    四房 領導對音樂的重視,遠不如對體育的重視︰這是我大有感慨的。體育學院學生的伙食就比音院的高50%。我一年來在政協會上,和北京來的人大代表談過幾次,未有結果。國務院中有一位副總理(賀)專管體育事業,可有哪一位副總理專管音樂?假如中央對音樂像對體育同樣看重,這一回你一定能去Salzburg[薩爾茨堡]了。既然我們請了奧國專家來參加我們北京舉行的莫扎特紀念音樂會,為什麼不能看機會向這專家提一聲Salzburg[薩爾茨堡]呢?只要三四句富于暗示性的話,他準會向本國政府去提。這些我當然不便多爭。中央不了解,我們在音樂上得一個國際大獎比在奧林匹克運動會上得幾個第三第四,影響要大得多。婷婷 一九六一年四月二十日* 親愛的孩子,自從彌拉和我們通信以後,好像你有了秘書,自己更少動筆了。知道你忙,精神緊張勞累,也不怪你。可是有些藝術問題非要你自己談不可。你不談,你我在精神上藝術上的溝通就要中斷,而在我這個孤獨的環境中更要感到孤獨。除了你,沒有人再和我交換音樂方面的意見。而我雖一天天的衰老,還是想多吹吹外面的風。你小時候我們指導你,到了今日,你也不能坐視爸爸在藝術的某一部中落後!插妹妹a片96 Following quickly on the heels of the spacey, artful U.F.O.F. -- by five months, to be exact -- Big Thief's fourth long-player, Two Hands, was recorded just days after its contrasting sister album. However, while U.F.O.F. was tracked at a wooded facility outside of Seattle, the band deliberately moved to the 100-plus-degree environs of a desert studio west of El Paso for Two Hands. The humid-versus-dry distinction makes for a convenient musical simile, as Two Hands commits to a crisper, more jagged sound on a rawer set of indie rock songs. Though less improvised-sounding on the whole than its predecessor, the loose Two Hands was recorded live with few overdubs by the same crew (producer Andrew Sarlo and engineer/mixer Dom Monks, though drummer James Krivchenia helped mix this time around). The album opens with "Rock and Sing," a short, lullaby-like introduction. Typically intimate lyrics from singer/songwriter Adrianne Lenker sound more stream of consciousness than composed on the track, with lines like "Hand me that cable/Plug into anything/I am unstable/Rock and sing, rock and sing." It's followed by catchier album highlight "Forgotten Eyes," which settles into the visceral, full-band folk-rock of Big Thief's earlier albums but with a distinctly immediate recording quality. (Though any such descriptions are relative in the case of this band.) Likewise living and breathing, the simmering "Not" has a slightly out-of-breath Lenker delivering near-constant lyrics alongside insistent drums, fuzzy guitar chords, and dissonant, impulsive guitar effects until the song breaks open into a sometimes-screeching jam just past the midway point. Other songs on Two Hands are memorable for different reasons, such as the quirkier guitar tones of the skittering "Two Hands," the folksy harmonies of "Replaced" (by guitarist/co-writer Buck Meek), and the stark tenderness of "Wolf" ("How you seem to follow through/On everything you yearn for"). While it's hard to talk about Two Hands in 2019 without the context of the stunning U.F.O.F., the album's quality stands on its own, offering its own grade of intimacy, sound, and feel for alternate moods.
