This month in 1988, The Proclaimers released their seventh studio album "Sunshine On Leith" featuring the unforgettable hit single "I Wanna Be (500 Miles)" . Today we celebrate its 30th anniversary.

Fun Fact : The song didn't see any popularity in North America until 5 years later, when it was re-released as a single, due to its appearance in the American film Benny & Joon.

✴➡️-From @ghmusicfreak - Jacques François Antoine Marie Ibert (15 August 1890 – 5 February 1962) was a #French composer. Having studied music from an early age, he studied at the Paris Conservatoire and won its top prize, the Prix de Rome at his first attempt, despite studies interrupted by his service in World War I.
#JacquesIlbert pursued a successful composing career, writing (sometimes in collaboration with other composers) seven operas, five ballets, incidental music for plays and films, songs, choral works, and chamber music.
As a #composer, #Ibert did not attach himself to any of the prevalent genres of music of his time, and has been described as an eclectic. This is seen even in his best-known pieces: 'Divertissement', for small orchestra is lighthearted, even frivolous, and 'Escales' (1922) is a ripely romantic work for large orchestra.

Marion Eugénie Bauer (15 August 1882 – 9 August 1955) was an #American composer, teacher, writer, and music critic. A contemporary of #AaronCopland, Bauer played an active role in shaping American musical identity in the early half of the twentieth century.
As a #composer, Bauer wrote for piano, chamber ensembles, symphonic orchestra, solo voice, and vocal ensembles. #MarionBauer's music includes dissonance and extended tertian, quartal and quintal harmonies, though it rarely goes outside the bounds of extended tonality, save for her brief experimentation with #serialism in the 1940s.
Bauer also wrote extensively about music: she was the editor for the Chicago-based Musical Leader and additionally authored and co-authored several books including her 1933 text Twentieth Century Music.
Throughout her life, Bauer promoted not only her own work but new music in general.

#ColeridgeTaylor achieved such success that he was referred to by white New York musicians as the "African #Mahler" at the time when he had three tours of the United States in the early 1900s. He was particularly known for his three cantatas based on the epic poem, 'Song of Hiawatha' by American Henry Wadsworth #Longfellow. Coleridge-Taylor premiered the first section in 1898, when he was 22.

Julius Katchen (August 15, 1926 – April 29, 1969) was an  #American concert #pianist, possibly best known for his recordings of Johannes #Brahms's solo piano works.
#Katchen was born in Long Branch, New Jersey, and debuted at age 10, playing #Mozart's D minor Concerto. In the late 1960s he recorded the Brahms trios for Decca with #JosefSuk and #JánosStarker. He also recorded the three violin sonatas with Suk, and the second cello sonata with Starker; but sadly he died before they could record the first sonata.
In December 1968, Katchen played at a two-day show in London hosted by the #RollingStones. Katchen played two works (one of them #deFalla's Ritual Fire Dance).
A six-disc set of Johannes Brahms's 'Works for Solo Piano' (#Decca) is highly regarded and often cited as one of the best available recordings of Brahms's piano music. In 2016, Decca released a 36-disc set of his complete recordings for the label.
