1841 Antonín Dvorák – Bohemian composer (d.1904); played a prominent role in the development of American music, and one of the most versatile composers of his time; frequently employed features of the folk music of Moravia and his native Bohemia; his own style has been described as "the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them."

1894 Willem Pijper – Dutch composer, music critic and music teacher (d.1947); among the most important Dutch composers of the first half of the 20th century.

1929 Christoph von Dohnányi – German conductor (88 years old); made his conducting debut with The Cleveland Orchestra in December 1981; soon after was appointed music director-designate and served as music director from 1984 until August 2002.

1933 Eric Salzman – American composer, scholar, author, impresario, music critic, and record producer (died November 12, 2017); known for advancing the concept of ‘New Music Theater’ as an independent art form differing in scope from Grand opera and contemporary popular musicals.

1934 Peter Maxwell Davies – English composer, conductor (d.2016); Master of the Queen's Music for 10 years beginning in 2004; succeeded by Judith Weir.

1970 Lars Vogt – German pianist (48 years old); especially interested in chamber music, founding the festival Spannungen in Heimbach, Germany in 1998.

1976 Ilan Volkov – Israeli conductor (42 years old); became Chief Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony in 2003, at the time, the youngest chief conductor appointed to a BBC orchestra; in 2011, the Iceland Symphony named him its 9th chief conductor and music director; curator of Tectonics Music Festival in Reykjavik.
