Almanac

1850 Zdenek Fibich - Czech composer and music critic (d.1900); much less well-known contemporary of Smetana and Dvorák who never fully embraced Czech nationalism as his more famous colleagues did.

1890 first performance of the final version of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 3 in Vienna, Hans Richter conducting; dedicated to Richard Wagner and sometimes known as the ‘Wagner Symphony’.

1934 first performance of Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kijé Suite on a Moscow radio broadcast; exists in two versions, one using a baritone voice and the other using a saxophone; based on score for a satirical film lampooning bureaucracies. 

1940 Frank Zappa – American musician, bandleader, songwriter, composer, recording engineer, record producer, and film director (d.1993); while in his teens, acquired a taste for 20th-century classical composers such as Edgard Varèse, Igor Stravinsky, and Anton Webern, along with 1950s rhythm and blues music; began writing classical music in high school.

1944 Michael Tilson Thomas - American conductor, pianist and composer (70 years old); music director of the San Francisco Symphony, and artistic director of the New World Symphony which he founded in Florida in 1987; leads a series of education programs titled Keeping Score which offers insight into the lives and works of great composers.

1953 András Schiff - Hungarian pianist and conductor (61 years old); an outspoken critic of the Hungarian government of Viktor Orbán, stating in January 2012 that he would never again set foot in his native country.

1972 Erwin Schrott - Uruguayan bass-baritone (42 years old); particularly known for his interpretation of the title role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni; until 2013, the partner of the Russian soprano Anna Netrebko.

Note About Listings

All radio stations with an Internet audio stream have to compensate Sound Exchange, an organization under the US Copyright Office, for the right to stream commercial recordings. This money finds its way to musicians, by way of record labels. One of the regulations established by Sound Exchange is that stations cannot publish in advance details about streamed commercial recordings. Therefore, WCLV posts on the first business day following an "as played" log of commercial recordings we streamed complete with composer, work, artists, record label and number, plus time of airing and duration. The accuracy and detail of this information is unprecedented for WCLV. To identify music in real time, refer to the "On Air Now" box on the front page of the WCLV website or to car radios with Radio Data Systems (RDS). We continue to list in advance programs of live music and pre-recorded concerts.
