London guides will have more details on venues and websites such as TimeOut will have lists with events which can be searched by date. And consider reading Norman Lebrecht's book Music in London.

📖 "So is music an asylum. It takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence and whereto. All the great interrogatories, like questioning angels, float in on its waves of sound."

📖 "The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, 'Is there a meaning to music?' My answer to that would be, 'Yes.' And 'Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?' My answer to that would be, 'No.'"
Aaron Copland in What to Listen for in Music (1939)

📖 "When you hear music, after it's over, it's gone in the air. You can never capture it again."
Eric Dolphy
