(Maybe make it this one?)

How about a thread where we mention important concerts that are coming up, as far in advance as we can?

I for one would find it very useful. Like, I often wonder if people like Argerich or Sokolov or Lisitsa or Grosvenor or Beatrice Rana or (pardon me) grin Lang Lang or, I don't know, Franz Liszt are going to be appearing somewhere, and so occasionally I google some of them to see, but nobody can google everybody all the time, and so sometimes when we do find out, it's too late to do anything about it......

Well, a Chopin concert started 4 mins ago on Medici TV. Is that the sort of thing you are looking for?

And how's this for an unusual concert, also in Zankel.

https://www.carnegiehall.org/Calendar/2019/02/05/Leon-Fleisher-and-Friends-0730PM

Leon Fleischer's 90th birthday celebration. He'll do some solo stuff and some 4 hand stuff with some former students, including Jonathan Biss, Yefim Bronfman, Katherine Jacobson, and a 'surprise guest'.

Jon: Thanks for both of those!
Exactly the kinds of things I'm wanting to know about.

And even if they weren't, someone would! smile

It breaks my heart to see such wonderful music scheduled but on a weeknight . There is no way I take off work three days to attend sick

Actually would be cool to maintain a group calander and load dates from several selected sites. Can this be hosted on this site somehow? I would be happy to help. We could put together a list of sites of interest. I’ve always felt it was a problem not knowing who was performing where and when (even in rock pop and jazz). Too much work?

Can we plug our own upcoming concerts, or should that be a different thread?

Edit: Better yet - I could be even more obnoxious and put it in my signature! ha

IMO:

It depends.

For example:

Yours, yes.
Mine, no. ha

Well, I'm doing one on Nov. 4 that will be live-streamed. First half is Schnittke's "Suite in the Old Style" with my violinist roommate, followed by Cherubini Horn Sonata No. 2 in F Major, and the second half is the "Horn" Trio Op. 40 by Brahms. It's a fundraiser/benefit concert, check out more info here (I think one can view this page even without a Facebook account):

Thank you!!


Let's be sure to introduce ourselves. I'm a middle aged white guy with glasses who will be sitting with a middle aged black guy with glasses in the front row, just left of center. That should be sufficient information for you to pick me out of the crowd. smile

I got ticket for Martha Argerich in Berlin on Feb 26th playing Prokofiev 3. Daniel Barenboim is conducting. The big question is whether she'll show up.

Sokolov is playing in the Bozar in Brussels in March. I saw him there in April and he was fantastic. It's the perfect venue.

Mitsuko Uchida is playing Mozart Concertos there on January 31st.

......and yes, she's another one that I would always be interested to know about, and I think many other people are also.

Leads me to a thought - maybe a new topic - who would you travel to see? To compile a list of upcoming events, compiling a list of touring pianists might be a good place to start.
