Program Guide 04-02-2018


April 2

1800 first performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 at the Hofburgtheater in Vienna, during a benefit concert for Beethoven (an Akademie) conducted by the composer; also on the program was the first public performance of Beethoven's Septet Op 20.

1803 Franz Lachner – German composer and conductor (d.1890); among the many composers well-regarded in their day, and now relatively forgotten.

1958 first performance of Ralph Vaughan Williams's Symphony No. 9 in London by the Royal Philharmonic, Sir Adrian Boult conducting; generally considered one of the composer’s greatest works, though initial critical reaction was more favorable in the US than in England.
