专辑介绍:

  挪威女歌手Sissel(茜希尔),北欧家喻户晓的歌后.她的歌声冷艳高贵,透明纯净,音域相当广阔,音色控制能力极佳。除了有着恩雅般的空灵凄美,和北欧歌手特有的阳刚气质,更带有流行歌手难得的音色穿透力,一听就知道富有很好的声乐功底。Sissel曾经在1994年挪威冬奥会开幕式上献唱主题曲“FIRE IN YOUR HEART”;亦曾经作为“神秘女声”,被《泰坦尼克》一片作曲家詹姆斯-霍纳的相中,以其外冷内热,充满民谣气息的天籁声线,为电影作贯穿主题的和声配唱,强力渲染出电影悠远悲情的意境。 

    此张唱片收录她一场演唱会的实况。在管弦乐团的伴奏下,Sissel演唱了多首风格不同的歌曲,其中既有北欧风格强烈的民歌,也有一些美国流行经典,现场气氛十足,录音也非常自然,Sissel毫无矫饰的深情歌喉,加上伴奏中像真度极佳的挪威民间乐器,大气和细腻兼具,听来令人口沫生津,回味无穷。 

    宛如初春午后的微风般的没有负担,亦好比早晨小草上的露水清新脱俗……

Life and career

Sissel Kyrkjebø (born 24 June 1969), also simply known as Sissel, is a Norwegian soprano.

Sissel is considered one of the world's top crossover sopranos, her musical style ranges from pop recordings and folk songs, to classical vocals and operatic arias. She possesses a "crystalline" voice and wide vocal range, sweeping down from mezzo-soprano notes, in arias such as ‘Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix’ from Saint-Saëns's opera ‘Samson et Dalila’, to the F natural above soprano C.She sings mainly in English and Norwegian, and has also sung songs in Swedish, Danish, Irish, Italian, French, Russian, Icelandic, Faroese, German, Neapolitan, Māori, Japanese, and Latin.

She is well known for singing the Olympic Hymn (Hymne Olympique) at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway; for duets with Plácido Domingo, Charles Aznavour, José Carreras, Neil Sedaka, Warren G, Brian May, Bryn Terfel, Josh Groban, Diana Krall, Russell Watson and The Chieftains; and her participation on the Titanic film soundtrack.

Sissel received her first U.S. Grammy nominations on 6 December 2007 for a collaboration with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. ‘Spirit of the Season’, a collection of songs from the choir's 2006 Christmas concert at Temple Square, was nominated for the Best Classical Crossover Album of the Year, as well as Best Engineered Classical Album.

Sissel's combined solo record sales (not including soundtracks and other albums to which she contributed) amount to 10 million albums sold, most of them in Norway, a country with 5 million people. Her albums have also sold well in Sweden, Denmark and Japan. Together with Odd Nordstoga, they are the only Norwegian artists to have an album go 11 times platinum in album sales for ‘Strålande jul" (‘Glorious Christmas’).

The first name 'Sissel' is a Norwegian variant of 'Cecilia'. This is a popular first name from Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of church music.

In March 2007, a statistically representative sample of the Norwegian population chose her as the best female Norwegian musical artist in competition with 15 other big names, including Lene Marlin, Wenche Myhre, Kari Bremnes, and Bertine Zetlitz. In the summer of 2007, Sissel toured Norway, Sweden, France, and the US with a band. According to Sissel, this is a new concert format for her, without a choir. For the 2007 holiday season, PBS stations aired two concerts starring Sissel as part of the December pledge drive, one with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir titled ‘Spirit of the Season’, released on CD and DVD in late September 2007, the other with operatic legend and good friend José Carreras titled ‘Northern Lights’, released on CD and DVD in early November 2007. The albums of these concerts have proven to be extremely popular, with ‘Northern Lights’ reaching No. 10 in the Billboard Classical Crossover list, and ‘Spirit of the Season’ staying firmly planted at No.1 on the Billboard Classical charts for nine consecutive weeks.

The album ‘Northern Lights’ is a live recording of a concert at Bergstadens Ziir ("Jewel of the mountain town" in German), a church from the 17th Century in Røros, Norway (a 17th-Century Germany mining town). It was inspired by Norway's winter, the Blue hour, and the mystical ‘Northern Lights’.The music were arranged by Kjetil Bjerkestrand and the musicians sharing the stage with Sissel were the Trondheim Soloists, the Nidaros Cathedral Girls Choir, and Sissel's own band. The concert featured the tenor José Carreras, which performed the Julio Iglesias/Dolly Parton-duet "When You Tell Me That You Love Me" with Sissel. Sissel conducted an eight-city US tour in February 2008, singing selections from ‘Northern Lights’. A second leg of the tour covered more cities in the central and southern United States and lasted through April.

On 9 November 2009, Sissel released a new Christmas album called ‘Strålande Jul’ (Glorious Christmas), a project with Odd Nordstoga, another popular Norwegian singer.This album presents mostly lesser-known Christmas carols from Scandinavia. Sissel toured in both Norway and Sweden with Odd Nordstoga, The Real Group, Orsa spelmän, and Krister Henrikson. This album and their sold-out Christmas concerts received much critical acclaim in Norway and Sweden. The record company ‘Universal Music’ anticipated sales of about 100,000 CDs, but ultimately sold more than 400,000 in Norway in the first two months.

In May 2010, Sissel visited China with the Trondheim Soloists, on ‘Expo 2010’ in Shanghai.They performed songs like "Jag vill alltid følja dig", "Solveig's Song" and "Wait A While". Part of these concerts were broadcast on Norwegian television in the summer of 2010. On 20 September 2010, an unauthorized biography of ‘Sissel’, named Sissel, by Stig Nilsson, was released in Norway. Nilsson had written several songs for Sissel earlier in her career. In the book, Nilsson claims—among other things—that Sissel never became a worldwide superstar because she did not want to be. The book has only been released in Norwegian. On 15 November 2010, Sissel released a new album in Scandinavia called ‘Til deg’ (For You), recorded in ABBA's Polar Studios in Stockholm, Nidaros Studios in Trondheim, and in Nashville.This album shows a new direction in music and is heavily influenced by the style of country music, roots and folk. The album includes five songs sung in Swedish, three in Norwegian and two in English, including a Norwegian translation of Victoria Shaw's song "Never Alone", titled "Velkommen hjem", and a Swedish cover of Alison Krauss' song "Ghost in This House", called "Levande död". Sissel has collaborated with Mikael Wiehe, Espen Lind, and Py Bäckman on the new album.

In 2011 Sissel moved back to Norway after 22 years in Denmark. On 21 August 2011, Sissel performed the Norwegian hymn "Til ungdommen" by Nordahl Grieg at the National Memorial Ceremony for the victims of 22 July 2011 terrorist attacks.This ceremony took place in Oslo Spectrum and was broadcast live in all the Nordic countries. HM King Harald and HM Queen Sonja of Norway attended this ceremony with members from all the Nordic Royal Houses, and the prime ministers of Norway, Sweden, Denmark plus the presidents of Iceland and Finland. In September Sissel got her own stamp in Norway when a set of stamps of four Norwegian female performers was issued.

In December 2012 Sissel performed exclusively on two free Christmas-concerts in St John's Church, Bergen. This was the first time she performed a Christmas concert on her own in that church.

In November Sissel returned to the stage, after having a 3-year long break. She visited the Norwegian talkshow "Lindmo", where she performed "My Tribute" by Andrae Crouch. Sissel toured Norway in November and December with her Christmas concerts with a new mix of Christmas- and gospelsongs. She hired three gospelsingers from New York to back her up on these concerts.

On 17 May 2014 Sissel performed the Norwegian national anthem "Ja, vi elsker dette landet" and Griegs "Våren" on the Norwegian Constitution Day 2014 on Eidsvoll, Norway. HM The King and HM The Queen of Norway, HM The King and HM The Queen of Sweden, and HM The Queen and HRH The Prince Consort of Denmark were on this ceremony which was broadcast live on television. Later this year, in September Sissel performed with the Greek tenor Mario Frangoulis at a concert on Friday 5 September at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Greece. This concert, "Sing Me An Angel" was held in aid of the Non Profit Organisation "I Live For Me". They performed several duets like "You Raise Me Up", "Nights in White Satin", "Smile" and "What A Wonderful World". Sissel toured Norway and Sweden with her acclaimed Christmas concerts in November and December. In the fifth episode (of Season 3) of American television political drama series The Newsroom, which aired in December, a recording of Sissel singing Shenandoah was played in the death scene of Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston).

In 2015 Sissel performed as vocal soloist on 3 Titanic Live-concerts in Lucerne, Switzerland on 13, 14 and 15 March. And later in Royal Albert Hall, London on 27 April. Sissel performed the vocal lines of James Horner’s orchestral score as well as the solo soprano for "My Heart Will Go On". A few weeks later James Horner died when his single-engine Tucano aircraft crashed in the Los Padres National Forest. In December 2015 Sissel was as one of nine names nominated for the 2016 Hall of Fame at Rockheim in Norway.

The beginning of 2016 saw Sissel performing at a TV-broadcast Royal Gala on 17 January, celebrating HM The King and HM The Queen of Norway's 25 years anniversary as regents on the Norwegian throne. Sissel sang "For alltid" ("Forever"), written by Ole Paus.(虾米音乐)

Ernesto Cortazar专辑介绍:

Ernesto Cortazar,1940年出生在墨西哥一个音乐家庭。他的父亲是当时墨西哥最有名气的作曲家。在他13岁那年,他的父母因为车祸去世了。那时,他立志将来要出人头地,以慰藉父亲的亡灵。和祖母生活在一起的 Ernesto Cortazar 自学钢琴。

  他事业的起点,是在他17岁那年。他给一个叫《La Risa de la Ciudad》电影谱写了背景音乐和主题曲。片中主题歌曲《River of Dreams 梦之河》在1957年的哥伦比亚卡塔赫纳国际电影节上,获得拉丁美洲电影项的最佳背景音乐奖。从此,奠定了 Ernesto Cortazar 作为电影背景音乐作曲家和演奏家的基础。

  他曾为超过500部影片和25个电视系列作曲配乐,目前为止,他已在25个国家做过巡回表演并在包括克里姆林宫、墨西哥总统府等重要场所作过专场演出,他还为许多名人,如 Charlton Heston、Danny de Vito Michael Bolton、Octavio Paz、The Rolling Stones President Menem (Argentina)、Nikita Krushev (USSR)作过表演,目前为止,Ernesto Cortazar 总共出了30张个人专辑。

  Ernesto Cortazar 在1999年与当时很有名气的网络音乐网站 MP3.com 签约,委托该网站介绍推销自己的音乐。他在 mp3.com 保持着最高下载数(800万)和最高收入(30万美金)的纪录,并在 mp3.com 上持有17国语言的4个主页。遗憾的是,2003年11月份,MP3.com 被 CNET.com 兼并。以后新开张的 MP3.com 已经面目全非,尤其是放弃了全曲免费下载的服务,令人惋惜;以至于他的很多专辑找不到相关的专辑封面。

  一枚落叶,在风中轻舞飞扬,它是这个季节的信物,要邮寄到秋的尽头,去唤醒沉睡已久的冬;风鼓动着叶子,承载着叶子,承载这个季节的重量。叶子在风中眷恋着,如碟一般的飞翔,在疾风中叶子似乎要冲向云霄。它是想带走那片云,带走曾经用翠绿在蓝天上写下的诗行。如果可以,它愿意化成白云漫无目的的流浪 。(虾米音乐)

Lay down, lay down on my shoulder, take me to the water,
