Classical Kids

Beethoven loved the countryside and this morning we'll hear part of his lovely Pastoral Symphony. Plus music from the Hary Janos Suite by Kodaly including a Viennese Musical Clock.

Sunday March 5th, 10am

Classical Kids celebrates International Women's Day with music by some of the great female composers and musicians. We'll hear music by talented percussionist Evelyn Glennie (check her with Oscar the Grouch in Sesame Street below), the duetting pianist sisters Mariella and Katia Labeque, Irish composer Elaine Agnew. We'll also hear the story of a brave princess named Eliza whose brothers were turned into swans by a wicked witch. It's up to Eliza to save them by knitting shirts from stinging nettles, with music by the Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin.

Sunday March 12th, 10am

This morning we'll hear music that composer Dmitri Shostakovich wrote for his children, Galya and Maxim to play on the piano. Galya gave them their first performance, and we'll hear these short little pieces for the first time on Classical Kids, including The Bear, Merry Story and Clockwork Doll. We'll also visit Old MacDonald's farm, to hear great classical music written for chickens, cows and sheep!
