June 10

1865 premiere of Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde in Munich; acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertory, the music drama is notable for Wagner's advanced use of chromaticism, tonality, orchestral color and harmonic suspension.

1904 Frederick Loewe – Austrian-American composer (d.1988); teamed with lyricist Alan Jay Lerner on the long-running Broadway musicals My Fair Lady and Camelot.

1913 Tikhon Khrennikov – Russian and Soviet composer (d.2007); as the powerful Secretary of the Union of Soviet Composers 1948-1991, and admirer of Stalin, led what could be charitably described as a complicated political life.  

1939 premiere of Five Variants of Dives & Lazarus by Ralph Vaughan Williams and the Piano Concerto in B-Flat by Sir Arthur Bliss at Carnegie Hall in New York; commissioned by the British Council as part of the British Exhibition at 1939 World's Fair, along with the Symphony No. 7 by Sir Arnold Bax.

1941 first public performance of Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings & Timpani in Paris with Maurice Duruflé (who had advised Poulenc during the work’s composition) as soloist.

1960 Mark-Anthony Turnage – prolific English composer (60 years old); in 2006, named a co-composer-in-residence of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, alongside Argentinian composer Osvaldo Golijov.

1971 Angella Ahn – South Korean violinist (49 years old); member with her sisters Lucia and Maria, piano and cello, of the Ahn Trio.

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

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
