ABOUT

QUIET, PLEASE! Otherwise you might miss how the piece starts. Three musicians are twittering away on stage, ever louder and ever clearer. A brief portamento, then an arpeggio, followed by… QUIET, PLEASE!! It’s the solo of an aging subscriber, unwrapping a sweet with a portamento in the high frequency range. The piece is supposed to be a trio, for goodness’ sake, not a quartet – QUIET, PLEASE!!! A gradual crescendo comes to our attention, the rhythmic structure grows denser… QUIET, PLEASE!!!! Someone drops a bowl on the floor – a mellow resonance. How can one possibly concentrate on the music in the face of such a smorgasbord of noises?! All it needs now is for a baby to start crying… QUIET, PLEASE!!!!!
