Saturday July 30th

The word 'concerto' means to come together in harmony, but also to fight against each other! This morning we'll hear concertos that feature solo instruments with orchestra; all playing their own part but also coming together to form one great concerto. Tune in to hear a Trumpet Concerto by Haydn, a Piano Concerto by Rachmaninov, a Violin Concerto by Mendelssohn and a Clarinet Concerto by Mozart. We'll also hear the story of the Three Little PIgs read by Rosaleen Linehan.

Sunday July 31st

When the French composer Darius Milhaud visited America, he heard jazz music for the very first time and liked it so much, he used so started to write in that style. On Sunday we'll hear the Scaramouche Suite and part of his Carnival for London and we'll visit some wonderful wizards with music from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and The Sorceror's Apprentice by Paul Dukas... 

Sunday August 7th

Last week, we met Paddington Bear for the first time and learnt how we travelled from far Peru to live with the Brown family in London. But this morning Paddington is off to his first classical music concert with Herr Gruber, and so we'll join him at the Royal Albert Hall. We'll also hear part of Beethoven's beautiful Pastoral Symphony which he wrote about one of his favourite things to do - going for a walk in the countryside!

As Poulenc was sitting at his piano one day, a little girl handed him a story book and asked him to play it-and he did-so we'll hear his Babar the Elephant this Sunday!
