Chen gang, who appeared on the scene in a " Hermes red" suit, conveyed the soul of the Shanghai school culture with elegant and popular music. Reporting time: may 07, 2018 Source of report: Wen hui " years and splendor - special concert of Chen gang's works" was played at the concert hall of Shanghai symphony orchestra on the evening of may 6. The " red violin" selection, " Lu ma's monologue" piano recital, the oboe concerto " Kumar" and the violin concerto " Wang zhaojun" outline Chen gang's adherence to the " Shanghai style" with notes. the world's first opera trio embodies the composer's eclectic creative philosophy. Chen gang, a professor at Shanghai conservatory of music, won the golden bell award last year for " music artist for life achievement." he said in an interview with Wen hui before the performance, " after winning the award, I want to use a concert as a response to this honor. These music will also express my understanding of the culture of the Shanghai school: haina baichuan, the integration of Chinese and western cultures, and the common appreciation of elegance and customs. ” Piano recitation: " Lu ma's monologue" ( selected from Cao Yu's drama thunderstorm ) recitation: Cao lei piano: Chen gang During the performance, Chen gang appeared in a suit of " Hermes red" color, which also echoed many of his music works. " composers should listen to the times and the audience. The years are sentimental and the youth is infinite. I hope to write new youth in the new years. " said the 83 - year - old composer at the curtain call. After the performance, IP kwok - hui, head of the music composition department of Shanghai conservatory of music, told reporters, " teacher Chen gang's music contains feelings for beauty and also permeates the characteristics of Shanghai school culture and traditional Chinese music culture. ” It is worth mentioning that Chen gang personally designed the cover of this concert program book. " I wrote the words' years and youth' and chose' Hermes red', which is slightly orange in color. it represents a life full of bright colors in my heart. " this composer feels that he will always be trendy and fashionable, and will turn artistic life into a" course of beauty " of seeking, discovering, creating, defending and inheriting beauty. Common appreciation of elegance and customs enables more people to understand and like " Shanghai style" As one of the composers of the violin concerto " butterfly lovers" ( hereinafter referred to as " Liang Zhu" ), Chen gang said that Shanghai's eclectic urban cultural characteristics gave birth to such a work which combines the tune of yue opera with western symphony and has been playing around the world for nearly 60 years. So, how can contemporary writers and artists communicate the vigor and vitality of Shanghai through music? Chen gang believes that one of the major characteristics of Shanghai school culture in music creation is that it dares to try different things and then merges new ideas with creative attitudes. This needs to have an international perspective and a forward-looking vision, and to combine the contents of ancient and modern China and foreign countries. However, the bigger issue before the creators now is how to achieve common appreciation of elegance and customs so that different interesting audiences can like and understand it. Chen gang's father Chen Gexin created the popular song rose I love you in Shanghai and the modern song spring flower autumn moon when. " it is not difficult for some people to understand a piece of music because it is especially elegant to write, and it is more convenient to do it in a vulgar way. However, it is not so easy to make people of different ages, identities and educational levels accept it. Father wrote many songs and Liang Zhu did it. Chen gang said that the emotion conveyed by the literature and art works nurtured by the Shanghai school culture is very exquisite, refined and refined, which may also be one of the secrets of " Liang Zhu" to impress countless people. For decades, Chen gang has been exploring how to write the music of " haina baichuan, integration of Chinese and western cultures, elegance and common appreciation". For example, in Liang Zhu, the composer organically combines national elements with symphony narrative methods. The entire work uses a standard orchestra, with the exception of the tambourine instrument. Chen gang said: " in the paragraph of" resisting marriage ", the percussion instruments in the orchestra are not enough to express the emotional intensity of" shouting everyday should not be done, calling the ground is not effective ". they have to be beaten into the hearts of the audience with tambourines. ” Later, Chen gang wrote the violin concerto Wang zhaojun. The work also combines the Chinese national sentiment and contemporary composition skills. one piece of music depicts Zhao jun in the ice and snow through the pipa, missing his native land and loving his new home. " nationalized music has its own characteristics and limitations. if it is to be combined with symphonies, it must not be copied mechanically. ” Accept everything and get creative inspiration from traditional operas Apart from violin concertos or solos such as " Liang Zhu," " Wang zhaojun," " morning in Miao Ling," " golden mantelpiece," " sunshine shining on tashkurgan," Chen gang also wrote China's first harp soloist, " fishing boat singing night," the first oboe concerto, " Kumar," symphonic poems, chorus, and other works. In recent years, his creative steps have not stopped. for example, the series of " opera style trio" - such as the Kunqu style trio " dream fright" and the yueju style trio " sister Lin falling from the sky" combine opera with piano and violin. It is not only Chen gang's uninterrupted efforts but also his high hopes for young composers that how to accept everything, especially to continue to obtain creative inspiration from the broad and profound operas. " the violin concerto" Liang Zhu " uses the tune of yue opera with the same name, and the development of yue opera is closely linked to Shanghai's historical context. " Kunqu opera, Peking opera and other operas can sing all over the country and even go to the world. Shanghai is also inseparable from the big stage. At present, Chen gang's creative tentacles have extended to Kunqu opera, yue opera, pingtan opera and other operas. in the future, he also plans to compose music inspired by Huai opera. " I hope that more musicians can be mobilized to write works that draw nourishment from operas. ” Over the years, Chen gang has also devoted himself to promoting the Shanghai school culture through various forms. He has compiled and published several albums and records such as " Shanghai old song classic", " Shanghai lingering sound" and " modern Shanghai". The " Koehler door culture salon" established by him regularly introduces the haipai culture to the public in a special format. Chen gang said: " it is the responsibility of me and the musicians who live in this land to continue to focus on Shanghai's history, explore the context of Shanghai and present Shanghai culture to the world in the artistic language of music. ” Author: Jiang Fang Editor: Jiang Fang Camera: zuzhong

In the special era when the United States was destroyed, he used such music to defend and promote the United States. Then came Lu ma's monologue, which was an accompaniment by Qin Yi, who played Lu ma in the 1984 movie thunderstorm, invited Chen gang to write. Chen gang spent the whole night writing a piece of music. accompanied by this piece of music, Lu ma's affectionate confession was full of strength, such as crying. The voice artist Cao lei performed this monologue at yesterday's concert. Cao lei's father is a well-known writer and reporter Mr. Cao Juren. when Cao lei was 8 years old, his father bought back many plays, including Cao Yu's thunderstorm, so his father and daughter played opposite plays at home. his father acted as Zhou servant garden and Cao lei, 8, read Lu ma's lines. Exactly 70 years later, Cao lei continued his love affair with Lu ma on this stage. The " opera style trio" was a big surprise at the concert.

The performer is Peter Cooper, an American oboe player. this work has very high demands on the performer. there were no musicians in China who could play this kind of music in those days. Now that more than 30 years have passed, the level of Chinese oboe performance has greatly improved and the audience is growing. This piece was performed yesterday by Cheng Yue, principal oboe and oboist of the Shanghai philharmonic orchestra. he was also the fellow teacher of the first performer Peter Cooper. The close cooperation between Cheng Yue and Zhang Liang's Shanghai philharmonic orchestra seems to make people see the wonderful scenery on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau. The last piece of the concert was violin concerto " Wang zhaojun", yes, there was no " Liang Zhu". Perhaps many audiences will regret, how can Chen gang's concert not have " Liang Zhu"? Indeed, this work is so classic that when it comes to Chen gang's association and " Liang Zhu", but after listening to yesterday's concert, you will find that in addition to " Liang Zhu," he has many excellent classic works. As the host Yan Hua said, " this does not seem to be the incompleteness of" Liang Zhu ". in fact, we have seen a more complete Chen gang. ” " oriental paganini" Huang Mengla and young pipa performer Xie yudan performed the violin concerto " Wang zhaojun" with the Shanghai philharmonic orchestra. this is also the symphony created by Chen gang based on the story characters in Chinese traditional culture and is called " companion piece" of " Liang Zhu".

This outstanding composer is always fashionable and trendy. he has turned artistic life into a " course of beauty" of seeking, discovering, creating, defending and inheriting beauty. At the end of the concert, the host Yan Hua sighed with emotion: " today's concert is called' years and youth', youth is the most beautiful period of life. because of its beauty, it is short - lived. However, through teacher Chen gang's music and life course, let's ask: who said " fanghua in a flash"? Every stage and season of Mr. Chen is fanghua. he changed fanghua from a period of time to a state, making us believe that fanghua can be around as often as beautiful music. this is what Mr. Chen gang brought us' years of fanghua'! ” Let's find our first thoughts through the wonderful music of miss Chen and through the cultural feelings of " Koehler door". let's feel the beauty of youth, art and life!

Read Me | Chen Gang: My "Color" is a "bright color"
Not long ago, Li Qianuang, member of China Federation Literary Party Committee and vice chairman and his party made a special trip to Shanghai Conservatory of Music and presented "Lifetime Achievement Music Artist" to Chen Gang, 82 year-old famous composer and one of the creators of the violin concerto "Butterfly Lovers". Chen Gang regards the award as a gift to the 90th birthday of the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. "The artist must have an innocence, the arts will never cease, inherit the Toshin tradition, inherit the Shanghai culture, keep up with the new era, maintain a young heart and make new contributions," he said in the award-winning testimony. Forever young Son of the Son, which may be regarded as a key word to interpret Chen Gang, but also Chen Gang's music to bring the greatest feeling - so bright, so warm, so romantic, then up, with the China Music Association Honorary Chairman Zhao Ji-ping's words, "Chen Gang's youthful atmosphere always infected with all the people." What makes Chen Gang become Chen Gang? The composer writes in his dream pen - My "color" is a "bright color" Composers often have his favorite color and tone. Like Rachmaninoff, he said: "I am biased in melancholy and joyful." Mozart's life is always happy and innocent despite all sorts of different ups and downs. This is the tone of each composer's life, his "dominant color" or "true color." My "color" is a "bright color." You look at my piano room, my decoration, my decorations, my lights are not very warm and bright? I will not play deep, do not love to get the concept, do not like to use mahogany furniture to create a depressing, "antique" atmosphere. I think my "natural" is very modern, very bright, very progressive, it is my birthright background of life. "Ocean" and "mixed" is my gene When we talk about life, we need to talk about genes, speaking of blood and anthropology. While many of us theorists often analyze the writers and works only from the perspective of history and sociology, this interpretation often falls into the mud of mechanical materialism and vulgar sociology in a particular political context in. Few people study the writer and the work from the life individual, that is, from an anthropological point of view. However, it is very important for artistic creation to study its gene of life and its cultural genetics. Because, from the genes can be found in the blood and context heritage, which is I always my creation and my father's creation as the same blood and context of the child's sake. Over the years, I have gradually noticed an unavoidable phenomenon: why is my father and my own work very different from the music written by contemporary composers on the same subjects, genres and materials? Is it because of the difference between life genes and cultural genes? Take my father, his genes in addition to the Han lineage there are Indian descent. My great-grandfather was an Indian. He was like an alien drift-bottle. He moved from India to Shanghai, married my great-grandmother, a Shanghai Pudong, and then came to fruition and gave birth to a mixed-race grandfather. The grandfather, after marrying her grandmother, one of the four beautiful women in Hangzhou, gave birth to my father, a fourth-Indian father. My father married a Hui girl, gave birth to a more mixed me. This is my life gene. Shanghai's Shanghai style culture. It is essentially a kind of immigrant culture, mixed culture. Because the "gene mutation" that took place since the opening of Shanghai and the influx of foreign cultures and the integration with the original Wu and Yue cultures essentially changed the farming civilization of China for thousands of years and created a new culture That is urban culture. Shanghai is the earliest birthplace of Chinese urban culture. One of the most obvious features of Shanghai-style culture rooted in the peculiar soil of the "Ten Mile Western Market" is that it is a common feature shared by my father and my work One word - "foreign"! If you want to add a word, that is "mixed." Mixed, mix and match, mixed ...... "Ocean" and "mixed" is the "sea culture" of the two characteristics. "Foreign" is not a foreign language, blindly Westernization, but to stand in the forefront of the times, with a large international perspective to review and reorganization of our traditional culture based on farming civilization. "Mix" is not a rigid patchwork and matchmaking, but an organic combination of two. This constitutes my cultural gene. Looking at my father and my work, many of these features. People always yearn for what they want People often ask me a few questions. The first question is: "Chen Gang, why do you write so many violin songs, is not a soft spot for the violin you? I said: "No, that's what people write to me!" "Butterfly Lovers" asked me to write in the school. "The Red Violin" was written by Pan Yinlin. "Wang Zhaojun" "Dream of Red Mansions" is Xue Wei about me to write. Anyway, I was passive creation. " In fact, too. Fate joke with people, you obviously want to open the door, but he opened another window for you. Life is a dream. When I was young, I love to do "literary dreams," and when I was thirteen, I even wrote a novel "Back of a Long Leg Comes." The revolution of 1949 brought me into a utopian "revolutionary dream" before I accidentally transferred to the art troupe and entered the music hall to start a "musical dream." Where can I think of this life even with violins will be so indissoluble bound! The second question is: "Chen Gang, your violin must be pulled well?" "Where! I will not play the violin, I really will not, even the string will not pull it!" Then there is the third question: "So, did you go to Miaoling when writing" Morning Miaoling? "" No. "(No, then later). "Have you been to Tashkurgan in Xinjiang when you wrote the sun shining on Taxkorgan?" "No, it has not been done so far." Often, there are signs of mechanical materialism and vulgar sociology in our thinking method, always thinking of "where to write where and experience what to write." In fact, Xian Xinghai wrote the "Yellow River" but never visited the Yellow River. What he wrote is not a river, but a spirit, a kind of misery and struggle spirit of the Chinese nation. He Linting wrote the song "Guerrillas," but he has not been to the guerrillas, but he has a wealth of combat experience, he can in the creation of "empathy" and "creative" it! There is a fourth question. "Chen Gang, how could you make such a bright voice in such a dark Cultural Revolution era?" The "Cultural Revolution" is a ruthless era, but it is also a particularly emotional era. Because of ruthless, so in particular need lyric. Because of the darkness, I particularly look forward to bright colors and longing for "golden" "morning" and "sunshine" because this is the nature of human nature. Shostakovitch made a very profound remark when he said: "Music is the last consolation and final refuge." He has lived with fear and will feel "taken away" one day. That was the case at that time, and at any moment could be "taken away" by doom, leaving us with only the music of our hearts - our "ultimate comfort" and "ultimate refuge." However, for a composer, merely "comfort" and "asylum" are not enough. Because of the special power and beauty of music, it is more necessary and better to talk, vent and erupt. People always yearn for and write what they aspire to. In that era, because there is no gold, so special advocate of gold; because there is no morning, so look forward to the morning; because there is no sunshine, so the sun is very much needed. I think this may be the historical opportunity and psychological background of the birthplace of the Golden Stove, Morning Miao Ridge and the Sun Shines on the Taxoid, and why these works can bring hope and comfort to the people of that era. Ten years after the reason is still circulated in the Chinese and foreign music scene. Here, I remembered Tagore's poem: "Your burden will become a gift, and your sufferings will light up your path." Always burning, always dreaming When I came to Hong Kong from the United States back to Shanghai in 1981, a British reporter from the South China Morning Post interviewed me and published a full-page report. After listening to my experience in the "Cultural Revolution", he said that I was like a phoenix flying out of the rubble, leaving no trace of wounds on him. This is something incomprehensible. In fact, sometimes I can not understand myself, why I can "without scar" to "fly"? Maybe because there is a fire in my life genes and cultural genes, I always want to burn, burn, and keep burning. Maybe it is because I am a "no-man's repentant" person, always dreaming, dreaming, a dream shattered, and then another dream, which may be called "endless dreams"! "Dream of Literature" "Dream of Revolution" "Dream of Music", after three dreams, what I now want to do and are doing is the fourth dream - "Shanghai Dream". Because I am a child of Shanghai and a successor of Shanghai Culture. I should make due contributions to this city where I live and support my mother. History has given me a lot, I should be worthy of history. In the past two years, I organized a cultural salon called Koehler with friends from a number of cultural circles. I wanted to better sort out my thoughts through various cultural fields such as music, painting, film and drama And heritage Shanghai culture. A newspaper in Shanghai introduced his father in three pages in the column entitled "Sea Celebrities." The topic is very long and very special: "Chen Gexin, we have lost him 50 years, and now get it back a bit." What we are doing now is looking for Shanghai. We should retrieve the soul and taste of Shanghai a century ago and rejuvenate the earliest and most mature and brilliant urban culture in China - Shanghai Culture. This is our historical responsibility, that is, what Jacques Derrida said: "Evoke memory arouses responsibility." We can not forget the past, lose the fundamental, and only find history to find ourselves.

Violinist Piyankovsky wrote to him: "I have heard many works of Chinese composers, but none of them give me the feeling of being as brilliant as your music. Create history, and my heart is so close to the soul of your music. " Mr. Chen Gang also created a number of works such as symphonic poem, chorus and chamber music. His first Chinese oboe concerto 【Huoma】 is skillfully integrated with rich national charm and modern composer skills. Mr. Chen Gang is a professor of composition at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. He has been included in more than a dozen of "Who's Who in the World," and received the "Honor Certificate in International Culture" and the "Soka Mo Hollywood Awards." Mr. Chen Gang is also an excellent essayist, author of [black romance] [three ears to listen to music] [butterflies in the butterfly] anthology. The following is [headlines today] Chen Gang teacher's personal interview: Reporter: You bring "Butterfly Lovers" get married in Shenzhen, Shenzhen Bay Association, is based on what kind of opportunity, this event will bring members how to share? Mr. Chen Gang: First of all, special thanks go to Xu Xia, Director of Shenzhen Grand Theater for his invitation to let me come to Shenzhen Bay Club to hold this exchange event with everyone with "Liangzhu" as the medium. Both Shenzhen and Shanghai are pearl cities in China, and the two cities are particularly clearly feeling the pulse of the times. There is a saying that there is a place of sunshine there is Chinese, where there are Chinese people have "Butterfly Lovers", the deep bay will get married, I also hope to stand in this forefront of cities, music and our outstanding city character dialogue to share creative Think, share the beauty of art. Reporter: During your study, you and your cooperation with Ho Zhanhao violin concerto "Butterfly Lovers" world-renowned music, "Butterfly Lovers" means to you what? How do you think about its classic meaning? Mr. Chen Gang: When we created "Butterfly Lovers" during the period of studying at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music in 1958, I was 24 years old and Ho Zhanhao was 26 years old. "Butterfly Lovers" is now almost a Koshien, has experienced the changes in the times are still popular with people, different people, "Butterfly Lovers" also have different interpretations and deductions, this is very interesting thing. For me, "Butterfly Lovers" is a beautiful butterfly dream, but also a beautiful symphonic dream. It is well-known that "Liang Zhu"'s story background relies on a traditional Chinese love story, but we give music soul through creation, which carries people's pursuit of love and gives people an imagination of a better life in a special era, The Chinese-style romantic spirit, so many Chinese people become the classic. Reporter: Along the way, what do you think is the birth of the classic "Liang Zhu" era? Mr. Chen Gang: The birth of "Butterfly Lovers" has three aspects: the first call from the times. Every country and every age needs to have its own representative voice. The People's Republic of China was born in 1949 and she deserves to have her own music. The second "Butterfly Lovers" is Lin Sister who fell from heaven. It is an accidental necessity. On the one hand, the works inherit the well-known folklore in China and show the people's pursuit and celebration of immortal love. On the other hand, Militia, big steelmaking, three red flags of the fanatical era. Special thanks to Meng Bo, party secretary of the Conservatory of Music at the time, who locked Liang's gift as a gift with "a circle" and "romanticism" with "a little" and "one" The "poor origin of Chen Gang," the pressure, and ultimately have our classic birth. Reporter: Why was "Butterfly Lovers" presented in the form of a violin concerto instead of a concerto for Chinese folk music? Mr. Chen Gang: "Butterfly Lovers" is a blend of Chinese and Western cultures. Liang Zhu was born in Shanghai rather than other cities, in fact, fine study is also a deep reason. Shanghai is an international metropolis. Shanghai context and background also allow us to consider creating a common exchange platform for dialogue with the world at the time of writing. Before the proposition of love that can be understood by all mankind, we must also choose a world accepted Carrier, which is why we write "Butterfly Lovers" as violin concerto instead of erhu concerto. Reporter: "Butterfly Lovers", you have also created a series of works of red violin and violin concerto "Wang Zhaojun." Someone once said that "Butterfly Lovers" are innocent, red violins are passionate, "Wang Zhaojun" is affectionate, and Chen Gang's life does not create a "love" word. What is your specific interpretation of the above creation? Mr. Chen Gang: From a creative perspective, the music is lyrical. Human feelings are common, love is the root of human beings, human beings, and music is the best medium to communicate emotions. In addition, the music is the experience of the use of love, the birth of a track, once for the creation, the second play, the third is to listen, but music gives each experience, different people's experience is different; then the music is "love As Li Bai once referred to the moon in more than 100 poems, but each has different artistic conceptions, just as listening to Liangzhu at different times feels different, so good music The work must be full of affection, and this is why good works resonate.

People | Chen Gang: Beauty is my religion
Text | Wu Yue Chen Xu Shanghai in November in the towering Maple Leaf gradually cool, the eleventh China Music Awards for the positive was founded 90 years of Shanghai Conservatory of Music delivered a warm gift - Chen Gang, only Dan Dolma two The teacher won the title of "Lifetime Achievement Music Artist". Chen Gang said: "This is not so much to grant my personal awards, as it is to give the sound of the hospital built 90 years gift .1955 admitted to the tone, so far has a Jia Zi time. Cai Yuanpei, Dean of 'Aesthetic Education on behalf of Religion' concept, the United States is the banner of Shangyin, but also my ideal of lifelong pursuit of life .Shanghai Conservatory of Music is my fertile ground for growth, I will not forget the beginning of heart, hold high the banner of the United States. " Music "beauty" Lao Tzu said: "It is fair to say that it is very proper." There is also a saying in the West that "at the end of a language, the music is sounded." The "beauty" of music is the most formless of all art forms and the most authentic pure. Born in the music family Chen Gang's life to pursue the highest "beauty" as their own creative beliefs. In 1955, he was admitted to the Shanghai Conservatory of Music composer. During the academic period, music expert Arzavanov from the Soviet Union for the first time to their class, after entering the classroom did not say a word, went straight to the piano playing Rachmaninoff "Piano Concerto No. 2" . After the bullet finished, he raised his head and said with excitement to the students below: "How beautiful!" At this moment, the 20-year-old Chen Gang was unforgettable. From then on, he determined to continuously explore the "beauty" in his heart and the "beauty" of mankind with the "soul language" of music. In the winter of 1958, Chen Gang and He Zhanhao co-authored the first violin concerto "Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai" in China. The following year, the first work premiered at Shanghai Grand Theater, and Yu Li-na was a violin solo artist. Let Chen Gang unforgettablely, on July 2, 1997, the second day after Hong Kong's return, the Hollywood Bowl Amphitheater in the United States played "Butterfly Lovers." At the beginning of the music, the soloist Lü Si-qing did not raise his bows yet. There was a warm applause from the thousands of overseas Chinese who had heard the prizes. The applause gathered together and echoed in the valley around the stage as if the waves had been drained wave. After the show ended, an overseas Chinese in Malaysia said to him: "Where there is the sun there is a Chinese, where there is a Chinese there is a" wish "!" Why is "Liangzhu" successful and occupies so important in the hearts of countless Chinese? significance? Chen Gang explained: "Because it is not just a piece of music, but a symbol of the Chinese people, a beautiful symbol." If "Butterfly Lovers" is like a glow rising from the east and illuminates the stage of the world, then a group of "red violins" selections created in the 1970s is like a spring breeze blowing into an ordinary household Family. Later in the "Cultural Revolution", Chen Gang wrote a series of beautiful and versatile violin solos with national rhyme, "Sun Shines on Taschurgan," and then went on to spread like wildfire. "The composer is doing? The composer is no sunshine to write the sunshine, did not write the morning morning, no gold to write gold." At that time, Chen Gang has not been to Xinjiang and Guizhou, his focus is not national music itself, But to write out the unquenchable pursuit of "beauty" in the heart and safeguard the dignity of "beauty." Broad "beauty" Looking back at modern history, we can easily find out the emergence of Chen Gang is inevitable. In 1843, Shanghai opened the port, Britain, the United States and France have formed loan and extended many times until 1945, all rented back in this land on the civilization of China and the West after centuries of struggle and integration, which gave birth to a unique style of the sea culture. The essence of the Shanghai culture, summed up, that is, "Heiner rivers", all good things for others, can be used for what I used. As a result, Chen Gang's father, Chen Gexin, wrote the pop song "Rose Rose I Love You" and the first modern song "Spring Flower Autumn Moon" in Shanghai, China's first popular world. His alma mater National Institute of Music (first name of the National Conservatory of Music) as China's first independent higher education school was established in Shanghai. In this way, only Chen Gang. Speaking of genealogy, Chen Gang said with a smile: "My great-grandfather was an Indian, he came to Shanghai to marry a Chinese wife and Pudong, my mother is a Hui, and they are just like Shanghai, a product of mixed blood. In the unity of. "Such a family ecology may seem quite unusual today, but at the time of Shanghai is not uncommon. The family of Chen Gang is a microcosm of this immigrant city in terms of blood and culture. Richer than the blood is Xuemai. Chen Gang compared the national audio-visual system of that year to "the United Nations." "My teacher Ding Shande returned from studying in France. He was a student of Aonig, a member of the Six-member Group, representing the French system. My vocal teacher Sang Tong, Yang and stone are Frankel's students, he is also my father's teacher, Frankel is a Schoenberg student, and his other teacher Tan Xiaolin is Hintmite's students, so it is representative of Germany and Austria System of this line; my work analysis teacher Arzavanov is the Soviet Union, his teacher is 斯科里布科夫, 斯科里布科夫 teacher is Taniyeifu, Taniyev's teacher Is Tchaikovsky, on behalf of the Soviet Union this line; He Luting Ting got a lot of folk artists, is China this line. "This is surprisingly traceable inadvertently answered a lot of questions: why the melodramatic tune As the basis of "Butterfly Lovers" can get the world's appreciation? Why is the first batch of excellent Chinese art music was born in Shanghai rather than other places? Chen Gang's success thanks to the inclusive Shanghai school culture, he not only proud, but also consciously inherit and spread this culture. He founded the Koehler Culture Salon and brought together a group of people who love the culture of Shanghai to conduct extensive and in-depth discussions on the topic of culture and the arts. He also made socialization through such means as network platform and series publication, and promoted the construction of urban spiritual civilization. Practice the "beauty" Chinese people stress "words for the heart, the book for the heart painting." Chen Gang wrote "beauty" with musical notes and practiced "beauty" personally. Wu Guanzhong, an artist, said: "Today there are not many illiterates in China, but many are in the United States, and more terrible than illiteracy is aesthetically blind." Chen Gang agrees with this view and does not hide his attitude towards the current trend of cultural popularization . With the rapid development of economy in contemporary China, towering high-rise buildings have been built in a very short period of time. Engineering project so, art can it? Chen Gang was denied. In his opinion, just as a mother must have her "childbirth in October", art development has its own laws and should be respected by the people today. The contemporary Peking Opera has been repeatedly revised and improved to achieve the goal of "ten years of grinding a drama," and it still plays as usual. If it is like creating a house, it often produces quick-moving works. "The criteria we judge are very simple and see who lives for a long time. Art is something that lives longer than a writer." Today, the 82-year-old Chen Gang looks back on his past memories and earnestly says after decades of hard work: "We artists should inherit beauty, spread beauty, and defend the beauty and make beautiful messengers." He remembered what Cai Yuanpei published in 1917, "Pro and save before the death of the" science save the country, aesthetics to save the country "- in his heart, this is the soul of the sound above. When asked what his hopes are for this generation of young people, Chen Gang said: "Of course, we often make innovations, of course, it is good, but more importantly, we have to find our roots, our souls, and not blindly Run forward. "

Shangyin | Composer Chen Gang: Beauty is my faith
The year-end Shanghai gradually became cooler in the towering Maple Leaf. The 11th Chinese Musical Gold Bell Award, which came out shortly before, gave a warm gift to the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, Tone Chen Gang, only Dan Dolma won the title of "lifelong achievement music artist". China Federation of Literature, Chinese Musicians Association sent a special trip came to our hospital, Professor Chen Gang composer awarded "lifetime achievement music artist" certificate. Chen Gang said: This is not so much the award of my personal award, as it is to give the sound 90 birthday gift. In 1955 admitted to the tone, so far there is a Jia Zi time. At the beginning of the foundation, Shangyin upholds Cai Yuanpei's dean's idea of "aesthetics education on behalf of religion." The United States is the banner of Shangyin. It is also an ideal of my life and a lifelong pursuit of career. Shanghai Conservatory of Music is a fertile ground for my growth, I will never forget the heart, hold high the banner of the United States. The artist must cherish an innocent child. Art will never cease. Inheriting the tradition of Shangyin, it will inherit the culture of the Shanghai clique, keep up with the new era, maintain a young heart and make new contributions. Music "beauty" Lao Tzu said: "It is fair to say that it is very good." There is also a saying in the West that "at the end of a language, the music is sounded." The "beauty" of music is the most formless of all art forms and the most authentic pure. Born in the music family Chen Gang's life to pursue the highest "beauty" as their own creative beliefs. In 1955, Chen Gang admitted to the sound system. During the study period, the music expert Arzavanov from the Soviet Union first gave them classes. After entering the classroom, facing the audience a Chinese student, he did not say a word, went straight to the piano and started Playing Rachmaninoff "Piano Concerto No. 2". After the bullet finished, he raised his head and said excitedly to the students below: "How beautiful!" At this moment, the 20-year-old Chen Gang was unforgettable. From then on, he determined to continuously explore the "beauty" in his heart and the "beauty" of mankind with the "soul language" of music. The winter of 1958, two Shangsheng young students Ho Zhanhao, Chen Gang co-authored China's first world-renowned violin concerto "Butterfly Lovers." The following year, the first work premiered at Shanghai Grand Theater, and was performed by violin soloist Yu Li-na from Shangyou. Let Chen Gang unforgettablely, on July 2, 1997, the second day after Hong Kong's return, the Hollywood Bowl Amphitheater in the United States played "Butterfly Lovers." At the beginning of the music, the soloist Lü Si-qing did not raise his bows yet. There was a warm applause from the thousands of overseas Chinese who had heard the prizes. The applause gathered together and echoed in the valley around the stage as if the waves had been drained wave. After the show ended, an overseas Chinese in Malaysia said to him: "Where there is a sun there is a Chinese, where there is a place where there is a Chinese," Liangzhu! "" Why did Liangzhu succeed and occupy such an important place in the hearts of countless Chinese? significance? Chen Gang explained: "Because it is not just a piece of music, but a symbol of the Chinese people and a symbol of beauty." If "Butterfly Lovers" is like a glow rising from the east and illuminates the stage of the world, then a group of "red violins" songs written in the 1970s is like a spring breeze blowing into a household habit People's home. In the late "Cultural Revolution", the public desperately needed spiritual comfort, while a violin boom came into being. Chen Gang wrote a series of beautiful and versatile violin solos with a variety of national rhythms, "Sunshine shines on the Taxkorgan," and then sent his hope to the people in that dark age. I wrote Sunshine in the absence of sunshine. I wrote "Morning Miaoling" in the absence of a morning; I wrote a "golden hearth" in the absence of gold. What is the composer doing? The composer wrote the sun without sunlight, morning without morning, golden without gold. "At that time, Chen Gang had not been to Xinjiang and Guizhou. His focus was not on the national music itself, but on writing the unquenchable pursuit of" beauty "in the heart and safeguarding the dignity of" beauty. " Chen Gang regards "beauty" as the highest standard of measuring the value of music and dissatisfaction with the overall appearance of seeking new and different ideas for modern music. In 1981, Chen Gang visited Illinois in the United States. At a forum after the conclusion of a modern work concert, he expressed his own opinions in a clear-cut manner: "First, your performance has greatly expanded the palette of music that would not have been needed, including noise and specific music Second, it is difficult for me to hear the voice of people in your music. All I hear is the sound of the sound, the sound of the person behind the sound. Hard to hear; Third, there is a reception aesthetics in our music aesthetics, music is a signal, as in other cultures, is to have feedback, or why I send this signal? But many modern music neither feedback nor request You feedback. " Chen Gang's view of modern music nearly 40 years ago is still worth noting in the heart of many current new works. Looking back at modern history, we can easily find out the emergence of Chen Gang is inevitable. In 1843, the concessions of Shanghai, Britain, the United States and France were successively formed and expanded many times until all the concessions were returned in 1945. After years of struggle and integration, Chinese and Western civilizations in this land gave birth to a unique style of Shanghai culture. The essence of the Shanghai culture, summed up, that is, "Heiner rivers", all good things for others, can be used for what I used. As a result, Chen Gang's father, Chen Gexin, wrote the pop song "Rose I Love You" and the first modern song "Spring Flower Autumn Moon" in Shanghai, China's first popular world. His alma mater, (The first name of the National Conservatory of Music) as China's first independent higher education school was established in Shanghai. In this way, only Chen Gang. Speaking of genealogy, Chen Gang said with a smile: "My great-grandfather was an Indian, he came to Shanghai to marry a Chinese wife and Pudong, my mother is a Hui, and they are just like Shanghai, a product of mixed blood. In the unity of. "Such a family ecology may seem quite unusual today, but at the time of Shanghai is not uncommon. The family of Chen Gang is a microcosm of this immigrant city in terms of blood and culture. Richer than the blood is Xuemai. Chen Gang compared the national audio-visual system of that year to "the United Nations." "My teacher Ding Shande returned from studying in France. He was a student of Aonig, a member of the Six-member Group, representing the French system.

This amazing traceability seems to inadvertently answer many questions: Why is the "Butterfly Lovers" based on Yue Opera tunes able to gain worldwide appreciation? Why is the first batch of excellent Chinese art music was born in Shanghai rather than other places? ... Chen Gang's success thanks to the inclusive Shanghai school culture, he not only proud, but also consciously inherit and spread this culture. He founded the Koehler Culture Salon and brought together a group of people who love the culture of Shanghai to conduct extensive and in-depth discussions on the topic of culture and the arts. He also made socialization through such means as network platform and series publication, and promoted the construction of urban spiritual civilization. Practice the "beauty" Chinese people stress "words for the heart, the book for the heart painting." Chen Gang wrote "beauty" with musical notes and practiced "beauty" personally. At the time of founding of new China, Chen Gang was only 14 years old. With the false report of 4 years old, he could join the army and enter the revolutionary ranks. He said that when participating in the revolutionary work at the time, the idea was very simple. It was for the purpose of revolutionizing the destiny of the motherland and building a beautiful new China. In Chen Gang's life, there have been some gloomy time. "Breaking the Four Olds", the recordings of the Tone teacher were all cracked and handed down, and the score was also sold in six cents pillars. However, Chen Gang still kept a slow-moving record privately: Mahler "The Fourth Symphony song". Listening to the slow movement, he told himself: "The concert is back." Supporting Chen Gang through the dark years is "beauty." Perhaps from the beginning, "beauty" has changed from a creative belief to a living faith. Wu Guanzhong, a famous painter, said: "There are not many illiterates in China today, but many are blinded and are even more terrible than illiteracy." Chen Gang agrees with this view and does not hide his own current trends in the cultural circles attitude. With the rapid development of economy in contemporary China, towering high-rise buildings have been built in a very short period of time. Engineering project so, art can it? Chen Gang was denied. In his opinion, just as a mother must have her "childbirth in October", art development has its own laws and should be respected by the people today. Repeatedly modified the model opera that year, excellence, can be described as "a decade of grinding drama," still played constantly; and if the same as building a house of art, you often produce fast-moving works. "The criteria we judge are very simple, and to see who lives for a long time, art is something that lives longer than the writer," said Chen Gang. Today, the 82-year-old Chen Gang looks back on his past memories. After decades of hard work, he solemnly said: "Our artists should inherit the beauty, spread the beauty, and defend the beautiful and beautiful messengers." He never forget the "saving the nation by science, saving the nation by science" proposed by Cai Yuanpei in 1917 when he published the book entitled "Aesthetic Education for Religion" and just before his death. In his mind, this is the soul of the sounding officer. When asked finally what hope this generation of young people have, Chen Gang said: "Of course, we often make innovations, of course, it is good, but more importantly, we must find our roots and our souls, and do not blindly Run forward.

Shanghai Shanghai cultural messenger messenger Chen Gang
When I walked into Shanghai's "gate" to the Bund, the first thing I heard about the sirens on the Huangpu River and the bell sounded by the Customs bell was the sound of Shanghai, the voice of history and the voice of the world. The majestic and graceful skyline, which is composed of the Expo Complex, shows the glorious image of Shanghai as a modern cosmopolitan city. According to Daniel Bell, a famous American scholar, "a city is not only a place, but also a state of mind and a symbol of a unique way of life." Shanghai is a blessed place for Chinese feng shui not only to make ancient China miraculously The emergence of the bustling "Oriental Wall" and the rich Oriental "Paris of the Orient", but also gave birth to China's urban culture - Shanghai culture, gave birth to China's first movie, the first symphony orchestra, the first music school and Many other "firsts". Koehler used to be a symbol of Shanghai. Perhaps it was a "mashup" of class, color, classic and club, but after adding an "old" word, Also seems to be more layers of special "authentication." Because, when it comes to "old Koehler," people will think of those who yearned for those elegant and diverse aesthetic taste and exquisite fashion lifestyle "Shanghai gentleman" who. Nowadays, though "Old Koehler" has gradually departed, "Koehler Spirit" has inherited in various new ways and has come to fruition. To this end, to sort out its context, to pursue its charm, at the same time, "Old Koehler" represented by the metropolitan culture relay baton passed on to "Koehler" and "Koehler" who should become the "Sea Red" people's cultural orientation And historical vocation. So, "Koehler door" came into being. Chen Gang and "Koehler" Koehler is a cultural brand and cultural brand that emerged in Shanghai in recent years. Founded in 2011, Chen Gang and Dong Guiming, the general manager of Guidu, the television host Yan Hua and the art critic Lin Mingjie formed a " Troika fish "core, gathered in Shanghai's cultural elite, work together to sort out and promote the culture of Shanghai. From the 1950s violin concerto "Butterfly Lovers" to the "Traditional Rivers" concert concerts in recent years, Chen Gang has been active in Shanghai's cultural arts circles for half a century. Now he is given a new identity - the head of Koehler. Chen Gang said: "Koehler is actually a cultural salon, which is very important to the development of an urban culture, and can be said to be the 'engine' of an urban culture. In Europe, many cultures have their origins in the salon. Of course, these are small, aristocratic forms of activity. "Köhler" is a naturally formed brand activity, and I prefer to call it a 'combination' compared to the 'organization'. The literati in Shanghai were free to call out and Mr. Qian said that in the past Beijing representatives represented the future of Shanghai, such an elegant collection was not intended to study Shanghai's 'antiques' culture but to study futurology and I believe that studying Shanghai Culture is not a regional culture, but can look to the world as a representative of an advanced urban culture. " Chen Gang-sheng in the mid-1930s, childhood coincides with the modern Shanghai's most prosperous Shilianyangchang stage. He has been to follow his father Chen Gexin and Wu Zuguang, Ding Cong and other celebrities to a "four sisters" cafe. "Four Sisters" is a movie directed by Li Qianping in 1942. The four stars are performed jointly by Gong Qiuxia, Chen Qi, Zhang Fan and Chen Juanjuan. Coffee shop in Shanghai Pudong building on the first floor hall, dozens of square table, can accommodate hundreds of people. Chen Gang said: "A lot of inspiration for artistic creation is to talk out! And it is to have cross-boundary and cross-boundary collisions that can spark the spark of art!" Shanghai style culture is all-encompassing, open-minded, tolerant and can try different things With a creative attitude to blend in. Shanghai culture is a mixed culture, symphony and Paragon mixed, that is, Nguyen Phuong Yu and Hollywood mixed. 'Krae' should be a kind of eclectic culture. Koehler culture Over the past eight years, Chen Gang has been actively demonstrating the spread of Shanghai culture in recent years. While telling stories, he summarized the spirit of the Shanghai School while looking for the successors of Shanghai School. Köhler culture salon, is such an attempt to find the Shanghai dream. It is regrettable that, on the one hand, as our society becomes more and more popular, entertainment becomes the mainstream, and the role of culture is no longer a guide but a catered meeting. On the other hand, too many babies in the Shanghai culture have been inundated and are hidden. As a brilliant testimony of the Shanghai culture, Chen Gang and his fellow creators of Koehler all have a desire to find out the successors of the Shanghai culture through chatting, gathering, talking about, and making such a spirit Pass down. Köhler Culture Salon is now receiving more and more attention from the government and the community. One of the major bright spots is that every time there is such a small opening as Hongxiang and Grand Bright, it tells the story of the forgotten Shanghai School legend. And Qin Yi, birch, Liu Guangning, Cao Lei, Tong Zirong, Leung Po Lo and other old artists, but also salon regulars. These elderly people tell their own stories and are still fresh today. Chen Gang remembered the "Koehler" story there are many. "Paramount" the last female jazz player, 88-year-old Yu Minzhao was quivering to the stage, bouncing on the piano, "Rose Rose I love you" touching scene; "Hongxiang" small open gold Mr. personally demonstrated on the stage for the wife to measure the warm scene of the cheongsam 36 points; Bai Xianyong in the "Koehler" stage coincidence young when the "South Model" classmate, astonished wide eyes look; "Father of Monkey King" "The Ballet goddess" Tan Yuanyuan danced in "Keler Gate House" and danced from inside to the wonderful picture on the rooftops; Zhouzhuang's folk artists sincerely used the long section songs to praise the painter Chen Yifei; "90 After the old man Raoping as a beginner piano, played on the piano out of death favorite wife "soul off blue bridge"; dubbing artist Cao Lei recite he wrote to Ingrid Bergman, is also written to his own short poem , Showing the kind of other touched! Also, the writer Cheng Naishan's husband, Yan pure innocent proud smile when talking about the well-designed green house of Hudek; Qin Yi teacher in the "Wang open photo studio" accidentally discovered the relatives Jin Yan and friend Liu Qiong photos Dew surprise, these will give us an unforgettable history and a burst of never-ending fragrance ... ... Koehler is a cultural gateway, dream gate and gateway to Shanghai. Open the door, we will be able to see a rich cultural Jinshan seat. Koehler is a scholarly salon, and the salon is also the engine of a Taiwanese culture. Starting this engine, it is possible to excavate and discover more marine treasures and cultural sprouts, so that different cultures can freely state, exchange, collide and converge here. "Koehler" essence Chen Gang advocated several dimensions in Koehler: Height: "Koehler" has always taken the inheritance and development of all-embracing, blending of Chinese and Western cultures, enlightened wisdom of the city as a starting point, and through the film, cheongsam, Shanghai old songs, art animation and other fields, the image of the development of Shanghai culture and cultural context , Activated its vitality. Accuracy: "fine" and "fine" is an indispensable feature of Shanghai culture, "boutique awareness" is more cultural survival and spread of protection. Koehler has always been guided by the aesthetic education thought of Mr. Cai Yuanpei. Through the representative writers of the Shanghai culture and the products they have created, the elegant aesthetic taste is respected. At the same time, Koehler through its cultural connotation and "five senses" Afternoon tea activities, tea essay, tea party friends, promote exquisite lifestyle. Width: Koehler aims at attracting and uniting cultural elites from all walks of life through cultural "magnetic effects" to sort out and promote Shanghai culture. We must not only strive to inherit and salvage the unique cultural heritage of Shanghai for centuries (such as the production of special film, animation specials, cheongsam specials and harmonica specials), but also focus on the present and the future (such as "Little Kole Concert" , Recommended young talent on the concert). Not only to explore the domain of talent, but also good at retaining stars (such as Tan Yuan Yuan, Bai Xianyong, Siqin Gaowa, French painter and German singer, etc.), to build an international cultural platform. Temperature: The power of culture lies in the culture of people, moving with emotion. Kellerman pays particular attention to the old artists who contributed to the culture of the Shanghai climax. For example, through commemoration of the 8th anniversary of Chen Yifei's death, the 10th anniversary commemorates the messenger of beauty and celebrates Malibu's 100th birthday by praising his outstanding contribution and holding charity through "International Helimage Day" Activities, through the "Jews in Shanghai" activities to promote the international love of love. Koehler also through the "Koehler House", bringing together artists from all walks of life and Koehler door to communicate with each other.
