Der Maestro!

Dur­ing his life­time Beethoven’s influ­ence on Clas­si­cal Music was so great that he was referred to as “The Mae­stro”. Despite lat­er deaf­ness and social tur­moil he is today one of the most recog­nised com­posers in the world, his 5th Sym­pho­ny open­ing pos­si­bly being THE most recog­nis­able musi­cal phrase ever.

Today’s broad­cast fea­tures his sym­phonies, as well as a selec­tion of con­cer­tos and bet­ter known piano pieces.

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.
