François Rabbath’s Double Bass

François Rabbath’s Double Bass



FRANÇOIS RABBATH     Trombes d’eau

被譽為「低音大提琴界的帕格尼尼」,哈巴特(1931-)​在演奏和教學兩個領域均成就非凡。他不拘一格,在古典、爵士和世界音樂等界別都能如魚得水,堪​稱一代傳奇。哈巴特寫成於​ 2017 年的 Trombes d’eau (​水龍捲)是一首既優美又炫技的​低音大提琴獨奏曲。樂曲以一形象化的動機貫串,並由五組主題與變奏組成,每一組均聚焦一種演奏技巧。新晉低音大提琴手吳展滔畢業於美國伊士曼音樂學院及耶魯大學,他會為大家演奏這首低音大提琴的「新經典」,並會與陳慶恩教授對話,解構作品中每一個令人目眩的超技段落。

The legendary double bassist François Rabbath (1931-) ​enjoys an intense career both as a performer and as a pedagogue. He accepts no limits or labels, effortlessly crossing classical, jazz, and global traditions. ​His importance to the development of double bass playing can be compared with that of Paganini to the violin. Rabbath’s 2017 Trombes d’eau ​(literally ‘waterspouts’) is a beautiful work that reveals the versatility of the instrument. Framed by an impassioned motive, which also serves as a refrain, the core of the composition comprises five pairs of theme-and-variation, with each showcasing a dazzling performance technique. A graduate of the Eastman School of Music and the Yale School of Music, Kelvin Ng will perform this 6-minute work, and will be in dialogue with Professor Chan Hing-yan to explicate the immense virtuosity that the composition demands.
