Rameau and his contemporaries

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 24 September, 2011

Tomorrow, September 25, marks the birthday of Jean-Philippe Rameau in Dijon in 1683.

He was one of the most important French composers and music theorists of the Baroque era, replacing Jean-Baptiste Lully as the dominant composer of French opera.

Today we’ll be hearing his music, and the music of his contemporaries across the Channel and elsewhere in Europe.

Then join us at 7pm or 3am UK time — 11am and 7pm Pacific Time — for the latest instalments of our award-winning radio drama serials in the ZBS Radio HourTravels with Jack at the top of the hour, followed by some more stories from Saratoga Springs at half-past.

Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in conjunction with our friends at the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the programme in-world now at http://main.radioriel.org, or simply click here to start your player, if your browser is configured to do so.
