A shoulder to cry on: When Schumann died in 1856, Brahms immediately went to Düsseldorf to be with Schumann's wife, Clara. It's unclear exactly what kind of relationship the two had, but they destroyed a large amount of their letters to each other, possibly suggesting that they had something to hide…

Vincenzo Salvatore Carmelo Francesco Bellini (3 November 1801 – 23 September 1835) was an #Italian opera #composer, who was known for his long-flowing melodic lines for which he was named "the Swan of Catania".
Many years later, in 1898, Giuseppe #Verdi "praised the broad curves of #Bellini's melody: 'there are extremely long melodies as no-one else had ever made before' "
In considering which of his operas can be seen to be his greatest successes over the almost two hundred years since his death, 'Il pirata' laid much of the groundwork in 1827, achieving very early recognition in comparison to #Donizetti's having written thirty operas before his major 1830 triumph with 'Anna Bolena'. Both 'I Capuleti ed i Montecchi' at La Fenice in 1830 and 'La sonnambula' in Milan in 1831 reached new triumphal heights, although initially 'Norma', given at La Scala in 1831 did not fare as well until later performances elsewhere. "The genuine triumph" of I puritani in January 1835 in Paris capped a significant career. Certainly, 'Capuleti', 'La sonnambula', 'Norma', and 'I puritani' are regularly performed today.
After his initial success in Naples, most of the rest of his short life was spent outside of both Sicily and Naples, those years being followed with his living and composing in Milan and Northern Italy, and—after a visit to London—then came his final masterpiece in Paris, 'I puritani'.
Only nine months later, #VincenzoBellini died in Puteaux, France at the age of 33.

Asal mula kata piano sebenarnya berasal dari bahasa Italia, yaitu pianoforte. Piano itu sendiri dibuat oleh Bartolomeo Cristofori pada tahun 1720-an. Awal mula piano diciptakan, suaranya tidak sekeras piano yang dapat didengar pada abad 20-an. Pasalnya, tegangan tuts piano kala itu tidaklah sekuat piano yang sekarang.🎹
. 
Kini, piano pertama tersebut dipajang di Metropolitan Museum of Art di New York. Seperti pada banyak penemuan yang lainnya, piano ditemukan berdasarkan penemuan teknologi. Awalnya, piano dikembangkan dari alat musik kecapi. Perbedaannya, kecapi dimainkan dengan dipetik. Sedangkan piano ditekan tuts-tutsnya.🎹
.
Piano merupakan alat musik yang bisa dimasukkan dalam kategori alat musik tertua, sekaligus termahal di dunia. Banyak legenda musisi papan atas legendaris sekelas Bethoven, Mozart dan teman-temannya yang menggunakan piano sebagai alat musik utamanya.🎹

Guillaume de Machaut (c. 1300 – April 1377) was a #medieval #French #poet and #composer.
#DeMachaut is regarded by many musicologists as the greatest and most important composer of the 14th century. One of the earliest composers on whom significant biographical information is available, Daniel Leech-Wilkinson called Machaut "the last great poet who was also a composer". Well into the 15th century, Machaut's #poetry was greatly admired and imitated by other poets, including #GeoffreyChaucer.
#Machaut composed in a wide range of styles and forms. He is a part of the musical movement known as the #arsnova. Machaut helped develop the #motet and secular song forms (particularly the lai and the #formesfixes: rondeau, virelai and ballade). Machaut wrote the 'Messe de Nostre Dame', the earliest known complete setting of the 'Ordinary of the Mass' attributable to a single composer.

Gilles de Binche, called #Binchois (ca. 1400 – 20 September 1460), was a #Netherlandish #composer, one of the earliest members of the #Burgundianschool and one of the three most famous composers of the early 15th century. While often ranked behind his contemporaries #GuillaumeDufay and #JohnDunstable by contemporary scholars, his works were still cited, borrowed and used as source material after his death.
Binchois is often considered to be the finest melodist of the 15th century, writing carefully shaped lines which are not only easy to sing but utterly memorable. His tunes appeared in copies decades after his death, and were often used as sources for Mass composition by later composers.

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 Elisha J. King published The Sacred Harp 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, D. P. White, perhaps clarifying ownership. In 1911, White's youngest son, James Landrum White, reissued this fourth edition with a supplement of newer gospel songs. #BenjaminFranklinWhite also taught music; among his pupils was Sarah Lancaster.

Epstein was rejected by nearly all major recording companies in London, until he secured a meeting with #GeorgeMartin, head of EMI's Parlophone label. In May 1962, Martin agreed to sign the Beatles, partly because of #Epstein's conviction that the group would become internationally famous.

Being employed at Vienna as a nursemaid, her fine #soprano voice led to her being engaged as a chorus singer, and she was given lessons in music. By 1882, she became well known in #Wagnerian roles at the Leipzig theatre, and she increased her reputation by appearing at other German musical centres. In 1892, she appeared in London, and had a great success in #Wagner's operas, notably as Brünnhilde and as Isolde, her dramatic as well as vocal gifts being of an exceptional order. She sang with the Damrosch Opera Company in America in 1895, but died of brain cancer in 1896.
#KatharinaKlafsky was married to the conductor #OttoLohse.

Nikos Skalkottas (21 March 1904 – 19 September 1949) was a #Greek #composer of 20th-century classical music. A member of the #SecondVienneseSchool, he drew his influences from both the classical repertoire and the Greek tradition.
Throughout his career #NikosSkalkottas remained faithful to the #neoclassical ideals of #NeueSachlichkeit and "#absolutemusic" proclaimed in Europe in the 1925. Already in Berlin he was taking an interest in #jazz and at the same time developing a very personal form of the twelve-note method, making use of not one but several tone-rows in a work and organizing these rows to define different thematic and harmonic areas. (For example, the 'Largo Sinfonico' employs no less than 16 twelve-tone rows.) Like #Schoenberg, he persistently cultivated classical forms (such as sonata, variations, suite), but his worklist is divided between atonal, twelve-tone and tonal works, all three categories spanning his entire composing career. Such apparent heterogeneity could have been intensified by a love of Greek folk music. The most striking example of his commitment to Greek folk music is the series of '36 Greek Dances' composed for orchestra between 1931 and 1936, arranged for various different ensembles in the ensuing years and in part radically reorchestrated in 1948–49. About two-thirds of these dances are based on genuine Greek folk themes from different parts of the Greek mainland and islands, but the other third use material of #Skalkottas's own composition in folk style.

Marguerite-Antoinette Couperin (19 September 1705 – c. 1778) was a #French #harpsichordist, the first woman to hold the position of ordinaire de la musique de la chambre du roi pour le clavecin (court musician to the King of France).
The #Couperin family were a dynastic French musical family of professional composers and performers first mentioned in 1366.
#MargueriteAntoinetteCouperin was born in Paris, the daughter of #FrançoisCouperin (the Great). She became active at the French court from at least 1729 (she is mentioned in an article in the Mercure de France).
On 16 February 1730 she succeeded her father in the office of Ordinary musician of the King's chamber for the harpsichord when her father retired. This was a feature of French courtly music in which musicians were able to bequeath or sell their positions in a system called survivance. The title Ordinaire is the most junior rank in the hierarchy of the court's musicians and reflected her age and relative inexperience.
She was the first woman to take up a position as court musician. She also taught harpsichord to Louis XV's daughters.

Katiuska (1931) was #Sorozábal’s stage debut, and the twenty or so zarzuelas which followed combine lyric fire and inimitable orchestration with an unfailing sense of theatre. Best-loved are his classic madrileño comedy La del manojo de rosas (1934) and the “nautical romance” set on the Atlantic Coast La tabernera del puerto of 1936.
#Sorozabal also wrote scores for non-musical films, notably the classic Spanish film Marcelino Pan y Vino (1955).

Mauricio Raúl Kagel (Spanish pronunciation: [mauˈɾisjo ˈkaɣel]; December 24, 1931 – September 18, 2008) was a #German-#Argentine #composer notable for developing the theatrical side of musical performance.
Some of #MauricioKagel’s pieces give specific theatrical instructions to the performers, such as to adopt certain facial expressions while playing, to make their stage entrances in a particular way, to physically interact with other performers, and so on. For this reason commentators at times related his work to the Theatre of the Absurd. He has been regarded by music historians as deploying a critical intelligence interrogating the position of music in society. In 1991 Kagel was invited by Walter Fink as the second composer featured in the annual Komponistenporträt of the Rheingau Musik Festival. In 2000 he received the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize.
Staatstheater (1970) remains, probably, #Kagel’s best-known work. It is the piece that most clearly shows his absurdist tendency.

Lieutenant Colonel (Dr) Ray Steadman-Allen (18 September 1922 – 15 December 2014) was a #British #composer of choral and brass band music for the Salvation Army and for band competition.
Much of #SteadmanAllen’s music was ahead of its time, to the point that it was sometimes considered unacceptable to the listener. ‘Lord of the Sea’ created a furore. His creativity has been given totally to God and has been instrumental in guiding Salvation Army music into uncharted territory, particularly when the International Music Editorial Department was under his leadership between 1967 and 1980.

His creativity has been given totally to God and has been instrumental in guiding Salvation Army music into uncharted territory, particularly when the International Music Editorial Department was under his leadership between 1967 and 1980. #music  #musicfact  #musicfacts  #classicalmusic  #weloveclassicalmusic  #RaySteadmanAllen 
The New Venice School is a movement in contemporary music in #Venice from the 1970s to the present, made up of composers directly influenced from teachings at the #VeniceConservatory of the distinguished composer and pedagogue Baron #ErnestoRubindeCervin, who studied under Luigi #Dallapiccola in Florence and #GoffredoPetrassi in Rome.
His many students include #GiuseppeSinopoli, #MarinoBaratello, #ClaudioAmbrosini and #GeoffreyKing. Although not directly influenced by the legacy of Rubin de Cervin and the above-listed lineage, other Venetian composers were influential in the development of new music in Venice, namely #BrunoMaderna and #LuigiNono.
There is no specific musical style that characterizes the music of the New Venice movement: their musics are varied and include influences from #serialism and musical elements from #jazz are evident with a strong emphasis on modern #polyphony. Certainly, their influences include the indigenous history of Venetian music, including the influence of Arnold #Schoenberg and the #SecondVienneseSchool and experimental serial and post-serial developments at #Darmstadt, specifically the music of #KarlheinzStockhausen.

Gerald Hugh Tyrwhitt-Wilson, 14th Baron Berners[1] (18 September 1883 – 19 April 1950), also known as #GeraldTyrwhitt, was a #British #composer, novelist, painter and aesthete. He is usually referred to as #LordBerners.
Berners himself once said that he would have been a better composer if he had accepted fewer lunch invitations. But English composer #GavinBryars, quoted in Peter Dickinson’s biography of Berners, disagrees saying: "If he had spent more time on his music he could have become a duller composer". #DinahBirch, reviewing The Mad Boy, Lord Berners, My Grandmother and Me, a biography of Berners written by Robert's granddaughter, #SofkaZinovieff, concurs saying: "Had he committed himself to composition as his life's work, perhaps his legacy would have been more substantial. But his music might have been less innovative, for its amateur quality — 'amateur in the best sense', as #Stravinsky insisted — is inseparable from its distinctive flair".

Alberto Franchetti (18 September 1860 – 4 August 1942) was an #Italian opera #composer.
His first major success occurred in 1888 with his opera 'Asrael'. His operatic style combined #Wagnerianism and the traits of #Meyerbeer with Italian #verismo. During his life, critics sometimes referred to him as the "Meyerbeer of modern Italy."
Among the reasons for Franchetti's descent into obscurity is the fact that, after the promulgation of the Fascist Racial Laws of 1938, which largely disenfranchised Italy's Jewish population, Franchetti's works were banned from performance. This was despite a plea for tolerance on his behalf from Pietro #Mascagni to Benito #Mussolini, which was rejected, just before #Franchetti's death.
Recent revivals and recordings of 'Cristoforo Colombo' and 'Germania' (Berlin Oper 2006/7) show his work to be of genuine quality with a fine ability in orchestration and use of the chorus, symphonic in style. These traits, along with an unfortunate tendency for two-dimensional characters, were recognised early.

Isang Yun (17 September 1917 – 3 November 1995), was a #Korean-born #composer who made his later career in Germany.
Yun's primary musical concern was the development of Korean music by the means of Western avant garde music. After experimenting with 12-tone techniques Yun developed his own musical personality in his works of the early 1960s, post-serialistic "sound compositions". #IsangYun's music employed techniques associated with traditional Korean music, such as glissandi, pizzicati, portamenti, vibrati, and above all a very rich vocabulary of ornaments. Essential is the presence of multiple-melodic lines, which Yun called "Haupttöne" ("central" or "main tones").
In both Europe and the United States, Yun developed a strong reputation as a composer of #avantgarde music, assigned those signature elements of traditional Korean musical technique. The technical as well a stylistic difficulties of performing his very elaborate and ornamental music are not to be underestimated.

After experimenting with 12-tone techniques Yun developed his own musical personality in his works of the early 1960s, post-serialistic "sound compositions". #IsangYun 's music employed techniques associated with traditional Korean music, such as glissandi, pizzicati, portamenti, vibrati, and above all a very rich vocabulary of ornaments. Essential is the presence of multiple-melodic lines, which Yun called "Haupttöne" ("central" or "main tones"). In both Europe and the United States, Yun developed a strong reputation as a composer of #avantgarde  music, assigned those signature elements of traditional Korean musical technique. The technical as well a stylistic difficulties of performing his very elaborate and ornamental music are not to be underestimated. #music  #musicfact  #musicfacts  #classicalmusic  #weloveclassicalmusic 
Charles Tomlinson Griffes (September 17, 1884 – April 8, 1920) was an #American #composer for piano, chamber ensembles and voice.
His most famous works are the White Peacock, for piano (1915, orchestrated in 1919); his Piano Sonata (1917–18, revised 1919); a tone poem, The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Khan, after the fragment by Coleridge (1912, revised in 1916), and Poem for Flute and Orchestra (1918). He also wrote numerous programmatic pieces for piano, chamber ensembles, and for voice. The amount and quality of his music is impressive considering his short life and his full-time teaching job, and much of his music is still performed. His unpublished Sho-jo (1917), a one-act pantomimic drama based on #Japanese themes, is one of the earliest works by an American composer to show direct inspiration from the music of Japan.
