in Daily Programme

Pastorale

Today on Radio Riel, as many parts of the Northern Hemisphere are covered with snow, we present a programme of music evoking the countryside and rural life.

Mainly, but not exclusively, classical in nature, we’ll hear music like Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony and the beautiful but lesser known Symphony No 3, “Pastoral”, from Vaughan Williams. There’s The Lark Ascending and many other beautiful relaxing classics – and some lighter orchestral pieces like Ketelbey’s In A Lover’s Garden Suite.

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

Relax with us today and enjoy the varied sounds of the countryside.


Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin from our studios in NE Scotland.  Click here to start your player if your browser is set up to pass streams to an external player or can play audio streams direct (many can).
