    Classical Kids

    We'll hear music performed by some woodwind instruments today, plus some nursery rhymes sung by the King's Singers and music composed by the Red Priest!

    Sunday April 19th
    Classical Kids explores time and space this morning! First we'll listen to The Clock Symphony by Haydn, and then take a trip across the stars with music by John Williams. We'll also learn about Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan, about a Tsar who rules an island full of enchanted objects and animals, and we'll hear the music including the Flight of the Bumblebee. 

    Sunday April 26th
    William Walton wrote a set of piano pieces for his niece Elizabeth to play but they were too difficult for her, so he re-wrote them as duets for her to play with her brother Michael. We'll hear some of his Music for Children this morning, including Hop-Scotch and The Three-Legged Race. We'll also hear music that George Gershwin wrote for the cities of New York and Paris.
