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).
