一位來自西班牙Granada的朋友 Alberto Cuellar

在1月14日下午,筆者剛從香港商會與海關合辦的講座後返回公司途中,突然接到多年前的學生黃文錦來電急call。原來他說有一位來自西班牙Granada的朋友 - 阿爾貝托˙古埃亞(Alberto Cuellar),是一位專業吉他演奏家(古典與Flamenco),他於1月13日剛從西班牙抵達香港,逗留兩天後便轉飛北京,所以他希望在1月14日當天能跟筆者見面。因此,為了能達成這個安排,筆者終於到了晚上九時(下班後)才能有時間,在佐敦的餐廳見面及一同吃晚飯;但是由於我還要回家準備明早的會議議情之原故,筆者在十一時後便與Alberto及黃文錦道別了。

在短短兩個多小時的會談中,Alberto給我介紹了一些有關他的背境及發展目標。原來他祖父Pepe Cuellar是Granada著名Flamenco吉他演奏家,曾參加1922年在當地舉行的首屆佛拉門哥歌唱比賽,並榮獲最佳伴奏吉他手之獎項。因此,Alberto在祖父的影响下也很喜歡伴奏唱歌!另外,Alberto說他在倫敦學習時,也曾探訪過筆者老師 Paco Peña哩。

而其後我們亦談到Flamenco在中國現時的情況,因Alberto在去年先後兩次參加了在杭洲及西安的演出活動,對國內的情況也有點了解。大致上,Alberto也認同筆者的說法是國內學習Flamenco吉他的學生,普遍對compàs的掌握欠穩及太急於求成(以彈樂曲為主) ,以致往往忽略了在節奏基礎上的磨練,導致水準難以提升。

所以,Alberto說他準備在北京停留一段時間,並開班教授正確的Flamenco吉他compàs的課程,目的就是為了針對上述情況而設定。
當筆者知悉Alberto的計劃後,即時答應會全力支持他在北京的教學和推廣的工作,因為這是一個非常難得的機會,能有一位像Alberto這麼專業及充滿熱誠的演奏家來親自指導國內學生;筆者絕對相信對中國Flamenco將來的水平肯定提高不少。因此,在當晚聚會完結時,筆者告之Alberto會聯絡一些在北京的朋友跟他會面,以協助他日後在當地開展教學和推廣的工作。

而最近筆者也剛收到Alberto在北京的通訊住址及電話,若大家有興趣隨他學琴的話,也歡迎讀者直接跟他聯絡 :

北京市朝陽區利擇中街望京花園新區 (地鉄站WangJingXi附近) 郵編:100102

北京聯絡電話號碼:13520240109 ** Alberto能說英語及一點點普通話**

最後,如大家在聯絡Alberto方面有什麼疑問,也可透過下列電郵與我查詢,謝謝大家的支持!
