Literary dream, revolutionary dream, musical dream

When Chen Gang, who was liberated and wished to join the army in Shanghai in that year, changed his age from 14 to 18 years old, he was "mixed in with the revolutionary ranks" and entered the army art troupe, realizing the "dream of revolution." His father is a famous composer Chen Gexin, perhaps Chen Gang who has a father's genetic factor, he had a soft spot for the music, in 1955 bold applicants Shanghai Conservatory of Music, the results standings top, rounded his "musical dream" .

"Butterfly Lovers," the most widely circulated Chinese symphony, was written in collaboration with Ho Zhanhao in the fourth grade of his university. He has won five gold and platinum records. Because "Butterfly Lovers" is so famous, it also "covered" many other works of Chen Gang. The violin solo song "Miaoling Morning", "The Golden Stove", "Sunshine Shining in Taxkorgan", "Grace" created in the 1970s, The 1980s violin concerto "Wang Zhaojun", have become the famous Chinese violin music literature, has been staged.

There is also a Shanghai dream
Today, Chen Gang is doing the fourth dream, "Shanghai Dream." "This dream is not achieved by a few people. It is to sounded the assembly number, to unite the talents who are interested in all aspects of Shanghai culture and work together to dream True. "This is his current role - the head of Koehler.
Speaking of this "Koehler" (Koehler, referring to the pursuit of beauty and elegance of the way of life), Chen Gang recalled: In 2012, a "aesthetic education" as the key link to "Kelemen Culture Salon" in Shanghai Birth. "Steady" Chen Gang once again turned from the composer and writer gorgeous, and like-minded partners in Shanghai to run a "Koehler House" full of rich culture of the salon, so that it spread like wildfire Inside and outside the circle.
This team was first initiated by Chen Gang and writer Cheng Nai Shan. Subsequently, TV host Yan Hua, general manager of Shanghai International Grand Hotel 嵇 Dongming, art critic Lin Mingjie and others joined to develop it into a monthly "Koehler Door culture salon ".
In the past five years, Sharon has held a monthly sharing session, launching a Shanghai charity seminar for Shanghai culture in Shanghai's libraries, communities and schools, focusing on Shanghai's history and culture, tapping the city's story and demonstrating the city's beauty. A lot of time and energy spent on the "Koehler", the location is in the Jing'an Temple Shanghai International Grand Hotel on the second floor of the "Imperial Hall", where there is "Kelemen Cultural Salon" base camp; In addition, the 27th The "Guidu Xuan" also set up a "Koehler House" - the wall of the bookcase neatly placed in Shanghai celebrity gift book, hanging on the wall to participate in "Koehler" activities of the previous Guest photos - Qin Yi, birch, Bai Xiangyong, Chen Yiming, Chencun, Liu Guangning, Tong Zirong, Cao Lei, etc., while the strict constitutional hand-painted Monkey King and Tan Yuan Yuan's dance shoes are "frozen" in the refined frame.
Chen Gang, looking for content for each event, contact guests; host Yan Hua Quan into each interview, planning, their wages are put into the shooting record; art critic Lin Ming-kai for the event advice, drawing invitations for each activity ... ... No money for this cultural salon funding, depends entirely on the dedication of volunteers. It is this love that affects more and more people. More and more people like Qin Yi, Bai Xianyong, Liang Boro, Chen Yiming, Tan Yuanyuan, Chun Zi, Cao Lei, Liu Guangning, Tong Zirong, Chen Yanhua, Wang Xiaoying, Chen Cun, Song Siheng and Huang Mengla Cultural celebrities gathered here, regardless of age, regardless of area, a Shanghai cultural tradition of volunteers.
Chen Gang recalled: "Sharon was originally in the villa of Moller, and my friends in culture and art circles were just a small gathering." At that time, it was the current managing director of Shanghai Grand Metropark Co., Ltd., Doctors, very much like music, wake up every morning, the first thing to do is to listen to music, it has become a habit, then Qiong Dongming to Guidu office, "Köhler" also moved to your capital. Why named "Koehler"? Chen Gang has his unique understanding that "Koehler" should be a kind of sentiment, a kind of spirit, an exquisite and noble urban culture. In his opinion, "Shanghai is most affected by foreign cultures in France, and quite a few streets in Shanghai are very much in tune with those in France."
Chen Gang recalled a child, once with his father Chen Gexin and Wu Zuguang, Ding Cong and other celebrities to a Pudong building cafe, dozens of square tables, can accommodate hundreds of people. He said: "A lot of inspiration for artistic creation is to be talked of, and it is only necessary to cross-border and cross-boundary conflicts and sparks of sparks of art." Shanghai style culture is all-encompassing, open-minded, inclusive and can try different things With a creative attitude to melt new. 'Koehler should be an eclectic culture.'
Chen Gang said with deep feeling: "My father's song" Rose Rose I Love You ", as early as 70 years ago has gone abroad to become the first Chinese music sing all over the world, especially in 1951, the famous American singer Frankie Ryan converted it into jazz, after the cover into "Rose Rose I Love You", quickly became popular in the United States, topped the forefront of the nation's music charts that year, becoming the first to be translated into English and widely prevalent around the world And have a significant impact on Chinese songs, loved by people all over the world. After half a century, they are still widely circulated. "
"It is just at the right time, as early as ten years, there will be no 'Kelemen'." Chen Gang's tone is very sure. Economic upgrading and cultural backwardness provide the most favorable gap for the excavation and inheritance of Shanghai culture.
Chen Gang was once invited to go to the German Consulate General in Shanghai to lecture, the German Consul, who loves Shanghai culture, said to Chen Gang: "We want to save Shanghai culture and save Shanghai culture is to save Shanghai's future." Chen Gang listened to this Words, the heart is not the taste: "Is it still German to save the Shanghai culture?" "Saving" may weigh heavily, but Shanghai, as the birthplace of Chinese urban culture, should not be from these two words The province realized that Shanghai scholars should rejuvenate the dignitaries of Shanghai culture? This is the motto and motivator of his launch of the Koehler Gate.
"Koehler" activities to take the invitation system, rather than the membership system, held once a month, each about about 120 people. Each activity revolves around a theme, and the theme is determined, and some are "pregnant in October, once the childbirth", while others are occasional chance, the temporary intention, Chen Gang said with a smile: "Everything is natural, what to do What. "Such as Chen Yifei Memorial feature, Bai Xianyong special, Tan Yuanyuan special and Monet special. However, in the view of Chen Gang, the culture should not have utilitarianism. Therefore, the theme of Koehler's activities is determined. The original intention is more about how to make it more culturally rich. Engage in creation requires the use of true temperament, engage in cultural salon activities also need true temperament.
Because of this, the activities of "Koehler" rapidly gather high popularity, many people just want to participate in an event, want to go second, in order to participate in activities, a lot of people who change tickets, in order to participate in activities , Out of pocket, made a special trip to Shanghai is also no shortage of people. Although the number of "Koehler" activities is limited, the onlookers from the Internet and the media are quite impressive. They also know how to use new media to take the initiative to achieve mass communication. "We open each issue first with Weibo," and Chen Gang relished his "Koehler" play. Today, microblogging, "Kele Men" fans gathered in the middle-aged scholars, there are old overseas Chinese, there are "fashion after 80", almost every period will be passionately forwarded. "Then there was a long Weibo report and video follow-up after the live event, and at the same time, the activities were retained through paper media."
