Classical Kids Sunday 12 May 2013
Which of the great composers was put in jail when he tried to quit writing music? We'll find out on Sunday! We’ll also hear music written for dancing hours and minutes, in Ponchielli’s Dance of the Hours.
Schubert’s father was a teacher and wanted young Franz to teach too, but the young composer was more interested in writing music than teaching! However he did write his first symphony for his school orchestra, and we’ll hear it on this week’s Classical Kids. We'll also hear the story of The Firebird with music by Stravinsky,
