今天是埃萨-佩卡•萨洛宁在洛杉矶爱乐乐团的告别演出，这场演出的英文正式称呼是Final Concert，也有称为Last Concert的。著名芬兰指挥萨洛宁自一九九二年来到洛杉矶任音乐总监至今已十七年，当年的风采还记忆犹新，现在萨洛宁尽管还正壮年，但为了有更多的时间投入作曲而决定卸下总监之职实属难得。
在两年前消息传出时人们都很意外，同时更吃惊洛杉矶爱乐乐团音乐总监的继任尽是一位当时仅二十六岁的委内瑞拉 西蒙•玻利瓦尔青年管弦乐团年轻指挥家杜达梅尔Gustavo Dudamel。杜达梅尔目前已出了四张CD。
LOS ANGELES, April 9, 2007 -- Esa-Pekka Salonen announced today that he will end his tenure as the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Music Director at the conclusion of the 2008/09 season, at which time he will have been Music Director for 17 seasons. As has been his long-time declared wish, his decision will enable him to dedicate himself more fully to composing.
Simultaneously, the Board of Directors, President Deborah Borda, and Esa-Pekka Salonen announced the new Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic will be 26-year-old, Venezuelan conductor GUSTAVO DUDAMEL. His five-year contract will start with the 2009/10 season (actual start date is September 21, 2009), and he will be Music Director Designate during the 2008/09 season. In his first season as Music Director (2009/10), he will conduct 10 weeks, plus summer concerts at the Hollywood Bowl; and in years two through five, he will increase to 14 weeks, plus Hollywood Bowl concerts and touring.
Dudamel is the Music Director of the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela, and Principal Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony in Sweden. His symphonic guest engagements take him to the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, London Philharmonia, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, among others, with operatic engagements at La Scala and Berlin Staastsoper. His celebrated United States debut was with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl in 2005, and he returned to conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall in January 2007. Dudamel next appears in Los Angeles on November 1 and 2, 2007, with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra and returns to conduct the Los Angeles Philharmonic from March 28 through April 6, 2008. Gustavo Dudamel is an exclusive recording artist with Deutsche Grammophon.
Of the appointment Dudamel said, "Almost two years ago, I made my United States debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and from the first moment I stepped onto the stage, I felt a special connection and deep feeling from the players. They are wonderful. I am very honored to be chosen to succeed the great conductor/composer Esa-Pekka Salonen, who has been so warm to me and has given me so much support. Family is very important to me. Now my musical family includes Los Angeles, along with Venezuela and Gothenburg, and these three will be my musical homes and the focus of my musical activity. Playing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic in the magnificent Walt Disney Concert Hall is a great privilege and I look forward to many happy years together."
Esa-Pekka Salonen stated, "Almost two decades ago, the Los Angeles Philharmonic took a chance on a young fellow from Finland who was at the beginning of his conducting career. Over the ensuing years we have all grown together. It is with love and pride that I regard all we have accomplished. As hard as this is, I know now that the right moment has come for me to step down as Music Director at the end of the 2008/09 season. It will come as no surprise to anyone that I wish to dedicate myself more fully to composing. I could not, indeed would not have made this decision unless I was confident that everything was in just the right place and balance. The LA PHIL is widely regarded as one of the leading symphony orchestras in the world. We have never been stronger. And now, the right successor has been found. Gustavo Dudamel's remarkable talent, intelligence and energy are the absolute right match for the orchestra and Los Angeles. While I intend to continue my relationship with the LA PHIL, I am peaceful and joyous about the artist to whom we will pass the baton. There could not be a more forward looking choice."
Deborah Borda commented, "Esa-Pekka Salonen has built an orchestra of the 21st century - vital, of our time and in forward motion. His profound musical vision and legacy reaches far beyond Los Angeles. Continuing in our own inimitable style, we now look to the future. From the moment Gustavo Dudamel stepped on our podium there was an immediate and palpable connection and chemistry with the LA PHIL musicians. With our musicians and Esa-Pekka's support, the way forward became clear. I cannot imagine a person better suited than Gustavo Dudamel to carry on our important work: reaching out to new audiences, championing music of our time and dreaming of what can be. This is a match for our orchestra, for our city and for music making."
Board Chairman Jerrold Eberhardt added, "Our board and musicians immediately sensed that something very special was happening when Gustavo Dudamel conducted in Los Angeles. This was echoed by the audience's overwhelming reaction at every concert. Our great team of Deborah Borda and Esa-Pekka Salonen has guided us through a seamless transition. We continue to celebrate Esa-Pekka's remarkable relationship with us, as we all joyously await the arrival of Gustavo Dudamel."
Chairman of the orchestra's Artistic Liaison Committee, Christopher Hanulik, said, "We, as an orchestra, are fortunate to have the privilege of working with such a dynamic and exceptional leader as Esa-Pekka Salonen. As we move forward, we enthusiastically welcome Gustavo Dudamel. In working with him, two things struck the orchestra right away. First, he is obviously a very dynamic musical personality. The second thing is the depth of knowledge he conveyed, even at his relatively young age. When a conductor can stand up in front of this orchestra without having to articulate verbally, that's so exciting from our standpoint."
今天在狄斯耐音乐厅萨洛宁的最后演出之前，洛杉矶爱乐乐团董事长David Bohnett 和主席及执行长Deborah Borda 上台宣布授予这位洛杉矶爱乐乐团任期最长的音乐总监Esa-Pekka Salonen 获得指挥荣誉奖。这是洛杉矶爱乐乐团九十年来的第一次。
Chairman of the Board of the Los Angeles Philharmonic David Bohnett and President and Chief Executive Officer Deborah Borda today announced from the stage of Walt Disney Concert Hall the appointment of Esa-Pekka Salonen as Conductor Laureate, honoring the longest serving Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic . This is a first in the 90 year history of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
The announcement came just prior to Esa-Pekka Salonen’s last concert as Music Director – an all Stravinsky program – marking his 973rd concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Upon hearing the news, Salonen said, “When the Board asked me if I would accept the position of Conductor Laureate I was overwhelmed. This organization has been at the very center of my musical life for 17 years. I am very proud and honored that they would even consider me for such a prestigious title and it gives me great pleasure to accept. The Los Angeles Philharmonic will always play an important role in my life and this is a symbol of our continuing relationship.” This is the first time that Esa-Pekka Salonen has been recognized in such a way.
Deborah Borda commented, “Salonen’s tenure has been extraordinary not only for its longevity but for its legacy. Esa-Pekka has literally shaped the orchestra into the ensemble we know today. As acknowledgement of our profound gratitude to him and to signify our continuing connection, the Board of Directors today appoints Esa-Pekka Salonen as Conductor Laureate of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.”
As Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Esa-Pekka Salonen took a bold visionary approach that has established the Philharmonic as one of the world’s most renowned and accomplished orchestras. His stunning tenure included the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall, historic collaborations with the world’s greatest artists, celebrated tours of America, Europe and Asia, and a passionate advocacy for new music and new audiences. He will return as Conductor Laureate in the 2010/11 season.
Esa-Pekka Salonen, who was born in Helsinki in 1958, studied at the Sibelius Academy in Finland. In 1979, he made his conducting debut with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and he made his American debut conducting the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 1984. He was recently appointed Principal Conductor of London's Philharmonia beginning this season, his last with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In addition, Salonen has won acclaim for his work as a composer. Among the many highlights of Salonen's career with the Los Angeles Philharmonic have been world premieres of works by composers John Adams, Franco Donatoni, Anders Hillborg, William Kraft, Magnus Lindberg, Witold Lutoslawski, Bernard Rands, Kaija Saariaho, Rodion Shchedrin, Steven Stucky, Tan Dun, and Augusta Read Thomas, as well as his own works. He has led critically acclaimed festivals of music by Ligeti, Schoenberg, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Berlioz, and Beethoven, and the Tristan Project. He and the Philharmonic have toured extensively since 1992. In October of 2003, Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic opened Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry. In March 2003, Salonen signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon. The following year, DG released a disc devoted to his recent orchestral works, featuring Foreign Bodies, Insomnia, and Wing on Wing. In January 2006, Salonen and the Philharmonic recorded their first CD together for DG, the first live recording at Walt Disney Concert Hall. (Salonen and the Philharmonic also have four live concert recordings available for download on iTunes from DG Concerts.) Before signing with DG, Salonen recorded regularly with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for Sony Classical. Salonen is the recipient of several major awards including the Siena Prize from the Accademia Chigiana in 1993, the first conductor ever to receive the prize; the Royal Philharmonic Society's Opera Award in 1995; and their Conductor Award in 1997. In 1998, he was awarded the rank of Officier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government. Musical America named him 2006 Musician of the Year.
The Los Angeles Philharmonic Association presents the finest in orchestral and chamber music, recitals, new music, jazz, world music and holiday concerts at two of the most remarkable places anywhere to experience music — Walt Disney Concert Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. In addition to a 30-week winter subscription season at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the LA Phil presents a 12-week summer festival at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, summer home of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and home of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. In fulfilling its commitment to the community, the Association’s involvement with Los Angeles extends to educational programs, community concerts and children's programming, ever seeking to provide inspiration and delight to the broadest possible audience. Gustavo Dudamel begins his tenure as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic in fall 2009.

可惜现场广播续录的一张CD在Finalizing 时发生故障，以致斯特拉文斯基俄狄浦斯王的结尾约十几分钟和一部分幕间广播无法与各位分享。如有很想听这个曲子的乐友，可购买萨洛宁一九九二年与Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra 合作的录音，Sony Classical 公司出版的CD，唱片编号48057。
我一贯抵制及反对盗版或一些变相盗版 (譬如所谓的正版引进版等等) 发布在VC这块已经不那么干净的“净土”上，也呼吁乐友们尽量在转发资源时不要贴上盗版的唱片封面。为此，本人极为重视乐友们对我做这类广播录音的意见，我将根据乐友们的反应作出是否再发布此类录音的决定。
