98发烧天碟收录:「花木兰」欧洲主题曲REFLECTION舞曲界重量级名人YOUTH制作DEVIL’S TRILL加收全新詮释韦瓦第之四季小提琴协奏曲

九0年代突破旧世代传统的小提琴超级玩家陈美,出生於新加坡,四岁时举家移居伦敦,拥有上帝赐予的神奇魔弦,以跨文化、超类型的肢体语言与演奏风格异军突起。

十岁时即跟管弦乐团协奏,12岁发行史上最年轻乐手录制的柴可夫斯基和贝多芬小提琴协奏曲,连莫札特和孟德尔也自嘆弗如!

1995年发行首张舞曲融合专辑「小提琴超级玩家」,并且以首支单曲 "触技曲与赋格"盘据英国排行榜达两个月之久。接著,「POP」超白金专辑发行后,更是在Billboard排行榜前20名居高不下长达一年半!陈美的现场演奏也曾因为观眾的安可声不断,使得Rod Stewart苦等出场;现场转播延长使得电视新闻为之延后!两年来200多场演奏会,获奖无数的陈美,儼然已经成为新一代横跨古典/流行的超级巨星。

继以另类特别的小提琴风格跨越古典、摇滚及流行音乐掀起乐坛每炫风暴的创作大碟「无限风暴STORM」后,陈美终於带来她的新专辑「四季迷情+花木兰The Original Four Seasons And The Devil’s Trill’s Sonata」,

其中 "Reflection"这首电影「花木兰」欧洲主题曲,乃是因为她精湛的琴艺及其华裔的身份,而被迪士尼选为「花木兰」欧洲地区代言人并为其演奏主题曲;这张专辑中陈美并重新詮释了韦瓦第 "四季"小提琴协奏曲及义大利小提琴家塔替尼的 "魔鬼的颤音奏鸣曲The Devil’s Trill Sonata"。

此外请来舞曲界重量级名人Youth(The Verve、Orb、Crowde House、James),改编自 "魔鬼的颤音奏鸣曲"的Techno舞曲 "Devil’s Trill",就像是Storm的姊妹作。

不管是流行曲目或古典曲目,相信陈美都能给妳不同以往的特殊感受。

The Four Seasons must rank as one of classical music's most popular suites and Vanessa-Mae's rendition bursts into life with the immediately familiar "Spring: Allegro I", the playful opening riff complimenting the fluttering strings nicely, indicating a new, joyful beginning. After a slowing of tempo in "Spring: Largo e Piannissimo Sempra", perhaps signifying the onset of February and the mid-season frigidity, the second (albeit less) recognizable piece begins, "Spring: Allegro II". It's not as exciting as the first half, but it's still welcome after the frosty midsection.

Things begin to heat up (ahem) in the transition to summer, which begins with "Summer: Allegro Non Molto", where you can hear the layers of strings begin to thicken as the creatures come out to frolic after their hibernation slumber. "Summer: Adagio" follows, familiar by its sudden flurry of deep notes. All of this, however, is still just a warm up (ditto) for "Summer: Allegro", which is the most vibrant piece of the entire set. Fans of Vanessa-Mae will also recognise this track as the basis for the title track of Storm, a cover which updates the original considerably.

Autumn begins with a stately melody (which for some reason always brings to mind images from the video of Girls Aloud's "Can't Speak French") which remains thankfully perky, probably still warm from the summer months. The same cannot be said for "Autumn Adagio", which takes on a more sombre tone with the realisation that winter is coming and harsh times are ahead. Luckily, it's a short track that glides past without ever really registering. "Autumn: La Caccia" boasts another familiar motif, with the strings circulating around quite happily, the previous solemnity now but a mere memory.

The onset of winter is a subtle one, as the opening of "Winter: Allegro Non Molto" is comparatively quiet, but do not be deceived, as the endsection delivers a frigid jolt that Bond fans will recognise as the setting for "Viva!" (short for composer Vivaldi, very clever!). "Winter: Largo" is the animals' tentative first steps after the icy blast whereas "Winter: Allegro" is the reprise of the previous snowstorm, effectively ending the set. Particularly effective throughout the Winter pieces is Vanessa's skilful manipulation of the violin's strings, giving the impression that the animals are shivering along with them.

However, this is not just a rendition of The Four Seasons; The Devil's Trill suppends the collection. For all its supposed technical demands, it starts off fairly nondescriptly with "Devil's Trill: Larghetto, Ma Non Troppo", but grows in vituosity in "Devil's Trill: Allegro Moderato", reaching a quite wonderful display by the end. "Devil's Trill: Allegro Assai" begins more slowly with a backing organ, but then quickens the pace to a midtempo jaunt. From here, it oscillates back and forth between slow and medium, but never reaching the highs of its predecessor.

Fans of Vanessa-Mae's more modern work will be pleased to hear that her edit of "Devil's Trill" has been included at the end, blending elements of "Allegro Assai" with slick beats and then finishing with the concluding flourish from "Allegro Moderato" and a computer-generated laugh. As a bonus, we also get "Reflection", a contemporary oriental offering that appeared on the soundtrack of Disney's Mulan film. It's a tad schizophrenic, changing speed rapidly halfway through, and would have sat more neatly on the end of The Classical Album, Volume 2: China Girl (and, to be fair, Mulan was released a year later than China Girl, meaning the presence of "Reflections" on China Girl would be a retroactive miracle), but when the quality's this good, I'm not complaining.

Now, as you will no doubt have gathered through the reading of this review, I'm no classical music buff (contrary to my stage name) and haven't the faintest idea about the technical ins-and-outs of its production. I consequently have no idea how Vanessa's rendition stacks up in comparison with all of the other ones out there (and there are many). In a way, I don't really care, for such concerns are immaterial for me. I have no need to listen to 10 different versions of The Four Seasons or The Devil's Trill to say that this one is solidly performed and that, as a casual Classical connoisseur, this one is enough for me.

Do not be fooled by the title The Original Four Seasons - especially if you have no idea what the album is about. By 'original', what Vanessa-Mae really means is that she has arranged and played Vivaldi's Four Seasons according to the way she thinks they should be played. Hence, this is not your grandmother's Four Seasons - although this could be a good thing.

Engaging Laureate, the world's only chamber ensemble to consist of only award-winning players, Vanessa-Mae has a reason to experiment with the arrangements of the Four Seasons to suit her own taste. All in all, these arrangements can be fun if you listen to them with an open mind. Violin harmonics echoing bird whistles, additions in ornamentations here and there... The idea is basically to enhance the whole concept of programme music as Vivaldi intended them to be.

Does it work? Yes, maybe, sometimes. There are places where Vanessa's versions don't work, simply because they are completely missing the point. For a good comparison, I advise you to listen to Anne-Sophie Mutter's recording of the Four Seasons (1999). The main problem I have with Vanessa-Mae's playing is that it lacks depth and sometimes what comes out turns out to be tasteless. Mutter's version, however, is warm and rich, encompassing the elegant qualities of Baroque music.

In fact, the true gem of the album should be Vanessa's "The Devil's Trill Sonata". Unlike the Four Seasons, "The Devil's Trill" is less well-known (ironically enough, it was popularised by Vanessa herself) mainly because it is much more technically demanding. Now, I'm not going to comment on her technique because as we all know, it's there. Vanessa's playing is very straightforward, something that makes the recording less taxing and frustrating to listen to. Now, back to Mutter's recording of the Four Seasons, which also includes the Devil's Trill in it. Unlike Mutter, Vanessa-Mae chooses not to overindulge in her vibrato and her emotions, which tends to make the piece lose its vibrancy and colour.

I thoroughly enjoyed Vanessa-Mae's reworking of the third movement of the Devil's Trill (titled "The Devil's Trill") for a Siemens ad, as well as the instrumental version of "Reflection", which was used in the end credits of the Disney picture Mulan when it was shown in Europe.


Review

The main question here is what they mean by "original," since this performance is based on the usual version of Vivaldi's famous set of concertos. What is different is that this is not Vivaldi's original, but an arrangement, though not one that departs much from what one would normally hear. Toying with these pieces is commonplace in modern baroque practice, since it is believed Vivaldi expected his soloists to embellish their lines. Nigel Kennedy's popular recording took quite a few liberties; Vanessa-Mae is perhaps a little more ostentatious than most when it comes to ornamentation, and the improvising extends to the ensemble at large, but it's still pretty much Vivaldi's 'Four Seasons' played by a talented extrovert with a somewhat romantic attitude. Much the same could be said of the ensemble arrangement of Tartini's 'Devil's Trill' Sonata, but the dance-beat arrangement of material from that work is not to be missed, perhaps the highlight of the disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Vivaldi CD! (And Vanessa Mae's best ever CD!) May 4, 2000
By Julianne
Format:Audio CD
I love Vanessa Mae's music. Ever since her debut album of Violin Player, I have been a fan. She goes against the flow, is innovative and obviously puts her heart and soul into her music. At first, I thought another Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" would have been redundant and repetitve. Against my will, I bought this CD because of my loyalty to this violin player. I expected to hear another rendition of the DeBeers diamond commercials and even more airline commercial music. But Vanessa Mae's interpretation of "Four Seasons" has been refreshing and thoroughly enjoyable. Her talent as a musician shines in this CD! The Summer I, Allegro Non Molto is just amazing! I cannot even describe to you the energy and the feeling that comes across! And my absolute favorite is Winter III, Allegro. I heard it late one night in my car and I was just floored at the intensity of this piece. Her playing is so... dynamic, rapturous and dramatic, this piece took me to another place. I almost wanted to pull over to the side to enjoy the rest of the music.
Her very last song on the CD, Reflection... is just so. True to to her Asian roots, she has added a touch of Asia to this piece. Perhaps it's a mini follow up to ther "China Girl" album. This piece is also remiscently cinematic, I felt that it sounded like something at the end of a movie where the heroine triumphantly overcomes all her obstacles to find (at last) happiness. Perhaps Vanessa Mae felt the same way, maybe even of her own life. This piece is truly beautiful and convicts the heart. I felt that maybe I was getting a glimpse of this artist's soul. And if so, I'm thankful that she has shared it with the rest of the world. It's just beyond words.
The rest of the CD is just as enjoyable. The Devil's Trill Sonata is fun and exciting, as well as enlightening. I never thought such sounds could come out of a mere violin. Vanessa Mae is truly amazing.

滑雪与母决裂 小提琴家陈美出征冬奥
TVBS作者: 张雅惠 | TVBS – 2014年2月17日 下午1:04

>知名华裔小提琴家,中泰混血儿陈美,曾经随著专辑发行来台举办演奏会,也登上金马舞台过,不过2013年,她却为了钟爱的滑雪运动,毅然决然放弃音乐事业1年,到瑞士进行滑雪特训,终於成功代表泰国出征冬季奥运的滑雪障碍赛,但也跟培养她成为演奏家的母亲成为陌生人,日前她在接受英国媒体专访时透露这件事情,让外界都很惊讶。>>

曾经来台湾表演的华裔小提琴家,中泰混血儿陈美,拥有超凡音乐天分,13岁更成为史上现场演奏柴可夫斯基和贝多芬协奏曲的最年轻小提琴手,曾在金马奖舞台上演出过,一段时间不见,现在她居然出现冬季奥运的赛场上。

华裔小提琴家陈美:「我是陈美,冬季奥运滑雪障碍赛泰国代表。」

在冬季奥运中,担任品牌形象大使,陈美在2013年为了滑雪,毅然决然放弃音乐事业1年,到瑞士进行特训,终於成功代表泰国出征滑雪障碍赛,但换来的代价,却是跟母亲决裂。

原来陈美从4岁开始,就学滑雪,但妈妈怕她手受伤,不能演奏,禁止她进行滑雪运动,更说只有在陈美演奏小提琴时,才是她的女儿,从小就被全天候监控的陈美,为了重拾正常母女关係,将经纪人母亲炒魷鱼,两人从此成为陌生人,日前接受英国媒体专访,透露这件事情,让外界都很惊讶。

不过陈美说,只是想要完成自己的梦想,如今自己在滑雪上的努力得到认同,也期盼母女俩的关係能早日破冰。


新浪体育讯 她身材娇小,却有着吸引全场注目的魔力;

  她代表泰国,却成为冬季奥运会的参赛者;

  她是小提琴手,却玩起了刺激的空中滑雪……

  陈美。让人太过好奇,跟新浪体育一起解谜。

  新浪体育:有那么多冬季项目,缘何会对高山滑雪的超级大回转情有独钟?

  陈美:老实说我也不知道为什么,小时候家人让我尝试过钢琴、小提琴、芭蕾、骑马、滑雪……除了小提琴之外,只有滑雪吸引了我。我学琴和滑雪差不多都是在四岁,我的童年时被小动物、小提琴和滑雪填满了。

  新浪体育:演奏和体育你更喜欢哪个?

  陈美:当然我更多的天赋是体现在小提琴上。我很幸运,“有这个机会能滑雪现在”(这句特别是用中文说的),能够参加奥运会真让人兴奋不已,我留意到中国也有女选手参加这个项目,不过暂时还没有碰过面,希望过几天有机会。我跟中国还是很有渊源的,你叫我瓦纳萨、陈美都可以。在我八岁时,曾经在北京的中央音乐学院学习过6个月。中国跟伦敦是完全不一样的文化,在那里我留下了很美好的回忆。

  新浪体育:小提琴演奏家的身份会对你的滑雪比赛带来帮助吗?

  陈美:它会让我更好地面对压力。小提琴需要的不是速度,而是控制,需要用心去演奏,更多的时候要忘记“大脑”。当然练习的时候需要用到你的理性,但是演出时就让音符随心流淌,它不是比赛,没有对错,没有裁判坐在舞台下。这是两者最大的不同,但如果没有从小学琴的经历,我肯定不能像现在这样很好地面对比赛带来的压力和竞争。滑雪和演出、专辑录制一样都有“最后期限”,如果你没有足够的时间再做准备了,那么从小训练带来的经验这时会发挥作用。

  新浪体育:难道就不担心这么危险的运动可能会伤到拉琴的手,还有你漂亮的脸蛋吗?

  陈美:谢谢,其实我已经发生过好几次意外了,像是门牙、左边的肋骨、右手食指这里的骨头(手指和手掌的连接处)它的形状都变得有点滑稽了,左手也骨折过,但不是因为滑雪,而是五年前的一次驾车事故。很多人都问我为何要如此冒险?但生活中风险是无处不在的,像骑马、开车……这些也是啊,你要做的是顺从自己的内心。

  其实那次手骨折,对我来说反倒是松了一口气。虽然需要数周的时间来恢复,但后来发现就算受过伤也不会影响到我的的演奏水平。那次的经验很难忘,我记得打着石膏时,朋友们还让我在上面签名留作纪念。生命就像是一出历险记,人并不能完全掌控命运,倒不如放轻松一点。

  新浪体育:我们知道早在2002年盐湖城冬奥会时你就有计划要参赛,但因为国籍的问题错过了。12年过去了,为何如此执着,奥林匹克梦想对你来说意味着什么?

  陈美:实际上我也算是参与过盐湖城奥运会了,因为我是开幕式上的表演嘉宾;这一次我来到索契,是真正以运动员的身份。我从没有想过还能再参加奥运会,直到两年前,我意识到如果有机会为什么不试试呢?我热爱滑雪,也看到有不少选手不是专业运动员出身,他的工作可能是医生或者别的,所以只要我下定决心去打积分赛说不定真能如愿。

  新浪体育:具体是从什么时候开始进入到索契冬奥会的备战?

  陈美:半年前开始的,然后两个月前疯狂参赛,哈哈,直到最后一刻才惊险拿到资格。也有人问过,那你为什么不再提早几年备战,这样体能、速度都会更好,但之前我的身体和精神状态并没有完全做好准备,现在是时候了。人不能老想着把所有事情都放在年轻的时候去做,那等到老一点时做什么好呢?

  新浪体育:真正来到索契后,奥运会跟你想象的一样吗?

  陈美:昨天的开幕式上,我跟俄罗斯代表团坐在一起,听着熟悉的柴可夫斯基的《天鹅湖》。这一次我不再是观众、或者是表演嘉宾,这将是我的第一届冬奥会,想到这里我已忍不住落泪。来到这里后,更加感受到奥运会是完全不同的“大家庭”,我每天都睁大眼睛在吸收各种讯息。也许是因为我太没有竞争力了(大笑),其他选手对我都非常友好,他们有的十六七岁,只有我一半的年纪。只是我的宠物狗吉娃娃不允许带进运动员村,我已经开始疯狂想它了,你能理解吗?哈哈连我男朋友都不能理解这一点。

  新浪体育:对于这次的跨界“演出”,你给自己设立的目标是?毕竟今年35岁了,索契会是你的最后一届冬奥会吗?

  陈美:以往演奏时,我代表的只是我个人,这一次我代表的是生父的国家。不管怎么样我已经很为自己骄傲。我记得有个选手40岁时还在参赛,所以未来……我真的不知道,因为我并不为了追求站上领奖台。也许吧,也许在韩国(平昌冬奥会)会再见到我。

  新浪体育:最后一个问题,如果挑一首古典乐作为你比赛时的背景音乐,会选择哪一首?

  陈美:这是一个好问题,让我想想……我曾经出过一张专辑就叫做“Storm”(《无限风暴》),嗯,从这里面挑一首节奏快的曲子应该会很适合。
