6. Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and Haydn - part 1
Exploring great composers with songs based on some of their most famous melodies.
We travel to Germany in 1722 to hear Johann Sebastian Bach playing one of his famous harpsichord pieces, which listeners join in with to sing 'Listen to the music clock'.
Then we move forward in time to Italy in 1725, where we hear music from Antonio Vivaldi’s 'The Seasons', which becomes the melody for the song 'Seasons change the weather'.
