This Day in Music History: On this day in 1786, composer/critic Carl Maria von Weber was born in Eutin, near Lubeck (Germany). Also on this day in 1873, the 22nd New York Regiment Band, formed by bandleader Patrick Sarsfield Gilmore, had their first concert. And on this day in 1889, pianist/composer Teresa Carreņo performed with the Berlin Philharmonic.
