Random information on the term “Fair”:
A street fair is a fair that celebrates the character of a neighborhood. As its name suggests, it is usually held on the main street of a neighborhood.
The principal component of street fairs are booths used to sell goods (particularly food) or convey information; sometimes they have carnival rides and parades, as well. Many have live music and dance demonstrations.
They are usually no more than a few blocks long, although some fairs, such as the 9th Avenue International Food Festival in New York City and the Solano Stroll in Northern California extend more than a mile. A fair only one block long is commonly called a block party.
Street fairs vary greatly in character, even within one city. Annual street fairs in Seattle, for example, include the University District Street Fair, featuring the work of numerous craftspeople, and requiring that the person who actually made the goods that are for sale must be present in their own booth; the Fremont Fair features crafts from around the world, as well as the Summer Solstice Parade and Pageant, famed for its painted naked cyclists. In the same city, the Capitol Hill Block Party fences off several blocks, charges admission, and features many of the city’s best known rock bands while the Chinatown-International District Summer Fair has a distinctly Asian-American and Pacific Islander flavor, with taiko drummers, martial arts demonstrations, and Hawaiian dance.
Random information on the term “EXPO”:
The Concerto for Piano and Orchestra is the first piano concerto by the Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg. The work was commissioned by the Helsinki Festival on September 4, 1991 and completed in 1994. It is dedicated to the pianist Paul Crossley.
The concerto has a duration of approximately 24 minutes and is composed in three numbered movements played without pause. The composition is partially modeled after Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major.
The work is scored for a solo piano and an orchestra consisting of two flutes (doubling piccolo), oboe, cor anglais, two clarinets, bass clarinet, two bassoons (doubling contrabassoon), two horns, trumpet, trombone, tuba, two percussionists, harp, and strings.
Anthony Holden of The Observer called it “a dynamic, multi-layered work in which piano and orchestra take turns leading each other a hectic dance.” He wrote, “Part-modelled on Ravel’s G major concerto, its subtle, restless harmonic shifts perfectly suit Lindberg’s stated aim of reclaiming the piano as a lyrical rather than a percussive instrument; amid the blazing climax before its diminuendo ending, his mighty cadenza did indeed prove as ‘wicked’ as promised.” Arnold Whittall of Gramophone opined, “At nearly 30 minutes, the concerto has its moments of routine, but these come earlier rather than later, and from the middle of the second movement the music builds an absorbing and exciting soundscape, broadening out in ways which announce one of Lindberg’s most productive affinities – with his great Finnish precursor Sibelius.” Andrew Clements of The Guardian contrasted the work to Lindberg’s Kraft, observing, “Certainly the transparency of the Piano Concerto (1994), with its classically proportioned scoring, makes a sharp contrast, as the solo piano threads its way, Berio-like, through iridescent textures and crystalline instrumental lines.”
