Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.
Contrasting sounds, colours and moods are all in the spotlight as Sarah brings us the magical sound of Mozart’s music for glass harmonica and characterful writing for wind instruments by the Russian master tune-smith Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, plus music by Wagner that includes a surprising ingredient: castanets. There are intriguing pieces from lesser known composers, George Muffat, Otto Mortensen and Attilio Ariosti. Plus a touch of jazz, as a song by Vincent Youmans is given an irresistible twist by Rose Murphy.
At 10.30am Sarah welcomes writer and broadcaster Nick Ahad to the studio for a monthly arts roundup focusing on five cultural happenings around the UK, from film, theatre and visual art, to dance and TV - including the rediscovery of a classic BBC Arts documentary.
