From the Library: La Musique Française

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:
