November 2021: 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 2021 : essential commemorations

2021 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In November 2021, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Zoé Laurier (100th anniversary, Death), Eduard Aschenbrenner (100th anniversary, Death), Augusta Öhrström-Renard (100th anniversary, Death), Jacqueline Brumaire (100th anniversary, Birth), Jerome Hines (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? December 2021... In a year? November 2022...
