The sound of strings, from violin and cello all the way through to the double bass. Often associated with the “classical” period of music — that of the Eighteenth and early 19th century, the classical sound has influenced everything from buskers to motion picture sound tracks.

Today’s programme features performances from the works of Beethoven, Paganini, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Sibelius, Bach and a variety of other composers of the period. Something soothing while you work.

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.

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.
