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.

Sarah discovers the strength and sweetness of great close harmony in performances by vocal groups from Norway and New York, and plays a classic recording of Bach’s second Brandenburg Concerto. She also finds a piece by Debussy that’s been treated to a magical orchestration by Percy Grainger.

Plus André Previn combines his skills as both pianist and conductor in a celebrated rendition with the London Symphony Orchestra of George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue.
