October 30

1881 first performance of Peter Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in St. Petersburg; on the second page of the score, Tchaikovsky wrote, "The larger number of players in the string orchestra, the more this shall be in accordance with the author's wishes."

1894 Peter Warlock (real name, Philip Heseltine) – English composer, critic, author (d.1930); best known as a composer of songs and other vocal music; also achieved notoriety in his lifetime through his unconventional and often scandalous lifestyle; had a reputation as a combative and controversial music critic; died in his London flat of coal gas poisoning, probably by his own hand.

1896 first performance of Amy Beach's 'Gaelic' Symphony, by the Boston Symphony at the Music Hall in Boston, Emil Paur conducting; this was an afternoon open rehearsal performance; the official premiere took place the following evening.

1944 premiere of Aaron Copland's ballet Appalachian Spring at the Library of Congress in Washington DC by the Martha Graham Ballet Company with a 13-piece chamber orchestra. 

1946 René Jacobs – Belgian conductor (72 years old); came to fame as a countertenor but has become renowned as a conductor of Baroque and early Classical opera.

1949 premiere of Kurt Weill's musical Lost in the Stars at the Music Box Theatre in New York with book and lyrics by Maxwell Anderson; based on the novel Cry, the Beloved Country (1948) by Alan Paton; composer's last work for the stage before he died the following year.

1957 Shlomo Mintz – Russian-born Israeli violinist, violist and conductor (61 years old); one of the main actors in the Violins of Hope project with violinmaker Amnon Weinstein, involving violins of owners who lost their lives in ghettos and concentration camps during World War II and restored by Mr. Weinstein.

1957 first performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 11 'The Year 1905' in Moscow; subtitle refers to the events of the Russian Revolution of 1905; conceived as a popular piece and was an instant success in Russia—his greatest since the Leningrad Symphony just over a decade earlier.
