September 2019: 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 2019 : essential commemorations

2019 is, as every year, an opportunity to celebrate many centenarians or multi-centenarians related to classical music and opera. In September 2019, some well-known or not so famous artists, composers or musicians, are to be commemorated: Gagik Hovunts (0th anniversary, Death), Peter Schram (200th anniversary, Birth), Roger Boutry (0th anniversary, Death), Johan Kvandal (100th anniversary, Birth), Henri Lutz (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 2019... In a year? September 2020...
