JakArt@2008 – ASAH Indonesian Tour II Audience Response

ASAH Indonesian Tour II
March 25 – May 19

The Audience response for ASAH Indoensia Tour II will be added after the tour.
The following is the response from previous tour: ASAH Indonesian Tour I, 2006-2007

Malang, Jawa Timur :

Classical music is so beautiful and so touching.

Why are the classical music performances always formal and why do they give such an arrogant impression?  Classical music is actually enjoyable for everybody.

Not everybody can enjoy classical music.

This classical performance is brought to the general public and eliminates the stigma that classical music is only for the elite.

This performance has really made me imagine meeting Mozart

The perception that classical music is boring, is wrong. This classical music proved to be very pleasant to listen to.

Finally, I now understand that classical music is not an exclusive artform. It’s very interesting, really!!!

Thanks to ASAH for bringing the classical music so close to our hearts.

The dialogues and discussions during the ASAH event were very educucational and eliminated a gap existing between the audience and classical music.

Denpasar Bali:

The classical music makes me sleepy.  It is like being in a strange place.

I feel sadness, joy, comfort, and peace during the ASAH show like experiencing a normal day in our life.

Nusa Tenggara Timur (Kupang, Maumere):

I get goose bumps when I watch the concert that is played with so many notes and that seems to be so complicated. I wonder how they were able to study and then produce this beautiful and unique music.

I never listened or watched a live performance before and now I also find classical music to be good.

Please come to NTT more often so that you can motivate the children here to appreciate classical music, to behave well and stay away from violence.

My ideas about classical music are turned around 180 degrees. At first I thought classical music is boring and played just for old people but after seeing the show with my own eyes I now want to hear it again and again.

Palu, Sulawesi Tengah:

Classical music does not have to be serious. It is enjoyable for everybody.

Thank God Finally I can watch a live classical concert and the classical music proved to be enjoyable for everybody.

Maybe, if “ASAH” didn’t come to Palu, I would never have seen a live classical music performance.

Makasar, Sulawesi Selatan:

So beautiful. the composers at that time were great and create so many wonderful compositions. How about today’s composers?

Listening the classical music is very soothing to the soul.

Semarang, Jawa Tengah:

Honestly, it was the first time I watched a live classical music concert. Basically I don’t really like it, but after the live performance I was challenged to enjoy it.

Classical music is not as eerie as I thought.

Magelang, Jawa Tengah:

Classical music is more beautiful than the most beautiful thing.

Concerts like this should be organized more often. They grow our feelings and thoughtfulness which can be very useful in our daily lives.

The classical music is very beautiful, imaginative, expressive and inspiring: romantic.
