WCLV Program Guide 08-23-2019


august 23

1735 premiere of Jean-Philippe Rameau's opéra-ballet Les Indes galantes [The Gallant Indies] in Paris; a fourth act, Les Sauvages [The Savages] was added in 1736 depicting (in highly stylized fashion) Native Americans, inspired by a meeting in Paris between Louis XV and six Native American chiefs in 1725.

1854 Moritz Moszkowski – German composer, pianist and teacher of Polish descent (d.1925); Ignace Jan Paderewski said: "After Chopin, Moszkowski best understands how to write for the piano, and his writing embraces the whole gamut of piano technique."

1900 Ernst Krenek – Austrian-born American composer (d.1991); explored atonality and other modern styles; author of Music Here and Now (1939), a study of Johannes Ockeghem (1953), and Horizons Circled: Reflections on my Music (1974); wrote two pieces using the pseudonym Thornton Winsloe.

1905 Constant Lambert – English composer, conductor and writer (d.1951); a prodigy, writing orchestral works from the age of 13; at 20 received a commission to write a ballet for Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes; his book Music Ho! (1934), subtitled "a study of music in decline", is among the wittiest pieces of music criticism in the English language.

1906 premiere of Ralph Vaughan Williams's Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1 in London conducted by Henry Wood; extensively revised in 1914.

1961 Alexandre Desplat – French film composer (47 years old); has worked on a variety of independent and commercial successes such as The Queen, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The King's Speech, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty and Godzilla.
