导赏  首次亮相中国爱乐乐团舞台的韩国小提琴家柳爱莎,爱乐者久闻其名,十年前,她十六岁便成为西贝柳斯小提琴比赛有史以来最年轻的获奖者,其与阿什肯纳奇、杜达梅尔、萨洛宁等指挥大师以及英国爱乐管弦乐团等名团合作的辉煌履历,又写下了与余隆执棒的中国爱乐乐团携手演绎巴伯《小提琴协奏曲》的崭新一页。巴伯被誉为“新浪漫主义音乐的先知”,他的这首小提琴协奏曲以新浪漫主义技法谱成,乐曲柔美飘逸的抒情风格中,洋溢着奔放的个性和动人的歌唱性,是充满浪漫主义气息的二十世纪小提琴重要文献之一。巴伯创作这首小提琴协奏曲时不到而立之年,柳爱莎的演绎无疑是一次跨越时空的青春相遇和激情讴歌,给爱乐者带来别样的聆赏体验。同样,从里姆斯基-柯萨科夫的交响组曲《天方夜谭》中,爱乐者聆听到的,是激情奔放的“爱乐之声”呈现的浓郁情感色彩和绚烂风情画卷。

作为指挥家、音乐活动家的余隆,被《纽约时报》称为“中国音乐版图上最有影响力的人物。”他的艺术人生因为引领中国古典音乐事业的纵深发展、推动中国音乐家与作曲家登上国际舞台而熠熠生辉。在中国芸芸交响乐团之林,余隆是其中三个顶级团体的“掌门人”:中国爱乐乐团的艺术总监,上海交响乐团和广州交响乐团的音乐总监。他也身兼香港管弦乐团首席客座指挥、上海夏季音乐节联合总监。早于1998年,他创办了北京国际音乐节并担任艺术总监至2017年,后又继续担任艺术委员会主席至今。此外,余隆还担任中国音乐家协会副主席及中国音乐家协会交响乐团联盟主席。

余隆麾下的中国爱乐乐团,在教宗本笃十六世亲临现场见证下,首登梵蒂冈保罗六世礼堂演出,是中国交响乐团中的第一次,这场意义非凡的音乐会也是增进东西文明交流互动的里程碑式事件。2014年,余隆大师再开中国乐团先河,带领中国爱乐乐团在伦敦皇家艾尔伯特大厅的BBC逍遥音乐节献演,数以百万计的英国观众通过不同的方式观看了音乐会的转播。

自2009年始,余隆大师执掌上海交响乐团至今,成就斐然。2014年,上海交响乐团音乐厅落成;同年,余隆与上海音乐学院及纽约爱乐乐团一道,共同创建上海乐队学院。这是中国第一所为管弦乐手设立的研究教育机构。此外,应纽约爱乐乐团邀请,余隆作为该乐团国际顾问委员会的成员,与其他11位音乐倡导者和音乐大使协力推动各国音乐家及音乐机构深化国际交流。2016年,两年一度的音乐盛事“上海艾萨克斯特恩国际小提琴比赛”成功举办。2018年6月,余隆与德意志留声机公司(DG)签订独家代理合同,成为了DG旗下首位中国指挥家,为上海交响乐团取得全球发行与供应的合作关系。2019年,余隆率上海交响乐团世界巡演,亮相BBC逍遥音乐节、阿姆斯特丹音乐厅、爱丁堡国际艺术节、拉维尼亚艺术节以及卢塞恩音乐节。

1994年,余隆首次指挥广州交响乐团;2003年成为乐团音乐总监。在任内,余隆大力扩展乐团的保留曲目,带领乐团拓宽国际演出版图,先后到访欧洲、美洲、澳洲、非洲、中东等地。同时,他也不遗余力履行音乐教育的使命。2005年至2007年,广州交响乐团创办广东国际音乐夏令营,并邀请著名指挥大师夏尔迪图瓦任音乐总监,以及玛塔阿格里奇和加里格雷夫曼等著名艺术家组成导师团队。2017年1月,广州交响乐团创办首届广东国际青年音乐周,在演出与教育的对话中“开启世界与中国交响乐新的篇章”。音乐周由余隆亲自担任艺术委员会主席,并由世界著名大提琴家马友友担任艺术总监。

国际舞台上的余隆,同样地位显赫,炙手可热。世上最受瞩目的管弦乐团,如纽约爱乐乐团、芝加哥交响乐团、费城管弦乐团、洛杉矶爱乐乐团、蒙特利尔交响乐团、巴黎管弦乐团、班贝格交响乐团、汉堡国家歌剧院乐团、柏林广播交响乐团、北德广播交响乐团、慕尼黑爱乐乐团、悉尼交响乐团、BBC交响乐团、英国爱乐乐团、东京爱乐乐团和新加坡交响乐团都曾经在余隆的指挥下演出。

1964年,余隆生于上海的音乐世家。他音乐上的启蒙与授业恩师正是他的祖父、著名作曲家丁善德。其后,他求学上海音乐学院;继而负笈西行,入读并毕业于著名的柏林高等艺术大学。1992年,余隆任北京中央歌剧院常任指挥。

驰骋乐坛数十载,余隆大师的成就备受肯定。2010年,他获评“年度中国文化人物”、2013年获颁“中华艺文奖”。为表彰余隆对中外文化交流及中国音乐发展的贡献,中央音乐学院向他授予荣誉院士证书。

Samuel BARBER: Violin Concerto, Op. 14

Nikolai RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Scheherazade, Op. 35


Esther YOO, violin

Long YU, conductor


Esther YOO, violin

In an era when technical perfection is a given, the spotlight inevitably shifts to interpretation, and Esther Yoo’s playing has been described as ”mesmerising", “soulful“, “ spellbinding“, "intensely lyrical”, and “taking her audience into an enchanted garden.”  She performs with many leading conductors – including Vladimir Ashkenazy (with whom she and the Philharmonia Orchestra recorded the Sibelius, Glazunov and Tchaikovsky concertos for Deutsche Grammophon), Gustavo Dudamel, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Thierry Fischer, Vasily Petrenko, Karina Canellakis and Andrew Davis – and orchestras such as the Philharmonia, Los Angeles Philharmonic, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Seoul Philharmonic, Deutsche Radio Philharmonie or the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. She has also performed at a range of prominent festivals including the BBC Proms and Aspen Music Festival.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra appointed her as their inaugural Artist-in-Residence in 2018, through which Esther participated extensively in educational and outreach projects, alongside their concert performances in London and across the UK.

Esther has appeared in recital at Lincoln Center and Wigmore Hall, and in 2018 she featured prominently on the soundtrack and accompanying Decca disc of the feature film, On Chesil Beach. The piano trio, Z.E.N., (which she co-founded together with fellow former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists Zhang Zuo and Narek Hakhnazaryan), tours widely in North America, Europe and Asia. They chose works by Brahms and Dvorak for their first recording and are currently preparing their second recording which, like the first, will be released on DG. 

Esther may be unique among classical soloists in being fully tri-cultural. She was born and spent her earliest years in the U.S., before receiving her education in Belgium and Germany, but she always retained her family’s proud Korean heritage. Having authentic roots in three continents may have contributed to her versatility and exceptionally broad range of expression, and was unquestionably a factor in making her one of the most articulate and gifted communicators in the field of classical music.

She began playing the violin at 4 and made her concerto debut aged 8. At 16 she became the youngest prizewinner of the International Sibelius Violin Competition and two years later she was one of the youngest ever prizewinners of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2012. In 2014 she became a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist and in 2018 Classic FM featured her in their Top 30 Artists under 30.

 

Long YU, conductor

Hailed by The New York Times as “the most powerful figure in China’s classical music scene,” the conductor and impresario Long Yu has devoted his illustrious career to steering China’s growing connection to classical music while familiarizing international audiences with the country’s most eminent musicians and composers. From north to south, Maestro Yu currently holds the top position in China’s three most prominent orchestras—Artistic Director of the China Philharmonic Orchestra in Beijing and Music Director of both the Shanghai and Guangzhou symphony orchestras—as well as Principal Guest Conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. He is co-director of Shanghai’s Music in the Summer Air festival and Chair of the Artistic Committee of the Beijing Music Festival, an annual autumn event that he founded in 1998 and served as Artistic Director until 2018. He is currently Vice President of the China Musicians Association and Chairman of its recently established League of China Orchestras.

Under Maestro Yu’s baton, the China Philharmonic Orchestra became the first Chinese orchestra to perform at the Vatican’s Paul VI Auditorium, a concert attended by Pope Benedict XVI marking a giant step in bridging East and West. In 2014, Maestro Yu led the China Philharmonic in the first Chinese orchestral performance at the BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall, a concert viewed by millions of people across the United Kingdom. 

Since taking the reins of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra in 2009, Maestro Yu’s initiatives include the 2014 opening of Shanghai Symphony Hall. That same year, he founded the Shanghai Orchestra Academy, China’s first post-graduate training program for orchestral musicians, in partnership with the Shanghai Conservatory of Music and the New York Philharmonic, which also named Maestro Yu an honorary member of their International Advisory Board, a 12-member network of advocates and ambassadors gathered to connect the Philharmonic with individuals and institutions in their home countries. Two years later, he launched the biennial Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, a result of his relationship with the Stern family dating from the violinist’s appearance at the Beijing Music Festival in 2000 marking the 20th anniversary of his groundbreaking China tour. In June 2018, Maestro Yu became the first Chinese conductor to sign an exclusive relationship with Deutsche Grammophon, offering the Shanghai Symphony a global release and distribution partnership. A year later, he led the orchestra on a tour of the United States and Europe, with performances at the BBC Proms and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw as well as the Edinburgh, Lucerne and Ravinia festivals.

As Music Director of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra since 2003—an orchestra he first conducted in 1994—Maestro Yu has expanded the orchestra’s repertory and touring outreach (to Europe, the US, Australia, Africa and the Middle East) as well as its educational mission. Between 2005 and 2007, the GSO organized the Canton International Summer Music Academy with a distinguished faculty including Martha Argerich and Gary Graffman. In January 2017, the GSO inaugurated Youth Music Culture Guangdong, a performance and educational initiative “opening a new page in the Chinese symphonic world” with Yo-Yo Ma as Artistic Director and Maestro Yu leading its Artistic Committee. 

Also a towering figure on the international stage, Maestro Yu has conducted many highly-acclaimed orchestras throughout the world, including the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Staatsoper Hamburg, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic and Singapore Symphony Orchestra. 

Born in 1964 into a Shanghai musical family, Maestro Yu received his early musical education from his grandfather, the renowned composer Ding Shande, later continuing his studies at the Shanghai Conservatory and the Hochschule der Kunst in Berlin. In 1992, he was appointed Principal Conductor of the Central Opera House in Beijing and served as its conductor for three consecutive years.

Among his citations in China, Long Yu was named the 2010 Person of the Year in the Arts Field and was also granted the 2013 China Arts Award and an Honorary Academician from the Central Conservatory of Music for his dedication to cultural exchange and music development in China. 

Internationally, Maestro Yu received the Arts Patronage Award of the Montblanc Cultural Foundation in 2002. A year later, he was named a Chevalier dans L’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. In 2005, the Italian government honored him with the title of L’onorificenza di Commendatore dell’Ordine al Merito. He was awarded France’s highest order of merit by joining the Légion d’Honneur in 2014. The following year, Maestro Yu received the prestigious Global Citizen Award from the Atlantic Council and the Samuel Simons Sanford Award from the Yale School of Music. In 2016, he was elected a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and also awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. In 2018, he was conferred an Honorary Doctorate from the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
