Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning, and puts a musical spin on events.
This morning Sarah discovers the mesmerising sound of Voces8 singing a modern version of an ancient Advent carol, uncovers the antics of Richard Strauss’s anti-hero Till Eulenspiegel condensed into a nine-minute dramatic romp for five instruments, and explores Gaelic myths swathed in the mists of time as pictured by the Danish composer Niels Gade. Plus a frisky piece by the first female professor at the Paris Conservatoire and a waltz to mark the start of the skating season.
At 10.30am Sarah welcomes film critic (and self-confessed lapsed bassoonist) Robbie Collin into the studio for a monthly arts roundup focussing 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 available on iPlayer.
