From the Library: Happy Birthday Igor Stravinsky!

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Thursday, 18 June, 2009

Curses on you Google for stealing my thunder on this program and designing your logo in honor of Mr. Stravinsky‚Äôs birthday yesterday! ūüôā Each week, I run a quick check in ‚ÄúThis Week in Music History‚ÄĚ to find inspiration for my programs. I was thrilled to discover that this week was the anniversary of the birth of one of my favorite composers: Igor Stravinsky. So, in honor of Mr. Stravinsky‚Äôs birth date, June 17, 1882, our program today is a retrospective of this brilliant 20th Century composer‚Äôs works.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at . 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.
