From the Library: The Gentlemen from Vienna

in Daily Programme

by Gabrielle Riel on Thursday, 9 July, 2009

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.

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.
