A classical music bucket list for 2010

January 9, 2010 | 12:00 pm

Chopin2010 The dominant theme in the 2010 musical performance landscape is the Frederic Chopin bicentennial. More than 2,000 worldwide events will honor the beloved Polish composer and his elegiac piano scores. Chopin festivals abound seemingly everywhere: London, Rome, Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, New York, Miami, Tucson — well, you get the landscape.

Look further and there’s a lot of supreme stuff to go out and experience in the coming year. Locally, of course, the main event is Los Angeles Opera’s “Ring Cycle” in May and June. And the Los Angeles Philharmonic heads out this spring for an eight-city national tour — highlighted by stops in Chicago, Philadelphia and New York — to showcase the orchestra elsewhere for the first time under music director Gustavo Dudamel.

For those eager to travel the musical landscape elsewhere, click here for an article by Christopher Smith in Arts & Books, a bucket list, a go-and-do of highlights in the U.S. and around the world.
