    We're on holidays in sunny Spain this week, and we'll hear music by Falla and Rodrigo. We'll also hear music that football fans will know very well, by George Frideric Handel!

    Sunday August 2nd
    We'll hear music inspired by visits to different countries around the world today - the Brazilian Scaramouche Suite by Milhaud, the New World Symphony by Dvorak and the Hebrides Overture by Mendelssohn. We'll also listen to 'Songs Before Sleep' by Richard Rodney Bennett, a collection of beautiful new versions of our favourite nursery rhymes including Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star.

    Sunday August 9th
    Ferde Grofe worked as a milkman, a truck driver and an elevator operator before becoming a piano player in a bar and eventually a composer. His first big success was arranging Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue for orchestra, but on Sunday we'll hear part of his Grand Canyon Suite, which includes music written for a thunderstorm. We’ll also hear music played by some of the percussion instruments, including a xylophone.
