Moving on now to our second concert, this will begin with instrumental music by British composers -- Benjamin Britten and Judith Weir. After the interval we'll go to Australia for a piece by Ross Edwards: The Tower of Remoteness. According to Edwards, the inspiration for this piece came from nature, when he was sitting alone in the dry bed of a creek, overshadowed by the leaves of palm trees, listening to the birds and insects. The Tower of Remoteness is scored for piano and clarinet. Edwards says he realised years after writing the piece that he had subconsciously modelled its opening phrase on a bird call.

现在让我们聊聊第二个音乐会吧,这一场以英国作曲家Benjamin Britten和Judith Weir的器乐曲开始。中场休息之后,我们会进入到澳大利亚作曲家Ross Edwards的作品:《遥远的塔》。据Edwards所说,这部作品的灵感来源于自然,当他独自坐在小溪干涸的河床上,被棕榈树的树叶所遮蔽,听着小鸟和昆虫的鸣叫。《遥远的塔》是钢琴和单簧管配乐。Edwards说他在写完这个曲子后很多年后发现他在潜意识中在乐曲开头模仿的鸟叫声。
Ross Edwards was born in 1943 in Sydney, Australia, and studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and the universities of Adelaide and Sydney. He's well known in Australia, and in fact he's one of the country's most performed composers. He's written a wide range of music, from symphonies and concertos to some composed specifically for children. Edwards's music has been described as being ‘deeply connected to Australia', and it can be regarded as a celebration of the diversity of cultures that Australia can be proud of.
Ross Edwards在1943年生于澳大利亚悉尼,在悉尼音乐学院、阿德雷德大学和悉尼大学进行了学习。他在澳大利亚非常出名,其实他是这个国家作品被演奏的最多的作曲家之一。他写的音乐范围很广,从交响乐和协奏曲到一些专门为孩子创作的作品。Edwards的音乐被称为“与澳大利亚紧密相连”,它被认为是澳大利亚所引以为豪的文化多样性的庆典。
The last of the three Australian composers to be represented in our festival is Carl Vine. Born in 1954, Vine, like Liza Lim, comes from Perth, Western Australia. He took up the cornet at the age of five, switching to the piano five years later. However, he went to university to study physics, before changing to composition. After graduating he moved to Sydney and worked as a freelance pianist and composer. Before long he had become prominent in Australia as a composer for dance, and in fact has written 25 scores of that type.
在我们的节日最后一位作品要被展示的澳大利亚作曲家是Carl Vine。他生于1954年,和Liza Lim一样是生于澳大利亚西部的珀斯。他五岁的时候学习短号,五年之后换成了学钢琴。然而,他上大学的时候学的是物理,在转到作曲艺术之前。在毕业之后他搬到了悉尼,作为自由职业的钢琴家和作曲家。不久之后他成为了澳大利亚非常出名的舞曲作家,其实他写了25曲那种类型的曲子。
In our third concert, Vine will be represented by his music for the flag hand-over ceremony of the Olympics held in 1996. This seven-minute orchestral piece was of course heard by millions of people worldwide, and we'll hear it alongside works written by British composers Edward Elgar and, more recently, Thomas Adès.
在我们第三场演奏会,会演奏Vine在1996年奥运会火炬传递仪式当时的曲子。这曲七分钟的管弦乐作品被全世界亿万人听到,除此之外,我们还会听到英国作家Edward Elgar以及年代更近的Thomas Ades两位作曲家的作品。
