    Classical Kids

    Today Ian McGlynn features piano pieces that Bartok wrote for children, Peter and the Wolf read by Dame Edna Everage and some musical jokes written by Haydn.

    Sunday April 19th
    Classical Kids explores time and space this morning! First we'll listen to The Clock Symphony by Haydn, and then take a trip across the stars with music by John Williams. We'll also learn about Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, about a Tsar who rules an island full of enchanted objects and animals, and we'll hear the music including the Flight of the Bumblebee. 

    Sunday April 26th
    William Walton wrote a set of piano pieces for his niece Elizabeth to play but they were too difficult for her, so he re-wrote them as duets for her to play with her brother Michael. We'll hear some of his Music for Children this morning, including Hop-Scotch and The Three-Legged Race. We'll also hear music that George Gershwin wrote for the cities of New York and Paris.
