Andrea: It lasts from July to September and if you love music, especially classical music, I would highly recommend it!

Feifei: But you don't have to love only classical music 古典乐 to enjoy the Proms. 在每年的音乐会上,来自世界各地的音乐家都会前来献艺。


Andrea: Hello, I'm Andrea. This is On the Town.

Feifei: 大家好,我是冯菲菲。在今天的《都市掠影》节目中,我们将和大家一起走进这个每年一度的音乐盛会。夏季逍遥音乐会已经成为了英国文化的一部分,一个惯例 a British institution, 至今已有一百多年的历史。


Andrea: And someone else thinks that going along to watch is very good for the soul and the brain.

Feifei: Oh yes, 音乐对我们的情感和思想是有很大影响。但是我觉得有趣的是另外一位女士说她非常喜欢 being up close to the performers. I wonder what she meant by that?


Andrea: Well, as well as the seating around the Royal Albert Hall, there's also a large area right in front of the stage where people can stand and listen to the concerts. So you can really be up close to the musicians.

Feifei: How wonderful to stand so close to the stage 舞台。观众站得离舞台很近,所以可以很清楚地看到演奏家们和他们手中的各种乐器。

Andrea: And what's even better, is that it doesn't cost very much to stand and watch these fantastic classical concerts. It only costs £5 a ticket!

Feifei: 5镑一张票?Wow! That's very affordable 便宜,能买得起。Kate Finch


是夏季逍遥音乐会的一位工作人员。她给我们讲述了 1895 年由 Henry Wood 发起的第一个夏季逍遥音乐会。

Feifei: 逍遥音乐会的宗旨是让大众来欣赏古典乐。Kate says that ordinary people 普通老百姓,the working man 工薪阶层通过音乐会这个平台也有机会来听古典乐。


Feifei: 那最后一场音乐会有什么特别之处呢?

Andrea: Take a listen to find out.


At the Last Night of the Proms people wave flags

Feifei: 接下来人们就会疯狂起来。有些人会吹哨子 whistles, 喇叭 hooters, 手中摇摆着英国米字旗 Union Jacks.

Andrea: The woman says people 'let their hair down'.

Feifei: 如果你 'let your hair down', 意思是你完全放松,尽情享受。


Andrea: The other woman said that the Last Night of The Proms is like an end of term party. I remember having those at university!

Feifei: Oh yes – end of term parties. 英国学生在每学期结束的时候,都会开个派对来一起庆祝。对于逍遥音乐会来说,最后一场音乐会就是一个狂欢之夜。It must be magical!


Andrea: I know where I'm going this summer!

Feifei: Definitely! 今天的节目就到这里,记得收听更多BBC Learning English 的精彩节目。感谢收听,下次再会。Bye!

Andrea: Bye!
