Happy Birthday Dmitri Shostakovich!

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Sunday, 25 September, 2011

On this day in 1906, in Saint Petersburg, Russia, composer Dmitri Shostakovich was born.

In honor of this, today’s program on Radio Riel’s Main Stream features the works of some of Russia’s greatest composers of the 19th and 20th centuries. Today you will hear pieces by Rachmaninoff, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Rimsky‐Korsakov, Mussorgsky and of course the birthday boy, Shostakovich himself.

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://loudcity.com/stations/radio-riel. Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
