Note: This is a pot-pourri of concert news sent me, and I welcome any news of concerts or broadcasts, or reviews/reports of concerts that have occurred, etc.  This won't be at all a complete schedule but a listing of concerts that interest those who read or contribute to this area.
Thanks to those who responded in the guestbook that they do find use this schedule useful.
      Please feel free to add or correct information at any time.  Thanks!

    Here's a page of both Windows and Macintosh keyboard-shortcut keys.

Upcoming concerts or events   (Last updated, February 23, 2010)
(REFRESH or RELOAD this page for latest.)


Thanks to the amazing Björn Östlund, Paul Rah, Quinten, and Rupert, who are the Main Compilers of the concert info.  8/15/09 - Quinten has kindly given me the text schedule he's kept so that I can do the website version more quickly -- am currently adding his items up through Sept 5.  More will be added Sunday night.

Don't miss Björn's beautiful videos site.
For another listings page, see Hippo's web page.


NEW CONCERT PAGE IS HERE!

Go to Paul Rah's new MARTHA ARGERICH - The Concerts Blog

for a timely schedule of upcoming concerts and any needed status updates.


     The last events posted here are listings sent by Quinten for 2010, included
and updated at the new Martha Argerich concerts webpage .  Thanks!

There are old 2010 listings at the bottom of 2009 also that I haven't checked but, from what I remember, at least one of them was cancelled.   Go to the new Concerts page for the latest information.  

This page will no longer be updated.

    To let Paul know of concert events not covered yet, write Paul at paulrah1983 (at) yahoo (dot) co (dot) nz, or PM ('Personal Message') him through his Argerich Concerts blog.

    Those who have written alerts about Martha Argerich's upcoming events are still encouraged to continue to write about new concerts or cancelled ones at this website's guestbook as well, as it will help people searching for info but who don't know where to go, and the more places with this information visible early, the better for people using Google for information.

     No link-checks were done for Quinten's 2010 listing.
    The new page will take care of that.   Thanks to Paul Rah for rescuing the Events/Calendar page.
