Almanac

March 21

1685 Johann Sebastian Bach – German composer, organist, harpsichordist, violist, and violinist (d.1750); his music is revered for its intellectual depth, technical command, and artistic beauty; regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time and many would say the greatest.

1839 Modest Mussorgsky – Russian composer (d.1881); one of the group known as ‘The Five’ (with Balakirev, Cui, Rimsky-Korsakov and Borodin), sharing the idea of producing a specifically Russian kind of art music.

1839 first public performance of the final symphony completed by Franz Schubert, 11 years after his death, the Symphony No. 9 in C; originally called ‘The Great C major’ to distinguish it from Schubert’s Symphony No. 6, the subtitle is now usually taken as a reference to the symphony's majesty; the conductor in the Leipzig Gewandhaus was Felix Mendelssohn; Robert Schumann (who had brought the work to Mendelssohn) hailed the symphony for its 'heavenly length'.

1904 first performance of Richard Strauss’s tone poem Sinfonia Domestica; the composer led the Wetzler Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall in New York; a musical reflection of the secure domestic life so valued by the composer, harmoniously conveying daily events and family life.

1917 Anton Coppola – American composer and conductor (101).  At the age of 9, he sang in the Metropolitan Opera Children’s Chorus for the American premiere of Puccini’s Turandot.

1925 premiere of Maurice Ravel's one-act opera L'Enfant et les sortileges (The Child and Spells) at the Grand Théatre in Monte Carlo, conducted by Victor de Sabata.

1942 Owain Arwel Hughes – Welsh conductor (76 years old); became well known after a rousing televised performance of William Walton's Belshazzar’s Feast, which won the praise of the composer himself.
