르네상스- 세헤라자드와 다른 이야기들 (1975년) 음악

일년에 두 세번은 꼭 미친듯이 듣고 싶어지는 명반. 그리고 그때마다 110%의 감동.

어떤 시대든 유행이 있고, 장르가 생겨난다. 그런데 보통 이런 장르들은 '반복되기 쉽다'. 하지만, 70년대의 한정된 시기에만 나올 수 있었던 이런 아트락 밴드들은 이제는 거의 인류문화유산으로 취급해야하는게 아닐까...

분명 르네상스시대음악은 아닐텐데 이들의 음악을 듣고 있자면 그 당시로 돌아가는 느낌이 든다.

또한 이 75년의 걸작에서는 르네상스라는 그룹명에 역사적으로 그 혁명을 만들어낸 아랍/페르시아의 문화를 담아낸 커버와 가사...정말 절묘하다.

Renaissance - The Sultan

Sultan king cruel majesty
Ordered that his women die
A single night this for all his wives
Takes his pleasure then their lives
And so for many days with the dawn

The sultan had his way
Wives were put to death
His name on their dying breath
Then one day as the evening came
Sultan sends for him a wife

Choose her well charms I wish to see
Bring her, send her in to me
Then came scheherazade to his side
And her beauty shone

Like a flower grown
Gentle as he'd ever known
Scheherazade bewitched him
With songs of jeweled keys

Princes and of heroes
And eastern fantasies
Told him tales of sultans
And talismans and rings
A thousand and one nights she sang

To entertain her king
She sings, scheherazade, scheherazade, etc
"the young prince and the young princess as told by scheherazade" 
And you would cause the sun to see your light
And then be shamed

You cover darkness with a thousand secret flames
With your love, oh my love, oh my love, my love
And I would cause the winds to blow a hundred different days
And bring the perfumes of the gardens of the ways
Of your love, oh my love, oh my love, my love

Crystal and the clay, nights and the days
All on the prince's seal
Eagle of the sky, lion of the earth
This is what the seal is worth, what the seal is worth
Holds all of the dreams of a man

Tapestries, wishes of man, pictures and visions of man
The spirit of the soul of the man
And he would vow to love her for the rest of all his days
"the festival"

Sheherazade this day is yours
The bearers of your gifts now all around you stand
The finest silk made in the land
Is waiting for your choice
It shimmers at your hand

Sheherazade your life is one
You have today the sultan's love
The people watch you step into the sun

Stalls and bars of every kind
Food piled high on woven leaves for all to eat
Drums and flutes at every turn

The music winding, twisting through the crowded streets
Caravans from far away bring people laughing
People come to see the sultan in baghdad today
Scheherazade her name is known
Her tale is told

The sultan let her life be spared
The festival begins this day
To celebrate her fame
The people sing her praise
Stories sung, the crowds are dancing

To the music and the entertainment all the voices sing
The people call to see the king
The sultan smiles
His story just begun

The sultan and sheherazade are one
Scheherazade, scheherazade

She told him tales of sultans and talismans and rings

A thousand and one nights she sang to entertain her king

She sings, scheherazade, sheherazade, scheherazade, etc.

    락도 좋지만 전 세헤라자드는 역시 림스키 코르샤코프의 곡이 확 오더군요 여러 음반 다 좋지만 토마스 비첨이 훌륭하죠...
