From the Library…Samuel Barber

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Monday, 9 March, 2009

Today Radio Riel celebrates the 99th birthday of Samuel Barber (born March 9, 1910), the American, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer of Modern American Classical music in the 20th Century.

Barber was a triple musical genius, specializing in Composition, Piano and Voice. I have, of course, included his most famous piece, Adagio for Strings, in the program today, as well as his Symphonies, Concertos and works for piano.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Caledon Library in Second Life. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more information on the Caledon Library, current exhibits and the work of Second Life reference libraries in general, please visit the Caledon Library Web site, or one of their locations in-world.

You can listen to the program now at, or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player.
