March 18 Birthdays

On March 18 we observe the birthdays of Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908), Japanese violist Nobuko Imai (1943-), and American conductor James Conlon (1950-). Rimsky-Korsakov was one of The Mighty Handful of Russian composers that included Mily Balakirev, César Cui, Modest Mussorgsky, and Alexander Borodin. After studying at Julliard and Yale, Ms. Imai has gone on to have a distinguished career performing and teaching. A native of Douglaston, Queens, New York, Maestro Conlon is currently Music Director of Los Angeles Opera and Principal Conductor of the Italian RAI National Symphony Orchestra.
