1792 Cipriani Potter – English composer, pianist, conductor and educator (d.1871); met Beethoven in Vienna in 1817 and was soloist in the English premieres of Beethoven’s 1st, 3rd and 4th piano concertos; wrote 10 symphonies, the last of which was praised by Richard Wagner.

1822 first performance of Beethoven’s Consecration of the House Overture Op 124, for the opening of the Josephstadt Theater in Vienna; the first work Beethoven wrote after his revival of studying the works of J. S. Bach and Handel, and bears their influence.

1828 Woldemar Bargiel – German composer (d.1897); half-brother of Clara Schumann with whom Bargiel enjoyed a warm relationship; Bargiel served with Johannes Brahms as co-editor of the complete editions of the works of Robert Schumann and Frédéric Chopin.

1860 first performance of Johannes Brahms's Serenade No. 1 in Hanover, Joseph Joachim conducting; the Serenades Nos. 1 and 2 are two of the earliest efforts by Brahms to write orchestral music.

1888 premiere of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Yeoman of the Guard at the Savoy Theater, London; set in the Tower of London during the 16th century, it is the darkest, and perhaps most emotionally engaging, of the Savoy Operas, ending with a broken-hearted main character and two very reluctant engagements.

1923 Stanislaw Skrowaczewski – Polish-American conductor and composer (died February 21, 2017); made his American debut with the Cleveland Orchestra; best known for his work with the Minnesota Orchestra.

1929 first performance of Sir William Walton's Viola Concerto, by the Queen's Hall Orchestra conducted by the composer, with Paul Hindemith as soloist.        

1936 Steve Reich – American composer (82 years old); along with La Monte Young, Terry Riley, and Philip Glass, pioneered minimalism in the mid to late 1960s.
