    The Orchestra is thrilled to be playing at festivals this year, including the Austrian Ukulele Festival in Graz, Underneath the Stars, Barnsley and the Sidmouth Folk Week. We will be bringing our unique combination of the well-known and the unknown; off-the-wall music and re-imagined overworked classic songs. In the early days of the UOGB sometimes the comments included views that the repertoire was too challenging or far-out.

大不列颠尤克里里乐团

 


大不列颠尤克里里乐团由一群多才多艺的尤克里里演奏家组成,弹奏着用零钱就可以购买的 乐器,并坚信任何风格的音乐都可以用尤克里里琴重新诠释。

大不列颠尤克里里乐团的音乐会就是一场用弦乐弹拨、精彩有趣使人手舞足蹈的摇滚告别, 仅仅使用“玩具吉他”和声音的荟萃来碰撞后朋克表演和经典老歌,构成悦耳动听的轻快娱 乐享受。没有鼓、钢琴、背景音轨或是班卓琴,也没有音高转换或是电声花样,唯有尤克里 里琴音和演唱或是一点点的口哨,却能融合于一体呈现大乐团般惊人的丰富性。观众们能和 乐团共度一段美妙的时光,从柴可夫斯基到涅槃乐队,经过奥蒂斯·雷丁和意式西部片电影 原声,乐团带领我们踏上只有手提行李的“世界旅行”,并接连不断拨动听众的心弦。

无论乐器是小是大,音域是高还是低,弹奏的是精巧的乐曲、简单音调亦或复杂和弦,还是 身着正式的晚装一本正经的室内音乐会,乐团总是能够灵活运用乐器突破限制,创造出旋律 的自由,显现出未知的音乐洞察力。流行和高雅音乐的美丽和空虚,浮夸和琐碎,动人和可 笑之处同时被展现出来。有时一首听上去傻傻的乐曲比高雅艺术更能打动观众;有时太当真 的音乐也会变得滑稽有趣。一旦你被大不列颠尤克里里乐团的音乐哲学所感染,你可能不再 认为音乐是一成不变的。
