Almanac

February 2

1795 first performance of Franz Joseph Haydn's Symphony No. 102 in London, the composer conducting; many scholars believe this to be Haydn’s’ true ‘Miracle’ symphony: at the premiere a chandelier fell from the ceiling of the concert hall, but members of the audience escaped unharmed because they had rushed the stage; it was long believed that this event took place at the premiere of his Symphony No. 96, which is still called ‘Miracle.’ 

1875 Fritz Kreisler – Austrian-born American violinist and composer (d. 1962); regarded as one of the greatest violinists of all time; like many greats of his generation, produced a characteristic sound which was immediately recognizable as his own; wrote many pieces for the violin, including Liebesleid and Liebesfreud; some of these works were originally ascribed to earlier composers, but in 1935, Kreisler revealed that he actually wrote the pieces; when critics complained, Kreisler replied that they had already deemed the compositions worthy: "The name changes, the value remains," he said.

1900 premiere of Gustav Charpentier's Louise at the Paris Opéra-Comique; a French example of verismo opera, depicting Parisian working-class life; the third-act aria Depuis le jour is a popular concert piece.

1944 Sir Andrew Davis – English conductor (74 years old); currently music director of Lyric Opera of Chicago, chief conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and conductor laureate of both the Toronto Symphony and the BBC Symphony.

1944 Ursula Oppens – American pianist and educator (74 years old); renowned for her commissioning and championship of the music of American composers.
