august 24

1907 first performance of Sir Edward Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 4 in the Queen's Hall, London, conducted by the composer; the P&C March No. 1 is the most familiar, but No. 4 runs a close second; it has so noble a main tune that during World War II, Sir Alan Herbert fitted his Song of Freedom to this music and with its opening line of "All men must be free," it became an unofficial alternate British national anthem.

1910 Bernhard Heiden – German and American composer and teacher (d.2000); studied under and was heavily influenced by Paul Hindemith; students included Donald Erb.

1943 premiere of Leonard Bernstein’s song-cycle I Hate Music! at the Public Library in Lenox, Mass., with mezzo-soprano Jennie Tourel and the composer at the piano; the New York premiere of this work occurred on November 13, 1943, the day before Bernstein’s surprise conducting debut with the New York Philharmonic.

1949 Stephen Paulus – American composer (d.2014); best known for his operas and choral music; in 1973, co-founded the American Composers Forum, the largest composer service organization in the U.S. and producer of the radio feature Composers Datebook - "All music was once new."
