杂谈

奥运会后一直忙于演出和基金会的筹备工作,很长时间没有更新博客了,先和大家问好。近来我在欧洲和美国演出,最深有感触的是奥运会给我们带来的变化:不仅是金牌榜上位列第一的荣耀,更多的是我们祖国的形象在国际上有了巨大的改变,中国文化通过奥林匹克更广泛地传播到世界各地——我所到的每一个地方都有人在谈论中国,她的历史、哲学、文学,当然包括音乐,无一不成为了人们着迷的谈资。很多欧美国家的普通人,都对我们这个具有神秘特质的充满魅力的东方国家产生了浓厚的兴趣。当我亲身体会到这些变化时,我由衷地感到骄傲。

 

我看到祖国的发展形势在蒸蒸日上,我也希望在自己的领域中多做一些事情。最近,我酝酿多时的音乐基金会终于要“新鲜出炉”了,我也要“培养下一代”了!这个基金会的宗旨是为一些有才能并需要帮助的小朋友提供经济支持,让他们实现自己的音乐梦想。

 

10月20日,我的基金会将在纽约宣布正式运行,届时我的一些朋友也会到场,包括格莱美主席尼尔·保诺特、卡内基音乐厅主席桑迪·威尔(也是美国花旗银行前总裁兼首席执行官)。并且,保特诺先生将为基金会致开幕词并宣布机构冠名——“郎朗国际音乐基金会”,威尔先生则宣布第一批受到赞助的小朋友的名字:这是三位刚刚选拔出来的优秀的琴童,分别是6岁、8岁和9岁,我在当天会对他们进行一些现场辅导。

 

我认为,音乐充满活力,音乐家更应该充满活力,我们需要更多的新生力量来保持和发扬古典音乐的伟大传统,而这个力量是由孩子开始的,所以,我的基金会将尽最大努力帮助更多的孩子。希望大家支持新生代的音乐家!

 

还有一件我自己的事情和大家分享一下:我很快要搬家了!搬到纽约,离卡内基音乐厅很近。即将迁进新居,非常开心!

 

也祝大家时刻拥有阳光般的心情!

Care for Children – Lang Lang International Music Foundation

 

Hope you’re all doing well!  Haven’t been updating my blog for some time, because I’ve been busy performing and setting up my own foundation after the Olympics.  I’ve been performing in Europe and America lately, and what touches me most profoundly are the changes the Olympic Games have brought to us.  It is not limited to the honor for topping the gold medals list, but even more so due to the new image my motherland has on the international scene.  With the Beijing Olympics, Chinese culture is spreading widely across the world.  Everywhere I visit, people are very much engaged in discussions about China, her history, philosophies, literature, and of course, music.  Commoners in Europe and America are engrossed and fascinated by our mysteriously unique and highly charismatic oriental country.  When I saw these changes for myself, I felt so very proud.

 

Seeing my country thrive makes me want to achieve more in my own field of profession.  The music foundation I’ve long been preparing to set up is finally about launch.  I want to play a part in nurturing the next generation too!  The objective of this foundation is to provide guidance and subsidies to children who are in need of economic assistance, so that they can achieve their dreams.

 

On the 20th of October, I will announce the launch of my foundation in New York with the presence of my friends Neil Portnow (Chairman of Grammy Award Academy) and Sandy Weill (Chairman of Carnegie hall and Former Chairman of the Citigroup).  Mr. Portnow will deliver an opening speech and announce the name of the foundation – Lang Lang International Music Foundation, while Mr. Weill will announce the names of the first lot of sponsored children.  They are three newly-chosen and extremely talented young piano-players aged 6, 8, and 9.  I shall also give them guidance on the occasion.

 

To me, music is full of energy, and musicians should be just as energetic.  We need more sources of new energy to sustain and develop the great traditions of classical music.  The cultivation of this source of energy should start with the young.  Hence, my foundation aims at providing more help to children.  I sincerely hope that everyone will support our new generation of musicians!

 

There is one more thing that I’d like to share: I’m moving!  I’m moving to New York, and my place is very close to Carnegie Hall.  I’m so happy about moving into my new place!

 

Hope you too will always be in sunny mood!
