Re: “Concert Review: Singer/Songwriter Showcase at Club at Water Street

If you conduct a concert and if you think that the concert was good that should only be the view for yourself.You should not depend on others for views as everyone opinion is different.

Re: “Concert Review: Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra "An Evening in Paris"

I just heard the concert tonight (Saturday). I do not agree with the above review, Especially regarding the performance of the Violin Concerto. I have performed this concerto many times. Quint's phrasing was odd and uncomfortable to listen to. His playing was not in the Romantic style. I regret to say that although his playing was extremely virtuosic, it was at the same time rather messy. I was so looking forward to hearing the Saint-Saens, but I was disappointed with his rendition. He had many intonation issues and his tempos were all over the place. The slow sections in the first movement were too slow and the slow movement was too fast as were the slow sections in the third movement. Also, Quint sped up and slowed down in places that were inappropriate. That is why neither the orchestra nor the conductor could follow him exactly all of the time. On the contrary, I thought that the RPO did a wonderful job with both pieces on the first half! Unfortunately, I could not stay for the second half.

Re: “Pop/Rock | Goodbyemotel

Great band. Seen them at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC back in December. Tunes are catchy and uplifting. On the level of Coldplay, U2, Radiohead but with a newer twist and direction. Captivating.

Re: “CD Review: Disney's "Frozen" Soundtrack

Matt: Those seem like pretty solid bets, I agree. Whether you like or loathe Lana Del Rey, "Young and Beautiful" was such an integral part of "The Great Gatsby"'s music that I'll be surprised if it isn't nominated as well. After that, I'll be intrigued if Coldplay nabs a spot for "Atlas," I've heard "The Butler" has several original songs (but I haven't seen it yet), and then there's always one that shows up outta left field that's usually the best, most interesting one. ;)

Re: “CD Review: Disney's "Frozen" Soundtrack

"Let It Go" has to win Best Original Song come Oscar time. Either that or "I See Fire" from "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug."
