导赏:手头有一套珍贵的视听资料,是伯恩斯坦在哈佛大学的6篇演讲,看每一遍时,我都全神贯注,生怕错过一个表情,遗漏一个句子。大师巧妙生动地运用乔姆斯基语言学理论的逻辑框架,通过乐曲的演奏和谱例的分析,深刻精辟地阐述了在人类历史进程中音乐发展演变的社会价值内涵和哲学理念本质,而演讲的对象,是任何年龄任何地域任何背景的大众。大师用美国作曲家艾夫斯一首很短的铜管乐曲子的名字来做他的哈佛系列演讲的标题:The Unanswered Question。伯恩斯坦站在前所未有的智慧高度上为未被回答的问题解惑,但又不是给出终结答案,而是引导人们进一步去思考,还有什么未被回答的问题等着我们去探索。我常想,要身为什么样的大家,才能具有如此自由的领略和驾驭音乐的神功;而又要心怀什么样的大爱,才能毕生不遗余力地把音乐的美灌溉到普天下所有人的心田。人们崇敬和热爱伯恩斯坦,在心中永远缅怀这位20世纪最伟大的音乐家。中国爱乐乐团和余隆曾在2008年的北京国际音乐节上举办了纪念伯恩斯坦诞辰90周年的音乐会,由伯恩斯坦的女儿吉米·伯恩斯坦现场担任曲目讲解。在这之前,2000年的北京国际音乐节邀请吉米和她的妹妹尼娜参加纪念伯恩斯坦逝世10周年的音乐会和系列活动,我主持了她们在北京大学的一场演讲会,在台上和台下听她们讲述家庭生活中的伯恩斯坦的许多故事和这位伟人一生的音乐创作活动,留下了永远难忘的记忆。今天,中国爱乐乐团隆重举行纪念伯恩斯基百岁诞辰的系列音乐会,以最好的方式来继承大师的精神遗产和思想财富。我们重温大师的传世作品,重现大师对经典曲目的演绎,在又一次的感动中,以感恩的心,永远踏在大师所指引的爱乐人生的旅程上,去追求无止境的感悟带来的精神升华!

宁峰在2006年第51届意大利帕格尼尼国际小提琴比赛中获得金奖,有一部报道了这届赛事全程精彩瞬间的纪录片,片名是Heart & Virtuosity。听宁峰的演奏,就能感觉到他是用他的心在拉琴,他是深受人们喜爱的年青小提琴家。期待着这场音乐会上,听众们的心也随着宁峰的琴声飞向伯恩斯坦小夜曲那妙不可言的柏拉图意境......

大卫·斯特恩是中国听众的老朋友。1979年他的父亲艾萨克·斯特恩携带家人首次到中国访问,在那部著名的获得奥斯卡金像奖的纪录片From Mao to Mozart中,有这样的镜头:在父亲的独奏音乐会上,少年大卫坐在钢琴边上担任翻谱。20年后,第二届北京国际音乐节在舞台上历史性地重现了纪录片中斯特恩与李德伦二位大师的亲密合作,在这场世纪之交的纪念音乐会上,当年出现在纪录片中的三位小神童徐惟聆、王健、潘淳担任贝多芬三重协奏曲的独奏,大卫指挥。作为活跃在世界各地歌剧院、交响乐团、室内乐团、音乐节的指挥家,大卫·斯特恩多次访华担任客席指挥并参加音乐活动,包括2016年担任首届上海艾萨克·斯特恩国际小提琴比赛评委会联合主席。(郭维德)

David Stern, conductor

David Stern's musical leadership is spread across three continents. Whether conducting a major symphony orchestra, baroque opera, teaching vocal master classes or defending cultural activities, Stern keeps his musicians, students and audiences riveted by sharing his strong musical convictions, his flexibility of approach and his belief that music is relevant and indeed essential in today's world. He is the founder and director of the Paris-based opera studio and period-instrument ensemble Opera Fuoco, as well as artistic adviser and chief conductor of the Shanghai Baroque Festival and chief conductor of Palm Beach Opera.

Stern is known for his extensive range of repertoire. As music director of the Israel and the St. Gallen Opera houses, he championed eclectic works such as Simone Mayr's Medea, Berg's Wozzeck, Britain's Turn of the Screw and Weill's Mahagonny. He has premiered four new operas since 2010 : Gil Shochat's A Child Dreams at the Israel Opera, Nicolas Bacri's Cosi Fanciulli commissioned by Opera Fuoco and performed at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Ben Moore's Enemies, A Love Story in Palm Beach and Jan Sandstrom’s The Rococo Machine in Drottningholm, Sweden.

With his Paris ensemble he has recently recorded Berenice, a compilation of late Baroque and early Classical works with three members of Opera Fuoco’s studio singers. Previous recordings with Opera Fuoco include The Romantic Cantatas with Karine Deshayes, Johann Christian Bach’s opera Zanaida, and two Handel works, Semele and Jephtha. He recorded Simone Mayr's Medea with the St. Gallen Opera, John Field’s piano concertos with Concerto Köln and Andreas Staier as well as Symphonies by Otto Nicolai and concertos of Albert Roussel.

Since launching the Aix-en-Provence Festival’s Academie Internationale d’Art Lyrique with Stephane Lissner in 1998, David Stern has been committed to developing young voices. He created Opera Fuoco in 2003 as a platform for young professional singers in France, combining both an opera studio, a period-instrument ensemble and a company which produces concertante and staged projects internationally. In 2016, he conducted Mozart’s Magic Flute at the Juilliard School in New York, and since 2014, as artistic director of the Shanghai Baroque Festival, Stern has included singers from the Shanghai conservatory in performances and master classes at the Shanghai Symphony Hall. He works regularly with the Young Artists Programs in Palm Beach and Crested Butte. 

Stern has enjoyed collaborations with international stage directors including David Alden, Stéphane Braunschweig, Robin Guarino, Sam Helfrich, Waut Koeken, Jakob Peters-Messer and Aron Stiehl, among many others. With Yoshi Oïda he created iconic settings of Britten’s Curlew River and Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde and with Francisco Negrin he led performances of Mozart’s Mitridate as artist in residence at the 2014 Drottningholm Opera Festival. In 2016, the opera production of Telemann’s Damon with David Stern and the ensemble Opera Fuoco (director: Aron Stiehl) at the Telemann Festival Magdeburg achieved great critical acclaim.

He is regularly invited to the Edmonton Opera, the Drottninghom Opera Festival, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Shanghai and Guangzhou Symphonies, the China Philharmonic, the New Russian Symphony the Swedish Chamber orchestra and has led recent performances with the Royal Danish Opera orchestra, the Vienna Symphony and NDR Hannover.
