2018・06・16-更新 Renouveau

每年六月,香港和聲都會以20及21世紀的當代音樂為主題,為大家帶來一系列「當代合唱音樂沙龍」。第五季我們將為您呈獻多位當代音樂大師的法語合唱作品,包括德布西為中世紀奧爾良的查理的詩詞譜上情感細膩的合唱旋律,拉威爾於第一次世界大戰初期以另類幽默手法描繪戰爭的短曲;莉莉・布蘭潔創作天才雖因她的早逝畫上句號,但仍掩蓋不住其雍容華麗的合唱作品;《雲雀》合唱選段是伯恩斯坦為法國現代作家安提戈涅的劇作配上樂曲,以截然不同的角度刻畫聖女貞德的審判與受刑。 適逢2018年為德布西和莉莉‧布蘭潔的逝世一百週年,也是伯恩斯坦的百年誕辰紀念,讓我們於《星籟天韵音樂會》為您帶來一次充滿新鮮感的法式旅程! June is a month where we celebrate music composed in the 20th & 21st centuries, and this year in our 5th season of the Contemporary Choral Series we will present some rarely-heard choral marvels, including the Chansons by Debussy and Ravel: Debussy created his songs on medieval poems by Charles of Orléans; Ravel’s […] more…

2018・01・06-盼望 Hope: Brahms “A German Requiem”

    面對母親離世的傷痛,布拉姆斯寫成了他唯一的安魂曲。這首《德意志安魂曲》,以細心揀選的德語聖經段落,代替傳統安魂彌撒的經文,讓合唱團以盼望療傷,安慰世間哀慟的人,昇華成「人」的安魂曲。在黑暗當中,盼望的曙光讓我們確信人性的善與美。 In the wake of his mother’s death, Johannes Brahms wrote his masterpiece A German Requiem. Replacing the Latin texts with passages carefully chosen from the German Bible, the result is (in Brahms’ own words) a “Human” requiem, one that comforts the bereaved with hope in life ahead. In the darkest hour, the […] more…

2016・06・11-英倫新聲 From the British Isles

CLICK HERE FOR PROGRAMME NOTES OF THE CONCERT 英國的合唱音樂一直備受注目,除了與聖公會的禮儀音樂息息相關,也被不列顛諸島豐富多彩的民歌傳統深深影響。英國當代合唱音樂繼承了浦賽爾、艾爾加、以及佛漢·威廉士的藝術性,以清澈的和聲和細膩的配樂,建立出獨樹一格的英倫新聲。 香港和聲「當代合唱音樂沙龍」第三回,精選英國當代作曲家的合唱作品,包括古鐸、契考特、泰雲納膾炙人口的經典,狄伯特和德林的世俗樂曲;不容錯過的還有哈里斯和瑞特的雙合唱作品,以及米洛的四首玫瑰牧歌-這位新晉的威爾斯作曲家在2011年受英國威廉王子委託,為其皇家婚禮譜寫音樂。 Choral works feature prominently in British music throughout the centuries, with strong ties to the Anglican liturgical music, complimented by the colourful collection of folksongs across the British Isles.

  香港和聲十五周年壓軸鉅獻,為您帶來一場法式音樂盛宴,以不同時代的合唱經典慶祝聖誕。夏邦泰是十七世紀巴洛克時期最優秀的法國作曲家之一,他的《子夜彌撒曲》完全建基於民間的聖誕頌歌,開創音樂史先河。聖桑以多首大型管弦樂曲聞名,不過創作合唱樂曲亦同樣耍家,23歲就任巴黎瑪德蓮教堂首席管風琴師,短短兩個星期便寫成名作《聖誕節神劇》。二十世紀巴黎作曲家浦朗克,富韻味的旋律和清澈通透的和聲為人津津樂道,其《四首聖誕經文歌》把他的風格展露無遺。十二月五日,預祝聖誕,齊來親身體驗一趟法國聖誕音樂之旅!
