Kirsty Young talks to TV presenters Ant and Dec.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03mckqs

Kirsty Young's castaways are the TV presenters Ant & Dec - Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.

The kings of Saturday night prime time, their careers and firm friendship spans twenty-odd years beginning as child actors on Byker Grove and currently hosting Britain's Got Talent, I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and their eponymously named Saturday Night Take Away. Their specialty is what are known in the business as "shiny floor shows" - programmes that involve big budgets, big audiences and, frequently, big egos.

Yet their partnership exists well beyond the four walls of a TV studio. As 13 year olds they bonded over a mutual appreciation of Newcastle United FC and Wham: they pledged themselves to be best buddies forever and now live just a few doors down from each other. When Ant got married Dec was best man.

They say, "without doubt, the best thing to come out of the last twenty years, the greatest thing we've ever achieved, our biggest success, has been our friendship. And nothing will ever change that."

Producer: Cathy Drysdale.

Hugh Masekela

Sun 29 Dec 2013

12:00

BBC Radio 3

Michael Berkeley's guest is South African trumpeter, composer and singer Hugh Masekela.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03lzsbh

Hugh Masekela is a jazz legend. Brought up in South Africa during Apartheid, he left the country at 21, and spent the next 30 years in exile, releasing album after album ? 43 to date ? and performing alongside all the other great musicians of our era: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Stevie Wonder, The Who... He's still making music and touring the world, at 74, and Private Passions was lucky enough to catch him on a visit to London.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about his passion for performing, which began when Bishop Trevor Huddleston gave him money to go to buy his first trumpet. Masekela describes vividly the musical culture he grew up in: the townships were awash with music, he says, and there was a competing cacophony of sound. As a child he began piano lessons at four, begging his father to play records before he had the strength to turn the handle of the gramophone. Music took over and he says he's been 'bewitched' ever since. He tells the moving story of how as a teenager he played truant from school and instead spent his days playing with other musicians in recording studios; his father found out and beat him severely, and Hugh ran away from home. But a few weeks later his father visited the studio, and heard him play the trumpet. Realising that this was his future, his father forgave him, and welcomed him back into the family.

Masekela also talks about his relationship with Nelson Mandela, and how Mandela smuggled a letter out of prison to him, inspiring his anthem (and worldwide hit) 'Bring Him Back Home'. He reveals the disillusionment he feels about South Africa now, and reflects on what would have happened had he stayed there ? 'I would have died very young'.

Hugh Masekela's choices include Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, J S Bach, Billie Holliday and Ravel.

Party!

Sun 29 Dec 2013

17:30

BBC Radio 3

Texts and music for the festive season, with readings by David Neilson and Naomi Bentley.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03lzsff

With the festive season well under way, actors David Neilson and Naomi Bentley read poetry and prose on a party theme. Music includes Verdi, Fats Waller and Fred Astaire.

Producer's Note

Party! What could be a lighter, more fizzing title for a seasonal gathering together of Words and Music? Indeed, there is plenty of humour in this collection: the classic Christmas drinks ‘do’ hosted by the friends of the parents of one Bridget Jones, featuring her seminal, excruciating, epoch-making first meeting with future husband Mark Darcy; two comic poems by Ogden Nash – in one, the rhyme-ready Artie (the life of the party) is a womaniser on the loose (madam, please “curtain your spine”), while The Party Next-Door bemoans the experience of a party from the other side of the fence –not greener, just very, very annoying.

There’s phantasmagoria in this collection too: the fabulous tableau of the Hatter, the March Hare and the Dormouse all speaking in riddles to Lewis Carroll’s Alice in the ‘mad’ tea-party in her adventures in Wonderland. It’s faintly disturbing.

In fact, scratch beneath the surface and the terrain soon darkens. Party! was never going to be all levity – the more I searched through the literature, the more the troubles of mankind came tumbling from the bookshelves: if Bridget Jones and the original Mr Darcy in the ball scene of Pride and Prejudice (both read by Naomi Bentley) bookend this edition of Words and Music, then its centre-piece is F Scott Fitzgerald’s description of the breathtakingly opulent parties of Jay Gatsby. Gatsby’s parties only highlight the vapidity of his guests: the crashers, the hangers-on who don’t know their host but who happily feed on his champagne and baked hams, who make introductions ‘forgotten on the spot’. The passage from The Great Gatsby is brilliantly evoked by the actor David Neilson. And David also reads the inspiring prose of Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s The Leopard, a description of an aristocratic ball in fin de siècle Risorgimento Italy – the waltzing guests celebrate life but without realising it, they’re playing out the passing of the ancien regime and its centuries-old values, facing a future of great change and uncertainty. There is a poem each by Heinrich Heine and Thomas Hardy – both men speak of the unseen guests at the party: shadows of fragmented relationships, of lost loves, of the dead, haunting and stalking our memories as we try to embrace the party.

And what of the music? It was easy for The Leopard: Nino Rota’s score for Visconti’s extraordinary cinematic realisation of the novel. There’s a song composed by Hans Pfitzner to follow Naomi Bentley’s reading of Heinrich Heine’s poem Sie haben Heut’ Abend Gesellschaft that it sets; the space between the sparse notes of Debussy’s Voiles make ideal stepping stones for Alice as she continues her journey from the tea-party to the garden. Of course, dance is never very far away: as well as Nino Rota, there’s Weber’s own ballroom scene, two dancers join and part in his Invitation to the Dance. And, talking of dance, Fred Astaire makes two, very classy appearances.

Thanks and admiration to the readers: Naomi Bentley, a television actress who has graced Casualty, Miranda, Jonathan Creek and My Family among numerous others, and whose delivery of six words (including an expletive) in one of Ricky Gervaise’s Extras quite stole the show. And David Neilson, best known for his portrayal of Roy Cropper in ITV’s Coronation Street. He’s a brilliantly versatile and sensitive actor, as you’ll hear in today’s edition.

As part of a Christmas series, pianist Dame Mitsuko Uchida invites Sean Rafferty into her piano studio for an extended interview reflecting on a life in music and culture.

Mitsuko Uchida is one of the world's most celebrated pianists, noted for her interpretations of Mozart, Schubert and Beethoven. Japanese born Uchida has made the UK her home and houses her four pianos in a studio in West London - a deeply personal space, not often opened to visitors. Mitusko Uchida discusses her early musical memories, from her instant connection with the piano to hearing Aida with her father when an Italian opera company made its first visit to Japan. She describes her love of London, how she doesn't feel the need to own great art and her deep love of Mozart, a composer who "always forgives".

Producer: Freya Hellier.
