November 19

1739 premiere of Jean-Philippe Rameau's opera Dardanus by the Académie de musique at its theater in the Palais-Royal in Paris; critics were not impressed: the incoherent plot called for the appearance of a sea monster, violating the French operatic convention requiring a clear purpose for encounters with supernatural beings; revised in 1744 and again in 1760.

1859 Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov – Russian composer, conductor and teacher (d.1935); music is rarely heard today except for the Caucasian Sketches, which include the Procession of the Sardar.

1875 first performance of Peter Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 3 'Polish' under the baton of Nikolai Rubinstein at the first concert of the Russian Music Society's season in Moscow; unique among Tchaikovsky’s symphonies: the only one in a major key and the only one in five movements.

1923 first performances of Ernö Dohnányi's Festive Overture, Zoltán Kódaly's Psalmus Hungaricus and Béla Bartók's Dance Suite at a gala concert in Budapest for the 50th Anniversary of the union of the cities Buda and Pest (on opposite sides of the Danube).

1934 David Lloyd-Jones – English conductor (86 years old); also an editor and translator, especially of Russian operas
