Pastorale

Today on Radio Riel, as we move into the New Year and the nights begin to be just a little shorter, we present a programme of music evoking the countryside and rural life.

Mainly, but not exclusively, classical in nature, we’ll hear music like Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony and the beautiful but lesser known Symphony No 3, “Pastoral”, from Vaughan Williams. There’s The Lark Ascending and many other beautiful relaxing classics – and some lighter orchestral pieces like Ketelbey’s In A Lover’s Garden Suite.

In addition, you’ll hear some relaxing ‘smooth jazz’ and New Age pieces, again with a country air.

Relax with us today and enjoy the varied sounds of the countryside.
