Sarah Walker with Grieg, Haydn and Kodaly

Sarah Walker and music with a Norwegian flavour.

In Sarah Walker's selection of music today, she focuses on Norwegian music with the 'ancient-meets-modern' sounds of the Nils Ølkand Band, plus piano music from Edvard Grieg. We also hear Haydn's string quartet in D Minor, Opus 76 no 2, 'Fifths', and varied dances from William Lawes and Zoltan Kodaly.
