Well, you know, he is barely tall enough for his feet to reach the pedals of his piano, but nine-year-old Marc Yu is already a veteran of the concert halls. His musical talent singled him out as something out of the ordinary at the tender age of two, and earned him comparisons to another child prodigy, Mozart. Well, we caught up with Marc Yu after he made his debut at the Royal Albert Hall in London and asked him for his thoughts on music and his future.
你知道嗎?他的個子很小,雙腳勉強才能踩到鋼琴的踏板,但是9歲的余峻承已經是音樂廳里的老手了。他的音樂天分讓他在年僅兩歲時便已顯得與眾不同,并被人拿來和另一名神童——莫扎特做比較。我們在余峻承在倫敦皇家阿爾伯特音樂廳首演后和他碰了面,并且問他對于音樂和他的未來的看法。

MARC YU, MUSICAL PRODIGY
音樂神童 余峻承

I can remember how I started to play. I was at a friend's party when I was about two-and-a-half and I heard some children singing "Mary Had a Little.
我還記得當初是怎么開始彈琴的。我兩歲半那年在朋友的聚會上聽到有小孩子在唱“瑪麗有只小綿羊“,于是我就跳到鋼琴邊彈出

Lamb," so I jumped on the piano and played out "Mary Had a Little Lamb." But I can remember very well when I was three making my concert debut on the piano playing a G Major sonatina by Beethoven. "Mary Had a Little Lamb" is, of course, a nursery rhyme, but you've got to start somewhere.
“瑪麗有只小綿羊“。可是我記得很清楚,3歲那年我舉行第一次鋼琴音樂會的時候,彈的是貝多芬的G大調小奏鳴曲。當然“瑪麗有只小綿羊“是一首兒歌,但是你總要有個開始吧。

My job is to interpret the meaning of the piece8 to the audience. That is actually my job. And Beethoven wants the artist to do that, so I don't think it's that hard for me.
我應該要做的是向觀眾詮釋那首曲子的意義,那其實是我的工作,貝多芬要鋼琴師做到那一點,所以我不覺得到1點很難做到。

Being called "Little Mozart" is flattering. But it might be a little bit silly because Mozart was a great composer. His mind automatically composed melodies. But my goal is to become a virtuoso, and Mozart was just a good pianist. He wasn't a grand virtuoso, like Franz Liszt.
說我是"小莫扎特"是一種恭維,但是這樣說有點傻.因為莫扎特是個偉大的作曲家。他的心里會自動譜出旋律,但是我的目標是成為一名鋼琴大師,莫扎特只是個不錯的鋼琴師,他并非鋼琴大師,這點和李斯特不一樣。

My goal isn't really to become a composer, but what people really mean by that is saying that Mozart is the general model for children who are amazing musicians, and my playing is brilliant for a child, so I usually take it as a compliment.
我的目標并非成為一名作曲家,但是大家會這么說的意思其實是,莫扎特是那些了不起的兒童音樂家的共同典范,而我的演奏就一個小孩而言算是很棒的,所以我通常都把它當成是一種贊美。
