July 2022: 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 2022 : essential commemorations

2022 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In July 2022, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Jiří Ropek (100th anniversary, Birth), David Ward (100th anniversary, Birth), Jan Panenka (100th anniversary, Birth), Rosalina Abejo (100th anniversary, Birth), Gérard Serkoyan (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 2022... In a year? July 2023...
