ANNIVERSARIES FOR 2009

2009 is a great year for anniversaries in all our specialist areas. Music and performing arts anniversaries include composers Handel, Haydn, Purcell, Martinu, Mendelssohn and singer Billie Holiday plus the Ballets Russes centenary – a great opportunity to use beautiful illustrations. Author anniversaries include Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – creator of the opium smoking detective Sherlock Holmes, Charles Darwin and Samuel Johnson.

Historical personalities’ anniversaries include Louis Braille and Abraham Lincoln.

December anniversaries lean strongly towards the music world:
Olivier Messiaen, French composer (10th December 1908 – 100th birth anniversary),
Elliot Carter, American composer (11th December 1908 – 100th birth anniversary),
Giacomo Puccini, Italian composer (22nd December 1858 – 150th birth anniversary),
John Milton, English poet (9th December 2008 – 400th birth anniversary).
