From the Library: Happy Birthday Leonard Bernstein!

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