December 12

1887 Kurt Atterberg – Swedish composer (d.1974); for the 100th anniversary of the death of Schubert in 1928, the Columbia Graphophone Company sponsored a worldwide symphony competition in which composers had to write a symphony completing, or inspired by, Schubert's ‘Unfinished’ Symphony and Atterberg’s Symphony No. 6 Op 31 was awarded first prize, winning $10,000; after WWII, ostracized by his fellow Swedish composers because of alleged—but never proven—Nazi sympathies.

1907 Roy Douglas – British composer and arranger (d. 3/13/15); one-time musical assistant to Ralph Vaughan Williams, William Walton and Richard Addinsell; made orchestrations of piano pieces by Chopin for the ballet Les Sylphides and of Addinsell’s Warsaw Concerto.

1929 first concert performance of Constant Lambert’s Rio Grande for alto, choir, piano, brass, strings and percussion, in Manchester, England with Sir Hamilton Harty as piano soloist, and the composer conducting the Hallé Orchestra; an example of symphonic jazz, in the style of George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue; the first-ever performance was a BBC Radio broadcast on February 27, 1928.

1960 Jaap van Zweden   Dutch conductor and violinist (58 years old).  At 18, he became Concertmaster of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra, a position he held until 1995; he became a conductor after Leonard Bernstein invited him to lead an orchestra rehearsal in Berlin.  He has begun his tenure as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic  with the 2018-2019 season. 

2001 first performance of Henry Brant’s Ice Field, by the San Francisco Symphony, Michael Tilson Thomas conducting; awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2002.
