Concierto de Trío Atlántico

Concierto de Trío Atlántico. ¡Terrible!

Concierto de Trío Atlántico. ¡Terrible!

I had been warned by the reception at Centro Astoria-Bambi that people got there an hour before the concert started to get a good seat. I was late, caught a taxi, and only got there five minutes before the concert started.

If on the balcony, unless in the front row by the railing, you could not see.

I asked, could I sit on the steps. I was told no, fire risk. The woman who seemed to be in charge announced no one could stand, fire risk.

Some people did stand, to who she was very unpleasant.

If people stand at the front, fair comment, they are blocking the view, but if they stand at the back? To claim fire risk, was nonsense.

I had a huge row with the woman. I told her it was a disgrace to sell tickets for a concert where one could not see. She offered me a refund or suggested I sit elsewhere.

During the interval I went downstairs where I found there was a bar. But the seat was incredibly uncomfortable.

As a rule, I do not go to see performers in fancy dress, oops sorry, traditional costume, as they are usually rubbish playing for tourists to give them ´authentic´ Canary culture.

Trío Atlántico were no exception. They were awful, they were unbelievably bad. So bad it was surreal. It was like being in a Monty Python sketch.

El Condor Pasa is a classic made well known by Simon and Garfunkel. But it is one of those classics that is so overdone that it is done to death.

Trío Atlántico tortured El Condor Pasa to death. It was torture to listen to. I could not believe anyone could play it so badly.

When they sang I wanted to put my hands to my ears.

During the intervals they carried their instruments away. Why, did they think we were going to steal them?

The organisation was as bad. Towards the end it was announced CDs were for sale! Why were they not on display when we arrived? Why did the group not hang around and offer to sign? If there were CDs for sale, I did not see any. Not that I wished to buy.

Early in the week I had seen Ensamble dos orillas en concert. They were brilliant! In comparison, Trío Atlántico were a grave disappointment, you had to be tone deaf to endure them!

    SR.KEITHPP¨S, Lo primero que debe hacer es firmar con su nombre yo estuve en ese concierto y fue muy bueno, es usted persona de lengua viperina y de muy mal gusto y el grupo y la organización fue perfecta y por lo que veo sus conocimientos musicales dejan mucho que desear o sea que es ud. un analfabeto musicalmente hablando.

    Sadly the music was not great. I have had the good fortune to attend excellent concerts in Puerto de la Cruz and meet very talented musicians. This I am sorry to say was not one of those occasions. Anyone who thought the music great would have to be tone deaf. It was embarrasing to listen to. The music was so bad it was like a Monty Python sketch.

    The organisation was abysmal. The woman in charge was bloody rude, not only to me but to other people too. I was at another concert and the woman was again bloody rude, this time to guests staying at the apartments.

    If you thought either the music or organisation was good, you must have very low standards.

    Where for example were the CDs she said were on sale? Not that I would have wished to purchase.

    Lamentablemente, la música no era grande. He tenido la suerte de asistir a conciertos excelentes en Puerto de la Cruz y cumplir con músicos muy talentosos. Esto que siento tener que decir no era una de esas ocasiones. Cualquier persona que pensaba que la buena música tendría que ser sordo para los tonos. Fue embarazoso para escuchar. La música era tan malo que era como un sketch de Monty Python.

    La organización fue abysmall. La mujer en el cargo fue brusca sangre, no sólo a mí sino a otras personas también. Yo estaba en otro concierto y la mujer volvió a ser grosero con sangre, esta vez para los huéspedes alojados en los apartamentos.

    Si pensabas que ya sea la música o de la organización fue buena, debe tener estándares muy bajos.

    Cuando, por ejemplo, fueron los CDs dijo estaban a la venta? No que yo hubiera deseado para comprar.

    Se sigue ud. equivocando, el centro astoria es un lugar numero 1 para escuchar musica, yo llevo muchos años asistiendo a sus
    conciertos, lo que pienso es que ud. es una persona amargada y
    de mal gusto y este grupo es de lo mejor que hay en canarias,
    yo les he visto tocar en muchos lugares, otra cosa es que ud. no
    entienda la música que ellos hacen. Y aprenda y escuche antes
    de hablar porque no tiene ni idea el condor pasa no es de simon y
    garfunkel es una cancion que viene de los andes y precisamente la
    version de S&G NO ES LA MEJOR ES BASTANTE NORMAL.
    Para dar opiniones hay que ser musico y saber de musica y ud. es
    un simple aprediz de critico musical, si no le gusto pues no vaya
    mas ignorante.

    You are coming across as a complete imbecile. To claim this group to be the best in the Canaries has to be seen as a sick joke and is an insult to the many excellent musicians in Tenerife, much less the Canaries.

    I suggest you get out and about and sample more music.

    The venue is very poor. Poor acoustically and poor visually. Try sitting on the upper floor. Unless adajacent to the railing impossible to see the performers.

    ————————————————–

    Usted viene a través como un imbécil completo. Para reclamar este grupo para ser el mejor en las Islas Canarias tiene que ser visto como una broma de mal gusto y es un insulto a los muchos músicos excelentes en Tenerife, y mucho menos las Islas Canarias.

    Le sugiero que salir por ahí y tomar muestras de más música.

    El lugar es muy pobre. Mala acústica y visual de los pobres. Trate de sentarse en el piso superior. A menos que adajacent a la barandilla imposible ver a los artistas intérpretes o ejecutantes.

    I am well aware that El Condor Pasa is from the Andes and if you read and comprehended what I had written you will see I note that it was made popular by Simon and Garfunkel.

    I have heard many times El Condor Pasa performed by native South American Indians from the Andes playing on traditional instruments. At least one group was only too happy to give me a copy of their recording as they saw how much I appreciated their music.

    As I have already written, you need to get out and about more, you may then learn to appreciate good music.

    Soy muy consciente de que El Cóndor Pasa es de los Andes y si usted lee y se comprende lo que había escrito, verá que tenga en cuenta que se hizo popular por Simon y Garfunkel.

    He oído muchas veces El Cóndor Pasa a cabo por los nativos de los indios sudamericanos de los Andes, jugando en los instrumentos tradicionales. Al menos un grupo era más que dispuestos a darme una copia de su registro al ver lo mucho que aprecia la música no.

    Como ya he escrito, lo que necesita para salir y algo más, entonces usted puede aprender a apreciar la buena música.

    It is exceedingly rare for me to trash comments. Comments are for intelligent contribution, not for moronic trolls to post their garbage!

    When moronic trolls keep posting abuse because they cannot handle legitimate criticism, only serves to reinforce how bad this trio was.
