Pastorale

Today on Radio Riel’s Main Stream, we present a pro­gramme of music evok­ing the coun­try­side and rur­al life.

Main­ly, but not exclu­sive­ly, clas­si­cal and light clas­si­cal in nature, we’ll hear music like Beethoven’s Pas­toral Sym­pho­ny and the beau­ti­ful but less­er known Sym­pho­ny No 3 from Vaugh­an Williams. There’s The Lark Ascend­ing and many oth­er beau­ti­ful relax­ing clas­sics, and some tune­ful light clas­sics like Ketelbey’s In A Lover’s Gar­den Suite and Paul Reade’s Vic­to­ri­an Kitchen Gar­den Suite. You’ll also hear a num­ber of orches­tral arrange­ments of (main­ly Eng­lish) folk tunes by Vaugh­an Williams, Holst, Tom­lin­son and oth­ers. There are also a few pro­duc­tion music pieces evok­ing pas­toral Eng­land.

In addi­tion, you’ll hear some relax­ing ‘smooth jazz’ and New Age pieces, again with a rur­al air.


Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are tun­ing in from Cana­da or the Unit­ed States, please click here. Oth­er­wise, click here to start your play­er, if your brows­er is con­fig­ured to do so.
