THE GENIUS OF MOZART
Vienna Day
Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert

Sunday 9 January
1.00-2.00pm BBC RADIO 3

The BBC Philharmonic and conductor Nicholas Kraemer take listeners on a miniature trip to the opera, beginning with the overture to one of Mozart's earliest operatic triumphs, Lucio Silla, composed for the Milan court when he was just 16.

New Generation Artist Ben Johnson contributes three arias Mozart wrote to show off the genius of individual voices in other composer's operas, as well as a licenza praising the Archbishop of Salzburg on the anniversary of his enthronement.

A rare version of a Divertimento written in Mozart's downtime in Milan on an earlier visit completes the programme.

Ben Johnson sings tenor and Nicholas Kraemer conducts the BBC Philharmonic.

THE GENIUS OF MOZART
Vienna Day
The Early Music Show – Mozart And The Baroque

Sunday 9 January
2.00-3.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Lucie Skeaping reflects on Mozart's fascination for the music of the Baroque in his later career. The programme features his transcriptions for string quartet of JS Bach's Preludes And Fugues and his 1782 Baroque Suite for piano in C major.

The programme also examines Mozart's re-orchestrations of some of Handel's large-scale works such as Acis And Galatea, and how some Baroque-like features found their way into pieces such as The Magic Flute, the Requiem and the Jupiter Symphony.

THE GENIUS OF MOZART
Vienna Day
Herr Mozart Presents...

Sunday 9 January
6.00-7.00pm BBC RADIO 3

One of the most successful periods of Mozart's life was the first half of the 1780s, when, having made his permanent move to Vienna, he appeared before the public many times as a composer and pianist.

The formats of these concerts were different from those of today. A symphony, for instance, could be broken up and interspersed with vocal items, keyboard improvisations and examples of the genre which Mozart brought to a new level of sophistication at this time – the piano concerto.

Mozart scholar Cliff Eisen explores the atmosphere of Mozart's Viennese concerts, and revisits one in particular, the benefit concert given at the Burgtheater on 11 March 1783 for his sister-in-law, singer Aloisa Lange.

Celebrations to mark the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible continue on BBC Radio 4 with a special day of readings. Broadcast over seven hours throughout the day's schedule, these readings enable listeners to hear some of the best-loved passages of scripture; a text which has contributed hugely to the literature, language and culture of this country and far beyond.

The 28 Bible readings, recorded by some of the finest acting talent of this generation, have been chosen to highlight the Bible's literary merits and include some of the most powerful narratives.

Each of the readings includes an introduction from one of eight essayists who include Simon Schama, Will Self, Archbishop Rowan Williams, David Lodge and Joanne Harris. Actors reading include Samuel West, Rory Kinnear, Miriam Margolyes, Hugh Bonneville, Emilia Fox, Toby Stephens, Adjoa Andoh, Henry Goodman, Niamh Cusack, Hugh Quarshie, Emma Fielding, Olivia Williams, Dan Stephens and Bill Patterson.

The essayist for each section introduces each reading in turn and guides listeners through the stories they are about to hear.

This day of readings follows on from a three-part documentary series presented by James Naughtie, exploring how the King James Bible came to be commissioned and written, and illustrating how it still holds a strong influence in British culture today.

Neglected Classics – Miss Mackenzie Ep 1 /2

Sunday 9 January
3.00-4.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Miss Mackenzie is written by Anthony Trollope and dramatised by Martyn Wade.

Miss Margaret Mackenzie is a single woman in her mid-thirties who receives a large inheritance when her brother dies. She must then deal with what comes with the fortune, including several suitors, who may, or, may not be after her money.

Margaret decides to rent a small house in Littlebath and takes her surviving brother Tom's daughter with her as her ward. Tom and his wife, Sarah, are horrified that they have been left no money, especially as they find themselves in financial difficulties.

Margaret's suitors include: her brother's junior partner, Mr Rubb; her cousin, John Ball, a widowed father of seven; and Mr Maguire, the Littlebath curate.

Margaret has to pick her way through this romantic minefield, not knowing whether or not each man wants to marry her for her fortune rather than love. Her wish is simply to find true love.

However, storm clouds gather when it is discovered that the fortune does not belong to Margaret after all but to her cousin, John Ball. The financial assistance she has given to her brother's family cannot continue. What is to become of Miss Margaret Mackenzie?

Miss Mackenzie stars Hattie Morahan as Miss Mackenzie; Philip Franks as John Ball; Margaret Tyzack as Lady Ball; Stephen Critchlow as Mr. Maguire; Lloyd Thomas as Mr Rubb; Sam Dale as Tom Mackenzie; Joanna Monro as Sarah Mackenzie; Leah Brotherhead as Susanna Mackenzie; Sean Baker as Mr Slow; Claire Harry as Miss Todd; Christine Kavanagh as Mrs Stumfold; and Henry Devas as Rev. Stumfold. Miss Mackenzie was the runner-up in BBC Radio 4's Neglected Classics vote.
