Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning.

Sarah Walker chooses three hours of attractive and uplifting music to complement your morning.

Today Sarah plays one of Franz Lehar’s most unforgettable tunes, a Schumann overture inspired by an epic poem by Goethe and a piece that provides a workout for the principal oboist of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra.

Plus a 90 year old jazz standard that never seems to date, in a version by the Tim Richards Trio.
