I am going to hear the UC Symphony this Saturday evening. It's time to study the Lutosławski Symphony No.4 on youtube...

10.26.2014 Zellerbach Hall, Berkeley, CA
Schubert: The Last Piano Sonatas, D.958-960 / Richard Goode, pianist

累透了的星期日,我讓自己合上眼皮,捲曲身子,半夢半醒的聽音樂會。思緒在太多的事務中跳來跳去,久久不能集中,可能這迷離的狀態才最適合聽舒伯特?老人家Goode的舒伯特輕盈無比,天使般的旋律在層層和聲中,毫不費勁地穿透出來。三首奏鳴曲的最後樂章翩翩起舞,在不強求對比和深度的彈奏裡,散發著出世的愉悅。

Supporting UC Berkeley Symphony.

 It must have been 2 or 3 years since I last attended a concert by the UC Symphony. These kids play with passion, and their smiling and nodding and glancing one another is so much fun to watch. The eruption of applause after Tchaikovsky 6's third movement was both "illiterate" and appropriate.

Loneliness -
Insisting on making magnificent music even without companions.

San Francisco Symphony 與 Michael Tilson Thomas 演奏馬勒第三,探究大自然和人的關係,生機盎然,彷如置身歐洲之田園。
