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.

Classical Landscapes

Sat­ur­day, Jan­u­ary 14th: Today’s pro­gramme, “Clas­si­cal Land­scapes”, con­sists of music from some of the Great Mas­ters of Clas­si­cal and Roman­tic music (and a few from the Baroque), includ­ing Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and many more.

Sit back and enjoy some of the great­est music ever writ­ten, per­formed by the lead­ing orches­tras and solo per­form­ers of the world.

“Where Have You Been?”, where we sug­gest things to do and places to vis­it around the Sec­ond Life Grid, will be back for a new series in March. In the mean­time we’ll be re-broad­cast­ing a few pro­grammes from Series 2, start­ing with Seren­i­ty Val­ley (S02E08). While “WYB” includes quite a few time-relat­ed items like gallery exhi­bi­tions and places based around the time of year, there are some places we’ve vis­it­ed which are longer-term in scope and we’ll be revis­it­ing a few of them in the show’s reg­u­lar times­lots of 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT, on Wednes­days and Saturdays.

You can also hear “Engines of Our Inge­nu­ity” at the usu­al time, every 4 hours from 4am Pacific.

La Musique Classique Française

Join us today for a pro­gramme of French clas­si­cal music from a wide vari­ety of com­posers, pri­mar­i­ly from the 18th and 19th cen­turies, includ­ing a nice col­lec­tion of the works of Erik Satie that goes well beyond the Gymnopédies. Most of the com­posers today are pret­ty well-known, but keep your ears open for things like the Euro­vi­sion theme — actu­al­ly Extrait du Te Deum by Char­p­en­tier — and oth­er good­ies. There is some gor­geous music in today’s pro­gramme and we do hope you enjoy it.

Sounding Brass

Today’s pro­gramme — Wednes­day April 20th — focus­es on brass instru­ments, with gen­res that range from Ear­ly Music to con­tem­po­rary pieces.

Thus the gen­res range from ancient and ear­ly music, through Baroque and clas­si­cal, to Vic­to­ri­an brass bands, to rag­time, trad jazz, a touch of big band, right up to mod­ern works includ­ing a mar­vel­lous suite of pieces for wind band inspired by the works of Shakespeare.

This will all lead to some remark­able jux­ta­po­si­tions — and a few surprises.
