Paul Recital Hall

Performances by:
Daniel Taubenheim, Trumpet and Trevor Nuckols, Horn

On May 9, 2012 at 8:00 pm, I attended a Recital Concert at The Juilliard School for Dance, Drama and Music. The performance was conducted by Daniel Taubernheim on the trumpet and Trevor Nuckols, on the horn. They were both students of Raymond Mase, who is the Chairman of the Brass department and Julie Landsman, who recently retired from the position in 2011. She then became a teacher of music that was also, the former Principal Horn of the Metropolitan Opera. The instruments that were used, the trumpet and the horn are considered part of the Brass family in music. The entire recital performance was about an hour and a half long. I was mostly surprised that the performance started on time. In addition, there weren’t any introduction of the performance at the start of the show. Or did they announce who was coming out to begin. The lights were dimmed to indicate the show was about to begin. The sitting of the concert hall was very different from any other show that I attended. The audience was seated in a semi-circle, facing the stage. The audience consisted of many students, elders, middle aged Caucasian people, and families. There were also several microphones hanging from the ceilings. As the performance entered the stage, they were both dressed in dark suits with white shirts. They were similar to watching an entire orchestra play in a concert hall. The concert was divided into seven recitals. The first piece played was by Gabriel Faurè. According to the Wikipedia, “he was a French composer, organist, pianist and teacher. He was also one of the foremost French composers of his generation, and his musical style that influenced many in the 20th century”. Mr. Faurè was also known for one his

    For my concert review I went to see the Buford high school jazz performance i asked some of my friends to join and they agreed. Everyone was relaxed and were enjoying their evening except me, as I was worrying about writing this paper. If I were to use one word to describe their performance that word would be astonishing. At first, hearing that I was required to attend a concert I was completely turned off. I am very closed minded and automatically thought to myself it would be dreadful. That is…
