Classical Kids

We'll hear music which Gustav Holst wrote for his music students this morning, and we'll travel to Africa, Austria and Australia to hear some wonderful boys and girls choirs.

Saturday April 22nd, 7am (repeat)

To celebrate Easter, this morning we'll hear the story of The Rainbow Bear, a polar bear who wishes he was all the colours of the Rainbow. But when his wish comes true, he learns a very important lesson. With beautiful music by Stephen Barlow, this colourful story is read by Joanna Lumley and based on the book by Michael Morpurgo.

"Early one morning, Peter opened the gate and went out into the big green meadow..." What will become of Peter and his friends the duck, the bird and the cat when they're visited by a wolf? Find out on Classical Kids this Sunday as we hear Prokofiev's story of Peter and the Wolf, read by Dame Edna Everage. We'll also visit a circus, with exciting music by Rimsky Korsakov, Fucik and Sousa.

Sunday April 30th, 10am

We're mad about Mozart today, and we'll hear part of a horn concerto he wrote for the owner of a cheese shop, plus a symphony he wrote when he was just eight years old! We'll also hear the story of Paddington bear told with music, as he meets the Brown family for the first time.
