1661 death of Louis Couperin, French composer, harpsichordist, organist, and violist, in Paris (age c.35); his brother, Charles Couperin (1638-1679) was also a composer, as was his nephew, the famous François Couperin (1668-1733).
1853 Henry Granger Hanchett - American organist and inventor of the piano sustaining pedal (d.1918).
1882 unofficial premiere of Johannes Brahms’s Piano Trio in C Op 87, at a private home in Bad Ischl; Brahms played a practical joke on the audience by introducing the trio as having been composed by his friend, the composer and pianist Ignaz Brull, who was also in Bad Ischl at the time; official premiere occurred in Frankfurt on December 29 that year, with Brahms at the piano.
1955 Bernarda Fink - Argentine mezzo-soprano (59 years old); received the Austrian Decoration for Science and Art in 2005.
1949 Imogen Cooper - English pianist (65 years old); participates in chamber music and lieder, especially with baritone Wolfgang Holzmair.
1952 premiere of John Cage’s 4’33”, for any instrument, in Woodstock, NY; the score instructs the performer not to play the instrument for the duration of the title, so the piece consists only of the sounds of the environment that the listeners hear while it is “performed”; commonly perceived as “four minutes thirty-three seconds of silence” it’s even been performed by full orchestras, complete with conductor.

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.
