Discover the marvellous world of classical music with David Walliams!

What's both MARVELLOUS and MUSICAL? David Walliams's Marvellous Musical Podcast, that's what.

You might well have heard of Mozart – and you've definitely heard his music. But did you know that he loved fart jokes and had a pet starling? Or that Beethoven was so scruffy he was once arrested for being a tramp.

And have you heard the story of the ballerina who was so jealous of one of her fellow dancers that she released a flock of chickens during a performance?

Or that Clara Schumann was actually a robot? Wait. That one's not true.

Join David Walliams for a marvellous musical journey and meet some familiar names along the way – from the 19th-century heart throb Franz Liszt to the famously grumpy Ludwig van Beethoven.
