Sarah Walker with Mendelssohn, Janacek, and Grovlez

Sarah Walker's Sunday Morning selection includes music by Mendelssohn, Janacek, Grovlez and Merula. This week's Sunday Escape is Smetana's Vltava.

Sarah Walker's Sunday morning selection includes music by such well-known figures as Felix Mendelssohn and Leoš Janáček, as well as the somewhat lesser-known composers Gabriel Grovlez and Tarquinio Merula. There's an unexpected gem from Malcolm Arnold, and this week's Sunday Escape is Smetana's Vltava.
