1861 Charles Martin Loeffler – German-born American composer and violinist (d.1935); was a friend of Eugène Ysaÿe and John Singer Sargent (who painted his portrait); also knew Gabriel Fauré and Ferruccio Busoni (both of whom dedicated works to him), and later, George Gershwin.

1862 Walter Damrosch – German-born American composer and conductor (d.1950); best remembered today as long-time director of the New York Symphony Orchestra and for conducting the world premiere performances of George Gershwin's Piano Concerto in F (1925), and An American in Paris (1928).

1958 first performance of Sir William Walton's Partita for Orchestra commissioned by the Cleveland Orchestra for its 40th anniversary; described in the Grove Dictionary as "an impressively concentrated score with a high-spirited finale [with] steely counterpoint and orchestral virtuosity."
