    We'll go deep-sea diving today, we'll hear the story of the Firebird with music by Stravinsky and music by one of the most famous Brazilian composers, Heitor Villa-Lobos.

    Sunday May 8th

    We'll sail the high seas with music written for pirates, and we'll make an underwater exploration to meet some of the creatures who live there. We'll also hear music written for a king, queen, a prince and a princess, and we'll hear about a composer who wrote music for many royal families, Domenico Scarlatti. 

    Sunday May 15th

    Camille Saint-Saens wasn't just a great composer, he was a great teacher too and today we'll hear music by one of his most famous students, Gabriel Fauré. We'll also hear the story of the Pied Piper with music by Walter Mourant, and some English folk songs arranged beautifully by the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
