徐松榮 HSU Sung-Jung 作曲家 返回

徐松榮(1941-2012),客籍作曲家。出生於苗栗頭份。自小家中不錯,受到父親影響而喜愛音樂,1957年就讀臺灣省立臺北師範學校(今國立臺北教育大學)音樂科,在此遇到他學習作曲的貴人康謳,啟發其創作。1965年,許常惠將徐松榮等5人組成了五人樂集,鼓勵發表作品。1967-1968年間,亦參加民歌採集運動,深受啟發。1960年代起至2001年退休,一生從事穩定教職工作,亦默默耕耘作曲,相當難能可貴;又自覺深負使命,蒐集許多客家民謠,並從中篩選適合的題材進行創作,寫下深具風味的客家音樂。1987年起徐松榮卸下繁重的樂隊指導工作,開始了他創作的黃金期,曲風多元極富內涵,《客家風的國樂合奏曲》、《火車係麼个》(兒童合唱曲)、《伐木山歌》(直笛獨奏與重奏)等,皆為其留下動人的樂章。
