Jackson Mac Low (September 12, 1922 – December 8, 2004) was an #American #poet, performance artist, #composer and playwright, known to most readers of poetry as a practioneer of systematic chance operations and other non-intentional compositional methods in his work, which #MacLow first experienced in the musical work of #JohnCage, #EarleBrown and #ChristianWolff. He was married to the artist #IrisLezak from 1962 to 1978, and to the poet Anne Tardos from 1990 until his death.
An early affiliate of #Fluxus (he co-published An Anthology of Chance Operations) and stylistic progenitor of the Language poets, #HacksonMacLow cultivated ties with an eclectic array of notable figures in the postwar American #avantgarde, including #NamJunePaik, #KathyAcker, #AllenGinsberg and #ArthurRussell.

Vítězslav Novák was a #Czech #composer and pedagogue. Stylistically, #Novák was part of the neo-romantic tradition, and his music has been occasionally considered an early example of Czech modernism.
#VítězslavNovák’s early works show some influence from #Moravian and #Slovak folk music. The next influence that followed was that of French impressionism, which first appears in the song cycle 'Melancholie', op. 25, composed in 1901. #Czechoslovak independence in 1918 sparked several patriotic compositions, these democratic impulses led to a stylistic conservatism, such that the artistic experimentation of the years 1900–1916 all but disappeared. In the last years of his life, he was primarily engaged with choral works based on South-#Bohemian folksong.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (27 January 1756 – 5 December 1791), baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential #composer of the #Classicalera.
He composed more than 600 works, many acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, concertante, chamber, operatic, and choral music. He is among the most enduringly popular of classical composers, and his influence is profound on subsequent Western art music. #LudwigvanBeethoven composed his own early works in the shadow of #Mozart, and #JosephHaydn wrote: "posterity will not see such a talent again in 100 years".

Francesco Saverio Geminiani (baptised 5 December 1687 – 17 September 1762) was an #Italian #violinist, #composer and music theorist.
Born at Lucca, #Geminiani received lessons in music from Alessandro #Scarlatti, and studied the violin under Carlo Ambrogio #Lonati in Milan and afterwards under Arcangelo #Corelli. Geminiani appears to have been a first-rate violinist. His Italian pupils reportedly called him "Il Furibondo", the Madman, because of his expressive rhythms.
#FrancescoGeminiani's best-known compositions are three sets of concerti grossi; his Opus 2 (1732), Opus 3 (1733) and Opus 7 (1746) (there are 42 concerti in all) which introduce the viola as a member of the concertino group of soloists, making them essentially concerti for string quartet. These works are deeply contrapuntal to please a London audience still in love with Corelli, compared to the galant work that was fashionable on the Continent at the time of their composition. Geminiani also reworked his teacher Corelli's Opp. 1, 3 and 5 into concerti grossi.

Benjamin Franklin White (September 20, 1800 – December 5, 1879) was a shape note "singing master", and compiler of the shape note tunebook known as 'The Sacred Harp'.
White and #ElishaJKing published #TheSacredHarp in 1844, using the four-shape shape note notation. King died in 1844. In 1845, White led in the establishment of the Southern Musical Convention. In 1850, he issued a second edition of 'The Sacred Harp', adding 97 songs and 103 pages. With the 1850 and future editions, White was assisted by a musical committee appointed by the Southern Musical Convention. In 1859, a third edition of The Sacred Harp was released, adding 74 more songs on 63 pages. A fourth edition came out in 1869. For the first time, in this revision White replaced old songs with new ones, rather than simply adding the new songs to the back of the book. A year later, he released a copyright of the same book signed only by himself and his son, #DPWhite, perhaps clarifying ownership. In 1911, White's youngest son, #JamesLandrumWhite, reissued this fourth edition with a supplement of newer gospel songs. #BenjaminFranklinWhite also taught music; among his pupils was #SarahLancaster.

Karl Amadeus Hartmann (2 August 1905 – 5 December 1963) was a #German #composer. 
Some have lauded him as the greatest German symphonist of the 20th century, although he is now largely overlooked, particularly in English-speaking countries.
As a composer, #Hartmann attempted a difficult synthesis of many different idioms, including musical expressionism and jazz stylization, into organic symphonic forms in the tradition of #Bruckner and #Mahler.

Psychology of Music mengungkap fakta bahwa cewek cenderung lebih mudah memberikan nomor teleponnya kepada cowok yang membawa tas gitar dibanding ke cowok yang bawa tas gym 
Dalam penelitian ini, seorang cowok ganteng mendekati 300 cewek yang sama sekali nggak dikenal sebelumnya
.
Hasilnya, ada 14% yang memberikan nomor telepon ke cowok yang nggak bawa apa-apa; 9% ke cowok yang bawa tas olahraga dan 30% ke cowok yang membawa tas gitar
.
Alasan cewek lebih tertarik dengan cowok bergitar, diduga karena kedekatan seseorang dengan musik dianggap berkaitan dengan gen dan kecerdasan yang baik. Selain itu, para musisi emang dianggap sebagai orang yang keren, kan
.
Hasil penelitian ini juga diperkuat oleh penelitian lain yang terbit di Letter on Evolutionary Behavioral Science
.
Eksperimen yang dilakukan selama penelitian adalah, para peneliti mengirim permintaan pertemanan (add friends) di Facebook ke 100 cewek single
. 
Sapaan pertamanya sama selalu: "Hei, apa kabar? Saya suka foto kamu." Nah, foto profil peneliti diubah-ubah selama itu. Ada yang foto menampilkan dirinya sedang memegang gitar ada yang nggak memegang apa-apa
.
Ternyata, respon dari cewek meningkat saat peneliti menggunakan foto bergitar. Ada 28% cewek yang merespon pesannya. Sementara saat nggak bergitar, hanya 10% cewek yang merespon
. 
So, mulai sekarang kalau mau gebet cewek baru, coba ganti foto profilmu dengan foto sedang memegang gitar. Tapi, pastikan kamu juga bisa memainkannya yah.

La Favorite is a #grandopera in four acts by #GaetanoDonizetti to a French-language libretto by Alphonse Royer and Gustave Vaëz, based on the play Le comte de Comminges by #BacularddArnaud. It premiered #onthisday 1840 at the Académie Royale de Musique (Salle Le Peletier) in Paris, France.
Originally, #Donizetti had been composing an opera by the name of #LeDucdAlbe as his second work for the Opéra in Paris. However, the director, #LéonPillet, objected to an opera without a prominent role for his mistress, mezzo-soprano #RosineStoltz. Donizetti therefore abandoned Le Duc d'Albe and borrowed heavily from #LangedeNisida, an unrealized project from 1839, to create #LaFavorite. Donizetti wrote the entire final act in three to four hours, with the exception of the cavatina and a part of a duet, which were added at the rehearsal stage.

The "War of the Romantics" is a term used by some music historians to describe the aesthetic schism among prominent musicians in the second half of the 19th century. Musical structure, the limits of chromatic harmony, and program music versus absolute music were the principal areas of contention. The opposing parties crystallized during the 1850s.
The conservative circle was centered on Johannes #Brahms, #JosephJoachim, #ClaraSchumann and the #LeipzigConservatoire which had been founded by Felix #Mendelssohn. Their opponents, the radical progressives in #Weimar, were represented by Franz #Liszt and the members of the so-called #NeudeutscheSchule and by Richard #Wagner. The controversy was German and Central European in origin; musicians from France, Italy, and Russia were only marginally involved.
Composers from both sides looked back on #Beethoven as their spiritual and artistic hero; the conservatives seeing him as an unsurpassable peak, the progressives as a new beginning in music.

For the official coronation, he raised the Charlemagne crown over his own head in a symbolic gesture, but never placed it on top because he was already wearing the golden wreath. Instead he placed the crown on Josephine's head, the event commemorated in the officially sanctioned painting by #JacquesLouisDavid.

Samson et Dalila, Op. 47, is a #grandopera in three acts and four scenes by Camille #SaintSaëns to a #French libretto by Ferdinand Lemaire. It was first performed in Weimar at the Grossherzogliches (Grand Ducal) Theater (now the Staatskapelle Weimar) #onthisday 1877 in a German translation.
The #opera is based on the Biblical tale of #SamsonandDelilah found in Chapter 16 of the Book of Judges in the #OldTestament. It is the only opera by Saint-Saëns that is regularly performed. The second act love scene in Delilah's tent is one of the set pieces that define French opera. Two of Delilah's arias are particularly well known: "Printemps qui commence" and "Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix", the latter of which is one of the most popular recital pieces in the mezzo-soprano/contralto repertoire.

Aaron Copland (November 14, 1900 – December 2, 1990) was an #American #composer, composition teacher, writer and later a #conductor of his own and other American music.
#AaronCopland was referred to by his peers and critics as "the Dean of American Composers." The open, slowly changing harmonies in much of his music are typical of what many people consider to be the sound of American music, evoking the vast American landscape and pioneer spirit. #Copland is best known for the works he wrote in the 1930s and 1940s in a deliberately accessible style often referred to as "populist" and which the composer labelled his "vernacular" style. Works in this vein include the ballets #AppalachianSpring, ‘Billy the Kid' and 'Rodeo', his #FanfarefortheCommonMan and 'Third Symphony'. In addition to his ballets and orchestral works, he produced music in many other genres including chamber music, vocal works, opera and film scores.

Candide is an #operetta with music composed by Leonard #Bernstein, based on the 1759 novella of the same name by #Voltaire.
The operetta was first performed in 1956 with a libretto by Lillian Hellman; but since 1974 it has been generally performed with a book by #HughWheeler which is more faithful to Voltaire's novel. 
The primary lyricist was the poet Richard Wilbur. Other contributors to the text were John Latouche, Dorothy Parker, Lillian Hellman, Stephen Sondheim, John Mauceri, John Wells, and Bernstein himself. Maurice Peress and Hershy Kay contributed orchestrations.
Although unsuccessful at its premiere, #Candide has now overcome the unenthusiastic reaction of early audiences and critics and achieved enormous popularity. It is very popular among major music schools as a student show because of the quality of its music and the opportunities it offers to student singers.

Maurice Greene (12 August 1696 – 1 December 1755) was an #English #composer and #organist.
He wrote very competent music in the Georgian style, particularly long Verse Anthems. His acknowledged masterpiece, 'Lord, let me know mine end', is a representative example. #MauriceGreene sets a text full of pathos using a polyphonic texture over a continuous instrumental walking bass, with a particularly effective treble duet in the middle of the work. Both this section and the end of the anthem contain superb examples of the Neapolitan sixth chord.

The Suite for Variety Orchestra (post-1956) is a suite in eight movements by Dmitri #Shostakovich. The work consists of a collection of movements which derive from other works by the composer. It is also named 'Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra', for example in Derek Hulme's Shostakovich catalogue.
For many years the Suite for Variety Orchestra was misidentified as the "lost" Suite for Jazz Orchestra No. 2 (1938), a different work in three movements that was lost during World War II, the piano score of which was rediscovered in 1999 by Manashir Yakubov, and orchestrated the following year by Gerard McBurney.
