    Classical Kids

    Music by Jean Sibelius this morning, who wrote music which celebrated his home country, Finland. We'll also hear about Ratty, Toad and Mole, with music from The Wind in the Willows

    Sunday September 14th
    We've got the best, worst music on this week's Classical Kids - a march by Charles Ives written for a very under-rehearsed orchestra and arias sung by a soprano, notorious for her bad singing! We'll also listen to Beethoven's Eroica Symphony, a very important work which started the Romantic Period in music.

    Sunday September 21st
    They say musical talent runs in the family, so today we'll hear music by the fathers and sons from the Mozart and Strauss families, and a duet performed by the famous Labeque sisters! We'll also take a listen to music written for The Seasons by Tchaikovsky, including a song for Autumn.
