For its end-of-year concert, the Academy of Taiwan Strings (ATS) has invited world-renowned French violinist Augustine Dumay, one of the main jury members for Belgian’s prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition, to perform with them next month.

Born in Paris in 1949, Dumay entered the Conservatoire de Paris at the age of 10, and by the age of 14 he had already played a solo recital at Switzerland’s Septembre Musical de Montreux. In 1979, he performed as a soloist with the Berlin Philharmonic, under the baton of Herbert von Karajan, and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, which established him as an international fixture on the classical music scene. When he is not performing, Dumay teaches at the Queen Elisabeth College of Music in Belgium. In recent years, he has also become increasingly involved in conducting, and is currently the musical director of Belgian’s Royal Chamber Orchestra of Wallonia and the Kansai Philharmonic Orchestra in Japan.

He will be performing as a soloist and conducting the ATS ensemble for the concert. The program is set to include Czech composer Dvorak’s Romance in F Minor, French composer Ravel’s Tzigane, and Chausson’s Poeme — a unique French-style violin piece. In the second half of the concert, Dumay will be conducting the ensemble as they play Czech violinist and composer Josef Suk’s Serenade for Strings, a piece that Suk wrote while studying with Dvorak at the Prague Conservatory, only after his teacher suggested that he try writing lighter and more cheerful music. The concert will be held at the National Concert Hall on Dec. 5.

台灣絃樂團將於二0一二年歲末,邀請比利時依莉莎白小提琴比賽主審法國舉世聞名的小提琴家奧古斯丁.杜梅下個月合作演出。

一九四九年生於巴黎,杜梅十歲進入巴黎音樂院。十四歲在瑞士的蒙特勒音樂節舉辦獨奏會。一九七九年與卡拉揚指揮的柏林愛樂在巴黎與大提琴家馬友友合作,奠定了國際地位與聲望。除了演奏,杜梅任教於比利時伊莉莎白皇后音樂學院,近年也跨入指揮領域,現為比利時瓦隆尼亞皇家室內樂團與日本關西愛樂音樂總監。

此次與台灣絃樂團合作,杜梅除將擔任獨奏,也將指揮演奏捷克作曲家德佛沃克的《F小調浪漫曲》、法國作曲家拉威爾的《吉普賽人》與蕭頌代表法國特殊風格的小提琴作品《詩曲》,下半場則指揮台灣絃樂團演奏捷克小提琴家與作曲家約瑟夫‧蘇克《小夜曲》,該曲是蘇克在布拉格音樂學院跟德佛沃克學作曲時,被老師說要試著寫快樂、輕快一點的曲子後之創作。台灣絃樂團十二月五日在台北國家音樂廳演出。
