She chooses music by the French composer SUN who wrote soundtracks for many of Truffaut's films, Georges SUN Delerue. SUN But it's her marriage to Corin Redgrave that forms the heart SUN of the programme. She talks movingly about living with Corin SUN during the final years of his life, after he suffered a SUN brain injury and lost a great deal of memory. There were SUN huge challenges for them both. And one of the losses, at SUN first, was music - he could not bear to listen. But there SUN came a moment when Kika sat at the piano, and Corin SUN responded to her playing. SUN Her choices include Beethoven's 'Spring' Violin Sonata, in SUN which she used to accompany her father, the actor David SUN Markham; a song from 'Guys and Dolls'; and the love duet SUN from Handel's 'Rodelinda'.

SUN SUN 17:30 Words and Music b04mb49w (Listen) SUN Light! SUN SUN On the day that the clocks fall back an hour after Daylight SUN Saving - Cheryl Campbell and William Houston present a SUN montage of music and speech inspired by ideas of Light. SUN Featuring words and music from a SUN diverse body of writers: William Shakespeare, Charles SUN Dickens, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, Werner Heisenberg, SUN Arthur C Clarke, Apsley Cherry-Garrard, Henry Vaughan, and SUN Dante; and from the Talmud and Rig-Veda. And composers: SUN Gustav Mahler, Benjamin Britten, Ludwig van Beethoven, Toru SUN Takemitsu, Henry Purcell, Claude Debussy, Morten Lauridsen, SUN Gyorgy Ligeti, Franz Schubert, Philip Glass and Carl Orff. SUN The programme weaves a tapestry of different illustrations, SUN understandings, and poetic interpretations about light: SUN light as a metaphor for love, birth, innocence, and purity; SUN as a fundamental particle of science; as an expression of SUN the presence of the Divine, of God's munificence; or quiet SUN simply, as a marker of the cyclical day. SUN SUN Producer: Chris Wines SUN SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature b04mb49y (Listen) SUN The Gospel According to Joan SUN SUN This is a personal, detailed portrayal of British theatre's SUN favourite rebel, Joan Littlewood, and her legacy, on the SUN 100th anniversary of her birth, with contributions from SUN those who knew her best - actors and SUN writers. SUN For playwright David Hare she offered 'a red hot SUN reinterpretation of the world'. Howard Brenton learnt from SUN her that 'you could do anything' on stage, and Southbank SUN director Jude Kelly was blown away by the sheer vitality of SUN her work. Joan Littlewood herself adds trenchant SUN observations about the class struggle, the Arts Council, and SUN 'giving actors hell'. SUN Actor Brian Murphy found himself pelted with chocolates by a SUN Paris audience after a shattering performance of SUN Littlewood's 'Oh What A Lovely War'. Nigel Hawthorne says he SUN was almost destroyed by her piercing criticism. Richard SUN Harris had to strip to the buff at his audition, while SUN Barbara Windsor thought she was chatting to the theatre SUN cleaner, only to find that the cleaner was Joan Littlewood SUN and that her audition had already taken place in the foyer SUN that Littlewood was scrubbing down. SUN The programme traces the development of the Company from its SUN 1930s origins in Ewan MacColl's political street theatre, to SUN the arrival, in the 1940s, of Jean Newlove (now a sparky 91 SUN year old) who brought the Laban movement techniques that SUN gave the Company its physical attack. Her assistant in the SUN 1960s, director Philip Hedley, recalls how, for Littlewood, SUN danger was her safety. She pushed every idea and every SUN player to the limit. SUN And as for the famous cap that Joan Littlewood always wore, SUN Brian Murphy remembers that when the play had gone well she SUN threw it in the air, but when she wasn't happy, she threw it SUN on the ground and stamped on it, and that sometimes happened SUN during the interval. SUN SUN 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert b04mb4b0 (Listen) SUN Scottish Ensemble - Mozart, Part, Haydn, Schnittke SUN SUN Live from Perth Concert Hall SUN SUN Scottish pianist Alasdair Beatson joins the Scottish SUN Ensemble to perform Mozart's spirited piano concerto No. 12 SUN in A in addition to Haydn's witty Double concerto in F for SUN violin and SUN piano with the Ensemble's Artistic Director, violinist SUN Jonathan Morton.

SUN SUN Wiltshire arrives on an unnamed Pacific SUN island hoping to trade in copra. But an encounter with rival SUN trader Case leads to a macabre wedding. Shunned by the SUN locals, Wiltshire sets out to uncover the secret behind SUN Case's mysterious hold over the islanders, and the truth in SUN the tales of the singing devils living deep in the bush. 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. SUN Producer Alison Hindell came across The Beach of Falesa when SUN her stepdaughter moved into a new house in Sydney and found SUN the published edition of the text amongst the remnants left SUN behind by the previous owner.

MON MON 12:00 Composer of the Week b04mhl1t (Listen) MON Aram Khachaturian (1903-1978), Khachaturian Arrives in MON Moscow MON MON His famous Sabre Dance was once the most frequently played MON piece of music in the world, this week Donald Macleod MON explores the life and music of Aram Khachaturian. MON MON Khachaturian's highly-colourful scores led him MON to be dubbed the "Rubens of Russian Music". On this 70th MON birthday he was showered with praise internationally MON including being hailed as the "Pride of Soviet Music". Yet MON Khachaturian was a late starter in the world of music. By MON the time he went to study it formally, he was already too MON old to focus on the piano. Instead he took up composition MON with Mikhail Gnessin, had private lessons with Reinhold MON Gliere, and then studied with Nickolai Myaskovsky at the MON Moscow Conservatoire, where his Trio made quite a stir. MON Khachaturian went on to have a significant impact upon MON Soviet music and he became famous around the world for his MON concertos, and also his ballets. However, he wasn't exempt MON from Stalin's purges and witch hunts. Khachaturian was MON accused of 'formalism', along with Shostakovich, Prokofiev MON and Myaskovsky. These once lauded composers now found MON themselves shunned. Once Stalin died however things began to MON change, and Khachaturian soon found himself as popular as MON ever. He was offered conducting tours around the world MON including trips to the UK, Mexico, and the USA. It was MON towards the end of his life that Khachaturian's Sabre Dance MON from one of this ballets, became the most frequently played MON work in the world. MON Khachaturian was born in Georgia to Armenian parents. He MON considered himself to be a European Armenian and, although MON he lived most of his life in Moscow, the folk songs he heard MON as a young boy would always remain with him. Khachaturian MON went on to compose many songs of his own, and other vocal MON works, including his Ode of Joy. MON As a student, Khachaturian played in the college brass band, MON although he frequently argued with the conductor. It was MON only after he moved to Moscow, to study, that Khachaturian MON heard a professional, classical piano recital for the first MON time. One of his student works, a Trio, made a big MON impression; Prokofiev took a copy with him to Paris to have MON it performed there. MON MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert b04mb5c6 (Listen) MON Wigmore Hall Mondays: Elisabeth Leonskaja MON MON The distinguished Russian pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja, live MON from Wigmore Hall, London in a programme of Beethoven and MON Berg.

MON MON 18:30 Composer of the Week b04mhl1t (Listen) MON [Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today] MON MON 19:30 Opera on 3 b04mb5cd (Listen) MON Mary King introduces a performance of Monteverdi's MON historical drama, The Coronation of Poppea, recorded at the MON home of Opera North - the Grand Theatre, Leeds. MON MON Based loosely on actual events in 1st-century AD MON Rome, The Coronation of Poppea charts the consuming erotic MON obsession of the Emperor Nero for the beautiful Poppea MON Sabina. Ruthlessly sweeping aside anyone who stands in the MON way of their union - including Nero's wife Octavia and the MON poet and philosopher Seneca - Nero and Poppea triumph over MON all their opponents and rejoice in one of the most MON sexually-charged love duets ever written.The moral MON ambivalence of one of opera's earliest masterpieces ensures MON that it remains to this day one of the most shocking and MON compelling. MON Tim Albery, who directed the production of Handel's Giulio MON Cesare for Opera North in 2012, has prepared a new MON performing version of this dramma musicale about which MON almost everything is disputed, including its authorship. The MON cast is led by the American mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy MON (Poppea) and the British countertenor James Laing (Nerone). MON The conductor is Laurence Cummings, one of Britain's most MON exciting and versatile exponents of historically-informed MON performance.

MON MON 22:45 The Essay b03h3t81 (Listen) MON The Existential Me, Paul Hart MON MON Paul Hart is a young theatre director who last year directed MON Jean Paul Sartre's existentialist play 'Huis Clos' in MON London's West End. In the play three people are locked in a MON room with each other for eternity. MON This is damnation, for Hell, famously, is other people. MON This year Hart was staff director of 'The Captain of MON Köpenick' at the National Theatre. In Carl Zuckmayer's play MON petty criminal Wilhelm Voigt (Antony Sher), released after MON fifteen years in prison, wanders 1910-Berlin in desperate MON pursuit of identity papers. When he picks up an abandoned MON military uniform in a fancy-dress shop he suddenly finds the MON city ready to obey his every command. But what he craves is MON official recognition that he exists. MON Drawing on his experience of these productions, his other MON work in the theatre and his life as he establishes himself MON in his hazardous profession, Paul Hart considers the power MON and veracity of existentialist ideas. MON Producer: Julian May MON The Existential Me was first broadcast in November 2013 to MON mark the centenary of the birth of Albert Camus.

Over the course of MON his career he has become one of the leading players in the MON city's avant-jazz scene, sharing stages with the likes of MON John Zorn and Bill Frisell while leading groups such as Big MON Satan with Tom Rainey and Marc Ducret as well as the BBC MON Trio with Jim Black and Nels Cline.

WED During World War Two, Khachaturian, like many other WED composers, was evacuated to the country where he was WED encouraged to continue composing for the national cause.

THU THU Khachaturian was accustomed to having lavish THU praise heaped upon him. So it came as quite a surprise when, THU in 1948, he was charged with the crime of 'formalism', along THU with his composer colleagues, Shostakovich, Prokofiev and THU Myaskovsky. Stalin had instigated a purge of the arts and THU Khachaturian was on the hit list. Suddenly, his music was THU out of favour. One of the works cited by Khachaturian's THU accusers was his Symphony No 3. At the end of its premiere, THU the audience sat in stony silence. THU Khachaturian did his best to continue working, including THU further film projects. His music for the epic, Battle of THU Stalingrad, incorporated Russian folk music. By the early THU 1950s, more opportunities were coming Khachaturian's way, THU including the chance to work on another ballet. This would THU be his score for Spartacus, which includes his famous Adagio THU of Spartacus and Phrygia.

FRI FRI In 1953 Stalin died and those composers, such as FRI Khachaturian, who had previously been charged with the crime FRI of formalism, now started to speak out for greater creative FRI freedom. Khachaturian was even invited, along with other FRI members of the intelligentsia, to a reception at the FRI Kremlin. In the spirit of this new democracy, Khachaturian FRI composed his Ballad of the Motherland. FRI The 1960s were a busy time for Khachaturian, including many FRI conducting trips abroad. He managed to meet both Ernest FRI Hemingway and Charlie Chaplin on his travels. Life back FRI home, in Soviet Russia, was also very busy. Much of his time FRI was spent serving on official committees. In the final years FRI of his life, Khachaturian composed two sets of trilogies. FRI One was a set of sonatas for solo string instruments. The FRI other was a trio of concerto rhapsodies, including one for FRI cello and orchestra. In 1976 Khachaturian was devastated by FRI the death of his wife and, despite his plans to compose a FRI fourth symphony, just two years later he also died.

FRI FRI Ewan McLennan's last album was chosen by Mojo magazine as FRI one of the top ten albums of 2010 FRI - his new album,''Stories Still Untold', has just been FRI released. He was brought up in Edinburgh, and was FRI classically trained on the piano - however, his family was FRI imbued with Scottish folk culture, and his ideas on FRI introducing folk-style improvisation into Chopin was not FRI well received by his teachers. He then turned to classical FRI guitar, and worked up a formidable technique. All this FRI produced an individual approach to folk music, reviving FRI sometimes well known, sometimes long-forgotten songs and FRI presenting them in a new light. He also writes his own FRI songs, reflecting present-day concerns: he says, "One of the FRI songs from my album, 'The Last Bird to Sing', is about the FRI ex-soldier and conscientious objector that I got to know ; FRI Joe Glenton. Not only is his story inspiring but it occurred FRI to me it's one that has been told, in one form or another, FRI in traditional folk songs through the ages.". FRI
