When I posted Bel Canto yesterday, I found a choir in Vilnius in Lithuania which had the same name and thought I’d post this from one of their concerts. The soloists are Leva Prudnikovaite and Jazz Pianist Arturus Anuskauskas - Hijo de la Luna in Spanish. This concert was held in 2013 to commemorate Lithuania’s first presidency of the European Union.

Tough crowd! I thought she sounded pretty good!

I’ve heard a lot worse...the pianist was brilliant though!

Now that you write about this, I will add that she hasn't impressed me either, but makes an effort to sing in Spanish. Generally I don't criticize, if I don't like a post I just don't put like or comment and turn the page.

Well I really like the stage background!

No didn’t think much of her singing either....wondered what others though...but you’re the only one to leave a comment! Maybe that speaks volumes!

@Marionville I may become a pain in the proverbial but I can't see why we cannot negatively criticise as well as praise. The background reliefs look rather fun!

@rogerbenham I agree on both counts! I have found that nobody wants to stick their necks out and criticise music posts, but I think as long as it’s constructive criticism it’s fine. We can’t all be expected to like everything.

@Marionville, @rogerbenham Has someone removed a comment? I see Roger liking the background but neither commentator mentions what is wrong with her singing.

@FrayedBear I guess I didn't need to say that her singing did nothing for me. Marionville got the impact of my statement. I thought the background was the best bit.
Being the only "7" here commenting maybe I am the only one seeking the points to nowhere.

@rogerbenham I can accept that you do not like the performance and that to you the background is the best part. However is there anything technically wrong with her voice or performance?

@FrayedBear No. Does that mean that I should shut up and keep my feelings to myself? If I do that I might as well drop out of the musical groups. I am reasonably talented as a musician. I have a considerable education in classical music. I sang the 2nd tenor part alone in a cathedral choir. I have sung with many different choral societies. I have played several instruments and been the leader of both a choir and two different musical groups. It is highly likely that my parents played me Bach in my cradle. In London I saw performances given by some of the great world conductors. Should I take my opinions elsewhere? If the answer is yes, well that's fine. It is not going to hurt me.

@FrayedBear There is nothing wrong at all with her performance on a technical level, but there are voices that we like and those that we don’t care to listen to, for whatever reason they do not please our ears. If the listening experience is not enjoyable we are perfectly entitled to say so. When I used to go to music festivals when I was younger, I remember having to listen to many singers who had been trained to sing properly and knew the technique of breath control and pitch, however without a mellifluousness to the voice. I would put this singer in that category.

@FrayedBear, @rogerbenham No need for this rancour gentlemen! This is my group in case neither of you have noticed, and I will not allow it to descend into squabbling. Roger and I understand each other Richard, we both thought the same about this singer. A performance is not merely singing all the notes correctly, but the singer needs to connect with the audience, and the voice also needs to be pleasing to the ears. Sadly, we found that not to be the case here, but it is always going to be a matter of personal taste what we like to listen to and what appeals to us as individuals. Roger, all opinions are welcome in my groups.

@Marionville & @RogerBenham - no squabbling - just seeking elucidation for the untrained like myself.

@Marionville I have no problem with that - you obviously haven't read some of my coments in "Traditional and Folkmusic" or Rossy's Aural Adventures.

@rogerbenham You are totally taking my comment in the wrong light. Please read my other response.

@Marionville Exactly. Quite so. Thank you. To FrayedBear: I'm sorry Richard but the way you phrased your question seemed like an attack. Marionville and I have different tastes in music but we both have technical backgrounds. Let's all have a jolly wonderful day and go on to other things like getting depressed about the state of world affairs. Me. I'm off to the local farmers' market just like I remember doing when I was a small child.

@rogerbenham I’m watching my team Scotland play against the “Auld Enemy” England at Rugby for the Calcutta Cup, in the Six Nations tournament.. it’s on TV from Edinburgh.... I’ve had to get a drink to steady my nerves! So far England are in the lead 0-3, but it’s early days!
