From the Library: Virtuoso Composers

The 18th and 19th Cen­turies were not only an era of great com­posers, but they were also an era of great com­posers who were vir­tu­oso per­form­ers.  Today’s pro­gram fea­tures the works of com­posers from the Clas­si­cal and Roman­tic peri­ods who achieved fame dur­ing their lives as vir­tu­oso per­form­ers. We know their names and their music through their writ­ten works; today Radio Riel hon­ors the fol­low­ing com­posers that brought their music to life them­selves: Mozart, Schu­bert, Pagani­ni, Clara Schu­mann, Liszt, Chopin and Rach­mani­noff.

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://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
