Concert reviews: Rossini, 9 November 2019

 

From Ian

Thank you all for your hard work towards last night’s concert. I was extremely pleased with the concert. Past members of the choir who were in the audience commented how good the choir sounded. One particularly pleasing comment was how clear the diction was!! It was such a fun evening (from my view-point anyway) with such a good performance as a result.

 

Very well done. We need to keep up this standard for the next concerts!!

From Tim Grant-Jones

Thank you for the opportunity to play this role in the Petite Messe for which I lived several months of slight trepidation anticipating a near vertical learning curve on the day. It was the most strange performing experience I can remember being totally reliant on assurance from other people that the balance was ok. The unsubtle sound of the period harmonium seemed to help people who were unsure of Rossini’s intention with his treatment of the mass to be swayed into believing this was the first oratorio buffa, if there is such a thing.


I had a good feeling about the concert. It happens occasionally, so well done especially to the choir who were at home all the way  through so much so that they were able to perfect some finer details right up until the last run through.  
People that I knew who came to the concert were highly delighted and said it was fantastic. Thanks to David for ensuring we had the ideal piano (and harmonium!) for the concert.
 

From Peter Barnes (Vice chair of the sadly former MKCO)
Many thanks for another great concert on Saturday evening - the Rossini was a real treat in every respect.
