June 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.

June 2022 : essential commemorations

2022 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In June 2022, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Raffaello de Banfield (100th anniversary, Birth), Joseph Schuster (300th anniversary, Birth), Johann Kuhnau (300th anniversary, Death), Iain Hamilton (100th anniversary, Birth), Vilém Zemánek (100th 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 2022... In a year? June 2023...
