推荐下Alan Hovhaness

1911-2000,亚美尼亚-苏格兰裔美国人,比较冷门,风格大概算是近现代烂漫主义,喜欢Jean Sibelius、RalphVaughan Williams,还有SA之前推荐过Kurt Atterberg的同学可以尝试下,其他人也可以,算是比较容易入耳,旋律优美的东西
此人极其多产,单有标题没有标题的编号交响曲就有67部,全部作品列表可以见此:http://www.musicweb.uk.net/classrev/2000/feb00/hovanessworks.htm
从有标题的作品可以看到此人大部分作品是以大自然(山啊海啊光啊)、宗教(主要是宗教体验而非故事)、神秘主义为题材的创作
第一次接触的同学可以先听听The Prayer of Saint Gregory,我也不知道为什么此曲在下面我要发的CD里几乎张张都有,好强大的存在感,来自油条帮的试听:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWNNMfwOl0U(GFWed--)。这是他的歌剧'Etchmiadzin'(即某知名亚美尼亚教堂的名字)里的,St.Gregory即某位知名亚美尼亚宣教者,简单来说就是此人被他的疯王丢进地牢达15年之久。Hovhaness解释说这音乐像黑暗中祈祷。Hovhaness作品的普遍的柔美宁静中又不乏宏伟和大气的特点大概可以从这里窥见一二,不过这远不是他最棒的。
个人比较推荐的是Mysterious Mountain(第二)和Celestial Gate(第六)这2个交响曲。
另外他的风格不得不提的一点就是一种东西交融的情调,大部分带有点日本元素。还有点怀旧的伤感,乡愁之类的东西,和Kurt Atterberg很像。
关于神秘主义这部分我说不好,大概也和东方有关系,因为对于一个老外(西方人)来说东方多少是有点神秘的。
