June 1

1639 death of Melchior Franck – German composer of the late Renaissance and early Baroque eras (c.60 years old); prolific composer of Protestant church music, especially motets, helping to bring the stylistic innovations of the Venetian School north across the Alps into Germany.

1653 Georg Muffat baptized – German composer (d.1704); his concerti grossi and instrumental suites were among the earliest German examples of those genres.

1771 Ferdinando Paer – Italian composer (d.1839); known for his operas and oratorios; was of Austrian descent and used the German spelling 'Pär' in application for printing in Venice, and later in France, the spelling 'Paër'. é

1804 Mikhail Glinka – Russian composer (d.1857); the first Russian composer to gain wide recognition within his own country, often regarded as the father of Russian classical music.

1853 first performances of Liszt's Fantasy on Themes from Beethoven's 'Ruins of Athens' and Fantasy on Hungarian Themes for piano and orchestra, in Budapest with Hans von Bülow as soloist and Ferenc Erkel conducting the orchestra.

1925 first performance of Ernest Bloch's Concerto Grosso No. 1 with Piano Obbligato in Cleveland; created in response to complaints by Bloch's students at the Cleveland Institute of Music on "the inadequacies of tonality in shaping the music for the next century."

1932 first performance of Nikolai Miaskovsky's Symphony No. 12 'Collective Farm Symphony' in Moscow, by the Bolshoi Theater Orchestra, Albert Coates conducting; the verdict from a reviewer at "...not top-notch Miaskovsky but it is attractive enough if you are into 20th century celebratory Russian nationalism."

1941 Edo de Waart – Dutch conductor, oboist (79 years old); Music Director of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, and an Artistic Partner with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.

1943 Richard Goode – American pianist (77 years old); former Co-Artistic Director with Mitsuko Uchida, of the Marlboro Music School and Festival.
