1697 death of Nicolaus Bruhns – Danish-German composer and organist (age c. 32); despite being one of the most prominent organists and composers of his generation, few of his works exist today.

1806 first performance of Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3, as part of the second, revised version of the opera Fidelio at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna.

1874 first performance of Antonín Dvorák's Symphony No. 3 in Prague, with the Prague Philharmonic conducted by Bedrich Smetana; the only three-movement symphony Dvorák wrote – there is no Scherzo.

1879 premiere of Tchaikovsky's opera Eugene Onegin in Moscow, conducted by Nikolai Rubinstein; the libretto            follows very closely certain passages in Alexander Pushkin's novel-in-verse, retaining much of his poetry.

1882 first performance of Alexander Glazunov’s Symphony No. 1 in St. Petersburg; the symphony was a resounding success, but the audience was astonished to see a teenage boy come to the stage to take his bows in his school uniform; the composer was all of 16 years old; as for his aptitude in learning counterpoint, form, harmony and orchestration, his teacher Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov said that it seemed Glazunov had not progressed so much from day to day as from hour to hour.

1902 Sir William Walton – English composer (d.1983); especially known for his orchestral music; one of England’s most important composers between the time of Vaughan Williams and Britten; best-known works include Façade, the cantata Belshazzar's Feast, the Viola Concerto, the First Symphony, and scores for the Olivier Shakespeare films.

1911 first performance of George Whitefield Chadwick’s Suite symphonique by the Philadelphia Orchestra with the composer conducting.

1936 Sir Richard Rodney Bennett – English composer (d.2012); renowned for his film scores.
