Pastorale

Today — with Spring well under way in the North­ern Hemi­sphere —  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.

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

The ZBS Radio Hour

Then join us at 11am or 7pm Pacif­ic Day­light Time — which cor­re­sponds to 18:00 or 02:00 GMT until the end of the month — for the lat­est install­ments of our excit­ing radio ser­i­al from ZBS Foun­da­tion. Tune in for Episodes 9 and 10 of the clas­sic radio ser­i­al, the Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness, as we remem­ber the late Robert Lorick who played Jack Flan­ders in 4th Tow­er, and recent­ly passed away.
