Classics On The Keys

Today 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 orig­i­nal series on places to go and things to see in Sec­ond Life.

In this episode of our bi-week­ly (ie each episode runs for about two weeks) series, hosts Cale­do­nia Sky­tow­er and Elrik Mer­lin dis­cuss the excit­ing new pho­tog­ra­phy gallery opened by long-term SL res­i­dent Ste­vie Basevi.

There are Flickr and group links avail­able on-site if you want to see an even broad­er view of Stevie’s cre­ative work, and stay cur­rent on her exhibitions.

The show goes out at 12 noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific Time.

In addi­tion, tune in every four hours from 4am SLT for a new episode of “The Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity” from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hous­ton — telling the sto­ry of how our cul­ture is formed by human creativity.
