Celebrate the intimate beauty of the Sonata with duets and trios spanning three centuries, including Samuel Barber’s recently rediscovered Sonata in F Minor, Brahms’ great “Sonatensatz” and the excitingly different 20th century sonatas of contemporaries Elliott Carter and Francis Poulenc.

July 17th is my birthday, and I thought I’d do a post about some of the interesting and significant historical events related to royalty that happened today, both good and bad.

In 1402, The Yongle Emperor assumed the throne over the Ming Dynasty in China. He is the Emperor responsible for the construction of the “Forbidden City”, which remained the home of the Chinese Emperors and their households for nearly 500 years.

In 1429, Charles VII was crowned King of France in the Reims Cathedral, after a campaign led by Joan of Arc.

In 1717, George I sailed down the River Thames in a barge with 50 musicians, where Handel’s “Water Music” was played for the first time.

In 1762, Catherine the Great became the ruler of Russia upon the death of her husband, Peter III.

In 1917, George V issued a proclamation changing the name of the British Royal Family from the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to the House of Windsor. This was done due to the anti-German sentiment in the Empire at the time, during World War I.

In 1918, Tsar Nicholas II, his wife and their five children, along with their servants who had accompanied them into exile, were brutally murdered in the basement of Ipatiev house in Yekaterinburg.

In 1973, Mohammed Zahir Shah, the King of Afghanistan, was deposed by his cousin while undergoing eye surgery in Italy.

In 1981, the Humber Bridge was formally opened by Elizabeth II, near Kingston upon Hull in England.
