I heard music concert at University of Macao Cultural Centre by Macao Orchestra. Although I am not talented in music, I still felt interesting and appreciated at this concert. After this concert, I started thinking why I should appreciate classical music because the music concert I heard was talking about classical music. With reference to Chapter 1 ‘Musical Values’ of Nicholas Cook’s Music: A Very Short Introduction and taking one of the pieces performed in the concert as example. The book showed me three reasons of why it is necessary for non-music students as well as the general public of Macau to appreciate classical music. I found some Idea and concept I never thought about and now I consider it is deserved for me to consider its values with details. The book talked about authenticity in music. I thought that is one of most important reason we should appreciate classical music.

Just like the first music of this concert-長城, this music was introduced by conductor. He said the low pitch sound is represented back, gray and not shining color and high pitch sound is represented red and shinning color. The entire music is indicated someone is drawing or painting the picture ‘長城’. However, after this short introduction, I focused on its low pitch sound and high pitch sound and the comparison with high pitch sound and low pitch sound.
