October 9

1826 premiere of Gioacchino Rossini's The Siege of Corinth (Le siège de Corinthe) in Paris; the composer's first French opera, also known in its Italian version as L'assedio di Corinto; a reworking of some of the music from the composer's 1820 opera for Naples, Maometto II.

1835 Camille Saint-Saëns – French composer, organist, conductor, and pianist (d.1921); began his career as a pioneer, introducing to France the symphonic poem and championing the works of Liszt and Wagner, but by the dawn of the 20th century, was an ultra-conservative, fighting the influence of Debussy and Richard Strauss; conductor Sir Thomas Beecham famously called Saint-Saëns “the greatest second-rate composer who ever lived.”

1891 premiere of Antonín Dvorák's Requiem in Birmingham, England, conducted by the composer; closer to the tradition of Cherubini than Verdi, its tone is compassionate and reflective, devoid of unnecessary drama, and crafted with great sophistication.

1896 first performance of Antonín Dvorák's String Quartet No. 13 Op 106, in Prague, by the Bohemian String Quartet; the good spirits of the work almost certainly reflect the composer’s happiness at being home after his long stay in the United States.

1921 first performance of Leos Janácek's rhapsody for orchestra Taras Bulba in Brno; based on a novel by Nikolai Gogol.

1928 Einojuhani Rautavaara – Finnish composer (died July 27, 2016); one of the most notable Finnish composers after Jean Sibelius.
