Almanac

April 14

1789 first performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 26 ‘Coronation’ at the Royal Saxon Court in Dresden, with the composer as soloist; but the concerto picked up its nickname when Mozart performed it again in Frankfurt on October 15, 1790, at festivities surrounding the coronation of Emperor Leopold  II.

1883 premiere of Léo Delibes’ opera Lakmé in Paris at the Opéra-Comique; the popular Flower Duet (Sous le dôme épais) is sung in Act 1 by Lakmé, the daughter of a Brahmin priest, and her servant Mallika, and the opera's most famous aria is the Bell Song in Act 2.

1933 Morton Subotnik – American electronic music composer (85 years old); best known for his Silver Apples of the Moon, the first electronic work commissioned by a record company, Nonesuch; one of the founding members of California Institute of the Arts where he taught for many years.

1951 Julian Lloyd Webber – English cellist (67 years old); younger brother of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber; forced to retire from public performance due to a herniated disc in his neck in 2014.

1956 Barbara Bonney – American soprano (62 years old); founder of The Bonney Foundation, whose mission is "to give young singers the needed support for a good career start."

1957 Mikhail Pletnev – Russian pianist, conductor and composer (61 years old); his greatest musical hero is Sergei Rachmaninoff, whose performance style - both at the piano and on the podium - he consciously emulates.

1971 Lara St. John – Canadian violinist (47 years old); in 2000, she founded the artist-owned record company, Ancalagon LLC, named after her pet iguana.

1975 Avner Dorman – Tel-Aviv born composer and conductor (43 years old).   He is the current Music Director of CityMusic Cleveland.
