貝努姆 指揮 海頓 : 交響曲 NO. 96 『奇蹟 』& NO. 97 / HAYDN : Symphony No. 96 in D major "Miracle" & Symphony No. 97 in C major - conducted by EDUARD VAN BEINUM

 

                              ( LONDON  LL 854 , 1952年 LP )



荷蘭指揮家 EDUARD VAN BEINUM 現在早為現代樂友所怱略,這真是可惜。在 20世紀 BEINUM 以継任 Willem Mengelberg 為 Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra 指揮,更使其為超級樂團著名。他的風格其實有些像 ABBADO 在流暢的節奏中有穏健端正的表情聽來親切易懂,在 PHILIPS , DECCA 等留下相當多的錄音。其中如 馬勒交響曲 NO. 4 , 莫札特 哈弗納交響曲,韓德爾 水上音樂 ....真是人人稱頌。只是 BEINUM 於1959年早死,他的 STEREO 錄音稀少就相對吃虧,也難怪現代人已逐漸淡忘。


BEINUM 指揮 Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra &  London Philharmonic Orchestra 在 50年代也錄下一些 HAYDN : Symphonys ,以 HAYDN 交響曲原有健康風格真是天作之合,聽來如沐春風溫暖受用。

這些錄音真是珍寶,切匆走寶。

亞布拉凡尼爾 指揮 葛立格 : 管絃作品 / Grieg Works For Orchestra - conducted by Maurice de Abravanel

 

         ( VOX QSVBX 5140,1976年 3LP   ) - Recorded in 1975. Engineering done at Elited Recording, NY.





先談音響,Elited Recording 是一家外包錄音公司常可從一些美國唱片品牌如 VOX , Vanguard ,Nonesuch , Angel ...發現,品質通常都很不錯甚至一些 TAS 天碟 如 VOX 的蓋西文系列 ..等都出自 Elited  。在早年沒有 Google 可查資料時只能靠的看雜誌報導或口耳相傳,當年有傳言說 Elited 是 MERCURY 唱片收攤後,首席錄音師 C. Robert Fine 等大咖創立的,因為  Elited Recording  錄音沒署名錄音師為何?所以事實不得而知,但這位 Veteran Marc Aubort 是其中的參與人仕 ( https://www.analogplanet.com/content/elite-recordings-conversation-freelance-recording-engineer-veteran-marc-aubort-0 )。Elited Recording 是可作為好錄音的指標,本唱片正出於 Elited Recording 。


這是 指揮 Abravanel  錄製   葛立格 : 管絃作品 ,唱片封面 印著  Vol. 1其實是多餘,因為根本沒 Vol. 2。(一套 3LP) 唱片選曲很精,包括了 葛立格 最有代表性作品。說白一點,再加上一首 鋼琴協奏用Op. 16 對於一般樂友應該已夠用了。當然要更齊全更好的全集,仍是 Neeme Järvi  的 Grieg  ( DG 471 300-2 , 6 CD ) 大全集,Järvi  這套連 唯一的 Symphony In C Minor ,鋼琴協奏 Op. 16 都有納入,而最出色的,是 Peer Gynt 皮爾金 (全曲版 )中的 In the Hall of the Mountain King ( 山大王的殿堂 I Dovregubbens hall) ,管絃氣勢澎湃洶湧,四面八方而來的人聲充滿著原始力量。這段錄音極佳,令人目瞪口呆。這套 皮爾金 (全曲版 , DG 423 079-1,1987年 2LP ) 比 獨角獸唱片那套企鵝三星戴花的名盤 Dreier / LSO ( UNICORN UKCO 2003~4 ) 實有過之無不及,是樂友不得錯失必備收藏。

 Abravanel 擅長法國音樂,他總是辨法提供美麗的音響。本唱片的 Peer Gynt 是一般上下二組曲(共8首),在 阿西之死 ( the death of ase)和英格麗的嘆息( ingrid's lament)悲傷旋律中表情很出色。但山大王的殿堂 (In the Hall of the Mountain King) 和皮爾金歸鄉( peer gynt's return)就聽來是意猶未盡。其實這不能怪 Abravanel ,是 Utah Symphony Orchestra 非頂班樂團,真絃樂部的豐美厚實,明顯氣勢不足。但是,本唱片最好的 Holberg Suite   Op. 40Two Elegiac Melodies For String Orchestra, Op. 34 在  Abravanel 細緻引接下還優美動的。當然,以 霍爾堡組曲 Holberg Suite   Op. 40 要和 名門的 Karajan ( DG  2532 031,1981年 LP )或 Marriner ( Argo ZRG 670,1970年 LP ) 在絃樂演奏的和諧示範是明顯差上好幾條街。但,這二張LP任一片售價有夠買本唱片全套還有剩也是事實。

總結說,這套唱片錄音好又選曲精,演奏也不失禮,最重要的是還很廉價。
