Recordings for children
Howard Blake's Christmas Classic 'The Snowman' includes the song 'Walking in the Air'.   The delightful children's book by Raymond Briggs is brought to life through music and narration on this CD from the London Philharmonic Orchestra. On the same CD, Paul Patterson's witty settings of two of Roald Dahl's retellings of fairy stories will delight children young and old.

Children’s author Michael Morpurgo is perhaps best known for his book War Horse, which has enjoyed success as a film and on the West End stage. Here the former Children’s Laureate narrates his equally touching book The Mozart Question, an eloquent and ultimately uplifting story charting a small boy’s discovery of his love for the violin, and of his parents’ traumatic past in a concentration camp during the Second World War. This CD weaves together the book’s narration with musical extracts to bring the story alive, featuring pieces by Beethoven, Vivaldi, Bach and Mozart performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
