Main: Music from the Titanic

in Daily Programme

by rieladmin on Saturday, 14 April, 2012

For the past several months the world has been preparing for the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. For example, director/producer James Cameron has re-released the 1997 film in 3D. Additionally, I (Gabrielle) am extremely lucky to have The Henry Ford Museum in my neighborhood so I can attend its current special exhibition of Titanic artifacts.

The Titanic sank on April 15, 1912, and our program on Radio Riel’s Main stream will feature music from that era all weekend. You will hear vintage recordings produced during the first two decades of the 20th Century, ragtime piano, arrangements of popular songs for small orchestras…and yes, a few songs from the soundtrack to the 1997 movie.

As the world remembers those that were lost on that day, Radio Riel would like to specifically honor the musicians of the Titanic, none of whom survived: Wallace Hartley (bandmaster, violin), Roger Marie Bricoux (cello), Theodore Ronald Brailey (piano), John Wesley Woodward (cello), John Frederick Preston Clarke (string bass, viola), John Law Hume (violin), Percy Cornelius Taylor (piano) and Georges Alexandré Krins (violin).

Today’s program is presented by Gabrielle Riel. To listen, click here to start your player . If you are in the United States, please use the following link: .
