“Every time we collaborate as music colleagues, the meeting of “minds and hearts” is at the centre of that remarkable experience. This has been true through the ages - the most inspired and inspiring musical friendships are intrinsically tied to this connection between erhu and viola - An Inspirational Musical Friendships!”  Duan Aiai

With so many performances across the homeland, the duet begins to establish the famous of all musical affiliations with composers such as Mr Enjott Schneider, President of the renowned German Composition Association, Mr Sheng Ye and Mr Sun Jian, two of the best-known composers from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. A beautiful and mesmerizing composition created for Duan Aiai, erhu and Sheng Li, viola with piano accompanist, Jiang Shan has such expressive vocal quality that appropriately captured the spirit that a great font of inspiration channelled between these three great musicians, fuelled by intimate affection, passion, and artistic intensity that they shared. Through the gentle dialogue of the two ethnically different strings instruments, one can hear the voices of human exchanging intimately and affectionately.  

The ONLY one-night concert will cover a range of repertoires from the original adaption of Chi-nese folk songs, music inspired by the Central Asia and Georgia region. The colourful music dances inspired across the silk road. This is going to be a musical dialogue that flowed from the compositional intersection through the geo-culture, landscape and language of music.

上海民族乐团胡琴独奏家段皑皑和上海音乐学院中提琴教授盛利,这两位对音乐饱含着满腔热情的音乐家,在长期的交流沟通中,意外地发现各自手中的乐器竟能融合、碰撞出奇异动听的音乐火花,也由此触动了他们想要将代表着中国传统音乐文化的胡琴和西方弦乐器家族中的中提琴进行全新组合,并以此展开一场“中西对话”的灵感。为此,他们邀请了诸多知名作曲家,包括德国作曲家协会会长Enjott Schneider、上海音乐学院青年作曲家沈叶、孙剑等,为胡琴和中提琴这一创新的组合形式进行创作。

同样身为弦乐器的胡琴和中提琴,不仅都具有善于歌唱的特点,悠扬动听,同时在音区方面也十分相近,但在两种不同文化的浸染之下,它们又各自有着独特的音乐形象。胡琴宛若江南女子的柔美婉转和中提琴粗犷豪迈的性格在音乐中相辅相成;胡琴的质朴深情和中提琴犹如天鹅绒般的细腻在音乐中交织缠绵,妙趣横生,这些都为作曲家们带来了诸多灵感。 

在本场音乐会中,听众们将听到结合了中国传统文化的原创音乐作品,中亚细亚、格鲁吉亚苍茫悲凉的旋律,以及丝绸之路上流传的西域乐舞等等。整场音乐会犹如一个绚丽的万花筒,在听众眼前展开了一副瑰丽多变的音乐画卷。这些艺术的想象、碰撞与融合,在展现多元包容的中国音乐文化的同时,也架起了跨越时空的“中西对话”的桥梁。
