若手音楽家を世界の舞台へ 台湾の有名ピアニストの思い

Interview by The Central News Agency

16 Nov , 2016


(中央社)台湾で生まれ、国際的に活躍するピアニストのチェン・ルイビン(陳瑞斌)さん。チェンさんは近年、演奏団の創設や講座の開催などを通じ、台湾の若手音楽家を世界の舞台に羽ばたかせようと努力を続けている。チェンさんは今後の台湾の音楽振興政策のあり方について中央社に語った。 

「音楽の振興は文化部だけに頼ってはいけない」。制度化された、多部門連携での政策によってのみ、文化を発展させられるとチェンさんは力説する。教育部の児童に対する芸術教育から音楽団体への寄附に対する財政部の税額控除など、改善の余地は大いにあるという。 

設備面についても意見を述べたチェンさん。7080台のピアノが大学や地方自治体の文化センターに放置されていることを例に挙げ、台湾はハード面では高水準にある一方、市場を広げる良い政策がなく、音楽家の演奏機会が不足していると苦言を呈した。 

チェンさんは、音楽施設や芸術センターの運営において、フランスを参考にするほか、観客に定期的に会場に足を運んでもらえるよう、シーズンチケットの販売など長期的な取り組みを行うべきだと提案した。 

来年もスケジュールはびっしりだと笑うチェンさん。南部の屏東や嘉義で演奏を行うほか、米国やスペイン、コスタリア、ポーランドなどでも演奏会を開く予定だという。 


Comprehensive policy needed to sustain cultural development: pianist

Taiwan needs to have a more comprehensive government policy and better operation models for art institutes to promote culture and make it sustainable, a renowned Taiwanese artist told CNA recently.
Chen Rueibin (陳瑞斌), who has won 18 medals in various international piano competitions and performs worldwide, said a government-led, cross-department cultural policy is needed to make art thrive.
Taiwan is not short of top-level facilities but lacks a wholesome market to promote, for example, music, Chen said.
There are nearly 80 Steinway pianos in cultural centers and universities across Taiwan lying unused, because there are not enough concerts for pianists, Chen said.
"Promoting music is not the sole responsibility of the Culture Ministry," Chen said, stressing that it should involve other government agencies, including the Education Ministry.
The cultivation of a sense of appreciation of art and music should start at an early age, Chen said.
Local opera houses or music halls should also adopt more competitive business models, Chen said, suggesting that they could introduce season tickets, as is common practice in some foreign countries.
That way, audiences are more likely to develop long-term commitment to the art programs institutes have to offer instead of losing their interest after watching just one performance, he said.
