About Songs

Our songs in performance are ranged from Classical music to Movie OST!

Canon in D

Pachelbel's Canon is the name commonly given to a canon by the German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel in his Canon and Gigue for 3 violins and basso continuo (German: Kanon und Gigue für 3 Violinen mit Generalbaß) (PWC 37, T. 337, PC 358), sometimes referred to as Canon and Gigue in D or simply Canon in D. It is his most famous composition. It was originally scored for three violins and basso continuo and paired with a gigue. Both movements are in the key of D major。This is one of the songs which is essential and most touching music duirng the wedding.

 

一首德国作曲家约翰·帕赫贝尔最著名的作品。因为它是最著名的卡农乐曲,有时也常以“卡农”代指。然而实际上卡农(Canon)並非曲名,而是一种曲式。卡农在字面上是「轮唱」的意思。这首名曲一直以来都受到男女老少的欢迎,在准新娘心目中的婚礼上是必不可少的浪漫曲目!

 

Brandenburg Concerto No. 3

The Brandenburg Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046–1051, original title: Six Concerts à plusieurs instruments)are a collection of six instrumental works presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, Margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt, in 1721 (though probably composed earlier). They are widely regarded as some of the best orchestral compositions of the Baroque era.

 

作品作於1721年,是巴哈呈獻給布蘭登堡公爵的,所以被稱為《布蘭登堡協奏曲》。這個時期正是巴哈創作的頂峰時期,作品豐富而優秀。在這組作品中,巴哈以鬼斧神工的熟練技巧展開動機,創作出優美的樂曲。这首协奏曲属于比较欢乐的曲目,轻快的节奏和连续不断的音符将吸引人们的目光!

Divertimento in F major, K. 138

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era. He wrote his Divertimento in F major, K. 138 (also 125c) for string quartet in 1722. There are no records, however, of any performance of this piece during Mozart's lifetime.

 

这首K138 是由古典乐大师莫扎特在1722年完成的F大調嬉遊曲,是以義大利風格的交響曲形式寫成,是首相當活潑的作品。

Eine kleine Nachtmusik , K.525

Eine kleine Nachtmusik (Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major), K. 525, is a 1787 composition for a chamber ensemble by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The German title means "a little serenade," though it is often rendered more literally but less accurately as "a little night music."[1] The work is written for an ensemble of two violins, viola, and cello with optional double bass, but is often performed by string orchestras

 

莫扎特于1787年8月24日在维也纳完成,并以当时最时髦的德文用语Eine Kleine Nachtmusik《一首小夜曲》命名。最早为弦乐合奏,后被改编为弦乐五重奏和弦乐四重奏,尤以弦乐四重奏最为流行,它是莫扎特所作十多首组曲型小夜曲中最受欢迎的一首。

Por una Cabeza

"Por una Cabeza" is a tango song with music and lyrics written in 1935 by Carlos Gardel and Alfredo Le Pera respectively. Tango scenes with "Por una Cabeza" appear in some of the following films or the song is mentioned: Scent of a Woman (1992), Schindler's List (1993), Easy Virtue (2008 film), and Planet 51 (2009).

 

Por una Cabeza是一首著名的西班牙語探戈歌曲。在許多電影當中出現過,包括《女人香》、《辛德勒的名單》里曾出現過,而其中又以《女人香》的宣傳最為人所知,經常在探戈場合中採用。

La Cumparsita

"La cumparsita" is a tango written in 1916 by the Uruguayan musician Gerardo Matos Rodríguez, with lyrics by Pascual Contursi and Enrique Pedro Maroni. It is among the most famous and recognizable tangos of all time. The title translates as "the little parade", and the first version was a tune with no lyrics. Later, Pascual Contursi wrote words to make the most popular version of the song. The lyrics begin: "The little parade of endless miseries..."

 

La cumparsita是一首非常有名的Tango曲, 由Gerardo Matos Rodriguez 作于1916年,当时Rodriguez只有17岁,是乌拉圭首都蒙特维多的一个建筑系学生。他将此曲以匿名的方式交给Roberto Firpo管弦乐团首演。

Merry Go Round of Life  - (Movie: Howl's Moving Castle from Joe Hisaishi)

Howl's Moving Castle (Japanese: ハウルの動く城 Hepburn: Hauru no Ugoku Shiro) is a 2004 Japanese animated fantasy film scripted and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. The film is based on the novel of the same name by British writer Diana Wynne Jones. The film was produced by Toshio Suzuki, animated by Studio Ghibli and distributed by Toho. Mamoru Hosoda, director of one episode and two movies from the Digimon series, was originally selected to direct but abruptly left the project, leaving the then-retired Miyazaki to take up the director's role.

 

宫崎骏继动画电影《千与千寻》之后,在2004年冬推出作品《哈尔的移动城堡》。改编自英国的儿童小说家黛安娜·W·琼斯的《魔法师哈威尔与火之恶魔》。这是继1990年《魔女宅急便》后,宫崎骏又一部带有浓厚原著色彩的作品。其主题曲《人生的旋转木马》的旋律时而优美时而轻快,也是此动画的一大焦点!
