Chamber music is a more intimate style of music designed to be played on a small number of instruments, most commonly quartets and trios, in the setting of a Salon or a home. For this reason Chamber Music became known as “the music of friends”. Today’s selection include pieces from Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Handel and others, played on a variety of instruments from String groupings to harpsichord.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at http://music.radioriel.org. Today’s music originates from the music library of Edward Pearse.
