Sunday July 3rd

In the overture to his opera William Tell, Rossini painted a picture of breaking dawn, a Summer storm and the galloping horses of the Swiss army! We'll hear Rossini's overture on Sunday, and a duet he wrote for some meowing cats! We'll also hear piano music written for different fairytales by the composer Robert Schumann this week, telling the stories of Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin and Sleeping Beauty.

Sunday July 10th

The French composer Francis Poulenc wrote music for Babar the Elephant after a little girl gave him a story book all about the adventures of Babar and asked him to play it on the piano. We'll hear the music Poulenc wrote on Sunday's Classical Kids. We'll also hear folk music which was turned into a beautiful Fantasia by Vaughan Williams, and dances from Russia, France and Hungary. 

Sunday July 17th

People weren't sure what to make of Igor Stravinsky's music when they first heard it. Everyone loved his music for the magical ballet The Firebird, but people disliked the music and dancing at The Rite of Spring so much, that there were riots! We love his exciting music on Classical Kids though, and we'll hear music from both ballets this morning. And we know that Tchaikovsky wrote beautiful music for the ballet, but today we'll hear instrumental music that he wrote including his great Piano Concerto No.1, the thrilling 1812 Overture and a waltz for his friend Nathalie. 

Classical Kids

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.
