Did we finally get a musical biopic that is original and different for once? I’m very confident in saying we did! Starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Richard Madden, and Charlie Rowe, Rocketman is a fantasy-style, musical biopic from Dexter Fletcher (the man who took over the reins of Bohemian Rhapsody). The film […]

Armchair Critical

Comparisons between Rocketman and Bohemian Rhapsody are inevitable. Both tell the story of flamboyant entertainers from conservative families, shedding their mundane identities for showmanship, grappling with their sexuality, living a life of decadence and alienating their friends. Rocketman, the Elton John variation on the theme, is directed by Dexter Fletcher, who was hired for the […]

19075911432 / Vladimir Feltsman – The Complete Sony Recordings (8CD) 費爾茲曼Sony唱片公司錄音全集 8CD 費爾茲曼,鋼琴 ◎ 隆-提伯鋼琴大賽首獎得主,曾受邀到白宮演奏的鋼琴家 ◎ 收錄1978至1989年間於Sony唱片公司所錄製的所有錄音 ◎ 留聲機雜誌:費爾茲曼對鋼琴的控制令人欽佩。他是一位具有主宰能力的演奏者   專輯收錄隆-提伯鋼琴大賽首獎得主,鋼琴家費爾茲曼1978至1989年間於Sony唱片公司所錄製的所有錄音,共八張CD。   費爾茲曼( Vladimir Feltsman, 1952 – )畢業於莫斯科音樂院,師從Yakov Fliyer。19歲獲得巴黎的隆-提伯鋼琴大賽的首獎。自1979 年申請離開移民海外,1987年終於獲准離開俄國,因而移居美國,曾先後於卡內基音樂廳以及林肯中心演出,同時也灌錄的多位俄國作曲家的作品,並引介多位當代俄國作曲家的作品。   抵達美國後,費爾茲曼便獲得Sony唱片公司的前身CBS公司的錄音合約,而且當時的美國總統雷根還邀請他到白宮演奏。兩個月後更登上卡內基音樂廳的舞台演出。時代雜誌表示:「這位音樂興趣廣泛的藝術家,在此演奏了梅湘的 《二十個對聖嬰耶穌的注視》,以及舒伯特及舒曼的通俗作品……費爾茲曼以較為輕鬆的方式處理舒伯特A大調鋼琴奏鳴曲D664的前兩個樂章……然後再以令人摒息而印象深刻的表現方式處理更加輝煌的快板終樂章……在梅湘的作品中,費爾茲曼展現了巨大的衝突聲響,並揭示作品技巧之恐怖難度。最後在舒曼的《交響練習曲》中,任何對費爾茲曼演奏之力度與藝術本能之質疑都已隨風而逝。」   在抵達美國之前,他在莫斯科錄製的蕭邦《前奏曲》,早已激發許多人對他的興趣,1986年CBS終於發行了這份錄音。洛杉磯時報表示:「費爾茲曼以真正的詩意征服這24首前奏曲。大膽與浪漫的火花,都為其顛峰的演奏增色。」其於卡內基音樂廳的首演錄音在1987年發行,接著又發行先前在俄國錄製的蕭邦作品,以及於1978年巴黎音樂會演奏的舒伯特作品。及至1989年他與CBS公司合約結束前,共發行8張專輯。   期間還發行一張現場演奏的李斯特作品,包含《B小調奏鳴曲》,以及一張拉赫曼尼諾夫的第一與第三號鋼琴協奏曲與《帕格尼尼主題狂想曲》錄音。留聲機雜誌評論:「費爾茲曼對鋼琴的控制令人欽佩。他是一位具有主宰能力的演奏者。」他也曾與羅斯托波維契所帶領的華盛頓國家交響樂團合作錄製柴可夫斯基的第三號鋼琴協奏曲,留聲機雜誌表示:「充滿豐富的音調與變化,展現最高品質的演奏,在必要的時候展現最適當的力道。……第一號鋼琴協奏曲以相對悠閒的方式處理,在外部樂章中沒有尖銳的嘶吼,中間的最急板與慢板樂章也沒有淺薄的技巧炫耀。第一樂章之後的裝飾奏(cadenza)十分的流暢與連貫,過渡到其後的尾奏(coda)則彷如夢幻逸品。錄音完美捕捉鋼琴與樂團之間的敏銳對話……是一份能夠獲益良多的演奏,第三號協奏曲的演繹非常出色。」   費爾茲曼為CBS完成的最後錄音包括了普羅可菲夫的 第一、二號鋼琴協奏曲,以及「羅密歐與茱麗葉」的10首選曲。樂評表示:「只有在聽過『羅密歐與茱麗葉的告別』細微的音色變化….或是第一號協奏曲清晰明亮的表現,才能意識到他不僅具備強大的手指,也擁有非常可觀的藝術性。……倫敦交響樂團在湯瑪斯(Michael Tilson Thomas)的領導下提供最佳的支援……第二號協奏曲中,再次展現費爾茲曼燦爛的鋼琴藝術以及指揮與樂團精良的演奏。」   費爾茲曼的演奏理智而清晰,不摻雜個人情緒,契合音樂應有的表現方式,帶領所有樂迷領受一場均衡完美的知性音樂之旅。這套專輯是其顛峰時期的演奏錄音全集,絕對值得擁有。 SET CONTENT DISC 1: Chopin: Préludes, Op. 28 DISC 2: Schubert: Fantasy in C Major, Op. 15, D. 760 “Wanderer”   […]

Elegantly • Chaos

“What’s there to find in a broken heart; if not assembled pieces of love for a pristine start. What’s there to see behind the curtain; only things that you don’t know for certain.” At the boarding gate at 48, my heart was muddied with uncertainty. I looked at my toes and blank in mind: “I […]
