1883 Sir George Dyson – English composer (d.1964); the Oxford Companion to Music describes his compositions as "skillful, sometimes deeply felt, but never forward-looking in idiom".

1883 Riccardo Zandonai – Italian opera composer (d.1944); fame rests largely on his opera Francesca da Rimini (1914).

1923 György Ligeti – Hungarian-Austrian composer (d.2006); his music is best known to the public for its use in the films of Stanley Kubrick.
