    Classical Kids

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

    Sunday April 27th
    We'll wake up to a musical sunrise by Grieg this morning, and enjoy classical and traditional Irish music played on the harp. We'll also hear some different dances by some of the great composers, including a waltz by Joann Strauss II, a Spanish dance by Ravel and ballet music by Khachaturian!

    Sunday May 4th
    Beethoven took so long to write his fifth symphony that he finished an opera and two other symphonies while he worked on it! However it's remembered as one of his most famous works and we'll hear it on Sunday. We'll also sail the seas with music by Wagner, and we'll find out how Paddington Bear got his name!
