1841 Giovanni Sgambati – Italian composer, conductor and pianist (d.1914); as a conductor, a champion of German music which at the time was little-known in Italy.

1883 Sir George Dyson – English composer (d.1964); the Oxford Companion to Music describes his compositions as "skillful, sometimes deeply felt, but never forward-looking in idiom".

1883 Riccardo Zandonai – Italian opera composer (d.1944); fame rests largely on his opera Francesca da Rimini (1914).

1923 György Ligeti – Hungarian-Austrian composer (d.2006); his music is best known to the public for its use in the films of Stanley Kubrick.

1938 premiere of Hindemith's opera Mathis der Mahler (Matthias [Grünewald] the Painter) in Zurich; compared to the popular Symphony 'Mathis der Maler', the large-scale opera itself is only occasionally staged.

1947 first performance of Bohuslav Martinu’s Symphony No. 5; the score was dedicated to the Czech Philharmonic, and this is the only one of Martinu’s symphonies premiered by a Czech orchestra: Rafael Kubelik conducted the Czech Philharmonic at the Prague Spring Festival.
