Happy Birthday Dmitri Shostakovich!

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.
