記得你在波蘭時期,來信說過藝術家需要有single-mindedness[一心一意],分出一部分時間關心別的東西,追術藝術就短少了這部分時間。當時你的話是特別針對某個問題而說的。我很了解(根據切身經驗),嚴格鑽研一門學術必須整個兒投身進去。藝術尤其音樂,反映現實是非常間接的,思想感情必須轉化為emotion[感情]才能在聲音中表達,而這一段醞釀過程,時間就很卡;一受外界打擾,醞釀過程即會延長,或竟中斷。音樂家特別需要集中(即所謂single-mindedness[一心一意]),原因即在于此。因為音樂是時間的藝術,表達的又是流動性最大的emotiOn[感情],往往稍縱即逝。不幸,生在二十世紀的人,頭腦裝滿了多多少少的東西,世界上又有多多少少東西時時刻刻逼你注意;人究竟是社會的動物,不能完全與世隔絕;與世隔絕的任何一種藝術家都不會有生命,不能引起群眾的共鳴。經常與社會接觸而仍然能保持頭腦冷靜,心情和平,同時能保持對藝術的新鮮感與專一的注意,的確是極不容易的事。你大概久已感覺到這一點。可是過去你似乎純用排斥外界的辦法(事實上你也做不到,因為你對人生對世界的感觸與苦悶還是很多很強烈),而沒頭沒腦的沉浸在藝術里,這不是很健康的作法。我屢屢提醒你,單靠音樂來培養音樂是有很大弊害的。以你的氣質而論,我覺得你需要多多跑到大自然中去,也需要不時欣賞造型藝術來調劑。假定你每個月郊游一次,上美術館一次,恐怕你不僅精神更愉快,更平衡,便是你的音樂表達也會更豐富,更有生命力,更有新面目出現。親愛的孩子,你無論如何應該試試看!小说区 图片区 你近來專攻斯卡拉蒂,發見他的許多妙處,我並不奇怪。這是你喜歡亨特爾以後必然的結果。斯卡拉蒂的時代,文藝復興在繪畫與文學園地中的花朵已經開放完畢,開始轉到音樂;人的思想感情正要求在另一種藝術中發泄,要求更直接刺激感官,比較更縹緲更自由的一種藝術,就是音樂,來滿足它們的需要。所以當時的音樂作品特別有朝氣,特別清新,正如文藝復興前期繪畫中的鮑蒂徹利。而且音樂規律還不像十八世紀末葉嚴格,有才能的作家容易發揮性靈。何況歐洲的音樂傳統,在十七世紀時還非常薄弱,不像繪畫與雕塑早在古希臘就有登峰造極的造詣,雕塑在紀元前六四世紀在紀元前一世紀至紀元後一世紀。一片廣大無邊的處女地正有待于斯卡拉蒂及其以後的人去開墾。寫到這里,我想你應該常去大不列顛博物館,那兒的藝術寶藏可說一輩子也享受不盡;為了你總的(全面的)藝術修養,你也該多多到那里去學習。我因為病的時候多,只能多接觸藝術,除了原有的舊畫以外,無意中研究起碑帖來了︰現在對中國書法的變遷源流,已弄出一些眉目,對中國整個藝術史也增加了一些體會;可惜沒有精神與你細談。提到書法,忽然想起你在四月號《音樂與音樂家》雜志上的簽字式,把聰字寫成“聰”。須知末一筆不能往下拖長,因為行書草書,“一”或“...”才代表“心”字,你只能寫成“聰”或“聰”。末一筆可以流露一些筆鋒的余波,例如“聰”或“聰”,但切不可余鋒太多,變成往下拖的一只腳。望注意。 综合区

What is Americana music?

Our big-sister organisation Americana Music Association in the USA describe the genre as incorporating elements of various American roots music styles resulting in a distinctive sound that lives in a world apart from the pure forms of the genres upon which it may draw.  The Milk Carton Kids wrote a parody song on this very subject for the Americana Honours & Awards in Nashville this year.

See the latest Official Americana Album Chart

The weekly chart is based on sales and is published by the Official Charts Company
