Classics On The Keys

Today, Wednes­day Jan­u­ary 18, we present a wealth of key­board pieces — pri­mar­i­ly on piano, harp­si­chord and organ, but you’ll hear some oth­er tra­di­tion­al key­board instru­ments too — both solo and with oth­er musi­cal forces back­ing them.

The main spread of the pro­gramme encom­pass­es the Baroque and Clas­si­cal peri­ods, but you’ll also hear some more mod­ern pieces includ­ing treat­ments of clas­si­cal pieces, and some engag­ing lit­tle 19th cen­tu­ry pieces that are less well-known. Most of the time, there is a clas­si­cal or baroque link in there some­where, even if it’s not imme­di­ate­ly obvious.

Then tune in at 12 noon or 4pm Pacif­ic Time to catch a repeat of a past edi­tion of Where’ve You Been? — our twice-month­ly show on places to go and things to see in Sec­ond Life. In this episode, we are re-vis­it­ing an old friend of ours — The Elven For­est. It’s a very long estab­lished des­ti­na­tion that is always worth a vis­it if you are into mys­ti­cal forests and myth­i­cal crea­tures. It’s home to elves, fae, fairy, drow, fauns, satyrs, mer, cen­taurs, drag­ons, nymphs, wiz­ards, dryads & petites — and more! It clas­si­fies itself as a “Role Play Light” region: there may be role­play in progress, but par­tic­i­pa­tion in it is not required. It’s been around for ages, and they have a wide buf­fet of dif­fer­ent set­tings, and a pret­ty active com­mu­ni­ty fea­tur­ing dance par­ties most weekends.
