1660 Johann Kuhnau – German composer and organist (d.1722); J. S. Bach's predecessor as cantor at St. Thomas Church in Leipzig.

1815 Robert Volkmann – German composer (d.1883); worked in virtual obscurity until 1852, when his Piano Trio in B-flat minor caught the ears of Franz Liszt and Hans von Bülow, who played it several times all over Europe;  Volkmann and Brahms became close friends starting in 1864.

1885 Carlos Salzedo – French harpist, pianist, composer and conductor (d.1961); one of history's greatest harpists but was as highly regarded as a pianist and conductor by his colleagues as he was by harpists.

1892 first complete performance of Dvorák's Symphony No. 4 in Prague, conducted by the composer nearly 20 years after he first composed it.

1900 first performance of Amy Beach's Piano Concerto in c-Sharp, by the Boston Symphony with the composer as soloist.

1921 Andrew Imbrie – American composer and teacher (d.2007); his senior thesis at Princeton was a string quartet, recorded by the Juilliard Quartet.

1929 André Previn – German-born American pianist, conductor, composer (died February 28, 2019, at 89); one of the world's most versatile musicians; winner of four Academy Awards and ten Grammies.

1929 Edison Denisov – Russian composer (d.1996); his engineer father named him after Thomas Edison; he was blacklisted in 1979 as one of the 'Khrennikov Seven' at the Sixth Congress of the Union of Soviet Composers for unapproved participation in some festivals of Soviet music in the West.

1951 Pascal Rogé – French pianist (69 years old); in 2011 he and his wife Ami premiered the Concerto for 2 Pianos by the Australian composer Matthew Hindson, commissioned to celebrate their recent wedding.

1953 Patrick Doyle – Scottish film composer (67years old);  longtime collaborator of actor-director Kenneth Branagh, composing for films such as Henry V (1989), Sense and Sensibility (1995), Hamlet (1996), Gosford Park (2001) and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005); nominated for two Academy Awards and two Golden Globes.
