Almanac

September 4

1824 Anton Bruckner – Austrian composer (d.1896); his compositions helped to define contemporary musical radicalism, owing to their dissonances, unprepared modulations, and roving harmonies; unlike other musical radicals, he showed extreme humility before other musicians, Richard Wagner in particular; the ‘Bruckner Problem’ is a term that refers to the complications resulting from the numerous contrasting versions and editions that exist for most of his symphonies.

1892 Darius Milhaud – French composer and teacher (d.1974); a member of Les Six (The Group of Six) and one of the most prolific composers of the 20th century; his compositions are influenced by jazz and make use of polytonality; his autobiography is titled Notes sans musique (Notes without Music), later revised as Ma vie heureuse (My Happy Life).

1964 René Pape – German bass (54 years old); repertoire includes virtually all the great German bass roles, as well as the title role of Boris Godunov.

1996 first performance of Steven Mackey’s Lost and Found by the San Francisco Symphony, Michael Tilson Thomas conducting; described by the composer as a "snappy toccata and fanfare for orchestra".

1999 first performance of a new film score by Philip Glass to accompany the classic 1931 Tod Browning horror film Dracula (starring Bela Lugosi), by the Kronos Quartet at Telluride, Colorado.
