From the Library: Modern Classical Music

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Wednesday, 20 January, 2010

Today’s program on Radio Riel features Modern Classical Music, which is not exactly “modern” in a literal sense.  The pieces you will hear today were composed 50–100 years ago by extraordinary and visionary composers who pushed the boundaries into atonal and dissonant music.  Some of the composers on today’s program are as follows:

  • Aaron Copland
  • Alberto Ginastera
  • Claude Debussy
  • Carl Orff
  • Dmitri Shostakovitch
  • Erik Satie
  • Frederick Delius
  • Gustav Holst
  • Igor Stravinsky
  • Maurice Ravel
  • Modest Mussorgsky
  • Percy Grainger
  • Ralph Vaughn-Williams

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.
