Choir, and a stirring rendition of SUN Land of My Fathers from Bryn Terfel further emphasise SUN Thomas's roots. But although his Welsh identity is so SUN fundamental, Thomas's work has universal resonance. Thus SUN Thomas also rubs shoulders with the likes of Schubert, SUN Debussy, Rachmaninov, Stravinsky, Ligeti, Steve Reich and SUN Johnny Cash. SUN SUN The newly commissioned readings are given by two of SUN Britain's most exciting young actors, Catrin Stewart and SUN Trystan Gravelle - both, like Thomas himself, from South SUN Wales. Together they bring to life the texts in idiomatic SUN and vibrant performances, showing Thomas to be a poet in the SUN true bardic tradition, the full impact of whose work is best SUN appreciated read out loud.

Shunned by the locals, Wiltshire SUN sets out to uncover the secret behind Case's mysterious hold SUN over the islanders, and the truth in the tales of the SUN singing devils living deep in the bush. SUN SUN Dylan Thomas adapted the short story of the same title by SUN Robert Louis Stevenson to create this screenplay but it was SUN never filmed, despite interest from Richard Burton. So this SUN radio adaptation for the centenary of his birth is the world SUN premiere of a work that blends some of the wordplay of Under SUN Milk Wood with the brooding mystery of Heart of Darkness.

The bright and lively Dance Fantasy has MON become one of his best known works. Alun Hoddinott's MON clarinet concerto dates from 1949, and became the piece MON which first won him international attention. Soloist Robert MON Plane is Principal Clarinet of the BBC National Orchestra of MON Wales. Mervyn Burtch is one of Wales's most distinguished MON composers. This year he celebrates his 85th birthday with a MON commission from the Welsh Music information centre, Ty MON Cerdd, an orchestral suite of portraits describing Dylan MON Thomas.Stravinsky had intended to collaborate on a film with MON the Welsh poet, who he met in 1952, but Thomas died shortly MON after, and all that remains is this poignant song cycle. MON Aaron Copland took inspiration from his native countryside MON in America in the 1940s, mirroring the way the landscapes of MON Wales took root in the poetry of Dylan Thomas.

MON Five leading writers and artists reflect on the ways in MON which they connect with one of Wales's most famous cultural MON exports, Dylan Thomas. MON Professor John Goodby is one of the world's most respected MON academic authorities on the poetry of Dylan Thomas. Using MON poems such as the radiant "In the White Giant's Thigh", "And MON death shall have no dominion" and "A Refusal to Mourn" he MON explores how the boundaries which Dylan Thomas crossed in MON both life and art have made it difficult for critics to MON pigeon-hole his legacy. MON MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 b042bk3n (Listen) MON Secret Keeper Session MON MON Bassist Stephan Crump and guitarist Mary Halvorson perform MON in an exclusive studio session for Jazz on 3, as Secret MON Keeper. MON MON For those who know Crump from his work with Rosetta Trio - MON featured on the programme a few weeks ago - this performance MON highlights a different and more exploratory side of the MON bassist's playing. Whilst his trademark warmth and bounce MON remains, here textures and melodies unfurl organically MON through a series of improvised narratives and spontaneous MON compositions. Halvorson's sound on guitar is truly unique - MON a beguiling approach to extended techniques is so fluid and MON well integrated, that rumbling detuned notes and the plink MON of bell-like effects seem a completely natural part of the MON landscape. Secret Keeper's enchanting and sensitive approach MON is an antidote to the brash blowing sessions and high-paced MON chaos sometimes associated with freely improvised music.

Although he learned very TUE little music at school, Gal was encouraged in his vocation TUE by his aunt Jenny. By the time of WW1, when he was in his TUE early 20s, he had made a promising start as a composer: he'd TUE completed an opera and a symphony - which won him the TUE Austrian State Prize for Composition. But Gal was a very TUE self-critical young man, with a seriousness of purpose, and TUE he allowed very little of these early works to be published. TUE And, as Hans Gal expert Kenneth Woods explains, he didn't TUE allow his service in the war to stem the flow of his TUE compositions.

FRI FRI 23:00 World on 3 b042bqrs (Listen) FRI La Chiva Gantiva in Session, Commonwealth Connections 14 FRI FRI Mary Ann Kennedy presents a session with La Chiva Gantiva FRI and Commonwealth Connections from Malta and The Gambia. FRI FRI COMMONWEALTH CONECTIONS MUSIC FEATURE: MALTA FRI FRI Malta's history reads like a Dan Brown novel and the music FRI that has been recorded for this week's feature is infused FRI with Malta's wonderfully diverse historical influences. FRI Musician and composer, Ruben Zahra, takes us on a guided FRI tour of traditional Maltese instruments that span the FRI centuries: from the iz-Zummara, a Maltese reed flute FRI fashioned by children as a toy, to the impressive Maltese FRI bagpipe or iz-Zaqq. Ruben's passion for these instruments, FRI the music and the skills needed to play is helping to FRI prevent their extinction, as happened with the Maltese Lira. FRI This is the world's first studio recording of the Maltese FRI Lira which was lost some 200 years ago but recreated using FRI lithographs and paintings. FRI The tradition of working-class folk song is also being kept FRI alive by the Maltese people in the wine bars of Zejtun. The FRI 'Spirtu Pront' genre of folk song requires singers to FRI verbally duel with improvised lyrics and it has been FRI recorded live in the Ta' Ganna bar with six singers FRI competing for their pride and superiority. They are FRI accompanied by local musicians playing the unusual, horned, FRI Maltese guitar. FRI FRI HERITAGE FEATURE: THE GAMBIA FRI FRI The Gambia is a relatively small slice of land in West FRI Africa on the north and south shores of the river Gambia, FRI and surrounded by Senegal. This week's Commonwealth athlete FRI Suwaibou Sanneh currently lives away from his home town of FRI Brikama studying in the States but he carries the country's FRI music with him as he prepares for the 100 metres sprint, an FRI event for which he holds the Gambian national record. A FRI semi-finalist at the London Olympics, he aims to do even FRI better at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Music from FRI Jaliba Kuyateh and The Kumareh Band FRI FRI SESSION: LA CHIVA GANTIVA FRI La Chiva Gantiva are a group of young Colombian musicians FRI who met in Brussels. Fuelled with a desire to get back to FRI their roots, they started to combine Colombian rhythms with FRI rock, afrobeat and funk. Their new album 'Vivo' is out now FRI on Crammed Discs. We catch them as they are about to embark FRI on their UK tour. FRI
