1810 Félicien David – French composer (d.1876); enthusiastically involved in the Saint-Simonian movement, whose adherents held music to be an important art, and David wrote much music for them; visit to Egypt and the Holy Land led to his greatest success, the symphonic ode Le désert of 1844.

1816 William Sterndale Bennett – English composer, pianist, conductor and music educator (d.1875); considered the most distinguished composer of the early Victorian era.

1938 Frederic Rzewski – American composer and virtuoso pianist (83 years old); Nicolas Slonimsky said of him in Baker's Biographical Dictionary of Musicians: "He is furthermore a granitically overpowering piano technician, capable of depositing huge boulders of sonoristic material across the keyboard without actually wrecking the instrument."

1952 first performance of Morton Gould’s Symphony No. 4 ‘West Point Symphony’ for band, during the West Point Military Academy Sesquicentennial Celebration, by the Academy Band with the composer conducting.

1958 American pianist Van Cliburn wins the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, the first American to do so.
