Piano-issimo — Classical Piano Music

Today we explore the world of classical piano music, including all your favourite piano concertos — Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Gershwin and many more; along with solo piano works by the likes of Faure, Poulenc, Chopin, Debussy and Ravel… and some unusual pieces from lesser-known composers like Louis Moreau Gottschalk and Erik Satie. You’ll also hear some beautiful solo piano improvisations around well-known themes from Gavin Sutherland.

There are also some performances on the Fortepiano — an earlier, similar instrument to the pianoforte we know — and some pieces for Pianola and Reproducing Piano. In addition, we’ve included some beautiful jazz interpretations of classical pieces by the talented, pianocentric David Rees-Williams Trio.

It’s a veritable feast of classical and neo-classical piano music today on Radio Riel, and we do hope you enjoy it.
