鳳舞九天—月亮的箜篌弦舞

Date and Time: Saturday, January 30th, 2:00PM-4:00PM
Location: China Institute, 100 Washington Street, New York, NY 10006

箜篌(Kōng Hóu),歷代宮廷專屬雅樂,當今中國最大型的彈撥樂器,也是中國樂器中唯一和世界樂器接軌的特例。箜篌在歷代文人墨客的筆下都留下驚鴻一瞥,敦煌壁畫中的飛天樂舞更是濃墨重彩。華美人文學會1月30日下午2時至4時特邀請著名箜篌演奏家月亮跟紐約聽眾介紹箜篌的藝術魅力。

月亮,生於新疆,大隱於紐約。中國音樂家協會箜篌學會常務理事,中國民族管弦樂學會箜篌專業委員會常務理事,師承現代箜篌藝術創始人崔君芝。曾獲中國中央電視台民族器樂電視大賽優秀獎,箜篌第一名;“華音杯”中國音樂大賽金獎;亞洲藝術盛典金獎。首次攜中國現代箜篌登上林肯中心,在交響樂團中替代了西方的豎琴。並在紐約時裝周中以跨界合作的方式將箜篌帶入美國主流社會,開啟民族器樂新篇章。月亮的演奏風格融合中華文化的神韻、寫意、空靈、揮灑與西方音樂的嚴謹、結構、層次,以西方之骨盛東方氣韻,深入淺出,所到之處無不轟動。

在音樂的多元化展示上,月亮曾在電影《王的盛宴》、《銅雀台》中擔任現場古樂隊指導。並在北京現代音樂節、北京國際青年戲劇節上有過精彩的表演。

在這次的講座中,月亮將為聽眾講解:
• 箜篌的前世今生(古代箜篌簡史、現代箜篌介紹)
• 世界箜篌展示
• 箜篌日新月異的發展前景

月亮還將現場為大家演奏箜篌的傳世清音。
