    By the premiere of the Ninth Symphony in 1824 at the Theatre am Karntnertor, Beethoven was completely deaf. At the end of the concert, the audience erupted with "unbridled enthusiasm. The entire audience was on its feet clapping, shouting, weeping, and waving handkerchiefs [...] It was one of the most poignant moments in the history of classical music: The ill and aging genius brought face to face with a celebration of music he no longer heard." --The Secret Lives of Great Composers

January 18, 1884: Dr. Price cremates his son. William Price was already known as an eccentric character -- self-styled Neo-Druid, Welsh nationalist, and advocate of free love -- but when he burned his infant son, it was too much for the local citizenry and they mobbed him. Authorities determined that the child had died of natural causes, but it took a trial to ascertain that cremation was not, as the police believed, illegal. A precedent set, the following year 10 crematoriums opened in Britain.
