Review of Musika sa Museum Cafe – Sept.22 6pm
The event was started by a trio, a violin, viola and cello by 3 students including a high school lad from CPAC Colllege. They played “Ang Palaka” which animates the movements and chorus of frogs in the rice fields. The mastery of the presentation was superb, knowing that faster peices needed perfect timing especially with the violin’s multiple notes in every second.
I appreciate the fact that Mr Strong explained to non-musicians the difference between a violin, viola and cello.
I believe that modernity has put on the pressure to the message, whether it be an ad, a brochure or a music. And there is a certain mystery with un-sung musical peice. That abstraction stands with more respect because any meaning can be alluded into the composition. I also see that any great accompaniment especially by a master composer should carry with it a powerful lyrics and harmonics to produce a synergy. I believe the Christian message, though good, have been better if it matches the prodigy of George Frideric Handel’s music.
Overall, I loved the fact that Bacolenos have enough depth to actually offer Music Majors in Bacolod City. This just echose the opinions of international artists that the Filipino is a great Musical Artist.
