周藍萍 CHOU Lan-Ping 通俗歌曲作曲家 返回

1950、60年代是臺灣自戰後荒蕪裡復甦更生的年代,作曲家周藍萍(1926-1971)生逢此時,是國語流行歌曲及電影音樂的一顆灼灼明星。他創作了〈綠島小夜曲〉、〈願嫁漢家郎〉、〈美麗的寶島〉等傳唱不歇的國語流行歌曲,1963年以黃梅調電影《梁山伯與祝英台》大放異采,成為華人影圈首屈一指的電影音樂大師。他畢生創作了數百首歌曲,完成了一百部以上的電影音樂,三度獲得金馬獎最佳音樂,和一座亞洲影展最佳音樂,為臺灣作曲家在國際影壇上爭光不少。周藍萍的一生猶如浮浪飄萍,他出生成長於大陸,嶄露頭角於臺灣,最終在香港引領風騷。他被公認是臺灣國語流行歌曲的開創者,也是第一位在國語流行歌曲裡敘寫臺灣的作曲家。他的歌曲不但表現了懷懷鄉思土的「中國情結」,也融入大量臺灣元素,呈現了他鄉漸成故鄉的「臺灣想像」。

CHOU Lan-Ping, born in 1926, was a post-war composer and a super star in the field of Mandarin popular music and film music. His representative works include the widely-known songs, such as “Green Island Serenade,” “I'd Like to Marry a Han Man,” and “Beautiful Formosa ,” and the music for the “Huangmei Opera” film- “Butterfly Lovers” (1963), which made him become one of the best film composers in the Chinese film circle. He composed hundreds of songs and more than 100 film music pieces. He also received the award of “Best Original Film Song” from the Golden Horse Awards three times and the award of “Best Music” from Asia Pacific Film Festival. CHOU had an fairly unstable life: being born in mainland China, becoming a budding composer in Taiwan, and reaching his professional climax in Hong Kong. He is considered as the pioneer of Mandarin popular music and the first song writer who includs the subject of Taiwan in Mandarin popular music. His musical works express nostalgia of Chinese culture, combine Taiwanse elements, and present his imagination of Taiwan as hometown. CHOU died in 1971.
