July 2021: the main classical music anniversaries to celebrate

Every month, composers and musicians to remember! Classical music and opera have brought out tens of thousands of artists, are performed in thousands of venues and their composers have written scores in great numbers throughout 10 centuries of history. From January 1 to December 31, there are therefore many opportunities to remember a composer or discover an artist, to explore a genre or to expand a work' s knowledge.

July 2021 : essential commemorations

2021 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In July 2021, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Teresina Brambilla (100th anniversary, Death), Tibor Varga (100th anniversary, Birth), Stanisław Wisłocki (100th anniversary, Birth), Maro Ajemian (100th anniversary, Birth), Ginette Doyen (100th anniversary, Birth)... and many more.

What's next? Every month, dozens of anniversaries are good reasons to discover a work, to rediscover a musician. Next month? August 2021... In a year? July 2022...
