商品說明

本品項為原裝進口商品


本套專輯為拉赫曼尼諾夫作品的真正全集,從早年學生時期的習作,直到逝世前的作品錄音,首度集合在這套專輯當中,絕對是拉赫曼尼諾夫作品有史以來最完整且最具決定性的全集版本。其中還收錄了拉赫曼尼諾夫於1919-29年間,親自為再現鋼琴(註)所作的紙捲錄音,包含許多小品與改編曲。珍貴的音樂文獻,超值低價限量發行,絕對值得典藏。


拉赫曼尼諾夫(Serge Rachmaninov, 1873-1943)為俄羅斯作曲家、鋼琴家與指揮,四歲時開始學琴,之後到聖彼得堡與莫斯科的音樂學院學習鋼琴、理論與作曲,1891年畢業於莫斯科音樂院鋼琴班,次年則得到作曲家班的文憑。其音樂天分早在音樂院發表第1號鋼琴協奏曲和歌劇《阿雷柯》時就已顯現,不久又發表第1號交響曲等作品,展現了豐富的多樣性。早期的創作受到所崇拜的柴可夫斯基之影響,充滿了濃烈的樂曲情感。這段期間由於《升c小調前奏曲》的成功轟動一時,讓他獲得1898年赴倫敦指揮演出的邀請。進入二十世紀之後,作品日趨成熟,如第2號、第3號鋼琴協奏曲、歌劇《吝嗇的騎士》及《黎密尼的法蘭契絲卡》等,接連得到佳評。

他曾多次帶團赴外演出,也在莫斯科舉行音樂會。直到1917年蘇維埃政權成立,趁海外巡迴演奏之際在美國定居下來。遠離家鄉並經過十年的空白,他才陸續發表第4號鋼琴協奏曲、《帕格尼尼主題狂想曲》和第3號鋼琴協奏曲與《交響舞曲》等重要代表作。1943年逝世於加州。

  

拉赫曼尼諾夫為二十世紀的音樂史寫下燦爛的一頁:三部歌劇、三首交響曲、四首協奏曲、多首管弦樂曲、鋼琴音樂、合唱曲、室內樂與歌曲。許多作品因電影選為配樂而更廣為人知,如電影《鋼琴師》中的《第3號鋼琴協奏曲》,以及《似曾相識》中採用的《帕格尼尼主題狂想曲》等。


受惠於DECCA眾多的傑出音樂家,這套專輯得以呈現最高水準的演出效果,其中流砥柱便是鋼琴家與指揮家阿胥肯納吉。他不僅出版過拉赫曼尼諾夫的主要鋼琴作品全集,更擔任拉赫曼尼諾夫協會的主席。一生以彈奏拉赫曼尼諾夫聞名,前後灌錄過兩套拉赫曼尼諾夫鋼琴協奏曲全集,其中的第三號協奏曲還灌錄過三次。其所灌錄的拉赫曼尼諾夫作品,至今都還是最具有代表性的經典。也是少數頂尖鋼琴家中,關注到拉赫曼尼諾夫一些較不為人知鋼琴作品的人。如拉赫曼尼諾夫改編自己的宗教曲《晚禱》中的樂章,是一首少為人知,只有像阿胥肯納吉這樣出身俄國音樂院的行家才知曉的作品。

專輯中還附贈了一張「真正的拉赫曼尼諾夫」(The Real Rachmaninov)CD,內容為阿胥肯納吉與音樂專家羅伯.考萬(Rob Cowan)討論俄羅斯浪漫音樂的談話錄音。


註:再現鋼琴( reproducing piano)是二十世紀初唯一能夠記錄演奏家的彈奏並加以重新播放的樂器。雖然當時愛迪生的錄音技術已經開始被運用,但顯然還不是十分優良,因此在當時記錄音樂最佳的方式便是再現鋼琴的紙捲,而重播的最佳工具就是再現鋼琴。在 1920年代想要買鋼琴的人,可以在 Steinway, Bechstein等大公司的展示室中聽到由 拉赫曼尼諾夫,或是帕德烈夫斯基(Paderewski)等人經由再現鋼琴演奏他們的拿手曲目,很顯然地,這是最具說服力的呈現方式。
