Monday - Sara Mohr-Pietsch

2 hours, 30 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 10 December 2012

Sara Mohr-Pietsch presents Radio 3's classical breakfast show.

As December progresses, plenty of festival music and surprises.

From 15th December, the BBC Singers will be specially recording carols - some of them requested by our listeners.

There's the Breakfast Advent Calendar - opening a door every day to reveal winter music and readings chosen by listeners and presenters.

Closer to Christmas, listeners will have the chance to send a Breakfast Christmas Card by requesting a piece of music and dedicating it to a friend.

And in Your Call where we hear from our audience about their favourite pieces of music, there's the chance to introduce a favourite piece of music to the rest of the UK. In the run up to Christmas we'll be hearing about music that reminds listeners of the festive season.
