中國近年最受歡迎小提琴家之一李傳韻灣區首演

「如果中國希望可以出一位偉大的小提琴家,他們已經擁有了,只需好好培養他。」小提琴大師歷治聽了李傳韻演奏後作出總結,「這位年青人前途無限,他具有超凡的小提琴家能力,及作為一個偉大小提琴家應有的必備條件。」

被《每日鏡報》譽為「才華洋溢,力度與表達能力驚人」的李傳韻是當今中國及國際頂尖小提琴家之一。他三歲由父母啟蒙,1986年起是葉氏兒童音樂實踐中心的中堅分子,並獲企業家蔡建中先生贊助,隨北京中央音樂學院的林耀基教授學藝,此後獲得多個比賽獎項,包括11歲時獲20位評委一致選為第五屆維尼亞夫斯基國際青年小提琴大賽青年組冠軍。他在茱莉亞音樂學院隨迪蕾、帕爾曼及姜康學習,繼而在辛辛那堤大學音樂學院深造,師隨迪蕾及薩斯曼,後又獲金寶爾基金會贊助,在紐約隨郭伯斯繼續進修。

李氏經常在中國、日本及美國巡迴演出,並曾與指揮格爾基耶夫和鹿特丹愛樂樂團、約菲和底特律交響樂團、迪華特及香港管弦樂團、水藍和星加坡交響樂團及李心草和中國國家交響樂團等知名指揮和樂團合作。2002年,李氏替陳凱歌的電影《和你在一起》錄製小提琴獨奏音樂,《華盛頓郵報》評為「彷如天籟的琴音,為這齣電影添加美極動人的音響背景」。2003年李氏不顧沙士疫情,冒險回港臨時代替不能來港的獨奏家與香港小交響樂團及葉詠詩指揮演出,大獲觀眾與樂評人讚賞。

2004年香港電台製作一系列傑出華人青年音樂家節目,當中包括李氏、郎朗、李雲迪及王健等。2006年李氏巡迴美國演出,《紐約時報》稱李氏為「一流小提琴家」,又説:「有機會聽到李氏演奏小提琴已不枉這個晚上。」

李氏曾灌錄多張專輯,包括15歲時錄音的帕格尼呢全套24首《隨想曲》、由普羅唱片發行的『預言鳥』、及與著名鋼琴家羅伯特‧肯尼合作錄音的CD『愛的致意』、SACD『琴魂』、DVD『名琴上的精靈之舞』及2007發行的DVD『名琴傳韻』。

2007年4月8日下午3點半李氏將在三藩市Herbst Theatre舉行首次個人獨奏會,演譯理察‧施特勞斯優美的小提琴奏鳴曲及由巴濟尼、陳鋼、薩拉沙蒂、秦咏城、衞斯曼作曲及米爾斯坦改編自李斯特和蓋希文的經典小提琴精彩曲目,與李氏三重奏成員之一的鋼琴家李天慧合作演出,門票分$50$28$18,現已在City Box Office及三藩市吳興記等發售,訂票及查詢請致電1-415-392-4400 或 1-415-781-8330,喜愛音樂的朋友不容錯過。中華文化中心會員享有獨家折扣,請致電中心查詢。

“If China wants to have a great violinist, they have one. All they have to do is look after him,” concluded violinist maestro Ruggiero Ricci (March 2004) after listening to Chuanyun Li. “This boy should have a great career. He has a fantastic violinist capability…. He’s got all the requisites.”

Hailed by The Daily Camera as “a massive talent with astonishing dynamic and expressive range…,” Chuanyun Li is one of the foremost violinists of his generation from China and internationally. An active member of the Yip’s Children Arts Centre since 1986, he has studied under the sponsorship of entrepreneur Mr Choi Kin Chung with Professor Yaoji Lin from Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing and won numerous prizes, including the 1st Prize in the 5th Wieniawski International Youth Violin Competition at 11. He studied with Dorothy DeLay, Itzhak Perlman and Hyo Kang in the Juilliard School of Music and continued his studies with DeLay and Kurt Sassmannshaus at the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and with Joey Corpus in New York City with the support of the Clarisse B Kampel Foundation.

Li has toured extensively in China, Japan and the US and collaborated with such orchestras as the Rotterdam Philharmonic with Valery Gergiev, Detroit Symphony with Neemi Järvi, Hong Kong Philharmonic with Edo de Waart, Queensland Symphony Orchestra with Michael Christie, China National Symphony with Xincao Li and Singapore Symphony with Lan Shui, among others. In September 2003, at 5 days notice, Li replaced Maxim Vengerov and performed Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole and Ravel’s Tzigane with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra under Rumon Gamba. In the same year, he braved the threat of SARS and returned to Hong Kong to replace an international soloist who could not come and performed with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta under Wing-sie Yip to great critical and audience acclaim.

He performed the solo violin for the soundtrack of Chen Kaige’s movie Together in 2002, noted by the Washington Post for “his ethereal playing,…which has given the movie such a magnificent aural backdrop.” Li was featured in a 2004 Radio Television Hong Kong documentary series of outstanding young Chinese musicians along with Lang Lang, Yundi Li and Jian Wang. When he toured the United States with the China National Symphony in 2006, The New York Times referred to Li as “a first-rate violinist” and remarked that “the chance to hear Mr Li’s violin playing made the evening all worthwhile.”

Li has recorded several CDs and a DVD to his credit, including Prophetic Bird and Salut d’Amour on CDs with POLOARTS in 2002 and 2004 respectively, a DVD in 2005 entitled La Ronde Des Lutins performing on Stradivari BELLO 1687, Stradivari RIES 1693 and Guarneri BALOKOVIC 1729, and a SACD entitled The Soul of Violin recorded on four violins provided by Stradivari Society.
