Keyboard Classics

Today on Radio Riel’s Main Stream we present a wealth of keyboard pieces — primarily on piano, harpsichord and organ, but you’ll hear some other traditional keyboard instruments too — both solo and with other musical forces backing them. And today we are featuring a wonderful album of organ music by Marie‐Claire Alain, Great Toccatas, including the fabulous Suite Gothique by Leon Boellmann.

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.
