I am traveling to Mansfield, CT, UConn, to hear Frederic Rzewski performing his own "The People United Will Never Be Defeated" on Novenber 3rd.

I am traveling from Europe.

Also exactly the kind of thing I'm thrilled to know about, and wouldn't have.
We'll be looking into going.

If you are anywhere near Seattle, the President’s Piano series at Meany Hall, on the University of Washington campus, is impressive (intimate 1250 seat hall, beautiful acoustics). Last week we heard Marc-André Hamelin in recital. Coming up: Jeremy Denk in January, Filippo Gorini (Feb.), Emanuel Ax (April), and in May, Yekwon Sunwoo, Cliburn 2017 winner. Also: Stephen Hough with the Taiwan Philharmonic in November.


About to say goodbye to Mister Upright, and wondering what nickname the new Estonia L168 will inspire.

Very few people travel more than a small distance to see a concert. People who live in a given place know which venues have classical concerts and should check the online listings for those places. It takes just a few minutes to bookmark all the concert listings for all the venues.

Any listings on a PW thread are just duplicates of those listings, and they will only be a minuscule percentage of those listings that are easily available online. If someone is interested enough to travel far to see a famous pianist, just check their website for their concert schedule.

You would make a fine critic. grin

(I think many might feel a thread like this is a very useful additional resource.
I certainly do.)

Exactly! We could create one, link it here, and have people submit based on location or based on artist.

First attempt:

Piano Calendar

Trying to see if there is a way to click a link and get it to import automatically. No luck so far.

There should be a clickable link enabling add to calendar but most sites don't seem to have one. Eventbrite does but it is a limited site.

You live in NYC so you have many options the remainder of us do not have. I have traveled from western Florida to NYC Follow specific pianists? I get to hear so few, that my list to follow would go around s NYC block. Please don’t assume the usefulness to others unless you live in a town of 30,000

You traveled from Florida to NYC for a single concert??

I can't think of any pianists I would travel more than a couple of hours to hear even if I lived in a remote area. I can listen and watch them, sometimes in live performances, on YouTube. It's hard for me to imagine anyone would have a list of more than 10 pianists they would travel a distance to hear.

If whoever said they are traveling from Europe to hear Rzewski play his People United variations is traveling that far ONLY for that concert, I have to say I find that bizarre. I think he plays it on Youtube.

I think travelling to concerts is great. I have only a short flight to every major city in Western Europe. I go over in the morning, have a relaxed day, and then come home the next day. The pianists are probably doing the same thing a couple of times per week. grin

Many people I know travel for all sorts of recreational reasons. I have friends who travel to see Dave Matthews or other jam bands, friends who do marathons or ultras in various cities and even other countries, some who travel to see presidential libraries, some who travel to see baseball games at various parks even if the teams come here occasionally, etc.

I traveled to NY to see Beegie Adair; made a weekend of it and spent the weekend with my brother, who lives in NJ. I bought tickets to see Lisitsa in Amelia Island, a 6 hr drive, but then she booked another venue right in my town so I cancelled the other one. I also once bought tickets to see Umphrey's McGee in Atlanta but then they came to Miami so I cancelled that one too. My brother once went to Chicago for a special wine tasting after work, came back the same night in and out of Newark.

We've got one life to live, may as well make it count! Traveling by plane is not much different than a long bus ride was years ago. Plus, I have friends and family all over the country, so we make a weekend out of it.

Of course you wouldn’t travel— You don’t need to. But if you lived someplace without concerts, I bet you would. Think outside of your own little world. Some of us are hungry for great performances. Can I do it often? Of course not

I've travel from Washington DC to NYC regularly for the opera since I'm a member of the Met. The 2018-19 season has just started and they will have three performances of the Ring Cycle. That will not only bring me up to NYC, it will keep me there for a few days. this time, I've talked with a friend in Utah about going with me, so he would be traveling even further for the performing arts. I've even traveled from DC to NY State (mid-state) for an extremely rarely performed opera. I don't see that as a big deal. I guess it depends on what it means to you, eh? I've even travelled to another country for a concert before. Can't remember where I was, but it wasn't Austria, and I travelled to Salzburg for an opera.

Given that these days, performing arts tickets can be up to $300 for orchestra/parterre (Met for example), a little travel seems almost like an incidental expense/bother.

I live in New York, and I've traveled to Boston a few times specifically for concerts.

For certain performers I might well travel a much longer distance. For example, to see Argerich I'd consider going halfway across the country. For others, like Chopin or LIszt, I'd go to Mars. ha

I saw her three or four times right in NYC.
