I'm not looking so far ahead yet. I've got to get through next week first:

24.04 at the BASF Feierabendhaus in Ludwigshafen:

Sallinen Shadows
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Svendsen Symphony 2

27.04 in Mainz:

Sallinen Kammermusik
Prokofiev Violin Concerto 2
Atterberg Symphony 3

Both concerts feature Lisa Batiashvili violin, Ari Rasilainen conducting the Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz.

Choo Choo:
Nothing booked yet for 07-08 - but still have a couple of piano recitals upcoming in June:

6th June Wigmore Hall (London):  Sokolov plays Schubert & Scriabin
- very much looking forward to this.

12 June Barbican (ditto):  Pollini plays Chopin & Liszt.
- will try to take the opportunity to nag him (again) about the non-appearance of the rest of his Beethoven cycle.

Actually I just realised, I do have tickets for Sokolov again in London in May 2008 (no idea what he'll be playing.)

MishaK:
May 15

Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Bernard Haitink, conductor
Robert Chen, violin

Beethoven -   Coriolan Overture
Lutoslawski -   Chain 2
Bruckner -   Symphony No. 7

 ;D
