TSO on 2009/01/11: The Red Cello—紅色大提琴

Martin Fischer-Dieskau, Conductor, Alexander Baillie, Cello, & Taipei Symphony Orchestra. It is A-Mao's second time listening to live Prokofiev’s Sinfonia Concertante. The solo cellist’s performance history is incredible, and his interpretation has lots of thoughts. The first movement had several brilliant sparkles, but trill was not enough. In the second movement, the more humorous, the more excellent. The third movement, variations, was really good though the volume of some showy parts was low. The encore piece is Bouree of Bach's Cello Suite No. 4, and it was played vividly. Baillie must practice it N times, however, he made a few misses. As for TSO, frankly speaking, A-Mao is very disappointed that this orchestra accompanied the soloist perfunctorily. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 just got a passing mark because there are many imperfections in performance.
