December 3

1729 Padre Antonio Soler baptized – Spanish composer (d.1783); best known for his keyboard sonatas, an important contribution to the harpsichord, fortepiano and organ repertoire.

1883 Anton Webern – Austrian composer and conductor (d.1945); a member of the ‘Second Viennese School’, he became one of the best-known exponents of the twelve-tone technique; was shot and killed by an American soldier less than an hour before a curfew was to have gone into effect; the soldier responsible for his death was overcome by remorse and died of alcoholism in 1955.

1911 Nino Rota – Italian composer, pianist, conductor and academic (d.1979); best known for his film scores, notably for the films of Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti; he also composed the music for two of Franco Zeffirelli's Shakespeare films, and for the first two films of Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather trilogy, receiving the Academy Award for Best Original Score for The Godfather Part II (1974).

1914 Irving Fine – American composer (d.1962); member of a close-knit group of Boston composers in the mid-20th century who were sometimes called the ‘Boston Six’ or ‘Boston School’ (other members were Arthur Berger, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Lukas Foss, and Harold Shapero).

1938 Jose Serebrier – Uruguayan-American composer, conductor (79years old); Composer-in-Residence of the Cleveland Orchestra, 1968-1970; Music Director of the Cleveland Philharmonic, 1968-1971; one of the most recorded conductors of his generation.

1908 first performance of Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, England, with the Hallé Orchestra conducted by Hans Richter; critical reception was enthusiastic, and the public response unprecedented: The Musical Times described its "immediate and phenomenal success"’; within just over a year of this premiere, the symphony had been played a hundred times in Britain, continental Europe and the United States.

1970 Matt Haimovitz – Israeli-born cellist (47 years old); in 2000, he founded his own record label, Oxingale, which has released CD recordings of his own recital programs, as well as music performed by others; in 2010 this label expanded to include a music publishing branch.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, What Form Will Tax Reform Take?

On October 25, President Trump tweeted, “This will be the biggest TAX CUT in the history of our country – and we need it! #TaxReform.” Since the beginning of his campaign, President Trump has called for a significant rewrite to the United States’ tax code, which hasn’t happened since the Reagan administration.

Just one week after it was revealed on November 9, the House of Representatives passed their version of a tax reform bill with 227 Republican votes. This version of the bill includes tax cuts for corporations and small businesses, eliminates the estate tax, simplifies and collapses tax brackets from seven to four, and eliminates many deductions, including those for student loan interest.  All of these changes amount to a $1.4 trillion deficit. A Senate panel has also approved a version of the bill, paving the way for a full Senate consideration after Thanksgiving. A main difference between the two includes a provision in the Senate’s version that eliminates the legal requirement that almost all Americans buy health insurance or pay a penalty.

Panelists include: Jared Bernstein, Senior Fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy, and former Chief Economist and Economic Adviser to Vice President Joseph Biden; Grover Norquist, President, Americans for Tax Reform; Marna Ricker, Central Region Tax Managing Partner, EY

This conversation will be moderated by Cleveland.com's Washington Bureau Chief Stephen Koff.
