張彩湘 ZHANG Cai-Xiang 鋼琴家、音樂教育家 返回

張彩湘(1915-1991),鋼琴家、音樂教育家。出生於苗栗頭份,父親張福興有「近代臺灣第一位西洋音樂家」之稱譽。1932年隨父親張福興赴日,之後進入武藏野音樂專門學校鋼琴部就讀,隨德籍鋼琴家克羅彩(Leonid Kreutzer)專研鋼琴踏板法。1944年返國後,先後任教於臺中師範學校音樂科、新竹師範預科及國立臺灣師範大學。1946年創辦「臺北鋼琴專攻塾」,招收學生傳授琴藝,堅持德國樂派的嚴謹風格,且前後共舉辦十屆學生成果發表會,此難得的堅持,贏得樂界的深盼及肯定,因此被認為開創了臺灣戰後鋼琴教育的新道路,為當時教席中的第一把交椅。「執著於一」的信念,忠於原典的態度,張彩湘影響深遠。1981年,自任教超過30年的師大音樂學系專任退休,許多臺灣著名的鋼琴教授都出自其門下,作育英才無數。
