WCLV Program Guide 05-30-2019


May 30

1866 premiere of Smetana's comic opera The Bartered Bride at the Provisional Theatre, Prague; Smetana's quite successful attempt to create a truly Czech operatic genre.

1932 Pauline Oliveros – American composer and accordionist (d.2016); a central figure in the development of experimental and post-war electronic art music.

1938 premiere of Walter Piston's ballet The Incredible Flutist in Boston, Arthur Fiedler conducting.

1953 Anne LeBaron – American composer and harpist (66 years old); premiered her ‘hyperopera’ Crescent City in Los Angeles in 2012.

1962 premiere of Benjamin Britten's War Requiem at partially bombed-out Coventry Cathedral with the composer conducting; a large-scale, non-liturgical setting of the Requiem Mass, interspersed with the traditional Latin texts and, in an inspired touch, settings of poems by Wilfred Owen.
