Symphony Concert: 爛漫之秋 2012東吳大學音樂學系系列音樂會 2012/10/26

shilin station --> bus to scu. meant to have arrived to maybe enjoy the sunset, but the campus is on the inner-side of the stream-hill valley (外雙溪) such that in winter the sun probably "set" at 3pm or so. it was so fun to see so many kids running around!

the concert hall was very cold and maybe 2/3 occupied. very pretty and new. it's located in the "second research building", which i'm told is roughly 4-yo). walking around in the corridors pre-concert, there were people practicing behind doors and it was great (think i recognized the don juan liszt-mozart and another ravel piece).

not being a regular concert goer meant everything sounded spectacular to me. the program was all in major keys, and while the aim was to hear the beethoven, the first two symphonies were also great! when the program started it was surprising to hear such sounds live and going fast. not having people around meant certain people can perhaps dance to the music if so desired.

listening live really educate on how to listen to the pieces. the spatial-ness of a live orchestra added various dimensions to the sounds and where they are coming from, which further inspire new ideas to receive the pieces. also live sounds are not harsh and skimpy like ear-phones, so the mozart piece was completely unadulteratedly indefensible and unobjectable and mind blowing in its gloriousness when listened live (not sure if mozart used such an orchestra but it sounded full and golden bull-ious). there's some desire to relisten to the pieces, but realization sets in that it's simply un-enjoyable on the same level on youtube -- on the up-side, the education to like these pieces have been conceived, and perhaps searching for better recording sounds would be a slight alleviation (but how do you produce that live, organic, spacious sound!!??).

so much "minute details" (which really are not when listened live) are revealed: dynamic ranges, the distinctness of the instruments, texture (which when listened without knowing the original sound could begin to sound alike, especially on historical recordings). it was gladful to hear the polyphonic layers so pronounced, and additionally acted out by cute actors and their wonderful personal displays of involvements (the winds are so cute!). the conduction flowed information not only make the orchestra worked together, but as indispensable indicators or understanding the pieces.



conducted by huang wei ming and the scu student orchestra. (somehow these events are not listed on scu's main site, you have to search through the music departement, that's the un-free part of the concert??). i'd say they're maybe 3:7 m:f ratio? are the guys all playing guitars and pianos? what happened.
