Sunday 15 December
Join Catherine for a snow-sprinkled evening of discovery on Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Classical Music, as she answers a seasonal question: what is the ‘sound’ of Christmas?
From the bells-and-whistles of the Sleigh Ride by Leroy Anderson, to Rimsky-Korsakov's Christmas Eve Suite, and a recording of ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ performed by the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, Catherine explores how this wonderful music puts us in the Christmas spirit.
