December 30

1752 Antonín Kraft – Czech cellist and composer (d.1820); considered one of the greatest cellists of his time; close friend of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven and Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 2 and the cello part in Beethoven's Triple Concerto were written for him.

1756 Pavel Vranický – Moravian composer (d.1808); his half-brother, Antonín, was also a composer.

1853 André Messager – French composer, organist, pianist, conductor and administrator (d.1929); stage compositions included ballets and 30 opéra comiques and operettas.

1877 first performance of Johannes Brahms's Symphony No. 2 by the Vienna Philharmonic under the direction of Hans Richter; the cheery mood of the symphony is unmistakable but the composer (perhaps mischievously) wrote to his publisher a month before the premiere, that the symphony "is so melancholy that you will not be able to bear it. I have never written anything so sad, and the score must come out in mourning”.

1884 first performance of Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 in Leipzig with the Gewandhaus Orchestra led by Arthur Nikisch, bringing the composer the greatest success he had known in his life; symphony dedicated to Ludwig II of Bavaria, noted patron of Richard Wagner.

1904 Dmitri Kabalevsky – Russian composer (d.1987); helped set up the Union of Soviet Composers in Moscow; probably best known in the West for the Galop from The Comedians Suite Op 26.

1919 Sir David Willcocks – English choral conductor, organist, composer and music administrator (d.2015); directed the Choir of King's College, Cambridge from 1957 to 1974; several of the descants and arrangements he wrote for the annual service of Nine Lessons and Carols were published in the series of books Carols for Choirs which he edited along with Reginald Jacques and John Rutter; was also director of the Royal College of Music in London.

1921 premiere of Sergei Prokofiev's satirical opera The Love for Three Oranges at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago; based on a play by Carlo Gozzi.              

1952 June Anderson – American coloratura soprano (65 years old); the first non-Italian ever to win the prestigious Bellini d'Oro prize.

1959 Sir Antonio Pappano – Italian-born English conductor (58 years old); music director of the Royal Opera House since 2002; knighted in the 2012 New Year Honors for services to music.
