Elgar, Walton and Britten

In hon­or of Sir William Wal­ton’s 109th birth­day tomor­row, today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream focus­es on his music, as well as the music of the two oth­er Eng­lish com­posers that “stood” on either side of him in the 20th Cen­tu­ry: Sir Edward Elgar, who was most active and promi­nent in the ear­ly 20th Cen­tu­ry,  and Sir Ben­jamin Brit­ten, who achieved recog­ni­tion and respect in the last half of it. Sir William’s works are pri­mar­i­ly mid 20th Cen­tu­ry, as his career began in the 1920s and spanned 60 years.

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://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
