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!

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. 

Sunday May 5th, 10am

We'll celebrate Summer this morning with music by Vivaldi and Glazunov written about the Seasons, and meet a snowman who loves the Summer!
