From the Library: A Baroque Extravaganza

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 2 January, 2010

Today, Elrik Merlin presents a programme of Baroque works from a varied range of composers including Bach, Handel, Rameau, Arne and others, including performances of all kinds from solo instrumentalists to chamber groups to full orchestral ensembles.

You'll hear recorder concertos from Vivaldi, keyboard variations from Bach and the original setting of Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks and both Water Music suites.

In addition we will be playing some modern pieces inspired by the Baroque, including a few jazz-influenced settings of works by Bach and Purcell.

We'll also be telling you about a forthcoming new regular feature of Saturdays on Radio Riel, starting on January 16th: The ZBS Radio Hour, where we'll be playing some simply wonderful radio serials from our friends at ZBS Foundation – at both US- and EU-friendly times.

From the Library is produced in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life, and today's programme was produced by Elrik Merlin. You can listen to the program now at http://main.radioriel.org .

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
