1786 Friedrich Kuhlau – German-born Danish composer (d.1832); immortalized in Danish cultural history through his music for Elves' Hill, the first true work of Danish National Romanticism.

1935 Arvo Pärt – Estonian composer (83 years old); since the late 1970s, has worked in a minimalist style using his self-invented compositional technique, tintinnabuli; his music also takes inspiration from Gregorian chant; often associated with the New Simplicity movement.
