Violin Concerto in D Major with StarWars encored…

     尽管今晚的天气异常糟糕,可还是造就了很多的头一次。头一次下这么大的雨去听音乐会;头一次去浦东的东方艺术中心听音乐会;头一次和女友一起去听音乐会;也是头一次去听伦敦交响乐团演奏的音乐会。
 
     不把Encore的曲目算在内,整个儿音乐会一共是101分47秒的样子。曲目是Lily挑的,虽然她不甚喜欢小提琴音准却略显刺耳的音色,仍然因为另一场有朗朗演出的是周一晚上,不甚方便的缘故,还是选择了今晚以德沃夏克的斯拉夫舞曲第十二首作为暖场,以贝多芬的D大调小提琴协奏曲为上半场,柏辽兹的幻想交响曲为高潮的这样的一场。其中1976年出生的指挥家Daniel Harding先生以及小提琴家Frank Peter Zimmermann激情四溢且配合得堪称天衣无缝的上半场给我留下了最为深刻的印象,一曲终了,掌声雷动,Bravo声不绝于耳。真的许久没有如此酣畅淋漓地听到这样的演出了。尤其是当Lily预言的为纪念伦敦交响院团为系列电影StarWars配乐30周年的纪念而特别献上的Encore曲目StarWars主题曲更是让我这个StarWars Fan感动不已。
 
     要是没有下雨的话,可能就是个完美的夜晚了吧。

Biography

Daniel Harding rocketed to the ranks of international star conductors at an astonishingly young age, conducting the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra before he was twenty-one years old.

His musical education started with recorder classes as a schoolboy, then violin lessons. He chose trumpet as his instrument. When he was fourteen Harding decided he wanted to be a conductor. The next year he had the idea of conducting Schoenberg‘s Pierrot Lunaire with his school orchestra.

Harding wrote to Simon Rattle, the conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Rattle, who himself had great success at an early age, says that when he saw the letter he thought Harding was "crazy."

Nevertheless, when he came to see for himself Rattle was impressed. He took Harding as a student when the latter was sixteen old. At the age of seventeen, Harding became Rattle‘s assistant. This resulted in Harding making his professional conducting debut in 1994 with the CBSO. This appearance won the Royal Philharmonic Society’s "Best Debut" Award for the 1993-1994 season.

Harding was hired at the age of eighteen by Hans Werner Henze to participate in the preparations for the Munich Biennial Festival. During the same year, Pierre Boulez accepted Harding into his master class.

At the age of nineteen he participated in a performance of Stockhausen‘s Gruppen, a work requiring three conductors, at the "Towards the Millennium" Festival. Rattle and John Carewe were the other conductors.

Claudio Abbado engaged Harding as assistant conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic for the 1995-1996 season. By now he was also receiving opportunities to guest conduct. Among his appearances was a Bartók and Sibelius program with violinist Sarah Chang at the Rotterdam Philharmonic.

During the September 1996 Berlin Festival, Harding received a quintessential lucky break when conductor Franz Welser-Möst fell ill and could not conduct. Without an orchestral rehearsal, he took over the podium in a program of Berlioz‘s Corsair Overture, Brahms‘ Double Concerto, and Dvorak‘s Symphony No. 8 in G major.

The critic of the Berlin Zeitung said that after a momentary sense of nervousness at the start of the concert, Harding led the overture with verve and authority. She praised Harding’s alert and sympathetic accompanying of the two soloists in the concerto, and his grasp and elucidation of an over-all line in the symphony while still attentive to the work’s details.

In 1996 Harding also became the youngest conductor ever to give a concert in the BBC Proms. In 1997 he became Principal Conductor of the Trondheim (Norway) Symphony Orchestra. He also was guest conductor of the Norrkoping Symphony Orchestra in Sweden and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. In Autumn 1999, he took up the position of Music Director of the Deutsche Kammerephilharmonie.

By then he had already guest conducted widely, appearing with the Santa Cecilia Orchestra of Rome, The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Houston Symphony, the London Philharmonic, and the London Symphony. He has also conducted opera, leading Janacek’s Jenufa (Welsh National Opera) and Mozart‘s Don Giovanni (with a touring company featuring the Mahler Chamber Orchstra). His Royal Opera House debut was scheduled to be in Britten‘s Turn of the Screw.

He had something of a dream come true when, in 1998, he returned to the BBC Proms to conduct the Scharoun Ensemble (whose members are drawn from the Berlin Philharmonic) in Pierrot Lunaire.

He has signed an exclusive contract with Virgin Records. His first release was music of Schoenberg and Britten, and with the Kammerphilharmonie has recorded a program of Beethoven overtures. ~ Joseph Stevenson, All Music Guide
