與Igor Stravinsky的錄音環節


4

在32:47時,斯特拉文斯基在錄製自己的《詩篇交響曲》的同時,又對樂團說

“I give you one bar for nothing in four and the bar before nine is in three, six.”

這僅僅是計算樂隊人數的一種方法嗎?我不太確定,因為斯特拉文斯基此後不久的動作並沒有反映出這一點,至少三,六部分不是。

The bar before rehearsal number nine is in 3/2 and the problem is Stravinsky can't decide whether to conduct half notes ("in three") or quarter notes ("in six"). "One bar for nothing in four" means he's going to give them four silent beats before they start (i.e. a count-in). He announces that he's going to conduct the bar in three ("the bar before nine is in three"), then immediately corrects himself ("in six").

  • First take: his four-beat count-in is clear enough and he conducts the bar in six.
  • Second take: he starts the bar in quarter notes and then changes to half notes in the middle.

The tempo is rather fast to conduct quarters but it's hard to get the orchestra rhythmically synchronized if he conducts half-notes. In the end they decide that's a bad place to start and go back a bit further.
