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.

Today we'll hear piano pieces which Robert Schumann wrote for his daughters to play including Humming and Hunting Songs, and Hansel and Gretel with music by Engelbert Humperdinck.
