Dire Straits в «Огнях Уфы» (12.04.2014)

Концерт The Dire Straits в «Огнях Уфы» начался как настоящий спектакль: с мягкого, вкрадчивого вступления. По затемненной сцене разлился сиреневый свет, и зазвучала первая мелодия. Это было поэтапное вступление: начал композицию саксофон, поддержали клавиши, поддержал их невесомый барабанный ритм — и, наконец, сочно зазвучали гитары, обозначая переход «к делу».

Теперь сцена освещалась в полную силу, и зрители могли хорошенько разглядеть легендарных музыкантов. Роскошную гриву волос улыбчивого Криса Уайта с саксофоном в руках, моложавого и сияющего радостью гитариста и солиста Теренса Рейса, загадочного клавишника Алана Кларка в пижонистой шляпе и остальных весьма колоритных музыкантов.

Начали с ласковой лирики «Private Investigations». Словно давая зрителям привыкнуть к их появлению на сцене, присмотреться и настроиться на нужный лад. Потом пошло по нарастающей:  зазвучала «Walk of Life»…

Вообще я собиралась сидеть чинно и благородно на том месте, которое прописано у меня в билете. Во-первых, охранники сурово поглядывали на публику. А публика вся сидела на своих местах. «Ну, — думаю, — и я посижу». Но стоило зазвучать «Walk of Life», как ноги сами пустились в пляс. Я вскочила с места, протиснулась меж рядами и пристроилась у балконного парапета. Место было идеальным: за моей спиной уже не было зрительских кресел, и я никому не мешала. А прямо передо мной была сцена — как на ладони. Тут я и проплясала весь концерт, и никто не сделал мне ни одного замечания.

Это была по-настоящему живая музыка. Интеллигентный рок, как назвали ее в пресс-релизе. Мелодичный, красочный, многоголосый. И музыканты давали насладиться им сполна, украшая песни длинными многогранными инструментальными обрамлениями. Освещение очень грамотно подчеркивало настроение каждой композиции.

Артисты сами кайфовали (по-другому и не скажешь) от всего происходящего: улыбались, подмигивали друг другу, пританцовывали. Я смотрела на их сияющие лица и непринужденные движения, и легко верила в то, что все это не постановочное «улыбаемся и машем», а искреннее удовольствие от процесса. Они играли с видимым упоением.

«Дайр Стрейтс» оказались артистами потрясающей харизмы: обаятельными, открытыми, улыбчивыми, без малейшей заносчивости. Они и держались просто и по-свойски, и одеты были совершенно буднично (не считая шляпы Кларка). В общем, никакого пафоса, будто это не зарубежные звезды, а местные парни, решившие собрать своих знакомых на музыкальный вечер. Все это создавало приятную, раскрепощающую атмосферу.

Вокал Теренса Рейса оказался удивительно похожим на Нопфлера. Очень. В том смысле, что даже если и не очень похож, то интонации, тембр, тон — все в десяточку. Поэтому я не разделяла скепсиса тех, кто говорит, что DS без Нопфлера — это уже не DS. Согласна, легендарный солист — лицо группы, ее визитная карточка. Но на этом концерте не было повода впадать в ностальгию и страдать от нехватки чего-либо (или кого-либо): группа справлялась великолепно, мгновенно окружив слушателей своим фирменным очарованием и от души балуя  стильным звучанием.

Песни-«зажигалки» грамотно чередовались с балладами. Эффектные проигрыши между композициями позволяли перевести дух, посмаковать послевкусие предыдущей песни и подготовиться к следующей. Было много соло — гитарных, саксофонных. Особенным было выступление Кларка: музыкант словно остался один на сцене, наедине со своими клавишами и затаившим дыхание залом.

Была «Telegraph Road», переходящая от лиричного к драйвовому звучанию. Была по-домашнему уютная сказка «Romeo and Juliet». Был настоящий рок — «Tunnel of Love». Была озорная, танцевальная «Two Young Lovers».
Был сочный, душевный блюз — моя любимая Your Latest Trick, от которой веет ночной романтикой и мурашки бегут по коже.

После нее свет погас практически полностью — и зазвучала «Brothers in Arms». Крис Уайт отложил в сторону саксофон, взял флейту. И полилась печальная, проникновенная мелодия, неизменно берущая за душу. Музыканты играли эту песню негромко, а вокал звучал и особенно доверительно. Публика слушала, затаив дыхание, и даже когда композиция стал потихоньку стихать, никто не перебивал ее аплодисментами до самых последних нот. И лишь затем грянули овации.

После этой баллады просто необходимо было взбодриться, поэтом следующей заиграла задорная «Sultans of Swing». Когда отзвучала ее основная вокальная часть, на передний план вновь вышел Крис Уайт со своим саксофоном и заиграл пронзительную, вдумчивую  мелодию. Вскоре из полумрака сцены е нему вышел Теренс Рейс, осторожно вплетя перебор своих струн в его музыку — словно спрашивая разрешения. Уайт развернулся к нему, и начался диалог гитары и саксофона. Артисты играли, стоя друг напротив друга и с улыбками глядя друг другу в глаза. А затем вспыхнул свет, вступили все музыканты, и началась настоящая феерия звука и света, неистовая кульминация концерта.

После этого группа тепло попрощалась со своими слушателями: положив руки друг другу на плечи, они дружно поклонились и поаплодировали залу, помахав всем — и партеру, и балконам. Но разгоряченная публика, разумеется, не собиралась их отпускать и, искупав любимцев в бурных благодарных аплодисментах, начала дружно скандировать «бис».

Артисты с удовольствием остались на сцене и пригласили всех подняться с кресел и потанцевать. Отдельное приглашение поступило и для «балконных» зрителей, поэтому обрадованная я, недолго думая, бросилась к лестнице и едва ли не кубарем слетела по ней к сцене.

Здесь уже столпились самые пылкие поклонники, но и мне нашлось местечко. Вот уж где в полную силу чувствовался весь драйв! Мы от души зажгли под классику — «Money for Nothing», артисты улыбались персонально каждому слушателю, и все это очень походило на настоящий праздник.

Ну, а на последок Теренс исполнил умиротворяющую «Portobello Belle», тем самым пожелав нам спокойной ночи после концерта.

После выступления Dire Straits еще долго не уходили со сцены, с удовольствием раздавая автографы и пожимая руки восторженных и благодарных слушателей. Публика, под стать артистам, оказалась очень интеллигентной, и выражала свои комплименты на грамотном английском.
