Music from the Grand Hotel: Viennese Nights

And now we take you to the Palm Court of the Grand Hotel… as the announc­er used to say, intro­duc­ing a pro­gramme of fine light clas­si­cal and dance music from the Grand Hotel in East­bourne, on Britain’s South Coast.

Today on Radio Riel’s main stream, we take you back to the dance-halls, hotel lounges and ocean lin­ers of the ear­ly to mid­dle 20th Cen­tu­ry, char­ac­terised by the BBC radio series, Grand Hotel. We’ll also be hear­ing some clas­sic big-band record­ings and much more.

As we’re still close to New Year, today’s pro­gramme has a dis­tinct Vien­nese flavour, with waltzes, polkas and oth­er clas­sic dance tunes from the Strauss fam­i­ly and many oth­ers.

The pro­gramme includes a mix­ture of orig­i­nal peri­od record­ings and mod­ern per­for­mances.
