A concert to remember
Last night, in the hall of University of Arts there took place a Symphonic Concert with the participation of the soprano Adelina Paloja, of the pianist Kosti Deti and the RTSH orchestra. To conduct the orchestra was Jetmir Barbullushi. Two young musicians from the Albanian music scene, as successful choices from this orchestra, brought each in their own art field, new performances of an very engaging repertoire, interesting and of stylistic contrasts.
The soprano Adelina Paloja from Kosovo well-known for her collaborations with Choir of Kosovo Philharmonic surprised the audience with her elegance, vocal qualities, realization of the nuances of different works, her correct intonation and especially for the emotions she spread. Although with a small voice she was able to complete it with her culture and the organization of artistic tools even in details to create as poetic as expressive character.
The pianist Kosti Deti, who is a proof of the level of our piano school that for the sake of truth has shown that there has been a steady increase in recent decades, due to the level but also to the rivalry within the piano class, showed a very interesting side of his creativity as an instrumentalist. He performed an improvised List, with continuous innovation within a correct reading of the score. Liszt’s top piano technique was expressed in the most natural and simpler way by Kosti.It was not clear why he played with a semi-closed piano, but what was heard was really exciting. As bis it was Satis Gnossienne’s in which it was expressed the delicate sensibility of the pianist, though sometimes the left hand sounded over the right.
The Khachaturian waltz as well as the piece from “Swan Lake” and “The Nutcracker” Tchaikovsky ballet brought nothing new except the correct execution sometimes without giving the proper dynamic contrasts. We may even say that the orchestra sounded somewhat even stronger when accompanying the singer. If we talked about the successes of the piano school in Albania, we might think on the school of conducting that need to be discussed about by the music researchers and musicologist to find out our illness even in music.
