Concert Report

I attended a concert that was a piano trio. The instruments were obviously a piano, a cello, and a violin. The concert was done by two adults and one student. The student played the cello. The concert was held here on Oklahoma State's campus at Willard Hall. The room it was held in was a relatively small room. It wasn't a real concert hall it was more of a small kind of parlor room. Piano trios are meant for smaller audiences, so it worked out well. There was about 30 people in the room attending the performance. The music played was from different musical areas.

The next piece played in the concert was Sotto Voce composed by Marilyn Shrude in 2012. The lady that composed this piece is actually the mother of the woman that was playing violin. I thought this was very cool and you could tell that this piece meant a lot to her. This piece is from the modern era as it was wrote in 2012. The piece itself was written to represent the landscape of Wallah Wallah, Washington. This was the place of a musical festival that she and her husband had founded. The landscape was supposed to be beautiful fields filled with golden grasses. The piece used silence and pauses a lot to help describe the peacefulness of the place being described. The tempo of the piece was very slow. The piece also used syncopations very well to help get the peacefulness across. The dynamics of this piece used a lot of crescendo and decrescendo to get across the feeling of the piece. This piece was a very dark feeling one and I didn't quite feel the beautiful landscape the performer had described. Some of the pitches used in this piece were also kind of shrilly and made me feel uncomfortable. I didn't really enjoy this piece and it was definitely my least favorite one of the performance. It was also a very sad sounding piece and I do not prefer those types of pieces.
The last piece of the performance was Piano Trio No. 1 in D minor Op. 32. This piece was composed by Anton Arensky in 1894 and is a Romantic Era piece. This piece had 4 movements in it and was in chamber music form. The first movement sounded very dramatic and had three themes....
