In today’s news: Spotify shares jump to record high, Rosemary Johnson and other leading figures from the classical world are recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, Schott Music and MPI Music Production International are to publish a new Academic Edition of the Complete Works of Tchaikovsky, the 1ooth anniversary of librettist Arrigo Boito, and Spotify algorithms decide what is the best music for you.
Shares in the company scaled a new high on Friday afternoon, jumping as much as 4 per cent to a record high of $172.76. The reason for the sudden jump was not immediately clear, but it came as Recode reported that Spotify has started licensing songs directly from artists and their managers.

The Sixteen has announced the new cohort of Genesis Sixteen singers, and the appointment of Royal Academy of Music student Harry Bradford as conducting scholar for 2018-19.
