Thursday night I was invited to a free concert at Conservatoire a rayonnement regional de Paris. One of my Macau friends who invited me was playing in the concert. It's not a very long concert which lasts around one hour and a half only, so it was perfect for my tired body! The program was as follow:
- Edith Canat de Chizy (1950) Couleur d'abime
- Maurice Ravel, Concerto for left hand in D major
- Felix Mendelssohn, Symphony number 3 in A minor Op. 56
The first one is a very contemporary music which I didn't really enjoy, I've never really liked a very contemporary music. The second one was good, a piano concerto for left hand which made me want to play piano again so badly! Mendelssohn has always been one of my favorite composers. I used to play his music a lot when I was learning piano in Hong Kong. I enjoyed his symphony so much.
When my friend first invited me to go to this concert, I kind of hesitated a bit since Thursday night was my only free evening of the week. So I wanted to go home and rest instead of going to a concert. But finally I thought that I needed some music to give my busy mindset a wash, and I was right to have decided so!
