Talk about a total 360 degree spin music wise.

Thursday night, the incomperable Dick Dale. Friday night, The Columbus Symphony Orchestra. A friend of ours goes with two of her friends. She had their tickets, they were out of town and could not use them, She invited my wife and I, they were free. We decided to go.

While I have an appreciation for Classical music, I certainly do not listen to it as much as I do rock and roll. And when I do, I favor the Baroque period mostly. I'm not a big orchestra person.

Anyway, there were two pieces played last night. Beethoven's Concerto No. 5 in E flat for piano and Orchestra, Opus 73, and after an intermission, Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 in E minor Op 27.

We all agreed that Rachmaninoff's piece was OK, but a bit overlong. Not to our tastes.

Beethoven however was a different story. We loved it! It was very cool listening to the interplay between the violins, violas, and cellos. And the pianist Horacio Gutierrrez was outstanding. At one point, the concert was held up for about 10 minutes as he was playing so forcefully that he actually broke a piano string! How rock and roll is that?

The crowd loved it and he really played to the crowd by waving it in the air and smiling a "can you believe this ?" grin. A piano tuner ran out with a spool, fixed it, and tuned it on the spot, getting some well deserved applause on his way out.

As I said, not my usual live music, but very cool for just a night none the less.

I know what you mean about the 360 degrees. I was at a rap show/afterparty two weeks ago, saw a choir/orchestra thing last week, and I'm seeing an opera tonight.

I have found that most people who are *really* into music can respect and appreciate pretty much any musical form, even if it is not to their own taste and liking.

I've always been a bit confused by the "my music is great but yours sucks" contigent. I think they may be missing the point without realizing it.

I agree, as folks should be able to enjoy all kinds of music. There was a Great Performances PBS show that featured the Berlin Philharmonic doing a concert in Palermo, Italy, with Israeli violinist Gil Shaham last year. They performed Beethoven's "Overture to Egmont, Op. 84" and Brahms "Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 77" as well as some Dvorák and Verdi, and the Teatro Massimo opera house in Palermo is beautiful. If they play it again, and they do on occasion, be sure and check it out.

Nice to get outside and listen to different things. I have a minor in music history w a focus on opera, but doesn't mean I don't LOVE a good Bros Jam!! People always find it hard to believe I love opera, but if it's music, it's all good, right?

Not that Gregg was the first guy to ever say that, but I think it's kinda disappointing.

On the other hand I remember an interview from maybe two years ago where Gregg said Stacey got some Matchbox 20 for him and he thought it was okay.

Marley, if Droogie's suggestion is daunting due to Rambler's being based in Florida, here's an approximation you can find less than 3 hours south of home:

Ah yes, Central Illinois, the heart of the the Southern Rock movement. Opening for Renegade this week will be the Tundra's only all-eskimo Blues Band.

I had quite a varying music week as well....

James Brown last Sunday, Grisman with Old School Freight Train on Wednesday and David Bromberg with a stellat cast of Fiddlers last night....

James Brown is somehow getting better over the years, at 72 Years Old now I think it was the best showing yet!! I have seen him maybe 15 times.

DTB, how was Grisman and Old School??

By the way, it was david Bromberg who produced the landmark John hartford album Steam Powered Aereo Plane, which featured John with Norman Blake, Tut Taylor, and Vassar Clements. Do you remember any of the names of the fiddlers with Bromberg the other night??

I was also a music minor, and spent ten years playing brass instruments before I packed them in. I sure wish I remembered more of that music theory I once knew, as well. I told a coworker the other day (with Wagner in mind) that Opera can be like the "heavy metal" of orchestral/art music.

There are great artists in any genre. It's whatever floats your boat.

"Wagner has great moments, but terrible quarter hours"- Mark Twain
Actually, I also like opera- but you have to admit, Wagner was the original king on long shows! The Ring of the Nibelung is about 14 hours in several sections.

DerekFromCincinnati,

Grisman was OK at best. Nothing like seeing him with his regular group. OSFT is good, but not engaging enough. The mandolin player and Banjo player are fairly amazing.


The Bromberg show exceeded my expectations.

I am not a huge Fiddle guy, but the talent on that stage was insane!

Mark O'Connor, Natalie MacMaster, Jay Ungar and Molly Mason as well as the 3 guys from Bromberg quintet, Butch Amiot, Jeff Wisor & Mitch Corbin.

I would definately see Natalie MacMaster with her own band, even Dave was impressed, which we know is saying alot.

I think you guys mean 180 degree turn. 360 degrees would bring you back to "where it all began".

Love classical music. Brings me great joy and peace.

I don't understand folk who have the superior attitude that their music is better, or someone else's style is 'rubbish' - music has to be experimental and, as an art form, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Someone out there has to like rap otherwise it would have died a long time ago and it seems to appeal to youth of all race.
