Osim concert
2003-07-28 22:06:10 ET

In case I hadn’t mentioned before, some younger musicians of our orchestra we asked to forma part of the OSIM, which is an orchestra formed by people under 15 years old, so they had been at México City for a week and a half now doing rehearsals, then finally they had their first concert on Sunday, and we went to see them playing, so we went there only for Sunday and got back today on morning.

-Something of what I felt strange was that during the trip, on the bus when was at night and we all (or many were asleep), my violin teacher –when asleep- had her head on a pillow that was put on my right shoulder… and you know... even when you know she’s only a friend, you like her as a nice person and such, it was irresistible of smelling her hair... having her head close to me ... just reminds me of perhaps how close can I get to anyone... anyhow, in that moment I felt really depressed, depressed like thinking in lunacy stuff, dying and such... I don’t know if I shall be now more coldhearted or soften a bit with people...-

The show totally kicked as! Damn kids are very good musicians. The melodies they played are as follow:
Alberto Ginsatera – Two Dances of the Ballet “Estancia”
Sergei Profokiev – Montagues and Capulets from Romeo and Juliet
Carlos Chavez – Chacona
Bizet – Carmne Suite
Graciela Agudelo – Adventures Suites
José Pablo Moncayo – Huapango
Arturo Márquez – Danzón No. 2

I liked them all except the adventures suites one, I did dislike that one. The others were just fine, well, perhaps the Carmen Suite was just a bit faster than usual. And for example, the Montagues and Capulets is a I’ve liked a lot before, it kind of has a gloomy and dark feel when listening it, and now I heard it live, it totally rocked out. The Huapango was damn well performed, excellent piece, and the last one we were expecting to hear was the Danzón No. 2 because we’ll be playing it as well soon. If anyone interested in listing it, you may download it here (8.72 Mb), it’s a nice piece too. Very difficult, but you need to either listen very well each of the instruments or read the score sheet music to understand its great composition complex. Anyhow, the concert was great, I wish I could play like them or within people like them.

heh, I can understand how you felt when you said your violin teacher had her head on your shoulder and how you smelled her hair. It makes you wonder and think and think some more... and as you said... get depressed. There is something weird about it all.

Malk, have you ever listened to Mahavishnu Orchestra? 70s-80s fusion group. Amazing music, and some beautiful jazz violin.
