Music Appreciation Concert Report
The University of Texas at El Paso Music Department presented a piano recital featuring Oscar Macchioni on Saturday, December 7. Dr. Macchioni born in Argentina is a very prestigious pianist which has performed all around the world. The program featured the keyboard instrument known as the piano. The music pieces played were Adagio from the Oboe Concerto in D minor, Faschingsschwank aus Wien op.26, Sonata in C-Sharp minor, and four different movements from the Preludes Book I. All the music played were from a variety of composers. The program was different from others, because it had only one instrument. However, it did not stop from being a fantastic performance.
The music piece that was interesting to me was Faschingsswank aus Wien op.26 also known as Viennese Carnival Pranks which its five movements known as Allegro, Romanze, Scherzino, Intermezzo, and Finale. The texture of this music piece was exchanged from monophonic to polyphonic with gave a very enjoyable rhythm. In the harmonic aspect of the music, the movements had consonance with some dissonances. The pace of the music was very exciting changing from adagio to allegro, and the loudness stay in the volumes of piano for obvious reasons. The style in this piece of music gives a feeling of being in a carnival as the title suggests, but also gives a sense of romanticism of being heartbroken. Then, the movement changes to a style of anger and revenge depicting a different sense in the music. In my opinion I really enjoyed this piece of music. It make me feel all the emotions a person have when is in love, and then betrayed causing emotions of frustration and sadness. As a whole, the piano recital was very interesting giving a different style of music played by the majestic piano…...

...Arch Creek as a Concert Venue JWU student life is something that all of us as students look forward to. It is important for students to be motivated by the events that are created for them. In this case we are planning a concert venue for the students to enjoy, something from all of us to all of us. A concert requires all the people to be happy and enjoying the music which they are listening to. To be able to do this we have to take into consideration the location of the stage, the space for the people to have enough space to jump and enjoy themselves, and a good sound system which will not reproduce any eco for the attendees. Arch Creek is the soccer field of the school and we have decided to to the concert venue in that space. Something to take into consideration is that the perimeter of arch creek is not entirely squared. The soccer field fits in there but towards the east Arch Creek takes more of a circular figure. The idea is to have the stage on the back (east) close to the shops that are behind. This way the stage will be there, but the sound will be projected towards the parking lot of JWU, which is perfect since the attendees will be looking towards the stage in the east side. The concert venue will be held during the afternoon which makes the sun coming down on the west side. This means that the attendees will receive sun in their backs but will be able to see the concert perfectly. For the bands playing they will have space behind the stage for them to prepare......

Classical Music Concert Review

...Erin Jordan Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra September 12, 2011 Berlin Philharmonie The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestral performed Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 while touring in Europe and was conducted by Manfred Honeck. The program is Mahler: Symphony No. 5 in c-sharp minor with encores by Josef Strauss and Richard Strauss. I obtained the program from Watching and listening to a concert on a small computer screen with poor sound quality isn’t ideal but the feelings and emotions were still present. Prior to watching the concert I researched the composer Gustav Mahler. One important piece of musicians is their life history. I learned Gustav had a near death experience prior to composing Symphony No. 5. I believe his struggle with life and death was told in his work. Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 begins with a trumpet solo intro and is quickly joined by the bass drums portraying a sense of fear and suspense. The trumpet intro is by far the most memorable feature. The musical theme is a sense of darkness to light, sadness and despair to joyful and hopeful. Many parts also sound as if there is sorrow turned into violence. It is as if Mahler is fighting for something or someone. Quite possibly his own life or even the love of a female. There are frequent changes in tempo and dynamic with crescendo and decrescendo. The cadence of the orchestra allows for more suspense and the need to see what comes next in the story. Many......

Review on Bojan-Z Music Concert February 27 2013

...On February 27, I had a chance to attend a jazz concert by French jazz pianist Bojan Z, which was taken place at the Institute for Cultural exchange with France (IDECAF) in Ho Chi Minh City. The concert was an opportunity for Bojan to feature some of his best work selected from the “Soul shelter” and “Transpacifi” albums, namely Natural Ground, Buzz, No 9, Pick It Up and Empty Shell. The performance also featured some new, incomplete works which are still being developed. Many of them were influenced by traditional Balkan music, as Bojan said. The band consisted of Josh Roseman on trombone, Ruth Goller on bass, Sebastian Rochford on drums and Bojan Z himself on the piano. Bojan Z began his concert by banging out a percussion rhythm on the grand piano’s lid and top, which was strange but really interesting. This acted as a intro point for a modern and funky, danceable jazz tune along with bitonal structures and bitonal points. At multiples times, he reached inside the piano and touched out bass notes directly on the strings like a bassist usually does on his own instrument. That was really amusing for the audience. Some of Bojan Z's tune were played through a couple of effects boxes (one of which as a digital delay) and occasionally on a xenophone, an electronic keyboard of his own design. His jazz technique is redoubtable, to be sure, and his solos scorch the air, along with his fingers never waver. For a few tracks, the melodies usually hides inside continuous ranges of......

Music Concert Experience

...Music Class Paper By Tenzin Wangyal Faculty: Professor David Claman On October 24th, 2013 at 7:30 pm, I went to a fundraising concert for the Garrison Institute at The Town Hall (123 West 43rd Street, New York City) called In the Spirit: Music From the World’s Great Traditions. While standing in the queue at the box office, I felt a little out of place and discouraged, since most of the people there were senior citizens who were very well and formally dressed; I was the only one wearing orange pants, a light blue shirt, a black jacket and white shoes. The old couple standing next to me was discussing music using dense music vocabulary. The good news is that I knew some of the vocabulary they were using, thanks to you, Professor; the bad news was that I didn’t know what to expect from this concert. Because it was a charity concert with world music, I bought a ticket and went in. The music hall was antique, with many pictures of classical singers on the wall. Inside the hall was large chandeliers. The seating arrangement was poor, with very little leg space. Everyone in the hall was so serious—I was telling them in my thoughts, “Smile, for God’s sake. It’s a concert, after all.” The presenter came out and talked a bit about Garrison Institute, before calling out the first performer: the Pomerium Vocal Ensemble. I was very excited since I liked [Sylvie] so much, which is a cappella. This a cappella ensemble consisted of fourteen people: Director Alexander Blanchly,......

...Kim, Hyoungjoo MU106-M03 November 27 2013 Concert Report for My Music Class I attended the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra’s “Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto “on Sunday, November 3, 2013 at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark. The hall was much more magnificent than I expected. In addition, the deep hum of a thousand voices work up the excitement of me, I’m not a big fan of classical music concerts though at the entrance. At the beginning of the concert, the orchestra who is armed with tuxedos and full dress was seated on the stage. The concertmaster came out to tune the orchestra, and then the conductor made his entrance. They performed music from Hungary, Germany and Russia. Zoltán Kodály’s Dances of Galanta is the Hungarian work and Tchaikovsky’s beloved Piano Concerto No. 1 is the Russian piece. In addition, they explained these make significant use of folk music, adapting them in individual and compelling ways. By contrast, Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4, which we hear before intermission, is more in keeping with the Viennese symphonic tradition. The combination of an abstract Germanic formal model with more geographically focused musical content gives this concert its profile. First, Zoltán Kodály’s Dances of Galanta opens with a cello melody with strong dotted rhythm. After that by the strings, they played the same theme by French horn, and then passed around the orchestra. The next, played clarinet soloist it was brief cadenza......

The Concert

...“Thank you for calling the Department of Business and Professional Regulations, this is Brandi, how may I help you.” I was so happy to finally be off after an agonizing ten hour shift. I had the music blasting and in between songs I hear it, a concert promoter’s voice blaring through my speakers, voice as loud as a morning alarm, “Usher, live in concert July 31st at American Airlines Arena. Thank God I was stopped at a red light; if not I might have run off the road. I reached for my cell phone, completely in shock, dialed my best friend’s number. As soon as she picked up the phone she yelled, “I know”, just two words, we both screamed! I told my friend that I was driving home and I would call her back in twenty minutes. Before I could get in the door my phone rang, it was her. We talked for hours about the concert and everything that needed to be done before the date of the show. Starring at my bedroom calendar I noticed I had only two months to prepare. I booked my ticket online, made an appointment with the best hairdresser in town, and scouted many outfits in my head, it was on! As the weeks went by I was in an Usher state of mind. Usher was everywhere, on my screen saver at work, in my iPod, my cd player, everywhere. Those two months seemed like forever but finally the concert date was among us. It was twenty four hours away and I was definitely ready. I looked good, my hair and nails were a masterpiece and my outfit was laid out on my bed like a school girls first......

Jazz Concert

...Bhavin Patel Professor Barr Wednesday 3:00 11/22/10 Concert Report I attended the Fall Jazz Band concert at Mt. Sac in the Sophia B. Clarke Theater. The show was on Friday November 19th, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. The concert first featured the Latin Jazz Ensemble of Mt. Sac. Followed by the Latin Jazz Ensemble was the Mt. Sac Jazz Ensemble 1. The concert was directed by Jeff Ellwood and Tim Curle. The first piece played by the Mt. Sac Jazz Ensemble was called “Intersecting Lines” which was composed by Les Hooper. After warming the audience up with that piece, they went on to play “True North” by Mike Dana. Next the Ensemble played “Let’s Face the Music and Dance,” by Irving Berlin. The last piece the Latin Jazz Ensemble played was “Too High,” composed by Stevie Wonder, which I thought was pretty interesting. After a short intermission the Mt.Sac Jazz Ensemble came out and started off with “Hot and Spicey,” by Jason Goldman. The second song they played was called “Count Me In” by Billy Byers. Next they played “D-Bop” played in D-Flat I believe, and it was said to be a difficult piece for the ensemble, but they still mastered it. After “D-Bop” the piece called “Truth” was played which featured a solo piece from a talented saxophone player. Then they played “And Another Thing,” which is composed by Tom Garling. The last piece played was called “Yes or No,” and this was composed by Wayne Shortner. Jazz music started towards the beginning of the 20th century. ......

Reviewing a Concert

...On January 26th 2014 I attended a concert that took place at Doylestown Presbyterian Church in Doylestown. Preforming that day was a group called the Impulse Handbell Ensemble, a group of grade school children from Monmouth county New Jersey. The group, directed by Ryan Guth uses hand bell’s to produce music and instrumentals to popular songs. Ryan Guth has been teaching middle school band for seven years now and owns his own performing arts studio named voice works. On the day I attended the concert, there were 10 compositions preformed with an intermission in between. Some major compositions that were preformed included the hit songs “call me maybe” and “counting stars”. I was quite surprised when I initially saw the program and the songs listed, because it was hard for me to comprehend how a group with bells could produce songs that we are so accustomed to hearing on the radio. Once the concert got started, I enjoyed seeing how all the bells complimented one another by the different sounds they produced. The concert itself was quite entertaining to me. I was really impressed by how 14-year-old kids could play together and be so professional. Another thing I observed was how some of the members of the ensemble played multiple instruments, which was really impressive. From the start the members of the ensemble tried to get the audience involved in the performance. The director after the first couple of songs introduced the students individually. It was a nice way of......

Classical Music Concert Report

...Sina Valizadeh Concert Report 2 03/19/14 Classical Music Concert Report The concert took place in Balboa Park at Spreckels Organ. I was there for about an hour and they played 7 songs. #1: Jared Jacobsen: Toccata from Symphony No.5, Opus 42 from Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937) From the start of the song tempo was presto. It has a 1,2 rhythm and it is very simple overall until it goes toward the end of a song and you hear more different melodies. it had an amazing finishing. during the middle of the song you could've hear the middle parts with louder and harder melodies. #2: Jared Jacobsen: Toccata in D Minor, S. 565 from Jonathan Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) This piece almost took 10 minutes and by far i can say is one of the best classical songs I've ever heard. it seems like a happy song. a lot of high pitch sounds and melodies were used in this song. tempo was combination of presto and moderato and it seems like its a dramatic song. #3: Sam Rudenberg: Prelude in G minor, BWV 556 from Jonathan Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Very relaxing song, decent speed and largo tempo. i can say it is esspresione and it gets loud at the end of a song. #4: Sam Rudenberg: Finale from Janet Correll (b. 1942) Its a romantic era, it has a story line and a song like melody, usually it narrates a story about some one or a specific event that happened in the history. kind of slow tempo and a 1.2 rhythm. i heard a little bit of syncopation as well. #5: Jared Jacobsen: oh Danny......

...Sammy Stengart Concert I attended the Pascack hills concert in Montvale, New Jersey on 12/3/2014. This concert included a band and a choir. There were about 10 different pieces played by the band. Three of the pieces were also sung by the choir along with the band. The ensemble pieces are the ones that stood out the most to me. They were Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, September, and Lux Nova. This stood out to me as a unique combination of music. There many instruments involved including trumpets, flutes, oboes, clarinets, French horns, drums, trombones, tubas, and a keyboard. September was a piece that involved many different instruments. It was a piece for which the whole band really needed to work hard together to get it correct. The instrument that stood out to me the most and seemed to play the melody of this piece was the trumpet. This was a piece that the crowd responded extremely loudly to and enjoyed tremendously. The band actually played this piece almost to perfection except it was obvious that the percussion section was a little bit out of sync. Overall, I enjoyed this performance tremendously. I felt as if the band worked hours and days in order to ensure that they played these pieces at an optimal level. The crowd responded well to the performance and gave the band and choir members a very loud round of applause. It was impressive to say the least how these two groups were able to be in such sync with each other throughout the whole performance.......

...Sheng Lu Assignment: Concert review from Faculty Artist Series Presents (on date 9/8/15) Instructor: Professor Mark Gibson September 22, 2015 That night, I went to Robert J. Werner Recital Hall listened the concert performed by Musician Steve Allee and professor of percussion Rusty Burge. The music they played is relate to Jazz, although I don’t know much about the music, I can feel the player they love music and devote their lives in it. For what I can do I think just enjoy and appreciate them bring their music to us. Also, I was impressed by these two instruments piano and vibraphone they are wonderfully connected to each other, and there is one moment I think piano and vibraphone they are designed for each other. It reminds me my teenage year in middle school, I play trumpet in school orchestra so I can understood them how much they like what they performed it becomes their friend already. But one thing I am curious about is that I was first time saw the vibraphone and I don’t know it can make the sound so special, it feels like I am in another world with that sound only. Such powerful and pure. At the same time, I realized that if I want to learn well on these two instrument how difficult it is, I have to memorize every beat and practice as many times as I can in order to prevent making mistakes. Especially, vibraphone every sing mistake will ruin the whole song due to its specialty. I like the part they played “Waltz for Tomorrow”, the tune of the song is......

...Music Concert Review I watched a concert named ‘Swire Symphony Under the Stars’ which is performed by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. I have never watched a concert not holding in concert hall before, this concert was held at outdoor in the Happy Valley Racecourse Recreation Ground. People just sat wherever they wanted, enjoying the performance while eating sandwiches happily. There were large screens projecting the stage for the audience at the back, everyone were excited and looking forward to the concert. The atmosphere of the venue was good. The orchestra played 5 songs totally, which were Dvorak carnival overture, Chopin Piano Concerto No.2, Mussorgsky Khovanshchina Prelude to Act One, Prokofiev Five selections from Romeo and Juliet, and Tchaikovsky 1812 overture. Among these five pieces I like the 1812 overture most, its historical background is Napoleon's invasion of Russia. Beginning with the hymn "God Preserve Thy People" played by cellos and violas, the strings played softly and sadly, created a mysterious environment. The piece moves through a mixture of pastoral and militant themes showed that the increasing distress of the Russian people at the hands of the invading French. The atmosphere started to be tense when woodwind and brass instruments joined the strings, it seemed that the war was declared, the Battle of Borodino. The oboe, clarinets and flutes had alternate interactions with double basses, with a lot of......
