Music of the Classical Period

Joseph Haydn

Radio Riel kicks off your week with a pro­gram of music from com­posers of the Clas­si­cal peri­od of West­ern music (1730 — 1820).

Today’s pro­gram on our main stream fea­tures works from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Rossi­ni, Gluck, Sol­er, Clemen­ti and more. The term “clas­si­cal music” is used to gen­er­al­ly describe West­ern music from the com­mon prac­tice peri­od (1600 — 1900); how­ev­er today’s pro­gram illus­trates the music of the spe­cif­ic era referred to as the Clas­si­cal peri­od. Music of this era is lighter and less com­plex than the music of the Baroque peri­od and it also fea­tures a wider range of con­trasts with key changes and appli­ca­tion of dynam­ics.

Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er . If you are in the Unit­ed States, please use the fol­low­ing link: .
