Pastorale

Today on Radio Riel, on the verge of Thanks­giv­ing in the US and with Win­ter approach­ing, 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 nice frothy light clas­sics 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.

So as the week turns and we head down towards the week­end, enjoy the var­ied sounds of the coun­try­side.
