Concert Review #1

I attended the concert for University of Maryland Wind Orchestra. Before the

concert began, I got the program in advance and skimmed through it in order to

understand their performance better. The theme of the concert was an exploration

of music that’s “off the beaten path.” The concert began! Each performers seemed a

little nervous but they seemed excited about playing music. The conductor first introduced

what kind of music they were going to perform and gave brief explanations about those

pieces of music. The first music they played was Suite in B-flat, Op. 4 by Richard

Strauss. The music was played by only using aerophone. The main instruments

played in this music were oboes, clarinets, and a double bass, and flutes.

The tempo of the music keeps changing. The beginning is a allegro movement.

In the middle, the tempo gets slow. It was andante which is walking speed of the

tempo. The sound of various aerophone harmonized simultaneously in a

beautiful manner. The second one was Sparrows by Joseph Schwantner.

I remembered the conductor’s saying Sparrows is his favorite piece of the

concert. So, I paid more attention to it. The voice, soprano was supported by

three instrumental groups, woodwinds, strings, and a combination of piano, harp,

and percussion. It consist of 15 haiku with separate and short movements.

I could definitely see how she tried hard to interact with audience. Her facial

expression and her body motion showed that she is really engaged in this music.

But the movements were played without any pause. The ensemble created an

astonishingly wide range of atmospheres and colors. The tone of the music was

exotic, producing a mysterious atmosphere of danger. It was very intimate

and touching! The same melody kept repeating over and over again.

The third one was Grand Pianola Music by John Adams. Winds, brass, percussion.

Two bass drums and the grand pianos are involved in it. Three female voices also

sing wordless harmony, floating above the band in triads, while imitating the crisp

staccato of the winds and brass. I could see how she tried hard to interact with

audience. Her facial expression and her body motion showed that

she is really engaged in this music. The two piano players used the

technique of imitative counterpoint. They played same melody but with one

slightly behind the other. Changing different key of the scale made the tone

of the music differently. I loved the concert!

  1. GenTink says:
    1) I attended the concert for [the] University of Maryland Wind Orchestra.
    2) REMOVE (Before the performance began). It’s redundant.
    3) I got the program in advance and skimmed through it in order to [better] understand their performance.

    Overall, it’s very choppy. Try making the sentences flow together better.
