The Fire, The Romance, The Passion

Fri, 25 Aug 06
7:30pm Esplanade Concert Hall

Lim Yau  conductor
Gordon Hunt  oboe

Repertoire/ Programme:

HANDEL – Royal Fireworks Music
R. STRAUSS – Oboe Concerto in D major
An American In Paris
RAVEL – Bolero

Composed in 1945, Strauss’ Oboe Concerto is regarded by many as one of the key works for the instrument, though sadly under-performed. Handel’s Royal Fireworks Music sounds as refreshingly vibrant today as it did when first performed in April 1749 to celebrate the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle. As much as Gershwin’s An American in Paris evokes the energy and colours of the city of romance, Ravel’s Bolero conjures up the build-up of fiery passion.


除了R. Strauss的协奏曲外,其他几个曲目我都蛮喜欢。


音乐会上又遇见了本地乐评人Samuel, 约好下周四再见,虽然有时我们的意见并不统一,呵呵
