1860 Isaac Albéniz - Spanish composer (d.1909); best known for his piano works based on folk music idioms.

1897 Erich Wolfgang Korngold - Austrian-born American composer (d.1957); esteemed as one of the founders of the ‘Hollywood Sound’; his 1938 Academy Award for the score to The Adventures of Robin Hood marked the first time an Oscar was awarded to the composer rather than the head of the studio music department.

1913 premiere of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring (Le sacre du printemps); written for the Paris season of Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes company, with choreography by Vaslav Nijinsky; the premiere precipitated a near-riot at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées.

1933 Helmut Rilling - German choral conductor (83 years old); founder of the Gächinger Kantorei (1954), the Bach-Collegium Stuttgart (1965), the Oregon Bach Festival (1970) and other Bach Academies worldwide.

1953 Danny Elfman -  American composer (63 years old); lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Oingo Boingo, from 1976 to 1995, later wrote music for television and film, scoring the majority of the films for his long-time friend, director Tim Burton.

1955 Pascal Dusapin - French composer (61 years old); his music is marked by its micro-tonality, tension, and energy.
