Today we nip across the Channel to feast our ears on the music of some of the most memorable of French composers.

We will be including works by Rameau, a personal favourite, as well as Debussy, Ravel, Poulenc, Fauré (another favourite), Satie, Berlioz and Chopin.

Most of the performances are traditional, but there will be some modern interpretations too, such as the music of Isao Tomita and some light jazz.

The picture shows one of Monet’s many paintings of the Japanese Bridge in his garden at Giverny.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with our friends at the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life.
