Happy Birthday William Shakespeare!


Wel­come to a Sun­day of Shake­speare!

Today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s main stream is in hon­or of the 450th birth­day of William Shake­speare. You will hear music based on his works from across the Com­mon Prac­tice peri­od as well as from the 20th Cen­tu­ry. You will also hear selec­tions from many of his plays, includ­ing The Tem­pest, Romeo and Juli­et and A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Dream.

In addi­tion to today’s gen­er­al pro­gram, Gabrielle Riel presents a spe­cial broad­cast, “The Shake­speare Ball”,  this evening from 6:00pm — 7:30pm North Amer­i­can Pacif­ic time.

The man that hath no music in him­self, Nor is not moved with con­cord of sweet sounds, Is fit for trea­sons, strat­a­gems, and spoils; The motions of his spir­it are dull as night, And his affec­tions dark as Ere­bus. Let no such man be trust­ed. Mark the music.

William Shake­speare, The Tem­pest
