导赏 指挥家伦纳德·斯拉特金的父亲是生活在沙俄时期的乌克兰移民,和斯托科夫斯基、库谢维茨基等早期从俄国移民到美国的那一代指挥家不同,斯拉特金接受的是纯正的美式音乐教育和训练,但这并不影响他对俄罗斯学派作品的特殊兴趣,以及在这一领域的非凡成就。上世纪70年代他在担任圣路易斯交响乐团音乐总监期间,录制了大量优质的唱片,而这其中就以俄罗斯学派作品尤为突出,他的柴可夫斯基、拉赫马尼诺夫有着其他美国指挥家所不具备的粗犷和豪迈,又极大限度地发挥了美国乐团精湛的演奏技巧。而在他就职里昂国家管弦乐团之后,斯拉特金则又凸显了其对法国作品演绎的才能,无论是柏辽兹、圣-桑抑或拉威尔,在斯拉特金棒下总能获得流光溢彩的斑斓效果,四年前他和乐团在京的音乐会至今令人印象深刻。因此本场音乐会圣-桑的《G小调第二钢琴协奏曲》和拉赫玛尼诺夫《第二交响曲》可谓是为斯拉特金度身定制,中国爱乐乐团在演绎俄罗斯作品方面历来颇有心得,光是拉赫玛尼诺夫《第二交响曲》在历史上就有多次极为成功的演绎,对于这部旋律动人,跌宕起伏又喜闻乐见的音乐会大型交响曲来说,斯拉特金与乐团的合作无疑格外令人值得期待。(许渌洋,乐评人)
