July 19

1742 Jean-Baptiste Davaux – French composer and violinist (d.1822); quite popular in his day and not just in France: his music was performed in New York in 1782.

1913 Peggy Stuart Coolidge – American composer and conductor (d.1981); was one of the first female American composers to have a recording devoted to her symphonic works, and the first American composer (male or female) to have a concert devoted entirely to her works presented in the Soviet Union.

1958 David Robertson – American conductor (62 years old); music director of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra; his wife is pianist Orli Shaham.

1965 Evelyn Glennie – Scottish virtuoso percussionist and composer (55 years old); profoundly deaf since the age of 12, she plays barefoot during both live performances and studio recordings in order to feel the music better; contends that deafness is largely misunderstood by the public and says she taught herself to hear with parts of her body other than her ears.

1974 Ramin Djawadi – German composer of Iranian descent (46 years old); best known for his music for HBO’s fantasy series, Game of Thrones.

1996 first performance of John Williams’s Summon the Heroes, a six-minute theme for the 1996 Summer Olympics, commissioned by the Atlanta Olympic Organizing Committee
