July 2

1714 Christoph Willibald Gluck – German composer (d.1787); an important opera reformer; with a series of radical new works in the 1760s, among them Orfeo ed Euridice and Alceste, he broke the stranglehold that opera seria had enjoyed for much of the century.

1900 first performance of the Sibelius tone poem Finlandia in Helsinki, Robert Kajanus conducting; composed for the Press Celebrations of 1899, a covert protest against increasing censorship from the Russian Empire, the last of seven pieces performed as an accompaniment to a tableau depicting episodes from Finnish history.

1914 Frederick Fennell – Cleveland-born internationally recognized conductor (d. 2004); one of the primary figures in promoting the wind ensemble as a performing group; also influential as a band pedagogue, and greatly affected the field of music education in the USA and abroad; colleague Jerry F. Junkin said: "He was arguably the most famous band conductor since John Philip Sousa."

1935 Gilbert Kalish – American pianist (85 years old); founding member of the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, a pioneering new music group that flourished during the 1960s and '70s and a pianist of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players from 1969 to 1998.

1982 Ilya Gringolts – Russian violinist, composer and teacher (38 years old); studied with Itzhak Perlman at Juilliard; committed to period instrument performances and often plays a baroque violin and bow, sometimes switching between modern and baroque violins in a single program; founded the Gringolts String Quartet in 2008.

22:00 CITY CLUB FORUM – recorded Friday at The City Club of Cleveland, a citadel of free speech, The Land Bank Eight Years On: Evaluating a National Model - Gus Frangos, President & General Counsel, Cuyahoga Land Bank; local and state leaders created the Cuyahoga Land Bank in 2009, in part, to deal with the previous year’s economic collapse. That national economic crisis was caused in large part by practices in the housing market that led to mass residential foreclosures. Many in our communities still remember when Cleveland’s Slavic Village was dubbed the “Ground Zero of the Foreclosure Crisis.” The creation of the Cuyahoga Land Bank required its own legislation at the state level, and the entity that emerged had far more latitude to deal with blighted properties than any other existing organization. Eight years on, Cuyahoga County’s efforts are seen as a national model for cities facing similar issues. This conversation features one of the Land Bank’s architects, President and General Counsel Gus Frangos, who will discuss lessons from the last eight years of strategic demolition, rehabilitation, and community rebuilding.
