Anomalisa, Seamus Heaney's The Aeneid, Handel at Vauxhall, In the Age of Giorgione

Radio 4's Book of the Week is Seamus Heaney's translation of Book VI of The Aeneid, read by Ian McKellen. Samira Ahmed speaks to Catherine Heaney, the poet's daughter, and his editor, Matthew Hollis, about her father's love of the poem, the place of Latin in his life, and bringing the poet's final work out of the underworld of his study and into the light of day. Anomalisa, the Academy Award nominated stop-motion animation from Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson is a darkly comedic and surreal journey into the mind of a self-help author who is crippled by the mundanity of his life until he meets a sales rep whilst on a business trip. Jenny McCartney reviews Historian David Coke and conductor and harpsichordist Bridget Cunningham discuss a new recording of Handel's music by London Early Opera, focused on London's famed Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. The master Venetian painter Giorgione paved the way, in the early 1500s, to the golden age of luminous colour and even the first landscape in the history of art, however since he died young we actually don't know much about him. Curator Per Rumberg shows us round the Royal Academy exhibition which brings together Giorgione's key masterpieces with works by Titian, Giovanni Cariani, and Tullio Lombardo to pay tribute to his revolutionary influence. Presenter: Samira Ahmed Producer: Jack Soper.…read more
