Music can name the unnameable and communicate the unknowable. ~ Leonard Bernstein

Today on Radio Riel’s Main stream, we celebrate the birthday of American composer Leonard Bernstein, who was born on August 25, 1918.  The program features his work as both a composer and a conductor of other composers’ works.  It also includes music from other prominent 20th Century American composers such as Samuel Barber, and Bernstein’s mentor and friend Aaron Copland.  Happy Birthday Lenny!

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.
