1766 Rodolphe Kreutzer – French violinist and composer (d.1831); Beethoven dedicated to him his Violin Sonata No. 9—now known as the Kreutzer Sonata—but Kreutzer apparently never played the work in public, declaring it unplayable and incomprehensible; career as a soloist was cut short by a carriage accident in 1810; composed about 40 operas and his 40 Études ou caprices remain standard exercises for the violin.

1861 first performance of Johannes Brahms's Piano Quartet No. 1 at a private read-through in Hamburg with Clara Schumann as pianist; a year later to the day, the work had its official premiere in Vienna with members of the Hellmesberger Quartet and the composer at the piano.

1866 premiere of Ambroise Thomas' opera Mignon in Paris at the Opéra-Comique; libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré is based on Goethe's novel Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre.

1876 first performance of Peter Tchaikovsky's Marche slave in Moscow, conducted by Nikolai Rubinstein; composer referred to it as his ‘Serbo-Russian March’, since it was commissioned for a concert to benefit wounded veterans of the Serbo-Turkish War.

1888 first performance of Peter Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in St. Petersburg with the composer conducting; possibly for its spirit of ultimate victory through strife, the work was very popular during World War II; one notable performance was by the Leningrad Radio Symphony during the Siege of Leningrad on the October 20, 1941 broadcast relayed to London: as the second movement began, bombs started to fall nearby, but the orchestra continued playing until the final note.

1919 Hershy Kay – American composer, arranger, and orchestrator (d.1981); famous for orchestrations of Broadway shows, and for the ballets he arranged for George Balanchine's New York City Ballet.

1930 David Amram – American composer, conductor, multi-instrumentalist, and author (90 years old); wrote more than 100 orchestral and chamber music works and scores for Broadway theater and film, including the scores for the films Splendor in the Grass (1961) and The Manchurian Candidate (1962).
