A Mezzo Moment


說到英文藝術歌曲,往往會聯想到約翰·道蘭(John Dowland)的《別再哭泣,悲傷之泉》,優美的旋律帶著絲絲哀愁,別具風格。今個樂季的《薄暮樂敍》,陳慶恩教授請來香港炙手可熱的女中音張吟晶,帶領大家從這首文藝復興名曲出發,跨越四百年時空,細說道蘭、葛尼(Ivor Gurney)、華洛克(Peter Warlock),以至當代美國作曲家海濟(Jake Heggie)如何以音樂將文字所表達的意念發揮得淋漓盡致。張吟晶將由鋼琴家陳子欣伴奏,齊來聽她詮釋及娓娓道來這些聲樂精品!

“Weep you no more, sad fountains” is a widely beloved song by the 16th century composer-lutenist John Dowland. Departing from this beautiful work, Hong Kong’s most sought-after mezzo-soprano Samantha Chong invites the audience to embark on a 400-year journey of English songs: from Renaissance’s Dowland, through Ivor Gurney and Peter Warlock, to modern-day highly versatile American composer Jake Heggie. Hosted by Prof. Chan Hing-yan and accompanied by pianist Ingrid Chan, join Samantha in this lecture-demonstration and discover the beauty of these vocal gems!
