The Timecrafters: Perpetual Waltz 華爾兹





One of the big categories of music is for dancing.
During the early 19th Century, when the waltz first came to prominence, it was very much a ballroom dance and not much else. Yet with the development of Romantic music, especially through Chopin and Johann Strauss, the waltz became more of an emblem, to the point that in modern society the waltz’s emblematic meaning has more relevance than its actual function as a dance. By tradition, cities across the world including Vienna and Hong Kong celebrate the New Year by having a concert of waltzes, but the question remains: how did the waltz acquire such an emblematic significance?

不! 是歌、詩、拉!

詩詞同音樂一向都係本質非常相似而不可分割嘅藝術形式。觸景生情、借景抒情、緣情寫景 ー 用音樂佩上押韻嘅詩詞已經喺好耐之前成為人們抒發深切情感最常用嘅表達。雖然創作方式極廣、學問博大精深,但係精髓亦離唔開音樂同詩詞嘅結合。沒了詩詞又會點?

Timecrafters 今次將會同大家分享一啲非常美麗嘅室樂作品,尋找音樂同詩詞嘅關係,比較同感受作曲家對詩詞嘅表達,聆聽音樂之中嘅詩景。
