1689 Joseph Bodin de Boismortier – French composer (d.1755); one of the first composers to have no patrons: he obtained a royal license for engraving music in 1724, and made a living by publishing his music for sale to the public.

1806 first performance of Beethoven's Violin Concerto in the Theater an der Wien in Vienna; the work did not find its way into the basic repertoire until 1844 (well after Beethoven's death) when it was played by the then 12-year-old violinist Joseph Joachim with the London Philharmonic conducted by Felix Mendelssohn.

1893 premiere of Engelbert Humperdinck’s children’s opera Hansel and Gretel at the Court Theater of Weimar, conducted by a promising 29-year old composer by the name of Richard Strauss, and quickly became a Christmastime tradition.

1894 first performance of Claude Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun inspired by Stephane Mallarmé’s poem L’apres midi d’un faun.                

1982 Han-Na Chang – South Korean-American cellist and conductor (35 years old); since 2007 has concentrated on conducting, and in 2013 was appointed Music Director of the Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra, a post from which she resigned in September 2014; currently Principal Guest Conductor of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra.
