吴彤在Asia Society的“笙”情演出
2015年3月19日,吴彤带着“笙”造访纽约,并在Asia Society 完成了一次出彩的演出

2015年3月19日,农历二月的第一天,纽约在充满幸喜的8点钟迎来了吴彤在Asia Society的演出。吴彤作为北京满清贵族音乐世家里的一员,他用高昂深情的高音以及犹如流水蜿蜒的“笙”音将中国曲艺带到纽约,并使观众们为之振奋。

演出开始之前,吴彤坐在演出台上与大家分享音乐给他带来的经历。他说,90年代初,他遇到了自己的叛逆,组成了轮回乐队。摇滚带给了他疯狂的体验,也带给了他人生的跨越。吴彤本不是一个枯燥的人,他热爱且感激音符所带给他的所有体验和经历。“无论是生命中哪个阶段,我都执意热爱着摇滚。”

吴彤提到2000年的时候遇到马友友,也进行了丝路之旅的巡回音乐会。他说,遇到马友友的时候是他人生最低谷的时候,同时也是迈入上升阶段的时候。他们唱响了丝路之旅,让很多人认识到了这些触动人心的音乐家,更是让《马友友与友人的音乐礼赞/欢乐颂》获得了52届葛莱美奖“最佳古典跨界专辑”。

出生与音乐世家的吴彤,他的音乐事迹当然与音乐家庭离不开。吴彤说音乐是他与父亲的一座桥,让他与父亲关系更密切。小时候父亲总是教导吴彤要以一个什么样的状态去练琴,年少的吴彤也总是置之不理。从小他便有自己独特的音乐理念。父亲曾每天准备4支磁带,出门前交代吴彤一定要练满这四支磁带,等他回来的时候要“交差”。然而彼时的吴彤并不能理解乏味的“笙”所带给他的音乐感受。他以为“笙”只是重复着数个音符,枯燥无味。然而,当随着音乐知识的积累以及对音乐认识的更加深刻,他开始将“笙”与阴阳气息结合,从此便创造了自己独立的音乐,也有了自己特别的演奏形式。

“笙”在创作上遵循着四个字,“和”、“德”、“清”、“正”。和代表了“Harmony”,标志着和谐。“德”代表了“Virtue”,寓意着美德,美好。“清”代表了“Purity”,象征着清澈,纯洁。“正”代表了“Just”,表明着正义。“笙”是鲜为人知的一种乐器,在明白其内涵以前,演奏家很难有丰富的情绪体验。在吴彤理解了音乐的内涵以后,他的音乐世界为他打开了另一扇大门。他不再单纯的去介意某一种音乐形式,而是更多的开始注意自己的兴趣以及挖掘新鲜体验。

在近乎一个半小时的音乐盛宴中,吴彤与吉他手Simon C.F. Yu,鼓手(打击乐手) Shane Shanahan,大提琴手Neena Deb-Sen,分别同台演出,同时也设有自己的独奏演出。

在这场音乐盛宴里,观众用掌声完全地表达了对吴彤的肯定。演出的成功让纽约人都为之赞叹。
