1901 Werner Egk – German composer (d.1983); born Werner Joseph Mayer, and it is said—but denied by the composer—that the he chose the acronym E-G-K because it stood for 'ein grosser Komponist' (a great composer).

1939 premiere of Prokofiev's cantata Alexander Nevsky based on the score for the 1938 Sergei Eisenstein film, in Moscow with the composer conducting.
