17 Jul. 1971
Helsinki, Finland
 he has written a relatively small body of polished, bright and complex Modernist works. His logical and unsentimental aesthetic approach is related to that of Brian Ferneyhough, with whom he has studied in France and the USA. His translucent sound ideal can even be seen in the instrumental lineup of such works as ...genom det tomma rummet (...through the empty room, 1994) for soprano, oboe and vibraphone, or Asteria (1994) for flute, oboe and clarinet. A similar approach is at work in Codename Orpheus (1995–97) for chamber ensemble and Quatuor à Royaumont (1996–2000) for clarinet (also bass clarinet), violin, cello and piano, a work that typically for its composer was long in the making

26 Feb 1770
Padua, Italy
Italian composer and violinist. There is a legend that when Giuseppe Tartini heard Francesco Maria Veracini's playing in 1716, he was so impressed by it and so dissatisfied with his own skill, that he fled to Ancona and locked himself away in a room to practice. Tartini's skill improved tremendously and in 1721 he was appointed Kapellmeister at Il Santo in Padua, with a contract that allowed him to play for other institutions if he wanted to. In 1726 Tartini started a violin school which attracted students from all over Europe. Gradually Tartini became more interested in the theory of harmony and acoustics, and from 1750 to the end of his life he published various treatises

Taverner, John
more...
c.149018 Oct. 1545
Boston, Lins.
regarded as being the most important English composer of his day, Taverner was briefly arrested as choirmaster at Cardinal College, Oxford for possible Lutheran sympathies, and later became an agent of Thomas Cromwell in the dissolution of the monasteries. He was also an organist. His mass Gloria tibi Trinitas gave origin to style of instrumental work known as an 'In nomine'. Although the mass is in six parts, some more virtuosic sections are in reduced numbers of parts, presumably intended for soloists, a compositional technique used in several of his masses. The section at the words "in nomine..." in the Benedictus is in four parts, with the plainchant in the alto. This section of the mass became popular as an instrumental work for viol consort. Other composers came to write instrumental works modelled on this, and the name 'In nomine' was given to works of this type.

between May 19, 1413 and 1416Italian composer, singer and papal secretary of the late trecento and early 15th century. He was one of the most active Italian composers working c.1400, and his style bridged the periods of the trecento, ars subtilior, and beginnings of the musical Renaissance. His bizarre Sumite, karissimi, capud de Remulo, patres has been called the most rhythmically complex composition of the entire ars subtilior

Barcelona-born Terradellas enjoyed a lucrative if stormy career in Italy and London, where he was caught up in rivalry with Handel. Moving to Paris, he found his name and music used as a stick by Rousseau to belabour the formal complexities of Rameau and the French court composers. He died sensationally in Rome shortly after the premiere of his last opera Sesostri. The accepted story is that he was stabbed by assassins hired by jealous rival composer Niccolo Jommelli and his body thrown into the Tiber

Thérache, Pierrequin de

c.14701528a little-known composer, a contemporary of Josquin (c.1450-1521), from the ducal court of Lorraine at the city of Nancy, whose motet Verbum bonum, attained international circulation. His other works have only slowly come to light. A nearly illegible mass in a Spanish manuscript based on Fortuna desperata attributed to Pierquin may have been written by Therache, but it is claimed by some scholars for Spanish or Italian composers. The authorship of the Cambrai mass Missa Coment peult avoir joye, one of striking quality, is secured by a comment from a contemporary music theorist, Nicolaus Wollick, in 1512, who comments on the mensural canon of the last movement and ascribes the mass to "Pierrequin de Nancy."

1859
Islington, London, UK
1929Charles le Thiere was born Thomas Wilby Tomkins. He was the son of a goldsmith and jeweler based in Clerkenwell, and married Ada Jackson in December 1878. H. Macaulay-Fitzgibbon in his book The Flute (1913) describes le Thiere as one of the outstanding piccolo players of his day, who was less successful on the flute. Gerald Jackson in his book The Flute (1968) mentions le Thiere as someone who would stand outside a public house, touting for work as a writer of music for a fee, which once the piece was handed over and the fee paid, the money would be spent on drink. Despite this, and before falling on hard times, le Thiere wrote many pieces, including L'oiseau du bois and Danse de Satyrs (both for piccolo), The Royal Tour for piano solo and both Sunrise on the Mountains and Village Life in the Olden Times which John Held of Utah, U.S., arranged for his band in the 1890s. Le Thiere also arranged The Punjaub March written by Charles Payne. There is surviving an undated letter written by le Thiere, then 70 years of age, from a workhouse. We can assume that he died in poverty

Nivelles
Flemish composer and music theorist of the Renaissance. He is known to have studied in Orleans, and to have been master of the choir there; he also may have been director of choirboys at Chartres. Because he was employed at Cambrai Cathedral for four months in 1460, it has been speculated that he studied with Dufay, who spent the last part of his life there; certainly Tinctoris must at least have known the elder Burgundian there. Tinctoris went to Naples in 1472 and spent most of the rest of his life in Italy. He wrote the first dictionary of musical terms (the Diffinitorium musices); a book on the characteristics of the musical modes; a treatise on proportions; and a book on counterpoint, which is particularly useful in charting the development of voice-leading and harmony in the transitional period between Dufay and Josquin. The writings by Tinctoris were influential on composers and other music theorists for the remainder of the Renaissance

 an exceptionally well qualified musician who has made a valid contribution mainly in the field of light music. A chorister at Manchester Cathedral pre-War, his studies at Manchester University and later at the RMCM where he studied organ, clarinet, piano and composition were punctuated by war time service in the RAF. Work as an arranger for Arcadia and Mills Music and as an organist in London was followed by the formation of the Ernest Tomlinson Light Orchestra and Singers in 1955 and later the Northern Concert Orchestra. The latter was inaugurated in 1969. Yet many of his orchestral compositions have an 'old-fashioned" look about them, Tomlinson showing that traditional light music could hold its place even in the world of pop

Most intriguingly, as a synesthete, Torke has composed numerous pieces which include colours in the titles, which he later made into the suite Color Music

1590the adopted surname of this family was del Cornetto because of their skill on wind instruments. As a cornet player, Asconio played with the choir of S. Petronio in Bologna. He received a regular appointment with the chapel in 1573. The madrigals which he set were arranged for three to five voices and the motets were arranged for five to twelve voices. The former compositions were characterized by elegant and sonorous lines and the latter were characterized by counterpoint. A number of reprints of these compositions appeared during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries illustrating their popularity. His daughter Isabella was herself a nun trombonist and organist at the convent of Santi Gervasio e Protasio

22 Feb. 17611 Sep. 1814the first classical Finnish composer, he studied at the Academy of Turku from 1776 but moved to Oulu (Uleåborg) in 1784 to take up a post as a civil servant. He moved back to Turku in 1809 and remained there for the rest of his life. Tulindberg's limited output was probably written during his early years in Turku amidst his studies, the lively social life of a student and his work as an amanuensis in the library. His output consists of a Violin Concerto in B flat major, six String Quartets and one solo violin work. Tulindberg played the violin himself, and the solo part of his Violin Concerto is written in quite a natural idiom. In conception, however, it is simpler than his String Quartets and thus probably earlier. The String Quartets are written in a full-fledged Viennese Classical style, closely related to Haydn's quartets. In fact, Tulindberg is known to have bought a copy of Haydn's Quartets op. 9 (1769–70) in 1781; these may have served as a model. At his best, Tulindberg demonstrates original structural ideas and a fresh melodic vein; by contrast, his harmonies and quartet textures are quite simple
