    On the February 17th, I'm attending a concert with only works by Satie being performed. Rather exited about it. And hopefully, in the end of March, I'm going to Trondheim to see Mahler's 8th with the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra (among others). And there also are some other concerts that I can't quite remember right now.

    I've actually just bought tickets to a concert in April with the Oslo Philharmonic (conducted by Saraste) performing Sibelius' Fourth Symphony and Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto (with Radu Lupu as the soloist), which I'm very much looking forward to.

    Mozart's Reqiuem. Sometime in March. I don't know the name of the choir, but my one of my friend's godfathers is in it and apparently they are one of Edinburgh's best choirs.

    The fact that they're not really famous doesn't bother me, anything for Mozart's Reqiuem

    I'd love to see Turandot. Don't forget to write a review here.


    In April I'm going to see Simon Keenlyside & Natalie Dessay in a concert performance of Pelléas et Mélisande. Then it's London again to see Simon again for Mahler's Rückert-Lieder.

    On 18th February - Beethoven's 5th Piano Concerto, Mahler's 1st

    I'll have to check the schedule for more, but I'm so there at these two

    Martha Argerich with the LA Phil playing Beethoven 1
    Van Zweden conducting Beethoven 5 and the Prokofiev Sinfonia Concertante!

    I'm thinking about taking a train (for the first time) up to my homeland of Minnesota to see Osmo Vanska conduct Mahler 6... I'm a student, though, so I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Lots of great concerts & recitals coming up here in Sydney. Ones I'm really looking forward to are Beethoven's Archduke trio, Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire, Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 132 & Schubert's Winterreise. All by Australian performers probably not known by members here, but the Goldner String Quartet has done some recordings on Naxos. I like to go to chamber concerts particularly & I usually post what I've been to on the latest concerts thread...

    I think I will be going to a cool concert in September. The University of Oslo will celebrate it's 200th anniversary, there's one really posh concert for invited guests only but there will also be what was described to me as "classical concert marathon" in the university library.

    As I may have mentioned before, I sometimes attend a free 30 minute recital on Fridays, it goes under the description of Cultural Lunch and it's a great thing. I suppose this concert marathon will be something like a much extended version.

    Looks interesting.

    We have similar free concerts in Birmingham at The Barber Institute.

    Hey guys!

    Those are some great concerts. I'm personally looking forward to seeing Edo conducting Beethoven's 7th.

    If you're looking for info about upcoming concerts, 2mbs gives you a rundown of whats coming up on a weekly basis: http://www.2mbs.com/

    I also found this cute Sydney classical music guide http://www.debussycat.com.

    Anything else? I was using live guide before. That's pretty good too.
