    Tchaikovsky - Violin Concerto, Nikolaj Znaider soloist

    I'm gonna spend a few days in Berlin soon, 18-21 june to be precise. I would have loved to go to one of Simon Rattle's performances of Mahler's sixth symphony, but they are sadly sold out. I've been looking on eBay everyday now hoping some ticket will be coming up, but there has been no luck.

    My question is to you people who's been in and outside the Berliner Philharmonie at sold out events. Is there people with spare tickets selling outside the Philharmonie before the concert starts? Is there maybe more buyers then sellers at an sold out event?
    Is there any use at trying the box office?
    Does anybody have any tip how I possibly could get a ticket?

    Sorry for for my bad english.
    So, have you made it?

    We won't be going, but my fiddle teacher plays viola with La Serenissima, so I'm sure this would be a good concert to attend if you were in the Buxton Area.
    My fiddle my joy.

    Lanner Quartet will perform in the Palace of Music (Miskolc) on Wednesday. (they're members of the Budapest Festival Orchestra, it's a chamber project.) after the free concert there will be cheese scone and champagne. last time they performed there 2 years ago I drank 4 or 5 glasses of champagne instead of 1, I barely could get on the bus.
