是次音樂會由時。刻室樂與香港大學美術博物館合辦

法國作曲家梅湘(一九零八至一九九二)是二十世紀最具影響力兼最迷人的音樂家之一。他其中一個嗜好就是會帶著紙筆去田園及樹林,聆聽著雀鳥歌唱並把「鳥語」紀錄下來,然後在作曲時再把這些大自然的旋律用上。另外,梅湘是個虔誠的天主教徒,於是乎他的很多作品都與宗教有關,而二次大戰時在戰俘營裏寫成的《為時間終結而作的四重奏》則更加是同時與雀鳥和宗教都有關。

所謂「時間終結」,就是俗語的世界末日。不過在梅湘這位天主教徒的眼中,末日所象徵的乃是新世界的來臨;時間的終結,將迎來永恆的國度。為了讓聽眾充份地體驗梅湘所想象的新世界,音樂會將舉行於環境清幽的香港大學馮平山樓林仰山展覽廳。當日的節目包括:下午三時李志權博士的音樂會前講座及三時半至四時半時。刻室樂的演出;及晚上八時至九時的第二場演出。

Co-presented by University Museum and Art Gallery, HKU and The TimeCrafters

Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992) was one of the most important musical figures of the 20th century, and also one of its most fascinating. He had a particular fondness for bird songs, which he documented meticulously. Another key aspect of his life was his Catholic faith. Both of these elements were integral to his composition of Quartet for the End of Time, which was written and first performed during the Second World War, at a time when the composer and a few other musicians were held as prisoners of war.

'End of Time' is a biblical reference from the Book of Revelations, which offers visions of a new world revealed after the apocalypse. Rather than being concerned with the end of the world, Messiaen's quartet is about evocations of heaven and timelessness. The intimate setting of the Drake Gallery in the Fung Ping Shan Building at HKU provides the perfect setting for the contemplation of such ideas. The events will include an introductory talk by Dr Martin Lee in the afternoon at 3pm followed by a performance by the TimeCrafters from 15:30 - 16:30, and a second evening concert will take place from 20:00 - 21:00.
