As I approached the Royal Albert Hall, I noticed the beautiful architecture of the building. The experience of being there in London was amazing! I felt that I could learn a lot about the building itself just by looking at the stunning art work surrounding it.
During the first part of the concert the Scottish Chamber Orchestra played Pulcinella by Igor Stravinsky, The music being played made me feel relaxed and as if I was just focused on them playing, nothing else. Each piece I heard affected me in some sort of way. Some pieces made me feel happy and some pieces made me feel sad. I really liked the way that some pieces of music included a range of characters which changed either gradually or instantly, this engaged me more into the performance. I also liked the way the performers moved to the music, and used their instruments expressively, to me; this involved me more into what they were playing. Whilst the orchestra were playing, the three opera singers; Karen Cargill, Andrew Staples and Brindley Sheratt, shocked me to the limit. Their singing was breath-taking! When they all sang together, the sound filled the hall in such a dramatic way that everyone was completely silent, waiting for what was going to happen next!
