Today’s pro­gramme takes us back to the end of the 18th and the begin­ning of the 19th cen­turies, with music from the time of nov­el­ist Jane Austen (1775–1817) and the painter (Thomas) Gains­bor­ough (1728–1788) — in oth­er words, music that takes us from the late Baroque to the ear­ly Clas­si­cal peri­od.

Keyboard Classics

Today on Radio Riel’s Main Stream we present a wealth of key­board pieces — pri­mar­i­ly on piano, organ and harp­si­chord, but you’ll hear some oth­er tra­di­tion­al key­board instru­ments too — both solo and with oth­er musi­cal forces back­ing them.
