    Classical Kids

    Classical Kids is a fun introduction to composers, musicians and instruments for younger listeners - and maybe some grownups too!

    Sunday January 17th
    Today we hear a tale of adventure, daring and bad driving! Tune in for a musical version of the Wind in the Willows featuring Ratty, Mole and friends, with wonderful music by John Rutter. We’ll also hear music written about butterflies, and hear some fascinating facts about a composer whose nickname was Wolfie...

    Sunday January 24th
    We're off to Africa with songs and stories told by Ladysmith Black Mombazo this week, and we'll hear the magical tale of a Sorcerer's Apprentice. Plus some fun pieces by Bizet from his Children's Suite, and some symphonies by Beethoven. 

    Sunday January 31st
    Which great composer was put in jail when he tried to quit writing music? We'll find out today. We'll also hear music played on the tuba and we'll hear the story of Babar the Elephant read by Meryl Streep, with music by Francis Poulenc.
