September 30

1791 premiere of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's opera The Magic Flute, Vienna; Mozart scholar Maynard Solomon writes: “Although there were no reviews of the first performances, it was immediately evident that Mozart…had achieved a great success, the opera drawing immense crowds and reaching hundreds of performances during the 1790s.”

1840 Johann Svendsen – Norwegian composer, conductor and violinist (d.1911); had a chaotic relationship with his wife, who in 1883—according to a famous anecdote—in a fit of anger, threw the only copy of Svendsen's Symphony No. 3 in the fire; this incident was used by Henrik Ibsen in Hedda Gabler.

1852 Sir Charles Villiers Stanford – Irish composer, music teacher, and conductor (d.1924); in 1882, aged 29, he was one of the founding professors of the Royal College of Music, where he taught composition for the rest of his life; best remembered for his choral works for church performance, chiefly composed in the Anglican tradition.

1863 premiere of Georges Bizet's opera The Pearl Fishers (Les pêcheurs de perles), Paris;     the friendship duet Au fond du temple saint is one of the best-known in Western opera.

1935 premiere of George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, during trial run at Boston's Colonial Theater; according to Opera America, one of the most frequently produced American operas during the past decade.

1944 first performance of Ralph Vaughan Williams's Oboe Concerto, with soloist Leon Goossens and the Liverpool Philharmonic conducted by Sir Malcolm Sargent; was intended to premiere at a Proms concert, but due to the threat of V1 rocket raids on London the piece was first played in Liverpool instead.

1987 Aida Garifullina – Russian soprano (33 years old); winner of the 2013 Operalia competition and has appeared in a number of productions staged at the Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg; appeared as Lily Pons is the film Florence Foster Jenkins (2016).
