    Classical Kids loves a good story and on Sunday we'll hear Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Aladdin, plus Tubby the Tuba performed by Ian McGlynn with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.

    Sunday July 27th
    When Elgar was a boy, he put on a play with his brothers and sisters and wrote music to accompany it! Thirty years later he arranged the music and called it his 'Wand of Youth' Suite and we'll hear it on Sunday morning. We'll also hear music by Handel and Orff, used in some of our favourite television programmes. 

    Sunday August 3rd
    On Sunday we'll hear Spanish music composed by three French composers - the Symphanie Espangole by Lalo, Espana by Chabrier and part of the Carmen Suite by Bizet. We'll also hear music by a composer who had to teach himself the violin, because he was better than all his teachers!
