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!

On today's Classical Kids we'll meet another musical family - the percussion family! We'll also hear part of an opera written about Hansel and Gretel, and take a train ride with some of our favourite nursery rhyme friends.

Music fans got so excited watching Franz Liszt play piano, they would keep his rubbish as souveniers and even faint at performances. This obsession was called 'Lisztomania', and on Sunday we'll hear some of the exciting music Liszt wrote for the piano including his Hungarian Rhapsodies and La Campanella. Make sure you have a hat, a scarf, an umbrella and sunglasses this morning because we're going to listen to lots of music about the weather.
