Musical Quote for Today

"In order to please everybody at once, it is necessary to compromise, and in questions of art, he who compromises is sure to disappear in a short time."
—Richard Wagner, composer

What happened on this day in music history?

In Vienna, Austria in 1824, Ludwig van Beethoven appeared on a public concert platform for the last time. The occasion was the premiere of his Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, the "Choral" symphony.
