The new music season of the national exchange is a bit "separated"

  "The end of the world's translation is in the northeast"... In addition to Dingliugu Ailing and Su Yiming, the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics also brought a word "separated".

Gao Tingyu, the men's 500m speed skating champion, was interviewed after the race. When asked about his personality, he only said two words "across the road", which successfully confused everyone present, and even made the translator look like a question mark...

  Searching for "separation" on the Internet is the "Northeast Dialect Level 6 Test Question" translated from Manchu, which means "the more special one".

If we borrow this term to describe the content and features of the 2022 music season of the China National Symphony Orchestra, it seems to be a no-brainer.

  "Happy New Year!" Li Xincao, the newly appointed head of the group, greeted everyone at the press conference of the new music season of the State Council.

Behind these three simple Chinese characters, there is actually an extraordinary deep meaning.

  As far as the world is concerned, the regular music seasons of professional orchestras are set on New Year's Eve, such as the 2021-2022 music season.

Since the first music season was launched in 1996, China State Diplomatic Corp has also adopted the New Year's Eve music season mode, which is synchronized with the music seasons of most Western symphony orchestras.

However, an ingenious and major change has taken place in the new music season in 2022, which is to break the traditional New Year's Eve music season model and change the schedule of the music season from "New Year's Eve" to "Natural Year".

In the latest program booklet of the State Council, it is written that "2022 Music Season", the first performance is on January 15, and the closing performances are concentrated at the end of December.

  This new attempt to "open the brain" has actually been hidden in Li Xincao's heart for a long time.

In the past two years, he has become more and more aware of the fact that the setting method of Western music seasons is not suitable for my country's national conditions.

For example, China has its own traditional festivals. If these festivals are compared with the calendar, the dates are different every year; the summer music activities are also somewhat different from those in the West. Chinese children are more likely to enter the concert hall during this season and experience the symphony on the spot. The unique charm of art, and professional musicians and children in the West will go to summer camps or music festivals; in addition, there are differences between East and West performances in low and high seasons.

If the music season is planned in a natural year, it will not only make the performance window of the music season fully fit with traditional Chinese festivals, but also fill in the "summer vacation" gap in the traditional New Year's Eve music season model.

  Go back to the content of the new music season of Guojiao, browse the menu in detail, the creativity is frequent, and the new wind is blowing.

  "LISTEN TO CLASSIC" is an old brand of Guojiao, which mainly shows the artistic level of a group.

This season, the label, will salvage Western classics from the Baroque period all the way to the 20th century.

For example, conductor Zhang Yi will perform the "Manfred Symphony", which is the first time he has performed this work, and this work has rarely been performed in the history of diplomatic relations.

Rachmaninoff's Third Symphony, conducted by conductor Lin Daye, is also a very difficult and rare work.

In addition, starting from this year, Li Xincao will implement a major project: commanding the diplomatic relations to complete one or two symphonies of composer Bruckner every year, from the serial number "0" to "9", all at once.

This "horizontal dish" also has the icing on the cake, that is, the first half of each concert is Mozart's work.

Such "placement", unique creativity and ingenuity.

  As the new head of art, Li Xincao, who is extroverted and humorous, has instilled a touch of "tide" and "cute" into her while laying a solid artistic foundation for the diplomatic relations between the two countries.

This point can be seen from the title of the concert. There is a concert called "Lao Zhang's Lao Xiao".

For Western musicians with long names and well-known names, Chinese music fans like to abbreviate them. Pan"... an "old" word, simple and kind, but also full of respect.

For example, "Old Zhang", yes, is the "writer who was delayed by the conductor", the conductor who swiped and dominated the screen because of the publication of "Retire..." when he retired.

In this music season, he will carry the "Old Xiao" series of works, including chamber music, symphony, etc., which is expected.

You know, "Lao Zhang" is the authoritative interpreter of "Lao Xiao" music in the domestic conductor circle.

  Affected by the new crown epidemic, foreign musicians performing in China and domestic musicians "going overseas" are still subject to various restrictions.

Therefore, leading the "national tide" has become a measure for domestic orchestras to adapt to local conditions.

The new music season of the State Diploma will focus on inviting the most representative musicians of the three generations of the old, middle-aged and young in China, including conductors such as Chen Xieyang, Tan Lihua, Zhang Guoyong, Lv Jia, Zhang Yi, Lin Daye, Yang Yang, Jin Chengzhi, and resident artists. Lu Siqing, Chen Sa, Yuan Fang, Luo Wei, Li Yuhe, Li Xiuying, Song Yuanming, Zhang Xueliang, Xue Haoyin, Liu Songhu, Zhang Yuan and other guest artists.

Music fans will be able to fully appreciate the "national trend" of classical music.

  If we say the "top trend" of "national tide", it should belong to the "Yellow River Cantata", which is also the treasure of the national troupe.

This season, the work will launch a national tour, landing in major regions and cities in the Yellow River Basin, including Yan'an and other places.

It is worth mentioning that this edition of "Yellow River Cantata" will be annotated with the "Central Orchestra Performance Edition", which is the version reorganized by conductor Yan Liangkun led by the Central Orchestra's creative team in the 1970s. .

  In addition, music fans will also enjoy the symphonic music "Shajiabang" this season.

In fact, "Shajiabang" has two works, one is modern Peking Opera and the other is symphonic music. This time, the symphonic music "Shajiabang" created by the Central Orchestra will be performed.

Li Xincao said: "The symphony version is different from Peking Opera. It is a condensed role. There are only three roles in the symphony. I also hope to do this, and try to give everyone an original presentation.”

  With the arrival of the "national tide", Guojiao will also give birth to a brand-new art brand "Guozhijiaozi", which is inspired by the homophonic abbreviation of "guojiao".

This brand is mainly to reclaim, cultivate, and deeply cultivate a "private land" for state diplomatic relations, and build a training ground for the outstanding musicians in the regiment.

This season, two sets of concerts featuring instrumental concertos are the first to be performed, and the performers are all musicians from China.

Of course, they are all competing for "jobs".

  The commissioned works have always demonstrated the creative vitality of an art troupe. In this season, the State Council will present two commissioned works from “big one and one small”: one is the collective creation of the symphonic suite "Ode to Mountains and Rivers", and the other is the conductor of the Rainbow Chorus. The chorus "Moment of Life" composed by Jia Jin Chengzhi.

The former has a lofty conception and a broad pattern, while the latter has a plain perspective and is full of artistic interest.

  There is also a "Challenge Without Limits - Eight Seasons of Time and Space" indoor concert, which can also be called "Separate Road".

The performance was performed by Lv Siqing and the China National Diplomatic Chamber Orchestra.

The so-called "Eight Seasons" refers to the two "Four Seasons" by Vivaldi and Piazzolla. This is a concert without a conductor. In Li Xincao's words, it is a "fingerless concert". A very difficult thing, or something that is very difficult for some orchestras to achieve. In the first two seasons, we have tried several off-the-finger chamber music concerts, two sets that are all Mozart, and more challenging Handel's 'Water Music' and 'Royal Fireworks Music' were very successful in throwing off the conductor."

  Bai Yansong commented on the CCTV program: In the Northeast dialect, it is usually a derogatory term to say "separate the road", which is a bit ironic and critical.

But when Gao Tingyu used it on himself, it was a bit of self-deprecating self-deprecation, and it was a different flavor of "Versailles".

Therefore, it can be proved that his heart is very strong... The same is true, and the diplomatic relations are also using step by step forge ahead and hard work, proving his confidence and stability as the vanguard of the National Academy of Arts.
