Izjemna Dubravka Tomšič

Dubravka Tomšič, velika umetnica, ki pri svojih 72 letih nadaljuje z ustvarjanjem mojstrovine. Poklon. Tehnično tako dovršene pianistke še nisem videla, ampak tisto, kar jo naredi Veliko, prihaja kakor slap, ki se izliva skozi njo in preko klavirja tvori božansko melodijo, ki se te dotakne in te boža. Njen koncert je resnično nahranil mojo Dušo.

Ta izjemna pianistka se je rodila leta 1940 v Dubrovniku in je kot čudežni otrok prvič nastopila s petimi leti. Z dvanajstimi leti odšla v ZDA, kjer je leta 1955 bila izbrana za največji glasbeni talent v ZDA. Leta 1957 je diplomirala na Juiliard School of Music, nato pa se je izpopolnjevala pri legendarnemu Arthur Rubinsteinu, najboljšemu pianistu 20.stol. Od leta 1975 je redna profesorica za klavir na ljubljanski Akademiji za glasbo, ima pa tudi bogato koncertno kariero doma in v tujini, saj je nastopila več kot 4.000 krat. Dubravka Tomšič Srebotnjak je zaradi izjemnega glasbenega ustvarjanja prejela vrsto najvišjih nagrad.

  1. The selection of the songs, however small, clearly shows the tendencies in the development of this musical form in almost 100 years. Most evident are both the increasing musical descriptiveness and the ever more important role of the piano. These tendencies demanded a change from strophic to varied strophic and ultimately to through-composed form. The latter rendered a closer relation between text and music as well as greater musical expression. The most convenient means of expression for the composers, when setting the sense of Goethe’s ballad to music, was to juxtapose and alternate the contrasting sections of the poem which describe its different characters. The specifics of the ballad as a poetic form with lyric, epic and dramatic elements – in comparison with lyric poems – demand a wider diapason of music material. The widening of tonal and harmonic space is the most noticeable in the only through-composed setting by Franz Schubert. Other composers were due to the repetition of the musical material limited, though a certain development is still perceivable, most notably in the greater use of chromatics. The use of motifs on a larger scale first appears with Schubert, mainly in the piano part. We can also notice a more important role of the accompaniment: independent instrumental passages and greater technical demands. It is mainly because of the epic and dramatic elements that the melodic component is less tuneful than in the settings of contemporary lyric poems. It is therefore the recitative and figurative scheme that prevails; however, the strophic song by Corona Schröter is entirely melodious and in the compositions by some other composers it is usually the Erlkönig that has the most melodious sections.

  2. Thank you very much for this constructive opinion.
    For me is very simple, either I feel music and musician or not. And although I don’t personally know her, she must be great human being, and that I have seen, feel through her music…waterfall of inspiration, coming through her and touches everybody who was there.
    And again thank your for describing technical part so good.
