November 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.

November 2018 : essential commemorations

2018 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In November 2018, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Mikhail Petrovich Krasnov (100th anniversary, Birth), Joaquín Valverde Sanjuán (100th anniversary, Death), Josep Martí i Cristià (100th anniversary, Death), Francis Lai (0th anniversary, Death), Joseph Aloys Schmittbaur (300th 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? December 2018... In a year? November 2019...
