Here's Where to Find Concert Date Calendars for Classical Violinists

January 28, 2020, 5:07 PM · Do you want to know when your favorite violinists will be performing live, in a concert near you? Then bookmark this page!


In an effort to make sure that readers can see their favorite violinists perform live, I have assembled this alphabetical list of more than 50 violin soloists, with links to their upcoming live performance schedules. Find the violinist you wish to see, and then click on the link to go directly to his or her concert schedule. I was inspired to create this list by longtime reader Don Hurd, who was disappointed to learn that he had missed a performance by Ray Chen in his area. "Can you publish a schedule of violinist concerts?" he asked. Though we don't have the resources to maintain a comprehensive and up-to-date listing of all soloists playing everywhere, here is a way to help you connect. If you find that your favorite violinist (or YOU) are missing from this list or that a listing needs updating, please e-mail me with the name and link so that I can add or revise it.

January 29, 2020 at 05:17 PM · Question:

How accurate is Bachtrack as an aggregator of performances? As a lazy millenial I find myself using it frequently.

January 29, 2020 at 06:37 PM · Great ideas, I'm adding them in as you write! (If your comment disappears it means the names have been added!) Keep them coming! :)

January 29, 2020 at 08:22 PM · Thanks. It was a nice idea.

January 29, 2020 at 11:22 PM · Thanks Laurie. Bomsori's great but can you add Roman Kim?

January 30, 2020 at 03:13 AM · Thank you Laurie!!! I just got AWESOME seats to see Augustin Hadelich on Febuary 27th in Orange County! He is THE violinist I've been wanting to see & I did not even know he was in town. What an extraordinary birthday present thanks to YOU!!! : )

January 30, 2020 at 03:53 AM · It would be cool if we could get these people to contribute to a common Google Calendar or such.

January 30, 2020 at 01:33 PM · Thanks, Laurie, for putting this together! (And thanks for adding my two favorites!)

January 30, 2020 at 04:35 PM · the violist who I would love to know concerts of most is tabea Zimmerman

January 30, 2020 at 07:28 PM · Skyko, that makes my day, and I know you will really enjoy that!

I'm continuing to post people's requests; keep in mind, the artist must have some kind of concert calendar on the web, in order to be listed.

Mark, a violist list is in the works, we'll get her in there!

January 31, 2020 at 02:17 PM · NIGEL KENNEDY!

February 2, 2020 at 01:09 AM · If you don't mind, I would love to see Chamber Music concerts with renowned string quartets, piano trios or quintets! Love your work Laurie!!
