From the Library: La Musique Française

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 25 February, 2009

Today we continue the French influence but in a manner far distant from the music of Mardi Gras. Instead in today’s programme we can 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.

From the Library is produced in conjunction with the Caledon Library; today’s programme was produced by Elrik Merlin. You can listen to it on our Main Stream as follows:
