1787 Mozart finishes his String Quintet No. 3 in C K 515 in Vienna; this work inspired Franz Schubert to write his own quintet in the same key, though Schubert's scoring involves two cellos rather than two violas.

1892 Germaine Tailleferre – French composer (d.1983); the only female member of the group of composers known as Les Six.

1936 first performance of Alban Berg's Violin Concerto in Barcelona at the Festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music, by the Pablo Casals Orchestra conducted by Hermann Scherchen with violinist Louis Krasner who had commissioned it; inspiration for the work was the death by polio of 18-year-old Manon Gropius, the daughter of Alma Mahler (once Gustav Mahler's wife) and architect Walter Gropius; dedicated "To the memory of an angel”.

1936 first performance of Meredith WIllson’s Symphony No. 1 in f, ‘San Francisco’; the composer conducted the premiere by the San Francisco Symphony.

1947 Murray Perahia – American pianist and conductor (74 years old); quote: "Music represents an ideal world where all dissonances resolve, where all modulations — that are journeys — return home, and where surprise and stability coexist."

1947 Yan-Pascal Tortelier – French conductor and violinist (74 years old); son of cellist Paul Tortelier; since 2016, principal conductor of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra
