Music with dramatic gesture and sweet and sour Gutersloh

At the recent concert of chamber music in St. Mathhew church, three teachers from different music schools of Gutersloh played solemn music. The concert was part of the art in church scheme and the performers proved themselves as beautiful soloists and worked beautifully as a trio.
Olga Manko (Music and Art school teacher) played in the first part of the concert together with the pianist Chihiro Masaki (Schmidt music school).
Four compositions ranging from baroque to modern age had a touch of emotional drama. Splendid team-work was imprinted in Adagio con variazioni by Ottorino Respigi. The clear sound of Olga Manko's cello sounded stinging, yet sweet. The musician proved her alt technique, which should be expressed precisely in this composition. The expressiveness merged with the beautiful sound, which demonstrated a vivid and inspirational performance.
Compostions by Sir William Bolton are rarely played. Olga Manko performed Passacaglia and impressed the audience with the intense sound and virtuosity. An adagio by Bach the musician dedicated to a russian performer who died in 2003 in a car crush.
Despite the jazz rythms at the end of the fisrt part, the rest of the programme kept the initial course. In the end the musicians played trio and performed a number of compositions by A. Paizzolla.
