很久沒po網誌了。今天的主題是要感謝兩位台灣人幫我完成八年多來的夢想。首先是傑斯汀站長, 因為沒有他幫我找站友幫忙, 我的「夢想」就不會實現。其次(其實照理說這人物比較重要),要感謝的是幫我編譜的Mr M (or Miss M?). Mr M的性向是男生還是女生我不知道,因為我不認識他。但是,令我感動的是,不認識我的傑斯汀站長以及Mr M卻願意幫我編譜。

什麼譜呢? 就是年少時的紀新彈奏的「甜蜜的家庭」。(不過此網站好像無效了。The website doesn't seem to be working any more. But you can listen to the music here. 按左就可聽到當年的紀新演奏該曲。) 看到這曲目可別大笑啊!若是您有機會聽到紀新演奏的版本,您就會明白我當年為何感動了。因為那首曲子的左手伴奏帶有現代流行曲的配樂風格,是由一位日本音樂家改編的。


我不認識傑斯汀站長以及Mr M,而他們卻毫無怨尤、無條件地幫我費時找人編譜及完成寫譜的動作(Mr M可是一邊聽這首曲子一邊寫下該譜的啊)!讓我真的深深以身為台灣人為傲。只有台灣人會那麼熱情、熱心助人。謝謝!謝謝傑斯汀站長以及Mr M!


I haven't written anything for a while.  Today, I wanna thank two people for completing my dream which I had had since I was 18 years old.  Ever since I first heard the music "Home, sweet home" by Evgeny Kissin on TV, I had been searching for the sheetmusic endlessly.  Don't laugh when you see the title of the music, as you'll agree with me when you hear Kissin playing this masterpiece.  It was not easy to look for the music.  I had tried to find it both online and in the CD stores, but it was not a CD. (Not sure how to call that in English.  I would have had to buy a gramophone to play it.) But just a few days ago, I was surprised to find out that there are so many accesses to Kissin's music on the Internet... Best part is that "Home, sweet home" is accessible, too.  So I sent the link to the music to Justin, politely asking him whether it was possible or not for him to listen to "Home, sweet home" and write it down.  He then asked some of his friends, one of whom said that he could do that for me.


So, now I wanna thank Justin.  Without his help, I wouldn't have got my "dream" realized.  I also have to thank Mr M for "his" contribution and hard work.  (This person is actually more important... I really don't know his gender, as Justin used a male pronoun to refer him, but this person's username looks like a female one.)  Mr M listened to "Home, sweet home" and then "he" finally got the sheetmusic finished.


There is no way for me to express how grateful I am and to thank Justin and Mr M for their unconditional help.  Both Justin and Mr M don't know me at all, but they were willing to make time to "compose" the music for me.  Their enthusiasm, kindness and effort have truly touched my heart and made me feel more proud of being Taiwanese.


Thanks once again, Justin and Mr M.


P.S. 天哪! 用中文表達只要三段耶. 但是用英語, 我卻多了那麼多行…. 是我太多話還是怎樣ㄚ??
OMG! I only wrote three paragraphs in Chinese, and yet in English, I wrote so much… Did I write too many redundant words in English? Maybe I really don't know how to express concisely in English. :P

  • 您好
    今天突然想起這首當年聽到久久無法忘懷的Kissin Home Sweet Home. 好多年前曾經找過,但,卻一直找不出Kissin 的版本。從您的網站連到tinitinpiano 但不知為何,檔案卻都開啟不了。 想冒昧請問您,是否能把樂譜存成PDF檔,不知能否跟你要這份譜? 真的很抱歉打擾您。

    Thank you very much.
  • 我只有OVE版本,
    可是我想應該沒有軟體可以將OVE版轉成PDF版。
    這樂譜的紙本版我放在老家,可是我得花時間找。
    我看你的IP,你住在美國吧?
    如果可以,請另外留悄悄話給我,
    給我你的連絡方式,
    我回老家如果找得到樂譜就copy樂譜給妳吧。

  • 非常謝謝您的回覆。
    因為我用mac 所以在print 那地方可以直接把檔案另儲存成PDF 檔。我之前曾經用過overture 但不知為何最近都無法再使用。如果還要讓你回家找,那真的真的太麻煩了。不好意思!
    我在好多好多年前聽到這首Home Sweet Home 很難忘懷,直到去New York 念書,Kissin 來學校開演奏,在他偷偷來學校rehearse 時跑去給他簽名,到現在都忘不了。之前曾經問老師是否知道Kissin 彈的這個版本,他說不清楚。
    前天突然想到這首曲子,剛好在Youtube 上這幾天有人upload yokohama 的recital,就找到您這邊來。
    我目前住在美國洛杉磯,您是在英國嗎?如果還要您回老家找,那太麻煩您了。
    再次謝謝您。
  • 我已經回到台灣囉!
    (看來妳都沒注意到我部落格連結-我的台北生活,
    嗚嗚~~開玩笑。)
    我其實有Kissin在橫濱首演的video檔案,
    本來想說寄給你樂譜的同時也給影片檔呢!
    結果沒想到是你先跟我說有人已經將影片傳到youtube了!
    感謝!
    (看來既然有人大方分享紀新橫濱首演影片,
    大家都可以自己下載了...)
    因為我不太會用影片分割軟體,
    不然我早就自己傳這個紀新首演影片了。
    顯然當年在部落格寫下這感謝文果然是會幫助我找到知音的。:)
    Anyway, 我回老家時會努力找出這樂譜,
    不然就是直接印出。
    從小廷廷的窩顯示,
    該譜是由日本音樂家Shigeaki Saegusa改編而成。
    當然您得另用悄悄話留下通訊地址好方便我寄給你。

    P.S. 我多年前在電視上看到紀新演奏Home Sweet Home也是為之動容。我們都是音樂愛好人,也都深深為紀新精湛的琴藝著迷。

  • 不好意思阿,上次寫完留言,才看到你台北的Blog。
    非常謝謝你 :) 我可能近期會搬家(美國)四月分應該會有新住址。 搬家完或許會回台灣幾個星期,不過還不確定。如果到時有回到台灣,就給你我台灣的住址,這樣比較不麻煩。
    再次謝謝你 :) 現代的pianist (I mean 還活著的 :P) Kissin 算是我很喜歡的鋼琴家之一 :)
  • 好啊!到時候我一知道地址,再寄給你樂譜囉!
    其實我聽過紀新的獨奏會,
    不過當時我並沒有特別感動...
    聽過的音樂會不多,
    但是只有台灣鋼琴家劉孟捷以及有一位德國鋼琴家(忘記名字)
    讓我第一次聽到,
    覺得他們彈奏的音樂跟從CD播放出來的品質是一樣好的。
    德國鋼琴家的CD我放在老家...
    等找到再修改這篇回應。:P
