各位朋友們平安, 今天的週末問安的主題是 - 樂人為快樂之本.紐約時報曾經出版了一系列有關音樂的文章, 題目是五分鐘內讓您愛上某種音樂, 例如五分鐘內讓您愛上鋼琴音樂, 五分鐘內讓您愛上小喇叭音樂, 五分鐘內讓您愛上大提琴音樂等等, 文章裏訪問一些音樂專業人員, 例如作曲家, 演奏家, 評論家等等, 請他們提供一首他們最喜歡的曲子, 長度在五分鐘上下.
五分鐘內讓您愛上小提琴音樂的專文裏有一則是訪問有新華爾滋大王之稱的 Andrea Rieu, 他選了自己演奏的 My Way 一曲, 他說提琴聲有一種悸動的特質, 所謂的 Vibrato, 他的老師在上課的時候常常示範這種 Vibrato 的技巧, 他日復一日, 年復一年地練習, 不但學到, 也瞭解這種悸動的琴聲能使人快樂, 但是他最快樂的是他的琴聲使他人快樂, making people happy by playing my violin.When I think of playing the violin, the first thing that comes to mind is love. Initially my love for my first violin teacher. I was captivated by her vibrato and longed to imitate the technique which produced such an amazing sound. I practiced and practiced until one day I succeeded in playing vibrato myself. I was the happiest boy on earth because I felt this was the sound that made the violin so beautiful. From that moment on I practiced day after day, year after year, always searching for romantic melodies which filled my heart with joy and which I discovered made other people happy, too. I still practice every day because this is what makes it possible for me to do the most beautiful job in the world: making people happy by playing my violin.
