    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 October 11th
    This morning we'll hear music written about different types of vehicles! We'll ride in a sports car with music by John Adams, take a trip on a train thanks to Villa-Lobos and go sailing with Claude Debussy. We'll also hear fascinating facts about J.S. Bach, including why he spent a month in prison!

    Sunday October 18th
    Once upon a time there was a brave princess named Eliza whose brothers were turned into swans by a wicked witch. It's up to Eliza to save them by knitting shirts from stinging nettles, and we'll hear wonderful music written for the Hans Christian story by the composer Elena Kats-Chernin. We’ll also meet the ‘father of Russian music’, Mikhail Glinka.
