音樂帶來的快樂

By Anthony Holden
安東尼·霍頓

The joys of family and friendship (not to mention poker) come top of my list.
家庭和友情給我帶來的快樂是最多的(和家人朋友打牌就更不用說了)。

But for those of us who savour the selfish pleasures of living alone, these days they are not always instantly available. Yet we can always go to the theatre. Or a (classical) concert.
但對于像我這樣一人享受獨居之樂的人來說,家人和朋友不是想找就馬上能找到的,不過我們總是可以去劇院看戲或者去聽(古典)音樂會。

The theatre has been my lifelong home from home, from the National Theatre and RSC via the West End to my grandchildren's school plays.
劇院永遠是我的第二個家,無論是倫敦西區的國家大劇院和皇家莎士比亞劇團,還是我孫子孫女的學校劇場都不例外。

I will always remember my youngest son Ben, then nine, winning his school singing competition with a feisty rendition of Luck, Be A Lady Tonight! from our favourite musical Guys And Dolls.
我最小的兒子本九歲的時候在學校的歌唱比賽中獲勝了。他精神抖擻地唱了一曲《Luck, Be A Lady Tonight!》(這是出自我們最喜歡的音樂劇《紅男綠女》的歌),我永遠都不會忘記當時的情景。

Fifteen years ago when I was chronically depressed after the failure of my second marriage, I could find consolation only in music - anything from Mozart's Cosi fan tutte to Ennio Morricone's sloshy theme from the film The Mission, Gabriel's Oboe.
十五年前,由于第二次婚姻的失敗,我患上了嚴重的抑郁癥,唯有音樂能給我慰藉——無論是莫扎特的《女人皆如此》還是恩尼奧·莫里科內為電影《教會》創作的主題曲,只要是音樂都能讓我舒心。
