Monday - Sarah Walker with David Hepworth

With Sarah Walker. Including Musical challenge; Music in Time: Schubert songs; Artist of the Week: Hakan Hardenberger, featured performing Haydn's Trumpet Concerto in E flat.

Sarah sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain, and as Radio 3 visits Hull for its Uproot festival, Sarah will also be featuring classical repertoire throughout the week reflecting folk music from around the world

Take part in today's musical challenge: can you work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

Sarah's guest this week is the music journalist and broadcaster David Hepworth. David has launched and written for many of the most successful pop-culture magazines of the past 30 years, including Smash Hits, More, Heat, Q and The Word. He was a presenter of BBC2's The Old Grey Whistle Test and co-presented the BBC's coverage of the global charity concert Live Aid. As well as discussing his life's work and reflecting on popular culture, David also shares his passion for classical music choosing a selection of his favourite works. Across the week we'll hear music by composers including Copland, Walton and Philip Glass.

Music in Time: Romantic
Today Sarah's in the Romantic period exploring the rise of the natural world as a source of inspiration for composers. She'll share a selection of songs by Schubert that use rustic imagery.

Artist of the Week: Håkan Hardenberger
Sarah's Artist of the Week is the Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger. During three decades of performing and recording, he's established a reputation for both virtuosity and versatility. His interpretations of classic repertoire such as the concertos of Haydn and Hummel have become benchmarks for the next generation, and Sarah has selected these alongside Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No.2 in F major, widely perceived as one of the most challenging pieces in the trumpet repertoire. But, Hardenberger is also committed to championing contemporary works. Sarah's selections include Pärt's Concerto Piccolo on B-A-C-H and Takemitsu's Paths - both of which were dedicated to, and premiered, by him - as well as H K Gruber's 3 MOB Pieces.

Musical Challenge: By Association

The piece we heard was Schoenberg's arrangement of Schubert's song, Standchen'. The two composers were, therefore, Schoenberg and Schubert.
