Programme 4

The Sound of Chopin (Documentary)

Being hailed as “the poet at the piano”, Polish composer Frederic Chopin was very particular about the craftsmanship and tone of the pianos he played and was especially fond of those manufactured by the French company Pleyel. According to the pianist-composer’s contemporary Franz Liszt, this preference was because of “their silvery and slightly veiled sonority” and their “lightness of touch”. 

《蕭邦的琴音》(記錄片)

生於波蘭、曾於十九世紀三、四十年代風靡法國的「 鋼琴詩人」蕭邦,其作品至今仍深受樂迷熱愛。蕭邦對鋼琴的音色非常講究,自他21歲去到巴黎後,便鍾情於法國製造商Pleyel的鋼琴。但經過近兩個世紀的發展,古今鋼琴無論造工和音色已經不盡相同, 導演郭靜君抱著「現代人仍有機會一聽曾令蕭邦心醉的獨特琴音嗎?」 這個疑問,拍攝《蕭邦的琴音》, 以紀錄片方式追溯「鋼琴詩人」喜愛的樂器和音色,這齣精彩製作將於本屆香港古樂節中首播。
