    Classical Kids will send you back to sleep this morning with beautiful lullabies from around the world. Plus a musical menagerie by Camille Saint-Saens - The Carnival of the Animal

    Sunday April 19th
    Classical Kids explores time and space this morning! First we'll listen to The Clock Symphony by Haydn, and then take a trip across the stars with music by John Williams. We'll also learn about Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, about a Tsar who rules an island full of enchanted objects and animals, and we'll hear the music including the Flight of the Bumblebee. 

    Sunday April 26th
    William Walton wrote a set of piano pieces for his niece Elizabeth to play but they were too difficult for her, so he re-wrote them as duets for her to play with her brother Michael. We'll hear some of his Music for Children this morning, including Hop-Scotch and The Three-Legged Race. We'll also hear music that George Gershwin wrote for the cities of New York and Paris.
