Piano-issimo — Classical Piano Music

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, pianocen­tric 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.
