Today on Radio Riel, 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 from Vaughan Williams. There’s The Lark Ascending and many other beautiful relaxing classics and some nice frothy light classics 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.

So as the week turns and we head down towards the weekend, enjoy the varied sounds of the countryside.
