この日は上海はマイナス8℃、日中もほぼ0℃近辺で風が強いこと。
日本も軒並み寒かったそうですね。
こちらは雪は降りませんでしたが。

なんだか疲れて午前9時半くらいまでベットでウダウダ。
そこから朝ごはんを食べて会社へ。
地下鉄8号線大世界駅から2号線人民広場駅(1駅)乗り換えて陆家嘴駅で下車です。
そこから5分程歩いてオフィス到着。
1階にスタバがあり、そこで漸く言えるようになった中国語での注文で
アメリカンをオーダーして持ち込みました。

それから暫く休憩も適宜入れながら書類を作成してコンサートホールへ。
午後8時開演ですので、日式ラーメン店で東京ラーメンを。
うーん、あんまり美味くない・・・・。
意味もなくらっきょを買ったりして、地下鉄でまた移動。
上海は地下鉄はホントに便利で安いです。

さて、今日は中国人指揮者のラン・シュイ、客演です。
写真の通り端正な顔立ちの人です。
シンガポールやコペンハーゲンでオケを率いているようですね。

一曲目は二台の二胡がソロの5分程度の短い曲。
聴き易いオリエンタルな曲想で結構楽しめました。

そして2曲目がプロコフィエフのピアノ協奏曲3番。
ソロは三谷幸喜そっくりのソン・スーエング。
30代前半で全く知らない人だったのですが、
クリアなタッチで感興と知的なアプローチがミックスされていて
かなりの実力者でした。
そして、オケが素晴らしい。
このオケでこれだけの大編成は初めてですが、
先ずは木管が上手い、特にクラリネット、ファゴット、フルートのトップは
かなりのレベルで表現力があるしアンサンブルも〇。
特にクラリネットが活躍するこの曲で魅力全開。
指揮はオケを少し整理し過ぎていると感じるところもなきにしもあらずですが、
エッジも効いていて〇でありました。

アンコールはトルコ行進曲の大ヴィルトゥーゾ編曲。
ゴドフスキーとかであるのでしょうか?
アクロバティックでキレキレの演奏で観客もこの日一番の興奮!
これで終わる予定だったみたいですが、アンコールが鳴りやまず
ショパンの雨だれ、このアンコール構成、ブロンフマンみたい(笑)。
非常にタッチが弱音でも美しいものでした。

そしてショスタコの10番。
まあ、上海に来てこの曲を生で聴けるとは!
弦の厚みはもう少し欲しいし、ところどころ乱れるところはありましたが、
管楽器を始めオケが指揮者を信頼しているのが伝わってきます。
テンポは通常で楽譜を何かしらの想いをというよりは
譜面をしっかり読み込んんでというものです。
ホルン、トランペット、チューバのトップは白人で
(金を出して??)呼んでいるのでしょうが、流石に上手い。
ホルンの第2楽章のソロも味がある響き、
全く危なげなく幅の広い明るい音色。

第1楽章は少し音を置き気味でしたが、
第2楽章以降はかなり好調でこちらものめり込みました。
長い思索的な部分から開放されるとド派手に鳴らす演奏も多いですが、
そういうこともなく、好感が持てました。
第4楽章も確りとコーダを決めて終演、午後10時10分位かな。

客入りは8割程度。
こちらの観客ははっきりしていて、つまらないと思ったら席を立つ人も結構います。
事前に知らずにショスタコ10番を聴いたのか、
第1楽章からポツポツと耐え切れないとばかりに出ていく人が。
第3楽章でも第4楽章でもパラパラと、全員で20~30人でしょうか?
初めてだとそらそうだな、と変に納得したり(笑)。

今日もウルサイ子供が少しいましたが、これまでよりはマシで
音楽に集中することができました。

そこから寒風吹く中を帰宅して、石庫門という紹興酒を少し飲みました。

では、次はパーヴォ・ヤルヴィ指揮の我が祖国です。
