ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Daria van den Bercken - Pianist
Daria van den Bercken has played piano with major Dutch orchestras, and performed many a recital in her country’s famed concert halls. But her larger vision is to bring classical music to the masses.

Why you should listen

Pianist Daria van den Bercken makes classical music lovers — and those who had no idea that they appreciated this kind of music — listen to classic composers with fresh ears. She has played with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra and the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, and is a regular guest at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. But it’s bringing classic music to unexpected audiences where her passion engages.

While sick with the flu several years ago, Daria discovered the keyboard compositions of George Frideric Handel. She wanted to bring these beautiful works to the masses. With her project ‘Handel at the Piano,’ she played these pieces in unexpected places — even flying with her piano 25-feet over the audience at the Virada Cultural Festival in São Paulo, Brazil. Through a series of concerts, and an album, she asked audiences to rethink Handel.

Daria’s latest project is 'Keys to Mozart,' an effort to breathe new life into Mozart’s piano works. She is preparing to record an album for Sony Classical and will play a series of concerts too.

越多人越好。
02:01
It started開始 a couple一對 of years年份 ago.
22
109829
2115
大概幾年前,
02:03
I was sitting坐在 at home on the couch長椅 with the flu流感
23
111944
3431
我感冒窩在家裡的沙發上,
02:07
and browsing瀏覽 the Internet互聯網 a little,
24
115375
2122
上網看了一下,
02:09
when I found發現 out that Handel亨德爾 had written書面 works作品
25
117497
2823
突然發現韓德爾有寫過
02:12
for the keyboard鍵盤.
26
120320
2000
鋼琴的琴譜。
02:14
Well, I was surprised詫異. I did not know this.
27
122320
2317
我當然很訝異,因為先前不知道,
02:16
So I downloaded下載 the sheet music音樂 and started開始 playing播放.
28
124637
4383
所以我就下載了譜開始彈。
02:21
And what happened發生 next下一個 was
29
129020
1900
接下來,
02:22
that I entered進入 this state of pure,
30
130920
3571
我進入到很純粹的狀態,
02:26
unprejudiced不帶偏見 amazement驚愕.
31
134491
2869
完全是種很單純的訝異。
02:29
It was an experience經驗
32
137360

這種經驗
02:31
of being存在 totally完全 in awe威嚴 of the music音樂,
33
139700
3127
全然是對音樂的敬畏,
02:34
and I had not felt that in a long time.
34
142827
3780
而我已經好久沒有感受到了。
02:38
It might威力 be easier更輕鬆 to relate涉及 to this when you hear it.
35
146607
4153
你們可能要聽到才會比較好理解。
02:42
The first piece that I played發揮 through通過
36
150760
3291
我當時彈的第一首曲子
02:46
started開始 like this.
37
154051
2789
一開始是這樣的。
02:49
(Music音樂)
38
157845
5947
(音樂)
03:14
Well this sounds聲音 very melancholic憂鬱, doesn't it?
39
182950
3730
聽起來很悲傷,對吧?
03:18
And I turned轉身 the page and what came來了 next下一個
40
186680
3034
但當我翻到下一頁,
就變成這樣。
03:21
was this.
41
189714
1958
03:23
(Music音樂)
42

(音樂)
03:50
Well, this sounds聲音 very energetic有活力, doesn't it?
43
218624
4066
聽起來很有活力不是嗎?
03:54
So within a couple一對 of minutes分鐘,
44
222690
2700
才幾分鐘的時間,
03:57
and the piece isn't even finished yet然而,
45

整首曲子都還沒完,
03:59
I experienced有經驗的 two very contrasting對比 characters人物:

47

3622
美麗的憂愁與十足的活力。
04:07
And I consider考慮 these two elements分子 to be

我認為這兩種元素
04:09
vital重要 human人的 expressions表達式.
49
237337
2803
是人類情緒的命脈。
04:12
And the purity純度 of the music音樂 makes品牌 you hear it

而音樂的純粹
讓你能快速直接地感受到。
04:14
very effectively有效.
51
242815
3432
04:19
I've given特定 a lot of children's兒童 concerts音樂會
52
247893
2340
我去很多兒童演奏會表演過,
04:22
for children孩子 of seven and eight years年份 old,
53
250233
3138
台下小孩約七、八歲,
04:25
and whatever隨你 I play, whether是否 it's Bach過獨身生活, Beethoven貝多芬,
54
253371
3814
不管我彈什麼,巴哈、貝多芬,
04:29
even Stockhausen豪森,
55
257185
1575
甚至是史托克豪森,
04:30
or some jazzy爵士 music音樂,
56
258760
2992
或是爵士樂也好,
04:33
they are open打開 to hear it,
57
261752
2149
他們都敞開心胸聆聽,
04:35
really willing願意 to listen,
58
263901
1287
真的很願意聽,
04:37
and they are comfortable自在 doing so.
59
265188
3528
也覺得這麼做很自在。
04:40
And when classes come in
60
268716
1534
但換成另一組小朋友的時候,
04:42
with children孩子 who are just a few少數 years年份 older舊的,
61
270250
3449
他們的年紀大一點,
04:45
11, 12, I felt that I sometimes有時 already已經 had trouble麻煩
62
273699
4848
大約十一、十二歲,
要讓他們達到剛剛那種境界
就比較困難了。
04:50
in reaching到達 them like that.
63
278547
2093
04:52
The complexity複雜 of the music音樂 does become成為 an issue問題,
64
280640
3667
音樂的複雜性變成問題。
04:56
and actually其實 the opinions意見 of others其他
65
284307
3833
其實,他人的意見,
05:00
parents父母, friends朋友, media媒體 — they start開始 to count計數.
66
288140
4683
來自父母、朋友、媒體的意見
也開始造成影響。
05:04
But the young年輕 ones那些, they don't question
67
292823
2508
但年紀比較小的孩子,
他們不會質疑自己的想法。
05:07
their own擁有 opinion意見.
68
295331
3341
05:10
They are in this constant不變 state of wonder奇蹟,
69
298672
2992
他們還處在對每件事都好奇的階段,
05:13
and I do firmly牢牢 believe that we can keep listening
70
301664
3690
而我堅信,我們可以繼續
用這些七歲孩童的方式聆聽,
05:17
like these seven-year-old七十歲 children孩子,
71
305354
2284
05:19
even when growing生長 up.
72
307638
2474
不管我們幾歲。
05:22
And that is why I have played發揮
73
310112
2149
這就是為什麼
我不只在演奏廳裡表演,
05:24
not only in the concert音樂會 hall大廳
74
312261
2340
05:26
but also on the street, online線上, in the air空氣:
75
314601
4329
也會在街上、網路上或空中表演:
05:30
to feel that state of wonder奇蹟,
76
318930
2567
去感受那種好奇的心境、
05:33
to truly listen,
77
321497
2182
真正地聆聽,
05:35
and to listen without prejudice偏見.
78
323679
3544
以不帶偏見的方式聆聽。
05:39

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Daria van den Bercken - Pianist
Daria van den Bercken has played piano with major Dutch orchestras, and performed many a recital in her country’s famed concert halls. But her larger vision is to bring classical music to the masses.

Why you should listen

Pianist Daria van den Bercken makes classical music lovers — and those who had no idea that they appreciated this kind of music — listen to classic composers with fresh ears. She has played with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, the Arnhem Philharmonic Orchestra and the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, and is a regular guest at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. But it’s bringing classic music to unexpected audiences where her passion engages.

While sick with the flu several years ago, Daria discovered the keyboard compositions of George Frideric Handel. She wanted to bring these beautiful works to the masses. With her project ‘Handel at the Piano,’ she played these pieces in unexpected places — even flying with her piano 25-feet over the audience at the Virada Cultural Festival in São Paulo, Brazil. Through a series of concerts, and an album, she asked audiences to rethink Handel.

Daria’s latest project is 'Keys to Mozart,' an effort to breathe new life into Mozart’s piano works. She is preparing to record an album for Sony Classical and will play a series of concerts too.
