Re: Sergei Taneyev

The good folks at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra have asked us to correct the link which Marianne posted right at the end of her long post. I cannot do that (Marianne, you might?) But in the meantime please note that you can find them at http://cso.org. Their event calendar (which is what the origin...

Re: Is there any cure from Rachmaninomania?

I can't stop searching for his photos in the Internet... I feel like I'm kind of one of those journalists that annoyed him so much, but I just can't stop! Is there any cure? Apart from Daniel's solution (which is very good), I suggest you join the Rachmaninoff Society, if you have not already :D . ...

Re: LPO concert, 12 November

Was I the only one of the Forum contributors at today's concert?... Well, for my money Jurowski is a talent to watch. The first half of the concert I did not much care for - because of the music not the playing (Debussy's 'Jeux' really is not my cup of tea, ditto Stravinsky's Violin Concerto). In th...

Events in other countries

Would be great, but it's up to members to organise events.

Nothing that I am aware of outside the UK this year, but this could change if volunteers make themselves known!

I though I'd start a thread for people to post information about concerts and broadcasts (including their own reviews), which may be of interest to everyone else. So here goes. After two years of very slim SVR pickings, the forthcoming PROMS at the Royal Albert Hall in London are scheduled to delive...
