1866 premiere of Smetana's comic opera The Bartered Bride at the Provisional Theatre, Prague; Smetana's quite successful attempt to create a truly Czech operatic genre.

1932 Pauline Oliveros - American composer and accordionist (84 years old); a central figure in the development of experimental and post-war electronic art music.

1952 Zoltán Kocsis - Hungarian pianist, conductor and composer (64 years old); co-founder of the Budapest Festival Orchestra.
