Moscow Nights-How to sing in Russian!


Intro by WanWan:
Zhenya’s Ribbon 2008 is sooo classic,the rouitne and the music! I fell in love with this rouitne and the music when I first time watched it @OG Beijing 2008. I just can’t get away from Zhenya’s beautiful ribbon and this music and watched it over and over again!

I always deeply hope I can learn to sign it in Russian, glad Alyona wrote down the Latin Transcription, BILLION THANKS TO HER!!! and also many thanks Joao’s beautiful  banner!

NIGHTS BETWEEN MOSCOW AND LENINGRAD

“Moscow Nights” is a well-known song, which was written by Vasily Solyev-Sedoy and Michael Matusovsky after the World War II. One of the authors was born in Leningrad, and at first he wanted to call the song “Leningrad Nights”.
The song became very popular in 1957 after the International Youth Festival which was held in Moscow. That time the song became an anthem of the festival and touched the hearts not only of Soviet people, but also the hearts of many foreigners. “Moscow Nights” is translated to many languages, but the real sense of it you can feel when listening to the original lyrics. So why not trying to sing it in Russian? Here we go with a short part. Have fun!

By the way, there is an interesting story how Zhenya decided to choose ”Moscow Nights” for her Ribbon 2008. Before the season 2008 Irina Viner – head coach of Russian National Team – went to China and visited one restaurant. At the door of the restaurant there was a bell singing the melody of Moscow Nights. And she says that every time when somebody entered the restaurant, all the visitors would start to smile and sing the song together with the melody. So this way she understood that Moscow Nights is a right song for the Olympic Program for China. On her return to Novogorsk she said: ”Zhenya, I know which music we shall choose for your ribbon!” And I must tell you she was 100% RIGHT!

Lyrics in Russian and English

Не слышны
в саду даже шорохи,
Все здесь замерло до утра,
Если б знали вы, как мне дороги
Подмосковные вечера.

Речка движется и не движется,
Вся из лунного серебра,
Песня слышится и не слышится}
В эти тихие вечера.

А рассвет уже все заметнее,
Так, пожалуйста, будь добра,
Не забудь и ты эти летние
Подмосковные вечера.

Не слышны в саду даже шорохи,
Все здесь замерло до утра,
Если б знали вы, как мне дороги
Подмосковные вечера.

Not even a whisper is to be heard in the garden,
Everything has calmed down until dawn.
If you only knew how dear they are to me,
The evenings near Moscow!

The river is moving and (sometimes) not, All made of the moons silver.
A song sounds and is not to be heard In those quiet evenings.

Why do you, darling, look at me from the side,
Bending your head so low?
It is not easy to tell
All the things that are in my heart.

And dawn is getting more and more visible.
So, please, be so kind: You, also, dont forget
These summer evenings near Moscow.

Below’s videos the singer all is the original singer-Vladimir Troshin

This one is not the full version-without 3rd part

Note by WanWan: so according the story that Alyona wrote how Zhenya decided to choose this song for her ribbon music 2008. Then Maybe Viner already had this decision she wanted to let Zhenya to Beijing before season 2008, because “Moscow Nights” is a very popular song in China, it’s significant for several generations, many Chinese grow up with this song! and Viner gave this music to Zhenya not to Sesina!
================================================


經典的Moscow Nights,我一直很想學唱,所以就請Alyona寫一篇簡短介紹並加上拼音教唱俄文。感謝她再度很快的交稿,這首歌原本要取名為”列寧格勒”,因為其中一位作者是出生在這裡。

去年奧運因為是在北京舉辦,而這首歌在中國大陸是傳唱很久耳熟能詳的歌曲。
對好幾個世代的中國人民都是意義重大影響深遠,很多人是跟著這首歌一起長大的。
所以Zhenya以這首歌當她的Ribbon音樂,在北京奧運是很有觀眾緣的。而我一位唸俄語系的朋友曾告訴我,這首歌就好比是中國的”茉莉花” 這樣有名的世界民謠。

根據Alyona寫的介紹,Zhenya會選這首歌當Ribbon 2008的音樂是因為在2008賽季之前,
Viner去中國訪問,當時她去了一家餐廳,那間餐廳的門鈴會發出”Moscow Nights”的旋律。
每次只要有人走進那間餐廳,每個人都會微笑然後跟著旋律哼唱。因此Viner當下了解到”Moscow Nights”是非常適合中國的北京奧運。所以回到Novogorsk之後,她就跟Zhenya說: 我知道你的彩帶要用什麼音樂了。

謝謝Alyona提供這個故事,對於大陸的民眾而言這首曲子很有名,但在台灣基本上很多人都不知道吧。看奧運轉播時,我也才第一次聽到,立刻就愛上了,不管是Zhenya的routine或音樂,都是這麼的優美。我不斷地重複看了一遍又遍,完全不想停止,大概跟看頒獎典禮的次數一樣多。

莫斯科郊外的夜晚 @Wiki-link

以下是中譯歌詞,並附上另一位歌手演唱的Video-Georg OTS

深夜花園裏四處靜悄悄
只有風兒在輕輕唱
夜色多麼好
心兒多爽朗
在這迷人的晚上
夜色多麼好
心兒多爽朗
在這迷人的晚上
小河靜靜流微微泛波浪
水面映著銀色月光
一陣清風一陣歌聲
多麼幽靜的晚上
一陣清風一陣歌聲
多麼幽靜的晚上

我的心上人坐在我身旁
默默看著我不作聲
我想對你講
但又難為情
多少話兒留在心上
我想對你講
但又難為情
多少話兒留在心上
長夜快過去天色濛濛亮
衷心祝福你好姑娘
但願從今後
你我永不忘
莫斯科郊外的晚上
但願從今後
你我永不忘
莫斯科郊外的晚上

  3. Michel says:

    Just found on Youtube: A Russian version of "Moscow Nights" from the very well-known German singer Ivan Rebroff (in real Hans Rolf Rippert, 1931-2008). He sang Russian folk songs for 40 years in German and Russian. Gorbachev even invited him for a concert in Moscow.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7dOFTcuvdP0&playnext_from=TL&videos=dT4u_6Aklho&playnext=1

  10. Laura says:

    Here the Spanish lyricsNi siquiera un susurro se escucha en el jardínTodo se encuentra calmado hasta el amanecer.Si tú supieras cómo son ellas de queridas para mí,¡Las noches cerca de Moscú!El río se mueve y algunas veces no,Todo hecho por eses preciosas lunas de plata.Una canción suena y no debe ser escuchadaEn estas tranquilas noches.¿Por qué, querida, me miras desde un lado,Inclinando tu cabeza hasta tan abajo?No son fáciles de decir Todas esas cosas que en mi corazón hay.El amanecer empieza a ser cada vez más y más visibleAsí que, por favor, sé amableY no olvidesEstas noches de verano cerca de Moscú.

  11. alyona says:

    For it is already Monday in Taiwan, I would like to make a special post off topic – Happy Birthday, dear Zoe! I wish you all the best, let all your dreams come true, even the most unreal ones))). Thanks for everything you do for us all and for Zhenya! I love you very much and I am proud to be your friend!

  12. Michel says:

    Now somebody must write here the Spanish version (and Portuguese?), then we might have all languages of the native speakers here. Slowly the page becomes really international 🙂

  13. Wan and catts says:

    Michel, thank you very much for the German lyrics 🙂

  14. Michel says:

    Since we now have the russian, english & chinese version of the song, I write here the german (here can even two read german). It should be said, that there are several versions, some rhyme more, some are more a literal translation. This version sounds and rhymes in my opinion the best. It based on the english translation.Kein Geräusch sogar in dem Blättermeer.Still ist\’s, bis der Tag ist erwacht.Freunde, wißt ihr denn, welchen Zauber wecktMoskaus trauliche Sommernacht?Strömt der Bach dahin, oder strömt er nicht,ganz aus Mondscheinsilber gemacht?Klingt ein Lied so zart, oder klingt es nichtin der traulichen Sommernacht?Warum birgst du, Lieb, deiner Augen Licht,das mich immer so hoch beglückt?Schwer zu sagen ist\’s – ich vermag es nicht -alles, was mir das Herz bedrückt.Schau, im Osten tagt\’s immer sichtlicher,und der Silberschein schwindet sacht.Doch vergiß sie nicht, diese friedlicheMoskaus mondhelle Sommernacht.(Dominik Hollmann) http://ingeb.org/songs/podmosko.html

  17. Wan and catts says:

    兔子謝謝~~我把你給我的中譯歌詞放上去了。

  18. RC says:

    嘿嘿,当年国内坛子里大家就猜过俄家那年主力的音乐是否有为了迎合OG的用意(包括爬爬的音乐,都是中国大陆耳熟能详的前苏联音乐),莫斯科郊外的晚上这歌,偶们80后都很熟悉,偶们80后的父辈几乎人人会唱

    Sure, Zoe! You are always welcome! The song is really wonderful and it would be great if more people could learn it and this way continue it\’s legacy))))

  21. Wan and catts says:

    BILLION THANKS – My Dear Friend Alyonka!I love sooo much this song, and now I can sign it in Russian! I am very happy 😀 Thank you again! <333

  22. Wan and catts says:

    @晨,我是比較先入為主的人, 我第一次見到Zhenya是OG資格賽第二天, 所以我第一次看到Zhenya的Moscow Nights的ribbon時, 穿的就是那件粉紅色的衣服. 因此我一直都比較喜歡她穿粉紅色那件Leotard跳Moscow Nights.and 不好意思, 這篇文章要再等一點時間才會完成然後PO出來。

    莫斯科郊外的晚上这套带操真的很美,卡娜是公主,在繁星点点的莫斯科郊外的晚上翩翩起舞,我更喜欢粉红色的衣服
