Monday - Sarah Walker

Classical Collection with Sarah Walker. Today we begin a series of recordings from Simon Rattle, our new Artist of the Week. As the week unfolds we will hear him in some well loved pieces including Debussy's La Mer, Janacek's Sinfonietta and Brahms' Third Symphony. Today however we will start a little closer to home, with The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams and Britten's Suite on English Folk Tunes.
