1882 Percy Grainger – Australian-American pianist, composer and arranger (d.1961); though he became an American citizen in 1919, he considered himself an Australian composer who, he said, wrote music "in the hopes of bringing honor and fame to my native land"; played a prominent role in the revival of interest in British folk music.

1900 George Antheil – American avant-garde composer, pianist, author and inventor (d.1959); his music explored the modern sounds – musical, industrial, mechanical – of the early 20th century.

1940 first performance of Randall Thompson’s Alleluia at the opening of the Berkshire Music Center in Lenox, Mass; the composer’s most popular work.

1992 Benjamin Grosvenor – English pianist (28 years old); in April 2011, signed with Decca, the label's first British pianist for over half a century.

11:00 FROM THE TOP with Christopher O’Riley and America's finest young musicians; recorded March 4, 2016 - From Lake Jackson, Texas, this week’s From the Top features an energetic 11-year-old pianist from Texas performing the music of Mendelssohn, we’ll hear a brand new work for four cellos written by a brilliant teenage composer from Pennsylvania, and we’ll meet a very confident young trumpet player who thrives on the pressure of playing a brass instrument—he loves the challenge that, because the instrument is so loud, everyone can hear any mistake he might make. Not surprisingly, this young player makes very few.

16-year-old violinist Joshua Brown from Gurnee, Illinois, performs Polonaise No. 1 in D Major, Op. 4, for Violin and Piano by Henryk Wieniawski (1835-1880), with pianist Christopher O’Riley
