    I share a birthday with the German composer Hans Werner Henze. I'm playing one of his pieces on guitar funnily enough!

    My dad shares a birthday with Alban Berg. Lucky him.

    Right where I am it is 12:55 am on the sixteenth of December. Beethoven is 241 years old. (or is his birthday the seventeenth?)

    This is a really good list of composers' birthdays. Announce birthdays for commemoration!

    Could someone actually make this link a sticky in itself? I think a lot of people would like to see it.

    I never really cared that much for Kabalevsky. Might have to go re-listen to some of his stuff.

    I love Balakirev, and I just learned that his birthday was yesterday! I was beaten... which is a good thing since he got a timely birthday recognition. But rest assured, I'm not going to miss the two birthday's to come thursday and friday!
