October 22

1727 premiere of George Frideric Handel's Coronation Anthems in London at Westminster Abbey during the coronation of King George II and Queen Caroline; one of the anthems, Zadok the Priest, has been sung at every subsequent British coronation, traditionally performed during the sovereign's anointing.

1811 Franz Liszt – Hungarian composer, virtuoso pianist, conductor, teacher and member of the Third Order of St. Francis (d.1886); probably the most technically advanced pianist of his age; in the 1840s considered by some the greatest pianist of all time; was a benefactor to other composers, including Richard Wagner, Hector Berlioz, Camille Saint-Saëns, Edvard Grieg and Alexander Borodin.

1881 first concert by the Boston Symphony; at the old Boston Music Hall, with George Herschel conducting; program included Beethoven's Consecration of the House Overture, and works by Gluck, Haydn, Schubert, Bruch and Weber; current Music Director Andris Nelsons began his tenure in 2013.

1987 premiere of John Adams's opera Nixon in China at Houston Grand Opera;  composer's first opera, inspired by U.S. President Richard Nixon's visit to China in 1972; The Chairman Dances (1985) by John Adams (commissioned by the Milwaukee Symphony) is described by the composer as an "out-take" from Nixon in China.
