November 28

Happy Thanksgiving

1784 Ferdinand Ries baptized – German composer (d.1838); even though he is best known as a pupil and secretary of Beethoven, there is a Ferdinand Ries Society.

1811 first performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 'Emperor' at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig; the epithet ‘Emperor’ was not Beethoven's but was coined by Johann Baptist Cramer, the English publisher of the concerto.

1829 Anton Rubinstein – Russian pianist, conductor and composer (d.1894); ranks amongst the great 19th-century piano virtuosos; founded the Saint Petersburg Conservatory; his younger brother Nikolai Rubinstein founded the Moscow Conservatory.

1909 first performance of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 in Carnegie Hall with the composer as soloist; Walter Damrosch conducting the New York Symphony Society Orchestra; ‘Rach 3’ has the reputation of being among the most technically challenging concertos in the standard repertoire.

1930 first performance of Howard Hanson's Symphony No. 2 'Romantic' by the Boston Symphony led by Serge Koussevitzky; for more than 50 years, music from this work has been used as a WCLV sign-off theme and musical logo for station-related announcements.

1930 first performance of the orchestral version of Zoltan Kodály's Dances of Marosszék in Dresden; started as a piece for piano in 1927.

1936 Celin Romero – Spanish guitarist (82 years old); with his father Celedonio and younger brothers Pepe and Angel, became ‘The Romeros - The Royal Family of the Guitar’.

1943 Randy Newman – American singer-songwriter, arranger, composer, and pianist (76 years old); nominated for 20 Academy Awards, winning twice; has also won three Emmys, six Grammy Awards, and was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2013.
