Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.
An elegant early symphony from a composer who also happened to be King George III’s astronomer, pearly piano sounds from young pianist Yeol Eum Son performing some rarely played Mozart, and an orchestral painting of woods and fields in old Bohemia. Plus a sonata by Francis Poulenc that Sarah has played herself on both flute and piano.
Further afield Sarah finds Brazilian bossa nova meeting the mesmeric repetitions of Steve Reich’s music, and three trumpets playing JS Bach are followed a little later on by the unique sound of trumpeter Miles Davis in a moment from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess.
