December 20

1823 first performance of Franz Schubert's incidental music for the play Rosamunde, Fürstin von Zypern (Rosamunde, Princess of Cyprus) by Helmina von Chézy, in Vienna; in the 1891 publication of the entire score, the ten numbers of the Rosamunde music were preceded by the overture to Die Zauberharfe (The Magic Harp) without any proof it was ever Schubert's intention to associate that overture with the rest of the Rosamunde music; nevertheless, the name of the overture these days is Rosamunde not Magic Harp.

1871 Henry Hadley – American composer and conductor (d.1937); when in 1921 he was invited to become the associate conductor of the New York Philharmonic he became the first American to hold a full-time post with a major American orchestra; during his lifetime, his compositions were immensely popular, but they are not performed much these days.

1909 Vagn Holmboe – Danish composer and teacher (d.1996); who wrote largely in a neo-classical style.

1938 John Harbison - American composer (79 years old); known for his symphonies, operas, and large choral works; when asked in 1990 for his ‘artistic credo’, he said: "to make each piece different from the others, to find clear, fresh large designs, to reinvent traditions."

1948 Mitsuko Uchida – Japanese naturalized-British pianist and conductor (69 years old); named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 2009; serves as co-director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival; has a long association with The Cleveland Orchestra.

1999 premiere of John Harbison’s opera The Great Gatsby at the Metropolitan Opera in New York on the composer’s 61st birthday; cast included Jerry Hadley as Gatsby and Dawn Upshaw as Daisy, James Levine conducting.
