1882 Percy Grainger – Australian-American pianist, composer and arranger (d.1961); though he became an American citizen in 1919, he considered himself an Australian composer who, he said, wrote music "in the hopes of bringing honor and fame to my native land"; played a prominent role in the revival of interest in British folk music.

1900 George Antheil – American avant-garde composer, pianist, author and inventor (d.1959); his music explored the modern sounds – musical, industrial, mechanical – of the early 20th century.

1940 first performance of Randall Thompson’s Alleluia at the opening of the Berkshire Music Center in Lenox, Mass; the composer’s most popular work.

1992 Benjamin Grosvenor – English pianist (28 years old); in April 2011, signed with Decca, the label's first British pianist for over half a century.

2006 first performance of The Composer is Dead, music by Nathaniel Stookey, text by Lemony Snicket; a 30-minute entertainment commissioned by the San Francisco Symphony, using a murder mystery as a pretext for a guided tour through the sections of the orchestra
