6/2003 CD:"Ode to Life" 「為生命喝采」

Published in June 2003
Organized by RTHK Radio 4
Not For Sale 2003年6月出版
香港電台第四台 統籌

There are difficult and worrying days in life, just as there are prosperous and gratifying ones. In tears and fears, we see love and courage; and when there is love, there is hope ...

Music, some say, is like the speech of angels. It can bring peace and harmony into our lives even when the storm clouds are at their darkest. To banish the blues, Radio 4 spearheaded 'Ode to Life', an outdoor concert in Hong Kong Park and, as a follow up, this CD.

We are heartened by the enthusiastic response from all the musicians and organizations that have contributed to this cause. With support from the Composers and Authors Society of Hong Kong (CASH), two new works by Clarence Mak and Victor Chan have been commissioned as a timely musical tribute to life. And, the piece entitled 'Ode to Life' which has been specially written, performed and recorded by the renowned jazz guitarist Eugene Pao is currently another glorious highlight in this compilation.

While many of the selections are from Radio's 4 precious archive, we are deeply grateful to those record companies who provide us with the licenses for the tracks by international Chinese musicians, Fou Ts'ong, Yo-yo Ma and Lin Cho-liang, as well as the movie sound track 'Love is Beyond Words II' by Chan Wing-wah. Through this CD, musicians from Hong Kong and abroad are united in their love of music and their passion for life.

So, let's sit back and enjoy this album. I am sure it will refresh your souls and minds and bring some sweet sunshine into your life.

Amy Kwong
Head, Radio 4

人生難免有哀慟憂傷的時刻,但亦總有喜樂滿足的歲月。在流淚與驚惶之際,我們卻見證了愛心和勇氣。是愛,為我們帶來盼望 ...


謹此感謝所有參與和支持「為生命喝采」計劃的音樂家和機構。在香港作曲家及作詞家協會的支持下,麥偉鑄和陳偉光分別獲委約創作新曲,向生命獻禮。另外,爵士結他樂手包以正亦特別親自創作、演奏和灌錄了一首全新作品 - 《為生命喝采》,為這CD添上異彩。

除了從第四台的錄音寶庫中輯錄精華選段外,我們亦得蒙唱片公司提供版權,在這CD中收錄了由陳永華所寫的電影音樂《無言的愛 II》,以及著名海外華人音樂家傅聰、馬友友和林昭亮的精彩演出,讓本地及海外音樂家能透過這張CD,同心呈獻他們對音樂的熱愛和對生命的熱情。
