【高中毕业后因为时局的关系,邓韵的大学梦破灭了,这是刚入伍不久,与战士歌舞团“学员队”的姐妹在一起。那时候她还叫邓韵儿。大约摄于1966年,离镜头最近的就是邓韵。】 / 【仍然是“学员队”队员,双手搭在别人肩上的那位,典型的老广MM的样子。大约是1967年的照片。】 / 【大约从1969年起,邓韵已经把名字里那“”字去掉并开始登台独唱了。据说第一次上台独唱,一曲歌罢鞠躬谢幕,台下喊“要行军礼”,于是她抬起左手就是一个标准的军礼,惹得满堂哄笑自己却不知道为啥。“文艺兵”里恐怕这类笑话不会少。对,最左边那个。】

中国当代重要的一首女高音作品《毛主席关怀咱山里人》

《毛主席关怀咱山里人》由女词作家郭兆甄作词,郑秋枫作曲。这是二人在广州军区战士歌舞团当创作人员时候合作的一首歌曲。具体创作年份不详,猜测是在
70年代初期。

这首歌曲无论从创作还是从演唱角度看,都是一部颇有特色的成功之作。音乐舒展而宽广,热情洋溢,具有云南少数民族民间音乐的风格。这是一个二部曲体加引子和尾声组成的歌曲。前奏优雅宽广,描写出莽莽高山峻岭的景象。歌曲的引子具有山歌风格,好像站在山头的人向乡亲们报告好消息。在欢快的两小节间奏之后,是歌曲的
A段,由方整的四组组成,跌宕起伏的旋律刻画出山乡人民迎接医疗队进山的欢乐情形。B段以节奏的切分和演唱力度、方法的不断变化与A段形成对比,描写出医疗队为乡亲医病以及乡亲们对他们的赞颂。尾声部分音区较高,宽广而激越,造成全曲的最高潮。全曲在花腔式的华彩乐句后结束。
[赵丽萍在《中国艺术歌曲选 1967-1977(上册)》P77上的文章] 网友老丁满的分析:

这首歌音域从
“向上跨两个八度,千回百转的“罗西尼式的”华丽装饰音比比皆是,演唱情绪、力度起伏多变,既有宽广悠远的长乐句,又有短促、跳跃的连续顿音,难度应该说相当之大。这款录音的演唱者是当时广州军区政治部(战士)歌舞团当家“花旦”邓韵,录音时间为1973年。上来,散板(自由)速度的引子有一种山歌风味儿,一共四个乐句(有别于词句),邓韵演唱得豪放而不乏细腻,虽说自由,但并不松散,句句都准确地落在节点上。两个小节欢快的乐队间奏过后是歌曲的A段,也由四句组成。伴着跋山涉水的行进节拍,活泼欢快、音高变化幅度较大但不失方正,处理得坚实而顺畅,与接下来的以切分节奏和较大的力度变化以及唱法多变的B段(从“巡诊到田头”“铁树开红花”起)形成对比。B段的演唱邓韵在力度、句逗上把握得相当准确到位,唱得起落有致、极富弹性。两段歌词中间的乐队间奏在前次的基础上平行上移了三度半,形成一种变调的效果,给人一种“柳暗花明”面貌一新的感觉,在两个半小节里完成了F大调→B大调→F大调的转调过程,不露声色、不留痕迹,郑老师真的是大处着眼、小处着手,细腻得到了家。在二次重复的B段结尾处(“心向北京城”)有一个渐慢同时渐弱的处理将歌曲顺势推进到相对自由、越发高亢的华彩式的尾声。这个尾声既是整首歌曲出现高潮的段落,也是最能检验演唱者功底的地方,尤其在后一个“红色山乡万年春”一句,邓韵充分展示了自己在气息和音高控制上的非凡技巧:在经过一串轻巧自如的花腔连顿音后毫不含糊地就唱出了那个令人生畏的“高音,而且唱得不见一点变形。记得文革时期比较有影响的花腔女高音歌曲有两首,除了这首外,还有就是孙家馨演唱的《千年的铁树开了花》。那首歌在音高上来的还要猛一些,最高音达到了小字三组的降d,即比这首“山里人”的最高音还要高出半度!但个人感觉,作为本来就是花腔女高音的孙家馨的高音唱得比起女高音、女中音“通吃”的邓韵来,显得略为单薄一点。不过邓韵当初要不是听了郭淑珍的劝告,及时调整用声方法并改唱次高音,象这样的“”歌继续再唱下去,彻底倒了嗓子也是有可能的,这是后话。

我知道的邓韵

我第一次知道邓韵,并不是她的这首《毛主席关怀咱山里人》,而是在改革开放之初流行音乐悄然席卷大陆时候邓韵的表现。那时候邓韵似乎巧巧地唱过一些轻松惬意娓娓道来的小歌儿。邓韵的老师郭淑珍对邓韵这段时间一猛子唱
n“流行歌曲”颇有微辞。有个文章写道“上世纪70年代末,港台流行歌曲正在它发展的巅峰,酣歌劲舞,歌声舞影翩然闯入刚刚打开“南风窗”的内地歌坛,锐不可当。邓韵录了一盘带通俗元素的创作歌曲磁带《林中小路》,郭淑珍老师说:“哟,你居然还有这本事!”又说:“你要是想发财,可以去香港干这个(唱通俗歌曲);不过,你的条件适合搞歌剧……搞歌剧可能一辈子受穷,你可要想好了。” 当年一起玩耍的一个小伙伴家里似乎有总政歌舞团的亲戚,她经常讲述一些军内文艺工作者的小八卦给我们听,我们都羡慕她的消息渠道。但是现在看来,有些说法也不靠谱,比方说,我就记得,她说过邓韵跟邓丽君有亲属关系。只是,如果不是把邓丽君和邓韵联系上,我也许就不会那么小就记住邓韵了。
邓韵在广州军区战士歌舞团一直是当家花旦。有种说法,说当年战士歌舞团的声乐水平不比同时期总政歌舞团的水平差。当年军队系统美声唱法的演员当中,邓韵不光在广州军区算女一号,估计在全军也是数一数二的吧。所以当年邓韵被郭淑珍坚持要求着改声部那压力可是够大的,或许邓韵自己年轻想法不太多,郭淑珍面对的可是非常复杂的
“七嘴八舌”。当时,郭淑珍的老师,我国著名声乐教育家沈湘大师还顶着特务的帽子灰头土脸,但是这件事情上,他托人给郭淑珍带话,鼓励郭坚持对于邓韵的声部调整,也算是“大家”所见略同吧。

邓韵后来前往美国进修和发展演艺事业似乎并不太顺利。虽然她是第一个在
MET签约的中国歌手,但是“一般只是`蝴蝶夫人'中唱SUZUKIB角之类,一个SEASON没她几场演出(但这也已经算不错了)”(援引Cina“爱乐人 走四方”论坛的发言)。邓韵在MET虽然没挂上头牌,“不過她並不少在香港有演出, 每次都十分搶鏡, 多年的演出和學習, 她的低音區已較磁實, 高中音區仍保持一貫的漂亮. 前不久, 她在此地一場 Puccini 's " Madama Butterfly " , Suzuki 把那位外籍的"主角"也比下去(援引Patzak“爱乐人 走四方”论坛的发言)。“国交”96/97音乐季压轴演出时候,时任音乐总监陈佐湟曾经邀请邓韵回国与女高音傅海燕一起演绎马勒“第二”。据说也是不同凡响。

邓韵
2001年回国发展,主要从事西方歌剧的推广工作,登台演唱已经不再成为她的主项。毕竟年龄不饶人。 这个可能就是《蝴蝶夫人》中的铃木了,这时候已经是次女高了。

邓韵,著名女中音歌唱家、歌剧艺术表演家,全球闻名的茱莉亚音乐学院美国歌剧中心的第一位中国学生,首位被纽约大都会歌剧院签约的中国歌唱家,在世界各地多个大歌剧院演过几十部经典歌剧。2003 年从美国归来,发起创办了“广州歌剧学会”,至今一直从事歌剧艺术的推广。20109月,创建了华南地区第一个歌剧艺术专业团体— 广州鳟鱼歌剧艺术团(吴哲铭任团长)。

Joanne Grillo,她是大都会歌剧院的一个女中音,她主角挺重要的,她一进来就对着我唧哩咕噜,她是意大利人,带点那种口音,我根本不知道她说什么,你知道吧,我老师说say yes ,我说yes,唧哩咕噜,又讲一通,yes,我老师说完了我给你解释,我当然很相信我老师,这是我声乐老师Daniel Ferro,我跟她很多年了,这个情景,周广仁先生都在场,后来是什么事情呢?她说哎呀,美丽的东方女孩,这句我听懂了,其他的我没听懂,她说想邀请我,夏天跟大都会歌剧院的,他们一个夏天的巡演的团队,到香港演《蝴蝶夫人》,你去演那个铃木可不可以,她就是问这件事,那我老师当然要我说yes了。

鳟鱼歌剧艺术团

201218日,邓韵将携成军一年的鳟鱼歌剧团在友谊剧院上演专场音乐会,音乐会由邓韵的老伴、著名舞美设计师宋玉龙亲自打造舞台,一批由邓韵培养的年轻舞台新秀将集体亮相。

每当产卵时节,生活在大江大海中的鳟鱼逆流而上,拼尽全力返回自己的出生地产卵。如同一条鳟鱼,著名歌唱家邓韵在扬名海外后不忘故土,已在广州为歌剧默默耕耘了若干年。去年,邓韵在广州歌剧学会的基础上终于组建了鳟鱼歌剧艺术团,她笑言,这是七年的老火熬出了靓汤。

不易:靠老伴慷慨解囊

鳟鱼歌剧团的办公和排练场所隐蔽在珠江新城猎德村的一栋公寓里,但对于一个民间艺术团来说,能够租用这样一处将近
200平米的团址已属十分不易。邓韵说:“我们是第一个冲出来的,而且是有基础的,不是一夜炒作出来的一个团。”在国内,北京有中央歌剧院,上海有上海歌剧院,而广州什么也没有,鳟鱼歌剧团打破了这个零的局面,但这个历程也走了七年。

作为美国大都会歌剧院首位签约的华人歌唱家,邓韵本想在退休后安静地在美国享受加州的阳光,却被恩师郭淑珍的一句话点醒:
“退休?你条件这么好,不想唱,还可以教学生。”邓韵坦承,对于要不要回来做事,她自己也经历了一番思想斗争。后来,她到上海举办大师班,年轻人求学的热忱让她联想到当年的自己,“当时我就下定了决心,但不是在别的地方,要做就在自己的家乡广东。”2003年,邓韵在广州正式成立了首个歌剧学会,并到星海音乐学院讲课。那时她的老伴还在美国广播公司供职,两人便由此开始了长期分居两地的生活。

在国内一缺资金,二缺人才,成立之后广州歌剧学会的发展一直举步维艰。政府拨款的每年
5万元办公费用只是杯水车薪,学会的办公场地仅是一间12平方米的小房子,会员们排练都要租场地,经常“打游击”。到星海音乐厅演出,租小厅要1.2万,大厅要6万,而演出的门票最高才卖60元。每到经费拮据的时候,邓韵的老伴总是慷慨解囊,为演出赞助启动经费,这点让她特别感动。

严谨:七年老火熬靓汤

20104月,广州大剧院落成,邓韵带领歌剧学会成员在剧院举行了首场试演《为了公主图兰朵》,一位身在海外的热心人看完邓韵的访谈后联系到她,愿意无偿提供赞助经费。至此,邓韵终于得以在学会基础上成立一支专业的团队——鳟鱼歌剧艺术团。“我们终于有了自己专业的一个团队”,邓韵对此十分感恩,“这跟熬汤是一个道理,没有前面七年的磨练,太轻易的得到也不是好事。”

“
这些年,我们都是摸着石头过河一步步走下来的。我自己也是一把年纪了,但毕竟在剧团这方面没有经验,所以我觉得也挺好,活到老学到老。”歌剧要培养人才不容易,培养观众更不容易。鳟鱼艺术团成立一年来,也已举办了5场公益演出。今年在中山图书馆举行的“歌剧之窗”以三场演出专门介绍中国歌剧,“到最后一场,观众那个兴奋、那个掌声,真的令我非常感动。”

鳟鱼歌剧团目前是华南地区第一个专业的歌剧表演团,虽然来自民间,但拥有20多名全职的专业演员和幕后制作人员,其中有三分之一都来自“海归”“歌剧演出需要的是深厚的积累和基本功,我不希望因为演员的演出达不到效果,而造成观众对歌剧的误解。”为此,无论是此前的歌剧学会到如今的剧团,都还未上演过一部完整的歌剧。邓韵将旗下的这些演员“”了好几年,除了亲自指导排练,还请来专业的老师为他们排出语言、舞蹈、表演等课程。而现在,团长吴哲铭、成员吴国玲、郑楠、邱莹等都已成为拥有一帮“粉丝”的歌剧人才。邓韵透露,剧团明年就能为观众上演一部完整的歌剧,而她的远期目标则是想打造属于广州的原创歌剧,这个计划也已经在落实创作。

登台:时隔
30年再度联手郑秋枫

明年
18日,邓韵将携成军一年的鳟鱼歌剧团一起亮相友谊剧院,上演专场音乐会。音乐会特邀著名花腔女高音歌唱家吴碧霞、“八只眼”成员许乐加盟,邓韵自己也将首演著名作曲家郑秋枫在西藏采风时为她创作的歌曲《雪域行》。年轻时她与郑秋枫在新疆一起采风,曾经诞生了《帕米尔高原,我的家乡多么美》、《美丽的孔雀河》等多首脍炙人口的歌曲。“30年前我首唱这些歌曲时也是在友谊剧院,这次也是在友谊,也是首演老郑为我创作的歌曲,一晃30年,老郑听了这首歌说,出去这么多年回来以后,我终于又找回了感觉。”

此外,鳟鱼歌剧团的8人男生组合将分四个声部献唱歌剧名曲《今夜无人入睡》,这种以和声演绎歌剧的形式将令观众耳目一新。音乐会的舞美由邓韵的老伴宋玉龙设计,现场8“飞碟”6“空中一号”将呈现出立体化的震撼效果。

社会评价

她的出色表演受到了《纽约时报》、《歌剧新闻》及各地乐评的高度评价和赞扬。
1994年曾在美国纽约获“杰出妇女明星奖”。为推广歌剧,把近二十年来在美国纽约大都会歌剧院,以及在国际舞台上对歌剧艺术的领悟、演唱的经验奉献给家乡的人民,邓韵回到了广州。2001年应邀授教于上海国际歌剧大师班。为了培养青年歌剧演员和推广歌剧事业,2003年发起创办了“广州歌剧学会”,组织演出、培训和歌剧讲座等活动,获得了各界的热烈支持和高度评价。

胸中气象大天边 李定国 
  
  新中国培养的第一代歌唱家郭淑珍,是沈湘大师的高足,也是我国歌坛洋为中用的典范。 

  自上世纪五十年代末,从前苏联学成归国后,深得俄罗斯流派精髓的郭淑珍,在其长达一个甲子的艺术生涯中,演唱过无数欧美的经典歌曲,但她更注重的是中国作品的演绎。郭淑珍首唱的《我站在铁索桥上》和《玛依拉》等一些歌曲,都堪称教科书式的范本。最值得骄傲的是,她演唱的《黄河怨》,至今还无人超越。 

  1965年,为纪念抗战胜利二十周年,中央乐团排演《黄河大合唱》并在中央直属文艺团体和驻京的部队文工团里选拔独唱、领唱演员。 

  选拔刚过了二轮,担当其中《黄河怨》独唱的候选人,就只剩下中央音乐学院青年教师郭淑珍一人了。其实,早在留苏期间,郭淑珍就应邀担任过苏俄版的《黄河大合唱》中《黄河怨》的独唱,反响不俗。打那后,这首歌曲也成了郭淑珍的保留曲目。随着不断地打磨,她对作品的理解、研究更深刻,对人物情感的把握也更准确了。此次,郭淑珍以她炉火纯青、感人肺腑的诠释,更把一个黄河岸边,饱受欺凌的中国妇女的内心世界,展现得淋漓尽致。连担任音乐会指挥的李德伦和著名音乐评论家李凌,都被感动得热泪盈盈、连连称道。 

  年已耄耋的郭淑珍,精力充沛,至今还活跃在教学一线。大量舞台实践和教学经验的积累,使她能科学地解决西洋发声与中文咬字吐词及行腔之间的矛盾。在传承前辈艺术家的基础上,不断探索、创新,从而开辟了一条有中国特色的歌唱之路。 

  作为声乐教育家,郭淑珍桃李满园,
邓韵、幺红、张立萍、王静、郑莉、王秀芬、吴碧霞等许多著名歌唱家,都出自她的门下。 

  
1975年初春,我堂姐偕所在的广州军区文工团来沪招考演员。那天,在我堂姐家的考试现场,我有幸聆听到了当时如日中天的花腔女高音歌唱家邓韵演唱的《颂歌献给毛主席》《红色女话务员》等代表作。那高亢激越的歌声,震撼人心,久久不能忘怀。 

  临别时,堂姐悄悄对我说,明天要陪
邓韵去文艺医院,还要找声乐研究所的林俊卿大夫检查嗓子。结果,邓韵的声带被查出充血、息肉等许多问题,需要休养并禁声。但她作为文工团的主要演员,一时半刻根本无法停歇下来。 

  后来,据我堂姐说,这些年来,
邓韵每次参加音乐会后,总会感觉嗓子不适,要休息几天才能恢复。这样的现象持续许久。邓韵四处求医,还拜访各路声乐名家,以期找出症结,但都未果。最终,连本团词曲作家瞿琮、郑秋枫专门为其量身定做的一首新作——珠影新片《海外赤子》中的主题歌《我爱你中国》,她也无力唱好它了,只能割爱。 

  
正当邓韵百般无奈之际,有战友建议她到北京的郭淑珍教授处试试。经过一段时间的仔细考察和试验,有着真知灼见、又长着一副火眼金睛的郭淑珍终于发现了真正原因。原来,邓韵演唱的声部,出现了严重错位。一个偏高的、有着宽泛音域的戏剧女中音,本应以胸腔共鸣为主。但邓韵自出道以来,一直被误作为花腔女高音,拼命往头声发展。这对其声带及歌唱的危害,是可想而知的。 

  起初,很多圈内人士,包括
邓韵本人,对郭淑珍的这一论断,都是持怀疑态度的。但郭淑珍对邓韵说:你能很轻松地唱到高音C,并不一定就是女高音。判断人的声部,还要看其他各方面的因素和条件。例如,著名的男中音歌唱家寇家伦,他有二个八度多的音域,也能唱到高音C。因此,绰号“气死男高音”。但他并不是男高音……

  找到问题所在,一切迎刃而解。极有悟性的邓韵,在郭先生的悉心点拨和调教下,很快又以一个崭新的角色,傲立在舞台上。她后来还成了第一个签约美国大都会歌剧院的中国大陆演员。

  
邓韵的重新崛起,足见郭淑珍的艺术功力。

作為聲樂教育家,郭淑珍桃李滿園,鄧韻、么紅、張立萍、王靜、鄭莉、王秀芬、吳碧霞等許多著名歌唱家,都出自她的門下。

1975年初春,我堂姐偕所在的廣州軍區文工團來滬招考演員。那天,在我堂姐家的考試現場,我有幸聆聽到了當時如日中天的花腔女高音歌唱家鄧韻演唱的《頌歌獻給毛主席》《紅色女話務員》等代表作。那高亢激越的歌聲,震撼人心,久久不能忘懷。

臨別時,堂姐悄悄對我說,明天要陪鄧韻去文藝醫院,還要找聲樂研究所的林俊卿大夫檢查嗓子。結果,鄧韻的聲帶被查出充血、息肉等許多問題,需要休養並禁聲。但她作為文工團的主要演員,一時半刻根本無法停歇下來。

後來,據我堂姐說,這些年來,鄧韻每次參加音樂會後,總會感覺嗓子不適,要休息幾天才能恢復。這樣的現象持續許久。鄧韻四處求醫,還拜訪各路聲樂名家,以期找出癥結,但都未果。最終,連本團詞曲作家瞿琮、鄭秋楓專門為其量身定做的一首新作
——珠影新片《海外赤子》中的主題歌《我愛你中國》,她也無力唱好它了,只能割愛。

正當鄧韻百般無奈之際,有戰友建議她到北京的郭淑珍教授處試試。經過一段時間的仔細考察和試驗,有著真知灼見、又長著一副火眼金睛的郭淑珍終於發現了真正原因。原來,鄧韻演唱的聲部,出現了嚴重錯位。一個偏高的、有著寬泛音域的戲劇女中音,本應以胸腔共鳴為主。但鄧韻自出道以來,一直被誤作為花腔女高音,拼命往頭聲發展。這對其聲帶及歌唱的危害,是可想而知的。

  找到問題所在,一切迎刃而解。極有悟性的鄧韻,在郭先生的悉心點撥和調教下,很快又以一個嶄新的角色,傲立在舞台上。她後來還成了第一個簽約美國大都會歌劇院的中國大陸演員。

鄧韻的重新崛起,足見郭淑珍的藝術功力。

  Culture of New China's first generation of singers Guo Shuzhen, a pupil of Master Shen Xiang, also a country singer foreign things serve China model. 

  Guo Shuzhen, since the end of the fifties of the last century, after the former Soviet Union, studies abroad, won the Russian schools of the essence of its long artistic career of one cycle, sung numerous European and American classic songs, but her pay more attention to China the interpretation of the works. Guo Shuzhen Chuan "I stood on the iron chain bridge" and "Mayila some songs are called textbook template. Most proud of, she sang "Yellow Resentment still unsurpassed. 

  In 1965, to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the victory of the war, the Central Philharmonic rehearsal "Yellow River Cantata" and the selection of troops directly under the central government troupes and Beijing art troupe soloist, cantor actor. 

  Have just had two singles play Yellow Resentment solo candidates, only one of the Central Conservatory of young teachers Guo Shuzhen. In fact, as early as during the stay in the Soviet Union, Guo Shuzhen was invited as a Soviet version of the "Yellow River Cantata" in "The Yellow River Resentment solo impressive response. After playing that song became Guo Shuzhen repertoire. With constantly grinding her works, study more profound grasp of the characters emotions more accurately. This, Guo Shuzhen with her blue fire, touching interpretation, more a shore of the Yellow River, the inner world of women suffering from bullying, demonstrated most vividly. Even as a concert conductor Li Delun and famous music critic Li Ling, have been moved to tears Yingying Lianlian Chen Tao. 

  Years have been the oldest old Guo Shuzhen, energetic, still active in teaching first-line. The accumulation of a large number of stage practice and teaching experience, she can scientifically to solve Western audible Chinese pronunciation was spit contradiction between word and line cavity. On the basis of inheritance senior artist constantly explore, innovation, thus opening up a singing of the road with Chinese characteristics. 

  Guo Shuzhen peaches and plums beauties, Deng Yun, Red unitary, Zhang Liping, Wang Jing, Zheng Li, Wang Xiufen, Wu Bixia many famous singers as a vocal educator, from her sects. 

  In the early spring of 1975, my cousin-kai, the Guangzhou Military Region Art Troupe of Shanghai to recruit actor. Day, in the examination site of the home of my cousin, I was fortunate to listen to the coloratura singer heyday at the time Deng Yun concert "carols dedicated to Chairman Mao" red female attendant "masterpiece. That high-pitched, loud and strong singing, stirring, for too long. 

  Parting, the cousin quietly said to me tomorrow to accompany Deng Yun to literary Hospital, to find a Vocal Institute Lin Junqing doctor checking throat. Deng Yun vocal cords was found to many problems such as congestion, polyps, and the need to rest and gag. But she, as the main actors of the art troupe, a little while impossible to stop down. 

  Later, my cousin said, all these years, Deng Yun participate in each concert, always feeling throat discomfort, to rest for a few days to recover. This phenomenon persists for a long time. Deng Yun around the doctor also visited the brightest vocal masters in order to find out the crux of the problem, but are unsuccessful. In the end, even this group songwriter Qu Cong, Zheng Qiufeng specifically for a new tailor-made for the - the Pearl River Film new film "Haiwaichizi," the theme song "I love you China, she is also unable to sing praises for it, can only afford to spare. 

  While Deng Yun resignation the comrades recommend her to Beijing at Professor Guo Shuzhen try. After a period of careful investigation and trial, has the insight and with a golden eye Guo Shuzhen finally found the real reason. Original, Deng Yun concert part, there has been a serious dislocation. A high, dramatic mezzo-soprano has a broad range, this should mainly chest resonance. Deng Yun since his debut, has been mistaken as a coloratura desperately to head voice. Harm their vocal cords and singing can be imagined. 

  At first, many insiders, including Deng Yun Guo Shuzhen this thesis, are skeptical. Guo Shuzhen Deng Yun said: you can easily sung treble C, does not necessarily soprano. To determine the part, but also the other factors and conditions. For example, famous baritone Koujia Lun, he has more than two-octave vocal range, also sings treble C. Therefore, the nickname "mad tenor." But he is not the tenor ...

  Find the problem, all solved. Savvy Deng Yun, in Mr. Guo careful coaching and tune, soon Youyi a new role, standing proudly on the stage. She later became the first signing Metropolitan Opera Chinese mainland actress.

  The re-emergence of Deng Yun, signifying Guo Shuzhen artistic skill.
