专辑介绍:

这张“Urthora”是Stoa发表于93年的处女专辑,是新古典主义歌特的奠基之作。高贵典雅,美伦美奂。本曲Autumn充份体现了Stoa无与伦比的键琴技巧,秋水长天,尽在一曲之中。

这就是 neo-classical 巴洛克式的密集繁复而优美的音乐,轻柔而宿命的女高音。有个陌生人说STOA使他联想到尼采的诗。……真想化作无形无重的物质,住在这音乐里,不再有思想,不再有欲望……

STOA 成立于1992年,并于同年跟 HYPERIUM 唱片公司签约。STOA 这个名字源自于斯多葛哲学(stoicism,古代哲学中最重要的哲学流派之一)。

Conny Levrow, STOA 的前女高音主唱, 接受过9年的小提琴训练、12年的声乐训练。她学得非常出色,并荣誉毕业。Conny 参加过好几个合唱团和交响乐团。同时她还是一名录音室歌唱家,许多古典音乐的录音室专辑里都有她的声音。目前 Conny 已离开乐队,由 Antje Buchheiser 取而代之。乐队还新添了一位出色的大提琴手 Christiane Fischer。

Olaf Parusel 曾经是世界上最古老的男童合唱团之一(Stadtsingechor Halle合唱团,有着880年历史)的成员。他参加过钢琴和声乐课程,目前正进修音乐科学和哲学。

STOA 乐队录制的第一首歌,发行于1992年秋天的《From Hypnotic to Hypersonic》合辑当中。从此 STOA 的音乐旅程起航了。他们的首张CD专辑《Urthona》发行于1993年4月,获得了很好的评价——不单止在德国,该专辑在墨西哥音乐排行榜达第59位,在墨西哥“New-Age”排行榜达第一位。该专辑中的音乐在香港和希腊被用作广告背景音乐(ECO石油公司)。

1994年11月,第二张专辑《Porta VIII》发行,也获得了巨大成功。1996年 STOA 乐队(跟 CHANDEEN 乐队一起)出席了一些现场演出。1997年春乐队跟大型合唱团和交响乐团同台演出。

相隔八年之后,德国新古典组合Stoa终于在2002年发表了他们的第三张专辑"Zal",做为蓄势多年后的惊世出击,"Zal"先是在四月份由墨西哥厂牌SAMADHI做特别发行,而正式版将由德国唱片公司Alice in...在七月向全球推出。八年的时间对于一次等待来说,绝对是过于悠长了,而Stoa在段时间中也经历了不小的变动:96年次女主音/大提琴手的Christiane Fischer加入;97年Stoa离开Hyperium公司;女主唱Conny Levrow为了继续她的古典音乐生涯而离队;同年新任主音Antje Buchheiser继位;2001年又有新的主音歌手Mandy Bernhardt加入。当面对"Zal"这张唱片时,这些远离我们的变化就更加具像起来。

关于Zal这个题目,有可能出自波兰语“Zal”(Z上面有一个点),意为“无法抚平的悲哀”,与这张专辑的气氛是符合的。而且,Zal是肖邦的口头禅,这大概也是STOA像古典乐大师致敬的一个方式。


Stoa have been making critically acclaimed neo-classical / ethereal music since 1991. Not an especially prolific band, with only three full releases under their belts in those eleven plus years, it is apparent that principal songwriter Olaf Parusel takes his time composing, arranging and envisioning his stirring music. A lot of artists apply the term ‘neo-classical’ to describe their music, but few truly seem to base their music on classical theory. And even fewer produce convincing synthetic ethereal music. Olaf’s arrangements are rich and impressive in their authenticity – much of this album sounds as if it was actually performed by a flesh and blood orchestra. The presence of cellist Christiane Fischer provides an even more organic touch, and the soft soprano vocals of Mandy Bernhardt are beautiful and powerful all the same. I was getting pretty worn out on the whole ‘angelic’ female vocal thing there for a while, but Ms. Bernhardt’s vocals are an aural treat and her delivery and tone has more in common with Dawn Upshaw or Rene Fleming than with the latest amateur ‘Goth’ siren.

Included here are ten sublime original compositions, and one venerable cover of an early and wonderfully moving Black Tape For A Blue Girl song entitled “I Wish You Could Smile.” The overall feeling of the CD is one of a tender melancholy and quiet reflection. Predominantly centered on buoyant orchestral strings, passages of reverberated pianos and soft mournful oboes, Zal” unfolds like a single, coherent piece of symphonic music, with various movements, interludes, and refrains. Though an intimate release, it is still quite interesting and holds the listener spellbound, rather than lull them into a kind of soporific ennui. This release is comprised of fascinating and captivating music, mellow but intriguing all the same. I found myself listening intently to the flow of the music, wondering what instrument will be introduced next, what metamorphosis the melodies will take, and in what manner the layers of melody will merge together. Stoa’s music is transcendent and spirits the listener to a gray world of nostalgic dream and promising reverie, beautiful but not overly so. Sweet yet tempered with a darker undercurrent of the ominous. This is an extraordinarily good release for fans of ethereal, cinematic, or symphonic music, and I highly recommend it to readers with more refined tastes for classical and the like. The female vocals are truly heavenly, the cello passages utterly gorgeous, and the arrangements are perfectly fashioned and well designed. But above all, this CD succeeds in stirring the heart, and provides the perfect respite and trancelike escape for the listener. Sublime and profoundly affective, you won’t regret adding this CD to your collection. --- Matthew Heilman
