November 23

1834 first performance of Hector Berlioz's Harold in Italy by the Paris Conservatory Orchestra; four movement work for obbligato viola and orchestra, technically Berlioz's second symphony (after Symphonie fantastique); mood of the piece inspired by Lord Byron's poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage.

1876 Manuel de Falla – Spanish composer (d.1946); along with Isaac Albéniz and Enrique Granados, one of Spain's most important musicians of the first half of the 20th century.

1878 André Caplet – French composer and conductor (d.1925); known these days mostly through his orchestrations of works by Claude Debussy.

1933 Krzysztof Penderecki – Polish composer and conductor (86 years old); probably Poland's greatest living composer; among his best-known works are Threnody to the Victims of Hiroshima, St. Luke Passion, Polish Requiem and Anaklasis.

1940 first performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Piano Quintet at the Moscow Conservatory by the Beethoven Quartet with the composer at the piano; awarded the Stalin Prize in 1941.

1985 first performance of Michael Torke's Bright Blue Music in Carnegie Hall, New York; on composing this piece, the composer says "The feeling of working was exuberant; I would leave my outdoor studio, and the trees and bushes seemed to dance, and the sky seemed bright blue."
