7 September 2019, PARIS It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our composer member Roger Boutry (1932-2019) on 7 September. Roger was an outstanding conductor, composer and professor at the Paris Conservatoire, and he was involved with us in the latest call for compositions. We will honour his memory with the programme of the forthcoming concert at Villa Médicis in Rome on 8 November 2019.

THE MUSICAL WORKS FUND& TOMORROW'S ARTISTIC HERITAGE
Every six months, the data in the Funds digital library and the catalogues is harvested by the National Library of France (BnF).
This honours the commitment made by the Fund at its inauguration at the Palazzo Farnese on 5 July 2012 in Rome, following which we received the patronage of the French Ministry of Culture:
(...) The digitisation of cultural heritage is one of the priorities of the Ministry of Culture and Communication. Your project contributes to this aim by promoting the physical and digital preservation of musical works from across the world. Moreover, the partnerships that you are establishing with libraries reflect my ministrys desire to strengthen international cultural exchanges. (...)
