Classical orchestration is often dominated by stringed instruments.

Cellos, violins, violas, bass and guitar all contribute significant air time in classical compositions. Even today with the advent of electronic synthesizers, saxophones, and autotune (that’s nearly become an instrument by itself), strings are still a dominant part of the music we listen to.

Today’s From The Library features an assortment of classical music featuring strings. From chamber music to full orchestration. A little something for everyone.

From the Library is produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the programme now in-world at http://music.radioriel.org, or click one of the buttons below. Today’s programme is presented by Edward Pearse.
