Lesson9:  莫扎特   Mozart (奥地利)

原文:

U: Uncle      N: Niece

 

N:  Uncle Jeremy, what's that beautiful music you're listening to? I mean, it sounds  familiar, but I don't know what it is.

U: It's Mozart, Katie. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This piece is called Lucio Silla and was written in around 1770.

N: Wow! That's a long time ago. I think it's unbelievable that we still listen to his music today. Didn't he start composing when he was 2 years old or something?

U: Actually he was 5 years old, but yes, he was very young indeed.  When he was 6 he played for the Bavarian Elector and Empress.

N: That's amazing! When I was 6 years old, I was playing with dolls, not performing in public to famous people.

U: His father decided he should cash-in on Wolfgang's talents, so the family set off- on a trip which took them to London and Paris.

N: So, his father wanted to make some money and took Mozart all over the world to play in public.

U: He played for the English and French royal families, who were astonished by his talents. After that, they headed for Vienna.

N: He must have had a very busy life as a child. Where was he when he wrote the piece we are listening to now?

U: He was in Italy at that time, acquainting himself with Italian styles.  During that visit he also wrote Mitridate, which is also an opera and a serenata for performance in Milan.

N: He must have still been a teenager at that time, maybe a little younger than me. I was scared when I moved away to go to university, but he had been working around the world before he was 18.

 

U: Then, in 1773 he went to Vienna again, where he wrote a set of string quartets and, on his return, wrote a group of symphonies  including  his two earliest, No. 25 in G Minor and 29 in A.

N: When did he die? Was he old?

U: He died in 1791 and was buried in a Vienna suburb, with little ceremony and in an unmarked grave.

N: He died young, must have been because his life was so busy.



译文:

U:叔叔       N:侄女

 

N:杰里米叔叔,你在听什么美妙的音乐?我是说,听起来那么耳熟,可就是不知道是什么曲子。

U:凯蒂,这是莫扎特的曲子,沃尔夫冈?阿玛多伊斯?莫扎特。这是他的歌剧《卢齐奥?西拉》,大约写于1770年。

N:哇,那是很早以前的曲子了。现在我们还听他的音乐,真太令人难以置信了。他是不是2岁左右就开始作曲了?

U:实际上,那时他5岁了,不过年纪确实很小。他6岁时就为巴伐利亚选帝侯和王后演奏曲目。

N:真了不起!我6岁时在玩洋姓娃,而不是在公共场合给名人表演节目。

U:他父亲认定应该及时利用沃尔夫冈的天才赚钱,所以全家动身去伦敦和巴黎旅行。

N:那就是说他父亲想要挣钱,于是就带着莫扎特去世界各地公开演出。

U:他为英法两国的皇室演奏,这些人却被他的天才惊呆了。此后,他们又去了维也纳。

N:对他这样一个孩子来说,日子一定过得非常繁忙。你现在听的这首曲子,是他在哪儿写的?

U:当时他在意大利,正在努力熟悉意大利的风格。在那段访问期间,他还写了《米特里达特》,这也是为米兰演出而写的歌剧和合唱剧。

N:那时,他一定还是个十几岁的孩子,也许比我的年龄还小一点。我离开家去上大学时还害怕呢,可是他却不到18岁已经在世界各地演出了。

U:后来在1773年,他又去了维也纳,在那里写出了一组弦乐四重奏曲。回来后,又写了一组交响曲,包括他最早的两个曲目:《G小调第25号交响曲》和《A大调第29号交响曲》。

N:他什么时候去世的?年纪很大吗?

U: 1791年去世,当时没有举行什么仪式,就埋在了维也纳郊区一个不被人注意的坟墓里。

N: 他英年早逝一定是因为他生活节奏太快了。
