Forsooth Opera Lovers!

Today we can celebrate the birthdays of:

Edith Mathis (1938)
Michel Senechal (1927)
Rudolf Firkusny (1912-1994)
Alexander Gibson (1926-1995)

Also, the following works premiered on this date:

Verdi's "I Lombardi" (1843)
Tchaikovsky's "Voyevoda" (1869)
Wolf-Ferrari's "Il Campiello" (1936)
Donizetti's "La Fille du Regiment" (1840)

Let us remember Giovanni Zenatello(1876-1949) who passed away on this date.

The quote for today is: "Performers have to recognize that in their 
profession they are exposed to an entire public which has varied 
tastes and opinions and, whether they like the opinion or not, they 
are subject to them. You have to be philosophical about criticism; 
you shouldn't be crushed if it's unjust and, if it is just, learn 
from it."
Rudolf Firkusny.

As always, a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our birthday artists for today 
and all forum members who share their birthday with them.

contributions to the world of classical music.

Bob Dilley
