The Countryside in Autumn

Today on Radio Riel, we present a pro­gramme of music evok­ing the coun­try­side and rur­al life and espe­cial­ly at this time of year.

The pro­gramme fea­tures clas­si­cal, light clas­si­cal and light music, with a few addi­tion­al gen­res — such as New Age and “smooth jazz” slipped in there for good mea­sure, to pro­vide a relax­ing day’s lis­ten­ing. You’ll hear music like Beethoven’s Pas­toral Sym­pho­ny and the beau­ti­ful but less­er known Sym­pho­ny No 3 from Vaugh­an Williams. There’s The Lark Ascend­ing and many oth­er beau­ti­ful and relax­ing clas­sics.
