When Vesselin Stanev gave a recital in the Rachmaninov Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire in 2000, the Russian press reviews exclaimed in enthusiasm: "… Remember the name of Vesselin Stanev, he will amaze us in the years to come." (Valentina Torbina, Evening Club, 2000). This review is significant, as the pianist was prizewinner of the P. I. Tchaikovsky International Competition (1982) and a student in Prof. Dmitry Bachkirov's class (1983-1988) at the Moscow Conservatory. The citizens of Moscow also first witnessed the beginning of his career. In the following 12 years Vesselin Stanev specialized with Alexis Weisenberg in Paris and played at a number of prestigious international festivals. He was also soloist at concerts with prominent orchestras like the Bamberg Symphonic Orchestra under Armin Jordan, the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte Carlo, the Lille Symphony Orchestra, the Youth Orchestra of Paris, etc. He has given successful recitals in most of the important European musical centres and has toured in Japan. He is also a regular participant in Bulgaria's festivals: Varna Summer, Sofia Music Weeks, Apollonia.
Gega New has released up to now three CDs of Vesselin Stanev (GD 111, GD 219, GD 241).

CELTIC INFLUENCES

CELTIC INFLUENCES
ID: GD267
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

The ancient Celts appeared in Europe eight to ten centuries before the birth of Christ. Travelling through the whole territory of Eurasia, they were exposed to the cultural influence of the local tribes which inhabited these lands. Thus, along with the Celtic core, their tradition is also influenced by elements of the native tribal groups. In order to show these influences, the three musicians make a music survey of the regions that have enriched the Celtic culture.

The legendary pianist Emil Gilels noted about him: "Anton Dikov's art does honour to his country, and his performances stand out for their wonderful preparation, freshness, and nobleness of style." Anton Dikov graduated from the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov State Academy of Music in Sofia under Prof. Lyuba Encheva and furthered his studies in France under Nadia Boulanger, Artur Rubinstein and Robert Casadesus.

DIMITAR NENOV - COMPOSITIONS

DIMITAR NENOV - COMPOSITIONS
ID: GD258
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Bulgaria's liberation from the Ottoman occupation (1878) created conditions for the development of professional culture in Bulgaria. Up to then the only cultural product was present in the folk tradition. From the first half of the 20th century onwards the arts marked a rapid development. Many talented Bulgarians returned to their country and lay the foundations of the Bulgarian national culture. Dimitar Nenov (1902-1953) was among the representatives of the Bulgarian composers' school of that time. He was a brilliant composer and pianist, a talented architect, an original thinker, piano pedagogue and active public figure. He graduated in architecture in Germany and then went on to study piano, theory of music and composition under the tuition of well-known professors at the Dresden Conservatory. Later he specialized in piano in Poland, graduated from the Music Academy of Bologna, Italy, and in 1937 became Professor in piano at the State Academy of Music in Sofia. Besides being a pedagogue, he also worked actively for establishing the Contemporary Music Composers' Association in Bulgaria, gave many concerts in his country and abroad. He also created a large quantity of works where he united the ideas of the European musicians together with his aspiration for ethnical sounding of the musical work. The two compositions included in this CD are an illustration of his concept. They were composed during the period 1932-1939. The toccata was conceived as a piano variant and was later orchestrated by the great Bulgarian composer Lazar Nikolov (Dimiter Nenov's student).
The Bulgarian pianist Anton Dikov, whose teachers were Nadia Boulanger, Arthur Rubinstein and Robert Kasadeseau, performs the piano solo of the concerto. He has concertised successfully in Europe, the USA, South America, and Asia and is a holder of many prestigious awards from international competitions. The remarkable performance of the Rousse Philharmonic Orchestra is due to a large extent to its conductor, Alipi Naidenov - a prominent Bulgarian conductor who has given numerous concerts and made many recordings in Bulgaria and in other European countries.

STUART- IVANOV DUO
ID: GD340
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

Pianist Svetozar Ivanov has always surprised the listener with the interesting programs that he records. He definitely has an affinity for music of the 20th century and the end of the 19th century. His previous two CDs released by Gega New - Vers la flamme (GD 322) and Naked Tango (GD 327) include mainly works by Debussy, Berg, Schoenberg, Scriabin, Satie, Nazareth, Helps, Tisdall, Stravinsky, Barber. In his latest album Svetozar Ivanov concentrates again on 20th century music. Together with the violinist Carolyn Stuart they present the composer Nikolai Roslavets, who is almost unknown and very rarely performed. In the 20s of the last century, however, Roslavets was among the most famous Russian authors. He was president of the prestigious Association of Contemporary Music, a member of the first Soviet Composers’ Union, chief editor of the journal Muzykalnaya Kultura (Musical Culture), and a highly regarded composer and teacher. After Josef Stalin rose to power the Russian Association of Proletarian Musicians began its attacks on the Association of Contemporary Music, and on experimental artists. Roslavets was pronounced “decadent and formalist”, an “enemy of the people” and by the end of the decade was stripped of his prestigious positions. Many of his works were lost, stolen, or destroyed. The Duo Carolyn Stuart - Svetozar Ivanov have managed to collect some of the works that have survived. A part of them have never been released or performed before. This is a world premiere recording of some of his unpublished miniatures.
Carolyn Stuart currently serves as Associate Professor of Music at the University of South Florida and as chair and jury member for the Rutenberg International Chamber Music Festival and Competition. She has presented master classes at universities and conservatories throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. She often performs at concerts in North America and Europe. An eloquent interpreter of modern music, Ms. Stuart avidly collaborates with current composers and has been a member of the celebrated new music ensemble Quorum. Svetozar Ivanov was born in Bulgaria and graduated at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov National Conservatory in Sofia. Mr. Ivanov holds a degree from the University of Michigan (DMA). Svetozar Ivanov is Associate Professor of Piano at University of South Florida and has often served on juries for prestigious music competitions and festivals.
