Born into a family of diplomats, he moved frequently during his childhood, both within former Yugoslavia and abroad, before finally settling in Ljubljana.

Synopsis Ever wonder how composers choose the stories for their operas? Here’s one answer, courtesy of the American composer Tobias Picker: “My sister was dusting her bookshelf in 1998, and a copy of Emile Zola’s novel Thérèse Raquin fell off. She picked it up, read it and then recommended it to me for my next opera.” And so three years later, on t…
 
Todor Kobakov grew up in Bulgaria where at age 7 he was accepted into a music focused school so competitive that there were kids in the wings waiting to take your spot if you stumbled. He began showing up to help out on the sets where his mother worked as a producer for the National broadcaster, sparking his interest in the intersection between mus…
 
Award winning Composer Christopher Dietz is a stargazer, his compositions moving through the darkness of spacetime in whirling constellations of sound. With instruments standing in for celestial bodies, Dietz engages in a philosophical contemplation of dualities and opposition, changing seasons, beginnings and endings. The individual, in relief aga…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1719, the Papal ambassador in Lisbon noted the arrival of a fellow Italian, a composer named Domenico Scarlatti. Domenico was in his early 30s, and the son of Alessandro Scarlatti, a very famous and influential composer of Baroque operas in Naples. At the time, Domenico was nowhere near as famous as his father, and had c…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1919, the eminent French conductor Pierre Monteux, led the Boston Symphony in the premiere performance of “The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Khan,” a new orchestral score written by the American composer Charles Tomlinson Griffes.

The Concerto was never given a public performance during Schumann’s lifetime, although the great 19th century violinist …
 
Synopsis As a busy church musician Johann Sebastian Bach wrote around 300 sacred cantatas. That seems a high number to us – but consider that his contemporaries Telemann and Graupner composed well over a thousand cantatas each! In what surviving documents we have, Bach himself rarely uses the Italian term “cantata” to describe these pieces, preferr…
 
Synopsis In 1944, while the Second World War ground on in Europe and Asia, David Diamond’s “Rounds for String Orchestra” received its premiere performance by the Minneapolis Symphony and its then conductor, Dimitri Mitropoulos. “Write me a happy work,” Mitropoulos had asked Diamond. “These are distressing times, most of the difficult music I play i…

Synopsis Today is the Feast Day of St. Cecilia, an early Christian martyr. Her story dates back to Roman times, when the new religion was still punishable by death. It wasn’t until the 15th century, however, that St. Cecilia became the patron saint of music and musicians. Over time her Feast Day came to be celebrated with special works composed in …

The Gershwins were to supply music for a series of new movies, some starring an old friend of theirs, dancer Fred Astaire. In those d…
 
Synopsis Falling in love with someone else’s spouse can result in divorce, emotional turmoil, or (in the case of composers) some very Romantic music. Take the case of Brahms, who for most of his adult life carried a torch for Mrs. Clara Schumann, the wife of his friend and mentor, Robert Schumann. Brahms’ Piano Quartet No. 3 was conceived during an…
 
Synopsis The intimate combination of flute and guitar has proven to be an attractive one for a number of composers – and if the composer herself plays the flute, so much the better. “Canyon Echoes,” written by the American composer and flutist Katherine Hoover premiered on today’s date in 1991 at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis by flutist Susa…
 
Synopsis In the year 1900, a German-born conductor named Fritz Scheel arranged for two orchestral programs in Philadelphia billed as the “Philippines Concerts.” These were benefits, as contemporary ads put it: “for the relief of families of the nation’s heroes killed in the Philippines.” The previous year U.S. troops had fought a guerrilla army in …

Disney’s film was a milestone in cultural “cross-over”, in which classical music – in the person of conductor Leopold Stokowski – shook hands (literally and figuratively) with pop culture – in the person of Mickey Mouse. It was also a milestone …
 
Synopsis For the ideal performance of “Makrokosmos II: Twelve fantasy pieces after the Zodiac,” by the American composer George Crumb, one should perhaps be outdoors in a remote clearing under a crystalline canopy of stars. For the record, the premiere performance of Crumb’s suite for amplified piano took place indoors at Alice Tully Hall in New Yo…
 
Synopsis On today’s date in 1923, the League of Composers presented its first chamber concert in New York City.

Synopsis If you’ve ever attended a live symphony concert, you’re familiar with the routine: before anyone starts playing, before the conductor even steps on stage, the principal oboist sounds an “A” – and the other musicians tune their instruments to that pitch. On today’s date in 1975, a few people in the audience at Carnegie Hall might have been …
 
Synopsis OK, here’s a cocktail party question for music fans: “What do James Brown, the master of funk, and Soviet symphonic composer Dmitri Shostakovich have in common?” The answer is a piece that premiered on today’s date in 1990 at Alice Tully Hall in New York City at a concert by Marin Alsop’s Concordia orchestra. The piece is entitled “Stomp,”…
