Sarah Walker with Haydn, Elgar and Sir John Tavener

Sarah Walker with a broad range of music, including works by Haydn, Elgar, Faure and Weber. Her Sunday Escape features music by Sir John Tavener.

In today’s shorter than usual programme, Sarah Walker’s Sunday morning selection includes Haydn’s Symphony No 38 in C. There’s also contrastingly different music from Elgar in the 1870s and Faure in 1909. Plus Weber takes us to the opera house with the sparkling overture to Euryanthe. The Sunday Escape features music by Sir John Tavener.
