From the Library: Modern Classical Music

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