October 15

1775 Bernhard Crusell – Finnish clarinetist, composer and translator (d.1838); considered the outstanding Finnish composer before Sibelius; also a skillful linguist, translating the important Italian, French, and German operas for performances in Sweden.

1844 Friedrich Nietzsche – German philosopher and occasional composer (d.1900); his Also sprach Zarathustra inspired the tone poem by Richard Strauss and A Mass of Life by Frederick Delius.

1905 first performance of Claude Debussy's La mer (The Sea) in Paris, by the Orchestre Lamoureux under the direction of Camille Chevillard; a masterpiece of suggestion and subtlety in its rich depiction of the ocean, combining unusual orchestration with daring impressionistic harmonies.

1905 Dag Wirén – Swedish composer (d.1986); his most famous work is the Serenade for Strings (1937); retired from composing in 1970, commenting, "One should stop in time, while one still has time to stop in time."

1933 first performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1, by the Leningrad Philharmonic with the composer as soloist; technically, it's the Concerto in C minor for Piano, Trumpet & String Orchestra Op 35, but the trumpet assumes relatively equal importance only in the finale.

1943 premiere of Benjamin Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn & Strings in London; commissioned by horn virtuoso Dennis Brain, a setting of a selection of six poems by British poets on the subject of night.

1946 first concert performance of Benjamin Britten's A Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (aka Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell) in Liverpool; written for an educational film The Instruments of the Orchestra; one of the three popularly-used scores in children's music education, along with Saint-Saëns' The Carnival of the Animals and Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.

11:00 FROM THE TOP with Christopher O’Riley and America's finest young musicians; recorded February 13, 2016 - From San Jose, California, this week’s From the Top is an all-Californian show featuring young musicians exclusively from The Golden State. A multi-competition-winning choir from Northern California performs a traditional spiritual; a 16-year-old pianist performs a powerfully evocative piece by a Turkish composer; and we meet a teenage guitarist from San Francisco who, with very little resources, began in music by teaching himself through YouTube videos and has since emerged to become a very original composer

18-year-old violinist Tiffany Wee from Redlands, California, performs Banjo and Fiddle by William Kroll (19011980), with pianist Christopher O’Riley.

16-year-old clarinetist Andrew Moses from Los Angeles, California, performs the third movement, Sultry Waltz, and the first movement, Bop, from “Grooves” by Philip Parker (b. 1953), with pianist Christopher O’Riley.

18-year-old composer and guitarist Gianfranco Baltazar, originally from Peru and now living in San Francisco, performs his own work, “Mi Lima Antano” for guitar, violin, viola, and cello.

16-year-old pianist Leyla Kabuli from Davis, California, performs “Black Earth” by Fazil Say (b. 1970).

The Monte Vista Chamber Singers (winners of the “Local Vocals” competition) from Monte Vista High School in Danville, California, perform “Alleluia” by Jake Runestad (b. 1986) and “Rockin’ Jerusalem,” a traditional spiritual arranged by Stacey V. Gibbs (b. 1962.).

Clarinetist Andrew Moses performs the third movement, Allegro con fuoco, from Sonata for Clarinet and Piano by Francis Poulenc (18991963), with pianist Christopher O’Riley
