In the overture to his opera William Tell, Rossini painted a picture of a Summer storm and the galloping horses of the Swiss army! We'll hear it on Sunday and we'll visit a farm.

Saturday January 21st, 7am

Hope you're all ready for an interplanetary trip, as this morning Classical Kids explores the galaxy with part of Gustav Holst's Planets Suite. We'll also hear about music that Handel wrote to be played on a boat, while sailing up and down a river.

Sunday January 22nd, 10am

We're celebrating Chinese New Year today, with traditional music played on the erhu. We'll also hear part of the Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra, with Dame Edna giving us an exciting introduction to the different sections and instruments. We'll also hear music by movie music composer John Powell, who wrote exciting music for Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon!

Sunday January 29th, 10am

This morning we’ll hear Prokofiev’s Winter Bonfire, written for the story of a group of Russian boy scouts, the Pioneers, who go on a train journey to the countryside and find a great bonfire. We'll also hear the second part of the Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra read by Dame Edna Everage, and we’ll hear dances by some of the great composers - a waltz by Joann Strauss II, a Spanish dance by Ravel and ballet music by Khachaturian!
