Kids clar­ify their clas­sics

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - irish­­icket/

A re­cent poll con­ducted by Clas­sic FM re­vealed that the theme from the Harry Pot­ter films is the most pop­u­lar piece of clas­si­cal mu­sic with chil­dren. The John Wil­liams-com­posed piece trumped com­po­si­tions by Sergei Prokofiev (who had three en­tries in the top 10 alone) as well as works by Pachel­bel, El­gar and Tchaikovsky. Com­ing in at sec­ond place was Howard Blake’s Walk­ing in the Air from The Snow­man.
