Swing Shift -vvz

Here's a short chamber concert that I attended a fortnight ago, featuring the I-Sis Trio. I had heard them perform before so I knew I probably wouldn't be disappointed.

The programme consisted of popular tunes from reasonably diverse genres of music. Surprisingly, I recognized most of the pieces, or at least the composer was familiar to me. There was a Piazolla slow tango, well-known Spanish tune Malaguena and also the happy music of Fats Waller. The harp was played like a flamenco guitar for Malaguena, which I thought was really cool. They also played Take Five, although it sounded a tad too classical for me. The cello solo for this was rather interesting though; parts of it were played like two voices instead of one.

Overall, it was a reasonably enjoyable concert. Suitably light for a Sunday evening.
