This is my second post. I am very happy because this year of 2013 is very special for the music and the world of Opera.
2013 is the celebration of the bicentenary of the birth of two of the greatest composers of the Opera, Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner.
We also commemorate 200 years of the anniversary of the premiere of one of the greatest symphonies of all times, Beethoven’s 7th symphony.
Not to mention, 2013 marks the centenary of the birth of British composer Benjamin Britten and we are also celebrating the 100 anniversary of the 1913 premiere of Igor Stravinski’s “Le Sacre du printemps”, “The Rite of Spring”.
This is a fantastic year of commemorating beautiful music from many different composers!
Bye for now Jacqueline
