December 17

1749 Domenico Cimarosa – Italian composer (d.1801); wrote more than 80 operas including his masterpiece, Il matrimonio segreto (The Secret Marriage, 1792).

1853 the 20-year-old Johannes Brahms makes his public debut at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig playing his Piano Sonata No. 1 in C Op 1 and Scherzo in E-Flat minor Op 4, during a chamber concert of the David Quartet.

1865 first performance of Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 in b ‘Unfinished’ in Vienna, Johann von Herbeck conducting, 37 years after the composer’s death; for this performance, the last movement of Schubert's Symphony No. 3 was appended as a finale.

1879 first performance of Dvorák’s String Quartet No. 10 Op 51 in Prague; sometimes called the ‘Slavonic’ Quartet.

1887 first performance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol, in St. Petersburg by the Russian Symphony with the composer conducting.

1953 first performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 in St. Petersburg by the Leningrad Philharmonic, Yevgeny Mravinsky conducting; the composer’s first symphonic work since his denunciation in 1948, so it has a significance comparable to that of the Fifth Symphony in relation to the 1936 denunciation; the 10th may or may not be about Joseph Stalin, who had died in March of 1953.
