I attended to Faculty Recital concert on November 1, 2018 n Glendale community college. This is my First Time I attend to this type of concert. All of the performance performed by GCC music department staffs on Auditorium building’s concert included following instrument: Violin, piano, cello, flute oboe and soprano. The stage was design pretty simple .it was set up with white background, a piano which was located on the left corner and chairs and note stands in the middle of the stage for performance. The concert took around one hour and they presented pieces by deferent composers.
The first performance was called Concerto in g minor RV 107 which composed by Antonia Vividi(1675-1741) and performed by Galia Acosta on violon,Catherine Biagini on cello Bethany Pflueger on Flute an paul Sherman oboe.it included three movement: 1) Allgero,2)Largo 3)Allegro. The opening movement of Concerto started with Allegro form which was fast and lovely tempo and switched to largo which is slower sustained tempo and finally back to Allegro fast and loud movement to impress the audience.the rhythm of the music changed many times during the performance. In some parts semmed to have foul soundes combination where as the others rhat vere playd in solo instrument.
I was amazed how the four performers could play in perfect coordination without any defect. This piece is an example of baroque style. The second pice of concert was combination two pices song .the first song “Songs my mother Taught Me” From Gypsy Melodies op. 55 No.4 composed by Antonin Dvorak( 1841-1904). This piece performed Marine Ter-kazaryan with a soprano voice and and peter Green on piano. This was a Romantic syle pice of classical music Dvorak. It started with lovely melody with piano and .the second pice wa a songwhich called “Song To the Moon” from Rusalka by Antonin Dvorak. These to piece was completely different from the first performonce.
It was an opera song in classical genere. Her powerful voice got my full attention And made me stare on stage the whole time. The thirde performance, was acht stucke fur flote allein composd by Paul Hindemith( 1921-1963) performed by Bethany Pflueger on flute. It contained 8 different personalitly and each one independent from each other of solo flute in German language. They were very vary from each other. For example the first pice had leisurely and slightly moved, second one had a movement in scherzando style which it means playfull manner. The third one had very slow and free in time theme and so on. Before the pefomence stared to perform she just toldthe audince please put ur phone on silent no even a minute later a person phone stared ringing which made every ones laugh.
This was one of the unique moment of the concert. The fourth performance Oblivion which composed by Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) performed by Ovanes Arakelyan on piano and Paul Sherman on oboe. It is a tango pice and beutifull pice full of elegent notes.The song started by playing piano and oboe both together. This was my favorite pice which makes you to have feeling of sadness and happiness and the same moment an make you emotion goes up and down throughout the pice.it started with vere gentle with all the strings with quiet and slow tempo and it progress with the same tempo and and about the half way melodies change with a contrasting theme but less intanse and ended with higher ptched obei and grew stronger in the way it sounds Melody had long held notes with slowly falling figures.
Overall the melodi was a little sad but it wasfull of emotion and love. One of the composers of this concert was Antonia Vivaldi Italian composer and violinist born in 1675 in Italy and passed a way in 1741 in Vienna. Vivalidi marked on the concerto form of music in baraque style. He stablished the three movement of concerto( fast-slow-fast).

From the entire concert, the forth performance truly couth my attention. The fourth performance which perdormed by Ovanes Arakelyan on piano and Poaul Sherman on oboe. This was a sound Track of the “Mario Bellocchio” film.
This song it was full of emotion and love. Which can not be put into any words.the melody gives you kind of feeling of sadness and hormonic sophistication which make me fell relax and deep sense of stasis. Classical music is my favorite type of the music. This pice broutgh me back too my jounior period back to my country.I got emotional and started to cry.I am lucky because I attended to this concert now every they Ilisten to this song and I fell in love with this song.
