Classical Kids

    Sunday, 7 - 8am

    Make sure to visit our new Classical Kids gallery here, featuring some of the pictures you created listening to our programmes! This is by our most recent Classical Kids artist, Aisling Browne aged 7 who lives in Heidelberg, Germany.

    The first is a great circus scene she drew while listening to Entry Of The Gladiators by Julius Fucik, and the second picture features lots of musical instruments - the piano, trumpet, drum, cymbals and oboe and violin - as well as a plus a clog inspired by a Clog Dance!

    Classical Kids

    Debussy was fascinated by toys and dolls and today we'll hear part of his ballet, The Toy Box. Plus, music written for The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin and a clog dance!

    Sunday March 8th
    The Russian composer Dmitri Kabalevsky loved writing music for children, and on Sunday’s Classical Kids we’ll hear his children’s piano pieces and his songs performed by a children’s choir. We’ll also hear instruments from around the world, including bagpipes from Scotland, a didgeridoo from Australia and the cimbalom from Hungary. We’ll also hear the enchanting Sorcerer’s Apprentice, by Paul Dukas.

    Sunday March 15th
    To celebrate Mother's Day we'll hear the story of The Runaway Bunny, about a little bunny rabbit who decides to run away. But his wise Mum tells him, 'If you run away, I will run after you.'

    We'll also celebrate St. Patrick's Day with music by great Irish composers, with The Brendan Voyage by Shaun Davey and The Children of Lir by Hamilton Harty.
