The Gentlemen from Vienna

The point is not to take the world’s opinion as a guiding star but to go one’s way in life and working unerringly, neither depressed by failure nor seduced by applause. —Gustav Mahler

Vien­na, Aus­tria was prob­a­bly the most pow­er­ful and influ­en­tial city in regards to clas­si­cal music in the 18th and 19th Cen­turies, as it was the home to some of the most famous com­posers of those eras, and of today!

Vien­na claimed the Clas­si­cal com­posers Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schu­bert all as res­i­dents dur­ing their pro­fes­sion­al lives. Dur­ing the Roman­tic peri­od, Brahms, Mahler and Johann Strauss Jr. lived there. Today’s pro­gram on Radio Riel’s Main stream is a mix of music from these Clas­si­cal and Roman­tic com­posers, “The Gen­tle­men from Vien­na”.


Radio Riel pro­duces this pro­gram in con­junc­tion with the Alexan­dri­an Free Library Con­sor­tium of Sec­ond Life. You can lis­ten to the pro­gram now at http://main.radioriel.org. Today’s music orig­i­nates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.
