1822 Joachim Raff – German-Swiss composer, teacher and pianist (d.1882); very prolific, and by the end of his life was one of the best known German composers, though his work is largely forgotten today.

1888 Louis Durey – French composer (d.1979); the least remembered of 'Les Six'; during World War 2, worked with the French Resistance; came to embrace hardline communism and his uncompromising political attitudes hindered his career.

1906 first performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 6, in Essen, with the composer conducting; sometimes called the 'Tragic' Symphony; Alban Berg called it "the only sixth, despite the Pastoral."
