1803 Hector Berlioz – French composer and conductor (d.1869); extremely influential in the development of the symphonic form, instrumentation, and the depiction in music of programmatic and literary ideas, features central to Romanticism; considered extremely progressive for his day, and he, Wagner, and Liszt have been called the ‘Great Trinity of Progress’ of 19th-century Romanticism.

1908 Elliott Carter – American composer (d.2013); twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize; mature style marked by atonality and rhythmic complexity; extremely productive in his later years, publishing more than 40 works between the ages of 90 and 100, and over 20 more after he turned 100.
