Clara Schumann and Arnold Schonberg born on the same day?
From now on I'm ditching astrology.

Nice idea, Madonna Elvira. And I just learnt that Clara Schumann's middle name was ... Josephine.

For tomorrow, on September 14, 1760, Maria Luigi Cherubini was born in Florence, dying in 1842 in Paris.

Piso Mojado says:
Schoenberg had a strong fear of the number 13 ... there's a fine word for this condition, but I have never learnt it ... and on the night he died he thought he had beaten the jinx, as the clocks were off, but he actually died on the 13th.

Triskaidekaphobia, perhaps?

I consider all astrology to be complete rubbish, but that just makes me a typical Aquarius!

You're welcome.

"It's lacking...."

Not sure to what is your referring with 'it's'. The link I posted has 3 of 4 of your listed contemporary composers on their calendar. ???

Dmitri Shostakovich - September 25th, 1906

If you count back nine months it was Christmas day 1905. Mama and Papa Shostakovich must have been trying to keep warm:-) LOL
