June 2020: 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 2020 : essential commemorations

2020 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In June 2020, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Myroslav Skoryk (0th anniversary, Death), Fedora Barbieri (100th anniversary, Birth), Robert Turner (100th anniversary, Birth), Peter Roth-Ehrang (100th anniversary, Birth), Zbyněk Vostřák (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? July 2020... In a year? June 2021...
