音乐表达 Voices of Music

久不联系的网友丝管今年初给我发了一批好听的歌剧片段,顺便推荐了一个湾区本地的乐团 Voices of Music. 叮嘱我有机会一定要去看现场。她们在油管上有频道。当时一查22-23这一季已经结束。现在23-24开幕了。昨晚带妈妈去听了她们的“伊丽莎白一世看过的演出”(Entertainment for Elizabeth). 女高音昨晚的裙子比视频里面要漂亮。宛如盛开的野花田野,超级美丽。后悔当时没有掏出手机拍一张。

演出在一个我们平时没有注意到的教堂里(St. Mark’s Lutheran Church),音响一流。花玻璃非常漂亮。

乐团的两位领导特别和蔼腼腆一个吹笛子一个弹鲁特琴。我和妈妈都很喜欢当晚演出里面笛子的音色和曲调。乐团宗旨就是试图恢复伊丽莎白一世时代的音色和曲目。整场音乐会好像在回放狼厅。看演出目录和解读才知道绿袖子这曲子居然谣传是亨利八世给安+巴林写的!乐团每一组曲目都会在Palo Alto, Berkeley和旧金山巡回一圈。推荐大家去看!

来去都是坐公车,回家时已经十点了,来的公车里居然坐满了,不光是出来逛夜店的年轻人,还有不少穿着整齐的中老年人,可能是参加圣诞派对回来?这个城市越来越像纽约了。真好啊。
