Throughout the history of the Shanghai-POP, females have mostly played the role of singers. While there is such a modern wonder woman, who not only sings, but also excels in composing lyrics and music. Persisting in her musical career in the Shanghai-POP industry, which was dominated by male composers at the time, Liang Ping stands out as a remarkably talented individual. This lecture traces the ups and downs of Liang Ping's life as a musician, and leads to the vicissitude of Shanghai-POP industry in the 1930s and 1940s, from the northern to the southern expansion of Szechuan Road. It also examines how Zhongshan natives in Guangdong Province became the pioneers of the modern life and music of Shanghai. Amidst the whirlwind of history, the lecture prompts reflection on the individual struggle between commercial success and artistic integrity, or alternatively, forging a path less travelled of eclecticism.


在“时代曲”的历史中,女性大多充当演唱者的角色。而有这么一位摩登奇女子,她不仅能歌还善于自己作词作曲,在当时以男性词曲家为主的“时代曲”行业中坚持自己的音乐事业,她就是才女梁萍。本讲座以音乐才女梁萍的人生起伏为起点,牵引出从四川路北端到南端上世纪30-40年代上海“时代曲”工业的兴衰历史,以及广东中山人如何成为海派摩登生活与音乐的开创者。在历史漩涡中作为个体的音乐人,又应该如何在商业与独立,亦或开创折中路线中做出选择。
