Piano‐issimo — Classical Piano Music

in Daily Programme, Radio Riel Main

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 20 March, 2013

Today we explore the world of classical piano music, including all your favourite piano concertos — Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Gershwin and many more; along with solo piano works by the likes of Faure, Poulenc, Chopin, Debussy and Ravel… and some unusual pieces from lesser‐known composers like Louis Moreau Gottschalk and Erik Satie. You’ll also hear some beautiful solo piano improvisations around well‐known themes from Gavin Sutherland.

There are also some performances on the Fortepiano — an earlier, similar instrument to the pianoforte we know — and some pieces for Pianola and Reproducing Piano. In addition, we’ve included some beautiful jazz interpretations of classical pieces by the talented David Rees‐Williams Trio.

It’s a veritable feast of classical and neo‐classical piano music today on Radio Riel, and we do hope you enjoy it.

And don’t forget to join us for Zeeber Gold, the latest in our series of interview with the movers and shakers of the 60s and 70s, at 11am or 7pm Pacific — which is 18:00 or 02:00 GMT (See separate entry).

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel.
