(Denver=Wongeol Jeong) Friday evening, the temperature was dropping.


As usual, around the Denver Center for the Arts, the views after sunset were clear. Rarely, people walked, cars followed the signal, going and standing.


Lights of light bulbs covered the street.


I parked and was about to cross the street, and across the street a man who looked like conductor Christopher Dragon was hurriedly entering the restaurant. He had 30 minutes until the concert, so I thought, 'He's going to eat something.'


The concert started with Rossini's 'William tell overture'. The soft melody soon ended with a strong march-style ensemble.


The concerto for the Tubin's double bass that followed created a strange atmosphere. As unrealistic as the names of double bass and contrabass were moving my heart.


In Elgar's 'Enigma Variation', a huge wall of sound was flowing along with the conductor dragon's gestures. Sound was flowing through the wall, sometimes like water, with different colors, thicknesses, and textures. And while concentrating on the flow of that sound, my mind calmed itself down.


Although he is a composer who does not exist in the world now, it was nice to meet Elgar's music again in this way.


Thank you. Edward Elgar. There, with your beloved wife Alice, may you rest in peace...
