February 23

1649 John Blow baptized – English composer and organist (d.1708); Jeremiah Clarke and Henry Purcell were among his pupils; buried in the north aisle of Westminster Abbey.

1685 George Frideric Handel – German-born English composer (d.1759); born the same year as J. S. Bach and Domenico Scarlatti, Handel is regarded as one of the greatest composers of the Baroque era; Beethoven said he was "the master of us all... the greatest composer that ever lived. I would uncover my head and kneel before his tomb”; Mozart is reputed to have said of him, "Handel understands affect better than any of us. When he chooses, he strikes like a thunder bolt."

1835 premiere of Fromental Halévy’s opera La Juive (The Jewess) at the Paris Opéra; because the story concerns an impossible love between a Christian man and a Jewish woman, the work has been seen by some as a plea for religious tolerance.

1900 Elinor Remick Warren – American composer and pianist (d.1991); her magnum opus was the choral symphony The Legend of King Arthur (1940).

1913 premiere of Arnold Schoenberg's Gurre-Lieder (Songs of Gurre, referring to Gurre Castle in Denmark), conducted by Franz Schreker; massive cantata for five vocal soloists, narrator, chorus and large orchestra, based on poems by the Danish novelist Jens Peter Jacobsen.

1967 Alan Gilbert – American conductor and violinist (53 years old); from 1995-1997, assistant conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra; retired Music Director of the New York Philharmonic.  He made his Metropolitan Opera conducting debut in November 2008 with John Adams's new opera, Doctor Atomic.  He became Chief Conductor of Hamburg’s NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra in September 2019. In addition, he has been named the new Music Director of the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm and will begin in the spring of 2021.

1980 Cornelius Meister – German conductor and pianist (40 years old); Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Vienna Radio Symphony through 2018.
