April 12

1722 Pietro Nardini – Italian composer and violinist (d.1793); friend of Mozart's father Leopold.

1747 premiere of George Frideric Handel’s oratorio Judas Maccabaeus; became one of Handel's most popular oratorios.

1801 Joseph Lanner – Austrian dance music composer (d.1843); in 19th century Vienna, just as famous as his friend and musical rival Johann Strauss Sr.

1826 premiere of Carl Maria von Weber's opera Oberon (or, The Elf King's Oath) at the Royal Opera House in London.

1867 premiere of the Offenbach operetta Le Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein (The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein), in Paris; the story is a satirical critique of unthinking militarism and concerns a spoiled and tyrannical young Grand Duchess who learns that she cannot always get her way.

1932 Henri Lazarof – Bulgarian-born American composer (d.2013); best known for his Tableaux for piano and orchestra.

1933 first performance of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Violin Concerto No. 2 ‘The Prophets’ at Carnegie Hall by the New York Philharmonic with Arturo Toscanini conducting and soloist Jascha Heifetz, who had commissioned the work; an expression of the composer’s pride in his Jewish origins, or as he described it, the "splendor of past days", in the face of rising anti-Semitism that was sweeping across much of Europe.

1995 first performance of the Bassoon Concerto ‘The Five Sacred Trees’ by John Williams; Judith LeClair was the soloist with the New York Philharmonic conducted by Kurt Masur.
