Shall Neujahrskonzert in HK!!!

7 12 2008

每年年尾,身邊朋友總發現雨總是維也納愛樂新年音樂會不離口,除了四處搜羅曲目、噱頭,還有就是尋找如何在網上收看視像直播。

In the end of years, Neujahrskonzert is always something could be heard from my mouth. Program, funny point to watch, the way to watch the live online, are all things I have to look for.

維也納愛樂新年音樂會幾乎是有意識以來,每年必看的節目。以前在廣府,每個新曆年的黃昏,扭開電視機CCTV2台就有得看來。來到H港,反而更加不方便,一直只能靠網上聽BBC的直播,只有聲音,直到前兩年才可以看到網上的視像直播,才恢復這多感官享受。看到這裡,大家或許會理解這裡每年都會有這類資訊的出現。

Neujahrskonzert is a must for my family to start a year, since I was born. Luckily, the first new year I encountered is the first time we can watch the konzert, the Karajan one, in the Mainland behind the wall. It’s rather easy to watch Neujahrskonzert in Mainland, simply turn on the teli, tune to CCTV 2, the amusing waltzes and polkas, with gracious movement of the musicians just appear in the box in my days in Canton. However, when I move to this so-called Asians world City, no direct live access to the Konzert could be found. The first few years, I can only listen to the sounds via BBC online radio. Some online video live streaming could not be found until recent years.

H港的高官們總喜歡把自己和倫敦,紐約相提並論,但文化的角度上來看真是不敢恭維。就拿維也納愛樂新年音樂會來說,倫敦有BBC的電台電視直播,紐約因為音樂會的時間是當地的凌晨,但PBS都會錄播。而不和都會比,拿跟鄰近地區比,大陸有中央台(雖然現在也不是人人看到的音樂頻道),台灣也有台視。

The official here, recently, quite enjoy the comparison our metropolis with London and New York. Frankly this is no the case culturally. Take the Neujahrskonzert der Wiener Philharmoniker as the case. In London, BBC air the concert simultaneously. New York , where was midnight when the konzert start its first not, however PBS will have a broadcast afterwards. Even region around us have something live to watch, state-owned CCTV will air this concert on his not-everyone-can-watch Music Channel, Taiwan TV will responsible the broadcast on the island.

而香港呢?兩家免費電視台就不用說了,兩個都是商營,哪怕有了高清,也不會照顧這些小眾的陽春白雪。況且這音樂會的時段,也會踩進黃金時間。似乎在這大大的新年,或許安排明星唱歌,比這些維也納的作狀怪傑,在一個金色大廳中製造一些老掉牙的聲音,收視更有保證。

So how about Hong Kong? The two commercial-minded Free-to-Air television, though with some new HD channels, well, out of issue, as such Viennese rhythm is just something with few audience. More important is when the climax comes with waltzes in the second half of the concert, the Prime time in Hong Kong comes. Sounds nobody, even the cable-tv you have to pay for, will put such homogeneous concert on their program. After all, putting some recent stars, is more secure than putting those foppish gentlemen who creating some far outdated sounds from the ancient hall, on our plasma screen.

但雖無電視,但香港還有一個號稱唯一一個播送音樂的頻道。為甚麼來點電台直播,讓人望梅止渴也沒有呢?而且這電台還是政府機構,是不能,還是不為呢?

Although it sounds impossible for us to have this concert on TV, but how about radio live broadcast? What have our only music channel, that is a government department, done? Nothing. Not able to do, or not to do I wonder.

所有有關文化區的建設,我是不看好的,估計也是假大空。因為配套根本不足,縱有設施,卻無教育幫助了解,帶動接觸。連一個只由全部超過的十分鐘的歡愉舞曲組成的音樂會,都無人承播,還談那些情緒爆燈的馬勒交響樂,和那些劇情複雜,隱喻處處,斷小時計的歌劇呢?

So I remain skeptical on the West Kowloon Cultural District. It’s possible will be a well-design architectural wonder, however, is there any thing to help the citizen to get into the arts? Even a concert with only hilarious polkas and waltzes within 10 minutes, which is a best gateway to classical music, cannot find some agency to air, so how about emotional Mahler symphonies, and dramatic Opera, which all needs occupied hours of air time?

怨氣發洩完畢,感謝大家的耐性。無論如何,雨還要繼續找尋各種方法,收看這音樂會的直播,畢竟沒有可能先在發文,2009年的音樂會就能在公仔箱出現。倘若你也在這亞洲國際都會,想收看這歐洲音樂盛事,而苦無門路,歡迎私下聯絡,以求相關機宜。

Thank you for your patience, if you’re still here reading. After all, though I express my views here, I still have to watch the next Neujahrskonzert, which comes within a month, via some online live streaming. If you’re too in this so-called Asians world city, also want to watch the live of the Neujahrskonzert, just contact me for the ways to get the live streaming, via private ways like e-mail, IM, etc…….
