Review of a Piano Concerto

The opening allegro of ‘Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K. 491’ started out softly but menacingly. The orchestra then suddenly jumps into the main theme, incorporating a series of sharp and stabbing chromatic jumps. The theme is then repeated but played at a louder and more powerful level. Following the orchestral exposition, the piano enters unaccompanied with new melodic notes in a slower tempo. The piano voices its contribution in prominent accents; searching, inquiring, then answered by the...

Reflections on Attended Concert

On October 9th, 2019, I attended the ODU Brass Choir concert titled ‘Song to the Moon’. The ensemble was rather small, consisting of 11 members mastering trumpets, trombones, bass trombones, tubas and euphoniums. Making up in quality what they lacked in quantity, the size of the ensemble did not diminish their enthusiasm or volume as they played loudly and clearly. They performed six pieces, some of which were divided into more than one movement, all of which were played nearly...

Review of Professor Kenneth Hamilton's Concert

When it comes to Professor Kenneth Hamilton, who is his own right has an established reputation as a concert pianist, I came to his concert with the expectation of a mesmerizing listening experience. This themed and ambitious program, consisting of a homage to Liszt, came across well as favorites of the performer. Hamilton made this clear from the outset. The Steinway in the concert hall was also exploited to its full effect, with the colorful pedaling and rhythmic polish shining...

Review of Philharmonic Orchestra's Concert

The concert was held on 13 October at the Victoria Concert Hall and it is the second instalment of the Sibelius Complete Cycle, the first instalment was performed back in 2008. The concert started off with Sibelius’s ‘Symphony No.4 in A minor, Op.63’, which was composed in 1911. When the performance ended, there was a ‘puzzled silence’, the audience and I were hesitant to clap as we were unsure if the piece has ended. The symphony is known to be...

Review of the Concert 'Transcendence'

The Bach Collegium San Diego presented this concert this past February 22, 2019 at the All Souls’ Episcopal Church in Point Loma. Titled ‘Transcendence’, it was a celebration of the human voice, which is considered the most perfect musical instrument. Thus, all the six masterpieces featured that night were all performed a cappella. Five composers were also put on the spotlight in this concert: Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), Johannes Brahms (1833-1897), Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), Anton Bruckner (1824-1896), and Frank Martin...

Review of Concert

The concert of choice is Mozart’s ‘Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K.550’ that was written just for a small orchestra like the one conducted in this concert. It is retrieved from YouTube. Leonard Bernstein conducts it while the Boston orchestra performs. Mozart wrote it in 1788 summer, and it’s one of the two main symphonies with minor keys that he wrote. The aspect can be noted from the performance of the orchestra. The minor keys can be noted right...
