海归弃百万年薪 复原千年前乐器
Music graduate recreates musical instruments in ancient China

【新闻速递】库莫奚、雅图罕、卓尔格……这些不是人名,而是距今1000多年前的老乐器,随着大清灭亡已失传百余年。29岁的沈阳人刘达眼下的工作就是将这些没人知道的老乐器“救活”。他放弃百万年薪的工作,辞职回到沈阳复原已经失传的老乐器。他复原的乐器都是辽代前后的,全国目前只有他会做。

2006年刘达以优异的成绩考入柴可夫斯基音乐学院,学习钢琴,辅修作曲, 2012年以优异的成绩硕士毕业。在乌克兰期间他多次举办个人钢琴演奏会,他记得有几次演奏时,台下第一排贵宾席坐的就是前乌克兰的“美女总理”季莫申科。未等到他毕业,中国驻乌克兰大使馆就邀请他加入,还有年薪百万做欧洲巡演钢琴家的机会。刘达说,在乌克兰每到重要节日,音乐家都只会使用和演奏本国本土的乐器和音乐,这让他重新审视自己手中的钢琴,“我是沈阳人,可对沈阳的老乐器却一无所知。 ”2007年,刘达利用每年一次放暑假的机会回沈阳找寻老乐器。 2012年毕业后,他拒绝百万年薪的钢琴家之路,毅然回到沈阳,开始了寻访老乐器的艰辛之路。

You may be familiar with a Chinese musical instrument called erhu, but maybe not the lesser known ones, such as the Hujia. These instruments are gradually dying out due to a lack of attention and preservation. But now, a young man in northeast China's Shenyang city is hoping to change that.

Liu Da, a graduate major in piano from Tchaikovsky Music Academy in Ukraine.

But rather than a pianist, Liu is now more like a carpenter for most of the day. And it's all for one thing: to recreate the musical instruments of ancient China.

"In Ukraine, during major festivals, the artists from around the world would suit up in their own traditional clothes and use their own musical instruments. So I want to present our culture, our music as well, from where I'm from," Liu said.

It usually takes between six to eight months to craft one ancient instrument.


Hujia

Liu has even learned the Manchu and Mongolian language, so he could consult historic files to make accurate designs.

During the last two years, he has replicated 23 different kinds of musical instruments from ancient China, some dating back over thousands of years.


Yuxun

"This musical instrument is called a Hujia, a reed pipe. It dates back to 3,000 B.C. It's very old and it has a very interesting history," Liu said.

Liu's next plan is to form a band with these 23 instruments to get an authentic flavor for ancient music.(英文文本 via CNTV)
