From the Library…The Music of The Nightingale

In hon­or of the first anniver­sary of Radio Riel, today I (Gabrielle Riel) am play­ing “The Music of The Nightingale”…all of my favorite Clas­si­cal pieces and com­posers.

It was with sheer joy that I sat down and thought about all of the Clas­si­cal music that means some­thing to me. When I was done, I had 8.5 hours of music. Look­ing at the playlist, I con­firmed some­thing that I already knew: I am a total *nut* for 20th Cen­tu­ry Clas­si­cal music. 95% of today’s music is just that. You will hear pieces by Gus­tav Holst, Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinksy, Mau­rice Rav­el, Mod­est Mus­sorgsky, Richard Strauss II, Ralph Vaugh­an Williams, John Rut­ter and by my favorite com­pos­er of all time: Aaron Cop­land.

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.
