Classical Kids

As Poulenc was sitting at his piano one day, a little girl handed him a story book and asked him to play it-and he did-so we'll hear his Babar the Elephant this Sunday!

Sunday August 20th, 10am

On today's Classical Kids we'll meet another musical family - the percussion family! We'll also hear part of an opera written about Hansel and Gretel, and take a train ride with some of our favourite nursery rhyme friends. 

Sunday August 27th, 10am

Music fans got so excited watching Franz Liszt play piano, they would keep his rubbish as souveniers and even faint at performances. This obsession was called 'Lisztomania', and on Sunday we'll hear some of the exciting music Liszt wrote for the piano including his Hungarian Rhapsodies and La Campanella. Make sure you have a hat, a scarf, an umbrella and sunglasses this morning because we're going to listen to lots of music about the weather.
