1833 Alexander Borodin – Russian composer, doctor and chemist (d.1887); best known for his symphonies, his two string quartets, In the Steppes of Central Asia and his opera Prince Igor; notable advocate of women's rights and was a founder of the School of Medicine for Women in St. Petersburg.
1881 first performance of Peter Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 2 by the New York Philharmonic conducted by Theodore Thomas, with soloist Madeleine Schiller; dedicated to Nikolai Rubinstein, who had insisted he be allowed to perform it at the premiere as a way of making up for his harsh criticism of Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto, but Rubinstein died before he could play it.
1943 first performance of William Schuman's Symphony No. 5 'Symphony for Strings' in Boston; written for the Koussevitzky Music Foundation.
1973 first performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 14 in Leningrad, dedicated to Sergei Shirinsky, cellist of the Beethoven Quartet which performed the premiere.
