為一位吉他演奏家所譯的音樂演奏文宣 [2006/7/23]
7/23/2006

在我所有的譯稿中,我想唯一會有客戶樂於讓我替他事先公佈宣傳的當屬下面我要貼出的「音樂演奏文宣」了。我一直很想幫國內具有實力的演奏家寫英文文宣,以幫助將他們推向國際舞台(也算為台灣社會做點貢獻----國家音樂廳所發行的那本節目手冊中的英文絕大部份都如我以前所說的,可謂「不登大雅」之至,對台灣文化界的形象只有減分),下面算是我的一個「作品樣本」。當然,由於中文寫的實在有點….,讓我頗費捉摸的苦心,若是有更明確清楚的中文,我相信我可以譯得更好。以下是中文原文和我的譯文,且供大家參考:

在過去 30 年的吉他界中,

ROBERTO 無疑地是同輩中兼具情感與技巧的專業演奏家.

而他在創作方面的成就, 更受到各界的一致推崇.

內斂而溫柔的演奏以及水晶般剔透的音色, 變化出濃郁的感情洪流,

或是憂傷的旋律細紋, 跳脫了俗世中對於速度與技巧的盲目追求.

ROBERTO 以音符為聽者建構了聽覺的虛擬世界,

忽略了死板的音符劃記, 進入他所描繪的音樂畫布.

在強烈節奏的樂曲中, 呈現的是傑出的編曲與充滿技巧性的演奏,

眩人耳目的現場表演, 更是每每讓觀眾心醉神迷.

從樂曲開始, 他逐步循環著流暢的音符,

揭開音樂的序幕, 接著進入出乎意料的即興式演奏,

大膽而自信地將電光火石間的意念化為曼妙的旋律帶.

這就是 ROBERTO 的迷人之處!!!

For the past thirty years, classical guitar virtuosoRoberto Zayas has been widely lauded as being the best among his contemporaries in harnessing passion and technique. His feat in composition and arrangement is also, among other things, unanimously acclaimed across classical guitar and music circles.

He has always been able to weave his crystalline timber into his reserved yet warmly gentle style of play. Be it the intensive shedding of floods of passion, which, by the way, is not just dazzling technique and stunning speed, or the melodic rippling of melancholic musings, his virtuosity always stands far above average critics’ expectations

With strings and strings of pearly notes, he constructs a virtual world for the audience, enthralling them and leading them into the frame of his musical canvas. His performances of powerful percussive rhythmic music typically display not only superb techniques but also outstanding talent in improvisation and arrangement, mesmerizing even the most critical audience. Flowing steadily along the theme at the start, his play often suddenly mutates into unexpected impromptus, transforming flashes of thematic ideas into brilliant passages of variations. And his bold move to capture the imagination of his audiences never fails.

That’s why and how Roberto Zayas charms!
