Game of Thrones

Tomor­row, July 12, the fifth book in the Song of Ice and Fire series byGeorge R. R. Mar­tinA Dance with Drag­ons, releas­es to much fan­fare. Fans of the books have been wait­ing for five years for this moment and the series has recent­ly acquired a whole new legion of fans thanks to the HBO series Game of Thrones.

In hon­or of this, Radio Riel’s Main pro­gram today is a musi­cal trib­ute to the books and the tele­vi­sion show. I (Gabrielle) have includ­ed a wide vari­ety of music that I feel con­nects to sto­ries in sev­er­al ways. You will hear music from the sound­track to the Games of Thrones tele­vi­sion show by Ramin Djawa­di. Also includ­ed are oth­er works by Djawa­di as well as music from some of his fel­low com­posers atRemote Con­trol Pro­duc­tions, such as Hans Zim­mer and Klaus Badelt. You will also hear a mix of Ear­ly Music, Celtic and Folk songs about Kings, Queens and Win­ter. The pro­gram rounds off with some film score music from Fan­ta­sy movies.

I hope that today’s music is an enjoy­able pro­logue for the book release tomor­row. I eager­ly await my copy, which is sched­uled to arrive on my doorstep at some point dur­ing the day tomor­row. If you are a fan, hap­py read­ing and enjoy today’s music!


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.
