古典也玩酷

前几天推荐了个流行,结果有火星人不远万里来到地球问:“你也听流行啊”。。。
汗,我听流行的历史可比古典长。典型的音乐杂食动物,从古典到爵士,从流行到金属。只要有质量的音乐都听,当然我不否认现在听古典稍微多一点点。懒人,古典的东西经过了时间的沉淀,剩下的大都是精品,不用我费劲去粗取精,而且还能顺便装个高雅,忽忽人
现在回到blog正题,记录生活。。My current life is simple, music and sports are among my favorite themes to share….
 
Dec 1 Handel’s Messiah 7:30 pm Esplanade Concert Hall
This is one of the concerts I highly recommended to friends. A definitely masterpiece for God and for music. A great work to tune everyone in a festival mood. The tickets were sold out long time before the concert. Many of the audience were Catholic,
Christian or Choral fans rather than classical lovers. Generally SSO and the chorus done their fine jobs. Most of the times SSO done great job for smaller scale works. For larger scale works somehow they need to be "in form". Among the soloists, bass was the best, alto a bit weak. Rating 7.5
 
Dec 3 潘伟伯"玩酷"校园演唱会 5:00pm NTU 李光前大讲堂
好久以来,一直想听场流行音乐会以弥补我从来没进过李光前大讲堂的遗憾。这次如愿还得多谢师弟帮忙排票。潘伟伯的歌之前只听过有限的几首,还都没记住,所以提前下mp3预习了下新专辑。
既然是奔李光前大讲堂去的,所以先写写大讲堂声学效果:
因为不是音乐厅而是讲堂,所以本来也没对效果有期望。因South spine建筑外观所限,讲堂呈扇形结构,基本是最差的结构之一。墙面大多数为漫反射面,早期反射面较少。作为流行演唱会,还需要使用扩音系统。而讲堂所用音箱完全针对语音而非音乐设计,从挂顶的安排也可见一二,低频重放十分差。再加上讲堂的本身声学特性,导致声音干冷至极。
潘伟伯还是个蛮认真努力的艺人,从小立志当明星,在国外受到良好教育,又在Channel V主持过几年节目。这样一来,至少和听众观众交流沟通方面比很多音乐人要强,继续努力应该不错。这次是Yes933音乐台和NTU CAC联合主办,加反场曲一共唱了5首歌,期间穿插活动,总体来说不错。除了个别Fans,大部分NTU的同学不算疯狂。人不痴狂枉年少,只是不知当时疯狂的fans 50年后靠在摇椅上时可还能记起当时的歌谣?My rating 6 (-1)
 
Dec 14 Pedals & Pipes: Magic of Christmas  7.30 pm Esplanade Concert Hall
Finally another organ concert from Pedals & Pipes series. This time Dr. Lim, the dean of AGO singapore chapter, collabrated with harpist Katryna Tan and The Celebration Chorus conducted by Tom Anderson to bring another sold out performence in the holiday season. First half of the concert was organ recital works. The repertoire covered from baroque to modern. After intermission, the chorus, harp and brass joined the performence. And the repertoire adapted to more comtemporary works, some are arranged from popular Xmas songs. However the arrangement for harp a little bit weird, most of the time it’s actually masked  by brass or organ. My rating 7 (-1 student tickets were sold out before my booking…)
