From the Library: The Gentlemen from Vienna

The point is not to take the world’s opin­ion as a guid­ing star but to go one’s way in life and work­ing unerr­ing­ly, nei­ther depressed by fail­ure nor seduced by applause.

~ Gus­tav Mahler

July 7, 2010 was the 150th anniver­sary of the birth of the com­pos­er Gus­tav Mahler.  Mahler was one of many 18th and 19th Cen­tu­ry com­posers who were from, and pri­mar­i­ly based in, Vien­na, Aus­tria.

Today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is a mix of music from Vien­na’s Clas­si­cal com­posers, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schu­bert, and its Roman­tic Com­posers, Brahms and Mahler.

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://music.radioriel.org . 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.
