Black & White Sunday: Light
While I was listening to a recording of Keith Jarrett’s Bridge of Light for Viola and Orchestra, a beautiful contemporary classic 17 minutes piece, I felt like the only audience in a private concerto.
The image surfaced in my mind of a small, beautifully lit bridge as the tones of the masterfully played viola took me back to the summer I first visited Vicenza.
Note on etymology:
The etymology of the word concerto “is uncertain, but it seems to have originated from the conjunction of the two Latin words conserere (meaning to tie, to join, to weave) and certamen (competition, fight): the idea is that the two parts in a concerto, the soloist and the orchestra or concert band, alternate episodes of opposition, cooperation, and independence in the creation of the music flow.” (source Wikipedia)
