Noriko Ogawa asks Beethoven to Leave her Alone

Noriko Ogawa seems to be comfortable in the same pea pod as Claude Debussy; she displays a similar maverick streak to the French composer. In this video Nogawa makes her point by discussing the different aspects of Debussy’s Prelude No. 12, Book 2, Feux D’Artifice (Fireworks). Read more >>

In line with Piano Street’s mission to stimulate and promote live piano music performances, all pianists and advanced piano students are welcome to post announcements and invitations to their own upcoming piano recitals and piano concerto performances on this board.
While the global coverage of our member base will often make distance an issue, the 6.000+ daily unique visitor to pianostreet.com might hopefully lead to a few fellow PS-members in your audience!

 
Subject line format:

Recital date (YYYY-MM-DD): City, Country - recital title or description AND/OR name of pianist or chamber music group

Example: 2013-09-29: Rome, Italy - Beethoven Recital - Yuja Lang, piano

Since the announcements are primarily directed to other Piano Street members, it is advisable to start off with a friendly introduction/invitation and perhaps give a few personal comments on the program selection before listing the official details.

Thank you for launching this.
A couple of suggestions if I may:

-activate the calendar module in SMF and have a specific tab on the menu called Events where one can view the calendar with the events.

-instead of having it in miscellaneous, i would recommend to make the events more prominent and featured on the homepage. Another thing that could be done is to charge artists a small fee er event for the events to be featured and prominently advertised.

Yes! Instead of where you have the Blog posts, you can once in a while put sort of "Next upcoming concert" or a website, if the artist pays a fee.

Thanks for posting your suggestions. Smiley
Yes, if this takes off we might use the SMF calendar or, more likely, build a custom system and let members' upcoming recitals appear on the home page or other prominent positions of the website.

Thank you, Nils, for this great addition. I second the proposal to add a new tab to the piano forum menu, rather than "burying" Recital announcements under Miscellaneous.

And many thanks for including Chamber Music concerts!
