I've been on a big classical music kick lately, mostly listening to Dvorak's New World Symphony.  May be time to mix it up a bit.  I noticed that there's a series of free concerts going on at the Boston Conservatory for the next several days. 

To mark the 200th birthday of Franz Liszt (born October 22, 1811), Boston Conservatory students, faculty and visiting artists present seven retrospective concerts honoring the phenomenal composer and keyboard titan. All performances take place in Seully Hall at 8 The Fenway.

General admission tickets to the March 8 Piano Masters Concert by André Laplante is are $15, $10 for students and seniors.  All other Lizst Festival performances are free.
