June 2

1857 Sir Edward Elgar – English composer and conductor (d.1934); his works in the orchestral idiom of late 19th-century Romanticism—characterized by bold tunes, striking color effects, and mastery of large forms—stimulated a renaissance of English music.

1863 Felix Weingartner – Austrian conductor, composer and pianist (d.1942); first conductor to make commercial recordings of all nine Beethoven symphonies, and the second—after Leopold Stokowski—to record all four Brahms symphonies.

1929 Frédéric Devreese – Dutch-born Belgian composer and conductor (88 years old); has written chiefly orchestral, chamber and solo piano works.

1947 Sir Mark Elder – English conductor (71 years old); Music Director of the Hallé Orchestra in Manchester, England.

1949 Neil Shicoff – American Jewish opera singer and cantor (69 years old); known for his lyric tenor singing and his dramatic, emotional acting.

1953 first performances of Sir William Walton’s Coronation Te Deum and Orb and Sceptre March in London at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

1954 first performance of Leroy Anderson's Bugler's Holiday with the composer conducting at a Decca recording session in New York.
