    We're mad about Mozart today, and we'll hear part of a horn concerto he wrote for the owner of a cheese shop! We'll also hear three sonatas, by Beethoven, Brahms and Faure.

    Sunday April 5th
    Early one morning, Peter opened the gate and went out into the big green meadow..." What will become of Peter and his friends the duck, the bird and the cat when they're visited by a wolf? Find out on Classical Kids this Sunday as we hear Prokofiev's story of Peter and the Wolf, read by David Bowie. We'll also visit a circus, with exciting music by Rimsky Korsakov, Fucik and Sousa.

    Sunday April 12th
    What do Franz Schubert and Gustav Holst have in common? They both wrote music for school orchestras to play, and so we'll hear Schubert's First Symphony and Holst's St. Pauls Suite on Sunday morning. We'll also hear music written by Bach for the solo cello, and a Bossa Nova written for twelve cellos!
