Bachtrack logoThe Bachtrack website has just completed uploading its global database of programs for the upcoming concert season.

Although it isn’t an exhaustive listing of every orchestral group, the site covers nearly all of the major orchestras and other ensembles around the world, making it a good “one-stop” resource for information about what’s happening on the concert calendar.

The 2014/15 concert season features five key compositions by Florent Schmitt which will be performed by four top-notch orchestras in Berlin, Buffalo, Cleveland and Metz, conducted by Lionel Bringuier, JoAnn Falletta, Marek Janowski and Jacques Mercier:
