String Selection

Clas­si­cal orches­tra­tion is often dom­i­nat­ed by stringed instru­ments.

Cel­los, vio­lins, vio­las, bass and gui­tar all con­tribute sig­nif­i­cant air time in clas­si­cal com­po­si­tions. Even today with the advent of elec­tron­ic syn­the­siz­ers, sax­o­phones, and auto­tune (that’s near­ly become an instru­ment by itself), strings are still a dom­i­nant part of the music we lis­ten to.

Today’s From The Library fea­tures an assort­ment of clas­si­cal music fea­tur­ing strings. From cham­ber music to full orches­tra­tion. A lit­tle some­thing for every­one.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gramme now in-world at http://music.radioriel.org, or click one of the but­tons below. Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Edward Pearse.
