Classical Kids

    Sunday, 7 - 8am

    Make sure to visit our new Classical Kids gallery here, featuring some of the pictures you created listening to our programmes! This is by our most recent Classical Kids artist, Aisling Browne aged 7 who lives in Heidelberg, Germany.

    The first is a great circus scene she drew while listening to Entry Of The Gladiators by Julius Fucik, and the second picture features lots of musical instruments - the piano, trumpet, drum, cymbals and oboe and violin - as well as a plus a clog inspired by a Clog Dance!

    Classical Kids

    Ravel loved to tell stories and today we'll hear music he wrote to tell the story of Beauty and the Beast and Tom Thumb. We'll also hear about a talented family - the Bach family!

    Sunday March 1st
    Classical Kids celebrates the first day of Spring with part of Vivaldi's Four Seasons describing springtime rain, birds singing and a happy dance. We'll also hear music written especially for different times of the day, starting with an energetic sunrise by Ferde Grofe and finishing with a beautiful nocturne by John Field.

    Sunday March 8th
    The Russian composer Dmitri Kabalevsky loved writing music for children, and on Sunday’s Classical Kids we’ll hear his children’s piano pieces and his songs performed by a children’s choir. We’ll also hear instruments from around the world, including bagpipes from Scotland, a didgeridoo from Australia and the cimbalom from Hungary.
