    We'll wake up to a musical sunrise by Grieg, and hear classical and traditional Irish music played on the harp, and dance music by some of the great composers including Ravel.

    Sunday August 3rd
    On Sunday we'll hear Spanish music composed by three French composers - the Symphanie Espangole by Lalo, Espana by Chabrier and part of the Carmen Suite by Bizet. We'll also hear music by a composer who had to teach himself the violin, because he was better than all his teachers!

    Sunday August 10th
    Mozart and Haydn were great friends. Haydn called Mozart 'the greatest composer known to me' and Mozart wrote a whole series of String Quartets, which he dedicated to Haydn. Ian McGlynn will feature part of those quartets on Sunday including The Hunt, and we'll hear two fugues - one by Bach and the other by Lady Gaga!
