May 12

1739 Jan Vanhal – Bohemian-born composer (d.1813); in or around 1784, Haydn, Dittersdorf, Mozart and Vanhal played string quartets together and the image of four of the great composers of the time all joined in common music-making is an enduring image of the Classical era.

1750 according to Composers Datebook, the first documented report of an audience standing during the Hallelujah Chorus during Handel's Messiah; by the way, the great choral conductor Robert Shaw, former Cleveland Orchestra Director of Choruses, hated the tradition.

1754 Franz Anton Hoffmeister – German composer (d.1812); his reputation today is mainly as a music publisher: by 1785 he had established one of Vienna’s first music publishers; he printed his own works plus those of many important composers of the time, including Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven.

1755 Giovanni Battista Viotti – Italian violinist and composer (d.1824); also a director of French and Italian opera companies in Paris and London.

1832 premiere of Gaetano Donizetti's comic opera L'elisir d'amore (The Elixir of Love) at the Teatro della Canobbiana, Milan; no. 12 on the Operabase list of the most-performed operas worldwide.

1842 Jules Massenet – French composer (d.1912); most of his operas fall in and out of fashion except for Manon (1884) and Werther (1892).

1845 Gabriel Fauré – French composer, organist, pianist and teacher (d.1924); one of the foremost French composers of his generation; his musical style influenced many 20th-century composers.

1903 Sir Lennox Berkeley – English composer (d.1989); studied with Nadia Boulanger and Maurice Ravel and much of his music reflects a French influence.

1926 first performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 1 in Saint Petersburg by what was known at the time as the Leningrad Philharmonic under Nikolai Malko; a tremendous success at its premiere, and still considered one of his finest works.

1941 Anthony Newman – American musician (78 years old); he's an organist, harpsichordist, pedal harpsichordist, pianist, fortepianist, conductor, writer, and teacher.
