不限指揮家。

“Esa-Pekka Salonen is the principal conductor of the Philharmonia Orchestra in London. His career took off when he stood in at the last minute for a sick conductor when he was just 25. Almost 25 years later, he was recently named conductor of the year.” - BBC News

十個成為指揮家的TIPS,在

我并沒有想要成為指揮家,但有些事不止限於指揮家。以下,只是我節錄的關於我自己和其實也關於你。

1. Love the music

I think the most important thing is passion, you really have to love the music. You have to love the music more than you love yourself in a way. I didn't have any great dreams of conducting as a kid but I loved music for sure.

沒有持久的熱情,再熱也只維持3分鐘,什麼都將無以為繼。但這其實是常態,很正常的人生就是這樣。如果你是這樣別害怕,你和我一樣,我們和大多數人一樣,很多人一樣就叫平凡,平凡沒錯只要你願意。

6. Stay in shape

Conducting can be quite hard work. If someone who wasn't used to it tried to stand up and hold their arms above their shoulders for two hours, I think most people would faint. We eat out all the time after concerts too and we eat late, so it's easy to over indulge.

I try and stay in shape so I run. Exercise for me is a mental experience, it's my own time. Sometimes after a week or two you can feel like you have totally exhausted your social capabilities, at which point to be totally alone is fine to recharge. It takes a lot of energy to keep a large group of people focused.

無論從事什麼行業,保持身材永遠必要。若你連自己的外表都不在意,你會在意你所呈現出來的東西有多完美麼,你確定你有足夠的體力精神去完成你的事情麼?此外,身體很忙時被空置出來的頭腦是很奇異的存在,如果無所適從那好像在說你不懂和原始的自己裸裎相見,或剛好有個空間將最近某件事/某本書/某故事完整重演一遍。

7. Get a good stick

I get all my conducting sticks in [Harry Potter's] Diagon Alley. No, not really, all by batons are made by a third generation stick maker in Tokyo..

我只是好愛好愛DIAGON ALLEY!

8. Make little excursions outside your comfort zone daily
I think the biggest danger for young people is to do too much too soon. Make little excursions outside your comfort zone daily or at the very least weekly, otherwise you will stagnate and that would be a mistake.

Find the balance between safety and danger. You cannot exist in the danger zone but also shouldn't exist solely in safety and that is without any exceptions. It is OK to take your time. Being a Finnish person, things can be quite slow so it took me seven years to talk to my wife for the first time. We've been married for 22 years now, so it was worth the wait.

COMFORT ZONE永遠甜蜜,也永遠陷阱。

9. Tweet

I think it's so important to engage in these things. Why would we be any different to other art forms? Why wouldn't we have to engage with our audience? That's one of the problems that classical music has had, we think we are the mountain to which everyone else has to come.

I cannot assume that people automatically want to come to a concert, listen to something written 200 years ago, performed by people wearing clothes from the 1880s, conducted by a man or woman making ritual movements that seem to be vaguely connected with what is going on.

Our duty is to communicate to the world and let people know what we are doing. It is an arrogant and stupid thought that classical music should somehow exist in a bubble.

這時代若選擇避開社交媒體,那簡直是避世。避世當然是一種選擇,沒錯,值得也應該被尊重。我沒辦法理解的是另外一種人,嫌棄不屑社交媒體并以此為榮,說這有什麼意思呢不過是沈溺其中浪費時間。如果你不開面書推特微博原因是害怕時間被浪費,那你質疑的不是它們而是你自己的自控力。社交媒體意義在於CONNECTION,不管你是否願意與時並進,這是此刻與社會世界接軌的方式;我同意與朋友保持聯繫的最好方式是喝茶逛街聊天,但現實中我沒能力天天如此,能透過網絡隨時與我親愛的人保持聯繫,我非常樂意。

後記:

愛上對的人是很重要的。起初你會愛上必定是那人身上有你很嚮往的某種特質,或你珍愛的某些特點。常混在一起,你會暗地裏學習吸收那些你嚮往的,如果你成功並且前進,而那人仍然停步原地,你學成了你會離開。愛上一個永不停歇永遠好奇願意實驗或保持熱情追隨某事的人,你永遠跟在他後頭,會發現要學習的只能無止境。
