Events[edit]

  • Robert Schumann writes two symphonies: Symphony No. 1 in Bb, opus 38 (also called "Spring"symphony), and Symphony No. 4 in D-minor, opus 120. (The D-minor symphony was edited extensively by Schumann in 1851, and thus was given a much later opus number and subsequently referred to as no.4, although it is actually no.2.)
  • Tenor Domenico Donzelli retires from the stage.
  • Nikolay Afanas'yev resigns as concertmaster of the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra in order to conduct the serf orchestra of a wealthy landowner at Vïksa, near St Petersburg.
