Main: Classics on the Keys

Today we present a pro­gramme of clas­si­cal and clas­si­cal-influ­enced key­board music, fea­tur­ing  a num­ber of instru­ments but espe­cial­ly the piano.

You’ll hear a wealth of key­board pieces — pri­mar­i­ly on piano and harp­si­chord, but with oth­er tra­di­tion­al key­board instru­ments too — both solo and with oth­er musi­cal forces back­ing them.

We’ll also be fea­tur­ing the beau­ti­ful recent album release of piano minia­tures by Richard Har­vey, per­formed by John Lene­han: Scé­nar­ios.

The main spread of the pro­gramme encom­pass­es the Baroque and Clas­si­cal peri­ods, but you’ll also hear some more mod­ern pieces includ­ing treat­ments of clas­si­cal pieces, and some engag­ing lit­tle 19th cen­tu­ry pieces that are less well-known. Most of the time, there is a clas­si­cal or baroque link in there some­where, even if it’s not imme­di­ate­ly obvi­ous.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin from our stu­dios in NE Scot­land.  Click here to start your play­er if your brows­er is set up to pass streams to an exter­nal play­er or can play audio streams direct (many can).
