Like music? Then you might want to check out the Montreux Jazz Festival.

你喜欢音乐吗?那你可能会想看看蒙特勒爵士音乐节(Montreux Jazz Festival)。

It’s underway on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland. If you happen to be — like us — elsewhere, you can stream the concerts live on the festival’s website.

这个音乐节目前正在瑞士的日内瓦湖畔举行。如果你恰好像我们一样身在别处,可以在音乐节的网站上观看直播。

Once devoted almost entirely to European jazz, it has evolved into something far more inclusive. Its founder, Claude Nobs, was criticized for continuing to use the term “jazz” to describe the event even after other styles of music were introduced.

这个音乐节曾经几乎全是欧洲爵士乐,如今它已经发展得更为全面了。音乐节的创办者克洛德·诺布斯(Claude Nobs)曾因在引入了其他风格的音乐后,仍沿用“爵士”这个说法而受到批评。

“Montreux Jazz is a brand name, and most of the people know what to expect,” Mr. Nobs, who died in 2013, said in a 2006 interview with Billboard magazine.

“蒙特勒爵士是一个品牌名,大多数人知道能期待什么,”2006年,诺布斯在《公告牌》杂志的一次采访中说道。他于2013年去世。

This year, the festival’s eclectic program included sold-out concerts by the British pop stars The Pet Shop Boys and the American R&B singer Lauryn Hill. The Senegalese singer Youssou N’Dour is scheduled to perform on the final day, next Saturday.

今年,音乐节的内容丰富多彩,包括票已全部售罄的英国流行组合“宠物店男孩”(Pet Shop Boys)及美国R&B歌手劳琳·希尔(Lauryn Hill)的演唱会。塞内加尔歌手尤苏·恩杜尔(Youssou N’Dour)的表演在音乐节的最后一日,也就是下周六。

The festival has also been a prolific venue for recording. The pianist Bill Evans recorded a Grammy-winning album there in the second year, kicking off a series that comprises what is now an extensive audio archive recognized by Unesco.

这个音乐节也一直是盛产现场录音的场所。钢琴家比尔·埃文斯(Bill Evans)于音乐节的第二年在那里录制了一张赢得格莱美奖的专辑,自此开启了一个系列,这个内容广泛的音频档案还受到了联合国教科文组织的认可。
