波蘭男高音 Polish tenor: Piotr Beczała

Posted on

我本來想寫一篇和波蘭歌手有關的文章,不過除了一些較早的幾個歌手(恰巧都是輕花腔女高音)Marcella Sembrich (1858-1935)、Bogna Sokorska (1927-2002)、Ada Sari (1886-1968,同是花腔,但曲目有跨到Santuzza)、之外,較近的花腔女低音Ewa Podleś(1952-)我沒有很喜歡、抒情花腔Elzbieta Szmytka(1956-)在《羅傑王》等一些Szymanowski錄音中表現很不錯但近期持續唱太重的曲目,其他的我所知就不多了。

本來聽到去年在Decca首發個人專輯「Gioia!」的抒情花腔Aleksandra Kursak時有想提到一筆,不過我覺得她還需要一點時間/功夫,雖然她在專輯中各個角色不會唱得全數同一副無表情的面孔、技巧也紮實。至於很多外國歌劇迷大讚帥氣性感的男中音Mariusz Kwiecień(1972-,右圖)表情 Read the rest of this entry

近期準備彙整 Updates

寫文章時純耳聽的。(撇開女主角,試試1’04″45開始Araiza美妙的〈夢之歌〉)

這幾天處在種無盡的忙亂中。時間很奇異地被各種無用的雜事或看不見的空虛吃掉。有好些人來電要(重複)見面,當然又讓整個行程變得很混亂。

行程亂不打緊, Read the rest of this entry

Sandomierz訂房

Posted on

上週在網路上提到城/鎮越小、訂房有時是越難訂,雖說看起來不少東歐國家會有些房間出租、或是學校宿舍夏季供短租等等是不會放在網路上,要到現場才 看得到。總之,Krakow看起來比Lublin簡單,Lublin的選擇也還算多,可是到了Sandomierz我就找不太到了;Google很久、也猜了些波蘭文,但沒多少收獲。

Stanisław Moniuszko (波蘭歌劇之父斯坦尼斯拉夫·莫紐什科)

(Gosh I feel embarrassed that I didn’t know (or perhaps only heard without paying much attention to) this name — isn’t this something I should know? :P)

感謝讀者Piotrek來函,我才知道第一次特別注意這個波蘭作曲家(May 5, 1819 in Ubiel, near Minsk – June 4, 1872 in Warsaw, Congress Poland)。查了一下Wikipedia資 料,有趣的是由於他在Vilnius (Lithuania) 任職過,該城還有他的銅像呢!我一定要記得去看看。他一生造訪St Petersburg 多次,受Mikhail Glinka及Alexander Dargomyzhsky欣賞,並且認識Mily Balakirev, Modest Mussorgsky and Alexander Serov,此外也教過César Cui(!)生涯發展的關鍵則是1848年造訪Warsaw(華沙),爾後結識Włodzimierz Wolski、最終並一同作出其代表作歌劇Halka。在Prague他見過Smetana,而且Halka在該地首演竟然還是Smetana準備(指揮?)的!!他也在Weimar和Liszt見過面。

(OK, I checked Amazon and noticed that I did see in some CD shops — mainly in Europe — the CPO full recording of Halka, so I’m not a complete failure.  And I also have listened to recordings of the Polish tenor Wieslaw Ochman, who is featured in this recording too! I think I did Read the rest of this entry

Serbia/Macedonia/BiH visas截至2012/3/30整理

Sometimes visa application matters force me to want to use four-letter words.  Just sometimes.

(這篇請念出來,每念到一個句號酌加一至三個_字。)

我實在覺得很煩了。整理一下。

Hooray: Two More Saviors

本週請了一天半病假,其實我是蠻內疚的,因為都要離開(或暫別)了,我實在想看起來活力四射、把一堆東西早早做完的。不過事實證明昨天請假是對的,因為昨天我再次睡了大半天,而且即使晚上坐捷運去看牙時,捷運的冷氣還是有點惹人煩心。事實證明,感冒其實可以好得很快,感冒時甚至很可能背著背包看風景擠排隊入場照相奔跑走行程,可是感冒的英雄碰到冷氣馬上變狗熊。這簡直比抓隻貓嚇埃及木乃伊還來得有效。

And this morning, looking at all the wonderful, wonderful, wonderful (yes, alas, wonderful. Didn’t I just say “wonderful” three times?) sunlight through the bus window, I thought I should write a letter, which shall have the following beginning:

Dear Ariel,

Please don’t swim to Taiwan, Read the rest of this entry
