Indigo Girls rock Zoo Tunes by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Indigo Girls
Mercy and Cuteness loved Lesbian artists Indigo Girls at Zoo Tunes on July 21. Mt. Moriah, the warm-up band, had an apt folk sound. Cuteness said, 'They really sound like they are from North Carolina.' High points were 'The Reckoning' and 'The Letting Go.'

The Grammy award-winning duo Amy Ray and Emily Saliers then took the stage with their zingy originals, tight harmonies, and fine guitar work. Cuteness liked the way they said, 'Thanks, y'all.'

The group opened upbeat and stayed that way with 'Learn to Yield,' 'Fighting for the Love of My Life,' 'Without a Heart,' and 'Get Out the Map.' They slowed down with a sing-along, 'Power of Two.' The fast speed returned for 'Hide Yourself for Me' and 'Fill It Up Again.'

'Everything in Its Own Time' also slowed down nicely. Cuteness said, 'Nice guitar work on that one.' Mt. Moriah came out for another slow one, 'My Heart Is for Your Breaking.' 'You Were Only Joking' sped up again.

The band has a new album coming out. 'What I Love About You' was a sweet slow song Emily wrote for the album. A request, 'If You Want to Grow,' picked up speed. 'Go, Go, Go' and 'Shame on You' stayed there. Mt. Moriah came out again for a sing-along of 'The Closer I Am to God' that had everyone up and dancing. 'Chicken Man' followed nicely.

A new song by Amy, 'I Have the Moon,' was slow and soulful. 'How Long Till My Soul Gets it Right' was a strong closer.'

Seattle Chamber Music Festival
Mercy's friend Reality joined her for Seattle Chamber Music Festival at Westlake Park on July 22. He pointed out that the quality of the sound was good enough to block out most of the traffic noise. There was a clear blue sky above. Mercy said the turnout wasn't very good compared to the festival's previous home at Lakeside School.

Mercy likes to see the pre-recitals, which, unfortunately, are not being broadcast. She went to Benaroya before she went to Westlake. Alon Goldstein's piano presentation of Debussy's 'Preludes from Book II' was pleasing.

At Westlake, 'Introduction and Variations for Flute and Piano in E Minor, D. 802, 'Trockne Blumen,' by Schubert, was done sweetly by Lorna McGhee on flute and Jeewon Park on piano. Villa-Lobos' 'Assobio a Jato (The Jet Whistle) for Flute and Cello' was given thrillingly by McGhee on flute and Johannes Moser on cello.

'Quartet for Strings No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 74, 'Harp' by Beethoven was done passionately by James Ehnes on violin, Amy Schwartz Moretti on violin, Richard O'Neill on viola, and Robert deMaine on cello. Erin Keefe on violin, David Harding on viola, Johannes Moser on cello, and Alon Goldstein on piano did Brahms' 'Quartet for Piano and Strings in C Minor, Op. 60' powerfully.

On July 25, Mercy returned to Benaroya. There, she found Johannes Moser's talk before his cello recital entertaining. He did a surprising rendition of Bach's 'Suite for Cello in G Major, BWV 1007' and Lutoslawski's 'Sacher Variation for Cello.'

Erin Keefe on violin, Aloysia Friedmann on violin, Richard O'Neill on viola, Robert de Maine on cello, Anton Nel on piano were wonderfully in synch in Dohnanyi's 'Quintet for Piano and Strings in C Minor, Op. 1.' Prokofiev's 'Sonata for Piano in F Minor, Op. 80' was done amazingly by James Ehnes on violin and Jon Kimura Parker on piano. They earned a standing ovation. A standing ovation was also given for Shostakovich's 'Trio for Violin, Cello, and Piano No. 2 in E Minor' by Amy Schwartz Moretti on violin, Johannes Moser on cello, and Craig Sheppard on piano.
