A GREAT CONCERT
I thought it would be a terrible time when I had to come to join a recital to get some information for my paper that will be due on tomorrow. Actually, yesterday was the first time I participated in a concert because I hate the concert like that: just loud and noisy sounds come out from instruments without voices of singers would make me headache.
On the way going to the concert which began at 4:30 PM, I though when I get there it makes me easy to sleep the whole time of performance. But not, I should change my mind. The concert was very wonderful. It was a great night I have never had before when I went to Ferguson Hall for a recital called â€śElizabeth Karelse, pianoâ€?. To my surprised, the main person who played during the recitals is my music instructor. Firstly, she played with a young Chinese girl, Yu-Hsuan Yang, who also played piano very well. Then, she played with Ramiro Alvarez and Lucas Shogren separately with other instrument: Cello. The players lead me follow to their feeling by the tune of the music they play. I seemed to be fascinated by the music them play. They use everything I have learned from my class. Mostly, they played alternating hands with both hands, combining with a lot of technical such as allegro, allegretto, and incorporate dynamic contrast, or staccato and legato together. Some times they used stress or emphasis, and using a melody to play with each other. Moreover, they used damper pedals to produce the blurred tonal effects to obtain the mood of the following piece and using a dynamic marking to play strongly accented some part of the songs. I am sure that there were a lot and a lot of things I have not learned yet, they used in this concert. Especially my instructor made me attractively when she played parallel motion that means using both hands move in the same direction on the piano, some time louder, sometimes softer. Everything attracted me following the music. I feel that the piano transmits the impact from the playerâ€™s fingers like the fascination of the players on the key to a hammer that strikes the string. Then it conveyed to the audiences in the room.
What a really good time I had yesterday! Going there, now I have experience in learning to read music and to play the note on the piano with any finger, in any manner. The players showed me coordinate what you see on the music page with what you fell in the piano keyboard. I also experienced from learning to use all fingers in playing these notes, first with either hand, separately, eventually together. Besides of those things, I can able have the feel (a little bit ď?Š) of the keyboard when I play a certain song or organize the major and minor keys. During the concert, I wished I could play well as my teacher. Seeing her fingers along the piano made me admire. I donâ€™t suppose that I am being teaching by a very good instructor like that. It will be difficult to learn to play the piano on my own as an adult. However, people have done it before me, successfully. I can, too â€“ if I am determined, tenacious and courageous enough to embark on a difficult but exciting venture. I hope I can learn to play the piano well enough and soon enough to bring me enormous pleasure and satisfaction.
