Arata Yumi 弓新2015 小提琴協奏曲之夜  

On 14 march, originally, I was expecting to hear Midori Goto playing the violin. However, when we arrived at CKS Memorial Hall, we learned that Midori Goto had to stay in the USA due to her health. In the beginning, I was sort of disappointed to learn that Midori Goto wasn't going to perform in Taiwan this year, but we still wanted to attend the concert. The violinist who substituted Midori Goto was a young violin player called aged Arata Yumi. He's only 22 years old, and he's a winner of several competitions such as Henryk Wieniawski International Young Violinist Competition in Lublin (2006), 1st Guadagnini Competition in Tokyo (2011), etc. 

今年3月的時候,我本來滿心期待要來聽著名的日本小提琴家宓多里演奏西貝流士:D小調小提琴協奏曲。不過,當我抵達中正紀念堂時,赫然發現當日宓多里因身體不適而無法來台演出。天哪~ 還挺令我錯愕的。主辦單位已盡最大能力向聽眾致歉,但是還是有些聽眾跑去退票了。既然人都到了,何不聆賞呢? 代打的是日本新秀小提琴家弓新。這算是意外的收穫吧。弓新很年輕,1992年出生的他,現年也才22歲 (足歲; 生日不明)。弓新曾囊括多項大獎,同時也是維尼奧夫斯基小提琴比賽有史以來最年輕得獎者。好吧,就讓我們來拭目以待吧!

Arata Yumi 弓新2015 小提琴協奏曲之夜 彭廣林教授 音樂導聆  

 

Before the concert started, there was an introduction about the programme. One of the main work of the concert we attended was Jean sibelius's Violin Concerto in D minor, and the professor who talked about it is a violin player. He also performed a little bit of the work and told us which recording he personally felt was the best. The professor said that Jean Sibelius was a Finnish Nationalist, and he said that in the beginning of Jean sibelius's Violin Concerto in D minor, the music sounded like snowflakes. When he described it, I was imagining that we were in a freezing land covered with snow. I found the introduction helpful. Otherwise it might be somewhat boring to hear a work and not know what the composer meant to express. 

在節目開始前,有一場音樂導聆。主講者是彭廣林教授,他本身也是小提琴演奏家。因為時間有限,彭廣林教授主要介紹的是當日的主曲目西貝流士:D小調小提琴協奏曲。他提到西貝流士本身是國民樂派的作曲家,所以樂曲顯得澎湃激昂,彷彿象徵芬蘭這個百年受到鄰國俄羅斯的欺負的國家,不願屈服的強悍性格。樂曲一開始,那種小聲的音樂,彷彿在描述雪花紛飛的北國。我當時腦海就是冰天雪地的畫面,可以感覺寒風刺骨。這場音樂導聆真的很精彩,不僅有樂曲分析,彭廣林教授現場也演奏部份的曲目,當琴聲一發,我的心宛如被觸動般,很感謝主辦單位精心安排,能聽到彭廣林教授精闢解說,簡直是福氣。否則,光是看youtube影片,實在很難想像西貝流士到底要傳達的意境為何。

When we entered the concert hall, I opened the brochure about the programme and was surprised to know that the conductor for the concert was Zhang Xian, a Chinese female conductor. During the concert, Zhang Xian seemed energetic, but that's what any conductor is supposed to be, haha. I don't have much thought about Arata Yumi's music, but I think that in such an unexpected condition, a substitute must be really good. It's really hard to memorise a piece which lasts more than 30 minutes within a short time.

當我們進入到演奏廳,我這時才認真翻閱曲目介紹。沒想到指揮家是來自中國的張弦! 我不是因為她來自中國而訝異,而是剛好數月前,一個朋友也聽過張弦指揮的演奏,沒想到幾個月後,我也有幸親耳看到張弦指揮樂團,當下真的很高興我沒有因為宓多里因故無法演出而返回住所。張弦在這場音樂會指揮時,顯得精力充沛,不過指揮家不都這樣嗎?呵呵。至於弓新的演出,我個人沒有太大意見。我覺得在如此臨時被通知的情形,要努力記下超過30分鐘的曲目,可不是一件容易的事情,也難怪當弓新演奏完畢,有人拍手大喊安可,弓新並沒出場演奏安可曲。光是在台下看弓新演奏,我都覺得這曲目可不簡單,演奏完畢,大概精神也消耗大半,恐怕無多餘的體力演奏曲子了吧。

I hope that both Zhang Xian and Arata Yumi enjoyed their stay in Taiwan, but I still hope that one day I can hear Midori Goto play the violin live.

希望這次張弦跟弓新都可以在台擁有美好時光。不過,我還是很期待有機會可以親眼目睹宓多里的風采!
