July 9

1879 Ottorino Respighi – Italian composer, musicologist and conductor (d.1936); best known for his orchestral music, particularly the three Roman tone poems: The Fountains of Rome, The Pines of Rome and Roman Festivals; his musicological interest in 16th-, 17th- and 18th-century music led him to also compose pieces such as the three suites of Ancient Airs and Dances.

1915 David Diamond – American composer (d. 2005); obit in The New York Times: "a major American composer whose early brilliance in the 1940's was eclipsed by the dominance of atonal music…He was part of what some considered a forgotten generation of great American symphonists, including Howard Hanson, Roy Harris, William Schuman, Walter Piston and Peter Mennin."

1936 David Zinman – American conductor and violinist (84 years old); studied violin at Oberlin and took up conducting at Tanglewood; until 2014, Music Director of the Zurich Tonhalle; his 1992 recording of Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3 with the London Sinfonietta was an international bestseller.

1938 Paul Chihara – Japanese-American composer (82 years old); spent several years of his childhood with his family in an internment camp in Minidoka, Idaho.

1963 John Mark Ainsley – English lyric tenor (57 years old); admired for his interpretations of baroque music and the works of Mozart; more recently has gravitated toward 20th century music, singing in operas by Henze, Janácek, and Britten.

00:00 FROM THE TOP with Christopher O’Riley and America's finest young musicians; recorded March 4, 2016 - From Lake Jackson, Texas, this week’s From the Top features an energetic 11-year-old pianist from Texas performing the music of Mendelssohn, we’ll hear a brand new work for four cellos written by a brilliant teenage composer from Pennsylvania, and we’ll meet a very confident young trumpet player who thrives on the pressure of playing a brass instrument—he loves the challenge that, because the instrument is so loud, everyone can hear any mistake he might make. Not surprisingly, this young player makes very few.
