神韵交响乐巡演 震撼卡内基音乐厅 Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra Returns to Carnegie Hall

二零一四神韵交响乐团巡回演出,在十月五日首演轰动美国历史文化名城波士顿之后,于十月十一日返回纽约这个世界大都会,以两场气势恢宏的中西合璧音乐会再次震撼了卡内基音乐厅这座举世闻名的音乐殿堂。现场观众,无论来自何方,有着何种文化背景,无不在神韵天音中浑然忘我,与之同声相应,身、心、灵得以净化、滋养与升华。

神韵交响乐团的近百位世界顶级音乐家和声乐家,在两位杰出指挥家的引领下,以西方精准、辉煌的管弦乐为基奠,烘托东方细腻、悠远的器乐旋律,浑然天成地诠释神韵原创舞蹈音乐及西方古典音乐大师感情丰沛的经典名曲,传神呈现了神州博大悠远的文明与世界上特色各异、韵味十足的风土人情。

从恢宏雄厚的神韵原创音乐《众神下世》开场锣声响起,满场观众就被带入一个终生难忘的神奇美妙的音乐世界。男高音歌唱家用神韵独特发声技法演绎著名意大利歌剧《图兰多》的咏叹调《今夜难以入眠》(Nessun dorma),从头至尾一直在难度极大的男高音B和C调自如盘旋,震撼了全场,掌声雷动;女高音歌唱家的高音结尾,最后一口气唱出一、两分钟不间断的超高、超长音,远远超越了观众的预期,令整个剧场沸腾;闻所未闻的由三位顶级演奏家与交响乐协奏的二胡三重奏、小号三重奏,带给观众连连的惊喜;而面对他们耳熟能详的西方音乐大师们经典曲目被演绎得如此完美传神、富有情感,很多观众都和拍颌首击节如见久违老友,甚至感动落泪。

  

一般音乐会,西方人习惯在演出最后才起立鼓掌,而神韵却在每个曲目演奏结束就赢得全场见多识广、挑剔的纽约客经久不息的如雷掌声,时有观众起立鼓掌,指挥多次谢幕。演出结束时全场观众更齐齐起立鼓掌、喝彩,两位指挥分别指挥加奏安可曲,全体艺术家两次出场谢幕后,观众仍不舍离去。

  

音乐家:感动落泪十多次

“太美了!我至少十次落泪,”演奏长笛和竖琴的伊丽莎白•帕科塔(Elizabeth Pecota)女士慕名从宾夕法尼亚州专程而来欣赏神韵音乐会,其融合东西方乐器的方式令她惊叹,“男高音、女高音、每位演奏家,打击乐、铜管演奏者,每位都是一流,我好喜欢!〞

自己经常举办爵士乐音乐会的金先生(Breyone King)在看到神韵音乐会的信息后,选了最好的座位来体验这不同寻常的音乐风格与传统,现场演出大大超过其预期。

  

“我触摸到了音乐,而不仅仅是听到了音乐。音乐在我心中流淌,我能看到她,体验到她。在音乐中的恐怖和黑暗降临的时刻,我能体会到那与自己经验的联系……音乐复又变得明朗,最后是胜利。”

  

金先生非常享受整场演出,“声乐和器乐都极为出色,中西方乐器的结合天衣无缝,结束时还有一丝幽默的感觉。这绝对是值得欣赏的演出,我都想知道下一次演出的时间。”

  

音乐家劳埃德(Lloyd)也爱极了神韵交响乐:“我非常非常感动!神韵交响乐团把东西方的音乐精髓结合在一起,她们结合了西方音乐古典的传统,并不仅是原貌呈现,而是汲取了古典的精髓,在其基础上重新建立了一套全新、更好的系统。”

  

著名学者:希望更多人欣赏神韵音乐

在世界神经研究领域深具影响力的纽约大学教授艾尔克霍龙•古博格(Elkhonon Goldberg) 博士是著名脑科学网站SharpBrains的创始人和首席顾问。喜爱亚洲文化的他还是头一次接触中国音乐,他对神韵乐团中的二胡尤感兴趣,“希望神韵交响乐团能在纽约有更多的演出,让更多人有机会欣赏。”

  

媒体制作人:一种改变生命的体验

纽约作家和新闻工作者西里娅•法伯(Celia Farber)感到神韵交响乐团的演奏中有一种在西方交响乐中难以感受到的精神:“在这音乐中,在这些演奏者之间,在他们与观众之间,你能感受到一种精神,而在西方音乐会那种精神没出来。也许是因为神韵音乐家们技术更出色,他们的演奏中充满这种鲜活的精神。”

媒体制作人莉莲•吉尔顿(Lillian Gilden)女士在音乐会结束后,久久沉浸在神韵音乐带来的震撼中:“太壮观了!我从没看过如此规模的音乐会。音乐音响效果十分震慑,每一分钟都是享受,而西方音乐与中国古典音乐的完美融合更是一绝。”

  

作曲家作出的那些流动的音符令她感动欲泪:“那些中国作曲家的原创作品特别感人,那些作品充满情感,在精神层面上带给我很多触动……音乐家的演奏和歌唱家的歌声、是如此的特别。能来听这场音乐会我很感激。”

  

媒体人比仁•马吉姆达(Biren Majmudar)则认为这场音乐会“完全是一种改变生命的体验,她打开了新的境界,指点迷津。我都没有意识到她什么时候开始、又什么时候结束的,就希望一直这样演下去。所有的作品都是如此美妙的原创。这些音乐带我穿越时空,过去与现代交融。我脑海中想象,随着音乐穿梭。我推荐大家不要只看一遍,而是要多次看,反复看。”

  

纽约富商:神韵音乐让人充满活力、激情与能量

Robert Canberg是负责纽约长岛汉普顿斯(Hamptons)百万豪华别墅的房地产商,许多纽约富豪、明星与影星都是其客户。他与夫人深深地被既有神韵交响乐团原创、又有西方交响乐经典作品的节目所吸引,神韵音乐深不可测的意境与磅礴气势令他们震撼不已。

  

“我看过很多交响乐音乐会,但象这样把中国音乐与西方音乐融合在一起却是绝无仅有,这是非常棒的融合!我太太和我都很欣赏这种中西文化的融合。”堪博格先生在欣赏音乐时,“感到充满了活力、激情和能量。”

  

游客:感恩神韵交响乐抚慰人心

  

从佛罗里达来纽约与妹妹聚会的索菲•威尔若格(Sophie Wilzig)是位历史工作者,她对神韵音乐家们满怀感激:“他们将身心全部奉献给了音乐,才能让我们获得如此美好、壮观的享受。”

  

伴随着古典音乐长大的索菲是第一次欣赏中西乐器合璧的交响乐,她不住赞叹神韵音乐美得难以言表:“太美了!太美了!音乐家们的演奏天衣无缝,没有任何一个不协调的音符。你听那音乐的回音,余音绕梁,实在令人惊奇!我很喜欢在后面演奏手鼓、鼓和钹的三位女孩,我目不转睛地盯着她们,没有错过任何一个敲击。”

  

妹妹德布拉(Debra)是北卡一所大学的学生顾问,刚搬到纽约不久。听了神韵交响乐,她感到“脑清目明,浑身轻松,这是有治愈疗效的音乐,这正是我在找寻的。”

  

菲利浦•谢尔维(Philip Shelvey)和夫人格温(Gwen)来自加拿大,第一次听神韵交响乐的他们心灵的震撼难以言表,为能在来此旅游期间欣赏神韵交响乐而感恩。

  

“听过这场壮观的音乐会,一切其它音乐会对我来说都微不足道了!” 谢尔维太太说自己从第二个节目《风雨中的莲》开始就忍不住流泪,“其中的二胡演奏非常打动人心,让我体会到了信仰被迫害的痛楚,以及天晴之后的欣悦。”“歌唱家的演唱非常的好,绝对的好!声音充满力量,真是太美妙了!”

  

神韵交响乐团二零一四北美巡演将继续在华盛顿DC、加拿大多伦多、美国芝加哥、佛州迈阿密以及佛州萨拉索塔上演。

Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra returned to Carnegie Hall's Perelman Stage for the new 2014 season on October 11 after debuting at Symphony Hall in Boston on October 4.

  

Audience members appreciated the orchestra's distinctiveness, with its original Chinese compositions and arrangements with Western orchestration, and its authenticity in capturing the essence of Western classics. The impact was described as “spiritually uplifting in a way that was most unusual” and “it connected with my spirit.”

  

The orchestra features this season's new original works adapted from Shen Yun Performing Arts dances, such as “Grand Descent of the Deities,” “The Warriors of Wudang Mountain,” and “The Steadfast Lotus.”

  

It also pays tribute to celebrated Western classics by composers like Antonin Dvorak and Mikhail Glinka. An erhu trio, a trumpet trio, and three bel canto vocalists were also featured in the concert.

A Moving and Enriching Experience for Musicians

Hailing from Easton, Pennsylvania, Ms. Elizabeth Pecota, a musician who plays the flute and harp, rated the orchestra as “top-notch.” The experience was one that had her crying “at least ten times.”

  

“I loved the way they mixed the East and the West together, I loved the trumpet pieces, the vocalists were superb, the music was varied and rich and covered all types of styles. It was just wonderful,” Ms. Pecota said.

Breyone King, hip hop, R&B, jazz, and acoustic music producer, felt spiritually connected to the music of Shen Yun, “I felt it more than I listened to it. The music was moving through me so I was able to get visions and experiences. At the end of some pieces, I would feel it and get chills. … The music was connecting to my spirit, and it brightened up and moved into a feeling of victory.”

  

“Spiritually Uplifting in a Way That Was Most Unusual”

Local writer and journalist Ms. Celia Farber said, “I absolutely loved it. I was crying at the end, it’s a little hard to describe, as it was so different, it was magical, very very spiritually uplifting in a way that was most unusual.”

  

This feeling touched Ms. Farber deeply and she noted the differences between Shen Yun and her other concert experiences:

  

“I have to say it’s just a spirit that you feel in the room, in the music, and between the musicians, and between the musicians and the audience It’s really hard to say why, it's just different from a Western classical concert, maybe more technical, as they were technically brilliant.”

  

She continued to elaborate that, for her, in a “Western concert, something about the spirit would be more subdued” while the spirit of the Shen Yun concert she had just experienced “was just really full and alive--you could feel it.”

  

Masterfully Original Production

Media producer Ms. Lillian Gilden said that she had never been to a concert with as many orchestra members as today’s Shen Yun concert.

  

“Spectacular! And what I especially loved [is that] it was big, it was a huge sound, and I loved every minute of it,” Ms. Gilden said. “I also loved the idea of combining it with classical numbers. I thought it was unique and very special. I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

  

Ms. Gilden commented on the pieces that were adapted from Shen Yun’s dance performances.

  

“I thought the Chinese composers … , those numbers were especially moving. Those were incredible, for me, very emotional. I really felt the sound and sensitivity of the musicians, as well as the soloists, were very special. It was emotional for me, in many ways. I’m very grateful I was here,” said Ms. Gilden.

  

Another media producer, Biren Majmudar, thought the concert was a life-changing experience, and that it opened up a new level and guides the way. He said, “I did not even realize when she began or ended. I just hoped that it could keep going... All of the pieces were so beautifully original. This music transported me through time space, between the past and now. I imagined it in my mind and was transported with the music.”

  

Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra will continue its North America tour in Toronto on October 16, Chicago on October 21, Miami on October 25, and Sarasota on October 27. Information on upcoming performances and tickets can be found on www.shenyun.com/symphony.
