Almanac

June 9

1810 Otto Nicolai – German composer, conductor, and founder of the Vienna Philharmonic (d.1849); best known for his operatic version of Shakespeare's comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor (1849).

1840 Franz Liszt gave a solo performance at the Hanover Square Rooms in London billed as Recitals; this was the first time the term ‘recital’ was used to describe a public musical performance, causing much debate at the time; Liszt is credited with both inventing and naming the now-common solo piano recital.

1860 first performance of Schumann's Cello Concerto by the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, at a concert commemorating the late composer's 50th birthday anniversary (June 8); the work had been completed in 1850.

1865 Albéric Magnard – French composer (d.1914); became a national hero in 1914 when he refused to surrender his property to German invaders and died defending it.

1865 Carl Nielsen – Danish composer, conductor and violinist (d.1931); widely recognized as Denmark's greatest composer.

1891 Cole Porter – American composer and songwriter (d.1964); his most successful musical Kiss Me, Kate was an adaptation of Shakespeare; it represented a comeback in 1948 and won the first Tony Award for best musical.

1902 premiere of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3 in Krefeld, Germany, conducted by the composer; the longest symphony in the standard repertoire, with a typical performance lasting around 90 to 100 minutes.

1904 the London Symphony Orchestra gave its first concert, with Hans Richter conducting.

1912 Ingolf Dahl – German-born American composer, pianist, conductor and educator (d.1970); among his students, Michael Tilson Thomas, Morten Lauridsen and Lawrence Moss; Tilson Thomas said: "Dahl was an inspiring teacher; over and above the subject matter, he showed his students about the practical value of humanism. That is, how to let humanistic concerns infuse your daily existence."         

1938 Charles Wuorinen – American composer (81 years old); awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1970.

1939 first performance of Sir Arnold Bax’s Symphony No. 7 (“dedicated to The People of America”) at Carnegie Hall by the New York Philharmonic, with Sir Adrian Boult conducting; commissioned by the British Council as part of the British Exhibition at 1939 World's Fair, along with Arthur Bliss's Piano Concerto in B-Flat, and Ralph Vaughan Williams' Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus.

1940 first performance of Aaron Copland's Our Town orchestral suite (from the film score), on a CBS radio broadcast; a revised version of the suite was given its first public performance by the Boston Pops conducted by Leonard Bernstein on May 7, 1944.

1951 premiere of Haydn’s opera Orpheus and Eurydice in Florence at the Teatro della Pergola with a cast including Maria Callas and Boris Christoff, led by the legendary German conductor Erich Kleiber; Haydn had composed this opera 160 years earlier in 1791, but the work was never staged in his lifetime.
