La Musique Française

Today we nip across the Chan­nel to 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.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin and pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with our friends at the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme in-world now at, or sim­ply click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so. Lis­ten­ers in the Unit­ed States are encour­aged to tune in using this link:
