The program is so full the list that follows is almost like a Thanksgiving dinner described by the cranberries, but here goes:
The opener :Japanese taiko drummers

In classical music, two performances by the Arditti Quartet (USA), seven by the Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder playing all the Beethoven sonatas

I'll stop here although I have probably skipped the event (possibly from Mexico) that will propel you to the box office (taquilla) tomorrow when tickets for individual events go on sale.
