    Default Where can I find out about piano recitals going on in the U.K?

    Could someone please tell me where to find about piano recitals going on in the u.k? I've no idea, and searches on google seem to throw up next to nothing. I'm particularly keen to find any concerts of the Beethoven sonatas if anybody knows of any?
    Thank you
    Tony

    In Saturday's Guardian newspaper each week is a TV and entertainment guide (The Guide) which lists musical performances, including classical music. Mine is specific to the North of England, where I live - it's regional, so you'll get London and the South East if you live there, etc. It's pretty good, lists large and small venues, local events and festivals and so on. (Other broadsheets may well do similar things.)

    If you look there, you'll get to know what venues stage what sort of performances, and you can then look online, get put on emailing lists, request programmes etc. If there are major music colleges in your area, they will often stage more adventurous repertoire.

    That's how I've done it - you build up a network over time.

    I hope that's helpful

    classical-music.com's "what's on" search engine can be a useful tool for finding recitals and concerts;

    http://www.classical-music.com/whats-on

    Concert Diary has something similar:

    http://www.concert-diary.com/

    Otherwise I think that You have to survey all of the concert givers web-sites, a long and dire work...

    Check the websites of the Wigmore Hall and St John's Smith Square, (St Martin in the Fields & St James's Piccadilly have regular lunchtime recitals)
    The Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music & Drama - all have free recitals.
    All these are in London though.
