Piano‐issimo — Classical Piano Music

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Wednesday, 15 June, 2011

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.

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.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life.
