From the Library: Strings to Pluck

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Thursday, 24 June, 2010

Since the dawn of time, people have been stretching strings over some form of wooden frame, and then plucking the strings in order to create music. Today’s program consists of pieces performed by plucked string instruments, such as the guitar, lute, harp and mandolin.  Styles and eras included in today’s program include: Early Music, Baroque, Celtic and Folk.

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 Gabrielle Riel.

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.
