Happy Halloween!

1806 Louise Talma - American composer (d.1896); first woman to receive two Guggenheim Fellowships and to be elected to the National Institute of Arts and Letters; also the first American woman to have a full-scale opera performed in Germany and the first American to teach at Fontainebleau.

1866 premiere of Jacques Offenbach’s operetta La vie parisienne (Parisian life) at the Théâtre du Palais Royal; composer’s first full-length piece to portray contemporary Parisian life, unlike his earlier period pieces and mythological subjects, and became one of his most popular operettas.

1875 premiere of Camille Saint-Saëns’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in Paris at a concert with the composer as soloist and the orchestra led by Edouard Colonne; the composer’s most structurally innovative piano concerto and second in popularity only to the Piano Concerto No. 2.

1887 Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnole in St. Petersburg with Richard Strauss conducting; the composer wrote, “The opinion formed by both critics and the public, that the Capriccio is a magnificently orchestrated piece — is wrong. The Capriccio is a brilliant composition for the orchestra. The change of timbres, the felicitous choice of melodic designs and figuration patterns, exactly suiting each kind of instrument, brief virtuoso cadenzas for instruments solo, the rhythm of the percussion instruments, etc., constitute here the very essence of the composition and not its garb or orchestration.”

1891 premiere of Pietro Mascagni’s opera L’amico Fritz at the Teatro Costanzi in Rome; enjoyed some success in its day but is not staged nearly as often as Mascagni’s Cavalleria rusticana.

1932 premiere of Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 5 by the Berlin Philharmonic, Wilhelm Furtwängler conducting and the composer as soloist; original title was Music for Piano and Orchestra.

1949 Odaline de la Martinez - Cuban-American composer and conductor (65 years old); artistic director of Lontano, a London-based contemporary music ensemble which she co-founded in 1976.

1955 premiere of Alan Hovhaness’s Symphony No. 2 ‘Mysterious Mountain’ by Leopold Stokowski in his debut with the Houston Symphony; work is notable for a pervasive sense of spiritual serenity and is the composer’s best-known and most popular work.

21:00 MAD ABOUT MUSIC with Gilbert Kaplan and former Chief Executive of Sony Sir Howard Stringer - on his trumpet solo mistake: “By the time I was seventeen, I was first trumpet in the school orchestra and we were going to be recorded playing the Messiah and obviously the trumpet part in the Messiah is quite tricky. I played the solo, “The trumpet shall sound,” and I had played it in rehearsal that morning and I got it perfectly. And then [in the concert] came the moment when I stood up to play the solo for “The trumpet shall sound” and I got half way through it and I blew up. My lip went. I just sagged. And it was heartbreaking.”

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.
