Saxophone player / Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra : Swire Classic Insights Michael Nyman 75th Birthday—Beyond The Piano 尼曼75歲誕辰音樂會──《鋼琴別戀》以外的音樂世界

One of Britain's most innovative and celebrated composers, Michael Nyman has had a long-lasting collaborative partnership with filmmaker Peter Greenaway, and is probably best-known for his multi-platinum soundtrack album to Jane Campion's The Piano.

This programme features a selection of Nyman’s compositions. Apart from the opener In Re Don Giovanni which is a deconstruction of Mozart’s Don Giovanni, all the other compositions are either taken directly from, or derived from, his most famous soundtracks.

On the Fiddle for solo violin and string orchestra comprises three movements, each of which is derived from his scores for the Peter Greenaway films The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989), A Zed & Two Noughts (1985) and Prospero’s Books (1990).

The final work, Where the Bee Dances, is also derived from Prospero’s Books. This saxophone concerto features Simon Haram, a member of the Michael Nyman Band.

尼曼是英國當今最享負盛名及創意澎湃的作曲家之一,是大師級導演彼得格連納韋的長期合作伙伴。尼曼最為人熟悉的,就是為珍甘比茵的得獎電影《鋼琴別戀》所創作的配樂,電影原聲大碟更創多白金銷量。

今場節目精選了尼曼的作品,除了開場曲《解構唐喬望尼》,其餘都是來自他最出色的電影配樂。《把風的提琴手》是寫給小提琴和樂團的三樂章作品,每一樂章代表了他為格連納韋所寫的電影音樂,分別是《情慾色香味》(1989)、《動物園》(1985)、《法師寶典》(1991)。

壓軸作《蜂舞之所在》來自《法師寶典》,我們很榮幸請到尼曼樂隊成員之一的夏林,為這薩克管協奏曲擔任獨奏。
