17 July 17

Three hundred years ago today, Handel's "Water Music" premiered! You can listen to a beautiful concert hall rendition at this link. Today also marks the 82nd birthday of Peter Schickele, who has been discovering the unpublished musical works of P. D. Q. Bach since 1965, and the 1928 birthday of jazz musician and pianist Vince Guaraldi, who is most famous for his compositions for the animated Peanuts® cartoons.
