Italian Baroque composer and violinist Pietro Antonio Locatelli died in Amsterdam, his adopted city, where he had lived since 1729. Best remembered for his concertos, Locatelli's compositions can be divided into three groups: work for his own performances as a virtuoso, works for larger ensembles and chamber music.
I. Andante ma non troppo
I. La Rameau: Majestueusement
IV. Allegro non troppo
Part I: Chorale: Herr, unser Herrscher (Chorus)
Part I: Recitative: Jesus ging mit seinen Jungern (Evangelist, Jesus)
Part I: Chorale: Jesum von Nazareth (Chorus)
Thirteen-year-old Leonard Bernstein gave his public début recital at the piano, in Boston. Despite his apparent talent on the piano at a young age, his career-oriented father actively dissuaded him from his musical endeavors, forcing the teenage Bernstein to raise money himself for his music lessons. Eventually his musical prowess became undeniable and his father relented, buying him a baby grand piano for his Bar Mitzvah. This set the stage for Bernstein to go on to study piano at the Boston Latin School and at Harvard University.
