卡瓦蒂纳(Cavatina)

卡瓦蒂纳(Cavatina)


章凝


和她遭遇源于一个偶然事件:那是大约两周前,一个冬日的上午,我正在班上,坐在办公桌前,一边轻松敲打着电脑键盘,输入若干千篇一律的日常系统管理命令;一边给自己戴上副耳机,随机放一段音乐,以摆脱工作的单调,打发枯燥的时间。就此,办公室的喧嚣与感官隔绝,尘世渐渐离去,我进入到一个人的世界。时间一分分流逝,不知不觉中,忽然我感觉到:视线开始模糊起来,面前的电脑屏幕有些不清楚了,两只眼睛更是酸酸的。我怎么了?这是怎么一回事情呀?

然后,顺理成章地,我病态地爱上了她。连续好几天,每晚入睡前定要和她相会两三遍,在她忧伤、温柔的抚摩下,含着泪幸福地入睡。她那双魔幻的手,轻轻拨弄着我灵魂至深处那最为隐秘、脆弱的弦,教它在不由自主的颤栗中,一丝丝融化、升华,进入到那遥远的天际。此时此刻,贝多芬之心,在我的胸腔里复活、跳动......

贝多芬《第13弦乐四重奏(Op.130)》第5乐章:“诗一般柔和的 Cavatina(意大利语,意为短小的咏叹调),代表了贝多芬内心的音乐。按贝多芬自己说这是创作于1825年夏天,当时他正处于深度忧郁之时,他的朋友说贝多芬写这首音乐是含泪创作的:‘他在精神上是这样至诚,以致只要提起这段音乐,他眼泪就会涌出。’”(ZT)

艺术天使的眼泪从来都不会白流。贝多芬一时的泪水,换来了一代代后来人多少的回报。容我转引youtube上几位网友的有关评论:

keimica 4 years ago:"I know that as well. I believe it's his favorite movement. In a conversation on this subject he referred to it as 'the crown jewel'."

Osukastairu 4 years ago:"I'm reading about Beethoven right now and listening as I see titles in this book. About Cavatina, it says that Beethoven said that only thinking about the melodies made him cry (he was deaf)."

beethomozart 4 years ago:"One of Beethoven's most famous pages, preferred by the author himself, 'never music has impressed such an effect on me' he said, a composition lacking development and repetition, melodic invention of a notorious length and with variety in its last part, written with a sensation of oppression and where sound tends to dissolve constantly threaten by silence, long live ludwig van."

folsak 4 years ago:"Amazing ludwig. This is music no must express any word only feel the music. R.I.P."

DoubleGauss 4 years ago:"Can you name the ensemble that performed this quartet? The Cavatina is a very delicate piece and it's easy to screw it up by playing it fast. This is one of the better renditions I have heard."

hellomate639 4 years ago:"Its a very sad, sweet, near end of life song..."

imajeepster 3 years ago:"The saddest thing is that Beethoven was totally deaf, and never got to hear it....it's the music of someone saying Goodbye."

rchen123 3 years ago:"This music is a gift from the heavens, it is about 'us' as a humans which is full of sadness yet full of hope, full of bitterness yet full of kindness, like lost souls full of contradictions. This version is a minute longer than the version of the 'golden record' on the Voyager spaceship launched in 1977 into the the cosmic abyss."

RIce2324 3 years ago:"Only goes to show that hearing music isn't enough. You have to feel it. Beethoven was the best at that. Probably more-so than any musician in the world."

granchard 3 years ago:"As I drive along listening to the great mans sublime works, I imagine him sitting next to me with the ability to hear, It is a beautiful idea that he would be able to listen.On hearing, I wonder if he would change anything."

folsak 3 years ago:"The limits of the art."

Sonolumino8939 2 years ago:"There are very few pieces which embody life, death, struggle, hope, love, and beauty in all their forms. This is such a piece, an eternal, transcendental work not of this world, but given to mankind to reassure us that there is something more to our lives. Thank you God, and thank you Beethoven."

keimica 2 years ago:"I don't know what kind of women you know who listen to this music that then didn't like it. But it's sad if ANYONE doesn't like this music, and I don't see why you think it must be a woman thing. That's rather limiting. This was Beethoven's favorite piece, which he called 'the crown jewel' and the only piece of his that made him cry. It's also on the Voyager spacecraft, (although the Budapest quartet interpretation)."

DoubleGauss 2 years ago:"Beethoven never actually heard this piece himself as he was completely deaf when he composed it. So if he cried, he cried while imagining the sound in his head."

Moon0Royalty 2 years ago:"My heart does swell listening to Beethoven, but I do not cry. Why? Because tears are not to be shed over such beauty."

exxcalibur1973 1 year ago:"In the words of Marliave, 'the music here reaches an intensity of feeling that transcends all the agony of grief, all the depths of anguish that human grief could experience.'"

imajeepster 1 year ago:"I know, that's the saddest thing to think of...that he was never able to hear it. Sob..."

exxcalibur1973 1 year ago:"Really, I never knew it was Beethoven's favorite piece. I don't know the musical term for what happens at 4:23 but it is the most, most , most, most amazing thing i have ever heard. I recall hearing it for the first time about 10 years ago. I quit my job and came back home to restart my life because it was as if everything i had done had led to that moment. Where do you go after this? You can't just do what you were doing. It makes no sense. It is a death and rebirth and the divine."

ScoutIsBestClass 8 months ago:"There are two times when it's acceptable to cry. when someone dies and when you hear the Cavatina."

Peter O' Neill 1 month ago:"'But it is the Cavatina that immediately precedes that Allegro that made the greatest impression on me. A movement which which in calm finality and intensity goes beyond anything I have heard by the venerable Ludwig.' Samuel Beckett, 1934, in a letter to Morris Sinclair."

是啊,音乐是最能触及、抚慰人灵魂的艺术。好羡慕章凝对音乐,如此透彻心骨的痴迷(狂)。

鸟之将死,其言也哀;人之将死,其言也善。贝多芬的晚期四重奏是他生命的绝笔,伟大作曲家的“音乐遗嘱”。6部皆精品杰作,艺术成就丝毫不比他那些驰名遐迩的交响曲、协奏曲、重奏曲、奏鸣曲等低。很遗憾当时没有得到社会应有的认可,至今竟然也仍不普及。真正的曲高和寡了。有慧眼独具之专家评论“这些作品是他在弦乐四重奏这一体裁下的最伟大成就,甚至是历史上所有音乐作品中之佼佼者。”── 此言不虚,绝无过誉。贝多芬的晚辈知音,去世仅比他晚一年的舒伯特,当年看过这些四重奏的手稿后感叹道:“他写到这个程度了,还留给我们写什么呀?”有人对晚期四重奏的具体形容为“形式复杂、内涵深邃”。音乐作为美的至高载体,复杂和深邃只是其追求的终极目标的一个方面,另外我想追加两句,那就是:异常优美,感人肺腑。很高兴最近开始欣赏了,她们来得正是时候。贝多芬晚期四重奏给我带来的心灵冲击和精神震撼,与他的中期巨作如《英雄交响曲》、《命运交响曲》、《皇帝钢琴协奏曲》、《艾格蒙特序曲》等等量齐观。

网上那些同好的评论有些很精辟,回头翻译出来。

我又在酝酿一篇新的贝多芬文。

期待“贝多芬”新篇诞生。相信,那一定是一篇意蕴更为柔韧、深邃、悠远如天籁的美文!

今天在油管上看 Beethoven documentary,贝多芬去世时的背景音乐正是这段“Cavatina”,对我而言真是太煽情了......
