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

Today, Radio Riel fea­tures com­posers who were from, and pri­mar­i­ly based in, Vien­na, Aus­tria in hon­or of Gus­tav Mahler’s 149th birth­day this week. (July 7) This pro­gram is a mix of the Clas­si­cal (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schu­bert) and the Roman­tic (Brahms, Mahler).

Also, we will be paus­ing the Vien­nese Com­posers pro­gram today at 1:00pm SLT and 6:00pm SLT for Charles Goun­od’s clas­sic opera “Faust”. This is a part of our spe­cial Faust pro­gram­ming that we have this week, lead­ing into the Cale­don Library Book of the Month broad­cast on Faust this Sun­day.

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.
