          At the Backs of King’s College there is a memorial stone in white marble
commemorating an alumnus of the College, renowned Chinese poet Xu Zhimo. Moving
to the UK in 1921, Zhimo spent a year studying at King’s, where he fell in love
not only with the romantic poetry of English poets like John Keats, but also
with Cambridge itself.
          在国王学院的后面,有一块汉白玉纪念石碑,纪念学院的一位校友,著名的中国诗人徐志摩。1921他移居英国,花了一年时间在国王学习,在那里他爱上的不只有英国诗人约翰.济慈的浪漫主义诗歌,还有剑桥本身。
          His poem, 再别康桥 (variously translated as Second Farewell to Cambridge), is
arguably his most famous poem, and is now a compulsory text on Chinese
literature syllabuses, learnt by millions of school children across the country
every year. The poem paints an idyllic portrait of King’s and the River Cam, and
serves as a reminder of Xu Zhimo’s fondness for his time in Cambridge.
          徐志摩的诗《再别康桥》可以说是他最著名的诗,它现在是中国语文教学大纲必修文本之一,中国每年有上百万学生学习。这首诗描绘了一幅田园诗般的国王学院和康河,并表现出徐志摩对剑桥时光的喜爱。
          While the poem has been set to music many times before, King’s has
commissioned the first musical setting of the text by a mainstream classical
composer. The new piece, by renowned English composer John Rutter, has been
written and recorded in celebration of the near 100-year link between King’s
College and Xu Zhimo, and has been released on 26 January 2018 on a new album on
the King’s College Record Label.
          虽然这首诗已多次被配乐演绎,但国王学院委托了主流古典作曲家根据诗的文字进行创作。新作品由著名的英国作曲家约翰.卢特(John
Rutter)担纲,以铭记国王学院和徐志摩之间近100年的不解之缘,并已由国王学院的唱片公司于2018年1月26日发布。
          “Many intellectual transformations happened for him while he was here and
in some ways the whole seed of his development as a person who became an
intellectual poet, through the medium of poetry, all sort of connected up with
his visit to Cambridge and the people we met.”
          “国王学院极大程度帮助徐志摩拓展了学识,并种下了日后成为一名才华横溢的诗人的种子,”国王学院副院长史蒂文.切力(Steve
Cherry)表示,“通过对这首诗的音乐创作,我们把学院的美丽点滴和徐志摩本人在这里的美好体验结合起来,重新带给因他而寻访的中国人民。”
          “John Rutter is a very resourceful composer, and I was delighted with the
way he conceived of doing this, presenting most of the text through the tenor
voice for which we engage the Chinese tenor. Well, I wanted to have a go myself
at making an arrangement of it which would express something of what we do at
King’s.”
          “很荣幸能够邀请到约翰.卢特(John
Rutter)来为我们作曲。他是个经验丰富的作曲家,这次也通过与一名中国男高音歌唱家的合作充分体现了我们想表达的主题。其实我一直希望能够做出一首表达出国王学院气质的作品”,负责这首《再别康桥》曲目的编曲家,同时也担任国王学院合唱团总指挥的史蒂芬.克劳伯里(Stephen
Cleobury)说。
          “The inspiration I think came from the poem which is on the tablet by the
bridge by the river camp here in the college. Apart from the tourist self and
the words, which of course are quite big elements in it, it’s not specifically
intended to be a Chinese piece. It’s the sort of arrangement I would make for
something like that, and it’s a very beautiful melody.”
          “康桥边石板上篆刻的诗给我带来了灵感。除去诗歌本身是中文作品及大量因此而来的中国游客等因素,我并未刻意追求音乐本身的中国化。我只是觉得这样的编曲和旋律是最适合的。”
