... This was one of the most energetic performances of any work I have seen in many years! There were no half-measures at any time; it was full tilt from start to finish by all. It was especially interesting to see how involved the chorus was in performance. It was obvious they were giving it their all, with evident pride, as if to say “This is our music, and we are proud to share it with you.” ...

 

Baritone Chai-Lun Yueh was confident and projected with both strength and dignity...

 

...The net result was, to this listener, a rare occasion where the quality of the performance exceeded the actual intrinsic value of the work itself. ...

訪談的主要內容:

  今年是世界反法西斯戰爭暨中國抗日戰爭勝利70周年,70年前中華民族經過八年艱苦卓絕的抗戰,取得了抗日戰爭的偉大勝利。主持人及兩位藝術家都對在中國慶祝農歷年羊年這一時刻,選擇黃河大合唱在卡內基音樂唱響,非常的激動和期待。易傑指揮和岳彩輪歌唱家都談到了《黃河大合唱》在世界著名的頂級音樂廳首唱,有著更深遠、更重大的意義。他們都認為美國著名的音樂機構在今年的這一特殊的年份,世界反法西斯戰爭暨中國抗日戰爭勝利70周年,也是聯合國成立70周年的時刻,在最好的地點、與最好的藝術家一起演唱《黃河大合唱》,非常切合,能把中華民族和文化的偉大氣魄,用《黃河大合唱》展現給全世界的觀眾。

  兩位藝術家對音樂藝術在維護世界和平所發揮的重要作用,都表示這是語言所無法表達的。易傑指揮說,音樂是聽覺藝術,它給人的鼓舞是巨大的,黃河大合唱這部經典的作品傳唱這麽久,還在人們的心裏,你的生活是怎麽變化,無論在什麽地方,只要唱到這部作品,就把人性中的共同的一點,突破語言的障礙,表現出來。這部作品,從中國出來,是中國的藝術家創作出來的,又融入到全世界對和平的共同向往的這個點上,這個意義是非常非常偉大的。

  歌唱家岳彩輪也說,音樂是無國界的,貝九(貝多芬的第九交響樂)可以說是世界和平的標桿,《黃河大合唱》這部經典的作品,堪輿貝多芬的第九交響樂媲美。它們能夠把全世界愛好和平的心都融合在一起,這種威力,是無法用語言來解釋的。

  主持人麗莎最後表示,《黃河大合唱》能夠像貝多芬第九交響樂,讓全世界的人都來傳唱,尤其是明天在卡內基音樂大廳唱響,是非常值得期待的。她相信,這將是一場非常成功震撼人心的演唱音樂會

紀念反法西斯抗戰勝利70周年卡內基音樂廳内風在吼黃河在咆嘯

 

久安電視獨家報道

 

 2月16日,《黃河大合唱》將在紐約卡內基音樂廳大廳唱響,不僅宣示了中華民族維護世界和平,反對日本軍國主義的決心,而美國、新西蘭、中國、臺灣等合唱團同臺演唱《黃河大合唱》更是唱出了世界人民熱愛和平的心聲。

 
  在卡內基音樂廳演唱《黃河大合唱》的合唱團的成員,以著名音樂家、指揮家、男中音歌唱家岳彩輪所帶領的美國康華合唱團100多位成員為主體,加上來自新西蘭奧克蘭音樂協會合唱團、中國上海歌劇院合唱團、臺灣龍吟合唱團共200多人組成,可謂水平一流陣容強大,這樣一個合唱團在世界頂級的音樂廳同臺放歌《黃河大合唱》,實在是非同凡響,當代僅有的一次,為世界反法西斯勝利和中國抗日戰爭勝利70周年的歷史譜寫了輝煌的一頁。
