今报讯 从本月6日起,梅艳芳在香港红馆一连开了八场个人演唱会。虽然外界对阿梅目前的身体状况仍然说法不一,但昨天为梅艳芳此次香港“个唱”伴奏的上海交响乐团陈团长却告诉记者,梅艳芳的病情并没有传说中那么严重,她已经打算于明年再开五场演唱会。

Starting from Nov 6th, Anita Mui had 8 shows at Hong Kong Coliseum.  Though different versions about her health condition were circulated, Mr Chan, the leader and the conductor of the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra that played music for Anita Mui's concert, told the reporters that her condition was not that serious.  She planned to have 5 more shows next year.

  患癌症依然坚持“真唱”/Insisted to sing by herself

  昨天晚上,上海交响乐团一行80余人从香港返回上海。尽管旅途劳顿,但说起梅艳芳演唱会,陈团长却相当愉快地表示:“一切顺利,应该说很不错。”据陈团长介绍,梅艳芳的工作量很大,一场演唱会差不多要持续三个小时,每天都要到夜间十一点半才能结束,不过梅艳芳却没有体力不支的状况发生,而且越唱越有劲。最难能可贵的是,身患癌症的阿梅非但没有走音,还坚持八场全部“真唱”。陈团长说:“当初我们做了准备,一旦梅艳芳坚持不下来,我们就让表演嘉宾多唱一些歌,不过梅艳芳不但亲自完成20几首歌,还在舞台上讲了很多话,我们觉得她的精神状态不像外界说得那么糟糕。在演唱会上,梅艳芳有一个伴唱,如果真感觉状态不是太好,伴唱会帮着梅艳芳一起唱。”

Last night, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra of 80 musicians arrived at Shanghai from Hong Kong.  Though a bit tired from the trip, when talked about Anita Mui's Concert:  Mr. Chan happily said: [Everything went smoothly.  Pretty good.]  According to Mr. Chan, Anita Mui can handle lots of work.  Each concert was about 3 hours, every night it would finish at about 11:30p.m., But Anita Mui had no problem to cope with it physically.  In contrary, she sang better as the concert went on.  The most pleasing part is that Ah Mui was never off key, and she insisted to sing herself for all 8 shows.  Mr. Chan said: [At the beginning, we had made some preparation in case she could not go on.  We would let the guest singers sing more songs.  But Anita Mui didn't like, she insisted to finish 20 plus songs.  Also she talked a lot on the stage.  I feel her health condition wasn't as bad as it was circulated.  During the concert, Anita Mui had one vocal accompany ready, if she really felt that her condition wasn't that good, the vocal accompany would sing together with her."

  大牌艺人彬彬有礼

  陈团长说,香港歌迷对梅艳芳的热情让交响乐团的演奏家们非常感动,“场内坐席几乎场场爆满,不论梅艳芳在演唱还是在讲话,大家都给予非常热烈的掌声。就是梅艳芳换服装的间隙,我们演奏交响乐曲子的时候,观众也热情地鼓掌。”另外,让陈团长同样印象深刻的是,香港演艺界很团结,大牌艺人很懂得尊重他人的劳动。“你们可能也知道,梅艳芳演唱会每场都有大牌明星捧场,像成龙、刘嘉玲和张学友等等,他们送了很多花篮过来,而且演出结束的时候,这些大牌明星会站在过道,很有礼貌地给乐队鼓掌,这让我们很感动。”

Mr Chan said, he and all the musicians were very touched by the passion audience showed to Anita Mui .  "It was full house for every show.  No matter when Anita Mui was singing or talking, audience applauded vehemently.  When Anita Mui was changing, and we were playing music, audience applauded warmly too."  Besides Mr. Chan was deeply impressed by the unity of HK artists.  Those super stars know how to respect and appreciate the works of other people.  " You might know that during Anita Mui's concert, every night super stars came to her concert, such as Jacky Chan, Carina Lau, Jacky Cheung and etc.  They sent flower bouquets to Anita Mui.  Also when the concert finished , those super stars would stand aside at the corridor, and clapped politely when people of our orchestra passed by.  We were very touched.'

  梅艳芳演唱会明年还要加场

  之前曾有消息说,梅艳芳有意增加自己的“个唱”场次,后来考虑到她的身体状况,这个想法才不得不作罢,但陈团长昨天却向记者介绍了阿梅“个唱”没能加场的真正原因。“本来梅艳芳是打算在12日进行加场演出的,但我们当时没有准备,来不及了。后来他们又想在15日以后加,但我们和香港电声乐队都另有演出任务,时间上排不开。所以香港方面目前同我们商量的是在明年1月13日至17日再加演五场,估计这件事下周就可以最后确定下来。”(记者 刘思佳)

It was said that Anita Mui intended to have additional shows for her concert.  But in view of her health condition, they didn't really add more shows.  Yesterday Mr. Chan to the reporters the real reason for not to have additional shows.  "Originally Anita Mui intended to have additional show on 11/12.  However we didn't plan to have the additional show, so too late to have it.  Then they wanted to have more shows after 11/15.  But we and the HK band had other work to do, it can't fit into our schedule.  Therefore, Hong Kong organizers are negotiating with us to have 5 shows from January 13th to 17th.  Final decision should be known by next week.]
