September 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.

September 2018 : essential commemorations

2018 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In September 2018, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Lubomír Koželuha (100th anniversary, Birth), Roman Georgievich Maiboroda (0th anniversary, Death), Rosl Schwaiger (100th anniversary, Birth), Claudio Scimone (0th anniversary, Death), Ella Tvrdková (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? October 2018... In a year? September 2019...
