Europa Wulfenbach Map

It’s time for Radio Riel to cel­e­brate gas-lamp fan­ta­sy! Today’s pro­gram fea­tures clas­si­cal music from com­posers who would have lived with­in the bor­ders of the fic­tion­al nation of Europa Wulfen­bach, which is part of the Girl Genius uni­verse. Girl Genius is the pop­u­lar web-com­ic by Phil and Kaja Foglio.

Here is a descrip­tion of Europa Wulfen­bach as defined in the Girl Genius Wikia:

Much of Europa falls with­in the Empire ruled by Baron Klaus Wulfen­bach. He main­tains the lands bound­ed rough­ly by the Rhine/Rhone/Saone riv­er-cours­es on the west; the Alps and Adri­at­ic Sea to the south, dip­ping down to include Lom­bardy and oth­er lands north of the Po, and the port of Mar­seilles; the North and Baltic Seas to the north (does not include the Dan­ish penin­su­la but stops at Hol­fung-Bor­zoi), and does not quite reach the Sea of Azov but does reach the Black Sea along the Bogdanian/Moldavian coast to the east, con­trol­ling most of the Danube delta.

Today’s pro­gram con­tains music from the Baroque, Clas­si­cal and Mod­ern eras. You will hear pieces from the fol­low­ing com­posers: Strauss, Bux­te­hude, Pachel­bel, Froberg­er, Schenck, Bach, Tele­mann, Schu­mann, Schu­bert, Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, Brahms, Bar­tok, Dvo­rak and more.

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: .
