クリスマス・コンサート 「クリスマスの思い出」。

By marfua 2009年12月20日 00:52

クリスマス・コンサートに行かれた方から、レポートと、プログラムに載っていた「クリスマスの思い出」の文をいただきました〜〜〜。
本当にお忙しいでしょうに、ファンのために苦労してくださってありがたいです!!!

いろいろな所で報じられている通り、セブは「ごめんね、今晩はドナルドダックみたいな声で...」と弁解し、舞台のそででは何度もせき込んでいて本当に気の毒でしたョ。でも私の行った会場では歌いだせばOK、歌声はそうひどくありませんでした。
というか、アンコールのAdeste Fidelesではお約束通りソロを出損ない、空白の瞬間が... これまたお約束通り、Davidは大笑い、二人に挟まれているのにUrsは微動だにせずフレーズをつなげ、といった感じでした。
Sebは「僕が悪いの。追いつけなくてさ」と言わんばかりにクロールのように腕をまわして観客の笑いを誘っていました。
このやりとりを見ていて、ほっとしてしまいました。なんでかしら...

さて、コンサートプログムに4人の「クリスマスの思い出」が載っていて楽しかったので、超長文ですが、おすそわけを。どこかで読んだことがあるような内容の気もしますけど...
やっぱりあちらの方にとってのクリスマスは、日本人にとってのお正月と同じように自分の家族とすごす大切な時なんですね。私もUrsのone of the loved onesになりたい〜。

Sebastien:思い入れがたっぷりのセブのコメントですね。

YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY OF CHRISTMAS?

My favourite memory of Christmas was with my great grand mother Meme Denise, where all the family was united at once. We would be all together and all of my cousins from my mother's side(15) would be here admiring the Christmas tree and watching a little of the TV programs which were always magical.
Then we would look at the windows admiring the snow and feeling the cold. I love this about Christmas when it's really cold. We would all have dinner with our cousins, aunts, uncles, grand mother and so on. There were so many of us at the table it always looked amazing with all of these beautiful Christmas decorations which very much sets the mood. We would have oysters, foie gras, a stuffed turkey, and la buche de noel which is a typical desert in France. Then sometimes we would go to the church and sing some Christmas carols, I remember singing so loud that people were looking at me as if I was at a rock concert, it was often out of context I must admit, but so much fun!
As for now Christmas will be so beautiful as I will be the one who will have to disguise myself as father Christmas for my beautiful children. I will try to continue on bringing to them that warm feeling of a beautiful Christmas with family and carols.

WHAT DOES CHRISTMAS /THE HOLIDAY SEASON MEAN TO YOU?

Christmas holidays means to me a special bread with your friends and family because everyone has time off at the same time which makes it easier for a reunion. It's also a time that you are always looking forward to because you have to prepare for Christmas, looking to buy the people you love a nice present (and wanting to please them with a great surprise), going to the market and buying all the food to make a wonderful dinner, preparing all the Christmas decorations in the house and making a day where all the family and kids come to dress up the Xmas tree. It's a beautiful tradition for me that should always exist and that I want to continue for my children. I hope it will be cold and have snow outside even though it's cliched it's so so beautiful. I love walking in the street and even more now with my wife and my children we can admire all the amazing stores with their decorations and the lights in the street are always so spectacular. The most important thing for me is to go to church on Christmas day and sing some Christmas carols and make sure my children believe in Christmas too. It is the most important reunion in the year and a special moment where you can see all your loved ones at once.

David:デヴィッドは意外にあっさりしたお答え。

WHAT DOES CHRISTMAS/THE HOLIDAY SEASON MEAN TO YOU?

Christmas to me means a celebration of connection to the divine and to the family. (Which on the deepest root level are the same thing.)

YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY OF CHRISTMAS?

My favorite Christmas memory was of driven 3 days across the US to surprise my grandparents when I was 8. We sang Christmas carols the whole way.

Urs:いろいろある思いでの中で、まだお父さんがいたころのが一番のようですね。

YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY OF CHRISTMAS?

My favorite memory of Christmas (and I have a lot, because I love Christmas time, so it's quite hard to choose one... anyway) is when I was a little boy, I do not remember exactly what age, but we had a lot of snow that winter in our little village in Switzerland. And it was cold. So cold that the snow, even in the roads hadn't melted, but was all white and compact, so that the whole village, surrounded by the wooded hills, truly looked like a winter wonderland. Before dinner, we took our old fashioned wooden sleighs and went for a walk, the whole family including grandma. It was getting dark and the stars came out on a crisp clear winter sky. The atmosphere was just magical, and we kids were very excited, looking toward to finally seeing the beautifully lit up Christmas tree my parents would have prepared over the last few days, and especially the presents lying underneath it...

WHAT DOES CHRISTMAS/THE HOLIDAY SEASON MEAN TO YOU?

I always feel very warm and tranquil in my heart around Christmas time.
It's the time of the year where I spend a lot of time thinking about my family and loved ones. I love getting presents for them and I am very excited, when I find something that I think they will really like.
Christmas time is a time of peace for me, a time when I feel closer to the people around me, and I wish everyone in the world would be just as happy as I am...

Carlos:あのカルロスにも子供時代のかわいい思い出が...

WHAT DOES CHRISTMAS/THE HOLIDAY SEASON MEAN TO YOU?

I look forward to Christmas every year as a special time I can relax and spend with my family. It's often the only time get a long bread at home to catch up with friends and see all my relatives. I always have Christmas in Madrid with lots of good food and lots of presents.

YOUR FAVOURITE MEMORY OF CHRISTMAS?

Sitting in bed waiting for Santa with anticipation. I was 7 years of old and still believed that Santa Claus was a real live person. Of course, you had to always believe or he wouldn't come to visit you!! And you had to be good all year round because he was watching... I could never guarantee that part, so would put out extra cookies to help my cause!

お疲れ様、以上で〜す。
今晩でクリスマスコンサートも終わりですね。
今度こそゆっくり休養して(本気)、でも年明けからは頑張って(さっさと)録音して(はやく)CD出して、プロモーションで(お約束通り「すぐに」)来日してほしいものです。(ファンは常に非常に身勝手)

あはは、そうです、身勝手なんです〜。
子どものころの思い出、みんな可愛らしいー!!!
そういえば、うちの夫はどんな思い出が?サンタクロースを何歳まで信じてたのかしら?

クリスマス(日本ではお正月?)、皆様も大切な方と過ごせるといいですね。
そして、世界に愛と平和を・・・。

クッキー用意してサンタクロースを待つちっちゃいカルロス・・・
かわいい〜

ワタシなんか冷めた子供でしたからねぇ。
プレゼント隠してあるんじゃないかって押し入れ漁った事もありましたよ(笑

わが家の年賀状もすべて私の手にかかっているんですが、気ばかり焦って一向に進みません!
うぎゃ〜!

そうそう、押し入れ!子どもが小さいうちはおもちゃも大きかったので、隠すのに大変でした!
大きくなるにつれて、ゲームソフトとか小さいものに。
今じゃ「お金でいいよ」とか言ってます。サンタさんに向かって。(笑)
