1832 Henry Clay Work – American composer (d.1884); a printer by trade, he wrote some famous popular songs, including Grandfather's Clock, Father, Come Home, and Marching through Georgia.

1865 Paul Dukas – French composer, critic, scholar and teacher (d.1935); so intensely self-critical, he abandoned and destroyed many of his compositions; best-known work is The Sorcerer's Apprentice; also wrote an opera (Ariane et Barbe-bleue), a symphony, and a ballet, La Péri.

1913 first performance of Sir Edward Elgar's Falstaff at the Leeds Festival with the composer conducting; a portrait of Sir John Falstaff, the ‘fat knight’ of Shakespeare's Henry IV parts 1 and 2.

1924 Opening of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, funded by a gift of $12.5 million from the American patroness Mary Louise Curtis Bok; faculty included Leopold Stokowski and Josef Hofmann heading the conducting and piano departments, harpist/composer Carlos Salzedo, and composer Rosario Scalero.

1931 Sylvano Bussotti – Italian composer (77 years old); also a well-known film director, actor, and singer; notoriously flamboyant and occasionally shocking: staged a high-profile resignation from the Venice Biennale in 1991 by bringing in a famous prostitute to give the keynote speech.

1998 first performance of the Emerson Concerto by Charles Ives (arr David G. Porter) for piano and orchestra, with soloist Alan Feinberg and the Cleveland Orchestra, Christoph von Dohnányi conducting.

2005 premiere of the John Adams opera Dr. Atomic in San Francisco by the San Francisco Opera, Donald Runnicles, conducting.
