[Music] Memories of past love... 'Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini'
(Denver = Wongeol Jeong) Russian composer Rachmaninoff, what kind of life did he live...?
What kind of life did he live to make our hearts flutter and tingle like this?
On the local time of the 28th, the Colorado Symphony, under the direction of conductor Carolyn Kuan, held a performance of Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.
With her shoulder-length black hair flowing, the stylish and talented female conductor, Kuan, began to move the musicians.
The passionate piano performance by pianist Simon Trpceski from Macedonia blended with the Colorado Symphony's playing.
Familiar melodies, as famous as they were, echoed in our ears. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow. Our hearts raced to the sound of the piano.
Rachmaninoff, true to the name "Rhapsody," approached the same melody with different feelings, different moods.
The march-like melody transformed into a melody reminiscent of Hungarian dances. Suddenly, the desire to dance arose. It felt as if the audience was moving in sync with Rachmaninoff's melodies.
The piece flowed like the gentle and smooth current of the sea. And... suddenly, memories of past love came to mind. It became a slightly melancholic feeling, as if one wanted to cry. It was undoubtedly the magic created by the Rachmaninoff.
In this way, the genius composer etches his name into the hearts of those who alive even after death.
This performance, which maximized the beauty of the piano, was a moment that allowed us to experience the genius of Rachmaninoff, the pianist Simon Trpceski from Macedonia, and the conductor Carolyn Kuan, as well as the sincerity of the members of the Colorado Symphony and the overwhelming emotions that come from that sincerity, surpassing the brilliance of geniuses.
