June 2018: 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.

June 2018 : essential commemorations

2018 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In June 2018, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Jaroslav Novotný (100th anniversary, Death), Isabelle Andréani (0th anniversary, Death), Crawford Gates (0th anniversary, Death), Arrigo Boito (100th anniversary, Death), Bonaldo Giaiotti (0th anniversary, Death)... and many more.

What's next? Every month, dozens of anniversaries are good reasons to discover a work, to rediscover a musician. Next month? July 2018... In a year? June 2019...
