Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning and puts a musical spin on events.

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.

Music with Czech, Spanish and Brazilian roots features among Sarah’s colourful choices today as she explores a wealth of sounds, textures and harmonies.

A lively symphony by Haydn is balanced with a surprisingly modern-sounding Renaissance choral piece by Thomas Tallis, while the viola d’amore and a very special design of lute are among the intriguing sonorities Sarah has on offer. There’ll be expertly interwoven oboe and soprano lines from J.S. Bach and equally mesmerising music from Bach’s musical hero, Buxtehude. Plus skittish chamber music by Cecile Chaminade and some orchestration from Tchaikovsky that Sarah hears as three-dimensional, alongside a touch of award-winning Scottish folk music.
