Today is J.C. Bach's birthday, as well as John Cage's. I had to laugh because my radio station announced that it didn't have time to play all of Cage's 4'33 and instead played only a few seconds of it, which meant a few seconds of nothing. (Must have been a joke) Then they switched to a nice JCB oboe and string quartet that was really lovely. It's also the anniversary of Sir Georg Solti's death today. He is (was) (still is) 'big' in Chicago, having conducted 999 performances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
