四指钢琴家李僖芽(双语)

  Four-Fingered Pianist, Lee Hee-Ah

  四指钢琴家李僖芽

  Lee Hee-Ah, well known as a four-fingered pianist, was born with two fingers on each hand and short legs under the knees due to a congenital disorder. Then later at three she had to undergo amputation to remove the legs below the knees. The feet she uses to walk are very soft and easily hurt. Therefore she can't walk very long. However, she inspires courage and hope in many people through her music despite her mental and physical disabilities.

  李僖芽(Lee Hee-Ah)是著名的四指钢琴家,她出生时由于先天性异常,双手各只有两根手指,双脚自膝盖以下也很短小,三岁时又进行截肢,将膝盖以下的部位切除。所以她赖以行走的腿非常虚弱,容易疼痛,因此无法步行很久。尽管有身心方面的障碍,她却用音乐带给许多人勇气与希望。

  Hee-Ah has played the piano since six. She explains the reason she started the piano as follows. “My fingers had no strength. So, my mother had me learn piano as therapy so that I could hold a pencil at school, and it led me to where I am now.”

  僖芽从六岁开始学琴,她说明当初弹琴的原因是:「我的手指没有力气,所以母亲要我学钢琴治疗,这样我在学校就可以握笔写字,结果造就了今天的我。」

  Her piano teacher discouraged her from the instrument saying she was not gifted. It took her several months to even press any keys because her fingers lacked strength. To make it worse, she was not able to tune into the beat and melody due to her brain dysfunction, and the doctor said if she memorized a piece five minutes long or more, her brain would become more dysfunctional.

  她的钢琴老师曾劝阻她不要学琴,说她没有天分。因为手指缺乏力气,光是按琴键这个动作就让她花了数个月的时间。更糟的是,由于她的脑部功能障碍,使她无法跟上节拍与旋律。医师说如果她背诵一首五分钟以上的曲子,可能会使她的脑部功能更加异常。

  However, with perseverance Hee-Ah can now memorize and play a piece that lasts longer than seven minutes. In learning her favorite piece, Chopin's impromptu Fantasia, she practiced so much that the score sheet was worn to tatters. It took no less than five years for her to play it.

  然而僖芽坚持不懈,如今已可背诵并弹奏超过七分钟的曲子。在学习她最喜爱的一首曲子「肖邦幻想即兴曲」时,由于练习得非常勤奋,甚至连琴谱都被她翻烂了。为了弹奏这首曲子,花了她不下五年的时间。

  “With ten fingers it would play rhythmically, but I had the most difficult time when melodies were not smoothly connected to each other because I have only two fingers.” “My favorite motto is 'Always try my best' and 'Make ceaseless efforts.'”

  「用十只手指弹奏会有节奏感,但我只有两根手指,很难将各个旋律衔接得很流畅。」「我最喜爱的座右铭是「时时全力以赴」与「努力不懈」。」

  When she first took part in a piano contest, the event organizer rejected her application in the beginning. Yet after her persistent request, she was able to participate in the competition and eventually won first prize. The jurors did not know she was physically disabled until the first prize winner was announced. Since then she started winning many awards in various competitions. Observing the results of her superhuman efforts, she would play the piano more than ten hours everyday resulting in blisters on her fingers.

  当她首度参加钢琴比赛时,活动主办人起初拒绝让她报名,不过经她一再地请求,终于如愿参加比赛,最后还获得首奖。直到宣布第一名得奖人时,裁判才知道她是肢体残障者。从那时起,她开始参加各种比赛,并赢得许多奖项。她付出超乎常人的努力,每天练习十个小时以上,手指因而长出水泡。
