    Yesterday I was lucky enough to get tickets for the upcoming season at Operaen in Oslo (it was apparently mayhem at the opera house box office, I ordered online and I had to spend several hours just hitting the refresh button) - Schubert recital with Christian Gerhaher in November this year, and Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia/Sir Antonio Pappano in February 2013. I'm ecstatic.

    Joshua Bell will be playing the Brahms Violin Concerto in D major Op 77 with the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra on 29 and 30 August 2012. I have tickets for 29 August 2012.

    The Bridgewater hall, in Manchester, has just released it's new brochure.
    I will be booking for Mark Elder with the Halle performing Brahms piano concerto no 2 and Sibelius Symphony no 2, in September.
    If the funds will stretch I'll try for Rossini, Mozart and Tchaikovsky, also with the Halle, in November

    There are great programs for upcoming baroque & ancient music festivals, which were recently announced :

    - Arques-la-Bataille (August) : http://www.academie-bach.fr/
    ... with Le Poème Harmonique, Hélène Schmitt and her string quartet, Benjamin Alard...

    - Utrecht (August-September) : http://www.oudemuziek.nl/
    ... with La Petite Bande, Maasaki Suzuki, Leon Berben, Manfredo Kraemer, Capriccio Stravagante...

    - Paris (November-December) : http://www.parisbaroque.fr/
    ... with The Academy of Ancient Music, Skip Sempé, Hopkinson Smith, La Fenice, Cantus Cölln, Stéphanie d'Oustrac, Elizabeth Wallfisch, flawless program...

    Also, Venice has its baroque festival too, now, the "Monteverdi Vivaldi Festival", created by the French Olivier Lexa with the support of American novelist Donna Leon. The program is great : http://www.vcbm.it/fr/page/festival : Les Arts Florissants, Gabriel Garrido, Roberta Invernizzi, Jean Tubéry... (but no Andrea Marcon...)
    Just a little awkward to see these concerts happening on a 3-month time span, you can't really go there to listen to the whole thing or even a few concerts...

    Going to this concert Friday (tomorrow).

    To call it "multi-media" art only scratches the surface. Imagine a work that combines stunning visual art by Katherine Mann, add to it original choreography by Rodney Veal, live music by violinist Shaw Pong Liu, topped with 3-D sensor technology from the University of Dayton-led IDCAST. The result? An artistic work/performance unlike anything you have ever experienced. It all takes place this Friday and Saturday at the installation/performance of "2, 3, 4."

    I was invited to be one of the vocalists but I had to decline because of a prior commitment tonight (the night of the dress rehearsal). I promised to be an attentive and appreciative audience member instead.

    The coolest!
    Just scored tickets for Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra in Chicago in December:

    Chávez Sinfonía india
    Orbón Tres versiones sinfónicas
    Strauss An Alpine Symphony

    I saw them last time they were in town and they just about blew the roof off of Orchestra Hall.

    I am going to Gil Sullivan's concert at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam on the 1st of December, the program is so inspiring....Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Cochran and Schumann, great masterpieces by the finest interpreter of Mozart in the world! I am very much looking forward to listening to the variations by Brahms and five mazurkas by one of Australia's most interesting and individual composers Julian Cochran whose compositions are noticeably influenced by folk music of Eastern Europe.

    Rondo in A minor, K.511 - Mozart
    Beethoven's Sonata Quasi Una Fantasia in E Flat, Op.27 No.1
    Brahms' Variations (After String Sextet op. 18)
    5 Mazurkas by Julian Cochran
    Faschingsschwank aus Wien, Op.26 - Schumann
