    I’m going to explore Bach’s masterpieces on Oct 18 under the renowned conductor Masaaki Suzuki. I’m so excited about that ! One of his masterpieces i’m going to hear named” Back Sinfonia from BWV 42″as we all know, Bach was a formidable intellectual and technical composer, but his music is also uplifting and spiritual, melodic, and rhythmically irresistible. I can picture the image of him playing the piano will really connect the emotion of hope and life. I look forward to this concert with my whole heart!

    I am attending the concert
    “Beethoven Encounters: Opus 18 String Quarters Part 1″
    on October 3, 2015 at 14:30
    at Lincoln Center
    10 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY

    I am looking forward to hearing Beethoven Quarters (Opus 18: nos 6, 3 and 2). After doing some research about creation of these masterpieces, I learn that Beethoven had to work very hard on composing it, since a hundred other works were already projected by Mozart and Haydn prior to that. Beethoven introduces his own of structural complication. The first, the use of small motives that bind material together. The second, a very great expansion of the materials even by comparison with Haydn’s last quarter. And the third, a new importance given to the coda which will take on monumental proportions in his maturity.

    I am looking forward in going to this concert. This is the first classic music concert that i will go to. I normally don’t listen to much classic music so interesting to hear some music that i never heard before. I’m expecting the Bach compose would be relaxing and enjoyable. Looking forward to having a great time with my group.
