1872 Frederick Stock – German-born American conductor and composer (d.1942); Music Director of the Chicago Symphony, 1905-1942; his 37-year tenure in Chicago was surpassed in the US only by Eugene Ormandy's 44-year directorship with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

1889 first performance of Richard Strauss's Don Juan by the Orchestra of the Weimar Opera with the composer conducting; the piece put the 24-year-old composer on the map and the extreme virtuosity of nearly every part has made the piece a staple of orchestral auditions for most instruments.

1890 first performance of Johannes Brahms's String Quintet No. 2 in Vienna by the Rosé Quintet; known as the 'Prater' (the public park in Vienna); at the first rehearsal, a friend told Brahms the first movement reminded him of “Brahms strolling in the Prater” and the composer replied, “You've hit it. Among the pretty girls!”

1898 premiere of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's oratorio Hiawatha's Wedding Feast at the Royal College of Music in London, commissioned by England's Three Choirs Festival; the recommendation for the commission came from Sir Edward Elgar.

1906 premiere of Ethel Smyth's opera The Wreckers (under its German title Strandrecht) in Leipzig; Sir Thomas Beecham conducted the British premiere in 1909; the American premiere waited until 2007 in a concert performance by the American Symphony.

1922 The British Broadcasting Company begins daily radio transmissions; the BBC broadcast its first orchestral concert on December 23, 1922.
